This park is about 8 miles off I-65 but is an easy drive on 4 lane roads. The staff is great. The entry roads are paved and the rest are hard pack gravel. The sites are wide and again packed gravel. We "upgraded" to the long and wide pull-through site, only $31. Wi-Fi and cable good. Extra large patio.

Date of Stay:

This was our second visit. The first was two years ago when the new owners took over. They are doing an excellent job getting this into great shape. The Wifi actually works compared to other parks. The 12 cable channels were very clear. This is a great overnight with easy Interstate access. Very close to Pilot Truck Stop. There is some train noise but this is true of all parks in the area. What is also fantastic is that their pull through sites are really that. So many pull through sites make you unhook if you are in a motor hone. Not here. And if you don't want to unhook and still go out for dinner, the owners will take you and pick you up. All this for $31 on Good Sam.

The good aspects of this park: Lowest rate in New Orleans, good staff, good cable, 15 min to airport or French Quarter. The not good is: at least two very, very loud trains in the middle of the night, poor wifi, sites close. If you have a large fifth wheel or large motor home do not book on line. This is a small park with basically two roads. The entrance road has plenty of room for RV's and tows, the other street does not. If you are on the other street forget getting out early in the morning as both sides of the street is filled with large pick ups and you will not be able to get out. We will not be back.

This is not a park for large motorhomes. The road in is a one vehicle wide lane. The interior roads are one lane and there are trees to maneuver around. The sites are dirt. It rained when we were there. There was a lake around the front of our motorhome. You are in a forest. Lots of bugs.

The park itself is average. They try hard to entertain the kids. The staff is very good. We had no trouble with the WiFi. But as other reviews have stated the road there off the interstate is about eight miles and most of it is not good. But if you take it around 30 to 35 mph and watch the road it is OK. Our car GPS took us another way which was just as bad.

This is a good park for fishing and boating. Sites were level. Wifi average to poor. Cable fair. Watertown shopping 25 min away. On the first morning we were engulfed by thousands of may flies. When I asked about them I was given a sheet that also included the Canadian geese info and advised against walking on the grass to avoid their dropping. Also advised about the smell from the lake. WE did not have the smell but lots of bugs and geese.

You are way out of town. If you do not have satellite the TV is terrible as there is no cable. WiFi was actually good. Grass and gravel roads and sites.

If I could give this a negative number I would. The park has dirt roads with some gravel at the sites. When it rains it is a sea of mud. There is no way to keep your rig clean. Wifi worked half the time and with no cable the TV was extremely poor. There is miniature golf course for the kids. However half of the holes have plywood instead of Astro turf and the ones with Astro turf are bad. Big rigs beware. It took us almost a half an hour to get into our site due to all the trees. The office staff is not friendly. If you have a reservation here, try to cancel.

This is a new ownership park that also rents sites. The staff here is very good. There is a large pool, tennis court, pickleball courts, and shuffleboard. There is also a lake with paddle boats. Park is located about two miles off Interstate 75 and you should follow the directions on their web site as your GPS may take you a different route. Roads and streets are concrete and sites are of decent size. Shopping that includes Costco, Publix, and Walmart are within a few miles. The park is very quiet with no train, highway, or airplane noise. We have stayed in this area before and found this listed on another web site and this is now our choice when in this area. We are full timers in a forty foot rig and this is one of a very few excellent ratings I have given.

This place looks good but what you don't see can be really bad. There is a bar within 70 feet of the RV sites that has bands on Fri, Sat & Sun nights from 9 pm to 1:30 am. Sleep impossible. Also one of the office staff very rude. Told me when I complained about the poor WIFI that it was the customers fault for having to many gadgets. Also when I complained about the music I was told that it was a resort area and I should expect. The sad news was that the office person told me that the owner of the park was part owner of the bar and knew how loud the music is. And, the big deal about the Ramada was worthless. The pool was not heated and right next to the Ramada is a great public beach with ample parking.

This is not a "Country Club" as they advertise. The pool was closed for cleaning which would not make any difference as they do not have a heater for it, if this was a great park the pool would be heated. All they have is a pool, club house and hot tub, nothing else. The staff is great. The cable has about 20 channels. The Wi-Fi has worked half the time. The water pressure is not good some of the time. There is construction of new sites going on. When you pay the extra for a lakeside lot you look across to a field of weeds and a couple of trash piles. It is thirty minutes to the Gulf Shores Beaches and fifteen minutes to Foley for any shopping. The sites and roads are paved and if you want to relax this is the place. There are other good parks closer to the beach which we will stay at next time.

This is an OK park, nothing special. There are few choices in the area. Overpriced at $40 but again no other choices. The pull through sites are level. Good Cable and WIFI. Gravel roads and sites. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Lots of permanent people. Would stay again for an overnight.

The $40 rate is based on a months stay. Park Review data is wrong. There is Wi-Fi but it is not very good. This ownership park is very good. Lots to do. You can read about that on other reviews or their web site. Here are some things you should know. You are thirty minutes to an Ocean Beach. Kennedy Space Center 20 minutes. Orland about an hour. I had two problems with the place. First of all, they have not met a tree they don't like. It took twenty minutes to fit our 40 foot between the trees so the slides and door would open. This is not for most of the sites. We just got lucky. A lot of the trees on our site were Pine. Request a site that does not have these as the tree sap is impossible to remove, and the tree droppings make the site a mess. They maintain their own sewer treatment plant. Twice during our stay the odor backed up into our tanks and then into our RV. Make sure you don't dump completely. I left about one quarter full and had no odor problem. But this is a great park, security is very good.

As far as a KOA this was a good one. Cable and wifi worked well. Staff was friendly. The park is entirely gravel. Unless you arrive after they water the gravel (we did not) your tow is completely covered in dust. Don't wash your tow before you get here as you will have wasted your time. Roads are wide and sites typical KOA size.

Worst Customer Service I have encountered. I arrived early and was told that my site was full and I had to leave the park. And I was told I could not call to see if the site was vacant and had to wait till 4pm. They did not try to move me to another site. As I tried to leave I saw our site was empty and the park was one third empty. Roads are wide BUT turns are tight. You can tell by the posts they have at the turns and how scraped up they are. Wi-Fi and Cable were good. Sites are gravel. They say they are on the ocean but as you read the entire site you find there is a lagoon between you and the ocean (regulars told me it has been 10 years since they were ocean front) and it is about a mile walk to get to the beach.
