This is right on Hwy 3 and good for one night stop. Lots of rules regarding recycling, garbage, dog walk area etc. Their website says they have satellite TV but have 1 or 2 channels (we could only get 1) free to air - bad reception at that. Sites are close together. About 6 kms to Castelgar for services. Wi-Fi was really good even though we were at the very back of the park. Leveling was a bit of a challenge because the sites are cut from forest. Hwy noise but not unbearable. Wouldn't want to stay here longer than a night or two.

Date of Stay:

Full hook-ups right in front of Skaha Lake, how good is that? Wi-Fi is at the office only. Sites are natural grass and sand with some tree roots to make leveling a bit of a challenge. Good 30amp and good water. Long hill down from the highway with narrow road. Right turn off of the highway from the south is NOT recommended as the entrance is too narrow for even a car to make it without backing up. Turn left from North is safer but still a bit tricky because of traffic volume. Pet friendly. Right on the KVR for walking or cycling. Great lake for boating (boat launch at the end of the campground). This park can be VERY crowded in peak season but was quiet in mid-Sept. 10kms from Pentiction south on Hwy 97.

Date of Stay:

Small park with easy access for big rigs. Nice owners, beautiful views of the valley. This is a working veggie farm. Good Wi-Fi. Short drive for groceries into Glenmore and about 20 minutes to downtown. Can't think of a downside to this park unless it is no washrooms and showers. Not an issue for us as we prefer those in our motorhome, but could be an issue for others. We will be back!

Date of Stay:

Great heated pool. Some sites face or back on bayou, river or ponds. No see ums (biting midges) were getting nasty, but they fog for them several times a week. Lots of activities at clubhouse. Many seasonal residents but NO park models and NO old rigs are allowed, so it has an upscale feel. Great Wi-Fi (really works about 95% of the time).Outside staff (guys) are really nice. Office staff (women) are a bit grouchy, there were some politics going on about seasonal rates going up and lots of people complaining, some people pulling out mad too. Great dog walking area. LOTS of posted signs with rules, but no one seems to be overly focused on enforcement! Night security drives around in a golf cart. Ask for a site away from busy street at south end of the park, much quieter along the west side. Lots of nice shaded sites on perimeter backing on river. Water tastes not so good, but is likely safe. We bought drinking water however.

We stayed for a month and it was great: except for the WiFi. It is down at least once a day for an hour or more and sometimes down for more than a day. The office staff say it is because people are skype'ing, but this park is full of 75 year olds, I'm pretty sure most of them don't use computers. Truth be told, they need better equipment and don't want to spend the money. Lots of permanent residents in older park models, but the people are super-friendly and there's lots of activities for those who are joiner-inners! Great dog walking area around a lake that is adjacent. Laundries are cheap. Great location to grocery stores and across from Pinellas Trail. Located about 10 minutes from downtown and 15 minutes from Stadium for watching Blue Jays spring training. We would stay again for sure! No bug problems but is was early in the year. The soil is sandy, so ants will prevail. Use Spray 'n Wash to deter them as it is way better than Comet.

This is a gem in the forest along Wilde Lake. Great Wi-Fi, 70 cable channels, nice owners. Large long gravel pull-throughs, easy for big rigs. Good Sam discount. A few seasonals, but well kept sites. Some strange rules ("no known sexual predators will be allowed in the park" - how would you enforce that one exactly? A little harder to monitor than pick up afer your dog!). Lots of good areas to walk dogs. Feels like REAL camping, with all the amenities at the same time! About 1 miles from I-10; well signed. No road noise - a great place for 1 night or more.

Date of Stay:

This is really a very good park. Pull-throughs and back-ins are both long. Good hook-ups. Van drives around every 15 minutes to take you to the casino. They take Good Sam and get a players card at the casino and use your credits against your camp fees (we saved $8 combined). Casino buffet was good. $3.50 for lunch buffet for 50+yrs old. Good hook-ups. Wi-Fi reception was good but slow (no extra fee). People were great, 24 hr security and very quiet. Its about 10 miles off I-10 but well signed and easy to find.

The previous review was obviously written by owner or close friends. This park is clean, has full hook-ups, no cable, no Wi-Fi, and is a former FEMA camp from Katrina. Half dozen FEMA mobiles and same number of RVs,mostly guys working in Jennings area. It is right along the I-10 and there is LOTS of truck noise 24/7. No washroom or other facilities. No owner/manager on site. You call a number and he tells you where to park. Lots of rain made the field a bog, so he told us to park on a cement pad. No turnaround room at end of road and no pull-throughs. Jennings is a poor Lousiana town, has a Wal-Mart and a small grocery store,couple of restaurants and that's it. There is a better looking park about 20 miles east. We didn't feel unsafe, but not really safe either.

Date of Stay:

We stayed two nights. The people running the park are friendly and helpful. Mainly seasonal RVs, we parked on the lane in overflow, facing the city park. Lots of cars and trucks running up and down the street in front. Trains were not a big deal - 1 or 2 a night, but are a few blocks away. Weird hook-ups (share post, 30 amp only, with extra sewer- long way away from rig). This is an old park, very clean, good laundry and they have recycling (good on them!!). OK for a night or two. Not a really safe area, but we had no trouble either.

Date of Stay:

Not sure how this park got a rating of 10. Older park; grassed sites, some pretty muddy and very close together; lots of seasonals and permanent guests; on semi-busy road. Host/owners were very nice and super helpful. Located across the road from Laguna Madre, but no ocean view to speak of. Good power and cable TV; you have to pay for Wi-Fi ($5/day) but given the price no complaints. Okay for a few nights, but not a place I'd stay much longer.

Date of Stay:

Great park but in a very bad area of town and very hard to find and map on website is useless. People were great; place is super clean and neat; great play parks for kids. A fair number of seasonal and park models but very well kept. Closest park to the Alamo with city bus across the street. But NOTHING around it by way of shopping (Wal-Mart is about 5 miles away and that is it) or restaurants. We would likely stay somewhere else because of the area and lack of services near the park.

Date of Stay:

There is NOTHING here except a gravel lot with hook-ups. A few long-term campers; one left her tiny dog outside for hours in very cold conditions until well after dark. We went to the Motel office to report the problem and desk attendant said call the sheriff which we did. He came by and dealt with the owner. Can pull into 50amp sites and not unhitch toad or truck/trailer. If you are dog tired and want an overnight place, stay ... otherwise stop somewhere else.

Date of Stay:

We were given a site that was too short for our rig towing a car: despite the fact that the place was almost vacant and he saw the length of our rig. Entrance is through a very bad area, but the campground felt okay safety-wise. Guy at the desk was less than pleasant with both the lady ahead of me and with me. Complained about how other campers overload the electrical (30amp). Pages of written rules (which he told us in no uncertain terms that we must read). Dump station water was turned off due to freezing temperatures, but water at sites was still on (strange). Cable TV to our site didn't work but Wi-Fi worked great. Okay for a night but would likely find somewhere else if we were to pass through again.

Date of Stay:

We checked in and were given the 2nd last available site, paid and drove in to find that someone was already in the site. The woman who had checked in before us was standing there with the same problem. The people in our site said they had been there 5 days. Went back to the store and asked for our money back. Dry camped in the truck parking area for the night for $0. Very poor system (a sheet of paper) run by a couple of kids who couldn't care if they messed it up: no apology to either of us. This is a noisy spot even for an overnight because of all the trucks coming and going, and RVs using the free dump station.

Date of Stay:

We stayed here for a month. Our site backed on Lake 7 and was wonderful. Great location for exploring San Diego area. Very quiet at night. Campfires are allowed if you have your own pit/ring. Nice people work and volunteer here. Tons of waterbirds. Lakes are stocked for fishing and boat rentals are available. Better than your average paved parking lot for sure! We had a bit of an ant problem, but used Spray 'n Wash around the unit and they moved out. (By the way, we discovered this little trick in Hawaii and it works way better than pesticides or Comet. No staining and smells okay too.)
