We stayed at this park for 6 months or so as full timers! The park was very clean and maintained well!! The owners were very friendly and so eager to make each guest feel welcome and important. We were able to keep our dog outside as much as we wanted with a wireless pet fence to keep him in our yard. They had propane on site that was a very nice amenity and would fill your tanks and hook them back up. They had two front loading gas dryers that worked well. We have stayed at campgrounds with electric dryers that aren't efficient. They also had items in the office to purchase for your RV if needed. They did not have concrete site or kids activities but overall I rate this park a 9. We would stay at Riverside RV Resort in the future!

The location of this park is what sells it! It is one of the nicest parks in the area because it is close to Hwy 59. Other comparable locations are far away. It is clean and maintained well with concrete sites and private bathhouses. This park states they are pet friendly but only allow pets to be out on a leash while being walked, preferably out of the park. There is not a dog walk or area within the park you can take your pet. They also state they are kid friendly but only on rare occasion are there activities for kids. There is a nice park within walking distance that we used frequently! The shuffle boards and horseshoes are not entertainment children would appreciate. We stayed at the campground as full timers and struggled to keep our site looking uncluttered enough for management while trying to provide entertainment for our child. The Wi-Fi is horrible! Rarely a day went by without having to call and request them to reset the routers or have to put my work to be done on hold until I could successfully get online. If you frequently use the web this is not the best location. Overall I rate this RV park at a 4 due to the effort put forth in maintaining and keeping it very clean. Beyond that we feel that the management/owners need to to focus on each guest case by case while following regulations as opposed to enforcing rules as black and white forgetting that people also live full time at Forest Retreat RV Park.
