I've visited here many times over the last 11 years and if never seems to change...except they keep raising the nightly/weekly rates. WiFi is email and FB speed only, short term pads are broken up and tilt to the right (uncomfortable during showers and stuff), cable requires box, with a $50 deposit (refundable), and then doesn't work (OTA is OK though), bathroom is clean but it's 100 yards away, and requires a key ($5 deposit...refundable). All in all, I would not stay here if it wasn't so conveniently close to my friends living in the area... When I'm lucky, and a good pad opens up, I stay here for weeks at a time. But that was last year and years past when the weekly was $180, now it's freaking $220. Really, place isn't worth that.

This large park on the lake is conveniently close to New Orleans. A little spendy, and the WiFi is spotty, but their $6 rt shuttle bus 3 times a day, the on-site restaurant and bar, the nicely stocked convenience store, cable TV, the waterfront, the overall friendliness and helpfulness of the staff, make this park a pleasant place to stay while visiting New Orleans. I would definately stay here again. The shuttle was a fine way to begin to explore New Orleans without stress since you don't have to battle traffic in an unfamiliar downtown.

Nice park. Attractive. Grass everywhere. Stayed one night. Sites are compacted gravel, flat, with picnic table, and surrounded by grass. All are pull-through. Very pleasant. Sites are flat enough that most won't really need to use jacks. Facilities are newer so electrical outlets are fine, water is tasty with good pressure. TV is over-the-air with several stations. Wi-Fi was terrible and costs $1/night extra. Down: 2.7 Mbps, Up: 0.37 Mbps. Just fast enough to check your email and visit FB for a while. That's about it. Park is far enough off the freeway, I-10, that it is very quiet, but still easily accessed. Not much to do in the near vicinity.

Lots of mature trees help shade the numerous back in sites. Park also has several grass covered, unshaded spots if you prefer sun. A few pull through sites available. Small selection of staples available in office. Free book trading library. Park accepts mail and packages for residents. Pool is nice, fenced, and clean. All RV sites are large, with patios, and are on sand. Some picnic tables available. WiFi just recently upgraded and now works well for FB, eMail, and the occasional movie during low usage hours. Park has a family section so some children are present.

Older, rustic park with a restaurant/bar on site. Easy access from I-40, easy to get around the park and into my back-in space. I like this park and during my walk around found many flat sites that can handle very large rigs with toads. Some of the picnic pads are broken up and there is no cable TV, only 4 digital stations (English) available with 2-3 Spanish stations as well. There are many back-in sites and many pull through too. I had no problems leveling my rig. Wi-Fi has been fine but I can see if the park was full that many might have problems if they are far from the only transceiver located on the office building. Once up and on-line, it has a time out timer that shuts down your Wi-Fi if it's idle, but it's easily restored. I had to connect with IE or Chrome but could then switch to Firefox. Was able to watch TV programs on-line (but the park is only about a quarter full right now). Bathroom showers are small and one shower head wasn't working but with flip-flops I would have no problem using the stall that had a working shower head. Room was clean with plenty of t-paper. Laundry room was excellent. The rebar mentioned by another reviewer is the handle on the sewer blocks and during a walk around before backing into a space are easily moved out of the way. But: the sewer connections are surrounded by a low cement box and are closer to the RV then the electrical tower so be careful, maybe plan to arrive during daylight. There are 15A and 50A outlets but no 30A so you need an adapter: sold in the on-site store for around $30 including taxes so bring your own if needed. I'm staying here a week, and at $176.10/week (senior rate), I'm pleased so far.

Really have enjoyed my 6 day stay at this park so far. Pleasant and quiet with a cooling breeze nearly all day. Lots of roads and a beach to ride my bike on. The RV campground, where I'm parked, is a hike or bike ride (maybe 100 yards) away from the ocean and beach but there are several RV dry camps available right on the jetty too. It's very quiet and secluded here with lots of trees and shrubs obscuring camp sites. There is a well stocked store about a mile away from the RV campground which also makes and sells pizza and sandwiches. I pick up cell phone signals here and also several Portland TV & local radio stations. When it's hot in Portland, it's usually cool here, but it can get crowded on the weekends since it's only a couple hour drive. I had to wait 1/2 hour on Friday afternoon (12:30 pm) before I was allowed to park on a reserved RV space, but there were 4 no shows that day so not a problem finding a space. And I'm told that this next weekend, July 29 & 30, is all booked too. (But there are almost always no shows). The staff is helpful and pleasant, and the bathrooms are clean. This is a county park.

Excellent park on the CA side of the Colorado River just 5 miles from Parker, AZ and plentiful shopping. Friendly staff. Grassy sites. Very quiet park with no road noise. Some water craft but in the summer mostly, pretty quiet now that the water level is down. Like it enough that I paid $270 for a months stay (electricity is extra, about $0.12 per KWH). Owner would allow me to leave for a trip away and return to continue my stay without further charge (at least this time of year, returning in Feb). Grounds are well kept. Facilities are clean and pleasant. Hardly any noxious bugs and there is interesting wildlife wandering through the park occasionally. Very nice park, enjoying my stay very much. Excellent weather this time of year.
