We stayed here for 12 days in a 43 foot motorhome. Our first site was down near the club house. I did not like it at all, first off our satellite dish was hitting a tree, second there was a slight gradient when we stepped out of our RV and after a good rain, it turned to mud, Our RV was a mess after two days, Also the sites are very close, too close for my own comfort. I asked to be moved to the top of the hill and we did - or us it was like a whole new camp ground, more space, quite from the road, lots of sun, open sky for our dish. I was very satisfied with our new site B7. And for this reason we stayed for an additional 5 days. The campground is very well kept, very clean. The rest rooms, club house and laundry rooms are excellent. The fitness room, although better than most campgrounds because most have none, could be larger and have more and better equipment. The manager whom I have forgotten his name was also very friendly and helpful, always cheer full as was the men working around the grounds. The ladies in the office - not quite so much. They may need a little hospitality training. For such a nice campground in a metropolitan area, I was surprised they did not have a security gate, although it was not needed. I walked and jogged a lot and there is the Jefferson County trails not far from the campground. Also, the new train is a short walk or drive from here, 2 bucks gets you into Denver with free parking. THIS CAMPGROUND WILL NOT ACCEPT MAIL OR PACKAGES on behalf of its guest under any circumstance, hard and firm, not exceptions. They charge you $15 to wash your RV, just a bit high, but I was happy to be able to to it at all, lots of campgrounds will not let you at all. I would rather be able to pay and do it than not.
This park is brand new. It has beautiful large sites with concrete slabs large enough for both the RV and Patio. (We are 43 feet.) It comes with charcoal grills and a fire ring and picnic table all roads are paved. the owners have put a ton of money into the park and it shows. It has a beautiful kidney shaped pool, small exercise room, very clean tiled bath rooms and showers, laundry room, boat rentals and a friendly staff. The only reason I did not give it a 10 is that the park being so new does not have the matured trees and landscaping other parks have that have earned a 10. In a few years time the park will get a 10 but for now the landscape needs to mature. It is close to Hot Springs and has plenty of golf courses near by.
First let me say that we paid $234 for a week. We had a front row site on the river. The sites are very large and level. We have a 43 foot motorhome I would suggest to park towards the back of the concrete pad allowing yourself to have a very nice and large concrete Patio in the front of your RV. The people are very friendly. I had a flat on our tow vehicle and the maintenance staff fixed it for me with a plug. I did tip him well although it was not even expected I am sure. I have and will stay here again. There is not much to do here for the kids. It is very convenient to Memphis, but yet it is out of the city.
For the money $18 per night you cannot get a better deal. No pool, hot tub, Internet or other amenities, that is why I did not give it a 10 On top of that people are friendly, Sue in the office made a reservation for us over the telephone $3 additional charge., We arrived on a weekend and office were closed, camp ground host meets us and assigned us a site, very helpful and friendly did not get his name. CG is right on the river, it is quite and nice, full 50 amp services up to date utility's WS&E. The sites are very large or I should say some of them are. We are in a 43 foot motor home and we are located in the "open section" Approximately 10 sites or so very large sites, large enough for the largest of Motor homes, open as in no trees and level , 40 feet between sites paved roads and sites and patio with table is on concrete. Many of the sites are in a treed area, I am not sure if 43 foot RV could fit on them, surly not on all of them perhaps some, be sure to inquire.
Many people would give this park less than a 7 however, I was very happy here. We have a 43 foot motor home and granted the sites on the hill top were too small for our rig, I would not have been happy there at all. In fact we were, then we asked to move to a site on the bottom of the hill. I am so glad it was open. Site number 1 was large, flat, on the end, and shaded, but we got our satellite to work. Site 1 faced the sewer dump station, but that got very little use and was not a problem in any way. I think sites 2, 3 and 4 would have been ok also. It did only have 30 amps and it was real hot out (93 degrees), so we had to rotate our AC's and used the diesel hot water instead of electric, but we were close to a large pool in which I loved. It is located just outside of the Shenandoah Park which is real nice, since that is what we were here for. The people are friendly. We signed in for 2 nights but wound up staying 4 nights. The park was a KOA, it is becoming a little run down, but for me it was just fine: due to our site and the pool.
This park is a real nice park, clean and neat, it was built in 1995. The front sites have concrete pads, however for our 43 foot RV they are too small in width. Our RV fit perfectly on it, but very little space was left for our own enjoyment on it. The doors on the RV could not be opened without moving the picnic table off the pad to the front of the RV onto the stone driveway, my preference would be to have the RV site on crushed stone and have a nice concrete patio to enjoy. the concrete sites would be nice for a trailer, without slides and doors on the right side. Perhaps the park was build before the age of large RV's. The park has a security gate, not sure why it is necessary because the area seems safe and secure. The park is close to the Smokey mountain entrance and Cades cove. It has a laundry and a small store. Its a quiet park with not to many kids, perhaps due to it not having a pool. I would not be paying any extra for a river site. They are across the road from the river and you can hardly even see it through the trees. Plus they are located on the main road leading out of the park, so they must get a fair amount of road dust. This park is rated 5 star, but due to no pool or hot tub, no fire pits: I would only give it a 4 star. It was very hot when we stayed.
When we arrived we were pleasantly greeted, after check in we were escorted to our site by a young man. The site was plenty large for our 43 foot RV and our car. All of the front sites are brand new, power and water is all up to date, easy in and easy out. There is a small strip of green grass well maintained between sites. The salt water pool was a real treat for myself: open 10 to 8. In addition, they have a very small building, in it includes a treadmill and bike and a like step machine. In addition, they have a tanning bed for an additional 3 dollars. We stayed here for 3 nights. We visited the space museum in Huntsville about 40 minutes away, and the store of re claimed airline baggage ( over rated). The only drawback to this camp ground is it is close to route 72 and you get the traffic noise. But for traveling through and taking a break for a few days at a very fair price, it is perfect!! It is an easy 4 star park and in my opinion better than some 5 star rated parks we have stayed at.
This is a great campground, for us any way. We had an end site with tons of room. Some, I did notice were back-to-back sites with doors facing doors. I can see how they would be tight. They also had very, very private sites with fences, tables and "PRIVATE hot tubs." Had I known about these sites, for sure I would have reserved one for us. We were 4 adults in a 43 foot RV, not real sure about the rate. The owners from Scotland are very nice and very involved. The hot tub and pools are very nice. Lots to do here with kids. This is a park worth staying at. Be sure to have good directions as there are no typical KOA signs from the town center, due to town ordinances.
This is a real nice park, only about 8 years old. The owner and his wife are very pleasant people who have a lot of pride in their park. They build it and they are proud of it and so they should be. It's level, easy to get around, has tons of tall pine trees, all paved and extremely long sites as in perhaps 80 to 100 feet. You cannot get satellite here, but this man has installed DirecTV dishes all around the park and will loan you the cables to connect up to them. He will rent you a DirecTV box if you want. He is most helpful. He also allowed us to wash our RV which I appreciated much. I would recommend this park to everybody. It is very suitable to large motorhomes. It is quiet and priced fairly.
I cannot recommend this campground. We were in a 43 foot RV, the site we had barely fit our RV and did not fit our car. It was tight and expensive with poor 30 amps power. At times only 103 volts, had to run our generator to use the microwave. The worst part for me was the road noise, as much to my surprise our site was only 50 feet from route 101, separated by a set of bushes. Had road noise from 6 am to 11 pm. The park was nearly full except for approximately 10 premium sites which were all 50 amp back ins, not too much further from the road, but level and open for satellite TV. I did go to the office and complained about the noise. I asked to be moved to a more level site and one further from the road. All but one of those premium sites were empty. The nice girl said all sites were full except for those premium sites (which were hard packed stone, back ins and had a cement patios). She said they were a few bucks more, so I asked how much more. Ready for this? She looks at her paper and says to me with a straight face: "$87 dollars per night." I refused the site, what a total rip off this is. That explains why those "premium" sites were all empty except for an occasional overnighter, who would be gone the next day! The park did have a hot tub. I love hot tubs but this one is not to appealing, stuck behind a building, enclosed by a chain link fence. This park is close to the Olympic Park and that is the only thing it has going for it in my opinion. If you do not mind the noise, do not want satellite and can deal with 30 amps, there are some nice sites. But at 50 bucks, it's still way overpriced.
This park is hidden gem: at 25 bucks a night it's a steal. The roads and sites are paved, If you are in a large RV ask for sites G, H, or I. They are all paved, back in sites but much wider than most. The older section is very nice but built for smaller campers w/o slides, so they can be tight. Most sites will get satellite TV but not all of them. All sites are paved and the lawns are very well kept. It's right on the river and a very short drive to Chief Joseph Dam and only 38 miles to the Coolie Dam. This place is also a fisherman's paradise. It's part of a municipal park but closed to the public at night time. It's quiet and the hosts are very nice. I would suggest calling for reservations to be sure they have room.
I wanted to write about this campground because it has many bad reviews, mostly about farm odors due to it being in the country side. We stayed in a 43 foot RV, we asked for an end site due to them being larger and having a swing, and at the time there was four adults. The park is very well kept, we did not have any odors, the "end" sites are about 6 dollars more and only have 30 amps, we did not need AC so that was fine. The employees were very good to us, allowing us to remain in the HOT TUB a little after hours, the park is clean and quiet. It's expensive at $70 a night but all KOA's are expensive.
This is a nice clean and quiet park, sites are 55 feet long and are all cement. The roads are all paved, grass is well kept. The pool is not heated, we did not use them as they are a fair distance from our coach and it is cool outside. There is a camp store here and plenty of shopping nearby, we stayed two nights and would stay here again if "Traveling through." I would not want to spend my vacation here only because there is not much room outdoors. The very small space you do have, is very well kept with lawn. We have a 43 foot motorhome. Our car has to be parked along side of the RV, which makes it very, very close as the sites are very small, we had to remove picnic table in order to make room for the car. We have to open and close the heavy RV door each time we go out to the car, not enough room to get by when it was open. The park seems to be filled with long term workers and people or workers living in very large trailers. (I guess provided by the park.) There are no beat up trailers, and the place is neat. People do not have the trailer trash junk all around like some older parks do. These folks seem to be long term campers here for work with homes else where. They have been polite and quiet to us, no complaints.
The park is nice and clean, we are here in a 43 foot motorhome, they have and we have about 1 of six sites large enough for us, they are back in level sites with tall shrubs on both side, it is very nice and private, the price is expensive at $70 per night, but again you get what you pay for and here it is all about location,location,location we are walking distance to the dunes and a short drive over to Pebble Beach, my only real complaint is the noise, we are backed right up to a busy highway RT 1 , it is so loud I need ear plugs to sleep, the traffic starts to really roll at about 5:30 to 6 am and continues to midnight, days are not all that bad because we are up but the nights are a little hard, again its about location. There is no pool or hot tub as advertised they charge $8 for a very small bundle of wood, so bring your own if you can.
This park was less expensive than others in the area, the old saying applies, " you get what you pay for" The park is old and run down, there are tress but they are over grown and will rub the sides of the RV on some sites, some people live there and have tons of junk in and under there trailers, some trailers are old and beat up, it is not very appealing, the pool is not heated so it is closed most of the time or is un-usable. The thing that bugged us the most is that at 5:30 am some guy gets up to go to work (lots of workers here) ( I I am guessing a worker or some really bad camper) goes outside and starts his diesel truck and runs it for 20 minuets I guess to warm it up, heaven forbid that it was was 55 degrees outside and he might freeze to death, if that is not bad enough at least 6 times he or she went out and opened and slammed the vehicle doors, and I mean slammed them, zero regard for other campers.
This park is real 5 star, and it is a 5 star plus park. It has paved roads with hard packed stone sites and beautiful landscaping, heated pool, hot tub and large and very clean men, lady's rooms, laundry's and an exercise room, laundry and exercise rooms have flat screen TV's. This campground also has a full bar and a restaurant. The food here is excellent, so good in fact the locals come here to eat and have happy hour, the owner and his wife are very friendly people and who have much pride in their park. And it shows every where. If you are traveling through Bakersfield and want to drop anchor for a few days or a week, this is a great place to stay, I myself stayed for 10 days and loved it.
Perfect for large Motor Homes and other self contained units. There are no bath rooms or amenities other than Ice and wood. Its right on the ocean (a very short walk) and the river. The scenery is beautiful. The sites are very large, and can accommodate the largest of Motor Homes. The constant breeze from the ocean keeps things cool. My only complaint is that they charge 15 bucks per person ! 30 bucks a couple For a visit, even if that couple is just there for dinner. Seems a little excessive to me, especially for a state park. O Ya if you want a site, July, Aug and 1/2 of Sept, you need to make reservations 11 months to the minute in advance. The overflow, no utilities, is the pits!! less than 20 feet apart, gen sets running all the time, people do not use gen stacks. Field is a swamp when it rains.
