One of the nicest parks we've ever visited, with friendly, helpful owners. Sites are gravel, mostly level, and well maintained, with nice picnic tables at each site. Sites are angled to provide privacy, and they are plenty long enough for our 38' RV to stay hitched up. The best part is they have a community garden and an apple tree. Guests are invited to pick some produce. The only reason I gave this park 9 stars instead of 10 is the lack of amenities like pool and spa. We would definitely come back anytime we are in the area.

This park is everything people have said about it. It's very clean and well kept. Sites are large and grassy. Most sites are gravel, but very level. Pull-thrus long enough for our truck and 38' RV. Good water pressure, plenty of electricity. Adjacent to the Snake River and the city riverfront park, with well paved, smooth walking/jogging/biking/skateboarding path, benches with interesting vistas. Multiple species of trees marked. Everything looks new, although the RV park has been here since 2006.

Nicely landscaped entry and public areas, security gate at night. Many pull through sites, mostly grass, some with patios. No picnic tables. Good power. Friendly staff. Most sites unshaded, which is good for satellite TV. Daily trash pick-up. Great dog run with nice dog wash facility. We had plenty of space because few sites occupied this time of year, but when the park is nearer full, sites would be tight (long, but narrow).

Escapees park, but others also welcome. Large sites, lots of live oak trees, but branches trimmed so no low overhangs. Some sites have 50 amp. The first one we tried the 50 amp did not work, so always a good idea to check if this is important to you. Some sites good for satellite, but the tradeoff is that they're mainly unshaded. A cypress swamp in the rear of the property harbors mosquitoes, but county sprays, so not too bad. Very quiet in the summer. Facilities older, but very friendly staff. Convenient to I-75.

Basically a gravel parking lot, but owners are working to upgrade it. Very well maintained. Good wide crushed gravel roads, long level pull thrus. Nice decor in pool area and office. Extremely friendly helpful staff. Good free WiFi. Large dog park with gazebo for owners to relax in the shade while dogs play. Nice clean laundry. We extended our one night stay to two nights. Most overnight sites are pull thrus in front near the road. We asked for something quieter and were put in a site more toward the rear. Very accommodating.

This is a beautiful park. The hosts are very friendly and helpful. 2/3 of the sites are reservable, and 1/3 are walk up only. The A loop has 50 amp electricity (in most sites), but it also has an extremely tight cul-de-sac turnaround with a tree in the middle--not recommended for fifth wheels longer than 32'. The B loop has 30 amp electricity (in most sites) and has three pull-throughs. Some of the B loop sites will accommodate big rigs. However, the B loop is lower ground and floods first when the water rises.

Very basic park. All pull throughs on gravel. Each site has two small trees. Sites 21-25 have 50 amp. Only two sites were in use when we were there. RV park is behind the Produce Barn, which is behind the convenience store/service station. Only restrooms are in store. Dump is available, but campers pay the same fee as the public: $5. To find on map systems, search for "All American Food" in Fruitland. This park is right off I-84 and is fine for an overnight, but we probably wouldn't stay much longer.

Great park for birdwatching, rafting, fishing, hiking, kicking back, and getting away from it all. Spectacular scenery. Seven day limit. Verizon signal weak and sometimes unreliable. No facilities except vault toilets and dumpsters. Bring your own water. Small blacktop boat ramp. Day use picnic sites. Sites and roads are good level blacktop with picnic tables (all wheelchair accessible) and fire rings. Many are suitable for big rigs. Some partially shaded, some in full sun. A few pull-throughs, several tent sites. On site host. Price reflects senior access pass rate.

We've stayed in this park overnight several times. It's very close to the big Valero refinery and the highway, so not a quiet place. Most of the sites are occupied by long term oil field workers. Definitely call in advance. 361-786-4324 is the host couple phone. (361) 786-2528 is the phone number of the City of Three Rivers, and if the host phone doesn't answer, they may be able to supply an updated number. Pleasant place, nice trees, river, birdwatching park across the street accessible via underpass is good for walking. The park was full, so we asked and were allowed to dry camp for free, but this is at the discretion of the hosts.

We enjoyed this park. It has large sites with gravel pads and patios. Picnic tables and fire rings. Some grills. Very clean and well kept. Rate is senior access and includes reservation fee ($65 for 5 nights). The one downside to this park is that the day use areas are mixed in with the campground, so it can be noisy on the weekends. We were in B-31, directly on the river. B sites are farthest from day use, and riverfront sites are especially nice. Most sites are ok for satellite. Good Verizon signal for phone and Internet modem. Recreation.gov does not indicate on their map the very large marina, which is adjacent to the A loop. Some A loop sites look on the map and are indicated on the website as "shoreline," but the river cannot be seen because it's behind the marina.

Absolutely beautiful setting, spacious grassy areas. It really does look like a golf course! Lovely lake. Friendly people. Sites with sewer are fairly close together. Non-sewer sites are very large, and some are even huge. We camped in site 8, on the water, and site 22, a bit farther from the lake, but still a waterfront site. We actually didn't see any bad sites. Good hiking on the Bearwaller Trail along a bluff above the lake. Good Verizon signal for both phone and Internet modem.

Great view of the Mississippi River. Sites from 12-20 are located a bit farther south and are on higher ground (important because the lower numbered sites are especially likely to flood). Water is shared by 2-3 sites. Concrete pads are short, but the large well packed gravel area by the upper sites can accommodate big rigs. Portable restrooms only (we didn't use them). Electric is ONLY 50 amp or 20 amp (no 30 amp, so rigs needing 30 would require a 50 to 30 adapter). Pay at City Hall in town (as advised on sign at park). Dump located behind 218 Main St. is easily accessible. This is a small, friendly town. No reservations, but you may want to call the phone number, which is for the town hall, to ask about flooding. The "book now" link on the city's webpage should not be used (http://www.rubbertree.com.au/warsaw/lodging.htm). Advised that reservations for camping are no longer made through this site.

The location on Lake Eufala is great. We stayed in the east section. This is a former COE park, so lots of trees, wildflowers, birds, bunnies, space. Staff friendly and helpful. We definitely enjoyed out stay. Some issues: lakefront sites are basically blacktop parking; noise from highway and railroad; restrooms are woefully inadequate: old, not well maintained (door missing from a stall in the women's), far away from the lakefront sites, not nearly enough for the number of campsites. This would not be a problem for self contained units (like ours). Also, our site has ONLY 50 amp electric outlet and utilities are on the wrong side. Any rig with only 30 amp electric would need a 50 to 30 adapter to use these sites (there are sites elsewhere with 30 amp service). Although the park is family friendly, the only playground we saw was in a tenting area. This would be a great place for boaters and anglers.

We love this campground. The sites are long, level, paved, well laid out, with lake views and lots of trees, mainly pines. Picnic tables are aluminum and on concrete patios. Nice fire rings/grates. Peaceful. Most sites would not have good satellite reception because of the trees (but 110 and 130 both worked for us). Verizon data service is slow and sometimes spotty, but acceptable. All the sites now have 30/50 amp electric. We think this campground is much nicer than the nearby Buckhorn. Rate reflects senior discount. Electric and water RV sites in area 2 (201-224) are first come/first served (although this is not mentioned on the Recreation.gov website).

Wonderful park, great hosts. We used this as a base to visit Taos, Los Alamos, Bandelier National Monument, and Santa Fe as well as the nearby Ghost Ranch where Georgia O'Keeffe painted, and other local attractions. The scenery is breathtaking. The campground is very peaceful, partly because it's on a bluff overlooking the lake, so you can see but mostly not hear the boats. Needs more electric sites than the current 15. We had to move three times in the two weeks we were there to piece together reservations. Reserve early. Don't expect to find any walk up electric sites available most of the time in this beautiful spot!
