This is a real nice RV park. Great pool area. Restrooms were very nice and clean, and there are numerous restroom facilites throughout the park. Layout of the park is nice. Sites are gravel, and level. Grass was in good shape and well kept. Water pressure seemed pretty low. Didn't use wifi much, but it did connect fast initially. Park mgmt was friendly. The park has a nice, quiet feel to it, although this was helped by the fact that it wasn't very busy. We look forward to returning.

Nice resort. Restaurant on site was good. Store is well stocked. Wi-Fi worked well. Cable TV was decent. Utilities were fine. Resort is in good condition. Site has a nice concrete patio with picnic table. Pool area is really nice. Park was not full over the 4th of July weekend. Tons of motorcycles on site, operating "mostly" respectfully from a noise standpoint. The gravel areas could use some weed control, dogs picked up some grass burs in our site. Resort employees were nice.

This is a nice campground. Owners are really nice, and have put a ton of time and effort into this park. Best wifi I have seen yet in an RV park. Cable TV had about 25 channels, decent. Excellent pool area with 4 pools that don't seem "right on top of each other", given how the area is laid out. Adult pool is great. Site was gravel and fairly level, roads are in good shape. Power was good, water pressure acceptable. No complaints about this park, we look forward to returning.

A very good campground for families. Somewhat rustic campground (in very good shape) in a wooded area. Roads are asphalt and in fine condition. Sites are gravel. Electric/water/sewer hookups are all fine. No cable TV. We received several antenna channels alright. Wi-Fi didn't seem too good. The staff at this park is by far the best part. They work very hard. Saturdays are absolutely amazing with all that they have planned for kids. Parents, your kids will have a good time at this park!

Phenomenal place. Everything is concrete (level and in great shape) and grass (best I have seen in an RV park). Layout is excellent. Cable TV had 70-80 channels (30 or so digital and the rest analog). Hedges between each site provide privacy. Dog run has 2 separate gated areas, very well thought out. Wifi had a strong signal and connected quick, but did seem to time out often. Expensive park at $50 for weekend rates, but I have already booked my next stay. Shuttle to casino was great.

This is my second review of this park. I am upping my score from 8 to a 9 this time. This park has a very nice "feel" to it. Very beautful park, grass is in good shape. Sites are not quite as "on top of each other" as some RV parks. Previous reviews of this park mentioned poor road conditions. In my last review, I had said that the roads seemed fine. I must have either not been paying great attention last time, or just happened to miss the potholes. This time, it rained most of the weekend, and yes, the roads are in below average shape. There are more potholes than I had noticed previously, the water standing in the holes made it real easy to notice them this time. Driving right in through the main gate, it was impossible to navigate without driving through several holes. Walking on all of the roads throughout the park was an exhibit in dodging holes and trying to find areas that were less muddy than others. But I will say, that is the only thing about this park that I don't like. The buildings are outstanding, and the people that work here are good. Cable TV seemed better this time, sound was fine and the channel quality was decent. (We were in a different section of the park, perhaps that has something to do with it). Wifi was alright, I still wish it was included in the rate as opposed to having to pay $5 for it. But, it worked fine. The overall feel of this park is what will keep up coming back. We had a nice, pleasant stay. I love the taco stand right outside the main gate, as well as the Dairy Palace just up the road.

This park is in very good shape. Everything was well kept. Our site was level. Cable TV was not great, but I don't find many RV parks that do have "great" cable TV service. We had site #1 which backs up to Parvin Road. There was a lot of road noise, as there was a truck facility of some sort nearby. I would certainly try to get a spot as far away from Parvin Road as possible next time, but even so the noise wouldn't prevent me from staying here again. In a city the size of Kansas City, road noise is of course to be expected. I had not been aware of this park previously. I really liked it and will be back for sure.

This is a nice county park. Water and sewer are now available at individual sites, though not all sites have sewer yet (website has a map with amenities available at each site). Sites are gravel and some leveling will be required. The park has tons of trees and has some modest hills. Electricty and water were fine. Very relaxing feel to this park, and it was quiet. I was there on a race weekend, and it was pretty full. Bath house looked in good shape, I didn't use it but others in the group said it was very clean. This park was a great setting for our large group of race fans. I don't believe the park is very busy other than for a handful of the biggest race weekends at Knoxville Raceway. The group I was a part of has already reserved for next year, and seems to be growing each year. This was a very satisfactory park to stay in, and I look forward to returning.

Rate reflects the Good Sam rate in the adults only/executive section of the park. Phenomenal RV park! No complaints whatsoever. Very beautiful setting. Everything is in tip top shape. We enjoyed the peace and quiet of the adults only section, and the adults only pool. Water, power, and cable were good. Wi-Fi was OK, it took some constant tinkering, as some networks seemed to "time out" or freeze up. But, there are enough Wi-Fi networks available, I would just connect to another network and it worked fine. BBQ dinner and ice cream social on Sunday night for the Labor Day weekend were well attended. My only wish is that this park was closer than 4 hours from home for us. We will be back for sure, and I would recommend this park to anyone. Office staff and grounds staff were great, and the store in the office was well stocked, and had very fair prices ($3 for a good sized bottle of BBQ sauce, probably would have cost $4 or $5 at HEB). This is our favorite park we have stayed in yet, and we did so based on the reviews on this site. Thanks Buckhorn for a great time, and keep up the outstanding work!

Traveled a couple hours to this park for a weekend getaway; we chose this park due to the good reviews it has received. Past reviews seem accurate. Park is not that hard to get into if you do a brief amount of research before-hand; yes the sign does come up on you quick but the turn getting in is fine. We arrived after the RV Lodge had closed, and used the gate code that had been given to us over the phone when reserving. Interior roads are all patched up fine, I can see where there were holes in the past, but everything is in good shape now. Sites have a concrete pad (ours was perfectly level), and nice grass lawn. Pedestal is well placed. Water pressure was strong. 30 amp breaker tripped on the second day we were there, with only the A/C running on electric. Other campers in adjacent sites said their breaker had tripped during their stay as well. I didn't like that, as we leave the dogs in the trailer while using the pool, and on a 100 degree Texas day, the dogs would not get by very long at all without the A/C running. Luckily, we had just returned to the trailer when the breaker tripped (I am never away from the trailer for more than an hour at a time for this very reason). Cable TV was indeed sub-par as most previous reviews have stated. Most channels were fuzzy, and the sound seemed intermittent on most channels. We were able to watch a fair number of channels with an "alright" picture, so it wasn't a total loss. I did pay the $5 for Wi-Fi, but never used it. I think having to pay for Wi-Fi when you are already shelling out $37 a night to stay in the park is pretty bogus. The swimming pool area at the RV Lodge is nice. You cannot take alcohol into the pool, in fact you are not supposed to take alcohol anywhere other than your own RV site. Not a big problem, but some people I'm sure would like to know about this in advance. We were not there during First Mondays, so the park was about 25% full. Bath houses looked nice, but I did not go in. This property is huge, with all of the cottages and the Grand Lodge further back from the road than the RV sites. We didn't explore that area as time just ran short. All in all, this is a very nice park and I would stay again for sure. I very rarely give a 10 score. This park gets a 8. 1 point deducted for the combination of shoddy cable TV and having to pay for Wi-Fi, and 1 point deducted for the issues with breakers tripping (especially when the park was 25% full). Perhaps it is something out of the park's control (I know the alcohol issue is indeed out of their control due to the "private club" TABC thing). We will probably be back, as everyone was friendly and we did have a real nice time.

We stayed here 6 years ago when the park was very new. It was great then, and it is still a very nice park. The roads and sites are all paved. Roads easy to maneuver, and sites are all nice and big. I checked out the restrooms/showers in the main building at the front of the property, there are 6 huge bathrooms with showers; they looked very nice. We used the pool this time and enjoyed it tremendously. Ice machine at the front desk, $1 a bag. Power and water were good, cable TV was decent. Wi-Fi was slow to connect at first, but then worked pretty well. We enjoy this park very much, and will be back for sure. The road noise from I-20 is present at all times, but it didn't bother us at all, it is not "super loud". Park would get a 10 from me, but it doesn't look like the grass gets watered, and as a result, there are sticker plants everywhere. The grass itself wasn't unmowed, but the sticker plants were a foot tall in some places, they grow in a hurry. Not ideal for dogs. I guess that is the only thing I can think of that isn't "excellent" at this park. I imagine a lot of people are not aware that there are 3 nice hotel rooms in the upper level of the main building, as well as a pretty big banquet room. There was a family reunion going on, with most of the attendees staying in RVs, and a few of them that do not have RVs were staying in the hotel rooms. This setup would be great for families or other groups looking to have a get together.

We stayed here for one night on our way north, and also one night on the way back south. I sought out a good park anywhere between OKC and KC and became convinced that this was the best place for us, given the other reviews on this website. The thing I liked most about the park is that is fenced and gated, and they provide an access code to get in the gate. We arrived late in the night as we often do and appreciated not having to wait or call to have the gate opened. We felt 100% safe and secure in this park. The park is beautiful, being brand new everything really shines. The concrete looks clean enough to eat off of, and the grass is amazing. The sites are big and level, and the hookups are all right by each other and feature a lighted pedestal. The bathrooms and showers were spotless. The huge fenced in dog run was something we enjoyed tremendously. Gentleman in the office was very friendly and helpful to me during both stays. This is the second nicest park we have ever stayed in, and we will be back for sure.

Stayed for 4 nights in July. We stayed in one of the upper level sites, I would not even consider staying on the lower level as the spots and roads are way too tight (although the price is about half of what the upper level sites run). The upper level spots are not the roomiest themselves, but they are better than below. The park is nice, TONS of landscaping that gives it a resort feel. The problem is that there is almost TOO MUCH shrubbery, bushes, trees, etc. Our site had trees on both sides that made it very difficult to put all 4 slides and the awning out. I had to go in the back and tie a tree branch back so that we could back up far enough into the spot with a 42 footer. Also, there is very little room to set up chairs, etc due to the site being narrow. Great dog walk area on the upper level, the best I have ever seen. Road noise from I-15 is pretty loud considering how far off the road you are, but I could live with it. Nothing about this park would deter me from staying again. Paved sites, paved roads in good shape (albeit narrow). All in all it feels like they tried to cram too many spots into the space that they have. But, because the park is so beautiful it makes for an enjoyable stay. The price is way too high, but given the southern CA location that figures. This same park in other parts of the country would charge $30-35. One final thing, they give you a bag when you come in with tons of great information regarding park FAQ's, how to use all of the amenities, area hospitals/ churches/ places of interest, etc. This was a nice touch as it makes you feel like they care that your stay is pleasant.

Will score a 7 because the price was good. The park is OK overall, we knew coming in that it was small so we made a reservation. Ellen was very friendly and led us to our spot. The pull-through site was decent sized, but the turn getting into it is tight. We have a 42' and it just did make the turn. The perimeter row is pretty close to the middle row, so you don't have alot of room to maneuver. Once in the site, we had to park right in the middle due to trees on both sides, would not have been able to put the bedroom slide out on the road side had we aligned on the left side of the spot. Oh well, we fit and it worked out OK. Good power and good water pressure, didn't use the cable so can't say about that. The dog run is fenced so you can let the pups off the leash. The WiFi is almost not worth using (at least for the night we were there). It was as sporadic as I have ever seen, I ended up switching it off and using the Cingular card. We did not use the pool, restrooms, or laundry. There are a majority of long-term residents here. This is one time where I would have been well in favor of a fence or some shrubs in between the sites, the guy next to us parked his truck about 3 feet from our motorhome (and that was even with us being centered in the site instead of aligned with the left-hand side. Can only imagine how close he would have been otherwise). We stayed one night passing through. I would probably try a different park in town if passing through again, this place is fine for smaller vehicles but is just too small for the big rigs.

Price was a little steep, or I would have given it an 8. Friendly office staff, and Bill led me right to our spot on the golf cart. Decent-sized pull through, concrete is showing its age and is breaking apart/coming up in places. Very little grass, mostly large gravel/rocks where there is not concrete. Everything about this park is aging, the picnic table at our spot was barely worth sitting on (though I did see nicer tables at other sites). Good water pressure, and excellent 50 amp power. The dog run appears to consist of a big dirt lot that had a semi truck and a bunch of junk in it, I didn't even open the gate and explore it any further after seeing that. The continental breakfast was a nice offering, it featured good food. We stayed for one night passing through. I would stay again, probably not on a long-term basis but it is OK to use for a night. I would have felt better about staying there had the price been about $15 less.
