19 RV sites, 4 new tent sites. Sites are level gravel, water pressure ~40 lbs, extremely friendly and helpful staff. Wi-Fi is solid, fast and free. Verizon signal is good. No trees, so satellite shot is clear, and the starry skies are spectacular at night. Park is clean, and folks are constantly working on improvements - they built a new fence while we were here. We think it's a relatively new park, and judging by how full they stayed, we expect they'll be expanding. They do have the room to. We'd stay here again.
Rate reflects week stay with Good Sam discount. Outstanding RV resort. Was beautifully landscaped, with large sites, level concrete pads, wonderful pool and spa, friendly staff, free rock-solid Wi-Fi. 2011 is their third season. On Saturday night you can sort of hear the dirt track racers about a half-mile up the road, and most days you can sort of hear the folks screaming on the roller coasters across the street. Easy satellite access from most sites. We'll certainly be back.
Rate reflects 3 nights of Passport America, 4 nights with the 15% FMCA etc discount for a middle row pull through. Riverfront is more, back ins are less. Note that only 50amp hookups are available: be sure to bring an adapter if you need less. We didn't find the freeway noise to be objectionable. You probably won't hear it over your AC if inside. Very friendly, very helpful folks in the office. Water pressure's a little low: 40lb. Park is on the river side of the flood wall, so be aware of the river levels. New pedestrian bridge across the river from the park to the Clinton Library will be open by fall 2011, making it even more convenient to Little Rock's tourist areas. Park rules limit stays to 14 days, but there are also rates posted for longer stays. Excellent Verizon signals, fast Verizon internet.
Rate reflects Passport America + $3 for using a 50-amp site. We were here five years ago - new owners now and the park is great. Free Wi-Fi is the best we've seen - over 10mbps download speed! Access road has been properly paved, new pull-thrus with concrete pads, very friendly and helpful staff. Most sites are well wooded, so be sure to ask about satellite-friendly sites when you reserve, if that's important. Good Verizon phone and data service, but the free Wi-Fi is so much better than the air card.
Lots of trees - if you need satellite, make sure you tell them when you reserve. Narrow interior roads, but sites are mostly level. Very convenient to Rocket Center (obviously) and the botanical gardens. It's the area that's the destination, not the campground.
As we checked in, the owner told us that he always vowed that when he built his own RV park, he's fix all the things that annoyed him about RV parks. Looks like he came pretty close. All the sites are pull-throughs. The outlets and breakers in the electrical boxes are well labeled and numbered so you know how they're paired. Plenty of water pressure. Well maintained, friendly folks, great place to stay. We'd stay here again.
Rate reflects combination of 30amp site, weekly rate and Escapees discount. One of the nicest places we've stayed. As far as noise, depending on which way the wind blows there is some airplane sound. As far as mud after the rain, there is some, but they were also applying gravel and grading the last couple of days we were here. Friendly, convenient, and just a couple miles from Camping World! We'd stay here again.
Rate is Coast to Coast plus $3/day to run our AC. Lots of long-term and permanent sites. Most rental sites are not fully sewered - just a gray water drain with a 2" pipe. Dump station is at the very rear of the park, and costs $6 to dump. Honey wagon is also available. Extremely friendly and helpful staff. Most interior roads are pretty tight, and the park says "no rigs over 33 ft". We're 32 ft, and just fit our space. Planned activities every weekend, breakfast and dinner available on weekends. It's an active park, lots of kids. We'd stay here again.
Our weekly rate includes sales tax for a W/E site out in the field - satellite access is important to us. We were escorted to our site, and they helped us position for best leveling. Site wasn't officially a pull-thru, but the layout was such that we used it as a pull-thru. Location is good, staff is extremely cordial, and the free shuttle bus is wonderful. DW says laundry was spotless and reasonably priced. We'd stay here again.
Agree 100% with previous review. The park now has a small laundry - 2 washers, 2 dryers. Aside from getting our rig into and out of the park and our site, we like the location a lot. We'd stay here again.
Rate is Coast to Coast. This is a resident-owned "community", and visitors (like us) are not allowed access to most of the amenities. C2C spaces are scattered among the permanent residences. Most of the permanent structures are older trailers, with a scattering of park models. Doesn't look like any have ever been washed. Spaces are close together. Heavily wooded, very hard to get satellite signals. It's a Verizon "extended service" zone. It is convenient for visiting the northeast Poconos area. Laundry requires tokens instead of cash. We wound up here by failing to reserve soon enough elsewhere for the July 4th holiday weekend. Park staff is not geared to supporting non-residents, and keys to get into things like the laundry are reluctantly doled out. We probably won't be in this area again, but if we are we'll try to find someplace else to park.
Membership park - our ROD rate actually $0. Can't comment on improvements under new owners, having never been here before. But the current owners are very busy fixing & upgrading. Most of the park is long-term and permanent occupants, but the transient sites are separate from the permanent sites, and quite close to the pool. Our site was grass, almost level, quite large. Staff very friendly. On-site restaurant open weekends for breakfast and lunch. Only RV park we've seen with a skateboard park - and a pretty big one at that. Be sure to follow the arrival directions on their website to avoid the worst of the hills. We'll stay here again.
Rate is actually $0 for a 30amp site with an ROD membership. Add $2 for 50amps. Just to set the record straight, this IS a membership park, but looks like they are affiliated with almost everybody - ROD, AOR, RPI, Coast to Coast that we know of. Sites we could choose from are not very level, and not paved. We finally leveled, and after one move were able to get satellite internet & TV. There is a building marked "Country Store", but it wasn't open during our stay. The sites are tight, and 40' really is the maximum rig length, 'cause the sites are just 40' long. If you pull a toad, you might have to park it elsewhere. On-site trash pickup is nice, staff is very friendly. If you stay here, drive over to Madison and visit the microcar museum - it's a blast.
Rate is Passport America. Overnighted one night on our way north. Nothing much has changed since the older reviews below. There is quite a bit of highway noise, and it looks like most rigs other than ours are long-term residents. There is an on-site RV service and repair facility which we didn't check out. All in all, nice place to stop but nothing spectacular.
Speedy, but convenient. Rate includes $3 daily electricity fee. Mostly here to see a Space Shuttle Launch. Everything said below is correct. Park really caters to long-term guests this time of year. $15 fee to wash vehicles. Highway noise is annoying, but not all that bad. We stayed in the "grove" section, all concrete pads, all motorhomes, good satellite access. Trailers and 5th Wheels were in other sections of the park. Staff is friendly and efficient, but also annoying somehow. Maybe it's because we're only here for 10 days. Park is actually at Mims, FL - right next door to the KOA. WiFi is not free. We'll probably not stay here again, mostly because of high price. Otherwise, a much better than average place to park.
Except for lack of sewer hookup, just wonderful. But there is a dump station that's easy to get to. We managed to find a site where we could get satellite tv, but most sites are very well shaded. Almost all sites are pull-thrus. Interior roads are paved, sites are gravel or grass. Peaceful, quiet, and not too far from the city. Park staff very friendly and helpful. We'd stay again . . .
Rate is Coast to Coast. This park seems to accept every discount there is - nobody should have to pay full price. Sites are tight, but adequate. Interior roads are also tight. Wouldn't exactly call it a "resort". Pool was closed. Sites are all grassy, and we saw some rigs that had settled into the soil a bit. Staff is friendly and helpful. Park gates close at 6pm, but aren't locked, so you can come back later. Laundry also closes at 6pm. About 2/3 of the spaces seem to be long term folks. Very little highway noise to our old ears. Convenient to Okefenokee, Golden Isles, St Marys, and north Fla beaches. We spent a week, and would again when in the area.
Rate is RPI. If you want satellite, this is not a park for you. The park name says it all - fully wooded. Other than that, very friendly staff, water, electric & sewer all work, and the on-site lake does have a gator or two. Spaces are all pull-thrus, and generously spaced, but the interior roads are pretty tight. Some highway and railroad noise, but nothing major. Quiet time is 9pm-9am - never seen such an early curfew before.
Rate is Coast to Coast plus tax & utility surcharge. Park is about 1/3 park models, and is very well kept. As stated, all sites are paved and level. Most are tree shaded, so if satellite is important, ask for a clear site. Convenient location, friendly and helpful staff. There are a few RV sites that back up to the intercoastal waterway, but most don't. Lots of activities, residents all friendly, plenty of birds and squirrels to enjoy (or annoy, depending). We'd give it a 10 except for the $10 fee for washing a rig or car.
Just to update and agree with the previous 5-year old review. There was a satellite internet dish at the store (which was closed), but you couldn't get wifi at the sites. Didn't try at the store. There are a few 50 amp sites for $2 a day. Reiterate - DO NOT attempt Mill Creek Rd from Rt 45 to park - the railroad underpass will take your roof off. Follow the directions on the park website.
Rate is Coast to Coast. This is a fully-sold residence park, mostly park models. The Coast to Coast spaces are outside the main park, not behind the gates. You do have access to the main park. Sites are heavily wooded, very tight, all grass, fairly level, and subject to muddiness when it rains. About half are ostensibly pull-thru, but internal access paths (not really roads) are very narrow. No possibility of satellite service. Dump station is also outside the park, about 1/3 mile from campsites. Sites are u-pick, first come, first serve. Even medium size motor homes (30-35') will have challenges maneuvering. Quiet times are not well enforced. That said, if you want to camp in the trees several miles from anything, this place would be ideal. Not our cup of tea, though.
Rate reflects monthly rate for a two week stay. If you don't have a Cummins engine and need to stay more than a couple of days, this is the only game in the Columbus area. Don't plan on satellite service - you may get lucky, but this is a very wooded park, very quiet. Looks to be a lot of long-term residents. Owners are very friendly. Big rigs are best accommodated at the front of the park - negotiating the narrow, winding tree-lined roads deeper in is a challenge. As stated, common areas are immaculate. We'll stay here again, but also wish we had more choices.
We stayed in the new section of the park - very new, no shade. Our choice so we could get satellite service. Once the grass grows out and the roads and sites get compacted some, ought to be nice, but until then hope it doesn't rain. Some water pressure problems. Daily trash pickup at site. There is highway noise, but not louder than our air conditioner. No laundry. Passport America honored during week, not on weekends. FMCA discount any day. Doesn't do credit cards. New section has 50amp service. Never heard any trains, but the tracks do run along the park boundary.
Rate reflects Passport America for two of the 4 nights we stayed. Friendly staff, escort to site. No shade - it is a big flat field, as has been mentioned. Can be soggy when it rains. Very convenient to the Amana Colonies. Free wifi works very well most of the time. It's not a self-contained resort, and doesn't claim to be. But it is a good place to park for a few days. We'd stay here again.
Rate is water-electric only, KOA discount. Lots of trees make satellite access iffy, so negotiate site if that's important. Free wifi worked great. Our MH is 32' - bigger rigs were being carefully maneuvered into and out of sites with help from park staff. Escort to site is nice. Some sites not very level. On-site pizza shop with to-site delivery is great - and the pizza was very good, too. Very friendly, very helpful staff. We'd stay here again.
Coast-to-Coast rate plus $2/day for utilities. This is just our 2nd year motorhoming, but Hart Ranch is the first "resort" we've encountered that we'd consider spending a whole season in (but not winter). It's reasonably quiet, everybody's friendly, and there are families of all ages and sizes. Like a small town. Close enough to Rapid City and the tourist stuff, isolated enough if that's not your style. We'll be back.
We'll echo all that's been said. Pete is a most engaging host, and the rib house in town is first class (but make reservations!). It's a park, not a resort. Good water pressure, stable electric, level sites, all pull-thrus, easy access. We over nighted, but next time we'll stay a couple more days to check out the area.
Coast to Coast rate. Resort includes condo complex, rv pads, atv access to trails. Park was full when we checked in, almost all families, but emptied out after the weekend. Everybody's very friendly. About 1/2 hour by car from Salt Lake City (south) or Odgen (north). Interior roads paved, pads gravel, lots of lawn. We had a good shot for satellite tv and internet, though trees might hamper at other sites. The much-vaunted restaurant wasn't open - the newsletter was recruiting folks to run it. It's a membership park, and most rigs we saw had member cards in the windows. Be a good destination if you like getting away from the city. Not practical as a stopover - some pretty steep climbs to get here, and it's 12 miles off the interstates.
Very nice park, very nice staff. Sites are kind of narrow, but not overly so. Not all sites are the same length, though - so make sure you get one that's long enough. On-site "grille" serves pretty good food four nights a week. No cell service is a pain, but they'll loan you a free phone, and if you just call toll-free numbers or have folks call you, there's no extra charges. WiFi is free, but kind of slow. If we return to Zion Nat'l Park area, we'll stay there again.
This park recently changed its name to "Winchester Bay RV Resort". It's a delightful place - well landscaped, great views of either the ocean or the harbor. Close to some excellent eating - Fishpatrick's Crabby Cafe especially. ATVs are off-limits here, so it's generally quiet. WiFi is free, but erratic. Park is county owned and operated. We're here for three weeks, so rate reflects weekly rate.
Temp was 107 when we checked in, so interpret comments accordingly. Wifi is free, sometimes slow. Access road is gravel (DON'T use exit 268. Use 265 for less dust.) Sites are grass/gravel, internal roads are gravel, dust is a problem. On this stay, the air temp was higher than the hot tub temp. On-site fishing stream (license required, catch & release only), friendly staff. Some sites look to have never been used. About 7 miles from town. Antenna TV gets all the networks. Location at base of mountain may hamper satellite depending on site.
Free wi-fi! Sites are all long pull-thrus, gravel with good grass and trees that need a few more seasons of growth. Hot tub but no pool. Not all sites have sewer hookup, so be sure to ask if that's important. Cheerful, friendly staff, close to highways but no noticable road noise. 5 miles out of town, entrance from highway 93 a little awkward and not too well marked. We'd stay here again.
I'd give it a 10 except for the $4 a day wi-fi charge. Check at the office for info on the drive-by wash and wax folks - good work, good price, not especially fast, but you're paying by the foot, not the hour. Free AM coffee in the office, expensive laundry (cheaper ones in town). Well run, clean, quiet park (if you don't count the weekend rodeo). We'll stay here again. Reserve early in the summer.
Sites are tight - our rig is 32' and there was barely enough space for the toad. Bigger rigs had to park toads or tow vehicles at park entrance. Sites not completely level, but doable. No grass, some trees. Wi-fi was solid, laundry clean and fast. We parked near the highway, so road noise was noticable. Everybody very friendly. TV is off antenna, and is limited but good reception. Cell phone signals excellent.
Parking space within site was level, but rest of site was pretty uneven - we needed an extra step at the door. Office is rarely open, but staff was almost always in the park somewhere working. Just 2 machines in laundry. 10pmh speed limit is largely ignored, especially by the free shuttle bus. We noticed no highway noise and only occasional aircraft noise. Wifi is quite reliable and costs $2 a day. Park is at south end of town, but it's not a big town, so it's quite convenient. We'd stay here again when in Rochester.
Sites are all sand/grass, but level. We had a small water drip at their faucet that we couldn't stop - and the drippage stained our white hose badly with rust. Be sure you have a filter. No sand burrs, but lots of ants and gnats. It's an OK place to stop for a day or two (we stayed 3), but there's lots of room for improvement.
Well-wooded campground with lots of shade. If you need satellite access, you'll need to pick your site carefully. On-site owners are friendly and professional. Interior roads are a bit tight for really big rigs. Several seasonal residents. Good off-air TV from both Indianapolis and Louisville. Wife says the laundry is the best value she's found. Wi-Fi is on the way, says the owner. The satellite internet is up and running and he's working now on the router and antennas. We'll stay here again.
This was a spur-of-the-moment overnight stop. Close to the highway, but no noise; gravel, level sites, wifi (pay) if you're close to the office. If you need satellite access, ask, and they'll give you a site with a southern view. Rate is Passport America. Everybody's friendly, and the book swap library is very well stocked. If we're in the neighborhood again, we'll stay here. And if you're into automotive stuff, the JC Whitney distribution center and outlet store is on the other side of the highway. (no cornfield this year)
Not much to disagree with in the previous review, except that free Wi-Fi is available, though it might not cover the whole park. (We were fairly close to the office and had good signal). They expect $3 per person per day for visitors, but "the first half hour is free." We had plenty of visitors and never paid the fee. Lots of kids in the park who seemed to have a good time in the lake and riding the three-wheel rent-a-bikes. Everybody friendly and accommodating, good shade, daily at-site trash pickup, a tad noisy from highway noise and late-night happy folks (after quiet time).
Very comfortable park, convenient to town without being in it. Sites are smallish, but sufficient, and there are plenty of open spaces for gatherings. Access roads inside the park are quite narrow, and larger rigs may have challenges if neighbors park casually. They lock the gates at 11pm, but there is a "secret" bypass that's probably too tight for anything but a toad. We'd stay here again.
Except for a very spendy wifi ($12/day), the park is very nice. Lots of shade but still good satellite access, minimal highway noise, and for those concerned about weather, two designated storm shelters. The tennis courts were being resurfaced in June 06. On-site RV service and sales nearest the highway, then transient spaces, with the "seasonal" spaces at the very back of the park.
A delightful small park almost in the heart of historic Independence. Cheerful, friendly on-site management, very few long-term sites. Sites very level, but not especially wide. Good proximity to all the historic and religious attractions. Before we checked in, park manager called us during a severe thunderstorm to make sure we were ok, and to assure us that the storm was blowing over and not affecting the park - nice touch.
Rate is Passport America. The entrance road is the only real drawback, but it's being widened (making it even more touchy during construction). Good solid free WiFi, excellent cable tv, on-site owners/managers with really good info on area attractions, restaurants and shows. Extremely quiet park, plenty of good shade.
Sites are kind of narrow, and pull-thrus are just 55' long (but long enough for us). Two pools, great laundry, private showers that look very nice, and excellent free wifi. Sites are gravel. Major expansion underway that looks like it will at least double the size of the park. Lots of cottonwoods in the area, so lots of "snow" everywhere. Good shade trees might hamper satellite reception depending on site. We'd come back here.
Good parking place. Wifi is Tengointernet, and while the signal was good, the connection was erratic. Sites are narrow, and most of the folks seem to have been around a while. Little noise, but still convenient to the freeway system. Not a destination, unless the flea market is your thing, but a good enough base for doing Houston.
A mature park with a fair number of what look to be long-term residents, but also a lot of in-and-out traffic. Very convenient to downtown (about 3 miles), and actually within the Mission district. Sites are wide enough, but not huge, good shade trees, excellent cable TV, extremely helpful staff. Didn't find the water pressure to be all that high. More noise from all the birds than anything else. A little spendy, plus paid WiFi keeps it from getting a full 10.
Nice shade trees, pretty good grass, very friendly staff. Sites are paved, you're guided to the site, and the free contintental breakfast is good. While RV washing is not allowed, we saw a roving RV wash truck doing some impressive work at $6 a linear foot (wash) or $8 (wash/wax). Wish we'd seen him sooner. Only downside is the highway noise from I-40.
A great base to explore the Grand Canyon & northern Arizona area. All sites are gravel and very level. Great free WiFi. Good free continental breakfast. Tammera and Pat, who own and run the park, are extremely personable and very knowledgeable about the area, and can offer good suggestions. Very few extended stay guests. Park is 15 years old, and the Birch trees at most sites planted then are now about 15ft tall and were just starting to leaf out when we left. Just 4 washers and dryers in the laundry, so it can get congested.
Clean, well maintained, well staffed, mature park. Lots of long-term folks (park staff is drawn from long-term guests), plus plenty of pull-thrus for short-term. WiFi has excellent coverage (tengointernet) and was open and free during our stay. 24hour security at the gate also handles late arrivals. Warm pool and hot spa, and usually cookies in the office. Good Vegas base.
Hard to find someplace in the San Francisco area, this one is quite convenient. 5 minutes to the cross-bay ferry, 10 minutes to Six Flags Marine World, 20 minutes to Camping World or the Jelly Belly factory. Several long-term residents, apparently. Didn't see any kids in four days. Fair amount of noise from highway. Tricky to find - pay very close attention to the directions. Excellent laundry, lots of machines. Not a "resort", but a really good base to explore from.
Looks to be a relatively new park. Staff very friendly and helpful. Free wifi was solid and almost always very fast. Didn't look to be any permanent residents. Most sites paved, the rest gravel. Everything clean and well-maintained. Water park under construction across the street. A little bit of noise from the airport a mile or two up the road, and from the construction across the street. Excellent showers and restrooms (didn't use, but we looked).
