A nicely laid out RV resort with good roads and adequate space between lots. The staff is pleasant and there many activities to participate in if you choose to. Cons: the electric and water connections are located in the rear of each lot. Having them located in the middle of the lot would have been convenient, so you may need extensions. Last, there are trains going through the middle of town all night blowing their horns. I did not get a full nights sleep the three nights we were there. The trains are LOUD! I will probably avoid Bensen, Arizona, the next time we are in the area.
This park is not in good shape. The roads, a combination of dirt, mud when it rains, and asphalt, are in bad shape and very narrow. The turns are sharp particularly for bigger rigs. The concrete pads are the narrowest I ever seen. Most of the residents are permanent types that look like they have been there a long time. The $33 nightly fee is way over priced, more so for the people that are using the park to get service gone on their rigs at the dealer that owns the park. Seems a $10 nightly fee would be appropriate for travelers getting service done. There is a huge Cabella’s directly across the street and they have a sign there pointing to “RV parking”. If you need a stop over I recommend Cabella’s. Save the $33 for nicer parks.
Somewhat difficult and tricky getting here: Do your homework and plot your route carefully. RV park is behind a video store: it’s an okay park for a couple of days if you are in the area visiting. Our site was not level and others show signs of severe damage because of heavy rains. Wi-Fi is weak. We had one or two bars so switched to our Verizon hot stop with 5 bars. There are a lot of permanent types that seem to mind their own business. The laundry and pool areas were serviceable and clean. The pull-throughs are short, but workable. The roads are narrow, paved and doable. We recommend unhooking toad before going to your assigned site.
No question, the nicest RV resort we have stayed at. The roads are wide, paved, and the pads are cement with an adjoining patio area. The office staff is excellent and will go out of their way to make you visit enjoyable. The resort and the facilities are immaculate, and the sites are level with either a picnic table or table and chairs provided. They also offer RV storage if needed. Electricity is billing based on usage. The WiFi was good 95% of the time. This is a destination resort. We definitely will return.
Davis Mountains State Park will be closed to all day and overnight use from Tuesday, September 3, 2013 through February, 2014. Indian Lodge will remain open for overnight lodging, and the Black Bear Restaurant will be open during standard business hours. The closure is due to major upgrades being done on the park’s utility systems; in addition the trail system in the Limpia Canyon Primitive Area will be improved and six miles of trail added. The park’s new bird viewing area will also be completed during this time.
Small, older KOA that is well maintained. Friendly staff, eager to help; we were escorted to our site and had to move to another one because of trees and our satellite. Some newer cement pull-thoughs; they charge $3 more for cement pads. Easy in and out off of Hwy 30 heading in either direction. We would stay here again if passing through the area.
I find it odd that the last review of this COE park was three years ago. The park is well maintained and offers a lot of shaded sites in the hot weather. Bathrooms were clean and serviceable. There is a great boat launch available. We stayed in a pull-through site that required us to unhook our toad and park it in the front of the site because the utilities are located at the very end of the site. So, asking for a pull-through so you don’t have to disconnect a toad doesn’t work with a 40’ motor home. As you drive in, drive directly to the gate. The building near the entrance has nothing to do with this COE park. We would return if in the area.
This is a 5 star resort. I concur with all other positive posts. Catherine’s Landing sits on 400 acres of what use to be pasture land for a large dairy farm. There are currently 120 RV sites and 13 cottages with a great pool and general store. The bathrooms and showers are kept spotless, and garbage is picked up twice daily at your site. I talked with the general manager and he is personable and eager to meet your needs or solve any problem you might have. I suggested it would be a good idea if RV resorts had ladders available because many RVers don’t carry them. He said “we have one in our maintenance shop; I can have someone bring it over to your site if you like”. And get this, it’s okay to wash you rig at your site – UNBELIEVEABLE! There is even a recommended mobile wash or wax guy you can call if interested. I was so impressed with the operation I extended our stay another week. My only ding during my stay is the dirt and grass that was blown up all over the place when the maintenance people were using their riding lawnmowers and trimmers: Not sure how you solve that problem, but I don’t appreciate having a cloud of dust blanketing my motor home and toad.
We registered and drove to our assigned site which was occupied by someone else. I was told it was a computer error. NOT! It was an employee input error, not the computer. I think the park is overpriced for what you get. The WiFi was weak and slow. Concrete pads are not level. There are many permanent types staying there. In all fairness, the park is clean with adequate room between sites. The pool and playground areas were well designed and clean. We camped here in a motor home. We would come again only as a stop over, not a destination.
Great stop-over between Memphis and New Orleans. Easy in and out off of I-55. Owners are very friendly and helpful. They even recommended having pizza delivered for dinner. We would stay here again if passing through.
Small State Park with easy on/off access from I-10. Roads are narrow and sites are small. Their definition of a pull-through means a small area that curves at 180 degrees with trees on both sides. If you are 40 foot or bigger it will give you pause to rethink asking for a pull-through. You are much better off with a back-in. We like parks with more space. Also, no satellite will all the trees. And, many trees with low hanging branches on the way to the park entrance. Not sure if it’s county property or private land. The waterfall is overrated. Just my opinion. Would not stay here again.
Easy off/on heading north/south on I-75 in Florida. This is an older Three Flags park with all the basics that seem to be in working order. This is a good overnight stop with shopping close by. Big rig friendly with easy pull though sites. Would stay again, but it is not a destination resort.
Large, private resort with mostly permanent type trailers and homes with RV lots scattered throughout the resort. Many lots are waterfront with man made channels coming in from the bay so you could dock your boat next to your lot. We didn’t use any of the facilities so nothing to report there. We spent most of our time in Key West and the surrounding area. We did see a very large boat launch with plenty of parking for resort guests. If fishing is your thing then this place is for you. The lots are small and would not recommend this for anything over 40’. We camped here in a 40’ motor home and would not come again because of the small lots. Still, this is a 5 star resort. Note: There is a one time fee of $53 paid at the gate that goes to the association when you check in. Our nightly rate of $48 for our week stay reflects that fee as part of the nightly rate.
Cypress Woods is a beautiful up-scale gated RV resort with 499 lots. Most lots are privately owned; although, there seems to be a large number available for rent during the year. This resort is about a half mile off I-75, going through Fort Myers, Florida, exit 139, then head east to the end of the road (Luckett Road). The winter months are reserved a year or more ahead of time. The staff are ready to help whenever possible. Note: The “D” lots offer wider roads and larger lots to accommodate rigs up to 45 feet. All major shopping is two exits south on I-75. See the resorts web site for details and amenities.
