They could cut down 1/2 of the trees, give people more of a chance to find satellite and pay for upgrades like decent roads into the park. North side is the only place to get cell phone reception and very few spots support satellite. $15/week for cable is atrocious for what you get. Sites are very tight because park is old and they still think everyone has a 28 ft travel trailer! Probably won't come back.
This has gone so far downhill it is now down right dangerous. It is the only park close to relatives. They had 8 coaches on one - 100 amp circuit. 96 degree heat meant NO ONE had power. Owners could care less, they were trying to put more rigs into the same area! Sewer system is a joke. Town of Black Diamond won't approve any upgrades as they are trying to force them out.
This has gone downhill over the years. 1/2 of the sites are now unusable for all but the very smallest of RVs. They don't cut back on the shrubs/trees and roots have heaved on a lot of the sites so you can't back in. We will Not be coming back again.
Signage at entrance doesn't tell you where to turn- hint go to the 'shack' not the office looking building. Staff ok but expect that everyone knows everything and has been there numerous times. Being told to go find something wasn't helpful. If going again we would look at G section first for a 2 week stay. Pull throughs are side-by-side utilities and not much room. Might come back.
Large sites. If you want satellite TV make sure you park on the west side of each street. Need a tripod in order to shoot between the streets to get the satellite. 30 amp & water. Dump on site and honey wagon available. Nice pool. Very quiet at night. Sparsely populated during the week. One of the few places available to stay around the Seattle area, works for us as being near family and we use memberships for stays. Everything you could need is in Issaquah, just a short drive away.
This was our 5th year and our last. They absolutely refuse to enforce the leash rules for pets. Our cat, on her leash for evening walk, was attacked by 2 non-leashed 80# lbs. Their owner yelled at us for walking down the street with our cat! Reported to management and they refused to do anything about it. Several people reported having their animals attacked by off-leashed dogs and nothing was done. Also had vagrants wandering through park. They cleaned out a lot of old park models, if you do not have a pet, those area would be nice. If you have a pet, this is not a place to be.
They have 5 sites for travelers - rest for long term residents. Said they no longer give Good Sam discount and won't be in the next book as it generated to many people coming in! Lots of road noise, but did taper down after midnight. Won't know if we would stop again - it is out of the way. Lots of parks around the area but all for long term residents, not for travelers.
Passport America and Escapees discounts. This park is a good example of what is needed for an overnight stop. Easy in and out, power/water/sewer. Subway next to the fuel station was great for sandwiches after our drive - no need to heat up the coach on a hot afternoon. Next morning out and on our way. A little noise from the road/trucks at the fuel station but not bad. Definitely would stop again.
Easy on and off for a one night stop. Weekend rate is to high or I would have rated an 8. Noise really wasn't a problem - this is a park near a major interstate, of course there is going to be some traffic noise. As far as the animals next door, never heard them.
Rate for electric/water only with Escapees discount. Good place to stay for overnight. Tight sites but ok. Interstate 80 noise is a constant hum - offset by the air/conditioner running and fans because of the heat.
Tight getting into and out of sites - lots of cars parked in the street area and the turns are TIGHT! Appears most are long stays, with some overnights. Overpriced, but then everything seems to be, as there are no amenities.
Pretty park, nice staff, but the size of the sites and the horrible way you are put into them; we will have to back out because we can't go forward in a pull through site! Plus they have sumble strips every few feet and don't know how to angle them enough so that big rigs don't get jolted. Then there is the dip coming into the park that gives the rig a big jolt. Also they have enough rules to choke a horse, maybe because of so many who are stationery renters. It could be so nice if they knew anything about how to run a park.
Used PPA for 3 nights. Close to everything we needed. The short term sites are pull-through, but you need to unhook because all utilities are in the back of the site, plus the roads are narrow and not much turning room available into the site. Will stay again when we are in the area.
Really tight getting into and out of the back-in sites. And if you want 50 amp it has to be the back-in sites. They could take out some of the palm trees and make things easier. Windy the whole time and lots of sand blowing through. Not our favorite TT park.
They have put in stakes so you can tell where the end of the site is - makes pulling in so much easier. Still overpriced, but is clean, safe, nice little cafe for breakfast, beats the other places nearby.
They almost doubled the price from last year. No improvement in facilities, just double the price. Our price reflects the senior discount. Increased price has cut down on the number of people here. Except for holidays, looks like a lot of sites are always vacant.
Great addition to Tyler. Rate is based on a month's stay while we were doing doctors visits and having eye surgery. Couldn't have been better. Starbucks is 5 miles away, it is quite at night, beautiful stars out. They are just beginning to get this into shape. Nice large sites, some with gravel pads, others grass. Ample parking for cars/trucks in front of rig. Most sites have a patio. Super friendly staff. Not fancy, but clean and safe with plenty of room for our cat to walk in the evening. We will be back again next year.
Rate reflects Escapees discount. Would rate higher except for the gravel road and all of the dust getting in and out. Nice folks, take you to the site. Good hookups, site fairly level and we did have some shade. Verizon cell service OK. Good place to stay for trip to Little Big Horn historical site.
Good for an overnight stop. This time of year hardly anyone around. Would rate higher if there was a difference in price for FHU and W/E as there is for just electric. Wouldn't call the sites really level especially if you are in the W/E area.
Basic park which worked well for visiting friends. No frills and thus over priced, but seems to be the case for all of the parks in the area. We've stayed at the other park in Hamilton - never again. Would rate higher if the entrance was better laid out and signage better thought out so you could get in easily. Will use again when visiting friends.
Weird office hours and layout is a little tricky if you are pulling a toad. Friendly people working in the park. Got a great recommendation on place to get shroud for A/C replaced (Big Sky RV). Narrow sites, but some shrubs in between so doesn't feel so crowded. Verizon cell phone works well. Road construction makes getting to the park very difficult.
Price reflects PPA for 50 amp site. Interesting layout. Good place to stay for a trip to Devil's Tower. Even have a geocache on the property. Cell phone service was good (Verizon). It was easy to get satellite. Management needs to put popups into the 20 amp w/e sites, not the pull throughs where bigger rigs should go. Would have rated higher if they had better management of sites to rig sizes.
Nice park for an overnight. They don't take credit cards but tell you when you call about that. What they don't tell you is that some of the GPS systems have the site south of the off ramp not north. Wish they had included that tidbit (acknowledged when we were checking in) as it would have saved us having to unhook. Have pull through sites for overnight. Kind of an unusual arrangement, but it worked. Also have some back-in sites. You see Mt. Shasta from the park.
We stayed here in 2007 when it was just the old site haphazardly placed amongst the buildings. Nice job on the new park--clean, well laid out. The entrance isn't well marked and is a bit of a job depending upon how long you are. Exit is a no left turn which means going down a few blocks to get to where you need to be. Entrance off of 3rd street is closed at times, so can't count on it being open. Would have rated higher but at $40/night this is on the high side with only Wi-Fi as the amenity.
Boy what a disappointment. TT must really be hurting for money when they can't even cut the grass so you can get into sites. Actually it is the 50 amp sites that they don't mow so they can cut down on their electrical charges. The place was worth what we paid - $0. Unfortunately, this seems to be the norm for Thousand Trails.
It's way overpriced for what you get. Mostly long term residents. There isn't a pool. The best sites are in the back. Very little noise from Highway 101. Close to things. It would rate higher but for the price.
Clean park and handy to everything we wanted to do and see. It is a tad expensive for what you get, but this is California. They pick up garbage/recyclables at your site. Friendly staff. We had partial shade for part of the day. It will get better as trees grow. Would definitely stay here again. The only negative is the price.
All of the utilities are towards the back of the site - again made for people with 5ers not motorhome. Also the map doesn't tell you that the outside ring sites that just water/electric are all grass. And once you get on the inside ring there is no way to get back to the outside ring without going out of the park. Payment is self-serve and they do give a senior and Good Sam discount. There are also several full hookup sites for those staying longer. Price is high for a county park, but this is California. Looked like a nice place for longer stays in the area. We would stay here again.
Overpriced for what you get. All utilities are WAY in the back - might be fine for a 5er, but not for a motorhome if you want to keep your toad attached. Our site was far from level - and the park was practically empty but they bunched everyone up in one area. Security didn't even bat and eye when we drove in a 12:15 am, not sure what they were watching for but obviously if you are in a car don't worry about it. Noise from 101 wasn't that bad. Don't think we will stay here again.
All of the sites are set up for 5th wheels - all of the utilities clear at the back of the site, with lines indicating where the bumper of the unit has to be. If you are in a MH don't let them park you against Van Buren - - might be fine for a 5er, but you really don't want your bedroom next to that road. Golf course is undergoing work. Sites are barren sand. We had considered this for next year, but just to far a drive for everything and the noise from the road got to us.
What a great place for an overnight stop. Don't know why someone would object to children using a city park, but for us it was quiet (except for I-35 road noise), only 4 rigs in last night. Would be great for a couple of days as the golf course is next door. Definitely will stop again. Would have rated it higher but the cost is a tad to much for what is there. That said, good power and water and there is sewer available. Weekly rate is listed as $140 and Monthly rate listed as $400 both including electric.
Weird sort of park. There are 3 sites that are back ins, others are pull up and figure out where you fit. Payment is on the honor system. 3 miles east of US 77. Good for an overnight stop - noticed a couple of people who were probably there for an extended period of time. Water is available if you have long hoses - water spigot for every 3-4 sites.
Not a bad place, overpriced but then it is a KOA. Road noise wasn't that bad and the train was far enough away that it sounded nice. Nice to have pizza delivered (and it was good) after a day on the road.
Stayed under ROD - put up in the northern flat gravel area - even though lots of spaces were empty in other areas. Roads are AWFULLY narrow, take time getting in. Branches overhang the roads - lost a black tank vent on one of them trying to leave. Also exiting the top area was difficult because of erosion and people parking cars out in the road and the staff doesn't care. Road traffic is very loud. Not sure if we would stay again.
I was expecting more. Sites are uneven, the "natural grasses" they are trying to grow are sage brush. Cellular reception is very bad. Unless you like to fish not much to do. Could be really nice, but it isn't.
Very nice park for an overnight stop. Windy, but that is the plains. Good 50 amp power so no problem running air conditioner. The place is well laid out. Definitely would stop here again on the way through - might even spend a few days and see Dillon.
I'm not sure where the others were staying, but as before, we had a nice site, area was clean, all we could want to do in the park, easy access to all of the area. Yes, there was a horrible condition down on Main Street with the construction, but using the back gate off of University eliminated the need to go near it. Yes, there was dust from construction, the park has no control over that, and shouldn't be down rated because of it. Laundry, rest rooms, and pools at the north end of the park where we were: all clean and usable. Only problem we saw was not enough recyclable containers and some of the residents would put garbage in the recycle containers. Again not the park's fault that some people are so dumb. There are some sites that slope towards the road for drainage, but nothing that is impossible to level on. In fact, if you can't level you shouldn't be RVing. Yes, there are lots of Park Models around the park. This is a 55+ park in Mesa: of course there are park models. I'm not sure where some of these people stayed, because it sure wasn't at the Mesa Spirit that we were at! We will be back again for the 2011-2012 season.
Don't know what park the reviewer who gave this a 2 was talking about, but it certainly wasn't this park. Convenient, clean, easy to maneuver, easy to get to places we wanted to visit. We will certainly stay here again when in the area.
A wonderful US Army Corps of Engineers park just outside of North Little Rock. Ideal for seeing Little Rock. Small and quiet park. Lots of armadillos around - our cat wanted to hunt them. Great deal with the senior pass. Just off of I-440.
If you are member of Coast-to-Coast, you get stuck in their "meadow". Dust bowl is more like it. It is pit which means it gets HOT, power isn't good, WiFi is non existent except at 2:00 am and people are not friendly when you register. You make their life difficult and they really don't want to deal with you. We will never come here again. They lost a possible membership sell to us because of their attitude.
Lots of noise from the road behind us and the trains at night. Sites are really close together and tilt down for drainage. OK for an overnight. Manager very nice, but wouldn't stay longer than overnight. Would have rated higher but getting out with a big rig is a problem due to the way the drive meets the highway. Definitely need to fix that.
What a gem. We really love Corps parks, especially with the senior discount. This one also had w/d at each rest room area. Had we stayed longer, would have used them. Loved seeing all the sailboats go past our spot each day. A little much of a drive each day to Atlanta to visit friends, but the inexpensive price more than paid for gas used. And nice wineries to the north make for a great day trip.
They have gotten so big it is no longer a friendly place to be. Had no maps when we checked in - didn't tell me they had opened up a back entrance, so what had been a quiet area is now a noisy main street. Didn't tell me that sites across the lake were available to those using affiliate memberships. In fact couldn't be bothered with anything but yelling that everyone was going to fast - except for the hundreds and hundreds of golf carts with teenagers careening all over. Upkeep on sites is non-existent. Most need additional gravel to support rigs, drainage is still a problem. That said, if you are staying in the Flint area, there is not much else available.
What a poor excuse for a membership park. We came in under ROD and left early. I got tired of no water pressure from 10:00 pm until 10:00 am and the power going at in the middle of the night. Site was so bad we had to angle in in order to reach the hookups. Water and electric are at the road and ganged together so every other site is on the wrong side for hooking up. Make sure you have got long hoses and extension cords. Road is a disaster and the locals run up and down at excessive speed making the numerous potholes worse. The personnel went through the park with the honey wagon dragging the hose on the ground and leaking sewage all down the street! Go somewhere else. We will never stop here again.
I wondered if we were at a different park than everyone else. When we called we asked if they had a 50 amp site with the ability to use our satellite tripod. Site we got was 30 amp, and we had to run 100' of cable across the road to get satellite reception. In addition, the site was so unlevel we had to use boards under tires and couldn't put out the front slide because we were so close to the rig next to us. Manager/owner wouldn't move us to a better site because he had "parties" coming in. Level 50 amp sites sat vacant all weekend, the 'parties' evidently never showed. Would not stay here again!
Another COE park without water at the sites - must be something in the upper midwest. Nice park but they don't seem to enforce leash requirements for dogs - had several running loose all over the park. Nice sized sites and nice tour of dam close by.
Another park that could be so much better with just a little work by the owners. Road noise, but that is to be expected. Getting into the sites can be a problem with having to swing way back through grass. Utilities are all the way at the back of long sites, so you end up way back in the site.
If they had known ANYTHING about RVs when they laid out the park, this could be a great place to stop. Pull-throughs are too short for MHs with cars, not adequate turning spaces, back-to-back hookups, etc. Water spigots were useless we had to run off the tank because we couldn't get a tight connection. All in all, pretty disappointing and it could have been so much better.
I'm not sure where the previous poster was, but obviously not at the park I'm current at which is Desert Shadows - WHR. The roads have a few cracks in the asphalt and are constructed so that when it does rain the water runs down the center of each road. They don't have storm sewers here - the roads channel what little rain they get away. There are a lot of snowbirds that put out a lot of little things to help make their site seem more home like. I have walked the whole park and have not seen one "trashy" site. The odor is from the stockyards west of town - there is no way to avoid it and it is not the fault of the park. Yes, there are a lot of fees - which is true of most membership parks this year. Wi-Fi is always a hit or miss proposition at most parks. The power is very good, each site is level, has gravel base, a concrete patio and a place to park along side patio. Easy to get into and out of each site. Nice recreation areas, club house, etc. For the price, it is hard to beat.
What a gem so close to the Metroplex. And there's a Super Wal-Mart and Starbucks about 3 miles north! Nice large sites, some in the woods, some right on the water. Some sound from the I-35 freeway bridge, but pretty minimal. Nightly rate reflects the federal Senior Pass rate.
Great COE park. Most sites have view of the lake. Road back to park needs a little work. Most sites are fairly level. Large sites with good power. Will definitely stay again when in the area. Rate reflects the federal Senior Pass rate. Great that Wylie now has a Starbucks.
Smaller COE park. Rate reflects the federal Senior Pass rate. We stayed for 11 days: a nice area. New Wal-Mart just 3-4 minutes away. Also a new Starbucks in Wylie. Good Verizon connection. Big sites: some are not perfectly level, but not really a problem. Most sites have a view of the lake. Would definitely stay again if in the area.
Very narrow spaces and extremely difficult to get a satellite signal. Nice managers who work very hard at keeping the place very clean. Great for 1-3 nights while seeing the sights. Noise from street dies down at night except for occasional big truck at 3 in the morning.
This has become a place for ATVs and motorcycles. Wouldn't have stayed here if we had known. Had ATVs and motorcycles going by our bedroom at between 6 and 7 in the morning. They put us in a site that barely had room for us. This was the second site as the first one was way too small! The trees are not cut back so we scratched the side of our coach. Couldn't get to the pool for all the kids on the weekend, members left after dark, so we would have them pull out at 8 or 9 at night. This park is a long way from anywhere and there's not much to do if you don't have an ATV or boat.
Stayed under C2C and were put up in the worst possible place on the upper level next to the trailer storage area. Luckily we were only staying one night. Road noise was pretty bad. Sites closer to the river would be better for a longer stay. Snowbirds abound and some of the sites were starting to look pretty tacky.
The park is becoming awfully expensive for a parking lot. Workers insist on stacking everyone up and leaving rows empty rather than giving everyone some space. But it is handy for visiting friends and/or family in the area.
Were there before the 'season' began so for a couple of days we were almost the only ones in the park. There are a lot of rigs left parked and used on the weekends only. But they seem to maintain things quite well. Some of the sites are hard to get into because of small trees that don't line up with site lines. Back ins are much better than pull-throughs. Sites are very narrow. But it is a nice park, they were just opening the cafe the weekend we left. Great area, pretty country and an easy drive up to Yosemite. Oakhurst is just down the hill and has everything you need. We stayed under ROD and would definitely go back again.
We stayed in under C2C in the "short term" section - which is right next to the freeway, and so has lots of noise. WiFi isn't available in this section. Nice park, but since they don't like 'short termers' the feeling you get is of step children who have to sleep someplace. We would have considered this for a 3 month stay next winter, but won't because of their attitude. Lots of Park Models with "reduced price" signs on them.
We would have rated it higher if the pool was heated - that's the only drawback that we could see. The rate is a little high for the area - it may be why there were so many empty spaces. I hope they make it. The monthly rate is reasonable.
The layout of the park is quite confusing - utilities are all over the place and don't make any sense. People plug in all over and the office won't correct it. There was considerable damage done during Hurricane Ike that they are slowly cleaning up - - lots of mud moved down the hills and they lost several trees. Since we stayed under ROD it was $0/night for us - otherwise we wouldn't stay. Lots and Lots of permanent residents and some rigs really look pretty bad.
Wonderful COE park - much cheaper than LBL campground just down the road for the same facilities when using the Senior Pass. Site 113 is a great site if you have a satellite dish. Watch deer wander by each day.
Nice people who own the franchise. Pretty good layout. Nice that we could help ourselves to the riping corn. That said, like all KOAs it is overpriced for what you get, but it served the purpose that we needed.
This could be a really nice place with a little work. Most of the park seems to be seasonal and the people who 'work' in the office regard those traveling as a nuisance. Did think that the $5/day extra if you wanted to use air conditioning was excessive. The place isn't worth $30/day as it is. Thankfully it was cool so we didn't have to face that problem. Never received a site map of the park nor was I told that there was WiFi - though I did see the tower. In fact no information for someone who is spending just a few days. Thankfully they had put some crushed rock on the sites as the whole area was wet, wet, wet. As I said, could be a really nice park if they wanted those traveling, but I don't think they do. That said, if you have family/friends to visit in the area, not a bad place to stay. Cell service is very limited.
Great park for a stay in the Bangor area. Can combine PPA and Escapees discounts. They don't know how to use their reservation system well or it isn't good as they are always moving people into slots then moving them again in two or three days because of units coming in. They would be better off not assigning people to specific spots until they were at the campground. Large group of people who spend the summer there. They charge extra for 50 amp and then charge extra for A/C on top of the 50 amp charge! That was why the lower rating. Will stay here again.
Functioned well for us while visiting Cape Breton. We're C2C members. The pool seemed very nice, and one the weekend families made extensive use of it. Road in/out is only wide enough for one vehicle, and there is no way of seeing what is coming from either direction. Tight getting into some sites. We were in the upper section and could get satellite using tripod, but at the first hint of rain, lost the signal.
There is no cable available. I'm not sure the previous poster stayed. Didn't see the owner, but that is OK. Noise was VERY present, but it was somewhat dimmed. This is strictly at place to stay when you have visiting to do - no amenities of any kind. There are really only 3-4 sites available for traveling public.
Rating would have been higher if they had fixed the water system quicker. The gnats were horrible - couldn't walk the cat because of them. I was told 50 amps weren't available to C2C members, but later arrivals could get them! By then we were set up and didn't want to break down and move. This place wasn't bad for touring, and the trees did help with shade in the overbearing heat. We would probably stay there again in the future.
I'm not sure that the person who reviewed in April was at the same park as we were. We had a nice pull through will new gravel roads to the site (#4). Site was fairly level and drained well as it was raining when we came in and rained all afternoon and evening. Lots of things for kids to do. We will definitely return when we are in the area. Not the road from 220/I-74/73 could use a lot of work, but that has nothing to do with the park. Cell phone is a little weak, but we did get broadband service with the air card. Friendly people at check in.
Very nice state park and wonderful golf course. Site #1 is great for a motorhome and we were able to get satellite easily at that sight. Only water and electric, but for 5 nights that is not a problem for us. Air card service was pretty good and it was nice and quite. Would definitely stop again if in the area.

Not the greatest but not the worst KOA we have been at. The noise from I-95 is constant. The pizza delivery was great. We used this as a center point to visit different surrounding areas. There is NO possibility for satellite reception and they charge $2/night for cable! Probably won't stay here again.
We stayed as Passport America members. This is a very rural camp that is used mainly by people fishing in Lake Marion. Very nice sites overlooking the lake. Yes, there was a fish smell at the end of the day when everyone was cleaning their catches. One should be aware of that when coming here. Since it was off season, most went home on Sunday and we were almost by ourselves for the rest of the week. Lots of interesting history nearby. Very quiet - would stay again if in the area.
We were here for a full month. Nice park, the only problem is some road noise from Rock Crusher and Crystal Oaks roads - but that is gone by about 10 pm. They are trying to sell lots, not sure they are having a lot of success. Did see that the monthly rates for next year are going up over $100. Too bad as that will probably put it beyond our budget for next year. Only negative is the lack of really good restaurants in the area. Most are mediocre which is sad because of the abundance of fresh seafood, etc. People are not overly friendly - a lot of groups of people who have been coming together for years and it appears outsiders are wanted. Luckily we do a lot of other things so it doesn't matter to us. Also a few really tacky units around, but that is not unexpected.
This was our 5th stay at Fort Wilderness in the past 25 years. Since the hurricanes came through in '04 they have removed a lot of trees, shrubs, etc. It opens up the park and took away some of the privacy there use to be between sites and the buffers to the road. I did see a lot of planting going on so hopefully some buffer to the roads will be there before long. As always we stayed in one of the outer loops - much roomier. We had no problem getting our 38 ft MH into our site except for the fellow across from us who had is big dually sitting out in the road. Otherwise, pretty easy in and out. Overpriced, but it is Disney and the ability to stay on the premises is well worth it. I wish the theme parks were as well taken care of as the RV park - we may not be back because of the lack of cleanliness in the theme parks.
Nice park for an overnight. Road noise was fairly constant, but not unbearable. Very few open spots as most appear to be working in the area and are there for a long term. Park appears to be clean. Staff VERY friendly.
WAY over priced for what you get. Access isn't easy and LOTS of road noise. Park itself is nice, large pull throughs for overnight, appears mostly long term tenants, manager is friendly. We stopped overnight so didn't use the gate that others have noted is a problem. Wouldn't mind the road noise (we've had worse) but at that price!
Good place for an overnight off of I-10 at exit 372. We were able to pull our 38 ft MH and toad into the space, just hung over a foot or so, but plenty of room from others to get by. We are parked in the row north of the main building which helps block the noise from I-10. 50 amp power available. 10% off at the restaurant with the paid receipt.
After reading some of the previous reviews I was a little leery about coming here, but we have been pleasantly surprised. Beautifully kept park, very friendly staff when we checked in, site is OK but I can see that some on the lower level are very narrow. However, it appears that some do not know how to locate their rigs to make maximum use of a site. Also this isn't a place where people would spend hours just sitting out by their rigs - to many things to do and see in the area. Nice public park right next to the park and you get a key to get back into the RV Park from the public park! The only 2 distractions are the freeway noise, which is kind of a constant background, but being so close to the freeway means you can get out and about very easily, and the very few spots for guest vehicles to be parked. Pricey, but then we expect that in a major metro area. We will probably return when we come back to the area.
As WHR members we were pleasantly surprised at how well this resort is - much better than some others we have been to. Had EXCELLENT WiFi, and since we got one of the few 50 amp sites, had trees to give us afternoon shade. Only wish the Desert Hot Springs area was cleaner - the park is nice and clean, the area has garbage strewn all over the desert. Not as nice as the desert in Arizona around Casa Grande.
For an easy in and out from the I-5 freeway, this would be a good choice for overnighting. The price is kind of steep for what you get, but there isn't much else out here. Sites were nice and level, plenty of them, and there wasn't a lot of noise from the freeway. Also truck stops for refueling and several restuarants (fast food and franchise) within walking distance.
Easy to get in an out, except for the awful speed bumps. Instead of telling you that the limbs could be a problem, why don't they just trim them. There isn't much we can do about the height of the motorhome. For a one-night stop to visit family, this was an ok place. A LOT of noise from the freeway behind - luckily it did die down at night, though it was going FULL bore at 6:00 am. I think they are trying to improve - noticed a lot of cleaning going on, but they do have to do something about trimming the trees.
Convenient place for seeing Sacramento - a bit overpriced, but then it is in a large metropolitan area. The lights were awfully bright at night, but does help with security. Sites were large and had good 50 amp power.
EXTREMELY narrow sites. Picnic tables sits beside neighbors sewer hose! Some sites, ours, have trees that partially block site. Back ins appear to be a tad better. Nice and easy walk to the beach. Weekends are full of families.
Nice small park next to Suntides golf course. Only about 20 of the sites are for traveling public, the rest are seasonal (or longer). Some of the seasonal residents are downright hostile about their 'patch of grass', cursing at us because our cat (on her leash) was upsetting their unleashed dogs! Dogs are allowed to run unleashed in the pet area, which is not fenced off from the rest of the park, so in effect they run all over. Sites are back to back hookups, most pull-throughs, large and fairly level. Could be a great park with a little work on attitude. But I don't think they really want traveling public, it is so much work checking them in, etc.
We left early because the sewer backed up and they did nothing about it. Said we shouldn't have just opened the valve, but rather cracked it open as their system can't handle full tanks being discharged! The park was damaged by the winter storms and it doesn't appear that they really care about making a comeback. Lots of long-term stays that look really bad. FHUs are near the highway - luckily it is quiet at night. As someone mentioned, this could be a great park, but not with current management.
This is a membership campground located about 5 miles outside of Monroe. One of the best we have stayed at. Nice sized sites, most pretty level. Section next to river doesn't have sewer, but does have great river views. Excellent staff. Nicely laid out park. We will definitely stay here again.
Nice small city park. Nice level sites. Great for 4-6 day stays. Can walk to the river from the park and there is a boat launch adjacent to the park. We will definitely stay again when we visit family in the area.
A pretty good KOA park. On the pricey side for what is there, but not bad. Nice people in the office and around the park. All of the picnic tables have been situated for 5th Wheels, not MH, but we're usable. Roads a little bumpy and narrow. A couple of long term vehicles that looks like they were the worse for the wear, but it is a quiet park. Probably will stay again as we have relatives in the area. Would have stayed longer but they said they were booked up for the weekend. When we left, they indicated that some had already withdrawn their reservations.
The "rules" included the statement that you could not use A/C, electric heaters, heating strips, etc. They provide 30 amps, but don't want you to use it! Maybe because it was spring they hadn't really got set up for summer yet, but there was mud all around, about 1/2 of the sites weren't really usable, the road was in HORRIBLE shape and all of the campsites needed gravel put in so you didn't sink up to your hubs. Manager had no idea on where to put units. Put us in a site that wasn't big enough. Luckily there were some maintenance men working and they helped us park in a site that would handle our rig. The camp site is about 1/2 mile from the main road (and the clubhouse) and looks like it wouldn't take much of a hard rain to have that river flooding into the campgrounds. This is a membership park and we stayed under ROD. Will not return, there are better options in the area.
We couldn't have found a better park in the area. This is what all parks should be like. Gorgeous setting, listen to the surf as we go to sleep at night. Nice sites - if you have less than a 40 ft motorhome, go for the small interior sites and save money. DEFINITELY will return again.
OK for an overnight stop. It is difficult to get into and out of - trees need to be trimmed. The pullthroughs are in the back - you have to go back out of the park and around a corner to get to them. Being PA makes it good for overnights.
I'm surprised this park hasn't been reviewed before - it is a wonderful park if you like golf and other activities. It is one the very west side of Yuma, a little off of the beaten path. But it is worth the drive. Nice golf course - a full 18 holes. Large backin sites, but make sure you have extra hose lengths, all of the utilities are in the back. Minimum 20' but more like 30' sewer hose is needed. Sites are very wide with a concrete patio. You can wash your rig and car at the site. Most are snowbirds and rates are much better if you do a minimum of 30 days.
A resort in name only - - really a big parking lot. Staff was friendly and they do have activities. However, they had no map of the area, no information on things going on in the area, etc. Also, the only grocery within 50 miles are at little mom and pop facilities. Would have been nice to know ahead of time so we could stock up. Very poor cell service - we joined several others each day driving 4 miles down to Hope to make calls and get online. Lots of geocaches in the area, so there are a few things to do.
Good for an overnight stay. Staff went out of their way to be helpful to everyone when an ice storm closed I-10 for part of the day. We elected to stay over even after highway opened. Small cafe is a bonus. Would use again when traveling in the area.
This is a GREAT park for an overnight stop. The owners couldn't be more friendly and helpful. They have only been here about 1 1/2 years - are working on upgrading park. Some road noise, but not bad. Nice pull throughs that accommodate coach and toad. Will definitely stay here again when going through West Texas.
This is a Good Sam and Passport America park. They have raised the PA rate to $17.50 per night for a maximum of 6 nights. Require cash for PA. Park is all concrete and gravel. Level sites, easy to pull into and out off with toad attached. Propane available on site. Easy access to everywhere in Tyler. Some noise from Highway 31. VERY friendly owners and staff. Couldn't do enough for you. We will use this park again when we are in Tyler.
The confederate flag at the front should tell you all you need to know. Charge extra for 50 amp service (ok - I'll go for that) and then state in the rules that you can't use electric heaters or a/c units. Why do they think people pay the extra for 50 amps? Roads are atrocious. Pothole city! WiFi is pretty good - but only if close to the office. Lots of seasonal campers. Place just looks worn-out - office is dark and dingy.
Great park for an overnight stop or for a couple of days. Good WiFi and cable selection. Sites are a little narrow, but fine for limited stay. All utilities are groups conveniently together. There is room for this park to expand. It is a Passport America park. Friendly owners.
Good place for an overnight stop. Very friendly staff. Long pull throughs. Fairly level sites on gravel. The description in Passport America book is a little misleading - it is WAY less than 1 mile from the exit off of I-65.
Good place for an overnight stop. There is some road noise, but it did quiet down during the evening. Nice sites, plenty of room. Good free WiFi. We will stop again if traveling in this area of Georgia.
They offer discounts (Good Neighbor & Passport) and then add on 'extras' so that the price is back up to the price for Good Sam's Discount, if you want anything more than back-in, 30 amp, and water. This is more than a little 'shady' on their part. During heavy rain almost all of the campsites had standing water around the units. Make sure you have something under the jacks as they will sink. Interior roads could use a lot of work. Staff was nice when we checked in and were working all of the time doing routine maintenance. If the interior roads were better we would probably come back.
Great campground. Road noise is probably a problem for units right next to the road, otherwise this would be a 10. All back-ins, but very easy to get into. Nice wide sites, didn't feel like the neighbors were in our laps. Friendly office staff, easy check in. This is a C2C campgrounds. We will definitely be back.
Nice park with easy access to Cincinnati via I275. Nice owners, good pull-throughs and even though you could hear highway sounds it was not overly loud. Would stay here again if in the Cincinnati area.
Membership campground, Coast-to-Coast, AOR, and ROD applicable. VERY family oriented. Close to Flint for various activities. One problem is that everyone is allowed to select whatever site they want that is open so popups were in 50 amp sites. Can be a little noisy when lots of families are present, but at night is quiet. We will stay here again when in the area.
WiFi works sporadically - not very much signal strength from the back rows where those staying only a couple of days are put. They have a statement that if you have a washer/dryer in your RV, you're not allowed to use it!
Interior roads need some work if they want more big rigs. Nice people and a great family park. Quiet at night and great views of the stars. Lots to do for families. Is quite a distance from Flint (nearest major city). Rating would have been higher if they had sewer or WiFi. Would stay there again if in the area.
Nice campground except that the sites are cut (sort of) into the side of a hill. Higher sites are awfully steep. If level sites were cut into the hill, would rate higher. There are lots of trees, close to the highway, WiFi (but weak signal) and a restuarant at the office.
Good place for overnight stop. Even though it is near I-80, sound is muffled. No cable service, but otherwise nice layout. Does have shade trees. Large area for walking animals. Breakfast is available in the recreation room.
Pool wasn't filled when we were there. But layout is nice, easy to get to, fairly level sites, and nice personnel in the office. Another plus is the great Sinclair station just down the road - a really, really good RV fill up place. They have done it right.
The WiFi only works if you are close to the office. They are trying some limited fencing/shrubbery between sites to help create some limited privacy. Worst part was all of the construction workers who are long term stays and leave at 5:30 am in their diesel pickups. Quiets down again at 6:00 am until everyone starts leaving around 8:00 am. They do have a nice office area with a loft for using your laptop. Unfortunately the stairs (curved) to the loft are quite narrow and not for the faint of heart.
The sites they put Passport America participants in leave a lot to be desired. We had trouble getting jacks down because the ground was so soft (even with pad underneath) but there was too much slope not to use the jacks. WiFi worked well. Sites are very narrow so you may have trouble deploying a wide slide.
Membership park - they were down right rude to those using C2C, RPI, or AOR to camp. Regulated to a small area, not allowed to use most of the facilities as those are for members who BUY their spots. Railroad train is not only LOUD, but runs by every 1/2 hour. Stayed 3 days and could not take it any longer and left ahead of time.
Nice park. Especially like the screening between sites because the sites are very narrow and without the screening you'd be looking at your neighbors drain hose. They have a thing about using plastic leveler pads and want you to use their wood. Nice and clean park. Wi-Fi is nice - but should be included in the price.
They advertise Wi-Fi, but then said it was "out". Girls at the desk had no idea what Wi-Fi was, so if they ever had Wi-Fi it was a LONG time ago. The sites had not been mowed in some time and the mosquitos were horrible. It was easy in and out, but would not stay there again.
Only back in parking - made difficult because Management let people put satellite dishes blocking backing in easily. Small restaurant featured huckleberry ice cream and buffalo burgers. Also meat store next door selling buffalo meat. Had view of Flathead Lake from campsite. Trees sheltered area from wind. No cell phone service because of hill - had to drive about 1 mile each way to get service.
Wi-Fi didn't work. Poorest excuse for pull-thru - you pull up along side the utility connections and then the curbside is on the 'street' that everyone travels. Large number of derelict looking RVs (some up on blocks) that appear to have been there forever. Very difficult to get out because of the way 'permanent' residents park their cars, etc. How they got an even halfway good review in Trailer Life directory is beyond me.
The pull through sites have you pull onto grass and supposedly you will drive down and around and out when you leave. Unfortunately, the owner is always watering the grass so there is no way a heavy coach could drive on that and get out. The owner was also going around trying to convenience people not to run their air conditioners (90+ heat) because there was some seed whisps blowing from the cottonwood trees that he said would "clog" the air conditioners. We ran ours and no problems. Also, the number of 50 amp sites were limited. It was convenient to the area we were visiting, but the cost was not reflective of the limited services provided.
This park has become a KOA park. Supposedily Big-Rig friendly, but the entrance/exit is JUST wide enough for a diesel pusher and there is no room on either side. And they charge $4.00 PER DAY for 50 amp power. Their WiFi was working even from the back row where we were. A lot of long term rentals and they don't know how to park their cars/trucks so that they are protruding into already narrow roads making getting in with toad still attached a real chore. Sites are narrow - the picnic table almost sites on top of the sewer hose from the next campsite.
A Passport America park which is about 4 hours north of Amarillo, which makes it a convenient place to stop for the night. Had no trouble pulling in with a 37 ft. motorhome with car behind. Might be a bit tight if another unit was behind us. Free WiFi has been added. They seem to be working on the place with some upgrades in the limited landscaping.
Not a bad park. Has a lot of long term residents. It is right on Cooper Street which is a major street in Arlington so the noise is on-going. The Krispy Creme is only a block away. It costs more than Treetops and this isn't as nice.
Older membership campground. Needs to be updated. Golf Course needs some work. The road going in and out was full of ruts. Campground was quiet, easy to get around in. Sites were layed out with utilities back-to-back. With a little work, this could be a really nice place.
They changed the entrance - it is very narrow getting in now. Hot tub has been added and they are putting a small pool in at the campground. Staff is nice and the sites are improving as the trees continue to grow. Biggest down side is the noise from the state highway which is CONSIDERABLE at night and echos up from the road to the campgrounds.
Small state park. Quiet when we stayed there. Excellent shaded sites, though they can be a little tight. They have pictures of all of the sites, along with dimensions at the gate - makes it easier selecting a site. Lots of raccoons in the area, so be careful with food.
Great park. WiFi pretty expensive for short timers, not bad on a monthly basis. Give you a neat little laminated card with info on your coach and car after you check in - I am continually pulling that out because I never remember license plate numbers!
Love this park! Even in 96+ heat the shade made it easy to sit out and enjoy the campgrounds. Lots to do and golfing only 5 minutes away. Sites are far between, but sometimes the trees are alittle close to the pad so take the time to really look at the sites before picking one.
Can walk to the beach - only a couple of blocks away. Stayed because friends were in a condo 2 blocks away on beach. Small sites - just fit 29 ft Class C and toad. ONLY 50 amp power - have to leave a $20 deposit for adapter for 30 amp. Sites VERY close together, luckily they weren't full. Some long term individuals that let animals run loose and bark for a long time. Also loud music one night.
