This park is 2 miles south of I-30, has pot holes at the entrance and throughout the park, has grass/dirt sites that get very muddy after it rains, (our RV left ruts in the RV pad area when we pulled in and out the next day), and charges extra if you use a credit card. You can get TV service by using your RV antenna or satellite dish. There was no Wi-Fi service and I do not know if there the park had a modem hookup, but I doubt it. We will not stay at this park again.
This park is unique in the fact that it resides adjacent to and in the flood plain of the Mississippi River between the river itself and the levee that protects the city when the river water level rises. That means that you and your RV are right next to the river and can watch the tug boats and barges from your back window if you have a 5th wheel or front window if you have a motor home. The park’s brochure said it had Wi-Fi throughout the park but I could not get any signal where I was parked. You can get TV service by using your RV antenna or satellite dish. Some of the sites have concrete pads and the other pads are gravel. The park had several days of major rain storms before we arrived, water was in puddles everywhere, and we could not get into or out of our RV without stepping in about on inch of water. The park has no control over the weather but does have control over the height of the RV pads. Park roads were gravel. The staff was friendly. We would stay at this park again.
The park looks fairly new, is very clean, has pull-through sites that are level and large enough to accommodate a big rig RV and tow vehicle. It is pet friendly, has a fenced grassy area for pets to be off-leash. It is very convenient to exit #53 on I-65, and is situated close to restaurants (Cracker Barrel, McDonald’s, Pizza Hut, Subway, Wendy’s), fuel stops and motels. We were able to get the free Wi-Fi and 70 cable TV channels at our RV site. The laundry area is very nice and clean with two large capacity washers and dryers. The restrooms and showers are in top-notch shape. All roads and sites in the park are gravel. Most sites have a picnic table and all sites have a good-sized area of grass separating the RV sites. The staff personnel were very friendly. Noise comes into the park from: 1) daily trains as they pass the park and blow their whistles at the road crossing one-half mile away on two active train tracks adjacent to the south side of the RV park, and 2) car and truck traffic from I-65 about a quarter of a mile north of the park and highway 90 next to the RV park. We stayed in the north end of the park and did not find the noise from the trains or the traffic to be overly disturbing. We would stay at the park again because it was very convenient, well maintained, and extremely clean, and all the staff were very friendly and courteous.
The park has a variety of sites that will accommodate any size of equipment from tents to big rig RVs. The park has two levels. The upper level is open and the sites are situated on a terraced hillside. The lower level is flat and shaded. All sites are gravel. A couple of roads are paved but most are gravel that creates some dust from traffic. The staff members were very friendly and courteous. The park is well suited for families who want a lot of activities for the children and for couples who just want to sit back and relax. The park is located adjacent to US route 220 which means there is constant noise from the traffic. But, that noise was not enough to disturb us or keep us awake at night.
The park is situated in a forested area next to Alum Creek Lake, and is approximately 6 miles from I-71. All roads and sites in the park are paved, and have a picnic table and fire ring. The sites vary in length and some can accommodate a 40-foot RV but others cannot. It was quiet and very dark at night because there is no lighting along the roads or at the sites. We got local digital TV reception by using our TV antenna on the roof. The one thing to really note is that the sites only have electricity and do not have any water or sewer hookups. You can fill your fresh water tank with potable water from a special faucet at the dump station area. Afterwards, if you need more water, you can get it by taking a water container to one of the drinking water fountains located within walking distance of your RV, filling your water container from the side faucet, carrying the filled container back to your RV, and pouring the water into your fresh water tank. We stayed for five nights while visiting relatives in the area, and would stay at the park again.
