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.
