We stayed for a couple of nights to check out our 5th wheel before heading out on a longer trip. It's hard to rate the campground as it seems half way between a campground and an RV resort, but without really being very good at either. Restrooms have stalls that are too small, old showers, and are too few for the number of people if the campground is at all full. For a camping experience, the campsites are too close together and there isn't much else to do except wander around some ponds. For those looking for resort amenities, you have to put up with campfire smoke coming from right next door, gravel sites, no good restaurants nearby, and contrived activities that seem very dated. It is also very expensive. If it had been half the cost, then it would be a good value, but at this price we've come to expect more. For camping, the state parks are a better deal and have a lot more space between campsites along with hiking and more outdoor activities. Satellite signal is very difficult to acquire. For an RV resort, better to head somewhere else to get your money's worth.
The rate is with a Texas state park pass so we did not have to pay the per person entrance fee. This park is on the Blanco River and you can walk into town, though it is a bit of a hike. Park is nice, but the spaces are a little closer together than many state parks so more of an RV park feeling than a state park so marked it down to a 9 from an otherwise 10. Restrooms were up to date and clean.
This was a surprisingly nice state park with very nicely spaced and roomy campsites. It is close to I-10 and train tracks so there is some low level noise, so marked down from what would otherwise have been a 10 rating. Very nice camp host who facilitated the check in process. We would stay here again if in the area.
For a state park, we were disappointed in how close together the sites were as we felt like we were in a commercial park. Not sure why others thought they were roomy. There is a nice, though small, dog beach area. Ranger apparently likes to sing and presented an evening program at the amphitheater which is fine if you like that kind of music, but since everything is really close, we had to listen to two hours of "entertainment" whether we wanted to or not. We would not return.
Another wonderful COE campground where some of the sites have water and electric though the ones by the lake do not have power. Good price with National Park Senior Pass, though we didn't understand why this COE is more than the others we have stayed in and usually pay $10. The sites are nicely separated, paved, and have good power and water. Lovely walking trails and good bass fishing in the lake if you like to fish. Restrooms were a bit dated but clean. Friendly hosts and ranger. We wish we could have stayed longer, and will return if in the area.
This was advertised as an Encore Resort, but it is certainly not a resort and is in deteriorating condition. Many long term residents who are allowed to break all the rules, including letting their dogs into the pool area. The restrooms were not properly cleaned with the same mop used to swab around the toilets, then clean the showers without any disinfectant. There are not a lot of choices in the area, so apparently they do not think they have to maintain any standards, but we found it disgusting and will not return.
This is a very nice park to visit the Paso Robles area and they even have coupons for free wine tastings. The rate was with a winter 30 percent off coupon we found on the internet. Without the coupon, the rate would have been over $75. Restrooms are clean, good laundry facilities, and room enough to walk the dog. The only downside, other than the rate, is that the some of the sites are arranged a little oddly, where you may have to share a picnic table area with your neighbor. Other sites are better so choose your site carefully. We would stay here again if in the area and if we could find another discount coupon.
We found this to be an excellent park for an overnight stopover with easy in and out. The sites are in the middle of an Orange grove and we were invited to pick any Oranges we wanted. Very nice laundry facilities, good dog walking areas around the perimeter among the Orange trees and a fenced off-leash area that was not huge but larger than many we found and it had been kept clean as well. We have already returned once and would definitely stop here again if in the area.
This campground had many long-term snow birds but some spots for overnight. One of the best stopover parks we encountered on our trip. When we called ahead to inquire about a vacancy, the manager did not want a credit card, just said they'd hold the site for us and they did. The sites are gravel, but are separated by Oleander shrubs that provide some privacy as well as a windbreak. Nice area to walk your dog behind the park into the BLM area.
We needed a place to stay on the west side of Phoenix and finally selected this one after some research. It was disappointing. The sites are really close together with narrow roads and had to park your vehicle along with your trailer/RV/Fifth wheel. The restrooms were adequate, but the Wi-Fi did not work and the office staff was of no help in addressing the issue. The pet areas are a joke especially if you have a larger dog. The other option is to walk down into the "wash" area which felt unsafe both from anyone being able to get down there and possible snakes and other critters in the brush along the sides. We would not stay here again.
An excellent park for visiting the Tucson area. This park re-opened this last year under new management and they were really trying to have great customer satisfaction and quickly addressed any concerns we had, which were minor such as a stopped up shower drain in the women's shower area. The whole park has had new gravel put down, which stopped the blowing sand when the winds came up. The dog park and walk area is better than most we find in private parks. There is a good restaurant on site, but not a lot of planned activities. That was fine with us, as we only stay for a couple weeks and prefer the lower cost without added "resort fees" for activities we don't use. We will definitely stay here again if we return to the area.
A wonderful Texas state park with nicely spaced campsites, some with paved slabs. There are lots of walking trails in the preserve area and down to the South Llano river. There is a bird sanctuary and blinds to observe the birds. Very friendly ranger who let us pick our own spot. We did not have any Verizon cell service here, the only negative. Rate is with the Texas state park pass so we did not have to pay the per person daily entrance fee.
What a fabulous find in the middle of Texas with friendly check-in couple at the entrance booth. Campsites nicely spaced with lots of room in between them, clean restrooms, paved slabs, electric and water, and a new dump station. If coming this way again, we would definitely stay here.
This campground was a very convenient stop-over on our way south in January. It was mid-week and hardly anyone was camped there so we had our choice of campsites. We noticed that if it had been full it would have been really crowded as the sites are close together. Lots of walking space for the dog, friendly ranger, good restrooms. We'd stay here again.
This was a convenient state park close to I20 and we stayed two nights during a rain storm. It has paved roads and campsites which was very nice given the heavy downpours. Lots of area to walk the dog, typical state park restrooms but they were clean, and nice hosts and rangers. There are large rocks around the campsites to keep vehicles off the grass areas. We didn't find these to be a problem but carry a flashlight if walking around at night, and be careful pulling around especially if you have a larger rig or not a lot of experience. We saw a "newbie" put his trailer over the water spigot as he didn't anticipate the turning radius when towing. He broke off the faucet which meant the rangers had to come turn off the water to our section of the campground and get the faucet fixed. They were very nice at keeping us informed and it wasn't an issue for us. Rate is with the Texas park pass so we did not have to pay the daily per person entrance fee. We would stay here again when coming through Texas.
We are not sure why this park gets such high reviews. It is true the manager is nice, there is a piece of concrete to park on but we barely fit. However it is not very picturesque, the rest of the site and roads are gravel (with dirt showing through) and unkempt grass that had someone else's dog waste. Much of the park has long-term residents who leave early for work and/or come in after dark and there is some road noise. There is an area to walk the dog, and the showers were clean and had nice hot water. We probably will not return.
This campground is right next to the Charlotte Motor Speedway and we stayed during a non-race week so it was almost empty in the transient area that is a large grass field. It would be really crowded during a race event. There is also a separate area for long term trailers. There are full hookups but no bathrooms or showers available. It was fairly noisy from the adjacent roads, but a convenient stop over if traveling through or visiting the race shops in the area.
I only have good things to say about this campground. Clean, neat, good places to walk the dog, nice little restaurant with good prices, escort to site. Sites have some grass separation from each other, and good cable channels. It's a great stopping point going or coming from New Brunswick.
You can find some privacy by selecting your site carefully, but the campsites with electric/water are pretty close together and crowded during weekends. Programs put on by the park rangers were very enjoyable. Nearby town has lots of restaurants and a market for supplies along with a good bakery. Rate is with National Park pass and a 10% discount for spending over 7 days in the park.
Some open and some sites among some trees, but not enough to make campsites private. Quite busy though not completely full this time of year. Restrooms were adequate. Nice beach down the road that you could walk to if you wanted a short hike, otherwise you can drive to it. Near towns with good seafood restaurants or markets to purchase fresh lobster and fish to cook yourself. Rate was with a National park pass so we didn't have to pay extra entrance fees. Well worth it if you are staying a number of nights or visiting several of the Canadian National Parks.
We did not find this campground as enjoyable as others. The owner, for some reason, wouldn't let us take the vacant spot that overlooked the ocean as it was apparently for motorhomes. We have a 5th wheel, that my husband could easily have put in there. We were willing to pay extra for the site with the view as my husband had pulled a muscle in his back and wasn't comfortable walking very far. Instead the owner told us to go take a pull through that did not have a view. We also noticed that the restroom trash cans were full and hadn't been emptied in what looked like several days. On the plus side, there were nice walking trails but my husband couldn't walk that far so he didn't get to enjoy the views. We found the other campers to be much friendlier than the owner. We'd been considering staying several days, but left the next morning.
Very nicely maintained park, with good pull through sites. Showers are individual and were cleaned regularly. Good restaurant on site. We used it as a stopover on our way north, and while about 5 miles from the interstate, it was worth the drive. We'd stop here again.
This campground is located across the street from Santa's Village amusement park so it attracts a lot of families with small children. For those families, this would probably be a 10 as it is neat with clean restrooms and nice looking swimming pools. Unfortunately we didn't realize this when we pulled in for a one night stopover. While we do like children, there were just a lot of them, many tired from a long day and some without adequate parental supervision, so a lot of crying, shouting, and other commotion well into the evening. So if you have small children and want a great place to visit the amusement park, this campground is for you. If you want a peaceful evening, then suggest looking elsewhere.
This was a one night stopover for us on our way to Maine. It was middle of the week and raining, so the campground was not very crowded. There are nice trails around several ponds where we could walk the dog.
I'd describe this campground as adequate for an overnight stop. We explicitly asked about the wifi when we called ahead as we needed to do some work on the internet, and they'd assured us it was all fixed and good. It worked intermittently and was so slow that websites kept timing out. There are lots of mosquitoes as well, so we spent the evening in the trailer. We would probably not return.
Campground is very convenient to Digby and we were here a little late in the year so it wasn't full. If full, it would probably seem quite crowded with the spaces on top of each other. That being said, it was a nice stop, with friendly owners, and suited us well for exploring the local area. Wonderful scallops can be purchased in town, and a good farmer's market on the weekends. Nice area to walk the dog, too.
We enjoyed this campground very much, and chose to pay for 2 adjoining campsites in an area by themselves overlooking the ocean so we could enjoy the solitude. We thought it was well worth the cost given the beauty of the area. The rate for one campsite would be half the amount we listed. The owners are very friendly, and even brought us the freshest mussels we'd ever had for dinner one night. Restrooms are older, but meticulously cleaned. Spaces may be a little close together, depending on which ones you get. We'd definitely return here if we travel to Nova Scotia again.
Very clean park that was an excellent stop over off I-10, though I wouldn't describe it as a resort. Each space has a concrete pad and a grass area. Big field available to walk your dog. Laundry room was good, but busy on a Saturday with some of the full timer's doing their laundry as well. Gave us a nice continental-type breakfast in the morning which saved us time getting underway. Will definitely stay here again on our next trip across I-10.
Nice little park that was good for a one night stopover. A couple miles off I-81 so no road noise. Nothing fancy and there are a number of full timers, but everyone was friendly. Restrooms are older, but had been well cared for and were clean. We'd stop here again.
Typical KOA, but convenient stop over from I-40. Far enough from interstate that we did not hear road noise. Not very crowded this time of year and person in registration office said they put people in every other space so as not to crowd you when they weren't full. Laundry room was adequate, showers and restrooms clean. We were here when a big thunderstorm came through and I'm not sure the wood constructed bath house area would have been sufficient if real tornadoes had passed through. Fortunately, it was mostly rain and not a lot of wind.
From the other reviews we thought we'd really like this park, but found the campsites crowded together. We have a 20 foot travel trailer with a small slide out, and it was right on the edge of the campsite next door. Other sections of the campground may be better but it was winter and they weren't open. Even in winter, was crowded on a weekend. They don't have doggie bags like parks in some of the other states we've visited, and it showed with a lot more dog waste that had not been picked up. We'd planned to stay longer, but moved on after one night and would probably not return here. Fee does not include the $6 reservation fee.
Nice stop going across on I-10. The park was damaged with Katrina but they are rebuilding it and one of the bath houses was new. They had a laundry room, but no washers or dryers had been installed so we moved on after two days. Lots of walking space, and dogs can go on the little beach area at Lake Pontchartrain. We had a pull through space and the park was not real crowded so no one in spaces on either side. There are some lower hanging branches on the beautiful, old trees so just be careful and stay toward the center of some of the roads.
When we made a reservation, they told us we qualified for an "Internet Special" rate, if we'd take a site that didn't have cable hook-up available, which was fine with us. They even gave us the number of the site in the back pet area which looked fine. When we arrived, we found we'd been moved to the first space by the front gate, which was noisy with the gate opening and closing from about 6AM until after 11PM. We had to walk our dog out the front gate in the "wash" area of a dry creek bed, with no security and there were neighborhood people who took their dog off leash out there so it was very unsettling. We were not allowed to walk the dog though the park to the back pet walk, which it turned out was also out in the wash and not very secure either. Overall nice park, clean facilities, pretty close quarters, but definitely not pet friendly. We moved as soon as we found a park with a better and more secure pet walking arrangement. Will not return to this park.
Large pull throughs, and some back-ins that are less expensive. Great deal if you stay 6 nights (not even on the same trip), you get 7th night free. You can walk to the old town Mesilla plaza and there is good shopping nearby for groceries and other supplies. Fenced dog walk area, good laundry, clean bathrooms and showers. Is it a destination resort - no, but it's one of the best stop over locations we found traveling across I-10. It is definitely on our list as a stop over for our next cross country trip.
