We needed an overnight stop between Billings, MT and Rapid City, SD. They choices were not to our liking and we found this small camp ground off Interstate 90. It is off the main highway by a mile. It is very quiet. There are three full time residents and a monthly camper at the campground. The sites are 60 feet wide by 100 feet long and can accommodate large rigs. Television signals are few, with ABC and NBC the prime viewable signals. There is a laundry facility on-site with 4 washer and dryers. The restrooms are a single room for each men and women, and they are roomy and clean. This campground has been open for 2 years according to the owner, who is very gracious. This campground is located in the vicinity of Devil's Tower, Black Hills National Forest, Black Hills Badlands, Badlands Petrified Gardens, Minute Man Missile National Historic Site, and other scenic attractions for a days touring. If we were passing by we would consider staying again at this campground.
This is our fourth time to Branson in as many years. We have stayed at Stagecoach RV Park each time. They have many discount programs. Our rate reflects a Passport American discount. Check their web site for your discount program. This has been a great campground for us to stay at while visiting Branson. When anyone asks me where to stay, this is the campground I mention. If available, they will reserve specific sites if you know the site number. I have only seen the back gravel sites used when all other sites have been full. The staff have always been friendly and pleasant, and the owner seems to be always around looking after things. Altogether a good camping experience. The pool is fully functioning. It is small in size but satisfies the wet welcome of the summer sun. It has an attached pool spa. The rest rooms are modern and clean. There is a small club house for groups of RV'ers, or just a park acquaintance place. There is a Mexican restaurant considered on premise, just next to the pool. Others have posted on the quality. We will stay here again if visiting Branson.
I would give this park a 10 if it had a swimming pool and paved pull through sites. The Staff, owners, are very amiable and accommodating. There are only a few pull through sites. They are gravel and fairly level. There is a lot to do around the vicinity of this campground, and Canton First Monday is just down the road, and other towns around the area. The campground has a fitness center, and a fenced dog park. We would stay here again if in this area.
This is a nice and easy place to stay. The Winnebago visitor center is one half mile away. The sites alternate with a short site, then longer site, then short site, and so forth. Some of the sites have trees at the very back, so placing your back wheels at the edge of the gravel site may not be possible. The electric pedestal is shared between two sites. First come can select either 50 amp, or 30 amp. Sites are also first come, first serve, and payment of $15 cash is an envelope honor system. We would stay here again if visiting the area, or Winnebago factory.
The lower section sites are gravel with typically gravel yards, and appear close together. The upper level sites are also gravel, extremely long, pull-through with two RV's side by side. All access roads in the RV park are gravel. These sites alternate directions and with the steps of the RV positioned over the patio that each site has, each RV will only be opposite each other on the far back end of the RV. So basically it is in the positioning the escorts make when they take you to your site. They do a very good job. The upper level sites have grass yards and they are as long as the pull-through, which I estimate to be one-hundred twenty plus feet in length, and fifteen to twenty yards wide. There is a very nice arrangement of trees providing shaded areas to sit under. The staff of the RV park are very pleasant to work with. There is a Freightliner shop in Clear Lake, which brought us to this area. They are also very friendly and accommodating. We did not use the facilities so we cannot comment on them. We rate this park a nine plus only because of the lack of a swimming pool.
All that has previously stated about this park as being a great place to spend some time is correct. The one thing that would make it exceptional would be a swimming pool, but even lacking that it is a wonderful campground. The staff are very helpful. This campground was re-vamped some time ago, and in doing so they extended the sites, creating a second sewer drop. So there are two sewer drops in the spaces, on near the pedestal, and one about mid-way of the RV. The water faucet was left in place and because of the extension of the site it is about 30 or more feet away from the pedestal at the front of the site. If planning on staying her make sure you have enough hose. We are anticipating visiting Mall Of America. We would stay here again if traveling through the area.
The rating of 8 is only because of the lack of common amenities. No bathrooms, no showers, no swimming pool, no meeting room, but not taking those into consideration I would rate it a 10. As other reviewers have described is accurate. The owners are wonderful people who have taken a hay field and turned it into a wonderful place to stop and spend the night, a few days, or a week. Someone has stated that it has 24 sites, that would include tent and cabin sites. There are no cabins, but there are acres of land that can be used for tenting. There are port-a-potties for tenting people. Well water is abundant and the pressure is excellent. The RV spaces are spaced evenly and they are far apart, five to a row. I counted 15 RV spots. All are full hook-up and pull through, level grass sites. We would definitely consider staying here if traveling in this area again.
Our rate reflects a Passport America discount. We have stayed at this campground before and have enjoyed it, and the close proximity to Gettysburg and the battlefields. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. We will stay here again if we visit Gettysburg.
Our rate reflects a Good Sam discount. We have stayed at this campground once before. The site then was saddle back and we straddled the valley to be level. This stay our front wheels were up-hill. I used wood ramps under the back tires to achieve a level that would not raise my rear tires off the grass. The sites were close together. We only stop here for a one night stay.
Our rate reflects an Escapee discount. It does not reflect the large tip we left at the casino in the form of loosing. This is a very nice campground. Be careful if you are following GPS. You do not want to turn into the big casino parking lot. The campground is about a mile more down the highway. This is our second time staying at this campground. It is a very nice stop over if traveling across New York.
Our rate reflects a Passport America discount, and includes our electricity for four nights. I would rate this campground higher if the sites were re-done with crushed rock or other fill. Most are overgrown with grass, but the substrate is still good. There was an incident with a new neighbor, but after words the management made the choice to assist them with a problem. Considering other prices in the Niagara Falls area, this campground is approximately 20 or so from Niagara Falls and the price is right. We would stay here again if we visit this area.
Our rate is based on a Passport America discount, which surprised us when we were looking for a campground to spend a few days in. The pull through sites can be close together, and they alternate direction so you are looking at your neighbors steps and awnings. There are a few sites that have a bigger distance between them, but they are few in numbers. All of the pull through sites are 50 amp, and all of the back-in sites are 30 amp. The back-in sites are plentiful with many having a good distance between RV's. There is a very large pool to enjoy. The staff is very friendly. This campground is off the highway and noise is not a problem. If we travel in this direction again we would stay at this campground.
Our rate reflects a holiday weekend and a Good Sam Discount. This is a very well maintained RV resort. Very family oriented, with pool hours for everyone. Adults 9-11 in the hot tub. This is a clean and well manicured resort with easy access, wide roads, wide sites that are sculptured for a picnic patio with fire rings at each site. Although a little high in price we do realize that this is a very seasonal area. The staff have all been friendly and helpful. If we return to this area we will definitely consider this a place to stop. This resort is located approximately 30 minutes from Lake Michigan beaches in Muskegon.
Mostly a permanent resident park. Very few residents visible while we were there. We were only staying one night so we did not ask for sewer. The site we went into was not level, and the wheels were coming off the ground trying to level it. The site was dirt. One site up from us in the tier was a full hook up site with a cement pad. I called the office and asked if I could change and they were most friendly and agreeable. My suggestion is to ask for a cement pad site. Other reviews of terrain are accurate. We would stop here again for overnight.
The staff of the Oasis RV Resort was extremely pleasant and helpful in all aspects. Do make sure that you apply for VIP membership and get 20% off on all items, including breakfast and dinner, which is served on-site. Breakfast is something that I am not used to. You can order as much as you want from what they serve, and there is good variety, for the one price of $5 + some change. My omelet, two slices of bacon, two pieces of toast, and a large OJ was $5 + some change. And it was good food. The rest room facilities are completely private with toilet, vanity, and shower, with triple locks on the doors. You can wash your recreational vehicles on-site, or you can pay to have it washed for you. There is also an RV Service Center for repairs, and they will come to your site. It would consume to much space to list the amenities and features of the Oasis RV Resort, so please check out their website. The price I reflect is based on staying two nights and getting the 3rd night free. Otherwise it is $20 a night. The Palo Duro Canyon is only 25 miles away, and if you can, go see the musical drama "Texas," at the Canyon. If we return this way, we will definitely stay here again.
The Rawlins KOA is an average campground in our opinion. It filled our need for a one night stop over. As usual, we find the KOA pricing steeper than other campgrounds of the same caliber. The sites are close together. Management and staff were friendly. We would stay here again as a stop over.
Overall the Wind River KOA is a very nice stopping place for a night or two. As typical with many KOA's, the price is a little steep. We also received a 10 percent KOA discount off the $47 fee. The river sites are all back in, but there is ample room between sites, and the river is about 40 yards from the back of the RV. This is a rustic setting. Management and staff were very pleasant and accommodating. There are horses belonging to the management and you could be smelling the stable at times. That, to me, was a good thing, but my wife does not agree. The campground is within easy walking distance of restaurants and shopping. We would stay here again if the opportunity affords itself.
I asked my wife what she would say about this place, and she replied, "Oh my stars!" Which is an exclamation of wonderful. As previous posters have said, this is a gem of a place. We are not sure of what is in the area, and it will be raining for the next 4 days. We have an appointment with Freightliner on Friday, and we will return here to the park for one more night. All of the staff have been very helpful, from the receptionist on the phone, to the host at the park. He brings all of the placards that you will need, to your space. He works with you for any of your needs. Pet friendly needs to be described as: an off-leash, fenced in, pet park. And it is very large. The best way to book a reservation is through the Internet. You must book 3 days in advance. It may be possible to book in a short period of time by calling the number provided on the web site. I'm thinking that the Armitage Park Campground should be a well kept secret, but to be fair to all who camp, it is a very nice place to spend a few days. The park offers more than just camping. There are picnic areas, and a boat ramp to the McKenzie River.
The Chinook RV Resort has all grass sites. The sites lining the center of the park are pull through, and the outer areas are back-in. I would classify that there are only two river-side sites. We were in site #36 and although not a river-side site, it was a spectacular view. There was a gravel roadway that separated us from the river. We toured the other CG's in the area and I would return to Chinook RV Resort. The price reflects a Passport America rate at $12.50 a night. The boat dock is indeed laid out in the camp ground and is close to being refurbished. It was being worked on every day that we were here. We stayed in a motorhome.
We were looking for a stop on our route to spend the night. Camp Tonkawa is a short distance off of US-59, and US-259. We departed the site heading to US-259, and it is a much better way to access the campground. Although the speed limit on FM-1087 is 55 miles per hour, coming from US-59 the most I would dare to achieve is 35 mph. Now for the campground. It is situated in a wooded area with the sites being gravel, dirt, and grass. The sites are near level. I did use wood blocks as a ground relief for my leveling jacks with no problem. The area was dry, and I can imagine that if it were raining, muddy foot prints would be a thing to contend with. The staff are very friendly and helpful. We stepped out the back door of the office and was given the view of the campground and basically, "Where do you want to park?" I choose a partially shaded area as the temperature was over 100 degrees. Hey, it's Texas. For anyone reading this, you have to take your children or grandchildren to this campground. There is a large heard of deer that roam the campground, and they are not afraid of humans. They are not even afraid of dogs, and we have a Husky/Chow mix, but she is well behaved. We easily walked within 20-30 feet of the deer. They are a great form of entertainment and the children will love them. We did not get to use the pool, but I understand it is nice. We will definitely keep this campground in mind when traveling in that direction. We have already decided it will be more than one night.
Rates based on Passport America discount. Reading some other reviews on this campground, on the improvements on-going, the pool is finished. The pull through sites have 70 foot cement pads and the are very level. The sites are about 25 feet wide, and most sites are tiered with railroad ties separating sites tiers. Having talked with the owners, there is a continuing trend to update this campground. My rating of 7 is only because of the gravel/cement-dust roadways. A definite plus is the on-site restaurant with breakfast buffet for $4.99 + tax. The owners, and the staff, are very friendly and helping. After riding around and looking at the other campgrounds in the area, we will most likely stay in this campground on any return trips to Branson, MO.
We only stayed here on a pass through to the Niagra area. This is a very spacious campground. There is at least 30 yards between sites and it is very well laid out. Three of the four areas are laid out in a wagon wheel with back in on the outside periphery, and pull through sites in the center. walking around, most sites were level or near level. We had an exception, and there were several. My left front tire was off the ground about 1 inch with the back leveler just touching the ground for stability. Also, some of the pull through sites are a tight curved turn, through the site. Think horseshoe, but not quite that bad. The drive through will put most big rigs at an odd angle and if the last camper moved the picnic table to close to the pad you will scratch your rig. Please don't ask me how I know, even if my dear wife did holler at me. If we were going to be here longer I would ask for another site, even a back-in. This is a casino resort , with the Casino about 1 mile from the RV park, and shuttle service is provided "on-call." The price we paid included a Good Sam member discount. The address that I found on the web page took me into the casino parking lot where, believe it or not, I asked directions. By this time my dear wife had pulled out the book and we plugged the address into our GPS. The address is 5065 State Road 365.
Little Wolf Public Beach and Campground is only a few miles from downtown Tupper Lake. The campground is owned and managed by the village of Tupper Lake. There is only 30 amp service and it is reliable. All of the sites are sand and grass. I used wooden blocks to place under the levelers because the ground is so soft. There are no television stations that were viewable over-the-air, but there were some thunder storms in the area the may have precluded that viewing. Satellite signals were good when there were no thunderheads, which is typical. This is a seasonal campground, only open from Spring through Fall. I don't know the exact months. Although it is listed as 50 sites, many are taken up by local folks and others, so expect there to be only a few open pull through sites. Reservations are highly recommended. The office personnel are friendly and helpful, as are the campers. The Adirondacks is a beautiful scenic area and well worth visiting. When coming in on Highway 3, do not rely on GPS if coming from the West. Instead, use Washington St. to get to the campground. We stayed here in a motor home.
We picked this campground as an over night stop. We were pleasantly surprised at the layout of the campground. There is a small pond and situated around the pond are parallel sites, and slanted back in sites. A little maneuvering will be necessary for the parallel sites. It appears that those sites are fairly well occupied by seasonal campers. Many of those sites are filled but there is an absence of people at this time. There are also some terraced sites but most of those are occupied also. It is an assumption that the one night stays are in the pull through area which are quite long but lacking in good solid surfacing. More crushed rock would be nice. There is lots of grass and the roads are all gravel rock (pea rock). We are very happy with our selection for the night.
The past reviewers have summed this up pretty good, but here is an update. The sites are close, but I have had much, much closer. At least I was able to put my awnings out and still had a little room left over. This is a great place to jump off to other adventures in the Gettysburg area. If you have come here to find a "destination," campground, then this is the wrong place. It is a campground to stay and venture out. You cannot go wrong with all that there is to seen in this area. The campground is one half mile from the visitor's center of the Gettysburg National Park. It is a must see, and take the self guided auto tour, as it give you your own time to spend at each of the many monuments. The Diorama at the campground is free to campers. It is a must see before you tour the area. We purchased the movie, "Gettysburg," and were glad we had taken in the Diorama before viewing the 4 hour movie. Yes, the sites are not level and it would be not much of a problem to have someone with knowledge of heavy equipment to make them level. They could also use some more crushed rock in some areas. The staff were very friendly and helpful and I had the same question about satellite asked of me for motor home placement. Very thoughtful of them. We would stay here again.
This is a very nice campground considering others that I have stayed in overnight. Although I consider the rates to be a little high, I just remember this is the East Coast and all the rates are high in most cases. Originally we were booked for four nights. I had to call and change to one night because of a change in itinerary. Everett, the owner was most gracious to talk to, both times I called. A confirmation email was sent, which we really like to have. Everett was very accommodating to get our 40 footer in a pull through site. He did, and we had room for the TOAD. The sites are crushed rock and was fairly level. This is a hilly environment, so yes, there are twists and turns to get into a site. We had a guide, and he pointed out the hazards and the areas to make wide turns. I did not have any problems negotiating the terrain. No problems with the levelers adjusting to the terrain. This is a full hook up facility with a sewer location in two places, one towards the rear, and one towards the middle. The hook-ups were easy to access. There is a "camp store," for your most urgent needs. A shopping center is just a short trip away. This is a busy community and traffic can be heavy at times. I was concerned at first with highway noise, but it either quieted down, or I was just plain tired, so be aware it is close to an interstate. We would stay here again.
Based on all of the positive aspects posted by other reviewers, we decided to give this camp ground a stay. We are so glad that we did. The hosts were very gracious, both on the phone, and in person. After being asked if we were going to set up satellite, he described the type of sites he had, cleared or treed. We choose the treed area and after a short drive around the circle we were escorted into a very nice level, gravel site, with fire pit, picnic table, and a view of an open field with other campers a hundred yards away or so. I have read where this is "not family friendly," and I believe it is because of the lack of amenities for children. If the children like nature, then this is a campground they will like. There is no swimming pool or playground equipment, but the woods are abundant with walking paths. The cable reception is excellent, as is the Wi-Fi for the site I'm in. I suppose different areas could receive different opinions. There is a laundry facility with soda machine. Also, outside of the laundry is a small freezer chest with ice bags. There is a lock-box on the wall that states, "Ice $1." That is a lot of trust for fellow campers. This is a great jumping off point for touring the many tourist areas that abound, and it is such a great place to come back to and rest. I gave it a 9, but if they were to add showers I'd bump it up to a 10, even without the pool or playground equipment. If we return to this area we would definitely stay here again. As for the drinking water, it is tasteless, and of course, wet. I'm thinking of filling up the holding tank before I leave.
We usually perceive reviews of RV parks we wish to visit as the gold standard prior to visiting each park; however, on the occasion of visiting this park, we neglected to read the reviews prior to making our reservations and were therefore skeptical of what our committed visit would be like. Several of the reviews listed uncomplimentary comments regarding the hospitality of the staff as well as the size of the sites. While it is true that the sites were smaller than we desire, they were level and easily accessible. The park was exceedingly clean, but above all, its staff was remarkably friendly and accommodating. One could not expect to have friendlier hosts and hostesses as those who attended our needs at this park. It is therefore our opinion that each traveler could be creating his or her own environment when relating to those who provide service to us. We would stay here again.
Braunig Lake RV Resort has the friendliest, most accommodating staff we ever had the pleasure of meeting during our RV travels, bar none. Besides their commitment to provide pleasurable holiday events for those of us without family, they made what could have been a lonely occasion the most fun, relaxing time we have ever had away from home. Kudos especially go to the camp hosts, two of the most delightful, helpful, and energetic persons we have met in the more than 20 RV parks we visited in 2008. Their attitudes encourage comradeship among fellow campers; therefore we befriended a number of special people during the holidays. The only negative scenarios during our 2-week visit were the few evenings when we endured cheek-by-jowl existence with our neighbors. There truly is not enough space between sites when park management is unable to allow an empty site between RV's. Pluses, however, include: town, shopping, and sightseeing are just a few minutes away; the freeways are fairly easy to access; and the park is large enough to accommodate those of us who enjoy lengthy walks. Further, the on-site pond is home to a variety of creatures with wings, gills, or shells, thus providing entertainment for all.
Price includes tax at Passport America rate. There are full hook-ups, 2 pools, 3 whirlpool spas, fitness center, computer center, free WiFi hot spots at the community center, library, mail room, wood shop, wood carving, ceramics, lapidary, silver smithing, stained glass, porcelain painting, sauna, tennis, shuffleboard, chip & putt, BBQ patio, bistro, laundry, and billiards. All the amenities one could ask for. However, you will most likely want to drive to the amenities area. Although the park advertises 1150 sites, short stays are restricted to the Southeast corner. Sites are very close together. Two sites will face each other and share the space between with each having a separate patio and plastic picnic table. An escort will guide you into the site and place your step over the patio. Always check your own clearances when an escort directs you. I had to move up 6 inches to clear the rear of the curb side slide over the utility post of the adjoining site. This is not a really pet friendly camp ground. The area to walk pets is the very end of the Southeast corner, about 6 feet wide by 80-100 feet long and all dirt. Grass is not available at this campground. There is a wonderful city run dog park 4 miles away with easy access. Two parks, one for large, and one for small dogs. Shopping is close by. I rated it just above average due to the dirt sites and close proximity to each other.
Rates are based on Passport America. We have stayed at this campground twice. The first in a 5th wheel, and the last in a motor home. The staff are very pleasant, as is the owner. The campground is well maintained as is the dog run. The map on the web site "parkonthelake" shows piers along the canals. The canals lead out past the little island to Lake Conroe. Fishing is allowed anywhere along the banks and on the piers. There is a boat ramp for guests. The pull through sites are close together and do not have shade trees. The back-in sites do have shade trees, minus one that came down in front of our car during hurricane Ike, and a few others throughout the park. It is a very relaxing environment. We will stay here again.
Rates are based on Passport America good for two nights. This is a Carefree RV Park. The park was well maintained. An escort was provided and pointed out trees and the side of the road to stay on when making turns. The dog run was attached to the laundry and was very adequate. There was good camaraderie amongst the campers, especially with the breakfast Wednesday through Sunday in the attached office "cafe." The location of the campground is very convenient to down town Austin. The pull-through sites were all gravel and near to level, gravel everywhere. Very little grass amongst the sites - but lots of gravel.A good place for an over night stay, or two. (800) 284-0206
Rate is based on Passport America. There are 134 monthly sites and 26 daily/weekly sites. It is best to have reservations as the park fills quickly. I have rated it an 8 because we don't know if we have ever stayed in a 10 and want room to improve. The staff were very helpful on the phone, and very cordial in person. The sites are very near to level, cement, and plenty of room in the pull-through for a 40 foot motor home and towed vehicle. The dog run is very large and affords puppy a great place to go to. The facilities are all in good maintenance and the grounds are clean. There is an exercise room, although a little small, but still, it is available. The pool area also has a hot tub at 103 degrees F. Trash pick-up is daily out in front of your unit - or you can take it to the dumpster on the way out of the park. We would definitely stay here again. (800) 478-7275
