The last review is very accurate. It's a lot of money for what you get. Apparently, the park changed hands in the last year or so and the previous owner hadn't done much in years. The sites are rough gravel, but they had a tractor out yesterday leveling some of them. They're a bit close as well. Many water spigots leak. Temps dropped to 19 at night once in a while so I made sure to fill the tank and roll up the hose. We didn't use the showers/restrooms, but although old, they were well maintained. Not much room for dog walking except for empty sites. The staff do a great job meeting your needs. Get here early...it fills up fast. Unbelievable the number of rental units on the road. They've got you because it's the only private park in the area and it's only one mile away from one of the most fantastic natural sights in the world with 3-5 million visitors a year. Try the GC Jeep morning tour for the best all around tour of the South Rim. We're not hikers or bikers, yet Scott made it seem like we saw it all. Only one gas station in town and the diesel pump is old and works slow, poorly, and it was expensive at $4.29 a gallon. We'll stay here again, but not for a while.
An excellent state park, electric and water but no sewer. No problem, we were there for only 3 nights and they have a 2 lane dump station you can enter from either direction. The staff are friendly and very helpful. Sedona is 17 miles away but the hills surrounding the park are almost as wonderful. A hidden gem is the Blazing M Ranch just outside the park which offers a dinner and cowboy music show that's just awesome...and affordable.
We must be at the wrong park. There may be people here full time, but it would be expensive to stay here. The rate is Good Sams. The people who stay here for the winter come with their boats and ATVs. The lake is huge at 8,000+ acres. So are the fish. We ate at Dillions built entirely on floats including the marina! They squeezed us into one of the few pull throughs for 2 nights so we could visit w/friends in Sun City. The pool is great and they have a very nice dog park with w/grass. The sites may seem small because they are fenced in. Well definitely stay here again and hire a fishing guide and go fishing when we come to visit.
The rate is Passport America and includes $8 for electricity. We came to Rodeo to visit a friend, knowing the area was remote. When we asked about campgrounds, Rusty's was recommended. What luck! A great place with huge sites and a fantastic view of the desert and mountains. The area draws bird watchers and amateur astronomers. There is no exterior lighting because it's not needed! The sky is bright by itself and a joy to sky watchers. We will stay here whenever we visit. Make sure you gas up before you leave I-10, and get your groceries as well.
This is a very nice rv park. Nice people run it. Sites are gravel and level and spacious. They take PPA. Plenty of room to walk the dogs. We had no highway noise at our site. The only negative. San Antonio is over 30 miles away to the east. The town has all the amenities including a Super Walmart. There are dude ranches in nearby Bandera where we'll go horseback riding.
It's brand new alright, and there are a few issues. Sites are a bit close, and it is dog friendly, but you have to exit the property and use the road or a rough field nearby. Biggest issue is access. The 1/8th mi. entry road is very narrow. It's almost one lane. 2 big rigs could never cross paths w/o getting in the dirt. Security is tight w/ locking automatic coded gates and turning on to the road can be a problem. The area is surrounded by rough industry. It's a more than adequate park, though.
The park more than met our needs. We have 3 Newfoundlands and we had plenty of dog walking space. We had a big rig site with a concrete pad. Not much going on in Carthage other than the TX Country Music Hall of Fame/Tex Ritter Museum, which was excellent. Spent 2 nights there on our way to Houston.
Rate cited is Passport America rate. More than adequate. We had site 51 near the dog walk and dumpster. We have three Newfoundlands and they loved it here. Small restaurant on site. Excellent food at reasonable prices. Fantastic owners and staff. Beautiful area. Table Lake and of course, entertainment all around. We'll be coming back here again.
Very nicely upgraded over the last couple of years. Yes, it doesn't have cable...that I know of. Some long timers can subscribe separately. If you have a mounted dish, you might find that your site will have trees that block the signal. Bring a remote dish with you and you'll be fine. Local channels are usually limited to local news, religious and Hispanic programs. I don't speak Spanish, but I wish I did, because some of the programs look quite enjoyable.
This was the nicest KOA we've ever stayed at. It's pet friendly, but they don't tolerate barking. They have a lovely fenced in dog park. Lion Country is right next door and it is an excellent attraction. The lions roaring had us, and the dogs spooked for the first couple of nights, but we got used to it. They've got loads of different species and hundreds of animals there. A must do.
It's a smaller mobile home/RV park, completely renovated, surrounded by a residential/car dealership neighborhood. They just opened a beautiful fenced in dog park. It has a nice club house and exercise bldg. It's really for snowbirds, not short term visitors. It's not conveniently located to many of the local attractions. Those living there love it, but we ran out of things to do the week we were there.
We came for a week and decided to stay two. The park was more than adequate, but the trap range shooting some evenings and the weekends were bothersome at our location and there were planes overhead from the airport. They have plenty of activities that were very enjoyable. Long term campers were very nice if not a bit clicky. They have an excellent pool, club house and activity center. They say they have a 40 pound limit on dogs, but we have 2 Newfoundlands at 120 pounds each and we were welcomed with open arms.
