About Good Vibes

We're retired and spend about half the year on the road. We are Habitat Care-A-Vanners so we combine some communal building with our travels.

Arrived on a Saturday, no answer and response to voicemails. Ended up just picking a site and filing out the registration, paying with a check and leaving it at the office. Very low water pressure (<25 psi). Long, gravel sites in the back. Appears to be a work in progress, since most of the newer sites have new plantings and only one sewer connection for two adjacent sites. Despite the new grading and gravel,the site isn't all that level. My rear was up and the stairs were almost on the ground. The bathroom/shower and laundry are all in one small building. Allows access for only one person. If you are self contained it's no issue.

As other reviewers have noted, the sites are tight at best. We asked for a site on the far side with 50 amp service. When we checked in, there was a bit of a sigh when I said we had a 40' motorhome with four slides. The comment was, "The manufacturers have to stop building these huge units." To that end, he put us in site #1 so there was plenty of space and we just moved over to make sure there was plenty of space between us and the site next to us. The actual pad was way too small for a 40' motor home. Recommend disconnecting the toad before heading to the site. Lots of room just past the check-in area to park and disconnect. The bathrooms were updated, but not super clean. no towels or blow dryers for you hands at the sink. Nothing special, but since we're self contained, it was an okay place to stay.

Access is excellent with gravel roads and sites. The sewer connection had been sawed off with a PVC cap and there were no threads. Good grouping of utilities. There is a nice concrete patio with picnic table and lattice cover. The water valve leaked, but the water pressure was at least 50 psi. The host camper is what I'd call a "character." Friendly and helpful, but opinionated. Lots of dust and wind, but hey, this is West Texas.

This is a good place to stay if you are going to Big Bend NP. It's a haul up to the park, but then everything in that area is a ways away from everything else. There is both regular and diesel fuel available at the General Store, but I fueled up at Alpine before going south to the campground. There is no campground map on the website, but they are suppose to be working on it. The sites are situated with the utilities between two sites, so you alternate nose to tail. If I would have known, I would have asked for a site that pulls in so your nose is pointing North-East. Much better for the patio side to have the shade late in the day. The wind is incredible, so opening your patio awning is not an option until the winds die down. The pool isn't heated and when we were there, the water temp would turn your ankles blue after a few minutes. They cater to lots of rallies and the parking spots on the North side are used for those rigs. Limited number of sites with cable TV access. The WiFi was okay, but slow depending on the number of users. Very limited cell service in most of the area, including the NP. We often only had 1 or 2 dots on our Verizon service.

As mentioned in other reviews, the RV park is quite a ways back, although the roads are paved and well maintained. There are some overhanging trees that you have to cross over into the other lane to avoid. The pull-in site was level and the utilities were well grouped. An excellent place to stop, and a great value for an overnight stop.

After making the reservation on-line and using the PA rate, we were all set for a week at the resort. On checking-in, they said they would give us a "first time customer deal" for only $99 per week. They then took the PA 50% discount so we ended up paying only $11 per night. The campground had cleared out of their "Winter Texans" and we got a spot in the new section by the lake. The 50 amp CB was weak and kept tripping, so I plugged into the next site and left a message at the office. The next morning, a maintenance person showed up and changed the CB. The only downside to this location at the resort is it is close to the highway and there is a lot of road noise.

This is a park that caters to full time residents during the winter. The access roads and pads were all paved and the utilities were grouped well. The only knock on this park is the overgrown vegetation. If you are going to advertise as "big rig" then you had better be trimming the overhanging trees and shrubs so they don't impact the roadways and sites. The host actually had to get two straps to pull the shrub together so we could open our entry door. The hosts seemed afraid to trim the shrubs since they weren't the "owners." Too bad because it was a nice place for a pull-through overnight.

Easy access from I-10. Sites are adequate in size, we were able to park our 40' coach and car. There were branches hanging over the site that would have interfered with our slide. The host came out and cut the offending branches off. The bathrooms were clean and updated. Good strong Verizon signal and local WIFI available.

The Park doesn't take reservations, but if you call them enroute they will tell you if there are sites available. We were looking for a pull through for a short overnight and they had 4 sites open right near the office. They are located close to I75 with good on-off access. The entrance is nicely paved and wide. Sites are level with good utility location and grouping. No cable, but TV antenna reception was good. There is a large pond with ducks and geese. The rail tracks are close-by and the trains are fairly noisy. We had 6 trains go by during the 16 hours we were there, but only one late at night. The water pressure was only about 35psi and tasted like it was treated. An excellent value for a quick overnight.

This park is right off of US80 East of Columbus but convenient to Ft. Benning, downtown and the Chattahoochee River. The entrance is a little narrow with some potholes and two big rigs passing would be tight. It looks like many of the sites are seasonal, but kept up for the most part. We had a nice pull through with full hook-ups near the office. The site was level with well located utilities. Cable reception was very good and the Verizon signal was strong.

When making my reservation, I requested a site in the Day Lilly area since it was shaded and cheaper than the other areas. I was told my 40" motor home would have to go the the Azalea area. The Azalea sites have concrete pads and two available sewer connections, one near the other utilities and one further back in the site. The interior roads are gravel and paved providing easy access to all the sites. We were escorted to our site. There were only a dozen or so rigs in the Azalea area and yet they put another rig right next to us. There is only one shower area for the Azalea area, so it could be pretty busy when the resort is more full. We had several inches of rain on our first night with no flooding or drainage issues. The Azalea sites are in the open with no shade at all.

Our site was on the Fairgrounds side and had full hook-ups with cable TV. When stopping to register, turn left into the lower level next to the office. The upper road is passable with a covered entry that has a 14' clearance. The sites are fairly narrow, but mostly level with pavement. Many of the sites have broken pavement, especially on the edges. The bathrooms are dated, but clean and serviceable. Nice view of the lake from our site. Lots of trees with plenty of shade.

As mentioned in other reviews, the Premium sites near the office (F, C and E Trails) are in good shape with mostly level sites of packed gravel with curbs. The other loops are indeed in need of some repair. The roads are broken-up and many of the sites have broken pavement, narrow and not very level. The website recommends you use the on-line system for reservations (with a $5 service charge). When I made my reservation the site only showed three sites available, however when I arrived the park was not close to full and many of the sites in the Red area were open. The office staff said that it is better to call for reservations because the on-line site doesn't "update" so it won't show all the open sites. The campground is convenient for trips to Stone Mountain Park and you can get a two day pass for the same price as a one day. Lots of roads in the campground to walk on.

This is a beautiful park, with terraced sites on the side of the hill. The views of the Smokey Mountains are spectacular. Our site was quite level with hard packed gravel, however, some of the sites needed a fair amount of leveling blocks. The office staff was very helpful and eager to please. After registering, they have you pull around the office to a flat area to disconnect the tow vehilce. They then led us to our site and helped us park. Garbage pickup is every morning in front of your site. Cable came in very good and WiFi coverage was fine. There was an FMCA rally group there and they spoke highly of the Park staff and facilities. Although the terrain is steep, the access roads were very maneuverable with our 40' coach. Would definitely stay here again.

Quick overnight and the campground is close to both I20 and I520. The park has some long term rentals and several daily/weekly rentals sites near the office. They are upgrading these sites and ours was gravel with timber curbs and a concrete patio. The back of the sites along this row had a tall privacy fence. The grass is watered with a sprinkler system at night so it did get some water on parts of the coach. Coming in from the east, follow the signs for registration, since there are several entrances you will pass before getting to the one that leads to the office. The owner guided us to the lot and helped us park. No real amenities, but a clean well kept park. Would stay here again.
