This is by far the worst campground there is. I have been camping many years and have never seen anything like this. The roads (ditches) to get to the sites are potholed, rutted and no RV should ever go on them. I was taken to two sites that it was totally impossible to get my 35ft Winney into, then taken to a third site that was flooded because of a water leak some where. I parked on the wrong side of the patio, as I sure could not have gotten into the other side. Then when I tried to hook into water and sewer, there was none. Was asked if I could not go one night without water and sewer. I said no and demanded a refund of my $32. Was told no refunds. I talked to the owner and she told me they would put the money back on my card. Which as of 3 1/2 weeks later they still have not. Please if you are traveling this way, STAY AWAY from this "campground".
By far one if not the worst campground in the USA. - earlhop

I am currently still staying here and will be here until November. My boyfriend and our two children ( 2 year old and 4 month old) in lot 1 we like it here and have no complaints we are actually helping fix the place up so that way the negative comments can stop! It's not that bad here honestly if it was we wouldn't still be here. The owner is an excellent person to get along with and so are the employees! I haven't had rides to get to point a to point b and they have offered anytime i needed to go somewhere! They are not rude at all like most comments say! Yes I think this is a great place to stay if you are wanting a one night stay or monthly! Lots are nice some lots wooded some concrete electric trash water sewage and cable included very nice place
Thanks. - Ashley1215

This is off Exit 11 on Interstate 70. They have a permanent section and a temporary section. The front permanent section looks easy to get into and is close to the office. The temporary section is up the hill and very cumbersome to drive to, rutted road. Let's say, I held my breath. The manager was very nice and led in front of me to show me which spots I could choose from. The temporary area is quite rustic, despite having full hookups. Lots of trees, and great shade. Sites are far from being level. The sites were so out of level, I didn't even bother putting down my stabilizers. I had trouble with my cable connection, it wouldn't work. So, the owner and someone in the next spot over helped to get it working. Let's just say, you don't want to know how they got it working. The manager knew I was traveling alone and didn't have a tow car and said if I needed anything, they would get it for me. The manager is willing to do anything to help you out. I thought that $32 was a bit pricey, but this may be average for this area, and since it was July 4th time, beggars can't be choosers. The manager told me that a shopping area was about half a mile away, but I didn't check this out. I just stayed put in my RV for three days, after holding my breath to get up the rutted road. The manager said it's ok to unhook and go in and out if needed. This is ok for an overnight, but wouldn't use if for a destination. It was pretty quiet during my stay. - DXSMac

We stayed overnight on our way to MN to visit family. Very clean park. Large sites but be careful if you have a longer rig. Ours is 36 ft and we would have some issues with some sites. - Karen Fredrickson

Nice and quiet. Not full while we were there. Asphalt pads were not in great shape in Loop B where we were. They looked to be better in Loop A. Pretty easy access for a big rig in both Loops. Water pressure and temperature were good in the Women's shower. In the Men's, you had to keep pushing a button to keep the flow going and the hot water was a mere trickle. - CnCOntheGo

Our site was very nice, however like most have said, only pit toilets and hook up is only electric. Our site had water nearby. Good news is that the park is putting in 15 full hook up sites. It was a bit noisy but talking to staff, they said if all goes well, more will be added. We stayed in loop A which is nicely shaded, but would be tight for any rig larger than ours at 27 feet plus truck. Loops B and C are more easily for larger rigs. - Trainspotter

This campground is divided into 4 different areas. 3 of the 4 areas are permanent sites, the other area is one large field, and this is for the weekenders. No designated sites, everyone just sets up wherever they wish, muddy sites, and no one runs this place. Also, you have to pay $5 for a key to the bathroom, and they are filthy. Never stay here again!!!! - darjen

This is a very nice park that has 300 level sites and a couple of fishing lakes. Interior roads were gravel. We camped in the 5A section which was a wide open grassy field with very wide sites. This section was on a hill top and the lakes were at the bottom of the hill. If walking to lakes be prepared for a trek up hill back to your campsite. Several permanent sites and most people had golf carts to get around. Only 30 amp service available and no sewage but they do have a dump station. No reservations required. A great place to get away and relax. Very people friendly park. We will return for another visit. - cleo1948

Be advised that the campground will be on a first come, first served system (and might even be closed altogether) starting June 1, 2015 for much needed repairs and upgrades. $20 per night (regularly $24 per night before senior citizen discount) was for a needed-leveling (6" on our right side) gravel/grass site. We did have 50-amp electric service and there was water available a few sites away. Be warned about the almost backward turn you will have to make to access the road to the campground if you come from the park office. We unhooked our tow vehicle in the park office parking lot and, even then, after pulling all the way to the right before attempting the left turn, we still had to back up once before completing the turn. The surrounding area was mowed grass with a wooden picnic table and fire ring. There were loads of trees in the campground providing shade for most of the day. The perimeter of the campground has been left to return to nature so there were loads of trees, plants (including milkweed for the monarch butterflies and other flowering plants for other butterflies) and abundant wildlife. The night sky is very dark so the stars are brilliant when they peek through the treetops. This campground is located miles from the nearest city so come prepared with supplies. AT&T service was two bars of 4G LTE using our booster and Verizon service was one bar of 1X. We received six over-the-air TV stations and many radio stations. - DD Rolling Ranch

Quiet and isolated. Drive in could be a problem for bigger units. Campsite is on top of a small round top hill. There was a trail that circles the campsite that was actually the boundary between the hunt-no hunt areas of the park, in other words it was the firing line. We passed a couple of hunters during our evening hike. Enjoyed our stay but we were really glad the park office had flush toilets and hot water. - buzzards27

Can't complain too much about a free campground. The campground is small, just seven sites, all small and paved, but none are level. Each site has a picnic table and fire ring, and there are trash cans and gray water dumps place every few sites, but no full service dump station. Weak Verizon service, but it was there. Just pit toilets, well stocked, but not the best. On a Saturday night in July I was all alone in this campground, it was very dark and very quiet. Local sheriff rolled through the campground once in the evening, but that was it. Nice stay and chance to get away from it all, I will return. - Cyclonic

Don't believe previous reviews - nice little campground - safe & clean.
Sadly some people who do reviews don't understand small campgrounds CAN'T have people onsite all the time. This campground only has a couple people a day (at most) coming or leaving so there just wouldn't be any logic to owners being around all the time.
It is a small campground and it is owned by a husband & wife with two kids in college. Owners also have to work during the week so Monday through Friday it is likely you will not see them. There is a drop box for your payment, bathrooms & pool were very clean. Sites were mowed and well maintained but if you are their during the week it is highly unlikely you will see the owners or be able to talk with them in person.
However, both weekends we were their the owners were working ALL day to make the place as nice as possible. We really enjoyed the place and talking with them.
If you are looking for a HUGE campground with hundreds of sites this is not it. But if you like a private setting that is clean and well maintained you will not be disappointed.
I wanted to post a nice review shortly after our visit but I have been extremely busy. So sorry for the delay giving this feedback! - toomanypins

This run down, side-of-road park does not deserve your business. The hostess, when she is around, is rude and totally unhelpful to a first-time visitor. We were returning to the East from an 8,000 mile trip with lots of RV parks under our belt when we picked this one from Woodall's. It does NOT deserve any rating at all. Skip it. - SilverOtter

We reserved a 50 Amp Electric, Sewer, water, pull through site for 9 days. There was nobody here to check us in and other clients told us, "She doesn’t come around much." We had no instructions as to what site to go to, so we searched for a 50 amp pedestal and backed in. The owner/manager finally showed up at 5:10 pm. She was the most unfriendly person I have ever come across. Didn’t bother to introduce herself, seemed annoyed we were paying by credit card, and the word surely would not even be accurate. The first night the main pedestal power went off 6 hours. I will say they replaced the 50 amp breaker in the morning. In the afternoon the power started cycling on and off again. Now fortunately we have the best TRC Power Surge Guard makes, so it didn’t fry my A/C or my TV. It did cause damage to my computer. The manager said, "Oh I'm out of town so there’s nothing I can do. Try moving to a different site." We are both in our 60s and I am disabled so this was not a nice experience. We did it, and the problem was worse. Now the power is cycling off every 2-3 minutes. I could read the display on my Surge Guard so I know the voltage amps coming in from the Pedestal. There is/was nothing wrong with my unit or my RV electrical system. The place smelled of sewer everywhere and trash had not been picked up in quite some time. It was a nightmare. We left 4 days early and the manager refuses to return our calls regarding a refund. - jimhoch
