Although this park gets very high marks from Good Sam, I'm not sure they are quite that high. The cleanliness of the central bathrooms is sketchy; although, the shower had good water pressure and was clean. The first site I was in (#3) was very narrow and sloped off steeply at the back. I was barely able to get my 32' rig to fit without excessive leveling assistance. Then I had to park my toad on that downward slope. The sites are quite narrow. I had to unhook before pulling in, even though sites are advertised as pull through. The sites in the row behind #3 appear to be fine. They are longer and more level. Ask for 16-20. Those appear to be the big rig sites they assign for FHU. There was another area for FHU up on the hill, but again those sites were very close together and not very long. WiFi was good. Pool was clean. It was nice and quiet until the tent campers came in on the weekend (Fri and Sat), and then the 10pm quiet time was not enforced. Loud noises until 12:30am. So it was a nice, pretty park--just not a 9, IMO.
I echo what previous reviewers have said. This is a great park. Quiet with shade trees. I had site B6, which was a full hookup near the bathhouse. This is a very clean bathhouse, with 4 toilet stalls and 3 shower stalls on the ladies side. And, it was heated for us because of the 55 degree evening! The WiFi is excellent. You need to get password from hosts. There is a large security light near the bathhouse, which didn't bother me. And yes, you can hear the occasional train during the day. Loved this place. I thought of staying 2 days and increased my stay to 4. There's lots to do around here as well. I would stay here again.
I liked this little park. I had a nice shaded gravel pull-through spot that was far enough back in the park to cut down on some of the road noise, yet near enough to the shower/laundry to be very handy. When I had to leave two days earlier than planned, the manager graciously refunded one night's stay, which she didn't have to do. Their store, as has been noted, has a huge selection of wonderful cheeses, sausages, spices, etc., as well as sodas. They do close at 6 PM, though, and provide a map of available spaces for latecomers, which is nice. I paid a Good Sam rate and would certainly return again if in the area.
Areas 2 and 4 are electric (30 amp mostly – two 50 amp sites in Site 4) with mostly paved sites, even a good number of pull-throughs, and the rest gravel. Sites are well spaced, shady, some really tucked back into the woods. I stayed there 9 days and in both Area 2 (#59) and Area 4 (#83). Area 2 is next to the Wi-Fi and showers, and consequently the signal was excellent. Site 4 is 400+ yards away and Wi-Fi was nonexistent, although I think they are going to add a booster. I saw several deer and it is very quiet in the evening. There’s a good map on the web site, which shows the popularity of the individual sites, which is kind of cool. Since there is no water or sewer, I can’t give it a 10, but agree the two dump sites are very clean and accessible. I would definitely stay here again, if in the area. Convenient to Kansas City.
I echo what earlier reviewers have said. Convenient, no frills, level gravel sites rather close together in the front section of the park. Some road noise, but it wasn't too bothersome after dark. Good for an overnight stay and close to Lambert’s, which we visited. WiFi seemed a bit cranky at times, but pretty good. Restrooms, laundry all OK. I’m sure I got a Good Sam or senior discount. Host was nice and helpful. It’s not fancy, but certainly functional for full hookup. Cable wasn't working while we were there, otherwise I would rate higher.
All sites are back-in but well spaced so it was an easy fit. 50 amp service, no water or sewer hookup, as is typical of most state parks. We got the out of state senior rate. My site (10) was near restrooms, which are very clean. (Exception, and this was just funny. First thing in the morning, both bathrooms were strewn with all the torn up paper that had been in the garbage container. I suspect raccoons because they could easily open the screen doors.) The restrooms are elevated to accommodate flood situations so there are two sets of stairs, but there is also a wheelchair ramp. So there were critters about, and lots of birds. We had a gorgeous view of the river as it glided by. We sat out there for an hour or two with drinks as the sun went down. We also went over to their historic courthouse and got a small tour of the very interesting museum. Jacksonport was a Civil War surrender site. I think this is an undiscovered gem and would not hesitate to return. The paddle wheel boat sank a few years ago and they are trying to raise money to restore it. I would give this a 10 if it had WiFI and sewer hookups.
Rate reflects 30 amp service. It is also $8.50 to use the Missouri State Park reservation system. If you walk-in, you don’t have to pay reservation fee, but around Memorial Day weekend, that was not an option for me. I left a message with the reservation system, looking for Fri-Mon on a Memorial Day weekend and was VERY pleasantly surprised to get a call back the day before. I got site #2, which was the first one on the left, and despite being at the entry point, it was relatively quiet because there was no one on my right side and I had a huge grassy space there. There was no water hookup, but a convenient spigot right across the road. They sell 10 lb bags of ice for $2 and firewood for $4 at the check-in, which is centrally located with the restrooms and showers. Dump station is easy access behind restrooms, with a potable water spigot there too. As someone has said before, concrete pads are level, WiFi was excellent (you have to “Agree” to abide by rules when you logon—no biggy). I caution and reiterate an earlier review—be VERY careful upon making the turn into the campground. There is a rain culvert, which dips and creates a very significant bump to both RV and vehicle. Go as slowly as possible. Big hill down and up to campsite, but no strain. Roads are very wide. Your GPS or Google could tell you to go down Olive Road after exiting I64/40/61. Do NOT go this way with your rig. There is a very curvy, narrow, steep road that leads up to 109, but it is only suitable for cars. I would have given it a 10 if it had water and sewer hookups.
Best restrooms and shower facility I have ever been in. Plentiful laundry facilities at reasonable rates. WiFi strong. Sites long, wide, and well separated. Not much shade. Not much to do in Carthage. We stayed here two days and took a day trip to Jefferson, TX, which is one of the cutest towns I've ever seen. Rate reflects Good Sam. I would stay here again for one night if I was passing thru.
Rate reflects $175/week price. I stayed here 20 days. Proximity to Galveston is excellent and weather is more like the beach. Long, wide concrete pads. WiFi (when it worked) was good if you were located near the clubhouse and pool, which I was. This park is associated with a RV sales site and repair facility. The receptionist was always friendly and helpful. Although showers were "clean", I think they'd look a lot better with tile floors rather than the concrete floors, which appeared kind of slimy. There appear to be many regulars in the back part of the park and Lots of trucks that leave really early in the morning. Of course, the park was pretty empty during the day then. The pool is beautiful. I have relatives near here and it is the best RV park near Texas City/La Marque (IMO). It is safe and easily accessible. Near I-45 with Walmart up the road about 2 miles. I would return here again.
As was noted earlier it's all gravel with no shade and minimal landscaping. I had a pull through with toad. There was room next to coach to park vehicle. Utilities located in a nice, modern pedestal. I used both laundry and shower--very clean. WiFi (when working) was strong. Park is located right across highway from beautiful white sand beaches and I drove up to Biloxi and over to Bay St.Louis (really cute little town). The managers who checked us in were very friendly and helpful. Park was clean, quiet, and well located, but it would be nice to have some trees. Watch out for wind near the beach--could rip your awning off. I would stay here again. Rate reflects Good Sam discount.
I only stayed one night and made a reservation for it for a Saturday night and the campground was full. This was just a convenient stop off I-10 on my way to Texas. Manager very pleasant. Pull thru site was even and wide. Plentiful and extremely clean restrooms and showers. Easy to refuel with gas station nearby. I would stay here again.
The hosts of this park were so nice and people were very friendly. It looked as if there were several full timers, but everything was very clean and it was an easy in and easy out. I stayed two days. WiFi wasn't working the first day, but the second day it was and was lightning fast. They offered to return the $1 they charge per day for internet, but I declined. There were only two restrooms in the whole site, but they were neat and clean. My site was gravel and I had no problem with that. Some of the other sites are concrete. It's away from the interstate, so no noise there. Nice place to watch the stars in the evening. I got a few bucks discount for Good Sam. I would definitely stay here again if passing through the area.
This little park rescued me in a last minute effort to find a park. I had a nice pull thru site, and all the staff were very helpful with issues I had (both my equipment) at the site. There had been a lot of rain recently and the sites were a bit muddy but manageable. There was internet, but I think I needed to be closer to the office to use it. 4 washers and 4 dryers with sink and folding table. It was very quiet since it was a mile off I-10. The store had lots of things I needed, like detergent and an o-ring (which they gave to me free of charge). Good Sam discount. I would stay here again for an overnight but probably not extended stay.
This was such an unpleasant experience. I had made a reservation-Passport America and spoke to a really nice lady, who even helped me find the place when I got lost. I should mention that this was the first leg of my first really long trip after retirement. When I arrived, there was another coach in front of the office, so I decided to pull around and look for other parking so I wouldn’t block ingress. So I drove to a site (the place was nearly empty), and a red faced, blond haired man came tearing over there and in no uncertain terms told me I was trespassing, and shouted to “Get out!” over my attempts to explain. When I finally was able to explain, said I had a reservation, he said, “I guess that’ll teach you to come on my park again, and get out before I call the cops.” I was more puzzled than angry, although I didn’t have anywhere to go by then. Luckily a nice man at a nearby gas station gave me a hint to another place. Both he and the lady I checked in with next told me that the guy was crazy. I say stay here at your own risk.
