It pains me after coming here for over 10 years and posting many stellar reviews here, to give this park less than the "10" it routinely received when it was run by owner operators. Several years back, it was sold to a chain of RV parks and as a result two things happened. First, all the beautiful flowers all around the park are no more, the beds are mostly neglected, the roads are deteriorating and the people in the office are just employees now and pretty indifferent. Secondly, don't even think of staying here if you need reliable and functional internet service. We have gone round and round with the employees and the internet "supplier" Tengo Internet for over a month. During that time, we have received maybe 2.5 weeks of marginally usable service, the rest of the time either one or both of the Wi-Fi towers were out of commission or the server was so slow most websites would time out on it. Speed test shows speeds as low as 0.1mbps down, 0.01 up, pretty awful for the represented "high speed" internet this park claims to be happy to sell you for extra money. Tengo Internet makes a fraudulent claim that they supply 4 to 10 times faster than dial up, using 0.28 mbps for dial up which is nonsense as all dial up these days is 0.64 or better. The so-called internet service in this park is big time terrible, and the absentee owners could care less, that's the bottom line. Don't stay here if you really need internet and don't have another way of getting it. Otherwise, it is still a nice, well located place, but far from what it used to be.

While it is well located for shopping, it is far from downtown and basically a very large trailer park for full timers. The daily rate is way too high for the amenities and general appearance of this place. A plus are the large sites for short timers but ours came with a junk trailer and two dead cars next door. The train noise at night can wake you up unless you sleep with all windows closed. By comparison to other parks in San Antonio in this price range, this one just doesn't measure up.

Definitely basic but quite adequate for an overnight stay. Power was good, cable TV was excellent, site was flat and very long making pull throughs very easy. No WiFi at our site. Restrooms old but clean. Quiet area. Owner was pleasant and helpful. A real bargain at the Passport America rate of $10 plus $2 for CATV.

Rate cited is Passport America. Good value at that price, pretty expensive otherwise. Convenient location but hardly 10 minutes to River Walk as claimed in advertising. Very small sites, very poor quality roads. Would stay here again.

Your basic parking lot but a very well run one. Rest rooms spotless, helpful management, spacious and clean and very well located for overnight or short term stay. Rate cited is Escape member rate.

The previous review is spot on. This place is tired and needs a face lift. It does have a decent exercise room and very good CATV. However, the Wi-Fi which you have to pay extra for is a complete flop, it basically doesn't work during the day, only late at night or very early in the morning. Office staff were pleasant. North pool is very nice.

Convenient over nighter next to the Econolodge. Advertise a $10 PA rate but demanded $15 when we checked in. Level, easy pull through, otherwise nothing to recommend it for a longer stay. Rate included tax.

Decent overnighter, easy to get to, level sites with sufficient space. Avoid the bathrooms, they really are primitive and badly need renovation.

Very nice spaces, very well run office. Nice pools, decent exercise room though hardly "state of the art" as advertised. A bit remote from shopping and, yes, there is definitely noise from the nearby airport. A bit pricey, particularly when you add on the ridiculous local taxes. It would have felt like a better value if Wi-Fi had been included and the quality of the CATV was better. If I owned this place, I'd look around and notice all the vacant spaces I have in high season and maybe realize that I needed to be more competitive. Awful lot of vacancy for this time of year.

Over nighted here and were impressed. The W-iFi was free and excellent, the pool and club house were nice, the pad took a little maneuvering but was concrete. CATV was OK but we opted to tune all the new digital stations in San Antonio directly on our HDTV and reception was excellent. Note that rate cited was PA, a good deal! We'd definitely stay here again.

Nice place in a quiet location. Exercise room, nice pool, clean laundry. Rate cited is Texas resident summer rate. Yes, we had to pay $5 per day for Wi-Fi but it worked perfectly. Very nice folks at the office, very convenient location. RV sites up front OK though the first one we tried wasn't sufficiently level. Will definitely make this our way station for final preparations before we return home to Lake Chapala, Mexico.

For what it is, a park geared to full timers and long termers, this park deserves high marks for spotless and impeccably maintained rest rooms, laundry, and office. The reception couldn't have been more welcoming. We found it to be a perfect overnighter for us, easy in and easy out. Basic but very well run.

Very spacious sites and lots of shade and trees. Wonderful bike path runs for many miles. Swimming beach if you like cold water. We took a jet boat excursion right from the park, very nice. Restrooms could have been cleaner. We had an electric/water only pull through with 50 amp service. All worked well though the pull through would be tight for anything much over 35 feet. The back ins are huge, however.

Cable TV doesn't work and Wi-Fi a bit erratic though pretty fast when running. Was able to pick up a few digital stations with my antenna. Bathrooms really could used updating and water pressure was pretty low. Laundry worked OK. Old but very clean park, but really wouldn't suggest you bring a 40 footer in here, however. Spaces really not all that large. Lots of permanents but they appear to be pretty well supervised as sites were clean. Best feature about this place is the hiker/biker trail that starts immediately across the bridge and goes for quite some distance along the river and around a very pretty park and lake. To access this, just walk out the front of the park, south on the sidewalk across the bridge and then make a right just past the end of the bridge. Be warned that Delta is a pretty hot place in the summer!

A pretty new place but maybe less money should have been spent on the office and more spent on properly constructing level sites because many were not and ours was one of the worst. Wi-Fi was erratic, we ended up tapping into another site coming from somewhere outside the park. Just crammed a little too tightly for some place in this price range. Very nicely kept, however.

Sites not as spacious as some of the Oregon State Parks we've visited, but this place has it all. A nice little lake, stunning beach, miles of hiking and biking trails, close to Astoria, a very interesting town, and a very well run and clean place. We were lucky to get in as it is very popular. Weather was pretty wet for mid June, apparently that is not unusual. Highly recommended, particular for the hiker/biker.

Agree with all the sentiments posted below. Another spotless Oregon State park with great sites, hiking and beach. Highly recommend the walk to the light house, the vistas are stunning.

I don't see how anyone could give this place less than a 10. Huge sites, wonderful hiking trails to the beach and to the nearby light house. Very clean restrooms, everything very well maintained as we learned to expect from Oregon State Parks. We loved every minute there though be warned that the hike to the light house is pretty rigorous so be prepared.

This place strikes me as one of those places that is in such a good location they don't have to do a particularly good job to still draw a big crowd. The Wi-Fi hardly worked, the rest rooms were not given the attention needed to keep them clean and bug free. Trash cans were overflowing. We had a site where the utilities were simply in the wrong place for any kind of RV making it impossible to hook up the CATV. I'd stay away during the busy times like the July 4th weekend we were there.

I wish I could give this place a better review but it suffers from two problems. First, it really isn't that suitable for anything much over 32-34 feet, it is very tight. Second, the permanent "residents" in this place are a pretty "rustic" lot, if you get my meaning. The owners obviously have tried to make this place nicer but it is still full of shabby trailers and people who like to conduct domestic brawls at 1AM in the morning, which happened while we were there. Frankly, Sunnyside is a pretty shabby place too, so I'd have to recommend that wine country visitors go a little further down the road to Prosser or Richland.

New owners seem to be keeping the park up very well and maintaining high standards. WiFi though expensive is much improved with new antennas and an obviously better server. This place is close to all shopping and I-20 yet very quiet and beautifully landscaped. Bigger rigs should ask for a space on the north side of the park. Highly recommended!

Really spacious and clean, a snap to get in and out of your very long and level space. Short access road from I-20 very narrow but short, pause on top of the bridge before proceeding to make sure no one is coming as there is no way two rigs could pass each other on the road. Friendly and helpful owner, clean baths, quiet. Very good overnighter or if visiting Abilene for short period.

We used one of the park's new sites in the rear because earlier reviews commented on road noise. It was definitely less in the rear but still fairly noticeable. Having said that, the park was absolutely impeccable with nice trees and very nice laundry and restroom facilities. Management was very friendly and helpful. The site had really good hookups and the cable TV was flawless. The location is perfect for walking or riding bikes to see the historic courthouse, a number of fine Victorian homes, and the beautiful city park. We enjoyed our stay at Boones and would definitely return.

This could hardly be called a resort. It is an older park with some parts kept up pretty well, some not. The roads are pretty deteriorated and watch out for the killer speed bumps. We first were put in a spot where the sewer was located a good 20 feet away and the "patio" was so broken up it was dangerous, so we had to request a move. Second spot was OK. Positives--very long pull throughs, baths and pool well maintained, very convenient to downtown attractions, grounds kept up well, very good access to long bike trail along the river. Office staff was fairly helpful. Bus to downtown picks up across the street from the entry, very convenient if you're not pulling a toad. Negatives--a lot of permanents, expensive WiFi (though we readily found a free site with strong signal strength), some road noise and morning noise as the permanents went to work. We'd stay here again if we wanted to be close to downtown.

Hard to beat this place or this time of year for visiting it. Very friendly office staff, grounds, rest rooms all spotless. Nice sized spaces, good hookups, very good wifi included in price. Some signs of deferred maintenance since the place is threatened with closure due to condo conversion. The hot tub badly needs refurbishing and replastering, the pools are not heated but were really refreshing and great for lap swimming. Gorgeous beach of fine sand was so firm you can ride your (fat tire) bikes on it. Really nice boardwalk to the beach also constructed so you can ride your bikes over the dunes to the beach. Loved our stay here and will keep coming back until the condo pirates get it.

Very clean older campground in charming community with good wifi but truly dismal CATV. Many spaces had trees in the way including ours such that we could not open awning. Spaces long enough but generally too close together typical of older park. Clean and nice individual shower rooms. Make sure you stay long enough here to see the four painted churches. Very friendly and helpful staff.

WIFI and CATV pretty weak but this campground is very nice and very interesting with wonderful owner. Very quiet at night, the cotton gin is fascinating as is the story of the place. Check web site for concerts when you schedule. Absolutely immaculate, spotless everywhere including baths. Very recommended.

Very good overnighter. Excellent hookups, very good CATV, reasonably quiet at night, good strong and reasonably fast WIFI.

As usual, one of the most consistent and best run private RV parks we've ever stayed in. Great big rig sites on the north side, impeccable grounds, good hookups. Only reason they didn't get a "10" is because the WiFi is very pricey and performed poorly for about 3 hours in the morning, beginning at about 9AM. Signal strength was consistently very good, problem appeared to be that it couldn't handle the level of usage, pretty unforgivable for $6 per day. We'll continue to make this our preferred stop in the Metroplex.

This is a good overnighter along a long stretch of U.S. 60 that lacks for decent places to stop. Old KOA, about half occupied by long termers, seemed a friendly bunch as was the owner. Very good cable TV. WiFi charges extra, we did not try. Good hookups but grounds were infested with sticker weeds. Clean, well maintained rest rooms. Fair amount of noise from nearby main line rail road tracks. Easy in and out. We'll stop here again if we get a late start out of Albuquerque.

Sites OK, rough gravel, some nice trees, not a lot of space between rigs but typical of most older RV parks. Some road noise from TX 75. A lot of long-term "campers." This would be a decent park if the advertised facilities were actually available. Pool & spa, nope, "broken" and locked up. Sauna--not on and locked up. Clubhouse very nice but locked up tight after 5PM. Considering the previous review found pretty much the same situation, this park is guilty of false advertising. I was told that it has recently sold. We'll see if the new owners are any better.

National Forest campground at elevation 7800 on NM4. Huge paved sites but no hookups, paved roads, very scenic and beautiful falls a short walk from campground. Best big rig sites stay left after you enter campground. Excellent and attentive camp hosts keep typical Forest Service outhouse bathrooms spotless and odor free. Virtually no litter anywhere we walked Note: very busy on weekends in summer and no reservations. Accepts Golden Age passport, we paid just $5 per nite.

Only reason for not giving it a 10 is the lack of sewer hookups. We camped for a week over Christmas. Not the quietest place because it is very popular with the boating crowd. Staff was very friendly, attentive and very diligent about keeping showers and restrooms, and grounds, clean. Wonderful walk along the lake to the south, fantastic views. Nice large sites, not totally level but within tolerances for most. Warning--we're told it gets hard to get in there after about the first week in January, call first before you go! We had no problem with a December 23rd arrival. We loved it and plan on going back. Rate quoted is a winter special where you get 7 days camping for the price of 5 at $21 per day.

Plusses are very clean, facilities in very good condition. Minuses are very few and poor quality spaces for motorhomes over 30 feet, very limited number of electric only hookups (less than 10). Biggest problem is camping area is bisected by road to Santa Fe Ski Valley and traffic noise very intrusive. Best for pop ups, truck campers and very small trailers or fifth wheels. Best camping sites by far in the more primitive side of the park east of roadway. A couple sites there that can handle a 30 foot MH but no reservations.

We stay at Treetops every year when visiting nearby relatives. It is always spotless, the grounds are meticulously maintained, the staff are universally helpful and nice. Even though it is very close to dense retail commercial development, it feels quiet and rural. Larger rigs work best in the pull thrus on the north section of the park. Can't say enough good about this park, we consider it the best commercial RV park we've ever stayed in and we have been RVing for 10 years now.

Basically a dusty parking lot next to a VERY busy road. Was so noisy we had to run AC unit all night to drown it out. Helpful owner but very expensive for what you get IMO.
