I have been going to the river for 25 years. I have camped at almost everysite except this was our first time and last to camp at KL Ranch camp. I made our reservatons months in advance. We camped in site 94 which was right on the river. The view was beautiful but the camping experience was terrible. There is one road in and the same road out and it is not paved. There is a constant cloud of dust and dirt in the air. The campsites are not mowed or groomed and the tender trees are dried up and starving for a drink of water. The bathrooms are the most disgusting filthy bathrooms I have ever seen. We used our utility shower and other means of toileting and stayed clear of the restrooms. This is not for famillys as we had hoped it is all about getting drunk and bad language. When returning from dinner one night,they had locked the gate and we could not get back into our campsite. We drove around and around untill someone finally came and opned the locked gate so we could get into our site. They proceded to remind us that the gates lock at 10;30. We had returned at 11;00. I have never been locked in a camping area and don't intend to ever be again. Campers beware. The river is beautiful it's a shame greedy people have access to it, who are not putting any money or care into the camping end of it.
Just finished a week at Pioneer Beach Resort.We have never stayed at any campsite at the beach. We were escorted to our site by a volunteer in a golf cart who help us back in and hook up our cable. The cable was awesome and the site were very clean. The family bath house is the nicest cleanest public bath house I have ever used and we camp at many state and rv parks. Almost everyone has a golfcart and I found that if I had one I would have been using it too! The rv park is big and would find a cart to be useful navigating to and from the boardwalk to the beach.You are just a few minutes from town and shops. There is a trolley/van that will take you there for a minimal amount. Next time I will use that too! I thought our location was perfect it could have only been better if we had a corner spot. I would have given them a "10" if they had more palm trees!
