This is the best RV park we can find in the area. While the sites are small, at least there is grass, trees, and flowers. Love the fact they have bins for recycling. Showers, cable, and wi-fi were good. It's the price that is outrageous.
Campground was OK for a single night stay. Flat site. Lots of cable channels. Wi-fi was slow but steady. Showers were very good. Came in on a Sunday and had problems figuring out their system since the office is closed on Sundays.
This is a campground connected to a water park. Everything the other reviewers say is true. Lots of kids running around. No Wi-Fi or cable. Showers aren’t really clean and are without a changing room since they expect you to be wearing a swimsuit. Registration is weird. Park near the garbage bin and then walk down to the main office. Yet, we loved it. Beautiful green grass and trees. Gorgeous mountain. Life can’t get better than this!
Strong and fast Wi-Fi service. Didn’t use them, but there were bathrooms, shower, and laundry. Site were level. If you have an ATV, this is the place to be. We don’t have an ATV, but it was still a quiet park. Very nice and friendly management.
I'm rating this lower after taking a shower. Every time a toilet flushes (which is often) the water goes way too hot. Plus the shower stall is so small you have to jump into the dressing area so you don't burn yourself. The maintenance people really don't know what they're doing. The power went out once and it took them a lot of time to just go to the main breaker and reset it. Slow Wi-Fi. Otherwise, good price, lots of trees, good cable, and great area.
Laundry is a bit more expensive than most places. Wi-fi is only available if you sit in the ‘internet café’ (office area) or maybe sites near the front. That’s a big pain. TV antennae reception and phone service is fairly limited due to all the trees. Otherwise, this has nice level spots under the large trees and is a quiet park.
Bad things - No bath and no showers. Cable is only if you purchase it directly from the cable company. TV channels are pretty limited using an antenna. The place is a gravel parking lot. You check in at a realty company. Good things is that the price is low. Wi-Fi is good. There are a lot of things to see in the area while still staying at a low cost RV park. Laundry is fairly low cost at a laundromat at the strip mall beside it. Quiet area.
A little expensive for a state park. We used the non-electric sites but we had water. Clean restroom and showers. Only one channel available on the antennae. Lots to do at this park with the ruins, a cemetery, and several hikes. Watch for the rattlesnakes at the visitor center!
A little pricey, but a good park. Lots of cable channels. Good Wi-Fi though it does slow down at times. Sites are level. Sites are a little small, but we always had a free site between us and the next RV. Good showers. Low price for the laundry. Lots to see in the area.
Great campground at an amazing price. Half of the sites are pull-through. It's dry camping, but that's what an RV is for. No channels available on the antennae. Incredibly clean restroom. Loved the hiking trail with plenty of signs. Easy trail with a gorgeous sunrise view.
Great price for electric and water. Sewer is a few dollars more. I had to pay $5 per day for internet, but it still is a good price per day. Level sites. Clean and spacious showers. Even laundry is a good price.
Fairly short sites so big rigs may not fit in many of the sites, but no problem for most RV’s. No electricity or water. Lots of TV channels available on antenna (over 30). We found a level site, but many may require more than the normal amount of pads. Great park for hiking. We hiked the main loop before it started snowing. Gorgeous after a snow!
Rate is for Senior Park Pass. Clean and big showers. Great view from our site. Good antenna reception with over 30 TV channels. Sites looked new and were level and large. Can be a bit noisy in the evenings with kids, but everyone settled down for the night. Great camping to go to the nearby tent rocks.
Price seems to have gone up, $30 was with the GS discount. Things weren't dirty, but they weren't clean. For instance, had to wipe off the laundry table to fold clothes. Several of the machines were broke with no "out of order" signs available to put on them. Sites are level but close so we get to hear everything. Had a hard time sleeping with the general noise and bright lights. Good wifi except in the evening. Lots of cable channels.
I guess your review depends on what you expect. Yes, the sign-in is weird. Park in the RV lot then go to the visitors center to register. This allowed us to see the exhibits and collect info for the next day of diamond hunting. No laundry was a major pain, but we'll live. Showers were big and wonderful after a day at the mine. Wi-Fi was very sketchy but a surprise for a state park. No TV reception, so we watched DVD's.
Nice camping. As the other reviews have mentioned, there are no showers. Received a few TV channels on the antennae, but the signal was week. Sites are level and it was quiet at night. The park is different in that it's surrounds the town. We drove to the downtown visitors center, but walking is possible especially since parking is difficult to find.
Wow, what a park! No cable (other sites had cable, not ours). Noisy from the air force planes flying over, trains, and interstate traffic. Dusty park with lots of permanent residents. Nasty sounding hand-out (“Do not waste our water in our way…will result in eviction”) along with lots of signs giving rules. Not welcoming you at all. Sewer damaged. Showers are cleaned like a state park, not an RV park. Bugs and dirt along the edges. Other than that, a great park. Too expensive for what you get.
Nice park. Wifi was fast and stable. Good clean and strong shower. They had a water issue but gave out a case of bottled water (provided by the state). The bad part was overnight sites are put on the front row where you hear all the traffic.
It's just a parking lot. Given all the space in the park, you'd think they could find space for something better. Even with a small 26' we had to disconnect to fit our toad into the space. I like the price and the location.
Wi-Fi works well if you are parked in the right area. Ask the owner to be parked for Wi-Fi if that is important for you. Quirky park with more personal extras like fruit in season. Friendly owner. Didn't have to pay extra for electricity.
Good park. Clean bathrooms and showers. Wi-Fi was good. Friendly management. Either there were a bunch of emergencies or the town seems to have a thing for sirens. We heard more sirens in one day than we've heard in months. Not the park's fault, but weird.
Nice state park, especially the hot tub with natural mineral water and the view. Big with local or state people. They are asking for 2 weeks notice to get reservations. That's difficult or impossible for people crossing the country. Luckily we got the last spot on a busy weekend.
Wow! What a beautiful place! Hot showers. No power or water, but the sites are large, level, and gorgeous set right in the desert. February was wonderful with spring flowers with nice temperatures. Dark at night to see stars. Friendly rangers.
Wi-Fi was slow except in the middle of the night. No restrooms or showers. But the connecting trails are amazing. Loved the hikes out back. Near to many great places (Desert Museum, Mountain Park, Gates Pass, etc.).
Very slow wifi no matter what time you try. Use the wire connection in the clubhouse instead. Never found the shower. No cable and no channels on our antenna. But, good level and large sites. Quiet area. Friendly management. Clubhouse is large and comfortable.
While this is an excellent park for snowbirds staying for the winter, it's too expensive for short time stays. There's all kinds of things to do if you stay the winter, but the clubs are already formed so that it feels just weird coming in for a few days. The place is big. We expected cable given the high price,but did not get it. Wi-Fi was good.
Lots of things to do in the large clubhouse.I liked the big exercise room along with the indoor pool and hot tub. The calendar is full of things to do. Wifi was good and cable selection was bigger than most parks. Lots of things to do in the area. We stayed here since it was much lower in cost than the Tucson RV parks. Quiet park with friendly people. Showers are limited. Make reservations if you want to stay when Tubac has an art fair.
No credit cards accepted. Have to have a physical key ($5 deposit) to get into bath/showers instead of having a code. Saw several people (including me) have to go back to the RV to get key. Only two showers for the whole RV park. Laundry is only open half of the day. Three of the machines were broke and no chair in the room to sit down. Both Wi-Fi and TV had problems. Liked the location in town, and it's probably the best RV park in the area, but it needs updated.
Friendly people. Sites were level. TV and Wi-Fi good. Showers cost 50 cents for 6 minutes. I know this is to save on water, but it's weird. Not much to do, but it's an OK place to stay for a night or two.
Great state park. Don't camp in the electric sites, they are too close together. Instead enjoy the non-electric sites among the rocks. Some are only for tents but many are big enough and level for RV's. Incredibly dark skies for star observation. Fun to hike among the rocks. Showers are hot but require you to press a button every 5-10 seconds. I assume they do this to reduce water use.
Great state park. We had a similar experience in having to camp in a group site since the park was full, but we had electricity and water and it was quiet at night. Great camp host. Fun to hike the trails for the views and more fun going off the trail to look for rocks. Also, we drove over to Spring Canyon for the Lover's Leap trail.
Great price, good wifi, and lots of channels. We came here during a rare rain. The place turned into a mud pit. Our wheels sunk into the mud. Our GPS had a problem finding the place. Luckily we saw the arrows from the highway.
Great RV park. Planned on staying for 1 week but park was so good we added a week. Good - Clean, level, and large sites. Quiet. Lots of TV channels. Very friendly management and campers. Lots of activities available. Within walking distance of 2 missions. Easy to use the bus system to get to the Alamo. Bad - Internet can be sporadic. Not enough showers (had to wait several times). Hint - Go to some of the activities and get to meet some of the other residents. Great parties!
I would give the park a higher score but we visited during a red tide episode. That meant dead fish on the beach and an aerosol that irritated the throat. Yes, we were warned but unless you experience it you don't realize how bad it is. By the 2nd night we were coughing all night. That said, it's a great park right on the beach. They should do something about the lights at the visitor center and bathrooms to cut down on light pollution, but that's the only problem.
Too expensive. Nice park with lots of extras, but the extras are things I don't need (pay putt-putt, water games, pay breakfast, local paper). Also, they clean the bathroom/shower between 7-8 am when you want to use it. Good part is that the park is within walking distance of the beach and a short drive to Galveston. OK TV. Wi-Fi was OK, but it went up and down several times a day.
Good park with several things to do like fishing. Good TV and internet. Wood decks are a nice touch. One weird thing is that the office is closed most of Saturday and all day Sunday. But this is a good park to use for us to be near the Houston airport.
There's several things to see here at this park. I liked seeing the farm. Texas State Parks aren't very low cost given the lack of Wi-Fi and cable TV at sites, but they are not bad. (This one had Wi-Fi at the office.)
Best bathroom, shower I've seen in an RV park. Gorgeous! Good cable TV and internet. Level concrete pads. Besides bigger sites, the place has extras like a pool, nature trail, and a frisbee course. There's even a historic marker across the road for an interesting walk.
Boring park in the fall. Not sure if it's better in the summer unless the water level is higher. Only one hiking trail with dangerous bridges and walk-ways. Parked in what is termed a pull-through, but only entry is paved. Luckily had the toad disconnected so we could pull out. Bath house is a distant walk and has no changing area.
Why advertise wi-fi when it's this slow? Cable offerings are very limited. 'Security' lights were so bright I could read a book in my RV with all my blinds closed. Makes it difficult to sleep! Barking dog in nearby site didn't help.
Stayed here while visiting the area. A little out-of-the-way but it was quiet. Good clean park with a pond and a small wooded area. Love the large oak trees! Good internet and cable. However, bathroom/showers area requires you undress in a common area.
The good things. $15 per night (special), good cable TV, within walking distance of a beautiful beach, looked like a good pool, nice sites. The bad things. The showers and bathroom were so dark I'm not sure if they were clean, slow internet, took 2 sites to get a working TV cable connection. Cops showing up at the neighbors at 3 am. The sand site was very rough and difficult to get the RV level. Overall, I'd come back at this price.
Love the old loop. Trees and bushes surround the sites so neighbors are difficult to see and hear. Loved watching the squirrels. Clean bathrooms and shower. Fun just walking to the bathhouse by walking on paths cut into the trees. No cable TV or internet. This is the park to relax for a few days. Great beach. Easy walk from the site. If you wake up before sunrise, walk to the dune lakes. The birds' songs are amazing!
Rate is based one weekly Good Sams discount. Good RV park. Mostly people living here full-time, but still friendly to short-term people. Internet is a bit weak at times, but the cable is very good with lots of channels. Front is noisy with road traffic, but didn't cause us a problem with sleeping. Only 2 bathrooms and showers for the whole place, but only had a problem on the last day.
I loved this park! There is so much to see and do. There is a museum with a small fee that is well worth it. But the part I enjoyed the most was hiking to see the ironworks, the gristmill, the various period building, and the slave cemetery.
Wi-Fi worked well for us and the price was right. However we got to hear people yelling for Kevin after 10 pm. No Kevin wasn't lost, they just felt yelling for him was easier than going to see him. The showers and bathroom is adequate, but not kept up well. Watch for GPS directions. We ended up stuck without a good turnaround. Luckily the people were nice to help us and gave us better directions.
Beautiful campground but has a few problems. I had to ask to get information on different things like internet. Most camps explain these things. The site we had required us to drive under a big tree. I like shade, but having the large branches scrape over the top of the RV was a bit worrying. The site was on grass, which was OK since it was dry, but could be difficult if wet. In the morning I looked to see if there was a shower/bathrooms since that wasn't mentioned. It appears they were here, but they were padlocked!
Lovely RV park with good space between the sites. Lake and all the acreage was a definite plus. The bad parts were the dusty roads and the Internet. We had to wash the car after we left. Couldn't even see through the windshield and we drove slowly on the roads. Wi-Fi is only available at the office which is a good hike away from our RV. But the view was great during the hike.
Expensive RV park. Nicely shaded with good Internet service. We didn't have problems, but I heard they are picky on the rules here. Good access to Gatlinburg, but that means road noise is fairly high. Bizarre payment scheme. The last night is free if you buy $35 of clothes. That means you save money at the same time you get new clothes. But most of the clothes are the type that have been "bedazzled". Not my style.
Great campsite for free. No sign up, just pull into an empty site. Very quiet and dark without the annoying security lights of RV parks. Good hiking trails along with the interesting Meriwether Lewis monument and pioneer cemetery.
Relaxing and friendly park. Park is right on the Mississippi. Loved being able to watch the barges pass. The only problem is that the camp frequently floods, so they need to restore the campground after the floods. This meant not all the bathrooms or laundry rooms were functional plus some of the walking paths were blocked by debris. However, the sites are bigger than most camps and you're close to Memphis for sightseeing.
Clean shower / bath units. Love having a hair dryer provided. Very good and strong internet service. Sites are close together, but at least there is grass along with small trees planted. Owner was out of the office, but were able to eventually sign in for our reserved site.
