Where to begin. I have camped here for three months. What was once thought to be a good place has turned out to be the opposite. There is a self proclaimed park ranger who is a sneaky as a crook. We were told of a washing facility that was supposedly able to use was broke. Come to find out it was a lie they are using it for their benefit and telling us differently. There are showers here that nobody can use or access. The owner upped the monthly rent 100 buck and charges 13 percent tax. The electric has went out on use three separate occasion and could not get anyone to see about it. First time I tracked it to the pole on the property and fixed it myself. Second time the same issue. Third time the self proclaimed park ranger accused another tenant of blowing the fuses hooking up a dryer I never seen moved. There are two gentlemen who think they have control over everything here. The staff is rude and the owner ghoul or whomever you spell his name is an asshole when approach with any complaint or need. There is no lighting in the slip at night for the boat launch. Every wed there is a bass tournament and people everywhere encroaching on you parking. I have seen the yardman twice. he has no regard for personal property. Another instance my neighbor got his power unplugged in the middle of the night with a lock on his box with no warning. I take he was out of town working which the power stayed on but when he didn't pay his lot rent immediately upon his return. I witnessed this personally. They locked him out which was less than one day upon return. I moved his camper two day later because he had to return to work. It destroyed his refrigerator and the smell I can't get rid of it. All in all I would stay clear of Parkside Marina Resort. I believe the electrical has messed something up with my camper. I have made friends with 4 people staying here and their complaints are as valid as mine. We camped at Parkside Marina Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Parkside is located approximately 1 mile from the entrance to Sam Houston Jones State park. They advertise restroom facilities, I guess you could call it an outhouse that has not been cleaned in months. They do not have sewer hookups, but some the the RV's here were just emptying there tanks on the ground, or in the river!!! Also the employees are very rude and some are very DRUNK. The electrical hookups for the RV's work some of the time! I would not recommend anyone staying at this place. It is definitely not a family atmosphere! I recommend either Jean Laffite RV park or Sam Houston Jones State Park. We camped at Parkside Marina Resort in a Travel Trailer.
