This park is simply beautiful! Sure, check in was a little tight, but once inside the campground it's pure bliss. The staff were friendly and helpful and our fellow campers were friendly as well. The roads were adequate for our 35' motorhome and the concrete pads are level and the sites nicely spaced. There was a nice playground for the kids too. All the hookups worked fine and the park was very clean and well maintained. I wish I could give it 6 stars for value. Nearby is the city park and it too is a great value. It's an easy walk to the park and a must see. You'll be pleasantly surprised at all there is to see and do there, from a train to pioneer homes to the waterfall to a petting / wildlife zoo. Together the RV park and city park make for a memorable getaway, especially for us frugal campers. We'll definitely be back!

I don't know what has happened to this state park. This was once our favorite destination but not any more. While most of the rangers and staff are friendly there is one who seems determined to spoil the camping trip if he can. He frequently patrols the campground looking for the tiniest infraction on the rules and gives folks a hard time. For example, I saw him go after a handicapped person because the front wheels of their truck was off the pavement, on gravel but off the pavement. Other TN state parks we've stayed at don't act this way, just Tims Ford. The picnic tables are shaky, the restrooms are nasty, and the wooden bridge over the lake inlet is in disrepair, all while he patrols looking for us lawbreakers. It's easy to see this once was a beautiful park but people like him can turn a pleasant outing into an unpleasant one. It'll be a while before we go back there and hopefully he will have a change in attitude or be working elsewhere by then.

Rate reflects Good Sam discount. This is a pretty nice park with a few drawbacks. The location is good, with only a short drive to many activities. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Park roads are paved and sites are in good condition, with easy access to hookups. Several sites have shade, which is a big plus in the summer heat. Cable TV only consists of about 20 channels and most were snowy, but watchable. Internet was weak and pretty unreliable at our site. Maintenance guy had a German Shepard tied outside that barked frequently and lurched menacingly toward us whenever we walked by on the street. Some long term campers looked junked up around them. I'd stay here again but I might just check around for something better next time. Maybe that big dog will be gone by then.

This was a nice campground in a quiet area at the south end of town. Hookups all worked fine and Wi-Fi was fast. Park staff were all friendly and helpful and the spots were clean and roomy with small shade trees at most sites. This is a good base to visit the many sights in the area. We enjoyed our time there and will stay there again when in the area.

This park was a big disappointment for us. When we arrived for a 2 night stay we were required to pay for a 3 night minimum. Our Good Sam discount was not recognized either. We were required to pay a deposit for a gate card and then had to wait until late on the morning of our departure for the office to open so we could recover our money. When we were escorted to our site we passed by campers in poor condition, and some even appeared abandoned. Our site was newly concreted, but was so badly out of level that I used several blocks to level our camper. Power and water worked fine but the cable was snowy. WI-Fi was available but at an unreasonable cost. The park rules forbid large dogs but we were soon accosted by a pit bull and 2 German Shepard's who would have killed our little dog had we not reacted quickly. Rules required cleanup after dogs but the roads and paths were lined with droppings. We had to pay $2 extra for our little dog but there was no dog run and obviously the cost wasn't used for the park cleanup either. Traffic completely disregarded the speed limit and walking the park roads was risky. The only nice thing about this park was the lake. The ducks swimming in it made for a tranquil setting. If we're in the area again we'll definitely stay elsewhere.

Price reflects PA discount. We stayed here while visiting Sequoia park. The drive to the national park was reasonable, but a little long. Spaces were nice, but pretty close together. The owners were friendly and helpful. All hookups worked fine and Wi-Fi was available, but expensive. There was some traffic noise at night and frequent trains passed by as well. These sounds might be a problem for light sleepers but they didn't disturb us. We'd stay here again.

This park is a good place to stay while in or passing through the area. The Oasis resort is closed but the campground and pool are both still open. Sites are paved and the utilities and laundry all worked fine. Paid Wi-Fi was available but the price was unreasonable. Checking in required a trip to the Casa Blanca which was somewhat inconvenient since they were a few blocks away. It served it's purpose well though and we'd stop by again in the future.

This is a great place to stay while exploring Bryce Canyon. The free park shuttles are the best way to visit the canyon and are just a short 4 mile drive away. The RV park is peaceful and the spots beneath the trees are spacious and clean. What really sets this park apart though is the treatment we received here. The park staff were all very friendly and helpful. When we had vehicle problems they went out of their way to help us out. If you are looking for a place that's more than just a parking lot then this is the one for you. We'll happily stay here again when we're in the area.

Rate reflects Passport America discount. I suppose this was a bad time of year to visit this park. Most of the amenities were closed as was the office. We never saw any staff while we were there and even paid by envelope for our site. Hookups all worked fine and the pool was open and unattended, but that was it. This looks to be a snowbird paradise but in the summer it's just a place to stop for the night. For the money I'd stay here again though.

This park is in a great location for visiting Tombstone. It's within easy walking distance of the main street attractions, but it's far enough away to avoid the noise. The staff was very friendly and helpful and pointed out several must see sights in town. Sites were reasonably level, and the hookups worked fine, except for the cable. Most channels were snowy and some were unwatchable. Wi-Fi worked great and was fast. The office and area around it was pretty junky, but the rest of the park was nice and well kept. I'd stay here again.

This is a very nice campground and the location is perfect for seeing the many sights this area has to offer. Sites are gravel and neat and the hookups all worked fine. Wi-Fi was reliable and fast. The staff was very friendly and helpful and suggested several places to visit too. Fast food and groceries are within easy walking distance too. We'd definitely stay here again.

Rate reflects PA discount. This park is in a good location for visiting the space center and the beaches, but don't look at it as anything more than a place to spend the night. There wasn't anything to do here, and even walking our dog was a challenge with cars speeding through the park without regard for the speed limit or the safety of others. There was a cable TV connection but it did not work. However, our antenna pulled in many channels so that was not an issue for us. The outlet at our site was broken and the plug kept falling out, and the water hookup leaked through the faucet. The staff was very nice and helpful and that helped overcome the drawbacks. If you stay here be sure to ask for a site at the back of the park. The road noise at the front is loud and incessant. Next time I'll check around before coming back here.

Rate reflects PA discount. This is a beautiful, well maintained park with an extremely friendly staff who really made us feel welcome there. We were escorted to our concrete pull through site that was perfect for an overnight stay. The WI-Fi and utilities all functioned great too. This is an ideal spot for an overnight or as a base while seeing the area.

Rate reflects PA discount. This park was a great find! The owner and everyone we met there was very friendly and helpful. Sites are gravel and well spaced with many shade trees. Pool and grounds were clean and well maintained. Wi-Fi was fast and all hookups worked perfectly. The park was very peaceful with only a short drive to the beach or shopping. We'll definitely be coming back here again.

First, let me say the area is beautiful. Just a few miles west are some great air boat rides and Shark Valley is the place to go to see abundant wildlife. However, this RV park is by far the worst I have ever seen. The staff was rude and indifferent. The road was in poor condition and the grass at the campsites was tall. The water constantly looked and smelled rusty. It was so bad it even stained our shower and commode. Some full time residents were dumping waste water on the ground and a strong odor emanated from that. The power was unreliable as well. As we were leaving we discovered there was no water available at the dump station to clean our hose or the area. If you must stay here be sure to bring your own water and don't even try to bathe in that stuff. If you can at all, skip this place entirely. I sure do wish we had.
