Great campground! This was our first stay here. We stayed here as this is where our event (2016 Texas Sweetheart Rally) was being held. We stayed in site 34 which is a buddy site and it was great! All the sites were 25 to 30 feet in width. All sites were nice and deep (60 to 75 feet or so). We used their Mocking Bird Hall for our event. The room worked well for us, albeit a but loud (need more sound baffling). We used the kitchen in the hall and it was great and real handy for us. The restrooms between halls was modern and very clean. I never went into it, but I was told the bath house was very nice. I got to go into a cabin/cottage as a friend was checking one out for a possible stay. The units were very spacious, well stocked with everything you'd need except food and clothing. They were very clean as well. I bit $$ at $160 to $180 per night or so, but divided by the number of people they can sleep - not bad I guess. The office has a very large and very well stocked camp store and the staff was very friendly and very accommodating to our group. While this CG is 10 miles east of Fredericksburg, it was no big deal at all to go into town. We'd stay here again!

Decent RV Park. This was our first stay here. Normally, we stay across town when passing through. We stayed here at the suggestion of a friend. This is a former KOA. The office was clean and the staff was pleasant. One odd thing was that they could not find my reservation in their system. Then they found it, but found the site number they gave me two days prior was already occupied. No problem with me - give me another site. They assigned me a new site and I led myself to it. Small problem - my site was occupied (3:30 pm). I called the office to advise them and told them the site next to mine was open - they said it was okay to setup there (site 56 - Pull-through - about 70'). This park has a restaurant that comes highly recommended. I did pop in to check it out. It was nice and clean. I spoke to the cook and he gave me some menu suggestions. The food sounded great but we decided to make our own dinner tonight. I'd stay here again for an overnight or up to a week. Longer than that - too dusty with all gravel roads.

We stay here as a passing-through point as we leave FL and trek west. The location is great. Not far from I-10 and just off TN-90. Easy to get into Tallahassee. We stay in the sites numbered in the 40s. Stayed in site 41 this time. Sites are fine gravel, LONG, about 20 feet wide. They have a nice (open) dog park here too. If you NEED satellite from your roof, ask for a site up front at the entrance. We've stayed further into the campground in sites 41 through 44 and have gotten rooftop satellite to work looking through the trees - but it's not guaranteed. We'd stay here again.

Nice park. Convenient location. Price paid ($35) includes tax and was for a long pull-through, 50 amp full hook-up site (#28). I was looking for an overnight location to stay near St. Louis. We were traveling east and I preferred to stay east of St. Louis. Found this place on this review site. Reviews were mixed but when I arrived, I knew the lower reviews must have been for the previous campground owner. The new owner has spent a lot of money and time here. The office is really nice inside. The sites have had their power, water and cable upgraded. The WiFi system worked great. I'm using it to type this review. There are truck stops, Walmart and other shopping within a mile of here. I'd stay here again!

First time staying here. We needed an overnight site west of Washington, DC on our way to Ocean City, MD. This place is really hidden well. Narrow but paved interior roads. We stayed in site S17 as we wanted 50 amp full hookups, a long pull-through, and a clear shot to the sky for rooftop satellite. The site delivers as would any on site S17 through S21. The site itself is huge but not level at all. Slopes way down to the front. We have automatic levelers on the coach, so I disconnected from the truck and them took care of things. We'd stay here again if we needed a CG in the area.

First time staying here. Careful when pulling in off the highway as the CG has a stone sign in the center of their driveway. CG office is in the gift shop. Female staffer was friendly. They take credit cards. We had pull-through site 54. Nice long site but low in the rear. Not a problem if you are unhooking but we stayed hooked up. 50 amp power, water, and sewer were all fine. Site 54 also worked for my rooftop satellite dish so long as I was parked at the rear of the site. Site 53 would also work for rooftop satellite (again, stay to the rear of site). I'd stay here again for an overnight or if I was visiting the nearby Dixie Caverns.

Decent place to stay, no amenities, far from the expressway, not cheap. On our way to the Boston area from the west, we needed an overnight spot with full-hookups and in the area, there was not much other choice. I called ahead and spoke to the manager. Very nice fellow. He told me he could accommodate me. He warned me to use the directions from their website. We did and it took us right there without worrying about low clearances. At the office, using the outdoor wall phone, we called the number indicated and the manager was there quickly. He took our $45 payment (accepts credit cards now) and escorted us to our site. It was a 50 foot deep back in. No problem. Note that the sewer was at the back of the site. I was able to reach with my standard (long) sewer hose. We didn't use the cable but saw the hookup. 50 amp power was fine. Water pressure was low (about 30 PSI). We felt safe. I'd stay here again if I needed to stop in the area for an overnight.

Our first time here. Very convenient to I-30. Price was with KOA card and was a pull-through (concrete), 50 amp full hookup site with a patio set. We could hear I-30 road noise but it was not very loud. No problem. Small campground. We'd stay here again.

This was our first time staying here. Rate was with a Good Sam discount. We were on a long, level, gravel, pull-through site with 50 amp power, water, and sewer. We were in the second row from the river. The engine noise from the tugs pushing the barges was noticeable. We ran our bedroom AC fan at night - most will not be bothered by the noise. A bit off I-40 but if you're looking for a place to stay west of Memphis - this one works well. We'd stay here again.

Was looking for a place for a quick overnight and found this place. Decent pull-through, 50 amp full-hookup sites. My site angled down towards the front a bit. Owner was very friendly and appreciative of the business.

I rated this campground a 7. It's pretty old, yet being upgraded by the new owners. As others have mentioned, the road coming into the campground is narrow and not in good shape. Hope they fix this. My site just fit my 5th wheel while staying connected to the truck. The site was a bit narrow but I didn't need to use the patio so it was fine for my overnight. I would stay here again as it's only a couple miles off the expressway.

I arrived here around 4:30. Staff had gone home, though they told me by phone they'd be here until 6. Put cash into provided blank envelope and put through mail slot in door. The campground has nice long gravel pull-throughs. It is close to I-55 and a Loves truckstop. Worked well for my overnight needs.

Date of Stay:

Road from highway was gravel with potholes. Roads in the campground are gravel and rather muddy this time of year. There were several ratty looking, permanent resident trailers in the campground. Power pedestal is at the front of most sites. Staff was friendly and escorted me to my site. It's close to I-57. I required only an overnight stay so while this park was not so nice, it was adequate for my purposes.

We camped in the Northwest section of the Fairgrounds for the last 2 years during our RV rally. The Fairgrounds are not publicly owned. This really makes a difference here - in a nice way. Because they are self-funded, the facilities are well kept. The staff is friendly and helpful. One note about most of the RV sites here, the hookups are usually at the rear of the site - all the hookups. This means that you may need a longer water and sewer hose. Maybe even a longer power cord. The reason for the hookups being in back is that the facility is multi-purpose in its use. As such, they don't want protrusions from the ground in the middle of the sites. Too hard to maneuver vehicles, shelters etc. for other activities that happen there. While they can hold hundred of RVs, try to reserve a site in the NW section. Not much for trees here. If you like trees on your site, select sites 401-410 in the NW section. The rear (west facing) of these sites have tall trees. WiFi while available, is not free.
