Second stay in this park during the past 5 years. I really can't find anything to complain about. Hosts very nice. Excellent Wi-Fi and cable. Free coffee and doughnuts in the AM. Large spaces. Easy access from freeway, but not too noisy. Indoor pool. Passport America. Can't beat this place for the price and I'd surely stay here again. Solid 10.

Nice park with very friendly owners. Nothing fancy here, but a good overnight stop and they're next door to the #1 Trip Advisor restaurant in town: Del's. Spaces were large, electrical boxes appeared to be new and the spaces in the rear are well away from any highway or railroad noise. WiFi worked superbly. The front of the place is a great old Rte 66 motel. While the rooms are no longer available for occupancy, it's a fun place to stroll around and see what an old 1940's motor court looked like. We'd surely stay here again. Rate is Passport America rate.

My second stay here over a six year period and I really can't see that it's much different than 2005. Staff is friendly, beautiful views and stars at night, yet only 5 minutes or so to downtown Alpine. I'm not big on pools or fancy clubhouses and appreciate not having to pay for amenities I wouldn't use. I'm in a site furthest from the office and the Wi-Fi works well and is now included in the daily rate.

We just spent six weeks at this park and found it very adequate for our needs. We tend to spend a lot of time clubbing in Austin and our usual park (Oak Forest) was full, so we decided to try staying a bit further out of town; however, because the park is on Hwy 71, the commute time was only a few minutes more, though the mileage was about 10 miles further. At this time, most residents are long-term stays as a result of heavy construction work in the Austin area. While I recognize that some RVers tend to turn their noses up at parks with high percentages of full-time residents, the controls in this park are such that everyone was very courteous and we neither observed nor heard any behaviors that were bothersome. Those staying just a few nights are positioned in the front of the park and somewhat isolated from the other residents. Management is friendly and willing to go the extra mile. There is a security gate. Wi-Fi and cable work well and a satellite system would work well from most sites. There's a lovely Hyatt Resort (Lost Pines) just a mile or so away if you feel like going out for a nice meal in a nice atmosphere and you might also want to try the pork ribs at Benny's BBQ just down the road. We will be returning for another stay in a few months.

This is a pleasant enough place to stop and tour the local area. I am rating it a bit higher due to the Passport America rate, which makes it decent value. My main concern is the road noise from Hwy 7, which the park fronts. If you choose to stay here and are a light sleeper, earplugs or a white noise machine (or both) would be a good idea. The noise drops off late at night. The facilities are pretty basic, but there is a laundry room. The pool is currently filled with concrete sections of a road and doesn't make for the best ambience. The owners are VERY friendly and seem to be nice people trying to make it in a bad economy. At this writing, we are the only over-nighters in the park and there are a couple mobile homes and RVs occupied by permanent residents. With the exception of the road, things are quiet here and we haven't even seen any of the other tenants. Wi-Fi works OK, but can get a bit slow when others are using it. There is no formal antenna, just the router in the office which provides decent coverage in spaces close to the office. It's an easy 7 mile drive into Harrison from the park.

My rating is partly based on the very reasonable rates of only $7.50/night with Passport America. There are no bathroom facilities and this is a very basic RV park. Sites are gravel and reasonably level, Wi-Fi isn't great, but it is serviceable. This park has some fulltimers, but overall it is very quiet. Staff is very friendly and there's a pretty good sized antique mall adjacent to the camping area which warrants a look or two. It's a little bit off the beaten track, but we found it a good base to explore the surrounding area without having to do a lot of hilly driving. And at $52.50 per week, this is one of the best value parks we've enjoyed.

Nothing special and a bit over-priced at $28, but the park offers easy access to Fayetteville and management is very friendly. The bathrooms were clean, but could use a little sprucing up since the concrete floors and cinder block weren't very inviting (we were happy to use our own self-contained facilities). Wi-Fi works very well and we weren't at all bothered by any road noise, barking dogs or the Tyson plant next door (don't worry, there's no noise and no smell at all from the facility). Be sure to check out Mrs Deen's Southern Food just down the street; it's a Fayetteville institution and a great place to sample real Southern Home Cooking at very moderate prices.

This is a nice, well run park with very friendly staff. We stayed mid-week in March and the campground was nearly deserted; nevertheless, the laundry and clubhouse facilities were open and the pool had water in it (too cold to swim). This CG is right on the shores of Lake Eufala and just 2.5 miles from route 69, though one has to proceed slowly as the county roads are a bit rough. We enjoyed the peace and quiet and the Passport America rate. WiFi worked "just OK" from the sites right next to the clubhouse.

I reviewed this park last year during a construction phase on site and with a huge construction project going on next door. Both projects are finished and this is a great place to stay now. This year, we're up in the nightly area and wifi is good, staff is pleasant, park is well-maintained and the proximity to DT Austin is very good. My only beef is that grocery stores are few out here, but the rest of the package more than makes up for it. Our rate is based on Passport America. You do not need an AARP card to get the best rate as was implied by the previous reviewer.

Based on my criteria, this place is a 9. It's close to the interstate, but far enough away so the traffic noise isn't a problem. Good, free wi-fi is available. There are plenty of sites where one can use a rooftop satellite dish. Sites are level (gravel though, and this is why I didn't give them a 10). Very friendly management. Good maintenance. Pleasant enough surroundings and the units belonging to permanents seem to be well-maintained indicating a caring management intent on providing a nice setting for us overnighters. Easy access to DT OKC and WalMart, Home Depot, Camping World, and lots of dining options are within a 2 mile radius. I am grateful that they don't have a ton of other amenities that I wouldn't use (pool, clubhouse, playground) as it keeps the rates very reasonable. I pass through OKC often, and this is where I'll stay from now on.

Nice, well run, friendly park with exceptionally easy access to I-40 and DT Little Rock. Although we didn't use them, they offer laundry, pool, sauna and jacuzzi. WiFi worked very well. This park would rate at least a 9, except for the freeway noise. One of the noisiest parks we've ever visited. If you stay here, try to position yourself near the front of the park, though you may have to pay more to use the premium sites located there. Otherwise, bring both earplugs and have a source of white noise because it gets really LOUD with the truck traffic only a few (50)feet from the park boundry.

A decent place with relatively easy access to many of Nashville's attractions/clubs. Not sure why anyone pays the additional $$$ to stay at the nearby KOA or Jellystone, as this place has it all. Wi-Fi worked very well, laundry was only $1, staff was very pleasant and responsive to our complaints about barking dogs in adjacent campsites. There was a problem with water pressure while we were there, but the staff was working on it and assured us that it was unusual. In terms of attractions, the Opry is 5 minutes away (as is the huge Opry Mills Mall with a 20-something plex theater), the Hermitage about 20 minutes, DT Nashville 20 minutes. Many eating options in the nearby area and Camping World is next door. We'd surely stay here again.

This is a great park and very close to all the Memphis attractions. Graceland is about 10 minutes and you can get downtown/Beale in 20 minutes. Amazingly for a state park, there is a laundry room with 3 washers and 3 dryers. Washers are a mere $1, driers .50. There's even an ice machine in the laundry room. Don't believe I've ever seen an ice machine in any CG. Staff is friendly as is the camp host. Prices increased on 4/1/2008 to $20, $18 for seniors and $16 for seniors with TN plates. The only reason this park didn't get a 10 is the airport noise. I'm very surprised it hasn't been mentioned previously. When those Fed Ex jets start taking off around 11PM, you will know it. Friday nights are lighter traffic and there's no traffic on Saturday night. A white noise machine (you could use a bedroom overhead fan) and earplugs were essential. All in all, this is probably the best bet in Memphis, though you'll have to do without park Wi-Fi and when the trees fill out in the late spring, satellite TV will be difficult.

This place is everything an RV park should be. It's also well-located to the attractions of the area, including Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg and the Smoky Mtn National Park. Owner's are an extremely friendly young couple who recognize what it takes to make RVers happy: Great wifi, a clean park, friendly check-in, knowledge of the area AND they take Passport America. Be sure to ask at the front desk for the new restaurant discount program, which includes some of the area's most popular restaurants, not just places that are starving for business. Congrats to Creekside for getting my first 10 out of roughly 20 reviews.

A fine, no frills CG at a great rate (Passport America). We enjoyed the riverfront sites and the fact that the owner just paved the sites, so leveling was easy. Access to the Biltmore Estate, downtown Asheville and I-240 was quick and easy (see note below). Owner was friendly and also operates an RV repair business within a couple hundred yards of the CG. Would have rated this park higher, except that there is no wifi (owner noted that he is working on it) and the highway noise might be a factor to those who don't use white noise or earplugs. When you leave the park, be careful entering the I-240 access ramp. There's an island that makes it impossible for a large rig with tow vehicle to negotiate. Better to hook up in the public park directly across from the ramp and enter the ramp from the driveway out of the public park, rather than making a left from the access road onto the ramp. It's not a big deal to do so, as the ramp is only about 1/4 mile from the campground.
