For overnight - just ok. The location to I-95 makes it very convenient and the pull thrus are long enough for any all rig combos. But the park utilities are not well maintained. The electric is a low pedestal and the breaker was in a box by a tree. We had 30amp since no 50 amp was available. The sewer connection is in the back of the site, while the water and electric were near the front. Our water spigot had no knob so we needed pliers to turn it on and off. The cable picture has been improved since our last visit a few years ago. The dog park looked great. The dumpster is near the entrance which is a long way from most sites. We will probably use another campground next time.

I reviewed this park in previous years, giving 9's and 10's. If you are a short term guest, still a 9, but as a seasonal, a 7 at best. Why? First, the owners have yet to make the necessary Wi-Fi improvements which is unacceptable!! Next, the grounds and landscaping are no longer "pristine". Lack of mowing, no mulch, and more weeds give the grounds an unkempt appearance. The grounds crew does more riding around in golf carts than working. This park calls itself a "resort." It used to be, and it can be again with a little effort on the part of the new managers.

We used this campground for an overnight stop. It is a bit off the interstate, with lots of traffic near the exit. We had requested a pull through site so that we could keep the tow car connected, and they accommodated us. Check in was efficient and the staff was pleasant. Our site was long, but in reality, it was 2 sites back to back. When this campground is full, it would mean lots of RV's back to back. The site was very narrow, neighbors on both sides very close. The showers were clean, only shower curtains for privacy. The water was hot, but without much pressure. The Wi-Fi worked fine, we had an open sky for our roof sat dish, and a good Verizon signal. Overall, pleased with this campground.

We used this campground for an overnight stop. Check in was quick, owner and staff very pleasant. The sites near the front have large, lovely shade trees. We asked for a satellite dish friendly site, the owner escorted us to the back of the campground. The sites there are in the open. Our site was long enough to keep the tow car connected to the coach. The site was adequate in length, gravel pad with grass between sites. We thought it was a bit pricey, but the location was good, easy on off the interstate.

We enjoyed our stay here, but there is good and bad about the campground. The good; Passport America rate for 50amp $17 was a very good value: site was long and pretty level with escort. The staff was friendly with lots of local sightseeing knowledge. Now, the not so good; the placement of the water and sewer connections was awkward at best. The water connection is below ground level, our site did not have an extension and we had to remove our pressure regulator to hook up our hose. The sewer connection is on an odd angle, again making it difficult to screw on the sewer hose. The camp host came by and did get an extension and did the reconnecting for us with our pressure regulator. The is road noise, we were in the row closest to the road. Overall, excellent value and staff: that overrides the few negatives. We would return.

WE loved this campground, it is exactly what we want - clean facilities, easy in/out, long level sites, and utilities in good working order. This park has all of that, and toss in a free breakfast of eggs and pancakes! The park is gravel pads with large grassy areas between sites, for some of the most generous sites we have seen. Each site has a picnic table and grill, but no fire pits. Wi-Fi worked well, no cable, but most sites are sat dish friendly. There are some trees, but our site had a clear view for roof top dish. Our Verizon signal was strong. Great experience.

We requested an easy in/out site as we had to take the RV out for service. We got one of the pull throughs, we appreciated that they honored our request. But, the electric pedestal is located in the site entry drive, you have to be very careful pulling in. Our sewer connection was too high, making it difficult to dump. The site was plenty long and level, but neighbors are very close. The cable was ok, but limited selection, and the Tengo Wi-Fi did not work at all at our site. Overall, not impressed, other than the location was what we needed.

This is a great campground. Our site was a long, level pull through with all utilities in good working order. The RV is parked on gravel, there is a concrete patio and plenty of grassy area between sites. We did notice that there are some sites set up in pods: 4 that form a group, good if you are traveling with others. Those sites were asphalt parking pads. We enjoyed the indoor pool and hot tub. They pick up your trash at your site every morning. The only slight negatives; a little pricey and the Wi-Fi is Tengo. We would return.

We enjoyed our stay here. I would have liked to have seen more campground signs along the route, although we did find it ok. Check in was easy, our rate is with 15% Escapee discount. We had a pull through, level concrete pad. The utilities are in good working order, cable channels a bit limited, Wi-Fi worked great, and a clear sky for satellite dish. Each site has a picnic table, and well maintained grassy area between sites. The indoor pool was downright cold!! Brrr. The mills in the area are stinky, not overwhelming, but noticeable smell in the air. We took the jet boat tour that leaves from the marina right at the campground, very convenient and we enjoyed the day trip. Overall, a very good campground, and if ever back in the area, we would return.

If you need a campground in the Coeur d'Alene area, this park might suit you. The staff was friendly and helpful. The utilities; water (was warned at check in that they have high water pressure, so make sure you use a regulator. We always do: but appreciated the info), electric and sewer all fine. Our site was a level pull in. With that said, we did not like this park. We are fulltimers, and stay in a variety of parks, but this one was not a good value. $45 a night: no usable Wi-Fi and the very limited cable was too fuzzy to watch. I expect to get what I pay for. Advertise Wi-Fi and cable: then deliver!! Our site was right along the road, maybe 5 ft away, and the traffic in and out of the park and the marina traffic was awful. We did not enjoy sitting outside, it was too noisy. Our site had adequate space, grass well maintained, but only enjoyed it in the evening when the traffic settled down. We would not return to this campground, but it is a popular spot. We saw many RV's without reservations turned away, so there are folks that like this park. It is packed, lots of families and kids, but everyone is respectful of other campers.

We enjoyed our stay here, site was very nice and facilities are well maintained. Check in was quick and efficient. Our site was a pull through, plenty long. It did have a slight downslope, we had to fully extend front jacks to level. Power, water, Wi-Fi, and cable TV all in good working order. The colorful flowerbeds are beautiful. Yes, there are train tracks behind the campground, but the train did not bother us. It rumbles, but no horn tooting. We would be sitting outside in our spacious "front yard," and barely noticed the passing train. For us, a non issue. We would definitely stay here again if passing through.

Easy on/off I-90, resulting in convenience and some road noise. We had a pull through, 50 amp. Our first night, our EMS was triggered a dozen times due to low voltage. The campground was full, it was very hot, and happened from dinnertime to early evening. It was very annoying, but very glad for the EMS. We were there for a week, and it only happened that first evening. We had cable at our site, but had a clear view for roof sat dish. The Wi-Fi was free with a good signal. The laundry was adequate, but there was no info on length of time for w/d cycles, causing us to constantly check status. A sign on the wall would help. There isn't anything here for kids, no pool or playground. The staff was efficient and friendly, offering suggestions for things to do in the area. We would use this campground again.

We called ahead for a reservation, glad we did as they were full and turning several drop-ins away. Bring cash or check, no credit cards. The road: 2/10ths of a mile to this cg, is very narrow. No way two vehicles can pass each other, but we did not encounter another vehicle while in the motorhome. We had a great site, long, pretty level with a huge front yard. The utilities were in good working order, but the sewer is pretty far back. We just positioned the RV based on that. The owners, and staff were pleasant and helpful. The cable TV and free Wi-Fi were excellent, Verizon signal was strong. The showers were private and clean. The trash area requires going up 3 steps. Overall: it was quiet, clean, and easy on/off I-90. We would return if ever in the area.

The owner and staff are pleasant and helpful, suggesting a non road construction route to the park. We stayed 1 week, lots to see and do in the area. The campground was our base, we did not spend lots of time here. Our site was ok, level with good hookups, but not very long. We just fit, barely. We had to ask our neighbor to move his truck, we could not navigate the motorhome out of our site. The showers and toilets were clean, but there is just a curtain for privacy, no thank you. Laundry had a good number of machines. The wi-Fi was free and good, with the exception of our final night. We had a good Verizon signal, and clear sky for the satellite dish. We would return, decent campground reasonably priced.

We used this as an overnight, easy on/off I-90. Our site was long enough, barely, to keep the toad attached. The site was fairly level, good electric and cable, didn't hook up water or sewer. The bath house was clean, but the showers lacked privacy, flimsy curtain.

We enjoyed our stay, there is a lot to like here, but it is not perfect. It is off the main road, so very quiet at night. The sites are long and level, with adequate grass space between sites. The owners and staff are hard working, friendly, and helpful. There was entertainment one night with root beer floats, free. There was a nice selection of dvd's in the office that can be borrowed. There is no cable TV, but clear sky for satellite dish. We had a strong Verizon signal. The Wi-Fi was free, but weak. What we didn't like; the dumpsters were filled the day we arrived, and no trash truck for 4 days. The trash was overflowing, smelled, and flies: making sitting outside our coach unpleasant. One night the water from the cg into the RV was dirty brown. It cleared up a few hours later. The negatives were only temporary issues, we enjoyed our stay.

We used this campground while touring the Badlands and the Missile Base. Our price reflects full hookups + cable + tax. The sewer connection was in the very back of the site, so you need to either position your RV or have a long sewer hose. Our site was level, and all utilities in good working order. We had a good Verizon signal, and clear sky for roof satellite. We would use this campground again.

Our campsite was adequate, utilities in good working order, good cable selection, and strong free Wi-Fi. So why the 5 rating? Lack of customer service! We called the day prior to arrival, asking for a pull through. During that phone call, I asked the camp worker for directions. She could not give me the exit number, although it turned out it didn't matter, there were billboards galore with that information. We arrive early afternoon, and the office is locked. Not a soul around, no check in packet, no campground map: nothing. We walked around and found the pull through sites, and took one. We got set up. I went to the office later in the day, and was told that the site we picked was assigned to another camper, and we should move to our assigned site. Now how were we supposed to know what site was ours when there was no information available upon arrival? In the end, we did not have to move, but it was aggravating to say the least. We will try another campground the next time in the area.

This is a great 1-2 night stay campground, easy on/off I 90 and close to Mitchell shopping and tourist stops. Our rate includes Passport America discount w/50 amp. Our site was a long, level pull thru, with all utilities in excellent working order. The staff was welcoming and helpful. There is a pool and small playground. We did not use the showers, so can't comment on those. laundry open 24 hrs. The wifi was free and we had a good signal. Good Verizon, clear sky for roof sat dish. There are several campgrounds in the area, we were very satisfied with our choice.

This is a difficult park to review, the pros and cons are many. Pros: great location to access downtown Sioux Falls, bike path. We had a large, level, shaded back in site with good utilities. Each site had a picnic table, but no fire ring. The owners are friendly, and working hard to enlarge and improve the campground. The cons: noise, noise, and more noise. I guess the heat was a blessing, as we ran our A/C with windows closed and blocked out some of the trains, planes, and automobile racket. The Wi-Fi is virtually worthless, so if Internet is important to you, bring your own access. Our weekly rate with tax was $160, very reasonable. We will use this campground again when we need to do our Sioux Falls business.

We used this park for an overnight stop. Friendly, helpful staff - easy check in and escort to site. Site was a pull through, long enough to keep car hooked up. Level gravel sites, but staff asked us to use jack pads as there had been heavy rains the day before our arrival, making the ground soft. The showers were clean, adequate, but nothing special. We asked about where to eat - walking distance - and directed to a local restaurant and enjoyed a good chicken dinner. We would use this campground again whenever passing through.

This park is exactly what we want for an overnight stop. Right off the highway, easy check in, reasonable rate, long, level pull-throughs, good utilities, and basic but clean bath houses. Small playground and a large grassy area for kids to play. We would stop here again.

We are very disappointed with this campground, and our decision to stay there. $52 is outrageous for what is offered. First, the good - the staff was very friendly, long pull-through so we could stay connected, and good Wi-Fi. That is it, and not worth anywhere near what they charge. Our site was long, but very narrow and not level. The shower was disgusting, wads of hair blocking the drain that served both stalls. One stall did not even have a curtain. We are fulltimers, and have stayed in lots of places over the years, ranging from free to lots of money; we don't mind paying if you get good amenities, not the case here. We will not come back.

We used this campground as our base while visiting the area. The sites are adequate, hookups in good working order, picnic table and fire ring at site. It is off the beaten path a bit, but location is good for sightseeing in the area and it is quiet at night. Verizon signal was strong, roof satellite dish had clear view, and the campground free Wi-Fi was very good. The shower and bathrooms were clean, the laundry consisted of one washer, one dryer. A good, no frills park, if you don't need a lot of extras this park is a good value.

We used this campground for an overnight stop while traveling the PA Turnpike. The signage to the campground is excellent. We took a previous reviewers suggestion, and stopped well before the office so we could make the turn down to the overnight section. Staff was friendly, but we did not get any Wi-Fi info, and nothing listed on the handout. We only hooked up electric, good voltage. We did not use the bath house, but it is a long way from the lower section. We used our own, so not a problem. The exit road needs work, it is gravel with huge potholes, and a terrible angle to see oncoming traffic to enter the roadway. Overall, a good campground. We would use this park again.

We used this campground for an overnight on our way north from Florida. The left turn from the I 95 exit is a challenge, have to get across 4 lanes of busy highway. Our site was long and level, 30 amp (no 50 available). We were able to keep toad connected. We were close enough to the office to get wifi at our site, but we were under a large pine tree so no roof sat for TV. The staff was pleasant, walked us to our site, and pointed out the bath house and laundry. We did not use either, as it poured rain all night, we opted to use our own. The rate was PA $16, cash only for 1 night stay. Basic campground, good for an overnight. We will use again.

Top notch in most aspects, except the WIFI. The WIFI is unreliable, and slow, if you can get on. Terrible, plan to bring your own access if internet is important. Everything else is great, the pool is sparkling clean. Dog owners have only a small area in the front designated as a dog walk - not close at all for most campers and their dogs to get to - and there is no fenced area for the dogs to be off leash. Dogs are welcome, just a small area for relief!

We used Passport America, super site w/50amp,w/s for $25 per night, no limit to # of PA days. The roads to the campground from I-64 are narrow, but manageable. Check in was OK, but we were not given any info about Sat TV or Wi-Fi. The big rig sites are a gravel parking lot, nothing pretty about them other than good utilities. If you have a Sat dish, this area is where you want to park. The campground layout can be confusing, site access is ill defined, some sites are way out of level. Some of the wooded sites are not big rig friendly, but suitable for smaller units. Family friendly.

This is a great campground, and could be a "10" with a couple of tweaks. First, it would be nice to get a welcome packet for campground layout, etc and include local sights/dining, etc. Big rigs can get around OK, but the interior roads are very narrow, no way 2 vehicles can pass each other. We found the owners to be very friendly and helpful. They take great pride in their campground, the grounds and landscaping are very well maintained. Each site has a picnic table and fire ring. Some sites are sat friendly, so if that is important, tell them when you make your reservation. The book exchange is one of the most organized I have ever seen, excellent selections. The signage to the campground is excellent. Overall, a great camping experience.

This is our second stay here, we used PA 2 nights and regular rate for 2 nights. Cash for PA nights, CC accepted for regular rates. We asked at check in which sites have the strongest Wi-Fi signal, we were told it is good everywhere. Not so, the site we selected had a very poor signal, wish we had better info from the staff before we selected our spot. Verizon cell signal is extended network, so we could not use that connection. Now, for the good stuff, hookups are laid out logically and are in excellent working order. The pull through sites are long and level. The owners are hard working, friendly folks. Easy access from I-77 and I-74. We would return.

We needed a minor repair on our slide out, and decided to extend our stay to sight see the area. The sites are spacious, and some back up to a creek. Level concrete pads and paved roads make easy site setup. Hookup location is good and work as expected. This CG is not a 10 because; no picnic table at site, no Wi-Fi at site, and the only bath house is a long way from most sites.

Our rate is based on the weekly plus PA (3 nights). The park is right off I-40, easy access. There is some road noise, not from I-40, but from the road in front of the CG, logging trucks entering a lumber facility across the street. You can hear the mill, but both trucks and mill are daytime only. Check in is friendly and efficient, and since most sites are back ins, if you are a MH towing, unhook at check in. The back in sites are 90 degree from a narrow road, but the CG staff is very good at guiding you in. The site size is good, not overly spacious, but more than adequate. Creek side sites are more costly, they are beautiful. If you don't want to pay extra, you can access the creek area via a footbridge. The staff and guests are very friendly. There is entertainment (about once a week), Saturday breakfast, and bingo/cards. There is no pool or playground so the crowd is on the older side, but we did see some kids. The cable and Wi-Fi worked perfectly. The owners/staff keep the CG well manicured. We will definitely return, the location is great and the CG is lovely.

This is an Escapee park that is open to any camper. It is an easy on/off I-75. I would rate a park like this - basic, clean, full hookups - a "7", bumped it up to an "8" because of price ($15) and friendly staff/guests. The rate is based on weekly Escapee member, 50 amp w/cable, and tax. That is a real bargain these days. Site was long and level, but some are not as level. Hookups worked, but awkward positioning. The cable had lots of channels and was very clear. There is a $ Wi-Fi, we did not use that, our Verizon signal was good so we connected with that. They do not take reservations, just show up and stay as long as you want, very relaxed atmosphere. We will return when in the area.

Like previous posters, this is a great little campground. At check in, the owner offered us some free tomatoes from their garden. We were escorted to our site and guided into our back in. All hookups are in good working order. The free Wi-Fi is excellent and cable TV is clear with a wide selection of channels. Our Verizon had a good signal and our satellite dish had a clear sky. We would definitely return.

This campground served as our base to visit Chattanooga area. We had a pull through site. Glad we disconnected at check in, as our site was not long enough for RV plus toad. We had all the campground electrical boxes in our "front yard." We could not even extend our awning, other sites were much better. The hookups are located near the back of the site. Water/electric/sewer all good however, our cable TV did not work. The staff called the cable company, by that afternoon we had cable. The Wi-Fi was terrible, useless. GPS tip: it will bring you to a mobile park, keep going. The campground is a bit further down the road. There is good signage. We would return.

Rate is Passport America, $20 plus a daily $5 activity charge, for a total of $25 per night. We did not use any of the recreation, but still a good price. But, we have a mixed review of this campground. We had a reservation, arrived at the security gate, checked our reservation and gave us our activity passes. That was it, no campground map or any other information. We should have been told to unhook the toad by the boat launch, but not knowing, we didn't. You are not assigned a site, just drive around and find one. This campground is not big rig friendly, it is doable, but we were out of our comfort zone trying to maneuver around the campground, unhook the toad and pick a site. All sites are back-ins, the roads are narrow and hilly, and lots of trees. It is a challenge to get into a site. If you don't have a golf cart, you need to drive to the recreation - pools, boats, clubhouse, etc. Now for the positives; the staff and guests were very friendly and helpful. The utilities were in good working order, good cable TV(too many trees for sat dish). Our verizon cell had a strong signal. There is no Wi-Fi at your site, I think there might be a hotspot, but with little campground information, I don't know where. The location is great for touring the northern GA mountains. I don't think we would return, simply because it was too tight for us.

We used Passport America for 1 night of our 3 night stay. Check in was good, but the staff told us we had a back in, it was a pull in - caused some confusion as we got to our site. The site was level, utilities in good working order. There were 2 dead trees, one of each side of our site, that were marked with a big red X. I imagine they will be cut down at some point, they need to come down now. There was a tent area near the big rig sites, but no path for the tent people to access the bath house, so they cut through the RV sites - occupied or not. I don't blame the tent people, the campground needs to provide a path. The free Wi-Fi was very weak and slow at our site, even just checking email was a test of patience. Oddly, our Verizon signal was also erratic and weak, could make calls but several were dropped. We enjoyed our stay, we used the free shuttle, it was right on schedule every time. If you are a big rig, don't follow your GPS, use the directions from their web site. We would return.

This is a basic campground, not fancy, but it is well maintained and all utilities are in good working order. There is Wi-Fi, a bit weak but OK, and no cable. There is plenty of open sky for sat dish. We paid the Passport America rate, making this a good deal. Our site was long and level, park on gravel with neatly mowed grass between sites. The staff is very friendly and helpful. We did not play golf, the gnats were so bad. The gnats are everywhere, it is NOT a campground issue, it is just the season and the location. Deep Woods made being outdoors bearable. The park is pretty far off I 75, but Rt 280 is a good road leading to the park. We would not use this campground for an overnight, but it served as a great home base to visit the sites in the area. We would return.

We used this campground for an overnight stop, and think we caught them on an "off" night. At check in, the staff was very nice, we were told they were upgrading the electric in 1 section. Evidently other sections were also affected. We were directed to a premium site, and power was good. The office staff took our cell number, knowing we were going out to dinner and we have a pet that would be left in the RV. They would call if there were any more power problems. Very thoughtful. We did get notice that the following morning power in some sections and the water at all sites would be off. We left a bit earlier in the morning to miss all of that. The cable TV was clear. When we got back from dinner, it was very fuzzy: most channels were unwatchable. Maybe part of the electric problem? Our site was a concrete driveway, plenty long, and level. Upgrades are a good thing, and giving them the benefit of the doubt, we would return.

I have reviewed this park before, and I want to add a few more details. First, the summer rate is a great deal, $120 for the week. The staff is friendly and helpful. Our site was a level pull through, utilities positioned a bit awkward (but not so on the back ins), all in good working order. Cable TV and Wi-Fi are excellent. A couple of things keep me from giving this park a 10. 1. There are no picnic table at the sites. 2. There are very few (6) lounge chairs around the lovely, clean pool. 3. And last, there is a lack of attention to the grounds around the sites. (The common areas had nice landscaping.) The grass is clumpy crabgrass. They do mow, but do not "edge." I know this is an ownership park, and it does appear that the lots individually owned, are landscaped by the owners. The "transient" spaces need a bit more attention. The location is good for Disney. We would definitely return the next time we are in the area.

The rate is based on a 1 week stay, including taxes. The check in area was small, but the staff is good: quick check in. We had a pull through site, very long, but narrow. We could not extend our main awning, that was disappointing. An option would have been to reposition the motorhome: but then we would not have been near the hookups. Other sites had more side to side room. All hookups were in excellent working order, a very strong and fast Wi-Fi signal, lots of clear cable TV channels. There was a ban on campfires. We enjoyed our stay, visiting the sights in the area. We would return if in the area again.

We used this PA campground as our home base to tour Charleston and the surrounding area. The price reflects PA rate + 50amp + taxes, very reasonable. Check in was efficient, staff friendly. The interior roads are a bit rough and narrow: but ok. We had a pull through site, that could be described as lumpy. We had to jockey up/back to try to find the most level area. Glad we had disconnected the toad at check in. Our EMS shut down power 2 times during our stay. Storms were in the area, otherwise had good power. The water does smell. No cable TV, the Wi-Fi was ok for email and light surfing, but slow. Our Verizon signal was spotty at best: dead zone, with an occasional signal. We did not use any campground facilities, as we were out sightseeing every day. We would return.

We used Passport America for our 3 night stay at this park. We paid a $2 surcharge for 50 amp. All hookups were in good working order, but we did not connect to their cable so can't comment on that. We also did not use their bath house. This is not a fancy resort, but for basic needs, it worked for us. We appreciated the free shuttle service offered by the trolley tour. They pickup and drop off at the campground. The trolley tour is good for 3 days, pretty good deal. We would return.

We were here in the off-season, lots of open campsites. We have a big rig so we opted for the full hookups sites near Rt 1. The road noise did not bother us. Our site was so large, that upon departure, we were able to position the motorhome up in the site and drive the tow car and hookup all in our spot. It was that deep and that wide. All hookups were in good working order, but our sewer connection was raised, making it more of a challenge to dump (uphill). The rangers and staff were very friendly and helpful. There is a lot to do in the park; hike, bike, canoe/kayak, and boat tour. We would return.

We needed a campground close to the RV service center: Stage Stop is just 2 miles down the road. The location was perfect. The campground itself is average, nothing special. The staff is pleasant. Our site was a pull through in the midst of park models, and not very level. The hookups were in good working order. There is no cable TV or WiFi (at your site), so the $32 per night seems a bit high. The pool is right by the road, not very inviting. There is a lot of road construction in the area, including right in front of the cg, but you can get in and out ok. I think we look for another campground the next time we are in the area for service.

There are several campground choices, we chose Golden Isles based on the PA rate for our overnight stay. We requested a pull through site: it was long enough to keep the toad attached, but it was not level. Since we were only over nighting, we got as close to level as we could w/out using boards. We did not use the bath house, so can't comment. Check in was pleasant and quick, nice office worker. 50 amp power was good, excellent cable TV, and strong Verizon signal. Nothing special about the campground other than it met our needs and the price was right. There is a Flying J at the exit. We would return when needing an overnight stop.

Used this campground for an overnight stop again this year. PA rate, pull thrus, and easy I-95 off/on will bring us back. The downside? Some sites are paved, others are gravel - all are level, we were on a gravel site. Mother Nature made that a mess; snow, ice, and mud. The owner escorted us to our site and dug out the sewer connection, but a paved site would have been nice this stay. Owner is friendly and helpful.

I have reviewed this park before, just some updates. We had a pull thru site in the back, plenty long enough for a big rig. The site was level, w/concrete patio. The campground has added free Wi-Fi throughout the park, the signal was excellent. A Nor'ester dumped over a foot of snow, the staff were out plowing and clearing sites and paths right away - thank you Timberlane staff.

We needed to overnight, this campground is easy on/off I-95. Check in was a nightmare, the clerk couldn't input info into computer, so he had to ask us the same questions several times. What should have been 5 minutes, tops, took over 15- not what you want after a long day on the road. We were escorted to our site, long and level. The traffic on I-95 is noticeable, but it did not keep us awake. Even though the location is great for an overnight, we will not return. $46 a night, that is with discount, is way too much for a place to sleep for a few hours.

This park is basic, but very serviceable. We were visiting friends in the area, and also took in many of the area sights. The campground's web page has the correct and very good directions to the park. Alt 170 was recently renumbered to 315 - confusing the GPS. Check in was pretty simple, appreciate the PA rate. The owner asked about sat dish, yes, a roof mount. He directed us to a clear sight site, but, unfortunately it was right next to the busy road. There is traffic noise, but it did not keep us awake. The hookups worked perfectly, cable very clear, Wi-Fi - fair but OK. We had a very weak Verizon signal. We will use this park again.

This park was in a perfect location for our needs. The rate was reasonable for the area, and the park is very nice. But a few minor concerns; we don't like the Elite policy of full payment at the time of reservation, since it is the off season, we just showed up and there were plenty of available sites. Next, our site was not level, but most others did look level. Our sewer connection was placed on an elevated mound, so our waste had to go uphill(not good). The grassy areas between sites is mowed and trimmed, but not in good shape- lots of weeds, dead grass, and bare spots. Now for the good stuff, sites are a good size, cable and Wi-Fi were excellent, pool is top notch, and the staff was very friendly. Overall, a very nice campground, and we would return.

We used this campground for an overnight, serviceable, barely. Pros; easy on/off from I-75, escort to level site, we could keep tow car hooked, and excellent Wi-Fi. Cons; clean, but COLD shower, cable too fuzzy to watch (but clear sky for sat), EMS tripped 3 times for voltage issues-we were plugged in to 50 amp - there is no breaker at the pedestal.

This was our second stay here, the nightly rate is based on a month rate. The staff is wonderful, very responsive to campers needs. Everything is in excellent working order and very clean. The location is convenient to tourist attractions. The only thing keeping this from a 10 is the pool. It is clean, has lots of lounge chairs, but it is COLD!!! Too cold, the only people we ever saw in the pool were kids, no adults. There is a hot tub, we used that, but on a hot day, we would prefer using the pool. Great campground and staff.

The price is the daily rate, not including electric, at this Escapee park. The sites are all back-ins, but very accessible for all size rigs. We had 50 amp full hook-ups, all in good working order. The sewer was positioned pretty far back: we needed the entire length of hose to reach it. Our site was satellite friendly, although not all were. The campground could use some better (bigger) signage at the entrance and maybe a sign on US 59 at the turn onto CR 28. We would return if in the area again.

I was ready to give a "7", but the campground is over run with ants. The ants crawled up the power cord (only connection we made for overnight stop.) We woke in the morning to find our RV had thousands of tiny ants inside. AWFUL. The site, minus the ants, was good; long level pull through, with 50 amps power. Cable TV selection was excellent. We will not return.

We arrived without a reservation, but they had plenty of sites (mid-week). The owner, working the desk, asked right away if we had a satellite dish. Yes, we do, a roof mount, so she switched our site to give us a clear south sky view. Our site was a 50amp back in, but unlike some others, we did not sit back to back with another rv. It was very hot during our stay, but the electric power was strong and steady. The water pressure was only fair. WiFi was free and worked ok, not the fastest, but good for email, etc. We took advantage of arranging a Nashville tour through the cg office. We enjoyed our stay.

If you don't need a bunch of stuff for kids (pool, planned activities), this is the place to stay. Basic, no frills, but very serviceable campground. Rate is Passport America. The owners are SUPER. We are fulltimers, and have never come across owners that are more friendly and helpful than these folks. These are the kind of people that should own a campground, so let's keep them in business. Our site was a pull through, 50amp, full hook ups. Water pressure was only fair, power was good. WiFi was free and we had a good signal. There is a pond for fishing, but the ducks are afraid of the water (bass keep nipping at their feet) We will stay here again whenever in the area.

The location is great for touring the area, and it is nice to watch the river traffic while relaxing at the campground. The rate is reasonable. There were some issues though. First, the road leading to the campground is closed due to construction. We called the day before our arrival, to confirm directions, staff did not mention the construction. Our site was not level front to back, so much so, that we never got perfectly level. We were in the front, grassy area. Our 30 amp power was consistently good. The WiFi signal was strong, but connection was very slow, so slow, we used our Verizon aircard. Overall, a decent campground in a good spot to tour the area.

The campground staff are excellent; friendly and helpful. We were escorted to our site, good thing, the layout-hookups are oddly placed. Our site was a large pull thru, our hookups were easily reached, but I noticed some sites required very long hoses to connect. We did not use any of the facilities, but did notice the pool was clean and being enjoyed by others. We did have a Verizon signal, but no TV- either w/sat dish or bat wing. Overall, a nice campground if you are in the area, but I would not go out of my way to stay here.

The owners are wonderful, the campground was functional. We were visiting friends in the area, and this campground served as our home base. Our site was a long and level pull through. We had to pay extra for using AC, then it cooled off, and even though we paid for it, didn't use it. We did not ask for that fee to be refunded. The electric power tripped off the only time we did use the AC, so we were hesitant to run them anyway. The power was good other than the first day using AC. We did have good satellite signal, no Verizon signal, and the cg WiFi was extremely weak at our site, but we could at least check emails. We did not use any of the amenities, showers, or laundry.

We left Rafter J with mixed feelings about the campground. Pros: nice spacing between sites, location, amenities. Cons: site was VERY unlevel, some were escorted to site, we were not, had to ask for a GS discount. We will go elsewhere our next visit to the Black Hills.

We used this campground for a quick overnight stop. Staff was wonderful, quick check in and an escort to our pull thru site. The cg layout is a bit quirky, thankful for the escort. Full hookups in good working order, cable and Wi-Fi excellent signals. Verizon signal strong. We didn't use the bath house, so can't comment on them. Deer and turkey wandered throughout the campground. There is some road construction on the road getting to the campground from I-90 - We would return.

Very basic, good for an overnight, especially w/Passport America. Owners are nice and very helpful. The restrooms require a key, they are clean, but only have a curtain for privacy. Good satellite dish reception, Verizon signal was weak but usable, we did not try the CG WiFi. If you are traveling I-90 and need a spot to overnight, this campground will do. Our site was a pull through, long enough to stay connected (toad) and very level.

We enjoyed our stay here, our site was level asphalt, with full hookups, all in good working order. Staff was helpful in a laid-back kind of way, not the fastest, but friendly and knowledgeable. It is a great base camp to visit Glacier NP, only 3 miles to the park gate. Our site was near the road, there was noticeable road noise, but we were out all day and the traffic wasn't a nighttime factor. Our site was wooded, but easy access with large motorhome. No sat TV, a few over the air channels. We did not pay for Wi-Fi, our Verizon air card had an excellent signal. We don't bake often in the RV, so the fresh baked goods were a real treat.

A great park in a perfect spot to visit Yellowstone. A couple of quick tips for you. First, if you plan to arrive during the busy summer season, have reservations. Whenever we were in the office, we could hear staff tell callers they had no sites available. Next, if you are a mh towing, disconnect at the office, even if you have a pull through site. The sites are plenty long, but the connections are near the back, w/toad still hooked on, makes it difficult to position mh. I watched a guy back up with toad, pretty ugly. We had to leave a day early, and we were refunded the full amount, that was a pleasant surprise. The bath houses were clean, but they do clean them during the normal heavy usage times. A pool and hot tub would put this place over the top. We will gladly return the next time we visit Yellowstone.

Used this campground as an overnight on our way to Yellowstone. Excellent facility, and very nice office staff. We had a long pull through that did not require us to unhook the toad, site was level. The surrounding area is very scenic, and wished we had more time to explore. A swimming pool would give this campground a 10 rating from me. We would definitely use this campground again.

Very nice campground, it's not big, but what is there is excellent. Sites are adequate in size, nice grassy areas between sites. Hookups are easy to access and worked perfectly. Good cable TV lineup, but no WiFi. They do have DSL, you need a $20 deposit to get a cable from the office, we did not, just used our Verizon aircard. The restrooms and showers were spotless. The grounds are beautifully landscaped. We would return.

There are no showers available. There are restrooms and a laundry. We would return to this campground.

A great campground, we had site # 45, an easy back-in, with full hookups. We had an opening for satellite TV signal, but no Verizon cell/internet at all. It is a long way from the check in area to the full hookup loop. The beach access is an easy walk, and both lighthouses are just a short hike from their respective parking lots. The restrooms were clean, showers require $.50 for 3 minutes, so remember your quarters.

We had a tight to get into, back-in spot in the O loop, but with neighbors moving their tow vehicles, we got in. Our site was a 90 degree entry, where the other side of the road were angled for a much easier back-in. We had a w/e site, no sky for satellite TV. It was the July 4th holiday weekend, so the campground was FULL!!! Most sites had at least 4 tents. Kids, bikes, people everywhere; but a great campground. The showers were dirty, nasty human waste, but the staff did a good job trying to keep up with cleaning up. I felt sorry for them. The location was wonderful to tour Astoria and all the historical sites in the area. We enjoyed riding our bikes, of course, you really need to ride to get around, the park is huge.

Our site was just OK, the hookups were near the front, and our connections are near the back/middle of the coach. We needed extra hoses for the water.

We enjoyed our 2 night stay, the reservation system is great, check in is quick. Our site had the remnants of the previous campers' dog. We didn't enjoy picking up that!! There is a "no smoking" rule for all buildings, but someone was constantly smoking in the ladies lav. These are just small complaints, our overall experience was very good. We enjoyed the evening concert performed by a local bluegrass band at the amphitheater.

There is a new entrance that does not require you to travel over that narrow bridge: good move. Our check in was ok, clerk was a bit disorganized, but polite. When we asked him about local sights, he told us to "google." Not very helpful. Our site was a pull through, the hookups worked fine. The cable TV was pretty clear but limited channels, and WiFi was spotty. The restrooms/showers were clean, the laundry required tokens purchased at the office. There was an ugly incident while we were here: a resident severed 30/50 amp power cords, cable/phone lines of about 20 guests. The police took the camper to jail, but in the meantime folks were scrambling to replace the ruined cords/cables. The cg staff responded quickly, but it was not a good situation. We were not vandalized even though we were parked just a couple of spaces away from the culprit. The location of the park is great to see the sights of the river gorge and Portland. Our Verizon cell service was strong, site was satillite dish friendly.

Our back-in site was huge, level, and nicely landscaped. All the hookups were in excellent working order, including the extensive cable lineup and strong free wifi. Your RV is on pavers, while you have to park your toad on an asphalt pad located at the front of your site. Check in was just OK; the staff forgot to give me our receipt; I had to go back and get it, and they were not helpful in providing any local info. The office did have plenty of booklets and brochures that filled the void. There is construction in the area, making it noisy and dusty - certainly not the fault of the campground, but the noise and dirt took away from our experience. Make sure you follow the directions on their web site, and not your gps. A special kudos here; the office called 1 day prior to our arrival, to confirm we had the correct driving directions - super!!

At check in, our staff escort noticed we have a roof sat dish, and he made sure we had a site that would get us a signal, all without us having to ask. We used the campground to tour Crater Lake and the surrounding area. The WiFi is free, but make sure you get a coupon while in the office. We had a Verizon signal, not strong, but ok. A great campground in a natural setting with big rig friendly sites. We camped here 3 nights.

PA rate. The park was easy on/off I-5 for an overnight stay. We requested a pull through, but were glad we disconnected at the check in area. Our site (#102) was extremely narrow, with electric pedestal on the left and a large tree (with low hanging branches)on the right. Way too tight, but we got in and settled. Site was level, we only hooked up electric and cable (worked fine). The 5th wheel next to us, took out the campground sprinkler head trying to squeeze into their site. What a watery mess. The bathrooms/showers were clean. The wi-fi signal was weak; we had to go to the office to get a signal. We would overnight here again, but would request a site without a tree!!!!

There is a lot to like about this park. The layout is big rig friendly, and the owners are a delight. The hookups are in excellent working order, and sensibly arranged. The bathroom/shower is private, and very clean. There is a slot to pay for showers, but they are free, save your quarters. There is no laundry. Now for the downsides: the wind makes sitting outside to eat impossible, and don't even think about opening your awning. They changed internet provider during our stay, it is now $3 a day. Too pricey for an erratic signal. We had a decent Verizon signal for cell and aircard. The road to the park is not good, narrow and rough, just go slow. The location for visiting family nearby was perfect, and we took the BART into San Francisco. The rate is based on a weekly stay.

If you are an Escapee, this is the park for you!! It is beautiful, some sites have lovely views. The entire park is well maintained, the interior roads are paved, the sites are generally gravel with a concrete patio pad. We really appreciated the staff member that escorted and assisted us, the road was a challenge: steep and curvy, but we made it. The site was spacious and level. My only slight negative, they do not allow you to use your onboard washer/dryer: due to the septic system. They do offer a good laundry facility, reasonably priced. We used this cg as a base to tour Yosemite. The best deal anywhere. Our daily rate is based on the monthly rate. We will return, great park.

The staff is excellent, friendly and helpful. Do not believe your GPS, the campground entrance is 2.3 miles, NOT 2.5 - don't miss it. I suggest Class A's to disconnect at the office, even if you have a pull through. There are some negatives: the advertised WiFi and cable TV are useless!! Very disappointing. We had NO Verizon signal. We did not sit outside much, the flies were awful. It's a good campground, and we enjoyed it.

We used Passport America, plan to pay in cash, but you are told that upfront when making the reservation. Our site was long and level, with good location of hookups. Our cable TV connection was useless, but plenty of open sky so our sat dish worked perfectly. We did not use the showers/bath, so can't comment on them. We also did not use the Wi-Fi, our Verizon air card had a strong signal. We did use the fuel discount coupon for the station at the campground entrance.

Excellent park, easy on/off from I-40. The rate reflects Passport America. 'Pay for 2 nights, the third night is free' would bring down the rate even more. There had been heavy rains in the area prior to our arrival, so we really appreciated the paved roads and level concrete sites. The site was a long pull through with plenty of room for the RV and car, with more than adequate space between sites. (RV/car washing is permitted.)

Nice park: we had a 2 night stay. The staff was courteous and helpful. We had a pull through site with a concrete pad. We disconnected the toad by the office, and were glad we did!! Although our site for the RV was level, the toad area was VERY sloped, we would not have been able to easily disconnect at our site. The park is fairly new, so you would think that the hookups would be logical: no. You will need to position the RV, depending on the length of e/w/s cords and hoses. Poor planning, but the hookups are in good working order. The cable TV was very clear, but there was not a large selection of channels. WiFi is still being "worked on", but we had a good Verizon signal and used our aircard. The cg offers free shuttle rides to the cowboy museum (great - plus excellent lunch buffet), a very nice touch.

The bath house was adequate: cinder block walls and concrete floors, old but clean. The electric and cable TV were excellent, Wi-Fi was ok.

Garmin GPS did not recognize the address, but it had a KOA in Poi: bingo. Easy access to I-65, we just needed to overnight. Was an easy check in, has a great camp store: it's like a mini CW!! There were several negatives. The price is too high (although if we were using pool etc., it would be ok). They charge $5 for 50 amp, and the site was not level!

Make sure you run the water first: it was back/green before running clear. The sewer was located forward, and it did not have a cap.

We used Passport America; no restrictions of use for our 2 week stay - excellent. Stayed in the "red" section for satellite access. Site was level, gravel/stone, pull through, with no trees. There is red clay dirt below the gravel, be sure to wipe your feet - you don't want that in the RV. Staff was friendly, laid back since it was the off season and the campground wasn't very crowded. I can see where this would be a family favorite- pool, lake, small playground. Most sites are in a more natural setting; there are sites suitable for everything from tents to big rigs. There is no cable or wi-fi (that I'm aware of). We had a strong Verizon signal. Hookups were in good working order, the laundry was a bit pricey, $1.75. The roads in are narrow and lots of curves, but OK even for big rigs. The signs to the campground are plentiful and very helpful. We would return when back in the area.

Awesome park with great amenities and friendly staff. We selected a site in the "forest" section, with a creek running behind the site - lovely. Sat TV was not possible, but their cable lineup was extensive. The staff member that assisted us, was excellent--guided us right in to our site and pointed out the location of all hookups. The resort is located near the paved bike paths, making access to riding very easy. It was a little cool for the pool, but did soak in the jacuzzi- it felt great. Do not follow GPS directions that will take you "left" onto Arrow Rd. from Target Rd., go right. The directions on the resort web site are perfect. We had a wonderful time, and will return.

Rate is Passport America for a pull through, in this motel/mobile home/campground. On the positive side; owners were friendly and helpful, site long enough to keep toad connected, that's about it. Our site sloped down, could not get level even with use of blocks, and our water connection was on the wrong side (shared-side by side). We got as close to level as we could, and didn't need w/s as we were only overnighting. Free Wi-Fi was offered, but we had a good Verizon signal and used our air card. Cable is extra. I did not see any bathhouses, not sure there are any. I didn't see rr tracks, but they must be nearby as we heard several freight trains throughout the night. We probably will look for another spot to overnight the next time.

Great little campground, rate reflects the average of Passport America + 1 night regular rate. Owners are hard working and will do anything to help you. Sites are on levels, my site was long (pull thru) and level. Easy hookups, well placed, and in good working order. The Wi-Fi was down, the server CO was called right away and had it back up very quickly. We did not use the campground showers. Do not rely on your GPS to locate this campground, use their directions. I'm looking forward to a return visit.

Wonderful campground, beautiful setting with mountain vistas in every direction. The sites are gravel with grass between sites, pretty level, and hookups in good working order. There are sites for big rigs and tents, and everything in between. The campground roads are gravel, in good shape, but narrow. Big rigs are fine, but 2 vehicles cannot pass by each other. We did not use the showers or laundry, but they appeared clean. We also did not use the Wi-Fi, good Verizon signal so we used our air card. There is no cable, but there are sites that have a clear view of the sky, just not ours!! The owners and workampers are friendly and helpful. We would camp here again when in the area.

We spent 2 nights here, while visiting family in the area. We were assigned a pull through on the upper level. The site was large and fairly level. 30 amp power, but strong, water, and sewer hookups in good working order. I was able to get a sat signal for TV, also had good Verizon signal. The approach roads to the campground are a bit narrow, posted 20-30mph curves, but even a big rig can manage. The roads in the campground are gravel and narrow, but OK. It was the off-season when we were there, but it appears that this is a family oriented campground; lots of playgrounds, 2 pools, basketball, volleyball, lake--lots to keep everyone busy. There are many seasonal sites, some a bit ragged, but the campground grounds are very well maintained. There are not many "big rig" sites, but lots of sites for smaller units, pups, and tents. The shower was large, pretty clean, but old. Could use some updating, and a bench/chair would be nice, just 2 small hooks for towels/clothing. There are several bathhouses around the campground, just used one, so can't speak about the others. The new owners are very friendly and helpful. We would return.

We stayed in the adult section, The Bluffs. It is a great setting, excellent facilities, and all the hookups were in perfect working order. Most of the sites are seasonal, with a few "transient" sites available. Sites are a good size, some wooded, and a few open sites. The seasonals and park management are the friendliest, most helpful people we have encountered!!! The only complaints; Don't follow the check-in signs if you are going to The Bluffs - signs are for Danforth Bay, and the long entrance road to The Bluffs is rough in spots - washboard, ruts, and potholes- otherwise, this park rates a 10.

Lots to like at Wild Duck, especially if you are looking for peace and quiet in a natural setting. I had a pull thru site that was one of the larger ones, lots of space between sites. There are some that are much tighter. There are trash cans placed in several locations, emptied regularly. Showers are clean, but the stalls are pretty small. There is lots to do in the area, or just relax at Wild Duck and listen to the quiet.

I agree with previous reviews. This campground offers something for everyone; shaded woods or large open pull throughs. Some nice touches-each site has a trash can, daily newspaper delivered every morning, and hookups in good working order. The shuttle is $1, sure beats the $15 parking fee in town. Great service for the campers, way to go Shore Hills. To nit-pick a bit, it'll cost you to shower. It seems to me with the rate they charge, a shower should be included. There is no pool, but there is beach access-watch the tides. There is a playground for the kids, and a dog play area. Not sure about wi-fi (don't think it was offered)-we used our Verizon aircard, good signal. We stayed one week, GS discount. We would come back again.

What a view!!! We were in site #31-pull in overlooking the water. We spent the week watching sailboats, lobsterman, and admiring the full moon over the bay. This is a small, well run campground. The sites are not uniform in size, a bit of an odd layout, but each site has a water view. 30 amp and water only, no sewer. (Not sure if 50 amp is available at other sites.) Weekly customers get free pump outs on Mon/Th, daily guests can use the dump or pay for honey wagon service. The bath house is clean, but only 1 shower, but no charge. Laundry was small, 2 machines, but OK. Remember, it's a small cg-45 sites. There is a playground for the kids, and beach access, but no pool. Free WiFi, but we used our Verizon air card, we had good cell/Internet service. Cable selection was good. The owners and work campers make every effort to keep the grounds manicured (lots of rain this season). They are real nice folks, making our stay memorable. We would return.

This is a gem of a campground, very well maintained and super friendly/helpful staff. The roads are easily navigated, our site was a pull thru. There are some back ins, and some are shaded, ours was more open, excellent for satellite reception. There were plenty of space between sites, didn't feel all closed in by neighbors. They have a large dog walk area. They do have free cable with a large selection of channels. There is nothing for kids, no playground or pool. I did see some youngsters riding bikes, so I don't think the campground is age restricted. If you are going to be in the Bangor area, this is the best campground option, it's great. We camped here in a motor home, and the rate is based on Passport America.

Lots to like about this campground: reasonable rates, large sites, and location. Cash only, stay 6 nights get 7th free! Sites are large, but not a lot of fhups to pick from, but we found a nice site in the C loop. If you are a tenter- this is the campground for you, lots of nice spots to pick from. As far as location, some sites with water views (not many), but the big plus is the campground is on the shuttle bus route. A MUST way to travel, and it is free. Now, the what not to like: many sites are not level, free wifi is a joke-the only way I actually got online was at 5AM, never during the day or evening. The showers were $.25 for 5 minutes (not bad, but remember your quarters). I didn't mind their check in, drive around and pick your spot, but they don't want you to unhook near the office. We have a large motorhome w/tow, we prefer to unhook before we enter an unfamiliar campground-you never know, so we unhooked anyway. Just got a "glare" from the staff, oh well. Overall, a very good location to visit Acadia and Bar Harbor.

We enjoyed our 1 week stay here. The owners are wonderful, they are friendly and have lots of local knowledge. We had a pull thru site, lots of room, parked on dirt/gravel with grass between sites. Some sites have a slight back to front slope, nothing leveling jacks can't fix, though. Cable TV has lots of channels, free (2 hrs per day)wifi. We had a strong verizon signal. CG location is great for visiting the sights of New Hampshire.

We enjoyed our 3 night stay, wished it could have been longer so we could enjoy the pool and golf. Check in was quick, PA rate reflected in our nightly. A couple of minor complaints; the site # post is facing the wrong way so you can't see it as you approach. Needed to get out of coach and walk to the post to find our correct site, they need to turn the signs around. The roads are clearly marked, but the sites are not and they are in a random type layout. Confusing. Next complaint is the shower room doors. The showers are private, but the door does not fit properly so that it won't lock. Anyone could walk in, and the shower curtains are clear!!! Bad combo there. Wifi worked just fine, there is no cable, we had a good verizon signal. The grounds are well maintained, overall, a great place to camp.

This is a small "mom and pop" park, great setting with some quirks. The owner takes you to your site in his golf cart so you can see the layout, then you go back to your RV and drive to your site. It would be easier if he just escorted you. They charge extra for 50 amp and cable, and the Wi-Fi did not work at our site. We could not get a Verizon signal in the CG, but while touring in Bennington we had a strong signal. The showers were clean, but the water is on a timer that is located outside your stall. Odd. Overall, the CG is well maintained, pretty little pond, and in a good location to explore southern Vermont. We would stay here again.

We arrived after several days of rain, and the sites were pretty flooded. We were only overnighting, so just hooked up to electric and cable, had to stand in about 6" of water to do so. Site was a good size and pretty level, but there were sections of the interior gravel roads that were very flooded making cg travel difficult. Cable worked fine, but no NBC, odd. We did not have a strong verizon signal, but good enough for aircard and cell. Pricey, but would use again traveling I 95.

The setting and location near I 95 is perfect. Our assigned site was less than perfect, it was a severe downslope. So much so, that we could not get level, even putting blocks under our jacks. Since we were just overnighting, we made do. The campground is well maintained, and the hosts were very friendly and helpful. I did not care for the bath house, gray cement floor and a lack of privacy-shower curtain barely wide enough. The WiFi is free, and we had a strong signal. There is no cable, but a few over air channels. Our Verizon cell had a very poor signal. The pond is very nice, pretty setting. We would return, but next time we will insist on a level site.

We are traveling I 95, overnight stop. We asked for a pull through with a clear sky for sat signal. We were accommodated, good level pull through, connections well placed. CG host escorts to site. There are some seedy looking long term trailers, but for an overnight, it is convenient and reasonably priced. There is free WiFi, no cable. Verizon cell has a strong signal. Did not use the shower/bath area. Our cg cost reflects a GS discount. We would return for an I 95 travel overnight.

We needed to overnight in the area for RV service in the morning. Campground is about a mile from the service center. Our pull-through site is in the front by the road, lots of traffic, but we ran the AC and filtered out most of the noise. The showers were clean, but far from nice. Fixtures are old, flimsy curtains do not provide much privacy. We arrived on a Sunday, the office isn't open on Sundays, seems strange as cg's are a 7 day a week business. The cg host met us, and led us to our site. Overall, I would say it is overpriced and I don't think we would return. Too much money for too little.

Rate estimated from monthly rate, which is all inclusive (including electric). We arrived in the midst of strong storms, the staff processed us quickly, we were escorted and guided into our back in site, all before the storms hit. The campground is easy for big rigs with wide paved roads. There are pull throughs available. Hookups are in a convenient layout. There are lots of cable TV channels, free Wi-Fi, good Verizon signal. The staff is friendly and helpful. Lots to do in the area. Great campground, will definitely return.

I requested a pull thru site- where I could keep the toad connected. What a joke!! The site they assigned me is located right beyond a very sharp curve, and is extremely narrow. I had to disconnect toad, and even with that I could not get in this site w/out hitting either my neighbors slide or the wood support of the electrical pedestal. Being a good neighbor, I took out the wood, lost some paint on the bottom of one of my bays. The worker in the office must have NEVER driven a mh, to think a 40'er would fit. The site is narrow and not level, the cg roads are narrow. Convenient from I 10, but I will never stay here again.

This is our first stay here, and there is a lot to like. The sites are large, lots of shade, nice pool and clubhouse area, and the campground's location. That said, those trees providing shade also make backing in to sites a challenge, and they are messy. The grounds crew does a lot of raking. They spray/fog every other night, but the noseeums are still present and biting. The free secure Wi-Fi is not the fastest, but adequate for email and general surfing. There are several laundry locations, machines in good working order and for $2.25 your laundry is washed and dried. They have a designated pet bedding washer. The staff is friendly and helpful. There are lots of snowbirds here. There are only a few permanent type trailers, and most sites are nicely maintained. We will return next year.

Very convenient to I 95. Good for our overnight stop. Nice setting with lake. We had a pull thru and did not have to disconnect the toad. Sites are dirt/grass, fairly level. Staff was friendly and welcoming, offered local tip to avoid I95 construction backups. Showers/rest rooms are private, accessed with provided security code. Rate reflects SKP discount.

This is one of the few year around campgrounds in the area. We stay here to be near family for the winter holidays, the rate posted is based on the winter monthly rate. The sites are level gravel, some with concrete slab for table/chairs, etc. There are lots of trees, but room for large rigs and slides. The staff is friendly and helpful. There is a small pond for fishing and home to some ducks. Wild turkeys wander through almost every day. Close to I 295, easy on/off.

This is our second stay here, great park. The staff is friendly and helpful, excellent service. The amenities are in good working order and well placed for ease of hooking up. Cable TV w/72 channels, and strong free wi-fi. The concrete pads are level, good space between sites. Convenient location between I95 and the turnpike, but no substantial road noise. There are no park models, no tents, but everything from mh to pop ups are welcome.
