I never give a 10 where there is no trash pickup, but this park is so nice and simple it gets a 10. Bring your own amenities. Not a resort park, yet. Restful and quiet even though it is near the interstate. No trains. Finding it is a bit of a challenge, I-20 eastbound exit 533 follow access road; westbound exit 536 cross over and follow access road. Already have reservations for later this month. A park that needs our support.
First off, great owners/managers, just plain nice people. Some sites a little different; they are covered (under shelters). Most seem to live there full time and very friendly. The owners are more interested in your comfort. I just pulled along side a fence, and the owner helped me drop the towed. He said he would get the money later. Had to find his wife on day two. Would stay again. Only gave it an 8 because there are no amenities and no trash pickup.
A nice park; needed 30 ft of sewer hose. Water pressure very high. Brand new owners last week. Very nice young couple but they know nothing about RVing. En route within a hour of arrival lady was freaking out getting my credit card info. Many labor Parker's and leave the trailer here months at a time. No pull thrus. No trash pickup. I'd stay again but I would be hesitant due to the inxperience..
These people, it appears, are changing to a park model (cabin) park. They are doing a lot of repairs. Had to struggle to get to office for a receipt and then they could not provide one. They say they pickup trash bags daily. They just don't say which day is daily. RVers appear to be a necessary evil. Could be a great park, but I won't be back.
This was for a rally, having stayed here before I did not give it much of a chance. But it was one of the best rallies ever. You have to work at it but everything came together. Not for a big club we only had 26 of our members present.
I know they get 10's but it really is not a ten park. In fact it really isn't in Meridian, it is in Marion, it will mess with your GPS. Owner is a nice guy, but this about nice parks. No trash pickup, small space, cable with 10 channels, lots of workers who leave early in the morning, a 10 I don't think so.
Nice park but the staff is typical KOA. Nickel and dime you to death. Impossible to really level a coach. Heavy rain, not their fault but effected my rating. Only connected electric and cable TV. Probably would pass on iPads again.
It is all the good remarks others have made, but Management are Dog Nazis. Dogs must go to the dog walk, even in the middle of the night. One must not stop en-route to the dog walk. Not very realistic, especially if you get the big lecture from the owner or manager while his or her dog is running loose. If don't have a dog everything is OK. Not me however, I won't even drive by the place.
Hated the place. They put a wrist bracelet on everyone like being a patient in a hospital. Large, large park with everyone running around in golf carts. Biggest hazard are speeding employees in carts. They make their money selling booze and food. Could not wait to leave.
A little pricey for what you get. Ended up here by accident as I reserved in the other park the GPS said we had arrived, I did not question it. Nice friendly owners, but my wife did not like it. May not stay again.
Mixed review, staff very friendly and helpful. Sites not level and level with difficulty. Ended up in a 30amp site, my fault. Wi-Fi good and useful. No trash pickup and dumpster out of the way for departure. Only real complaint was dogs allowed to run loose and the owners do not pickup after them. I have two dogs but control them and pickup but I ended up picking up for the roaming dogs. Not much to do in the area but a restful park. I will return.
Fee is a rally fee, regular $50.00 with their extras. May not be worth it. I have an Ipod, an Ipad and a laptop so I needed three WiFi codes and put in multiple times. A real pain. Construction with lots of backup beeping in the AM. Lots of "Temporarily closed for maintenance" signs: so much so, the laundry was almost useless, even the coke machine. Lots of FEMA trailers, lots of permanents, so much so the school bus even comes in the park. Great rally room and again nice staff. Given a choice this park is ok with qualifications. No trash pickup, this costs a point in ratings automatically.
I listed the park as not being pet friendly due to the BURRS. They were beyond bad. Park is ok for an overnight if you don't have a dog. There are no amenities. I will not stop again because $30.00 is not worth the stop. Trash goes to three over filled trash containers at the entrance down the hill. Nice owner on site. It just needs help: a Texas roadside park is just as good and free.
I have stayed here a few times since the present owner took over. It has gone down hill. It is nothing more than a labor camp, dozens and dozens of labor trailers. It is all rock and not a bit friendly for dogs or people for that matter. I have marked this RV park off my list.
I don't give tens easily but the Owner goes way out his of way to make your stay pleasant. I commented that I take a major RV Park point away for trash pickup and my trash was picked up daily. I can't say enough good about this park.
Very nice park, level and concrete. If you are considering for a Rally, be careful Management does not have a clue. Management really does not care if you stay there or not. Carts will take right away on the streets. I think they will pick you up to gamble but not sure. The BASIC amenities are excelent. There are tornado shelters designated.
My wife liked the park, but it is typical KOA (keep on adding). Sites are gravel and not really level. No trash pickup. Over night stop OK. If you use the Oklahoma turnpike remember if you take of $75.00 for fuel you will need two credit cards. Using the same card twice tells them you are using a stolen card. Joplin, would stay again.
While a bit pricey, this park is located in a area that really does not appear secure, but is actually very secure compared to others in the area. There are no real amenities, however trash cans between sites is nice. IT IS VERY QUIET (except for fireworks on the 4th). I will stay again.
Great physical park, but it is run by people who have never been in an RV. The rally room has NO amenities, no sink, no range, no oven, no ice. They think everyone will go to the golf course to eat if not in their coach. Then I wanted to make reservations for a rally a month plus away. They wanted me to pay in advance for all of the attendees on my credit card. I don't think so. If I recall, the phrase is Sayonara.
Perhaps it is better than a wide spot in the road, but then again maybe not. For heaven's sake don't drive through the park. There are speed bumps about every 60 feet. I think controlling speed is important, but this is plain dumb. A guy in an Aggie shirt took us into our site, but he couldn't give us a receipt.
Well, if you are not with a rally and want to get away from it all, this is the place. I never did find the showers, but the rest rooms are not heated. The owner is wonderful and makes the place worth it; the ultimate in laid back. Verizon card worked well, but nothing supplied by the park. If you follow a gps to get here you get a surprise; how about a bridge with 7500 per axle? I'd come back with a rally. Rate is $20 if paid in cash.
Campground is ok. Stayed for a rally found the spaces very small with awning overhang of the neighbors sewer and utilites in some cases. The restrooms/showers are a bit primitive, but ok. Would I stay again? Perhaps. The ladies who run the park are a bit different and may have been dealing with RVer's for too long. I would prescribe a break or retirement. Lots of rules.
Rate is a Rally Rate. Cable TV only at premium sites. That not withstanding, this is a GREAT park. I told them about RV Park Reviews and recommended stools or seats in the shower room. I suspect there will be stools on the next visit. Management could not be more helpful. All sites concrete and NOT crammed together. Exceptional rally room and commercial kitchen. Our group booked next years rally here.
Rate was for the Fair period and had admission included. An OK place to stay. Trash pickup almost at your door. Only negative was a helicopter ride operation that flew repeatedly (every 5 minutes from noon to 9 at night) dangerously low overhead. Manager very helpful.
Nice place park on grass more of a campground than an RV park. Lots of seasonals and permanents so reservations are a good idea. GPS directions can get screwed up. Park is south of Hwy 50. Rate is Passport. I would stay again.
I didn't give this place a chance. The signage on country road left a lot to the imagination. The entry road said no trucks; I'm a truck. I would expect to see a lot of people from "Deliverance." To provide even more concern, the web site is questionable. I would not even go close to this place again. Don't really know the rate. We did not stay at this park.
Noticed several 9's which is tough to give on this one. Extremely tight parking, lots of burs for the pets, what wifi? Cable tv has limited channels. While I did not use the restrooms or showers which looked clean but very very old. Only real saving grace is this is the only game in town. Would stay again but only in a pinch.
A park can't get a 10 without trash pickup. Marina Bay is an excelent park. Better than average TV, Good Wifi and clean. Recreation and restaurants are close by. I have and had problems with the address. I put it in my gps and ended up in yacht dock area. 36 ft long plus a towed going through limited parking lots with boats and things you can bang up. Plus low hanging trees, a bit exciting for a few minutes.
Wow, this is a work camp. It looked like 90 percent of the units were trailers and 5th wheels and were work campers. The cable TV was terrible and the wi-fi was nonexistent. Could be a bit muddy when it rains. Best get there during the day. We left and came back and had a hard time finding the park after dark. Then had trouble finding our motorhome in the dark. I would not go near the showers and rest rooms. I gave it a five out of charity. Signage weak. The highway from Lafayette was TERRIBLE, concrete squares placed together causing a bump,bump,bump ride.
No real amenities except free laundry, but if I were going to park for the rest of my life it would be here. Watching the river you can work on your blood pressure, getting it to pump. Did not give it a 10 because for a 10 you have to feed me.
I read the old reviews, and the writers sure have a different view of parks than I. This is a field work camp. If it had been raining it would have been a muddy mess. A one night stay would be OK, maybe. I did not feel like a member of the family as several posters said. Dumpster was full and trash was left at the site. It was expensive, but there is not much in the area. But it is close to a Flying J.
What a change! I posted the beautiful rating on this park two years ago. It is still a beautiful park, but! We just left there after seven days. It is now a work camp. All of the sewer camp sites are taken by workers' trailers. They leave at 0630, honking to pickup buddies. Most units sit idle on weekends. There are equipment trailers at the sites. The park does not care about tourists or real campers. The shower/rest rooms are terrible. Showers have one control for water flow. The rooms are always wet and not cleaned. Electric service was not always reliable. The tank dump had no working water to wash out the hose. This place really went down hill.
Great Owners/Managers, park is an old KOA a little used but still OK, great TV, marginal Wi-Fi, but the people make up for a lot. Left a day early, but we will be back some day. Near a lot of activities.
Staff is very nice. Most sites are permanent residents or at least paid for the year. This is really a marina with RV sites on the side of a hill. Rocky and little grass on the sites and unpleasant to walk on. Very secure. Dump site is not level, but they will pump your tanks. VERY HIGH water pressure and will cause leaks in your water system. Only 3 local TV stations. Interestingly, the only RV park I ever stayed in with their own cemetery. All shade so DirectTV a problem and no XM radio. Would like to come back but probably will not.
What a great park. Only spent a night enroute to a FMCA rally and having a vehicle problem. The same name RV Center next door was wonderful with their help. The park has great WiFi. Can't say enough good things about the place.
Really a nice park but you have to make a choice you can have entertainment Sat TV & Sat radio or shade. I opted for Sat TV & radio; big mistake for July in Texas. Very Hot!! The staff are great, my wife locked both sets of keys to the Towed, with it attached. But the Park officer contacted the Chev dealer in Cooper and they came out and opened it. Keep in mind, there is nothing, I mean nothing in Cooper, just a Chev dealer and he was great. Not crowded. But remember it is July in Texas.
OK, it is a bit out of the way, but it is a great park. Great elec, water, sewer, Wi-Fi, cable and transportation to loose a few bucks. People are very nice. Tornado shelter is in the main casino so if it happens kiss it goodbye because you will never get there. Wonderful park.
Right now this park is an island of serenity. The electrical connections are good;the water pressure is good; the TV is extra but good; there is easy in and out (no pull thrus); the people are very nice; the store is good; security is good. What else can you ask of a park?
On the whole a very nice park. We spent five days there. If you want a discount you had best remember to ask, they sure don't offer to tell you. During the Winter months one would think they would offer. If you don't have a Direct type tv antenna you will wish you did if you like to watch tv. There is no cable and limited number of local channels. There is not a lot to do except relax. Couple of great local 5 star restaurants now in Marble Falls. Breakfast (free) on Wednesdays and potluck on Sunday. We will stay again, but may look around a bit.
This should be shown as a great park, but for me MH utilities had to be connected on an extreme slope; the grass cutter with a weed eater cut up my dump hose which I discovered when dumping, ABC gave me 10% off a new hose. Big deal ! One would think a park this nice would have more than 12 cable channels. One can not be going to shows all the time.
On the whole a pretty nice place, the long term people are in one spot and the in and out in another area. My only gripe: They sell pizza; it is very good; they deliver to the site which is very nice, but I felt uncomfortable giving the Work Kamper three bucks for delivering a nine dollar pizza. I did not want to insult a nice person. I will stay here again and I am not certain about the nightly rate.
Typical KOA, only complaints are it is a shade tight for a big rig and they charge for every little item, i.e. playground is $3.00 per child. They have a very nice fenced dog run, I guess I paid for it when I told them I had a dog. Great Work Kampers. I'd stay again.
These people deserve a 10 for being the only campground in the middle of nowhere. Great people (owners & staff) and a very nice park. Lake is low,but that is not their fault. Good wifi. Restful location and the 1850 town is nice. But this truly six miles from the end of the earth. I would stay here again.
Had to give it a 7 due to many factors. I never saw restrooms but they had to be there. Best thing about the park is the wifi and the web site, it is beautiful. It is a shame there is little comparison. I have been close before, but six feet is too close for units. W/E/cable on far side of coach and sewer on the opposite side. Staff are typical Yankees and she loves signs. Cable is only 11 channels. I doubt if I would come back, only in a pinch. Best thing is Alpine Restaurant in town, dinner meal a real value.
Nice park except on a hillside, slide almost hit the ground and one needed a giant step in and out of the RV. Draining the tanks was tough. Nice staff. Only reason to be here is the Custer Memorial and the alleged shootout site. There seems to be a bit of conflict in the location. Other than the aforementioned, this is the Crow Indian Reservation, the whiteman is really not welcome in the casino and besides it smells really bad from smoke.
Gave this a 10, wanted to give a 9.5 only because there are no seats in the showers. A great park, we were in the E row which is the north most row. Beautiful dog run, fenced. Only negative save the seat is if you are in row E, a north wind brings some stable smells but still acceptable. Will stay again and we stayed a week.
Called and after reading reviews I called back and cancelled. When I drove by it appears very rustic; over grown desert type terrain. Their vehicle gas was posted at 30 cents more than everyone else in the area. They are not all that close to the parks, but you get the idea they are right in the parks.
Excellent park. Great Wifi plus T Mobile full service. Good cable and Direct TV worked fine. On Monday and Thursday evening they have a chuck wagon dinner and concert, really worth the price for the meal and the concert is free. One of the best nights of our trip so far. Stayed five nights. Neat small town, emphasis on small.
Park is a bit crowded, but the staff makes up for any minor shortcomings. I was waiting for a Fed-ex package and it arrived late to the point I was going to have to stay another day. They were as worried about my package as was I. Means a lot when you are on the road.
Ok for an overnight or two, but sometimes the smell is a killer. The evening and morning train is just a loud train with a whistle. Like others the lecture one gets when you pay your money is a bit boring. Big negative is hose bibs are below ground in a box. If you are older and not in great shape it is tough.
Beautiful park...pay pool..miniature golf..lots of play ground equipment..group shelters. Unfortunately terrible showers/bath, very dirty and left that way. Trash picked up. Countless deer, bobcat and other wild life. Speed limit enforced all the time. Lots of trails; fishing and nature activities. The 8 is only for the baths.
Nice quiet park, out in the hinter lands. Mid week very restful and not crowded this week. Weekends would seem to have a lot of scheduled activities. The reason for the 8 is there are only a few pull thru sites.We will stay here again.
Wonderful Owner/Operators, used to be a KOA. Only negative was the park was not full, but they parked me and then a fifth wheel so my door and awning was over their sewer hole and inches from their slide out. I would stay there again especially because of the owners.
A shade tight for a 36' MH with a toad, but the facilities and staff make up for the work to get into the pull through site. I called once for directions, the clerk was busy but saw my call and number and called me on her own, GREAT. Only negative was the walk up the hill to the office, tough for an overweight Senior. I will stay here again and again.
Pulled off road for an over night stop. Did not stop, the pool was a lovely shade of deep green. But there was another Motel/RV place down the street that had a matching green pool. Drove in and out of both.
A large roomy campground. The biggest Big Rig will fit. Rate above is a rally rate. I think there is fishing in the rear of the park. On the negative side there is no warning arriving from the north on I-35, so you overshoot and have to double back; there is NO shade and a Texas summer at 102 is grim, but not the park's fault. Would be great in October. Cable TV is about 12 channels, of which three were Spanish speaking. Staff is very nice. Will go back but in the Spring, Fall or Winter. A quiet park. Will return when it is cooler.
This is a group/family destination park. Very nice and is 18 miles north of Mineral Wells. They have a nine hold par three golf course. There is no cell reception of any type in the area. There is really no tv except for sat equiped rv's. You are close enough to a town to get forgotten supplies, but not in Perrin. The Perrin Grocery across from the Perrin Volunteer Fire Department sits as a burned out hulk.Rate is for a group. Nice owners!
At first glance it is a very nice(not great) park. Then you find lists of rules for everything and extra cost for everything. Your trash must be toted about 1/3 of a mile; rent a recumbent trike is $ 9.00 per hour; a golf cart (drivers age 18) costs $ 99.00 for three days. The pool was not open; the cafe was not open; the rec room was not open. They had a mystery night game, but no one knew anything about what was going on. Most of the park personnel we nice, but a couple probably would qualify for IRS employment. River was very very low, not the park's fault. This is a four month park as is the entire Lake Ten Killer area. A lot of full timers. It appears the park really wants to go to cabin status as they are moving in more and more nice cabins. OK, but we have stayed in better.
Well this is tough camping, they have everything. Besides what is listed they have great dinners on Monday evening. The Park people are excellent and work hard. The guests are friendly, except Snow Birds, they might consider going back north. Texans are very sensitive and should be treated politely. PS I am still looking for the lake, a small stream but no lake?
Great little park out in the boonies. If you have health problems, you can be in trouble. It is 13 miles by road to Johnson City and all they have are two band aids and an asprin. That was my only thought. Everyone was great, it is a nature area so you have to think roughing it (yeah, in an RV) The normal antenna TV was very good, had 7 channels. Only gave it an 8 because of a long walk to the showers and rest rooms. Also a long walk down to the river, but worth it.
The restroom/shower room were cleaner then CLEAN ROOMS in the electronics industry. The manager was wonderful standing in the pull thru site late a night for me. A bit small but still a nice place. Plus the town is interesting.
Very good park. Nice people. Easy location to find and park in. Only gripe, there are small foot stools in the shower. No place to sit if you are tall, big or normal. Would work great if in Japan, but a bit small for normal Americans. I showered in the RV. But I will stay here again.
The owner was kind enough to come find us when we were lost trying to locate the campground. This would have gotten them a 10 Plus, but with only two shower rooms available and they were COLD and my shower head had a split in the pipe before the shower head, thus 80% of the water went against the wall. Thus a generous 8. The Host was somewhat less than helpful, not rude just nothing. The owner is a great person. They have been able to get spaces where no space is available.
For what it is, it is great. We spent New Year's Eve in the park. No one else just us. The shower was warm, the space heated and done in sort of early Boy Scout. But a port is a storm it was great. Truck stop sounds not far away, but liveable. Some loud screaming animals in the middle of the night, but liveable. All in all, needing a spot the rest it was great.
