They greet you in your coach when you arrive and take you to your site. Roads are adequate for a big rig, pad size depends on which class of site you want. Our was site 49, plenty long enough for coach and toad. New owners are friendly and obviously wanting to make this a great park. Laundry was a bit expensive, but one of the cleanest and best laid out we've seen on our full time travels.

Date of Stay:

We were here for a rally with 50 other coaches. The sites aren't super big, but adequate. This is one huge facility! It's the only place we've had a person directing traffic for the hookup area. This is not a resort but a commercial establishment, but we'd stay here again if we are in the area.

Truly a resort that lives up to its name. We stayed here on their promotional program for new renters and potential owners. Great physical layout and clubroom, level, concrete pads, wide roads. Excellent service. Near to beach and other amenities.

This park is great for a stop over. Easy access off of I-10, gated access, back in and pull throughs. 50A available, and the management were very friendly. This is an older park, so some turns are kind of tight. But plenty of room between sites. But the I-10 highway noise is loud. if you are a light sleeper, look elsewhere. Lots of stores, restaurants, and RV dealers near by.

This is a nice park, and the owners spend a lot of time keeping it that way. However, a large rig can be a problem. As is, even though the sites are pull through, you have to park your toad in front of your coach, on the road. Lots of aspen trees make getting satellite difficult. Cellular data - both Verizon and T-Mobile - are slim to none. Many sites are still only 30A so if you need more make sure you specify when making your reservation. The camp's WiFi is slow and intermittent. So yes, a nice park, but with our large coach we will look elsewhere next time we're in the area.

Made my reservation (and paid for the whole stay in advance) for a premium 50Amp pull through. Surprise #1: When I arrived I had to disconnect to get in the site. Surprise #2: This was a shared pedestal site, so my neighbor was 3 feet away. Surprise #3: There was only one 50Amp receptacle and it was occupied. Owner said 50A is first come, first served but the site using the 50A was a permanent. Owner was willing to sell me a "cheater box" so I could use the two 30 Amps as a 50A (illegal in many states). Owner refused to move me citing "scheduling difficulties". Also had some water pressure issues, and only half the laundry machines worked.

Good for an overnight stay. Gravel pull throughs, level, easy access. Power was fine, as was water. Don't know about WiFi as I use my own. Only negative is that they allow some of the oldest and most worn out RV's (using the term loosely) to stay there.

Good for a overnight stay. Conveniently close to Dallas. Pull through sites are a bit narrow; small trees make entry/exit difficult. Nice cotton gin to take a stroll through. Did have some power issues, but they were working on it.

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.

Date of Stay:

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.

Date of Stay:

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.

Date of Stay:

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.

Date of 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.
