July, 2006 -
We stayed here for two nights. Seems a new owner has taken over the site in the last three months and lives on site. First let me cover the minuses: no picnic table at our site - had to ask to get one, sites are small - anything over 30 foot with side slide outs will encroach on the adjacent sites // lockboxes were an inconvience but not a major problem // wireless web - first connection comes through real good but quickly deteriorates down to 1 mbps - dropped occassionally // no fire rings (we both like to have a small fire at nite) nor were any fires allowed Neutral: located approx 1 mile from the river you can definitely smell it (my wife at first thought it was a sewer smell, but we determined it was the river and not sewer - the owner strictly enforces the closed sewer connections // saw a couple who had to purchase a new connection because of leakage - Walmart is maybe a mile to the north) // there is a vet's office on the south end of the park - trees separate them- didn't really have a problem with barking dogs and we were very close to it - next to last site at that end of the park Plus: Since we travel with our aussie shepard mix (60lbs) she definitely is a consideration. The park offers a fenced dog park area where you can let your dog run loose // while didn't use it (kids are grown) there was a nice playground for children // close to casinos, shopping and dining (able to take a back route to avoid having to hit the freeways) without being right in the middle of them // pool was nice and well kept, had a deck area for sunning (if you are into that). All in all I would recommend this park with just a few considerations. One thing I learned talking with the new owner, the site is used by many of the pipeline companies to house their surveyors a week at a time (might be reason for lockboxes). Probably had 8 to 10 there when we were and things were quiet and nice and everyone was friendly. We camped at Magnolia RV Park Resort in a Travel Trailer.
