The park sits one mile off I-5 so there is no highway noise here. Big rigs coming in will have an easy drive to the park from I-5 and the road in the park is smooth, paved and wide with no sharp turns. 50amp full hook-up pull-thru sites all have a good size level concrete pad with grass on each side. There are large trees between each site that must be negotiated when putting out slides, awnings and getting a view for your satellite. They also take up much of the grass area where you would put out chairs and grills. There are no picnic tables or fire rings. Power/water/sewer stations are together on their own concrete pad at the rear of the campsite making for easy hookups. The park is kept very clean and well maintained. Free WIFI worked very well as did Sprint phone service. Bathrooms and laundry were clean, staff was friendly. There are lots of long term residents in the back-in sites but their areas are very tidy.
This quiet park sits just 10 minutes from the bay on foot. It has a smooth paved road that leads to level gravel sites easily accessible by big rigs. The pull-thru campsites sit on the edge of a large grass area giving them a very open feel. There is grass between each site, a little wider most than most parks, with picnic table and fire ring. Plenty of room for 4 slides and an awning with no trees to block your satellite dish. Free WiFi worked fine as did our sprint phone and 3G. Grounds were clean and well cared for. Bathrooms and laundry were also clean and maintained. Most of the park is filled with full timers, so there are some very old, unsightly rigs surrounded by clutter, but the residents were all friendly and quiet.
While traveling thru Idaho we came upon this great little RV park that is also called “Down by the Depot” in some internet searches. It sits on a secondary road in town between two tall mountains and has a wonderful stream running thru it. We pulled our big rig (40ft) in and backed up to the stream with plenty of room to park our toad in front. There is a grassy area between each 30amp full hook-up level gravel pad that has room for awning and slides. There are no picnic tables or fire rings in the park so you will need to set up your own. Getting satellite will be tricky. If you back up to the stream you will need to set out a mobile dish in front of your rig, if you park on the road side you should get reception from your roof mount. There is very little road traffic during the day and hardly any after dark so it very quiet. Bathrooms and showers looked new and very clean. There is no laundry. Owners and staff were very friendly and helpful. A few small cabins sit on the opposite side of the creek and many of the sites looked great for tenting. There is no sprint phone coverage in the area, but they do have free WIFI. It only works at the pub on property but that’s not too bad because the “City Line Pub and Restaurant” is very popular with locals and travelers alike and you can have a local brew while checking your email. Also, “Trail of the Coeur d’Alenes” bike trail, which is 72 miles long, runs right by the entrance to the RV park, and if you ride 11 miles to Kellogg you can get a great lunch at the Hill Street Depot.
If you are new to big rig RVing this campground will be very difficult for you, but if you are comfortable with maneuvering 40ft or more I would say this place is just fine. The park is in Spokane Valley, about 20 minutes east of downtown Spokane. Its sits far enough off I-90 that there is no road noise but expect to hear the train and whistle. The road around the park is gravel, very smooth but very narrow so big rigs watch your corners. The sites are all level gravel pads that are plenty long enough just not very wide. The small grassy area between each site is filled with large trees and power/sewer hook-ups that sit right next to your neighbor's picnic table. The trees can make putting out your slides and awning a challenge as well as getting a clear sky for your roof mounted satellite. For big rigs, row “C” has a mix of 50 amp full hook-ups and water/electric only that have wider sites and a more open southern sky. Bathrooms, showers, laundry, and park grounds were all clean and well kept. The campground's free Wi-Fi worked well as did our Sprint phones and 3G.
This park is a good location to tour Flathead Lake with Kalispell just 20 minutes away and glacier National Park about 1 hour. It sits behind a small motel on Hwy 93 and has some road noise during the day but is pretty quiet at night. There is a paved road thru the park leading to level gravel sites with concrete patios, picnic tables and BBQ grill. Two rows of 50amp full hook-up pull-thrus fill the middle of the park. They are long enough for big rigs, toad un-hooked and have lots of room for slides and awnings. Utilities are enclosed in a small fenced area for each site; they are well placed and easily accessible.
There is no Sprint service in the area but the free park WIFI worked very well. Bathrooms, showers and laundry were all large, very clean and well maintained. Only small trees between campsites so no problems getting your satellite to work. Nice set up for large groups at their covered pavilion. Staff was very friendly and helpful with great local knowledge. Price reflects passport America membership.
This park is right off the highway but there is a green belt that reduces the noise considerably. There are 16 pull-thru 50amp full hook-ups that are long enough for class A and toads. Sites have a picnic table but you must ask for fire ring. Some have large trees that could obscure your satellite so check at the office. The campsites are a little narrow but workable. There is no sprint phone service in this area or anywhere in Montana, UGH! The parks free WIFI is very slow so just be patient. The road around the campground is gravel with level gravel sites and a patch of grass/weeds between each. Besides the long pull-thrus there is a mix of sites to suit just about anybody. There is a long term area with old trailers and some pretty unsightly rigs. Restrooms, showers and laundry were all clean. Owner and staff seem to be working hard getting the park in shape for the season. The campground is right next to the visitor center that has several miles of paved walking path. If you have time after touring Butte you should drive the Pioneer scenic highway, well worth the trip!
This KOA has been taken back by the owners and they are putting lots of money and work into getting it back into shape. We stopped in for an overnight stay and found it clean, quiet, and easy to get our big rig into and out of our campsite. The gravel road around the park is smooth and the sites all look level. There are some tree branches hanging down over the road that the owners said he will be cutting. All sites are 30 amp shared utilities, most with full hook-ups. Picnic tables are at every campsite and you can ask for a fire ring. The park is very treed so getting a clear sky for your satellite can be challenging. Our sprint phones and 3G did not work in the park but their free Wi-Fi worked well. Bathrooms, showers, and laundry were clean and the new owner and manager were very friendly. The park is easy to get to and far enough off the interstate that there was no road noise.
If you really want to take your big rig out of town, this is the place. It’s on a small hill overlooking a beautiful a valley surrounded by mountains with the only sounds coming from the wildlife around the park but to get there you must be willing to drive 2.5 miles down a very dusty dirt road. The road is hard packed and fairly smooth so the drive will be easy but you should unhook your toad or it will be totally covered in a thick layer of fine dirt. Once there you can either blow off the dirt or use a California duster that they will loan you. We took our 40ft there and settled into a nice site with plenty of room for slides and awning. All campsites are back-ins with a picnic table on a concrete slab. You park on level gravel sites with lots of grass around and some large trees. The campsites are a mix of 30 and 50amp, vary in length and tree cover so plan accordingly. There is no Sprint service in the area and they offer no cable or WiFi. The owners and camp workers are very friendly and helpful. Bathrooms, showers, laundry and pool were all clean and well maintained. They also offer a weekend breakfast and potluck dinner. Your closest resupply town is Mountain Home about 25 miles away.
This is a great big rig stop over while traveling I84. It’s easy on and off the highway but far enough away that there is little traffic noise. This is a no frills campground that’s on the rustic side but the bathrooms, showers and laundry were all usable. There is no WIFI here and our sprint phone and 3G did not work. The road around the park was smooth gravel with long level pull-thru gravel sites that were easy to get into. All the sites are full hook-up 30amp with the power/sewer station in the middle but the water is at the rear and can be long stretch for your hose. There is a little grass between sites and plenty of room for slides and awning. There are no trees to obstruct your satellite. All campsites sit across from a 300 yard driving range that is part of the park and creates a great view out your dash. The park is not staffed during the day so when you get there just stop at the office, get a registration form and map, pick any site then put your payment thru the slot in the office door. Escapees price was 25.50.
We stayed here because of its easy on and off to Interstate 40 and its close proximity to a Freightliner Oasis where we were having some work done. The paved road in and around the park is rough but there are no tight turns. Their 50 amp full hook-up pull-thrus in front is a large gravel area where the biggest of rigs and toads can easily pull in and out. You might find it hard to level in some of these sites which all seem to be rear wheels low, making it hard for us diesel pushers to lift our rear end. There are a few trees in this area so let them know at the office and they will get you a space with an open sky for your satellite. Free Wi-Fi worked well as did our Sprint phone and 3G. Bathrooms, laundry, and indoor pool were all clean and well kept. Staff was very friendly and helpful. There is some road noise but it was not intrusive.
This campground sits between exits 1 and 5 along I-35. Either exit takes you to a bumpy paved road leading to this park that backs up on I-35. With the windows up and air on there is no road noise, but windows open and you can hear some highway noise and a train. The road around the park is paved and the sites are level gravel. There are a variety of site choices but if you want a 50amp spot long enough to park your big rig and toad without unhooking you will need to get a water/electric only site. They were plenty long for our 40ft class A and Jeep but have no picnic table. All sites are full of stickers and goat heads, so beware. There is no WIFI or cable, but Sprint 3G and hotspot worked well. We did not get a chance to check out the amenities. Read the rules when you arrive, there are several that will get you kicked out without a refund. It is sparsely treed so no trouble finding open sky for your satellite
Less than a mile off Interstate 49, keep a close watch for the park sign on the right side of the road. There will be a gravel road with a small park sign and it will feel like you are going the wrong way. The campground sits behind a truck fuel stop with trailer parking in the rear. Despite its location the park is quiet with very little truck noise. We drove our big rig and toad into a long full hook-up pull-through site that was level gravel. The park is very basic, no picnic table, fire ring or amenities except free Wi-Fi that worked well. The restroom and showers were quite old but clean. There are some big trees between sites so pick accordingly for your satellite dish. Also, the hook-ups are at rear of each campsite making it a long stretch for your sewer and power hoses if you don’t want to unhook your toad. The staff are friendly when they are around. The office has short hours so just find a site when you get there and catch up with the staff later. This is a good overnight stop along the I-49. There are several fast food places within walking distance so you don’t have to unhook your toad.
This small campground just one mile outside of the Crater of Diamonds State Park has only 12 RV spots and a few tent sites. Even though it sits right on Washington Ave, there is very little road noise. All sites are back-in with full hook-ups but not all will accommodate a big rig. Each level gravel campsite has a picnic tableand some have fire rings. Bathroom and laundry were clean and well kept. Free WiFi worked well. Sprint has no service in this area. The staff is very friendly and gives classes on how to look for diamonds in the State Park. They also have some tools that they will loan you for your dig. This is a nice place to stay for a visit to the park.
This park is right off Interstate 4 so there is some road noise but it not bad. If you’re a big rig like us, 40 ft class A with toad, know that this is an older park with narrow paved roads that can get a little tight around the turns but is doable. The longer you are the harder it will be to level because the paved pull-through sites are all nose up. Each site has a small concrete slab with a picnic table on it that is located toward the back of each campsite, not ideal for a class A, next to your neighbor's sewer hookup, so your picnic table sits only a few feet away from it. No fire rings. Most pull-throughs are wide enough for a big rig with 4 slides and awning but may not be long enough if you’re 40 ft+ with a toad. There are a few large trees in the park but plenty of open sky for your satellite. We did notice a problem with dogs off lead and cats being let out to roam around, so lookout for dog poo and cats spraying your tires. Bathrooms and laundry were clean. Staff was very friendly and helpful.
Don’t let the construction on US 19 stop you from turning into this adult RV park. It’s large and once inside you hear very little to no road noise. We called around looking for an RV park in the area that had full hookups for our 40ft class A with 4 slides and toad for a weekend in February, and they were the only ones that said they had room. They showed us a level back in (no pull throughs in the park) grass site with a concrete patio, no fire ring or picnic table, but long and wide enough that we had no problem settling in. The ground is soft so pads are a must. The road through the park is paved with no sharp turns or close trees to make it difficult for big rigs. Few large trees to obstruct the satellite dish. Bathrooms and laundry were clean as were the grounds. Even the many seasonal and long term guest sites were kept clean and tidy. We only paid $30 a night with our Good Sams discount; all the other parks we called were charging $50 or more.
If you’re traveling down Interstate 81 and need a stop, or if you’re looking for a destination, this is a wonderful place to stay. This large gated park is on a peninsula surrounded by Lake Ontario complete with its own marina. This is a great place if you’re a Class A of any size because the water front lots that surround the park are all pull-ins so your windshield looks out over the water, beautiful! The park has two sides, sunrise and sunset, both are equally nice. The road around the grounds is hard packed gravel with no sharp turns or close trees and easy in and out level gravel sites. Trees line the waters edge and some are scattered thru out the park but few will block your satellite dish. A farm house was converted into bathrooms, showers, laundry, TV room, game room, and play room, all clean and well maintained. Sprint phone and 3G worked well. Free park WI-FI was slow and limited, but you can pay a small fee for faster Internet. Staff was friendly and helpful. We pulled our 40ft Class A with 4 slides into a lake front spot that had lots of room to spread out in and enjoy the water just remember, you’re on lake Ontario, so never leave your awning out unattended. The park also has a lot of rec facilities and hosts functions.
The drive to this park in a big rig is very doable and it is a great location for exploring the Adirondacks. Within the park are 4 long rows of 50 amp full hookup with cable sites that will accommodate large rigs, some are gravel most are dirt, but all look level. We were given a site on row C, which faces the tent and cabin area. This row is nice for a class A because you’re not looking right at another RV, but into a wooded area and if you are really lucky you might even get a spot of sky for your satellite dish. but the whole park is very wooded so don’t be disappointed. The road around the park is hard packed gravel with some large pines close to the edge, but nothing that can’t be easily navigated in a 40 ft class A or 40ft 5th wheel. Sprint does not provide service in this area, but the free park WI-FI worked just fine from our campsite. Bathrooms are well maintained and staff was friendly and accommodating. This park sits next to the Ausable River and there are walking trails that go a beautiful flume waterfall, a must if you stay here.
If you like wide open spaces this is the park for you. Don’t let the short bad section of SR66 keep you from enjoying this farm turned RV park, it is worth the stop. Most campsites sit looking out into a large grass field that is kept mowed. There are some large trees scattered about the field and between the sites. The gravel road coming into the park is hard packed, smooth and sites are mostly level grass, but some may prove challenging with the slope of the hillside. If you’re a big class A with toad you should unhook at the office as you might be driving over a slight slope to get to your campsite that has a picnic table and fire ring. There is lots of open sky so no problem getting a satellite signal. Sprint has no service in the area, but the free campground WI-FI worked well. Bathrooms at the office were clean, but the bathhouse and laundry at the lake are in an open style building and are very buggy. There is a swimming area at the lake, but no life guards. This park is very quiet and there is no road noise. Seasonal campers keep their sites clear of a lot of garbage which gives the park a clean look. Owners are very friendly and helpful.
Most big rig drivers will go straight for the pull-thrus in a campground, but they are not always the most desirable spots. There are two rows of 30/50amp full hookup pull-thrus in this park, some longer than others, but all are side by side shared pedestal. They are parallel to Route 115, so the road noise, especially trucks using the engine brakes, will be constant. They are mostly treed with lots of shade so getting a satellite view may be difficult. The road around these campsites is hard packed gravel and so are the sites with easy in and out. These spots would be fine for an overnight or for the driver that hates backing in. But the best campsites are at the top of the hill. A narrow gravel road past the office goes up onto a forested ledge with huge boulders. There are 5 level full hook-up back-ins that face east to a clear sky and each site is separated from the others by tall trees and huge boulders. We backed our 40ft class A with 4 slides in to the shady site 81 and got DirecTV and privacy. There was a fire pit, picnic table and room for the awning and chairs. We didn’t get any road noise up there. The bathrooms and laundry were clean and well maintained. The front office staff was friendly and helpful. The grounds were nicely groomed and the staff raked each site as the RV’s left. No Sprint service in this area and the park Wi-Fi works best near the office, but gets slower and less reliable as you get further away. This park is worth the stop, even if you can’t get a spot up the hill.
The road into this park looks in bad shape, but take it slow and you shouldn’t have any trouble getting your big rig in. We eased our 40ft class A with toad over the ruts, up the hill and into a long level 50amp full hookup pull thru that had plenty of room on each side for our 4 slides. There are no shade trees in the lower area, but that just makes it easy to get a satellite signal. Sprint phone service is not in the area, and we could not get the parks free WI-FI to work. Showers, toilets and laundry all were clean and well kept. The staff is friendly. There is some road noise, but it won’t keep you up at night.
When you enter this park the parking area to register is on the side of a steep hill. Big rigs should pull up to the left side of the flag poles and park there to avoid the steep tight turns in front of the office. The road around the campground is gravel, well maintained, but can be tight in areas if you’re a 40ft class A with toad. A lot of the park is filled with long term and seasonal quests, many with permanent porches, sheds and satellite dishes nailed to trees. This makes the place look more like a travel trailer park than a campground. There are only 6 shaded 30/50amp shared pedestal full-hookup pull thru sites for large rigs, everything else is back-in. If you want some shade and are willing to maneuver into a site, you might fit into one on the hill but it is very treed so getting a satellite view will be a problem. Some of the power pedestals may be out of reach for your power cord up there, if so, ask the office for an extension if you don’t have one. The staff is very helpful and will loan you a 30 amp cord to use. If you don’t need sewer and want an easy back-in with open skies stay in Violette’s field, a water and electric only level grass yard. You will have plenty of room to maneuver a big rig into place without any obstacles. The bathroom, showers and laundry are all clean and well maintained. Sprint has no service in the area. The free park WI-FI worked fine near the office, but got slower the further away you were.
This is a very pretty big rig park with lots of grass and some shade trees. The paved road going into the park is narrow but very smooth. The campsites have a gravel pad that is covered by grass and hard to see, so do your best to stay on it. If it has been raining the ground here is very soft and trying to cut a corner getting in or out of your site with a big rig can put you in the mud and possibly stuck. The 50 amp full hookup pull-through sites are very long but not quite level, so a little positioning may be required. If you need a southerly view for your satellite ask when checking in as some sites have large trees near them. Bathrooms are old but clean. Sprint has no coverage in the area. The park provides Wi-Fi for a reasonable fee and it worked well. The owners are friendly and keep the park looking great.
This park has a large field for recreation in the center, and the campsites are all around it giving the park a nice open feeling. The big rig 50amp full hookups--there are only 16--are all together on one side of the park, and they are very easy to get in and out of. Length and width are good and the hard packed gravel is level. Only small trees are in this area so getting a view for your satellite is no problem. If you do want shade, the other side of the park was bordered by mostly water/electric 30amp in tall trees that would accommodate large rigs. Bathrooms, showers, laundry and pool were all clean and well cared for. The park grounds were also very clean, no trash or dog poo. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The park is a good way off the interstate, but the lack of road noise and the great night skies make up for the drive into town for supplies. The 50 amp power was not steady and was rejected by our onboard surge protector so we used the 30 amp instead. The only downsides to this park were the very poor Sprint phone and 3G reception, and we were unable to connect to the park's Wi-Fi. As of our stay at the end of July they have repaired the road ruts and trimmed the branches. There were no uneven surfaces at the entrance when we arrived. We drove our 40ft Class A (12ft 5 inches tall) down the entrance road without hitting any branches.
The road leading to this park is narrow, winding with low hanging branches, so take it slow. There are also some ruts and potholes that you may want to steer around. We drove our 40ft class A with toad down this road and by being careful we had no problem with it. The park has well maintained hard packed gravel streets with grass sites that will require some tight turns to get to them. Each site has a picnic table, fire ring and was bordered with shrubs or trees. The 50 amp full hook-up pull-through sites had no overhanging trees to block your satellite dish. Sprint 3G phone and WI-FI hot spot worked well. Bathrooms were old, in need of a remodel and not very clean. There were three dumpsters right next to the horseshoe pits that did smell. There is a swimming area at Sandy Pond that can be accessed by a short hiking trail. The water is clear and cool. Staff was very friendly and helpful. This is a quiet park with no road noise.
This big rig friendly park has hard gravel roads leading to level gravel/grass sites. There are no sharp turns or low branches in this park, making it easy to get to any campsite. The trees do cast some shade, but none should affect your satellite reception. Most pull-through sites are very long and wide, we had plenty of room setting up our 40ft class A with 4 slides and awning in a 50 amp full hookup spot. There was also lots of room left for parking our toad as well. Our sprint 3G phone and hotspot worked well. Bathrooms, showers (coin operated) and laundry were clean as well as the pool and pond swimming area. Long term residents’ sites were also kept tidy. This is a very quiet park with no road noise. There is a prox card security gate at the entrance.
When coming in from US209 on Hollow Rd there are two paved driveways at the park entrance, take the first one, the second is a private drive that doesn’t connect to the park. You will find ongoing renovations and landscaping when you enter so big rigs use caution. Office staff was friendly and helpful. We eased our 40ft Class A past the office on a hard packed gravel road to one of the 50amp/water pull-thru sites that was level gravel with grass, picnic table and fire ring. The site was a good sized and we had no problems with our 4 slides and awning. Medium trees are scattered through out the 50amp/water sites but few are big enough to interfere with your satellite. Sprint 3G phone and hot spot all worked well. The bathrooms were clean. There are very few full hookups in this park and all are back-ins, most of the park is 30amp/water. There are two dump stations in the park, big rigs use the one in the back. They also have a pump out service for longer term stays. We had no trouble with our rig, Jeep in tow getting to the back dump station and out of the park, but go slow as there are close trees on the road and some are leaning. We were only there for a quick overnight stop and didn’t explore the parks amenities so we cannot comment on them.
This campground is in a good location to explore Cape May but, because of the tight turns and overhanging trees, this would be a difficult park for new big rig drivers. The entry way into the park is narrow with a brick pillar on each side so swing wide with your big rig when going in. Our 40ft Class A was fine on all roads leading to the park so you can avoid the tolls on the New Jersey turnpike. It is a large campground but only about half the sites are available to RVers for rent and the rest are occupied by permanent travel trailers. Of those sites to rent, two thirds are full hookups and the rest are power and water sites only. The roads in the park are hard packed gravel and the sites are level grass and gravel with a nice space for your table, chairs and fire ring. The trees are great for shade but make it nearly impossible to get your satellite to work. Sprint phone barely showed a bar and our hot spot was like dial-up at best. Bathrooms are large and clean but the showers were coin operated. Laundry room, pavilion, office and pool were all clean and well maintained. Staff was friendly and helpful. There are a multitude of planned activities and there is a snack bar near the pool that serves fast food and ice cream.
Lots of renovations are going on in this campground, but few seem to be finished and none are finished well. The paved road around the park is filled with potholes, cracks and then turns into a rough gravel road. There are speed bumps at extreme angles across the road that jars your rig as you cross them even at low speed. A few gravel sites are level but most are uneven with washouts going thru them. They are putting in new 50amp power stands in some sites but the water presser is very low and has a lot of iron in it. Our site had water and power on one side at the limit of our cable and hose and the sewer on the other side at the limit of that hose. When our neighbor dumped sewer it bubbled up from our connection. The bathrooms and showers are sorta clean but only partially refurbished. The laundry room is new, yet not finished. Wi-Fi is very weak. The pool looks to be the only amenity that is finished but needs more daily attention. The pool is open to the public and was always crowded. Parking for them was along the main street which stayed lined with cars. Long term RVers fill most of the park with old dilapidated travel trailers and 5th wheels. Many have accumulated junk around their sites and they have built wooden porches and walkways. You’re not given a brochure when you check in with information or rules about the park which accounts for the off lead dogs running around and owners not picking up after them. Golf carts are driven through the park by small children without any adult supervision. People walk and drive through your site at all hours. There is little attention paid to cleaning up trash, cigarette butts or maintaining any landscaping around the camp sites. We will not stay here again
The I-85 construction including the exits, makes going to this park's website for directions a must. Do not trust your GPS! The gravel road in the park is hard packed and level as well as the front pull-through sites which are quite long and wide. We had no problem leveling, setting up our 40ft Class A with 4 slides and awning. There was plenty of room for our toad to stay hooked up since we were only staying one night. There are no shade trees in this area which makes setting up your satellite easy. Along with the 50amp full hookups, you get a picnic table and fire ring. Bathroom, laundry and pool were all very clean and well maintained. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Sprint phone, hotspot and 3G worked well, did not use the park WiFi. Even though it is right off 85, there is no road noise. We would stay here again.
This park is in a large open field with a gravel road leading to a few sites. The gravel parking pads are narrow and not very level. There are no fire rings at the sites and only a few scattered wooden picnic tables. There is a covered pavilion and small playground set in the center of the field. We got our 40ft Class A leveled with some difficulty using our jack pads. Getting a satellite view was no problem as the only trees are the ones that surround the field. This is one of the few RV parks in the area where you can get Sprint phone and 3G service. Bathroom and showers are OK but not cleaned daily. There is also a coin washer/dryer. The owner is friendly, helpful and has lots of local knowledge about the area. He does have a rule of no drugs, alcohol, or firearms allowed in the park and he doesn’t take credit cards for payment. There is no road noise and the park is very quiet except when the train comes by. The tracks run along one side of the park and when the train passes the engineer blows the horn, sometimes often and long.
This is a big rig friendly park with large level campsites and roads with no sharp turns. Bathrooms and showers were clean, and the park well kept. Phone, hotspot and 3G all worked fine. Satellite was hard to get because of all the trees, but sites #12 and 13 will work with a portable dish. If you don't need satellite, site #9 is great for a large class A. Pull straight in and your dash with look out into the woods, a wonderful view.
This is one of the best RV parks we have stayed in while in Florida. Everything in this park is clean and well maintained. The staff is great and very helpful. They offer a lot of activities for many different interest. Even though snowbirds winter here, it does not look like a trailer park as other RV parks in Florida do during the winter. The sites are kept tidy with no sheds or junk accumulating around them. All sites are on level concrete pads with a picnic table and plenty of room for your toad. There are small trees but nothing large enough to block your roof mounted satellite dish. Free Internet worked fine as did our sprint 3G phones. Big rig access was good with no tight turns for even the largest rigs. Diesel truck stops as well as a Home Depot, Walmart, and Cracker Barrel are all close by. We stayed here in our 40 ft with 4 slides and did not feel squeezed in, we will definitely come back.
This is a very active KOA with something going on every day. You also have the Pinellas bike trail right out front and a long bayou out back for fishing and kayaking. Although they have sites for big rigs you may find getting in a bit tricky, lots of trees shade almost every camp site, some with cement pads but most are just sand and grass which can make it challenging to get leveled. The interior roads are narrow and you may have to navigate some tight turns for a 40ft class A. Finding a patch of sky for a roof mounted satellite to get through can be difficult too. Sites are not very large especially if you have 4 slides and also want to put out your awning. Sprint and 3G worked well, but you will have to pay for WiFi. Bathrooms, hot tubs, pool, laundry and rec room were all clean and well kept. You will notice more than half the park is full of permanent snow birds, they call it the 5/7 scheme. They live here for 5 months, and then the park lets them store their rig on the same site for the 7 months it is unoccupied. This makes parts of the park look more like a mobile home park than a campground. The sites become littered with sheds, sunrooms and potted plants and there are scattered unused antennas and satellite dishes. The prices are much higher in the winter, 97 dollars a night.
This will be our third stay at the park and every time we come we find it clean, well kept, with nice amenities. The owner and staff are very hard working people who take pride in their park and yes they did build it. We have always found them friendly and helpful.
If you just cannot make it past El Paso without stopping for the night, and you really should try, this park is fine for an over nighter. It sits right off I-10 on the east side of town, but construction can make it challenging to get in and out. There are lots of full timers but the short term sites have their own rows, and there was plenty of space for our 40fter and tow. The laundry, bathrooms and indoor pool were clean. Staff was friendly as were the full timers. We couldn't get the free Wi-Fi to work. There is road noise from I-10 itself and the construction that is going on. What I liked about the park was the separation of dog owner sites that were at the East end of the park. The sites at the west end of the park were dog free. So no yapping when owners left their dogs outside or alone inside. And no side stepping landmines or scraping dog waste off my shoes.
Forty three dollars for a 30 amp gravel site with no picnic table is a little much even with the free cereal and doughnuts in the mornings. This seasonal park is looking rather run down and is in need of a makeover. It is far enough off the highway to eliminate road noise and only a far off train horn could be heard. Staff was friendly and helpful, bathrooms were clean yet shabby. We would probably pass them by next time we our on hwy 40.
This park like others that are in a downtown area is one half trailer park, one half rv park, boardered by a major hwy on one side and train tracks on the other. Except for the distance train horns this park is very quiet and very clean. The rv sites are shaded by large pines and there is a nice size grass yard between each. The sites you may not want are the ones that sit next to mobile homes, your front door opens right into their porch. We stayed twice and because of our roof mounted satellite dish, there were only a few spots with a southern exposure. In site 45 we were able to shoot over the roof of the mobile home and in site 54 we hooked up backwards and shot thru a gap the trees. WiFi didnt work in site 45 but worked great in site 54. laundry and restrooms were clean, staff was helpful.
This park was clean, tidy, with a very friendly staff.The sites up front are 50 amp with plenty of room for big rigs. The sites on the river are 30 amp and made for smaller rigs but we had no trouble putting our 40 foot Class A there. You just have to be careful of the sewer connections, some are in the middle of the sites. Bathrooms and laundry are clean. Wi-Fi is only at the office. We had no trouble getting satellite TV, but had no Sprint phone coverage. Road is hard packed gravel as are the level sites. Lots of tent camping under the trees near the river. We would camp here again
We have been members of Thousand Trails for less than a year and have been to many of the parks. The overall quality of the parks is poor and we have been very disappointed. This park is the exception, though. It is the best Thousand Trails park we have been to. The sites in phase I are huge and you sit back to back with your neighbor. There aren't any trees, but you wont have any problems getting a satellite TV signal or putting your awning out. The park is clean and well kept. The only negative is that some of the older Thousand Trails members that we met weren't very nice.
This is a great place to boondock. We stayed in our 40 ft class A with no problems. Gravel road and the sites were level. Had lots of room to spread out in the grass, and much less road noise than the other RV parks. You'll find a picnic table and fire ring at the sites, and clean flush toilets at the pay booth. Paying your $10 is on the honor system when you come in, but there is camp host to help you out. Across the street is a fire wood stand that has the best deal in town. 5 or 10 dollars, again the honor system, will get you a big bundle of dry wood with kindling to put in your fire ring for the night. Enjoy!
This is an older park and it shows. Price reflects Good Sam discount. Park was clean but needs attention. Lots of road noise. Gravel roads and sites. Green areas and tent sites were well cared for. Fine for an overnight stop only, but if you don't mind boondocking for a night go to the airport park.
