Rate based on Escapees discount. Lovely host. Very friendly and I got the Escapees hug. This is our first stay in an Escapees camp. People seem to be very friendly. Nice looking park. Well kept. Gravel sites. One bathhouse. Nice enough, they ask campers to help keep them clean. Don't offer cable, WiFi is Tangonet pay. Nice walking trails. Would come back again but wouldn't go out of my way to come here.

If I had a over 40' big rig I would be hesitant to come here. The site they put our 36' on wouldn't allow room for our truck without parking sideways. Once you go past the first section other areas are narrow and windy. The road leading out of the park is very narrow. If you want WiFi you would need to go to the great hall to get it. We could not get cell reception at all (ATT) in the park so my WiFi hot spot wouldn't work at the site. There are many that life there permanently but most are in areas that are up the windy path. The activities director was not in for the season until mid May but it looks like there would be plenty of activities for kids. The shower/bathroom is very dated and there isn't many of them around the park. If that is important to you, ask when you check in to be placed close to one or be prepared to walk. Overall its a nice park.

Rate reflects Thousand Trails rate. Gets pretty muddy when it rains but otherwise not bad. Its a little dated but a overall nice park. Not too many "permanent" residents. Nice nature trail around a lake. GPS will turn you into a Visitors Information center that does not have a road leading to the campground. Make sure you visit the center for information on the area. There are several unknown local sites they can lead you to. We will come again.

Rate reflects special coupon rate for 1 month. Coupon obtained at a RV show. It was only good for one visit. We enjoyed this park. There are many who live here but the park doesn't have that "trailer park" look to it. Most of the units are higher end. The only thing that would have made it a 10 would be if they had a Rec Room with activities or gatherings. They tried to have an end of summer BBQ but there were not enough signed up. Most lots are shady as the park name suggests. I would camp here again.

We enjoyed our visit here. Activities for adults and kids. Enjoyed the Adult pool and Adult activity center. This is a large campground and with the heat you couldn't walk from area to area very well. We were in the "A" campground which is closer to the Adult area. Rate reflects Thousand Trails Membership and 50A rate. Personnel very friendly. Saw some roadrunners and a bobcat. They only have 13 pull-through spots. 1 with 50 amp and 6 with 30 full hookup and the other 5 with 30 water/electric. In the entire complex there are only 14 sites with 50 amp hook ups. Some sites had more shade than others. Most sites were gravel. We would definitely return.

Bathrooms and showers are "clean." Someone comes twice a day and does empty the trash and wash the shower, toilet and sink; but there are spider webs and wasp nests, etc. To me that isn't really clean unless those are taken care of also. Friday through Sunday there are many activities for kids. Balance of the week the activities are on your own. Many things are getting broken or worn. Putt Putt has new carpet but ping pong and pool are very "used." Sites are grass or rock. We didn't have issues. 50 amp is $3.00 extra, so that is what my rate reflects. I don't know if I would pay whatever the going rate is for non-Thousand Trail members. Section 1 is a large section and there many who live here all the time. We stayed in section 2 where the pool and activities were closer. It was a nice place to stay but getting run down.

Rate based on weekly rate less Good Sam Discount. This is the best campground we have stayed in and the most expensive but with much to offer. They have much to offer. Lake to fish in, pool, recreation room, computer room, exercise equipment, gas BBQ grills around the lake, gated entrance and dog wash. They also offer a shuttle to the medical facilities as many here are having long term procedures done or are waiting for such. Even with many long term campers this place is very well kept. We stayed here for the convenience to the Minute Maid ball park. The owners have several parks around different locations in Houston. We would stay here again.

Interesting place. We have stayed in City Parks before and this one is slightly different. The pool is closed. Appears to have been closed for quite some time (dry) the restrooms that are open all the time are at the pool. Bring your own toilet paper and they aren't really pleasant. No showers visible. They have another set of toilets by the ball fields that close at night. There are several areas to camp within the park. At one side of the park where the pool is has 2 large parking lots on either side of the road. There are electric boxes and water on multiple sites. You should probably back in as it allows more campers to park but then you take up much of the parking lot which is also used for baseball games etc. We parallel parked (we were the only camper in the entire park). No shade to speak of on this side but most of the electric boxes could handle 50amps. The opposite side parking lot would have been "more quiet" if we were going to stay long I would have gone there as that is the parking lot for the closed pool. On the opposite side of the park are about 3 additional areas to camp. Most are 20/30amp. A few have cement pads, most are on grass. A couple were in grass areas that would be very UN-level to park on. Would work for tents or small campers like a popup. The rangers and police patrol allot during the day. The park closes at midnight.

Our PA rate (with cable/WiFi which is $2.00 extra) was $24 and change, with tax. When the PA website said they had pull through spaces, I requested one. I was told that they only had 1 which I verified when we walked the park. They like to keep it available in case a large unit arrives after hours. We were only 36' plus a truck so we didn't qualify. We saw maybe 2 units that didn't live here full time, plus us made 3. The park is more than half full with full time live in units. Only one restroom/shower house and it is by the pool. If you need to use it, it's quite a walk. Not a "bad" park but I wouldn't come back unless it is for the convenience of being right off the interstate.

Nice COE park, we stayed in the new section based on previous reviews. Very Nice. Level and long pads with many pull through and shade. Showers could have been better. The drain is only on the shower side but water goes around the small wall to the dressing side with no drain there so it puddles. COE loves their push button water showers, but its always a pain to push the button every 15 seconds or so. Saves water I assume. Great price with the National Parks card for seniors. We would stay here and plan on it again.

This is our 3rd time here. I really like this park, but now that we have seen many others around the country, my opinion is slightly different than previous stays. The park is great. Pricing is a little high compared to others at the same price point. If we didn't have a National Parks card we probably wouldn't stay here for full price. Pricing above reflects 50% discount. Their shower/bathrooms are their downfall, very dirty and poorly kept up. Shower curtains are ripped off most of the hooks, I don't think anyone takes a cleaner to the facilities other than to pressure wash the walls and floor. It doesn't cut the grime in the bowls or sink. there is no privacy between the showers and stalls. A quick shower curtain in the doorway would take care of that. We even put one in last year when we stayed but they are now gone. There are rips in the plastic protection to the outside so during cold times its freezing in the shower. Many campgrounds for the same price have at least heated/cooled facilities and a cleaner taken to the bowl/sink on occasion. They could do better.

Outstanding park; we have never had a bad county run park. Many showers and restrooms. Clean park, nice people. Will definitely come back when we can stay longer.

I like this campground. We have stayed here a couple of times. Our rate based on senior national parks card discount of 50%. Showers/restrooms could be a little better but they are tolerable. Several nature trails to walk. You can only stay for 2 weeks, but can request a 2 week extension at the COE office near by. We were in town for our grandchildren's school activities and were granted the extension. Weekends were typically busy.

Nice City Park. Gravel pad. Picnic table, fire ring, grill on each site on cement pad. Restrooms and shower is across the street. Large city park. Many shelters to rent and a rent-able party room if you were to have a large event. Boat ramp available. Our rate is senior discount.
