This was a hard one to rate. We only spent one night, sandwiched between Interstate-10 and a very busy, very nearby railroad track. Didn't sleep at all. But our site was a nice, level pull-thru with a shade tree. The lady in the office and her husband were delightful and helpful. We didn't use the shower, but I'd bet it was clean. If the railroad noise isn't a problem, this would be a nice stop. This was the most expensive campground we stayed at on a 6-week trip and it was not worth it.
We stayed here twice -- for 3 nights traveling east, then again for 1 night returning west. Both times we had nice, level, pull-through concrete sites. We did not hear highway noise inside our rig. The first time, the grass was very high and the grounds seemed rather unkept -- this was before the rains which made our last stay quite soggy (not their fault). We did not use the pool, dog run, showers, playground, etc. so cannot comment. The breakfast was great -- biscuits & gravy, pastries, waffles, cereal, juice, coffee -- all replenished by a very nice lady. The only reason I didn't rate it a 10 is the "come-and-go" Wi-Fi which surprised us since we were very close to the office and antenna. We would definitely stay here again.
We really enjoyed this park, but after exploring it, think we had one of the best sites. We were in the "new" section. The roads were narrow and winding, but we were near the entrance so didn't have to weave our way between the trees. We were away from the playground and pavilion area. It's a state park, thus devoid of a lot of upscale amenities that we don't use anyway. Decent Wi-Fi was a pleasant surprise. We would stay here again if we could get a site in the same area.
The owners must have looked long and hard to find such rude, obnoxious managers. The sites are very close together and only a few have shade. Our site was pretty level though. During our stay, they had a power problem (overload?) and it blew the electrical systems in three RVs. Their attitude was "stuff happens." The swimming pool looked nice and clean, although we didn't use it. The best thing here is the location in the middle of Bandera. We will never stay here again, since there's a lovely park at the other end of town.
We love this park! Returned for a few days because we remembered it from passing through in 2007. Well-maintained grounds, large, shady sites with picnic tables. Beautiful view of the river where we watched tugboats and barges going through the locks. We were on the side away from the playground and didn't use the restrooms or showers so can't comment on those. Can't rate a "10" because there's no sewer or Wi-Fi.
This is a delightful little park. We stayed here four nights and would definitely return. Very friendly, helpful hosts. Pretty little pond, well-kept grounds, picnic tables, some shade, pretty level sites. Laundry is small, but adequate. Didn't use restrooms/showers. Pretty quiet.
The incessant beeping of the trucks at the cement factory next door, is a HUGE negative here! Highway noise and the train are "normal" sounds, but the loud beeping is not. Earplugs do not help. Don't know about a white noise machine. Wish I'd had one. The park itself is lovely with large, level sites, nice landscaping, and clean showers.
One night is not enough here! Magnificent views, as already mentioned. Small, quiet. I'm not sure families would enjoy it, as there is no pool, playground, etc. But I'd like to reply to the poster who said the W-iFi was a rip-off and only allowed 10 minutes, not so! Wi-Fi is free and we got a good signal the night we were there. They do charge $19.95 if you rent a site by the month. We would definitely stay here again -- in fact, I don't want to leave now.
The resort was designed to include all the amenities: swimming pool, horseshoe pits, playground, clubhouse, showers, etc. But if you don't use those (as we don't), it's a paved parking lot with no shade and very tight sites. Our paved site wasn't even level. You must park your tow vehicle less than a foot from the door to your rig, so putting the awning out is impossible. It is located between two freeways and an enormous refinery: so it's very noisy and smelly. But it's the nearest RV park to Salt Lake City, except for a KOA.
We loved this place! It's a 10 in our book, but if you're looking for restrooms, showers, a pool, playground, etc. this is NOT the place for you. There are only 7 sites, all on the river (and 8 rooms in the lodge), so it's quiet and peaceful except for the highway traffic noise. The owners are fantastic. We would come here often if we lived nearer, and we didn't want to leave.
They boast about their big pull-thru sites, but don't tell you about the narrow, short, unlevel back-in sites in the back. The place has a basic parking lot feel, but is ok for a couple nights, especially since we were gone most of the days sightseeing around beautiful Flathead Lake. We thought it overpriced, but probably not for the location. We will stay on the other side of the lake or in Kalispell next time.
We chose this park from the many in the area based on RVparkreviews. It wasn't the fanciest place we've ever stayed, but it was one of the friendliest and most comfortable ones. The evening campfires were fun when they weren't rained out, and several kids played badminton nearby. The road noise wasn't bad, at least in our site. Owner seems to always be in the kitchen. The cinnamon rolls knocked us off our diet and then she baked hubby a coconut cream pie to die for. We would definitely return since we didn't want to leave in the first place.
This is a beautiful park with wide, grassy sites, huge trees, and flowers everywhere. Folks say the owners are nice but we never met them; the young girl in the office was helpful. Its location, only a couple miles outside Missoula, is convenient. But it's also one of the noisiest RV parks we've ever stayed in -- next to a major highway with lots of big trucks at night, and they empty their many dumpsters at 5:30 AM. We would definitely stay here again, but with earplugs.
Some sites have beautiful lake views -- we were lucky enough to get one (#37). Cabins line about 2/3 of the lake shore. It is a small lake side park, family friendly with nice staff. We didn't use bath houses. There is a restaurant on site that is quite good, if a bit pricey. It is a great location to explore Wells Gray Provincial Park. We would definitely return and would recommend it.
This is a nice, small park -- the only one in Bandon city limits. Central location, but right on the highway and very noisy all night long. It's a gravel parking lot, no landscaping, close to neighbors. Great WiFi though. Nothing really wrong with it, except the traffic noise, but we'll stay at Bullard's Beach SP next time.
This is a great campground, run by the city of South Lake Tahoe. All shaded under huge pine trees. Our site was level. Only E/W, but the dump station was convenient. We never heard any noise from the highway. As someone said, the WiFi was slow, but worked. Would definitely recommend and return.
What a delightful surprise! Almost makes me wish we played golf. We used the campground as an overnight stop, but would like to have stayed longer. Large sites, friendly hosts. There's a "19th Hole" at the golf course and the cook fixes great breakfasts on weekends. . . hear other meals are good, too. Quiet, nice views. No Wi-Fi, but it didn't hurt us to be without it one night. Would definitely return.
This is a great little park, family owned and well-maintained. They also have about 8 cabins for folks without RVs. Restrooms spotlessly clean. Lovely landscaping. Each of the RV sites backs up to a beautiful meandering creek and is shaded by tall pine trees. Friendly, helpful owners. Free use of canoes and DVD/movies. Only drawback was lack of Wi-Fi, but we found we enjoyed a few days without it just fine. Highly recommend it.
This park is amazing. Free WiFi at every site, free cable TV, on-site propane, and FREE laundry facilities. Three buildings with individual bathrooms & showers and laundry plus soft drink machines and ice machines are spaced around the park -- in addition to the office building with pool and spa. They say there is a fitness room but I didn't find it. They let you wash your rig for free, too. All this for $17 which is advertised as a "Stimulus Special." $15 for pop-ups and pull trailers, $17 for 5th wheels and class Cs, and $20 for class As. Best bargain around! No shade trees -- everything is paved or concrete -- huge sites with patio.
We camped here for the Cowboy Poetry Gathering in Alpine. The views are awesome! Quiet -- no pool or playground to attract kids, very little highway noise. We were here a week and only saw the owner once, when she came to get our money. Seemed very nice. The little rec room/ laundry was locked but it looked nice peeking through the window. We will definitely stay here again and highly recommend it. Alpine is a great little city!
This RV park has greatly deteriorated in a year's time. We camped here for two months last year -- the fabulous manager couple has been replaced by six totally inept, unfriendly persons. The birding area has grown over. Electricity comes and goes, as does water pressure. No picnic tables, Wi-Fi only in office. Will not be back.
I can't add much to the previous reviewers. This is an exceptional RV park in all ways -- nearly level, concrete pads, lovely setting in a pecan orchard (except when the trees drip), friendly staff, and fabulous amenities. The clubhouse is a former home and luxurious throughout, with lovely kitchen, exercise room, pool room, fireplace, great areas for getting together, and exceptional book exchange. No picnic tables (already mentioned), but guests are welcome to use the grill, tables, and lovely patio behind the clubhouse overlooking the creek. We've camped here before and will go back again and again.
We planned to stay here one night and ended up staying ten nights due to truck trouble. The manager and hosts were very nice and helpful. Sites are fairly level, no picnic tables or grills although those are available in an adjacent park-like area. Nearby train noise. Good place to be stranded with nice folks, cable TV and Wi-Fi.
Agree with those who said small, close sites difficult to get into -- even with a 30-ft. fifth wheel. Rude, unfriendly office staff. Fredericksburg is a great city to visit, but there are other places to camp.
This is a lovely, small state natural area, away from highways and population centers. There are a few restaurants in nearby towns, but each site has a covered picnic table and there are also picnic tables along the river (in a different area than the campground). Peace and quiet and nature prevail -- nature hikes and wildlife. Very friendly and helpful staff, very nice nature exhibit, small gift shop.
We enjoyed the convenient location of this park. The staff was helpful and friendly. The park was clean and well maintained. We had one of the "new" sites in the front; some of the sites in the back appeared to be smaller and we would have had tree problems with a 33-foot 5th wheel. We would definitely return.
This campground is hidden in the woods, very shady and quiet. Some of the sites are small and at funny angles to the undefined roads and hard to get into and out of. We had to trim some overhanging trees. But the young couple is friendly and trying hard and the park is well-maintained for the most part. They charge $3 extra to swim, a policy we had not run into before. We explored scenic drives in all directions and the park is convenient to Harrison.
Very nice campground, helpful staff, well-maintained grounds. We were not along the river, but that was OK since we used it as a base to visit Indy. We would have enjoyed staying longer. The sites were spacious and it was very quiet at night. Would highly recommend it.
We had the RPI rate of $8. There are several permanent residents, but the park is well maintained. We did not use most of the amenities, but used the excellent location as a base to visit Silver Lake, Pentwater, and Ludington. The site was adequate, shady, and quiet except for the heavy equipment working behind us in the daytime -- think they were creating more storage area. WiFi is available only in the office. We would definitely stay there again.
Excellent value, great location, friendly helpful owners. We used Passport America on Thursday ($10) but paid full price on Friday ($20) so it averaged $15 and was still a great bargain. Small park, very quiet, shady sites. Convenient to all Quad Cities attractions.
