Finally found a park we like when we visit Baton Rouge. This park is clean, quiet, has level gravel pull through sites, is easy to get into and around. The sites are not as close as many private parks. Most have a picnic table. Good interior roads. Easy to get onto I-10 into Baton Rouge. Bathhouse is older but clean. No stray dogs or cats running around the park. Friendly hosts. We got in on Sunday afternoon without a reservation, but the park is usually close to full, so reservations are recommended.
We stayed at this park for 10 days, and did have sewer hookups. Our site backed up to the fence on the concrete parking lot, along with several others. Perhaps they only direct those staying for several days to the full hookup sites. I remember the park host mentioned that the fellow next to us was working here temporarily. We didn't have to move to dump for the entire 10-day period, which is always a good thing.
This is a very nice, clean, quiet, somewhat remote park; heavily wooded, with nice long pads, picnic tables, grills, a tent pad and full hookups. Our rate reflects the Golden Age passport, which includes $9 for reserving a space online through ReserveUSA. The friendly park hosts keep a close eye on everything going on in the park. We were in Site 4. The drawback for us is that we had poor Verizon broadband coverage and could not get online. We tried positioning our Dish satellite all over the spot, and never got a signal, so we had no TV. We did have Verizon cell phone service. Next time, we might go without reservations, probably on a Tuesday, and hope to pick our own site. The park was busy, even in February, so reservations are a good idea. Another drawback..there did not appear to be any heat in the bathhouse. One of the best things about this park are the two miles of easily accessible paved walking trails through the woods, and over bridges. This was such a pleasant place to stay that we will be back.
We've stayed in this park twice, both times in October, to enjoy the beauty of the mountains. There are only a few spots available for short term campers; most sites are leased, and well maintained. Reservations are recommended. The roads in the park are rough and somewhat narrow. Some spots take some maneuvering to get into. The park has a very nice large screened area with picnic tables for large gatherings. The washers and dryers worked fine. If you enjoy reading, you'll like their book exchange. In the screened area, there are book shelves were campers take and leave books. The park managers are very helpful. They keep a close eye on what's going on in the park. It is a convenient location; about one mile from a brand new WalMart.
We stayed in a pull-through at the front of the park. The rest of the park seemed to be filled with permanent residents, and for the most part, their sites were fairly well maintained. Reservations would be a good idea. Problems with the pull-through in the front: road noise, could not bring in a Dish satellite signal due to trees and after a heavy rain storm, the sewer drain in our site and in the site next to us filled up and could not be used. Benefits to staying here are that the sites are easy to get into, and level, and the park hosts are friendly & helpful. Conveniently located to stores, etc. Other than the road noise (which didn't bother us too much), the park is very quiet at night. The park offers free cable service, which we did not use. It also offers free Wi-Fi. We attempted to use that service one time, but the signal was very low. My Verizon broadband card worked well. We will stay here again.
This is a clean, mowed park built in a pasture. It is not a beautiful park, but we were happy with our pull through site: long, wide and level. If the office is closed, a form is provided with rate information where you pay, then select your site. Our Verizon broadband card and satellite dish worked very well. The park has free high speed wireless, but we didn't use it. Also a laundry room but we didn't use that either. Our 5th Wheel has two drains: one for the black and gray water, and another for the galley. Our site has 2 sewer drains, so it was convenient to hook up both. The park is within a couple of miles of University of Arkansas. Our site was in the back and we didn't hear any road noise. We will stay here again.
We were pleased with this park although it is a little rundown, and has several full-time campers in the back. Our full hookup site was large and level. The staff was friendly, and the water, electrical and sewer hook-ups were convenient. Our Verizon broadband card and Dish satellite worked very well. Easy in and out. We spent two nights there and will stay in this park again.
We chose this park due to proximity to the downtown Convention Center, about 2 miles. It is on the grounds of the Illinois State Fair, but the campsites are far enough away from the Fair activities that they don't interfere too much with the nighttime quietness of the Campground. And it's close enough for an easy walk, if you are there for Fair activities. This is a better Campground than we usually find at Fairgrounds. A very nice host directed us to our site, helped set up, then made suggestions of where to eat, and where to go while in town. Our site was a full hookup, on concrete, level, with plenty of room for slide-outs, but not all sites are that good. The roads are somewhat bumpy, but there were several big rigs in and out with no problem while we were there. A word of caution--a friend arrived at night, when the office was closed, and was led to a site by a security guard. Their site was on grass, muddy and unlevel. It's best to arrive in daylight so you can make a good choice as to where you park. Not much light at night in the park. This campground wasn't listed in any of our camping books; a friend told us about it. The campground is so large that reservations probably aren't necessary. We will stay here again.
We spent one night there, and agree with all the positive comments of the other campers. The host was very helpful, led us to spot #3, a level pull through. All the sites we saw looked level. Each spot has a small light, and cable & phone hookups. Well kept park; we will definitely stay there again; hopefully longer next time.
We have camped in this park several times. The gates are locked at 10:00 pm. We camped in Site 13 the last time, and could not get Dish Satellite access. It is a beautiful park, well maintained with a friendly staff. We will stay again.
It was hard for us to find a good, inexpensive park in Baton Rouge. The lower priced parks were either full or flooded. We finally decided to pay the higher rate for a clean park close to the Interstate. It was quiet with friendly staff. We will stay there again.
We had a trailer breakdown while in this park. The park host was extremely friendly & helpful to us while we were waiting for repairs. We recommend it to anyone who needs to be close to the city but prefers a country atmosphere. It is quiet, and well maintained. We have stayed here three times.
