I would have given this campground a 10 except the water and electric hookup for our site #7 was on the wrong side. However, I loved the site as it had more space compared to other sites and it was a waterfront site. Staff friendly and helpful. As others have mentioned there are many seasonal campers and locals who leave their campers. Wi-Fi was great! My Verizon PC Card did not work there except for one night. AT&T cell coverage good. We were able to get Satellite TV at the site. The only downside is location, as it's a 20 to 25 minute drive to Salida. Compared to other campgrounds in the area it's the best we found. We would camp here again.
Some sites are close together and some sites have some space. Limited over the air TV stations, satellite reception good, but for some sites reception could be an issue. AT&T cell coverage great and Verizon PC Card received good signal. As previously mentioned there are street lights that create a lot of light pollution and even shine in your camper at night. Interior roads are paved, but narrow at times. Nice hiking trials in the park and great bird watching. Electric and water pressure were good. No road noise here like you have over at the State Park. However, during this time of year it's duck hunting season so there was a lot of noise from the guns. Didn't realize it until I was wakened by the gunfire the first morning. Kind of got use to it. It's closer to go to Jasper for shopping and restaurants. Big Thicket Preserve is nearby: lots to do in the area.
Nice quiet campground with very nice park host and rangers. Fee includes park pass. No TV unless you have satellite. Only negative is not much privacy between sites. Had site 6 which was nice but sunny and out in middle. Next time would pick a site on the other side of the loop. This time there was a Casita group that had filled the campground. Great place to see wildlife.
Large sites, but not very private. With Good Sam Discount site was $22.50 per night. We had a back-in site on the lake. Entrance is easy to miss especially heading South on 59. You need to look for the red billboard for the Antique Mall an immediate left at that sign. If you are coming north on 59 there is a blue RV camping sign. This was a great location for visiting family in the area, but not where I would choose to camp typically. There appeared to be permanent campers in some areas of the park. The park was very quiet. I would stay here again.
Large sites, but not very private. Plenty of room after you unhitch to park your truck as most sites have paved apron. Great hiking and biking trails, and there is geocaching in the park. Also, the park is known for bird watching. Restrooms were clean, but location did not seem convenient to the camp sites. My Verizon PC card did not work at campsite 127 and my AT&T cell phone coverage was poor to non-existence in the park. Friends in a campsite a few sites over had no AT&T service. Rosenberg is about 15 miles away for groceries, shopping, and restaurants if needed. I would definitely stay here again, but not during hot weather.
I probably would have given a higher rating if the lake had been up and more of the hiking trails were mowed. This park was closed for a while and has re-open and has the potential to be a great park. Cell coverage is spotty. We started in the Cedar Creek camping area where cell coverage was good (AT&T) but Verizon PC Card had no signal. Moved to the Bent Tree Camping area had spotty cell coverage, but Verizon PC Card worked. The Cedar Creek area has some waterfront, view of lake,and other sites. This area had lost a lot of trees because of the drought so the sites are not very private. Bent Tree area (equestrian sites) is more private. The electrical was good in both areas. The water pressure was good too, but I heard a couple of people complain about the water pressure. One of them was giving her horse a bath and the pressure from the water hose looked fine to me. Great hike and bike trails. There is a kids' fishing pond that the park stocks with catfish. I would return, but only in colder weather because of the humidity. Lots to do in the area too.
Stayed 6 nights in a back in site. First campground I stayed at where they let you reserve which site you want which was nice because I asked for a wide site with shade, which I got. Glad I did as some sites are very narrow. Saw several large MH having trouble getting into their sites. Water, sewer, electric all good. Laundry room okay and wifi iffy. Friendly staff. Access to the river is not easy we accessed between a couple of cabins that were empty, but it was a little steep to get to and from the river. Good location for exploring the Durango & Silverton areas. Would stay here again.
Camped one night in travel trailer, there are no facilities here. Owners are nice and helpful, but there was very low water pressure. Electric was fair to poor. Mostly long term folks here. River area looked run down. Okay for an overnight stop.
Rate $40.46 for 4 adults included Good Sam discount. Campsite 16 was a little small for 30ft travel trailer. Pull through sites near the river looked better. First campground where they got my reservation wrong, but luckily I called about a week before we got here and got the dates I needed. My main concern about staying here again is the lack of amps. At times there was not enough power to safely run the AC. Good location to town and clean restrooms.
Great location for visiting Niagara Falls and the surrounding areas. As mentioned in an earlier review the town of Lewiston is worth the visit. I liked the campground because of the location and setting (off the beaten path and trees). Stayed 3 nights, but would have stayed a week if I had more time. The price is for 3 adults with a KOA membership discount. The laundry room was spotless and the the staff was great. I would have rated the campground a 10 if the sites were a little wider and there was cable. TV reception is very poor. Verizon PC card worked great. I would definitely stay here again.
Paved and concrete slab for sites. Laundry room was clean and conveniently located. There was road noise from the interstate in addition to the noise from a neighboring business. We would probably stay here again as a place to stop for the night.
Rate is with a Good Sam discount. I would have given this park a 10 if it had not been for the road noise. The road noise may have been due to the fact that road construction was taking place out front of the entrance to the park which is something the park could not control. The staff at this park is excellent. They will help you make tour reservations and overall great. We had an issue with the gray water value and their maintenance guy was willing to take a look to see if he could help. I call that going above and beyond the call. The sites were level and clean. The location of the park was convenient to all the activities in the area. Wish we could have stayed longer. The only other negative is their sign is mainly for the River Boat Cruise and if you do not pay attention you will miss their name on the bottom of the billboard and miss the entrance.
A good campground for stopping for the night. The sites were a bit close together, but fortunately we had great neighbors. We were in site 44 that was up by the road so we heard road noise and were in the sun. Some of the sites towards the back had trees with good shade. An easy in and out place. Would consider staying here again.
Stayed here for a week and would go back in a heartbeat. The only negative was that our site 66 was a little unlevel. The park was clean and quiet with a friendly staff. The restaurants in the area are pricey so you may want to bring groceries. Park is well located for visiting the Tetons and Yellowstone. You may want to allow extra days to acclimate to the altitude. In addition, the park is an easy drive to Jackson. The rate included the discount for having a Golden Age Pass (benefits of traveling with Mom). The lake is close by for enjoying too.
A lot of the sites here were close together, but the staff was friendly. Laundry was clean. They have DVDs that you can borrow as satellite reception is limited in some sites. Had to ask for a table for our site as they do not have enough tables for every site. We would stay here again.
This is the second time we have stayed at this park and will continue to use this park as a stopping place on our way out of Texas or coming home. The park is clean and quiet with a wonderful relaxing atmosphere. A great place to ride bikes as there is a park next door. View of lake is nice. Some of the sites are close together, but I think you find that at most campgrounds. The restrooms are lacking, but we use the one in our camper. The staff is always friendly.
It is a great place for overnight! I have stayed here twice and every time the staff is friendly and everything is clean. It is out in the middle of nowhere, but a great stopping place. I would consider staying here to check out the sights in the area. There were plenty of cotton tails and road runners this time. My aunt actually thought she would be able to feed one of the road runners. We never had one get that close.
A nice campground with lots of pine trees. Sites are a nice size. Good place to go if you just want a place to chill. The pine smell was a little strong for me. There's a nice activity center. A great place for walks and biking. Has cute gray squirrels with white strips along the edge of their tails and lots of birds to watch too. A nice golf course across the street. Easy day trips to Taos and Red River from here. Staff was very friendly.
A very nice campground with wide sites. Kind of spoils you. We stayed in one of the few pull-through sites. Has clean bathrooms and a laundry facility. Did not have a chance to check out the other facilities here. Sites were all gravel, but level. Be sure to look where your electrically hookup is as you may need an extension. Luckily we had one. I would give this campground a 10 if there were some trees for shade and not made to feel as though we were less for being there in a small camper 25 footer and only staying a few days (stayed 5 nights). The staff was friendly, but could have given more information on accessing the river. The river level was low during our stay and where it looks like you are suppose to access the river was very steep and rocky. However, if you cross the bridge over the creek and go around I found an ATV trail (looks like someone had just drove over the grass a few days earlier) to the river that was easier. Great place to stay to see the sights around the area. Need to spend at least a week: give yourself sometime to acclimate to the altitude. The mountain views are wonderful. Be sure to have something to tie down your awning or just do not bother putting it out. Wind comes up fast here. Would definitely stay here again.
