Rate reflects 7 nights for price of 6. Our motorhome is 45' long. It could fit in any site here and there was no problem driving the interior roads. We stayed in site 4 (as new campers in the park). In future we would look at sites 63-67 as they have nice large concrete patios, moveable tables, guaranteed satellite access. All sites have a large fire pit. The sites are widely spaced. The weekend was totally full! Pros: grass, spacious, level sites, good services, park itself, lots of birds, park rangers do a great job. Cons: loudspeaker from the women's prison begins at about 6:30 am and goes sporadically til 10 pm, gunfire can be heard from the shooting range most of the time, smell from nearby dairy farms, sewer overflowed the first time we dumped (apparently campers think it's funny to put odd things down the pipe). Otherwise would definitely stay here again. The negatives are not a deal breaker!

We just left Pinto Lake this morning. We only stayed one night as we were on to other places. We would definitely recommend it to others looking to stay in this area. We travel in a 45’ motorhome so Site 28 was perfect for us (as noted in a previous review - thank you!). We were visiting with friends in the area and they didn’t even know this park existed! The price is right too - another park in the area wanted to charge over $80. Staff’s directions were perfect and she welcomed us warmly when we arrived. A lovely, quiet spot. Thanks!

We stay here twice a year when attending the NHRA Drag Races. We travel in a 45' motorhome and this is the closest to the track with sites that can accommodate our length and width. There is talk that the area itself is unsafe but we have never felt unsafe in this park. The only suggestion we would make is that they make sure their trees are trimmed enough. The people who run it are great. The sites are level and clean.

We visited here this past weekend for an RV Rally. They were able to accommodate all 35 of us in roughly the same area. Our rig is 45' long and we were able to maneuver very well. All the connections were easily accessed and we were able to park our toad in front. The WiFi was pretty good most times - except at peak times, but that is normal. We are in an all electric coach and always require 50 amp service. There was no problem. Because of the overly hot summer this year, ants and wasps are a problem in the entire southern part of BC. The Resort had wasp catchers hung in most of the trees but we never Happy Hour or eat anywhere outside without our zappers close at hand. I might add that at this Resort, this is not merely a pool and not just for Resort guests. It is a public hot springs. I thought the fee was comparable with others in the area and it is by far the most beautiful hot springs pool we have encountered. Except for a maintenance person who was a little grumpy, we found our stay most enjoyable. Plus the new foot bridge just opened and that is a big help.

We are full time RVers and have traveled Canada and the USA extensively and this park by far is probably the nicest park we have stayed in especially for Canada. All lots are cement and have 30 or 50 amp power, water, sewer and cable. Wi-Fi is an extra charge but that is common through our travels. The hot tub was shut down while we were there for repairs but the pool was beautiful. The fitness center does not have much in it and it was very hot in the office area and fitness room as I don't think the air-conditioning was turned on. The park is a Co-ownership park and they are very friendly and helpful. In reading the previous reviews I must comment that they are probably not seasoned travelers as the park is not overpriced as they say. Rates throughout the BC Interior are much higher than $48. One park we stayed at in Ossoyos wass $95 per night, not as nice and another was $75 in the Kelowna area.

We decide to stay at this park for the month of December as it's a base to fly home for Christmas. The rate I put in my review is based on the monthly rate. Electricity for a monthly stay is $.15 per KW. This is a very nice park and the people in the park are very friendly. Every Sunday they put on a breakfast in the clubhouse for $5 and on Wednesday's they put on a dinner for $8. The pull-through lots are very long (approx 75')and wide (approx 40'). They have two great pools and a hot tub. I spoke with the owner and he said he built this park 3 years ago and is still busy building cabins. He said he will have 90 cabins when complete. I would highly recommend this park.

When we arrived in the Kemah TX area we did not have an RV reservation anywhere but Marina Bay RV was our first stop. We then spent a couple of hours driving around from Kemah to Galveston Bay looking at about 9 different RV Parks. In the end we came back to Marina Bay as in our opinion it was the nicest of the parks. We stayed for 8 days and would definitely return. The park has level concrete pads and grass and is an exceptionally clean park. We attended the Thanksgiving dinner put on by the park who cooked the turkey and the ham. Everyone else who attended brought a side dish and it was excellent. They also have a pizza and wine night on Tuesday's. There are a number of people who use this park as a work base but are very friendly. The park is central to any shopping one might like to do. Great Park!!

This is an excellent park. We stayed here in December 2010 over New Year's and again this November. Our kudos to the owners for the great changes they have made to the park in the past 11 months. It gives you hope for the recovery of New Orleans. They have added palm trees and rock gardens between the sites. They also have a proper little marina with water and electric. They have also built a houseboat that you can rent as well as a couple of cottages. Well Done! It's kind of nice to be surrounded by million-dollar yachts! We used our Passport America which gave us a rate of $33.00 There is still a shuttle service which takes you to the French Quarter for $4/person round trip, 3 times a day. The outdoor (covered) bar/restaurant that serves great pizza is still there and even the same bartender. We'll stay here again - regardless of the price.

We stayed at this campground in January 2011 and again in November 2011. There have been no improvements made to this campground. This is a good place to stay if you visit Graceland. There were several permanents along the edges that were pretty much unkept. The sites are fairly level but they require maintenance so that they are not mud when it rains. The price is too high for what you get. The next time we are in Memphis we will try a different campground. The two good thing is that there is security 24 hours a day plus shuttles come to the park.

This was a nice park which was 15 miles from Honky Tonk Row in Nashville. Some of the sites are a little tight but we had the first one as you enter the park which could accommodate our 45' rig along with our car. This was one of the few parks that we were able to use our Coast to Coast card. They also accept Passport America. You can arrange a shuttle to pick you up at the park and take you to the Grand Ole Opry for $15 per person. They have a swimming pool here but it is not heated at this time of year. A hot tub would have been nice. We would certainly camp here again.

Ocean Lakes was a very nice campground, and the sites were wide and long with cement pads. There was also a good snack shop restaurant inside the park with good food and was well priced. We rented a golf cart in order to get around the park as there are a total of 3437 sites although only just under 900 are for transient RV's. Security was good as they were constantly driving around at night. They also made sure each vehicle had a pass before they could get in the park. One negative is that the water in the park is from a well and full of minerals which makes it very slippery. I made the mistake of washing the bugs off the front of my coach which left hard water spots all over the front. I had to get out some wax to get rid of them. A word of caution, "DO NOT WASH YOUR RIG". This is one thing that the check-in people could tell you when you arrive. We would stay here again.

Timberlane was a very nice campground. Some sites can be tricky to get into due to the amount of trees and some trees required trimming so they did not touch the top of your coach while driving through. In my opinion $40 per night is high for the quality of this campground. I would have given it a higher rating if not for the price. It is very close to a truck stop for fuel. There is also an Amish Market within 6 miles of the RV Park and this was an awesome place to purchase meat. You do not want to miss this market if you stay at Timberlane. It was very close to Philadelphia and Atlantic City. We seen Deer and wild Turkeys in the park as well as Owls who hooted in the evening. We would recommend and stay at this park again.

Beach Rose was a very nice campground although a little tight. The owners where outstanding in assisting you getting to and out of your site. We could not get satellite access from our site #47, however the owner came over and gave us cable to plug in for cable vision. The park did not provide discounts during our stay. We would recommend and stay at this park again.

Pumpkin Patch was a very nice campground. Sites were quite wide and long and could accommodate your coach without having to unhook your tow vehicle. The park is a Passport America park which brings your nightly cost down to $19 at the time of year we stayed. There was also a very good restaurant adjacent to the park which served fantastic food and you get a 10% off coupon when you check in. We would recommend and stay at this park again.

This was one of the nicest campgrounds we stayed at in Canada while traveling across the country as we had an ocean front site. We did not have 50amp service at our site but that worked OK. The town of St. Andrews was very quaint and they also had a farmers market on Thursday while we were there. We would definitely recommend this campground and would stay here again.
