From the Flood-Hope Road it is 2 km paved and another 6 km well maintained gravel road uphill (2-5% grade) to the park. All dry camping sites nestled in the woods. Only one or two hand pumps for water. Some outhouses. Very few shrubs between the trees, so privacy is not as good as normally in BC Provincial Parks. Sites are fairly level and come with a picnic table and a fire pit. Super quiet at night. The lake is just a short walk away. Fishing is allowed, but only catch and release. It's a few kilometers extra, but we will be back.

Free camping right on the Similkameen river! Only 6 spots though. You need to be fully self contained, since there are no hookups, no water spigots, and no outhouses. Nice sites, fairly level, and all but one right on the river bank. If you want to go kayaking or canoeing you can start right off your camping spot. The downer is the Highway just across the river, but traffic mostly dies down at night. To get here, leave Hwy 3 into Princeton, take a right turn onto Old Hedley road and drive about 6 km. The sites will be on your right. We will come back.

This is an update to our last review from August 2013. This time we stayed in the lower loop. This is closer to the road and you can hear it. Most of the traffic dies down at night but we would recommend the upper loop for more quietness. Ohter than that all we have said in the last review is still true. We will be back.

This park is just 3 km north of Campbell River, right off Hwy 3, offering good hiking and fishing opportunities around. The sites are all dry camping. Lots of sites available for larger rigs (we are 51' combined length). Fairly easy to maneuver. Level was OK. Most of the sites, including the ones on the river are reservable. Chances to get a river site without a reservation are slim to none during summer season. Those on the river are reasonably bright, while the others are mostly heavily shaded and pretty dark. Pick a side in the rear end to get away from the road noise (mostly dying down at night anyway). All sites have a picnic table and a fire pit. Well spaced, offering good privacy. A real downer for bigger rigs is the dump station ($5). Very tight to get into without hitting the curb. In fact we were not able to get around it. Overall a nice Provincial Park close to town with lots of larger sites. However, we didn't like the darkness and the dump station, therefore will try a different campground around Campbell River next time.

Just a little update to our previous review. We stayed here again on our way back and now the rate is 22$. Rating is lower because the campground becomes crowded with day users on weekends and cleaning up seems to be nobody's priority. Also we had a peek inside the washrooms and they were really outdated. Not even a curtain for the shower stall. And due to the weekend crowds cleanliness was an issue too. However, it is still a very nice nice play to stay, but during the season we would recommend to avoid the weekends.

A meticulously manicured park! Flower beds and well pruned shrubs everywhere. But it is tight. Don't take your big rig here. We saw 30' trailers squeezed in, but that's about what you can manage. The sites are rather small, mostly shaded by trees, but offer good privacy. Good hookups, sewer in the back of the site. Fairly level, we didn't need any boards. Wifi was ok. But you get thrown out every 30 minutes and have to log back in. Free firewood is included in the rate. But it is very moist, so not much fun to burn it. Best part is the direct access to a romantic cove and the adjacent MacKenzie Beach. Nights were very quiet. Overall I would rate this park a 10 if it was a little cheaper. But because of the 'buts' mentioned above, it is only a 9. We'll be back.

It is all about location. This campground is right on the beach, most of the sites have direct access. The views are just gorgeous. The campground itself is basically a meadow with some hook-up posts, not overly well maintained. But it is very quiet and Shaw Go WiFi works great. There is lots of space to walk the dog or for kids to roam around. So for us it is the perfect location to hang out, watch the eagles (they are nesting in one of trees) and enjoy the scenery.

Now this is not your usual RV park. But by far the cheapest place offering full hookup sites in Orange County. A Christian event center runs this park which is located on their premise quite a bit outside of any town in the area. It is meant for longer stays, but travelers (and you don't need to be a religious person) are welcome. You have to go through the somewhat unusual reservation process though. Online only through their website and at least one week in advance. It took me a couple of follow up calls to confirm our reservation. Driving there you can use your GPS with the adress stated on the website. The last mile to the gate of the event center is a very bumpy country road. We wondered why the six speed bumps on the way were needed. The gate code was provided with the reservation confirmation. Checking in at the office was a bit different then with other parks. Little room to park the rig. Photo ID and insurance papers needed to be shown and photocopied. Once that was set and the credit card slided we could drive the last half mile up to the RV sites. Very bumpy indeed. Mostly gravel, some enormous potholes and a few low branches skirting the roof. You have to drive to the upper level of the park and I would recommend to take the left way when the road forks at the lower level. There are more sites on the lower level but these are not for public use. The sites are all back in and in #35 we had just about enough room to maneuver with our 34' RV (51' combined length). The sites with lower numbers provide more room and longer rigs would not have problems there. The sites are gravel, provide full hookups in OK shape, even cable. We needed no leveling equipment. The WiFi was OK, not the fastest, but good enough for emails and web browsing. Our Verizon worked on the lower level but not up on our site. Very friendly and considerate neighbors. The place is very safe and very quiet, especially at night. Be prepared for some christian events on and around the lower level from Friday night to Sunday afternoon including early morning music and singing, prayers and more music and singing throughout the day. No noise after 10 pm. Overall, this is an off the beaten path option to park your RV. I would not recommend going there if it is for less than at least three days. The reservation and check in hassle along with the long and bumpy drive in and out is not worth it if it is only for a night. We stayed for six nights, enjoying the remoteness, safety and quietness. We also enjoyed the low rate and did not mind the somewhat long drives to the L.A. and Orange County attractions. We will come back.

Rate is for a partial hookup pull thru site after $2 AAA discount. We have stayed here before and will stay again. Nice and quiet park. Very well maintained. However, most sites are only for smaller rigs. I would not rate this park to be big rig friendly, but accessible, yes. Only two sites in the full hookup section are long enough to accommodate our length of 51' combined. Driving and maneuvering was o.k. though. This might be different when the park is full. The pull thru sites in the partial hookup section are 35'. All back ins are about 30' or shorter. Be prepared to park your tow vehicle or toad in the parking lot at the entrance. Staff is very friendly. Sites are fine gravel and most of them require some leveling equipment. Hookups are in good order. Picnic table on site but no fire pit. A few small trees but very little privacy. Dump on the way out. We neither used any facilities nor the WiFi. Verizon was pretty good instead.

This park is a gem. Unfortunately it is almost completely taken by permanent or long term campers. Sites are only available when some of them leave for traveling. The park is right on the lake, at the dead end of a residential street. Everything is manicured and welcoming. Most rigs in the park are newer models or in excellent shape. The sites are generously sized and well level. Good hookups. Verizon works well. Some large trees in the park. We did not use any facilities, thus can't comment. Very friendly and helpful staff. When traveling through the area again we will not hesitate to take the detour to stay here again. But make sure to call in advance for site availability!

Rate is for a pull thru hookup site on the parking lot right on Hwy 12. On the sites beside the casino you are not allowed to pop your slides out, whether you have neighbors or not. So we went to the newly built RV parking at Hwy 12. Concrete pull thru sites, excellent level. After setting up, you need to drive back to the casino to check in and pay. They will not accept payment before choosing a site. No restrooms or showers at the parking lot. Traffic noise mostly dies down at night, but earplugs will still come in handy. Dump is on the way out. Verizon worked well. Overall acceptable for a night but definitely not more. We will try another place when staying in the area the next time.

Rate is after 10% AAA discount for a full hookup pull through site. Site was fine gravel, fairly level and just large enough to hold the 5er and the truck. No privacy between sites. Some trees, however. The location in an industrial area makes for a quiet night. Very close to a grocery store. We did not use washrooms, thus can't comment. Our Verizon MiFi worked well, no idea about the quality of the park's WiFi. Lots of washing machines in the laundry. Friendly staff. Very well maintained park overall. We can recommend this park, but will try the dry camping campground at the lake next time.

Rate is for a dry camp site, paved, back in. Reservation fee comes on top. This campground is pretty busy, compared to others in Death Valley. No privacy or shade. Be aware of sudden windstorms. We experienced one while staying and saw several awnings being ripped off the rig. Best thing about the campground is its central location in Death Valley. Potable water at the washrooms. We saw some people using their phone, but had no reception on our Verizon MiFi. There is pay as you use WiFi at the general store, but we did not try. When coming back to DV we would rather try the dry camp across the street or go to Stovepipe Wells instead.

A large gravel parking lot, that is Stovepipe Wells NPS campground. We liked it here for the very quietness at night and the wonderful views. Also a good place to go on excursions exploring Death Valley. Sites are spacious but offer no shade nor privacy. But since only a few campers were here that was not a problem. The private park with hookups is on the same lot and RVs there were packed like sardines. Fire pits and picnic tables only on the tent sites. Some leveling equipment is needed. Dump is on the way out. Potable water at the washrooms or the dump. Cannot comment on the washrooms, we did not use them. Surprisingly low prices in the store (except for gas) where you can buy some basic groceries. Across the street is a hotel which offers free WiFi. You can sit on the porch. Slow but reliable and good enough for checking emails or browsing a few websites. No Verizon reception here. We also spent a few nights in Furnace Creek, but would choose Stovepipe Wells over FC when we come back. The quietness, some basic free WiFi and a lower price trumps the more central location of FC for us.

What a nice park and what gorgeous views. The only real complaint we have is the road noise from Hwy 395 which runs right along the park. Weekend was OK, but during the week no night sleep without earplugs. The posted rate is after a 10% discount (Good Sam, AAA) for a full hookup pull thru site. We feel the price to be a little steep, but you pay for amenities whether you use them or not. Some trees between the sites which were in full bloom, but provided no privacy. The site is fine gravel and we needed two boards to level. Hookups in excellent order. We did not use the WiFi. Our Verizon Hotspot worked very well instead. We cannot comment on the restrooms or showers but we bet they are in tip top shape as the whole park is. The staff is super friendly and accommodating. We were waiting for a package to arrive via USPS. They picked it up, making an extra drive to the post office just to get our package, and then delivered it to our site. Customer service at its very best. We look forward to staying here again.

A good place for an overnighter on the way through, not more. If you are light sleeper you'll need earplugs. It was not the interstate traffic, which was barely noticeable, but the trains that bothered us. Sites are fine gravel pull thrus and a little leveling is needed. Hookups were OK. The WiFi is not included in the posted rate which includes a 10% AAA discount. We used our Verizon MiFi instead which worked very well. We stayed here before and will come back in the future.

If you are tired of noisy and expensive RV Parks right off the interstate, then take the few extra miles to find quietness and solitude here. It is dry camping, but all sites are paved as are the roads through the park. A picnic table and fire pit on your own backyard comes with each site. Very good privacy since the sites are well spaced. Most sites are shaded by trees. Very nice and relaxing setting. Really quiet at night. A concrete bike path runs from the park easy and flat around the nearby lake and continues all the way down to Bakersfield. Rate is the off season price. I think it's 50% more during the season. We will stay here again for a few nights whenever we come through the area.

Not a destination park, but a cheap place to stay overnight on the way through. It is a place to park and hook up, nothing else. No restrooms or other amenities. Half the sites are dry camping ($15), the other half full hookup back in. The hookups look a little worn, but work well. If the sewer hookup is out of reach, which it was for us, there is a dump station on the way out. Verizon worked excellent here. With the rate comes one free ticket for the adjacent Air Museum, which has a nice selection of military planes from WWII to the end of the 20th century. A little noisy at night, due to the trains honking their horns diligently. To find the place watch for the museum and take the road next to it. Then turn left immediately on Hospital Road. Half a mile down the road on the left you will see a small parking lot which is the RV park. We will come again for overnight stays.

Rate is for a full hookup pull thru site. No discounts. We stayed in the gravel area. Both the paved area and the gravel area offer no privacy at all. But while the paved area is pretty sloped, the gravel area sites are fairly level. Good hookups where you want them. We didn't use any facilities. Our Verizon Mi-Fi worked very well, so we didn't try the offered WiFi. Pretty quiet at night, given the location right in a big city. The adjacent horse race track shuts down around 10 pm. If you like to ride your bicycle, there is the American River Bikeway going along the RV park. Also a great opportunity to take your dog on a longer walk. Paved and mostly flat it is very enjoyable to take a 7 mile ride right into Old Sac. Going the other direction will take you all the way to Lake Folsom, where you can connect to even more bike trails. We will stay at Cal Expo again when coming through the area.

The rate is for a developed site. Maricopa County will increase the rates and fees by about 20% in the near future. And you have to add a $8 reservation fee per reservation. Without a reservation you have to be very lucky to get a site even for only one night. The overflow (dry camping) is not very appealing, rough and tight spaces, almost no views and no privacy at all. The developed sites are fine gravel, well level and provide good hookups. Picnic table, grill and fire pit on site. Good privacy. Verizon MiFi worked very well. The views are just gorgeous. There is some air traffic noise throughout the day, but the nights are super quiet. This is our new favorite park in the area. About 8 miles from the campsites to shopping in Fountain Hills. We will come back for sure and make a reservation for a longer stay.

This was one of our most favorite parks and we have rated it a 9 and a 10 in the last years, but not this time. We dry camped for 17$/night in the overflow area, the rate for a developed site is 25$ and all rates are subject to an increase of about 20% in the near future. Without a long planned reservation (8$ fee) it is almost impossible to get one of the developed sites in the park. However, we were happy to drycamp in the group campsite which is used as an overflow. But they really make you feel uncomfortable there. You can only check in for one night at a time and then report to the office each morning at 10 a.m. We had to move our rig three times within the dry camp area(!) while staying for four nights! After the first night we were threatened with a triple fee, because we occupied too much space. Of course we had asked staff for permission to set up our rig this way before. The kicker was the fourth time we had been asked to move. When we decided to pack it in and were already hitched up as half a dozen of fellow campers were also, it turned out to be a false alarm. Everybody could stay where he was this time. Well the damage was already done. We will not come back to Usery. The park is still nice, but noise from the shooting range and traffic along and in the park has picked up significantly. And being kicked around like this time is an experience we don't need to repeat.

We stayed in one of the partial hookup sites in the Roadrunner Campground. Most of them have a covered picnic table, which makes it tight to back in. However, our site was a pull-through, making in and out very easy. Some leveling equipment was needed. Hookups were fine. Very strong Verizon signal; our MiFi worked excellent. There are several campgrounds within the park and dry camping (10$/night) is allowed in many areas along the shoreline of the lake. However, most of the dry camping spots are better suited for smaller RVs. If your rig is larger, go to the paved boat launch area just half a mile from Roadrunner. Some dry camping is also offered at the north end of the park. You have to check in and pay at the main entrance first, though. Pretty quiet location, just the burros can be heard. Best bet to see some is going to the north entrance in the late afternoon. Maricopa County plans to increase all fees by about 20% within the next months. We would come back anyway, but fetch a dry camp site next time.

The rate is for a primitive site. We love to find places like this a few miles off the interstate. Very quiet at night. No generators allowed, we love that concept. Airplane noise as of 6:30 in the morning. Most dry camping sites are for smaller RVs except for #1 and #10, which are easy to back in to. However, watch out for some bent trees when making your turns inside the park. There was a picnic table, but no fire pit. Site was about level. Our Verizon worked well. Wi-Fi is offered, but we didn't try. We'll bookmark this park for an overnight stay when traveling again in this area.

We stayed in the dry camp area. Site was OK sized with a nice shaded picnic bench, fire pit, and lots of backyard. Good privacy. Best part was the quietness at night. No noise whatsoever. Sites are fine gravel and level. We used our Verizon MiFi, which worked well. However, before paying $25 a night for dry camping, we will try a boondocking site in the area when we come back to Borrego Springs.

The rate is after Good Sam discount. It is hard to find a place like this in an urban area. When we pulled in we felt like having arrived in a garden center. Flower beds all over the place. It's unbelievable. No need to see the Ranunculus Flower Fields in Carlsbad anymore. Adjacent to the RV Park is a trailer park with older models but very well maintained. The park itself looks and feels brand new. Everything is in tip top shape. Most sites are pull thru, all concrete. A little tight, about 10' wide. The only downturn is the slope of all sites. Not a big deal with a towable, but motor homes have to drive up on blocks up to 10" high (provided by the park). Other than that, everything is nice. The hookups are excellent, the laundry is cheap and top of the line. WiFi is strong and fast. Some road noise of course, you are in a city, but not really bothersome. The staff is very friendly and supportive. We would come back in a heartbeat.

Rate is for a full hookup pull through site. The distance to the interstate is about half a mile, so traffic noise is noticeable. However, only three miles from the interstate exit this is so much better than the parks that are literally located on the shoulder of I-5. Excellent hookups, level sites. All sites are paved and provide some space between each other. We didn't use the restrooms, thus can't comment. WiFi worked well but there were a few more campers in the park. We'll come back for an overnight stay when passing through.

The rate is for non Airstream RVers. The very friendly staff prepared us well for our late arrival, including gate code and WiFi password. The park is basically a large parking lot with no greens inside. All sites are compacted gravel, which was surprisingly soft and unlevel. However, backing in was no problem, lots of room to maneuver. Hookups are in the back. WiFi worked well. Pretty quiet during the night but traffic on Steilacoom Road picked up around 6 am. We would come back for an overnight stay when traveling through the area.

Normal rate for a W/E site would be $25, but the annual pass for the National Parks gives you a 50% discount! Sites are paved and level but a little on the small side. Our rig is 51' combined and filled the pull through site completely. Hookups in good shape. Just a few miles from the interstate exit but very quiet at night. Verizon signal was good. Very nice hiking and biking trails right off the campground. Unbeatable value for money deal. We'll be back whenever travelling through the area.

Five miles from the I-5 exit you will find a very quiet place for the night. All sites have a view over the lake. However, the water level is very low. There is a campground halfway in, this RV Park is at the very end of the road. Paved sites, mostly back in. There was only one fellow camper staying, so we could pick a pull through site. All hookups in excellent shape and where you need them. Friendly camphost. We did not use the restrooms. Next time travelling the I-5 we will plan accordingly to make this place a stopover again.

Very quiet bare bones campground nestled in the woods very close to Cowichan River. No hookups, just one or two water hand pumps in the park. No Wi-Fi and poor if any cell phone reception. The sites are level and well spaced, good privacy. A few sites can accomodate larger rigs. We are 51' combined and stayed in site #14. No problems backing in. Site #7 is even better regarding manoeuvrability. Each site has a picnic table and a fire pit. Fire wood is sold for $7 for a well sized bucket. The hiking and cycling trails like the Cowichan River foot path and Trans Canada Trail in the area are not accessible from this campground, you need to drive about 5 km to Skutz Falls (campground there is permanently closed). Cowichan Lake is a 20 minute drive. Overall a very nice place to stay and enjoy some days away from it all. We will be back.

The rate is Passport America for a pull-thru full hookup site including free Wi-Fi and cable. Excellent value for money. However, when this RV park is fully booked in high season this might be a different story. Our site was narrow and barely long enough for our truck and the 5th wheel (51' combined). Had there been a neighbor our slideouts would have almost touched. After some leveling efforts we found the hookups to be in good order and where they should be. Wi-Fi was good and Shaw Go Wi-Fi also very strong. A fair amount of permanents or seasonals in the park. All very well maintained. Very quiet location, only some very distant traffic noise noticeable at night. Friendly and helpful staff. In summer this must be a wonderful place to stay for families. The pond and the water slide is where you will find your kids. If you want a campfire you have to borrow a portable fire pit at the front desk. No idea how many they have. We will come back and stay a few days, but only during shoulder season.

The rate is for a full hookup site including taxes. The sites without hookups would be $35. We stayed for three nights and liked it here. We checked out the other RV Parks in the area and find this place a very good deal. Most of the sites are dry camping in the woods, but there are 6 full hookup sites available behind the office. Sites are level and easy to get in, but not very spacious. You have to back in to the very end to not block your neighbor. Therefore the fire pit ended up under the trailer. Sites are level, hookups where you want them and in good shape. We caught the Wi-Fi from the Golf restaurant but you should not count on that. Cell phone reception worked well. Very quiet at night. During the day some occasional noise from the adjacent airport, just a few flights per day though. The location is great. Just 1.5km to Schooner Cove and 3km to Long Beach (Incinerator Rock). About 14 km to Tofino. Friendly staff. The cancellation policy is ridiculous, no refunds whatsoever! This only works because it's Tofino. We will come back and then stay in the dry camping area where you can find shaded and open sites, quite a few big rig friendly.

We stayed here for a stopover night on our way to Tofino. You need to know where the campground is located; there are no signs until you have reached the place. The location is nice, away from any traffic, thus very quiet. Unfortunately the roads (gravel) inside the campground are in bad shape, lot of potholes and washouts. Low hanging branches also. Be careful when driving in or out with a big rig. We are 51' combined and the trailer is 34'. We had a W/E site right below the office and the site was just large enough for the trailer. When checking in the lady wasn't unfriendly but she wasn't very friendly either. Not to eager to host overnighters I assume. Our assigned site was unlevel and was not cleaned up. Food waste all over the place. Garbage in the fire pit. This just added to the impression of rundown and unmaintained we already had from the roads. Hookups were in the far back but OK. We could catch the Wi-Fi from the office, but I guess any further from the office the signal would be to weak. Overall a quiet place for the night but not very appealing due its lack of maintenance. More a place for permanents or seasonals. We would try a different place with a better value for money on our next stop in Port Alberni.

Very nice Provincial Park. We stayed in the upper loop, which offers some sites suitable for big rigs. We are 51' combined length and had no problem backing in. Very level sites. Excellent privacy in our site (#2). There are no hookups, but water spigots throughout the park. No Wi-Fi, very weak cell phone reception. The camp host was friendly and had a few stories to tell. Nice trails right off the park. Though Hwy 4 is only a few hundred metres away it was completely quiet at night. Lots to do in the area. Coombs and Parksville are only a short drive away as is Cathedral Grove and Cameron Lake. This time it was only a stopover for us, but we will be back for a longer stay.

This is probably one of the best value for money RV Parks on the island. Tucked away in the Seal Bay Park it is a very quiet location with trails to hike or bike right off the campground. Our rate includes taxes and charge for Wi-Fi. I rather pay a few bucks for an excellent WiFi like this than have it "free" in the rate and then find it spotty. There are group sites in the open, no privacy. Other sites are nestled in the woods and have some shrubs between sites. We stayed in the group area and liked it there. Very easy to get in and out (we are 51' combined), level and spacious site with hookups in excellent order. Super quiet at night. Next grocery store is a 10km drive. We will come back for sure.

From Hwy 12 it is a five mile drive uphill on a narrow and winding road. But thus, you get away from the traffic noise in the gorge. Except for some distant train noise this park is super quiet. We choose one of the transient sites right at the office. Lots of room to get in and out there. Not so much if you take a site further back. I found the steep and narrow gravel roads inside the park and the little room to maneuver when backing into a terrace site in the forest challenging for me and my 51(combined length) rig. But it would be very private to stay up there. Lots of trees and greenery between the sites. Sites are gravel. Leveling took one board. Hookups in the back. WiFi was OK. However, the rate is ambitious, and that's why the rating is only 9 and not 10. We'll come back anyway.

Quiet park just a few miles west of Port Angeles. Rate includes Good Sam discount. We were assigned one of the new pull through sites which are large and level. BUT when we had parked we almost stepped on some dog poo on the grass pad beside our trailer. There was more than one 'mine' left. Other than that the site was perfect. Little privacy though. Hookups in the right place and in good shape. WiFi worked well with one of our computers; the other couldn't catch the signal. The roads inside the park are narrow, and there are some pretty tight turns. We are 51' combined length, and there was not too much room when making the turns. Drive slowly and carefully!

Very nice place to stay and explore Astoria and the area. When driving through Astoria from the east your GPS might suggest to take a shortcut over a steep hill. Stay on the main road to the roundabout! When checking in the very friendly lady told us stories about poor fellow campers who did the uphill/downhill shortcut. We were given a site backing to the golf course so we had a very nice view through our rear window. I'm not sure if the sites in the front part of the park are the same rate, that would be somewhat ambitious. Sites are gravel, in excellent shape as the whole park is. You can tell somebody pays attention to detail. Perfect hookups. One sewer in the middle, one in the back of the site. Good Wi-Fi. Only concern was the lack of privacy. The sites were well spaced and had some shrubs and flowers in between though. Any road noise died down after 8 pm and we enjoyed a very quiet night. We will stay again when in the area.

Excellent park. Five miles off the interstate, so no traffic noise at night. The 1/4 mile gravel road to the entrance is very well maintained and no problem for any rig. The sites are large, easy to get in and out, well level. Gravel on grass. Excellent hookups. WiFi was OK, but I wonder how it will be when the park is full. With only 20% occupancy privacy was good. This will be different when most sites are occupied, since there is nothing between the sites. Staff was very friendly. Some traffic noise from the nearby road but that died down after 7 pm. We had a good night's sleep. Whenever traveling in the area we will stay here again.

Nice little campground in a perfect location right next to the beach. Very friendly staff/owner. Quiet at night (except for lull of the waves). Very well maintained place. Will come again.

The rate includes a Good Sam discount. When we arrived we mistook a part of the park for a storage. We've never seen a park where RV's were packed so close. Luckily this was the seasonal area. The transients area had the same design but was only 40% full, so we enjoyed a little privacy. Level was ok. Hookups in the right place. Lots of trees provided shade and there was a little trail around the park. VERY family friendly! Our kids are grown up, but if we had little ones, this would be a place to camp together. We would come back for a couple of nights in the shoulder season, but in high season only sardines would enjoy the stay.

Rate reflects a Good Sam discount. This park looks perfect. Full hookup pull thru with WiFi and cable. Concrete sites with grass in between, perfectly placed hookups and extremely friendly staff to welcome you and guide you to your site. However, we needed a board to level and choose to not use the free Tengo WiFi. Our Verizon worked well instead. Interstate noise was noticeable at night, we needed earplugs for a good night sleep. This muted out the distant train noise as well. We would consider this place again for a stopover but not more.

As always, we rate value for money. Only 4 miles from Bryce Canyon entry this park is a very good deal. Our rate reflects a Good Sam discount. Full hookup pull thru sites, though the sewer was too far in the back for us. Very unlevel sites, we had to use a lot of levelling equipment like other campers. But that's the only really downer in that park. Our rig is 51 feet combined length and we had no problem getting in and out, driving carefully and watching out for trees of course. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Very quiet at night. No comment on the washrooms and showers since we idn't use them. Excellent laundry. We'll be back to enjoy more of Bryce Canyon.

This park is right on the junction of Highway 89 and SR 9 leading to Zion NP east entrance. Check in is at the Shell gas station. It's just a place to park your rig with full hookups and explore the area. No restrooms, no showers. Road noise throughout the day, almost none from 8 pm to 6 am. Weekends are more busy traffic wise. The parking lot is gravel and dirt, looks pretty run down, but everything works fine. Hookups in the right place, no WiFi, no cable. We asked for the WiFi password for the motel across the street and received it for free. So we had excellent WiFi. I needed to prune one tree at our site a little to prevent branches from screeching on the roof during the night. Overall not an appealing location, but cheap and with easy access to Zion. We enjoyed our daily commuting drive into the park, saving $15 for the tunnel each day.

We would have rated this a 10 if it wasn't for the Wi-Fi. It worked really well for two days, then by Friday night was pretty much not usable. Either unable to connect or terribly slow. But the park is very nice and we stayed longer than planned. The sides are sloped front to back but easy to level. Hookups are in very good condition and were where you want them. Easy in and out. Pretty quiet at night, almost no traffic noise till morning. Ask for a site in the back. Not much privacy, but we were lucky in site 49 as there was a pole where the neighboring site would be giving us double the room to the next camper. A tree made for a little shade. Nice rim trail right out of the park. Staff was very friendly and helpful, answering all the questions we had. We'll definitely come back.

This park is way overpriced. Lots of amenities in the lodge are prized in here. Our rate reflects a Good Sam discount already. The park is 2 miles off the highway, no noise whatsoever. Beautiful surroundings and a nice little trail in the back of the park leading to a rock arch and a gorgeous view of Monument Valley with the two Mittens. Our side was very difficult to level, sloped from front to back and side to side. Some looked way better level wise, maybe you should have a look before you accept an assigned site. Also, our site was too short to park our truck in front or behind our 34 RV. Little privacy. The staff was not friendly, not polite, and not very helpful. The electric and water hookups were good but sewer too far in the back for us. Wi-Fi was reliable but slow. Our Verizon MiFi did not work though we saw other Verizon hotspots when checking for available networks. Overall value for money average at best. Next time we would try one of the dry camping options in the area.

Perfect for an overnight stay. The rate reflects a Good Sam discount. Easy to get in and out, fairly level (we needed one board) and good hookups except for the sewer which was in the back, too far away for us. Nights sleep was good, but some early morning noise from a dumpster handling facility in the neighborhood. We caught the Wi-Fi signal with our antenna booster. If you don't have one you need to go to the lobby. Don't miss the Dinosaur tracks, just a few miles down the highway!

The best place to stay if you want to explore the Grand Canyon. Shuttle buses (free) stop at the RV park entrance every 15 minutes from 4:30 am to 10 pm. Make a reservation (possible online), otherwise you'll probably have to move on. Most of the year the park is fully booked. The sites are gravel, we leveled with a few boards. Hookups are arranged perfectly and in good condition. Verizon MiFi varied between one and three bars but worked well. Very quiet at night, a little noise from the sunrise viewers but that's negligible. Little privacy, since the layout is parking lot style. But this makes for all pull throughs. We'll come back for sure.

Our '7' rating considers the Passport America discount. The price policy of the owner remains his secret. We paid $19 for the first two nights, $27 for the next two. However, rates change with the months and you should ask in advance. The park is located right on a small river, we had a back in site there. Fairly level dirt sites with good hookups. The dump station is on the way out but the location is very unfortunate as it is in a curve and the road has a 4% grade there. The sites are very close together. If all sites are occupied backing in might be a challenge. Two neighboring awnings on the same side won't work. Pretty quiet at night with only a few cars in the morning on the adjacent road. The way in and out is a 10% grade, pretty bumpy, but manageable. Wi-Fi is Tengo (pay per day). Our Verizon hotspot was very weak, not usable. Most campers had a hard time getting a satellite signal between the trees. We would return because of the beautiful location, but only if the place is not fully booked. Anyway, a good choice to stay here and commute to the Sedona attractions.

We called in the morning to make sure they would have a site available to accomodate our 34 foot 5th wheel. We were told there were plenty of sites available, no reservation required. When we arrived at 3pm the last of the few sites that were large enough was just taken. We walked through the park and found it not maintained at all. Most sites are very small, looked like an assembly of potholes, and the hookups were spread all over the place, requiring hoses up to 100 feet to connect. Don't go there with a big rig! The owners don't care about the RV park; their priority is the cafe. Luckily we had spotted another place to stay just a few miles up the highway. We can not recommend this park and will not consider to stay here if in the area.

We wish there would be more places like this along the interstates. Just a mile away, but very quiet at night. No noise from the interstate. The only downer is the long road to the visitor center for check in and the back to the campground. The road is plagued by erosion which caused cracks, and it feels like speed bumps every 50 yards. The sites in the campground are well apart from each other and fairly level. Good hookups. Dump station on the way in/out. No WiFi, but good Verizon coverage. We checked out the ruins but you need a lot of imagination to get excited about the place. However, if we needed to stay overnight in a 50 mile radius, this park would be our choice. A little known gem in the area is the little painted desert county park, just 12 miles away. Leave the park, go to the highway, turn left and drive 12 miles north till you see the signs to turn left. It's just a quarter mile rim drive left and right but an amazing view when the sun rises (that's when we were there). Maybe sunset is also worth driving there.

The rate is Passport America. We chose this park to avoid the others very close to the interstate. Well, the highway 550, which is very close is as busy as an interstate, maybe even worse. Night sleep was only possible with earplugs. The other complaint I have is the low branches which almost got stuck under the AC when pulling in. Some pruning is due! Other than that, this park offers very good value for the money (if you have Passport America). The sites are fairly level and hookups are OK if you don't mind sharing the water hookup with your neighbor. The best thing is a little cassita right beside the concrete pad of your site, providing some shelter from the sun and wind. There is even a light and a fan which is probably much appreciated in the summer. We would come again, but then ask for a site in the far back to hopefully avoid some of the highway noise.

What a beautiful place to stay. The rate doesn't include the 10$ reservation fee we needed to pay to make sure to have a site for our 34 foot 5th wheel. Most sites are smaller. But even with the reservation fee the overall value is very good. Far away from any traffic noise, well spaced sites with some desert greenery in between. Hookups are in the back, easy to connect. Site was a little unlevel but very well maintained. No Wi-Fi, but Verizon worked well. Unfortunately in spring, winds are strong and lots of dust in the air. Therefore, we couldn't enjoy the views into the desert or up the mountains. But we will come back sometimes in the future and stay for a few days, not only overnight.

Our second stay here. Somehow it felt a lot quieter this time. Way less road noise than in December though our site was only 50 yards more away this time. However, this is a wonderful park to stay at and explore Tucson's attractions. Also the park itself has a lot to offer, like abundant hiking trails . The sites are paved and level. Hookups are in good shape and well located. There is a dump station on the way in/out. No Wi-Fi, but excellent Verizon coverage. The thing we missed most was some privacy between the sites (we were in the B section; A seems to be a little better). Otherwise excellent value for the money. Groceries are just minutes away, we rode our bicycles there. Definitely our place to stay again when in Tucson.

We wanted to stay at a campground closer to El Morro NM, but it turned out to be a really poor one. So we turned around and drove back to La Tinaja. They had a sign outside which stated full hookups. We got very warm welcome by the owners mother. The site was perfect for us. Pull-through with all the hookups we needed, quiet at night, free Wi-Fi, a gorgeous view and a great restaurant on site. So far they have no washrooms as they have owned the place just for a year or so. It is not a campground to stay for weeks but surely for some days to explore the area. The owner is a Navajo who even speaks German fluently. We will come back when in the area.

This is one of the best campgrounds we ever stayed in. We had been here in December 2012 and now in March the stay was as enjoyable as last year. Although the campground was fully booked you don't recognize it because the sites are so far away from each other. Lots of greenery between the sites. This is as beautiful as desert can get. The sites are fairly level, easy to get in and provide electric and water. Dump station on the way in/out. No Wi-Fi but very good Verizon coverage. Nice views days and night (mountains or twinkling city lights). Super friendly staff at the ranger station and visitor center. A nice park is adjacent with picnic areas and walking trails. We will be back and even take a detour to stay here if we are remotely in the area.

This park (and the whole area) is acceptable for a stopover or a few nights at best but I wonder how people can spend a whole winter here. Our rate included a Good Sam discount. The sites are level and easy to back in but there is no privacy, no picnic table, no fire pit, no nothing. Hookups were perfect. Though we had a site right at the office, Wi-Fi was a joke. Even using an antenna booster, connecting was impossible. Bring a hotspot or go inside the office or common room. The whole park is gravel, a few Saguaros here and there. We would stay again for a stopover but not for longer.

Unfortunately we could only stay for one night before we had to leave for another RV park in the area because a group event had completely booked this park. We have stayed here earlier and will return in the future. The park is a few miles off the busy highway, so noise is not an issue at night. During the day some shooting and ATV noise is going on. The sites are sand, pretty large, and easy to get in and out. Our rate was for a pull through full hookup including an escapee member discount. Leveling was easy, the hookups were in good order, and perfectly placed. Sites are arranged parallel and some oleanders give a little privacy. We cannot comment on the restrooms or showers since we did not use them. However, value for money is very good and the lack of Wi-Fi is bearable for a few days. Shopping and Wi-Fi is about 8 miles away.

The nightly rate is a mix of Passport America rate for two days and Good Sam rate for the third day for a full hookup pull thru site. First, the complaints about the WiFi from previous reviewers are all true. We could not even connect. But Verizon MiFi worked well. However, this park is so excellent in all other respects we rate it a 10 nevertheless. Very friendly staff. The sites are well spaced and the shrubs around along with the wooden fenced in patio provides privacy and shelter from the blowing wind. The pull thru sites are all sloped, leveling equipment is needed. The hookups are easily accessible. Very quiet park. No noise at night whatsoever, very little traffic noise during day time. Besides the trash dump there are bins for recyclables. Shopping amenities in walking distance. We would stay again and enjoy the relaxing atmosphere in the well laid out park.

The location is perfect for exploring Chiricahua Nat. Monument or Fort Bowie. This is a campground in the desert, not much shade to expect. The sites are large enough to accommodate any size of RV. They are dirt, fairly level, full hook-ups with easy access. All have concrete pads. There is no cable and no WiFi but excellent Verizon coverage. The washrooms are dated but nice and clean. After a quiet night (traffic started at 5am) we had a great breakfast (full hot breakfast at $4 to $8) at their restaurant which is very recommendable. We would stay there again.

We stayed here a couple of nights while exploring Joshua Tree NP because our favourite RV Park in Joshua Tree was full. We got a pull thru for overnighters with full hookups. Unfortunately we could not connect to the sewer because it was too far back. The site was level, but on the narrow side. No privacy. No picnic table or fire pit. It was fairly quiet, except for some early morning traffic in the park (5 am) on weekdays. The WiFi worked mostly well, just a few dropouts here and there. We didn't use any of the amenities (pool, Gym, tennis court) but you pay for those anyway. Although our rate included a Good Sam discount we think the rate is a little ambitious. Since we do not like to pay for amenities we don't use we'll return to our favourite RV Park next time.

Nice county park with ten full hookup sites,regular spaced, level concrete pad, back in, picnic table, and fire pit. When we camped there in December just two other campers were there. It was fairly quiet during night time. Our rate reflects the winter rate which is less expensive than the other park across the creek. Good place for a weekend or stop-over. The exit lane has a tight turn so we took the entrance lane and had no trouble with our 34'fifth wheel. We would not recommend anything larger than 40'. We would stay there again.

The only things we missed here was the Wi-Fi (may be at the nature center) and a more elaborate recycling. Everything else was just perfect. The friendly and helpful staff, the beautiful site tucked away in the desert vegetation, lots of privacy, nice pick nick bench, BBQ, fire pit, quiet, gorgeous views, sunsets and the wildlife (coyotes and rabbits) occasionally on the site. Nice hiking trails. Perfect location for any kind of biking. We will for sure come again.

First of all there is no more Wi-Fi in this park! This is the second worse campground we ever stayed at. Close to the sites is a very busy highway with lots of trucks passing even during the night time. And a train is running at least every hour. At 4:30 in the morning we left. The serviced sites are in the back of the main parking lot, paved but narrow and sloped. The hookups are good. No privacy between the sites. The views are nice, the low tide did not smell to much. We will not return to this campground or one in the vicinity because of the noise.

This park was build in 1986 and has a lot of park models dating back to this time even though well maintained. Just a few lot holders put in some greenery to make it nicer. The sites are surrounded by small adobe walls which unfortunately give no privacy. Given the location, 10 miles out of Yuma we expected the park to be more quiet. But we were bothered by traffic noise, a shooting area and helicopter noise. We would rather pay for Wi-Fi then go with an internet like there, it was just a disaster. Finally we missed a recycling concept. If in the area we would stay there again because value for money is very good and the people are so nice.

This is a very well maintained park. The owners are very friendly and helpful. The sites are regular sized, compacted gravel with a concrete patio. Hookups are in the back with a little greenery. There is no privacy between the sites. The washrooms and the laundry are very clean (laundry W/D $1.25/0.75). Given the location it was quiet at night. Convenient for shopping groceries. This place is great for checking out Organ Pipe NM. We would stay there again.

This park is conveniently located close to shopping but also close to a highway with some traffic noise. The views are gorgeous. The sites are roomy and well level, easy to get in and out but provide no privacy though. The picnic tables are just ugly looking like rusty iron grid. The is no wifi or laundry available. Don't park on grass or you will get a letter from the host. Be aware there are cold pockets where the temperature falls way below freezing in winter. However it is a nice place to stay if it is not full.

The perfect place for an overnight stay, but not more. Our rate was for a W/E pull-through site with a discount for Escapees. Wi-Fi is available for 10$/day. We caught the signal from Loves with our antenna booster instead. Level sites, quiet at night except for some occasional distant train noise. Nices views to the mountains. Some shrubs and small trees between the sites. About 5 miles to drive for groceries. We would stay again when travelling in the area.

The location is perfect to explore Sequoia NP. The park is not big rig friendly except for the boondock area, which is beautiful in the back at the river. Our rate was for a back-in W/E site. Wi-Fi was mostly OK. Backing in was a challenge because the site had trees in all four corners, making maneouvring somewhat tricky. We made it because the opposite site was empty, otherwise we probably would have failed to get in. Leveling was easy. Beside the grassy site was a concrete patch with a large picnic table. Park was quiet, but some residents leave early in the morning so you might wake up at 5:30 am before falling asleep again. We didn't use any facilities, we peeked in though and realized there was only one washing machine for the whole park. However, we liked it here and would stay again if revisiting Sequoia NP.

Probably the best layout of all RV Parks we have stayed in ever. The sites are spread out in a hilly area with lots of trees and shrubs. Even in the few parallel sites you keep your privacy. Perfect hookups, very level and good size sites. Wi-Fi was the best we ever had since one repeater was right on our site. Nice clubhouse and lots of activities. Very friendly staff and very friendly fellow campers. We stayed for nine days and would have stayed longer if it wasn't for the traffic noise from the nearby state road. It depends a lot on where your site is located in the park; there are some fully exposed to the road noise, some are very quiet. For groceries you need to drive to Oakhurst, about 16 miles away. We'll return for sure and hope for a quieter site next time.

The sites in this park are average sized, not really spacious. All have concrete pads with gravel around it. Unfortunately our site was sloping to one side. A little palm tree comes with the site, but there is no shade and no (zero) privacy. Lots of the owners have put up casitas for storage or living in and some additional greenery. The park overall is very clean and well maintained. It is pretty quiet, the nearby airport doesn't bother during night time. The storage facility across the street was a greater issue. Every site has one (!) access to Wi-Fi. The Wi-Fi itself has a strong signal, but works most of the time extremely slowly and drops out. It is a known issue. The price we paid reflects the weekly rate. Overall the value for money is bad and we will not stay there again.

We chose this campground because reviews said it is quiet and in fact it is very quiet. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The sites are all gravel and very close together. Make sure you park your rig right to have access to the sewer. The wireless works ok-ish in the early morning, for the rest of the day just forget it. The park has wonderful trails with great views and on the other side it is just a mile to a shopping center with Raleigh, Target and HomeDepot. Our rate reflects a AAA discount. We will come again when in the area.

The driveways and the sites were paved, level, clean, with excellent hookups, rest was grassy. Clean laundry, $2 washer, $1 dryer.

Don't mix this park up with Bandon RV Park, which is basically a gravel parking lot on Hwy 101 in Bandon. Bandon by the Sea RV Park is 2 miles south of Bandon, just off Hwy 101 to the right, when traveling south. Our rate reflects a 10% Good Sam discount for a full hookup pull through site. You drive on a concrete patch, so leveling is a breeze. Hookups are in top shape and easy to access. Strongest and fastest Wi-Fi we experienced in a RV park since a long time. Very quiet at night, no road noise from 101. In November the lack of shade was no problem. The side by side arrangement of the sites provides no privacy which is our main reason for down-rating this park one notch. When heading back north to Canada we'll stay here again.

We have been invited by Escapee friends who are permanents in this beautiful park. Large gravel sites, easy to get in and out, very level and hookups as they should be. Very quiet at night. Staff is very friendly and fellow campers also. Hard to avoid a chat when you meet someone. We liked it. Lots of activities going on every day, mostly in the clubhouse which offers a library, pool billiard, an exercise room and more. Only reason for not rating the park a '10' is the lack of privacy between the sites and the WiFi which is only available at the clubhouse (we could catch it with our antenna booster from our site though). We'll return for sure and stay longer next time, since we are Escapees now, too!

A lady in the Visitor Center in Reedsport had recommend this RV park, and right she was! Perfect location, well off Hwy 101, a marina on one side, a bay on the other. The gorgeous Umqua Beach is only one mile away. Sites are paved, top level, and offer perfectly arranged full hookups. The rate depends on the site's size and location in the park. Our rate reflects a 10% Good Sam discount for a large pull through in second row from the bay. The only reason we don't rate this park a '10' is the lack of privacy between the sites and the Wi-Fi which we only could catch because we use an antenna booster.

The rate reflects a 10% Good Sam discount. The park is located just across from the beach with the distinctive Haystack rock (smaller than the Cannon Beach one). The staff was very friendly and explained everything well. Adjacent to the check-in office is a well stocked grocery store offering competitive prices. The park itself is nice, very well maintained. Sites are parallel, some separated by some hedges (where deers are nibbling on at dusk). Our site was narrow and a little short so we needed to park our truck elsewhere. But it was easy to get in and out and levelling was no problem. Hookups in top condition. WiFi was excellent. Very quiet, little to no traffic, just the ocean roaring constantly, a sound we don't consider to be noise. Lots of rabbits running around sometimes even approaching you instead of running away. Probably a lot of fun for kids. We can recommend this park and would stay again when in the area.

This park is under new management (as far is I was told). Very friendly when making the reservation and very friendly when meeting in person the next day (we arrived late). Site was easy to get in and out, no problems leveling the rig. All hookups well located and in good shape. I don't quite understand the comments about the 30 amp service. It's 30 amp only, yes, but stable and in good shape. Wi-Fi was good. The location right across the bay is nice. Very quiet at night and just 2 miles away from a large QFC store. This park offers little more than a place to park your RV. There is no shade and the sites offer no privacy. Not an issue for us because the park was pretty empty and in November you don't struggle with heatwaves, but this might be a different story in summertime. And for what you get we feel the price is a little ambitious. We didn't use any facilities since we just stayed for one night. We would stay again, when in the area.

Rate reflects a 10% Good Sam discount. This park is very nice and we liked the layout. Not the usual "parking lot" layout side by side, but spread out and with some room between each other. Just off the Hwy 101 but very quiet at night except for the constant roaring of the ocean. The sites are paved, excellent level and come with perfectly arranged hookups. Very good and reliable Wi-Fi, though we stayed in the very end of the park. Trees provide the shade you will appreciate in summertime. Quite a few amenities like a pool, hot-tub and more. Even a gas station on site, though the gas prices are ambitious. Overall appearance was excellent. Given how busy it was in early November I would expect this park fully booked during summer. A five minute walk takes you to the town and the beach which is spectacular. We will return for sure.

We stayed for one night, but wouldn't stay again and that's for a couple of reasons. The staff is extremely friendly, directing you to your site and showing all the hookups. But the site we got was sloped from side to side, so we needed a lot of back and forth and boards under the wheels before getting leveled. Hookups were fine. But as it turned out, the water was really dirty, muddy, thus clogging up our water filter within half an hour. Cleaning and letting the water run for a while didn't help. Still dirty water and the filter was clogged again and again. The night was quiet until early in the morning there was a lot of door slamming, truck engine warm ups and traffic on the gravel roads in the park. That's what sometimes happens in parks with lots of permanents. The park itself is well maintained but there is no privacy and mostly no shade. Not an issue in November, but summertime might be different. WiFi was hard to get. We needed a dozen tries when arriving and couldn't get online at all the next morning. After a walk to the office and reporting the problem it was resolved in a minute. We can't comment on the washrooms or showers since we didn't use them. I would expect them in good condition. However, we feel the campground is overpriced for what you get and we would try another campground when in the area the next time.

After choosing this park for its good reviews, we were pretty disappointed and feel like the park is overrated and overpriced. It might be a good place to stay for seasonals or family vacations since there are a lot of amenities (heated pool, hot tub, horseshoes, volleyball, rec hall, you name it) in this park. But from our point of view, being a traveller, the value for money is just poor. The sites are very narrow with a raised concrete patch for the picnic table alongside which you have to back in. After getting the slides out the neighbor's awning was less than one foot away. Privacy? Forget it. Quite a few sites have trees in the way you want to use to back in. Hookups are in the far back, you will need looong hoses to connect. WiFi was poor, weak signal with dropouts every now and then and slow when working. Leveling was almost impossible due to tree roots and a left to right slope in the site. The views over the strait to the mainland are partly hidden by retaining walls. The "beach" is just gravel. The best was actually the silence at night. Staff was friendly but not really helpful when assigning the site. Having called in advance we were told there was only one site left to accommodate a large trailer like ours (34'). In fact we discovered at least half a dozen vacant sites (and staying vacant during our stay) which would have been a way better choice to park our rig. We won't come back.

Basically this is a huge gravel parking lot just half a mile past a shopping mall north of Campbell River. Sites are arranged side by side, no trees, no shade, no privacy. The road between the RV park and the water isn't busy at all, very quiet at night indeed. The sites are well leveled, easy to get in and out and the hookups are arranged perfectly. Wi-Fi was reliable and mostly fast. Overall a good place to stay for a reasonable price if you go out for day trips in the area. The place itself is not the nicest to hang out and the more attractive sites to the rear that offer some nice views to Strathcona are occupied by seasonals. However, if looking for a place to stay for a few nights in the area we would come here again.

A 4km gravel road out of Port McNeill leads to this small campground located on a plateau that allows for nice views over some islands to the mainland. The sites are laid out in a circle, side by side. No trees, no privacy. Towables have to back in and then find the hookups on the "wrong" side. Level was good. Very quiet place to stay. The WiFi was very slow. Below the campground is some kind of a gravel pit and some containers. You have to ignore it and focus on the view over the strait. Not much to do here but we would choose this place over other campgrounds in the area which we checked out. We'll return for the peace, quietness and contemplating views we enjoyed here.

This is our new favorite RV park on Vancouver Island. Quite remote, adjacent to a large park with nice trails, it's very relaxing and quiet. The rate includes taxes and the extra fee for WiFi ($2/day rsp. $6/week) which was excellent, stable and fast. We stayed in one of the two brand new group campsites, where 12 sites are arranged in a circle (no shade). Compacted gravel made for a very easy to level site, the hookups were well arranged and lots of room to get in and out (back-in). The cable wasn't activated yet but I heard from other campers about the long list of channels available. The other sites are nicely arranged in a forest, each one well apart from the other. There is a fishing pond and a newly built BBQ area with a large shelter nearby. The owner has put a lot of thoughts in the development of the park and is still not done. His goal is to have 190 sites available in a few years. The only downside I can find is the distance (about 10 km) to shopping. We'll be back soon!

There is not a lot of positive things about this park. We called them in advance to check if they could accommodate us (34' fifth wheel plus towing truck). We were told that would be no problem. When we arrived it took us half an hour to find a site which was long enough and had space to maneuver. The girl at the reception was not of much help. The site had a nice view but was quite muddy because there was heavy rain the days before. We had to share the water and electric with our neighbor. Once the boat traffic on the lake calmed down it was very quiet. Next morning we couldn't dump at the entrance because there was not enough space to get in. The park in general looked a bit aged but maintained. The free Wi-Fi was unreliable to not existent. The value for money is bad. We would not stay there again.

After a warm welcome, we were free to pick our site and went for the best views. It is a very quiet place with lots of nature around. For kids they have a lovely playground. The site was level with a nice picnic bench and a parasol on a wooden deck. The Wi-Fi was average. We enjoyed the solitude very much and would stay here again.

This campground is located a few blocks off Crowsnest Highway #3. Unfortunately it is next to 2nd Street which is very busy during day time but traffic dies down at night. The site we got was quite level but narrow and small. The hookups were quite a spaghetti factory (lots of extension cords). Apparently the lawn gets more attention than the sites. The free wi-fi came with lots of blackouts. Our rate reflects a Good Sam discount. We consider this park as a stopover location. Value for money is average.

This campground is run by the Lions Club. We only stayed one night while traveling trough Canada. When we arrived we were scared by a road sign limiting the vehicle weight to 6000 lbs, we decided to ignore it and found no reason for the limit on the way to the campground entrance. No office, someone came around to collect the rate. The site was W/E back-in. Well, the water was labelled not drinkable, so it was more an E site. No Wi-Fi or cable. Due to some rain the last days the grassy underground was very soft and we felt quite wobbly inside the trailer. We actually took a long detour from the Freeway to find a quiet overnight place but surprisingly it wasn't that quiet at all! Fellow campers going and returning from fishing till late at night, then cleaning their boats and equipment. Also quite some ATV's and other fun driving around the campground. We would not stay again.

It takes a 25 km bumpy road drive from the Yellowhead Highway to come to Good Spirit but if you appreciate a very quiet area this might be a good place to stay. Sites are back in, good size and easy to level. Excellent privacy, lots of foliage between sites. However the underground is soft and the sites are sandy, so bring something to put your jacks on. Electric only, water fill stations at the dump station and at several other locations in the campground. Lots of activities for families with kids of all ages. Lake beach, playground, trails, Minigolf, Beachvolleyball, you name it. Maybe a bit too far off the Highway for a stopover night like we did, but for sure a pleasant park for a weekend or even a family vacation.

Very nice and quiet campground. Our rate was for a full hookup pull through site which was easy to get in and out and very level. Perfectly arranged hookups. Only a few trees, thus little privacy. Free Wi-Fi, fast and reliable. Good location for daytrips to Glacier National Park or Waterton Park. Also the carriage museum is well worth a visit. The campground is very well maintained and the owner is very friendly and helpful. We hope to find more campgrounds like this one.

We stayed in Old Baldy. There are several campgrounds one beside the other; check in all at the same entrance office. Very nice location. Staying in a somewhat mountainous area after days of traveling through the prairies is a relief. Our rate was for a pull through water and electric site including taxes. The site was spacious, very level and had good hookups. Unfortunately it was raining all night so we didn't hike on one of the nice looking trails. We would have stayed longer but next morning it was still raining and all the trails were muddy and uninviting. However, this is a very nice place to stay and hike or enjoy the lake. There is no Wi-Fi in the parks and we couldn't steal a signal from a nearby lodge either (rangers tip). When in the area we would stay again and take the 35 km detour from the Trans Canada Highway, it's worth it.

The first time we left a campground instead of checking in. A terrible, pothole rich gravel road parallel to the Trans Canada Highway leads to the entrance. We asked for a site in the back to avoid the highway noise. We were offered two sites to choose from. Luckily we decided to walk instead of driving because the road inside the campground was even worse. Tons of serious potholes. The first site we looked at was mostly flooded due to heavy rain the days before. The other one was almost dry but completely unlevel. The highway noise was still unbearable and the Wi-Fi signal was weak to nonexistent. We would not have stayed here even for free.

This park is just beautiful and worth every single dollar you spend. Our rate was for a back-in W/E site including taxes. Excellent park layout and very well maintained. Fair size, level sites with good hookup access. A lilac hedge surrounds the site and provides lots of privacy as well as a nice bloomy smell. Quiet at night. Excellent laundry facility, even providing an iron and board. Good reliable Wi-Fi. Just one dump station on the way out, this might be an issue when lots of campers leave at the same time. Water pressure is very high; you definitely need a pressure regulator. The friendly and helpful staff will remind you and sell a regulator in case you need one. Right now there is lots of construction on the way to the park. Ignore your GPS and take 11th Street to Avenue P.

An excellent RV park. Just 1.5 km off the Trans Canada Highway but absolutely quiet at night. Lots of seasonal campers with beautifully arranged lots. Still enough sites for travelers. Our rate reflects Passport America discount for a full hookup site, but even paying full price the value for money is very good. The park is well laid out, the sites are spacious and easy to get in and out. Most offer some privacy, some are just side by side. Leveling was easy, hookups in the back. Only the sewer hookup was a little awkward, a flexible hose sticking out of the ground about half a meter!? Wi-Fi available at the office and a few sites around. Very nice playground, pool, basketball court and more room to play located centrally behind the office. Super friendly staff. A small shop inside the office, DVD rentals, books, etc. We would like to find more RV parks like this.

This is not a resort at all! A campground, no more, no less. Our rating is simple to explain: 1 is the least you can rate, then this campgrounds earns one point each for the gorgeous view over the lake and the very silence at night. Other than that it's just ridiculous what you get for your money (No discounts whatsoever). Our back in site was the most unlevel we ever stayed in, sloped from front to back and side to side. The electrical hookup (15 amp) is flimsy, the water hookup OK. No sewer, no Wi-Fi, no cable. No privacy at all, nothing between the sites. The road to the campground is a 1.5km bumpy gravel road, inside the campground it's narrow but manageable. However, if the opposite sites of yours are occupied, backing in might become a bit tricky. Our 5th wheel is 34 feet and we did just OK. We had a peak inside the washrooms but didn't have the courage to use them, so we left the place unharmed. We won't return, if you want to stay there, don't use the website's official address because your GPS will send you somewhere in the outskirts of Espanola. The problem is known by the owner but doesn't seem to care about it. From the Trans Canada Hwy take Hwy 6 through Espanola and turn right at the large "Lake Apsey Resort" sign on the right about 5 km past Espanola.

Very nice park, everything looks like new. Spacious, level pull through sites, no privacy in lack of any trees though. Good hookups, excellent washrooms. The dump station is on the way out, easy to access. Wi-Fi only at the office but it's fast and reliable there. Our rating reflects value for money, we feel the price to be a little ambitious. However, we liked the place for being far from any traffic and we had a good night's sleep here. Also it's convenient to explore Thunder Bay's attractions. The paved road to the park is pretty bumpy but we would stay again at Chippewa when in the area.

This is a gem. The owners have put a lot of work and love into this place to make it a very cozy place to stay. The rate is for a full hookup pull through site with good Wi-Fi and cable with lots of channels. Sites are fairly level and offer some privacy. The owners are VERY friendly and eager to give you the best camping experience. After being guided to your site, a wood pallet is placed under your doorstep and all hookups and facilities are explained in detail. The restrooms and showers are spotless. Although the park is just off the Highway it is pretty quiet at night, the traffic noise dies down around 10 pm. If you want to stay here traveling westbound, be prepared to turn right after the Holiday Inn Express, you will see the campground sign very late. Traveling eastbound you need to watch out on the left when leaving Dryden. The phone number in this review listing was not posted correctly, the last digit (5) was missing. The correct number is 807-223-4945. The website link was not working when we tried it. The owners try to resolve some technical problems with their provider, so www.northwesterntentrvpark.com should be up and running again. We loved to find more RV parks like this.

The rate is for a W/E pull through site, includes taxes and reflects a Good Sam discount. No cable but free Wi-Fi in the office area. We stayed just one night but enough to tell this is a very nice campground. The way in is a little bumpy and inside we had a steep gravel road downhill to our site but the site itself was very spacious, good level and good hookup access. Lots of privacy, we couldn't even see any other campers. Just a few meters to walk to the beach, no water view though. Very friendly and helpful staff. During our stay we locked ourselves out and the owners did everything to help us out. In the summer season there seems to be lots of activities for families with kids. We didn't use any facilities. If in the area we would stay again.

Our rating reflects value for money. The rate includes HST and PA discount. Most of the sites are occupied by seasonals with older but good maintained equipment. Our site was more than spacious right on the lake with an incredible view. Leveling was not an problem, the 15 amp hookup was flimsy but worked well. No Wi-Fi, no cable but we were entertained by the geese and their cute chicks. At night it was surprisingly quiet. We would stay there again.

The rate is for a full hookup pull-through site including HST and GS discount. The staff is very friendly and explained everything in detail. Pretty much the only complaint we have is the low branches in the part of the campground we stayed in. The branches were trimmed considering travel trailers but not 5th wheels or Class A Motorhomes. In fact we could not get into our assigned site, because a low branch would have sheered our AC off. The site we got instead turned out to be a drive in, back out site because low branches were blocking the drive through way out. The site itself was level, good access to the hookups. Not much privacy. Apparently lots of seasonals. Surprisingly quiet at night given the campgrounds location just off the TC Hwy. In May and June bears are seen on the campground regularly. There is a propane filling station. No Wi-Fi. However, we would have stayed longer if it wasn't for the pouring rain (which is not the campgrounds fault). So we'll come back another time.

We stayed here just for one night and would stay again if in the area. We liked the quietness at night and the value for money (rate is for full hookup back-in site). Very friendly staff. We were guided to our site. Lots of room to manoeuvre when backing in. Site (gravel) was perfectly level and hookups easily accessable. Little privacy. On the way in you pass the cabins which date back to the 30's and look very rundown while the pool looks like brand new and very clean. Lake Ontario is just across the street. Unfortunately there is no beach or boardwalk to stroll along.

Rate is for a Water and Electric pull through. No discounts whatsoever. 27$ is still reasonable and the main reason for still rating it a 6. The site is grass, quite slopped and hard to level. There is no privacy. In fact this was the first campground we stayed in where I could shake hands with the neighbor from window to window. We couldn't pull out the awning because a tree was in the way. In the fire pit we found garbage from the previous site occupants, one of some signs we found that the staff has no attention to detail. Except for some train noise we had a good nights sleep. WiFi was ok. The day we left (check out = 2 pm) we visited the Genesee Village Museum which is lovely and just a few minutes away. Returning noonish we found our successors already waiting for the site, because staff had told them the site would be available as of noon. Very uncomfortable situation. Next time in the area we would try to find another campground.

Returning from a long US-trip we were shocked by the rate (which is for a full hookup pull through including HST and 5$ Wi-Fi/week). But there is nothing cheaper around. Very good place to explore the Ottawa area. Close (2 km) to the highway but enough distance for a good night's sleep. The campground is very nice, appears much like a country park, lots of seasonal campers, just a few sites for transients. The sites are gravel pads within grass, fairly level, and good hookup access. The owners are extremely friendly and helpful. A shopping area which offers all you need is just a few kilometers away. We liked the campground's garbage management. Bins for all kinds of recycling and even a compost. We didn't use any facilities, just noticed there is no laundry. We would come again for sure.

Nice spot for a stopover night or a weekend. Very friendly staff. The sites are grass, mainly an open field with a few trees within and surrounding. The rate is Good Sam for a water and electric pull-through.. This park now has Wi-Fi which is fast and reliable. We expected the area to be more quiet, but the traffic on the close SR14 didn't die down till 11 p.m. and woke us by 6 a.m. The campground appears to be very well maintained. I can't comment on any facilities since we didn't use them. There is no laundry but a dump station. A small grocery is just a few hundred yards away. If traveling in the area we would stay again for a stopover night.

The rate is for a water and electric pull-through with a Good Sam discount. Well away from any traffic noise this is a well laid out park with very friendly staff. It appears to be very family with kids of all ages oriented. The sites are mostly under trees, side by side, a little narrow and short. Good level though and good hookup access. Perfect Wi-Fi. We had heavy (I mean it) rain during our stay and the staff immediately cared about new potholes in the campground roads. Though it is not to close to the Blue Ridge and the Skyline Drive we found it to be a very good location to explore Staunton and go for a couple of day trips on the Parkways. We would definitely stay again.

This is the perfect place to explore the battlefield. Just one mile away from the Visitor Center with museum and where the tours start. However, we found the sites (gravel in grass) to be not very level, little privacy but good hookups. The Wi-Fi was terribly slow and unreliable. During the weekend there was heavy traffic (even buses!) on the gravel roads inside the campground since the tent area was packed and all traffic to and from the tent area and horse stables came along our site. Other than that it was rather quiet. Our rate was a mix of Good Sam and Passport America for a full hookup pull through. When we return to Gettysburg we would stay here again but request a site far away from the main campground road.

Nice campground just two miles off the Parkway. The office was closed but following the instructions to pick your site, grab your Wi-Fi and bathroom codes, drop the money in a box was easy. All sites are spacious, gravel and provide good accessibility to the hookups. However, it was hard to find a level one. Most sites are sloped. No shade and nothing but grass between the sites. No picnic tables or fire pits. VERY quiet at night. Best Wi-Fi we ever experienced on a campground ever. Super-fast and reliable. We didn't use any facilities. When we return to the Parkway we will stay again in this campground.

A very nice place to stay. Nestled in the woods, just a short walk down to the lake. We got fooled by our GPS when approaching, luckily my wife glanced a sign reading "Rolling View". Following for about 10 miles we finally found the entrance to the park. Nobody in the rangers office. However, the campground's map showed our reserved site. It turned out to be a bit narrow but nicely arranged staircase to a private picnic area. Very quiet and if there would have been other campers, we still would have had a lot of privacy since the sites are well apart from each other with trees and shrubs in between. There is no Wi-Fi or cable here and no chance to catch any signals under the tree canopies. Definitely worth coming back and staying again.

After checking in we thought this would become a clear 10 rating. We had the best reception ever on a campground, very friendly and informative. We were guided to our site and helped while backing in. Sites are gravel with perfectly arranged hookups, sitting side by side (no privacy) around a lake. Easy to level and a small concrete patio with picnic table. Far out in the bushes this place is very quiet but still a good location to explore Elizabeth City though. Here is why our rating is only an eight: (1) Wi-Fi turned out to shut off quite often. Just a few seconds blackout, but this can be pretty annoying. (2) Endless mowing. Running over and over already cut grass leads to no progress and produces just noise for nothing. (3) In the morning all washers and dryers were blocked for hours since their small motel and cabins room maid did laundry. (4) After the first night a new camper was assigned the site right besides us, although about five sites to both sides were empty. What a ridiculous site assignment policy. However, for 20$/night (PA rate), we still would stay again if in the area.

A nice place to relax and get away from any hustle and bustle. Very friendly staff. The site was grass; it is very level, easy to back in. Sewer hookup is too far in the back for us; bring a loong hose. The rate is PA. Electric is metered and extra (we spent 3.45$ for three days). Very quiet day and night. We followed the staff's recommendation to buy some fresh fish at the local harbor, a 5 minute walk away. Good advice. Grocery was also in walking distance. Nice feature is the birdhouses on the campground, whose inhabitants keep the mosquitoes somewhat in check. Bathhouses are pretty old but appeared clean. The Wi-Fi was an issue as it shut off once a day and we needed to walk to the office to get the server rebooted. This would be our place to stay again when on the OBX.

The name might raise expectations this campground does not deliver. But for us it was the perfect place to stay for a few nights to explore the New Bern area. For our 16$/night (PA-rate) we got a full hookup site with partial shade, (good) Wi-Fi and cable. Surprisingly quiet at night despite the location right off the road. The owner is very friendly. The campground is pretty much an open field with hookups side by side, so there is no privacy if you have neighbors. The moonlight lake is more a duck pond but the value for money is unbeatable. We don't need any amenities on a campground and if you think alike this is the place for you. We would definitely stay again when in the area.

Nice beach and state park but the campground is way overrated. Here is why we give it only a 5: (1) Inflexible staff. We had a reservation for two days, wanted to stay 4 days and had to move after two days despite several sites were vacant all the time. We asked to get on one of these sites but were turned down because of reservations. (2) We stayed over a weekend, the campground was filled with tent campers, burning all wood they could get and turning the campground in a kind of refugee camp. (3) Local airport is busier than you think, first departure is 5:30 am right over your site, so you don't need any kind of wake up call. WiFi only at the shop and the loop around it. The dump station was very good but only one for all the sites without sewer. We would not stay here again, we think there are better value for money options in the area.

We would not stay here again except in case of emergency. We thought this would be the perfect place for a night stopover before heading further north on the OBX. But right on arrival we were attacked by large mosquitoes and counted more than 10 bites while parking the trailer. The site was swampy with a grass cover, very unlevel and the electric hookup had no breaker. Access to the site from a public road (not very busy but still unacceptable to me). The village is quaint and easy to access from the campground. When leaving on the next morning it took me 10 minutes and a phone call to find somebody who would collect the rate. My overall impression is that this campground is meant for permanents and not for travellers.

The rate is PA for water and electric. We stayed here to explore Charleston and would stay again. It is surprisingly quiet at night except for one or two trains coming alongside. The staff is very friendly and helpful. I had to refill my propane and the bottle was delivered to my site while I was away. The sites have little shade and are arranged side by side without any privacy. This might be an issue when the campground is full. Wi-Fi is pretty good. It is far better than what we normally experience on campgrounds. Our main complaint is the very bumpy dirt and gravel road to the office and further into the campground. You have to drive really slow to keep your trailer's cargo intact. I can't comment on the restrooms and showers but landscaping and pool were very well maintained. Overall an excellent value for your money.

One of the best campgrounds we know of. You camp in a forest where Spanish moss hangs from the trees. Some sites are mostly sunny which is nice in winter and spring but later you appreciate all the shade you get. Sites are spacious and offer good privacy. No sewer on sites. What we like best is the 14 day stay limit, so you have no permanents camping here. Wi-Fi is only at the rangers office that's our reason for the 9 instead of a 10 rating. Staff is very friendly. It is very quiet at night. Comfort house 3 is new, the others are also clean and well maintained. The rate doesn't reflect the 5$ parking fee you have to pay once to enter the park. We'll come again for sure.

Our second stay but not as enjoyable as the first one. Despite the campground was half empty the staff made a big fuzz about available sites (we had a reservation for three days and asked for another site when checking in because we didn't like the soft dirt, the narrowness and location of our assigned site). Sites are all very shady as you are parking in a forest but are close together and offer little privacy. Mostly it's quiet except for some barking dogs (for hours) nobody seemed to care about. Another indicator for somewhat ignorant staff. A real nuisance was the amount of campfires pretty much all day. It was simply to much. The price you pay is fair for a full hookup site with cable and internet. Unfortunately there is no other campground on Jekyll Island. I think some competition would help this campground to improve quite a bit. However, Jekyll Island is a beautiful place to stay and we would come again.

Our second stay in the Palmetto Ridge loop. It is the new one in the park. Very spacious level sites with a fair amount of pull through sites and sewer at some sites. Very quiet at night with good privacy. If there were Wi-Fi at the site this would be a clear 10 rating. So you have to drive to the concession building about 4 miles away. One of the best campgrounds and state park we know of. We would stay here again.

Imagine waking up with the sound of the jungle (from the nearby zoo). The park layout is very generous, there is lots of space for everybody.

We stayed here in a second row, but this ocean view site is as far away from the noisy road as possible. The view was the best. The site was very unlevel with large, broken concrete patches. The whole place looks pretty run down, there was even a decaying rat beside the laundry. It was the first time we felt bothered by all the dogs. The staff is very friendly. Regarding value for money, the place is totally overpriced. We will never come again.

We camped on PALMETTO RIDGE. The site was spacious, level with full hookup, BBQ and firepit. This campground is pretty new, so showers and restrooms are new and cleaned every day. The sewer connection is a bit above ground. This is the best campground in all the state parks we visited. The park itself is great with lots to do, and the beaches are a short drive. Wi-Fi at the comfort houses would be great improvement. We will come in spring again.

The perfect place to stay for a few nights and visit the Kennedy Space Center. Located right off the Hwy1 you will get a pull-through site with full- hookup. No cable TV though. Wi-Fi was good. Sites are dirt and fairly level. Little privacy but not packed like sardines. The Hwy traffic dies down at night, so it's surprisingly quiet. We didn't use any facilities. Would stay again for one or two nights when the next launch is scheduled at KSC.

A very nice place to stay. You have to be careful if you drive a big rig though. The loops are narrow and have tight turns. We own a 34' 5th wheel and had a hard time backing into our assigned site. Walking around after I was done I spotted some sites which would have been much easier to get in. In fact some sites are very spacious. No trouble with low branches whatsoever. Anyway, we liked to stay here. Water and electric, no cable and Wi-Fi, but all people with laptops gathered at the beach grill to catch the Wi-Fi there. Sites offered good privacy, the bathrooms were clean and the traffic noise died down at night. We will come back in spring and stay again for a few days. Beautiful Spanish fort and historic district by the way.

If there is anything to complain about this park, it's the lack of privacy. Lots of shade (no surprise, you are in a forest). No traffic or any other noise at night. The sites (pull-through) are dirt, easy to level and offer good access to a full hookup including cable and a very reliable Wi-Fi. Easy to get in and out and once you've parked your rig you might want to get around with a bike on this very bike friendly island. Don't miss the butcher department in the small grocery store at the beachfront. We are somewhat picky with our shopping but everything this butcher offers is top quality at very reasonable prices. And please go and visit the Georgia sea turtle center - it's amazing. We adopted a sea turtle, what's your pet?

This review is about the riverside campground since the beach side was closed due to rebuilding of the comfort house. However we checked this site and found out we wouldn't be able to stay there. Our 5th wheel is 34' and there is no site at the beach campground to accommodate that length. The riverside is nestled far off in the woods and you should be very careful when driving around to find your site. Lots of low branches. In fact we were very lucky not to sheer off our A/C when backing into our site. The site offered water and electric, lots of privacy but no cable and no Wi-Fi (nowhere in the park). We expected a quiet night sleep but were very disappointed by a constant heavy industry noise caused by a nearby pulp mill and a port facility. The second night was a little better, probably due to different wind directions. The bathrooms were the best we've ever seen on a campground. Modern, luxurious and kept clean all the time. Overall if you are not to sensitive regarding noise at night and don't need Wi-Fi for your well being this might be a perfect spot for you. Since our needs are different we won't come back.

What a gem! Except for Wi-Fi (only at the office) and TV this park has it all. Far away from the highway, right behind the dunes of a beautiful beach. Most sites (like ours) are back in with electric and water. Three dump stations on the way out, you probably won't have to line up. Sites are gravel, well apart from each other. We didn't use any facilities, staying just for one night. We'll definitively return in springtime and spend more time.

We planned to stay just overnight but due to some repair on our tow truck we spent five nights. This campground is very run down, no improvements have been made since a long time. Considering what you pay it's a fair deal though. The sites are very shady, sand and dirt. They are not very level but have very good access to hookups. No TV, no WiFi. Most campers are permanents. We didn't use the bathrooms but a glimpse at the laundry facility was enough to know you better avoid the facilities. Despite the Highway to Carolina Beach it was quiet at night (except for the acorns falling on our roof). If you don't mind the shabby neighborhood it's an ok and cheap place to stay for one or two nights what we would do if in the area. Don't miss the battleship - it's spectacular!

Actually a good place to stay if you want to visit Charleston and avoid the KOA. A long and bumpy gravel road leads to check-in and further on to the campsites. Spacious sites, ok level but little privacy. Hookup access very good but no cable TV. Wi-Fi available but not very reliable. Except for some train noise pretty quiet during nighttime. We would stay again for one or two nights, but not for longer. Our rate reflects the PA discount.

What a beautiful park to stay. Literally surrounded by trees the sites are spacious and way apart from each other. Good level and good access to hookups (electric, water, TV-cable). Dump station on the way out. No Wi-Fi except at the entrance office, that's why we don't rate it a 10. But there are nice trails, bikes for rent, an interpretive site and very friendly and helpful rangers. We stayed two weeks in total and it was always quiet and pleasant (even on Labor day, when every site was occupied). Washrooms and showers were clean, a little dated though. It's a 20 minute drive to the Savannah historic district but only 3 minutes to a Krogers supermarket. We already look forward to coming back in November.

This one is special! Back to nature is what you get. A few miles off the interstate and off any other road you will experience how quiet a campground can be. The sites are dirt and fairly level, most are shaded by trees. Lots of space on the site and to the neighbors. We had electric and water hookup and used the dump station at the entrance. The way in and out is extremely bumpy, lots of deep potholes and one terrible negative speedbump, so you want to drive REALLY slowly. However, we made it without breaking any dishes and loved our stay here. The washrooms were very basic but appeared to be clean. Laundry was just fine, we didn't expect any for that cheap rate. We would love to find more campgrounds like this one for a stopover night.

We're glad to have discovered that place. Well away from any noisy roads but close to shopping. Lots of long-term campers what leaves little shaded sites to overnighters. We were lucky to get one with a huge tree providing some shade. Still the AC had a hard time to keep up with the summer heat. The site was a spacious gravel, fairly level one. Good access to the hookups. Very quiet day and night. We didn't use any facilities during our three night stay. Would stay here again.

Very friendly and welcoming staff. The sites are gravel and fairly leveled with good hookups. Wi-Fi was fine (we stayed right beside the office). Surprisingly quiet though the highway was close. The facilities looked well maintained but we didn't use any. Would come again for an overnight stay like this time, or for longer (but then would ask for a site in the back).

Very nice and quiet campground, well off the road. You just need to be prepared to handle a 1/4 mile of steep grade down to the lake. Lots of permanent campers but some sites available for overnighters. We stayed two nights in the very end of the park so we couldn't catch the Wi-Fi. The sites are spacious, fairly apart from the next one and have a concrete patch to place the wheels perfectly level. Super quiet at night and lots of shade throughout the day. Very friendly staff and everything looked well maintained. The only downside was the water which turned out to be very muddy and contained lots of silt. Unhooking on leaving day: we discovered our water filter to be totally clogged. I don't know if this is a permanent issue or was caused by a one time incident. Nevertheless, we're positive about staying here again. It's absolutely worth the money they are asking.

Quite a few turns to get here but you'll be rewarded with a very quiet campground! Sites are ok spacewise but the really big rigs should stay away because of the trees. (We had no problems with our 34' 5th wheel.) Trash pickup service every morning was nice. The hookups were in ok shape, while the picnic table should be replaced. Wi-Fi was good. We didn't use washrooms or shower. If you look for some quiet place and don't mind to drive a few miles to a shopping mall or museums, this KOA is for you. The posted rate is without KOA membership card.

This is NOT a KOA any more! When we checked in in the cramped and somewhat filthy office a sign reading: "Sorry, Mom's kitchen is closed." I couldn't help a sigh of relief. Nobody would like to eat anything cooked here. The campground is right beside the interstate and very, very noisy. Bring your earplugs! Some shade on the site, which was fairly spacious but unlevel. The impression from the office prevented us from checking any other facilities. Don't stay here except you desperately need to get off the road.

If there were water hookups and Wi-Fi, this would be a clear 10/10 rating. Nestled into a small forest on the lake and off the busy roads this is a very nice campground hosted by very friendly people. Lots of shade and spacious sites with some room to neighbors. We only stayed for one night but would consider to come again and stay longer. I can't comment on the facilities since we didn't use them. Driving carefully with our 34' 5th wheel I had no problems with the turns and branches, but I wouldn't go bigger in this park.

Luckily we caught an overcast day to stay here. No shade at all. Very basic campground, electric hookup only. But it's cheap. Stunning scenery. The sites are just pullouts off the loop through the campground but thus paved and level. Didn't use the facilities. Would stay again to see the night sky.

Pretty new campground close to interstate (but not noisy) and Casper with spacious sites, easy to get in (trees will grow). No speed bumps! Good place to stay overnight with full hook-ups, free cable TV and free Wi-Fi. The staff was very friendly.

Nice and shady site but there was more noise than expected from the road nearby. The Wi-Fi worked just in front of the office. We stayed here for one night; was good for a stopover.

Quiet location, spacious site with good hook-ups but very unlevel. The entrance is hard to find, gravel, dust, bumps and potholes. No hot water in the laundry and lawn mowing every day for no reason. We stayed here for 3 days, but next time we will stay at a state park.

The only good thing about this campground: the gorgeous view. It can accommodate big rigs but has no shade at all and the sites are totally unlevel and ugly. It is basically a field with hookups. Not worth the money. There was mowing every day. Never again.

There is no internet, no cell-phone, and no cable in Yellowstone NP but it is ok. There is lots to see. The campground has paved and level sites with full hookups close to neighbours but not uncomfortable. We stayed there in a 31' fifth-wheel for 5 days and will come again for sure.

This campground is located close to an interstate, a busy highway and a railroad. It is very noisy. The hookups are located in the back between two sites - hard to reach. The people were very friendly. We didn't use the facilities and stayed there for one night in our 31' fifth-wheel. Wouldn't come again.
