This is a bare-bones, down-at-heels park for the dedicated fisherman. It is situated on the causeway between Aransas Pass and the Port Aransas Ferry and is right on Redfish Bay. Sites are available where you can back right into the water if you choose. Boat launch, dock, and lighted fishing pier. No showers or restrooms, so you must be self-contained. Very quiet. $250 mo plus electric makes it quite a bargain, and you can bring your own boat and park it here when you aren't fishing. I see the property is for sale, so the park may not be long for this world. Too bad; its kinda weird and grimy, but we enjoyed it.
Rate reflects TX State Parks Pass coupon rate for FHU site. Not in the top tier for a Texas State Park. Our FHU pull-through was described as "semi-level" and it was a lot more semi than level. Plenty long, however. Sites are rather close together and lacking in privacy for a state park. Lots of trees. Excellent Verizon signal, nil ATT. Showers were adequate. Tables & fire ring/grill at each site. Next time we're in the area, we'll stay at the nearby COE campground instead.
Rate reflects Access Pass discount. This is an outstanding COE campground on a beautiful lake, with excellent fishing and hundreds of waterfowl. The long back-in sites are gravel, most (but not all) are very level. Widely spaced campsites have ample privacy and some of the sites have spectacular lake views (be sure to cruise around first to locate the choicest sites). Showers are hot and the restrooms are clean. Covered tables, grills and fire rings, plenty of trees to cut the heat. This COE campground is off the beaten path, but still only 15 minutes to Ponca City. We would definitely stay here again.
City-owned campground on east side of Hoisington Recreational Center, at 1200 Susank Road Hoisington, KS 67544 This is a bare-bones over nighter. Brand new 30/50 amp power and water hookups are available at the eastern edge of the parking lot behind the Rec building. 12 pedestals are available (if every rig backed in) but as we were the only rig, we just pulled up to Space #1. Perfectly adequate and value priced.
What a gem! This pretty little city-owned campground is nestled among huge cottonwoods and abuts a park with walking trails and a small lake. Quiet and lightly used while we were here. Campsites are a bit haphazard, so you may need to cruise around once to identify an appropriate site. Several pull-thrus are long enough for big rigs. Limbs are kept trimmed, but turns may need some caution. Level gravel sites with 30 amps, shared water on some, dump on site, clean but rustic showers/restrooms. Good internet and phone signal on Verizon, poor on ATT. We'll certainly be back!
Rate reflects Access Pass discount. I don't believe we would have stayed here at $28 full price for electric only, plus the $15 entry fee. The National Park itself is spectacular, but the campground is minimalist. No campsites per se, just pull to the side of the campground road next to a electrical box. Covered tables and dumpsters but nothing else. Could not get a voice signal on either AT&T or Verizon - slow, slow Verizon Internet connection only with antenna and amplifier. Campground hosts are not exactly rude, but not friendly either. Lodge restaurant nearby was a major disappointment, but a good gift shop, if you feel money burning a hole in your pocket. Groceries available in Interior, about 2 miles away or in Wall, about 20 miles.
Clean and tidy park, some sites on the river. Very nice showers and reasonable laundry. Adequate gravel sites, mostly level. WiFi was too weak to work in the center of the park. We were able to get a slow signal via Verizon with a good booster/antenna. No ATT signal. Expensive for what you get, but typical for the Yellowstone area.
Expensive for no water, no showers, no sewer and no dump. Water faucet by the restrooms is non-threaded so you can't fill tanks without a water thief. Pretty, fairly shady and quiet, but even the pull-through sites are tight for a bigger rig. Very nice walking trail through the woods. Camp hosts are pleasant. Coin-op firewood dispenser, $4/bundle.
A nice, quiet military FamCamp. Level, gravel, pull-through sites, excellent WiFi, clean facilities, low cost laundry and a friendly, competent camp host. Good base exchange and commissary. Plenty of dining choices nearby, or more 10 miles in the city of Spokane.
Rate reflects weekday rate- weekends are $20 for retired military. Best view sites are #31(best) through #35. Only one pull-through site. Park is unkempt- grass needs mowing, potholes in interior roads, broken asphalt in paved sites. Many power pedestals are rusty and leaning over, some sites have no usable electricity. Laundry needs some TLC. Maybe summer will bring improvements. Staff is friendly and restaurant and fitness center on site are nice. Adequate Verizon signal for our air card. We enjoyed our stay and would come back.
Rate reflects off-season. Pretty, wooded park on the Deschutes River. Sites are flat and paved, but small and close together- better make a reservation if your rig is over 37'.(site #26 is the nicest- long and with river frontage). Park was very full on this Saturday in April. Slow but adequate AT&T air card signal, no service at all with Verizon.
As previously noted, this is primarily a long-term park, with only a handful of spaces for overnighters. Nonetheless, our site was level and the park was quiet and tidy (even if filled with older rigs). We used the laundry which was clean and reasonably priced. We got excellent aircard signals on both Verizon and 4G ATT. Perfectly acceptable for a short stay.
Rate reflects Escapees discount. Nice, basic campground with plenty of pull-throughs. Honor system as far as paying. Utilities are oddly placed in some sites. Fine for an overnight, convenient to the highway, but quiet. Laundry on premises which I certainly appreciated.
A pretty, wooded and private little FamCamp. We are here in the off-season, so no water or sewer available, but only $10 night. Our motor home comes equipped with big fresh and waste water tanks, so several days here would be no problem. Level gravel sites, some pull throughs for big rigs, brand new 50/30 amp pedestals. Close to the commissary and exchange, the gas station near Gate 1 is large and an easy in-and-out for our Class A gasser. The campground has a resident herd of antelope grazing among the sites- what fun to watch! We would definitely stay here again.
Very expensive for a state park ($20 plus $7 daily use fee), but pretty and pleasant. We're here early in the season (it was snowing as we pulled in), but 2 loops are still open. 50 amp hook-up in a pull-through site, fairly level, with a water faucet (for tank filling, not for hooking up) right next to us, so what's not to like? Walsenburg is a charming little town with some nice antique stores to explore.
Enjoyed our stay here. Spacious, private, level sites, excellent picnic shelters. Very quiet and pleasant scenery. The campground is not near the lake, so don't expect water views. Our site did not have fresh water available, but this was not an issue since we came in with a full tank. A slow but adequate internet signal on both Verizon and ATT without use of antenna or booster.
This park is highly rated, but its just not our cup of tea. Easy to get to from Hwy 54. This is a big city campground, with row after row after row of other campers. Sites are level and spacious, hook-ups are easy and convenient, nicely landscaped but no privacy. Not far to the base and the enormous PX and commissary. Staff is pleasant and helpful. The mini-mart is convenient for fueling up on the way out.
Beautiful campground with a backdrop of the dramatic Davis Mountains. Level cement sites with attractive adobe shade shelters.Very helpful park staff. Unfortunately, the days we spent here the famous pool was closed, but we still enjoyed the park and surroundings. Great for day trips to Fort Davis, Marfa and Alpine. We would certainly stay here again.
Stayed here for 10 days. Lovely campground with spacious sites. Quiet in spite of being fairly full on the weekends. Since there is no sewer hook-up, we decided to shower in the bathhouse to save filling up our gray-water tank- mistake! Showers were cold, water was just warm, not hot. Tile walls were very mildewed. Otherwise, a pleasing stop- lots of deer, bunnies, many kinds of birds. Would certainly stay here again. The $20 price reflects using a Texas State Parks Pass; otherwise it would have been $28.
We love this place! Everything is kept spic and span, sites are spacious, fun fishing off the pier and we like the Gulf breezes. Nice small commissary and Navy Exchange on base, good espresso available at the Flight Deck. Big H.E.B. and small Wal-Mart and several restaurants just outside the gate at Flour Bluff on Waldron. We stayed on the grass sites at Paradise Cove. Wish we could stay all winter!
The rate includes the daily access fee of $6. If we had an annual SP pass, camping would have been $17. A bit high for a state park with no sewer hookups. Lovely park, very lightly used. Stayed 5 days and would have stayed longer if we could have gotten a Verizon signal- no phone and no internet is the only reason we did not rate this excellent park higher. Easy back-in sites, good accessibility for big rigs (some overhanging branches).
A pretty park with lots of shade trees. Typical KOA, a little overpriced and not really geared to big rigs. Owners seem unhappy and communicate this to customers. Certainly OK for an overnight, no complaints.
A good spot to overnight or stay a few days for the fishing. This city-owned campground is perfectly serviceable,with level grass & gravel sites; a good value for full hook-ups. Mostly occupied by permanent residents but quiet and neat nonetheless.
This little park built by the Davis Co. Conservation Board is a gem! 12 fairly level gravel & grass sites, all pull-through. The 4 sites on the perimeter are suitable for any size rig. Picnic tables, fire rings, 30/50 amp electric and good water. Clean and new bath-house. If there were a dump on site, it would be darn near ideal! We meant to only overnight here, but instead decided to stay 4 days. A number of ponds with bass, bluegills and crappie dot the area, with lots of trees and pleasant walks. Two beautiful cabins are also available to rent. Bloomfield is a charming little town as well. We'll be back!
Although these were electric-only sites and there is no bathhouse, this is a beautiful park with fantastic Mississippi River views at a great price. We camped mid-week, and the park was only half full. There is a friendly, helpful host. It is very close to the casino. We would definitely stop here again.
