In many ways a great park. Senior discount and location are great. Roads are are nicely paved with paved sites and grass in between. But a few annoying negatives keep this from being a 10: Be prepared for mosquitoes. We were there in early December and they were bad then. Don't know what its like in Spring. The showers were fairly clean, but there was no ventilation and this kept every surface wet 24/7. Perhaps its better when they switch the AC on. The Wi-Fi, although free, is unusable. They have invested in several towers and transmitters spaced around the camping area so the signal is very strong but the speed is the slowest I've ever experienced--slower than dial-up. My browser timed out on most pages before they finished loading. I couldn't even check my e-mail. Odd they have invested so much in hardware only to make the system useless with such slow connection speed.
This is a great place for those who enjoy nature. We saw deer and an osprey. Huge sites, many with woods between neighbors. The 50 amp sites on the back row are especially spacious. Mature trees shade all sites. Most sites are bare sand, but a few are gravelled and the four designated as handicap accessible are concrete. No sewer hook-ups, but a dump station is available. Boat rentals are available. There is no official swimming area, but plenty of good places to swim at your own risk. Has three nicely laid out nature trails--just watch out for the chiggers. The Destin beaches are just a few miles away over a toll bridge. This park is a good alternative to Topsail Hill and Henderson Beach state parks, which are nearby.
This is a fairly large park with sites grouped around a small lake. Many sites are occupied by long-term residents. There is plenty for kids to do with two pools, boat rentals, game room, etc. Mature trees shade almost every space. Concrete pads with gravel between. Some sites have the sewer awkwardly placed at the end of the driveway and may require an extra-long hose. Right on I-10, so epect some highway noise. A great place for families, but seems a bit expensive for the overnighter who doesnt use the rec facilities.
Gravel pull throughs in a trailer park with many long-term residents. Management is sort of laid back and the park has seen better days. Sites are very close together and parking is limited. Does have lots of mature shade trees and abuts a large city park with bike paths and playground. A great place to walk dogs. Close to Walmart, Camping World, and downtown Denver. An OK place to stay for a few days to see the local sights. The place was full or nearly so every night, so reservations are recommended.
A nice park near downtown. A few RV spots in a trailer park, but nicely maintained. Most spaces are back-ins with concrete slabs. Access roads are wide and the staff assists in getting into your spot. Nice mature shade trees. Right on busy street, but a tall wall helps block the noise. Near shopping an on the city bus route. Seniors (55+) only and no tents are allowed.
Pretty much as other posters have described. A unique location right on the river. Free wi-fi was excellent, but if you need it, request a site near the office. Not too many trees on the sites, but a few spots were shaded. Cable TV had very limited number of channels. Nice concrete pads for most sites, alternating with some grass spots that dont seem to be used unless the park gets crowded. Lots of space, especially during off season. Nice shaded kids play area. A Good Sam park, but be prepared for an added tax of about 15% over the base price. LA really likes to soak the tourists.
As others have stated, just a gravel parking lot with tight spaces. Location is back behind some buildings and we missed the turn even though we had the map from their website. Better signs would have helped. Evidently they've had problems with pets because we received a whole sheet of pet rules at check-in. Their policy states a pet deposit is required, but they didn't charge us even though I told them we had a dog. Otherwise, it was close to the interstate and OK for an overnight.
Heavily wooded campground on a lake with lots of shade. Seems to be a favorite spot for locals, many of whom have set up seasonal units that occupy the waterfront sites. We were there on Saturday and many folks had come for the weekend and brought boats on trailers and things got pretty crowded. Not the best place if you want peace and quiet, but probably better during the week and in the off-season. Nearby state park, at the location of Lewis and Clark campsite, has replicas of the expedition keelboat and is worth a visit.
Yeah, its crowded all right, but since this is the only full hookup camp sites in the park, you have few choices. We checked out the no-hookups sites at nearby Bridge Bay and frankly preferred where we were. Has a nice laundry and you're within walking distance to the store and visitor center. Those with small kids need to keep close watch. One morning, two full grown bison came running full speed, about thirty feet from my trailer, through the wooded strip between the rows of campers where kids had been playing the day before.
A good spot for an overnighter or a few days. Convenient to the interstate but still quiet. Has an indoor pool and pet run enclosed by a high board fence to help block the wind. Free wi-fi worked great inside the trailer. Seems to be a popular place during the summer. We were there mid-week and it appeared to be full. Reservations are probably a good idea.
Sites have been newly renovated, now have concrete pads, new utility outlets, new tables and grills. Laid out in the pull-through loop design, so there is lots of room between sites. Unfortunately only a few sites have any significant shade. The lake is a favorite spot for locals during the weekend and the park gets very crowded. A heavy police presence is required to keep things in order. Park, campground staff were of little help when we received only a map of the state park, with little information about the campground. After two days we discovered there was a great laundry in one of the shower buildings. It would have been nice had we been given that information beforehand. All in all, this park has great potential and we'd probably stay there again, as the Denver area has few good campgrounds to choose from.
One of the nicest campgrounds we've been to. Quite a surprise to find such a shady spot in the Badlands. In a grove of mature cottonwoods, so every site has lots of shade. This is very welcomed in the summer. Very spacious park and even the non-premium sites had plenty of room. Huge fenced in pet area is great. There is a knowledgable and friendly staff and the location is just a few miles outside the national park gate. The town of Interior has a population of 67 and not much in the way of groceries, so stock up before you arrive. Our only real negative was that it was a bit pricey, but we don't mind that so much when we get a nice place.
A nice park with friendly and helpful staff. Right off the interstate but highway noise is minimal. Built on a hillside and all the roads and sites are gravel. This makes for some un-level sites. Free wifi was excellent. Also has a cookout patio were food is served. Nice playground and pool. Free VHS/DVD lending library. Very friendly and helpful staff.
Good location right off the interstate but very little highway noise in the park. Interior roads are dirt/gravel and the campground is showing its age. Staff was friendly and helpful. Evidently some problems with the WI-FI and it does not reach some sites but is available in the game room. Fine for an overnighter.
Great central location to visit Texas A&M as it is within sight of the stadium. All concrete pads, some pull-throughs and some with shade. Everything is neat and tidy with beautiful landscaping and immaculate grounds. Has no bathhouse, restrooms, or laundry facilities. Strictly worded rules are given at check-in and pets are allowed outside only with a human. No kennels, tie-outs, or pens are allowed. Location is noisy as park is on both a busy highway and a railroad. Proximity to a major RR crossing means lots of train horns. Park entrance is poorly marked and easy to miss. You'll need the map on the CG's web site to find it. Staff was friendly and helpful. We'd stay again.
A good place to stop overnight. Very reasonably priced, however the office keeps weekday business hours and is mostly closed on nights, weekends, and holidays. Check-in, check-out, and payment during those times is on the honor system. We saw a pack of unleashed dogs roaming the back of the property, evidently from some nearby farm, but they did not cause any problems.
A beautiful campground. The only real problem is that some of the sites are very tight to get into due to all the closely-spaced trees and the narrow access road. Be very careful and watch out for the many large overhanging limbs. Bigger units may want to avoid the sites numbered below about 105 due to a lack of space for backing and maneuvering in that area. The sites themselves are mostly good-sized once you get into them. There are a few long pull through sites.
A nice park with spacious grassy sites and mature shade trees. Most sites are back-in and on grass. Lots of sites are occupied by long-term residents with many units serving as weekend fishing and hunting camps for locals. Just off the Interstate on the edge of the swamp and near a state tourist information office.
A nice park right on the interstate. Not really in Tallahassee despite the name. Heavily wooded with mature trees and lots of shade. Mostly pull through sites on grass with gravel roads. Sites are more spacious and farther apart than at most KOAs. A good number of long-term residents. Wi-Fi service is slow and limited pretty much to the office-game room area. Office hours are somewhat limited and we found that an inconvenience as they were closed when we arrived in the early afternoon.
This campground has now become a mostly long term resident park with a few spaces set aside for short term campers and overnights. The area is still much impacted by Katrina and many campground residents appear to be construction workers. Overnighters are put in long grassy pull-throughs with water and electric only. If you want sewer be sure to verify that at check in. OK for a night or two, but has lost much of its resort destination character.
This is a fairly typical KOA. Nice entry and lots of frills so it gets a high Trailer Life rating, but when you get right down to it, its not much more than a parking lot with hookups. It was way overpriced, especially given the nicer and much cheaper state parks in the area. It was right on the noisy interstate and has the typical KOA sardine can-style campsites with no shade. There were also a large number of RVs being stored which added to the overall feeling of being crowded in. Sites are grass and sand with a small cement patio. Watch out for the low-hanging electric wires on some sites. On the plus side, the pool seemed nice and they offer a free continental breakfast. We overnighted there but will probably try somewhere else next time.
This park has two main things going for it: price and location. The other reviews have it right. It is OK for an overnight or a base to explore the area, but if you want much more, keep searching. Management is pretty non-existent. The days we were there trash was piling up since it hadn't been collected recently and one row lost power for a short period.
One of several Corps of Engineer campgrounds on Lake Texoma. Off the beaten path so it is more secluded and quieter than the more developed parks. Some of the waterfront sites are elevated above the lake with nice views. All sites are heavily wooded with lots of shade. Large gravel pads with picnic tables and fire rings. No sewer hookups but there is a dump station. Showers are pretty basic but clean. Some sites have a very long water run so bring an extra hose. Short hiking trail and group picnic pavillion. No developed swimming area, but two boat ramps and boats can be moored at waterfront sites.
An older park located near down town on the north side of Amarillo. All pull-thrus with mature shade trees. No fancy landscaping and the interior roads could use some work, but a reasonably priced alternative to the more elaborate RV parks out on the Interstate. Located across the street from a large city park with golf, zoo, swimming pool and amusement park. Right on busy Highway 287, so expect some highway noise.
Fairly typical KOA. Sites are level pull-throughs with not much space in between. Spotless laundromat and nice pool. They serve an outdoor breakfast and dinner in season. Hotspotzz WIFI is available for an extra fee. As with most KOAs, a bit pricey, but you generally know what to expect. Very friendly and helpful staff. A good place to stay while seeing Petrified Forest NP and other sights. The office provided us with maps and tour suggestions.
We checked in with some apprehension after reading the earlier reviews, and were pleasantly surprised. While its true that there aren't many amenities here, where else can you get full hookups for $22 per night within walking distance to the Grand Canyon? All pull throughs with a few trees. Close by the shopping area with a very well appointed grocery/outfitter, souvenier shop, post office, and snack bar. An easy walk to the visitor's center or you can catch the free shuttle at the CG entrance.
What a beautiful location! Widely separated sites under the tall Ponderosa Pines. All RV sites are paved pull throughs, although ours was very unlevel. No hookups, but a good water fill-up point and dump station are at the entrance. Flush toilets are available and a nice general store, pay showers, and laundromat are very close by. The lodge and visitor center are about a mile away. The CG is only open during the Summer and Fall and reservations must be made a good bit in advance with payment in advance. Many sites are for tents only.
This park is difficult to rate. On the one hand the location is fantastic with great views and very reasonable price. Right on shuttle bus line to Zion NP. Nice mature trees and some sites are on the river. Our main concern was with the overcrowding. The CG is squeezed in behind a motel and there is very little space between sites. There is also a sizable group camping area and when we were there, several busloads of HS kids were tenting. They were all quiet and well-behaved, but the showers, restrooms, laundromat and garbage facilities were all overburdened. The owners also sell showers to campers from the nearby National Park CG and this adds to the crowding. In short, the park is operating beyond capacity. The front office staff seemed a bit overwhelmed by it all. All that said, we'd probably stay there again just for the great scenery.
A very large campground. Fortunately, we were there in May, so most sites were empty. Sites are very narrow and many are situated in such a way that you have neighbors on three sides. Not the place if you are seeking a secluded atmosphere. Very near Garden of the Gods attraction and Pikes Peak. Free WIFI was excellent.
RV Park in an urban area, just off a busy highway. Spaces are quite narrow, but grass and landscaping are immaculate. Convenient to Golden-Denver-Boulder area. The area can get a bit noisy, especially on weekends when the bar across the street operates at full volume. WIFI and cable are available for extra fees.
A very nice place. Not too large and very well kept with friendly and helpful staff. Spotless bath and laundry and nice grassy areas with mature trees. Free cable TV. No WIFI, but there is a modem hookup in the office. Located right in downtown Cortez, but fairly quiet for the location. Convenient to shopping (Walmart nearby) and only a few miles to Mesa Verde NP. Not much in the park for kids to do with no pool or playground, but city playground is across the highway.
Lake Murray Resort is a huge state-run complex with several campgrounds spread out around a 25 mile loop road around the lake. The campgrounds vary in age and facilities. We stayed in a newly developed CG next to the All Terrain Vehicle course (a third full-hookup facility in addition to those mentioned in earlier posts). Had a large, level concrete pad with trees and full hookups for $19 a night. However, I wouldn't recommend this particular CG unless you are an ATV fan. Finding a good site at Lake Murray can be confusing for first time visitors as each campground is separately maintained and you can wander for hours looking at the various options. The main ranger station can provide general information.
