This park has gone from being an RV Park to a campground with the sale to Yogi Bear. Also the name change from RV Ranch to Rustic must have meant a reduction in lawn and landscaping care as well as the park has a run-down look that it did not have in the past. While it is fuller than it was the last time we were there, so is the noise from all the kids that are free to run ramped (unsupervised). From an economic stand point, it was a positive, but from a full timers or an RV'ers (non camper) stand point, it is a negative. No longer is there an adult pool and hot tub, it is now all family. The third pool is "still" under construction as is the "new" water park addition. When it is completed, it will draw even more young families. Wet clothes were hanging from many RV's (campers) and we even saw a number of clothes lines stretched around the park that has always been against the rules. Lawn carpet abound now and will kill what little grass is left but it still needs mowed and weeded. The 55 plus RV'er will want to take a wide swing away from this park due to the unsupervised kids running around the park at all hours, we observed them 7 am to past 12 pm. The park now rents golf carts and peddle powered carts and trikes that are all over the park with no care or concern of other traffic. The only reason we would consider staying again is due to the location to family in the area but will be looking into other options. We were disappointed!

We stayed 3 nights at PA rates. Pull through sites are down a hill on gravel roads that had washed out with big ruts. They gave us an option of a clear site so we could set up satellite dish. WiFi only at clubhouse. Interstate noise not an issue on pull through sites. Many trees need trimmed to keep roads and overhead clear. Park is older with many of the roads and sites in need of maintenance. Buildings need repair and paint. Park should open up for all public to increase usage, not just camping club members and use the increased revenue for maintenance.

Since becoming a Yogi Bear park, it has changed and is not nearly as nice a place to stay. We also observed that the park is not as well maintained as it had been in the past. Grass was well over ankle tall, and we saw a lot of blowing trash. They still have a lot of tree limbs hanging into the sites which drag along the top and side of your rig. The pea gravel on the sites is deep and tracks in and is difficult to walk through. The adult only restriction at the main pool and spa has been deleted, and it is also now a family pool/spa leaving no adult only area. Construction on the 3rd pool has stopped. They now provide "hay-wagon" and "fire truck" rides for park guests but the movie and book exchange has been done away with. While the park has a greater appeal for the younger families, they have reduced the attractiveness to us matured RV'ers. We will look for another park for future stops.

This is a campground, not an RV park. First impression, very narrow entrance road that will not allow meeting another vehicle. Staff did not appear to be happy when we met them. Interior gravel roads very narrow and had deep ruts. Cross streets were partly/mostly blocked by vehicles parked behind/in-front of RV's. Most roads were one way, which helped. Park is older and was designed for small campers and tents, not todays large RV's. Full hookup sites are very short and have no place to park a vehicle other than in the street, awnings are not usuable due to the narrow sites. Large trees block satellite access but local TV antenna reception was very good. Water pressure was 10-20 psi which made showers interesting. Grass was mowed while we were here but most of the park is in need of TLC.

We have stayed at this park a number of times in the past but probably will not again. The park rules are simply not being enforced. People not picking up after pets and are feeding the birds; it is becoming a problem with droppings everywhere. Many vehicles at a single site and parked on the grass or half in the roadway. We ended up backing half a block with the rig because of vehicles parked half in the street with no one around. Golf carts are everywhere and take the right of way in the streets and the boardwalk to the beach with many being driven by young kids with no supervision. We observed many were parked on the grass or half way in the streets. Cable is now an extra daily charge. WiFi was intermittent but good when it worked. The mosquitoes were horrendous. In Port A, the city sprays nightly. On the plus side, they have a great breakfast on weekends, even though the prices have gone up. In general, it appears the park has peaked and is starting to slide down hill from lack of care by owners and mangers.

New park, officially opened in February and was quickly filled. Has all concrete streets and sites, new sod and palm trees between sites. Presently adding 40 additional sites. Great rates and sounds like reservations for 2010 winter season are filled, but there are a number of summer sites available. Great owners and managers, and have a really good staff of Workampers assisting. All hard surface access streets and it's close to Supercenter Wal-Mart, HEB grocery, bay fishing and the island activities, but far enough away from the gulf and its salt spray. Easy access to hwy 35 to go to Rockport/Fulton or Corpus. Without a doubt, one of the nicer parks in the area with single, one and a half and double wide sites, it is not crowded like most of the parks in the area. As fulltimers, we will make this our homebase.

Good park at west end of 76 strip on Sheppard Hills Pkwy. Easy in and out to travel the town with all of the colored routes they have set up. Would rate higher if they had wifi. The motel/RV Park manager and her husband were great and made our stay even more enjoyable. Other RV guests we visited with also made the same comments to us. Sites are small but took our 37' 5th wheel, although we could not park in front of the coach. The manager had us park on the site beside ours instead of in the parking lot. We had planned to spend a month but ended up having to change plans and leave after a week but will return again.

This is primarily a membership park but also has 40 guest grass sites with 30/50 amp service to many of them. Guests have full use of park amenities, pool, tennis, mini golf, basketball, fishing pond, boat launch on the river, cook-outs and movies on specific nights. Manager was very helpful. No internet but restaurant in town has free Wi-Fi and serves a great breakfast and locals provide a farmers market on the town square. Great place to stay if your waiting to get work done at one of the local RV shops.

The park is what the name implies, full of big, really big, oak trees. It is a very nice older park with very long gravel sites scattered among the big trees. Most are nearly level with one or two small shims to do the job. Owner/manager is very accommodating. Will stay again when passing through the area as it is only 4 miles off the interstate.

Campground is built around the lake created from a dirt borrow pit when they built I80 and I55 interchanges. There was some truck noise from the interstate but was not excessive. This is primarily a membership park but does take guests. We were there for 3 weeks, it was the closest rv park to friends we were visiting in the Chicago area. Manager is very helpfull and is a hands on working manager, putting in long days, most every day. Wifi is available in the office for a fee as is fishing in the lake. Other amenities are included with site, pool and sand beach swim lake, basketball, mini golf. Ice and some rv items available in the office. We will stay again when in the area.

Nice park, second year we've been here. Monthly rate $355 + Elect. Nice pool, hot tub and shuffleboard. Community center small but has some activities available. Location near mid valley, easy access in and out via Hwy 509 for valley visiting. Far enough from Hwy 77 so there is no traffic noise. RV park has very large grass/dirt sites with ample room between them. No rain so far this year so no mud. Grass needs mowed to improve appearance. Park employees friendly and helpful.

Nice park that is a part of a full service marina. County road into park is a little rough but gravel interior roads are OK. Very large and wide gravel and grass sites, most with some shade. RV park has one section with some 50 amp service full hook up. The rest of the sites are all 30 amp. The other three sections are 30 amp water and electric only. Dump station on site. They also have air conditioned camping cabins for those who do not RV or tent camp. A great place to combine water sports and camping.

Old section of park is very nicely landscaped, but many of the trees need trimming to prevent damage to your RV, and sites are a little tight for todays sized rigs. The new south section is still under construction with rock roads. Only about half were completed when we were there. There are larger sites, but with no trees or other landscaping along the highway the interstate traffic noise is quite loud. Interstate noise in older section is well buffered and is quite tolerable. Access into and out of the park is difficult due to cross-over bridge construction at the time of our stay. Park has the cleanest restrooms and laundry areas we have seen in 4 years of fulltiming. Pool and community rooms are well maintained. Liked the location for visiting family in the area, but park could work on their hospitality. It was a little cold and we did not feel they really cared that we were there.

What a find! Located on Hwy 77, about an hour south of Waco. Easy in and out. Small town private RV park. Older but in very good condition. Level gravel sites and roads but well maintained. Staff very friendly and helpful. Stayed one night while in transit but will for sure plan on staying again on way to Corpus or the RGV.

Very nice new park (approx 2 yrs) just south of Worlds of Fun Park and just west of Oceans of Fun. Take Parvin Rd exit, off I435 and go east, up hill. All hard surface roads with level concrete sites, large concrete patios having very large vinyl covered metal picnic tables and charcoal grills. Great grass, no mud or gravel with landscaped sites and lighted power stations. Very nice facilities in a new building with restrooms, showers and pool. Free wifi was available and worked very well from our site. Summer rate is pricey but spring rate was in line. We will stay 2 weeks, 7th night free. Check on-line as rates do vary. Great stop-over and access for snowbirds.
