The forest fire missed all of South Fork and the entire town and this RV park are open for business. This campground has some monthly sites available for about $15 per night. The bathroom and shower houses have been completely remodeled and are great. The park hosts are the nicest people. Evenings are cool and the daytime temps are about 75 degrees. Many fishing areas and four-wheeler trails are open.
This is just a place along the Interstate that is OK for the night. We pulled to get out of the thunderstorm weather. This is an expensive site just for gravel with water and power. No cable, no nothing.
Nice park. They had our reservation correct. The site had dog waste in a few places, the fire pit was half full of burned wood and the barbeque pit had ashes in it. It would be nice if someone cleaned up the site between use.
Paid $14 using Passport America. About a mile off the interstate so it was quiet. There is some kind of work site located next to the campground that has heavy equipment that stated working at 5:30 a.m. I guess this is not much different than train noise or Interstate noise. We did use the laundry room and were happy they had one.
We stayed for the winter and enjoyed the park. The front part of the park is for RV's and they have 30 and 50 amp service with gravel for the RV and a concrete patio area for your awning and vehicle. There is a Winter-Texan room for activities. Security was excellent. The hosts are on site full time, and there is a gate and security cameras. They have a wonderful camp dog named Tucker. Many of the Winter Texans are involved in a variety of ministry work both in South Texas and Mexico.
RV park is located in the city next to all you need. Walmart, places to eat, auto parts store, etc. The RV park has lots of trees which gave the place a nice feel. The park is 80 percent permanent residents but they were all nice and the place is not a mess. Check-in was easy and the staff was pleasant. We used the park as a place to stay while seeing the tourist sites. The park is small and there was lots of morning noise while people went to work.
We stayed at North Shore. Loop B and C have no services. Loop A was full. Beautiful view of the mountains and lake. Very peaceful. No road noise noticable after dark when traffic stops. Sure beats staying in the city, especially if you are headed to Yellowstone.
Beautiful campground, great location to see Mt. Rushmore, Crazy Horse and drive the Custer State Park Loop (70 miles). Everything was clean, the sites are huge and the campground has six camping loops so you can pick open area, partial shade or full shade. Some loops don't have restrooms but that makes it quiet. The families with children stayed closer to the office and pool area.
We stayed here for three nights and enjoyed our stay. We had 30 amp service and water. The first two nights were very quiet. Only one other RV. On night three, ten rigs arrived between 10 p.m. and midnight. They were part of the work crew setting up for an event at the fairgrounds. The place got very busy. The office is open from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. so plan your arrival accordingly or call ahead. Staff was super to work with.
Pleasant surprise. We saw the billboard sign on the Interstate. Needed a place to stop for the evening. Found this little jewel. We arrived on a Sunday night and there was only one other RV. A police officer came by and collected the $15 around 8 p.m. The sites were wide. The power and electrical box is between two sites so you need a long water hose.
Not a very attractive place at all. We had stayed here before for a night and had a site near the front of the park. This was ok for one or two nights. This trip, all the front sites were taken by long term residents. We were directed to the back of the park and told to take any place available. The first four sites did not have any outlets in the power boxes. Of the 50 or so rigs, we appeared to be the only over-night campers.
We have been coming to this park for a number of years and always enjoy our trip. On-line reservations were easy and check-in went well. We camped in Loop G and had no issues getting into our site. The men shower in Loop G was not cleaned and the rubber shower mat had not been cleaned under in ages. The shower head was broken and not usable.
Stayed for two nights. Nice place, nice people. Our Verizon Wi-Fi card had only one bar so we could only check email. No cable but the price is great! The place is very clean and the big sites with trees are wonderful.
The name of the park has changed to Melody Lane Christian Renewal Center at Texas Rose. The front portion of the property is for RV's and the back portion has Park Model units available for rent. This is a secure park with a front gate that is closed at night and controlled by a key pad. Winter Texans fill up most of the front portion of the park. Winter Texans also have their own recreation room. The park is quiet and there are only a small number of planned activities. Many of the guests are involved with mission work within the city and some travel to Mexico. The people are great and there are some rules that go along with a Christian park. The 4-6 month rates are some of the lowest in the Mission area. If you have a desire to serve the Lord, this makes a great home base.
We stay at this park every time we pass by. The owners have the place looking great. The gravel roads are smooth and well groomed. The grass is neat as a pin. We are always greeted with a warm welcome. The Passport America rate makes this park a Super Deal! Stop by when you are in the area. You will be happy you did.
As others described, an asphalt lot located in the front of a mobile home park. OK place for a night. It is off I-40 a few blocks so the noise level is OK. We did not have any RV's on either side of us so we had plenty of room.
Only place in the area we could find to stay. Check-in was easy at the fuel counter in the Truck Stop. The park is up on the hill behind the truck parking area so it is away from the truck smell and noise. I saw 5-6 pull throughs plus a bunch of back-in sites. Good place for an overnight stop, just a little expensive. We did get TV stations on the batwing.
Spend two nights over the holiday weekend. The pool was very nice. Check-in was easy. The park was clean. Traffic in the park moves fast because there are no speed bumps. We would stay again when in the area.
Easy access off the Interstate. Check-in was easy and the person was very nice. We were assigned a nice concrete site on the East side of the park. Everything was clean and we will stay here again when passing through.
The park is clean and easy to access. We stayed in the back area using one of the nice pull-through sites. This is our 3rd stop here and we like it for an overnight stop. The pool looked nice and clean.
I like this campground because it has trees and is next to the river. The people working here have done some work on the park since we were last here. The laundry room is real nice and the playground has shiny new paint. The bathrooms and office have a new roof. The best part is the people and campers were very friendly.
Took a site in the trees to save a few dollars since we were only staying for one night. Check-in people were super nice. After getting set up, I rode my bike through the various loops near the lake. Some would be hard to back in to with a rig over 28 feet. Some have steep entry roads. I did notice that the bath house had a nice washer and dryer.
We were surprised that the park was not fully functional considering next weekend is Memorial Day. The pool was empty, the mini-golf course was covered with leaves and only one paddle boat was in operation. The lake looked real nasty. The pool is scheduled to be open on Friday. We just stopped for an overnight stay and had a site in the back that cost $36. This is really more that I want to pay for one night but there were no other options.
Nice campground with lots to do for children. There is play area, basketball, lake for fishing and a pool. The park is beautiful with lots of trees. The inner roads are gravel. The sites in the center of the park are back to back, and real close together.
Check-in was a snap and the people were very nice. We stayed in the top section and had a pull-through site for a night. Got our mail and Census form,and renewed our truck and RV tags on the same day. People in Livingston make this process a snap. No cable but we did get some TV stations on our bat wing.
This park has some of the largest sites in the area. The people were nice and check-in was easy. Electricity was 19 cents a KW. The pool and hot tub were clean and nice. The water temperature was perfect. The have a billiards hall with three tables and some exercise equipment. There was a brand new shuffleboard court with 4-5 lanes. The grass burrs are still there.
Clean park with lots of concrete and nice grass between sites. The sites are narrow but nice and long. The road through the park makes a loop with an in and out road. The road is right next to the sites so traffic noise is somewhat loud when you have your windows open. The $14 rate was Passport America. Very nice place for an overnight stop.
We are back in the RGV for a new season. This park has a new owner. A new shuffle board court is being installed. The pool is 85 degrees and the hot tub is wonderful. They added a number of large concrete sites for those who don't want to deal with grass. Lots of updating is being done and the place looks good. There are still grass burrs but they will be spraying in December and again in March so maybe the burrs will be gone by next season. The work camper staff people are nice and this place is about a mile from Expressway 83 so there is no road noise. The bird sanctuary is only 2 miles away and golf is next door. We like this place.
Signs on I-20 indicate this is a campground. We exited and drove 2.3 miles to the campground. The entrance sign said campground and motel. The last 1/4 mile leading to the campground was rough and steep. We were looking for an overnight stop and the office person indicated they did not offer overnight sites. We thanked the person and drive through the park so we could use their turn-around. We saw about 7 RV's that looked long term and 20 run-down motel rooms that did not look to be in use. We continued another 15-20 miles into Shreveport and stayed at Tall Pines RV Park that is very nice.
We enjoyed our time here in the RGV. The weather was warm but a bit windy on occasion. The people at Seven Oaks were a blast to be with and the work camper staff treated us well. The pool and hot tub were great and there were activities throughout the week. The grass burrs were a pain but lots of parks had them this season for some reason. This park has the widest spaces we have seen in Mission but they are all back-in sites. The park is about a mile south of Hwy 83 so there is no noise at night. We will be back!
Park is located about 3 miles east of town and is off the highway and down a slight hill so there was little road noise. About half the sites are in the trees or along the river and there are about 15 nice pull-through sights in the middle of the park that are in the open so you can use your satellite. The Wi-Fi worked good and the staff was very friendly. The laundry room was newly refurbished. The sell propane and firewood. This is a nice, quiet campground to spend a few days or all summer.
Very clean and quiet park. The roads are narrow and the trees are close if you have a big or long rig. Very peaceful place. Nice people. It was about 6 miles off the Interstate. You need to follow the directions on the website closely. We did a fair amount of GeoCaching in the area. Got to see a lot of the Missouri River. Going South back into Boonville is a speed trap. Coming off the bridge, the speed limit goes from 50 to 20. All the local traffic knows about this and slows down coming off the bridge.
Easy access off of Hwy 50. Easy check-in. They have lots of long pull-through sites on gravel with large grassy areas in between the sites. The laundry room was very clean and all the equipment worked well. They have a nice store and even serve ice cream.
The cement and gravel 50 amp sites were full so we had to back our 32 foot trailer into one of the grass 30 amp sites in all the trees. Lucky, there were no other campers in this area so we had lots of room to pull through into site 50. The place is a city park and has a petting zoo, lake, trails and lots of kids. The place had more than an average number of noisy campers and barking dogs which made the experience poor. It's a place for weekend campers, smokey fires, barking dogs and beautiful outdoors.
This is our third visit to the park in the past 12 months. We enjoy the people and the park is easy to get to. Our 30 amp pull-through site was easy to access and the cable TV was nice. The people are great the the rate is excellent.
We could not get reservations on-line for Friday or Saturday so we made plans for arrival on Monday and departing on Friday morning. Upon arrival at 5:30 p.m. on Monday, there was no one staffing the front gate. We noted that 1/2 of the park was closed as we drove through the open sections looking for a sight. We have a 32 foot trailer and only found 2 sights available. We stopped by the front gate house on Tuesday and again on Wednesday and never found it open. It must be to early in the season. The rate of $30 plus tax was about $10 too high for the off season. We still love to see the bay and spend time in the area.
We always have a nice stay at this campground. All 34 sites on Loop C were booked for the weekend. Only 3 campers on Loop A which is real tight for anything over 24 feet in my opinion. Loop B is for tents. Only has lukewarm water in the shower house in Loop C. The bathroom equipment was recently new.
This was a nice, clean park that is new. The owners were very nice. The roads are all new gravel and the grass is growing nicely. There are two fishing ponds. No pool or laundry yet but this is a very nice place to stay for a few nights. The campground feels like you are out in the country but town is only two miles away. Wal-Mart is two miles, Lowe's Home Improvement Store is three miles away and the main highway (Hwy 601) has banks, fast food, auto parts stores, etc. The Wi-Fi worked well, and the water, sewer and electric is all new.
We came in on a Sunday night after the office closed but the gate attendant gave us a map and our choice of 30 sites. None of the sites had an ocean view. There is an extensive cleanup operation going on at the beach but it will take a few more weeks for all the hurricane debris to be picked up. The campground mosquitoes were real bad but biking in town and on the beach was mosquito free. Our Verizon connection worked great and our site had cable. Only 20% of the sites were full but this will change as winter approaches.
We made a one-night reservation but stayed for three nights. The rate was $20 for the site and $3 for each person plus a internet reservation fee. Our total cost was $81 for three nights. We camped on the bay and enjoyed the site. You can park at the water's edge. There is no beach, only a sea wall. The water was about 2 feet deep but there were lots of jelly fish (non-sting type). We drove across the bridge toward Rockport and found a great swimming beach on the left. You can't miss it. The sign at the entrance to the park said Mosquito Advisory and they were right. We loaded up on bug spray and enjoyed our stay outside. There was some geocaching in the area so we did that too. Lots of fishing going on if you like that. The Rangers were giving talks and letting kids fish.
This is a new campground and the owner's are just getting the campground running. There are about 15 level sites that are on grass with some gravel. The roads are gravel. Access is right off the highway. This is a basic place to stay with W/E/S but no bathrooms or shower house. Our rate was using Passport America. We stayed here so we could visit the Talladega Race Museum and track.
This is a beautiful park right on the highway. This is a family run park, and the people were great. They even had a free pancake dinner for all the guests on Saturday night. The mini-golf is in great shape, and the pool is salt-water and brand new. No chlorine smell, and the pool is in great condition. We were not able to access Wi-Fi at any location.
It was supposed to be a cold, rainy weekend but we took a chance and unwinterized the trailer and went camping. Loop C was the only loop open for camping but we figured that would not be a problem. We arrived Thanksgiving day at 1 PM and all the waterfront sites with electric were full. Don't people stay home and eat turkey with the family any more? LOL. We took site C16 and got settled in. The restroom and shower house was closed for repairs. The other restroom and shower house was open but we did not use it because of the distance. It was nice to have water and electric this late in the year. I understand the camp closes on 12-3-07 for the season. The water in the lake is down so it was fun to walk along the shoreline. You could walk for miles. This is a nice place to stay.
Primitive camping for the most part. The four or so sites that had electricity were filled with camp hosts. The hosts were very nice and we got some free kindling to start our fire. The bathrooms were ok and the one shower in the restroom was clean. The water level at the lake was low but we are in a drought. The lake is small (big pond) but makes for a good swimming place for kids. The lake is a bit of a hike from most of the campsites. I guess 3/8 mile but you can drive to the lake. Lots of hiking trails. it was very quiet and the leaves were beautiful. We spent 5 nights here. I did not use the dump station because I felt I could not get my 24 foot travel trailer and truck turned around on the very small loop.
We did enjoy our stay here. Area A is out on the point and Area B is more secluded. We chose site 87 in Area B. Some of the sites are real close together and share a common entrance drive. This is a nice, clean campground. The bathrooms and showers were clean.
We decided to spend three nights here since we had stayed at Bandit's Roost last month. We initially decided to select a site in the #60 to #71 area. When we reviewed the sites, we noticed the water very low and stagnant. We drove to the other loop, #7-#21 and chose site #13. None of the sites are on the water. In fact, none of the sites with the exception of #2 and #3 are on the water. #2 and #3 are near the swimming area. The bathrooms and showers were clean. Not much to do and the lake is not close enough to see. Some of the loops were closed to camping.
We were on our way from Bristol, TN to Boone, NC driving along H421. This is a windy road. It was getting dark and we saw the blue sign for "Camping" as we were passing through town. We pulled in and noticed they had 12 sites and only 2 were taken. The camp office is at a museum and they were closed. We took site 5 and backed in on the grass. It had water, electric (We used 30 amp so I don't know about 50 amp), cable and sewer. Some of the sites had damaged cable lines. The bathrooms were locked but we did not need them. Don't know if they had showers or not. They did have some big block fire pits so we did have a fire. We decided to stay a second night and do some geocaching in the area. The fee was $20 per night. It was a reasonably clean place to stay while passing through.
Check-in went well. They had our pre-paid reservation for 4 nights. We selected a site (#52)on the river. It did not have gravel so dirt was a small issue. They did provide a wood platform for our site. The fire ring has recently be moved and was partially full of wood and ashes. The other ring site was about 4 feet away and the ashes were still there. The hosts were helpful and friendly. The pool was nice. There did have 3 washing machines and 3 dryers which we used. $1 each. The game room was very hot so it was difficult to use. The new pet area was GREAT. They have a 250 foot by 250 foot fenced ares for dogs. Our dog loved it. The Wifi did not work at our site. They told us the antenna on that side of the camp was broke. I still could not get a signal anywhere else at camp. They do have a desktop computer (Wifi) that people can use. I used it each day. The first and second days it worked fair at best. The last two days it worked much better. We are geocachers so not having Wifi was hard on us. It also made it difficult finding a place to stay later in the week. Good people, nice place, needs some gravel in a few sites, needs better Wifi. Kids would love this place. They did have some long term residents.
We had a wonderful 3-night visit to this campground as we toured the local area. Asheville, Blue Ridge Parkway, Mt. Mitchell and some Geocaching. We had site 21 which is a back-in site but perfect for our travel trailer. The place is hilly but beautiful. This has to be one of the cleanest campgrounds we have stayed at. The bathrooms and showers rated 9.8. The water pressure out of the shower head was low because of water restrictors. This is a very pet friendly place. The Wifi worked poorly, even at the office. We would go back again, for sure.
