An older family friendly park. Owner is awesome! Talk to the office for directions, as it your GPS will not be accurate. You first trip in you will wonder where in the world you are going, but after the first time, it is fine! LOL This is not a park for an overnight stop. Lake is dry due to lack of rain in Texas the past few years but the park is still a nice quite place to hang out for a few days.

Park is now called "Rocky Top". We just happened to see it from the highway as we drove into town. It is very clean and perfect for an overnight stop. The sites are huge enough that hopefully plans are to add more sites. There are no facilities, restrooms, etc. Pay is on the honor system, an envelope at a little pay station. It appears that most people there are workers in the area. We took the last available site. This will definitely be a place for an overnight stop for us.

Friendly staff, convenient location. Clean and well maintained RV Park. Free but very weak Wi-Fi, weak Verizon signal. Because of the construction going on in Victoria, sites in the area are at a premium. At this time, I suggest you call ahead. We have stayed here several times and find it a nice place for overnight or a few days. Passport America accepted--20% off in Winter months.

I have stayed at Dad's many times through the years. It is a friendly, comfortable, and convenient place to stay. At this time, because of a lot of construction in Victoria, most parks are full and overflowing. This visit, it was necessary to park in overflow parking--but, even so, we had full hookups. If you need to be there for a week or more, call ahead and every effort will be made to get you in a regular site. They have a very nice club house for rallies and there are some activities planned during the winter. Dad's is a safe and secure park without the frills.

This is a difficult park to rate. We did not enjoy it, but it was, for the most part, neat, clean and had amenities that many will find attractive. We were excited when I stumbled across the website for Long Island. I wish I had read it more carefully. This is NOT an RV resort. It is a park model community. If an owner has an unimproved lot, it can be put in a rental pool for RVs. So, we were parked in along with the multitude of park model/permanent residents. Some sites are on a canal, but they are not available in the rental pool To us, part of the fun of RVing is visiting with other RVers, so this could not happen in this instance. Check in was slow, the young lady in the office could care less if we were there or not. I had to ask for a map of the area to be able to find our site. The site was large enough with fairly decent grass. Your unit must be self contained since there are not restroom facilities available. My husband walked across to the golf course and said it was in really bad shape, so we did not play. We saw lots of others playing while we were there. It would probably be a great place to live, but it is not what we look for in an RV resort. It is a very secure park with a guard at the gate at all times. We were told that Long Island was formerly affiliated with the Outdoor Resort Parks. It must have been decades ago because it is nothing like the OR Is that we are familiar with. It was a very disappointing and expensive week. Actually, we paid for a week and left after 5 days. We normally avoid the KOA parks, but there is one located across the causeway that would have been much better choice for us. We will not return.

I should have realized that this park had an “attitude” when a non-refundable $50 deposit was required when making reservations. We asked if we could change sites and park with an RV club, but we could not change sites without losing the deposit. We have been RVing for 40 years, and the staff here is, without a doubt, the most unfriendly and rudest that we have ever encountered. Had it not been for the deposit, we would have left. We talked to several neighbors and club members. ALL agreed. Some ridiculous rules apply. Our rally cannot have breakfast before 9 AM because we are not allowed in the club room any earlier. For dinner, beverages: wine, beer, booze, must be put into plastic since glass is not allowed in the room. They are very strict on dog rules: breed, size limit (25lbs) and where dogs are allowed. When you come to Quartzsite, you must remember this is the desert: everything is dusty and dirty. There are no trees and no grass. RV parks are no exception and should not be downgraded because of this. And, do not come in January without reservations. This is a mecca for RVers and desert rats and should be “experienced” at least once. This RV park is the newest and possibly the nicest in the area. Small concrete patios at each site but poorly placed and we were unable to park where the patio was at our door. Sites are gravel, streets are paved. Because of the staff and overall negative attitude of the park we will NOT stay here again.

I rarely rate any resort a 10: but this is definitely worth it. This is a new resort, only open 2 or 3 years. We saw a highway billboard, and decided to check it out. The lots are for sale and many are large enough for a small house along with the RV. Rather than describing it, check the website. The place is awesome. Even better, we checked in about 11 AM and it happened to be "hamburger day" for residents and guests, so we got free lunch! We are considering a couple of months at The Palms in the winter. The map on this site is a little off, but I cannot figure out how to change it. Go by the map on the resort website. We will be back.

This is nice country park with potential. The sites are large with grass (weeds) between sites. But it needs to be mowed. It looks bad and makes it unpleasant to be outside. There are no amenities, but we don't use them anyway and prefer not to pay for them. The owner is very friendly and helpful. The only problem is that there in a pecan orchard adjacent to the property. Several times a day there is a very loud BOOM (!) to scare the birds away. Since our dog is frightened of loud noises she won't go outside. And, when we leave, it is necessary to take her. Except for this, we would definitely stay here again, and if you don't have a "scaredy cat" critter, I recommend this park.

The site we had was HUGE: a very long pull through. Almost too long because of backing the tow vehicle back every time we left: LOL. Lots of grassy (weeds) area between sites which needed to be mowed. I don't know, but I feel that the recent heavy rain made it not possible to mow. Park is older, but appears to be well maintained. Near the interstate, but I was never aware of noise from it. There was a picnic table at our site. We will certainly stay here next time in the area.

Camp "host" was useless when I stopped to ask for information. We had to make a tight loop to get back to the entrance to the camping area. Site #4 was adequate for a 40' motorhome. Very close to the Flaming Gorge Dam. It was on the road that we were traveling and it was time to stop. Otherwise, we would not have stopped here. If you want a primitive campsite near the water, it would be fine. Nightly rate was using Golden Age Passport.

A very nice, clean, well maintained CG. Owners are very nice, friendly, and helpful. Sites are a little tight, but not a problem in a 40' MH. Definitely the nicest place in town to stay. While here, visit the state bath house for a mineral soak.

A better than average KOA. A very nice park with large shade trees and friendly staff. Golf at the nearby Cove View Muni course. Just ignore the mobile home park at the entrance.

Rate shown is with the Golden Age Passport. Since we usually go to resort type parks and rarely dry camp, it is hard for me to rate this type of campground. Check in was easy. Rangers came by and asked that we move the Jeep since 2 tires were touching the grass. Then came by at 8:10 to "remind" us to turn off the generator. They were very pleasant. Our site was adequate for our 40 foot motorhome. There were several sites that would have worked. Pulling out was really tight: would never have made it if we had hooked up the toad. The marina nearby had plenty of room for hooking up on level ground. A nice place to camp if you like "roughing it". An easy drive north to the falls on one day, then to Old Faithful the next.

This is by far, the worst campground I have ever stayed in. Weeds, dirty, rundown. The mineral pools look inviting, until you get in. We were told that they were cleaned that morning. We only stayed in a couple of minutes because of the scum, algae, dog waste floating, etc. We went to town to the free state bath house. We only stayed one night and only that because we could not find anyplace else to park. We drove through in the car before taking the motor home out, then drove around town looking for a parking lot or some place else, but had no choice. Moved the next morning to the other park in town. (Much nicer and less expensive, too). We WILL NOT stay here again.

This "park" is now closed. There was a chain across the entrance. We did not stay at this time, but wanted to post the information. We were told that the RV park, casino, and hotel are going to be demolished.

Solstice is a new resort, opening in May, 2010. At this time, to attract customers, they are offering the second night free. We were also here a couple of months ago, and we were the second "customer". Eventually, this will be a 10-10-10 resort for Class A motor coaches. At this time, other type RV's are accepted. When completed, assuming the economy allows, there will be a huge number of sites which will be for sale. Some sites are large enough for cottages to be built. No pool at this time, but is planned. Free WiFi with good signal. Beautiful resort, up high with a great view. Definitely a place to visit.

Rate shown is using Passport America. This is a new campground, has been open about 18 months. If you have a boat or other water toys, this is the place for you. It is not fancy, but very clean and located very near the boat launch for the lake. The owners are super people. We paid for 2 nights, but due to an emergency, we had to leave a day early. When we went in to tell them we were leaving, the owner got $20 from the register and gave it to us. We did not ask for nor expect a refund! We had a nice view of the lake from our site. We will return to this campground frequently as we have family in town and prefer it over the other places that we have stayed in the past.

I realize that we all have different expectations when going to a campground, but I really don't understand the very high ratings for this campground. It appears to be a very old KOA. Roads/sites are gravel/dirt. There was a little rain this afternoon and while not a muddy mess, there were some muddy holes in the streets. I did not inspect the restrooms, but for the tent area, there were porta-potties. This campground is fine for a night or two while visiting the area, and we would stay again, unless we found something better. It got us off the road, and that was the object!

Dad's is always a favorite spot for us. Owners/staff are great. Sites/streets are concrete. Park is always clean. Sites are large. During winter, sno birds are here and very friendly. Lots of planned activities, including frequently Saturday breakfast (all you can eat pancakes, eggs, etc. for $3.50) and pot luck dinners.

From what I could tell, this was the only accecptable place to stop in El Paso. It is Ok for an overnight stop but that is about all. Lots of permanant residents. Park was pea-gravel that tracks in the rig. Dog walks were sand/dirt and messy. Our pull through site was long enough that we did not need to unhook the toad.

Great RV Park--nothing fancy but clean. A lot of permanent folks, but sites were clean and not cluttered. There is a separate area for overnighters and sites are long enough that unhooking the toad is not necessary. Streets and sites are asphalt/gravel. Sites are wide with a nice picnic table. One of the best things about this park is the great restaurant. For dinner we had ribs, "real" mashed potatoes and beans. Drink and dessert included for $7.95--and brought enough back for another meal. Other entrees are also available. For breakfast the next morning DH had eggs, sausage, biscuits and gravy, juice and coffee for $4.95. Cannot beat the prices and the food was excellent. Good stopping distance between El Paso and San Antonio. We will certainly make this a stopping point when traveling this road, which we do at least once a year.

Rate by previous poster was for dry camping. This is not a park for a quick overnight stop due to the location but is certainly worth taking 2 or 3 days to visit. There are 3 hot mineral spring tubs each with a different temperature. We were amazed at the amenities available--grocery store, beauty/barber shop, massage therapy, restaurant and the usual shuffleboard, boccie ball, and other fun stuff. The sites were not level, the roads and sites were all gravel at our site. There was a water truck that came around to dampen the roads to keep the dust down. Everybody was very friendly and having fun.

This is fine for an overnight stop. There are lots of permanent residents and snowbirds. From what I saw, even these sites were neater than many similar parks. The streets are wide and paved and the level sites are pea-gravel. We stopped on a spur-of-the moment, so had no idea what to expect. Being Thanksgiving, the office was closed, but there were envelopes at the door with pricing to leave with payment. A nice brochure was in the envelope. We would stop here again if in the area.

The ladies in the office were super nice both on the phone and when we arrived. Pulling into this RV Park is tight. If more than 1 rig was there to register at a time, it would be blocking traffic into the park. The streets are narrow, but in excellent condition. We were placed on the upper level. The concrete pads wide enough. As a previous poster commented, the landscaping is over done, not a patch of grass anywhere, just bushes and shrubs. I felt closed in. Driving past the swimming pool, I could see that it had a bunch of leaves and junk in it. Considering the distance from the freeway, I was surprised at the amount of noise. We could not hear it inside the coach, but it would not have been pleasant if we wanted to sit or cook outside. When you register, you get a key to the pool area. There is a nice city park behind the RV park. You can access the park through a gate, but it takes the key to get back in. That is nice: keeps people out that are not staying in the RV park. The park is okay, but unless absolutely necessary, we would not stay here again because of the crowded conditions of the park.

I thought the price was high: rate shown is for 30 AMP service with no sewer, but on the asphalt. There were full hookup sites available, but they were in an area that was dirt. Sites were large enough for awnings or whatever you needed. The park was very basic/no frills, but there was a club house, pool and hot tub (both with water in them) and free Wi-Fi. This park is nothing fancy, but I doubt that anything in the area is. Regarding the poster of August, '08. Ratings have to be considered by the person doing the posting. A rating of 1 for a campground with amenities and a 9 for dry camping without even showers available, makes no sense. Unless, you rate by price.

The only change in the park from previous reviews is that they have made more of the sites concrete rather than the dirt/gravel. Makes it much nicer. This is a great place for an overnight stop or to visit in the area. We have been here several times and it never changes: friendly staff, everything nice and clean, sparkling pool.

This area is on Avila Beach. The sites are all first come-first serve. We were lucky!!! The other times we have driven by, there was no space even for little camper. I estimated 50 sites. I have no idea how many there really are, it depends on how the people park. The sites are not marked, just find a spot large enough for your rig and pull in. This is dry camping at its basic level! But the view of the ocean makes it worth it and the reason for the rating. Normally, we don't stay in places like this: dry camping. There is a fishing pier and great seafood. There is a section with full hookups, but not as pretty a view as the dry camping right on the water. Some spots are being converted to full-hookups, and some of the dry camping will be done away with. Sad but true. The village of Port San Luis is a cute, quaint village. Rate for full hookup is $40/night. We love this place and will return when we can.

As stated in a previous review, Oasis RV is basically an asphalt parking lot with full hook-ups. There is a perimeter of grass if you need to walk the dog. That is a big issue for us. For a casino park, it is fine. Better than many. There is a phone on the building at the entrance to call the office and give a credit card then go over after parking to check in. There were very few rigs here during our stay, so maneuvering was not an issue. The row of sites by the street were not level. Interesting fact: while we were at the Oasis, the unlevel sites by the streets (possible noise) were the ones that were mostly taken. There are some trees behind those sites for a little shade. We parked in one site for the shade, and realized that we could not get satellite. Later moved to another site, and DH parked under a tree, so still no satellite!! OH well, there is cable TV. Wi-Fi is available for a fee from the hotel. I did not use it, but there was a fairly strong signal. We will use this park again.

Rate is Passport America. I called on a Sunday a couple of hours before arrival. The office was closed but lady was very friendly anyway and went to the office to check site availability. She left our site information and map on the door with an envelope for payment. There were lots of permanent people there. The place was fairly neat and clean but not attractive because of overgrown grass/weeds. Because the park is large with lots of ponds, it seemed like we drove forever to find out site. It was gravel/weeds and we could barely get the coach level. It is okay for an overnight stop, and we would do it again.

This is a lovely desert resort--meaning that it is a lot of gravel and few/no trees. But, people have to understand the desert and not give bad ratings to parks because of it. The park is expensive, the rate shown is Passport America--with an $8/day electric charge. But, being summertime with temperatures around 110 - 115 during the day, the AC runs constantly. Of course, being summer, the park is empty. This is with lots for sale--prices are reasonable for the area, much less expensive than many similar places. We have been here before, and will return frequently.

This is a beautiful city park with about 56 acres of grass and trees. We were here for 2 weeks and loved it. Previous comments about the caretaker--we met him, visited, and waved every time we saw him. He was friendly, but could be a grump if you get out of line. We called nearly a year in advance and all that was taken was name and dates. I was concerned and called back twice during the year to confirm, and he always said he had our name. We checked in a couple of days early after looking at the park. The city has a nice bike trail and it comes along the edge of the park. There is a long walking trail around the park and down by the river. There are 2 dump stations. There are several playground areas for the little ones with nice looking equipment. Overall, the place is great. If we ever need to be in the area again, we will look forward to staying here.

We have driven past this park in the past because of the bad reviews. I am glad that I checked the more recent ones. Upon check-in, the owners were very friendly, I suppose trying to overcome the reputation of the previous owners. The park was very clean and well maintained. The restrooms and laundry were spotless. The sites were long enough to pull through without unhooking the toad. If in the area, this is the place to stay!

Over priced for what you get. Lady on check in could not give information about local dining or attractions and was rather rude when asked. Upon entering the park, the front section was unappealing but our spot was back in the back and was not too bad. Roads and sites are gravel. The park is a place for the night, but not a destination. There were a few that appeared long-term. Overall the park was neat and clean.

Call park for directions. At this time, there is a lot of construction. We did not call and ended up driving several miles on narrow, dirt country roads. This is an old park, apparently under new management and has under gone some renovation. It is a hard park for me to evaluate. There are many pros and cons. Pro: Park is clean and neat, nice looking swimming pool and play area for children. The lady in office friendly and there is free Wi-Fi with a strong signal. Sites are wide with grass/weeds in between. Lots of grassy areas make the park look appealing. Con: Very over-priced, but when there is nothing else in the area, they can get away with it. Entrance is a bit narrow. The narrow roads are rough, composed of ground up asphalt and gravel. Pads are so narrow that it is hard to get centered without being on the grass. There is no patio for sitting outside or putting out the grill. There is a picnic table, but is it in the grass and would not be comfortable for eating. The noise from the interstate could be heard at times, but not bad. What was bad was the noise from a racetrack nearby. On the Sunday evening that we were here, if there had been a patio to sit outside, we could not have because of the noise. If the “cons” don’t bother you, it is a nice place. But they bother me and that is the reason for the low rating.

This is a decent, bare-bones park. Nothing fancy, but good for a day or two if you need to be in the area. The streets and sites are gravel. Sites are large with grass between each one. There is free Wi-Fi. The signal strength shows full strength, but is is very slow. Verizon signal week, so could not connect any better with it. Owners are friendly and helpful. There is only one other over-nighter. The rest are long-term people, but the sites are neat. The only problem is that they do not pick up after their dogs, there are a lot of droppings around. We told the owner about it. He seemed concerned and said he would take care of it. If you have time, go to the Cider Mill. There is lots of great stuff there. And, go into town and eat at Miss B's cafe. Good home cookin.' I guarantee you will not leave hungry!! We would stay here again if in the area.

This is a nice park, staff was friendly and helpful, area was clean. The area where we were had shared hook-ups--this was not a problem but made us a little close to the neighbor. Sites not shared had plenty of space and some grass between the sites. The park is close to town, and just down the street from the Passion Play complex. We would stay here again if in the area.

This park is just north of Waco. Check there for other reviews. New owner 2 years ago. She was very friendly and helpful. Told us about some of the changes that she has made and plans to improve. It is an older park that needs cleaning up. There are quite a few permanent units, but the sites are, for the most part, fairly neat. The sites are gravel; ours was level. Some of the sites have some shade. We ate at the little on-site restaurant and the food was good. It is on the interstate, so some of the sites are close and noisy. Our site was well removed, and we could not hear it. One area, well removed from the rest of the park, has covered sites--which sounds nice for hot weather and hail storms, but they were messy and dirty. I would not consider this a destination, but fine for visiting the area or overnight. We would stay here again.

This is an ownership park where unsold lots are available for rent. It is less restrictive than most Outdoor Resorts in that 5th wheels and class C Motorhomes are permitted if over 26' in length. This resort is outstanding. The view of the lake and trees is awesome. The only thing lacking is a fitness room, but that will be added with future expansion. At this time, the golf course is closed due to excessive rainfall. Parts of the course have been flooded out. From our site, trees can be seen far out in the water. We were told that those trees are not supposed to be in the water--the lawn goes out past that point. The nightly rate reflects a discount because we own a lot at the Outdoor Resort in Indio, CA. There is nothing not to like about this Resort. We will be back! If it were not so far from home, we would purchase a lot!

We avoid KOA campgrounds when at all possible, but in Hot Springs, there was no other place to stay. This is a typical KOA: over priced, narrow roads making it difficult to maneuver a big rig, narrow RV pads that are gravel and dirt, overgrowth of trees and shrubs. Lots of people obviously like this kind of setting but we do not. We could hardly wait to leave! Wi-Fi was adequate and reasonably priced: $4 for 2 days, The ladies checking us in were friendly.

Staff is unfriendly. No brochure or information is provided. As stated by others, the train tracks are very close. It was not too bad since we were at the opposite end--we could feel the vibrations from it more than hear it. Others mentioned the pool/spa as being available. As far as I am concerned, if it is not on site, I would not consider it an ammenity. Nothing was mentioned about it and I did not ask. We had planned on staying 3 or 4 days, but considering the condition of the park and surroundings, we left after 2 days. I would not consider it any more than an overnight stop. It is doubtful that we would ever return.

This is a very nice casino campground. The concrete pads are level and there is a lot of grass between sites. There is now a decent grocery store in Kinder. In addition to the RV Parking, there are approximately 100 park models/cabins for the folks without an RV. There are adequate amenities, but we did not use any of them. On the website, there is a coupon that can be printed that is for 2 nights free when you pay for 2 nights. You must take the coupon in when you go in to register. It is possible to get the RV Parking fully comped, but cheaper to stay out of the casino and pay for the parking. The shuttle runs twice/day to take you over and bring you back. I would definitely stay here any time that I am in the area

A very nice RV park for long term or over night. It is pretty with the large trees and golf course around the perimeter. The area is clean and well maintained. Company mowing lawn could do a little better. The sites are wide and long with a nice grassy area between sites. Patio in front of site--picnic table at each site. Free Wi-Fi had good signal. Pool is very pretty. There is a nice sized room for guests to use or for rallies. A very friendly park. Adjacent golf course is not the best--needs attention. We will certainly stay again if in the area. Passport America accepted during the week.

This is probably the worst RV park that I have ever stayed in. By the style of the office building, it appears to be an old KOA. The streets are so narrow that you can hardly get a rig down them. Some sites are wider than others. Even though there were several wider sites empty, we had one that was so narrow that we could hardly get in. One slide was inches from a tree, and there was a very narrow walkway on the other side of the coach. I asked for a big rig site, but it was so short that we had to park the car across the street from the rig. We could not get a satellite signal because of the trees, and they were so low over the coach that we were afraid to put the antenna up. "Landscaping" consisted of hundreds of overgrown trees and shrubs--all needing trimming--and the leaves and mess that they create. Because of all the over-growth, the place was closed in, dark and dreary. We felt like we were in a dungeon. Sites are a chalky gravel that created a mess tracking in. I will park in Wal-Mart before I would go back to this place.

A resort with amenities. Office staff was not friendly. Park area needed cleaning up. Lots of trees which can be nice, but they create more maintenance for the staff--and they were not taking care of it. Everywhere just looked messy, dirty, and cluttered--just unappealing. If we are in San Antonio again, I guess we will stay here because there are not many choices.

After reading other reviews, I wonder if we are talking about the same place! It is not a top notch Resort with amenities, which is all that I would rate a 10. It is a nice park, clean and well maintained. We had a lovely site on the water. What appears to be grass is weeds with stickers. It is mowed and neat in appearance. Office staff was pleasant. Nice quiet setting. It is a few miles into town if you need anything. We would certainly stay here again.

Other than Outdoor Resorts, this is the only park that I have rated as a 10. The rate given is for month in the Executive section. No one under 16 is permitted in this area. However, this time of year it really doesn't matter since the kids are in school anyway. In this area the sites are very large with large patios and with a nice table and 4 chairs. The other sites in the park are very adequate size and have bench type tables. There are a very few sites with shade. The "Club" section has lots available on long term lease (30 years) with some beautiful casitas and homes. Free Wi-Fi, not outstanding signal, but adequate. Verizon cell phones--this is an extended area and the signal is weak, but can usually make a call. There is lots to do in the area, Fredericksburg, Luckenbach, vineyards, etc. At out site there is a huge grassy area which makes a beautiful and peaceful setting. I would recommend this resort for long or short term stays.

The $19 rate is based on the weekly rate. Paved streets, paved, level pads, trees, grass, etc. As always, this is a great place for overnight or extended stay. The winter Texans are here so there is a lot of visiting and fun going on. Every other Saturday during the winter season,the owners sponsor a breakfast--all you can eat for $3.00. They do take care of the people that come here. We always enjoy coming back here.

Park is 1 year old and is very nice and exceptionally clean. The sites are a little close, but certainly wide enough for slides and awnings. The pool is sparkling clean. There is a covered patio adjacent to the pool. At night the entire area is very well lit. The manager was very friendly on the phone and in person. We called that we would be arriving late--she left a brochure on the office door with our site number and directions. The only problem was that we were heading west and it was necessary to make a u-turn to enter the park. Being in a 40' motor home towing a car, there was no place for a u-turn--we just went down a small side street and around the block. No problem. This is definitely the place to stay if in the area.

An overnight stop, not a destination. Call ahead--when I called, the lady said that there was one site available for my size rig. In the afternoon that we arrived, it was very noises due to helicopters overhead, I assume going to the small airport near by. Considering that there is not much else convenient for a quick overnight stop, I would come back if necessary.

A run down park--mostly permanent folks with a few sites for overnighters. The site was long enough that we could leave the car hooked up. The 50 amp connection did not work and the 30 amp tripped when I used the hair dryer. At least there was some grass to walk the dog!!!

This is a nice place. The rates vary on the type of site. A previous poster indicated a much higher rate. That was for a premium, oversized lot. The "regular" lots are very large and I don't see the need for the larger ones. We had a real problem this visit. A couple of water connections inside the coach ruptured. When going to the office to inquire about the water pressure, the staff was very rude and said that the pressure was high and that we should have used a regulator. We said that they should have told the customer prior to hooking up, they did not care. Just repeated that regulators should be used. The low rating is because of the rudeness of the staff. There is a really nice, continental breakfast. This is a convenient stop for us, but considering the rudeness, I don't know that we will return.

This is NOT an RV resort. Not even an RV Park. It is a community for park models with a few set aside for snowbirds in RVs. When we checked in, the staff was extremely rude. We got to our site which was mostly dirt with a little bit of pea-gravel. Since the park was for park models, the sewer hook-up was in the center under the motor home and not accessible. When asking at the office about it, they were very rude and actually laughing at my husband! They offered to come hook it up. We would drive the rig forward then after they hooked up, we would back up. We asked who was going to do the disconnect since the waste would be running up hill, there would certainly be a mess when disconnecting. Besides, that would be a lot of hassle for an overnight visit. They required a deposit for a key to the dog walk. We got the key, went to the dog walk, opened the gate: the dog walk was outside the park on a residential street! The walk area was a dirt strip beside the street. What a joke! Don't you know the residents love it? There were numerous signs stating no dogs beyond this sign. Then, if you were going to be out past 7 PM, you had to place a $40 deposit for a transmitter to get back in the gate. The office did not open until 9 AM for us to get the deposit back, and we planned to leave by 7:30 AM. This was the worst RV experience in my 15 years of RVing. There is not enough money to get me to go back to this place again.

This is a very nice resort. It is an owner park, with some sites not yet sold, so they are for rent. If you check the website, you can get a certificate for 5 free nights, which we are using. There was no sales presentation because the sales manager was out of town, but I have been told by others that it is very low key and no pressure. The resort is spotless, it is quiet, overall very pleasant. The sites are very large and level. You are permitted to walk the dogs in the wash behind a row of rigs if you don't want to go outside of the resort. Being desert, the area is all gravel, and my dog is very tiny and cannot walk on the gravel. I did find a little patch of dirt for her to use. There are a couple of rows that will be for Class A coaches only, the rest mixed use for trailers, 5ers, or coaches. There are a couple of park models. Rigs must be no older than 10 years and in good condition. It is not designed for overnighters. As the resort matures, I think it will be a first class place. You just have to remember that this is the desert and you will not have grass, shade trees, etc. Also, remember, that temperatures will reach 115 or so during the summer months.

This is a very nice park with paved streets and concrete sites. Between the sites is pea-gravel--remember this is the desert! The staff here does a great job keeping the place clean. They sweep the pads and rake the gravel between sites as soon as a rig pulls out. There are a few small trees. In addition to comments made by others, there is a wonderful dog run. It is very large and nice grass for the dogs to play. For the golfers, there is a very nice course that the golfers in the group enjoy. We are here with a 30 coach Super Bowl Rally. The staff is very accommodating. There is a meeting room, but the acoustics are very bad because of the concrete floor and stucco walls. It amazes me that there is a place this nice in such a remote area. If you come out here, buy groceries and fuel before you get here as the grocery prices are extremely high.

This is primarily a snowbird park with a few sites for overnighters. According to the website there are 700 sites but I think that this includes a large area that at this point is undeveloped. Website also says phone and cable--our site did not have cable. We saw the place as we were driving down the highway to another park and decided to stop. The office closed at noon (on Saturday) and does not open on Sunday. We went to the 2 manager's sites, and nobody was home. We finally just chose a site and will leave money at one of the manager's residences. This is a large gravel park with a small concrete patio at each site. Otherwise, just a wide open space. It is pretty much empty at this time since the snowbirds have not arrived. Overall, the park is very clean.

This park is in 2 sections. The part across the street from the lake is the pits! Mostly very old run-down rigs that have been there for many years. The place is really trashed out. There were 2 newer rigs there, probably short term. Across the street on the lake side is not as bad. Fairly clean with a nice view of the lake. But the sites are very small. We have a big rig had to parallel park taking up 3 sites. Otherwise, we would have been blocking the road. There was nobody in the office. A man at one rig said just to park and the manager would be around sooner or later. We waited, but needed to leave to visit friends. I called, left a voice mail saying when we would return. When we got back to the rig, he came over and collected the fee. Very nice and friendly guy. It was the only park in the area that had 50 amp service that we could find.

This park is okay--nothing special unless you play golf. The guys in our group like it here because of the golf and that is the reason we stop here. In my opinion, it is very overpriced. The $49 is for a 30 amp site. We need 50 amp, but will just do with 1 air conditioner rather than pay the additional $20. You do get a continental breakfast and newspaper in the $20 fee. Sites are narrow. There is a pole at the back of each site--made it difficult to get parked so that the slide could be extended.

Lovely Resort--a favorite place to visit and escape the heat. The RV resort is very nice and well maintained. Rates vary from $20 for dry camping to $36 for waterfront sites. Smaller interior lots are in between. There are picnic tables and fire rings at each site. An abundance of fresh seafood is available in the area is outstanding. You will want visit the cannery to buy freshly canned tuna and salmon. There are several great places to eat or you can buy fresh seafood to prepare at your rig. I bought some for the freezer, and many cans of the canned tuna and salmon. It is more expensive than the grocery store variety, but well worth the cost.

An okay place for an overnight stop. Lots of permanent units here. Sites and street are all gravel, so a little dirty, but sites are adequate for big rigs with slides. On the map/information page, it states "showers $0.25 for 6 minutes". Wi-Fi is free--get code at office.

This is a decent park for an overnight stop. All gravel and dirt sites with grass between the sites, but is is mostly dead at this time. The pool is lovely, but I did not use it. Lady in the office was very personable. I would not come here to stay, but for an over night stop, it is fine. WiFi has a weak signal but is free. Get code at the office.

This park has paved streets and concrete pads. However, the pads are very narrow. We had to park with the wheels several inches off the pad because of a tree and electric pedestal on the opposite side. (Quad slide rig). Area is pretty clean. Only a few short term/over nighters, most appear to be long term. When I walked the dog, I did not see any loose dogs like were reported in an earlier review. There is a $1/day additional charge for cable TV. I did drive out to the other RV park here in town. It appeared to be cleaner and a little nicer as reported in the reviews. I just did not have time to check reviews before we got here!! The pads were still pretty narrow, though. If we are back in the area, we will stay at the other park.

We have stopped here several times and have always found the park to be clean and well maintained. There are always a lot of people here that appear to be somewhat long-term, but the sites are always clean. One section is just gravel, but the others have a small patch of grass between them. Lots of small trees, but not large enough for shade. There is a strong Wi-Fi signal at the site--but for $3/day, I don't use it. I consider this a nice stop for a few days.

This is a new park, opened early 2007. The roads and pads are paved with rock in between sites. There is a playground for kids. There is also a pet "hotel" to leave the fur kids while riding the train. I went in and it was very clean, but did not use it since this was an overnight stay. Will probably leave the critter when we come back in October for a rally and train ride. This is a really nice park for an overnight stop or rally.

This is a new park. There are 12 sites that are covered and have covered patios. Great for hot Texas sun and hail storms! We were told that they are going to build covers on more sites. Gravel roads and sites. Nothing fancy, but clean and convenient if you need to be in the area. Free WiFi at the sites.

I called ahead and was told that big rigs were not a problem. But, it was a problem. To access the sites it was necessary to cross a very narrow bridge going around a curve. Very tricky! The sites are all grass. Mostly permanent folks--a couple of tenters came in while there. Would be okay for "camping" but not the type of place for a big high-end rig.

Outstanding Resort. Beautiful setting. Great place to be in the winter but extremely hot in the summer. Owners can be snobbish if you don't have a high end motorhome. Last season, one lot sold for around $1 million!!! I own a lot across the street!!

Very nice, friendly family owned park. I have stayed here many times in the past few years and it is always pleasant. A great overnight stop, or great place for Winter Texans. Concrete driveways and level concrete sites. Nice large club house for rallies, laundry facilities.
