Right off the I-10 at Ext 847. Entrance and interior roads all paved. Sites are somewhat narrow, but long and paved. Utilities are good. Front office staff friendly and helpful. This is adjacent to the Ford Arena (in fact there is a gate in the fence). Near highway and ball park, but it was remarkably quiet. The park was full, but it was quiet. Very clean. All the grass is neatly cut. Wi-Fi was actually pretty good (but we were near the office). Places to walk the dog, but the off leash area was the same size you find at a KOA (ittsy bittsy for tiny dogs). They have the land, but the size of the off leash area is very small.

This park is 2 miles south of I-10. The road is good. Interior roads are paved, as are the sites. Office staff was very helpful. The park is very clean. There are two pools, with one specifically for adults. There is no camp store, but there is a convenience store within walking distance. There is a fishing pond and playground for kids. Lots of places to walk the dog, and a large fenced off leash area at the south end of the park. There were a few mosquitoes around, but this is La. This is really an RV park with a small motel out front. No shade is the only shortcoming. Very, very nice place and we will use this as a stopover again.

We have frequently stayed here, and were apprehensive due to the weather. This winter the temps were well below freezing, and the landscaping took a beating. Some of the palms lining the streets died as did some of the foliage around the sites. Then in early May Foley was hit with about 28" of rain in one day, causing the lake to flood all of the sites close to the lake along with the pool. Clubhouse and outer sites were okay. We got here a week later and the staff was hard at work. The damage from the winter has been mostly fixed. Some smaller palms have fronds that are damaged, but the rest is beautiful. Even replaced the dead/damaged trees lining the streets. As for the flooding, the sites have been cleaned. Flooded casitas are being repaired and it looks like most of that work has been completed. We wasted a good worry - this place is still super. The staff makes the difference. The office staff is the best ever.

There are 2 parts to this RV park. Anchor Cove is on the west end. It is located adjacent to the outdoor rental facility and right on the bay. The roads are dirt, sites are dirt, and many are very shaded. Bring a broom because there is sand everywhere. There is 30 amp service and water (no sewer and no cable). This is really designed for TTs, pop ups, and tents. On the east end is Battleship Row. This is laid out for motorhomes and 5th wheels. Roads are paved and so are pads. Pads are wide but somewhat short (but adequate). There is 50 amp service, water, and sewer. No cable. Some sites are shaded. The bay is actually across a wide area of concrete used in days past for the tie down of sea planes - so you can see the water from the front row, but it is not really water front. Both areas have a beach; but this is bay water and tinted from the rivers feeding it. There are pavilions for picnics. There are playgrounds, disc golf, mini-golf, fishing etc for the kids - but some of the facilities are suffering from lack of maintenance ($). If you are navigating here with GPS plug in 1100 Bronson Road in Pensacola. If you use the intersection of Bronson and Lillian (Rt 98) you will find yourself a half mile off to the west. If you arrive on weekends or evenings, the registration process is confusing. You go find a site that is empty (note that you have avoid those with a small blue or white card posted showing that although the site looks empty, the resident has simply driven off in his class B or C rig). So you need a site with no one in it and no card in the holder. Then occupy the site, and then drive back to the gate to register. Note that the access road to the RV park is long and takes a few turns - just stay on it. There is only one road with signs at the end pointing to each part of the park. Lots of places to walk dogs although no off leash area. Boat ramps are available. Full time staff in the gate house / office was very helpful. The part time office staff - not so much. This place is about 9 miles west of the Naval Aviation museum and the Blue Angels. It is 30 minutes to downtown Pensacola and the historical district. Good base to tour the area.

This COE campground is near Georgetown and Sun City. Although near Georgetown, it is really rural. Access road is good, but look out for the deer which are everywhere. Campground is gated. The northern loop is 30 amp only. The southern loop is now all 50 amp (although COE allows tent campers to suck up these sites rather than limiting them to rigs which need 50 amp). Lots of trees and cactus. Many birds and deer. Our site was away from the lake, and it was a deserted area; while the sites by the lake were busy. But, on weekdays, the whole area is quiet. No sewer hookups in the park, but the dump site is handy. No cable and due to the trees, the only TV is OTA. All the sites are paved, with BBQs (clean) and shelters (some screened). If you have a boat, note that even the lake front sites are not water access due to the drop off to the lake and the rocks - you have to use the boat ramp. If you have a dog, there are lots of places to walk the dogs, but there are lots of small round (really non painful) burrs. All in all this is a nice campground. Book well in advance via recreation.gov.

After reading the previous reviews, I had to go back and check that we had stayed in the same place! Access is pretty good, except for the very rough cattle guard entry which will really rock your coach. There are signs posted that alert the traveler that there is "no propane", "no camp store", and "no dump station". Interior roads are dirt. Sites are dirt. This place is in the open so the dirt does blow. The sites are very narrow unless you get one on the end. They are so narrow (and divided by wooden posts and thorny vines) that we had to keep moving the coach to get the slides out. The sites are also very short. You will have an issue unless you get a site at the very back of the park so your toad can stick out in the open area. Dumpster is an old open trailer. The dog run is a 10x20 dirt area with 2' chicken wire around it. This place is adjacent to I-25 so there is lots of truck noise (but the aircraft flying overhead and the trains block out some of the truck noise!). The place is very dark at night, and all the signs promoting guns makes one wonder about the security. The horse stables and facilities are far better than the RV park. The saving grace for this place is the location. There are few RV parks on I-25 south of Albuquerque, and if you are coming east on US 60, there is nothing at all for hours. I will agree that the staff is friendly. The balloon festival was starting, so there were no discounts.

We were looking for a park in Phoenix to visit Talliesen West in Scottsdale, and were disappointed in the parks available in those areas. We came across Eagle View by chance. This park is run by an Indian tribe and is associated with a hotel and casino about 1/4 mile away. Access is great. Interior roads are all paved and very wide. Sites are paved, long, and wide. All are back in sites, but access to each is easy. No shade, but this is the desert. The pads are wide, and there is a gravel and landscaped area between the sites. There is desert landscaping that is very well maintained. The entire park is spotless. It is well lit at night and has a roving security guard. There is a nice (but shallow) pool and a hot tub, and a nice club house with pool table. It offers a continental breakfast. Lots of places to walk a dog and there is a medium sized off leash area. Utilities are very good as is the cable. I would not say this is a park for kids (only saw one in 5 days); as there is no playground, etc. This is near a casino so it draws an older/adult crowd. It is off the road so it is very quiet. There is a service station with diesel on the entrance road. This place is surrounded by open range, and you will see signs of wild horses, etc. Great views of mountains. We understand that in the winter you have to make reservations well in advance. Very helpful staff. We have determined that if you want to visit the east side of Phoenix / Scottsdale area, this is the best place to stay.

The park is a little of the highway, but the directions are good. Staff was friendly but disorganized. Interior roads and sites are dirt. Dog run was gravel. There are small trees and a nice hedge along the road. Sites are level but a little tight. There is a storage area that you can walk your dog in. The entire park is very, very dusty. The dust covers the picnic tables, benches, and everything else. There are quite a few long (very long) term residents on the south side of the park (some have fenced in their sites). Cable was pretty good. WiFi was pretty good. This place is good for an overnight stop when going from Phoenix to Las Vegas.

The directions in the directories are okay. Access into the park is good. Interior roads are narrow but paved (and with speed bumps). Sites are paved and level, but they are short and very narrow. The pull thru sites are shaded, but they appear to be seasonal or long term campers. The park is very clean and neat. They even want you to wash your vehicles to keep the appearance up. This park is only 1/2 block from Route 9, but the noise is blocked by the back of the stores in the adjacent shopping center. Staff was curt. Quite frankly, this appears to be the Sun City of RV parks - folks roost here in Gods anteroom. One of the biggest issues is the fact there are no places to walk a dog -- as in nowhere. We even had to sign a long small print dog agreement as to liability, cost of not picking up poop, etc. The office says you can walk your dog anywhere in the park, but some owners have signs up that say "no dogs". If you have a fish or a cat as a pet, you may be okay, but if you have a dog or two, you are not going to be happy. This is the best campground among many poor choices in the area. Others who rated this a 10 have no dogs, no kids, and are waiting to be "called".

Since this place is in the middle of nowhere, we were somewhat apprehensive to stop here. We wasted a good worry. Access is good. Interior roads are gravel as are the sites. Sites are long and level. Staff (owners) are great. We could get 50 channels just on our antenna. Wi-Fi was very good. Got a better AT&T signal than at home. There is a truck stop just north of the park. Smallish dog run, but the park is adjacent to lots of ATV trails where you can walk your dogs for miles. Nice grass by the sites. The owners are working hard to make this a really nice place to come and stay for a few days and use an ATV or hike. You can see I-15 in the distance, but you can't hear it. We were really surprised and impressed. Place is neat and clean. Great place to stay en route to the southern Utah national parks.

The last person who rated this place must have been related to the owners. When they answered the phone it was as "Pocatello KOA"; well, it ain't! I am sure they could not make the minimums for a KOA, and their franchise was lost, and they are just using the existing directories to get business. Another camper told us the same thing. (All they did was take down the yellow KOA sign.) Access is up a narrow road. Interior roads are dirt and sites are short, narrow, and dirt. Trees have not been trimmed in years. There are lots of drop offs and holes when parking so you have to have a ground guide. To the east is a dusty dirt road. To the south is an old mobile home park. To the west are a couple of mobile homes. The few picnic tables are in awful shape. You have to watch where you walk since the fire pits are made from a washing machine tubs sunk into the ground. Quite a few long termers in the west part of the park. Camp store has not been restocked since they lost their franchise. Nowhere to walk dogs. There is a 10 x 15 dog run which is dirt and poop. This place is totally unkempt, ghastly, dreadful. Do not be fooled by the grass by the sign - its the only grass in the place. I would never ever consider staying here again. What a dump!

We have stayed in KOA campgrounds all across the country. By far, this is the nicest. Directions in the directory are accurate. Access road is paved. Interior roads are paved/gravel. Sites are gravel, but level and long. There is lots of room between the sites with grass and nice landscaping. There are all new cabins around the edge of the park. Each site has a fire ring, picnic table, and benches. For a little more you can get a premium site with a beautiful patio set with umbrella and a stainless BBQ, with cement patio. This park is surrounded by mountains so you can sit outside and look at the scenery. Camp store is well equipped. Staff was great. Pool and hot tub at the end of the season were still heated. Lots of places to walk dogs. Looks like the park is going to be expanded. The only shortcoming is that with all the land they have, there is no off leash dog run - although rumor is that they will put one in. Hope it is big for big dogs. It takes 5 minutes to be in West Glacier and another 3 or 4 to be at the entry to the park. No highway noise - this place is so quiet you can hear your heart beat. We would love to visit here again. With an off leash park this would be a 15!

Access from I-90 was good. Interior roads are paved, but very narrow. Sites are gravel and level but pretty short. Campground store is very nice and sells wine and beer. Staff was helpful. Sites are shaded. Interior roads are not marked and confusing. We saw one poor soul drive around and around trying to find his site. This park is located by the Yellowstone river, but the river (which is mud by this point) can't be accessed. There is a pond, but it is just a drainage lagoon. This is KOA # 1 (really). It is old, but the owners have put plenty of lipstick on it (paint, bushes, flowers) so it would qualify as a mid level KOA (Resort, Holiday, Journey). This is now deemed a Holiday. It is okay. No one visits Billings to stay here. There is a truck stop nearby. No highway noise. They do advertise a fenced dog park, but is designed for midget dogs just as most KOA dog parks are. We would stay here again.

Directions in KOA directory are good. Access is good. Interior roads are paved, but really narrow. Sites are gravel and short and narrow. This place is weird. It was made an RV park 66 years ago, and the city grew around it. The west side is surrounded by 2 story apartments. The north side is a series of houses. The south side is a city school bus barn that dispatches its buses right thru the RV park. The east side is houses backed up to a shopping center (Kohls, TJ Maxx, etc.). Two blocks away is Cosco and Lowes. This is an RV park in an urban area. Lots of highway and street noise. Very little privacy. Office is well equipped and staff is friendly. But, they automatically stick you in a 'premium' site which means you get a wooden swing. They advertise 2 fenced dog runs - but one is for midget dogs, and the other is not much better. (Why won't KOA put in good fenced dog areas?) There are some long term residents. There are few shower/bath houses and folks were lined up in the morning. If going to Glacier NP, skip this place and continue West to the turn north where you will find a few privately owned parks which appear to be well cared for. We would skip this place next time.

This RV park is not a resort. It appears to have been built in the 1950s and hasn't seen much in upgrades over the years. Roads and pads are dirt. There are nice grass tent sites on the south and west sides. There are a number of cabins that seem to be in pretty poor repair. A car lot has been established on the north side and the part adjoining the park looks like a junk yard. An old dumpster is right at the entrance. I think the Sturgis motorcycle rally keeps this place open.

This is right off I-90 at exit 17, but you can't hear any highway noise. Roads and pads are all paved. There is quite a bit of space between sites. Landscaping is beautiful, but the drought has hurt the grass between the sites. There are trees, but they are too small for shade. The cabins are beautiful, and the landscaping around them is amazing with plants and sculptures. Beautiful. The office is huge and sells beautiful gifts (no Chinese stuff here) limited food items, and alcohol. The wine selection is actually pretty good. Nice large pool area. Staff is great. Two large off lease dog runs. There is also a nature walk. This place is just 10 minutes to Deadwood and a perfect place to stay while visiting the northern end of the Black Hills.

Access remains good. As usual there is no one in the office, so pick a site and register outside the office. Drought has beat up the grass. Interior roads are getting potholed. Utilities are good. Sites are short considering longer RVs. There are small trees, but they are too small to give shade. We have stayed here lots of times, and it is pretty good. Will stay here again.

Access is a little confusing; but if coming off the interstate, take the left right before the gas station - it looks like the driveway. No KOA sign. interior roads and pads are gravel, but hard and level. Utilities are good. Although next to the interstate, it was pretty quiet. No off leash dog area (what is wrong with KOA?) but good grass areas to walk the boss. WiFi stinks but you can link to the nearby motel and playground. This place is one of the cleanest KOA's we have used. We would stay here again.

Access to the park is good. Interior roads are gravel except for one road thru the park. Sites are all gravel. The gravel is pea gravel that has been rolled, so roads and sites are in good shape. Sites are long and level with grass, fire ring, and table between them. Lots of places to walk dogs. There is an off leash area, but the small dog area is for teacup dogs, and the big dog area is really for miniatures! Unlike the two adjacent RV parks, this is behind a dealer and a sound wall, so it is pretty quiet and shielded from the highway noise. Cable if very basic, so if you want to use a satellite, get a spot in the very back (the sites nearer the office have large trees blocking signals). Wifi signal is pretty good, but speed (bandwidth) is poor - we anticipate wifi would be awful with the park full. Water, electric, etc checked out fine. Staff was friendly. This place is located well for all the country music venues and the Hermitage. Camping World is 3 minutes away. All in all, we would stay here again. Price reflects a 15% discount, so it is a bit pricy.

This campground is located over two ridges. Entry is from the west, up a steep drive. The main road through the park is paved and wide. At the top of the driveway is located the office, pool, pavilion, cabins, and the drive through sites. The loop roads and pads are a mixture of dirt and gravel; but the sites are fairly level. Other than the pads, the rest of the park is pretty steep. The entry road, as it passes the office, drops down between the ridge lines, and then back up the other ridge. This main road is a 30 to 40 percent grade. It had rained hard, and the owners spread some straw down to cover some of the mud between the sites. Between the ridges there is a playground, but it is adjacent to a murky pond. There are hiking trails, but most are in disrepair, and the whole place is covered with poison ivy. Lots of web worms dropping from the trees at this time of year. I rated this as not pet friendly since there is no where to walk the dogs that is not on a steep slope and, although there is room, there is no off leash area. Dog waste cans were never emptied and bag dispensers were empty. Office staff was great. The noise here is overwhelming. This park is adjacent to I-40. On the east side of the park, there is a cliff with a TA truck shop at the bottom. Guess we would stay here again if passing through on I-40.

What a surprise this place was. It is about 2 miles south of Kure Beach. The first impression you get is from the brightly painted WWII quarters that are now guest houses. They look pretty beat up on the outside, but are reportedly okay inside (and there is a program to replace them). Further on there is a small RV park on the right side. If you continue on to the museum you will find the registration building and some more sites. Only one site by the registration building is 50 amp. The others in the RV park have 30 amp. In all cases the utilities are in some odd places. You need to have sewer, water, and electric extensions to place your RV where you would want it. The registration building has a gift shop. The pool and bar & grill were still closed (open Memorial day). All utilities are good. Cable is great. WiFi is almost non-existent. For WiFi, go park next to the rec center, or building 122. There is no dog run, but there are acres of places to walk your dog. There is a boat launch and fishing pier. If you have AT&T the service is very bad. Canoes, bikes, and golf carts are for rent. Our recommendation is go drive to Southport, and take the ferry over the river ($15). You do not have to unhook, and they take class A's. If you take the ferry, just head north on "the" road, and Fort Fisher is only about half a mile. As others have said, this is a hidden gem. Recommend you call for reservations.

We have stayed at this park numerous times over the past years, starting when it was still run by Outdoor Resorts. It is now basically a set of condo type lots run by a board. First the good aspects. The big shade trees are still here. The roads and most of the pads are still in good shape. As for the parts that are not so good. The landscaping is suffering. Some owners have beautiful lots with pads that are in great shape. But about a third of the lots seem to be owned by absentee owners who just don't care. A few of those pads are in awful shape. Our site had a patio set with a broken umbrella and a table and chair set: lbut 3 of the chairs had the seats rotted out. Quite a few of the lots have RVs on them that date back decades and have not been moved in years (some have mold growing on them). Although this was once a class A only resort, they now advertise that they accept both A's and C's: but we saw at least a few class B motorhomes. The dog waste bag dispensers were empty and the disposal cans full from Friday through Monday. It just seems like the management is "hands off" or never walks around the place. Although they put in an off leash dog park a couple of years back, note that it is really tiny. The Rate reflects a FMCA discount (cash only) and the $5 per night utility surcharge and a $5 per night activity fee.

We stay in lots of KOAs while on the road. We thought we had stayed in the worst KOA ever, but this made it a tie. Location is good. Although it's adjacent to I-10, it is really about 2 miles around in a loop to get to the campground. Access road is pretty good. Staff was friendly, but really disorganized. All of the roads in the park are a mixture of dirt and beach sand which is somewhat soft. In some spots the roads are just mud. The sites are the same dirt/sand mixture and the dirt gets tracked into the coach. Electric was okay. Since the guy next to us had 3 filters on his hose, we decided to use our on-board water. The sewer connections are just slabs of cement with a cement plug. The dump station was inoperable. There are lots of KOA Kabins, and port-a-potties at the end of each row (like in a construction zone). It appears the sewer system is failing. Many of the campers seem to be occupied by full time occupants; and those campers are mostly in awful shape. The one next to us even had his Frosty the Snowman decoration up in April. Some appear to have been abandoned. Another had a wet recliner on a deck along with an old freezer. It looks like the owner and family live in a number of trailers at the end of the property. There is a "stage" which is an old TT with the slide out removed and the "stage" lined with old tarps. Picnic tables are dirty and broken. Lots of old burned charcoal and dog waste laying around. Ants everywhere. The pool was empty. There is a playground which we did not check out. No where to walk your dogs except down to the swampy west end of the campground. The tent area was just a field with a couple of faucets in it. The folks at the KOA headquarters never inspected this place. The park looks pretty good as you go by on I-10, but it is a mess. We could not get out fast enough in the morning.

This is our third visit to this park, and we always say that this is the nicest park we have been to. You can pick your site off the internet. The site we had was a pull-in overlooking the lake. All the sites are concrete and level. The roads are very wide. It rained hard one day and the drainage is very good. Restrooms, showers, and laundry are all spotless. The clubhouse is very nice and clean. There is even a computer-equipped business center. The pool and hot tub were spotless. The west side of the park has beenspaved and developed to the point of waiting for buyer. You are only a few minutes to Gulfshores and the beach, and about 30 minutes to Fairhope (if you want to visit a beautiful artistic community). Best of all, the Bella Terra staff is amazing and the front office staff is the best we have seen. We will be back again.

We were delayed on our trip and we could get into this park despite the ongoing nearby state fair. Staff was delightful and very helpful. Access to the park is good. Interior roads are paved, but narrow with some pretty tight turns. Sites are paved, but narrow, and some are pretty short. Wi-Fi is Tengo and we could not get on. Cable is very basic. Water pressure was okay. The electric system is in some disrepair and required us to move when the breakers fell into the box. We rated the park as not family friendly since a canal runs through it, and the water is very dark, seems to be deep, and the banks are very steep. If a kid falls in, you may not get the kid back. The lake seems to be a little better. Otherwise there is nothing for a kid to do. Good for an overnight on the road and we would probably stay there again.

This would be a 10, except for no picnic tables and no off-leash dog run. But, this is a beautiful, well maintained RV park. It is beautiful with long and wide paved sites, wide paved roads, and well maintained grass and trees. This is the cleanest park we have ever been to. Utilities are good. Wi-Fi is excellent. Cable is great. Water pressure is 50 psi. There is some minor road noise during rush hour - but that was with our windows open. The manager was very friendly and helpful. This is only 1.5 miles from Texas A&M and the Bush Presidential Library. The issues with access are pretty much resolved. Just head south on FM 2818 right past the airport, until you get to Holleman Drive. Be in the right lane because immediately after Holleman you will see a sign for "Local Access Road". Bear right onto the access road and the RV park is on the right just a hundred yards up the road. If you miss the driveway just go the stop sign, take a right and go to the stop sign, and take another right and follow the road around and it will turn into the intersection with 2818 again. Again, access is not a problem. We would stay here again.

We have stayed here frequently, and always gave it a pretty good rating; but the philosophy of the management has changed. For positives, the pull through pads and interior roads are paved. Back in sites are dirt. Propane is easy to get to. Water pressure is good. On the other hand, all the tent sites are replaced with cabins. A few tents did go up in back in sites which are really rocky. Landscaping is mostly dead or dying (probably due to the drought and no watering). The program to get rid of the burrs which stick into dog's feet has been discontinued, and there are lots of burrs. The long promised fenced dog run has not been started, and now the park dog who snarled at approaching dogs is on the other side of the dog walk fence. Electric at our first site kept shorting out, requiring us to move (maybe someone needs to check out the system). Most disturbing was being gouged for the cost. We called and made a reservation. We were told that we would have to pay a premium rate for 4 days due to the Austin formula 1 race. And, we would have to pay a premium for the rest of the stay due to thanksgiving. The price quoted was $579 for 7 days - no weekly rate & no cancellation refunds. The story was that they were packed. (During the race the park was about 25% full; the race being about 30 miles away,) the park was more full for thanksgiving, but still not full. We made a think about the cost (Bella Terra is only $300 per week.). We got a call back and the gave us a break on he race rate, and on check in tacked on $70 for the week for our 3 dogs ; this with almost no where to walk them! Also note that the I130 toll road is open and the noise in the park has increased greatly. And yes, the small yapping dogs from the house next door are still there. We decided to never use this KOA again. There are nicer parks on the other side of the interstate.

Access is tricky since you have to drive into the gas station. You have to go slow and look for the little sign. On the good side, sites are paved as are the streets. The park is very clean. It is super secure with locking vehicle & people gates. It is also well lit. On the down side, there is nowhere for a dog to walk. There is nothing to occupy a kid. And, this is the second noisiest RV park in the world (we have also been in #1). It is 50 ft from I -10 and at tire level. Adjacent to a gas station, a McDonalds. and next to a high school football field. Earplugs help somewhat. Staff seems put out to take your money.

This is on US 7 or Lee Blvd just to the west of Lawton. It appears to be a recycled mobile home park. Small sites located behind a mini storage facility in a so-so area of town. Its a parking lot. No shade. No amenities. Only bright spot is that it is near Ft Sill & Wichita Mountain Wildlife Refuge.

This is a gem. Road and pads are paved. Landscaping is nice. Everything is spotless. Staff is wonderful. The park is expanding so number of sites is on the low side. No high pressure sales - don't have to. Great dog park. Fantastic clubhouse. All the owners, staff, & guests get along. We have stayed here before and will again. This really is a resort.

If you own a Tiffin motor home, eventually you will end up here. Basically, its the waiting area for the maintenance facility. (Got to note: Tiffins service is great.) Wi-Fi is okay, but is somewhat weak far from the office, and is non existent in the west overflow area. Staff is helpful. Biggest complaint from everyone is the dust. The sites and other areas are mostly gravel, and crushed by the coaches. The white dust is everywhere. When it rains, the dust turns to thin white plaster.

What a gem! Huge park. Lots of tall trees. Very clean. Paved roads and pads. Recommend you get one on the river front. The sites are all back in without sewer except for a very few that are reserved for long termers receiving treatment at medical center. Staff helpful. Bring your boat - it has a boat ramp. This would be a resort if it had sewer, cable and wifi.

This park is 6 miles south of Savannah. It is located behind a closed rural truck stop. There are only 8 to 10 hook up sites; although there is lots of space to dry camp or tent. Camp store is very limited. Very small laundry and rest rooms. Roads and pads are gravel. Sites are close to level. No dog run, but lots of places to walk the pooch. Park advertises free wifi, but you have to be within 100 ft of the office to get a signal. Water and sewer worked great. No shutoff on electric box, but tested good. Staff was helpful. It is 16 miles to Shiloh battlefield going north back thru Savannah. We drove by Pickwick dam campground and it smelled awful due to the nearby paper plant.

Other than Osage state park, this is the only camping near Bartlesville. Wah-sha-she state park now belongs to the Osage tribe and there is no info on their website re the park, and the tribal HQ phone goes unanswered. Riverside is by a river (creek), but there is no access. There are only 4 pull thru sites. Most sites are without sewer and are 30 amp. Sites are really small. Roads and pads are gravel. Laundry and clubhouse are in old trailers. Many sites are occupied by permanent residents. The water and cable were good. Electric tested safe. WiFi is so weak as to be worthless. The best aspects of the park are the friendly & helpful staff, and the fact that a paved bike walking path is adjacent to the park. Don't expect a resort. Its just a place to park.

This park is really in West Memphis, just off I-55 and about 6 miles north of I-40. Access is good. Interior roads are gravel. Most pads are gravel, but some are cement. Water and electric were good, but the cable TV did not work on our site, or the one next to ours. They have installed a pet run, but it is the typical 10x20 fenced run and cluttered with exercise equipment. (When will KOA learn?). We were charged an extra $2 per night per pet! This despite us having a VIP card to show were were frequent KOA guests. The park is surrounded by flooded farm fields, which means mosquitos come summer. There is a lot of noise from the adjacent I-55, from barges on the river, and from trains which have to announce their approach to the bridges. So if you are a light sleeper you may have trouble. All in all, its okay, and it is the only game in town, but the price is pretty high for what you get.

Access is down some narrow winding roads. Interior roads are gravel. Pads are gravel. Lots to keep kids busy. They have a tiny fenced dog run (tiny must be a KOA policy). The full time/seasonal sites are level. Most other sites are not. This park is on a hillside, so bring extra jack pads. We used about 10 inches on the down hill side, and we have an HWH system. Camp store was complete and staff was helpful. One problem is that the park has horses, and the place is riddled with nails.

Directions are a bit confusing, but your GPS will get you to the gate. Access is good. Interior roads and sites are gravel. This is a retired farm surrounded by fields and has shade trees throughout. It is a beautiful campground. Staff was helpful but did know how to apply any of my thousands of KOA points against my bill (corporate problem?). Lots of places to walk the dogs, but they installed a postage stamp size dog park, despite acres of space. This is near Hershey and Amish country. Nice place to stay. Fix the dog park and this would be a 9 or 10.

This park is about 20 minutes from Acadia National Park. Rate reflects the early season rate. If you want to visit this gem of a national park, do it during mid May. Access to the RV park is very good. Interior roads are paved. Sites are gravel; and some in the lower parts of the park can be soft after a good rain. Wi-Fi was good. Water pressure was good. The 5 or 6 cross roads on the upper levels are seasonal sites. All the seasonal sites were neat except for a few on roads 1 & 2. All the daily sites are pull-throughs and are a little narrow, but so long you can pull in so you don't see your neighbor. Staff was friendly and gave us lots of great info on the national park & the area. You really cannot walk your dogs in the surrounding forest due to the thickness of the trees and bogs. Don't know why there is no off leash area for dogs since there is a perfect spot for one at the far end of the park. The seasonal sites are shaded, but the others are not.

This park is about 9 miles from downtown Freeport and LL Bean. Call for directions. The road to the park is fairly well maintained. The access road, interior roads, and pads are dirt. There is Wi-Fi, but it is very weak, and you have to go to the office and get a pass code if you use more than 2 hours (so it may not be free for more than 2 hours). There are very limited number of pull-through and 50 amp sites. There is a mix of shaded and open sites (the pull-throughs are in the open). Sites are big. There are lots of places to walk your dog - but no fenced off leash area (but the owners promises that he is putting one in next year). Due to the trees, satellite access is limited and there is no cable, but antenna pulls in the Portland stations. Staff is friendly and helpful. Lots of kids activities. There is a good playground for the kids. All in all its a pretty good park. If it had cable, better Wi-Fi, and a dog park it would be a 10.

This is the closest park to Sturbridge Village. The access road is good. Interior roads, other than the entry, are dirt. Pads are dirt. They advertise 50 amp service, but we looked all over and could only find 30. They only have sewer in the 300 area, and then there are only about 20 sites with sewer. They also say they have pull through sites, but what they give you is two short back to back sites. It does have a lake, but it is really a pond and all the sites are taken by seasonal campers. The place has two big problems. First, the park is in disrepair. They have a mini golf for kids that is a wreck. Roads are washboard. Water system is just lines laid on the ground and ours leaked. Second, neither the owners nor the tenants have any pride in appearance. There are many very old travel trailers; so old they are covered in green mold. Some people are using pop ups covered with tarps as seasonal or permanent camp sites. Many of the sites are trashy with all sorts of junk around the trailers. Some even have old rusty refrigerators outside. Some have boots stuffed with dirt as a border. Obviously the owners of the park have no rules on how big a mess you can create. In the summer when everyone shows up for extended stays this must be hell. We were really disappointed in this Yogi Bear.

This is the closest park to the FDR museum, etc. Access is down a narrow but well maintained road. Interior roads are paved & gravel. Site are gravel are hard packed dirt and stone. This is a rustic park with big trees. It is carved into a hillside; but the guide can get you in and out of the sites. About 75% of the park is for seasonal sites; but they are well maintained. We were here in early May and it was deserted, but we anticipate that it will be busy and noisy in the summer when school is out. In May it was very quiet. No off-leash dog area, but the owner is considering putting one in. All the facilities are well maintained. Staff was very helpful. We would stay here again.

This park is located near Milton on I-80. It is on a narrow but passable road and about 5 miles from the I-80 / US 15 interchange. Interior roads are hard gravel as are the pads. Most pull through sites are not shaded and near the front. Others are in the trees. The latter are big sites. There are many seasonal sites but all are very neat. Wi-fi was good. Cable is basic. Lots of places to walk dogs, but no dog off leash area despite acres of land. Staff was helpful. Good spot to overnight. This was our second stay here.

If you want to camp at Harper's Ferry, this is the place. It is the only place. First the good parts. It is within feet of the National Park; in fact some of the artillery positions are within the campground. Access is good. Camp store is very large and well supplied. Now, the rest of the story. The place is not in good shape. It appears all the money is going into the main parking lot, the registration / store building, and more and more cabins (lots of them). There are a surprising number of long time campers and the sites are not well kept. Interior roads are a mixture of gravel and degraded paving. Sites are rough gravel (but level). The place needs a cleaning crew: picnic tables are broken and dirty, some fire rings are broken and rusted out, the dog park was filled with dog waste. Staff is friendly but clueless. Cable is basic only and there is no channel guide. There is no info on the national park in the office. Wi-Fi stinks in that you cannot pull up the IP address so can't get on. It got a KOA President's Award, but we think they all get that.

First the good parts. Access is good. Interior roads are paved and gravel. Lots of areas to walk dogs (but no off leash area). Nice camp store. Now for the not so good parts. The rate reflects a premium site with a discount; and the site was by the activity barn, dumpster, and dog walk. The premium sites are back to back with the RV portion of the site paved and the other half gravel. The sites are long, but really narrow. In some sites when you depart you have to drive over a grass field which could be a problem in the rain and soft ground. Cable TV is basic only. Wifi is TengoNet and you get 1 hour free per day, and then have to pay. Really. A golf course borders the south side, but there are also two busy highways and a railroad, so it is not as quiet as you would think. Staff was not helpful at all. If you want to tour Harper's Ferry, be advised that it is about 50 minutes away. Next time I will stay at one of the campgrounds down the road at Luray. This place was okay for a night, but expensive for what you get.

Access is down a narrow but passable road. The interior roads are a mix of paved and gravel. The pads are gravel. This park is pretty hilly so bring extra blocks. It looks like the current owners are putting in new pads, bathrooms, cabins, etc. The park is well maintained and the staff is very helpful. Park is very close to Blue Ridge parkway. It is very quiet. Wi-Fi is good. This is a nice place to stay overnight or to tour the parkway. We would stay here again.

Very good campground, and we are picky. First the bad. Wi-Fi is not very strong and often overwhelmed. Also, access out of the park is into a high traffic area, so better turn with the flow and U turn toward Charleston. There are 13 small yellow walls across the road referred to as speed humps and they could damage your tow bar (but there is room to unhook/hook up at the entry). And, it is somewhat difficult to get satellite TV reception due to tall trees. Now the good part. The park is big. The pads vary from grass to gravel to cement, but all are wide and long. It is clean. Staff is helpful. And, for bonus points from us, this has the biggest off leash dog run we have ever encountered. It is quiet. This is the best park for a visit to Charleston and we would stay here again.

This park is still a treat to visit. Roads and facilities are still first class. Staff is friendly and helpful. The road outside the park has better traffic flow with the installation of a traffic circle. The only shortcoming is the tiny dog run covered in pine straw and thorny ground cover. And, it appears with more Class C RVs and absentee owners, some sites in areas away from the clubhouse and the lake seem run down, with dirty pads, and dead landscaping. Some loops are beautiful, and some are starting to look like a KOA.. Some owners just don't seem to care. Note that this park is no longer associated with outdoor resorts and is now owner owned.

This is a difficult park to review. It was a dairy farm. It is being converted into a garden center/farm supply store/event facility/RV park. First, the bad. This place only caters to self contained rigs. The shower facilities are about 1/4 mile down the road at the old farmhouse. Some of the out buildings are in pretty rough shape. Biggest problem is that the roads are crushed limestone and the people who live on the place fly on the road and raise clouds of white dust. Now the good. This place is huge, with 400 acres of fields and woods and 30 acres of ponds. It is beautiful with rolling and flat mowed fields and 250 year old live oak trees. There are paddocks for horses and lots of places to walk dogs (no dog run). There are 12 pull in sites along the access road with W/S/E. All sites are 50 amp. There is a "C" area in a grassy field with about 4 sites (E only). The best sites are B 1,2,3 which are very private under the oaks. There are lots of places to dry camp. Access from road is great. Its 4 miles to Savannah. Staff is helpful. If we come to Savannah again we will stay here. Beautiful place.

Despite earlier reviews, access into park is simple. The park has lots of signs to follow. Staff is friendly and very helpful. Interior roads are paved and gravel. Sites are gravel. Mix of shaded and open sites. Sites are long, but a little narrow. If it rains avoid sites 137 to 141 since all but the pad become muddy and flooded. There is a large open area to walk dogs (no fenced run). Half the park is long term, but the sites are very neat. We would stay here again.

Access to the park off county road 269 is good (but there will be construction on that road in the near future so call ahead). Park has upgraded its office and the laundry and baths. Bathrooms are spotless as is the laundry. Landscaping has suffered due to the drought and there are quite a few burrs in the grass (for those with dogs). The RV storage area where you used to be able to walk dogs is now fenced off. The planned dog run is still not in. There are some walking areas in nearby parks. The house to the west of the RV park is getting pretty run down, and there are lots of loose barking dogs there. Better sites are to the middle to east side of the RV park. We have stayed here before and will again.

I thought we had not stayed here before, until we drove up to the office. What was I thinking? Access is okay. If there are two rigs coming in, one will be hanging in the road. There is a Loves and Flying-J at the exit from I-40. Staff is friendly. The entire park is gravel except for the sort of play area at the west end which is primarily burrs. Internal roads are narrow and sites and short and narrow. Utilities worked okay although they appear to have been put in during WWII. Someone put down that there are shaded sites. There are skimpy water starved tall bushes which can be a problem for some slideouts. The slogan for the area is "Tucumcari Tonight" which means that after Tucumcari there is nothing until Amarillo or Flagstaff, so might as well find a spot here.

Access from I-40 is good. Staff was friendly. Park is very small (crammed). The roads are gravel and pads are road bed type gravel. There is a run down playground. The dog walk area is dirt (no run).

This is okay for an overnight when you are arriving in Holbrook and the day has been long.

Access to the park is good. Interior roads in older (east section) are asphalt, and gravel otherwise. All sites are hard packed gravel. East section has lots of shade trees. The newer section (40 sites) to the west is a large open gravel lot with no trees (but it is ideal for giant rigs). Sites have fire rings and picnic tables. Whole place is clean. Laundry is clean with large washers. The outside pool was closed, but we could use the indoor pool in the inn. Lots of places to walk dogs (but watch out for the herds of deer in the evening and morning). Water pressure was good. Wi-Fi is great in the newer area. There is good cable in the newer area. About 1 mile to the Bryce visitors center. Rubys Inn offers restaurants, liquor, auto repairs, limited groceries, horse and ATV rentals, gas and diesel, and about anything you can think of (its really a mini city). We would stay here again. And in mid October the park and national park were not crowded.

Access to the park is very good, but you have to watch for the sign. Park is set back from the road so there is no road noise. Views all around are of the mountains. Interior roads are good asphalt with gravel pads. Pads are fairly level, but a bit narrow with beat up grass between the sites. There are some trees throughout the park. Cable is very good. Wi-fi is excellent. Water pressure is good. The park is really two parks in one. The older north section has gravel pads and a very small dog run. There are also two "swimming holes" which are spring fed and clear. The owners also own an adjacent property on the south end. You can walk and drive into it. That is being developed as private owner lots which are rented out when not occupied by the owners. Those have cement pads and more landscaping. They are fairly wide since the owner has the option of building a casita on the site. For that section there is a small club house, pool, and beautiful dog run. You are not supposed to go into the owner section if you are staying in the northern section (signs are posted), but you can walk or drive in to look around. The park is adjacent to the Green River so it is in the flood plain. The park owners have put up a levy to the west to protect the park and the casitas. That not only keeps the flood water out, but also restricts drainage. Mosquitoes could be a problem in the summer - but in October there were no bugs and this was not an issue. You can also walk your dog on the levy. Staff was helpful. This park is not listed in Woodalls, but appears to be one of the two better parks in Moab. It is 2 miles from Arches and about a mile into town. We would stay here again.

Access is good. Interior roads and pads are gravel. Everything else is thick grass. There are trees, but they are not large. Close to the store, restaurant, etc. Truck stop 1/4 mile away. Cabelas has made this larger in recent past and has plans to put in cabins. This is the place to stay if you are passing by or going to the Black Hills on 385. Unless it is a holiday, the office is vacant and payment, etc is basically on an honor system. We would stay here again.

Access to the park is good via the access road. Staff helpful. Interior road to the office is new asphalt. The rest of the park (roads, pads, dog walk areas, all of it) is large rough gravel. Only place to walk a dog is down an off site dirt road. To the north you can see bare dirt hills. To the south you can see 7 very large oil storage tanks and the smell of crude oil is everywhere. Few street lights. More than half the park is permanent residents. There is a lot of road noise from the nearby access road and the interstate. Despite being close to the office, Wi-Fi was marginal. Cable TV was OK. This is a really lousy KOA. Might be better off stopping at the Wal-Mart in town. There is another RV park west of here, and we may try it next time.

This is not Creekside or Creekside Mountain RV Park. They are nearby and the signs are located very close together. Crooked Creek has a creek running right through it. Access is good. Roads are gravel as are pads. Pads are level, and long and wide. All have picnic tables and fire rings. Road noise is muted. Water pressure is OK (35 psi). Good electric and basic cable. Wi-Fi was very good. Staff was business like, but helpful. This place is very clean. Cans are recycled. Lots of plush grass under pine trees. Lots of places to walk the dogs since this is adjacent to the Mickelson Trail (you can walk over a wooden bridge over the creek and be on it). This place even smells good. We would certainly stay here again.

Easy access. Interior roads asphalt in older part, gravel in new (upper) part. Pads gravel with hardstand for picnic tables. Sites are large and wide. There are a limited number of pull through sites so call ahead. This is a very quiet, neat and clean park. (Even the dumpsters are clean.) Staff was friendly and helpful. We called at 9 pm and were able to make a reservation. Lots of places to walk dogs in grassy area (and they fine you for not picking up your dog waste (which we applaud)). Shuttle to and from Mayo Clinic. No playground for kids since a lot of people staying here are going to Mayo; but there are quite a few overnight campers. There is some highway noise, but only at rush hour, and even then it is not bad due to the surrounding trees. Good cable TV. Good Wi-Fi. I would highly recommend this place over other parks in the area. We would stay here again.

Most KOA's are customer friendly. Not this place. We called again and again for a reservation and could not get anyone to answer the phone. Just got the answering machine and no one would call back. Then we got through, and they had to hang up since they were busy, and promised to call us right back; and they did not. Also be advised that the 50 amp sites are usually reserved for Mayo employees and patients. Also, be advised that they have a 2 dog limit. And, they even require small door mats.

This huge park is set up like a city with street names. It is very flat and level. Access is great. Tents are sited around the outside of the park. RV sites are rather strange. The sites are about 150 ft long. First rig arriving drives through both sites to the north side, and the second backs in; so the rigs are back to back. However, access to utilities is good. Parking area of the sites are narrow and gravel, but the entire site including grass are about 60' ft wide. There is no cable, but antenna and satellite comes in great. Wi-Fi is very good. Each site has a fire ring (free scrap wood) and table. Lots of places to walk your dog, but despite the size of the park, there is no dog run! Lots of gophers around. The park is 1/2 mile north of Amana (Amana colonies can be seen in 2 days, plus a day for the Hoover Library/Museum) so plan your trip since there are no refunds. Make a reservation if you need 50 amp full hookup since those are somewhat limited, and get a site facing north so you have afternoon shade from your rig. Staff checked you in but otherwise was absent. Grass was cut almost daily. Biggest issues we had were the pot holes in the gravel roads (really white dirt), and the awful dust from the roads. Everything looked like it was covered in baby powder, but this is the best place to stay to visit Amana.

This is also called the Alma / Fort Smith KOA. It is 2+ miles north of I-40 on route 71. Access is good. Interior roads are paved and sites are gravel and mostly level. There are some tight interior turns. There are some full timers, but the sites are neat. The park is nicely landscaped in a rural setting with some trees and large grassy areas. Pond is in the middle of the park with ducks and geese. Very neat park. Quiet. Water pressure is good. WiFi is good. Cable TV is spotty. Electric system is old with shotgun pull type connection vice circuit breaker; but the voltage and wiring is good (old park). Some pull through sites are side by side. We liked the place despite the rather crabby old gal in the office and the bossy and ill humored co-worker (hubby?) who got all over my wife driver for hesitating while pulling in, while I got out. The park is nice. The owners or managers need a personality transplant.

This park has become somewhat better over the past couple of years. Tiffin has started to dump recycled asphalt on the interior roads and has been rolling it, which cuts down on the great clouds of dust or thick mud encountered before. The new WiFi is pretty good over most of the park. The grass and weeds around the hookups needs to be trimmed, and the place could use a clean up since there is some trash around the sites. The areas along the interior roads needed to have the weeds cut. No dog run, but if you look around the area you can find places to walk your dogs. Avoid the eastern most row, since the yards backing up to the campground have hounds that bark at night. Staff is friendly and helpful. Remember this is a facility to accommodate rigs coming in for service, and considering that, the place is pretty good. There is a self service (gravel parking lot) about 1/4 mile south.

Sites are a bit narrow and somewhat short. A 43 foot motorhome will fill the cement pad, but there are lots of places to park a toad. Sites look level, but most will require some blocks to level the RV. Some sites are shaded. Each site has a picnic table. WiFi is excellent, as is the cable TV. Good water pressure. The park is very neat and clean and the staff was helpful. Although there is no fenced dog run, there are lots of places to walk your dog. If it had a fenced dog run, it would be a 10.

This park is only .2 mile west of I-49. Access is okay although road is rutted. Interior roads are gravel and level. Sites are gravel and level with grass between sites. Sites are long and wide. About 1/3 of sites are long term. About another 1/3 were occupied by workers on a pipeline. But most sites were neat. There is a long power line utility easement available to walk dogs. WiFi was good. Water pressure was good. This is a park behind a truckstop, and the trucks are a bit noisy, but not noticable in your RV. If the owner put up a sound barrier wall or even a fence between the truckstop and the sites, the noise would be much less intrusive. Very good location to visit historical sites. Don't mix this up with Nakatosh #2 which is east of the Interstate and near Sibley Lake. That lakeside park is really tiny with small sites jammed together. We would stay here again.

This campground is located on US59 South, a few miles south of town and on east side of highway. Access road is a narrow crowned dirt road. Interior roads are recycled asphalt which is pretty loose and lumpy. Pads are same material and very soft so you have to use pads or your jacks will sink. All other areas are barren soft sand. There is very little grass and, despite being surrounded by the owner's forested land, no shade at all. I noted that I did not know if this was pet friendly since, although they allow pets, there is nowhere to walk one. The park opened early March 2011 and has a very long way to go before it is a "resort". Basically it is a parking lot with hookups. Water pressure was good. Wi-Fi was good. Owner was on site and very helpful and friendly. This was previously rated as a 10. The rating must have been by a relative.

The 2E RV Resort is part of the 250 acre Twin Elm Guest (dude) Ranch located 2 miles West of Bandera. Two years ago the current owners bought a really beat up dude ranch, and started to clean and paint the cabins and put in new corrals. To expand the capacity they started to build a RV park. 50 sites are planned and 28 are done. 8 are occupied by permanent residents and ranch hands. Permanent sites are neat. Access to the park is good. Interior roads are asphalt and pads are cement and long, but very narrow. Interior roads are blocked by low hanging trees requiring you to back down the road to get out. Pamphlets say place has Wi-Fi, but there is none (but could access internet via Iphone). Pool was being resurfaced. You are told you can walk your dogs anywhere, but the ground is covered by cactus and sharp burrs which make walking dogs impossible. There are ranch dogs which run loose on the property. Owners do not pick up after their dogs and the place has plenty of horse and dog waste spread everywhere. Electric service is good. Water pressure drops when water is used in the pool area (to 4 psi). The bath house-laundry-social room was being framed but appears small. The park was very dry and dusty, and a camp worker-volunteer-resident started mowing, covering everything in thick dust and dirt and cutting off the top of the sewer connections. Rocks were hitting RVs. When we asked him to stop mowing by our RV, he became very angry and aggressive; and when the staff was told, nothing was done. Place caters to those groups in the ranch cabins and is focused on horse riding. No one is in charge of the campground. The ranch area is not paved, if it rains the campground will be covered in mud. Dumpster (1) was overflowing. The new owners have money, but apparently do not have a clue as to what people who RV desire. You can see Bandera in 2-3 hours; so you need to skip staying here and move on. We would not stay here again, even for free. We left early and did not stop to ask for a partial refund.

We stayed here over Spring Break. Although the park was full, the staff was excellent in making sure everything was organized and that the campground was spotless. (They fine you for not picking up your dog waste, which as dog owners we applaud.) There is construction on Route 290 but it does not have an effect on access. Roads and pads are rough and dusty gravel, but we understand the owners are considering paving. There is a new (small, which is strange for Texas) fenced dog run. Lots of places to walk dogs; although one permanent resident has taken to collecting lots and lots of stray cats that can pose a problem for dog walkers. There was entertainment on Saturday night at the new small stage behind the office. WiFi was good. Cable TV has been expanded and is good. This is primarily an adult oriented park as are the surrounding attractions (Luckenbach, Fredericksburg, Johnson Ranch, wine tours, etc.) We stayed here before, and will be back.

We have stayed here a number of times. Appears that since converting to a KOA two years ago, the owners have undertaken some improvements. Roads and pads are in good shape. Hookups are lit at night. While here the restrooms were partially closed since they are being rebuilt and enlarged. Owner says a dog run (fenced area) is coming soon. Park used to have an awful problem with burrs which would stick into dog's feet; but they either sprayed or the cold weather killed the burrs off. Staff is very friendly. Rate reflects KOA discount. This place would be a 10 if they would put in cable TV. There is road construction nearby on 183A, but it does not affect access to park.

This place is a gem. Only about 30 miles east of Dallas, access via I-20 exit 506 is easy. Roads to and in the park are wide and excellent. Pads are gravel but very level. Sites are very wide with a shade tree, table and landscaping. The store and the entire campground are spotless with nice landscaping and trimmed grass. Lots of places to walk your dog and there is a nice clean fenced dog run. Very good TV and Wi-Fi. Friendly staff. We would make it a point to stop here again. Great place - and we are picky.

This campground is 1 block off I-55, but set behind some businesses, so it is not as noisy as anticipated. But starting at 5 am you can hear trains running by. It is handy to I-20, I-55, and Natchez Trace. The entrance is hard to find (you have to drive past the front of a Mexican Restaurant). Interior roads are gravel and pads are cement and level. Good satellite, cable and antenna TV. Wi-Fi is available only in office. There are only about 10 or 12 sites available to overnight campers; the rest being not seasonal but permanent residents living in campers. Biggest problem is water: the faucet outlet at our site was so loose you could lift it out of the ground, and the surrounding area was wet. And, the faucet was 3 inches from the sewer inlet. Rather than get cholera, we chose to not hook up and use the limited water in our tank and skip a morning shower. The east end of the park had a strong sewer gas odor. Lots of places to walk dogs, but no one picks up the waste. We would stay here again if no place else was available.

This got a KOA President's Award in 05 and 06. We guess it has gone down hill since then. Location 1 mile off I-10 is convenient. Access is good. Sites are sand. Internal roads are crushed asphalt. There are a few seasonal sites that have become permanent. You cannot use your satellite and there is no cable TV. Wi-Fi is pretty good. Adjoining area to south is owned by campground and appears to be a cross between a logging operation and a dump. Dog waste is everywhere. Dog run is 8 x12 feet, fence is broken, and gate is missing. Playground fence is broken and on the ground. Dumpster was overflowing. This could be a nice KOA, but it is really a mess and in disrepair. Appears no one fixes anything. Staff was friendly. Since location is great we would stop in again but only for an overnight.

This is still a beautiful, well run park. Sites are all privately owned, and well maintained and landscaped. It is right on the bike path and just minutes from the beach. The rate includes a $4 recreation fee and $3 electric fee; and don't argue, everyone pays it, but the place is worth it. 15% discount for cash with FMCA membership. The staff is great; and let us tour the place and select a vacant site. Only improvement would be a dog run. We have stayed here before, and will again.

Other than a change from yellow to blue signs, this still looks and operates like a KOA. Campground is very clean. Staff is friendly and provides escort to your site. The location is great. It is only 2 minutes to I-95 and there is a truckstop at the exit. Despite its close location to I-95, it was quiet. Only complaints we had were that the sites are basically sand and the sand gets everywhere, and there are ants all over the sites. It would be great if they had a dog run. We will stay here again.

This campground is located 1.5 miles from the interstate, but you have to look for the sign at the entrance. It is a large, shaded campground. Roads are mostly paved, and sites are gravel and level. This is really an amusement park for kids, with a RV park incorporated; but in October the pool was closed, the crowds were gone, and the place was quite. The staff was helpful, and the RVs were placed with empty spaces between them. Lots of places to walk dogs, and lots of space, but no fenced dog run. We would stay here again.

This is now a KOA, although the I-95 signs have not changed. It is close to I95, but is still fairly quiet. The proximity to the interstate explains the price. Roads are gravel as are sites. Sites are shaded and level. We had no problem moving our 40' RV with toad into place. Staff was friendly. The dog run was being constructed as we arrived. Otherwise it is lots of gravel for your dogs, other than the tenting area. Truck stops are nearby for fuel. We would stay here again.

This rural KOA is on the north side of I88. Access is via a narrow rural but well paved road. The campground is is a horseshoe, with a steep hill on the north and a stream on the south. Sites and interior roads are gravel. Interior access is very good. All sites are level. Seasonal campers are mostly along the stream and are kept very neat. Lots of places to walk dogs. The staff was very helpful, insuring we got a site where we could get satellite coverage. We will certainly stay here again.

This large park is just off I89, about 20 minutes north of White River Junction. Access to the campground and sites is very good. Interior roads are gravel and well maintained. Sites are level. Wi-Fi is great. The name refers to the on site lake which has a beach and swimming. This was previously a 100 acre dairy farm, and is beautiful, with surrounding forested hills, mountains in the distance, and rolling meadows which look like golf course fairways. There are seasonal campers in certain areas, but every site is neat. The entire campground is very clean. Sites are quite far apart and there is lots of privacy if you want it. In many cases you cannot see any other campers. There are miles of paths for dog walking. Despite being near the interstate, it is very quiet. A farmers stand is across the street and a very good restaurant (3 Stallions Inn) in Randolph. It is near King Arthur outlet and Cabot farms. It is a jewel. It even smells good, like freshly cut grass and pine trees. We would spend the entire summer here.

This is a cross between a carnival, refugee camp, and a Grapes of Wrath hobo town. All of the RV sites are "seasonal" except for about 20. It appears many campers come and stay. With the downturn in the economy, and with this as a year round campground, quite a few families have moved in permanently. This campground is about 35 minutes West of Manchester, and down a remote country road, and then a dirt road that ends in a trash heap next to the office. Wi-fi is at the office and community center. There is an indoor and outdoor pool which looked okay. Roads are gravel and pads are gravel. Access to some sites is limited due to trees. Very noisy and smokey on the weekends with kids everywhere. We would never stay here again.

This state park is somewhat remote from the Interstate. If you have a big rig, use Exit 131B and call for instructions. You can make reservations at this state park. If you have a larger rig, let them know (We got our 40' MH into site 68.) Many of the sites are difficult to get into in this heavily forested park. Come with tanks empty and with plenty of fresh water. Pads are gravel. Roads are somewhat paved. There is a large lake with a wonderful walking path around it. This park is in a valley, and there is no telephone service. There is no television (not by antenna nor satellite).

This is an older KOA on the West side of Gettysburg. It is located on a narrow side road and the approach and the interior roads are very narrow. If coming from the PA pike from West, need to take PA 75 south since all other routes are basically impassable. The entire KOA is paved in black gravel. The only areas not graveled are the trees, rocks, and playground. The dog run is tiny and graveled. The dog walk is 75' long, very narrow, and along the edge of the road. Wi-Fi is good near the office. Cable is available ($). Sites are mostly fairly level although the campground is on a slant. A premium site gets you a picnic table and an old wooden swing - that's it. Staff was helpful. Basically, this is a campground that meets the minimums. The owner knows you probably won't be visiting Gettysburg again so improvements are at a minimum. Quite disappointed in this place; although we have been in 3 KOA's that were worse.

This campground is 6 miles S of Somerset on the PA pike and about 25 minutes from Falling Water and two other Frank Lloyd Wright homes. Also it is 25 minutes to the Flight 93 Memorial and the Memorial of the Johnstown flood. Access to the campground is very good, and the interior roads and pads are crushed and rolled gravel. This is a former dairy farm of 220 acres: you are surrounded by corn fields, hills dotted with cows and trees, and a pretty lake and forest. Lots of places to walk, hike and walk the dog. Can fish in the lake. Each site is really double wide, and has a minimum of 2500 sq feet. Drainage is great and sites were dry even after a 2" rain storm. It is spotless and the staff is friendly and attentive. We mentioned it did not have a dog run, and the next day, it had a large grassy fenced run installed. We will come back here again. It was beautiful and relaxing. The seasonal sites are separate and are manicured! What a treat. One of the nicest places we have every camped.

This KOA is about 1/2 mile North of I-64 near KY-WV border. It is adjacent to the NE KY Veterans cemetery. Appears to be new campground. Gravel roads and sites are level, but the gravel needs to be rolled. Little grass and no trees. No lighting. Park appears to be clean. Staff was friendly. This campground is nothing special, but it provides the minimums you need if you are passing through. Maybe as it matures it will get better.

Big rig friendly RV park with easy access to I-65 and close to Mammoth Cave National Park and Bowling Green KY. Gravel roads with level gravel pads. Nice landscaping. Some small trees. Plenty of room between sites. Exercise room and arcade. Kid related entertainment nearby, although saw no small kids in the park. This is a very very clean adult oriented park with a friendly staff. Very good, grassy, large and fenced dog run. We would stay here again for sure.

Located on Highway 290, this park is 5 miles east of Fredericksburg and 12 miles west of the LBJ Ranch. Roads and pads are gravel. Access is good and sites are long enough for a 43' motorhome with toad. It has a huge dog walk area. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The area is very quiet with lots of shade (although you can ask for a site for antenna and satellite use). Only downfall was the cable TV hookup did not work well. Otherwise this was a great place to stay.

This very large park is about 25 miles south of Houston, and 15 minutes from Johnson Space Center. It appears that an older park was totally rebuilt, and incorporated two other and totally rebuilt parks. The streets are as wide as a highway. Sites are a bit narrow, but are long. There is an adults only section. There are street lights to provide night time lighting. There are 3 pools. Fishing in the lake (which is really a salt pond). The place is very clean and the staff is very helpful. The only downside is lack of shade, and the dog walking area has a lot of burrs growing in it (although it appears they are being treated). All in all a great place to stay.

This campground is about a mile north of I-10 and access is good. Staff was friendly. Internal roads are sand and in some cases were washed out and soft. Sites are short and unlevel. Most sites to the north and east are primitive at best. The "turtle pond" is a swamp. Most sites along the lake were filled with tents. The location makes this campground acceptable. If you have kids who like to lake fish, this would be a good choice.

This is a gated RV resort 17 miles north of Kennedy Space Center and with easy access from I-95. It is very quiet and well maintained. Staff is attentive. Sites are all back in and more or less segregated (motorhomes vs TT and 5th wheels). Pet friendly but without a dog run, although the area west of the entry is a big open field. There are quite a few seasonal sites and most residents are older. We saw very few kids. We would stay here again.

Not the nicest campground in the world, but the owners are delightful. Further, the location is great. It is 1000 ft to I-20 and across from a Pilot. Despite that the place is quiet. Roads and sites are gravel with cement patio pads. Previous visits showed quite a few full time residents; but this visit showed few. Note that the sites 26-30 and 61 are best suited for longer rigs. Military discount offered.

This is a gated class A resort with size and vehicle age limitations. The resort is about 2/3 complete. In the completed portion some features have yet to be completed (such as the putting green). The sites are spacious, concrete, and level. Access to the sites is great due to wide internal roads. The landscaping is somewhat sparse; probably due to the newness of the resort. The clubhouse is great and complete with business center, bar area, spa-gym, sauna, and a heated pool. The staff is very friendly and helpful. They exhibit pride in the resort. Wi-Fi access is very good. The resort is pet friendly and has a clean, large, fenced dog play area. We would stay here again without hesitation.

Very kid friendly, this campground offers ice cream nights, nightly (sort of) drive in movies, etc. Beautiful campground. We would stay here again.

Access into the campground is tight. Roads are dirt and so are sites. Sites on south side are not level. Campground is mostly blowing dirt with a few sparce trees. Dog walk is an overgrown path through burrs and cactus. Campground offers a bar-b-que restaurant with deliver service to site. The food was not very good, not much of it, and very expensive. I would not stay here again.
