Beautiful NFS campground. Roads are paved, sites are gravel, level, huge, and well-spaced for privacy. Campground is shady and cool, nice for family camping. Restrooms/showers could be cleaner. Rate reflects senior discount. We would stay here again.

Date of Stay:

Stopped here overnight while headed east on I-30. Campground is a bit far off the interstate for an overnighter, but we were finding no suitable campgrounds along that stretch of I-30. Had level pull-through site, with full hookups, cable, and Wi-Fi. All worked well. Sites close together, but OK for overnighter. Staff very friendly, provided escort to site then checked back later to ensure all was OK. Restrooms/showers clean. We would stay here again.

Stayed here while visiting relatives in Dallas. Nice, well-maintained campground in a city park located on the shore of Lewisville Lake. Paved roads and level gravel sites. Restrooms/showers are clean. No cable TV or Wi-Fi. Gated access for security. Shopping/restaurants located about a mile away. Quiet, very pleasant park with lots of shade. We would stay here again.

Stopped here overnight. Large well-maintained park, paved roads and sites, no shade, very windy. Each well-spaced site has a level concrete pad. Restrooms/showers are very clean. Park has pool, sauna, and game room. Located about 10 miles west of Amarillo on I-40. Cable TV and Wi-Fi worked well. Good overnight spot. We would stop here again.

Stayed here for a week while visiting Santa Fe area. Nice high desert park with beautiful views. Gravel roads and sites. Very big rig friendly. Some pull-throughs have concrete patios for a small extra charge. Immaculate restrooms/showers, friendly and helpful staff. No cable TV. Wi-Fi is frustrating. On the whole we enjoyed our stay, and would return again.

Stopped here for an overnighter while traveling on I-30. Office closed, so called posted phone number. Owner answered, said to pull around office to site #25. Pulled into site and phone rang immediately. The owner again, shouting “You are not in the site I told you! But that’s OK. Just be sure to put your money in the slot in the office door!” Weird! No security in this park, except for the watchful eye of the owner, wherever he is. We rolled right on out of that place and will not return.

Very large resort-style park, with paved roads and sites. Staff was friendly and helpful, and provided escort to our site. The pool and spa looked inviting. The restrooms/showers were immaculate. A continental breakfast was offered in the morning. The grounds were extremely well maintained. Although close to the interstate, the road noise was not objectionable. Wi-Fi service was weak. We would stay here again.

Stopped here for an overnighter on our way west on I-40. The campground is located in a large city park about a mile off the interstate. Roads and sites in the campground are gravel. Sites are level. The city park offers a public pool and mini-golf. Sites are first-come first-serve, payment by cash in a lock box. Security is provided by periodic city police patrols. This was a very pleasant overnight stop. We would stop here again.

Stopped here for an overnighter on our way west on I-40. The park is an inconvenient few miles off the interstate. This is an older park, inhabited mostly by longer term residents. Roads are gravel, while our pull-through site was simply two narrow strips of concrete. There is a very nice covered, screened swimming pool. The two unisex restroom/showers were in need of cleaning. Otherwise, the park was well maintained. The rate shown is with a Passport America discount. A sign at the office indicated the park is for sale. We would not stay here again.

Excellent overnight stop on I-40! Stopped here on trip west, then again four weeks later on the return. Easy access from I-40, yet far enough to eliminate road noise. Sites 29 to 35 are level concrete pads, very convenient for overnight stops. Older section of the park mainly inhabited by longer term residents. Management & staff are friendly and helpful, providing escort to site and assistance in hooking up the park-supplied TV cable. Renovations of the restroom/shower facilities are in slow progress. Written information on local attractions, stores, fuel stops, restaurants, and speed traps is provided at check-in. We would definitely stop here again.

Good overnight stop (or longer). Helpful staff provided popcorn at check-in and a much appreciated escort to our site on a cold, dark, and windy night after a long day on the road. Ninety foot long level, gravel pull-through sites make set-up easy. The park is near I-75 but far enough away that there is no road noise. Cash only, no credit cards. We would stay there again.

Beautiful and well maintained park. All staff are friendly and helpful. Groceries and shopping are nearby. Cable and WiFi are provided, although the WiFi signal may be stronger at some sites than others. Restrooms and showers are clean and well maintained. The white sand beach is beautiful, accessed via a paved path over a half-mile from the campground. You can walk or bike to the beach, but those with beach chairs, umbrellas, and other gear will find it more convenient to take the park shuttle. We would stay there again.

Beautiful park with easy access to a fantastic white sand beach. There are two camping areas, Gulf Breeze campground which is more open and located right behind the beach dunes, and Shady Pines which is nestled in the pine forest a little further from the beach. Both have easy beach access via boardwalks over the dunes. Our site in Gulf Breeze was sand, although there are a few concrete paved sites. There is a lot of variation in site length and width, so be sure to check the size when making reservations. Restrooms and showers were clean and well maintained. We received all major networks on our TV antenna, but Verizon cell service was non-existent. The drive to Port St. Joe is over 20 miles, so be sure to bring all you need. There are a couple of convenience stores on the peninsula for necessities. We would camp here again.

Convenient overnight stop on I-65. Long pull-through gravel sites are convenient and level. Restrooms and showers are clean and well maintained. Although there was some highway noise, it was not excessive. We would stop here again.

This park was initially built by the Civil Conservation Corp. It is a National Forest Service park, located in the Cherokee National Forest. There are 33 RV sites, all very large, level, and shaded. Sites are gravel and have electric hookups only. All sites are first come, first serve, no reservations. A mountain stream runs beside the campground. A small concrete lined pond is fed by the stream and available for swimming. Hiking trails lead to waterfalls upstream. Hose bibs are provided at a few locations in the campground to fill water tanks. A dump station is provided. Hot showers and flush toilets are available. For those who can enjoy a quiet wooded setting with only limited amenities, Rock Creek is a very pleasant experience.
