Passport America rate. This campground is basically very nice all around. Friendly service, wide RV spots, nicely kept, super view onto the lake. We only spend a couple of days, but would have spend more if we knew this would be so nice. Best wi-fi we have experienced in a long time. No shops or restaurants "just around the corner" so shop before you get here. We will be back to this place some day.

This site is nice in general, and I could have rated this place quite high if not for the toilet and shower facilities. Very few sites have a sewer hook-up, and this means that you are forced to use the park toilet facilities. One whole camp section shares 4 toilets and just one shower (one shower is just not enough for a park with just a limited number of full hook-ups). Ours - in G section - wasn't cleaned in 5 days, while the inspection sheet for the facility was "ticked" in all boxes as being OK. One toilet was soiled on the seat, and the shower featured the same hairballs and soap bits throughout our stay. This experience lets the park down to the extend that our stay should have been an 8, but ended up a 3.

Nice place in general. Location a bit remote. Trees provide shade on all sites, but also makes the reception of sat TV near impossible with a roof mounted dish. We did manage to find a small hole between trees on site #120. Verizon Internet reception was good. Bumpy road that are narrow in places for big rigs. Restrooms are old and not in good repair. No soap provided and no means for drying your hands. We never found any washing machine. The park would benefit from a general overhaul. Very nice golf courses nearby. We would stay here again.

This is like camping in the woods. Only site that will let you use an "on the roof" satellite dish looks to be site #21 - all other sites have no clear view towards the south. Good Internet from own Verizon based system. Roads are very narrow in places, so watch for overhanging branches and leaning tree trunks. Camping area #2 is all refurbished and will offer the best spots including sewer connections, but all of this area was not made available to us when we arrived. Easy drive to down town Savannah. We took our own car there and unpacked our push-bikes from the trunk. Nice way to see everything. Head for the down-town Tourist Information and start looking for parking meters here.

Very nice sea-side park. Heaven for boaters and fishermen. Fluctuating electric power is a major issue. We was struggling running a single AC unit, and when we connected our surge protector we got no power whatsoever. Bring supplies as shops are not close by, and also bring lots of insect repellent - you will need it.

Another Thousand Trails campground that is not maintained like it used to be. Campground store is now closed, and with no plans to reopen it. Water pressure 100 PSI (twice the pressure recommended for RVs) which blew our Camco water pressure reducer, our toilet valve and our wet bay check valve. Wanted propane when leaving but was told there was no one was able to operate the propane station. If it wasn't for the convenient location, and expensive membership already paid, we could find better places to stay.

Price reflects Coast 2 Coast rate. The June 2012 reviewer must mistake this campground with some other one. Paved roads and gravel sites - not a problem. Nice view of the Colorado River, palm trees throughout the campground, mini golf, pitch and put golf course, club house, 2 swimming pools, 2 hot tubs, all nicely maintained. Don't forget that this is a desert location, so vegetation reflects this. Emerald Cove remains a favorite spot of ours, and we return to here every year.

Unfortunately I have to agree with the previous posts - this is a campground in rapid decline. We have been here before and found the place to be OK, but we could see how standards were slipping. Another thing is that the campground is very close to large areas filled with cows, and when we were there, there was a strong smell from the cows accompanied by ½ million flies. Next time we pass through this area we will find another place to stay, and there are plenty of them nearby.

We liked this RV park. Friendly check-in. Paved roads and a perfect drive-through concrete site. The place was quite busy with long term residents from the oil industry, but everything kept very tidy and nice. We did expect some noise from the I-10 but it was next to nothing. New(ish) washer/dryers at a very reasonable price - we like that. Free breakfast - we didn't have the time to try it out so we can't comment on the quality, but the fact that it is offered shows commitment. We will stay here again whenever we visit Beaumont.

This is a very large campground, but make no mistake, it is a gem. A well-maintained park with large sites. We stayed here on Veterans Day weekend and there were plenty of vacant sites. Swimming pool was not heated so we did not get to try it out, but we can imagine it would be very nice during summer months. The beach is close by and so is local shopping. We also got to try out the State Park Golf Course, not world class, but very enjoyable nevertheless. We will definitely come back to this place.

This campground has 2 loops - an old one without sewer connections and a newer one with sewer connections. The old loop is extremely overgrown to the extent that a motorhome will catch the vegetation on both sides going on the main road. Many of the old loop sites are an absolute nightmare to get a large rig into. We stayed at site 18 as it was listed as suited for a 40" motorhome. We got paint damage on both sides of the motorhome due to tree branches sticking out way too far. We would strongly suggest that large rigs not make use of the old loop and stick to the new loop only. We would like to come back here some day now that we know where our rig will fit in.

This is an extremely enjoyable campground. If you pick sites "in the boat ramp end" you are likely to get a nice bay view from your site. Most sites are spacious which we enjoy. Bath houses are in especially good condition, although we do disagree with the fact that they close the bathhouses for cleaning during the busiest morning hours. Super nice beaches close by which are very reachable if you bring a pedal bike. We liked it here a lot and we will be back.

Our second stay here. Again - we enjoyed our stay here as this is a top class campground. Book early and get your self one of the few sites facing the sea. We will return.

It would seem that the new ownership by Encore means that the privileges that all the members paid large sums of money for, is been taken away piece by piece. It makes us wonder if the strategy is to "scare" all existing members away before setting up a new moneymaking membership? Bath houses are well below par, and the ground is not maintained like it used to be. All security systems (guarded entry and golf cart patrols) have been abandoned. The old Thousand Trails system seems to be falling apart and all the prime sites are now not available to TT members. This is all in all a very disappointing. development.

Our second visit here. Top class campground amongst many permanent "houses". We got a site right next to the main pool and club house. Not cheap accommodation but you get what you pay for. The site is pretty empty this time of year and we felt like we had everything to ourselves. We will return to this place for sure.
