The rate cited is based on staying one month, and electric is NOT included in that rate either. Wonderful park, beautifully maintained, WiFi is extra, good cable TV, wonderful mail system, office staff is above and beyond nice, helpful and informative. The grounds are gorgeous, nice picnic tables furnished at all sites; large pull-through sites for the month-long stays, large cement stands; very level, manicured grounds and rules are enforced. Definitely would stay again and would recommend to anyone coming to Salem. Was also a great location for all the necessary shopping and access to interstate.
From the start we had problems with the office staff. Was assured we had one site, got here to find "someone" had given the site away. We were given another site. (Had to get our mail we had ordered, changed to reflect the "new site" we had been told just the day before, was the one we would be in!) Gal annoyed she had to put out her cigarette to check me in, even when I told her to please take her time and finish. An office staff is the first introduction to a park; this was NOT good at all. When I checked on the mail delivery, was told I had to: "Go over to the warehouse." I told her it had been signed for, and miraculously she now found it in the office. This is the FIRST time I have ever called to the manager to complain about employees: rude, incompetent and not very accommodating. However, having said all that: the office staff is the only reason we didn't give the park a ten. Has nice, level spots, beautiful views, WiFi worked great and was very nicely maintained. Would stay here again and hopefully the office staff won't be the same.
Rates had increased $5 from our stay here two years ago and yet no discernible improvements. Still the awkward head-to-toe parking system. Very hard to get in touch with the camp host or whomever runs the park and has extremely odd working hours of four hours sporadically sectioned off during the day and e-mail seemed the only way to communicate. Good stopping off spot driving through Utah heading north and getting north of Salt Lake City. Would stay here again when passing through Utah. Good facilities and more permanent residents than last time even with the two week restriction for stays. No wi-fi, but used our broadband and satellite without a problem.
Very nice park with large level spots. It is a firing range, but that is only evident during daytime and even then wasn't overly loud or that annoying. Sites more suitable to fifth wheels than motorhomes because the coaches face the firing range whereas the fifth wheels would be afforded a spectacular view of downtown Las Vegas and at night time it was truly an awesome site to behold. VERY windy when we were there and had to repair our slide top awning as a result, but not the park's fault. Used our broadband and satellite dish to the fullest and would definitely stay here again. Office staff wonderfully helpful and accommodating.
As stated in previous reviews, good for visiting Joshua Tree NP. No amenities at all, inconvenient from park office to RV sites and not clearly stated where to park for the office. Very sandy and dusty and glad we missed some of the dust storms we were told were horrific when they occurred. Oddly set up, all the "amenities" like shed, cement stand and quasi-garage were located on the driver's side vs where one would actually use them. Don't imagine we'd ever want to stay here again - regardless of the nice commissary and new PX/NEX and gyms on base.
Our rate is based on staying for a month and then paying electric when we leave, but at ten cents a kw, won't be that much! There was only one row we could be on to have full hook-up coupled with the month long stay for the electric charges. Unfortunately our request for an end site put us next to a permanent resident (fortunately not here during our stay because we could literally reach out and touch) and the swimming pool. If here later, this site would be awful with folks utilizing the pool. In fairness, when we first arrived, we thought it very funky and worn looking, needing TLC, well, as the month progressed, so did the spring cleaning, picnic tables have cloths added, fire pits brought to the sites, mowing and raking going on - daily there's been work sprucing up the park. Can't beat the price and if we were to come through here again, would stay here, but would request another site away from the pool area.
Rate is based on staying for a month, and this also necessitated being in a back-in site vs. a pull-through that are saved for shorter stays. We were backed up to a wall along the street, so made for some loud street noises at times, but the sites were very large and gravel with cement walk out areas. Lots of park models and seem to be over-running the park. But, well run, office staff is very nice and informative and efficient. Location is convenient to many places of interest whether it be shopping or sightseeing. Would definitely stay here again.
Very nicely run park, clean, lots of activities to participate in, nice large hard-stands. Camp host is extremely nice and offers lots of information about the area and the fort and suggestions of places to see while in the area. Probably the only ding were the trees needed some manicuring, but this could be seasonal. We ended up having to back out to get out of our site or run the risk of scratching the heck out of the passenger side of the coach. Would definitely stay here again.
As stated in other write-ups, this is a good place to stop for the night to stretch out. Have updated the park since last being there by adding in nice laundry and bathroom facilities that the camp host proudly showed us. However, our site had dog waste all around it, smelled like urine. But again, there for an overnight while passing through heading out west. Would stay here again for the convenience. Were told there was Wi-Fi, but never checked.
Nice park and like the convenience to staying in the area and base amenities. Very nice camp host who was very helpful and informative. Our site's cable didn't work, or was iffy, but we were on a hard stand, water pressure was good and even though the park guidelines states time limits are in effect, it definitely had that very "lived in" look. Facilities were closed for repair and had been since our last visit almost a year ago. Needs some TLC.
As stated in other write-ups, this is a good one night park - right off I-20, and easy enough to get to. It has sites that are not level sites and arranged in a strange manner with parking parallel to the hook-ups. If an RV was put in front of us it would have been nightmarish to try to maneuver our way out. Again, good for a place off the highway and for one night. The office staff are friendly.
Large cement hard stands, well maintained and easy access to the park. Liked the process of paying over the phone and eliminated having to try to find the campground office; just pull in and set up. Would definitely stay here again, close proximity to all facilities needed on the post.
Rate is based on staying for one month. Large pull through sites, considerable space between sites. Always stay here when coming through San Antonio for our annual medical appointments. Easy accessibility to gym, commissary and PX - lots of construction around the entrance gates, but getting better with every visit. Will definitely stay here again. Very friendly and helpful office personnel.
Rate based on Good Sam's and staying one week getting one night free. There are level pull through sites, but VERY close to one's neighbor. This isn't particularly fun when the neighbor happens to be a heavy smoker and all the smoke kept coming into our kitchen window. Easy access, albeit cumbersome to get to I-35 with one way frontage roads. It is a good location to stop and visit friends up at Ft Hood and in Round Rock when we come through Texas. The office personnel are friendly.
Stay here when visiting family and this is the first time we stayed in the new part of the park - much closer together and tight - if we were to sit at our picnic table we would have been under our neighbor's kitchen slide-out. Level stands and cement, but the oddest set up for the roads in the new portion of the park to access. We'll definitely stay here again and easy access to all the base's facilities.
This service area has full hook-ups, is muddy when it rains, but at least the sites are level. A basic and functional park while waiting for service in one of the bays. Our price was reduced by 50% because we had to remain there for 3 weeks to get our wet bay repaired and consequently, with it being a design flaw, they reduced the campground fees. Everyone is super nice, super friendly and very helpful. The 'service area' is merely a large parking lot with hook-ups.
Very professional and efficient staff in the RV registration office. Great spacious hard-stands, good Wi-Fi connectivity, lots of cable TV stations, very well maintained. Walking distance to casino, got continued discount beyond just staying for a week when we registered (no-fee) with the Player's Club, called and an extra 10% discount was applied. Would definitely stay here again and would definitely recommend to others, and hope to return.
Another over rated park for tight, close spots where you can hear conversations in your neighbor's RV. They tried to place us in a site with no satellite access until we complained and were moved to another site; and that was a chore to make happen. Nice enough camp hostess, but made this reservation back in March, said specifically we needed south facing and then places us behind the only two large trees in the park. Pull in and back out for us, do have a nice view of the lake until the seasonal returned and pulled so far forward that it was almost totally blocked off - dusty, unlevel and again, too crowded, and just not worth the price charged at all. Wouldn't stay here again.
First off, the price for this park is outrageous for being located unlevel and on sand. So whenever coming in or out of the RV we had sand in our shoes. We were to be in another site that the Ranger assured us would have a view of the lake; NOT! So, we moved to one near the entrance to the park for this luxury, but with that came the street noise. We have to agree with what others have written; it's just too big a park for one person to maintain and it's really gotten run-down and needs an overhaul in a big way. Location is great across from a wayside stop and can cross the street to the sandy beaches, but for $39/night - not worth it. Couldn't get Wi-Fi in our site, no fudge was being made, nor did we ever see Mrs. Ranger anyway. Too much for too little and wouldn't camp here again.
Not sure we understood others comments about spacious sites, far from it. Our picnic table, located outside the door to the coach could ONLY be used if no neighbor was present otherwise would be sitting over their sewer hose. Screams of a former KOA park with close, shady sites, nice enough office staff, but when one is paying $32 a night, being told the office is the Wi-Fi site and it wouldn't reach our site is unacceptable. Thankfully we didn't need it, but not the point. Picnics tables are atrocious, large peeling paint and irregular, would NOT want to use them. Open fire pits, ground level with no grates, someone could have a VERY serious accident. This park needs some TLC and some serious upkeep to charge these fees. Dusty roads and gravel sites. Wouldn't stay here again if we return to this area.
What others have written is on the mark, no amenities and no roads within the park. Yet, we all have different requirements for what makes us happy in a park. This one was level, albeit on grass, still more level than others we've been in; very large and spacious sites and the owners are extremely helpful, friendly and considerate. The lack of pool, restrooms, Wi-Fi and cable is not what entices us to stay in a park - we don't use any of them. The only ding and why the "9" is due to moderate road noise and facing the road - other than that; we love it here, would definitely stay here again and would highly recommend it to friends we know that have the same interests in what makes them happy in a park.
Office was closed when we arrived and fortunately were greeted by one of the residents as the camp host wasn't here either. Un-level sites on gravel, they were pull-through - however, requested 50 amp, and none were available despite the park being relatively empty. Found out only sites along the outskirts of the park were 50 amp and the one next to us (that was a 50 amp site) had the camp host's pontoon boat parked in the spot. We did get compensated for taking the 30 amp site. Does have a picnic table and fire pit at each site. Not very well-run and probably more for ATV'ers as advertised. Was a good location to see the Iron Range and surrounding area. Wouldn't stay here again.
All the comments above were right on the mark. Excellent Wi-Fi as well, very spacious sites, very friendly folks in the office. Our rate was based on staying here a month and then, no state tax is charged and a better rate - only reason for the 9 vs. a 10 are the roads in the park - very bumpy, gravel and rutted. Realize they had experienced some rains lately, but if paved, this would eliminate that problem. We would DEFINITELY stay here again - great access to the biking paths and a very well maintained park too.
Concur with what the previous write-up stated. However, we were one of the ones that got the tree next to our coach that totally blocked our ability to get satellite reception while here. Plus the site was on a slope and hard to level on the gravel. Office staff very accommodating and nice and friendly to my request to move to another site after the weekend. The problem with allowing individuals to chose their sites obviously precludes moving around because one site is taken for a weekend only and we were here for two weeks, so would have had to move back and forth: no way! However, would add, local stations came in exceptionally well. Wi-Fi reception was great. Would definitely stay here again as it is in a wonderful location. So much to see and do around the area within a short distance away.
Sites were gravelly-mud, cement slab outside front door that helped somewhat when it stopped raining. Dusty roads in the park and lots of live-ins in the back part of the park. Asked if we could move to another empty slot because our site was next to a family with motor scooters and noticed the park was more empty than full. Were told we couldn't be accommodated because the park was filled up in the next few days. Asked if maybe some could be shuffled around and told no. We never had neighbors on the other side the whole time, and all we requested was the space so our eating area was not where the scooters would be cranked up all the time. Park seemed nicely maintained otherwise.
Our rate was lower due to using KOA rewards points and only staying in a w/e site. Extremely nice and friendly office personnel. Got a nice, large pull-through due to it being slow during the week, but site was level and spacious. Would definitely stay here again.
Second time we stayed here. Great location for so many national parks/monuments and a host of other attractions and well located on the base near all the amenities (BX/Commissary/Fitness Ctr/gas station). Rate is less if your stay is over a week with one night free. Well maintained, good camp hosts, concrete slabs, not really close to your neighbor even if the camp is full. Definitely would stay here again in the future - wish they would accept reservations though.
Very nice city park located on the east end of town. A bit tricky to turn right into when towing and in a 40' coach, but manageable after we swung way out into the road to make the turn. Beautifully maintained, electric only, but definitely suited our needs for one day while passing through heading northward. Donated $$ to the city by mailing it to the city when we left. Would definitely stay here again.
Easy to find, located in a nice City Park complete with lake, fishing access, nice picnic area and even some local history. There are five back-in sites as others have indicated. It's hard to open the water value without the use of a tool to pry open. Other than that, no frills: but a great, quiet rest stop for an over night visit. Would definitely stay here again. Think the fee is a bit excessive for the area, the former $10 fee was more in keeping with this city park. Can tell no one has paid much attention to cleaning up the area for quite some time.
Would have rated this park higher, but the premier site we were in was being renovated and was all muddy our entire stay. Very friendly staff and most helpful. Liked the location and used as a base for exploring McDonald Observatory, Ft. Davis, Big Bend and Marfa. Cute little town. Felt the rate very high, even with Good Sam Discount for this time of year and would have been higher if the upgrades had been completed. Would stay here again, but definitely NOT in one of their premium sites, not worth the extra bucks.
Very nice park. Hard stand and as others have written, nice long sites so one could park their POV in front or behind one's coach. Nicely maintained, spacious sites with fences between each. Our Verizon card works just fine and what I am using to post this. GREAT cable TV selections and even though no WiFi, would definitely stay here again and recommend to others. Location on base is good and yes, one can hear the planes, but knew that coming here with it being a training base.
Drive, wide, drive through sites and each of the eight sites have a covered cabana over the cement picnic table and grill. Sites are level, far removed from the base and magnificent views of the Organ Mountain Range in our front window. Used our own Wi-Fi broadband and satellite and both came in very well. There are also four overflow sites with electric only adjacent to the park. For the price, this park can't be beat - rather isolated and long drives to get to "civilization" - but that's just what we wanted. Definitely would stay here again.
Definitely as advertised. A no-frills park with no amenities at all, to include picnic tables at the sites. BUT, the sites were large pull through, perfect stopping point to be at Camping World for our early morning appointment. Our broadband and satellite came in perfectly and the view of the mountains was very pleasant. Far enough away from the interstate so as to not hear any traffic and the sites were level and hard packed with minimal dust.
Extremely friendly camp hosts that went out of their way to offer information about the local area that proved very beneficial in seeing the sites. Very accommodating to let us move to another site to be on the end in the last row and had gorgeous views of some magnificent sunsets. Nice large pull thru sites in the back row, never used the Wi-Fi to know how it worked, but all other utilities worked well. Only complaint for this park would be the gravel and continual dust from the winds. Smaller, hard pack would be better, but the site was very level. Would stay here again and recommend to others.
Oh Dear! We had been told we would probably be in over-flow and the price listed above was for that sort of spot. The very nice woman operating the park showed us to our site, we are in a 40' rig, we were going to have to back in parallel to two trailers, then turn and be perpendicular to them in the middle of a very rough, uneven field and then piggyback on to the others utilities - we then checked out the "other" overflow area - out near some pavilions, some water available, again only if one backed up over VERY bumpy ground to get to it - it didn't take much reconsideration for us to decide to get back on the road and move on, even dry-docking in a rest stop was better than this park's offerings. Would not recommend at all.
Military ID card required for stay and access on the base. Nice, out of the way location near the back side of the base near a lake with boat access. Well maintained and new sites were being added to the park while we were there. Nice large pull through and back in spaces. We have stayed here twice and will continue to do so whenever coming through this way. Nice facilities on the base as well.
The rate cited was with a military (retired) discount. Beautifully maintained park, easy access to I-10, large pull-through spaces, lots of extras with all the amenities, pretty view from our front window to the Lake. This place is a definite repeat whenever coming through on this route.
Only available to military and retirees. Well run park, clean, nice hard stands, lots of room and no crowding to your neighbors. Base has all facilities on post. Located near the back side of the post, so nice and quiet. Great rates for a metro area. Would definitely recommend and would definitely stay here again whenever in the area.
Nice long sites, could be shared if crowded, but we had a 90' site our entire stay. Wi-Fi worked and iffy cable, with only 8 channels on a good day. Would have given a much higher rating if it weren't for the horrible entrance to the park - large potholes and ruts. Mentioned to the office staff and was told it was a problem with the city, not them!!!! The sites are gravel and took some work to level the coach, but is indeed level. Very friendly and helpful office staff and lead everyone to their sites and available for information about the local area. Would recommend to others and would definitely stay here again if in the area.
Well maintained and well run. Price absolutely the best in town. Located near the hospital and near all the amenities available on the base. Large sites, nice facilities, Wi-Fi worked, staff worked with us to get a north facing site so didn't have sun in the coach all day long, just over us. Beautiful landscaping and we would definitely stay here again, and would recommend it to others. A great deal.
Tremendously helpful and friendly owners at the Park. Knowledgeable about the area and offer wonderful recommendations of things to see nearby that one might not know about otherwise. Wi-Fi works, satellite comes in, good location to see the nearby parks and monuments, nice and clean, well kept and manicured grounds, level sites and definitely a good price with various discounts available depending on length of stay. Would not only recommend this place, but would stay here again if back in the area.
The view from our front window was beautiful and that's where the positive compliments would end. We were in an unlevel spot, open sewers on our spot and the one next to us so the flies were miserable, un-mowed grass, the picnic table was right over the sewer so never were able to sit outside and the spots were so close to one another that who would want to when one occupied the site next to ours. Office staff friendly enough, overpriced small "grocery" store in park office. But $35 a night for this park was entirely too much for a 20-year old park that looked like one and is in desperate need of upgrades, leveling, sewer repair to name a few. A shame because the location is great, but would not recommend this to others, nor would we stay here again. For $35/night, lots of improvements need to be made in this park.
Very nice campground with lots of shade trees, which then eliminated our ability to get satellite reception, but they had a very extensive cable hook-up. We were in a pull-in, back-out. When we left, we had to physically move a picnic table for our 40' coach to jockey back and forth out and trees were also at the end of each site which made harder maneuverability as well. The pull-in sites were approx. 20' from the road and so there was constant road noise all the time. Would stay here again, but would request NOT to be on the row with the pull-in, back out, we were the only coach in this row the entire time, so obviously this was known to others.
Very pleased with this park. Great site (#1) a back-in, a bit of shade, end site, great view of the sandstone mountains in front of us. Location was great being off US 191, south of town, near all the attractions (went to National Bridge, Needles at Canyonlands, Needles Overlook, Arches, Island in the Sky at Canyonlands and even drove over to see Goblin Valley State Park). Would definitely stay here again if we came back to this area. Office personnel was extremely friendly, helpful and very nice. Good grassy sites and well maintained park.
Rate is normally $16/night, but stay a month and the rate decreases. Great location, near to downtown and medical faciities, and nice, large sites on cement. Grounds needed more work, grass allowed to grow entirely too long, asked office if we could take care of our site and were told we couldn't. Office staff though was very nice and worked with you on site choices. Definitely would stay here again, big rig friendly and can't beat the price.
Military park, so ID card is required. Full hook-up sites located up on the hill overlooking the dam and the lake with some beautiful views. Nice awning covers over the picnic/grill cement patio. Good access to the lake and boat rentals. Quiet and definitely off the beaten path. Has large gravel sites. Office staff was efficient. Would stay here again and would recommend to others to come and stay here.
A nice state park, but unless you hold a state park pass, an additional $8 per day charge was imposed even though nothing was used in the park other than the hook-ups, and we paid for those as well. VERY wooded, but nice, large spacious sites; were assigned one we could not get our large rig into, but found another one close by to accommodate us. Saw lots of wildlife which was fun from the safety of our rig. There is no satellite reception and iffy WiFi with our broadband. Trees need trimming and we had to zigzag down the roads so as not to harm the satellite dish on top. Bison are NOT at the park as advertised in their literature. The office staff was nice enough, not too efficient, but their new computer system probably accounted for that. Would stay again, but would ensure having a TX State Park pass.
As stated, for military or retirees only or acceptable ID card. Beautifully located, near south gate. Good directions for big rigs to enter post from office personnel located near BX/commissary. Well maintained, on concrete slab, sewer on same side as are picnic tables, but noise isn't bad because we are running AC. Don't know about being so close to a neighbor in cooler months. Love seeing the Great Salt Lake from our front window. Would definitely stay here again and would recommend to fellow military retirees. Perfect hop-off spot to many area attractions and I-15 and I-80.
Good location on the base, great views of the mountains and got an end site, so only a neighbor on one side, on the newer side of the park with gravel sites and gravel roads and no trees - quite dusty and very windy which of course couldn't be helped by the park. Large and spacious sites and new hook-ups. Near three gates for exit to various sights. Would recommend for big rigs and also to fellow military travelers. Near airport, but never really heard any air traffic noise.
Very tight spots, hard to back into due to poles and plant fixtures, dirt spots and extremely dusty - constantly cleaning off the dust in the coach. Very narrow roads to maneuver through the park, office personnel very nice and nice enough camp store with the usual high prices. Would not recommend to others with big rigs nor would we stay here again. Didn't use cable and used our own Wi-Fi connectivity so cannot comment on those features if even available.
Beautiful park, well maintained and run. Excellent office staff (as well as park store), led to the site by a VERY experienced gentleman, directed us into the site. Nice large concrete slabs, very nice picnic tables and setting, trash pick up every morning in front of coach. Only stayed two days, but will return to this park each and every time we pass through this area of Texas.
We were lucky to get an end-site furthest away from I-10 and it was still very noisy. Needs some upkeep on low-lying trees along the streets to sites. Satellite was iffy as a result of these low branches. Office staff was friendly enough, got here after closing, so no map left to show us where our site was, just the number. That was not fun after driving all day. Stayed 3 days and visited local sites. Would stay again due to proximity to the interstate and fast "get-away".
Very efficient and friendly office. Due to our three week stay, we were placed in one of the loveliest spots in the park, #200, on the end, shaded (but prevented satellite reception), pancake breakfast, wagon rides, duck races, ice cream socials, pies nightly, movies: many amenities. Great location to town and again, office workers and the owner were absolutely wonderful and so helpful.
Talk about totally misrepresentation. This park's pictures made it look glorious; it was anything but that. Grass not mowed so we couldn't even find the hook-ups without having to swing our arms to find it. Too many scuzzy looking trailers parked throughout - never saw any tennis courts as advertised, bathrooms were trailers with a male/female entry on either side. Did not feel comfortable leaving the park to visit friends in the area for fear of having things stolen. Left the next morning to another place and couldn't get away fast enough.
Good location for visiting the Great Sand Dunes NP. The view from our RV was wonderful of the mountain range and office folks were friendly; however, the staff working outside the office were extremely rude. When filling our propane, asked if anyone was inside. We replied "our cat" and were told, "I don't care about the cat." Didn't see that as a necessary response. Dusty roads and it would be nicer if it was paved or more gravel applied to prevent all the dust when anyone drove by the site.
Very noisy park, but probably not something the park could control because of its location near a public street, near the back of the park. Staff was moderately friendly. Location was good to the local attractions. However, staff came by while we were gone, moved our grill and didn't return it to where we had it next to the picnic table, with no explanation at all. Had an end-site and that was nice.
A wonderful camp host who was filled with great recommendations of things to see and do around the local area to include some wonderful recommendations for dining as well. Nice, large and spacious sites, level, not a lot of trees to impede our satellite reception. We will stay here every time we come back through this area.
Nice and friendly office workers. However, sites are extremely tight. Larger rigs have to jockey into the sites, and several had to drive around several times to get into position thus leaving their attached vehicles out in the road or in others' sites. If we sat outside at the picnic table, could reach the neighbor's RV. Very noisy, grass cut in the park before 0800.
