Nice campground with newer sites and lots of amenities. Has a pool and playground, there is also a pond. Our site was a pull through with a concrete pad. Two sewer connections so you can hookup to the closest one. Campground store had wine, beer and soda, some RV supplies, not much in the way of snacks or food. Doesn't take America Express. There is a cute town about a mile away and lots to do in the area.

Price reflects weekly rate. Nice basic park. There is no pool or clubhouse, so if you are looking for those things you won't be happy here; I happen to like it and the price is great. It's peaceful, there are trees, the road and site pad are graveled and the rest is grass. We have a 39-ft fifth wheel which can sometimes be unwieldy on roads, but we had no trouble here. We have a pull through site. The water spigots are at different heights, ours is very low to the ground and took a bit of finagling for us to get it and the water adapters hooked up. We have a surge protector and the red light has been flashing so there may be issues with some of the pedestals. Trashcans are conveniently located within walking distance. There are some restaurants, a Lowe's, Tractor Supply, gas stations and drugstores about a mile down the road. There are full time residents here, I have no issues with that but it seems to bother some people. Most are well-kept, but there are a couple that have seen better days. Just mentioning it.

Price reflects Passport America discount, which was better than the weekly rate. Park was enormous. We camped here during the off-season, so we didn't have access to all the amenities available during the fall and winter months, like the restaurant and activities. The sites were grass and not very level. This is the only park where we have had to use blocks. The cable also didn't work, and because of large trees, we were unable to use our portable dish. There is no store onsite, and everything is a few miles away, but it was a decent place, and I felt safe there. As usual, we arrived after dark, and it was difficult to identify where the sites were. We parked by the maintenance building, which was a hub of activity each day, so I would recommend parking in the other lot, which I've been told was also more level. They have sirens when 911 is called, so you may hear those go off. The staff and residents couldn't be nicer. There is a golf course onsite if you're into that, and a nice little park area by the restaurant. We saw several deer, large birds, and other wildlife there.

Believe it or not, the price reflects a Good Sam discount. Very nice park. Sites were easy to access, and the utilities were nicely done. We arrived late at night and had no problems hooking up. The sites slope up, so our back end was pretty low to the ground when we leveled out, it concerned me a little since we had a generator on the back, but we cleared the ground by about four inches. We have a 39-ft fifth wheel and had no trouble making the turns, the road can be a little steep as it winds up/down to Lake Travis. I felt like it was a little overpriced, but it was centrally located to everywhere we needed to be.

Very easy to access, grounds are well maintained, and it is quiet. Easy to reach someone by phone to make a reservation, but I went by the office twice and there was no one there. There is a note to see the park attendant in site 22, but they were not home either. Since we arrived at the crack of dawn and will be leaving tonight, I am left wondering how to pay for our stay since I have to use a company credit card and can't just slip cash or a check through the slot. Other than that, it's a nice place with level sites (gravel) and functional hookups that are easy to find. Nothing in walking distance, but there are a couple of towns within driving distance with all the amenities.

Park is beautiful. There are cottages and RV slots. Our space is a little small for a 39-ft rig but they did accommodate us at the last minute and the space they wanted to give us was unexpectedly occupied. The ground has more of a slope than I would like, it's hard to get our 5'er level without lifting the tires off the ground. If they have pull through sites, they don't have a river view that I can tell. That aside, the staff is very friendly and the river view is very nice to wake up to. There is a small store at the office and lots of activity centers. The town of Gore is somewhat small but there is a grocery store, a small cafe, pizza joint, and a hardware store. People are very nice here but it is somewhat remote.

We stayed free because we had our rig serviced here (system won't let me say that). This park has everything. We came to pick up our fifth wheel and just as we were about to hook up, our radiator sprung a leak, so we had to stay put. Our service rep had us towed into the park so we could stay in our rig. There is a Cracker Barrel restaurant. It's easy to maneuver around the park, paved sites, easy hookups and relaxing atmosphere. Since we were stranded, security gave us a number to call and they took us anywhere onsite that we wanted to go, on their golf cart. We didn't really choose to stay here, but it was a nice place.

Price reflects only payment for 50 amp and cable since we are part of their network and technically camped for free. Campground was nice for an overnight stay. We are fairly new to camping and have a 39-ft fifth wheel, we felt that it was a little cramped. Not so much the site itself, but there is not a lot of room to maneuver as you're pulling in. The highway access is close by, but is currently under construction, and getting onto the freeway itself was dicey since there is little running room. That's not a reflection on the park, just a little FYI if you're in the area any time soon. Staff was very nice. No store onsite, shower facilities were clean. Our site was pretty level but not paved.

We got a free stay for signing up to hear their presentation. It's an older park newly acquired by this company and the sites are somewhat closer together than we are used to but they are starting to renovate and intend to make them more spacious and update the poles and hookups. It is a little noisy here because the place is packed and the sites are small (and it's summertime and the kids are out of school). It is a gorgeous place that backs up to Guntersville Lake. The clubhouse is nice, we toured the cabins and would love to build one for ourselves. They were really nice. The sales pitch wasn't hardcore, our rep, was very personable and we have been treated well. One of the sewer hookups was broken, the other one looked full but we were told that's the way they drain; we haven't attempted to empty the tanks yet. Everything else has been good. I really like the packet they hand you at the front gate, it has the cafe menu, a site map, important numbers and a list of things to do in the area, there is a lot to do onsite and in the surrounding area as it is very close to Guntersville State Park. They also have a store at the front of the park and there is a gas station nearby.

The park is in a very good location to take advantage of the Kemah Waterfront. Sites at the front probably experience some traffic noise, we stayed in the back and it wasn't an issue. There is a light at the intersection which makes it extremely easy to get in and out, they have pull-through or back-in sites. There is an adults-only section, but we stayed in the general area and it was quiet. The sites were fairly spacious, only complaint is that there was very little green space, just a small strip of grass between sites, it could use a bit of landscaping - but they do maintain it, no tall grass. They have a small dock and some picnic tables if you want to hang out, and on the weekends you get a front row seat to the fireworks show from the Kemah Boardwalk. The bathrooms were nice...modern, clean, very large, there is also a laundry facility and I believe there was a gym. Several people live onsite and are helpful if you are new to RV'ing as we were at the time, but they aren't intrusive, just friendly. The front office staff was very friendly as well.

Sites were spacious and each spot had a fire pit and a grill. We weren't able to get a waterfront site, but the way the park is laid out, we ended up with a water view. They had a short trail, and a boat ramp as well as storage on the way into the park. The place was pretty quiet despite the crowd, and it was easy to park the rig. Price reflects a 10% Good Sam discount.

Campsite is nicely shaded with plenty of elbow room. The owner, is very friendly and willing to help if needed. His onsite store has pretty much everything you'd need or want if you don't feel like finding a grocery store - and the prices are very competitive. On Saturdays there is sometimes music at the pavilion, ends around 9 pm, otherwise the park is very quiet. There is also a little cafe within walking distance, and the Marina is just down the road. It is a very nice place and I highly recommend it. Our price reflects a Passport America discount. We stayed for a month.
