"Perfect location"

We had a GREAT welcome and reception by the hotel receptionist. However, we were concerned whether we could "squeeze" between the dumpster and fence. It was no problem, just still suffering from newbie jitters. We had very little problem finding... Read more

"Has it all!"

This is one of the best landscaped RV Campgrounds we've stayed in, except one on the gulf of Mexico in Florida. It is so very well maintained, has full hook ups and is big rig friendly. What was sad was that we stayed here over the 4th of July and... Read more

"Amazing!"

This is an Army Corps of Engineers park. First of all, the price is the Senior rate under the "America the Beautiful" national park pass. So that is part of the 5 stars! Granted, we did not score a full hook up site, but we thought it was well... Read more

We're not sure why it was so problematic making our reservation here and finding the actual campground, but it set a really bad tone! The address we were thought was for the campground took us on a 15 mile road to nowhere. It was all just so... Read more

"It was ideal for us"

Thanks to RVillage, we knew someone was staying here, so we knew it was dry and there were enough available sites for us to stay here. This is almost a self serve type of park. There is a huge area now to park and unhook if you need to while you... Read more
