We've stayed at this RV park the last 2 summers & will continue to do so! We love this campground! It is very clean, very nice & the owners are wonderful! I enjoy walking up & down the mountain roads within the park for exercise. We'll be back!!

We enjoyed Omega Farms RV Retreat, The owners and staff are very polite and want your stay to be the best! The park is extremely clean. WiFi works well. We stayed near the large pond and enjoyed fishing off the dock. This is a catch and release pond. There are also paddle boats available at no charge. The path that circles around the pond and through the park is a great way to exercise and walk the dogs. We would recommend staying at this RV park! We will be back!

This was our first time to stay at this RV park. We weren't impressed! We called early enough to get a good spot and were told there should be no problem getting a good site. Using their website map, we requested several spots that we felt would be suitable. Instead, after we arrived, we found that they stuck us in the WORST spot that they had. We had no shade, next to a busy highway, which you could hear the whole time, and terrible, slow WiFi. When we complainted, we were ignored. Finally, we were moved to another site in the park. Why weren't we allowed to park in that new site earlier?? We found the staff to be rather rude and the majority of the sites are tight, narrow and close together. Will we stay there again? NO! We have since tried Buckhorn, just a few miles away and LOVED IT!

Park is small, very clean and well maintained. When we arrived a very friendly guy greeted us and helped us get backed into our site. There is a busy road next to the park, and a baseball / football stadium nearby: so you can hear the loudspeakers occasionally. Over Labor Day weekend, the park owners held a buffet and had karoke. Sites are very close together and there is a river that runs through the campground. We would consider staying here again.

We've stayed at this park several times - it seems there's more full timers now. Park is quiet, accepts Good Sams & seems well maintained. We arrived after hours & followed the check in directions posted outside the office. When we paid for our site the following morning no one was in the office. I would rather have used our credit card, but chose not to since the rules outside the office direct campers to fill out an envelope with name & address & then to write your credit card number & expiration on the back of the envelope & then push the envelope thru a slot in the wall of the office. That's not good business practice when it comes to credit cards! Who knows if they shred the envelopes, just pitch them, who sees them, etc.

Fantastic campground! This is the most beautiful park! It is meticulously groomed! It is a tad pricey but definitely worth it! Depending on the time of year, they cater meals & feature movies on their cable system every night. They have a guy that goes to the rigs & does a superior job of washing & waxing rigs - we were pleased by the job he did. Buckhorn also has a handyman that is available to work on the individual rigs & repairs whatever needs to be done (in our case, we needed to have our a/c worked on & he fixed it professionally. The roads are all paved, as are the sites. There are 2 or 3 pools & one of them is for adults only. We also stated in the adult section. The exercise room is clean & the equipment well maintained. Wi-Fi is fast & dependable. Interstate 10 is nearby & is a little noisy but other than that, this park is perfect & we gladly give it a 10!

This KOA is a major disappointment! It is actually nothing more than a gravel parking lot with a few trees thrown in. The staff isn't the greatest. We decided since we were just passing thru, we would use their cable TV - but it was mostly fuzz. When we mentioned it to the host, he said, 'oh, others have complained about the low end channels'. We told him that all of the channels were fuzzy & not viewable so we ended up using our satellite. I was also extremely disappointed in the pool - if someone were to drown in it - it be hard to see them & it's a SHALLOW pool. The pool is nothing short of nasty. The floor of the pool looked blackish gray & moldy & the water was dark & foggy! Also, an airfield is somewhere in the area & we sometimes heard planes coming & going - but this is something the park naturally can not help; other then the planes, the campground is quiet. This park has the potential to be really nice but in it's current state it leaves a lot of be desired! TLC is definitely needed! We WON'T be back!

Very nice campground, but a tad noisy with the interstate next to the park. We made our reservations via their website over the weekend & we received confirmation. I'm thankful that we phoned before arrival because their website/email hadn't been checked & they had no idea we were on our way. So a word of advice, always follow up with a quick phone call if you book by computer. Staff was very nice & park was very clean. We would have no problem staying here again!

I oftentimes check out the reviews just to see what campgrounds sound like wonderful places to visit! We've stayed at some wonderful campgrounds thanks to this website! I noted the recent particularly negative review (Jan 2008), about the Amarillo KOA & I haven't left a recent post on it, so now I am. We have stayed at this park every August on our way to & from northern New Mexico. Yes, you have to pass by a mobile home park & fields to get there & there is occasional airplane & train sounds (from a distance), but those are the only negatives that I can think of! During our last stay this past August, their sewer system had been accidentally damaged by someone, in another area digging into the city's sewer line, thus affecting the KOA park. They were decreasing the campers fee to compensate for the inconvience & allowing campers to empty their gray water tanks, just not black water. They were very apologetic about the situation & I'm sure by now, the city has fixed the mishap. The staff is very friendly & goes over & beyond in making campers stay pleasant. They also escort you to your site & stay around to make sure your pleased. We did see the cute hayride wagon loaded with campers & it was darling! The park also furnishes cute little cycles to ride around the park in. Their pool is immaculate (I know, I'm an avid swimmer) & their gift shop is darling! Their grocery area in the office is very well stocked & reasonably priced. The cable & wifi work well & wonderful cookies are given out at registration. The campground is very clean & pretty much quiet! Will we go back there? Absolutely!

This KOA provided us with our worst experience ever with a KOA campground! It's also the only time that we called KOA's national office for assistance! We made reservations 6 weeks early to stay at this particular park & also put in a request that our friends (who also RV) would be parked next to us. We were assured that we would have no problems with this request. I gave my credit card number to hold our site, as did our friends. Upon arrival, we were met by a husband & wife team who were very RUDE desk clerks. They seemed uneducated & unclean. The woman became incensed & angry when I tried to pay for our site with my debit card. She began arguing with me about why I couldn't pay with the credit card that I had held our site with. I explained to her that that shouldn't matter. (KOA - home office agreed with me). Finally, she gave us our site after she verbally berated us & treated us very nasty. We remained nice to her, but to no avail. When our friends then tried to get their site, they were placed clear across the park. When they stated that we had 6 weeks earlier reserved a site next to us, the woman's husband, loudly told us to leave the park & to leave then. The park was only 1/3 full & we had empty spots all around us & next to us where our friends could have stayed. At that point, I called the home office of KOA & was talking to them about the situation when another park worker arrived. He apologized for the situation & told us that it was fine if we parked our rigs next to each other & that if we had any other problems to bring them to his attention. We went ahead & stayed for a couple of days but we were stayed away from the hateful couple. The only redeeming feature of this park was their pool - but beware . . . while I was swimming, I noticed a couple of male park workers intensely watching me & it made me uncomfortable. There are NO other amenities! The park actually looks like a parking lot with gravel, no trees. Would we stay here again? NEVER! There are many other nice RV parks around the area.

Wonderful campground! This is probably the nicest, cleanest campground we've ever stayed at or at least one of the nicest & cleanest! It definitely has the WOW factor! Check in is very efficient & friendly. There are 2 swimming pools - one for adults, the other for families. Pads are concrete & trash is picked up each morning. This campground is impeccable! It has many things to do & is in a beautiful location! We do plan to return!

I was surprised to read the prior reviews. We camped at this campground this past June & absolutely loved it! It is literally 'on the beach' & on the quaint, rustic side. While the sites are a little small, we had no problem fitting our 36 ft, 4 slide 5th wheel into a site & was even able to use our awning easily. The staff were work campers & they were very friendly & informative! They were leaving in August so no doubt, new people are working the desk now. To get to the beach, you walk to the back of the campground to where there's a gate & then follow along a wooden decked sidewalk till you arrive at the beach - believe me, it's right there! We could walk from the beach to our campsite in a minute. We had a wonderful time during our stay & we will be returning.

Park is set in beautiful Texas Hill Country. When we called for reservations, only 1 site was available. The office staff took our name & said the spot would be saved for us. When we arrived the following afternoon, a sign out front said 'no vacancy'. However, when we pulled up to the office, it was closed but there was a sign posted on the door with our name & the site number that we were to use - it was like they 'left the light on for us'. The owners are originally from Germany - but they are proud American citizens & they are very, very nice. They are also very attentive to their guests. The RV park is just outside of Marble Falls & is right off the highway - but it is still a pretty quiet park. We felt very safe & secure here. This park seems to stay pretty full most of the time. We would have absolutely no problem staying here again!

This is a very nice campground, in Burleson, just south of Fort Worth. The park was managed well & very clean. 2 pools were available - one for adults & the other for children - both were sparkling clean. Free, dependable wifi is also available & worked great! The sites are grassy & spacious & the section we were in had small trees. The park is in the process of expansion. We would have no problem staying here again - the only negative that we have is the nearby highway & traffic. The campground is located right off of the highway & it can get a tad noisy. Also, we made our reservations by internet - fortunately, we called while on the road to verify our reservations & the weekend staff doesn't have access to the online reservations & this park fills up frequently, so be sure to call ahead. Again, this is a very nice park & worth your checking out.

Very nice RV park. I noticed in the prior post that the writer was unhappy with the mobile homes that are present - but it IS advertised as an RV & mobile home park. Both times we have stayed there, there have been more RV's than mobile homes. The mobile home residents appear to follow stringent rules, i.e no clothes lines, no vehicles parked in the streets, sites must be kept immaculate, etc. The park is well laid out & sites are roomy. Staff is friendly & helpful & pool has been clean during both of our visits. Campground is quiet & clean & the nicest in town. We've had no problems during our visits there & felt safe.
