This park deserves one of my very few 10 ratings. The park itself is great,. Flat concrete pads, wide roads, nice landscaping, and a patio and casita for each site. The patio, which overlooks the river, is great. The owners are super friendly and helpful, you won't find better. Three nights a week they host a happy hour with fresh baked goodies, one night a week the prepare a dinner and you bring a potluck dish. Every morning the prepare a fresh baked breakfast. It doesn't get any better than this!

Over the years, we've stayed and enjoyed this park. We were looking forward to our stay, but when we hooked up we found the power to be low (under 110V no load). In fact, as soon as we started to draw power, our EMS turned power off as it dropped under 104V. I noted this to the owner, who verified the under 110V power but he thought it was OK. I have a large coach with sophisticated electronics, and proper voltage is important so I asked for a refund and left. I understand that they have had a new power grid installed, so the problem may be fixed by now, but we could not stay here. To their credit, they didn't hesitate to refund my payment.

This is a good park for either an overnight or for a longer period. We were there 4 nights, and found lots of things to do and see in the area. The park was well laid out, spaces very long and flat, power and utilities were good, so no complaints. The owners were very friendly and willing to help with local info and suggestions. We would stay here again if in the area.

We've stayed here several times over the past 5 years, and we'll stay here again. It is a little remote, but 30 minutes driving will get you pretty well any facility you desire. The park itself is well laid out, even though some sites get a bit close due to the shape of the site. But everyone gets plenty of room, the sites are gravel but ours was flat and even. We have seen continued improvement of the park by the friendly owners. In short, nice park.

This one is hard to rate as it has new owners and they are trying hard. But still, the access off the highway has a serious crown, twisting the rig. The road in and out of the park are seriously rutted. The premium loops are OK, but the site we had was small, narrow and short. With the other traffic parked around us site entry was extremely difficult. Probably OK for trailers, fiver and shorter motor coaches but difficult for big rigs. It did have decent Internet but the rates were quite high.

This is a good stopover for a night stay. It isn't a resort, but the sites are flat, gravel, and have adequate access. Don't care for the Tengo internet, but I have my own. Recommended for a short stay.

We use this park frequently as a stopover from Dallas to Colorado. It is easy access, flat gravel sites, moderate spacing, good facilities. Owners are very friendly, and have free coffee and doughnuts in the morning. Some highway noise from the nearby I-40 traffic. I'm sure we'll stay here again.

Good place for a short stay. Level concrete pads, good access and room to maneuver. Reasonable highway noise, and some trains. Lots of beeping noises during the day from the concrete plant next door. But a good place to stay while visiting the Austin area. Our rate was a group rate as we has about 10 RVs stay there.

A very good place to stop for the night. Sites are a little narrow and gravel, but they are long enough for our big rig. And they are flat. Utilities were fine, no problem and the internet was good. A little tight maybe, but certainly not enough to be a problem. The gas station on the corner has truck lanes and cheap (er) diesel. And the Pizza Plus a mile away had some of the best pizzas ever. We would stay here again, no problem!

This park was a pleasure. Easy access, long pull throughs, well placed utilities, friendly owners, this place has it all. The showers/restrooms looked nice from the outside, but we never use them. Only missed a 10 because the Tengo internet is very poor and was a constant struggle. But we certainly would stay here again.

Date of Stay:

This is a new park, well designed and laid out. Lots of easy roads, no tight corners, and no trees. Long paved pull through sites. Super fast WiFi. Large store and common facilities. Did not use the pool/spa, but they looked great. No road noise that we noticed. Only point of is that all sites are sloped, but they have leveled the middle part so for most people it is OK. More of an issue if you have a big rig. We certainly will stay here the next time we are in this area.

Date of Stay:

If you drive a big rig and get here the first time you'll wonder if you made a mistake coming here. But then, there is enough room, you check in, and head to your site. Again, you wonder if you made a mistake. But then you notice that you actually have plenty of room and park your rig. Then you notice it has 50 amp. Then you notice it also has cable (you won't get satellite), and water, and sewer. Then take a walk around and see the beautiful lake, Mt Shasta looming overhead, and you'll appreciate being here. We will come back.

One of the few parks I'll give a 10. Beautiful layout, excellent grounds keeping, reasonably sized sites, free shuttle to town or casino, a beautiful indoor pool and hot tub, the works. Only $33 if you have or get a players card. I wish there were more parks like this one! We will be back again. BTW, the casino seafood buffet (Thursdays) is worth the $21.

Actually a much nicer park than what I expected. And the cost:: $20 a night for full hookups! I would have expected a park that is in a tourist area with all amenities to charge more. A visit to Antelope Canyon should be mandatory, it's beautiful. Site are gravel, a little slope-y but watching how you park your rig helps. Had good Verizon and satellite. We'd stay here again!

One of the few parks I give a 10 to. Obviously well designed and laid out, easy entry and access to sites. Sites are fine gravel and level, and all the amenities are there and work. The office is a nice place, and the Bar and Grill nice enough to attract customers from outside the park. All the park personnel we met were friendly and helpful. We would stay here again if ever in this area.
