Lovely setting but the campground needs management attention and signage. (Luckily, their neighbors are used to giving RVer's directions on how to find the park and to the manager's 5th wheel to pay.) The trees inside the campground have not been trimmed for years, and have grown far enough into the narrow road inside the campground to whack air conditioners and mirrors. Rate is $42 a night, cash or check only. As other reviewers have written, the owner/manager is disorganized; sites are neither reserved nor assigned. The site we had been directed to was occupied by another rig. Our rig blocked traffic while I hiked back to the 5th wheel in site #6 and knocked on the door. The owner/manager responded with a vague hand wave and a "well, then go over there" before closing the door in my face. Water pressure was occasionally low but Verizon and electric service were fine. No cable or OTA television channels. No restrooms, showers or laundry. The campground was quiet the three nights we were there, but we left on Thursday as to avoid the weekend crowd. The long-term residents were very nice to us, their sites were tidy and cared for, and they cleaned up after their dogs. The morning we were hitching up two unleashed dogs trotted thru the campground and the biggest one took its dump near the door of the trailer across from us and trotted away. The country road leading into the campground was a little narrow but well-kept and no problem for our rig. Site #33 is level, but only if you park in part of the site in front of it. (Hubby thinks Site #33 used to be two short, back-in, sites.) The Air Force Museum is wonderful but we will try another campground if we return to the area. We camped at Rei Lakes in a Motorhome.

The United States Air Force Museum is wonderful and free. We spent two days there and still didn't see it all. Take tissues with you: there will be tears.

This campground is way overpriced for what you get, but there are hardly any other choices if you want to tour the Air Force Museum. (It's about 30 minutes away.) We called ahead and asked for two sites. Our friends needed a pull-through since they are having car trouble and couldn't unhook. The campground is located down some long country roads, but they are OK. The main entrance has a narrow gate that's kind of scary for a big coach, but if you go past that entrance, there's another one without a gate. You have to go to the 5th-wheel where the owner lives, and she was pretty disorganized. She had let someone else park on the pull-through site she had planned on letting our friends use, so they had to roam around the grassy area looking for a level place. She had given us a site with a nice concrete pad, but there was no way to get level on it, so we also had to try several grassy sites before we could find a level spot. Fortunately, there were no other campers in this area, so we just kept trying different ones. The large grassy area LOOKS level, but it's not! (My husband was just about to drive away!) And, none of those sites have sewer. We asked if the price was the same without sewer and she said we still had access to it by pulling up to a site with sewer, so the price is the same! (Of course, those are all taken, so there's no place to dump!) There is NO bathroom and no WiFi. I had a good enough Verizon signal to use data. It is a pretty campground with some small lakes surrounded by grass, and the other campers (mostly permanent) were friendly. Then there was the guy who came home from work and let his two big dogs poop in the grass near us without picking it up. I guess if he lives here, he thinks he doesn't have to! We camped at Rei Lakes in a Motorhome.

We've stayed for both 2014 and 2015 summers as seasonal campers. It is a beautiful park. We loved the grass and the lake access for our Weims to swim. The owners, who also manage, and the help are very friendly and courteous. The problem is there's so much mismanagement and avoidance of uncomfortable situations with rowdy, drunk, weekend or holiday campers, makes this place a real problem for responsible campers.

But in 2016, they changed the deal on fishing in the stocked lakes. It used to be free fishing to all monthly/seasonal campers. No longer. $10 dollars for 12 hours. $300 for seasonal pass. In both cases, per person, not per site.

We absolutely loved this place until the changes in fishing, and the lack of authority by the owners/management. With proper management and more aggressive enforcement of rules, that is, quiet hours and rowdy, noisy, drunk parties, this place is a gold mine.

Nightly rate based on $400 monthly rate, including electricity. Price bumped up to $425 in 2016, with electricity. Very fair deal. We camped at Rei Lakes in a Motorhome.

This park is like you are camping in someone's back yard. There are many full time residents here. The road to the park is a narrow farm road and is hard for big rigs. We camped at Rei Lakes in a Motorhome.

Lots of room in park. Can walk around lakes. No restrooms or showers. No wifi or cable. Lot level, but most of them are grass. Not crowded but we were at end of their season - mostly regulars there for weekend, noisy until rain forced them inside. We camped at Rei Lakes in a Travel Trailer.

Lakes are stocked. Country breeze. Gave it an 8 because of no laundry facilities, shower house, picnic tables, fire rings (but can have fire at site), and most sites are all grass. Tents are OK and there are portable pots. Pretty views. Would definitely stay here again. Open April through Sept. We camped at Rei Lakes in a Motorhome.

Beautiful view of lakes. Good fishing. Gravel road. Full hookups. Few cement pads, rest are grass. Good satellite and Verizon coverage. Country location so no highway noise. Very peaceful. Gave it a seven because there's no shower house or laundry facilities. Staying for a month. Will definitely return. Monthly rates available. We camped at Rei Lakes in a Motorhome.
