This is a family campground with many kid activities. My review and comments of Leisure Lake in August 2010 still applies. Our new Verizon hotspot worked well. Due to low AC power (99 to 105 volts) during the hot day we left the next day rather than spend the rest of the week with poor power.

Date of Stay:

We held a small (15 RVs) rally here. This is a Church of God campground that has recently opened for the public. It is also Passport America. It's 2 miles outside Saint Louis in the country. Half the park is in a shaded area with mature trees with water and 30a. The other half is in the open with water and 50a or 30a. They rent ($25/day) an air conditioned building where we conducted our rally activities. There are two large bathhouses/bathrooms. There is a large covered pavilion with an adjacent fire ring. The roads are gravel and the sites are grass. You can easily pull through open sites making then pull a through. The sites are level. There is some road noise from Bagley and M46. The Verizon cell phones and hotspots worked well as did the 50a and water. There was another RV rally here, they were in the 30a shaded area and we were in the 50a open area. LOTS of room in this park. The staff was VERY friendly and helpful. We are very pleased we found this gem of a campground.

This old KOA is under new ownership and has made many improvements. The office has been remodeled inside and out. All the other building exteriors are either new or have been resided and reroofed. The grounds are very well landscaped and maintained. There has been a lot of work put into this campground. We had a long pull through site with 30a FHU. the utilities worked OK. We used the power pedestal on the curb side of the RV as it was much closer that the one for the pull through we were in. There are lots of Maple trees so our rooftop dish would not get a signal. The rooftop antenna picked up several local TV channels. We were close to the office and used their WiFi which was very reliable, I did not try our Verizon hotspot. There are 3 washers and 4 dryers, each $2. Laundry room was very clean. The campground was not busy, 3 or 4 trailers with no one there the 2 nights we spent there. Only 4 RV's had activity. Roads and sites are gravel. The price included $2 charge for using a credit card, no checks accepted. You can hear road traffic from I-70 otherwise peaceful campground. Owner was very friendly and helpful.

Nice moderate sized city campground. 30amp and water with a dump station. The power was fine but we did not connect to the water for this short overnight stay. We were given a "pull through" site which was a nice wide gravel spot beside the road. It was plenty wide so our slide was not near the road. It was a Saturday night and the park was pretty full, we were concerned that there might be kids, noise and campfire smoke but none of these happened. It was a very pleasant evening. The rooftop dish worked well, no trees and the Verizon cell and hotspot also worked well. We were too far from the office to get a WiFi signal. The sites are close and many are short.

Our backin site was up to the water and was very large and well landscaped with lots of grass and very well maintained. The picnic table was covered. The sun set over the water. Several fishing boats passed by. The trees shaded the back of the RV and the front was open so the rooftop dish worked well. Power and water worked well, we didn't use the dump station. The site was paved and level as was the road. Verizon cell and hotspot worked well. Quiet and peaceful, I wish we had stayed longer.

Price is ROD membership & includes $5 fee for WiFi up to a week. Staff is very friendly and helpful. We had cement pad pull through with no trees to interfere with rooftop dish. Verizon hotspot worked most of the time so we purchased campground WiFi which was more reliable. All utilities worked well. Quiet and peaceful there.

Very nice COE park. At the site we selected, 15, the water faucet did not work. Assigned another site but we didn't like the trees so the staff let us take another site of our choice. Park was almost empty. The water and 50A worked fine. Verizon cell and hotspot worked well. No trees so the rooftop dish worked well. Cement picnic table & bench under covered patio. Large sites and good grass. Paved roads and solid gravel sites. Cement curbs alongside the site's sides so be careful backing in. Peaceful and quite, could hear distant trains at night. Beautiful lake.

Date of Stay:

Spent 2 nights here. 50a and water worked well, water pressure was 90 pounds. Dump station on slight slant. Paved roads and back-in site. LOTS of room between sites as expected at COE parks. Verizon cell and hotspot worked well. Site had a good downward slope toward lake when entering but leveled out pretty good once in the site. No trees nearby so rooftop dish worked well. Covered picnic table, fire pit nearby. Peaceful & quiet.

The $16.50 a night is based on a nice rally discount and a months stay, includes electricity. All utilities worked very well. Nice laundry facility, $1.50 to wash or dry. WiFi worked 90% of the time at our site, Verizon cell and hotspot worked well as no tree blocked our rooftop dish at our site, as requested. Cement roads and site which backed up to pecan orchard. Ingram and Kerrville 6 and 8 miles away so are convenient. Park is pretty quiet and dark at night. Very nice clubhouse and Western Town facilities for gatherings.

Beautiful COE park, especially when getting 50% off with National Parks Senior Pass. Paved roads and concrete pads. The blind back-in sites back up to the Canyon Lake 150' away so you could hear some boat traffic. VERY large sites with covered picnic tables. We chose an open site (99) allowing the rooftop dish easy access, the 50a utilities worked well (no sewer so used the dump station), Verizon hotspot worked well, rooftop TV antenna worked well also. We'll remember this CG the next time in this area.

Spent one night here, it's quite close to I-10 so lots of expressway noise. The concrete pull through site was narrow and short so the truck had to be parked across the RV front. 50a and utilities all worked fine. There was grass between the sites and concrete roads narrow. No trees so rooftop dish worked well as did Verizon hotspot. No discounts, good for a nights stop when traveling.

Date of Stay:

We spent 3 nights here exploring the area. The pull through length was fine for a 37' fifthwheel and ext cab long box dually. The site was narrow with barely sufficient room for our slide outs and neighbors. Rooftop dish worked fine as no trees at our site, rooftop TV antenna also picked up several local stations. We used our Verizon hotspot with no difficulties. The fellow that checked us in was very friendly and had good local info. He led us to our site to make sure all was well. We did have a problem with 50a as it one leg dropped to 18 volts and shut us down twice the first day. After changing to 30a it was OK for 2 days. The view out the back window was very nice and open. We'd stay here again as it was only about 6 miles off I-10 so we didn't have to tow further considering the poor roads and possible low live oak branches.

Nice overnight stop 1 mile off I-2. Cement wide roads and sites. Grass between sites. Rate was Passport America back-in site. 50A power was good, didn't use water or sewer. Pool was very nice. Didn't use CG WiFi, used Verizon cell & hotspot which worked well. Site backed up to trees but rooftop dish worked OK. Road behind our site was busy. Staff friendly.

Date of Stay:

We were in a pull through (92) site that was plenty long and wide & level. Rooftop dish, Verizon cell & hotspot worked well as did the utilities. Wife used the pool several times. Laundry was $1 to wash or dry. Road was gravel as was the site with grass between sites. Non Escapees can stay in Escapee parks, too. Staff was friendly.

Date of Stay:

Located 5 miles off I-20 so it's very quite, peaceful, and dark at night. Location not marked very well. Only 1 other RV here. 50 amp power and water worked well, didn't see or look for a dump station but there could be one here. Rooftop dish and Verizon cell and hotspot worked. CG is large paved circle with several gravel "roads" zig zagging throughout. Sites not really marked but very roomy so finding a site was easy with only 2 RVs here. Pay the $10 fee at golf course office 3 miles away. Great deal for $10.
