This is a PA park, which is how we found it. Most of the sites are "seasonal" meaning they have larger mobile homes and/or park models permanently situated. There are just a few sites available for overnight. The site we were in was probably the only one where we could get a signal with our Motosat dish due to the trees. The park is quiet and peaceful and right on the river. Reasonably close to other attractions in the area. Our site was not that level and the power was not that reliable. Think it is 30 amp made into 50 amp, but it worked as long as we were careful. We would stay there again.

For us I've rated this middle of the road. We came thinking we would stay 2 weeks, but the trees are heavy enough we could not get anything with our Motosat dish, so we decided to move on to where we could access internet for the next two weeks. The park is beautiful and it is quiet. However, the sites are so-so in being level. The office was quite helpful, but there was just no way we could stay 2 weeks with no contact with everyone.

Our overall view is that it is well laid out, but pricey. I think $50 a night is a bit much for an RV spot, but the rule seems to be whatever the market will bear. However, the park is well thought out. The pull throughs are curved so there is no 90 degree turn at the end. The back-ins are at an angle. Although close, not claustrophobically so as are so many. Handles big rigs well. Owner is friendly, helpful and was gracious at helping us arrange tours.

Very nice campground. Would have rated it higher, but the nightly campfire smoke nearly ran us off our site. Then on our last day, one of the campground workers decided to burn branches and old picnic tables. We watched him continually throw gasoline from a can onto this smoking pile for 2+ hours. We were in the campsite across the road with our awnings out. The smoke rolled right over.

A very nice state park. Sites all along the lake shore, and laid out reasonably well for privacy. True 50 amp service. Wi-Fi is only available in spaces 4 through 20, which are closest to the bath house where the antenna is. We will come back here when we are in the area again.

This was a nice park and although very large (nearly 500 sites), the sites were spacious and quite roomy. Sites were level and utilities well placed. It is apparent that new growth has begun to replace thousands of trees dead from a hurricane several years ago. It still has a barren look to much of the area. Golf course is nice too.

This park is only 2 to 3 years old so is still a work in progress. We did find it well kept and will stay here again when we visit friends in the area. The owner was working on adding more sites when we were last there. It was nice that the streets are wide enough that we could drive our 40 ft. MH in and turn without fear. Long pull thrus.

This park is actually in Newcastle, OK not Norman. This park is nicely laid out and convenient for when we visit family in Norman. It is probably 80% full time residents, but the welcome overnights and short term and offer a PA discount. The people that own/operate the park are a different sort that you will have to come to appreciate in order to enjoy your stay. We refer to them as the "park Nazi's" because of their demeanor and attitudes. They want to read you the rules one by one and have you acknowledge that you heard and agree with them. They are pretty standard "rules" as far as RV parks go, but you have to sit thru the reading, even when you express that you know, understand them and have heard them before. They also have very annoying habits of checking up on you (and everyone else too), plus a rude tendency to run thru your campsite in their golf carts throughout the day. I realize they own the property, but you would think with the rental you get a slice of time with no one riding thru. We will stay there again as it is the closest place to family that we visit in the area and it is a nicely maintained park. We just grin & bear the owners.

One of our favorite places to stay in south Texas. Great hiking just across the river at Garner State Park and also about 15 or so miles away at Lost Maples State Park. We think this is a great place to just "veg". They offer a PA discount in the winter months.

One of our favorite places to stay in the Hill Country. They now have free wi-fi. We have stayed in spots where it worked and spots where it doesn't. Although a county airport is next door, we have only heard loud (jet) traffic on the weekends and not at night.

Sites were very tight. We have a 40 ft MH and with the slides out, we were nearly touching the picnic table in our patio area, as was the fifth wheel next to us touching it with his slide. We will probably not stay here again as we found the management in the office was surly and not very helpful. There are too many other places around where people are glad to see you come in.

This park is decent, and is kept looking rather nice even though 90% of the parked RVs are permanent residents. Some noise from the road, but not as bad as Interstate noise. I have rated it 5 because although they say they have 50 amp service, it is the "fake 50" that many parks put in when they cheap out and don't want to run another electric wire. There is no breaker for the 50 amp plug and when measured with a volt meter, it is really wired like 30. Our EMS kept cutting power off is why we checked it so thoroughly and we had to move to 30 amp to keep electrical service coming into the coach. We did talk to the office about it, but they really weren't interested that it wasn't right. Their position was they provided a 50 amp plug and that was what we would pay for (no matter that it didn't work). We stayed here to have some repair work done at a nearby facility so it was convenient, but if we stopped here again we would find another place that would let us run two ACs or one AC and the convection oven without popping a breaker.
