We stayed here for a month, and paid $530 for the month. I had to divide this down to get the $19 figure. I don't know what the day rate is. The park is very good. We stayed in a nice tree covered area (row A). The site had it's picnic table and fire rings. Campfires permitted. We had a nice quiet month in the park. The (long term) neighbors were pleasant. This place is definitely a dead-zone for Verizon. I could get a bar, maybe two, and was in and out of 3G and 1X. Amazingly, I got occasional 4GLTE but it was not reliable. Wi-Fi is indeed slow and subject to timeouts, though signal strength is good. The employees we encountered were very pleasant, though we had minimal contact with anybody. We really kept to ourselves. There is a small laundry room, with three washers and three dryers. We didn't try the small kidney shaped swimming pool, as it wasn't really warm enough to encourage swimming. There is train noise. We love trains, but those who don't should be aware of the grade crossing whistle and the rail line noise. Recommended.

We spent four months here on a monthly rate. We liked it so much we signed up for the season in 2012. The front section of the park is where most of the transients, weekenders, and short term stays are. This is close to restrooms, laundry, and pool and within range of the Wi-Fi. I used to come down on a weekday morning, do the laundry and work on my computer in the laundry room while the machines ran. The "back loop" is where the seasonals are. Lots of rigs that never move. We were back in the loop. We asked for full tree cover, since I was concerned that if it got really hot over the summer, I didn't want the trailer A/C to labor. We wound up so far into the trees that my satellite radio stopped working! I loved it. Was like camping on the forest moon of Endor. Owners are polite, helpful and friendly. On the downside, the roads are pretty badly potholed. They tried filling some of the holes back in May, but by August, the place was still like driving in a war-zone. There is indeed an active railroad, but it's off in the distance, and all you hear is the mournful horn as they blow for the crossing in Gansevoort. I thought it added to the charm. We weathered Hurricane Irene very well. There were a few mud puddles on the roads, but no sites or facilities were flooded. We had 30 amp service, water, sewer and free cable TV. We were too far away to get the Wi-Fi reliably. I called Time Warner, and they sold me cable internet for the four months we were there. The park is 8 miles north of I-87, exit 15, where you'll find a mall, groceries, restaurants, fast food, diesel and gas, etc. Even a synagogue! Beyond that is Saratoga, and, during it's season, the race track. If you're not into racing, the August thru Labor-Day racing season tends to fill up campgrounds, restaurants and motels, drive prices up, etc. The park is also 8 miles south of South Glens Falls and we tended to shop and eat in GF during the racing season. Finally, the park is 10 miles from Schuylerville, which will yield several more dining choices. Gansevoort itself has the ubiquitous Stewarts shop, a post office, a flag shop (?!?) and that's about it. We found no restaurants in Gansevoort. (The locals call it Gans-vert.) Lots of things to do here. Racing, of course. Lake George is less than an hour north. There is a cruise on the Hudson River that leaves from Lock Number 5 in Schulerville, though we never managed to take it. Albany is 30 miles south. You could visit the state capital. (Or not.) All in all, we loved it. The area is gorgeous, the park met all our needs, and we'll be back on site 121 next summer.

A mobile home park with 15 RV spaces for transients. Good basic lodging for you and your rig. There are lots of working people, few recreational travelers. Located on a busy street, but set pretty far back. There was little road noise and definite train noise. I felt safe and secure. I was told that there was security at the entrance after 9 PM and I'd need name and site number to enter. I did not test this, as we were not out late any nights. Reasonably priced for El Paso. A great home base to visit the area. Shopping and services close by. Would stay here again. It's part of the Tower Parks chain of mobile home parks with RV spaces.

Previous reviews are pretty accurate. This park is a dirt field that has been graveled. I suspect this would be a mud puddle in the rain. It's rows of pull through sites, separated by logs placed on the ground. Hookups are properly provided at each site. We paid the $16 standard rate for a 30 amp site. Note: this park is CASH ONLY. No checks or credit cards. Would stay here again.

Not much here but the basics, but those basics are provided with grace and style. There are lots of permanent rigs, but enough empty sites to accommodate travelers. Very basic. No picnic tables at sites. One single-person restroom with shower. Immaculate. Very nice host and hostess. There is a laundry room and a library/sitting room in central building with that one restroom. Great for an overnight stop, or even longer, if your intention is to be out in Quartzsite during the season. If we're traveling through again, this would be our first choice. This place doesn't seem to be in Woodalls. I haven't a clue how I found it. I may have just picked it off Google Maps. I'm giving it a 7 rating, not because it has lots of features, but because it does exactly what is needed, with no issues or problems.

This is a large scale park-model community that has empty (usable) RV sites scattered throughout. It's hard to get a count of how many sites are available for travelers. The place is immaculate. It's a 55+ "community" so there are lots of activities for senior citizens. We don't need anything like that, but we're happy to be here in a clean, comfortable site with all working utilities. We were escorted to our site by a man in a golf cart who directed me while I backed in. He did a decent job. The park is dotted with orange trees, but they aren't really "shade" trees. You'll depend on your awning. The Wi-Fi is in the clubhouse. Though it's usable in some close-in sites, it should not be depended on for in-rig use. There is a cable-tv cable, but one needs to be on a long term stay, so you can have the cable company turn it on (at your expense.) We were glad to get a site here, as Mesa/Phoenix in the winter is hard to visit at the spur of the moment.
