Well kept park with large spaces, lovely fishing/swimming lake (lifeguard noon to 8 p.m. during summer), playground, playing fields, horseshoes and more. Large pavilions, plenty of room for groups. Many seasonal sites around the periphery, in the trees. Transient sites mostly in the center and open. Gated/secure. Clean laundry with newer machines, small store. Our rate based on weekly rate.

Although small, this park is very convenient to the interstate. It's next to a Holiday Inn Express. One row of sites is back-ins, and the second row is pull thrus. Utilities are excellent. We used the small laundromat ($1.50 for washers and dryers). There are two washers and four dryers. We didn't use the small pool, but it looked clean and well kept.

Camp host at Turkey Flat very helpful, comes by to collect fees. Senior discount not mentioned on the reservation site www.gocampok.com. Also, sites in this campground are described on that site as being "31-50" but all will accommodate our F450 and 38' fifth wheel (52' hitched) with lots of room leftover. Campground was completely upgraded four years ago. All sites are level, large, have composite picnic tables with wheelchair access, grill, fire ring, lantern hanger. All have trees on the patio side, but most have a clear view of the southern sky. We could have saved the $8 reservation fee and just showed up (but check availability online). Almost all the sites were marked "site available" when we arrived. The rate listed is for a non-sewer site with senior discount and does not include the reservation fee. No playground or hiking trails or lake views from Turkey Flat. Quiet, spacious, green, well maintained.

Small park out in the country. Rate reflects monthly rent of $325. Electricity is separate. Pluses: Some nice sites, mostly gravel. Nice little lake and creek. Very helpful park manager. Cons: Lots of road noise, especially in sites nearer the highway. Daily and weekly charges are much higher, and rigs over 36' pay an additional $5 a night. Some sites very small or just parking lot style. Only a few sites have concrete pads.

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.
