While the other campers were even friendlier than most campgrounds, I can't say the same for the staff. Views are of a self storage yard, boat repair facility and a junk yard. Interior roads are a mix of dirt, concrete and gravel, crammed with parked cars and watercraft. You won't be using an awning as that would hit your neighbor's slide out. Watch out that you don't trip over the neighbor's sewer hose since their sewer connection is only 5-6 feet from your side door. We had to get 3 campers to move their cars to get out of our pull thru space. If you have a dog, I'd highly recommend going elsewhere as the staff are quite unfriendly about pets and there is really no where to walk a dog. Couldn't wait to leave and would never return.

A nice stop for a night or two. This little, attractive park is right across the street from a park. Staff couldn't be nicer. Most of the sites have concrete patios, shade covered picnic tables, and thick lush grass between the sites. Sites and interior roads are gravel and level with no ruts. It's located in a residential area, but you can walk easily to the main street in Lusk with some good local small town dining options. We'd gladly stop here again.

This park is not for you if you need electricity, have pets, expect courtesy or want a park not next to a scrap yard in an industrial area. The voltage at the park was too low to plug in, then the power went out for half the park and they had to call in an electrician from out of town, which took a few hours (park was only 60% full). Although the electric was in poor condition the "no dogs" signs every 10 yards throughout the park were in good condition. When I came out of the office after checking in the escort made a rude and somewhat off color comment to me. Nothing like first impressions - scrap yard and a jerk in a golf cart to show me to my site. Only the fellow campers are pleasant at this place. Needless to say, we would not return.

I think you'll find this park OK, not remarkable, but good enough. The interior roads are paved and in fairly good condition. The sites are gravel, reasonably level, and have aluminum picnic tables. Daily/weekly sites are pull-through, a little tight to pull into, no shade and little space between. Monthly sites are back-in, have more space between and some shade. Water pressure was very low (18-22 PSI) so we filled our tank and used on board water. There's a nice pool and jacuzzi, a couple of small dog runs and one large one as well as an outside pet wash station. The park is in an industrial area and adjacent to the I-17 freeway. It's a little less than 2 miles from a major retail and dining complex.

The park is located on Lake Panasoffkee and while none of the sites are waterfront, they do have their own boat ramp, docks and air boat rides. Lots of tall trees covered in Spanish moss create plenty of shade. The pool, laundry, clubhouse and bathrooms were clean and well maintained. Very friendly and helpful staff and permanent residents (about 75% of the park are permanent residents in well maintained clutter-free RVs). Site spacing is about average. Interior roads are narrow and need work. Our site was very soft sand and the last party in that site had to be towed out. We'd say the park is just a little bit of work from being an 8 or 9 overall.

Very nice, very well maintained park. Lots of space between sites. Interior roads and pads are asphalt and in excellent condition. Cable worked well, WiFi was above average. Nicely landscaped and decorated in a nautical theme. Nice pool. The laundry is outside and does not have enough machines. The park is 7.5 miles from the town of Cedar Key where there are only a couple of shops and a tiny grocery. The nearest real grocery store is about 24 miles away.

This is a very attractive and well maintained KOA park. Interior roads are paved and in excellent condition. The sites are somewhat larger than average, each has a picnic table, concrete patio and fire pit. On most sites you park on the grass (although a handful have concrete pads). I'll admit I was concerned about getting stuck after 4 straight days of rain and thunder showers forecast for the morning, but we drove out without a problem. The park has all the stuff you would expect, but super-sized - playground, dog run, pool, meeting rooms, activities, decorative landscaping. The only negative is that the park borders the interstate 10 right of way and there is substantial traffic noise in much of the park. We would like to return for a longer stay.

This is an attractive and well maintained park. Staff helped us out several times. Good cable and WiFi. Large fenced dog run. Other reviewers talked about helicopter noise from Fort Rucker, but we were here a week and never heard a helicopter. There is a nearby railroad track and there seemed to be a train passing at 10:30pm nightly, but we kind of like that. Shopping and dining about 5 miles away. We would stay here again.

This is a nice looking park with lots of big grassy areas, shade trees, a little lake and a very good restaurant. Staff very friendly and helpful. The sites are average size, unpaved and not especially level. The interior roads are not paved and pretty rough. Laundry was out of order during our visit. The onsite Mustang Grill, open for dinner, is excellent. We ate there twice and would give five stars to every dish. Overall, we would stay again for a day or two.

We like this park for overnight or a couple of days while traveling I-10. Concrete pads with plenty of room between sites. Big mature trees. Lots of grass. Close to some authentic, but low priced restaurants. Helpful staff. Clean laundry room with newer machines. Can get a little muddy in the rain. We would stay here again.

This is a very nice, well maintained park close to downtown venues like the AT&T center, the Alamo, and the Riverwalk. The park is gated. Interior roads are paved and in pretty good condition. Pads are level gravel with grass and picnic tables. Lots of mature trees throughout. Big grassy playground and dog run. Very quiet. You can drive to the downtown attractions in less than 10 minutes, but a bus ride requires no transfers and costs a fraction of what downtown parking does. Grocery and Walmart are about 10 minutes away also. We would stay here again.

This park is OK for an overnight stop. Off the freeway just enough to be quiet. Not much nearby. Friendly staff.

Very well maintained park with helpful, professional staff. Everything is in excellent condition. Side by side hookups, level gravel pads with a fence and hedge separating wide pull through sites. Interior roads are paved and in excellent condition. 5 minutes to shopping. 5 minutes to Mesilla. Wi-Fi worked well. Curbside trash pickup. We would stay here again.

This park is expertly maintained. Perfect, wide paved interior roads, level gravel pads, asphalt parking space for toad, cement patio, and a citrus tree at every site. Restrooms, laundry, pool, and spa are all pristine. No significant traffic noise, but there are train tracks nearby and a fair amount of trains pass each night. The onsite restaurant, the Florizona Grill, had pretty good food. There is a grocery store and a Camping World 5 minutes away. Other shopping and dining is about 20 minutes away. We stayed for two weeks. Seems like the kind of place people stay for month or more as a warm spot in the winter. We would stay here again.

We stay here to visit our daughter at Northern Arizona University, which is 5 minutes away. The park is in quite poor condition with crumbling interior roads and rutted sites. No maintenance is evident from year to year. There is a fair amount of freeway noise and trains run all night (although I like the sound of the train). There is nothing to really recommend here except proximity to the university.
