Older well-kept RV park. We were there for a rally and the staff was very friendly and helpful with area information and maps as well as check-in. They also closely monitored vehicles entering the park to keep nonresidents out, which we liked. They recommended several excellent eating establishments and the Cajun Woodstock music festival in a nearby community that we thoroughly enjoyed. The Wi-Fi service worked fine at our site. The sites were paved in the area we were in. You do need to watch for wandering ducks and their poop at the sites. There was filtered road noise but this was from both the freeway as well as the nearby very busy cross streets. Road noise was not a major concern to us. We would return if in that area.

This is a nice municipal owned RV park that is bare bones in that there is no pool, playground or Wi-Fi. The CATV was great and the host is super and the location was good for visits to Eureka Springs and the surrounding area. This park suited us well however the advertised Wi-Fi was not working. Supposedly it will be working by the time October comes around. Some of the sites are on fairly steep inclines around the perimeter as well as in the center strip of pull through sites so there were some big bumps to position your rig up off the pavement and onto the assigned site. The bathrooms and shower rooms were very nice and are accessible only with a code which is great for security purposes since this park is open to the public.

Nightly rate is $32.40 after the Good Same discount. This is a nice, very clean RV park however is close to the freeway although we haven't heard any noise from it. There is a train track quite near and we can hear that. The host is nice, the TV service has 24 channels but meets our needs, the restroom and showers are spotless although the shower heads should be lower and not splatter so much. There isn't much in this small town to see or do excellent Mammoth Cave or some of the others in the area. There is no playground or pool and I have seen no dogs or kids since we've arrived today.

Our rate was actually $27.90 with our Good Sam discount. This park served our needs well in that the sites are long and level and everything worked well for our overnight stay. The friendly hostess even called Lambert's Restuarant and had a shuttle come and get us for dinner. They also brought us back after we staggered out after eating their excellent fare. Don't miss it as this is a true experience only found here. The only negative in my book is that there is a lot of road noise from the highway that the park sits on so there is no sleeping in while here. The freeway noise was from about 200 to 300 yards away and wasn't a factor for us. We were situated near the front entrance so got the road noise full blast.

We were here for the second time in two years and were here at this time for a rally. The park owners were very helpful in getting this rally set up and treated everyone wonderfully. Their clubroom worked well for us and our group enjoyed the park. The facility remains one of the tops in my book. The shuttle service to the Branson shows is a special touch. Pull throughs are long and level. Each site has a concrete patio pad with picnic table. Wi-Fi and CATV worked very well and the on-premises cafe has great food and friendly service. We will return.

This park is a basic one that served our needs. The Wi-Fi and CATV worked great and the site was level and long enough for our rig. The host was very nice. There was some road noise but it didn't bother us. No pool or playground is available for kids. The restroom facilities were extremely clean and smelled of Clorox daily. The south facing restroom/shower combo rooms are not air conditioned so were unusable during the 100 plus degree days we were there as they were too hot and humid to even consider using as showers, even at night.

Ditto other reviews in that this is an excellent place to overnight. The restrooms are beautiful and very clean. Sites are extra long concrete pads, the host friendly, even the shuttle bus driver was very friendly. Wi-Fi and CATV worked just fine for us and we have no complaints about the park itself even though it had lots of concrete surfaces. There was a playground for children and the pool was sufficient. Food at the buffet in the casino was average at best except the guacamole at the Mexican food table was delicious and merited a second helping. We will definitely stay here again on other trips.

Rate reflects guest rate. This campground hasn't improved over the past 2 years since our last visit. Our grassy site was roomy and easy to get into however it was full of sticker burrs and was literally underwater after heavy rains over Saturday night. The site turned into a mud pit. The staff is friendly and helpful however the Wi-Fi at no time worked and there absolutely is no cable TV for the RV sites. Kitchen facilities needed a good cleaning as did the restrooms that I saw. The grounds are in a park-like setting and there is a nice walking trail. Excellent place to go unwind from city stresses if you know what you are getting in to.

Rate above reflects Good Sam discount. This park continues to get a 10 rating from me however their WiFi system was quite slow most of the three days we were here on this stay. They have themed weekends for the entire family, so check their website if this is of interest. They are actually located in The Woodlands even though the address is Spring. The Rayford/Sawdust exit off I-45 is the southernmost exit for The Woodlands and there are numerous restaurants and lots of shopping available one exit to the north.

This is a Passport America rate. They are also Good Sam members. This is an excellent, well designed and maintained park that suits our needs well. The owners as well as all camp workers are all super nice. Restrooms are all super clean however the ones in the office building are inaccessible after 9 pm each night. The CATV and WiFi work very well. The owners live onsite and take pride in their park. There is some train whistle noise which occurs mainly at night, however in this town train whistle noise reaches everywhere. This is the only park in town with a security gate.

We were here for a rally. This is an exceptionally nice RV park that is well designed and has some of the cleanest restrooms we've seen anywhere. The rec rooms suited our purposes very well and the staff is nice. The CATV and WiFi systems worked well for us. The negatives are that there is lots of freeway noise at all hours of the day and night and the location is quite some distance from shopping.

This is a Passport America park as reflected in the rate we paid. We really enjoyed staying here. Its clean, well designed and had the amenities we like to see. Staffers were friendly and helpful. Restrooms and showers were very clean. It has great WiFi and CATV systems. There was no pool or playground that we saw. There is a onsite Mexican food restaurant that we enjoyed. We used their free shuttle to the shows. We will definitely return.

This campground is on the grounds of the state fair and is large and quite nice although the restrooms are typical public restrooms designed for massive use. They weren't especially clean but were useable. The campgrounds were very clean and had either paved interior roads and either grass or paved sites. The work campers were super nice and helpful. The WiFi signal came and went on us depending on who was parked next to us. There was some distant train noise but all told it was actually pretty quiet at this RV park. We were on the hilly grassy area but will select the paved flat parking lot on our next visit. This is a convenient place from which one can explore the city and all it offers.

This is a Passport America park that is very popular with locals as there are mature trees and several lakes for fishing or swimming plus themed activities for kids and adults. Families come here for generations from what we were told. Interior roads are dirt/gravel and the sites were mainly grass. Some sites are very unlevel. We were near the office so had a back-in site with FHU and a decent WiFi signal. The owners are extremely nice and very helpful. The grounds in no way compare to modern RV parks we are accustomed to. Showers and restrooms need major work and cleaning.

This was a one night stop for us. The WiFi they supposedly had did not work and no one was here who could reboot the system. This park seems well designed and laid out and is on a lake that used to be rock quarry. The grounds are quite nice, although their entrance sign needs to be repositioned. Call ahead for instructions or else you might miss the turn. It has gravel roads, level sites, FHU, and many permanent residents. The onsite restaurant seems popular with the locals. Restrooms were frigid with no heat, served their purpose but were not inviting in any sense.

This is an attractive and well designed RV park but some of the sites are too closely spaced. If all the interior roads and sites were paved it would get a "10" from me. They came through on everything they advertise with good CATV and very fast WiFi, clean, secure showers/restrooms and affordable laundry. There is a pool and playground for kids although the pool was closed for the winter when we were here. All staffers we met were friendly, professional and very helpful. It is quiet here at all times of the day and they have trees as well as clear sites. They place transient campers apart from their seasonal crowd. This is a good location to explore the area and we'd definitely return even though we felt the price was a bit high.

We paid $25 per night which was supposed to be the Passport America rate according to the woman at the front desk. I suspect that the rate changes given the time of day. This is a huge parking lot style RV park with very fast WiFi and a good CATV system and no personality. The grounds were clean and quiet. The only restroom facilities were near the rear of the property. There wasn't much noise from roadways or the nearby go cart speedway as it was past the "season".

This is a nice clean campground that has an 8 station cable TV system and a very good WiFi system. Restrooms are clean. Interior roads are caliche and sites are mainly grass. When it rains there are pretty large puddles so make sure you park in a site that appears high and dry. Its a central location to explore the Door County peninsula.

We stayed here 3 nights over the Labor Day weekend because they had room. Its a typical casino paved parking lot with level FHU sites along one edge. They had good cable TV but no WiFi. We were told when we asked well in advance about it that they had WiFi. There is no WiFi service to the campground. It is only available in the hotel itself. Everything was very clean.

This is a well designed park with extremely clean restrooms, good CATV, clean grounds and a friendly office staff. However if you want WiFi service be sure to get a site near the office. The signal does not reach the edges of the park even though the office staff insists it does. We were told by the very nice office manager that the problem must be our pc. We used Passport America and Good Sam and our 4 night stay came to $124.76.

We were here for four nights. The first two nights were near the very busy highway and cost $20. The next two nights were at a lakeside site and cost $25 per night. The lakeside location was much quieter. This is a beautifully situation park however lacks sewer connections and some sites are without any utilities. There are lots of tent sites both with and without utilities. There is a very long albeit narrow sandy beach you can walk upon at any time of day. There is a pump station. The restrooms were relatively clean given that sand was being tracked in constantly by heavy traffic. The older restroom/shower facility was closest to the beach and had very heavy use. It did however have four locked door unisex shower rooms which seemed to be in use constantly by the teenagers camping in tents. There is a newer facility by the highway that has fewer number of toilets and showers and uses only shower curtains. The staff cleans and mops daily but can't make headway. Its best to come here in a self contained unit if that type thing is important to you. There are lots of fire rings in use here. The Wi-Fi signal is excellent if you are fairly near to the office area because they were having technical difficulties while we were there. Just ask the manager. That said, we'd definitely come back here as its very scenic, has great sunsets over the lake and is a great base to tour this section of Michigan.

Stayed here 2 nights. We got lucky and had a site right on the water of South Bay with Electric and Water hookups and we enjoyed it very much. There are no Sewer hookups but is a dump site plus a clean out service. They have a few cottages and cabins with housekeeping. Wi-Fi signal is strong in the a hotspot at the office area and it only will reach some of the cabins and sites nearby. The owners urge you to come in and use the signal or you can sit on the deck or even in a car. Roads and sites inside the campground are sand or gravel. We had no trouble negotiating them with our rig. Some sites have grass and most have fire rings. Water in the bay at this spot is quite shallow so there is a lot of swimming and wading. They rent boats and canoes here. The owner/operators are very friendly and helpful about everything we asked. The major downfall is that the restroom/shower building needs to be rebuild and modernized. The roof line is sagging and the floors will never ever be clean again even though they try hard and mop daily with Clorox water. This campground is actually about a 1 minute drive from the ferry terminal in South Baymouth so its very convenient in that regards. Its quite dark at night so would be great for star watching if the skies were clear. We would return.

We stayed here 4 nights and loved this park even though the winds blew like crazy for part of the stay. The back-in sites next to the road have fantastic views of Lake Michigan's blue waters. There is a road between the water and the park. It's a pet friendly adult park in that there are no amenities for kids and that suited us just fine. They could improve the park by adding cable TV, but we've seen that not many RV parks in this region have cable service. We did pick up about 8 channels with our trailer antenna. We would certainly camp here again. Shuttle service for the ferries for Mackinac Island came right into the park to pick up passengers. The owners/operators were both very friendly and knowledgeable of the area.

This park delivers on all the basics plus has a nice pool area. The grounds are attractive and clean, and the owner and hostess are very friendly. Restrooms and showers were clean. Cable TV was great, and the wi-fi worked very well for us in our site. Not all sites receive the signal so you must ask about it. Propane is sold here at a reasonable rate. This was our second stay, and we would return again.

We spent 3 nights here while seeing the sights of Niagara Falls from the Ontario side. It's a good park in that it has everything you could think of including a restaurant and a separate ice cream bar out by the pool and water splash area. The staff was helpful and tried to keep the restrooms clean, but there was a crush of people using them so they barely kept ahead of the mess. The main downfall we saw was the road noise from Lundy Lane traffic since our site backed up to the road. The air conditioner helped drown out that noise for us at night. The shuttle bus service was punctual and it stopped right in front of the office area. We used the bus service for visiting the Falls as parking is quite expensive.

Good Sam rate was $35.60 including tax. We spent one night here and were very pleased with the campground. We had a backin site with full hookups and we picked up the WiFi signal very well. There is no cable TV and doubtful air coverage. We loved this area as its very scenic. The town sits on a beautiful lake. The marina was pretty as were the two waterfalls we drove to see. The white sand beach is worth the drive as it was the first one we'd seen on Lake Superior that was really white sand. The owner/operator was very friendly and the heated swimming pool had beautiful tile work on it. Showers and restrooms are in one large building in the center of the campground. Showers are secure individual unisex rooms and there were about eight of them. If in this area be sure to go see the Big Goose at the visitor center on the hill. We'd return if in that area.

We spent two nights here so we could visit the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, which was actually quite near this park. We felt very comfortable and secure at this mature and very well kept park. They have only over the air TV, but everything else was top notch. The showers are private and secure unisex ones and were very clean. The Staff was exceptionally friendly and helped to find us a quiet spot away from all the children since its a family friendly park with very nice play areas. They have themed weekend activities for the children if that's important to anyone. If you stop here, drive south on Hwy 44 to Thompsons Dairyland for meals and ice cream desserts. We had all 3 meals here during our quick two day stay and were quite pleased with the quality and price. WiFi was $2.95 per day extra charge. You also pay a refundable $10 deposit for a card key for the entry gate. We would definitely stay here again if in the area.

We paid $98 for 4 nights, of which 2 nights were 50% off due to being Passport America and $2 per night extra charge for cable TV. This park met our needs with clean restrooms, cable TV and WiFi that is fast. The sites are plenty long, however they are quite narrow. There is no laundry on site, however the owner and his wife are super nice and yes he's a character and does carry a sidearm. Park is 1 block off the main street and easily within walking distance to almost everything in town. That is its main draw. A few of the sites on the West side of the park have partial afternoon shade. This is a very quiet park.

Rate reflects weekly and/or senior rate. We spent 9 days here and enjoyed the time. The staff is friendly and helpful, and the seasonal campers are a friendly bunch. There is a solid high speed wi-fi hotspot in the rec hall but not at each site. You must have a satellite dish if you want TV, and there is no cell phone signal here for any major service. You can buy calling cards and use their complimentary telephone for long distance calls. The restrooms are in a separate building from the rec hall. There are music jam sessions almost every weekend and friendly games by the many seasonal campers. We would return. Part of the charm here is the altitude of 9200 which may be a negative for some people with certain health or breathing problems.

We were here for 3 nights. Everything said in the previous reviews is true. This is an extremely well done RV park designed for big rigs. All the facilities are new and well done and they have 2 separate meeting rooms. The only improvement would be cable or satellite TV at each site. That said, satellite TV is available on a big screen TV in their Activities Room and anyone can use it. We would certainly return.

Excellent RV park for an overnight stay. Nice, new, clean and everything works just fine. The owners are very cordial and professional. The only problem is the road noise. We opted to stay here rather than any other park thinking it would be quieter than a nearby freeway. We guessed wrong. Truck noise was quite loud all hours day and night.

An excellent place for an overnight stay. Its near the Ameristar Casino and there is a shuttle that circulates between casino, hotel and RV park. All amenities were great, even the laundry. They even gave us a coupon good for free breakfast. We would definitely stay here again.

This park is relatively new and has excellent facilities and a friendly and competent staff. The shower facilities are among the best we've ever seen. I just wonder why anyone would spend money to develop a new RV park near the flight patterns of any airport. FedEx planes take off from Memphis' airport near the park and some go over in the landing patterns which is even louder. Therefore if airplane noise bothers you, keep on going down the road further south. We turned on the A/C unit and that allowed us to sleep in peace. I am rating this park down for that and that alone as its just perfect otherwise.

This is a repeat stay for us at this park. Wi-Fi was not working. Park staff blamed it on Comcast however their router wasn't even broadcasting a signal. It was raining when we arrived and there was a lot of running water in the park. Some of the sites are uneven. Doubt that we'd go back after this experience.

This is a repeat stay for us. This remains one of the better RV parks we've seen and is the best value we've seen however the restrooms need attention. The bathroom floors are looking dirty all the time and the toilets weren't always cleaned. We know because we followed the cleaning lady into two of them. We didn't see the owner this time so were unable to tell him this. That said, we would give Oasis another try as long as they continue their special stimulus rates.

This is a wonderful park in that its off the main drag so is quiet at all times, has lots of green grass, has a lake, has nicely packed and smooth interior roads and level pads. It also has a concrete patio pad plus table and chairs or gazebo type swing with bbq pit and fire ring. Waterfront sites cost alittle more than the others but are worth it because the small lake is very picturesque and its fountain is hypnotic to watch and listen to. Upon pulling in we immediately decided to extend our stay because its so relaxing to be here. There are many subtle decorative touches. We would definitely return here. Nightly rate of $27.88 reflects tax and our Good Sam discount.

We stopped here 2 years ago so know nothing has happened to improve this place. The interior roads are half gravel and half deteriorating asphalt and are very rough. The Wi-Fi didn't work although they profess to have it. For the price they charge the amenities they advertise should be in place and working. We will not return here again and infact have routed the trip home to bypass this place.

This was a overnight stop. The park itself is immaculate and the office staff/owner extremely friendly. The park delivers on all it advertises however we couldn't ignore road noise which was constant and quite loud all day and night. We opted for this park over others in town hoping to get away from freeway traffic noise but it didn't work out. Nightly rate of $24.75 above reflects our Good Sam discount.

We were here 3 nights to visit the Dam and see the area. Campground owner/operators were both super nice and helpful. This is an immaculate campground and the owners are very visible. The showers/restrooms and small laundry were spotless. The cable TV and Wi-Fi worked well and it was quiet here at night however noise from trucks on the nearby road got going about 6:30 am each day. We didn't find it to be especially dusty here and enjoyed our stay.

Stayed here two nights so we could tour historic downtown Cheyenne. We found the sites to be adequate in this RV park contrary to earlier reviews. They have two sections now and seem to be well laid out. If you want a Wi-Fi signal be sure to tell them upon check-in or you might be out of luck even though they have signals from two sites. There is a onsite BBQ stand that is pretty popular. Cable TV and Wi-Fi worked very well for us. It's nice and quiet at this park. If the interior roads and pads were paved it would be perfect. There are two houses with laundries and restroom/showers and the park has free telephone service for local and long distance calling which we thought was a nice touch. Office staff and all work campers have been very nice. Nightly rate of $30 is after our Good Sam discount and tax added in.

Another overnight stop for us. Price above reflects our Good Sam discount. This park delivers on all it advertises however there is excessive noise from the nearby and very busy railroad tracks. There is also a dim roar from the nearby freeway but the trains drowned it out. The interior roads were gravel as were the pads. The public areas and shower/restrooms were clean and had coded exterior locks which we liked. Doubtful if we'd ever return due to noise. The owner and her Dad (2nd and 3rd generation owner/operators) were very nice to deal with.

We spent 2 nights here and loved this park. The owner/operator is one of the friendliest we've met anywhere. The park is very attractive and has a stream running through it. The resident exotic chickens were fun. Wi-Fi and cable TV worked extremely well and the park was very quiet. There is a newly redesigned laundry and that plus the restroom/showers were spotless. If it had paved interior roads and pads it would be perfect for our needs. As it is, we will return here as there are many attractions to be seen in this section of the state.

Another overnight stop for us. This is an excellent RV park that may be 3 years old. It is of a modern park: having ample pad spacing and size, plus well designed, paved interior roads. Everything worked very well and the grounds are beautiful with many landscaping elements featuring lots of colorful flowers. Some places can be dark at night if the solar lighting starts fading. There is a nearby train track but it must be a spur because we noticed no train noise.

This is a secluded campground deep in a heavily treed mountain valley where two rivers join. There are two train tracks: one in the river valley and one up on the rim, 500 feet straight up. We heard the trains but they weren't a disruption for us. There is a Wi-Fi hotspot up by the office if you really need to get online. We pulled in 4 PBS type TV stations with our antenna. The interior roads and pads are gravel. Pull through sites were extremely long in the section we were in. The rivers are great and it was pretty quiet and mostly empty when we were there. The drive in and out was ok for us with our rig. It is a steep grade on gravel and there are several switchback turns and one of them is rough on the inside corner so beware of this. If in doubt, call and talk to them about your rig size. The lady in the office we dealt with was super nice.

We overnighted here and above rate is a guess. This is a super nice park with paved interior roads and pads that are nicely spaced however they have joined KOA. They will give Good Sam discounts through the end of the year. There are small children riding through the place on bicycles and my husband saw one narrow miss times 2. Be aware of this if you stop here. The noise from the nearby freeway is a constant roar so be prepared. They do have a indoor swimming pool and lots of helpers in the office. The Wi-Fi and cable TV worked very well for us. I doubt we would ever go back here.

Stayed here over Labor Day weekend. The office people were friendly and helpful. We had a site near the office to ensure good Wi-Fi signals which was great however it also let all the highway noise drift over us. US 101 is a very busy highway normally and holiday traffic is unreal. The tent campers are in a different section of the park which is good as they tended to make the restroom/showers busy and dirty. The cable TV worked very well. All in all it was a positive experience and the resort town of Seaside is a delightful place to visit. Price of $35 is with our Good Sam discount.

We overnighted here and enjoyed it. The buildings are in a Swiss style and the sites are terraced up a hill under tall pine trees. Interior roads and sites are gravel. The work camper was super nice. It was very quiet even though its pretty close to the busy Trans-Canada Highway 1. This park is 3 miles north of Boston Bar. The cable TV and Wi-Fi worked very well. There was ample room for all size rigs to maneuver. There is an adjacent motel and restaurant where we got good food for dinner. The rate of $27 reflects our Good Sam discount. We would certainly return.

The rate above is actually $27.90 after our Good Sam discount. This park delivers on all its advertised amenities and the staff is very friendly. The restroom/showers and laundry were very clean. They have a rather large activity building which is available for rallies. The only thing they could do to improve is to have paved interior drives and pads. It's well organized and has the tent sites totally separate from the RV sites. We've seen deer each evening in a meadow across from our site. There are trees scattered throughout the park but the RV pads are not heavily shaded. The tent sites are in a heavily wooded area.

We spent 4 nights here and loved it. Yes the grass isn't green in all places and the power is above ground on poles but everything worked fine, especially the satellite TV and Wi-Fi. I did not need tokens for the showers and there was plenty of hot water. Don't know where previous camper got their info on this. The laundry was adequate and everything I saw was nice and clean. The view is spectacular of Sequim Bay and the park next to the Marina. You can walk over to the marina and sit at one of many benches and tables to watch people, animals or birds. We felt it was very quiet at night which is when it matters to us. The people there as well as the management were all friendly and knowledgeable. Interior roads are gravel as are most of the sites. There is no pool.

This was a pleasant place to stay. No shade trees but we prefer it that way and the sites were plenty long and very level. We got several TV stations on their satellite system. Wi-Fi is up in the main building only but there are multiple places to set your PC at either standing or sitting including in the laundry room where you can plug into a power strip and I believe hard wire into their line. This is a neat as a pin type place and we would return. The Sign Post Forest and the Northern Lights Center are both in easy walking distance. Price cited is actually $27.25 a night with our Good Sam discount.

This campground is much larger than it appears from the highway and it has good amenities including satellite tv. Sites are plenty long and most are level. Restrooms are locked and clean and the laundry is quite large. They have live entertainment several nights a week that is very amusing. You have to pay extra for Wi-Fi service and its pretty high so we didn't use it. The air was very smoky from forest fires near Fairbanks. It was uncomfortable for both of us so if this is an issue check out conditions before planning travel. We actually paid $37.80 a night with our Good Sam discount.

I agree with the previous reviewer. This park is a large gravel parking lot behind a hotel however the spacing is adequate for our purpose. The sites are fairly level and the Wi-Fi works well if you are close to the office. We are picking up 10 TV channels via the antenna. Its surprisingly quiet here even though the highway is nearby. The restrooms are spotless and the laundry room also neat and clean. The owner wasn't on site nor available via telephone when we registered and paid the next morning once he was back. He has been very cordial since he returned. A key is needed for the Ladies Restroom but not for the Men. All told, we have a favorable impression even though this place isn't real pretty to look at.

Excellent Park that delivers on all it advertises. Restrooms are secure ones and they as well as laundry room are the cleanest I've ever seen. They even sweep the rocks off the street back into the park and were repainting signs while we were there. The park is well organized and has wide interior drives. The staffers are all friendly and knowledgeable. There is a nice gift shop. Above price is a weekly rate divided by 7. The longer you stay the lower the price. We would certainly return. Sat TV and Wi-F work well. The only drawback is road noise on both sides of the park.

One of the best parks we've seen during a long summer trip. There was minimal road noise from the busy Alaska Highway. The park delivered on everything and even have an effective RV/car wash on site that has a real pressure washer that works. Everything was neat and clean both on the grounds and in laundry and restroom/washroom areas. They have a nice gift shop plus ATM in the office area. Staff was friendly and responsive. We would certainly return. Good Sam discounted price is $29.70 nightly.

We stopped here in mid June and again in mid August. This campground is OK with pull through sites for big rigs and even some back ends for the big rigs. The Wi-Fi signal didn't reach us at site #13 for some reason all tho the limited satellite TV worked well. Scenic views of beaver pond, lake with evening/morning moose visits and mountains make this campground very worthwhile. The cafe is popular with locals and travelers.

Rate paid reflects a stimulus discount they have this year and this is the complete rate with all the taxes/fees. Our site is level and plenty long. There is plenty of room for even big rigs to maneuver. Satellite TV has over 100 channels plus all the music channels and it worked very well with their receiver. Wi-Fi works very well. The four bathrooms are individual uni-sex rooms which have both shower/toilet in them. Owners' family lives on site and there is playground equipment available. Office area is closed from 10 pm to 8 am so the toilets are closed then. The laundry room has 6 washers and 5 dryers. They have a comp breakfast daily and also sell some groceries plus soft serve ice cream in their combo office, dining room/bar area. They offer the best amenities of all the campgrounds in the area from what we saw and we did drive-bys on all the others. Its not the most scenic but we are glad we chose it.

This rate reflects that we paid for a week not a single day so its discounted. We loved the beautiful setting (campground overlooks muskeg with Cook Inlet and Mt. Redoubt in the background), loved the very congenial staff, and the small park atmosphere however I'm giving it a 7 rating for comparison purposes. There is no cable tv or antenna tv either; the WiFi doesn't extend to all the rigs; you must be fairly close to the office area to receive it but it is high speed. The laundry room has 1 washer and 1 dryer only. There is one woman's and one men's toilet/shower combination room that does lock securely however someone showering blocks toilet use for others. They have side by side hookups on some sites so beware. They do provide free firewood for campfires and each site has a campfire ring so you may have smoke whether you want it or not. That said, we would return for the views alone. Also, the constant bald eagle watching was cheap entertainment. This peaceful location is very convenient for multiple visits to Homer.

This is to update prior reports. This is a nice park with large chunks of gravel for interior roads as well as the sites. The park delivers on all it's advertised for. The staff is super nice, the park is nice and neat. Their cable TV delivers 8 channels like TBS, TNT, USA, Discovery, CNN, Fox News, etc and you can pickup MSM out of Anchorage via trailer antenna but it's very fuzzy. WiFi works very well and showers and toilet areas are extremely clean. The pay showers are private unisex rooms and for $2 you get 8 minutes of water. They offer charter fishing for either halibut/cod or salmon right here in the park. Its just far enough off the highway so there's not much road noise. There is not an ocean view. The food on Ninilchik beach at The Boardwalk Cafe is good and the view of volcanoes across Cook Inlet is terrific. If you want to extend your stay as we did, they bend over backward to work with you. We'd return.

We overnighted here. Its a pretty setting, in a meadow with horses and a stream nearby. Washrooms and showers were spotless and shower rooms had locked stalls. The WiFi and Cable TV worked well for us. We felt the layout of the entire park was well thought out. The interior roads and sites were gravel and our pull through site was level. It was a nice, quiet location even though it was fairly near the highway.

We were here for 2 nights. The sites were large enough for most rigs to park plus park their pull vehicle beside them. Gravel interior roads and sites with some grass at some sites. Combo restroom and shower rooms were very clean. They did require tokens (purchased at the office) for showers. Staffers were friendly and very knowledgeable about the area. Cable TV and WiFi worked very well. The truck noise from the highway did get loud at times but didn't keep us awake at night.

We intended to stay a week but extended due to a hospitalization of one of our party. Staff is friendly and very helpful and we had no trouble extending the stay. The WiFi and cable TV worked great; laundry was clean and had numerous washers and dryers. The shower rooms (about 10 individual rooms), laundry house and mens and ladies toilets were all locked and keyed to the same key that you paid a refundable $5.00 deposit on when checking in. All were extremely clean. They have a rather large rec hall and patio area fronting the Chena River which is nice to visit. It has gravel drives and sites with grass between them and there is ample room between all the sites and we saw some extremely large coaches in there that seemed to negotiate everything very well. It is located equidistant between Fairbanks and North Pole and has very very little road noise although there is an occasional aircraft flying overhead.

This park is actually named Ross H. Maclean Rotary RV Park and its actually located just west of Fort St. John on the grounds of Charlie's Lake Park. Its a neat little park but has very few full hookups. Its showers and toilets were immaculate but you needed coins for shower stall water. Their wifi worked very well. One cannot see the lake from here due to a berm. The drives and sites were gravel and everything here was very level. There was noisy road work underway on the highway so it got quite noisy early in the morning. We felt $30 was too pricey for an electric only site. The park was perhaps one tenth full.

This is a beautiful mountainside park that has easy in and easy out access. Interior roads are paved but the sites are gravel. All sites are parallel parking type pull throughs, which we really liked. We had a lovely view of the mountain across the valley. Restrooms were the cleanest we've ever seen in a state or national park. We saw elk and coyotes plus prairie dogs in the park. Its just a short drive to downtown Banff from here.

Another overnight stay for us. This park is acceptable and has gravel drives and sites. Sites were level but not long enough for some of the really long 5th wheel rigs. The showers and toilets were clean considering it was pretty wet and muddy when we were there. The two staffers we dealt with super nice. They have free coffee and donuts in the office in the mornings. They have an internet connected computer for all to use and you can hard wire connect your laptop if you like. We'd return if in the area.

We overnighted here and it's fine for that, especially since its the only park in the area. There are electric and water hookups only. Its a gravel drive and site type park and in June the lake was flodding out all the lake front tent camping sites. The showers and toilet areas were acceptably clean. The restuarant attached to the motel had good and reasonably priced food. Lots of locals ate there. Its the only cafe/diner in the small community. Their WiFi worked well for us.

I echo all other earlier remarks but must say the road noise is bothersome and there are no lights at night in this campground. The showers and restrooms were spotless and had privacy doors on all units. There are gravel roads and pull through sites with nice green grass and picnic tables for each site. The WiFi worked well for us although it did go down a couple of times. The big plus in addition to their location, is the wonderful manager and work camper type staff. All were efficient, very friendly and shared their knowledge of the area with us during our week long stay. The TV reception was abmysmal as we got one HGTV broadcast channel sporadically and nothing else at all via air waves.

We intended this to be an over night but ended up staying 5 nights because our travel buddies had vehicle problems. We really enjoyed the stay and visiting the surrounding area in spite of the circumstances. The campground is rimmed by snow covered mountains on three sides. Its a pretty campground with lots of grass, trees, blooming bushes, playground, 4 cabins, tent spaces, doggie run, a rec room and a lounge area but there is no cable tv in it or at sites. The pool was not open yet though. The shower/bathroom was immaculate and newly decorated with attractive tiles. They have no locked doors for showers; only shower curtains. Toilets are securely locked. All work campers were cordial and helpful with info on the area. The Interior roads are gravel; some sites are gravel, others are grass. We would return as we love this region. They do not have weekly rates, only daily rates, and their stated daily rate is $35.

We made a quick overnight stop here and this park suited that purpose just fine. Although right on a busy highway there was minimal road noise. There are gravel interior roads. The sites were level and gravel with grass and tables beside each. The showers and laundry were spotless. They have a beautiful hedge of full blooming lilac bushes. The big negative is there is no security for entering or exiting the park and the bathhouse has no locks on any doors and just shower curtains inside for both shower stalls as well as toilets.

This is a good campground for short or long stays. Even though we were here on the shoulder of the season and the pool isn't open, everything else works great and the grounds are neat. The showers/restrooms are spotless but cold because there is no heat that we could see. Only improvement we can see is if they pave the interior roads and have the site pads paved. That said the caliche roads and pads are completely acceptable to us. There is lots of grass, good shade trees, a babbling brook running through the grounds and lots of space to exercise your dogs. There is a small playground as well as a jogging recreational trail right behind the park. Its a pretty setting. Even though this park is located in a narrow valley right next to the highway, the road noise is non-existent at night. We would return. Price above is off season discounted and we paid $19.50 per night pre-tax.

The owner is one of the most congenial and helpful owner/operators we've met. He truly wants you to be a happy camper. Very helpful. All amenities are good except the bathrooms, although spotless, really need to be modernized. Interior roads and site pads are crushed rock and they are constantly grading the roads and sites or mowing the grass to ensure that the grounds are well groomed and neat. This park is off the freeway far enough so there is no road noise. The railroad tracks are not visible at all but you can hear the train noise from time to time. That, however, goes with the territory in this part of the state and wasn't a factor for us. We would return here. Price above is for a week's stay.

We overnighted here and it served our purpose admirably. The owner is super nice and goes out of her way to get you situated in a suitable site. She helped us locate some particular services in the town of Oakley and even made a phone call for us. The only improvements we could see would be to pave the sites and interior roads and to provide cable or satellite tv. We never use swimming pools or hot tubs/spas even if they are provided. There was remarkably little highway noise even though it is near a freeway and a very busy highway. There is a playground for kids. The trees we saw didn't provide much of shade. The entire campground was very well groomed and extremely neat and tidy. The owner has making improvements since she took it over and is doing well.

This is one of the best rv parks we've been in. The personable owner/operator checked us in. Yes its flat with no shade trees but there is green manicured grass, and the sites and interior roads are paved. There are 4 shower/laundry combo buildings with 4 free washers and 4 free dryers in each building. This is a special promo because they want to build up business. They also have specially reduced prices to build up business. Its a fairly new park and you can tell the owner is oriented to travellers who want clean showers/toilets, high speed wifi and excellent cable tv. Its quiet with little to no freeway noise. We would return.

We spent a month here based on friends' recommendation. We enjoyed the time here as its a friendly place to be. Its out in a rural area on the Arroyo Colorado River, has boat docks for fishermen who keep boats in the water. They can easily go out into the bay for salt water fishing. The sites are nice and long but rather narrow however the very congenial manager spaces trailers every other site, if possible. There is a new rec hall with very nice, tiled restrooms, shower, exercise room and kitchen facilities. There is a very active social life here among the "snowbirds" and retired Texans. Its a 45 minute drive to South Padre Island and all its attractions, a 30 minute drive into Harlingen for shopping and 25 minutes into San Benito to the closest Walmart. There are numerous activities within a 2 hour drive westward where winter Texans abound. You need satellite TV to get anything but four basic TV channels over the air waves. The WiFi worked well for us. It's very dark most nights so great for starwatchers. It's very quiet here at night. The Park Owners are super nice as is the great manager, who lives there. Just be careful of the sticker burrs in your trailers or on your pets!

We spent 4 nights here. We did not check out modem hookups or telephone hookup but did check everything else including their club house which is an older house complete with kitchen, restrooms, game room, etc. This is an older park but well kept and we enjoyed out stay. The TV service was good and the high speed Wi-Fi worked well for us. The restroom is recently remodeled, all tile, clean and outer doors has a coded lock. Laundry room was well equipped with 12 washers and dryers that all worked. Pool and hot tub looked nice but we didn't use them. One major improvement would be paving of individual pads. Interior roads are paved and newest sites being built have concrete pads. This is the last park in Rockport, on the left. The only store we saw in walking distance was a Dollar Store. The staff we interacted with were all friendly.

Convenient campground with easy on/off freeway access at exit 184 of I-20. The sites are gravel/rock and are very level however some are very close together. Owners live onsite and are very helpful and responsive. They have a good high speed WiFi signal and a great Cable TV lineup. There is no meeting room or pool. The laundry room is open 24/7 and is very clean with new machines. The restrooms are clean and have coded locks on them so are quite secure. This park has considerable road noise from I-20 but we dealt with it by using the Air Conditioner. We feel its the best in the area and would use it again if in the area.

Great mountain park, well run by friendly owners who are very responsive. WiFi works great and they have an excellent cable TV lineup. The folks here are religious and invite you to attend but there is no pressure at all. This place fills up in the summer mainly with senior citizen Texans escaping the summer heat. There is no pool, no meeting "room" and no cell service unless you buy a trucker's antennae and set up a special connection. Verizon signals do come through at the top of the main drive which is up on a small hill next to Highway 130. There is a small creek next to it called Rio Penasco where you can fish. There is an open air covered pavilion complete with stage and kitchen facilities where everyone congregates for the many summer activities. We went for 2 weeks and stayed a full month. Its a good central location for day trips of an hour in any direction. Would definitely return. Weekly rate is $100 and Monthly rate is $240. The Laundry Room has a game table where nightly card or domino games are played once the weather turns cooler. Propane is available at a competitive price. As others have said, there is no full fledged grocery store until you get to either Alamogordo or else Artesia.

This park provides the basics, however it is located on a very busy highway and its very noisy, at all hours of the day and night. The restroom/shower combination rooms were clean but it was easy to drip water on the floor due to short shower curtains. Office staff was very helpful upon check-in and again when we extended. The cable TV and WiFi service worked well for us. Note to all: to receive Cable TV service you must park in a back-in site. We paid the Winter rate due to time of year.

This is a green, shady state park on the South Llano river. A virtual oasis in the hot desert region located on the border between Central and West Texas. There is no TV, no Wi-Fi, no sewer and only minimal cell phone service. There is plenty of wildlife both near the camp sites and in the turkey roosting areas down by the river. There are plenty of hiking trails, and you can find one to suit the length of time you want to spend walking. You can rent tubes for floating on the river. It's a completely restful place. They fill up on weekends so call ahead to get your name on their list. About half the sites have shelters over the picnic tables so look for them if that's important to you. All picnic tables are on concrete pads. Interior roads are all paved and all sites are mostly level concrete pads. Most sites are shaded. The restrooms are the cleanest we've ever seen in a state park in any state. They have a handy double dump station on the way out of the park. The office staff here is exceptionally helpful. We plan to return here. With our discounts we ended up paying $11.25 per night.

This is an excellent park. The owner was in the office and was very congenial and helpful when we checked in. The pull through sites were gigantic. Ours was 39 feet wide and at least 75 feet long and easily accommodated our 31 ft trailer and 18 foot long tow vehicle. Our site was gravel and level. Each site has a rustic fenced in patio area that is gravel. The Wi-Fi worked like a charm; the restroom/shower combination rooms were sparkling; and the laundromat was cool and clean. There are only 4 washers and 4 dryers so you be mindful of this. This is a desert climate with the corresponding shrubs, trees, cactus, etc for decoration. It's a very attractive, well thought out layout. They do not have cable TV and that's the only negative in my mind even though we pulled in very clear signals on local major network channels. This park is located next to a cemetery at the end of the road so is nice and quiet. It's easy to find due to clear signs on the highway. We would return here.

This is a basic no-frills RV Park that has a lot of road noise. The advertised Wi-Fi works only in the registration building which doubles as a convenience store, lounge, gas station. The sites were level and gravel. Interior roads were gravel as well. The owner handled our check-in and was prompt and courteous. He even gave us a 10% discount to match that provided by their Good Sam competition down the road. The restroom and shower room exterior doors required a key to enter which we felt was a good security measure. I would probably not stay here again due to excessive road noise.

This was an overnight stay for us. We found the sites and interior road to be paved and level. The restrooms and showers are nice and clean although a little old. You do not pay extra for showers like other parks in this town charge. Wi-Fi was at no charge, and it worked fine. There was minimal road noise even though the highway was very near the park. There is a great little Mexican restaurant that has a congenial owner. We would not stay here again however just because it's a basic no frills park at a rate much too high for what you get.

This is the perfect RV Park for adult travelers. It has any and all amenities including a huge gymnasium style rec/dining room complete with a stage, a very large billiards room, several swimming pools, an outside breakfast/cocktail bar by the pools, a huge laundromat (32 washers and 32 dryers and for all but 5 washers you have to use a pre-purchased card to operate), several different function rooms, a luxurious living room complete with terrazzo tile up front by the registration desk. The sites are wide enough to park trailer and tow vehicle side by side. Sites are level and most are surrounded by trees or privacy shrubs. Staff is great. Restrooms and showers are sparkling. We definitely will return here. Be sure to print the 50% off the first week coupon from their website. With it and our Good Sam discount we paid $282 for an 11 night stay.

This is an excellent stopover for a night or a place to use as a base to explore the Davis Mountains area. The cold clear spring water in the huge Balmorhea Springs pool is unique, and people come here from all over to scuba, snorkel and just plain swim in the waters year round. All the RV sites have covered picnic tables. These are adobe styled and painted white. The cable TV reception was excellent, and all utilities worked great. They have a dump station for campers to use. The only negative is that the Wi-Fi signal doesn't reach any of the RV sites. It does reach their motel rooms though. You can drive to the Entrance ranger station and use the Wi-Fi service, which you must purchase from TengoNet. With our discounts we paid $14.25 per night. We will return!

This is a great place to either stay overnight or spend 2 full weeks, if you can live without TV reception of any sort, cell phones, or Wi-Fi. Nice, quiet spot on a lake in the midst of the dry high desert section of Arizona. Pretty mountain terrain begins a little farther south of here. There are several hiking trails in the park and petroglyphs as well as the ruins of a old pueblo to hike to. It's a very restful and welcome place. We will definitely return here. Only reason it doesn't get a 10 is the lack of modern communications on each site. There is, however, a public pay telephone up by the Entrance Station.

We stayed here a week while visiting nearby friends. This is a well established park that has mainly permanent trailers but they have about 20-25 transient RV sites. Wi-Fi is available free if you are parked in the spaces near the office. Staff is very friendly and all residents very friendly. Trees are smallish in the transient parking area. Some spots are paved, some are grass. There is shuffleboard and scheduled activities and tours including rides to Malls and to the International Bridge if you want to cross into Mexico to shop. There is no swimming pool. The laundry room is one of the most reasonably prices we have ever seen. Restrooms are extremely well kept with free hot water. We saw no children while there. Everyone appears to be retirees or travelers. If you pay for 3 nights, you get the 4th night free so the rate works out to be $25 a night. This is a very convenient location on the north side of Brownsville. Near lots of restaurants and a nice big mall on the expressway. Its about 3/4 mile off the freeway and there is no road noise because there are lots of large trees in this tropical town. There is an occasional train going by on the railroad tracks at the rear of the park but it didn't bother us. We felt safe here. The park is fenced and the entrance gate is locked at 8 pm and you need a key code to enter. We would return.

We were here for 2 nights; office staff was friendly and penciled us in for a 3rd night if we decided to stay. We left after 2 with no penalty. Nice place on a lake. You drive through what seems to be a city park to get to the RV park. There were people camping in it outside the campground. The RV Park had good gravel interior roads and sites and nice large trees. It was quiet when we were there. We saw wild turkey and deer as we drove in each night of our stay. The place completely filled up for the weekend. The one restroom available for us required a key to enter with, which we liked. The restroom seemed to be a city park restroom converted for all purpose. A single room had one toilet, sink and shower all. The room had cobwebs and some bugs both alive and dead as well as a few leaves and dirt around the bench. Just didn't get cleaned thoroughly. It also didn't have soap although there was toilet paper and cloth hand towels on an old fashioned roll. The shower itself was pretty clean though. There were windows propped open with coke cans so at night you would worry about privacy even though they were high windows. Everything else worked properly. They have a fairly well stocked store up at the office. We would return here.

We went early for a Rally then stayed over an extra day on the end. This park is good for families in that there is a playground for kids, a covered indoor heated pool, there are marshmallow roasts held by the park on Friday and Saturday nights. They have a BBQ pit for use in a central site. They have a large game room and fairly large meeting room complete with kitchen. They will cook breakfasts on Saturday and if requested on Sundays. They have a petting zoo of 2 miniature horses and one goat. The owners are super nice. Bathrooms were sparkling. Staff was friendly and mostly helpful. There are large trees but not at every site. Only improvement to the facilities would be to pave the interior roads and sites themselves. Also, some of the standard sites are quite narrow but didn't affect us. If you want room for slides or cable TV be sure to ask for it in advance. Cable TV not on every site. Their WiFi worked like a charm. We will return here especially after doing drive-by checks on the other parks in the area and what they offer.

We stayed here 5 nights. 63 of the 93 sites were pull through. The office staff was efficient and pleasant and very helpful. There was construction on the freeway side of the park and the actual entrance to the park was in a construction zone for the first 4 days we were there but it was easy access. Everything else was as advertised, clean restroom and shower facilities, cable tv worked, WiFi worked. There is a nice laundry area just off the restrooms which has cable TV and good air conditioning. Interior roads and sites themselves were gravel/caliche. Sites were fairly level and roads mostly smooth. About half the sites were full of seasonal residents. The grocery and supply area was well stocked and since it was hot outside, the ice cream bar cooler was very popular. There was also game room near the office. Entire park was nice and neat.

We stayed here one night. Its a great state park once you get there. You must drive along Route 10 which is a narrow, winding road to reach the park. The park is on a lake and stretches out quite a way. The lake near us was still and did not have fresh looking water in it. Tent campers are separated from RV people. Showers have shower curtains not locked doors. There is no TV and no computer connections at all. We saw deer grazing on the park grounds. The grounds are clean and neat. The Ranger on duty at the check in gate was super nice. We would return here for a longer stay.

We stayed here 3 nights while visiting friends in the area. This is a neat, clean family oriented park. I had requested a site with WiFi service when calling for reservations and sending in the first nights rent. Upon arrival, we found we did not have WiFi service as requested once set up at the site. Evidently our site was 4 sites outside the WiFi broadcast range. This was very annoying and the office worker was somewhat rude about the whole situation. We had to walk to the office to receive a signal. The owner himself was very nice but couldn't help because they were full up by that time. The park was clean overall, had paved interior roads and exceptionally long and wide, grassy pull through sites. Their speed bumps were jarring. You can get propane refills here.

We stayed here 5 nights. This was the only RV Park in this area that said they had WiFi service. I specifically requested a site with WiFi service. We paid in advance for WiFi but it didn't work at our site. It did not work up at the office. The owner offered to let us use their modem connection to get online - but you had to stand right there in the small, hot office with your laptop. Not a good situation. There were no refunds on the WiFi. Owner maintained the service was in working order. The single bathroom and shower room combo was older and not very clean. There was a single 30 gallon trash can at the back of the park, by the bathroom, for all to use and it was stacked high with trash by midday each day. The owner himself would come and take the trash to the dumpster up near the office. The owner and his son were always polite. Interior road and sites were paved and level. There was a small amount of scattered trash on some of the sites. There were what looked to be permanent residents in most of the motel rooms, who sat outside, barbequed meals, etc. The electricity, water and sewer worked ok.

We stayed here 2 nights. It is a quiet family oriented park that has quite a few long term campers. It has dirt/gravel interior roads and sites are mainly level. All sites are under tall trees and the park is on a hillside and hilltop with a lovely view of green, rolling hills and pastures. There is no cable TV but we pulled in 7 stations via antennae. There is no WiFi or internet modem available. On Saturday night the owners brought in entertainment and had a live oldies/rock band come in and play outdoors under a tent down near the office. A lot of residents went out, sat under the stars on picnic tables and folding chairs to listen. The band was extremely loud and annoying to those of us who didn't want to listen. The owners are super nice and overall the grounds are neat. Bathrooms are nice and neat and the shower stalls are unisex individual rooms that are separate from the toilet area. There aren't many restaurants in the area however we found outstanding pizza at a local pizza eatery that had a wonderful huge old fashioned pizza oven. They have no website that I have been able to locate.

We spent 4 nights here. There was construction going on at the entrance and throughout some parts of the RV Park which greatly detracted from the parks appearance. There are quite a few of park model trailers here but most appeared to be very neat and tidy. There were plenty of transient trailer sites available as well. There is no cable TV service and only a few local channels came in. There appears to be a very organized and busy calendar of activities. You have to pay online for Wireless Internet service through a vendor company which was rather cumbersome. The restrooms near our site were very clean and airy. The showers are on the opposite side of the restroom building and are actually in separate little rooms so you can lock yourself in. Men and women use the same shower rooms. All were extremely clean in appearance. You can reach the marina and lake front only by crossing over the very busy highway in front of the office. The island is beautiful and has gently rolling hills full of dairy farms. There is only one main highway on the island so it stays very busy. There are few nearby restaurants so come prepared to cook for yourself.

We overnighted here. This is a beautiful location. Park is on a hillside above a small lake where you can fish or rent canoes, paddle boats, etc. The entire property is wooded and the facilities are very complete and well kept. The washroom is neat as are the restrooms and showers. The office staff was terrific and very welcoming. There is a separate building with a game room and meeting room. There is a small grocery supply section along with RV supplies and souvenirs section in the office building. The park is very child friendly and has brightly painted playground equipment. They even have a yurt for rent as well as cabins. The only negative is the many mosquitoes. On a walk to the rear of the property and down by the lake we were repeatedly bitten. Also we were unable to sit outside and enjoy at the lake. We will return prepared for the little rascals.

We stayed here 11 days in early June. The weather was a bit cool for us but we totally loved the campground and area. We got one of the few back-in sites with clear ocean views. The ocean and mountain views are exceptional. It is not waterfront property and you cannot walk to the water. They take no reservations so you drive up and go find a space and set up. Then you go to the office and pay the people. They have WiFi at a central location up near the office. There is a TV room near the office which has cable TV service. In that same room are modem connections. Their WiFi broadcasts very well for approximately 100 feet so you can drive up, sit in the car and access the Internet if you don't want to go into the TV room. The laundry room is a separate building on the back side of the park that is impressively large, older and very well maintained. Laundry room closes at dusk. The restroom and shower facilities are very clean, but old and you have to pay for hot water. We did not use the pool although there were hardy souls using it. My cell phone (Verizon) did not work at this park and I had to drive up the road almost 3 miles to find service. There were quite a few tent campers coming in towards the end of our stay. There are camper workers who work in the office and everyone we met there was very helpful and informative. This RV park is one we would return to for an entire summer.

We stayed here 7 nights. This is an excellent campground in that they provide everything as advertised. There are modem hookups in a large room near the office plus we had excellent WiFi at our site. They have a well equipped rv supply section, good selection of groceries and CDs and tapes to use. The office staff was efficient, friendly and very helpful. We had a large oversized site next to both sets of restrooms, another media room that is combined with a game room, the heated pool, the laundry room and the office. The entire park is under pine trees on a hillside and is very attractive.

Love this place. We spent 5 nights here. They are just across the street from the beach and Atlantic Ocean. This is an extremely neat and clean park with paved interior roads and sites. There are a lot of seasonal campers here with those nice little permanent trailer houses. Everything is neat as a pin and very attractive. The restrooms and shower rooms are extremely clean. The laundry room is extremely clean and has good washers. The flooring in it was cleaned and waxed while we were there. At the rear of the property, they have a weight room., a small meeting room, a kitchen, a lending library and a small laundry room. This is a great base camp from which to explore Cape Cod because you can go both directions with ease. Office staff is very knowledgeable and friendly. They have an upstairs media room where you can use their computer or use a modem line. WiFi worked like a charm.

We were forced to stay here over Memorial Day Weekend because of lack of advance reservations. Most sites seemed to hold long time permanent tenants. A lot of the permanent sites were not neat or attractive. The park is on a hilltop yet near a swampy area across the highway. We were parked in a dry, sunny, dusty area. The park totally filled up over the weekend and everyone seemed to drive golf carts. Young teens drove around with boomboxes blasting. The advertised WiFi did not work in spite of assertions by the office staff that it did work. You had to drive or walk up to the main office to pick up a signal. People who were long termers there were not aware they advertised WiFi. Be aware of this. We will never return here.

This campground is located to the east of Lancaster and is a great base camp for touring the Amish countryside. Interior roads are very well maintained gravel as are the sites. A number of the sites are under trees but some sites are up on a small hill in a clearing. Showers and restrooms were extremely clean. Office staff was friendly and informative. They have a very attractive playground for small kids. They stay booked up so call for reservations. We left only because they were booked for Memorial Day weekend and we had to give up our space. The campground staff will arrange for a free tour of the Amish countryside that is very informative and entertaining.

We spent 3 weeks and went sightseeing into Washington DC and the surrounding area for 2 solid weeks. The city bus comes into the park itself to the end-of-the-line bus stop, then takes you to the Metro rail line station so you catch a subway ride into the city. The staff is wonderful, the grounds are great. We had a roomy site near the recreation hall, restaurant, laundry, pool. The facility is located on a couple of small hills so daily walks were refreshing. This a very complete campground. They have a high water pressure and will warn you about it upon check in. Make sure you have a pressure regulator for your water intake hose or it will blow out your line. We loved this place.

We spent 5 nights here. They have paved interior roads and adequate sites. They have a very small laundry but a good grocery store and gift shop area. Also a nice game room for the kids. The staff is very nice and informative. They have great WiFi service. The big attraction here is a bus stop near the park entrance but we drove everywhere. The park itself and the facilities are quite good. The BIG negative is location. The park is sandwiched between a busy road and a busy railroad track. It backs up to a very busy rail line and some sites seem to be about 10 feet from the tracks. Trains came by day and night and while they didn't blow their horns, they made lots of noise just because they were so close. You could also feel the vibrations from the trains. The passenger trains screamed by at about 50 mph and the cargo trains roared and rumbled by at 30 mph. The noise didn't bother the husband but woke up the wife numerous times each night.

This is kid friendly place. Restrooms were very clean as were showers. They did have a nice game room and TV/movie viewing room. The small grocery store was pretty well stocked. They do sell propane here. There is no cable TV and no WiFi. We regret our planned 2 night stay because there is a nearby major North to South railroad line and the trains come through every 10 minutes day and night. The south bound trains hit their whistles just as they reach the park so you get jarred awake quite frequently each night. We will not ever stay here again.

We spent 7 nights here and used it as a base to explore Charleston and Savannah. An older campground that is mostly well maintained. Did not use the swimming pool but did use bathhouse. Exterior door does not close completely. Shower stall doors did lock so there was some degree of security. Nice place for walking as interior roads were gravel and the entire campground is under very tall pine trees. Office staff was friendly and helpful. We would return. Negatives are I-95 road noise and older rec hall. The second restroom near the rec hall on the back of the park needs a major renovation and cleaning. There is no security fence on the rear of the park.

This is an older but very well maintained park. We feel its an excellent place to stay for an extended time. We extended our stay and stayed 5 nights instead of 2 nights. We were there in early April and experienced 3 unexpected nights of freezing temps and all utilities continued to work normally; i.e, no freezing pipes, etc. There are lots of trees and its a pretty park even though its an older park. The grounds slope down then back up small hills. They had a lot of camper-workers there and every person we encountered was super friendly and helpful. The camper/workers cleaned the restrooms very thoroughly because they used them too. The location is very convenient for visiting FDR's Little White House. There are some great restaurants in the area as well. The only negative is WiFi is available only at a central location - in the laundry room next to the office/store.
