Our rate shown is the Passport America discounted rate. Very nice campground away from the busy highway. Stay here if you can. As others have said, the owners are just plain excellent. They are very friendly and run a great camp. Alpaca's are a nice addition to the camp. Sites are plenty big and leveling is not a problem. Utilities are up to date and in good shape. The bath house is clean but needs updating. Long term campers (the bread and butter of most campgrounds) have well maintained sites and do not mess up the look of the campground. That's an indicator of the good management. I'd stay here again in a heartbeat!

Rate cited is Passport America rate. Bread and butter for this camp is long-term workers. Lots of clutter and crap laying about. There aren't a lot of nightly sites available. Not the most level of camps. Laundry very clean. Bathhouse not so clean and in need of repair. I-35 near by and you can readily hear it. Roads are gravel. Many potential roof snags because trees have not been trimmed. It worked for a night.

Rated cited is the Passport America rate. This is a very good camp to stay at if you are traveling the I-35 corridor. It's close to the highway but not so close as to hear noise. It is quite large with the park's bread and butter being seasonal longer-term campers. Sites were neat and no clutter. Management obviously does not allow the usual crap you often see at long-term camper sites. The office and showers appear new. TV reception via antenna is good. Roads are mostly paved with stone walking paths. If coming from the south, continue on the frontage road UNDER the overpass and down the hill to the entrance sign. Great value with Passport America.

This is a very nice, newer camp on the TX/OK border. Current cost is $22/nt. This goes up to $35/nt Mon-Thur beginning 1 Apr 14 and $45/nt Fri-Sun. Not sure whether the free buffet voucher will continue. I feel the camp is fairly priced at the current price of $22. WiFi is snail slow. I never did find the showers. No TV hookups. TV via antenna is good. I can't say I'd stay here at the new rates. Roads are all paved and easy access to I-35. Diesel near the entrance is priced quite low. Gas, not so low.

This camp has gone to the dogs. We've been staying here on our trip south for years. It use to be a great little spot to stop, do a little shopping, eat out and continue on our way. It's just a dump now. I had to try 4 different sites in order to get one with usable electric. Maintenance seems nonexistent. Long-term Residents take up most of the usable spaces. We'll be looking for an alternative in the future. Maintenance pays dividends, why can't management get that through their heads???

Nice little park and the price is right. First two days free but a donation makes sense. The bathroom, sink and toilet only, was heated but the water was not on. While each site does not have sewer there is a sewer dump. There was water at each site. We stayed here when the temperature was 10 deg. and 10" of snow on the ground. Sites (concrete) and roadways were all plowed. Road noise was noticeable. Certainly beats staying in the Wal-Mart parking lot across the road. We called the City offices prior to stopping here and the folks there are really great and informative. City needs to place a sign out at the Wal-Mart intersection/light telling people that the campground exists.

You can pay in excess of $30 elsewhere in town or, using Passport America, pay $14 per night here. It would be easy to pick this park apart and complain about many things, but, you get all the services and at a good price. This park is quite and safe, unlike what was stated by an earlier reviewer. No highway noise. Staff are very helpful. If you're in BCS to spend time in the area, you'll be wise to park here. Use your savings to buy some Shiner Bock!!

We were disappointed with this campground. Maybe this is a nice place in the summer, but here in December it might be a place to pass up. While the website states its open all year, don’t plan on the bathhouse being open or water at your site being on. We called the phone number for the campground in advance to try and learn this, but no answer. If you leave a message, don’t count on getting a return call. Sites are short and rocky. All the sites of any length are occupied by long-term residents. If you have a dog, be aware that there are plenty of sand burrs in the grassy flats below the campground. Access to the campground is very easy. The gravel road into the park is a non-issue. It seems well maintained and we’re only talking about 1.3 miles. The nightly rate is $30 which, if you do not have a discount card, would be ridiculous. We used our Passport America card. Not surprisingly you self-register.

This campground was a pleasant surprise. It’s located on the south side of the Gainesville Factory Shops. It’s nothing special, but at $15/night it does not have to be. There is no bathhouse, but you do have full-hookups at your site and they are on all year. The campground caters to the traveler, although there are several long-term residents. You’re near the expressway, but you won’t hear much highway noise. The grounds are well maintained and plenty of grass with no sand burrs. We were going to stay at another campground north of the Texas border but reviews of tons of sand burrs caused us to try this campground. We’re glad we did. At night, it’s almost daylight out due to the security lights on the back side of the factory outlet buildings. Getting to the campground is easy from exit 501 off I-35. Do not go through the main entry arch area of the mall. Go to Prime Outlets Blvd near the highway overpass and proceed west around the back of the mall area. The highest I’ll rate a campground that does not have any facilities is a 7. That’s only fair to the owners who go through the trouble and expense of providing more. One nice thing about this location is that there is a Cracker Barrel restaurant at the other end of the mall. Other than that it’s kind of isolated. If you call the campground number you’ll get a list of phone extension options. The RV option leads nowhere. Select security and they know everything about the park. Self-serve registration.

What a pleasant park with great people. Don't waste your time out near the freeway. Take a little effort and try this park. You won't regret it. Nice little garden bench for reading or soaking up the views. Exceptionally clean bathrooms and showers. Spacious sites. No problem with cell phone signal and computer connectivity. Our nightly rate was $16 using Passport America. They treat PA folks very well!

[Admin Note: January 2014--It has been reported that this park is currently closed but may reopen. Please check with the park before attempting to stay there.] Nice park. There is about a foot of snow on ground, but the park was open. We had a choice of two sites. Campground host was very nice. No bathhouse available due to winter months. Site was level. No cell phone or TV signal. 12 miles from the interstate via good roads. Not much more to say, given the weather.

Arkansas does a wonderful job with their State Parks and tourism. Lake Dardanelle SP is very nice. The cheaper camp sites are short and fairly steep. You'll be challenged to level your rig front to back. The more expensive sites are large and level. If possible, pick you own site then register. Over age 65 gets a 25% discount. Can't beat that with a stick. Very wooded campground with a great view of the lake. Bathroom was heated and clean. Weak cell phone signal. No TV signal. Satellite would be tough because of the trees. There is a nuclear power plant on lake. No big deal. The visitor center is unreal with great displays. Will stay here again.

There are no bathhouses, thus no rating of them. This is the best campground on the ocean and is part of the Silver Slipper Casino, about 1/2 mile west of this campground. They run this park like a hotel, the wrong way to do it. The policies are dumb. If you sign up for players club at the casino, you get a one-night-free coupon. If your spouse also signs up, you get another coupon but you can't use it during this visit. It expires in 30 days so it will likely be a waste. The campground host is a hoot. A very nice fella! He'll do his best to make your stay a good one. TV via antenna gets about 10 channels. Cell phone is in and out, mostly out. There is a great ocean view. Sites on the beach like this in California will run you $40 with no utilities. This is much better!

Nice park. Get 10% discount for AARP. You also get 2 breakfast buffet coupons valued at $7/person per stay. Buffet is darn good. Sites are level and there is paved parking for your unit. Side sites are grassy. It's quiet at night. Free shuttle to the casino 24/7. Excellent security. Check-in is a snap. Bathrooms are clean and heated. Cable TV is good but only standard definition. Locals off the antenna are good and in HD. Propane is available at $3/metered gallon. Lots to see in the local area. Was disappointed in Coke and Doll museums. Battlefield was good (especially Cairo exhibit) and the riverfront murals were excellent. Great place to spend one or several nights. Take time to tour the town. People are very friendly. Will stay here again.

Campground is right on I-10. You will hear highway traffic at all times. There were probably 15 or 20 FEMA type, park model trailers that took up all of the sites away from the interstate. No water working the day we were here. This is just an overnight park, nothing more. The park is clean and the staff was very nice. If you need help setting up your site the manager will assist. Easy in and out pull-through sites. You will not get any roof antenna TV and cell phone signal is zero bars. Price of $15 was okay.
