Just Ok, But Quiet For One Night
If you need a place to stay, this will do for an overnight. Did not use the shower house or laundry facilities as arrived too late for both, but see other comments. You are not assigned a space, just pay at the desk and you have to find your own within the RV park. The Pros: easy access off of the highway, relatively quiet, full hookups. Water has a special key to turn on, which you get from the front desk The Cons: a lot of poor full-timers, most of whom park additional cars in RV spaces, grass was in need of mowing and lots of dog poo.

Overnight Stop
We are traveling through and it was time to stop for the night. This was the perfect stop for us.

Okay For Overnight
I am not sure where these pictures were taken but not here. Sites are mostly dirt or mud when it rains and it did. You are given a tool to open the water. Opened it but it would not close it. Had to use a wrench to get it closed so we did not hook up to the water. A lot of resident rigs. Most sites are pull thru. We have a 40'er pulling a car. Plenty of room to maneuver. No discounts. $36.47 with tax

Not As Advertised
The picture of the site must be 20 years old. There are no longer any white gravel pull throughs, green grass, or picnic tables. It's mostly ruts. Every site does have full hookup but they are extremely narrow. Bath house is clean but worn. Only shower curtain doors for privacy on the toilets. The site was long enough that we were able to leave the truck hooked up to our travel trailer so we could get out of there fast! Probably wouldn't stop here again.

Nice, Overnight Stop
This was the second year in a row to stay here as an over night stop. This year, I used the laundry facilities. They were air conditioned - thank goodness! They were clean and priced well, too. The lady at the desk was friendly! The spots were easy to pull through. Most were level; some had picnic tables. Both years there were last minute openings, but this year (2018) there were far fewer. I think this spot is gaining in popularity. It is nice to have a gas station with a diner and an express Godfather's Pizza right next door.

Peaceful
When arriving in the local area for long term work, friends recommended this campground since all others were still closed for the season or full. Can't give Ms Cindy enough praise for her selfless hospitality. She was always available and knew the campground very well. Only stayed for 2 weeks before getting a vacancy in a campground closer to work. Very plain, no frills basic campground. All pull through sites with water, sewer, and 30/50 amp hookup. Easy access on and off I-80. Would definitely recommend it to anyone.

Quick Overnight
Pricey but had all hook ups. Water was a pain to get on and off. Couldn't shut it off. Broke their tool. We had a shut off valve for it. Lucky for them. Ate at Corn Crib for dinner and breakfast. No picnic tables. Wouldn't have used it anyway. Price high for this place Slept well.

Overnight Stop Over Only
We stopped here for an overnight stop over. That is all this place is good for. I don't know where the picnick tables in the picture are either because the are not at the camp sites. The bathrooms look like they haven"t been cleaned in a week and the "kitchen" which is a room with a sink and tables and chairs had piles of garbage bags. The sites have holes all over them and you have to watch out you don't twist or break your ankle. There is no wifi. There are pull thru sites and 50 amp, water and sewer and there are several gas stations and restaurant's in the immediate area. Way to expensive for a over night stop. $37.47 for one night but if you need to sleep and need 50amp service it will do. Located right off the highway behind a gas station. I have it 2 stars just because it did have full hookups and pull thrus. Gravel and dirt sites only. Nothing exciting.

Good For A Quick Stop
Just a large grassy spot with full hookups. Easy in and easy out with big rigs. Right behind a gas station for quick fills and next to a few restaurants. Nothing special but a great quick stop. No internet at sites.
