We pulled off the interstate, saw the park, and thought, "uh oh, this is going to be bad and loud." Turns out: it was both quite good and noise wasn't an issue at all. As mentioned previously, they do have a large wall and the property is set below the freeway: so I can sit here with my windows open and literally not hear the freeway. Kind of amazing, really. We hit the pool and jacuzzi and will move along tomorrow. Doubt you would want to vacation here for a long time, but it's more than adequate for the pass through or a few nights. We had no problems.
We've traveled for one year and haven't found friendlier owners. Most sites are long pull thrus and access to Bozeman is great. We bike into town most days. Gravel and grass are in good shape. Free DVD movie rentals at check-in. The roads and pads could use an upgrade to asphalt and there is some freeway noise, but the friendly owners, access to town, nice trees and shade, and overall quality of the park make it a repeat stay for us.
An overnighter, for sure. The ambience was nothing, really. But, full hook-ups, adequate size sites, paved roads, and a friendly staff make it just fine for what it is. Elk City is just down the street and I-40 (and some noise) are due south.
We stopped over for one night and were pleased with the campground. Some sites weren't so level, so be sure to select in advance. Ours was a nice, level, paved pad with mature pines to either side. Hosts were friendly and access to I-40 was good. A nice, quiet night. We didn't have any time to explore the larger Burns Park, but golf course and biking trails looked inviting.
Great park. We only stayed one night but would have stayed more if time allowed. Very well manicured gravel sites with healthy grass between. Picnic tables at each site. The riverfront sites are more expensive but probably worth the few extra dollars when the stream is flowing and making nice noise. Easy access to I-40 but no freeway noise to speak of. Great access to east side of Smokies -- go see the elk! We'd return in a heartbeat.
Nice enough park with great lobby and tons of tourist information, flyers, etc. Most sites were adequate-sized pull thrus. Everything is basically gravel but I'm learning that most of Santa Fe is dirt or gravel, so... We didn't realize how far south of town the park is and wish we were closer. Still, a good park and nice staff.
We loved this State Park. It's about twenty minutes from Savannah but access is easy via the Truman Parkway. The park itself is large and diverse. There are several great trails with good bird watching inside the park's inlet and also a few miles away at the wildlife sanctuary. Road were all paved, sites were manicured with pea gravel and nice tables and fire pits. The education center was great and all staff were friendly. There were at least three excellent playgrounds for kids and showers were very clean. We'd come back in a heartbeat. Dump station gets a bit crowded so it's better to leave before check out time or just keep an eye for opening.
Excellent park with paved interior roads and gravel pads. Pads were level and well spaced. The county park itself is a gem with biking trails, multiple grassy areas, and much for kids to do. Great access to Charleston -- maybe less than 10 minutes away to downtown and easy access via roads. Watch out for Oak branches along frontage roads, though! The only gripe was the price -- $44 before Good Sam discount. Granted it's a nice park, but that was steep for our taste.
Wonderful park near the beach (though not as close or scenic as Hunting Island). New paved roads are excellent and almost all pads are very level and most are large enough to handle any size rig. There are a few nice boardwalks to walk, a hiking trail, and a great little education center with turtles, baby alligators, etc. The beach is a few hundred feet off from the sites and through a hammock. The Huntington beach "house" ruins are interesting and worth the $1 separate fee. Great campground store and the four dump stations were immaculate.
It's hard to beat camping next to the ocean, especially when it's truly next to the ocean. We stayed in spot 47, literally less than 50 feet from the beach. The view was spectacular. We walked the beach down to the lighthouse, took photos of pelicans and other birds, and hiked the trails within the park. It's a wonderful park. You have to use the dump station and some of the sites near the ocean are less than level but it's well worth it for the location. Be sure to check into alternate truck route through Beaufort before heading in -- downtown Beaufort has a size and weight limit over an older bridge. Alt route takes you a few miles south and over newer bridge.
A very nice setting with slightly terraced sites giving nearly everybody something of a view and feeling of privacy. Sites were big and included table and fire ring. A river runs through the lower part of the park but we like the upper, more sloped section. There are tent sites but they were unoccupied while we were here in 15 degree weather! My only gripe was the lack of paved roads and pads. This place would be a 10 with some pavement. Boone is 10 minutes away.
We were here for some service and loved being able to stay at the park directly behind the service and sales center. The park was nothing special but had full hook-ups (30 amps). The staff at Plemmons was extremely friendly and easy to work with. They made time for our service and even moved the RV out of and back into our spot while servicing, all while we visited Raleigh and Chapel Hill. More pavement would be nice but we had a good stay.
The RV park is about a mile from the entrance to Mt Rainier Park. It has multiple cabins and RV sites surrounding the cabins. It has the feel of a campground with dirt sites, fire rings, lots of shade and even resident deer. Don't let the narrow entry bridge worry you -- the sites are plenty big and easy to maneuver. The owners were onsite managing and very friendly. We stayed four nights and went into Rainier Park every day. It's the closest RV park to the Park and provides great access to the Paradise Inn area. We loved it and would come back.
We stayed only one night as we moved through Atlanta. The park is beautiful, the sites are immaculate with defined borders and lots of pea gravel. The pull thru's were large and easy to maneuver in and out. Excellent tables and utilities. We didn't use the dump station. I wish we had more time to spend several days in the park. Forget the urban parks in Atlanta and stay here if you can. Fantastic.
Nice park with a large asterisk. The location is quiet and away from traffic, etc. It was so because it was on the side of a hill. It's the steepest RV park I've ever seen. Nice management directed us to our site with their golf cart -- and I can see why. The driveways were horribly steep and flat out scary. I could feel the weight of the RV bear down on the front wheels and suspension as I nearly scraped the nose coming down the driveway. Once in the site, everything was fine. Good hookups, 50 amp, friendly staff, nice trees. Just don't be afraid to take your rig on some steep hills.
The park is a mix of mobile homes and RV sites. It's relatively clean with paved streets. The RV sites are TIGHT. Utilities are on shared posts, so the backs of the RV's face each other and are literally inches apart in some instances (when both neighbors have slides). They are the tightest spots we've ever seen. We thought Leavenworth, WA was tight. Sewer hookups in our spot consisted of a side-entry, rusted out, now useless-threaded port. So, the sewer release is an adventure. We only had 30 amp but I think that 50 amp is available in some spots. We wouldn't return.
