Well managed, beautiful and quiet campground. This campground is 10.6 miles off I-40 at exit 364 take ramp for TN-95 / US 321 to the SECOND Jackson Bend Rd. intersection turn right and go .5 mile to the park entrance. Good roads, good staff, level sites, nice views, quiet. We were high on the hill, great views, and beautiful site. We recommend and will stay there again.

Beautiful park with many lovely stone structures in a gorgeous setting on the bluff that overlooks the merge of three rivers (Brazos, Paluxy and Squaw Creek). There is direct access to the river and fishing, boating/tubing/rafting. Miles of walking and biking trails, a swimming pool, rec hall with pool tables, TV area, kitchen and card games, and five washers and dryers ($1.25) in the laundry room. Playgrounds and a children's rec hall with activities, even in the winter. There is a beautiful dining room/ restaurant that could handle 300 plus for a private function. (Except for private functions, the restaurant is only open in the summer time.) They have large and small cabins for family reunions and weddings. Roads are paved. Sites are level grass/dirt and were in perfect condition when we were there, but my husband prefers gravel or concrete for when it rains. Most sites are spacious, have a picnic table and at least one mature pine or pecan tree that is very tall (not a lot of ground shade.) No cable but Wi-Fi signal is strong. This is a gated, private membership park (with some affiliation with Coast -to-Coast Resorts) that does allow some non-members when space allows. We received our invitation with our purchase of a motorhome and really enjoyed our visit. Our saleslady, Janna, was charming and efficient, gave us a wonderful tour, and answered all our questions. We did not purchase a membership because we are not full-timers and spend most of our RV time in the parts of New England and Canada where there are no member resorts. (They do have resorts in Canada and New England - just not where we have friends or relatives.) We met folks who were members and full time RVers who rotate thru the member parks, save money and schedule their favorite sites (and seasonal activities) months in advance. They mentioned they love the staff and activities at the different resorts.

Lovely mountain farm and woods setting with horses and a fishing pond, this campground is home to Bluegrass Music Festivals on Memorial Day and Labor Day weekends. Owners were friendly, did offer to help us park. We had a back-in site on a hill side that sloped and we didn't have enough blocks to fully level. We did not use the bathrooms or showers.

Lovely, lovely park; spacious sites are well maintained with level, gravel pads. Park is convenient to I-81 yet far enough that road noise was not a problem (and we slept with the windows open). As others mentioned, many of the sites are occupied long term but the park is well managed and there was no noise or debris about. The park features a beautifully landscaped, two acre pond presided over by both white and black swans (it had been decades since I'd last seen a black swan) and Canada geese were migrating thru when we were there. The pond has catch-and-release fishing and there is a small playground nearby. The laundry has 3 and 3 washer/dryers ($1.50 each). We received 6 television stations over the air so we did not try the cable service. WiFi was fine for email/Facebook; we did not attempt to stream video. We did not use the bathrooms but I peeked in just for this review. Bathrooms were clean but, as other reviewers mentioned, there was no toilet paper. We definitely will stay here whenever we are in the area.

Charming park, clean and well maintained with excellent WiFi, easy on and off access to I-10, and nearby food and fuel. The elderly lady who manages this park is an absolute delight. We stay there whenever we are in the area.

Convenient, clean, well-managed, good wifi. We stayed there 4 days (visiting family for Thanksgiving) and will definitely stay there the next time we are in the area or even "just passing thru" for the night. Park is very convenient to I-35 but located down a slope/behind other buildings that muffle the highway noise. I did hear the trains that passed thru early in the morning, but I hear those anytime I'm in the area - even inside a house. WiFi was excellent!

Excellently managed and maintained park with amenities in a beautiful setting The park has pulls thrus that will accommodate large rigs, grass between sites and a nice mix of back-ends for longer term residents and a lovely tenting area. RV sites are level with "soft" pea gravel, trees, picnic tables and have excellent WiFi and cable. Charming and well-organized hosts provide impeccably clean and comfortable facilities that include a new swimming pool and playground, a large group gathering room, a good size laundry and dog park. Park is located in cuter-than-cute Alpine and is close to the Mystery Lights of Marfa and convenient for trips to Big Bend and the Davis Mountain.

Attractive, well maintained, very clean park, not a lot of shade, some highway noise. Excellent dog run/park. Immaculate bathrooms, showers and laundry facilities. Weak Internet and cable signal. Ask at the front desk to have the air-conditioning turned on in the exercise room. No pool but there is a hot tub. We've stayed there many times and will again.

We spent 4 nights there in late September. The weather was cool; we didn’t have the bedroom windows open and did not have any problems with the highway noise. Most of the sites are shorter than needed for our 40’ rig and its RAM 3500 crew cab so we really would have overhung our site if we had intended to just over-night and not unhitch. A few other campers did drop their dinghies or tow vehicles in “vacant” sites causing confusion for folks arriving later. Note that the sites around the store and office are only 30 amp sites. All the 50 amp sites are closer to the interstate. We would definitely stay there again but we will probably ask to park our truck in one of the many empty 30 amp sites.

Gorgeous views, clean and quiet, super nice owner and staff. Internet speed was excellent and free. Cedar Rail is located at the top of Raton Pass on I-25 north of Raton. We will camp here again!
