Overall, this park was a good place to stay: quiet and convenient to Gettysburg. It has lots of trees and shade and was well run for the most part. The dog park and dog walk area was very nice and the people really were helpful. Possibly overpriced, but it seems to me that is the case with a lot of KOA campgrounds. The WI-FI worked most, but not all, of the time. The reason I didn't rate higher was based on a sewer pipe problem across from us. They would work on it, then it would overflow: again and again. They should have just called a professional plumber! Not a pretty sight.

This was a good, convenient place from the interstate highway, to overnight. When we visited, they said they had seen a lot of rain. We had standing water at our door: had to wear rubber boots when I stepped outside. A little added dirt or gravel in the depressions and some grass seed would have helped. Also, the site was not level from rear to front. My front wheels were off the ground and so was our neighbor's. They need to add some gravel and check level on the site pads. The management was very nice and the check in was easy and fast. The park was also quiet. Hopefully they will level and add some gravel here and there.

For the price, this is a good place to stay. The only negative is the HIGH price for WI-FI. The trolley is also not run as conveniently as it used to be when it was The Grand, but I am not sure that is the RV park's issue.

I liked the campground. We visited The Skyline Drive from here and saw some nice wineries in the area. It was fairly convenient to the main highway. Our site did not have sewer but we were OK with that. The only real objection to the campground I had was getting into the front group of sites where we stayed. The entrance to the front area is a hairpin curve. You cannot turn the corner to enter the camping area and you have to wind around the rear of the park on other roads and then come back to the exit road to enter from the opposite direction. You have to do the same thing when you leave the campground. The layout could be much better.

The sites were very small for us as listed as Big Rig Sites. Ours was very narrow and short. The park was clean and well run and seemed secure, but I am not sure I would call the site they assigned us a "big rig" site.

This is a nice place to stay but it did not seem to me to be as good as it used to be. I noticed what I thought was a sewer type odor when I was coming into the park entrance area that was pretty bad at times and also I thought the same type odor was along some of the RV sites when driving around in the rear of the park. The staff is great and very helpful with anything you need. The park is well maintained.

This is a nice park and I would stay here again if in the area. It is convenient to stores, restaurants and Blue Ridge Parkway access. Asheville and Biltmore Mansion are also close.

This was a very good stop for an overnight stay from Interstate 40 travel. We have a 40 foot Class A and there are several sites up on a hill that you can pull in and out of easily even with a tow car. You actually take up two smaller sites but the owners are OK with that and just charge for one site. That is why I said it was big rig friendly which was different from some other reviews. It was quiet, clean and very convenient to the interstate.

I guess I am different than some other reviewers of this park, but I did not think it was anywhere near worth what they charge per night. The rear dog run was very, very small and grown up with grass. The sewer connections where we were did not have plastic tops or sealers but just had boards put on top of the sewer hole where odor escaped. It was hard to level our rig there on the gravel and the interior roads reminded me of older parks not designed for a large rig. It just was overpriced in my opinion for what you got. We have stayed in "resort" type parks with free breakfast, free wifi and free newspapers, etc. and good interior roads for $35 or less a night. The people were nice but to us it looked like a much lower priced campground - maybe $25/night would be more fair. If they are going to charge an upscale rate then the park should reflect it. On the other hand - there is not much good competition in the area to keep their pricing in line.

This was a nice, quiet park with great people at the desk. I didn't care for the casino across the highway. The RV park also had excellent security with security vehicles circling regularly. Landscaping was pretty and neat. Trash pickup was every morning. The $30 nightly rate is for a weekly discount of $210 per week. There is a great dogpark and dog exercise playground at Fountain Hills - about 3 miles away.

Nice park and probably better than trying to stay in Sedona. We visited Sedona from here and were glad we did not take the motorhome into Sedona. Close to the interstate and convenient. Gravel sites with parking being a little unlevel. People have been checking the sites as being "no shade" above. I changed the answer on my form because we had shade just fine. I do not think we had WiFi but I was not sure enough to check it on the form.

Very nice park but the dog walk area was not very nice - small with lots of dust and dirt. The rest of the park was clean and everythink worked. The people at the desk were very nice and helpful. I would stay here again.

This was a very nice park. They had a free USA Today, cookies, and a breakfast bar in the morning. The dog run was nice enough - better than most we have used. The reason I did not give them a 10 is that the WiFi was a little expensive, and I think WiFi is like the pool, dog run, or lounge/TV area and should be part of the free amenities at an upscale park. The people were very nice and helpful. While here - if you like Mexican food - go to La Posta in Old Mesilla to eat.

Nice place to stay. They have a shuttle that will pick you up in front of your RV and take you where you want and then bring you back to your RV later. One night we used it when it was raining and went to a casino buffet and back to the motorhome and never got wet. They also have free WiFi. The only problem I found was that many other campers did not clean up after their pets and this is not really the park's fault. I might have given them a 10 if I had won some money at the slots - just kidding. This is a nice park to stay at when visiting the casinos or Memphis.

The park is very nice, but a little expensive in my opinion. WiFi not included in price and also a little pricey, but they had email service computers in the Recreation area. They have very nice managers and campground workers and a clean campground. We stayed a couple of extra days and met nice people there. They also had a nice dog walk area.

I guess I expected more for the price. It is not on the beach by any means. The WiFi was very high and not part of our nightly rate. Many parks we have been to for a lot better price included WiFi free. The spaces were VERY small and tight. For the money they charge and the name of the park, we expected some beach - not so. It is a good little walk away. It is gated and secure but the views include office areas and tall office type buildings - not beaches. The landscaping was nice, the people were nice, it was clean and the pool was nice. Our slideout hit the bushes.

Very interesting place to visit, but real real big. This place is like its own city. The office people were very nice and we liked our stay here but it is kind of crowded for our taste. Lots of houses and park models mixed in with the RV sites.

Nice clean campground. Sites are a little close but OK. People in office were very nice. Close to interstate. Lots of permanent or seasonal type trailers.

The $31 a night included a $3 each per person per day for entrance to the park which they require and a $25 "premium" site rate. The site was $25 and then 2 people at $3 each per day for $31 per night. It was worth it. We liked the park and the people running it. We also paid $15 per night and $6 per day entrance fee for a "standard" site which was also nice. The premium sites are first come first serve. They also have some sites which are bayfront versus oceanfront. It was very very windy at the ocean sites and others said it was that way most all of the time. Could not use awning. The bayfront sites were much less windy if this matters to you. Also the bayfront did not have the salt spray problem.

We liked this resort. It was quiet and close to town and close to The Passion Play. You can have a wide open site or a site with trees and we had a good place to walk the dog. They need to offer wifi though and it was hard to level the rig on our site.

Could not tell we were in the middle of a big city at all. The owners are nice and the park is very clean. The WiFi was a little expensive and we did not have a very good place to walk the mutt. The entrance in and out is a little tight with a bigger rig and a tow. It is best to come in through the main road entrance. Close to the I20 exit and shopping and restaurants nearby as is a huge Target store for incidentals. I would stay here again if in the area.

Very nice park with lots of expensive rigs around. Problems were that we could not very easily get to the trash area and they need more trash cans about the park and they also had very low water pressure. Maybe the city and development area is taxing the water supply beyond its capability. We also asked for a standard site and they don't guarantee that so the site was a more expensive premium one when we arrived so best as I can tell, you don't really know the actual rate for positive until you check in. We had a nice time there and would stay there again.

This campground was OK for a trip to the National Monument because it is so close, but parking width and such is a little tight in many of the spots. They were also having some electrical problems while we were there. Overall it was OK and I would stay there again if we were passing through.

I rated this place a "2" because in my opinion I am sure there is a worse place somewhere that deserves a "1" but I have not been there yet. How they can get a Good Sam rating is a mystery to me - also in my opinion. We pulled in the front and tried to get out by way of their circle and almost got stuck in the huge mudholes. We left. We would not stay there. In reflection, I think this is the only park we have ever turned into and just left after looking at it. We turned in and my wife said, "I am not spending the night here." And that was that.

This was an excellent park for the low nightly rate. Full hook ups at a good area for 20 bucks is hard to find. There is a golf course sort of across the street and down a little. There is fishing at the municipal park area, baseball diamonds, and a large recreation area. We stayed here while visiting Fredricksburg and had a great time. The employees that run it are very nice and helpful. They have some pull through sites toward the front without a lot of shade and an area in the rear in a pecan grove with lots of shade trees. The only complaint I had at all is the site areas are gravel and ours was a little hard to level on.

This park is OK for a nightly stopover, but I think the price is a little high for what you get here. I have paid similar price per night for a whole lot nicer place to stay. One positive for the park is that it is the best thing in the area. I stayed at another park in the area going through and this KOA is by far the best choice if you have to stay in Texarcana for a night or so. They have a good night/after hours check in box. The park is very near the interstate and an easy on and off.

This park is an OK place to stay in San Antonio. They were supposed to get me to a $27 rear site when I called and reserved, but when I got there it turned into a $32 site because the $27 sites were not available, but I saw available $27 sites open when I was there. I might recommend you secure your site number and nail down a firm rate before arrival. The park was nice and clean and the people were OK. I think the rate was high for what is there. The sites are a little narrow for a higher rating or the nightly rate they charge in my opinion- you are real close to your neighbor. Across the street there was an awning and the neighbor's slide almost touching. The park is clean and quiet and there is a small fenced dog area.

We stayed here for a few days while visiting the Carlsbad Caverns. This campground is very nice with large pull through sites and very nice owners. They have a "no refund" policy you should note so you might get a day or so initially and extend your stay as needed day to day. There is a good dog area also. One note is that if you are staying here to visit the Carlsbad Caverns that the park is not - not near the caverns. It is several miles on the north of Carlsbad city and the caverns are several miles to the south of the city. It is quite a drive to the caverns from this park and there are parks located in Carlsbad city that would be OK to use for the caverns tours. For the geographical location and gravel sites, I think the price is a little high, but the park is nice. There are no conveniences very closeby so buy your groceries before getting there. Side note: we found a Mexican restaurant named Cortez in Carlsbad city that was very good.

I would not stay here again. We were traveling and used one of the popular RV books to find a place to overnight. This place is not very near or convenient to the interstate in my opinion. I wish I had looked at the reviews here at this website before calling and getting there. I could go on and on but do not really need to. There is a KOA near the interstate on the Texas side of Texarcana that is too expensive for what is there, but I would stay there instead if I needed a place to stop. I thought about giving a lower score than a 3 but they did have concrete drive and pads.
