About 7 miles from I-40, this quiet park is next to a secondary highway that has little to no traffic during the night. Access to the park is easy with plenty of room for one or two rigs to line up near the small office. New owners/managers live on site and are personable and friendly. They went out of their way to make sure my site would accommodate my slides. Park backs up to a farm and woodlands. Deer were seen near the fence line and a couple of horses came by for apples I had on hand. Laundromat is small with only two washers and dryers however they worked well and never presented any problems. My site was hard packed gravel and level. Though a back-in, it was long enough to park my TOAD in front of the motorhome. Additionally, there was a poured cement walkway leading to a cement pad with a good, solid picnic table. The nearby town had a Walmart and several good eateries. Had planned on staying one week and ended up extending for the entire month of October. Highly recommended for some good R&R.
Gravel roads and sites featured wide roads however navigation could be difficult as TOADS or extra vehicles often extended beyond designated areas. Our site was large enough to accommodate us with all slides extended though leaving very little room between units for any feeling of privacy. Sitting outside of an evening would have been uncomfortable not to mention the lack of a supplied table. We stayed one week and had planned to stay longer but trains seemed to pass every half hour or so alerting all with their blaring horns. The Air Force base nearby wasn't much better with much air activity. Additionally, a nightclub backs up to the park...their base pounding into the wee hours of the morning. Great BBQ restaurant within walking distance as is a small grocery. If in the area again will seek alternative RV park.
Near the highway exit, traffic noise was minimal in this nice, older park situated behind a Texaco station. Camp hosts/owners were extremely personable...escorted us to our site and offered help if needed. Sites were well-packed gravel and the longest I've ever seen. Mature shade trees, a fenced dog run, and well-maintained landscaping made for a first-rate facility. Would have liked to stay longer but they were getting ready to close for the season and their rates were a little too high for my budget.
Rate reflects promotional package for three nights at $39.95 requiring listening to a sales presentation...(all of an hour). Absolutely beautiful grounds were well manicured. Office was closed upon 5:00 pm arrival but a late arrival packet was left with easy to follow directions to a back-in site. Site was large enough to park my TOAD alongside the unit. Lots were large enough to sit comfortably outside without encroaching upon neighbors. Paved streets, multiple trash receptacles, and nearby overflow parking made this one of the nicest parks during our travels. It is member only but for a reasonable one-time fee and nominal annual fees it would be enticing except for the prospect of harsh winters. Would have rated a ten however as the "season" was ending they closed many of the amenities like the restaurant and the pool. And the onsite gas station was out of everything but 85 octane fuel. Check-in and hosts were friendly and efficient the following morning and we would have extended our stay had we been able to keep our current site.
Turns out it was an easier park to find than I thought it would be as we approached. It is located behind the museum following the drive to the left. Plenty of room within the park to maneuver even the largest rigs however the entry-way is tight (just go slow). Check in was pleasant and efficient. The park is all gravel making walking difficult with no grass for pets however there are plenty of places for them along the park's perimeter. Would have rated higher except was commanded to move my car while doing laundry because "That's where the boss parks!" Perhaps the staff was having a bad day but a poor attitude reflects highly on park ratings.
Passport America member park that offered the discount for up to one week made this an enticing prospect. Following their directions it was easy to find. Office was closed at our 4:00 pm arrival but a note told us to pick a spot and pay later in the evening. Lots of shade and gravel sites lent to the feeling this park had been around a long while. Situated and owned by the same people that own the Super 8 hotel, traffic noise was minimal. The hosts were friendly. And the laundry room stayed open 24 hours making it easy to access one of the 4 washers available. A television in the laundry room made the chore more bearable as well. Plenty of grass between sites and room to enjoy sitting outdoors was appreciated. Train tracks running alongside could have been problematic however only one train per evening went by to my knowledge. The only real negative was access to and from was through the Super 8 parking lot along with a convenience store (watch for that convenience store cross traffic).
RV Park selections in this area are few and far between making this KOA one of the best places to park for the night however like most KOA's their pricing is extremely high for what you get. Here, what you get is a large gravel parking lot with hookups. Our site was next to the propane refueling station and our view was industrial in nature. Being merely a nightly rest stop we only used electric and left slides retracted. It was an okay stop for our needs with easy access along with easy check-in and nice hosts that lead us to our site.
Great Passport America rate of $13.50 nightly combined with a safe environment, extra large lots and hosts that go above and beyond makes this RV friendly mobile home park a good decent place to stop along the way elsewhere. They have a nice swimming pool and are conveniently located to plenty of shops and dining options. They also like their speed bumps (my only complaint). Only reason I rated it a 7 is it is not a destination park rather a good rest stop for one or two nights.
Passport America Park: stayed for one night. Very nice camp hosts showed me the site which was a short walk from the office. Ours was the only transient with the others being long-time permanent residents although most kept their units neat and clean. Park is all gravel making it less pet friendly, but fine for an overnight stay which was our plan. I didn't even unhook the TOAD. Would stay again if in the area.
I’d much rather be sitting outside enjoying the great weather than writing this review, however no picnic table along with very limited space makes outdoor living unrealistic in this neat and clean little park. Unfortunately in an attempt to rake in every almighty dollar it seems the owners have found every nook and cranny to place hookups to pack in as many RVs as possible. With rigs on either side, my TOAD to the rear and the two rigs parked in the road in front of me, gave little space to sit outside and enjoy the “Bridge View.” By the time TOADS are parked, navigation in and out of some of the sites is difficult and requires a second person to help (camp host assisted upon our departure). The hosts are pleasant and helpful though there was a minor mix up with my reservation that was resolved to everyone’s satisfaction. Grounds are pretty and well maintained. My site was a drive-in/back-out that over looked the river and I-5, although to gain higher cash flow, the park has turned the side of the road way into “premium river sites” that blocked my view. Traffic noise was bearable but evident none-the-less. Park is pet friendly with a nice designated area for the family favorite and plenty of room to walk along the river bank. My site barely contained my 37’ motor home with absolutely no space available for my TOAD which I had to park alongside the road (as did everyone else) making the once easily passable lanes much more difficult to navigate in larger rigs. Power tower and other hookups were convenient and worked as they should, although a donut was needed for the sewer for a secure connection. The supplied cable vision came in clearly on most of the channels and the Wi-Fi worked but was weak, however the hosts were aware and working on its repair. Due to the cramped conditions in an otherwise very likable RV Park, I’ll be cutting my stay short and moving north hopefully to find an RV park with a little more breathing room.
The park is across the street from a community lake park project with all kinds of family activities. That is the Sparks Marina. Local law enforces the 20 MPH speed limit throughout the area making it a safe place to walk or bike. The RV park is well lit and features paved roads with cement RV pads. Ours was a pull-through. Back-in sites bordered the edges. Our hook ups were well placed, however a long sewer hose was required. The sites were a little too close for comfort. Toad parking was nearly on top of neighboring sewer, and using the picnic table meant looking up at neighbor's slide out. The fake astro-turf is pretty in photos but served no purpose other than lowering maintenance costs. Late night pet needs couldn't be accomplished on site like normal real grass sites. All dog business must be at one of three dedicated fenced areas. Though nice and featuring pickup tools and a sitting bench, they were inconvenient for both dog and man making the "pet friendly" designation somewhat ironic. Other advertised features lost luster in reality. The store was very limited and the swimming pool fairly small. There weren't many activities for kids so they ended up playing in the streets and around occupied sites. I was surprised by a child playing at my site as I pulled into park one afternoon. The $20 rate reflects the 28 day rate. I'd rate the park high for its location but gave it the lower rating because of the inconvenience to pet lovers.
Price reflects Escapee membership; however, it does not include electrical usage and taxes. Park is a large graveled expanse with hookups and is suited well for an overnight stop. Wi-Fi is included in the rate; however, it seemed extremely slow. So I opted to use my Verizon service which worked very well. There is a nice dog run near the office offering Fido shade, grass, and cleanup implements. Access was easy from the highway and check in was a breeze with excellent hosts.
Well marked from the highway with easy access. Pull through sites were also well marked with all connections in good working order. The hosts/owners apparently live on site and were very friendly and helpful. They work hard to make the park as nice as possible in the harsh environment. Though they do have a dog walk area, the lack of grassy areas within the park may disappoint Fido.
Initial contact was with very friendly staff personnel via telephone. Easy to find, very easy access for any size rig. Wide open park covered in thick grey (slate?) gravel. Site easy to locate, well marked. Our pull-through was long enough for 37 foot motorhome with toad and wide enough to park toad when unhooked. Our site was one of a few that had enough grass to make the dog happy. Plenty of trash dumpsters throughout the park and easy to access. Majority of sites are full timers probably working in the oil/gas industry, but all units were well kept. No strays except occasional feral cat. Quiet stopover resulting in a couple of good nights sleep. Only problem were excessive high winds, but that's NM. And the Wi-Fi signal was weak at our site, number 122, however the Verizon access card worked well. Rate reflects one night of Passport America discount.
Spent a little over three months at this private campground. Owners live on site along a main road while RV sites are off the roadway nearly invisible to passing traffic. Weekends during the summer saw a crowded park but weekdays there were only about a dozen RVs making a very peaceful setting for the summer months. Everything is done first class by the owners. Though I didn’t use the public washrooms or laundry. I used the swimming pool nearly every day. It was always pristine. I had no problem navigating the park’s gravel roadways in my 37’ Winnie towing a Jeep. Sites are also gravel and fairly level. I did need to use blocks to keep one leveler from sinking into a soft spot. Owner kept property grass cut on a regular basis. Cable is not offered however Wi-Fi was included in site rental. It worked though slowly at times. Owners could be seen cruising around on a golf cart usually stopping to say hello. My rate reflected their monthly rate which included all utilities. Definitely would recommend this park.
Easy access from all directions and large check-in area with a very nice office/laundry/swimming facility. Nice and informative hosts got me checked in quickly. Concrete at great site was covered in dirt that would become a muddy mess during even light rains. Requested another site and they obliged with apologies. Park had just recently reopened after area floods and there were not many other campers throughout the week. Park has well maintained gravel roads and sites are level concrete pads. All hookups are arranged as they should be and work as they should. View of the river was nice allowing an ever changing landscape of river boats and barges. Holiday fireworks could be seen well from the office end of the park. Vidalia had a Super Wal-Mart (what else do you need?). Historic Natchez has it then and more and is just across the river in neighboring Mississippi. Will definitely stay again.
Near major towns and cities with shopping, sights and restaurants yet in a country setting just off a major interstate. Berry Springs is across from a large public park with a convenient access gate. Not quite level sites feature pea gravel while all roads are paved. Current camp hosts are a hard working couple that go out of their way to accommodate guests. Met me at the site and assisted in backing and setup. A nice, clean picnic table appeared within minutes of arrival. Great, friendly neighbors. Lack of shade trees and spartan appearance reflects the lower rating but would definitely stay again if in area.
Very quiet town that caters to sport fishermen is spotted with campgrounds but none are nicer than this one. Easy access, hard packed pea gravel drives and sites (some have cement pads), nicely landscaped featuring a stocked centrally located pond makes Beacon 44 an inviting stay. Camp hosts/owners live on site and go out of their way to accommodate RVers. Many on site activities insure good food and fellowship with much of the food supplied by the campground! Very low monthly rate of $225 means you will be lucky to get a site however several available at this time. Sites are back-in and large enough to accommodate my 32' coach with space to park TOAD. Adequate laundry facility and within short drive to major shopping. Definitely a return destination!
Great find! Large, clean, lake view and lakefront sites, concrete pads. Pads sloped enough that to level my coach wheels were off ground several inches making stairs higher as well. Hook up towers were lighted for nighttime convenience however many did not work. Several full time units were trashy or trashed and brought down the overall appearance of an otherwise very nice facility. Great laundry room with five washers and dryers. Nice meeting room and lots of potluck dinners and functions. Very accommodating hosts lived on site. Close to Livingston and major shopping and dining places. Will return when in area.
Mostly full-time residents with none of the "normal" camping amenities or functions made this merely a stopping point in route elsewhere. Camp hosts were full timers and very nice and helpful. Facilities off noisy highway and residential disputes added character but would disturb anyone looking for restful sleep during what should have been quiet hours. Park served its purpose and was easy access. Will not return.
Preferring to disconnect my tow vehicle and backing into a site during daylight, I had no problem finding a good drop off point for the TOAD and was able to park easily on the large site at the back of the park. Cable didn't work so management sent someone to check it and repair. Site access was great however check-in area was crowded and confusing. Other than that, this is a nice, clean campground with a cozy office and friendly and helpful management and if I get back to the area would stay again.
Very friendly staff made this travel stop a pleasant experience. Sites were large enough to accommodate my small motorhome and tow vehicle with plenty of room between neighbors. Some long term residents combined with transients and all got along well. Large club room for potlucks available. Gravel roads and grassy sites were easy to navigate. If in area again would definitely stay. Rate reflects 50 amp Passport America
First camping experience as an adult, making review non-competitive. Easy access of major highway, good directional signage. Large, well planned check-in area. Lone attendant guided me into back-in site on upper, least expensive level and assisted hooking up lines. Received one free night through in-house promotion. Each power tower featured a sufficient night lite eliminating need to use outdoor lighting. Sites are nicely manicured, and trash is picked up each morning. My 32 footer was smallest unit in park but I felt I was treated as an equal to the mega coaches also there. In fact, my neighbor in a 42 foot 10-wheeler talked with me at length several times offering much needed advice and guidance! I'd rate this park a ten if it had incorporated shade trees into its design.
