The campground is convenient to the I-65. One section is right near the interstate but there is another section near the office that is further away from the interstate. It wasn't the quietest place but we've been in worse. The campground is quite large and was pretty vacant. Not many amenities but the interior roads are very wide and the sites are very long. We'd stay again if passing through.

Overall we enjoyed our stay here. We did not have a waterfront site; however, it is a short walk to the harbor docks where we viewed amazing sunsets every night. We watched dolphins, egrets, and blue herons. They have various tables and swings but we usually sat on the dock. I only saw the pool at the harbor but it looked clean. Our site, although a tight fit for our 45 foot motorhome, was fairly level and surrounded with flowers. We had no problems with noise from neighbors. They pick up trash if you leave it at the end of the driveway but one day they forgot ours even though we put it out early in the morning. Apparently, each site is individually owned so the amenities varied - some had nice furniture and fireplaces and others had simple picnic tables. Some of the pads need replacing as they are cracked and uneven. The entrance is tight and I can't imagine fitting more than two units there at the same time. Also, the interior roads are cramped but doable if you know how to handle your rig. There are biking/walking paths all over the town. We usually drove closer to town into one of the parks (it's free parking) and biked from there. We will be back!

Good park for an overnight stay. There are some long term renters, but all the sites are neat and clean. Sites are pretty spacious although we barely squeaked in with our 45' motorhome with toad. The owner is very friendly and helped us to get situated. Cable and WI-FI worked fine. There is, oddly, road noise from Bradley Cove Road. It's just a very well used road. We would stay here again.

This is a good place for an overnight stay. The RV sites are in the back of the park, so it's a trek to get there. The interior roads are in decent shape with a few overhanging trees. The sites are long yet filled with mulch that is messy when wet. There were only 3 other RV's in the park. They all appeared to be long term. It was quiet and the price is hard to beat. It is a self-service park. We would stay here again.

This park is very clean, attractive, and conveniently located just off I-40. It goes without saying that there is some traffic noise. Our site was long and level. A little on the narrow side. The interior roads are windy but in good shape. Amenities worked as they should. The staff is friendly and helpful. We paid for two nights and the second night we ended up staying in a hotel while our motorhome was in the shop. They very nicely extended our stay an extra night so we could use the night we had paid for. We would stay here again.

This is a decent enough park. The sites were short and narrow for our 40' motorhome, but we managed to squeeze in. WII-FI only worked with our extenders. It's quiet during the week and gets very busy on weekends with lots of families and children. There are tons of activities for them to enjoy. The staff was very pleasant although not very proficient with the computer system. We would probably stay here again when visiting Williamsport as it is the nicest park around. Our rate reflects Passport America.

After reading previous reviews, we expected to be wow-ed by this park; however, we weren't. It is mainly comprised of long term and/or seasonal campers. It was clean and well-kept. There are about 5 sites right up front that are pull-throughs and seemed to be assigned only to overnighters and short term campers. The interior roads are narrow as are the sites. Our site was plenty long enough, but we barely fit in the width. We had to walk in the grass to get in and out of the RV. Cable worked well, WI-FI was on and off. It is very noisy in the spots up front as you are right by a very busy road. This is the first place I have made a reservation that required a deposit of more than half the stay. The lady that made the reservation was very confused, and it took much longer than needed. When we arrived, they tried to charge us the in-season rate rather than off-season. However, this was quickly remedied when it was brought to their attention. I'm not sure if we would stay here again or not.

This is a good overnight park. The sites are a bit narrow but very long. The interior roads could use some work. They are narrow and bumpy. The owner is very friendly and helpful. I believe they only take cash or check. As mentioned before, it can be a bit noisy since it is by a highway and near Ft. Rucker. We would stay here again if passing through.

This park is fine for visiting the area; however, it is not a destination park. The front desk staff are friendly and efficient. Our site was fine for a 40' motorhome and toad. The WI-FI was iffy at our site, and we tended to use our Verizon service instead. It is in an industrial type area so there is some noise during the day. It was pretty quiet at night. If we are in the area, we would probably stay here again.

We were very happy to find this state park! The RV park options in the Richmond area are very limited. We arrived after hours for our first night. We unhooked the tow vehicle and drove around looking at spots. Make sure to check out the front and back sections. The front sections appear older and less level than the ones in the back. We found some long, wide, private pull-throughs in the back. Most sites, if not all, include a small camping area as well. The interior roads are good, and there are no obstacles such as overhanging tree branches. It is, for the most part, very quiet. There seemed to be some kind of event happening every weekend. The front desk staff is helpful and efficient. The downside is no WI-FI. Verizon worked fairly well, and we were able to get satellite. We stayed for 14 days and will most definitely be back.

This is a decent enough campground. Convenient to Hershey, Harrisburg and surrounding areas. If coming from I-81, the entrance is at the bottom of a short, steep hill, so be careful. The lady who checked us in was not very friendly. Very much to the point and issuing several warnings regarding rules. When asked if it was possible to extend our stay, she said she didn't know ... but probably not. There is only one road in and out which makes for some interesting jockeying as one of the warnings was to stay out of the grass. The sites are close together. We saw several that sagged in the middle. It is a fairly quiet park with little road noise. The WI-FI wasn't very good. If we didn't use our extenders, the WI-FI never even showed up as an option. We were able to get satellite at our site and Verizon phones worked great. It's pricey for what you get. Not sure if we would return again or not.

We stayed here overnight, just passing through, and it seemed the best option based on other reviews. We were unimpressed. The entrance was full of potholes. We requested a pull-through because we didn't want to detach the tow car. We barely, barely fit. The site was grass and so unlevel that we gave up and just left it out of whack. We were instructed to go to a turn-around at the end of the campground when we were ready to leave. The only way we could get out of our site and make the initial turn was to crossover the RV sites adjacent to us (luckily they were empty). When we got to the turnaround, it was so tight that we had to do some crazy, and dangerous, maneuvering to make it without unhooking the tow car. It is very noisy with trains and near constant traffic from the road nearby. There are many long term RV's although the sites are neat. On the upside, the WII-FI was very good, even better with our extenders. Our price is based on a Passport rate, and it is cash only. We would not stay here again.

This is a nice little park that is very convenient to all White Mountain activities. It doesn't have a lot of "character", but it is a wonderful home base for exploring the area. It is surrounded by some small mountains. The sites are all long and mostly level (we saw a few tires off the ground). There is space between the sites but no privacy due to the lack of trees. There is only 30 amp. We were here during the "off" season so the park itself was pretty vacant and quiet. There is road noise but it quiets down at night. The Wi-Fi is sketchy. We were close to the hotspot and still needed to use our Wi-Fi extenders. We came here for the hiking and didn't put a dent in the available options. There are tons of things to do around here. We would definitely stay here again. Our price reflects a weekly rate.

This park is convenient to Greenville and nearby Monson where you can access the Appalachian Trail. The lake is a big draw for boaters, and there are many ATV trails around. We were here for the hiking, and there were a lot of trails, but many of them had long, circuitous routes to get to the trailheads. Moose supposedly outnumber people; however, we only saw one, briefly, that was just wandering down the road (not at any of the "moose spotting" sites.) The grocery store in town, Indian Hill, is well stocked and reasonably priced. There were also several locals selling produce and other food items. The RV park itself is okay. The owners are very nice, informative, and busy working around the place. There are only a handful of sites large enough for big rigs. There is no sewer, and they charge extra for 50 amp. Our biggest complaints are the road noise and sketchy Wi-Fi. We were close to the source, and could only access the hotspot with Wi-Fi extenders. Our price reflects a weekly rate which is somewhat high considering it's water and 30 amp. We would stay here again but doubt that our journeys would return in this direction.

Sunset Point is a small RV park situated on Johnson Bay (a portion of the Bay of Fundy). The sites are narrow and grassy, but fairly level. To enjoy the view, we parked the MH nose in. This required running the water and electric cables under the MH so be sure to have extensions. They say they have 50 amp but apparently they don't. The Wi-Fi was erratic even with our extenders. Satellite worked fine. Our Verizon phones wanted to access Canadian signals (and the associated very expensive charges) so we turned them off. The park is convenient to many attractions including several access points to Canada. We extended our stay several times and would definitely return again.

This park is almost entirely long term, seasonal campers. It is not set up for over night use. At check-in, the lady seemed very disorganized. She said that the original pull-thru she had assigned had already been taken, and so, the owner had instructed her to give us two side by side sites. What? That was a new one on us. (We ended up using one site.) She also presented a 30-50 amp connector even though I told her we had one. She insisted we take it as it was already checked out in our name. They advertise WII-FI but it is only available at the office, and she didn't know the code. The interior roads are rough and narrow and there is only one way in and out. The water & electric are too close together so water drips onto 30-50 connector. The sewer cap was loose and would come right off pipe connected to the ground. The sites were not level and too close together. On the upside – – it is quiet at least during the week when we were there. We would not stay here again.

This campground is conveniently located to downtown Barre and for touring the area. Definitely don't miss Hope Cemetary - it is beautiful and unique. The campground interior roads are narrow and rough. You can get a big rig in there if you take your time. The sites are long and fairly level but close to each other. They are grass sites and messy when it rains. It is quiet at night. I don't know about during the day as we were gone. The lady that checked us in was pleasant enough; however, she neglected to give us codes for the Wi-Fi. Make sure and ask for them or you'll have to return to the office as they won't give them over the phone. One evening we returned from dinner with some friends. The access road is intended to be used one-way; however, no vehicles were on the road and our site was near the exit so we drove in the exit. As we were bidding good-bye to our friends, one of the owners tapped on the driver's window. My friend, who is an elderly lady, rolled down the window and the owner reprimanded her for using the exit. Mmm. Granted, we should have used the correct route, but where is the friendly customer service? This could have been handled much more gracefully by visiting us the next morning with a gentle reminder. Lastly, it's pretty expensive at $40 a night especially considering it's 30 amp service. It is unlikely that we would stay here again.

Overall, this is a nice campground for visiting the Lake Ontario area. The owners are friendly and helpful. They have a beautiful gazebo with comfy chairs by the lake where you can view some amazing sunsets. There is a boat launch. The Wi-Fi worked great with our Wi-Fi extenders. We didn't get the cable to work correctly, but we didn't ask for help either. The transient sites are near route 3 so it's noisy during the day but quiets down at night. The pull thru sites are long and wide with ample room between neighbors. They are, however, deceivingly not level. Blocks were required for us. Parts of the interior roads are a bit narrow for large RVs, and there are several potholes. Many bike riding opportunities, and neat little towns to tour. There are a large number of seasonal campers, but all the sites are well maintained. Lots of Canadians visit, too! Our rate reflects a weekly rate. We would definitely stay here again.

This campground has a lot of potential. Apparently there are new, younger owners so hopefully they'll spend the time and money to make it a destination park. The access roads are gravel and dusty. You will get dirty. Our site was very long and wide enough to give some privacy from neighbors. We assumed the site had 50 amp; however, it was 30. Luckily, the weather was cool enough that it wasn't a problem. If 50 amp is important, make sure to ask as it's only available on a few sites. There are many long term, seasonal campers but everything appeared well kept. We loved the quiet location. This is a large park with lots of room. The WII-FI needs attention. Even with our WI-FI extenders we couldn't get a reliable connection. Verizon service works fine. There are some wineries nearby and others not too far away. Lots of places to ride bikes. The countryside is beautiful! We will stay again if we pass through this area in the future.

This is a quiet, pretty park not too far from Interstate 81. The owners are very nice and helpful. And busy! They have a very well cared for RV park. Horton Road where the park is located is narrow but passable. The interior roads require some maneuvering for large RVs. Our site was long enough and reasonably wide. There is some breathing room between neighbors. Towards the back of the park there are many long term campers; however, all the sites are well maintained. They have a great driving range which we took advantage of. Our only complaint is the Wi-Fi. We couldn't get a decent connection even with our Wi-Fi extenders so we opted to use our cell phones. The rate we paid reflects a Passport rate. We would stay here again.

Decent park for a night or two. Access roads and interior roads are a little tight for large rigs, but doable. Sites are long and level (we didn't even use levelers), but rather narrow. If we had put out the large living room awning it would have been up close and personal with our neighbors. Highway is visible from the campground, but we noticed very little road noise. We did hear some trains off in the distance. Biggest complaint is the WI-FI, as others have mentioned. We opted to use our phones instead. We would stay here again if passing through.

It is always a challenge to find RV parks in Virginia, and Richmond is no exception. We chose Kosmo Village as it was closest to our family and not outrageously priced. The office is in a small concrete building. You enter into a tiny room with a doctor-office like window. The front desk personnel promptly opens the window though. They were courteous and prompt. The RV site was very long, gravel, and pretty level. The hookups worked fine. The WII-FI did not work so fine. We ordered WI-FI extenders while we we there to be able to use the connection. It is very noisy due to the proximity to Route 1and the traffic from the trailer park next door. There are no amenities other than a few picnic tables scattered around. It's not in the best part of town but not the worst either. I'm not sure if we would stay here again.

This is definitely the nicest RV park in Franklin. Lots of landscaping and everything is spotless. The camp hosts come by every morning to pick up your trash - and they are quick about it! The pool looked beautiful and inviting, although we didn't use it. They also have a pretty well stocked workout room. We were parked in one of the upper tiers. We did have a bit of trouble leveling as the site angles forward, so we had to block the front tires. There are also a lot of ants! We've experienced the same problem at other area parks so apparently ants love this town. We had spotty issues with the WI-FI but, again, the camp hosts were quick to remedy the problem. One small thing - we paid for an extra night at the normal charge, then found out the next day we had to leave due to a family emergency. We didn't ask, but thought they might credit us for that night since we had just paid. Our rate reflects a special spring weekly rate.

Overall this is a really nice state campground. It's very quiet except for the occasional weekend camper's having fun or when they empty the trash bins(strange comment but it's really loud). The sites have full hookups, are level and large. Each site (I think) has a picnic table, clothesline, fire pit and grill. The sites reserve quickly especially for the weekends. We booked for 4 days during the week then checked online each day for cancelled reservations. We always found something but we did have to move a couple of times. Hint: If you have to cancel a reservation, do it at the park to avoid fees. The springs are an easy walk. If you rent a canoe, you have to use one of the park's totes to carry it down to the water. It's a bit of a hike. The springs are very popular and noisy even during the week. So if you are expecting a quiet, relaxing ride down the river (as we were) you'll be disappointed. We would definitely stay here again.

This campground has some nice and not so nice features. The main roads are wide but there are lots of overhanging tree limbs, and we snagged quite a few of them. The roads in the actual campground are okay but on the narrow side. Again, lots of overhanging tree limbs. We were in site 279 and it wasn't close to level. Took us several attempts and blocking the front tires to even things out. Unfortunately for us, there was a Nor'easter passing through and we had torrential rain and wind for three days. The sites are not paved so it was pretty messy. The sites do offer a fair amount of privacy with lots of vegetation. There is easy access to the beach, hiking and biking. The beach isn't the prettiest one I've ever seen but it was close by. Overall, it was very quiet with a few overhead helicopters during the day. I'm not sure if we would stay here again or not.

This RV park is pretty with lots of palm trees and landscaping. The Wi-Fi is exceptional for an RV park. The beach is across the street from the park. It is a very busy highway. There are much more scenic beaches further west. This one is rather narrow and had a lot of seaweed. The two main faults we have are the traffic noise and the tightness of the interior roads and sites. We narrowly missed taking out some small bushes trying to turn into the site. We had to maneuver our 40 foot motorhome several times to get it situated so that all the slides would extend without hitting a tree. We thought we were done but discovered that the tow vehicle wouldn't fit anywhere. We had to move the motorhome as far back as possible and then park the tow vehicle sideways in front. It was still barely out of the road. Later as I read the brochure, there was one line indicating that you should move your RV as far back as possible. They should emphasize this when you check in! We actually witnessed a long fifth wheel run into the front of a motorhome that was jutting slightly out into the interior road. The damages were fairly small but the point is that the roads and sites are extremely tight for larger rigs. I think they are well overpriced.

This state park is at the end of the peninsula situated between the bay and the gulf. It is one of the most beautiful state parks we've ever stayed in. We camped in the Shady Pines loop. There is enough room between sites to offer some privacy. As the name suggests, there are lots of pines and other vegetation. And lots of no-see-ums mostly in the evening. A little bug spray took care of that problem. We also encountered several of the beach mice/rats. Hopefully we didn't carry any of them with us when we left. We were parked just near the beach access which was really convenient. You can't see the beach from the RV sites due to the high dunes. It is such a serene and quiet beach. Very uncrowded. We would consider staying here again in cooler weather. With 30 amp we could only run one A/C and it got pretty hot. I do caution large RVs as far as the roads. They are very narrow with lots of trees and, unfortunately, vehicles jutting out of some sites. I had to guide my husband through several twists and turns. The hardest part was parking the motorhome as we had to maneuver to avoid trees. We also blocked other vehicles from passing until we were situated because there is no room to pull over. The park ranger even questioned whether we would be able to get into the site. But we did! BTW all the park rangers were very friendly and helpful.

Overall this is a pretty decent park. It backs up to Rocky Bayou (go figure!) with easy access. Lots of tent campers and families. Some sites are paved, some are not. Our concrete back-in was pretty level. The interior roads are a bit narrow but we easily navigated them in our 40 foot rig. Keep a close eye out for the entry sign to the campground - we passed it the first time partly due to the fact that our GPS was taking us further down the road. Nights are quiet except on weekends when the revelry kicks up a notch. Just people having fun, nothing terribly intrusive. During the day it was not unusual to hear low-flying planes and booms from the ordnance disposal site just down the street. Very friendly and helpful staff. BTW (By the way) - if you are using this campground as a base to explore the Destin area, the mid-bay bridge charges a $3.00 toll each way. They want to pay that off in a hurry!

Definitely big rig friendly, as other reviewers have noted. Nice wide roads and sites with long, wide concrete pads. Plenty of space between sites as well. Maybe it's just where we were located, but the Wi-Fi kept "going away". Usually, we just had to reconnect but sometimes we couldn't. Never got our cable TV to work -- and never reported it, so our bad. We were in the back near the long-term residents. Too may barking dogs, kids on bikes and screaming parents for our comfort level. There is road noise from the interstate that is only muffled when the wind is up - which it was - a lot (Texas, not the park's fault). Gets no marks for beauty - no trees or any plants in sight. It's a decent enough park for a night or two.

This RV park is fine for an overnight stay. The woman that checked us in was very friendly and efficient. The pull thru sites are long enough but pretty close together. The park doesn't get high marks for beauty ,but it's clean. There were some long term residents but the appearance seemed neat enough. There is the almost constant noise of trains. Unfortunately, that kept us up most of the night. One warning - follow the signs to the enter from the back of the park. The road to the front entrance is blocked but you can't see it from the main road. There is no where to turn around. Our nightly rate is for 50 amp service. We probably will not stay here again just because of the trains.

This is a really nice state park ... and very active! We found out that spring and fall are their busy seasons due to the beautiful weather. It was cool at night and comfortable during the day. The roads and sites are all paved. Our site, 46 in the Red Tail Hawk Loop, was mostly level. Lots of space between the sites which we like. Hookups were easily accessible. We were worried about noise as we were backed up to the road but it was very quiet. Lots of places to hike and bike and several fishing lakes. Cottonwood is close by and has plenty of shopping options. We would stay here again.

We love this campground and return year after year! Our rate reflects a weekly Good Sam rate for a waterfront site that has water and electric. We always choose to stay on the river, if spots are available. The sites are long and spacious and many have tree coverage. Other sites have limited tree coverage for those desiring satellite coverage. There is nothing better than waking up to the beauty of a river and mountains for a background. The bathrooms and laundry are spotless. The owners are delightful people and are full of information regarding the area. They willingly arrange dining, horseback, whitewater, and river cruise reservations. If you are looking for a peaceful campsite to relax and rejuvenate, this campground offers that and more.

This campground meanders through a very large stand of mature Ponderous pines. The elevation is 7800'. Near busy route 67 but noise was minimal and overall it was very quiet and peaceful. We visited during the week so the park was pretty empty. Apparently the weekends are quite active as all reserved spots were spoken for. We had one of the two paved sites which are very long. The rest of the sites are gravel. Leveling was a bit of a challenge but our automatic levelers won the battle. There are no hookups but water spigots are located throughout the campground. Vault toilets but no showers. Our Verizon internet worked in certain spots so we were able to get online. We didn't try our satellite but doubtful it would have worked with all the trees. The campground is across the road from the Centennial Trail which is a 15 mile round trip hiking/biking trail. Beware - the route towards Woodland Park is uphill (mostly gradual) so the return is well-earned reward. Our rate reflects the National Park Senior discount which is 50% off the normal rate of $17.00. We would stay again.

Our rate reflects a week with a Passport discount: 50% off Sunday-Thursday and 10% Friday-Saturday. We made a last minute reservation and lucked out with a premium tiered spot. The nice thing is that these gravel sites are end to end, rather than side to side (with great spacing) so you aren't looking into your neighbor's windows. One side is a treed hill and the other is a gravel patio area overlooking the tent sites. Nice fire pit but unable to use it due to a fire ban. For the most part, very quiet. It was a little noisy on the weekend as the park filled up with families. Wi-Fi worked pretty good although it checked out every now and then. We were able to get 1X on our Verizon cell phone but it was a weak connection and fairly useless. The water pressure was low and we often had to use our water pump. Large trash bins but make sure you've done your workout first: the lids are extremely heavy! We would stay again.

This park is a few blocks from the main part of town. If coming from the west on Rte 50, as we were, it is easy to miss the left hand turn that leads to the park. There is a sign on the right that says the park is 3/4 mile which we thought meant further down the road. Actually, you should turn at the next stoplight. Being off the beaten track, this is a quiet park. Very nice that you are able to wash your rig, car, toy, etc for $10.00 including the power washer. Utilities worked fine. Wi-FI kicked us off on a frequent basis, but generally you could log right back in. Many monthly renters, but all sites appear well kept. Pull throughs would be tight if the park was full. Easy ride to Crested Butte which is a friendly, laid-back town with lots of hiking and biking trails. Convenient to the Blue Mesa reservoir. Major dings are the high rate and the intermittent Wi-FI. We would stay here again.

This is a nice, clean, well-cared for RV park. The sites are long and level. The side that shares the utilities is a bit close to your neighbor; however, there is a large grassy area on the other side. Utilities worked fine and Wi-FI was fairly stable. Verizon phones had great reception. Some road noise as they are by a busy highway but it wasn't too distracting. The workampers were friendly and efficient. Many monthly renters, mostly escaping from the Arizona and Texas heat; however, all sites are well maintained. Generally an adult park, which we like. Close to Montrose, Telluride, and Ouray. Lots of places to take your jeep. Our rate reflects a Passport America discount, valid for 3 nights. We would stay again.

As mentioned in previous reviews, the check-in was friendly, quick and efficient. There are many sites in the back that are not visible from the street which is where we stayed. The sites are loose gravel and fairly level though not very wide. There are trees around most sites. The campground was not crowded, and we were spaced sufficiently far from others to allow some privacy. The utilities worked fine. The Wi-Fi was just okay - good one minute, gone the next. Our Verizon service worked great. Nothing necessarily wrong with this park, just nothing special. There are trains running but it wasn't too intrusive. Our rate reflects full hook-ups with a Good Sam discount, which is pricey in my opinion.

The positives: Quick, efficient check-in; Satellite worked great; Utilities fine; WII-FI fairly decent; Level, long site; Convenient to Walmart. The negatives: Lots of traffic noise all night long; Site was narrow for our motorhome. In order to miss a tree pulling in we had to maneuver close to the utilities. This prevented us from opening our LR slide as it would bump up against another tree. Our neighbor with a long fifth wheel narrowly missed snagging our side view mirror as he departed due to the tight sites. If passing through, we would stay again but not for an extended period. Our rate reflects a Good Sam discount.

As far as we are concerned this is the perfect campground. A beautiful location right on the Salmon river. Dark, quiet nights where you can hear the river rushing by. A road is nearby but noise is not a factor. Large, wide, level sites with excellent utilities. WII-FI is available on-site. The bathrooms and showers are spotless. The campground owners and hosts are the friendliest group of people you are likely to meet. They go out of their way to ensure your stay is as enjoyable as it can possibly be. Almost any outdoor adventure is available - horseback riding, fishing, whitewater rafting. The Friday night potluck gatherings and nightly cocktail hour are lots of fun where we met many interesting travelers especially a fun-loving couple from Canada. The on-site store has some very unique items I've never found anywhere else. Our rate reflects a weekly Good Sam discount in a riverfront site. There is no sewer in the river sites but a dump is nearby. We most definitely will return here again and again.

This small RV park is also a motel and has cabins for rent. The park itself is neat and clean. The sites are grass, level, and very long. Nice spacing between sites with trees. As mentioned in a previous review, the grass is as manicured as a golf green. WII-FI was good as was our Verizon phone. The interior roads are a bit tight, and we snagged a few trees with our 40 foot rig. The park was not busy, and the few other RV's appeared to be long term. The motel was full with seasonal workers. The biggest negative was the noise. The park is right by a busy highway and equally busy railroad. Very small "town" with a couple casinos, local store, and a thriving roadside restaurant operated from a food cart. Lots of fishing available. Our rate reflects a passport discount which we used for all 3 nights of our stay. We might stay again for an overnight if passing through.

Overall a very well maintained park. Our rate reflects a special - stay 7 nights get the 8th night free. Summer rates are high! Passport America rate not honored at this time. FYI- it was rainy and overcast our entire stay which is apparently normal this time of year (just so you know!). The sites and interior roads are gravel and level. Nice long sites though not especially wide. Our neighbor's picnic table was right under our LR slide - and they had 4 rambunctious boys. All utilities and WI-FI were excellent. Front desk staff very pleasant and accommodating. Main downside is the traffic/train noise, although it quiets down a bit at night. The bathrooms were clean; however, it's one large room with two toilets and three showers so not a lot of privacy. Great location for exploring Glacier National Park, Whitefish, and Kalispell. We would stay here again.

I want this place to remain a secret so I hesitate to offer too much praise; however, we absolutely loved this park! When we visited, it was rainy and cold. Not crowded so it was especially quiet (important to us). The location is drop-dead gorgeous. In a valley surrounded by snow covered mountains (in June). An easy 30 minute drive to West Yellowstone. There are tons of places to explore, in a Jeep anyway. We rode our bikes around the lake. Several hikes are within easy access. The Wi-Fi worked great. One small caveat: they asked that you disconnect when not using it. Our Verizon service was erratic but it was a good excuse not to use the phone. The sites are a bit close but we only had a neighbor for a couple of nights. Several reviewers commented on noise from ATV's. May be due to the time of year, but we didn't see/hear any. The staff was very friendly and even stepped out of the office to wave as we left the park. The price is a bit steep but well worth it if you value beautiful surroundings and the sound of silence (at least in June!)

As previous reviews have stated, the owners couldn't be more friendly and helpful. The park itself is clean and well-kept. There are lots of DVDs to watch and books to trade. Wi-Fi is fine - a definite bonus! It's a small park and the sites are too close for our comfort. Unfortunately, the area had been having lots of rain so our motorhome made some distinct ruts in the gravel site. The owner was nice enough to point out some potholes in the exit route which hadn't been fixed yet due to all the rain. The park is sandwiched between the interstate and a railroad track. Our site was on the interstate side so we heard our share of traffic. And the trains made themselves known throughout the night. Not a quiet park, by any means, but a definite bargain for a night or two.

A very nice surprise! The staff was friendly and helpful. Our site, though grass, was long, wide and fairly level. (All the sites are 100 x 50.) Our site was towards the back of the park. The Wi-Fi worked fine. Verizon cell reception was erratic (at least inside the RV). Satellite worked great. The best part: it is sooo quiet. The entrance is a bit tricky to find, and we passed it the first time. It is the dirt road between the entrance to Fort Bridger and the small gas/convenience store. There are lots of extended stay, seasonal construction workers, however all the sites are well maintained. Be sure to make a reservation as they only have a few sites available for over nighters. Also, they only accept cash or check. We would stay again.

In general, a fine park for an overnight stay although a bit high for what you get ($20 for site, $7 for daily park fee). Electric is the only utility available at the site. There is a dump site and water available. No Wi-Fi but our Verizon signal was very good. No cable TV but our satellite signal was strong. The sites are long, wide and level (gravel). The park was pretty empty so we picked our own spot. There are pull-through and back-in sites. Some road noise from highway 40. No need to fear for safety, the park rangers seem to make their rounds every half hour. Appears to be a well-used park by locals for weekend outings. We would stay here again if passing through. Compared to the prices of the RV parks in Steamboat Springs, this is a steal.

As far as we are concerned, this is the best park in Buena Vista. The owners are so friendly and helpful. As previously stated, the store is fairly well stocked and has some unique items for sale. The campground is very clean and inviting. The sites are long and wide. We stayed in site 33 which is a paved back-in. Each site is provided with leveler pads, which we've never experienced. Nice picnic tables and fire pits are provided. The Wi-Fi was spot on, never so much as a blip. The utilities worked perfectly. Such a convenient spot to enjoy all the activities available in the area: hiking, mountain and road biking, 4-wheeling, rafting, sight-seeing! Also an easy drive to Aspen and other surrounding towns. The only negative is the traffic noise from 24. We visited during the off-season so it was fairly minimal. We're pretty sensitive to noise so it may not bother other people! Our price reflects an off-season internet special. We would definitely stay here again.

The positive: Has beautiful surroundings, very quiet, site fairly level and long though not necessarily wide, hookups fine, lots of wildlife (pronghorns wandered right near the motorhome), friendly staff, lots of stars at night. The negative: A 2 mile dirt road so you will get dusty (although it's well packed and better than some paved roads we've been on; absolutely fine if you drive slow); CG itself is dirt and gravel; no Wi-Fi at site but you can drive to it (our Verizon cell strength was very strong so we could connect to the internet through that service). Note: This CG is designed around a shooting range not as a resort. Not much to do other than shoot guns and visit the museum and gift shop. Nice place to unwind. We would stay here again. Oh: ask to drive through the road that is gated by the entrance. Has no speed bumps or overhang.

Overall, a very nice, clean RV park. Gorgeous views looking south over the Kiowa grasslands and other nearby mountain ranges (some still had snow). The Wi-Fi was spot on. We had no restrictions at all as to what websites we visited. We pretty much had the park to ourselves so that may explain the lack of issues with internet access. Staff extremely friendly and helpful. The access road coming from the north is a bit confusing but is clearly marked as exit 460. The weigh station is the same exit; however, it veers left while the road to the park veers right. Lots of signs to keep you on track. The main issue is the traffic noise from I-25. Also, the sites are situated in a circle with several sites in the middle so if the park was full it would probably feel a bit crowded. We left earlier than anticipated only because the wind was so severe at the pass. No fault of the CG but we kept half our slides pulled in to avoid damaging the awnings. We would stay here again at least for a night or two.

Not too much good to say about this RV park. Roads narrow with lots of potholes. We maneuvered our 40 foot motor home between a 5th wheel partly parked in the road, a truck, and trees. The "guide" was on break. Thank goodness for walkie-talkies! Many extended stay (although to be fair, they seemed to be neat). Constant freeway noise and as a bonus barking dogs. The Wi-Fi was literally useless. We never were able to connect. The site, although narrow, was gravel and fairly level. We would not return.

The good : Nice long, wide, level concrete sites. Very easy to maneuver. Bathrooms individual and clean (although a bit odd as the shower and sink were new but the rest was rather old). Good rate for a night. Staff very friendly. The bad: Road into the park is very uneven. Cable was fuzzy. Water pressure low to the point we had no water in the kitchen sink. Wi-Fi iffy at best. We used our Verizon phone for internet access. Near constant noise from the interstate. And, not that they have any control over this ... extremely windy. We pulled in both driver side slides for fear the awnings would tear. We probably would not return.

By far, one of the best RV parks we've stayed in. Long, level sites (we were in 52). Electric, water, and cable TV was great. WiFi very rarely faltered. The park was sparsely populated during our stay so that may account for the good WiFi. The toilets and showers were in individual rooms and spotlessly clean. Quite a few extended stays; however, all the sites were neat and orderly. We didn't hear any traffic noise. Close to downtown and wineries. Staff was very pleasant and accommodating. Definitely recommend this park and would return again. We stayed 4 nights.

Very nice, well tended and quiet RV park. We stayed in a back-in that was over 90 feet long. Plenty of room for our 40' motorhome and 4 slides. Even though we were near the street (site 80) we rarely heard any road noise. Just the occasional horn on trains. The Wi-Fi was generally dependable although it drifted off every now and then. Pretty normal for Tengo Internet. We had a horde of ants at our site but we reported it to the front desk and someone came and sprinkled pest control. Pool and hot tub looked very clean and inviting. Neighborhood is a bit "colorful" but not scary by any means. The Super Wal-Mart at Military and Roosevelt is one of the nicest I've seen. If you like Mexican food, visit the Rosariossa restaurant - best salsa ever and interesting and tasty food. As far as downtown, we drove our car or biked. If you park a couple blocks from downtown on the street it's free. The only problem with biking is there are no bike racks. And apparently there is quite a penchant for stealing them. The only reason I didn't give this park a 10 is because the front desk personnel had a tendency to be a bit rude. The nightly rate of $28 was a special advertised on their website. We would definitely stay here again.

Overall a decent park for an overnight. One caution - use blocks under the levelers. We didn't use blocks at first and the back levelers sunk into the pavement about 5 inches. Ouch. It would be helpful if they mentioned using blocks during check in as it has apparently been a problem before. There appeared to be many extended stay renters; however, the sites were all well maintained. The owners are very pleasant. The roads were a bit narrow for our 40 foot motorhome but not difficult to maneuver (we stayed in the way back section). The Wi-Fi was up and down - a norm for Tengo Internet connections but exasperating. We must have good ears because we did hear traffic noise all night - not overly loud but continuous background noise. We would stay here again if passing through.

As others have mentioned, easy access from I-12 but far enough away that there is no traffic noise from the interstate. The staff is friendly and accommodating. The park is very clean and well-maintained. There are quite a few long term residents that contributed to some early morning activity. However, all the sites are very neat. The main reason for a lower score is the Tengo Internet. The internet is up and down constantly. Slow, then fast, then nothing all in a matter of minutes. I suspect it is due to, and I quote, "bandwidth shaping technology to govern your connection speed." In two years of traveling, we have yet to have a good experience with Tengo Internet. And now, I step off my soapbox.

This is a nice, very clean RV park. It is family owned by a husband and wife. They take great pride in keeping up the appearance of the RV park. Every holiday, decorations are in abundance! They do have Wi-Fi but it appears you have to sit in or very near the office to get access. The sites are back-in, and the owner is very helpful in assisting you. There are some extended stay but the owners make sure they keep everything orderly. They also have some cabins for rent. The only down side is the park is right by 64 West and the traffic noise can be pretty loud. We camp here fairly often as it is near our home and we use it while we are loading up our RV.

This appears to be a nice, clean, family friendly park. Lots of kids, dogs and campfires. Wi-Fi was fine and satellite reception decent. There was some noise from nearby campers (most notably a very loud boom box car at 3:00 AM) but in general pretty quiet. We had a back in spot as it was the only 50 amp site available. We would stay again for an overnight.

This is an attractive RV park with lots of trees. The Wi-Fi is reliable which is unusual because we normally have problems with TengoInternet. Satellite didn't work but we could get local channels through the antenna. The sites are long and level gravel although not much space between sites. Our neighbors "party pit" was right outside the bedroom window, and they were still entertaining at 11:00pm. For some reason, they bunched all the RVs into the same area rather than spreading them out in the near empty park. Camp fires were in abundance and our neighbor's smoldered all night long. Unfortunately, the wind blew it right in our direction so by morning the interior of our coach smelled like smoke. There is road noise from I-74 and train whistles from nearby tracks. As previously stated in other reviews, the owners were efficient but would not win any awards for friendliness. The park is fine for an overnight. We would stay again.

Overall one of the nicer RV park. We stayed here last year and were very satisfied. This year they put is in the older, extended stay area. The sites are much smaller, and our 40 foot motorhome barely fit. Our site was very unlevel and cracked. We barely managed to get the motorhome level by crossing all our fingers and toes. We asked to be moved, but management said they couldn't do it. We were there for 10 days and saw many opportunities when we could have moved over to the newer area. Even though we asked several times to be moved, our request was not granted. Otherwise, this is a very clean and well maintained park. The WI-FI works great. You can walk to the Evergreen museum which also has a very nice paved pedestrian/bicycle path. Of course, it is very convenient to a myriad of wineries and downtown Portland. There is road noise from Three Mile Lane no matter where you are parked. We would stay again.

By far one of the best parks we've stayed in. It is a bit off the beaten path (about 5 miles from I-35) but more than worth it. Very quiet and peaceful. (We did hear one train about 10 pm, but that was it). The gravel sites are level and the longest we've ever experienced. (We stayed in the upper section). Enough room for at least two cars, which is allowed. The site did have a side by side hookup but as the park was fairly empty we didn't have a neighbor. WI-FI was spot on, not a single blip. Satellite and antenna reception was perfect. The owner was also very friendly. There was no pool but there was a nice recreation area as it is near the lake. Very bike friendly, too. Downtown Clear Lake is a beautiful area to walk around. We would definitely stay again.

This RV park is in a beautiful setting right on the Missouri river. If fishing is your thing, it's perfect. It is away from the highway and one of the quietest parks we've stayed in. There is either an agreement with the resort next door (really seems like a regular hotel) or the resort owns the campground. You have full access to the resort's pool, spa and any other amenities. The WI-FI is only available right outside the office or in the business center at the resort. The gravel sites are the only pull through's but they are not level. We were first assigned to a gravel spot but could not come close to level. As the park was almost empty, they let us pick wherever we wanted to stay. We settled on a concrete pad that worked fine. Also, drive very slowly and carefully because there are potholes and broken pavement. We would stay again.

This is a fairly spartan but nice RV park. The sites are gravel, large and reasonably level. They guide you to your site and help with parking. The camp owners are very friendly and helpful. The noise level is acceptable - mainly people arriving or leaving with RVs. And some noise from the neighborhood of double wides behind the park. They are about 30 miles from Devil's Tower and 60 miles from Mount Rushmore. Definitely quieter and less expensive than any park near Mount Rushmore. The main downside is the WI-FI, if that is important to you. It's very intermittent, and we were parked right in front of the hotspot. We would stay again.

We saw this park a bit differently than some of the other reviewers. It's in a rather rundown part of town - except for the new Cabela's nearby. And very noisy - unless you are accustomed to the near continuous whistles of trains, and planes taking off and landing. The gentleman that checked us in was very short and curt. He wasted no time, or words, getting the paperwork signed and getting me out of there. He issued several stern warnings not to center our levelers over the winter water connections. I think I interrupted his football game or something as it was Sunday! The site we were assigned was small for our 40 foot motorhome and leveling was a challenge. The back wheels were in gravel and the front wheels were on pavement. The site overlooked a trashy trailer park. The park uses the dreaded TengoInternet for wireless. The coupon issued is only good for 12 hours from the time you log on. The only nice thing I can say is that the park was clean. And, to me, expensive for the few amenities it has.

Overall, this is a nice RV park. The entrance is a bit sketchy but once you enter the park it's okay. BTW - you might want to park your RV on the side road until checked in because most sites are across the street from the office. The owner is very friendly and provided lots of information. The sites are basically dirt but are fairly level, long and wide. The Wi-Fi reception is almost perfect. The bathrooms are basic but clean. Convenient to lots of hiking, biking and scenic drives in the Wasatch National Forest as well as easy access to Bear Lake. Also about 50 miles from Logan, Utah. Due to staying here in the off season, we pretty much had the place to ourselves so it was quiet except for the road noise from Highway 89. We would stay again.

The positives: Friendly staff; 4 miles from downtown Ketchum; Easy access to all sorts of activities, hiking, biking, golf, water activities, scenic drives. The location cannot be beat as far as proximity to Ketchum and Sun Valley. Sites are long although not very wide - about 20 feet wide. Luckily we only had a neighbor on one side. Wi-Fi was pretty reliable. The negatives: Lots of road noise from Hwy 75 and it is near constant. If you want amenities, you won't find it here. Not the most beautiful RV park but definitely worthy for exploring the area. We would stay again.

Overall a very nice RV park located in a respectable residential neighborhood. Lots of shopping nearby if you are low on supplies. Only about 10 easy miles from downtown Boise. Access to the Boise River Greenbelt is 4 miles - a 25 mile long mile paved path for biking or pedestrian use. The staff is very friendly and helpful. They do guide you to your site and assist with parking. There are quite a few long-term tenants but the park is very well maintained. The main downside is they use TengoInternet for the internet connection. We always have problems with this service connecting to the internet and having a reliable connection. Also, there is some road noise from Horseshoe Bend Road. We would stay again.

The park is in the industrial section of town; however, it's remarkably close to the "nice" areas of downtown, about 6 blocks. The Humane Society is right between the two sections of the park although oddly enough the noise level was very minimal. We stayed on the east side and did experience some normal traffic noise from route 12. The RV site was level and long however it was a tight squeeze width-wise for our motorhome. We could only partially open the storage doors on the utility side. The Wi-Fi was on and off. The last day and a half our laptops couldn't even detect the Wi-Fi network. There were people working on the landscaping while we here so the new owners appear to be upgrading the appearance. We would stay again.

Very quiet and peaceful. A wonderful place to relax and unwind. Sites are spacious (we are 40 feet), fairly level and shady. An escort guides you to your site and helps maneuver into it. North entrance to Crater Lake National Park is about 5 miles. The Wi-Fi is unreliable, and the staff is a bit touchy about complaints in regards to this. We couldn't get satellite reception at our location. Our Alltel cell phone worked in various sections around the park but not in the motorhome. So if you are technology dependent, this is not the place to be! We would definitely come back again.

This park has a beautiful setting right on the Umpqua river. Many sites back up to the river so if the windows are open you can enjoy the sound of the rushing waters. The camp hosts are very friendly and helpful. Also Brandborg winery is right in town! There are no showers, one bathroom and one washer/dryer. The RV site was tight for our 40 foot motorhome. Our last night a fifth wheel was parked next to us. Their awning was almost touching our motorhome and it wasn't fully extended. It was very quiet until the park started filling up for the weekend. Then it was quite noisy during the day (dogs, kids, etc); however, it quieted down in the evening. Overall one of our favorite parks and we will camp here again.

Positives: Front desk staff friendly and helpful. Overall appears well-taken care of. RV sites fairly level on gravel. Railroad right in front but we never saw/heard a train. Silverton is a lovely little town. About 15 miles from Silver Falls park. Negatives: Right by busy road and noisy heavy machinery business (which we were parked right next to). Gravel roads very dusty and uneven. Exit route is over large speed bumps and a rather long, dusty route to get to the main road. Wi-Fi was very inconsistent. Our site (#45) had a large broken concrete hole that we had to maneuver around to get situated. We do not plan on staying here again.

Quiet, well-maintained park. Front desk staff was very friendly and helpful. Sites paved and mostly level. Must unhook your tow vehicle before parking RV. Lots of shopping in the area if you need to stock up. Blackberries on the property that you are free to pick in season. Have rules that are adhered to: only dogs under 40 pounds and must be restrained. If you want to stay long term, they will contact previous campgrounds to assure you haven't been a problem and RV must be less than 10 years old. Definitely keeps the park enjoyable for everyone. Only downsides: WiFi unreliable due to all the trees. The dumpsters get pretty full. A bit pricey but it is a nice campground. We would definitely return.

This is the best campground we've ever stayed in. Very quiet, clean park with wonderful camp hosts. The camp hosts are very friendly and knowledgeable about Mt Rainier and the surrounding area. Only 1/2 a mile from the park entrance. All of the RV sites are tree covered, pretty level (dirt) and well maintained. No paved roads so your coach will get dirty! At the entrance is a short, narrow bridge which might make some drivers uncomfortable but we crossed over in a 40 foot motorhome. The sites are a bit tight due to all the trees but the camp host easily guided us into our spot. No cell coverage and WiFi is only available right outside the office. We would definitely return.

Overall, this is a nice quiet campground very suitable for adults and convenient to Glacier and Whitefish. The spots are a bit tight for large RVs (ours is 40 foot with 4 slides). We couldn't put out the awning, and the slides touched tree branches on one side. The campground is on Highway 2 but the noise is surprisingly negligible. You will hear the trains blow their whistles occasionally!. There is a path down to the river where you can fish (with a license of course). The Wi-Fi is sketchy. We were 3 spaces away from the hotspot and the connection would come and go. Many times we couldn't see the network at all. The staff is accommodating. We originally intended to stay 3 days and ended up staying 10 days. We had to move one time. One minor issue is they wouldn't give us the weekly rate since we didn't originally book a week. We've had many campgrounds honor the weekly rate whenever the threshold was met. I would stay here again.

Very nice, almost level, thick gravel spots. Lots of spacing between spots with a grass strip. At this time, absolutely no shade. The exercise room is the best I have seen. Some of the equipment is outdated but there is a decent variety. They also have a wonderful large book exchange. The bathrooms are spotless. Each bathroom includes a shower and is self-contained. They also provide nice, hotel quality cotton bath mats: something I've never seen before. Overall a quiet RV campground with a bit of traffic noise. Some extended stay apparent but very clean and uncluttered. Except for the lack of beautification, the amenities can hardly be beat. The staff was also very friendly and accommodating.
