I can't find much negative to say about this park. The staff provided excellent service the week we were there. Created as part of a larger resort by someone with big dreams, it has everything one could want. Located between Big Bend National Park, Big Bend Ranch State Park, and the ghost town of Terlingua, there is no shortage of diversions to keep you busy if you so desire. A local grocery carries most basic supplies, including wine and fresh cold cuts. The only negative things I noticed in the entire park was that some of the sites were more dirt than grass, and the Wi-Fi was weak in the fringe sites. The rate reflects a group discount as we were part of a rally held there.
Nice park with level, paved, sites. Some very long pull-thru's are available, though most are back-in. Just a few miles from town. Accommodating staff. Would stay here again. Rate was National Park Senior discount.
If you like sand, sewer smell, loose dogs, intermittent power, and that wholesome trailer park feel, this is the place for you. Otherwise, try and find somewhere else to stay. Wi-Fi works early in morning, but by evening it is dead. Staff is great at giving conflicting information on which sites are available. We reserved one site, and were assigned another upon our arrival. They had given the site we reserved to a long term camper. Seems to be quite a demand for RV sites in the area due to pipeline construction. Also, it's quite a distance from the town of Crockett. On the positive side, the lake is nice for kayaking and fishing.
A practically new RV park and campground in Gilbert. Three miles off Highway 65. Tent area is separate from RV area. Owners are a great couple who go out of their way to make sure your stay is enjoyable. All sites are back in, and some would accommodate larger rigs, but not sure about a 40'. Hiking trails and the Buffalo river are within walking distance. Gilbert is a quaint little town and worth the six mile detour if looking for a place to stop between Conway and Harrison or Branson.
Nothing really special unless you like to spend lots of time in the casino, which I assume would get you a reduced rate. That being said, there is really nothing negative about this park. It is basically level with concrete pads and paved roads. A few potholes, but nothing major. Convenient hookups, with good cable TV. Staff were nice, and there is a sitting area with television and coffee available. Lots of places to walk dogs. Easy access to/from I-20. Will stay here every time we are in Vicksburg.
Very nice park, though the signage and road conditions make you wonder if you are on the correct route. Paved roads and concrete pads within park. Sites are well spaced. Cellular voice and data coverage were so-so. Lake was drained when we were there. Don't know if it was by plan, or drought. Great place to stop for a night, or longer if in the area.
Lots of trailers have been parked here for a long time. The two rows near the office, used as overnight, or short term spaces, are short pull throughs. If you are towing a trailer of any size, you will have to unhook after getting on your site. All hookups are at the very rear. Sites are gravel, but have concrete patios. Neighbor's slide was overhanging our patio. Wi-fi worked well at our site. Restrooms and showers were spacious and clean. Rate was PA for one night, only. The most positive thing about staying here is the Mexican restaurant across the street. Hilda's is definitely a place not to miss if in the area.
Nice enough place for an overnight or longer. Mostly long-term snowbirds when we stopped, but they have 8 or 10 nice paved pull-through sites for short term use. Very nice bath and shower facilities. Cable TV worked fine. Very particular about their pet policy. Lots of places to walk dogs outside the park across the street. We would stay here again. Rate was with PA discount.
Best place to stop in Van Horn, TX. New owners apparently, working hard to improve the facility. Everyone we had contact with was great. We stopped both going to and coming from Arizona. Lots of areas to walk pets, and handy to I-10 without too much highway noise. Only downside is the dirt/dust, but I believe you will find that everywhere near Van Horn. Would definitely stay here again.
Great campground. Sites weren't too close together and the surroundings were great. Lots of places to hike, and the caverns are well worth the price of admission. Lots to see in the area if you like old Western towns and desert drives. Would definitely stay here again.
Nothing special about this place. A large gravel parking lot with connections scattered in a number of different configurations. Folks in office were nice. Park seems to be a 50/50 mix of traveler sites and long term residences. Will probably pass on it in the future and try someplace else.
Passport rate. Neat little campground near I-10. Noise not too bad. Great folks in office that live onsite. Satellite TV delivered in a very unique way. Great place for an overnight stop, or longer, if you have interests in the area.
Nice park just South of town about eight miles. Right on highway but noise was minimal. Great Wi-Fi. No shade to speak of except at a couple of sites. Staff was nice. Lots of big rigs spending the Summer.
Convenient to most everything, especially the Buffalo Bill museum. That's about all the positive remarks I can muster. Sites are cramped with some so close to each other that you can't back in. Watched one fellow attempt to get into three different spots before he was successful. And, he knew how to back a trailer. The place wasn't dirty, but just looked really tired. the Wi-Fi was iffy, on and off. Will probably try another park when in the area again.
An older park but everything was clean and tidy. It was one of about three right close to each other, but this one looked the best. Some rental mobile homes in one area of the park, but they were well maintained and did nothing to take away from the park. Lots of folks in for the Summer. Most seemed to come for two to three months. That being said, there were also plenty of folks coming and going each day as we were. Owned by the same family for many years. Definitely the place to stay in Buena Vista.
First off, this park is not in Colorado Springs. it is probably 10-15 miles Southwest of town. That being said, it is a really nice park out in a rural area. The entire park is crushed rock which leads to a small amount of dust. The Wi-Fi and cable TV was some of the best we've used. The staff were very accommodating. Rate was PA.
This park has two different loops. One older and smaller with grass sites and the other much larger. A nice place to stay for a nite or two in Western Kansas. Biggest negative is the check in process. You must pay a campground fee along with a check in fee on one computer system. Then you have to pay another fee for just being there, on another computer system. And if you happen to be behind someone also purchasing a fishing license, just take a seat. They have lounge chairs available. I was in the office almost forty five minutes just to check in and get a site.
This park is going down hill very fast. We have stayed there numerous times in the last eight years or so. The Wi-Fi has never worked except in the office and the cable TV is a joke. On our last visit the grass had not been cut and there were pot holes everywhere in the dusty roads. The biggest insult though is their rates. Passport America is almost twenty three dollars. We spent the Summer on the road, going all the way from Alabama to Washington State and this park has the highest daily rate of any place we stayed. And most everywhere we stopped had good or better Wi-Fi and full access cable TV. Someone spent lots of money developing this park with all the concrete pads and modern electrical hookups, etc. Too bad they are pricing themselves out of the business by not catering to what RV'ers now want; things like Wi-Fi, cable, no dust, and reasonable rates. The only really positive thing I can speak for were the staff. The two ladies I dealt with were very nice.
To call this place a RV Resort is really a stretch. Gravel drive and pads. Of the 68 advertised sites, approximately 60 were taken with long term campers. True, they were all RV's of some kind, but most had been here a while. It would be better to call it a plain old trailer park with a few overnight spots for travelers. There has to be better accommodations somewhere nearby. The one good thing is that it is convenient to the downtown area. Rate paid was Passport America.
This is an older State Park. It is on a beautiful small lake with 8 pull through sites. Sites 1-4 have 12X12 decks built out over the hillside, overlooking the lake. The restrooms and showers were dated, but clean. The onsite Ranger was the friendliest I have ever met. Dropped by a couple of times a day asking if everything was ok, and if he could help with anything. Nor really close to anything. Actually closer to the town of Sebastipol so I'm going to list it there, also. If looking for a place to get away and do nothing but maybe fish or hike, this is the place.
This posting is more about the hosts rather than the park itself. The campground is nice enough, about what you would expect for an Alabama State Park. We arrived at dusk and had to find the host's site. Nothing posted at gate giving site numbers of hosts. Only found them by driving around the Campground and looking for the most clutter. The (host) lady came out of their trailer and had me fill out the registration standing in the rain with about a 30 mph wind blowing. She gave me a site number and we drove down to it and commenced setting up. Had already disconnected the trailer from the tow vehicle, when she walks up and tells me I have to move as her husband had taken a reservation for that site earlier in the day and had not put it in the book. As there was an empty pullthrough site just like the one I was on, next door, I asked why they couldn't give them that one. She was adamant about me moving so I had to reconnect the trailer and move to the adjoining site. Needless to say, when we got up the next morning, there was no one on the site we were removed from. Overall, these unprofessional hosts ruined what should have been a pleasant evening off the road. Another thing: you can spend the night in a great private park with Wi-Fi, TV, and helpful hosts for what Alabama is now charging for a site in their state parks.
Great park for an overnight or longer. We used it for a location to get ready for entering Canada. Plenty of grass. Sites were gravel, but level. Back ins and pull thru's available. Very quiet while we were there. Even had Wi-Fi from somewhere. Saw the local police make a couple of pass throughs so didn't feel any security issues. Just a mile or so North of downtown. Would definitely stay here over the other parks in town.
Even though this park looks pretty run down, it is like an oasis in the desert. After failing to find anywhere to stay near Williston, ND, this was the next stop. We called ahead to the number listed in the Montana visitor guide and was told we would have a site when we got there. We were directed to a level, freshly mowed, back in site with full hookups and great WI-FI. There were many long term sites, but also a number of over nite type sites. If ever in the area again, I would have no problem staying here.
Highest rate we paid on a 39 night journey. Site was gravel back in. Hookups not very convenient. Staff were nice, but free breakfast consisted of cereal, and bread for toast, along with coffee. There wasn't anything really bad about this park, but I would expect more for the rate charged.
Nice public park campground. Had a W/E site on the lake. Grass could have used a cutting, but wasn't bad. A number of longterm campers mixed in with overnighters. Pay showers, but they were clean and worked just fine. Nice park area for walking along the lake. Easy access to/from Hwy 2. Would stay here again.
Spent 3 nights here. Typical KOA. Dirt, sand sites. Ours was a back in which was unlevel, but was able to get the trailer level. Had to dig down in the sand to get the jacks down. Lots of families camping, so there are a lot of smoldering campfires as the evenings go on. Staff was accommodating. Really nice boarding kennel for your pet nearby. Close to town, with shuttle for Mackinaw Island ferry. Showers were individual rooms which got really steamy and warm. Would probably stay here again if in area, but nothing special.
Arrived as a drop in without reservation for 1 night. Requested a W/E site. Was assigned a spot in the rear of the park. Dirt, but level. No cable TV. WI-FI only worked near, or in the main building. Even though we didn't have a problem with our TT, did see a number of motorhomes trying to navigate the narrow roads and sites. It wasn't pretty. Would stay again if in a bind, but otherwise would look for another park.
Can't add much to what has already been said. Only real negative is the lack of shade. Staff were great. Sites are concrete, long, and level. Individual restroom/shower rooms were clean. Nice pool. Within 10 miles or less of just about everything; shoping, dining, beachs, etc.
This campground has just reopened from the damage of hurricane Katrina. There are two loops open at the present time. The pool and water park are not yet open. There are new bath houses but they aren't air conditioned and feel more like saunas. Just about impossible to get dry in the hot, steamy conditions. Very poor design. The floors were covered with bugs, both dead and alive. The campsites themselves have concrete pads, but they were mostly covered with dirt or sand. Hopefully things will improve as time goes by, but if I were again looking for an overnight spot, I would stay at the casino campground just to the West of here. $24.00 seemed a little steep for the amemities provided.
Beautiful park in a beautiful location. Has dead level concrete sites, some with shade trees in the desert. Arrived for one night, stayed for 3. The only negative was the price. $38.00 seems a little steep for a 17' TT, but would still stay here again if in the area. Convenient to the town of Page, which has restaurants and a new Wal-Mart.
Pretty decent park for an overnight stay. Very convenient to I-20 and a number of restaurants, including Cracker Barrel at the next exit. As previously stated, not all sites are level, but they only require a block or two. The one we had was perfect. Never met anyone while we were there. Spoke with the owner on phone a couple of hours before arrival, and he told us what to do. Said he wasn't going to be available, so pick a spot, put the money in the box, and he would see us the next morning. As we departed early the next morning we missed seeing him, but received a phone call from him later that day. He was wanting to make sure everything worked out for us and if there were any problems. Passport America rate. Would stay here again.
Our second visit here in two years. Very scenic campground just a few minutes from town. Staff was very accommodating as there were 3 rigs traveling together. Wi-Fi worked fine from our site near the back of the campground. Small store for necessities. Can't think of any negatives other than some of the sewer connections don't match all rigs, but they seem to have temporary plumbing already available to remedy that if needed. Could possibly become pretty crowded in midsummer but would still stay here rather than in town.
Beautiful park for this part of Texas. We arrived on a Tuesday and had our choice of sites even thought most had reserved tags on them for the following weekend. As we were only passing through this was not a problem. Would recommend reservations if you planned to be there on a Friday or Saturday. The larger campground is open with large trees and views of Lake Conroe. The sites were all large and spacious. Staff were nice and helpful. Bring your own firewood as none can be collected in the nearby forest due to a woodpecker reclamation project. Would definitely stay here again. Fee was with senior discount.
Very nice campground. Convenient location for visiting many different parts of the Hill Country. Staff were exceptional. Wednesday night dinners were great. Could possibly get pretty hot in the summer due to the fact there is little shade. Restrooms/showers were limited, one each for men and women, but clean. There's a large recreation hall and also a large firepit area. Would definitely stay here again
The campground was full due to Mardi Gras. This led to some pretty crowded conditions. There had also been a lot of rain which led to some standing water. Otherwise the campground is pretty nice. It is close to all kinds of shopping, but feels isolated. It is also convenient to the interstate. Staff were friendly. We would stay here again. The price was with senior discount.
Talk about confusing. All sites with water and electric are reservation only. We arrived to find only one other RV in the whole campground and all the water/electric sites padlocked closed. The fee for the electric only sites was the same as the W/E sites. After consulting with the very accommodating host, we were able to get a W/E site for one night. All the sites could use some work, but it looked as if some upgrades were being done. The area is very pretty with large pines and hardwoods. We would stay here again if passing through. There is not much to do in area. The fee was golden age price.
As others have said, nothing extraordinary about this park, but the general area is wonderful if you like red rock country. All sites are paved and some have shade. Individual shower rooms were clean. The hike from the park up into the petrified forest area is great. Much to see in the surrounding area. Be sure to stop at local BLM visitor center in town for maps and information. Would definitely stay here again.
A beautiful NFS campground just 7 miles from the entrance to the North Rim. It is presently being run by a concessionaire who has the nearby lodge. Restaurant and Wi-Fi access available there. Sites are gravel with different sizes and parking options. Pit toilets. No dump station.
I rate this a typical NPS campground except for the electricity. Sites were adequate but not private. There's lots of dirt and dust. Those are the negatives. There are beautiful views from campground. The staff was wonderful. There's plenty to do in a lot of different directions. Restrooms were very clean, considering the use they received. Would stay here again.
A great forest service campground. It's divided into 2 sections, I prefer the Western side. Paved sites with enough vegetation in between to give privacy. Has a very nice double dump station. Beautiful area just a few miles from Bryce Canyon. Be sure and visit National Forest Visitor Center just west of Campground. They have maps of the area along with much more.
Very nice campground. Beautiful area with many great hikes and wildlife viewing opportunities. Few amenities, except toilets and lavatories. Plenty of quiet time from generators. Much history associated with area, also. Be sure and try the pies from the CG store, as well as dine at the Cafe Diablo in Torrey if you have the time, and a few extra bucks. Well worth it. Would stay here again.
Older park, with some really nice sites, and some you wouldn't want. We had a short pull through in the older, original part of the park. Slightly unlevel, but no real problems. Restrooms and showers were clean. Trains no problem. Would stay here again.
Nice campground. Just spent one night but would return if in the area. Staff was accommodating with directions and such. Showers were clean. A lot of semi-permanent RV'S, but all were well kept. Looked more like a RV timeshare park than a regular RV Park.
Nice state park. Good sites with access to walking/bike path alongside lake, and room to park tow. Plenty of shade. Restroom/showers were a mess the three days we were there. We left early in the morning and didn't get back until late each day, so it could be that they were cleaned properly but trashed before we used them. Dirt and sand everywhere, even on the sinks. Also could use some better ventilation, especially in the Summer. Would probably stay here again.
Nice campground convenient to everything around Mountain View and surrounding area. Staff very accommodating. Some of the older, shaded sites are really small with little extra space to park the tow vehicle. Sites were gravel, but looked as if drainage was good. Restrooms old, but clean. Would stay again.
What a sad situation. A once beautiful park being allowed to deteriorate as this one has should be illegal. The lake is practically empty due to problems with the lake bed that haven't been addressed. The roads are deplorable. Leaking water lines in the newer parts of the campground. That being said, the restroom/shower building we were near was practically new, and was very clean. All ceramic tile. our site was what should have been lakeside, and was really nice. The staff were all very nice. It is just a shame that the state of Mississippi has allowed this park, situated as it is on the Natchez Trace, to get in such deplorable condition.
A nice state park. Rate reflects price for one of 4 full hookup sites with sewer. 50 amp only receptacles on those, so bring your adapter if you have 30 amp plug and want full hookup. W/E sites are 30 amp only. Bath houses were dated but clean. Great paved hiking/ biking trails throughout the park with some fantastic views of the lake. Great golf course as part of park, also.
Good location convenient to Florence, Decatur and Huntsville. Campground was clean and restrooms/showers were above average. Lots of kids riding bicycles and such. Good golf course also a part of state park. Lodge had fast Wi-Fi. Biggest negative was one of the campground hosts. Their site looked like a 3rd rate trailer park with all kinds of stuff piled around. Everyone else is required to keep their pets on a leash, but host let their big dog out every morning to run around the campground alone, take care of business, causing a lot of barking and problems for those of us trying to walk our dogs properly.
First off, don't arrive in Moab on a Friday without a reservation. That is how we found ourselves here. Everything else in town was full. This is a very old, dusty, stinky, close, campground. To call it an RV park is a misnomer. Most campers are tenters with bikes, jeeps, and fourwheelers. The sites are approximately 4 feet apart. They allow campfires which are left smoldering at night and make sleeping without the windows closed and the AC on impossible. Did I mention AC? The power fluctuates with each RV joining the loop and you have to decide which is the worse, smelling the various odors while you try to sleep, or burn up the compressor on your AC. The restrooms/showers smelled! The staff were nice folks and the wi-fi worked only at the office. Would only stay here aqain if it was the last resort.
Nice park in a desolate area. Staff was very accommodating. Best place for day trips into Big Bend National Park. Our site had a number of nails and wood screws scattered around the site, but picked up all we saw and had no flat tires after out departure. Considered ourselves, lucky. The Burnt Biscuit is worth the stop. Passport America park.
Nice park. Nothing outstanding, but clean park close to town, with easy access to the hill country. The rest rooms and showers were clean and the staff was very accommodating. Nice walk down to the river from campground. Burro's really like corn chips.
I rate this park for what it is, a place to spend the night. I found it was a little tight on the smaller sites, but it also had a number of pull through sites for the big rigs which seemed to have plenty of room. From what we saw on a drive through town, this is the best choice. The showers and restrooms were clean. We arrived and picked our site per the note on the door, and paid when the owner arrived later in the day. Wi-fi and cable worked fine at our site. Would stay here again.
This is a nice park about halfway between Montrose and Ridgeway. Sites are gravel with a little grass in between. Staff was very nice, and really knowledgable about the area. Wi-fi worked fine from our site which was quite a ways from office. This is a Passport America park. We would definitely stay here again.
Nice park a few miles from town. Very quiet area, nestled along a creek. The wi-fi worked only up the hill at the office while we were there, but was told would be in all the campground in a few days. Staff were friendly and accommodating. Would stay here again.
A beautiful park. Closer to Wynn, Arkansas; than Forrest City. Staff was very accommodating. Restrooms were clean, but the showers could have used a few more hooks for towels and clothing. Rate was for a Water and Electric site in lower campground. All sites there were well spread out, although all were back in. Plenty of things for the outdoor lover including bike trails, hiking, fishing, and etc.I would definitely stay here again.
A nice park with plenty of room. Near interstate, and easy to get on and off. I Agree with most everything other posters have said. The only weird thing is that you have to have a reservation to use Passport America. I would stay here again.
Located about 14 miles south of town on Hwy 115. Very nice area. Hiking trail up the mountain. Our site was slightly unlevel, but not a major problem. Washed gravel sites and most are shaded to some extent. Lots of deer around, even two bucks fighting in a vacant site near ours one evening as we grilled out. We stayed two days and had no complaints. Wifi worked fine at our site near entrance. As other poster said. No large playground of amusement park nearby, but a very nice park to use as a base for exploring the area. We would stay here again.
Good location, border of RMNP. A lot of dead and dying trees due to beetle infestation. We stayed in what was called the meadow, which was a large field with hookups. Very unlevel, but able to move forward or back in our site to level up with the help of a few blocks. Staff were very good. Plenty of wildlife opportunities, along with horseback and atv trail rides. Adjoining national forest land on rear of campground. Would stay here again.
A place to spend the night(hopefully). A gravel parking lot with W/E. Pet area is raw dirt. High intensity flood lights fill your RV with yellow light, even with shades pulled. Restrooms were dirty in the morning. Apparently a lot of semi-permanent residents work in the oil patch or wherever and use facilities. Less bang for the buck than any park we have ever stayed in. Would only stay here again if no other option available.
Good park. Site was unlevel but not a major problem. Staff was good. Wifi at cabin rental office. Restaurant very overpriced. Everything else fine. Laundry and small grocery on site. Great view of Jackson Lake and Teton's a short hike from park. Would stay here again.
It is what it is. A place to park an RV with full hookups in the middle of Yellowstone. Our site was in B loop with plenty of room for our trailer. Even had satellite reception on my portable dish. Saw a wolf (not a coyote) out the camper window one morning. That's worth 39 bucks. Would stay here again, and again, etc.
Very congested park. Our site was a dirt back-in with standing water for two days. Restrooms and showers were clean, but area outside the doors were very dirty. Office staff were nice, and helpful with information. Would stay here again, as I suspect most all parks in area are close to the same, if not worse, with all the traffic they get each Summer.
Great park for an overnight or longer. Convenient to Interstate and downtown area. Also a downtown shuttle ran throughout the park a number of times each night while we were there. Restrooms were spotless. Peter is a workhorse who seems to really enjoy running his park. No shade, so it may get hot in Summer.
This campground is managed by the National Forest Service and is in poor shape. It was probably a beautiful facility years ago but has had very little maintenance for a long time. The roads are rutted and a lot of the sites have erosion problems. The water is tagged as non-potable due to some type mineral contamination. The restrooms and showers were acceptable. Also near a railroad which has a coal train about every 30 minutes throughout most of the night. I would pass on this one in the future if at all possible.
Very nice overnight stop. A few of miles north of town, and a couple of miles off Interstate, but still convenient enough. Restrooms and showers were great. Wifi was weak at campsite near restrooms, but worked fine at the office. Good CATV lineup. Would stay here again.
Great park for overnight on the Natchez Trace. No amenities of any kind other than drinking water and restrooms. We actually stayed in the picnic area as the campground was already full when we arrived around 4pm. Check with the store at the entrance to campground for permission to use picnic area.
Campground was mostly empty. Very few level sites. Most sites are high front to rear or rear to front. Bath house was showing age, but was clean. 10 PM quiet time not enforced. Loud vehicles entering and leaving park well after midnight. Would stay again.
This was our first visit to this campground, and we found it to be as previously described. We stayed in the "new" campground, which had level concrete pads spaced reasonably well apart. It seemed to be the choice of most travelers, and was nearest to the lake. The "old" campground appeared to have more extended stay use, but was closer to the entrance by a couple of miles. The bathhouse in the new campground could have used a good cleaning of the mildew, and a coat of paint. While it wasn't filthy, it could have been much better. The doors on the showers had no latches and there were very few hooks or shelves to place clothes, soap, etc. on. It appeared that a lot of the campers in this campground were like us, and traveling the Natchez Trace. We saw folks from the Midwest, Northeast, Ontario and Colorado while there for 2 days. If this was the only state park they visited in Mississippi, they received a very poor impression of the state park system.
Great National Forest campground. Beautiful shaded sites, some with decks overlooking the hills and the lake. Bike trails through the forest with plenty of hiking available also. Feels as if you are in the mountains rather than deep down in Dixie. We will stay there every chance we get.
Very nice park. Camped in upper campground. Most sites required considerable leveling but otherwise was a nice place to stay for a couple of days loafing in the area. Small Amish community just to the north of town.
