Great park, with excellent access to Mt. Rushmore. The KOA was a little closer to Rushmore, but we looked and this place had much more private, shaded spots. It's a beautiful location, with lots of pine trees and a nice large meadow. The site was way out of level, but I'm willing to spend time leveling for nice scenery. I'm going to give one word of caution though, there is at least one area that is very tight for larger rigs. The site we originally got was along a very narrow access road with pines trees very close together and in the way. I tried unsuccessfully, even with the nice neighbor's help, to get into the site and it just wasn't going to work. Its the first time I have ever had to give up and ask for another site. They were very nice about it though and the next site was a breeze to back into. They have access for even the largest rigs, you just have to stay out of that one section. We would definitely stay here again.
I know my rating is much lower than the other's, but we just didn't have a good experience or think the park was that nice, especially for the price. It is right across the street from lake access and you're probably not going to do any better for location to Lake Tahoe. It's also nicely shaded with pine trees. That's about all I have to say that's good. The beach across the street was crowded with noisy drunks and the tent campers at this place were absolute savages. Loud, foul-mouthed drunks (and I'm a drinker). I felt so sorry for the one legitimate family in the tent area, next to all these people. They looked pretty unhappy about it. Luckily I had one large yard-sized trash bag I keep in the trailer, because our site was full of trash (mostly alcohol related) when we arrived. I had to put on gloves and fill the large trash bag half full- that's how much trash was left behind; and no it wasn't the bears, it was dumped in piles. The sites are close together and there is no privacy what-so-ever. The staff was very friendly, but keep in mind it's college kids who don't know anything about RV'ing. The access roads and sites are tight like others have mentioned, but you just have to be careful where you go. There are spots that will accommodate big rigs, you may just need to check your site first and ask for another if its too small. We had no problem getting in and out. I could see this place being better in the winter, when there's less trouble-makers and cheaper rates, but we won't stay here again.
I suspect the only reason this campground previously got an "8" is that an owner or their affiliate posted the below review. I wish I had noticed this before we stayed here. The reviewer only has 2 reviews, and they are both for this campground. It looks close to the interstate on a map, but actually requires a fair amount of driving on smaller roads. This campground IS NOT lake front. That is a lie; it has a small man-made pond and no sites back up to this either. The gate and entry road are a bit tight. The sites are gravel and required a little leveling. Some buildings are in very poor shape. The dumpsters were overflowing, and the park smelled of garbage and sewer. The little playhouse at the playground was full of trash, and there was trash throughout the park. Most of the surrounding trailers were permanent and had a lot of clutter out front and/or permanent porches full of junk. The electricity box is behind the site and my cord fell just short. Luckily I have a 30AMP extension cord. We got suckered by the bogus review on here; don't let the same happen to you. Look at my review history and the "8" reviewer's history.
Really nice park, especially considering it's in a fairly urban area. It's also giant. The only park I have come across that's larger, is Fort Wilderness. Lots of features and the staff has really simplified the process of taking public transit into D.C.. The park is run very efficiently and professionally, with very friendly staff. The sites are gravel and required a little leveling, but are nicely shaded. The have a nice little store, with a whole separate section with RV parts/supplies. I was shocked at how well stocked it was for its size and they actually beat Camping World's price on every item I could remember the price on. Keep in mind they are an RV park; I thought that was impressive. Nice pool area (two pools), though it was still a little crowded given how large this place is. We don't bring pets, but they have a huge field for pets to play in. The freeways driving in to the park can be tight and have a lot of traffic, but I suspect our GPS didn't pick the most RV friendly route.
The park was very new, clean and had a nice pool, but beyond that was nothing special and was OK for overnight. The sewer hookup is toward the front of the site and our 20' hose would not reach it. I noticed almost no one was hooked up, probably for this reason. The one unit hooked up was using two long hoses connected together. Sites are gravel and ours required side-to-side leveling. All this was very annoying when you are hoping to pull in quickly for the night.
We originally stopped at the Comfort Inn RV Park that was right next to the freeway. It was not even close to the $15 price PA members get ($29) and the sites/hookups seemed to be sub-standard, so we left and found Jolly Acres. It is 8 minutes away from I-95 but was a good decision. This was a legitimate, full-size RV park with plenty of room. The sites, hookups, and pads are in great shape. Nice location, under the trees, more geared toward RV'ers and even a duck pond and playground.
This is obviously a great campground and the positives vastly outweigh the negatives. So much in fact, it would take forever to list them. As such, I'm only going to list the very few things that weren't as good. It doesn't mean I didn't think it wasn't a good park. It seems that the preferred loops and some of the access roads/points were a bit tight. I thought the internal bus system was OK, but the buses to the Disney parks didn't come often enough. The boat to Magic Kingdom was very efficient though. Everything is a little overpriced; it's Disney so that should go without saying. If you live close enough to come here often, you should consider buying a golf cart. It's big enough to necessitate one and the rentals are absurdly priced at $63 a day.
Very nice location. Seems to be a bit of a hidden gem. Cedar Key does not have the kind of beaches you could swim, etc. at, but it has a great ocean view. The sites are fairly close together, but worth it for the view and location. There were some bugs also. The hookups are very new and in great shape. The managers were great. I came out and the guy was parking and leveling my rig for me. Wow, I'm usually shocked to even get an escort to the site. They set up a hammock for us and found a gecko to show our daughter. Very genuinely friendly and welcoming folks, who obviously love what they do. I hate to say it, because it will make it harder to get a spot here in the future, but there is a reason everyone is giving this place a "9" or "10".
This price was with a AAA discount. This park is under some large trees and is nice enough, just not worth $40 to overnight. The access roads are tight is a couple spots, but the sites are more than long enough. The machines in the laundry room were all rusty. The pool closes at 7pm, which seems a little early considering how hot Florida is. Also, why can't my kid have an inflatable ring in the pool again?
The access roads were tight and our site was far, far from level. It was quite a project to try and level. This park seemed pretty run down. The hookups had exposed wiring and electrical tape visible that just didn't seem safe. The water had a brown tint to it and not just initially- it stayed that way. The playground was pretty much just an old swing set. It has The Shed BBQ restaurant on site. I thought it was sickening sweet and seemed like it was made in a crock-pot, never having seen smoke. I'd pass on this place unless you're desperate.
It worked OK for an overnight stay, but really not much else I could imagine one wanting to come here for. The pull-through was not level, which is always a pain if you're just pulling for the night. It was long enough to not un-hook, which was helpful. There was a little store with ice and supplies.
The owners here were great. They waited up for us to come in a little after closing and gave us an escort to the site and help setting up. There's plenty of room, easy to pull in/out, and our site was perfectly level. The hookups were in good shape and there are shade trees (a rarity for this area). If you are going to come in after 8PM call earlier and let them know or they will lock up and leave. The only reason I didn't give it a higher rating is the location. Willcox, AZ is not exactly a destination. If you have to overnight in this region, though, this was a great place to stop. I though this was a good value and appreciated the service.
The sites are fairly tight and the access roads are the same. Since people were hanging over the end of their short sites, it was a pain to get into our pull-through. Then it took an entire set of blocks just to level side-to-side and a whole bunch of blocks to level front-to-back. Really annoying for a quick overnight stay. It would have been easier to get into the back-ins actually and I would recommend you consider these as they have their own little area behind each. If you come from the west, you will be directed by signs and GPS off an exit where there is a huge dip in the city street and you will almost undoubtedly scrape in anything of a medium or larger size. The road is all scraped from this. The staff was very nice, but it doesn't make up for this parks shortcomings. For half the price I might put up with it to overnight here, but not at what they are charging. I will give them this; they did have some shade trees which are a bit rare in this neck of the woods.
If you're driving through and need a place to stop for the night, this will work. I can't imagine why else you would go here. They were very nice, but there is really no attraction here. Its sort of a dumpy area. The sites are pull-through gravel and were fairly level, but needed a slight amount of side-to-side leveling. The hookups are very new and in good order. The website advertised Wi-Fi and Cable TV, but neither worked. It was very quiet on a Saturday night. It has a graveyard along one side, if that bothers you. I didn't even notice until the morning. The only hospital for many, many miles is right across the street if you have medical concerns. I don't think there were any bathrooms/showers. Compared to many places we have overnighted that were not much better, their price of $27 is reasonable.
This is a nice location and is set under the pine trees. Some of the sites appear to have a fair amount of room, while others seem a bit limited on useful space for sitting outside. This looks like it would be a very kid-friendly park during the summer, with lot of things to do. The winter rate was a good value. Our space was fairly muddy and could have used some more gravel over the dirt. Good cable and Wi-Fi. The hook-ups were mediocre, both in design and condition. I make a habit of running the water a bit before I hook it to the trailer, and it was a good thing. It ran muddy, and I mean muddy, for a concerning amount of time before it turned clear. We never drink the water anyway, but I'm going to sanitize my system early after this trip. Overall, very promising though, and we plan to try it again.
Fantastic facilities and staff. The sites are very modern, level, and well kept. The pads are large, new concrete, and are spaced far apart. There are great amenities and all of the hook-ups are well designed, placed, and in perfect working order. The staff couldn't be nicer or more helpful. The employees said they are treated very well by their employer and it shows. They have propane available as well as some supplies at good prices. There is a shuttle to the casino and its restaurants, but you certainly don't have to be going to the casino to stay here. It's very well placed for visiting a lot of other places. The only reason I didn't give it a 10, is that it has a little bit of a parking lot feel. There's lots of nice grass and space, but there are no trees or landscaping around the spaces. There is a treeline about 50-75 yards away and some decent views though. Also, no campfires allowed; not in an outdoor fireplace or otherwise. Most aspects of this park should be the model that all others to follow.
The rate includes our small boat being docked. This is a pretty nice park/location as the Delta goes. I probably would not come here unless you had another reason to be on this area of the Delta. Gravel sites with good shade and large, mature trees. The sites on either side of us were open, but if they were occupied, there wouldn't have been a lot of room. It gets very windy even though the sites are lower than the levee. The road in is a very narrow levee road. The entrance to the road closer to the Antioch Bridge has a very steep narrow turn. The road coming in from near the Sherman/Brannan Island drawbridge is better. The owners were very helpful and friendly.
We camped in the sites closer to the lake. I though the road was large enough, but some of the sites are angled the wrong way for the direction of the road. Not too bad though. I went to the wrong loop (non-lakeside) initially and that one was very, very tight to fit through. Did I mention that it was super tight? That might be what the previous reviewer was referring to. I'm not sure why it says they don't have 50 AMP. Ours did. In fact, the 30 AMP was cracked with exposed copper. Not wanting to die, I used an adapter to use the 50 AMP which was in a little better shape. This place is pretty neat because its under large pine trees and feels a little rustic, but many sites have full hookups and cable. Wi-Fi is available for a fee, so I just used our Verizon 3G which had good reception. The beach is nearby for swimming and a great view of Mt. Shasta. There is a small general store and a basic grill/restaurant, with a limited bar. Its a good price for the location and amenities. We will definitely stay here again.
This campground is pretty urban. It is surrounded by condos and a 7-11. We were just passing through and needed a place to stop. If you are visiting the Portland area or need a place to sleep, this is a good place though. Although its urban, the upside is that it is close to stores and groceries. The staff was very friendly, helpful, and efficient. There are trees and shade. There's some grass and a picnic table. The hookups were in good condition. The sites are a decent size, but the access roads are fairly narrow, making it a little hard to go wide and turn into the pull-through sites.
Fairly close to downtown CDA and a good spot to stay for the Ironman event. The walk is a little difficult to town because you are forced to walk along a busy highway and bridge. The park is very large, with spaces fairly close together. It is well maintained. It has a pebble beach along the Spokane River, right before it lets into Lake Coeur d' Alene. There is an area for people swimming and pet swimming. The spaces are almost all pull-throughs and many will accommodate very large rigs. Our assigned space was a little small to fit both the trailer and tow vehicle. The spaces are level gravel. The laundry room was clean, with modern machines. The staff were friendly and helpful. The cable was fuzzy. Wi-Fi had pretty good reception, but was a little slow. This may have been because the park was so crowded due to the event.
This park should be the model for all state parks. The only reason I didn't give it a "10" is because of the location. The sites are spacious and a good distance from neighbors. They have large, mature trees and a nice lawn area. The price was much more reasonable, given the amenities, than the California State Parks we are used to. The downside is that this section of the Columbia River Gorge is pretty barren and wind-swept. If you are a windsurfer, this is the place for you. Luckily, the trees make the wind relatively tame in the park. If the rest of Washington's state parks are like this, I would love to try some more. There is no Wi-Fi and Verizon data coverage was not available in this area.
I can't imagine coming here as a destination, but if you're just passing through, as we were, this is a good stop-over. It's in in a fairly urban environment and I got the impression the neighborhood might be somewhat questionable. The staff was very friendly and efficient. They have a convenience store (with cold beer) and gas/diesel on site at fair prices. The stations I saw coming from the highway did not have diesel so this was great. This is a ways off of Highway 97, but I don't think there is a better alternative. The pull-through was level gravel and easy to pull into. The Wi-Fi worked well and the cable was clear, with many stations. The spaces are very close together and your steps pretty much come down on the neighbor's hookups. You would have no chance of putting the awning out. There are no tables or fire rings as there would not be room, and nowhere to sit outside. Just a good place to stop, rest, and then move on.
We stayed in one of the riverfront sites. They are more like rive rview though as they are across the service road. The only sites actually on the riverbank are tent-only sites. I think there may have also been two, non-hookup, RV sites along the river. The view is still nice though. As reviews on some other sites have mentioned the rules, and amount of related signage, seem a tad overbearing. There were signs threatening arrest, no noise at all after 10pm, etc.. We're quiet people and appreciate campgrounds taking care of their property, but it sort of gave me the feeling I was intruding or that they really didn't like people being there. I though it was weird that they don't want people sitting out after 10pm, yet they don't seem to enforce their dog rules. Several dogs were running around in the presence of staff and one followed me around growling. I'm a dog lover/owner, but this seemed like a far better idea to enforce. This park is very centrally located for the area. Bodega Bay and Fort Ross are both only about 30 minutes away. Our cable didn't work. That's not a huge deal, but I thought for the money it should. The hookups were in bad shape, in general. I wanted to give this park a bit higher, because of the location, but it just gave me sort of an unwelcome feeling. I may give it another try in the future. The nightly rate was for 4 adults and 2 children.
It is very possible that this Resort & Campground has been closed. We called this park a total of 5 times. We left 1 message and sent 1 email. The phone was never answered; the message and email were never returned. Therefore, I used the default rating "1".
We have stayed here a total of 3 times now. It's a great place to stay to see "Gold Country" or a great staging area to go to the Bear Valley/Lake Alpine area in the winter. It's below the snow line, so you can stay here, and take a short drive to the snow. The facilities are very nice and well kept. They even have an Emu (ostrich-like bird) the kids will like. The owner lives on site, is very concerned with making sure you are happy, and seems like a really nice guy; in general. I indicated that there are "shade sides" available, but I would say just barely. There are some sites with trees, but I don't think they will make much of a difference, and am pretty sure this place would be quite hot in the summer. The Wi-Fi might just connect at your site, but will probably only be useful at/near the clubhouse. They have propane available on-site, a small store, and firewood delivered to your site for $10 a box. Reservations on-line were easy. The $40 price was for water/electric only. When I reserved online in the past, I got a AAA discount, but when we just showed up the last time I was told I had to pay cash to get the cheaper price; so you may want to bring cash. We will be staying here again.
If you need a place to park and visit Monterey-area attractions; this works very well. The park itself is not at all scenic and near a power plant. However, you can walk to a nice beach in about 5 minutes. The spaces are like-new condition concrete and close to level. There is a minimal amount of landscaping in between sites and not much privacy. Everything is very neatly kept and the hookups are top quality. The "free" Wi-Fi is not actually free. You get one hour (starting from the time you connect). Then it's $3.95/hour. The staff was very friendly and helpful.
