Nice little campground and cabins. It's an older place, but it is very well maintained. The staff was very friendly and informative. There are just ten RV sites. There were only eight working sites, all back-in, but they said there were in the process of converting the first two to pull-through with 50 amp service. The Cimmeron River is right behind the campsite. Nice to hear the rushing water but it would have been better if we could have faced the river. There's a nice pond and picnic area across the river via a bridge. We were here in May, so maybe the "heavy traffic" of US50 was exceptionally light, but thought it was very quite - just the sound of the rushing water. The restaurant has a limited menu, but the homemade pies are great.

This is a nice campground with easy access to the Mission Reach part of the San Antonio River Walk. It is well maintained but like many parks these days has a lot of long-term guests. We really liked the place, but what knocked the rating down a few pegs was the flagrant disregard of quiet hours. There was a very large party held right outside our bedroom window that went well into the night. When I went to ask them to quiet down a bit, I recognized many of the staff there! I got very irate before they finally toned it down a bit (on a scale of 1-10, from 8 to 6). Spoiled an otherwise delightful stay.

Nice campground near "Black Jack Crossing" (as in Black Jack Pershing). Had a couple of issues though. There had been heavy rain prior to our arrival and our site was very muddy. The clubhouse was partly closed due to bees. Can't blame the bees but the mud issue needs to be addressed. They warned us that the wind can come up quickly so don't leave the canopies out. One neighbor didn't heed that advice and had his torn from his trailer. At least the staff helped him remove it so he could get it fixed. Overall the campground is a bit "touristy". In the right circumstances it could be rated higher.

Keeping in mind this is "Sounds of the Sea", not "Sights of the Sea', we were not disappointed. We had a premium site with a deck and a swing chair (53d if you want to request it). The sounds of the surf and the sea lions were great! There is a little bit of view through the trees, and we could see the sea lions on a big rock below. The grounds were well kept and the lady who checked us in was very friendly. It's a short walk to Patrick's Point State Park, which is a big bonus.

First impression was this campground needed some work. The site was a little difficult to get into - we had a back-in spot but prefer a pull-through. The pull-throughs were being updated for a reason that become obvious - an Airstream convention was held over the weekend. The lake was awesome. Moved the motorhome a couple of feet after a couple of days just to get a better view! The lake was great for swimming. Staff was very friendly. The dog run was taken down. Don't know if they are rebuilding, but there is plenty of places to take pets. There was some other construction going on as well. Lake Goodwin is beautiful - we'll be back!

Great park, very clean. We opted for the Soup and Potato dinner in the barn. Very good food and really fun meeting many of the other campers. The sites are paved and level. Maybe the only "complaint" (not enough to impact the review) was there was no designated dog run. There are bags and trash containers in a few places. Some campers put out "no dogs" signs. There were plenty of other places to go, so it wasn't inconvenient. Just never experienced that in a campground before.

Very nice park. Maybe our expectations were set low by some of the other reviewer's concerns about the neighborhood, but I really didn't mind being surrounded by million-dollar yachts! The rate varies by season and by day, and is a little high. There is a shuttle service to take you to the French Quarter for $4/person round trip. Had a really funny "temp" driver whose real job was NOPD undercover cop at night in the French Quarter. Great stories! Perhaps even scary stories. There is an outdoor (covered) bar/restaurant that serves great pizza. If we are ever back this way, we'll stay here again - regardless of the price.

Nice park. The staff already had left for the holidays, so everyone was pretty much on their own. The only complaint is the sites are not level. We needed to block up the front wheels and the back was squatted as far as it would go. The couple next to us ended up backing their rear wheels off of the pad and into the divot where the gravel meets the concrete. It's not often it is a good thing that there was a big pothole leading up to the pad! They are building several more sites, all obviously just as un-level as the one we were in. Other than that, it was very nice.

"Hole in the wall" was the first impression. Wrong. The rest rooms were very clean and the staff was very friendly. The best part was the "beach" on the river. Our dog had a great time (as did we) with the river access. It was quiet and close as could be to Sequoia NP.

Wow! Nice setting! Creek view or river view you can't go wrong! Staff was very friendly. Would get a better rating but the showers and restrooms were a bit run down.

Stayed on the "Camp Friday and get Saturday free" weekend. It was crowded. OK. Should have expected that. What I didn't expect was the close campsites and really poor internet reception. I complained that the internet was slow to nothing, and the response was "let me reset it". That happened twice. Since everyone else in the campground was kicked off the internet, that seemed extreme. While internet access was a prime consideration for staying at the park and was disappointing, the location by Yosemite was great and the second night (the free night) was actually quite pleasant.
