This is more of a campground than a RV park. Lots of tents and very few of the sites have sewer. Park is nice enough and hosts are polite enough but the distance from town combined with the fairly high rates and lack of sewer hookups costs them points. OK for a short rest or to visit Seattle.
This is a great park. The owner is friendly and very helpful. The park is clean and well maintained. At first glance this park would appear to be your typical in town long term RV park mostly filled with long term residents, and this is true to some extent. The long term residents mostly live around the perimeter, with the center pull through spaces reserved for short term renters. There is a mix of grassy and gravel sites with good working full hookups. There is shade at some but not all of the spaces. We were lucky enough to get one with shade. Most RV sizes should fit although some larger fivers might have to jockey some. Although some of the long term residents are in older RVs most of them are clean and for the most part not cluttered. The owner has gone a long way to rid he park of trouble makers and trash. We only encountered friendly people who spoke highly of the owner and his effort at removing the trouble makers. We enjoyed quiet nights and heard not a single raised voice or argument. The restrooms / showers are huge, clean, and free. The on site laundromat is clean and well maintained, and reasonably priced, 1.25 per load to wash and .75 to dry. Free book, video-tape, and DVD exchange in the laundry. The Wi-Fi is blazing fast and stable. Garbage disposal is convenient. Although not gated the park is fully fenced and somewhat hidden behind a self storage barn. There are security cameras all around and the owner lives on site. Watch out for the speed bumps. As a small in town non-resort park I honestly can not say enough good about this park. If we ever pass though the area again we will not hesitate to stay here. The $17.00 per night rate is based on the park's $120.00 weekly rate. The park also offers a $300.00 monthly rate with electricity paid separately.
The best thing about this park is it's proximity to downtown Dodge. Just blocks to downtown. The park is reasonably clean and well maintained. The operators are friendly and helpful. You do have to drive through a older lower class part of town with mobile homes to get to the park, but once you arrive the WiFi works great and the rates are reasonable. The on site laundry has plenty of newer washing machines to take care of your laundry needs. The adjoining lake that inspired the park's name has succumbed to the drought that has been affecting the great plains and has completely dried up. Not much the park owners can do about that. So leave your swimsuit and fishing pole at home. Picnic tables are provided at most sites, and although there are several poorer condition long-termers, I was quite comfortable here. This is not a resort park but unless you are a appearance snob this park will meet your needs for a place to stay in Dodge. I would stay again without any qualms.
The Management was nice and the sites were well maintained. The roads were a little tight and there is a pretty good hill to entering the park. The WiFi works most of the time but went down one night after all the management left for the day. It was back up the next morning. You should know that there are a lot of trees here, so if you have satellite you could have a problem getting a signal. Overall a good park and I would stay here again.
This is actually more of a mobile home park that is masquerading as a RV park. As near as I can tell, when a mobile home is removed for whatever reason they turn the slab into a RV slot. The mobile homes are stacked in tight. This is not the place you go for a vacation. But since there are not too many RV parks in the St. Louis area, this is the kind of place you go to if you are working in, or visiting the area and just need a place to park. Call as you pull up and a caretaker will meet you at the entrance. Didn't have any problems, but would only go back if I had to have a place to stay.
This is a typical state operated park, clean and well maintained with plenty of room at each site. The campground is surrounded on three sides with water and the views are great. Fire rings, grills, and picnic tables at most sites. Friendly and helpful staff.
This is a very busy park with a mix of long and short term visitors. The people are very friendly and helpful, but they pack you in like sardines in a can. There is a steep hill leading into the park and,once you get in the park, there is not a lot of room between sites. I was so close to the next RV I could not put my awning out. There seems to have been little thought to the placement of water and sewer hookups, and we did not have enough hose to reach for our sewer connection. However the managers provided me with hose for free, but it was leaky. The WiFi was intermittent and I had to request they reset it several times. Not the best park I have ever stayed in, but far from the worse. One thing I have to say was that the management personnel were very nice and helpful. Not a park to relax in but a reasonable price and close to food and gas.
I found this to be a very good place to stay. Huge sites that are easy to get into and out of. The grounds were clean and level. The WiFi is excellent and reasonably priced, $2.50 a day or $5 a week. Plenty of room, with picnic tables at each site. Very close to grocery and gas as well as other stores. I honestly can find nothing bad to say about staying here other than the lack of sewer hookups. If you need to do your laundry, you have to drive to the west side of town, as that is the closest laundromat. First come first served with an easy self pay box.
