Park service added electric (30A) and water to a dozen or so sites. Water is turned off in winter however there is a spigot available by the restrooms. Lower # sites are closest to the ferry dock which was enjoyable to watch pull in and out. Ferry rarely blew its horn and generally doesn't run from 9pm to 7am (winter). Fort Casey is a nice walk up the trail away and has spectacular views of the Strait. Coupeville is less than 10 minutes away and has propane, gasoline, diesel and markets. First Street Grill was very good for lunch and dinner. Our family has spent every Thanksgiving camping here for over 36 years.
I put that they are not kid friendly because there is no playground and they charge $3 for every extra person over the age of 3. The sites are very close together (your front door opens into/onto the neighbors hookups) and the grass is usually dead between spots. The office staff is very nice, the bathrooms and laundry are very clean. Laundry is very affordable and the pool looked sparkling. The Mexican food at Si Casa was delicious and the Dutch Bros. Coffee is a short walk away. It is a good location for Medford and Ashland.
This rate was a Passport America rate. The managers are very nice and accommodating. This park is an excellent spot to stay the night as you're traveling I-5. The diner at the Petro 2 station has excellent breakfasts. We've stayed here before and noticed the improvements they're making to it.
This is a very clean park with fairly wide sites. There was room in the pull through sites for our 42' fifth wheel, dually TV and extra car. There is lots of grass between sites, level sites. We didn't notice much noise after sunset. We didn't find access difficult but don't try to get to 13th street from Gertz St. There's a concrete island that you can't negotiate with a rig of any size.
Rate quoted is nightly with GS discount. This is a very clean park, restrooms were like new (on the upper CG at least). Friendly managers, good location, shopping and food close by. Deluxe spaces "up top" have a nice grass area in front and extra parking. They have back in and back to back parking as well as pull through. There is no playground or bicycle riding in the park which is why I wouldn't call it "kid friendly". There are a a lot (70 % ?) long term residents but they have very nice rigs and are probably just working in the area.
I hate parks that take advantage of weary travelers and this is one of them. Even at 9 o'clock at night I could tell this place was nothing to look at. What's worse is the first thing you read on the sign is "There is NO "No hookup" or tent camping rate". The rate is $33 for 1-2 persons and $3 each for anyone over 3 years old. THAT is why I put it is not kid friendly. There's not much else to say except it's the only game in town and they seem to know it.
This is a fine campground to stay in, there are a lot of site choices with pricing that varies. We were given a site in row D that was a 30 amp site. The next site to us was a 50 amp and the sites in row E were twice as wide. Just ask (or specify) what you want, they'll probably have it. The pool is seasonal and closes 9/15. There is a game room, mini golf and gift shop. Very nice place.
This is a very big (and confusing) state park. Their website doesn't do the best job explaining where the RV camping is. We stayed in the Pronghorn CG. There were a few pull through sites, though we didn't see them when driving around. It would be nice if there were map available. It is very quiet, this time of year. No hookups. There is a dirt road that leads to the North of the state park. It is on our GPS Nav system and took us all the way to Highway 14 close to the Devils Tower turn off. It was a beautiful drive through the hills, though not one to take your trailer on.
This was a great find for us. The horse corals and parking is in the East end of the campground. Far enough from us that we didn't hear anything, yet could enjoy watching the riders come and go on the road. Horse people are good people we have found. The campground is situated on a slope so there are views of the valley. Deer frequent the CG. The only drawback we found was the price of the laundry (which isn't a big deal to many that don't full time). We found the $2.00 per wash and $2.00 per dry excessive. The owners are super nice, the CG is very clean, the sites are spacious. We'd definitely stay here again. Thanks!
We came to the area specifically to see Chimney Rock and the visitor's center. This campground is right down the road from the V/C and has great views of the Rock. To be honest, it is just a place to park with full hookups and rest. The rate was reasonable and the location perfect. Trains are a bit loud, but that's when the earplugs come in handy.
Our family had a wonderful time here. The owners and staff make you feel like a family guest, rather than a customer. We ended up staying over a week because our kids had such a good time, the entire grounds were so well kept and the ambiance so nice. There are only 4 RV sites, so you may want to call ahead. The sites share a power so they are paired but we had the place to ourselves for half the week in late August. It's not well known that they have RV camping. There is a dump station but no sewer at the sites. The visitor center restrooms are new and very close. There is a storm shelter just in case. If you're coming to De Smet for the Laura Ingalls Wilder history, you have to stop here. If you have kids, it's a MUST stop. Their family approach and hands on is the best we've seen in over a year of traveling the country with our young sons.
We found this campground on Google maps and were hesitant to use it because there were no reviews on this website for it. Since it was only 2.5 miles south of town we decided to check it out. Being along the river sounded like a plus. We are very glad we did. It's an older campground with lots of large shade trees (if that's what you want, they have other sites with smaller or no trees). There is a playground for the little ones (ours loved it...we were right next to it). The current owners put in a concrete go-kart track with half a dozen Honda powered karts. When we read they had Go-Karts, we were a little leery due to experiences with other tracks close to RV parks we've stayed at. The noise and smell wasn't something that sounded appealing to us. But we were pleasantly surprised! The track is away from the campsites and doesn't open until 6:00pm. It was a blast zipping around so close to the ground, you have to try it! The sites along the river are for tent campers. The river averages 12" of depth (at least in August) and was great to just wade out to and sit down in! There is a one-of-a-kind (in the U.S.) steel bridge adjacent to the campground (Bryan Bridge). The owners were very nice and accommodating. They run their campground by the Golden Rule, and without a list of other "rules" that so many campgrounds must unfortunately give everyone these days. We really appreciated the neighborly approach at this campground. The campground experience was a 10, with the cattle grazing nearby, the two horses on the property next door, the river view, the bridges, etc. The amenities are few, no pool, only 1 washer and dryer, older showers and building, however the current owners are redoing the place and putting a lot of work into it. They've replaced most of the electric and water to the sites already. After setting up camp, we looked at the other campgrounds in the area and we very glad we picked this one, nestled down in a valley, close to town, on the river and with wonderful owners. If you're coming to Valentine to float the Niobrara River or see the refuge, this is a great campground to stay! (And no we didn't get paid to say that, we just really liked it and since there wasn't any reviews, we wanted to be thorough).
This park was recommended to us by another camper. By the name of it (as listed on the internet) you'd never know they had RV sites. The owner is very nice and the sites are level, concrete and spacious. There are no amenities here however. There is a city park close by with a pool (huge pool that looks like fun) and there are laundromats close by. It's about 20 minutes down I-55 from the Gateway Arch and close to Grant's Farm (where Anheuser Busch keeps the Clydesdales). There is a charge of $3.00 per person over two people.
This is a very nice, family friendly KOA. There is a lot to do for the kids (swimming, fishing lake, pedal boats, mini-golf, horseshoes, playground, outdoor chess set). It's very close to the National Corvette Museum and the GM assembly plant. Also close to Lost River Cave (recommend doing) and Mammoth Caves (a day or two there). Shopping is close by (Lowes, Kohl's, Wal-Mart, etc). The sites in the F300 section were VERY nice with gravel drives, decorated concrete patios (very large), wrought iron table and chairs, as well as picnic table, bench and fireplace. LOTS of shade in these sites also and they're all pull through. They are close to the office, swimming pool and playground. There were 4 washers and 4 dryers. $1.50/$1.00. We had such a relaxing good time here, we extended our stay twice. It would be a 10 if they took a little better care of the pool. It wasn't anything to keep us out of it, but with the number of people using it, I would have liked to see them clean/treat it more often.
This was just as other's have said, a really great find. There is a swimming beach, next to the playground. There are some sites that share a common driveway in case you're camping with friends and family. It's close enough to downtown but far enough to be "in the woods". There area few geocaches in the park to do also. There are a few laundry machines, though we didn't use them. The sites are all spacious and nestled in among the trees.
This was the best campground we've stayed at during the last 10 months and 45 campgrounds we've stayed in. There is a very comfortable feeling here and the owners go out of their way to make it that way. The grounds are meticulously landscaped and clean. Minutes after a rainstorm, there was no standing water anywhere to be seen. The drainage and foliage is excellent. There is some highway noise during the day from Highway 321 to Gatlinburg, but it wasn't obtrusive (my wife didn't notice it at all). There is plenty of room for big rigs (ours is 42' long plus the truck). You can't go wrong staying here, period.
Although pets are allowed, this is not a dog friendly RV park. If you want to let your pet get some fresh air, be prepared to sit with it while it's outside. Don't even go inside your rig for a few minutes or one of the questionable looking permanent residents will tell the owner on you. It is not particularly kid friendly either. It is extremely crowded with only the front of your space to park your tow vehicle or toad (there is visitor parking on the far East side of the campground). We had to move our truck twice in the week we stayed to allow our neighbors to leave or pull into their spaces. The interior roads are gravel while the spots are two strips of level concrete. The park is for sale; however, the owner, Bill, is still keeping appearances up. There is one over/under washer dryer ($1.50 ea) in the bathroom. You have to pay Bill first to use it as it is not a commercial model. When he closes the office, he turns off the breaker to the w/d so get your laundry done early! The train tracks are an unobstructed 1,000 feet behind the park. Worst part is the tracks are on a curve and when steel wheels take curves on steel rails...they squeal and screech. We would not stay here again. It is too crowded (sites are 18 feet apart) and with the extra vehicles, it's really hard to maneuver around.
We really enjoyed this park. The "B" sites are very shaded and 30 amp. The "C" sites are in a grassy field and have 50 amp service but little shade. We backed our 42 foot 5th wheel into B6 and were surrounded by lush trees and bushes. We'd suggest sites B1-B6 if you can use 30 amp service. The playground was very nice for the kids and fireflys floated around the grassy field each night. The five lakes are filled with turtles and fish. You can't go wrong picking this park. There are half a dozen geocaches in the park too! There is a laundromat and grocery about 8 miles away. Downtown Greensboro is about 15 minutes away at most. The 30 amp sites are $19 for non-residents, 50 amp sites are $20 for non-residents. Residents get about 5 dollars off (assuming resident means NC).
This is an old campground carved out of the dunes many years ago. The buildings and hookups however are modern and worked great. There are so many sites you can surely find what you're looking for. We made a reservation online so our check in was less than 5 minutes. It's very close to the Edgar Cayce center and about 10 minutes from the Boardwalk. We'd certainly stay here again.
This is an extremely well run campground. The grounds are diligently maintained, nicely landscaped and immaculately clean. The sites are very level, all of them circle the lake (with fountain and fish). There are acres of grass throughout the park. The laundry is very clean, 4 washers and 4 dryers ($1.25/1.00). The store is well stocked, they have a pizza stand on-site in case you're too tired after driving. The owners are very nice and have put A LOT of thought into the campground. Signage is excellent. Pay wi-fi worked excellently. They have a playground and mini golf for the kids. There are two hydrobikes and a paddle boat for the lake. This would be an excellent park for a family reunion. They have two large screen pavilion rooms, motel rooms, tent spaces and of course, RV spots. It would be a 10 if there was shade but that will take some time for the trees to grow.
This is a GREAT park if you have kids. It is the nicest campground we've seen in 45 stays over 16 states. There are a good amount of "shared" spaces, which is perfect if you're camping with friends, but if you prefer more privacy, there are plenty of spots. Just call ahead and reserve one. They DO reserve specific sites (we didn't have reservations and had to move in order to stay longer). It's only 10-15 minutes from downtown Charleston (beautiful city!), and about the same from the beach. The Charleston Tea Plantation is about 25 minutes away and very worth visiting (if you like that kind of thing). The park has great walking/biking trails, an off-leash dog BEACH (yes, they can dive in the water all they want), a good playground for kids, a splash fountain play area and an additional fee, Water Park which was TOO much fun. It has all the amenities full timers need (washers/dryers), showers, etc. We can't say enough about it, we loved it, even if it wasn't the most private park we've stayed in.
Very nice park in a beautiful area. It's about 15 minutes from downtown Savannah via the Harry Truman Expressway. Lots of trees providing great shade, homes for a variety of birds and lots of squirrels. There was a small herd of deer that would wander through the campground each night. Great bike riding! The nature trails are mostly shaded and nicely posted. The roads are recently repaved and very smooth. No problem with big rig access. There are two sections with 50 amp service, the rest of the campground is 30 amp. There were a washer and dryer ($1 ea) in each comfort station that worked very well. The Interpretive center is a must see. If you've never heard of a Giant Ground Sloth, you have to see it!
This is a very beautiful, little park. The lake is very peaceful and even has some gators in it lazily swimming around. When we got there, the park was nearly full and it looks a little like "trailer city" but after almost everyone left after the weekend, it was beautiful. The hosts are very nice. The Okefenokee Swamp Park is very close and worth visiting. Waycross is just 10 minutes away (Wal-Mart, etc.) There are washers and dryers in the central restroom building.
The park is very clean, most of the sites are very level. They are concrete with a gravel area to the side for your toad or TV. We had a back in site on the side, and these are a little close. The interior roads are asphalt. Staff was very nice. The pool was unheated but we braved it anyway. The private beach (300') is great for younger kids as it is on the Santa Rosa Sound and not the Gulf. As mentioned before, you can walk several hundred feet out and still be at waist level. Our kids had a great time digging in the sand, looking in the water for fish, hermit crabs, shells, etc. They have covered lounge chairs on the sand and on the deck. Another plus was that they allowed washing of vehicles and rigs here. Not many campgrounds we've found, allow this. They even have two large hose reels you can borrow if you're not parked right on one of the many well water spigots. I didn't agree with the extra $4 charge per person over 2 for each day. I don't understand their reasoning, except that they are a nice campground and much cheaper than the private parks in Destin so they can get away with it. If you pay for 6 nights, you get the 7th free. I would recommend an end site ($5 more) or the beach front sites, IF you have rear windows and/or like to sit outside. Otherwise the beach sites are very close together. Site 65 is the best in the park but it gets reserved up to a year+ in advance. Next time, we'd definitely try to state at Henderson State Park or TopSail in Destin. We've been told by many that they are very nice.
This park had the widest sites we've ever stayed in, and most every site had a large shade tree. Although they had dozens of open sites, the afterhours board only listed 3, not sure why. When we called a few days before, we were told vacancies were not a problem (which it wasn't, we only needed one site). The laundry, pool, library, video room, billards, etc. is located in the clubhouse, which is central to the subdivision and far from the RV sites. It was very clean, roomy and comfortable. The rate we paid is for Escapees, non-member rate is double. It is located on CR-28 with some traffic noisy but not bothersome at all. The park is acres and acres of grass and trees, very pretty.
We give this park a 9, keeping in mind there are no amenities. It can get very swampy when it rains, especially the East end site of Row 2. There are a lot of fire ants around so just be aware. The views of the equestrian center were beautiful (okay, not the center itself, but the horses were). We pulled our 42' trailer over the railroad tracks and made use of the roller mounted under the bike rack, but other than that made it okay. If you're coming from the North, we don't recommend taking Mckinley to get to River Road, it's not a good area of town to go through (IMO). Continue down I-10 to College which will take you over the railroad tracks but it's a better drive. The check in for the RV Park is in the Equestrian center office and can be a walk. You might want to pull in there first then go get a site. They don't assign sites, just pay and go. There is a dual dump station and rest rooms with showers but the laundry is locked up. The park is very quiet.
I really liked this park for it's efficiency, location, amenities, upkeep and the staff. Judging by the daily turnover and quality of rigs that stay here, I think many others agree. We stayed 5 nights so we could tour the battleground (3 miles away), visit the vet (Vicksburg Vet Hospital- very nice folks), see some mansions, etc. The kids liked riding their bikes and scooters around. The park is on a gentle slope so front to rear leveling was required but no big deal. I liked that you could choose between 30 amp and 50 amp. That saved about $5.00 a night. The two free breakfast buffets tickets saved us even more, and the buffet was good. If you get a players card at the casino and earn 50 points, they comp one of your nights stay (either in the hotel or RV park). They have propane on site and since we had to leave, the fellow brought the tank back to our site and secured it with our dog cable even! Very nice touch. All of the staff we met were very, very nice. The pool is heated and very clean, we enjoyed a few evenings of splashing around. It is 4 ft deep all over. There are two washers (dbl capacity) and two dryers. They are clean and worked well. They run this park like a hotel. You pay when you check out and can charge things to your site, just like in a hotel. It is well lit and they have security that drives around many times an hour. There are no dumpsters, but the there are trash cans throughout the park. Just lift the lid to the container to put your bag in. The entire edge of the park is for a pet walk and it was very clean. Grass is throughout the park and around it (lots of rain in these parts). Overall, a well maintained, well run, conveniently located park. They even have a large lot next to the park for overnighters (I believe this to be the case).
Our rate reflects the community water and electric hook up sites. We were there Spring Break week, and the full hook up sites were reserved. There is a lot of room between sites, fire pits, bbqs and picnic tables at each site. There is a large playground with the usual playground equipment. It was in very good shape. Teh kids loved playing here with the other kids on spring break. This seems to be a very popular park for the locals for good reason. It is very close to "Pops" on Route 66 in the town of Arcadia, just a few miles East. Pops is a burger joint, convenience store, gas/diesel station that has the largest collection of bottled soda pop for sale that we've ever seen. There are hundreds of different brands of soda, sodas of every imaginable flavor. Food was good and the ice cream sundaes were delicious.
Another great NM State Park! It's about 12 miles south of Alamogordo and 4 miles East of the highway, up the slope of the mountain (great views of the sunset). It's nestled against the mountain (sorry, forgot the name of the mtn.) but the hike up Dog Canyon looked great. There is a grotto at the top, see the visitor center for details. If you can, call for reservations and you'll get the top most (closest to visitor center) sites. They are also the largest and most level sites. I have heard it costs an extra $10 to use the reservation system (!?) but if you're staying more then a few days, it's worth it. The bathrooms are spotless and the showers have very warm, bordering on hot water. We found this a great park to use to see the White Sands and the Museum of Space History.
Very nice State Park. The bathrooms were heated and very clean. It gets a 9 for a campground as a State Park but keep in mind it doesn't have sewer hookups or laundry facilities. The site are level for the most part and access is very easy. There are plenty of non-hookup sites you can dry camp in while waiting for a hook up site to open. During the rainy season, the road into the campground can wash out, trapping those inside or keeping those outside, out. We had to wait for 3 days to get into the park. The views are beautiful, there are several geocaches in the park and the walks are great. Local history and ruins were interesting. It is about 20 minutes from Tucson via surface streets. Go to the Botanical gardens when you're in town. The food at the cafe there was delicious and the botanical knowledge you'll gain is worth it.
Interior roads are a little narrow but definitely workable for our 56 foot long truck and 5er. We had a gravel pull through that was wide enough with a grass area along side. The dog run is up front and completely grassed, very nice. The managers are very nice and helpful. There is constant road noise from the highway but with the windows shut, we didn't notice it. There are 3 washers and 3 dryers, $1.00 per load and very clean. The bathrooms were very, very clean and well lit. There is ULS diesel a block to the North, gas and propane next door to the south. We'd certainly stay here again and recommend it. It is about 10 minutes from Lubbock central.
We were going to stay at Wal-Mart but got off on the wrong exit. While figuring where we were we saw this park. It was 7pm but there was still staff in the office and he was very helpful, escorting us to our site. It is a P/A park and the $14.00 reflects that rate. For $14, we thought it would be nicer than pavement parking at WM. We took a back-in site that was at least 70 feet long and perfectly level with good gravel. The interior roads are the nicest we've seen yet in 7 months on the road. Very nice asphalt roads and wide. We'd definitely recommend an over night or two here. Many of the more permanent residents work in the oil fields.
We were very glad we choose this park as it has great views of both Old Bisbee, the Lavender Pit and is within a 4 minute walk of the town. It is a circular gravel lot and the sites are sort of close together. The manager was very nice and everything was in perfect working order. The Wi-Fi is new and they are working on getting a stronger signal. We found a weeks worth of activities in the town and were very glad to be so close. We'd certainly stay here again.
Camping here in winter is the best bet! We had the CG almost to ourselves for the 6 nights we were here. The "B" loop is the only one open in winter. We were towards the end (B-50) in a pull through (banana shape) right on the river. The ONLY drawback was the gravel yard across the river on private property. The sound of cement trucks loading and churring sort of spoiled the tranquility (but it wasn't all the time). The Park was completely uncrowded and it was fun getting to go through the tunnel all by ourselves (due to our dually's width). There are water spigots throughout the park and some sites are close enough you could fill your tanks without moving (spot B-44 was one of these). The sites are fairly level and the park is very well maintained. The CG host was very nice and helpful. We are 56' long when towing our 42' trailer and were able to get around okay in the CG. We highly recommend this park, especially during the off season!
We needed an overnight stay and decided the Trading Post sounded interesting. It was worth the stop. The art, architecture, bridges and shopping were very interesting. The RV Park(ing lot) on the other hand is just that. Don't let this discourage you if you're traveling through and need a place to stop. It is workable but there are drawbacks. The overnight area (to the right as you pull in) has a "road" cutting diagonally through it that is used day and night by the residents of the trailer park to the east (behind the RV Park). We saw and heard a few loose dogs running around and barking at all hours (wear your ear plugs and you'll be fine). The electric box is coming apart and I had to use one hand to hold the circuit breaker and the other to turn it on. It is all dirt and slopes street side to curb side. But for the price, the shopping/dining (mostly meat dishes and mexican), the 30 amp electric (we didn't try the water) it's okay.
This turned out to be our favorite park because of it's size and atmosphere. We were here in the off season so we had no trouble getting in, but you'd probably want to make a reservation in the Spring/Summer. The managers were exceptionally nice. The park is easy to get to off of Highway 101 on the East side of town. It's close to everything in Sequim. They have a nice rec room with billards, ping-pong and comfy chairs, along with a kitchen you may use. The laundry is on the small size (only 3 washers) but very clean. The restrooms are clean. The Adiago (sp?) coffee shop is a must do! It's about 1000 feet to the East and staffed by very helpful and nice women. The coffee is delicious!
We're giving this a 7 because it has most of what you'd want in an RV park HOWEVER, if you're camping in a BIG RIG, you should be aware. The park was built in 1986 before 40+ foot rigs and multiple slide outs. We were put in the 45' "bus" spot but still hung into the street a few feet. This wasn't a problem because this spot is at the end. They are putting in 50 amp service but they ran into some problems and those sites were closed for now. The park is very convenient to Highway #1 and shopping. The wifi was non-existent for 7 of the 9 days we were there, yet their resident "guru" insisted on showing me how his laptop had service. This was very frustrating given that many of the other residents I ran into, could not get on their network either. Toward the end of the stay, we did get on but reception at the fringes of the park (where we were), was impossible. Overall, it is expensive but the best RV Park option in Vancouver from what we heard by several people. The laundry is very clean and large but expensive. Some of the dryers did not work. The heated pool is very nice and the spa a toasty 104 degrees F.
We received the Good Sam rate. The previous reviews have mentioned the watchful eye of the management and we would agree. But as posted earlier, just follow the rules and you're fine. The managers, Fred and Janell were very nice and professional. Some of the office staff could use a happy pill but they run what seems to be a tight ship. Some of the dog do-do signs were a little over the top, perhaps they could add a smiley face to them to lighten the message. Most dog owners know it's expected to pick up after their pet. (Get the do-do bag holder that zip ties to your leash, then you're never without them). I wouldn't rank this as the MOST family friendly park (play ground was very spartan and distant). I think their demographics are the upper end retiree market. To which they serve it well. There is a Shell station dispensing diesel and propane very close by. The railroad tracks are next to the lowest level (there are three levels) so you will hear the trains but they don't blow their horns around here. Most of the nightly spots are on the upper level, closest to the laundry and office. We would stay here again. It is very convenient to I-84 and about 15 minutes from the Convention Center.
This is an older park that the new owners and managers are updating. They are doing a great job. It is not the most scenic campground but very convenient and comfortable. They are putting in a 13 acre park right now with walking paths and playing fields.
Very nicely maintained park. Great bike riding/walking in park. They're adding new waterfront (pond) premium sites and just got a new Wi-Fi system. We liked it very much and our kids did too! Great coffee/sandwich/gift/ice-cream store too!
