Hard to know where to begin. While this place has the potential to be nice, it's so poorly managed that you can't tell tell how many of the issues are the age of the infrastructure or the overall management. We have stayed here twice since it's the only thing close to Frisco, but the reservations are pretty worthless. It is a "first come" set up, so if you reserved a spot with water, sewer and 50 amp power and they are over booked (which has happened twice with us), then whoever gets here first gets the spot. Yes they took our money for a deposit and called us while we were in route and said we didn't have a site. So, during this stay we were asked to limit our power usage since it they had so many sites on one circuit that it kept tripping the main breaker. We were also sent to three different sites before we got one that was not occupied. Again, very poorly managed. I'm sure the tent campers are happy with this place but if you have a motorhome pass this place up. It's way past it's prime.

Nice enough place and nice folks. Cash or check only and you can wash your rig one time during your stay if you ask first.

First class resort. Well laid out with it's own beach and marina. Lots of folks review parks and give them "10" ratings just because the folks were nice to them. This one truly earned it. We'll be back.

Good park if you want to hang out near the Kemah boardwalk or the Clear Lake area. Pretty clean, with a nice lady at the desk. Spaces were very tight for a 45' motorhome and pretty close together. It appeared there were lots of folks living here full-time.

There is no way this place is a 10 and the photos on their website makes it look way better than it is. This place looked run down. What little grass they had was not mowed and poorly maintained. When we checked in, they crossed out the part on the site map where they pick up the garbage. We finally located the dumpster. We were hooked to 50 amp power and tripped the breaker several times while pulling about 30 amps per leg. Wi-Fi was slow and not dependable. And you had the worst of both worlds; I-35 in front, a dual railroad track behind park, with a plant on the north side that was the source dust clouds when the wind got up. And of course you couldn't wash your RV, so is was pretty bad. The office looked sad and tired. Nothing about this park was appealing except the location if you wanted to overnight.

Nice folks and easy to get into our pull thru site. They offered good suggestions for helicopter tours and park info. And it was the only park on our 17 day trip that allowed you to wash your RV onsite.

Nice park and good location. We were on the east side and you can hear the truck noise from I-44 pretty well, but it didn't bother us. Looks like they are doing some expansion work. A pool would be nice, but I don't think there is a park this nice anywhere in OKC.

There was nothing "Premium" about our pull through spot. First off, there are lots of tight turns to get in here and we had to unhook the toad to park. Second, the sites were way unlevel, so there was not enough suspension travel in the coach to get level. Third, the site we were in didn't have 50 amp power as billed. We spent an hour troubleshooting the coach for electrical problems after contacting the park people. Then one of the other park guys says, "Yep, that site only has 30 amp service to that 50 amp plug." Would have been nice to know going in. Since I left early the next morning, I called them about the issue; still no call back from them after 5 days. There is no way this park is a 10. Or much more than average.

This park represents one of the issues with this site. It gets both high and low ratings as I suspect the expectations of folks are vastly different. We just finished our second trip to the Virginian and it was considerably worse than the first. The whole place was a giant mud hole and the site we were in was so soft the coach sank into it when we pulled in. Since this is "the only place in town", it should get a high enough rating for its location, but little else makes it worth more than an average rating. The husky guy who tracked us down when we pulled in was gruff about "I tried to stop you before you passed the office" but I pointed out that he had signs posted everywhere about "pulling forward and pulling to the right to check in". He pushed me along enough that when my body language turned to "I've had enough of your crap" he lightened up. This is a prime example of what a lack of competition will get you.

I was excited by how well our late (after dark)arrival was handled and how nice the folks were. This soon faded the next day when it came time to pay up and the day crew took over. I was quoted a rate on the phone, but lots of extra fees / taxes plus charges for kids and then when our friends came by to pick us up for dinner, they wouldn't let them in without charging them as well. Lots of wrist bands to wear and parking passes to display and it was just not that great a place. Very dry weather had the river down a bunch and our stuff was coated with dust, inside and out. We checked out a few other parks in the area and unless you want one "close" to the water, there are others that look better. It looks like they built cabins where the good sites were at one time. Bonus - Stop at Ninfa's Taco stand up at the "Y" when headed toward Canyon Lake. Best breakfast tacos ever, but not much to look at.

This place was pretty nice and they were constantly watering and mowing the grass, so someone got the message. The people running it were very friendly and made several suggestions that ensured we had a good time. We would stay here again for sure. Also, the sign is pretty small, so when you see the Virginian hotel sign, turn on the south side and the park is behind the hotel.

Clueless teenager in the office, but a sharp guy in the golf cart in the park. Nice folks and a clean older park. It was packed when we were there and they were sending folks to WalMart, so make sure you call ahead. Pool was clean and the sites were well kept and lots of green grass. We would stay again.

10% discount with Good Sam or AAA. This was a good overnight place as you can pull in with your toad, leave it attached and pull right back out in the morning. Limo from Big Texan will come get you and all the truck stops are in the area, so fuel / truck wash / services are all close. Nice folks there too.

Date of Stay:

Nice place in a good area of the park. However, I didn't see any spot there I would list as a "pull thru" as all the ones we saw required you to back into them. And there are wooden "stubs" at the rear of each site that you need to be careful of when backing in with a larger motor coach or trailer. Lots of water pressure, so bring or buy a regulator.

I read the reviews on this place and I don't get it. We love this place. It sets in a canyon between two huge rock spires. No, its not real fancy, but this place exudes the essence of Monument Valley and they show a free John Wayne movie every night. We will stay here again. There is no cell service but the WiFi works well. And make sure you take the drive thru the valley from the visitors center. Best thing going.
