This is a bad experience. We had a confirmation number for our RESERVATION. Got to the rv park in plenty of time (1 hour before check-in time), but NO spot for us for the night. Somehow the reservation department OVERBOOKED their "8" spots. They were all full. It was like a Seinfeld episode. They know how to "TAKE" the reservation, they just don't know how to "HOLD" the reservation. The "HOLDING" of the reservation is the important part of the reservation itself. The hotel did give me a hotel room for free for the night, but that meant we had to deal with our pet and, clothes, food. Shame on them.
This campground is located close to the FQ, but it is still a few blocks away. I would NOT recommend walking at night back to the RV park from the FQ. A cab ride is about $7. The campground folks will bring you as close to the FQ as they can in their golf cart, but even when they do, you still have 2 busy streets to cross with no crosswalks to get to the FQ. The sites in the rear of this park should be nearly free. I say this because if you get a site in the rear you will likely not be able to sleep at all. The freeway noise is so loud, it will drown out the noiseist a/c unit avaiable. And the ambulances run constantly ... and the 18 wheelers driving on the overpass will literally "shake" your motorhome. The rear sites are awful period. The rate is too high for what you get here. The cinderblock wall with RAZOR EDGE will give you a sense of protection, but also an idea of what you're dealing with in the neighborhood by this RV park!
This was the 2nd time we have stayed at this RV park. Very well maintainted campground, very clean. Friendly staff, pool was well maintained when we were there. The only problems were: 1. Very noisy road traffic. Even with the Motorhome A/C blower on high, the outside road traffic is loud at night. 2. The entrance speedbump has the potential to cause your vehicle to drag bottom. You can see on the speed bump where other cars have scraped bottom. The best idea is to NOT exit out the front gates. Exit out of the rear gates instead.
This park is the closest to the Riverwalk area, but is definitely not "walking distance" to the Riverwalk area. We had to drive to the Rivercenter Mall because I didn't want to ride the city bus to the downtown area which is about 3 miles away. The sites were nice and level, but seemed like the yard folks cut grass and run weedeaters around your rig every day. The Wi-Fi is NOT included in the daily rate, but the signal appeared strong.
This is a good campground if you want to either gamble or play golf. Other than that, there is zero to do in Kinder except slap at mosquitoes. There were so many mosquitoes at nightfall that it was quite frankly scary. The WiFi at this campground was unusable. We could barely get an signal, and then it too weak to use.
This is our second visit. Gulf access is good. Sites are so close together that my awning and slide were only inches away. You've never camped closer to anyone anywhere than here, I can guarantee that. The electricity was flaky. The entire row kept tripping the main breaker. Management was working to have it repaired. It was very difficult (in fact dangerous) to get out of the campground onto the highway. The speed limit in the campground is 4.1/2 MPH for safety. The problem with 4.1/2 MPH is that all the bicycles and scooters travel faster than that, so the bicycles are passing up the cars and RVs making the situation actually more dangerous!
This is a nice campground with easy access to the town of Fredericksburg. It is not walking distance to the town though. My site was basically level, but not paved. The staff was very helpful. My only complaint is that it is next to a major intersection of Hwy 290 and another highway in which made for a great deal of road noise. It was not just cars and trucks making the road noise a problem. It was the loud (very loud) motorcycles cruising around. Nothing on the road is louder than a Harley. At nightime however, it was quieter as much of the bikers were down for the night.
This campground is leaning toward the backwoods type camping. It was quiet when we were there, and it was comfortable. The sites are not paved. I was not dry or wet when we were there so it work out fine staying there. We were only staying there for 1 night on our way to Florida. I had to be very careful when parking because there are overhead power lines. I nearly raised my antenna onto one of there powerlines.
This was a very clean park. Perfectly maintained. Nice river frontage property. Easy access to the highway. Yes, it has the cleanest restrooms you will ever find. My only complaint is that the owners have an 8 year old kid that rides around on a golf cart, telling people what they can do and not do. The park allows pets on a leash, and my pet was on a leash, and he drives up and starts hassling me about my little dog, telling me that I must keep her on a leash, and pick up her waste. Well, first of all, my little quiet dog was on a leash, secondly we always pick up after her. My point here is that although he is obviously a respectable and responsible 8 year old: no adult wants to be, or should be told by an 8 year old what to do and not to do. Especially that we are not doing anything wrong to begin with. It just rubbed me the wrong way. It was the owners kid, and he appears to be a good kid, but he definitely knows his daddy owns the place. Good park otherwise. Not sure what happens if you just ignore him.
