This is a great park. Very clean and well maintained. The site and grass are well groomed. There is a reasonable amount of space between sites. The park was very quiet. Utilities were in good physical and working condition. The bathrooms and showers were very clean. There is a small store on site which I found unusual for a county park. The store staff was very nice and informative. The office is actually located at the back of the park and you are supposed to go there first despite likely passing the site you reserved on the way. Great location for exploring the city.

This is a very nice city park. It is in a great location in the center of town. You can walk to Main street and restaurants. The campground is part of a much larger city park that includes a huge playground, amplitheater, pavilion and walking trails. Within walking distance is a city aquatic center. The restroom building was very clean.

We have missed feelings about this campground. The location worked fine for visiting Niagara Falls, but other than that, the immediate area around the campground offers nothing within walking distance. Public bus service to Niagara was very convenient, with a stop for Bus 40 directly across the street. It was a $2, 20 minute bus ride to the falls departing every 30 minutes. Coming home in the evening though, the service slips to every 90 minutes so beware and research your return times. There is a wide variety of sites here from concrete patios with patio furniture and gas grills all the way down to grass sites without utilities. Some sites would be very conducive to satellite while others are not. There is no cable TV. The electrical utility was fine for our stay. The water was poorly done. There was a very wobbly water pipe coming out of the ground, not supported by a wood post or anything. It was a challenge to thread the hose while trying to keep the water pipe from moving. Water pressure was adequate. Our site was reasonably level but did require 1 block under two different tires. The site itself needed more rock and was not well maintained - lots of weeds growing up through the rocks. There was two different pools and a good variety of kids amenities and activities. The west restrooms had no working air conditioning which was very unpleasant during 90 degree days. You'd hope to get much more for your money here, but we understand that this is New York and Niagara Falls so the cost is what it is. We were satisfied with our stay, but we'd research other options if we came back.

We used this campground as an overnight stay, but wished we could have stayed longer. It was a beautiful campground set among lots of mature trees. The sites were extremely well maintained with a significant amount of rock and not even any visible weeds growing in the rocks. We were level without needing any blocks. The utilities worked well and the cable TV channel selection was robust. Everything was clean and well cared for. This is a very nice place and we'd come back without hesitation.

We used this campground as an overnight stop during a cross-country trip. It is about 5 minutes off the I-280 bypass around the Quad Cities. It was more than adequate for our purposes. We called ahead because of arriving after closing hours. They moved us to a site that was better suited for arriving after dark and we appreciated that. We did not partake in any of the activities or amenities. We found our site to be level and the utilities in good working order. We would not hesitate to stop here again.

I really want to like this campground because the positives are really positive. The staff was super. They were very friendly. They have some great food options onsite, including really good BBQ on the weekends, pizza made to order and a weekend breakfast buffet. All of the food that we tried (BBQ, pizza and breakfast) was very good. There is a good variety of recreational activities including swimming pool, shuffleboard, mini golf, a playground, jumping pillow (extra fee) and peddle cars (extra fee). At $52 per night and $3 more for an extra child, charging for a jumping pillow seems a little petty. The sites were reasonably level and all utilities were in good working order. The cable TV had a good selection of stations and the signal was strong. Now, the only negative about this park is that the sites are WAY too tight. There are small number of long back-ins and I'd highly recommend trying to reserve those. They will easily accommodate even the longest Class A's. They have nice side yards. Ours included a wood patio and some concrete patio pavers. But the pull through sites are among the tightest sites that I've seen. The cabins are also packed in and within about 4' of each other. You better hope you have good neighbors at this campground because you will be living with them for the entirety of your stay.

We enjoyed this park, which is a short 2 minutes from the Dells but away from the busy main streets as well. Don't pick this park if you want to walk to any of the Dells attractions. The park is unique in that it is tiered up the side of a hill. There are a lot of trees so most sites have shade, but a few are open. A variety of utility configurations are available including full hookups with cable. Sites are nicely maintained and have a reasonable amount of space. My only complaint about the sites is a lack of consistency between two adjacent sites of the same category. In other words, our full hookup back-in site has a dirt (not even gravel) patio area, while the same category full hook-up right next to us had a concrete pad. It was not a problem because of good weather. But if it had rained, it would have been a mess. Frankly, I expect concrete, or at least rock, patios for $50 per night. The pool and splash pad area was well maintained and a nice atmosphere. The store, game room, laundry, etc., were all nicely maintained. The restrooms were very nice. They were typical of a casual restroom in terms of construction and cleanliness. The showers were individual rooms separate from the restrooms. The showers were a little dirty but we were not the first shower of the day. All in all, this was a very nice campground and we would return.

This is a quaint little county park. When we stayed here, it had been under water several weeks ago after a bad flood in the area so things were still a little soggy. We were passing through the area, and we were the only campers there. The sites are a mix of grass pads and rock pads depending on the site. Most sites are shaded, and some of them back to a small stream. Having water available at the site was a plus. Two adjacent sites share a single pedestal, so depending on the site, your utility connections may be on the opposite side of the coach. We could still reach everything using 25' cords and hoses, though. There is nothing to do at this campground. A short walk from the campground leads you to the public park and shelter area which has a well maintained playground. The restrooms and showers were surprisingly very nicely maintained. It appeared to be a newer building. Oddly, there was no place to dispose of trash anywhere in the campground.

This is a nicely maintained city park. The park was well kept. The park backs to a nice, clear stream and provides for nice walking opportunities. Sites were level and electrical power was stable. There was plenty of room between sites. The restrooms and showers were reasonably clean but are not air conditioned. They left the entrance doors open, presumably to allow air flow, but this meant large amounts of flies inside the rest rooms. The location is good with easy walking or bike riding along the river, including to the popular Whippy Dip ice cream shop.

The park is easily accessible off of I-90. Access road is a well maintained gravel road off the County highway. Interior roads are gravel. Sites are gravel and reasonably level, needing only one or two leveling blocks. The sites are very spacious for even the biggest rigs. The site side yards are grass and very large in size. There are mature trees scattered throughout the park but in general the park is open. At certain times of day, in certain sites, there could be some shade but it isn't prevalent. Satellite reception should be good most sites depending on scattered tree locations. Over the air, we received 20 channels from nearby Austin, MN with perfect reception. Utilities were in good working order. Wi-Fi got little bogged down at night, but signal strength was strong. Bathrooms were clean and showers were spacious. The showers have a separate dressing area within the single shower stall. There is a small store with the necessities as well as some crafts. Recreational activities include a pool, basketball hoop and modern well maintained playground. There is clean laundry with modern machines. Staff was very friendly. There was some road noise from I-90 with the coach completely closed up but the air conditioning off. Overall a nice, well maintained campground that we would return to.

We stayed here on an overnight as we passed through the area. It is located off of the Interstate a few minutes. You pass through an area that has many stores, restaurants and other amenities available. The campground has a gated entrance, though the area appears to be very safe and slightly upscale. The check-in process was quick. The staff was very friendly. They escorted us to our site in a golf cart. There are a lot of seasonal stays at this campground. By looking at the map, I'd estimate 2/3rds of the campground is seasonal. This wasn't an issue at all though. We went for walks around the campground and most all of the sites were clean and pretty well maintained. There were 4 conveniently located overnight sites right near the entrance. They had a fairly significant left to right slant on these sites. You will need to level. The area around the utilities hook-ups could be improved, at least on our site. The area wasn't rock but it also wasn't grass. It appeared to be grass at one time, but resembled what is left of grass under a tree when the grass doesn't grow any more. Any dripping water from the faucet or hose turns the area into mud, and then you are rolling up your hose and electrical in mud. A little rock would make this situation much better. There is a small lake with swimming, with a lifeguard. There is a slide in the lake and an inflatable water toy. There is no swimming pool. There is a small general store with hand scooped ice cream and homemade fudge. There is no cable TV but I received 50+ stations using our over the air antenna. The bathroom / showers are conveniently located near the front of the park. My biggest issue was with the showers. They were clean in the sense that they were well constructed and the materials were in good condition. However, there was mud on the floor of all 4 of them. Part of the problem is that they have this rigid plastic shower curtains that don't pull tight to the sides of the shower. Water from the shower goes outside the shower to the floor and any dirt on the floor becomes mud. The restrooms were clean, however, they are separate from the shower on the other side of the building. The shower has no sink and no mirror. The bathrooms have no place to set your toiletries bag to finish getting ready. This park was fine, but I am not sure that it was worth $50. I'd go back in the future at $35, but for $50 I will look at other options first. However, I would go back if it was the only option.

We enjoyed this campground on our overnight trip eastbound. If you are traveling eastbound from West of the Mississippi River, it makes a good place to stop for the night if you want to travel through Chicago the next morning. It is right off the Interstate and you pass a Love's on the way to the campground. There is definitely Interstate noise when outside, but we didn't notice it inside at all. We would also like this campground for a more lengthy stay. There are back-in and pull-through sites to pick from. The site sizes are generous. There are various rates available depending on the hookups you want. The $29 rate was Good Sam water & electric. There are full hookups available and a dump station. You can get shaded sites and sites in completely open space. The restrooms and showers were clean. It took a while for the hot water to get there, but it eventually got there. There is a very nice and well maintained swimming pool. There is a small playground, tether-ball, basketball and some walking trails. There is a store with basic necessities (food and camping equipment). There is also a game room. We will definitely be back when heading that direction.

This campground made for a great overnight stay when traveling through the Atlanta area. It is conveniently located right off the Interstate, but there was no noticeable Interstate noise at all. The park was very clean with gravel sites. Leveling was not a problem. The campground has some sites without cable TV (cheaper rate), but it should be noted that we could not get any Atlanta area stations over the air. The rest rooms and showers were clean and completely adequate. The showers were a little on the small side. There was your typical children's playground and swimming pool onsite.

This was a conveniently located campground right off of I-70. It is 1 minute off the Interstate, in a commercial area of truck stops and fast food restaurants. However, none of this is visible from the campground. While the entrance to the campground is set back from the Interstate a bit, once you enter the campground you come back towards the Interstate. While the Interstate was not visible, there was a decent amount of noise from it. The campground was clean, with mostly gravel sites. Leveling was not an issue. The showers were clean and adequate, however they were very small. Each shower cubicle consisted of dressing area and the shower stall. The shower stall was very small. A camper of size would have difficulty. My wife, who is not of size, commented that shaving her legs was a bit of a trick. We would stay at this campground again for an overnight trip given its convenient location.

This park was more than acceptable for the price. We used it as an overnight stop. There were very few people in the park. On a Saturday night, we had no other coaches on either side of us for at least 5 spots. There are two "sections" to this park. One appears to be the original park and has mature trees. The other is right near the park entrance and is without trees. This front section would be good for a very quick in and out overnight stay. There were literally no coaches in this entire section. Utilities were functional and stable. The park had some animals in it (cats and dogs), the cat roamed free but all dogs we saw were on leashes. The showers were clean and functional, though I didn't care for the layout. The bathroom building appeared new, and was a metal building. The sink, toilets and showers were all within the same building. The showers were provided with shower curtains for privacy. The floors were bare concrete, no tile. Being off the Interstate, this place was very quiet. The staff and locals were very friendly.

This was a very nice park. The spots are adequately sized, though they are not luxuriously spacious by any means. All of the utilities were functional and in good condition. Sites were level and easy to access. The park is easy to access of the Interstate and nearby is many choices for food, gas, etc. None of those amenities appeared to be within walking distance. There were a ton of trees on the grounds, providing lots of shade. This did not affect TV reception and many neighbors had satellite dishes, so I assume they get adequate reception. The showers were very nice. Each shower was in its own room, with separate access from the exterior. In addition to the shower, outside the shower was a dressing area. Each area was more than adequately sized. There was no sink or toilet in the shower area, but they were in the same building. We would definitely stay here again.

We enjoyed our stay and will return to this park. It is a short (a couple miles) off I-80 in Central Iowa, on a paved highway. The staff was very friendly. They were accommodating and catered to our kids. The location is in the country. There are very few trees in the actual campsites. Our site happened to be one of the very few with a mature tree. The majority of the sites are open to the sky. I received all of the Des Moines, IA digital TV stations without even raising my Winegard antenna from the driving position. The swimming pool was refreshing and a nice temperature, even for a 80 degree day. There is a new basketball court and hoop. The playground was decent for our kids. The store had basic necessities for RV supplies, plus basic food and snack type food. This was a nice stay.
