We spent a week here and found it to be a good spot for visiting the area. The utilities worked well. The staff was friendly. The only downfall is that the roads and sites are dirt. Other than this, it's a nice place. We will stay again when in the area.

Date of Stay:

Ok park for an overnight stay. The owner was very friendly. The sites are gravel but has decent utilities. The site was level and the utilities were placed ok. This isn't my idea of a park to vacation at but it was ok for a one night stay. I would stay again.

Talk about convenient! The park literally sits just to the right of the northbound ramp to i44. It's essentially a Parking lot with W E S and cable hookups. The site is on concrete, offers pull thrus, and is flat. Each site has a table, grill, and utility light on the post. There is adequate space between spots. A Taco Bell and Mexican restaurant is in walking distance. There is road noise on a Saturday night, but it's extremely convenient as an overnight spot. We wouldn't spend a week here but will definitely spend a night. Because it has everything you need. The only reason I didn't give it a ten is that the wifi is nearly useless.

This is the second time we stayed while crossing the country. It's as nice as it was three years ago. The sites are concrete/blacktop and FLAT. Its easy off/on for I40. A Lovrs gas station is at the exit. The wifi is slow but acceptable. Good tv channels. The laundry is s1 per load. The pool looked awesome but was closed. The staff was friendly. They offer a free limo ride to the steakhouse. The sites are reasonably spaced although some will complain that its a parking lot. I wouldn't go here to camp for a week but think it's very convenient for a night or two. Easy in, easy out!

This park is hard to rate. The pull thru is FHU. The lake is nice. The playground is too. Its only 5 or 6 miles north of rt. 44. The back in sights are nice. The pull thru hookups were convenient. The downside is that the pull thrus ate uphill. If you hit it just right, you are relatively level but if it rains, you can see where mud runs down through the sight. If you miss the right turn for the pull thru road you have to go around and.drive it again. The road is narrow. I might look elsewhere next time although this park provided everything we needed.

We stayed here for balloon fest in 2014. It was not nearly as crowded this trip. The amenities are still good with one exception. There is NO wifi. In today's age this is ridiculous! They say the problem is on Cox's end. I would have chosen elsewhere if I would have known in advance. I found out at check in and didn't want to research after driving all day. When you spend months at a time on the road, you come to depend on Internet to do banking and pay bills. I would call first before coming back again.

Date of Stay:

We spent one night on a pull thru sight. The water wasn't working so we only had electric. The visitor center, which is where you pay, is not be the dampground. We also had a hard time finding the dumpster. It was an ok spot for an overnight. There was a picnic table but it was close to our steps. There was also a girl/fire pit.

This is probably not the place for an overnight stay, but then again you will get amenities that are superb even if your sight is lacking. We stayed two months. We were mixed in with permanents. Our sight was spacious and had room for three cars plus our dolly and rv. They offer stained glass, wood working, exercise, silver smithing, billiards, sewing, pc classes and much more during the winter. There was a band playing every night, Bingo on Wednesdays, monthly vendor and craft shows, and fine food served at the tiki bar. The two pools were amazing and so was the hot tub. I could go on about the park. If you are bored in the winter, blame yourself. This is a top notch winter resort that caters to the 55 and older crowd. My only complaint was our neighbor who had a 45 ft rv, a second 25' trailer, a small motorcycle trailer, a couple cars, and a golf cart on his spot. He kept encroaching on us but this isn't a fault of the park. It's a person who was not taught to respect boundaries. I am surprised how many folks lack respect for the property someone else is renting. Again, I can't blame the park for inconsiderate self absorbed people. When I figure the monthly rate and add the amenities, this park is the best park we have stayed in during our ten years of RVing!

Date of Stay:

We spent six days at this park. There was an additional $16 charge as electricity is metered and is NOT part of the rate. The wifi was essentially useless. The check in was painfully slow. We blew past the entrance every day as there is no identifying sign until you are on top of the park. Now for the good parts - the staff was very friendly, the pool was nice, they had movie night with free popcorn in the social room. The utilities were placed better than most parks. Propane is available on site. there is adequate space between sites. The sites are flat and have a 8 x 10 concrete pad and picnic table. Bring your own fire pit if you want a fire. The laundry was very clean. The cost was $1.25. The park is centrally located to everything in the area. While I liked the staff, I would choose the state park the next time.

The park is very clean. The staff is friendly. Its right off I10 and is convenient to the Farmers Market, Mesilla village, and shopping. Its 45 miles to El Paso and maybe 50 miles to White Sands Nat'l Monument. The wifi and cable worked well. I don't think I would come back again though because our slide out was three feet from our neighbor's. We faced opposite directions but this is my first time in ten years of RVing that I stayed in a "resort" that shoved two 35' RVs towing together like this. When the neighbor dumped his tank we could smell it inside our RV for the next thirty minutes. Very disappointing. I would only return if I was assured this wouldn't happen again. I don't expect this in a $44 resort.

This is a very convenient park from which to visit the missions, River walk, Alamo, and Traders World. As others mention, you can take a bus downtown. We drove our car and it only took 15 minutes through town. We left downtown at 4:30 and got back in twenty minutes using 536 once we got a few blocks from the parking deck. We parked at Houston parking garage on the corner of Houston and Navarro. The cost from 10:00-4:30 was $9. It was two blocks to the Riverwalk. The campground has some permanents that are well maintained. The road at the entrance was very easy to get in and out. Going to Military Dr. will get you to Home Depot, WalMart, lots of stores and restaurants. Make sure you have a regulator for the water. The pads are concrete and level. I would have given it a Te but they wouldn't take the PA discount for the one day due to it being "prime season". I could have understood this if all the sites were full. As it was there were at least fifteen or more empty sites. We felt safe here. Make sure they tell you how to get to the park - don't follow your GPS.

This is a hard park to rate. The laundry ($1) is great, free breakfast, pool, exercise room, playground all are top notch. The staff is friendly, and the location is good. (if heading west use exit 847 as Garmin is wrong). The sites are concrete and level. My complaints is that I felt like we were in a parking lot. There's no trees; its just row after row of sites. There was enough room for slides on each side. It makes a great overnight stop or park to spend a couple days in while touring the area. Keep in mind there is no privacy.

The Perfect park for touring New Orleans. The water and electric are conveniently located. The concrete pads are lower in the back but not too bad. The sites are spacious. The park is relatively quiet. The best part is the convenience to the city. It's about 15 minutes to the WWII museum. Hop on 90, cross the river, get off on the right at the second exit (Camp St) are you are there. Going to the French Market? Take 90 over the bridge, get on I10E and get off to the right at the Esplanade exit. Turn right and go all the way down to the end and turn right on Decatur. We parked behind the Market and had no traffic problems at all. Or, as others suggest, you can take the ferry. We had no problems getting in and out by car though. This park is perfect for what we wanted. I highly recommend it over any other park in New Orleans. This park is safe, secure, and has a park patrol. The only thing missing are sewer hookups.

We found this park online and chose it because they said they had pull thru sites. They're not really pull thrus. There are sites where the first RV pulls in and a second pulls in behind it. The utilities are not perfectly placed but adequate. The spacing between spots are the same. The pads are short in the "pull thru" spots. It is a gravel parking lot with unlevel concrete pads. The wifi is useless. We came down the road and thought the entrance came first. Wrong. It was a dead end road. We had to unhook the car and dolly which was very frustrating. If you need a place to stay, it works for an overnighter but the rates are high for what you get. I would stay elsewhere next time.

Excellent park! The sites are concrete with a slab for your extra vehicle. There are concrete tables, fire rings, grills, and a pedestal for your gas grill. This park is laid out well. It has water and electric hookups and just a class park. If they had sewer I would have given it a ten. This is the best CIE I have been to.
