A nice campground. Some rules are very strict: Don't put any part (a single tire) of your RV or other vehicle on the ground/grass outside of the designated parking area. Do not arrive before 1:30pm. NO registration or admittance before 1:30pm. It doesn't matter if your reserved site empty or not, you will not be allowed in. You will be told to park somewhere and come back at 1:30pm. If there are no sports events at the near by ball field/soccer field parking you can park there until 1:30pm. Ok. Got that gripe out! The park is nice. Some sites have great views of the lake. Easy access to the NW part of the Dallas area. Price is right for Seniors (don't remember age restrictions), 1/2 off of the $18 for 50 amp & $16 for 30amp. No sewer, but a dump is on site. Free WiFi which actually works.

Very nice park, clean and easy access. We stayed in the bay side camping area and loved it. The campsites are arranged in a wagon spoke but angled so each RV is positioned so the view at the rear of the campsite is past the back side of your neighbors RV. We are in a motorhome so we pulled in so the view out our window was looking out over the water and all the birds feeding. It was cold and rainy for the 4 days we were here so it was great being inside watching the birds from our windows.

The park has been restored. There are 13 nicely paved campsites, 10 of which are pull-thru with W&E, 50 & 30 amp. Very good tasting water. Dump station in the park. No showers. Vault toilet at one end of camping area. Staff is friendly and helpful. Very close to the beach and excellent beach access via boardwalk. No vehicles allowed on the beach area at the end of the boardwalk. There is about 2 miles of drive-able beach and primitive beach camping available for RV's under about 30' or tents. I don't understand the previous very negative reviews. It is no secret this SP is in the middle of nowhere. Also being 100 yards from the water, if the wind blows there is nothing to stop it. Your RV will rock or your tent will be blown around.

A very nice park. Nicely separated campsites, good privacy. The park was clean, staff and camp hosts friendly & helpful. Free WiFi. Hiking/walking trails. Splash pad in summer. Free laundry machines, two washers dryers in each bathhouse. Yes, the park is in the swamp. This is a state park, not an RV park in the city. The swamp makes it interesting and different. The park's website does not try to hide the fact it is in a swamp. We would return if in the area.

We didn't stay here, we drove through and stopped in at the office for a few minutes. We didn't see anything which would improve the 2012 reviews. There are ocean views (actually views of a bay), but very few of the sites have them. The best ocean views are from a nice grassy dry camping area. There seems to be lots of long term residents in the full hookup sites. Not really trashy, but not very neat either.

Date of Stay:

The camping here is on 2 separate gravel parking areas. One has very nice view of ocean & dock the other has easy access to beach. Other than the view of the ocean, neither parking are is very pretty. No facilities in either parking area. Restroom and showers are supposed to be at the dock, but we did not check. For $20 it is way overpriced. Self registration in upper parking area. We were going to stay 2-3 nights, but not for $20/night. We only stayed on night because of the view. Directions: From US-101 turn S on Harbor Drive. Upper parking area on left as you approach the ocean.

As stated in other reviews the good thing about this park is it is right on the ocean. The sites are very tight. The back row (back-ins) have no view of anything. We stayed in the partial hookup sites (water & elect). Note that no tents are allowed in the RV sites, even with an RV in the site. Tent sites are in a separate section with a 50-75 yard walk to restrooms. I'm not sure we would stay here again.

Date of Stay:

This is a nice comfortable and quiet campground. I could do without the very bright street lights shining in our window at night. As mentioned other reviews, nice level well separated sites. We would definitely stay here again. Good Verizon signal for our Internet modem.

Easy on/easy off from I-10. The RR is near by, but the trains don't blow their horns, so trains are not noticeable. All site are pull-throughs. Some of the sites farther away from the office are good for 40' with toad without unhooking. 30 amp power worked good in the 103* heat. No shade. This place is a much older gravel parking lot and the weeds are growing up in places. Good for overnight stay, but not for long term. For $18 we were satisfied with our stay.

Date of Stay:

We found the entrance to the park smooth and easy, no drop offs. Someone may have fixed the entrance. I give the park a 5 based on the easy on easy off from I-10 and that the electric power (30 amp) worked just fine in the June heat, 100* this afternoon. It is just a gravel parking lot, but for an overnight stay what more do you need? If the weather was cool we would probably have opted for a free stay at a local store or empty lot. But in the summer it would have cost me $12-$15 to run the generator for the 12-15 hours we stop for the night.

We stayed here three nights at the Passport America rate of $17.50 for the non-sewer rate. We enjoyed our stay. The Free Wi-Fi worked very well. There are campground hosts here now. Payment is self pay at entrance. There is a reservation board at entrance showing the reserved sites. No restrooms or showers. One row of parking sites are sewer, electric and water. The other row is without sewer. Normal rates are $35-non-sewer and $42 with sewer. If you have a very large--over 40'-- maneuvering and parking will take some care. There is a free dump at the city sewer facility about 2 miles N of the RV Park, 0.2 miles S of I-90. Would stay again.

I gave the park a 8 because of the nice primitive campsites with good views of the rocks and country side. No facilities here except for vault toilets. The park is kid friendly in so far as there is open areas to play. No playground or other facilities.

A nicely maintained park, friendly owners. Very little road noise. Railroad crossing about 1/2-3/4 mile away. If your windows are open it would be bothersome. We had the a/c on all night and didn't hear the train whistle. Our rate was Passport America, 50% off, Sun-Thur only. No extra charge for Wi-Fi or Cable. Did not use either, as Verizon has 3-4 bars, so our internet is very good. Cable TV is analog, but we got strong digital over-the-air signal from the Lubbock TV stations, so didn't use the cable. We would definitely stay here again. Very good value.

A nice city operated park. There are small 3 lakes in this park with lots of Canada geese around as well as other birds. There are no real designated camping sites. Each elect and water post has a number on it, but you park in any manner or direction you want. The elect and water posts are pretty close together, so if the park is busy, it will be very crowded. The campsites are on grass and gravel. The ground may be soft and perhaps muddy if wet. The above are the main reasons I gave it a 5 rather than an 8. 30 amp only and no dump station. Some sites are almost on the water, and have good view of a small lake. There is a free dump station in the city park in Fairbury.

Date of Stay:

Beautiful public RV Park, very nicely maintained grass and concrete parking pads. The dump station if easily accessed on the way out of the RV parking area. The only negative is that water is only available at the entrance to the RV area or at the dump station. Very good shade if you want and about a third of the sites have satellite view, if you need it. Verizon has 3-4 bars so good Internet access through Verizon.
