Park is nicely located, close to I-40 yet convenient to local interest such as Smoky Mountains, Cherokee, Blue Ridge Parkway, etc. Staff, laundry and bath house could not be better. Site size is adequate, but still compact as with most commercial parks. Hookups are good, but my motorhome’s sewer is in the rear and the site’s sewer was at midpoint. I had to move up (or use a hose extension) after a couple of days to dump. Sites and access roads are gravel with grass between sites. My main complaint is the sites are short and you have to park your tow vehicle or toad parallel to the road. This make the access roads narrow thus backing into or pulling out of your site can be challenging. I was parked in back by the creek and found no road or other annoying noises. In a nutshell, this was better than the others I saw in my travels around the area and I would certainly stay here again.
What a gem of a place. Granted it’s not a diamond, but it is nice little sapphire. There are six gravel and level pull-thru sites with an ample grassy area between you and your neighbor. Three cabins are also available. The owners are on site and very pleasant and helpful. They take pride in the appearance and the place is as good as it could be. Wi-Fi is now throughout the park and I found it to be much better than most. Hookups are more than adequate. The sourpuss that made the previous post must have been nagged by his wife and didn’t have a dog to kick. Highway and road to the trash station do produce some noise, but I found it to be a minor annoyance that went away after dark. No cable and many trees so you have to do without TV. If you are a fly fisherman (I’m not) this area apparently is a mecca for that endeavor. If I’m ever back in this area I would love to stay again.
If you travel with a dog, cat or goldfish this is not the place for you. They have a no pet policy. If you want cable TV find another park. If Wi-Fi is important make another selection. If AT&T phone service is important go somewhere else. If you want to be close to a Lake Tahoe waterfront then this is the place for you. There is a beach with a beach side snack bar with other amenities. Sites are roomy and nearly level. The hookups are as good as they get. Your site is an asphalt pad in a pine forest. Not much ground cover, just dirt, pine needles, and mulch. With the asphalt pad you don’t track it into your RV. It’s not a big park, but convenient and well maintained. Note showers are $2.00 for 4 minutes so bring plenty of deodorant or plan to swim a lot if you’re tenting. In summary, great place.
From what I saw in my explorations this is by far the best in the area. Level gravel sites, many pull-throughs, with paved roads. Sites are close together but enough room to put out the awning and enjoy your picnic table. No trees or other buffer, thus there is no privacy. A little difficult to see from the road so be on the ball when getting close; look for the Mexican restaurant. Hookups are the best, easy to get to and very convenient. Bath and laundry are up to date and well kept, although I don’t know why you need code to unlock. Wi-Fi is better than most, the same goes for the cable.
Mostly long-tern presidents, yet park is clean and well maintained. Location convenient to downtown and beaches. Gravel sites are level and mine was wide enough to park a toad on the side, but then cramped. Hookups accessible although shared with another site and location made them a little difficult. Nice heated pool and spa. Wi-Fi and cable were OK, but nothing to brag about. Laundry and bathrooms are clean and serviced. In summary, better than the other places I saw while exploring yet nothing remarkable.
Good overnight park. Nothing to brag about but easy in and easy out. Sites are large, but no pull-thrus for larger rigs. My class A 33 footer with a toad didn't have to unhook. Roads and sites are gravel and level. Electric, water and sewer connections are convenient. Close to the interstate and a RR, but I did not find the noise level irritating. Host people were very cooperative and friendly. Unless you have satellite there is no TV. Wi-Fi was weak or less. In summary, you’re in the middle of a desert, so what do you expect.
This place is what it is. Convenient to the interstate with gravel roads, good size and level sites. Hookups are well located and easy access. Mine did have muddy area which I promptly tracked into the coach. No office, you just leave your money in an envelope. Host guy did come by and give a friendly welcome and necessary advice. Easy in and easy out. Otherwise nothing to brag about. No patio pad or picnic table. I could not get the Wi-Fi to work, had to go to my AT&T hotspot. There is a RV center next door, didn’t go there so I have no info as to what it has or does. For a one night stop I would return.
Great state park setting. Nice level and tree shaded sites with good access. Being there in early April it was very sparsely occupied. Even though there wasn’t much competition you had to get in line to do laundry with the free washers and dryers. Apparently the locals find the fishing excellent, but as a Floridian I would advise you to steer clear of the alligators. Wi-Fi is filtered by the State which is annoying. Be sure to have all your provisions before coming here as the nearest store is a long, long way away. We did pick up some fresh peeled crawfish at Blanchard’s Seafood which is only about 10 miles away. Now if that sounds far, its only halfway to the store! This place is so remote my GPS didn’t know where it was (I’m serious about that). If I’m ever on the run from the law, or an ex-wife, I will definitely come back here.
This is not the worst in the world but it is trying. The roads not impassable but are rough and pot-holed. My electrical box was a thing to behold and fear. You are almost on the shoulder of the interstate and you think the 18 wheelers are coming through the window. Two good points, it has pull-through sites if you are done driving for the day and need a place to stop. Secondly, it’s close to Campingworld.
Price reflects Passport America discount. Used this park for an overnight near the interstate. Place was exceptional for that purpose. All hookups plus cable TV. Wi-Fi was good, but we were near office so I don't know if it was true throughout park. A lot of permanents, but not a detriment if you are staying a short time. Sites were level, but not spacious. Many pull-throughs making an overnight easy. Would definitely stay here again.
Great place for either overnight or as a destination. As for lack of privacy in previous posts, true you can forget about nude sunbathing, but these sites are better than most. Level for the most part and many are shaded. We use it for an overnight right off the interstate and it worked out very well for that purpose. Large 50 meter pool adjacent that cost campers $2 looked great. This is a place I would go out of my way to stay again.
Nice state park, rustic setting, attentive staff. Good access roads with relatively level sites. Only a very few full hookup sites with rest having electric only. Sewer hookup risers are about a foot off the ground making dumping difficult. Water pressure low and no Wi-Fi except for sites close to office. In mid-April park was sparsely occupied, but with water park within walking distance park will probably be packed in summer. From our door to Smithsonian exit of the Metro was 90 minutes, doubt you can do better from anywhere.
This park is new or recently redone. For state parks, this is the best of the best. Roads are good to and in the park. Laurel Ridge area is for large rigs. Sites are gravel and level, but not many of them. We were here in early April and there was only one other site occupied. Bathhouses were the best. No laundry facilities so if your neighbor is wearing dirty clothes you know why. The main attraction is the dump station. Easy access in either direction. This one is by far the best I've ever used.
Interesting place. We happened to be here during Spring break and the place was packed. Kids on bikes in packs like mini Hells Angels. No problems, just had to keep an eye out walking and driving. Sites are arranged with little planning and very jumbled; otherwise, level with a little compensation. We were next to a stream had ducks foraging. Restrooms were adequate, but nothing more. Would stay here again only at a less crowed time.
Great location to Gulf. Sites are paved pull-throughs, but out in the open. Nothing much to do (other than fish and sun) here in Grand Isle, but if that's what you're looking for this is the place for you. Lots of weekend/summer homes in the area so summertime may be more active. Would have given a 10 if sites were shaded and more secluded.
New to RVing so consider my opinion accordingly. Nice area, but open and no privacy. There were many permanent residents. They have their own bar on the premises. $2 beers and wine if you can find the bartender though the smoke. OK for overnight off I-75, otherwise look for something better. Can't figure out what I got for the $3 "Resort Fee".
Stayed here because it was convenient to New Orleans but had state park pricing. Paved roads and sites. Well maintained park with clean bathhouse . Sites are close together and open. Don’t know about summertime as camping area is surrounded by water, making mosquitoes probable. Would definitely stay here again.
