Welcome to The Great Escape RV & Camp Resort. We have owned the park since September, 2008 and we are working hard to improve our park. Since taking over we have upgraded the electrical and water service, added and made several improvements to the sites. We have put in an in-ground pool that includes a handicap lift to accommodate all of our guests. We take great pride in offering the cleanest restroom/shower facilities around. We have added a meeting room in the lower level of the clubhouse that comfortably hold up to 50 people. Meeting room is Heated/Air Conditioned and has a full kitchen, including stove, refrigerator and microwave oven. Our clubhouse can accommodate up to 100 people. It will be open to rent for camping clubs, weddings, showers, etc. Due to Health Department rules this room will no longer have a kitchen available to camping clubs once the bar/grill is open. We are very close to opening the bar/grill. Once the bar/grill is open, we will be able to cater your event and have bar staff available to handle either a cash bar or open bar. We hope you consider staying with us on your next journey, whether just for the night, a weekend or an extended stay.


Conveniently located off Exit 49 off I-70. The park is located just south of I-70 WEST on Old Hwy 40 (frontage road). Please note: Some GPS systems will tell you to turn east on Old Hwy 40. Please go WEST (follow big brown signs to 'Maple Leaf Lake Conservation Area).
