Very noisy from Interstate I69 right next to it. The gravel road to sites is full of dips and small holes and needs to be graded. Tight turn at the end to swing around to get to the pull-throughs. We had a hard time getting into the "pull-through" site and had to go back up front to turn around, had to unhook and back up and maneuver with great difficulty to get turned. Not at all big coach friendly for our 40' with toad; we would not stay here again unless we were desperate. This is the 2nd or 3rd time we have tried it and it gets worse. They are building more playground and similar amenities, likely catering to families for weekends. Looks like there are some permanent occupants as well. No one is in the office, ever although the trailer adjacent has a sign outside for site Manager. We arrived at 5:30 PM and they close at 5:00 PM so we followed self check in procedures. We expected someone to be in the office in the AM to get a receipt as their instructions promised but there was no one again, when we left at 11:00, just another note on the door that the person took their truck somewhere. It is not worth the price, $31.75 Good Sam rate. We have spent more comfortable nights at rest stops or Walmart. Sites are tight and not all hookups are on the same sides. They are planting trees beside the sites which will make it less accessible.

This has become a favorite place for us to stop en route when near I-80. Clean, quiet and very reasonable rate for Passport America. Everything from sites for tents to cottages to RV sites. Easy pull-through access. We were here twice in June en route. Very helpful at the front desk, steered us to a fantastic local restaurant in downtown. There are some restrictions with Passport America and varies on rates depending. We have a 40 ft RV and tow vehicle, and it was easy maneuvering here.

This RV park is not too far off I-80, but it takes 25 minutes to get there following 487 as suggested on their website. Very back there, away from the world. We discovered it traveling and stayed 2 nights, PA rate. Because it is so peaceful and beautiful, we felt restored and decided it was worth two nights to immerse in the peace. Obviously a destination for locals for weekends, etc. Sites are grass but very level. Gravel road is easy to maneuver. Spacious. Excellent water pressure. No wifi, no reception on our Verizon, and our satellite would not work because of the abundant trees/forest. Local TV channels came in. We disconnected from Internet and SISH for the brief stay and just absorbed the beauty of the setting. The restrooms are immaculate. I had laundry to do after more than a week on the road, and although there is only 1 washer & dryer, both were clean and worked well. If you want hustle and hub bub, this would not be for you, but for nature, spacious sites, and the wonder of quiet, it worked for us. We'd return again if traveling that way. It is new, and there are some seasonal residences but all classy. No junky trailers and no garbage. The place is a gem and a blessing to travelers despite being away from amenities--stores, restaurants, etc.

We stay here nearly every year traveling and the price goes up constantly without any noticeable improvements. Easy access off the interstate, close to shopping. Level sites with easy access, so it's worth the cost. Could be quieter now in the busy season. Utilities work well.

Clean lovely RV park. Good Sam rate. Many seasonals here and it appears to be a destination for weekends but all sites are well maintained and clean, not at all run down. Our gravel site was level and easy enough pull through. The place is gorgeous, woods all around. Quiet. The only downside is so many trees that the satellite dish could not get reception. The pool looked lovely although we did not use it. A small store on-site too. We only stayed one night en route and were glad to have found this in an area where nice spots for big rigs are few.

Just opened Dec 2012. We had the only paved pull through (owner is supposed to pave more sites), and the rate reflects a week at $125, daily rate is $30. They accept only check or cash. Tight entrance and exit from the country road for us. Tight turn inside for our 40+ft motorcoach and tow. We made it, but if this place fills up, might not work. Very quiet, solitary, out of the way on back country roads. Nothing is close by; US Post Office designates this as Foley, while Magnolia Farms would be closest. Our site was very level with easy hook up access. Other sites are all on grass, might be a problem with the rains as there were puddles all over even on asphalt road. Nice new clubhouse with code lock access. Wifi worked great. Beautiful new wood table and bench at each site; weather was not cooperative for use of those. Cordial owner and site manager. Come prepared for a solitary experience and a drive to Foley or Fairhope. A good place for someone who wants to just sit back.

Good Sam daily rate. Great park in the tall trees, felt like out in a forest but less than 1/2 mile from a major mall and all sorts of restaurants, stores close by, etc. Paved interior roads to solid gravel site; easy to level our motorcoach. Spaces are rather narrow but in off season worked fine. Quiet. Trash can at the site. Wi-fi worked well. Great water pressure. Helpful hosts. We were here off season and would stop here again. Easy access off US Hwy 45. Close to Natchez Trace center.

We have stayed here several times en route. The new owner (last year) is making improvements, filling in gravel spots, etc. Nice access off the highway, and the spaces are easy for our big 40+ foot motor home and tow car. It was freezing but they had just turned the water back on. We were only overnight but if in the area longer would stay here.

Last year this was the #1 rated RV park by Woodalls. The only improvements they could make would be concrete pads which would remain level and perhaps heating the pool so it could be used. Also better enforcement of these RVers with their numerous dogs. Though small, the owners walk them and do not pick up after their dogs, so there is dog waste in the grass. We found this by accident and have stayed 2 weeks. Roads are good gravel and the owner keeps them up, narrow but we made it guided in. Wi-Fi works good. Many snowbirds here, like us, and they return every year. We got so comfortable that we stayed 2 weeks; weekly rate is cheaper. One hour drive to New Orleans and shore towns all around. Nearby casino for those who like that. Easy shopping in Waveland and Gulfport. Activities abound mostly attended by the group who all seem to know each other from years here, all are friendly. Owners live next door but are seldom in the office. However, all it takes is a phone call. We would return here and if it were paved would rate a 10. I understand the monthly rate is cheaper, we took the weekly, which is cheaper than the daily. Compared to many of the dumps in the area that pass for RV parks, this is a jewel.

We were in the Memphis area and then waiting out the ice storms that were coming through. We have stayed here overnight before and spent five nights this time. Great highway access, wonderful level pull-through concrete pads. Laundry is clean. Easy drive to Memphis and surrounding sites; plenty of shopping very close. They seem to keep fairly full with people who are working in the area, but it is modern, neat, clean and safe. The Wi-Fi did not work for us.

For those who enjoy roughing it this might be the spot. Nothing was as expected from what we saw online. There is an additional charge for Wi-Fi which we did not pay, using our own broadband. I heard from others, it was not accessible at the sites. Although I indicated we did not need to be on the water, lakeshore, I did not expect to be stuck out in the boonies in the dirt with weeds all over and no grass, only a tiny bit of scattered gravel at our site. We had booked online for 4 days over July 4th so felt stuck here. No refunds. It is overpriced for what it is. There is no escort to your site. The staff at check in are amenable but not helpful with information about anything, they are focused on just wanting to process you in. The site map provided at check in is confusing and it took us several repeats along a very sharp twisting dirt access road, no pavement to these sites and terrible dust which made a mess of the tow car and motorhome. This is not at all big rig friendly. At the site when a car drove by, which happened a lot, the dust arose all over the sites. Standing outside you would be covered or gasp for air. We talked to other RVers who had the same bad experience; some left the same day, some stayed only one night and departed. One good thing, no potholes in the dirt roads. Finally we found our site but had to circle around again to access it and back in our 41 foot motorhome; we had requested a pull through. There is not a convenient area to unhook the tow car and with all the vehicles checking in they discourage unhooking at entry. Hooking up to the 50 amp, sewer and water was an experience in climbing through weeds. The site had a very slight sprinkling of gravel and we were able to be level but it was dirt and dusty. We also had more privacy and room at our sites than the sites we saw along the lake. However lake shore has grass and pavement. We were able to put out our slides and awnings. Satellite reception was poor, we were across that access road with tall trees along it. We never could access local TV channels through our DISH. This is obviously for families: many children and adults out on bicycles on the road which also makes it difficult arriving and leaving. Our sites out away from the lakeshore, were too far to walk to the camp store or the pool in the dust and the heat, and parking there is very limited to none. We were told there was a free shuttle to the ferry dock in town. We'd purchased tickets for that on arrival but had to drive to town anyway because there was no parking at the shuttle pick up site which was too far from our site. They finally began to water the road early evening to settle the dust, but that was too little too late. We would not stay here again. I think they get many one time RVers who stop here unaware. The people we talked to agreed they would never return.

Easy access not far from the freeway. All paved sites and roads to the RV area. Excellent pull through for big (41 ft.) motorhomes like ours. We did not have to unhook our toad which we appreciated because we were staying only one night. Level sites and good power 50 amp and water. There is a dump at the entrance, no sewer site hookups. Very quiet and peaceful. The pool is up in the main casino but they provide a guest card. This is a gem for travelers and it appeared many were staying there for several nights.

We stayed several days here with an RV Rally group and the sites were very close but we expect that at rallies. All the power and water hookups worked very well. We had 50 amp which we used because it was the awful heat wave during our stay, no problems ever with the power and heavy use. They have added many new sites for gatherings. The sites are in the grass/ground but fairly level. Main roads are paved but some dirt access to sites. Easy access and gate entrance from Hwy 31 and 15. Very convenient for the area and public camping available except when they have a fair. We'd stay there again.

Very easy access off and back on to I-80. It's close to the freeway and yet very quiet. We heard not a sound of traffic. This is a wonderful stopping place with gravel and level pull though sites for our RV. Friendly staff who escorted us to our site. We would stay here again, absolutely.

We arrived late and had not checked reviews. Poor access to the overnight site assigned. We asked for power and sewer and got neither in a gravel site. Gravel and dirt narrow road winding to end of the sites is difficult for big rig. Site was right next to the highway. The power box was blown and we could not use, too dangerous. Dogs were loose in the road and the sites. There was no sewer hookup. We left. Would never return there.

Park is very close to the battlefield and a tour van picks guests up from the RV site. Rate is cheap enough. Laundry is clean. BUT big rig sites are not level, and it is impossible to level despite using blocks. We listed sideways our 3 nights here. The big rig sites are set to get satellite TV reception which worked with our DISH. But there is no cable TV reception nor accessible local channels because of all the trees. We called ahead and were promised a site that was not available upon our arrival. They claim big rig access but the staff assigns smaller trailers and smaller motor homes into these few pull through sites. Sites need improvement and lots of gravel fill. It is pet friendly, but they do not enforce picking up dog waste because there was a pile of dog waste at the fire pit at our site. The site also had cigarette butts around, so it had not been cleaned. On future trips to this area, we would not stay here. The park is quiet enough despite the many live ins. Lots of information about the local area is available at the camp store.

The owners of this delightful, clean, quiet, very nice RV park could give lessons in what to do to many others who set up RV sites. About the only thing they do not have is a paved access road, but the gravel is good and the sites are nearly all level. It is gorgeous and peaceful, and overlooks their private lake which has chairs to sit and enjoy the water or one can fish. We found this place by checking this RV Park reviews website and were very happy to stay here. It will be a stop for us any future trips through this area. It appears to be a destination for area locals who keep their trailers here, but we were able to get a wonderful site overnight for our big rig. They have a great website and or easily take phone reservations. Highly recommended, but it is small so call ahead. I suspect they fill up often.

We found this place by accident across from an RV park that was terrible. It was late, 9:00PM, but when we called they said they had a site. They were welcoming and knew the trouble we'd had across the road. The place is very clean and quiet and the pull through site was a breeze. We were tempted to stay another day because we'd had a long day on the road. There are many retirees here, and everyone was very friendly. We will stop here again in a heartbeat when we are in this area. They have an amenable checkout of 2:00PM which is unheard of. We, however, were so tired from the journey we did not leave until noon. Very easy access.

Bargain price at $14.98 using our Passport America. It is a lovely, clean spacious RV park with lots of amenities for families, which do not interest us. Likely a destination site for locals. Level pull through site for our 41' motor home + tow car. Downside is that it is extremely noisy right alongside I 65 and entrance off Hwy 24. It appears that spaces across the lake are for long term RVers so overnighters get the interstate noise although there were construction workers trailers there too. Wonder why they don't plant trees or noise capture shrubs along their back fence to diminish freeway noise. We stopped only for overnight but would hate to stay longer because of the freeway noise even though I used ear plugs it is louder than a rest stop because the traffic roars continuously all night long. They charge an additional $2 for Wi-Fi which we did not need.

Others call it quirky, I thought we were smack dab in Deliverance. Many people live here in their trailers and sites and some of them appear questionable but are harmless evidently as we had no problems while there. We would leave most of the day and return in evening. The on site manager, is extremely helpful and watches over everything so it was safe despite the shady appearing surroundings including the trashy looking mobile home park on the hillside above. We stayed for a week while in the area because it was the only RV place we could find. Spaces are shady and it was difficult to get DISH reception in the woods however we could pick up some local channels. Spaces are mostly rickety and uneven but the jacks leveled it out. It is surprisingly quiet. Some people say they stay here for months on end. For us, it was OK. This area of North Carolina really should get on board and develop RV sites however it seems they prefer hotels. Birchwood takes only cash or checks and it is cheaper to stay for the week so we did so.

For some reason that we missed they are very proud of this place by the price they charge. We only wanted a night stop and should have saved the $$ and gone to Walmart. Very tight maneuvering by trees all over the sites. Would not recommend it for larger motorhomes.

After the dumpy tight RV parks we found in TN, this was a delight but we were on our way home and only stayed one night. Easy access and great sites. It was late in the year so not many folks around. Very clean and very accommodating. We would definitely stay here again.

Tight spaces and must unhook to get to the sites. Very difficult access even then although they claim to be big rig friendly. Hah! If Nashville needs anything it sure needs RV parks. This place has many full time/live in residents. Pets are allowed and dogs yip all the time and there is little enforcement of cleaning after them so it makes for an untenable walking around. It is noisy just off the main road. Would not recommend it unless no other choices. Evidently they keep full with other tourists so they do nothing to improve the park. Tents are pitched in the grass right outside your RV so you can expect anything at any hour. I had booked us here for 2 nights using the website and GS book. Will not do so again. Website looks way better than the park. They do offer connections via another shuttle to local attractions, Grand Old Opry for a high cost. It is really out of the way and in the Nashville traffic too inconvenient.

Spaces are extremely tight. Semi level, takes work with the automatic jacks. This is an old RV park better suited for RV trailers some of which appear to have permanent residence here. It is close to the Blue Ridge Parkway and just ok for a night. We stayed a couple and had to move the 2nd night to another spot which was even tighter for our rig because he had someone else booked into our site. I think it is an area destination park for RV trailers. Would not stay here again unless we had no choice.

The new owner is upgrading the sites with plenty of gravel and is keeping it open year round. We have stayed here before and were pleased to find it open. Sites are level and easy drive through. We have been here off seasons when it was not filled; it is easy access off I-55 on outskirts of Springfield. Although there were some construction type workers living there, all was quiet and it is not at all dumpy. We would stay here anytime we are going to or around Springfield. It may become a family busy site in the summer months with the playground and pool and field set ups. That is not of interest to us but so long as it remains quiet we like it.

Very level concrete pad sites. We were only here for an overnight and did not unhook and did not need to. When they say pull through it really is with lots of length and room. Wi-fi does not work easily, but that was not important as I have a Verizon broadband drive. Cable TV channels work well. Easily accessible access off I-55. Quiet even though there is a booming residential area nearby. Probably hot here in the summer as the trees are new and will not provide shade. We'd stay here again.

Yes it is out of the way, off the beaten path easy access off I-10; an easy toad commute to Mobile, Foley, and Pensacola. BUT it is very quiet and secure. It is an adult park only which as empty nester we prefer, there are no children running around & park rules are very strict and limiting on their visits. There is nothing here to entertain RV'ers but after the full days we spent out in the area attractions we did not miss that. Grass sites are level and there is plenty of space between rigs. Apparently people live here; we really never talked to a soul our 5 day stay; most visitors are out and about as we were. Either Wi-Fi was not working or it was not strong enough to pick up; used our Verizon broadband. The only draw back is that there is nothing close other than the truck stop/gas station off I-10. We would stay here again.

Their website photos make it look better than it is. We could get a pull thorghu for our 40' coach + toad so we booked it, and when we got here, I regretted. But here we are for 2 nights. Staff are very friendly and helpful but this is one we would not have found the access road if we'd not called ahead. It's a very old place, very tight spaces, few pull throughs, narrow lanes and apparently people live here, snow birds, too. I don"t understand the previous comments about a shopping center. There is a liquor store and McDonalds near along the road but no shopping center. We leave after our 2nd night which is already paid for, and I would not return here. This is like an old dumpy campsite with packed spaces. Not very flat, but our jacks leveled us out. It was quiet enough last night.

The best RV resort anywhere in the country at the price...$8 w/our Passport discount, Good Sam was only $15. Level concrete pads. Very clean and nice new place; trash pick up can at each site. Very helpful staff. A beautiful rec room with pool tables, TV's, etc. Would be a great place to travel with several others if there are spaces available. We were there for off season, and it was wonderful. Door to door shuttle to casino. Local Wal Mart, local restaurants, what more did we need. Local historic sites. We toured the area and up to Alexandria. Stayed 4 days because it was so nice to be in a quiet place and we really had no schedule. The casino is the most significant of the area attractions. But at the set up and prices this place is a 10 rating-about 24 miles from Alexandria, off Hwy 1 a back 2 lane road. Recommend it to all big rig RV'ers.

Adjacent to Graceland which was our destination we could walk to Graceland. RV park is easily accessible off a main street. Helpful office staff and many brochures of area activities available right there. Flat spaces. Adequate room to maneuver big 40 ft. motorhome. It was quiet and safe. Decent water pressure.

We stay here every trip to my home town near Pittsburgh; 5 times in 2011. Owner- hosts live onsite. It is safe and quiet and heavily inhabited with trailers and rigs of construction, gas, and pipeline workers and their families. There are really no amenities in the big field, other than basic hook ups, but still, they are the only game it the area. No rest rooms, no showers nor laundry services. The drive to the place makes you think you are landing back up a mountain to who knows where, but once at the top of the windy hill, it is all open.

A clean Casino park. It was filled as many came to work on the local nuclear plants. The desk clerk said they limited the number for live ins, but there were plenty. Good access for our rig. It was quiet compared to many other RV places in the area. We'd stop here again..we were touring the Vicksburg battleground and area..

Rustic and next to a Chevron diesel station but handy access right off I-49. No on-site manager. It is difficult to catch someone to check in and out. Many residents appear to be living there working and they have the spaces all around the outer edges of the park. It was OK for easy access to Natchitoches and activities. A bit pricey for what it was, but it was relatively quiet.

Spaces are tight, we're in a back in and I don't know how one gets a pull through which appear to be across the lake. We are parked alongside a fence adjacent to Frost Road which is very noisy with traffic at all hours: like being on an interstate. Obviously they cater to families of locals: the place is packed with them and all have yapping dogs and kids all over. Quiet time is not enforced; the first evening, Thursday the space down from us had a party till late hours. No onsite management at night evidently. Loud noisy trucks from the 5th wheels at all hours or night inside the park are annoying. Lack of cable TV at these rates shows they care not about travelers but want campers. As empty netters and retired RV'ers who travel, we would not choose this family friendly place again. It must be great for families: not my cup of tea at these rates. We booked 4 days to do things in the area, a mistake but we will live through it.
