The good aspects of this park: Lowest rate in New Orleans, good staff, good cable, 15 min to airport or French Quarter. The not good is: at least two very, very loud trains in the middle of the night, poor wifi, sites close. If you have a large fifth wheel or large motor home do not book on line. This is a small park with basically two roads. The entrance road has plenty of room for RV's and tows, the other street does not. If you are on the other street forget getting out early in the morning as both sides of the street is filled with large pick ups and you will not be able to get out. We will not be back.

This is not a park for large motorhomes. The road in is a one vehicle wide lane. The interior roads are one lane and there are trees to maneuver around. The sites are dirt. It rained when we were there. There was a lake around the front of our motorhome. You are in a forest. Lots of bugs.

The park itself is average. They try hard to entertain the kids. The staff is very good. We had no trouble with the WiFi. But as other reviews have stated the road there off the interstate is about eight miles and most of it is not good. But if you take it around 30 to 35 mph and watch the road it is OK. Our car GPS took us another way which was just as bad.

This is a good park for fishing and boating. Sites were level. Wifi average to poor. Cable fair. Watertown shopping 25 min away. On the first morning we were engulfed by thousands of may flies. When I asked about them I was given a sheet that also included the Canadian geese info and advised against walking on the grass to avoid their dropping. Also advised about the smell from the lake. WE did not have the smell but lots of bugs and geese.

You are way out of town. If you do not have satellite the TV is terrible as there is no cable. WiFi was actually good. Grass and gravel roads and sites.

If I could give this a negative number I would. The park has dirt roads with some gravel at the sites. When it rains it is a sea of mud. There is no way to keep your rig clean. Wifi worked half the time and with no cable the TV was extremely poor. There is miniature golf course for the kids. However half of the holes have plywood instead of Astro turf and the ones with Astro turf are bad. Big rigs beware. It took us almost a half an hour to get into our site due to all the trees. The office staff is not friendly. If you have a reservation here, try to cancel.

This is a new ownership park that also rents sites. The staff here is very good. There is a large pool, tennis court, pickleball courts, and shuffleboard. There is also a lake with paddle boats. Park is located about two miles off Interstate 75 and you should follow the directions on their web site as your GPS may take you a different route. Roads and streets are concrete and sites are of decent size. Shopping that includes Costco, Publix, and Walmart are within a few miles. The park is very quiet with no train, highway, or airplane noise. We have stayed in this area before and found this listed on another web site and this is now our choice when in this area. We are full timers in a forty foot rig and this is one of a very few excellent ratings I have given.

This place looks good but what you don't see can be really bad. There is a bar within 70 feet of the RV sites that has bands on Fri, Sat & Sun nights from 9 pm to 1:30 am. Sleep impossible. Also one of the office staff very rude. Told me when I complained about the poor WIFI that it was the customers fault for having to many gadgets. Also when I complained about the music I was told that it was a resort area and I should expect. The sad news was that the office person told me that the owner of the park was part owner of the bar and knew how loud the music is. And, the big deal about the Ramada was worthless. The pool was not heated and right next to the Ramada is a great public beach with ample parking.

This is not a "Country Club" as they advertise. The pool was closed for cleaning which would not make any difference as they do not have a heater for it, if this was a great park the pool would be heated. All they have is a pool, club house and hot tub, nothing else. The staff is great. The cable has about 20 channels. The Wi-Fi has worked half the time. The water pressure is not good some of the time. There is construction of new sites going on. When you pay the extra for a lakeside lot you look across to a field of weeds and a couple of trash piles. It is thirty minutes to the Gulf Shores Beaches and fifteen minutes to Foley for any shopping. The sites and roads are paved and if you want to relax this is the place. There are other good parks closer to the beach which we will stay at next time.

The $40 rate is based on a months stay. Park Review data is wrong. There is Wi-Fi but it is not very good. This ownership park is very good. Lots to do. You can read about that on other reviews or their web site. Here are some things you should know. You are thirty minutes to an Ocean Beach. Kennedy Space Center 20 minutes. Orland about an hour. I had two problems with the place. First of all, they have not met a tree they don't like. It took twenty minutes to fit our 40 foot between the trees so the slides and door would open. This is not for most of the sites. We just got lucky. A lot of the trees on our site were Pine. Request a site that does not have these as the tree sap is impossible to remove, and the tree droppings make the site a mess. They maintain their own sewer treatment plant. Twice during our stay the odor backed up into our tanks and then into our RV. Make sure you don't dump completely. I left about one quarter full and had no odor problem. But this is a great park, security is very good.

This is an OK park, nothing special. There are few choices in the area. Overpriced at $40 but again no other choices. The pull through sites are level. Good Cable and WIFI. Gravel roads and sites. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Lots of permanent people. Would stay again for an overnight.

As far as a KOA this was a good one. Cable and wifi worked well. Staff was friendly. The park is entirely gravel. Unless you arrive after they water the gravel (we did not) your tow is completely covered in dust. Don't wash your tow before you get here as you will have wasted your time. Roads are wide and sites typical KOA size.

Worst Customer Service I have encountered. I arrived early and was told that my site was full and I had to leave the park. And I was told I could not call to see if the site was vacant and had to wait till 4pm. They did not try to move me to another site. As I tried to leave I saw our site was empty and the park was one third empty. Roads are wide BUT turns are tight. You can tell by the posts they have at the turns and how scraped up they are. Wi-Fi and Cable were good. Sites are gravel. They say they are on the ocean but as you read the entire site you find there is a lagoon between you and the ocean (regulars told me it has been 10 years since they were ocean front) and it is about a mile walk to get to the beach.

Other than location this is not a great park. It looks good till you get in. The sites are small. Our 40 foot touched the bushes in back and the mirrors were almost in the street. The WIFI only works when no one else is on it and the cable had mostly fuzzy channels. Worst of all the sites have some grass and a table BUT the rest is very fine rocks that you bring into the motorhome every time. Also, this is a large park and we were here two weekends when it was almost full and the only activity they had was outside companies brought in food for purchase. You would think in wine country a place this large would have a happy hour with wine and cheese. Suggest you look elsewhere.

This is a park that gives you good access to San Francisco. You are a ten minute walk to the ferry system to San Francisco and there are bus stops close by. The park has cable TV with a few channels. The Wi-Fi is really bad but at least they tell you that up front. There is a small pool on site. The staff is great. They will help with information with sightseeing and transportation. Roads are paved and sites are completely gravel. Sites are not large. Make sure you have reservations as this park does not have a lot of spaces especially for big rigs. Also, follow the directions on their web site.

If you like close sites, barking dogs that the park does not stop, tight turns and the constant cow manure smell, this is your park. Paved roads and half of the sites are gravel and it took three sites before we could level. The park is surrounded by cattle and dairy fields. Lots of cows and lots of poop. We only went outside to get in the car to get away from here.

Cable TV is not good it is fuzzy, and all channels did not work. WIFI is slow and did not connect many times. Owner blocks sites like Fox News and ABC. There are up to fifty septic tank vents pipes about six feet tall in the park. Our site had one on each side,and there was an odor at times. Roads are paved, sites are gravel. Turns are tight; not big rig friendly. Tough to get into the park as you have to make a left turn crossing Hwy 101 if you are coming south. Hwy 101 is very busy.

Very nice park. Wi-Fi did not always work. Site and roads are paved. Small grass area and hedges between sites. First three rows are pull in. First row has full marina view, second row has decent view. The back row has a great Bay view for trailers with large rear windows. This is for fishermen as there is not much else here. Coos Bay is a thirty minute drive. It is also a good place just to kick back for a few days.

I would like to rate this park higher, but I can't. Staff is excellent. Paved roads and concrete sites. WI-FI good, cable fair. Small sites. This is not for Big Rigs and should not be for the very large fifth wheels. The sites are no long enough and they put these really long fifth wheels in sites that force their trucks to be in the street. Since the office closes early and opens at 9 am, these trucks make leaving the park difficult. If the managers would enforce the rule not to park in the street I would rate this higher.

Huge Park with lots for kids. Great Staff. BUT not really Big Rig friendly, very few 50 amp sites. Many sites with sewer connection at the very back of the site, you will need an extension to reach. Cable TV just OK. Wi-Fi worked well. They charge a $6 Resort Fee which they don't tell you and while it is on their web site, it is buried in the site. For $6 you get free mini golf and the bounce pillow, WOW! Fifteen minute drive into Astoria. Next to Fort Stevens State Park. With the hidden fee of $6 my cost was $67 per night and was overpriced. They should show this charge on the web site rather than surprise you when you show up.

This is a great park. Yes the wind blows but we sat out every night till sunset. WIFI and cable was really great. Staff very good. We were in site 76, the one premium site that is closest to the river. It did cost more and they do not honor any discounts on this site. However, you get a large patio area and there is a very large grass area that is for that site's use only. Good paved roads and gravel, lots of gravel sites. Well off the freeway. Will stay every time we go through here.

This is more of a tent camping place. The sites are not level and are mostly dirt. Only a few 50 amp sites and two are "premium" and two in a hole. Roads are full of holes. Does not look like they take care of this place very well. Will never go back.

Sites are too close, WI-FI really bad, cable has humming sound on one third of stations, large hole at entrance, wood chips and dirt at site and tight turns. Not Big Rig friendly. Roads are paved and site is paved with small patio, the rest of the site is a combo of gravel, dirt and mostly small wood chips. This is a mess when it rains and it rains here a lot. Way overpriced for what you get.

This could be a really good park. BUT, if you are coming here using their directions you will see a big red fence with a Good Sam banner. This is the entrance even if it does not say it. It looks like it is a fence around the park, but it is the only entrance. The real sign fronts the street and you don't see it till you are passed. Good luck finding a place to turn around if you are in a big rig and towing. Second no WI-FI except in main building. Third, huge boulders at every turn. Wonder how many repairs have been needed. Forth, their rules. I always wonder why have certain rules and then don't enforce them. The rule of one car per site is not enforced. Near us were at least five sites in a row with two cars or trucks, and some of the trucks were partly in the narrow street. The good part is that the sites are level gravel with a table and concrete pad. The staff is friendly. Probably the best place here, but I think it may go downhill as it looks like a lot of the park is permanent based on what they have done with the site.

Good park. Paved roads, gravel and grass sites. Large space between sites with large trees for shade. Helpful staff. Easy access off the Interstate. On west side of town on Hwy 93, the road to Glacier National Park. There is a Pilot Truck stop at the exit and the park is about a mile north. There is some train noise as mentioned in other reviews, but did not bother us. We will stay here again.

Great Park for big rigs. Paved roads that are wide. Level, long pull throughs. Probably the highest price in the area, but it was worth it. The Wi-fi is OK, but you can only use it 2 hours out of every 10 and the 2 hours must be continuous. At the rate you pay this should not be. The only other concern is that they do not enforce the parking in the street very well. Everyday there were pickups parked in the street in front of their trailers, and they are sitting outside and couldn't care less.

This is a great park. Owners always there and very helpful. Gravel sites, but drains well. Good stop for driving the loop to the Devils Tower. Really good small Museum in town. Easy access to the Interstate. Will be back.

Pulled in and was told that I had a deluxe site that cost $75 when I believe I booked a site for $52. I was told that the deluxe site had a patio, swing and picnic table. The park was full as I tried to get the regular pull through I always book at KOA. But they could not do it. The swing and table were very old. The patio barely held the swing and table. And in front of our site were the tent area. After we pulled in a huge rental truck pulling a trailer pulled in across from us and there went the view we were supposed to have. Never will stay here as I believe they switched me to a different site and could not do anything. Instead of the $52 rate, which is high, I got stuck with a $75 rate.

This is a good KOA. Great staff, clean sites. Roads are gravel, but drain well. If you are seeing the Badlands, this is the place. It is about 25 minutes off the Interstate, but you are close to the badlands. If you come in from the east you actually drive through the Badlands.

OK, it's not America's Best Campground, but it is a really good campground. The Good; close to the Branson attractions but off the very busy streets in Branson, really helpful staff, paved roads, on site do it yourself car wash and good wifi and cable. The Not So Good; sites are close to one another and potholes in road needs filling. We would stay here again.

OK for an overnight. There address does not take in most GPS, so call for directions as there is not a sign on the interstate. They say they have told the owner to put directions on the web site, but he must be too busy. I am always amazed how a few hundred dollars could fill at least the large potholes and this park did not spend the money.

This is really a good park. Concrete roads and pads. WI-FI worked well. Great pool. Very nice staff. The park is being sold again and with that the development should start again. The lake is not as big as the web site makes it out to be, but nice to look at. If you get a lakeside site leave enough room in front, as there is no patio. The Golf Course is a few minutes away and is very good. Twenty five minutes to Pensacola and various beaches. Would return. If you go stop at the Roadkill Café for a decent lunch.

This is one of the best KOA's you could ever stay in. The staff is fantastic. The sites are long and wide. They are grass sites with a concrete patio and picnic table. They offer deluxe sites with BBQ's, patios with furniture and extra landscaping. The pool is large and well kept. They have a miniature golf course and offer a continental breakfast each morning. The only downside is they are close to the Interstate and there is some noise. However, we had our AC on and it was no bother. This is the only place we stay in traveling through this part of Florida.

This park is really nice. Laid out well with plenty of space between sites. All back in sites but no problem for our 40 foot rig. The staff there was really great. Cedar Key does not offer much except maybe fishing. If you go to Cedar Key stop at the Tiki Bar for sunset, it's great.

Great Place. No pull through sites, but no problem with back in's. Roads are wide enough so that we did not have to unhook tow till we got to the site. Quiet park as there are no dogs allowed. You really don't know how noisy some parks with barking dogs are until you stay in one without them. WiFi worked well. Easy to get to as it is close to the end of the causeway. They do not accept credit cards. Only hassle is there is one main road on the island and making left hand turns out of the park sometimes takes time. But, this is manageable. The sites are sand/grass. It looks like they are starting to put in concrete pads for tables and chairs and have about half the sites completed. The RV part of the park is away from the permanent park models so you don't have the early morning traffic with people going to work. Will certainly be back.

We stayed here a week using a PA rate. While the entry road is narrow, we had no problem with our 40ft motorhome with tow attached. The pull through sites were excellent. Great staff at check in. Most of the park is permenent residents in park models. The back of the park, away from the pull through sites, looks like older and run down units, but where we were they were fine. No complaints about this park. However, call for directions, as right now the hwy in front is being redone and you want to come in from the south which may change as they do more work on the road. We will stay here again.

This is not a bad place. Forget the water view on the site. There is some water during high tide, but not worth the walk. Nice staff. Decent space between sites. Big problem getting into the park, if you have a big rig and are towing. There is not a lot of room right after you pull in for you and your tow-we had to unhook. The sites have patio's. Some sites have gravel, but most are just dirt and you need to vacuum every day unless you love living in a dirty place.

Worst place for Big Rigs .Most places are permanent and they build there patio's with covers right next to the narrow streets. Some streets are the smallest I have ever seen. The layout must have been done for the old "Lucy" show 50 years ago. The few beach sites are the nicest but you don't see the beach as they have large sand dunes between you and the beach. Great staff but the park is not for us over 40 crowd - 40 foot that is. Will never go back

I guess I should have known this would not be a good park when their main picture is of the pool. The park has some gravel sites with patios. We were "lucky" enough to be put in the back in sand and weed pile. Bring bug killer to spray around the site. Bring a good broom because every time to go into your RV, you track mountains of dirt and sand. The staff was OK. The girl was nice and the older guy was not. The streets are paved and just wide enough for one vehicle. Will never stay here again. It is not close to anything. Overpriced.

Not a great park for Big Rigs. Interior roads very narrow. Park layout uses every possible place for sites. Some sites very close to each other. Exiting the park is difficult as you need to make a 180 degree turn in a short space onto a state highway. Won't be back

This is a nice park for an overnight. Staff friendly. Pull through site was long and did not have to unhook tow. Not much in immediate area. Park is 3 1/2 miles off the interstate. Follow the directions they give you as some GPS do not know that an exit was closed.

Decent place to stay. Gravel sites. Some sites not that level so make sure you ask for a level one. Staff friendly and helpful. Not the greatest WiFi during peak hours. Sits right on the highway but the noise was OK as we had the heater on and the windows closed. Would stay again traveling through.

It looks like an old KOA. That means you get gravel sites, tight roads, etc. It is off a narrow two lane road but had no trouble on the road. The trouble was the roads in the park. I think this place has new owners. Either way, whoever owns this should spend a few bucks and buy some gravel to fill in some large holes. Probably will not be back.

Good clean park, we stay here a couple of times a year for a week and a night or two when passing through. If you read some other reviews there can be some noise from an elevated train and there are some planes overhead. The planes never bothered us and the trains could bother you if you did not have the AC or Heaters on. However, if you looked at other parks in the area, this is the best. It is right off the interstate and you are within 30 minutes of everything to see,

This is very nice park. Long pull through sties, good TV, and Wi-Fi. Only a few miles to downtown Memphis. This was our second time and strongly suggest you use the directions off their website as the GPS tried to take us another way. Their directions are very easy. We will stay here on each trip. If you arrive before dark you can sit and watch the barges go by as you are right on the river.

Beware of this place.. It would take too long to list the things you should think about before NOT staying here. First, the false advertising on their web site. You would think you are staying on the lake, not true, the lake is a mile away and the park is on a small canal. Next you wonder what is on the other side of the sea wall on the road down to the park. Well, it is a subdivision of homes and most have bars on the windows and doors. That should make you feel really safe. In six days there we never saw their claimed security; they might have been afraid to come out. The Wi-Fi was down more than up. They give you rules to follow, and they don't do anything about violations. Trucks double parked in the streets. When we left we had less than 4 inch clearance. They say quiet hours start at 10pm, yet the music from their bar covers the park till midnight. They say the back in sites can handle a forty footer, I guess that is right, but with the sites across from you sticking out in the street and the cars and trucks in the street, it took us 25 minutes to get into the space. Their rates are really high, and I think they are hurting for business as it looks like they have made long term deals with workmen, who rev their diesels at 6:30 in the morning and drink and talk loud till late at night. On a positive note, the water pressure was fine. We will stay at another place next time.

This is a nice park right off I-10. The staff is very friendly and helpful. One of the reviews mentioned noise from the Interstate. This did not really seem to be a factor. However, there is a truck stop adjacent to the park, so try to get a spot close to the office as the music from the truck stop can be heard all night. We had all the windows closed and could still hear it. What makes no sense is that the owner of the RV park also owns the truck stop. I really don't see the need of loud music at 3 in the morning. That said, the pull throughs are long, gravel, and fairly level. I would stay here again but request a site closer to the office. Rate is Passport America.

This is a nice park. Gravel sites concrete patios and good space between. The Work Campers here are very nice and helpful. About a mile off the freeway. The only thing wrong is that you have to go to the clubhouse for WiFi. This park has been in business for a number of years and they could have upgraded there WiFi system or at least tell you on the web site that you can"t get service at your site.

As we got close to this park saw a sign that their were new managers. What a difference. We stayed here last fall while visiting family. As you will read on posts from that time, the people running the place were not friendly and the park was very run down. The new people are very friendly and within the two months they have been there you can see improvement. There is new blacktop at the entrance which formerly was really bad. Major holes in the roads have been filled. The restrooms have been redone and are operating. They still have work to do but you can see things are better. It is not a resort, but good for an overnight or a few days visit.

Really nice new owners who are upgrading the park. They just added a row of 50 amp service to very long pull throughs. Only suggestion is don't wash your car or RV as the park is very dusty. Had a small problem, and they were there to fix it at once.
