Not real happy with this one. The bathroom and shower were both badly in need of cleaning. Also, there are two separate camping areas - an old and a new. We were assigned a site in the old section, and it was tight, the roads were crumbling, the pull through sites were only about 35' long, and some had hookups on the left, while others had hookups on the right. We drove through the new section, and it was considerably nicer with larger sites, longer pull through sites, and well maintained roads. If you choose to stay here, try to get a site in the newer camping area.
I give very few 10's, but this one deserves it. I had to look hard to find anything that could have been improved upon, but I guess it would be the WiFi, which was marginal. We were able to connect about one out of every four times we tried, and even then we frequently lost the signal. Other than that, this is an excellent park to stay at. You call the operator, and they immediately send a shuttle to take you to the casino, pool, or wherever. The only shortcoming at all was that it was located in Marksville, which is not exactly a pleasant city to visit. Other than that, well worth the visit. They also give Passport America and Good Sam discounts, plus they run specials. We paid $5.95 for the first three nights, and $22 for the weekend nights. You just can't beat that.
I was a little disappointed in this park. We had a lake front site, and across the lake is a huge power plant that made a constant loud noise. Added to that were the trains delivering coal that were constantly blowing their whistles all times of the day and night. This would have been a more pleasant experience if we had camped in a site that was actually out of sight (and sound) of the lake. That said, the park was nice enough, clean, and the lady who checked us in couldn't have been more pleasant.
Very nice campground, but not big-rig friendly. We saw one guy with a 40' 5th wheel try six times to get to his site before mastering it. Lots of hills, curves, and tight spaces, but if you can get in, it's worth it. Part of an old road used by Davy Crockett, James Bowie, Stephen F. Austin, Sam Houston, and others, can still be seen in the park. Spotless restrooms and showers.
We haven't been here for many years, and were apparently remembering it differently than it actually is. The sites were VERY small, tight, poor roads, with people running all over everyone else's site. In any event, this campground is more suited to tents, popups, and other small campers, and to younger folks with kids. If you're looking for fun with the kids, this would probably be the place for you, but if you're looking for peace and quiet, it isn't.
We stayed here in area B, which is the only one with pull through sites. The sites were very hard to maneuver through, and often you didn't know if you were on a campsite, or still on the roadway. The sites themselves were very hilly, and it was almost impossible to level the rig. Water and electric hook-ups are a long way away, and we needed both an extension cord and a second water hose to make it work. The restrooms and bath house need to be torn down and replaced.
This is a nice park, but I had two problems with it which resulted in my low rating. First, I tried calling, repeatedly, for two days, just to make sure that they would have an open site. No one ever answered the phone, but instead they gave you a voice mail box in which to leave a message, stating that they would return the call. They never returned any of my calls. We finally decided to get off I-75 and actually drive to the park, hoping that they had a site available. They did, and in fact, there were only two other RV's there, so I don't know how they could have been too busy to answer the phone, or to return phone calls. Second, most parks restrict the camping areas to campers, and tell day users to keep out and utilize the day use areas only. Not here. Although there were only a total of three RV's sites in use, including mine, the camping area was packed with people using the sites for picnics, playing ball, using the playground, and driving around and around while blasting their stereos. In fact, two sites that I was interested in were being used by picnickers, so I had to pass them by. All in all, the park is nice, but is in need of new management to make it a bit more camper friendly.
This is a nice park for a stopover, but contrary to its website, it does not have cable TV. It looks like it used to, but no longer. Also, the Wi-Fi only works if you are very near the office. Finally, and I found this to be very unusual, there was a charge to use the shower. I've paid a quarter at a few municipal parks, but this park charges $2.00 per person, which I found to be excessive. That adds an additional $4.00 per couple, per day, just to shower. Other than that, it was neat, clean, and the lady in the office was very accommodating.
Nice campground, great campground manager. He bends over backwards to accommodate you. Only problem is there are no washrooms or showers available. They're expanding, so maybe in the future. Price shown is the PA price.
This is a very unusual RV park, right at the north entrance to Big Bend National Park. It's part of an old working ranch, and has a lot of history to it. It is not fancy, but the people who own it, and those who come back year after year, make it worth a stay. The only downside is that the restrooms and showers need some upgrading. They have a store with a few grocery items, and gasoline, but you had better plan on bringing everything else you may need with you because the closest town is Marathon, which is 45 miles north, and the closest grocery store is Alpine, which is 75 miles northwest. WiFi can be obtained near the store, but it's doubtful that you will get any cell signal. This place is a real diamond in the rough, but it's fun and very interesting, and we will definitely go back.
This is a regular stop for us enroute south for the winter and back again. The owner couldn't be nicer, and makes sure that everything is spotless. The cable TV, WiFi, power, water, and sewer, are all handy and in good repair. The restrooms and showers are individual private rooms, and are spotless, as is the laundry, and there is an electronic keypad to gain entry to them. It's easy to get to from the expressway.
Nice campground, but regardless of what others have said, there is no cable TV. WiFi is okay, and water and power pedestal is good. Make sure you have a water pressure regulator with you as they require that you use one for pressure surges. Restrooms and showers are clean, but small, and in need of some modernization. Some highway noise, but certainly nothing to fret about. All in all, a nice RV park to stay at, with friendly owners.
There are two separate campgrounds: beach side and bay side. The beach side has showers, but the bay side does not, at least at this time. They are still recovering from the hurricane. The individual sites are beautiful, regardless of the particular campground you choose.
Very clean, well maintained park. Wireless is excellent. No cable TV, but several stations available via air from Grand Rapids. Situated on a small "lake" that they stock with trout, bass and other fish. No fishing license required. Only shortcoming is that it lies between an expressway (US 131) and a county road, so there is some road noise if that bothers you. Easy on and off the Interstate. We would stay here again.
Possibly the best maintained park we ever stayed in. Every tree and shrub is trimmed, and they pick up every scrap of paper they see on the ground as they go about their business there. They were having problems with the cable TV, but were working on it. Restrooms and showers are spotless. Three small ponds for fishing, with one having a sandy beach. Relatively close to both I-80 and I-94. They don't allow alcohol in the park, but they never asked if we had any, so if you want a beer, you'll have to be discreet. This one is a real gem.
RV park is okay for an overnight stay, but that is about all. Only ONE shower/toilet stall combination for each gender, so if someone was taking a shower, you could not access it to use the bathroom. And these were not very clean or well maintained. Also, there are UNEXPECTED speed bumps on the road going into the park, and if you are doing anything over about 3 mph, they might actually cause damage to your rig or toad. We probably wouldn't stay here again.
Very nice park for an overnight stop. Manager was extremely helpful and pleasant to deal with. It is a little difficult to access due to a new median put in by the highway department, but that is supposed to be corrected this spring. In the meantime, make sure you ask the manager where to turn to get onto the street it is located on. We will definitely stay here again.
Nice campground, especially if staying several days or more. For an overnight stop, where you plan on using their showers and restrooms, these were barely adequate in the winter. They are NOT heated, and only have curtains instead of doors, so it's like showering outside. Very nice lady who manages it, and she is a wealth of information regarding nearby activities and restaurants.
We used this park as an overnight stay, and found it more than adequate. The cable TV and Wi-Fi were excellent, they even provided the cable for the TV hookup. The price was only $20 for the night, so it appears they dropped the price due to other posts. Just a note: they only have two pull-through sites, but the owner is VERY accommodating, so I'm sure she would try to fit you in someplace. We will definitely stay here again.
A nice campground with large sites, clean facilities, located a few miles from both I-80 and I-55. They don't have sewer hookups, possibly to limit stays (this is a casino campground), but they do have a dump station. The dump, however, is the worst design I've seen. The sewer hose has to drop down to ground level, then back up and over a cement trough wall. Then down through a steel grate into a pipe at the bottom of the trough. Then, the trough has to be rinsed out with a faucet nearby (you need to provide the hose), but the pipe is about 1/4 inch above the bottom of the trough, so it never completely rinses, if you get my drift! Finally, water collects around the outside of the trough, so you have to walk through it to get at your valves. This whole set-up could use some re-thinking. Other than this, however, it was a nice short-term stopover. They have a shuttle you can call to take you to the casino.
We stayed overnight both south and northbound for the winter season. Very nice park with huge pull through cement sites, good WiFi, and the most modern and cleanest rest rooms and showers I've ever seen. It is about 5 or 6 miles south of Memphis, so it's a good spot to stay when visiting there, and reasonably close even if traveling east or west.
We stayed here because Two Rivers RV Park, where we usually stay, was full. These sites were extremely tight and close, there was mud everywhere, no cable TV available, and they were at least $20 more than any of the other nearby RV parks. I guess that explains why we were able to get a spot there when the others were filled. On the plus side, they have a very nice dog walk/dog play area, and a nice playground if you bring kids. We would not stay here again though.
This is a brand new RV park, and we came for three days but stayed five. Their pool is complete, but they are still working on WiFi and cable TV. Beautiful view of Mount Scott and the lake, and lots to see and do in the area. The park is very well kept and maintained, and the people running it couldn't be more helpful or accommodating. We will definitely stay again.
I usually try to avoid KOA's, but this one was in a good spot for me to overnight on the way home. It is a gem! By far, the nicest KOA I have ever stayed at, and one of the nicest RV parks overall. The WiFi worked great and the park was spotless, The sites were long, wide and spacious, and the owners were as pleasant as anyone I've ever dealt with. They are so committed to detail that they even have imitation rocks (plastic) over the sewer connections "so the customer doesn't have to look at them". They open on March 1st for the returning snowbirds, so I'll be seeing them yearly from now on.
This park is beautifully landscaped, but that is about all the positives I could find for it. My main complaint is that they don't honor their price commitments. When I got there, they wanted almost $200 more than they quoted me for the month (yes, I had it in writing, but they still wouldn't honor their written price). The woman told me I was free to go elsewhere, and I would have, but this was our first trip to Texas and we didn't know how hard it would be to find another RV park on such short notice. The sites were so close that I actually had to step over the neighbors sewer connection when exiting my rig. In addition, overhanging tree limbs caused a problem trying to just get to the site. One neighbor told me he ripped his rubber roof trying to get in, and they had to cut a tree branch off to accommodate another. The Wi-Fi was so poor that I had to go elsewhere to check e-mail (and you pay $40 per month extra for it, even though I was quoted $30). I would not consider staying here again.
Absolutely beautiful campground in a beautiful setting very near the Okefenokee Swamp. Several sites are right on the lake, and all of them are clean and well maintained. This is one of the nicest campgrounds we have found, and planned on staying two days, but extended by an additional week, and would have stayed longer if we could.
Very nice resort, directly across the road from a beautiful public beach on the Gulf. We were going to use it for a night stopover, but extended by several more days. We definitely will stay here again in the future.
This is more of a seasonal resort, with many park models. Managers and residents are very friendly. It also has about 20 or 30 short term RV sites available. Very clean and well maintained. The pool is particularly unique as it is a natural spring with a cement patio built around the perimiter. There is a nature trail along the river to a small lake with a wood deck one can relax on. Cable TV and cable internet service are available by contacting the local cable company. We spent the winter here at a much reduced monthly rate of $495, and will stay here again in the future.
Just used this as an overnight stop. Park is older and has very few amenities. Store was closed, wireless internet available, but didn't work very well unless you were next to the laundry room. We would stay here again, but only for short stays.
Nice and clean. Friendly owners, escort to site, free coffee and popcorn at office. Wireless internet available, but sometimes didn't work very well. We wish we could have stayed longer and will definitely stay here again.
Beautiful campground, divided into an East (162 sites) and West (292 sites) segment. Lots to do including boating, fishing, swimming, etc. , in clear, spring fed lake. Lots of state forest land around for hiking, wildlife viewing. Make reservations early (over phone or on website at michigan. gov/dnr), as campground is very popular in the summer. There is also a North Higgins Lake campground on the opposite side of the lake, which I am not as familiar with, but is also nice.
The campground is split into two sections: North Campground and South Campground. The North is much larger, 194 sites, with a camp store, playground, beach access (right on Lake Huron), with smaller sites and dirt pads. Very much of a family campground with lots of tents, pop-ups, and children. A lot of activity here. The South campground is more of an RV resort with asphalt pads, wide grassy sites, lots of shade trees, and very quiet. The South Campground seems to attract more of the larger RV's, and is more popular with people seeking peace and quiet. You can't see Lake Huron from the South Campground, but you are close enough to hear the waves breaking on the beach. We've stayed here many times and it's an absolutely beautiful park. On-line or phone reservations accepted. Fills up fast on the holiday weekends.
Just north of Thomasville, GA. Mainly long term, seasonal sites, but some overnight sites. Clean and well maintained. Surrounding area not particularly scenic or picturesque, and little to do in the way of activities. Good value for the price.
Just east of I-75. Very clean, neat, well maintained RV park, with large sites. Expensive, but great for the REALLY big rigs. Little or no shade, but nicely landscaped with small palms. Escort to site.
Located on Big Cypress Seminole Indian Reservation, 20 miles north of I-75 from Exit 49, in the Everglades. Very clean, well kept, large sites, and very peaceful. Close to air boat rides and "swamp buggy tours". No sign out front, so call for directions.
