Rate cited reflects Passport America discount. This park was a pleasant surprise. It was immaculate with very friendly folks taking care of it. The sites are all gravel and level. FHU, cable, and Wi-Fi. Lots of grass. A beautiful stream running behind the park. All in the NC mountains with gorgeous views. Close to restaurants and shopping. We stopped for one night, but will come back for more.

Rate is with the federal senior pass. Beautiful COE campground! We had one of the large 50 amp sites (site 5) right on the lake. It was perfect. Even though the lake was low, we were able to launch our kayak right from our site and paddle the beautiful lake. The park was quiet; everyone respectful of others. No walking trails but plenty of paved road area to walk. We would definitely return.

Rate is with the senior pass. Beautiful wooded COE park in the NC mountains. Forest-like atmosphere with hiking trails. The park is on the water, but there are little or no sites with a water view. When we were there, the beach and boat ramp were closed due to high water. Very, very limited OTA TV and slow Verizon signal, but usable. Restaurants and shopping within 10 miles. This is a beautiful area of NC with attractions nearby and several wineries within a short drive. We will return.

Rate cited reflects Passport America discount. Nice campground close to I-40. We had FHU with cable for a great rate. Some of the sites were close together and some were not quite long enough for the big rigs. All sites are pull through. The park is reminiscent of a KOA and may have been one in the past. The owners were friendly and accommodating. Plenty of shopping close by. We will return.

Rate paid is the weekly rate. We really liked this campground. It is right off I-65 so there is some traffic noise, but it didn't bother us at all. We stopped for 1 night and stayed for 2 weeks. The grounds are very nicely cared for, and the staff is friendly and helpful. We had good Verizon signal and 5 snowy cable channels (Nashville locals), but it was better than nothing off our OTA antenna. We found it is an easier trip into Franklin to see family than any other area around Nashville. Much, much less traffic and a straight shot on I-65. We will definitely return the next time we're in the area.

Rate paid was with the federal senior pass. This is another of those wonderful COE parks. We had a site right on the water and the views were terrific. The park personnel were extremely friendly and helpful. Nice spacious concrete pads. Very limited OTA TV signal. Good Verizon signal. The only thing that would make this park better would be sewer hookups. We will definitely return.

We hesitated to stop here when the latest review was several years old, but we thought we'd take a chance when we needed an overnight stop. The rate we paid was with the senior pass so I hesitate to complain. $14 for water and electric is not bad. It is clear this campground has gone downhill since the 2007 reviews though. The sites are dirt and all run together. There are not many that can accommodate our 40' size. There were overflowing garbage cans at each site. I will say that the young man working was very pleasant and helpful and seemed distressed that he couldn't get all the garbage picked up while attending to his other duties as well. He was all alone. If we were smaller, I think we'd probably use this park again in transit. Due to our size, I doubt we will.

Easy off, easy on I-10. Perfect overnight spot if in transit. Sites are large and paved, clean, FHU, cable and wifi. No frills, but a good, safe overnighter. Gas station and McDonalds next door.

Rate paid was with PA discount. This is a nice little overnight park right off I-10, easy in, easy out. The owners are very friendly. The site we were given was in the front, close to the office, all grass with FHU. The park was nicely mowed and very clean. The only noise was from traffic on I-10 but we weren't bothered by that. We'd definitely stop again if in the area.

This park was a major disappointment. We chose it based on earlier reviews but things were not as we expected. We have stayed in other city parks before and always found them clean, well-managed and navigable. Not so with this park. It was difficult to even tell where the sites were located. Nothing was marked well. Everything was tight and cramped and we had to use 2 other spaces just to get out of the site we finally got into. My guess is that this park was built many years before anyone realized that an RV would be longer than 18-20 feet, but no one wanted to turn away the business so they welcome all. We will definitely not return.

We used this as an overnight stop and, as such, it worked OK, but I'd never stay longer than overnight. This park is mostly permanents with tight, cramped spaces. The trees need major trimming. The lady in the office was very pleasant and helpful, however. Nothing at all special. We will probably not return.

Rate is with federal Senior Pass. We absolutely loved this campground. We stayed in the newly remodeled loop and had FHU w/50 amp. It was wonderful. The sites are all paved and spacious. Some are on the river. A couple very short walking trails but the paved roads through the park offer plenty of walking space. We had good Verizon signal and several OTA TV signals. We wouldn't stay anywhere else when we're in this area!

Rate is with senior pass. This COE park has to be in our top 10 favorite parks. The park is well managed, well cared for, and beautiful. It's a little tight getting a big rig in, but it is doable and well worth the effort. Beautiful lake, nice shady sites, good 50 amp electric. There are several short walking trails throughout the park, a nice boat ramp and a beautiful day use area with swimming beach. There is good Verizon 3G signal and a limited number of OTA TV channels. This park is a gem! We will return.

Beautiful COE park. Rate quoted is with senior pass. Heavily wooded, very private sites. Most will accommodate a big rig. Only 30 amp but because of the heavy shade it was adequate to keep the coach cool. Take on water before parking. Water is available at the dump station at the entrance and there are a couple other faucets around the campground. Over-the-air TV signal was poor. We were able to pull in one station but it would pixelate frequently. Very, very weak Verizon 3G even using our amp and external antenna. Even with these drawbacks, this was a very nice campground and we'd definitely return.

This is a beautiful little COE park in Emmons County, ND. I was surprised there were no previous reviews on this park. This park is strictly first come, first served. There is no camp host. It is self registration and a park ranger will come by and empty the lockbox and leave a receipt on your post. Cash or check only. There are 30 sites total with 12 having 50 amp electric hookups. The remaining 18 are primitive. There are picnic tables and fire rings at all sites. The electric sites are all wide and level with plenty of space for large rigs. There are trees between sites but they are young and did not interfere with the roof line. There is NO water, nor is there a dump station at this park. There are 2 vault toilets. Come prepared with a full tank of water and empty black and gray tanks, and supplies to last your stay. You will be several miles from shopping and restaurants. The park is adjacent to Lake Oahe and has a nice boat ramp with plenty of parking. You will be out in the middle of nowhere, which is something we like. Coming from either the north or south, take Hwy 1804 to avoid the many gravel roads prevalent in this area. We had good Verizon 4G signal and pulled in all the networks with our OTA antenna. We would definitely stay at this park if in this area again. The $5 rate was with the senior pass.

Not a destination park, but certainly more than adequate for an overnight or two. The staff was friendly and accommodating. We had a 50 amp pull through with FHU at the PA rate of $20. There is a bar and restaurant upstairs from the office/store. They are open 4-10 daily and serve a varied menu at very reasonable prices. We'd stay here again.

A lot has happened to this park since the last review in 2010. The Bad River flooded in 2011 and basically wiped out the campground. There are no more trees, no grass, but the city is trying to redo it. It still has 50 amp electric and water for $10/night. Self register, cash or check only. In spite of the damage done by the flood, this campground is perfectly fine for an overnight and a great value.

Rate is with Senior Pass. This is one of those rare finds in a campground. Absolutely beautiful, right on the lake. The camp hosts were very helpful. We could walk the trails or take day trips to many of the sites in the area. This is Georgia O'Keeffe territory. Stunning scenery everywhere you looked. Verizon phone and air signal fair to good. No OTA TV signal. We would come back here in a heartbeat!

This campground is a real find! Rate is Passport America. Well cared for campground with full hook-ups. Friendly helpful owners. Perfect for an overnight or two. Excellent cafe about two blocks away that serves wonderful food at excellent prices. Good Verizon signal. A few OTA TV signals. The only drawback to this park is the trains, as mentioned previously. If that doesn't bother you, this place is a gem. We would return.

Passport America rate. This is a no frills park that fits the bill when you're passing through. We had a 50 amp full hookup pull-through site with TV and Wi-Fi. The owner was extremely nice and helpful and we wouldn't hesitate to stay here again when passing through.

Charming little park made better by the owners and staff. They treat you like family the entire time you're there. The sites are tight if the park is full but while we were there, that only happened on the weekend. Nice mountain breezes so we didn't need to run our A/C. There is no 50 amp service at this park, so the breezes were appreciated. No OTA TV signal. Very poor Verizon signal but very good free Wi-Fi! The town is quaint and charming also. Many galleries and little shops. Much to see and do in the area. Highly recommend this park!

Absolutely loved this park. It is right on Cochiti Lake so we were able to do some kayaking while we were there. We stayed in the newest loop that has large paved sites and 50 amp electric for big rigs. This loop stays booked and we just happened to luck out when someone else cancelled. The only thing that would make this place better is full hookups instead of the dump station. Even so, the dump station was very large and easy to get in and out of. We had good OTA TV signal here and good Verizon signal. We would definitely return.

The lady that owns this park is wonderful and very accommodating. That said, the park is small and somewhat difficult to maneuver a big rig through. Most of the sites are permanents but they are very well taken care of. The 2 sites used for over-nighters are pull-through but tight and as previously stated, right next to the road. We didn't find that particularly objectionable but we were very cramped in the site. Our picnic table was on the driver side because there was barely room to walk between our motorhome and the 5th wheel next to us. We were only there for 2 nights so it wasn't a big issue, but if we were to travel through this area again, we'd first try to find another park that can accommodate big rigs better.

Wonderful New Mexico State Park! This is a desert park with a couple short hiking trails. Most sites are water/electric only but there are a handful with sewer connections. Approximately half the sites are reservable. The pads were all paved and all had a nice shelter with picnic table. Verizon phone and data signal was marginal. We would return.

This is a very busy park! It's a great stopping off place in west Texas. The park is clean and well taken care of. There is an on-site restaurant that serves very good food at very good prices. We will definitely stop here the next time we are traveling through west Texas.

Rate is an average using the Passport America weekly rate. Yes, they do give a weekly discount for PA members. As another reviewer noted, our first impression was that the money ran out and much of the park has been put on hold pending additional financing. That said, we really enjoyed our stay here. It is out of town far enough to feel like country. The sites are long pull-throughs. Our first site was not level, but we were told we could move to any available site that would work for us. The staff was friendly and helpful. The pool clean and not crowded. Our Verizon phones and air card worked fine. Cable TV was limited and some of the channels fuzzy. There was also limited OTA TV signal. We hope the park can continue to develop and would definitely return if ever in this area again.

Rate reflects Senior Pass rate. It's hard to find fault with any part of this campground. It appears to be well managed and well taken care of. It's popular with the locals so may be hard to get in on a weekend. There are 2 sides: 1 reservable, 1 first come, first served. We couldn't make reservations because they were all booked, so we took a chance and came in on a Sunday afternoon after the weekenders had left. That strategy worked and we got a site right on the water. Very nice. There really are no poor sites in the entire campground. I think every site has a water view. Not many have shade however, so if that's important to you, you may want to look elsewhere. Our Verizon aircard and cell phone worked well here. OTA television also was good. We would definitely return.

Rate is using monthly rates. This is a very nice park; small and intimate. This was a wonderful spot to spend the winter. We were here for 3.5 months. The park is midway between Rockport and Aransas Pass on Business 35. The hosts are wonderful! They go out of their way to make you feel welcome and included. The photos on the website are accurate. The sites are fairly close together but there are Live Oaks between them along with nicely landscaped areas. The pads are all concrete; although, the road coming in from the highway is dirt and has many ruts. It would make the park even nicer if that were paved. Cable TV and Wi-Fi are included. There is a clubhouse and laundry facilities. The grounds and facilities were all clean and well-maintained. Our only complaint is with Verizon, as phone and air card signal is poor in this area. Even so, we will return next winter.

This is a great place to stay if you're visiting the Shoals area. The sites are all firmly packed gravel and level. Each site is full hookups and there is complimentary cable TV and Wi-Fi. They also have on-site propane available. The park is well maintained, the laundry room (4 washers, 4 dryers) clean and reasonable ($1.50 wash, $1.25 dry for 1 hour)and the bathrooms/showers are incredible. Nicest I've ever seen. The owner does everything he can to accommodate. This is a nice, safe, functional park. There are no fire rings or picnic tables, but it's not meant to be a destination. It served us very well and we will return the next time we're in the area.

This was our second visit to this park and it remains one of our very favorites. The park, itself, is beautiful and the staff maintain it wonderfully. The sites are all spacious, level and full hook-ups. There is no cable TV or Wi-Fi, but there is hiking and the great outdoors. Some sites are water views. Good Verizon cell signal and air card signal. Good OTA TV signal. Would definitely return!

Beautiful well maintained park. We stayed in the new area that had 50 amp FHU at the park entrance. There are some beautiful sites on the lake further into the grounds if you don't require 50 amp, but due to the heat, we felt it wiser to take advantage and use our A/C. Personnel very nice and helpful. Walking trails, a lot of wild life, nice sized sites. Our area was all pull through; the lake sites were back-ins. Decent OTA TV signal. The only negative, for us, was our Verizon air card and cell phone had little to no signal. Other than that, we really enjoyed our time here and would return.

This is a nice campground about 10 miles outside of Frankfort KY. Initial impressions were that the grounds were somewhat "aged" but after paying and heading to the site, the actual grounds are very nice. They are back quite a bit from the office and well maintained, quiet and pleasant. Our only issue was that the electric spiked high voltage every evening around 7:00. This caused our EMS to shut down the electric to our coach and start the inverter to protect our system. The length of time varied each day. We had good Verizon cell and air card coverage. The owners were very pleasant. We would return if in the area.

This was a good location for visiting Indianapolis. It is definitely not a destination park but fits the bill for an overnight or 2-3 day stay. Sites are gravel, level and full hookups. Free cable was nice. There is free Wi-Fi also, but we didn't use it so can't say how well it worked. Our Verizon air card and cell phones got great service. This is a 4G area. We will return our next time through this area.

Rate is Passport America with utility surcharges. This is a nice quiet, small park right on the river. It also has a marina but it did not seem to be in use while we were there. Approximately half the sites were riverfront. Owner lives on property and was very helpful and friendly. Walking distance to town for us-about 3 mile round trip. Pulled in some OTA TV signals. Good Verizon cell signal. This park has no amenities but is clean and we were quite pleased with it. This location is just outside Door County so was very convenient. We would stay here again.

This is a typical fairgrounds park. Sites have full hookups and are gravel but level. It's definitely not a destination park, but it's perfect when passing through the area. There is wi-fi in the park, but we didn't use it so we don't know how well it worked. Verizon cell signal was fair to good and our Verizon air card worked well. It's true about the trains. They are plentiful, and they blow their whistles day and night. After a couple days, you get used to it. We were there 5 nights, and by the last day, didn't even notice them. Our only complaint is that many of the dog owners did not pick up after their dogs and would walk them in empty sites leaving little gifts for the next occupant. There was no onsite supervision to make them clean up after their pets.

Rate is Passport America. This might really be the deal of the year. HUGE campground with 800 sites and 5 lakes. Swimming available at one of them at least, with lifeguard. Well manicured grounds. Friendly staff. We were here for 2 nights passing through and had a pull-thru site with FHU. We would definitely return if in the area. Verizon cell and air card worked well. OTA TV, no signal.

Rate is Passport America. Nice park, easy in, easy out. We had a pull-thru spot, so didn't have to unhitch the toad. We were just passing through overnight. Check-in was pleasant and quick. We did not check out the entire property but the area where we were was fine. Verizon air card and cell signal worked fine. No OTA TV signal. We would return.

This is a decent park to stay in if in the Buffalo area. The surrounding area is very hilly, and I mean STEEP hills. If you are going to stay at Colden Lakes, be sure to come in FROM the east, not from the west off 219. The grades from the west are a challenge in a car, much less an RV. Other than the terrain, the park is pretty nice. The manager was very helpful. Most of their tenants are seasonal but there is a new area with FHU and pull-through sites that works for those of us just passing through. The grass hasn't established yet on those spaces though, so much of your yard will be straw. You will be out in the boonies (which we liked). This park has it's own restaurant/bar, which is good, because it's a long way to anything else. The food is excellent and the prices very reasonable. It was a wonderful convenience. There is no cable TV; we were able to pick up CBS and ABC off air. No Wi-Fi, but our Verizon aircard and our Verizon cell phones worked fine. If in this area again, we'd definitely come back.

This is a very nice, well maintained park. Check-in was quick and friendly. We had a FHU pull-thru site which included cable and Wi-Fi. We did not use the Wi-Fi so cannot attest to signal strength or speed. We used our Verizon air card and had adequate signal on it as well as our Verizon cell phones. Our site was plenty long to accommodate both our 40' motorhome and our toad without unhitching. They even have organic gardens of herbs around the grounds that you are welcome to partake when they are ready to harvest. All they ask in return is a small donation to a children's cancer fund. This campground is priced higher than we like to pay but we needed an overnight park in this area and it had everything we needed. It certainly could be used as a destination park. It's on the bank of the Mohawk River and across the road from the Herkimer Diamond Mines. Although pricey, we would return if in the area.

This is a very large park with a lot of permanent residents. The permanent residents are mostly in the back section of the park leaving the front for overnight guests. Everything seemed to be well maintained. I would not call this a destination park but it served the purpose of an overnight stay very well. Our site was a long pull-thru. It was grass and gravel-mostly grass and fairly level. We were able to pull in several stations on our antenna. Verizon cell and air card worked well. Rate quoted was the Passport America rate.

This is a very nice park with friendly, helpful owners who work constantly maintaining the park. Everything is clean. The back area has seasonal sites but were nicely kept. The front area has nice long pull thru's with full hook-ups. There is a small pond for fishing, some paddle boats and a walking trail. It would have been nice to have cable as we were unable to pull in any stations on our antenna. That was not a major drawback for us, however. We will definitely stay here the next time we are in this area.
