This is a park that can be rated outstanding or just average depending on your site location. For us, an early season visit meant a pull-in river view site which made it outstanding. Sites without the view are nice, and all are cement with large pads, convenient hookups, and enough room not to feel crowded. The park Wi-Fi was excellent, and the cable TV worked well. Verizon cell and data were good, and there were no obstructions to the satellite. Office check-in was friendly and efficient, and the office store is well stocked. Waldport isn't very large, but has a market and a number of restaurants. The view from the first row is well worth a stay here, and we'll return.

In our nine years of full timing and over 250 reviews on this site this is only the second "1" we have ever rated. Not because of the facilities, but because we were lied to by the host. On arrival, we learned when setting up that our site was 30 amp only, although we had asked for a full hookup 50 amp site when making the reservation. The host explained that "all the 50 amp lines were out" and that 30 amp would be fine. We explained that it was in the mid-80s, and with a large motor home, the A/C and residential refrigerator would quickly max out the amperage and using other appliances would be problematic. He shrugged and repeated that the lines were out. The next day we watched as two other motor homes pulled into sites next to us and plugged into the 50 mp socket (which ours did not have)and miraculously the lines apparently repaired themselves as they had usable power. Whether a ploy to save the park's power consumption and force us to use their laundry I'm don't know, but lying to the customer is unforgivable. In addition, when we made the reservation the host failed to advise us that the entry road was closed due to what appeared to be long-term construction. We had to call to be given alternate directions. And finally, we were treated to a display of the Weed Police Department's efficiency when numerous patrol cars arrived and arrested one of the long term residents. The park is for sale, and if sold the new owners should consider replacing the current host and some of the long term residents. There are other parks in the area - don't stay here.

Rate is for the weekly winter rate. We stay here whenever our travels take us through the area, and are never disappointed. The sites could be bigger, but there's plenty of room for our 40' RV and tow when parked along side. The staff is exceptionally professional and friendly, and keep the grounds immaculate. We watched our neighbor, a long-term resident, sit outside and watch movies on his computer, and he and others streaming video are likely the reason the WiFi seldom works. Verizon cell and 4G worked well and we had no obstructions to the satellite. We've always entered the park via McCarren Blvd - we disregard the "no truck" signs believing they don't apply to us - but the other route seems easy to use also. The Western Casino down the street has an outstanding Mexican restaurant, and there's a large shopping area nearby. The winter rate here is a bargain, and we'll take advantage of it again.

Our preferred stop when making the trip from Las Vegas to Reno. Quirky, unusual, and out of place in this lunar landscape, the park has exceptionally long pull-thrus and lots of trees. The WiFi worked well, the rooftop satellite wasn't blocked, and the the hookups worked well. Nothing to do here, just a quiet place to stay with a friendly host. We'll be back.

This is a regular stop for us when transiting the area, and is consistently superior in price and quality over other parks in the area. Security is important in this town, and being on the base provides a relaxing stay while being close enough to access I-15 and the Las Vegas Strip. Check in was quick, friendly, efficient, and we were escorted to our site by a host. Sites are both back-in and pull-thru, and on this visit we were located in a pull-thru that was long, level, and concrete with a large patio and table. There are moderate sized trees to provide shade, and sites are well spaced. Hookups are convenient and worked well. The park WiFi was excellent throughout our two week stay, and Verizon cell and 4G was strong. Base facilities are excellent, with a large commissary and BX, and gas was significantly less expensive than off base. The only irritant was the loud playing over loudspeakers of reveille at 0360 each morning. Lots of jet noise, but only during the day. An excellent value and great place to stay, we'll stay here again.

The friendliness and efficiency of the staff started our three day stay on a high note, and the park lived up to the good reviews previously written. Although located 11 miles east of Kingman, it made up for the distance by being very quiet at night and easy to access from the interstate. Interior roads and sites are gravel and good sized, and ours was relatively level. Most sites have a medium-sized tree and table. The Wi-Fi worked well during our stay, and Verizon cellular voice and data worked well. We didn't use the park cable TV as there were no obstructions to the rooftop satellite. The park sits above a truck stop and restaurant within walking distance making unhooking unnecessary for an overnight stay.

This excellent park continues to grow and improve their facilities. Convenient to the highway, the park has oiled gravel roads and level sites that are large and sheltered from the wind by trees and fences. Each site has a sense of privacy with the fences, and even though the park was full, it doesn't seem cramped. Wi-Fi would not work from our site that was at the outer edge, but Verizon cell and data were good. The trees are relatively small, so no problems with the rooftop satellite. Hookups were conveniently located and worked well. The laundry room, exercise room, and library were all spotless, and the hosts were very professional and friendly. A great place to stay, but make reservations. We'll stay here again.

Nothing fancy about this park, but fairly functional for an overnight stay. The owner is a friendly fellow who enjoys coming around for conversation. A small park with many long term campers, the sites are large enough for big rigs although you'll be parking on the patio. The water hookup was recessed into the ground and the spigot was covered by dirty water, so we didn't hook up, but the 50 amp power was good. Free cable TV with limited channels. No Wi-Fi, but Verizon cell voice and data were good. There's nothing to see or do in Joseph City, but for a quick overnight it's as good as any.

Rate is Passport America rate. If you're a fan of cookie-cutter, packed-in RV parks, then this gem is not for you. Here you get huge, 1/4 acre sites, dark, dark skies at night, and some of the friendliest people you'll meet on the road. The owners should give lessons on customer care, and the workers and other guests all act like a big family. A few long-term sites occupied by those interested in watching the night sky and bird watching in the nearby Chihuahuas, but none of the clutter so common at other parks. A beautiful garden with fountains is refreshing, and there's a small pool and a pond with resident (and crabby) geese. The Friday potluck was a great way to meet the hosts and other campers, and the food provided by the owners was outstanding. WiFi worked well, there were no obstructions to the satellite, and surprisingly, Verizon cell and data were usable. Try the green-chile cheeseburger at the little cafe in Portal, it rivals the Owl cafe in San Antonio NM as the best ever. Great birding, quiet nights, and outstanding hosts. A great stay, and we, like others that have visited, will be back.

With the Passport America rate, this park offers an attractive alternative to the overpriced parks along I-10. Easy access on/off the interstate, yet quiet at night. Friendly and efficient check-in, and easy to find sites. Pull-thrus are level and long enough to keep tow vehicle attached, and hookups are conveniently located and worked well. Free WiFi worked well and Verizon cell and 4G were good. Small trees only, so no obstructions to the satellite. The park is fenced and while minimally landscaped, is comfortable enough for an overnight or longer stay. A restaurant within walking distance serves breakfast and lunch at a reasonable price, and it's just a short drive to Old Mesilla. Restrooms and laundry are a part of the motel and have been an issue with some reviewers, but we didn't use them and so have no complaints with the park. We'd stay here again at the PA rate.

We weren't as enamored with this park as previous reviewers, perhaps because we were in the lower loop. Interior roads and sites are gravel, and our pull-thru was sloped from side to side and leveling was difficult. Pull-thrus are not long enough to allow the tow vehicle to remain attached. The majority of sites are very close together and all include a narrow strip of grass and table. Check in was friendly and efficient; however, the following morning we were confronted by an unprofessional worker who demanded to know why we had not disconnected the water the night before (the forecast was for a low of 38). The trees surrounding the rear of the park made satellite TV unusable, but the cable TV was extensive and most of the channels were clear. The free WiFi was intermittent and unusable, but Verizon cell and data were very good. The park sits on the edge of town and the sound of trucks slowing and accelerating was significant. Probably a great place for seasonal or vacationing campers staying on the upper loop, but for a shorter stay we'll look elsewhere when visiting the area.

Rate is based on monthly rate plus electric. This is a family-owned, quiet park on the outskirts of charming Wimberley. All sites are back-in and laid out in a U-shape against the trees, with a five acre meadow in the middle. The sites are large, with shade and patio furniture, but most slopr upwards from front to back. There are no rest rooms, pool, or other amenities except for the free cable TV which was excellent. And, with only 15 sites, the park is very quiet. Deer frequent the meadow in the morning and evening, and many birds also frequent the park. Verizon cell and 4G data were very good, and satellite TV was unobstructed. The owner and her mother are delightful to talk to, and genuinely care about the quality of residents stay. Not fancy, not many amenities, just a comfortable place to stay in the beautiful Hill Country.

Probably the best location if you're overnighting in Fort Stockton; off the Interstate enough to be fairly quiet and with easy access. Some dust on the interior roads but nothing significant, and our pull-through was large, shaded, and level. The cafe was open for breakfast daily and for dinner on weekends. Verizon cell and data worked well, but the park WiFi was intermittent probably due to the high number of users. No obstructions for satellite from our site (49). We didn't use the restrooms, but the addition of an area for local oilfield workers may result in some crowding. Nice pool, although it was a bit too cool to use during our stay. This is a popular overnight, and reservations are recommended.

Rate includes military discount. One of our favorite stays, this park is immaculately maintained and has a professional staff. Gated, with an escort to your site, and far enough off the Interstate to be quiet at night. Sites are large, level, with well-placed hookups and feature a shaded patio and furniture. WiFi worked well along with the cable TV, and there were no obstructions to the rooftop satellite. Verizon cell and data service were spotty but usable. Junction doesn't have much to offer, and the dining locations are best left to the fast food places along the Interstate. Our only complaint is the fine dust that covers the interior roads and ends up covering your vehicle. Other than that, a perfect place to stay.

Rate reflects monthly rate including metered electricity. We were very disappointed in this park. Although we had planned to stay throughout the winter, we left after three weeks due to our dissatisfaction with the site, the area, and the environment. While others have had a positive experience, it is likely that they were placed in the upper loop which has larger, better developed sites and is close to the pool and laundry. Our site, in the lower loop, was narrow with a mix of grass and weeds, and had a light pole in the middle which prevented the use of our awning. We thought it ironic that on making the reservation we were asked the condition of our motorhome, and yet the trailer next to us had enough mold covering the sides to grow mushrooms. We would have been embarrassed to entertain visitors, since they would have to drive past the ramshackle mobile homes ringing the sites, many with junk stored on outside decks. Train noise was constant and significant, especially at night, and during the day the noise from a nearby shooting range was a distraction. The cable TV was unusable, and the WiFi worked well only during the day when the many permanent residents were at work. Verizon cell and 4G worked well, and with only small trees, there was no problem with a rooftop satellite antenna. We found the weekday hosts to be efficient but largely disinterested. We’ve spent five winters in the San Antonio area and have been disappointed in the lack of quality parks in the area, and unfortunately this was no exception. We can’t recommend it and won’t stay here again.

A small park along the highway with a friendly host, but rutted gravel roads and sites so close that slide outs almost touch. About half of the overnight pull-thrus were occupied by permanent residents, and most were not unsightly. The water line was cracked and sprayed water on to the power pedestal, and the general appearance was one of disrepair. The free Wi-Fi worked well, and Verizon cell and data were good. No cable, but a clear shot to the satellite from most sites. The train noise at night was loud enough to awaken us. Franklin doesn't offer much for dining except for the Dairy Queen. We'll pass this town next time.

A nice park located four miles from the entry (commercial) gate. Gravel, dusty interior roads with concrete pads for the back-in sites and gravel for the pull-thrus. Ringed with trees, so not all sites are satellite-friendly. Nice hosts and clubhouse area. Verizon cell and data were strong, and the free Wi-Fi worked well. Many residents appeared to be long-term due to insulated water lines and personal gear stacked alongside rigs. That is a contradiction to the published rules. An OK park, but not worth going out of the way to visit.

Very convenient to I-20, yet quiet at night. This park is a comfortable spot for a nights stay. Located across from the Ameristar Casino, with a paved entry road and gravel interior roads and sites. All sites are pull-thrus, and are not long enough for both a 40' or larger motor home and tow without unhooking. The power pedestal was unusual in that the 50 amp plug was installed upside down, making it difficult to use with a power monitor. Good cable and Wi-Fi, and Verizon cell and data were strong. Small trees only, so a clear shot for satellite TV. A shuttle is available for the casino. We'd probably stay here again because of the convenience and price.

Rate is with senior pass. Another great COE park on the shores of the lake. A bit off the interstate, but worth it for a few nights. Interior roads and sites are paved, and the sites, all back-in are not as deep as most COE parks; in this case our 40' motor home just fit with our tow vehicle parked to the side. Many of the sites are on the lake shore, and all have large areas for the table, fire ring, and even a tent area. Power and water were good, and Verizon cell and data were weak, but usable. Lots of trees, but ample room for a tripod satellite. Beware the ants, they can be a problem, but at least they're not fire ants. An enjoyable place to stay at a great rate.

We don't often find a solid "10" campground at such a reasonable price, but this park is without doubt one of the best we've seen. On check-in the friendly hosts welcomed us to the area with an extensive handout containing restaurant, shopping, and attraction information and maps, gave us their recommendations, and escorted us the the site. The pull-thru site was absolutely level concrete with an attached large wood patio and table, and overlooked the fishing pond. The free cable featured over 100 channels and the Wi-Fi was solid throughout our stay. Clear view to the DirecTV satellite and our Verizon cell and data were strong. Convenient to the Interstate, yet far enough away to be quiet. Although the new owners are still making improvements, this park is already a cut above the norm, and we'll be stopping here again.

An amazing value with the Senior Pass. Close to the attractions of Nashville, yet you feel that you're in the middle of the forest. Roads a bit narrow, and as stated backing in some of the sites can be a problem, but we had no problem with our 40' rig. Sites are paved, mostly level, and many are very deep. Ours was tree covered yet surrounded by an open grass area for the tripod satellite. Has large patio areas with table and fire rings, and most sites are well spaced for privacy. Verizon cell and data signal was strong. Note: Our GPS had us take Earhart Road to the park. South New Hope Road is a better choice: is wider and without overhanging trees. A great park, but it stays full so a reservation is a must.

We're Escapees and always enjoy staying at club parks, but were a bit disappointed with Raccoon Valley. Easy access from I-75 and quiet at night, but with too many security lights. Easy check-in with an exceptionally friendly host. Interior roads and sites are gravel, and our pull-through was reasonably level. The sites are very close to each other; we had RVs on each side, and our awning almost touched the slide out of the neighboring rig. There's no grass to speak of in most sites, and the picnic tables have seen better days. There are very few trees, so a clear shot for satellite TV is no problem. No cable except for long term visitors, and the Wi-Fi cost is $3/day. Verizon cell and data were good. Most of the long term residents kept their rigs in good repair, but there are a few that are eyesores. Convenient to Knoxville, and it has a nice small but clean pool; other than that, no reason to stay for more than an overnight.

Rate is with senior pass. Staying here is the best of the two worlds of camping and RV living. Most sites are good-sized and separated by trees, and all have tables, cooking tables, and fire rings. Power and water were both good, and a dump station is located on the exit route. Rooftop satellites will be a problem with all of the trees, but we were able to find a site that worked with our tripod and portable dish. Verizon cell was strong, but data was weak and intermittent. Even on a crowded Labor Day weekend, the park was quiet at night. Easy access from the main road, interior roads are paved and sites, all back-in, are hard packed dirt and gravel. A great place to stay, and an unbeatable value.

This is a large park in an open area adjacent to the interstate, but shielded from most noise by trees. Easy access, although a fairly long driveway with ups/downs to enter. Interior roads and sites are pull thru gravel, mostly level. Hookups are OK, except the water hookup is located well behind and will require an extra hose. No trees to speak of, so clear shot to satellite. Free cable was fair, and WiFi worked well. Verizon cell and data were strong. Very friendly and helpful staff, with escort to your site. A nearby Flying J, but extremely heavy truck traffic makes it difficult to access. All in all a nice stay, nothing special but comfortable and reasonably priced.

As a previous poster advised, do not follow your GPS; follow the signs, taking a right turn when you reach the "T" at Highway 11. While it may be big rig accessible, I wouldn't call it big rig friendly. Access requires a trip down a single lane, winding road with a 10%+ downgrade, and the interior of the park is small and could pose a problem for a 40' or longer rig. Sites are mostly gravel, fairly level, and hookups are easily accessible. Free cable TV was excellent, and WiFi worked well. Heavily treed, so not much chance of using satellite. Verizon cell and data were strong. No host/manager on site; instructions are posted to leave a check, so no credit cards. A pretty place once you get parked, but too much trouble to make it worthwhile for us to make a second visit.

Rate is Passport America. Getting to this park is an adventure; through farmland and then a narrow, winding road that at one point comes within a foot or so of a house. This is a large seasonal park with only a few full hookup, back-in sites for travelers. Interior roads are gravel, and most sites are grass. Our site was within 8' of the laundry and restroom doors, and the night-long banging of doors was an irritant, and sitting outside with all of the traffic was uncomfortable. Active and noisy on the weekend, but fairly quiet during the week. The free WiFi was weak and generally unusable. No cable, but clear shot at the satellites and Verizon cell and data were strong. Fairly well maintained, but not really suited for travelers, this park is too far off the main roads unless you're visiting someone in the area.

Unfortunately, I can't wax poetic on this campground as did the previous reviewer. What looks to be a former KOA, the park is average in it's amenities and facilities, except that the pull-thrus are exceptionally long. Lots of seasonals ring the center where overnighters are parked, and many could use facelifts. The pond is overgrown and not all that scenic or suitable for fishing. The gravel sites were fairly level and hookups were convenient and worked well as did the free WiFi. No trees in the overnight area, so a clear shot to the satellite, and Verizon cell and data were good. Although a short drive off of I-80, the park was quiet and dark at night. A good overnight stop albeit overpriced.

This is a largely seasonal park located well off the Interstate, but worth the trip if you're visiting the area. A large park. The landscaping is nicely maintained with large areas of grass. Two lakes provide fishing and swimming, and there's a nice store/office. The owners are very friendly and seemed intent on making our stay memorable. The transient sites are long pull-thrus with large grass areas and trees to give more privacy than average. Wi-Fi is a fee service, except for around the office area. No cable and little broadcast, but clear views of the satellites. Verizon cell and data were strong. Warning - If coming from I-90, the signs will take you down Ledge Road for over 2 miles of dirt/dust. Instead, stay on Rt 528 to the town square, then take Thompson Road to the south entrance to Ledge Road, a portion of the dirt road much shorter and less dusty.

There aren't many options in this area, and this is certainly one of the best locations. Gated, well maintained and landscaped, and with a swimming lake and activities. We spent a week, and throughout our stay, the park remained quiet and peaceful at night, perhaps because alcohol is prohibited. A seasonal park, the transient section is an area of grass back-ins with some gravel scattered in a random pattern. Sites share water hookups, so pressure is often very low. No cable, but clear shot for satellite since the trees are few and small. Verizon cell and data were strong, and the free WiFi worked well. Another park that insists on using the plastic speed bumps that excessively rattle your RV no matter how slow you drive over them. Overpriced for the services, but still the best park in the area.

This is a huge community of seasonal campers with a separate section for overnighters. Interior roads are gravel, and the pull-thru sites were grass. Good hookups and solid Wi-Fi, but no cable although most sites have a clear shot at the satellites. Verizon cell and data were good, despite being off the main roads. Although packed with seasonals, the park is well maintained, nicely landscaped, and well maintained. Lots of golf carts, but everyone seems to adhere to the speed limit of 10mph. A bit pricy for an overnight, but with facilities and activities that make it worthwhile for a longer stay.

We enjoyed past visits here and were looking forward to a stay in the new area, which has long concrete pull-thrus. As opposed to the old area with paved interior roads and grassy sites, the new area for now at least, has gravel roads, and no shade or grass. Weeds have been allowed to grow unchecked and some are over 2' tall and have to be waded through to get to your entry door. Hopefully the sites will be landscaped when the rest of the construction is finished. No cable TV, but good broadcast and clear shot to the satellites. Verizon cell and aircard worked well, as did the park free Wi-Fi. A quiet base, Ellsworth has a good commissary and marginal BX, and provides security and a nice place to stay while visiting the area.

We enjoyed our overnight stay at this well-manicured, shaded park. A bit off the road, but worth the drive through Geneseo. Make sure you follow the blue campground signs to avoid a 10' underpass. Gravel interior roads and fairly level gravel sites, with extensive tree cover that makes using a satellite difficult. No cable, but good free WiFi. Not very crowded and quiet and dark at night. Verizon cell and data were strong. A pretty little park in the cornfields that offers a quiet night's stay. We'd stay here again.

We were only here for an overnight stay in this park which is largely seasonal campers. A short gravel road leads to the park, which has gravel interior roads and fairly level gravel sites. Lots of trees, so having a clear shot at the satellite may be a problem. No cable TV or Wi-Fi, but Verizon cell and data were good. Check in was at a small booth and credit cards are not accepted. Only cash or check. The staff and seasonal residents were friendly, the park is quiet and dark at night, and the surrounding area is interesting. Our GPS took us off the road marked with camping signs and down a long dirt road with low trees, so following the blue camping signs is recommended.

Convenient to I-90, this park provides a comfortable stay with it's tree-shaded sites and quiet atmosphere. Gravel interior roads and sites that are fairly level, with hookups conveniently placed. There are only a few satellite-friendly sites and no cable TV. The free Wi-Fi worked well during our stay and Verizon cell and data were strong. The friendly and helpful owner will escort you to your site and make sure the hookups work. Shopping in Mitchell is eight miles down the road with a Cabela's and other stores. A nice stay. We'll stop here again.

Easy access from I-90, with multiple fuel stations and fast food restaurants. Sites are gravel, our pull-thru was fairly level, long, and had shade, grass, and a glider for two. Hookups worked well, and the free WiFi worked well during our stay. Clear shot at the DirecTV satellite from most sites, and Verizon cell and data reception was adequate. Not much in town, but only a 15-minute drive to the Bighorn Battlefield. A word of caution, the owner has multiple cats (we counted over 20), and the office smell may be offensive or a problem if you're allergic to cats. A bit overpriced, but there's not much choice in the area.

We'd like to rate this park higher; the owners are the friendliest, most accommodating people we've encountered and the rate is very reasonable. Alas, the train noise and cramped sites are an annoyance, and this park is best served for an overnight only. The free Wi-Fi worked well, and Verizon cell and data were strong. There's no cable TV and trees could be a problem for the satellite, so ask for a site with a clear view when checking in. The sites share central hookups and are close together. Road noise is noticeable, but not loud enough to disturb our sleep as did the trains. Easy access to I-90 and the downtown area. We'd stay overnight here again.

We're willing to give the park a good rating for appearance since we've visited in the summer and it's beautiful. In this time of year, it's a bit bleak, and there isn't much maintenance going on. As a result of the sparse foliage, the train noise in "A" row is significant enough to affect your sleep. Hopefully they'll clean the permanents up in the summer also, since the piles of belonging is becoming unsightly. But there are so many good aspects of this park; friendly hosts, nice lounge and laundry, free Wi-Fi that worked well, and free limited cable TV. Verizon cell and data were strong, and because of the leafless trees, we were able to find the satellite - something not to be expected during the summer. Not as convenient to Missoula as another park, but easy access to the Interstate, and don't miss the Wheat Montana bakery in the corner truck stop. A nice stay, just a little far from town.

This is one of the better military campgrounds; nothing fancy, just long level pull-thrus, good hookups, good free Wi-Fi, all in a quiet setting. This time of year there's no host and only half of the Famcamp is open, and although it's the side with the trees, satellite reception is still good since they're mostly bare. Good Verizon cell and data. Base aircraft fly infrequently, and even at night they're relatively quiet. Not much close to the base, but a five-mile drive takes you to a Wal-Mart and a large casino. Nice commissary, walking trails, and BX complex. Worth the moderate trip off the interstate.

Rate is the winter rate, which also includes a stay six/get one free. During this time of year the park is almost empty; we had a large back-in corner site with a large grass and treed area and virtually no neighbors. The office staff was very professional and helpful during our stay, and all the amenities worked well, including the free Wi-Fi. No cable at our site, but clear shot to satellite, and Verizon cell and data worked well. All interior roads are paved and sites are level asphalt. Walking distance to the Yakama Nation cultural center with an interesting museum, gift shop, and restaurant. The casino is too far to walk to, but during the summer a shuttle is furnished. We found the casino to be average, although the seafood buffet was very good. Road noise was insignificant to us, perhaps it differs depending on which part of this large park you're in. Propane was very inexpensive and easy to access, and down the road is a tribal fuel stop with good prices. Not a lot to do in the local area, but an enjoyable park worth staying at. We'd stay here again.

This is a small park with few sites suitable for big rigs, and although the interior road is a bit tight, with care you can maneuver into one of the two or three long grass and gravel pull-thrus. Lots of trees, but a fairly clear shot for the satellite, with fair Verizon cell and data reception. The free cable TV was extensive and clear. Fairly quiet, with a few long term RVs and friendly owners/hosts and a large store. Considering that there are no sewer hookups or WiFi, the nightly rate is at the top end of what we would expect for a park with few amenities. Anyone with a rig over 32' should probably call ahead for reservations since the larger sites are few.

We enjoyed our stay at this compact, well-staffed park. Sites and interior roads are paved, fairly level, and each has a nice grassy area and picnic table. Maneuvering through the park's interior is a bit tricky, but doable. Fairly good WiFi is now available, and a DSL hookup is available for free at each site, with cables available at the office. The free cable was extensive and clear. Hookups were adequate although the water pressure was a bit low. The owners and hosts are very friendly and host a pot luck each month. The lounge area and laundry are nicely maintained and the washers and dryers are reasonable. A plus is being withing walking distance of the small downtown area and nearby fast food restaurant. We'll stay here again.

The park has two areas; we stayed in the upper area which was lower in price but had pull-in waterview sites. Interior roads and sites are gravel and fairly level, and while we no one on either side, it would be very tight when full as sites are very narrow. The free WiFi was surprisingly strong throughout our stay, and the cable TV was limited but adequate. The upper area has many long-term residents but their sites were clear of outside items. A paved walking path runs through the park and out into the bay and is open to dog walkers. Road noise can be troublesome, but tapers off at night. The entry road is narrow and very rough, but has little traffic, and to exit you must drive toward town and then back to the highway. All in all a pleasant park that's convenient to Anacortes and Whidbey Island. We'd stay here again.

Conveniently located, difficult to maneuver around in, but worth the effort. Friendly office staff and host who assisted in parking. A bit strange in that we were required to back into what appeared to be a pull-through site, and that we were nose-on to a city street. Sites were paved, level, and had good hookups including extensive cable. I can't imagine using DSL in an RV, but that's what they offer at each site; however, we were able to pick up the Wi-Fi from the office area. Verizon cell and data worked well. Nicely maintained landscaping and facilities, with a comfortable lounge. We'd stay here again.

There are actually two RV parks on the casino property. One is at the casino hotel, and has a dozen or so sites. The sites are paved but sloped and very close together; so close that slides would touch if there were rigs on each side. There is no dump station at this site. The other park is located at the intersection of highway 12 and Anderson road, on the southeast side of the intersection (look for the Shell station on the southwest side). This is a newer park with long, wide paved pull throughs, although the space between the paved sites is narrow and doesn't allow room for a table. This park also has good Wi-Fi, and there are no trees to block satellite reception. Both sites have good Verizon cell and data. Regardless of which park you chose, avoid Moon Road as it is narrow; you can access the casino park from the Anderson Road route. Prices for both parks are the same, and I'd recommend staying at the new park unless you have a small rig, since there is a shuttle service. There are no facilities, these parks are purely parking areas with hookups for casino visitors. There is no discount for players unless you are a big spender. If you make a reservation be sure and tell them which park you want to stay at.

A nicely designed park with easy access to I-5 yet secluded and quiet. All paved interior roads and pull-through sites with trees and grass, and surrounded by a high levee that makes it a quiet environment. Convenient hookups and strong free Wi-Fi, with a nice laundry room at reasonable prices. Verizon cell and data were strong, and all sites have a clear view of the satellites. We appreciated their strict dog policy ("dogs must be on a leash, and one end of the leash MUST be in the owner's hand") which prohibited dogs being tied outside and barking. Friendly office staff and residents. Convenient to visiting Mount St. Helens, a must-see when in the area. We'll plan on visiting here again.

This is not a park to come to for quiet or relaxation; it exists for only two kinds of customers, working locals and shoppers who come for the huge outlet mall. This is our fourth time visiting to stock up on tax-free clothing, and nothing has changed except the continually rising price. The interior roads are a bit cramped, but doable for big rigs although for some the tow vehicle will have to come off to fit in the space. Small grassy area, convenient hookups, OK Wi-Fi, and limited cable are provided. There's a constant roar in the distance from the interstate, and the early morning start ups from the many residents can be annoying. Walking distance to restaurants and the outlet mall. Not a destination, but an adequate overnight stop.

Certainly one of the better county parks we've encountered, but not as much of a bargain in price as many are. Long pull-through loops can hold the largest RV, and hookups are modular and conveniently located. Lots of grass and trees, but arranged so that most sites have a clear view of the satellites. Free cable TV was fuzzy, and the Wi-Fi was weak and would not connect from our site. Quiet at night, with a short walk to the river access and playgrounds. A nice destination park for families. An annoyance is that a $10 fee is levied for reservations even for drive-up campers. For an overnight, we'll probably look elsewhere in the area the next time.

Rate is Passport America nightly rate. Not a large park, but well laid out with level concrete sites, convenient hookups, and quiet setting. Friendly check-in was followed by an escort to the site. Strong free Wi-Fi and extensive cable was excellent, and a spotless laundry was available. Not much room between sites, but enough to be comfortable. Verizon cell and data were strong and there was an obstructed view of the TV satellites. A remarkable value; we'll stay here again.

Price is based on monthly rate. This is a friendly, comfortable park with level gravel sites, long pull-though sites, and solid hookups. While there is no Wi-Fi or cable, Verizon cell and data were strong and satellite TV was unimpeded. The interior roads are well maintained, and there's plenty of green grass between each site. The park is next to I-5, and although shielded by trees, the noise from big-rig traffic can be significant. There are many long-term residents, but they were a friendly group, along with the office staff. Our only complaints were the sprinkler system which left water spots on the side of our rig, and the number of pet cats that were allowed to roam free. Still in all, a nice place with a great monthly rate. We'd stay here again.

One of Oregon's best kept secrets, this park's location (shielded by Humbug Mountain), keeps it sunny and warm while the surrounding area is fog-covered and cold. Sites are all paved, and there are some pull-thru sites available for big rigs. Restrooms and showers were recently upgraded and are spotlessly maintained by the staff, who are friendly and willing to help if needed. There are great trails up the mountain and down the coast, open areas for kids to play, and a trail to the beach. Throw in the the blackberries and huckleberries ripe for picking and it just doesn't get much better. Although Port Orford doesn't offer much, there's a grocery market and a great restaurant called the Crazy Norwegian. No broadcast TV or internet, but clear shots to the satellites are available from most sties. An amazing place. We'll stay here again.

We consider this park one of the country's best and always stay here when in the area. Fabulous landscaping, professional staff, and plenty of amenities make this a true resort. On checking in, we mentioned the previous review and that we were surprised that someone had a problem. The manager was immediately notified, read the review, and stated that he would contact the writer and make things right. True, the transformers are placed in the living area of the site, and the sewer fittings are also placed on the neighbor's site; but what irritated me on this trip was that the sprinkler system sprayed my newly-waxed motor home each night and left highly visible water spots. I like the green grass, but they need to adjust the sprinkler heads. The free park Wi-Fi worked remarkably well considering the number of guests and the cable TV, although limited in channels, worked well. The shuttle to and from the casino was timely, and we enjoyed the evening buffet. An enjoyable place to stay, and we'll visit again.

One of our favorite stops when traveling Hwy 101, this park is easy to access and we like the long and level paved pull-thrus and amenities. Sites are nicely landscaped and many provide a view of the water. The free cable TV and Wi-Fi worked very well during our stay. A bit of road noise but nothing significant. We've always found the office staff to be friendly and professional, but be aware you won't be charged or given a receipt for your stay until checkout. We've eaten at the casino restaurants frequently and always been pleased, but for a real treat try the the seafood buffet on Friday and Saturday. It's amazing. Not cheap for a casino stay but nonetheless worth the price. We'll stay here again.

Oregon parks are well-run and Bullards Beach was no exception. A larger park, sites are made private by shrubs, and most sites are in heavily treed areas with table and fire ring. Some of the inner loop roads can be tricky and satellite RV can be iffy unless you have a portable dish. Verizon cell and data worked well. A long hike to the beach, but a trip to visit the lighthouse makes it worthwhile. Bandon is the most attractive town in the area, with good shopping and restaurants. An active "Junior Ranger" program and evening programs during the summer are a plus. For big rigs, "C" loop offers the most easily accessed sites. We'll stay here again.

Conveniently located along Highway 101 and adjacent to the casino, this park provides paved roads and level sites, some with a nice view of the bay. Check-in was quick, information about the campground and casino was thorough, all by a very friendly hostess. Those with jacks are asked to use blocks, and if you don't have them, they'll furnish them. We chose a back-in site, and were pleased that they are much wider than the pull-throughs. Fair free Wi-Fi (depending on how many are watching streaming video), good free cable, and good Verizon cell and data coverage. The park fee includes use of the hotel pool, hot tub, etc. The casino has a very good restaurant and an excellent Sat/Sun seafood buffet. A very comfortable place to stay.

Rate reflects monthly rate plus electric charge. This is an Escapees Park where sites of absent owners are rented to travelers. Sites are large, mostly rough gravel with pad, and landscaping depending on the owner's improvements. Utilities are very good, the water is exceptionally soft, and the free cable is extensive and clear. Verizon cell and data worked well. There are no restrooms/showers, so the park is restricted to self-contained units only. Residents are typical Escapee-friendly and travelers are invited to participate in all of the activities. Wild turkey, deer, and jackrabbits are frequent visitors, and the setting, at the end of a road, is heavily treed outside of the park and quiet. Sutherlin doesn't offer a lot, but it does have the basic services and Roseburg is a short drive down the interstate. We'll stay here again.

This park doesn't have to be this nice; after all, it's the only place in the middle of nowhere. But it is, and we always enjoy our stay here. The owner is friendly, there's some interesting aviation memorabilia, long, long, pull-through sites, and even some shade. Verizon cell worked OK, but data was too slow to be usable. We had no problem getting a DirecTV signal. A bit of road noise at night, but not enough to be a distraction. Maybe not the best park you'll stay in, but it's comfortable, affordable, and a convenient stop on lonely Highway 95. We'll stay here again.

One of the best military campgrounds in the system. Convenient to the Interstate and just across the highway from the main base with it's excellent BX and Commissary. Most sites are back in, huge, and all have concrete pads. The free Wi-Fi worked reasonably well, and Verizon cell and data service were good. The park is known for it's exceptional staff - everyone we met was friendly and helpful. A great place to stay when visiting Las Vegas.

An excellent park with great facilities and a friendly staff. An escort led us to our site on the paved roads, and each site is level concrete with a parking pad. Landscaping throughout the park is exceptional, and although near the Interstate, it's quiet at night. The free Wi-Fi worked well, and Verizon data service was usable, but slow. The location provides an excellent base for visiting Sedona, Montezuma Castle, and other area attractions. As mentioned, the showers are cleaned after each use, a remarkable service. We enjoyed our stay here and will return.

Rate is based on a weekly rate. This park continues to improve under the new Lazydays management. We dined at the relocated restaurant for lunch and were impressed; the food was excellent and reasonably priced. Security is very good, both at the gates and in roving patrols, important since the park's location, while convenient to the interstate, is in a less than desirable location. Every employee that we came in contact with was friendly, cheerful, and concerned with our stay - there's even a concierge in the office. The free Wi-Fi worked well except when overwhelmed in the evenings, and the cable TV was limited but clear. Our pull-through site during this visit was on an uphill angle, but otherwise the site and hookups were good. This park would be perfect if there were paved pads instead of the gravel which is difficult to walk on, but it's still one of the best places we've visited. We'll be back.

Rate includes the Good Sam discount. We thought we'd avoid the overpriced RV park up the street, but instead found another, less comfortable overpriced park. Dusty, short pull-through sites were close together and required disconnecting the tow to clear the entry streets. Poor Wi-Fi, but Verizon cell and data worked well. We were told the rate included a $2 for an extra person (over one occupant) because of a state requirement; apparently due to the water shortage. Had we been aware of the high price, we would have continued on to Deming as there is no park in Las Cruces worth $35+ per night.

This is a regular stop for us in this part of Texas and while not a resort, the park provides everything needed for an overnight stay. Much depends on which site is assigned, since some are sandy and short, while others that front the entrance road are long and shaded. Hookups work well and Verizon cell and data were good. The cafe offers a limited menu, and is staffed by friendly folks; we enjoy not having to cook or unhook to drive to town. This isn't an area of quality parks, be we've stayed here many times and always been well pleased.

Rate is based on a monthly stay. Getting to the park is an exercise in pothole and maintenance cone avoidance, but once on the post the roads, while bumpy, are fairly well maintained. The park itself is extremely well maintained; level concrete pull-through sites and large patio with table and grill, convenient hookups, and lots of room. Propane is available M-F and there are a few RV items in the store. There is no park Wi-Fi or cable, but you're in the middle of a metropolitan area so there is plenty of broadcast TV, and our Verizon data card was on 4G during our stay. If you have mail forwarded, be prepared to navigate a maze of warehouses and loading docks to find the mail room - we opted for the main post office instead. It's one of the best parks in the military, but what makes it less desirable for us is the the train noise. Be prepared for all day, all night trains loudly sounding their horns as they pass within 1/2 mile of the park.

Rate is based on a monthly stay plus electricity. While improvements are ongoing, this park is still a ways from being a "resort" and is overpriced for the quality of services. Sites are level concrete pads with patio and table; however, there is no cable TV and the Wi-Fi is not only not free, but is priced much too high. Far enough off the highway to be quiet while fairly convenient to Port Aransas, Rockport, and Corpus Christi. Verizon cell and Aircard service were good. Most residents are returning snowbirds so there is a clique, but most residents were friendly. The new management is upgrading the park, and many of the "owner" lots have been sold, which resulted in construction vehicles and noise starting each day. There are other parks in the area with comparable or better facilities that are more reasonably priced, and if we return to the area, we'll look elsewhere.

Rate is based on monthly stay. We've enjoyed our stays here, but it's worth noting that the difference between winter and summer stays is significant. During the summer, it's busy and expensive; during the winter, quiet and very reasonably priced. Sites are unique in that they are three spaces wide with a concrete pad in the middle. Motohomes can pull in and have a view of the river; others can back in since there are hookups on both sides. Sites are packed gravel and have a table and BBQ grill. This is a no-frills park; restrooms are not well maintained, there's no cable TV, pool, playground, or reliable Wi-Fi; it's just a place to enjoy the river. During the winter the river is stocked with trout, and there are plenty of fisherman on the river. The park is generally quiet at night, but there is no management presence after 4:00 so there is no control over noisy campers, and watch your step as many dog owners do not leash or clean up after their pets. Convenient to New Braunfels and San Antonio, yet in a rural setting. We'd stay here again.

We've stayed here many times over the years and have always rated the park highly, but each visit results in higher rates and less service. Our rate reflects the Good Sam discount and $5 coupon, otherwise expect to pay $44 plus tax for a pull through site. On check-in the younger of the two office staff was not just indifferent, but went out of her way to be rude. The free breakfast has been discontinued. Sites are level gravel, some with shrubbery dividers, and have no table. Free cable TV worked well but the free Wi-Fi was very slow. Verizon cell and 3G Aircard worked well. Convenient to I-10, but so close that vehicle noise is a distraction throughout the night. A nice facility, but increasing rates, declining services, and an indifferent staff have resulted in our decision to bypass this park in the future.

We stayed here free using a promotional coupon, but the advertised rate of $40 is reasonable considering the quality and location of the park. We've stayed here before, and the new owners have maintained the quality of facilities, except that the restaurant hours are very limited. Nice sized pull through sites have a concrete patio and furniture, and there are citrus trees with fruit throughout the park. Verizon Cell and 3G Aircard worked well, and the park's free Wi-Fi was adequate. Free cable TV was clear, and there are no obstructions to satellite TV. Security is very good, there are two manned gates and each vehicle is checked; a must in this industrial and deteriorating area of town. Easy on and off I-10, with a Camping World on the property. We were happy with our stay, and the location makes it a preferred park when we visit the area.

An oasis in the midst of a desolate area, this park features nice landscaping, long level pull throughs, and good hookups. Friendly office staff and an escort to our site. No cable TV but there's no problem seeing the TV satellites. Verizon Cell and 3G Aircard worked well, and the park's free Wi-Fi was adequate. A previous poster's complaint of no broadcast TV was an unfair criticism, Gila Bend is a long way from any city of size. Reasonably priced, professionally staffed, and nicely laid out, this is a quality park and we'll stay here again.

We've stayed here before, and every year the rate goes up but the facilities stay the same. Still, based on location alone, it's an exceptional place to stay - where else can you get full hookups on the beach? As always, the office staff was friendly and professional, and even called us to tell us they could change us to a better site. The sites in the old, and better section, get progressively sloped as the numbers ascend, so try to get a site below number six to get one that's level. The coastal commuter train runs behind the sites, but noise is only a slight distraction as nights are quiet. Verizon cell and 3G Aircard worked well, and there are clear views of DirecTV and Dish satellites. There is no cable of Wi-Fi in the park. Convenient to I-5, there is an adequate commissary nearby, and a gas station with diesel that is well below the off-base sites. No weekly or monthly rate, so it can be pricey for a lengthy stay. Overall, well worth the price; we'll stay here again.

Although a fair distance from the interstate, this large, well-maintained park is worth the stop for an overnight or extended stay. Three campground loops offer a full range of hookups, pull-through, and back-in sites and are ample in size. Interior roads are paved, sites are mostly level dirt with shade trees, tables, and a fire ring. The back-in sites have the advantage of being on the edge of large grassy fields. A fairly large store has a limited selection of groceries, and there's a cafe that is open on weekends. Plenty of bike and hiking trails, playgrounds, and room for kids. It was quiet during our stay during the week, but very busy, with lots of children, during the weekend. No wireless in the campground loops, but Verizon cell service and 3G, sometimes 4G, worked well. Very dark at night, and quiet during the week. A reasonable price for the area makes this an attractive stop. We'd stay here again.

A nicely maintained park, well off the main highways but the only alternative in an area with few desirable parks. Pull through sites have shared hookup stations, and if both are full it can be uncomfortably close. The cement pads are nice; however, ours had a concave surface and after a rare rain we were left with a pond. Good laundry and community room. Verizon cell and broadband worked well. During our stay there was no Wi-Fi at the park, only at the BX food court. The base is a ghost town on weekends, so be prepared to drive to town or cook at home. The adequate BX and Commissary are nearby, and the bowling alley has a snack bar and is within walking distance. Not a destination, but a place to stay when traveling through the area.

Price reflects the weekly rate. Located south of Lone Pine in a quiet area, this park affords great facilities, ample sites, and most of all, great views of Mount Whitney and the Sierras. Sites and interior roads are dirt, a bit dusty but level and with numerous trees for shade and privacy. Good hookups included free cable with a limited number of channels, and free Wi-Fi. Verizon cell and Aircard service was good. A large, comfortable clubhouse complete with indoor aviary, big screen TV, and coffee and snacks. The staff was unfailingly friendly and professional. A great place to visit on it's own merits but also to tour the Lone Pine area. Don't miss the movie museum, Alabama Hills movie drive, and Manzanar National Historic Site. We'll stay here again when in the area.

A relatively quiet and secure park located on the far side of the Gold Dust Casino parking lot. All paved sites, close together with a minuscule grass area and small trees. Maneuvering with a large rig can be a bit tricky, and the pull through sites are a bit too short for the tow to remain attached. Registration is a walk across the parking lot to the casino hotel registration desk. Very friendly staff at the casino and a good restaurant with daily specials. Verizon Cell and Aircard worked well, and the park's free Wi-Fi and cable TV were also very good. If full, this park would be very cramped, but we were here during the off season and there was plenty of room. Convenient access to highway 395 and Carson City downtown.

The list of negatives far outweighs any positive aspects of this park. Entering the park, you have to walk a fair distance to the hotel to register. The sites are adequate in size and level, with dusty interior roads and a trucker's parking lot next door that has big rigs entering and leaving throughout the night. Noise from the interstate is significant since it runs behind the park. Hookups are 30A only, and our site was a muddy pond since the water hookup leaked. Most of the park is occupied by permanent residents with junk and old vehicles on their sites; our neighbor appeared to have a salvage yard operation at his site. No Wi-Fi or cable TV, but Verizon cell and air card worked well. This park is overpriced at $30/night, and frankly we wouldn't stay here again at any price.

A great place to stay while visiting the Boise area. A small park on the National Guard Base on the South side of the airport, the seven sites all have concrete pads and paved access. The sites are short for big rigs, but there's plenty of room to extend into the asphalt parking area. Good hookups and a free laundry down the street. There's a fair amount of airport noise during the day, but it's fairly quiet at night. Easy access from I-84, and big rigs will have no problem accessing the main gate. Verizon cell and air card worked well. No internet or cable available, but clear shot to satellites and good broadcast TV. Reservations recommended since you will need to pick up a key for the power box, either at the billeting office or the main gate if after hours. A bargain location.

Located at the base of the climb to McCall, this park is acceptable for an overnight but is a bit timeworn. A long dusty entrance road leads to the park, and interior roads and sites are dirt with a bit of scrub grass. Sites are close together with little space for an awning or lawn chairs. Hookups were convenient and Verizon cell and air card worked well. No cable but open sky for the satellite. Friendly host was very helpful. Beware the speed bumps, especially on exit; it's difficult to hit it straight on and will rearrange your cabinets for you. We'll pass on this park the next time in the area.

Rate is based on weekly rate. An exceptionally maintained campground in the tall pines just outside Lolo. Primarily a park that caters to square dance visitors, it welcomes non-dancers also. Crowded during the summer, we had a choice of a number of sites with full hookups, and chose a beautiful back-in site surrounded by trees and grass, with convenient hookups. Hosts were very friendly and helpful during our stay. Verizon cell and air card worked well, as did the free park Wi-Fi and cable TV. Quiet with little road noise, and dark and peaceful at night.

One word describes this place: perfect! Located in the heavily forested Bitterroot Mountains, yet easily accessible with paved interior roads and sites. We were lucky to have one of two pull-through sites, extra long with a large clearing for the table and fire ring. No cell or Aircard service, but some sites (ours included) allowed a clear shot to the satellite. Quiet, dark, and peaceful at night. Close to the Lochsa River and surrounded by high, tree-covered mountains, and within walking distance of the lodge and small store. A magical place; we'll stay here again.

Parking nose-in gives a windshield view of the Salmon River, forest, and mountains, and the sound of running water makes sleeping at night easy.

Price reflects the internet special. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this park. Huge, level gravel pull-through sites, good hookups, and even a table and yard swing at some sites. While a work in progress, our stay was memorable due to the friendliness of the owners. They checked each day to ensure our stay was meeting our needs, and after recommending a restaurant in Stanley, called to make sure they'd be open. Convenient to shopping and the Yankee Fork visitor center, and quiet and dark at night. Verizon cell service was good, but no Aircard service.

We stayed here a few years ago and enjoyed our stay; however, this time was a bit disappointing. There was no one in the office, just a note to pick a spot and someone would be around eventually. No advice on satellite friendly, best for big rig, etc. We found a long pull-through site, level gravel with well-placed hookups. The free Wi-Fi worked well, as did Verizon cell and Aircard. No cable TV. The cafe was closed for the winter, so no free breakfast. Arco is just a stop in the road, nothing here except a place to stay while visiting Craters of the Moon NP. All things considered, $32 is overpriced for what is offered; we'll continue on to Challis next time.

Rate is Passport America rate. Nothing stands out while staying at this park; it's a flat expanse of semi-dead grass and gravel with good hookups. Sites are spaced well apart so there's plenty of room, and the pull thoughts are extra long. Friendly hosts will take you to your site and help park. No cable but clear shot to the satellite. Verizon cell service was good, Aircard slow, and good Wi-Fi was available for $1/day. Road noise is a factor, lots of trucks on the highway day and night are a distraction. With the PA rate, this is a good place to stay and we'll visit again.

Our pull-through site was just long enough for our 40'MH, and there was a space adjacent for tow vehicle parking. Sites are fair-sized, level gravel with grass but no shade. Very good free Wi-Fi, no cable but clear shot to satellite. Verizon cell and Aircard service were good. Owners were very friendly and were eager to please. Excellent large laundry facility with reasonable prices. Road noise, a distraction during the day, tapered off at night and was easy to live with. We'll stay here again.

A delightful park with an extremely friendly owner. At the foot of the Bighorn Mountains, in a small town with a great little restaurant (Crazy Woman Cafe). The sites are unusual; three or four rigs line up with water/electric on the right, sewer on the left, but it works well. All sites are well shaded with grass and a table; if you need a shot at the satellite, ask the owner. Verizon cell and Aircard service was good; no local or cable TV. A bit of road noise but not too bad. A short drive into the mountains results in beautiful scenery and we saw multiple moose on the back roads. A very comfortable place to stay, we'll stop again.

Like other reviewers, we were here as part of a rally. Site size depends on how many rigs and how they're parked; in our case ample room was left between rigs because of the relatively small size (690 units) of the rally. Not very level, the sites are simply fields covered with dead grass and dirt, with gravel entry roads. We were in "E" section, which had both 30 and 50 Amp power, which worked well. Verizon cell service was good, but data service was slow. No trees, so good view for TV satellites. About a two-mile drive to restaurants and shopping in Gillette, which has little to offer except the basics. We'll think twice about attending a rally here again.

Certainly one of the best city parks you'll find; grass, shade, well-managed by professional camp hosts, and to top it off, a stocked trout stream in your back yard. Adjacent to a paved walking/biking trail, the park is a short distance from playgrounds, an amphitheater where music is played during the summer, and across the street from the National Historic Fish Hatchery which is free and great fun. Sites are gravel and level, hookups are good, and there's ample shade. Located in the canyon, there's little wind. Convenient to shopping and the scenic Spearfish Canyon drive. We'll stay here again.

This in an excellent military campground. Close to the access gates, with paved roads and pads, and some shady sites. Friendly and helpful hosts, good hookups, and convenient to the BX/Commissary. Rate is $20 with seventh night free. A popular place, get here early in the day if you want a site; they don't take reservations. Diesel at the nearby base service station was $.22 cheaper than the Flying J, and there was easy access to the pumps. We'd stay here again.

We stayed overnight here to be close to a service location the next morning. It serves the purpose of an overnight stay; long pull-thrus, gravel sites, good power and water. Small trees, dead grass, a bit of road noise, and on the night we were there, lots of empty sites. Check-in is by phone and they'll send someone out to unlock the power box and collect the fee. Surprisingly, the rates do not change during the Sturgis Rally, although even then there were few people using the park. Convenient to the Freightliner dealer and Rapid City, otherwise there are much better places for just a few dollars more.

Rate is based on the "winter" rate. A convenient place to stay for exploring the Black Hills and Rapid City. This is a large, open park with small trees, mostly level gravel sites, and grass between average-sized pull-through sites. Very good free WiFi and limited, but clear cable TV. Verizon cell and AirCard worked well. Friendly staff and nice office area. Close to the road, but noise was largely limited to the daylight hours. One apparently permanent resident had two dogs tied outside, that occasionally barked to distraction, but otherwise quiet and dark this time of year. We'd stay here again.

Rate reflects the winter rate and Cabela's Club discount. A good place to spend the night or a few days; easy access off I-80, wide entry roads and adequate pull-through sites with full hookups. Although the water was turned off for the winter, there is a fresh water station at the entrance. Sites and roads are gravel, separated by grass and small trees, complete with table and grill. The office is only staffed during the summer; on our visit we parked during a store closure (Easter), found that there were no registration forms in the self check-in, and visited the store the next morning. Just tell the cashier at the register that you're parked and fill out the paperwork. 10% discount for the usual clubs, and 20% if you're a Cabela's Club member. Close to restaurants and walking distance to Cabela's. A great stay, we'll stop here again.

This park is an old KOA which, although in the process of renovating with new owners, still has some of the problems of an older design. Sites and roads are difficult to maneuver in/out of with big rigs without driving over or through adjacent sites. The gravel sites were fairly level, and hookups were good; however the free internet would not connect. Verizon Aircard worked well. Close enough to the highway to hear the many trucks, but tolerable. Lamar is not a destination, just a stop on the road, and for one night this is the best park in the area. We'd stay here again.

A good place to stop if using Passport America; rate includes 50A service charge. As previous raters have stated, nothing fancy, but if you arrive early enough you can get one of the sites sheltered by trees to help block the ever-present wind. The owners are very friendly and guided us to the site. Hookups were very good and centrally located. Verizon Aircard worked, but very slow; however, the free park wireless worked well. Dogs barking in the surrounding neighborhood were an irritant but not overly intrusive. Just down the street from Del's, the town's best restaurant, a clean, friendly place to eat. The PA rate and friendly owners make it likely we'd stay here again.

El Paso doesn't offer much in the way of quality parks, but even if it did, this park would stand out above the others. Paved interior roads, concrete sites and pads, sparkling restrooms, and a beautiful community center make this place special. Check-in was quick and friendly, and using our Golden Access pass resulted in a $12 day fee. Hookups are all centralized and work well. If given a choice, opt for the old section, which has trees and some shade; the new section has small trees and no picnic tables yet. The post is a short drive and has an amazing shopping area, the "Freedom Center", with huge PX, numerous shops, a 10-screen theater with first-run movies for $5, and restaurants, including a Buffalo Wild Wings. El Paso isn't exactly picturesque, but Sunland Park on the West side has good shopping and a casino. Surprisingly, the city claims it is the safest large city in America even though the border to Juarez is very close. No problem in the park, it's fenced and patrolled by military police. A great stay - the best in the area by far. We'll stay here again.

We'll echo what others have said - this is a great little park in an area that doesn't offer a lot in the way of quality stays. Nicely landscaped with some trees and shrubbery, the 50A pull-thru sites are wide and fairly level, but a bit short to keep your tow connected. Quiet and dark at night, it's far enough from the interstate to avoid the road noise, but only one mile for access. The host is extremely friendly and will go out of his way to make your stay pleasant. Very informal - no one stays in the house/office, so check in at the "camp host" trailer or call ahead. We had a great stay and will stop here again.

Rate is based on the weekly rate. This is an interesting park, with antique cars and trailers, old appliances and posters in the laundry and game room, and a nicely landscaped office/activity area. When we needed to change from a monthly to a weekly rate, the manager, who was very friendly, quickly changed the rate and provided a refund. There's a lot to like about this park; however, the sites are the front to back type, so you share your "yard" with your neighbor. In our case, we had a long term neighbor with a lot of trash, although since the sites are dirt/gravel, it's not a comfortable place to sit outside. A great place for a short stay, convenient to I-40 but fairly quiet, and reasonably priced. We'd stay here again.

With the discounted Golden Access pass, this has to be one of the greatest bargains you'll find. Paved access roads, paved sites, covered pavilions with table and grill, and panoramic views of the lava beds and mountains make this little park a gem. The pull-thru sites are easy to access loops, but none are remotely level; better choice are the back in sites; they also provide a better view. Our first attempt at a pull-thru resulted in a breaker that continually tripped. The host blamed it on our motorhome, but when we moved to a back-in site the power was fine. Not much in Carizozo, but there is a great nature trail through the lava beds at the park, and Capitan and the Smokey the Bear Museum and White Oaks ghost town are easy drives. We'd stay here again.

Rate is the weekly rate of $125 plus $20 fee to use our on board washer plus $33.50 in electric at $.15 per KH. We really like the owners, and the staff is very friendly and helpful. But $31/day for the weekly rate is just too much for a gravel parking lot, without trees or picnic table, poor water (not their fault), and significant road noise. The park has no septic system, so all waste water goes to holding tanks which the owner empties and trucks to the sewage plant, hence the washer fee. Or you can use the limited laundry at $2 per load, wash or dry. Sites are large and hookups are convenient, but sorry, we can stay at other places in town for less with the same or better amenities.

While convenient to downtown Roswell and with friendly owners, we were disappointed with our stay. The pull-thru sites are adequate in length; however, they are very close together and privacy is at a premium. In our case, the slides with attached storage extended over the patio area, and because the picnic table was bolted to the cement we were unable to open any compartments in that area. The security lights are extremely bright and annoying; the whole coach was lit throughout the night. On our second night, the wind shifted and we were treated to the smell of a feeder lot, so although it was pleasant outside, we had to close the windows and turn on the air. It's a shame; it would be a nice park with a little more attention to detail. We'll pick another park in the area next time.

This is an old KOA, composed of gravel and dirt, with a few trees and average-sized spaces. On the plus side, it's convenient to Carlsbad Caverns and the town of Carlsbad, has a friendly staff, and even gives a packet of product samples and coupons on check-in. But it is dusty, and is beginning to show it's age. Without the Passport America discount this park would be way overpriced, but the PA rate of $22 ($3.00 extra for 50A) makes it a reasonable place to stay. There aren't a lot of choices here; with Passport America this is probably your best bet. We'd stay here again.

This park continues its place as the best stop in the area, and was filled during our stay. Long pull through sites, some trees, and an excellent cafe make this a preferred stay for many travelers. Free Wi-Fi worked well. Nice pool, hiking trail, and office/laundry. Very friendly and professional check-in, but reserve early in the day if you hope to get a site. We'll stay here again.

Easy access to I-10, otherwise a pretty average park. Friendly check-in followed by a lengthy trip through the park to be able to maneuver into our pull-through site.

An exceptional park, but judging by the previous review, only if you stay in the full hookup sites. Our 40' motor home with tow easily made the turn-around at the end of the loop, and our site (15) was very large, hookups were convenient (except cable TV), and we had a large cement patio with metal awning and a fire ring. Views were spectacular, and we were treated to deer and javelina wandering frequently through the site, with the howling of coyotes in the distance. The cable TV was very good, and our site also gave us a clear view of the DirecTV satellite. Verizon cell was only usable from the top of the overlook, but surprisingly, the Aircard worked fairly well at the site. What makes this park special is the area; McDonald observatory and the Star Parties are unique and educational, the Fort Davis Historic Site is one of the best restored Calvary forts in the country, the scenic loop drive is beautiful, and the Marfa Mystery Lights are not to be missed. The park lodge restaurant is a nice place to eat, but try Nel's coffee shop in town. We enjoyed our five-day stay and will visit again.

Price reflects the Escapee discount. A nice park, with very friendly owners. Interior roads are paved with gravel pads and small trees. Hookups are in the back of the long pull through sites, so extra hoses may be needed. Free cable TV worked well, but WiFi was weak and barely usable from our site. Verizon cell service was marginal as was the Aircard. Significant road noise at night from the adjacent highway. Nice facilities and an inexpensive breakfast twice a week, but the price was a bit high for an overnight stay.

This is a well-maintained, full-service campground and RV park on Lake Nasworthy, about 10 miles from Goodfellow AFB. Interior roads are gravel, but there are concrete pads on loops that provide easy access. Sites are large, with table and most have shade. Nearby is a marina with boat rental and swimming beach. Quiet this time of year, but can be noisy during the day in the summer months. Sporadic office hours, but an on-site host will check you in. Verizon cell and Aircard worked well. There's not much in the area, and this is a hidden jewel of a park, at an exceptional price.

Just a gravel parking lot along side the highway, this park offers nothing more than a place to overnight. Some large trees offer a bit of shade, but sites have no grass, tables, and are only identified by the hookups. Almost exclusively long term residents; we were the only transient RV during our stay. Free cable TV and good Wi-Fi, and Verizon cell was marginal and there was no aircard service. The manager was very friendly, and the park is convenient to shopping and dining in Brownwood. This is the only park in town, and next time we'll adjust our schedule to avoid overnighting in the area.

Rate is for Passport America 50A site. Conveniently located and easy to find, we had one of the few pull through sites on a large concrete pad. Paved entry roads, and most sites are back-in pads with more than average space and some trees. Free Cable TV and WiFi, and Verizon cell and Aircard worked well. Very friendly owner, who walked us to the site and made sure we were comfortable. A nice little park, and the PA rate is exceptional. We'd stay here again.

Add us to the list of satisfied customers. Although it's not "resort" quality, we awarded it a "10" based on the friendliness, nicely laid out sites, free laundry, and great Passport America price. We were met by the owner on arrival, welcomed and told if we needed anything to call him immediately. Interior roads and sites are gravel, and the long, terraced pull thru sites are level and adequate in size. Each pull-thru site has grass, new trees, and a table. Back-in sites ring the back of the park and are tree-shaded and spacious. The free laundry has two each washer/dryers and they're the new high tech front-loaders. The free secure Wi-Fi worked well, as did Verizon cell and Aircard. Very quiet at night, and an easy drive into the town of Pittsburg. A perfect overnight or longer stay, we enjoyed the quiet and the price made this stay and exceptional value.

Nice managers, but nothing else was noteworthy about this park. Basically a big gravel parking lot with staggered pull-through sites. No trees, no grass, no tables, but lots of noise. Between the roar of the highway noise, the Jake Brakes of trucks exiting the interstate for the adjacent Flying J, and the sound of tires crunching the deep gravel, it made for a restless night. Good free cable TV and WiFi, and Verizon cell and Aircard worked well. Lots of long term workers leaving in the morning, although their rigs were well cared for. We had to stay here due to a mechanical problem, but will pass in the future.

Don't expect to get one of the 50A, water and sewer sites, they're mostly filled by hosts and long-term campers. The pull-through sites in the back are elevated concrete and while wide, are too short to leave a tow vehicle connected. These sites are 30A and water only, with a pea gravel patio area with table. No cable TV or WiFi, but a clear shot to sky for satellite and Verizon cell and Aircard worked well. Our site faced a decrepit trailer with multiple cars, chain-link fenced kennels with barking dogs, and lots of junk. Be prepared for a loud recording of "reveille" at 7:00AM on weekday mornings. Overall an OK stop for the price, but we won't go out of our way to stay here again. Military or DoD ID, or sponsorship by military, required.

Not a resort, but a good, comfortable, and quiet place to stay. Friendly check-in, with a reminder to get our players’ cards from the casino to qualify for the $16/night rate. Paved interior roads with long, concrete pull-through sites, each with a picnic table, grill, grass, and convenient hookups. Minimal cable TV, but clear shot to satellites. No Wi-Fi, but Verizon cell and air card worked well. Some light at night from adjacent casinos, but not bad. Fenced, with security patrols, but we didn’t see a shuttle and it’s a 1/2 mile walk to the casino. Shop the casinos for bargains – we ate every night for free with a minimum of gaming. A good place to stay if you’re here to explore the casinos.

Easy access from I-40 via a four-lane highway, and although it's a steep climb into the park, it's paved and not a problem. We had an escort to the site, a long (70') pull-through. Interior roads and sites are gravel, and our site was not very level. No trees, a crumbling table, and a fire ring at each site. Free cable TV and good free WiFi. Verizon cell and Aircard worked well. Our coach was lit at night by a large, bright security light adjacent to the pull-through sites. The hosts state that the new owners are putting a great deal of work into the park; it's an old KOA and it needs it. Not a bad stay, but not a memorable one, either.

Although a park with average amenities, we gave this park an extra point for the friendliness of the owners and the Passport America rate. It's a very sharp right turn into the park, a bit sporty for a 40' pusher and tow, and after that, it's all gravel roads and sites. At check-in, the owners went out of their way to be helpful, to include giving us a card with their cell number to call if we needed anything. The park is in rolling hills, so finding a level site is a challenge, but ours was fairly level although the tow vehicle was on a slope. Hookups were good, and the free WiFi was steady and fairly strong. Verizon cell and Aircard also worked well. The park was fairly dark and very quiet at night, but this time of year it was fairly empty. The park is convenient to Mammoth Cave and other attractions, with plenty of restaurants and shopping at the interstate crossing. We'd stay here again.

One of Ohio's best state parks - a variety of sites, both near the water and higher up in the woods. Pricey without the Passport America rate which is good Sunday through Thursday. Paved roads and sites, although our full-hookup site was a bit short for a 40' MH and was not level. The reservation site can tell you if you can use your satellite, sites on the lower level are open, but the upper level is has many trees. Nice facilities, with a well-equipped store. Quiet and dark at night, this is probably a crowded and noisy park on summer weekends. Verizon cell and Aircard worked poorly, there is no broadcast TV or cable. Some of the best sites near the water cannot be reserved, but you can make a reservation and switch on arrival. A great park - we'll stay here again.

We had an enjoyable three day stay at this park, quiet, dark at night, and with friendly hosts. The road to the park can be intimidating, with a 90-degree turn, construction, and a narrow road to the entrance, but its doable in a 40' motor home. There are a variety of sites; if you want a clear view to the satellite be sure to ask. Some sites are very long pull throughs, with grass and shade. You can see which ones by looking at their web site (I recommend 41 & 42). Our site was not level, but hookups were conveniently placed. Verizon Cell and Aircard worked well, and the park WiFi was adequate. Clean laundry and game room with book exchange. An above-average park that we'd stay in again.

This was an interesting campground. First, beware the driving instructions and your GPS. The address for the office requires a left turn off Rt 832; this will take you to a dead end gate at the office. The actual campground is on the right side, marked by a small sign. You park and cross the street to the office, or find a place and then register. We were lucky that a staff member was nearby and he directed us to a level, concrete pad. Four sites share a power pole; 3 plugs are 30A, only one is 50A, so whoever gets there first gets the 50A. The sites are located in a treed area and satellite reception is nil, but the free cable TV was very good. There is no WiFi, but Aircard and Verizon cell were adequate. The place is a crazy-quilt of pads, sand spaces for tents, dumpsters, and lots of permanent units. It was OK for a mid-September stay, but would be like a giant tailgate party during the summer. (The staff member said that they had over 200 tents on the beach over Labor Day). We stayed here because of the Passport America rate, but would not consider staying here for the full price, especially during the summer.

Another great Ohio State Park that accepts Passport America. A wooded, rolling area, with paved roads and mostly level pads. Although the reservation site stops at 35' motorhomes, our 40' rig fit without a problem, be sure and check with the office for suitable sites. We were able to see the DirecTV satellite from our site (96), but most sites are blocked by trees. Verizon cell and Aircard worked well. Quiet and dark at night, this beautiful park is a great value and we'll stay here again.

This is a very nice park; paved streets, adequate to large sites, and a lovely setting in a treed environment surrounding a lake. We were helped by hosts that were very friendly. Only a few sites are big rig friendly: the data on the reservation system is not entirely accurate, although we did appreciate knowing which sites were DirecTV friendly. Verizon AirCard and Cell service were marginal but usable. Nice trails, great dump station, and good fishing access. This would be a "10" for us if it had water and sewer hookup sites. We'd stay here again.

This is a large, very well maintained park primarily populated by seasonal campers. Rate is based on the monthly rate; the daily rate of $39 is on the high end although probably worth it for families. As mentioned, there is a nice pool, playground, ball fields, pavilion, and store. Sites are gravel, mostly level, a mix of back-ins and pull-throughs, some rather large with shade. The pet policy is that you must keep your dog on your site: if you want to walk it you have to drive to the "non-camping" area. A hassle for dog owners, but for a change there was no danger of stepping on droppings, and we consider this policy a plus. The park is used for large parties and can be very noisy on weekends, especially holidays. The park Wi-Fi was often weak and intermittent, but Verizon cell and Aircard service were good. Our only complaints are that the workampers aren't careful when mowing and chipped our motor home's paint, and that the water, depending on the amount in the well, can smell terrible and leaves iron deposits. It is a very nicely maintained park and the owner and most of the staff were very friendly. The best park in the Cleveland area; easy access to I-71 and I-76. We'd stay here again.

This is a large, bustling family resort park with many seasonals, and it's an easy three miles off of the interstate. Our site was a level gravel pull through in the trees with good hookups. The friendly woman in the office told us to pull as far forward in the site and our satellite would work, and she was right. There is no cable, but WiFi is available at cost. Verizon cell and Air-card service were good. Thanks to a rain shower, the park was quiet and dark throughout the night. A great destination park, but too pricey for an overnight at $39, and they offer no discounts.

What a pleasant surprise - a beautiful little park in the outskirts of Geneseo. Mature trees and grass, level gravel sites, and a friendly and helpful office staff made for a great stay. Good Verizon and Aircard service. Quiet and dark at night. Beware following your GPS, the most direct route takes you to an underpass of 10' - follow the blue "camping" signs to play it safe, and look for the park after you cross the river. One of those neat, out of the way places you wish there were more of. We'll stay here again.

After checking in at the motel office and getting a key to turn on the water, you enter the park area through a rutted, rough truck stop parking lot. There are lots of sites, but our first choice had low voltage and we had to choose another; there's not much of a selection problem, they're all narrow - in fact our motorhome wheels would not fit entirely on the rutted, uneven gravel portion but hung over onto the grass. Good thing there was no one parked next to us, our slides would have touched. Lots of road noise from the interstate, and the bright lights of the truck stop lit up the night. All this for the exorbitant rate of $32. They're the only place for miles and take advantage of it - don't patronize this place, it's a dump.

This is a consistently well run park along the I-5 corridor with walking access to one of the better outlet centers. Front row pull-through sites are paved, level, and have a nice grass area and some shade; but if you want a picnic table, you have to "rent" one and have it delivered. Lots of permanent residents, and each morning it can be noisy as they go off to work. Some road noise, but not bad. Has a good store, nice pool, and adequate laundry. Cable TV and WiFi worked well.

Verizon AirCard and Cell service were good. Clean, well maintained, and with friendly hosts.

Wow! From the moment you enter the park you have to be impressed: immaculate, well designed, and with a professional staff. We were led to our ample, cement pull-through with it's area of artificial turf and table. The sites have plenty of room to park the tow vehicle. Far enough from the interstate to remain quiet and dark at night. Great neighborhood with superior shopping. Verizon AirCard and cell service were very good. We'd stay here again.

Our stay here was pleasant only because there were very few rigs, due to the time of year. With empty spaces on each side of our fairly level gravel site, we had ample room for slides and awning if needed; however if either side is occupied, it is a very tight fit on either side. The office also has a lounge and free continental breakfast in the morning. Some train and road noise, and bright lights if you're near the office. Verizon AirCard and cell service were good. Overall, a bit pricey for what you get, especially if sites on both sides are occupied. We'll try another park in the area next time.

Having trouble finding an open campground due to the hard winter, we called and spoke to the owner who invited us in although the park was not officially open. We were met at the office, taken to the site, and given a friendly welcome to the park, including a warning not to step in the moose droppings. Although we didn't see the moose, we had a great stay; quiet, dark, with level grass sites and good hookups. Verizon Aircard was unusable and cell service marginal. The free WiFi was spotty but probably works better when the park is open. A nice little park next to the Fort Bridger State Park. We'd stay here again.

Overpriced for an overnight stay but not much else available this time of year. Gravel, not very level sites, had a patio & table but were trashy. A few miles from town in a less than scenic but probably safe area. Good hookups, Verizon Aircard and cell service. Probably a good place for a stay with children during the summer.

We were the only visitors to this park for a four-day stay in fairly cold weather with snow. Friendly hosts, easy to access sites with good hookups. The gravel sites were not very level, and although there's no cable or broadcast TV, the Wi-Fi worked well. Verizon air card and cell service were good. Rate reflected $5/day extra charge for 50A service. We'd stay here again.

Sometimes a campground stay is made better by the friendliness of the owners, and this was one of those. Although struggling to open after a horrible winter, the owners went out of their way to make sure the water worked, our site was clear, and that we had a good overnight stay. Bare trees and brown grass with snow in the shade detracted from the appearance, but this looks like a pretty, tree-shaded park in the summer. Verizon Aircard and cell service were good and the park was dark at night with only a minimum of noise from the interstate. We enjoyed our stay and will stay here again.

Convenient to I-29 on a scary, narrow dirt road, then down a hill to the parking area. The new owner is making visible improvements, and our site was level gravel with good hookups. Verizon Aircard and cell service were very good. Quiet and dark except for freeway noise, this was a good overnight and probably a nice destination park in the summer. The reasonable price made this a worthwhile stay.

No grass, shade, or tables, but your $25 gets you a friendly greeting, good power and water, and a safe place to spend the night. Yes, the trains are noisy, but this is a park that doesn't claim to be a resort. Good Verizon Aircard and cell service. Easy in/out on a short gravel road. We'd stay here again if necessary.

While not a destination park, it serves the purpose of a good overnight stop. Big, level pull-thrus, 50A power, and quiet at night. On a dusty 1/4 mile road; watch for the park on the left. Verizon AirCard and phone service was very good. Very informal check-in; if no one is around, drop the money in a slot. Owner is very friendly and the Passport America rate is a bargain.

While as full timers we don't normally stay at KOAs, this park has become an exception; its large sites, tree-covered location next to a river, quiet setting, and security gate make it a great overnight stay. Good free Wi-Fi (for a change) and OK cable TV enhanced our stay. Friendly owners, and the campground ducks also were a plus. We'll stay here again.

This is a great little park centrally located and nicely landscaped; we've been looking for a replacement stay for the Hacienda Resort which has become outrageously overpriced, and this is a great replacement. Wide interior roads, large back-in sites, and big trees (good cable is free) make this park an enjoyable stay. Nice people, good value; we'll stay here again.

This is a long-term snowbird park, not an overnight stop. For $28 (cash only) you get a spot in a gravel parking lot on the periphery of the park with water and electric only - no sewer hookup, table, trees; just dust and train noise. Our bad, we should have done more research; don't make our mistake, avoid this park if traveling, there are better, less expensive parks around. We'll avoid this park in the future.

This park is limited to Escapees members and their guests; you rent the site of an absent owner for the $15 plus metered electric. An absolutely gorgeous park with great facilities. The park roads are paved and wind through the oaks and manzanilla. Sites are large and depending on how much the owner has added, very nice with patios, bird feeders, and other touches. The staff and residents are friendly and helpful, and you're invited to all of the activities. Good Verizon cell and Air Card, and most sites have free cable. It's almost worth the annual cost of membership just to come here. It's a special place and we'll stay here again.

We enjoyed our overnight stay here; check in was quick, and the paved road to our concrete pad which was level and adequate in size. Hookups are in the corner of the road and pad; if you have a tow you'll need all a long water hose and sewer extensions to reach the hookups and be forward enough to for the tow to clear the road. There is no cable and the WiFi didn't work during our stay, but Verizon cell and AirCard worked well. A park-like setting, with nice landscaping and quiet and dark at night. Probably a nice destination in the summer, although the area doesn't seem to offer much. We'd stay here again while passing through.

This park turned out to be a good value - $25 at the kisosk, then on to your choice of large pull-through sites. Ours was level, had good hookups, and was nicely landscaped. Not a destination park, since there's nothing for children, no tables or grills, and the walk to the restrooms (at the truck stop) is not something you want to do in the middle of the night. It is far enough from the trucks for a quiet night. Verizon cell and AirCard worked well, and the park now has free WiFi which was very strong. Don't count on the shuttle to the casino, each time we tried they were "busy". We'd stay here again.

This is a hidden gem - your $25 gets you a large, level cement pad, great hookups, cable TV, excellent Wi-Fi, and a shady, quiet location. Don't let the drive through the used car lot fool you; this is a quality park. Some train noise at night but not bad. We'd stay here again.

We pulled in to this location due to bad weather and a review that didn't sound too bad; however, just the appearance of the motel should have been a clue that this was not going to be a quality experience. For $29 you get a tight pull through between antique 30 amp power pedestals, with your tow in a grass/dirt lot and most of the coach hanging into the parking lot. Only the cable TV kept the rating lower. Seedy looking permanent units, noise from the highway, and big rigs using the space behind all night contributed to a restless night. A good $12 stop, but for $29 it's a ripoff. We'll drive through the area in a blizzard next time rather than stop here.

Oregon has one of the best park systems in the country, and Harris beach is a great example of how a state park should operate. We reserved a site ($8 Reserve America fee) since much of the park is closed down during the winter, but were able to trade on arrival for a larger first-come site with high on the bluff with an ocean view. We had an incredible view of the water and sea stacks, and fell asleep at night to the sound of the pounding waves. A large volunteer force keeps the place looking like Disneyland, and all of the facilities are immaculate. One of the few parks with Wi-Fi (pay) and excellent cable TV (included in site fee). Verizon Cell and air card signal were very strong. Although the best sites with views are 30A and without sewer, this is a real bargain at the winter rate. We'll stay here again.

The price reflects the weekly rate and player discount. This is a great place to stay if visiting the area or stopping overnight. Sites and roads are paved, and although crowned to allow water runoff, fairly level. Hookups are convenient and a small strip with plants separates each site. There are no picnic tables or fires allowed. Verizon cell and AirCard were strong; however, the free Wi-Fi, as is too often typical, did not work at our site. The free cable TV was excellent in quality and number of channels. Road noise is minimal, and the casino has is a short walk (or shuttle bus ride), and has reasonable restaurants. The park fee includes use of the hotel pool, spa, and exercise room. Friendly staff in the office, good facilities, and good location make this a great value. We'd stay here again.

The price reflects the weekly rate during the winter season. An exceptional value and still one of the best parks on the coast. We had a harbor site that allowed us to pull in and have a great view of harbor seals and waterfowl. Sites are paved and level, with picnic table and parking area. Free cable was extensive and clear; however, the free Wi-Fi did not work the entire week. Verizon cell and Air Card worked very well. The park does not allow ATVs to be run within the park limits, a plus in this area where many people come to play on the dunes. Within walking distance of the few shops and restaurants open this time of year. Quiet and mostly empty this time of year, but still a beautiful, well-cared for facility. We'll stay here again.

An easy to find, nicely located park just off Highway 101 on the North side of Lincoln City. All paved roads and sites, terraced on a hill overlooking the lake. While our site was a long end of row pull-through (60') with lots of room, it was not level and required a good deal of raising/blocking on one side. Great cable TV, and the free Wi-Fi generally worked well. Good Verizon cell and air card service. No permanent residents that we could see, only host sites and travelers. Nicely landscaped, clean, and quiet and dark at night. Hookups were all very good; it's nice to be in an area where the water quality is very good. We'll stay here again if in the area.

We spent a week at this great little park with it's pull-in sites on the golf course. Convenient to Astoria and other Columbia River attractions, the large, level gravel sites and manicured green grass provided plenty of room in this quiet location. Free W-iFi is provided and works fairly well; Verizon cell and Air Card service was very good. No facilities other than a great site and view which is fine with us; but not a family campground. The friendly folks that checked us in provided us with an armload of maps and guidebooks. A place we'll return to.

This is one of those parks that you hope to find at each destination; well run, well designed, and reasonable in price. It's located close to the marina (not quite close enough to walk), the sites are back-in,s but if not crowded, pulling through from the site in back is allowed. Sites are level gravel, adequately sized, with a table and fire ring. Free limited (22-channel) cable TV is provided. The park was quiet and dark at night, and road noise is minimal. Verizon cell and Aircard were marginal but worked, and the free park Wi-Fi was not working except for one day of our 9-day stay. Lots of workcampers keep things running smoothly, and the owner is friendly and helpful. A great place to stay in an interesting small coastal town. We'd stay here again.

We spent a disappointing week here. This is one of those parks that will be highly rated by smaller units, and for those of us with large motorhomes, be appropriately poorly rated. On one hand, it is nicely landscaped, with flowers, bird feeders, and ponds, and the staff is very friendly. On the other, the sites are too small for motorhomes with slides, not all are 50A, and the 30A voltage is marginal. It's not possible to get into and out of many sites with a tow attached since backing up will be necessary to get in between the trees and into the terraced sites. The park is heavily treed making satellite reception spotty, and there is no cable TV and little broadcast. There are many permanent residents, and while their sites are neat and segregated from the travelers, they drive through the traveler's area each morning, starting at 5:00 AM. If you have a small unit and only require 30A power, this may suit you fine; for us, we'll pass if in the area again. Curiously, it is less expensive to stay day by day than the weekly rate.

This is an interesting setting; outside of town, down a narrow, twisting 8% or more grade, to sites surrounding the golf course parking lot. Sites 1 through 3 are long (we were in site 1) but highly sloped and even with a multitude of blocks, it was impossible to level the coach. Sites are adequate in space with green grass; hookups are spaced between each site so odd sites will need a long water hose. Verizon AirCard and cell phone signals were strong. Free cable TV is provided and there is ample clearance for a satellite dish. It was quiet at night, but during the day there was a fair amount of traffic, and on the weekends quite a bit. We were treated to drunken karaoke singing at blasting volume after a weekend tournament, but fortunately they tired out shortly after 9:00 PM. Be careful on the entrance road; golf carts and construction vehicles make the trip a bit sporty. It's a beautiful setting but next time we'll probably try another park if in the area.

This is an amazing park: certainly one of the top ten we've ever visited. We parked on beautiful putting-green quality grass, under huge pines, surrounded by landscaped dividers. Quiet, dark at night, only the sound of an occasional distant train to break the silence. Marginal Verizon cell phone and no AirCard reception, but the park's Wi-Fi worked well. No pool, mini-golf, or frills, just beauty in a place surrounded by mountains. The Passport America rate makes this the best bargain we've ever found. We'll make sure we stay here again.

This is an exceptional KOA in that you get your money's worth. Large sites with trees and grass, convenience to shopping, and extensive facilities, including an on-site breakfast cafe make this a worthwhile stay. Although close to the main highway, it's quiet and dark at night (once the kids get tucked in) and the landscaping maintenance is noteworthy.

This is a nice little campground in the tall pines at the South end of the Bitterroot Valley. Nothing fancy, only one 50A site but otherwise full (30A) hookups, right next to the East Fork of the Bitterrot River. No Verizon cell or AirCard service, and no TV or cable. Finding a hole in the trees for a satellite is also a challenge. There is a nice little store with an excellent cafe for breakfast or lunch Wed-Sun. This is a great spot for a nice quiet evening with the smell of woodsmoke and pines. We'll stay here again.

This is the kind of park we wish we could find in every town; friendly check-in, good sized sites with real grass, and level, gravel sites with an area for the awning and picnic table. The free Wi-Fi worked well, and Verizon cell and AirCard coverage was good. Hookups were good, especially the water which had good pressure and was very soft.

Finally, a KOA that is reasonably priced and delivers on its promises. Friendly owner, golf cart escort, and large, level gravel sites. Good hookups, shade, some grass, and free Wi-Fi that worked. Small but adequate pool and playground. Verizon Cell and Aircard worked well; satellite TV may be a problem due to the large cottonwoods. Not much in Hardin, but a good place to stage a visit to the Little Big Horn Battlefield. Plan on cooking at home, the Hardin dining possibilities are few and unsavory. The nightly campground ice cream social to raise money for charity is a nice touch. We'd stay here again.

It's hard to criticize a park that only charges $16.50 a night, and aside from the train noise, this is a good overnight stop. Level sites, trees, (some will block satellite reception), good hookups & excellent soft water were all a plus. On check-in, after driving over the railroad tracks right outside the park entrance, my wife asked about train noise and was told "we're on a siding, so it's not a problem at night". Well, the siding sounded like it ran through the site next to ours, and the train's horn was enough to rattle the windows. Verizon cell and AirCard worked well, nice since the park has no wireless. Road noise from the interstate was negligible. An OK park in an area without many options, but bring your earplugs.

This is a nice campground with enormous potential. The new owners are working to improve the infrastructure, but some areas, such as the dirt roads that turn to ruts and mud when it rains, need immediate improvement. Pull through sites are long, but with side-by-side hookups you're touching awnings with your neighbor. The water pressure is also sporadic depending on the number of people in the park. On the plus side, the park has many large trees (no cable - we had to use a portable dish to find a hole), is fairly quiet, and is convenient to town. The free WiFi was very strong and the Verizon cell and AirCard service also worked well. The owners and staff are friendly and eager to please; we're confident they'll make the necessary improvements and will stay here again if in the area.

It's hard to believe there are campgrounds with full hookups for $10 a night, but this one is not worth half that! Beware. We arrived after a tortuous trip over mud/sand/dirt construction throughout the main street of Herreid, to find a overgrown weed patch with faint traces of RV slots. We pulled in, slowed down to double check our eyes, and pulled out. Unfortunately, Herreid is a horrid little town right now, and this campground is representative of it. We won't slow down next time.

This is a family-themed park best suited for campers with children. For those without, it is overpriced. Playgrounds, a pool, and activities abound, but roads are dusty, sites are highly sloped making leveling difficult, picnic tables are old and warped, and the "free" Wi-Fi doesn't work. Freeway noise is noticeable but not a distraction. The staff runs around on golf carts at high speed creating dust everywhere - we arrived with a clean coach and two days later left with a dirty one. Verizon cell phone and air card worked well. Upon arrival, we were issued wrist bands because "security is a big problem here". We'll pass on this park next time we're in the area.

I agree with previous reviewers that this is a nice park with friendly owners. During the week, it's quiet; however, when the weekend comes, it's a noisy, bustling place with kids riding the rent-a-trikes everywhere. Heavily treed, there is no satellite use although the owner has installed dishes throughout the park that you can hook up to. Sites are good sized, but with all of the parked cars it seems crowded. It rained while we were here, and the roads quickly became muddy and we ended up with a lot of dirt spray on our coach. No Wi-Fi, but Verizon and Aircard worked well. Our stay was impacted by one of the workampers having four dogs that barked every time someone walked by. The town of Faribault doesn't have much to offer except a Super WalMart just up the road, and there is road construction everywhere. Check with the park before visiting; during our stay the main exit to town was closed. Overall, an OK place, but a bit overpriced. We'll pass on this park next time.

A large expanse of grass without tree or bush, this campground fills the basic requirement of a place to park but not much else. Big sites, but it didn't matter much over the 4th of July as the place was almost empty. Long walk to office or restrooms, although the dumpsters were convenient. Free WiFi was spotty and Verizon AirCard just barely worked. No cable, no broadcast TV, no pool, no playgrounds, just lots of grass and a place to park. Close to the Amana Colonies, interesting but expensive if you decide to shop. We were interested in seeing the area, but there isn't enough to lure us back to this bare-bones park.

This is a great Passport America member park for an overnight or longer stay. The park is convenient to the Interstate yet far enough to be fairly quiet at night. The level, gravel pull-through sites are long and wide enough for slides and awning and hookups are convenient. The park has a nice pool, small store, and walking trails through the woods.

The price reflects the weekly rate. We enjoyed our stay here; quiet, well landscaped, and very friendly owners/managers. There are a variety of sites, from tree shaded to open, all level grass/dirt with solid hookups and a picnic table. The lakes are full of small bluegill and provide a fishing experience for the kids. There's a playground, basketball court, hiking trails through the woods and rec room, along with a small laundry. Verizon Aircard worked well, but the free park WiFi was exceptionally fast and secure. The location was perfect for exploring the Amish communities, South Bend, and the lakefront communities. A very good value; we'll stay here again.

We made reservations on the state park site; the site location and information stated that the site was 50' long. On arrival (and paying an additional $7 entry fee) we drove through the park and when entering the campground loop were confronted by 180 degree turns with poles and trees close to the road, along with park cars. The site itself was heavily treed and too small for our coach; even if we could fit it would have required pulling into and backing out due to trees on each side and narrow access road. It was not level and was not wide enough to allow slideouts on both sides, let alone an awning. After a tortuous attempt and slow escape from the loop, we requested and received a refund with the comment from the park ranger that "I guess we'll have to measure those sites someday". The park itself is very extensive and beautifully maintained; however it IS NOT easily assessable for a 40' motor home and tow - I would not recommend for anything over 36'. We'll have to pass on this otherwise beautiful park.

This is a park that works best for those with a medium or smaller RV, children, and who use the restrooms. For those of us with large motorhomes and who are only passing through, it is at best an average park. A narrow, climbing road leads to a cramped registration area, and we were led to a level gravel site that was steeply terraced and nearly precluded the use of passenger side slides. The free cable TV and Wi-Fi worked well, and Verizon cell and AirCard also were strong. For an overnight stay, there are less expensive and easier to access parks in the area. We'll pass on this park if in the area again.

Wow - what a beautifully maintained park and at a Passport America rate! At arrival we were checked in by very professional staff and led to our site. The level, gravel sites have a patio area, table, and manicured grass with some shade. Sites are not huge but are large enough to extend slides and awning without feeling cramped. The free cable TV was excellent, and although the park has no Wi-Fi, Verizon cell and AirCard service was very good. The park is surrounded by hills and forest and is quiet and dark at night. Disneyland could take landscaping lessons from these people - a great stay and we'll definitely visit again.

It is not as bad as I expected based on previous reviews. The grass was mowed, and after being led on a tortuous trip with mud holes and low tree branches, we arrived at our site. It was fairly level gravel and with good hookups, the sites for motor homes and Camp Freightliner attendees are on the edge of the park near the entrance road, separated a bit from the rather seedy resident trailers. We didn't use any of the bath or other facilities and don't think our stay would have been enhanced by doing so The power was steady and kept our air conditioning running in the heat, and the noise from the residents wasn't too bad, so overall our stay here was acceptable. It's the only game in town unless you're having Freightliner service done, and then it's only an electric site at the service center. We can't imagine ever staying here again.

We agree with previous posts - this is a quality park with a reasonable cost considering facilities. The free WiFi actually worked very well, an unusual event since most parks advertise WiFi but seldom deliver. Although a great park, we were in site 8, which is next to a large security light. Along with the bright light, it buzzed loudly all night long, and was a significant irritant. Ask to stay in a site other than 7 or 8. The convenient location of this park (right off the interstate but quiet, with a Flying J next door makes it a location that we'll stay in again.

A nice campground 6 miles from the town of Somerset. Overnight sites are separate from the seasonal sites, and were quiet and dark at night. No trees or shade, old picnic table, and no Wi-Fi were detractors, but the gravel site was level and the hookups worked well. Even though out in the country, the Verizon cell and AirCard worked well. Overall a nice park that should get better as facilities are improved. We'd stay here again.

While the price was a bit high, this KOA is the only quality RV park in an area with few options. Most parks in this part of the country are 30 amp, no sewer, and crowded with seasonal campers. We opted for a back-in site for our 10 day stay, and it was fairly level, grass covered, and tree shaded (we had to use a portable satellite dish). The free WiFi was generally not usable, even though an antenna was close by. TV broadcast reception was spotty, and will probably worsen once the digital changeover is made, and there is no cable TV. The Verizon cell and air card reception was excellent. There are many activities for families on the weekend, and plenty of areas for children, including a swimming "pond". The area has many restaurants and adequate shopping, and access to I-480 and Cleveland attractions is very good. Although they're pricey for those of us without children and who don't use many of the facilities, it's the best park in the area and we'd stay here again.

The Wright-Pat FamCamp has become the park of choice due to other campgrounds and even the state parks raising their rates over $30 a night. At $110 a week, it's a bargain considering the paved roads and pads, full hookups, and access to a lake (permit required) and trails. The office could be more organized; there were many sites reserved with cones that were never filled even though people were being told to park in the overflow area. Besides the blaring loudspeakers playing reveille at 0730 each weekday morning and the long drive to get to the gate, it's still worth the price. We'd stay here again.

We enjoyed visiting this park; it's a reminder of what all of the KOA's used to be - clean, neatly manicured, nice facilities, and family oriented activities. On the other hand, the sites are small, the trees prevent use of a satellite (and there's no cable), most of the sites are 30A only, the roads are gravel and potholed, and the price is exorbitant for an overnight stay. It's a great weekend destination park for families, but at this time of year, the facilities aren't usable and there aren't any activities during the week, so a weekday overnight is overly priced. Casey is a small town with not much to offer and there's not much in the area, but the park is a nice place to just relax and enjoy the birds. This is a nice park, but due to the price we won't stay here again.

We were pleasantly surprised with this immaculate little park during our week-long stay. Level, gravel pull through sites and convenient hookups were separated by a small grass strip. Although our site in the rear of the park was not overly large, we had an end site which gave us plenty of room. The park is nicely landscaped with flowers and small trees, and although it has a number of what appear to be long-term residents, their sites are well maintained. The owners were friendly and were quick to ask how our stay was going. Located near an exit on I-55, it was very convenient to St. Louis attractions and shopping in Edwardsville. The only drawback is the drone of the interstate traffic, but it wasn't enough to keep us awake. The owners do not accept credit cards, requiring check or cash only. There aren't many parks in the area, but even if there was, this park would be worth staying at. We'll definitely stay here again.

We thoroughly enjoyed our three-day stay in this meticulously maintained park in the oak forest above Lake of the Ozark. The owners have completed significant work in improving the facility; 50amp sites are huge gravel pull-throughs with a picnic table. Although the WiFi reception was spotty from our location, the CATV was exceptionally clear, important since the heavy tree cover prevents satellite reception. The park has nature trails through the woods, a pool, game lounge, and outdoor playground. Throughout the park seasonal campers have placed bird feeders and we watched hummingbirds and bluebirds from our site. Although there are some seasonals, their sites were very well maintained. All in all, this is a perfect destination for the area; quiet, peaceful, and extremely well maintained. We'd definitely stay here again.

This is a pretty basic overnight spot with good potential. We were met by the friendly and helpful owner who escorted us to our site and explained the hookups. The sites are back-to-back, but with few sites occupied we were able to use the entire length which gave us an 80' plus pull-through. The sites are dirt with grass islands, and fairly level. There is no cable and there are trees so ask for a clear site if you intend to use your satellite dish. There is some road and train noise, but not enough to be a distraction. As previously stated, the park is convenient to town and is fairly easy to access with a big rig. Nice folks and reasonably priced; we'd stay here again.

This is an old KOA, most of which appears to be used by permanent residents. Sites for transients are just long enough for a 40' MH and tow, and are close together and facing in alternate directions. Dirt roads are tree lined, and some sites have trees that will impact slide-outs. When I mentioned to the owner/manager that a tree was very close to one of my slides, he was quick to visit the site and offered to cut the branch. The park is located in a residential area but is easy to access. The location is quiet and provides easy access to shopping and sightseeing around Wichita. We enjoyed our stay and would stay here again.

Arriving at the park on a short dirt and very dusty road, we were met by a sign which stated to find a site and someone would be through between 5:30 and 9:00 to collect the fee. It was difficult to determine how the sites were aligned from the entrance; this is nothing but a large dirt field with gravel spread on top - no pads, tables, or shade. The fee ($25, cash or check only) was high for the quality of the park. Besides the road noise, trains ran all night on tracks that are adjacent to the park, and because there's a crossing nearby the sound of horns made it difficult to sleep without earplugs. We'll pass this one by in the future.

We stayed here during the Good Sam Rally and were impressed at how organized and professional the staff was. On the day the rally ended, the park emptied and then was filled again as 70 RVs arrived from the Balloon Festival grounds. We watched as each RV was led to their space and had the hookups explained to the driver. Other aspects of the park have been described at length in other reviews; suffice to say that the park was up to its usual high standards and that we had an enjoyable stay.

This park has many attributes; good location, large, level sites with shelter and table, and access to a large casino and several fishing lakes. The free WiFi did not work well; however, Verizon service and Aircard were strong. The office staff was friendly and we appreciated the helpful security staff and the 24-hour gate at the entry. The drawback is the noise from trains. The park is adjacent to the stop for the Rail Runner express, which starts at 5:03 AM and runs every hour until after 8:00 PM. During the night, freight and Amtrak trains are frequent. All use their horns continually, and the noise is loud and obtrusive. Earplugs are mandatory for this to be a quality stay. We probably won't stay here again.

Not many frills, but it is a decent value for the price. Sites were well spaced and level in the large gravel parking lot. Hookups were OK, except that my 50A plug was only receiving 30A. There are lots of quail and singing blackbirds in the evening. Besides Bosque Del Apache, it's a nice trip (50 Miles) to the Very Large Array, which is worth the trip. Socorro, 10 miles away, has a small Super Wal-Mart and a very good brewery restaurant (Socorro Springs). As stated before, the owner is friendly and aside from the occasional train, it's a quiet stay. We'd stay here again.

This park has quickly become the class park of Alamogordo; spacious, well-laid out sites are separated by a rail fence, the facilities are immaculate, and the owners go out of their way to ensure a great stay. No trees or tables yet, and the water is really hard; but these are offset by the easy access to local attractions and the family atmosphere. Besides White Sands NM, the Sacramento Mountains offer an observatory tour, large Indian Casino, shopping, and wildlife viewing. Three Rivers Petroglyph site, Valley of the Fires, and Lincoln Historic Site are all great spots to visit from the park. Free admission to musical events and the pot luck dinners where we made new friends were highlights of our visit. This is an exceptional park with likewise exceptional owners; we'll visit again and wish them the best of luck.

Price reflects a weekly rate and use of the Texas Park Pass for daily entry. This is one of Texas' best state parks - large sites with picnic pavilions and fire rings, full hookups with cable TV, and a great scenic drive. No Verizon cell phone or air card reception in the park; however, the Indian lodge (which has a fair restaurant) has free WiFi. This is a great destination park and also a good place from which to visit McDonald Observatory, Fort Davis National Historic Site, and the "Marfa Mystery Lights". Fort Davis has a fair variety of restaurants, one grocery store, and two gas stations; all are pricey so stock up before arrival. Our stay was detracted from by being told at 4:30 on our second day that we would have to move to another area before 9:00 AM the next day due to cable TV work; and that we had to report to the office before 5:00 to receive another site. The ranger giving the notice was not particularly helpful or professional. Other than that, this is a quality park and worth the trip. We'd stay here again.

Let's face it - if you want to visit Big Bend with a full hookup site with services Marathon is the only choice; so it's a good thing this park is very nice. We were given the last space available, which was apparently a former workamper site - no pad, picnic table, and only gravel/dirt which was not very level. The standard 50A sites were pull-through, also dirt/gravel without pads. The free cable TV and WiFi worked well. There is a beautifully landscaped courtyard and fireplace and the owners are exceptionally friendly. Marathon is an interesting little town; good restaurants (try the Famous Burro), and the Gage Hotel is worth a visit. We'd stay here again.

We spent a week at this interesting and unexpectedly friendly park. The RV park is located on a portion of a WWII Army post which was purchased by a private company and turned into a resort and housing area. The park manager was very friendly and stopped by frequently just to check that everything was OK. The sites are fairly wide and level, some asphalt, some grass, and hookups are convenient. The cable TV is limited, but adequate since there is no broadcast TV available. The free Wi-Fi was spotty in the RV area but worked well closer to the office. This is a park with many amenities, albeit not fancy. A small laundry is inexpensive, and there is a game room/library, golf course, spring-fed swimming pool, and museum. This is largely community of snowbirds who have been coming here for years, but they welcome visitors and encourage attendance at the almost daily activities. Deer and wild turkey roam the park, there are walking trails along a wooded creek, and birds are everywhere. Brackettville doesn't have much to offer, but all services are available 30 miles away in Del Rio. This is a great place to stop and rest; we'd stay here again.

We enjoyed our stay at this pleasant waterfront park. The park has reopened after a lengthy closing and the owners and staff are going out of their way to make visitors comfortable. They hosted a free fish fry on Friday which was very enjoyable, and always checked to see that we were enjoying our stay. Sites are large and have a view of the bay with the harbor behind. Many sites allow motorhomes to pull in nose-first for an unobstructed view of the water. Some noise is generated by the shrimp fleet (Texas' largest), but it was quiet at night. They owners are still working to improve the park, and picnic tables and pads are future items. The free WiFi worked very well. Palacios is a small town with a few restaurants, but Bay City and Port Lavaca are each 30 miles away and have Wal-Mart Supercenters and other amenities. This is a good park to stage from for visits to Brazoria, San Bernard, and Aransas National Wildlife Refuges, and overall, the area is a great birding mecca. Although this park still needs some work, the owners and staff make the stay worthwhile. We'd definitely stay here again.

This in another quality Texas State Park with a lot to offer. Two areas comprise the park; the water sites, located on the bay, and Wooded, which are carved out of the heavy woods. We passed on the water sites; a bit cramped, not very level, smelled bad (they're right next to "stinky beach") but have nice views of the bay. The wooded sites were very private, with a small entrance that was a challenge getting a 40' MH into, but opened inside into a large area with fire pit, BBQ, and pad with picnic table. The facilities are extensive, with hiking and nature trails, boat launch and fish cleaning stations, and a large fishing pier. Guided bird tours and photo classes are offered, and the staff is very friendly. This is an excellent park for both the retired community and families. The only improvement would be addition of sewer hookups. We'd stay here again.

This was our second stay after visiting briefly last year. The rate reflects the monthly rate of $375, which is an increase from last year and is not justified by the park services. A nice park, with large live oak and spacious sites, fairly quiet, and friendly park hosts. Each site has a concrete pad and picnic table, fire ring, and lantern post. The river is stocked with 6" trout and fishing in the park is free, with loaner rods and reels at the office. The free WiFi was not usable during the entire month. Water pressure is very high, and the water is very hard. The town of Blanco has a few restaurants (try the bowling alley pie), and a supermarket is located a mile south of town. A very nice stay, but there are less expensive monthly rates with better services elsewhere. We'd stay short term here again.

This is what a state park should be; tree covered, quiet, nice pads, and plenty of hiking trails. Sites are large and have a pad with picnic table, a fire pit, and separate barbecue. Electric and water only at the sites with a dump station, no cable or WiFi; just the noise from crows and other birds. You'll need a portable dish for satellite TV and 50' of coax to find a hole in the trees. About six miles off I-10 and 12 miles from the nearest town (Gonzales) with a small Wal-Mart and a few restaurants. There is fishing in a small lake and the San Marcos river. We'll stay here again.

We were pleasantly surprised by this park; low monthly rate ($295) included electric, the sites were very large, and the area is quiet during the winter months. Hookups are unique; each site is three lanes wide with hookups at each side. This allowed us to pull in nose-first with a great view overlooking the cypress-lined Guadalupe River. Sites have a large cement patio, picnic table, and barbecue on a stand. The area is generally quiet except for motorcycles on the adjacent River Road, and was only a bit crowded once the state began stocking trout every Friday in December. The staff was very friendly, there is a small store, and WiFi (weak & spotty) is free. The Verizon Air Card worked very well. Just a short (3 miles) from New Braunfels which has all amenities. No pets, glass, or Styrofoam allowed along the river, but during the winter small pets are allowed in the RV area. This is a huge "toobing" area during the summer and is crowded and noisy. We enjoyed our stay and will return next winter.

Rate reflects a monthly rate plus electricity. This is a return visit to this park due to it's proximity to our annual medical visits and easy access to San Antonio and Austin locations. We like this park, the sites are large and level, power and water are good (although water is very hard), the free WiFi works well, and the owner is friendly and very helpful. Unfortunately, the noise from the nearby Interstate, cement plant crane alarms, and trains day and night detract from an otherwise pleasant stay. A good weekend stay, but we probably won't stay here long-term again.

What a pleasant surprise - apparently shedding the manacles of KOA has given the owners an opportunity to improve the park. Sites were long, wide and level (gravel), trees provided shade, and hookups were convenient. The free Wi-Fi worked well until the morning when it disappeared. A real treat was the on-site cafe which served a home-made meal each night - the country ribs were great! A very nice park; we'd stay here again.

A nice, above average park with shade and fairly level sites. The sites are slightly terraced, gravel, roomy. Water pressure is very high, power good, and the free Wi-Fi worked very well. Some road noise of trucks on the upgrade into town, and large, bright lights can be a problem at night if you're under one. There are a large number of parks in the area, this is one of the better ones. We'd stay here again.

This is our favorite park when visiting the Albuquerque area; professionally run, nicely landscaped, and fairly priced. We took advantage of the stay four nights/get one free which makes the stay very reasonable. Free Wi-Fi worked well, good cable, and the free "continental" breakfast are great touches. Road noise is noticeable at night but not too bad if running the air or fan and being close to I-40 allows easy access to town. A great park, we'll stay here again.

Planned to stay here based on previous reviews. Called enroute, no answer so left message. Two hours later had not received a reply so called again. Spoke to someone and told them we'd need a pull-thru space for a 40' MH; was told no problem no reservation needed. When we arrived, we were met by Pop (we assume) and saw that there were only a few sites for big rigs, and all were full. Also only a few pull-thrus, also full. He advised us to go elsewhere (Lee Acres). Had we been advised, we would have gone elsewhere without wasting our time stopping here. If you have a 40' MH or larger, check in advance. We'll pass on this park in the future.

I'm afraid I'm not as enamored with this park as others; perhaps because the park is not particularly big-rig friendly. After waiting in line for 30 minutes while two inconsiderate motorhomers disconnected their tows (yes, while in line and after checking in), we pulled into our site, which was downhill and tight because of trees and untrimmed branches. It was necessary to disconnect the tow, then back up to the rear of the site to get fairly level and avoid trees for the slide outs. Hookups were OK, but no satellite due to trees. It's the only hookup location in the area, but even then $52 a night is too steep for what your get. We'll try somewhere else if we return to the area.

After a steep climb to the check-in, we were met by a friendly staff and led to our site. The sites are close together but adequate; with slides out there was no room for awning, but we're not here to stay in the campground. Good power, OK cable, and good free Wi-Fi.

Although we seldom stay at KOAs as fulltimers, this park rates high on our list of places to stay. Right in Missoula and close to shopping, the park has easy access, big rig sites, and shade and green grass. Lots of activities for the family. Cable and WiFi were free and worked well. A huge staff of yellow-shirted workampers were everywhere, and the landscaping and condition of the park showed. Would be a 10 if it had paved pads; we were there during the rain and it was a bit muddy. We'd stay here again.

A magical place; descending the 10% grade into the canyon is a bit daunting, but worth the trip. The campgrounds are all well kept with large spaces and beautiful views of the rock formations and incredible colors. Sewer hookups would be nice, but there are multiple dump sites throughout the park. We stayed in Mesquite campground, 8 miles from the entrance; quiet, dark, and isolated. Wild turkey roam the campgrounds like domestic chickens - bring birdseed. Deer and desert sheep are also easily seen. A great visitor center and not-too-bad snack grill. Make sure you stop and see the two giant longhorns near the entrance. A great stay - another superior Texas state park. We'll be back.

This is beautiful state park on the river on the south end of Blanco. The full hookup sites are arranged in a large loop with lots of huge live oak trees but with a center clearing for satellite dishes. Power, water, and sewer are available in the loop and in some of other sites. Beautifully landscaped with fire rings, volleyball court, and no-license required fishing. Quiet, with lots of birds and very little traffic noise. The park staff was very friendly. Nearby is the LBJ home and ranch, and shopping and restaurants are all within an easy drive.

We spent over a month here due to the park's convenient location; 45 miles to San Antonio, 35 to Austin. Adjacent to I-35, so there is road noise but not too bad. The cement plant trucks mentioned in other posts didn't bother us. Gravel and cement sites, level with cement pad & picnic tables. Clean laundromat and restrooms, good power and water; make sure you have a pressure regulator. Free Cable TV and WiFi; WiFi is very good throughout the park. Camping World and Wal-Mart close by.

We've always enjoyed staying here; however, at $40 a night at the discount rate I'm not sure it's worth it. A great place, with free WiFi and continental breakfast, but also with a great deal of I-10 road noise and sites without picnic tables or shade. By the handout included with your receipt, it looks like they're trying to lease sites and become more of a snowbird destination. Next time we're in the area we'll probably go elsewhere for an overnight stay.

This is an unusual review in that we never stayed at the park. Planning on staying in the area, we reviewed the park on this web site and called about the monthly rate. We were e-mailed an "application" form to fill out before we could be put on a "waiting list". OK so far. Then I started reviewing the application. Besides names, DOBs, and driver's license numbers, the application required my social security number. That was warning enough, but later on the form it asked if our RV had a lien and the name and address of the lien holder. All we wanted to do was stay for a month, not buy the place. In over 35 years of Rving and over two years of full timing we've never experienced this type requirement. Since we, like most everyone, pay for the entire stay with a credit card at check in, it makes us believe that either: 1) someone at the park is trying to get our personal data for fraudulent use; 2) the owners are using this as a mechanism to discriminate age/race/financial status; or 3) they're incredibly anal about controlling who visits and how they conduct themselves. In any case, this may be a fine place if you're staying less than a month, apparently you're OK then, but we'll pass. We didn't stay here.

Located on the far southeastern edge of Tucson but with easy access to major roads, this is an OK park for a stopover or short stay. Lots of potential; large, gravel sites, good hookups, some shade, but the large number of long term/permanent residents with work trucks and outside storage detracts from the appearance. Free cable TV was poor. A personal gripe is that we try to stay at parks advertising wireless since we have a small business; this is another park where WiFi is advertised but doesn't work well if at all, and the management is indifferent (Oh, it never works when it is windy. Gosh, I guess it's windy here a lot). I'd rather pay for a vendor-provided service that works than a free system that doesn't. A large number of dogs in the park, some of which are tied and left during the day while their owners are off to work create noise. Don't think we'll stay here again.

This is a tired little campground located in trees right between I-5 and railroad tracks. Nice lady at the office, level sites and good hookups; however, the noise, sandy soil that stuck to your shoes, and old campers made this a place we would not return. Bad enough that it's located within 100 yards of I-5, that part of the highway is on a hill so you're treated to exhaust brakes, too. But then the trains drowned out the trucks every once in a while. We did get to pick some of the apples growing wild in the park (with permission), but it was still way to expensive for what they offer.

It's hard to imagine a better state park - paved interior roads and sites, wide spaces separated by trees and hedges, super clean facilities, security, and even cable TV and WiFi. This is the way a park should be run. Beautiful ocean views, trails through the woods, and a wonderful playground for the kids. Daily programs for the kids and evening programs for the adults. The staff is friendly and the place bustles with employees and volunteers as they clean sites, trim bushes, etc. Get here early, it fills up fast almost every day. It is only one mile from town and shopping. We'd love to stay here again.

This is a small park adjacent to Hwy 101 and just north of Old Town Brandon. Paved interior roads with level gravel sites. Pull-thrus are very close together, enough room for slide-outs but not for an awning. Good power and water hook-ups with free cable (97 channels) and very strong free WiFi. The office staff was very friendly and helped park our rig. Anything over 40' with a tow might have a bit of trouble in this small park, but it's OK for an overnight stay. Not a park for families with children. We'd stay here again; the rate reflects a 15% Escapees discount.

Great location, easy access, paved everywhere except for landscaping strips between sites; this park provides a quality stay. Free cable TV, WiFi, and shuttle service. Not a great place to sit outside outside your rig, (no trees and parking lot ambiance), but there's a lot to see and do in the area. We'd stay here again.

A good place for an overnight stay; paved, level sites are large and the pull thrus will accommodate any size rig with the tow vehicle attached. Large trees throughout the park; free cable and WiFi were very good. The indoor pool and spa are impressive; good thing they're indoors since the wind howls here. The office staff was very friendly and helpful. Local roads to the park were rough and there isn't much to see in the area. As a bonus, a local lady had placed fresh produce in the game room on a "donation" basis. We'd stay here again.

This is a very nice, newer park on the banks of the Clearwater river. The owner and staff were very friendly and went out of their way to make our stay pleasant. The entry road crosses railroad tracks and is paved once you enter the park. Most sites are back-in, and are large, level gravel backing up to the river bank. The pull thrus are parallel to the road and I'd take a back in instead. Cable is available for $1 a day but there is a clear view of both DirecTV and Dish satellites. The free WiFi worked well. The only drawback, and a minor one, is the railroad siding behind the park. Although not very scenic, the siding is seldom used and was only a visual drawback. We enjoyed our stay and will return.

In two years of full timing and 67 different campgrounds, this is absolutely the best stay we've every had. Forget the big-company parking lots, this park has only 8 sites right on the bank of the Salmon River, and if you have enough electric cord and hose, you can pull straight in like we did. The view from the windshield is like a postcard; all river, trees, and mountains, without a structure or person in sight. The sound of the river along with the sight of Great Blue Heron, Osprey, and even an American Avocet make sitting outside an experience not to be missed. No restrooms, pool, mini-golf, or other facilities, just beautiful grassy sites and wonderfully friendly owners. Since there's no cell phone coverage, they provide free long distance phone calls from the lodge office. We're the only RV here; there's not much traffic on US 93 this time of year, but we understand that in the spring and fall fisherman and hunters keep the lodge and park filled. We'd travel out of our way to stay here again.

This is a very nicely maintained mom-and-pop type park with level gravel sites, trees, and grass. The view of the mountains is very nice and it's in a quiet location and very dark at night. The free WiFi was very strong throughout our stay. The owners are friendly and very helpful. They also run a small cafe with a free breakfast for RVrs - but try the sweet potato pancakes; they're only $2.95 and well worth it. Sitting in the cafe is like being with old friends, everyone is very friendly - ask about all of the dollar bills glued to the ceiling. This is the way all campgrounds should be run. We'd stay here again.

Nicely shaded, fair-sized sites, and lots of large trees. Off the interstate and except for the airport noise, very quiet. Side-by-side hookups were OK, and the free WiFi was very strong. A busy place as it is a popular stopping place judging by all the rigs that came in and left the next day. Very well stocked store and professional staff. We enjoyed walking the trail along the river in back of the park. Some of the permanent residents need to be moved out or cleaned up; but these were generally located in the area not used for overnighters. We'd stay here again.

This is a Passport America park and is a good value for the price. Off the highway & quiet, you have to drive on dirt roads through a stable area to get to the RV area. All dirt road/sites, fairly level with a grass island. Good 50A power was a plus since it was 102 degrees. Sites are a tad short for a 40' and tow but the egress is all in the same direction so it doesn't pose much of a problem. Some permanent campers but is was quiet and the lady in the office was very friendly and helpful. A good, inexpensive place to spend the night or base your visit to the Moab area. Nothing to do for kids - too hot outside, anyway. We'd stop here again.

Located behind the Ute Mountain Casino, the RV park has easy access, level gravel sites, and full hookups. The cable TV was exceptional; over 100 channels with almost all of the premium channels included. The free WiFi was down for one day but worked well the next. Some shade provided by small trees and a grassy island between sites was nice; the sites are well spaced and we had plenty of room for slides and awning. The office staff was friendly and helpful. Although 11 miles from Cortez, this parks provides solid hookups and a secure environment. The casino restaurant was reasonable and had very good food. We'd stay here again.

We spent a week here and were somewhat disappointed with the quality of the "resort". The web site greatly misrepresents the park; while it shows riverfront sites with patios, there are only four in the park; and the patios are very worn. All of the other sites are close to each other with either dead grass or weeds that were not mowed during our visit. We paid for a "waterfront premium site" which apparently means that you're within 100 yards of walking to the river. The park is very popular and was crowded during our visit; but was quiet at night, even during the Fourth of July. A good location if you're visiting the area and riding the Cumbres/Toltec Railroad; but don't expect solitude, this is a very popular vacation spot and if you visit during the summer you'll need reservations. We would try another of the local parks if we visit this area again.

We spent a week here and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Check in by a very professional staff was quick and we were escorted to our paved, level site which had a patio and picnic table. We had an end site, with large shade trees and landscaped grass, and the hookups were conveniently located. Cable TV was being installed while we were there, and the free WiFi generally worked well. On two occasions when it failed, a call to the office resulted in it being restored within 30 minutes. The free continental breakfast is a nice touch, just don't expect more than cereal, bagels, and frozen waffles. The gift shop is unusually well stocked; whoever does the buying has great taste. Overall, this is a very well run operation that provides a great stay for a moderate price. We'll stay here again.

We spent a month here and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. As full timers, we spend a lot of time at RV parks, and this one is special. Large, long gravel pads and patio areas are surrounded by rustic fencing and provide privacy. 50A power is very strong (important since it gets hot here during the day) and the water quality is very good. Free Wi-Fi worked well and the office was quick to reset it the one time it failed. The park is located only about three miles from a quaint downtown and just a mile from a Wal-Mart Supercenter. The laudromat is spotless as is the office. Really nice folks in the office; very helpful and friendly. No pool or playground, but that's the way we like it; in our entire month there was no noise, rowdiness, or children cutting through our site. A great place to stay and explore the cliff dwellings, ghost towns, and Gila Wilderness. We'll be back.

A positive exception to the cookie-cutter campground. Huge sites on the high desert with great views of the Chiricahuas. Very friendly staff, nice office and very clean laundry. Free and very strong WiFi. Two ponds with ducks and fish provide relief to the desert environment, but be aware this is windy country. A great place to base for visits to Cave Creek Canyon and some of the country's best birding. Make sure you're stocked up on groceries, because it's a looooong way to any town of size. We'll stay here again.

A nice park located about 7 miles from the interstate; a co-op where you rent a vacant owner's site. All back-in sites, poor water quality (a Yuma given), and no use of washer/dryer, but still a nice place and very quiet. Electricity is metered and charged to you on departure. Since we were leaving on the morning of Easter Sunday and the office would be closed, I volunteered to read the meter myself and leave a check at the drop box, but they refused, and instead read my meter at 4:00 PM the day before departure. When I went to the office to pay, I was told by a rather rude woman that my charge would be for the metered amount, and that amount would be divided by the three days we stayed, and then a full day's rate added. I pointed out that it was already 4:30 in the afternoon and that I would be leaving at 7:00 AM the next morning, but she insisted that we were moving into the "hottest part of the day, and the charge was valid." (This is Arizona, where there is no daylight savings time and it gets dark at 6 PM.) Rather than argue, I paid the charge which brought the cost per night to $22, no bargain for an Escapees member. Frankly, the Escapees experience has always been very positive to us until this park. We won't stay here again.

After reading previous reviews, I asked for a back in since we would be staying for a week but was assured by the office clerk that we'd be "happier" with a pull through. Unfortunately, I accepted her judgement. Driving to the back of the park, it became apparent that the pull throughs were nothing more than closely-spaced parking lot spaces. Dirt, narrow, without shade, table, pad, or any amenity. An I mean narrow - with the slide out my neighbor's slide made it impossible to put out the window awnings. What was particularly annoying was the practice of putting everyone together even though there were plenty of open spaces. Last night there were a dozen RVs crammed in next to one another while there were another 20 sites open with not one RV. We found the office clerk to be patronizing and not very helpful. About the only positive feature was strong and free WiFi and decent cable TV. We weren't impressed and will not stay here again.

This park is certainly the class of Alpine. Very well kept, friendly staff, and good power and water. Good level gravel sites, a few trees for shade. Cable is free but only gets 12 channels. Free WiFi, but it's very spotty. We were here during cold weather, but it looks like the new pool area is very nice. Convenient to lots of neat areas; Big Bend, Ft Davis, and the Marfa Mystery Lights. We were visited by a large buck and his harem each morning. Great views of the mountains. We spent a week and will stay here again.

This is a very nice, very well maintained RV park. Convenient to I-10, fairly quiet, and well laid out with level concrete pads and good hookups. Strong free WiFi and a free continental breakfast added to the positive experience. Only drawbacks were the bright lights lighting the park at night and the large number of children due to an adjacent baseball academy. We'd stay here again.

Very well run and organized RV park. Concrete pads with river views, good hookups, and a friendly staff make this a premier location. Convenient to Natchez with a shuttle to the river casino. Staff was very helpful and a computer with internet service is available in the office. Poor TV and no WiFi keep this park from getting a higher rating. A very pleasant place to stay, we'd stay here again.

A pretty much ho-hum park, gravel and grass sites, some level, most not. Small trees dot the landscape, not much else to comment on. Staff was also pretty ho-hum. WiFi available for a fee. Hard to figure out which is the road to the park and which is the truck stop entry. Too pricy for overnight stops, won't stay here again.

A pricy park that probably is worth it for an extended stay at a weekly rate but is overpriced for one or two nights. Interior roads are paved but sites are grass and were muddy after recent rains. The first site we were given was too uneven to level the motorhome and we had to request another. Free WiFi was nice and a discount for cash was offered. I'd probably look for another place for an overnight stay.

This is a delightful little park with lots of shade in a quiet area. The sites for motorhomes are up on a terrace and although a slow climb through the trees to get there, are large enough for big rigs. Mostly populated by summer lease campers, the owner is a delightful lady who runs the place by herself and is a treat to talk to. Nearby shopping includes a WalMart SuperCenter and there are restaurants nearby. A neat, secluded place to stay; we'd stay again.

If you've ever wondered what a FEMA disaster relief trailer camp looked like, visit this park (although I think FEMA would be more organized). A huge area of ramshackle trailers, with add-on sheds, beer sports team signs, plastic palm trees. You get the picture. We were greeted by a rude individual in a cigarette smoky office and it went downhill from there. There are no sewer hookups, but the dump station is easily located by even a poor sense of smell. Make sure you wear gloves and a hazmat suit if you have one. Even with two whole-house filters, the water looked like iced tea and was undrinkable. The only positives were that the 30A power didn't fail and that we were able to leave early, even without a refund. This place makes a Flying J parking lot look sophisticated.

We returned here after being gone a year and were impressed by the improvement. New owners again, but this time they cleaned out all of the old run down trailers and moved out all of the permanent people. New office, new attitude. Very nice place; still could use more gravel as sites were muddy, but the owners are working hard to improve the place. We'd stay here again.

Arrived in a rainstorm and half of the sites were flooded; none with 50A were available, so had to settle for 30A (no price break, of course). Can't blame them for the rain but they could work on their drainage, the whole site was flooded with two or more inches of water. WiFi was free but very weak. Cable was free and had multiple channels. Shady sites and friendly staff, but over priced for a one night stay. Very noisy as the interstate is right next to the park.

An older, somewhat worn out looking park. Gravel sites were level and access was OK. Free WiFi worked very well; however, cable is available only in select sites and trees block most roof-mounted satellite dishes. A path through the weeds and over the railroad tracks led to the famous Wall Drug Store, so disconnecting the tow vehicle isn't necessary to shop and find something to eat. Wall Drug was interesting but I wouldn't stop again.

As previously noted, the road to the park is horrible; rough washboard and dusty. The sites are tiered too sharply and our slideout with the attached storage bays almost touched the ground. We could not get level without the curb side wheels being lifted off of the ground, and just walking up and down the hill trying to accomplish hookups and chores will wear you out. There is no WiFi. It is remote and quiet and the view at sunset was very pretty. I'd look hard for another park in the area if I was staying more than a day.
