Hard to know where to begin. While this place has the potential to be nice, it's so poorly managed that you can't tell tell how many of the issues are the age of the infrastructure or the overall management. We have stayed here twice since it's the only thing close to Frisco, but the reservations are pretty worthless. It is a "first come" set up, so if you reserved a spot with water, sewer and 50 amp power and they are over booked (which has happened twice with us), then whoever gets here first gets the spot. Yes they took our money for a deposit and called us while we were in route and said we didn't have a site. So, during this stay we were asked to limit our power usage since it they had so many sites on one circuit that it kept tripping the main breaker. We were also sent to three different sites before we got one that was not occupied. Again, very poorly managed. I'm sure the tent campers are happy with this place but if you have a motorhome pass this place up. It's way past it's prime.

Nice enough place and nice folks. Cash or check only and you can wash your rig one time during your stay if you ask first.

First class resort. Well laid out with it's own beach and marina. Lots of folks review parks and give them "10" ratings just because the folks were nice to them. This one truly earned it. We'll be back.

Good park if you want to hang out near the Kemah boardwalk or the Clear Lake area. Pretty clean, with a nice lady at the desk. Spaces were very tight for a 45' motorhome and pretty close together. It appeared there were lots of folks living here full-time.

There is no way this place is a 10 and the photos on their website makes it look way better than it is. This place looked run down. What little grass they had was not mowed and poorly maintained. When we checked in, they crossed out the part on the site map where they pick up the garbage. We finally located the dumpster. We were hooked to 50 amp power and tripped the breaker several times while pulling about 30 amps per leg. Wi-Fi was slow and not dependable. And you had the worst of both worlds; I-35 in front, a dual railroad track behind park, with a plant on the north side that was the source dust clouds when the wind got up. And of course you couldn't wash your RV, so is was pretty bad. The office looked sad and tired. Nothing about this park was appealing except the location if you wanted to overnight.

Nice folks and easy to get into our pull thru site. They offered good suggestions for helicopter tours and park info. And it was the only park on our 17 day trip that allowed you to wash your RV onsite.

Nice park and good location. We were on the east side and you can hear the truck noise from I-44 pretty well, but it didn't bother us. Looks like they are doing some expansion work. A pool would be nice, but I don't think there is a park this nice anywhere in OKC.

There was nothing "Premium" about our pull through spot. First off, there are lots of tight turns to get in here and we had to unhook the toad to park. Second, the sites were way unlevel, so there was not enough suspension travel in the coach to get level. Third, the site we were in didn't have 50 amp power as billed. We spent an hour troubleshooting the coach for electrical problems after contacting the park people. Then one of the other park guys says, "Yep, that site only has 30 amp service to that 50 amp plug." Would have been nice to know going in. Since I left early the next morning, I called them about the issue; still no call back from them after 5 days. There is no way this park is a 10. Or much more than average.

This park represents one of the issues with this site. It gets both high and low ratings as I suspect the expectations of folks are vastly different. We just finished our second trip to the Virginian and it was considerably worse than the first. The whole place was a giant mud hole and the site we were in was so soft the coach sank into it when we pulled in. Since this is "the only place in town", it should get a high enough rating for its location, but little else makes it worth more than an average rating. The husky guy who tracked us down when we pulled in was gruff about "I tried to stop you before you passed the office" but I pointed out that he had signs posted everywhere about "pulling forward and pulling to the right to check in". He pushed me along enough that when my body language turned to "I've had enough of your crap" he lightened up. This is a prime example of what a lack of competition will get you.

I was excited by how well our late (after dark)arrival was handled and how nice the folks were. This soon faded the next day when it came time to pay up and the day crew took over. I was quoted a rate on the phone, but lots of extra fees / taxes plus charges for kids and then when our friends came by to pick us up for dinner, they wouldn't let them in without charging them as well. Lots of wrist bands to wear and parking passes to display and it was just not that great a place. Very dry weather had the river down a bunch and our stuff was coated with dust, inside and out. We checked out a few other parks in the area and unless you want one "close" to the water, there are others that look better. It looks like they built cabins where the good sites were at one time. Bonus - Stop at Ninfa's Taco stand up at the "Y" when headed toward Canyon Lake. Best breakfast tacos ever, but not much to look at.

This place was pretty nice and they were constantly watering and mowing the grass, so someone got the message. The people running it were very friendly and made several suggestions that ensured we had a good time. We would stay here again for sure. Also, the sign is pretty small, so when you see the Virginian hotel sign, turn on the south side and the park is behind the hotel.

Clueless teenager in the office, but a sharp guy in the golf cart in the park. Nice folks and a clean older park. It was packed when we were there and they were sending folks to WalMart, so make sure you call ahead. Pool was clean and the sites were well kept and lots of green grass. We would stay again.

10% discount with Good Sam or AAA. This was a good overnight place as you can pull in with your toad, leave it attached and pull right back out in the morning. Limo from Big Texan will come get you and all the truck stops are in the area, so fuel / truck wash / services are all close. Nice folks there too.

Nice place in a good area of the park. However, I didn't see any spot there I would list as a "pull thru" as all the ones we saw required you to back into them. And there are wooden "stubs" at the rear of each site that you need to be careful of when backing in with a larger motor coach or trailer. Lots of water pressure, so bring or buy a regulator.

I read the reviews on this place and I don't get it. We love this place. It sets in a canyon between two huge rock spires. No, its not real fancy, but this place exudes the essence of Monument Valley and they show a free John Wayne movie every night. We will stay here again. There is no cell service but the WiFi works well. And make sure you take the drive thru the valley from the visitors center. Best thing going.

We camped here on Memorial Day weekend and it was crazy. Lots of folks, but even more kids and tents. The people who run it were nice enough, but the whole park seems a little tired. And there are huge trees everywhere which can be nice, but these are cottonwood trees and they were doing whatever cottonwoods do, so there were white fuzzy things and sap all over everything. We used it as a base for RMNP and Estes Park, but there may be better places. I know there are closer ones because we passed them going into the park.

After reading the reviews, I was surprised when we first pulled up. It was not as I had envisioned, but there are a couple of sure things. The folks are friendly and helpful. They showed movies outside and gave everyone popcorn. They made the train reservations for us. They hauled us to and from the train. And if you want to see the going and comings of all The Grand Canyon Railroad equipment, then this is the place to be. The train(s) have to pass directly by this place to go anywhere. We enjoyed ourselves in Williams, but none of the parks here are what I would call picturesque. And there are a bunch of parks here with very similar names, so be careful and don't end up in the wrong one. And the WIFI is fast and works well.

Nice park, clean and you can easily walk to the Graceland / Elvis facilities. The WiFi worked very well and the speed was good most of the time. Nice folks checked us in and gave us all the info needed to have a great time in Memphis. Don't blink or you will miss the sign. You also need to know that Memphis is the home of FedEx and there are a gazillion jets leaving out of there around 4am every morning, so if they are taking off to the West, you will get an ear full.

Hands down the nicest RV park we have ever stayed in. They only allow 35-45' Class A motorcoaches. Many sites are owned and the whole place is built around a lake and golf course. Very clean and all sites are concrete and level. Manicured grass everywhere and lots of palm trees (not much good for shade). Great view of the mountains around Palm Springs. If you are looking for a first class RV park, this is the place, but it is not cheap. We arrived very late and the guard had a packet with our information and site map all ready. Good security.

Made a reservation and arrived late and it was all set up as requested. The WIFI worked well early in the morning then slowed to a crawl as everyone started getting up and logging on. There is, however, a strange rule that they had to "overlook" about having an RV older than 10 years in their park. It seems to be a Tempe city ordinance, but even with a '92 Prevost, they had to make an exception. The staff was nice and the park is very clean. It is also in the middle of town under the approach for the PHX airport.

This park is located off of a paved road on a dusty gravel road. Lots of trees to hit on the paved road once you leave the city limits. WIFI never worked, they don't answer e-mail, the sites were laid out in a pretty disorganized manner and the place was mostly used by folks living and working in town. Didn't look like many transients. Even though it is listed as "Big Rig" friendly, we have a 40' coach I wouldn't take in there again. The owners are pretty friendly and helpful.

We camped here in March and they don't have frostless faucets, so there was no water. However, the guy running the place ran the water hose from his mobile home and filled our tank when we arrived. This place is way hilly and we had to be careful of the trees when getting our coach parked. Wild turkeys all over the park and very quiet and peaceful. The drive into Eurika Springs is very twisty and hilly.

This place is way nice. We camped here in March and it was plenty cold. Only a few folks there, but the staff was out and about testing the WI-FI and they got us all situated. They had the only WI-FI I have ever used that worked well and fast. They also have a really nice wash rack that will accommodate even the biggest rigs. Easy access to the main drag at Branson.

Very nice park, well maintained and very clean. When we made the reservation, the lady gave us the name of several boat rental places on the lake that would deliver a boat right to the RV park's dock. Very handy.
