As per previous reviews, the place is a little tired, but still pretty OK. Nice long pull through sites, though we had to do quite a bit of leveling. Handy to downtown Kingston. Also, very pretty, right on the canal. Being so late in the season, we didn't use the showers, so can't comment. Roads were a little muddy with the bad weather, but just surface stuff. Still solid. Nothing that would bury your rig. The biggest disappointment was the WiFi. Once again, third party provider, so any problems are not the park's problems. Signal was weak, even with a Lynx booster, and bandwidth was pitiful. Like so many parks, they haven't got it that "full service sites" these days needs to include good internet. Staff was friendly and helpful. Gave us a real welcome feeling. We would stay here again if in the area.

As we planned our visit to Ottawa so late in the season, we thought it best to call ahead to confirm that the park would be open, and to make a reservation. Unfortunately when we arrived, they had forgotten about us, and closed up for the season. They directed us to another campground 2 miles down the road which they believed was still open. Driving the loop to get out, we found the place was a bit run down, so perhaps it was for the best that we were sent elsewhere.

OK spot. Folks that run it are super though. They took us in after another park with whom we had a reservation, decided to close up early for the winter. A lot to be said for hospitality. Pull through sites are short. Our 30 foot motor home didn't leave room for our car, even disconnected. Also, not the most level sites we've seen. The washrooms, showers are rustic, but well maintained. Wireless internet is solid, and fast, but is $5.00 extra per day. (Not included in the rate quoted above.) Oh, and the park is on one of the approach routes for Ottawa airport. It can be a little loud first thing in the morning, especially the short hop, prop planes. Still, overall, not a bad spot, and handy to the city. We would probably come here again if in the area.

We would rate this a 5, but the location makes it just slightly more desirable. Sites are a mix of scruffy grass, sand, and gravel, but do have beautiful mature trees. Pool was closed this late in the season, but looked well kept. Good kid facilities. Washrooms/showers were modern and in good shape, and generally were kept clean. (Floors were dirty one day, but we had had 12 hours of rain, so it was to be expected dirt would track in.) WiFi was disappointing. Although we always had a strong signal, the connection was always slow, and frequently was reset. It looks like there are quite a few season/permanent residents. We were back away from the office, and had no problems with traffic noise on Sands Road. We would probably stay here again if we had to, but would probably look elsewhere first.

We didn't get a chance to use much of the park's facilities, as the weather turned bad on arrival, and it poured. Seemed like a pretty nice park. Washrooms/showers were clean. Showers were a generous size, but had no door or curtain between the change area and shower, so clothes were at risk of showering with you. 30 second push button lukewarm water is not so great. Shower heads are fixed, and can't be adjusted/rotated. Office staff were really friendly. Wi-Fi was pretty good, as promised. Some connection issues, but we attribute that to the exceptional rainfall. The rest of the time, Wi-Fi worked fine. Overall, this seemed to be a pretty nice park. We chose to use our coach shower, but that's no big deal. We would return here, and would feel comfortable sending others here, after informing them of the limitations.

Mixed thoughts on this park. It is quite large, and had a lot of permanent/seasonal rigs, and cottages. Our site was in the middle of these. Good recreational facilities. Showers were older, but well maintained. Only two washers, two driers, which is inadequate for a campground this size. It's a mature campground, with lots of nice big shade trees. Alas, it also shows signs of age, and could use a face lift. The wooden deck at our site had rotten sagging planks, that someone will fall through one day soon. Likewise, the picnic table planks, being unfinished, were warped and split. Didn't trust it either. My most common complaint about campsites applied here too. Too many places just don't get how important WiFi is to travelers these days. WiFi here was office only. Considering how cheap WiFi repeaters are these days, it's hard to understand why parks don't pony up a few hundred dollars to cover the entire park. Not a bad pitstop, and convenient to the Bass Island Miller ferries, if you're going to Put-In-Bay.

To be fair, we arrived in some unusually wet weather. What we saw were many grass sites submerged under large puddles. One site was in the process of swallowing a picnic table. Fortunately, there were some semi-graveled sites available, which were not too bad for level, and didn't require a life jacket. Lots of mature trees. "Free" internet is available at the office, which was closed from 11:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. But for $9.00 per day, you can have internet in your coach from a third party provider. Showers were rustic, with old pipes and laundry tub style taps, but were very clean. Change and shower areas were a bit small. Park has a nice beach and kids play area, with a pretty view of the Mackinac Bridge. Overall, not a bad park, but not a good port in a storm. (Unless your unit floats.)

We had had car troubles along the way, and so had to change our booking dates several times, eventually reducing our stay to only one night. The manager was really cooperative and understanding with these changes. Actually, he was terrific. The campground really is right on the lake. Even from out pull-through one row back from the shore, we had spectacular views. Sites are pretty basic (grass and some gravel), but are reasonably sized. Washroom/showers are a beautiful log construction building, with clear finished pine interiors, and were spotlessly clean. We found this to be a very friendly little place. We would stay here again in a heartbeat.

This is one of the nicest parks we've stayed in in a year of traveling. The park staff are super friendly. Showers and washrooms are well designed, and spotlessly maintained. Lots of trees, well manicured landscaping. We had to extend our stay because of car repair problems, and they generously offered to switch us to the weekly rate. The only minor issue we had was with Wi-Fi. We had asked for a location with good reception, and were placed near the office. The only time we had a reception issue was when a coach pulled into the arrival parking area. However, I have to conclude that if that was enough to interrupt reception this close to the office, more distant sites might experience poorer reception. On balance, we would certainly return here again, and would highly recommend it to others.

Nice campground. Spacious sites, entirely on grass. Lots of activities right out of the park; bike trail, tubing, kayaking, etc. Lanesboro is a really pretty little town, and well worth a visit. Although near highway 16, road noise was no issue. Our only complaints were: 1. Coin operated showers, with poor shower heads that make it difficult to rinse. Please just build the price into the campground fee. 2. Advertised site wide WiFi could not be received at our site, or anywhere nearby outside. In fairness, many campgrounds don't get the importance of this feature to modern travelers. 3. For a decent sized campground, there are only two washers, and one was out of service.

This a very simple, but pretty park. Sites are a decent length and fairly level, though not very wide. Lots of good sized trees. As the name suggests, it is a very kid oriented park. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Showers are very clean, but shower/change area is cramped. Our two main beefs were: 1. Not enough gravel, so parking was soft and muddy when it rained. 2. Unreliable Wi-Fi. Our signal varied between fair and good to their wireless, but the internet connection was frequently reset or unavailable. We would probably look for another campsite if passing this way again.

Pretty location, lots of mature trees, quiet, and handy to town. Laundry facilities are limited (two washers, four driers), but never seemed to be busy. Showers and washrooms well kept. Change area for showers a little tight, and would have benefited from better lighting, and having more than one hook for all your clothes and towel. Sites are pretty level, decent gravel, and grass. Internet was the best we've had in a year of traveling. Not only a very strong wireless signal, but also great bandwidth. We uploaded 10 pictures at a time to our journal in under two minutes. Kudos to Lake RV for recognizing the importance of this service, which so many parks have yet to catch onto. Water connection for our site was closer to the front of the site, and so required an extension hose. No big deal for those who travel prepared. We would certainly stop here again, and recommend it to others.

This is a basic park, but well maintained. Park operators are super friendly. Washrooms/showers were basic, but are kept very clean. This would not be a destination for us, but we would certainly stop here again if passing through, if only to attend the evening ice creem social that we missed.

This park is well laid out, with all sites having mature trees. Some of the best shower facilities we have seen. Ten or more private rooms, each with changing area and shower. All had track matting, and were kept very clean, and the whole washroom/shower area was kept comfortably heated. Facility maintenance is generally very good. Most staff were friendly. Only six miles from the Yellowstone west entrance. No highway noise. Some sites have a concrete patio pad and newer picnic tables. Sites are reasonably level, but you might need to search around a bit for the magic spot. All site parking areas we saw were gravel, with about 1/4 of the gravel that would have been required to do the job correctly. Grass picnic areas were likewise lacking in decent coverage. The result was sites which were unsightly at best, and mud holes when wet. The poor condition of the sites appears to be the result of neglect, an exception to the general standards of maintenance we saw in the rest of the park. Perhaps site overhaul is just not in budget. We were also very unhappy with the WiFi. Never great, but sometimes usable, it was highly unreliable. It took five efforts to get this review up. When asked, despite advertising site wide WiFi, the staff said it's really only reliable in the laundry room. Because it's been contracted out to a third party, the office can offer no help, but to suggest you call the provider. This is a bit of a catch 22, as AT&T cell coverage here is little or none, and the pay phones, still shown on the park's map, have been removed. Call how? Overall, it is a pretty park, has good kid facilities, and has a pretty good location. But, for $50.00/night, even with a KOA membership discount, camping in mud with poor WiFi makes this a very poor value. We would not camp here again, nor would we send others here.

This is a nice little park. Very tidy and well maintained. Decent sized trees. Very pretty. Sites are gravel, but pretty level. People who run it are very nice. Showers and laundry are kept extremely clean. Lots of train traffic, and they do lay on the horn, but it's distant. You don't even hear the cars, just the horn. So unless you're a really light sleeper who keeps the windows open at night, should not be a problem. Good location to do Glacier, Whitefish, and Big Mountain. We would stay here again if doing trails on the east side of Glacier.

Location is the big thing for this park. You're minutes from downtown Coeur D'Alene, and there's lots of water activities to do from the island. Washrooms are modern and clean. Laundry facilities are the best we've seen yet. Sites are gravel, narrow, and not completely level, but are OK. Staff are friendly and helpful. The park is well maintained. We would stay here again if traveling through this area.

Close to being an RV resort. Very well maintained. Premium sites are worth the little extra. Washrooms, showers, etc. were all modern and clean. Use caution entering the park, as the slope is a hitch catcher. (Note the many scars in the pavement.) Office staff were kind and helpful. Major shopping right across the road. What's not to like here?

Large park, but well laid out and well maintained. We were unable to obtain premium spots, but the sites assigned were still very nice. Washroom/showers are modern, and kept clean. Office staff was unfriendly. Still, on balance, this is a good park, a beautiful area, and worth a visit. Oh, Winchester Bay appears to be the dune buggy capital of the world.

This is a wonderful park, just far enough off the I-5 to be quiet, but close enough to be handy for getting to Olympia. The sites are spacious, in a beautiful woodland setting, and quite private from the other sites. When they laid out this place out, they obviously made a conscious choice to opt for beautiful spaces over MORE spaces. It's a place designed by campers, for campers. The office staff (owners) are about the nicest people you could ever meet. It is obvious they are doing something they enjoy, and it shows in their attitude. In almost a year on the road, this is the nicest woodland park we have stayed in. There is an organic composting operation beside the park, but in the four days and nights we were here, we had no issues with noise or smell. We would come back here, or send people here, with NO hesitation.

The sites varied widely, from gravel driveway to wooded. We were in the woods, and the site was beautiful! Showers were OK, but required you to push the button every 20 seconds. Sort of annoying. Laundry room was fine, and most machines were working. WiFi was pretty flaky. Some PCs never got on, some got on, then couldn't later, speed was not great even when connected. Overall, still a nice park, but book ahead for a nicer site.

What a gem of a place, right on the Rogue River. If you visit is planned, be sure to ask for a river front site. It's a small park, with only 6 river sites, so book ahead. The folks who run it are very friendly. They encourage even the short term visitors to attend cocktail hour on the patio, where we found the regulars and seasonals to be very friendly. Laundry facilities were good. Shower water pressure was a little troublesome. I think the washing machines affected the pressure, hence you could be chilled or broiled without notice! Over all, we would recommend this park. It certainly was the best of the three on this shore.

We arrived to overflowing garbage bins beside the office. Although we had booked through KOA central reservations, and had a confirmation number, our reservation was not "in their system". We were fortunate that they had one site left to give us. This KOA obviously crams in as many campers as possible to maximize revenue. The place was a carnival. Add to that the teenage boys who haunted the shower/washroom building area, where you would not want to send your teenage daughter alone, and you begin to get the picture. Think "Trailer Park Boys", and you're getting warm. Oh, and the ocean front camping? That's tents on the beach, $50.00 per. In 9 months on the road, this was our worst campground, even including Baja Mexico.

An excellent park, as per previous reviews. Well manicured, well managed, well maintained. Owners were friendly and had a great sense of humor. Their pride shows in every little detail of the park. Our site was not very far inside the park, but it was very quiet despite the nearby highway. We always try to present a balance of pros and cons when we do park reviews. We couldn't think of a real con to include in this one. We did stop short of a 10 because the gravel surfaces, and the fact that not all sites were level. Still, at the end of the day, we would send anyone here, and would happily return.

This is a cute little park, right in town, handy to everything. Despite being right on the 89A, road noise at night was minimal, and even daytime it was only the odd truck or Harley that we noticed. Gravel sites are fairly level. Most sites have some shade protection, and the landscaping is simple, but neat and attractive. Washrooms and showers are modern and kept clean. Pool was also well maintained. Our site was small, but well shaded, and very pretty. The only downside was the view of the resident trailer next door (a park employee). The small patio area would have been OK, but for the close up view of their under trailer junk storage, and the septic hose winterized with all manner of aged salvaged material, complete with catch bucket for leakage.

The park has two main sections; the open unshaded area out front (with nice mountain views), and the well shaded rear (with limited or no mountain views). It's a matter of personal preference. Being here in late June, we preferred the shady sites. The park is very well kept, and the staff are super friendly and helpful. We were initially assigned a site in "Hell's Kitchen". The guys who led us to our site took it on themselves to try to get us a shady site. Despite being nearly fully booked up, they were able to accommodate us in a really pretty shade location for the week. Washrooms, showers, and laundry were top notch, and kept really clean. There were only a few things that caused us to rate this at an 8, rather than a 9 or 10. Hookups are shared between sites, and each post has only one 30 amp and one 50 amp, each assigned to one site. So while there might be a site available which is large enough for your rig, it might only have 30 amp. Also, this arrangement means you share a grassy picnic area with your neighbor. There is no AT&T coverage (despite the commercials), though Verizon does reach here. There is also no pay or courtesy phone, so you have to drive to town to make even a local call. Finally, the WI-FI was OK, but the bandwidth was poor. We tried to use Skype as a solution to the phone issue, but couldn't get a decent connection. (The wireless signal was excellent, but the carrying capacity was poor.) On balance, I would still recommend this park to anyone planning a stay in the area. Just be sure to book ahead to get the type of site you want, and be prepared for some communications challenges.

Paved, well maintained, clean, and good location. This is a good and safe place to stay. Washrooms/showers are in great shape. W-IFI pretty good; water, cable, etc. no problems. We don't have a bad word to say about this place or the staff. But it is basic parking RVing, with some decent facilities, not a "park" setting. We would stay here again if visiting Reno.

Our site was over closer to the office, farther from the highway. It was not quiet, particularly outside in the busy daytime traffic, but was no problem for sleeping, even with one light sleeper. Sites were pretty level, paved, and well maintained. Because it's so new, trees are small, and it still has a bit of the parking lot feel to it. All grounds, including grass spaces are well maintained. In fact, grounds maintenance was almost over the top. There was never a day that someone wasn't cutting grass, or trimming, or leaf blowing, or doing something loud and motorized! Still, kudos for their efforts to keep this place looking top notch, which it really does. Washrooms and showers were also excellent. Front desk staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful. Park is in a great location to access local attractions, shopping, etc. I would send anyone here with complete confidence.

We stayed here for close to three weeks. Given the choice, we would probably never leave. Well, maybe by winter. Watch carefully if approaching from Loveland, as the park is on the south side of the river, over a bridge, and well treed. It's easy to miss, and a sign nearer the road would help. That said, it is a gem of a park. It's an older place, with gravel sites, which are reasonable size, and fairly level. We had a site along the Big Thompson River, which was literally 15 feet behind our coach. Beautiful (if sometimes messy) mature shade trees. Wi-Fi was excellent, with good bandwidth for uploading pictures to friends back home. Washrooms and showers were immaculate. Office staff was friendly and helpful. The park was generally quiet and peaceful. Short of modernizing, (i.e. re-surfacing the roads and sites, etc), there is not a thing to change here. And to be honest, I don't think I would even want that. It's an RV park, not a new polished RV resort. We absolutely loved it, just exactly as it is.

The shady part of this place might be some of the full time trailer residents. Make no mistake, this is a trailer park with some RV visitor spaces. The place is older, so the sites tend to be smaller. As a result, there usually isn't room for your coach and toad, or fifth wheel and truck. Vehicles have to park along both sides of the site roads, so maneuvering a rig can be a challenge. On the plus side, as an older park, there are many mature trees and shrubs. That helps keep the coach cooler, and looks really nice. The park entrance is only 50 feet from the business 80, so noise is a BIG issue. Ask for a spot towards the back if you are a lite sleeper. Wi-Fi may not be as good, but the road noise is much less. Washrooms/showers/laundry are in good shape, but the septic drainage is not. Facility availability was on again/off again from day to day. Of course, they informed us of this AFTER we paid for two weeks. Repairs followed the finger in the dike approach, so every few days they would dig up a section of pipe, things would work for a few hours, then we would all have to go unwashed again for a few days. For a problem like this, DIG A TRENCH, NOT A HOLE! We might return on a one night, lets see basis, but until I saw a better effort, I would not send anyone here.

Location, location, location. Nice park. Ask for an ocean view (west) site. View is spectacular! Staff was very nice. There is an adults only hot tub. (Bonus!) Great location for exploring this beautiful stretch of coast. A little pricey, but hey. You're in Malibu. What do you expect for a location view like this?? On our re-visit list.

This is a nice little park. Lots of full time residents, but well kept up. Visitor area is not as pretty, but still nice. Paved, level, decent space, with picnic table. Once the young trees get going, the visitor area will be even nicer. Staff were really friendly. Very welcoming place. Close to the highway, but because it is below grade, road noise was not an issue. Likewise for the railway behind the park. Infrequent train traffic, rolling noise, no horns. Beautiful hills view, cottonwood seed blizzards, etc. Would visit again, and send friends here. Handy to San Jose.

This park is relatively new, and is being well maintained in order to keep it looking sharp. Facilities are top notch. One small drawback, was that some sites don't have space to park your toad. You park it in a spacious lot in front of the office. Not a big deal, unless it happens to be raining when you need your car. Great location to explore local wineries and the central coast. We would send anyone here with confidence.

This park is all about location. It's a great place to get to everything from. The campground itself has no more charm than a department store parking lot. All asphalt, sites are fairly small. Still, it is clean, well maintained, and secure. Staff were friendly, and went out of their way to be helpful. The showers were clearly constructed for pigmys. (Assuming privacy was even a consideration.) At 6'3", I have to duck significantly to get below the shower rail bar. Once standing up straight again, I am looking down into the stalls on either side of me. Who builds these things?? Our main complaint was with the wireless internet. The wireless coverage itself (i.e. signal) was decent, but the internet connection via wireless was very hit and miss. Often there were long delays trying to log into sites like Hotmail, and Skype was a total write off. Access was changed from open to security enabled during our stay, but with no noticeable improvement in service. All in all, not a bad park for exploring San Diego, but with minimal facilities. If internet is important, consider somewhere else.

This was a short pit stop stay for us. A little of a hike from the highway, but worth it not to listen to the freeway at night. The people at reception were all over themselves to be warm and welcoming. Showers were great. Pull through was not big enough for our coach and toad, but there was space near by for the car. We were impressed, and happy with our stay, and would return without hesitation. Kudos to Desert Holiday RV for their friendly attitude.

The existing ratings are a little dated, so perhaps that explains the differences in what we found during our stay. The location and views are stunningly beautiful. The lake itself, and the surrounding rugged mountain terrain would be hard to top. Of course you don't get to a spot like that off the expressway, so the road is certainly a twisty challenge, but definitely manageable for any experienced driver. Sites vary considerably. Those close to the water are barely more than parking spaces, while others set further back are spacious, with gravel parking and large concrete patio pads. Staff were super-friendly. On arrival, they gave us a list of available sites and a map, and let us look around in our toad so we could pick the site that suited us. We reported an issue with the septic hookup one evening, they were at the site and had it sorted out first thing the next morning. Biggest drawback was the washrooms/showers. They are older and pretty primitive, including being unheated. Showers are poorly leveled concrete, with no separate change area. If you're wearing long pants, there is little chance that you'll get them on dry. Finally, although the men's building appeared to be pretty clean, there was always a strong urine smell inside. I never figured out why. Overall, we would return for the location alone. The welcoming staff make it even more appealing. If you use your own coach shower and washroom facilities, then no worries.

I grew up watching the Duke westerns, and imagined that any park bearing his name would be rich in classy, old west ambiance. (Along the lines of Rose Valley RV Ranch in Silver City, but more so.) The only thing it was rich in was the smell of cattle manure from the several HUGE stockyards a mile down the road. The extent of visible improvements to make it a park, was the placement of small rocks to delineate the boundaries of each site. We've stayed in other desert sites, but this place is desolate and depressing.The Showers and washrooms were clean, but unheated. The shower stalls have no change section, so you step out into the open to dry and dress. (And, presumably, to display yourself to anyone around when someone opens the outside access door.) We planned to stay a week over the holidays, but one look (and one smell) convinced us otherwise. The woman in the office was polite and very understanding, and made no issue over our change in plans. I wonder that this might not have been the first such occurrence. I could only recommend this as a park and fly site, and then only if the wind is right.

Pretty basic desert gravel stop near the highway. Still, it was attractive. Clean, well maintained, and the owners were super friendly and helpful. For us, that makes all the difference. Not a destination camp perhaps, but we would stay again if passing through.

If friendly, fun, and welcoming weigh heavily in your evaluation of a park, then you will understand why we rate this park 9 out of 10. We could hardly bring ourselves to leave! The park is desert gravel, but with far more vegetation than most that use this description. We found it very pretty, and worth taking lots of pictures. The owners are the most hospitable we have ever met. These people have got it right, and we salute their success in making this such a fun and welcoming park to visit. The shower and laundry facilities are a little old, but they are functional, and kept very clean. If they were updated, this park would get the first 10 rating we have ever given. We would return in a heartbeat, and would confidently send anyone here who asked us for a park recommendation the Tucson area. Would that we could find more like this one in our travels!

This is a very well kept park. The owners have sacrificed potential income space to provide pleasant landscaping ambiance instead. Sites have a private patio area. Showers were the best we've seen to date, and spotless. Laundry facilities were top notch. We had excellent Wi-Fi connectivity, even though we were close to being farthest away from the office. A very quiet and pretty park.

Being northerners, when we first pulled in we thought the park rather barren and close packed. Once we were parked, and looked around us a bit more, we realized it was magnificently landscaped, but just in a New Mexico desert style which was unfamiliar to us. The grounds are extremely well cared for. Our hosts were extremely friendly and helpful. Shower are modern, clean, and spacious. (I am 6' 4" and 230 lbs. I like to have some space.) Clubhouse is nice with coffee and a phone for local and calling card calls. All facilities heated to be comfortable even on December nights. The Elephant Butte Lake state park is conveniently less than a mile away. T or C hot spring spas are 5 to 10 minutes. Wi-Fi worked fine, but a little slow. (Uploading at 110 kbps.) All in all, a very nice park which we would come back to again without hesitation.

Staff are really nice people. Washrooms/showers are the best we've seen yet. Clean, warm, and very well maintained. Handy to access the town. Visitor sites are at the back of the park, backing onto a warehouse, but noise was minimal. Visitor sites are sparse. Ours had no picnic table, nor even room for one. Definitely no room for outdoor living. We had to dodge a hydro pole on our site, which further reduced our space. The worst though, was the mud. After a light snow melted, the thin layer of fine gravel did little to keep my shoes from sinking into the red mud below all around our coach, and along the road to the main building. Bottom line, an OK "park and fly" stop, provided the weather is dry.

We would rate the facility as better than average for KOA. Close packed sites, as expected for a suburban park, but well maintained and pretty. Good gate security. (Which I presume means it is needed.) While the grounds staff we met were friendly and helpful, the front desk staff made it clear they were there under duress. And God forbid you should come in to ask where to find a Wal-Mart or a hardware store, as obviously you haven't done your greeting package homework. Maybe the grounds and desk staff should switch jobs. Handy to downtown by bus or not, next time we stop elsewhere and drive ourselves.

This is a very pretty little park, from entrance all the way to the back. Lot's of trees, decorative stone, plants, a little stream, even a pond. Site was hard pack, but level and clean. Hook ups were fine. Cable was ~ 200 channels. The park managers could not have been kinder to us, and their friendliness was what would certainly bring us back if we were ever through here again. Minor issues for our style of travel; no wireless internet, no on line registration, and and payment by cash or cheque only. Still, we're not so wired that we can't contend with doing business the old fashioned way, especially to enjoy the hospitality of this lovely park and the managers.

A lot of work is being done to upgrade this facility. New, heavy-duty level concrete pads, updated power supplies, new sod, fishing pier, etc. Wonderful view directly over the bay. We were on the move, so only stayed one night, but would like to have stayed longer. Owners were super friendly.

Arrived late and left early (in snow), so not much of a chance to evaluate the park. Off season use was self serve, which saved us a Wal-Mart dry camping night. We were able to arrange our stay by phone, when not much looked available. Site was a little soft, but I've seen (and sunk) in worse.

This park is pretty, well laid out, clean, and well maintained. The people were friendly and helpful. The washrooms and showers are clean and well maintained. I would send anyone I know here without hesitation.
