The rate reflects TT membership. There is only 30amp service. Some of the sites don't have sewer but they are rare. There is a dump station on site. The roads up to the park and in the park are very bad. I think that is to promote the 5mph speed limit (haha). They did work on the roads one day and I don't know if they are going to continue filling in holes in the rest of the park. There are a majority of sites that have nice shade which was great only being able to use one A/C and triple digit temps. They could do some more to clean up the place. Many spider webs around the buildings. We had quite a few attach to our trailer the 9 days we were here. Also there was a multitude of gnats which were very irritating getting in and out of the unit and cars. There is nothing in the area to do unless you utilize the Lake. The lake level was up which was really nice compared to lake levels in Texas in previous years. I'm not sure that we would be back due to the bugs unless we were just going to hang out. There are several yearly people here but not a large percentage compared to many other TT campgrounds. Our site was relatively level, not "too" close to the next guy and very long. We could get satellite reception for Direct and ATT had very good cell reception.

Right on the riverfront which is nice to watch the river traffic and the lit bridges at night. It is a concrete jungle though and a little warm. We enjoyed the overnight stay and would come again. The rate reflects Passport America and they take cash only.

We stayed in a 5th wheel. It was an overnight stop and we did not disconnect the truck. We were led to a large pull thru that was a gravel site. Not much shade but relatively level site. We wanted to go to Lambert's Restaurant and they came to the park to pick us up. The lovely woman in the office called them for us when we were ready to go eat. The restroom is a single shower but very large and very clean. The rate reflects AARP discount and we would definitely stay again if in the area. They also offer WIFI and cable TV at no additional charge. They also have a small laundry room.

The rate reflects Thousand Trails Membership. There was no additional charge for 50 amp service. This campground has 667 sites. Out of those, 454 are occupied or for sale seasonal sites. 48 sites are for tents and the balance of 165 are overnight or "premium" overnight sites. I believe the "premium" is with septic. Some of the overnight sites are pretty small and would not accommodate larger units. There are 22 larger pull-through sites. There is no shade in the larger area however the temperatures were in the 70s most of the time we were here. Plenty of shade trees in other areas. We camped in a 34' rigand had plenty of room in the pull-through section. I would stay here again.

The rate reflects Thousand Trails Membership. They only have 30 amp service so there is no up charge for 50 amp campers. This is a very clean park; however, the roads and some sites do get quite muddy if its rainy. There seems to be about 90% occupied with seasonal or annual campers. They are all well kept up sites. Not too many planned activities they just had one for the weekend. There are several self entertaining activities though such as the pool and I think they have mini-golf. The office closes quite early (about 5pm I believe) and if you arrive after that you have to raise someone from the front gate to let you in. The sign on the gate says to park in the parking lot for the night if you are a late arrival but I'm not sure if that is truly the case. There are limited pull thru sites. I would stay here again. Go visit the Rockford IL museum and take the tour of their old town. Check the internet to see if they have free Thursdays.

This is a nice little park. About 1/3 of the sites are full hook up, the rest are without sewer or for tents. The full hook up area is lightly shaded and gravel/grass for your site. There are many cement pads thru the park but none with full hook ups. Many of those sites are very nice, very shaded but if you want satellite reception you probably won't get it. Anything around the river is without sewer. They do have a dump on site and they also have a honey wagon. I would return again.

We were here for a Open Range Rally with 100 other units. We had a great time. The sites are pretty level and gravel. If it is raining don't go off the gravel it is very soft ground. That would be the only issue we encountered. There was a Large 5th wheel and a motor home that both had to be towed out of the site because they backed onto the grass.

The employees are very helpful and go out of their way to make your stay enjoyable. The Rate reflects Thousand Trails membership. We stayed in a 30 amp site so no additional charge was required. They will charge $3.00 a day for 50 amps. The sites are spacious and some are shady and some are not. Sites are gravel and relatively level. There are several pull-through sites. The only drawback to this park is the lack of bath houses. There is one in A section and one by the pool in section D. If you are in sections B or C there is none close by. I would stay here again.

The campground has no discounts, as it is a small park. All sites are pull-through. Rate reflects 30 amp electric and water. We stopped overnight and did not need sewer. They charge $35.00 for full hook up and they do have 50 amp. The camp hosts are very nice and helpful we enjoyed talking with them. Access to the camp is easy off and on from Interstate 86. I would stay here again.

The rate reflects Thousand Trails Membership for 50 amp service. This campground was getting ready to open for the Memorial Day season. There were not too many there other than the annuals but the closer the the weekend came the more packed it became, which is good for them. The pool was in great condition, they have activities planned and a very pleasant atmosphere.

The Rate reflects Thousand Trails Membership. This is a working farm and has the smells to go with it. This is not a bad thing. You get used to it very quickly and it was even in the 80's while we were there. Its fun having the animals close by. There are many animals to choose from and they have a petty zoo for the kids. Several babies were born while we were there. I believe later in the summer they have fresh vegetables available. The pool and some other things aren't open until Memorial Day but we don't use the pool anyway. The restrooms are typical Thousand Trails, generally clean but run down. The WiFi you have to pay for and out in the park the reception is pretty much nothing. Even being under a tower I had no reception until coming into the recreation center. Our cell reception was pretty bad also so I had a hard time being able to use my phone as a hot spot either (ATT). The recreation center has multiple flyers on activities in the area. The campsites are gravel and pretty level. The grounds are well kept up. There is adequate space between sites.

The "season" for pool and activities doesn't start until Memorial Day weekend but everything in the park was in very good and clean condition (the pool area isn't ready yet). The downside of this campground is the laundry. I don't think many people use it and I certainly wouldn't. It smells bad and there is only 2 washers and 2 dryers. I get the impression that many people come here for the weekends with about 20 or so sites appear to be seasonal users. The sites are pretty level and many have had new gravel put on them. The Staff is very friendly. The restrooms are typical Thousand Trails, dated but clean. We enjoyed the campground and spent most days out visiting the historical areas and winery's. We would come back. The rate reflects Thousand Trails membership. The campground only has 30 amp service.

This is one of the better Thousand Trails parks that we have been to. Restrooms are dated but clean. Personnel are very pleasant. We were there just before "the season" started so they didn't have any activities other than bingo on one night and Church service had just started. The pools were very well kept even though they aren't in use yet. The grounds are in good shape. Most campsites are good size some with shade some not. This park also had more 50amp sites than TT usually does and not being in season I didn't have to pay 3.00 per day for it. We would come back to this park.

The park has not prepared itself for "the season" yet. The pools were green and unusable and the recreation centers smelled like mold and were not usable for any entertainment. There is a Lake on the property but I am not sure how you launch any kind of craft from the campground. The sites were pavement but not very level. There were several that are full time at the park but the units are well kept up. This area has many things to do for nature entertainment. There are many walking trails and waterfalls to see. The park has a book available with locations. You are about 14 miles from the nearest larger town but that isn't an issue. AT&T had good reception in the campground. The restrooms are clean but dated. There is a laundry on site $1.25 each wash and dry. I would go back more to explore the area.

Rate based on Thousand Trails membership. We enjoyed this campground. Everyone in the park and all employees were very helpful and friendly. They don't have a large amount of scheduled activities but we don't always participate in them anyway. The location was very convenient for us. Our wifi signal was good. There were multiple stations that could be received using a standard antenna but we use Direct TV. There could be issues with mud if it was very rainy but wasn't a problem for us and didn't see any others with a problem while we were here.
