A transition is about. I rolled through here last summer and found a lot of the same things others were complaining about. But the one brother seems to be working vigilantly to bring the park up to par. He may not be there just yet, but it is coming along. Recently, a load of road millings were delivered to help shore up the roads, there are 2 new washer machines, the playground and pool areas are painted and improved, the grass is cut on a regular basis and it looks like a majority of the long-term worker residents have left. Perhaps half a dozen are left. The problem I have is the lack of enforcement with the leash law/rule. The long-termers come home from work and drink beer while their dogs are running around until 10 at night - weekends are worse. If you are a responsible dog owner, you constantly have fend off the loose ones. The other thing is the Internet. It took a while for someone to come out and kick the Wi-Fi unit in the rear end to get it to work. I'll be here next year
Easy to find off Rt. 80 with signs. It looks like they have done some work by pouring new, long concrete pads. There are trees to provide shade. Can barely hear traffic from Rt. 80. Has a pool. Very clean campground trimmed grass, newer clubhouse. Even though there is no cable, I pulled in 25 digital air stations with my power booster. The Wi-Fi signal was good.
Wow, nice state park. Well cared for, quiet and full hookups. We had all the major stations out of Omaha. Plenty of driveways, bike paths to walk the dogs. I'll have to give state parks a second look if they are anything like this.
I'm glad I was steered away from another CG and came here. Nice surroundings with tree and grass and gravel roads. Great place. My only problem was that my site had a bad CATV signal with snowy channels. Plenty of things to do with kids: water slide, bunnies, pool and playground.
Beautiful surroundings. Wonderful, helpful work campers. But...the c.g. is on a hill. The sites are terraced with the utilities on the uphill side. That is, the sewer is about the same height of your outlet. Also, my site was not level causing my curbside wheels to be off the ground by half a foot. The internet antenna is on the shower house with a 3 foot pole. Not high enough to hit my rv. It was blocked by other trailers. Spotty cell service. Only 1 air channel. Doubt I would stay here again. The other ratings are too generous.
You have to traverse through a construction/commercial area to get there but once you turn the corner, you say to yourself, "Nice". Manicured lawns, curbed sites, utility stations for hookups, plenty of CATV channels, newer out-buildings. I couldn't hear much highway noise. Be aware - a $2 dink per dog and a max of two. I would definitely stay here again.
Not bad. Close to GC South Rim park entrance. Close to town. Bathroom could be updated. The sites are a little worn. Dusty dirt from gopher holes. No CATV, no air channels. WiFi limited to 1 MBS. Would stay here again.
Couldn't get into the Boulder CG and settled for Nellis. Not bad but not very secure. The front driveway is wide open to the street with no gate. Lots of people walking/hanging around. The office is not operating. You have to go to Boulder to check in unless you call from the outside house phone and walk over after you hook up. Security does pass through once in awhile. The biggest complaint is the curbing around the campsite. Could you at least make it a 45 degree one? (Next door's RV Resort had a $29 special for any site. Should have tried that.)
It looks like the owner is trying to improve the grounds. Loads of creeping ivy is being torn out on both sides of the front block wall and the rear fence by the dog walk area. The blacktop is looking a little tired maybe that is next. Yes, I-5 is above the CG and west and causes traffic noise but it is an urban area and you have to expect it. The CG is well located. The office/rec area is decent.
Passport America rate of $25 a night. Caution: there are "pull-throughs" but the length wasn't enough for our trailer so we had to do a back-in. My only suggestion would be to orient the back-ins at a 45 degree angle from the street. But what a great park. Their rec center with the hot spring pools was wonderful. The park was neat and clean. The people here are friendly and seem very pleased with everything. I would definitely come back again.
I spent two nights here because we were passing through to CA. I am grateful for that because it is the high season and most parks are filled with seasonal renters and offer no overnighters. The worst part is that the sites are tight. Not only that but the seasonals stake out every square inch of "their" plot with sheds, fencing, ATVs, membrane garages and what not. I tried backing in my 40 footer and had a hell of a time. Other than that, very clean, quiet, and plenty of fruit they share, and places to walk the dog.
The full-page ad in the Good Sam Trailer Life Directory sold me on trying this place. When I first laid eyes on it, I was disappointed. It looks like it had paved roads and sites 50 years ago and it was left to crumble away from neglect. The sites sorely need some landscape touch up. But other than that, the front desk lady was very friendly and they had Internet.
Here are the pluses: 1. Location - Park once and walk to Main Street and most of the attractions on the west end. 2. The staff is very helpful and friendly. 3. Great CATV (70+ Channels including HBO) and Wi-Fi. Negatives: 1. Hilly and tight turns. I have a 40' rig and it was tight on an uphill tight turn. Because it was off-season, they allowed me to use 4 sites along the back, upper road. 2. The grounds need some attention with leveling and terracing. I would stay here again.
Good campground right off the Interstate. We did get air channels. Good Internet signal. Nice surroundings. Water pressure was sketchy, because of the drought in the area. I would definitely stay here again.
This our second time in two years staying at this campground. Just to let you know there isn't much in New Jersey, east Pennsylvania or south New York for full hook up CGs with CATV and WiFi. My GPS wasn't picking up on Silver Valley "Ct." I was here on a NASCAR weekend and it was nearly full. It looks like the owner is re-grading the roads (widen, fill-in, drainage) with quarry process. He also added a new building made from trees taken off the property. I say it is OK. However, the internet ran slow half the time.
A little bit of a drive off I-95 N, but worth it. The grounds were neatly trimmed. They appear to be sprucing up the grounds with shrubs and mulch. The sites are level. We opted for CATV for a couple of bucks more than the PA rate. I would recommend this CG.
First you have to find this place before you can stay at this creepy campground. I saw signs as I was exiting I-95N but then nothing. I drove around for a half-hour asking a local for directions. It turns out, it is off Yemasee Road next to "Waffle House" - then make a left at the end. Keep driving until you hit a swampy area, and you are there. We tried calling their office for directions, and it kept going to message. When I explained this when arriving, the manager said, "Well, I had the phone with me the whole time". She ended up giving us CATV for free for our troubles. She also was excited that she could give us a site with no water puddles! Oh joy! This campground has water puddles all over the place. It seems to me that they spend nothing on maintenance and upkeep. When we woke up then next morning, the sun light didn't break into the swamp area until 10:30. I don't think we'll come here again.
The location and proximity to The Villages is what made us stay here. Once here, it was a decent CG. Great WiFi that didn't skip a beat. The site were somewhat level. Yes, it could use concrete pads and maybe a picnic table but the rate was good with PA. The clubhouse, pool and bathrooms were great. The other residents are nice. The only complaint was the sand being tracked in the camper. I would definitely stay here again. It is an over 50+ CG but allow others to stay for 2 weeks or less.
The park is probably half filled with full-timers and park model home. The lots are narrow. Our pull-through site happened to be on the end of loop and was decent width. Some of the permanent residents seem to have a lot of additions, sheds and lawn ornaments, but it is Florida. The Internet is provided by a third-party called Nationwide. It cost $10 for 48 hours. No need for CATV because it has all the major over-the-air channels. The turnpike is close by but the tree line blocks some of the noise. We ran the A/C so it didn't bother us. Not a bad place to spend a couple of days
We tried this CG because it was on our Passport America list. Mind you, it was off-season and no one was here except for some full-timers. We like the pine trees surrounding the CG because it gave some shade in the afternoon. Plenty of room to walk our dogs. We had a FHU with 50 amps. The over-the-air TV channels had all the majors. Watch your turning radii. if you have a big rig. Could have used a picnic table. Owner was great.
We came here in the off-season on a Sunday night (5:30). On the second bend into site 11 I nearly scraped a tree real close to the gravel road. The owners put cones out to warn you but our 40' 5W couldn't quite make it. I had to back up and try again. The grounds are quiet except I heard gunshots/fireworks a couple hundred yards away. PA discount is not good on weekends and that includes Sunday night too. So I had to pay $40 for that night. I thought that is a little steep for off-season in MS. I hadn't paid that much my entire trip from AZ! No CATV. Only air channels (11) out of New Orleans across the sound. The Wi-Fi was a little slow. The restrooms and laundry were very clean. The campsite is 8 miles from I-10.
No CATV, but had seven air channels - Wi-Fi. Smaller park. A little tough to maneuver a 40' fifth wheel in some pull-throughs, but manageable. Tried to call all day for reservation and found out on arrival that a novice worker never answered the phone or called back people who left a message. Other than that, the staff was very friendly.
Where do I begin. Be aware, to get into the park you have to pay $10 just to GET to the campground! We arrived near dark and in the rain. Only one FHU left in this narrow, rooted site. No air or cable TV as advertised. The Wi-Fi was either nonexistent or spotty at best. I would never come back.
Easy access off I-95. It is at the end of a service road on the west side. Nice and flat with sandy, compacted roads. Newer office and out buildings. The bathrooms and showers were really clean. I'd come back again. BTW, the highway noise is there but not terrible.
No discounts from any camping clubs. GPS directions were off only because we used Hope, NJ instead of Blairstown, NJ. Lots of rules and signs. The water hookup was a distance away from the other utilities. My hose just made it. Our site was not level. Biggest setback was no CATV or antenna reception. No Wi-Fi either. They only have internet at office at a cost of $9 for the weekend. Seems that it is more of a family-oriented campground with kids. Would I stay here again? Probably not.
What a great over-nighter. Well maintained grounds: i.e. grass, paint, signs, picnic tables. The bathrooms are very clean and neat. The staff was real friendly. Easy access off I-81 but be warned: my GPS had me going 7 more miles past the entrance. But don't worry, their signs certainly give you enough notice. The only drawback was my site (#10) was pitched up and required ramps to level it.
A little off the I-95 corridor but real quiet and a Passport America campground. The roads and sites are compacted gravel/dirt with easy radius turns. We had pull-through site 25. It was slightly pitch down but not too bad. Lots of tall pines with cleared ground around them to walk the dog. If I had too guess, this campground looks several years old. We got 5 digital air channels for TV. Most pleasant surprise was the bathrooms - very clean and squared away.
It is better than an over-nighter. The staff escorts you to the site and helps you negotiate the site. The hook-up was simple and well located. The site was paved and kind of level. I-95 is off in the distance, but not too noisy. The bathrooms were OK. You get 11 digital air channels. Not bad.
EZ access from I-95. Staff was pleasant. Got the PA rate of $16.80. The detraction was that the CATV didn't work well at all. Too much pixelation and the station would drop off. Neighbor campers said the same thing. Sign on office door says that Comcast requires a box for $40 deposit because it converted to digital. However, I have a digital TV! It should not have mattered. I think something is wrong with their wiring. Other than missing our Sunday night shows, it was a good over-nighter.
We happened upon this campground only because our first choice didn't answer the phone. But we were not disappointed. To best describe it, it reminded me of my days of a kid in upstate NY (rough-sawn out buildings). It is hard to believe this is in Florida. The lake has large trees surrounding it. Has a nice back-woodsy kind of smell to it. The owners were real nice and welcoming. They invited us down to the dock along the lake for coffee in the morning. The 20 sites are level but the horseshoe-shaped road leading in and out is a bit pitched somewhat (we had the first easy in/out spot). Although there were some fifth wheel and trailers present which says it can't be too difficult. Check out the huge fish and turtles right off the dock. Great spot for an over night.
Las Cruces is a busy little town. Some of the streets have tight lanes. We came in after hours. The instructions were clear on where to set up and how much. The over-nighters get the back corner on pea-sized compacted gravel. But it was OK. The FHU was in order. Wifi and cable TV worked well. 74 channels on the TV! The place was clean with wide roads throughout.
Actually this is a decent RV park. It looks to me that the city used construction fill to man-make the park along the river and then put a QP over the top to make it level. It does have a nice view of the city on the other side of the river. Only problem is that it only offers 2 30A sites. Everything else is 50A. They will lend you a "50A to 30A converter" for a $20 deposit. There is grass along the river with park benches to walk the dog. The bath/shower are pre-fab out buildings that are OK if you need them. The air TV signals are great. Not bad at all for an over-night stay. It looks like mostly Class A and 5th wheels stay here.
This is strictly an "overnight" campground. Everything is done over the phone and honesty method. A rolling fence is in place. You have to let yourself in an out. The water quality was so-so. It was close enough to the highway to feel secure. We were the only campers there for the night. Plan your exit if you are there in a longer unit. One site is best to pull through and around.
Tell you what: this is a great campground for OKC. The grounds are beautiful: concrete pads, well-kept grass, utilities all good. The main building/office/shop/pool area and bathrooms were all top-notch. The only issue was that the entire campsite is built into a bowl-shaped hill with a highway above it. Most of the sites are level but have a hill down and off the site onto the roadway. If you are long with a toad be sure you get a site long enough for it. One of the best campgrounds I've been to in a while.
I called in advance and was told that the pull-through with FHU were only 50A electric. My truck camper is only 30A. She said we'd have to take a non-sewer site to get the 30A service. What?! Every campground in America has 30A available at a FHU!
If you are towing a vehicle - be advised that the roads inside are narrow and radius on the turns are tight. In addition, they aren't well marked which ones are "in/out" or one way. Besides that, it is a well-maintained campground. The store is squared away. 48 air channels and Wi-Fi that was in and out. Great laundry room.
A third of the campsite is hilly, the other two-thirds has a flat section leading down to a stream. We stayed in the flat section. Roughly about half the sites are shaded. They give a good effort to involve families in activities. The owner was real nice to chat with. The gravel roads to, in, and around can get a bit dusty if vehicles don't follow the 5 mph speed limit. The CATV and Wi-Fi worked well. It was quiet at night after 10:30 p.m. Dog friendly. Some of the hilly sites would not be too level.
Real neat location in the foothills among pecan tree grove with an elevated view of water. Charming place, clubhouse knotty pine with a homey feeling. Concrete pads. No cable or TV reception: must use SATV. I highly recommend it.
A real family-oriented resort with a water feature that is pretty impressive. The weekends are busy. The sewer connections are a good 25' from the rest of the utility hookups. Why? I had to pull forward quite a bit and use and an extension. The grounds are nice with shady spots. The staff is present and watching. The Sheriff patrols also. The bathrooms are OK, not great.
Not recommended. It is way at the end of a dirt road. Just enough room to pass another wide RV. Deep water troughs on either side. When you arrive, there is no one here to greet you! You have to call ahead and some woman, not the owner, shows up to collect the money. No other campers in sight! Isolated and buggy. The water was yellow. No cable TV as advertized. We got our money back and left. I'd be surprised if they stay in business.
Great for the price. Easy on/off I-10. Might be tight for anything over 45'. Level, gravel sites. Decent widths. Major drawback: a train comes through town only a 150 yards away and blasts the horn on the hour throughout the night. No sleep.
