We stayed in the lower loop since it has 50 amp sites. Upper loop has 30 amp only. Roads are paved and in good shape. Pads are paved but narrow. All sites have a fire ring and a covered picnic table. Grass was in need of mowing, but okay. This was Thanksgiving week, but there were still a few 50 amp sites open and many 30 amp sites were open. Note that they close the park in December now for deer hunting. Camp host is friendly. Folks at the gate and not the brightest crew, so make sure you have your registration / pre-registration paperwork handy. If you have a 40' or longer coach and want to use satellite TV try to register for sites 1,3,4,8,10,12-15,18-31,34,36,37,42-46,48-50,63. Other sites are up in the trees or very unlevel. Lots of areas to walk dogs. Not really a lot for kids to do. Recommend you register for sites at Recreation.gov.

This park is located 3 miles south of I-20 just off FM1382 and south of Fort Worth. It is a large wooded park with lots of undergrowth. Primary roads are very good. Roads in the loops are somewhat beat up. We had no problem with overhanging trees since there has been tree trimming. The pads in the Eagle Ford area are cement and newly paved. The pads in the Lakeview loop are asphalt and are at the end of their useful life. Both of these loops have full E/W/S, and the sites have fire rings and a picnic table (some of which are covered). It looks like there has been a recent electrical upgrade. Recommend that upon registration you take your toad and check out the assigned site since some are very short and can just handle a truck camper or class B. Some are large enough for a 40 ft rig, and some could take a 43. Lots of trees but we could use our dish. Note that this is the northern end of a hilly area, and some of the sites are not level. A few will require a lumber yard to get your rig level. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Super staff. The park is very clean with no trash around. There is a marina, beach (sort of), bike trails, jogging trails, playgrounds in the woods, and lots of things for families with kids to enjoy. It is also adjacent to the Penn Farm historical area. We could see the trucks on I-20 3 miles across the lake, but could not hear them. There is some noise from the adjacent farm road especially if your site is near the road. Coming in or leaving there is a parking area so you can unhook or hook up your toad. We were here in late November, and it was very quiet. You could count the campers on one hand; but in the summer it is probably jammed due to its location. Visiting Dallas or Fort Worth? Then this is the RV park to use. We will be back.

Much or all of the staff in the office and store are new, so if you need info, ask a Tiffin owner. The water was turned off on 13 Nov, which is about the normal time for CRB (Camp Red Bay to you non-Tiffin coach owners). The water faucets have been fixed and secured so they are not loose in the box. Wifi is much improved. With the extension of the service building toward the south, much of the lot in that area is being paved. That is because the new bays are for painting and they need to get rid of the dust around those bays. The new paving encourages the workers to drive at mach 3 around the campground. Where it has not been newly paved, rain still turns the place into grey slime. The new visitors lounge is very nice. If you want to sit outside, the Allegro Club has invested with some nice furniture under a covered patio by the club. Prices in the store have jumped, so check on Amazon first.

Paved streets and pads. Pads are a little short and narrow. Those on north end are not level. Lots of additional parking nearby, but many guests park their toads in the road! Trash cans are limited. Got to watch for the access (on north side of the Shell station). Staff was very friendly and helpful. Lots of places to walk the dogs, but watch out for washed out areas in the dark. No fenced dog run (despite plenty of room for one). Great place to stay if passing through on I-20. Access to interstate is good and noise is limited.

This park is located 1/8 mile north of exit 84 off I-40. It is almost adjacent to a Flying J, but there is little traffic noise. Owner is very friendly. Roads are gravel as are sites. Sites are wide and level and have a table and fire ring. Wifi is strong and cable is good. There is a large mowed field adjacent to the park for the walking of dogs. Park is very clean. There are some longer term residents along the south fence line, but there are very quiet and neat. We have traveled through this area on numerous occasions, and this is, by far, the best place to stop overnight. There is no pool, but there is a nice playground for kids. All in all, this is a gem for Arkansas. We will certainly stay here again. Note, follow the directions on the web site and go slow after the truck stop. Look for the yellow sign.

Date of Stay:

Right off the I-10 at Ext 847. Entrance and interior roads all paved. Sites are somewhat narrow, but long and paved. Utilities are good. Front office staff friendly and helpful. This is adjacent to the Ford Arena (in fact there is a gate in the fence). Near highway and ball park, but it was remarkably quiet. The park was full, but it was quiet. Very clean. All the grass is neatly cut. Wi-Fi was actually pretty good (but we were near the office). Places to walk the dog, but the off leash area was the same size you find at a KOA (ittsy bittsy for tiny dogs). They have the land, but the size of the off leash area is very small.

This park is 2 miles south of I-10. The road is good. Interior roads are paved, as are the sites. Office staff was very helpful. The park is very clean. There are two pools, with one specifically for adults. There is no camp store, but there is a convenience store within walking distance. There is a fishing pond and playground for kids. Lots of places to walk the dog, and a large fenced off leash area at the south end of the park. There were a few mosquitoes around, but this is La. This is really an RV park with a small motel out front. No shade is the only shortcoming. Very, very nice place and we will use this as a stopover again.

We have frequently stayed here, and were apprehensive due to the weather. This winter the temps were well below freezing, and the landscaping took a beating. Some of the palms lining the streets died as did some of the foliage around the sites. Then in early May Foley was hit with about 28" of rain in one day, causing the lake to flood all of the sites close to the lake along with the pool. Clubhouse and outer sites were okay. We got here a week later and the staff was hard at work. The damage from the winter has been mostly fixed. Some smaller palms have fronds that are damaged, but the rest is beautiful. Even replaced the dead/damaged trees lining the streets. As for the flooding, the sites have been cleaned. Flooded casitas are being repaired and it looks like most of that work has been completed. We wasted a good worry - this place is still super. The staff makes the difference. The office staff is the best ever.

There are 2 parts to this RV park. Anchor Cove is on the west end. It is located adjacent to the outdoor rental facility and right on the bay. The roads are dirt, sites are dirt, and many are very shaded. Bring a broom because there is sand everywhere. There is 30 amp service and water (no sewer and no cable). This is really designed for TTs, pop ups, and tents. On the east end is Battleship Row. This is laid out for motorhomes and 5th wheels. Roads are paved and so are pads. Pads are wide but somewhat short (but adequate). There is 50 amp service, water, and sewer. No cable. Some sites are shaded. The bay is actually across a wide area of concrete used in days past for the tie down of sea planes - so you can see the water from the front row, but it is not really water front. Both areas have a beach; but this is bay water and tinted from the rivers feeding it. There are pavilions for picnics. There are playgrounds, disc golf, mini-golf, fishing etc for the kids - but some of the facilities are suffering from lack of maintenance ($). If you are navigating here with GPS plug in 1100 Bronson Road in Pensacola. If you use the intersection of Bronson and Lillian (Rt 98) you will find yourself a half mile off to the west. If you arrive on weekends or evenings, the registration process is confusing. You go find a site that is empty (note that you have avoid those with a small blue or white card posted showing that although the site looks empty, the resident has simply driven off in his class B or C rig). So you need a site with no one in it and no card in the holder. Then occupy the site, and then drive back to the gate to register. Note that the access road to the RV park is long and takes a few turns - just stay on it. There is only one road with signs at the end pointing to each part of the park. Lots of places to walk dogs although no off leash area. Boat ramps are available. Full time staff in the gate house / office was very helpful. The part time office staff - not so much. This place is about 9 miles west of the Naval Aviation museum and the Blue Angels. It is 30 minutes to downtown Pensacola and the historical district. Good base to tour the area.

This COE campground is near Georgetown and Sun City. Although near Georgetown, it is really rural. Access road is good, but look out for the deer which are everywhere. Campground is gated. The northern loop is 30 amp only. The southern loop is now all 50 amp (although COE allows tent campers to suck up these sites rather than limiting them to rigs which need 50 amp). Lots of trees and cactus. Many birds and deer. Our site was away from the lake, and it was a deserted area; while the sites by the lake were busy. But, on weekdays, the whole area is quiet. No sewer hookups in the park, but the dump site is handy. No cable and due to the trees, the only TV is OTA. All the sites are paved, with BBQs (clean) and shelters (some screened). If you have a boat, note that even the lake front sites are not water access due to the drop off to the lake and the rocks - you have to use the boat ramp. If you have a dog, there are lots of places to walk the dogs, but there are lots of small round (really non painful) burrs. All in all this is a nice campground. Book well in advance via recreation.gov.

After reading the previous reviews, I had to go back and check that we had stayed in the same place! Access is pretty good, except for the very rough cattle guard entry which will really rock your coach. There are signs posted that alert the traveler that there is "no propane", "no camp store", and "no dump station". Interior roads are dirt. Sites are dirt. This place is in the open so the dirt does blow. The sites are very narrow unless you get one on the end. They are so narrow (and divided by wooden posts and thorny vines) that we had to keep moving the coach to get the slides out. The sites are also very short. You will have an issue unless you get a site at the very back of the park so your toad can stick out in the open area. Dumpster is an old open trailer. The dog run is a 10x20 dirt area with 2' chicken wire around it. This place is adjacent to I-25 so there is lots of truck noise (but the aircraft flying overhead and the trains block out some of the truck noise!). The place is very dark at night, and all the signs promoting guns makes one wonder about the security. The horse stables and facilities are far better than the RV park. The saving grace for this place is the location. There are few RV parks on I-25 south of Albuquerque, and if you are coming east on US 60, there is nothing at all for hours. I will agree that the staff is friendly. The balloon festival was starting, so there were no discounts.

We were looking for a park in Phoenix to visit Talliesen West in Scottsdale, and were disappointed in the parks available in those areas. We came across Eagle View by chance. This park is run by an Indian tribe and is associated with a hotel and casino about 1/4 mile away. Access is great. Interior roads are all paved and very wide. Sites are paved, long, and wide. All are back in sites, but access to each is easy. No shade, but this is the desert. The pads are wide, and there is a gravel and landscaped area between the sites. There is desert landscaping that is very well maintained. The entire park is spotless. It is well lit at night and has a roving security guard. There is a nice (but shallow) pool and a hot tub, and a nice club house with pool table. It offers a continental breakfast. Lots of places to walk a dog and there is a medium sized off leash area. Utilities are very good as is the cable. I would not say this is a park for kids (only saw one in 5 days); as there is no playground, etc. This is near a casino so it draws an older/adult crowd. It is off the road so it is very quiet. There is a service station with diesel on the entrance road. This place is surrounded by open range, and you will see signs of wild horses, etc. Great views of mountains. We understand that in the winter you have to make reservations well in advance. Very helpful staff. We have determined that if you want to visit the east side of Phoenix / Scottsdale area, this is the best place to stay.

The park is a little of the highway, but the directions are good. Staff was friendly but disorganized. Interior roads and sites are dirt. Dog run was gravel. There are small trees and a nice hedge along the road. Sites are level but a little tight. There is a storage area that you can walk your dog in. The entire park is very, very dusty. The dust covers the picnic tables, benches, and everything else. There are quite a few long (very long) term residents on the south side of the park (some have fenced in their sites). Cable was pretty good. WiFi was pretty good. This place is good for an overnight stop when going from Phoenix to Las Vegas.

Date of Stay:

The directions in the directories are okay. Access into the park is good. Interior roads are narrow but paved (and with speed bumps). Sites are paved and level, but they are short and very narrow. The pull thru sites are shaded, but they appear to be seasonal or long term campers. The park is very clean and neat. They even want you to wash your vehicles to keep the appearance up. This park is only 1/2 block from Route 9, but the noise is blocked by the back of the stores in the adjacent shopping center. Staff was curt. Quite frankly, this appears to be the Sun City of RV parks - folks roost here in Gods anteroom. One of the biggest issues is the fact there are no places to walk a dog -- as in nowhere. We even had to sign a long small print dog agreement as to liability, cost of not picking up poop, etc. The office says you can walk your dog anywhere in the park, but some owners have signs up that say "no dogs". If you have a fish or a cat as a pet, you may be okay, but if you have a dog or two, you are not going to be happy. This is the best campground among many poor choices in the area. Others who rated this a 10 have no dogs, no kids, and are waiting to be "called".

Since this place is in the middle of nowhere, we were somewhat apprehensive to stop here. We wasted a good worry. Access is good. Interior roads are gravel as are the sites. Sites are long and level. Staff (owners) are great. We could get 50 channels just on our antenna. Wi-Fi was very good. Got a better AT&T signal than at home. There is a truck stop just north of the park. Smallish dog run, but the park is adjacent to lots of ATV trails where you can walk your dogs for miles. Nice grass by the sites. The owners are working hard to make this a really nice place to come and stay for a few days and use an ATV or hike. You can see I-15 in the distance, but you can't hear it. We were really surprised and impressed. Place is neat and clean. Great place to stay en route to the southern Utah national parks.
