We stayed here for 2 nights to visit the area as there isn't much to choose from. The park is easy to get to & from I-49 but it is several miles from the Interstate in town. The park is very small. It is behind a business. The park's office is located at the other park (Nakatosh Campground #1) so you have to go there during the business hours if you want to pay by credit card. The interior road is gravel. The road is in poor condition and doesn't show signs of being cared for. The sites are a mixture of pull throughs & back ins. The pull through sites were not long enough for our 40' MH with the toad. All of the sites have some type of slope. They are in poor condition showing signs of ruts and VERY questionable utility connections. The hook ups appear to have been added on over time with fuses rather than breakers, exposed wires and broken fixtures. The electrical connections were different at each site so we had to hunt for an open site with a 50 AMP connection plug. There were no other amenities at the sites. Our electrical system started malfunctioning. The refrigerator was the first appliance to show a problem followed by the inverter. It seemed to occur when more guests hooked up to the park's electrical system. As soon as we arrived at a newer park with better utility connections, the problem was corrected. It seemed that about half of the sites where occupied by long term residents. There was only a line of trees along the Western side of the park to interfere with satellite reception. Surprisingly the WiFi connection was good but it required a password. There wasn't a fenced pet area. There wasn't sufficient space to walk dogs along the park's roads but there was a grassy area between the park and the adjacent restaurant's parking lot. There were no bag dispensers or receptacles around the park to pick up waste. There was a nearby dumpster to throw away your garbage. The restroom/showers or laundry room were located in the back of the building that housed another business. They required an access code to enter. For being in a hazardous/severe weather area, there was no underground storm shelter and none of the buildings were designated as shelters. Would never stay here again!

We stayed here for 14 nights while waiting on our destination to open up. The park is right along I-10. But the access road along the Interstate is a 1-way so there is a lot of doubling back. The park is a former KOA campground. It is showing its' age. It was built on flat ground. The roads were not sufficiently wide enough and turn radii were difficult to manage for longer RV's (motor homes with toads attached and longer towables). Some of these narrow roads were designated as two-way. The sites are a mixture of pull throughs & back ins. The pull through sites were not long enough for our 40' MH with the toad attached even though the park advertises that you don't need to unhook in the sites. Other motor homes experienced the same problem. Some didn't disconnect so their tows blocked the road. And there wasn't much space in the sites to park extra vehicles at the sites. But that didn't stop people from parking extra vehicles (included ATV/golf carts) along the roads making passage even more difficult. The sites were narrow and generally level but the ground has settled so there are a lot of low spots were the water pools during rain storms - deep enough to cover a shoe. The connections are towards the back of the sites so the sites are better suited for towables. There was constant road noise near the sites at the front of the park and an extensive tree canopy on the sites in rows "A" through "F" so satellite reception is very limited especially with roof mounted dishes. Some sites in this area had portable dishes to get out from under the tree canopy or dishes installed on a fixed post. The sites towards the back of the park offered a better view of the southern sky. Were able to connect to the WiFi hotspots but couldn't reach the internet. The park staff was aware of the problem but couldn't get a repair person out for the entire time we were there. The problem persisted for our entire stay as we were never able to connect to the internet. But our Verizon hotspot worked somewhat slow. There was no fenced pet area. There was sufficient area to walk dogs along the park's roads as long as you didn't run into a dog at large. There were no bag dispensers to pick up waste but there were receptacles around the park to dispose of waste. Ran into dogs at large towards the back of the park and dog waste left on the ground.

We stayed here for 5 nights while traveling through. The park is easy to get to & from I-10. But the road between the Interstate and Barn Rd is very rough. And some of the bridge transitions on the Interstate near the exit are not smooth. All of the interior roads and site parking pads are concrete. The roads are sufficiently wide enough and turn radii were manageable for longer motor homes with toads attached. The sites are all pull throughs. They are better suited for towables as the utility connections were generally located towards the rear of the sites. The sites were long enough for our 40' MH with the toad attached but connecting to the utilities required a long reach if you don't disconnect. The concrete pads were generally level. The sites were large enough to establish some privacy between the sites but some folks spread out in the adjacent site's grassy area. They have full hook ups - water, electricity (20/30/50 AMP), & a sewer connection. There seemed to be a lot of long term residents. Being the off season, the pool was still open but the temperature didn't allow for its use. There were only a few trees scattered around the park so they didn't create much of a problem. Nothing really to interfere with satellite reception. Park's WiFi was adequate. Our Verizon hotspot worked well. There was a fenced pet area off in a corner of the park. It was adequate for our small dog. There was sufficient area to walk dogs along the park's roads. Dumpsters were available for garbage. Would stay here again if the need arose.

Pulled in here early on a Friday afternoon to spend a couple of days as there isn't much to choose from in the area. The park is easy to get to & from I-49. After climbing up the steep but short hill off the main road, discovered the entire campground was full. The park is behind a truck stop. It is very small and was built on a slight slope so leveling might be an issue depending on your RV's ability to level. The interior road is gravel. The sites are a mixture of pull throughs & back ins. The pull throughs are in the middle with the back-ins along the outer edge. There appeared to be some long term residents. There is a tree line along the outer edge of the park so satellite reception might be impacted. The sites in the center appeared to have a better line of sight to the sky for satellite reception. Office is only open from about 3:30 to 5 so any contact with staff outside of those hours is by phone. Make reservations if you want to stay here. Or you can contact the Chamber of Commerce for a listing of other RV parks in the area.

They have full hook ups - water, electricity (20/30/50 AMP), & a sewer connection. There was an outside table on a small concrete pad. There were only a few palm trees in scattered around the park so they didn't create much of a problem. There didn't seem to be a lot of long term residents. Most of them were along the Northern outer edge in "Executive" sites. Being the off season, many of the park's facilities were closed. There were not many guests in the park. Nothing really to interfere with satellite reception. Were able to connect to the WiFi but couldn't reach the internet. The problem persisted for our entire stay as we were never able to connect to the internet. But our Verizon hotspot worked well. There was no fenced pet area. There was sufficient area to walk dogs along the park's roads. There were bag dispensers and receptacles around the park to pick up waste. They offer site garbage pick up each morning. Didn't see any dumpsters to throw away your own garbage. Probably would stay here again in the off season.

We stayed here for 4 nights to visit New Orleans as there isn't much to choose from in the area. The park is easy to get to & from I-10. This park is somewhat different than other parks due to the combination of mobile home and RV sites. Plus the office has limited hours on the weekends (open Saturday mornings and closed all day Sunday) so if you plan on arriving when the office is closed, reservations would be good idea if you want the WiFi and restroom access codes. The interior roads are a mixture of paved & gravel. The roads are narrow so vehicles parked along the road created a problem. The combination of the narrow roads, turn radii and vehicles parked along the roads made the turns tight for longer motor homes. The "Premium" sites have narrow concrete parking pads. There is a mixture of pull throughs & back ins. The pull through sites were not long enough for our 40' MH with the toad attached. The concrete pads were generally level. Not much privacy between the sites. They have full hook ups - water, electricity (20/30/50 AMP), & a sewer connection that were generally midway along the side of the site. There was an outside table on either a small concrete pad or grass. There were only a few trees in this section so they didn't create much of a problem. But one of them showed signs of being hit by a passing vehicle. Some of the trees in the park could interfere with satellite reception. WiFi reception was surprising fast for TengoInternet. But to use the connection, you have to either have or establish an account with TengoInternet. There was no fenced pet area. There was sufficient area to walk dogs along the park's roads but some of the long term residents allowed their dogs to run at large and had no voice command control over the dogs. There were no bag dispensers around the park to pick up waste. There were receptacles in the middle of the park to dispose of waste.

We stayed here for a couple of nights to see the area. The park is easy to get to & from I-10. It is only a short distance from the interchange but very quiet. The park is small. It is built on fairly level ground around a body of water. The interior roads are paved. Their width isn't a problem due to the design and visibility. The sites are generally level and flat. There is a mixture of back in, pull in and pull throughs. The parking pads on the sites is gravel ringed with concrete. There wasn't much space for second vehicle. There wasn't much privacy between the sites due to the spacing between the sites. They have full hook ups - water, electricity (50/30/20 AMP), & sewer connections which are generally located about midway of the parking pad. There was an outside table on a concrete patio. Most all of the sites offered a view of the southern sky to get satellite reception. WiFi reception was very slow and difficult to stay connected - couldn't get connected and kept getting dropped if able to get connected. Only had two bars (good to poor strength) for connection even through there were several connection points. The park was only about half full so when it fills up, WiFi connection could become a big issue. Our Verizon hotspot didn't work well either. Must have been in a black hole. Didn't get a discount for Good Sam even though they recorded our membership number. We paid the posted rate. There were two designated pet areas around the park but they were very small. There wasn't sufficient area to walk dogs along the park's road system. There were no bag dispensers around the park to pick up waste but collection containers were located in each area of the park. Probably would return to this park if in the area only because we didn't look at other parks in the area.

We stayed here for a 6 nights. The RV parking was designed to support The Grand Oaks equine events so it was a little more expensive. The park is not easy to get to & from. The last two miles (Griffin Ave.) is a narrow two lane rural residential road that is barely wide enough for a motorhome. However, there were 45' motorhomes in the park. The interior roads are paved. The paved roads are single lane but have two way traffic. The corners were easily to negotiate. The park is built in an open meadow on gently sloping ground. But the parking area on the sites is generally level and flat. There is a mixture of pull-throughs and back-ins. The pull-throughs are paved with concrete parking pads. The back-ins are either concrete or grass parking pads. The sites had sufficient space for second vehicle. Privacy between the sites is created by space between the sites. They have full hook ups - water, electricity (50/30/20 amp), and sewer connections that are generally located towards the back of the parking pad. There was an outside table on a concrete patio. Although there were a line of trees on the southern edge of the park, sites offered a view of the southern sky to get satellite reception. Wi-Fi reception was surprising strong but there were only a few sites occupied so that might have had something to do with the strength & speed of the service. There were not a lot of guests so there facility was quiet peaceful. There was no designated pet areas around the park. But there was sufficient area to walk dogs along the park's road system. There were no bag dispensers around the park to pick up waste and collection containers were few and far between. For being in a hazardous/severe weather area, there was no underground storm shelter. None of the structures in the park were identified as a severe weather shelter. Probably would return to this park if in the area.

We stayed here for a couple of nights to see the sights in the area. This place is enormous! It is primarily for long term or permanent residents. Not that friendly to short stay travelers as the amenities are not within walking distance of most of the sites. There are golf carts all over so the residents can get around the park to the amenities. The park is easy to get to & from Interstate 95 via SR-50 (Cheney HWY). The park is built on flat ground. There are several water features around. Some of them are homes to alligators. The interior roads are paved. The roads are sufficiently wide for two coaches to pass. The corners were easily to negotiate. The sites are back ins/pull ins only. The sites had sufficient space for second vehicle. The sites were generally level. Privacy between the sites is created by space between the sites. They have full hook ups - water, electricity (50 AMP), & sewer connections. There was an outside table. Although there were trees around the park, sites offered a view of the southern sky to get satellite reception. The cable connection required special equipment which was provided by the cable provider for residents. Don't know if the equipment would be provided for short stay residents. No WiFi reception in the areas of the sites. There seem to be a lot of long term residents. There were several designated pet areas around the park. There was a fenced pet area as well but it was on the other side of the park from where we were so we didn't use it as it wasn't within walking distance. There was sufficient area to walk dogs along the park's road system. There were bag dispensers around the park to pick up waste. For being in a hazardous/severe weather area, there was no underground storm shelter. None of the structures in the park were identified as a severe weather shelter. Probably would return to this park if in the area.

We stayed here for a couple of nights to see the sights in the area. The park is easy to get to & from Interstate 295. The "E" section (the area with more pull-through sites that have satellite reception) is along I-295 so there was traffic noise. They offered a discount for police, fire, and veterans that was a better rate than the Good Sam rate. The park is built on flat ground around a 17 acre lake. The interior roads are a mixture of paved & gravel. Some of them are pretty narrow with tight corners. The speed bumps created problems due to their height. The sites are a mixture of back-ins or pull-throughs and paved or gravel. The pull through sites in "E" Section were long enough for larger coaches with their toads attached. The pull-through sites in other areas were shorter. The sites were generally level. Privacy between the sites is created by space between the sites. They have full hookups - water, electricity (50 amp), and sewer connections. There was an outside table. Part of the park is covered with trees and another portion is open to the sky. The trees encroach on some of the sites and a portion of the road. Opening slides was easy in the site without tree encroachment. Some sites offer a view of the southern sky to get satellite reception. The cable line up consisted of about 75 to 80 channels. Wi-Fi reception was unacceptable in the "E" section. There seem to be a lot of long term residents (estimated 60 plus %). There were several designated pet areas around the park. There was a fenced pet area as well. There was sufficient area to walk dogs along the park's road system. There were bag dispensers around the park to pick up waste. For being in a hazardous/severe weather area, there was no underground storm shelter. None of the structures in the park were identified as a severe weather shelter. Probably would return to this park if in the area.

We stayed here for 3 nights to see the sights in the area. The park is easy to get to & from Interstate 75 (less than a quarter mile away). We had contacted the park well ahead of our arrival regarding the number of satellite friendly sites. We were told that "many" of their sites have a clear view of the southern sky for satellite reception. On the day of our arrival, we called to ensure of site availability. We received a recording saying there were sufficient sites available for the night but the recording recommended making a reservation to get a "premium" pull-through site. Tried to connect to a human to make the reservation but the system would not transfer the call so there was no way to make a reservation. When we arrived, we discovered their definition of "many" was different than ours. So, we asked for a satellite friendly site. We were told that wasn't possible. We were put into a in a row that had extensive tree covering. The row directly behind us were the reservation sites. They had a good chance of getting satellite reception. They didn't fill up for the three days we were there. Those sites seemed to be used for short stay travelers as turn over occurred daily. It seems they could have been put in one of those to get satellite reception but that didn't happen. The park was built on ground that has significant elevation changes. The interior roads were paved but narrow. Even the designated two way road was not any wider than the designated one way roads. While we were there, an RV collided with a parked vehicle due in part to the encroachment of opposing vehicles parked along the road. There wasn't much space in sites to park extra vehicles. But that didn't stop people from parking extra vehicles (included ATV/golf carts). The sites are narrow. The pull-through sites seemed to be long enough for larger coaches with their toads attached. The sites were generally level. Two fenced designated pet areas but they were not on the map or marked so you have to stumble on them. There was sufficient area to walk a dog around the park's road system. There were no bag dispensers around the park to pick up waste. Wi-Fi reception was very slow.

We were going to stay here for a couple of nights while visiting some of the sites nearby as they were identified as being “Big Rig” friendly. Not! The park has easy access to & from US-15. The interior roads and sites are gravel. The roads and sites were narrow with some tight corners and vegetation encroachment. The pull through sites were not long enough for larger coaches with their toads attached. The sites were NOT level! We could not get level. There is an extensive tree canopy so access to the southern sky for satellite reception is poor. We were unable to get reception. From the standpoint of a big rig owner, this place deserves a rating of 1, but the rating given was for a more general use by other types of RVs.

We stayed here for a couple of nights while visiting some of the sites nearby as they were identified as being “Big Rig” friendly. Not! The access off the main road is not an easy transition due to the grade. It could create a high center issue. On top of that, on the main road there is a corner just before the access to the park so sight is extremely limited and the speed limit in this area creates even more of a problem for the limited sight. There were only a few sites that could accommodate a “Big Rig”. Those sites were in the upper portion. The interior roads were gravel. They were narrow and could use a grading. We were put in the “400” area. This area is NOT suited for big rigs. It can best be described as a horse pasture (it is right next to the horse corral). The road is in need of attention. The ever tightening circular drive in this loop has a gravel base but has grass growing through & over it. The road is narrow and difficult to find. The sites in this area were very narrow, uneven, and not well defined. One RV ended up blocking the road by not staying in the site so getting out was even more difficult than getting in. It was difficult to get onto the gravel parking area of the site. The sites were generally NOT level. Not much privacy between the sites. This area does have good access to the southern sky for satellite reception. They have full hook ups – water, electricity (50 AMP), & sewer connections. There was an outside table. WiFi reception was poor. Could never get connected to the WiFi receiver. There seem to be a lot of long term residents. No designated pet area but there was sufficient area to walk dogs along the roads. There were no bag dispensers around the park to pick up waste. For being in a hazardous/severe weather area, there was no underground storm shelter. None of the structures in the park were identified as a severe weather shelter. From the standpoint of a big rig owner, this place deserves a rating of 1 but the rating given was for a more general use by other types of RVs.

We stayed here for a couple of nights while traveling through. Not much to say other than there isn’t a lot of other parks to choose from. The park has easy access to & from Interstate 84. The park is located at the end of street which parallels the Interstate. The park is along a river. Checking in was interesting as no one was in the office. There was a sign directing incoming RV guests to go into the restaurant. The staff there looked around for the RV park staff but couldn’t find one. So the restaurant staff registered us and used the restaurant’s credit card machine to accept payment. The interior roads were gravel. The sites were a mixture of grass or gravel. The roads were narrow and the sites were not well defined. One RV blocked the road by not completely pulling into the site. The sites were generally level. Not much privacy between the sites. They have some full hook ups – water, electricity (50 AMP), & sewer connections. The connections are about in the middle of the sites. They also have what looked like electric and water only sites. Believe those were 30 AMP sites. A portion of the park is open to the sky as there are no trees so satellite reception was good. There seem to be a lot of long term residents in the area of the park covered with a tree canopy. This area wasn’t very inviting. No designated pet area but there was sufficient area to walk the dogs along the roads and near the river. There were no bag dispensers around the park to pick up waste. For being in a hazardous/severe weather area, there was no underground storm shelter. None of the structures in the park were identified as a severe weather shelter. We didn’t use the restrooms/showers/laundry room. Didn’t look in because the building looked scary.

We stayed here for a week to visit the Boston area. There were only a few other parks to choose from. The park has easy access to & from Interstate 495 via Hwy 1. But the public street (Thruston St) from Hwy 1 to the park was narrow, collapsing along the outer edge, and had low hanging vegetation which hit our RV. The park had gated entry which required entering a code to enter and leave. Didn't understand why you needed to enter a gate access code to leave. The interior roads and sites are gravel. The pull through sites were long enough for larger coaches with their toads attached. Some sites were not even close to being level. They have full hook ups – water, electricity (50/30/20 AMP), & sewer connections. The connections were located at the entrance end of the sites. There was an outside table and fire pit. A large part of the park is covered with trees and only a smaller portion is open to the sky. The tree canopy created a problem both for satellite reception and acorns falling. We ended up under an Oak tree that was dropping acorns on our RV for our entire 7 day stay. Of which only 2 days the park was full. We couldn’t move in the site due to the location of the utility connections. When we made reservations, we asked for a satellite friendly site. After we arrived, we couldn't get satellite reception due to the tree canopy. We asked to be moved but there was no other site available due to the Good Sam rally scheduled for 2 of the 7 days of our stay. So for 2 days of the 7, we had to endure the acorns falling on our RV. The WiFi required to register an account with a provider. This seems invasive. If the WiFi is included, then it shouldn't require registering. The dog park was very large. It was fenced. But it was grossly uneven between the area for small dogs versus the area for the other dogs. The area should have been split either 60/40 or 50/50. The small dog area was pitiful. There were sufficient areas to walk the dogs around the park. There were bag dispensers and collection containers around the park for waste. Check in was average due to the counter staff being busy answering phones. As with a lot of businesses these days, it seems that the customer standing at the counter gets lower priority than a potential customer calling. During the rally check-in, the 3 inbound lanes where burdened so that in coming traffic couldn't get by. The concierge service was very helpful in planning our outings to Boston. We had no use for the other facilities (snack bar, exercise room, disc golf course, biking area, activities & sports fields, meeting hall, Wellness center with massages, and multiple pools) so paying for them in the rate was a poor expense on our part. The snack bar was closed for almost all of our visit. There seem to be a lot of long term residents but most seemed to be in a separate area. But it seemed there was a long term resident next to us that drove his ATV through our space to get it to the rear of his space so he could wash it rather than going around on the park road. For being in a hazardous/severe weather area, there was no underground storm shelter. None of the structures in the park were identified as a severe weather shelter. We didn’t use the restrooms/showers/laundry room but they looked nice.
