Same quality stay as last time and as described in other reviews. Wifi is also still pretty much worthless and some shade trees would make this a superlative park. But at this price (PPA) who's complaining?
It is what it is. A gravel parking lot with side by side full hookups to include cable. OK wifi, good Verizon service, quiet, clean. Not all sites have 50 amp though, so if thats important to you make sure you ask. Ok for a night or two at PPA rates but I'd be wanting hookups real bad to pay full freight here with a Walmart in town. The motel part is kind of interesting though.
Nice place. Sites are large enough but closely spaced. Dirt roads, dirt sites, some grass, lots of trees. Pleasant staff. Marginal Verizon signal. If I was doing a quick in and out to Rocky Mt National Park I'd think seriously about staying here. Its so much better than any of the Estes RV parks and PPA makes it a real deal - even without PPA its less (pricey maybe but check Estes prices).
Very pleasant park. I don't think I've ever stayed in a place with so much separation between sites and the open space in the middle adds to spaciousness. Pull thrus are very long and ours was level. You can get cable on certain sites, don't know how many channels but is there. WiFi was OK - better than most not as good as some. The only real improvement I could think of would be some shade trees.
Very pleasant park, centrally located to town and the national park. Quiet for the most part, well maintained (grass was mowed while we were there). If you've stayed at other parks in Estes you'll appreciate there is grass to be mowed. Paved roads; friendly, helpful staff; sponsored activities. That's the park; its the individual sites that bring down my rating. It's an old park, sites are small and close together. The interior road resembles a college town rental neighborhood with cars parked end to end on both sides. That can make getting in a challenge for big rigs but the staff (see above) seems to have lots of experience directing all kinds into sites. Sites also could use some gravel and leveling work which is actually the only thing the park could do to improve the situation short of cutting the number of sites in half to make double sites. Because so many are crammed into a small space if you've got a riverside spot be prepared to have people walking through your site.
Nice smaller, well-maintained in-town park. Clean, quiet. It's on two sides of a street. If you've got a big rig park on the street or otherwise find out where they're putting you before pulling in to save yourself some creative maneuvering.
PPA rate. This is a tough one to evaluate. Just as an RV park it gets a 5 or 6. Kind of scruffy. Grass growing in gravel sites which are narrow. At your picnic table you could hit your head on the neighbors slide or rest your feet on their sewer hose. Long term residents scattered instead of being in a certain area. The entry drive hadn't seen gravel or grading yet. Good convenient location to overnight for which it works well especially at PPA rates. But I gave it a 7 because I could see where it might be a fun place to bring the family for a weekend with all the other facilities they have. Should be a real interesting mix when its full with weekenders, overnighters, and long term residents.
Much improved over our last stay of a few years ago. So its a gravel parking lot, but it's a spruced up gravel parking lot with nice long spaces. Incredibly clean bath and laundry with what look to be new machines. Nice helpful staff.
Very pleasant place to stay for a few days. Nice shaded, level, easy in/out sites. All utilities including WiFi worked well. Bathroom very clean. Folks at the office exceptionally helpful. US40 going by the front is quite busy which wasn't a problem because of noise but just getting out of the place was an exercise can be an exercise in patience.
Not impressed. Low voltage, low water pressure, site somewhat hard to level in, wifi so slow as to be unusable except very late or early. No Verizon data service but that's not a CG issue. But, its the only game in town for full hook-ups. Think I'd dry camp next time; my generator provides good AC and my water pump good pressure.
Exceptional value and agree with most of below reviews but we had no dust issues or road noise issues during the night. We were out in the day. In fact, but for lack of 50amp and proximity to the highway, I'd rate it higher. At first, I was thinking why not have some screening landscaping between the park and road. But then being gone all day, I think I like the idea of the office across the highway being able to see what's going on.
Rate includes a $3/night resort fee for stays of less than a month (?) You get what you pay for. This place costs but the facilities and services would make it worthwhile if that's what you go for. Amazing schedule of activities and support for them - extensive hobby shops, paddle ball, tennis, volleyball courts, gym, restaurant, motel for visitors, and so on and so on. Sites paved or gravel, no landscaping in the main rv section - individual rv lots in the park model area may have landscaping. You don't get a lot of useable room in the pull-thru lots Not much more in the back-ins. But, when we were there it was maybe half full so we didn't usually have a neighbor. We were there to see friends who winter there but if you're just passing through or otherwise wouldn't use the facilities there are likely other parks in town that would better meet your needs.
Rate paid is an approximate average for our stay of a couple of months here. Great place, great people, great staff and guests. (age trend would be north of 70). I figure almost all northern snowbirds. Just incredible facilities and activities. As noted it is mostly park models, but a lot of those occupants are current or former RVers. Experienced long term and transient sites and both are fine. As you might imagine, the long term sites are somewhat nicer arranged for more privacy but aren't as easy to get into and out of. Transients are easy-in easy-out and includes cable and electric. They are close to one of the dog walk areas and dumpsters. Only have 2 negatives worth writing about. The dog walk areas are pretty sad and a looong way from most of the sites. Facilities don't include a library; which, I gather was done away with to upgrade the fitness center (which like everything else is very very nice). But there is an excellent public library a few miles away (free card on showing local address).
Escapee rate. Good enough park. It's sandy and it's the desert. I can see where it would kick up with the wind but fortunately we didn't have any during our stay. Nice wide sites, ours was level. Supplied utilities just fine. Easily accessible dump site. Very marginal cell service and certainly no data service. Had I been staying longer I think my trucker antenna/amplifier would have taken care of it. Good WiFi signal at our site. The charge to users is OK with me if it keeps the price for sites from going up to get everyone to cover the cost.
Ok for overnight at PA rates. Older park, pull-thrus out back have good water and 30 amp, but no sewer. Then you have to circle around to hit the dump. The sites out back also do no pick up Wi-Fi, but there is a good Verizon signal. If you've got a big rig you might as well park out back to register - it'll save you a somewhat tight loop through the older section which could get problematic if someone there doesn't park all the way out of the road.
Interesting site layout, get there early and you shouldn't have a problem getting one that works for you. Could use signage at the entrance indicating where the office is (stay to the left). Walking distance to a couple of restaurants. No problems with cable and the Wi-Fi was exceptional - fastest I can recall having in a RV park.
Good for what it is. Makes a convenient overnight at one of the best rates (even without any discounts) I saw in this stretch of I-5. Primarily long term residents but pull-through and others available for transients. The park is kept up, but some of the units are on the older more cluttered side. No problem, I'm not going to live there. Road noise noticeable but not bad. Couldn't get in to wireless but there is a good Verizon 4g signal.
Very, very nice park. Conveniently located for access from the highway and to downtown Portland and nearby stores. Nicely landscaped and kept up. No problems with noise at all in the front/transient area. Good value for the price. I'd definitely stay again.
It may lack something in ambiance but it meets a need in a stretch of highway with few alternatives (boondocking, COE usually full). Level sites long enough to leave the toad hooked up, 50 amp power, sewer (at rear of site), good water far as I could tell. Friendly staff although it doesn't seem there is usually anyone in the office. I think they try and catch up with you on entry. Bathroom somewhat industrial but clean. Very slow Verizon extended network data connection, but it was good enough for what I needed, so I didn't pop for the WiFi.
Rate is an average of weekly and daily. I'd give it a 7.5 if I could. Well maintained park, lots of long-term folks but sites are kept up pretty well. Sites are on the smaller side but there is room for slides, a car and a picnic table. As noted, the park-like area between sites and the river is a very nice perk. You don't see the river unless you walk to it tho because of brush. I think the bathroom had a tile job not too long ago, looks good and its kept very clean. Couldn't find Wi-Fi but had a good consistent Verizon 4g signal, so didn't bother checking further. Staff very friendly.
An unpolished gem. Hope it doesn't get polished, rates would go up. Everything (EWS) you need in a relatively convenient location, at the edge of East Glacier. Wide, level, grass sites. Great view from front of sites. Owner/manager while not present in an office on site was personable and responsive. Grass was mowed when we were there. Bathrooms clean if dated. We didn't find rail noise bad, but then it was cool enough our windows (double pane) were closed at night.
Good enough place, quiet, and well kept. Some trees, gravel sites, some grass. Some sites more spacious than others, good maneuvering room for big rigs. Outstanding feature is the staff, friendliness and helpfulness. Lots of local info, particularly on the battlefield to include loan of a audio driving tour CD. I'd stay again.
Not a bad price for a nice KOA with no competition to speak of. (One of these years I'll hit Douglas when I don't need 50 amps to run the ACs and can stay for free at the city park). Good big rig access and sites. Staff friendly and helpful. Laundry clean (as was everything) and fairly priced. Wi-Fi slows down during prime time but where doesn't it?
Conveniently located next to Walmart (which by the way isn't well configured for overnights). Somewhat dated and pricey but perfectly adequate. I suspect because they've been there awhile without renovation, a site will be some mix of gravel, grass,and dirt. Ours was quite level. Trees need some trimming. Lots of long-timers. Interior roads gravel and OK. Pleasant, helpful staff. WiFi OK but slowed down at night as most do. It was actually pretty good in the early morning.
Rate includes park pass purchase discount. Great time of year to visit. Can't imagine what it would be like with when its full, as I'm sure it is during peak season. Quite nice, well kept up sites by and large. Looked like a good selection would accommodate big rigs. Shade or open possibilities. No WiFi in park (except at HQ and that was slooow, no Verizon service). Hiking was good for a state park, even had a couple of interpretive hikes on the weekend.
Rates are average of monthly and daily. Very clean and well maintained with great staff. Concrete pads on which most rigs should be able to get level somewhere. Pretty quiet, some traffic and train noise. Mostly long term residents at the time we were there. Somewhat different with no laundry etc but still an excellent value with a convenient location for College Station activities and businesses. They didn't do the park any favors when they put in the overpass. The only way its easy to get there is from the west. Anywhere else, best study the map and/or talk to the office.
Rate approximate after Escapee discount. Good place, quiet, convenient to what we were doing. Easy in and out of the metroplex area to where we were off to next. It is a gravel lot but well kept up. No problem with compaction and we're at about 30K lbs. Internet bogged down at peak times but that's not unusual at RV parks.
Used various discounts for rate. Newer park with in a large (100+ sites), open (no shade) area . Long, level gravel sites with small concrete patio. Well maintained gravel roads, grass in between sites but watch for fire ants and grass burs. Immaculate bathrooms and laundry. Probably more for rally's and weekenders than travelers but its convenient right off I-20. Wi-Fi from our site left a lot to be desired. I think we were fairly close to an antenna and it wasn't crowded. If that worked better we'd be talking a 9.
Paid weekly rate. Nice place to stop. Older facility that's been kept up. Has trees and some landscaping. Restroom and laundry very clean and functional. Laundry quite reasonably priced. Good size sites, individual dog run a plus if you want and can get one. Wi-Fi worked well. Real friendly staff. There was I-40 traffic noise but most parks in Amarillo will have that issue. Running the fan took care of that. In the airport flight path but no flights overnight. The only significant negative was the pool looked pretty sad.
There is no charge for a 24 hour stay. There is a pay box for voluntary contributions. Water and a dump point is available. No drugs, minimal railroad noise. OK for what its there for - a night off the road.
Price reflects weekly rate. It may not be a perfect 10 but its darn close to it (for us). Good access, large level graveled sites with some grass area. As noted, little shade but not a factor this time of year. Park does have scheduled activities in addition to the supper. Owner is very committed to having a quality park.
Price based on weekly rate. You don't get pools, playgrounds, river access etc. What you do get are a paved road, paved, level sites, small patio, good 50 amp, Wi-Fi and cable. I thought sites were on the smallish side. I'd guess about half the sites are taken up by long-term folks, and of whats left, not many would take a big rig so be sure to call ahead. Rocks, some large enough to do damage are used to mark site entrances so you need to be careful. Good laundry area, bath/shower not too visually appealing because of age but it was clean. Obvious effort made to keep the place up. Nice folks too. With prevailing rates in the area its a deal if you don't need recreational amenities.
Price reflects combined PPA / regular rates. Agree with all before me. Full or close to it when we were there. Good Wi-Fi, friendly folks, a little farther out of Marble Falls than I figured, but not a problem. No restroom/shower. A little different, but then I bring my own with me.
Price reflects mix of military and regular rates. Wonderful park, nice shady sites which would be much appreciated most of the year. Kind of a quiet, pleasant little park-like setting in the midst of the big city with all the big city stores just down the street. Well kept up. Staff very friendly and helpful. Support of the military with discounted rates for some days is a bonus. They could have been more proactive on notice for the water outages - 2 separate occasions of 2 days each and on the first they turned it back on at night. Too bad because where else can you turn the water off that long and not have it be an issue - as long as you get notice to fill your tank, fortunately I went to the office to extend our stay and found out about it.
Big gravel lot next to the interstate. The most appealing aspect is the total price that gets you all utilities: including 50amp, Wi-Fi and cable TV. We were coming off a boondocking stretch so the utilities were welcome. Good spot for a night or so.
Nothing fancy, gravel, sparse dry grass and dust. There are trees but not big enough to do much. Facilities old but very clean. Nice setting and price. I guess if you want fancy and trees, there is an option down the road for $10+ / night more.
Very good value for the location which is good for overnighting; it wouldn't be a destination for most. Well laid out, clean park. Very little shade but then it's West Texas. 50 amp voltage was reading high; just to be safe, went to 30 amp but others hooked into 50amp with no problems. Very clean if limited (one person at a time) tiled bath. Motel and grounds around the main building done up very nicely. There are trains, but we didn't have many and what are the alternatives (earplugs?). Gets a 9 for offering PPA rates, would be a 7 or 8 otherwise. Incredibly friendly helpful staff - but then again it's West Texas.
Very nice place, considering. It is in an industrial area and is basically a parking lot with close spacing. But its well laid out providing easy access for even big rigs, and the neighborhood noise didn't bother us because we're pretty well insulated (double pane windows) and we didn't hang around a lot between 8 and 5 on weekdays anyway. Uniqueness (see earlier reviews), helpfulness, cleanliness and price more than make up for those issues. And there is a 4 nights for 3 deal that would make it an exceptional deal.
Price reflects weekly rate and discount on daily. Good park, should be great for kids, nice play areas, lots of room to run, horses across the fence etc. Too bad some of that space wasn't put between sites, which are close - oh well. Off the highway and quiet. Free provided internet pretty spotty but have Verizon data so didn't work hard at trying to get it. As convenient as you'll get to Mesa Verde with a big rig.
Good park. Rate is PPA. Would be about a 7 or 8 if we paid standard Moab rates but PPA makes it an incredible value. As indicated quiet, some or even in a few cases a lot of shade possible depending on site. Good electric and water. Sites can be pretty tight for big rigs - again depends on what you get. Ours was level - didn't see any noticeably out of kilter. Very clean if limited bath and laundry facilities. Nice helpful folks running it. Directional signage on the way in leaves something to be desired (there isn't any) so note directions given - you'll get there.
Well maintained very clean park with helpful friendly staff. Great reasonably priced laundry. Conveniently located for Colorado National Monument and Grand Junction. Minuses are that grass and trees are the exception, it is indeed a big gravel lot for the most part. Despite location in an industrial area it is very quiet.
OK place to spend a night while passing through. It was probably a pretty nice campground at one point but its obvious they haven't spent any money keeping it up. Whats left is kept clean. Nice big dog run area. Friendly staff.
Price reflects monthly rates. Nice place, one of the better options in Estes Park. Great staff. Can't beat the setting and location. No problem leveling here, but I can see where some of the sites could have issues. Entry road was redone in late July but still has some washboarding. Keeping in the town spirit of making as much money as you can while you can in the summer, some of the amenities are a little pricey as noted ($5 pancake and sausage breakfast?). But in fairness they are optional and not built into the site rent. Verizon is marginal, and yes wi-fi is veeeery slow or nonexistent in prime time. I hear AT&T and T-Mobile are solid.
Not an inspiring setting but convenient, relatively quiet, clean and comfortable. Great folks in the office. Yes, pizza is good. WiFi worked well for us. Didn't see too many long-term folks when we were here. On check in, they tell you they have high water pressure but if you've got a regulator/restrictor you'll do ok. Kind of pricey but with truck stops being the main option in the area for an overnight, what are you going to do?
Good enough to get off the road for a night with 50amp for the ACs. Friendly folks. Infrastructure deteriorating but there is an obvious attempt to keep it clean. Lots of long term residents. Big rig possible but could get real interesting if the park was full, but don't think there is much danger of that happening.
Worked well for our short stay. Well kept up park, friendly staff, conveniently located. Sites not level but should be within the capability of most leveling systems to handle without any problems. Ours was off front/back. WiFi could be slow at peak times. Dumpster wasn't very convenient to our site (don't want to be next to it though) and there were no trash cans near our site.
Found it pretty much as described in previous reviews. Points of re-emphasis - staff very friendly and customer oriented, facilities very clean and well maintained. You're getting location not a lot of space here. There are some shaded spaces but looks like long term residents have them locked up. You'll have to work some getting a big rig in the first few sites of each row otherwise not a problem. Its definitely problematic if you must arrive/depart during peak market time but doable just requiring lost of patience and caution.
Very nice state park environment. Only 30 amps so if you need 50 for AC in the summer that might be an issue. Short hiking paths, Brazos River access. Close to I-10 with the metro area - big mall. camping world in one direction and less congested Sealy with amenities such as restaurants, Wal-Mart etc the other way. San Felipe itself is a very nice small town. If you're going to stay in Texas parks for several nights the park pass is a good buy.
Great park. Nice treed sites. Wi-Fi worked well for us while there. Amazingly quiet. Fairly level sites. Well-maintained and nicely landscaped. Went ahead and paid the $4 extra for 50 amp because it was warm and humid when the day we got there. As weather turned out could have made it with 30, oh well, only 2 nights, no big deal. Had a fair contingent of long-term residents but good sites left for travelers. Good location between Giddings and LaGrange, close to Bastrop and Round Top/Brenham. Easy access and graveled roads well laid out throughout park.
A very nice state park environment which includes inconsistent site characteristics, some not level, some with pull-throughs with tight curves, some short back-ins, and some with deteriorated pads. But get there prior to 5:00 pm on weekends and you'll be able to find one that suits. The Copperas Creek campground does have road noise issues, at Piney Hill the only noticeable road noise is the odd siren. There is a very nice adjacent small historic community with downtown shopping and other activities. Also is getting to where they have most of the big box options too.
Nice park, very quiet the night we were there at least. Great hiking possibilities.Quite scenic - views of Denali (if its out) from nearby Veterans Memorial which in itself is a nice area. Dump station has barriers making a longer hose desirable. Fresh water fill at dump indicates water should be boiled.
Location: Milepost 147 on the Parks Highway.
Sites of varying size, and levelness. One loop (half?) are pull-through sites and the only ones that would accommodate bigger rigs. About 30 minutes from services: visitor center, store, dump, etc. While because of the smaller number of sites, the 'activity' level may be less than Riley. I really didn't see much of a difference, you're parked in the trees at either. You can catch the shuttle every 30 minutes, after departure, you have 30 minutes to access any services: arrange/change shuttle etc. You might even get cell service at the entrance, can't remember.
Convenient place to stop for the night. One of the cleanest restrooms I've seen. Interesting layout for and access to sites but it evidently allows for lots of pull-thrus...no problem when we were there but I'd like to see how it all works when full.
