We decided to give this park a try, since Good Sam had rated it as a 10-10-10. Park was very attractive as we entered--cute water slide area for kids, nice beach and swim area. Office was very nice, and the young lady there was super nice. She told us to go find a spot we liked and come back to register. When I asked her about the Wi-Fi, she hesitated and said it wasn't very good around the cabin area. As we went up the hill to the campground, we realized that there was very few level sites. The pull through sites were very long, but terribly unlevel--motorhomes had their front wheel jacked up off the ground. We tried a couple, couldn't get anywhere close to level. When we got out in the tall grass, we found two with missing sewer caps and filth up at the top of the pipe. One row along the edge close to the lake was level, though very short--not long enough for your toad, but you could park it on the patio. Again we got out and looked for the sewer connection, scraping through the grass, but we couldn't find a sewer. There were no maintenance people anywhere in sight. We finally left and will not be back.
This is a lovely campground, and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We wished we had paid more and taken a waterfront site and will the next time we come. Not all sites in the Tall Timbers area are level, so you need to look around. We had two issues that kept us from rating the park a 10. One was the garbage dumpster--only one area for the entire park, and it was down by the office and not at all convenient when leaving the park. It was attractively screened, and I'm sure it was for appearances. Most KOAs we've stayed in have had on site pick up, and there seemed to be lots of people riding around on golf carts who could have picked up trash. Another was the TV cable/satellite. We have two non digital TVs with converter boxes which have worked with the cable in every resort/campground where we have stayed. Not at this one. The Workkamper who came promptly to help us when we called the office said that their system was screwy, and we would have to use their box, which he brought, but since our TV was built into the wall, he couldn't get into it to plug in without taking all our wiring apart. We felt this was not in keeping with the otherwise flawless operation of this park. We definitely will come back here, but after 4 days in the national forest, we were ready for some good TV. Had no problems with ants as others mentioned. With the palm trees and huge lake, you do feel as if you are down on the gulf.
This is one of the prettiest campgrounds in Colorado that we have found. Shade trees, green grass, flowers, and awesome views are all over the park. Sites are very close together, however, and many of them do have your neighbor's sewer in your sitting area. You are not allowed to put anything on the grass, but at the back of each site, there is a bare ground area where you can put out a mat and sit, which works well if you are on the back row, because that's where the views are. The electrical boxes stick up, and our neighbor had less than 2 inches between his slide and the box. When we checked in, we were told that we probably wouldn't get the Internet on the back row, but we did get it, although it was slow. Good antenna TV on several channels. We may not come back here because of the road situation. The park is at the end of a short dead end road. For some reason, they have installed two horrible speed bumps which absolutely rattle your coach. Then we discovered that to get to your site, you have to go over two drainage ditches that are just about as bad. Even though we crept over these barriers, we just jolted everything in our coach. Getting out of the park is just as bad. In order to protect the sprinkler system, which has a head right at the street edge of every site, the owner has installed a sturdy post on each site. In order to clear that, it is necessary to swing wide as you exit your site. Just be careful. It is a lovely park.
We stayed 3 weeks at this park, so we did get 3 free nights. Enjoyed our stay very much. Road noise is very minor if you are down on the lower part of the park. Some of the sites are very close together, particularly if you have a river site. We prefer to not have a site right on the river, as they are very tight to get into and quite close together. We were across the road and had a very nice site. Tengo Internet was down completely for several days when we arrived. At best it was slow most of the time and almost unusable at night when everyone returned to the park. There was only one tower, and I believe that this is the reason so many parks have bad service with Tengo. Staff was super. As stated by others, TV was not too good, mostly cooking shows and PBS which showed the same thing over and over. We could get ABC also. Not much for kids to do, other than ride bikes. No exercise facilities, but the city has a very nice Aquatic Center where you can swim for a fee. Great place for a base camp to explore the many beautiful places nearby. We have been here several times before and plan to be back.
Price is with Good Sam discount. We prefer this older, well-kept park when traveling through Wichita Falls. Park has very long, level, shady gravel sites--no need to unhook. Roads are paved and probably could use a little repair, but they are fine to drive on--no big holes, etc. Cute doggy park area. Pool and everything else was immaculately clean. When we checked in, the young lady at the desk told us that the Tengo Internet was not very good, but it worked just fine for us. Excellent cable TV with nearly 100 channels. Little lake on grounds has walking area around, but there is not much for children to do--mostly a senior citizens park. A permanent resident area is at the back of the park; it also is clean and neat. This is our pick of the parks in Witchita Falls. We will stay here again.
Small nice campground with spectacular views as others have said. Cool and windy at the top of the pass. Clean and neat with level sites. We opted for a pull through but recommend you call ahead to be sure there is a place for you. There was a bad storm, and people were pulling in looking for a place to get in out of it. Some just stopped and stayed in the campground road for the night. Price reflects a millitary discount. Staff friendly and helpful. Escort to site. Internet worked pretty well. Antenna TV worked well also. We have stayed here before and will do so again.
We always stay here when coming through Amarillo. It is an older park, but clean and well maintained. Pool is clean, and it is easy to fill a motorhome with propane here. Sites are long (no need to disconnect) and level with shade. As mentioned, several sites have nice fenced dog yards. There is some highway noise, but we run our fan at night. Campgrounds are on a flight path, but the planes stop by 10:00 PM and don't start until later in the morning. The owners have been so nice to us for years and are always super about saving a place for us if we are running late--it just takes a phone call. Roads and sites are gravel and could use a little work, but all in all we love this campground.
This park does not fit my definition of a resort. After we drove in, we saw that the entire park was a mud hole with deep ruts where people had been stuck. Sites had gravel on them, but the roads were just red dirt. The office looked dark, but I went up there. The owner was sitting in the dark in what didn't look like a very inviting office--chairs stacked around, etc. We paid the Good Sam rate, and the owner told me that the Internet probably wouldn't work, and he was right. When we arrived, there were only two sites available, but we found one that was level. We prayed that it wouldn't rain during the night, and the owner showed us on the map of the campground how to pull around and get back on the highway without getting stuck. He was very nice and helpful. As others have mentioned, the water connection is down on the ground, making it necessary to get on your knees to connect. We do not plan to come back.
This is a lovely park. Everything worked well, even the Tengo Internet. Cable was wonderful with 65 channels. The price seemed a bit high, and they offered no discounts, but the young lady who took my reservation told me that she couldn't guarantee a 50 amp hook up unless we had a premium site. It seems the standard sites are shared hook ups with only one 50 amp between the two. So if someone has already taken the 50 amp connection, only a 30 amp is available. One reason we came here was because this is the only park anywhere around that has cable, and after a month of nothing but ABC with its reality shows, PBS, which shows the same thing over and over, cooking channel, and Spanish channels, we were ready for something else when we came in at night after sight seeing all day. Park was immaculately clean, and we enjoyed our stay. Will definitely come back.
Many improvements need to be made. Wi-Fi was terrible; we were given a sheet with nearly 200 cable stations; we only could get 20, which were almost all local, except we got San Antonio! A lot more gravel needs to be spread around on roads and around hook ups. It rained during the night, and it was necessary to stand in water to disconnect from utilities. Sewer overflowed when we tried to dump, and as we left, we saw many puddles with soapy water on the road; made us wonder if other sewers were also overflowing. Lots of noise from interstate unless you were running air conditioning. Staff was friendly and helpful. We pulled in here because the wind was so bad. It was an OK place to overnight.
Kids would probably love this park. We stopped overnight because we were tired and needed to stop. Sites were not designed for big rigs; we are 34 ft with a tow car, and we were really overlapping into the next site. Fortunately the park wasn't crowded. Very quiet; kind of like being in another world. No wi-fi but really good antenna TV. Sites are very narrow; we drove off into the sand and fortunately did not get stuck. Staff extremely nice and helpful. Would stay here again if we had to while traveling though west TX, but it's really not big rig friendly.
This is a new park, formerly Lakeside but now expanded. Beautifully landscaped, excellent restrooms, showers, and laundry. Friendly staff. Pull throughs are level but very narrow; you can get a double wide back in with a picnic table for $10 more daily. Not enough room for chairs to sit out beside your coach but sites are very long, so there is room in front or back. All hook ups excellent. Good cable; terrible wi-fi. I asked at the desk where the router was so that we could aim our signal extender. The man and lady in the office looked at each other and said, "What's a router?" One reason we selected this park was because of a brochure I picked up at the NM Welcome Center. It stated that this park had an indoor swimming pool and exercise facility completed in 2012. When we arrived, we learned that this has not even been started yet; there is a big blank place in the sand where it's going to be. Yet, they are advertising something that doesn't exist. When I asked about the pool, I was told that I could swim across the street at the Inn in the outdoor pool when it opened in about another month. Well, I won't be there then. This park is off the beaten path; you have to be going to Elephant Butte to go there, so we probably won't be back since we have now been there. It is country quiet at night, which we appreciated. It is by far the nicest park if you are going to Elephant Butte, and we would certainly stay again if in the area.
Good gravel sites up on a hill overlooking city. One of the best wi-fi's we have ever had with routers around campground. Excellent cable also. Friendly staff. There was also a high speed computer available to use while doing laundry. Book exchange in laundry. Convenient to interstates and other areas. Country quiet at night--no planes, trains, or highway noise. Sites were adequate but narrow. We could not put our awning out if the adjoining site was in use, but the winds are so bad, we couldn't put the awning out anyway. No tables at sites, but a covered area was provided with plenty of picnic tables and a gas grill to use. There are a couple of sites with a cabana type arrangement; grills included. I recommend you save your money and just take one of the pull throughs--the back in view sites also cost more. We had nice views from our pull through--when the dust would let us see the mountains. We enjoyed our stay very much and will definitely stay here again if in the area.
Nice, paved campground. Friendly staff. Cable excellent; wi-fi pretty slow. Excellent restrooms, showers, and laundry. Sites must have been designed by a non camper (aren't they all). When you stepped out of your RV, in order to stay on the concrete you had to almost walk sideways to get to your car. There was a paved patio at each site, but each site had a metal umbrella over the little table provided, which meant you could not pull up to get your awning out. Since it rained buckets while we were there, we would have liked to have our awning out to avoid getting drenched while entering and leaving the coach. However, the winds were too high for the awning anyway. We will stay here again.
We have stayed here before, and it is a very nice campground. We were given a free night; a special was running through April for 2 nights get the 3rd free. I can see why they try to get people to stay in April--the weather was terrible. We stayed 4 days due to high winds, snow, sleet, rain, dust storms, etc. Cable was excellent; wi-fi was pretty good. Staff is very friendly. Free continental breakfast included, as well as coffee, hot chocolate, etc. all day. Convenient to Camping World and other attractions. We definitely would stay here again.
Very nice campground. We had a site right down on the river, which was nice; deer out grazing in early morning right in front of us. We had our back to the highway, which probably helped, but the highway noise did not bother us. No trash pickup at site, and we only saw one dumpster. We had a minor medical emergency, and there is an excellent 24/7 facility about a mile down the road; it is a branch of St. David's Hospital of Austin. The entrance comes up quickly; if you miss it, you have to go under the highway and make a u-turn through a couple of lights. That was the way we left the park. If you take the exit (which is on a different side from the entrance), to travel east, you have a pretty good slope to go over. After looking at it, we were concerned that we might drag, so we opted to take the first right turn, instead of the second as we left the park, and make the u turn, going around to miss that bump. We enjoyed our stay very much and plan to return.
Wonderful park; so great to have paved, level sites. Staff was friendly. There appears to be many long time residents. Wi-fi and cable was good. Laundry was excellent with chairs and TV. Easy fill on propane for motorhome. Pool was closed for season; no exercise facility. Very quiet at night but really powerful lights outside, which made it light in your coach. Will definitely come back when in the area.
Outstanding park! Rate reflects winter prices for a lakeside site, but we got a free night because we stayed a week. Restrooms/showers were super; wi-fi and cable were good. Pool was lovely and heated; even though it was Oct. it was very nice to swim in. Great fitness room. Trash pickup twice daily at your site. My only suggestion would be to have some rolling carts in the laundry to move clothes from washer to dryer. This is one of our favorite parks, and we plan to come back. Country-like setting with no noise at night (no trains) but close to restaurants and town.
Beautiful park. Our site was 43, very unlevel. Blocks were under jacks and wheels, and our front wheels were still off the ground. We had a beautiful view of the lake and a very nice sitting area. The steam plant across the lake didn't bother us at all. Everyone was friendly and having a good time. We loved having roads and sites paved. Antenna TV was good, but no wi-fi anywhere in the park. We enjoyed the area and plan to come back but hope to have a different site that is a little more level.
When we arrived at the park, the beautiful foliage was almost breathtaking. I chose a 50 amp site because I thought it was surely designed for a big motorhome and would be fairly level. Wrong! Our site was 70 feet long, and if we had pulled forward about 35 feet, we might have been a little more level, but we backed up to be near the connections. We had blocks under the jacks, the wheels, and our front wheels were still off the ground, which we do not like. When sites are being redone, as these have been fairly recently, how much trouble is it with a bulldozer in there to level the sites? The lodge was extremely nice with beautiful views and a good restaurant. They offered a computer room with fast wi-fi. The lodge had a beautiful indoor pool and fitness center, which only hotel guests are allowed to use, even though I offered to pay. We enjoyed our stay and the beautiful scenery. Not sure whether we'll be back or not.
Outstanding family park! We got a free night because we stayed 5 nights. All reviews have pretty much covered everything. The pool was closed, but it looked very nice. So many activities for children! There were huge rains when we were there. It would help if a little more gravel could be spread; some of the cabins had loblollies around them, but the kids had a great time even though the Trail of Terror had to be cancelled because of the rain. That and the location of the trash were the only things that needed to be improved. We definitely want to come back. Everyone was extremely friendly. The Sunday morning breakfast was nice.
Very clean quiet park out in the country. Wi-Fi and cable were good. Showers were great; immaculately clean pool as was the whole campground. Super nice staff. 50 amp sites were not completely level but were certainly levelable. Great place to stay for visiting Craters of the Moon and EBR. We didn't see any cookies in the office as was mentioned previously, but we did enjoy the $1 ice cream cones at night. Would definitely stay here again if in the area. The other park in town also looked very nice.
We have stayed here 4 times; two were good experiences; two were not so good. This last time was not so good. When we came through in July, we had a wonderful site with super Wi-Fi; their cable though is very limited. When we came back through in August, we requested the same site but were told it was not available. The park was almost empty when we arrived; the site we wanted sat vacant for 2 days after we came. We requested a level site and got that, "Our sites are all level because they are paved." When I replied that we had just been in a paved park that was not all level, the Workkamper snippily told me that she had a level I could take out and check all the sites. We were assigned a site in the back of the park at the opposite end of where we wanted to be. The Wi-Fi was unusable it was so bad; another fellow on our row asked us if we could get anything; they couldn't get on line either. We stayed 3 days, and it never got any better. We love Ft. Collins and would have stayed longer if we had a good site. At $48 a night, we felt like we deserved better. When we complained, we got, "Have you called Tengo Net?" We tried that and got put on hold every time. This park has many amenities and lots for kids to do. The pizza that you can order to be delivered to your site is excellent, and we enjoyed that. We'll give it another try but won't go into the back part of the park any more.
Nice park; all roads and sites are paved, but be careful. The park has a lower level and upper level. We were assigned to the lower level, which seemed to be where most rigs were sent. We could not level without our wheels on one side being off the ground. We requested a change, and luckily we arrived early in the day when there were other sites available and moved to the upper level. As we walked around in the evening, we noticed wheels up off the ground on some of the RVs; we don't like that. The pull throughs are not really pull throughs. If you arrive first, you pull through, but you must disconnect your toad, or you will be over the line. If someone parks behind you, you can't hook up when you leave without pulling out, which kind of defeats the purpose of a pull through. Those behind must also disconnect and then back out. Excellent showers and laundry; free coffee, cocoa, tea, and cookies in office, as well as a newspaper. Friendly park and would definitely stay again.
Very nice staff; escort to site. Entire park is loose gravel which slides all around. Clean and attractive. Very quiet at night. No shade, and Boise was hot! Sites are very close together. The patio is not really wide enough for the picnic table, and there is a very narrow strip of grass beside patio. There is really no sitting room, but it was too hot to sit out anyway. Wi-Fi slow; good cable. Would probably come back again, especially if going to McCall, as it is right on the highway to McCall.
Staff was super nice and helpful. Park is very clean, as was the swimming pool. We stayed here going out and coming back. Roads and sites are loose gravel that makes lots of noise when people drive on it during the night; also the interstate and train noises make sleep difficult. This seems to be true of the campgrounds across Wyoming. Wi-Fi was so so; excellent cable TV with large number of channels. When we checked in, we requested a level site; the man who parked us stayed with us until we set up to be sure we weren't jacked up off the ground. He said he would find us another site if necessary, which we appreciated. Free coffee and cookies in office. If you are crossing Wyoming on I-80, we believe this is the best choice and would definitely stay again.
This park is OK for an overnight stop. Sites are not well kept and some are not very level. We had a 50 amp pull through and had to jack up so high that I was not able to get out of the coach, since I have a disability. Staff was nice and helpful. Wi-Fi was out due to storm; when it came on the next morning, it wasn't very good; the limited cable TV was very fuzzy. We stayed at this park in 2009, and I stepped in a hole outside the coach and broke my ankle, so I didn't mind not getting out this time. If you are traveling between Texas and Raton, this is the only game in town. We would stay again if we needed to, but it's not a first choice.
Outstanding park; we stayed 9 days and loved every minute of it. We were on one of the quads (they are not just for groups but for anyone) which was really lovely with lots of beautiful grass; flowers everywhere. Inside pool, sauna, hot tub, and lovely bathrooms were enjoyed as well as the excellent exercise equipment. Great laundry, Tengo Wi-Fi worked well most of the time, except it kept kicking us off, and we had to go to the office to get a new coupon. Great cable TV with almost 100 channels. Only negative would be the airport, but they didn't start flying until 6:30 a.m.; since we are early risers, it didn't bother us too much. It is next to the Smokejumpers Headquarters, and I think they were probably flying out to the terrible fires that were sweeping across areas down below Mc Call. Our first site was too unlevel and the patio was not designed for a motorhome. We requested a change; there was only one other site available, but fortunately it was super. The young man who parked us offered to find us some boards if needed, since we do not like to jack our wheels off the ground. This was typical of the whole staff, who worked the grounds all the time. We would definitely return.
This is an older but well kept park with mature shade trees all over the park. There is an older section with full timers in back in sites that does have some bumpy roads, but we stayed in the pull throughs and had a great site and wonderful shade. Wi-fi and cable were good. Free shuttle every half hour to Temple Square eliminates parking fees in downtown Salt Lake. Park is a little tricky to get into because of construction, but I got specific directions from staff, who were very helpful. Pool was not always as clean as I would have liked, but in all fairness there were gusty winds blowing trash into it daily, so I don't think it was the park's fault. We definitely would stay here again.
As others have stated, this park has many amenities. However, we differ a bit on some of them. This is a family friendly park, but all we wanted was a nice place to spend the night on our way home. The wi fi was just about the worst we've ever encountered, despite the fact that the park does have routers all around. We couldn't even get into our e mail; it was not because too many were on line. The park was less than 1/4 full. The trees that have been planted are in the back in areas. There didn't seem to be any in the pull through section. Wichita Falls is one of the hottest places in Texas. I would not stay here again in the summer. Restrooms and showers were outstanding. Be very careful when leaving if you are heading to 287 South; you come out on a one way road; either we missed a turn around or there was no sign. We had to cross a very bad gravel railroad crossing right in front of the park to get to our highway. As always in RV parks, there is a train crossing nearby. Since everything is paved, it was a great place to ride bikes; many families there having lots of fun. Two nice swimming pools.
Nice, clean park, close to Conroe but out in the country. Wi-Fi was OK, but TV was terrible. We thought that we would get some good stations, being so close to Houston, but the picture pixelated so badly we had difficulty watching it. Family oriented: kids all seemed to be having fun fishing in the ponds. Laundry was very small but there was no place to sit while waiting on your clothes. The one trash dumpster for the whole park was very inconveniently located behind the propane tank. Entrance to park was narrow and bumpy, but we were escorted to our site: which we appreciated. Everyone was friendly and we enjoyed our stay. It was nice to be out where there was no road noise.
Price reflects Good Sam discount. Great level concrete sites. Wi-Fi is better than the last time we were here; never could get our cable TV to work. We had just left Fredericksburg, and our cable was working beautifully. When we tried to hook up at Sunset Point (2 hours later), we got nothing. A man from the park came over and looked at it and said he knew nothing about electronics. My husband is extremely handy, and he worked and worked but it never gave us a picture, so we switched to antenna and were able to get Austin stations. This was the most expensive park we stayed in for a month long RV trip, and it's disappointing when things don't work. One reason we like to come here is for the exercise facilities; two treadmills had "Out of Order" signs on them, and there was no stationary bike. Based on a previous review about the grill on the luxury site, it sounds as if things may be going downhill here. Laundry is clean but very small--2 washers, 2 dryers, bench outside to sit on and also nice air conditioned rec room next door with exercise equipment (not working) and paperback library. We stayed 2 nights; would have stayed longer if things had worked. We love to come to this park and will give it another try. If you are coming here, be sure to call ahead; the gates are locked at 4:00 p.m., which seemed awfully early to us. Also, the office is open 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Don't be turned off by the name of this park; it is an outstanding campground. Very clean, nicely landscaped; good Wi-Fi and cable. Everything worked very well. Nice pool, but no exercise facilities. All sites level and concrete. Trash pickup at site daily. Very convenient for Creole Nature Trail and Lake Charles. Pretty little lake in the center of the park which has a lighted fountain at night. We enjoyed our stay very much and plan to come back.
Outstanding campground; the only thing that would make it perfect would be to have exercise facilities and a pool. More of a senior citizens park; kids would not have much to do; however because of its central location, most people are out in town much of the time. Wonderful laundry and bath/shower facilities. Sites are gravel, but a small crushed type that is easy to walk on. Staff friendly and helpful. Concrete patios are at ground level, so they don't scrape your tires or jam your electric step. We love this place and will definitely be back.
Outstanding campground! It has everything; however many of the attractions were not open yet due to season. It is a little tricky to find; no highway signs, and as you turn at the campground, it almost appears that you are going down a dead end road. It seems that they are building a new entrance closer to the main road. Wi-Fi and cable were excellent. Great exercise room, which is becoming important to us as we travel all day. We definitely will be back.
Rate reflects weekly rate, which owner gave us, even though we wanted four nights; said it would be the same, which we appreciated. Owners were very helpful and nice. This is a nice little park with a pretty lake, but one side of the lake backed up to a truck stop and U. S. 90. Loose gravel was difficult for me to walk on, since I am using a cane. Outstanding laundry with a number of nice washers and dryers, several large folding tables, TV, and paperback library. No cable, and our reception was terrible. We could not sit outside because the mosquitoes were so bad. We enjoyed out stay but are doubtful that we will come back due to the terrible condition of U.S. 90 coming out of Lafayette. It was a real bone shaker, and we don't want to subject our RV to such punishment again.
Excellent park. Long, level concrete sites, good hook ups, nicely landscaped, and just about the friendliest folks we've ever met running the park. No cable TV but good antenna reception. Wi fi ok. Lots of trails for walking and biking. Very nice playground for young children, but teens might be bored unless they like to fish. There is even a new free washer dryer for campers to use. Grocery store in town is nice but there is only one cafe in town, and it's not open for breakfast. Only down side was a terrible ant problem, which the park was spraying for every day we were there, but we did leave with an infestation in our RV. We loved the park and will definitely be back.
Rate reflects discount and back in site; pull throughs are $5 more. Wonderful campground with lovely landscaping and many amenities. Paved level sites and roads. A little pricier than many campgrounds, but this was off set by the free shuttle to First Monday, which runs every half hour until night, and a free barbecue dinner on Saturday night with entertainment. Free Wi-Fi available at office, but not at site. More cable channels than when we stopped here last year. We will definitely come back again.
Very nice park with outstanding showers. Entrance is a little tricky, so be sure to get directions. Waterfront is a little misleading. There is a very small area on an inlet of Lake Hamilton, not enough to walk around. Park and sites were loose gravel, which I found difficult to walk on with knee problems. Wi-Fi good. Cable somewhat limited: no business channel, which we miss. Very quiet and squeaky clean. Easy access for filling a motorhome with propane. Staff very nice, offering any help if needed. Small exercise room. Sites are not really long, but there is ample parking beside your rig for your tow vehicle. Convenient location. Would definitely stay here again.
This is a very nice campground. Wi-Fi was good; even though there was no cable, we had good TV reception. Views from back in sites are really nice. We requested a level site and were given a back in site at the back of the park. Very nice. Some of the pull throughs didn't look as level, but the park was very crowded for the week end with some rallies here. The only thing I wish they had was concrete sites as I have difficulty walking on gravel. Park is on a trolley stop, but at $5 each, I'm not sure it wouldn't be better to pay $5 to park downtown. Office staff friendly and helpful, going out of their way to assist those having trouble, such as towing a car for our neighbors when their tow car had problems. It's always nice when someone on staff is here to help out. Park is easy to find because of the big sign on the highway advertising the Passion Play, which is the road for the park. There is a large Exxon at the turn, which has lots of room for a gasoline RV with a tow car connected to it; we always appreciate that. We would stay here again if in the area.
If you like long, level concrete sites, a friendly accommodating staff that goes out of their way to help campers, lightning fast internet, 70 channel cable TV, excellent connections, spacious clean laundry and showers, easy access without getting into Branson traffic snarls, then this is the place. We came for four days and stayed 15. Escort to your site to help you park in the correct place for slides and connections. When I mentioned that my husband was having back problems, they offered to park our rig for us, which we didn't need. We were given a phone number and told it would be answered 24/7 by a live person, not a recording, if we needed anything. There is a Mexican restaurant on site, which also serves breakfast. Park is located on one of the by pass roads around Branson; we were close to the road but heard no noise at night. There is a free shuttle (can you believe that!) to take you to shows if we don't want to drive. Branson has many steep grades; this one does not require any climbs other than mildly twisting roads to get to. Always call the office and ask for directions for the best way to get to your park without getting into traffic. This park is located almost across from the state park. Signs in town are very good at directions to the state park, so we used those signs at night to help us get back to our campground until we were more familiar with Branson. Check in office everyday because they get half price tickets for many shows. We had a wonderful stay here and look forward to coming back.
We have camped here many times through the years as an overnight stop only. We were dismayed to learn that the rate had gone up almost $10 per night. Supposedly "free Wi-Fi" had been added. The Wi-Fi was terrible; we could not get on at all, until the next morning when all the permanent residents had gone to work, and then it was agonizingly slow. Supposedly the new owner is making improvements. What they were we couldn't tell. It is still just a gravel parking lot right on the interstate. The lady in the office is very nice and apologized for the rate increase. On our instructions was a phone number to be called only in case of emergency with utilities. Quite a contrast to other parks we stayed in, who said to call if we needed anything. Sign on trash dumpster (one for whole park) said to carry your trash back to your rig if dumpster was full, which it was, so I did. We will look for another stopover when we are traveling across Arkansas. As far as being "kid friendly," I think there was a swing set, but the swimming pool has been filled in.
This park is conveniently located in the middle of town. We occasionally heard a little road noise at night but not enough to bother us. Sites are long and level. Restrooms and showers were immaculately clean, and the laundry was the best I've ever seen in a campground--spacious with many nice washers and dryers--baskets for transferring clothes and nice clean tables to fold laundry on. Best of all was the price--$1.25 for washing; .50 for 40 minutes of drying time. Can't beat that. I actually enjoyed doing my laundry there. Cable was good. Wi-Fi was a bit slow and sort of faded out one day. Every site had at least one tree; many had two. They were trimmed up high so as not to cause a problem, so the shade was minimal but it gave a nice place to sit out. No exercise equipment, which we missed. We will definitely stay here again.
A wonderful park with great lake views. Sites are long, paved, and level. Yes, there were deer droppings on the grass, but hey! you're in the hill country. It would be impossible to clean them up every day. Cable was good, which had been added since our last trip. Wi-Fi was slow and faded in and out. Friendly people and immaculately clean. I don't like the attitude about the ten year limit on your RV. Exceptions are made, because I saw a Blue Bird rally there with some oldies. Limited exercise equipment, just a treadmill and recumbent bicycle. We definitely will be back.
Outstanding RV park. Yes, it is close to I-10 but we really didn't hear the noise. It certainly didn't interfere with sleep, and I am a light sleeper. Internet was strong and fast. Cable was good except it went out while we were there, through no fault of the campground. Outstanding exercise facility with lovely view while exercising--two treadmills, two bicycles, elliptical, and 2 universal gyms. Sites were very long, level, and paved. Beautifully landscaped with many activities. Only thing we would add would be trees. Most campsites had at least one planted, but they were mostly small and not positioned to give any shade to the RV, making it hot during the day. We definitely plan to stay here again.
Great place to just relax and fish. Otherwise it is very far out with nothing do do. No restaurants or shopping within 25 miles. Laundry is good. Park has been restored from a hurricane. Concrete pads are nice but interior roads could use some work with lots of annoying speed bumps: why I don't know. I have never seen an RVer speeding through a campground, especially one with a locked gate where you can't get in. Be sure to call ahead to get the gate code, as the office tends to be closed at times when it is supposed to be open. Sites are close together; our awning was over our neighbor's sewer, and we were on Row A, which is probably the best row. We would probably come back if in the area.
Outstanding park for adults. Absolutely nothing for kids to do however. No pool or playground, which we didn't mind. Concrete streets and pads with no annoying speed bumps. Everything was immaculate. Good WiFi and cable TV. Staff friendly and helpful. Would definitely come back again.
A lovely park with all the amenities. We were there in the off season, and everyone was spaced out with several sites in between all campers, so we were not crowded at all. Everything was immaculate. The laundry is expensive, so try to wash ahead of time. Our only complaint was that the sites were covered with large white gravel, which was very attractive, but we both have bad knees, and walking even from the car to our rig was uncomfortable. Park has several of those annoying speed bumps which rattle your coach. We definitely would stay here again.
Lovely park with many amenities. Our only complaint was about the site pads themselves. Sites had plenty of space, but the pads were extremely narrow: just the width of your tires. Obviously they were not made for motorhomes with basement storage. As you backed in, there was a raised patio on the right, so you had to be careful about scraping tires. On the left the hookups were placed so that in many instances, it was not possible to open basement storage doors. After carefully backing in, we discovered we could not open the compartment with our sewer hose and had to pull forward closer to the street. There are a number of new large pull through sites in the front, in full sun which would be better for larger rigs. Sites in the shady area of the park seemed to be better suited for 5th wheels. Just be very careful about which site you select. Also the park is full of those annoying speed bumps which rattle your whole coach, even when creeping over them. We would come back again if in the area but would probably try to find a long pull through site. Deluxe sites are $5.00 per day more; I don't know how much the premium sites are, but none of them has a view of the river.
A lovely park, if you can get a place down across from the river. Most of the sites backed up to the river are short; only a few can accommodate bigger rigs. We have camped here several times up on top, which is easier to get into but right on U.S. 50, so it can be noisy. Everyone is very friendly but the majority of the park is filled with those who stay most of the summer and reserve their sites from year to year. Of course this means that the choice sites are taken. No digital TV but the analog works, depending on which end of the park you're in. We will stay here again.
We've been staying here since the 1970s and will continue to come back. Be sure to have a reservation in August for Boom Days week end and the bike race the following week end. Some of the sites have concrete runners; some do not. There was rain this year and Site 31 has a terrible mud hole, as well as others. Some of the sites have tree branches which might interfere with awnings--be sure awnings are tied down. We have seen them ripped off here; it can get quite windy. No Wi-Fi but high speed DSL in the rec room worked very well, and there were several desks to use. Laundry is a bit pricey, and the baskets to move clothes over to the table for folding have been removed. No TV at all--we used to have TV there before the digital conversion, and we were told there was no TV. We later went to another campground in the area where we were told to turn off our converter box to pick up analog (we're supposed to have both on our boxes but it only worked with the box off). We wondered if Sugar Loafin might have been on analog. The grounds are not quite as manicured as they once were here, but the scenery is still gorgeous. A word of caution--many people have breathing problems here since the altitude is at 10,000 feet. Some people get a prescription from their doctor for oxygen; the company will bring it out to the campground for you to use at night in order to sleep. The ice cream social at night is a bargain, with all you can eat for $1.50. Many beautiful drives and hikes are close by, but this campground doesn't have a lot for kids to do--just a playground.
We got the last site available for a busy Saturday night, it was the overflow site up against the bathhouse but with FHU and 50 amps. Yes, it was all gravel but very nice, immaculately clean. Friendly staff and folks. I do not like pay showers, but we used our own. However, for the people in the lower campground with grass, trees and stream there were only portal potties. They had to walk up the hill to get to the really beautiful bathhouse. What really impressed us about this place was that two rigs came in with no place to go on a Saturday night, so the staff parked them in a grassy field and ran extension cords so that the people could have electricity overnight, instead of just turning them away. This gave us a warm feeling about the place. No cable but there was a sign in the office that there was no digital TV in the area. We turned our converter box off, and had good network TV. We will definitely return.
Wonderful family oriented park with tons of things for kids to do. No reservations are taken and no money paid up front. You find a site and stay as long as you want, paying when you leave. Wonderful food, which you can charge to your site. Sites are very close together, our slide was almost touching the slide beside us and we couldn't put our awning out until the people on the other side left. It rained quite a bit and some of the sites were real mud holes, particularly in the wooded areas, which have 30 amps. Cable TV is available only in a part of the park, and it really isn't too good. Wi-Fi can be used at the lodge. It can be difficult to find a site with 30 amps, most of the open meadow area with cable is only 20 amps, which is OK if you don't need AC and are very careful about what you are running. There are many 3rd generation campers here, lots of grandparents bringing grand kids. Entertainment most nights, usually country and western. Gorgeous scenery. We will definitely come back.
Very nice shady park with level sites. They watered the gravel roads down each night to keep the dust down, and we appreciated that. We stayed 5 days, using the park as base camp for Rocky Mt. Natl. Park. Very crowded on week ends, as lots of locals come out from Denver. Wi Fi was slow; cable TV was terrible and could hardly be watched until about 9:30 at night when it suddenly cleared up for a while. We had no sound on many of the channels. We reported it to office for 3 days. Finally someone came out and said it was fine, that it was our cable at fault. Gee, what a surprise since our cable worked fine at the park before and also the park we went to afterward. Laundry machines were good, but the room was so narrow that there was only room for one person at a time. If someone was unloading the dryer, you had to ask them to step outside in order to get to the washers. Despite this, we enjoyed our stay and would stay here again.
A great place for overnight. Long, level sites, clean, well kept. Breakfast for $1. Cable TV had good picture, but only 5 channels, none of them network. Wi Fi available as pay. Price reflects Good Sam discount and 30 amp. Have stayed here before and will stay again. Park is very close to railroad, and there is horn blowing from that. We ran our fan all night and did not hear anything, but it started up about 6 the next morning.
Family oriented park with lots of activities. Long, level sites but dusty roads with some spots in need of repair. Tight entrance gate with several annoying speed bumps, which jar your rig even though you creep over. Great laundry and exercise room. Cable TV had only a few channels; Wi Fi was very erratic, sometimes fast, sometimes agonizingly slow. We arrived early a little before 10:00 on Saturday morning as a courtesy to the campground where we had been, which was totally booked for the weekend. When we checked in, I was surprised when told my total was $45, since my deposit had been for $39. Going to our campsite, I looked at the charge and found we had been charged $5.00 for early arrival; no mention had been made of this. The Work Kamper who parked us told us that this charge was before 10:00 and to go up and ask that it be removed. At the office the Work Kamper informed me that check in was 12:00 noon and that the computer automatically charged $5.00 before that. When I protested that we had not been told this, he said that if we checked into a hotel early, we would have a fee also. I asked for a refund and was told no, that required 48 hours notice. I responded that hotels didn't require 48 hours. His answer was that maybe we should just go to a hotel. (How's that for customer service!) Back at our campsite, we got on line, found the manager, and sent him an e-mail. The manager did refund our $5.00 since there was no notice of the fee either in the office or on their web site, and they would take steps to fix that. The manger told us that after 10:30 they didn't usually charge. We had been told that the computer automatically did it before noon. So we were told 10:00, 10:30, and 12:00. Our advice is don't check in before noon. It's a very nice park but we probably will not stay here again.
One of the best! Outstanding park and facilities. Great cable TV (almost 100 channels) and WiFi. Trees, grass, long level sites, immaculately clean, friendly staff, exercise room, weekend social activities. A little highway noise, but we ran our fan (didn't need a.c.) to block it out. Would stay here again most definitely.
Very nice park, which honored our Golden Age Pass. It rained heavily when we arrived, so we switched sites twice in order to find one that didn't have a mud hole at the front door of the coach. Staff was helpful. We will think twice about coming back here because of the terrible condition of the U.S. highway from Jackson to Hattiesburg. Just be ready for some really bumpy riding, especially around Jackson. This certainly has nothing to do with the park, which is really nice.
Nice park with many amenities, but as other reviews have stated, very, very difficult to maneuver around in. We advise looking your site over carefully before trying to get around to it. We got the off season rate which made the park attractive, and it is conveniently located. Once we got backed into our site, finally, with the help of two maintenance men, we found that our patio pad was raised so that when we opened the door of our motorhome, our electric step jammed onto it. We had to back over the patio in order to get into the site. Then we discovered that we had two water connections on the other side which were raised. The site was so tight that we could not open our compartments because of the water connections sticking up, to get our connections out, so we had to pull forward again (after working on the electric step), empty our compartments of hoses, etc., then back in again. Staff was nice and helpful. Cable TV is not going to be available after June 1 we were told. Also there is only pay Wi-Fi available at your site. There was a room where you could use computers.
This is a lovely park with many activities for long term guests. We were disappointed to learn that Wi-Fi and cable TV both cost several dollars a day each, which added a lot to daily rate. We declined at first, but after making camp discovered that there was virtually no TV at all, so we added the cable. We thought we would go to the library to access our WiFi, which is what we usually do when none is available, but to our surprise the Kerrville Public Library had no WiFi. Sites are nice, but our front door opened right onto the road with a terrific view of the trash dumpsters. We would stay here again, but ask for another site in a more scenic area. Staff was friendly and helpful.
This is a lovely campground, but we really didn't understand why we were charged a "resort fee". Yes, the campground had Wi-Fi, cable TV, a pool, and a little lake, but so did other campgrounds where we stayed in a month long trip to Florida. We were only charged a resort fee in one park, but that park did have an exercise facility with two rooms of top exercise machines. We saw nothing here to make us feel we should be paying an extra fee. Also we were sitting outside early a.m. drinking coffee when suddenly the sprinklers came on and drenched us before we could get back into our rig. Would have appreciated being forewarned. Cable TV was only 16 channels; in other parks with cable we usually had nearly 100 channels. Since this is close to home, we probably won't stay here again, but it is lovely.
This park has good Wi-Fi and cable TV. Sites are long and gravel. If the park is crowded, sites would be very close together, but campers were scattered out when we were here. Staff was friendly and helpful. The downside was that the campground was lit up at night with stadium type lights. Since we don't have blackout curtains, the inside of our coach was like high noon. We wondered if there had been problems making this lighting necessary. If anyone has problems sleeping with light coming in, you might want to rethink staying here. We would stay here again.
Good basic campground for seeing St. Augustine. Convenient to interstate but in a country setting without noise. Sites were gravel, level, long, and shady, with plenty of room between sites. Not much here for children but we were glad we chose to be here, as we didn't have to negotiate crowded streets in St. Augustine to get to bridges for other campgrounds. Staff was friendly and helpful. We would stay here again if in the area.
Definitely pay the extra fee for an oceanfront site. Otherwise, you are just on a gravel parking lot. Staff was friendly. Wi-Fi was very poor on waterfront, but there was a station to use in rec room; also a Dell computer with good internet. This park is right on the road but we didn't hear any noise. Another camper told us that the campground had updated the electrical system since last year; we had no problem with any utilities. Power did go out for a short time, but it was area wide, not just the campground. Would stay here again.
This campground in one word--Wow! It is lovely with long,wide concrete sites, beautifully landscaped, immaculately clean. There is a shuttle to take you down to the private beach area. Would definitely stay here again, if we could get in. Don't go without a reservation.
This may be the nicest KOA we've ever stayed in. Has super staff. Even the morning newspaper was delivered to your site with free continental breakfast available. Would have made it a 10 but sites are not paved. They were fine for us, but we could see that there would be a problem with heavy rains. It is a bit of problem to get back onto I-10 but staff was helpful in showing us how to go down and make a U turn. Would definitely stay here again.
This is one of the best campgrounds we've ever stayed in. Easy to get into, paved roads and sites, which are double wide, beautifully landscaped and maintained. Staff is super friendly and helpful. Cable and Wi-Fi, which were free, worked well. You are allowed to wash your RV, which was necessary after an attack of love bugs as we traveled. We loved everything about this park and would definitely stay here again.
This park is a gem. I recommend that you get a paved site, which costs a little extra. The gravel ones are among the park models at the back, which are very nice with lots of flowers. Grounds are lovely. Maintenance people are constantly working. Staff was very helpful with everything. Wi-Fi worked great, as did all utilities. We stayed 4 days and enjoyed it very much. Would definitely return to this park. Everything was immaculately clean.
Full hook up area is up on the hill. You find your own site, which means if you pass a site up that you want, you can't go back because everything is one way. You have to go down a pretty good grade to get out of the campground and then climb back up again. Sites were not very level and some had pretty good drop offs. We looked at the grassy area, but could not see any defined campsites. You just seemed to drive across the grass and look for some hook ups. The equestrian area campground looked pretty good. Cafe was not open and didn't show any signs of being open. The area is very pretty, but we won't take our motorhome back up there again.
This is a lovely campground, still under construction, somewhat. We were expertly guided to our site and positioned so that slides, awnings, sewer, etc. were all in correct places. Wi-Fi was poor, and non-existent after 8:00 pm when the office closed. Although the campground seems to be off the beaten path, it is only a few blocks out of Bluffton, where there are numerous restaurants, etc. and a Wal-Mart super center. Staff was super; very helpful at showing us how to get into Fort Wayne the most direct way. Call for directions before arriving, as the KOA book doesn't quite get you there. If you follow the road you're on, you'll miss the campground. Very peaceful and quiet. Lovely pool and cabins. We would stay here again.
We found this to be a very nice, clean park: by far the best in town. It is very convenient to Zion and to drive to North Rim of Grand Canyon. The laundry was super nice, with a desk, telephone, and magazines to read. We got the last site available for the week end: a back-in right on the road. A large tree branch hung down over it. When I told the manager he needed to cut that branch off, he asked me how tall we were. When I said 12 ft 1 inch, he said the site could accommodate 12 ft 3 inches. Does that give a clue as to how low the branch was? We backed in and out very carefully with me outside with a walkie-talkie. Would stay here again, first making sure I reserved a pull-through site in advance.
We thoroughly enjoyed this park; it is at the end of town but very convenient if you are traveling west on I 40. Staff was super--extremely friendly and helpful. Sites are a bit close, but plenty of room for slides, awnings, etc. without being right up against your neighbor. There are some very big rig sites which are on a concrete parking lot. Since we weren't that big, we opted for the grass areas, which were quite nice. Free continental breakfast with free coffee throughout morning at office; free popcorn in afternoons--just other examples of the welcome that we felt when we arrived. Camping World just across interstate. We definitely will stay here again.
In a month long RV trip, this was the most expensive campground that we found. The wi fi was not strong, but ok. We felt for the price we should have had cable TV, but were told that it was an old park so there was no cable. Hmmm, if it was old, I guess it had wi fi and 50 amp hook ups in the old days. I don't think so. Very southwestern--no grass, no trees. Staff was very responsive when we had a "doggy deposit" left on our site when we arrived. We don't plan to stay at this park again.
While this is an older park without many amenities, it is a handy place for overnight stopovers when traveling out I-30. We have stayed here many times for a number of years. We know that we can always pull into a long, level site without disconnecting our tow vehicle and have 50 amp service. The highway noise has never bothered us; probably because we are running the air conditioning. If you pass this park up, it's a pretty good distance across Arkansas heading east until the next park. We definitely will stay here again.
We enjoyed our 4 day stay here very much. We requested a long, level pull through, which we got. We found the sites to be plenty wide--ample room for slides, awnings, etc. without being right up to your neighbor. Staff was very friendly. Pool looked nice; the water was fine, which I was apprehensive about after reading a previous review. Nice hiking trails through the woods. Wi-fi was good. Staff seemed to be on top of things, riding around park often. We would definitely stay here again.
This campground was nice and the grounds were lovely, however the sites were not very level. They took us to our site and we had no problems with the owner. Didn't have to disconnect for the night, which we appreciated. We could not get onto Wi-Fi and got no help from staff: the reply was "Ours works just fine here in the office." Our biggest complaint was the noise: from the train and interstate. It would be really bad in a pop-up without an air conditioner to drown out the noise. When you first exit the interstate, you wind around for several miles through a small town and think you are going out into the country. Actually you are circling around and are right beside the interstate, although there are trees blocking the views, just not the noise. The train is right across the street from the park entrance. We would probably stay here again for a overnighter.
We usually stay at this campground when we are in Nashville. Sites are level; staff is friendly and helpful, and the rates are lower than the other two campgrounds nearby. The pull-through sites are not 50amps, which I think is strange, for large motorhomes often need 50amps. However, we used 30amps in a back-in site the last couple of times and did fine. Very convenient if you need propane, as there is a dealership next door with a gate right into the campground. Also Camping World is very close. Entertainment on Wednesday and Sunday nights.
This is a lovely park with many amenities. However, when I called to make reservations, I asked if the sites were level. I was told all of them were level. On arrival, we noticed that most of the sites slanted slightly uphill, except for the ones that slanted downhill! Our site was a pull-through, and was certainly easy to level our rig on, however the back-in sites had a number of motorhomes with their front wheels up off the ground. When I asked why I was told the sites were all level: the answer was, "Our sites are all paved." So they are: but as we all know paved doesn't necessarily mean level. When a campground is rated 10 10 10 by Good Sam, I expect all the sites to be level. We would definitely stay here again, making sure we had a pull-through.
This was one of our favorite campgrounds. The grounds were very nice and the staff was friendly and helpful. Wi-FI was excellent: we were told that there were routers all over the park, and that every site would have good reception, which we did. The lay out of the park is a little strange: the big sites at the front of the park require you to back your rig back down the entrance road in order to get into them. No other way to access these from the registration area. We were glad we called ahead, as we were told there was an extra charge if you didn't have a reservation, which I dislike. We definitely would stay here again.
