Quite a nice park. A big park, wide roads, large sites. Facilities appear new and are kept very clean. Looks like most sites are far enough off the road noise wouldn't be a problem.

Date of Stay:

I'm not getting the ratings. Its a perfectly acceptable place to stay but exceptional? Wide graveled roads, pretty level fair sized graveled sites in a fenced and gated area with a few small scrawny trees scattered throughout. Friendly staff, convenient to grocery and restaurants and the highway but far enough off you don't get noise. Wifi so slow as to be unusable for much but email. Good Verizon 4g signal.

Date of Stay:

$10 includes metered electric, our promotional rate for a month was $7/night. Yes its old and developed before RVs got big and heavy. Narrow roads, and smaller grass sites (with a few exceptions) and its flat South Texas, so drainage isn't great. I can see where reviews would definitely be affected by how much moisture there is. We were fortunate in sunny South Texas living up to its name. But its an incredibly friendly park (including staff), and the quantity, quality and diversity of activities is amazing. If you can get beyond the age of the buildings in which activities are housed, most we saw (fitness, sewing, woodshop, stained glass, lapidary, silversmith billiards, etc etc etc) seemed very well equipped and supported by participation, volunteer leaders and management. So a 9 for that. Now why in the world they aren't putting in concrete slabs faster (or even graveled) I don't know. Its inexpensive and they get a 16% or so premium for the ones they have. I can deal with narrow roads but sinking into dirt is a real problem. So a 5 for the site and 8 overall (no doubt that would have been different if I'd had to put off departure or be towed out).

Fine park. Well laid out pretty much level gravel sites, paved roads. Well kept up. Ok wifi, cable was fuzzy when we were there but as it was just for the night I didn't try to deal with it. The entrance from the highway is getting pretty beat up but I don't know if thats the park or city/state responsibility. Very personable owner/manager?

Date of Stay:

Weekly rate. Very good park in a generally great location. Central to most things you might want to access in College Station. Well kept up. Pretty much level concrete pads. OK wifi, need a box (provided) for cable, solid electric, good water pressure. Very friendly, helpful staff. I've got my own bath/shower but no laundry is a minor downside for us. Then there are the specifics of a generally great location. The park wasn't done any favors when the overpass was put in. The only direct access is to the west and north (take 2818 not 6). Watch your gps, google puts the entrance on the highway not the frontage road. Once there, access to the University / Bush Library is straightforward but getting to/from anywhere else in town is not. Small price to pay for the benefits tho.

Nice enough place. Small park with most spaces occupied long term. Gravel roads and sites. Good power and water. Very reasonably priced ($1/$1) laundry.

Date of Stay:

Very nice park, well kept up, and laid out. Everything very clean and neat. Fairly unique and picturesque the way they've adapted the (as the name indicates) old cotton gin. Its pretty much going to be the best looking park in this stretch of 287. The only downside is the proximity to the road and rail. Now we didn't have an issue with our white noise machine going but then we're well insulated and double-paned. I could see where weekender type RVs might be bothered but they will give you ear plugs. Its ok to stop over for a night but they way the have it set up I could see where it would be really good for smaller rallys.

Date of Stay:

Easy in / easy out for big rigs because its a well laid out, big gravel lot right off the highway. Road / rail noise wasn't bad. Don't set up too far forward in the site unless you want to use an extra length of sewer hose. Not real scenic but a good place to spend a few days while visiting the area. For overnighting you might as well use Walmart if you don't need hookups, it is a big (paved) lot too. I only got 1 bar of 4g, slipping to 3g on occasion.

Date of Stay:

Got there at the end of the season, which may affect my evaluation - lots of open space with the vacant sites, not a lot of people creating noise or litter etc. But seemed to be a very well kept up, very clean park. And the owner seemed to be quite adamant about the rules. Probably the best option in town. Didn't have a problem with road or train noise. Sites are graveled but the gravel portion is quite narrow, you got to hit it right to have all your tires on gravel. With rain I can see why ruts are left at corners. I'd stay again.

Date of Stay:

The park itself (common areas etc) appears well maintained and clean if old. Unfortunately, the same can't be said about some sites and, as noted, most sites are occupied by long-termers. Quiet for our weekday stay. Perhaps with little turnover there is no need for staff to be responsive via phone or office presence - in fairness, my call re: availability was returned after a few hours. Older park with a somewhat cramped layout but I've had much smaller sites and the road junctions are big enough for big rigs. Some sites could be a leveling challenge. All in all, its acceptable for a short stay. Especially considering what else is available this side of Denver and the price.

It is still well kept up and great staff. Convenient to I70/US287 for overnights. Dog park added since our last time. Good Wifi. I thought big rig maneuvering room was OK but maybe if they're full it gets problematic.

Date of Stay:

Nor that much to look at but its convenient for passing through. Level sites, functioning hookups. Roads gravel and not too rough. Pool looked nice but didn't use. Couldn't get wifi to work but had a good Verizon signal so didn't bother. When the wind is right you can definitely tell what the big economic activity is. I think its a bit pricey for what you get with a perfectly good Walmart in town (I gotta get an inverter for this new residential refrigerator).

Not too impressive to look at but if you want 50A hook-ups for a night convenient to the highway it works. Graveled pull-thrus, some very long, ours was level. Graveled roads needed grading. With the plains spring weather rolling through it was nice to know they were keeping on eye on it and a shelter was available. Kinda pricey for what you get but it seems competitive in the area.

Date of Stay:

Good value for the price. If you don't need to be on the river this is a great place - nice landscaping, well laid out, good roads, good facilities. Sites are level concrete pads - our back-in held the motorhome and toad but I would have liked a few more feet to spare. Then again, if it had been a big deal I'm sure we could have changed sites - they weren't crowded. Width-wise there was ok separation between sites. Wifi also ok - near as I could tell (remember the not crowded part). Good thing - Verizon data was marginal.

Date of Stay:

Not many options on this stretch of I-10 and great for seeing the Caverns (which you should do as long as you've made the trip from the Interstate). Nice, quiet country setting. Electric boxes look pretty sad but tested and worked ok. Marginal Verizon data signal, ok voice service. Obviously developed before todays big rigs became commonplace with very close site spacing but parking is doable - even though every single post protecting the utility hookups from too tight a right turn was displaced/gouged. The level of difficulty experienced will likely depend on how many, how long and how considerate others are. Me - I'd shoot for being there as early as I could to have as much manuever room as possible.
