I was familiar with the area which is a fast deteroiating industrial area with a very rough and pot filled road (France Road). My wife made comments about it and then I reminded her of all the many campgrounds we have been to how many are located in "not so nice " parts of towns. That aside Pontchartrain Landing is an Oasis on France Rd. It is fenced in and has security. The campsites are fairly spacious with reasonable spacing although when we arrived we could not back into our reserved space because a vehicle in an adjoin sight was not parked properly and we could not make the turn. We have a 41' 5th wheel which can be a challenge at times. We were moved to an available pull thru right away and it worked out fine. We did have a problem with the 50amp circuit breaker kicking out on occasion - I informed the office and it was changed out right away. Based on other sites in NOLA this is a great site and we would stay here again. Really enjoyed the entertainment at the Light House Bar which is on site. Good location to get to areas around NOLA.

We have been RV'ing a little over two years and we have found the "Mecca" of a campground! Nestled on the side of a hill overlooking a lake the campsights are the best we have ever expierenced. There are many options but, we were in Lot #61 - a back-in with a freestanding full fireplace. The view is to die for and the lots are paved with some grass trip. Landscaping in the campground is immaculate and well kept. WiFi was good - we did not use their Cable because we have a dish. Pigeon Forge and all of that is about 15 minutes away across the lake but, we only went over once - stayed in the campground. We'll be back soon!

This was an interesting stop. We were on our way from Shreveport to Atlanta and needed a one nighter. No problem getting in and the young man on duty put us in a easy pull thru. The park is in two sections, one has many full timers and smaller sites and just across the street is a vey large flat area with quite a few spots for large RV's. Amenities are basic but well kept. I get the feeling this is a staging area for Alabama tailgaters as the University is a short ways off. We stayed humble with our UGA regalia. Would stay here again for a short stay!

THE BEST WIFI EVER!!!! This RV Park is located just a few miles off I-20. Well secluded area with level spots. Most are gravel however we chose a premium pull thru for our 41' 5th wheel. You must be careful and take your time turning into the pull through because the turns are tight. Once in there is a concrete pad for the RV and a patio area with metal table and chairs. While here we watched many Class A Coaches come in and not able to park straight because of the tight turn. The park is very clean - very nice laundry - my wife used it while here - We did not use the cable because we have a Direct TV Dish. We stayed here 5 nights and would camp here again.

We were here for 10 days while I visited customers in Houston. The wife and little dog enjoyed the day while I was out. Spacious concrete pads with sitting and picnic table area. Thick grass and palm trees cover open areas (there is no dirt or gravel). Campground has a security fence around it and electric gates in and out. I think this tends to keep any casual traffic out. It is about a 200yd walk to the beach where you can rent umbrellas etc. The location is right off Seawall Blvd and you can drive down to Pleasure Pier within a few minutes - much to do there and you can explore "Old Galveston" We cooked fresh seafood at our campground and met many nice people. As always the WIFI was weak but, we made do. We'll be back here for sure next year. DON'T FORGET MOSQUITO SPRAY - THEY WILL "TOTE" YOU OFF (only negative)

Easy on & off I-20. Flat level area - many potholes going in and out. Good for overnight stop and would stay again for one night. Very nice dog park and play area for kids.

Date of Stay:

As stated the park lies at the end of a residential area but we were pleasantly surprised! Easy pull in (41' 5th wheel) level gravel sites. Clean campground - very few extras but THE WIFI WORKED GOOD! Would easily stay here again for a few nights.

Nice park easy asscess from I-40. Roads inside campground are all level and gravel. We had a "back in" to the river - great view. The sights are the tightest we have expierenced maybe other than once. You are right on top of each other - my awnnings almost touched the RV next to me when I let them out. The park is very neat and clean and quite - we will most likely stay somewhere else next time in this area.

We have stayed at other Yogi Bear Parks and they have always been very good, good staff, and good amenities. They cater to families and kids but that was no problem as we had a site well in the back away from all the activities. Quite at night. I did want to mention there are two other parks virtually next door Two Rivers and KOA Nashville - they are equally as good from what I saw and there are no less than three RV dealers including Camping World. The OPRY hotel is about two miles away. Our sight was a pull thru easy to get in and out of - all have shade trees. My wife did the laundry and they have two to choose from. It is a little pricy at $51. a night but, you are paying for location which was OK. We would stay here again.

As usual we checked out RV Park Reviews for a one night stop and this was the choice. Very pleasant surprise. Compact park but very well laid out - we had an easy pull thru - level gravel sight easy hook up. There is a stream on the backside that looks very interesting for fly fishing and Maggie Valley is a short drive. Cannot comment on the WiFi because we did not get the code when we came in. We will look for a reason to come back here!

This is a basic RV Park and probably the best for the area. Not a lot of shade but sites were flat, gravel, and very decent spacing. The store was a little worn for wear but the staff is very helpful and friendly. WiFi is weak - nothing new. My wife did laundry (no a/c) - but, got it done. Our Mini Schinauzer enjoyed the collection of Donkeys. We stayed here mainly on reviews from this site and I would stay here again if in the area. Wilson is a great little town - love the Whirlygigs!

If you are a NASCAR fan this is the place to camp! Located within 200yds of I-95 we thought we were next to Richmond Raceway. The noise of the expressway, airplanes from a nearby airport, sirens, was almost too much to bear. Sitting outside at times you could not even hear each other talk. We had just picked up a new 5th wheel across the way and were going to stay here a few nights to shake it down for problems. We had no problems we are happy to say. Aside from the extreme noise the campground is very clean, easy to maneuver through, good staff, and many good amenities. Had I known in advance I would have asked for a site not so close to the expressway but, many of the good ones are occupied by seasonal units. Understandable. Good place for one or two nights.

We were on our way home so based on RV Park Reviews recommendations we pulled in without a reservation for a one night stay. The husband and wife team were very helpful. We got a nice pull thru but it only had 30 amps which was OK for one night. Small but, very clean campground. About 50% of seasonal RV's. Some highway noise from I-77 but we slept through. We would stay here again for a short stay.

Date of Stay:

About 50% Seasonal sites - we had campsite on the back side. It was level but took several attempts to get in because of another campsite had a large and very long motorhome (seasonal unit). We could not use the fire ring because it would have set our rig on fire because it was so close. I observed most all of the campsites were this way - doesn't make any sense because there is plenty of room to locate them away from the rigs. They advertised LP fills but when I went to the office the young lady running it said they did not sell LP. (don't think she wanted to be bothered). This was an OK campground and we were gone on day trips most of the time. This is not a campground I would spend a lot of time in.

First Off - we will never stay here again! Secondly the facilities are very good and our RV site was good. We were trying to make reservations and wanted to check out on a Saturday - I was informed they were having a Halloween activity and would not allow checkout on Saturdays because of safety reasons because there would be so many children around and activities going on - we decided to wait until Sunday. The rates are absorbent! Over $100. per night. On Saturday truck loads of kids were in the campgrounds for Trick or Treat. We went to the store and bought candy to have for the kids. I was talking with some of the parents and they told me they were from the local area and car loads of people loaded up and came to the campground to get candy for their kids. From a security stand point this bothered me. In addition on Saturday we observed several RV's coming and going during the day. After discussing this with the management it was obvious it is all about the money and they don't care about the campers. The good thing is they will never get any of our money again.
