Nice clean park - sites level, view was gorgeous overlooking lake and fields. Very nice people, escorted to our site (although we could see it) and really friendly. Picnic table at each site. I have to point out just two negative things that I would didn't care for - one, if you have a dog you pay $2.00 each; they seemed fine with it and nothing negative mentioned but the charge was just slipped in (to me, they are family); and second, the water wasn't the best! It was VERY well smelling and looking; it was rusty in the toilet bowls and sinks. We were glad this was the last stop coming home because we really rinsed all the lines & water heater. Now this might not bother others, but it would make me think again about staying here again, maybe I shouldn't have mentioned this, but want you know about this. It's too bad, because I 'remember' after the fact, it's NOT their fault, the whole area isn't in the best water table that we all take for granted. Otherwise, they've put a lot of work into the park, it's clean, nice and handy - quiet and pretty.

I wanted to stay here because it's the FIRST and ORIGINAL KOA-where they started. It was nice, quiet and we were in one of the older sites I think. It was a little tight and cramped, we had curbs to deal with backing in and made it a little harder (but when I called, that is all they had available was back in) - so call ahead! It had a fire ring, permanent picnic table-stone, swing, flowers; cable & WiFi. It was a nice park and quiet enough although I could hear the refinery during the night. I would stay here again, but call ahead and ask for a pull through. Sites Level and they have nice grass throughout park, and they had some trees between sites to give privacy. I think a little expensive, but that's KOA! We stayed one night passing through.

Very nice park - as stated by other people - it's a Park! Lovely flowers all over, big pots of flowers (not in your way) and sites were all big and level. It was clean and spacious, friendly help when calling or checking in. Cable was good, WiFi was good, shaded spots many of them with mature trees. My husband said one of the restrooms was new and all ceramic (spotless) and the other one was a little older but just the same as spotless as could be! We would definitely stay here again, we were only passing through for one night., but would consider staying longer if in the area next time.

The park is lovely, it's built on a 'hill' so there are levels. There's grass, mature trees and we had one of the sites backing up to the river, it was beautiful looking out our window. One word of advise: read your reservation carefully. They say check in is 1pm - THEY MEAN IT! (I understand, if you call ahead it's not a problem, but we were met at 11:45a.m. and told we couldn't check in until 1pm and town has a nice place to wait). The first impression wasn't good, and rather curt ~ but then they warmed up and they're busy around their all the time! They take a lot of pride in the park and watch everything. Some of the sites were on gravel (not all concrete) but it was fine for us, and they escort you to your site and help you. We walked and looked through the park, we didn't have a use for the showers or the laundry but appeared just fine to us. And they have a Spa/Hot Tub. We would stay here again - very convenient to the town of Leavenworth and all the activity.

I would highly recommend this park, and we would stay here again. Everything was 'clean,' and sites were really spacious, and each site had a permanent concrete fire ring and aluminum picnic table. There are 4 loops to the park . Had I known when looking ahead at the park, I would have looked more closely and figured to be in one of the back loops. The highway and train noise is plenty, and our first night we heard it all. After that it didn't seem to bother us. The cleanliness and location far out weigh any of the noise. All asphalt roads and loops through the park makes for nice clean stay. They had great WIFI, and Cable-TV reception was so-so. Beautiful, green, grassy park and well maintained, and there is a remote card for entry after park hours of 9:00 p.m. Managers on duty were all friendly. Definitely a 'gem' of a park to stay at.

Super clean park, one of the nicest we've been in! All asphalt roads, and you park on a concrete slab finished off by asphalt. There is a picnic table at each site, and spacing is really nice between sites. It appeared to have some seasonal or summer residents. Everyone was friendly , and there were potted flowers hanging around through out the park. There are two 'ponds,' I would call them, but nicely lined with willow trees and very scenic. We would definitely stay here again if in the area. The owner/manager was very helpful and worked with us about a possible relocation (unexpected with truck problems) over a full busy holiday weekend. Very nice. Can't say enough for this park or the people. Good WIFI, good cable, quiet ,and dark at night!

We made reservations well in advance for this weekend; we had a wedding to attend further up the road to Manzanita. They are very strict when you check in and give you all kinds of information, paperwork, a 'Tide Tables' and a remote keyless entry ot the gate, that part we liked! Security is a plus while traveling. They were friendly enough, and to be honest we didn't spend a lot of time here, but I think we had one of the nicer spots (#4.) It was a unique park, with a very northwest ocean flair to it. Our spot had broads/weathered fencing all around it for privacy with some buoys & fish netting hanging, kind of cute. In the rear of our spot was a brick fireplace for cooking or bonfire. The short walk to the beach and view is right there, really nice. The map on the internet makes it look like a much, much bigger place than it is. We would love to come back and stay again here. It was quiet, dark, and nice for sleeping at night. Good central location for driving either way. WIFI was great; cable was OK.

We thought it was a really nice park. We had a sideways pull through with all the hookups right there and some trees for shade. We faced the river, and the scenery was beautiful! We heard some traffic noise as you aren't too far from the bridge, but all in all, we would definitely stay here again. Lots of nice, plush, green grass. They water at night and "you pay for it." They slip a little .98cent charge in your bill for that. BUT it was nice, especially instead of dirt and dust. Restrooms are locked and for RV users only. although we didn't use them, we did see others going in. It was a very nice park, and we were glad we called ahead during the day in the morning because as we noticed all spots were filled that evening.

Can't hardly beat the price for an overnight. That's all we did; we were trying to make some time driving and pushed further to Butte, and this is one of the parks I had read about. It's easy access to & from the highway. Our spot was OK, nothing to brag about - kind of squeezed in between two other trailers that appeared to have been staying there for a while (?). But we got decent TV reception and WIFI - important to me so I can stay in touch with the family while on the road. We didn't use the restrooms or any of the other facilities. Owner was right there when we drove in, and friendly enough and offered to not hesitate to get a hold of him for anything. Would stay again if passing through, but that's about all I'd stay. There were some permanent tee-pee's set up in front on the grass. If you had children and they wanted, I think it would be fun for them. Enough grass bordering to walk your dogs.

First let me explain, this isn't the campground we were planning to stop at, but we pretty much had to as we had truck problems 10 miles out from Bismarck and 'limped in.' I will say, they did the best they could for us, and had the foresight to book us out for a few days so we wouldn't have to move (with no penalty!). They seem friendly, helpful and I'll say that the grounds appeared 'dry' and lack of rain/water. They could use a little more gravel or pea rock for the roads, but all in all we had a nice spot, pull through, picnic table, and shade which was GREAT as it was a warm few days. WIFI worked great, and TV reception was good with antenna. We had no use for the restrooms/showers and didn't even peek our heads in them, so can't help you on that one. It was a dark campground, no trains, but we were near the end of a row and heard lots of busy road traffic. We didn't have much of a choice there again! The pool was open, looked clean and kids were using it with their parents. I would not hesitate to stay at this campground again, even by choice next time!

We've stayed here before for an overnight - although it would be a "great Family Gathering Place". We really like it, it's handy, nice and clean and very reasonably priced. Sites are nicely spaced, seemed level and mature trees and grass. We didn't have a need for the Restrooms or showers but by looking all around I have think they'd be clean. Swimming pool was open and being used but they were still cleaning it! Great place to stay and we'd stay again for sure! OH, Wi-Fi worked great, no cable but TV reception with antenna worked just fine, clear picture.

I would rate this park higher, but they aren't bashful on their price/and it reflects the discount! I think it's a little over-rated for the price, but consider where you are: busy tourist area. When we got here they put us in an area that we just didn't like because of the pines rubbing on our 5th wheel. We went back in the office and they gladly gave us another choice. We went down across a field from the office and we were so happy! Great for the dogs and walking. The view is really nice and can see back up to the office/pool area (big and well kept) and across the field. You have a 'out in the woods' feeling but with conveniences. The Wi-Fi worked great, no cable TV, antenna pulled in just so many stations, but OK. A added bonus, is they serve pancakes every morning hot off the griddle for an extra $2.50. Plus you can have bacon or sausage with them or even pick biscuits-n-gravy. We have a couple dogs, so the open green field in front was great for their running for a little extra exercise. Sites were pretty level in our tier, and spaced fairly nice apart for privacy. Very convenient to area attractions, just out the driveway and up the hill to Mount Rushmore, or a few miles back to Hill City or a few miles to Custer and Crazy Horse. Would probably stay here again.

Price reflects discount. We have stayed here before and we definitely would stay again. They are so nice and friendly. They drive you around upon arrival so you can see what is available and where you'd like to park. It's much bigger now, as they just purchased and added the lower campground that was just before their driveway. They are busy getting everything up to present, with two swimming pools, tents, cabins and still have privacy. The pads are quite level and spaced nice between sites. We had problems with Wi-Fi, only because they were working on it! Cable TV was good. It's a great family CG, and they even have a small petting zoo for kids with goats and baby calf. Would stay here again and definitely recommend it. Handy to Historic downtown, a nice golf course and other businesses along the frontage road only a few miles away.

Everything about this park is great. It's very clean, neat, they pride themselves in taking care of it, and re very friendly! Wi-Fi was good, cable TV was good, sites were quite level. The only reason I didn't give this a 10 is because the sites are 'a little close' but it works and OK for a night or two. They like dogs and you are allowed all over the park with them as long as you clean up. Plus I had read about the dog kennel: it's great!! It's a grassed in, fenced area and our two dogs had a ball running. Handy to town (be sure to eat at the Rib & Chop House: delicious) and other sites in the area. Dark and quiet at night. You can jump on the trolley too if you'd like to take the ride into town instead of moving your vehicle. I would definitely recommend this CG to anyone staying for a night/or two or passing through. We would stay again.

Our very first impression was that it was 'kept up' looking at the grounds. But understand they had a lot of rain and the summer was/IS just beginning! After a day there and sun, the lawn-mowers were out and busy changing out all picnic tables by each site. It looked great upon our return for the day out-n-about. We had a corner lot which was perfect. Dark at night, but we heard trains come through a few times at night with horns blowing, if that's a problem for you I would say don't stay at this CG. It appeared very family friendly and tents allowed up near registration/pool area. I had read they charge an extra dollar per dog, not a problem for us as the rate was cheap enough at $33 per night. The views are gorgeous being surrounded by mountains, got some beautiful sunsets, handy to town and not too far away. Wi-Fi worked good, and no cable TV but the antenna seemed to pull in good enough selection and major networks. Some asphalt and mainly gravel, level enough site. Clean laundry area if you need, only about 4 machines. Would stay here again. Friendly staff.

Very friendly owners who go out of their way to make sure you are ok with this park. When we got here the site was a touch short for us, they told us to just park our vehicle in the next site. Then we had a little trouble with the cable TV and picture on the TV. They had us try the next site too and it was perfect! OK, they said just use that and they'd get ours fixed. Wi-Fi was good and worked great everytime!! They are very helpful with any questions that you might have and it's 'the gateway to Glacier Park' just a few miles up the road. I'd say it's not a place for kids if you're looking for that (although, there is a city park across the hiway kids could use) and no swimming pool. If you want a nice, clean, well kept and spaced apart nicely, you'll like this! It's close enough to the town and other towns to see things and if you have dogs there is a nice grass kennel/run area to have them play and exercise and no fear of them getting out. I would definitely recommend this CG to anyone I know and would stay here again!! OH, there is a fresh meat market just a block away, if you'd be interested and you can walk to it.

Read reviews online and thought we'd give it a try. So glad we did. We stayed 3 nights and enjoyed the CG. Friendly check in and worked with us for a nice site, ended up with a view of the river and corner site with two dogs. They said there was swimming for them, but we didn't because of high waters. Nice asphalt road through out park, nice especially for walking. Sites could have been a touch more level but all in all it was great and sites seemed ok for spacing. They are very helpful and give you discount coupons for a beverage of your choice at about 5 different restaurants. They will even make reservations for you. Be sure to go to the Cedars Floating Rest for their prime rib or cedar plank salmon! It was delicious!! If you golf, go for the Floating Green at the "Resort." For staying at Blackwell you do get a discount, really nice and lots of fun! I would definitely stay here again if we were in the area.

The price reflects the 'extra charges' for non-resident recreation fee and a 'web fee' to make your reservation. Other than that, we loved this park! The spaces are so big and generous and you aren't on top of the next person. We had a dog and pup with us traveling and they absolutely loved the rolling in the grass and getting some running in after their toys! Each spot had a grill and picnic table, gravel level sites, asphalt roads through out. Didn't use the restrooms but to walk into, appeared clean and well kept. Workers around all the time. It was our first entrance into Washington and would definitely stay here again if we could!! The view on the River was gorgeous and saw a riverboat come through; the drive up the Gorge was scenic. Be sure to visit Maryhill Winery and get to the Hill Historic Mansion, and Stonehedge. The views are nice with lots of history and it's worth visiting them. Close to Goldendale for fuel, etc.

Location is handy to hwys and freeways; located out of town a little. We could hear planes taking off but didn't seem to mind or bother especially during the night. Park was clean, asphalt roads, concrete level pads, grass between and spaced nice. Appeared 'long-term stays' in some areas but all were friendly. Laundry facility and had a separate washer/dryer for pet bedding: which you don't see often and was really a nice feature for us. Wi-Fi and cable TV worked good. Close enough for activities in Portland and would stay here again definitely.

Loved this CG, it is just outside of the busy downtown but has a real country "woods" feeling with big pines and space between sites. Wi-Fi, cable TV all worked just great. Asphalt roads through the park, but you park on dirt (some mud with the rain) but grassy spots. Propane and diesel on site if you need. The pool appeared older, and didn't use at all. Restrooms same but saw them cleaning all the time and didn't use them, as we had ours. Enjoyed our stay and would stay here again. Was handy to towns and sight seeing.

Appearance is very well addressed and the management was really nice. Although, they didn't seem to know too much about the area when asked questions. Sites were a little shorter than would have liked (36'-5th wheel) but they were very nice about parking vehicle in the next spot over and kept us spaced apart for that. Wi-Fi, cable TV all worked good. They do have a nice Spa and laundry room area. Park is close and handy to things in the town and other nearby towns. Probably the most negative thing I can say, is the water pressure seemed to have low pressure. Other than that I would definitely stay here again if in the area. Nice grass for walking dogs.

We arrived, and probably got some of the last couple spots in the CG as it was the Rhododendron Festival weekend, we didn't know. The flowers were gorgeous! Sites were all concrete, spaced nice enough for all slides out, and low scrubs between sites blooming. Clubhouse was nice and neat, didn't use the restrooms/showers to comment on. It appears there are some 'permanent stays or longtime' but didn't bother and everyone was friendly. Quiet at night, close to everything in town. Probably the only negative part of staying here was: if you have dogs there wasn't really much for a dog walk or place to take them.

Consider where you are. The entry and location does not present very well, BUT when we checked in they were very accommodating and moved us to the pull through sites (the other couple was towing a car). The Office area was neat, clean and very friendly! Appears to have some long term residents here, but they seemed to be kept in one area. It was quiet, and the WiFi and cable TV worked great. We never used the restroom/showers so can't tell you personally how they were. The location is close enough to town and whatever you'd want or need. We would stay here again if ever passing through.

Nice park considering where you are! Sometimes there is just nothing and they were real nice pull thru and plenty of room. We stayed here just a night passing thru, but would stay here again. When we arrived there was a big down-draft of wind because it sets down below the mountains, but the scenery was beautiful and we got a gorgeous sunset picture. Never used the restrooms or showers but the building appeared well kept. Would definitely recommend this RV Park to stay at.

Pleasantly surprised after winding our way in off the Hwy by about 3 miles! It is very pretty and well maintained! It is layer out all around a 'park lake/pond' and spots are spaced far enough apart. Trees thorough out for shade and views are nice with the lake & mountains surrounding. A small Casino is right there, and meals were cheap and good. Close enough to town if you'd like. They have a nice big pool, lake you can use a paddle boat on and concrete walking paths here-n-there. Wished we had booked for a couple nights instead of just one! Wi-Fi worked great, TV was fine, and would definably recommend this RV Park to people.

As for a nightly rate we don't really know as we were guests of a party with an extra lot and we used it. The facilities are gorgeous. We were very pleased at the cleanliness and view we had. We looked at the pools, exercise room, community halls and the office area. They were all very, very nice. This is a 'gated' community and private: the entry area is very pretty/clean. The RV park is close enough to town for all activities and far enough out to be quiet and private. We WILL stay here again definitely. (We have plans for next Spring 2012 already.) You can call the Office and arrange for rental. Your rig and vehicle will sit on a concrete pad and is clean! We liked it a lot!!!

The park is in "nowhere" and it was terribly windy. We stayed here only because the other couple wanted to, and to visit the Meteor Crater. In all fairness this park was "ok" if it's not too windy. They have plenty of room to pull in and park, sites seemed fairly spaced apart. It's handy to the hwy for on and off. Didn't use the facilities so can't say how they were, although the park was clean and neat. They've planted some trees and watering is going on. WiFi worked good, and we pulled in channels with the antenna (clear).

Love this park! Close to all surrounding communities to do and see things (Jerome, Cottonwood, Sedona), plus the Casino is near for cheap meals and a shuttle upon request. It's one of the cleanest parks we've stayed at in Arizona! As soon as a rig pulls out, they're there to clean up anything that needs it: rake out the gravel and have it in tip-top shape! If you use the showers, you have to get a key at check in desk, and return when done. They clean the showers after each persons use! Laundry room is very clean and neat with an iron/board. There is a exercise room with variety and TV/video. Swimming pool is ok, but the hot tub is great! We got the weekly rate and we would definitely stop here again. It was 'repeat' for us this year! A nice find with easy access on and off the hwy.

I would drive the extra miles to stay here! We only stayed a night passing through, but would definitely stay here again. Everything was great. TV reception (clearest picture we had all week including satellite/cable), wi-fi worked great, clean restrooms & showers, nice level sites and plenty of room for privacy and slide outs, dark at night too for sleeping and no trains! It was located only about 1-1/2 miles north off of I-90, about 30 miles/minutes past Mitchell heading East. It was a nice find! !

Was very accommodating park and owners/workers. They had nice clean newly painted bathrooms and showers. Level sites and plenty roomy. Close enough to activities, yet out a little bit. The only reason we didn't rate this a 10 is because it was dry outside and the roads coming in and out were dusty and it really stirred up a cloud, other than that we wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

We stayed here 5 nights. The site we stayed in had plenty of room, well spaced, shaded and level! Unfortunately they had closed the new bathhouse and we were near the old one. They had repainted you could see, and it was clean enough but still room for improvement. There is a charge for showers, opted to use our own in the RV instead. The laundry was in a dark building, but machines worked fine, did what we needed for a few days. In my opinion, they could tear the building down and start over. BUT location was very nice and convenient to everything and everywhere. Nice people, helpful with any questions and I would definitely stay here again!! They're working on things you can see. At different times a group of wild turkeys walked through and we saw off in a distance some deer feeding out in a field. We enjoyed the dark quiet nights.

We stopped here in an 'off season' after Labor Day and the town of Medora is pretty much shut down. I had read that you should get anything you might need before arriving. "Ditto!" There is only ONE "Convenience" store/gas station in town and that's it. Very pretty setting as you drive into town. This campground should be looked at and inspected. The bathrooms were terrible with trash cans overflowing (from when?), mirrors were all splatted and filthy, I glanced at one shower and the drape was half hanging off the hooks, the sinks were terrible dirty with soap bars sitting on soiled paper towels. When we arrived nobody was around, a board with our name and a site assigned was there - it was kind of a tight back in site and not very spacious sites, if you have slide outs. When we went back to the Office around supper time to check in officially, the floor looked like it had never seen water & soap! We had cable just fine, and we connected with Wi-Fi good, and site was level enough. They could spend a little time during this off season to cut grass/clean and tidy up! The campground was located very convenient to town - but they are the ONLY game in town, so take it or leave it and make the most of it! If you don't need their bathrooms, and need a place to park with cable and Wi-Fi this is it.

When I looked online for reviews - and we decided on this park, I was surprised when I called via phone and 'City Hall' answered. It's run by the City (Parks & Rec Dept). It's a really nice little park, level sites, very clean, and excellent care given to the bathrooms & showers. Shower stalls are very spacious, tiled, and in a new building with a washer/dryer for your use on the honor system. It was convenient to things, and just across the street was a new nice grocery store. Quiet, dark nights. Would definitely stay here again and not hesitate at all!

Wasn't that easy to find, per Nuvi! You have to go on the frontage road next to the freeway and then it's a dirt road. The young gal checking us in wasn't doing any more than she had to do; I wouldn't say unfriendly but not necessarily friendly. We were escorted to our site by a man. Good level sites. This was a good stop for passing through, as we didn't have to drive far out of the way. We were put in a back row surrounded by some trees, which gave us a quiet night with no trains and it was dark. You can see they have planted and there are a number trees throughout campground. We were here on an off season time. Cable & Wi-Fi worked just fine. I have to say the bathrooms were 'old'--repainted a number of times, a few cobwebs in the corners, and the shower head was for short people! Opted to wait for our next stop for a shower. Would stay here again if just passing through.

This was a real find for us! We enjoyed staying here as it was very, very clean and well attended! It's the first time I've ever stayed somewhere that they come in after you've showered and clean the shower/restroom immediately! Laundry room is spotless, ironing board and iron set up for your use taking clothes out of the dryer. Was cheap enough for a wash or dry at $1.25 per. All sites are concrete and very level, neat & clean, dog friendly, quiet nights with low lighting, cable TV and free WiFi. Personnel is friendly and helpful. Shuttle to and from the Casino is nice and 10% discount at restaurant. Handy and convenient to places for sight seeing and shopping (only minutes from Sedona, Cottonwood, Jerome). Would definitely stay here again.

We looked this up in the Trailer Life book of campgrounds. We had mixed feelings about stopping and what to expect, but gave it a try. We both really feel we found an exceptional stop! The concrete pads were all level, good hook-ups (no cable TV if that's important to you, but antenna reception was good), good spacing between, grass between concrete pads. Appears as a new RV Park with all new young trees planted and tables, quiet and low lighting at night, other than the Casino off in a 'walking distance' away. The view is over a little pond looking towards the Casino: handy enough to walk to and have a little fun and eating, etc. NO shower house or laundry facility. Pet friendly with grass. We would definitely stay here again! No reservations, so it's a first come basis and you pick your spot and park. They said it's busy on weekends and any Holidays. All dealings right now are through the Valet Parking at the Casino.

It's a nice campground to stay for a night: it appears long-stays parked in the back rows that have more room between the rigs. We staying in a 5th wheel and by later evening, we were 'squeezed' in between, the rig next door couldn't have their one slide all the way out. It's a nice area, and a good stopping point with cable TV, free WiFi, and walking distance to a little restaurant right here handy. But it's rather dusty/dirt-flying and older, so the spaces are "very close" together especially for all new models with slide-outs, but level and price is right! Arrived and the pool was open and inviting, with kids jumping in-n-out enjoying! It's a pet friendly park and has nice grassy areas for walking dogs. They had a building for showers and laundry, but never had a need to use either.

Campground was "ok" for a night, OR if you were staying in the area and not really spending much time in the park as an activity place. Would stay here again passing through for an overnight. It's easy access on/off the freeway and to find, and filled up for the night. Quiet enough at night but did hear a train off in the distance. They had 2 buildings of restrooms/showers; we didn't use them but looked at them, old but kept neat and clean. Also a restaurant on the premises, we got mixed reviews so opted to pass on eating there, although a lot of people were walking to it for their supper. Water was good, cable TV and WiFi all worked well and no problems at all. Had some grass and was pet friendly for walking dogs.

We pulled in for a night, and if the weather had been nicer we would have stayed longer. This RV Park was nice, easy to find and get to and not noisy. There were some trains during the night but no whistles! You are near the second largest RR-hub, but it didn't bother us. Nice location to Galesburg to take in the sites. All the sites had some gravel and were pretty level, nicely spaced apart. We would definitely stay here again if in the area. Friendly and helpful owners, and it's clean and neat. No satellite or Wi-Fi if that's important to you.

We pulled in on their last open Saturday of the season: it was very full and busy. We thought a little 'pricey' for just an overnight. We could see there is lots of activity for family and surrounding area. We never used the facilities as for shower, restrooms, etc. In fact, we never really saw them: it's a big RV/Campground area. It appears they have more permanent seasonal sites down near the lake. The weekenders are all above on the different tiers/levels overlooking the lake (and trailers). On a positive note: all the sites seemed spaced nicely so you had room to spread out and your neighbor's ear was not in your window! I would stay here again for an overnight: I'd give it a second thought for the price for a number of days, plus 'if' you want activity I think this would be the place to be. Great family things to do, but yet quiet at night. No satellite and Wi-fi only if you ask.

We kind of 'hesitated' by some of the Reviews: saying people weren't friendly and Wi-Fi didn't work. We came, and people were friendly with us, assisted us to our spot and made sure that everything was OK and working. There was comment not to park on the grass as it's been raining a lot and more rain to come (which it did, just poured and we had standing water!) you could understand they don't want their grass all torn up. The Wi-Fi worked prefect for us, and they had TV connect with a cable to your rig that offered about 10 channels (ABC, NBC, weather, CNN, etc). They have a quiet, well maintained park, clean restrooms and I would definitely stay here again! Conveniently located within a few miles to Springfield to take in all the Historical Sites of the Abe Lincoln family, any shopping you would want and restaurants. Sites are level and spaced nicely apart. Easy access from the Freeway, but yet not noisy at night and dark, good sleeping.

This campground was well maintained and the people were very friendly and helpful. If TV means alot to you, you won't like it here, as TV reception with a HD Box wasn't very easy to pull in a couple channels. There was no sewer hookup, but they gladly offered to come to your site and pump you out for a small fee, if you didn't care to empty at their dumpsite on the way out. I believe this campground was once very rural as the view from many of the sites was rolling farmland with cattle off in a distance, but like everything towns spread and take away. It was a quiet night and I'd stay here again. Was easy on and off freeway but yet quiet. Bathrooms/showers were very nice and clean.

If you like being out of the way, it's a great place! We wanted to see most of Hannibal, so it was a bit of a drive. The people were friendly, had Wi-Fi, cable TV and nice bathrooms/showers. It was a quiet park, with well spaced sites and a view of what they call a lake! It appears they have 'seasonal rigs' but it didn't bother us. The time of year that it was for us visiting they also had shutdown a lot of their activities, that also didn't bother us as we probably wouldn't have used them and we didn't have children with us, but I can see it would be a fun park to stay at with children.

The owners are both very friendly and make you feel at home right away! The sites are a touch close, but they're very helpful in helping you get all set up, and they've recently added some $$'s in putting level concrete pads at each site with picnic tables. The Wi-Fi worked great everytime I tried to connect, and cable TV was nice with a visitors channel to watch. Maybe one of the negative parts of this RV Park is that it's out of town and a bit of a drive, but it's quiet and you sleep good every night! The bathrooms/showers are kept clean, but they're old and you can see they've been painted over, but they work and you don't run out of warm water. The laundry house was a real plus, and it's very, very clean with all new machines/dryers. Our main reason for selecting this park was for the free shuttle to shows on the strip: and it was worth every penny! This was our first stay in Branson and didn't know where to stay, we just choose this. The only reason I don't rate it a 10 is because of the bathrooms. I would definitely return here again especially for the value. It's nicer than a lot of parks we took time to look at.

Owners are friendly and prompt. They have a "Kampers Kanteen" that will serve a breakfast & supper at reasonable prices. Sites are gravel with grass between and picnic table/BBQ grill, not spaced far between but they space the campers giving you room between. They stated cable and free wifi - local channels you need an antenna yet. Wifi, that is 'iffy' and was very limited with disconnects constantly, I would say don't count on it if you need it. Could be because it was so windy? I say "ok" for an overnight; park is older you can see, they are making improvements and cleaning it up and the restrooms are clean and neat.

Early Season - but would stay there again in a heartbeat! Very nice, good location and friendly people. Motel in the front of the RV Park. Everything appeared clean but didn't use the restroom faculties or shower, we had our own. Nice little restaurant just a short walk and convenient to have a quick supper, homemade food for supper or breakfast.

We arrived 'early Season' in March and they said the water was a pump by the Showers that my husband hauled by buckets, they stated cable & Wi-Fi. We didn't have either and nobody was around and didn't ever show up. You register yourself and drop in a metal tube, had we known we probably wouldn't not have paid the fee for only electric. One night only in passing and don't know if I'd stay again. It appears to be an old Park and could use a little TLC. And it would have been nice to have posted phone number or pager to call for questions when you arrive.

I have to say we think they have the 'prime location' and beautiful setting of all the campgrounds around. The park is beautiful with the creek running thru it and lots of trees and very scenic. The negative part is I think the sites aren't wide enough for awnings and slide-outs, but the owners are willing to help you if other sites are available. Another plus for their location is midway between seeing everything and all the sights in the area, not too far to Mt.Rushmore, Crazy Horse, Hot Springs, Keystone, Custer and other sights. Hill City is kind of small but a good place to walk and do some uncrowded shopping and a few good eating places. Be sure to visit the Winery, that is Great! One other small negative note, I think they could attend the shower house (restrooms) a little more, they were cold when we showered in there and no heat available, and missing lights and bulbs, making it rather dark. The spouts in the showers weren't adjustable and we couldn't move them and in general the showers were a disappointment for the overall campground. The owners were very nice, friendly and helpful if you had any questions of where to go or what to see in the area. We would stay here again.

The campground is right behind the Super8 Motel but very neat and clean. Has Wi-Fi, worked OK for the evening. We stayed both heading to and from the Black Hills and it was very convenient to drive into and off the freeway (exit 332). It has a nice laundry room, outdoor pool, and bathrooms that are very neat and clean. The staff was friendly and helpful, we would stay there again definitely. Although a RR track runs right behind the campground it didn't bother us at all, the trains came just before bedtime and then again early morning, they didn't seem to be noisy other than click-click-click. Located close to gas stations, a Wal-Mart, KFC, restaurants and other stores. Be sure to visit the Corn Palace and Historic Downtown, it is interesting.

I have stayed at many KOA's and I am a little disappointed with these grounds. I would probably drive a little further than to stay here again. It must be older and the spots are closely positioned. They seem to have a lot of permanent campers and they don't seem to bother about 'howling' dogs, we are near a hound dog and some of the renters are in and out using fowl language. If I had my grandchildren or children with I would have to go to the management about this loud verbal use. We are staying for one night.

We just stayed for an evening. I think it was fine, it is older and being maintained. The bathrooms are neat and clean and appeared freshly painted. Good area for walking your dog if you have one. We would stay here again if we were passing thru. The owner was friendly with a dry sense of humor and a small gift shop. Pull thrus and quite grounds.

We would rate this high for the area. All concrete pads, with nice new aluminum picnic tables, fire pit, charcoal permanent grill, stone and rock landscaped sites. Very neat and clean with top notch hook ups in a recreation area. If you want TV, good luck unless you have your own equipment. We pulled in ONE TV station (PBS) and the bartender told us that is probably one more than other people. Wi-Fi did work, but it was 'iffy' on some days, just keep hitting your connect button. We would definitely stay here again. Oh, the other draw back is the showers are located down by the Camp Store and it is $2.00 for 15 minutes of water. There is no upper and lower campgrounds as mentioned in other readings, it is all loops now, we stayed in the D-Loop and it was a ways away from the showers for convenience. The scenery was gorgeous and you couldn't ask for any better.

We stayed for 3 weeks, and we loved it. They have a continental breakfast of rolls, coffee, juice every morning. The shower stalls and restrooms were spotless, clean grounds, friendly & helpful staff. Wondefully clean laundryroom, and great heated swimming pool. Dog friendly. We thought it was a little pricey at first, but it is very private, a little off the beaten path, quiet, dark and secure at night, especially nice for sleeping. Close enough to shopping, etc. We just booked again for 2 months next year.

Wi-fi was available, we tried it but it didn't work. It could be quite dusty during the summer or warmer and drier months. It's a new Rv Park and they are very friendly, you just drive in and pick a spot. They come around evening dinner time and collect the fees. The building for showers and restrooms were spotless! There is a hot tub and pool table also in the building. Beware if you have a dog or kids, the grass areas are full of sand-burrs. We would definitely stay there again.

Concrete pads. Neat and clean. Near highway and easy to get to and fine, not too noisy. Nice area for walking dogs. Friendly people and assistance was helpful and available. Would stay there again.
