Above rate was during rally. WI-FI does not work in most of RV area, does work well in the building. There are 20-some 30 amp water sites, the rest are 50 amp full-hookup. Sites are designed to be double back-to-back when totally full. Inner circle sites are "shared" utilities. Outer circle site utilities have electric on one side shared, and water/sewer on other side shared ...one or the other is on the wrong side!! Otherwise, utilities are good, slabs are nice. All sites are technically back-in over a shallow curb. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We camped here to watch the July 4th fireworks. I know this park very well as we live 10 miles from here and attend the civic center at least once a week. One correction, the park is not owned by the city, the civic center was built by public donations and run by a board of trustees. The cost is the new rate as of this year with no discount. What the others have said is correct. It is well cared for but pretty basic. It has good power, water and sewer but no laundry, toilets/showers or cable. Satellite reception is good because of the lack of trees and the open spaces. WiFi is spotty if not close to the civic center. The pads are concrete and level but they are very close together and I do mean very close. It's not usually much of a problem as the place is usually not very busy unless there is a rally booked in. The grocery store is within easy walking distance, in fact, nothing is too far. The park is well patrolled by the local police and, perhaps because I am a local, I've always felt very safe. It is however a public park and people use it for walking and jogging, exercising their dogs, picnics, taking the kids to the playground, etc. It does close to the public at 10 o'clock although the doors are not locked. Yes, we'd stay here again and probably will within the next few weeks. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice place to stay during the week. Lots of green space to walk and play. There is a playground. Weekends may be busy as this is the convention center rv park. The spaces are very close together and there are no showers/restroom for the park. Internet is available near the civic center. Walking distance to many great restaurants. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
RV park run by the city. Spaces in front of the civic center. Good water and good electricity. Down side is that you have to back over a curb or else pull thru a five acre grassy area to reach the hookups. Handy for events at the Civic Center and the managers are helpful and friendly. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Good park and will stay here again! Friendly staff. Pulling in looked interesting going up a small rise; however, the 6 overnight spots are gravel and level. Nice DVD selection available for check out. The trains roll by but nothing that would wake or bother even a light sleeper. Easy to find. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We enjoyed our stay here. The rate is based on their 3 day special. You get an extra discount for paying cash. The short term guests stay on the road side, don't worry when you see the inclines coming into the park, the sites are level at the top. There is plenty of space to park your toad behind your unit. Wifi was iffy, on and off, but it's there. Very friendly owners, knowledgeable about the area and will recommend great places to eat and visit. Very nice museum in town, on donation only basis with lots of history and exhibits. There are good restaurants with good prices and service. On the down side, this park is right across the street from busy RR tracks. We didn't mind the noise, they don't blow whistles, but they do rumble thru but it.didn't bother us and we'd stay here again when in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Somewhere RV Park should be named next to the busy railroad tracks! The trains shook the ground as they passed by , and that was quite often! The only shade was in the rear of the park , where the locals stayed long term.The managers were friendly and informative , ( about the local area ). When we reported a mess in the one and only restroom , we were informed that most campers would have cleaned it up themselves! We had planned a two week stay in the area but left after two days.The site we were in was not level,close to the 4 lane highway and had no shade.The trains shaking the motorhome was the biggest problem , as the area had several interesting historical sites , we would liked to have stayed longer but could not tolerate the noise and shaking. While the website looked attractive , it is very deceiving . We will not return there. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I would give this park a 10 if it had a swimming pool and paved pull through sites. The Staff, owners, are very amiable and accommodating. There are only a few pull through sites. They are gravel and fairly level. There is a lot to do around the vicinity of this campground, and Canton First Monday is just down the road, and other towns around the area. The campground has a fitness center, and a fenced dog park. We would stay here again if in this area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is located in a perfect spot off Hwy 80 just outside of Mineola. We stayed here for a bit while planning out our next adventure. The dog park is GREAT! They were finishing the fences on all sides while we were here. The restrooms and laundry are clean and they have pull through sites in the front of the park while extended stayers are in the back. The only thing I didn't like about the park was it is all sand. I felt like I was at the beach the whole time and had to wipe down everything in the RV several times a day as well as sweep it out several times a day. Other than that, the people are really nice. The owners do smoke and the office is smoking allowed, so if you are sensitive that might be an issue. We would stay here again, but maybe just for a stop over because of the sand. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Super friendly owners and clean campground. My husband loved the super big shower with the rain shower head. Wi-Fi was very fast. They even sell fresh eggs in the office. There is a fire ring and "conversation area". It is located at the intersection of two highways which we thought might be an issue but we did not hear any highway noise. The problem is the train tracks. Several times during the night a train would come through and each time we could hear it. I swear it was 8 times. (maybe it just seemed that many, but it was an issue). If these owners had a campground in another location it would be a great campground, but in this location, sadly, we will not return. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
You have very few choices in Mineola, and until these folks opened there was no good one! This park is small, there are some (quiet) fulltimers, but it's a great place to pull in for a few nights and enjoy East Texas. The train tracks are fairly close by, but we enjoyed hearing the whistle blow once in a while. If you're a really light sleeper, choose one of the spots farthest off Highway 80. We stayed here for two nights and found the owners to be well informed locals who take pride in their park. Bathrooms are clean and air conditioned. We had no complaints and will return. Oh yes, they also sell fresh eggs from a local farm right in the office! We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is pretty rough yet, but the crucial facilities are available here and the people are really nice and working hard. Laundry room, shower and bathrooms are all in several little buildings, family style. They allow free use of DVD's, VHS tapes, and games as well as book exchange. Although the entrance could be improved, and it had just received torrential rain, it was a great overnight stay for us in an area which is underserved. We camped here in a Motorhome.
