It's kinda rare to find a 10 out there, but given the location to Houston and Spring, this is it. Pretty much everything most people have already said is accurate. However we did not experience all the noise people talked about. This was Memorial Day weekend as well. I kinda expected a thunderous speedway, or more plane/airport noise. I guess it could get noisy but I didn't really notice it. We spent most of our time out in Houston and some time in Spring, both are really close. Our evenings were spent in the park, which is taken manicured and cleaned to the point you can go barefooted almost anywhere. We used the pool which has nice feature, starting at 8:00 p.m. adults only. The park is mosquito controlled, which is nice. Houston can have elephant sized mosquitoes. I didn't notice mosquitoes anywhere in the mornings, however as night set in around 9:30-10:00 p.m. came around a got a few bites while sitting outside. Wifi worked well throughout our stay, cable TV has quite a few channels, and all facilities were clean. There is a man-made lake in the middle of the park, I did see a few people fishing, but we did not. There are sites surrounding the lake, I think I'd request one of those if we come back. We got a late site for the weekend and did really get a choice, but it wasn't a problem.

We stayed here one night on our way back from skiing in at Taos Ski Valley. Spacious pull through everything worked, water, sewer, electricity, etc. Pad was concrete and level. Park was easy to maneuver. We did nothing in the park. We arrived around 3-4:00, did a little shopping, went out to eat came back and went to sleep. I would stay here again. We did not use any of the park amenities, or look to see what was available.

We haven't stayed here in a three years. I was getting kinda scared based on some of the reviews. Our last trips to Taos we stayed in houses. To me this was the best RV park in the Taos area years ago. It is town, not out on the mesa, I remembered the sites being large enough and so on. We came back over spring break to go skiing at Taos Ski Valley. I was relieved to see it hadn't really changed, except some upgrades to the bathroom sinks. Our site was level with plenty of space, there is no traffic noise. Sites are divided by sage type bushes, I like the natural touches with the vegetation. Some sites have concrete pads, most are gravel. The wifi signal was pretty spectacular for all 4 of us and we had phones and a laptop connected without a signal drop for 5 days. There is no cable but the local channels suffice for getting the news if you need to wake up to one of the national shows or get tomorrow's weather. Each site has it's own trash receptacle which was emptied daily. Each site also has a picnic table and grill. Keep in mind this New Mexico, it's dusty here. If the wind blows you will get some dust on you. It's not the parks fault if the wind blows from time to time. The only reason it does not get a 10 is the availability of management. We didn't have a problem, just thought it odd the hours were 9 to 3:oo p.m. daily.

We stay in San Antonio quite a bit. Our kids go to UTSA. We've never stayed here before because it's not as close to downtown as Traveler's World. To start off with this park is extremely well maintained. No junk anywhere and there looks to be some full-timers with all kinds of set ups and everything is tidy. I'm extremely picky where we stay. No longstanding mobile home parks, etc. Navigating the park is easy. The sites are a little narrow for my taste, but if all you're gonna do is stay inside or go to the city it's no problem. We chose a "Premium-Plus" site with an extra parking place for our kids to come visit. Our site had a picnic table as well. No cable TV and not a lot of channels to be picked up. Looks as if they had cable at one point but not anymore. Not much shade throughout the middle of the park. Some trees at the end of the lanes.

You stay here because of the location. Just on a side note this RV park has 93 sites, is larger than the "14 sites" implies. Maybe they only have 14 sites available for use. We drove through the entire park and there were open sites here and there. We're in Austin a lot so we were aware of the park condition, it's old and part of Austins pop culture. They haven't sold out yet to all the condos and apartment developers yet. We put "Didn't use" on restrooms because we couldn't get them to work, if we would have stayed longer we would have questioned it. We only stayed one night so we could walk to the Trail of Lights in Zilker Park and not have to mess with the parking. Lots of restaurants around and Thom's Market with in walking distance. You have to call for reservations. They do not have a website but do have a Facebook page. They did work with us, our motorhome is almost 40 feet and we got in. Owner was friendly. I'd come back just for the location. Yes there are lots of travel trailers and rvs that are permanent but it wasn't a problem. Our site was right next to the office and didn't have a site number on it.

Nice KOA, we stayed for one night on our way back to central Texas. We did laundry, showered, etc. We arrived late afternoon so we stayed put in the RV. Cable tv worked fine with a good number a channels and a good amount of shade around us. Unfortunately the pool was out of commission, but they told us this when we called ahead. Good one night stop. Our site was very long and level. We kept the toad connected annd still had space to park at least one more care if needed.

This park another great Arkansas State Park. Big open spaces, paved sites full hookups, lots of activities to choose from and close enough to Memphis for a day trip. Wildlife is everywhere, deer, racoons, hawks, etc. You could not ask for more. There is a lake fro boating and swimming however we didn't make it into the lake. We went into Memphis for the day, it's about an hour away. Lots of shade sites. Well keep park not trashy at all. Knowledgeable staff in the front office/registration and the camp store is pretty well equipped.

We've stayed here previously, about 5 or so years ago. There really are no other options that come close to Cherry Hill. Close to DC, with options from the park to shuttle in from the park. We drove into the train station without problems. Our site had shade morning and evenings before the sun went down. Navigating the park is easy enough. One of the largest on site stores I've seen. Golf carts are available if needed. We didn't really use any of the park amenities as we were in DC early in the day until late. Restrooms and showers were clean. We'll be back.

Yep, this place has just about everything you'd want in a resort/destination campground. When you see it on their website it's pretty close to what you get in the park, unlike some other sites. We stayed here while visiting Boston. There's not a lot to choose from in the area. Lots of workers running around all times of the day, and it shows, this place is very well manicured and clean. It's kinda hard to describe the feeling inside...kinda like a village where you feel "mostly" welcome. You have to punch a code to get in which is fine, then you have to punch a code to get out, which I thought was odd. Upon entering and exiting you drive past a booth, the worker inside watching you punch this code every time. Plenty of local shopping in the area. Good enough access to Boston. We stayed in a "Premium" site it was gravel with a concrete pad and picnic table. By the looks of it sites are all gravel, some were fairly unlevel...ours was okay. There are all kinds of campers around and kids everywhere, and with this combination comes lots and lots of campfires. Wifi is kind of a pain, it's free but you have to jump through a few registration hoops...even then the service is spotty at best. Mornings and evenings the wifi is super slow, prime time I guess. Concierge services were helpful. We have never been to Boston before and she gave us some pretty good tips based on the amount of time we were visiting. Restrooms and Showers were clean. Amenities in the park are what you are paying for, we didn't really use them. For the price I guess I'd ask for more shower facilities and less gravel, due to the dust. Not sure I'd stay here again just due to the fact we really didn't need all the bells and whistles.

We've stayed here numerous times, I only review once a year or so though. The location is the best in the city. Really close to downtown, friendly staff, well stocked store and really good Tex-Mex right across the street. The pool was closed for renovations. It's no surprise due to the number of folks here in the winter. Call ahead in the winter months, it is packed with snowbirds.

This place is divided into two campgrounds. One side has everything, the other side nothing. We only stayed here one night, so it was no big deal that there was nothing on our side, which was basically a field with hookups. We were on our way back from Boston to TX. No one in our party used the restrooms or showers, they were too far away. It looks like they are putting ups some buildings on the nothing side. Honestly there is an old barn and restrooms on the "nothing side". It is across the street from the main park. We went to the Natural Bridge, which is pretty amazing. Town has some grocery stores and small restaurants. This seems to be a destination park for locals. Lots of kids activities on the main side of the park. We were in site U124. We did drive through the other side of the park in our toad. There seemed to be some kind of family reunion of rebel flags and barbeque pits on Yogi Lane by the river. Lots of tents, jacked up trucks, canopy tents, etc. and open beer cans everywhere. Everyone looked like it was a party...at that point I was glad I was on the, "nothing" side.

I knew this was a parking lot going in. The one thing I didn't count on is this: There is a private tent camping area enclosed by a fence next to the restrooms/showers. It looked miserable in the 95-100 degree heat. They also use the facilities for everything. No need to memorize the security code to the restroom, the doors are all propped open by the campers all the time. I rarely found toilet paper and the showers were a step above a filthy. The sites are beyond close, our Honda CRV fit slid in next to us at an angle partially under the awning. Your are gonna see your neighbors every move, you are that close. Yes it's close to New York City, however the picture on their website is not what you see. It's a lot farther than that. The Statue of Liberty if slightly recognizable over the cars, buses, truck, boats, etc. The prices to get into the city are cheaper than a hotel. We were a group of 4 and it cost us $20.00 a day per person using Metro cards. You have to purchase a separate card to get into NY from NJ, they don't play well together. The Ferry across is $7.00 one way per person. Advertised on their flyer and website is a 10 minute 5 block walk...Nope. More like 25 minutes and 9 blocks, I counted. It's a safe enough walk, just not as close they are advertising. If you are RVing it's really the only choice. I've stayed in the city lots of times and hotels in NYC beat RVs every time. It's just not fun coming out of a Broadway show or shopping late knowing you have a 25 minute walk after all the subways back to your site. I mite stay here again, but just park the RV and get a room in the city. The traversing back and fourth is just too inconvenient in my opinion.

Right in the middle, Buffalo on one side, Niagara Falls on the other. We didn't stay in the park much during the day. In July it's pretty hot, but there appear to be lots of activities to keep kiddos busy. We did use showers/ restrooms and the pool in the evenings, and did laundry one night. Every thing was well kept. The pool could be larger or add another pool. Pool here stays crowded. Sites are level enough, gravel and grass with a fire ring and picnic table. This is another one of those campgrounds where everyone seems to need a campfire, even in July, meaning it gets smokey when that starts. Trip in Niagara was perfect as is to Buffalo. We even went into Buffalo to see the Rolling Stones one night. Park store has enough to keep you there. Great park overall, only thing I'd change is the pool, add a larger 2nd pool.

We are not familiar with the area at all, being from Texas. After some investigating around we chose this park for a few nights on our way to Boston. It appears to be a destination park for lots of folks and does have quite a few residents. We weren't here on a major holiday, but judging by the weekend crowd I imagine this place gets packed. We drove into Pittsburgh two days which was fine. The park is in the middle of nowhere, but the drive is scenic. All facilities worked fine. We stayed in the Red Carpet Row Section. (back-in) Really nice patio and fire ring up against a backdrop of huge trees and creek running behind. Our GPS did not have an optimal route into the park, but the GPS on our phones did. The drive into the park isn't all that treacherous. We have a 37' motorhome pulling a Honda CRV and did fine. As far as kids activities, they have it all. We did rent a boat one day and zip around the lake. There are very few grocery options around or gas stations. Owner/Manager/staff are very nice and helpful. Great place for families and kids or travelers like us. Only downfall to me was, seems everyone started making campfires around 4:00. Some smoke lingers around.

Everything was pretty typical of a KOA campground. Park is large, kind of divided into two parks. We were in site 66 across from the pool. We usually don't stay in the parks much, we get there then go to the city or for other events. The pull throughs up by the pool alternate left and right, meaning you face your neighbor. I'm not a big fan of this type of layout, especially when the person facing has multiple dogs running around in your site, or the smoke from their pit is blowing directly under your awning. They experienced quite a bit of rain recently and the one thing our neighbors weren't going to be excited about when they got up is how the sewers backed up into their site. There was a flood about a month before we got there so maybe that attributed to it. Over nice park, wifi signal was fair, restrooms and showers were clean and sites were fairly level and the pool was cold. Easy access to Indianapolis as well.
