Excellent campground with pool, carpet golf, basketball court, playground, and two fenced off-leash dog areas. Very pet friendly. The staff was warm and welcoming and knowledgeable about the sightseeing sites in the area. A very large bonus was the BBQ stand on the premises operated by a lovely young couple. This Bates City BBQ is worth stopping here when anywhere near the area. Super clean, well managed and well staffed campground.
On our way home to Georgia after three months in Minnesota and this was a timely place to stop and I'm glad we did. Originally planned on one night but stayed for two. You know you are somewhere special when there is fresh produce in the office with a sign that says "help yourself". The campground is clean and the staff is very friendly and accommodating. There is also a book exchange, though not large, had a nice selection of books. Though close to the highway, our stay was peaceful and quiet. We have put Whittington Woods on our very short "Places to Stay Again" list
Well kept secret for such a neat park. Most of the sites overlook a well stocked 100 acre lake. Fishing is good and there is a swimming beach. The campground is quiet with only the sounds of nature to entertain you. There is a well kept municipal golf course, picnic area, Frisbee golf and athletic fields as part of this municipal complex. I hesitate to tell the world about this park since if the word gets out, we won't be able to get a reservation.
Lovely campground with great views on the lake front and fantastic old trees. Had a problem with a bad 50 amp receptacle and reported it to the lady in the entrance booth and she called the maintenance man immediately. The repair man almost beat me back to the rig and replaced the receptacle in a short time. The maintenance guy was friendly and competent. Birding here was excellent, and we had no problems with overhanging limbs and our motorhome is 12 feet 6 inches high. If you stay here, visit SAIA's meat market which is about 3 miles West on highway 190 and try the oyster Po Boy. We will definitely return here in the future.
This is a comfortable basic RV park with an interesting LOW history. The place has a comfortable, easy going nature and someone has taken the time to plant several cactus gardens which are interesting. This is on our "return to" list of parks. Might be fun to stay here for a week or so and use as a base camp to explore this end of New Mexico.
Normally, we don't stay in high end campgrounds, but our rig needed servicing so we killed two birds with one stone. The campground lived up to expectations and even had a very friendly staff. The restaurant has a fairly good breakfast buffet. We would enjoy staying here again.
We stayed here 5 or 6 years ago when it was a KOA and thought it was a nice park, however time has a way of changing things. The sites are gravel in need of some basic leveling and additional gravel. The concrete patio was in poor repair with a broken off corner. This campground had a large number of long term residents who started leaving at 5 AM. There are a number of cats roving the campground which initially was fine with us since we are pet lovers, but when one is walking on your roof during the night and howling, it is a tad upsetting. For a quick one night stay, I might stay here again, but would check out the competition first.
It appears this campground has tried to shoe horn in as many RVs as possible, and has two RVs connecting to the same power panels. We were on a 50A breaker and the trailer next to us was on the 30A breaker. To much power draw and we lost one leg of our service. After some effort, we were moved to another site. The first site was mostly gravel but the second site was rutted dirt. The campground is full of pipeline crew folks and many of them tend to leave early for work which is not conducive to us old folks sleeping in. We will boon dock at a truck stop rather than stay here again.
This is one tremendously under rated campground. Nice big comfortable sites with up to date hookups, concrete roads and pads with concrete patios. The friendly accommodating owner lives on the site and keeps the grounds spotless. Talk about kid friendly; in the neighborhood, there is a beautiful city park across the road with up to date playground equipment. There is a lounge/game room and a book exchange. The only problem we noted about this park, was the city street has a couple of rough railroad tracks when you get off the interstate, but if you take it slowly, that is no big deal. This one has gone on our return to parks. BTW, the owner recommended some really good restaurants so make sure you ask her.
This was a first for us since we originally planned on staying for two nights but stayed on for a total of eight. We could reach out the MH door and pick oranges off the tree and pick lemons and grapefruit in the park. The couple managing the place were friendly and fun and the other campers were a joy to be with. These folks could teach the RV world some things about how to run an RV park. The only negative thing was that there was no place for the dogs to roam off leash, but otherwise the park was very pet friendly. Highly recommend.
This park had a weird layout. We had to park our towed in an area remote from our camp site. There is a large train maintenance and switching yard next to the campground, which makes this a very noisy place.
