Rate is PA including $5.00 per day for electric if on a daily site. Desert park with some sites held for daily use. Pull through was level front to back and side to side with hookups placed well and worked well. Water drinkable from the tap. A few permanents with majority seasonal folks who come to ride the trails with ATV's. We spent three days visiting friends who ride trails. Park OK for what it is.

Rate is PA cash. Easy off/on from I-10. Long level pull thru by laundry/shower house. Hookups worked well with good water pressure and drinkable from the tap. Hose bib leaked so alerted management. Came and checked and have to replace crack in hose bib pipe. Said will change after we leave and thanked me. Laundry is wash-dry $1.25 each. Unpleasant odor of something somewhere in the room. Good Dennys restaurant short walk across road. May stay again.

Good park for overnight in El Paso. Yes, I said El Paso. Level long pull thrus with hookups placed correctly with good water pressure and drinkable right from the tap. Staff pleasant, professional and helpful. Office open till 10:00 PM then security officers at gate and patrols through night hours. DW said Laundry was clean with all new washer and dryers. $1.50 wash, $1.25 dry. Also good cable tv. Will stay again when we find ourselves in the El Paso area.

Good easy off/on park on I-10. Had long pull thru on end of row that was level and hookups worked as expected. Not a resort but they do have a pool in season and large dog run. Staff helpful and friendly and very good small cafe on the grounds. We ate supper and breakfast and it was cooked and served well with friendly staff and reasonably priced. Would stop again when passing through Fort Stockton.

$13.00 is actually $12.50 a day for 30 day stay. Nice rv park and campground operated by nice couple that live on site. Have made a lot of nice upgrades since they bought it, including brand new pavilion, new toilet and shower house and upgraded laundry building. 10 new shorter sites by pavilion that have concrete side curbs and gravel base with fhu's for transient travelers. Our site, #29, was level pull-thru concrete with patio area and fhu's that worked well with good water pressure @45psi. Some permanents but most of those in good shape. Laundry-$1.50W,$1.00D. One con, folks drive too fast thru the park, but we liked it here and would stay here again.

Stayed here for a rally on Octoberfest weekend. Park built in the old style with one pedestal cluster serving four rigs with sewer drop separate and straight in parking with no angle so you will drive over the grass. Be aware as you may need long water and shore power hoses. The park worked well for the rally and visiting the colonies.

Stayed Saturday night of the Labor Day weekend as we were passing through the area. Newer park in this area and is built in the modern KOA style with big club house/office and laundry combined. Site we had was crushed gravel pull through about 80 feet with electric pedestal and water placed well and two sewer connects to give you a choice. Coded interior gate and outer gate is closed at 10:00 PM. A good stop but a little high dollar for us.

Stayed here while passing through the area on Labor Day weekend. Old tractor, flea market and gun show going on at the grounds but no problem finding a very nice 30 amp/water site so we could walk to the event. Very nice men manning the gate directed us to the envelope payment box, filled it out, put a twenty in, put it in the secure box and went about our business. We were advised about the pancake breakfast in the morning so we will take this in and enjoy this gem of a campground in the UP. Would use this place again if in this area.

Used this park to stay in when we visited friends who stay in a seasonal park up the road. Site was back in grass with 50 amp service, good water pressure and sewer connection. The park is large with about 95% seasonal/summer folks. They keep a number of transient-nightly-weekly sites on the golf course side with some concrete, some grass sites with full hook-ups. Office staff friendly and we met one of the owners who was very friendly and accommodating when we wanted to switch sites. Would return when in this area visiting our friends.

Stayed here again for the annual FROG rally. About 800 units this year. Electric and water service very strong for the number of units on the systems. Rained several times during the week but ponding was at a minimum. Elkhart county and city of Goshen operate this campgrounds/fairgrounds like a well oiled machine. Office staff very pleasant and helpful. If you are in this area, whether visiting or business with the rig factories you can't go wrong staying here.

Stayed here and reviewed this park before. Decent park if you're visiting the Quad Cities. Power and water worked as they should but park is apparentaly replacing some or all of the sewer connections so new ones are 8-10-or 12 inches above ground level. Nice pool and office staff friendly accommodating. Having said all that, the park is getting a little run down looking and could use some TLC and regravel the transient sites. Some sites as we noticed were a little hard to level. Alao some seasonal/permanent sites were looking a little junky. We would stay again when visiting friends in Davenport.

Stay here when we travel to southern Minnesota and have reviewed before. Sites are sand based with gravel cover that drains fast with no ponding. Utilities placed well in sites and have 30/50 amp service, good water, and sewer connect placed in site for easy connection and dump. Laundry and new spacious shower/toilet rooms now open in the new community building. Private lake has walking path all around it with benches for relaxing. Owners/builders live on site and you can buy in if you wish and have concrete pad and casita on your site. We highly recommend.

Stayed here as workampers for Adventureland amusement park May, June, and July. Had a pull-thru near one of the laundries. Utilities placed in sites well and all worked well. Water very good out of tap with just your normal water filter on it. Very clean and well kept. The mowing and triming crew, who were also workampers, knew their business and were careful around the rigs. One of the nicest large parks near a major city we have stayed in, with all the shopping and eating places you would want near by. Also able to have HDT and 5er in the pull thru site with room to spare.

Not too much to comment on as I have reviewed this park before. Remains a top rv park connected to the worlds largest casino under one roof. The Saturday night we were there it was fairly full becauce of the star entertainment going on the main showroom. Hotels and all parking lots around the casino were full. Running extra shuttles. All sites concrete with concrete roads. Hookup worked as expected with real strong water pressure. Laundry was spotless with 1.00 wash and 1.00 dry with good commercial machines. All in all a good stop for a night or two and don't forget free senior (50 and over) buffet breakfasts on Wed., and Thurs. Must have player card to take advantage. Our night this trip was comped.

If you are looking for paved roads, concrete sites with a pool and other high dollar amenities keep moving. If you want peace and quiet with a mix of pull thrus and backins with 30/50 electric, sewer and well water that is great right from the tap, then you want this park for a night, a week, or what ever. Owners live on site and very friendly and are always working around the park. Park host or owner will help you get set up. Some permanents but most have clean sites and park is quiet even though on state highway. Laundry and showers available if needed. Not much to do in town but an hours drive is Austin an other way is Bryan/College Station. If 65 or over ask for retired rates. You will be pleased. We were and glad we stayed for a month. Don't forget Snows BBQ on Saturdays.
