Was in the South side campground. It was a couple miles down the road from the base. I would been much happier on the North side which was on the base right at the marina/ beach area. Southside was clean with good pads and hook ups.

Date of Stay:

What a gem. Right on the Bay were you could enjoy your morning cup of coffee from the dock or your picnic table. Great pads and hook ups. Best dog walk area I have found. The friendliness of the owners makes you feel very welcome. Close to the beach, Fort Morgan, and the State Park Pier.

Date of Stay:

Not sure where the swinging bridge was. Level sites with good hook ups. Just not the greatest area. Office person wasn't very helpful and called me two days after we were there to see if we were coming. Had to go sit in office parking lot to get wifi.

Date of Stay:

Couldn't really enjoy the campground because the rain and snow made it a mud pit. Had to go to the laundry room to get adequate wifi. Close to Downtown Dallas.

Date of Stay:

Great proximity to Big Bend, restaurants, and the town. CG is more like a big dirt parking lot, but it is dry and hot so didn't expect to much greenery. Sites were level and amenities worked well.

Date of Stay:

Good hookups and great fishing on the pond. The roads into the campground are pretty rough. Campground seems to have a lot of fun family things for the family to do however it rained most of the time we were there so we were unable to enjoy any of them. Friendly campground hosts.

There could not be a better location to tour around St Louis MO. The metro is an easy walk away or security will drive you there. We bought a week Metrolink pass ($25) and were in and out of the city with such ease. The hook ups at the campground were good. The wifi was horrible and the laundry was $3 per load. Get a spot in the 300-400 and you will have shade trees. The campground is clean and safe. Nice picnic and park area. It may look like a big parking lot but it really is a great place.

Hooks worked well. Campground was clean. Location is excellent. Wifi was not good, had to use our own hotspot. This campground is in the best location. Walking distance to Independence and driving distance to so many historical attractions. Do not miss the Union Cemetery in Kansas City.

Hook ups and wifi worked well. Best thing about this part is Location, Location, Location. Beautiful walking path along the river into town. Camp hosts are very helpful giving you directions to avoid Branson traffic.

Nicely kept campground with a great campground store. The owners were the friendliest and most helpful we have ever met. The only thing the would have made our stay better would be to have laundry facilities. There isn't a lot to the town (post office, cafe, and outrigger company). If you have plains to be on the river the outrigger company is excellent. Hope to return one day just to visit with the owners.

For $11.00 a night you can't really complain. All hook ups were fine. It was close to Little Rock. Sites 1-16 seem to be in the older area. This is where we were at. The sites were a mess and very old, run down, unoccupied RVs were in spots. No WiFi and no laundry. If you can try to get in sites 17-34, they are very large pull-thrus and seem better maintained. No base maps and the check-in procedure is awful. Find your site first, then go back to main billeting with your site number to check in.

If you are looking for peace and quiet this is the perfect campground. Great hiking trails, fishing, and a marina with boat rentals and swimming area. Be advised there is no cell phone reception out here. Hookups worked fine. Were here during a severe storm and the park rangers did an excellent job at checking in on us and keeping us informed.

Clean sites, beautiful location, minutes from Hot Springs. All he hook up were good. We had problems with our cable hookup but the campground host immediately came out and fixed the issue. The pool was just redone so it looks great and is very well maintained. Great river views. My only complaint is such a large RV park should have recycling. We loved it so much here we canceled at another park and came back a week later.

What a gem. Excellent hiking, canoeing and so peaceful. Well that is until the weekends but most people settle down by 11 pm. Bathrooms are clean but old. No recycling. The park didn't inform us they had free Wi-Fi, figured it out a couple days in then 2 days later a storm knocked it out. Also didn't inform us there were free washer and dryers in the campground. Drive into Saint Martinville and stop at the Longfellow-Evangeline State Park; it was really informative and beautiful. Wild life is abundant.

This is a beautiful park and the location to Galveston and Houston was good. I would have given it a 10 however there were a couple of things that were not great. First no recycling. Second there are a lot of long term people here that work in the area. No matter what campsite you are in you are close to the park roads so early in the morning you are woken by all those workers. Area is windy but peaceful. Enjoyed all the birds. NASA and Old Downtown Galveston are must dos.
