I can't really disagree with the other prior reviews. BUT, here is my take: Ok semi-primitive campsites. A little grass around, mature trees, next to visitor center, just a couple of minutes from Springdale. Sites separated ok but not really private. Dry and a bit dusty this time of year. Compared to other campgrounds I have rated a "10", this is not a "10". Our Verizon phone and hot spot worked great here. Rate was with a Golden Age Passport. (What comes after "Golden"?)
We arrived Sep 23. It was all DRY, no rivers or mud. A clear, warm day mid 60s. We stayed in #107 and it is level, gravel, has some grass and trees, and is quite close to 106 and 108. But OK. Wi-Fi at 5PM was a little slow, but worked just fine. Ruby's is a small city, with most of what campers need is within 1/4 mile. And it is very close to Bryce. The shuttle to Bryce picks up at the campground.
Pinon trees. Number thirty seven (#37) a back in, not straight but very private. This loop has horse corals. Lots of flies! A nice area! Campground on a hill side, so most sites have some slope. The "rocks" and history are spectacular!
Nice desert campground. Trees and grass at the Broken Wheel campground. Orient rig to get sun or shade as you prefer. About 100 deg on our first trip in 2013. Our rate includes a $5/day credit for having Idaho's State Park "Passport". We agree with prior reviews.
This is a large and old RV Park that has new owners. Office staff were pleasant. There are lots of sites that are not well kept. Sites closer to the office are in better condition. Sites are gravel and mostly level with a few trees. The park is on the north side of Boise so it is a good place to start a trip to the north up Highway 55. No cable TV but antenna TV reception is good, our Verizon phone and broadband hot spot worked well. Quiet, but a complicated process to get to from I-84.
We agree with the other early 2013 reviews. We would add that in spite of any of the negatives, this RV park is an excellent value. We would stay here again. We didn't find many shade trees as others have indicated.
Rate was for full hook up. A nice campground, facilities a little old. Some sites with shade trees. We didn't look around the several camping loops to see their condition. We were in the first loop and the sites tended to slope a little but not bad. We will definitely return. As a note, Texas State Parks are getting a little expensive for what they offer, IMHO.
A fine little RV park that the city provides for free. The prior 2012 reviews are accurate from our perspective. Good sized, level gravel sites. Several TV channels (antenna) and our Verizon phone and broadband worked well. Well worth a donation.
A wonderful desert campground. Excellent views. If it is hot, select a site that will put your preferred side (of your rig) in the shade. Normally that is on the east side of each of the 3 loops. Good antenna TV reception. Our Verizon services worked well. Office staff would not let us enter to select a site but did let us change from the site they initially assigned to us.
This park was a pleasant surprise compared to others in Deming we have stayed at. Clean, large, and level gravel sites. Excellent antenna TV reception. Wi-fi was very good. Office staff was pleasant and stayed a little late to wait for our arrival. Definitely a good overnight stopover. South of town about 4 miles. Rate was for Passport America.
We have used this "Resort" for an overnight stay 2-3 times. Probably not again, mainly because the selection of English language TV stations is poor, and cable TV is only available for long stays. Staff is helpful, sites are clean. There are no pull throughs but 173-183 are long enough if your overall length is about 50 ft.
I can agree with what prior reviews have offered. But, like most of the California RV Parks, this is way overpriced compared to the rest of the USA. I am not sure where one finds a cable TV connection here. Look at their online reservation site for good descriptions of the various types of sites.
A very nice campground but way overpriced for us. The rate quoted includes a $6.50 reservation fee and a $5 non-resident fee. Not a great way to promote tourism! The campground was clean, quiet, spacious and paved sites. We got all major TV stations via antenna and our Verizon phone and broadband worked great. Close to Winthrop and golf course. Most sites have a limited view of the lake.
First about the rate. We had to pay a $5 non-resident fee (how's that to promote tourism?) and a $6.50 fee for on line reservations (which had a problem so we had to call them to complete the reservation). But the east campground is quite nice. Lots of trees, paved sites, quiet, lake views. We got several TV channels and our VZ broadband worked great! We would come back!
Prior recent reviews are exactly on target. We would give it a 10 except our "perfect" spots include water views. A real plus for us is that our Verizon Broadband connected at 4G speeds! We were very comfortable with leaving our trailer here for 4 days, unattended, while we visited the San Juan Islands.
I can support the detailed comments of the August 2012 review. We stayed in site 311, not too bad as there was very little traffic the one night we were there. It is very convenient to the ferry terminal and the adjacent dinner restaurant was excellent.
From our perspective, if one averages the prior reviews from 2009 to now, you have a pretty good summary of this place. It is actually better than we anticipated for the area. We found it entirely adequate. Our Verizon phone and hot spot worked great, no TV, level sites, quiet, and the ocean on your doorstep. Cape Flattery and its magnificent views are less than 6 miles away, plus a pretty "interesting" 1/2 mile walk from the parking lot to the viewpoints. We would stay here again.
This is a fine state park, especially if you like camping in the woods within a short walk of the beach. We were in site 167, a fairly level pull through and fairly private from other sites and the road. We could get no antenna TV but our Verizon phone and hot spot worked well.
This park is pretty much as others have indicated. In our case we were in row "B" pull throughs where the sites are very close together. Almost no room for outside chairs, no picnic tables anywhere. Row "A" would be a backin site but with a lot more space. Wifi was excellent, cable TV ok, staff were great, some morning noise, great washer and dryer. The 9 hole golf was "interesting" with very tiny artificial greens, some water and tree challenges, very flat, no crowds and worth the $10 weekday rate. Close to most area attractions.
Expensive for what is was, and off season. Clean, well landscaped, friendly office staff, very small grass patio, sites closely spaced. Noisy from frequent trains. Good Wi-Fi, fair antenna TV reception.
PA rate. I can agree with the May-Aug reviews except that we found our site, 301, to be subject to a lot of road noise. But 301 is one of the sites closest to the highway. Friendly staff, clean, lots of "permanents". Cable good, couldn't get the wifi password to work.
This is an outstanding campground. Large, wide, level and paved sites. Lots of space between sites with grass. Some highway noise. No Wi-Fi, 2 antenna TV channels. Our Verizon phone and broadband worked perfectly. Water and electricity for $22/night. The John Day river is right behind the campground, but there are no sites that are immediately adjacent to it. We will be back.
We were quite happy here. We stayed in site 319, small grass patio with good table. Yes lots of sites were close together but 318-322 are very nice. Some road noise during commuting periods. Close to all that Bend has to offer. Good cable TV and antenna reception. Fair Wi-Fi. We would definitely return.
Prior reviews reflect our experience. Our rate was an early season special for a non-riverfront, 30 amp site. Sites are gravel, fairly close together, very small "patio" areas, lack privacy, lots of trees, some grass, no highway noise, great Wi-Fi and cable TV. We will come again before Memorial Day and after Labor Day.
This is about the only game in town. This RV park is a flat piece of gravel adjacent to a restaurant, a Best Western Motel and a drive in theater(!). It was clean, level, fairly quiet, treeless, plant less and featureless. It will be dusty on very windy days, a likely occurrence. Good antenna reception and our Verizon phone and broadband worked OK.
The three reviews prior to this are accurate. Passport rate shown. Excellent Wi-Fi and cable TV. Friendly staff. Close to I-70 but not very noisy for some reason. Great steak restaurant within walking distance. OK for an overnight stop and dinner out.
The good: excellent Wi-Fi, cable TV and office staff. The bad, dirt sites (not gravel), road NOISE, not well kept (weeds, trash, etc.) and no table at our site. We are not likely to return. Management seems to be trying to improve the place, lots of new trees planted and some undefinable cutesy structures in the center portion of the campground.
Prior recent reviews reflect our experience. Our site, 22, was owned by a very pesky cardinal who/which pecked incessantly at our truck. Sites have large concrete pads and patios, well maintained grass between well spaced sites, nice tables and fire rings. Excellent antenna TV reception, at our site we could not pick up the campground Wi-Fi signal. Sites at the end of the culde-sacs have a little more space.
Very nice as others have reported. Well spaced sites affording some privacy. Level, paved pads, gravel sites. Antenna TV reception did not include any network channels. Our Verizon phone and broadband worked well. Quiet. Trees. Some sites have an excellent view of the lake, ours J17 did not. Rate is with Golden Geezer card, or whatever it is called.
This is an OK RV park but we did not find the setting or sites to be particularly well situated. They was was little space between you and your neighbor. Cable TV was fine, but the Wi-Fi at our site was inconsistent/weak. It is convenient to historic Williamsburg. We well return if we have a need to visit Williamsburg again.
Prior reviews are spot on, although we did not have an issue with the I-74 noise. Our wifi was very week, site 70. My guess is that there is only one antenna, at the office. My guess is that sites closer to the office will be quieter and have stronger wifi. Cable TV was excellent. Our rate included one night (out of two) of Passport America.
Rate is for Golden Age. This is one of our favorite campground. Lots of waterfront sites, many are quite private, TV reception OK, Verizon phone and hot spot OK, great campground staff, convenient to golf, shopping (Prattville) and Montgomery sites. Try Jim and Nick's BBQ in Prattville.
This is an ok park. This was our 3rd stay, guess we are slow learners. Our site, 280, had cable tv that worked mostly ok, wifi was iffy most of the time, no privacy from adjacent rigs, pavement at sites and roads is in a great state of disrepair. Check staff were very friendly and equally inefficient. One person registered campers, the other two talked to each other. For our travel routing, this is a convenient stopping spot. Some day in the future, if it is not raining, I'd like to play golf at one of their two 18 hole courses.
Prior reviews are spot on. The good: cable tv, wifi, quiet, staff, close to interstate and convenience to Charlotte. The not so good: cleanliness, messy statics, sites not level, no place to outside sitting and broken down picnic table (site 12), tight turns, generally grubby atmosphere.
A nice campground, trees, lake-front sites (10-21, 24-27), 1.3 mi dirt (red clay) road just before the campground entrance which would be a mess, but probably passable, with much rain. No TV, our Verizon service was marginal. A great spot if you want to get away from it all and kick back. If you want a water front site, don't go by the Reserve America campsite map. Some of what look like waterfront sites are "swamp front" sites, can hardly see any water.
Prior reviews tell it all. One note for prior visitors, the campsite numbers have been changed. For example our wonderful site last year was 27, this year it is 102. TV reception last year was good, this year we only got PBS. Our Verizon phone was marginal, Verizon data service OK. The rate is for Golden Age card.
Nice, trees, grass with paved sites, but old. No pull throughs. Rate was for a lakefront site, non-lakefront (50 feet from the lake) was $20. Plus there is a $5 vehicle fee. TV reception was excellent. No Wi-Fi but our Verizon cell and broadband worked well. Quiet except for the invasion of boats Sat AM. We didn't stay on Sunday. Park gates close and are locked from 10PM to 7AM so don't plan on staying outside the park too late,or getting an early start! Twenty minutes or so to central Austin. We will return to take in more of what Austin has to offer.
The prior reviews generally reflect our experience. Our site, 66, was very wide and long. Cable TV was good, but no FOX cable channel and no golf channel. Good access to Midland's culture. Lady at front desk was very helpful and friendly. Laundry was small but has excellent washer/dryers. This RV park is functional rather than aesthetically pleasing. One needs to be in Midland for a reason to appreciate this park.
I didn't see this state park through the same set of glasses other had on when they were there! For a state park, this is not at all scenic. The Rio Grande can't be seen, and it is nothing more than a damp stream bed, at least at this time of year. Yes, there are trails through a not very interesting desert. Views from the campground include a number of run down homes and structures. Sites are quite close together with little privacy but do have concrete pads and a shelter/ramada. If there is any wind it is very dusty (as at most desert campgrounds). Fairly good antenna TV reception from El Paso. We won't be back.
Although we stayed only 4 nights when asked they put us in a nice site between park models. Level with a large concrete pad. Much better than the transient sites on the dirt next to the dog walk area. We could not get the wifi to connect. Too expensive for what it is. As others have said, this is a park for long term stay. Cable TV not available for short timers but we received all major networks via antenna. All facilities seemed excellent: pool, snack bar, bocce ball, tennis, etc.
Very friendly and accommodating staff. We stayed here so we could golf (par 58 course) and not disconnect the trailer. The sites are gravel, wide and long and generally in good condition. We did have to raise the front of the rig substantially to get it reasonably level. NBC was the only good TV channel we could receive other than a number of Spanish language stations. No I-10 or train noise! This park is owned by the nearby Cochise Terrace RV Resort which has made a number of improvements here. Restaurant and bar in the Clubhouse.
Other recent reviews generally reflect our opinion/experience. The best I can say is that it was quiet and affordable. The campground host, was a big help getting us into a spot during a heavy rainstorm. We camped in one of the few spots by the "Beer Garden". There are lots of other sites in a nearby open field, but not recommended should there be rain in the forecast.
We have stayed here several times and obviously like it. But a lot of the sites are gravel and if you are in the rainy season, if there is one in Paso, it can be messy. Also, for the price one should expect "major" cable TV. They only have a dozen or so channels and they are all fuzzy. By now they should have HDTV. We were fine with their Wi-Fi. Sites close to the roads, tend to be noisy. If entering the Park at night, the intersection of Airport Rd. and Hwy 46 is unlit and difficult to find.
For us this is a fine, full hookup campground. Close to SLO and walk to Dairy Creek Golf course. Not very many what we consider to be "private" sites, i.e, entry side of rig shielded from neighbors. Perhaps 70% of the sites would not take our 28 ft rig. Based on the Park phone message, some sites are reservable but not all. There are loads of non-hookup sites. Lots of trees and large bushes. And for California campgrounds, the price is excellent. Down the road at Morro Bay State Park it is $50 with only electricity. Only 2 TV channels.
As other recent reviews have "implied" this is not a "campground" for vacationing. We found it just fine for overnight. Yes some interstate noise, but our site (#51) was fairly level. Cable TV was good and the Wi-Fi was excellent. And for overnight stays, we don't need views.
Knowing that rains have been a recent problem in this area, I called to reserve a site that was relatively dry. They assured me that that request was no problem. Well after we checked in, it was a problem for us, but not them. Our site was a major mud wallow. The stickiest, blackest mud we have ever seen. If you stay here insist on a grassy site or be prepared for serious mud or serious dust in all the sites located in their wooded area. This campground is less than 20 miles from the Henry Ford Museum and Greenfield Village so that much is good. Staff was friendly but "full disclosure" did not seem to be included in their operations manual.
Rate shown is for PA. Our rating is relatively low because they put PA members in a sloping grassy center section. In our case this was not good since after all the serious rains they had been having we got stuck in the grassy muck at the site they assigned us. Campground staff was pleasant about pulling us out (4X4 truck only) with their tractor. Lots of seasonals around the perimeter but fairly well kept up. TV reception was marginal. No Wi-Fi. Our Verizon phone and wireless were both OK.
We liked this "no frills" park. Quiet. Nice grassy field for short timers, but no sewer connection. Pull throughs and back ins available. Excellent cable TV, weak WiFi. Pleasant staff. Our Verizon phone and broadband connection was weak and intermittent. Close to Jamestown. New owners last month, that may cause some changes.
One's rating for this campground would depend on what site you are assigned. Campground has both open grass and wooded sites. Ours, #8, was on a hillside but was fairly level. It was fairly private with only one RV behind us, a seasonal. Friendly staff. Good cable TV, no Wi-Fi. Warning, there is a 10'10" (As I recall) bridge on CR 61, west of Hwy 22 so if you have a relatively tall rig, approach CR 61 (the road the campground is on) from Hwy 22, either north or south. Rate shown is for CampClub members.
We gave this campground a relatively high rating because we had a comfortable, level, quiet, grassy site with fire ring, picnic table, excellent cable TV, and our Verizon phone/wireless worked fine. But the campground Wi-Fi seems to only work at the office/rec hall. It is old and some upgrades are needed (e.g. the cable TV connections at our first assigned site were missing.) The staff (4 different contacts) were mostly incompetent and very slow at their job but not unfriendly. We used this site to recoup from a cross country trip, do some grocery shopping and make a day trip to Albany.
I'm a little late with this review and thus I am not positive about the cost. We arrived in the middle of the flooding from "Lee" but the very gracious and friendly owner/operators found us a relatively dry site. We spent only one night. No TV. I felt that the Oct 2010 review by another was accurate. We would return.
Woodsy. Lots of shade but sites have not been raked or otherwise prepared for guests. Big enough and fairly level sites. Occupied sites mostly messy. Excellent cable. Wi-Fi only at laundry and office. Staff not particularly helpful. Fairly quiet. We would not come back. Busy of course for the Labor Day weekend.
This is one of the best KOA's we've stayed. Trees, grass, definitely a campground feel vice an RV park. Excellent Wi-Fi, cable OK. Very clean and modern laundry, showers, and rest room. Friendly staff.
This campground is just fine if you are self contained and can live without good TV. Actually we found PBS stations. Our Verizon phone and broadband worked fine here. We stayed in site East 13 which is right on the lake. The dirt trail entrance is fine and just past the camping site is a look to turn the rig around. Quiet. Grass, some trees fairly level. Hand water pump available next to site. There is a west area campground that we did not visit, but on the site map, the area looks good with a few pull throughs. Check out the website maps before visiting. And there really was no camping charge, I put in $1 to get the page to work. It did cost $8 to visit Bond Falls, which are beautiful.
This is a good state park campground. Paved roads to the State Park, dirt roads within the campground. Some tight corners for larger rigs, but we were fine in our 25ft TT. Quiet, private sites, not very level. Great trees. Managed to get a few DTV channels. Our Verizon phone and broadband worked fine. At $30/night including a $5 vehicle fee it is not a bargain, but we'd definitely come back.
This is a Forest Service campground. Very nice paved access roads and about 10 pull through sites. Tables and fire rings at most sites. Quiet but immediately adjacent to the Lolo Pass Highway 12. 15 miles west of Lolo. Nothing fancy but a great outdoor experience. You need to be self contained but there are pit toilets and water spigots available.
This campground would have been great except for the very noisy highway traffic. Lots of trucks roaring by, just 100 ft or so from our site. Good sized gravel sites, a few smallish trees, grass between sites, golf course. Wi-Fi did not reach our site, #19. Our Verizon hot spot worked fine. Several antenna channels, both Digital and otherwise. We probably won't return. But there are not many alternatives in this part of Washington!
Our site, 19, was great and worthy of a 10. But most other sites seemed a little cramped, thus the overall 8 rating. Campground was clean, lots of trees, grass where there was space, sites paved. Great cable TV. No Wi-Fi but our Verizon broadband hot spot worked in the mornings, not evenings?? No fire rings. Close to I-90 but very quiet. Definitely a "go back to campground".
Narrow closely spaced, gravel sites. A spot of grass between. Sites close to the office get a lot of noise from a truck stop just across the street. Some noise from adjacent airport. Convenient to Bellingham. We had some sketchy appearing neighbors but quiet. Friendly staff at check in. Lots of early evening noise from staff blowing debris from roads. Good cable TV and Wi-Fi.
This is an excellent RV park, the best in the greater Boise area (we live about 125 miles from here.) BUT, the office staff is usually friendly but not very competent. Our site this year on the westerly end of the campground had no WiFi signal. A prior user of this site had spilled sewage and it had not been cleaned up. Most of the sites have the sewer hook-up towards the front of the site. Not convenient for rear connections. The cable TV was noisy and not all of the channels matched the campground guide. Antenna TV is excellent for local, network channels.
We love this State Park! Where can you camp overnight and play 9 holes of golf on a pretty fair course for $26? There are no site hookups but the TV reception of Salt Lake City channels was excellent! (We use an inverter.)
I can generally second earlier reviews. There are several sites with trees and a little grass, others just gravel. The whole park is slightly sloping but not too bad. Cable TV was good. Wi-Fi did not work at all for us. Our Verizon phone and hot spot worked fine. Close to the highway but quiet, no trains! This is a Camp Club USA site but not Fri-Sun. For us this is fine place for an overnight.
This is a fine desert type campground (i.e. not much grass or mature trees.). Yes, noise from nearby highway and trains. Very pleasant office staff. We didn't try the breakfast or wifi. Cable TV weird, limited to 4 channels and we didn't get one, CNN. No network channels. But we would stay here again (not many other nearby choices...)
I will second the prior two reviews, but one needs to be aware of how convenient this campground is to DFW airport. All day long one is visited with the sight and sound of airliners. Other than that, this is an excellent RV park! For some reason we could not get NBC TV, other network channels were excellent. And the WiFi worked very well for us over a four-day period. For the best burgers and fired pickles ever: try Big Daddy's across the lake at Scotts Marina!
This a typical very nice Texas State Park. We like sites right on the water and this campground does not have any. From a few sites you can see the lake. Lots of trees, great concrete pads, but mostly sand around each site, mixed in with some grass. Tables at each site. Sites are well spaced from each other. We got no antenna TV reception but our Verizon phones and hot spot worked fine.
We camped here after they have add considerable rain and wind. Lots of treefall and mud around. Only 3-4 other campers here. No cell or internet access via my Verizon Hot Spot. A few TV channels. Heavily wooded, little sun gets through. Paved, narrow sites, chairs had to be placed on the dirt/mud. To dark and dreary for us. We won't be going back.
This is an older RV park. Our main issue was noise from the adjacent freeway/interstate. Reception staff was excellent. Our site was fine but not much space to set up our lounge chairs. This is not a bad RV park, just too noisy for our tastes.
The campsite we stayed is now on our top 10 list! The campground is primitive to some extent in that we only got about 10 antenna TV channels and our Verizon phones and Wi-Fi Hot Spot worked 95% of the time! (Insert Happy Face here) At the entrance gate, ask to select your own site. If you like waterfront sites, these are some terrific ones to select from. We used Golden Age card, otherwise the rate is double.
With the PA discount this RV park is a good value. We found the "amenities" to be less than good. The cable TV was noisy so we used our antenna which was excellent. The WIFI did not reach our site even though we were within 10 rigs of the office. The shuttle service into the French Quarter does not run frequently and we had to take a $30 taxi ride back to the park. The park tended to be a bit noisy with workers leaving in the morning and revelers returning very late at night. The later probably goes with the New Orleans "ambiance". Having said all that, we would stay here again.
This RV park has no charming features. It is OK for an overnight stop. Site #32 is next to a messy, wind-chimed site. Everything gravel and dusty. Cable TV was so-so, no digital channels, Wi-Fi was good. Staff at front desk was friendly and helpful. Local golf course is inexpensive, and you get what you pay for! We will probably not return. We only came here because it is a Good Sam park.
As others have noted, this is a parking lot. Staff was friendly, but not particularly helpful. Our cable TV hookup did not work, they said, "Yes, there are some problems.". But we saw no unleashed dogs. The sites are all side by side, each having only on 30A and one 50A plug. So if you need one or the other, you are out of luck. The adjacent golf course could really be spectacular, but it is in serious need of improvement, and the management is working on that. But we played, $25 for 18 holes including a cart. Very fair. We will probably go back, just for the golf.
Camp Club USA rate. It is nothing fancy but sites were reasonably level, plenty long but sewer connection was in the front area, not good for our rear connection. It has very nice and helpful staff. There was no problem with a late checkout after a delayed round of golf. :-). The price without a discount would be a little high for us, i.e. about $42, for what it is.
PA rate. Nice enough for a 1-3 day stopover. Our site, 22, was level, and plenty big enough for our 25 ft trailer with a small slide. Some freeway noise, excellent TV and Wi-Fi. We would come back if in the area again.
We like this campground. This is our 2nd stay. It is quiet, close to everything. No glitz, but level sites next to the river, good Wi-Fi, good cable TV, great sunsets, QUIET (no trains), affordable golf, and not busy. We will be back next year.
I'd like to second the review made in April 2010. I did not give this a 9m or 10 because it's just not a very attractive RV park. The surroundings are not very pretty. A solid RV park, not a campground.
OK, this is not a luxury RV park, campground, etc. But it was generally quiet, at least until the neighbors started to go to work at about 6AM. We bailed out of here, due to very high winds and were happy we did. At Passport America rates this was a fair deal. Trees were stressed and small, there's no grass, and it's not particularly clean. Site are dirt/gravel but level. At $34 per night, it's way too expensive! This is a fine place to stay for a night, but not for a vacation!
We found this campground to be excellent. A very attractive setting, mostly level grassy sites and lots of huge old trees. It is quiet. There are a couple of farm roads adjacent to the campground with very little traffic. Has a very friendly and helpful caretaker. Price included a NE State Park fee. No TV reception for us.
This is a no frills campground that is free. It is about 5 miles north of Columbus on the north shore of Lake Babcock, actually a reservoir. The sites are level, mostly gravel. 20 and 30 amps available but no water or sewer connections. There are big trees and most of the sites have good views of the lake. The closest sites are perhaps 50 feet from the water. No TV reception. No road or train noise.
This campground is difficult to rate. It is a "campground" rather than an "RV Park". Has lots of trees, and is quiet. Some of the sites might be tight for big rigs, so it might be good to walk to the assigned site in advance. The staff was a little "offish". When we were here, the weeds (not grass) had not been mowed since the prior season. One good thing, the WiFi was excellent. Antenna TV reception, for us was iffy. NBC was good, CBC bad, etc. Downtown Des Moines is about 14 miles east. We would come back, probably.
We stayed two nights. Passport America rate. As others have noted this campground is sandwiched between I74 and a train track. It is noisy but we acclimated ok. It is very well maintained, lots of grass and mature trees. The site was level. The WIFI signal strong but ours dropped out frequently. There are ooperative staff. We got the major networks on antenna TV.
The rating one gives of course, depends on what one likes. This park is very quiet. It's full of trees, little sun, in April not so good. The sites seem relatively easy to get into and fairly level (at least 23 was). But we found this campground a little boring, no views or waterfront sites. We only saw a ranger once, when he collected our money. Not our favorite, but not bad either. There's a nice golf course a mile away.
We liked this campground. It has large roomy, level sites. Nothing fancy, there was a nice pond behind our site #28. Quiet. And the golf course across the street is the best value we have found in 48 states. It is beautiful, greens were a bit rough, but for all day on 27 holes for $10, who is going to complain. Located close to Plains, the GA Museum of Rural Telephones, etc. Give it a try! We used Passport America so for $40 we got two nights of camping and 18 holes of golf!!
The previous review is accurate. Before we arrived, and during check-in I asked if the cable TV service was working (we needed to watch the Masters). The first site had no operating TV so we had to move to another. The upsetting thing was they told me when I asked for another site that they knew the TV was not working at our first site! Upsetting. We won't be back.
Avoid this campground unless you are desperate! Cable TV didn't work for us. Over priced at $30 by at least $10 per night. Site level, some grassy weeds, pleasant staff, once you found one. But it is reasonably close to King Ranch tour and museum.
Wow! I cannot support other higher ratings from other reviewers. We were assigned to one of the truly "Ancient" sites, sewer on one side, power and water on the other. After getting relocated to a site with hookups all on one side, all we had to deal with was long power and TV extension cords, sand (no grass) all around the rig, and raucous birds in the "Ancient Oaks" around us. We will not be returning this truly ancient, ex-KOA campground. By the way, the cable TV was not HS and frequently was noisy. And the Wi-Fi really did work, about 25% of the time.
We liked this campground. Our site backed up to the marina with a nice view of the boats. On the other side was the commercial fishing harbor with its boats. Site was level, gravel, concrete pad, table, no fire-ring. Nice ambiance, but the sites were a little too close together for our liking. If you golf, there is a good 9 hole course nearby. Great value!
We liked this state park. We camped on the "bay" side. Sites are large, level, grassy. No fire-ring at the site. Had a picnic table. Our site backed up to the tidal basin. Good birding from our site. Our cost included a $5 park fee.
