A beautiful park located on Puddingstone Lake. East Shore RV Park is clean, spaces are very large, and lots of room between you and your neighbors, especially in the B Section. We stayed in B172, and had a gorgeous view of the lake, with sunsets that were awesome! Strong 50 amp power, and excellent water pressure. Lawns are green and well manicured. Two pools, one for families, and one adult pool were clean and very nice. Roads are nicely paved and maintained. Store and laundry were well stocked and maintained. We will definitely stay here again.
Not fond of KOA's any longer as they are over priced and sites are extremely close together. This one was no different. Roads are so narrow, and sites are so close together, that larger rigs have to ask people to move their tow vehicles to pull out of their pull-through sites! When we arrived, we were assigned a site, but when we found our site, it was occupied. Office staff stated they had forgotten and made a mistake, so we were assigned another site. Unable to put out our awning due to tall sewer vent pipe located within 4 feet of our rig! If rig next to us had not been a small class C, we would not even have been able to put out our slides! We watched many rigs nearly take off our driver's side mirror as they attempted to round the corner of our site to leave the park. There is no playground for children, and this is definitely NOT a family oriented park! Other than the small swimming pool, there is absolutely nothing for children to do here. Dog walks are very narrow and small, but sufficed. Road noise is very loud, but since there is no where to sit outside anyway, we kept our windows closed. There is a picnic table, but it is situated within 2 feet of your neighbors sewer line so very unhealthful and unattractive! Would Never recommend this park to anyone. We will never return! Owners should be ashamed of charging more than $20.00 for this run down, rat infested park. Saw several when walking our dog, including one hit by a car and left on pavement.
Gravel roads could use more gravel to prevent the mud and potholes from being so bad. Mostly long-term residents, with some needing to clean up their sites. Many dogs running loose without leashes, and residents not cleaning up after their pets. Owner/office staff not available during our entire stay. Had to ask full time residents for help regarding issues with our site. Maintenance man was very helpful and friendly! Sites are gravel, with small strips of grass between. Some more level than others. Hookups worked ok, but power waned at times. Water pressure was fine. Great cable TV with plenty of channel choices. Picnic tables were very worn, cracked and plenty of splinters. Park backs up to Hwy 101, so road noise is a problem. Since it was cool at night we kept our windows closed, but would be very noisy in summertime. Restrooms and showers are kept very clean. Laundry room is small, but very clean and worked well. Only $1.25 to wash and dry, and both did a good job. Shopping and restaurants located about 3 miles away on Hwy 101. Verizon cell phone and Hot Spot service worked very well in the park. If visiting in the area, would stay here again. The choices are limited in Tillamook, and this park was the best of those we checked out.
One of the nicest state parks we've ever stayed in! Sites are huge, gravel, level, and spaced very far apart. The full hook ups are located perfectly and performed well. Some sections are forested and very shady. Others are open and sunny. Our favorite site was #49, where we received the warm morning sun and cool afternoon shade. Our roof-mounted satellite dish worked extremely well, as did our Verizon cell and hot spot service. Camp hosts are very friendly and helpful. Area is very quiet, with miles and miles of hiking trails. Only 30 miles from Portland on Hwy 26, but truly a world away! We have already booked our next stay.
A very nice small park on the Tualatin River. Most sites are very close together, but we were able to get Site #79, one of the best in the park. Office staff are very helpful and friendly. Park is very clean and safe, with beautiful landscaping. Good water pressure and electricity. Steep driveway from highway is manageable, but once inside the park, concrete slabs are level and in good condition. Cable is snowy at times, and very limited number of channels. Satellite is best in lower part of the park, where less trees and obstruction from hills. We stay in this park every year when we visit family nearby. About a 20 minute drive to Portland and the wine country to the south.
This is one of our favorite parks in the USA, and definitely the Best one in Oregon! The grounds are beautiful, well groomed and the sites are spacious. Hookups are excellent, cable is great, and water pressure is very good. The office staff are very helpful and an escort is provided to guide you to your site. There is free shuttle service from your site to the casino, restaurants, and into town as well. Discounts are given at their gas station and the RV park with your player's card. The park is very quiet at night, security is excellent and there is plenty of room for group get togethers in the picnic areas of the park. They have large group fire rings, and they will start the fire for you and provide all of the logs for free! The park is very pet friendly and kid friendly as well. Plenty of space to walk along the beautiful pathways that meander throughout the large park. There is a nice playground for the kids. We love this park, and spend several days here each time we visit Oregon.
This is our "go to spot" when heading north or south on I-5. It is extremely clean, quiet, and the staff are wonderful! The spaces are roomy and long enough to leave our tow vehicle hooked up with plenty of room to spare. Restrooms are extremely clean and pool area is very nice. This is a great little park for the price, and exceeds all of the others that are too noisy due to their close proximity to I-5 in Red Bluff.
A beautiful RV park in Tucson! Extremely wide roads, gated, well lighted and excellent security 24/7. Very spacious gravel sites with large concrete patios. For just a couple of dollars more, we chose an upgraded site that had a huge stamped-concrete patio and a private grass yard. Each site has a table and 4 chairs and a beautiful, fruit-bearing citrus tree just loaded with fruit! The club house is beautiful, and also houses a great restaurant that serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. There is a full bar too! The pools (2), spas (2), restroom/shower rooms (2) and laundry rooms (2) are first class! Landscaping is beautiful and well manicured. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful and responded quickly to anything needed. This park would be a great place to "winter" and enjoy the beautiful AZ sunshine. We will definitely return to enjoy more of this gorgeous park!
Park is in an extremely rundown neighborhood, and there is no park security to prevent unwanted "guests" from walking through the park. Would not feel safe staying here for any length of time, or leaving anything of value outside. Sites are level concrete pads, close together with good hookups. Do to lack of security, did not use the restrooms, showers or laundry room; so can not evaluate the cleanliness of them. Office is only open from 1-4 p.m., so we did not visit the office due to our late arrival. The woman that took our reservation over the phone was very courteous and helpful. Would not recommend this park as a destination vacation, but is ok for a one night visit.
Park is clean, but sites are much too close together. Our bedroom slide out was only 2.5 feet from the rear slide out of the next camper! Gravel sites with concrete patios and convenient hookups. Lots of trees and grass. Small pool and very tiny jacuzzi. Picnic tables were in need of repair, as all had rotted wood, splinters and warped benches and/or tops. Area immediately surrounding park is very rundown and unsafe, but park seems to be relatively safe. There is no gate or security to prevent locals from riding and walking through the park. We were told that bike thefts are common, and to keep them locked up at all times. Close to Riverwalk area and downtown San Antonio. Would camp here again, but would not consider this a destination vacation park.
If there was a higher score than "10," this park would get it from us! Wide concrete roads, huge concrete slabs and beautiful landscaping make for an excellent experience! Beautifully manicured grass areas, a jogging track around the lake, lots of fish to catch and release in the lake, a laundry room like no other we've ever seen and a club house that rivals any country club are very impressive! And all of this at a reasonable price that is half of what we've paid for in other "dumpy" places. This park is "home base" for many cancer patients and others seeking long-term healthcare treatment at the many nearby major medical centers. The park has gone out of their way to accommodate those in need of special care, and they try hard to make their stays as comfortable, and reasonable, as possible. As a registered nurse, I was very impressed by the caring and sympathetic attitude of the managers and park staff. This park is a gem, and we will definitely stay here again when we return to Houston! This is truly one of the ONLY RV parks that deserves to title themselves as an "RV Resort!"
Very nice park close to I-10, with some freeway noise, but not bad. Park is extremely clean and nicely laid out. Concrete pads and patios, with grass in between, but fairly close together. No shared hookups. Restrooms and showers very clean and private. The laundry room was clean, well lit, but much too small for this large park that contains mostly long-term residents. Only 4 washers and dryers, so there was always a wait to try to do the laundry. When we attempted to use the cable TV, we were unable to get any reception. We changed our cable, and still no picture. We were told by several nearby campers that they too had the same issue with the cable, and no one could repair it. We told the office staff, and we were informed that the maintenance man does not work weekends, so there was nothing they could do for us until Monday. Due to the cable problem, and uncaring attitude of the office staff, we gave this park a "9" rather than a "10." This would not be our choice for a "destination park" but is great for a one or two-night stay. They call themselves the "Gulf Coast RV Resort," but they are more than an hour away from the ocean. A nice day trip to visit Galveston, but not much to do in and around Beaumont, TX. If passing through, we would stay at this park again.
The best park in New Orleans, but that doesn't say much since there's very few to chose from. Very dusty and dirty, but secure and well lit. We paid extra to have a canal site and it was roomy and and laid out well. Gravel, with a small grass area near the water. Shared hookups, picnic tables, and nice landscaping at each site. Very nice marina and dock area, as well as a boat launch. Playground for the kids and a very uniquely designed above ground pool with a waterfall. Large puddles (small lakes!) formed in the roadways after a rainstorm which made walking difficult through the park at times. Young office staff are polite, but lack knowledge of the area, attractions, and services. Park has a shuttle ($5 per person) that will take you to French Quarter 3 times daily and pick up as well. Driver is very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable of the area. Park is still in the process of development and introduced a BBQ menu while we were there. No one to wait tables, food was cold but tasted good. With improvements, hopefully the kitchen should soon be able to produce better quality. We felt the park was overpriced, but due to the limited choices in the area, they seem to have the corner on the market. Would stay here again if ever in New Orleans.
Beautiful park with stunning views of the Smoky Mountains! Park was apparently built to sell each lot, but economy did not support that, so rental spaces are available on a nightly basis. Many open areas that will eventually be developed when economy improves. Our site was a huge concrete slab, with a nice patio area. Grass between sites, and nice landscaping. Our site was 70+ feet, and very wide. Picnic tables at each site, and nice hookups. Views are awesome from every site! Laundry room, restrooms and showers are very clean. However, noticed that when walking our dog late at night, men were using the laundry room (that is in same unlocked hallway where showers are located) that were not staying in the park. There is no onsite park host currently, so not sure how security is handled. Park is very quiet and away from the terrible traffic in town. We will definitely stay here again on our next visit to the area.
Very clean park and friendly staff. Spaces are gravel with nice grassy area between sites. Restrooms and laundry are small but very clean and safe. Great for satellite, as trees are very small. Easy interstate access, and far enough away to not be too noisy. Lambert's Cafe "Home of the Throwed Rolls" will pick you up at the park and take you for a great dinner at their restaurant! Don't miss this restaurant, but go VERY hungry and be ready for some GREAT down home cooking. This is a great park for an overnight stay, and we will return again if passing through this way on our way to Nashville.
Would be OK for one night, but if you want peace and quiet, this is not your park. Road noise is terrible, and goes all night long! Located next to a Shell Gas Station that leaves the lights on all night long, as well as a run down motel that shares the driveway with the park. Even with dual-paned windows closed tightly, the road noise was awful. Sites located on front side of park are so small and squeezed so tightly together that we had to park our tow vehicle under our patio awning. Our picnic table sat inches away from sewer of next site, but since the road noise was so bad, we didn't use the table anyway. Wooden planks nailed together and then laid on the ground are what they call patios. Wood was cracked, broken and splintered. Well paved roads in the park are extremely narrow and corners are tight to maneuver a large rig. Sites are mostly gravel and most were fairly level. Recent rains had left large pools in the low areas of the roads located in the front of the park. Could not walk pets in some areas of the park due to the large pools of water covering the roads. The office staff were very nice, but were a bit pushy in trying to sell tickets for Gray Line Tours of the area. Park is clean, and has nice amenities. Have stayed at other nicer parks in Nashville, and most likely will not return to this one.
We have stayed in several parks in our many visits to Branson, but by far, Acorn Acres is THE best! We originally planned to stay 9 days, but extended our stay to 3 weeks because we loved the park and area so much. The park is quiet, clean and the staff are very friendly and helpful. Yes, it's dusty, but since Branson is built on ground rock, it's hard to prevent dust! The restrooms and laundry areas are very clean and well kept. Getting in and out of the park can be a bit tricky due to the blind hill and dip in the road near the entrance. But careful driving, and you're in or out without any problems. The park is within 2 miles of Silver Dollar City and Table Rock Lake. It's close to downtown Branson, and very quick to reach if you know your way around the "back" roads that the locals use. The office staff will help you with directions, show schedules and tickets to events in and around the Branson area. We chose to upgrade to a premium site and loved the privacy and quiet! Backed up to the forest, so it was nice and dark at night for sleeping! Lots of beautiful trees and shrubs that were turning colors all over the park. Our site was shaded nicely, and made for a wonderful place to sit out on the patio and enjoy the songs of the many birds nearby. We love Branson, and will make Acorn Acres our "home" when we return again!
Park entrance is on a busy highway with a very, very steep driveway to the office. Mostly residents in mobile homes, that have bags of trash, junk and broken down cars all over the place! Park is open to traffic from several entrances, and security is non existent. Concrete slabs are broken, with huge chunks missing. Dirty and dusty, with dead landscape made for a very poor appearance around the sites. The only positive thing we can say is that it was close to a business that we had to visit while passing through Missouri. Will NOT stay here again!
This is THE best campground in the Deadwood area by far! The owners go above and beyond to make sure your stay is comfortable, fun and relaxing. The park is located 5 miles from downtown Deadwood, so it is very quiet without traffic noise. Sites are level with grass. The only downside would be they have shared hookups, but it wasn't really a big problem. Owners keep the park and restrooms immaculate, and take pride of ownership. Owners run a great little store and restaurant on site, and the food is great! You can catch trout in their pond, and they will even fry it up for you, hence the name of the park, "Fish'N Fry Campground." Park is VERY kid friendly, and if you need cabins or a rental RV, they have that too! Park is also very pet friendly as well. Will definitely stay here the next time we're in the Black Hills area. We've stayed in a number of campgrounds in the Black Hills, and we love this one the best!
Office littered with trash, junk, and bad odors! Owner's granddaughter is running the park and doesn't have a clue how to run a business or maintain a campground! Sites are well spaced, but that is the ONLY good thing about this park. Mobile homes littered with trash and junked cars were a real eyesore. Restrooms were not locked, and had shower curtains rather than doors in both the toilet and shower areas. As a woman, I would NOT feel safe showering there, given the looks of the people hanging out in the broken down RV's and mobile homes in the park. Sites were littered with weeds and dog feces. Sprinklers in some sites were left to run for hours, creating swamps and mud pits, while the majority of sites appeared to not have received water in weeks. While walking our small dog on a leash, we had to scare off several dogs allowed to run lose in the park. After paying nearly $38 for a night's stay here, would have been better off staying in a rest stop on nearby I-90! Will never stay here again.
Spaces are gravel and dirt, with a weeds growing everywhere. No shade or privacy between sites. Homes and businesses use the same roads in the park, so dust is a big problem with the many cars coming in to the houses that are part of the park property. Area is very rundown, and did not appear safe to walk around after dark. Would definitely NOT stay here again.
Nice area, but too few sites have sewer hookup. Ample shade, and nice large sites that give you plenty of space. Area is infested with flying bugs and spiders! We were killing both in our rig constantly! Many campers, including the camp host in A-Loop, let their pets run loose! Rules not enforced at all regarding pets being on a leash, and picking up after your pooch! Very, very nice day use area with swim beach and boat launch! Due to the high temperatures and bug problem, wouldn't won't to stay at this park again.
Great park to spend a one night stay off I-84. Quiet, clean, and shuttle service from your site to the casino. Would have given the park a rating of 10, but the bathrooms could use a little updating and paint. Staff very nice, and price is excellent! Have stayed here each time we pass through, and we'll return again.
Clean park, but other than restrooms and laundry, no amenities at all. Narrow concrete sites, with small concrete patio. No picnic tables, no playground and cable TV was snowy. Mostly long-term residents, but everyone was quiet and friendly. Entrance to this park is off of a very busy highway, and is both dangerous when entering and exiting due to heavy traffic. There is also an extremely steep driveway leading from the roadway to the campground, which makes exiting the park even more challenging. We chose this park solely based on it's location to our visiting with family in a nearby town. Would not stay here again.
Gorgeous RV Park! Roomy sites, great amenities, including free shuttle service to casino and town. Staff are very friendly and courteous, and escort you to your site. Landscaping and views in this park are beautiful! Lots to do in the area, and staff will arrange tours, trips, etc. for you. A great place to stay off I-5 that is quiet, beautiful and fun! We will definitely stay here again!
We found this park to be extremely clean, and the staff was very friendly. Close to I-5, but without the traffic noise, and close to shopping and dining. Restrooms and showers were immaculate! Lots of shade and roomy sites that accommodated our big rig. Great cable too! Would definitely stay here again on our way up or down the I-5!
Very clean park right off of I-80 on east side of Truckee. Sites are extremely close together with shared hookups. We had to bring in our window awnings and slide-outs for our neighbor to exit his site! Rear of park borders forest, and is much quieter than sites near the entrance. Highway noise is loud during the day on east side of park, but tolerable at night. Very clean and large laundry room. Very large portion of sites are occupied by permanent residents, and some need to clean up their sites! Sites are level and paved, with some having small patches of grass between them, while ours (#130) had only dirt. No privacy between sites! Would not recommend this park for anything other than a short stay due to the tight spaces between sites, and lack of privacy. We camped here years ago, and sites were not shared hookups at that time, making it a great place to stay. Park is 16 miles from Tahoe City, 5 miles from downtown Truckee, and 32 miles from downtown Reno.
This was a great little park located on Highway 395 just a few miles north of the CA border. Quiet park near a pasture. Has a gas station in front, and they give 5 cent/gallon discount if you stay at the park. Diesel and gasoline both available. Park is great for overnight stays while traveling the 395 south. Lady running office was extremely friendly and helpful. Showed us to our site, and offered free coffee in the morning as well as information about the local areas. Many permanent residents in the park, but kept to themselves and were quiet and friendly.
This is one of Oregon's finest state parks! Large sites with full hookups (our site #A-01 was 86' long!) that provided lots of shade and room for our family reunion. Beautiful day use area, swimming beach, boat launch and marina where you can rent or dock your own boat. Park staff were friendly and helpful, with lots of Junior Ranger activities for the kids. Park is within walking distance to restaurants, Wallowa River and Wallowa Lake Tramway. Only 6 miles to beautiful little town of Joseph, where you can shop, dine and enjoy the many art and bronze galleries. Only negative point was that we were unable to use our Verizon Cell phone to receive or make calls. We were able to send and receive text at the park, so you won't be totally out of contact with civilization! Would highly recommend this state park!
Very nice park on Columbia River. Was very windy and hot during our visit, but 50 amp allowed us to run our air conditioning all day. Lots of grassy areas between sites, and nice paved path along river's edge. Swimming beach, picnic area and boat launch within walking distance in the park. Very quiet at night, and fun to watch the wildlife along the river's edge at sundown. Beautiful sunsets too!
Very clean park with "blacktop" camping on edge of Coos Bay. Great views of bay. Shuttle service "door to door" for casino visits. Would recommend this park if you're passing through Coos Bay area, as it is within close proximity to shopping, restaurants and Highway 101.
Nice park, but way too many cute, little bunny rabbits running around leaving their marbles everywhere! Had to remove our shoes before entering the rig due to the rabbit pellets everywhere. Short walk to nice beach, but traffic on weekends is very, very heavy. Office staff was very unfriendly at check-in, and too busy to answer questions during our stay. Road from Highway 101 to park is very rough with huge potholes that need repair. Many permanent residents in the park that do not maintain their sites appropriately.
Sites that backup to the road are extremely close together. No privacy, uneven, no space to put out chairs next to rig, and had to sit at rear of our motorhome. Construction work within 10 feet of our site went on from 6:30 a.m. until 8:30 p.m every night. Lots of noise and dust all day, and not able to leave windows open during daytime. After asking daily to be moved to a larger and more quiet site: on day 4 we were finally moved. Center row of spaces are much nicer, larger and quieter. Would only recommend sites in the middle section of the park if you have a larger rig.
Very clean and nice little park in Trinidad! Have stayed at another campground on previous visits, and this is much quieter and nicer. Park managers went out of their way to make our stay comfortable. Overgrown landscape was removed within an hour of our arrival to allow our patio awning to fully extend. Manager delivered firewood, and even included kindling, within minutes of asking. Sites are clean, private, and well manicured. Good cable, and 50 amp service. Grassy sites with gravel pads. Lovely pond with gorgeous Lilly pads in full bloom made for a peaceful place. There is a walking path to Patrick's Point State Park for hiking and beach activities. Mangers provided lots of printed information for local activities and day trips. Most of park spaces are full-time residents, but all sites are clean and well manicured. Owners take pride in landscaping and cleanliness. Even though restrooms and laundry are older, they are pristine and in good working condition. We would recommend this park for anyone wishing to visit the lovely CA Redwoods and wanting to stay in a quiet, beautiful little park.
Great park, close to town, but far enough from Hwy 1 to be quiet and calm. Restrooms are the cleanest and nicest we have ever seen! Owner's wife even put fresh flowers in the ladies room! Site 89 was level, and our satellite worked great. Laundry room had new front-loader washers, and dryers were large capacity as well. Owner was a nice gentleman that "patrolled" the park throughout the day to ensure everything was in good order. Stopped to visit with guests, and asked if there was anything we needed on several occasions. Large gravel sites that provided lots of privacy. Fire rings and tables at each site. Beautiful landscaping, and lots of grassy, open areas for everyone's enjoyment. We would definitely recommend this park for anyone from a tent to a big rig.
Would recommend this KOA as a destination vacation park! Extremely courteous and helpful staff, that were willing to assist with anything needed. Immaculate grounds and facilities, with plenty to do for any age group. Close for day trips to San Francisco, Bodega Bay and wine country. Park offers tours to local attractions right from the office! Very forested sites, that provided shade and privacy. Will definitely return for a longer stay next time!
As always, this KOA is fantastic! Beautiful landscaping, clean, safe and extremely friendly staff made our stay very pleasant. Our grandchildren traveled with us, and they too had a great time. This family owned park shows pride of ownership, and they go above and beyond to make sure your stay is enjoyable!
This park became a KOA about a year ago, and they are making lots of improvements. But the sites are definitely too close together! We were assigned site 74, and found that we were unable to fully extend our patio awning because it would have hit the neighbor's rig! In addition, the sewer, water and electric for our neighbor, ended up being right in the middle of our patio area, so we were unable to use our table for outdoor dining. With our windows open, we could clearly hear the TV and conversations of our neighbors on both sides. We complained to the manager, and he was extremely cordial and apologetic. He offered to move us to another site, but since our stay was short, we decided to just make the best of it for 2 nights. All of the staff we encountered were very courteous and friendly. Improvements are being made to the landscaping, restrooms and overall appearance of this park. We probably won't return to this park due to the small sites, but for smaller rigs, it is very satisfactory.
Very clean and nice park in a good location to most area activities. Staff were friendly and helpful. Sites in rear portion of park border a residential area, and are very quiet. Sites in front of park are on busy roadway and very noisy. Very large and clean laundry area with reasonable rates! Sites could be a little more level, but were well kept.
Park staff keep the sites immaculate! Our site was raked every day, and trash picked up promptly. Nice lake with lots of bird, turtles and fish. Park is close to all attractions in St. Augustine, and staff are helpful with information regarding the area.
Campground roads are very narrow and it was hard to exit pull through sites in a big rig. Also, campground is infested with sand gnats that leave bites much worse than mosquitoes! Staff are indifferent to insect problem, and don't bother to inform campers that they have a sand gnat problem. Easy to prevent bites by using insect repellent, but since sand gnats are too small to see, the staff should alert visitors so they can protect themselves!!!
This is a fantastic campground with the best owner/operators we've ever encountered. The facility is immaculate, with beautifully maintained sites. It is a quiet park, away from the crowds of Gatlinburg, but close enough to drive: easily within 10 minutes. Absolutely beautiful fall colors in October, and the owners decorate the park nicely for the season. On one rainy day of our stay, the owner conducted an Asian food cooking class and made sure everyone received tons of samples! She and her husband, go out of their way to make your stay enjoyable, and made us feel like family! They gave us valuable information about activities in the area, as well as helpful directions to "secret" non-tourist sights. We will definitely return to this park the next time we visit Gatlinburg, TN.
It is a nice campground, but most sites were very flooded when we arrived, and were worse after an all-night rain storm went through the area. There is no drainage at any sites, so water was standing approximately 2 to 5 inches deep everywhere! The roads were uneven, so deep pools formed, making it impossible to take walks through the park. I would recommend this park again, but only during dry weather. The staff are not very friendly, but very efficient.
