Overnighted here with, good level pull through site so could stay connected! All utilities worked well, good WiFi. Nice fenced dog run area. A bit off of the interstate, but easy access. Looked like a fair amount of long term campers; probably oil or construction workers. Some noise and traffic possibly due to that. Free coffee in the morning, and very helpful staff. Will definitely keep on our list for that area again.
First, let me say that my rating is based and slanted due to the time of the year and the weather. Mid '90's, drought conditions, low water levels. That said, very large State Park CG on fair sized reservoir. Spring and mid summer conditions would probably be very different than what we encountered. Lake level was very low, the water was green and stunk. Many mosquitoes, and midges. Vent fans got coated with dead bugs in evening, swarms everywhere. Site was shady, and protected from wind. Water spigots are few, and far apart. Good dump station access and facilities. A fair distance from freeway, so wouldn't recommend for an overnight like we did. $ rate includes Reserve America's rip-off reservation fees!!
Good Nebraska State facility, a bit of a distance from town and the interstate. Nice setting, lots of trees and shade, grassy and weedy!! Lots of sand burrs, which the dogs didn't appreciate! Our site was right on the lake, looking west towards the dam. Good electric, water spigots nearby. Mid-week stay, so campground was almost empty! Paved access roads and pads, with fire ring and picnic table. Look like there is pretty good fishing for panfish from what we saw. There also are undeveloped campsites nearby, below the dam. When the dam is using water for power production, and the wind is right, there is a strong sulphur odor (like an oil refinery) in the air as others have reported. That is due to the spray from the outlet which comes from the bottom of the lake behind the dam, dead water, as some park employees explained. May or may not be there earlier in the year.
A nice, shady campground just a short distance from the interstate. Being as close as it was, we were pleasantly surprised at the lack of hwy noise! Lots of trees and grass, a small lake, picnic area, and good laundry. The sites are laid out by type of hookups, 50amp full hook-up pull throughs, 30 amp full hook-up pull throughs, electric only, tents, etc. Only real complaint was with the 30amp full hookup area. Set up as front to back - side by side, but probably was laid out before slide-outs became the norm! If you and your neighbor do it right, you both should be able to open your adjacent slide, and then can pass refreshments between rigs without any problem! Oh, forgot the other negative, they no longer do Pizza like reported earlier, PO'd the wife as she was looking forward to an easy dinner!
Nice COE campground on Saylorville Lake, east of the interstate a ways. Large campground with many loops. Situated on a ridge above the lake with no direct access. Our site was fairly un-level, but could compensate. Many sites are not level, but not terrible. Shady, which helped with the mid 90's temps we experienced during our trip. Other than the distance from the interstate, a great place to overnight. Very quiet during mid-week, probably very busy on weekends being on a high use lake. Rate reflects Senior Pass.
Nice Corps of Engineers park on Lake Ashtabula. A bit of a drive from Interstate, but no freeway noise!!! Very wooded, shady sites. Clean, no charge showers. Lots of walking/hiking trails through the wooded areas, swimming beach. Lake access is somewhat limited since shore is also heavily wooded. Very few sites have any kind of lake view. Bugs and mosquitoes were mild, but present. Dump station located at entrance/exit. Price reflects senior pass price. Other than distance from Interstate, this is a very nice, economical overnight spot.
Spent 8 nights here visiting our old hometown and relatives. Very nice, quiet park that makes you believe you are actually in the woods, not in the suburbs of a major city!! Three loops each with different amenities. Most sites have some shade, some more than others. Almost all will accommodate even the "big" rigs. This was the first campground that we have been in where the utilities were so separated! Be aware that the water spigot is at the entrance of the site!! For us that was almost 40ft of water hose needed, since our connection is on the back of the trailer. Found some noise coming from the Zoo on weekends due to performances at the outdoor stage, but wasn't annoying. Wi-Fi (unsecured) was good, TV reception with antenna was good. Good dump station access for those in need. Campground is easily accessed, and near many attractions and businesses.
Clean, but older state park. Short sites, many unlevel. Don't know about the 40ft access, maybe!!! Quiet, cool, shady. A ways from town, probably better suited for a weekend or longer stay rather than an overnight. For us it was close to relatives and "old" friends. Only major complaint is the dump station. Located on a less than 2 lane access road, at top of rise in a slow corner, and the hookups are on the wrong side of RV if using when leaving!! AND, no water at dump.
Very nice city operated park with RV sites. Located just outside of town, fairly quiet, low traffic area. Some train noise, but a ways away. Host on site, and patrolled by local law enforcement. There were some "long term" units when we were there, construction workers on a new rail spur in town. Full hook up sites are back in, in grassy areas with no real pad or drive. All utilities are at rear of RV. The site without hook ups could be considered pull thru, since they are located alongside the access road next to treed areas. Somewhat open, but was not bad for heat and wind during our short stay. Host states that they will be adding more sites in the coming year.
Stayed here 2 nights on our way east to Minnesota, and 2 nights on the return trip 4 wks later. We are "boondockers" at home, and wanted a mountain spot to relax for a couple of nights. Very nice, quiet NF site at about 5500 ft elevation. Hand pump for water, vault toilets, and bear boxes for food storage!! A bit off the freeway on pretty good gravel roads, but not difficult to get to. On weekends, it is used by locals and ATV's. We never felt they were obnoxious, and pretty much only used the campground roads to go in and out from the main road and up into the mountains. Great spot for thunderstorms in the hot summer!! Spaces are fairly short, our 24ft TT fit in one spot well but a much larger unit would have some problem finding a adequate site. Forest Service states 22ft max for sites. Fire rings and solid picnic table at each site. Sites are free, but had to put in something for the review!!!
Stayed here on first night out on a 4 week trip back to Midwest and family homes. Wife's grandmother buried up at 9 Mile Cemetery, so could make an unhurried visit to grave. Park is located in a narrow canyon, highway on one side and creek on other. We had a back in site, small, but had all services. There are no actual pull-thru's, but coming in from the road, over the short curb will make it a "pull-thru"!! We were there on a Thurs, and it was very busy and full. Probably due to the fact that there aren't any others around! All services were good, but only way to get WiFi was to sit on the brew pubs deck (problem?!) at the entrance. None in the campground.
Easy access from freeway, but not too noisy. Older park, but clean and tidy. Some permanent residents, but RV sites somewhat separated from them. Pull-thru's are by-pass, RVs front to back, but have a fair amount of room between. Water has some smell, pressure is good, and Wi-Fi and cable work well. Lots of grass and trees around the perimeter, but lacking in the individual sites. Our overnight was hot and interrupted by a 2 hr thunderstorm at midnight!! But that isn't the campgrounds fault.
Near freeway, but did not notice any excess noise. Nice, level pull-thru, good water pressure and voltages. Wi-Fi and cable very good, although limited number of cable channels available. Laundry clean and reasonably priced. Owners are planning expansion and store for future. Will make it a nice one location for travelers, since Reed Point doesn't have any services.
This is the original KOA as they advertise! Park is clean, updated, and organized!! Only our 2nd KOA in our long camping life. Since we usually camp in the mountains without any amenities, this was a good stop on a long (4 wk) trip. Positives were: Quiet, shady (hot out!), nice dog area, easy in and out of site (pull-through). Negatives were: price(!!), mediocre reception and help at desk, poor WiFi, and very poor cable TV.
