Huge, excellent park. Some roads a little narrow, but passable with a big rig. Staff is excellent. Brand new pools and play area. Very convenient to I-75 and US-41. I would have given it a 10 but it's pretty expensive: price reflects Monthly rate.

This is mainly a MHP with a few sites attached to the back. If you have a big rig, Do Not expect to get in here without incident. We had to move several railroad ties quite a distance to get my 38' RV in the RV section. Took about an hour to park in the narrow spot. Most of the roads are very narrow. I imagine if you have a smaller rig, it's fine. Management is very nice, but Corporate pulls the strings, and doesn't spend any money. The people we met here are very nice. OK if you're looking for a place to stay while working. No amenities (pools, etc.). The new clubhouse is nice but very small. Water pressure comes and goes. We won't come back (assuming we can get OUT of here).

This is a fine place. Pro: Easy in/out. Right off I-10. Con: Not very convenient to grocery or other shopping. Lady in the office nice. Price reflects NACC membership ($21/50 amp; $18/30 amp). We spent only one night but I wouldn't have a problem spending a couple more days here on the way "back". Not a destination campground, but a good place for us old folks to get off the road for a night or two.

Nice place. Not much in the immediate vicinity, but the Caverns are right there. Office staff very polite and helpful; sites ez to park and hookups no problem. Cable works great and is included. I'm sorry we didn't spend more time there. Huge gift/souvenir shop. We'll be back.

Wonderful people run this place -- available even if the office is closed. Place is very clean and well-kept. Very convenient (about 3 mi) to all kinds of shopping. Very peaceful on the lake; easy in and out with big rig. Can't wait to come back. Price represents weekly rate. If they had a hot tub, I'd give it a 10.

Price reflects weekly rate. Owners/managers very hands-on. Good news is it's very nicely appointed and maintained, like somebody's aunt's place. Bad news is you feel like if you step out of line, you have to stand in a corner. We'll be back: the price is great and the people are less intimidating once you get to know them.

A little tough getting help when we showed up, but great park host and office people. Sewer hookup was WAY behind the spaces; our neighbor had 4 hoses connected together! There are different sections with different amenities. One morning we woke up and the circus was in our front yard, and gone the next day. We would come back again.

Nice park. Flat, easy, convenient. Nicely managed. Would come back.

Nice location. Friendly and helpful management. Clean pools and laundry rooms. Easy to drive and pull-thru, albeit pretty "sardine". More of a place to park while you're enjoying Vegas than a destination spot in and of itself. For the price, I doubt it can be beat in this area.

Very nicely laid out park. The manager is very friendly and helpful. Very good location. Ninety minutes from the Grand Canyon, and about an hour from Sedona. Walking distance from several shops, and about a mile from a mall. Several trees make parking a big rig interesting, but there's plenty of room. (We chose a back-in, even though pull-throughs were available.) We'll be back!

Love this campground. Nicely appointed, run by friendly people, very easy to pull in and out of, and close enough to "civilization". A bit far (30 min) from Albuquerque proper, but right on the outskirts, only a mile and a half from I-40, and boasting beautiful views whenever you head into town. Pool not open until Memorial Day, but at least the sign says "seasonally". We'll probably be back -- everything in town is quite a bit more expensive.

Right around the corner from the Cadillac Ranch, and close to Palo Duro Canyon, this jewel of a campground is easy to maneuver, easy to park, and easy to hook up in. Being a full-timer, we've seen over 100 parks. This is among the best. My only disappointment was that the pool and hot tub are not open until Memorial Day, even though it was in the 80s when we were there in April. We'll be back.

Price reflects two-month stay and does not include electric ($.13/kWh). Love this place. Indoor/outdoor swimming pool; indoor/outdoor hot tubs. Friendly, efficient staff. Most sites are back-ins, and about 50% have only 30A. Very convenient to WalMart, etc. 15 minutes to major shopping (Pharr). Great dog area. Lots of social activities (cards, senior olympics, breakfasts, etc.). Every Sunday is a country shindig, if you like that sort of thing. Not quite enough "regular" entertainment like many of the RV parks in the area have. We'll be back next year, even though electric is supposed to go up to $.16/kWh.

Very easy to get in and out of with a big rig. Down side is, the lack of trees makes for a very windy area. (We were here in April.) Mostly just gravel with a few trees, but wide, level, sites. Free cable TV, pool, hot tub. Great dog area. Live bison. Efficient and personable staff. VERY convenient to I-40 which makes for bad congestion at rush hour. No road noise. I think we'll be back when we come through again.

We keep coming back to this campground when we're in the area, even though we keep shopping for something cheaper. (Price reflects weekly rate.) The sites are a little tough to get a big rig into and out of, but they have great parking help. The laundry rooms are clean, the personnel are very nice and helpful, and the location is very convenient both to Fort Worth and Dallas. We will be back again in the fall.

This is a very convenient campground to Baytown or other east side attractions. Very nice staff and easy navigation. One half mile from I-10. Of course, an hour or more from the west side of Houston. The site was very muddy from the recent rains, but had a level blacktop pad. We will stay here again.

Price reflects one night at half price per Passport. Regular $ is $70. We stayed here only two nights, passing through, but this was the way to do it. Easy walk to the French Quarter (about a quarter mile), and "stalag-like" security, which is necessary in that section of town. Great level sites with easy hookups, cable TV, pools, great staff, all the amenities you would expect for that price. If you're going to see the Big Easy, and can afford it, stay here.

This is one of the nicest state parks we have ever visited. It has sewer, which a lot of parks don't. It is easy parking (no pull-through spots, though) for a big rig, although some of the spots are for smaller campers. The emphasis here is on nature: lots of trails for walking, some for biking. The park is a good drive from "civilization", and forget setting up your Dish, but if you want to get away, this could be your favorite spot.

We stayed here for 5 weeks. Basically a residential CG, formerly a fishing lodge, it is known locally primarily for the restaurant. Give the food and the atmosphere both an "A." They also give food discounts to campers staying here. Everyone we met on the staff was wonderful. A little tight getting into our site but there were bigger spots. Not the most modern CG, no pool, etc., but great laundry facilities and close enough to "civilization." We'd come here again in a heartbeat.

Price reflects discount. A beautifully kept and aptly run KOA. All the staff are great. I wish I could afford to stay here year-round! But we'll be back next year.

When you make the turn onto 95th street, you'll think it's a mistake. But the KOA is set in behind tire shops and pizza places in its own convenient little green world. Great people (including some new ones) run this place, and the paths are interestingly winding, making it tough to maneuver a big rig. They had excellent parking help. If you like scenery and amenities, you may think it's a great park.

This is our third time staying here. It has recently changed owners and they have made changes. The hot tub is under repair (indefinitely), the game room is gone, and they charge extra for electric. Still a nice park (formerly a KOA), and we were treated professionally and courteously. Very convenient to "civilization." We might come back again.

Great stopover. Convenient to beaches and shopping. Very nice staff. Easy, level spots. Nothing special but nothing difficult. For the price, wonderful. Will definitely be back when we come thru again. Price reflects Passport America discount and extra charge for 50A.

If you are a member of Harvest Hosts ($20/yr) you can boon dock here (and other Harvest Host places) for free for one night only. The owner of this vineyard was very friendly and accommodating. The road in is still dirt, but we made it easily in our 35' 5er. We parked in the big, surprisingly level, field. Very convenient to I-16.

I love it here because it is convenient and easy to set up. Passport rate of $14 doesn't hurt, either. No pool, no game room, etc. But the staff is nice and the digs are great. Come for the chili cook off in November! We were there in 2008. Only thing is, the "dump station" is just a sewer hookup on the way out, no hose, concrete pad, etc. Also easy to get to. I'll be back whenever I'm in the area.

We don't normally "do" destination campgrounds, but this was an exception. We went for the Pumpkin Festival in October, and had a great experience. Overall, SMCG is a great family park, lots to do, especially for the kids, dog friendly, picturesque, great water pressure and electric, etc. Even if there's nothing happening there, the mountain is impressive to see. We found the CG fairly wooded. I didn't even try to set up the Dish, but my neighbor said he got DirecTV after a little effort. I gave it an "8" because it does well at what it tries to do, but I don't think I'll come back. Been there, done that.

This is one of the nicer parks we've ever been to, in three years of full-timing. We snagged a lakeside spot and had a beautiful view. NOTE: If your GPS tells you to go up the south side of the mountain, DO NOT DO IT. Gold Point North is a straight, flat road, but for some reason Google Maps does not recognize it, and sent me up Gold Point South. Not for the faint of heart. But the park is very convenient to shopping and dining (it's really in Hixson, just a few miles from Chatt). One of my favorite stops. We'll be back.

We love it here. Big rig easy in, easy out. If you care about such things, you may want to find out what is going on while you're there. Parking lots can get full and noisy during the weekends. The only down side is you never know what gate is going to be open, so getting in and out of the fairgrounds can be tricky. We'll be back.

Pretty tough to drive a big rig in and out of, but not impossible. The hostess was very nice and accommodating. Most rigs are permanent or seasonal and not kept up. If that bothers you, you might want to skip this place. But there's not a lot of competition in the area. Laundry room not too clean, but functional. Playground for the kids. Suits our needs; we'll probably come back.

We were here for a rally but liked it so much we stayed an extra day: the price is for the one day with 50A and full hook ups. Not shady (which we like), very convenient to shopping and dining. Not a destination cg, but worth a look if you're passing through or in the area for a different reason. (I heard that the showers were clean but don't know personally.)

We were misled about the rate, which is unusual for a KOA. It was an acceptable stay, but nothing to write home about. We probably won't come back. There are cheaper places just as convenient for us and nicer. Having been full-timing for three years, I would say this is not typical KOA service.

The owners are personal and professional. However they do not train their staff well at all. We met three different young people who didn't know anything about, well, anything related to camping. When we expressed our concerns to the owners however, they were very receptive and apologetic. That aside, the campground is nice and accessible, nice laundry and pool, game room, etc. We did have problems getting enough voltage because they are putting in a new section, plus we were here in the hottest part of summer. Price reflects the monthly rate, which was slightly cheaper than three weeks' weekly rate. (I had to do my own math.) We will probably camp here again, given that it's more convenient to shopping, etc., than our other options; reasonably priced, and those "helpers" will probably not last.

This always has been a great campground, and now that it's under new ownership a lot of marginal things have been fixed or improved. It's steep getting out but no problem with our big rig. Kind of dusty on the access road, but that's the worst of it. We look forward to coming back every year on our tour. And now the staff is great, too.

Although this location is mostly permanent mobile homes, we always look forward to coming back to visit. Easy big-rig parking and setup (this is our third time here in 3 years), only 10 minutes from Saratoga Springs, in a nice quiet area. Not a destination park, no pool, playground, etc., but friendly, easy, convenient and flat. I wish we had planned to spend more time here this year. I'm not sure how many RV sites they have, and they don't take reservations.

Very shady/wooded. Nice creek and pleasant surroundings. But this was not our cup of tea. I didn't even try to point the Dish, and no cable. The lake beach was nice; we prefer a pool. 30A max, and the voltage (according to my EMS) was pretty iffy when the CG was full. It happens that two of the ladies in the office are very new to camping (thus clueless about a lot of questions). This park DEFINITELY needs a parking guide, as small, winding and hilly as the paths are. If you have a big rig, and are new at it, this campground will be a challenge. Overall, I think if you're looking for a retreat in the woods with no frills, particularly with a pop-up or other small rig, this may be the place for you. If you're looking for a KOA, go elsewhere.

We have been full-timing for three years (this is our 100th campground stay) and this is definitely one of the two worst campgrounds we have been in. It was nearly impossible to drive our 35' 5-er through the narrow streets. None of the streets are marked one-way, but are barely wide enough for one vehicle. They advertise as "pet friendly" but YOU MAY NOT WALK YOUR DOG ANYWHERE ON THE CAMPGROUND! The sewer receptacle on our site is a full 16" above ground, higher than the hookup on our camper. While guiding us into the campsite, the owner directed us into a cable which broke our air conditioner. No refunds, of course. Max is 30Amp (most 20Amp). Even though I called for a reservation, and then called to confirm, they had us down for August arrival instead of June. It is very pretty here. But we will NOT be back.

What a beautiful park! Your choice of shady (forget Dish) or front with no trees. Huge swimming pool (funny hours: 12-4, 5-8). Great entertainment on holiday weekends. We met several of the staff and they were all very professional and hospitable (although some were more knowledgeable than others). Nice playground, gameroom, and mini-golf. Nicely appointed. Very nice laundry setup. We will definitely go back.

Not a destination by itself, but for just passing through or working, it's ideal. Easy to get in and out (we have a 35' 5'ver), convenient to food stores and shopping: Ashland is about 2 miles up the road. Close to an Outdoor World, as well. Has a small playground for kids. No trees means easy Dish reception. Downside would be the road noise and weak water pressure. But we'll go back again next time through. Be careful w/GPS. It's on Washington Hwy, not OLD Washington Hwy!

This is not a destination site. All sites are easy-access. Park is very laid-back and the owner/operators are very nice. Gravel sites are level and not too crowded. The grassy area is without sewer, but cheaper and shadier. Located 1/2 hour from Charleston or Huntington. Local to small town shopping. It's very quiet (except when car wash is operating). If we are in the area again, we will definitely stay at "Jim's Campground and Car Wash".

The park is pretty and well-maintained. The trees make it difficult (impossible some places) to receive Dish, and there is very little antenna reception. Office people were nice, but as a rule they do NOT accept mail. Makes it tough for us full-timers. Pretty much a toss-up for me between here and Burns Park.

The manager is very friendly. She keeps her big, loud, friendly dog in the office with her (which is OK with us; we're dog lovers). The park is not a "vacation spot". It has a pool but no hot tub, no playground, no designated dog area (although there are plenty of places to walk your dog). But it is very laid back and easy to get in and out of. We paid $250 plus electric for the month. This park is convenient to Galveston, NASA, and the Houston Rodeo. There are both an LP store and a small RV parts place less than a mile away. No road noise. We'll definitely come back to this park if the opportunity arises.

The location of the park is great. It's very convenient to everything. However, it's difficult to find your way within the park, even with the map, and I would not call it big rig friendly. It's a nice park if you like shade, and don't want to set up your dish. (They have cable.) Management was nice enough, but not overly so. We'll probably use it again for a short stop on the way to somewhere else.

Very easy access and very nice management. Dog parks need a little work, but not too bad. Very convenient hookups. We look forward to going back.

We stayed here for most of the month of August, so they gave us a monthly rate of $300, which worked out to about $12.50 a day for our stay. We stayed on site #48 which is a huge back in just as you enter the campground area. A gorgeous view of the pond (with fountain), horse barn and golf course. Staff was very friendly, stopping to chat when out and about taking care of business. They have a honey-wagon service...every Monday the honey wagon comes along and takes care of the tanks for $12.50. Even though the dump station was less than 100 yards from our door, we appreciated this service! The campground is a hike from pretty much anything. And there's nothing as far as a pool or hiking trails (no one is allowed on the golf course unless they're golfing). However, this is the second time we've camped here and we'll no doubt be back.

This is the second time we've camped here. Yes, the Interstate road noise is loud, but constant enough to be kind of soothing. We love the owner. He's so relaxed and cool about things. No sooner did we get set up (with a warm greeting and "supervision" by his black lab), he offered us tomatoes and corn! He grows a lot of stuff here and welcomes us to enjoy the spoils! With Passport America, he gave us six nights for $100. Full hook-ups. Easy access to major roads. No other perks, but that works for us.

This adult park has friendly staff but no ambiance. It has large pull-through sites, a very small game room, and a decent, clean laundry facility with 4-5 washers and dryers. The full-time residents keep to themselves. The owners' dogs are the only dogs permitted to be left outside unattended (in a fenced yard). Unfortunately, they bark quite a bit at anything that moves. Hilltop now belongs to Passport America. For $12/$13 a night, it's not bad as a stop-over.

We were very disappointed that we were not warned of the low branches in the pet friendly section of the park! We trusted that the staff would have warned us that our 35' long and 13'2" high rig would fit. It was impossible to maneuver into the first assigned site (#92). We made it into site #85 after scraping a tree branch the size of a trunk, causing $7,000+ worth of damage on our month-old fifth wheel's roof. The rubber roof was torn in four places and the frame was bent. Had the staff warned us, or had our reservation for three days not been paid in advance, (and was non-refundable -- only transferable to another date within a year), we would not have attempted it.

Everything was fine here except the burrs and pine spurs all over the property. They were extremely sharp and got stuck in the dog's paws. We found that only walking the dogs on the pavement was an improvement, but not a cure-all. Human bare feet were also a no-no.
