I required a refund and left after had to have law enforcement deal with owner who cursed my 74 year old mother and threatened her because she asked about wi fi (which they don't offer). Rate is not as advertised, and park is trashy; I've seen more gravel on a dirt track. All back in sites if you can find your place. They gave me directions 4 times and I drove for three hours to go 1 mile from where I started. Been camping and RVing for 50 years and worst place I have ever seen and worst people (owner) I ever dealt with. Stay away. We camped at Hounds Gateway Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed here for one night in 40' motor home. Person at the desk had no people skills at all. No one helps you find your spot or helps you back in (all lots are back in ) and you need help as spots are small. At $40.00 a night this place is terrible. It is not worth $15.00 a night. We camped at Hounds Gateway Campground in a Motorhome.

Sites are small-no fire rings-website says $25/night,but when you get there the sign says 25/night mon-thur-its 40 on weekends-the only thing going for them is the drive in theater. We camped at Hounds Gateway Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We went there to check it all out before even camping there. Upon arrival, we noticed RR tracks right across the street. Campsites were very close to each other and very narrow. Older campers were just sitting there. Not sure if they just put them there making it look like people were camping. No one was around. You have to pay for the Zip Line. Rip off if you ask me. Bathrooms at the time were clean, but then I read more reviews on how filthy they are now. Owner was kind of wishy washy/weird. Definitely would not camp here.

Overall Rating:

This place is without a doubt the worst campground I have ever stayed in in 14 years of full timing. I called a week ahead of time for a reservation. The gentleman took all my information, quoted a price of $25 for full hookups. We drove 350 miles that day and entered the place under a severe T-storm warning. The lady at the desk could not find my reservation. She said go unhook, find a spot and come back and we'll fill out the paperwork, no problem, been there before. I got the very last spot in the park.The interior roads are gravel and filled with potholes. They say they are big rig friendly... NOT, really tight. The sewer was at the very back and uphill, HUH, decent water pressure, decent 50 amp.We will NOT return and would advise to stay away from here.

Great campground for budget conscious Travelers. I have no problem staying here but there is a down side. It sits close to a set of railway tracks and the noise of the trains could bother a light sleeper. We camped at Hounds Gateway Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Just outside of small town America. 5 to 10 minutes to food, groceries and laundry. 20 minutes from larger city for all other needs. 3 RV dealers within 5 to 20 minutes for your RV needs.

The plus side the folks we talked with on the phone were very nice and helpful. The minus: If there is signage directing people to the park we did not see it. The entrance road is very rough and the sites are very narrow and short. They may be fine for a smaller camper but we did not think ours would fit. We looked at a couple of sites and decided to try another park. We camped at Hounds Gateway Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Overall Rating:

This campground is fairly new and is a work in progress, as more amenities are being added. There is a nice playground on the site and there are laundry facilities. Hookups are new and conveniently laid out. Owner was very helpful and friendly. There are not many campgrounds in this general area, so it is good to have another choice now. The main negatives are the frequent noisy trains on the double track just across the road, and the sites could be more level. It is also cash only unless you want to pay a 10% surcharge to use a check or credit card. The trains are our main reason for a "4" rating. I indicated "don't know" as to big rig accommodations; although some sites may be OK, the turns are relatively tight. Plus I don't think all of the sites are long enough for a big rig. It would be best to call and make sure that an appropriate site is available if you are in a long rig. We camped at Hounds Gateway Campground in a Travel Trailer.
