Very pleasant park in a fairly quiet location away from major highways but in the middle of the city. We were there on a Saturday night, however, and we heard lots of sirens during the night. There are a lot of large trees that provide shade to most of the sites and there are a lot of grassy common areas. Sites are long and plenty wide. Office and recreation room are very neat and tidy and check-in person was very friendly. The pool looked clean. The overall appearance is that of a city park. We would return.
This park is a wonderful example of the best way to design and operate a RV park. A truly wonderful park. Sites are level with a very wide concrete pad and paved driveways and roads. The landscaping is outstanding and the property is very well maintained. We took advantage of the park's permission to wash rigs and its free laundry facilities. We also partook of their BBQ dinner. The park is somewhat removed from I-40 so although their was definitely highway noise, it wasn't bad at all. They offer free cable TV with a good lineup, but it inexplicably does not include ESPN! The Wi-Fi was free and very good. Although we didn't use it, the pool looked very nice. All in all, it would be hard to beat this terrific park!
Note that this park does not accept credit cards but takes personal checks. The park is well located on Route 66. There is some traffic noise but it is mostly non-truck traffic. The gentleman who checked us in was quite friendly and helpful. The hookups are fine and the Wi-Fi and cable TV were very good. The sites are fairly level and ours had some trees for privacy. There are no restrooms or laundry. The park is located in the former courtyard of a 1941 motel, which is no longer in use and in disrepair. It is what one might call a funky setting for an RV park. I would like to see the owner fix up the office to look more attractive and professional. It now is just a make-shift facility that is quite bare-bones and unappealing. We would return. We highly recommend Del's Restaurant, which is just two doors west of the RV park. The food was outstanding!
This was one of the better urban parks we've encountered. We enjoyed our stay very much, in large part because of the friendly owners who work very hard to maintain their park and to accommodate their customers, many of whom are repeat customers. It's usually full so be sure and make reservations. It's a very convenient place to stay when visiting Santa Fe, with a short drive to the old town and the attractions there. There are also many stores and restaurants very near the park. There are enough trees to provide some shade and ambiance and the park is nicely landscaped. We were not bothered by traffic noise on Cerillos Road because our site was not near the road. Although we did not use it, the pool was heated and looked very clean. Some interior roads are very narrow and the pull-through spaces, although adequate for our 5th wheel, are not long enough for large motorhomes. Those are placed in larger back-in sites with a wider road for maneuvering. We would return.
We loved this campground! It is situated in an incredibly beautiful high valley at an elevation of 8,440 ft. You can walk across Forest Service land about 100 yards, to the lovely Conejos River, which is popular for fishing. The temperatures in the height of the summer are moderate. The new RV sites on the south side, where we stayed, are spacious and have unobstructed views of the forest. We were able to use our roof-top satellite for TV. There is no cable and no antenna TV reception. These great sites are for sale, however, so eventually there may be none available to rent. The older sites are smaller, closer to the road and do not have the great views that the newer ones do. It is very quiet and peaceful at this campground, a perfect place for a long summer stay. However, there is no cell phone reception. You must drive to Antonito, 12 miles away, to be in the range of any cell towers. The wonderful and accommodating owners, allow you to use their landline phone to make calls and to receive emergency calls. Although there is Wi-Fi available in the office/recreation room, it does not reach the sites, which is a major inconvenience. Most of us much prefer working on our computers in the comfort and privacy of our own rigs. The lack of Wi-Fi at the sites and the lack of cell phone reception are the main drawbacks to this otherwise perfect campground, which is why I can’t rate it a '10'. But the scenery is beyond beautiful!
This is just an okay place for an overnight stop, since there are no better alternatives in the area. Please note that if you require WiFi and don't have your own, don't stay here. Their WiFi did not work at all in our site near the restrooms in the back of the park. Sometimes it showed up as one small bar on the list of available networks, and other times it didn't show up at all. At no time could we connect. Fortunately, our Sprint aircard worked but was slow. The park has an overall messy look and needs better maintenance and attention to detail. The gravel sites and roads could use more gravel, which would cut down on the dust. I would guess that the park could be muddy in the rainy season. On the plus side, the restrooms and showers in the back of the park are nice. Although we didn't use it, the pool was large and looked clean. We were in an area that had neither cable nor sewer, because we did not need those for an overnight stay. We were able to use our satellite TV. We had dinner at the restaurant on the property. The food was satisfactory, though nothing special, and it was over-priced for meals served on plastic plates. But it was convenient. We would return for an overnight stay only.
As others have said, this is a great overnight stop while traveling on Highway 287. It has easy access from the highway but we were not bothered by traffic noise. Trains run frequently nearby and use their horns, but we did not hear any during the night. We did not try the park's WiFi as we have our own Sprint aircard, which worked well. The park was neat and well maintained. Our rig needed no leveling side to side, which rarely occurs. We did not partake of the continental breakfast offered for $1.00 per person, nor did we use the pool, restrooms or showers. We will very likely stay here again.
Rate is weekly rate. The campground has a lot going for it, primarily its spectacular location on the Mississippi River. There is a paved walking path along the river to the bridge over the river. But improvements are needed in several areas. Cable should be provided to all sites, not just some, and should be included in the already too-high rates. Booster antennas and/or a better Wi-Fi system is sorely needed. Although we were fairly close to the office, we were never able to hook up to the system during our two week stay there. Fortunately, we had a Sprint Aircard to use, but the connection was very slow. As others have mentioned, the large-size gravel driveways are terribly rough and noisy. If a vehicle drives by your site at 6:00 a.m., as they do most mornings, I can guarantee that you will be awakened. Most sites are not shaded, although we were fortunate enough to have shade at our site. The washers and dryers are expensive and there aren't enough of them. Although we didn't use them, it seems that four self-enclosed bathrooms are insufficient for this very large campground. Natchez, just across the river, is a very nice city to explore. We enjoyed the charming downtown and visiting the antebellum homes Longwood and Stanton. We did not like the Cock of the Walk restaurant, either the depressing interior, the rushed service or the mediocre (at best) food.
This park is well located in the center of what is known as the Cajun Coast. No showers or restrooms or other facilities, but we didn't need those anyway. Sites are spacious with some grass between them. The RV area is away from roads and from the casino and was very quiet. The grounds are maintained well and trash is picked up daily at your site. Spraying for mosquitoes was done at least twice, and possibly more, during our week-long stay. We were not bothered by mosquitoes. There is no shade and it was extremely hot when we were there. Note that there is NO Wi-Fi. Our Sprint Broadband card worked but was very weak. There was no Verizon cell coverage but our AT&T phone worked well. The food in the casino's Cafe restaurant was good. We would return. We enjoyed a swamp tour with Cajun Jack in Patterson.
This is a very pleasant, well managed and nicely maintained campground. We spent several days here while visiting Lafayette and the surrounding area. The gravel sites are very long and there is adequate space, and grass, between them. Although it is close to the I-10, there is amazingly little noise from the highway. There was occasional train noise during the night from a track about a half mile south, but this rarely bothered us. There are small trees planted in most sites that will eventually provide shade, but there is no shade now. The WiFi was very fast and reliable, with a better connection than with our Sprint Broadband card. The Cable TV was great. Verizon and AT&T cell reception was good. My only complaint was that the laundry was a very cramped room with only three washers and three dryers, which seemed inadequate for the size of the park. If you visit Lafayette, we highly recommend Prejeans for great food and live Cajun music, as well as Randol's, which also has a dance floor. In both cases, the music begins around 7:00 p.m.
This is a beautiful and comfortable park. It's in a convenient location west of Shreveport, convenient to I-20 but far enough away to be quiet. The property has many beautiful tall pine trees primarily around the edge of the park, providing nice shade to the back-in sites. There are smaller trees on many of the pull-thru sites in the middle of the park. If you have roof top satellite, it should work in the pull-thru sites. The sites are very long and wide with grass in between. The owners and staff are very friendly and helpful and maintain the park to a high level. The restrooms are some of the nicest and cleanest I've ever seen. We did not use the pool but it was very appealing and clean. The cable TV had a good signal and many channels. The Wi-Fi worked most of the time but did tend to drop out several times a day for brief periods. The laundry room appears to be too small for the number of sites. The primary work that could improve the park would be to add more and longer concrete pads. Most of the sites are grass and gravel. Also, some of the roads need paving or re-paving. We would return.
Rate is a monthly rate. This is the nicest urban RV park we’ve stayed in during three years of fulltime traveling. To us, the best adjective to describe it is quiet. That is our primary consideration when we choose a park. Secondly, it is lovely because virtually every site is shaded by huge beautiful oak trees and the sites are laid out haphazardly so it does not have that parking lot look. The roads are paved and the sites are gravel. The location can’t be beat. It is located at the edge of a quiet residential area near I-20 and Cooper Street, but is convenient to an amazing number of restaurants and retail stores, including a large mall. You will probably not be able to use a roof-top satellite dish, but there is cable TV. There is WiFi but we used our own air card. The office staff and the maintenance personnel were very helpful and the grounds were also nicely maintained. The pool was large and looked nice but it was closed when we were there. The only areas needing improvement were the laundry and restrooms. The laundry in the back of the park is tiny, dark and unpleasant. The machines in both laundries are antiquated and should be replaced. It’s a real trick just to get the quarters into the slots. There is no way for users to even clean out a filter between dryer loads. There appear to be insufficient restrooms for the size of the park. Although we didn’t use them, the restrooms would be very inconvenient and involve quite a walk for people in most sites. All in all, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this park and plan to return. We highly recommend it.
Rate is with Golden Age Passport. The park is well located for visiting Fort Worth's attractions. It is a beautiful park with very spacious sites spread out for quite a distance along the lake. Many sites are shaded and some are very close to the water. The road through and beyond the park makes for a wonderful bike ride alongside the lake. The water level was very low so that hundreds of tree stumps in the lake were revealed. Few people ventured out in boats. The park is far enough from Highway 377 to be very quiet. Although we did not use the restrooms and showers, I observed that they were dingy, rather primitive and in serious need of updating. As typical with COE parks, there are no sewers. If there were sewers and nicer restrooms, I would have given the park a 10. We would return.
Rate is based on Golden Age Passport rate. We loved this park! The lake and scenery are just beautiful. The sites are large with lots of space in between and are nicely maintained. The staff was helpful and friendly. We had site #25, which had a wonderful view of the lake. We highly recommend this site. Although it was a back-in, it was angled to make it easier to back in. There are only two pull-thrus in the park. Each site has a sheltered picnic table and fire ring. There was a boat ramp close to our site, although we did not use it. We received good reception with our satellite TV, our Sprint Internet Card and Verizon and AT&T cards. The County Sheriff and the park hosts make regular patrols in the park to make sure rules are followed, which we appreciated. I would have rated it a 10 if our site had 50 Amp and sewer. We will definitely return to this park.
Rate is on a weekly basis. We spent the winter at this very nice urban park, which is superior to most parks in cities. It is conveniently located near downtown. A city bus that drops you at the Riverwalk in 15 minutes stops in front of the park. There is also direct access out the park's back gate to an 8-mile bike trail next to the San Antonio River, which we enjoyed very much. The management and employees are very friendly and helpful and operate the park in a very efficient manner. The park is attractive and meticulously maintained. The pull-thru sites are very long and wide with grass and some trees between the sites and patios and picnic tables at all sites. Most of the back-in sites are short and narrow. Since this park is fully booked throughout the winter, make reservations far in advance and try to get a pull-thru. Avoid sites at the south end of the park (approximately pull-thru sites above #100 and nearby back-ins) because of the FedEx facility next door. It is very noisy at all hours of the day and night. We used our own Internet card so we did not use the parks fee-based service. We were able to use our satellite dome for TV, although we also used the park's excellent cable TV service. We will return whenever we visit San Antonio.
We stayed three nights in this park while visiting Bush Presidential Library in College Station. This is strictly a utilitarian type of place - it provides the basics you need but no ambiance at all. It is located in an industrial area and has no attractive features or landscaping. The Cable TV is excellent and has 70+ channels. Wi-Fi is offered but we used our own Internet card. The sites, which are fairly narrow, have a little grass between them but no trees, except for a few on the perimeter. Most of the residents appear to be permanent. Some of the units are very old and unattractive, but the lots are free of junk. The park serves its purpose, but we would not return.
This is a beautiful park with 10 very nice paved pull-through full hook up sites. Each site has a fire ring, picnic table and grill. The sites are nicely shaded and separated from the other sites by trees. Our rig needed considerable leveling. Five of the sites have direct access to a lovely, clean, spring-fed lake. The park offers swimming and has a swimming platform in the lake. When we were there in the fall, canoes and pedal boats were available to rent on the weekends. There is a nice hiking trail around the lake. The other trails noted on the map from the visitor center have not been marked or maintained and are impossible to follow. During the day, this park is very peaceful and quiet. Our one complaint - and a big one it is - is that two large dogs kept outside in the fenced yard of the ranger's nearby on-site residence barked frequently all night long every night, keeping us from ever getting a good night's sleep. They start at about midnight and end at first light. They must sleep during the day. Although the outside temperature was perfect for sleeping, we had to close our windows and turn on the air-conditioning in an attempt to sleep, but even that wasn't enough. We will be making a complaint to the Parks and Wildlife Commission. We would love to return but would only do so if assured the dogs are not left outside to bark during the night.
This park has the basics and is convenient to town but we would not want to spend more than a few days there. The owner is very friendly and helpful. The long pull-throughs are located on a gravel parking lot with no trees, shrubs, grass or any features to separate the sites from one another. Not very attractive. The back-ins at least have shade from the trees along the creek. The Cable TV is good. We used our own Wi-Fi, not the park's. Although the park is on a busy highway, traffic noise is minimal, especially in the back where we were. However, during one of the nights we were there dogs barked loudly all night. We probably would return but only for a couple of days.
Rate reflects senior discount on weekdays. We thoroughly enjoyed our 9-day stay at this very beautiful and quiet park. We stayed in Loop A, which has spacious paved sites, most of which are pull-throughs shaded by huge pine trees. Most also have a view of the lake. All sites have paved patios, picnic tables and fire pits. There are several wonderful trails to hike, the best of which is the Cedar Falls trail, which leads to the falls. You can also drive to an overlook at the falls if you are unable to make the hike. The lake is lovely and suitable for canoeing. Canoes and paddle boats are available for rental in the summer only. No swimming is allowed. There is also a lodge with a restaurant that is open year-round. The food was nothing special but certainly convenient, as it is a 20-mile drive to the nearest town, Morrilton, for either groceries or restaurants. We would happily return to this absolute dream of a park.
This is a outstanding campground located in a very beautiful setting on a high ridge surrounded by green lawns and forest. It is very quiet. Many sites are shaded. The landscaping is exceptionally nice and is well maintained, as are the bathroom facilities and pool. The managers obviously run a tight ship and wish to please the customers. You are escorted to your site. The free WiFi is very strong. The park has two antennas. We chose an unshaded site so we could use our roof satellite TV. There is a trolley stop at the park and the park also has its own shuttle to town. The only reason we did not rate this park a "10" is that, although the pull-throughs are very long, they are quite narrow and most share a hook-up pedestal. Although we were fortunate to have no immediate neighbors for our four-day stay, many units were much too close for comfort, in our opinion. FYI, we really enjoyed the Ozark Mountain Hoe-down and loved the food and ambiance at the Bavarian Inn's restaurant.
Rate is weekly rate with Escapees membership. We enjoyed our three-month stay at this mobile home park with some RV sites in the front section. Its main advantages are that it is quiet, convenient and has large grassy sites, many of which are shaded by huge trees. There is a very nice, clean pool. It is just a short drive to downtown, restaurants and shopping and you can ride bikes on the River Trail just outside the entrance. The trail system extends for miles on both sides of the Arkansas River. There are some old and poorly maintained mobile homes in the park, but most are in the rear section. A few of the long-term RV sites have some junk outside. However, the park is generally well maintained. There were several management turnovers during our stay. We used our own Sprint wireless card and were able to use our satellite TV. Tulsa is a terrific city. Be sure and walk around the downtown, which is filled with wonderful art-deco buildings, and don't miss the Gilcrease and Philbrook Museums. We would return.
This park, located just a few miles north of Muskogee, is acceptable only for an overnight or brief stay. All sites are very long pull-thrus. Roads and sites are gravel with strips of grass in between. However, the grading job was very poor because when it rains, as it did during our stay, the sites become a quagmire of mud and pools of water. We had to step into water for three days when exiting our rig. Water surrounded our rig. There is no shade. There are no recreational facilities but there is an low-cost laundry and restrooms, each with one shower. There is no cable TV. Please note that there is NO Wi-Fi! This did not affect us because we have a Sprint Internet Card, which worked well, but I can't imagine why the owners would not provide this basic necessity. It surely cuts down on their business. There were only a few other guests during our stay. There is a cell tower within sight of the park so our Verizon and AT&T phones worked well. Although this park is on busy Highway 69, highway noise was minimal. We had a site way in the back of the park. There is a spur railroad track that goes along the edge of the park, but only one train per day passed by between 3:00 a.m. and 5:00 a.m. It does not blow its horn and the noise is not intrusive. We would not return to this park. Baker's Fish House, about two miles north of the park, is worth a visit.
Rate is senior rate for Cherokee campsite with 30 Amp and no sewer. We checked out the full hookup 50 Amp sites at Choctaw but did not like them. The sites are all back-ins lined up close together. The sites were so shaded it seemed dark and gloomy. Also, there is no view of the lake! We preferred the Cherokee area. It is more open and every site has a view of the lake. Our pull-thru site and many others had concrete pads. Other sites are mostly dirt. Because of high water, many sites were unavailable. We enjoyed our stay very much. The view and the lake are wonderful. We enjoyed riding our bikes throughout this very large park. It also has a restaurant and golf course. We would love to return.
Rate is with senior discount. This is an outstanding park. This huge park is located in a beautiful, hilly, forested area with spectacular scenery and views. We stayed in a pull-thru with 50 Amp and sewer in the Old Circle area. Sites are very large and are secluded from one another. There were few other campers when we were there, so we almost had the place to ourselves. Note that the RV campgrounds are not near the three lakes on the property. The staff was great. We noted that the views from the 20-room lodge and many of the very nice cabins were spectacular. It was fun exploring Robbers Cave, and we especially loved the hiking trails. The lakeside restaurant did not open until May 23rd so we weren't able to eat there. You can rent paddle boats and canoes on the lake and there is also a nice swimming pool, a snack bar and miniature golf course that did not open until Memorial Day weekend. The grounds and facilities were well kept. This was an absolutely spectacular park! We would love to return.
This is an outstanding park and we thoroughly enjoyed our one-week stay. The area is remote and beautiful and there is no highway noise. Camping sites are spacious and offer good privacy. Our site was a pull-thru with a view of the lake. Except on the weekend, there were few other guests so we had the place almost entirely to ourselves. We enjoyed hiking the lovely trail through the woods and riding our bicycles throughout this large park. We noted that the day use areas, playgrounds, boat ramps and fishing piers were very nice. The restrooms were immaculate. There were many really nice cabins and screened shelters available for those without RVs or tents. Our Verizon cell phone and Sprint Internet card worked nut our AT&T cell phone did not. I would have rated this a 10 if the sites had sewer.
Rate reflects Passport America weekly rate. We enjoyed our stay at this park. The location is away from major highways and pretty quiet. It only takes about 15 minutes to drive to downtown. It is an attractive park with many large trees in and around the park. The sites are concrete and level and the roads are paved. The short-term sites are all spacious pull-thrus located at the front of the park. We were able to use our satellite TV. Although the park provided free Wi-Fi, we used our own Internet card. The facilities, including office, pavilion, private restrooms, spa and pool are all brand new and very nice. The only reason I didn't rate this park a 10 is that the new pool is very tiny. The grounds are maintained well and there is nice landscaping with shrubs and flowers in the public areas. The longer term guests are located in the rear part of the park and have their own laundry and restroom building. This area of the park is more shaded, crowded and not as attractive as the short-term area, but seemed to be generally well maintained. There were just a few very old units that had been parked there way too long. We definitely plan to return to this park whenever we travel to Austin.
We stayed here because we have relatives in the area, it was convenient and there was no space at the nearby Corps of Engineers parks. Fortunately our stay was for only three days because this park is located next to the I-35 and the traffic noise was terrible. The roads need improvement. The sites are gravel, not at all level and are too closely spaced. However, the owners are nice and the bathrooms and pool were well maintained. No cable TV is offered. We did not use the fee-based Internet so do not know how well it worked. Other than the Corps of Engineers parks, which are often filled, there are no other RV parks in the Temple/Belton area. We will not return unless the public campgrounds are full.
This was an outstanding park. It is located in a beautiful heavily forested area along the Brazos River. There are wonderful hiking and biking trails. We saw deer in the mornings and evenings. The park is remote and there is no traffic noise. About all you ever hear are birds. The sites are all long pull-thrus with lots of shade and space. Only a few of the sites were occupied so we had plenty of privacy. Despite the trees, we were able to hook up to satellite TV. Verizon and AT&T cell phone coverage was not very good. Our Sprint Internet card worked. The facilities and grounds are well maintained and the staff is very helpful. There is a golf course and club house with dining facilities. This park is our idea of a perfect getaway and we look forward to returning.
This new, and well-maintained park, could have been much nicer had it been designed to accommodate fewer RVs. As it is, it has a "sardines packed in a can" feel to it. The sites are too narrow and too short for the biggest rigs, and the streets are way too narrow, and turns too tight. If you're lucky, you might get a tiny glimpse of the ocean across the highway, but chances are all you will see are other RVs. The grounds and facilities, including a pool, rec room, workout room, etc. are nicely maintained, and the owners are helpful, when you can find them. However, because they are the only employees on site, and are usually elsewhere cleaning or something, there is rarely anyone in the office. We had to call a phone number posted on the door to find someone to check us in. They could really use some workcampers in this park. Near the end of our stay, the large group of motorscooter people mentioned by the previous reviewer, most of whom were camping in tents, arrived and things went downhill fast. The noise was horrible and went on into the early morning hours one night. We loved Galveston, however. We checked out the nearby Galveston State Park and it was wonderful, with huge sites, all right next to the ocean. There are no sewer hookups, but we'll do without one for a week to stay in this beautiful place next winter.
We loved our week-long stay at this lovely park. The scenery was beautiful. The park was quiet, although there is a little traffic noise from the adjacent highway. The park is well-maintained. We were pleased with the spacious, pull-thu sites with full hookups, including 50 amp, in a wooded setting along the San Antonio River. There are interesting historical sites on park grounds and nearby. We enjoyed the scenic bike/hiking trail from the park to the historic town square. We would love to return and highly recommend this park.
Rate is monthly rate, which includes electric. We spent December through March in this attractive park, which is conveniently located to all San Antonio has to offer. It has fairly narrow concrete sites with patio and picnic tables. The pool and spa are exceptionally nice, as is the laundry room, which has all new equipment. There are a few trees and some grass in the park. Roads are paved but need some repair. The staff is great. Many activities are offered. The property is kept in generally excellent shape, except for the roads. Picnic tables are in the process of being repainted. Trash is picked up at your site daily. Guests are guided to their sites. Shuttle service is offered to nearby Sea World when it is open. The free Cable TV is good. Tengo Net WiFi is offered for a fee but we did not use it because we have a Sprint Aircard, which worked well. The primary complaint we have, which is no fault of the park, are the dogs in the surrounding neighborhood, which is divided from the park only by a fence. They bark a lot,m including during the night. There are also lots of children in those homes who make a lot of noise playing outside into the evening hours. There is almost no road noise, however. All in all, we enjoyed our stay here and will return.
This is an outstanding park, with a scenic location, in a working pecan orchard along Johnson Creek. The rate reflects a monthly rate, including charges for electricity used. The owners and staff are wonderful. The park is beautifully maintained, and is small and quiet. The clubhouse, which also contains the restrooms, showers, exercise room, pool room and laundry, is a former private home that is beautifully decorated, cozy and nicely maintained. We attended a wonderful Thanksgiving potluck that was like visiting someone's home, complete with a fire in the fireplace. The park's roads and sites are all paved or concrete with grass between the sites. The sites are very long enough for the largest rigs and there is adequate space between them. This was a true gem of a park. Our only complaints were that there were no picnic tables, and that there were only two washers and two dryers, which were not enough. We understand that there are plans to add another laundry room by next summer. We loved our stay here and plan to return next month.
We enjoyed our stay at this very nice park. Sites were very long and wide. Although there are no trees, the offset design of the sites and the wide grassy strip between them provided adequate privacy. Picnic tables under an attractive shelter are at each site. The utility posts, each with a light, are very attractive as well. The park is well maintained. It is adjacent to several small lakes stocked with trout. There are plenty of hiking trails around the lake to enjoy. The WiFi was adequate but not real strong. Cell phones worked well. There is a free shuttle service to the casino nearby. The buffet there was outstanding. There is a railroad crossing at the entrance to the park. There are several commuter trains and two Amtrak trains during the day and two or three freight trains during the night and early morning hours that blow their horns as they approach the crossing. The noise is quite loud. There is also some road noise from nearby I-25. The office employees were not very friendly or helpful. Overall, however, this was a great park. We would return.
We loved this park during a five-day stay. We had a pull-through site with water and 30 amp electric that we reserved by phone. Site included an adobe-type covered picnic shelter. Sites were well spaced giving campers a lot of space and privacy. It was incredibly quiet. During our visit at the end of October there were almost no other campers. There was a campground host nearby plus the Ranger. Three of the five campgrounds were closed. Lots of deer wandered into the campground in the morning and evening. We had no issues with bugs. Our Verizon and AT&T cell phones worked. We had a very slow connection using our Sprint Broadband Card. It was just pure pleasure to relax in and wander around this wonderful State Park. We would love to return.
Very nice park with an exceptionally good location on a hill overlooking Santa Fe. Price is the weekly rate. The park is well maintained. Sites are not large but are adequate. There are no trees so our satellite TV worked well. Most need leveling. Some have nice concrete patios. A few sites, like ours, did not have room for a picnic table. The building housing the recreation room, laundry, office and restrooms is one of the nicest we have seen. Bathrooms are quite large and very clean. The laundry machines were $2.00 each and some of my laundry needed two cycles to dry. It is quite an uphill walk to the dumpsters. The WiFi was free and excellent. The park is away from the highway so highway noise was minimal. We would give this park a 10 if it had Cable TV, the laundry was less expensive and if there were convenient trash receptacles. We would return.
We enjoyed our stay at this very pleasant and attractive park. The rate we paid was the weekly rate for a 50-amp full hook-up site. The owner/manager was very pleasant and helpful. The desert landscaping was quite attractive. Although the sites in our area were side-by-side, the sites are wide enough that it doesn't matter. Also, a fence separated your picnic table from your neighbor's. The tables are on concrete pads. The sites in the 50 amp section are very wide but not quite long enough for many of the largest rigs in the 50-amp sites. The 30 amp and non-full hook-up sites appeared to be much longer. We noticed some big rigs having difficulty maneuvering into and out of the sites in our area on the narrow interior roads. The WiFi was free and the signal strong. Cell phones worked well. Overall, this park appeared to be a very well run and maintained park. We would return.
We enjoyed our week-long stay at this campground because of the natural setting, large trees around the exterior and grassy meadow in the center. The ambiance was rustic and pleasant. It was almost the end of the season so we had the place almost to ourselves. The owners were very pleasant and helpful. The free WiFi was good for several days but then was down for more than a day. The facilities could use some updating, i.e. adding more pull-throughs, 50 amp hookups, cable TV, and updated restrooms, showers and laundry. Potholes in the entrance driveway should have been filled. Overall, however, our stay was quite enjoyable.
This park's amenities, including free Cable and WiFi, worked very well. The owners are friendly and helpful. The park's location at the northern edge of town was convenient. It was fun seeing and hearing the Durango to Silverton train come through the park twice in the morning and twice in the afternoon. Although the park is adjacent to Hwy 550, most sites are located far below the level of the road, and traffic noise didn't bother us. The sites are too narrow and short. The large number of huge trees in the campground pretty much block out the sun, making the atmosphere too dark and oppressive for our taste. The trees and the narrow roads make maneuvering into the sites tricky. Entering and leaving the campground is also tricky due to the bumps at the roads edge and the steep, narrow gravel driveways. For those of you who will be riding the scenic railroad, we highly recommend that you take the motorcoach to Silverton and the train back to Durango. Our bus driver, Les, gave a marvelously informative narrative during the bus ride. You get no such narrative on the train. Take note that, although it didn't bother me, my husband became ill on the train due to the constant jerking back and forth and from breathing the coal smoke. Just a note to anyone who might be predisposed to such problems.
This was pretty nice park, especially considering the low cost. The gravel sites were very large and there was sufficient space between them. Our site, which was an end site, was perfectly level and had lots of grass on one side. The Cable TV was excellent. Our primary complaint was the poor quality of the free WiFi. It was so poor as to be virtually useless. We got very frustrated reconnecting dozens of times a day. When there was a connection, the signal was extremely slow. We ate only one meal at the Casino restaurant next door. The service was so poor that we never returned. Food was just adequate. We would return for a short stay if we were traveling through the area.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this beautifully landscaped park. The owners were exceptionally nice. They truly care about taking care of their guests. The sites had large concrete pads and each had a nice size tree. There were flowers everywhere. The spacious laundry and individual bathrooms were immaculate. The free WiFi and Cable TV were excellent. The park is far enough away from Route 50 to be very quiet. It caters to adults, making it doubly quiet. There is no shopping in the tiny town of Olathe, but Delta is 10 miles north and Montrose 10 miles south. Everything you might need can be found in those towns. Don't miss visiting the nearby Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park and the Grand Mesa National Forest. Both were "not to be missed" places. We hope to return to this campground in the future for a very extended stay. The only reason we did not give it a 10 rating was that there were no picnic tables and the sewer connection was at the far rear of the site. Be sure and have lots of sewer hose available.
We did not enjoy our stay at this park. The first problem was the difficult access driveways into the park. You drive your rig over quite a “hump” between the highway and the driveways. The park, despite its seemingly great location on the banks of the Arkansas River, has a major flaw – highway noise for those unfortunate enough, like us, who were unable to get a site on the lower level on the riverbank. We were in a pull-through on the upper level just a yards from busy Route 50, and the noise never stopped night or day. It was quite disturbing. These sites are also too close together and not long enough for our truck without parking sideways to our 5th wheel. There were no lower level sites available.) In addition to the noise issue, the 30 amp power sometimes dropped to an alarming degree, the water pressure was quite low, there was no Cable TV and we were unable to use our satellite because of large trees in our site. We received poor reception on three channels with our antenna. The free WiFi, however, was quite good. The recreation room was also nice. The laundry is probably too small for the number of guests. Many of the more desirable lower level river sites were occupied by seasonal guests from Texas. We would not return to this park. For those with no other options, we recommend that you do not stay at this park unless you can reserve a lower level site with 50 amps.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this campground, which has a beautiful setting at the base of Rocky Mountain National Park. We had a gorgeous view out the window of our 5th wheel. We had a spacious pull-thru in the "G" row, which is on the west side of the park. Not all sites were as spacious. There was very little road noise and it was extremely quiet at night. The staff was friendly and efficient. Guests are escorted to their sites. We did not use the 50 amp, WiFi, Cable TV or the restrooms so cannot comment on those amenities. The pool and spa were closed and we did not ask why. We would return.
I agree with previous reviewers that this campground has an overall run-down and shabby appearance. It’s too bad, because it is in a wonderful location with mountain views and lots of trees. Because it’s several miles away from Route 24 in Leadville, it is very quiet. The grounds are unkempt and not maintained. Tall grass and weeds are everywhere, as are potholes that quickly fill with water when it rains, which it did while we were there. We had to dodge muddy water just coming out of our door. The mud is tracked into the restrooms. We did not check out the laundry or showers. The campground lacks amenities such as 50 amp, Cable TV or WiFi. Because our Sprint Broadband card did not work there, we had no access to the Internet, which was very frustrating. The owner has several DSL connections installed in the dingy rec room, but we were unable to get it to work with either of our two computers. There was no one available to assist you. The owner apparently isn’t interested in installing what most of us wants, which is WiFi so we can work on our computers at our sites. Two of the days we spent at the campground were during the Labor Day weekend. The park was packed with local people, many in tent trailers and tents, who partied outdoors and were very noisy. The nightly rate was much too high for what you get. We would not return and we do not recommend this park. Unfortunately, it is the only private campground in Leadville.
This is a first rate urban park. The only reason we didn't rate it a "10" is that some of the sites are quite close together. That was not true in our case, however, because we had a pull-thru at the end of a row and had plenty of space on either side. The paved roads help keep the park quiet. The staff is extra friendly and efficient. Someone leads you to your site. Although we didn't use the pool or laundry, they appeared to be very clean. In fact, everything, including the landscaping, is very well maintained. There is a very nice lounge area with fireplace in the office building. We used our own Internet broadband card so cannot comment on the WiFi. We also didn't use the Cable TV. There was good local reception with our antenna. Although the park is located on a fairly busy highway during the day, it was pretty quiet at night. Relative to what we have paid at much less desirable parks, we felt the $38.00 nightly rate we paid to be reasonable.
This was an excellent park. The one negative was that the sites were much too close together. The staff was very friendly and they escort you to your site. The free WiFi was strong and the Cable TV offered many channels. The restrooms were spotless. It is very quiet at night. It is convenient to Cheyenne's downtown, railroad station, museums, etc. We especially enjoyed visiting the State Capitol building. We would return.
This is a very nice campground. The pull-through sites are exceptionally wide and long enough for the largest rigs. It is very well maintained. The staff was very nice. You are escorted to your site. The WiFi and Cable TV were excellent. Although we didn't use it, the pool looked very clean. It is set back a ways from the highway but there is still some highway noise. The only reason we didn't give it a 10 was almost no shade. Be prepared for it to get quite windy at times. We would return if in the area.
This park is satisfactory for a short stay to visit the charming town of Sheridan and the surrounding area, which was lovely. The owners are very friendly and helpful. The park has the basics - adequately sized spaces, full hookups, cable TV, free WiFi that worked well and modern laundry equipment. We did not check out the restrooms. Because there are no recreational facilities, few guests seemed to be families and it was, therefore, quiet. Although it's next to the freeway, it is much lower than the highway and the sound did not travel to the park to any bothersome degree. However, note that there is a nearby railroad switching yard and, at times, the horns were very loud, including during the night. If you are a light sleeper, you may need earplugs. Pete may suggest you dine at the Rib & Chop House nearby but be sure and make reservations. We did. But people arriving without reservations were told the wait was 45 min. to one hour on a weeknight. The food was good.
We thoroughly enjoyed our almost two-week stay at this lovely and very quiet campground along the Boulder River. The new owner is very anxious to please and obviously cares very much about his campground. He has made many improvements and plans more. The grounds are meticulously maintained and there are a lot of beautiful grassy areas and large trees. Although we were unable to use our Satellite because of the trees, but the site was otherwise so nice we didn't care. We had one of the few sewer sites but they offer a Honey Wagon service for a fee for the other sites and there is a dump station. The tent sites are separated from most of the RV sites, which we appreciated. One can fish the Boulder River from the campground and there are two trout ponds on-site that were very popular. Although it didn't affect us, some may find that the number of restrooms and laundry machines is inadequate for the size of the campground. Also, the WiFi was very slow, was down often, and did not reach all the sites, fortunately it reached ours. We were told that an order has been placed for an upgrade to the system. The campground was so comfortable, relaxing and beautiful that we would be happy to return for a lengthy stay.
This park was almost perfect. It was one of the best we've stayed in during nine months of traveling. The park and site design were obviously carefully thought out. The park is very meticulously maintained and facilities are kept in immaculate condition. Sites are spacious and there are wonderful 360 degree views of the surrounding mountains. Although it's along Highway 287, it is set back somewhat and we were not bothered by traffic noise. The charming town of Ennis is less than two miles away. The nearby Madison River is wonderful for fishing and floating. We would have given this park a 10 rating if cable TV was offered. Although we have satellite TV, it's always nice to watch the local programs and we could get only one station with our antenna. We did get good cell phone reception on Verizon and AT&T. Don't miss Yesterday's Restaurant inside the Ennis Pharmacy. They serve great breakfasts, lunches and ice cream treats. The Ennis Cafe, on the other hand, was terrible. We would definitely return.
Rate is with Passport America. Includes a $4.00 extra charge for 50 amp. Also paid $3.00, requested in cash only, for WiFi, which was very slow or at times unavailable. The good points for this campground were its location in a pretty valley with 360 degree views of mountains and the very friendly and helpful management. The sites were very narrow and short, so that all tow vehicles had to be parked at an angle to the rig. We lucked out with an end spot, which at least had open space on one side. The rest of the rigs were packed in like sardines. Most of the grass was dead but there were some small trees between most sites. We did not use the pool, which was extremely small. There was no store with basic essentials like bread or milk, but the small town of Victor was less than a mile away.
This park's good points are the beautiful, quiet setting, the friendly, helpful management and staff and the clean and attractive restrooms. Our site was in the back row, away from the highway and next to a pretty meadow. The park is 40 years old, however, and needs some serious updating. This would include, most importantly, adding 50 amp hookups. We blew the breaker several times trying to use our air-conditioning on 30 amp. The sites have side-by-side hookups, which few of us like. The sites are somewhat short for big rigs and the trees, although nice for shade, made getting into and out of sites very difficult. It required a lot of work to level our 5th wheel on our site. Additional washers and dryers are needed. The pool is very small and there were so many loud children in it at all times that we had no desire to use it. We would return only for a one-night stay.
This park is adequate for a brief stay and would be appealing to fishermen. It is old and needs upgrading. Hookups are shared. One of the electrical outlets on each post is 50 amp and the other is 30 amp. Not all sites have sewer. The sites are dirt and could use some maintenance, gravel and/or concrete pads. The WiFi worked reasonably well. The campground is quiet at night but there was noise from the construction work at the base of the dam throughout the day. There is good fishing access and a couple of nice hiking trails along the Provo River. We would not return.
This was a very nice park convenient to Capitol Reef National Park. The views from the campground in every direction were wonderful. The owners were helpful. The landscaping was well maintained. Our only complaint was that there were too few washers and dryers and they were expensive. The dryers need to be replaced. It took forever to dry anything. I gave up on some items and hung them up to dry in our 5th wheel. Although I didn't use the restrooms or showers, I looked at them and they appeared clean. I agree with a previous reviewer in that there should be more of them for the size of the place. The campground is set back from the road and it was very quiet at night. We would return. If you go there, don't missing dining at Cafe Diablo just down the road. The food was incredibly good!
Wonderful park in a spectacular setting. Well maintained facilities and efficient staff. The WiFi, which was $3.00, worked well for us. We used the nice indoor pool. The nearby Goulding's restaurant had good food and very efficient service during our visit. As mentioned in previous reviews, be aware that the grounds are fine red dirt. Be sure to wear old shoes because the soles of the shoes will stain. We enjoyed the two nearby hiking trails recommended by the manager. The sunrises and sunsets are to die for. We would return.
This was an outstanding park. We chose it because it is one of the few parks in and around Phoenix that welcome children. We were in Phoenix to visit with our grandchildren and were be able to have them stay overnight in our 5th wheel and enjoy the park's exceptionally nice pool. The park is well-maintained and all of the facilities are very clean. The perimeter of the park is lined with trees and shrubs that block out the surrounding industrial neighborhood. We heard only faint sounds from the traffic on the I-17, which did not disturb our sleep at all. We highly recommend this park and will return when in the area.
Very clean, well-maintained campground. We were there in 100+ degrees heat. The primary amenity missing was a pool, which sure would have been appreciated. One would think that a campground in this southern Arizona location would have one. The sites were gravel and spacious enough for our 32' 5th wheel & long bed truck. Nice shrubs. Friendly host. Very clean restrooms and showers. Campground is within walking distance to the small, historic downtown. However, in June the few businesses there are closed. Rate was with Passport America.
Outstanding State park. Level, paved, spacious and private sites, many with electric and water. Lots of trees and other attractive natural plants. Gorgeous view of the nearby mountains. Lots of hiking trails available, although it was so hot during our brief stay that we were unable to take advantage of them. This is a very well-maintained park. Nicest bathrooms and showers we have seen in a State park. We would love to return during the cooler months.
We agree with the previous reviewer's comments. This was a beautiful park, even during June, when it reached 105 degrees both of the days we were there. We had the park to ourselves, as well as the large, clean pool to ourselves. The facilities are well-maintained. Because it was the off-season, some facilities were closed and construction was taking place. However, we enjoyed our stay. The staff was very helpful and friendly. We would love to return and stay longer during the cooler months.
This is a very beautiful and well-maintained park. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there. We stayed a total of six weeks, in two-week increments. The large, full hook-up sites are paved and level, with picnic tables and fire rings. The pull-through sites are huge. There is a lot of room between the sites, especially in the south loop. Most sites have very lovely views, including of the lake, which is stocked weekly. Non-motorized boats are permitted. There are lots of trails for biking, horseback riding and hiking. The campground is very quiet, especially at night. The staff was nice and helpful. They patrol the grounds regularly. The negatives are that the bathrooms are spartan, there are no doors on the stalls, there is occasional odor from the neighboring dairy farm, and lots of flies. The campground was otherwise so wonderful, however, that we were happy to deal with those issues. Did not use the showers. Unusual for a public campground was the laundry, with two washers and two dryers. We will return to this campground whenever we are in the area.
The interior roads and sites are poorly maintained and very dirty and dusty. Some pull-throughs are side-by-side and very close. Maintenance is spotty and the general appearance of the RV area is poor. We had to ask rangers to have the bathrooms cleaned after three days with no maintenance. They are not cleaned on a regular basis. The showers are pay showers with no water temperature adjustment, torn shower curtains, etc. There are no patrols or security after 7 p.m. Weekend campers, many in large groups, were very noisy but staff, some of whom resided in the few sites in the park with sewer connections, made no effort to quiet them down. A pack of large wild dogs roamed in and around the park, scaring campers and their pets. We were told they have frequented the area for some time. We can't imagine why animal control has not become involved. There are some nicely kept grassy areas in the day use area, an attractive small lake and nice equestrian and walking trails. But the campground itself needs a lot of work. We were told that a new campground with full hookups will soon be built next to this park. From our site, we could view the adjacent newly-completed county park headquarters building. We wish some of the money spent on this lavish building could have been used to maintain the RV park, add sewer connections, and the staff to enforce the rules. We would not return.
This is a very clean, well-maintained park. The landscaping is beautiful and there are lots of beautiful shade trees. The managers are friendly and helpful. The park is geared to retirees. We enjoyed a pre-Thanksgiving Day potluck there. There is some traffic noise, mostly during the day. The park recently added WiFi that was available at our site. The one amenity that the park should add is Cable TV. The reception from our antenna was not very good.
I would have rated this a 10 if not for the diesel truck noise mentioned by the previous reviewer. The grounds are beautiful landscaped and maintained and the sites will accommodate the largest rigs. There are stables for horses and even two fenced in areas for dogs to play in, complete with a bench for their owners. The facilities are nicely maintained and equipped. The views of the mountains from the park, if one looks past the truck stop, are wonderful. We would return to this park.
We would have rated this park higher if the sites were longer. We could barely park our truck in our space. None of the spaces are long enough for large motorhomes with towed vehicles. There was quite a lot of noise from the adjacent I-80 freeway. The free WiFi worked well but the Cable TV offered did not include local NBC, CBS or ABC channels. The restrooms, showers and laundry were the cleanest I've ever seen. The owners were especially friendly and helpful. We believe the best thing the park owners could do for their new business is to reconfigure their property to contain fewer, but larger, sites.
This is not a destination park but was acceptable for brief stay. There was some train noise during the night but the highway noise was minimal. There are only a few pull-throughs but they will accommodate larger rigs. The sites are dirt and gravel. The building housing the restrooms and showers is a dilapidated mobile home and not very inviting, although the facilities appeared to be clean. It would be nice if a modern building could be constructed for these facilities. About half the sites appear to be occupied by long-term residents. We would return for an overnight stay.
This KOA was better than most, except in terms of price. As with most KOAs, it was over-priced. There were extra charges for Cable TV, WiFi and 50 amp. The WiFi worked well. The sites were spacious but, as usual with KOAs, the noise caused by the gravel driveways was annoying. Because the park was set back quite a distance from highway, it was very quiet. We would stay there again.
To our knowledge, this is the only RV park in Ketchum/Sun Valley/Hailey area, so there is little incentive for the owners to make improvements. The RV spaces are located along Route 93. The remainder of the park is devoted to mobile homes situated behind the RV section. The park was very busy during our stay. Although the side-by-side pull-thru sites were long enough, they were much too narrow. The manager warned us that the WiFi probably would not work, and he was right. He explained that the volume of users was too high for the system. There was no laundromat. The park was nicely located next to a 30-mile off-road bike trail that we enjoyed using. It was also close to the Wood River, renown for its fishing. We would return if we visited that area of Idaho again, because there are no other options.
This park's sites had long pull-thrus with easy access. Most sites had concrete patios and some shade. The Cable TV was good as was the WiFi. It was the first time we had ever encountered good free WiFi service at our site at a KOA. The location of the park was convenient to Twin Falls' major shopping areas. One drawback to the location, however, was the noise from major construction going on adjacent to the park.
This was a surprisingly nice park. The sites were all spacious pull-throughs with full hookups and well-maintained landscaping, including trees. Because it was located behind the casino and hotel, it was away from the road and very quiet. Would have rated it a 10 if it had 50 amp and WiFi. We would return. The office personnel were friendly and helpful.
The overall appearance of this park was very poor. Most of the units were old deteriorating trailers housing permanent residents. One must drive through this area to reach the area for overnight travelers. The newer, open sites at the rear of the park were adequate for large rigs. The WiFi was very poor. We rarely were able to access the system, requiring us to take our computer to the office, which was very inconvenient. We did not utilize the park's restrooms because they were too inconveniently located. We would not return.
This wonderful small park was our favorite in five months of traveling through the northwest. It is situated in a remote, quiet area among mature trees in a beautiful setting along the Salmon River. There are spectacular mountain views in all directions. Although it is just off the highway, it was very quiet because there was very little traffic. The owners were very friendly and helpful. The park is maintained very well. There is a wonderful gift shop on the premises. The free WiFi was the best we have encountered. The only thing lacking was Cable TV but that was a small inconvenience for the joy of staying in such a lovely park. We stayed for one week but are looking forward to returning for a longer stay.
This was overall a wonderful park, although we agree with the previous reviewer that the pull-thru sites were too short and the interior roads too narrow. However, the grounds were attractive, very well maintained, and the owners were very helpful. It would be nice if Cable TV was available because the antenna reception there is poor. We enjoyed our stay there.
Our pull-thru site was spacious. Free WiFi was available at our site. Most sites are shaded. The showers were in individual rooms with locking doors and no windows. They were small, too dark and somewhat claustrophobic. Only two of three showers were operable because owner said water pressure was not good enough to have all three in service. The primary issues we had with this park were the highway noise from I-90 and numerous unattractive permanent mobile homes and campers lining the route to and from our site. The owners were very helpful.
This park is nicely situated among tall trees but its overall appearance is poor. It has new owners, who have their work cut out for them. The park has obviously been allowed to deteriorate for years and is in need of much maintenance and updating. The grounds were in poor condition. There are insufficient bathrooms for the number of sites. There is no WiFi, despite it being listed as an amenity in several directories. Cable TV was good but was only available in a few sites. Trash bins always overflowing. Highway noise and trains blowing their whistles throughout the night disturbed our sleep. The park has an overall unkempt appearance.
This park was very unattractive and a disappointment. It advertises that it is big-rig friendly but the sites were the narrowest we have ever encountered. There was barely room for our truck and our neighbors were only a few feet away. The access roads were extremely narrow. There are few amenities. WiFi was available for a fee. You had to drive through the permanent trailer area, which was very unattractive, to get to the overnight sites. The staff was very pleasant and helpful.
This is our favorite campground. It is truly a gem with a beautiful setting on the Methow River. The owners are very friendly and care very much about their campground and customers. The only negatives were the highway traffic noise at night and the fact that the Wi-Fi was only available in the office. The owner said a new system was on order. We would love to stay there again.
This park has a wonderful location on Sun Lake and offers many recreational facilities and other amenities. However, we would not return. We were put off by the crowded and messy looking campsites. There were often a large number of people, vehicles, tents, recreational equipment and all kinds of other gear crowded onto many of the sites. We were unable to get a good night's sleep because of noisy people drinking and talking loudly outside at nearby sites until 2:00 a.m. or later. The management did not enforce its "quiet time" policy from 11:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. It also did not enforce its own rules about the number of people or vehicles allowed at each site. There were apparently no security patrols during the night. If you want a relaxing vacation, don't go here. When we complained about the late night noise, we did not even receive an apology.
