Was welcomed by the friendly owner. Campground is very well maintained, with good level sites and easy access. Used trailer facilities so cannot comment on showers and washrooms. However based on condition of park, I expect that they are very good. Easy access from interstate, but not too noisy considering that interstate is visible from park.

Park is 2 miles from I-69, and convenient for "Winter Texans" heading home to Michigan and Ontario in the spring, as the transient sites are available with full hook ups. Staff is friendly, and the sites are nice and long. Price paid is the off season rate.

Well maintained park, suitable for staying while visiting the Georgetown area. Friendly staff.

Park is OK for overnight stay, but would not be suitable for expended stays unless you only want a base camp. Most of the "campers" appear to be workers, with several FEMA trailers being used. Pads are concrete and fairly level, so easy to set up. Interstate is close by, as is a railroad, so background noise is high.

One of the best KOA's we've seen. Very friendly and helpful owners, and very efficient staff. Park is clean and tidy, with good sized sites and enough trees for shade if required. Cable TV was good and Wi-Fi available at sites although it was slow sometimes. The owners are RV'ers themselves and this shows in how they run the park.

This is an average park. Some treed sites, some in the open. Site landscaping could be improved. WQe found the nightly fee excessive considering the lack of sewer hookups and general park appearance. Staff were friendly and helpful though.

I rated this park high because although the facilities are fairly basic, the owners make you feel so welcome. They were very friendly and forthcoming with all kinds of information. We had a lot of fun in our conversations with them. The park is also close to Bonavista, and to Trinity.

This park is close to the beach and we were able to see the Capelin roll in. It is convenient for sightseeing around Twillingate (great icebergs!) The owners were very friendly and especially helpful when our RV needed an emergency repair. They made several phone calls on our behalf and followed up to ensure that we got what we needed.

This is a large park with plenty of room for big rigs. Sites are plan gravel for the most part. Park is close to Rocky Harbor for shopping, and this town is fairly well centered in the National Park. I would stay here again.

Rated this park as a 8 because it was very convenient to the National Historic Site at L'Anse aux Meadows. Negatives are that we couldn't drink the water while we were there, and they ran out of 30 amp sites. Recommend the "Northern Delight" restaurant just down the road for excellent food at reasonable price.

I rated this park as only average because of the large number of seasonal residents who are not terribly friendly, the high fee that we paid for a water and electric site, the not very welcoming staff, and the fact that the dump station had no flushing hose. I shall not return there.

Probably the best park on the island when you consider the nice lots, full service and friendliness of the owners. We had to stay longer here due to ferry problems, and the owners were very accommodating.

No one at office when checking in, he arrived much later. Office area is an eyesore - with auto parts and parts of wrecked vehicles lying around. Found only 3 30 A sites for our group of four. Rest of sites are 15 amp. Many sites had no power due to blown or missing fuses at site. The electrical service is archaic - many sites have home made boxes and still use the screw in type fuses - not breakers. One of the main service poles will likely fall over in next storm, and cable is tangled within a couple of trees. Sites are all grass and reasonably level. Water is cloudy and slightly brown. Washrooms and shower are not well maintained. Stayed the night, because we were there, and it was an experience! However, I do not recommend the place to anyone.

Low rating due to campgrounds proximity to interstate It is very close. Consequently, a peaceful sleep is very difficult to obtain. Sites are also narrow, rough and uneven, and not well cared for. Office staff, however, was very welcoming.

Another poor value KOA campground, hence the low overall score. It has good facilities for families, but campground roads are poor and sites are uneven. WiFi internet worked well.

Park staff are very welcoming, but $40 for a poor water and electric site is extremely poor value. Site was narrow gravel, with muddy/grassy ares beyond. WiFi internet was good. The park has some animals to amuse children, but one of the donkeys occasionally makes an awful racket which woke my wife twice in the night. Free light breakfast was included also.

Low mark because this this campground has few facilities, no washrooms, no laundry, no internet, no cable, and not cheap. They also charge extra if you want to use AC or electric heat. The park has mostly seasonal residents. The KOA just down the road is a little nicer.On the plus side, the host was friendly and gave some good sightseeing advice, and there is access to trails from the park.

This is basically a parking lot behind a plaza on a main city thoroughfare. It is fairly quiet however. The low mark is based on the general appearance of the park, wireless internet unreliability, and the poor arrangement of hookups. On some sites the 50A box is on the curbside of the trailer, and on many sites the sewer port is quite high off the ground resulting a full hose after dumping. There is no host or overnight security person and you have to call a number for after hours help. A plus is easy access to city transportation, and major store proximity.

Park easy to get to from interstate. Owner was very welcoming, and we got two nights for price of one. WiFi worked very well from trailer. Lots of citrus trees, with lots of fruit available for guests. Grapefruit was delicious. Black Canyon City is really a village, but has decent grocery store, good pizza joint next to campground, and a really excellent Amish restaurant "downtown". I would stay here again.

I gave this park a rating of only 5 because of its very few transient sites. The park is almost entirely filled with seasonal campers. When we stayed there only appeared to be 2 available full service sites, and a half dozen water electric sites. The campground entrance area is also somewhat untidy. The campground is also fully wooded, so not much sun gets through, and getting a satellite signal is next to impossible.

Although this park is well equipped with activities and activities, it is not necessarily a good choice for transient campers. The park is mainly used by seasonal campers. The roads are narrow and windy, and we damaged our awning against a badly pruned tree branch as we tried to find our site. Driving around the park with a 32' trailer was very difficult.The front desk staff were inexperienced and allocated us a site too small for our rig initially, and then gave us another site which was occupied.
