COMMENTS & PERSONAL OBSERVATIONS OF THE TWO RV GYPSIES. These comments do not make the campground good or bad in general.

When making reservations over the telephone, the two RV Gypsies immediately knew that John had an uplifting attitude and would be a delight to meet. Upon arrival at the campground, their first impression of John was confirmed because he had an extremely pleasant personality that looks for the best in every situation.

Big Country Campground used to be a KOA, but is now privately owned and operated. It is a small campground. Their site map shows sites up to number 42, but some numbers appeared not to be listed on the map. There were only a few 50 amp sites, and the two RV Gypsies were lucky enough to get one.

They list TV Reception on their paperwork, but the two RV Gypsies only got two analog stations to come in via antenna. On their second day there, the two RV Gypsies noticed that the RV that was parked next to them had left and they had a cable box, so Lee hooked up to it and got a few more TV stations in, but they did not come in clearly.

John gave the two RV Gypsies a code for the Wi-Fi, but it was so excruciatingly slow, that the two RV Gypsies gave up on using it. Then on the second day, the Wi-Fi worked OK. The pool was closed, but if open, the hours were listed as 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. The two RV Gypsies did not check out any of the other amenities other than their site, which was full hook-ups and nice, but near the road, so of course there was road noise all the time.

Check-out time was 11 a.m. The campground kept its gates open all day, but to maintain campground security, the gate at the front entrance may be closed and locked at 11 p.m. All visitors must be out of the park at that time. Most standard campground rules applied.

Below: Signs entering the campground. Lee Duquette had to swing the RV onto the wrong side of the road to make the turn into the campground. See the two orange cones at the narrow entrance in the photo below.

At the end of the short entrance to Big Country Campground, the two RV Gypsies came to a nice looking office.

While Lee Duquette was checking in at the office, Karen Duquette photographed a few games and the attached laundry room, even though they will not be using either one. There was also a recreation hall.

Just as Karen Duquette went to take a picture of their RV site from the back, Lee Duquette drove into the photo. At this time, no other RV was around, but of course, other RVs came in later.
