Campground has changed to the dark side. Rates have gone up to 35 versus 30, without any significant changes for the better. Restrooms were full of dead bugs and one out of two toilets was stopped up and disgusting. I think the lady who had done an outstanding job has been let go. The guys doing it now don't spend but 5 minutes on cleaning, go figure. Sites are still the same with lots of blocks needed to level unless you get here early and find one of the twenty where you can level your unit. Will be looking for another campground in the future. It's not the staff at the campground; its the city management people that have no clue in running a campground.

Still a great campground and no complaints what so ever. Yes, 4 days of rain will make the grass grow and not suited to cut when wet. Some people just have to find something as stated before. Will be back soon.

Terrific campground that allows the senior access pass which is half price. Rangers are great and friendly. It is very isolated with no cell or local TV stations. Wally world is about 20 minutes away if you get lonely.

Campground had done a 180 degree since last visit. No seasonals and very clean and staff is very friendly and caters to campers. Restrooms are spotless thanks to a lady that cleans for two hours every day. Will return again.

Second event at a KOA in the past seven years. Why would they put a 32' fifth wheel with a full size truck on a 40' site between two roads? You wonder what management is thinking. Pull-through are nice and shaded and park is very clean. Security is constant riding around on their golf cart. Would stay again but never on their wish to park me on a site that is really not camper friendly. Wake up people.

Nice campground with shopping only ten minutes away near by in Middlesboro, Kentucky. Rating would be higher if they had water at the site. Fill your RV tank when you enter if you are staying overnight. Rate is 1/2 price from using Golden Age pass. Lots of hiking trails available.

Another State Park that is great. Although it states big rig friendly, it would help if you knew your site in advance: not all are large enough. Most state 41 feet in depth but some lack that amount for sure unless you place your rear jacks on very unlevel ground. Sites are mostly level and paved and 1/2 or almost have sewers if you are staying very long. No TV or cell reception in park. You can get PBS and KET but no major news station. Cell service is available about 1 mile drive if you have AT&T. Bluegrass cell will work in campground and at lodge. Closest town is Burkesville with not much but does have gas and groceries and some shops.

Still a nice getaway campground. Stayed two nights and enjoyed the time away. We arrived after some tent people that left a mess of beer cans behind the site and trash in the fire pit. Wouldn't expect anything less, some people just don't get it.

Still one of the top notch campgrounds in the area. Would have given a higher rank if the security people riding around, would stop some of the people who don't recognize the speed limit within the campground. The dust was bad because of all the new gravel in place.

Very nice campground with pull-through sites that help for short stays. We stayed here two nights on the way to the beach. W-Fi is available but you need to be close to office. Restrooms need to updated but a one-holer is OK. Will stay here again next time through.

Beautiful state campground with lots to do at campground and in the area. Only issue like others is lack of Wi-fi; otherwise would rank as one of the top all time.

We camped here going and coming to Florida for an overnight only. Pull-through sites help but not much around here to do. Will stay here again, it's a nice campground.

Out of the way campground but still one of our favorites. Always clean and the upkeep is ongoing. Wally World is only 20 minutes away in case you want or need something.

Septic system went down and no one was allowed to dump and it may be down for a week. This isn't the fault of the campground but something could have been done for the campers to dump even if the state had to hire private sewage pumpers to help out in an emergency. The campground is still one of my favorites but you can see that the state is cutting corners on the upkeep and it will cost them in the long run of things.

Still a great campground but evidently someone else is running the park. The rules have become very lax and people are very disrespectful to the campground. There was one site that had two campers and 3 tents on one site. Not a very good for the people around them. Rules are needed for a reason and the people riding around checking should be enforcing them for everyone's sake.

Still one the best campgrounds around the area despite all the negativity from other campers. I love the one about the lady crying about her mutt not being allowed to be caged during freezing temperatures, makes sense to me. NOT. Enjoy what is here or leave.

A beautiful campground with nice sites out in no man's land. It was very peaceful and quite and the horse center was fairly full. We go here about twice a year and are never disappointed even without wifi or scarce cell phone service. You can use your cell phone if you find the right spot on a cloudless day. I wish they had full hookup but who's spoiled.

An excellent campground with spacious sites. They isn't much to do but it is a great place to get away from everything. Cell service is good and you get 4 TV stations out of Louisville with antenna. The small town of Taylorsville is a short drive away and you can usually find what you need. Sure wish they had full hookups.

Really love the park and the many attractions and things to do, it is beautiful. We stayed in section A and besides section B they have the largest sites that can be reserved. Wi-Fi is available at the Inn which is about 3 miles away. Cell service is in and out with maybe two bars at the max. You can get three bars at the top of the hill before you turn into the Village or Gold Course. We stayed for 5 days and will return.

Nice large sites with water and elec. It's nice to get away without the internet and very little cell phone use. Hard to get the cell to work at times. If you like getting away with nature, this is the place. Plenty of trials to keep you occupied. Closest town is probably about 20 minutes away, with a Wally World.

Very nice campground and staff goes beyond. This is one of the nicest Good Sams around. They have sorted out some of the seasonals and opened up the choice sites. Wi-Fi worked great and campground was completely full.

Good location off highway and friendly staff. A little hard to understand directions because it is last exit before bridge to Canada, little scary. No issues with directions after you've been there. Large sites with all the hookups make it nice. Gravel pads with grass lots. It can be a little mushy after a rain and concrete or gravel pad for entry would be nice. No wifi ,but it does have a large laundry room on site.

Easy access off I-270 around Columbus. Small park but very friendly staff and a great overnight stopover or if your visiting Columbus. I would stay here again.

Great week at Mackinaw City Mill Creek. Hard not to like this campground with the lake right out your door. Staff was great and plentiful to help you out and keep the grounds clean. Only thing it could use is more modern bathrooms and facilities. A very large campground with limited facilities.

Great access off I-75 with graveled lots and all hookups. We arrived after a hard rain storm and the gravel was helpful versus some lawn yards that we have stayed. Staff was friendly and helpful. This is a good place for an overnight stay. Not much to do in the area and probably about 90% of the campers are seasonal or homesteaders with most nicely kept. Would stay again for an overnighter or two.

If you prefer camping in an open field with electric and water, this is the place. No gravel on sites or pad or roadways. Gravel is cheap and would help a lot. We arrived after a rain and had to be careful on not sinking so we could leave very early the next morning. It has a swimming lake with outhouses, yes I said outhouses, in close proximity of children swimming. Don't know what the health department would say about that. At least the outhouses have stainless steel circles to sit upon, no splinters or rust you know. I would not recommend this off the track park to anyone that I liked. As you can tell I was not pleased.

Many large pull-through sites without shade and no Wi-Fi available unless you walk up to the office or close to it. Only about 50 nice sites available for short timers with remainder being used for homesteaders. Very close to all activities with all day shuttle service for 6.00 to the Falls. Would stay here again but a little pricey but you have to expect that for a tourist area.

A beautiful park and shade every where. The sites are tight and large rigs will have a difficult time unless they know the site from previous visits. We had site 115 and had just enough room for the slides and awning for a fifth wheel. Full hookups are limited and some of these sites had tents on them. The week we were there was tent city or appeared that way. Rest rooms floors were some of the worst but that is the norm for a beach area. Would visit again but I now know what sites to choose.

We used this campground as a stopover from Tybee Island on the way home to break up the trip. It is a clean campground mostly built on a hillside with some spots on the lower level. It was easy to get into considering the layout and the views of the mountains were something. Staff was friendly and willing to help. The only negative thing to me was the cost. It is a little pricey but I would return for a short visit.

Great campground for being the only option on Tybee Island. It's being run by the city versus private and the people are doing a great job. Where we were for the week, it was a little buggy and needed spraying, but wasn't an issue except for being out at night sitting around the camper. They are working on the campground all the time to upgrade and stay on top of things. I would highly recommend this campground and Tybee Island.

This was supposed to be a Thousand Trails trip for the presentation for membership. We stayed one night and left the next morning because of the goat farm atmosphere of the park. It is built on a hillside with no space for sitting or being outside. We left without the presentation or free gifts, that's how bad this place is for camping. At best, it's a stopover versus pulling in Walmart for the night, if you want the electric and water. If you stay here, hope you like the washout red clay that washed on your site when it rains.

Great place for hiking and enjoying the outdoors. Not much else to do though and the camp store wasn't open for this time of year. Campground was about half full with lots of horse trailers and a road of off road people who blocked the road and took advantage of sites not occupied. As far as I know they were never told to correct the situation. Enjoyed the week though and will return.

Great campground and people were very friendly and helpful. Restrooms were good as far as clean goes but very accommodating with seperate showers and great heat. Many campers with dogs that barked at night for a while. Overall the six nights were quiet and restful. The fire pits are way too close to the campers though and can provide a smoky situation especially in the summer.
