Very nice campground. We're here to visit Carlsbad Caverns and are staying 5 nites. Might be a few too many for the limited things to see in the area. The campground itself we're very pleased with. We have a beautiful view out our back windows of typical NM landscape, lots of small shrubs with thousands of yellow flowers and the lake in the background. The site was level. We have a nice covered picnic table with a stone wind break. The bathrooms are nice and clean. Some of the sites have 50 amp and sewer but the majority are 30 amp with no sewer. Would definitely stay here again but maybe just a couple of nites when in the area.

Yes, it is a gravel lot off the highway. But it's a clean gravel lot with nice laundry facilities and a couple of really nice complete bathrooms in a type of trailer setup. KOA bought this property not long ago and plan to add more amenities in the future. The check in personnel were excellent. This is not a vacation destination but a great place to stay if traveling Highway 10. We're visiting people in El Paso, and although 15 miles from El Paso, it was the best of all the offerings in the area.

We're traveling West and were told to stop here to see the spring fed pool. Yes, the pool is something to see. Lots of people use it to scuba dive and the campground was full the weekend with divers. The office people were great and the campground was so/so for us. Since we didn't use the pool, not a lot in the area for us to do. The nearest big store was Ft Stockton almost 50 miles away. Be prepared with your groceries. The bathrooms were so/so. If you're traveling US 10 and need a place to stay for the nite, this would be a great park. If you scuba or love to swim this would be a great park in warm weather. The pool is a constant 72 degrees. Most of the campsites had a covered picnic table, grill and fire pit. If you're a large 5th wheel or motor home, request a 50 amp site, the others will be on the small size for you.

We really liked this park. Spacious sites with lots of woods for privacy. The way the campground is laid out, you have lots of bends and curves which gives the property a more private feeling. We had one neighbor across from us, and other than that, others were in sight but a nice distance away. Especially like the check in procedure. They assign you a site, and have a binder with photos of all the sites, and if you see something else in binder that looks more suitable, or you get to your site and see something else around that looks better to you, you call them and they change the site for you. We needed a perfectly level site to have some repair work done, and this system worked really well for us. This is a great location to visit all the attractions in Austin. The campground has a couple of water features that shouldn't be missed, the Upper and Lower Falls. Camped here in travel trailer and will be back. Yes, the daily park use fees are a nuisance but we are in Texas for a month or so, so it made sense to buy the yearly pass.

Our first stay at a Thousand Trail campground and we couldn't be more pleased. I love the fact that they let you pick your site on what's available at the time and we found a great site looking over the Colorado River. It was 50 amp service so that's why we had to pay the extra $3.00 nite. We were told we wouldn't get TV reception off our antenna at this site but that wasn't the case. The TV worked great. AT&T wasn't good here but our Verizon MiFi was. We had strong 4G cell reception. The grounds are large and look to be well maintained. The roads inside the park could use some work. Would definitely come back again. The staff was very friendly and accommodating.

This is a nice little park to stay in for seeing all the surrounding points of interest, i.e., LBJ boyhood home and ranch, Fredericksburg, Texas wildflowers, Texas wineries, Pedernales Falls, etc. The park itself is right on the side of a pretty busy road with some road noise. Next door within walking distance is a grocery store, hardware store, and gas station. The sites themselves are close together with a few trees scattered throughout the park. The management was most helpful in pointing out the points of interest in the surrounding area. The bathrooms with showers were clean and adequate. We would stay again if visiting this area.

We've been traveling for 7 months and this might be our favorite park so far. Wide roads all paved, paved parking pad, picnic table with shelter, fire pit, BEAUTIFUL lake view. I would have given this park a 10 if all the sites were as nice and level as ours. We still had some slope from front to back but side to side was perfect. We were in site #29 lake side. Lots of trees in park. COE parks can't be beat with a senior pass. Would highly recommend.

RV Park located on main road that runs through Galveston. The RV park is located across the road from the beach and the beach access is across the street and to the right not really convenient to walking but a short bike ride or take your car. The park was beautifully maintained with 15-20 feet of grass between all the pull-through units. Two shower areas were very clean. There were two pools, a spa and miniature golf. We didn't use any of these but they were available. The park is about 11 miles or so from the heart of the city. We typically don't use the amenities at a park so prefer a state park that has more natural beauty but we were in Galveston to visit friends and this park served it's purpose very well. Would definitely return if coming back to area. We were in site 14 that is in the first row from the road. There is some road noise but the cool evenings kept our windows closed so that was not a problem.

We stayed at this park as part of a caravan tour. It served its purpose very well. All the sites are pull-through. Not a lot of spacing between sites. The grounds are well cared for. The bathrooms were clean and convenient. For vacation destinations we prefer state parks, but when traveling the country to "see" things, a park like this will do just fine. Nice location for visiting Cajun country. Loved the food, the culture, the music of the people of this area.

Nice little city RV park in Abbeville, LA. We had a great site that backed into the woods. Gravel pad. We're here on a caravan of the Cajun Country and so far this is best park out of 3. Note no restrooms or showers and no tents allowed. If you're self contained would highly recommend this park. Even met a couple fr0m Abbeville who camp here just to get the feel of being in the woods. Would highly recommend if visiting Cajun Country.

An okay campground for visiting Cajun Country and New Iberia. We're here with a group and this is base camp for a few days. We're basically in a grass field with a small cement pad, full hook-ups, cable TV and really good WiFi at the moment. The laundry room and bathrooms are adequate. Would like to see a little more money spent on infrastructure. For visiting the area, the campground is fine. Louisiana State Parks better for vacation destinations.

We were here to begin a tour with our trailer with 26 other trailers. Very friendly check-in. We were taken to our site and helped to back in. We were in the inside loop that faced the clubhouse and play area. The weather was rainy so there was not much going on in the campground. There seemed like there might have been a lot of seasonals on the premises because I saw a lot of trailers but no people. There were two toilets and 2 showers which didn't seem like enough for the size of the campground, but I think most of the trailers were self contained and didn't need them. Don't know what that would be like if the weather was nice and there were lots of people around. We were parked on grass with a picnic table and fire pit. The facilities for us were fine for why we were there but would not make this a camping/vacation destination. Lots to see and do in Cajun Country. Loved the ambiance of the country side, the people, the food, and the scenery. A must do is the zydeco breakfast at Cafe des Amis in Breaux Bridge which is about 20 minutes away. Get in line by 7:15 a.m. for a real fun experience.

This is another beautiful Louisiana State Park. We had a beautiful flat site that backed up to the woods and also had woods on the door side. Some of the sites have decks. We were in the south loop and preferred it to the north loop except their bathrooms were nicer. When is the last time you saw a trough urinal and gang showers in a bathroom? Antiquated, yes. Clean, yes. Some of the sites have terrible slopes so be careful when choosing a site. Lots to do in this park and I'm sure it's really beautiful in the spring and fall. I'd be concerned in the summer about bugs because of the amount of water around. The park is hilly. The WiFi was pretty useless but our Verizon MiFi worked well. ATT&T did not work so well. They really need to update the bathrooms in the south loop and make more of them available especially to the farthest end of the loop. Would definitely stay here again.

This was another great Louisiana State Park. Sites were nicely spaced. Most all backed up to the woods. Most all had wood decks attached to the paved pads. Restrooms were clean and convenient. The park had multiple areas of interest, i.e., pond, river, hiking trails, nature center. Would give this park a 10 if cell service was a little stronger. Highly recommend. (P.S. Check out Charlie's and Lil' Miss Winnies for food in Springfield, and Paul's in next town of Ponchatoula for breakfast or lunch and antique shopping.)

The park itself is huge. The campground is just a small part of the park. We were camping here to be close to New Orleans and didn't take advantage of anything the park had to offer. Most of the amenities were geared towards warmer weather and it was colder when we were there in January. There is a lot of standing water in marshy areas and I would be concerned about bug activity in warmer weather. I liked the fact the camping area was arranged so that all the sites backed up to a natural area as opposed to backing up to another trailer. A number of the sites had decks attached directly to the site that I would look for if we were to stay there again.
