About 5 miles west of Amarillo, this park is fairly new, all paved roads and concrete sites/patios. Quite busy, many long-term campers, sites well kept, and no highway noise. There's a pool and a hot tub at the Rec center. Use the frontage road to visit the "Cadillac Ranch" just down the street (it is unique!). We didn't find the cattle odor objectionable, but then we like farms and animals - didn't seem overbearing though. The only thing that did bother us was the constant wind during the day, and the campground can't be faulted for that! After touring the area and seeing the other campgrounds around Amarillo, we'd definitely stay here again.
Stayed in one of their new pullthru sites - 100 feet long and lots of space between sites! Leveling wasn't an issue. Brand new owners here just took over and staff says they plan to continue the upgrades of previous owners. Some sites are shady, ours was open so we could get rooftop satellite. Extremely friendly and helpful staff, escort to your site, and always out and about working or maintaining the grounds. Shopping nearby, and if you haven't been to Mt Dora you're in for a real treat: beautiful town with unusual shops and festivals. We'll definitely stay here when in the area!
A campground built on an old airport runway? All pull-through, level, full hook-up sites, close to your neighbor but not too close. Laundromat that's nicer than most campgrounds, RV parts store, and very friendly staff. Water is turned off during the winter months, but they have two locations where you can fill your tank. If you own a Tiffin motorhome, this is the place to go for factory service. If you don't own one, come here anyway and go through the factory tour. It will give you a hands-on up close view of motorhome construction from beginning to completion! Definitely worth the trip. And to top that off, get directions to their paint facility if you want to see how they put all those fancy designs on those coaches. All the Tiffin people are friendly and helpful, so feel free to ask questions. And, yes, the campground really is an old runway, but if you want to talk to Tiffin owners, what better place to go?!
I'm amazed at how many previous reviews consider this park to be beautiful! I see a well worn park with narrow concrete pads surrounded by sand, and completely covered with oak trees that are loaded with Spanish moss! Sorry, but it just doesn't look like anything remarkable to me. Lots of I-75 noise and limited number of cable channels to boot! I'll try something else next time I'm in the area.
A snowbird park with sites available for over-night. Excellent reception at check in, reasonable rate for FHU, escorted to grassy pull thru. Sites in this area are back-to-back so you could have a very close neighbor if they were extremely busy, but our escort said they wouldn't be putting anyone next to us on either side tonight (thoughtful because we've been in campgrounds where they line you up even when they aren't busy!). One consideration for motorhomes: use your leveling blocks on the grass because you will sink in (it's hard enough to drive on, but your jacks will go down!) We put this one on our list for future reference.
This is an old and tired KOA where the owners are not paying attention to the basics. Yes, the staff is friendly and the sites are level, but that's about it. Navigating the park is a challenge with the dirt/muddy roads, lack of directional signage, overhanging trees (the escort to your site is not just nice, it's necessary!) Trash isn't picked up: watch out for uncleaned fire pits from previous guests, wires protruding from the ground here and there, and owners (friendly) dog wandering around the park while you have yours on a leash! For the price, I expect better! Sorry, but won't be back.
We've stayed here before, and it continues to be the best in the area. Not much going on in Bay St Louis even today thanks to Katrina, but the casino is handy, and New Orleans is less than an hour's drive if you want to go for the day. Sorry to say that the area along the coast is too depressing even 5 years after the hurricane. Doubt that we'll stop by again - recovery is just too slow!
Nice overnight stop for us on our way across the panhandle. Friendly and helpful staff. We were in a nice site where we got satellite reception, but if you get on a site under the HUGE oak trees, be prepared for occasional barrages of acorns when a breeze comes up (an autumn phenomenon). A pretty park with lots of restaurants within a few miles.
If you're in the Panhandle area, this is a great park for Destin or Pensecola. Nice paved sites with patios and towed parking spot; friendly staff; they even allow vehicle washing at your site if you are so inclined - and they'll supply a long hose if you need it! Just a short drive over the bridge to the National Seashore. We'll be back!
This park is grossly over-rated. The focus is on park model sales, and the RV traveler is being tolerated as they sell their park models. The paved roads are peppered with speed bumps, the gravel roads are pothole ridden, and you're on your own when trying to find your way in or out of the park. The rate was a weekday special - it costs $196 for the weekend! And the dog policy (see other reviews) was a first for us! No thanks - won't be back!
