What is the bare minimum of amenities and facilities you can get away with if you have a convenient location, and no competition? The answer is this place. Add a staff that is inflexible, and/or software that is poorly designed. (They had us all playing musical chairs with our sites rather than move the data around on their system.) Of course, never reply to your email, and there you have it. Face it- the place is a parking lot, but the ferry to Manhattan stops right here, and it's a short walk to the train and a nice downtown district.

Date of Stay:

Nice wooded setting, around a little lake. Could be, and possibly was a great family campground. However, it has turned into an absolute dump. Rutted, dusty roads, uneven sites, trashy long-term weekend camps with moldy oldies, sewer smell: you get the picture. Take a pass.

Date of Stay:

Well managed, well graveled, well shaded. Permanent sites and park models mostly in back, family fun sites up front by the pool. First class operation. Very tidy and closely supervised. Clean showers from the quick look of it.

Date of Stay:

Closest we could get to DC, but that is about all that can be said in their favor. Deferred maintenance, inadequate gravel and leveling, odd placement of the hookups. The usual signs of an older park on its downhill slide. They initially sent us to a site that had NO hookups! Laundry was nice but the dryers were a ripoff.

Date of Stay:

Dodgy cellular service (AT&T iPhones + Verizon Mifi). Basic RV camping, wooded, convenient to Monticello. Good staff. Quiet.

Date of Stay:

Full scale resort class park, with pools, spa, bar, fishing ponds and kid park. All new construction, some still underway. Concrete roads and sites, grass everywhere else (unfortunate amount of burrs in it!) On Saturday night a lot of partying, but quiet during the week. Some road noise from the Interstate. Great restaurant next door. Be sure to take a swamp tour in the nearby Achafalaya.

Date of Stay:

Scenic city waterfront location, grassy with gravel sites, nice facilities, good staff. Swimming pool and bar. Shuttle to the French Quarter. Great place: highly recommended.

Sorry, but I don't care how large, level, lavish and luxurious a place is, how lustrous are the lavatories, how lovely the lake. If the Interstate thrums and thunders like I was living in a lowly trailer park, it does not rate a 10. Please, if you are going to all the expense and trouble to build a Xanadu for transients with half-million dollar buses, get thee out of earshot of that monstrosity we all can't live without: Ike's great Interstate and Defense Highway System.

Date of Stay:

One of those rare places that does everything right, from the design and construction to the friendly office staff. Big wide easy sites, mostly pull-through. Not next to the Interstate, so it's nice and quiet. Well maintained, ongoing tree planting, huge grass dog run, pool and spa. Highly recommended.

Date of Stay:

Best bathrooms anywhere- they even have normal width toilet paper. Well maintained, level sites with plenty of gravel, some with patios. Great dog walking. Hilltop setting with nice views. Very low road noise. Interesting antique machinery collection. 15+ minutes into old town. Good free Wi-Fi. Very well done park.

Date of Stay:

Best place to camp to visit Carlsbad Caverns, as it is right at the entrance road. A bit funky but friendly, and they are trying, adding new picnic tables, trees, armadas. Great host, though he is not there all year. Some of the bathrooms are recently remodeled but not cleaned very often. Very little road noise.

Date of Stay:

Unattended, so no way to know if the bathrooms are clean, since we don't have a key. Cable TV is fuzzy. Water spigot leaks, Not enough gravel on the site. Trashy neighborhood. Not really in the village. One upside: we got a pull-through site which means we can leave early.

Date of Stay:

In six months on the road, one of out favorite places. Wide open spaces, your own personal saguaro cactus. Great hiking and biking. Active and competent camp hosts, clean and well built restrooms and showers. For a regional park, quite amazing. Only real drawback is the lack of a sewer hookup.
