Located about 1/2 mile north of Interstate 20, east of Longview, TX and perhaps 30 miles from the Louisiana state line, this small park is clean and well maintained. Our 42' MH with a 22' trailer in tow had no problem getting in or out of the park. The pull-through sites are plenty long enough for a big rig and all appear to be level gravel with picnic tables and green space for each site. The clean and air conditioned laundry facility has many machines which are well maintained, cleaned daily and it and the office are open from 7am to 7pm. There is a nicely stocked convenience store next to the park. A grocery store is located 2 miles away. There are several long term residents but nothing trashy looking. There is a large grassy pet area, Wi-Fi (works great) and limited cable TV are free. A recreation hall is available. I see others have remarked about barking dogs and road noise, but we did not have that experience. I did not see a playground, there is no pool. Propane is available on the premises. No camp fires are allowed. Quiet time is 9pm to 6am, check-out is at noon. The rate posted was for a 50 amp pull-through. All sites have full hook-ups. The people in the office could not have been nicer. We will definitely return when in the area.

Advertised as big rig friendly with pull through sites, we found neither to be true. The concrete slabs are mostly unlevel and broken, the roads are deeply rutted with sharp turns and although I stumbled around on foot to locate a level site that we could pull in to, none were usable. Weeds everywhere and at least one site was blocked by a broken picnic table. We reversed down the street and left. There may be a back in-site suitable for a small TT at the entrance but otherwise the park is in need of a major overhaul and I wouldn't risk pulling in or hooking up. Woodall's gave it a 3 W rating in 2006. Maybe it was nice then.

Immaculate little oasis. All sites are level gravel, many pull-throughs and big rig friendly. The old cotton gin building is filled with antiques and the pool was a refreshing delight to cool off from the 106 degree daytime temps. There are no shade sites, but there are hardly any trees in this part of Texas anyway. The owner is very nice and we were happy to find this spot (advertised in Woodall's Directory). Quiet and easy access from Hwy. 287. Easy after hours check-in, continental breakfast for $1 per person, honor system 24 hour laundry: $1.50 per wash or dry. The $32 rate is for a 50 amp pull-through. 30 amp pull-through is $30, head-ins are $28 and $31, back-ins are $27 and $30. Tent sites are $18. Rates are based on 2 persons, additional persons over 10 years of age: $4 each per day. There are no CGs on 287 between Amarillo and Quanah and the one in Quanah does not advertise sewer connections, so don't pass this one up if you need full hook-ups.

Just a few miles south of SD state line on Hwy. 83 in rolling green hills and pastures. There are only 22 RV sites but all are long pull-throughs with full hookups, 50 amp service and free Wi-Fi. Very easy in and out, big rig friendly, picnic tables at each site, sand box filled with toys for kids, pavilion, fresh water pond (no swimming), lots of birds, plenty of green space for kids to play and to walk pets, huge skies (no satellite interference) and quiet. Roads and sites are firm, level gravel and are situated so that the driver sides of the RVs share island utility areas. The restrooms are immaculate. The owners are friendly and the property is cared for with pride. We found this one in Woodall's Directory, were pleasantly surprised and will return when in the area. It is a little gem. There are also some tenting sites.

Just a few KM from Edmonton. Full hook-ups at each level, gravel site; 15/30/50 amps; wide streets; Wi-Fi; land lines; coin showers and laundry; restrooms; fire pits and picnic tables at each site; horseback riding; dog run; walking trails. Nice owners. Quiet. Train runs past at about midnight, but didn't bother us at all. Some winterized sites for seasonal residents. Lovely, rural surroundings. Great spot from which to visit,or commute to, Edmonton. We had a 50 amp site. All utilities are excellent and the Wi-Fi is strong.

What a great place to overnight. Every site has full hook-ups, a level gravel pad and a real decent amount of well maintained grassy space between each site. The interior roads are well maintained gravel and the young trees are growing nicely. The road leading to the entrance is a bit bumpy, so slow way down. There are no assigned sites; you select an empty site after check-in. Once you enter, beware of the massive speed bumps put there to remind everyone to slow down. I saw a children play set on the lawn near the office. Absolutely will overnight here again.

This little spot is about 1 mile west of Marshall city limits off of I-20. Most of the sites are permanent residents. It is run down looking but is great for an overnight stay. It has a payment drop box. The electric hook-ups are great and is one of the few campsites where 50 amp means 50 amp. The second interior road is in terrible shape so enter on the one on the right. We were happy to find it late on one scorching hot night. I didn't count the sites or have a brochure. It is a guess.

We chose this CG because it had an available spot, we were tired and the first CG we found was 100% occupied. It was clean, well maintained, the hook-ups were good and overall it was perfect for our overnight stay. A cheerful spot with a very nice staff. There is no reason not to use this CG when in the area.

There is no reason to choose this park over any other in the area. We were given a site that backed up to a very busy street and paralleled the tire store - perhaps the worst site in the park, and that is the reason I do not rate it higher. It is a short walk to downtown Drumheller over the bridge and a 3 mile taxi ride to the Royal Tyrell Museum - ($20 for the taxi!) The hook-ups were good and the badlands scenery was lovely except for the tire store. The staff was friendly. There is an adorable play area for the kids, mini-golf and the park is decorated with some old farm/mining equipment which is at least something to look at while walking to the dumpsters. All the CG's in the area are roughly the same and equally convenient to attractions so I can't recommend this one over others. It is just a good spot to park while visiting the area.

This place has level gravel sites, good hook-ups, an adjacent golf course, a no-swimming pond and a play area for little ones. The entrance is tree lined. There are some newly planted trees scattered about. The campground is clean and the sites are spaced well enough apart that one isn't cramped. There is a fee for the shower - I guess this is a new trend - paying extra to take a shower. Golf seems to be the draw. All in all, a nice spot for a night or 2 when near Edmonton and by far the better of the 2 campgrounds we have visited while there. I would pick this one over the other and recommend the same.

Immaculate and beautifully landscaped, it is a pleasure to stroll through the grounds. Gorgeous view of the mountains. The owners have paid a lot of attention to detail and it shows. I will stop here again and would recommend it to anyone.

If you enjoy being jammed together like canned sardines, on unlevel gravel sites, in a dust bowl with constant traffic where the only "views" are of your neighbors slide-outs and the ambience is that of a used RV lot, then this is the spot for you. This was the worst place we have been thus far. There are more cars and trucks than RV's and this is not a camping spot, but rather a parking lot atmosphere for seasonal dwellers. There is absolutely nothing enjoyable to do or see or experience here. If you want to take a shower, bring some loonies. You have to pay extra to shower. No BBQ grills. Site had no picnic table, which was fine since dining in dusty traffic wasn't on my agenda anyway. Pass this one by. It is horrible.

Date of Stay:

Nothing for older kids over to do, except the nearby water park which was packed with locals. Will not return as kids were bored and cranky and is the reason for the low rating.

Lovely spot. Very efficient and friendly staff. Woodsy, immaculate, level, gravel sites with full service pull-thrus, full hook-ups, picnic table, garbage container and fire pits. Lots of activities for kids, including an antique fire truck ride, playground, bike rentals, big pool, catch and release pond, basketball court, rec. room. Clean bathhouses and laundry facilities. Recycle bins. Nicely stocked convenience store. Firewood $6 a bundle. 15 minutes to express train to NYC. 1 hr ride, $32 round trip. Could not get satellite TV due to trees.

We had 50 amp service, so there was an addtional charge, I do not know what the rate for 30 amp or less will be. We drove in late at night, after the office was closed. There was a sign posted on the door which let us know which sites were still available. Luckily, the only pull-thru left was #30, right next to the office and laundry! The laundry room, rec.room, bath house are all immaculate. Our site had a great grass area in front. Some sites are paved, ours was gravel. There are some sites on the perimeter and they look small, however the big rigs are parked in the center for the most part. Full hook-ups including 50 amp! The nicest staff anywhere and a great shop for last minute gifts. I could not find any garbage cans, except one outside the laundry room door. Ask on check in to see what you are supposed to do with your trash. I would stay over again when passing through, but would not stay for more than 2 days.
