Ok for over night stay. Gravel sites that are not level is the biggest draw-back to the park. Both front wheels of the 40' Class A motor home were off the ground by 6" in order to be level. Had to drop the wheels down to touch the ground, thus leaving us not level for the night. Staff very friendly and polite. Easy in and out. These unlevel sites were all in the 50 amp sites. The 30 amp sites appeared to be more level. Wi-Fi was free but at times slow. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great place to take the kids. We had so much fun in the river looking at the Dinosaur tracks. The little museum they had was great as well because it gave us some relief during the mid-day heat. Campsites were clean, and I loved how historic the place was. It was great for my kids to learn some history! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
A good state park with a lot of dinosaur information, including per-historic tracks in the riverbed. Near the Fossil Rim Animal Park and a good place to stay for a few days while you take in the attractions in the area. Great pie in town at the Pie Peddlers. Staff very informative and helpful. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

Good park for walking and biking. Dinosaur prints were very interesting! However, there is no phone or internet service and no TV antenna reception. We were in site 16, but all the sites seemed fine. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Enjoyed our stay. Grandkids loved the dinosaur tracks. Picnic tables are on opposite side of RV at most sites so not user friendly. There is a long set of stairs behind one of the campsites that takes you down to the river. 7 dollars per person per day park use fee. Had several sites that would work for groups (up to 3 trailers). Restrooms were very nice and clean and central to campsites. Would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Rate does not include $7 per person entry fee which is waived for annual pass holders. The dinosaur tracks were not visible due to recent rains which made the river too high and dirty, but it was still fun to be in the water. Some of the sites are very close together and would probably be best for a family or group that needs more than one site. Some sites are very tight to get into so a big rig might not be able to fit. Local attractions Dinosaur World and Fossil Rim Wildlife Safari make this a great place to stay. We will definitely be back. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The sites are really great. Most are spacious and level. We stayed in #4 and we had lots of room to spread out. There are walking trails through all the sites leading to the bathrooms and along the river. The river was wonderful. Shallow with some deeper areas for swimming. We spent hours playing in the water, skipping rocks and catching crawfish. The dinosaur tracks are cool but kind of hard to see. We weren't able to eat outside because of the massive amount of flies. We must've killed a hundred of them. Bathrooms were clean. The price of the campsite does not include the $7 per adult per day fee you have to pay. Kids 12 and under are free. We would love to come back here again armed with fly swatters and fly paper. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Great park for the kids. Nice fire pit / BBQ grill at each campsite, but watch the lengths of the sites. Most of them were fairly short, so our 30' 5th wheel was too long for most of them. Park was well kept, friendly park personnel and great trails. We'll come back for sure. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We took the kids camping for the weekend. I am glad we made reservations since there were only a couple of spots left when we checked in. It's a beautiful park with lots of trails. We had a nice hike through the woods. The kids loved it! The fire pits and picnic tables are nice. We would camp here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is another beautiful state park that is well maintained and comforting. We were behind schedule so I called ahead to check availability. The office staff was very gracious and assured us of a place to stay for the night. We did arrive after hours and were able to find a spot with no problem; however we were here in the middle of the week. This is a very popular park so weekenders will need to have reservations. It is heavily wooded in the camping area, giving you a little more privacy than normal. There is a lot of wildlife to look at and nice scenery all around the area. The dinosaur tracks are the biggest draw. Get up early and head to the sights to see them before the masses get there. I ran by them on my morning run and they were easily visible. By 11:00 the silt in the river had been disturbed and the tracks clouded up. I can’t leave out the trails in this park. Bring your walking stick and bug spray. You will not be disappointed. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The nightly rate does not include daily admission fees. We bought an annual State Park Pass for $60.00 that is good for a full year. The staff is extremely friendly at check-in and at the park store. Sites we rustic, tree covered, with no grass. River access was good, and the dinosaur tracks are well marked for visitors to see. Despite cool weather, the kids had a blast swimming in the river. Dump station is not level, so don't expect to be able to fully empty your tanks. It rained almost the whole time we were there, and without grass, our site was muddy. We will return again, but in warmer weather. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We brought our grandson to this park and had a wonderful experience. The staff was great and the trails were a lot of fun. This park is a wonderful place to learn about Dinosaurs. Thanks again! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The park staff were very friendly and accommodating. The park is laid out in a somewhat confusing manner, so get a park map before you leave the park office. It's a beautiful park with lots of shade and good access to the river, although you have to drive to it. The river access is not close to the camp sites. The sites are nice and most have trees providing some separation between you and the next site. Some sites are more secluded than others. Some sites are also quite a hike to the bathhouse, while some are closer. Park staff can tell you which are closer to restrooms or more secluded. Restrooms were clean and recently renovated. Showers looked nice, but I didn't use them so I can't comment on hot water availability. Only two areas provided good access to the river and the dinosaur tracks, even though more are listed on the map. This is a beautiful park with good amenities and friendly staff. We would camp there again. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
We enjoyed this park very much. The scenic trails by the river are very well maintained as is the campground as a whole. We were fortunate that the river was low and the dinosaur tracks were visible. Campground personnel were very knowledgeable and helpful. The grandchildren loved it. We will definitely return to Dinosaur Valley. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Took our 4 year old grandson here and he loved it. Lots of things to do in the area, Fossil Rim Wild life area, Dinosaur World and the Tracks in the river bed at the state Park. Sites are large and all are back-ins, We have a 40 foot diesel pusher and the camp staff was very helpful in informing us which sites were large enough for us. Park sites only have 30 amp with water and no sewer. Roads were wide enough for us to travel through and there were no over hanging branches, The park does have lots of trees. Our site was level, all sites have a picnic table, grill and fire pit. Would recommend this park to any one with children or grandchildren. This park does get full on weekends so it is a must to have a reservation for the weekend. During the week is the best time to go, not as crowded and a great amount of choice of sites. Would have rated this park a 10 except for the no sewer at sites and only 30 amps We camped here in a Motorhome.
$25 fee, plus an entrance fee per person makes this a pricey campground. Smaller trailers and MH won't have any problem with the narrow roads, but in a larger MH or our 36' 5th wheel, the narrow road and dense cedars make it interesting to get into a site. The sites are close together, and most are back-in. With a larger rig, the number of usable sites to back into is limited. The area is a great area to explore and have fun in, but because of the volume of people so close together, do expect to have peace and quiet. We arrived mid week without reservations, but it was March. However, we couldn't stay for the weekend because all of the sites were reserved. We will stay again, but try to miss the crowds. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This was our second time at this park. The first time we went it rained most of our trip. We hiked the trails, which were great and also made for some great photos. The atmosphere is friendly here. The dinosaur track areas are neat to see and the rocks we crossed to get there was exciting to cross with the water flowing over. Our dogs chased balls in the water and enjoyed it. The water was a little chilly when we went, but what isn't in Texas during March. The dinosaurs at the front of the park also make for creative photos and add a great element to this park! My husband and I stayed here with our two nephews and 3 dogs. I love staying at this park because of the trails, the flowing water, and the nice atmosphere! We will be back again! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Beautiful area, even if the sites are very close together. The dense cedar trees make it seem like you are truly in an isolated area. However, there are several negatives to this campground: 1) price is higher than other Texas state parks (maybe because it's so popular and close to Fossil Rim Wildlife Park) and 2) fills up almost a year in advance and because you never know about the Texas weather while camping in spring and fall, you take a chance that you'll be camping in a downpour. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
Sites are level and wide but a bit close -- offset by the foliage, giving somewhat of a sense of seperation. Each site has picnic tables and fire grills. Interesting place to visit if you like Dinosaur stuff. Several fossilized footprints in the nearby stream bed. We camped here in a camper.
Very clean RV park. Staff very friendly and helpful. Even though the pool cost $3.00 for our grandson, it was free for us to sit and watch. Lifeguards on duty. We understand the city took this park over, and they have completely remodeled the cabins and have made this park really nice. Bathrooms and showers really clean. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Deferred maintenance everywhere....city took over recently and needs to do lots of updating. My husband said worst bathrooms he has ever been in. We were the only motor home and there were only 2 other trailers ....so only 3 customers in the park. It is now a city park with a huge pool, cabins and RV spaces. We stopped here for over night on to Weatherford tomorrow for FMCA rally. Did not try Wi-Fi, baths, cable or anything else. No library. Would not stay here again. The work campers and receptionists were very nice. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed 3 days at Oakdale last month and had a great time. The restrooms and showers were very clean and staff was very friendly. We visited fossil rim and the state park while we were there so we ran short on time on our last day so we decided to stay a little longer. It was cheaper to pay for the full day instead of paying by the hour. We took our time to pack up and only paid $25.00. It was a quiet stay at the park. Our son had a great time walking around looking for crickets at night. They had a very large pool at the park, but it was closed due to the season. Family friendly park. Great location to town. Will definitely stay there again. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
Love this location across the street from Big Rock Park. You can access the jogging/walking trail from Big Rock Park which goes over the river for a scenic outing. Staff was very friendly. Swimming pool is huge. Evenings were very quiet on the grounds. Grounds were clean. Parking was level with plenty of room for our auto. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a city owned park. They have added several new sites that are not on the map provided on the website. We camped in the new part. The site was very long: 36' coach, pickup truck and still a lot of room. The manager is very accommodating. She told me if I didn't like the site we were in, to just move anywhere we were comfortable. The reason people go to this park is the huge pool. It does cost more: $3 per person for an all day pass. There are pavilions that can be rented and a lot of cabins. This is a very family friendly park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This location still has lots of road and new site construction gong on so there is a lot of mud around. The pool is the main attraction here and there is a charge for using it. We stayed in a grass lot which was OK because it didn't rain. The hookups in the old section are a mess in that they are mostly at the wrong end of the site for a motorhome. We had to pull out and turnaround to get access to the sewer connection. The new sites had great hookups. Overall nice park for families that like huge swimming pools. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is now run by the City of Glen Rose and is in dire need of upgrading. RV sites are grass and dirt and most are not very level. The restrooms/showers were in extreme disrepair and I would not use them. The park was about 1/4 full with mostly permanent residents. Many of the residents were occupying two sites, one for their RV and another for their vehicle. They have a very large swimming pool which I suppose is a big draw in the summer (it was not open yet). I believe this park is too expensive for what they have to offer. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is an older park located near downtown Glen Rose, maybe a bit worn but very comfortable. It has grass covered sites and some sites have big trees for shade. There are some picnic tables. There are some tent sites.There are many cabins for rent. The place has lots of kids. There is a huge pool called the "Oakdale Plunge", which costs extra on weekends ($10 a day), but is free on some weekdays for campers. The park is across the street from the city's "Big Rocks Park", which was strewn with big boulders, along a little river to swim and wade in. It was just a short drive to restaurants and shopping. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is not a resort park but, it was adequate, relatively clean, adequate spacing, fairly level. Kind of a tight squeeze getting into camping area but trees were trimmed adequately to prevent dragging over coach. Choose exact camping spot for yourself and check looks of electrical boxes (some quite good, some marginal). Golf is simply great at 36 hole facility run by the county about 5 minutes from campground. We camped here in a Motorhome.
To be fair, we are newbies to this whole experience, but we found this RV park to be quite adequate. Right across the street is BIG ROCKS, a city owned park which the Paluxy River runs right through. The water is shallow and great for kids. The park is "older", celebrated it's 40th year this year. There is a great pool, 60's style set up. Lots of Bluegrass music can be heard here at different times of the year. They hold different festivals and celebrations throughtout the year. We also enjoyed going to Dinosaur Valley State Park located less than 3 miles from there. Shallow water in most parts of the Paluxy enable visitors to see clearly many dino prints all along the waterway. You should also visit the Creation Evidence Museum located near the park. All in all, we thougth this RV park was a great first experience. Staff was friendly, helpful. They also have cabins available for rent. We camped here Easter
weekend 2003 in a 34' bumper pull Laredo by Keystone. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed there in May of 2001, place had tree limbs hanging down over the roads that almost gave me a heart attack to think they might rupture the rubber roof. The place isn't big rig friendly at all. You go in and pay, then you go and find a spot. Trouble is, if you don't find a spot, and go to turn around, you almost have to exit the park to get back to the camping area. The site we chose, we had to use blocks under our wheels plus the jacks to get our coach close to level, but not level. A pic on their site shows about a 32' RV, but it's about the only place you can get a big coach in. Notice the rising elevation in the background. It's a nightmare site to get level. Grass was almost 10" and unmowed, rock roadways had deep washouts. I wouldn't recommend anyone to stay unless they can go and check it out for themselves to see what I'm talking about. I have also written to Woodalls and let them know about the rating they gave, and I should have been refunded for buying their book, since they promote campgrounds for anyone who wants to be added into their book. We camped here in a camper.
Price reflects C2C membership rate. This campground is very nice. We were greeted by a very friendly woman and escorted to our site. The sites are very level and large; also sites are grass. Big rig friendly. There were trees throughout the campground. Even though we were here during the "off season", there were daily planned activities. There is a restaurant on site, laundry room, game rooms, pool and access directly to the rivers. Great Verizon phone reception. Wi-Fi was not strong. Security gate to get in and out of campground. We will definitely visit again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
My wife and I were asked to spend the weekend at this facility while also evaluating it. We were given a slightly shaded site near the kids room. We were required to attend a "sales presentation" on Saturday morning. Before that, we walked the park and thought it was nice, but needed several areas remodeled due to various reasons (ie., rotten wood on cabins, muddy sites, no paved sites, etc.). We thought the park was a nice "old fashioned" type campground. The restrooms were not clean. In fact, while there I entered the Men's Restroom to discover a handicapped gentleman trying to get in a stall, but could not due to not having the required width. Moving forward, we attended the 10am Sales Presentation. We were given a riding tour of the facility by a nice lady. She was new it seemed. Upon return, she was scolded by her boss for running over by 10 min on the ride. Later, we were told that we would need to write a check for approx. $16k. We did not see nor believe this!! We decided to withdraw and then the "boss" came over and preceded to offer us a fee of $5k for 1 year. We departed after being insulted....never would return to this park. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
What a beautiful park. This park would be an awesome oasis in a beautiful setting “if” not for their required sales pitch. This is a “members only” park; however they do have a number of permanent residents. Sales “pitch” took 3.5 hours; they wanted $13,000 for their 8 parks and Coast to Coast membership. Quoting “free” camping as their benefit, however Coast to Coast does not offer free camping with any of its memberships. We explained from the beginning we were Coast to Coast already and it still took 3.5 hours and they dropped their asking price to $5,520. The sites are fairly level, and spacious. Most of the buildings have been renovated or are in the process of being renovated. This park was originally a YMCA camp in the early 1900’s. Staff was friendly and helpful. As we were there for Halloween “weekend” there were an abundance of activities. Fishing isn’t half bad, although actually getting to the river is “rough”, not handicap accessible by any means. Bathrooms were dirty even though someone signed off saying they had cleaned them. Showers were pleasant, after we cleaned the stall. They do have a swimming pool, although it was locked during our stay. No hot tub. Laundry facilities are in a newer building and well maintained; $1.25 for washer or dryer. Wonderful free Wi-Fi; good clear cell phone service; no cable however good antenna television. We did have an issue with electric; hubby finally had to help resolve a few major problems at the main breaker box. Water pressure was extremely low, and none existent at times. The “old” camp area has beautiful mature trees, some dropping “huge” acorns, others dropping “yummy” pecans. Would recommend this beautiful park, only if you are already a member of Coast to Coast, ROD, or AOR; otherwise avoid this park and their sales pitch. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice RV park. We spent a week here under ROD, so we paid $3/day for 50amp service. No problems with hook-ups, & staff is friendly. Rooftop satellite dish worked fine. Sprint cell phone was in roaming all the time but worked fine. The Sprint hot spot, being in roaming, worked slowly. Good laundry facility with 5 washers & dryers, $1.25 each. Only a couple miles from downtown. Green Pickle has great burgers. Grounds are very well kept with large grass sties, and gravel roads. Nice trail along the rivers & creek. Outdoor pool not yet open. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
BEWARE!!! We were given 2-3 free nights as a promo for Ocean Canyon pitch. It is a big camp in a lovely setting but the showers had no lights and the bathrooms were very basic for a "resort" but the biggest thing is their pitch. Check out "Ocean Canyon Properties" on the internet before you go, they have an F rating from Better Business and there is no "buyers regret" refund in Texas if you change your mind. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We are a member of OC Properties and usually stay here about once a month for the weekend. Nice private park for OC members. Staff is great and will lead you into your spot. Spots can accommodate the largest of rigs (ours is 40' and have no issues getting into a spot). Bath house are adequate. The small town of Glen Rose being close is great. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We visited this resort because of a Camping World invitation to listen to a 90 minute sales pitch, double that unless you sign-up. The sites are level and a few with shade. The Wi-Fi is slow and you have to disable Explorer protection to get it to work. The sewer connections are poorly installed where you have to try and make stuff flow uphill. You can tell people have had problems because of spills. Some sites had power issues and we experienced low voltage. The office staff was friendly as were fellow RV'ers. We would not stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate reflects guest rate. This campground hasn't improved over the past 2 years since our last visit. Our grassy site was roomy and easy to get into however it was full of sticker burrs and was literally underwater after heavy rains over Saturday night. The site turned into a mud pit. The staff is friendly and helpful however the Wi-Fi at no time worked and there absolutely is no cable TV for the RV sites. Kitchen facilities needed a good cleaning as did the restrooms that I saw. The grounds are in a park-like setting and there is a nice walking trail. Excellent place to go unwind from city stresses if you know what you are getting in to. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We camped at Tres Rios as part of their marketing at Camping World where you get 3 days for free if you listen to their 90 minute membership sales pitch. Well the sales pitch ended up being almost 3 hours, the netbook pc that they provide for free is a piece of junk. The park overall is OK, but pretty old, all sites are dirt and while they do have trees, all the shady spots were taken as they don't have very many 50A sites in the shade. My recommendation is that if you don't want to drop about $9K for a lifetime membership, don't waste your time as there are better alternatives in my opinion. And, the gifts they provide for wasting your time are junk. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We camped here several years ago and really enjoyed our stay. Now it is owned by a campground association. The rate is for non-member, one night stay, and they put non-members in sites close to the road and in the open ie: no shade. Thus the poor rating. We were tired and ready to get off the road, so paid the steep price. AC's running drowned out any noise. You can get a 2 night stay for $19.95 if you take their pitch to buy a lifetime membership. Pads are grass, you are escorted to your site and everything was clean and neat. We will not return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We camped under ROD so paid for 50 amp only. It is a membership park and we felt welcomed and 'like family' from start to finish. Everyone was very friendly and the staff even checked after a day or so to see if everything was alright. I gave it a 9 because of the dust on the roads and suggested to them, they might want to use pine oil to keep the dust down (environmentally friendly). It is off the main road so is quiet and we enjoyed walking along the rivers (there are three). We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is nice to visit. They advertise a $19.95 rate for two nights. However, you have to submit yourself to a 90 min. Sales pitch. This is a scam, if you don't sign up for the nearly $9,000 cost the salesman will get very smart with you. Don't fall for the sales pitch. As far as the site. It was level and did not have a fire pit or grill. There are flood lights that are as bright as a Comanche moon. Very distracting. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

This is a nice, well kept park that is very family friendly. Nice grassy sites. Staff was very friendly and helpful. We stayed here using ROD so the rate is for the 50 amp service. We will definitely come back. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here on a monthly rate using 50 amp. Rate was $497/mo and it included unmetered electricity. This is a membership private park. They do have a public area that non members can use; however, reservations can not be made for these—it's first come. The park is clean, well maintained. Very scenic with the rivers running around it. Park staff leaves much to be desired. I would have given this park a higher rating had their staff actually enforced their rules and respected their paying guests. On 10/10/09 the park rented out a building in the park by the public campsites to a party with a very loud DJ. The booming base of the music literally vibrated the camper. Sheriff on hand at the party measured the decibels at 82 but couldn't shut it down unless it was over 85. So management would have to do something, which they didn't. Quiet time for the park is 10pm. They allowed the party and vibrating base to continue until 1 am, expecting their paying RVers to tolerate such a nuisance until that late in the night. Many of our neighbors were equally annoyed. I wouldn't suggest ever paying to become a member of Ocean Canyon Properties when you will be asked to tolerate such special events. And if you are not a member and are thinking of staying nightly, I would avoid the park on Saturday nights when they seem to book parties. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We camped here with our two children ages 4 and 9 over the Easter holiday weekend. All of the staff there were so friendly and helpful! They had a very nice lodge, playground, volley ball nets, horseshoe pits and a lot of extra activities going on that were a lot of fun for family time together. They were so good to the kids! Everything at the campground was very clean! You can tell they have been doing a lot of hard work cleaning this campground up! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

This is our home Park for our Ocean Canyon RV Membership. This is an older park but since being taken over by Ocean Canyon Resorts many improvements are continuing. One note is that this park will be going private. Numerous and spacious spots. Pretty level spots too. Pool was very nice and many activities for children. Cabins looked nice and more are currently being added. Access to the 3 rivers is very close with tubing, canoeing and boat access close as well. Future improvements include having tubing and boat access to the rivers right on site. Staff was friendly and helpful. Location is minutes from Fossil Rim Wildlife Park and Dino Valley State Park. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We have just returned from Tres Rios River Ranch and are quite disappointed. The park is nice enough. Has excellent water access to Squaw Creek, the Paluxy River and the Brazos River. The staff seems friendly and helpful. The sites are somewhat close and quite dusty but this is Texas in the summer so dusty is to be expected. What we did not expect was the haphazard way in which the park is maintained. We arrived on Thursday and stayed through the following Tuesday. The bathrooms were already somewhat unclean on Thursday but quickly became a fetid, stinking mess by Friday and remained that way until they were given a cursory cleaning on Tuesday. Complaints to the management were quickly dispatched to their workers, however the workers were extremely lackadaisical in performing their jobs. When a toilet became clogged and overflowed in the men's room, the worker came out with a plunger and fixed the clog, but left the filthy mess on the floor. No one ever came back to clean it. There was always mud covering the floor, even in the showers themselves. It was impossible to get dressed after a shower and not soil your clothing in the process. Also, although there are over 300 sites at this park, there is only one bathroom. In the women's side there are 3 showers, one of which worked only sporadically during our stay. This should be a great place for families with children. They have a nice pool and lots of room for kids to play (including a fun playground), yet because of the filthy bathroom conditions, I doubt we will return. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.

We are actually staying here while I am writing this review. There are many sites here, though mostly narrow and due to the lack of rain it is very, very dusty. Everything we have outside, like chairs, tables, grills etc. have a fine coat of dust. Staff is helpful and friendly, and wireless internet is helpful to find local attractions and stores. There are a couple of Walmart's with in 15 to 25 miles away. The intown grocery store is well stocked. Get here early, on a Thursday if possible. We came in on Thursday and by Friday evening this place was packed, probably not to capacity because this place has numerous spaces, but by viewing the spaces left, I wouldn't want them. The pool is adequate, lots of river access although I did not see one person canoeing, or swimming in the river, maybe because a lot of the river access I saw had high weeds and lots of eroded banks. Most of the river bank area and river access looks to be accessible by primitive tent campers. Judging by all the fire rings and beer cans on the river's edge that area can get packed as well. We didn't see many tent campers as it is over 100 degrees everyday and very dusty at this time of the year. I know this sounds kind of negative but over all I give this place a 5 out of 10. The sites are somewhat level and mowed, but I prefer a solid pad. Showers are okay, restroom are okay as well, they were clean enough just a little old. There are quite a few cabin rentals, if you can call all of them cabins, some nothing more than an extremely large trailer house with 5 or 6 front doors. Many rigs here are permanent, weeds growing around them, stuff stuck in nooks and crannies around their sites. To sum it up this place is kind of like a summer camp like it used to be in the 1920s, not a resort. It would be a great place for kids to run around and be kids if they took reservations, this place is crammed with cars and tighter than sardines right now, cars everywhere, lots of motorhomes have multiple visitors with multiple cars. So if ya like hot weather, dust and lots of kids running through your space, albeit friendly kids, this is the summer place for you. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
I went here not knowing what to expect. The previous two reviews were conflicting. I
found the second or the positive one to be correct. This is not one of those large resorts with modems, concrete pads, etc., but it is a very good family park and it was easy to find and manuever in. I parked in the open area in the middle but there are still trees in this area. Granted the sites were grass, but it was well maintained and level. The sites have side-by-side, but with so many, no one is that close to each other unless they area travelling in a group and want to be. The tent sites are on the lower levels on the creek and river banks and the cabins are in the back area, so everything is separated. It was a holiday weekend and many people were in the park, but we didn't notice and noise or people running through our campsite. I would definitely go back again and would recommend it to others. They don't take reservations on rv and tent sites, but with so many sites they are never crowded. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a very unique park, and we've stayed here multiple times. It was a summer camp built for kids in the 1920s, and many of the old structures still exist. It has one of the oldest concrete swimming pools in existence. The surroundings are beautiful, Huge trees growing along the river bed make for a wonderful place to take leisurely strolls. We camp with our kids, and the management brings in a variety of activities, like river rafting, horseback riding, etc. The downside to this place are the sites themselves, grassy sites at a lower grade than the gravel driveway is trouble (we were there once during a rainstorm, and a big diesel pusher required a towtruck to get out), and the only 50 amp hookups are around one pole in the middle. The sites are ill defined, and would be very cramped if the place ever filled up, which it never does. Best bet is a back-in spot along the left side as you drive in, under
the trees. We camped here in a Motorhome.

All sites were grass, narrow, short, mostly SIDE-by-SIDE hookups which puts rigs too close to each other, we didn't like any of those features. There are some "cabin type" rental units. Some of the RV sites appeared to have been occupied or stored there for sometime (grass growing up under the rigs, "stuff" stored under the rigs, etc.). Only a very few sites had 50Amp service (our site was 30 Amp). Probably an OK place for river fishing if you don't have a large trailer or large motorhome. New manager (only one when we were there) was often not on property during office hours. Inexperienced teenage staff damaged (tore hole in rear bumper while we were parked in our space) our new motorhome while 'mowing' grass with a large tractor equipped with hydraulic front bucket and bushhogger (of all things!). Rowdy, noisy groups during nights we were there. We had been looking forward to staying there, but we were very dissappointed. This experience taught us to be much more selective when choosing a place. We camped here in a camper.
