The park is located within 100 feet of the main highway and road noise along that side of the park it is very loud 24 hours a day. It didn't help that road work was going on every night we were there. Management told us that there will be a sound barrier built alongside the road, but no one seems to know when. Unfortunately, most of the short term sites are located near the road. That being said, however, the park is very nice and well maintained, and is a combination of park model homes and short term RV sites. The people there for the winter have been going there since they were 55, and one couple we met had been there every year for the last 35 years. The sites are paved and long drive throughs, but narrow. No problems even for the longest rigs and I was able to open my slides and awning without any problems. Electric is metered and paid separately at 16 cents per kilowatt hour. Water pressure is good and cell phone reception is strong. WiFi is available at $30 per month, but is very slow at busy times of the day. Verizon MiFi received a very strong 4G signal all times of the day. The park is fenced and gated and very secure. The pool and spa are heated and very clean. The residents have a very busy activity schedule, and we were invited to participate in everything. The rate shown was a special rate for this winter of $250 plus electric for the month we were there. I would stay here again if I was able to get a site away from the highway.

Stopped here for the night while passing through. Campground is 1.5 miles off the interstate and is very quiet (except for one big mouth donkey who yelled for about an hour...LOL). Road and sites are dirt and are fairly level. Sites are pull through and long enough for a big rig with a toad. Electric was good and water pressure was adequate. Rate shown is Passport America, and they now take credit cards for payment. I will stop here again the next time I'm in the area.

I stopped here for an overnight rest on my way farther south in Texas. I was escorted to a long pull-through site not far from the office. The site was concrete and level and the utilities were well maintained and reliable. The campground is right off I-10, but the road noise is minimal. I will definitely stop here on my way home in a few months.

Very nice, well maintained older RV Park. It is a combination of long term and short term RV sites and rental cabins. RV sites are all back in, but plenty of room to maneuver unless you choose a site with a covered metal awning. Even then, they are doable even with a Class A or large 5th wheel. I choose a site under the trees and had good shade most of the day. Water pressure is good, and electric was reliable. The utility poles are toward the front of the sites. OK for me for the water and sewer, but I needed to use my 30A extension cord to reach the electric. The manager told me that there were some long term residents, but you can't pick them out by looking at their sites. He won't let them make it look like a trailer park. The park is quiet and out in the country. The town of Springtown is about 5 miles away and has a Brookshier supermarket, several good restaurants and cafes, and diesel and gas are available. Nine miles in the opposite direction is the larger town of Azle, with a Wal-Mart and more shopping and restaurants. I was visiting friends in the area and this was a great location for me. Satellite worked well and over the air channels were clear with a strong signal. The park has Wi-Fi, but I didn't use it. Verizon Mi-Fi worked well all day with no signal loss and cell phone signal was strong. The rate shown is based on the weekly rate of $135. The daily rate is $30. I would recommend this campground to anyone visiting the area or just passing through.

According to the Helen, Georgia Convention and Visitors Bureau, this campground is no longer in operation.

Yes, the office is a mess...but we don't stay in the office. The campground itself is excellent. Long, level, pull through sites, good water pressure, reliable electrical service...what more do you need? Verizon cell phone and broadband AirCard service was very strong. The owner was very helpful and directed me to the site. He even helped me hook up! There was a flea market going on at the CG that day and I found some really good stuff! The rate shown is for Passport America and even though the directory says that it is not valid on weekends, the owner gave me the site on a Saturday at the PA rate with no reservation. This is a great place to overnight right off of I-90. I would definitely stay here again.

Great place to overnight right off of I-90. Easy off and on, level sites with FHU. Seems very well maintained and owner was very helpful and friendly. Even his dog came out to say Hello...LOL. Rate shown is Passport America rate. I would definitely use this CG again.

Great central base for visiting all the Black Hills attractions. Campground is older, but very well maintained, with large, level grass and gravel sites. Water pressure good and electrical service dependable. Verizon Air Card works extremely well from this location. Campground is very quiet, which is surprising since it is located only a few hundred yards from I-90. Because of construction the Campground is a little confusing to find. Use Exit 52 from I-90 (turn left if going East, right if going West); make a left at Norman Road (service road) and follow it a couple of miles to the campground entrance on the left. There are some small signs showing the way, but they are easy to miss. I would definitely stay here again when visiting the area. Rate shown is the Passport America rate.

Nice place to stay between Cody and Yellowstone. Sites are pull through and easy access. Some side to side leveling is required and some of the sites get pretty muddy when it rains. No shade, but a nice breeze comes through the valley. Didn't have to run the A/C at all during the day and nights were cool and comfortable. The heated pool was nice and the indoor hot tub was very welcome after a day hiking around Yellowstone. The saloon and restaurant were very good and as a guest you get tickets for a discount on the full breakfast buffet. Very scenic view of the mountains outside your windows. Rate shown is Passport America rate with tax. I would definitely stay here again when I'm in the area.

I stayed here for 2 weeks while visiting relatives. This is an older campground but it is very well maintained. It is a combination of "transient" campers and permanent residents, but all of the sites seem to be neat and well maintained. Very friendly residents and staff goes out of their way to make you feel welcome and that you have an enjoyable stay. Excellent Direct TV satellite and Verizon wireless internet access. Even though the campground is on a main highway with an active railroad running along side of it, it was very quiet here with only an occasional loud train whistle. And the rabbits are still running around the campground at night. They're a riot!

This is a great campground and an excellent central location to tour the many sites and attractions in Northern Arizona. Many delays are dragging the construction of the new building and swimming pool out past the dates predicted on the KOA website, and the staff here are not sure when everything will be completed and open. Don't let that stop you from coming here though! The sites are clean, spacious, and level and everything in the campground that is not under construction is well maintained. The staff is friendly and helpful and very familiar with things to do and see in Northern Arizona. The Grand Canyon is only 45 minutes from here and some of the other attractions within easy driving distance are the Meteor Crater, Walnut Canyon, Sedona, Sunset Crater, and a bunch of neat "ghost" towns. I've been here for a week with my grandkids and they're having a ball. Even without the swimming pool and usual KOA amenities. Lots of other families and kids here in a quiet, safe location.

I spent the month of August at this campground and really enjoyed staying here. The monthly rate was $780 for a full hook up site, considerably less than the $40 daily rate. I tend to stay longer in one area now to offset the high cost of fuel. The site was level, but small and the RV sites are close together (typical of a KOA). The utilities are shared, so I had to bring my electric and water lines under my camper to the hookup. The campground itself is very clean and well maintained, with a lot of activities for kids and families. I would also have to disagree with some of the previous reviewers about the staff. Everyone was very pleasant and helpful and went out of their way to ensure that I was comfortable and satisfied with my stay. The rules of the campground are reasonable and are obviously enforced to make sure that everyone there enjoys their stay. The only incident I observed where the staff were "less" than friendly involved children running wild and loud and abusive language after the start of "quiet hours". I would not hesitate to recommend this campground either as a destination or as an overnight stop.

This is a bare bones, no frills campground but it is well maintained and convenient if you are in the area. At the present time there are a lot of pipeline workers staying here while construction is going on in the area. Not a lot of trees for shade but most of the individual sites are covered with metal "carport" type covers, to include the concrete patios. No problem for any size RV fitting under the awnings and there is still plenty of room for slide outs. The office is in the first camper on the left when you enter the campground and does not accept credit cards...cash or check only. I will stay here again when I'm visiting friends in the area.

I stopped here to overnight on the way to Texas and was pleasantly surprised. From the cordial welcome I received, to the escort to the site, the staff was very pleasant and helpful. Yes, there are a lot of "permanent" residents. Yes, it is very close to I-20 but no, the campground was not noisy. The site I had was a back in and I didn't disconnect my truck, so my camper didn't sit level. Since I was only staying for the night, it didn't bother me. I use a Verizon AirCard for internet access, but Verizon is not accessible from this location. I connected to Global and a warning came up from Verizon that I might incur high roaming charges, depending on my plan. I have had the unlimited access Verizon plan for years and I'm not charged for roaming or limited to the 5GB like folks signing up now are, but if you are you might want to think twice about connecting to this service. As one of the other reviewers stated you would be better off going to the Wendy's across the street where it's free WiFi.
