Although this campground is in a “hilly” area, it seems to have very level sites. We had a pull-through and pulled right up and we were level. They seem to have very strict rules, but it seems they are strict because of past bad tenants. Price includes full hookup, cable and Internet. Nice place a couple miles out of town. We would stay here again.

First impressions mean a lot. Well, we got in 90 minutes early and they told me that we’d have to pay extra if we registered early. Check in time: 1 PM. So we decided to go eat lunch and come back at 1 PM. When we came back, I asked about firewood and they told me that it would cost $5 a day to rent a fire ring. I was flabbergasted! They have all these other amenities but NO fire ring? That’s what camping is all about! The Internet is slow at best. The cable TV is 12 channels. Beautifully maintained camp with level concrete pads throughout. The other amenities I mentioned are: pool, fishing, horseshoes, ladder golf, volleyball and basketball. So I guess it depends if you want to compare amenities. We won’t camp here again.

For us, this was almost the perfect camp. Families would probably want to use nearby more family oriented camps. Within 1 mile of this stretch of road there are 3 camps, and 2 RV dealers/parts stores. This is a level campground with gravel roads and sites. We had a concrete patio just next to the RV with picnic table. The only downside was no fire rings. There is a dog walk park and a very nice pool that is 9 ft. deep. One evening, there was entertainment in the office/pool area which I found quite nice. Very good Internet service. Friendly and helpful workers and small gift shop with some conveniences. Giving it a 9 because of lack of fire rings. We would stay here again.

Small, quiet, clean park. Level sites. No fire rings or pits. No pool. Very comfortable. Clean showers and bathrooms. Laundry on premises.

The campground itself was nice enough. Clean restrooms and showers. Some sites under trees, some not. The internet service was quite good. The roads are only one lane wide and it can be a bit tight in there. Even the main drive is a single lane and if two cars meet, they must be careful to get around each other. On all the info I had to get to the CG, it read, Jackson Hole Campground with address as a number and street name. When I arrived, I missed the CG because the sign outside has no reference to a campground; only Fireside Resort. Very confusing. After I got set up I found that there was only 50 amp service. I use 30 amp (which was on my reservation), but they didn’t bother to say anything when we signed in. My wife went to borrow a converter, that they sell for $24.00 but she had to put a $50 deposit on it. I also didn’t have a fire ring at my site. When I brought this up, they said I was at a new site and they would tell the maintenance man to dig one right away. It never happened. I think the owners here are more interested in their cabins and other things and collecting these huge fees. My cost per night includes taxes. We would not camp here again.

Small, family oriented (homey). Owners are very friendly and attentive to our needs. Very nice place to stay for a couple of nights. Located between the highway and train tracks, which might put you off. First night, I was awoken about 4 times by train whistle. Clean laundry and restrooms. The owners collection of hundreds of DVDs are there to borrow; a very nice touch! Beautiful flowers and garden near office. We would stay there again.

Used this campground as a one night stopover. Very friendly and helpful owners. This is their first year as owners. There are 10” corrugated drainpipes that are not quite buried and I did worry about accidentally running over the end of these. I wouldn’t want to cut a tire. There is a mixture of gravel sites and grass covered sites. The owner allowed me to choose where I’d like to go, so I took the grass covered site. It appears that all sites are quite level. The laundry room was clean, but I didn’t see the shower or rest rooms. There’s a nice horseshoe pit for playing or watching. The internet service was quite good. I would camp here again.

Great campground! Right next to the entrance of Devil’s Tower. Clean everything! Not just your usual office store, but gift shop and restaurant, too! I didn’t know this until after we checked in, but every night at 9PM they show the movie Close Encounters of the Third Kind, outside, under the stars with Devil’s Tower in the background. (as long as the weather is OK). They do not allow campfires at individual sites but they have two community campfires every evening. There are grills at every site which may be used for cooking. It also seems to me, that just about every site has a great view of Devil’s Tower. Internet service was not so good, but they tell you that right up front! We would camp here again.

After reading all the great reviews about this campground, I was happy to arrive here! The only flaw we really had were the dryers in the laundry room. My wife reported to me that they were not very efficient. Clothes were not drying properly in a reasonable amount of time. There are 2 pools on the property and both are sparkling! Plenty of room to spread out and if you don’t have a fire ring on your site, they will deliver one to you. We enjoyed our stay here and would come back.

Friendly campground. The staff works hard to keep things working smooth. We stayed during the July 4th holiday and the campground got rather full. There are 202 sites but this campground really squeezes 'em in. My slideout was about 5 feet from my neighbor’s slideout. After setting up, I had to park my truck on a diagonal to make it fit. The property shares space with a motel (same owners). We didn’t use the pool, but it was very clean. The laundry rooms were clean, as were the rest rooms. The cable TV is $3 extra per day. As soon as I hooked up, I saw that most channels had “snowy” pictures. For the next 24 hours I worked with the staff to resolve it, but finally asked for a refund, which was happily given. Internet service was usual for a campground setting. Great in the early morning or late at night but hard to get at other times. On the entrance side of my trailer there was a muddy puddle in the grass, which seems to be a water line leak under the soil. After I reported this, the staff filled it with stone so that I would not step in the mud, but it was still a patch of wet stone for the entire visit. This, to me is very bothersome. Such things as that need to be repaired. I’m hoping that it was a fresh water line and not sewage. Since there are so many campgrounds in the area, we would not stay here again.

The first thing I noticed about this campground was that they had recently dumped gravel in areas on the roads that I presume were in pretty bad shape. When I pulled into the check-in area my truck and trailer felt like they were going to sink. I don’t think anything was graded or tamped, just dumped. There were several areas like that in the park. Sites are fairly level, but some leveling was necessary on most sites. Grassy sites with gravel drives. I’m not sure about the pool. It didn’t appear that the water was clean…but I’m not sure if it was the pool liner or the water itself. We did not use the pool. The laundry room was clean. The person at the desk when I checked in seemed to be distracted by some “children issues” and therefore came off as being a bit curt with me. Kind of hurried me off. The printed map is a bit confusing. There are arrows showing roads as one way, but if you follow the map, you can’t get out! Most guests just used all the roads as two-way. The brochure does not reflect actuality with information given. There is no kid’s activity calendar, but they do have a playground. Very disappointed in this KOA. The one thing my wife and I were very happy with was the Wi-Fi, however we would not return.

Large, open grassy sites, with young trees scattered throughout. A very nice place to spend some time. Too bad we only had 2 nights there. Friendly. Clean. Their Internet is secure and like being home. Cable TV is great; especially when you’ve been without TV for several days. Crystal clear heated pool. I highly recommend this park. We would camp here again.

First, I don’t like to be forced to pay a reservation fee. At least 2 campgrounds in this area do this. The one-time non-returnable reservation fee is $3.00. Minus 1 point. The receipt that was given to me is very difficult to understand. It took several minutes to see exactly what I paid, but there are no dates on the receipt other than arrival & departure dates. Minus 1 point. Free Wi-Fi? Not really. You get one coupon with a Tengo Internet code per 24 hr. period, but the catch is that you can only use that code on one device. My wife and I each have a PC and each have a phone. So I was given the option to purchase more coupons at $2.00 per device per 24 hr. period. So for the 4 nights we stayed, I paid $8.00 for “free” internet access. But I must admit, on a Friday evening, the internet was running smoothly, but I still must subtract one more point! There is only one place to dump trash in this very large campground. I suppose the reason is to keep down any wildlife issues. However, with that said, the campground itself was run well. It has hundreds of sites, some big, some small. It’s location is on Lake Huron. There’s a pool, free mini-golf and a nice large camp store with arcade/game room. Our site was large with a very nice fire ring. The utilities were spread far apart. I had to use a second hose to get to the water outlet; the electric and sewer lines barely reached their respective outlets after I moved trailer to accommodate my 25 ft. electric cord. Sadly minus another point. If you go in June, beware of the billions of flying insects that apparently arrive for about 2 weeks. At first I thought they were mosquitos, but were they’re not. They don’t bite, but they are VERY annoying and get all over everything! We may or may not stay here again, only because of the limited choices in the area.

I find this to be one of the best parks I've been to. Level sites. Nice grassy beach area. Choice of lots of trees or open area. Employees were friendly and helpful. I’m a bit disappointed with the location of utilities on the site. I had to pull up my travel trailer to the edge of site so that my 25’ electric cord would reach the outlet. Internet is slower than home, but typical for campgrounds, I suppose. We were here mostly during the week, so I would assume with more campers on weekends internet might be even slower. Rate quoted is with Good Sam discount. I would camp here again.

We were here two years ago when this campground was called Wildwood. At the time it had new owners. Since then, they partnered with KOA and the park has become more family friendly. Sites are either gravel or concrete pad. We were on a very large comfortable pull-thru on a gravel site and did have to level one side, but once set up, no problems. New bath houses are kept very clean and trash is picked up at your site every day. They also have a central location for those that recycle, which we do. The owners are very friendly as are the employees. The pool was immaculate and crystal clear! There are rental cabins in the park and tent sites are located near the lake. The only negative thing about this park is that the internet is the worst! I hope they can get that worked out, since, at least for us, the internet is important. Because of the internet service I must give an 8, but I hope I change it to a 10 when we come back again in August. We will camp here again.

Nice KY state campground. Bath houses not the cleanest, but pretty much like others owned by states. Our site was rather level, but the utilities were so far from the site that I either needed an extension cord or move the trailer off the gravel pad to reach, and I don’t have an extension cord. Sites are very roomy. Campground filled up for the weekend with mostly families with young, very active and noisy kids. Probably best to reserve site early. I reserved about a month in advance and all sites with sewer were not available. There are 3 dump stations though. We would stay here again.

This campground is great for a stopover while traveling. It’s a mile or two off of I-95, about 12 miles north of Richmond. There are only 17 sites here just off of Route 1, with 11 of them being pull-throughs. Behind the campground is the mobile home park, also Kosmo Village. There are no bathroom/shower facilities and no one at the office. We made a reservation by phone, and a traffic cone was left in our site marking it as reserved. If you drive in, there is an area to fill out an envelope with info and drop into a slot with your cash. The sites are gravel & level. I didn’t need to unhitch because the pull-through was plenty long. Received several on-air TV stations with the use of antennae. The only negatives are that it’s very close to Route 1 where the traffic is 24/7 and there was a very bright parking lot light which shown into our bedroom. No tents allowed.

Very clean campground. Great pool. At least two children's playgrounds. Newer and clean bath house, laundry building. Plenty of activities. Internet is very slow and during evenings, probably when most are using it, it gets pretty much impossible to use. It appeared to me that the nice wooded sites are held for seasonal use. We were in an open area with direct sunlight during the evening hours, even with the awning down.

We happened to get in here just before the rate goes up for summer. On June 20th, the same site goes for $69/night! This campground is set back a bit from the road and seems to have it all. I can see why it’s so popular with families in the summer. Only a few miles from the beach, it has a lake for swimming and a pool. There are many permanent sites around the campground. There is an Arcade on the property with about 6 pool tables, 4 ski-ball machines and many other games for the kids. Since my wife and I camp alone and are older, it probably wouldn’t be for us in mid-summer…I can only imagine all the kids and families here! But for young families, this is the place to be, I’m sure. I didn’t find the employees here to be very friendly. I asked one employee a question and she told me to go stand by the counter and someone would be out soon. For the most part the property is clean and neat, but a few of the older permanent trailers are in need of cleaning and maintenance. I visited only one of the bath houses and it looked like new. Very clean. They do charge to take a shower, which I find a negative because of the high cost of rent.

This campground is set back about a mile from the main highway. The road from the main highway is in poor condition with many potholes. When arriving at the entrance, there is an unmanned booth and no security gates. The office/store is located halfway around the main CG road. We arrived late, drove around to the office, which was closed, as we expected, to get our site info which they said they would leave for us, and then discovered that our site was located back near the entrance. Our site was level. In the morning, I noticed that although the CG was practically empty, our site was located adjacent to their storage area where 4 or 5 old dirty trailers sat in weeds (not a pretty sight). I went over the office at 9am and the store was closed and had no posted hours. After lunch, we left for a few hours and while we were out, I received an email welcoming us to the CG and to “come down to the office to check in as soon as possible and pay your remaining balance.” Sometime during the late afternoon, I did just that, but the office was once again closed. I returned at 5:45pm and this time was greeted by a CG employee. I was not impressed with customer service after receiving that email. The public restrooms are clean but very dated. Had to hold shower valve open for shower. There is a lake with a swimming area on the property and the beach has several covered picnic tables. There are a couple of pavilions on the property, a volleyball court, softball field and game room. There is also a “barn” on the property. At least that’s what it’s called on the CG map. The barn is a small 2 story building that is located in the middle of a row of campsites. It really should be torn down because it’s about to fall down. It appears to me that this property may double as a swim club in the summer months (or did at some point in time). If we return here, it is only because we have family in the area and this most accessible CG to them. The campground as a whole seemed to need much cleanup and work.

Quirky campground set in rural PA just near a beautiful covered bridge (clearance 12’-1”). Appears to be several permanent or seasonal campers on the “hill” area of the CG. Many in need of work and a good cleaning. We were on the lower, more level area. Did not need to level at this site. Store and office were closed by 6pm when we arrived. The next day we went to square up and found that even though it was 2 weeks before Halloween, because it was a “holiday” weekend, that we could not get discount as Good Sam members. We did, however, get a discount for Thursday night and Sunday night. We were also told that they held THREE Halloween weekends in October, all considered “holidays”. Apparently campgrounds can call any weekend a “holiday” and not give discounts. We were not happy about that, especially since we didn’t see this info on the website, or on any of the paperwork. Internet reception is not so good. Bathrooms were clean.

This campground apparently has recently changed names. It was Travel Trailer Village. Certainly not a bad place for an overnight stay. About 3 or 4 miles from I-95. Most sites are pull throughs and about 40% have water, electric and sewer. There is also free Wi-Fi (which works very well). This campground is 32 miles from the White House, if you’re in the area to tour DC, and just a few miles from Quantico. They use a code for the bathing house. Not sure why. We were only there for one night, but the place was busy, especially for a Monday night.

Most state campgrounds don’t offer E, W & S but this one does. However, even though I made reservations a couple of months ago, there were no sewer sites available that my 31’ trailer would fit. However they put us near the office where we could still get internet reception. Internet is only available in and around the office/store. The site was a bit skinny, and needed some pruning to give us a little room. Since it’s a state park there is an ordinance against cutting plant life, etc., but thankfully a Ranger came out to the site and did a lot of trimming to give us some extra space on our first day. Sandy soil and a short walk to the beach. Campsites are level. After campers check out, I noticed a guy comes to site and cleans out ashes from fire ring, rakes and straightens up picnic table to make it good for the next campers.

Great stop for an overnight while on the way up or down I-95. Arrived after 6 pm which gives us the $25.00 special. With that, there is no cable TV. Most other sites at the resort do have cable. All sites have E/W/S. The resort has free internet and I was able to connect easily. The best thing was that the site was right on level. All I did was drop my corner jacks. Didn’t even have to unhitch from the truck. But I must give an 8 only because I love to have an evening campfire and only a small percentage of the sites included a fire ring and I believe none of those were available.

After a long day on the road, there was a bit of a mix-up while checking in. However, the new owners were apologetic, very friendly, and helpful. Wooded campground with plenty of pull through sites with concrete pads, including ours. Beautiful pond with ducks looking for a hand-out! On the weekend, a couple times a day, the owner drove the kiddies (and some parents) around the park on the “train” ride which is a tractor with 3 trailers decorated like a circus train. The owner was quite helpful and answered all of my questions, and then some. We will be back! Facilities include the old bath house with 2 toilets and 2 showers in each and a new bath house which has four separate doors. Each has a shower, toilet and dressing area.

We just bought our first trailer and decided on this campground because of its close proximity to our home. Staff was friendly. Clean restrooms. Thankfully, our neighbor was very helpful in helping us back in to our site. I still need much practice in this area. I mentioned that this was our first trip to the office staff and thought they’d send out a staff member to help with that, so this was a bit disappointing. The Wi-Fi was not bad, but couldn’t connect every time I tried. Cable TV only had 11 channels. Enjoyed a couple of the activities they hosted. Did not use the pool, but it appeared to be crystal clear. Site was level, with plenty of space. Campground is well maintained. Had a great time and will return here.
