This is not an RV park but a seedy, old mobile home park in desperate condition with ancient mobile homes in desperate condition. It has recently been purchased, and the new manager is making improvements as fast as possible, but he has a very long way to go. Very nice, helpful manager. They have one site at the very front of the park, but getting into it was just too iffy for our big rig. We appreciated the offer to clean up another site where large equipment was parked, but the park is just not ready for RVers so we did not stay.
Lovely lake and nice park. The sites in B are dirt with 30 amp and water. Most sites have shade. The dump site requires care for big rigs. Watch for low limbs at the pull-throughs. The staff is friendly and helpful. There is a water park and a variety of rental bikes, plus lake activities. This is our second stay, and we will return again.
Considering that you get nothing but hookups, $15 would be a reasonable price to stay here. It is the only park in town. Many sites in lot 3 are very short. Big rigs will have better space in 1 or 2 (the lawn). We parked in 4 because of an event taking place on the lawn. The sites in lot 4 are small and difficult to park a 38' RV. The whole fairground is on about a 2% grade, so it requires significant leveling. The park host is friendly but incredibly persistent with his interference and criticism. He insisted we park in a space far too narrow until we refused to. Then he tried to micro-manage every step of our set-up despite clear requests to stop. Just be prepared. On our next Yosemite visit, we will not stay here.
Went to Fresno as a stop on the way to Yosemite and Kings Canyon. We enjoyed this park so much that we returned for a quiet week's stay. This is the only actual RV park in Fresno. New managers are in the process of making improvements, but the park is very nice already. Originally a mobile home park, it has been an RV park for many years. Many fulltime residents, and some of the coaches are older, but the park has a clean and neat look. Trees are trimmed well. Overnighters stay in neat, very spacious sites with mature trees and a grassy space beside the concrete pads. Wide roads in good condition made for easy in and out for our 38' rig. About 25 channels on the cable. Rate is based on a week's stay. Daily rate is $35 and worth it. Friendly management, residents and staff made our stay very enjoyable. We will return when in the area.
Although it is off Highway 101, there is little road noise. The sites are private and spacious, level asphalt pads with grass, picnic table and fire ring. We had plenty of room for our 38' 5'er. Nice shrubbery and trees between sites. We enjoyed our visit very much. We will gladly return.
Stayed 2 nights here. Located outside town so it's very quiet. Sites have very large rocks where coach sits and smaller in patio area. Beautiful views. Very nice owner in the office, but they don't open before 10:00 a.m. Everything about the park is just really nice and clean. The access roads are a bit of a roller coaster ride, typical Arizona. Rate is Passport America.
We enjoyed our short stay in this small, adult park. Like most parks in Q, many seasonal residents in neat park models, and they're nice folks. New owner a year or so ago. Manager friendly and very helpful. All overnight sites are gravel. Excellent roads. Easy in/out. Activity center has TV and pool table and coffee and donuts in the a.m. Rate is Passport America. Will definitely return when in the area.
This park is about 50/50 for us. The park itself is very nice. Very quiet. Good roads. Nice folks, good management. 30 amp works well, water pressure is good. We found an area with lovely grass. Sites backing up to the ponds are dirt and gravel. Nice pool area. Many large trees and some newer plantings. Children's play areas are fenced, with swingsets and sand, and plenty to do in the family center. Weekend meals served at the family center are good (pancakes need work). WiFi available at the Adult center (>18 years). Very nice park except for the dairy across the street to the north. When the wind is right, the air smells and tastes like manure. Doesn't bother hubby, but I have to leave the park at those times. Very inconvenient. We asked a nice couple about the flies we'd heard about. They said that it is "impossible" to be outside in summer, and last year it took 3 weeks to rid their their coach of the flies after they left.
Pluses: Beautiful, well-maintained Corps of Engineers park on beautiful lake. 124 pretty level concrete, spacious sites. Half of the sites are treed, half are sunny. Plenty of space for satellite dish. Nice covered picnic pads and crushed rock patios. Lake view from most sites, and many are right on the lake. Clean restrooms with new fixtures. 50 amp electricity works well. Half of the sites are reservable online, but there has always been room available. Friendly staff with one notable exception: rude, with a huge, private rule book and no customer service ethic.
We made reservations for our week out from Thousand Trails Kenisee Lakes. We drove through the park the day before to make sure we could get our big rig in. After our drive through, we canceled. All the lake front sites are taken; those that aren't taken by cabins are old, permanent residents, some stacked three-deep from the lake. The pull throughs have common utilities and are a bit too snug for big rigs if both have slides. The lake is lovely; the "spa" is large and clean with an indoor pool. They have 20 amp and 30 amp ($2 extra). On the whole, not a bad park, but it just has an overall run-down appearance that was not appealing.
Lovely park with nice roads and easy access, including to the dump station. Beautiful area, sites are in good condition. The only drawback is having to fill the water tank and no sewer. There is a long bike path and hiking paths, and a beautiful lodge built by the CCC in the 1930's. The Illinois River runs past it, across the road.
This is a very nice park. Friendly staff. Very pretty. Right next to the Meramec River, but you can't actually see it from the sites. Nice, wide sites easy to back into, even for our big rig. There are no signs to indicate where hookups are until you finally get to that area, which is at the very end of the road, so follow the tent signs. The approach is interesting, but typical for the Ozarks, down to a valley over very big hills. Big rigs have to dodge low overhanging tree limbs. If you need a breeze to stay cool in hot weather, you won't find one in this valley.
This is our first visit to Horseshoe Lakes. The staff is very friendly and helpful, but the condition of the park is very disappointing for a Thousand Trails Preserve. There are several long-term spaces that are pretty junky. While there are some big rigs here, we don't consider it a good place for our 38' fifth wheel. The roads are mostly gravel, narrow, and very uneven with tight turns. Some areas are only dirt - muddy in the rain. Most of the sites are narrow "thread-the-needle" opportunities that drop off into gullies immediately on both sides. Many are too short for a big rig. Underbrush is very close and the weeds and "grass" are unkempt. We stayed two nights but only because of inclement weather. We will not return.
Lake Medina Thousand Trails has much going for it. Pluses are: Good roads, level gravel sites with spacious grassy areas. Most sites are woodsy. One area is within view of the lake with about 15-20 sites right on the lake. Water level is erratic, but when it's up, it's a beautiful turquoise. Nice family activity center with small store, cafe, playground, mini-golf, many games, and plenty to do. Has a beautiful pool area. Mostly 30-amp sites, the 50-amp sites have a $3/day surcharge. Some sites are leased or have on-site storage, but there are still many sites to choose from. Very nice, large lakeside tent area. Drawbacks: Deer populate the park unrestricted, and rains bring the smell of deer pooh, although many folks I've met have never noticed it. Management needs to work harder at keeping overhead limbs and underbrush cut back. Laundry and workout room are clean but not conveniently located. Apart from the deer having to dodge the tree limbs, we like Medina and will be back.
One of our favorite Thousand Trails Preserves. Sites are well-spaced and grassy with pads that are gravel and level with easy access. Lots of trees around so you can choose mostly sunny to heavily shaded. The rate reflects our membership, but they have recently opened a few sites for non-members that are reported to be $38 per night. 50-amp sites have a $3/night surcharge. Most sites are 30-amp. This preserve is always well-maintained. The roads are pretty good. There is a family activity center with a huge pool, a small store, and a cafe that is open on some in the week and all weekend. An adult center has a smaller pool and a comfortable interior space for small groups. The attached laundry is clean and has about 4 washers and dryers. There is also a workout room and chapel. Activities are weekend oriented, but there are things to do during the week and areas for tennis, pickle ball, horse shoes, ping pong, etc. We haven't used the bath houses.
Rate reflects monthly winter rate. Electric service rate was reasonable. This is a small park along the Nueces River outside Crystal City. The park was nearly full all winter. Only a few hardy souls stay here in the summer heat. The park road is good and sites are well-spaced. The activity center is large with a huge patio. It is well-kept, as are the attached laundry, bathroom/showers, and workout room, which has several machines and a TV. Activities were resident-lead, with new things to do each week. The park is very nicely maintained. The staff is friendly and helpful, and I can't say enough about the workcampers and maintenance staff. They do a great job. Most of the sites are on the river and fish were caught almost daily. The pond was down due to drought but the winter rains helped a bit. There is a very large, fenced, leash-free area for dogs.
Holiday is a lovely, well-tended Corps of Engineers park. Has level roads and pads. We stayed right on the lake in pull-through site 72. March is a windy month, so when it wasn't windy, it was delightful. Lake access is terrific, and there are many sites on the lake. We did not use the bath house. The dump station next to the entrance is closed. The other dump station has good access even for a big rig. Very nice staff and volunteers. Well-run park. GPS Users Alert: Our GPS gave us incorrect directions and sent us to Stevens Drive, but when we called the park office, the manager knew how to get us turned around. Don't turn at Stevens Drive, and don't take Tiger Trail. If you follow a GPS, be sure it leads you to Pearl Ranch Road, which is the same as S. Lakeview Drive on Google maps.
