Bad power. The owner told me the voltage throughout the park was bad. At our site, it dropped to 95v where it stayed throughout the day. Others were also having problems. Management continued to rent to new arrivals which added to the problem. We ended up turning all the power off at the box. Manage would not offer a partial refund as the owner told me he was not going to suffer a loss of money due to bad power. Cash only-no checks or credit cards. Definitely will not return.

This is a gem in the making. New owners. We were greeted with friendly smiles. Very clean restrooms/showers. Heavily treed which have been trimmed, so there is no problem. Being a family friendly park is highly stressed. Has a catch and release lake. Would definitely stay here again.

Very friendly staff. Excellent campground. Also has a nice laundry. Be certain to visit the nearby museum: Mountain Home Place.

Because the park recently discovered a felon in the park, they now require mobile home buyers and RVers staying a month at the monthly rate to pay $60/couple, in cash, and complete a four page financial application. Some of the information required is your social security number, photo copy of drivers license, mortgage history, employment history including current source and amount of income, bank and credit card account numbers, plus information on ALL vehicles, boats, etc you own. It goes on. Management could not assure that this information would be protected. Interestingly, I was told I could stay as long as I wish at the daily rate and not complete the application. That makes the felon argument sound a little absurd. I would never stay here.

Excellent campground, one of the very best Passport America campgrounds. Paved sites, clean restrooms with showers, and great laundry facilities. It is away from the Interstate, but close enough for easy drive to shopping. We took I-80 exit #46 for fuel at one of the two big truck stops there and found fuel 20 cents a gallon cheaper less than a mile away on Highway 50 Alt. on way to campground. This might not always be the case, but worth checking out. Have stayed here before and it never disappoints.

Great location for touring the Subaru manufacturing facility. Very quiet. Quick drive into Lafayette. Many seasonals. Call ahead to check on site suitable for big rig. Very helpful and friendly staff and owners. Would stay here again.

A great park for seeing the local sights. Centrally located and pretty quiet for being right in the middle of a major city. Camping area brightly lit with security lights at night. You park and call security to pay. We enjoyed walking around the huge campgrounds, watching kids at the Mini Indy race course and harness racing horse exercise. Many events at fairground. A real bargain for such a central location. Would stay here again.

No frills, but quiet with very long and very level sites. We used this as base for day trip to Houghton and Copper Harbor. Can walk to grocery store. Would highly suggest doing laundry prior to coming. Only laundromat in town is very dirty with many broken machines. Not much to the town, but the campground worked great for what we needed.

Rate reflects Passport America plus electric heater surcharge. A real find. Wonderful host who helped us figure out what to do and where to eat. It is on the river with great sunsets and very, very quiet but still right in town. We walked to the museums, Michigan lakefront and shopping areas. Sites are very level with full hook-ups. Would most definitely stay again.

This campground was well located for what we wanted to do in the Greater Madison area: to ride four Rail to Trail bike rides, and so for that reason, not sorry to have stayed here. However, this campground needs some maintenance. We have a large fifth-wheel and needed to maneuver around many low trees that crossed the roadways. There are no sewers, which isn't all that unusual in this area, but the bathrooms were in need of serious help. Showers were not working and the floors in poor repair. It was quiet which I cherish above sewers.

Rate reflects discount for Golden Age Pass. This is a US Bureau of Reclamation Area. Campground is about 5 miles north of Townsend on the banks of Canyon Ferry Lake. It is on Silo Road just beyond the KOA. Look for two large red brick silos that stand alone and turn toward the lake at the only major road in that area. Believe it is at milepost 70. Sign on road only states "camping." Campground is about a mile from main highway. No hookups, but you are rewarded with sitting right on lake edge and watch the huge white pelicans. Restrooms were very clean. Water is available from a central location. Sites have tables and fire rings. Very quiet. Great local museum in town. Lots of interesting things about Lewis and Clark who traveled through here before the Missouri River was dammed. We would stay again.

For what this is, it is a great place for overnight. Public owned on the banks of the Musselshell River under huge cottonwood trees. From downtown turn at Fairgrounds sign. Campground is about 1/2 mile. No hookups, but some tables and campfire rings that were the only indication of a parking place. We found a level spot and didn't have to unhook. Paved sidewalk into town. Easy walk to groceries and to a great local museum which we highly recommend. There is a walk along the river which starts at the fairgrounds and goes very near the downtown. Saw lots of deer. Very quiet. Donations accepted. Would most definitely stay again.

This isn't a fancy place, but no place in Hawthorne is fancy. It is well located, quiet, and clean with very clean bathrooms. It was much nicer than expected on reading prior reviews. There are no junky full time rigs. We would stay again.

We had camped here because of its location on the C&O Canal Trail. It was a big mistake as we are 34 feet long. I would not call this campground "big rig" friendly. Sites are hard to get into and there are lots of trees. It was, however, clean and probably an excellent place for smaller units. We attempted to ride our bikes from the campground to the trailhead. Road is steep, narrow, with lots of construction trucks. The trailhead is unmarked from road. We finally gave up trying to find it. We would not stay here again.

The price reflects being a non-resident. As we liked the park and location so much they allowed us to switch to a weekly rate. Only lack of water and sewer kept this campground from a five star rating. Campground was clean, well located, and personnel were very nice. We encountered none of the negatives of the previous reviews. We loved having the units with pets in a separate area. Big rigs sites are in a large open area. Campground host provided maps and excellent information about the area. The campground offered many activities, but we were there to see the nearby attractions of Gettysburg and Lancaster. Codorus is much more reasonable than than anything in Gettysburg and Lancaster. We rode the Rail Trail from York PA to the Mason-Dixon line. One of the best Rail Trails we have used. We would most definitely camp here again.

Rate reflects weekly rate of $175. This is a real find. I found this campground due to this website. Could not find mention of it as a campground in any other location. Nice people, ultra clean campground, excellent location, and good laundry facilities. It is right on the banks of the Mohawk River/Erie Canal. The mainline of the railroad is just across the river, but train horns were rarely heard. We are light sleepers and the frequent trains weren't a problem. We used this location to explore eastern New York with side trips to many historical sights including Albany to see the New York State Museum and to ride our bikes along the Erie Canal Trail.

This is an older park with poor water pressure and electric power. Weather turned cold and we needed to use electric heater, but amps were very low. When you make a reservation it is not for a specific site, which may or may not be a good thing. We were in Loop B which has some very tight turns for larger RVs. We got a pull through site which was fairly level but poorly laid out. Look site over very carefully to see if the directional arrows along the road really put the utility hookups on the correct side of the RV and check for low hanging trees. Some of the "big rig" site had vegetation so low as to make them unusable. TV reception was poor, usually doesn't make much of a difference to us, but with the cold weather, being indoors was desirable. Modem worked but not at broadband speeds. Cell phone worked. Overall a nice park and not sorry we came, but severely down rated due to water pressure and low electrical power.

Heavily wooded campground on lake just north of Rome. Not all sites are suitable for big rigs, but as this was off-season and in middle of week, we were allowed to look for a suitable site and found several. Lots and lots of mosquitoes in the deep shade. Pricing varies by site with those on the waterfront being $19/night. There is an additional charge of $3 for Friday, Sat. and Sunday nights.

A very nice city owned park very near Lake Ontario and just outside Rochester. Lots of shade, some big-rig sites. Not all sites have water, but readily available from sites scattered throughout the campground. DO NOT use GPS to locate campground. It will route you under a very low clearance tunnel that has no warning. From State Route 104 take Holt Road exit to the north. At Lake Road turn left, campground on left at sign. There are very, very few campgrounds for RVs in this area and this is a gem. Would stay again if in area.

From the previous reviews I was a bit reluctant, but the location was perfect and the price was right. Price reflects Passport America available during the week. We were in area to ride the towpath of the Erie Canal which is about 2 miles from the campground. It is also well located to Niagara Falls: about 20 miles away. The location is rural therefore it was quiet. We had electric and water. The electric wasn't strong as we would have liked, but it appeared better power is about to be installed. There are a number of seasonals but those sites seemed to be well kept. The campground owner gave us a lot of information about the area. We would stay here again.

Only lack of on-site water connection keeps this from the highest rating. In wooded area about 8 miles NE of Guthrie Center and 6 miles west of Yale where we came to bicycle the Raccoon River Valley Rail Trail. Appears park gets heavy weekend use from families, but suspect the middle of week would be empty. Park features trails, wildlife, and a 17 acre artificial lake with beach area and boat ramp. All sites are fairly level gravel, have tables and fire rings with grills. Park is well cared for lots of green grass and trees. This was an unexpected delightful find and we would most definitely return.

This works for an overnight stay only. If we hadn't been so tired and it was so late we would have moved on. Sites are gravel, unlevel and very narrow. I doubt they are ever full, but if so, slides would be touching slides. This is right off I-80, but very quiet. Think the back 1/3 of campground would be the quietest. Check in at motel office and no spaces are assigned. Would stay again only if very tired and very late.

In Valentine to ride the Cowboy Trail, a Rail to Trail conversion. RV park is right on the trail. Owner very friendly and helpful. Site green and inviting. We did not feel at all crowded and we have three slides. Flies small and numerous, but this is Nebraska! Found we needed a new trailer tire and were quickly taken care of at Mr. Tire. We would definitely return.

Price reflects mandatory daily entrance fee. Ft. Robinson was a delightful find. Campground not nearly as great as the park. We stayed in the Red Cloud section which has full hook-ups but no shower/restroom facilities and little shade. The park office said all sites were the same length. This is not true. We needed a longer site and this was easily remedied. We did not disconnect and visited the entire park on bicycles including riding to the nearby town of Crawford on the White River Rail Trail. Highly recommend both museums, especially the historical one. This place ozzes history and the scenery makes you think you couldn't possibly be in Nebraska. We were told the park was pretty much a Memorial Day to Labor Day operation, but campgrounds stay open to about October 1. We would most definitely return.

A delightful find in the desert. Located about five miles north of Beatty on US 95. Campground dirt, under lots of cottonwood trees. The highlight are the natural hot springs which have been made into three pools of varying temperatures. Each pool is covered by a building for privacy and shade. Pools are extremely clean. This was a welcome find after a long day on the road. We would most definitely stay here again.

We came for two days and stayed ten. We really enjoyed the quiet, the wildlife watching: right from the RV, and the bike riding. We would most definitely return, but only after April first when the entire park and adjoining Wildlife Management Area are fully opened. Prior to this time much is closed as the numerous wild turkeys are roosting. Wildlife Area provides some rugged mountain biking, but there are miles of flat, easy biking near the campground. The bird blinds are great. Saw many colorful birds and got some great pictures. Enjoyed nature hikes and talks lead by the naturalist. We've stayed in 8 Texas State Parks on this trip and this was our favorite.

A fabulous find. Very scenic and quiet in the middle of the week. We stayed Monday - Thursday and couldn't extend as campground was full from reservations. Understand the weekends are a far cry from the serenity we enjoyed. We hiked all the trails, some more scenic than others, but all good exercise. Thought we would ride bikes on trails, but numerous rock outcropping made the trails more suitable for feet than bikes. Rate reflects Texas State Park Pass, otherwise daily entrance fee is $5. Would stay again.

Rate reflects having a Texas State Park Pass that covers entrance fees. Quiet, beautiful setting. Took a wonderful guided hike: the only way to see the vast majority of the park and the wonderful pictographs. Today's hike was canceled for lack of a volunteer guide. Understand this happens frequently. If taking a tour is one of the main reasons for coming here, we recommend calling first to make sure a tour guide is available. We would camp here again.

Park is very appealing and extremely well kept. The management great, but the road noise and numerous trains during the night took a rating of 10 down to a 6. I think the noise would have been considerable less had we been at the back of the park. I would stay again, but only in the further site from the road.

We pulled in and after a quick look around and quote on rate we were gone. This park is greatly over priced. It is a small park, but could see evidence of new park being built. Park appeared to be un-kept and sites were small. On-site management seems to be part-time. I called for information and call was not returned. We pulled in anyway and regretted getting off the highway. The potential for something better is here, but doesn't currently exist, at least not for $25.

Rate reflexes having purchased a state park pass that cover entrance fees. Would be a 10, but lacks sewer connection. Camped in Hen House Ridge Unit in the back-in sites area. More spacious and scenic as right on the lake, than the pull-thru area. Spent two wonderful afternoons riding bikes in park. Easy to ride to Walnut Ridge Unit which is on the other side of the highway. Distance is short and highway shoulders very wide. Fewer people in Walnut Ridge area and it appears to have been especially hard hit by Hurricane Rita. Nature trails in Walnut Ridge Unit are still clogged with downed trees. Grassy tent area along lake front in Hen House Ridge Unit look very appealing. Excellent cell phone and airdate card reception. Midweek we practically had the place to ourselves. Quiet but for the frogs.

A true gem! The best park of a four month trip. Came for a few days and stayed 10. Beautiful area on the Mississippi River with lots of history. Be sure to walk the loop, looking at the interesting tombstones, pristine condition rifle trenches and gun emplacements from the Civil War. Park is a few miles off the Natchez Trace and Vicksburg is about 30 miles away. Very quiet with the only noise being the sound of tugs on the river. Stayed in lower campground, but could have easily climbed the paved hill to the upper campground. A major pipeline is being built in the area and the workers who have occupied much of the park are leaving. Efficient laundry equipment. Poor reception for cell phone and Internet air cards. We took our computer to Port Gibson library where reception and speed were excellent. The best thing were the outstanding people who ran the park. We look forward to our next visit.

Learned of this campground on flyer at Mississippi Welcome Center. It is located at the county event center which appeared to have mainly livestock type events. It is quiet and well located to Hattiesburg. Sites are paved, but many are very sloped. The area is grassed but there are no trees. The hookups are at the far back of the site and require a long sewer hose. Restroom and showers are a long walk from campsites. You must make arrangements to stay during business hours and only cash is accepted. We would stay again only because of price and closeness to Hattiesburg. This is no frills.

We love the location of this park. Easy to go into New Orleans, but best of all is that the midway point of the Tammany Trace, a Rails to Trails bike trail passes the park. We rode to the ends and into Mandeville to go to the Saturday market held at the trail head there. As we left they announced the re-opening, within the week, of the newer section of the park which had been closed since Katrina. The old part will be closed and completely reworked. The beach reopened while we were there. Hosts were great and had many wonderful recommendations.

This is a wonderfully located jewel to use as a base for exploring the greater Baton Rouge area. It is very quiet. We rode our bikes and walked on the nearby levee. They no longer have laundry facilities. We would definitely stay again.

Rate is for Passport America. As the sewer is located at the far rear of the campsites, you need a very long sewer hose. Sites have recently been paved. Had trouble with electrical box which was quickly repaired. This is no frills, but well located for visiting the area, and because of it's rural location, it is very quiet. Glad they had laundry. Follow directions in campground guides not GPS.

Camped in North Campground. Made reservations on Internet and luckily picked a site not on the perimeter. Most of the sites on the perimeter are very sloped. Some to the point of being unusable. The staff at office, which is several miles from the North Campground is not very knowledgeable about the sites, suitability for slides, etc. Website is best source for this information. We had a great time visiting the locals who came in great numbers during the weekends. We would stay here again but would choose our campsite with great care.
