The park is nice and quiet with large sites. Each site is full hookups plus cable TV and wireless internet. The cable TV has 67 channels and the wireless internet worked well. The sites are gravel or grass and mostly level with a lot of space between sites. There are a number of long term residents but all of them are neat and clean. In fact the whole park is clean. There are no bathrooms or laundry so you will have to have full facilities in your coach. Some sites are wooded and others are open so you can use your satellite on the open sites. Would have rated an 8 except there are no bathrooms or laundry. I used my Passport America membership which made the daily rate $21, not a bad deal at all. I would gladly stay here again the next time I visit Savannah

There is no Wi-fi, but they do have cable TV. I didn't hook up the cable because Chattanooga local channels came in fine with my over the air antenna. I am using my Verizon tether for internet access, and the signal is strong. About half the sites have 50 amp service with the rest being 30 amp. Some of the sites are pretty narrow so you'll want to choose carefully if that matters to you. I'm only staying overnight so that didn't matter to me. After you register you do get to just drive in and pick your spot so you can decide where you want to be after you have a look around. If you want to use your satellite there are open spots available. They have a pool, playground and bathhouse. I didn't get a chance to check out the bathhouse. It is located maybe a mile off of I-75 and is in an urban area so there is some road noise. The campground is gated, and you get the code for it when you register. Not a bad campground for an overnight. It appears there are a couple of longer term trailers here, but I'm not sure I'd want to stay here for more then a few days. I'd stop here again if passing through.

Early November is not the best way to enjoy an RV park in this area of the country, and the rain didn't help any either. But looking around it appears to be a nice park. There is a fishing pond, a pavilion plus a pool on the property, along with the park store and a small selection of food and RV supplies. The Wi-fi signal was strong at my site, and the connection was fairly fast. Verizon Wi-fi and data connection was good, and it was easy to pull in all of the major over the air network channels. The sites have 50/30/15 amp service, water, and sewer hookups. There is also a picnic table and fire ring. The sites are gravel with 12 to 15 ft. of grass between the sites. The site I was on was not real level and would need 3" or more of blocks to level the trailer side-to-side. Sites 20 through 46 are on a small hill so some are not level side-to-side and others front to back. The other sites looked fairly level. Not a huge deal but something to remember. There are also restrooms, bath house, and laundry, but I did not go and check them out. All in all it's a nice park, and I would stop again, not only just for a night but for a weekend.

This is a semi-modern Michigan State Park. 30 amp electric is available but the power pedestals are shared between two sites which means you could have 75' or more to hook up. No water or sewer available at sites. There is no dump station or bath house but there are pit toilets. This is about as close to boon docking as you can get but still have developed sites. Some front sites are large enough for most rigs but the further you go back into the camping area the tighter it gets. I was able to get around towing my 31' 5th wheel but I wouldn't want to try it with anything much bigger. The sites are grass with fire pit and picnic table, large enough to stretch out with brush and trees between sites so you don't see the site next door. This spring has been wet and cold so the majority of sites had very damp ground. Lots of campers were getting stuck or digging deep ruts as the pulled in and out of the sites. Not sure if the weather played any part but the mosquitoes and ticks were terrible but from talking with other ticks seem to be a problem here. Our two dogs got about 6 ticks, we got 4 ticks and we never walked in the woods or or any of the paths. There is a swimming beach and a boat launch about 1-1/2 miles away. The beach looked nice but the water was still too cold to go it. I doubt I will go back here again.

This is an older campground located just over the Colorado River from Parker AZ. Mostly seasonal units with a few short term sites available. Since this is an older campground the sites are cramped and only a few could accept larger rigs. The roads are narrow and only one way, they even have one-way traffic treadles to prevent you from going backwards down the one way roads. There is a cement pad and picnic table at most sites. There is also a boat ramp for access to the river. Staff was friendly and helpful. While the campground is OK, with the other options available near Parker I would most likely not stay here again.

A good place for an overnight or short stay considering the $12 per night fee using Passport America. The campground has 24 full hook up sites (50, 30, 20 amp, water, sewer), restrooms, shower, laundry and free Wi-Fi. All of the facilities were clean when I was here. The sites are fairly close together (maybe 20' wide), are gravel with no picnic tables, fire pit or BBQ. The Wi-Fi is decent and the Verizon voice and data connection is strong. Most of the sites are pull through and should accommodate all but the longest rigs. If you have a 40' rig with a toad or trailer you might have to unhook the toad or trailer. Just a short walk away is the gas station, Subway and Mexican fast food restaurant. There is a bit of noise from the trucks at the gas station and there is plenty of lighting that spills over from the gas station parking lot.

It is a very nice and clean campground. You can pick for a number of different types of sites, from back-in gravel to cement pad riverfront. All sites are wide and long. Besides the Mississippi River there are also a couple of ponds plus lots of well kept grass areas. Benches are provided along the river to pass the time and watch the barges go down the river. The staff was friendly, Verizon cell and data was good, and the WiFi was excellent. While the riverfront sites are great, if you are sensitive to noise the boat traffic on the river may disturb you. Great place to stay if visiting Memphis. I would stay again.

It is a clean park with easy access from I-65. The sites are placed fairly close together being only 20' wide and are gravel with a small cement pad. The sites are long enough for big rigs or to stay hooked up to your trailer. The staff was friendly. There is good Verizon cell and data connection. The Wi-Fi provided was usable. There is lots of road noise as the park is a couple hundred feet off the highway. I would stay here again for an overnight on my way down south.

Stayed here the 4th of July weekend. The are both angled back-in sites and pull-through sites that will easily accommodate the largest rigs. Many of the outer back-in sites are very large being over 50' wide. The park was immaculate even though it was completely full. There is a lot to do here with paved bike/hiking trails, a couple of fishing ponds, a small lake for swimming, playgrounds and more. Across the street there is a large wooded area for more hiking. The restroom/shower building has separate facilities for men, for women and a separate family facility. Verizon cell and data service worked well. The park is fairly new which means that the trees that have been planted throughout the park have not grown very big so there is little shade. If there was more shade I would have rated the park a 9. I will return here again.

They have many activities that you don't normally see at a campground. These include canoeing & tubing on the Flat River, horseback rides and a 9 hole golf course. Since I stayed on Memorial Day weekend they also had a number of special activities for the kids. Most of the sites are very large and clean with no pads but most sites have a nice grass surface. They have 30/15 amp electric, water, fire pit and picnic table at each site. No Wi-Fi is available but Verizon cell and data service was good. I did the canoe float down the river and an hour horseback ride, both were very enjoyable. While the roads are dirt and a bit bumpy I had no problem with them going the posted 5mph speed limit. Problems I had include there were constant low voltage problems (temps were in the mid 80's and the campground was full) and my Surge Guard shut off at least a dozen times on my 2nd day. While they are located on the Flat River, there is no way to easily access the river upstream so you can float down to the landing stop, you have to take their bus, for a fee, to a drop off point a number of miles away. They could provide a spot upstream that could be walked to if they would just turn the far end campsite into an access point. Quiet time was not enforced with loud parties going on until after midnight. Even though they had a camp store close to the camping area you couldn't make reservations for their activities, you had to drive close about a mile to the main office. The firewood they offered for sale was close to worthless, it just wouldn't burn. As much as I really wanted to like this campground the negatives outweigh the positives. I doubt that I will return

Very nice primitive campground. I call it primitive because it is W/E only and just a few sites have pads. But that doesn't mean it is not a nice place to stay. About 25 of the sites were for long term campers but those were mostly separated from the short term sites. Lots of things to do in the campground. There are a number of ponds and streams, a natural swimming hole and a pool, nature trails, fishing pond, basketball & volleyball courts, 2 playgrounds and more. Most sites are shaded but there are a few non-shaded sites available. Site sizes range from only suitable for tents to any size rig. Site I stayed in was a back-in site that was over 60 ft. long by 30 ft. wide. You can even rent a tipi for the night if you want. No WiFi but Verizon cell and data service was good. Stayed here the middle of May and they were still in the process of cleaning the campground and opening the pool but not really unexpected since we've had a cool wet spring and the real camping season doesn't start until Memorial Day. I will come back and stay here again once summer is in full swing so I can enjoy all of the amenities.

I stayed here for 4 days. Very nice state park with large sites, at least 40' between sites. Sites are paved, mostly level with pads or wood deck for picnic table, charcoal grill and fire ring provided. Grounds were well kept with plenty of trash containers located throughout the camping area. There is a laundry with two washers and dryers that is free for campers to use. There is free Wi-Fi but it was all but useless. Verizon cell and data worked well. Nice play areas for kids. In season there is a pool for campers and a wavepool for day use and campers. This is low ground (there is a levee on one side of the park) so heavy rains can cause some water pooling in areas. While I was here we had 1/2" of rain in a day and there was some standing water around a couple of sites. Park Rangers and volunteers were all nice and they handed out good information sheets on local stores and attractions. If you want to visit New Orleans use the free Algiers ferry located about 8 miles away, much easier then driving into N.O. I would have given a 9 rating but the Wi-Fi was so bad, if you are going to promote it as a feature then it should work. I would stay again if I visit the New Orleans area again.

I stayed here two weeks. Sites are setup where you have another site within 6 feet but the other side has a covered picnic table with 30 feet from the next site. Water and electric hookups are at the rear of the site so depending on what site you get you may need 20 foot of water hose or electric cord. Sites are level and paved with a grass area where the picnic table is. Park has Wi-Fi at the main office building. I was able to get Wi-Fi at my site using my external Wi-Fi adapter. Speed was good but it quit working for a few hours couple of times. Verizon cell and data signal was strong. There is an easy accessible dump station at the entrance. The ocean is a 5 minute walk from the RV camping area. There is a paved parking lot near the ocean or you can drive and park on the beach with your car or truck. Camping is allowed right on the beach and I seen a number of class C and 5th wheels camped on the beach during my stay. Beach was always clean with exception of a few things that washed up from the surf. Camping area and beach is well patrolled with the park rangers being visible but not objectionable. The entrance gate is locked during the night. I really enjoyed my stay and only marked it down a bit for no full hook ups and for being a bit cramped on one side of each site. I will stay here again the next time I am in the area.

I stayed a week here. Nightly rate reflects weekly rate. All of the sites are owned sites that are rented out when the owners are not using them. The park and sites are immaculate with great landscaping (except for the sites still for sale). The staff was very friendly and helpful. It is just a short walk to the beach using a private boardwalk/bridge. I didn't use the pool or spa because of cool weather. There are very few park planned activities. In addition to the weekly and monthly rates you are charged for Wi-Fi ($10 per week), electric and they even charge a $5 pet cleanup fee. The Wi-Fi was barely usable as it would stall and kick you off often. The laundry room has only 2 washers and dryers. The bathrooms/showers are only open during the day. The roads are so narrow that two trucks can barely pass side by side. I rated Gulf Waters a 7 because I feel it is a poor value due to the high site rental cost, all of the extra fees and the limited facilities. Doubt that I will stay here again.

I only stayed here overnight and it was cold so didn't walk around the campground a lot. RV pull through sites have 15/30/50 amp electric, water, cable connection, covered picnic table, fire pit and charcoal grill. There is a Wi-Fi hotspot at the main office and I was able to get a good signal at my site using an external Wi-Fi adapter, speed was good. Verizon cell signal was good. Sites are large with a lot of room between sites. Not a lot of trees so the sites are not very private. Roads and sites are paved. Dump station located in campground. Campground was clean and well maintained. Interesting desert wetland area that you can walk around. About 10 miles off of I-10 but it is worth the trip if you want a nice clean campground to stay at. I would stay here again.

The park owners and employees are very friendly and they gave a nice local information package when I checked in. The campground is not much more then a gravel parking lot with a few small trees scattered around with some rock and fence borders. It is located only yards from the highway and there is a lot of highway noise. The campground has sewer, water and electric hookups at each site. WiFi is available in the campground, the signal was strong but the connection stalled often. Verizon cell and data service was good and I ended up using it instead of the WiFi. The sites are fairly narrow. When your slide and awning is out it takes up the whole width of the site. There is a fenced dog run which is nice. The location is about 15 miles from White Sands National Monument and there is a lot of food and shopping close by. I would stay here again only because it is better then any of the other local campgrounds I looked at.

I normally don't stay at KOA campgrounds as they are not the type of campground I prefer but this is the nicest KOA campground that I have stayed at. The other campgrounds in the area were cramped or didn't look very nice. Staff was very friendly and they escorted you to your site and made sure you were pulled in correctly. Everything was clean and neat. Roads and sites are gravel with a grass area. Enough space between sites so you shouldn't feel cramped. Each site has a picnic table and fire pit. Cable TV worked well and had about 10 channels. Few trees but this is a desert area. Had a good Wi-Fi signal at my site but the connection would drop often. Verizon cell and data connection was good. Two nice fenced areas for dogs. Nice laundry room with large dryers that worked really well. You can order dinners at the office and they will deliver it to your site. Downsides are it is about 45 minutes to the caverns and the Wi-Fi dropping out. I stayed here 2 nights and would stay here again

This campground is located only 3 miles from Big Bend National Park behind the Big Bend Resort and has a restaurant (breakfast & lunch only), gas station, convenience store and laundry on site. I stayed there 6 days. Each site has water, 15/30/50 electric, sewer and cable TV (10 channels) on each site. Sites are gravel and fairly level with dirt roads. There is WiFi in the restaurant, and I was able to get a signal at my site using my external WiFi adapter; the speed was good. There is a patch of dried grass on most sites with couple of trees scattered around (they were planting additional trees the last days I was there). This is the desert so don't expect lush greenery or paved roads. The view of the mountains around the campground was great. Had a huge rain storm while there (3 inches in 15 minutes) so things were muddy for a day afterward. But then everyplace was muddy with many Big Bend park roads closed. Staff was friendly and helpful, directing me to local eateries and to where to find ATV outings. I enjoyed my stay and would stay there again.

Overview: It is a mature park. I hesitate to call it an older park as it wears it's age well. With the maturity of the park comes many of the things that attracted me to it. It is a smaller park with about 125 spaces, lots of mature trees for ample shading for most of the spaces and just enough facilities to make it enjoyable.‬ ‪AmeriCana is in a good location close to I-83. It is only 3 miles from Bentsen State Park which is the birding capital to the world. There are many other RV parks in the vicinity so you will see many other Winter Texans biking and walking in the area.‬ ‪This also puts it close to just about any big box store you could ever want, many eateries, movie theaters, malls and gas stations. A few blocks to the west is an area that is a bit run down but I never felt uncomfortable driving through the area. ‬ The lots are one of the most attractive features of AmeriCana. The premium lots are large compared to most parks in the area at the same price point. Each premium lot has a cement patio and is well shaded. Most RV parks would have split them in two and stuffed another RV in the same spot. Each lot has at least a couple of trees with ground cover instead of dirt or gravel. The RV sits on a gravel pad as does your tow vehicle or towed if you have one. The economy lots can be small and cramped with a gravel surface and no cement patio. I highly recommend paying the few extra dollars for a premium site. If you use satellite TV or internet be sure to let them know so you will get a lot with a clear view to the south. All sites are back in and there are lots to fit any size RV. Since this is a mature park the roads are a bit narrow. Two vehicles can pass side by side but that is about it. With the lots being as large as they are I did not observe anyone having a problem backing into their sites. I would guess that 25% of the lots taken by permanent seasonal units that were all kept up very nicely. Each site is full hook up with 30 and/or 50 amp service, water and sewer. Sewer hookups are towards the rear of the lot so make sure you have enough hose to reach, I needed 30 foot of hose. My site had 50 amp only but I have an adapter to hook it up to my 30 amp cable. I never had a problem with electric power or water pressure. The water is hard as it left a lot of water spots when I washed my truck. Cable TV is available through the local cable company. I did not use it as reception was very good for the 4 major networks using my over the air antenna. Free Wi-Fi is available in the park clubhouse only. Air card reception using Verizon was excellent. The park as a pool and hot tub located next to the clubhouse. While not huge they are adequate considering the size of the park. There is a nice patio around the pool/hot tub and it was always clean and neat. There are men and ladies bathrooms with showers located close to the pool. The bathrooms were nice and clean but the showers are a bit on the small size. The laundry room has 4 pay washers and dryers. Also available are mail boxes if you plan on receiving mail. The clubhouse has ample seating for activities and has a large kitchen that is used for weekly breakfasts and other activities. The park is very pet friendly and you will always see someone walking their dog. At the back of the park is a bird sanctuary. It is privately owned by one of the park seasonal residents and it provides a nice stop to have a nice short walk in a wooded area and view a few birds at the feeding station. There are a number of activities planned each day. This varies from Spanish lessons to Bible Study, Exercise classes, Poker, Pokeno, Computer help and bike rides. There are also a number of special events each month that are one time events. I did not participate in the activities but I seen the Pokeno, poker, Spanish lessons and the weekly jam session were very popular. Cost: I paid $130.00 weekly including electric. Daily rates are $30 with monthly rates are $400 not including electric. Good Sam is accepted for a few day on the daily rate. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at AmeriCana. The hosts are super friendly and helpful and all of the parks guests/residents were great. My favorite things was the ample shading and comfortable laid back atmosphere of the park. It was great to have birds in the trees throughout the park instead of a barren plot with little to no landscaping. Almost every evening I would sit on the patio just to relax in the shade and chat with the other guests as they walked by. Almost ever day a flock of parakeets would fly in to occupy the local vegetation. My neighbor had a a hummingbird feeder out and it was interesting to see them fly in to have a drink. I would highly recommend AmeriCana RV Park to anyone visiting the Rio Grande Valley and would suggest that you upgrade to a premium site if at all possible. I would have rated it a 10 if they had Wi-Fi throughout the park.

Nice clean quiet basic park. Spacious grassy sites that are mostly shaded. Each site in the improved area includes accessible water and 20amp/30amp electric hookups, fire ring and picnic table. Two sites are handicapped accessible. There are two playgrounds, a fishing pier, boat landing, beach, two pavilions, horseshoes and disk golf. Firewood is available to purchase. There are paved roads to all the main areas except the rustic camping area. The rest rooms and showers are basic but clean. Staff was friendly and helpful. I will come back and stay here again.
