A good place to overnight. Roads are paved; sites are long, level, gravel. No need to unhook. Escort to your site, and the breakers are checked for you to be sure the last camper turned them off before you plug in. Indoor pool looked very nice, but we did not use because of big storm that blew in. No cable but good antenna TV. We were told that there is only Wi fi at office, but we were in the Class A section right by the office and were able to log right on, using code they gave us. Trash dumpsters conveniently located. Coffee and doughnuts every morning in office. Very friendly staff. Would definitely stay here again.

Quaint little park at the end of a dirt road--very quiet, no road noises. Sites are long, level, gravel back in. Just a few 50 amp sites, which are mostly taken. Good wi fi, no TV at all. Excellent restrooms, laundry, community room with large lending library, and DVD lending library in office. Some shade. Owners are super. When my husband developed breathing problems after one night, our money was quickly refunded for the rest of our stay. Not many parks will do that! Would love to come back but probably can't because of the altitude.

This is the best park in the Royal Gorge area. New owner has beautifully landscaped the park; even though it's on a hill, the gravel sites are level. The owners live on site and are RVers, so they are aware of what RV owners want in a campground. Propane available. Wi fi pretty good most of the time; no TV at all. Small lending library. Bathrooms need some work, but new bathrooms and showers are apparently on the schedule for next year. We started out in a premium pull through but had to move to a back in in order to stay longer. We were expertly guided into our sites both times. There is almost no shade, and it is very hot in the day. Trees have been planted, but that's going to take some time. It is difficult to use an awning, because there is no place to anchor it, since sites have a large concrete patio beside the gravel site. Our site got the full brunt of the sun all day long, making the patio really unusable. Staff was very friendly and were around all the time. All utilities were great. Campfires are allowed; each site has a fire pit. Would definitely stay here again if in the area.

We stayed here twice, going and coming on our trip to Colorado. A good place to overnight. Almost no shade except in the tent area. Staff was friendly and helpful. Very few 50 amp sites, but we made it fine with 30 amps, since we really didn't need that 2nd air conditioner for the evening. There are not a lot of full hookup sites, so call early for a reservation. Wi fi was ok, good cable, which thrilled us after 3 weeks in Colorado with no TV at all. Sites are flat and level gravel: somewhat dusty.

This is a great campground. We got the only site available, and it turned out to be a gem. Back-in, shaded, level, with great wi fi and cable reception, but I understand that your reception on both these depends on where you are located. Staff expertly backed us in. Everything was all gravel. Small workout room with 2 ellipticals and 1 treadmill, but a new, larger facility will be open next year. Many people live here full time or most of the summer, so overnight spaces are harder to get. Ice cream social on Saturday night and breakfast waffle bar with all the trimmings on Sunday morning. Park is out in the country, and there are gravel trucks going back and forth on the road to a nearby quarry, which does stir up some dust, but the trucks do stop at night. Park is about equal distance between Colorado Springs and Canon City--some 20 miles to both. Looks like they are building a new bathhouse. Laundry spacious and nice. No pool but the map showed a hot tub, which we did not see. Utilities all good. This is a great place to kick back and relax. We would love to come back.

The new owners have done amazing things with this park. Sites are gravel, pull throughs and back ins. Everything is immaculately clean with a lovely pool, good lending library, good wi fi. There is no TV. The park is right on U. S. 50 so there is some road noise. Since wind in Colorado is hard on awnings, the owner has come up with a unique fix. He has placed two big rocks at each site and has drilled into the rock to attach a hasp. When each camper sets up, the owner comes and moves the rocks to fit your awning, and you have a place to anchor your awning safely. Since there is limited shade, this was wonderful. The owners live on site and come around frequently to check on their campers. Unfortunately, our stay was marred by power problems. Shortly after setting up, we noticed our air conditioner was surging. After checking our meter, we found we were reading 130 and over. The owner quickly came and started checking others around us, which were empty sites. Those sites too were experiencing power surges. The power company came and found a burned wire overhead, but that didn't cure our problem. At times our meter would read less than 110. Since it was a week end, nothing could be done, so we spent two days without air, which was fine at night, but hot in the day. We were thankful for the awning fix that we had. Other than the power problems, which seemed to be only in the 50 amp row, it was a great park. The owner came by frequently to be sure we were ok, and we appreciated that.

Location, location, location--That's what makes this park so popular. We have stayed here a number of times. This time we had to take a premium river site--all that was available. It was a very nice site but a little pricey. At least half of the park is occupied by people who spend the summer there and reserve their sites a year ahead. Many sites have shade. Sites on the upper level are right on the road, and it is very noisy. Wi fi is better than it used to be, but still goes out frequently. It was off a whole day this time. No TV at all; Verizon doesn't work well at all. The community room has been painted and fixed up and looks nice, but the roads into and out of the park are full of ruts and have been for years. The laundry is pretty much unusable. Long term campers go to town to do laundry. After I spent several dollars trying to dry clothes, I took them to town. Supposedly the park is getting a new sewer system to eliminate the odor in the bathrooms and laundry, but we didn't see anyone working on it. Despite all the negatives, we do enjoy the park and plan to come back. The owner is very nice, as was all the staff. Our utilities worked well, and our site was spacious. Unless you are in one of 3 premium sites, the river sites are very crowded and tend to be a bit short for big rigs. Sites are back in; I believe there is one pull through. We enjoyed our stay.

This has always been our park of choice in Fredricksburg, but we are thinking we may change our minds. Park is very nice, immaculately groomed and cared for. Showers, bathrooms, laundry all excellent, as is the lending library. Sites are long and level and are crushed gravel. No pool, hot tub, or exercise facility. Trash not picked up; you have to carry it to the dumpster at the exit gate, which is not a big deal, until you get ready to pull out with your rig. Maintenance people all around to help out. The crushed gravel stuck to our shoes, and we were constantly tracking little rocks into the coach. Wi fi was poor; we were constantly being kicked off, and at times we could not even get our e mail. Cable was nonexistent for us, as we have older TVs with converter boxes, which are supposed to convert the digital signal to our analog, but it doesn't work that way. In a 3 week trip, staying at 4 other parks, we had trouble only at this park. We have encountered this in the past at KOAs; the parks want to blame the cable company. We saw the Time Warner office in town, so we drove over to it to ask what we could do; they told us that this was the plan the park selected, and we were stuck. I went to the laundry at night to see a favorite show, but the TV was high on the wall, and there was no remote anywhere in sight. That said, we still had a good time and were blessed to have a huge shade tree on the west side of our coach.

We have been coming here once a year just about since the park opened. A lovely park with excellent facilities, especially for people with boats, as there is ample boat parking, private boat launch, and marina with boat slips. There is no pool, hot tub, or exercise facility, and I have never seen anyone swimming in the lake, but it is beautiful. Wi fi and cable were very good. Trash picked up at site. Sites are long and level, but not much shade with grass between each site. Country quiet with no planes or trains, but just minutes from town. Everything is immaculate. Very small lending library. Very popular with rallies, making it hard to get in on weekends, so reserve early.

We love this park! We have stayed here 5 or 6 times in the past and have never been disappointed. It is truly a 10 10 10. We stayed 9 times this time, staying over due to big rains. It was very crowded when we arrived due to the winter Texas who had not left yet, and we were given a choice of a back in site near the maintenance shed or one of the lovely drive in motorhome sites, which we have had before and love them. I do not understand a previous comment about electricity not being included. Our fee of $44 included everything. Everything is paved, and sites are spacious, but many have no shade. Lovely exercise room overlooking the creek, great wi fi and cable, two pools and two hot tubs, one each for adults only. It does fill up and you need to make your reservation early, especially for week ends until mid April when the long term residents start to leave. Lovely barn for socializing, such as a Saturday morning breakfast; great lending library and of course excellent bathrooms and showers. This is our park of choice for the hill country.

Great little park. Passport America rate was $15 Cash, which we could use for two nights; other nights were $30. Sites and roads are dirt but in good condition. Very good wi fi and cable; nice exercise facilities. Good lending library and laundry. When I made the reservation, the young lady offered us a site on the first row, facing the river, but she did tell me that these sites had a slight slope, so we opted for the back row which was very level. We didn't have the river to view, but we had a nice green belt with many trees behind us. Everything immaculate. Sites have very little shade, however.

Lovely park with many amenities. Unfortunately our stay in January was cold and rainy, so we didn't get to enjoy the park to the fullest. We took a waterfront pull in site; gorgeous sunsets, but I failed to figure in the terrible glare of the sun all afternoon through the front windows of our motorhome; we had to keep our curtains closed until evening. Don't recommend site 74 unless you are a Class C or short MH; to exit the site you must back up a hill until your hitch is dragging the concrete; marks already there from others. Waterfront sites are a bit short; care must be taken to get in just right because you have to park beside your RV and slides may get in the way of getting out of your car. Campsites are almost totally dark at night; we felt it was dangerous; no lights on hook ups so night arrival could be difficult. We were told that a lady had fallen at night and broken her wrist; as she stepped off into the reeds, she was bitten by a snake and had to be rushed to the hospital. Another issue for us is our older TV which has to have a converter box. Management tells you it is Sudden Link's fault, but we have spoken about this with numerous campground managers, who have told us that the digital switchover required them to upgrade their equipment, which was very expensive, but they did it. Apparently KOA doesn't do this. We traveled all around NM, Colorado, AR, LA, MS this summer and had no trouble hooking up to their TV system. Only at KOAs have we had a problem.

Good Sam needs to re evaluate this park. No way can it be a 10 10 10. The interior roads are full of huge potholes; this didn't happen overnight. We saw a sign mentioning road work but saw no signs of any work. Concrete pads are good, but asphalt aprons are breaking up. The rate is raised for First Monday week ends; one of the offsets of this is supposed to be a free barbecue dinner, but this was cancelled due to it being a New Year's holiday. Cable was fuzzy and poor; we have had that problem on other visits. When I stepped outside, I saw the almost every other RV had an antenna up; when we did that, we got about 30 channels with great reception. Unfortunately, the power went out at about 2:00 in the p.m. It was freezing cold; we turned on our generator; don't know what people without one did. Oncor had to come to fix it; one man worked for hours. Finally power back on at 10:30 that night. I have called 4 times to ask if there will be any compensation for 8 hours without power. Each time it's "I"ll have to talk to management." Management was supposed to decide last Tuesday; it's now Sunday, and I just got the same answer. Wi fi was not good either. This is a 10 10 10 resort???

We have stayed here before, and this is our park of choice in Wichita Falls. It is an older park with very long, level, shady grass sites. Office staff was extremely friendly and nice when I checked in. Yes, the pool is empty, as is the little pond. Previous reviewers may not have realized that Wichita Falls has been in a critical drought situation; in fact the city was in danger of running out of drinking water earlier in the summer. This may explain some of the problems that others have had. Wi fi is an open network; we just used it to check e mail. Cable was good. We think this is a good spot to overnight while on the road.

Very nice park. Everything worked well. Pool looked nice. Cable and wi fi were good. As always, when everyone gets on the internet, things bog down some. Roads and sites were level gravel. There had been some flooding previously, but the man who parked us said they had dumped 30 loads of gravel on the areas that flooded. However, the gravel was very loose and slid around when you drove or walked on it. Office staff super nice. Beautiful setting; some road noise if you were closer to the highway. Would definitely stay here again.
