We arrived on a Sunday, which is the owner or mgr's day off. We picked a site and parked ourselves on the front row next to the frontage road and freeway. The traffic noise was noticeable, but not as bad as the u-turn was to get our 40' rig back onto the frontage road and on to the freeway. We had to ask neighbors to get the WiFi code which was fast and good. We didn't use any of the facilities. Most of the sites appeared to be filled with worker bees - as are most parks in Texas right now. It was fairly clean. We probably wouldn't stay here again.

     

I-35 RV Park

Waco, Texas

Date of Stay:

We were on a "forced march" cross country from Texas to Idaho and just chose RV parks randomly. This one was interesting. Unfortunately, I-35 is under construction in the neighborhood. It took us a 5 mile detour to get in, and another to get out. But it worked! The front desk people were nice (helps a review anytime!) The WiFi finally worked. We finally figured it out that too many guests must have been watching movies! Our DirecTv worked. The breakfast was great. The site was long and level. We'd stay here again after the construction is done.

As many prior reviews state, this is not a resort. Some of the upper level sites are personally owned and rented by park management. The upper level is OK - fairly nice sites with some landscaping and concrete pads. The lower levels are only accessible down a narrow, steep, muddy, gravel road, at least in spring. The sites are narrow back-ins with huge boulders to make sure you don't encroach. There is not an easy way to turn in order to back a big rig into the full hookup sites on the lower level. The front desk person apparently only works when convenient - we waited an hour and a half for her to show up after her 3 hour lunch break (11-2) to discuss our concerns. She grudgingly allowed us to park in a pull-through site - because we were already in it. Our Beaver motorhome is more than 10 yrs old and not eligible to park up top without inspection. Had she not agreed, we would have left and disputed the credit card charge, as we could not have parked below in the mud. We will not stop here again! With some capital improvements this could be a terrific park in a terrific location.

Great little park! No frills. No extras. I became lost finding it - Turn south off hwy 6 and go past the golf course entry, and then past the city park entry. Next driveway is the RV park. DirecTv works. 3 bars on Verizon. We'll definitely stay here again.

We chose the park because of friendly prior reviews. The front desk couple were terrific! That always makes for a better review. The park is old and squished together. Our 40' rig fit in with the toad attached. WiFi was good, but intermittent. Nice reasonable laundry. Easy in and out. The price can't be beat. We paid $1 extra per night for 50 amp. We'd stay here again.

We wandered in here accidentally, cause I couldn't find the other park I was looking for. The front desk people were awesome! Isn't it amazing how much better a review is when the people are nice? The park needs a lot of work! Roads graded, sites leveled, some gravel base to cut the dust. It had a pull-through site with 50 amp service and great WiF for us. The price wasn't bad. The park appears to be under construction - the final map looks great. Most sites are workers living in their rigs, which was the idea for the park. I'd probably stay here again.

We stayed for two weeks while meeting up with family for a wedding. It is close to the airport, close to shopping and restaurants, and was highly convenient for the family gatherings. The park has level concrete sites. There is a little grass. The lake is okay. The clubhouse has a small exercise area, rocking chairs, and nice fire pits. The front desk people were very nice! (Funny how that influences my ratings!!) There is a security gate, which we liked. The train noise was a given - what RV park doesn't have it? The majority of the residents appeared to be worker bees, which is okay with us. The park was kept clean. We'd definitely stay here again.

I agree with all of the above! Didn't expect anything - we were just traveling thru to Boise and stopped for the night. Very nice people, great spots, we had a good dinner in their little cafe. They'll definitely see us again. Our satellite dishes worked - there are trees, but lots of open sites at the back.

This is our kind of campground. No muss; no fuss; no amenities. Long level sites, full hook-ups or not (at a reduced fee); good open satellite dish coverage; quiet neighbors; few children seen or heard. There are a lot of permanent residents, but the park is clean and neat. It's near Fort Caspar and the fairgrounds and restaurants are close. I imagine in late summer the mosquitoes would be really annoying. The campground in is a bend of the North Platte River, but has several standing ponds. The front desk people were terrific. Finding the campground was interesting, but our GPS led us there eventually. We'd definitely stay here again.

We ordinarily avoid KOA. Most of them weren't built for big-rigs, but this one looked good on paper and was in the right location. It was very nice: excellent front desk guy; nice sites; some open, some shaded (our satellite dishes worked); clean and well-kept grounds. This campground caters to all sizes and types of RVs as well as tents and Kamper Kabins. We'd stay here again, even though it was a little pricey. But that's the other reason we avoid KOA.

We were looking for a place near West Point. This is a 45 minute drive to the west. We parked on top of the hill with great visibility for satellite dishes. (I asked for it when I called.) We hadn't been here before, but I found a number of forums where people recommended it as close to NYC and West Point. The people were very nice! They put in a new road this year to get to the top parking area that eliminates the old 180 degree turn. The office/store is being remodeled. We didn't use any of the facilities. The swimming pool appeared to be open and used. One large area of the park is obviously 'worker bees' in trailers, but it is kept fairly clean. I was told they never completely sell out, so it's a good last minute place to stop. We got a 'buy 6 nights & get one free'. It is a little off the beaten track, but we'd stay here again.

We stayed here with a rolling rally. It is a fabulous park-like setting with level gravel sites. Many of the sites are open so satellite dishes work. The little clubhouse in the middle of the huge grassy field was great for our meetings. The staff was friendly and helpful. There is low water pressure. It is a few miles out of town but we were looking for a quiet rest. We'd definitely come back.

This isn't really an "RV Park." It is spots behind the Crossroads Arena with some power and water pedestals. It apparently was damaged badly in a flood (a year ago???) and is waiting for federal money to repair. The group we were with was not provided any of this info. The guys rewired some of the plugs so our 15 big-rig units all had power: some 50 amp, some 30, some 20. One unit got stuck coming in and had to be towed. The sites are not level nor marked at all: right now. It has the potential for being a great overnight area. On top of the above deficiencies, we arrived the afternoon before the Great Tornado Attack of 2011. We had to seek shelter 3 times in the next 16 hours.

Date of Stay:

We stopped just overnight but would have stayed longer. Clean, well laid out (well, except for the tight U-turn to get out). The sites are angled for easy parking and roads are paved, with concrete pads. The rivers and ponds are great, as was the grass - we had just come from Arizona/NM/West Texas. It's west of town about 10 miles and fairly isolated, but if you have food in the freezer, that's not a problem. The staff was friendly and professional. The park is huge - we walked much of it. Great place for a rally or an overnight. We were in the front area with no trees, which is our choice because of two satellite dishes. We'd stay again!

Rate reflects Escapees. Owners are nice: said they recently bought it but have owned others. Many spaces obviously were long-term residents: normal in this area. Landscaping work is ongoing; the dirt interior roads in dry West Texas were as usual. The spaces are Very Narrow. The 4-slide guy had to move or touch the neighbor; only 7 have 50 amp. Access from I-20 was easy. This is not an RV Resort, but we'd stay here again for an overnight.
