This was our 4th time staying at this campground. It is immaculate! We just stayed overnight this time, so were in a pull through site near the office. It was the end pavement site, so we had a picnic table, grill and our own nice little cactus garden! We didn't need to unhook, as the space was large enough for our 37' fifth wheel and medium duty truck. The office staff was very accommodating, as usual. We purchased propane while here and the staff came and got our bottle, filled it and delivered it back to the trailer. We paid the Passport America rate of $19.00. We always stay at this park while in Benson and will definitely return.
This park is not set up for big rigs. We have a 37 ft. fifthwheel, pulled by a medium duty truck. We had a terrible time trying to get into a site. The first site we tried had a lamp post on one side and a grapefruit tree on the other. The tree was going to scratch the side of the trailer and the concrete base of the lamp post would have taken out the other side of the trailer. The grapefruit tree, on the other side of the road, ripped off our phone antenna on the truck. So, they sent us to another site, which wasn't much better. To not hit the grapefruit tree, we had to put the wheels of the trailer up over the curb, breaking off our mud flap in the process. This park will not accept anything less than 22 ft and, actually, that is about the size of trailer that should be in here! Numerous park models and no separate area for trailers or overnighters. Also, we paid the Passport America rate of $22.50. But, our Passport book stated the nightly rate was $17.00. The checkin person said that we must have an old book because their rates went up $5.00 this year! We just got this Passport book in 2007. We would have left after ripping off our antenna, but we had paid $75.00 for 3 nights and couldn't get our money back. So, big rigs take note! This is not the park for you. We will never stay here again. We just hope that we can get out of this site without doing anymore damage to out trailer or truck.
This park is very neat. The office is immaculate and the manager is very friendly and helpful. We arrived on a Sunday (the office was closed), but I had talked with the manager on Sat. He said to just come in, find a site and register in the office on Monday. There are many beautiful, big Live Oak trees in the park. We walked thru the park and picked out a pull thru site, without trees and an easy pull out for leaving. You will need to really look and be aware of the low limbs on the trees. The park is very near WalMart and right off US 90. It is a Good Sam Park and our rate was $23.00. We would stay here again.
We used Passport America and stayed the maximum of 3 nights. Our site was loaded with small "prickers" mixed in the grass at our site. They stuck to our shoes and, therefore, were tracked into our 5thwheel and truck. Some of the sites had concrete pads, but our site was dirt, some grass and "prickers"! We wondered if we were assigned this site because we were using Passport America. Most of the sites were seasonals with park models, but very neat. The seasonals were very friendly and helpful. The pool was immaculate. Large and very clean laundry room. There was a lot of construction on the highway in front of the park and the exit was closed. Not being familiar with the area, it was difficult getting to the park. There was a lot of traffic noise due to being so close to the highway. We would stay there again, but ask for a site that had a concrete pad.
This is the worse RV park that we have ever visited. Talk about trains, planes and automobiles. Well, this park has it all. Very dumpy. Mowing needs to be done. We were put in a site by a dilapidated old trailer that had been there a long time. Couldn't hookup to water because the hookup was actually missing. As we laid in bed, we could see the Air Force plane's blinking lights through our roof vents, as they flew very low above us. My husband wanted to leave about 2:00 AM, but he was concerned that we would wake everyone with our diesel truck. I don't think that he needed to worry about waking anyone. Nobody could sleep between the planes, trains and trucks on the highway. We will never stay at this park again, plus we advise all of our RVing friends not to stay here either.
Very nice park with new owners. Concrete pads are in the process of being put into every site. Grass is being planted around the sites. The owners are extremely nice; we received a "thank you" note from them just prior to leaving. This is a Passport Park and an Escapee discount park. For all of you SKPs, this park is 200 miles south of Livingston on US-59; a great place to stop on the way to the Valley. And, Harlingen is 200 miles south of Victoria. There is a nice pool and a pond with ducks. Also, there is a nice laundry. Most of the sites are long pull thrus and some backins along the outer edge. They do not have a seasonal rate established as yet, but their monthly rate is $300 and that includes electric. The only negative is the fact that the park is right off US-59 and there is some traffic noise. We definitely will return here if and when we travel to the Valley again.
Great park for overnighters. Long level pull-thru sites. Neat. Manager very nice and friendly. We used our Passport America, opted for 50 amp., and paid $17.00. It would have been $15.00 for 30 amp. Close to I-20 and Love's truck stop, but quiet. Also, free laundry! We will definitely use this park again when we are traveling in this area.
This campground is beautiful. It is about 4 miles up a mountain. The forest road is paved but has many potholes. You must drive slowly, especially if pulling a RV. There is a mountain pond with a small swimming beach. The pond is stocked with fish. You are allowed to use electric motors on boats or a canoe. There are wildlife, such as black bears and moose. The campground has "bear facts" at each campsite. There are flush toilets and pay showers. Also, there are interpretive nature programs every Saturday night from mid June until Labor Day. The tents sites are very nice; some with stairs to the tent platform. Of course, there are fire pits and picnic tables at each site. There are also some handicap sites available. Big rigs would not be able to negotiate the paved roads easily, even though the sites are large. There are designated RV sites and designated tent sites. Very pretty with hardwoods. Quiet. This is a first come - first serve campground, no reservations. The cost is $20 per site for 1 vehicle. Additional vehicles are $5.00 per vehicle.
We have stayed in this campground numerous times. The owners are very friendly and the campground is immaculate. Very clean restrooms. There are picnic tables and fire pits at each site. Many pull thru sites for big rigs. The lawn is neatly mowed and the bushes are trimmed. They do not accept credit cards; cash or checks only. They do give a discount for senior citizens 65 and older. Very quiet. Convenient to Notre Dame University in South Bend. They have two pond, one for fishing and one for swimming. We will stay there every year while visiting our daughter in South Bend.
We stayed here while attending the Feast of the Hunters Moon. The roads were gravel and narrow. We had a pull thru site with a picnic table and fire pit. The grass was not mowed and the sites were extremely close. If we had put our awning out, it would have been covering the deck of the seasonal beside us! There were many seasonals in the park and some of their sites were not well kept. We met family here and just stayed the weekend. It is accessible to big rigs, but the turns are tight. Probably wouldn't stay here again.
Very nice park. The owners were very nice and helpful. We ate dinner and breakfast in their cafe and it was very good. The pull thru sites are adequate. We have a 37' fifthwheel pulled by a MDT and there was plenty of room. Some of the trees need to be trimmed back. We would definitely stay here again.
