The only two negatives with our site was that the sewer hookup was set at the back of the site, which required us to park as far back as possible to get close enough to hookup and to have a downward flow. Unfortunately, this put us very close to our neighbor's fire pit. If someone was inclined to have a large fire it could cause damage to the back of our rig. Other than that the park is great, friendly staff, and well worth the price. Wi-Fi was excellent.

Friendly staff, as is usual with most KOAs, and as with most KOAs the price is high. The spaces were very long with sufficient space for any size rig. This sites are cement with a small area with a picnic table on it. There is a hedge that divides the spaces, which is nice to define the spots, but they make it difficult to access some of the hookups. Wi-Fi was good and cable channels were extensive, but we use satellite. For dinner we tried the Main Street BBQ and were very happy with the portions and the quality of the food. The biggest drawback was the price as we've stayed at comparable parks with significantly lower prices, otherwise I'd rate this park as a 10.

Check in was fast and friendly. Site was gravel, as is most of the park. At little grass towards the front for walking the dog. Cable was excellent and the Wi-Fi was better than most. Definitely will stay here again if we stop in Deming. Good for an overnighter or to stay for checking out the area. If there was more grassy area for the pets it would get a 9.

Dirt and gravel lot, but the sites are very level and getting cable for the rate is unusual. Owner was friendly. As stated in other reviews the cable was a bit snowy. We were probably the only non long term RV at the park. Some road noise, but it eased up later in the night. Descent place for an overnight stop and you can't beat the rate for a 50 amp, full hook-up. Since Fort Stockton is a logical stop for traveling through Texas, we will probably stop here again.

Owner and camp host were very helpful and friendly. The camp host met us at the entrance and escorted us to our site. The site was reasonably level, gravel and grass. Park is basically an open field, which would get pretty muddy if it rained any appreciable amount. While a little way off the main road, it actually is adjacent to the freeway, so there is road noise. It's good for an overnight stay.

Fast and friendly check in with escort to your site. Sites are gravel and fairly level. Small grass areas for pets, but some larger areas at the lower level and near the entry road if your pet needs a longer walk. Good Wi-Fi and TV channel selection with good reception. Note: only cash or checks are accepted. We had a severe rainstorm our first afternoon and the area drained well.

Staff member who checked us in was friendly and guided to our site. Roads are a little tight and you have to be aware of the trees. Site was not real level, looking around most could use some attention. Good selection of TV channels, but the signal was grainy. Decent Wi-Fi, slow at times. There was good shade from the previously mentioned trees. Good for an overnight or a few days stay. Typical of KOA's, though, a bit overpriced.

Excellent location for visiting KC and the surrounding area. Adjacent to the Worlds of fun/Oceans of Fun amusement park (campground users get a $10 per person discount on tickets). Sites are large with lots of space between each site. Good amenities, but TV channel selection on their cable is a bit unusual as they do not have a CBS channel (you can get it on the antenna). Wi-Fi is fair, when it's crowded on the weekends it's difficult to get through to websites. Nice pool and they have a lifeguard that helps keep the unruly kids under control, as many parents don't seem to be able to do it.

Fairly typical KOA. Nice staff, they escorted us to our site. Easy on and off to the freeway. Level, long pull through. The campground is basically all gravel, 6 concrete pads, so it's a bit dusty. Good cable and descent WI-FI. A bit of an irritant was that someone, possibly our neighbor, shut off our water sometime during the night, it wasn't leaking or creating a problem. I have no idea why they would do this, but it seems some here feel they can tamper with other people's equipment.

As others have stated, nice sites with phenomenal views. Site was level and the staff was friendly. As another comment stated, the only real complaint was the $7 per day "use fee" added on top of the site fee. There is also a $10 fee to book online through the company who is apparently handling this service. So, what is a reasonable $26 per day fee advertised on their website for a pull through spot becomes an excessive $35 per day fee for W/E/S hook ups with no other amenities. So, while the sites were very good, I will check out staying at some other location if we return to Colorado Springs.

Very friendly staff with an escort to your site and they go over the hookups to let you know where they are located and to make sure you're satisfied with your spot. Trash receptacles at each site. Good selection of cable tv channels and excellent Wi-Fi. The sites are relatively level, not extremely long, but very wide so you have room to park your tow vehicle or toad. The price reflects the $2 charge for cable TV, but the total daily cost is still reasonable considering the amenities. Nice pool, a mini-golf course, kids' play area, fenced pet area if you want to let your dog off leash. The grounds are very big with lots of grass for walking your dog. All-in-all one of the best campgrounds we've stayed at, I only wish it were in a location with more to see and do so. If you're traveling through this area this is definitely a place to stop for a couple of days.

Site was level, but fairly soft gravel, so there were deep ruts in many of the sites. Electric and water hookups were placed well, but the sewer was in the extreme rear of the site requiring about 30' of hose. The sites are set up somewhat strangely, we had to drive through another site to pull into ours and it was a tight turn for our 37' fiver. The lady who checked in was pleasant, but the office did smell like her cats. Good selection of TV channels and good Wi-Fi speeds. All and all a decent place to stay for a day or two, not long term.

As others have stated probably the best overall campground in the Yellowstone area. Large level sites, friendly staff, and great proximity to the park and the town. The two big negatives, very limited cable channel selection and the WIFI arraignmentof having to pay after two hours of use (the time is continuous so if you don't use it you lose it and if you need to check something later you have to pay). For the extremely high rates they could include the WIFI and a better TV channel line up.

Long, level, shady sites. Friendly staff. Victor and neighboring Drigg are both nice small towns with friendly people. The grocery store with a full selection of food and supplies is in Driggs, 8 miles north. Basically the only game in town if you want to stay on the west side of the Tetons. I did think that the rate was a bit high for a campground that did not have cable TV and that required you to pay for internet beyond an hour of use. One word of warning if coming from the Jackson Hole area: the mountain pass has a long 10% grade going on WY22 and ID33 from Jackson to Victor.

Level site, nice facilities, but expensive. Then again it's Vegas. It is irritating that they want to charge you $5 per day for WI-FI at the rates they are getting. It beats the "parking lot" RV campgrounds that proliferate in Vegas.

Nice little park, fairly convenient to Zion Park and St George. Mostly long-termers along the perimeter, but they are friendly. Our spot was level gravel with a small grassy area adjacent to us. There is a nice little grassy area for the dogs, and if you need a longer walk, the park is located in a quiet housing area. WI-FI and TV were very good. While there are closer places to Zion Park, this is a good place if being near St George is a consideration.

Large level sites with room for several vehicles plus the RV, we had a pull through, but the back ins are such that there would be no problem for big rigs to fit or maneuver. The Wi-Fi is very spotty and slow and TV channels via their cable TV is very limited (hence the rating of 8 versus 9 or 10). Location is convenient to shopping and attractions in the San Diego area. Nice areas for walking the dog and walking for exercise. Probably the best value for the San Diego area. We will definitely stay here again.

When we arrived at 2pm, the office was closed with a note to pick our spot and see them in the morning, OK, not a problem. We got set up, pretty level spot, needed a bit of adjustment side-to-side, front to back was perfect after we unhooked from our truck. We knew that there was no cable TV, but imagine our surprise when we were unable to even get a single over the air TV channel. I know Gila Bend is out in the sticks, but zero channels? Anyway, we didn't want to hassle with re-hooking up and moving down the road in the heat of the day. If you have satellite TV then this is a good overnight stop, if not, bring a good book or dvd's. We'll avoid Gila Bend if we're out this way again.

Good sized level spots, good selection of TV channels, good WiFi with some slow periods. Check in was friendly and they provided a local area guide. Limited areas to walk your dog, the better grassy areas are marked off-limits. They have some nice trees that provide some shade in the back-in spots. Roads are very wide making it easy to maneuver. We would stay here again if we ever come back to the Las Cruces area.

This is definitely only an overnight stay stop. There was no cable TV, the WiFi didn't work. We were supposedly put in a "new" site, but there was nothing special about it, just close to the road so we could get out of here fast. We won't be stopping here again.

Older park with a high percentage of full timers, however, the owners were friendly and the amenities for the price are great. Inexpensive laundry, great number of cable TV channels, and excellent WiFi. We will definitely stay here again when we're in the area.

As stated by others, spaces are close, our especially was tight due to being next to the showers and having posts that made it difficult to park our RV and allow room for our slides and still having room to park our truck. Wi-Fi was good, but cost extra. Wife used the laundry and was satisfied. Overall OK for a short stay.

Friendly staff, all concrete level pads. Nice little fishing lake. Good size area for walking dogs. WI-FI is very good. Rate is great and you get all the amenities that most parks charge $10+ more. The only thing that kept me from giving them a 10 was the limited cable channel selection, but it's still not bad. If you're looking for some great beignets or other goodies go to Vee's on Napoleon St, family run and very friendly staff. Hollier's is popular for Cajun specialties, and they have a good BBQ buffet on Wednesdays.

Good location for an overnight stop or to spend time in Tallahassee. The sites are fairly level. The cable TV channel selection is extensive and the WiFi worked well. This is our second stay at this location and we'll probably use it as a kick off point for our trips.

This is our second stay at Shady Acres. This is probably the best value of any campground we've stayed at. The owner is friendly and spends time letting you know about some of the main attractions in the area. The only negative was that the site was a little off level, but overall it had everything we needed. The cable TV channel selection is a bit small, but I don't know of any other place that would even offer it at this rate. If you're going to the Mobile area, this is the place to stay.

Friendly staff, they provide an escort to your site and he makes sure you understand the hook ups they have, and points out locations for walking your pet. They have a large grassy area in the middle of the park and a fair good sized fenced area to let your dog off leash. There is a free shuttle that takes you to the French Quarter so you don't have to hassle traffic and parking. There is a bar area that opens about 5pm that also serves pizza and wings, or you can order them and they will deliver the food to your RV. The park is gravel with landscaping between sites, there is ample room between sites. The cable TV is adequate with 4 HBO stations. The WiFi is the best I've ever experienced. We'll stay here again if we're stopping in New Orleans with the RV.

Sites are level and were just long enough for our 37' Fifth Wheel and Dodge Megacab truck. Cable TV selection is very small, 14 stations with 4 of them being cable news networks. WiFi is fair, it drops the connections fairly often. Lot's of full timers, but it's fairly quiet and good for a couple days if your in the area.

We stayed here visiting friends who are building a home in the area and living in their motorhome in this park. In the summer it's a great place if you're interested in partying on the Guadelupe River with a family. They do not allow pets during the summer. It's not a place to stay if you're on a longer RV vacation. Due to being in a valley, regular TV is virtually non-existent, but you can get good satellite reception. Wi-Fi is decent. If we were coming to the area again, we wouldn't select any of the parks along the river. During the winter they cater to long termers, aka Winter-Texans. Of the parks in the area, it is probably the best of the lot.

Sites are mostly concrete, although the outer sites are still gravel and are for the long termers mostly. The elevation changes makes for some unusual site approaches and exit, some very steep. The level area area is just adequate for a big rig. For the price it's the best park in the OK City area. The cable TV station channel selection is very limited and consists of some unusual stations: of the ESPN's for example, they only offer ESPN-U. The WiFi is fairly good and holds the signal well. When back in the area we'll stay here again.

Sites are fairly level, but tight for big rigs. Cable TV was very basic, WiFi was acceptable, but not great. They do provide reservation services for most of the shows, many with discounts. This is the second stay here for us, it is convenient to the highway and the main strip where most of the shows are. They do have an onsite pay RV wash, which is nice. We like to go to Branson and depending on our route, we'll probably consider staying here again.

Nice park run by very nice people. The roads and sites are packed gravel and fairly level. The WiFi was OK, if you're towards the back, the reception is spotty since the only antennea in on the office building. The cable TV is good, but the channel selection is limited, only 24 channels. When we checked in, the owner spent several minutes pointing out the local attractions and some good restaurants. The park is very dog friendly, our dog was welcome inside the office. We will definitely stay here again if we are in the area.

Park is clean, the owners were friendly, but not available in the office very often. Spaces were fairly level. As stated in other reviews, the dump station at each site was near the rear of the space, so you'll need a long hose to reach it. The pet rules are fairly strict, I understand the desire to keep the park clean and not want their planters fouled, but the requirement to get off the premises for the dogs to do their business is a bit extreme. The price is right though, and it's probably the best deal and nicest park in the Louisville region with access to the various tourist attractions.

Basically, this is a parking lot with RV hookups. The cable is good, the WiFi one of the best speed I've ever had. The spots are plenty wide, but fairly short, our 37' 5th wheel stuck out a little. It's a self-serve, honor system, so you drive around to pick you spot, this time of year there were plenty. Overall, it's probably the best park in the Birmingham area and close the the RTJ Trail golf course. We would stay here again when in the area.

Overall a nice park for a few days stay. The park was clean, the person who checked us in was friendly and provided an escort to the site. There was no shade at our spot, but there are a few that do have it. The cable was very good, the WiFi was just ok, fairly slow during peak hours. They have a large, fenced pet area so you can let your dog off-leash. A recent review complained about the noise, we didn't notice it, there was one train in the early evening and a few helicopters from Ft Rucker, but nothing late. The road noise was minimal and didn't bother our sleep. We will definitely use this park again.

Park was wonderful. Extremely wide sites. Friendly and helpful owners. All the amenities were in great shape. Cable and WI-FI worked very well. They even have an air hose to fill tires, a very nice feature. We would stay here again when passing through the area. The only negative was the proximity to the freeway, some noise, but typical of KOA's

The park is a little unusual, pull throughs were mostly semi-circles, but long enough for out rig, 37'. As stated before it's next to a softball complex, and one night they had games. The freeway noise was not noticeable inside. Owners was very nice, she was out of town on our arrival, but had placed a reserved sign on our site and we paid her when she got back on our second night. We would definitely stay here again. Note: you access the park through the same entry as the softball complex, the road is a little winding and tight, so pay attention to oncoming traffic.

Friendly staff. Campground is spread out so you could be a good way from the new entrance. Our site had a fairly steep ramp to the concrete pad. Good cable, good WiFi. The rate reflex a cash price for Good Sam, saved a couple of bucks. Located about 7 miles north of Troy, a good stopping spot traveling through the area.

We stayed on one of the river view concrete pad sites. Fairly level, but we were in site 91 and it was a pretty tight turn to get in. The were recently flooded and were doing some repairs to the men's showers. No shade on these sites, so if you want shade you need to stay in one of their other areas. No cable, WiFi was spotty. OK for a couple of days. A lot of grassy area to walk a dog. Fairly convenient to Memphis, but the construction in the area on the roads was extensive and the road in generally bad repair, so if you're coming to Memphis any time soon be aware of this, it can cause significant delays.

Staff was friendly. The turn to get on the road to the campground is very tight if you use exit #240 as recommended by mapquest, I would recommend using exit #242 off I-25. We only stayed overnight, but would stay again when travelling through or to the Albuquerque area in the future.

Very friendly and helpful staff. The sites are level and easy to enter with a big rig. The owner has tried to install cable, but the cost was prohibitive. In checking there was only one campground in the area with cable. The antenna was only able to pick up two station with the new digital format. The WIFI is generally good, but does get very slow at times. The only complaint is the rate is a bit high for a location without cable.

Very nice part, sites are adequate, though not exceptionally big. They have nice pools, one being adults only; an on site restaurant and bar; a workout facility (adequate at best). They have on site security and a guarded entry that is nice. For an upscale, and expensive, facility their lack of free WI-FI, it's $6 per day (ridiculous) and limited cable channel selection, about 20, is irritating. We stay here because they do have some grassy areas and good pet walk areas, which is needed for our dog, unlike the majority of those in the area that are big parking lots, and it's close to our daughter's house.

Friendly staff, sites are fairly wide and accommodate large rigs easily. They provide an on sight dinner menu that is brought right to your RV. They serve between 5-7 pm, and they offer a free continental breakfast in the morning. The dinners were priced from $10-15, we didn't avail ourselves, but it was a nice amenity. The only negative was the trains that run through the area staring at 5am, but it wouldn't matter where you stayed in Grants, you will hear them.

The park is located behind a private residence that was or appears to be an old plantation house. The sites are gravel, ours was not level, but it wasn't too difficult to level our 5th wheel with three of the stacking leveling pads. The cable was very good and Wi-Fi was the best we've ever experienced. There are no public restrooms or showers and no other amenities besides the cable and Wi-Fi. It's on the far east portion of the Dallas area, but only about 20 minutes from downtown Dallas. We will stay here again when we are in the Dallas area.

Sites are cement pads with grassy areas in between sits. The sites are large with good space between the sites. The cable TV offering is minimal and the Wi-Fi is spotty at best. It's in the middle of nowhere so if you're not into gambling or spending time at the pool, which was nice, you'll have nothing to do. Lake Charles is the closest city, but there isn't much to do there either. Staff was friendly and they provided a shuttle between the RV area and the casino.

This is the second stay here. Staff was friendly. The site was level, although the pad was barely long enough to fit our 37' unit. One other problem we had was the sewer hookup opening was uphill, although that didn't appear to be a problem at other sites. Although there is no cable, we had excellent reception for the local channels and the WIFI was very good. There aren't many campgrounds in the Charleston area, but I don't think you'll find anything better in the area, especially for the rate. We'll definitely stay here again on our next trip to Charleston.

Park was a decent, basic park. Site was gravel, and required minimal work to get our unit level. Cable TV was good. The WIFI was inoperable, the signal was too weak to allow a login. Since we were here only two nights I didn't speak to the staff about this. There was only one trash receptacle located in the middle of the park, making it inconvenient to throw your trash away. The staff seems friendly and were on site, but not at office very much, so if you have a problem you will need to call them. They do respond quickly. For a couple days stay while visiting Savannah it's fine.

Overall very good, sites were level and adequately wide. Friendly staff and nice store on the grounds. Prior comments were negative to available dog walking, however, there were nice grassy areas at the front of the park and along the adjoining road, the roads are gravel so walking to the grass does require walking over those.

Park is conveniently located off the freeway and on a main road that leads to the downtown area. Manager was very friendly. Site was level side to side but crowned in the middle that caused a little problem while unhooking. Sites were very wide, gravel pad with grassy areas in between. The restroom/shower looked clean, but it was a single, so only one person could use them at a time.

Nice park at a great rate. As the name indicates it has many mature trees that provide nice shade. Lots of grassy areas to walk a dog. Spaces are gravel and ours was level. Manager was very friendly and helpful. Good wifi connection and good cable tv with about 75 stations. It's very quiet and in a residential area. We would stay here again on our next trip to the Mobile area.
