We always enjoy staying here. We have stayed here about 10 times since 2003 and the place hasn’t changed, well, maybe for the better. Always clean, well manicured and well maintained. I felt guilty using the restroom because it was so clean. Sure there are trains that go by, but not annoying and neither are the trucks that go by. About the only negative thing I can say is the pool was colder than I like, but that didn’t stop anyone else from enjoying it. Price hasn’t changed in years. Will definitely stop again on our way through.

I see nothing wrong with this park as some of the other reviewers have. People that complain about security must be planning to do something wrong. I welcome it, it make me feel safe. There is lots of pavement, which in my opinion keeps things clean. Each site has a tree and there is grass between you and your neighbors behind you. I found the staff to be very friendly and accommodating. The trailer park that you drive past to get to the RV Park is old and rundown looking but that is the last you see or hear from it. You won’t even know it’s there once in the RV Park. The only down side is the sewer hookup is in the middle of your neighbors patio area and your neighbors is in yours however there was no smell or mess. It was a trip hazard though. Why they couldn’t put your sewer hookup in your site I don’t know.

This is a nice, new, clean RV park. The trees are young so there is no shade. The roads and level parking pads are paved blacktop with red rock gravel and a small tree between sites. There is a couple of what they call Companion Sites where you can park door to door with friends. The price was reasonable and they offer Good Sam, AAA, weekly, and monthly discounts. This is part of the Grand Canyon Railway Hotel so you get all the privileges of the hotel. They have a shuttle that will take you anywhere on the property such as the Hotel or Grand Canyon Railway Train station however you are within walking distance of the train, hotel, and downtown. Being new the restrooms are very clean. The only down side is it is right next to the train tracks and a couple of freight trains come through in the middle of the night.

After reading the reviews here we also took advantage of the 5 nights free. Absolutely No Pressure. They briefly stated, if I was interested to come to the office and talk to a sales person. That’s it! This is a high scale resort as all Outdoor Resorts are. Class A coaches 30 feet and over only, however I didn’t see any coach age restrictions. I did not experience any snobbishness at all. The staff was VERY friendly and accommodating. Since there are very few owners there this time of year I can’t speak to their attitude. Clubhouse, Pools, and laundry were immaculate. Their 50s style diner, open for breakfast and lunch only, puts out a great breakfast. The owner even came over and spoke with us. They will be closing for a couple of months probably due to lack of business this time of year. Negatives are: The road construction can make it a bit of a challenge to get there especially during heavy traffic times. Views are hampered by 8 foot walls around the resort. Along with the walls, the massive entrance gates and guard shack gives the resort a prison feel. Water pressure was next to nothing when sprinklers were on, they are working on that. At $60 to $130 a night we probably won’t be staying here again.

This is a nice campground. If you plan to come to Zion, leave your car home and stay here. There is a free town shuttle that picks you up in front of the campground and drops you off at the park entrance where you can ride a free park shuttle. The campground sites are dirt and the roads are blacktop. Lots of trees for shade. Nice views of the Zion Monoliths from your campsite. Only ½ mile from Zion Park entrance. We had a full hookup 50 amp site. Our 36 foot motorhome fit with plenty of room for the car, fire pit, picnic table, and grill. Staff is real friendly. The Virgin River that cut Zion Canyon runs beside the campground where you can tube, float, or just sit in or beside on it’s shaded banks. Tube rentals are right across the street. Campground store is well stocked and reasonable priced. So comfortable that you almost forget about Zion. Will stay again.

Nice park for an overnighter. There is Nothing to do in Leeds. This park is close to and easy to get to from I-15. No noise from the Interstate. A few permanents, some with rundown rigs. Pull throughs are nice, easy to get into and out of, with shade trees and grass between sites. We will stay here again.

This park is OK and the staff is very friendly. It has more of a trailer park atmosphere than an RV park. There are mostly permanents here. They do keep all rigs looking nice and no clutter around them. People under 21 are not allowed. It was 114 degrees while we were there and the palm trees, although nice, provided no shade. The sites are blacktop with gravel between so it was HOT. Our friends were coming in on the 4th, the office was closed, and the guard shack had no info on there arrival. When they did arrive they were placed in a site 3 rows away from us because their site, near us, was still occupied and no one could explain why. The site next to us was open the whole time we were there but they would not put our friends there. The roads are narrow and most sites are hard to get into for a 40 foot or bigger. Our friend’s 42 foot motorhome was guided into a water faucet by the park staff and suffered damage. The park did say their insurance would pay for repairs. A trash trucks came into the park every other day at 6 am and woke everyone up banging dumpsters around. We will not stay here again.

This is a very nicely maintained KOA. The staff is friendly. Everything is clean and maintained. It is on an interstate frontage road however the noise is not bad. Nice tall oleanders between each site for privacy and some trees for shade. I would recommend it and stay again.

I found this park to be not bad at all. Sure it is parking lot style camping. The park was clean and well kept. You could always see maintenance people working around the park. The staff was real friendly and informative. San Francisco is easy to get to from here and there are good shopping malls nearby. It was very quiet at night and even though we were in the second row from the beach we could still hear the ocean. It is pricey for what it is but it is the only game in town.

I would sure like to know where our State Park Campground fees are going. They certainly are NOT going back into the State Parks. This place is an overgrown weed infested dirty rundown park. I have stayed in parking lots that were much nicer and cleaner than this. The generator hours are out of line with reality, 10:00a to 8:00p. I like to have breakfast and coffee before 10:00a and watch TV after 8:00p. What were they thinking.

We have stayed here before and liked it but feel that the prices have gotten too high. They do not offer any discounts such as Good Sam or AAA. Most sites are so narrow that you can’t let out your awning. With our 36 foot motorhome I had to drive through the site behind us to get into our site. I would have never made the turn from the road around the trees into our site. They do have larger Premium site but at a Premium price. We arrived at 1:00p and they made us sit in the overflow area until 2:00p before we could occupy our site. They said they were watering, however our site was dry on arrival. I think this might the last time we stay here.

After reading the reviews here I was not sure I wanted to stay here. We did and were pleasantly surprised. Yes we had 4 skunks roaming around the motorhome in the evening but they were well behaved and did not smell. We didn’t use the restrooms so I can’t comment on that. We had site A-109 which was one of the best sites in my opinion. Lot’s of space between the next sites and us. It’s on a bluff overlooking the lake, beach, airport, and million dollar homes across the lake. I enjoyed watching the planes during the day. No airport noise at night. The park is clean with lots of green grass and trees. Section A is more like a nice city park atmosphere than RV park. This park is MUCH nicer than the KOA nearby.

This is one of those examples of a campground calling themselves a resort. Theyre a lot of permanent residents here. They must call this Hidden Beaches because there are no beaches. There is a dirt mound between the boat ramp and dock they call a beach. The boat ramp is protected from the river currents, which is handy for loading and unloading your boat. They do have a nice store, which is also used by a lot of locals and day workers. This is a Passport America park however instead of cutting the price in half, they give you the basics for the price. They will charge you extra for electricity, WiFi, and sewer which will bring it back up to near full price. We would have stayed at the Passport America park around the corner but wanted a river front site.

Although this is probably the best RV park we saw along the lake, it is not all that great. I would never pay the $40 a night they want but since I am a Passport America member and this is a PA park we stayed for $20 a night. The grounds crew were out both day we were here cleaning up the leaves from the trees however they were using a blower to do so and dusted us out pretty bad. I now have a cough from the dust and my wife is all stuffed up. The motorhome has a fine grit over everything inside. The beach area shown on their map is dirt and rocks and beer cans. There are a lot of permanents here. Bottom line is, I wont be back.

After driving 1 mile down a dirty dusty road to get here, our first impression was a good one. Lots of shade trees. The park looked a little tight but doable in a big rig. The office staff was very friendly. They where full for the weekend when we pulled in but she found a site that the people didnt show so she gave it to us. The interior roads are dirty gravel and the sites are grass. The sites are level and clean with a fire ring and table at each one. They have a central area with pool, volley ball, horse shoes, shuffle board, and a playground. They also have a laundry and limited supplies in the office. This park is nice and quiet at night. It is a few miles from the Interstate and you can hear the trucks but it isnt too annoying. The biting flies were annoying and a few mosquitoes. We stayed here 4 nights.

My first impression was very nice. The access road is gravel and a bit dusty but in very good shape. The office staff was very friendly and check in went smooth. The interior roads are also gravel and very drivable. The sites are grass and ours was a large pull through with full hookups and 50 amps service. Leveling was no problem at all and the site was clean. Our site was out in the open but they do have many sites with shade trees. There is a playground and a clean pool. They also have an arcade for the kids and an area for the adults to sit and enjoy free coffee. I was disappointed they didnt have wireless or even a phone line to use to get on the internet. They say they are working on Wireless though. The grounds were in good shape and clean. Although it appears to be right next to the Interstate, noise was not a problem at our site. This campground reminds me of the movie Field of Dreams because it appears to have been built in the middle of a cornfield. Right outside our site was the end of the cornfield with 6-foot stocks. If the corn was ready for picking I could have had some real fresh corn since there is no fence between the field and us.

My first impression of this place was good. It was flat with lots of trees. The office staff was friendly but they are from India and have a hard time understanding and speaking the English language although check in was painless. The interior roads are good gravel with grassy sites. The grass was a little high in spots and looks as though it hasnt seen water in weeks especially around the few long term residence. All sites are pull through and easy to get into with a big rig. They are long enough to handle a 40 footer with tow attached. They dont give you a lot of width but I had both slides out and all my awnings and still had plenty of room. We were set up with minimal leveling. They have a pool which has seen better days but it is usable. There is a blacktop basket ball court with many cracks and weeds growing up through. The miniature golf looks as if it was built in a weekend by an amature carpenter. The sand volley ball court looked ok. There is a minimal stocked store, rec room, and 1 modem hookup in the office area. I didnt use the restrooms so I cant comment on them. Although it is a few blocks away from the interstate you can hear it at night but not enough to be an issue otherwise the park is quiet (no trains). Generally this park isnt all that bad. I would recommend it. It does appear to be an old KOA by the looks of the office building. We stayed for 5 nights and felt safe and comfortable. There is a Wal-Mart Supercenter close by for all your needs. It is close to the Elkhart Visitors Center, RV museum, and some factory tours.

Very nice appearance with grassy sites under large shade trees. There is a Camp Host that is very friendly. He is involved with the complete fairgrounds and can help you with all your needs. The campground area is located in a corner of the fairground and is fenced off. It is a large grassy field with lots of shade trees. Most sites are level but some can be a bit tricky to get leveled. The place is very clean. It is in a nice quiet part of town so you can expect a good nights sleep. We stayed here 1 night.

This place is absolutely fabulous. They have wooded sites, lake sites, and beach sites. With over 1100 sites you have a good choice. You dont ever have to leave the park. The beach is long and clean. They have a fully stocked store, snack bar, caf, laundry, and more. Both the indoor and outdoor pools are large and clean and they even have a Lazy River for tubing. There is always entertainment going on. The place is always clean and the staff is very friendly and helpful. They have their own visitors center that will make reservations for in town entertainment for you. It is midway between North and South Myrtle Beach so access to both is easy. If you are heading to or through Myrtle Beach, this is the place to stay.

I am glad I read the other reviews on this campground. It is everything they said it is. We stayed here for 8 days. It rained half the time and the maintenance crew was out every time opening drains and directing water. Mosquito control was on top of spraying to keep the population down. Litter was picked up everyday. Lots to do here with all the hike/bike trails, fishing, dog beach, water slides, and climbing wall. Beach is close by and your park pass covers the parking fees. Close to all dinning and attractions in Charleston. Very friendly and helpful staff.
