This is a bare-bones, down-at-heels park for the dedicated fisherman. It is situated on the causeway between Aransas Pass and the Port Aransas Ferry and is right on Redfish Bay. Sites are available where you can back right into the water if you choose. Boat launch, dock, and lighted fishing pier. No showers or restrooms, so you must be self-contained. Very quiet. $250 mo plus electric makes it quite a bargain, and you can bring your own boat and park it here when you aren't fishing. I see the property is for sale, so the park may not be long for this world. Too bad; its kinda weird and grimy, but we enjoyed it.

Rate reflects Access Pass discount. This is an outstanding COE campground on a beautiful lake, with excellent fishing and hundreds of waterfowl. The long back-in sites are gravel, most (but not all) are very level. Widely spaced campsites have ample privacy and some of the sites have spectacular lake views (be sure to cruise around first to locate the choicest sites). Showers are hot and the restrooms are clean. Covered tables, grills and fire rings, plenty of trees to cut the heat. This COE campground is off the beaten path, but still only 15 minutes to Ponca City. We would definitely stay here again.

Rate reflects TX State Parks Pass coupon rate for FHU site. Not in the top tier for a Texas State Park. Our FHU pull-through was described as "semi-level" and it was a lot more semi than level. Plenty long, however. Sites are rather close together and lacking in privacy for a state park. Lots of trees. Excellent Verizon signal, nil ATT. Showers were adequate. Tables & fire ring/grill at each site. Next time we're in the area, we'll stay at the nearby COE campground instead.

What a gem! This pretty little city-owned campground is nestled among huge cottonwoods and abuts a park with walking trails and a small lake. Quiet and lightly used while we were here. Campsites are a bit haphazard, so you may need to cruise around once to identify an appropriate site. Several pull-thrus are long enough for big rigs. Limbs are kept trimmed, but turns may need some caution. Level gravel sites with 30 amps, shared water on some, dump on site, clean but rustic showers/restrooms. Good internet and phone signal on Verizon, poor on ATT. We'll certainly be back!

City-owned campground on east side of Hoisington Recreational Center, at 1200 Susank Road Hoisington, KS 67544 This is a bare-bones over nighter. Brand new 30/50 amp power and water hookups are available at the eastern edge of the parking lot behind the Rec building. 12 pedestals are available (if every rig backed in) but as we were the only rig, we just pulled up to Space #1. Perfectly adequate and value priced.

Rate reflects Access Pass discount. I don't believe we would have stayed here at $28 full price for electric only, plus the $15 entry fee. The National Park itself is spectacular, but the campground is minimalist. No campsites per se, just pull to the side of the campground road next to a electrical box. Covered tables and dumpsters but nothing else. Could not get a voice signal on either AT&T or Verizon - slow, slow Verizon Internet connection only with antenna and amplifier. Campground hosts are not exactly rude, but not friendly either. Lodge restaurant nearby was a major disappointment, but a good gift shop, if you feel money burning a hole in your pocket. Groceries available in Interior, about 2 miles away or in Wall, about 20 miles.

Clean and tidy park, some sites on the river. Very nice showers and reasonable laundry. Adequate gravel sites, mostly level. WiFi was too weak to work in the center of the park. We were able to get a slow signal via Verizon with a good booster/antenna. No ATT signal. Expensive for what you get, but typical for the Yellowstone area.

Expensive for no water, no showers, no sewer and no dump. Water faucet by the restrooms is non-threaded so you can't fill tanks without a water thief. Pretty, fairly shady and quiet, but even the pull-through sites are tight for a bigger rig. Very nice walking trail through the woods. Camp hosts are pleasant. Coin-op firewood dispenser, $4/bundle.

A nice, quiet military FamCamp. Level, gravel, pull-through sites, excellent WiFi, clean facilities, low cost laundry and a friendly, competent camp host. Good base exchange and commissary. Plenty of dining choices nearby, or more 10 miles in the city of Spokane.

Rate reflects weekday rate- weekends are $20 for retired military. Best view sites are #31(best) through #35. Only one pull-through site. Park is unkempt- grass needs mowing, potholes in interior roads, broken asphalt in paved sites. Many power pedestals are rusty and leaning over, some sites have no usable electricity. Laundry needs some TLC. Maybe summer will bring improvements. Staff is friendly and restaurant and fitness center on site are nice. Adequate Verizon signal for our air card. We enjoyed our stay and would come back.

Rate reflects off-season. Pretty, wooded park on the Deschutes River. Sites are flat and paved, but small and close together- better make a reservation if your rig is over 37'.(site #26 is the nicest- long and with river frontage). Park was very full on this Saturday in April. Slow but adequate AT&T air card signal, no service at all with Verizon.

As previously noted, this is primarily a long-term park, with only a handful of spaces for overnighters. Nonetheless, our site was level and the park was quiet and tidy (even if filled with older rigs). We used the laundry which was clean and reasonably priced. We got excellent aircard signals on both Verizon and 4G ATT. Perfectly acceptable for a short stay.

Rate reflects Escapees discount. Nice, basic campground with plenty of pull-throughs. Honor system as far as paying. Utilities are oddly placed in some sites. Fine for an overnight, convenient to the highway, but quiet. Laundry on premises which I certainly appreciated.

A pretty, wooded and private little FamCamp. We are here in the off-season, so no water or sewer available, but only $10 night. Our motor home comes equipped with big fresh and waste water tanks, so several days here would be no problem. Level gravel sites, some pull throughs for big rigs, brand new 50/30 amp pedestals. Close to the commissary and exchange, the gas station near Gate 1 is large and an easy in-and-out for our Class A gasser. The campground has a resident herd of antelope grazing among the sites- what fun to watch! We would definitely stay here again.

Very expensive for a state park ($20 plus $7 daily use fee), but pretty and pleasant. We're here early in the season (it was snowing as we pulled in), but 2 loops are still open. 50 amp hook-up in a pull-through site, fairly level, with a water faucet (for tank filling, not for hooking up) right next to us, so what's not to like? Walsenburg is a charming little town with some nice antique stores to explore.
