Nice, clean, well organized park. Mainly used by golfers but suitable for overnight use or for those visiting the area. Rate is for a full hookup 30A site. Sites are a bit narrow if you have a multi-slide unit. Great 9 hole golf course as well. We will return!!

The park is in 2 areas; one on each side of the office. We were on the south end. The sites alternate concrete or grass parking pads and they appear to only use the grass sites as the park fills. This makes for large sites during slower times. The park is right on the river and you can watch the river traffic go by. The Wi-Fi is unpredictable and can be good or gone several times an hour. They have great laundry facilities at a very reasonable price. We would stay again because of the convenient location and great views. Don't use your GPS for directions; stay on Hwy 131 until you get to the sign for the park.

This park is one of a number in the Pat Harrison Water Park system. The park offers full services and has large sites with either paved or concrete pads as well as fire pits and barbecue stands. They offer PA reductions on certain days as well as senior discounts. A nice quite getaway. We would stay again if in the area.

This is a nice COE park with large trees, large sites, kids playgrounds and access to fishing. This is a very nice park and apparently is only full during summer weekends. They even have laundry facilities. What great value. It would be a nice place to spend some time and television is available via antenna. Access signage is a little inadequate so be sure you have good local directions. It is best to come from the Selma entrance. We would certainly stay again if in the area.

This is an older park with several large pull throughs and a number of smaller long term back in sites. The park services are well used and upgrades are planned both for laundry and Wi-Fi. Wi-Fi at present is extra through a off-site provider. We would stay again if passing through as parks are quite limited in the Atlanta area.

This is a very convenient site while traveling through Augusta. It appears to have more than the 85 spaces listed as the area we were in looked new. These sites were very large but backed on to a busy street so were quite noisy. The park also has no laundry and the office is only open in the afternoon. We would stay again if passing through the area. Cash Only.

Nice, well maintained park with a site for everything from tents to large buses. Laundry facilities are, however, limited for such a large park. They have only 4 washers and 2 dryers available for over 200 sites and only 2 restroom facilities. Wi-Fi is an old Tengo system (11 Mbps) with lots of sites but it did not work while we were there. We would stay again if in the area.

This park is a real camping experience with all the conveniences. The sites are quite large and the back-in sites on the river are very nice. The site has several Wi-Fi access points but the service seemed slow and spotty. We learned before leaving that the access point closest to us had accidentally been turned off. You get 6 hours per day for free or can pay extra for high speed. We did both but didn't notice much difference. Our only negative comment is the dust caused by none of the roads being paved or gravel. If you are in an area with lots of traffic it would keep you busy cleaning. We would stay again if in the area.

A very congested older park that has permanent residents and lots of snowbirds. The park is convenient to area attractions and has shopping within walking distance. They have reasonable WIFI with lots of sites. It gets slow when busy but if you use it early in the morning or late @ night it can be quite good. They only accept GS for 2 days and cable is $2 extra.

Easy access from Hwy 95 & 204 with efficient check in and a guide to site. Sites are mostly dirt with some grass and gravel. They apparently offer dog walking if you are gone on a tour for the day. This is a good park while visiting Savannah for a few days. Can be very busy from mid March to mid May.

Easy access from I-95 and to the St. Augustine attractions. The park appears be occupied by a large group traveling to and from the southern Florida winter sites. The sites are large and have a gravel pad with grass site. Internet is reasonable most times during the day. We would stay again if in the area.

Staff are very helpful and can provide lots of info for the area even if they don't appear to love their jobs. The website and site brochure are a bit misleading as the 8 laundry locations have been reduced to 3 and some other facilities have changed. The park is on the flight path for the airport which can be very busy. They park is generally well maintained especially in the large area occupied by the seasonal Quebec population. Most signs in the park are only in French. Wi-Fi is okay and they offer RV storage. We would stay again if in the area for a short time.

PA rates are offered even during the winter for selected spots in the old area of the park (near the highway). These sites are serviceable but are not well maintained. The new area and near the water are much larger sites and well laid out. The management crew are fast and friendly. WI-FI at our site was better than in most parks. We would stay again if PA was available.

Easy access from highway but far enough away that noise is not a problem. Sites are mostly grass with some concrete patios. As with most Florida parks it has a large winter season population as well as some longer term residents. WI-FI was reasonable and they offer storage. Good short term park, we would stay again if in the area.

A very nice park with most of the pads owner-occupied and some rented when not in use by the owner. This makes for a very clean quite park with landscaping beyond your normal RV park. This is the first park we've been in with Tengo internet faster than 11 Mbps. 54 Mbps was quite common at our site which was nice. It did drop out quite often which was a little frustrating. In general it is a first class operation and we would splurge to stay again if in the area.

A nice park with easy in and out pull-throughs. Services were good and Wi-Fi initially seemed fast, but slowed down with use. An upgrade to the paved driveways is in order as it is badly broken up. We would stay again if in the area.

This is a very nice park with paved roads and sites with concrete pads and gravel parking pads. Each site also has a small concrete patio c/w picnic table. They provide a separate water source for RV washing at selected sites which is very unusual. They also have a nice private beach. The only down items are the slow Tengo Wi-Fi and the cable is really only beneficial to long term guests. I would have expected highspeed Wi-Fi and better cable for the price.

This park is off the main highways in the area, but very easy to find. Access to sites is good and each site has lots of space. They have a nice duck pond with weird black and white ducks which sets the tone for the interesting longer term residents. They are in the process of connecting to cable and high speed internet. Laundry facilities were clean and inexpensive. Rate is for PA. We would stay again if in the area.

This is a nice park located so it's easy to get to attractions in the New Orleans area. They even provide a shuttle to the French Section for $5 return. The staff was very friendly and helpful. However: you will forget all that, when you try to use their pitiful internet. This system would make Tengo systems seem lightning quick. We were told they are looking into improvements. If you use internet and don't have your own, be prepared for a the most frustrating experience of your life. We would stay stay again only if the internet had substantial improvements.

This is one of the best parks for 1000's of miles. The roads and pads are all concrete, complete with a small pond to separate the units and provide some fishing. The management look after you like a five star hotel. The services are located in exactly the right location and they even pick up garbage at your site every day. The rate is a real bargain. They are in the process of upgrading their WiFi. It was not good while we were here. I'm sure if it's handled like the rest of the park, it will be great shortly. We would definitely stay again if in the area.

Great place for overnight. Quiet, easy access to highway. If you intend to stay March to May, you will need a reservation as the birders take over. WiFi worked well while we were here. Would stay again if in the area.

Nice park with night lighting for fishing. The sites are well laid out, but are very short and close together. Prior to going, make sure to stock up on supplies as groceries are 30 minutes one way. WiFi was out when we were here, and for several days before we arrived.

This park is a great way to experience San Padre Island. The park has no services except for restrooms and cold showers. The beach side sites have a gravel pad and parking area as well as a concrete picnic table. The land side are paved sites with only a picnic table. You are allowed to camp right on the beach further down the road for free if you wish. The park is occupied by Winter Texans from November to April and does not take reservations. It is worth a phone call to make sure a space is available prior to driving out and paying the $10 entrance fee (good for 7 days) to get in to the park. This is a great place for walks, bike rides, and surf fishing. We would certainly plan a longer stay if in the area again.

This is an older park located close to everything in Corpus Christi and area. It has had some upgrades and the pull-through sites for short term guests look very nice. The park has some longer term guests and a large group of Winter Texans. These occupy the back-ins around the edge. They also have a few sites parallel to the entrance road. Quite unique. Services are convenient. Wi-Fi starts fast but deteriorates to very slow. They do have several hot spots with adequate signal but all are slow. We would stay again if in the area but would reserve ahead to get a new pull through.

This is an older park and I was told that it was originally laid out for a trailer park. This is likely the reason for the huge sites. Services connections are difficult as water and power are at the rear of the site and the sewer is about 45' toward the front. Most need to buy extra water or sewer hose . The sites very in construction. Some are 'grass' with a gravel parking area, some have a concrete patio with gravel parking, and others have a concrete pad and patio. They seem to have lots of activities as well as a nice pool and hot tub. Cable TV is available but you pay extra by the month. Wi-Fi is only 11Mbps and is almost useless. The location is not near anything in particular, but you are close to Brownsville, San Padre Island or several golf courses. There may be better options in the area.

This is a nice flat park with long pull-throughs and easily accessible service. Check in was easy and quick. They use Tengo for internet so it is SLOW. You get some highway noise, but for the easy access it is no problem. We would stay in again if in the area.

This park was a lot better than expected. RV parks attached to motels can be a poor after thought. This park is laid out well and has nice pull throughs. The services are good, but the sewage drain does not screw in. The WIFI is strong and fast. There is some noise from I-10. The roadways are gravel, so it could get dusty if busy. We would stay again if in the area.

The park is a bit off the highway but worth the drive to get away from the highway and train noise. The park has an interesting layout and lots of space. The manager is friendly as are the snowbirds that have been coming for years. The internet is limited as it is via satellite. Others have commented on the green water in the pool. The pool was green when we were there as well. The green is a combination of the very clear water and the color of the concrete bottom. We would stay again if in the area.

The staff at the park were friendly and helpful when they could be. The park is very crowded. We were lucky to get a large pull through site. The majority of sites are permanent residents who have collected a great deal of junk over time. The main complaint was the very poor maintenance of the laundry facilities. They have 8 washers and dryers, and while we were there a total of 3 were operational. It was made worse by some using coins and some using a special card. This was a real inconvenience. Rate was with PA discount.

This would have been a nice park when new. The pictures on the web are misleading as all the grass is brown or missing. The layout, however, is quite good. This is a good stop when traveling I-5. The WIFI is very slow ( Tengo), and they charge for a second computer. We would stay again if traveling I-5.

As others have said the park layout is unusual. Our visit was made worse as we arrived late, and the sites were covered with ice and snow. The tandem arrangement must be really difficult if the park was full. The host was great to us and reopened the office so we could register. It was too cold to use services, but I presume they worked fine. The area is close to a truck stop, and several motor hotels so the traffic noise was noticeable. They require cash payment.

This park appears to be well maintained and they certainly made a great effort at Christmas lighting near the entrance. The spaces are adequate and are easy to navigate. Services are convenient. The WI-FI was quite slow and may not work further from the office. They apparently have several sites but we could only see 3 or 4 and they were all weak. Likely due to all the large trees. Access to the park is easy but is via a very narrow road with steep ditches – be careful. Access from the site may take some patience if you are trying to get to Hwy. 99. Alternate routes should be considered. Would definitely stay again when in the area.

Very convenient access on and off I-5. Some traffic noise from local traffic but not really a concern. Pad are nice level concrete but just wide enough for sides on one side. The sites would be tight if all were full. May be tight to maneuver if all sites were full. WI-FI was strong and fast. 1 computer is free but they charge for a second. We would stay again while traveling on I-5.

Other reviewers have done a good job with the park reviews. The side hill is nice for view but steep to walk or drive. The park is very clean and the permanent residents seem very friendly. The park is on a dead end road which goes to a local park on the river. A walkway from the park leads toward downtown which can provide a nice circle walk which takes about an hour. We would stay again when traveling I-5 or if visiting the area.

This golf course has 2 distinct RV sections. This first is near the highway and in a treed area offering water and power. The second is near the clubhouse is an open field area with very large sites and full services for those who wish to golf. We stayed in the latter. The layout is for pull-though and has back to back services so the direction of entry alternates. The very large space for each site and lack of signage or direction from staff made it difficult to determine where to park. (this,however, was entertaining if you were the first in for the night.) They did have internet but it was slow and dropped out regularly. The RV park and golf course could be nicer with a little TLC. They offer a 10% discount for AAA members.

This is a very nice provincial park. As others have stated it has paved roads, some flush toilets, nice beach and several walking trails. The sites are private and the park appears to be a mostly family park. The lake is used for everything form water skiing to fishing so be prepared to share. The cabins on the other side of the lake seem to keep to themselves or only use the middle of the lake for their water sports. The only confusing part appeared to be the reserved/available system used for reservable sites. This leads to a lot of stress when the park is nearly full and sites appear to be available. Hopefully this gets sorted out. We would stay here again and would NOT reserve a site.

This municipal park has a great location with large trees and spacious sites. It reminds you of a BC provincial park. Most sites have no services and only a few have power. Most powered sites are doubles and while we were there most had at least 2 units. A reservation would be necessary for a serviced site during the summer. Our rate was for a non-serviced site. Easy access to the river for fishing. We would stay again.

Nice location in the trees by the river. They have both pull-through and back-in sites. They have common utilities for 2 sites which make it very difficult for every other back-in site. The roads are mainly dirt which was dusty while we were there. The Wi-Fi was very strong and fast. The PAR 3 golf was a quite challenging 18 hole course with the river adjacent to several holes. They also have a driving range. We would stay again.

The park is well organized,clean and has easy access as others have stated. The roadways are gravel which may become dusty if the park is busy. The additional charges for Wi-Fi and cable TV are a bit annoying, but the owner's philosophy is user pay. He believes not everyone wants those services so why should they be included in the basic cost. We stayed 3 different times in July so would definitely stay again if in the area.

This is a large park with all facilities. Each site has a gravel parking area for your extra vehicle, picnic table and a small grass area. The streets are paved which is great. One item they have which I haven't seen before is a 'nuisance' charge of $25 to $50 for a number of things. This seems like an efficiently run operation and we would stay again if in the Calgary area.

This is a nice quiet park located in a residential area. The park is older but still offers back-in sites large enough for big rigs. One concern may be the lack of controlled access as a city lane runs through the park. This really should not be a problem as the town still has a 9:00 curfew. The park is handy to downtown so you can walk most places. The manager is a great lady who makes sure you don't have any problems and has a few good stories to share if you interested. We would stay again if in the area.

This is a well maintained older park with large paved sites and wide driveways. It would be hard to feel crowded in this park. Everything appears clean and well maintained.

This is a new park that never got finished before it got overrun by construction workers who could find no other place to stay. That being said it has potential with reasonable space per site as well as large turning areas which make for easy in and out. The dust may be a problem at times. This still is a good place to overnight with all facilities. The manager is trying hard to please everyone and certainly is doing a good job of it. We would overnight here again

This is an older park with very tight spaces for the many seasonal and few nightly campers. The services are shared for some and the Wi-Fi although a strong signal does not work well.

This park is set up for overnight RV's but could be a good location if visiting area attractions. It is basically a large gravel lot with services. The sites are very large as you can tell the 30A sites have been reduced by half. They have little extra's like a playground and good Wi-Fi. The biggest plus is the great laundry facilities with lots clean of washers and dryers. Exceptional for a park of this size. We would stay again if in the area.

The good part of this park is it has very easy on and off I-35. The sites are large enough pull throughs with services. The operator needs to put a little more effort into maintaining the sites as a concrete walkway, which was a good idea, is now broken up and uneven and a real hazard. The night we were their it rained and in the morning the areas that were plain dirt were now gooey mud. The Wi-Fi was good. We would stay overnight again as the location is convenient and far enough away from I-35 traffic is not a problem. The rate is high for services but they offer good discounts for many organizations.

This is a very nice park adjacent to lakes. The sites are very large and have paved parking for the RV as well as parking. The tables provided are huge and could easily seat 8 people. The park was busy in October so I'm sure reservations would be required during the summer. The COE parks are very well laid out and seem to be very good value.

This park is part of Graceland and has been around for a while. It offers a great location if visiting Graceland and it's attractions. They have operators for tours downtown and a great rib place up the road that picks you up in a pink Cadillac. The sites are more than adequate and they even have a tenting area. I would stay here again for convenience even if not visiting Graceland.

This park has nothing special but everything works well, has easy access, all types of sites and is next door to Camping World which can't hurt if you've been traveling for a while. They can arrange tours to most of the Nashville attractions and offer a discount to a dinner theater next door. It's good value.

This is a large park that seemed quite busy. I'm sure reservations would be necessary in the summer. We were in area H and I would not recommend it. The sites are paved but are not level and are on an arc. The services are not consistent. Some sites have their own services, some sites share 1 service which has 1-30A and 1-50A service. Water services are the same. The other areas of the park are mostly back-in and are very nice sites. We would stay again but would reserve a site in area D

This park is the ideal site for travelers on I-81 heading north or south. It is easy to access, off the main highway and has easy access pull throughs.

This is a small park located on the creek, as it is a small park the it is quite and quaint. Half the sites are on the river and a few none serviced sites are available for tents. A few sites appear to be seasonal campers. The owner is not always on site but usually available by phone. The access is via a loop around downtown. Your GPS may suggest a route downtown and over a one lane bridge. Unless you have a small van use the signage provided on Hwy. 11. We would certainly return when in the area. Hopefully for more than two days.

This is a large older park with different class of sites depending on the area you are in. We had a nice back-in site. The area had a weird utilities arrangement where 2 share one post so every other site has a problem with utilities. The park could use a few upgrades. WiFi was good and several locations are available throughout the park. It is a great location to visit the Hopewell Rocks.

This is an older park with a nice location on the river. The spaces are either back-in or pull through. Most are 30 amp sites. The sites are quite narrow and if the park was full would be very congested. The laundry and washrooms need some cleanup. This may be because it was the end of the season. They have 2 Wi-Fi sites but even with a strong signal could not provide continuous service with only a few campers in the park. Rate is with Good Sam discount.

This park has quite a few seasonal sites for the size of the park. The overnight sites are mostly pull-through. The site has gorgeous views and sunsets if you get the last site in the row and most have grass areas as well as gravel to park on. The sad thing for people that tent is they only have pit toilets. If you don't have your own facilities you may want to pass on this site.

This park always gets great ratings and deserves every one of them. The sites are treed and well spaced and the Wi-Fi is reasonable even in the trees.

This is a large park that has been around for a while. The layout is a bit unusual with back to back sites sharing a single power/water post.

The site is good value and has very easy access to all the attractions near Halifax.

A very nice park with large sites and 15 or 30 amp . The sites are unusual shapes in some areas of the park which means the service locations many not suit everyone.

Nice location with some ocean access. The RV sites are all grassed and have a very unique arrangement. It was fine when we were there, but if all their seasonals were present it could be very crowded. The tent sites were strung along a road past the dock and seemed to be laid out as an after thought. The owners are great hosts and offer boat tours of the area and free coffee in the common area. The sites are only water and power, and the dump is off site.

This park has a good number of seasonal campers which most parks seem to have these days. It is a little off the beaten path but does offer full service sites close to the water.

This park has most things an Rver could ask for. They offer treed or open sites, some with great views as well as a very private beach down a back road. They have a few full hookup sites but most are either power or unserviced. They also operate an oyster farm, so for those who like fresh oysters they are available at the office.

Full service, partial service, and no service sites are available. The full service sites are most popular; a few partial are used; and it looks like only a few no service sites are ever used. The park has a large area which includes a large open field for games. The park has all the assets but comes up short for service and upkeep. It probably is still the best park in the area.

This park, as many have said, is basically a gravel parking lot with some treed sites and and a few tent sites. It is used by a number of caravan operators so can be quite busy. It's a perfect place for easy access to Gros Morne with full service and good WI-FI.

This park has open and treed sites. Pit toilets are in place throughout the parks and a 'Comfort Station' with flush toilets and showers is available. This park is not really set up for larger rigs as the roads are very narrow making it difficult to park. Overflow in the park may be a better idea. Staff are friendly and very accommodating. This is a good central location to visit the northern tip of Newfoundland.

This site is basically a parking lot. That is the bad news. The good news is it is right across a quite lane from the ocean. The sites are relatively flat, have some grass and have picnic tables and a unique fire 'pit'. All sites are full service 30A and Wi-Fi works almost to the last unit. The owner has a nice veranda c/w chairs to use if it doesn't work at your site. Washrooms are clean with lots of hot water. Nice golf course just down the road. Good value. We would stay again if in the area.

Nice municipal park next to the Exploits river. Access from the TCH is easy,quick and well marked. Interior roads are gravel. The sites are large and they have both back-in and pull through. All sites are 30A full services. They offer Wi-Fi but it only works near the office. One shower and one laundry facility are provided. The 4 showers all have exterior access and are uni-sex. Our rate was for a pull-through. We would stay again if in the area.

This is another quality provincial park. The sites are quite private and some tenting sites are provided with stairs up or down to reach very secluded spots, many adjacent to the water. Unserviced sites are $15 and serviced are $23. Water advisory required it to be boiled. This is the perfect location for day trips to Twillingate and the Islands. Laundry facility and 'Comfort Station' are at one end of the park.

This park is a long narrow site which means a lot of traffic as the roads are one way. Sites are large and quite private with tables and fire pits. This site had a lot of damage from hurricane Igor and as such some maintenance has suffered. Unserviced sites are $ 15 and serviced are $ 23. Water advisory required it to be boiled. The road to the park is either 5 or 12 km of rough gravel road. Good location to tour the Bonavista area from.

This is a great park. The sites are large and some power sites are available. Pit toilets are in place throughout the parks and a 'Comfort Station' with flush toilets and showers is available near the entrance. The park staff were great and even checked for space in another park for us listing sites etc. They have by far the cleanest operation we've seen for washrooms, garbage etc. They even provide individual garbage and recycle containers for each site. Unserviced sites are $15 and serviced are $23. Water advisory required it to be boiled. We would like to return so we could play the golf course next door. Wi-Fi is available on a trail basis near the entrance.

This park has 4 loops. The first 3 are in trees with services and comfort stations. The 4th loop is more of an open parking lot with pull through sites all with 50A services. A cord is provided to allow conversion from 50A to 30A service. Loop 4 is the only one provided with Wi-Fi. I'm not sure of the coverage. We were close to the antenna and the signal was fine. This is a very convenient location to get to any of St. John's attractions as well as circle tours of the Avalon peninsula. The only negative comment I would have is the laundry seems very expensive compared to other equivalent facilities. We would stay again.

The site is basically a gravel parking lot as stated before. The sites are mostly level and several have great views of the Argentia harbour. The park has 24 hour security and now has high speed Internet. It makes a convenient location to check out Placentia and the surrounding area. We would use this location again if in the area.

This park does not have regular provincial park sites. A parking lot @ the end of a 6 km gravel and rock road can be used for self contained RV's. It has pit toilets and picnic tables and access to the cove. The only really good part about the facility is it is free!

This park is located to cater to RVers catching the ferry to Newfoundland. It is very convenient and has easy access to the mostly pull through sites. The sites are completely grassed but not all sites are level. The hosts are very accommodating and provide an information building with pamphlets and other info on the area. You can even borrow books and DVDs for those long rainy nights. They have just upgraded their Internet, which provides a strong signal but has a download limiter which can be frustrating if you use Skype or try to download pictures. They also have the most complete recycling program I've seen to date. We would definitely stay again even if the little fish & chip stand which makes great meals wasn't so convenient.

This park has been operating for a while as noted by the unusual water/power connections and the single shower/washroom facility. The sites are very large and mostly, if not all, back-ins. Your RV is surrounded by grass which seems to get cut several times a week. The park has a good laundry facility and also has a driving range and 9 hole golf course on the same property. This is a nice quiet park we would certainly visit again.

Nice national park with 3 different campgrounds. We were in the Des-Rosiers park c/w electricity. The park is very private as the undergrowth is so thick it even separates the camping and table areas. The $ 36 fee does not include the entrance fee per person which adds over $ 15 for a couple. National Park camping is expensive!

This is an older park that appears to have had many renovations. Some sites are quite narrow. They offer tent, partial and full service sites. It is an easy location to find and the staff are friendly. Wi-Fi is great from their many sites. The only negative is they allow fires and with the sites so close you may get smoke from many sources. Rate is with CAA discount.

This park is layed out well for an overnight stay. The services are in good locations and the Wi-Fi works well. The spaces are mainly pull-through and provide adequate space for slides etc. The main ring road is paved and all other roads are gravel with lots of potholes. Levis is a great place to stay when visiting Old Quebec. The ferry across the river takes 10 minutes and you get off right in lower Old Quebec. Parking is usually available at $6 to $10 per day depending on how early you get there in the morning. All things considered I feel the park is a little overpriced for what you get – but most things around Quebec City seem expensive.

It is easy to see why this park had a Trailer Life rating as the number 1 park in Canada. Each site has a concrete fire pit, concrete block patio, outdoor patio set as the table including a swing. The roads are a compacted crushed rock which looks nice and is not dusty as the 8 kph speed limit is followed by all in the park. The park has a lot of seasonal sites which are very well maintained and include water features etc. The only negative comments would be the shower stall drains overflow onto the washroom floor which makes it very slippery. The Wi-Fi seems a bit flaky and for $5 you would expect great performance. Rate is with GS discount.

This is a nice spacious park with sites arranged in pods of 7 to 9 sites. This keeps the local traffic to a minimum. Wi-Fi is only available near the office. A few tables and benches have been provided so if you have a good battery it is only a minor inconvenience. Sewer is not available at any sites and only 1 dump site is provided for the entire park. The dump was not busy when we were there so maybe it's not an issue. Rate is with CAA discount before taxes.

This site has many seasonal sites. The sites are very large and well treed so the odd derelict trailers won't bother you. The sites only have power and water and the locations seem to be very near the front of most sites which means you may need 100' of hose or cable. The roads are dirt which can be very dusty if you are near the entrance. Could be a very nice park if they spent a few dollars.

This is a nice quite place next to Champlain Park and less than 5 minute walk to the lake. The park is old but well kept and clean. It has a number of long time seasonal units which don't look to be used much. Voltage problems seemed to have been fixed as it was good while we were here. Wi-Fi was a bit weak. With all the trees that is understandable. We would stay here again. Rate is with CAA discount.

Nice park with mostly seasonal sites. Some have been there for a long time as the owners are third generation. Area is quite sandy with a very nice beach. Overnight sites seem closest to the beach. They offer 1 hour free internet. Has a chip place at the entrance that is supposed to be very good. We weren't able to try it as a storm knocked out power the evening we were here. Would stay here again. Rate includes CAA discount.

The RV portion of the park is only a few years old but already shows signs of disrepair. All facilities need a good cleaning. Wi-Fi is only available near the office. I didn't count the tent sites as they are not well marked and could range from 10-20 to many more if people were together. We would however, stay again if in the area as it is the most convenient park in the area. For those with kids they have an amusement park, wildlife park and other activities.

The 2007 reviewer was very accurate. I would say the number of useable sites is way less than 60. The washrooms and showers have not been used for months ( or years). The site is in need of a lot of updating; however, we would stay again just for the quiet. The WI-FI was weak but did work. The $38 is quite expensive for the services available. The cafe has a great collection of stuffed animals including a caribou.

Price is for a 30A water only site. Park has easy access and is quite spacious, at least in the area we were. It is obviously an old KOA. We were pleased with the entire park The only thing they need to do is pave the major roads or apply a chemical to keep the dust down. We would stay again just for the convenience.

Our rate was for a 30A water only pull-through site.The park has plenty of space and seems to be well layed out. The area we were in had the pull-throughs organized in alternating directions which can create a few problems if everyone wants to leave @ once. The park is close to the highway and has a few dust issues or I would have rated it even higher. WIFI is an extra $ 3.00 or less if you purchase it for several days.

We stayed in a water and 30A site near the back. It was a great location although a little far from the showers. Wi-Fi worked if you were outside but was quite weak. It is a great site for Family Reunions etc. as they have a great variety of RV and motel sites as well as a play ground for kids, water slide and mini golf. I would have rated it higher except the laundry is shared with staff and several washers and dryers are for them only. This can make coordinating washing and drying difficult. The number of RV sites listed includes several emergency sites that most travelers wouldn't use (is attached to the motel). Our rate was with the CAA discount.

This park is a mobile home park with a few RV sites for temporary workers. We stayed here because the Regional Park was full and it has hookups unlike Wal-Mart. The sites are large with good water pressure, sewer and shared 30A power. This ended up being a better choice than the Regional park as it was also full of temporary workers and was really is disarray. No service other than your site. They don't provide Wi-Fi but a few unprotected site were available when we were there.

The sites include 15 Chalets and 25 RV sites. The sites have power, water and sewer for the pull-through sites, but I'm not sure about the back in sites. The general appearance of the park made it seem that they were not ready for the season to begin. Power and water was not available to all sites and the site we had was a 30A outlet not the 20A or 50A advertised. Used equipment littered the site and the park seemed quite in need of maintenance for such a new park. The Chalets seemed to be in a similar state from part of our group that stayed in them. The previous reviewer indicated Wi-Fi. We did not have our computer so I'm not sure if it was provided. The web site does not mention it. This park could be a great place to overnight with a little effort. Now it is only adequate for an overnight stop. (The golf course and RV park next door is in a similar state.)

This Recreation Site is almost Provincial Park quality @ a great price. Some sites are right on Mabel Lake and offer great views and access to fishing or other water activities. Some sites are small but most accommodate larger RV's. The road to the site is about 28 km's of gravel (or mud) after you leave the pavement. The last few km's are very steep down to the lake. Well worth the trip. Will definitely go again.

A very large park with paved roads, hot showers and a very long beach on Shuswap lake. This park is full all summer so if you want a spot reserve early or be prepared to wait for days for one of the non reservable sites. Maybe a bit overpriced for the services.

The sites are a bit narrow and only a few are long enough for larger rigs. The main reason to stay here is for the Hot Springs which are a short walk form the campground. Narrow, winding, paved road from Nakusp. Usually a quiet place to camp.

Site quality varied depending on where you were placed. Our site on the creek was great. Site boundaries were a little hard to figure out. When we were there, green caterpillars were falling from the trees and were all over everything. Freaked out the wife. Apparently this happens every 10 years or so. Would go back if in the area.

This park is mainly for people on summer vacation that want lake access. Most lake sites are very close together and those further away are terraced so you look down on your neighbor. The main highway is right adjacent to the park and can be very noisy. The site roads are mostly dirt as are the sites. They are trying to improve the park and have a new office and will have 60 new sites c/w all services this summer. The price is very expensive for what you get and during the summer season will be even more expensive. We would stay again if we had to stay overnight in Penticton as only a few RV parks remain.

We have stayed at this park several times. It is nice to see the trees now large enough to provide shade. The site has lots of free space and access to the river. The park seems to have attracted a large number of seasonal guests which are slowly taking over the park. If you want to stay during the summer, a reservation would be necessary. You get 10% off at the Kettle Valley Golf course if they know you are staying here. We would stay again but only for overnight ( and the golf). WiFi is an extra fee.

Nice park set up for big rigs. The area is nicely maintained and the space per site is reasonable. The streets are either paved or gravel and each site has a gravel location for your unit. The location has great access to most attractions and the highway noise is not really noticeable. The WiFi has been improved with 2 sites available. The price seems a little steep but it is certainly the best park in the area. The only negative comment I have is while we were here the water system had great quantities of air in it. This created all kinds of noise and concerns with air in our hot water tank. This may only be temporary as I don't believe the water system is on all winter. We would stay again if in the area.

The park looks like it would be a very nice place to stay during their typical operating season. As others have indicated the management is a bit slack this time of year. We found the laundry area quite messy and one of the washers looked like someone washed a black dog in it. They are however very helpful if you can catch them during one of their “visits”. The WI-FI was good when we were there. We could not get TV reception even though they listed a number of channels available. This is a good location to stay when visiting Craters of the Moon park. We would stay again but would check to see if the dog is still there before using the washing machines.

The park is older as others have stated and does have quite a few long term residents. The sites were ample in size and everything worked well. The office was a bit 'hit and miss' but it would likely improve as they got closer to their busy season. They had lots of flowers ready to plant to spruce things up. They should also take a paint brush to the picnic tables as most of the paint is peeled off. The huckleberry marmalade they sell at the office was great. Would stop again if only for the marmalade. Washrooms and laundry were spotless.

The previous reviewer ( C16 ) has said it all. The park is built to a high quality and I believe they intend to keep it that way. The park would be very crowded if full as we shared an empty site to park our truck. WI-FI would also need to be expanded as it became very slow during peak user periods to the point it was a waste of time. We found the location easy to find and very easy to get to anywhere in the Salt Lake area quickly. We would certainly stay again if in the area. They provided a Good Sam discount.

This park is great for a few days. The sites are quite close together and our site was a very tight pull through. The site looked level but required a lot of effort to get our unit level.

Great location to get a feel for the area. The sites are not level as previously stated. The roads a good for biking and a couple of interesting hikes are available. Campground can get very windy.

The part of the park we were in, was the original section and had nice trees, grass and a concrete pad for your unit. The WiFi was weak, likely because of the trees, even though they have @ least 2 sites. They do not take credit cards so you need cash or check. Great location to visit Zion.

Previous reviews indicated this, so I simply used the dump site on the way out.

The Park has the potential to be a great place to stop. However, the sites are so narrow if the adjacent unit has a slide you may not have room for your table let alone put out your awning.
