Nice place in general. Location a bit remote. Trees provide shade on all sites, but also makes the reception of sat TV near impossible with a roof mounted dish. We did manage to find a small hole between trees on site #120. Verizon Internet reception was good. Bumpy road that are narrow in places for big rigs. Restrooms are old and not in good repair. No soap provided and no means for drying your hands. We never found any washing machine. The park would benefit from a general overhaul. Very nice golf courses nearby. We would stay here again.

This is like camping in the woods. Only site that will let you use an "on the roof" satellite dish looks to be site #21 - all other sites have no clear view towards the south. Good Internet from own Verizon based system. Roads are very narrow in places, so watch for overhanging branches and leaning tree trunks. Camping area #2 is all refurbished and will offer the best spots including sewer connections, but all of this area was not made available to us when we arrived. Easy drive to down town Savannah. We took our own car there and unpacked our push-bikes from the trunk. Nice way to see everything. Head for the down-town Tourist Information and start looking for parking meters here.

Very nice sea-side park. Heaven for boaters and fishermen. Fluctuating electric power is a major issue. We was struggling running a single AC unit, and when we connected our surge protector we got no power whatsoever. Bring supplies as shops are not close by, and also bring lots of insect repellent - you will need it.

Another Thousand Trails campground that is not maintained like it used to be. Campground store is now closed, and with no plans to reopen it. Water pressure 100 PSI (twice the pressure recommended for RVs) which blew our Camco water pressure reducer, our toilet valve and our wet bay check valve. Wanted propane when leaving but was told there was no one was able to operate the propane station. If it wasn't for the convenient location, and expensive membership already paid, we could find better places to stay.

Price reflects Coast 2 Coast rate. The June 2012 reviewer must mistake this campground with some other one. Paved roads and gravel sites - not a problem. Nice view of the Colorado River, palm trees throughout the campground, mini golf, pitch and put golf course, club house, 2 swimming pools, 2 hot tubs, all nicely maintained. Don't forget that this is a desert location, so vegetation reflects this. Emerald Cove remains a favorite spot of ours, and we return to here every year.

Unfortunately I have to agree with the previous posts - this is a campground in rapid decline. We have been here before and found the place to be OK, but we could see how standards were slipping. Another thing is that the campground is very close to large areas filled with cows, and when we were there, there was a strong smell from the cows accompanied by ½ million flies. Next time we pass through this area we will find another place to stay, and there are plenty of them nearby.

We liked this RV park. Friendly check-in. Paved roads and a perfect drive-through concrete site. The place was quite busy with long term residents from the oil industry, but everything kept very tidy and nice. We did expect some noise from the I-10 but it was next to nothing. New(ish) washer/dryers at a very reasonable price - we like that. Free breakfast - we didn't have the time to try it out so we can't comment on the quality, but the fact that it is offered shows commitment. We will stay here again whenever we visit Beaumont.

This is an extremely enjoyable campground. If you pick sites "in the boat ramp end" you are likely to get a nice bay view from your site. Most sites are spacious which we enjoy. Bath houses are in especially good condition, although we do disagree with the fact that they close the bathhouses for cleaning during the busiest morning hours. Super nice beaches close by which are very reachable if you bring a pedal bike. We liked it here a lot and we will be back.

This is a very large campground, but make no mistake, it is a gem. A well-maintained park with large sites. We stayed here on Veterans Day weekend and there were plenty of vacant sites. Swimming pool was not heated so we did not get to try it out, but we can imagine it would be very nice during summer months. The beach is close by and so is local shopping. We also got to try out the State Park Golf Course, not world class, but very enjoyable nevertheless. We will definitely come back to this place.

This campground has 2 loops - an old one without sewer connections and a newer one with sewer connections. The old loop is extremely overgrown to the extent that a motorhome will catch the vegetation on both sides going on the main road. Many of the old loop sites are an absolute nightmare to get a large rig into. We stayed at site 18 as it was listed as suited for a 40" motorhome. We got paint damage on both sides of the motorhome due to tree branches sticking out way too far. We would strongly suggest that large rigs not make use of the old loop and stick to the new loop only. We would like to come back here some day now that we know where our rig will fit in.

It would seem that the new ownership by Encore means that the privileges that all the members paid large sums of money for, is been taken away piece by piece. It makes us wonder if the strategy is to "scare" all existing members away before setting up a new moneymaking membership? Bath houses are well below par, and the ground is not maintained like it used to be. All security systems (guarded entry and golf cart patrols) have been abandoned. The old Thousand Trails system seems to be falling apart and all the prime sites are now not available to TT members. This is all in all a very disappointing. development.

Our second visit here. Top class campground amongst many permanent "houses". We got a site right next to the main pool and club house. Not cheap accommodation but you get what you pay for. The site is pretty empty this time of year and we felt like we had everything to ourselves. We will return to this place for sure.

Nice park in general. Not many visitors this time of year. We were disappointed that the pool area was closed. Officially this was due to a problem with a pump, but how long should it take to fix that? One day? Two days? Not more that a week surely. The grassed areas seriously needed cutting. Probably not a place we would return to, but this is also because we didn't take to Miami in general. Too much traffic and too many people for our liking.

Our second stay at this camp ground. We came only 2 days after they re-opened the camp ground after a serious overhaul. Now the roads are paved, the sites have full hook-ups, and bathrooms have been re-done. It was again a real pleasure the stay here, only now even better.

Nice park. Nice and friendly check-in and a world of information about shops, points of interest etc. Grassy sites but firm and well kept. Pool was nice and hot and so was the hot tub. This place is worth another visit some other time.

This is still one of our favourite parks. However, some things have changed over the past 4 years we have come here. Today there is no more water in the lake than you could mop-up with a couple of towels. It is therefore no longer relevant when stating that waterfront sites are available. Also, this year most of the deer have either moved elsewhere or have been removed. There are still a small number left but it's a mere fraction of what was here the years before. Nevertheless, we love it here.

Passport America rate - 30amp. This is an unpaved parking area. Perfect for a cheap overnight stop. For anything else it's probably useless. Advertised wi-fi no-where to be found. Expect nothing and you won't be disappointed. We will be back when passing through some other time.

This park appears old and run down. Approximately half the sites are occupied by what seems to be very old and very permanent RVs including various extensions and sheds. This was not one of this parks best features. We saw a number of people fishing over our 4 day stay, but never saw anybody catching anything. There is a dairy farm with lots of cows right next door and we did smell them when the wind was in "our" direction. We had only minor problems with flies. We probably won't go back here.

As stated in previous comments, this is a well maintained and well run park. It is a mixture of park models and RV's. Streets are narrow in places and you need a steady hand to reverse your 40 foot motorhome into some of the spots. We especially enjoyed the large pools and spa's. This is more than likely not the last time we have been here. We used our Passport America membership.

A State Park in peak condition. Excellent for trekking. Do remember that the park "only" offers electricity. No sewer and no water. Having said this, the park also offers restrooms to a high standard seldom seen. No shops nearby so bring everything you need. Some noise from the Interstate and from trains to be expected. Nothing to worry to much about though.

Again: another extremely nice State Park. If you can do without a clubhouse and a swimming-pool, then State Parks remains an excellent choice for a quiet camp site close to nature. Shopping possibilities are really close by. Only regret. Golf courses are really expensive in this area, this time a year. But it would hardly be fair to blame this on this fantastic campground.

Very tight for a 40 foot motorhome. Probably the most difficult back-in we have had for several years. Once in, it's an OK place. A lot of park models but still a reasonable amounts of RV's. We enjoyed the warmest swimming-pool ever. It has to be said that we still prefer the adjacent Cal-Am park named Val Del Oro, but yes - we would definitely stay here again.

I have to break the trend of an almost perfect record. Checked in by people not very service minded people. No information on the area in general was issued: none at all. For $54 per night you should not have to pay $2 for a shower. You can get a decent motel room for $54 per night and this includes showers, cleaning, etc., and here you do not bring your own accommodation. Apart from all this, the campground itself is indeed very nice and it is conveniently located: especially for boat people. Conclusion: Nice but definitely very much overpriced.

Still a lot of empty sites in October. Sites are large and check-in is very friendly. New hot tub going in right now. Have been here before and will stay here again.

Yet another nice state park right by the shores of Colorado River. Great place for boating and jet-ski people. Not so great if you are "allergic" to the noise coming from these. $30 per night is perhaps a bit on the high side for "only" State park facilities but everything in pristine working and maintained order. You can get a decent Verizon signal here, although not on all sites. If you need a signal, check it before you commit yourself to a specific site number. Asked permission to use ½ a bucket of water to wash off the bugs on the front of the RV. This was declined by the manager.

We nice and new park. No one there except us which we found surprising, since both neighbor State Parks (one either side) had plenty of visitors. No connection on our Verizon USB modem - even with a booster aerial connected. With reference to the sewer dumping fee mentioned in previous post - surely this is part of the campground fee if you have paid this?

We really liked this place. We were fortunate enough to get to experience autumn colours and very much enjoyed the trips the park has to offer. There are only 15 hook-up sites and it would appear that you need to make a booking early to get one of these. If you are "self-sufficient" for a day or two - don't cheat yourself by by-passing this site.

Fantastic place. No facilities except for a "hole in the ground" toilet that you do not want to use even when desperate. Fabulous view and at night you can experience the rear phenomenon of seeing the stars without light pollution. Remember: No hook-ups. Just you and whichever facilities that you bring along with you. Nightly rate is $0 (free) but this can't be entered into system so I have entered $1.

Good place to stay for the attractions, especially Graceland within easy walking distance. Some people mention security issues - not a problem for us. We didn't feel unsafe at all and everything appeared nice and tidy. Security at the gate. Average size sites and park in overall good condition. We would come again.

We have been here before. A perfect place for an overnight stop. All facilities available incl CATV and Internet. Not noisy at all even though it is close to "a major traffic artery". A large gas station for trucks on your doorstep. Ideal for fueling up your large motorhome (easy access). Friendly staff/owners. We will be back.

Great place to stay if you want to see New Orleans. The Huey P. Long bridge is now open in both directions although lanes are at present too narrow for me to take my motorhome across. Nice clean campground with spacious paved sites. Some construction noise is audible while protection from flooding is carried out. Looks like this work will take a few month. As usual there are no sewer connection available in State Parks so come prepared and use the bath houses if you can. We will be back to this site.

This was just a small stop on our way to New Orleans but a pleasant surprise. We got a waterfront site with a fantastic view. Very quiet surroundings. What we didn't like was the long dusty road into the camp ground area. The motorhome and car was covered in dust after just one trip into our site. The entrance is too narrow and the exit is just slightly better. Take your time getting lined up and send our your co-pilot to help navigating when going in and out with your rig. This is a "will return" site.

An absolute little gem of a camp ground. New tarmac roads and large clean sites. It is slightly hilly but not a problem with such nice roads. Not having been to Tupelo before we thought that this is a "one horse town" and we had made sure to bring everything we needed. Don't do that. There are a ton of shops everywhere within a mile or two. This is on our list for a re-visit.

What a nice place. Clean and green. If you have a fixed roof TV antenna you will most likely not be able to use this here since almost all sites are shaded by trees. Ideal for people who bring a boat. This place is worth another visit some day.

We do agree with the previous reviews - this is an extremely nice camp ground, but everything is not perfect unless you are a "boating person". We arrived on a Sunday, and the noise from jet skiers and large power boats drowns out the peace and quiet. There is also a train that sounds like it is passing 10 feet behind your rig while hooting "the familiar sound". Unfortunately we found that the noise was to much for us.

Stayed here in April and now we are back. Some sites are now being rented out on a yearly basis (this will prevent you from choosing some of the more attractive sites within the campground) and you can now also camp here without being a member of Thousand Trails. We wonder if this is the beginning of the end of "members only" campgrounds? Why would we pay an expensive annual membership if we are refused the best sites and if we can get in anyway without a membership? BTW - both times we have been here this year to water has been cut off due to burst water pipes so make sure that you are self-sufficient to some extend when arriving.

Nice clean camp ground in immaculate condition. Only 2 RV's (incl us) on the entire camp ground but we can see why this will be busy later on in the year. Not a lot of shopping opportunities so stock up before coming. This place can only be recommended and we will have no hesitation staying here again.

First of all this site is big. If you happen to get a site furthest from the entrance you will have a very long walk to the bath houses and approx 3/4 mile)to the pool. Other than this this camp ground is immaculate in every way, well, almost. We was informed that the campground was at "high level" and therefore we would have no problems with mosquitoes. As it happened we have never been to a site where we received more mosquito bites than on this one. We had mosquito bites on top of our mosquito bites. Haven said this, campground is well worth a visit.

Fantastic site but unfortunately also a fantastic price. $90 per night would buy you a nice hotel room in most places. Seaside spot with a fabulous view and in general piece and quiet. The entire camp ground was pretty much deserted but we was told that in about a month time most sites would be occupied. Would have expected a free wireless connection for $90 per night, therefore "only" a 9 rating.

Poorly signposted at US 41. You will be lucky if you spot the sign the first couple of times you pass. Neither of our 2 GPS would take us directly to the RV park. No direct access to the park if you approach from the south: you will have to make a difficult U-turn on the busy US 41. All sites were waterlogged, we got the one that was the driest and we made huge tiremarks on the ground. We were instructed that we could not put our jacks directly on the ground. Staff did lend us some blocks to put under the jacks. Has a nice pool and friendly staff. Also has expensive laundry facilities. There are many campgrounds in the area and we will probably try a different one next time we are in the area.

What a treat! If this campground had sewer connections, it would have been a 10 for us. Was clean, tidy and the gravel freshly raked. We had a site with a grand view of the sea. Has super bathrooms. You will more than likely have to book early to get a space here (especially in the first row towards the sea), but if you do make it we will be surprised if you don't like this campground. We will be back: definitely.

As others have mentioned, the old section is a 4 mile drive through the park. This is "nature camping" and is favoured by tent campers. The new section is just off the highway and is favored by larger rigs. Having said that, we stayed in the old section (site #135) in a 40 foot motorhome. Other sites #'s will accommodate big rigs, but #135 is probably the easiest to get to. We did have a problem with low voltage (94-95 volts) which our surge protector didn't accept. While here, we got to see some of the local wildlife really close and would probably chose the old section again, should we get to stay in the area again.

As previously stated by others this is a very nice park and it deserves the good rating that it is getting. Nicest bathrooms that we have come across in years. Nice size heated pool.

Basically this is a very nice park where they have managed the difficult art of mixing park models with RV's. Friendly staff, big heated pool and hot tub, good laundry and in general a nice atmosphere. We can appreciate that if you get a site close to the busy I-75 you will have 24/7 road noise which could drive you mad in a very short time. We got a site right on the lake and away from the road so we didn't experience the noise as a problem although it will always be audible. Choose your site wisely when arriving or booking. We would come back and will recommend the park to others.

This park is going from being a park for traveling RV's to a park that houses park models and permanent residents, and we find this to a step in the wrong direction. Sites are narrow and very hard to get in and out of for big rigs. Pool was heated but not enough for anyone to get in it and hot tub was filled up with concrete (closed). This park needs an upgrade in the very near future. We went looking at Rolling Ridge RV Park situated immediately opposite The Bee's. This would cost $15 more per day but we will most likely go there next time.

Popular park within a few miles from the beach and Daytona Speedway. Noise from the freeway is noticeable but not a problem. Spaces are narrow and there is not a lot of room to back in a big rig. Atmosphere is friendly and most of all - the pool is hot and pleasant. For motorcycle enthusiast the biggest Harley Davidson dealer in the world is right next door - worth a visit even for non bikers. We would stay here again.

Camping in a forest is the best way we can describe this. If you like hiking, biking, trekking and don't care about the usual camp ground facilities, this is the place for you. There is a big lake right next to the camp ground (electric engines only allowed). Has clean toilet/bath facilities. Beware if you travel in a 40-foot coach or similar. Roads are very narrow and reversing into your site can be a challenge. Make sure to disconnect your toad before getting to the actual camp ground area. We didn't and that was a mistake. We would camp here again.

This is a typical "stop-over" site with nothing else to do but wait for next days traveling. No attractions nearby at all. Easy on and off the I-75 and not too noisy considering. Friendly check-in. Here is one thing that we really didn't like at all: You make booking and make payment in advance. When you show up the park charge you an additional $4.75 per day park fee. Park fee? This does not cover 50 amp, cable TV, internet or anything like that. This is a fee on top of the price already agreed. We don't think this is acceptable. We may stay here again but only for a quick stop-over and only after having agreed THE FULL PRICE before arriving.

Here is an excellent example on how to run a most successful RV park. Tidy, professional, well organized, active and in general well looked after. Warm hot-tub and warm(ish) pool. Result: Fully booked both times we have been here. On top of this (if you are a golfer) there are 2 nice and very reasonably priced golf courses nearby. We will stay here again, and we can only give it our highest recommendation.

It's hard to find any major faults on this campground: we didn't find any. Furthermore we were lucky and got a place with a view over the Gulf which obviously added to our overall impression. Probably the cleanest, best bathrooms that we have ever come across. Private white sandy beach. Roomy sites with 50 amp and a table/bench. Level concrete pads. Pool was unfortunately not heated. Old deaf couple next door played loud Austria Beer Fest music on their outdoor stereo all day, but don't worry: they will be gone by the time you get here. Expensive park but worth the money. We would stay here again and recommend the park to others.

Basically a nice place to stay as long as you are "self contained". If you rely on the communal facilities you may be disappointed. We found the sites to be nice and level, but being dirt roads we can imagine that on wet days they can be not so nice. Entry to the park was OK. The exit looks rather bumpy and un-even. We don't anticipate having problems with excessively sharp corners or overhanging branches. A long way to the nearest supermarket (12-14 miles or thereabouts) so shop before you get here. We would stay here again.

Very friendly check-in. Nice clean bathrooms. 50 amp spacious pull-through sites. Everything you need for a quick overnight stop. Didn't really hear the noise from the I-10 but did clearly hear the hooting from the train passing just behind the camp ground. Absolutely nothing happens in the surrounding area so this is not the place to spend a week's holiday, but as mentioned it's perfect for a stop-over. We would stay here again.

This is supposedly a Coast to Coast Deluxe park. How they got accepted as a C2C park in the first place remain a puzzle to us. Missing signs to the park made us overshoot the entrance and having to make an unwanted U-turn on a narrow road. No signs at all saying "Coast to Coast" and no signs saying "5 Star Resort". Uneven dirt roads with large water-filled potholes. Water logged grassed camp sites. Pull through sites were not level. Laundry area was OK except there was only cold water connected. Want to use the clubhouse? Leave a $10 deposit. This campground has plenty of potential but the opportunity is being wasted big time. We will not be staying here again and we will not recommend the place to anyone.

If you really like nature and can do without clubhouse, pot luck dinners, swimming pool etc, this is the place to come. Nice friendly check-in at the gate. Clean bath houses. A number of small bike or walking paths. Benches and fireplace/BBQ for all sites. Apparently this is a busy park especially over the weekends, so early booking is advised. NOTE: There is a daily fee of $4 per person per day added to your camp ground expenses. This is a park admission fee. We liked this place and will definitely stay here again given the opportunity.

This place has great potential but is falling apart. Roads are a disaster after 2 days of rain - potholes and mud everywhere. Your coach and car gets covered in mud, which the campground will let you wash off yourself if you pay them $8 per day. On the 13th of March Western Horizon has introduced a new scheme that will have you part with at least $5 per day in surcharges. EACH ONE of about 8 items will cost you $4 PER DAY, itmes like f.x. cable, wi-fi, 50 amp, having a pet or extra person in your coach. They will be nice to you and sell you all items for the $5 per day, but they will charge you even before they find out if you want/need any of these services. We don't like this way of extracting money out of people for things that today should be included in your campground fee. Unfortunately there was no friendly staff to make up for the parks shortcomings. There are so many other campgrounds in Rockport so there is no reason to come here again - even if we can use our campground membership. Two newly installed oil rigs are in operation within the campground which does not add to the architecture. Treat youself - go somewhere else.

The park has new paved roads and large gravel sites. It appears very "sterile" and lacks character. Hopefully this park will "age" quickly and get some of the charm that it deserves. We liked the friendly management. We disliked the very small and unheated pool and we very much disliked the dogs "leftovers" on all grassed areas. Dogs can run freely without a leash on this RV park, but this commits the management so that people don't have to be afraid to walk without the risk of stepping in something - you get the drift. The site is OK for a quick stop-over or a couple of days. Beyond this this park would get really boring very quickly unless you bring your own party/friends.

Nice intimate campground with a lot of atmosphere. You quickly get to know the other RV'ers on the site because of the famous court yard fireplace. REMEMBER!!!!: Marathon is a "one horse town" and you will do well to stock up with all your needs for the duration of your stay, or face the 32 miles drive to Alphine. The only shop in Marathon is "The French Grocer" and this is slightly larger than a camp ground store. Also - gas is expensive so make sure that your tanks are full when arriving. Had the camp ground had a pool/spa it would have been very nice and we could probably have spend a couple more nights there. We would come back to this place again.

"Will you be breathing any of the campground air while you are here? That will be $3 per person". This is a slight dramatization of the attitude displayed by the owners of this campground. Everything you would normally get included on other campgrounds will cost you extra here. This is the first time ever that we have had to pay for metered electricity on a 30 amp hookup. If you want a 50 amp hookup you will still be metered AND pay an extra $2,50 per night for this priviledge. The campground is a glorified carpark and it is very noisy since it is right next to a very busy road. Our neighbours paid $43 for an overnight stay which is almost criminally expensive. We paid "only" $15 per night due to our Coast to Coast membership (The campground is a "Good Neighbour Park) but if you want things like Wi-Fi, cable or any of their other extras, you will soon pay way more than $15. If you want to wash any clothes while you are there, make sure that you are all done by 5pm, because then the owner/operator close the door to this facility. Next time we stop in Colorado Springs overnight we will stay at Walmart.

We had just a quick overnight stay on-route. First impression is that this is a very pleasant site where owners are trying hard to make you feel welcome. We were here very much "out of season" so we didn't get to enjoy the full benefit of what this place without a doubt has to offer, but we would definitely stop here some other time. We enjoyed a nice pull-through site with a great view out our front window.

What can we say? This is one of our favorite spots and we have been here 4 times now. This place have all we need and it keeps improving all the time. Latest they have added a "pitch and put" golf course and a brand new miniature golf course. We enjoy the 2 pool and the 2 spa's, plus a very lively bar and snack area between the pools. We can't recommend this place enough and we hope to come back at some point. If you are a golfer - go try the Emerald Canyon Golf Course. Inexpensive twilight rates on a very unusual/fantastic course.

This could be the same campground as is listed under the name Lake Havasu RV Resort, but the name of the one I am reviewing is "Lake Havasu RV Park". This park has an old section on one side of the road and a new section on the other side. We enjoyed our stay here although we would have preferred a spot in the new section. Nice clean facilities and friendly staff. Club house and pool in the new section deserves a special mention. No road noise, no trains keeping you awake at night. It's off the beaten track and still only 10 minutes from London Bridge. We would definitely come here again.

In general this is a nice campground, but it seems like it has a completely "invisible management". The club house, which is nice, is empty and no one use the communal facilities it would appear. People race through the campground at what appears to be close to 30 miles per hour and no one tell them to slow down. It has the potential to be a much better campground than what it is today. Members are trying desperate to sell or give away their membership which is never a good sign. "The magic" of this site is missing, unfortunately.

We have been to many campgrounds all over America and we have seen some nice ones. However, this must be the best facilities that we have seen. On site winery and top class restaurant, best shower facilities and best club house. Pool was unfortunately closed since this is February but this also looked first class. Clean everywhere and friendly staff. For the first time we saw a dedicated RV washing facility with all you need of high pressure jets and brooms (we wish more campgrounds would do this). If we have to pick out anything that was missing, it has to be an outside bench for each site. If you want to see a first class operation go and see this campground.

This is a mainly a very large trailer park for permanent residents. There is nothing wrong with this except this is not what we expected and not what we want when traveling. The "pioneering spirit" is just non existent, and we miss the "casual neighbor" who is traveling him/her self. There seem to be no incentive to get to know "the new guys" because everybody already has enough well known friends amongst the other permanent residents. The RV site is extremely clean. Bathrooms and showers are among the best we have seen, and the pool, hot tub and laundry rooms are in absolute perfect condition. Sites are very small. We traveled in a 40" motorhome and were struggling to back into a site. We ended up fitting in but only after having taken off our towing hitch. With the hitch attached we would be too long to fit. Our rating of 4 may in some peoples' view be unfair, but as mentioned - this type of RV park is not for us. We won't come back. Sorry!!

This appear to be a well organized campground. It is clean and tidy and both toilets and showers were cleaner than the average sites we normally visit. Pool and spa was working and in a clean condition. We had the pull-through site closest to the pool, and we unfortunately had frequent and not very pleasant odors passing our site. We will be back some other time for short stops, but we wouldn't stay here for any length of time because the surrounding area is not all that interesting, although fairly close to Quartzsite.

This is an older park, but OK for a stop on-route. We had expected the park to be noisy, but this was not the case at all. Mostly, long time residents but without looking run down as most of this type of places do. Clean bath rooms and showers. Friendly management. We came in a 40' motorhome, and the place is generally not suited for this. We managed to park between 2 5th wheelers but it took a couple of attempts to get into possition. When sliding out the sides we were overhanging the "neighbourghs proporty" indicated by a line laid down in the gravel.

If this campground had sewer hook-ups it would be a perfect place to spend a couple of weeks. There is a "honey-wagon" going around, but it is a little on the expensive side. On the other hand are the rest rooms in good shape so if you use them you are OK. The Morgan Hill area is soooo pretty and well worth an extensive drive. Gilroy (20 minutes drive away) has enough shopping/outlets to make your credit card melt. Pool was closed for the season while we were there. Don't think it should have been since we had 4 days of 80 degrees. Pool should be closed according to the weather - not according to a date. We hope to be back some day.

We didn't actually stay at this campground. We tryed to make a booking over the Internet, but here it said that 40' RV's could not be accommodated and we, therefore, had to find an alternative site. On the 18th of November 2008 we then went to see the campground, and it appears that around 30 sites will in fact take a 40' RV. The on-site ranger had in her possession a campground map that showed a large number of sites with length 40' or more. The "trick" is to know which of the sites that will take your 40' RV and then book it despite it saying f.x. 32' only. The ranger told us that you will not be turned away as long as your rig will fit in the space you have booked. It sounds like someone in the reservation office need an ungent update. Apart from this, the park looked in mint condition and we would like to stay here.
