Rate noted is based on monthly rate. This was a nice well maintained campground. We were in a site with a new electrical post and others had been replaced/upgraded. Wifi was limited to an hour then you had to log on again. It was fun seeing the 2 burros and 2 longhorns in their field. Tons of deer are there both white tail and axis. A few rally groups came by since they have great facilities for them. We would definitely stop here again.

Rate is based on monthly stay with all utilities included. This was a great a campground. There always seemed to be a lot of yellow KOA shirts around doing things to keep the place in excellent shape. As mentioned the city bus in front of the KOA was great to go into San Antonio. WiFi worked well. Lots of friendly folks here as well as office staff. They are in the process of building a new pool which should be finished before summer time. We will definitely stop here again.

We lucked out and got a spot at this campground. Paved/gravel roads and cement sites and patio. The campground was full of very friendly winter Texans (Wisconsin, Michigan, Minnesota, Iowa etc folks). A lot of activities were offered. The only negative was that WiFi in our spot was iffy at times and Verizon cell phones did not work at the site, we had to walk close to the office to get reception. We would definitely come back to this well maintained campground and great office staff.

We used this campground since it was close to friends living in New Braunfels. Problems were- wifi never worked that great - cable never worked that great (used over the air antenna) - sewer connection was 11" above the ground so I had to walk the sewer hose to empty it. Residents were not that friendly. Hardly anyone waved to us or stopped to say hello. We will not come back to this campground.

This was a former KOA. Just off I-10 enough not to have road noise. Site was level. We had full hookups. For us the only negative was lack of internet service, even though they said WI-FI was available, and lack of ability to connect to Verizon 3g. The park was clean and sites had nice room between them. For an over night we would stop again.

Rate noted is based on our weeks stay. The roads are paved and the sites are cement slabs that are starting to crack in a number of sites. Utilities were ok, cable had a number of stations and Wi-Fi was a bit slow. Road noise is evident and at times loud. You are right next to Loop 289 and the frontage road. We will probably stop at another park not as noisy next time.

This was OK for an overnight just off Route 87 between Lubbock,TX and San Angelo,TX. This is a new campground with new utilities and good cable and WiFi. Bathrooms were new as well and clean. The campground is full of workers and their families from oil fields and power/wind turbine companies. We went for a walk around the park and everyone was very friendly. When we were there only one site was open. The rest were full. The manager was super friendly. The manager said that about 20 campgrounds would be in the area due to the growth in the oil business. Big Spring was experiencing a triple population growth in less than a year.

Rate noted is based on weekly stay. Park is very clean. Utilities were fine except for the cable connection which did not work at our site but we received all the major networks in hd using our antenna. Staff was friendly, they take you to your site. They have a nice heated indoor pool, but we did not use it. Close to I-40, but noise was not that bad. Take exit 74 off I-40 to avoid going through neighborhoods which is an easier drive into the park. At night you can hear a few train whistles but again not that bad. Fairly close to a Walmart. About 10 miles to Westgate Mall which is a big shopping area. We would stay here again.

This was a nice park that we used on our way from Raton, NM to Amarillo, TX. Owners were very nice. Park has level gravel sites that are well maintained. The park was very clean. Utilities and Wi-Fi were fine. You get a little noise from truck traffic and some from the railroad switching yard opposite the park. We would stay here again.

This was a nice clean KOA that was not near the Interstate. The location was great for us. You can walk to a really nice Chinese Restaurant opposite the park as well as a nice grocery store and a gas station that has a Redbox for dvd rental. The owner was friendly as well as the rest of the staff. Bathrooms were clean, but had painted plywood between the stalls so could use an upgrade. This is pretty much a stop over park for a night or two. We would stay here again.

Of all the RV parks we drove by, we picked the best one in the area. The staff was very friendly. The connections were fine as well as the Wi-Fi. The park is just a quarter mile from Manitou Springs that has interesting shops, restaurants and many natural spring fountains. The park is very close to Garden of the Gods, and you can see Pikes Peak from the park. The only problem I had was parking our pickup. There was no room for it at our site and other neighbors were partially on the park road. If in the area again we would definitely stop here.

This was a unique RV park. It is a mix of mobile homes and RV sites for long term or short term stays. The place had a really nice feel to it. Everyone we talked to was extremely nice. We really liked the Panera breads they had in the club house on Tuesdays, day old but was really fresh. We had a site opposite the club house and were able to pick up the Wi-Fi signal. The sites by the club house are known as "on the square". I recommend you ask for a site there. All sites are back-in. We took the light rail into Denver, this was a 20 minute ride to the center of town near the 16th street mall. Light rail was just a few miles away. We really liked this park and would definitely return.

This is pretty much an overnight campground since there is not too much around Lusk. The woman who owns the place is very nice. When we got there it was pretty warm. She insisted that we hook up the electric and turn on the a/c before we checked in. Our site was a pull-through. All sites are on a nice tan gravel base that feels really clean when you come in. We would definitely stop again.

Rate noted is based on weekly rate. The workampers that manage the place were friendly and helpful. We were guided to our site. Wi-Fi was out for a few days. It took time to get it going then a storm came in and out it went again. Wi-Fi was not reliable. My biggest complaint is that the sites are pretty close to each other. Would like more breathing room. They have a BBQ restaurant by the office but we did not try it. I probably would try another campground in the area next time.

We really liked this RV Park, small but the view of Chimney Rock is right in front of you. All sites are level and pull through. The owner was very friendly. There are a number of coal trains that go by and blow their horns at crossings close to the park during the day and at night, but they did not bother us. They have a small store that the owner was cleaning up and getting ready for the summer season. She said they have a liquor license and was thinking of having a margarita night. She makes homemade waffles used for ice cream cones but we were there too early to sample. We would stop again because of the fantastic view. Also should note that this is close to Scotts Bluff National Monument about 20 miles away.

Nice RV park with some long and level sites. While there we only had 30amp service, water and sewer. I say that because all sites did not have water available because of the weather. 50 amp only had sewer but when the weather gets warmer all sites will be fully functional. WiFi was really bad and cable was bad. Would have said something to the manager but unfortunately we heard he had a stroke the night before we arrived. Fortunately he bounced back and after camping there 4 days were told he was released from the hospital and doing well. Traffic noise from I-80 was not that bad, but then we have dual pane windows. Their swimming pool is in the shape of Nebraska. We would stop again.

This was a great RV park. Sites were pull-through and level on gravel base. The owners were very friendly as well as their friends who helped them out. They just installed a pizza oven in their store/office and are in the process of remodeling a barn into a pub that will serve beer and some food. Wi-Fi worked fine but cable connection was really bad. They had free DVD's you could borrow so we watched a movie at night. Stayed one night, but we would have stayed longer except our schedule and the weather forced us to move on. We would stop here again.

RV Park has nice space between sites, level, and are pull through. What I did not like was the road in the campground which as previously stated has some rather large gravel rock. You really need to drive slowly. The pool was just filled while there and looked nice and clean. The pool was repainted last year, and the owners are looking at re-doing the cement decking. The owners have a sense of humor and have named all the washers and dryers (sudzy suzy, washy wanda etc). Cable and wi-fi worked fine. We would stop here again. Weekly rate.

This was a nice, clean, easy to move your RV around RV park. The restrooms were spotless and looked like ones in a first class hotel. They have a nice community center that doubles as a storm shelter in case of bad weather. Wi-Fi was good after a repeater was replaced while there. Staff in the office were really friendly. They escort you to your site. The roads and sites are all cement. You are close to Dillons, a grocery store maybe 1/2 mile away the most. The only thing I did not like was the closeness of the sites. I would have preferred more breathing room but then when the wind kicked in it was nice having a bit of protection on each side. We would come back. Rate is based on our weekly stay. Pay for 6 nights and 7th is free. They do charge for electric at 10 cents/kWh. They cover the first $20 and you pay over that. Generally you go over during the summer when the a/c is run. When we were there we used our electric fireplace and a small heater during the day and gas furnace at night and early morning.

Nice well kept RV Park. Sites are mostly cement pads and are flat/level but sites drop off for your truck or tow vehicle. There are some gravel roads and gravel sites. Location is a mile to the Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum. Everyone I talked to at the front desk were very friendly. Rate is based on weekly charge. Although you are surrounded by interstates we were surprised at how low the traffic noise was. We would return.

Really friendly office staff. Always had a good laugh when I went in to talk to them. Park roads are pretty wide and paved. Sites are gravel and level. Wi-Fi access through Tengonet with a code required for each device you may want to use. This used to be a trailer park which may explain the wide roads. The park is very close to a super Target and Walmart is probably a mile away. Arlington was convenient to Fort Worth and The Stockyards, Cowboy Stadium and not a bad drive into Dallas. We would definitely stop here again. Rate includes the use of Passport America.

The RV Park is going through an ownership change and currently is only taking cash. They hope to have credit cards up and running mid April, but call first. The Park needs a little TLC. The pool needs to be cleaned out and repainted. Some pull through sites have cement pads, but they are starting to break up, but we were level in ours; other sites are gravel. The RV Park was a former KOA about 7 years ago. The check in office still has that feel. We were there 4 nights and during that time a lot of folks just stopped for the night. A number of Rv's there were seasonal but all looked as though they were taken care of and in good shape. Internet/Wi-Fi was great. The round tables and four chairs at the sites was a nice touch. I hope the owners fix the place up a bit. it is really a nice RV Park and we would return. Rate based on Good Sam discount.

Rate reflects Passport America rate for each night. The WiFi was really bad. We had to pay Verizon so we could use our phone as a hotspot to go online most of the time. My wife met and talked to the owner about this, and he expressed concern and said he would contact the WiFi provider to look into this. We hope he does for future visitors. The grounds are gravel and dirt. There is a lot of dust that kicks up when vehicles go by. Speed limit is 7mph. I found that the staff are the worst speeders in their four wheelers going around. Right opposite the RV Park is a levy all along France Road. Probably a one time thing, but some teenagers threw rocks at another person staying here, as he drove by the levy in a pick-up, probably around 4pm. (The teenagers were on the other side of the levy where people have homes. They broke his windshield.) This park has a shuttle that goes right into the French Quarter as mentioned, for $5 per person. Our last night we listened to a great jazz band in the RV Parks bar/restaurant. Not sure if we would stay here again, but for us the rate was good.

This is by no means a resort. No picnic tables, no fire rings, no pool, no playground, no specified dog area, and the biggest no is there is no one in the office. I should also note that the paved cement road and pads are a bit tight and should have been made wider. When we arrived other campers came out to help. I was waiting for something in the mail and had to rely on another camper to get the package for me. Other reviews here are 10's because, in talking to folks, the snowbirds just put up with the inconveniences because the park has a nice feel, and other RV'ers are pretty friendly, and they don't want to make it sound bad. The owners live about half a mile down the road. The woman who takes your reservation came into the office twice while here for about 2 hours during our week's stay. We will not come back, and others have told me the same. The park has potential but needs to be fixed up properly, and again the office needs to be staffed. We used Passport America for our average weekly rate.

Nice clean RV park. Almost 1 year old. Grounds were clean, cement pads and a paved circular road. Comfortable room between sites. WI-FI was a little iffy at times. Cable connection had a lot of HD stations. Workamper staff and manager in the office were all friendly. Easy to find our spot but they did send someone out to make sure and help us if we needed it. The problem with the sign out front is that because of local ordinances; they had to place it parallel to the road so yes you cannot see it coming from the west. They tried some flags, etc. to draw attention to the entrance, but local officials made them take them down. Rate reflects 10% Good Sam discount. We would return to this park.

Based on older reviews, we did have problems with the WiFi at our site, and cannot say at all that it was the best. Sometimes it just plain did not work, in fact the office was having problems. TV reception was terrible using their cable connection. Campground staff had the cable provider come out. The cable company said that yes, we had a weak TV signal and basically they had to redo the lines. Bugs were a problem, the no-see-ums, and they did bite. Bug spray is a must. If you have a screen room, I suggest you bring it with you. Also the Verizon signal was not that strong, a few calls were dropped. We were in site #9 (back-in) overlooking the lake. This is really a nice setting, some really long pull through sites and a great place for walks, bike riding, etc. Besides what I noted, the older posts were accurate in describing this campground. Rate is based on a monthly stay.

This as stated is an OK campground for a night or two. Sites are pretty close together. Easy off and on from the interstate. Staff was friendly. Our reservation was lost but fortunately they had a spot for us. Used this place to visit family for a few days in nearby Burlington. We used our Good Sam Club for a discount.

Staff were friendly on check in and helped us change dates while there due to our fifth wheel being repaired (in the shop) at Tom Johnson RV which is right next door. This is an easy RV place to get in and out of. Sites are long, basically level, and you are on gravel but the roads are paved. As previously mentioned easy access to either I-85 or I-485. No cable TV but you can pick up local channels in HD using your roof top antenna. I just wish they had Wi-Fi, that would have helped a lot. We stopped here mainly for service on our fifth wheel.

This is an OK place to stay to see Charlotte, visit family etc. since it is so close to the city. The sites are mostly pull through but none are level. You will definitely need blocks for either the front or the back jacks of your RV. You will also need blocks for one side of your RV for the tires. Space between sites is fairly close. There are picnic tables but you need blocks to level them. They do have a laundry room and one bathhouse with showers that were clean. No play area for kids, no pavilion, no dog run. The office is in a single wide trailer. The manager is efficient in checking you in but that is about it. The manager said we could have blocks to level our RV when we made our reservation but when we got there she said we would have to buy them ourselves. The less you have to deal with the manager the better. Rate noted is based on monthly stay.

Nice clean campground with friendly office staff. We were escorted to our site which they seem to do for everyone. Rate noted is a little lower since I cashed in $10 in KOA Rewards Points. The down side to the campground is that it is right next to I-95. Try to get a site as far away from the office as possible to reduce the noise level. This is the second time we have stayed here. It is great for an overnight on your way to your next location. Would stop here again.

Campground was convenient to friends we visited in Pennsylvania. Sites were a little close. There was a pond in the middle of the campground that added to the nice feel of the place. Used the showers in clean restrooms. Used laundry facilities and one machine did not work properly, but the folks in the front office gave us money to redo the load. Wanted to leave early because of hurricane Sandy, but the owner would not make a refund for one night. I can partially understand this but then again I counted this as an emergency move. We ended up spending that night and left the next day as we had planned. We were there 4 nights. We would return if in the area. Rate noted includes Good Sam discount.

We needed a campground close to some towns just over the Connecticut line in New York State. Checked into some others in the area and they were more expensive, plus in late October a lot of places were closed. This campground is open till Nov. 1st. Bathrooms were next to the office and needed updating but were clean. Cable is available, but you need to hook up a box to the back of your TV which they provide, we opted not to do this. A fair amount of seasonal sights. Campers were all friendly and gave a big wave back when we went for a walk. Coming into the campground felt awkward on a single lane narrow driveway that was oneway. They have a second driveway to use as an exit. The owner was very friendly at check-in. I'd say this is a good campground for a few nights.

Staff very courteous as previously mentioned. Campground was well kept. Cable TV available for $2 per day. We had a full hookup site with 50amp. More to see in the area than I expected. Bridge of Flowers in Shelburne Falls was great, also a great coffee house that had a blues band one evening that we really enjoyed. The swimming pool was closed, but they have a solar system set up to heat it. There is a nice little restaurant right at the entrance to the campground. We would definitely return.

Nice little campground. We had a 50amp full hookup. They had the old fuse types you had to pull out and in to turn off and on. All sites were back-ins. Cell phone service on Verizon was sketchy. We did get Wi-Fi using our own amplifier to pull in the signal. Folks that were in the office were very friendly and took us to the site. The worst part about the campground was the 1/4 mile dirt road to the entrance, entrance was paved. The dirt road was a real washboard so you just have to drive real slow: 5mph max. We would return. Rate is based on Passport America.

Campground for us was in a perfect location. Only two miles to the entrance to Acadia National Park. Bar Harbor is 7 miles away and there is a free shuttle bus that only takes 15 minutes to get to the center of Bar Harbor if you do not want to drive. We picked one of a handful of 50 amp sites. On top of the hill next to the laundry are the prime sites but only seven that have great views of the bay but these are all back in. They have a nice mix of open sites and heavily wooded sites. TV antenna can only pick up a few channels. As mentioned they do not take credit cards or reservations. When you arrive they let you go through the campground to pick out your site before you pay. We would definitely return. Office is run by friendly workampers who have many years experience from working here.

As previously stated new owners are friendly and working hard on improvements. New pool was open. Owners were waiting for pool heater to be hooked up which will be a nice touch. We had a nice site with privacy but theses sites are vanishing quickly because the owners are putting in a lot of seasonals. I doubt that if we wanted to stop here next year we would find an adequate site for our 37' RV. Cable lines were lying on top of the ground as well as water lines and sewer pipes. Labor day weekend was noisy. Folks next to us were loud after quiet time and started using foul language in their conversations but they were all gone in 2 days. Holderness is where they filmed On Golden Pond. The tenting area was nicely set in the woods. Won't stop here again since all the good sites we saw are being converted to seasonal.

They overbooked our original site so they gave us a break on a back-in site on the lake. All lake sites are back-ins but the water and electric are on the opposite side from where you normally hook up so you have to run the power cord and water hose under your rv to connect, a bit strange. This campground is 95% seasonal but folks next to us and others we met were friendly. The only person that was not friendly was a woman, one of the owners, who in fact was almost nasty and very defensive on some simple questions. Big rigs are not a problem but chances of getting on the lake are slim, they only have a handful of sites available there. Restrooms were older and could use a makeover. They were cleaned daily on weekends but I don't think they were cleaned daily during the week. Seasonals were there on the weekend but left Sunday evening so things were quieter and less activity going on during the work week. On a side note Barker Mfg, the folks that make those blue totes are located in Battle Creek which is about 40 minutes away. We drove there and picked up a tote for when sewer connections are not available. We will not stop here again.

Our rate was based on being a customer of AR mail forwarding in Sioux Falls ($150/wk). We stayed here to register our vehicles, get drivers license, register to vote. Location was close to downtown area, maybe 15 minutes from the falls in town and 5 minutes from where the big mall is and all the stores surrounding it. Highway traffic noise did not bother us that much. They just built a brand new bathroom. Campground is really in 3 parts. 1 part is for seasonals, 1 part for regular camping and 1 part with efficiency apartments (looks like a motel). Managers were super friendly, and lived in their RV during the week. Big rigs are no problem. We would stay here again if in the Sioux Falls area.

We camped here to see Custer State Park which is just a few miles from the campground and Mt Rushmore about 20 minutes away. We fell in love with the campground and Custer. The area was fantastic. Bathrooms were spotless. You have a private room with toilet, sink, and shower. Campground is nestled in tall pine trees. We definitely would return. In fact we liked it so much we will be workamping there next summer. By the way they have two Tipis, a covered wagon you can rent, and a tent area with covers over a deck that are next to again sparkling clean restrooms.

This campground was flooded out by Irene a year ago. They have brand new bathrooms, pool that is 30'x60' has a new liner, they have a new open pavilion as well. We had 50 amp/water/sewer/Wi-Fi/cable TV. Half the sites are seasonal and a number are month to month. Sites are really nice and large. Big rig friendly. Husband and wife owners live in a large travel trailer behind the office. They are both very friendly. Activities for kids and adults. Each year everyone has to move out of their site, and if they want can store their RV up on a hill area. Owners say this cuts down on a lot of clutter seasonals build up. Definitely a nice campground that we would return to.

This is a nice campground filled with a number of seasonal folks from Vermont, they are very friendly. The campers put on a play while here that was really funny. A mystery play with Lucy and Desi in it. We had 50amp/water/Wi-Fi/cable TV but no sewer. We were here 4 days so that was not a problem. They had a dump station. Rules state to have your pets on a leash, but the owners let their golden retriever and lab run freely. As previously mentioned, watch out for the 11' bridge. We had to go just another 4 miles to avoid it. Right down the road is a man that raises chickens for eggs. We bought a dozen jumbo fresh eggs for $2. We would stop at this campground again. The owner reminded us of Julia Childs. She was friendly during check-in. This is a Passport America campground. We paid $30 a night for 2 nights and $15 a night for 2 nights.

We stayed here a week while going through the routine of becoming South Dakota residents. Weekly rate is $150+tax on referral from Alternative Resources. They just built a brand new bath house with showers. Did not look like it was even used yet. They are working on expanding the campground by adding more sites. There is an old section where you would be crowded in, the new section is more spacious. You need to ask for the new section when making a reservation. We liked the location being right in town. Close to the downtown area and Empire Mall, just off I-29. We will come back, in fact plan another stop here after seeing the Black Hills.

Campground was easy off and on to I-80. Grounds well kept, Wi-Fi worked. Sites were a bit close. My biggest negative was all the noise from I-80. Stayed at other KOAs close to the highway but this one is definitely noisy. Maybe because the highway is above the campground and the campground sits low to it. The town of Newton was a fun town to see. Probably would not stay here again.

Nice campground, some sites have cement formed patios but cost more. Stayed here over the Indy 500 weekend. Sites were full but folks were courteous, no loud noise at night. Wi-Fi did not work all that great. Biggest complaint was all the workcampers speeding around on the golf carts. Signs posted 5 MPH: folks in the carts drove much too fast kicking up dust as they drove by. Convenient to I-70.

My wife and I really liked this campground. It is located on top of a hill, very peaceful. Had to use one board to level the trailer. Gravel sites and long. Electric, water, and sewer were easy hookups. Grounds are well kept. Owners live in a nice house in the campground opposite the check in office. The wife that checked us in was very friendly. She said they have owned the campground for 9 years and are always working to keep things in shape and it shows. Laundry room had an iron and ironing board. We would stop here again.
