This is a very well kept RV resort/campground. Sites all paved, neat and well laid out. Has boat ramps, nice rock, pick nick areas good sized pool, with depth from 3-5 ft. Salt water type. Very nice clubhouse and friendly staff. If you like water, lake, access, this is a great place Grounds well kept, wifi (well) it's creepy slow but you can use it for email. Not much surfing. The negative, no shade, none. Very remote, and you best have what you need upon arrival. I was in a 40ft motor home with towed. Plenty of space.

This park is a great little find for an overnight stay. The host and owners are extremely friendly and actually walked me to the site. Prior to placement they asked if I wanted satellite and apparently placed me accordingly. The $12.50 rate reflects the PA discount which they gave me. Fairly level gravel sites, and not crowded. Power was stable with full AC's running plus other appliances. Water pressure good. Yes it is a FHU at sites. Lake Eufaula is eye sight which is a huge lake. I would stay here again and it is far enough from interstate to relax.

OK, let me explain the 6 rating. We selected this campground on the basis of the RVParkReviews and ratings. Really all the good reviews for cleanliness and family oriented are correct. Emphasis on family. Kids are everywhere and many very young ones on little bikes with no parents in sight. Scary to watch for. They dart in and out all over. We wanted to have a pull through with 50 amp. Well my description of a pull though is one I don't have to unhook my towed. 'Not !' So that is strike one. I could not find the 50 amp. I had to go back to office and get a grounds assistant to show me. The 50amp was not in the power pedestal. They put another post up, but wait, it was on the other side of the coach. What? Luckily my 50amp cord reached, after running under the coach. Strike two. Now the last thing is about the only thing I have found that packs you together closer would be packaged bacon. Strike three. The campground has lots of amenities but is very very crowded and filled. Many long term people. (Not the shady kind.) But some people seem to just like to come here and stay weeks. Maybe because it is centrally located to auto drive, distance attractions. I am only here one night as a sleep over. I'm just waiting to see how quiet the park is at night. I hope the guy next door does not snore and leave his window open. I might stay again, but only if I can't locate another place in my travel zone at the needed time.

When we arrived I really don't know what I was expecting but must say I was disappointed. The resort is not as displayed on their web site. Let's just say they were creative. The sites were relatively level although they did not appear so at first0 glance. Closely spaced but as they stair step up a hill side that gives you some semblance of room but you really don't have a lot of patio area. Very rocky and gravel sites. Must use a patio mat. Power and Internet (Wi-Fi) was strong and stable. Water pressure adequate and water taste was good. Resort has a eating and banquet area and they serve breakfast. Check in was poor. The staff or clerk on duty seemed overwhelmed and inept. Since I had prepaid she could not find information but did see I had paid. Wrote my site number on map and told me to try to come back later to register. What ? Well that did not happen I just went to my site and forgot the rest. Place was full as it was the 4th. Overall gives an unkempt appearance. Wildlife is all around and the campground has a huge family of prairie dogs that nest in all campsites. Overall the place is adequate but not much more. With a little investment and up keep the place could be nice.

This campground is a great (great) one. Very near Memphis (short drive north) and casinos if you care to indulge. However, you have a huge clean pool, ideal manicured grounds , very spacious and clean to a fault. As far as I'm concerned if you want to visit the Memphis area this is the place to stay and definitely if you care to go to casinos. Could not find any fault except you had to pay for Wi-Fi. The site rate was super cheap at $14 per day, but they wanted $12 a day for Wi-Fi so we did not use it.

This campground is located just west of Canon City on US 50, approximately 10 miles. Very well kept, and arranged. Site views are wonderful. The staff is top notch. They guide you to site, help you get positioned, and even help you disconnect your tow vehicle. They are attentive to your area and even make sure your provided picnic table is cleaned upon arrival. They also have cabins to rent. We could not of picked a better campground and location. Wi-Fi is strong and free. The only caveat is cell service (Verizon) is not strong. You can use phone but at times it drifts on signal. But for the most part OK on service. They also have a verizon hot spot nearer office.

The owners were very nice and friendly. The park for the most part is a large gravel lot. Sites are level and hookups convenient. A couple of things in the area of interest are the Monument Rocks and, well, the plains. But the wind was horrible and when we were there the temps hit 111. Yes you read that right. It does have a pretty nice restaurant next door and a truck stop (fuel) across the street and convenient. Was relatively quiet from I-70 noise or appeared to be. Really not fair to say as the wind blowing would drown out any noise. A good stop for a night or two at most. But as for me you can have Kansas. I do believe I saw Auntie Em and ToTo in that wind.

OK, this is actually one of the best state parks I've been in. Very large and accommodating for large RV's with good power and electric. Well kept and clean. Volunteer staff were very friendly if needed. Now for a family this is a great place, has beach access (more later) small pool and lots of level roads to bike. Overall very nice. Negatives, well getting to the beach. Yes they have a Tram that takes you from the Tram Station to beach at 2 hours intervals. The distance is apx. 1/2 mile. You can walk or bike it also. Its fairly level. But you still have to get to the Tram station which has a parking lot for your vehicle. You will need to take umbrella, cooler, chairs, etc and I'd recommend planning to stay for your days interval as its just too much trouble to lug all that stuff. The distance to the beach is a real negative for us. On the plus side the beach is about 3.5 miles long, clean and nice. Kids, did I say kids. Yes this is a family oriented and accommodating. That's good for those with kids, but that being said they are all over the grounds on bikes and in the roads. I am shocked that over time some have not been injured by darting in front of autos and even RV's. Very busy park and significant traffic throughout the day and late evenings. Not good for us. Again, for a family or a few days its great, but has negatives for certain campers and pluses for others. Again for a state park it is excellent.

First the rate was with a promotion and you can check the site for current rates. This is a new resort of around two years old. Very beautiful resort well layer out. All sites gave ambiance of private but yet allowed visitation. Lakefront views wonderful with near all sites allowing a panoramic view. Pool very large and well kept. Has a community patio area that was great. The management had a BBQ and potluck while we were here and were wonderful host. Very quite and relaxing. Although it is very family friendly with pool and lake access, even offers rental of pontoon, some teens might get bored as town is 20 minutes away. Nearby towns do have plenty of amenities and eating places. Would recommend to anyone. This is a class A resort only.

The Good: Park was clean and well kept. Most all sites are heavily shaded although our particular site had adequate shading but still open and large. Lot #157. Electric was good as was cable. Had approximate 100 channels. Pretty lake with center spray for effect and several creeks and branches. Every one in the park was friendly. Many permanent trailers and occupants. All were well kept. Had several rental spaces for motorhomes. However be advised that 40ft. is the limit and that's for a reason. Problems or some negatives: The campground/resort can present some maneuver problems especially with a 40ft motorhome. We had to pull and straighten a few times to get backed in. But all was OK afterward. The water pressure is low, about 25 lbs. As I said the cable is good but we have not been able to acquire satellite even though it appears we have a clear view. The sites that adjoin the Hwy. 321 are noisy as the road is well traveled. The pool was closed but appears to be a large multiple shaped pool. Nice tennis court. Has a mini golf area (Carpet golf) A small playground but clean and has nice play equipment. The restaurant was closed. Can't assess. All in all, a nice resort although very full. Kept in mind that most all campgrounds in this area are geared to smaller trailers and coaches. And the majority are limited to 40' for motorhomes. It is away from Gatlinburg to the tune of about 10+ miles. That's a negative, but we have our towed and motorcycle so not an issue. If you want to be real close to Gatlinburg, with trolley service and have a pretty nice campground then Twin Creeks would be my choice. One last suggestion. Make sure you drop your towed at the front and some of the turns are too acute with it attached.

The ocean front view we had was great. Electric and water pressure was good and had no problems. The wifi was weak at times but manageable. I would return. Now the negatives: Pets are allowed but not monitored enough. We had no real problems except we did observe a couple using the beach area and the owner did not act appropriately afterwards. Also, NO pool. I love beach but at times we enjoy the pool. Also, we had a beach front site. It has a small (about 8' strip) of lawn area in front of the sites. It should have orinmental fencing between site to prevent it being used as throughfare. People are constantly using this as a walkway to the beach steps.

This is a typical resort type park. The site was clean, security with key pass, all the typical resort pads. Our site was pull through as most are. Each has shrubs and even orange and lime trees. A nice touch. Now all that being said, I was reminded of the movie: Planes, Trains and Automobiles while here. It was noisy. North of park is I-10, SW is Tucson Airport and they have a train line near too. That does not contribute to a quite night. It was convenient but I think I might try to find a less urban park if I stayed here long. Its a nice resort, but with the above mentioned noise plus the in and out of rv's it was just too noisy especially if you are parked near the front area with the added check in and out noise.

The only reason this park failed to get a 10 from me is the lack of a pool. The camp sites are level, gravel but a fine mesh gravel and not prone to track ins. Most sites are well shaded and wide. Separation is a nice split rail fencing and also trees. This gives you nice privacy as well as shade and helps should any wind blow. They keep this place clean and neat. After each camper leaves they clean the sites and rack them to make sure no tracks are left in the gravel. That's neat. Throughout the day the grounds are being patrolled and kept in order. Top notch. Yes, I would return. A cozy place that makes you feel secure and welcome. The camp staff were extremely friendly. Good power, water pressure was fine contrary to a previous poster saying otherwise, they had strong Wi-Fi at my site although I did not use it as I used my Verizon card. Good service on that too here.

This is a city park for mainly the balloon fiesta. It is flat, dry and they pack you in. We stayed in the so called VIP area and other than being close to the gate that's about it. Just a huge dirt and gravel parking lot. It served the purpose for the Balloon Fiesta and you should know it is basically a dry camp. They will fill you with water and offer a pumping service for a fee. Both about $20 each if you need it.

This is basically a 55+ resort. Many park models but very nice in a Spanish type setting. Super clean. Very large area although the sites are close you don't feel cramped. They have two large pools (a cool pool and a warm pool), plus two hot tubs (a warm tub and a hot spa type). All salt water pools. Super grounds and lots of areas for hobbies. Very convenient to all major type stores. Only draw back, its windy in this area and it blows about 1/2 the month. Sometimes it can get high winds. Never could leave the awnings down.
