The good: easy walk to a nice lake through a wooded downhill slope. Not very crowded during the week (stayed on a Wednesday). Basic, relatively good playground equipment for the kids, but they'll run right by it on the way to the water. Quiet, dark and mellow area, about 10 minutes off the interstate. Lots of old big shade trees, half the campground is in the cool shade. The bad: most spots aren't level in varying degrees, and electrical hookups aren't well located, so have a long cord. Not every spot has a fire pit, if that matters. All in all, an excellent overnight or destination campground, would not hesitate to stay here again.
The good: nice, dark, quiet campground if you don't mind a bit of road noise. The bad: Not worth what they charge. Pool was slightly dirty, hot tub was empty with parts on order. Neighbor complained about low voltage from 30A connection, but I did not verify with a multimeter. Crowded campground. Bathrooms were clean, but had an odor, and humid like a rainforest. All in all, kind of disappointed. Stayed here last year, seems to have slipped a little. Going to try a different place next time.
The good: Great spot for an early overnight! The grass is the best I've ever seen for a public owned area, great playground equipment, large public pool 200 yards away (closes when college kids go back to school in early august so we didn't get to use it). Stayed on a Tuesday night, and it was just our party and one transient construction worker who retired early and never made a peep. Some medium sized shade trees that show great promise and shaded all the spots from late afternoon until dusk. Pay $10 on the honor system, and know it will go to maintaining the park, which is probably the best bargain I have ever seen for a campsite. Locals are friendly and helpful- typical small town good folks. The bad: concrete pads are short. If you have a big pusher, you're gonna stick out. My little 34 foot truck/trailer combo barely fit with my rear end hanging out over grass (but there's plenty of room, so don't feel bad sticking out into the parking lot). Half the pads are very level concrete, the rest are very level gravel. Back in only, no big deal if you know what you are doing. 2 acres of parking lot to turn around in. Concert block bathrooms, clean, no bad smells, but no showers. Now, about the trains. Lots of trains. About every 20 or 30 minutes or so, and about 500 yards to the southwest. If you don't mind trains, you'll get used to it fast. If you mind trains, DONT STAY HERE. I got used to it very quickly, and it's a minor inconvenience. A small general aviation airport to the south, but only heard one small general aviation plane take off all night, no problem. One small grocery store in town, and restaurants are limited, so plan accordingly. All in all, the best camping spot I've found on this trip. Would not hesitate to stay again. Best site for the money I've probably ever found.
Playground equipment, pool, video game room. Outward appearance is kid friendly. Bathrooms are dated but clean with no excessive smell. Expensive for what you get. Wi-Fi is present, but very slow. Campground has a dated, dilapidated feel about the place. The grass that was sparse in previous reviews is now nonexistent or dead in the front half of the park (due to the ongoing drought, I assume). The pool is mostly clean, but in desperate need of repair to the surrounding concrete. There's a video game room, but the managers said that they needed to turn them on before we could use them, and didn't really seem interested in catering to us customers. The roads and pads are all sand and gravel, and feel like parking on the shoulder of the highway. Apparently this is the better of the campgrounds in Dodge, and that's a shame. The kids enjoyed themselves, but we probably won't stay here again.
The good: Pay what you think it's worth or what you can afford. Pay with an envelope at a shack on the uphill side of the campground. Next to a small airport but never heard a plane. Just off the highway but large trees block out a lot of the noise & view of the road. Some basic but well cared for playground equipment nearby for the kids, and 300 yards away from a National Guard Armory, so the kids can climb on the two deactivated tanks displayed out front. Good access to town for supplies or dinner. The bad: Not all spots have water and no sewer (drop station on the way out though). Bathrooms are small, a little smelly but not too bad without a door on the stall. No showers. My little 34' rig fit fine in my spot, but the bigger guys may have a tight fit in 2 or 3 spots. A good spot for an overnight, and would stay here again. Nice place.
The good: laid back place, kid friendly, playground equipment (some new, some old, all in good shape), sand on the volleyball court, lots of fire rings, friendly staff & campers, no excessive noise from other campers (stayed on a Friday night). The bad: dirt road for the last half mile (rig might get dusty or muddy), men's bathroom/shower was a little dark/dated/rough but no bad smells or mess, and wasn't nervous about using them, the couple of the roads are a little tight in some turns, but the big rigs can make it through no problem with a little forethought. Not quite enough picnic tables, and a few more shade trees are needed. Would definitely recommend this place if you have kids for 5 to 15, would not hesitate to stay here again.
