Driving through the sparse traffic on Interstate 8 to Yuma, AZ from Tucson, this is an excellent overnight stay! There is a poorly maintained 4 mile frontage road to get here. There is a small stretch of level, dirt road to get here. Yes, there is sporadic train noise and we like it. A desert town without a train? Come on. It is lush desert. The saguaro are blooming this time of year. The park is tidy, neatly graveled, with roomy pull through sites with patio slabs. There is a pool that is cared for. The laundry is on the honor system. A dollar to wash, a dollar to dry. If you don't want to pay to dry, free clothes pins are there to dry in the free, dry air of Dateland. There is an excellent DVD/VHS library that is, again, free. The book exchange is organized by some one or patrons who know how to alphabetize authors. The rec area is new. We can smell the paint. The bathrooms and showers are excellent. The owners have invested a lot to make this park a great place rest in an intimidating land. If we found ourselves choosing to live in Dateland, we would stay here.
We wintered here from Dec to May. The daily rate reflects a monthly rent of $400 with free electric. A single night is $20. This is a no frills place. The showers are by the livestock barn. You will probably have to move from one site to another depending on events if you decide to winter here. The staff is friendly. The closer to Thurber Hall, the stronger the Wi-Fi. The RV sites are closed during the fair: April 15 through April 25. We will be back here next year.
We were here last year in February. It is still a good over night, no frills park. Dirt/gravel mix sites that are level. The wind wasn't howling this time. They do Good Sam and AAA but you must ask. Bathrooms were locked so didn't bother to enter.
Good Sam rate. A good over night park. Excellent bathrooms and laundry. Two ply toilet paper and antiseptic hand wash. Did not skimp on heat in December. A RV sells and service less than a mile on frontage road. Very high water pressure. They charge $3 for each person over two.
This is a great, newer park. There are many pull throughs and all sites are concrete with modern hook ups. Laundry is only a dollar and the bathroom/showers are like being at home. There are plenty of open sites and deeply shaded sites. The monthly rate is only $350 plus electric. Our rate reflects a good Sam discount. We even got a free newspaper delivered to our site.
This is a Passport America park. It is one of the largest we have seen in a long time. There are plenty of level, gravel pull through sites. The showers are large and heated (we have been in parks with no heat). Laundry is cheap at a $1 a load. This is a good overnight park.
Super roomy concrete parking for semis and large motorhomes. The "free site" involves a game card in a convoluted process where one buys a club card for $10 which the casino matches. Then you buy an additional $5 to game with for a total of $25. This is a good overnight park and we paid the $25 rate.
The rate reflects Good Sam discount. We weathered out the Thanksgiving holiday here. The sites are level and heavily shaded in the summer. The owners are friendly and we enjoyed the Van Buren/Fort Smith area.
The rate reflects Good Sam discount. The pull throughs are very long and you have a choice of gravel or concrete, river front or not, with according prices. It is pleasant to be on the river bank of the Mississippi and watching the tugs. There is free laundry!
This is a good overnight park. There are new owners and the managers are enthusiastic about the owner upgrading the grounds. They are bringing in gravel, revamping the pond, and are going to add cable.
The nightly rate reflects Passport America at a 50 per cent knock off. This is a great place if you want to spend some time in Nashville. The places even closer to the thick of it are $45 a night. The staff is friendly and the amenities are up to par. The pull throughs are long but at 90 degrees, which makes for a tight turn with a tow. We would surely stay again.
This is a great overnight park. Close to the freeway, but no traffic noise. Very large, level pull through sites. Tables, trees, and grass. Everybody with tow vehicles have not bothered to unhook for a quick start in the morning.
This small and tidy park is located on the Henry River where the river is accessible. It is quiet and secure. The owners are very friendly. A fifth wheeler may want to consider the very steep, lengthy, single lane drive coming into and out of the park. Call for a reservation and gate code to enter the property.
This is a nice, very shady campground for an overnight. If it wasn't for cable, there's nothing to do but hike. Also, there is absolutely no sign indicating it's existence. At the beginning of very narrow Old Greensboro Road, drive about 2.4 miles to a heads up street, Carl Durham Rd., then continue to the next road on the right, Spring Hill. The Terrels Creek Baptist Church is on the right. Spring Hill is the entrance to the campground. We only had four cars packed behind us. I figure the locals are used to slow moving tractors, so we didn't impede them beyond patience.
Great campground. It is operated efficiently and the staff are friendly. The bathrooms have a daily checklist and smells of disinfectant. They have a nice book exchange, pool table, and arcade games. Lots of shade.
There are open areas for full hook ups and sites in the deep woods. We stayed here last year and it is a great base for Washington DC tours. We used the train out of Manassas for our first time rail ride. It beats driving to and parking in the capital. The toilet stalls and showers in the bath house in the woods are coed, so the modest might want to place a guard before using. The laundry prices are reasonable.
After spending two weeks at a busy, busy "go to" RV park, it was a relief to stay a couple days here. It is quiet and has level gravel sites. There is no laundry, bath house, or bathrooms. We saw 5 deer in the park and were warned by the owner not to step on the property of a cranky, 92 year old lady. It is a great overnight stop.
This is a great place! The only negative thing I can say is, it is a "go to" place. If you are planning on a weekend: make a reservation. There are plenty of sites with grass, tables, and fire rings, but they fill up quickly. The sites are paved and shady, yet our satellite worked fine. It is absolutely family oriented. We wanted to stay another 7 days, but we couldn't because it was filled to capacity for the Halloween activities over the weekend. When we first got here we were lucky to get one of the last two sites because of the Kentucky RVers Club. It seems this part of the country loves its RV parks for recreation. Previous reviews have mentioned the single lane road leading to the park entrance. It is a consideration. On Sunday morning, the park is backed up with a half dozen rigs using the dump station before they leave. You do not want to try to enter this park in the morning or leave late in the afternoon.
We were surprised by the country road leading to this park. It is 12 miles off the freeway and has beautiful farmlands. The county road is so narrow no centerline stripes are there. The park does exist. It is utterly jam packed and comfortable at the same time. The majority of sites are privately owned. This is a second home for hard working people who want to get away for the week end. The managers are exceptionally friendly.
A good overnight place: 8 sites with sewer. They do have fees on everything: $3 per person over two people, $3 for each visitor, $2 for Wi-Fi, $8 dump station. Lucky they don't charge for pets and showers. Maybe they haven't thought of it.
A very nice, grassy, shady place and friendly owners. We accidentally hit upon this place during the Cranberry Festival, a local fest that draws 80 to 100 thousand people. We were lucky to get two nights without a reservation.
Okay, it is $22 a night for a motorhome pull-through site. If you have a tow vehicle, pay another $5. Those are the rules. This is a state park. And as the government and city/county entities are wringing dollars out of us anyway they can to make up for declining dollars, we will eventually be paying for air. I understand the desperation. What bothers me is will it become the norm? (Sorry for the diatribe). This place is beautiful at this time of year. There are no neighbors. Our dogs have nothing to bark at. It is utterly quiet and secluded. We would stay here again.
This is a go-to campground. We thought we were going to hide out over Labor Day from the crowds. The crowds came here. It is very shady, grassy, and level. The pool has been full of kids. The atmosphere is very laid back. We talked with one family who live in Spearfish who come here for a change of pace. We would stay here for a summer.
This park probably had grand aspirations, but is on the downhill side now. It has been here long enough to have grown nice shade trees. There are probably 60+ sites that are effectively full of permanent people. In actuality, there are only 6 pull throughs. 40' rigs can tip toe into the pull sites. This is great for an overnight. Not to put Gillette, WY down, but this park isn't where I would go to to spend my two week vacation. There is at least one other RV park in town that we didn't get the name of.
You are lucky if you find this park on the first approach. There are no signs. You will see a blue camping arrow on the 437 exit stop sign. Nothing after that until you realize you better call the park. The park will tell you, you are going to Billings. It turns out the park is at the Sinclair gas station by the stop sign. You will pull into a tiny, weary, old park made for 26' trailers. The sites are gravel and level. The electric is good for 30 amps. We are fortunate enough to have a 34', three slide motor home. We had a snug fit. We unhooked our tow and parked it in front as not to impede traffic. There are permanent people living in 26' trailers. It is a comfortable park. Grass but no shade.
Passport America rates. Quiet, tidy, level park with grass. Not crowded; casual dog leashing. Excellent Snake River access for swimming and fishing. Hillsides restrict some satellite TV. There seems to be some competition between Catfish Junction RV and Oasis RV. We have never encountered RV parks abutting each other. One can miss the Oasis park entrance and use the Catfish Junction to turn around in. The Catfish Junction owner doesn't like that. If you fish, you pay 25 cents to use the fish cleaning station at Oasis. If you inadvertently clean your fish at Catfish Junction while staying at Oasis, it costs you $5. Catfish Junction has no sewer but larger shade trees which suggests it has been here longer. Oasis has sewer and smaller trees. Whatever park you stay at, it is a beautiful area. If you have an extra day, cross the Snake River and cruise through Weiser, ID, 10 miles from camp, then drive to Streck Recreation Area, 15 miles from Weiser. You will be able to see your campsite from the other side of the Snake River where the paved road turns to hard pack gravel. We encountered a small swarm of Mormon crickets at the campground, black, and two inches long.
We stayed here last year for two weeks, and it is the same as we reviewed then for this two week stint at $125 a week. We were comfortable here, but it is not everybody's cup of tea. They have finally supplied toilet paper in those giant Texas toilet paper dispensers. The long termers may look seedy, but they are friendly, helpful, and kind. One of the worst places we stayed at was a high dollar park where everyone seemed cold and judgemental. I would definitely stay here than there.
Stockton was not a a particularly "go to" place for us. We have been pleasantly surprised. The gold country has been beautiful. This park has a wonderful channel where there are many sized sail boats. What was unsettling was to see an ocean freighter steaming up the channel no more than 300 feet from our windshield. We loved it here.
Comfortable park. Amenities are a clean pool and jaccuzi. Lots of open land to the south for hiking in the foothills. The only thing odd is the owner's strict minimal days to use the laundry which has some machines that do not work. Many of the long timers go to town to do their wash.
We used the Escapees membership for the rate. Typical desert gravel sites. Very full this time of year. The freeway construction forces one to drive through 6 miles of Tucson city. Very friendly staff and renters.
Passport America, AAA, and Escapees give discounts. Staff are very friendly and sites are gravel and level. Not shaded and permanent people are in the back of the park allowing big rig pull thru in the front. We were warned to watch our dogs in the swamp at the end about alligators. We would come back here with no doubts. Propane for sale.
This place has certainly seen better days. Many sites don't have working electricity and are not level though paved. Bathrooms are rusting out but laundry is nice and cheap. Beautiful fall foliage and many, many squirrels. Very quiet. We liked it a lot and even though in disrepair we would definitely come back. Staff are very friendly.
We stayed for two weeks to explore the area. This was a great rv park. If you want deep woods, you've got them. If you want open, grassy pastures, that too. Not uncommon to see deer passing through. And it is a working farm. They set aside 40+ acres as a cash crop rv park and work the rest of the farm.
Typical, overpriced, over amenitied KOA in nice wooded area. Best thing going for it was the NYC tour. It was great. I paid $16 for the blandest brisket sandwich ever in Times Square. I suppose that beat the $10 hot dog from a vendor that didn't compare to a $1.29 dog at an Arco gas station. I'm also glad I didn't have to pay the $20 an hour parking. Take the tour; it's well worth the experience. I will never go again.
This place is probably the best we have stayed at all summer. It is rustic,extremely clean, and well maintained. There is plenty of grass, shade, and the pond is a delight. It also helps that the fall colors added to the beauty of this place.
Very well maintained, grassy with ponds. We would stay again. Friendly but clannish seasonal people. The low nightly rate was due to a 50% discount with Passport America. Strange rules. Any visitor must pay a dollar for the day, $3 after 9 PM or to stay the night. Only one dumpster for entire park. Must haul dog waste to office or save up a healthy multiple load. Shower rooms take me back to PE class showers. Not for the shy.
Nice place and great 8 acre lake. Only a half dozen pull thrus and were a bit surprised when we found there was only a dump station for sewer. A bit noisy from roadway. We would definitely stay here again.
Beautiful place. Plenty of grass, tables, and shade. Our 34' had to wiggle once to level. Some rigs may be cramped but the ambiance is worth any effort. Free fishing. They make and deliver pizza Friday and Saturday. Free hayrides and a movie on Saturday night. This is a great mom & pop that has matured and been well maintained over the years.
The place was tacky town. All but 3 or 4 sites were full time(monthly). Stereotypical trailer trash. Joe Dirt would have been at home. We were glad to have it as an emergency came up and we had to stay 2 weeks...at $75 a week. That's the best thing about the place. We felt safe but were cautious. Some people asked for $20 that they would pay back on Tuesday. Bring your own toilet paper to restrooms.
Park was overwhelmed during July holiday. Our and many sites were not level after observing other rigs' blocks. Bathrooms were plugged by massive use. We were told the city allowed the crowding. All in all we liked the place. Also, cable was fuzzy as the cable company did not correct lines that were old. Caretaker told us they would be putting in new lines and dish service.
