Rate reflects Good Sam discount. This is out third stay at the Ranch. Arrived after a long day in 98 degree heat and a lot of wind. Check in was very easy and quick. Pulled into site #13, leveled the rig and then plugged in the power. Our Surge Guard surge protector showed no power from the receptacle. Did some troubleshooting then called the office. After about 15 minutes, maintenance man showed up and said he would have to replace the plug. Moved to site 12, where I had already checked the power. Note to self….check the power before setting up the rig. Good water pressure. The WiFi is free with moderate speed. You can only connect one device per account so when I was connected, the wife had to wait until I was finished. A little bit of a hassle. There was a distinct sewer smell, which I suspect was coming from the horse corrals. It was bad enough that we didn't sit outside at all. Our Verizon Jet Pack connected at 3G with three bars, but was very, very slow to the point it was useless most of the time. Did not use any of the facilities.
Rate reflects a Passport America discount. A little off the beaten path for a one night stop but it's worth it for the peace and quiet. Also, they don't have a gazillion lights to disturb your sleep. Parking is mostly side-by-side on gravel (the whole park is gravel), good 50-amp electric and so-so water pressure. This park is owned by Loners On Wheels. We will stay again.
Or third stay here and we'll be back. All RV sites are pull-thru's on gravel and well spaced. Power and water pressure was good. Super customer service. Internet was OK but did slow down dramatically in the evening. Our Verizon MiFi worked well in 3g mode. We had only planned to stay one night but after visiting the Old Historic Jail in town, we decided to stay another night and tour Fort Stockton. What is there to see in Fort Stockton anyway? After the old jail, there is the Annie Riggs Museum, Fort Stockton and even a driving tour of the town. See y'all in Jan.
Rate reflects Passport America discount. This park is located a few miles off the beaten path but well worth the time to get there. The parking spots are large, gravel covered, and fairly level. The free Wi-Fi is outstanding. Some traffic noise during the day but quiet at night. We'll be back!
Rate reflects Passport America discount for one night. We have stayed at Hidden Valley several times, and it always feels like "home" when we get here. The manager welcomes you with a big smile and a "Howdy" that always makes us smile. She will also give you a lot of information about the local area including directions to the downtown attractions, best parking based on what you will be driving, and much more. If you are looking for a park with a lot of amenities, Hidden Valley is not for you. But, if you want a quiet, peaceful park completely away from the city, then this is the place you need. Yeah, there is a long gravel road to drive after turning off Fisher Rd., but believe me, it's worth it. Just go slow so not to kick up a lot of dust. Although the WiFi can be slow at times, it's free. We will be back!
Very nice, well maintained park. A lot if seasonal and full-time residents but the sites are kept clear of clutter. Good power and water pressure. We did not use the facilities. The entry and exit gates are very poorly designed. We were assigned site #517. When going through the gate with our 40' RV, we could not negotiate the immediate left turn. We had go go through the park and make a complete loop to get back to the site. Not a real problem but that could have been eliminated by a better design. Exit gates are narrow but manageable.
Rate reflects a Passport America discount. Very nice and well maintained park. Assistant managers are very friendly and are doing an outstanding job. Restrooms and showers were spotless. We were assigned spot #29. Electric hookup was very low to the ground. Couldn't use our surge suppressor. Great water pressure. We will return.
Rate reflects one night Passport America and then weekly rate. We came back to Cody's to visit friends who are staying here. There have been several improvements made to the park since our last visit four years ago. One of them that we really like is the stone paver patio's that have been installed in some of the sites. The bathrooms in the office building have also been renovated and the other one's near the pavilion are a project in progress. Yes, there are several permanent residents here but in today's economy, this is not unusual. Everyone here is friendly. Some of the folks don't keep their area clean and free of junk as they should. Management goes "above and beyond" to make your stay at Cody's a pleasant experience. WiFi is free and fast during most of the day. We hope to get back to Cody's sometime soon.
Rate reflects Passport America discount. I pretty much had a hint that this is not going to be anything like a "resort" as the name implies when the person in the office had to buzz me through the door. This is basically a run-down mobile home park. We were assigned a very unlevel pull-through site on grass with 30-amp service. Didn't use any of the facilities so can't comment on them. Trains, trains, trains! We would stay again as a last resort but not if we had to pay full price.
Rate reflects Passport America. Registration was fast and easy. We were assigned to spot 13, a very large back-in on grass. Roads in the park have a lot of pot holes so drive slow. The 30-amp power was good and the shared water had good pressure. We visited the Mystic Seaport and would have liked to spend more time in the area. Did not use any of the facilities since they were a fair distance from our site. We would stay here again.
Price reflects Passport America. Checking in was very easy and fast. We were assigned site no. 41, a long pull-through, next to the bathrooms and laundry. Our site was a little un-level latterly. Bathroom and showers were very clean. WiFi was marginal, especially slowing down dramatically mornings and evenings. Some minor fly issues but manageable. Staff are all fantastic. We would stay here again.
A lot of trees and hilly. Parking is on gravel. Our site was a long pull-through that was fairly level. Acorns bombed the RV all night. Bathrooms, although clean, are in need of updating. Very fast and free WiFi. Excellent cable TV. We would stay here again.
Price reflects Good Sam's discount. There is a weekly rate available. Don't follow your GPS if using Hwy 31W. It's best to use Ring Rd. from the north or N. Mulberry St. from the south. We were assigned Site 33, a long pull-through which was very un-level front to back. Good utilities. There are several full-time residents who go to work very early. If you are a light sleeper their trucks are pretty loud. Some train and highway noise as well. Very convenient to E-town, Fort Knox and Bardstown. We enjoyed the Heaven Hill and Makers Mark Distilleries along with the Civil War Museum in Bardstown. Highly recommend the Heaven Hill Trolly Tour.
Rate reflects Passport America. This no frills park is very convenient for visiting Branson, Ozark, and Springfield. There are several full-time residents. The park grounds are very well maintained. Dogs were seen off-leash on several occasions and not picked up after in some cases. Low water pressure. Our Verizon aircard worked very well when hooked to the amplifier and external antenna. Very friendly staff! We will stay here again.
Rate reflects Passport America with tax. It is highly recommended that you do not use your GPS for directions. From I-70 take Exit 28 and go south on Missouri County Road F. Travel approximately 6.5 miles. You will see a sign on the right directing you to tun left on E. Cline Rd. Travel about 1.5 miles to the park. The "resort" is off the beaten path and somewhat isolated. If you have a large rig, do not turn up the hill to the office. Park and walk up! We were assigned one of the pull-through's near the lake and on the hillside that was somewhat un-level side-to-side. All of the hookups are in the very back of the sites so you might need extra sewer and water hoses. Good electric but we did have a short power failure. Some dust from folks driving fast on the gravel roads. Very quiet and no lights making the park great for sleeping. Bathrooms and showers were clean. We would stay here again only if traveling this way.
Price reflects two days of Passport America rate and two days of full price. First the good stuff: Very convenient to the city of Casper. Easy to find. Long pull-thus. I try not to slam parks too hard when I write reviews but in this case, I have no choice. When we went into the office to check in, we were greeted warmly by the two ladies at the desk. We knew that we must pay the full price after the PA days but when I asked about further discounts for the next two days. A gentleman behind the counter jumped in the conversation and in no uncertain terms let us know that we get NO further discounts. OK, fine. My wife asked what other discounts we could get for the whole four days thinking that the military rate would be better. Again, the man very rudely said that we can't get any further discounts. There may have been some communication issues but the gentleman could have been a little more diplomatic. There are a lot of folks living here long term and in some RV's that, to put it mildly, have seen better days. Some have a lot of junk laying around, unpainted plywood skirting, batteries sitting on the ground and other eye-sores. I saw at least three dogs running around off leashes and many more barking excessively into the evening. Over priced for a long, but very narrow parking site on gravel. I no shade, very low water pressure, no tables, barking dogs running around and a lot of city noise. Did I mention dust? Yep, got that too. We will not stay here again.
Rate reflects Disabled Veteran Pass. We stayed in site B-18, handicapped, back in, water/electric. No sewer. Nice park in a beautiful and historic part of Oregon. Very close to Newburg. Fred Myers has cheapest fuel in town. Toured the Evergreen Aviation and Space Museum which we highly recommend. We will be back.
Another change to checking in at the Travel Center. If you have made a reservation, stop there first where they will give you a pass. The staff has placed cones in sites that are for reserved guests and you just select the one you want. Good power and water pressure. Seafood buffet was just OK and not really worth the price. Next time through here we'll just park out in the trucker's area boondock. Most of the folks out there looked like they had set up for the duration anyway.
Rate reflects Passport America discount. We stay here often when visiting family in the area. There was no one in the office when we arrived but the list on the board told us where to go. We were in site #52 and all parking in that row are very, very close together. Water pressure seems to have gone downhill since we were last here. Tried to use our filter and just got a trickle in the coach. Bathrooms, although clean sure could use an updating.
Every time we stay here, we see new improvements. Trees are being trimmed, old trailers are being removed and the full-time residents are really taking pride in the park. Management should be commended for their hard work. We'll be back soon.
Rate reflects military and cash discount. Nice, basic park with very enthusiastic and helpful owners. We just spent one night but would use this park for more time in Roswell. Close to downtown and restaurants. Some train noise and stock yard smell. Wi-Fi was adequate. Good Verizon cell signals. Sites are a little close together. Propane is sold and at a very reasonable price.
Price reflects having the Texas State Parks Pass. If you have never been to Goliad SP you definitely owe yourself the treat of visiting one of the best parks in the state park system. Check-in at the office was painless. We were given our choice of three sites in the full-hookup, all pull-through in the Karankawa Camping area. All sites have very reliable and strong 50 amp service. Our Verizon air card signal was very weak most of the time. We didn't use the bathrooms but when I looked in the men's room it was freshly cleaned. The staff at the park go above and beyond to make your stay pleasant and informative. The walking tours of the Mission and wildlife are highly recommended. The last reviewer implied that the golf course in in the park. Not so, it's a few miles away and has very reasonable green fees. The town of Goliad is one of the friendliest places you will ever find and has more going for it that just about anywhere we have been. We came over from San Antonio for the County Fair and Rodeo, which has been rated in the top five rodeo's in the country. On the 2nd Saturday of each month is Goliad Market Days and should not be missed. Restaurants in town: The Empresario; highly recommended, especially for lunch. Blue Quail Deli; great sandwiches. La Bahia Mexican; not recommended. The Hanging Tree; good place for supper.
Rate reflects Passport America. This is our third time staying at Riverside, and we have enjoyed it each time. This time we had a back-in site that was shaded by one of the large live oaks. We did some laundry, and machine prices we very reasonable. Bathrooms are not great but adequate and could use some updating. One potential problem we see is that there is a building just outside of the park that is being renovated, and it will be a "biker" bar. We don't have any problem with bikers, but the noise from the bar might become a problem. We will stay here again.
Rate reflects the $6 day use fee. Very nice RV sites right on the 2nd fairway of the golf course. Sites are nicely spaced with very good electrical power and water pressure. Grass in the center of the loop is a little sparse since this area has not had very much rain this year. Golf course is in fair shape. Didn't get to meet the hosts as they never came around to say howdy. (We host in state parks and always try to greet new campers when they arrive at the park.) Great place to get away and relax. We would stay again.
Price reflects Passport America rate. Just a very basic park, no amnesties to speak of and very hard to maneuver a large RV around the road. One night was OK but I would not stay any longer. Dogs were running all over the place and several piles of their business were seen. Missed the entrance to the park and had to go all the way into town to turn around. Couldn't get anyone to answer the phone both times we called. Camp host was very friendly. I think we would pick a different place next time.
Registration was a piece of cake. Owner and his wife met us at the front door, got us checked in and then led us to our site. A large, level pull-through with very good power and water pressure. The park has a lot of rigs that appear to have been here for some time. Some of the rigs are in need of repair and a general cleanup of the park would make for a better appearance. Some road noise. Wi-Fi worked but was in and out a lot. Our Verizon air card had 4-bars with the external antenna connected. We would stay here again.
Rate reflects Passport America. Nice stop-over park while traveling through this park of AZ. Very easy check-in with super friendly staff. Plenty of information about the local area in the office. Follow the directions when hooking up power in the "old" area of the park. Wi-Fi is $2 a day but we did not use it.
Spent two nights. Rate reflects Passport America. We were charged an additional $5 a day for "electrical surcharge" which comes out to .21 cents an hour. We thought that was a little steep for electric service. All other reviews apply.
Spent a month here, our fourth visit. Rate is based on four weeks plus one day at $35. Very convenient for visiting the nearby National Parks. There are still several full-time residents, some with very old rigs. Management is slowly getting rid of them. Very clean park except for some of the residents not cleaning up after their dogs. I had to clean up poo three times. I complained about that problem and another resident letting their dogs run around. One of them darned near bit me! The next day they were gone. Several times during our stay we had to extend and management was very responsive and helpful. We will return.
Rate reflects Passport America discount. Very convenient for visiting the Napa Valley. Within walking distance to downtown Calistoga. Bathrooms were clean but could us some updating. Water pressure is very low at our site and in the restrooms. Wi-Fi intermittent.
This is a great place to stop-over when traveling on I-40. Checking in at the visitor center was painless. Get their pod-cast when you tour Homolovi II ruins. Adds another dimension to a great learning experience. Site was fairly level with great water pressure. We'll be back.
Pool still not heated. When checking in, the desk clerk gave us a coupon for one free DVD rental and a welcome package with some free goodies. Definitely not a destination park but good for a couple of nights. Rate reflects Passport America including tax and 50 amp site.
Rate reflects Disabled Vet discount. One of the best Corps parks we have visited. Very large, well spaced sites with picnic tables and fire rings. Some sites have shelters over the tables. We were in #80, with full hookups. View of Lake Waco is great. We will return for sure.
Rate reflects monthly. This is our second time staying here, this time for three months. The park is about 15 miles from downtown San Antonio, away from all the traffic and noise of the city. Getting to the park is very easy off I-35. Yes, you have to drive down a long gravel road but it’s worth it to be “in the country”. Quiet, secluded and dark at night is exactly what we like. Has an outstanding manager: going above and beyond the call of duty to make your stay here the best it can be. We’ll be back in November.
This park is centrally located for touring the local historical sites including the Fannin Battlefield and the Presidio La Bahia, in addition to the mission in the park. Staff is outstanding. While here make sure you take in the town of Goliad including the walking tour, the Hanging Tree and Courthouse. If you like a little libation, Ervie Jay’s Beer Garden is a local watering hole that is not to be missed. The Empresario restaurant is open for breakfast and lunch and is outstanding. The Hanging Tree is also good. One of the best state parks in Texas! A $3 a day per person entrance fee is charged in addition to the camping fee.
Nice park which is convenient for visiting the Fredericksburg area. Sites are pretty close together in the "upper" section (we were in #87). Sewer connection is in a strange location, and I almost ran over it. Caps were broken by someone who did just that. We will be back.
Rate is with AAA discount plus tax. Good overnight stop on the way somewhere else. We made reservations several months in advance. Upon arrival we noticed that the owner had scratched out one site for us and put us in a less desirable one. No big deal unless we were staying longer. All sites are a little tight and very close to each other. Laundromat closes at 7 PM. Checkout time is strictly enforced. We might stay again but would look for something a little nicer.
Price reflects AAA discount. Very easy check-in. Site was fairly level. Low water pressure. Electric was good. WiFi was weak at times. A little pricey, but it is the only gig in town. Took the afternoon 3.5 hr. tour and it was well worth the money. We would return.
A lot of improvements have been made since our last stay here. Although there are a lot of long-term residents and some very old rigs still in the park, most of them have been removed from the entrance area. Trees have been pruned, a fence has been removed and some landscaping has been done. Bathrooms are still bad and need improvements. It does look like management is working to improve the park. Electrical boxes are very low to the ground making it hard to hookup a surge protector which is recommended in the park brochure. All hookups are in the very back of the sites. Bring sewer hose extensions if you have a large 5th wheel. Overpriced considering the bathroom conditions and no pool. Since we have family and friends in the area, we’ll be back but will keep looking for alternatives.
Nice park when visiting the Eugene area. We parked in Site #6 which is a very large pull-through. Bathrooms were in need of updating and a good cleaning. There are plans to add 60 more sites with new bathrooms with showers. Camp hosts were outstanding. Great hiking along the river. We will be back.
This is a “membership” park that accepts nonmembers with both a nightly and monthly rate. There is no weekly rate and our price reflects the monthly rate. Electricity is included in all rates. We stayed here for two months while having some medical issues taken care of in Bend. The park is basically a huge field right next to Highway 97 with railroad tracks very close as well, which makes for plenty of noise. The park staff is fantastic, who bend over backward to help make your stay a pleasant one. There is propane available, movie rental and fax service that can be used for free. We were parked in the very last row and at times we had power outages, especially when air conditioners were being used. I highly recommend plugging into a surge protector rather than directly into the park’s power. Mine kicks off my power at, I believe 104 volts and we got there several times. Water pressure can be low at times as well. Wi-Fi very, very weak at times, especially in the evening. The park is close to several Central OR attractions including Newberry Volcanic Monument and two OR scenic byways. Makes sure you follow the rules especially the 5 MPH and the limit on the size of patio mats. Pets cannot be left unattended at anytime and the rule is strictly enforced. We would stay here again.
One of the nicest parks we have ever stayed at in a long time. Check-in was super simple; we were escorted to our site and then the workamper (can't remember his name) then gave us a quick orientation of the park and local area. Good power, great water pressure (they have built-in regulators) and the park is quiet. As most folks know, KOA really means Keep On Adding, and this place is no different. But the park was darned near full the night we stayed there so they must be doing a lot of things right. Would I stay here again? Maybe, if nothing else is available.
Price reflects the four night Passport America rate. Not much has changed since our last visit here. Restrooms, although clean could use some updating. Water pressure was very low. Since we have family in the area, we will be back.
Rate is based on $175 weekly. We were pleasantly surprised on our return to what is now called Blackstone North RV Park. The new owners have made several improvements since our last visit including painting, removing some of the old beat-up rigs and generally sprucing things up a bit. Although the bathrooms were fairly clean this time, they still could use a remodel but I believe the management will get to that in due time. Go slow when entering and exiting the park as there is a fairly large dip onto Blackstone Ave. This park is a good place to stay when visiting the Fresno area. We will stay there again.
Price reflects Passport America rate. Nice park in a great location. We had some mix up with our reservation, but everything got worked out. Bathrooms could definitely use an upgrade, but they were clean. If you have a roof mounted satellite dish and are parked against the fence next to the golf course, you might have some trouble getting a signal. Depends on the time of year. We'll go back again.
If you have to stay in Fresno, this place is OK. Tight turns getting into the park: go slow. The bathrooms were very bad! Looked like they hadn't been cleaned in a long time. A lot of old and junky looking RVs parked there for the long term. Before parking in your assigned site, look it over. Our space had several bolts sticking out of the cement pad left by the previous resident that had been there for a long time.
One of the nicest state parks we have been in. Large sites, well spaced and free of any trash. Bathrooms were spotless everyday we were there. Great hiking and biking trails. Outstanding hosts who love their jobs and it shows. Would have rated a 10 if there was sewer hookups.
This review is being written for members of Passport America and may or may not apply to others. We called to make reservations and we were told that we didn't need one, after we said we would be using our Passport America membership. After getting to the park, we were charged $20 a night for one of the pull-thrus but the rate should have been $12.48 a night. When I questioned the manager about this he said he has raised his rates. My wife asked why we couldn't have one of the river sites. The manager said that those were more expensive and we couldn't have one of those at our rate. After talking it over we got our money back and left. Be careful pulling to the park. Very steep gravel driveway!
This was our second stay in the park and we always enjoy our visit. Most of the spaces are very long and roomy. The sites in the lower loop are not very level but can be overcome with some shoring. We were Site 14 with 30 amp service. Had to use a 30 amp extension cord for electric hookup. A lot of folks were parking on the grass and on the roads which seems to be allowed by the hosts. Also, they allow you to dump your grey water tanks on the ground. We'll be back.
Very nice park with very nice views of the lake. If you are going to visit Carlsbad Caverns from here, allow extra driving time. Hwy 180 through Carlsbad is being worked on and the traffic is very bad. Take the Relief Route (Happy Valley Road, Hwy 524) around the city instead. Windy! Would stay here again.
Price reflects NP Access Pass. Park is very easy to find but follow the directions sent to you with the reservations. My Garmin GPS wanted me to go down a very small road where I would have hgh-centered at a railroad crossing. This is a great park with all facilities needed bu us for our short 2-day stay. We were in A-19 by the lake. We'll be back.
A little hard to find if you take the wrong exit, thank you Garmin. Be sure to take exit 106 and follow the signs. JB's is a small park tucked back in the woods off of I-30. You do get some road noise from I-30 but not bad. The pull-through sites are very large and spaced nicely. Laundry facilities are in the restroom which were all clean and well maintained. Very nice stop on our way west.
Price reflects National Access Pass. Beautiful park in a great location. They are working on the road leading to the park so if you are coming in the next month or so, be careful. We originial had site 57, a pull-thru, but the angle is not good for a long 5th wheel. The host moved us to #45 which was great. In fact, most of the pull-thru's are not great for large 5er's. Back-in sites are long and at a 45 degree angle, so backing is easy. We'll be back!
Nice park with all amenities that we needed for our short stay in the Savannah area. Bathrooms could use a coat of paint but were clean. Wi-Fi was very week at our site but strong at the office. Our Verizon air card work good at our site. Cable TV worked but only got a couple of stations. We used our antenna which was much better with several stations coming in on HD.
Resort? That's a stretch. We came here for one night to meet some friends on our way north. We were given a site that was very short. We had to use a 30 amp extension cord to connect our electric. After a very hard rain almost the complete site was under water. Very, very over priced! Fortunately, we got the Passport America rate. Our friends have been here a month and can't wait to leave. Won't be back.
First, I want to say that we have been workampers at Cody’s RV Park for the winter season. The owner has two or three couples who help him run the park during the winter season, some of which have been coming here for several years. That being said, the owner has encouraged me to make this review as fair and objective as I can. This is a Passport America park which is good for your first night stay. The owner also gives a discount of ½ off the first night to disabled veterans and the first night free to active duty military personnel. Cody’s is located north west of Spring Hill in a quiet, rural setting but is only a short driving distance from shopping, sight-seeing, golf and dining. The owner is making numerous improvements to the park including renovation of the pavilion, building a new storm shelter (just in case), bathroom remodeling and site improvements. Washers and dryers are available along with free WiFi that now covers the entire park. The ice machine is pay-on-the-honor-system. The swimming pool, hot tub and sauna are located behind the rental house at the south west end of the park. Not very convenient for other park residents but it is available. The pavilion has a large screen TV with Direct TV and a computer available for checking your email and surfing the web. The owner is in the process of completely renovating the web site so use the phone when making reservations. Reservations are highly recommended during the “snow-bird” season. Also, it is a good idea to call ahead on your day of arrival to let the staff know what time you will arrive. There are several full-time residents in the park and some very old trailers there also. The owner is removing the old equipment as the residents move and then upgrading the parking site. All-in-all, you will find Cody’s friendly, affordable and accommodating to your needs.
The MO State Park web site indicates they offer a discount to disabled veterans (Access Pass) but the campground host didn't know anything about any discounts. The bathrooms need attention ASAP. Paint is peeling off the walls and ceilings, shower stalls and curtains have mold on them and there are spider webs everywhere. A lot of litter in the park. I picked up a shopping bag full of stuff in the sites around us. We would go back but use our trailer's facilities exclusively.
Very convenient for shopping at Cabella's. Please drive slow when it's dry...dust. WiFi worked great. Water was still on, but was told it is normally shut off Oct. 1st. Price reflects Good Sam discount and winter rate.
