We stayed here in Campground 1 for a long weekend. Campground 1 is for RVs, although tents are allowed also; and Campground 2 is for tents. Sites in Campground 1 are very spacious. We were on Site 111 and we could have parked two 36' fifth wheels on the site. Our site was private with trees on three sides. Campground was quiet, even when mostly full. Roads are paved, but sites are gravel with large gravel area for tables, fire ring, and lantern pole. Grass was mowed and site was level. 50 amp electrical service, water, but no cable. Very friendly rangers and hosts. Nice visitor center. No cell service, but adequate TV reception. Dump station was good and included hose for flushing tanks.
This park is for those of us who enjoy the outdoors, but not for those who want to eat at restaurants or go shopping, since it is several miles out. There are miles of hiking trails with varying terrain and this kept us busy for the days we were there. But beware of ticks on the trails. Kayaking is also an option since the park is on the river. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend this campground for "camping." We camped at Chattahoochee Bend State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed at Branches of Niagara for four nights. The campground is located on Grand Island, which is one of the better areas near Niagara Falls, so we felt comfortable there and didn't worry about theft while we were away at the Falls. It appears the campground has been built on what was low lying land and they still have some drainage issues to rectify. We saw water standing in several areas throughout the park. We had reservations and when we backed into the site they had reserved for us, we were unable to get in or out of our truck without stepping in water. However, this wasn't a problem because when we went back to the office, they let us select another site. The sites are gravel and most are back in sites. Our site, #80, was on the end and had a very pretty yard area where we could sit in the evenings, after applying mosquito repellant. They are adding additional campsites, so there was some construction noise while we were there but it was not bothersome. The cabins were very nice and everything looked clean and new, but we were a little disappointed with the campsites themselves. For the price, we expected a little more, such as paved sites and less standing water. Overall however, we were satisfied and would recommend. We camped at Branches of Niagara Campground and Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

We stopped at Cross Creek for overnight twice during one week. The campground is located in a nice neighborhood with a state park nearby. There are several chain restaurants, such as Bob Evans, Cracker Barrel, etc., at the interstate exit, as well as service stations. The grounds were very well landscaped. Although there are also seasonal and annual units in the park, they are neat and well maintained. The office staff were attentive to our request for a quiet site where we could rest for the night and she let us see the available sites before making a selection. We were satisfied with our sites both nights. The other campers also seemed to be enjoying themselves. We saw several children riding bikes and they were having a wagon ride one evening while we were there. My only complaint would be that the sites have fire rings. In this type of park where sites are close, the smoke is just too much. I actually had an asthma attack one night when an inconsiderate neighboring camper left a fire smoldering all night. Overall, we were pleased with the campground and the service we received. We would recommend to others. We camped at Cross Creek Camping Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
