This has the bones to be a really nice park. Herein is the problem at least for those who travel. We are finding more and more TT parks are catering to the "annual" campers who take up all the large, nice and/or fhu or 50 amp sites leaving those of us who travel from park to park and want to see the country in a dilemma when we try to find a spot we can fit in while 100 spots are taken by campers whose occupants are not even in the park. (after labor day, sites are full, but nobody here). When we arrived here, there was 1 spot we could fit in and get a fhu albeit 30amp when we need 50. There needs to be a compromise with members/annuals/management so that there is not just w/e for those who want to travel. The roads are dusty and a bit rutted, but that is also normal for TT parks. That said, the amenities worked, the employees friendly and we would return if in the area. I do hope that something can be worked out as far as the annuals so we ALL have opportunities for the same amenities.

First of all, let me say this review in no way reflects the employees at this park, they were exemplary and we saw them working hard in oppressive August heat. That said, we really wanted to love this park, we've camped there twice and both times had pretty much the same experience. We have a 40ft Fifth wheel that is all-electric and uses 50amp service. We knew going in the park only had 30amp so we were ready to adjust accordingly. However, the 30amp at site 61 was not true "30 amp" Our PMS service would only allow us to run 1 ac and absolutely nothing else, so when checked we were actually running 27 amps. To run the microwave or anything we would have to shut down the ac. In August, unacceptable. We've run 30amp plenty of times and been capable of running more than just an ac. Thousand Trails has the bones of many beautiful parks in their system if they could see fit to invest in electrical upgrades and road upgrades. Along with the electric, the road was literally a dust bowl, the gravel used evidently crushes to a white powdery substance that even at the 5mph speed limit leaves a cloud of dust and a covering of white over all your equipment. This should not be so. No one wants to have their units and vehicles covered with so much dust you cannot see out of the windshields! Again, I know no park is perfect, and even with the dust we so want to love this park, it is a beautiful setting, lake, pool..etc. and not that far from many attractions, Lynchburg, Appomatox, etc. We probably will not return due to the electrical issues in the park. Sadly.

So very disappointed. We planned for 10 days here, but when we arrived they had us in a site we could not fit in. The one other site that was available had electrical issues and our power management kept kicking our electric off due to low voltage. The maintenance fellow came and confirmed that there is indeed low voltage in this campground and that one of the boxes actually caught fire from overheating. There are 575 sites here and they have packed them in here regardless of the electrical issues. Again, very disappointed as we had hoped to visit this area as we have never been here. Getting a reservation last minute in this area is next to impossible. The roads are narrow and trees on both sides, even still we would have liked to have stayed. If you are not a kid person, this is not the campground for you as they are everywhere. Nice to see them outside playing. We left after one night so we cannot comment on the amenities. Without electric in an all electric unit, we cannot stay and risk ruining our rv. If you have a smaller unit with no management system you may love this place, bigger 50amp units beware.

I agree with some of the other reviewers, we were expecting more from "escapees headquarters." It also reminded us of a 70's campground with very limited space between sites. We were here to basically check out the care facility and also spend time with friends who were here. All the utilities worked fine. Trees could be an issue, as one touched our awning. We did not complain so I'll not say we were dissatisfied. However, I would never want to park under another one here. The squirrels had a hayday jumping on our roof and into the trees. All in all, we were a bit disappointed in this park, for all the room they have here, I guess we expected something a bit more spacious, especially as far as the sites were concerned. Picnic table old and nasty, never used. Livingston is a nice little town, but there is limited amounts of things to do in the area. We would only return when passing through the area.

This is a nice little park in Goliad, approx. half way from Donna-Houston. We stayed 4 nights and had a delightful time. The park sites are gravel but we had no trouble leveling as the park is on fairly flat ground. We stayed near the office, wifi worked very well, minimal traffic noise but it is right as you leave town on 59, so some traffic noise is expected. Electric and full hook ups worked perfectly without any issues. Cable was a bit fuzzy, but not a deal breaker for us. For the price, we feel it was an exceptional value. Used discount PPA with all 4 nights. Management very cordial and made us feel very welcome. There are a few monthlys here, but spread throughout the edges and hardly saw them. Not a park for children as there is no play area. Would love to give 9-10 but lack of extras keeps me from doing so. However, to us it is definitely more than sufficient. Nice little town of Goliad with some great Texan history and a nice little historic downtown and courthouse.

This is a nice little overnight. They take Passport America, which really makes it more inviting. There is a very nice lake on the property with room to walk pets. We had a pull-through site facing the lake. The sites are somewhat close together, but most pull-throughs are. Our biggest issue was the ants around our spot. There were mounds everywhere, but they must have sprayed recently as we didn't really see any to speak of. Just wanted to make you aware to check before setting up, especially if you have pets. The utilities all worked perfectly. The office manager quite friendly. It was a great place in the middle of nowhere to stop for a night or 2. The downside is there is an above ground coal mine next to the campground that is a bit noisy, and the highway on the other side. For an overnight though, these can be overlooked as we did not hear much noise in the RV.

It's Branson! So you have to remember everything is on a hillside, this park included. Although not steep, we noticed leveling was difficult for some motorhomes as their tires were off the ground. We really liked this campground for it's friendliness and proximity to town, yet still out of town. The issues we have are, Our site was awning to camper with our neighbors on both sides. We were stationed in the middle of the park. The outer rim of the RV sites seem to be a bit more spaced out so you don't step out practically into the neighbor's sewer arrangement. Next time, we would insist on one of those. The sites are gravel with a pad, so being situated on a hillside, they do have water runoff which probably makes for unlevel sites. Not much they can do about that, I don't think. The roads could be in a bit better shape, but we have definitely camped in worse. The dog run was along the side of the park, sufficient, but nothing to write home about. Would be nice if they had an actual fenced off area where you could let the dogs loose for a bit. Even with those issues, we would return. You're in Branson, chances are you are not going to be spending long amounts of time in the RV, so keep that in mind if rejecting this campground based on my findings. The good: Very friendly and accommodating. We were there for a rally and they did a superb job of facilitating it. The staff were just a delight and really enjoyed talking to them on several occasions (they were the older couple taking folks to sites). The pool and all facilities were very clean and neat. All electric worked perfectly, even with a completely full campground.

We stayed here for a rally in September. The folks were very accommodating and took our group around on the trolley. The sites were a bit close together, but we made it work and our group really enjoyed our time there. All utilities worked as they should and the only downside I see is that it is quite expensive for the sites given and we picked up some stink bugs while we were there (no fault of the campground!). This is about the only place in town and we would definitely stop there again if in the area.

I gave this park a 9 not based on resort amenities, but because of the absolute help and joy a couple of the staff were. They made sure you had all the information you needed to see sights in the area, recommended food places and helped you to your site all with a smile and genuine enthusiasm. We stayed at the more expensive spots with river front view and thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it. It's a bit noisy outside, you are across the river from the interstate but for us it was a welcome relief to have full hookups and reliable electric after staying in a Thousand Trails for a week. The park looks very small for big rigs when you first enter, but we had no trouble with our 40 foot. There is very little room between sites as this little campground, as quaint as it is, is very small and compact. Expensive for what you get, but considering it is the west coast it was pretty well in line with everyone else. A great place to spend a few days or a week.

This is a darling little park, very well kept, excellent for an overnight stay while traveling or even a few days. The utilities worked perfectly and there was grass in between the sites even though the pull through sites were close (most expect that anymore with pull throughs). The back-ins had more space between them, but look to be taken by longer term folks but didn't seem to deter from the park much at all. They have another section in the back across a little lake, but we did not venture back there to be able to comment on that section. My review is on the front section located near the office. Very easy access off of I-10, level spots and flat campground, easy for big units. The price was Passport America. Not a resort, but a very nice clean place to stop overnight.

This was our last attempt at a Thousand trails park. Just like many of the other TT parks, it is run down, roads torn up and rutted, utilities outdated and sites almost impossible to get into with a bigger unit. (38' or above). The trees are not trimmed at the sites and you cannot maneuver well enough to keep from hitting them with the rig. The park road 37 into the park as well had low hanging branches that were just not avoidable. Our 50 amp service we were lucky enough to get, crashed, so that again was another issue. What is so upsetting about these parks is, they have the bones to be excellent and beautiful parks if management would just fix these issues, take out about every other site and make it more accessible to bigger rigs. Don't trust the photos on the web page, they are very deceiving in our opinion and make the parks look like something they are not. We've tried several TT parks and they are all basically the same run down condition. If you have a big rig, enter at your own risk.

This is a big dusty parking lot...That said, you are in New Mexico where that is pretty much all there is. This is also an Escapees Park and the price is perfect for an overnight stay. All Utilities worked fine. You will be close to neighbors on both sides. The park is flat, very easy access even with the biggest of rigs. Fellow checking us in very polite and friendly. We would definitely use this as an overnight again. Not a resort so don't expect much, its a place to hold up for the night and rest.

This is a mega park with thousands of park models and RVs. We were there after most snowbirds had left so it was not crowded; however, I can imagine in the winter it is a nightmare with all the parks in the area full to the brim at one time. The traffic in mesa was busy even in this off season. The roads are tight, and when crowded I cannot imagine how they get everyone checked in. We found that our rig barely fit off the road into the one spot available for check in. We had a guide take us to the spot but it was impossible to get into that site with a tree there so we had to move next door, even still had to dodge a park model and sign post across street to back it in. The facilities are very nice once you are there. They have several pools and a very nice Grassy dog run at the back of the park. All utilities worked fine and the folks we met who live there were very very nice. Our biggest issue was probably at check in. After a weary day of driving, it took forever! We had to give them information for a 3 night stay that we have never given out any other place - example Vin number, emergency contacts, and the such. They also had a place to give the lender name and phone number, if you financed your rig, but I refused to put in some of that information for a 3 night stay! Was told the state requires that now. Crazy! Long term, this might be a great place to stay, not sure I would jump through all those hoops for a day or 2.

Talk about your oasis in the desert! We were very happy to find this after driving all day in the desert. The location is easy off the interstate, and the roads wide and easily accessible for larger units. The manager was very nice and accommodating. the site was level and all utilities worked fine (50amp). The park is actually a mobile home park with RV sites as well. We stayed at the spot next to the office/pool area which is where I believe they try to put most RVers. We were there after all the snowbirds left so the place was pretty empty and quiet which was nice after some of the spots we had in California. They have a very nice lake with a walking trail around it. We would definitely use this park if we are in the area again!

We stayed one night, the check in was quick, and the girl at the desk friendly and quick. Watch the overhang in the front of the building, it's 13'6, there is parking to the side for tall rigs. Nice place to pull off the road for a day or 2, the utilities all worked as should. The RV park is basically a parking lot with grass/dirt/plants between sites, but very ample for a one night stay. There is a swimming pool and spa to use but we did not so cannot review it. Access to the park was easy with several restaurants and gas stations within a block. Considering what California has to offer in price and facilities for bigger rigs, we found this one of our better, easier stays. Price reflects Passport America. Good for a last minute overnight stop, but call ahead if you can, it seems to fill up quickly.
