Previously a residential neighborhood, it was converted to a campground after the devastating flood of 1997. Many pull-throughs although some have side-to-side leveling issues. Some dry-camping sites at a lower price as well as some non-reservable sites. Just a few blocks off US-2 and within walking distance to numerous restaurants, movie theater, and a Cabelas store. Along the many mile long Red River Greenway with paved trails for walking and biking. We'll be back.
We prefer camping as opposed to RV Parking and that's exactly what you get here. Most sites are electric only but there are a few full hookup sites -- a rarity in COE parks. Facilities are clean and well maintained. Verizon service was good. Has access to Leech Lake, the third largest lake in Minnesota. We'll be back.
We prefer quiet, un-congested campgrounds and that's what we got when we made the decision to stay here. The only other real option was an RV Park on a hilltop north of town with no shade or protection from the wind. We think we made the right choice. There were very few other campers during our 4-day stay. The owner and his staff were friendly and helpful, directing us to local places we should see and explore. It's an old KOA park with a mixture of sites from primitive tent camping to a few full hookup pull-through sites for bigger rigs. Some sites are a little close as the park was designed before slide-outs were common. The roads through the campground are not paved. But that said, we enjoyed our stay. The park is right along the Niobrara River, within walking distance to the historic Bryan Bridge, and close to the Cowboy Trail recreation trail. In our opinion this is the best place for us to stay in the Valentine area.
A very nice campground. The only problem we had was interference with low untrimmed branches. The F loop is definitely the preferred place for big rigs. We camped in the D loop and had difficulty turning into and out of our site. We witnessed one camper who shattered the satellite dome on his fifth wheel with a low hanging branch. The camp host was marvelous. If they trim the trees we'll stay here again.
A wonderful place to camp except for one issue: many sites are not level and it would be impossible to level a motorhome on a few of them. We'd recommend staying here but don't make a reservation unless you know which sites will work for you. The restrooms and showers were simply spotless. The on-site store is convenient and well stocked. The staff was friendly and helpful. The park fills up and is very busy on weekends. We'd stay here again.
$10 is Passport America rate for electric and water only. $5 additional charge for sewer connection, but dump station is free for campers. Like many county fair campgrounds there are places to park all over the place, in wooded areas and in fields. Mostly it's parking on grass but a few paved spots are available. We only spent on night while passing through the area but would consider a longer stay next time. The town is neat and clean with good grocery stores and services. We would definitely stay here again.
A real deal only a mile from I-69. The main campground is in a mature wooded area. Unless you're here at fair time in August, or during an RV rally, there should be no problem finding a good place to park. You'll be parking on grass, electric power is 30 amp max, water bibs sprinkled around the grounds but not at every site, and no sewer but there is a dump station on the grounds. We think it's a real deal for $15. We'll stay here again.
One of the nicest RV-Park-type campgrounds we've ever stayed in. It's the best kept camping secret in Michigan. Only a few miles from downtown and WMU. There's a small swimming beach a short walk away and walking/biking trails that thread through the 190 acre park. Concrete pads are relatively level with grassy areas separating the sites. The railroad referred to in other reviews is only used once or twice a day, and didn't bother us at all. We will definitely stay here again.
Price reflects Passport America discount. This is an excellent place to stay when spending time in this area or just passing through along I-75 or I-10. The owners are dedicated and hard-working people who clearly like what they're doing and keeping the place neat and clean. Sites are generally level and satellite service can be used on most. Sites are grass or gravel. The shower and restroom facility is among the cleanest we've ever run across. We felt welcome and will certainly put this on our list of places to return to when in the area.
We prefer campgrounds over RV Parks. This place has aspects of both. Wooded setting and widely separated sites but with asphalt roads and concrete pads, full hookups. No campfires allowed. Don't count on satellite service. There are some leveling issues. But the location is great. Only miles from all the Orlando attractions. And the price is attractive for the area. We'd definitely stay here again.
How one rates the "experience" of staying someplace versus the "facilities" can vary greatly. This is what Betty's got going for her and why some reviewers have a problem with the place. If you're able to mingle and get into the social and cultural aspects of Betty's, learning and enjoying the talents of other campers, the artists, the musicians, the amateur comedians, the story-tellers, and those here just to learn about and experience Cajun Country, you'll have a great experience. But if you want concrete pads, a pablum experience, and don't want to meet other people do yourself and the other campers at Betty's a favor and stay away. Our price was for dry camping as we didn't plan far enough ahead. Still had a great time. We'll definitely be back.
Lots of seasonal snow-birds and semi-permanents. The turn into the park is from the high-side of a banked curved road, then drops quickly downward into the park, so beware of high-centering or hitch dragging issues getting in or out. There are no paved roads or pads and a mixture of sand, gravel, and dirt is the norm. The site we had was not level and the ground very soft and uneven. Plenty of trees so satellite service is iffy. We only stayed one night, but it was long enough. There's not much to choose from in this part of Florida. It'll do in a pinch but I wouldn't stay here again unless there was nothing else available.
We stayed here for the location, on the Gulf, and because there aren't a lot of choices in this part of the world. Having looked at other RV Parks in the area this is probably the best one. This area is referred to as Florida's Forgotten Coast -- it's quiet and not as developed as the congested beaches west of here. But beware, restaurant choices are slim. Sites are gravel, fairly level, and long enough for any rig. Being close to the Gulf means wind and blowing sand and dust at times. Hosts are very friendly and helpful. There are a few trees that can interfere with satellite service on some sites. There's a dock and good fishing has been reported. Overall, we'll stay here again
