Date of Stay:

Friendly staff, but not really a place for someone just passing through. All but 8 sites are for seasonal campers. The overnight sites are grouped closely together on a grassy slope. We will not stay here again.

Date of Stay:

Convenient to I-95. Stayed two nights to visit Jekyll Island and St Simon's Island. The park was clean, nicely landscaped and quiet. We relaxed by the swimming pool after a day of travel. We would stay here again.

Date of Stay:

We selected this KOA campground for the proximity to both Disney and Universal theme parks. We stayed for nine nights. It is close to a major parkway so there is some road noise. The grounds are nicely landscaped. The pool offers a relaxing spot after a day of crowds at the theme parks. We encountered a problem with the laundry; a previous user overloaded the soap dispenser causing a major suds issue with our load. The maintenance staff helped remove the suds and reimbursed us for two loads of wash.

Date of Stay:

A pleasant Escapees park at a low nightly rate for five nights. FHU on dirt and grass under an oak tree that dropped acorns on the roof at night. No cable, but good OTA and good Verizon cell/MiFi coverage.

Date of Stay:

This was an inexpensive overnight stop with a level, pull-thru, FHU site. Good OTA and Verizon cell/MiFi coverage. Would stay again.

Date of Stay:

Stayed four nights while visiting family in the area. Campground road is narrow but workable. Quiet campground during our stay. Site was level and provided FHU. Okay OTA and good Verizon cell/MiFi coverage. We enjoyed a tour of the caverns during our stay.

Date of Stay:

Stayed three nights while visiting plantations in the area. Not big rig friendly. Managers office is at the back of the campground and very inconvenient.

Date of Stay:

Rate is with Good Sam discount for FHU and cable. Very nice park; concrete roads and pads; manicured lawn; new laundry. Many long term residents; but the sites are well maintained. The 50 amp receptacle did not pass the surgeguard test. Good for an overnight stay. We would stay here again.

Date of Stay:

Rate is with KOA discount for FHU and cable. Paved roads and concrete pads. The 50 amp receptacle did not pass surgeguard test. On site restaurant and bar was enjoyable. Good Verizon cell/MiFi reception. We would return.

Date of Stay:

Rate is for Senior Pass discount. Wonderful park in a residential area near Dallas. Large sites many with lake view and shade. Partial hookups; water and electric. Good OTA reception; good Verizon cell and MiFi reception. Walmart is within a mile from the park. Stayed nine nights and would return.

Rate is with KOA discount; but too high for the quality of the park. Okay for an overnight stay. Full hookups with cable. Many workers seem to stay here long term. Narrow roads and low trees.

Date of Stay:

Special weekly Escapee rate of $50 for a week plus metered electric. Escapees members only. This is a mixed review. The cost was very low, the site was large, but the park is not well maintained; full hookups but no cable; some train noise, but not at night; many flying insects that found their way into the RV; 15 miles to the nearest town and shopping; 45 minutes from Carlsbad Caverns. No one at the office to check us out on Sunday morning at 9:00 am; no one answered the after hours number (even two weeks later); we left $10 to cover the electric expense and our phone number, but never heard back. It is doubtful we would stay here again.

Date of Stay:

Escapee nightly rate. Our first time at an Escapee Rainbow Park. Very disappointed. It is convenient to I-10; provides full hookups; and is inexpensive. However, it has very few amenities; it is a gravel parking lot with blowing dust; and nearby trains run all night. We stayed two nights.

Date of Stay:

Escapee rate plus electric (about $2.00 per night). Very nice Escapee CO-OP park. Well maintained, friendly neighbors, and inexpensive nightly rate. Wide roads are big rig friendly; FHU; cable and good Verizon cell/MiFi reception. Walmart nearby. Enjoy a fine Mexican dinner at Mi Casa in Benson. We stayed four nights.

Date of Stay:

No discount rate available. Wonderful campground in a desert setting. Very quiet at night. Large sites with water and 50 amp (no sewer hookup). Good OTA reception. Good Verizon cell and MiFi reception. We stayed for eight nights.
