OUTSTANDING Park! The only reason we gave them an 8 is because after the flooding, the campground is still recovering and then, it’s mainly the office facilities and such. Bathrooms and showers are clean and well kept, laundry facilities are also clean and well kept. AND, they’re FREE! These are commercial grade machines which do the job very well and did I say, FREE!? The grounds are very well kept and RV sites, spacious. The sites along the river are concrete and provide plenty of room even with all slides out. The physical grounds of the park is large and NOT packed with RV sites so that it looks like an RV condo. Water, electric and sewer hookups are easy, well positioned and work. Management folks are very nice, helpful and willing to do whatever they need to do to make your stay comfortable. (No, we don’t work for the park nor have any investment in it.) We originally planned on staying just for a couple of days on our slow trek back to Texas after touring the east coast. We decided to stay for the week and are enjoying every minute of it. We’re right on the Mississippi River. Interesting to watch the barges slowly making their way up and down the river. Some of them are HUGE. The parks is also close to Memphis, TN and activities there are within easy reach. Will absolutely return and make TSMRRV Park a stopover for any trips north east.

Great park with friendly staff. We’re staying here for a couple of months in between trips (we fulltime) and the “daily” rate reflects everything: full hookups and electricity. Park is close in to Austin downtown, UT and pretty much everything else you’d visit Austin for (ACL, SXSW, Biker Rally, Rodeo, etc). Very impressed with this park, one of the best we’ve stayed in. It is pet friendly with 3 very large fenced in areas to let your animals play while you sit and throw the ball and enjoy your favorite beverage. There is also a very large walking area with field that is good for letting the dogs off leash to thrown frisbees or balls for the dogs to run. Across the street from the park is yet another area for pets to run freely. WiFi is through TengoNet which can be frustratingly slow (we use MilleniCom instead). The premium sites are concrete and very level. The water pressure is very good, electricity consistent w/no problems, spikes, etc. The bathrooms and showers are immaculate, water pressure in the showers is great, each shower having two spray heads, one fixed, one on a hose. Very nice pool area, club house with outdoor patio. Laundry mat is very clean but rather high priced with small drums, AND they don’t have change machines nor will they give you change at the office. Best bet is to go to the laundry mat down the street and use it: also very clean with VERY large drums and inexpensive. This park is a mixture of long term and short stays but all managed well. The park is very well taken care of and nicely laid out. Very easy to maneuver our coach (40’ tag MoHo) and we’ve seen 45’ pull in easily. Check-in/out easy and quick: call ahead because this park fills up quick! We’ll definitely stay here anytime we come back to visit friends.

Great little park. Every site was very large and easy to get into. Absolutely NO highway noise that we could hear. Bathroom and laundry room left a lot to be desired (seemed like an after thought) - one toilet, shower, washer & dryer. The room was clean, though. The attendant seemed to be in a perpetually grumpy mood - bothered by having to do his job - almost felt like we had to apologize for asking a question. The park was a very nice park despite him. Enjoyed walking around with the dogs in the evening and looking at the stars. Had to de-burr the dogs going back into the coach. One thing this part of west Texas has in abundance is burrs and, man, do they stick! Had to make sure and clean them from inside the coach also.
