We headed north way too early this year and have found that due to the cold weather, very few campgrounds were open yet. This one allowed us to camp here with 30amp electric and dump at site but water not yet turned on. They did allow us to fill our water tank at a site within the park before setting up. They offer fuel at a discount of $.03 off per litre.
This campground is about 3/10 mile north of I-80 and was a quiet place to stay. It is all gravel, so nothing fancy. But to have all the hookups for $17/night was very good for sightseeing to the BLM wild horse/burro agency north of here, and to Cabela's and the Grand Platte River Road Archway about 16 miles east, it was a great location.
We stayed here a couple of years ago and came back for an overnight stay on our way to Lake City. Unfortunately this time, our stay is less pleasant than last time due to uncontolled barking dogs in the back corner by their clubhouse. Wi-Fi has been unreliable and Verizon cell phone is also not too good here. I hate to downgrade an RV park based on the above because it is an otherwise nice park.
This campground is pretty rundown and uncared for, but for $10 a night with Passport America it served the purpose of an overnight stay. Another problem is that trucks miss the I-10 eastbound entrance ramp and then have to turn around in the campground to get back to the on ramp.
This was a great campground for an overnight stay with full hookups for only $10 with Passport America discount. The sites are long pull-through sites although they are a bit narrow with 4 slides out. Very nice landscaping around the park and we would definitely stay there again.
Very friendly owners and very knowledgeable of the area with suggestions for some nice drives. Sites are level and shaded but somewhat unique in that they are parked one rig behind another in a row...kind of like parallel parking. Sewer hookup on driver side, but water and electric on passenger side.
The pull through sites were okay, but not what I would really call big rig accessible. We have a 40' m/h towing a Ford F150 p/u and found the sites short and narrow. Also, some of the electrical hookups were open on one side, all 4 prongs hot and what we would consider sloppy electrical work.
This state park is recovering from Hurricane Katrina. Sites are unlevel pavement, but not that bad and not many trees so could be bad in the heat. When we checked in their computer system was down, and the staff was extremely slow in checking people in...they claimed they were faster than computers, but I question that. There seemed to be several staff in the office doing nothing while we waited in line to check in with only one employee checking in campers.
This campground has only been open for a couple of months. There's a FEMA type campground just east of this campground. With taxes we paid $26.75 for 1 night camping. We went into the casino and signed up for a card which gave each of us $25 gambling money on a card for being new to their club. We also received a free buffet diner valued at $17.95 each. The sites are concrete and level and can probably fit a 45' motorhome (not all sites, but the one we're in even though we're only a 40' m/h). They have picnic tables and barbecue stands and garbage at each site. A thumbs up for drawing tourists back into an area heavily hit by storm damage!
This is an older park with narrow roads and uneven tight spaces. We only had 30amp hookup and don't know if there were 50amp spaces available. They have entertainment 3 nights a week, but the drawback is that it is loud and continued until 12:30am.
