The best thing about this park is the staff, workampers who are happy to be here and take good care of the facilities and campers. The primo sites are tent sites, the next best sites are taken by staff. The pull thru sites aren't on the water, and the cable sites from 21 up the row face a basin, not exactly the ocean. Pretty ugly at low tides, although you can watch the local clam diggers. If you're the least bit claustrophobic opt for the pull-thru sites. Otherwise, you have windshield views for motor homes or rear views for trailers. Views from your side windows will be close-ups of the next RV's walls or doors. Sites are that tight. Forget about extending your awnings. ALERT: Cell phones and air cards will incur significant roaming charges from domestic carriers and Canadian. You'll have to travel the 25 or so miles back to Machias to get out of roaming. The park has WiFi but it can be spotty. Restaurants outnumber other businesses in Lubec, and if your tastes aren't extremely discriminating you can find good meals. Uncle Kippy's is within walking distance from the park and has really good haddock. If you like lobster, you can find it fresh everywhere. The rain and fog have been frequent, and have made touring and hiking less than enjoyable. During sunny days, be sure to see as much as you can because the next day could be drippy. A must see/do is the trip to the E. Quoddy Head Lighthouse off Campobello Island at low tide. Requires climbing up and down steep narrow steps, and climbing over rocks and seaweed, but walking across the ocean floor in the Bay of Fundy is awesome. The border crossing to New Brunswick is quick and easy with passport or picture I.D. We've enjoyed being here and would stay at this park again.
This is definitely a campground, as opposed to an RV park. Most big rigs choose the sister park, "Narrows Too", in Trenton. Lots of pop-ups and bumper pulls, although many sites accommodate larger fifth wheels and motor homes. Not many satellite-friendly sites, and the majority of sites do not have sewer. Some have cable. Our site, 340, being higher on the hill, offers an awesome view of the bay and has cable but no sewer. Also, being right across the road from the Wi-Fi antenna helps. Our Verizon phone gets good reception, but our 4G Jetpack card is hit and miss (Olympics don't help). If you want a little peace and quiet from the crowds, hang around the campground during the middle of the day and soak up the scenery. Like probably most other area campgrounds, this one is packed with campers in peak season, but it's quiet at night. The park is well staffed and all are friendly and super helpful. The facilities, while far from new, are clean and well maintained. If you enjoy tent camping, this is definitely the place to be. Half the campground is devoted to tent sites, and the sites are big and beautiful. Our rate indicates a special for Thousand Trails members during the month of July. We couldn't pass up extending for a total of four weeks.
We made reservations at this park while on the road, unfamiliar with it but needing a one night stay on our way to Bar Harbor. At first, the congestion was a bit intimidating; there were mostly trailers everywhere, we couldn't tell . This park has quite a long history, and the sites were configured back when rigs were much, much smaller. The coveted ocean-front sites provide amazing views but with very little elbow room. We asked for a pull through and had no trouble making the turn to pull straight in, with minimal leveling. The owners are delightful people, and the area has quite a bit to offer. We would definitely return (after Labor Day) and try to get an ocean-front site and spend some quality time here.
There is nothing to complain about here. The interior roads are all paved and in excellent condition. There is a variety of sites, which are well spaced. Good water, good power, scenic, pool, playground, definitely a great place to camp in the Poconos. Verizon phone service & MiFi work reasonably well. I don't understand the last two poor reviews, we didn't see any of that. The staff were present and very accommodating. Lots of activities for kids and teens, including an indoor water park just up the road at Timothy Lake North. This is one of our favorite Outdoor World parks. Only negative is that for a park this large there are only three washers and dryers.
This is an old park 3.5 miles north of I-80, which guarantees no highway noise. The name pretty much says it all. It is definitely rustic. Maybe primitive is a better word. Resort; not close. We were welcomed with a friendly smile and were directed downhill on a narrow, winding, tree-lined drive to a "pull-in" which meant we drove across the grass to one of the terraced sites and pulled in, toad and all. Glad the ground was dry. The row of six pull-through sites is in a grove of beautiful old pines and firs with some long-term sites around the perimeter. They are all well kept. There was only 30 amp service. but voltage was 110, with no circuit breaker. We were careful how many amps we drew. Definitely not big rig friendly. However, we needed minimal leveling, and we were pretty much shade covered. Forget satellite. Verizon signal was strong, as was Verizon MiFi. If you don't mind maneuvering a bit, and can deal with 30 amps, this is certainly OK for an overnight stay.
As one reviewer said, this place is huge, and with the temperatures hovering around 101 we didn't venture out to inspect all the amenities. We are in a full service pull through that, unbelievably, took us less than a minute to level. First priority was hooking up the electric so we could get the A/C going. Second was to pull the drapes and lower the shades because there is nothing of any beauty or interest to look at here. The gravel sites are overgrown with weeds, there is no shade, we're by the storage yard, and did I mention it was blazing hot? The voltage is marginal running two A/C's. The water at this site is clear. With the A/C's running we can't hear any road noise. All we really wanted to do was to get through Indianapolis on this holiday, so we could leave out from this side of the city in the morning. There aren't many choices of RV parks and this one was the least expensive. At one time this was probably a nice family resort. We wouldn't want to stay longer than one night.
Many people have reviewed this park and the comments are pretty much the same, so I'm tempted to not spend the time to write anything. However, we use and appreciate this site almost daily while on the road, and I'm committed to reviewing every park we stay at during this long trip. You get a friendly welcome here, and all the necessary amenities for a comfortable stay, at a fair price. We asked to be put in the back, away from the road, and it's like being parked out in the country. Even way back here we receive a decent Wi-Fi signal. We would stay here again, but there's nothing for kids or adolescents.
The staff was pleasant on check-in and led us to our pull through site. We held our breaths while we extended our slide, looking out the window at the neighbor's awning. Really close. It's pretty and woodsy, with lots of birds and squirrels. No satellite but the park provides good cable, and our Verizon air card works just fine. Like most KOA's we see, this park is aged but we have no complaints and would stay here again.
When I read the previous reviews about the friendly, helpful guy in charge, I wondered if we were at the same park. The guy I spoke with on the phone to make the reservation while we were on the road was gruff, definitely not pleasant or friendly. When we checked in, he was the same in person. Only cash or check, by the way. The pull through site he assigned us was so unlevel, our front wheels would have been in the air. We had to unhook and pull in behind a trailer, with two inches between our slide out and the maintenance fence. The guy told me where to park and when I did, he yelled at me that I was over "his manhole." We were just too tired to leave and keep driving. There were plenty of pull throughs in the lower section of the park, but he refused to let us park there. The cable worked well, the pool was clean, and the power was adequate. Road noise is a given, so no big deal. The price was right. We won't return.
This rate is monthly, plus electric. We pulled in the park, went into the office and looked around, decided it was awful, and while sitting in their driveway made reservations for another place. We had stayed at Almost Heaven two years ago while our son was receiving cancer treatment, and it wasn't great then, but now it's horrible. Probably due to being sold to a housing developer that will take possession in five years. The park was packed with long-term residents, and showed much deterioration and decay.
The nightly rate reflects a month's stay and estimated electric. There is nothing to complain about here - all the interior roads are paved and wide, the Wi-Fi is lightning fast, the sites are reasonably roomy, the power is good, the maintenance is excellent, the staff is friendly and helpful and the location is convenient and there is trash pick-up at site three times a day. Yes, there is some freeway noise, but it sure is nice to exit the park and immediately get on that freeway. Behind the property is a huge, very nice municipal park that can be accessed by a gate. Great walking or play gounds for kids. There are many extended stays but all are well kept and the park owners are expanding to offer more sites on the adjacent property. We will definitely stay here in the future.
This park is definitely over priced, and when we found out it was $38 nightly we should have turned around and gone back 3 miles to Beatty RV Park. But, being tired we decided to stay. Nice wide turning areas, nice pull throughs, nice trees that offer bits of shade. The park is all packed dirt and gravel, but it looks like it's been swept or raked. Stone beds with power pedestals separate the sites. Much quieter than we were expecting. Pleasant, helpful staff. Only real negative is its stiff price increase since last summer.
This park is well maintained and landscaped beautifully. A portion of the park borders fields of bell peppers and food processing facility, another part backs up to storage facilities, and another part backs up to shopping. Yes, there's a train, always a train, and plenty of freeway noise. Along with all that comes the convenience of being close to transportation and shopping. A negative is that the sites are too small and don't allow for adequate parking of tow vehicles. But all the sites are concrete and look to be fairly level. There are many long terms (with kids), but their sites are reasonably maintained. The bathrooms are amazingly clean, although showers are awkward due to lack of bench or shelf. The pool is sparkling and there is a big outdoor kitchen for parties. We would definitely return if in the area.
The park facilities, except for the interiors of the bath houses, all appear to be in reasonable condition, unlike some of the CA Thousand Trails we've been to. The staff members can be friendly one day and ignore you the next. The large pool is the main draw, and there is a lot of day usage and public camping. The biggest negative is the dust, which billows over the sites when a rig passes, even at 5 mph. Also the entry road is rocky and dusty. Full hook-ups would be nice. The best part is the location. Gilroy and Morgan Hill have just about anything you're looking for, and the coast is reasonably close. We would definitely stay here again when in the area.
Don't come to this park expecting peace and quiet, it is strictly a vacation get-away and let loose kind of place. Lots of groups, lots of noise. Also, despite the name, don't come expecting lakes. There are none, unless you count the pond of stagnant water you can't get down to anyway. Actually, the best section of the park is the terrace which is set aside for non-members. The tent section is very nice. The "Adult Lodge" is a joke. It's upstairs from the main "Lodge" and the ping pong table and pool table are both up there and so are kids. Like most Thousand Trails properties, this one needs some TLC. It is quite beat up. The only thing that appealed to us is its proximity to Yosemite National Park. The staff were efficient and accommodating. It's a busy place and there is not much time for chit-chat. It's ok for what it is. At least it had full hook-ups.
If you RV and play golf and are or will be in northern CA, you must visit Likely Place for at least a few days. A championship 18-hole course is layer out in one of the most beautiful places on earth, the high desert. The food served in the club house is not your usual fast food fare, it is well-prepared and delicious. The owners and staff are friendly and accommodating, and the park itself is well maintained and welcoming. Would give it a 10 except there is no pool or other facilities for non-golfers. The laundry area is serviceable and clean, and has two washers and two dryers. For hikers there is a three-mile perimeter road that encircles the property, and a new nature hiking path. Check out the Likely General Store (upstairs and downstairs) and drive the 18 or so miles to Alturas for some great restaurants.
We have a love/hate relationship with this park. The beauty, located in a large pine forest, is incredible. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. There are lots of activities and facilities for entertaining kids. However, the non-premium sites are bumper to bumper and extremely close. We looked out our door right into another RV's door. We couldn't tell their picnic table from ours. We looked out our bedroom window to see the rear of a big tag axle motor home only a few feet from the side of our rig. Even with everyone squished together, people felt like they had to have a campfire. The resulting smoke was a real nuisance, as was the general noise and chaos of having so many rigs so close to each other. If you can, go ahead and spring for a premium site (along the perimeter and much larger and nicer). The laundry was a joke. For almost 500 spaces there were two washers and two dryers. Several new ones in boxes were sitting there, but of no use. There's a great laundromat behind a bicycle shop in the Y.
Snowflower had an enormous snowfall over the winter and it damaged all the facilities. Cliff section is the only campground available at the moment (if you can call a large paved and striped parking lot a campground). There is no water, just electrical service. No sewer anywhere in the park. The pool bathrooms are being used, and they have seen better days. Everything needs to be replaced. Very depressing looking. The bathrooms at the lodge smell horrible. The buildings all need to be repaired and re-painted and some sustained major damage from the snow. The maintenance crew is working on snow removal, but we can't see how they can get this place up and running by the end of July. No store or any services are available as of mid-June. All you'll find here is the spectacular beauty of the high Sierras, and really friendly rangers.
This is a great little park, with paved roads and concrete pads, a small tree at each site, picnic table, grass, and super easy on and off I-80. Just far enough so that the traffic noise is muffled. Yes, there are permanent residents, but aren't they pretty much everywhere? The park is well maintained, quiet, and the staff is friendly and helpful (although no one gave us the Wi-Fi password at check-in). We would stay here again.
We travel to SLC once each year to visit family, and because of the scarcity of RV parks in the SLC area, we usually alternate between Pony Express and KOA. We have a love/hate relationship with Pony Express: we love the mountain views but hate the smog and smell from the refineries. We love the convenience of having restrooms and dumpsters at convenient locations throughout the park, but we hate that RVs are packed in like sardines when the park is full. Now that there are so many full time residents, the park stays pretty full. There is a severe lack of guest parking spaces, and most of the "residents" have more than one vehicle. So, they just park in the road in front of their site, blocking traffic flow. If we wanted to pull out right now, we'd have to go next door and ask that they move their car so we could get out. It's a good thing we don't have slides, because we don't have room to extend them without hitting the neighbor's tow vehicle. And we are in a "deluxe" pull through! There is one very nice meeting lounge, but it is mostly unavailable because it is being used by rallys and groups. The noise from the freeways is bad enough, but with all the big diesel trucks within the park, it can really get loud. Also, at the risk of sounding like the "age police," we've noticed some RVs that obviously don't meet the park's 10 year age limit. On the plus side, the park is well maintained and the staff is accommodating. And there's that great paved and striped hiking and biking trail along the Jordan River adjacent to the park.
This is a rural old-style KOA, with not much to offer. Ok for an overnight. Train noise is loud at night, and after two trains within 10 minutes, we turned on the AC on high cool to help us sleep. Like most KOAs, it's on the pricey side. The WiFi was strong and fast. We'd return if we needed to.
This park is all you need for an overnight. Fairly level pull through sites, speedy WiFi, good power, reasonable price, etc. It was definitely adequate. They had a dog run area with tons of "planted" fire hydrants in different colors. Cute. There is a river at the back of the property, but it's muddy-colored and not a great feature. It was pretty miserable at 100 degrees and strong winds, but we'd return if we were traveling through.
The steep inclines mentioned in previous reviews did not pose any problem. Actually, the best part of the park is that it's terraced up the hillside, so there's some kind of view from each site. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. We had difficulty trying to level, but eventually got to an ok point. There appear to be a large number of extended stay people. The location is convenient to town, shopping, and I-25, which I suppose accounts for it being pretty pricey for what it offers. No restrooms or showers or pool. No shade. The interior roads are wide and paved. The park itself is quiet, but there is a lot of traffic noise. We'd return if we found ourselves traveling through and needing an overnight spot. However, we think it's a better place to live than to visit.
This park is 5 miles west of I-45, through congested areas with heavy traffic, so it's not very convenient for an overnight stop. The road it's located on is quite busy so the traffic noise is excessive, worse than parks we've stayed at that are just off Interstates. Most sites are filled with long-termers; over-nighters are lined up on the pull-throughs located to the side of the office. Hook-ups are OK; Wi-Fi is strong and fast. Rate is rather high for what you get. OK for one night. We would not stay here again.
We've stayed at this KOA several times and consider it to be one of the best in the system. It is an extremely busy park, but well laid out and well run. There are great walking trails, the staff are friendly and helpful, there are shade trees and grass at most sites, and it is conveniently located to Temple Square and Interstate access. Yes, it's in the middle of an aging part of town and you can hear the trains, but the good far outweighs the bad. We've tried Pony Express, but keep coming back to KOA.
If your rig is a 40 feet, you are towing and don't want to have to un-hook, DO NOT accept Site No. 1. We called ahead and made a reservation, explaining our needs, so it wasn't like there were no other sites available. In order to pull through, it was a choice of tree limbs on the left, or running over the corner of the landscape timber on the right. No brainer there. We weren't able to pull up enough to clear the side drive because then we wouldn't have been able to hook up anything. We had to use 25 feet of water hose and the power cable just barely is long enough. Forget the sewer hook-up. To pull through and out the drive, we have to dodge the huge tree in front of us. The voltage is 104 to 106, very low. We are right on US 89-A, and it is extremely noisy. Now for the positive: The lady who checked us in was very nice, our site is fairly shaded, the WiFi is strong and fast, the antenna TV reception is decent (trees block satellite), and the park is well kept. Because we don't use amenities like pool and restrooms, and prefer big rig friendly parks, we probably will not return.
The check-in building is located down a road to the right when you enter the park. It's kind of awkward for big rigs because it's a fairly small parking area and you have to make two sharp right turns to get out of the lot and back to the road. The ranger station is manned for only a short period of time each day, if that. There are only a few 50 amp sites, and those we saw were mostly occupied by 30 amp rigs. The interior roads are gravel, but in good condition. The grounds were mowed and well kept. There are lots of lakeside sites with beautiful trees. We were able to pick up satellite from our site. The adult center was pleasant, the WiFi worked ok, and there were good walking trails. There are over 30 covered bridges in the area, and the map you get in the office has the coordinates of each. We had fun serching out the locations. We plan to return the next time we're in the area.
As someone else said, follow the park's directions, not GPS. There is a 10' clearance bridge on Mill Creek Road. We went around it with no problem. This is a beautiful park, the grounds are consistently mowed, there are four small lakes for boating and fishing, the sites appear to be mostly level, the buildings are well maintained, the staff is friendly and helpful, and there is lots to do in the park and in the area. We opted for one of the ten new 50 amp sites ($3/night) and although they are a ways away from the other campers, they offer peace and serenity, like being out in the country, but just a short walk from the action. This is a great walking park for people (and their dogs). The manager has a home on site and you can tell this is a well-managed park. I would have given it a ten except there is no store and the pool is being resurfaced and is not finished. This is one of our favorite parks.
These are actually two Outdoor World Parks, Timothy Lake North and South. If your camping rig is anything over 25 feet, don't even consider staying at the North campground. It is an older park, set up for rental and ownership cabins, with few workable campsites. However, South campground is just a mile down the road and with almost 300 sites, has just about any kind of site you want, some in the open and some with deep shade. If you want both satellite and WiFi, be sure to have a compass. WiFi signal originates from the registration/store/activity building. The pool is nice. North has a huge indoor water park and an outdoor pool with a water feature, big game room, impressive store, food service, and is open year-round. If you don't want a loud, party atmosphere (very kid/teen oriented), you can stay at South and still use all the activities at North. There is much to see and do in the Poconos, and we enjoyed our stay very much. Don't expect much from Timothy "Lake". It is small and covered with pond scum and vegetation. We stayed at the South campground and would definitely stay here again.
This is a busy park due to its location, and it doesn't claim to be an RV resort just because it has a pool. It does have a real batting cage, which we've never seen at a campground. The front section closest to the office, reminds me of a rural trailer park. The back section where big rigs are assigned is forested and like a state park with sites that happen to be closer together (much closer). We were pretty sure we wouldn't be able to find a satellite signal because of all the trees, but it locked on right away. Cell coverage is good and our AT&T air card worked well, so we didn't have to go up to the office hot spot. Power was good and our pull through site was level. Lots of duck families that have their own island houses in the middle of the pond, which isn't scum covered. From the back, it's a long walk to the lone dumpster, but bathrooms and laundry facilities are convenient. There are many seasonal sites, but all are well maintained. Staff is helpful and friendly and park is just far enough from the Interstate so you don't have traffic noise. We stayed one week and will return the next time we're in the Philly area.
We were expecting a great park, but it exceeded our expectations. Our site was on the hill in H section, not the easiest to level, but well worth the effort. The layout is like three separate campgrounds: 50 amp, 30 amp, and W/E, and each area offers beautiful scenery. There were very few planned activities and we never saw very many people in the activity center, but with so much to do and see in the area, it was understandable. The pool was large, clean and in good condition, but there was no shade except for a few tables with umbrellas. Lots of geese, but they didn't bother people at their sites. The mowers were out almost every day, and all the sites were in good condition. This park would definitely rate a ten, except for the low voltage we experienced, once it got hot and people cranked up their A/Cs. We turned ours off rather than risk damage. We really enjoyed the farms and farmer's markets close by. We'll definitely come back.
We love this park. The staff is friendly and helpful, the facilities are beautifully maintained, the sites are spacious, and the animals are fun to watch. Lots of baby animals. The activity center is pure country, with a big stone fireplace at one end and tables set up on raised platforms along both sides of the room. There are big wooden country cutouts along the chair rails. There are three playgrounds, a nice, fenced outdoor basketball court, pool and gameroom. On weekends they have pony rides and petting zoo. Good TV reception, and we have shade and satellite. There is Tengo Internet available for a charge. We would definitely come back.
We stayed at this park several years ago when it had just opened. Today, it is even better. Extremely well maintained and staff is friendly and helpful. We used the PA rate for one night, and we were able to book one of the two pull thru sites over a week in advance. Our site was so level we didn't even put our jacks down. Everything worked well, the only negative was that the restrooms had signs on the doors that said closed for the season. They had one on each side that was unisex (found by trial and error). We will definitely stay here again.
This is a beautiful, well maintained park, with killer river views. There is a walking trail around the property, with wooden swings along the path where you can relax and look at the river and hills. The cable TV is good, also the WiFi. Someone spent a lot of time and effort in planting flowers in beds along the river. Very nice. Staff is friendly and amenities all in good shape. We would definitely stay here again.
Having been forewarned that the pull throughs were tight, we decided to give it a try. Yep, if you are 40 ft. and towing and not wanting to disconnect, you will extend a foot or so into the road. Also, the turns into the spaces are tight. The cable TV was good, also power and water. The staff was pleasant. The free breakfast buffet at the casino was wonderful (a $14 value for two). We would stay here again.
This is a large, new, well landscaped park that will be a great place for groups or rallies once all the buildings are complete. The interior roads are now all paved, with nice gravel sites that are mostly level. We were led to a shady pull through next to several raised planting beds surrounded by natural stone. We were surprised they don't have cable TV, but we received many digital channels from our antenna. The Wi-Fi worked well. The trains come through about twice an hour, but after a while you don't even notice them. Our water was yellow and cloudy, no matter how long we ran it to flush out the line, due to high iron content. We wouldn't drink it.
Have to agree with the poster who commented on the tight maneuverability. We were given a pull thru space, but had to back up and pull ahead several times due to the tightness of the turn to get in the space. We have a 40' motor home, so obviously we had to un-hook the toad. We were expecting 50 amp, but only 30 was available. We were given a space right next to the restrooms and had to keep our door closed because of the disinfectant smell. Beautiful shade trees, and yes, the train, always the train.
This is an okay place to overnight. The first site we were directed to didn't work because we just couldn't get level. Sites and driveways are gravel, so it can be very dusty. There are quite a few long term folks. We had trouble with our fridge and took it down the highway to United RV, and were impressed with their professionalism and competence. They had us on our way in about an hour.
We've found in our travels that KOAs can be iffy, so we were pleasantly surprised to find a really good one. The staff was friendly and helpful (like a concierge), the park was well maintained, there were lots of shade trees, the sites were level and the WiFi was at each site and was strong and fast. There is a really nice walking path that snakes around a creek behind the park. We stayed here a week and were totally comfortable.
So glad I found this park on this website, it was a green oasis in the middle of desert area. Think it must be a city park - adjacent to the marina - and the grounds are beautiful. We had a pull through space (#16) that was close to the river. Great views. Lots of campers, kids and dogs, but we rarely heard a bark, and the noise levels were extremely low. From where we were, the train noise was not an issue. We hated to leave.
This is a fairly new RV park, with all the amenities except no swimming pool. Beautiful rose garden on the way into the park, and nice roomy, level spaces with plenty of pull thrus. The park hosts were very friendly and warned us about the sprinkler system, which would be an issue if it were going off when you were either pulling in or pulling out. You can see the park from the highway because of the bright red roof on the clubhouse.
This little park was just fine for an overnight stay. Cable TV, 50 amp and Wi-Fi, and a nice view of the mountains across the highway. Great shaded tent camping area. Even on the lookout for the park, we drove right past it because the sign was not readily visible until it was too late to turn left. Had to go into town and turn around and come back.
This neat little park exceeded our expectations. All spaces are pull through, with lots of elbow room. Definitely big rig friendly. The surrounding woods provided scenic views and it was peaceful. Very open and spacious. We will definitely stay here again.
This park was advertised "Big Rigs Welcome." However, it is in a maze of trees and the owner felt it necessary to hop in the passenger seat of our 41' motor home and tell us exactly what line of sight to use to navigate the turns. It was also advertised as "Quiet and Secluded" but the park is just a few feet off a main highway and sandwiched between residential homes. The "modem friendly" turned out to be one cable strung across the carport of the B&B portion, at a patio table next to lawn equipment, car, dog crate, etc. We were told to try to pick up the WiFi signal from the home next door. The park was crowded with warning signs to "pick up dog waste" but dogs ran loose. The cable TV was only for several spaces along one side of the park. We were supposed to stay four nights but we were so disappointed, we left after just one night.
