Rate reflects Golden Age. The park is located outside of Yellowstone and its main drawback is that you will need to drive about 20 miles before you get to the action. If you choose to stay here, leave early to do your driving as it seems most people in the park sleep in until about 10:00 AM. After that time, the roads are crowded. The sites are all dirt as well as the roads, so you will have dust. The NPS has suspended having Rangers give talks at this camp, so you will need to go into Yellowstone or Grand Tetons to hear them.
This is basically a open field with water and electric hook ups. The RV hook ups are around the edge of a large sloping field. The sites are grass and not level. It is OK for an overnight stay, but there are no facilities. I would not stay here again.
We found this campground while passing through Macon. It is close to the interstate and makes a great overnight stop. We were able to store our 5th wheel for a few days in a parking lot, while we explored Atlanta, thus avoiding trying to find a park in Atlanta. The parks only drawback I thought was that some of the sites are not level and require using boards to level the RV.
Very nice COE park. Only negative is that it is a ways off the Hwy to use as an overnight stop. Takes about 10 minutes from the exit. There is a very nice bike / walkway along the river that is available to campers. We would stay here again.
Most all that needs to be said about the park has been said in previous writings. The location is easy to find if you check the reference map. I found the directions in the PA book were hard to understand. We were given a spot near the rear under an old railroad bridge. W/E no sewer. It is a convenient location to stay to visit downtown Little Rock. If you are staying more than overnight, it might be worth the extra $10 to get a site on the river so you can enjoy the night lights of Little Rock. We will come back.
This is more like a low budget camping resort than a RV park. Most of the sites have permanent RVs parked and the it appears that short timers are used as fill ins on less desirable spaces. There is a steep gravel road to reach the park and you need to be sure that your vehicle is sized correctly. Bath houses are very clean. We would not stay here again as an overnight location due to the difficulty of the entrance road.
They have raised the rates since the last review. They have both 30 and 50 amp power available, but you should check the sites before hooking up to determine what is at your site. Water pressure is strong, so use a regulator. The showers are located in the bathrooms near the theater. We were able to see the play and have dinner. The play was great, the meal was OK. It is a very quiet location and is close to the Shaker Village at Pleasant Hill. We will make sure to visit the park again in the future.
As previous reported: this is basically a gravel parking area with hook ups. The Wi-Fi is an extra charge. It is very convenient to I-85. We were parked next to the bath house. There are no extras in the park such as pool or recreation rooms. It is an alternative to Wal-Mart with hook ups. It is walking distance to several restaurants. It is the most convenient to Atlanta.
The location is about 10 miles north of I-74. It is easy to locate following the directions in the PA book. The sites are gravel or sand and require some leveling. The showers are located in the double wide trailer they use for an office. Be sure to ask for a key as they keep the door locked. The owner and crews are working to update the sites and are pouring concrete slabs and upgrading power to 50 amps. They will provide 50 to 30 amp adapters if needed for a deposit of $25.00. We would stay here again if passing through.
We found this park in the Passport America guide. It is located near the Interstate, yet because it is behind a ridge you cannot hear the traffic noise. It is very clean and as mentioned, has wonderful management. They have a number of full time campers so they are able to maintain a high quality of maintenance. We will stay here again and recommend it to our fellow campers. If you have a big rig ask for a spot south of the pool area.
I agree with the previous reviews. We also had called ahead and were met by the Hosts. The sites are on grass and when there is rain, they do hold the water. Because of the sand base, the water does drain well when the rain stops. They are adding gravel as revenues allow. They have a very nice recreation room with kitchen, fridge, a book exchange and satellite TV. There are several long term campers on site and they are located to the side away from sites used for travelers. There is a fishing lake about 2.5 miles from the camp where you can fish for $4.00 a day. We will use this as an overnight in the future.
We stayed here on a Holiday weekend and it was busy. We came with a second couple and were able to get pull through sites in an off water loop. On non-holiday weeks, you can drive up with out reservations and most likely find a location on the water. Nice thing is that you can tie your boat off next to your site if you are on the water. All sites have fire rings and tables with a large gravel area where you can set up a shelter on. We will come here in the future.
This was a overnight stop and the site we had was on gravel. They do have concrete sites. We had to use leveling blocks. One of the two bathhouses and showers was just being repaired from recent floods and while they were clean, the showers did not have shower curtains and the dressing areas were not private. The second one was OK and the water was hot. They do have a swimming beach and numerous tent camping sites.
This park is located about 11 miles from the French Quarter on the West bank. Has very quiet sites on the north end. The South end has some boat traffic noise. From I-10 use the Business 90 route and come west through New Orleans and Westwego. Do not try to cross the Huey P. Long bridge as it is under repair and has only one lane open: very tight. All sites are paved and level. The park is recovering from Katrina and most of the trees are small as the big ones were damaged by the storm. Rates reflect Golden Age discount as the pass is honored in all of Louisiana's State Parks.
This is a great overnight stop. The roads and sites are paved concrete. There are some shade trees but not large enough to provide large coverage. They have a shuttle that runs about every 15 minutes 24/7 to the casino area where they have restaurants, movie theaters and shops. Prices in the restaurants are very reasonable. I will stay here again if I am in the area. WiFi is $4 a day, which is not right.
We stayed 6 days this year and it has improved with each stay. They have added a Cedar Wood cabin and have a stocked fishing pond. The cabin is fully equipped with linens and dishes. Need only to bring your clothes and toilet items. They have also added 6 more sites. The sites are gravel and the newer sites need to settle so you might have to use leveling blocks. The rate reflects senior and cash discounts. The park also has a kitchen equipped, barn that can be used for weddings and large parties. Hint, the need for a "Honeymoon" cabin.
This is our 8th time staying at this city park. Over the last several years we have made several suggestions to the managers and the City Park Director that they need to improve the bath house conditions. The park has a very nice fishing pond and a walking path. This year we found that the conditions in the showers are worse than in previous visits. There is no privacy in the bath house when you take showers, no place to hang your clothes and the outside door and shower units cannot be secured. This is a problem because the facilities are used by the non camping public and they can catch you in an embarrassing and helpless state if you are alone. I stand outside the door when my wife is inside to monitor who goes in. I stayed here as I have not located an alternative campsite. I strongly recommend checking out the facilities prior to paying camping fees as they do not give refunds. Only a few of the sites have level concrete pads. The rest are not level and have deep tire ruts that make leveling difficult.
I agree with previous camper but would add that the showers and laundry facilities are excellent. They also have a pool which was not open when I was there. The owners are campers themselves and can readily relate to visitors. They also have a small stocked fishing pond on site. Our rate reflects GS discount. I gave it a 9 because of the gravel sites required me to use leveling blocks ( 2 x 8).
We stayed here after the rains that flooded Nashville and all the water sites were closed. This is a nice park but most of the sites are on fairly steep sites. The entrances to the sites are somewhat narrow and care is needed when parking. It is a good COE park and does need some clean up from the winter season. Before coming to camp, I suggest that you call the host and make sure that your rig will fit in the sites and that you can handle the roads.
This is a very nice and quiet park. We stayed here after the rains and wanted to see the cave. However, the Ohio river was in a flood stage and the path to the cave was covered with water. Should have called ahead. The camp sites are paved with a second paved space for parking a second vehicle. Be sure to bring leveling blocks as the pads are not level Sites only have electric. You will need to fill your water tanks and dump when leaving. There is a ferry ride from the KY. on the south side of the river to IL. Well worth making a detour off I-24 to see and spend a couple of days.
This was our third time staying at this RV park. Each time they have improved. This year they added 6 more sites and are presently adding a rental cabin. The manager makes you feel like a close friend and is helpful in directing you to local sites. Be sure and visit the Osage Indian museums and cultural center while you are here.
We stopped for an overnight rest. It was raining when we stopped and they were trying to smooth out the gravel roadways. Turned into a mud hole. Shower building was very dirty, sewer plugged. When sewer problem was brought to the managers attention, he said they would look at it the next day. The motel and RV park is under renovation and could be a nice overnight stop in the future. Advise to check out the park before using and paying as they do not give refunds.
This is a city park and does not have a good security system. This limits the park to campers. The bath houses do not have private dressing areas and you have to dress in the showers. You have to hang your clothes over shower curtain. The couple who manage the park are great but the city has done very little to improve the campground. The rates were raised in 2009 to $15.00 with electric and water. No sewer.
This is a clean, neat, small park. The manager lives on site. All sites are pull-through. It is off the main road and quiet. It is in the heart of the Osage Indian reservation. The sites are gravel and the pads are level. There is a "Tornado" shelter in the park.
