Called to confirm availability of 50 amp site, when arrived only site available was a 30 amp. Site pedestal had a faulty ground which was reported to office. Office staff was a youth and very rude, informed us they were over booked and that their electric was overloaded. We took a refund & departed.
This park is 15 miles to downtown Louisville, KY and is the only real campground within 25 miles of Louisville. It is clean, spacious and well maintained. Hiking trails all over the place. The Ohio River is on the lower edge of the park with Fourteen Mile Creek to the east. The mid-week rates are the most reasonable. The park has full service sites and electric sites but no pull through sites. There are plenty of level sites, the better sites for wildlife viewing are on the outer edge of the northern section. Raccoon, coyote, deer, turkey and red squirrel roam through the park.
We have stayed in this park on 4 different times and enjoy it more each time. Plenty of deer and turkey throughout the park, trails and small lakes all over. It is tucked away so follow the map and not the GPS because a GPS may take you to the local race track and not the campground. The park has several pull throughs. We will stay in this park again.
A very nice little campground near Bellevue, IA park is in 2 sections the campground is not as visible as the overlook area so be careful. The park is clean, well maintained and out of the way so it is peaceful and quiet.
Although this is a no frills campground it was beautiful. We wish we had stayed longer, it is convenient to Custer, Rushmore, Wind Cave and Rapid City, Hill City and Deadwood, SD. Nice shaded sites with a mild breeze even in the mid to high 90 degree temperatures while we were there. Friendly/helpful host. Highly recommend if you are self contained and can dry camp for up to a week. Generator friendly campground..
Michigan State Parks are nice as any I've seen, but, their price policy is unfair. We were charges an $8 entrance fee just because we drove a motorhome and an additional fee for our tow vehicle, plus the overnight camping fee. BUT if we had driven a pickup truck towing the same length trailer we would have only been charge a entrance fee plus overnight fees, UNFAIR wake up Michigan you're driving tourist out of your state.
This park is closer to Marathon. It is a jewell of the OPP system. We loved it and plan to visit it next year, another park close by would be Rainbow Falls but I would recommend the lake section past the main entrance west toward Thunder Bay. Lake front sites are the best, beautiful views and the best sunsets I've seen over the lake.
A jewel in the NPS campgrounds if you are self contained. Buffalo & deer are right in the campground, neat. It is a beautiful park, enjoyed our visit and wish we had stayed a week. One night is not enough for this park. We enjoyed it very much and will return one day.
When we stayed I felt like we had not made the best choice. The operator was not in the office but acted like we interrupted his dinner. Maybe we did. We asked what the rates were and he looked at the RV and said $30 but no water or sewer hookups. The trees needed to be trimmed low hanging limbs; the place looked to be nothing but fulltimers living in trailers.
