We found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. You can't play tennis every morning since the one court is switched between pickleball and tennis every other day (but courteous sharing builds character). The sites are wide and private with hedges between. The roads are paved and wide. A host guided us to our site and assisted and with backing in. There are three grassy off-leash dog areas that are well maintained as well as several wide sandy washes for dog walking. Free wifi was fast. The pool and two spas looked clean and inviting. There is a well equipped fitness room and many available activities. The residents, a combination of full-timers, snowbirds and transients, were friendly and the park was quiet. There was not only an impressive array of amenities and facilities, but also every thing was well maintained and operational. A park must be adjacent to a lake or ocean to receive a 10 rating from me, but this one would have deserved it but for this one absent amenity. Would definitely stay again.

Black Rock must be the orphan child of Joshua Tree National Park. Terrible is an insufficient negative description for the interior roads (narrow, windy, potholes in the asphalt roads, and erosive dips in the dirt roads). Joshua trees are fiberglass killers and they are not trimmed to accommodate RVs. Sites are dirt, and many are not level (even for tent campers), and you cannot determine which are which at time of reservation. Drinking water is available at various locations and at the dump station. Restrooms are plentiful and fire rings and picnic tables are provided. The rangers are courteous and helpful. The campground is clean, quiet and peaceful (except the generator hours), and beautiful if you like the high desert. We would not stay again.

Rate is senior discount after two-day PA rate was exhausted. Long, wide pull-thrus. All gravel with raised utility islands and a grass belt at the fence surrounding the dog walking area. Utilities worked at our site. Sewer was uphill to the utility island and inconvenient; had to insert blocks under hose support to drain. Friendly staff, clean park, freeway noise not intrusive (it's off I-10 not I-40). Terrible odor (from waste water plant?) when wind is eastward. It is not worth the regular rate, but we were forced to stay more days than PA allowed, waiting for truck repair. It is acceptable for an overnight stay at the PA rate.

Rate is Good Sam. Would have given an 8 but the laundry at the full-timer end of the park was unacceptable; three washers were broken and the one dryer used dried on hot even though the medium setting was selected. The doors on that laundry and adjacent bathroom were not latched, preventing the security implied by having a lock code. Also, the two aerobic machines in the advertised fitness room did not function. The three fenced dog runs were great and there was plenty of space and grass for do walking. The quiet setting under oak trees was pleasant. The small pool, spa and grounds were immaculate and the utilities were functional. The staff was friendly and helpful. Long pull-through concrete sites and paved roads. Would stay again.

All gravel, basic park with some level sites. Mostly pull-throughs. Serviceable utilities that seem well maintained. Next to freeway, so light sleepers may have issue. At $19.50 Passport America rate ($3 for 3rd person), it is a marginal value for no amenities, but it is an acceptable one night spot if you have reached your driving limit. Would stay again.

Date of Stay:

Mostly full timers in back-in sites. Eight pull-thrus in the back, without sewer. All sand and gravel. Pull-thrus have BBQ grill and concrete pad with small picnic table. OLD, but well maintained park. Bathrooms OLD, but serviceable and clean. Pool only open Memorial Day to Labor Day. Cable TV good. Worth a 7, but 6 because of no sewer at site and undisclosed extra charges on PA website: $2 for cable TV, $2 for extra person more than 2. Decent for overnight on way somewhere else. Would stay again because of lack of alternatives.

This park is quiet and clean. The gravel roads are sufficiently wide. The concrete sites are level but narrow. The utilities worked well, but the pedestals are not in the middle of the grass strip between spaces, so the neighbor's lines and hoses prevent any usable access to the front when the park is crowded. The "pull throughs" are really two back-in spaces combined, but since they are on one long pad you can drive through. There are 15-20 true back-in pads around a pavilion/group kitchen. These will be convenient once the strips in between sites are filled in and grass planted. The grounds are open grass that is kept mowed. The internet is decent. Antenna TV from nearby large cities is great. Lots of dog walking areas. If you like to fish for catfish, there are two large ponds with sloping grass banks (can't report on the catching). The men's bathroom had neither hand soap nor paper towels on two separate days despite it being the weekend and a sign displayed saying cleaning was to occur on both days (someone had attended the bathroom since there was a new waste basket liner). The laundry room no smoking sign was obviously not honored or enforced since the room reeked. The pool was not open (seasonal apparently) although the website did not indicate this limitation. We would stay again.

First night is $34. Clean, quiet park set in a beautiful, grassy, wooded area. Paved roads with most sites level (ours had a pothole). Lack of sewer merits a one star reduction and lack of a heated pool (summer only) and other amenities merits a one star reduction. Although the width and arrangement of sites, allowing each RV much more space than in typical parks, almost made up for the lack of a sewer (dump station available on exit), it was crowded when full since it appears lots of locals bring their friends. Lots of dog walking areas, including along a nearby bayou. Internet was slow (insufficient bandwidth) and some pages are blocked by the state (another star reduction). Antenna TV from New Orleans was great. Free laundry was a plus also. It is conveniently close to the Algiers ferry to N.O. We would stay again.

Well maintained, quiet and clean home site park renting empty spaces until all are sold. Wide brick roads, wide, near level, gravel sites, no shade. Friendly staff, beautiful unheated pool; hot spa broken and no indication of repair work being scheduled. Internet had typical insufficient bandwidth, so it was inconsistent. Huge open areas for dog walking. No laundry. One and a half miles to Carrabelle Beach. PA rate.

Date of Stay:

Narrow roads and sites, and airport noise. This park was developed years ago for smaller RV's, so getting into a site with a 30' plus unit is a nightmare. There is virtually no room between sites once you get in. In airport flight path. Depending on wind direction there is annoying jet noise during the day. Paved roads and concrete sites surrounded by grass. Clean, heated pool. Friendly, helpful staff. Two maintenance staff arrived quickly in response to my question about cable TV inadequacy. They not only showed me the cable box was working, but offered check my side of the system. Finally diagnosing a loose TV connection to display great cable reception. An unknown WiFi problem, noted by an office door sign, caused poor internet reception that was not resolved during our week long stay. Dog walking is on minimal grass at edge of roads or outside park. Very expensive, but there is not much choice if you want to be close to Key West.

Date of Stay:

Well maintained, quiet, county-run park with paved roads, level, widely spaced sites. Park-like setting with acres of dog walking areas behind sites. Adjacent park has walking/biking trails. Large pool could use better daily maintenance, but adequate to use. Pool hours only 11 to 5, so not convenient. Good Wi-Fi, but we were next to repeater pole. Good antenna TV. Will stay again on our return from the Keys.

Surprise! A government run park that looks private. This beautiful place is hidden in the middle of a city, but next to a lake. Paved, wide roads and large level sites. The power posts are well maintained and utilities worked well. Lots of dog walking areas at edges and at back of park. Slow Internet during the day (not enough bandwidth), but good antenna TV. It is next to a civil aviation airport, but the plane noise was occasional and not obtrusive. Although it lacked resort amenities, its well maintained facilities and location made it a good base for sightseeing in the Palm Beach area. We would stay again.

Nicely maintained, quiet park on US 1. Road noise not a problem at night. The nearby train track was a loud rumble when train passed during the day, but we did not hear any at night. The roads and sites are paved and level. We had a pull through, but the sites are narrow and it looked difficult to negotiate the back-in sites. Good Internet and cable TV. Clean, heated pool and bocce ball and shuffleboard provided. Lots of daily activities available. Off- leash dog park was a big plus and large dog walking areas are available at front and side of park. Friendly staff and residents, most of whom seemed to be snowbirds. Good value for Florida. We stayed two nights; would stay again.

Date of Stay:

Quiet, clean, well maintained, friendly, basic park with clubhouse, shuffleboard, and horseshoes. Paved roads and level concrete sites. Pet friendly and decent grass for dog walking. Nonexistent internet at site about 50 yards from office. Great antenna TV available. Utilities worked well. Garbage picked up at site. Good value for theme park base. Cash only. Would stay again.

PA discount is reflected in rate. Park is in pleasant, safe feeling countryside area. Nice parking lot style park, well maintained, clean, quiet except for distant traffic of I-10. Small trees needing time to grow. Park is surrounded by trees, so the distant viewscape is pleasant. Gravel roads, sand and grass, mostly level sites. Utilities worked well. Internet good (some slow page loads and occasional disconnects) and TV antenna reception very good. Accommodating, friendly staff. Lots of dog walking areas.
