Overall it was clean and always kept up. Most, not all staff was nice. It's rare when the Wi-Fi works. Very rare. Only 13 TV channels. Spaces are sardine tight. Most awnings are just about touching the slide next to them. Very, very expensive laundry and not enough machines for the amount of campers. Now for the biggest issue. Rent is due every 4 weeks, not every month. What this means is you end up paying for 13 months per year. This place is very expensive for what you get. Many long-timers here without the stuck-up attitude. I always felt very safe walking late nights. Getting LP gas was a hassle as you had to drive 20 minutes to the closest LP station. If you are a millionaire, a truck would deliver for $10 per gallon, if he shows up. The area is second to none. The boardwalk is one minute away. More then 25 restaurants are less then one minute away. At least 5 you can walk to in a few minutes from your RV.
The last poster tells more lies then cops and politicians. The owner don't even drink, not even beer. But he does have a temper and can be a grouch. The manager is the greatest human being you will ever cross paths with. Top service is what you get here. We just left from an extended stay. This is one of the best RV parks in the southwest USA. Very large lots, you will never be cramped. You have garbage pick up right at your door every morning, free newspaper every morning and always hot coffee at the ready. They put on a super bowl party for all RV guests for FREE and holy shoot was it an expensive spread. You have a large Equestrian park next door with all kinds of events such as Rodeo, barrell racing, custom and antique car shows and fairs and most of them are free and just a minute walk away. There is baseball going on every night as well as a large fishing pond. Close to everything, clean modern restrooms, clean modern cheap laundromat. Don't park on the grass y'all, you would not do that to your neighbor, don't do it there. $395/m and $495 for premium ultra large backup to woods lots.
Have you ever gotten peeved off when a park advertises pet area and it turns out to be a microscopic 10'x10' area fenced in with rocks or mud ground? This RV park has the largest dog area in the USA. All beautiful grass with real (not fake) fire hydrants scattered all over the place. Its about a half acre for the dogs. The park is nice and well kept. Looks like 2 of the foot bridges washed out due to the Hurricane IKE. The river was down on our visit and calm. Not a pretty river but moving water is always nice. Roads are paved but a few pot holes. Many shaded sites and well spread out. Yes we would go there again.
Another visit and another perfect 10 score. We arrived about 3 weeks after hurricane IKE and they were still cleaning up downed trees and debris but the place was in good shape. We stayed 5 days this time. I notice they installed AC in the bathrooms which is a good thing. Place is pitch black dark at night with all the tree cover. The lake is beautiful as always. Catfishing is second to none. It's not even a challenge to catch them. We caught about 50 and put them all back in. Only complaint: Still no Wi-Fi or cable. Only 3 TV stations can be had and 2 are religious junk. Best park in the country !
Our visit was a nightmare. We backed into our spot and did not have the necessary 35' of cord to reach the power pole. So we went back and complained and she put us into another spot. Could not reach that one either. While walking around I noticed nearly everyone had long extension cords. If that is what is needed then by golly advertise it in the Woodalls or Trailer Life book. 4th try we got a space where we just reached with our standard 20' cord. Turned out to be the nicest spot with great lake views. The host said she has to keep trying to find us a spot because fees are non refundable. I feel if they were unable to accommodate you then they should refund you. Lucky she bumped a reservation for us. I feel sorry for whoever she bumped. Overall the park is nice. But bring an extra 20' power cord. There is one power pole per 8 sites. Wires are everywhere in the backs of the RVs. Good price made the trouble worth it.
We have stayed here many times over the past few years. We love the heavy trees and sounds of Elk in the woods. The most friendly staff who always escort you to your site. This time we experienced something new. We all know there are some real bad people in the world but rarely a real bad RVer. We woke up to find some one stole our waste hose. Talk about low lifes. But it was a one time incident. I would go back again and again. Try the Campus Cafe in town. Great coffee drinks, great breakfast and lunch too.
Our most favorite campground in the USA. Upon our first visit 2 years ago to this camp I fell hard for the beautiful area of Coldspring, Texas. So I bought our retirement property on the big lake. Everything about this place is beautiful. The perfectly done grassy lawns, smooth paved roads, heavy tree cover, well kept grounds. And oh the lake front sites are the very best. Drive by Lake Livingston State Park and come here. The only negative thing I can say about this camp is the office staff seemed like a typical government employee. If you are lucky you will experience a lightning storm over the lake in the middle of the night. Pay the extra $5 for the lake front site.
The smallest sites in the USA. No room for slide, no room for awning, even your RV stairs hits the hedges and you have to step to the side to get in and out. Our tires were off the cement pad on both sides. Maintenance man was extra nice. Office staff was not. If you don't have those little steel roller wheels on your rear end then do not go in that park. The deep deep driveway ruts left by other RVers. Most narrow roads of any RV Park in America. Loud I-15 noise. Never again for me. We were just passing through. For $55 we should have gotten a week rather then one night. Highway robbery !!
As others have said, this place is expensive. But you do get what you pay for in life. Everything is top notch. A few extra dollars gets you a river front site but you can not see the river behind the 10' high wall. You do hear it rushing by and it will cause you to sleep well. The river is not the prettiest river in the world but the sound of it rushing is nice. Our favorite thing is the outdoor cafe. What a great breakfast for like $2.00. It wasn't even worth cooking inside for us. The cook was extra friendly and made anything you wanted.
I liked the place. We have been back 2 times and gambling is not even on our things to do list. They charge a tad extra to be on the cliff's edge but the wind is constant 60+ MPH and never stops. Strangely it is not windy away from that edge. If you don't mind the wind you will be treated to the best infinite view out your RV window. I think you can see more then a hundred miles. Even if you don't get an edge slip there are walking trails along the edge to see those wonderful views. Nice people in the front office. Small clubhouse with games and pool table. There are many many things to do nearby even if you do not gamble.
I'm going to go ahead and say this place was great!!! We headed for the area to visit family and quickly learned it was not only spring break but the Houston Rodeo time. So we found it hard to find an RV site anywhere near the city. We got lucky and found this place had a spot due to a cancellation. We liked it so much we decided to stay one more day for a total of 4, and walked into the office where the husband and wife team who ran it were very friendly. I still can not believe this to this day. They said to just stay the extra day at no charge: FREE! This was during the Houston Rodeo where as many as a hundred thousand visitors are in town with RVs who would have paid a hundred dollars for that site. Ok now the facilities. The lake is beautiful. The only thing I did not like was no dogs were allowed on the paved walking paths all around the lake. That is stupid since 80% of RVers take their pets with them. It did have a first class club house with games, movies, huge screen TV, soft couches, and a computer room for use: free. As far as the previous complaints about the area? It was not that bad. This place was well sealed in fences and gates. So we ended up going to the Rodeo and liked that too.
We have been staying here for about 4 years now about 4-6 times a year. This is our favorite close by (3hr drive) from home camp. Always clean and friendly staff. Nice grass on every site. Next door from a car rental so we don't even bother to tow our car up there. I always thought the price was a tad high but we go anyway because we love it in Cedar City. So much to do in and around town. Stocked store with homemade fudge and ice cream and hot specialized drinks in the winter.
The worst dump I have seen in 21 years of full time camping. Honest. We called in advance to verify availability but no one ever answers the phone. We went anyway. No one in the office so we sat for 10 min. and she came walking up complaining about having to call the police again because of campers fighting. We all go inside and she tells us she only has 50A hookups and charges $25 to purchase a 30A adapter. So before we even answered her the phone rang and she is gabbing with her boyfriend about a date. In the mean time customers are piling up inside the office. I just looked at my wife and waved her to come on. We left without a word spoken. Outside an older couple leaving said they would not give them $25 for a 30A adapter if it was the last one on earth. So we drive out to the end of the driveway and start looking at our Woodalls book. About 3 minutes later this office woman comes screaming to get the **** out of here. I guess this is Black Bart hospitality. I would not go there again if it was the last camp in the world.
If you can get through the guard booth? Pull in your mirrors and hold your breath. I think there was 6" on each side of the cement towers left when I crept through. They refused to honor Good Sam card. I thought the price was ok but they do not tell you that everything is extra. $5 for dump, $5 for cable. But you are not told this until you are in and hooked up. A security man will come by and take your money again. Club house was closed. The lake is beautiful, again very low water levels due to no rain. It is a monster of a walk to the water and it is all down hill. If you are a paying member of the marina they drive you up and down the hill in carts. I would not stay there again but that decision was made when we were leaving and found out the dump was extra, even to a camper who already paid for his site.
About 75% of this camp are full time residents. Some of the overnight area backs up to the residents and they are some very old dumpy RVs. RVs that are sinking into the ground they are so old. A short walk to the lake but it is very very low due to the drought. Its ok for an overnighter. Not a bad place overall. Over stocked store and nice lady at the desk.
I read so many complaints about the red dust. It never even dawned on me. My only problem was the tiny pebbles that managed to stick to your sneakers and get inside our MH. I agree with everyone they are all very very friendly. This was our second stay there. That construction in the back has been stalled for the past 2 years so there is no noise back there anymore. The trees and rustic feel is part of the experience. Clean fresh cool air and you will hear the Elk roar back in that forest. Oh and they have AZ lottery there too !
