The good; Very clean, well maintained fairly quiet some nice views and friendly people. Every site is paved with with parking beside your rig. Water pressure was a tad low at 30 PSI, power was solid never got an error code. The not so good; While clean and paved the park has an almost sterile feel to it. Sites are very narrow and our 40' 5th wheel barely fit lengthwise and some longer 43-45' rigs barely and I do mean barely fit. The site all slope downward some more than others and due to the length of our rig we used every foot of hose and elevated it to get a good drain. Not a big deal but if you have a long rig with a mid-point drain, you'll need to elevate the hose and plan on a 25' run give or take. The bad; This place is NOT pet friendly in any way, shape or form. Yes you can have pets and there but, there is no pet run (other than a poop pit) and the tar would be murder on there feet. There is a very large dog park a couple of miles away though. The rate reflects a Good Sam discount. $238.00 / 7 days. We would stay again.

Great place for an overnight stop. Manager escorted us to our site and put us in one that was easy to get out of the next day. Free Wi-Fi, power was solid. Did not use water, so no idea on pressure. We'll stay again.

Rate is based on monthly. WOW! This is one nice park! Clean, neat, friendly, free cable, Wi-Fi and ice. When we first arrived, I had an open ground error on my EMS. Within 1/2 hr the CB and plug were changed and we were good to go. Grass is green, cut and trimmed every week. There is just nothing negative to say.

This park has fell on some very hard times. We've stayed here many times in the last three years and is our "home" park. The place is just run down. No effort to rake or grade sites, no effort toward any landscaping and the area around the club house is a mess. The new reservation system is confusing and if you are planning to reserve for three months, you pay for the first month and $100.00 for each of the next two months. Used to be, you came home, stayed as long as you wanted, squared up at the end of each month and left when you pleased. Not now, you have to plan your stay.. so much for being "home". We'll stay here again, but for now, we are in New Caney Tx.

Pet friendly? NO! If you have dogs you cannot walk them! You have to drive down by the dumpsters in a 100' x 50' grassy area so they get no exercise. You need a $10.00 (refundable) access key to get in and out of the park. Problem was, it wasn't mentioned at check in. Would've been nice to know before we left for lunch and had to wave down someone to get back in. This also makes your departure linked to the office hours if you want your $10.00 back. Gated security in a rural area? Sites are gravel and not totally level; not bad but could use some dragging. Grounds are well kept, and it is a very nice park in that sense. Water pressure is just under 40 psi. Power is solid, but our 50 amp receptacle was cracked. EMS didn't go off line so it was still functional. Hook ups are nicely positioned, and our site was pretty large (#151). The WiFi was a no show; so slow it was useless. We would stay here again if they allow dog walking and get rid of the gates.

This FamCamp is an embarrassment to the AF and the issues need to be addressed ASAP. Sites need leveling and graveled. The power needs to be upgraded desperately as does the sewer. The 30 amp is very old and there is no 50 amp. The sewer connections are very low, some beneath grade, and they are at the very rear of the site. The roads are a mess, potholed, mud, and very little gravel. There are puddles that form long enough for the mosquitoes to hatch. The solution - Scrape a little trench across the road. The managers are very nice people but do not seem to have the motivation to make improvements. Another major issue is the number of homesteaders here. Some rigs have been here long enough that leveling blocks are sunken in. The laundry is $2.50 a load and the machines are old. The most redeeming quality of this park is it's cost and location. You're close to DC and the Metro is only a few minutes away.

Owners are good folk and it is a very family friendly park. Although probably 50% of the sites are taken by long term residents, all of them were friendly and outgoing. The small general store is pretty well stocked and there is actually a beauty shop! They sell Hershey ice cream and it's a popular hot spot for the locals. (the ice cream is great btw). Although we had some very heavy rain, the gravel is thick enough that there were only a few mud holes. Other reviews noted that the water is very high in iron and sulfur, so we filled the fresh water tank before we arrived. The sites can be tight for long rigs. We were able to get our 40' into a spot though. The Wi-Fi signal is iffy and drops frequently so we used our Verizon connection. It's hard to say negative things about this place. Yes, it needs work. Yes, the water is terrible. The sites can be tight, but it is a very friendly park and that counts for a lot.

The pads are the most level I've seen in ten years. Water pressure is not high enough, about 35 psi. Electric was solid and L1-L2 voltage was very close to each other. Plug was in good shape. Cable is solid but, only a couple of HD channels. The owner is polite enough, but difficult to engage in conversation. The other comments about noise are correct. Like most, we've stayed in a lot of parks near freeways, railroads and even under the approach end of an air base. But, for some reason the freeway noise is LOUD! Probably due to heavy truck traffic 24 / 7. Knew it going in so you cannot knock it. The pet walk is small and clean, but watch your dogs closely as the bushes near it are prime rattler areas. A lot of semi permanent residents, but all of them were kept up and very neat. We'd stay again anytime we're in the area.

There are so many RV parks that throw around the "resort" name and in our experience not many are even close to what we think is resort. In our opinion, this place is a resort. Well laid out, level concrete pads, smooth roads, superb landscaping, free breakfast, nice looking pool and the laundry is excellent. The staff is friendly and efficient and check in was a breeze. We rarely use reservations but in this case, it's a good idea because this place is constantly at least 80% full, They have your reservation at the counter along with the WiFi codes and a motel style entry card for the pool, laundry, etc. There are two things that knocked the rating down from a 9-10 rating. First, the voltage is very high on the L2 side of the 50 amp connection, L1 was at 113-122 while L2 floated at 126-133. High enough that my EMS disconnected L2. Second, the water pressure is very low, so much so we use the pump to get enough pressure for a shower. Fix those two things and you have a 10 imho.

Nice park and a great time to be here with the cooler weather and the changing leaves. The sites are not level and need to be dragged and gravel covered again. Water pressure good at right at 60 PSI, so use a regulator. Power was solid. Easy to get locals via antenna and sat shots are easy. Nice pet walk, some really nice trails to walk, lots of grass and the grounds are well tended. Small creek runs at the end of the parks and overall, a great place to just wander around. One sad note is that like Rainbows End, there are no social activities except a small social hour and Sunday night Ice cream social.

Date of Stay:

We been SKP's for several years and visited the home park often. Rainbows end has been going downhill since we began coming here. Site are no longer maintained well. They haven't dragged them or even attempted to level or add enough gravel to keep you above the mud since at least 2011. The power is no longer solid and the water pressure varies far to much. The showers and restrooms were presentable but no longer as clean as in the past. There were activities every day including a social hour. The only ones attending the social hour are the residents and a few members. No potluck, no Wednesday lunch but, the ice cream social is still going but again, only the residents and a few members attend. This is supposed to be the "Crown Jewell" of the club with tours etc. Were we considering joining now, we might of considered going another route. I discussed these issues with both residents, former and current volunteer / work campers and they all point to the current "directors" of the park side of the club. It's a shame, a great club being run into the ground by poor management

10 bucks gets you a site with full hook ups and free Wi-Fi really? Yes. You pay $10, select a site and get free (pretty fast) Wi-Fi, power, good water and sewer. Our site was spot on left to right. The roads are not paved and there are a lot of work campers. Park was very quiet and only an occasional train going by. Basic, no frills, great place to stay when passing through. Will definitely stay again.

There is just nothing negative to say! What a hidden gem. It would be nice to this park listed or linked to Little Rock as it doesn't show up very easily. Staff is friendly, WiFi is fast and free, power is solid, our site was very level left to right. Beautiful view of the river and downtown Little Rock. The is a museum with the USS Razorback submarine and a lot of artifacts. Sub tour was great. The Clinton library is a walk across a bridge. Easy access from I-30, IF you use the physical address and NOT the GPS database. This is a city owned park and runs very smoothly. We will stop anytime we travel through the area.

A no frills park for sure. Great, friendly managers. Site was tolerably level and power was solid and water pressure adjusted out to 50 psi. Nice to have decent pressure. Some noise from I-20 and the sweet music of C130's and Bones (B1's) flying patterns into Dyess AFB just South of the park. It is a fair price for what you get. Some reviewers seem to think $25.00 should get you a resort with valet parking. I loved the sound of freedom flying by, and if you don't want noise of any type don't stay.

There is a saying that KOA really means "Keep On A going." If you have any real choice do so. Unfortunately if you are tired and need to stop and you are in Limon, KOA is the only choice. Site is level, power is good and water pressure is low at 30 psi. The real issue is the lack of grounds maintenance. The pool is empty and looks to have been for awhile. The grass is either dead or dying and weeds galore. Pet walk? NOT. Frankly, the manager was not overly friendly and smelled like old cigarettes. He took the money, handed us a sheet with the spot marked and headed back to his trailer. It is just one of those places that has no curb appeal and even less effort to make your stay a good experience. I would have gone with a lower rating but since the sites level and the utilities are good. I don't care if we have to park at the Flying-J down the road, we will NOT stay here again.
