This is not my most favorite type of park. It caters to weekend families. This means, campfires, golf carts, loud radios, and barking dogs. But having said that it's OK for a day or so--just don't expect to have peace and quiet. It is easy in and out and well set up.
First used this park in my 38 ft motorhome in 2008 and now in my 45 ft motorhome. This time I had a super site. You will be side by side, but site is long and plenty wide. Just a very nice and well set up park. They used to have breakfast also but did not see it this time.
If you are a one nighter they put you on the hot top with full hook ups. It's not bad and very easy in and out and quiet. If you are here for the season they put you in your site. I like it as a one nighter but would never spend the season or longer. Just to big and jammed together.
As noted 3 sections. We were in back in open pull throughs. Sites are level but the sites start even to the road and as you go down the road the sites are higher than the road so some of the further down sites have steep approaches and exits.
Group rate. Pull throughs are big enough for 45 MH. Now the bad stuff. I was here in 2008 and power was so low it tripped my surge protector. This time I was with a group, and over 1/2 of us had power issues that were so bad we just unplugged and used our gen sets. One of our group was an electrician and used his test gear on circuits. He was not impressed. Also turns around entry are tight and per usual tress will scrape your coach. So not much improved or fixed since 2008.
Group rate. Nice park. If one is on the front row of pull throughs at the side of the building know that the left turn to leave can be tight. So swing wide or maybe go up a row or two and then swing back. Pull throughs are wide enough but could be longer so the car does not hang out the rear of the site. Exit to road has a steep up grade that some coaches or trailers with long overhangs might drag so stay alert when you leave.
This campground is old and tired. Rate is based on group caravan. My site was supposed to have 50 amp but the plug was removed. Wi-Fi was OK for me. The coach next to me went to dump and the camp sewer line was plugged. Not pretty.
Not bad not great. 30 amp and back-in site made for less than thrilling stay for a 45ft RV. And, yes the de-barking mill is still at it. After a while you stop wondering when the helicopter will take off and realize it's the mill.
It looks rough when you first drive in but it gets much better. All sites are treed, but if you tell them you would like satellite reception the owner will lead you to sites that will work. Now if none of those sites are left then you will be out of luck. Real nice park with knowledgeable owners. The store out front also has food and they deliver.
As noted in my previous reviews I like the new big rig section, though some sites are pretty unlevel, they moved us which was nice but what about a little gravel to fix. The entry still requires dodging trees. Still it is a good big rig bet..Can't remember what we paid thus the $1.
OK I'm the one to throw cold water on reviews. Good is reasonably easy to get to and all trees are trimmed up for 13 ft coach. 45 ft coach can get around but you are in the trees and on a humid hot day it gets real sticky and with all the AC units on power was low. So OK but not great. It was dry but I can see how after a rain it could get real gooey. Some crushed stone would be a good idea.
Level site, easy to get to, street and trains noisy until about 10 PM then quiet till 8 AM, and paved. The center island with coaches parked around it is OK if not busy. If busy it could be a real test of parking skills. Not busy night we were here. How ever with oil boom and lack of parks in area, might just be best option in area.
Here on a rally but stayed extra night so that is price shown and it was a super site. Super site do to patio all else was average and on gravel. Entrance can get a little confusing as no entrance or exit signs so you may be coming in while people are going out. Had nice stay but some roads they send you down to get to site need trees trimmed, or your coach will trim them for them.
On caravan so no idea of cost. Hard park to rate. Bridge is scary but at 13ft cleared and as noted listed at 14 ft. Fair number of long term RVs. But it was ok to get to and into, and sites level and all works well but it and location will not win any awards for beauty. So it is good but utilitarian.
Here on a rally so no idea of cost. We at rally had many 45 foot rigs with cars, so it will fit big rigs. So not sure why other poster was told he would not fit, unless only small sites were left. OK park but not great. Not sure if I would return or look for other parks. It is old and the office a little disorganized.
Old campground that has been rebuilt with about 1/2 as many sites. Roads and sites are gravel but unlike some all gravel campgrounds they did not use different color stone to delineate roads and sites, so never sure if on site or road. We were here for a rally and then extended over Memorial Day. Owners were nice and we enjoyed our stay. No cell phone or MiFi, but they had Wi-Fi. OK for a 45ft coach and car, and we would return.
Old and tired. Glad one of the pull throughs were empty or else would have been a royal pain to get to pull throughs in back. Stay as far left as you can before you enter as entry is narrow and has no room to swing. Pluses were that it was a level 50 amp site and owner explained what they do and where you go during bad weather. Would stay again but not my first choice if there were more options in the area.
Not a great place. Pull through very unlevel front to back so had to switch to a back in. Was OK, but not the most level. Trees need trimming. Just the usual old park that needs work for todays newer bigger coaches.
This is a hard one to rate. Owners are trying to update and improve and seem to be doing OK at it, but it still is an old KOA with a real tight turn by the office. If you are a regular you can take the back gate to your site and then go to the office by car or on foot to check in, but if in your coach stay as far as you can to the right when you get to the office as you have to go left and clear the rec room. Very do able just stay to right. It is in the woods so watch for limbs also, particularly when going around playground in new section.
Yep, it is a parking lot with pedestals. But it has security, it is clean, and easy, assuming you follow signs, in and out. When heading east it also is on the correct side of the river to avoid rush hour.
Older, small but neat and clean park. They have the pull throughs down below and they are easy in and out. We like owners, park, and his RV dealership. You are on crushed stone with concrete pad so only a 9.
This is an older park. It has many seasonal and longer stay rigs. It allows golf carts and has activities for children. So on weekends it is busy and active. Look both ways when walking off your site. Did have a Frisbee bounce off the coach but dad took it away after he saw it happen. The usual walk through your site stuff. Most long term sites were in good shape, though some did look their age. An OK time but would look for a more quiet location. We were here for a rally so had no choice. My car and 45 ft rig just fit on site. Note for dogs, the TX stickle burrs are what you have for grass.
I gave it a 9 for ease of entry and use. Yes, it is a parking lot, but it is a clean and level one that is easy to get in and out of. All back ins and if you do not want power you can park on outer fences for free. Just drive in, pick a site, and go pay front desk. When I was there the metal pipes blocking sites were not locked so just move them and back in.
Likes: Near NOLA, site big enough, office nice, bar on deck with food nice. Dislikes: narrow roads with vehicles parked in road. Tight turns. With 80,000 miles on my RV I do not need an obstacle course and test to get in or out of my sight. They say no parking in road, but they need to enforce it and widen the turns; dodging a gas pipe line and a bath house is not fun. Since on crushed stone/shell I would give it an 9 with the hassle factor decrease I will give it a 6.
We were here for a rally and found it nice. We came back a week later and it was as nice as before. Depending on where you park you may have to go by your site and go around a turn around and come back. The turn around was well designed as our 45 ft plus toad went around it with no problems. Do be aware that office is a stickler for the cancellation policy and probably the early or late arrival charges. We came in a day late due to the good weather where we were and the tornado warnings for them. Still owed for the day. It is what it said and didn't bankrupt me but had hoped the weather would have been taken into account. The park is still a 9, but weekends may be noisy during high season with families packed into RV's.
Nice people in office. It is an older park with cement pads, but the ground around them can be very soft, so watch your turns. Not tight but not spacious either. It is an older park that is well taken care of. OK for a couple of days
It is new but I question if the designer had ever been in a large RV. First when you enter park, a left turn, you see that the exit lanes are on the right side. They want you on the left/drivers side. Not an easy turn and since we are taught to always stay on the right it is something you don't expect so you will end up parking and blocking the cars parked for the office. Don't feel bad everyone does it. Since it is faded paint on drive you won't see it any ways. It needs to be reversed. Roads are paved but sites are crushed stone. Nice mess when it rains. The pull thru are built into a slope and are not really level. They are plenty long enough that a little more stone and effort would have made them level. The facilities are nice and sites are wide enough and set up well. Fix the level issue and this park is a 9. It is a shame. I would stay again but might try the back ins.
Nice new park. Last time we stayed gave it a 9 and will stick with it. The turn off Rayford is tricky as the cars will go all the way to corner thus making it hard to do a right turn. If you can straddle the zipper on Rayford Rd before turn and hope no cars are there on Geneva Rd. Trees on county road can overhang so watch out for them..
Stayed here in 2008. Not much has changed. Same managers and same nice park. It is in SW of Houston so Galveston is easy to get to. Sugarland is nearby for dining and shopping. We did have an issue with a not level site, but were moved to a better one with no problem.
It is new and nice, however the sites are not level. If you have a short coach you won't notice it but if your coach is long you may end up with your wheels in the air. We had to move once to find one we could get level in. The first site had my right rear tires in the air as it side sloped so much. The class A behind us in the second site had air under his front wheels.
Clean and neat park on the river. It is a city park run by a private company. On way to site we had a power line crossing the road drag on our roof. We are 13 feet tall. They know it is low but power company or city has yet to fix it. Trees have been trimmed back, but be careful as some major limbs still hang out. Very quiet mid week but probably gets louder on week ends. Looks like fair number of seasonals but all were in good shape.
Not my most favorite park. It had the usual crushed stone and low hanging tree in middle of road. Site we were given was very unlevel. Should probably have complained but by moving around I was able to get level enough so slides worked and tires were not in the air. What was frustrating is that some new crushed stone would have solved the problem. Just frustrating that owners won't take the time to check wear on the sites. Once again a smaller coach would not notice the unlevelness. The pull throughs were also side by sides; not my most favorite. Probably would try across the street next time.
Paved wide streets and level crushed stone back in or pull throughs. Side by side power hook ups so you are tight with your neighbor and strange sewer hook ups make for interesting stay. But it is quiet, easy to get to, and not overly costly. Not a bad deal in a city lacking space.
Nice paved sites but boy are they packed in. I had a pull through but a tree limb was in the way of pulling to front of site so talked to desk and of course they have never had an issue before. When they came to see limb I found out why. I was told that the corner at end of the row is so tight that most 45 footers just back out and then hook up and leave. BUT they get an 8 because even though sites are narrow and not really long enough they did come out and trim tree. I could have pulled through but do to corner I backed out.
It is new, big, and nice. Sites are concrete and roads are blacktop. To be picky the sites were not the most level but very doable, Wi-Fi was very weak in outer edges, and power not rock solid as it fluctuates a lot and did trip my surge protector once or twice.
Old KOA. Sites not bad. Heavily treed but satellite worked. Good one night stay. They have some very nice open sites for big rigs but we stayed in an older site and it worked for our 43 ft full wall slide rig.
Nice well set up park. Mostly trailers and families but very quiet at night. Only draw back to a 10 is everyone has a smoldering fire so air gets a little smokey. Other than that it looks like a great park for families and children. And nice stop for big rigs with adults for a day or two.
No idea about price as it was included in rally fee. Good stuff is nice pool and minimal trees to block satellite dish. A big rig will be able to move around easily. The entrance looks bad but I and others did not scrape bottom as we came in. But the sites can be very, very off level. It is an old park trying to get fixed up but it has a ways to go. Depending on what site I got I might come back.
Price was included in rally fee. This is a first in over 150 reviews, I will say nothing good about this park. Our rally, 30 plus coaches had reserved sites with water and sewer over a year ago and they basically sold some sites out from under us requiring some people, me, to not have full hook ups even though they paid for them and expected them. Their "I'm sorry" and $5 off the bill just does not hack it. Now for the facilities. Gravel roads and gravel sites, 50% seasonals, not all sites have full hook ups and most sites will not get satellite service. Not to mention most seasonals have golf carts. So lousy service and too much dust from constant golf cart traffic does not make a resort experience. This is not a resort by any standards. It is an average campground at best.
Doable for 45 footer with many slides. OK overnighter BUT voltage ran 127 to 133 in the evening and overnight. Kept tripping my surge protector so finally just by passed it and hoped for best as I needed my AC.
Here on a 2 day free visit that included a low key sales presentation. Older campground with 30 amp service on grass. Had to dodge a mud wallow to get to site. Not impressed. Just not what I look for in an RV resort.
Were here for a rally and were in 100 acres section. All is on gravel with wide enough sites and roads. You are in the trees and that means bugs and no satellite TV. It appeared very tired and in need of some major updates. I understand it had flooded earlier this spring but not all looked like new damage. I would stay again if in area.
This is an older park that has added a very nice pull through area for big rigs. Very smart. I stayed at the State Park last time and find this better suited for large, tall, and multi slided rigs. As noted, you are on the Naval Air Base flight path and they are loud.
What I liked was the fact that they have a new pull through section for today's big rigs. They left the older section as is and thus smaller rigs that want shade can get shade and a cozy feeling and we, in bigger rigs an easy in and out, and satellite TV. The entrance road when coming in does require you stay alert. It was obviously not designed for a 60+ foot rig. You get to dodge trees as the road swings around them. The trip out is a straight shot.
I liked the park. We were on road heading to coast of Virginia from Michigan. It was easy in, site level with good hook ups, and roomy enough for a full wall slide. If I used Wi-Fi I can't remember how it worked so it was probably OK. My thought after getting settled was: what a nice small park. It was perfect for overnight or extended stay if in area. No bells and whistles, just comfortable.
This is a hard one to rate. The new clubhouse is nice. It looks like the seasonal lakeside site could be nice but you can't go by them as they are in a separate area with a locked gate. So what do you get for a site as a short stay. Concrete pad with gravel on either end. The site was level but you go by the site to register, un hook and then wind your way around buildings to get back to your site. I would stay again but I have been in much better for much less and a few much worse for more money. I guess it is just an average older park with a new clubhouse. The entrance road is narrow, though straight, and if you meet another coach you both will have to use the grass.
Used it twice in Oct. and felt it was a good overnighter. It still does that job, but seems as though more permanent units and a little less neat and clean. Still probably would use it but will look around for another stop.
This was a nice overnighter and worked well. Grounds were really nice, but as an old KOA the sites were close together. In summer with tree foliage out and cars parked on road it would be a tight fit for todays 45 ft full wall slide rigs, but doable.
Third visit and first since 2009. Still a great overnighter or more. Really easy in and out. I liked the RV repair availability on site but the new building really doesn't match any other buildings and the half buried RV (their version of the Cadillac Ranch) didn't do much for me. But it still is a great park for an overnight or longer. Regarding the wind: You are in west TX on the plains and wind happens. They do have a wall around the park and that helps some.
A tidy well set up park. Next to Coachlight RV dealership. We had a free week and thus low price. A good park to tour area. Since we were there they had the destructive tornado in Joplin. I am assuming no or little damage to the campground but it probably will be full. The dealership had put a tornado shelter into the dealership and the camp hosts are trained to get you in the shelter in case of bad weather. I wish more campgrounds would take the time and money to do this.
Easy in and out. Owner friendly. Site was not the most level and electric pedestal was in the way of full wall slide, but since leaving next day did not look for more appropriate site. Worked as an overnight and would stay again.
We were here for a rally. You will be able to move around in a big rig and the sites are OK. But you can tell it is old and even though roads have new stone on them, the sites could use some. Owner is helpful but the teenagers he has working for him, do not seem to be really happy in their jobs. OK stay, but might look elsewhere in the area when I return.
We were here for a rally and rate reflects the one night dry camping before the rally. Older park that has been fixed up with a free pancake breakfast on Saturday mornings. Some sites are smaller than others, so if you have a big rig let them know.
We stayed on a 3 night special with a low key sales pitch. If I were to buy in Florida, this would be my choice. Lots are a good size and the allowed carriage houses are nice and standardized, so overall it looks good. The only draw back is Webster is not really close to anything, except its flea market.
Very nice new park. We had 2 nights free so we had a very brief sales pitch. The park has 3 sections. One is mostly park models, one is all types of RVs and the one we were in was for class A motorhomes. It has a restaurant and gift shop on site.
Second time we have stayed here. It is clean, easy in and out, concrete sites, and other than the planes: quiet. It is a great one night or longer stay park, and now that it is Passport America, it is even a better deal.
Signage is poor and you can miss or end up in the wrong drive, very easily. Office was nice, getting to our site was easy and at the top of the hill: your satellite dish will work. However site was crushed shell that needed a lot of work. Park in some areas appears that work has been done to fix up and update, and in others no work has been done. Over all, it just looks tired and well worn. Fair number of long term rentals. We had a free 2 day stay, so rate was nice but would not return.
Stayed in Palms. Rate was a special weekly rate. Older park with mix of long term, seasonal, and some short term. Did not enjoy my stay as the outside back ins have so many trees that your satellite will not work. Center section is better. It is not a resort. I am so tired of "big rig friendly" parks that need trees trimmed so they won't scratch a coach. Guests and office were pleasant.
OK Park. Entrance is tight as you enter then make 270 turn around a center island. It is an older park with many trees and crushed stone/shell sights. I looked all over the park and never found the site with palm trees, clear view of the sky, and pavers as shown on the web site. It is over priced for what it is. Probably would not stay again.
When I was here a year ago I had a site in new section which was a very roomy back in and really nice. This time I was given a pull through in the older section that was very treed so just had room for slides and no sat service. Park is still quiet and nice but be aware that if you are 45 ft you may not always get a site that really is appropriate.
New and easy to get around ownership park that rents out sites for owners. Sites are nice and roomy but how they are landscaped and maintained, such as trimming palm trees, varies from site to site. Our site needed trimming so you could walk around coach after slides were out. Other than that it is new and nice. It did have the distinction of charging for electric on a one week rental, never had that before.
Very nice new park. The pull throughs are in circles so they are of good size and you do not see coaches across from you. Originally planned 8 day but ended up 3 weeks. Very nice club house and excellent office staff.
New park and it is built for big rigs. Everything you would want from private restroom/shower rooms, with tiled showers, to a pool and camp store. Wi-Fi is strong and free. This is a great park with really helpful owners.
With a 45 ft coach and toad you will fit in site and move around OK, but I would not call it spacious. I probably should give it a zero for putting us in a site with all panels removed from the power pedestal with the legs of the 50 amp totally exposed. But that sums up the attention to detail and quality of the park. Good for one night on a trip.
We were here first for a rally and then stayed on waiting for mail. The park is very nice and big rig friendly. The owners are more than helpful, they are outstanding. They helped us in getting some delayed mail and also in doing a 1 gig download of an update to my GPS program. They also have a very nice meeting room.
Rate shows Alternative Resources discount. Office is very helpful. Park is easy to use and central to city. It is in no sense a destination but it is a good one to three day stay. They also, while I was there, allowed washing of your rig which was very nice.
It is an older KOA which has tried to update. Do to road construction, state not them, it is a little confusing to get in. It was quiet and clean. As noted stay way way right when you come up to the office as you will have to make a 180 turn to go to your sites. I would call it an over nighter. I would use it again.
It was an overnight stop and in the lower level and site was OK and all worked well, however I did see the speeding golf carts as I walked. On a big week end this could be a very busy and noisy place. But as noted it worked for one night and there is not much else in the area. If you are parking in the lower area do not go to the store or you will have go through campground to get to your site. If you are a big rig ask for the lower area as it has no trees and has long pull throughs.
We were here for a rally and I have no idea of the rate and we also did not stay at campground but knew people who did and also walked around it. It is nice with good sites. It is easy for big rigs and would make a good stop for an overnight or several days.
We were here for a rally so have no idea of rate and found sites OK except in the area we were. The sewer was way away from the other hook ups, requiring a long sewer hose or moving the coach to dump. It is older and the rest rooms show it. Very easy for a 43 ft rig to get around.
Many seasonals and now part of Morgan chain, Nascar themed resorts. Can be a bit tight for space if more than 2 or 3 coaches arrive to check in. Had a great pull through when heading west, it was dead on level for my 43 ft coach with no leveling needed, and on return trip had a pull through in the far back overflow. Both were excellent. If you have to go into overflow go all the way back as most campers stop at the up front over flow areas leaving the back area free and uncrowded.
As has been noted before and in The Big Rigs book, trees are the issue compounded by a staff that has no idea what the size of the sites are in relation to what you need or ask for. When going the I-90 route they are about the only close campground and I guess they know it or just do not care. Heading west we stopped for night and had to un-hook tow car and back and fill to get into site as site had a fir tree on inside entrance that required I go through another space to clear it. The return trip a week later was no better. When you tell them how bad it is they just give you a blank stare or claim surprise. I have a 43 ft 13 ft high rig and it is do able but a real hassle.
For location, rest rooms and beach it gets a 10. But for a park that says it is big rig friendly and has 50 foot sites, it gets a 3. So I averaged it. If you are over 40 feet and around 13 feet tall you will have to be very careful and selective. The level areas on some sites are short so your long wheel base will not stay on the level area. Some 50 foot sites need tree trimmed so you can get in, or get your slides out. Park and pick your site and section with an eye for trees and soft sand. Also, when entering stay on the drivers side of the road to the gate shack, or you will hit the over hanging trees. It is quiet and if you are in a site that allows you to see the beach and boats at night, it is very pretty and if you have a smaller rig it is great. A 43 foot, full wall slide requires you be choosey and dodge trees.
Older park and in front they are packed in. In back there is more space. We had to get a one night stay for Sunday on Memorial Day week end on short notice. They put us in an overflow area that worked well and 4 days later on the return trip they put us in back, which worked well also. The showers and rest rooms appear very clean but had limited hooks and no seat in showers. It is easy to get to from I-295.
They have a limited number of big rig sites so call ahead. Having said that, we found our site large enough for 43 foot full wall slide rig, and not to badly unlevel. An excellent one nighter for the I-81 run.
This is an older park. It is normal for this type of park to be hit or miss, for the site you get to fit a 43 ft, full wall slide and be level enough. It did this time, but the site I got 3 years ago would not. It is real close to I-81 and a Flying J, so it is handy and not a bad stop.
We were here after the Nascar race and they were trying to catch up. It is older and the pull though sites are not overly big for a 43 ft, full wall slide unit. I found the entrance signage a little confusing, but that could be me. Not a bad place, but not a great place.
Nearly brand new and just gorgeous. All parks should be so nice. They require an opener for the gate, but instead of a deposit for it, they take a credit card number and only charge you if you do not return the opener to the box by the gate on your way out. Much easier than a deposit that needs to be returned.
Nice Casino park. We were there for a rally but stayed on and the rate shown is the Passport America rate. We found it quiet in our area but in back where most of the cabins are could be a little noisier. Only complaint is the sewer inlet at many sites is level or up hill which makes dumping less than fun.
The park is tight and add in desk people that do not understand just how big 43 feet is and you have an OK experience but not great. The site they sent us to sloped up in the back. Because I could not fully back up without damage to the rear of my coach it left no room for my car. Yet the spaces marked for 40 foot or bigger rigs had 32 footers in them. I probably will look for another campground when in the area as it is just to busy and the lack of room.
The park is super and well done for newer class A and 5th Wheel campers. How ever they charge $25 deposit for the gate opener. It would be nice to have someone in the office on a Saturday morning around 10 to refund you your money. This necessitated 3 cell phone calls before we confirmed how to return the opener we could not drop off and how they would refund our cash deposit. This was not professional, thus the lower rating.
It is an older park and they have tried to keep up with the times. They have no control over the business next door that has a loud and late night party while we were there so I did not mark them down for it. How ever they could and did not shut down the tent campers and cabin campers who turn their car radios up loud so they can hear the tunes. Don't you go camping to get peace and quiet? Overall an OK campground and I would stay if back in the area.
This is a new park about 10 miles out of town on US 441. It is class A motorhomes only and sites are for sale. Small and very nice park. Sales are very low key and they at present have specials to get you to come in and visit and stay. Call to find out. Down sides are no showers and you will hear road noise, but the staff and sites are great and will fit any big rig. At present the water sites are back in but in future they may make pull in sites. There are no facilities for children, but believe they are welcome.
Classic older park with a mix of park models, snow birds and a few transients. I found it quiet and OK while waiting for service at Independence RV. When I noticed, mid stay, that the 50 amp power had lost a leg they came out and fixed it quickly and pleasantly. There are other, better parks further out, but this was close and served the purpose.
Resort may be an overstatement, but the sites are easy to get into, the rest rooms were clean and it is quiet at night. You are on the approach to Jacksonville Airport, but they stop at night and you don't notice them after a while. It is an OK, laid back park that allows you to get in and out easy and be near Jacksonville and 30 minutes from Amelia Island.
New park with big sites, a lake, walking trails, and nice big private shower/bath rooms. You are 30 minutes from Myrtle Beach but, unless you need sand in your toes, the size of the sites and the quiet make it the best bet for a Myrtle Beach visit.
We were picking up our new MH so stayed at this park. It is new, paved sites, all back-ins and is very nice. No trees or shade, but the morning deer and turkeys in the field were nice to watch. No stuff for children. Showers were clean and nice. This would be an excellent stop when touring Asheville as it is only about a half-hour a way. There is a rally field across the way that is open during the summer and it is not as nice as the new section, and I believe only 30 amp.
This is an older park and looks it. However staff is friendly and more importantly for me, open in the winter. The sites are treed and look like in summer could be tight. Cable TV starts in the 40's so that can be confusing. It was OK for an overnight.
Reviewed it in 2007 and not much has changed. I always park by pool so as not to have to fight the trees. The mini golf is getting a lot worn. However if your doing the I-84 corridor there is not much else in the area.
It is on a hill but I had no problems getting to, into, or out of our site. I did not use the water so can't comment on the water pressure. I enjoyed our one night and would stay again. It also was nice having deer wandering through the campground.
Now with paved roads we found it to be really nice. The roads were wide and the sites easy to get into. Ours was gravel/crushed stone but the rain overnight did not affect it. The river and skyline were nice to see out the front window and being only a mile from the downtown of Little Rock was very nice.
Older KOA that is in very good shape but like all old KOAs it is tight and not really big enough for today's big rigs. I would call the sites small and tight. However the office people were nice and on a cold rainy day the pizza, available at the office restaurant was very nice. They also do breakfast. I would stay again as a one nighter but I might also look for another stop.
This is the best one nighter RV Park period. New wide sights, wide roads, dinner and breakfast available for a reasonable price, full time RV service on site, free laundry, $1.00 ice, on the honor system, you can wash rig or they will for a fee, and private shower/rest rooms. They had a 3rd night free promotion while we were there. We had a nail in our toad tire and the on site repair fixed it for $15 and we did not have to leave the sight. It is not a resort in any sense of the word, but a great one nighter or more, if touring the area.
Very old KOA that is about 50% permanent. Looks bad but it worked for my one night. It is tight, but had many transient big rigs. If I could I would not stay again but then again it was not the worst I have been in.
It is what it is, a fixed up parking lot in a city. Having said that it is clean, easy to maneuver in with wide roads and sites and if you get lucky in the 500/600 section you get to see the arch out your window. They also are the recommended big rig sites. A shuttle will take you to the casino for dinner, drinks, or gaming. You can get lost very easily on the exit and entrance ramps so stay alert. Some of the turns could be better marked.
I would not try this park in anything bigger than a 40ft. MH. We did it in our 38 ft and toad but it is tight and narrow getting to campground and the last turn is very tight. The site was long but very un-level. We were in the old section and the newer sites are much more level. It is pretty and if we here with a smaller rig and children I would probably have liked it a lot more. I probably would not return or use it as an overnight stop.
We had been here a few years ago and not much has changed now that KOA has arrived. We were next to the entrance road which means you go through the park to get to your site and to leave. The park is OK, but it is showing its age. The pull throughs are narrow and the roads are narrow and the turns have trees on the edges of the road. It just is a pain. OK for a one nighter.
Pricey for one night, but if you are there for a week with children you will love it. Big and busy. Still had to duck trees when hooked to my car but not as bad as most. W-ifi is not free and starts at 2 day minimum.
We are here for a rally and found the park older, but easy to maneuver in. The WiFi was strong at camper in the P area and showers though older were clean and worked well. Most sites in the open and great roads with no trees to duck so highly recommend as a stop for a big rig.
As noted it is older and really caters to the seasonal set. Our site was quite unlevel but it worked as a one nighter. The site even though a pull through require us to unhook. The trees probably won't get you but the narrow entrance and exit are doable but not a favorite of mine. The sites over looking the lake are nicer. It has a 5:00 PM check out and 6:00 PM check in. It was quiet by me but a few spots down we had the 20-something party crew. Would not avoid but would not drive out of my way to get here. It is showing its age
Easy in and out. Clean and wifi though a weak signal did work. However KOA now has a new wrinkle on wifi, it was free but they monitor your bit usage and at some point (unstated amount) they will cut off service for that day. Pay showers, that lowers the rating.
My visit did not start well. When you enter the office is to the left and has a red lettered sign saying pull up. After check in you have to go around a tree back to where you came. To do this, if you have a big rig, you will have to disconnect. Then as you enter park you will see the small black lettered sign saying "big rig parking", so when you go in stay right. Just a hint to the owners all important signs should be the same color and size. Site was do able in my 38 footer but not the largest I've ever had. OK one nighter but next time might try the KOA on other side of town. You are about 14 miles west of Thunder Bay at Happy land.
Small park that a private concession runs. Sites are wide and nice. Shower rooms are old and need some updating and shower curtains. Wi-Fi is only at the office area and free. Deer came by sites near us which was nice. Over all an OK one nighter but condition of showers and some graffiti on buildings does not lend a nice feel. Office is not staffed during the day when we were there, but may be during summer.
Nice park. The trees could use some trimming but you can get around. The wifi is very erratic. One minute strong then not there then back and weak and then gone and then back for who knows how long. Very frustrating.
Easy sites to get into, laundry was nice. However the wifi is very weak. I could only use it at office and the only power plugs were outside on the wall and you drape your power cord to picnic table, subject to people walking into or one plug in the laundry room..give it a 2 for the wifi otherwise I would have rated it higher. It has many seasonal but they were quiet, but dog pick up and leash usage was spotty and not enforced.
It is next to a main road, but you overlook the river. The Wi-Fi was $3 and was strong. Did not use facilities but they claim private room showers and a sauna. They also have a free pressure wash. Great one nigher.
Its Skagway, limited space and they only care about the cruise ships. It does have many seasonal/summer workers. However when we were there for 4 days it was quiet. It also had a free 24 hr coupon for the very high cost Internet. After 24 hrs we used our air card. Saw the other 2 and they are tighter and since one next to train and the other near the ships not sure if any better. Not great, but not many options.
This is a city park. The sites are older but do-able for a large rig. No power but water and a dump is available. It was quiet but does have some long term rigs. Nice staff. A good option if driving through or for one or two nights. Many rental class C units stay for the night before drop off.
Tight spaces but nice owner. It has Wi-Fi and pay showers and has been noted before it can jam up at the exit/dump station. Town putting sewer in so don't know if that will help. Used my air card so not sure about Wi-Fi. Probably could not get signal or was a pay for time.
Some power sites but we dry camped. Did not use but the showers looked clean. You can dump grey for free and pay to dump black water. You are in the middle of nowhere so look at it as a wide open national park and you will enjoy your stay.
Easy wide open park. It now has a few 50 amp sites and from them the Wi-Fi is solid and free. Showers and RV wash all are a dollar for 4 minutes. That's why the lower rating as that seems a little high for not much time.
There were roomy sites, private shower rooms, and the Wi-Fi was rock solid. The camp is outside of town. We were near road, but after 10:00 we never heard any noise. They had an RV wash and convenience/gas/fuel store next door. They also can book trips for you.
I thought the location was handy. Staff was nice, but never have I had so many people cut through my site as I did here. Sites are tight and at all sort of angles so as to get as many RVs in as possible. Looks new and is probably the only big rig place in town. There was a lot of activity going on. Train station is behind with tour buses. It was quiet at night.
This place was clean and neat. The Wi-Fi worked in the coach; I was on stream side across from the antenna. The showers were clean and free. It was about six miles to town, and some shuttle buses showed up. Owners have cute dogs, and they are free roaming, so watch your step. Unfortunately some of the campers near me thought that meant they could let theirs roam also.
Quiet, and 50 amp power. Wifi worked well in coach. Easy to go to Soldotna or Kenai. There is a deck overlooking the river and its wildlife. Showers are private room with sink, john, and mirror plus shower.
Sites overlook the bay and if you walk to the shore you can see "The Spit". You will see many eagles go by. It was quiet with acceptable room. The wifi worked well in the laundry room for free or you could pay and use the town system at your site. You can stay here for about half the cost of out on the spit and only be about 5 minutes away.
It is in the city so room is scarce. It is tight but slide was out and had room to park my car. Pretty quiet where in the far end but probably could be noisy if near main road. I had problems with the wifi even when in the laundry room, the internet cafe, also problems with drops on my air card. Not sure if Anchorage was having a bad day or what as no problems before or after or the next morning. The showers have no hooks or chairs for towels or clothes, so bring your own chair.
Plenty of room and easy in and out. The wash is a pay by size of RV and they provide a brush and bucket and power rinse. Wi-Fi is OK but pay by hour or day. They do have as noted a free network cable hook up. A good place to stay before or after crossing and a chance to clean the rig.
Well graveled lots. Nice lake, and has propane, fuel, and food. Laundry room was very clean and modern. Wifi ok, but not sure about outgoing. He has a sign about not doing downloads and my e mail will receive but not send, and I can surf and send from my web site..so not sure why as e mail has been sending and receiving at other locations.
This is a gravel lot with plenty of turning room. There is an RV wash pit with hose, and you supply soap. Wi-Fi is weak but works in the office building. It's done that way on purpose as a local apartment house started using the system. Then the owner went to a password system, and the campers gave password to apt house. The owners are nice.
The family that owns this park also owns Northern Lights. Northern Lights appears to be getting the upkeep. Ok for one night. Bathrooms are old and charge for showers. No wifi when we were there. Looks like it could be a mud bowl in the rain.
Nice people in the office. The sites are OK and usable. The shower rest room is older but clean and wifi as usual at most parks weak, but the front of the rec building has chairs and tables and has a strong signal. It is not a destination but a stop on your way to the destination. It does what it is expected to do.
Nice park. Sites are easy in and out. Office staff is helpful and knowledgeable. Laundry room is clean. Wi-Fi does cost, but it will work in motor home and as noted is fast. Worth the extra cost, even though I feel it should be part of cost.
Older but very clean with new restrooms/showers. Many seasonal long term rigs but pretty tidy over all. Person in office was very helpful and suggested the appropriate sites for our 38ft motor home. Would stay again.
I will give it an 8 for being clean, neat and pretty. I have a 38 ft MH and tow a car. I had to disconnect to get into the pull through and it was a tight fit as I had to move the table, then back and fill to get straight. Trees are not an issue just very narrow roads and site pads between utilities and table. I had to park the car sideways to be able to stay in site. So great place for smaller rigs just not great for big rigs.
This is a funky, older park. More long term sites than transient. However it is clean, neat, and quiet. Very hilly but compact. Limited office hours, but during day the open sites are listed just pay in the envelope and settle in. I had a pull through and a great view through the trees of the distant hills. Would stay again.
Very nice check in, and great interior roads. They even have Yurts. Some shower buildings are new some are older, so it is hit or miss. They were clean, and the showers are free, and in our building very hot. Renovations are going on, but some sites will be tight for a large rig. All sites I saw are under trees so expect droppings and messy sites with leaves and flowers/seeds but still a nice park
Nice sites and great views. The front rows face the sea or harbor. The interior sites are about 5 feet higher so you still get a view. The shower/rest room/laundry buildings are new and spotless. I did not see one thing wrong. I would not say it is a great place for children if you are looking for activities. The wifi is weak unless you are in the buildings. That is its only weakness. Price is off season.
Older park. It was quiet, but power was low and tripped my surge protector twice. I could see the Wi-Fi antenna yet its signal was so weak I could not use it. No 50 amp service and shared power pedestal. Very nice owners, but still it is an older park that needs some upgrading.
Really busy as mothers day week end. They had hay rides, re enacted Black Bart shoot outs, and talent type shows for kids. But at 10 PM you could have heard a pin drop. It was nice for us as an overnighter but no sewer (they set up a pump out) and some what tight pull throughs with opposite direction hook ups with you and your neighbor sharing power, and no 50 amp, just make it not higher. Plus new owners start next week, so hard to tell what will happen. I would probably stay again.
New and very nice. Ownership park. Golf course a short walk with nice restaurant in club house. It is part of a planned community of houses and golf course. Wi-Fi worked in coach and free. Grounds and buildings use a pass card for security.
Pluses are it is easy to move about in, It is near the river and has a boat launch, and a large store. Negatives are after dark you are on your own and quiet hours mean nothing. We had two coaches next to us party after quiet hours with their dog running loose and no one cared but the staff were at our coach at 9 am to make sure we were out of the spot. The check out time was 5pm but as it was Friday on mothers day week end they needed the spot. We had told them we would be out by 10 am. I would say it might be a hit or miss type of campground. There are no big box stores in Needles so you have to go to Lake Havasu for Wal-Mart or Home Depot. If in area again might go to Havasu or the KOA.
Big over 55 resort. Half park models and rest MH/Trailers. It was off season so it was deserted. Great grounds and facilities. I did not rate higher as we were not given any info about the park or its facilities. Sites that are owned and are back ins are stone with cement pads. They are very nice. The pull throughs are a large parking lot with hook ups. They were great for an overnight. I'm glad they take overnighters but they do not really put out the welcome mat. During high season it probably is much friendlier. Wi-Fi is pay by day and strong where we were.
Easy in and out and very clean. Found it quiet and a great overnighter or maybe longer. Don't remember seeing any stuff for children. It is next to an RV dealer. Free continental breakfast in the AM. Wi-Fi worked in coach.
This is the RV park or if you wish the one with the hook ups. We were there in the off season so not full. Back in sites on black top. First come first served and those already there are first in line. Sites are wide but the space between the front of the rigs would make it very tight backing in when busy. You park your car/truck next to your rig. Store nice and check in easy. But showers are pay and not cheap so we used the coach.
Older and could use some TLC but OK for a one night. Tree at my site made it harder to get out than should have been. No one in office next day so left money with the coffee crew. Quiet and I can't remember about the Wi-Fi working or not.
I have never stayed at any of the Outdoor World resorts so I can't compare to them but this is the nicest set up campground I have stayed at. It was clean, quiet, and roads were wide and sites easy to get in and out of. A great for one night or longer. I'm not sure if children would find a lot to do in planned activities.
Gave it a seven as it does what it is, well. It is a parking lot near the city and next to an RV dealer. The Camping World store is gone. It is near the Interstate and also the train is next door. I slept well, but it has noise from train and road and if you need silence you will not be happy. It is a very good overnighter.
No problems on road to park. There was one tight turn but you can see around it. It is close to the interstate. Did hear a train but didn't seem that loud. Found owners helpful and escorted us to site. Would definitely go back again.
Entrance could be missed but not as bad as stated. Drive is narrow but not blind so each coach can see each other. We had a pull through and getting in not bad but tree with trimmed limbs at coach roof hight would make for a very hard exit from site. No one was in the site in front so I could swing wide. It is old and they were working on new sites so may get better but I would not like to have to move a 45 ft coach in and out. I thought my 38" was tight.
We were there for a rally and in the lower unshaded area..campground is older but quiet. Sites are not always level, showers had mosquitoes on the walls, needs screen doors. We enjoyed our stay and would go back, but might look for another location.
it is nicely located at the mouth of a river and a short walk to the beach. It is no frills but it is a great spot to set up to see the NH and northern MA beaches..short drive to Portsmouth NH, Newburyport MA, and Plum Island..hard to get into in the summer, but fall and early spring are first come first served.
Clean, easy to get to. Looking for one night and took the "open sites" near office so not to fight the trees. New showers in the shade area looked clean and roomy. WiFi was so weak, that it was unusable in coach near office.
Looking for one night and peace and quiet we arrived for "pirates weekend". But the campground was clean, filled with helpful employees, and quiet. So it looks like a good one night stop or a family week end. Free wifi and showers are a plus.
Stayed 2 nights. I had asked for a water and electric site and after I parked they noticed I only had 30 amp and asked if I wanted 50 and I said yes and they moved me 2 sites over and I then had full hook ups and 50 amp at the same price. We used the laundry and showers and they were very clean. Very pleased with our stay.
Nice park/campground on the river in the center of town. Stayed one night mid-week and found it very quiet and clean. Easy pull throughs for big rigs if not busy. If they are busy you will have a back in and share the power box with 3 other rigs so you may end up with 30 amp as the box only has 2 50 amp plugs. Great one nighter and maybe more if you are looking for a spot to stay, not a resort.
Looking for a one night stop over to see a friend. Campground is very big and active and has many really nice park models. However having to go by all this to check in and then retrace to get to site was OK but could have done without. Nice site 30 amp only. Badly placed water spigot made getting out harder than it should have been. Nice dump station, but required a 180 degree turn to get to gate to leave after dumping. I had a 38' MH and was pulling a car. I would not have wanted to do it in a larger rig. I found staff to be friendly and help full and the park very quiet.
