What a great park, location, and good deal! Only $25 for a full service hookup in a beautiful city park, close enough to the town to bike into it. The city pool complex is right there to use, and the park managers are friendly and efficient. Mason City has miles of beautiful bike trails that go into town or along the river and creek. The WiFi was strong in our location and we had some shade. Even bought quality t-shirts for only $9. We will definitely stop back here when in the area!

This is a good spot for a one night stop, but we wouldn't stay here for any length of time. We didn't have a car, the roads are not bike friendly, so there's nowhere to go. But the sites were fairly level, services were good, and the hosts were friendly. We would come here again if in the area.

Be careful what you ask for, might be the case here. I did ask for a shaded site, as it was summer. We were given a site along the creek at the west side of the campground where the sites are lined up with no space in between and no grass, just stones and dirt. Luckily no one was put near us for the three days we were here, perhaps on purpose, but we would have left if it had happened. Hannibal is a cute town to walk around, trolley service comes to the campground, and the caves are right there to explore. We didn't use the restrooms or showers, but I walked in and they were immaculate. Internet was slow but acceptable for email. Utilities all worked fine. The people who work here are not unfriendly, but certainly not outgoing or helpful at all. It is a good campsite for visiting Hannibal, but we won't be back.

This is a hard park to rate. We made reservations and they checked us in quickly. We got a site in among tall trees so it was nice and shady, but our satellite TV did not work. Adding cable TV would be a huge plus. The electric, water, and sewer hookups all worked as they should. Our site was level and there is a concrete pad and picnic table to use. We were here mid week so it wasn't at all crowded. However, if the park was full we would have hated it as the sites are very close together. The layout of some sites has you back to back or front to front with your neighbor (probably so they only had to bring one line of utilities in for each pair of sites) so there would be no privacy. If you are a family with kids, they have a pool and at least five bounce house/playground/water slide type entertainments. We did go on the 4.4 mile hike around the lake, and it was very nice. You can hear the road noise constantly, but it wasn't so loud that it kept us awake at night. The WiFi worked, but it was very slow. The price is very reasonable though. For us, we would only use it as an overnight stop, not a destination.

I was amazed that this campground was not in your database. It is a National Recreational Area, part of the Land Between the Lakes. The park is beautiful, the sites are mostly large and level with stones, and much of the campground is in the trees. We were here over the Fourth of July weekend so it was busy, but the overall attitude of the employees and the guests is courtesy first. The kids are having fun without being noisy or annoying in any way. There are sites right on Kentucky Lake, a beach area, and a boat ramp so that campers can bring their boats up behind their sites. We would definitely come back!

We only stayed here one night on our drive north, and we were met at the office by a friendly person and free popcorn! The park is close to I-75 but not so close that you hear the traffic. We had a very level long drive-through site. If we were staying for any length of time we would have requested one of their sites in the trees. The only strange thing was that their pool is locked; they want all swimmers to register before using the pool. We would definitely return.

Price reflects Good Sam discount. We were here during some really hot weather during their off season. The big trees provided lots of welcome shade. Our site was a drive through, nice and level, with full services. The park was very quiet, and the owners and employees are very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed riding and hiking some of the nearby trails and going into the quaint little town. Lots of interesting history here, too. The only real negative thing to add is the sulfur smelling water (which they can't change, I realize) and the rather low water pressure. We would definitely come back.

We were at the Savannas in October; our son and family were there during the Christmas holidays, and we were just there again in June. Beautiful place! I guess I would personally rate it a 10 if it had lots of shade or a pool or Wi-Fi or paved sites. It is truly a nature park, with a stream, the grassy savanna, natural Florida trees, and of course the entertaining sandhill cranes. The people who work here are very friendly and helpful. I could go on and on. We will definitely be back.

Rate reflects the weekly rate. This park is perfectly manicured; I don't know what the previous reviewer was speaking of. This is a little "Disney-like", it's so perfect. That being said, there are lots of rules to obey, so if that is a problem, don't come here. We were here in June, so the park was very quiet; in the winter it must have a different feel. The bathrooms, showers, laundry and pool area are fastidiously clean. Sites are concrete pads with picnic tables, a little small as they would rather you keep your table on the pad. The spacing between sites was not an issue for us as the park was pretty empty, but again, in season they might be a little too close. We had no vehicle with us, could bike to the Home Depot, but the roads are not bike friendly (I-95, the Turnpike and Okeechobee Road). We would come here again for a short stay.

This is a relatively new park; the owner is very helpful and friendly. Wifi worked well; they are currently working on installing cable tv to all of the sites. Laundry room is very clean and reasonably priced. The creek runs right next to the campground, they have canoes and kayaks available, and it is the most beautiful creek and swamp to go through! The downside: some of the sites and roads are a little tight. We have a long bed truck and a 35' trailer and we had to be very careful. We would go back again.

Price reflects cost of a waterfront site; otherwise it would have been $49. We stayed here for a week. This is a very nice park, well run, very neatly kept, friendly staff and residents. Hilton Head is of course a great place to visit. Virtually all of the sites looked nice and well spaced. All are paved, the Wi-Fi worked very well, as did the cable TV. The laundry facilities are clean and reasonably priced. We would definitely stay here again.

Price reflects a Good Sam discount. We stopped here for two days on our way south. Very nice people in the office. This campground is great for a quick stop as it is close to the highway, the roads are flat and easy to get around and most of the sites are pull-throughs. The manager leads you to your site. The laundry room is clean and reasonably priced. Sites are flat with some shade trees. We probably wouldn't stay for a long period, but would come here again for a quick stop.

This is truly a unique place to stay. It is way off the beaten path, so plan on spending at least several days here. The owners welcome you to their home and treat you like you are their guest. Internet signal is very strong, laundry is complimentary, breakfast is awesome and so are the views! They have very few sites but all are full hookup with concrete pads. Franklin is a good sized town that is about ten minutes away, and there are forests and hiking trails that the owners will guide you to. We will definitely be back.

The Internet access was excellent in the back of the park, but in our opinion the nicer sites are more in the middle, with more shade, grass and privacy. We were assured that those sites should have good Wi-Fi strength, also. Cable TV was a plus. The laundry room is very clean and reasonably priced. The dog park was a big hit with our cat! The owners are very amenable and friendly. The park backs up to the Blue Ridge Parkway with access to hiking trails, etc. We will be back!

This park is a definite ten! The owners are hard working, gracious and keep their park in mint condition. The sites are very nicely spaced, some are shaded, the views are magnificent, and many of the sites are drive-throughs. The price is a little higher than most, but it is well worth it. Our only very minor complaint would be that the Wi-Fi signal was weak and slow at our site, but our Verizon gave us our internet access. The town of Luray is close by; so are major interstate roads for access. We will definitely be back.

We only stayed at this park for two nights; we'll be back when the weather is warmer! It is a very pretty park, although it is remote. Our biggest complaint is that they charge extra for certain things that we would rather have included in the base price. The WiFi worked well, and the owners and other campers were friendly and helpful. Not all of the sites would accommodate our 35' trailer, but they have sites on the water or in the woods that would work.

We were here for two weeks; the price reflects that. This is a nice park, and seems to be the best one close to Rochester, where we have family. Cable TV hookups are only at some of the sites; they are planning to put it throughout the park. There is a Camping World close by. There are quite a few seasonals and the park was full on weekends with large groups. The WiFi worked well at one site, but not so great at another after we moved. However we did have Verizon access for internet. Some of the sites are too close together for us. The price is right: great value! We will be back.

This is a beautiful campground, with lots of wooded areas and large, level, very well spaced sites. We were here for a week. Only some of the sites offer WiFi (at $2 per day) and one of their repeaters was down when we were here. We were very lucky to pick up a neighbor's WiFi; otherwise we would have been unhappy this week. The Verizon signal was non-existent. Only some of the sites have cable TV, and we found it to be the best quality and selection that we have experienced in the last 4 months of camping. The laundry room is very nice; however only 4 of their 7 machines were working, and the change machine was not. I tried contacting the office to get change but in their off season (September) they don't have coverage in the office and didn't answer their 2 phone numbers, so I wasn't able to finish my laundry. The other campers, both seasonal and overnight, all seemed very friendly. We would come back only if we could be assured of getting WiFi.

We stayed here for a week. The property this park has is very very nice, but it is in need of maintenance, possibly due to financial issues of the county? The staff of four people in the front office that greeted us on arrival, were more interested in their conversation than servicing us. The outlet at our electric hookup was upside down, so we couldn't use our surge protector. The trash dumpster was convenient but very messy, again, the staff needs to clean up after it, also get a replacement dumpster that isn't falling apart. The location to the train station for getting into NYC is very good, about a mile away. The sites are well spaced. There are great hiking trails and bike trails in the area.

The people at the front desk are friendly and nice, the location of the park is very good, especially with the Cape Cod Rail Trail (for bikes) located right at the back of the park. The sites were level, but our site wasn't very shady, and it is all sand, so it's messy. The park seems too focused on making extra money; i.e. to do a load of wash is $3, the most expensive we've seen by far. You have to give them a $20 deposit for a front gate security card. Our daughter came to visit for two days and we had to pay $10 per day for her plus $5 per day for her car! Their Wi-Fi was unreliable (and we were close to the front) and they had no pool. We would not come here again.

We were here for a week; price reflects that. The campground seems to be well run, people at the front desk are nice. We were here to visit our daughter in Boston. Laundry room was very nice. The sites were in the trees, which we liked. It was full and fairly crowded, but still okay. A little annoying that we had to pay for our daughter and her boyfriend to come for dinner one night. Wi-fi was good.

This is a very neat, well run park. Paved sites everywhere. But for $60/night it would be nice to have cable and sewer, not have to choose between the two. The sites are really too close together for us. Laundry was very nice, but no pool.

We were here for a week and it was great. We will definitely be back. We had site #4, which is one of several that have little roofs built over the picnic tables. The sites are so well spaced, and extra vegetation makes for lots of privacy. The hosts are very friendly, with advice on what's going on in the surrounding area.

We camped here for four nights. The owners and many of the other campers were extremely friendly. Bathrooms, showers and laundry are very clean. The campsites are right on the water with great views, if only you could see them past the other campers' rigs. The sites are very close together, not big enough for an RV with slides. We had to pull in our awning so as not to hit the slide of the motorhome next to us. No sewer hookups, but a honeywagon service is available. Internet was good, no cable at all sites. We would never stay here for more than a couple of days.

Nightly rate includes tax. We stayed here for 3 days. This is a beautiful property and the owners are working hard on it; however, it still needs improvement. The office has free Wi-Fi, but it requires that you to sit outside their office to use it. We are full-timers, so the internet is important to us. The young lady who checked us in was not knowledgeable or forthcoming about different sites. We had no choice in the matter. A man had us follow him to our site (#1) and got us in there easily. But it was next to the bar area, which at least wasn't open while we were there. Lots of noise from the ferry at this site. We had no one in the site next to us, thank goodness, because it would have been ridiculously close. Taking the ferry back and forth was no big deal. Close enough to tour Saint John and St. Andrews.

We stayed here for a week. Rate includes taxes and is for 6 nights/get one free deal. We were given site #44 in the older section of the park, which we thought was good in that we had no neighbors on one side and had a view of the woods and lake (through the trees). Although we had a good site, we thought most of the other sites were too close together. The sewer hookups were not capped and gave off odors when neighbors were dumping. Internet was iffy, requiring us to go outside for a good signal. Lots of flies around due to a lack of cleanliness by the trash cans. The park in general did not seem to be well maintained. The hiking trail around the lake was overgrown and fell off to one side, not a fun walk at all. It was convenient to see Hopewell Rocks and Fundy National Park. We would recommend this place for only a couple of days stay.

Price quoted includes KOA discounts and taxes. We stayed here for a week. The hosts lead all campers to their sites upon arrival. Since we were staying a week, we were given a site with a tree, much appreciated. We were fairly close to the office and had a strong internet signal. There is a nice view of the Bras d'or Lakes and Seal Island, very pretty. Convenient to Cabot Trail and Baddeck. This park seems to thrive on campers coming and going to the Newfoundland Ferry in New Sydney, so the turnover at the park is constant. They have a little beach on the water for swimming. We would come here again.

This is a beautiful place to stay; we were here for a week. The owners are especially gracious, and actually seem to care if you are enjoying your stay. The grounds are well landscaped and immaculate. The location is central on the island for sightseeing. Wi-Fi is adequate, laundry room is spotless, most sites are well spaced, very shaded and private.

We camped here for one week in site #104. It was NOT the best site in terms of privacy or shade. If we came here again, we would try to pick a better site; however, it is difficult to have a conversation with the staff as they do not speak English. There are more sites with sewer hookup than are indicated on the campsite map. Some of the sewer sites are beautiful, offering water views, treed areas and privacy. The park is nicely landscaped, has a big pool and water access. The laundry is very clean and economical. The staff is very responsive; they replaced a faulty electric breaker right away. The Wi-Fi is adequate, but not a very fast or strong signal. There is a nearby regional park with hiking trails and biking. The town of Amqui is nearby and has a good grocery store. We would come here again, but only if we could pick a good site.

We were here for a week, stretching across two, 3 day holiday weekends. We were the only English speaking people in the whole park. Our site was partially shaded and the spacing was adequate around our site. Even though the park was full on the weekends, it was not overly noisy. The hostess at the front desk did speak English, and was very helpful with suggestions on visiting the city of Quebec about 50 minutes away (take the ferry across at Levis). The lake wasn't too appealing, and we were told not to use our kayaks so as not to spread algae from lake to lake. WiFi was available for a price ($15 for 2 weeks) and the signal strength was adequate, but only for one computer at a time. There was no cable TV, and our antenna only picked up one French-speaking channel. The pool is heated and looked good; unfortunately the weather was rainy and cold when we were here. The laundry room looks brand new and is immaculate. If we were to revisit this area, we would probably try another campground.

Rate posted was based on one night free with 6 nights paid. Our site (#82) was in the back by the Grass River, very nice with a view, lots of trees, nicely spaced sites. We would not have liked the sites out in front of the park. Our site was fairly level, tv cable signal good, electric power good. The WiFi only works at the office area; it would be nice if they had a resident's lounge in which to sit. The laundry was very nice and clean. Our Verizon signal was so-so, and our hotspot seemed to work best in the morning! Overall a nice park; we would come here again.

We camped here for almost two weeks when it rained almost every day. Many of the sites were very wet, and not level. The park is close to Lake Ontario, so we had virtually no phone service (AT&T is supposedly better here) and of course there is no Wi-Fi. We were parked in their over flow site where there were no fire pits. And of course, there is no sewer hookup available so we used our tote to dump. No laundry services. The park itself is beautiful, with lots of hiking trails, and the staff is very helpful. This is a great local weekend spot. We were there only because we have family in the area, so we will be back.

This is a lovely park for total relaxing! Ricketts Glen State Park is nearby for hiking or swimming. The sites are very well spaced with nice views. Lots of open mowed spaces as well as woodsy areas. People here are very friendly and accommodating. Bathrooms, showers and laundry are kept spotless by the owners. The only negative is the iffy Wi-Fi service, which is important given the lack of cell phone service. We would definitely come here again. Price reflects discount for Passport America.

This is a very well maintained park. Lots of trees and open green space. It is truly a family place; even though we were here over the Memorial Day weekend, no one was out of control. Our site was level. Internet signal was great until all the weekend people filled up the park, then after the weekend it became strong again. Price reflects one day free for a week rental. We would have given them a 10 rating except they charged us $4 for checking in less than 2 hours before their official 2:00 check-in time. We thought that was nit-picky, especially since we were here for a week.

Price reflects a 10% Good Sam discount. This is a very pretty park with its trees and creek view. The people are hard working and aim to please. However, the sites are very close together; the neighbors' sewer hookup was only 4' from our front door! We were lucky that in the week we stayed there we had immediate neighbors for only 3 nights. The wi-fi signal was good, the TV signal rather fuzzy, and they needed some trash cans for garbage. We probably would not stay here again.

The people here are great, very friendly and helpful. We thought we had the best site, #29 at the edge of the woods and very private. Our site was level, the services were great, including the internet access. The only negative was that we had no cell phone service on our Verizon phone. We would definitely come back here again.

Given what it is, a municipal park without some services (sewer, wi-fi), it is a beautiful park. We were in a heavily treed area close to the reservoir. It was pristine woods camping at its best! The sites are very well spaced for maximum privacy. It was, however, a challenge to back our trailer in between the trees, but once we got there, we loved it. Our site was fairly level. There is a bike path attached to the park that was great for touring the woods, even went to G. Washington's headquarters site! We would definitely return.
