This is a very large, gated, ($6.00) park on both sides of Bentsen Palm Dr. Office is on the left side. Park is mostly park models or permanent RV's. We did not know until arrival that they only accept cash or check. It is a very friendly community and seemed accepting of new arrivals. Lots are decently separated with grass which needed mowed when we got to our site. After a few days ask a neighbor how often they mowed only to find out we were responsible for our yard. You can borrow mower from maint. Water pressure was adequate. Laundry on west side was nice. Wash $1.50 and Dryers were .25 for 7 mins. Cable was grainy and we used our antenna most of the time. WIFI was very sporadic. They say they are putting in new underground cable/wifi. Orange trees everywhere. If we were to stay any longer we would have looked elsewhere.

Park is clean, roads are gravel and sites are concrete. That said, we could not put our awning out because it would have hit the coach next to us. There was about 4.5 - 5 ft. between our coach slides. I'd refuse site F-13 if you plan to stay here although there seemed to be a lot of them close together. Fortunately we didn't have anyone on the other side of us. We had to put our front jacks as high as they would go to get level front to back. It made the coach so high a worker brought us a wooden pad to put under our portable step so we could get in and out. Obviously this is something they are aware of and must happen often. There is a patio but was not usable because of our and neighbors slides. No picnic table. No room. Wifi was not good but that could have been due to weather.

Staff was excellent. We were stopped in Texarkana while hurricane Patricia tore across Texas. They continued to hold our reservation and move the days as we waited. Park is older with lots of oak trees, which are pretty, but this time of year they pelted our coach all night. Park layout seemed confusing but we were escorted to our location. We are over 50' with tow vehicle so we were put on two sites.

Right off I-30 with some noise but not enough to cause sleep loss. Lots are angled and if your neighbor parks correctly you can't see in their home or they in yours. Utilities are all placed close together on a concrete pad. Parking area and lanes are large stone which was good because we were here during hurricane Patricia and we only saw a few puddles where it didn't drain. Small trees that will someday blossom into good shade but park is very open presently. Park was totally renovated by present owner but we understand new owners will take over very soon. Husband loved showers and laundry room was excellent. No cable but we picked up several stations with antenna. We would stay here again if ever in the area.

Very small park that at one time was in the country. City came to it. New owners have had 4 years and have done some nice improvements. Fuel, restaurants, Lowes between hwy. and campground. Water pressure is awesome. Hubby took a shower in their showers and was overjoyed by the shower head. If you are using your antenna don't expect any national channels. We picked up 16 with good reception but they were all food, religion and Spanish. Our site was pull thru with adequate space between. They do share electric with one 50/30 in each box. We would stay here again in a heart beat.

Date of Stay:

Busy with lots of seasonal people and Halloween weekend. Pull thru site was very tight with a tree on right which we came close to hitting with our awning. Left side was camper and their utilities. Gentleman had to move his golf cart so we could make turn. Rate should be about half of what we paid. Utilities are spread out. We would not stay here again.

First impression when entering park is very good. Carryout/deli in office area, driving range and small pond for fishing/swimming. Arriving at our site we were not as impressed. Park is 90% seasonal and the places around us were not cleaned up before they left for season. Beer bottles, and other trash were left beside a tree on our site. Site is a corner lot so was roomy. The park was empty with only a couple seasonal still present. Water pressure is poor, no terrible. They have two pumps but not commercial size. Can't run water in two sinks at once. We used their showers because we couldn't get enough water pressure in ours to get wet. We have stayed in RV resorts with a lot of amenities for the price we paid here. They were told about trash but never came to pick it up. Kept our gray tank closed due to sewer odor. End of season and they haven't had their holding tank cleaned. We will not stay here again.

Where do I start. I always avoid staying in parks that haven't been reviewed within a year of our visit. Made an exception because we really needed someplace to stay on our way through area. I looked for the improvements mentioned in the last post but I can't find them. Called in advance for reservation and was told it was off season so rate would be 30.00. Gentleman who checked us in couldn't use credit card machine so I wrote a check. We requested a pull through with full hookup. We got water and electric. Good news site was relatively level. Also told the restroom/showers were closed because they just painted the floors. I can't begin to describe the permanent trailer and lean-to next door and I certainly can't write how my husband described it. My suggestion would be to find a WalMart to stay in.

Their website says their rates are $44.00-50.00, we paid Passport America 1/2 price rate of $30.00. This must be new math. Mostly seasonal park models or older trailers that have been there a good long time. Our site was wide and long enough to accommodate coach and car. Park was quiet but we were here after Labor Day so not a lot of seasonal people in park. Shower was clean and adequate but water pressure and temperature of water were terrible.

Don't let the trailer park you pass as you come up the entrance concern you. It is terrible but has no connection to the park. Park is run and owned by a young couple who say they are making improvements. Restroom/showers are older and small but work. .25 per 7 minutes. Used the laundry only because I needed to do two loads. The washer/dryers need a good cleaning and the cobwebs need to be cleaned out of the corners. Floor is unpainted concrete so made sure nothing hit the floor. Lots are grass and wide and didn't feel crowded over Labor Day weekend. The water slide that shows on the website doesn't look like it's been used in years. It's a quiet park even with Labor Day crowd. Close to Barre/Montpelier, Cabot Creamery, Quechee Gorge, Rock of Ages Granite quarry/factory. Enjoyed our stay and would stay again if in the area.

We had a dilemma on our reservation and they went above and beyond to accommodate us. Very nice couple own and run this small park. Restrooms are clean but small with no real privacy and no area to place clothes and towel, besides floor. Site was level with stone base and grass between lots. Very roomy as well. 17 miles to Watertown for groceries. View of sunsets over Lake Ontario are spectacular. If ever in the area again we would stay here.

Date of Stay:

This is exactly what the name says, a tent and trailer park. It is gravel roads and grassy lots. Sites seemed adequate in width but there weren't many here so we didn't have anyone around us. Inside staff were there to take your money. Gentleman who guided us to our site was friendly and accommodating. Stopped to check on us and see if we needed anything. Fire ring is the smallest I've ever seen. You could probably roast a marshmallow with the small fire it would create. It could be a beautiful park if they would cut down all the dead trees. It looks like a tree disease went through and killed a lot of them.

Date of Stay:

Nightly rate based on monthly stay. This is a very clean park with a nice pool, activities for kids and a fun site next door with mini-golf, go-carts and game room. We stay on the long term side so can't say much about the in/out area. Plenty of groceries, a mall with theater and a few big box stores. About 20 - 35 minutes to Toledo, OH. This was a very wet summer and we had water come to our fire ring a couple times, but we stayed dry. The owner is unbelievably unfriendly. He will look the other way rather than speak. Staff is moderately friendly. If you don't have a good antenna, digital tv or satellite you won't get tv.

Date of Stay:

This is a campground not an rv park. Sites are wide and angled so you are not looking in another coach. Lots of trees and our site was level. Water pressure is good. Plus on this park is its distance to Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge and beach. Wifi was good on our site.

Date of Stay:

Someone else said this was a work in progress. I think progress has stopped. They are building new cabins when they should be doing more in the rv sites. You must cross a ditch to get into sites and the culverts were not wide enough to make a turn with our coach. They had a storm just shortly before we arrived and it was very soft and tires sunk into ditch. It is just an open field with hookups. Privately owned by a young couple who were very nice. Cable reception was good.
