We stayed here two weeks and enjoyed it a lot. The Good Sam discount didn't apply to the weekly rate, but the price was good without it. The staff was great. There are lots of long-term campers here and we were put in the "overflow section"....which turned out to be fine. It was level, and was backed up to a large lawn and great views of the bayou (birds, boats going by, etc.) The shower/toilet building is older but kept very clean and everything works. Our only complaints were with the terrible Wi-Fi. It was always weak or no signal at all, and dropped out constantly. An added bonus was the cafe that was on site. They had good prices and good food. Most of the raves were for the breakfast items and the Thursday night steak special. We will definitely be back next year. Watch out for the biting gnats, however!

We camped here in March so it wasn't a busy time of year; we had the place to ourselves. The sites are surprisingly close together and we couldn't find a single one that was level. They are in definite need of additional gravel or something so they aren't totally muddy. The only ones with concrete pads were the handicapped ones. This is a great location with lots of birds and wildlife on the lake and in the woods. I won't return, however, unless they do some improvements. Note: They advertise a dump station but it is not marked and is not close to the campground -- although the map shows that it is. The map was mistaken in several other ways as well. Also, the water was shut off for the winter, so all we could access was electric. There was no shower house and the vault toilets were very dirty. Disappointing.

We give this high marks as a very scenic spot on the banks of the Mississippi, with nice level spots, not too close together, full hookups and wonderful little bathroom-showers (very clean) that were toasty warm on a cool morning. The roads are unfortunately dirt with some gravel, so we had to deal with quite a bit of mud, but many of the sites are paved pads (snow thaw and spring rains this month). I especially appreciate the complimentary laundry...nice! The office stays open til 6 pm and the staff was super nice. It would be nicer if they had a few more offerings for sale in the office as it's a remote location and the nearest grocery is some distance away. They have several benches set up near the river bank for convenient viewing....with firepits nearby. This is a great place to camp short time or longer periods. We'll be back.

This is a comfortable, clean and friendly RV park in the Houghton Lake Area, and easy access on/off the freeway. We only spent a couple nights but enjoyed the pool, the well-kept dog run, the fun children's playground and more. Our site was shady and level....a big plus. There are several folks here who stay all summer, apparently, and the staff offers extra services for them and for us, like emptying their tanks, delivering fire wood to the RV site. Great place! The price reflects the Good Sam discount.

I've heard about this campground for years...mostly from folks who like the fact that they can float the river and campout from the same site/company. This is a very large outfit in a beautiful valley on the side of the Huzzah river, but (would't you know) the river is very, very low this time of year (and not enough rain this summer). I enjoyed the beauty of the my surroundings, but felt the owners could up their game a bit. The RV sites are just grass with a bit of gravel, and we were in a lot of muddy puddles when it rained. The sites are not very level. They had very little in the way of shower/toilet facilities, relying on port-a-potties spaced about the grounds. The showers were very primitive and cost $.50 to use. All in all, it's a perfect spot if you want to float, kayak or raft the river. I probably won't go back for just camping, however.

I find this to be a top-notch spot located about 200 miles south of Houston. We stopped for a one-night stay on our travels through the state and enjoyed the beautiful grounds, and an especially nice pool/clubhouse/bathhouse/laundry area (and exercise room). There are gas grills at a couple spots near the clubhouse, plus an excellent fenced area for the dogs to run. The WiFi is working well but there is no cable offered. We've picking up quite a few channels with our antennae, however. I believe they offer dish TV as well. The only slight negative is the abundance of gravel throughout with not much paved or grassy area. Our price reflects the Good Sam discount.

This was a "surprise" campground. We weren't expecting this near-Houston location to be so nice and so well-kept. It was quite full but we were able to stop of the I-10 highway and found a site available. The check-in (after hours) was easy. There's plenty of green space for dog walking and the entire grounds is paved or grassy. Nice! The staff was very helpful with our questions the next morning, and we were extremely impressed with the showers and pool area. They even offered me free coffee when I checked out. I will definitely be back. Our price reflects the Good Sam discount.

This campground is different from the "by-the-highway" type we usually stay in. This campground is tucked away near a bayou and very out of the way which made for wonderful stargazing and lots of quiet. We didn't get to enjoy the pool but it looked very nice. The bath house was clean and had nice space. Much better than the tiny, cramped showers or toilets we sometimes find. Our price reflects the Passport America discount.

This is very, pretty and peaceful setting just on but set back from the highway. We're just passing through, but it appears it's a convenient location to beaches, shops, etc. The sites are really nice. well-manicured, slabs for picnic tables, flowers and grass at the site, level, etc. I wish we had time to enjoy the lovely pool and dog walk and more. My only negatives were the price and the bathrooms were in need to updating. I would come again in spite of that just because of the wonderful beauty and layout of the campground. The staff was most friendly and helpful.

What a beautiful park! The campground in this park is a bit difficult to find and about 5 miles from the entrance gate, but what a pretty drive through the grounds. There is a lake close by the campground, but didn't have time to drive to there. We spent one night on our travels through the area and found the park quiet and very pretty. The layout is quite different, but there is ample space between sites, It is nice for privacy and maneuvering. The big "downside" was the toilet/bath facility. It's definitely past due for an upgrade or fixing up. I'd love to stop here again when I have time to hike, bike, fish, golf, etc. Very nice!

This is not the best place to stay. There are many beat up, old campers on site and kinda trashy, but is a easy in and out for travelers heading north or south on the interstate highway. Located close the on/off ramps and in the middle of lots of restaurants, etc. It was unfortunately waterlogged when we arrived (couple days of heavy rains, apparently) and we were directed to a site full of mud and giant puddle of water. It looked like better, drier sites were available but not offered to us. This is apparently an older park. The bath house is older, but was clean and warm. There are several other RV parks on down the interstate a bit further south. Next time, we'll use them instead.

What a beautiful park! What a "find" for us. It's kinda hard to get to the information on the web, but so glad we did. The developed site we had was right on by the water (stream) and teaming with wildlife. The staff was very helpful and courteous with check-in and check-out (volunteers). I love that the canoe rental is onsite. The sites had fire-rings, but there was no firewood for sale in the area, only at the park. Unfortunately, their price was a dollar per log. Kinda high, I felt. The doggie park is quite new and very, very nice. We had sufficient space between sites and no tight turns to get in and out of the park. We will return and do more hiking, kayaking and more. One suggestion: add some food items for sale at the office, e.g. marshmallows, cold drinks, charcoal.

There aren't very many choices in this area of the Florida coast, but I'll try to find something better next time. This KOA is right on a busy highway and is a bit tricky to get in and out. The road noise and a train track across the highway affords little peace and quiet. The staff is wonderful and accommodating. The bath/shower rooms (only two, however) are wonderful. The WiFi was difficult, with a weak signal, so had lots of trouble getting online. The cable, however, was fine and pretty good selection of channels. The biggest negatives for us is that it is almost all gravel with very little "green". The closeness of sites is an issue. There were even rigs parked in the middle of the gravel parking lot. And, the road noise. They are close to the beaches and restaurants, museums, etc, so that's a big plus.

What a great place to stay if you're interested in exploring the area or driving into New Orleans (French Quarter for example). The sites are level and are not too close together. We really appreciated the nice restrooms and showers, plus the laundry room offered free laundry. Unfortunately, the mosquitoes were so bad we couldn't stay outside, especially at night. Maybe if it hadn't been too hot for a fire we might have "smoked them away". There was no or poor signage for the pool so we never did find it (and not sure if there was an extra charge since it is a wave pool). This is a nice place with a nice price...we recommend.

We stopped here on trip to Texas and do recommend it. I was concerned about noise as it is very close to I10, but it was fine. The bathhouse with shower and laundry and media room (cable TV) is all new and quite well appointed. We walked to the end of our row to the dock on the bayou which also had a walking path along the water. Nice! There is great cajun food and music within 5 minutes. A great place to stay a while or just passing through. We took the eco tour of the swamp and loved it!
