This rate reflects PA discount. This is a very lovely, clean, well run park. WiFi is super strong and the cable TV is very adequate. The park is clean and well cared for. The staff are wonderful, helpful and friendly. The water is soft, but that is fairly common in Texas. Use less soap and shampoo. The splash pad is a hoot for youngsters! It is convenient to I-20 and several state highways. We will definitely stay here again.

While it is very pretty, this park is way too expensive for what you get. We camp over 200 nights per year. This is the most expensive park we ever stayed in. At $40 this would be an OK park. This rate reflected Good Sam discount, and the up-charge for weekends. We originally planned four nights and paid the weekend rate. Discovering we had a mechanical issue, we extended three nights more but they refused to let us convert to the weekly rate. Other parks have done that for us before. The sites are very narrow. You could literally open your window and tap on the next door window. There are few tables, but there is no room for them anyway, or for chairs. There is no shade for the pull-through sites. The Wi-Fi is not functional. The Cable TV is snowy. It is more than half full of extended stay campers. Those campers are working families and do not cause any trouble or noise. It does rankle that they are paying $600 per month and the transients are paying the equivalent of about $2000 per month. The most concerning thing of all is there is no one there when the office is closed. No one answers the emergency number. There was a water leak, causing a flood and no one answered when the water company worker tried to reach them. No one picks up. Someone put beer bottles in the fountain and I walked by it for two days before I finally fished them out myself and disposed of them. This place is the only game in town and they know it. Once someone else opens up a reasonable park, they are in for an awakening.

Good place to over night or short stay. Just far enough from freeway so no noise. Roads and sites are gravel, level, with space for 37 foot m/h and toad. Power, water, and cell (AT&T) good. We would stay here again in our motorhome.

This park is a wonderful, quaint, family owned campground. It is a quiet peaceful area with easy access off I-90. The grounds and facilities were extremely clean. It was a wonderful experience, and a good value. We would go out of our way to stay there if in the area. Be sure and get some huckleberry ice cream in the well stocked store.

If you stayed here in the past, you should consider returning. The owners have invested a lot in improving this campground. It is clean, spacious, the Wi-Fi works and they have built new facilities for check-in, restrooms and laundry. The staff was very friendly. It is a good value campground. Ask for directions, the access from I-35 is confusing. We will stay here again.

This rate reflects a monthly stay. This is an exceptional destination park. The sites are beautifully landscaped and maintained. The view is fabulous and the owner and staff could not have been more friendly and accommodating to us. It would not be possible to improve on any aspect of our stay. We will stay here again.

This park is a mess. They have taken a really nice little park and torn it up. Gravel trucks speed up and down the streets and a layer of dust settles on everything. The noise is awful. The dumpsters overflow. The price is outrageous for a park where the pool has been closed for two years, very poor WiFi, and only a few cable channels. You may get crammed into a double site, nose to tail with another RV. They claim the price is justified because they are near Yellowstone, when actually they are 90 miles away from Yellowstone. This is our third awful stay at a KOA and we are through with them.

This is a great basic convenient stop along I-90. The landscaping is well maintained. The restroom was immaculate. The sites are gravel. The owners are on site and very helpful. No pool and Wi-Fi is spotty. The sites are well maintained and level. We will stop here again.

This appears to be a great experience for youngsters. Adults camp as well. This is a campground, not a resort. The price is too high for what this camp provides for adults. No Wi-Fi, no cell service, bad cable, poor water pressure, poor litter pick-up, inadequately trained office staff. One concierge did not know how to book a stay at another KOA. The restaurant and tavern were under-staffed and the service was awful. Almost everyone travels with pets. They have spent a vast amount of money on enticing families with children. There is only one place to exercise your pet and it is not fenced. Can you put up a simple fence for a dog park? They need to police the speeding carts and ATVs. The best thing about this park is the staff at the Stables. We will look elsewhere next time.

This park is a great place to stop for a few days. It is a no frills park, but what they do, they do very well. The landscaping is very pretty. There is no pool, but they have full hook-ups and the best Wi-Fi we have ever had in three years of travelling. The location is very convenient. Unlike others, we were not bothered by road noise at all. There are a lot of interesting things to do in this town, so you will want to stay longer than you planned. We did! We will camp here again.

This is a good Interstate overnight stop. The staff was friendly and did not overburden with rules. The setting is pretty. There are no frills. The road and sites are gravel and dirt. It is an easy location and good value for the price.

This is a very pretty campground. The office personnel were nice and friendly. It is not set up for a big rig coach. Leveling was difficult and bugs were very bad. The campground was extremely crowded with multiple tents and pop-ups on each site. It is a great place for children and family gatherings, but not for big rigs. The roads are very narrow for maneuvering.

The staff in the office are friendly, but whoever assigns sites has no idea how it is done. Just because you request a pull-thru and FHU does not mean that is what you will get. The maintenance fellows who drive around in the carts here are very friendly and helpful. They deserve a higher number. This park does not. It is very overpriced for what you get. It has been taken over by a corporation and it shows. It appears that the revenue from this park is being shifted to other properties. If you are mobile and stopping for one or a few days, find another place. The "transient" sites are accessed by driving across the entire park, through more than 600 park models and RVs that have been parked for a very long time, on narrow hilly streets with very sharp turns. You will arrive at a barren field at the lowest point where there are approximately twenty somewhat level somewhat gravelled sites. A few have sewer tanks above ground. The park is infested with ants. They will invade your RV. Next door is a dump site for landscape and construction debris. Each evening we heard gunshots from that direction. The WiFi does not work. The only things this park has going right is the guys in the carts and the location near the racetrack. If you have AT&T cell phones there is no connection most of the time. We will not stay here again.

This is a beautiful state park. The sites are large and well maintained. You may not need a reservation mid-week, but it fills up on weekends. A few of the inner loop sites with full-sun have 50 amps. The perimeter sites back to a fully wooded area which provides some shade. The perimeter sites are a challenge to level for a larger trailer or motor home. We will stay here again. It is lovely.

We camped here four nights. The staff was very friendly and helpful. They did seem to be somewhat inexperienced and there was some confusion at the desk. I do not agree with the previous review which was unfair to the current staff. While the staff are welcoming, the check-in procedures are not. Upon registration you are presented with a list of twenty-four rules and regulations and the dire consequences of failing to follow them. The campground is visually cluttered with signs about "No's and Don'ts". The operation appears to be geared to a large population of seasonal campers and cabins. The transient sites are along the road by the pool. They can be very noisy. You will need to share a water hook-up with your neighbor and will need a very long hose. They did not tell us this upon making the reservation or checking in. While in a beautiful setting, this park has some significant flaws. There is no trash pickup. The only dumpster is at the entrance, which is very far from some of the sites. There are no receptacles for dog waste. The Cable is snowy and the Wi-Fi is not functional. If you travel with a Verizon hot spot, it will not work there. The county roads to the area are very adequate for a 44,000 lb. motorhome. Your GPS may try to tell you differently.
