Great place. Yes, one day for a little while we smelled "cattle". We stayed for 5 days and only had a faint smell 1 day. The only draw back is lack of shade but this isn't the only place we have stayed that had no shade. Employees are great. They cook pizza and wings which was great for the first night we arrived. Wonderful large sites. Cement pads. Pool was clean and fine. We enjoyed the visit and would gladly come back again. We visited the Palo Duro Canyon while we were here which is a must see. Also convenient drive to Lubbock.

Convenient to local attractions. Pikes Peak a nice day trip to include Garden of the Gods. Spent one day in Pueblo at the river walk, Center for American Values (a must see) and general walking the downtown shops. Phanton Canyon road was an interesting day trip. Pull thru lots are gravel and very level. The owners are very nice and accommodating. The pool isn't swim worthy yet but they are working on it. Would definitely stay again.

Very nice staff. Next to busy train tracks. Only an issue if the conductor feels the need to blow the whistle and you don't have white noise. Gravel sites, very level.

Very nice staff. Grass sites, mostly level. Right next door to Walmart; you can walk to it. Train traffic could be an issue if you don't have white noise.

Rate reflects 50 amp daily rate for Thousand Trails members. The pool is great. The pool shower house is the best in the park. The other restroom shower facilities are OK. Cleaner than some of the other TT parks we have been in. The camp sites vary in acceptability. Most are level and many are shady. We stayed in the 50 amp line in the A section (L group). From here we are close to the pool but a mile from the activity center. There is no lake. It's dried up. The activity center is "OK". San Antonio is a hour away. There is a little grocery store not far away. Otherwise its about 15-20 minutes to "stores". We would come back.

"Clean" restrooms and showers is a relative term. In several of the bath houses June bugs were very prevalent. They did sweep them up a couple times during our 11 day visit. They weren't horrible but they could have been better. Our rate reflects having to pay for 50 amp service. Some Thousand Trails camps charge for it, some don't. They had several activities, some for kids and some for adults. Lots were somewhat level. Thousand Trails says they are making improvements to this park. There was evidence of gravel that will be put down soon. Don't know if it was all for roads or if they would also try to level out unit parking areas. They have several new cabins. Good access to the lake for boating activities. We would come back.

Rate based on TT membership. Lovely campground but many of the sites are sold to annuals. We secured one of the 2 pull thru sites. Very well kept up sites. For as many annuals that live there it doesn't have a "trailer park" look or feel. We would be back again in hopes that there would be availability.

Rate reflects Thousand Trails. The campground says they have 50amp but there are only about 4 of them. They say they have sewer but again its only about 4 of them. They do have 2 dump sites, one per section. Even though they say they have almost 300 sites, most of them are not usable for anything other than a pop up or tent. We were very disappointed with this campground in the Thousand Trails portfolio. To find an appropriate site its best to stop after you check in and walk the campground. Both areas. Many of the sites are very skinny with a drop off on one or both sides. There are some nice sites. We found one on the lake that was very nice. The roads are terrible which is another reason to walk the campground first to find you site. And their idea of pull thru sites is also just minimal. I would have to be pretty desperate to stay here again.

Rate reflects Good Sam discount. Park takes CASH only even though their website shows credit cards. No one in the office until 2pm in the afternoon but that isn't a deal breaker. Bathhouse is very clean. Sites are gravel but very level. Next to the interstate but air-conditioning or a white noise takes care of that. Good place for overnight stop.

Rate reflects weekly rate. We enjoyed this campground. The showers and stalls are a little "skinny" but clean. Only 1 bath house for the entire park and could be a hike from some of the spots if you walk. We were right on the river which was nice but I would imagine might have some mosquito issues. We had some but they were controlled by spray. Very family friendly.

Rate reflects TT zone pass. Only 3 lots with 50amps and those are taken by annual users. We liked this park. Didn't know what to expect based on previous comments but we thought the campgrounds were well maintained. There is a incline in the back of C loop but it isn't necessary to go there if you don't want to. We stayed in A loop. Everyone was very nice. There are several annual renters but everything was well kept. We enjoyed our stay and will come again.

Rate reflects TT rate. Not quite sure what constitutes a "Resort" they don't have anything that most other parks have. Their sauna doesn't work and didn't the last time we were here a year or so ago. The hot tub doesn't work and didn't last time. They do have a work out room. WIFI is only available in the work out room area. Bath house up front is outdated but the one in the back is worse. Good place to spend a couple of days to see the sites but wouldn't spend a long time here. Went to see Mammoth Cave after passing the signs on the highway for MANY years. Worth the visit. Especially if you have a National parks pass.

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.
