I would recommend this park. It has large sites. The sites are level and are made of crushed asphalt. The grass area is OK. The internet has great signal but is not secure. It is quiet and clean. It is on the ninth hole of a golf course. I would come here again if in the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This campground is located on US59 South, a few miles south of town and on east side of highway. Access road is a narrow crowned dirt road. Interior roads are recycled asphalt which is pretty loose and lumpy. Pads are same material and very soft so you have to use pads or your jacks will sink. All other areas are barren soft sand. There is very little grass and, despite being surrounded by the owner's forested land, no shade at all. I noted that I did not know if this was pet friendly since, although they allow pets, there is nowhere to walk one. The park opened early March 2011 and has a very long way to go before it is a "resort". Basically it is a parking lot with hookups. Water pressure was good. Wi-Fi was good. Owner was on site and very helpful and friendly. This was previously rated as a 10. The rating must have been by a relative. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Easy entry from US 59, well marked. Good interior roads. This is a brand new park opened in April 2011. On-site laundry facility soon to open. Each site has two sewer hookups for big rigs. Owner lives on site and is very helpful with everything. Walking trails in nearby wooded areas. 18-hole golf course within walking distance. This is the best park in this area. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
You have to be traveling South to enter this park. All grass site and when it rains, well, good luck. I sank 8 inches and left ruts about 30 ft trying to get out of site #2. We finally stayed in #E4. This park is more or less an open acreage with some hook-ups. Not very professional at all; campground or manager. A one night shot and that's all it was worth. Would not recommend this park and we will not stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is a great one night stop or more if you are visiting or exploring Nacogdoches. $27.00 is Good Sam pricing. Sites are level and good sized. There seem to be some permanents, but other than some road noise the park is quiet. It is convenient to Highway 59 and easy to enter and exit. We’ve stayed here twice and will stay again if we are in the area. The park is located right next to the State Highway Patrol District Headquarters. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Easy stop right on loop around Nacogdoches, US59. Easy in and out. Restrooms looked nice, but they were locked. I am sure they could be opened if necessary. Coin laundry was neat and clean. Sites are good sized with good hookups. Plenty of grass for dog walking. We will stay again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nothing much has changed since the last review. Certainly nothing for the better. Still no facilities such as bathroom, shower, laundry, etc. Beware: Main entry road has tree branches that will scrap most any Class A RV. Will avoid in the future. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Above rate reflects monthly rate. Sites are marginal. They are plenty long, but barely wide enough to work, and definitely NOT "nice and level" as previously described. Two or three near the front may be level enough, but all the rest are considerably nose-low, providing problems in leveling even a short Class C, much less a long Class A. All sites would work ok for trailers. With a 40' diesel motorhome, we had to pull much further forward than desirable for utility connections and still had to use a LOT of lumber under front jacks and tires to get level, which then required a wood pallet and concrete blocks to make the elevated entry step height workable. The park manager did help by bringing six concrete patio blocks to the site for our use. A small class C, two spaces over from us had around 8" of wood under the front wheels. The free WiFi was weak and was usable perhaps 50% of the time. It was a dusty month for us with lots of blowing dirt almost daily from the livestock auction/Exposition Center dirt drives and parking lots to the south. We will look for other options on our next visit to the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Directions could have been clearer. You have to get off of the highway at the appropriate exit. It is a 4 lane divided highway. Small park with shade trees. I don't think the owners are on site. We had to call them to meet us at the park. This is just a place to park. One washer and dryer, no office, no area information, no receipt. They came by for their payment and left. I think the price was a little steep for no perks at all. We would look for another place. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This RV Park is no longer closed. It is now owner managed and has a new website. It is a lovely park and very clean. We camped here in a Motorhome.
[ 10 / 10 ]
This is a beautiful new park with a very friendly staff. The oak trees throughout the park are really nice. It was really easy to get in and out of the park. The spaces were nice and level. The park is conveniently located off US 59 next to the Nacogdoches Expo Center. There is a great animal hospital next door. Very peaceful and quiet. We stayed a week, and enjoyed our time. We highly recommend this park! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice location off Highway 59. The campground has great potential but is a wreck! Two restrooms: One with a door kicked in. Both rated "D" for DISGUSTING! Office is a mess. Entry road is dirt/mud/potholes. Did not feel comfortable/safe. Would avoid if there was another choice. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Large sites, but not very private. With Good Sam Discount site was $22.50 per night. We had a back-in site on the lake. Entrance is easy to miss especially heading South on 59. You need to look for the red billboard for the Antique Mall an immediate left at that sign. If you are coming north on 59 there is a blue RV camping sign. This was a great location for visiting family in the area, but not where I would choose to camp typically. There appeared to be permanent campers in some areas of the park. The park was very quiet. I would stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We stayed here one night, visiting with family while passing through. Easy excess off 59 but you really have to look for the sign. Clean park but do not think it was worth the $32.00 a night. They put us in a pull through, stating we were too big for a backin. We did get wakened by the dump trucks in the morning, coming and going, hauling through the park. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park is good for a overnight stay. We stayed on the lake, with our RV facing the the lake. The park is clean. It has some long terms campers. Our rate was a Good Sam discount price. Would stay there again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here one night on our way to New Caney, TX in our travel trailer. Campground was hard to find because it was a busy road and the sign was a small wood hand painted sign that only said RV and an arrow. The campground was down a narrow long lane and not visible from the road. The manager in the office was nice enough and gave us a Good Sam discount even though they are not a Good Sam campground - so we paid $32 after discount. There appeared to be some permanent campers in one section behind the office. We parked with one other camper in pull-through section that had 4 or 5 spaces. There were 4 or 5 campers in the back-in section on the side of the lake. The down side of this campground was a large empty run down building between the campsites and the office. The 'lake' was just there, nothing pretty about it. The showers were totally uncleaned and unkept; they were totally filthy. There was a lot of garbage inside and outside. They were single person men/women bathroom/shower. They looked so bad I wouldn't even go in, my husband stepped in and checked them out. Everything about this place looked run down and in need of repair. There was a porch light fixture on our power pole, but it wasn't working. We would not stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The sign leading you to the park is obscured by trees and buildings. The road in, is very narrow with trees in the way. Although they did have cable TV you had to have a cable box to view it. The area around the pond was very littered with trash. We will not stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
As several have stated, bad signage on hwy. and bad interior roads. We pulled into a site and the power would not come on. The man in the office was not real helpful but said he would call an electrician. We moved to a different site. On the other hand, had a beautiful view of the full moon over the lake. Could be a very nice park with some maintenance and updates. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Poor signage from the main road Hwy 59. Bad interior roads, no gravel or pavement, dust storm conditions. The speed limit is not enforced so the dust problem is even worse. Any shade sites are occupied by permanent worker-campers. But this is just another pitiful example of all the RV parks near Nacogdoches. You're better off boondocking in Wal-Mart's parking lot! At least there's no dust there. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
As previously stated, very poor signage for the entrance. The sign is actually falling down. This park has no amenities other than the lake, so I don't know how they call it a resort. Very dusty, with great views of power lines. The woman in the office could not find my reservation and was not very friendly. I would not stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Entrance not well marked, road in was full of potholes. Cable TV was not good, overall campground was not clean or well maintained. It did have a nice view of the lake in the pull through which we paid extra for as we were there overnight and did not want to unhook our car. It was very dusty and the dumpster was off in the woods, so we brought our trash home. Would not stop there again for that price and few amenities. We camped here in a Motorhome.
As others have said, this place is hard to find (just an "RV" sign on the road--nothing with the campground name), and the roads are in poor shape. Some traffic noise. Wi-Fi too weak to use. The laundry facilities were not even hooked up. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We were underwhelmed at the appearance of this campground. It has a very hard entrance to find and all the gravel, including the road in, leaves a lot to be desired. We set up, tried the wi-fi on two different computers and got nowhere. Then we had an emergency and had to leave. The owner was most gracious in returning our money. That's not the norm and we appreciate his effort. For that reason alone, I'd give this place another shot. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is an OK park. We have stayed here several times moving children in and out of Stephen F Austin University. The sites are all gravel with no shade. This time the water pressure in the park was miserable; only 25psi. I was disappointed given the new rates. Restrooms are clean enough for a guy camping, but I'm sure my wife would have a different opinion. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Quiet but not a resort. Lake is nice but internet wifi is weak and would not work in my coach. Lake is nice, but I would call this an over nighter. Did not use rest rooms or showers. We camped here in a Motorhome.
You can not beat having such a view when you are backed up next to the "lake". We stayed here for 2 months or so and we would stay again but it is not because of the owner. He was lucky enough to buy a gem but he is the farthest thing from "customer oriented" people person. He was unfriendly and rude. However, the park is worth the stay. The websites portrays it as a "tropical resort" and that is unrealistic. A couple random palm trees do not make it tropical. It is a mostly peaceful country park (yes there are deer, fish, and golfing near by and the faint smell of chicken houses) and the Best option in Nacogdoches. Will stay again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
As I understand it, this park has just changed ownership and new owners are getting accustomed to managing the park. Site was level and spacious, but no shade (although we were told that before we arrived). The Wi-Fi was intermittent and the staff had no knowledge of Wi-Fi. Restroom, shower were dirty. No grills, fire rings or picnic tables. Road entering the park, full of potholes. 15 acre lake was pleasant. Lots of turtles, some geese and fish seen. The electric power was low - 108-110 volts most of the time. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Road into and thru park is full of potholes and washouts. Park had no power for 14 hours while we were there. Operators suggested we run on generator till they got it fixed. Finally left when it was becoming apparent they were not going to get the power fixed. WIFI very spotty - works next to office but nowhere else. We wouldn't stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Owners were very friendly. She came out in the rain to assist us with getting into the site. The sites were level, and even though it was raining, they drained quickly. The WiFi worked well, and we were quite a distance from the office. We caught fish in the catch and release lake. My 10 year old caught a couple of nice catfish. This is a nice park for overnight, or even for an extended stay. Picnic tables, or a little better pavement would have been nice. However we would definitely stay here again. Very peaceful. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Our overnight stay here was very nice. We will come back here. Owner was nice enough to cut limbs off tree so that we could get our slide out. Even offered some of her pizza for our dinner! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This campground had easy access to the highway. The manager was extremely helpful in offering a power tool to fix a broken bicycle rack on our camper. A large storm was expected, and she offered her office as a place of shelter during the night if we desired to go there. We didn't use the restroom/shower facilities, but saw that they were clean and seemed new. The laundry facilities were very clean and seemed new. The only disappointment that we had was that although they participate in a discount camping program that we have membership in, they did not honor that discount during the month we were there. A clearly posted sign and their web site stated such, so we knew that before we agreed to stay. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a new park located on Hwy 59N. New sites are being constructed. At present, no showers or restrooms but are in the planning stage. Sites are large with plenty of room for all slide outs. The owners live on-site and are very friendly and helpful. They will help you set-up if needed. There is a 15 acre lake for fishing but don't recommend getting in the water--lots of snakes. When completed, this will be a good park for overnight or extended stays. SFA University is just up 59N. We would return when in the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a small park with 12 gravel sites, dirt roads and shaded areas. The park is located right off highway 59 just north of Nacogdoches. The owners are on site daily and very accessible via telephone if needed. They added a laundry room with a washer and dryer and will be putting in a shower facility soon. This is a very quiet park with a mix of college students and working people. Grounds were clean and well maintained although the rain makes the sites a little muddy, but it's no worse than any other park with gravel sites. Sites are mostly level with ample room to park and pull in/out of drive through sites. Wi-Fi was strong and reliable. My site was well lit at night and I felt very safe taking the dogs out after dark. Neighbors were very friendly (my hose split while I was there and my neighbor turned my water off so I wouldn't have a flood and taped a note to my door offering a spare hose if I needed it). I would stay here again without question. We camped here in a Motorhome.
