This is a great overnight park while passing through. It does have four washers and dryers and the laundry looks clean with good lighting. There is not a lot to do here; however, for someone passing through or wanting to visit the Knoxville area this park would be ideal. The site was level and the park was clean. There was plenty of room between rigs (we have a 35 foot motorhome with two slides). This is a better park for the money than another park in the area which we had used the past three years.
My impression is that the owner of this park is trying to do too much. She not only checked me in but was cooking take out chicken dinners at the same time she was handling cash. I'd think twice about eating the food also since I didn't see her wash her hands after handling my money and then moving over to the food. The reason for my impression of their trying to do too much is we made a reservation at 1:30 PM the day of our stay for a site and were promised one. Upon arrival the owner realized that our site had been given away and offered us a spot out in the grass behind where farm machinery is stored. It did have electricity which in 90 degree heat in ND made things tolerable. The park has no litter however it is not especially tidy either. The swing set is a little rough and near the road in front of the campground. I would be afraid to leave my children alone on it. While the other guests seem nice enough they also seemed to be just as rough around the edges as their units. I didn't feel unsafe however. The sites (other then the grass ones where I was located) are gravel and all the interior roads are very dusty dirt. What gravel that was there is long gone. The park has the potential to be quite nice, however right now it's being ridden hard. We paid $20 for our site which is okay but no deal. If we had arrived earlier in the day we probably would have moved on. My guess is there are other parks that are as good or better for the money.
There are but a few things I can add that haven't already been said. First the good news...the pool is open and functional and best yet appears to be getting serviced. My rate is $0 due to being a member of 1000 Trails. Now for the bad. As in most areas of Kentucky the Lone Star Tick is plentiful and hungry. There are a number of areas in the campground that are not being mowed frequently. One of the camp hosts noted earlier in the week when we arrived that our area had not been mowed and acted as though he were going to take care of it. I've yet to see a mower being used other then the front lawn in the six days we've been here. The weeds are up over my knee in our site. I'm now covered with at least a dozen ugly looking welts caused by these voracious critters. It's currently 1:25 AM and because I can't sleep you are hopefully getting the benefit of my experience. My recommendation is to stay away from this campground until they learn how to start their mowers and get all the grass cut on a regular basis. The way they take care of their lawn is unfortunately in many ways indicative of the condition of the campground. It's easy to see how this was once quite a nice destination and could have been called a resort. Now I'd be hard pressed to recommend it as a campground.
We have used this park a couple times while traveling. It is a good stop over point and a pleasant evening. The number of pull throughs make it very convenient. Most sites will need some help from you to level your rig, however. While there have been numerous posts detailing mistreatment by the camp staff, I've yet to experience anything but a friendly office manager. There is a waste management facility next door which will help you wake up in the morning which is fine if you want to get rolling, but probably not so fine if you're looking to sleep in.
We spent two weeks here. I was amazed how quiet this park was. While near all the attractions, it sits way back in from the busy traffic. This large facility has turned out to be one of our favorite parks. It's really difficult to give a single reason why this place has become a favorite of ours. However, we look forward to returning in the future to enjoy all it has to offer.
This is a very well kept urban RV Park. Aside from two very important points that need to be emphasized, most of what has already been written is still true today concerning the rest of the parks offerings. If you should find when making your reservation that you will be in over flow, you might want to reconsider staying here. These spots are not much more then 15 feet from the edge of very busy SR 41, the Tamiami Trail. In addition you are not more then 50 yards from an active rail line that feeds coal to the Tampa Power Plant. And yes it runs throughout the night. In fairness when walking farther into the park it is significantly less noisy. Just don't expect not to hear these things even from the back of the park. The other issue is the effluent treatment facility in the front north side of the park. It can and has given off odors while we were here. There are also numerous signs throughout the front of the park saying that it is a effluent disposal sight. While I'm probably one of the last people you would ever call a tree hugger, I'd want to find out more before I'd feel comfortable staying here for longer periods of time. The overall facilities are otherwise wonderful and the staff and campers are all welcoming. This is one of the nicer urban parks I've stayed at. I'd have liked to stay farther back in the park to get a better feel for the overall noise level in the park. As full as this park is, however, I bet would be a rare occurrence.
This little park has a lot going for it. It is a mature park and has a number of larger trees which give shade from the hot Nebraska sun. It has good curb appeal and was clean with mostly newer motorhomes and trailers. There are plenty of spots to get a view of the satellite if that's how you are getting your TV. We got six channels off the antenna. The WI-FI is one of the best I've experienced on the road. If you've traveled much, you know how helpful that can be. They do have pizza made to order which was all right along with a few other goodies. While the park appears narrow it actually has quite a bit of yard to take an evening stroll to walk the dog or just walk the kinks out. There is a nice pond where you can rent paddle boats and a small area roped off that does have a beach, although it hasn't been groomed lately. I have an excellent view of the pond from my sight and while not on the waterfront is plenty close enough to enjoy it. While there is a swing set available, it may not fit your impression of what a family RV park should be. My feeling is a family can have a great weekend here. What you won't find are all the extensive playground equipment, pool, hot tub, game room, etc. that you pay extra for at other parks. This park recognizes Passport America and is a good value for the full hookup cost of $17.50 per night we paid. If your a PA Member you know how the parks can vary widely in condition. As a PA park I'd rate it a "10". Especially considering it's location just off I-80 and relatively close proximity to Grand Island. There are no other PA Parks nearby. The owners exemplify the Mom and Pop business. Although new this year to ownership of the park, they were well organized and pleasant to talk to. This has been an easy park to recommend and it's location makes it an ideal stop. We spent two nights here so we could take in the Nebraska State Fair on our return trip home from Yellowstone.
What a find. This park is one of the few choices in a Passport America Park in this area of Iowa. It is well cared for and and pleasant to stay in. We had planned only an overnight and changed our mind once we rolled in and immediately popped for two nights with the thought we may stay an additional night to get us through the weekend before moving on. The internet works fine and there is a lot of room between units and to maneuver with the motorhome. Easy drive into and out of the campground also from I-80.
We regularly stay here when attending shows at the Lucas Oil Stadium. It is an easy drive to the stadium and is a pleasant urban RV park that while not cheap is certainly not expensive in relation to most parks near major destinations. Consider that the park is fairly pleasant visually in addition to amenities like cable TV, and very usable wireless internet and this place is a winner. I would never have a problem recommending this park as a place to stay in Indianapolis.
A nice park that is quite close to the attractions in the area. You want to avoid a front lot as it can be quite loud with the I-4 traffic. With our Passport America rate it was generally a fair price however the electrical surcharge made it a little less so. We would most definitely use it again when we are in the area.
This park is a little rough around the edges. However, it is a real value during the snowbird season with our Passport America discount. There are quite a few older permanent units with about half of them looking pretty rough. The people in the park, however, were as welcoming and pleasant as could be, and I felt generally comfortable here. The manager was easy to work with and accommodating. It is an older park, however, it was clean and quiet being at the end of the road. Don't look for extras at this park. However, it did have a clean and well kept laundry facility with two washers and two dryers, so don't expect to do all your laundry at one time. WI-FI like at many parks was only available when next to the office.
We actually enjoyed this park; however, the owner is protective of his property. There are less then forty spaces in this tight urban park, and he does keep an eye on everyone and everything that goes on. Although he has a limitation on dog size, he did allow our border collie to stay. I'm glad she is well trained and was able to wait until we were outside the park as we were told to make sure of when she "did her thing." It was this monitoring that made it uncomfortable. My wife told me he must have passed by the laundromat three different times while our clothes went through the washers. I took over for the drying and didn't see him at all. All this being said the park is in great condition and looks classic Florida with the white wrought iron fence surrounding it. It is relatively near the police and fire departments so there is the sirens that you occasionally hear; however, I wouldn't say it's a lot more then most other urban parks. The area surrounding it, while urban, is well kept, and I never felt afraid while here. A well kept magnet school for the public school system is next door; however, other than recess I didn't hear the kids nor did I see them at all. This is strictly an older adult park. For us it was a good value that permitted us to explore the Keys and watch the annual Rodeo that is held next to the YMCA.
A nice park that has a unique semi circular set of roads at the front of the park that make for easy in and out pulling through. The middle has some scenic overlooks to a small lake while the back is set into the pine woods. Free wireless internet and cable television made for a happy evening in a pretty setting. We paid the Passport America Rate.
We stayed one very cold night on our way south. The rest of the park and it's village were all closed; however, we just wanted somewhere to plug in and sleep. It was clean, neat, and well kept. Access is easy both in the park and from the road. Determining where check in was and all was not well marked; however, it was easy enough to find our way around after a phone call to their office. We used our Passport America membership to get our overnight rate.
This camp has to be the friendliest we've ever stayed at. I lost track of the number of northerners wintering over at the park that came up to welcome us and offer any help needed even though we were only planning to stay for the evening. These residents are very proud of their park. It is very quiet and set in a rural area. The park is directly next to a large cow pasture which adds to the bucolic setting. Access to the park is through a coded gate which gives you a feeling of security. This was a good move as some of the homes and trailers leading up to the park look a little rough. Signage for the park showing the way in could also use some help. Much is being done to add and improve the park. A large new area surrounding a nicely landscaped lake is a few months from being ready. A new pool is being put into service and a large concrete patio has been added to the main gathering building. A family would also enjoy this park as it has enough playground equipment to keep the kids happy for awhile. There is also probably one of the best fenced in dog runs that I've ever seen available. While not the fanciest or sheik of the places we've stayed, it felt the most comfortable. For those who appreciate rural settings this one is worth a look.
For the money this park was a good three day stay for us using our Passport America membership. The park had a comfortable feeling for the 55 and above set. I do not recommend the pay wireless that is available as they have it configured to slow down access the more you use it. The WI-FI is probably the single biggest negative to an otherwise pretty nice park.
This is a 55 plus camp and consists mainly of undeveloped sites that do have full hookups. The park is cut up by private land and an area of RVs that a different business man owns. I made the mistake of turning around in his open lot and was tracked down by him to see what I was up to (getting our laundry detergent). We enjoyed our stay at the park otherwise considering the $18 per night we paid with our Passport America membership.
Sites have seen little attention in years. Water and electrical connections are not secured causing the water line to crack and the electrical connection to move inside the box when attempting to plug in. Sites are a mix of remaining pieces of concrete slabs, dirt, and a little shell fill. The manager did say he planned to add more ,however, this park has been rode hard, and is probably a shadow of what it used to be. The access road into the site is scary as we rode the fence on our right and I swear our outside left dual was off the rode over a pond that was three feet below. There are better places available.
