We had a 3+ week work project in Carrollton, so booked a site for a month. That brought our nightly rate to $12 (YOU CAN'T BEAT THAT!). The owners were there to check us in (very nice folks) and offered us the Wi-Fi (for $5+ a month) and the satellite box rental ($1 a day) which we took advantage of. We stayed in site #59 at the top of the hill, just a few spaces off the main entrance. It's been great. We have received a Fed Ex order here, we can ship out our completed work reports via the mail box at the entrance. We don't have children but we has enjoyed seeing all the different critters here; macaws, peacocks, desert tortoises, alligators, pot bellied pig, and even feed the rabbits carrots. :) We can ride our bicycles around the paved driveways. The only thing that's a bit "different" is the layout. Because all the sites are pull-through, all the driveways are 1-way. So, you need to circle the entire park to get to your site. But that keeps folks from parking every which way. The spaces are not cramped, but certainly not as spacious as a state or county park would be. Convenient? You betcha! And we would stay here again - in a heartbeat when working in the area. Even if only for a night or two. AWESOME place if you have children.
We checked out 5 park near Glacier NP when we were in the area without our RV. This park is definitely what I would call "heavily wooded", which we do not prefer. The lots were not level and there were no views. It's off the main highway so is a bit quieter, but would be difficult to navigate with a large RV. We probably would not stay here when in the area again.
We checked out this campground when we were in the area without our RV. It is the closest campground to Glacier NP being located IN the park itself, between the West Glacier entrance and the main lodge. It is quite heavily treed but the spaces are roomy on pull arounds off the drive that winds through the campground . Probably not good for large rigs, but do-able. There is a shuttle that comes through Apgar to take guests to the boat and/or bus ride tours or the main lodge. We might stay here for a short visit if there was no availability in Coram or Columbia Falls, but it would not be our first choice.
We checked out five different parks near Glacier NP when we were in the area without our RV, even tho we did not stay at any of them. Of the 5 this park appeared the most comfortable. Spaces were roomy and appeared mostly level. It is under some trees but not "forested". Flowers were abundant and there were no "hearty partiers" when we drove thru as in the other parks. We would stay in this park when we return to the area.
We didn't stay here, but did check it out when in Bardstown. The week after the annual Blues Fest it was clean and no signs (other than 1 road sign)there had even been a festival in the park. It is on a hill, so there are some rough drives and sites due to rain run-off down the hill towards the RVP spaces. A couple permanent residents, but most sites were well-kept. There is room to maneuver a larger rig, but it's tight at the bottom of the hill. Is a small park located behind the owner's private home & barn off Hwy 62 west of Bardstown. Bardstown is a Civil War era town with LOTS of things to see and do such as horse drawn carriage rides, museums, 1700's Pioneer cemetery and ghost tours. LOTS of history in this town. I prefer this park to the My Old KY Home SP because the sites are longer for a fifth-wheel than the SP spaces. Not as scenic as the SP.
Short spaces, some too short for a 36' fifth wheel. OK for shorter rigs, alto there were a couple long sites. Paved, few level, under large trees. Pretty setting on the back side of the SP on Hwy 62 east of the downtown traffic circle. Bardstown is a really neat Civil War historic town with lots of well preserved homes, a few museums and local restaurants with fresh garden veggies. About 1 hours south of Louisville, KY.
Operated by the City of Lapeer, this park is located on the north side of town, across from the hospital, adjacent to the river and a nice park. It has plenty of room for larger rigs to maneuver and although small in # of sites has plenty of room for each site. There is a historic winery in town that is worth a visit. I posted this review because in checking this site, I did not see any other reviews posted for this park. It's a great option if in the area. Although we did not stay here this visit because we did not have our RV with us this trip, we WILL use this RV park when we return to the area in the RV. Note: the sign said open May-October BUT when we visited in mid-April, it was open and had sites occupied. GREAT winter weather this year.
We did not camp here, but checked it out while in the area working. Next year, we'll be back with our RV. It was clean, neat and tidy and just a couple miles on the east side of town. Spaces are not heavily treed, but provide enough coverage and room for comfort. We are looking forward to coming back in 2012.
GREAT rally &/or snow bird park. EZ access off I-19 between Tucson & Nogales, AZ. All sites are spacious, LEVEL and a very convenient walk to the large well-stocked clubhouse. Lovely furnishings in many reading or lounging areas. Positives were the heated salt water pool and hot tub-both kept clean. Negatives were - the limited showers were small and old. No water pressure with tepid - not hot water. The showers were kept very clean. While in the area we toured the Titan Missile museum and the Mt. Hopkins observatory.
When calling about this park, they were VERY specific about our ages. It's a 55+ park, and only 1 of us qualifies. Our RV is a classic - and they don't allow older than 10 years. So we WON'T be staying here. We'll be staying in a park that appreciates a senior RVing in a well re-furbished classic that looks better than many of the modern rigs on the road today. Discrimination is alive & practiced daily here, so we'll roll on.
Thanksgiving 2010 - great Pot Luck dinner; next night free Jam session. Quiet, level site, walking trails adjacent to park. Beautiful mountain views; no campfires allowed. Also enjoyed a Mounted Shooting competition nearby. Was cold that weekend, but thoroughly enjoyed our stay. GREAT rally park - very convenient pull-through sites and great office staff. Owner lives on site & joins in the Jam sessions. We'll be back !
