We stayed three days to do a photo shoot. The dunes are beautiful and kids have fun sliding down the larger ones, some as tall as 50-70 feet. Colorful sunsets and sunrises. Check-in clerk was a little snippy but got the job done. She assigned a site where our coach step buried itself a few inches in the sand when we opened the door, although we were as close to the utilities as we could get. They have "eyebrow" type pull throughs, most of which appear to be a little short for larger rigs. We saw a big rig in one, but it was actually taking up 2 sites. We switched to a back-in which was paved, level, and of adequate width. Utilities worked well. We had no problem with Verizon signal strength for phones but did not have adequate strength for the Mi-fi. We had a concern about the metal archway over the entrance, since there were no signs giving its height and the office didn't know the minimum clearance, although they advised they had had 18 wheelers and large tour type buses go through with no problem. Be advised you will have sand everywhere in the RV, but hey, its the sand hills, so expect to clean after you leave. Although easy on and off and close to I-20, it is quiet. Our site had a metal table covered by a metal awning. We enjoyed the stay.

Reservation system a little funky, we send in a request and they call you back. Our call wasn't until the next day, and although the office was closed when we arrived, our registration packet, with site number and directions to it, was ready and waiting. Sites are long, adequately wide, and level. Utilities readily accessible and worked good, although we couldn't get the cable to connect. There are several over the air channels available and a clear view for satellite. Only digs are some potholes in interior roads and road noise during the day, although quiets down at night. Wi-Fi worked! Nice little concrete patio with a table. Those coming from the east need to be careful about dragging when turning across Amarillo Blvd. We didn't but there are numerous scrape marks where others have. All in all a good commercial park. We would return.

We have stayed here several times as a convenient overnight stop. It is right on I-20 and easy to reach travelling either east or west. Although right on the highway, road noise was not bothersome. As typical with KOA, sites are crowded and it is pricey for what you get, but outweighed by convenience. Wi-Fi was useable, albeit a little slow. Most likely we will stay again.

Really nice commercial park. Easy to find if you follow their directions, and far enough off the interstate so there is no road noise. Very quiet at night. Check-in was friendly, fast, and easy. Escort to the site which was long and level. We were in a premium site which had nice separation from the neighbors. Utilities worked fine and were easily accessible. Garbage pick-up in the morning. Couldn't get connected to the Wi-Fi but may have been our problem not theirs. Many channels on cable TV and no obstructions for satellite. We would happily return.

Its scenic, with lots of trees and a small pond, the price is right, and its convenient to the city, but that's about it. When checking in, we were given a card with our site number and instructions the campground was 2 miles down the winding, narrow road. No map, nothing else. The entry is tight, the roads are narrow, and only one dumpster, a fair walk away. Our site was okay although fairly narrow. It was level and utilities easy to reach.The trees were too thick to get satellite, but there were several TV stations obtained over the air. When leaving, the gate attendants had to come out to guide us forward to get the exit gate to activate, as we could not see the bar from the driver's seat. Not worth returning to.

For a commercial park, this place is very good. Nicely separately sites with a little grass and small trees between. Full hook-ups well sited and easy to use. All sites are pull through, wide and level. Hard to believe, but Wi-Fi is very good and reasonably fast except during peak times. Downtown, stores, and restaurants not far away on good roads. Many cable TV channels. Nice little concrete patio with a table. We would return.

Wonderful long, pull through site, although a little un-level. We had a mess up with Reserve America (our mistake--always check your reservation dates carefully--we didn't), so only able to stay one night. Rangers were very helpful giving a list of all other nearby parks with telephone numbers and called another state park for us. Hey, its February, everything is booked. Very private, large site with patio area with trees and bushes between the next site. Paved walkway right to the beautiful, white sand beach. Utilities worked fine, although no sewer at site, handy dump station on the way out. We would stay again.

Wow! This is what a park should be. Long, level, paved, back in site, with good separation and all hook-ups easily accessible. An asphalt patio with a grill and table. All facilities nearly new and sparkling clean. A laundry room to beat all others we have seen. A nice little camp store. A huge park, so bring your bicycles. Beach is only 1 1/2 miles away and you get a free pass to a long pier. Many restaurants and stores nearby. All kinds of camping available from primitive to cabins. Nearby history at Fort Morgan and Fort Gaines (after a ferry ride). While a little pricey, you get more than your pay for. Only downer was a elderly, grumpy lady at check-in, but she was just at the end of a busy day, so easy to overlook. Friendly campers. Gladly stay again.

Used the online reservation system which worked well. Entrance is a little tight for larger RVs but manageable. No sewer and dump not accessible from either side of rig and was on the wrong side for us when leaving. Sites are paved but narrow and interior roads are narrow. One long 5th wheels across from us had a very difficult time getting parked. We had to be very careful backing our 36' class A into our site while missing a site sign on the opposite side of the road. Be sure to have a long water hose as all utilities are at the rear of the site. Sites are level and have a picnic table and fire ring. Park is convenient to New Orleans if you don't want to stay in town. Not much in nearby little town of Violet. Just south on highway is a ferry ($1 for cars) to the south shore town of Gretna where more stores are. Were going to use the camp showers but floor was covered with dead bugs and curtains were broken or missing. We would stay elsewhere next time.

A large, pretty nice state park. Be sure to follow the directions on the park's web site, not your GPS. Check-in was fast and friendly. Full hook-ups were easily accessible. Modern restrooms and showers. Cozy laundry with 4 washers and dryers ($ 1.25 per load). Only complaint is that the sites are too crowded and interior roads are narrow. Sites are paved, reasonably long, level and have a concrete picnic table. The camp store, rec room, and water park were closed since it was February. While we were there for three nights, there was no trash pickup from the nearby trash barrel. Also apparently, people are allowed to park anywhere, as pickups and cars were scattered randomly around the area, on the grass, etc. However, given all, we would return if in the area.

This park is overrated. IMO it's nowhere near an 8.5. While sites are paved, they are short and there is not adequate space to park the toad. Hook-ups are located at the rear of the site and you will need at least 25-30 feet of sewer and water hose to reach them. Interior roads are narrow. Restrooms and showers are located at the entrance and a fair walk from most sites. There are a few pull throughs but most sites are back-in and close together. There is a small grass strip between sites. No cable but a few over the air channels. Clear view for satellite. The only attractions I see for this park is if you wish to fish. Fishing, no license required, is free for campers. We will not return.

Although we had to wait a while until the office opened over the lunch hour, check was easy and fast. Sites are a little narrow, but all are pull through. This state park has sewer which most do not although sewer inlet is 3-4 inches above ground level which makes dumping a little inconvenient. Only 30 amp in our site but utilities are easily accessible. Restrooms and showers, while a little dated, were clean. Sites are well separated and level. Many walking trails and good birding opportunities. We have been here before and will return.

Very nice commercial park with all the amenities. Only complaints are its 15 miles outside the city and is pricey. However, it is very clean, has excellent utilities and full hook-ups. Adequate space between sites with nice grass area in between.

Date of Stay:

One of our favorite state parks. Easy and friendly check-in. On line reservations are handy and fast. Paved, long pull-through with easily accessible utilities. Covered concrete picnic table. Very few trees, but the lake has some water in it for the first time in a long time. Several over the air TV channels available as well as clear view of sky for satellite. Maybe not real scenic but some deer wandering through campground.

Date of Stay:

Easy on and off of I-10. Check in was friendly and fast. The site was level and hook ups easily accessible. However, we couldn't get the cable TV to get anything but snowy reception. As we just there overnight, it wasn't worth checking into. There was no problem getting satellite reception. The site had a nice, high fence on one side, so the separation from the neighbors, except the one next to you, was good. A few plants and small trees add to the ambience. Overall, a nice park, albeit a little pricey.
