We loved our stay here. The only thing that would have made it better would have been to have a sewer hook-up so we could stay longer. We stayed in a very spacious W/E site on the ridge with expansive views in every direction. Our site was across from the bath house, making it very convenient to use the shower facilities. The three-star for cleanliness is for the bath house. Can't speak to the toilets, but the showers at a minimum looked dingy ... perhaps because of the dim lighting. They were decent enough to use. The shower area, with two stalls would benefit from the addition of two curtains to give the occupants more privacy in the changing area ... very odd set up. We would definitely stay here again. Wi-fi available near the bath house and at the Visitor Center.

We stayed here for its convenience to NASA and the Port of Houston. Some of the back-in sites in the rear are more spacious, but we opted for a drive-in site at the front end of the park ... not sardine-can-packed, but fairly narrow ... we've been in parks where it was far tighter. Enough space for a picnic table and a couple of chairs on a concrete patio on which the adjacent site's utilities are also situated. The clientele is a mix of resident RVers and transients ... more of the latter than the former. Most sites are tidy, but there are quite a few strewn about with the belongings of the long-term residents in an unappealing way. Trash is collected from frequently spaced spots with white picket fences around them. The problem is that although the sign says bagged trash only, we saw stuff that wasn't bagged ... pizza boxes, and such. While this is not a destination RV park, we would stay here again if its location fit in with our future plans in the area. Beautiful sunrises over the golf course.

We recently stayed a week at a water/electric site on the beachside. We were in the first loop, which has a brand new bathhouse/toilet facility. (Of the three loops here, campers in the middle loop have to use the facilities in the first or third loop.) Our site was just off the path to the beach, which was nice. The sites here may be prone to flooding/standing water if the ground is already saturated from heavy rains. This happened to us one day, but the park crew were quick to come around with portable sump pumps to divert the water, so it wasn't a big problem. We would definitely stay here again.

We stayed here two nights to visit friends living nearby. It's a big RV park with a mix of resident and transients. We did not use any of the facilities as we were with our friends except when we returned to sleep in the rig. Verify that you are getting the type of site you have reserved before paying the balance owed. Sites are gravel; ours had a small patio (not all do); no grill or picnic table either. The road to the campground is narrow and could use repaving, but roads within the campground are OK even with the tow vehicle hooked up. Our site was not level even though we were told it was if we pulled all the way back. We found it to slope towards the front end.

We stayed one month at this 50+ senior campground; 16 miles from the nearest town (Ruidoso) with shopping, groceries, restaurants and other amenities. We enjoyed the very quiet atmosphere as it was just the place we were looking for to rest for a while. It's probably not the place for those who are unable to entertain themselves, though there are opportunities for sightseeing day trips in the area. Extensive collection of DVDs in the clubhouse, with a picnic area outside where those staying at the park can socialize. The two end sites are the most spacious, and well worth the $50 upcharge on the monthly rate. The remaining sites reasonably spaced apart. A picnic table and grill are at each site. The hosts -- Denise and Roy -- are very friendly and helpful, and work all day everyday to maintain clean and manicured grounds. If unused to drinking well water, bring bottled water unless you're set up to filter the water from the tap. We would definitely stay here again.

We stayed here five nights while exploring the Santa Fe area. Not much to do in the immediate vicinity that we could see. The campground is about 20 minutes south of Santa Fe, and about 10 minutes from an open air museum that we really enjoyed visiting. We were assigned a site in the "resident's loop" and were disappointed at first. But the site grew on us and we would definitely return and perhaps even ask for the same site. We had to park close to the concrete patio to get level, but even then had plenty of room on the spacious patio.

We stayed here overnight. Long gravel site; pull-through, which was great for an overnight stay as we didn't have to unhook the towed vehicle. Website describes the sites as spacious. Perhaps that's true compared to some campgrounds, but rigs in our section were packed in pretty tight. Did not wander around the campground, so I can't speak to the other loops. Didn't really matter as we were here for one night. The people in the office were very friendly, and we were escorted to our site by a golf cart. There was a picnic table on the site, but it was too windy to avail ourselves of it.

We used this campground as an overnight stop. Wasn't expecting much; didn't get much, but served it's purpose quite well. The price was a little on the high side. After being parked in a maintenance facility with just an electric hook-up, we appreciated having water and sewer, and a quiet campground for a change of pace. Sites aren't especially level, but we had no problems leveling with our jacks. Had called in advance for availability. Plenty of empty spaces. I think we were the only transients in the RV Park. The campground manager I spoke with told us all the sites were back-in, so no surprise there, and it wasn't a biggie to unhook the toad.

This was our second time staying at this campground this year; Passport America rate, cash only. Convenient for an overnight stay off I-10. (We stayed in a pull through -- site 4 behind the gas station.) Easy access from freeway; we were not bothered by any traffic noise. Essentially a big field rimmed on two sides with campsites. We would stay here again for an overnight stop.

We stayed at this campground for three nights. Our primary reason for being in the area was to have work done at the RV Service of Virginia, which is three miles from this campground. We opted for a gravel site in Loop E, which is further from the freeway from where the concrete pad sites are located, and thus not as much traffic noise from the freeway. The campground is heavily treed, but we had no problems getting into our pull-through site. The staff in the office were friendly and helpful, and refunded our last night's fee when we opted to leave a day early. There is a conveniently located truck stop before the turn to Air Park Road for those needing to top-off on diesel. If we're in the area again, we would stay here.

Short and sweet. After staying 5 nights (2 in non-lakefront), we booked to come back for a month in July. Beautiful manicured grounds and friendly helpful owner/manager. Ownership campground, but available for short term rentals for transients.

Stayed O/N en route from SC to VA via I-85. (Only campground in the area that is close to the freeway.) Sites are tight, but decent enough for an O/N stay, although the coach next to us was obviously set up for a long stay. We were unable to get level with our onboard leveling system. Tried two sites, and decided to just put the front tires on blocks and leave it at that. Free Wi-Fi available, but iffy in the upper section where we were located. This section is the farthest from the freeway and therefore quiet (no traffic noise could be heard inside the coach). Would stay here again if we are in the area and ready to get off the road for the day.

We stayed here in a lakefront site for two weeks in May. Loved the entire experience and the only reason we're not rating it a 10 is the lack of sewer hook-ups. Normally we don't consider this a problem, but with the extreme high temps we experienced off and on throughout our stay, it would have been nice to be able to dump our tanks every few days. Otherwise, we had a fantastic, quiet stay. Even though the campground was at full occupancy over the Memorial Day long weekend, it was quiet. There are no playgrounds or other amenities for kids, and swimming in the lake is not a good idea because of the alligators. This might have contributed to a quieter holiday weekend experience since there were few families with kids. The campground has an acknowledged ant problem (Argentine ants), but we had read about this and went prepared. We sprayed anything that touched the ground and also created a perimeter around the site with bait granules. Did not have any problems with ants on the pad. A neighboring site, though they sprayed, was not as lucky and their coach was invaded by ants. A contributing factor to their problem might have been that they had large get-togethers with other campers at their site that involved careless cooking and eating outside. Nearest town is Chatahoochee, FL. Basic groceries available in this town, but expensive. Bainbridge, GA and Quincy and Marianna, FL are twenty to thirty miles away and offer plentiful stores and restaurants for those needing a break from the campground. We would stay here again.

While the campground is great, with some really nicely spaced sites, we probably won't stay here again unless we happen to be in the area when the gnats aren't biting. Still, I have to give them kudos for how well they came back after damaging hurricanes like Katrina, and more recently, Isaac. Rebuilding of some of the amenities were ongoing, but it did not impact our stay. We would have rated this campground much higher if not for the biting gnats we encountered during our two-week stay in April. We were unable to take full advantage of our great site because it was near impossible to sit outside. Within the first few days, my husband was bit so bad that his arms and legs looked like he had chicken pox. Eventually, we managed to sit in our screened shelter for a few hours each day with the help of a couple of big fans we purchased from Wal-Mart to create a cross-breeze to keep the gnats at bay. Nice long stretches of beach within walking distance (might be a long walk for some), and a wide walking/biking path heads in the direction of Waveland along a stretch of the beach. The Sound may not be inviting to swim in for people used to Gulf waters, but the beach is great for walking. Bay St. Louis is well worth exploring; don't forget to check out the Katrina trees. Trains rumble by tooting their horns throughout the day. It didn't bother us, but might be a problem for some.

That this campground is remote goes without saying. Nonetheless, we loved staying here and would do so again. We swapped our river view pull through for a first-come first-served lake front back-in and drove into the site face-first to enjoy the peaceful view (you need to have enough hose and electric cable length to do so, but it was oh so worth it). A great campground to just chill - great for those who like to fish. We left a day early to get ahead of a storm that was heading in the direction of our next campground, and the hosts were very understanding and refunded the last day's camping fee without us having to ask them.
