I have never disagreed so strongly with recent reviews of a park. Nines? Are you kidding me?? This place was awful! Ninety percent of the rigs in here are permanent and absolutely filthy. Looks like most people leave them here and come for the weekend. The electric and cable wires are nailed to and strung through the trees. It's like a giant, jury-rigged maze of wires up there. I've never seen anything so tacky. Yes, all the trees provide a lot of shade, but so much so that there is no grass anywhere, just dirt and gravel. And mud. We have a 35' fifth wheel and had a terrible time maneuvering around the trees to get to and into our spot. Many trees are right next to the road. Lots of roots above the ground which made leveling fun. Weekends are loud as several people blast their stereos outside all day long. This is a large campground but only 3 washers and 3 dryers, one dryer was broken. Washers were expensive at $1.75 per load, dryers are $1.25. I hated it and will never return.
At first glance, this looks like a really nice park. There are lots of mature landscaping, and paved roads. But the sites are SO NARROW! Barely 8 feet wide, with very little room between sites. And that bit of room is FULL of this landscaping, which encroaches even further on the limited space. I barely got my one slide out. The website says all sites accommodate multiple slides, but that's not true. I saw more than one where people had to leave slides in due to trees in the way. The indoor pool was nice because it was shaded during the heat of the day, but needed ventilation, the chlorine smell was almost overwhelming. There are lots of permanent people in the back, my neighbor liked to keep his door open, play loud music, and run his foul mouth on the phone a lot. I would not stay here again.
It is a nice enough park, right on the river. The nicest thing was a common area on the river, so you could sit by the river and enjoy even if your site wasn't next to it. Paved roads made bike riding easy for my kids. The playground was pretty cheesy. The big negative was getting smoked out every night by all the campfires. I would have loved to leave my windows open during the beautiful weather, but I couldn't.
This park was great. A previous reviewer stated the pool was unusable. I didn't find this to be the case. Crowded sometimes, but never unusable. The bathrooms were clean every time we used them. We had an end site, so had a bigger yard. The views were fabulous. It would need to be paved, with a bit bigger sites to get a 10. I would definitely stay here again.
This place should be about $15 a night, but they can get away with more because its so convenient to Yellowstone. It was a gravel parking lot with lots of weeds. The only saving grace was a lot of tall pine trees between the sites for shade. Sites were so narrow my neighbor's picnic table was mostly in my site. The town is not attractive at all once you get off the main shopping street. Next time I would try a campground near one of the other entrances.
We overnighted here on our way through Wyoming. Its in a fairly desolate-seeming part of the state, but it's very clean, has friendly staff, and HUGE sites. All gravel but very wide, and the longest I've seen in our year of travel. No need to unhook the toad if you don't want to. No playground or anything for kids, but it's a great overnight spot. I would definitely stay again.
Price shown based on a 7 night stay. This is a nicely kept little park. Most sites are terraced on the side of a mountain, and at first glance, look like maneuvering might be difficult, but its not. We had no trouble in our 35' fifth wheel. Sites are a bit narrow, but you'll have no trouble getting slides on both sides out. The owner and manager are very nice, and very helpful. I got little gift packages for each kid AND the dog when I checked in. I know a previous poster had an issue with the lower dog walk being near a leach field, but I've never heard of that being detrimental to anyone's health. The upper dog area is up a steep hill, and there is some rubbish up there, not trash, but bits of broken up concrete, wood pile, brush, stuff like that. Neither official dog area is ideal at all, but there is a nice spot up on the hill behind the office where you can go, and would be a perfect place to fence in for a really nice dog run. The other negative here is the price of the laundry facilities. $1.75 for washers and the same for dryers. I thought that was pretty steep. There are also only 3 of each machine, but I didn't have any trouble getting my laundry done. I would have done more, but decided to save it for the next park due to the price. We found this park extremely convenient to get around Grants Pass, which is a lovely little town. We would definitely stay here again.
This is a small, very well maintained park. There are several long-term residents, but all sites were uncluttered and neat looking. It is in a rundown area of town, but I felt perfectly safe. I didn't feel especially welcomed though. The lady on the phone told me not once, not twice, but 3 times about dogs. "I don't charge for 'em and I don't clean up after 'em." I have a big dog, that I always clean up after. Nothing irks me more than little yappy dog owners who don't clean up after themselves. I didn't care to be beaten over the head with it though. Also, I have two kids, and I was specifically told to keep them out of other people's sites. (Duh, I also know this.) I've been fulltiming for almost a year now, and have never had any other park feel the need to specifically tell me this. Fortunately I have family in the area, so we didn't spend a lot of time at the RV. Sites were easy to back into, but not much room between them. There are lots of trees large enough to provide shade for everyone though. Nice enough park if you don't have kids or dogs. If I ever get back to Redding, I'll check out one of the other parks in the area, even though they cost more.
Rate was based on 10 day stay. It was pretty with the mountains on two sides. An okay campground. Staff was very friendly. We had a clogged sewer pipe upon arrival, but they fixed it immediately. Streets were older, paved, and had pea gravel here and there, which made it hard for my young kids to ride bikes. My big problem with this place was the rule that said you have to physically be with your kids on the playground. We were parked right across the street from the playground, with a full view, and could hear the kids. It wasn't enough though, management called me to say I had to be out with them. They chose not to enforce the rule about dogs being tied out. One particular dog barked furiously every single time he saw my dog. It was annoying. The other big turnoff was all the smokers. Every time I went out to walk the dog, the cigarette stench was in the air. Our site was not long enough for the trailer and our vehicle, we had to park elsewhere. Overall it was a good base for the things we wanted to do, and it was quiet.
We only did an overnight here. I agree with the other latest reviews, large sites, well kept, older park. The lady in the office was very nice. Nice view of Truth or Consequences, which is an arty little town, with lots of murals around. Anyway, I only gave it a 6 because of all the burrs. Walking the dog was a nightmare. Even in the dirt she picked them up, and they are vicious stickers. If your dog is like mine, and won't pee in the dirt, don't stay here. I have no idea if the other parks in town have the same burr issues.
Price is Passport America price, normal rate is $40 a night. The roads are very narrow, and not well maintained pavement, but we had no trouble navigating them. Sites were long enough for our 34' trailer and truck, plenty wide enough, fairly level. Most sites had tall bushes between them for a bit of privacy. There are lots of shade trees. This is the first park I've been to that has a dog park centrally located, instead of stuck out in the back 40. The staff were very friendly and helpful. 150 sites and 4 "overflow" primitive sites. We would definitely stay here again.
Price reflects $4 for each of our two kids, which I thought was pricey. The park was nearly deserted when we were there, it seemed pretty nice, long and wide sites. The staff were very friendly, and filled our propane tank instantly for us. We were fairly near the playground, so the kids got to go play while we set up, which always makes it easier. The park is very convenient to downtown Fredericksburg. I wish we had had more than one night. I would definitely stay here again.
This is, without a doubt, the worst park I have been in. We stayed here overnight on our way through Texas. I thought it would be okay for just one night, since I get tired of paying higher prices for such a short time. If I had no kids and no dog, it would be okay. I could have just hidden in the RV and never looked outside. This place is filthy. Its all dirt, what little overgrown grass there is, is strewn with broken glass, torn aluminum cans, etc. Plenty of stuff to cut your pooches' feet. I did not let my kids outside. Payment is still on the honor system, there is a drop box. The owner lives a few blocks away, and came through the property a couple of times. He was pretty nice, and helped us pick a spot. Oh yes, some sites are 50 amp only, but no way to tell until you try to plug in, so check that first if you have 30 amp. The site was pretty level. Wide enough for our one slide, but not if you have slides on both sides.
The entrance was a little weird, no name on the building, and you had to drive through the Conoco parking lot to get to it, not down a road. I didn't like having to return the gate card the next morning, just one more thing to do. Plus, no one was in the office all morning, had to go to the gas station to return the card. Overall the park was neat enough, our site was perfectly level. The thing I didn't like at all, was the dog waste everywhere. I have a dog, but I always pick up. I also have 2 little kids, and having to watch out for all the land mines was disgusting. If we were staying any longer than overnight, I would have had to pick it up. I think this park is overpriced for what you get. But its good for an overnight.
This is a fantastic park. The sites are huge, most have a large tree on each side. There are no pull-throughs, but the sites are so large, even newbies like us had no problem backing in. We had no trouble leveling. This park is like a giant neighborhood, everyone was very friendly. There is an active social hall, community dinners, hobby get together, etc. The only thing my kids missed is a playground, but I doubt they get enough kids in here to justify one. Also, be sure to eat at Lambert's Cafe in Foley, it was quite an experience.
