Back for third and fourth visit this year as grandbaby just down the road. Cable is very good and park location is close to just about everything in town / you name it. Did have a hard East Texas storm night before we left that shook some trailers and "pruned some trees" I'm afraid. Shade will be a bit less in some spots. Road and site immaculate and well maintained. Will be back again.
Very nice facility traveling US 59. Visited while getting RV work at Genuine RV, Nacogdoches, TX. Use of 2021 may become useful as highway construction on US 59/69 and the loop around Lufkin is in progress. Call ahead in the future for last minute update on entrance off the loop. Could use more laundry, shower and bath, but, got by fine. Several highway construction workers, but, quiet place as they work all day and come and go quietly.
Finally came back after this was known as Bridgeport KOA in the 70s'. Nice clean park with a few sites near the beach. Most are north of the office where bath facilities are. East Texas has ants and stickers, so expect some and staff will help on pests if found. Onsite restaurant only open weekends for lunch and dinner now. Groceries, food, gas etc., very close in Onalaska.
Rate is the standard weekly rate we paid for site 91 south of the office. Facilities were clean and everything worked. Cable is somewhat lacking as facilities to the park can't handle more bandwidth I guess. Local TV was good and finally got our Dishnet to work. Shopping and dining are really not far away and the entrance just got paved day before we left. Will come back to enjoy the area more.
Always check in advance due to Texas A&M close by with activities always going on. Rate based on three days and one week rate which allowed us to play with grandbaby longer. Facilities and staff were wonderful as usual. Be self contained as there are no showers/restrooms. Very close to everything in College Station. Always approach from the west on 2818 to avoid U-turns. We would definitely stay here again.
Staff was very friendly when we called broken down on the side of the highway. Good Sam had a wrecker on the way, and we selected Hwy. 71 as the destination for the tow. Came in the front gate on a flatbed with trailer in tow on the hook. Went directly to first site set aside for us and proceeded to repair our trip. Shower/restrooms were very clean, pool wonderful, washing machines were clean and large with waiting area at the office. We can't complain about a thing as highway noise is part of travel. Gated for security and clean.
The old drain across entry the road to temp. Sites has been replaced. Deep dip mentioned in older post is gone and was drying when we left. Wi-Fi works all the way to the back of the park. We had another wonderful stay for three nights and did use the fine laundry facilities. Staff is always helpful.
Our first stop here after passing by many times. It is an easy 6 hours to the Rio Grande Valley from here after a good meal at "Franks Restaurant" just up the road. Dairy Queen is adjoining if in a hurry. Very quaint old buildings are part of atmosphere of old town. Suggest a stay to check out the "painted churches" as this is an old German area. All slots are long pull throughs with very good roads. Laundry small, but, will do.
Enjoyed our usual stop here. Always call ahead to check on college/race track crowd. Wi-Fi worked well as we were near the office. Laundry is nice, but be sure to check machines as workers had made messes in the past. Shower/restrooms still very nice and roomy. Park is "For Sale" as owners had to retire. I'm keeping fingers crossed it stays open and improves.
Make sure you use the Albert Pike (Hwy 270W) address if using a GPS. New Magellan took us to the locked back gate on Thorton Ferry Road and what a mess to get turned around. Very quiet as off season and cool weather. Lake view was nice and were to tired to walk to showers so stayed in.
Used Magellan to get here as it is off the main drag (no highway noise). There is a large truck stop is across the interstate for fuel/food etc. The park is old, but, we had nice view of pasture when the frost came in overnight. The shower and restroom facility is old like the rest of the park, but, clean. This stop fit our day perfectly and managers were very nice. Got Good Sam rate. OH! Ask about which way to go when pulling out. I didn't hit anything.
Called ahead to be sure no large college thing going on and the new Magellan took us right to the entrance to the parking lot. This park is located in the rear of parking lot for baseball facility and up on a hill allowing viewing of the games. Shower etc. very spacious and comfortable as it is very open with large bench in the center of the room. Be sure the local cat doesn't get caught in the room when you leave.
New Magellan took us to the front door. A large tire and auto/truck repair place being constructed at the exit stop sign on the way in if needed in the future. Trees helped mask noise from I-10 a bit. Shower and restroom facility is old, but worked fine. Office staff very nice and in the off season, this is a quiet place to stay.
Welcomed stop after long day out of South Texas. Dropped in with no call and directed to a very nice spot just across from showers. Wife looked into the laundry and said it was nice. It is away from I-10 and quiet as I'd hoped.
We really enjoyed out stay and the atmosphere was wonderful. It was late for leaf color, but the park was still beautiful to Texas folk. Only drawback was lack of place to put clothing in showers, so plan ahead with at least a hangar or something. Laundry was nice and clean. Wi-Fi worked in our trailer half way back in slot #15. RV supply/service across interstate as well as large grocery store and eating joints. Don't pass this up!
Try to stay in the front for more shower/restroom availability. Long term workers have caused some problems for management that are getting better. Laundry machines worked very well, but, watch out for previous user leaving a mess as mentioned above. We stayed two nights in the back until a sick horse could leave and we got the owners spot #2 where Wi-Fi worked out of the office. Very friendly owners. We did wake up to a motorcyclist in a tent passing through, but, I would not count on anything large. Rate is for 30 amp. service. New H.E.B. grocery and banks one mile to the north if needed.
Be alert for this park entrance as "T intersection" just off Texas 43 is a distraction. Large entrance is on the north (left side) just before reaching the corner store and intersection, so go slow. Park is well maintained as most all Texas State Parks. Some of the FHU sites are not level, so be prepared (check with office first). Lots of tours out of Uncertain and other areas available. Wanted to stay longer, but the Easter crowd was coming.
The park is a short drive west of US 77 on a city street that is marked with RV Park sign. Very nice food stop at that corner also makes first night in easy. Only one restroom/shower can be a problem, so be prepared. Short walk to the river and lots of trees and birds. We stayed in a pull-through where passing folks came and went. Rate is Good Sam. Buy some BBQ to put in fridge north of park on US 71 at the town square. Managers very helpful and friendly to all.
Very clean restrooms, showers and laundry come after seeing the manicured grounds. Staff was very cordial and helpful in finding local food stores and Wal-Mart. Pay attention to exiting I-20 as there is another park where FM 2011 meets Old Kilgore Highway south of the overpass/exit. Continue southeast for two more miles and look for a white wood fence on your left. You will not regret the stop. Kilgore and Longview are easy to reach. Park is on Google Earth search.
Arrived late due to plans going wrong causing a long drive to skip another overnight spot. Self check in settled next morning and signed up for several more days in another site. Staff was most helpful in arrangements and local information. Bought tickets for Silverton Train at the park office. Very nice facility for our old Holiday Rambler and tired travelers. Short drive into north side of Durango and good food.
Arrived after office hours and could not find cable TV connection. Radio works good! Quiet neighbors (cemetery) made for good sleeping as park is a way from highway noise. Small patio with privacy walls was nice for star gazing at night. Park host helped us sign in and we left fee at the office mail slot on the way out on Sunday AM. We will come back for a longer stay.
Very new park in an easy to find location just southwest of Lubbock. Food, fuel and tire issues within easy drive. Stayed only one night staying hooked up and used the wonderful bath facilities after a miserable wet night in Santa Fe, NM. We will stay here again as it is a good stop from South Texas to Colorado for us. Staff was very helpful in our request for easy access to showers and large pull through site.
Arrived in heavy rain after all day drive in light showers. Staff very helpful and understanding of trying to stay hooked up for easy departure next day. Location is easy to find and leave from in any direction. Only noise is a local road and not I-25. Did not use WiFi but cable tV was good. Overnight pull throughs are not set up for older trailers, but we dumped next AM before leaving.
Took about 12 hours driving time from deep south Texas to get here at noon. It was worth the time saved to enjoy to quiet park here. Small shade trees are growing and some shade in most sites. Pool was closed, but looked very good. View to the west was nice for "flat lander eyes." Site large enough to stay hooked up overnight for early start next day.
First time in the area and we picked a jewel. The quiet area with easy access to town was very nice. Staff was very helpful in all questions. This is a "work in progress" as improvements are coming for shower area. During our stay, we had almost clear skies with one nice sunset over Williams. We will stay here again as there was more to see than we had time for.
