We read the prior reviews and decided this is the place for us since it is just an overnight. The price is right $11 Passport America one-half price. Just off the interstate. Must be close to airport since two planes have taken off since we arrived around 4 p.m. Since then, no air traffic. As a previous poster said, there is no camp host. There was a small area that had envelops and said to put your money in the envelope and drop in slot. I could not find a slot to drop it in. A lady next door told me that the owner had passed away and the new owners were across the street at the gas station. I filled out the pertinent information, i.e., lot number, PA discount price, name and address. I put everything in the envelope and gave it to the lady at the gas station. This place is what it is - a place to spend the night. We are very pleased with it. Great satellite and Verizon air card reception. Just perfect for what we want at a low cost. It is only 30A and no sewer. We came in with empty gray and black tanks, so we have no problems whatsoever.

One of the nicer KOA's we have visited in a long time. Still, it is tired and in need of updating especially for the price (taxes included). We have not paid this much for an RV park in ages. We are no longer members of the KOA; therefore, do not receive the discount. However, we rarely stay at a KOA unless necessary. The employees were very friendly and informative. I believe this is true of all KOAs and this is probably their biggest plus. We specifically asked for a site that we could get satellite TV (but as the last one we stayed at in Little Rock, AR) we had to revert to local stations as the cable did not work and satellite did not either. All the sites are overgrown as with this one, and the trees would not allow us to receive satellite signal.

The $42.00/nightly rate includes taxes, and we are not KOA members. This KOA is OK for an overnight stay or if you come here for a purpose - as we did. The Clinton Presidential Library was our cause for a two night stay. The KOA is like most of the rest; tired looking, overgrown, lots of full-time residents, and very little maintenance. It is actually over-priced for what you get, but we knew this beforehand. The staff are very nice and helpful.

Price is $12.50/night for Escapee's members. Electric additional. Great for O/N. Always some type of activity on-gong. Spaghetti supper last night. All you could eat for $6. Cannot beat that price. Spacious spaces accommodate any size RV.

The best thing we can say about this park is the people are friendly. The rest, forget it. OK for many, just not our place of choice. Our lot was one street across from the golf course. We had four golf balls hit our MH. One of them broke out a light. The repair was at our expense. This was not reasonable to us. All our rental agent said was that we were responsible - not the people we rented from or "Happy Trails" either. Actually, we came to call it "Happy Hell" as that more accurately describes it to us. We paid $890/mo including electric for a space that was not even a covered lot. When we arrived, we had no "Welcome Package" as the rental agent said would be there plus no "greeter" as we were told would meet us. We had to ask the guard for a map and our check out date on the gate pass was incorrect. It took a week just to straighten out this mess. Will not stay here again and will not recommend it to any of our fellow travelers. The agent we had was not very knowledgeable or friendly. Bad experience all around. Many folks are very content here and we applaud them.

We stay here twice a year and have always had a good experience. PA discount is $10 total. Hard to beat for FHU/50A/Sewer/Water. We plan our trips to stay here while crossing West Texas. The sky is so clear and a perfect place to view stars without city lights (if you are into star gazing). This is a "no frills" overnight place. Nice little restaurant/gas station next to it, and that is where the check-in and office is. Good long pull-throughs close to I-10. We feel this is the ultimate O/N place for a good night's rest and safe place to stay. We have stayed here at least twice a year since 2004.

Rate reflects "Good Sam" rate. This park is a real gem in the rough. Just what we have been hoping for in the Central KY area. We come to KY once or twice a year to visit relatives. The other parks are history to us since we found this one through Internet search and "Campground Reviews Website". We were coming from the North and our GPS said to take Exit 136 from I-75. Wrong move. Use their website and take Exit 129. Otherwise, you will be driving on U.S. 25 South for six miles on a crooked two-lane road with overhanging tree limbs. Take Exit 129 (as their website states). You double back under I-75 for approx two miles. You go under the I-75 overpass. It is not marked by height. The overpass is probably 15'+ so you do not have to worry about the height. Campground is very nice and quiet. Did not use laundry or bath but checked them out. Both were impeccable. Laundry has no windows since it doubles as a tornado shelter. Upper streets are buckled - not due to poor construction - but because county made owners put them in prior to the dry spell so they could open the park. Talked to the owners and that is why I know this. We are only here for a week visiting relatives and have no affiliation with park at all. Just great to find a park close to both of our families. We plan to stay here every time we come to KY. One of the biggest pluses is that we have 50 amp, water, and sewer. Priceless. Yes, it needs more work done on it but owners are doing their best to make the park 1st class.

Pretty much a residential, locals park. Rate reflect Passport America (PA) Book, Rate of $17 for 30A. $20 for 50A. Follow directions in the PA Book. Our Garmin told us to take one exit and PA was better route. Did not double-check GPS vs. PA Book. The campground office is in a rather odd place in the back part of the park rather than up front. Was not sure if we could get around, so stopped and walked to the office. You can get around there, but not being familiar with area, chose to walk to office. After reading a previous post about this campground, I asked for a pull-through where I would be the first one to pull-out since we usually get up early. The pull throughs are very nice and long and we had no problem leveling. It is rather odd that the pull throughs can handle two RV's - but, if you are the one on the backside, you would have to wait until your neighbor pulled out before you do. This was a nice quiet place for O/N and the manager was very nice. Biggest drawback for us - low-hanging tree limbs. Seems like these parks cannot keep them trimmed back enough for a big rig.

We do not have AAA and that is the only discount available. From the other reviews, we were a bit concerned about this park. We did not have reservations and just drove by to see what it look liked since the Eisenhower Presidential Library is only three blocks away. We were pleasantly surprised. No kids. No transient workers. Only about a total of ten nice RV's in the park. Sites were very level. Great places to walk our dog and MIFI signal is great. The swimming pool appeared to be very well maintained. The only draw-back was that we asked for a site with no trees so that we could get a satellite signal. We could not get a signal due to a tree right next to us. Could have moved, but we were already set up and leveled. My husband even cut some tree branches, but it did not help. They do have cable TV for free. He connected to the cable so that we could watch TV. Recommend that if you stay here, scout it out and make sure you have satellite signal before you rent a spot - if that is on your "must have" list. I would not hesitate to stay here again. Suppose all the transient workers have moved on since it was very quiet.

Very nice RV park for sight-seeing in this vicinity. GPS and Escapee's Book have bad directions. If you come here, ask manager best way to come. Escapees price was $26.70/night. Clean and very quiet park. Every now and then you can hear a train horn in the distance, but it is not very loud - just background noise. You have to drive through some fairly narrow streets from interstate but it is doable. Would definitely stay here again.

$27 night is available for AAA only. No other discounts. We are not AAA members so do not know the discount rate. Previous comments said park was full of transient workers. This comment was made in 2010. There were about a total of ten RV's in park. No kids. No transients or permanents. We were pleasantly surprised. Good place to walk a dog and lots of nice grassy areas. Dust was not a problem. Roads were gravel. Only drawback was that I asked for a site with no trees so that we could obtain satellite service. Had a spot where we could not receive satellite signal due to tree in the way. Hooked up to cable so all was well. Would have given it a 10 but host should have known which sites could obtain cable and sites that could not.

Very nice campground owner. She has sold the park and said a nice young man bought it effective 1 Aug 2011. He has plans to improve it. GPS directions are wrong. You can turn directly into RV park at mm 298 on left side of highway 50w. We stayed here two nights. Do not expect much. You get what you pay for. Walmart close by.

Read other reviews about this place and thought it would be ok for the price listed ($18/night) just for a place to stay. The review said there were sixteen spaces available. We only saw about eight, and they were permanent occupants. Looked like they had been there for a long, long time. We did not have reservations. One of the permanents came out and told us to go to another campground as there were no more spaces here. Did not look like a bad place for overnight, but was mis-lead by other posts. I would suggest calling this place in advance before you attempt to stay there. Due to the economy and in our travels, it appears that more and more campgrounds are becoming "permanent spaces".

The rate reflected was Good Sam rate plus if you stay 6 nights, you get the 7th night free. We have a nice concrete patio and picnic table here. They used to charge more for the lots with concrete patios but they did away with the extra charge for them. Nice level gravel sites and inside roads are gravel. Great walking trail (3/4 mile) around perimeter of park. The wind does blow at this park, but they give you a handout when you check-in telling you in bold type, "do not leave your awnings out as they get a lot of wind here". Aesthetically pleasing with all the nice Russian Sage, flowers, and trees around. Some sites are already getting some shade from trees that were planted when they opened the park. This is our third time staying at this campground and we would not consider staying anywhere else in the Sante Fe area.

Rate is $14/night plus 12.5 cents per KWH. This is the Escapee's rate. Very, very clean RV park. Every Escapee's RV park we have stayed at have been very nice. Many are dated; however, the people are wonderful. Washers and dryers are only $1.00 per load for each one. Cannot beat that price. If we are in the area, we always stay at an Escapees RV Park because we know what we are getting for our money. Usually, no frills - maybe a pool, but there are usually adult activities on-going. Would definitely stay here again.

$26.25 (including tax) rate was AAA or AARP. We enjoyed staying at this park. We had absolutely no problem with noise or neighbors. Nice place and manager was very nice. Great, but costly restaurant on premise. Our site (and looks like most) were very level.

Price was $18.50/night. Do not mind paying this amount for overnight. We experienced absolutely no noise or kids running around on ATV's as one reviewer experienced. Maybe, we just lucked out. Our Verizon Mi-Fi card ran very slow. Verizon cell signal was also spotty. Would stay here again.

Price was Good Sam Rate of $36.75. Very nice person at check-in. Sites were really nice. Dog walk was just a fenced-in gravel area. Would not let my dog off leash as some folk do not pick up after their dog. Other than the high price, was a nice place.

Good Sam rate was $36.50. This is a nice place except the dumpster was about two feet from our front door. There were plenty of spaces available, but the manager chose to put us by the dumpster. Did not even think about it as we have never seen a set-up like this. Large dumpsters are usually at either end of the park not right outside of your front door. If you stay here, ask not to be put next to a dumpster.

First time we stayed in a BC Provincial Park. Very beautiful and clean park. Nice lake here also. The park was only $16, but we opted to also have Wi-Fi at $5/per day. Had to dry camp. That is OK with us for a day or two. Nice place to spend some time even though there were no pull-throughs.

OK for overnight. Park is "For Sale" so it is in decline. Only six other RV's here tonight. Still, felt safe here. It appears that, at one time, it was a very nice park. Shame to see it going downhill. Would stay here again if we needed to.

This RV park is about like the rest of the RV parks in BC and Yukon. We stayed two nights as we wanted to visit Denali and hopefully see Mt. McKinnley. The lady and her husband who manage the RV park were extremely nice and accommodating. They will also do dog walking for $10/day. This was a big plus for us as it took us from early morning to late evening to go to Denali NP and return. Would stay here again for sure. Main reason was the advantage of the dog walking service.

Found out that both BC and Yukon parks are all the same, very little to offer, yet more expensive than they need to be. Mostly, just a space to spend the night while on the way to AK. We did have a nice sign visiting the sign post forest and putting our names up there. Visitor Centers are also very nice in both territories. Just what you have to plan on paying around $32+ for almost any RV park if you plan to go to AK.

Rate reflects "Passport America" one-half price per night. We have stayed in this RV Park the last three times we have been here and always enjoy it. The owner/manager are very nice people and always try to accommodate you in any way they can. The Siletz River is right by the park plus they have a dock you can fish from. It is close enough to Lincoln City and yet still in the country so you get the country feel.

We did barely manage to get our 40' MH in the pull-through space, but we got it in there without the tow attached. Tight spaces, probably not a foot between our MH and the one next to us. Aside from that, nice RV park with nice grassy spots beside each space. The manager was very nice and helpful also. Just too much money to pull in and spend the night.

Wonderful place. Gem in the rough. Stayed three nights. Took cruise. Have a toy schnauzer and met one of the wonderful campground hosts who took her out for such a minimal charge. We felt so safe and the host loved our pup so much and checked on her so often. We would return in a minute. Prior military, so price was just right. Thanks, Gina, for taking such good care of our dog.

This is not as good as a Wal-Mart parking lot. At least Wal-Mart parking lots are not muddy and do not charge $27/night. No wonder they are not full. A real dump. Only stayed here because we drove a grueling 286 miles from Dawson Creek through rain, sleet, and snow all the way. We could not even put all of our slides out due to picnic tables being piled up on the side where our slide is. We were too tired to go in and complain so we just left the slide in and are only spending the night. The place is a mud-hole. I have to carry my pup to find a small grassy spot for her to potty. Would not recommend this place - nor recommend it to anyone. Believe me, if you can find a Wal-Mart and dry camp or a spot along side of the road, do that before you stay here and waste $27.

This park is under new ownership/management. They are wonderful people. We do not normally use the bathrooms or showers but checked them out since they are brand new. Would highly recommend this park. We had a gravel, level pull-through site. There is a nice county road behind the park that the county does not maintain anymore, but twice, while walking our pup, two different owners in the area came out and told me that it was fine to walk her around the area. It is a huge, well-kept grassy area. Everyone we have met during our stay in Dawson Creek, BC, were wonderful and helpful people. I would stay here again without hesitation. The prices in this area are rather high compared to what we are used to but considering the short season, we can understand why. Had great Wi-Fi and satellite radio reception.

We stayed here with Good Sam discount for $30.60/night (tax included). Lots of full-time residents but they are not intrusive. Close to main road to Dawson Creek (Road 97). We have excellent Wi-Fi and satellite TV connection. Gravel drive-throughs but wonderful for overnight. Will stay here again if needed. Owner is very friendly.

Discount was $35.70 with Good Sam discount. Not really worth it but not much else around. Wi-Fi worked great for about an hour, then went dead. Could not get it to work again. Would not stay here again for the price they charge. We were desperate as so many others, so we paid the price.

I gave this park a 10 because the staff was so friendly and helpful. It is good for an overnight stay. We only saw 30A service. They may have 50A but did not see any. They have many Lombardy Poplars planted, but they are trimmed back very nicely so you do not have to worry about scraping the roof of your RV. The lots are level and on gravel. This place is close to the interstate, I-90, at exit 221. It is now called "Cedars Inn Motel and RV Park". This is the first time we have stayed here and will stay again. From other RV park rates around here this is a "diamond in the rough". We did not look for a "resort type atmosphere" - simply a place to spend the night after a long day's drive. This park has all pull-throughs.

Rate was $31.75 (tax included) with Good Sam discount. Nice place, and we have stayed here before. People at front desk are very attentive. The one thing I remembered from the last time we stayed here was all the flower beds and how well they were maintained. I peeked in the laundromat to check it out. It was very clean. They had "grow lights" in there and were raising flowers for their beds. Would definitely stay here again. The only downfall is that some of the trees need to be trimmed. We had a bit of a problem avoiding branches but managed to get out OK. I am sure they trim them back each Spring before the summer season begins.

Just an overnight place to stay. Sign was rather deceptive. Bold letters stated $20/night. After we signed in, realized it was $25 for pull-through sites. Would not stay here again. No amenities. Just a place to park overnight.

Too expensive for what you get. Just a fairly good overnight place to stay. We had problems with our MH and no where to go. Thankfully, we limped into this park. Very nice owners and so helpful. Yes, we would stay here again as the owner's were so gracious to us.

As members of Escapee's, we love the Escapee's parks. They are always friendly and fairly well kept. Management very friendly and helpful. Rates are great for an overnight or couple of days stay. We paid $12/nightly plus electric. Warm here now so we did not use much electric. Someone commented that pull-throughs were not very long. We disagree and think the pull-throughs could accommodate any size rig. Cannot beat the price for a night or two.

Exit 162. This is a casino that will allow you to dry camp for two days. Pull-throughs are tight. You cannot put out your slides. Hardstand and gravel (gravel normally for truckers, but we saw motor homes and fifth wheels there). Fine in a pinch and just a place to stay and maybe get a nice meal and spend a few bucks at the casino.

This is always a good overnight campground. We stay here every other year or so. No frills, but always feel safe and comfortable. Many full-timers here. Guess they are with Haliburton or some other oil company. Lots of diesel trucks starting up early each morning. Noticed several FEMA trailers. Wondered if management knows that the sewage system for them is not set up for RV parks since they have home flush toilets. We have seen many of them in many parks and cause us much concern as they are not compatible with RV sewage systems. The FEMA trailers were to be sold by the Government for "storage units" only and not to be habitable for humans since the Katrina incident. Probably only former Government people like us know that.

PA Discount park. $17.30/nightly. Odd thing is that I gave the desk clerk a $20 bill. Did not have the extra .30 cents. Went back to MH to get change. Clerk took change and gave me back one dollar in ten cent change. Thought that was odd to begin with. Normally, I would have just told him to keep the change and charge me $18. All he should have done was just give me $.70 in change. Just a challenge from me. So odd that a RV park could not make change for a $1.00. Other that, just glad to have a place for the night as the weather was terrible. Sand storm with 70+ mile winds, then hail and snow. What a night. Just wanted a place to stop rather than a Wal-Mart Parking Lot. That is about the best thing I can say about this place. Good for an overnight, more than that, move on.

This is one place that is honestly wonderful, except all of the deer droppings throughout the park. If you do not have a dog or children, I would have given it a 10; but having a pup and trying to keep her away from all the deer and their droppings was horrible. The work-kampers are wonderful at maintaining the park; however, the owners could well invest fencing to keep the deer out especially if they want to charge $43/night. We stayed six nights and got the seventh night free and this is why our rate was $37/night. I do not know much about deer, but this is the first RV park we have stayed at that had deer droppings everywhere including the roadways in the park. Otherwise, it is one of the most most beautiful places we have stayed.

Nice, clean, well kept RV park. They do not take any RV discount cards. Several full-time people at the park but strict standards are maintained. The only down point to the park is the entrance and exit due to road construction. Had to go up two stop lights from campground, turn around in an apartment complex and backtrack for a mile or so. After the road construction is complete, it will hopefully be a better RV park.

Very friendly folks at front desk. Great place for overnight. Some lots are more level than others.

Price includes Good Sam Discount. Great place for overnight. No interstate noise at all, yet it is close to the interstate. All lots are pull-throughs.

This RV park is about six miles from I-87. The road to get here is pretty narrow and winding. It is a good place to just kick back and relax for a few days. The owners are very nice and conscientious. There are several pull-through sites that can accommodate any size rig. The biggest drawback was ant hills everywhere. You could not walk and miss one. Also, the sites are on dirt and grass. It rained while we were here so things were fairly messy but at least the weather was nice and cool. The price seemed pretty high for what you get.

Very nice and quiet park. Just needed a place to spend the night. Good Sam discount cost was $36/night for 50amp. Had great satellite reception, gravel roads and sites. Not much along this stretch of I-80, so we decided to stop for the night. It was a tad bit hard to level as the pull-through lots have a lot of slope, but we did manage using some of those orange leveling blocks. Would stay here again since there is absolutely no interstate noise plus we have 50amp service. Owners are very accommodating and helpful getting us on the lot (#60) is where we stayed.

Stayed here two nights on Passport America rate. Very nice back-in spaces. No water or sewer but we knew that going in. Very nice and quiet place to visit. Great places to walk. Would definitely stay here again. Would be nice if they had some pull-throughs for over-nighters. We parked on lot B-28 and got great satellite reception. Probably anywhere in the park with a Southern exposure would get satellite as long as the trees and limbs were not in the way. I only gave it a six because there were no water hook-ups on-site.

We stay here at least once a year. The staff is always friendly and accommodating. The park would be really great if they expanded, had individual sewer hook-ups, and some pull-through spaces. It is always a clean, neat state park with activities available. They have a wonderful evening buffet at their lodge.

Very nice campground. The only reason I gave it a six was the I-75 interstate traffic. Otherwise, I would have given it a ten. It was so loud we could not sit outside and have a normal conversation. Other than that, we enjoyed the park. Staff is very nice and informative.

We only stayed here because we needed to stop for the night and the other campgrounds in the vicinity were in worse shape - if possible. Many permanent RV's. Very hard to even tell where the roads were because of the sand. Many electric stands were knocked over and some of the water spigots did not work. Had to check them out to see if they had water before we parked.

Pricey for what you get. Good Sam rate of $31 for 30A was a bit steep but we needed a place to stop for the night. Spaces are clear of tree limbs but a little tight. Streets are gravel as are the lots. Manager was very nice. This is OK for overnight but would not pay the price again unless we were in the situation we are tonight. At least it appears to be well maintained.

This was a very good place to stay while visiting Big Bend National Park and the surrounding areas. The pull-thoughts can handle any size and Wi-Fi and satellite reception were great. The only set-back was a three "permanent" type trailers in the very back. This was the only thing that detracted from the park. At least we were not that close to them.

Probably one of the best RV Park in Texas. We liked it so well, we stayed another day. I inadvertently gave an erroneous review of Buzzard Roost yesterday. I meant to review this RV park. We did go to Buzzard Roost but the tree limbs prevented us from staying there. We saw this place on the way and returned to Broken Mill. This is one place that I would return to yearly. Not only is it a Class A RV park, the manager/owner is as nice as they come.

Arrived late without a reservation; however, one of the extremely accommodating campground hosts came out and told us to which places were available. We needed a pull-through and found a great spot. We are under some live oak trees and could not receive satellite on our motorhome but hooked up to cable. Our air card worked wonderful and we had a 3G connection. Some limbs on the Live Oaks need to be trimmed but the host told us what to watch for. We would definitely stay here again. It is a nice clean RV park.

Price includes 50amp service, tax, and "Good Sam" discount rate. Very nice long, pull-through sites. Close to the road but no road noise. Easy on-off from the Interstate. Great place to spend the night. Plenty of room between spaces. Can handle any size RV. Campground host was very nice.

The campground host was a wonderful man. He assisted us in parking our motorhome in a nice, long, shaded lot. We had shade but not the long, overgrown branches as we have found in many other parks. The place may be a bit run down but the host was extremely accommodating. Our GPS indicated that we were at the park: when we were not actually here (it was several blocks off our destination). I called the park and the campground host told me that he would pull his white golf cart out front so that when I drove by, I would see it. How many hosts would go out of their way and do that? We felt very comfortable and safe here and would definitely stay again. I would have given it a 10 but it was a bit run down. The 50amp service, water and sewer all worked just fine. No real complaints about anything.

The $25 per night is the "Escapee's RV Club" rate. Other discount rates are also available. The pull-throughs are very nice. We were treated very courteous upon check-in. For a nominal fee, a cookout was available and breakfast is also available for a very reasonable rate. The streets are paved and lots are graveled. Very well kept campground. We would stay here again. It is close to I-40 but absolutely no road noise.

We really enjoyed this RV park. The hosts were very nice and helpful. This is a great overnight place. The lots are very clean and well-kept. Not a low-rent district. We would stay here again in a hearbeat. We paid $25/night total including tax for a full hook-up, 50 Amp service with a "Good Sam Discount" only in this park. We honestly cannot say enough good things about this park.

The rate we paid was the "Passport America" one-half price rate of $18 per night plus $1 per day for electric. We had a nice long pull-through lot. The lot was on the grass but it was level. There was no road noise. The only problem we had was an overhead light that kept going off and on during the night. Our biggest complaint was the barking dogs that were allowed to be tied up outside. This campground is mostly people who live here all year; however, they do not have junk piled up as in many campgrounds. If you enjoy fishing, there is beach access with a fish cleaning area. The campground hosts were very nice and helpful. This is a nice place to escape the summer heat. If we were to stay here again, I would ask the manager why they allow dogs to be tied up and left outside to bark at each other and people who are walking their dogs. Since we were only here for two days and out most of the time, we did not mention it.

The $27.00 per night includes taxes. Although the sites are not necessarily shaded, we had two trees and were able to sit outside in the shade. The only problem we had was road noise from the highway next to us. The owners were very nice and accommodating.

We have stayed here in the summer for the last three years and always enjoy it. The river front lots are the same price as the other lots. You just have to reserve them several months up to a year in advance. The owners and their assistants help you park your rig and are always available to help you in anyway possible. We highly recommend staying here.

Exit 138 on I-90W. We saw their sign and noticed it was $20 a night plus $1.50 tax. There were no hidden charges. We stayed two nights to get us through the 4th of July. The management was very courteous and told us if we needed information or assistance to let them know. They also told us that they were having a free 4th of July Bar-B-Cue and fireworks for the folks camping here at the park. We did not have a problem getting into the park. The lots are long and level. Also, shade trees are plentiful and well spaced and do not interfere with your RV. Our overall experience was a pleasant one and we would stay here again.

Very friendly staff. Gravel sites and pull-through sites are very level. This is a Passport America campground. This campground is close to the Interstate but we ran the air conditioners so the noise level was minimal. We stayed here two nights and would stay again.

We went into the Motel/Restaurant to inquire how much we would need to pay to just dry camp overnight. To our surprise, they told us just to pull-in where the other RV's were and we could dry camp free for the night. Not much in this part of Wyoming, so we decided to just dry camp and not unhitch our tow vehicle. To show our appreciation, we decided to go in and have supper at the restaurant. It was excellent. The special was trout, potatoes, fresh cooked vegetables, salad, or clam chowder. We decided to have the daily "special" and it was marvelous. Real mashed potatoes, home-made clam chowder, and super fresh salad. If you have room, you get a free cone of ice cream. For two meals, we only paid $25 plus a tip. It is a busy place, but since the staff was so friendly, we would stay again in this remote part of Wyoming. Glad we did, as it was an adventure and like a small oasis in the desert.

Very nice managers and RV park. This is not a place to spend a week or month. Just a great Passport America RV Park for one or two days. The pull-throughts are nice and long. We have 50 Amp service. Cell service is poor but we have a computer with an AT&T air card and the service is great (especially since I am on it now). Yes, it is dusty - but for $15/night on Passport America - we cannot complain. Give it a try - we feel it is worth it. Would stay here again in a heartbeat.

This park is supposed to be a Passport America Park one-half price RV park, but when we arrived, we were informed that since they are so full that they are not accepting the Passport America rates. If they are in the Passport America Book, they should honor the rates regardless of occupancy demand. Due to the false advertising, I will not stay here again or recommend any of our Passport America Friends ot this park.

Very nice and well-kept RV park. Spaces are a bit tight for a motorhome with four slides. We found one 30 Amp site that would work for us. Best to call ahead to ensure you obtain the site you require that will handle your slides. This is a nice quiet park. It is a good location to travel from for various sights in and around the area.

This is a "Passport America" park so the rate quoted in the one-half price rate. Without the "Passport America" rate, it is $25. The resort is gated. This is why I gave it a 10 rating. It is well landscaped and picnic tables at each lot. The roads and pads are gravel. The hostess was very friendly and helpful. We are staying here three nights as it is a peaceful place and we just wanted some downtime to rest.

We read the other reviews of this RV park. Decided to go ahead and splurge and get the 50 Amp on Lot 21. Road noise from I-40 is not bad on Lots 20, 21, and 22 which are pull-through lots. Regardless of the other reviews we read, we are not at all disappointed. The hostess was very accommodating and told us if we needed anything to come to their house directly in front of the park. $17 including tax plus full-hook-up (PA discount)is not a bad deal for a park with 50 Amp service. We are very pleased. We plan to go to the Petrified Forest tomorrow and just wanted a place to stay for a couple of nights. Yes, we recommend this park and would stay here again.

We stayed here in 2005 and 2009. This resort has only gotten better with age. Laundry facilities are clean and excellent. Walking trail around park has "doggie pick up bags and stations". Excellent location and just all around beautiful. If I could rate this park a 100 rather than ten, I would do so. Even though the roads are gravel, you do have a concrete pad and picnic table. Will stay here again next year - maybe even a month as there are so many things to do and see in this area.

I gave this park a "10" because it is perfect for an overnight place to stay. We did not even have to unhitch. The lots are gravel but are kept in a very neat, orderly manner. It is easy to find and just off the interstate but not near any noise. This is a "Passport America" Park. We paid one-half price of $10.00. Would stay again.

This is a "Passport America" (PA) Park. Regular rate is $20, PA rate is $10, plus $2 for Electric, plus $2 for cable. Also, a $2 fee if you want to wash your rig. How it got into PA is unknown to us. The PA directions were wrong. I had to call to find out how to get there. Once there, we took one look and left. It is in a less than desirable part of town. I would feel safer staying at a rest stop. We took one look and left. We are not picky, but this was beyond us even feeling safe.

Very nice campground. We got "Passport America" rate of $20 for one night. We opted for a second night for $40 because we want to go to the River Walk at night time. The staff was fabulous. There are full-timers here but they were not too "trashy" looking as they are at many parks we have stayed in. The roads are paved. Pull-throughs are gravel with concrete pads. Would certainly stay here again, especially overnight with the "Passport America" rate.

Lovely, clean, quiet county park. Gates close around mid-night and reopen at 6:00 AM. We consider this one of the best RV parks we have been to. It only has 30 Amp electric service. Shiner Brewery is around two miles away. They give free tours of the brewery and free samples of their beers. I found out about the park by simply by typing in Shiner, Texas, on Google. This park will definitely be on our list as we go through Texas.

We love this park because the staff is so great. There are some sites that are hard for a big rig to get into. We usually try to stay at a space next to the bathroom because we can easily get our rig on it. The park does not have many lots for a big rig to fit into. It is a great place and I would dearly love to see the park obtain monies to upgrade it. We have eaten at the lodge and the buffet is great and always fresh and appealing. If one is lucky enough to get there on their monthly "Seafood Friday". We do not have any children but the Activity Manager always has events and outings for children. The staff has always gone above and beyond their normal duties to assist us. We are totally impressed with Blue Licks State Park.

We have stayed at this park many times since it is close to our families. We like the park but it caters to the horse people more so than the average camper. If you make a reservation on-line, there is a charge of $7.50 just to make a reservation that is not reimbursable. What a shock! We stayed there around Thanksgiving week. We checked in but were not told that the water was turned off for the winter. After we got our rig in our spot, we found out that the water was shut off. It would have been nice if we were told this at check-in rather than getting to our lot and then finding out that we had to go to a certain place to fill our fresh water tank. We will stay here again since the Lexington, Kentucky area is very limited on Recreational Parks for people to camp.

This park participates in all the local discount clubs. We thought the price was high even with the discount. Very nice and level park with pull-throughs that will accommodate any size rig. You have to park under pine trees but all in all, it was an enjoyable stay. It is in a nice quiet place but is close to I-95. You do not have a problem with road noise. The front desk employees were very nice. The park does not have the appearance of being a "low-cost housing area". Would definitely stay again.

We arrived here around dark and camped here overnight. It is not too bad a place but many permanent people in the park. Roads and spaces were very narrow for a 38' Motorhome. We did not even put the slides out. This is a 50% off Passport America Park. Would probably stay overnight again but certainly not spend any time here. As with many RV parks in the United States, this place is in dire need for upgrading.

Good Sam park. Great for one or two nights. You have to watch out for directions. Trailer Life directory said to take Exit 177. There are two exits. Take the second 177 Exit. Trailer Life did not mention this nor did our Garmin 7500 GPS.

Passport America park. Nice for one or two nights stay. We enjoyed sightseeing in the area. The couple that managed the park were very nice and helpful. We would stay there again. Train tracks ran at different times of the day and night. Tracks were probably one-half mile from campground but it did not detract us at all. We would stay at this park again for overnight or one or two days if you have not seen the sights of the Oregon Trail Ruts and parks.

Narrow and sites not level. This place was on a hill. We had no place to set our chairs outside due to sites being so narrow. This park was advertised in Military Living Camping and Outdoor Recreation Guide. We are prior military and feel this park is unrepresentative of the high military standards that we are used to. We asked why they were listed in the Military Recreation Vehicle, Camping and Outdoor Recreation Book and were told that they used to have three military trailers there. Their lodge may be OK but the sites were awful. They did give us a ten percent discount but it was not worth it. There is a nice park about 50 feet down the road that is much better and rates are about the same. I contacted the military personnel regarding this park being listed as a military park. All they did, was ask for suggestions to list other parks. Would never stay here again.

This is a new up scale recreational vehicle resort. The sites are privately owned. There are still sites available for purchase, buyer receives a deed to the site. There are weekly and monthly rates. Many restrictions on the type, year, and size of your recreational vehicle. All sites are 15 x 40 concrete with an additional 15 x 30 concrete patio. Large clubhouse with meeting rooms, exercise room, convenience store, restaurant, and swimming pool. Water, sewer, electric (50 amp service) on each site. Laundry facilities at two bath houses. Public boat launch is one mile away. There are three spring fed fishing ponds on site and future boat storage in process of being built.

Friendly people running park. Good place to stay one or two nights with Passport America. The cost using it was $22 a night for a 50 amp, pull-through with full hook-ups. We had to stay two extra days and pay the full price. We felt full price was too expensive to stay in such a dusty place but understand they have to make their money during the Summer months. The town has many interesting historical places to visit.

Nice state park campground. Can accommodate big rigs. Level gravel sites, most have shade. There is no water or sewer on the sites. We were not made aware that we needed to have a full tank of water. After we realized that fact, we had to close up and find a water spigot, fill our tanks, return to the site, and get reset.

Campground was very trashy, dirty and in decline. You have to travel 2 miles on a very dusty dirt road to get to the campground. Campground is full of fill time residents. On a positive note, the laundry room was very clean.

We could not level our 38 ft motorhome on a pull through. Campground is in decline. The office has been closed, you have to walk to the owners home to register. We paid 34.00, the site was worth 10.00.
