Passport America rate. As others have mentioned, this is a fairly new park with no shade at present. However, trees have been planted and when they grow, it will be very pleasant. Large sites, most seem to slope down. Several cabins available. Restrooms are large and clean. Showers are well thought out, with folding wooden doors for added privacy. Water pressure is excellent. Wi-Fi was very good. Limited cable stations. Campground is located within walking distance of Shenandoah Caverns (up fairly steep hill) as well as a gift shop. No sidewalks but wide grassy shoulder allowed safe walking. There is a small restaurant in the premises. Staff was very pleasant. Only negative is proximity to the highway and constant road noise. Would definitely stay here again.
I can't say enough about the friendly helpful owners of this park; they go the extra mile. This isn't the typical KOA though; there are many long term campers, and what appear to be rental homes on the property. The road that brings you to the rear sites is horrible, uneven with large potholes; no easy way to get around them. There are sites near the pool that appear to be a bit close together. A little shabby, but very clean with 24 hour staffing. Laundry is large and reasonably priced. The neighborhood isn't too bad compared to others in NOLA. There is a paved recreational path on the levee across the street, though access is up a steep incline. Wi-Fi is fairly slow and spotty. We didn't use the shuttle but it seemed to be full every day. The pool was due to be open in April.
This park was very overpriced for what was available. Wireless internet was not working anywhere in the park although it was advertised. The pool wasn't open this early in the season. Other reviewers noted much lower prices last fall, so I'm not sure why we were charged so much. We did have a pull through with full hookups but the price still seemed high. TV reception was OK with only about a dozen channels. Sites are fairly level gravel. There is a small brook circling the park with a wooden bridge that leads to a small fishing pond. There is a nature trail which wasn't quite ready for foot traffic this early but I still enjoyed the walk in the woods. I'm sure it's quite nice in the summer. The big plus was the updated and clean bathrooms. A very pleasant surprise, but still not worth $50.
I will preface this review by saying that as a snowbird traveling in early spring, I am looking for different things than a family camping during the summer would, and this is reflected in my comments. Wireless was sporadic and TV reception was poor. There seem to be many permanent residents in this park. The sites are uneven gravel, and the one we were assigned was difficult to back into because of the sharp angle, although we were told we could take the adjacent site if it would be easier. The restrooms are OLD and need major updating. The space between the shower door and frame was quite large, so there wasn't a lot of privacy in the dressing area, and after running the water for several minutes, it wasn't hot so I gave up and skipped my shower. There is some evidence of work being done at the game room. Probably wouldn't stay there again off season
This is one of the most beautiful parks we've ever been in over a decade of camping. The staff is very friendly. It appears to be mostly long-term snowbirds. It is very pet friendly. There are supposed to be small picnic tables that convert to a bench on each site. Ours didn't have any, but several sites had 2. After 2 requests to obtain a bench , and after seeing several empty sites that did have one, I gave up. There is wireless internet, but it was slow at times. Cable had a good channel selection. There is a small pool. The laundry is clean, large, well set up and reasonably priced. The rest rooms are clean and fairly new. Just before we left, they put portable shower seats in the ladies room which I thought was very convenient. Although the surrounding neighborhood isn't the best, I would definitely stay here again.
The best thing about this campground is the 6 private full bathrooms available. Just off Rt 59 which is the main drag into Gulf Shores. Concrete pads. Wireless is iffy and you need a separate code for each device including phone and e readers. One laptop worked perfectly well-everything else was hit or miss. Friendly staff. Mainly long-term snowbirds with a sense of community for those who live here. There are scheduled activities.
We paid 5 nights at Passport America rate of $27 and 2 nights at $54. The owners and staff are extremely friendly and helpful. It's an easy 5 minute walk to the beach and about a mile from any store you may need, including an outlet mall. I would have rated this higher except for a couple things. It was clearly stated that dog were not allowed in the office, yet when I arrived to check in, the girl in the office had her dog with her. Hearing comments from a camper, it was clear this was the norm. Since I'm allergic to dogs, that was strike one. Strike 2 was the fact that the shower head in the non-handicapped ladies shower needs to be replaced because only half of it worked. There was only one toilet stall in the men's room. There are energy saving 15 minute timers in the rest rooms, but I don't think they are accurate. I think there should be some sort of night light in the rest room because I didn't feel safe walking into a dark room even though the switch was right inside the door. That being said, I would definitely stay there again.
This is the Passport America rate-normally $44/night, which is also the annual Passport membership fee, so we got a good deal, since we stayed 3 nights. The road to this campground goes through a depressed area, but it's well worth it. We were pleasantly surprised to find ourselves right on the banks of the Mississippi River, with a great view of the barges that float by day and night. There is a walkway along the river as well. Bathrooms are old, but well set up and clean. The staff is friendly and accommodating. Nice laundry area. Convenient location right across the river from Natchez MS. We would camp here again
This was a nice stop as a base to explore Chattanooga. Large laundry room which was nice to find. Wireless is pretty much useless-very inconsistent even at the office, which is why I graded it lower than I may have otherwise. Bathrooms were clean-separate showers were large and well set up. We enjoyed the peaceful setting. We would return to this campground.
This park was extremely overpriced for the time of year. Though wireless internet is "available", it's only free for 60 consecutive minutes-once you sign on, the clock starts and that's it, then they charge $5 a day!! Cable has very few stations. Bathrooms are very old, the showers have a very weird configuration where the small shower head is placed on an overhead pipe-not much pressure, the room is cold,and there is no separation between the shower and the dressing area so be careful where you put your things. The only good thing about this place was the store which was well stocked with a wide variety of items. Maybe it's better in the summer, but I won't bother going back to find out.
This is a bare bones campground. It has gravel sites which are very close together-not really room for an awning. There are 2 bathrooms, clean and well set up. It is quiet, though the trains do go by occasionally. It has minimal TV reception but lightning fast internet. It's not near anything that we could see. It's a place to sleep but I probably wouldn't stay here again.
AT first glance, this place looks iffy-right off a main road, behind a gas station, gravel sites, several old, dirty RV's. However, we were lucky enough to get a site right on the stream, which also faces a small farm with horses-it was really pretty and relaxing. The site was fairly level as well. Had we been in a site that wasn't on the stream, I would have rated it lower. Internet was spotty. Only 2 bathrooms, locked with keys hanging outside. 1 washer/dryer in 1 of the bathrooms-inconvenient . It is a good location close to highway but definitely not fancy. I would stay here again.
This campground is off the beaten path but it is worth the trip. The staff is friendly and very accommodating. Lots of trees and a small lake/stream runs through the lower level of the park. We were here off season, so not sure what it's like in the summer, though the brochure mentions many activities. At this time of year, the store was pretty empty of staples, pool was closed and no activities-would have been reasonable to offer a reduced rate. Good hot water and water pressure in the showers. Free Wi-Fi if only staying 1 night for 1 computer-need to ask for another code if you have more than 1. Would definitely stay here again.
