This a big, wide-open gravel area with pull throughs marked off with log dividers. Not a bad place for an overnight stop. Easy access off of the I-10 frontage road. Good value, full 30-amp hookup for $16. We'd probably stay here again if passing through the area.

Very friendly helpful onsite Owner/Manager, directed us into our site. Nice big gravel pull throughs. Good utilities, well-placed. They gave us a special winter rate which was lower than the Good Sam Rate. One of the few RV Parks open in the winter in that area. The park is situated among tall pine trees, but they didn't encroach on the sites at all. It was a very pretty setting even in the snow. We'd definitely stay here again.

This was our second winter staying at this park, and we thoroughly enjoy our stays here. It's a small park, 11 sites, with a neighborhood feel to it. Most of the sites have small decks and hedges separating the sites. Price reflects the monthly rate.

I'm giving this park an 8 because of the lake front sites. The rate paid reflects the $21 for the lakefront site plus park admission rate of $4/person per day. The back-in site we had sloped down from the road, and the placement of the utilities was strange. Water was well behind the site, had to extend our water hose. Sewer was toward the front of the site which put it at a high point. It wouldn't drain correctly. I had to wait til we left, pull forward to get the rig higher than the sewer connection and then dump the tanks. Other than that, we enjoyed the park and the lake and would probably stay here again. We'd just be more careful choosing a site.

This park has some of the biggest easiest pull throughs we've ever encountered. Nice level gravel sites, easy access from the highway. Good value for the price. We'd definitely stay here again.

We liked this park. Easy access from freeway. Easy pull through. Good value for the price, even though we're not Escapee members. This was a perfect overnight stop. Nice level gravel sites and good hookups. No complaints.

This is a big and fairly crowded park. Good luck making reservations. We called at least 5 times and never got an answer or a returned call. When we got there the transient sites were all taken, but fortunately they could put us in one of the more permanent sites, kind of a tight 90-degree back-in. Although once we got in, there was a separate space for parking our truck, plus a concrete patio. There is a lot to do at this resort. Nice swimming pool, shuffleboard, bocci ball etc. It was a good value. Price reflects the PA rate, which is good for up to 7 days. We would probably stay here again if we had occasion to visit this area.

Easy access from I-40 but far enough off the freeway, no road noise. Nice views of the valley. Good value for the price. Nice easy pull throughs, good utility hookups. We'd definitely choose this park again if traveling through the area.

This is a very clean RV Park. It appears nearly new. Gravel throughout with long easy pull throughs. These are tandem pull throughs, but it wasn't an issue as the park was not full when we were there. Easy access from US 95 and a good value for the price. Friendly accommodating manager directed us to our site. We would definitely choose this park again if in the area.

This is a great overnight stop. Nice level paved pull throughs with good utilities. The price reflects the PA rate which had increased since our visit last year, but still a good value. Very easy access from Alt US-50. Right off the highway, but a wall blocks out all the road noise. Friendly and accommodating management. We'd definitely stay here again.

Very nice clean park with long paved pull throughs. Good utilities. Just a few blocks off of I-84. Good paved interior roads. Wi-Fi and cable worked well. We would definitely stay here again if in the area.

This park just didn't do much for us. It was OK for a place to say for a week. We chose it for it's location. The price reflects the weekly rate. It's all gravel back-in's. The roads are a little rough and have some of the worst speed bumps I've ever encountered. Quite a few long-term residents and older rigs. Nearly all sites are shady. In fact, we had to trim some low hanging branches to get into our site. Overall, not a bad place to stay, just lacked character.

This park has an unusual setup, a gravel drive around the perimeter with the RV sites alongside and parallel to the drive. The sites on the outside of the drive appeared to be mostly long term tenants leaving the inside sites for travelers. This worked OK, as long as all the sites aren't occupied. When we left, we had to pull through the unoccupied sites in front of us, as the actual roadway was partially blocked by tenant's vehicles. The gravel drive was kind of rough; lots of large sharp rocks. The $20 is the PA rate for a 50-amp RV.

This is an OK place to stop for a couple of nights. Very friendly and helpful management. They cater mostly to longer term residents, but they have several fairly new, long pull through sites with full hookups. Good utilities. The cable TV worked great, lots of channels. Didn't try the Wi-Fi as we have our own. The price reflects the PA rate. There was some road noise, but not a problem. It mostly quieted down after dark. We'd definitely stay here again if in the area.

This is a very nice park situated around Lake Afton, a very pretty lake with swimming areas, a boat dock & ramp, playgrounds and even a model airplane field. Most of the sites are electric only, but they do have 16 sites on the east side of the lake with water and electric. 50 amp is available, and there is a dump station. Drinking water is available at several locations. They also sell propane at a very reasonable price, $2.89/gal. The price we paid reflects the Senior rate for electric only. The regular rate is $11 with $1 extra if you have water & electric. We loved this park and would definitely camp here again.

This is a nice State Park. Very nice 3.75 mile paved hiking-biking trail around the lake. They have mostly gravel back-in sites although there are probably 8-10 paved back-in's which looked long enough for larger rigs. They have both reservable and non-reservable sites. If you arrive without a reservation, I'd recommend stopping at the Check Station just inside the campground and see if they will assign you one of the paved reservable sites. There are some longer paved sites in the non-reservable section also,(the last loop). Sites are electric only. 50-amp is available. The park is about 5 miles east of I-35 off of Hwy 92. It's a real roller-coaster ride getting from the freeway to the park. I'd probably stay here again if in the area.

Nice setting, but the interior roads are a little narrow and needed some upkeep. Good utility hookups. The pull-throughs are back-to-back hookups, and something I didn't realize until the morning I left was that my pull-through was a tandem back-to-back site designed for 2 RV's front to back on one pull-through drive. That's the first time I've run into that kind of setup. The $22 price represents the Passport America rate. In the paper directory, they show a $13.75 PA rate, but it's gone up. Had I known that I might have made another choice.

This is a very nice park if you get one of the back-in spaces around the perimeter of the park. Otherwise, you'll probably have back-to-back shared hookups. We got one of the back-in sites on the upper drive. It was very nice. These sites are well-spaced and easy back-ins. They have a free shuttle to the Mystic Lake Hotel/Casino.(and its not a bad walk to the casino) This is a huge casino with several good restaurants. We ate at the Minnehaha Cafe in the atrium, and it was great. We'd definitely stay here again.

Very good overnight stop. Easy freeway access. The price can't be beat. It was a $15 flat rate as it was after their normal closing date and they were using an unattended self-check in system. Their normal PA rate was also $15. The sites were easy gravel pull-through with good hookups. They even included cable TV in the discounted rate. We'd definitely stay here again if in the area.

This park worked just fine for us. Easy access, very friendly and helpful management. Easy gravel pull-through sites with good utility hookups. Nice little gravel path toward Main St. and Wall Drug. We'd definitely stay here again.

For the price (free) this is a great RV Park. It was a perfect overnight stop for us. The sites have 30 amp electric, and from what we saw, are mostly pull through. The drives and sites are gravel and a little bumpy, but pretty level, and well spaced. It's an easy walk to the restaurant/store/casino. The food's OK. We had their nightly special which was reasonably priced. Easy freeway access. We'd definitely stay here again.

We spent the summer at this park. You probably won't find a better maintained park. The sites are all large concrete pads with enough room for the RV and at least 2 additional vehicles. There are nice sized shade trees at most sites. If you're an aviation enthusiast, you'll especially like this park. It's right across the highway from a large general aviation airport and right next to the Evergreen Aviation and Space Museum.

Very friendly and accommodating management. We checked in after hours and picked our site then paid in the morning. Our rate reflects the Good Sam discount. Easy gravel pull through sites. Easy hookups. This is a great overnight stop, easy access from the freeway, just slow down for the right turn from 5th onto Joe street, it has kind of a reverse bank that has to be negotiated slowly. The park is in a nice setting with horses on one side. We enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay here again.

This is a very clean, neat appearing park. The management is very accommodating and friendly. We were given a welcome packet with all the resort information when we checked in and were led to our site which was a large easy pull-through. The sites are a combination of gravel and concrete with well-placed modern hookups. There are a fair number of permanent residents, but the rigs are mostly newer and don't detract from the neat appearance of the park.

I didn't really care for this park. It has long, narrow hilly gravel roads with tight clearances between trees and shrubs. I wouldn't consider it big-rig friendly at all. When we got to our site and got the slides opened, we were barely 3 ft from the back corner of the next rig. It took some careful maneuvering to get out of our site and out of the park. I'm sure I have a few extra scratches on the rig. They have some pretty restrictive rules like: any visitors will be charged $3.00 per day per person. This is a very shady, wooded park as the name suggests, which might make it an attractive destination in the Summer. I probably wouldn't stay here again.

This is a nice quiet campground and a great value for the price. (Their website said $16, but the sign at the self-pay station said $18, for a full hookup with 30 amp.) I counted 17 sites with hookups,and I would consider them all to be back-ins. The sites are all grass and are less than 20' wide from one utility hookup to the next, could be a little tight for slideouts. There were only 3 rigs here when we camped, and we all parked parallel to the drive (90degrees to the sites), and were able to reach all the hookups. There's an interesting Museum of Local History located at the fairgrounds, it includes artifacts and buildings from the WWII Japanese-American Internment Camp. We'd definitely stay here again.

This park was OK for an overnight stop. It's right off the freeway, but you drive in on a long gravel road. We got an easy pull-through site. The on site manager was friendly and helpful. The rate reflects the Passport America rate of $8.25 plus $2.50 flat rate for electricity. We'd stay here again if passing through the area.

This is a big RV park. Staff is exceptional; very friendly and helpful. Actually we stayed here twice in March & April. We had to fly home for 5 weeks to close on our home. We stored our RV on site for $100/mo. They even kept our frozen and refrigerated food in their freezer/fridge for the whole 5 weeks. I'm giving a 9 rating mostly for the staff. They have good security; they check your permit at a gatehouse everytime you enter. The negatives are, very narrow drives in some parts of the park making it difficult to back-in. In our first site, the placement of the utilities (all at the very back of the site) made it challenging to position the rig so the utilities would reach and the slides would still open. I think we had to overhang the back-in space behind us. Easy walk to Sams Town & short drive down Nellis Blvd to a Wal-Mart Supercenter.

All gravel pull-throughs. I'd recommend parking in the middle row for easy access and easy exit. The back row was a little tight turning into with our 35ft 5th wheel They have a free every 15-minute shuttle that takes you to the Horseshoe Casino and Rita's restaurant. Also this park is in a good location for exploring Death Valley. It's about 10 miles to the park entrance. About 5 miles away is Rhyolite ghost town. This park has wired internet connections at each site. They will loan you a Cat-5 network cable for a $20 deposit We would definitely stay here again if in the area.

I agree with the previous posters. This is a very nice well-maintained, well-managed park. About 10 years old. All concrete pads, well placed utilities. They have both wired and wireless internet. Good cable TV channel selection. Nice grass areas and small trees between the sites. We would definitely stay here again. The PA rate is $18 plus tax. Even though the park is right along a busy highway; the high concrete wall blocks out all the noise.

This is a very quiet, pleasant little "Mom and Pop" RV Park. There are only 11 sites (the owner is still working on #11) and most of the residents are semi-permanent, so at any given time, there may only be 2-3 sites available for travelers. This is an exceptionally well cared for park. The owner is constantly maintaining and improving the facility. Many of the sites have hedges in between, and most have wooden decks, which makes for a very homey feel. We chose this park because of it's location, intending to stay for a week while we checked out other parks. We're now in our third week and planning to stay a while longer. We would definitely choose this park again if in the area.

Price paid reflects using the Texas State Parks annual pass with one 50% off coupon. Very nice park. Roomy, well-space sites and full hookups, including sewer (rare for Texas State Parks). Park is on a golf course. We enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay here again.

Very nice, clean park; typical of Texas State Parks, maybe a cut above. The price reflects using the Texas St. Park Pass to cover the entrance fee, and the use of one 50% discount coupon. We had a very nice, secluded site, #21. Lots of opportunities for biking, wildlife and bird watching. A large portion of the park is a designated Turkey Roost area and was closed to hiking. We did catch a glimpse of some wild turkeys and their resident herd of Black Buck Antelope, as well as deer, armadillos etc. We would definitely stay here again.

The price we paid reflects the Texas St. Park pass coupon. Texas State Parks charge a per/person daily entrance fee in addition to the camping fee ($15/night at this park). We purchased the TSPP for $60 which covers the per/person entrance fee and gives you 4 coupons each good for 50% off the 2nd night's camping fee. We camped in the Rolling Hills Loop which had limited lake views, and water/electric hookups. The Lakeview Loop has lake frontage but water-only hookups. We had the whole park to ourselves with the exception of one other camper on the first night. It was very quiet, just crickets and coyotes. Rangers made regular rounds and were very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay here again.

This is a very clean,family run, park; all-gravel sites. The pull thru's were just long enough for our 35' 5th Wheel and truck. Sites were a little close together. The management is very friendly and helpful. I had a problem with low overhanging tree branches. The owner came by in 5 minutes and trimmed the offending branches. You do get some train noise, but not whistles, just a few in the distance. Very good value for the money.

We had a very pleasant, quiet stay at this park and would probably stay here again. Good value for the PA rate of $19. Good location for exploring Mesa Verde NP. It's a family run park and the manager was very helpful with local sights and gave us good suggestions for our route. The park has shared 30 amp hookups. Our power cord wouldn't quite reach the 30 amp plug at the adjacent site, but the manager loaned us an extension cord which worked fine.

This was our first KOA experience, and we weren't impressed. Not a good value for the money. We got in after hours and selected one of the "Pull-thru" sites. Access to the site was by a very narrow gravel road occupied by a lot of sleeping ducks. We had to get out and chase them away. When we got to the site, we weren't able to pull in due to low overhanging tree limbs. We went around the loop and ended up backing in. Barely enough room for the 5er and our truck. Probably wouldn't stay here again.

This was a good 2-night stop for us. Close to I-80 exit 180. The reservation and check-in process was very efficient. Friendly, efficient staff. The price reflects the Passport America rate, and they accepted credit card payment. I had made a reservation over the phone, not guaranteed, just gave them my name, but they held a site for us, which was a good thing since the campground was full. Most of the clientele were semi-permanent pipeline workers employed on the Ruby Pipeline project which will probably be going on for several months. They put us in a pull-thru near the front of the park. We got some traffic noise morning and evening with the workers going to and from work, but it wasn't objectionable. We would probably use this RV park again as an overnight or 2 night stop.

We chose this campground based on its location and a recommendation from the visitor center in Green River. The campground is very conveniently located for visiting Canyon lands, Island In The Sky, and Arches Natl Park. We were there on a holiday weekend and the park was full of campers with ATV's, dirt bikes and Jeeps which seems to be the major attraction for that area. Although we were a little put off when we first entered the park, they were a very well-mannered group, and the park has strictly enforced rules regarding noise etc. So it was not a big issue. The spaces were pretty tight. It fit into the space, but we had to squeeze our truck in alongside the rig; barely had room to walk between the trailer and truck. Also the Wi-Fi in our row (the back 'F' row) was so weak as to be unusable. When we called to make the reservation we were quoted a $32.95 rate per night, but when we extended by an additional day, the rate went up to $35.95. They explained that this was because we had a 50 amp space. After the weekend, most of the dirt biker / ATV crowd left and it became more like a normal RV park. Not sure if I would choose this park again if visiting the area. I would probably choose one of the state parks or BLM campgrounds for a little more quiet and room.

Very nice park. Mostly pull through's, gravel. Nice concrete pads with picnic tables and metal stands for your BBQ grill. Good landscaping, small trees and shrubs at each site. We really enjoyed our stay here and would definitely come back. This is a good base for exploring the Steens Mountains, Diamond Loop, Malheur Lake, etc. Management/owners are very nice and helpful. Good restaurant on site. Gas, diesel and propane available.

We loved this RV Park. Easy access, just 2 blocks south of US-20. It has gravel sites. They offer dry camping and full hookups with either 30 or 50 amp. We could have gotten by with 30, but we chose a 50-amp site, not realizing that it was $4.00 more, but it was a nice site. the 30-amp sites are $30 Senior Rate,and the 50-amp are $34. The sites seem pretty close together, but it hasn't been a factor as we haven't had a neighbor on either side for the first 2 nights. If the campground filled up it could get a little close. We would definitely stay here again. Much better value than we could find anywhere else in the Sisters/Bend area.

This is one of Oregon's newest State Parks. Very large gravel sites. All 50 amp full hookups, mostly back-in. There are a few "pull through" sites, but with those you end up very close to the road; we much prefer the back-ins. They are very large and well spaced with large picnic tables and metal fire pits. Lots to do at this park if you like biking and hiking. The park is about midway on the Banks-Vernonia State trail, a 20-mile, mostly paved bike trail with very moderate grades. Lots of hiking trails,and there's even a Frisbee golf course almost completed.
