Good park that is almost great. The park has great bones and some great features but is lacking a few things that would make it great. The roads and sites are paved and level. Odd location of off-door patio - suited more for motorhomes than trailers. Grass needed mowing and watering since it was 100+. Pool was nice. Clubhouse was nice and offered free morning coffee, newspaper and bagged ice which were all nice touches. Bathrooms were private with showers and were nicely done. They did need a good cleaning - they weren't overly offensive but did need a little more regular attention. The park needed a playground and to up their daily upkeep and this park would be a 10!

Good stopover a few miles north of I-10 in the Lake Charles area. Paved roads and concrete site pads. Moderate space between neighbors. Bathrooms and showers were nice and clean. Great customer service. Park was only lacking cable tv and a pool.

OK state park close to New Orleans. Sites are large and paved. Steep grade from site pad to grass below at many sites. Cement pads for picnic tables at all sites. Some are at rear of site like ours. Very little shade. No sewer connections. Wi-Fi is slow. Bathrooms were neither clean nor nice. Playground was nice. Park is on opposite side of New Orleans from major attractions. We would look for another rv park closer to the East side of New Orleans with better facilities.

Good state park near beach along gulf shore. Drive to beach parking within campground or just a short drive down the road to the large state pier with snack bar, restrooms and shade. We had a nice lakefront site with large lot. Site pad was paved and had a large asphalt patio area with picnic table and grill. No shade to speak of at the majority of the sites. New and very nice bathrooms with showers in each camping circle. Neat restaurant on beachfront called The Hangout with good food, great atmosphere, live music nightly and lots of activities for the kids (giant sandbox, bubble machine, lawn games).

What a park! Beautiful park close to it all. We really enjoyed our stay at Topsail. Short drive to Destin with plenty of activities. The tram to the beach was nice and the beach was beautiful. We found that loading up the truck and driving just a few miles down the beach to Dune Allen Beach was better than taking the tram. We parked right at the boardwalk and schlepped our goods from there. We were without the required bikes and trailers to make the 7/10 mile trek to the beach from the campground and while the tram was nice, it was a little inconvenient when traveling with a two year old. The playground was closed. But the pool was nice. The bathrooms and showers were kept spotless. The sites are neatly maintained. This park is on our short list and we will be back!

Ok for a stopover. Pretty full on a Saturday night. Older park with poorly maintained roads, sites. Pool was ok. Playground was nice. Bathrooms were clean and had private shower rooms. I definitely did not get my 50 bucks worth out of this park.

We were dissatisfied with our stay at Twin Creek RV Resort. We were assigned a site in the dumpy part of the campground. We were assigned site 83. It's in the row that sits along the road frontage below the retaining wall. The campground itself is well manicured and well maintained. The sites are paved and all have a concrete patio. The sites in the main campground are well shaded and also have a bench at each site. The sites in dump row below the two cabin model trailers have no shade and are across the street from the campgrounds open dumpsters and garbage piles of tree limbs, bathroom remodel trash, old swings and misceleaneous equipment pieces like trailers and tractors. Before setting up camp, we returned to the office to ask to be moved to the main campground. We were rudely told that they were busy with other customers and that we would need to return in 15 minutes. No problem, we're happy to wait our turn but they insisted that we leave and come back later. So, after standing on the porch until 3 other camping parties checked in, we requested another site, but were told that none were available except another site in dumpyard row and a site right along the highway entrance where our toddler could make a run for it. We chose to move further up dumphouse row where we were at least closer to the pool and playground. As were setting up camp, we noticed the last camper had dumped about 5 packs of cigarttes into the fire pit. That left us with another warm fuzzy. We stayed for our three reserved nights. After spending a day in the NP, we returned to our site to find a note on our camper door. It read Site 81: do not park on grass and was signed by a worker. We were confused. We had to take a tight corner to move from site 83 to 81 and had backed the trailer off the pavement but had not left it or our vehicle in the grass at any time. The pool was great and even offered a 1' kiddie pool. The bath house was clean and well designed for the campers. I was impressed with the campground but was extremely dissatisfied with the customer service we received in regard to site assignment. We made numerous other trips into the office for ice, etc and were always treated courteously and the workers were very friendly. We would have had a much different experience had we been given a site in the main campground. Just a strange experience. The attention to detail that the campground showed in most of the campground should be showed in all of the campground and they should focus on providing good customer service even in times of stress. I'll be writing to the manager and hope to receive a reply.

What a view! This RV park is on my short list of favorites. The park is small but the facilites and amenities are great. Clean and private bathrooms. Adequate laundry facilities. Gravel roads and sites pads with concrete patios. Awesome picnic tables with back rests: more campgrounds should invest in these. We had an AWESOME view of the mountains and the French Broad River from our site. We really enjoyed waking up in the morning and watching the fog lift to reveal the mountains across the way and sitting by our campfire as the sun lit the clouds as it went down and the mountains disappeared each night. The staff was friendly and accommodating. Of course, you have to climb the mountain before you can look down from it and in this case, the road up was a little hairy but totally doable with our 35' 5th wheel. There were several other 5th wheels and some class A's at the top as well, but most were smaller class B's or pop-ups. Overall, we loved it and will definitely reserve another mountain view site if we return to Asheville.

RV Park is close to I-40 in a beautiful area. Park was well groomed and well laid out. Sites are typical rv park sites with concrete pads and patios and pretty close together but not offensive. Many sites are along the lake with water views. Nice bike trails and playground. Great pool with kiddie pool with mushroom cap waterfall. Park is operated by marina owners so excellent boating amenities with docks on site. We would recommend as both a stopover and a multi-day stay especially if traveling with a boat.

RV Park Campground is 11.4 miles south of the park entrance along I-40. Scenic park with nice playground, pavillion, swim beach. RV campground is on lake with few waterfront sites. Very quiet park. Bathhouse is clean and large. Sites are gravel and large. Nice firepit, grill and picnic table.

Great campground right on the lake. All sites in A loop are large, paved and well spaced. B loop is tents only. C and D loops are waterfront but are close together and would be loud. We prefer the A loop. Lake is beautiful. Marina on site offers boat rentals at competitive rates. We had a great day on the water on their ski deck boat. Not a bad drive to Hot Springs. Hot Springs NP Mountain Tower provided a great view of the area and worth the nominal fee. Hot Springs NP Bathhouse Row was a neat stroll and deserved more time than the afternoon that we allowed for it.

Campground was dificult to get to because recent flooding had closed main road to campground. Detour was via small alternative roads with tight corners and low branches. One campground loop was closed but all others were open. B Loop is waterfront and 50amp with several sites featuring decks overlooking the lake right at your patio door. All sites were heavily treed. Interior roads are a little tight for big rigs but workable. All sites were paved with concrete patio sites with picnic tables. Shower house was clean. Playground was just a set of swings. Reservations reccomended for big rigs or waterfront campsites. Overall impression was beautiful campground with great COE rate.

Zion Canyon Campgroud & RV Park offers a no frills campsite. We had a pullthrough on the end of a loop with a great view of the West canyon wall in morning light and a partial view of the East canyon wall in afternoon light. The park features paved roads with dirt sites. They are using all available space for campsites. This is the closest park to Zion NP with full hookups including cable. It is very convenient with the Springdale shuttle to Zion NP and then excellecnt park shuttles to get around Zion Canyon. I reccomend going around the Mt. Carmel tunnel with most trailers. The bathrooms are ok but do need more regular cleaning for amount of use especially with the large number of tenters/ weekenders. The lack of WiFi and a pool that is too small to share with the park and the adjoining hotel. The laundry facility is good and clean but expensive at $2 load wash and $2 load dry.

Trailer Village is part of a great National Park setup. It has a good location on the free shuttle bus stop. While it does have good hookups, the site itself was poor with rough gravel and pretty uneven terrain. However, you are inside Grand Canyon NP and very close to the canyon rim (.5mi walk or a 5 mintue shuttle ride).

Beaudry RV Resort is a near perfect park. They feature rock covered sites with a concrete patio, iron patio furniture, lime trees or other bushes for privacy. They also have a nice pool, ok showers, lots of extra facilities and a great offseason rate!
