Heavily treed with dirt access road and site pads. Very quiet and all utilities worked fine. No satellite due to trees. Staff is very friendly as are the seasonal residents. Nice pool and lots of activities planned for the weekend (kid-related). We made last minute plans to visit Michigan Adventure and this was the only campground we could find with room available. It is about 20 miles north of the amusement park. We would stay here again.

Rate is for 30 amp and water, back in site. Reserved here in February via the mail. Received several calls from the manager about site choice. Seems he was dealing with a larger than normal number of 'seasonal campers' so we were moved from a full hookup site into a power & water site. No problem, happy to be able to stay here for a week in July. Site was level with view out front and 'living room' of Little Traverse Bay. Park wifi is very good and we had no problems with cell or DirecTV service. There is a very loud hum, as others have mentioned, from the hospital which is located above the campground. After a day or two it became background noise and we didn't really notice it any more.

Sites are located around the perimeter of a parking lot next to the demolition derby/rodeo grounds. These events are held seasonally and would make the location very noisy/busy if they were occurring. To access the power and water you need to park on grass but your tow vehicle or 'towed' can park on asphalt. There is also a picnic table at each site. Good 50 amp. No obstructions for roof mounted satellites, and Verizon worked well here. Pick a site and than register at hotel desk in casino. Be sure and get your Rewards card - new members get free play and other 'rewards'. Easy access to St Ignace and ferries out to Mackinaw Island. The only drawback here is that it is nearly impossible to get level due to the slant of the lot. But a good deal - if you stay away from the gambling - at $10 a night.

We booked our site by mail in February. We had a back in 50 amp and water site on the river - view out the back not the front window of our coach. There is a row of back-in, river facing sites that we would try to get into next time. With the exception of the river front sites the park was not full during our visit. The 50 amp voltage was low and our coach ran more like it was on 30 amp (one appliance at a time). Verizon worked and we had no problems with our roof mounted satellite dish. Dump stations easily accessible - one for rigs going out, the other for rigs coming in. We would stay here again.

Rate reflects Good Sam discount for 50 amp and water pull-through site. Sewer only available at 30 amp sites. Park is clean and well maintained. Very limited Verizon cell phone service. Our roof mounted satellite worked in the site we were assigned but some other sites may be too treed. We visited the falls and shipwreck museum from here one day and the Seney National Wildlife Refuge and the fabulous Top of the Lake Snowmobile Museum in Naubinway on our second day. You are asked to sign a waiver upon registration stating that you can not ask for a refund due to bugs or weather. We found it funny...others may not. Bugs were not too bad in late July.

Rate listed is for 50 amp & water site. Per the staff, the Full hookup sites are reserved well ahead of time - often in October of the previous year. Location is what really makes this a great park. Not only is it on Lake Superior, but it is only a short drive to Munising and the Pictured Rocks National Park. Verizon cell service & MiFi service both worked here as did our roof mounted satellite. Park could be greatly improved if someone were to come through and re-align the utilities. We saw some folks with 3 hoses connected together to reach the water hookups! The power hookups were also out of position in most of the sites.

10% discount given with Good Sam. Nice park with friendly staff. No problems with any of the utilities, including the Wi-Fi, which worked well in our site. Small, clean, and reasonably priced laundry room. Pool and playground. Short hiking trail. Sites and roads are gravel with lots of grass and trees! Would recommend a visit to the WWII Glider Museum, along with the Cornish Pump & Mining Museum in town. Also, a pasty at Jean Kays in town (take out only). The town of Iron Mountain has every service you could need. We would recommend this campground and would stay here again.

Nice county run park. There is a campground host, although we never saw him in our 2 week stay. Had a few problems with late night partiers in other sites that were not taken care of. Restrooms were cleaned by park staff daily, and grounds were well maintained. Park was almost empty during the week but filled up both weekends we were there. The only other concern is that roads leading to the park are not well signed. We followed the directions in our Trailer Life guide and had no problems. Our GPS wanted to take us down a dead end road every time we came or went, so be careful! We would certainly stay here again and would recommend it to anyone interested in visiting the area. It's 24 miles to Milwaukee and 90 miles to Chicago from here - both places we visited during our stay.

Rate is for a full hookup 50 amp space. No discounts offered. Park has new owners as of 2013. Heavily treed with gravel roads and site pads. Park is very quiet and well maintained and is located north of Sturgeon Bay but south of Egg Harbor. Wi-Fi did not work at our site and the water pressure was so low that we had to run off our holding tank. Kind of shame, given what we paid in a nightly rate. Lots of stuff for kids and park is very family oriented. We would try a different campground if we were to visit again.

Easy access off I-40. All sites are gravel pull throughs with full hookups. Nice spacing between sites. The park offers a package which includes 2 tickets to tour the Pueblo, two photo passes, and two entries into the cultural center/museum. You also get $16 towards lunch at the Cultural Center and 2 buffet breakfast's at the casino - all for $50 plus one night's camping fee ( $19.80, after Good Sam Discount ). It is a dry park, so we just kept the alcohol inside the coaches. There is a drop box for the key, so you no longer have to wait for the office to open. We would stay here again.

This park is located at exit 81 on Interstate 40 and is not really adequate for bigger rigs. In fact, we pulled in and were re-directed to Bar S by the manager here. Both parks are owned by the same person, offer the same amenities and charge the same rate. The manager informed us that since they had no room to expand here at Blue Spruce the owner had purchased property down the road and built Bar S to accommodate today's bigger rigs. So, save yourself a trip off the Interstate if you travel in a big rig - we are a 40 foot class A with 4 slides - and head to exit 79 and the Bar S RV Park.

This park gets a solid 8 for the following reasons: Easy access - exit 79 off Interstate 40. Large pull throughs - with plenty of room for slides. Full hookups 30 or 50 amp for $2 additional per night. With free cable & Wi-Fi. Park is clean and well maintained. Staff is friendly & helpful. Yes, the interstate is along one side and the railroad tracks are along the other but we have paid much more for parks in similar settings which offered fewer amenities.

This was an overnight stop for us and fit our needs. If we had been coming from the I-84 side of Boise this would have been way out of the way - it is easily 8 miles off the freeway through city streets & dozens of signal lights. As it is we were coming in from the Highway 55 side ( from McCall ) and it was easily accessible. Staff was friendly & helpful. Park is very clean. Short term sites are all pull throughs with picnic table, 50/30 amp, sewer, water & cable. The office staff also give you a code for free Wi-Fi - we got one code for each of our computers. The deal here is to stay for a month which is $345 plus electricity. There is plenty to do in and around Boise to justify a longer stay!

This park actually has a Garland, Utah address ( 5600 West 19200 North is the physical address ) This is a membership park - Camperworld runs 10 parks in Utah and a few of them are open to RPI, Coast to Coast & AOR folks. The park is laid out in three levels. The lower one contains the office, fish pond, hiking trails and hot springs - a large warm pool & two smaller hot tubs. There is also a PADI approved scuba pond! The next level is for rigs up to 34 feet in length and contains mostly pull through sites. The top level is all back in sites that will accommodate the largest rigs. The views from the top level are stunning!! Each site has a picnic tables, 30/50 amp hookups, water, electric. The park also has Wi-Fi which works well. Each spot on the upper level also has a small grass patio area - very nice! There is also a 9 hole golf course on site - the rate in the 'off season' is $10 with a cart!!

We have been fulltime RV'ers now for almost 7 years and sometimes a place just 'fits'. I can't really describe it any better than that. Well, Bears Den is one of those places. Full hookups,Wi-Fi, easy access and manueverablity to even the largest of rigs and nice folks. The nightly rate is also reasonable. The town of Grangeville is located close by and has everything you could ever need. There is also enough to do in the area to keep you busy for a day or two - or you could just take a well deserved day off!

Killgore Adventures runs Jet Boat tours of Hells Canyon along with fishing charters. To accommodate their customers they also offer a campground and a 6 room motel on their property in White Bird. The campground offers back in spaces with full hookups. There was no Verizon cell phone service but the office has a computer for use if needed. The setting is beautiful with access to a private swim beach on the Salmon River. We found the staff we had contact with the be helpful and friendly. We would definitely recommend this a a place to stay either when heading out on Killgores Jet Boat tour ( a MUST in our opinions...) or as a place to just escape for a few days!

We spent Labor Day weekend here and the place was booked solid. Fortunately, the sites are large and laid out in such a way as to make you not feel cramped. A few of the sites have sewer hookup and there is also a large dump station at the entrance to the park. Sites also have 50 amp service, which came in very handy. We weren't able to get rooftop satellite access; lots of trees here but our portable worked. Our Verizon aircard was sketchy as we were on an extended network. We booked on line and the nightly rate reflects the additional fees for doing so. We would recommend this campground and are looking forward to a future stay.

$42 was a bit pricey for what we had but the staff was very accommodating. We showed up with 5 large rigs at about 10 am. We all ended up in full hookup pull through sites. The problem was that the power at 2 of the sites didn't work. The staff worked on the pedestals and managed to get things up and working. This park's amenities are a bit on the rustic side but, they do have big horn sheep who appear to like tent sites! We used this campground as a jumping off point for a day trip into Glacier and Revelstoke National Parks, and headed into the Lake Louise section of Banff the next day. If you are passing through, I would recommend this park, but I don't think we would stay here again.

We stayed three days and used this campground as a jumping off point for visiting not only Lake Louise (a short 5 minute drive away), but also the town of Banff. All sites are pull throughs and will fit the largest of rigs. The 30 amp electric worked very well and we had no problems with low amperage. Sites are shared by 2 rigs with units pulling in on opposite sides. We would recommend this campground and would stay here again.

What a beautiful campground! We only spent one night but could have easily stayed longer just to enjoy the tranquility of this place! The full hookup sites are located within a series of circles and all sites are pull throughs. The roadways are easily accessible to even the largest of rigs. There is a nice walking path from the campground into the town of Jasper and the northern entrance to the Icefields Parkway is a short drive away. We would definitely recommend this campground and are looking forward to a return visit in the future!

Campground is nicely treed and roadways are easily accessed by big rigs. We had such low power at our site ( #20 ) that we could only run one appliance at a time without suffering a 'brown out'. The wi-fi was also out during our visit. The good news is that the visitor center in town has free wi-fi during the hours they are open. The visitor center also has a very nicely done museum. We used this as a pit stop only and would probably dry camp somewhere along the way next time we are through the area.

Membership park which is now open to non-members through Encore resorts. Sites are 30 amp and water only. They do offer a 'honey' service on Tuesdays and Saturdays for $15. There is also a dump station on site. Roads and camping pads are all paved. Our Verizon phone and aircard worked well here. We didn't check out the Wi-Fi at the clubhouse. We also ended up in a site that allowed us to connect to DirecTV with our rooftop satellite. The only drawback, at least for us, is that only a few sites will accommodate our 40 foot motorhome and the roads are a little on the narrow side. There is lots to see and do in the area. Ukiah (north of) and Santa Rosa (south of) are both about 30 minutes away. The Coast, Napa Valley and Clear Lake are all about an hour away. Cloverdale does have a Ray's grocery store and an Ace hardware. If you like wine and wine tasting you will find the Alexander Valley and surrounding area to be heaven!

Nice, small park. Looked like a lot of folks living here but they have a 10 year rule on units so everything was very neat and clean. Good roads, easy access to highway 6. Verizon phone/aircard worked but also had good Wi-Fi. Laundry is reasonably priced. ($1 each to wash/dry, with 3 machines for each.) Our only issue was that we felt the sites were a bit on the small side. Our patio lined up with the neighbors sewer connection which could make for a smelly situation. Also, it's a bit on the pricey side for the limited 'amenities' but priced for the area. Must have something to do with the local tax situation. Of course, they do offer pretty good discounts for longer (weekly, monthly) stays.

Beautiful campground with some sites located right along the lakeshore. We did some sightseeing in Tulsa and Claremore from here and both were within about 1 hours drive. Roads are accessible, cell phone and air card both worked here. It did get busy on the weekends but we pretty much had the place to ourselves during the week. The only issue I have is that I understood through this site and the park's website that water hookups were available at the sites. This is not the case. There are water spigots located throughout the park and we were able to run a long hose to one. They are not at the individual sites, but rather shared. If our neighbor had been hooked up to it we would have been out of luck. And, there is no potable water at the dump station, so plan accordingly!

Let me start with the good. Lots of trees but also open sites for those of us with rooftop satellite systems. 30 amp and water only but easily accessible dump stations. Roads are in pretty rough condition but are accessible to even the largest rigs and set ups. Our Verizon air card and cell phones worked here. It's also convenient to Dallas and Fort Worth attractions. And, the lake is beautiful with fishing and swimming as well as rental boats. The negative. We are fulltime RV'ers and have run across a lot of rules in our travels. The most frustrating is the charging of a day use fee along with a camping fee. We are of the opinion that if you are paying a camping fee it should include any additional 'day use' fee. If that means you have to raise your rates do it. Charging a secondary fee, in this case $5 per person, per day: is maddening and will probably keep us away in the future.

What a fantastic State Park. Yes, it's pricy, especially when you add on the additional day use fees they charge (which can be lowered by purchasing a year round pass.) The turn off from Colorado State Highway 115 onto the park access road is a little tight, but after that it's easy going. Our Verizon cell phone and aircard worked and we had no problem with the roof mounted satellite dish. There is lots to do in and around the area, or you can just hang out in the park which has over 20 miles of hiking trails! Just watch out for the bears!! You will be warned about them and given directions on how to store your food, etc., when you arrive.

Yet another nice State Park. We arrived on a Thursday and had no problem finding a 50 amp site that would accommodate our 40 motorhome. By Friday, the place was completely full. Lea Lake, which is the only one of the Bottomless Lakes that you are able to swim in is right next to the campground and was busy every day we were here. It's spring fed and very refreshing! We had no problems with the roadways, our Verizon phone and air card worked and Roswell is within easy driving distance. This is another park we would not hesitate recommending or staying at again!

For a pit stop things don't get much easier than Hill Top RV park. Easy access from highway 10, big pullthroughs and full hookups along with Wi-Fi. Our Verizon phones and air card worked here as well. The hosts/owners are very nice and the park is spotless! We would not hesitate to stay here again if passing through the area.

We arrived mid-week without a reservation and had no problem finding a site that would hold our 40 motorhome in the 'no reservation' section. The park only has thirteen 50 amp spaces and only four of these are in the no reservation loop. Our Verizon phones and air card worked here. We had no problems negotiating the roadways and Carlsbad ( the city ) is a short drive away. We day tripped to Carlsbad Caverns ( a must do!! ) and out to Sitting Bull Falls ( also a must do - take your suits! ) We would not hesitate to recommend this park or to stay here again if we are passing through the area.

We paid a weekly rate of $150.00. This is a very basic park with a friendly and helpful staff. You are escorted to your site: the majority of which are pull throughs. We had very good 50 amp service and very low water pressure. We actually filled our fresh water tank and ran the water off the pump. You are instructed - twice - that sewer hoses must be off the ground. The park is conveniently located off Highway 10 and is close to a Super Wal-mart and a large Frys grocery store is less than a mile away. There is quite a bit of freeway noise along with lots of Air Force fighter jet noise. Interior roads are paved, sites are sand and fairly sparse. We used this campground as a jumping off point for several Cactus League baseball games: all of which were within a 30 minute drive from here. We would recommend this park and would definitely stay here again.

Conveniently located off Highway 10 and close to shopping and the sites of the Coachella Valley, this is a very popular Thousand Trails park. In fact, it can be difficult to get into during the season. The staff is friendly and helpful. The park and facilities are also well maintained. About 1/2 of the sties have 50 amp service, which is unusual in the world of Thousand Trails parks! Some sections of the park are difficult to maneuver through in a 40 foot motorhome. This could be eased a bit by the removal of a few trees, in particular the ones by the pickle ball courts.

We have been staying at this campground for years and have always enjoyed our stays. The campground is well maintained and the staff is always friendly. Besides the dairy next door, which was there before any of the housing and the campground, there is also a turkey farm, so the flies and smell can be awful during the summer months. The pool, spa and lodge are always clean and they have a restaurant on site that serves breakfast and lunch. There is also a lot to do within a short drive. On our last visit we made a trip to Yorba Linda and visited the Nixon Presidential Library: it was less than an hour away.

We spent a very enjoyable week here. We parked on the north side which is where everyone starts out. This side has water and electric hookups only. We chose not to be put on the list to move to the south side which has the sewer hookups. The ranger station and check in is on the south side which requires you to drive through the campground to cross the street: a little inconvenient and probably an annoyance for those parked on the 'loop' that everyone has to circle through. We didn't check out the pool or any of the facilities on the south side. The adult lodge, which is where the Wi-Fi is located, was older with dated furniture. The Wi-Fi was pitifully slow. There is no cell phone or aircard access in the park. Apparently this will be changing shortly with the installation of a cell phone tower in the area. There is lots to do in the area. San Diego is a short drive away, about 30 minutes. We found the staff helpful and friendly and wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

This is a nice, quiet park. It is located along the Paul Bunyon trail which is a paved bike/hiking trail that connects Bemidji to Brainerd (about 110 miles one way). The interior roads and sites are dirt/sand and it gets a little dusty. Also it's difficult not to track sand into your rig. The laundry room was reasonably priced, the restrooms clean and there's a nice non-heated outdoor pool. They have a lot of seasonal renters here but their rigs are well maintained. The pull-through sites are probably the largest we've ever seen. This is also a Passport America park: 1/2 off Monday-Thursday. We would stay here again.

This is a nice COE park located right along the Mississippi River. There is alot to do in the area and we easily 'killed' a week here. The only drawback is that this park is very noisy: the trains weren't really a problem but Highway 2 runs right behind the campground. Road noise all day and all night. They do take reservations for about half the sites: there is no additional fee to make a reservation. The park did fill up every night we were here by about 5pm.

I'm surprised previous posters haven't commented on the gravel pit which is located right next to the campground. They start work at the crack of dawn, with lots of heavy equipment moving around! There is also a fair amount of road noise from hwy 53 as the campground is located right off this highway. The water has a high iron content and is rusty looking as well as smelling. One other 'negative' is that while this park is listed as being in Duluth it is actually in Saginaw (try finding that on any map!) which is about a 30 minute drive into Duluth with lots of signal lights to get through. All that being said, we enjoyed our stay here. The park is well laid out, sites are wide open and easy to get into and out of. Wi-Fi worked great and so did our Verizon aircard and the folks who work here are indeed friendly but non-intrusive. We also heard that the fishing in the 3 small lakes/ponds was very good - catch and release only.

This is a membership campground that we were able to stay at with our RPI membership. Located less than 5 miles off the Pennsylvania Turnpike in the Laurel Highlands area of Pennsylvania, this is a very nice campground. Interior roads are gravel and rather rough after the seasons rains. Sites are all back ins and gravel. They are mostly level. Sites offer 30 amp, water and cable hookups. There is a dump station on the way out of the park. The entire area is heavily treed but we managed to get satellite reception with our free standing dish. Our Verizon air card also worked well here. Pittsburgh is less than an hour away and there are several state and National parks in close proximity. We would definitely stay here again.

This is a membership campground and we stayed here under our Coast to Coast membership. We are full time RV'ers and ask for only a few things in a commercial campground. 1) Electrical hookups that provide 'good' power, 2) level sites and 3) accessible roads. This park met none of our requirements! After checking in and being led to the back of the campground along narrow, treed, and heavily potholed roads we backed into our very unlevel, narrow, downhill sloping site. Plugging into the 30 amp hookups provided us with barely enough power to run one appliance. We called the office and asked for maintenance to stop by to check the power situation. Well, 24 hours later, after 3 more calls and a stop at the office maintenance finally showed up. His explanation was that 'they always have problems with power in this part of the park'. NOT ACCEPTABLE, no matter how much you are paying. The pool and clubhouse are nice. We found the office staff to be friendly but not terribly helpful - I doubt we will stay here again.

This park is 30 minutes from Atlantic City, Ocean City and Long Beach Island, 1 hour from Philadelphia and Cape May and just under 2 hours from NYC. We visited all of these locations from here. Which is a good thing since this park has nothing to offer. The pool was not clean, the kiddie pool was full of sand, the mini golf is falling apart and the ceiling of the clubhouse has fallen in - BUT, the clubhouse was still open! The full hookup sites barely fit a 40 foot coach and are overgrown with weeds and for the most part unlevel. Sites towards the front of the park are either without sewer or taken up by long term residents. Other than at check in we never again saw any park staff or maintenance workers. One last note, during our 2 week stay I did laundry 4 times. The same piece of garbage was on the floor everytime and I am sure it is still there! This park needs a new manager as well as a new maintenance crew - with everything that is available in the area this park could be a jewel in the TTN system with very little effort.

We weren't as big of fans of this park as other reviewers have been. Yes, it is convenient to the Metro and if you don't have a car you can catch a bus from right at the entrance. We found the sites to be cramped. Our neighbors tow dolly butted up against our picnic table and we had no room for outside chairs,etc. Our site was also full of cigarette butts ( a pet peeve ) and other garbage left behind by previous users. (evidence that the sites aren't cleaned or checked between usage) We spent 16 days here and about half way through our gate code quit working. When we stopped off at the office we were told we should have been given a gate card, not a code. The clerk continued to argue with us and made some snide comments about us after we left the counter ( our friends were standing in line to get a new code as well and heard her...at least she appeared embarrassed when confronted by our friend! ) When it came time to leave we had a difficult time maneuvering our 40 foot coach through the roadway we were parked on due to all the tow vehicles and trucks parked in front of the various rigs - this is because the sites were all too short to accommodate the rigs & cars. We realize you pay a premium for convenience but we expected a bit more 'for our money'.

Large park with sites spread out over 4 different areas. 220 sites offer full hookups with about 40 of these having 50 amp service (first come first served and $5 a nite additional fee) 167 sites are 30 amp and water only - the R section of these sites is located along the lake. Large club house & cafe with all the activities one is accustomed to having at a TTN park. This park is a bit off the beaten track - about 30 miles to the closest major supermarket ( there is a small market in Lakehills but it's pricey!) As others have stated - do not follow directions on GPS use the ones in the TTN directory. We would stay here again.

The rate is with Passport America discount which is good Sunday through Thursday. This is a nice park with full hookup sites both pull through, pull in and back in. Restrooms were clean and well maintained. They have wi-fi which we did not use since our verizon air-card worked well here. As other reviewers have indicated the area across from and to the south of this campground is pretty crummy with lots of junk - the park itself is very clean and well maintained. The park is one of two (the other is Spanish Trail) which are located south of Moab which adds a little to the distance needed to drive to Arches, Canyonland, Dead Horse and the La Sal loop road. We would stay here again.

We stayed here under our RPI membership - fee was $10 a night with additional $1 for Wi-Fi ( which was pretty slow and spotty in it's connection ) Our Verizon cell phones & internet air card did not work here. Nice amenities including indoor pool & hot tub that were still open - the outdoor one was closed during our visit in late September. Nice laundry room and clubhouse. The parks setting is stunning and the access to Curecanti National Rec. area including the Blue Mesa lake is very convenient (literally right outside the entrance gates ) Roads are paved, sites are not and we found most of them to be fairly unlevel. There is a section of the park dedicated to permanent residents - mostly RV's but a few park models. A lot of the sites had a 'weedy' look to them - not sure if this is natural vegetation or just poor maintenance. We would definitely stay here again.

We stayed here under our Coast to Coast membership. Rate should be $10 a night but they have added a $4 surcharge for electric (30 amp) My opinion is that the surcharge is to make the rate the same as the Passport America rate. At check in we were told that they are encouraging people to use PA rather than other memberships. The park roads are gravel as are the sites but they are large and will easily accommodate any size rig. The pool & spa were both closed during our visit in late September. Located about 9 miles south of Montrose and 25 miles north of Ouray this park is convenient to the local attractions. It does offer up some great views of the San Juan mountains but it is off Hwy 550 so traffic noise is a little distracting.

Nice state park - electric hookups only (30 amp) with conveniently located dump stations and ample restroom facilities. We stayed in the Arkansas Point section of the park and our restroom had no shower facilities. The views here are stunning and the Campground got very busy over the weekend with boaters and fishermen - we are neither. I don't know if we would stay here again as we didn't find much to do in the Pueblo area. Keep in mind that Colorado charges a day use fee for all vehicles in the park. This is on top of your camping fees and is applied to all motorized vehicles. The fee at Lake Pueblo was $6 a day. In our case (motor home and tow vehicle) an additional $12 per day. We have offset this fee by purchasing the annual pass - $60 for the first vehicle & $25 for the second - good for one year from the month of purchase and good at all Colorado state parks.

We had a great week long stay here and I have to agree with the previous reviewers - this is a great state park. Conveniently located to the sites and attractions in metro Denver area but far enough away to offer peace & quiet. The sites are large offering full hookups and lots of room. The restrooms are adequate, clean and the newer one in the "D" loop has a very nice laundry room. On top of the camping fee Colorado charges a daily vehicle fee. The fee is charged for all motorized vehicles. At Chatfield the fee is $7 per vehicle, per day. In our case, this included our tow vehicle as well as the motorhome - even though it never left the site. We are staying at enough Colorado state parks that we offset this fee by purchasing the annual pass ( good for a year from the month of purchase ) The passes cost $60 for the first and $25 for the second. Well worth it in our opinion.

We enjoyed our week long stay here. The sites are electric hookup only but they have ample restroom facilities with pay showers and the dump station is conveniently located. Interior roads are paved as are the sites. The pull through sites are strangely angled - almost like a crescent shape - which made it a bit of a challenge to fit a 40 foot motor home in a 45 foot space while keeping all 4 wheels on the pavement. Unlike the previous reviewer, we had only positive contacts with the park staff and campground host. We visited Rocky Mountain National Park, Fort Colins, Greeley and Loveland using Boyd Lake as a home base. All are easily accessible from this campground. Be aware that on top of the nightly camping fee Colorado charges a daily fee for all motorized vehicles. This includes your tow vehicle and, in our case the motor home (even though it never left the site) The fee at Boyd Lake is $6 per vehicle per day. We are staying at enough Colorado State Parks that we offset this cost by purchasing annual pass -$60 per year for first vehicle, $25 for the second.

We stayed here under Coast to Coast - rate was $10 a night with additional $3 for 50 amp. We stayed in the newer 'big rig' section up top which required driving through the entire campground and maneuvering around several large trees, do-able but would be easier if they would remove a few of the trees right on the roadway. ( they even warned us about one tree at check in that they said was a 'mirror eater' ) Nice park with all the amenities. The newer section is pretty stark - basically a large gravel parking area with the sites being pretty close together. Conveniently located to Colorado Springs and all that it has to offer. We would stay here again.

We spent 10 days here and used this campground as a 'home base' for sight seeing in St Louis. It is about a 45 minute drive to most of the attractions. Sites 1-12 offer 50 amp service the rest of the campground is 30 amp. There is no water hook up at the sites - there are conveniently located water faucets which some people were running hoses to just to fill up (you can't stay connected). None of the sites have sewer at them. The dump station is located in such a way that you may have to go out of the campground to access it or your site after dumping. We were traveling with our grand children and were looking forward to being able to use the pool the website indicated was at this park. Needless to say we were disappointed to learn that it is no longer open. There is also no playground in this campground - another disappointment!

Great state park and campground. We spent a week in one of the full hook up sites which are located across from the river (you can't see the river due to the vegetation). Because this campground flooded twice in March the 'riverfront' sites were full of sand which, naturally got everywhere. We took the Meramec Caverns tour - it is commercially run and about 20 minutes from the campground - we much preferred the Fisher cave tour which is located within the campground. We also did a river float which was enjoyed by everyone. The town of Sullivan is close by and contains a Wal-Mart Supercenter for all your shopping needs. There is also a very nice city-run swimming pool which we enjoyed one afternoon. We had no problems accessing the roadways or sites in our 40 foot coach and would definitely stay here again

We really enjoyed this campground and would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone who wishes to visit Memphis. Beale St & the downtown attractions are less than 10 miles away & Graceland is a short 20 minute drive. There is also a Kroger grocery & Wal-Mart a short drive away. The campground is only 3 miles off of Highways 40 & 55 and is exceptionally quiet at night: no freeway noise here. The river is very busy with tug, barge & ship traffic: watching it was a great way to spend an afternoon. The river front sites are paved & long enough to accommodate rigs that don't want to unhook their vehicles or trailers. The campground is set up in 3 loops each loop contains a bath house building that has 2 washers & 2 dryers: which are complimentary. They also allow you to wash your rig & vehicle in your camp space, a real plus for us as we are fulltimers and the washing of rigs is not usually allowed. You can also have your mail delivered here and they will bring it to your site!! Can't recommend this campground enough and we will definitely be staying here if we return to this area.

Nightly rate for 50 amp hookup is $20 w/$2 discount given for any type of membership (Good Sam, FMCA, etc ), 50 amp sites are #'s 1-9 & #38. All the rest of 30 amp. Water at all sites & dumpstation located the wrong way on a one way street for most campers (no problem to go the wrong way - you are actually directed to do so by the manager). Campground is heavily treed - most sites will not allow a satellite connection even with free standing unit. All networks come in on antennea. Our verizon aircard worked great here for internet service. Conveniently located to sites in Little Rock. I picked this campground over others so the husband could play the 2 golf courses located in the park - he played neither, as they were in pretty poor condition ( ocals he spoke to indicated that they are not well maintained year round - so it wasn't a seasonal issue).

We stayed over the Memorial Day weekend, and the place was packed. Park staff told us that this place fills up every weekend so reservations are definitely a 'must'. Sites are large enough and well spaced to allow for privacy. Half of the sites back up to Lake Ozark ( more like a wide spot in the Arkansas River ).The other half of the sites are across the road from this lakefront sites. You can sit on your patio and watch turtles sunning themselves while barges go through the lock. Or, you can fish from you campsite. The town of Ozark is close by with shops & restaurants. And, yes, the trains do go by at all hours. I heard them at night but the husband slept through them!! We would definitely stay here again.

The Good: park is very close to all of the attractions OKC has to offer. We stayed 2 weeks and did alot of sightseeing and never had to fill the gas tank on our tow vehicle. Free newspaper, coffee & muffins in the office every morning & staff is very helpful/friendly. McClains RV Superstore, which does service work & contains a Camping World is literally right across the freeway, along with a Walmart Superstore and large strip mall with lots of shops & restaurants. The Bad: Campground is right on Hwy 40 so it is very noisy. Sites are close together without much 'patio' room. The laundry facilities are clean but very old and in need of updating. Wi-fi worked intermitently and we were parked right at the office. We enjoyed OKC and if we return we would stay here again just for the convenience that this campground offers. Also, McClains does great work and we would recommend them for any service work you may need done on your rig.

This is a city run campground offering 30 amp & water hook ups. There are no restroom facilities and we never did find the dump station. Over half of the sites are pull-throughs and some of them face toward a pretty lake. The roadways are easily accessible to the largest of rigs. At $10 a night this campground is a real find.

We loved this campground and the town of Woodward. During our stay only the upper campground loop was open - this loop contains the 10 sites (all pull-throughs) that offer 50 amp w/water & sewer. Other sites in the park are 30 amp & water only. The roadways and buildings were built by the CCC in the 1930's - they also planted a number of trees which are now very large and beautiful. There is easy access for large rigs and the sites are open enough to allow for satellite access. The only problem was that our Verizon aircard (Internet access ) did not work here. This is a beautiful state park and we can't wait to visit again.

Located 4 miles north of Las Vegas off of Hwy 518 this park is a great pit stop for sightseeing. The lake is rather small but was very busy during our stay with day visitors who were fishing. Upon entry we could only make a right turn in our 40 foot motorhome because of the angle of the roadway. There are 10 sites at the far north end of the park which offer 30 amp/water and no picnic table or shelter - they are very close together. These sites are located right across from the boat launch and back up to Hwy 518. To the left (south ) after entering the park are the dump station and 15 sites located along a one way roadway. These sites are all pull thrus and offer water, picnic tables & shelters. Some of these sites offer 30 amp electric. They are all positioned in such a way that you have a view of the Hwy & some crummy looking houses from you patio - rather than the lake. A short distance past these sites are 5 more electric/water sites which were closed during our stay.

Rate listed is for back in site without patio - the least expensive site they offer. We felt that this campground was overpriced for the amenities that are offered. For $33 you get a dirt parking space located along a dirt road with 50 amp/water & sewer. Thats it. The laundry facilities were also some of the priciest we have seen. The staff was very helpful and had handouts ready listing all their favorite sites & restaurants. The wind does blow here - the park brochure even cautions you not to leave your awnings out if you leave the park. There is a lot to do in the area and if we return we will probably stay here again - just wish it was priced more reasonably for what you get.

This review is based on the three campgrounds available on the Truth or Consequences side of the lake (south end) Quail Run & Desert Cove have 50 amp service & water at the sites. Lions Beach has 30 amp & water. Some sites are available first come/first served. Others are reservable. NM State Parks charges $10.60 service fee to make a reservation. You can also camp lakeside (dry camping) for $8 a night. Signs indicate you are driving on soft sand and to enter at your risk - we saw lots of tents and smaller trailers - no big rigs lakefront. This is a beautiful park offering lots of nature & peace and quiet. If you are looking for good New Mexican food we recommend La Cocina which is located in town. We will stay here again.

This is what a 'pit stop' should be. Full hook ups w/50 amp for $12 a night (Passport America rate) Nothing fancy but clean. Only 1 mile off Hwy 10 (the only turn you have to make is into the campground). We stayed 2 nights and took in Fort Bowie National Park, Chiricahua National Park and Cochise Stronghold (all can be done on a loop route) on a day trip. The campground did fill up each night we were here - you can call ahead an make reservations. We will stay here again when we pass through the area.

We stayed using our RPI membership which is indicated by the nightly fee. Paved roads at the front of the park - rest of it is gravel. Sites are also gravel w/full hook ups. Didn't pay for WiFi as our Verizon air card worked here. No shade and lots of 'stickers' - which was strange as there isn't really any grass! Small clubhouse w/book exchange & puzzles. Laundry room was clean. No pool or playground for kids. Within driving distance of Fort Huachucha & Tombstone as well as several BLM sites. We would stay here again if we are in the area - mainly because it is part of our RPI membership.

We paid 150.00 for a weeks stay here - nightly rate listed reflects that. This is a good place to stay to explore the local attractions: Tumacacori National Park, Tubac Presidio State Park, Whipple Observatory, Titan Missile Museum, Nogales, Mexico. There is also ample golfing close by. Note (the parks web site has a great link listing these and other local sites). The campground itself is very rustic. Lots of long term campers here in a variety of 'rigs'. It gives the place a run down look. The back side of the campground is a mobile home park containing a variety of homes as well. There are no paved roads/pads in the park which made it very dusty We found the staff very friendly and the laundry room was spotless. I think if we return to this area we will stay at De Anza Trails which is located, literally, right next door and has paved roads & gravel site - less dust!

A little off the beaten path so do your shopping before arrival. Some of the access roads are a bit on the narrow side with some dips, so the trip in was a little slow. The campground is beautiful. Paved roads with gravel sites. 30 amp hook ups only. No reservations and 7 day stay limit. Gilbert Ray is located within Tucson Mountain park which adjoins the western section of Saguaro National Park. Close by are the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum and Old Tucson movie studios. Lots to do in very close proximity. We would definitely stay here again.

We stayed here for 2 nites and really enjoyed this campground. There are several hikes to take in the park and the wildflowers were in bloom while we were here. No reservations, first come/first served but it was not full during our week stay. Roads are easy to manuver and sites are well laid out. The restrooms/showers were spotless and I did not use the shower in our coach for the first time in over 3 years!! Not much else to do in the area - campground is 20 miles from Casa Grande & 40 from Tucson. We would stay here again if we were passing through the area.

Nice park a little off the beaten path, so plan accordingly. They do not take reservations so we called ahead, and were told they had lots of sites available. We arrived on a Sunday, and had no problems finding a spot for our 40 foot coach. The campground filled up on Tuesday as it was spring break, and was still full when we left on the following Sunday. We attended several spring training baseball games in Surprise from here. The drive is about 25 miles. It made a good 'base' camp. We would stay here again.

We are members of Colorado River Adventures so we paid no nightly fee to stay here. This was our first visit and given the previous reviews we were a little nervous about spending 2 weeks here. We found the staff friendly & efficient. Our only contact was on checking in and they had all our paperwork ready - they do lead you to your site but left us alone once they had dropped us off. Well the roads and sites are gravel we did not find it overly dusty. This is the desert after all and we came to this area expecting this type of accommodation. All sites offer only 30 amp which we were surprised about. We had no problems with the water or pressure as we are in the habit of running everything through our fresh water holding tank - this is a trick we have learned over the years - fill the fresh water tank and use it that way you can control the pressure! Our site was large and level with a couple of trees! We enjoyed the pool and laundry room as well as the daily breakfasts & dinners ( at a very reasonable rate ) The park is a bit off the beaten track - about 6 miles north of town which affords it some peace & quiet. We visited friends who were staying closer to town and found the same type of camping conditions but much more road & plane noise ( there is a Marine Air Base in town!) We would recommend this park to anyone who has a Coast to Coast or RPI membership and we will definitely be staying here again

Paved interior roads w/gravel campsites. Some sites back up to the lake (or you can pull in to them for a view out the front window). Good 50 amp power on the developed sites. No sewer hookups but an easily accessible dump station just outside the campground. Park and sites are easily accessible to big rigs - we are 41 feet and had no problems. Showers & restrooms were clean but rustic - they do charge .25 for 3 minutes. The lake was busy with fishermen during the day time. This is by no means a 5 star campground - it is a nicely maintained and well run county park in a very scenic setting. They do hold out 9 sites on a first come/first served basis and the park was not quite full during our stay here. With a weekly rate of $90 for a developed site (water & 50 amp) this campground is a bargain. We will definitely stay here again.

All paved access roads and pads, including a spot for tow/towed vehicle. Full hookups including cable tv. No tables at sites. Wifi is free for first 12 hours, runs consecutively, than 1.50 a day. We didn't use as our Verizon aircard worked great here. Some sites have trees which could be a satellite reception problem. Office staff friendly and referred us to the nearby visitor center for any local info. Is conveniently located off Hwy 90 and only one exit east of all the shops & restaurants, including Costco and Walmart. We would stay here again.

Sites very close together - neighbors sewer was in our patio which was ok as the patio isn't large enough to put out chairs, very small grass area. No trees, all pull thrus, nothing to block satellite TV. Wifi was intermittent at our site but Verizon air card worked great. Full hookups w/cable. Clean laundry room but cost 2.00 for wash & 2.00 for drier - highest price we have seen. Camping area is in a small depression just below hwy 90 but is surprising quiet. Not sure I would want to stay here in the 'high' season - every other site was occupied while we were here and it still felt crowded. It is the best deal in town, however and Peter is great.

The best campground in Buffalo, we checked them all out, but a bit on the pricey side. WiFi didn't work at our site and we had the office in sight. Dirt roads and sites which got pretty muddy after the rain. Some sites are more 'out in the open' than others for satellite reception. Pool & hot tub were still open but 'ice cream social' was over for the year. There are some long term residents here but all is neat and clean. We would stay here again - Winchester Steakhouse within walking distance and very good. Drive out the Cloud Peak Byway to Tensleep is beautiful. Fort Phil Kearny close by with battle sites and museum.

We arrived on the Friday of Labor day weekend with RPI reservations. Park was busy but didn't feel overly crowded. Nice level site with all hookups & cable. WiFi never worked at our site for the whole 2 weeks we were here ( site 103 ) After the long weekend the park pretty much emptied out and they closed down the pool, spa, restaurant, snack shack and the clubhouse hours were shortened. All planned activities also ended - potlucks, cards games, etc. Our neighbors were all Hart Ranch 'members' and we found them not friendly at all - didn't return our hellos or waves. (non-members are given a very bright green car pass - members have a decal attached to the windshield.) We used the park as a home base for sightseeing in the area - most sights are about an hour away ( Deadwood, Sturgis, Spearfish, Crazy Horse, Custer State Park, Rushmore and Hot Springs ) I think most people come here for the activities and resort type amenities not for sightseeing. Because we are RPI members we will probably stay here again when we are in the area.

Great state park. Located just off hwy 90. There are 8 different camping areas here. Part of the park is accessible at exit 154 - we were on the exit 165 side. Stayed in the Pats Point area - 6 miles off the highway and right on the lake in a very long pullthru. Some of the areas offer more shade than others. There are at least 2 boat launches and playgrounds. There is a marina & motel on site also ( kind of crummy looking ). There is also a Volksmarch hiking trail. Fresh water & dump station on the way in. We day tripped to Devils Tower from here and enjoyed the peace and quiet at night.

This is a great county run campground. 50 amp & water at sites for only 15.00 nightly. The roads and sites are paved and accessible to big rigs ( we are 41 feet )They have restrooms but no showers, A playground for kids and several hiking trails. Dump station is easily accessible and cities of Marion, Cedar Rapids and Iowa City are all close by. Some sites are more level than others. We showed up on a Friday evening and only had 3 sites to chose from, none of them level. We were able to move on Saturday and by Monday the place was half empty. They are very liberal with the check out time - anytime before 8pm. Also, you can not save sites, they must be occupied by the 'camping' unit. We will definitely be staying here again.

We liked this campground. True, most of the sites are not level,there is a drop off from some of the pads to ground and utilities are shared between two sites. We never saw the campground host, the site had a trailer in it but no occupant. Also, the bathrooms were never cleaned during our 8 day stay. The campground is heavily wooded with a few of the sites offering a lake view. The roads are paved ( no dust ) and the park offers a large beach area, marina and pool/weight room area ( for a 5 dollar a day fee )and 18 hole golf course. The town of Cadiz - 12 miles away - has several antique shops and 2 grocery stores. We would stay here again - this is a nice state park with lots more positives than negatives.

We stayed here as members of Coast to Coast. Don't know how much longer they will be associated with this organization as they have been taken over by Thousand Trails. This is a nice park conveniently located to Mammoth Cave ( less than 10 miles ) and Bowling Green ( 20 miles ) which is home to the Corvette Factory & Museum ( tours given ) We were here during a heat wave - temps over 100 - and made good use of the pool & activity pavilion. Their activities director does a great job getting people to 'mingle' with different games being played throughout the day as well as different meals & pot lucks. The sites are well spaced and offer 30 or 50 amp, sewer & water. Some have trees, most don't. We would definitely stay here again.

Let me start by saying that we have been RV'rs for over 20 years and full timers for 3 and we have never had such a bad experience. This entire part of the country is undergoing a drought and we have been staying in a lot of campgrounds that are showing signs of lack of water. While this campground was dry, it also appeared to be very un-loved: warped picnic tables, dead weeds in the sites and sites with little or no gravel left in them. The roads were extremely dusty and also in need of re-graveling. The sites are close together but we are used to that what we couldn't get over was the run-down appearance of the whole campground. (Sorry, words fail me in describing this.) Now the big problem. We had made reservations here using Passport America. After checking in & paying we tried to make heads or tails out of the hand written receipt. (Several sections had been crossed out and re-done.) The half price rate should have been 17.50. We were aware we would pay full price for Friday and Saturday nights. A 9 night stay turned out to be $281.00. You do the math!!!! After several trips back to the office, it was finally discovered that for the 1/2 priced nights, we were charged additionally for the pull-through site & 50 amp, making those nights almost the same amount as the full priced nights. (Interestingly there was no ' add ons ' for the full priced nights.) We found the staff to be confused and un-helpful. We were traveling with our kids and grand daughters and found the playground to be very old and almost unsafe, while the pool was small but clean. This campground is about 15 miles from the Grand Ole Opry and the same distance from downtown Nashville. Our experience here was so bad that after 2 days we left and went to a different campground. (They do not give refunds here, so we ate the nights we didn't us. It was well worth it.) Please believe me when I say that we are not fussy campers. We have stayed all over this country and we have never had an experience like this.

We are big fans of State Parks and try to stay in them whenever possible. This is one of the nicest we have ever been to. All sites are pull throughs, have 30 amp, water and cable TV. About 20 sites have 50 amp service. None have sewer but there is a dump station located on the way out of the park ( be sure to come in with empty tanks ) Depending on how you pull-in your patio will be private or on the roadway. The sites are all large and contain a picnic table, fire pit and tent pad. The campground/park is full of trees which allows you to see you neighbor but still have privacy. The park contains a small visitor center with a bird viewing area as well as a pool ( fee ). There are 2 hiking/biking trails as well as the roadways within the campground. We travel in a 41 foot motorhome and the only negative is that it is a little difficult to make the turn into/out of the various campground loops ( there are 4 of them ) once in the loops there is no problem negotiating the roadways. We had no problems with the directions to this park, they are fairly straight forward ( one turn ) and Downtown Savannah with all it has to offer is only 15 miles away. We will definitely be returning to this park.

I have just re-read all the previous reviews and well I agree this is a nice park I am not as excited about it as everyone else seems to be. The sites are large but not particularly private as your neighbors are in view - we could hear & see our neighbors TV every time we stepped out of our RV. Of the 96 sites 19 have sewer. All sites have some type of electric hookup, 30 or 50 amp, all have cable and water. Wi-fi is being offered for free on a temporary basis ( while being tested per park staff ) and did not work at our site ( #11 ) The dump site is accessible on exiting the park but is located on very sandy soil. It had rained prior to our leaving and we were hesitant to travel through the dump area for fear of sinking or getting stuck. We travel/live in a 41 foot class 'A' and had no problems traveling the roadways to the park as well as within the park. Who ever laid out this park understood the need to angle the sites to make backing into them easier - it was well done. The park offers hiking/biking trails,river access, fishing and swimming. It is also close to Brunswick, St Simon & Jeckyll Island. We will stay here again.

We lucked out and were able to get a 2 night reservation here at the last minute. This is a great campground. Located right on the water and within easy driving distance of Marathon. As previous reviewers have stated there is no shade - yet. This campground was built in 2004 and planted with all native vegetation which is doing well but still growing. The ocean was right out our door, not really a swimming beach as is full of sea grass but very nice to look at. We had no problem getting our coach - 41 feet - into our site and we could have fit in almost any site within the campground. We will definitely stay here again.

Not a lot of choices in the Keys for reasonably priced Campsites as the State Parks are booked months ahead of time. We arrived here on the first day of the 'low season' and paid 65.00 a night for a site that was 125.00 the previous night. The sites are not paved and the interior roads were full of potholes & flooded on the 2 days it rained. The restrooms are small and in need of some updating as is the very small pool. The laundry room was adequate but we were disappointed that the clubhouse & book exchange were already locked up. The good news is that this campground is located right on the water - Gulf on one side, Atlantic on the other. However there is no place to swim. They do have a Marina & docks where you can leave your boat for the season (for a fee). This campground is located right at the southern end of the famous 7 mile bridge ( out of Marathon ) and it took us about 1 hour to drive to Key West. If we ever return to the Keys I don't think we would stay here, we would try for the State Parks or a campground closer to Key West or Key Largo.

This park is managed by Encore/Equity Lifestyles who have a partnership with Thousand Trails. The rate we paid was through an off-season agreement ELS has with TT. Normal rate is 40.00 a night. This is a nice park with a designated area for RV'rs. Sites are grass with concrete patios. There is a pool/spa and clubhouse. There are several grocery stores and other shops in close proximity and Hwy 75 is only 2 miles away. During the off season the office is only open limited hours during the week so if you arrive on the weekend or after hours you are on your own in finding a spot - it was a bit of a challenge for us as they don't leave maps out. We would stay here again.

This is a great campground located less than 6 miles inside Everglades National Park on the CR 9336 side. Flamingo Campground is 38 miles further down the road. This campground is located in the Slash Pines and all sites are surrounded by native plants. It is a very scenic setting whereas Flamingo is out in the open with very little that can be called 'scenic' Another plus for this campground is that it is less than 3 miles from the Royal Palm Visitor Center which was full of wildlife during our stay ( lots of alligators, birds and turtles. ) There is also a campfire circle in the campground with Ranger programs held several times a week. Generator hours at 8am - 8pm and there are about a dozen sites that will accommodate 'big rigs' ( we are 41 feet & had no problems ) The dump station is also easily accessible. We would definitely stay here again.

Nice paved interior roads & gravel camp pads. Dump site is easily accessible for big rigs. The beaches (3 of them ) are great as is the sunset from on top of the old bridge. Yes there is some road noise, but you are in the Key and almost everything is 'just off the hwy' . The only draw back to this park is that it is almost impossible to get a reservation for a site. Reservations can be made up to 11 months in advance. We managed to get a site for 1 nite. (someone must have cancelled) Just for grins I checked the web site & discovered that this site is booked every nite for the next 11 months. So plan ahead if you want to stay here. FYI - if you are a tent camper - Sandspur sites 62-72 are RIGHT ON THE WATER and beautiful.

This is our first stay here so I we are not familiar with how this campground used to look. We found good paved interior roads, sand/dirt sites with 30 amp & water at the sites and an easily accessible dump station. The front campground is pretty wide open but we had small pine trees & palms next to & in front of us. We were able to travel the roadways & park our 41 foot motorhome with no difficulties. The camping area closer to the river has some beautiful smaller sites and was mostly occupied by tenters while the front area was full of RV's. We barely heard the roadway noise and never heard the train during our 1 week stay. We used this park as a jumping off point for several spring training baseball games in Jupiter & Vero Beach as well as sight seeing in Palm Beach. We also enjoyed the river & hiking/biking trails. We will definitely stay here again.

Beautiful, scenic park. There are 2 campground areas. We stayed in the Magnolia section which is closest to the River and the hiking trails. The Florida park reservation system has you chose sites by amenities & size. We chose a site which would accommodate our 40 foot motorhome ( site 31 ) which happened to be at the end of the loop. When we asked if we could go directly to it rather than all the way around the loop we were told no. As the previous reviewer indicated, the roads within the campgrounds are dirt/sand and VERY narrow. We watched everyone, with the exception of tent campers, struggle with the roads. Once at our site we had no problems backing in & setting up, as it was at the end of the loop and had a lot of maneuvering room. The same can't be said for some of the other sites. I did check the big rig access box YES but some people may find the campground roadways too narrow for their comfort level. The sites come with water & 50 amp hookup. The dump station is located along the entrance road and is difficult to access on the way out, again it is very narrow & sandy. But, the reason we chose to stay here is the scenery & seclusion. We will definitely return and next time we will just go directly to our the site and not around the loop!!!

We stayed here for 3 days and this campground filled up every night. We were not asked to read or sign any rules but we do not travel with pets. This campground is close to I10 as well as a very nice Publix Market & golf driving range/par 3 course. It is also convenient to the attractions in Tallahassee ( capitol, Mission San Luis, Antique car museum, etc ) The sites are close together & it looked like some people were having difficulty in getting level. Most people who stayed overnight didn't even unhook as the sites are big enough to accommodate even the largest rig & towed/tow vehicle. The campground is well maintained, WIFI worked well in the rig and it was surprisingly quiet given that it was only 1/2 mile off the freeway. We will stay here again.

This is a gated & private campground available to Coast to Coast or RPI members. The roadways are VERY narrow, we were able to manuver our 40 foot Class 'A' but just barely. Sites are dirt w/concrete patio' & picnic tables. Lots of trees and very quiet. They have an indoor pool & spa as well as an outdoor pool & spa. There is a large club house with areas for both famlies & adults. They have a restaurant which is open on the weekends and is reported to have good food. There are some permanent residents here in RV's as well as Park Model type trailers. The park is about 25 miles east of Mobile, 30 miles North of Gulf Shores and 25 miles west of Pensacola which made it very convenient for sight seeing & visiting.

This campground is part of the Coast to Coast Good Neighbor Program. They receive $12 when a reservation is made through this system. When we arrived they 'required' another $10 per night. On our first night they parked us 'out in a field' as our site had not been vacated ( still had to pay the additional $10 ) Once our site was vacated we were directed into it by 2 people giving completely different directions (from the front & rear of coach ) which caused a fair amount of confusion. When we stopped and exited the coach to talk to the 'directors' we were screamed at!!! Our site was a swampy god awful mess as it had been raining for several weeks . When we went to dump our tanks everything flushed back up on us as the sceptic system was either full or flooded. Also, the 'Laundry room' was 2 rusted washers & 2 rusted Dryers located in a damp and moldy back porch. Last but not least, this campground backs right up to Highway 10 and is very noisy. I would stay at a truck stop or rest area before I visited this campground again!!!

Nice campground with large pullthru gravel sites as well as gravel interior roads. It wasn't dusty while we were here but it had been raining prior to our arrival. The pool was clean but he outdoor pavilion could use some work. The campground is located about 1 mile off the freeway and is fairly quiet. There area some large trees scattered througout the park but we had no problem picking up a satellite signal. Our Verizon Aircard also worked here on Broadband speed. We would stay here again, it is a good 'homebase' for exploring the sites of Baton Rouge and the surrounding area.

We noticed only 106 sites, of those, 62 are permanently occupied ( mostly by weekend visitors) with that said,this is a nice campground. It is well maintained, the spaces are large and everything is very clean. The staff was very helpful & friendly. It is located off the freeway about .8 of a mile with a large state visitor center located at the same exit (#121 of Hwy 10). Very easy to get to and from and conveniently located for seeing the sights in the area. We would stay here again.

Unlike other reviewers we had no difficulty getting into our pullthru site. Yes, they are narrow and the Patios are positioned in a strange spot, but the site was level & plenty long enough for us. The facilities were well maintained w/the washers & dryers costing only $1 each. WiFi worked very well in our coach, but our Verizon Aircard also worked on broadband speed. Also, unlike other reviewers, we found plenty to do in the Beaumont area and received great direcions & information from the staff behind the desk here. Lots of museums in town as well as in Port Arthur & 4 nice golf courses within 10 minutes of Campground. We would stay here again.

Easy access from I10. We had no problem getting our 41 foot motorhome w/tow vehicle attached into a site. Unlike other reviewers we were not bothered by truck noise. This was a convenient & reasonably priced pit stop for us on our way from Las Cruces,NM to Houston, TX. We would stop here again.

We used this park as a home base for trips into Portland and the Columbia River Gorge area. It is convenient to both. The outer loop contains back in sites. The side of the loop along hillside has no satellite reception, the other side of the loop backs up to the Tualatin River. The middle section is pull-through sites. As other reviewers have stated, the sites are pretty close together. They are all paved and have 50 amp, sewer, water and cable. The bathrooms & laundry were both clean & well maintained. The staff was very helpful and pride in ownership really shows in this park. We would definitely stay here again.

This is a great campground. We fulltime and try to stay at State & National parks as often as possible. We have been repeatedly impressed with the Oregon State Park System. During the off season only the 'B' loop of this campground is open. About 1/2 of the 34 site are available by reservation. The hookup sites are all paved w/full hookups (50 amp). The 'B' loop does not have any large trees which worked out well for Satellite TV. We also were pleasantly surprised that our cellphones & Verizon internet service worked well here. A big plus to us is that all the Oregon State Parks recycle cans, bottles and paper. This park is close to the towns of Newburg & Woodburn ( which has a large outlet mall ). There are several good golf courses close by ( a plus for the husband ). Portland is also within a short drive The park itself has miles of hiking & biking trails as well as a very nice visitor center. 16.00 is the off-season rate, in season the park charge 20.00 for hookup sites. We can not recommend this park highly enough.

Free Wi-Fi is a definite plus. They also have free cable if you want it - we use a satellite which had no problem finding a signal. Sites are paved & terraced, giving sites a small grass area between them. We stayed here using Enjoy America & got the first night for 1/2 price. It is convenient to the freeway ( I5 ) and downtown Redding. It is VERY noisy. If you stay here be sure and have dinner at Jacks Grill, it's a local favorite, and is located downtown. ( the staff was not able to provide directions to it however, we had to find it on our own )

We arrived early on a Friday and were advised of an available full hookup site w/50 amp service. This site had been vacated by one of the campground hosts. There are 17 electrical sites but we found all of them to be too small to accommodate our 36 foot motorhome. The sites in this campground are designated for RV's or for tents. The RV sites are all pull throughs while the tent sites are all back ins. There are a total of 7 loops with a good mix of site types in each loop. All loops contain a restroom w/flush toilets. There are pay showers located at the entrance to the campground along with a small store and the Annie Springs gift shop and Italian Buffet restaurant. The sites are clean and well maintained and the Park is a true treasure.

We really enjoyed this park and all the sights available in and around Silverton. We stayed under Enjoy America and paid 1/2 price for the 3 nights we stayed here. The normal rate is 25.00. The majority of the sights are large pull thrus, they are mostly level and have an area of grass separating them. All sites have 50 amp service, sewer & water. There are no large trees as the park is only 6 years old - but there are some small trees planted between most of the sites. The free wi-fi was quite a treat. We had good service in our rig. The laundry room, although small ( 5 washers, 5 dryers ) was very clean and reasonably priced.

This is a beautiful campground. We arrived on a Wednesday without reservations and obtained the last available hookup site for 2 nites. They had no space available for the weekend. There are 44 hook up sites located in a loop, all sites are back in and vary in size. There is a second loop of about 50 sites that contains a few smaller hook up sites with the rest being designated tent sites. The sites are well maintained and the camp host will sell you a large portion of wood ( in a wheel barrow which you take to your site ) for a very reasonable price. The park contains numerous hiking trails of various lengths & difficulty. There is a 4 mile loop paved bike path as well as a swim beach. The old lodge contains a snack shop as well as a small gift store. This park is located about 18 miles off of hwy 5 along a scenic back road. It was slow going but quite scenic and we had no problems traveling the road in our 36 foot motorhome w/our tow vehicle attached ( we are over 63 feet as we travel attached down the road )

We stayed here over Labor Day weekend, arriving on Wednesay. We travel/live in a 38 foot motorhome and there were only 2 sites that could accommodate us and our tow vehicle. Both of these site were at the newer Elk Flat campground which is a little over a mile away from the lake. The campground does offer flush toilets and pay showers as well as fresh water and a dump station. The campground is well maintained and peaceful, even after it filled up for the long weekend. It is close enough to Ely to make a visit into town easy. Also close by is Ward Charcoal Ovens State Park which is definitely worth visiting.

We stayed here at a discounted rate through Coast to Coast resorts Good Neighbor Program. This park is a little over a mile off of Hwy 80 and close to downtown Winnemucca. We were pleasantly surprised at check in when we were given a number of coupons for discounted drinks/dinner/gambling in town as well as recommendations for dinner. ( It reminded us a little of the 'old' Vegas ). The park itself has some trees and a lot of pull thru sites. There is a nice pool and store/laundry room. The interior roads are gravel.

This campground is located inside the National Park in the Ponderosa Pines. A few of the sites sit on the rim of the canyon with a limited view of it. There is a trail out of the campground to the Lodge (1.5 miles one way) that has some spectacular canyon views. All of the sites are pull throughs and will accommodate any size unit. We had reserved 2 nights and had no problems adding a third after we arrived. The campground has a dump station w/fresh water, pay showers, laundry and a store which should have anything you may have forgotten. Generator hours are from 7-9 am & 6-8 pm and the sites are shaded enough that our solar charger was not able to recharge our batteries.

This is quite possibly the nicest State Park we have ever stayed in. All sites have a picnic table, fire pit, ramada & shepherds hook for your lantern. The sites are raked after they are vacated and they are located in an oasis of trees. There is only one pull thru but we had no problems finding a site to fit our coach ( 38 feet ) and tow vehicle. We arrived planning on spending just one night but enjoyed this park and the surrounding area so much we stayed for 3 nights. Another bonus for us was that our cell phones & internet worked while camped here which came as quite a surprise since it is literally in the middle of nowhere!

We stayed at this campground during the Montana State Fair. The campground was busy but was never full. There is an older section to the park which has large trees & shade and a newer section with no shade & small trees. The restrooms are old single wide trailer & the shower stall was actually smaller than what we have in our motorhome. They do have a small laundry room on site but no other amenities. The staff was very helpful & knowledgeable about the area. There are a few things to do in Great Falls ( the Lewis & Clark Visitor Center & CM Russell home & gallery ) and this park is convenient to both of them. Nothing fancy but easy access and clean.

This is a nice park and convenient to the sights in the area. The spaces are big enough to accommodate the largest rigs and each space has a small lawn area & picnic table. The only problem we had was that our cell phones did not work while in the park - we use a Verizon card to access the internet and were not able to while staying here. We felt that after paying $32.00 a night Wi-Fi should have been included. ( They charge $4 a day for the service. )
