An older family friendly park. Owner is awesome! Talk to the office for directions, as it your GPS will not be accurate. You first trip in you will wonder where in the world you are going, but after the first time, it is fine! LOL This is not a park for an overnight stop. Lake is dry due to lack of rain in Texas the past few years but the park is still a nice quite place to hang out for a few days.

Park is now called "Rocky Top". We just happened to see it from the highway as we drove into town. It is very clean and perfect for an overnight stop. The sites are huge enough that hopefully plans are to add more sites. There are no facilities, restrooms, etc. Pay is on the honor system, an envelope at a little pay station. It appears that most people there are workers in the area. We took the last available site. This will definitely be a place for an overnight stop for us.

I have stayed at Dad's many times through the years. It is a friendly, comfortable, and convenient place to stay. At this time, because of a lot of construction in Victoria, most parks are full and overflowing. This visit, it was necessary to park in overflow parking--but, even so, we had full hookups. If you need to be there for a week or more, call ahead and every effort will be made to get you in a regular site. They have a very nice club house for rallies and there are some activities planned during the winter. Dad's is a safe and secure park without the frills.

This is a difficult park to rate. We did not enjoy it, but it was, for the most part, neat, clean and had amenities that many will find attractive. We were excited when I stumbled across the website for Long Island. I wish I had read it more carefully. This is NOT an RV resort. It is a park model community. If an owner has an unimproved lot, it can be put in a rental pool for RVs. So, we were parked in along with the multitude of park model/permanent residents. Some sites are on a canal, but they are not available in the rental pool To us, part of the fun of RVing is visiting with other RVers, so this could not happen in this instance. Check in was slow, the young lady in the office could care less if we were there or not. I had to ask for a map of the area to be able to find our site. The site was large enough with fairly decent grass. Your unit must be self contained since there are not restroom facilities available. My husband walked across to the golf course and said it was in really bad shape, so we did not play. We saw lots of others playing while we were there. It would probably be a great place to live, but it is not what we look for in an RV resort. It is a very secure park with a guard at the gate at all times. We were told that Long Island was formerly affiliated with the Outdoor Resort Parks. It must have been decades ago because it is nothing like the OR Is that we are familiar with. It was a very disappointing and expensive week. Actually, we paid for a week and left after 5 days. We normally avoid the KOA parks, but there is one located across the causeway that would have been much better choice for us. We will not return.

Friendly staff, convenient location. Clean and well maintained RV Park. Free but very weak Wi-Fi, weak Verizon signal. Because of the construction going on in Victoria, sites in the area are at a premium. At this time, I suggest you call ahead. We have stayed here several times and find it a nice place for overnight or a few days. Passport America accepted--20% off in Winter months.

I should have realized that this park had an “attitude” when a non-refundable $50 deposit was required when making reservations. We asked if we could change sites and park with an RV club, but we could not change sites without losing the deposit. We have been RVing for 40 years, and the staff here is, without a doubt, the most unfriendly and rudest that we have ever encountered. Had it not been for the deposit, we would have left. We talked to several neighbors and club members. ALL agreed. Some ridiculous rules apply. Our rally cannot have breakfast before 9 AM because we are not allowed in the club room any earlier. For dinner, beverages: wine, beer, booze, must be put into plastic since glass is not allowed in the room. They are very strict on dog rules: breed, size limit (25lbs) and where dogs are allowed. When you come to Quartzsite, you must remember this is the desert: everything is dusty and dirty. There are no trees and no grass. RV parks are no exception and should not be downgraded because of this. And, do not come in January without reservations. This is a mecca for RVers and desert rats and should be “experienced” at least once. This RV park is the newest and possibly the nicest in the area. Small concrete patios at each site but poorly placed and we were unable to park where the patio was at our door. Sites are gravel, streets are paved. Because of the staff and overall negative attitude of the park we will NOT stay here again.

I rarely rate any resort a 10: but this is definitely worth it. This is a new resort, only open 2 or 3 years. We saw a highway billboard, and decided to check it out. The lots are for sale and many are large enough for a small house along with the RV. Rather than describing it, check the website. The place is awesome. Even better, we checked in about 11 AM and it happened to be "hamburger day" for residents and guests, so we got free lunch! We are considering a couple of months at The Palms in the winter. The map on this site is a little off, but I cannot figure out how to change it. Go by the map on the resort website. We will be back.

This is nice country park with potential. The sites are large with grass (weeds) between sites. But it needs to be mowed. It looks bad and makes it unpleasant to be outside. There are no amenities, but we don't use them anyway and prefer not to pay for them. The owner is very friendly and helpful. The only problem is that there in a pecan orchard adjacent to the property. Several times a day there is a very loud BOOM (!) to scare the birds away. Since our dog is frightened of loud noises she won't go outside. And, when we leave, it is necessary to take her. Except for this, we would definitely stay here again, and if you don't have a "scaredy cat" critter, I recommend this park.

The site we had was HUGE: a very long pull through. Almost too long because of backing the tow vehicle back every time we left: LOL. Lots of grassy (weeds) area between sites which needed to be mowed. I don't know, but I feel that the recent heavy rain made it not possible to mow. Park is older, but appears to be well maintained. Near the interstate, but I was never aware of noise from it. There was a picnic table at our site. We will certainly stay here next time in the area.

Rate shown is with the Golden Age Passport. Since we usually go to resort type parks and rarely dry camp, it is hard for me to rate this type of campground. Check in was easy. Rangers came by and asked that we move the Jeep since 2 tires were touching the grass. Then came by at 8:10 to "remind" us to turn off the generator. They were very pleasant. Our site was adequate for our 40 foot motorhome. There were several sites that would have worked. Pulling out was really tight: would never have made it if we had hooked up the toad. The marina nearby had plenty of room for hooking up on level ground. A nice place to camp if you like "roughing it". An easy drive north to the falls on one day, then to Old Faithful the next.

Camp "host" was useless when I stopped to ask for information. We had to make a tight loop to get back to the entrance to the camping area. Site #4 was adequate for a 40' motorhome. Very close to the Flaming Gorge Dam. It was on the road that we were traveling and it was time to stop. Otherwise, we would not have stopped here. If you want a primitive campsite near the water, it would be fine. Nightly rate was using Golden Age Passport.

Date of Stay:

A very nice, clean, well maintained CG. Owners are very nice, friendly, and helpful. Sites are a little tight, but not a problem in a 40' MH. Definitely the nicest place in town to stay. While here, visit the state bath house for a mineral soak.

Date of Stay:

A better than average KOA. A very nice park with large shade trees and friendly staff. Golf at the nearby Cove View Muni course. Just ignore the mobile home park at the entrance.

Date of Stay:

This is by far, the worst campground I have ever stayed in. Weeds, dirty, rundown. The mineral pools look inviting, until you get in. We were told that they were cleaned that morning. We only stayed in a couple of minutes because of the scum, algae, dog waste floating, etc. We went to town to the free state bath house. We only stayed one night and only that because we could not find anyplace else to park. We drove through in the car before taking the motor home out, then drove around town looking for a parking lot or some place else, but had no choice. Moved the next morning to the other park in town. (Much nicer and less expensive, too). We WILL NOT stay here again.

Solstice is a new resort, opening in May, 2010. At this time, to attract customers, they are offering the second night free. We were also here a couple of months ago, and we were the second "customer". Eventually, this will be a 10-10-10 resort for Class A motor coaches. At this time, other type RV's are accepted. When completed, assuming the economy allows, there will be a huge number of sites which will be for sale. Some sites are large enough for cottages to be built. No pool at this time, but is planned. Free WiFi with good signal. Beautiful resort, up high with a great view. Definitely a place to visit.
