This park is perched upon a ridge with ravines on both sides of it which makes for a pleasant breeze. The park is convenient to the Branson strip and other attractions. Camp sites are very shaded and larger than usual for a commercial campground. The RV sites are packed gravel and relatively level. Roads are asphalt and in some places in need of repair. It appeared that most pull through sites were relatively short and on top of a small rise which could make leveling difficult for larger RVs. The park was very clean and quiet at night. Management was very friendly and helpful. Cable TV had a number of channels. My only two complaints were that there was a lack of grass in the dog walk areas and we couldn't get a WIFI signal even though we were only a 150 yards or so from the transmitter. We would definitely stay here again when in the area. Rate reflects Passport America discount. Be aware, if you use your Passport America card you will have to pay with cash or check.

This is one of the nicest COE campgrounds we have camped in. The park is very shaded with good asphalt roads and level asphalt RV pads. In addition, each campsite has a raised packed gravel pad which has a fire ring, picnic table and grill on it. There is enough room on the pad for lawn chairs, etc. The number of sites that are suitable for satellite use are somewhat limited due to the trees. Also, on some sites it may be impossible to fully extend awnings due to the trees. We camped here on two different days, a Saturday night and a Tuesday night over the past two weeks. The park was less than 1/2 full and very quiet on both nights. The park is probably very full on holidays and spring break, thus it is much noisier than normal then. Rate reflects Senior discount.

Cost is with KOA discount card. Stayed several days while visiting relatives. Convenient to Lubbock loop. Sites were relatively long and composed of gravel and hard packed dirt. There was no grass in the campground due to a continuing drought and this park could get pretty muddy if it rained much. Some new electrical stanchions had been installed, but there were a number of sites with outdated electrical connections (in my opinion). In fact, the 20 amp outside outlet at my hookup tested as having an open ground; 30 amp tested ok. This park is located just off US 84, but we didn't really notice the road noise. About 20-25 percent of the park was occupied by long term campers. Very little shade in the park again in part due to the drought. As someone else stated, this park needs some TLC! We would probably stay here again only because it was convenient to the area we were visiting.

Cost reflects KOA discount card. Stayed at the park several nights. Decent separation between sites using pinyon pines and juniper. New gravel had been added to some sites and parts of roads. Staff was helpful and guided us to our site. This is in a arid area of NM, so there wasn't much grass and a little dust. Easy access to I-20, but we really didn't notice the road noise. They also have an extra parking space beside the sites for tow or towed vehicles if you rig is too long. We would definitely stay here again while in the area.

Nice, very clean campground near the Rio Chama River. Roads and RV sites are well graveled. There are a number of nice shady sites near the river. There are also a number of big rig pull throughs and back ins along the property line that have little to no shade. If you are coming from the direction of Chama, you really have to be looking for the entrance sign as you can't see it until you are almost past the campground. The owners are very honest people who are very helpful and friendly. We would stay here again if in the area!

This campground is located in a beautiful setting and is super clean. (I hope that it has been spared from the fire that was started by lightning several miles from the campground a few days after we left.) The park has a number of beautiful well spaced spots for tent camping as well as pups and average sized rigs. There are a lot of trees in the campground offering a lot of shade. Most of the roads are asphalt or gravel as well as most of the sites. The pull-through sites have asphalt pads but are unlevel and in need of refurbishing especially for larger and longer rigs. Some utilities for the pull-throughs need relocating also. (For example, my neighbor's electrical connection would have been under my awning had I put it out.) Washer and dryer prices are reasonably priced. I would normally rate this campground a 7, but it is in such a beautiful location and so clean that it deserves an 8. We would stay here again when in the area.

RV park was very clean, sites were level and there were some trees. Sites were slightly larger in size for commercial parks. All roads were paved and RV pads were concrete. Staff was friendly and very helpful and they had a very nice gift shop. They are located on the west side of Albuquerque on I-40, but about 18 miles of Route 66 is close by including the part that goes through old Albuquerque. We were not bothered by any road noise from the interstate. They also serve a light continental breakfast free each morning. We intend to stay here again in the near future. Rate reflects Good Sam discount.

As others have said, this park is in a desert environment, so there is little or no shade. Sites were will spaced and level. Park was very clean. Dog park had grass which my small house dogs loved. Had a number of cable channels with cable TV unlike some other campgrounds with only six or seven channels available. This park is about 12 miles outside of Carlsbad, so that makes it about 32+ miles to the caverns. As far as KOA parks go, I would rate this a 9; in comparison with other RV parks I would rate this an 8. I thought that the cost was too high overall. Price of site was with KOA discount.

This was an overnight stop for us. This is a basic campground with limited amenities that is easily accessible and only a short distance from I-20. Most of the gravel sites for short term campers have limited shade but, were long and average in width for a commercial park. Cable TV had quite a number of cable channels available and WI-FI worked well. Laundry is located next to the camp store and office. We would stay here again when in the area.

This is the nicest COE campground we have camped in. Roads and pads are asphalt and in very good condition. Sites are well spaced and most are shady. Wi-Fi was not available at the park. Had it been available, I would have given this a 9+ rating. Rate reflects Golden Passport rate. We would definitely stay at this park again when in the area again.

This is a clean, quiet park handy to Charleston attractions. Most sites have some degree of shade; however, a few are directly in the sun. The sites in what I suppose is the newer section have very long compacted gravel pull throughs while some of the older sites have concrete pads which may not accommodate some longer trailers and 5ers. Please note that the entrance to the park is located on a major road and is very busy during rush hour so try to time to arrival and departure accordingly. I would have given this park an 8 if it had cable TV hookups. We would definitely stay at this park again when visiting the area.

This was an overnight stop. The campground has long level gravel pull thrus which allowed us to remain hitched to our 5er. There was not a lot of shade at most of the sites. Park was neat and clean. Had cable TV but had a very limited number of available channels. Wi-Fi worked well. Staff was friendly and helpful. Rate reflects Passport America rate. Please note that to get the Passport America rate you have to pay in cash. We would definitely stay here again when passing through the area.

Wonderful heavily wooded, very shaded campground with very large pull through gravel and dirt sites. RV sites are generally level and have a very large raised tent pad, fire pit and picnic table. Roads are asphalt and wind through the trees. Some very large rigs may have difficulty maneuvering through the roads in a few places so be alert. Camp hosts are doing a great job on keeping sites and roadways clean. When we were there, it appeared that the pool had not been opened yet. It is convenient to the Savannah downtown area. Wi-Fi hotspot was available at the park office. There were not a lot of washers and dryers at the campground, so if you need to do a lot of washing, you may have to wait on ocassion or go to a washateria in the area. We would definitely stay here again when in the area.

This park is located within walking distance of the beach. In fact some of the sites are located just across the road running along the beach. The park has been completely rebuilt after being wiped out by Hurricane Katrina. All pads, electrical hookups, etc are new. Sites are asphalt paved and level. There are two loops which are very shaded and apparently heavily used on weekends while the remainder of the park was hardly occupied during our weekend stay. The majority of sites in the other loops are either partially shaded or unshaded. Be aware that the road running along the beach is being re-built with some sections being new and other sections still under construction and quite rough in some sections. We would stay in the park again if in the area.

This is a clean no frills park. Sites are well spaced and most are shady. Gravel pads are generally level. Laundry room is equipped with new washers and dryers but is no air conditioned. Wi-Fi worked well. The park is convenient to I-95, Camping World with several outlet malls located less than 2 miles from the campground. I would have rated this park a solid 8 had cable TV been available. Rate is good same rate for 5 people. Staff was friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay here again when visiting St. Augustine.

Park appears to have been converted from some type of car, boat, trailer or RV dealership. All sites are asphalt and easy to get into. Owners were helpful and even stayed until we arrived after normal closing time. Park was quite and clean. We stayed in a site near the highway and for some who are light sleepers the noise from the highway might be a problem. There was no shade in the park. Overall a good place to spend a night or two when in Lubbock or stopping for the night.

This campground is very similar to a National Forest campground except it has full hookups which we needed. There are sites that will accommodate large RVs as well as smaller sites for pop-ups and smaller trailers; sites are generally well spaced apart except for the area where pop-ups and smaller RVs park. Some sites are not very level. The campground is nestled in amongst Ponderosa pines which gives some degree of shade all day. The park is located at an altitude of approximately 8,000 ft, and when we were there in July, the temperature was pleasant all day. There is plenty of National Forest land immediately adjacent to the campground to walk pets. We would stay here again if we could not dry camp in the National Forest campground nearby.

This campground is very convenient to the Zion National Park entrance and the shuttle has a stop about 1/4 of a block from the entrance to the motel and campground. Many of the sites that were pull throughs have now been converted into two back-in sites. There is some shaded sites along the river that runs along the back of the campground and a few other trees scattered throughout the campground which did not provide much shade. There were sufficient washers and dryers available at the motel and campground. I would not consider this a pet friendly park as there really wasn't any place to walk your pets except the roadways. This campground is very busy and crowded and I would not stay here again unless full hookups were needed and I couldn't get reservations in the National Park.

Nicely shaded and reasonably spaced campsites, a number of which will accommodate larger RVs. Campground is within walking distance of showers, laundry, store and several other facilities. WiFi is not available in the immediate campground but is available at the showers and several other places within walking distance of the campground. No campfires are allowed at individual campsites. We would stay here again when visiting the park.

Stayed here during a weekday and had no reservations. Park was about 1/3 full, but you would probably need reservations on a weekend during the summer months. Park has little shade. A number of sites would accommodate larger rigs. Roads and pads are asphalt with covered picnic table. Easy access to the park from I-15. A good place for spending a night or two while in the area.

This campground has more sites that will accommodate larger rigs than Madison campground. Most sites are generally shaded with lodge pole pines. The campground is a little higher altitude than some of the other campgrounds in Yellowstone, so it seemed just a little cooler. Some of the roads through the campground loops are tight for larger rigs so use care when entering or leaving. As others have said, this is a very crowded campground during the summer. Staff at campground was friendly and helpful. Clean and reasonably priced laundry facilities are located a short distance from the entrance to the campground. We would stay here again when visiting Yellowstone.

Sites are mostly shaded with lodge pole pines in abundance. As others have stated there are no shower or laundry facilities in the campground. It is about 15 miles to West Yellowstone which has grocery stores, supplies etc. Please be aware that there are not many sites easily accessible for RVs greater than 30 feet- I estimate less than 10%. Most of the so called pull-thru sites will require larger Motorhomes and trailers to either back in to enter the site or back out to leave it. Road noise was not bothersome for us. Overall, we enjoyed our stay there. Rate reflects America the Beautiful Senior discount.

This park is easily accessible from I-15. Sites are reasonably spaced with grass in between the sites. Staff was friendly and helpful. Fire rings were not at individual sites; however, a community fire ring near the center of the campground was available for use. There were no shade trees at the campground. There was a lot of space to walk pets. Overall, a good place to stay for one or two nights while around Dillon.

This was by far the nicest KOA we have stayed in. We were fortunate to have a premium RV site which had just been completed. Nice spacious, level compacted gravel pads, manicured lawn surrounding each site and a wonderful view. However, not all of the RV sites are up to the standard of the premium sites as some pads are not level and some are tighter than the premium ones. My only complaint about this RV park was that the price for extra persons was 6.50 without the KOA discount which is the highest we've ever had to pay. Wi-Fi worked OK, but we couldn't get it at the RV. They had a very nice laundry room with many washers and dryers. Camp workers were helpful and friendly. This would have been a solid ten in my book had they had cable TV, but with the beautiful surroundings such as this who needs it! The price we paid included the 10% discount for a KOA member. We would definitely stay here again when in the area.

This public park was a great bargain when compared with the commercial parks in the area. It has gravel interior roads and pads-some pads are not level. Each site does not have a water hookup, but there are a number of water faucets scattered throughout the park near the campsites which you can connect a hose to in order to fill up your tank or even connect a hose to your RV if the park is not too busy. The Friday night we were there, only about 20% of the RV sites were occupied. You pay at a drop box as others have said. The park lawns around the RV sites were well maintained and a good place for pets to be walked. Overall, a great place to stay over a night or two while in the area. We would definitely stay here again.

This is your only choice in Medora for full hookups. WiFi is available in the office area. There are some nice shaded pull through sites with decent spacing on the front part of the park, while most other full hookup sites are tightly spaced on basically a gravel parking lot with no shade. There are also some nice shaded tent sites here in the park. Be sure that you fill up with fuel and have all necessary groceries etc., before arriving in Medora. There's not much available in the way of fuel and supplies, and what is available commands premium prices!

Previous reviews pretty much sum up the positives of this park. A number of sites will accommodate larger RVs. Signs and directions to the park are sketchy and the park is quite a distance from town; we almost didn't find it. There is a small sand beach in the park where kids can play in the lake. I would have rated this park a 9 had water hookups been provided to the individual campsites. Overall, a good camping experience.

This park is relatively new with concrete drives and pads. It has spacious sites with manicured lawns; however, trees are small affording little shade. Has shuttle service from the casino to Mall of America which is about 45 minutes away by bus shuttle. I would have rated this park with a 9 had it had cable TV. With mature shade trees this would have been a definite 10. WI-FI worked okay from our site, but the signal may be weak further from the office area. Washer and dryer area was small for this size of park. Would stay here again while in the area.

This is a quiet RV park which caters primarily to adults-not much for children and teens to do. It has roomy gravel pull-through sites with most sites having some nice shade trees and grass between sites. It is easy to get to/and from the freeway and close to Wal-Mart and other retail stores. Some sites are not level and would require extra effort to level your RV. I would describe this park as rustic camping with full hookups. I had a difficult time rating this park and would definitely have rated it higher had the pads been in better condition. Campers desiring a destination RV park would probably rate this park much lower while those preferring a more “country” type camping experience would rate it higher. We would stay at this park again if in the area.

This is a quiet,clean small RV park located in a suburb of Iowa City. The sites are typical width for a commercial RV park. There are a number of long-term campers in the park. The RV sites are gravel with gravel interior roads. Some sites could be more level; however, they are sufficiently level to permit a rig to be leveled. I thought that the price was a little high considering the amenities provided. WI-FI worked great.

This is the nicest private RV park we have ever used. WI-FI and cable TV worked great; concrete pads were very level and wide with manicured lawns between sites. Driveways were concrete and wide making it very easy to get in and out of sites without rutting the grass! Hosts were helpful and friendly. The only drawback to the park is the lack of shade from mature shade trees. Otherwise, this would be a solid 10+ park!

This is a beautiful well maintained, clean, city park with spacious, level concrete pads, with lots of grass and shrubs between sites. Adjacent to the campground is a city recreation area with several miles of paved biking and walking paths and a fishing lake. Campground is first come-first serve. Sites do not have individual water connections but water faucets are located in the campground. No showers are available either. There are a limited number of sites with 50 amp service. I would have given this park a 10 had water been available at each site along with WI-FI.

Nice small COE park about 6 miles west of IH35-very easy to get to from the freeway. Sites have gravel pads some with covered picnic tables. Some of the camp sites are located along the lake and I suppose you could pull your boat up on the lake shore near these sites. Most sites have full to partial shade. Nice stop for an overnight stay, but I did notice some road noise. We got a site without reservations during the week, but that would probably be impossible on the weekends especially during the summer. Rate is America the Beautiful pass.

This is a small RV park located along the Pecos River in the city of Carlsbad. It had a number of long term campers in it during our stay. There are several back-in sites along the river and two level, gravel shaded pull-thru sites for short term stays. The owners were very helpful and friendly. Their convenience store is located adjacent to the park which is handy. The WI-FI signal and cable TV were very good. The only drawback to this park besides the limited number of spaces available for campers is that it is located along a thoroughfare through Carlsbad, and truck and car traffic are heavy 24/7. The road noise is very noticeable and bothersome(at least to us) at the pull-thru sites which are about 150 feet from the road. Noise level would probably be acceptable further into the park. This park is convenient if you are visiting or have business in Carlsbad, but we probably would not stay here again when just visiting the caverns. I would have rated this park higher if road noise had not been so loud.

We stayed here overnight while passing thru. Park was clean, had asphalt pads and roads and sites were generally well spaced. Most of the tables were covered and most of the sites had some shade. As with most Texas State Parks, a number of the sites would not be suitable for big rigs. The park is located adjacent to a wildlife management area, so there are plenty of deer and turkey in the park. The park also has several miles of river frontage suitable for tubing or fishing. We would definitely stay in this park again.

Wow-what can I say-beautiful surroundings, clean campground, and spacious sites with large Ponderosa Pines in a number of the camping areas! This was one of the best parks we have ever camped in. We spent 8 days here and enjoyed every minute of it except for the nightly storms! Managers and workers were especially helpful in determining which camping area and site would best suit our needs and accommodate our rig! As someone else suggested, be sure and look at a map of the campground since there are several different camping areas ranging from wide-open pull thru RV sites with full hookups, shaded back-in RV sites with full hookups, back-in RV sites with water and electricity only and popup and tent sites. There are plenty of things in the area to see and do as well as in the campground. As several others have said, some of the sites are not very level due to the terrain the park is built on, and the WIFI signal is weak in some of the camping areas. Also, some areas do not have their own shower/restroom or washing facilities located within reasonable walking distance. Don't miss trying the pancake breakfast-it is great and very reasonably priced! The campground also has a store with groceries, ice cream shop and some RV supplies. We would have rated this a 10 had restroom/shower and laundry facilities been near each camping area. Nightly rate was for a 50 amp site with full hookups and Good Sam discount.

This KOA was a pleasant surprise from other typical KOAs. The RV sites were generally well spaced with gravel pads. It is built on the side of a hill so some sites were not completely level. WIFI signal was good; there was no cable TV. The park was clean and improvements were being made. The managers were polite and very helpful. We definitely would stay here again when in the area.

This RV park is located about a quarter of a mile off I-25 and can easily be accessed from the interstate. There is some road noise from the freeway but nothing excessive. The park has long gravel pull throughs and adequate spacing between sites. It offers a number of activities for the family which seemed to be priced a little high. There is a restaurant operated on site and a small grocery and souvenir shop. WIFI signal was good. Overall, this is a good park for an overnight stay. Park staff was friendly and helpful. We would stay here again when passing through. Price shown was for 4 people with a Good Sam discount.

This park has long gravel pull thrus which are relatively level and a number of the sites have mature shade trees. As others have said, the front part of the park is noisy due to freeway traffic at all hours of the day and night. So, if you are a light sleeper don't stay in any sites near the front of the park. The park was clean including restrooms and laundry facilities. The staff was friendly and helpful. There are several restaurants within easy walking distance and a super Wal-Mart less than 2 miles away with diesel. This is a good place for a one or two day stay when visiting North Platte. We would stay here again. Rate included taxes with a good Sam discount.

This is a small campground adjacent to a family owned motel in a small quaint town. Most of the sites are back-in with gravel pads. Some of the sites are pull-thrus with gravel pads for smaller rigs. The sites are typically spaced for a commercial campground. The campground has a small swimming pool across the street at the motel that is available to campers. There are no fire rings or grills at each site and some of the picnic tables are in need of repair or replacement. The positives of this campground are it is quiet and very shady with large mature trees while the negatives are the WI-FI signal is weak and the gnats are terrible especially in the evenings. There are some long term campers in the campground. The owners were friendly and helpful. The campground is located about 4 miles off the interstate, but it is easily accessible. The rate listed is for four persons.

This is one campground of several campgrounds located at Lake Murray State Park, the oldest and largest state park in Oklahoma. This campground as well as others in this park are heavily used and take no reservations. If you don't arrive early on Friday for the weekend during the summer you probably will not get an RV site. Holiday weekends apparently are completely full several days before the holiday. Approximately one-half of the sites have full hookups, with concrete pads and are pull thrus. Some are located along the lake shore. The remainder of the sites are back-in which would be difficult for big rigs to get into. This park was very crowded and I only saw one bathouse/restroom for this campground. It also has a boat launch. The dump station is not easily accessible for big rigs; fortunately there are other dump stations in the park that are somewhat more accessible and available to use. Camp hosts and park personnel were friendly and helpful. This park also has a golf course. We would probably stay here again if passing through. I would have rated this park higher if the campground had been spread over a greater area, the back-in sites were easier to back into and the park accepted reservations. The rate was for a 30 amp service hookup.

This park has easy on/off access to I-20. Park has gravel roads and pull thrus, but no shade whatsoever. The sites are extremely narrow but long. The electrical and water connections are located in the middle of the site which could make it difficult to put out multiple slides for big rigs. The park was clean and the staff helpful. This is a good campground to spend the night while traveling on I-20. You can select a site without cable TV which makes the nightly rate a little cheaper. Would stay at this park again while traveling on I-20.

Campground has very wide sites with a lot of large, mature shade trees. The pull thrus are grass; however, there appears to be a rock base under the grass. Campground is very clean and neat; a beautiful mountain stream runs along the back of the campground. There is some traffic noise from the highway especially at the pull thru sites, but the traffic dies down at night and did not disturb us. There are a number of seasonal campers in the park. Everyone was friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay at this campground again.

The sites at this park are very large, shaded and well spaced. A number of the rv sites were sloped especially around the lake; pads could have been leveled better and had more gravel base. Lots to do at this park for kids. The park was well maintained, clean and quiet. This is a good centrally located park to visit a number of the NASCAR garages, museums, etc. We would definitely stay here again.

We stayed in one of the premium sites along the creek. This gives you more space behind your campsite since another site is not behind you. This is a typical commercial campground with relative small sites; pads are made from crushed rock; and are pretty level. There are trees and grass at each site. The park is quiet. I also talked with several campers who had tried other parks in the area and they said that this was the quietest park in the area. The trolley runs through the park to pickup campers, but it only runs to the central station. You then have to catch another trolley and pay again to go to any other attraction in Pigeon Forge. I would have rated this park higher if the sites had been larger. We would probably stay here again if we wanted to visit Pigeon Forge. If we wanted to visit the National Park only we would probably camp somewhere else possibly in Towsend.

This is one of the nicest state parks we have camped in. The sites are spacious, shaded and equipped with tables, fire rings, cable TV besides water and electricity. The campground area is gated and requires a pass code to enter. It is very quiet and peaceful. The rv pads are crushed rock and relatively level; most have tent pads also. The pull thrus for big rigs are located on a slight hill. There was evidence that on at least one of the pull thrus, large rv's had scraped the bottom of their rigs when driving up into the pull thru. There are approximately 8 back-in sites that are designated for rv's over 25 feet. Some of these sites may be difficult for newbies to get into as backing around trees is required. If you have a big rig, a reservation is probably necessary especially on weekends! There is a lot to do at the park including fishing, hiking, tennis and swimming in the lake. There's also a lodge and restaurant at the park. We would definitely stay at this park again.

This is a nice campground just off I-20. Most of the RV pads are concrete and pretty level, although a few had deteriorated somewhat. They are typically spaced for a commercial park with each pull through separated by a wooden privacy fence; there are no trees on the pull through sites. Sites also have concrete patio pads. The camp has Wi-Fi, but it has a weak signal and I could not connect while inside the RV. It is evident that the owners have worked hard to upgrade the park by adding nice landscaping, what looks to be a new pool, several camp buildings available for guests to use and new RV pads. It also has a desktop computer with internet access for those who don't have laptops as well as free washers and dryers. The park is relatively quiet except for the background noise from the interstate which cannot be seen from the campground. The camp operators are friendly and helpful. I would have rated this park higher, but I prefer more space between sites and some shade. We would definitely stay here again.

This is a small campground which is part of a truck stop. The campground and truck stop are separated by about a block. The campground is conveniently located just off the interstate, there is some freeway noise, but it was not bothersome to us. There is also a railroad track about 400 yards behind the campground. There were a number of trains which passed by during the night. If you are a light sleeper, you would probably be disturbed. There are trees in the campground; however, it appears that most of these sites are being used by long term residents. There was no pool or any other activity for the kids. Pull thrus were concrete pads, with a separate concrete pad and a picnic table at each site. The sites were very close together. The campground area was clean and some landscaping was present at the pull thru sites. There was no attendant in the office the entire time we were at the campground. However, when we called to check on availability of sites, the lady answering the phone was helpful and courteous. Overall, this campground is okay for an overnight stay; we might stay there again if passing through the area but would not go out of our way just to stay at this campground.

This park is very large (over 2,000 acres) and consists of several units and a trailway connecting the two units. The birch creek unit has overnight camping for rvs and tent camping while the Nails Creek unit is a day use only facility. All rv sites have water and electricity and the majority of the rv sites are well shaded and spaced. There are no pull thru sites and none have sewer hookups, although dump stations are conveniently located on each camping loop. The roads are all asphalt and in good condition, although a little tree trimming on some of the roads would be helpful. Some of the campsites have views of Lake Somerville and a few (less than 15) are located where boats could be pulled up on shore within several hundred yards of the campsite. About 15% of the sites have been updated to include new asphalt pads and concrete walks, fire rings, etc. All sites have asphalt pads, fire rings and picnic tables; however, not all picnic tables have covers. In general, this park is good for relaxing, hiking and fishing and is generally very quite except on holiday weekends when it is usually full. We have been to this park a number of times and will definitely go back.

This park is located on Lake Belton and is convenient to both Belton and Temple. It is quiet with most sites being shaded; however, there are a few sites that are open and they could get warm during the summer. The park is usually full on weekends, so make reservations in advance especially in the summer. The asphalt roads could stand some maintenance but overall not bad. The sites are well spaced with picnic tables, fire rings and charcoal grills at each site. The camp hosts were very helpful and friendly. Wal-Mart Supercenter which has diesel is only a several miles away and there are places to shop and eat nearby in Belton and Temple. The park has a boat launch, a laundry room and a group shelter that is air conditioned. We have stayed in this park several times and love it and will definitely stay there again.

This is a great park for those who want to hike or bicycle or have a safe place for their kids to ride and play. It is quiet, but there is some road noise from a main highway about 2 miles away, but nothing objectionable. Some of the sites were a little closer together than you find in most state parks. While this park is listed as Big Rig friendly, I am guessing that about 30% of the sites would not accommodate rigs in excess of 37 feet. The park staff was friendly and helpful. The park is connected by a beautiful winding and hilly road to Bastrop State Park about 12 miles away. This park road is narrow with blind curves and low overhead clearance, so fifth wheelers and motorhomes beware. Overall, we had an enjoyable experience and we will definitely return again.
