Rate is based on a monthly rate, not including electric. We stayed here for four months during the winter. Park is well laid out with a few pull thrus for nightly/weekend folks. The RV sites are intermingled with well-kept park models. The pool is heated and the hot tub is lovely. The billiard room has six tables and is very well kept. Since this park caters mostly to snowbirds, there are a lot of activities: music on some weekend nights, craft get-togethers, coffee and donuts, billiard club, ladies' lunches... the list goes on. The owners are friendly and involved and the price is very reasonable. There is a nice dog walk that is actually easy access to the desert. There is also easy access to the ATV trails that surround Mesquite. They're good for hiking as well as ATVing. We liked this park so much that we made reservations for next winter.

Stopped here for an overnight due to high winds. This is a very well laid out park and very easy to maneuver for even the larges of rigs. Wi-Fi and cable were both strong. The bathrooms are absolutely spotless and the showers are quite large. This park is right off the highway, but the noise wasn't bad at all.

As others have mentioned, this park is an undiscovered gem. About 2 miles off I-40, it's quiet and uncrowded. The showers were spacious, hot, and had good water pressure. They were not coin op, like some state parks' showers. The stars are absolutely amazing in this rural park.

Above price is based on a monthly rate. We stayed in this park for a little over a month and really enjoyed it. The sites are parallel park, which is something I've never seen. It gives you a wonderfully private yard, with fences making up three sides and your rig making up the 4th. Don't be too concerned with parallel parking - host leads you to your site and will tell you exactly what to do. Sites are level, gravel pads with wonderful, grassy lawns. The park is well maintained and pretty quiet, with the exception of some truck and train noise. There is a RR crossing, so there are train whistles. The closer to the front you are, the louder they'll be. They really only come by during the day, 7am to 7pm. Staff and longer term residents are very friendly. They have pot lucks for football and play Wii games in the common room some nights. The pool and hot tub are well kept and clean. Be sure to follow the directions given to you by the staff, as some GPS systems will take you down a one-way road heading the wrong direction. Google Maps on my smartphone gave the correct directions, but it's something to be aware of.

We stayed here for a week. That included Memorial Day weekend when it was packed. They handled the crowds well and even managed to let us switch sites when it became apparent that our MH would not get level or even fit in the spot originally assigned. Why they assigned that site in the first place is in question, but they took care of it. Showers are push button and don't get very warm. There are two nice pools; one is supposed to have adult swim hours but no one enforces this. Has ice cream in the shop and a very well stocked camp store. Trails are very nice and connect to trail system in the nearby county park.

Above rate reflects a monthly rate. This is a brand new park with great amenities that seems to have been designed by an RVer for RVers. They have the best bathrooms I've seen in five years of full timing. Two pristine bathhouses with laundry rooms have large tiled showers with changing rooms and individual rooms with toilets, not stalls. Sites are cement - large, level with wonderful grass lawns. Shrubs separate the sites. Streets are wide and paved and easily navigated by Prevosts towing trailers. There is some highway noise due to the proximity to I-95. Close to beautiful Jekyll Island and shopping. Friendly owners/staff are the icing on the cake.

We stayed in this park overnight on our way between NJ and GA. It is a lovely park with all pull thru sites, reasonable rates and friendly owners. They really know their target audience - travelers on their way up or down I-95. The owner led us to our site on his bike with a flashlight to make sure we got settled in the dark. The roads of the park were nice and wide and the sites a fine gravel that was completely level. Very clean bathrooms and showers and a lovely setting with a little lake. Right off I-95 but the noise isn't too bad. I would stay here longer if time allowed - there seemed to be some interesting sites in surrounding towns.

The rate reflects a monthly rate. This park is well staffed with very friendly people who go out of their way to help you though they don't always communicate with each other. We made reservations for the month of November, only to be told after we'd been there for a week that the water would be turned off at our site. We had to move sites to one with only gray water sewer and they closed the bath house. We then had to move to a completely different park 40 minutes away for the last week of our stay since they decided to close the park all together. The bathhouse was out of date and not worth it - we used the rig shower. They had a lot of weekend activities. I think this is a good place for seasonals with kids looking for weekend getaways in the summer.

The rate listed reflects a monthly rate. I think this place would be nice if you were staying a few days, as the short term sites are in the front of the property and very nice, though the construction next door is noisier from those sites. The monthly sites are in the back and share facilities (laundry room and bathhouses) with the adjacent mobile home park. I was ogled and whistled at several times by some unsavory characters hanging out by the facilities, which didn't increase my comfort in this park. The manager is possibly the most unfriendly and least accommodating person I've dealt with, though the staff is very helpful until the manager finds out and nixes anything bordering on customer service. We ended up leaving here to go to a different park in the area because we were so unhappy with this place. Long term sites are tight and marginally level gravel, drive into downtown involves a road with a lot of traffic lights and stop and go.

I didn't actually see this campground in the light since we used it for an overnight stop. The manager was very friendly and helped us get into our site, making sure our slide cleared the tree and hook ups in our site. The bathrooms were sparkling, as were the showers. They do a good overnight business and have long pull thru w/e sites right by the entrance for people just wanting to get off the road for the night. We saw several large motorhomes with their toads still attached. Would definitely stay here again. The store also has pizza.

I wanted to rate this one better because it's a beautiful place, the sites are large (grass covered gravel, not paved as previously posted) and well kept and the staff was friendly. Unfortunately, their website is misleading and some amenities (pavilion, wifi) that are listed are only for seasonal campers. The woman in the office moved us to another site when we said we had to leave if we couldn't get the wifi signal (my husband works full time), but the pavilion couldn't be opened for us no matter what. Also, our site hadn't been used yet this season and still had sanitizer in the pipes, a rather nasty surprise when I took that first sip of water. I would hesitate to stay here again.

Date of Stay:

This park will be really good once the new owners do some work. The bathrooms were mostly clean, but so old it was hard to tell. One of the shower stalls was peeling and one seemed not to have hot water. The pool was closed, so I don't know about that. Also, the water has a very odd smell from the metals in it. I for one did not drink it. The wifi was pretty reliable, and when it did go out, they at least knew what to do about it. Sites are a good size, nice and shaded with some grass that could use some work since there's dirt showing through.

Date of Stay:

This is a good place for overnight, or a week like we're doing. Lots of long term residents, but very well kept rigs (professional skirting, tidy lawns, well kept sheds, etc.) and friendly folks. Only one family style bathroom that was very clean, but never had a problem getting into it. Our rig is small, so not sure how hard navigating with a bigger rig would be, but there are some larger fifth wheels here, so it must be possible. Close to highway and train tracks, but highway noise is negligible because the highway is elevated and trains didn't keep us awake. Wifi is supposed to be for monthlies only, but my husband explained he needs to work while on the road and they added us onto their secure network. Storm shelter right next door if that becomes necessary. Cute, well kept little park, very reasonable rates and near area historic attractions.

Date of Stay:

We stayed here overnight on our way across Kansas. Clean, cheerful bathrooms, easy to navigate, at least in the back section. Didn't notice any highway noise, just a couple of trains, but they didn't wake us up. Friendly owners/managers (not sure which) and sufficient office hours for late check ins. Close to historic district and route 50.

This is the most pleasant looking park in the immediate area, with very easy access to Garden of the Gods, Pikes Peak and the other attractions in the area. We were here in the off season, which was good since this campground is TIGHT. My husband, who is very adept at backing our tiny 25' trailer into spots, had to do a lot of wiggling to avoid trees. We checked in after hours and they had us in a spot next to a run down permanent trailer, but the next morning they were happy to let us move to a better spot. Both spots were difficult to maneuver into because of the trees planted six inches from the roadway, but the sites themselves are a good size. Also, had it not been the off season, I'm not sure where we would have parked our tow vehicle, since we had to park it in the empty spot next to us (with park approval). Staff really friendly and helpful. The bathrooms are old and could do with a redo, but they are clean.
