Gravel here, gravel there, gravel everywhere. It's like camping in a big gravel parking lot. There are NO trees in the gravel area we were in, although there are some sites along the edge of this area that have actual shade. Hooks-ups were fine. Cable TV was excellent, but the WI-FI not so much: too often and often not even able to be connected to. There is fenced-in but poorly-maintained dog area which was sandy and unkempt with too many piles of left-behind dog poop. There is a 10 mph speed limit in the park, which the RV's mostly observe but to many of the ever-present golf carts fly around like it's the Indy 500. I probably would camp (if you can call it that) here again but I can see the charm for families with younger children. For those who have written reviews stating that Sun 'n Fun is mostly geared for children may have participated in one too many Happy Hours.

Cable TV kept getting too snowy to watch. Maintenance guys came and worked on it, and finally decided that my quick-disconnect was the problem. It did get somewhat better. I think that's only because there were moving cables around. I am currently at another campground, using quick-disconnects at both end, and seeing a perfect picture on all channels. WI-FI was non-existent where we were camped. While we had a wonderful view of the lake, there was not a trace of WI-FI coverage. They said they had WI-FI in the vicinity of the office, we were FAR from the office. Our site was gravel but pretty close to level. Lots of shade trees and fire rings if you wanted a campfire. Office staff was very pleasant and helpful. The campground is pretty far from civilization, but it's a very pleasant place to stay. There seem to be a lot of things for kids to do, but we're two older adults so that's not a consideration for us. Good Sam rate was very reasonable. We have stayed here twice, and would do so again if we were in the area. PS: Diesel fuel and DEF are available a few miles down the road. Easy in and out for bigger rigs like ours (54' with Jeep towed).

The park is a bit on the worn side, but the owner is very friendly and helpful. The neighborhood is kind of shabby but the folks there seemed OK. The park itself has a LOT of perms and long-terms so that's not very pretty. But the lakeside area is just beautiful, and the park is very quiet at night. We camped in a pull-thru right next to the street and we never heard a sound all night. Since we were right by the road, our way out was to continue on the road we were parked next to. We hit some hanging tree branches on our way and our satellite radio antenna has been cutting out ever since. They really need to trim those trees. I kept to the middle of the road and they got us anyway. If you are looking for an inexpensive place to spend a night or two, Juniper Lake might just be the ticket.

When we first arrived, we thought this must be a fairly new park because everything looked so clean and well-maintained, but we learned that it was actually that has been there for a good number of years. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Right after we had parked in our well-kept and mowed pull-thru site, a camp worker came and placed boards under our jack. That was a first for us. The sites are grass except for the two strips of concrete where your tires are supposed to rest. They take their grass very seriously at this campground. It's bright green, thick, and kept mowed. DO NOT PLACE ANY MATS OR CARPETS ON THE GRASS. This will create brown spots, and they really take protecting their green grass here very seriously. Only minor irritation was the hedge along our site, making it impossible to get into the slide-out tray to put away our hoses. Had to stow them as we were pulled forward getting ready to leave. Also had a woman in a rental trailer who had a dog that barked every time anybody walked by -- and then kept barking for 15-20 minutes more. Very inconsiderate. WI-FI was OK but slowed down during peak hours of usage. There no cable TV, but OTA reception was very good so no problem there. One nice thing about this park was the absence of perms and long-termers. No dirty, rusty, nasty-looking trailers to ruin this beautiful park. Bullard is very rural with few store and shopping, but Tyler is a quick 20-minute drive north on 69, and it has all the stores and restaurants you could possibly want. Right up the highway is a nice new fuel stop where you can fill up with diesel AND get your big rig in and out easily. All in all, this is one of the prettiest RV parks we've ever stayed in. And East Texas is a very pretty area.

This is the friendliest park we've ever stayed at. The office staff was friendly when we checked in, the outside guys were friendly when they hooked us up (a first for us), and the staff even presented our rally group with a nice, big cake. Unheard of ! The setup is weird, but it somehow works. Our rally group was parked end to end with just enough space in between to wrangle our towed in and out for our daily adventures. The only disadvantage is that your rig ain't going anywhere until the rig in front of you pulls out, but since we were a group, we have no problems with this. There are a bunch of animals in the park from horses to macaws and even an emu. The macaws were loud and rowdy, but calmed down after dark. We'd love to go back here again. Great campground --- but they don't accept credits, so be aware to bring your checkbook or sufficient cash.

Too many ATV riders and too many folks who refuse to abide by park rules. Most of the ATV riders watched their speed while in the park but some drove way too fast. Others had radios/music players that were way too loud. There were several non-ATV campers who let their dogs run loose, which is c9ncern for those of us with small dogs...which we keep leashed as we're supposed to. The 50 A campsites range from somewhat unlevel to impossibly uneven. The 30 A sites are somewhat better . Since the weather was cool during our stay we were able to get by with less current but in hot weather this would have been a real problem. The clubhouse is very roomy and recently renovated.

This is an older park with a lot of perms and long-term residents. The road are quite narrow and tree-lined, so we had to be very careful in piloting our 37-foot RV plus tow around the loop to get to our site. The site seems to be a mix of gravel, sand, and grass. It was level enough that we didn't need to lower our jacks to level. Electric power was good, but their hand-out sheet asks guests to turn off AC when not in our units. On 90 degree plus days, that would make it nearly impossible to cool our unit down to a livable temperature. There is no cable TV. I noticed a lot of permanent satellite dishes around the park but we given no info on how to use them or even if we COULD use them. The WIFI was very good---after I hooked up my booster. Before that, not so much. The price seems a bit high considering there is nothing to do here.

No cable, but OTA channels were OK for an overnight stay. Couldn't access the WI-FI but we have our own Mobile Hotspot so no problem. The sites are all on grass. Ours was level enough that we didn't have to use our levelers for an overnight stay. 50 A. power worked fine and sewer was available but we didn't need to dump. Office was very polite and helpful.

The staff here is always very friendly and helpful. Out pull-thru site (full hook-ups) was almost perfectly level so we didn't bother leveling for a one-night stay (although we stayed a second night because of the hurricane). A free waffle breakfast is offered every day but Thursday, when a free dinner of hot dogs,beans, etc is offered. Cable TV was fine as was the WI-FI. I-95 is very close but we just ran our floor fan at night to cover outside noise.

This has been our most pleasant stay at this campground. We used to have to buy $1 tokens to get back into he campground after the office closed. Now you can get an electronic pass with just a refundable $25 deposit. Big improvement ! I also have seen improvement in the friendliness of the office staff. They are much more pleasant than they used to be. I guess all those negative comments were finally listened to. As noticed in previous reviews, there is no on-site sewer, but they do come and pump out your tanks on Mondays and Fridays. This is the first time we have camped here in a bigger Class A, and we could only run one AC at a time because they only have 30 Amp. Wiring at least some sites with 50A would be a really nice thing for those of us with bigger rigs. It didn't help that we stayed here during record-breaking heat ! DRFCG is really two different campgrounds. From Sunday night until Friday afternoon, it is pretty quiet here with a lot of empty site. The weekends are rowdy, with a lot of tent campers, but security is pretty much on the ball and quiets down those who get too rowdy. WI-FI is pretty much restricted to the public buildings at the top of the hill. Our first two weeks here I was able to access it fairly well with my WI-FI booster, but then the signal strength seemed to fade. Cable (via DISH Network) TV is very limited, less than 20 channels with only SD and kind of weird oversized picture. All in all, this campground has the best rates in this area ($700 per month), and we will, no doubt, be back next summer for a month or so.

Our site was not even close to level. Tried to use our levelers but had to settle for spending the night listing to port. WI FI was pretty good but no cable TV and only a few OTA channels were stable enough to watch. After dinner we thought we'd like to play some mini golf. I found out that it would cost us $6. After paying $45 for an uneven campsite with no cable TV I really do think charging for mini golf is over the top.

We only stayed overnight on our way back home to Florida. The lady at the desk (owner,manager) is a bit on the curt side, but not outright rude. The roads are somewhat narrow, and so are the sites, but we had no problem navigating our 31 foot Class A plus Jeep Liberty tow in and out without unhooking. There are a lot of long-term campers here who apparently have rightly figured out that $450 a month is way cheaper than renting an apartment or house. Everyone was reasonably quiet, and that's all we ask. There is supposedly a dog run and a bathhouse, but we never found either. Full hook-ups at a reasonable price. I would stay here again.

This park doesn't make a great first impression, but it has its charms. Our site, located in the row for daily and weekly campers, was fairly level and had a nice little green grassy area, concrete patio, and aluminum picnic table. There were also full hookups. We were escorted to our site, something that all parks SHOULD do but too many don't. OTA TV reception was good, but we decided to borrow a converter which provided many more channels as opposed to the OTA 12 or so. There is a $50 deposit on the converter, which is refunded when you return the unit to the office. The bad news: all cable stations are SD because of the convertor. I found it difficult to find areas where I could walk our dogs. Our grassy area was small and there are few other places that are not being used as campsites. Good news. Very few kids. Most of the sites are occupied by perms of long-term residents, but they were quiet and polite. As are most people in Augusta, the manager and owner were friendly and helpful. We had to check out a few days early because of a medical issue, and they gave us a very generous refund. It seems to me that this park is a work in progress, and it will continue to improve. We will be back .

This is a nice park way back in the woods. When we checked in at the gate, they told us to just "find a campsite with no tag on it." Unfortunately, EVERY campsite had a tag. We were about to give up when one of the campers told us the folks whose tag was still there had left. They just couldn't be bothered to take down their tag. The park staff needs to keep an eye on this. Being a state park, it had no sewer or cable. OTA reception was fine, so no problem there. No Wi-Fi either, so we just used our hotspot. There were a LOT of tent campers, but quiet hours were observed. We would probably camp here again.

What a total zoo! We had the misfortune of staying here during a concert weekend, and the park was quite crowded. The girl at the reception desk gave us terrible directions to our site and we ended up at the dead end maintenance building. A nice young security worker was nice enough to escort us to our site, which was surprisingly small for a pull-through. While other RVs were escorted from the office to their site, we were not. Not sure why not. There were kids and dogs everywhere, but by 10 PM the park was quiet. TV cable was OK. Wi-FI was TengoInternet, so we knew it would be terrible. The roads into the campsite area are very narrow, and too many trucks were parked right out in the road where they did not belong, so navigating our Class A and tow was challenging. For $60 plus per night, it it not a place we ever plan on re-visiting. The "Sweetest Town on Earth" left a bad taste in our mouths.
