Rate reflects military discount for 1 of the 2 nights we stayed, very helpful staff, lots of trees/shade (we were still able to get satellite TV but many sites likely would not), grass between sites, tables at some sites, sewer hookup had to be improvised due to landscape timber preventing a downward run of the hose as normally hooked up (it appeared most sites would not have this problem) , free WIFI was TengoNet requiring personal info registration w/Tengo ...I never use Tengo due to problems every time I used them over several years in the past.

     

I-35 RV Park

Waco, Texas

Date of Stay:

This was our first visit here, we were here with a small rally group. A previous review that stated "There is no natural shade anywhere" must have been somewhere else. We saw plenty of trees and shade, and requested a site with afternoon shade so we could gather the group there. We used one of their buildings one night. The free breakfast was great, with several selections from fruit to eggs & sausage to biscuits & gravy. Access to the park was complicated a bit by construction on the access roads on both sides of the highway but we had no trouble getting into or out of the park. We found on arrival that they do not accept credit cards (we saw/heard no mention of that in printed materials or in our pre-rally planning) but they do take personal checks and there is an ATM in the office area. We would stay here again.

Date of Stay:

Excellent utilities, wifi good but too often got "website not available" errors when Vz hotspot would work great. Nice trees & grass along with picnic table at site makes very pleasant stay. Spacious sites, easy big rig access in and out. Nice dog run area. We much prefer this park to the newer, higher priced gravel-yard parks on the West side.

Date of Stay:

Pretty average RV park, but quite pricey. There is a 15% lodging tax added to their quoted rates. Our $50/night cost was after the 10% Good Sam discount. Our site was 30a only and the sewer connection was quite high off the ground, preventing us from connecting as we normal do as poop don't flow uphill. We found out only later that they do have some 50a sites, and observed that not all sewer connections were high like ours was. Wish we had known that on check-in ...site 18 should be marked for trailers or high gas rigs only. The utilities were good/reliable, but there was NO BREAKER on the electric outlet. Water pressure was excellent. Free WIFI was reliable. Trash cans at each site was nice, and they were serviced daily. We enjoyed our stay, but would probably look for other options on a future visit. We had to laugh when we noticed the nearby Motel 6 was advertising a cheaper rate than this RV park, and they include linens and maid service!! Our next stop 60 miles away in Albuquerque was in a slightly nicer park with better utilities at half the price!! Maybe next time we will just do day trips to Santa Fe.

Easy access, large sites w/concrete pad & picnic table. Utilities good although a bit worn. Free Wi-Fi was not visible to my computer.

Date of Stay:

This is a new campground (Aug 2014) w/packed gravel sites beside older patio slabs. Utilities are at rear against the 8' wide pad making a very tight turn into the site. In addition to the RV sites, there is a lot of tenting space. Owners live apx 1/4 mile away and work elsewhere during the day. CALL AHEAD for space & to get utilities unlocked. Owners are very helpful/attentive and have plans to add a bathhouse/laundry and more sites. Right across the road from the head of the Swayback Trail for hiking/biking.

Date of Stay:

New in 2013. 16 concrete road & sites with concrete parking for second car, remaining 4 sites are dirt/gravel. 20th St ABSOLUTELY SHOULD NOT BE USED for RV in/out as it is VERY tight with low trees. Enter/exit via gravel drive from 22nd St ...and 22nd is by far the best way to get there from 22nd anyway. The park is oriented toward long term, but owner let us stay for 4 nights when he learned we were there for a funeral. We got the only vacant site, and it was being held for someone not due to arrive until after we would be gone.

Date of Stay:

Rate reflects 15% Escapees discount. Nice concrete pads. Free wifi works. Good utilities. Not a fancy place, but a good decent park. We were here one night, and will stay again.

Date of Stay:

Above rate ($27.50) reflects 15% discount on nightly rate for Escapees RV Club members. Ten or so pull-through sites immediately behind office are very nice concrete w/nice grass. There is not much other grass in the park. Nice meeting facilities. Free WIFI worked very well, as did the water & electric. We did not connect to sewer as we were there only for two nights. We would stay again.

Date of Stay:

Above rate reflects rally rate for small group. Nice small meeting room and picnic facilities. Careful site selection is necessary as most sites are severely nose-low. Utilities are good but are at extreme rear of sites. Great for trailers, poor for motor homes. Sites appear to be gravel, but require jack pads for motor homes to prevent sinking into the ground. Verizon signal was poor and no voice service, but data service worked in limited ways. The park's free WiFi signal was strong, but worked poorly when at all. Best part of the park was the herd of deer and small flock of guinea hens that roam the park with little fear of humans.

     

3G RV Park

Post, Texas

Date of Stay:

The pull-throughs here are end to end, but there is room beside the front rig for the rear rig to pull around IF the neighbor's car is not blocking. Utilities in excellent condition, free Wi-Fi worked great. Good access and exit. Saw no bathhouse, but we use our own anyway. Owner/host is off-site but phone numbers are on each electric box and he responded quickly to our call. We would stay here again.

Date of Stay:

Above rate reflects rally rate for 5 nights. 31 back-ins, 19 pull-throughs, 6 cabins, nice and well-manicured gravel sites, enclosed pavilion for groups, free Wi-Fi did not work for us (connected initially, then it said connection cancelled due to slow speed), our Verizon 4g hotspot worked great, we were directly East of the horses with winds out of the West and we never had any unwelcome smells. We would stay here again.

Date of Stay:

Rate is weekly rate of $125. Best site we have had here is approx 70 ft long, relatively level pull through. Friendly folks. New bathhouse/laundry building. However, our 50a power sagged badly (as low as 102a) at times (don't run coffeemaker & toaster at same time). Sewer connection is at the far front of site and connection to provided 4" pvc sewer pipe is not possible w/normal equipment PLUS it ran uphill, very low water pressure at times, free WIFI virtually unusable.

Date of Stay:

Good Sam rate $25.50/night. Just off I-20, exit 77. Looks like relatively new park sculpted out of rolling, wooded terrain. Sites fairly level. Many have tables. Decent gravel roads and sites. Pond in campground with resident ducks. Info says "WiFi hotspot" but we saw no evidence; it may be in office area near entrance. Large cleared area on top of hill near office may be for future campsites? That would be great for overnighters. We would stay here again.

Date of Stay:

Rate above is at monthly w/senior or military discount. Very peaceful location w/good, level asphalt sites (back-in only) and roads. Good city water with slightly low pressure. Very good electric. Heavy leaf fall: a leaf blower is very handy here for clearing your site and also for clearing the slide tops before departing. (Very congenial camp host keeps vacant pads cleared, but we prefer more than just the pad cleared). Satellite TV is possible with careful site selection and/or a mobile dish. Good over-the-air TV reception. Good Verizon 4g signal. Central bathhouse is nothing fancy, but is clean and nicely heated. Squirrels and deer are seen almost daily. Tables, grills, and fire rings at sites. We will stay again.
