As with our previous stay here (see my 2014 review) our supposed full hookup site's sewer was too far from the pad to be worth getting out extra hose for just an overnight stay. Fortunately, we were able to get satellite TV reception and the Wi-Fi system worked for us. The sites are fairly large but, as indicated above, the utility placement is poor. This park is fine if you don't need convenient sewer or TV. There is nothing within easy walking distance. Like most parks on this trip, there was no recycling.

This park has full hookup sites with cable TV and a Wi-Fi system that worked for us. There are many trees in the park, which means most sites are not satellite friendly. There are at least 3 individual bathrooms and laundry facilities are clean and functional. There is no pool but there is a small playground and a covered pavilion. There are no restaurants or stores within close walking distance.

Once again I am not as impressed with this park as many reviewers. There are FHU sites in all 3 sections of the park. Those in the trees seem to be occupied by extended stay customers. About half the sites in the open sections near the river give good views of the river. After decades of seeing river barges from this park and two other RV parks in Caruthersville, MO and Vidalia, LA, I don't see the fascination others rave about. Then there are the continuing negative remarks about the area you have to drive through to get to the park. Please tell me why it is "sketchy". The sites are a decent size and, except for the section where the sites are in the trees, most sites appear to be satellite friendly. Although you can get a good number of over the air stations from Memphis, there is no cable TV. Their 802.11 system worked OK for us. I see nothing recreational for kids in the park. The location and free laundry are the only things that make this park above ordinary.

We stayed here one night on our way south the first week of May and one night the last week of May heading back north. The park has decent facilities (FHU, cable TV ( 60 channels), and internet that has always worked for us. Although the sites have cement pads with a small cement patio, the pads are narrow and not level. The patios are so small that few RVs will be able to line up their doors with them. Large RVs will have to unhook their toads. The pool is small and there is (a recent reviewer said there was a spa) NO spa - that was removed several years ago. The single bathroom for each gender have only a sink, a toilet, and 2 small shower stalls. The laundry is 2 of each machine and relatively cheap. For some reason, we had a little trouble connecting to the cable on our second stay but it eventually worked. Most sites are open for satellite TV.

We stayed here 3 times in May for a total of 10+ days. Our rate was a combination of PPA and GS discounts plus a couple free nights. The physical facilities (large , pull-through, FHU, cement, sites with cable TV (60 channels) are very good. Most sites are large, cement (both pad and patio), level, pull-through, and open for satellite. The large pool that was closed for 5 days of our stay because of a broken ladder. There is also a playground next to the pool area. The one weekend we were there, the 802.11 system was almost useless because of the number of customers try to use it. We have never had that problem here before. Once again, golf cart users and speeders (both customer and employees) were a serious hazard for anyone walking in the park. The great facilities and amenities in this park are overshadowed by poor management and their failure to address safety concerns.

This park has mostly pull-through sites that are full hookup with cable TV and Wi-Fi. Since there appear to be many extended stay customers, you may want to call ahead to make sure there is a site available. The park has a small pool and decent bath and laundry facilities.

I think it has been 9 years since we last stayed here. After finding our first two choices for Memorial Day Weekend full, we stayed here. The park was fairly full with lots of families and groups here for the holiday. There is a separate extended stay section on the west side of the park with about 50 sites. Most of those were occupied. There are also 22 cabins, about half a dozen tent sites, and 16 side by side sites west of the lake. The main section has about 80 sites with most of those being FHU. There is a variety of combinations of 50 or 30 amp. back-in or pull-through, cable TV (60+ channels) or not. If you want more that local over the air TV, cable TV is almost a must as only a handful of sites appear to be even close to being satellite friendly (lots of trees). We had a lot of trouble with their 802.11 system. We could not connect initially and, almost every time we were able to connect, we lost the connection within an hour. I think the main problem is that now everygovy has an electronic devise. It used to be every site might have a computer - now, on a busy weekend with lots of families, every site has 4, 5, 6 devices being used. I walked one site where 3 kids were all siting there on there own devices. That bathroom facilities (in the main building and a large bath/laundry building on the east end of the park) are not adequate for a park this size. There was a van full of a dozen young, coed adults from the U.K. tent camping by the bath laundry and they dominated those bathrooms for over an hour in the evening and again in the early morning. We had a level, cement pad and patio, FHU, pull through site near that bathhouse. Most of the cement pads are surrounded by gravel - with all the trees, grass is not possibility. Most people will be bothered by traffic noise from I-10, the occasional train, the size of the sites (most are narrow and many are not long enough for RV and toad), and all the kids during the season.

I must repeat that only about 100 of the 206 listed sites are for RVs. The rest are cabins and chalets. Most of the RV sites are large pull-through sites. Unfortunately, most sites are not level, due mainly to a front or rear slope that is exacerbated by the location of the sewer in the front half of the site. You have to pull so far forward that you are off the middle part of the cement pad that is level. Cable TV is 60+ channels and most sites are satellite friendly. The Internet was "iffy" on a fairly crowded weekend with lots of families and kids. We would lose the connection several times every hour or two. The park's amenities (pool, playground, fishing pond, various sports courts, etc.) are very good, but the way management and security lets their customers get away with dangerous behavior (I was run off sidewalks several times by golf carts is just one example) really lowers my rating. The bathrooms and showers were filthy but the laundry is cheap. The weekend rate is also a big negative. As with most area RV parks, there is no recycling.

I was not as impressed with this park as most people have been. The roads and sites are paved/cement and most sites are pull-through of a decent size. The park was fairly full with mostly extended stay customers - many of them appeared (lots of pick up trucks with company logos) to be staying here because they are working in the area. We were in a level, concrete, pull-through site. The cable TV was about 40 channels and the Internet was OK for us in the RV. There are few trees, so most sites appear to be open enough for good satellite TV reception. On the surface, the park is quite nice: 2 pools (family and adult), a playground, a large fishing pond, 2 bathhouses and laundries, a meeting house, extra parking for vehicles and boats, and a small gym with exercise machines. Unfortunately, both pools are small and the adult pool is one of those "cutely" shaped pools in which you can't even swim 10' in straight line. I was able to enjoy the family pool since I was the only one there initially and I could actually swim 20'. The men's section of the bathhouse nearest us was under repair. The only thing usable were the stalls. The only urinal was off the wall and all the shower heads from the 3 showers stalls were removed. All this debris was lying in front of the only sink. There was no mention of this situation when we checked in. I saw no restaurants or good stores (Dollar General doesn't count) within easy walking distance of the park.

This park has full hookup sites that are mostly pull-through. The back 2/3 of the park appears to be extended stay with the front section for transients and travelers. The cable TV has 70 channels and the Internet worked fine for us. We enjoyed the pool and hot tub. The laundry and bathrooms are barely adequate for a park this size. The nightly fee is way too high.

Date of Stay:

The RV sites are the best aspect of this RV park. They are FHU, mostly pull-through, with long cement pads and patios. with grass between the fairly wide sites. The cable TV is almost 70 channels. The pool is located in a courtyard in the center of the hotel and is at least 300 yards from the RV park. As others have noted, check in is at the hotel. You can call the hotel from a phone in the RV park, but we usually simply go to the hotel desk first. One of the 4 machines in the laundry was out of order and the washer do not have hot water. One of the 3 men's bathrooms was out of order and the other 2 were dirty and semi-flooded by shower runoff. The lack of internet service in the RV park is probably the biggest drawback to this park.

Date of Stay:

This park has mediocre facilities (FHU, limited cable, OK internet), but inadequate bathrooms/showers (poorly maintained). The sites are mostly back-ins and are not very level. They are fairly tight when the park is anywhere near full. The park is mostly asphalt and cement with a little grass and a few trees. So most sites are satellite friendly. There is nothing recreational in the park and it is a long walk to the hotel's indoor pool. For me, the biggest negative is the check in at the hotel. You will be lucky to park your rig within 200 yards of the hotel entrance. As with most parks in this area, there is no recycling.

See my 9/14 review for a detailed description of the park and its' facilities/amenities. They have resolved the cable TV issue and now have basic cable with about 30 channels. As requested by admin, I will try to repeat some of the things I said in my 9/14 review: Sites are FHU, mostly pull-through, with cable TV and decent internet. There is nothing recreational in the park. The bathrooms and laundry are inadequate for a park this size. The staff is friendly.

Date of Stay:

The sites in this RV park are the only positive for this park. About 1/3 of the sites are pull-through and the rest are back-ins. The sites are an adequate size with "grass" between the sites. That is it for the good. The sites have W&E hookups but no sewer or cable connections. There is no internet available in the park. Most sites appear to be satellite friendly. The bathrooms, showers and laundry were filthy (maintenance cutbacks) and having to check in at the hotel (to save money by not staffing the RV park office) is a hassle. There is a dump behind the hotel but you make have to wait in line if anyone else is leaving when you do. The price is ridiculous for a park with only W&E, dirty facilities, and no other amenities. Not worth the stop unless you want to be near the casino.

See my 9/13 review for a description of this park and its' facilities. As usual, we had a FHU site with cable and at site internet that worked fine for us. The main thing that has changed since my last visit (10/14) is that they have resolved the cable issue. They now have basic cable with about 20 channels. The onsite managers are friendly and helpful.
