Very pricey but worth it if you use the amenities. This park crawls with staff, the grounds and buildings are groomed to the max and you can't turn around without seeing a gardener. Two pools, well equipped health club, huge clubhouse with nightly activities, food trucks come to the park with gourmet food, on site RV detailing, a bit of golf, tennis and two very, very large enclosed dog runs. Location, location, location - great area to enjoy the warm weather in the middle of the winter. In January temps ranged at and around 80F. This park caters to big rigs that want to stay for a month or two. Monthly rates are like a second mortgage but you don't hear any complaints about the cost. You get what you pay for.
Everything you've read is true. We stayed here twice in the past month, once going to the desert and once coming back for two days. After all the oranges were eaten from the first trip could not wait to get back for more of the best oranges I've ever had. When people talk about orange trees at each site they're not kidding. Large trees heavy with fruit in January, picking poles make it a snap to get your fill. I can't imagine all the campers in the world even picking all these oranges! Best Wi-Fi I've seen in an RV park ever, very fast and very strong. I needed propane and the staff picked up my empty bottle, filled it and returned it to my rig. As mentioned coffee in the office and fat pills every morning.
As other have said there is airport noise, railroad noise and road noise. For the most part at night we did not have any problems with noise but it was there during the day. Pull through spots are very narrow but long I had to move the picnic table to the very edge of the spot to walk past my trailer with comfort. What really bothered me about this park was security or lack of it. There is no fence around the park, and in addition, it shares roads with a mobile home park. Anyone can walk off the street to the RVs on the entire perimeter of the park. Some of the spots back onto the street making it about 10 steps from the sidewalk to anything left out. I noticed locals rummaging through the dumpsters and recycle bins for recyclables to cash in. This was a park where I was glad to have a locking chock, hitch lock, and lock on my surge guard.
This is a wonderful park and we were sorry that we only stayed one night. Our pull through site was easy in and easy out, grassy and level. All utilities worked just fine and we had a clear line of site for roof mounted satellite dish. The park WiFi was O.K. but bogged down during peak periods. Pet friendly but no dog run, lots of open areas with literally acres of open grass.
Rate was for Passport America. Nice little park with just a few RV spots. More like a mobile home park with a few transient spots. The RV spots are MUCH too close together, I can open my door and touch the RV parked next to me. Wi-Fi is open and works well, no obstacles to satellite reception, and the spot is level. Utilities work just fine. A few grass areas for pets but no dog run. All in all a good spot for one night while driving the Oregon Coast but would not want to be here for more than one day.
Rate was with Good Sam discount. This place was OK for one night but I'd hate to stay here for longer. 99% permanents, with folks leaving for work before 0600. Most of the park is gravel and the grass areas all have signs to keep your dogs off the grass. The "dog run" is outside the gate and not fenced, appeared to me to not be pet friendly. Wi-Fi was spotty but it was there. I was able to use my satellite dish with no problems. All utilities worked just fine. My pull-through spot really was a back in spot due to a utility pole but it worked OK. All in all "just OK."
Rate is Passport America. We really enjoyed this park. Just understand there is no cell service either AT&T or Verizon, no Wi-Fi and no local TV. We could not use our satellite due to tree coverage but was told if we switched spots and reversed our rig we'd get satellite but did not bother. The spots are nicely separated, lots of nice grass areas for dogs, a duck pond, and wild turkeys. It was a nice place to sit out and enjoy a little peace and quite. This park would probably not be a good place for kids and not a good place if you can't live without your cell phone but we really enjoyed our stay here.
Earlier reviews are accurate. It is just a gravel parking lot with narrow parking spots with utilities. When we got here, there was no one in the office and no one answered the phone number posted on the door. Since we had made reservations I was a bit puzzled. Three was no note about what to do or where to go. Since there was only ONE spot left open I took it, dropped $25 in an envelope with a note, and put it in the available slot. I question what would have happened if they'd been full. I guess I'd have kept on going. Most of the spots are taken by semi-permanent construction workers with their trailers and work trucks. Lots of tents and later on in the evening more RVs pulled in and just parked where they could some with utilities and some running extension cords up to the office. The good news is this area is pretty laid back. I suspect you could dry camp anywhere you wanted and save the $25.
OK park, right on Hwy. 50 with easy in and easy out. Our spot was level with gravel on both sides but a concrete slab in front for a vehicle. We asked for and received a pull through which did not have shade. Looks as the back in spots did have some shade but with a long trailer this is what we wanted. The utilities were not standard at all. The dump was a plastic tube that sat about 6"-8" above ground level making gravity feed difficult to say the least. I had to remove all the adaptors off my hose and shove the raw end into the hole to make it work. The city water was also very non-standard. The hose big came out of the ground straight up and the pressure was to say the least low. Also the nature of the valve was such that you could not use a normal RV hose, the type that has a plastic connector on the end. The plastic would run into the knurled nobs on the water valve. All in all for one night it was OK. We wound up using our water and water pump which was good because their pressure was way below par.
Very well run, organized to the point that it probably drives some folks nuts. It's a senior park and it was very nice not to be overrun by little kids and teenagers. As you can imagine quiet. Very, very pet friendly the nicest dog run I've seen and everywhere you look there are doo bags and trash receptacles. Tons of snow bird types with months long stays, the entire park is clean and ship shape. Maintenance crews water down the dirt to hold the dust down. The spots are level and everything works great. The Wi-Fi was OK, not great but worked just fine. Nice location North of town with an easy drive and lots of shopping nearby.
Interesting park with a fitting name. First of all there's no office, nice setup actually when you pull in a host meets you in a golf cart, leads you to your site and registers you there. The entire park is 100% rock and gravel. No dirt, no grass which made it tough on my poor dog. The sites are separated by large hedges giving loads of privacy. All the utilities worked just fine and WiFi was decent. The two restroom/showers are on the pool deck. Both unisex giving you your own little private bathroom with toilet and shower, very clean and well maintained. The turns in the park are very tight, with a 20' truck towing a 28' trailer I had to really be on my toes leaving the park getting pointed in the correct direction. I'd stay here again all things considered.
Kind of old and run down, when we were here I think the tents may have out numbered the RVs. Good WiFi, our site shared a pedestal with the rig next door. The 30A was available to me, not sure if they had 50A. Site not totally level, gravel. Ground cover in the park is rock and foxtails, not real pretty. Good for a one night stay. Funny thing is I made reservations a while back and when I got here they could care less. Not sure what would have happened if they'd been full.
Nice park extremely close to Hwy 58 so it is easy to find and easy to exit. Park looks new. It's very well kept with on the ball management. Everything works well. The spots are long, wide and flat. I would not like this park for more than a day or two. No shade at all and the spots have no visual separation between them. It's just a flat spot with nice, new and flat concrete pads. Really pet friendly, along the fence line there are dog doo bag dispensers, a dog run at one end of the park and lots of lawns. I would stay here again while passing this way.
Our rate reflects the Passport America deal. However they do not honor Passport America on Friday or Saturday and do not take reservations for Passport America. We paid full price on Friday and Saturday (with a 10% senior discount) then got the half price deal on Sunday. This is a very nice park in easy walking distance of the state park in Columbia and a short drive to Sonora. WiFi was some of the best I've seen in a wide open park like this, really nice! The spaces are well apart from each other with a natural setting, no fences between spots. The spots are scattered around the park in a natural setting - very nice.
As others have said this is a very, very nice park! Pulling in, the park looks more like a small country club than a RV park. The check in is in a very large, nice building with three woman all in semi-uniforms with name tags checking campers in. You're led to your spot by a staffer in an electric cart, everything works perfectly, the spots are level and clean with enough room for my 28' trailer and 20' long truck. We've already made reservations here for our next trip.
Our rate was Passport America. This is a extremely well run and professional park. It's a large park and part of a chain. The office is large with a well equipped store, the employees hand you a package of things to do in the city with directions, maps and coupon books. The park is located in the city itself and a short drive to River Walk, close to large supermarkets and shopping. The neighborhood around the park is a bit iffy but the park has security and I saw no problems or heard of any. We'd stay here again for an extended stay if the opportunity arose.
San Antonio to El Paso is too far for a one day drive, Fort Stockton is half way and one of the only cities to stop. This park is O.K. for a one night stop and as previous reviewers have said it's just a gravel parking lot. Well actually it's not gravel it's rocks and you don't want to be walking around barefoot or even in thin soled shoes. It's just fine though and I'd stay here again. The owner is a nice guy and for $16 what do you want? The power and water are good, the cable system is "just o.k." and the Wi-Fi has been turned off due to abuse by one of the full timers who down loaded something that set off alarms with the cable company. It's a "park and stay in your rig" type of place.
Our rate reflects Passport America rate. This is a jewel and really does deserve the 10 rating that I've never given before. We went from a 20' Class B to a 27' trailer and truck. My confidence in backing up and tight cornering is lacking at this point as we only took possession of the trailer this week. I phoned this park and asked for a pull through explaining our new rig. We got a perfect spot and the owner made sure I had no problems getting in. The restroom are private rooms with toilet and shower, clean or I should say spotless. The park is beautiful, the lake is great and there is a hiking trail around the lake. The owners are anxious to make you happy. They are full timers them self and understand exactly what you want. Bruce installed a top notch cable TV system and the Wi-Fi is perfect. We will come back here anytime while traveling on I-10.
Right across the street from a beautiful white sand public beach, very nice swimming pool on the property. The park is very small, looks like it used to be a small restaurant that was converted to an RV park. Our spot was a concrete slab that was perfectly label, the utilities worked fine. We were here after the season, there was no traffic noise and no crowds! The showers are in a private restroom with toilet, there are only two and are uni-sex. Shower was 100% the best I've seen in an RV park. I suspect if it had been during the season with only two it could have been a wait. This is a great and place and I'd love to stay here again!
Georgia State Park that is more like a commercial RV park (in a good way). Good electric, water and cable TV at this State Park, no Wi-Fi that we could find even though other reviewers had it. We were camped in loop #2 and used our portable Hot Spot since cell service was fine. Great level parking spots, spotless bath house with one washer and dryer at each bath house. Located on acres and acres of park land with lots to do and only a short drive to Savannah's historic district. The park office sells basic camping supplies and the ranger we talked to was very helpful and friendly. Would stay here again.
Our $8 rate is based on the senior pass holder rate for National Parks, non-senior rate is $16. We camp in a 20' Class "B" so if you're the owner of a 40' class "A" this review will probably not be of any use to you. There was an abundance of sites available when we pulled in here in October, almost all the sites on loop "T" were pull through but almost none of them were level. With our short little 20 footer I was able to find a spot that was almost level and we could live with. Our picnic table and fire ring were down the hill from the site with no steps and the ground and leaves were wet so we did not try to use it, some of the sites had uphill walks to their tables almost none of the sites had all the amenities on the same level as the rigs. The bath house was no where in site from our parking spot so we did not use it and can't rate it. All in all we found it a very pleasant camping experience and enjoyed the break from wallet busting RV park rates.
It's hard to complain when you pay $12 a night (Passport America rate). Was promised full hookup on the phone but while we were hooking up an employee ran up and told us we had to move because they had a 40 foot rig coming in and needed that spot, (we have a 20' class "B"). The next 15 minutes consisted of trying to find a semi-level spot. Most of the spots are not level, things are just haphazard with non-consistent utilities, tables, etc. There's trash piled up in the middle of the park waiting to be set on fire, a large trash fire on the edge of the park. In general I just kept remembering that Tobacco Road is in North Carolina, and think I just found it.
What a nice place! Only open for six years and situated around two man made lakes. The owners show a well deserved pride at what they've created. Spacious sites around the lake, very good Wi-Fi at no extra cost. Everything just works as it should. Great staff with extras - trash pick up at your site for example. Started to stay for two days and extended the visit to five it was just to relaxing to leave. An easy drive to the resort city of Ocean City expect crowds on summer weekends.
Spotlessly clean restrooms and showers but old and dated. Just OK hookups, I had power problems for a while I thought my stereo system had failed until I realized it was the external power, I guess the voltage would drop once in a while and all the electronics would click off. I should thank them for reminding me to buy a surge protector. The park claims to have Wi-Fi, they do but you better plan on hauling your computer into the office. They have a simple household wireless router sitting on a desk in the back room. No way you're going to be using it in your rig. No cable but local TV via the antenna is good.
Our rate reflects Passport America rate. Once you find this campground it's a gem, it's WAY off the beaten path but what a beauty. The sites are level with a concrete pad next to your rig holding a picnic table. All the utilities appear brand new. Beautiful little lake in the middle of the camp, the entire setting is very nice. It was a short overnight stay for us in the middle of a bone rattling thunder storm but we still enjoyed the campground.
This place is a city, really with 800+ sites when it fills up there could be a couple thousand people staying here. It is very well run, very organized and deserves high ratings. The staff is professional, garbage is picked up at your site each morning, no need to search for a dumpster. There are multiple bath houses, the one closest to us was just great! Latest plumbing hardware you could find. The shower was something out of a movie: a square flush mounted shower head in the ceiling, it was like standing under a warm waterfall. It's amazing they can keep up with the hot water demand. I never wanted to leave. The camp has a big store with all the things you might need on the road. I was able to find a new water filter and reducer. All in all it's a nice place to stay and I'd visit again.
Our rate was based on Passport America (1/2 price). Wi-Fi is very important to us, even though they advertise Wi-Fi and the lady who checked us in gave us a spot that was going to have good coverage for all practical purposes there is no Wi-Fi. There is a strong Wi-Fi signal but the speed is at best dial up and not even that. Happily they have good AT&T 3G coverage. Big place with what seems to be lots of activities for kids, nice looking pool and a HUGE jumping ball full of screaming kids. The site was nice, under a large oak tree with good water, electric and sewer. Firewood is sold at a low price and they allow open fires on site, no fire rings but lots of stone fire pits have been built by previous campers.
Pretty nice little campground off the beaten track in Massena, NY. You need to be pretty close to the office to get their Wi-Fi as near as I can tell there is no external antenna for the Wi-Fi just a household router in the office. The staff we encountered was either indifferent or in one case down right rude. The one gentleman in the evening did not want to be bother from his web surfing to bother with customers. The store is GREAT, lots of RV supplies, things you'd normally find in a large RV store. Not a bad place but I would not want to be here more than an overnight.
How would you like to stay at an RV park where you had your own private bathroom including shower? Well then this is your park! There are six private bathrooms, each with it's own shower. Well heated, clean and just like you'd want at home. This park is very well run, looks new and everything works well. On the banks of the Ottawa River in a beautiful setting. The owners are just great giving us a tour so we could pick our own spot. Little beach by the river with chairs to relax in, each site is in a little private alcove. Level with nice utilities. I'd stay here again in a heartbeat!
We stumbled on this park when looking for another park in the area, this one looked better so we check it out. Great find! Your results may differ since we got what I consider the best spot in the park, site 25A sits on the point of the lake closest to the water and next to the small boat docks. The view from our "front yard" is worth a million dollars! There's a beach for swimming and when we were here a bunch of folks were in the water. Looks like a really fun place for kids. Looking around the park I would say the rest of the sites are just OK and most of the park is taken up by permanent structures and most of the campers are here for the entire season and own their lots. There are only about 20 "visitor" spots. I found the restrooms to be a bit untidy but usable, the showers are in a separate building, the showers are each in their own room and are unisex. Three showers total. The only complaint we had is we needed to move on and only spent one night here, I'd have enjoyed a week or so.
We spent three nights at this park in September when the weather was absolutely perfect which may be one of the reasons it was so enjoyable. The park has a great location right on the banks of the St. Mary's River and a terrific place to sit and fish or just watch the large ships as they go in and out of the locks. Friendly staff, a very nice place to sit and drink FREE coffee in the morning. Large, clean restrooms and good showers. The park is large and they use every inch to get another rig in. There are no full hookups and the lack of at site sewage causes more than usual campers in the showers and rest rooms. Most of the campers are staying for weeks or months and the desire not to fill the tanks is apparent. We liked the park and would visit again if in the area.
What a gem!! City run park and this park shows the pride of a beautiful city built around scenic Sunday Lake. The lake itself is something off a postcard and to wake up each morning and see the lake is worth the price of admission. Almost all the spots have 20/30/50 amps, water and sewage. Most of the sites are grass and many on the lakeshore. There are four or five concrete pads that are 100% level and clean. The restrooms are cleaned each morning, nice roomy showers that cost .25 but are well worth the small cost. I could see staying here for the entire summer!
A bit too expensive for what it is. The park is well maintained, the owners seem to be on the ball and trying hard. Utilities at the sites work well and the sites are spacious. The Wi-Fi is just weird, when you check in they print out a receipt with a user name and password. Both of these are impossible to remember and a pain to type in. If you try to access the Wi-Fi with a different computer or device you can't do it. The access code is only good for one computer and only good for one day. Way too much trouble for something that should be free and easy to use. The store is the best I've seen at a RV park, great selection of little things you might need, Fuses, bulbs little connectors things you'd normally see at a well stocked RV parts store. I'd stay here again but would have to think twice based on the price.
Great park in a good location. Located near two highways but nice and quiet. Walking distance of a Tim Horten's and good supermarkets within a couple of blocks. Spacious spots with good hookups, friendly staff and the office is open 24/7. Wi-Fi was fine even far from the store. We'd stay here again.
We enjoyed our stay here just before Labor Day 2011. Gordie Howe park is run by the city and is very well kept and efficient. The staff is professional and friendly, and the store is well stocked including a freezer with local beef, pork and chicken as well as frozen dinners. The sites are almost secluded due to the landscaping and each site has tons of room, the hookups worked well, and using the one centrally located dump was never a problem.
The key word is Resort! This is a great place and worth the money. One warning, the Wi-Fi is only available in the rec. center but once in that building there is lots to do and a very comfortable place to use your computer. The rec. center has a library with comfortable leather chairs, pool tables, an indoor and outdoor pool, weight room and pool tables. Extremely friendly staff (they want to sell you a time share). Great cable TV and each site has a little cabana with your own propane grill (they provide the propane and a wire brush). We loved this place and might join their organization just to stay at parks like this in our travels.
Good location for Banff, run by the Canadian Government. Very friendly staff, nice clean heated restrooms but only one shower so go early or late or prepare to wait. Easy in and out sites with good hookups and level sites. Can't beat the views of the Rockies! We'd stay here again.
One dollar for a shower, ten dollars to use the Wi-Fi. Sites not level, just rutted dirt. Next to a busy highway with lots of road noise, under the flight path for Calgary International Airport. Staff indifferent but not rude. Would not stay here again.
Stayed here for six nights while visiting Yellowstone. This park is just a mile or two from the North entrance to the park and on the banks of the Yellowstone River. Very quiet as the park sits below the highway and there is not much traffic. The sites are level and gravel with good hookups and staff available almost 24/7. The Wi-Fi is passable and for the most part reaches the entire park. Two restroom and shower buildings. Very clean and maintained, lots of hot water. Laundry facilities in each building. The park has many full time residents as they contract with some of the vendors in the park for employees. Great location, just a short walk to town and if you wanted right into Yellowstone.
Really nice park in a very small town right on the main drag. Great staff and nice park. We were early and they gave us a big spot with full time shade, only problem with our spot was the inability to reach the dump, seems like we had the only spot that required an extra long hose but it was simple to use their other dump site on the way out. There is a cafe on site that is owned by the park owners. The park offers a free breakfast in the morning for campers. Eggs, pancakes and coffee you can add anything off the menu for a nominal charge. As well as the free breakfast they do serve dinner, if I was asked to rate the dinner it would be two maybe three stars. The restroom and shower area was HUGE, perfect facilities and great shower. All in all a very nice park.
Just a one night stay on the way to Yellowstone, very large KOA and very well kept. There was a constant flow of park maintenance carts at any given time. Initially our spot did not have a picnic table but a simple request got a table with no problem. The staff was friendly and helpful. The location of this park is great, a Starbucks almost directly across the street as well as a cluster of fast food places. It's nice when you don't have a tow vehicle to be able to walk and get a bite to eat without unhooking.
Very, very old former KOA campground. Wi-Fi was spotty at best The shower was the size of a phone booth although clean. The men's room was a "one holer" and the stall was about the size of a shoe box. Only one rest room for the entire campground. I'll give it a pass next time, needs lots of work.
Great park!! Located on a working cattle ranch they've done a fantastic job of making this a memorable spot to stay. Hiking trails start right at the camp sites and you can wander for hours. Wild life abounds, there are fish filled lakes and wonderful clear night skies unspoiled by city lights. The shower may have been one of the best I've ever found camping. The caretakers are obsessive about keeping things clean and working well. A little patio area with available propane cookers as well as a charcoal Webber. Big stack of DVDs to borrow spacious clean group area, horseshoe pits, volleyball net and beautiful lawn.
We've stayed here perhaps four times in the past 18 months, this is our "go to" park when visiting Ashland. All in all a very professionally run park with good full time maintenance. A short walk to a little outlet mall and a couple of eating spots. Just a bit longer walk to a nice super market and more restaurants. Since we camp in a class "B" without a tow vehicle it's nice to be able to find places in walking distance. It's also a nice park when coming back in late from a play in Ashland, spots are always easy to get in and out of. The showers cost .25 but I've never needed more than one quarter, always lots of hot water and never a crowd.
