Nice campground. Reservations were easy over the phone. Check-in was quick. Owners showed me to my site. Sites were a mix of gravel and concrete pads. I was in a pull-through site and it was roomy, easy in/easy out. The campground was quiet with moderate highway traffic noise at night. This campground was located convenient to I-30. The campground has a propane refill station and a small store on site.

Stayed one night here in a water/electric site. The reservation process was easy. Check-in was pleasant and the staff were very helpful showing me to my site and letting me know about the services (kitchen with food delivery to your site/on site hair styling/propane refill/Wi-Fi) and facilities (laundry/pool/dump station/fishing pond). In my opinion there were only 2 drawbacks: first the park was not very well lit at night and second the highway and train noise at night were very disruptive. I could hear the highway noise over my A/C unit and my rain machine.

I stayed here for 5 nights. This is a very busy campground. There are a lot of activities for children. The interior roads within the park are narrow and windy and I doubt that all of the sites are big rig friendly - I'd make sure to note if you're bringing a big rig when you make your reservation. Showers are coin operated. Wi-Fi is available in very limited areas of the park, if this is a necessity for you then make sure to mention it when you make reservations. My problem arose after I checked out. Six days after leaving the campground an additional charge from Timber ridge showed up on my credit card statement. After 3 phone calls to Timber ridge I was told that a staff member thought that there was a tent on my RV site and so I was charged a tent fee for my stay. This was done erroneously without my knowledge. I was eventually able to get the charges reversed. I have real reservations recommending a business that acts in such a manner. A 5 was the best that I could rate this park.

This is a mobile home park with a few short term RV sites. My site had 30 amp electrical service, water, and sewer hook up. This park would probably not be "Big Rig" friendly. Shower room, rest room, and laundry available on site. Park is situated next to Hamlin Lake and boat slips are available. There is a boat ramp at the park. The one complaint I have is the high rust content in the water. I have a filer on my hose, an internal water filter and a britta pitcher that combined could not filter the rust out of my drinking water. RV water filter is trashed and will have to be thrown away after my 6 week stay here. No Wi-Fi.

This is a very nice park. Be warned that monthly sites are first come (or call), first served. Staff was very friendly. They provided trash pick up and propane delivery at your site. There is a small camp store available for sundries, snacks, and camping supplies. Washers and dryers available on both sides of the campground. 2 shower rooms on each side of the campground. Wi-Fi was terrible. I called ahead as I needed internet for an online class and I was assured that Wi-Fi was strong throughout the park. This was not the case at all.

I stopped here for an overnight stay. This park is in the owner's back yard. The park is convenient to I-20. Sites are gravel and require a little work to get your trailer level. I didn't use the restrooms, but they did have restrooms and shower rooms available. The owners were very pleasant on the phone and greeted my promptly upon arrival and showed me to my site. Cash only.

This is a very nice RV park. It is very pet friendly. They have little metal table and chair sets at each site. Sites are pretty close together, but the park was pretty quiet. It was very easy to get in to and out of my site. There is a little RV parts store on site, a propane filling station and clean rest rooms. My only note was that the water was very strong smelling, I would bring a water filter to hook up to the spigot to filter the water through. I would stay here again, no question - lovely place.

This park is expanding. The owners live on site and are very involved in upgrading the park. Right now they have a laundry room and a game room. Wi-Fi is available for an additional monthly charge. I paid $450/month for a full hook up site with utilities included. This is a nice park out of the city limits.

This is a small park with 12 gravel sites, dirt roads and shaded areas. The park is located right off highway 59 just north of Nacogdoches. The owners are on site daily and very accessible via telephone if needed. They added a laundry room with a washer and dryer and will be putting in a shower facility soon. This is a very quiet park with a mix of college students and working people. Grounds were clean and well maintained although the rain makes the sites a little muddy, but it's no worse than any other park with gravel sites. Sites are mostly level with ample room to park and pull in/out of drive through sites. Wi-Fi was strong and reliable. My site was well lit at night and I felt very safe taking the dogs out after dark. Neighbors were very friendly (my hose split while I was there and my neighbor turned my water off so I wouldn't have a flood and taped a note to my door offering a spare hose if I needed it). I would stay here again without question.

I stayed at this park for 12 weeks on a work assignment with 2 adults, 3 dogs and 2 vehicles. I did not use the cable provided, but there is a hook up at each site. I got 14 TV channels with my antenna. The Wi-Fi is relatively reliable, but slow at times. I was able to stream Netflix movies with my Roku about 75% of the time without problem. This park is very well lit at night which is great for that late night dog walk. There is a fenced in dog run which is nice for the dogs as well. This park is right next to the Ford park and South East Texas fairgrounds. There is increased occupancy on the weekends with the travel baseball teams camping here and it gets a little louder at night on the weekends. However, the park is pretty quiet on weeknights which is good for those of us that are here working. There is a nice pool, 4 bathrooms with showers and a laundry room with 4 washers and 4 dryers. It costs a dollar to wash and a dollar to dry. There is a camp store up front and it's open each day until 6 PM. There is a continental breakfast daily with coffee, juice, milk, bagels, dry cereal and waffles. Easy I-10 access. Sites are cement pads and very level. All of the sites have a picnic table and there is additional parking if you have more than one vehicle. This is one of the nicest parks that I've ever stayed at.

This was a very nice park for an 11 week work assignment. I was able to pay a flat monthly rate or $375 for the site, water, and up to 400 kW of electric a month. Cash, check, and credit are accepted but they charge a 3% fee for all credit cards, and there was a $75 deposit for monthly renters. I was able to get 14 TV channels with my antenna and about 42 with the cable at my site. They did some wi-fi improvements while I was camped there, and the wi-fi was fairly reliable. The internet was password protected, and I was not able to use my Roku for streaming Netflix while I was camped here. Sites are sand and fairly level. We were pretty close to our neighbors on all sides. There were 2 laundry and shower buildings that were open. Washers ranged from $1.25 to $1.50 per load, and there were front and top loaders available. Dryers were $1.25 to dry and did a very good job. I camped with 2 adults with 2 vehicles and 3 dogs. My dogs enjoyed the dog run. There was propane on site (no fills after dark). They had a small store up front with food, sundries and RV supplies. There was easy highway access, shopping, and restaurants nearby. This park was very quiet after dark. Minimal lighting at night, but I always felt safe walking my dogs after dark. There was a playground area for kids.

Most of the residents were full timers working in the area. The landscape is littered with rubbish. The roads and sites are all dirt that get very muddy when it rains. There is a diner up front with WI-FI access and a small store that sells food, RV supplies, and sundries. The laundry room has 3 washers/3dryers and the cost is $1.25 per load of laundry (to wash and dry). This park is isolated in West Odessa but has easy I-20 access. Water is supplied by a water tower, and we did lose water for about 12 hours while I stayed there. Management is working on improvements to the park, and the surrounding area including getting WI-FI to the park and increasing the number of sites. I stayed at this park for a week until I could get a site another park in the area.

I parked here for 3 months in a travel trailer with 3 dogs and 2 vehicles. The manager is great. We arrived after hours and he was accommodating and helpful. This park has a large number of permanent residents and some mobile homes as well. The park has great Wi-Fi, a laundry room with 3 washers/3dryers @ 1.25/use and a propane filling station. It is within 3 miles of shopping, dining and is near 3 main highways to get around the Raleigh/Durham area easily. Duke University is 3 miles away (check out the botanical gardens: beautiful). This is not a modern park. Sites are unlevel. There are no public restrooms or showers. There are lots of trees and ample shade. I felt very safe here, the park is clean and quiet. It was the perfect place for a 3 month work assignment and I would return. I paid $420/ month including utilities for my stay. Cash or check only.
