New in 2013. 16 concrete road & sites with concrete parking for second car, remaining 4 sites are dirt/gravel. 20th St ABSOLUTELY SHOULD NOT BE USED for RV in/out as it is VERY tight with low trees. Enter/exit via gravel drive from 22nd St ...and 22nd is by far the best way to get there from 22nd anyway. The park is oriented toward long term, but owner let us stay for 4 nights when he learned we were there for a funeral. We got the only vacant site, and it was being held for someone not due to arrive until after we would be gone.

Rate reflects 15% Escapees discount. Nice concrete pads. Free wifi works. Good utilities. Not a fancy place, but a good decent park. We were here one night, and will stay again.

Above rate ($27.50) reflects 15% discount on nightly rate for Escapees RV Club members. Ten or so pull-through sites immediately behind office are very nice concrete w/nice grass. There is not much other grass in the park. Nice meeting facilities. Free WIFI worked very well, as did the water & electric. We did not connect to sewer as we were there only for two nights. We would stay again.

Above rate reflects rally rate for small group. Nice small meeting room and picnic facilities. Careful site selection is necessary as most sites are severely nose-low. Utilities are good but are at extreme rear of sites. Great for trailers, poor for motor homes. Sites appear to be gravel, but require jack pads for motor homes to prevent sinking into the ground. Verizon signal was poor and no voice service, but data service worked in limited ways. The park's free WiFi signal was strong, but worked poorly when at all. Best part of the park was the herd of deer and small flock of guinea hens that roam the park with little fear of humans.

The pull-throughs here are end to end, but there is room beside the front rig for the rear rig to pull around IF the neighbor's car is not blocking. Utilities in excellent condition, free Wi-Fi worked great. Good access and exit. Saw no bathhouse, but we use our own anyway. Owner/host is off-site but phone numbers are on each electric box and he responded quickly to our call. We would stay here again.

Above rate reflects rally rate for 5 nights. 31 back-ins, 19 pull-throughs, 6 cabins, nice and well-manicured gravel sites, enclosed pavilion for groups, free Wi-Fi did not work for us (connected initially, then it said connection cancelled due to slow speed), our Verizon 4g hotspot worked great, we were directly East of the horses with winds out of the West and we never had any unwelcome smells. We would stay here again.

Rate is weekly rate of $125. Best site we have had here is approx 70 ft long, relatively level pull through. Friendly folks. New bathhouse/laundry building. However, our 50a power sagged badly (as low as 102a) at times (don't run coffeemaker & toaster at same time). Sewer connection is at the far front of site and connection to provided 4" pvc sewer pipe is not possible w/normal equipment PLUS it ran uphill, very low water pressure at times, free WIFI virtually unusable.

Good Sam rate $25.50/night. Just off I-20, exit 77. Looks like relatively new park sculpted out of rolling, wooded terrain. Sites fairly level. Many have tables. Decent gravel roads and sites. Pond in campground with resident ducks. Info says "WiFi hotspot" but we saw no evidence; it may be in office area near entrance. Large cleared area on top of hill near office may be for future campsites? That would be great for overnighters. We would stay here again.

Rate above is at monthly w/senior or military discount. Very peaceful location w/good, level asphalt sites (back-in only) and roads. Good city water with slightly low pressure. Very good electric. Heavy leaf fall: a leaf blower is very handy here for clearing your site and also for clearing the slide tops before departing. (Very congenial camp host keeps vacant pads cleared, but we prefer more than just the pad cleared). Satellite TV is possible with careful site selection and/or a mobile dish. Good over-the-air TV reception. Good Verizon 4g signal. Central bathhouse is nothing fancy, but is clean and nicely heated. Squirrels and deer are seen almost daily. Tables, grills, and fire rings at sites. We will stay again.

Above rate was during rally. WI-FI does not work in most of RV area, does work well in the building. There are 20-some 30 amp water sites, the rest are 50 amp full-hookup. Sites are designed to be double back-to-back when totally full. Inner circle sites are "shared" utilities. Outer circle site utilities have electric on one side shared, and water/sewer on other side shared ...one or the other is on the wrong side!! Otherwise, utilities are good, slabs are nice. All sites are technically back-in over a shallow curb.

Rate reflects Good Sam discount on weekly rate. Heavy tree cover makes satellite TV difficult/impossible but they do have good free CATV with 52+ channel. Advertised free WIFI was not accessible from our site in the second row from the office. There are many quite permanent residents here with lots of "stuff" under and around the RVs, and one even has a very permanent looking wood fence!! Dogs must be leashed and picked up after but the friendly campground dog Snoopy runs free and does his business where he pleases. If you can deal with the rough edges, this is a fairly pleasant place to stay.

We were here with a rally, first in the "overnight" 30amp area and then on the main grounds. Many sites in the overnight area are quite unlevel. WI-FI worked well there. Sites on the main rally grounds are more likely to be near level. The WI-FI here would connect but NEVER had internet connectivity where we were in the back area. Many of the sewer connections are 6+ inches above the ground and almost unusable for most motorhomes ...creativity is required!! Electric and water were good, and Verizon cell hot spot worked very well.

Nice, long concrete pull-throughs in upper area. But some rigs could tail-drag on entry on many of these sites as evidence by pavement being very scarred. Free Wi-Fi worked well, nicely maintained, quiet location, we would stay again.

Rate is PA rate plus tax. Sites are long and fairly level. Nice grass between gravel sites, but the automatic sprinklers in the middle of the night watered our coach and car about as much as they did the grass. Pleasant place to spend the night, but you will hear occasional I-90 and train noises. Good utilities. Wifi worked. We have stayed here before and would stay again.

Rate reflects weekly rate for only six nights. We have Passport America but that is good for only two nights, cash only. Nice gravel park, level sites, good utilities, free CATV, free Wi-Fi works most of the time, Verizon hot spot worked great, many long-term residents but not an issue other than one neighbor yelling profanities at other residents of his rig almost daily. Nice paved cycling trail right outside Ft Caspar entrance. We would stay again, but either for only two nights or a month to cut the nightly cost to something reasonable.

Rate cited is Passport America rate. I wonder if this is a different park than the previous rater?? Utilities are toward rear of site, but far enough in to get the toad off the street. Good utilities, free CATV, free Wi-Fi works well, Verizon mobile hot spot worked fine with 3G rather than 4G service. Pull-through sites are gravel and very slightly low to the rear. Relatively new owner (1 year), very friendly and helpful, and laying new sod and making other improvements during our stay. We walked two blocks "downtown" for lunch at the "world famous" Waterhole Saloon, the only other business in town other than the Post Office. We enjoyed two nights here, and would return.

Rate is Passport America rate. Easy access from I-70 on good gravel streets. Good utilities. Denver local TV channels available via free "cable" hookup from owner's antenna. Interesting setup covering 1/2 city block surrounding owner's home, but it is well arranged and works quite well! The free Wi-Fi did not work well with my tablet. I didn't try with the laptop as we were there only one night. Verizon mobile data worked fine. Owner and staff were very friendly and helpful. Very quiet and peaceful. Nothing fancy, but covers the bases well and provides a sample of small town living, like I grew up in. We definitely will stay again when in the area.

Rate is nightly w/Good Sam discount. We have stayed here many times before. This time we were in the pull-through sites near the office. This is the best area for satellite access, and the worst for Wi-Fi access. In spite of being close to the office, as we have experienced in the past, the Wi-Fi signal in this part of the park was too week to be usable. Verizon mobile data worked fine. Sites are level, gravel, with very little grass - very close side to side. We could not turn into our assigned site from the proposed direction (too tight for a big rig unless you have a very tight wheel cut) but were able to circle through vacant sites and easy get in.

Unmanned self-checking is easy. Easy access for big rigs, long pull-throughs and wide gravel streets. There were perhaps five other rigs in the park during our holiday weekend stay. Good utilities. Sites very close to level, grass between sites. Very pleasant and quiet place to stay. I disagree with the previous comment that local businesses are not Amish owned/operated. A few may not be, but most are. The furniture store next to the RV park has very nice, well-built, and reasonably priced old style furniture. No playground for children, but plenty of grass to play on. We would absolutely stay here again.

Above rate reflects full hookup, 50a site with 10% "Senior Citizen" discount. Some trees could bear trimming on roads and sites, but are still passable with big rigs. Our pull-through site is NOT pull-through except for very small rigs due to a medium sized bushy tree too close to the pavement on the exit turn. We backed out and hooked up the toad on the road behind us. Always a peaceful stay here, and the strictly enforced stay length limits are what keeps it available for travelers.

The nicest RV park we have seen in East Texas!! Excellent utilities, good free WiFi - higher level service available for fee, superb bathrooms/shower rooms, great rally facilities, gated security, nice grass, concrete roads and 2-track sites, 2 cookout areas, tables at some sites, nice dog runs, concrete walkway to lake & to celebration center, campground employee met us at site with 2x10 boards to put across the concrete tracks for our leveling jacks.

Rate is rally rate. It has good access and good utilities. The free Wi-Fi was worthless regardless of where we went to connect. The sites in our part of the park were not long enough to leave towed connected. Had to disconnect and park between rigs. Sites are gravel and decent, but not at all what I expect from a "resort".

Rate reflects "long term" monthly rate. This is a very pleasant location with good tree cover. With some care in site selection, roof top satellite TV is possible. Electric connections are in good repair, and voltage is stable. Bathhouse/showers are OK: best thing there is the heat! Water is OK, but rust colored. No sewer at sites, but good dump station. Long-term sites are available with agreed on background check. Gate is locked 10pm-6am. We would return, but will have TWO sediment water filters next time.

Rate is with Good Sam 10% off discount. The free Wi-Fi works. The asphalt sites are not level but most are workable for large motorhomes. We will try to avoid the last row if we stay here again as it looks the most unlevel. Sites are very tight. Our site was nose-low with the front wheels several inches off the ground. The utilities work well, but are in poor physical condition.

Stayed here for a rally. Sites not particularly level (our front wheels were off the ground, neighbor had to use blocks under rear wheels). Wi-Fi worked fairly well most of the time though we were on the extreme edge of the facility. Utilities were great except that sewer connections were ridicuously high off the ground.

Nice level gravel pull-throughs though little space between, some shaded, excellent water & electric, free Wi-Fi works great, easy access, very helpful staff, very peaceful location on old US 66 near downtown; Del's Restaurant 1/2 block away was very good.

Above rate reflects small group rate ...we had a rally w/7 rigs present. The small rally building was a great facility & management was very easy to work with is setting up the rally. Streets are spacious, sites are easy to get into, good slabs and utilities. Everything was in good repair and management was very visible and responsive during business hours. We had an AC problem in the building and were unable to find anyone to help after hours, but the next morning they were extremely responsive in getting things working. We definitely would return here!

Above rate reflects one month at monthly rate of $410, and 2 weeks at weekly rate of $130. We have stayed here many times. Clean, neat, level gravel sites. Wi-Fi is poor/rarely works for long, very picky about car parking and direction of travel on the very wide streets. Getting more picky about pets, I would to walk my dog through the park while I get some exercise: not allowed. Our Surge Guard trips power occasionally due to transient over/under voltage most likely due to a bad common on their electrical system but they blame the power company. Good place to stay If you use a GOOD SURGE GUARD and a GOOD WATER PRESSURE REGULATOR.

Excellent free Wi-Fi ...both in speed and reliability. Nothing else to brag about. Good utilities although hookups are at rear of site so can complicate effectively using the pull-through with a toad behind a MH unless you have sewer extensions. Caliche/gravel streets & pads w/nice grass between. Nothing fancy ...nothing major to complain about. We would return if we need to visit in the area.

Above rate reflects weekly rate. Very nice, peaceful park. No pull throughs, but the streets and most sites are quite spacious with grass, tables, and grills. Sites are nicely graveled and very close to level. We tend to avoid places with "resort" in their name, but this appeared to be a resort in name only as it was not over-priced as many are. The free Wi-Fi was worthless to us as in spite of being only 3 sites from the office, we were able to connect to a weak, slow, and unreliable signal only once or twice during the week. Our Verizon broadband worked well. We would gladly return here.

Nightly rate reflects our rally rate plus a few nights. Electric is only 30a but it worked quite well for running dual ac on our Winnebago. The campground can get muddy in rainy weather, but otherwise is quite decent. A paved bicycle/walking trail runs from the Expo Center around the airport ...well used and quite handy. Access can be confusing, but once you know the route it is easily accessible from the highway and a great place to spend some peaceful nights!

Above rate reflects monthly rate plus metered electric. This is a resort in name and price only, but there is pretty much nothing else to choose from. Sites in the RV section are quite close together, and in most of the park are NOT angled to allow easy access. Watching people try to get out on many mornings while walking the dogs was "entertaining" to say the least. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Utilities were good. We probably won't stay again due to the expense.

Above rate reflects weekly rate of $125. New owners 18 monthes ago have been busy converting an old trailer park into a combined mobile home/RV park. I have no idea how many sites they have. We were in #150. RV sites are spacious with gravel pads, concrete patios, picnic table, and new utilities. Water pressure is a little low but workable. Free Wi-Fi inside the club house only. The pool had been open only 3 months when we were here. This is the nicest of the 3 local RV parks we have stayed in: easy access, spacious sites, and quite peaceful. We would definitely stay here again!

Rate quoted reflects weekly rate, sites are mostly level though entire campground is sloped to one side. Some sites have grass, all have a picnic table, free Wi-Fi was slow when it worked. I was close to the antenna at the laundry room but found it somewhat unreliable. Verizon data signal and coverage was good. Heavy tree cover blocked our roof-top satellite dish but we made do with the free CATV for the six nights we stayed. We would return, but insist on a site where we can use our satellite dish.

Above rate reflects monthly rate. Sites are marginal. They are plenty long, but barely wide enough to work, and definitely NOT "nice and level" as previously described. Two or three near the front may be level enough, but all the rest are considerably nose-low, providing problems in leveling even a short Class C, much less a long Class A. All sites would work ok for trailers. With a 40' diesel motorhome, we had to pull much further forward than desirable for utility connections and still had to use a LOT of lumber under front jacks and tires to get level, which then required a wood pallet and concrete blocks to make the elevated entry step height workable. The park manager did help by bringing six concrete patio blocks to the site for our use. A small class C, two spaces over from us had around 8" of wood under the front wheels. The free WiFi was weak and was usable perhaps 50% of the time. It was a dusty month for us with lots of blowing dirt almost daily from the livestock auction/Exposition Center dirt drives and parking lots to the south. We will look for other options on our next visit to the area.

Rate reflects monthly rate. Sites are wide and long. Utilities are good, but water pressure is VERY high and electric sometimes surges with high voltage. You REALLY NEED a good water pressure regulator and surge guard with over/under voltage protection here. The free WiFi is virtually useless: good signal but no internet connection most of the time. Verizon mobile broadband signal is very good. Even with a high percentage of apparently permanent residents, the management has done much toward creating a great RV park: taking care of the problems in many other poorly designed parks. Both sites and streets are very wide, long and level, though the crushed gravel does tend to track inside the RV. Patios are located for trailers, and are too far to the rear of the site for front-entry motorhomes. The only real issue here is that the management/site host has serious control issues about the confusing traffic pattern. Only two of the very wide streets are two way (depending on what site you are in), while all others are one way only, requiring you to drive two or three times as far as necessary to get to/from your site. If you approach your site from the wrong direction EVEN IF YOU DID NOT VIOLATE ANY ONE WAY STREETS, you will get a note on your windshield telling you to: "Please enter your site the right way." If you dare to park in FRONT of your RV rather BEHIND it, you will get a note on your windshield telling you to: "Please enter your site the right way," and most of the time with a highlighted reminder that: "The speed limit is 5mph." Management blood pressure, and that of their guests, would be considerably lower if they would get over some of their traffic pattern control issues.

$21 rate is 1/2 price Passport American rate. That's very high for what they provide: gravel/dusty/dirt park, sites a little low in the rear but ok for motorhomes, small concrete patio on each site.

Above rate includes "FMCA/Senior" discount. We requested upper area in order to be able to receive satellite TV, comments above about no dumpster in upper area are accurate, but I did see others leave trash bag on the picnic table and management picked it up. Free WI-FI via Tengo worked a few hours the first night we were there but then disconnected and we never picked up the signal again in our four-night stay. Verizon broadband signal was good, but only 1x so somewhat slow. On exit we found the turn-around too narrow and had to disconnect toad to get turned around, partially due to narrow turn and partially due to vehicles parked where we could have swung wide on entry to the turn in a likely feeble effort to make it. Handy to I-81 and just a few miles North of a new Wal-Mart Supercenter. We might stay again for a few nights.

We were here with a group, but they do take individual RVers also. There are limited full-hookup sites, but there is a dump station. Typical fairground amenities w/grass sites, etc. Excellent voltage on 30 amp outlets. VERY HIGH water pressure (110psi on my gauge) and many of our folks experience water hose blow-outs. They do have bath houses but not close to the area where they would normally park over-nighters. Easy access and small town environment. We would return if in the area.

My rating would be a point or two higher if our group had been clearly told what to expect when we made our reservations. We were told there are 50a sites with full hookups. There are, but VERY few w/sewer and even fewer w/50a. "Sewer service" (ie. honey wagon provided as needed) is OK, but it is NOT the same as having a sewer connection. Most sites cannot receive satellite TV due to heavy tree cover, local OTA TV is extremely limited and the campground is wired for CATV but CATV is not available. Water pressure was extremely low. We have a 40' motorhome and were parked on an unlevel tent site requiring significant blocking up on one corner. Our 30a electrical outlet had barely usable voltage around 108-109v most of the time, low enough to cause possible damage to electronics, AC, etc. I understand the campground is under new ownership and the couple on site was very friendly and helpful face to face. But this campground was far below what we were led to expect would be available to us. In addition to the problems with RV sites, we had to hold our meetings off-site in Centre Hall because the available "meeting space" was a small open air pavilion, not at all usable for other than small social activities. All said and done, we paid a premium price for marginal facilities. I doubt any of our group will be back.

Above rate reflects weekly discount. Located right on the shore of Lake Erie, private beach approximately 30 ft down wooden stairs. The many permanent sites are kept very neat, transient sites are grass with no apparent attempt to make level, our front wheels were several inches off the ground to get level. Trees blocked our satellite dish, fair ddigitalTV reception of approximately 12 channels. Had good Verizon signal, very good free and fast WiFi w/strong signal. Very quiet during the week, but the campground fills up on weekends. Best part of the whole place is the very helpful campground manager. We might return if in the area.

Excellent utilities, aproximately 80, 50amp full hook up, back-in sites around the sides of two level asphalt lots, another 60 or so on 2 asphalt lots with significant slope side to one side. The remainder 30amp, water and electric only sites are on grass varying from level to severe slope. Has multiple bath houses, ice for sale, is well-lighted with roving security. Entry gate 11 or 12 off Sangamon Ave. We checked in on Monday when the office was closed, called the number posted and security officer arrived quickly. We never got WiFi but our Verizon broadband work very well.

With Passport America, we paid $10 per night for our five night stay. Sites are gravel, and pull-throughs are at 90 degree angle to roads. Interior roads are narrow so sites are not easy for big rigs to get out of without running over grass on the sides. Free WI-FI was good, we but did have daily outages for short periods. There are only 5 full hookup sites, and limited 50amp sites. We had a 30amp full hookup site and experienced sagging voltage, several times down to marginal ranges around 104v. Our 30-50 adapter was in very good condition when we arrived, but was severely damaged by heat by the time we left 5 days later. 18 hole miniature golf on premises for one-time cost of $3 for park residents. Staff was very friendly and helpful. We would consider staying again if in the area for several days.

Above rate reflects the group rate for the aproximately 20 rigs we were with. Has nice club rooms for meetings; the free WiFi had good speed but was very unreliable; the pull-through sites are somewhat narrow; some of the utilities are to the rear of sites, so motorhomes will likely need a sewer hose extension. We would gladly return again.

Rate above reflects weekly rate: a bit costly for what they provide. Dirt/gravel/mud sites, marginal water pressure, sagging voltage on 50amp outlet sometimes as low as 109v. Heavy tree cover was nice for shade but totally blocks satellite use. Was redeemed somewhat by the 60-some channels on free CATV. Shared utilities between sites, narrow sites. We stayed here due to convenience while visiting family nearby: will likely look at other options next time.

Very nice state park, has a 14-day limit. Has new playgrounds built around the park in the past year, we have stayed here before for a week at at time and will again. There is a nice swimming pool a mile or so from Whitetail campground (this is where the 10 full hookup sites are). Our only complaint this time was the loud music (pounding drum and thumping bass guitar) from the nearby "group area" every day from 8-8:30am and again in late evening: normally during posted quiet hours of 9pm-9am.

Weekly rate $130. Free WiFi worked very well, faster WiFi available for modest fee. Heavy tree cover blocked rooftop satellite dish but with 70+ channels of free CATV, we didn't miss our satellite channels much. We were here in Cottonwood shedding season, requiring frequent cleaning of the AC condenser intake. This was our third stay here: we would stay again, but might checkout another nearby park next time for better satellite access.

Rate reflects weekly rate for 50 amp full-hookup "big rig" site. We called ahead and made a reservation via telephone several days before our arrival. Some slabs are cracked, some patched with asphalt. Utilities were a bit far from normal location, required a sewer extension. Good power and water. Though we were told the site was good for satellite reception it we did find interference when the wind blew the tree branches around. We tried the free 4 hour coupon for the pay Tengonet WI-FI and found it unusable due to weak and intermittent signal ...typical for Tengonet in our experience. The pool was open and in very good condition. We will stay here again when we are in the area.

Rate reflects $300 monthly rate. Some sites are pretty tight. Many sites have 50amp receptacles that actually are a 14-30R with L shaped neutral that have been "forced" so that a 14-50 plug will fit. They test as a normal 14-50R with a meter, and they have a double-pole 50a breaker on them. Many long-term residents. Rules pretty much not enforced ...stuff stored around/under trailers and pets not picked up after. Grass mowers threw grass debris all over sides of our motorhome, weed eaters shredded sewer hose ...manager promised payment for the hose but we never got it. Septic system aerator sprinkler created stinky swamp around dumpster, with "aroma" sometimes going throughout the park. VERY close train track with slow freights 24hrs. Free WI-FI worthless unless you are parked right next to the office. Unfortunately, there is not much to choose from in the area...

Rate paid reflects monthly rate of $350. Used to have 20 sites, but they have destroyed utility hookups to 4 pull through sites and have mobile homes parked/stored there. There are shared utilities on 6 paved pull-through sites; others are grass back-ins, mostly occupied by long-term folks. There is excellent free W-FI, free CATV, 1 common use covered grill & table, playground, laundry, showers. Utility hookups are surrounded by pipe barrier that complicates sewer connection. Decent park but suffering from some neglect (handles broken off water hydrants, etc.) We would return again.

Above rate reflects weekly rate, basically the same as Passport America daily rate. The only real complaint we would have here are the gravel/mud streets due to heavy rain two days during our week-long stay. It's not quite what we expected from the web site, but tolerable. The free Wi-Fi was very fast and fairly reliable with only rare and brief drop-outs during periods of heavy use. Sites include landscaping between, and each site we saw has a least a small grass area. Management is very management and helpful. There are only a few bathrooms and showers, but they are very well maintained. Park is gated. Very nice free shuttle 3 times daily to and from the French Quarter. When we return to New Orleans, there is no doubt that this is where we will stay.

Rate reflects FMCA member discount ...we felt it was unreasonably high for what they provide ...no "resort" by any means. We have stayed here before (don't believe they called themselves a resort then), but this time they put us in "a big rig site" in the row closest to the road, charging a premium price for that "privilege" when all we wanted/needed was electric hookup for the night. But after paying for the premium site where we could leave our towed connected, we had to disconnect the car to get out of the park the next morning when we found the turn at the end of row one is too sharp for a 40' MH w/towed!!! Easy utility hookups with free cable & Wi-Fi, but we were unable to connect to the Wi-Fi inspire of following their instructions multiple times, even down to turning off the pop-up blocker. We might stay here again if desperate, but would refuse any site in the row next to the road.

Even with that, we had a pleasant stay and would return again.

We were in one of 6 new back-in sites on a deep bed of loose crushed concrete that desperately needs to be smoothed out to remove tire ruts, etc. The sewer connection was uphill from the pad causing problems dumping for lower diesel coaches. Super Wal-Mart is approximately 1.5 miles away, and handy to downtown. There are a considerable number of permanent residents. (What else to expect when you see the bank of mailboxes clearly numbered for each of the 54 sites!!!) No apparent rules or pride in appearance. The fifth wheel next to us had the ground around it totally covered with bicycles, a dirt bike, grills, ATV tires, ice chests, a kiddie wading pool crammed under the rear, and an assortment of unrecognizable debris scattered about. But we saw no children in the two days we were here. This is a no-frills, pretty peaceful location. Any of the pull-through sites would be better than the newer back-ins.

$11 is Passport America rate. $1 additional if you want to use ac or electric heat. Electric connections are shared between sites, 30amp only, and in poor condition with badly burned sockets. Some outlets do not provide reliable power. The first I tried/tested had only 85 volts available. This would cause terminal damage to RV electronics! Do NOT go here without over/under voltage protection. There are no restrooms and no showers. It's a self check-in procedure with no campground map around. This place is OK for an overnight, but not much more.

Above rate is for water & electric site. Full hookups were taken up by "permanent workers" in the area. No cable TV at our site, and no over the air television. Our Verizon cellular internet worked well. Sites are gravel with nice grass around them. 50amp electric power was poor as voltage sagged badly under minimal load. Telephone information/reservations is available ONLY Tuesdays from 10am to 2pm. Site assignment is via self-check in with camp host normally available for assistance if needed. Good location for visiting Stonehenge, Maryhill Museum, and Maryhill Winery. Due to the low voltage problem, we would look at other locations if we visit the area again.

Our second stay here: a 25% price increase since last year!! This makes the weekly cost almost as much as we pay for a month in many locations. Nice grass. The roads and pads are in nice condition, but many pads are unlevel to the point of being dangerous as far as leveling a motorhome is concerned: on one end or the other, tires will be off the ground. Wi-Fi now works in part of the park, but was unreliable. Free CATV but the connector on our post was bad: I replaced it one of mine and it worked fine. We'll probably look for other options if we return to the area. Another 25% price increase will make the cost totally unreasonable.

Rate reflects weekly rate for 2 weeks. Very few real pull-through sites, most are end to end requiring you to unhook your toad, some are clear for sat TV but most are not, we had to forgo our Dish satellite but managed to exist on the free 50 channel CATV, very reliable power. WI-FI was fast but very unreliable in our site immediately behind the office -- we had to use our Verizon broadband connection for internet. Highway noise was not noticeable to us. Management very helpful in getting parked and in providing local info. Enjoyed close access to paved bicycle trail. This was our second visit to this park.

Rate is nightly cost at monthly rate of $400, and the fact that we had to leave a week early. This is a decent location with easy access to Yellowstone National Park. WIFI was available for additional charge, my Verizon broadband via cellphone had very good signal. Mail forwarded to the park is cheerfully delivered to your door! Most sites have sewer at rear of site requiring multiple sewer hose extensions to leave toad attached to Motorhome. Sties are gravel & grass. We had a pleasant stay, though the location was a bit remote for our taste (no normal sized supermarkets, WalMart, and etc. are in reasonable distance).

Located at 330 Old US 24, I-70 exit 438, turn right, right again, and go ΒΌ mi East. We stayed one week at the $100/week rate. This "RV park" is basically a triangle-shaped gravel parking lot with very wide back-in sites approximately 40' maximum length. Our 50 amp connection had marginal voltage. No restrooms are other facilities. $15/night; $100/wk, $350/mo. As this is the only RV park in town, we probably would bypass Burlington next time.

After we found the entire row had the same problem, they sent us to a different area (later told us they found a blown fuse and had sent a guy to find a new one).

We felt the park was quite costly for what we got, we will look for other options next time.

Rate above is at weekly rate of $85 for Escapees members. Nice concrete patio w/table and permanent cover on most sites. Pull-through sites can be tight due to their having created sites between the original sites sharing electric pedestals, so if the park is filled every other pull-through would not have a patio or cover. The patio covers can be problematic if you have a passenger side slide in front of the rear wheels. Also, some motorhomes (gas in particular), might have problem opening the entry door against the patio cover. In those cases, they will likely put you in one of the sites w/o a cover. One row of sites is pull in/back out. They use those sites for trailers as well as for motorhomes. Excellent water pressure & reliable power. Great Verizon signal on Extended Network.

No weekly/monthly rates. Sewer connection on some sites 20 ft+ to rear of other utilities; most pull-through sites are low in rear (may require blocks under rear to level and/or keep wheels in contact w/ground), very little room between rigs, no wifi, no catv, trains passing apx every hour 24 hrs a day. There was a loud band one Saturday night until between 10 & 11pm in the park building next door -- that added to the carnival in the parking lot right across the street made for plenty of noise, price is a bit high for what you get. Adjacent to nice park with paved hike/bike trail. There just isn't much else in the area to choose from...

Rate above is for monthly $240 plus metered electric. We enjoyed our stay. This is probably the best priced park in the area. As others mention, the "streets" are very tight with limited car parking, but we did see active tree trimming while we were there. Website advertises patios but our "patio" looked like a sidewalk apx 15 ft long and 3 ft wide, totally broken up to the point it was more a problem than anything else; utilities good except sewer was slow draining; dumpsters could have been better located rather than having only one location for the entire park; WIFI has several access points but none had a strong signal... in the heart of section A apx 100 yards from a tall antenna, reliability was fair to poor, dropping connectivity several times a day; at best, speed was fair. Better for longer stays than short ...for overnight there are two 30a electric only connections near the office. The expansion mentioned by another reviewer is said to be planned for all double-wide trailers rather than RVs. Contrary to item above about children, we saw and heard nothing to indicate children would not be welcome -- but we didn't see any children in the month we were there either! We would stay again if staying for a week or longer.

Nightly rate above was at monthly rate of $410 followed by 2 weeks of weekly rate of $130. This park is always very well kept. They recently added a large fenced dog "run" and playground equipment, and appear to be preparing to add additional sites. The only drawbacks for us are: 1) the unreliable Wi-Fi (sometimes drops out, sometimes will connect to local network but not internet), especially if you are not in direct line of site to the antenna on the office building; and 2) the fine rocks that get tracked into the RV (sites are crushed gravel/ground asphalt mixture). This is easily the best civilian RV park in the area, so we will stay again when in the area.

Our second visit. This time we were told they do not give any discount for a Natl Parks Golden Access Passport. Two years ago they gave me a 15% discount. Very nice state park with some big pull-through sites. No problem at all getting our 40' coach and toad up the steep climb with many switchbacks. Some sites are not level, but most are workable for large rigs. In spite or rumors of park "improvements" in the works, we saw no evidence of recent or pending work. Price is a bit more than we normally pay for. Option for electric only hookup for weekend stays would be nice. We came here for a group event, and would return again.

There is decent grass between sites, but plenty of sand burrs for the pets to find! We heard more train noise from the rear of the park than airport noise from the front, but not too bad. Site 79 has oddly placed sewer connection behind water and electric, but with a sewer extension we easily reached around the other utilities to connect.

Rate was $20 per night PLUS $10 reservation fee, making nightly cost for 4 nights $22.50 -- a bit high for just water & electric. Also noted that our "50A" hookup actually had 30A breakers, meaning it was actually a 30A 240v rather than 50a 240v as would be normal.

Advertised WI-FI was not available except in "library" building -- I was told it "might be available next month." Though paved or concrete, most sites are unlevel to the extent that most motorhomes lift the wheels on one end or the other off the ground. Sites are narrow but nicely separated with thin evergreen "hedges." Grass is very nice and decently maintained. Bathrooms were in terrible condition at 8am, showers were ok. Overall, we thought this place was very over-priced for a slightly above average RV park. We stayed one week for a wedding in the area. We might stay again if we could find no other options and just had to be in this particular area -- not likely.

The fastest WI-FI we have seen in quite awhile!! Most pull-through sites are very close side to side and are end to end. We stayed two nights and the 5th wheel behind us had to back out to leave after one night. All sites a little low toward one end but OK for leveling. Park overall is a bit tight for larger rigs, but is manageable. Nice place to spend a few days if you can get the right site. We stayed two nights, and probably would stay again.

Were told all 50a sites were taken even though there was one directly across from us that was not occupied. 30a power showed marginal voltage on our line meter but we had no problems as we didn't need to run our ac.

Easy access, gravel roads & sites, p-ts apx 65 ft, most sites are fairly close side to side but not too tight for slides, awnings, etc. Some grass needs cutting. WIFI was great during daytime, rather weak after dark when sites between us and the office antenna were filled. Rates are a bit high for overnight stay when full hookups are not needed, but there aren't many choices in the area and most parks are closed up to 1/2 of the year due to winter weather. The owner, Peter, is an absolutely superb host who is genuinely interested in doing all he can to ensure you have a good visit. We stayed two nights, and would stay again just because of Peter's great hospitality!!

We might stop again for an overnight if we were desperate.

The weekly rate is $90 plus metered electric. We stayed here once before. This time we got a pull-through site, and utilities were well-positioned. We did, however, have some transient ground fault alarms from the 50amp connection on our electric line monitor. We also had a red ant den about three feet from our door, but the owner said "We've tried to kill them but nothing works, but they never really bother anyone." I put some ant poison on the den, and it killed them. Leash & clean up behind your pet rules are not at all enforced. Woodall's says "internet available," but it isn't unless you have dial-up capability on your ISP account AND are willing to contract for a phone hookup at your site. On exiting we found the turn around is too tight for our 40' motorhome -- fortunately we did not yet have the toad hooked up. Overall, we had a pleasant stay and would likely stay again -- there isn't much choice in the area for full-hookups.

$18 rate is weekly rate of $125 (contrary to website which states $119 per week). WIFI now available and works great. Big rig accessible. Our back-in site (between two permanently installed trailer houses) needed a little tree trimming, which prevented us from parking as close to the utilities as desired, but one short sewer hose extension got us connected. Trees blocked satellite access, but the new CATV connection worked great so we skipped setting up the portable dish. Power box in excellent condition. Some sites have tables and slabs, most do not. No playground, etc. Rather average park, but it does show interest and care of the visible staff. And the storm shelter is a great plus for this part of tornado country!! We will stay here again.

Rate is monthly rate of $360, which includes $100 electric. We've stayed here several times. The owners/managers are good to work with. One draw-back here is hookups located far at rear of back-in sites requiring sewer extensions (which they will provide if you don't have enough). A real irritant to us are all the owner dogs that roam the area. They are not normally aggressive toward people or pets. Guests are told they have to pick up behind their pets, but the owner dogs run loose and often leave their "marks" behind in your yard. Primarily for that reason, we have decided to try another location next time we visit the area.

Rate above is weekly rate of $90. Metered electric is additional. Sites are grass and quite wide, roads are gravel, most water & sewer hookups are toward front of site rather than rear, especially on back-in sites. Our sewer connection was un-threaded pipe that seemed to be a non-standard size, and stood several inches above the ground meaning we essentially had to figure out how to dump uphill. Due to this and the pipe size, we had to jury-rig a special connection, and could not leave the hose connected between dumps. Park location is 5.5 mi south of the Wal-Mart on the south edge of town. We will return when in the area again, and hope for a site where we can keep the sewer hose connected and dump normally!

Cleanest restrooms/showers I have seen: even SMELLED clean! In spite of recent large expenditure for WiFi improvements, successful connection outside the immediate area in/around the office/bathhouse building was rare for us and others we talked with.

Very nice COE campground with good water and 50a power. We got the normal 50% discount with my Golden Access Passport. We had the only pull-through site in the Eagles Roost loop, and easily managed it with 40' motorhome with car in tow. All sites have plenty of outside room with picnic table, grill & lamp hanger. In spite of info on their website to the contrary, most sites would easily handle our 40' motorhome. One site w/ apx 100' concrete slab is limited to 35' !! Even the turn-around at the end of the loop was wide enough for us to get around with no problems. Bathroom/shower rooms are heated, which was very nice this time of year! Verizon cell phone is weak and/or on analog, but does work. Some sites are satellite TV workable through the trees. Hosts are visible throughout the day, and quite helpful. Very pleasant area to spend some quiet time.

We stayed under Passport America rate for one night. "New RV park" ?? ...apparently nearly 2 years old based on other reviews! Paved roads, but gravel sites (contrary to their advertising and to an earlier review). Tight roads with obstacles at each corner. We had a pull-through site but due to road designs, could not get to it as directed (having to make an impossible turn the "wrong" way on one street) without disconnecting our car. But the site was too short to leave the car connected anyway. The site also was difficult to get into due to placement of the power box right at the edge of the pavement at the left rear of the site. In addition, we could not run our ac (17 amp draw) on the 50a service due to the SurgeGuard shutting down from very low voltage every time the ac tried to kick on. The park mgt was very responsive and knows they have a problem with power at this site, but can do nothing to fix it short of rewiring. They normally put a small rig on this site, but were nearly full when we arrived so put us on the site. I suspect any RV that uses that site is receiving at least some damage to electrical components that likely will show up later when they have no idea where or why it happened. Nice park in some ways, and convenient to I-10, but we were glad we were there for only one night, and that the weather was cool overnight!

Long pull-through sites with grass, concrete patio w/table are nice. Our site was paved, but contrary to other posts, we did see some gravel sites in one area of the park. The free WIFI consists of two systems ...one was very weak at our site. The stronger one still dropped the connection from time to time, and was via a system called CoachConnect, which required a second log-in to use a web browser. Sometimes the second log-in would not happen, and when it did it NEVER re-directed us to our original web page as it indicated it would. The park is nice enough, but we felt their regular prices are way beyond reason. We were here with a large rally group that had negotiated a lower price for the group. We would never pay their normal rates, but then again, we have no interest in two pools and the typical other "destination" park add-ons.

Most sites aren't really pull-through, but there is enough solid grass around them to utilize them as pull-throughs. Hookups are "shared" between sites, which are quite close together. Electric is limited to 30a with old connections in fair condition. Contrary to the previous review, there are restrooms in the "RV park," but the building is pretty small. We did not check them out. Highway noise may bother some folks, but with double insulated windows and a/c fan running, we had a good night's sleep. With Passport America rate of $10 per night for up to two nights, we had no complaints in this location as a highway stopover.

Great RV park for military ID card holders. My Golden Access card got me a $3 per nigh discount. The entry is somewhat tight, and the registration parking slots are too short for big rigs, but after getting past registration roads and turns were ok. They have the best laid out sites/slabs w/integrated patio that we have seen, though our slab was somewhat low in the front causing the front (where the entry door is) to be a little high after leveling. Though we were a good distance from the clubhouse, the free WIFI did work most of the time. It did drop out and/or just quit working from time to time. We were close to the freeway, but with double insulated glass didn't really notice the freeway noise. We will definitely stop here again in the future!

We found this RV park to be fair to average with dirt/gravel roads pull-through sites too short for both RV car. There is a little grass around two edges of the campground. We were there for a week, and after one windy day late in the week we left with everything inside and out covered with dust & smelling dusty. Sites are pretty close together, but we did manage to squeeze our car between us and our neighbor. Many sites have non-standard 3" sewer hookups with bad threads making use of our screw-in connector difficult, and some sewer connections stick up high enough that we witnessed a neighbor having difficulty dumping . Sites have no patio, a few have a table, free WIFI works very well, and there is free CATV. We did not check out the indoor pool. Their somewhat high-end price is brought within reason with a Passport America discount, though they do tack on an additional charge for 50a power. We might stay here again, but would likely check other alternatives first.

We spent a very pleasant week here. The park was about 80% empty this time of year. We requested a site with our back to the afternoon sun, and were quickly and easily accommodated. Management was quite friendly, as were other park guests. We enjoyed the daily afternoon "social hour" a few times and the Sunday evening ice cream social. Our only "complaint" would be the lack of any WiFi options ...even pay WiFi is better than none! $12 is member nightly rate. They also have weekly & monthly rates. We stayed a week. With weekly rate of $65 plus electric, ($20.60 at .10 per KWH) our nightly cost was $13.59.

This a mobile home community with some sites available to RVs. LONG (apx 1 hr) check-in procedure w/14-page legal-size 30 day lease, over 30 would require credit report so we did 30 & then "renewed" for second 30 & the for additional 11 days. Utilities not configured for RV, water & sewer poorly located, natural gas connection in way of back-in (we parked on concrete patio instead of on dirt beside it). Water hydrant in hole in ground (would have been under RV). 3" sewer pipe non-standard for RV connection (would have been behind RV). Large round hole where electric used to be underground would have been under RV. Sloped 2ft or more to rear. Lots of red ants. Mail via USPS, but took nearly 3 weeks to get mail box key. Most rules are commonly broken: 1 pet limit, barking dogs, dogs running loose, firecrackers, 2 car limit but up to 7 cars at some sites. Free WIFI available only in clubhouse. Observed police action in park 3 times plus private security 2 times during 10 week stay. On checkout were told est 4-6 weeks to get remaining portion of deposit back after final electric reading. In midst of all their RV-unfriendly "stuff," they had a very supportive staff.

Mostly open campground with few trees. Grass is sparse. Long pull-through sites with well-placed utilities hookups. Very convenient location. Some train noise, but not bad in our rig with dual pane windows.

Passport America website indicates the regular nightly rate for this park is $36. That has to be a mis-representation to allow them to charge nearly full rate for Passport America customers. If not, this park is considerably over-priced for its fair to average facilities, with gravel roads, sites, and poorly placed utilities. The 50% discount Passport America price was about what it should be BEFORE the discount. Very long pull-through sites are compromised by having all utility connections on the road at the extreme rear of the site. We would have had to have 1 or 2 extensions in order to connect our sewer. Grass needed mowing. No WIFI in park, but we were able to pick up a workable signal from the Flying J WIFI about 1/4 mile away. We would not likely choose to stay here more than one to two nights.

Very tight roads inside park, free wifi worked great, nice grass between sites, we stayed or 5 days while in the area for a family wedding. We had advance reservations, and the staff was easy to work with when we had to change our arrival date due to medical problems. It is a little on the pricey side, especially for being a pretty average park with very narrow roads and a large tree that need trimming on the exit route.

Older park with some new wide & long concrete sites just off US 81 in the south side of town. A little street noise, but not enough to disturb us. Weekly rate $70. With Passport America, our total cost for one week at 1/2 the nightly rate was $56!! No extras like pool, playground, etc. We spent a very pleasant week here, and will definitely come back!

Very nice state park, though most sites are very open, a few sites need some tree trimming. Easy satellite access. Each site has concrete patio, grill, fire ring, and concrete picnic table. Deer frequently seen in campground. No weekly or monthly rates. We spent a very pleasant week here.

We stayed one month at rate of $300 including electric. Our main dis-satisfaction with the park is the 8-10 dogs belonging to the owner families which roam freely throughout the area 24 hrs a day. (Occupant dogs are required to be on a leash!!) Walking our dogs was a hassle as we often had to constantly shoo the dogs away. They don't act like they would attack other dogs, but one day I did have to carry our puppy because it was impossible to walk her with her trying to get away from another dog constantly sniffing her. We always had to watch our step outside as we frequently had dog "piles" in our site, right outside our door, and by our car, left by the roaming dogs. We've stayed in the park three years now on our return to the area to visit family, but are tempted to find another location next year to avoid the roaming dog problem.

Our nightly rate of $10 was from a monthly charge of $275. Metered electric was in addition to that. This is an old park with many run-down RVs and lots of clutter, junked cars, etc. Many RVs have long expired license plates. Several have tarps tied over the roofs. The park has all the right rules, but with no apparent enforcement of any of those rules. We had to request our sewer connection be cleared twice when we could not dump due to stopped up lines. They were pretty prompt in responding, but our sewer connector pipe was badly broken just below ground level, and again further down. Our 50a power connection was new. 26 of the listed 120 sites are mobile homes sites in a nicely manicured area in the rear of the RV area. Park management and residents were quite friendly. Surrounding area roads are in bad repair. We saw road construction warning signs, but no hint of any road work going on! We spent a very peaceful month in the park. With some attention to repair of the sewer system and to enforcing existing rules against abandoned cars and clutter, this could be a pretty decent location.

Very nice, especially for a state park! There are two camping areas, one on the mountain top and one at the lake about 1,000 feet lower. We stayed on the mountain top with our grandson's Cub Scout group. The utility pedestal on our site looked brand new, with fresh concrete. We also heard from a neighboring camper that the park will begin other improvements soon. The only part of the visit that made us nervous was the last 15 miles of winding narrow state highway getting there from the south with our 40' motorhome towing our car! They even gave me a 15% discount with my Golden Access Passport!

Very nice park. Good weekly and monthly rates: we stayed 2 months. WiFi was weak and intermittent but the management is actively working additional access points and other improvements. Very high water pressure so you MUST use a regulator. We also experienced high voltage a time or two, with our Surge Guard system shutting down our power. Management said they have had complaints from others with surge protectors in the past. Try to avoid sites on the row closest to US 231 as they are having problems with water seeping out of the leech field of the septic system of the restaurant next door. The water department is looking at the problem and the restaurant is moving very soon, so that problem should be going away. Most of the rigs on that row are actually in storage, and are moved by management when someone comes in and no other sites are available. The park is very well kept, and management is highly visible keeping things in shape daily. We are often in the area, and will stay again.

Park is just off I-10 south of exit 26. Level gravel sites with grass between. Several long-term residents, but park is neat and clean. Linkspot WIFI is expensive at $25/week. Book and VCR tape library available. Meeting room available. 50 amp sites are limited to maybe 2 of the 44. We might choose to stay there again.

We stayed overnight on a spacious pull-through site on a very, very cold and windy night ...we were the only rig in the park! It is located off I-40 business on the west side of town w/easy access. Owner lived on site, and was quite friendly. There are no trees. There was some grass between sites. Excellent overnight stop just far enough from the interstate to be away from most of the noise.

We stayed for 2 nights on a nice spacious pull-through concrete pad. WIFI was available at cost through an outside provider. Access was easy for our 40' rig and toad. The park was very neat and clean, but grass was somewhat limited. We would stay again if passing through the area.

We stayed a month ($300 rate) in a large newly re-done gravel pull-through site with nice little grass yard. Access to the pull through is not as good as it could be as you have to circle through the older park of the park around a couple of tight turns. Most sites are spacious back-in. There are many permanent residents. Owners live on the grounds, and are available and friendly. Improvements have been made since an earlier stay 2 years prior, but traffic on the 2 lane county road is much heavier than 2 yrs ago, much of it truck traffic involved in nearby development and well-drilling. We had a pleasant stay, and will return as you can't beat the price and it is near family members we visit regularly. It is a short drive to Eagle Mountain lake, but rather off the beaten path for people just passing through.

We stayed for a week (7 nights for price of 6) in one of 6 fairly new "big rig" full-hookup pull-through sites. All sites were pretty spacious with lots of grass and nice trees. WIFI was available in or immediately outside the office with plans underway to put up antenna's to make wifi available throughout the park. Sites are either gravel or dirt, and each has a picnic table and fire ring. Lots of recreational activities available, ie. swimming, boating, miniature golf, golf course nearby, Sunday worship in nice little chapel. Very nice country setting a few miles from Fairmont. We will definitely return when we are in the area.

We stayed two nights. Had a pull-through site up front ...most sites further back look like long-term folks. Sites are dirt w/grass between "shared yards," (parked awning to awning). Most sites are a bit tight (trees need some trimming), but workable. They have a small store and LP on site. The management was friendly, neighborhood quiet, and we had a pleasant stay.

The fairgrounds is open to camping year round, they have grass sites, nice trees, some full hookups, and a dump station. Security is provided by regular Country Sheriff patrols. We spent a great 5 days there ...very pleasant small town atmosphere. We will definitely be back to this one!

The sites here are sand/grass. A few had "sink in" problems! Some sites are seriously unlevel. The only problem on our site was that the sewer had to run uphill to dump!! Although this is a golf resort park, we enjoyed a week there without playing golf. We would likely stay again if in the area.

Rates are $11.50 per day plus electric for Escapee members; $21 per day for non-members, this is a nice country park just south of town with wide grassy sites and some social activities available. We spent a very pleasant week there and will definitely return again.

Campground is just off US 231 on the banks of the Tallaposa River, some sites have carport covers tall enough for any RV, but no longer than 30', narrow road down to the park, beware to swing wide on the left turn back up the road on leaving (we scratched our paint on some metal stantions hidden in the weeds), many permanent residents, this campground is nothing fancy, but we have had a pleasant stay both times we have stayed there for a week each time.

Some concrete pads are too short, water & electric are shared between sites so some must run cord & hose under the RV, it was noisy some evenings due to loud music from the amusement park next door, we were able to connect to free WIFI from a nearby motel, campground was under new management, nothing fancy but ok, easy access from I-35, we stayed a week, and might stay again.

Very neat, clean park. Paved roads with very fine gravel throughout rest of campground. There are small trees between sites. Our driver's side front window was nicely shaded in the heat of the afternoon. Sites are a little close together, but not uncomfortably so. There is a little grass along one side of campground. Campground employees are very visible doing maintenance tasks around the campground every day. We will definitely stay again. We stayed one week for $100 weekly rate!

22 full hookups sites in regular campground. 150 water & electric in overflow area/field setting. Nice clubhouse/meeting room. Very good country gospel show every third Friday night, sometimes with well-known guest singers. We spent a great weekend here with a group. Definitely one to experience!
