When we plugged in our Class A we got an error code of "reversed polarity" and therefore couldn't use their electric. We spent the evening on the generator which we hated to do since we were mere feet from the buildings of an extended care facility. We did not hook up the sewer or use any part of the facility. We merely parked as you would in a WalMart parking lot. When we reported the problem the next morning, the lady at the desk went off on my husband. She dissolved into a long diatribe about "us people in big rigs wanting something for nothing." Bottom line - the wiring is screwed up and will potentially damage your rig and/or appliances if you take the chance of staying here...even just overnight. I am reporting this as a service to other "big riggers".
We first stayed in this park in 2008 and have watched it go downhill ever since. What a pity because finding a decent place to park a motorhome in the Dallas area is like finding the proverbial needle. As of 1/1/12, this place has no working restrooms or showers, has garbage and debris at every site, has enormous potholes everywhere, and attendants who don't attend to a darn thing. It also seems to be leaning toward permanent "guests". Will stay here again only since there are no other options. Sure wish somebody would open a new, nice RV park in the area.
The nightly rate is for a 2 month stay. (Jan & Feb) Electric is extra. It would be hard to find fault with this place. We stayed in the north end and used that pool but there are 3 total all clean as a whistle. We wished we had a dog when we saw the dog area complete with its own lake. Activities are excellent. Nice little gym. Friendly residents. Big shuffleboard community and great shuffleboard courts. Nice rock shop. Good lunches for purchase at the rec. hall. Very close drive to Mexico and dentists there. Only drawback is that it is in Mercedes. Nothing to do once off the park property. Oh well!
Don't let them tell you that you only get one free hour of internet. All you have to do is go back and ask for more "coupons" and you can get back on after the first hour. Also, don't wash the vehicle here if you need fuel. A rig wash is free with fill up right down the road. Other than these things, it's ok.
Very small nice park in great location to ocean. Absolutely best place to see bald eagles. They are in abundance on the beach and in the air. Great for taking photos. Moose too. Owners are very nice. Free firewood. Only thing it doesn't have is cable TV. Good restaurant down the street called Blue Bus Cafe.
This is the third Arkansas state park we've camped at in the last month and it is, without question, the best. Lots to do and see. Fine old lodge built by the CCC in the 30's. Many wonderful paths, caves, rocks, and vistas to enjoy. Just a walk through the campground(s) was great. Lake was very low (and waterfall non existent) due to lack of rain. But shop before you go up the mountain as it is 30 miles round trip to the nearest store. Lots of stuff about the place to like. However, the reservations department needs a complete overhaul. It was comical to watch campers have to move one space to make room for a new camper coming in and then wait for someone else to move so they could park again. And not all of the sites are level. So if you get a good one you would like to stay there. Camper's inconvenience is ignored. But if needless moving doesn't bother you, it's a great place.
Stayed in the recently remodeled section which is lovely and flat. All amenities. Could throw a rock in the river from your patio area. Huge sites. Quick walk to the spring. Lots of fishermen. Very pretty although dry this year. Would recommend to anyone.
This campground has been remodeled and is outstanding. Great big comfortable sites with 50 amp and all amenities. We stayed 6 nights and could have stayed much longer. The watershed lake was very, very low due to lack of rain but would highly recommend to anyone in the area.
Had intended to stay one night but stayed 3 due to the wonderful location. Near all distilleries and easy on and off the highway. Neat, clean, paved. Nothing bad to say except trees are sparse so no shade. Stores and restaurants of all descriptions were very close.
In an effort of accuracy I must say that the "Don't Know" under clean restroom and shower is because there are none! This park is mostly park models (nice ones) but the site we got was large and well spaced and all cement, full hook up with 50 amp., very comfortable. There are large open grassy areas and no feeling whatsoever of being closed in. This park has a whole lot going for it, and we would consider buying here if not for the fact that there is no pool and no clubhouse. I cannot imagine why not since there's so much room. But since there is nowhere to go and nothing to do it seems that people parade every night in their golf carts. There are hundreds of them. Fun to watch. We liked the place and would recommend it.
Just a little ole motel with parking behind it: but with good blacktop, is quiet, very clean and an excellent location. Doubt if you could do much better. Close to Carousel Museum, Erie Canal, wine trail, the Falls and great food and shopping. Owner on premises is very nice guy. Only thing is the price, but you are near the Falls so what're gonna do?
Unlike a lot of places, the photo's on their website accurately represent what you get. A few things to do in the area. Shopping nearby. No real issues except price, and if you want to see any view you are parking in a grass field. Their 30 amp service wouldn't run our air conditioner.
Quiet old fashioned campground with mature trees and lots of grass. Boulders the size of an elephant's back are sprinkled throughout where the glaciers left them. Small clean pool which was too cold to use. Every kind of store you can imagine is within 5 miles. Good place to kick back and unwind.
Stayed during the Memorial Day weekend so the rate was higher. Campground was packed and so was the pool. Don't know what it would be like normally, but it seems to be a very popular place for locals. Nothing wrong with it, if you want an actual campground and place for children to feel welcome. Good location for accessing the Metro to D.C. (which isn't cheap but it sure makes it easier). No shopping nearby. Must go at least 5 miles for groceries.
This place is nice enough. But after 3 or 4 days of the many, many speed bumps I was ready to move on. I'd really begun to dread going in or out of the place when having to deal with the bumps. They are excessive and irritating. Location is good for sight seeing, but the traffic around the campground is horrendous and it's hard to turn out onto the main road most of the time. The pool looks fine but sits about 30 yards from the main highway. Not only would you be stared at by passing motorists but the noise would be incredible. Consequently no one ever used it. Walgreens, Publix and Waffle House are within walking distance. If not for the bumps I would have given this place a higher rating.
As full time RV'ers, we often wonder why the owners of smaller camping facilities don't make an effort to be friendly and nice to new comers. We didn't have to wonder here. This couple know what they're doing. The place is neat and clean and pretty. Effort has been made to plant flowers and trees while the park is still being added to. There are chickens scratching in the dirt and a nice ole dog laying around. There's a little pond to sit by and think. It's quiet and easy living. Great for a rest after some traveling. The owner came down and invited us to play cards. We loved it there. Easy in and out.
We just happened upon this campground after leaving the Everglades. It was so nice we stayed two weeks. Sites are large and fully equipped with the best sewer arrangement we've ever had. Campground is spacious with old moss draped trees. The spring is within walking or biking distance (there's a parking lot too) and is free to campers. We swam in it nearly every day. There's good shopping within walking distance or a Wal-Mart 16 miles north. There's canoe or boat rental. It's just a great find. We'd go back in a heart beat if in the area. We did have to get out the dish for TV.
The reviewer who said you could walk here from town was clearly talking about some other place. You can't walk to anything from here. There is nothing to do in this town and nothing to do in this park. The activities are so lame there is no reason to bother. If you absolutely must stay in Ft. Pierce this is the only decent place we found and it is nice. Just very dull.
Sites are huge. No hook ups though so stayed only a week. Very comfortable. Easy access to activities in park and there are lots of them. Wish we could have stayed longer. Had to get out the dish for TV and no web or telephone. About 13 miles into town for shopping. Want to see gators up close and personal? Don't worry. They're not in the campground.
Place is small and gravel is the size of golf balls. However, very clean and the management is nice. Man made beach area on the gulf side but no access to water. Good place to stay if you're pulling a boat. Activities at the little clubhouse were well attended. Pool was little but nice. Location is fine. Very close to Curry Hammock and about 1-1/2 hrs. to Key West. Plenty of shopping within 10 miles.
Nearly brand new and looks it. Very clean. Although right on the highway it is not a bit noisy. Real nice place with nice owners. Looks like there is a corral out back of the office for those of you with horses. Too expensive for us but about the same as every other place around there. Easy drive to White Sands.
A happy place to be. Lots of activities - something going on all the time. Good areas to walk and bike ride all around the little lake. The mission of this "campground" is to build houses for the poor in Mexico and to achieve that end, residents donate items for auction and raise the money themselves. They just completed their 14th house! There's a woodshop, clubhouse with breakfast and some lunches and tons of games going on at all times (or line dancing, quilting, swedish weaving - you name it) a pool shaped like the state of Texas, and a little island in the middle of the lake to walk out to for some meditative time. Lots of birding. A flock of parrots just flew over. Wal-Mart is very close as is a large flea market on the weekends. Good place to spend a few months. Laid back - nothing hoity toidy - just good honest working folk. No complaints thus far.
I was just checking out places we stayed in '08 and am astonished to see less than great comments about this park. We stayed here for 4 weeks. and loved it. The location is phenomenal for Salt Lake and Provo and there is plenty to do in both towns. Great to shopping too. The bike path that starts nearly at your campsite is very long and very beautiful as it winds its way along the river. You can't see Utah Lake from your RV but you can bike or walk to it and can swim from the nice beach. It is beautiful to look at. The wildlife is spectacular all around the area. Only drawback I can think of is that there is no sewer. However, I would go back in a heartbeat. Loved this place. In the spring and early summer it must be fabulous.
We're here now and there's lots of room. Will stay here about a mo. so had to buy a "blue wagon". Your choices in the Dallas area are so very limited that you might as well buy one too and get on down here. Great place to stay in that it is roomy and clean and close to everything - shopping, food, etc. Cannot beat the price with the "old folks discount". Great cell and Wi-Fi connectivity. No doubt really beautiful beside the lake in the spring and summer. Right now? Too cold to go out there. Really wishing we were in Florida but not cause this place is bad.
Beautiful park and lake. Sites positively enormous. Nice swimming beach in the right weather. Easy in and out. Could only stay one night cause they were closing for the year. Lots of wildlife. Would happily come back for a week or two.
We had to be pretty motivated to locate this park but once in, we were glad to be there. Quiet, clean, super laundry. Easy drive to Graceland and Bealle St. Tables and fire rings. Nice play area for children if you've got them. Fall leaves were wonderful. Lovely walks. Will return if in the area.
Nice city park with great location on the Tennessee river. Quiet. Easy in and out. Nice folks. Often used by locals. No shade in area for big rigs so would be hot in summer without your own canopy. Table, grill but no fire ring. Great view of water traffic and you can take an hour and 1/2 tour with lunch on a paddlewheeler down the river for $20.00. Will stay again when in area.
One of the few state parks that accept the national parks card. Sweet park about 13 miles from the Quarter. Clean and neat with lots of space between spots. Apparently there is a wave pool open in the summer. Security although it is unneeded. In a wetlands so good walking and wildlife. Cannot be beaten for access to Nawlin's.
OK park if passing through. Some like it for wintering. Sites big enough but with lots of road noise if in the back. Nothing to look at what so ever. You pay extra for electric. Wasn't my cup of tea but nothing wrong with it.
If you are a fan of Miss Lynn's you cannot miss staying here. It's as if you are an invited guest! The whole extended family works here or near here and you can meet them as well as see the museum, mansion, old cabin from Butcher Hollow and maybe run in to Loretta herself. The park is beautiful and well maintained although slightly difficult to get into. Doolittle built the park himself when they weren't quite so big! One of Loretta's old tour buses is already there though and you can rent it for the night if you choose. It's expensive but don't hesitate if you are in the area. It was an experience I will remember for years to come. Loved every minute!
Gorgeous little hidden gem of a park. Positively enormous sites. Back right up to the water. Lots of wildlife. Spotted deer herd, listened to coyotes, owls, armadillos, herons, ducks. Sat under the Milky Way. Took a long walk in the rustling fall leaves. Wonderful place. Will return.
A couple of wonderful hosts here, and we had a lovely stay at this park. Small, quiet and right in the heart of Cajun country. Easy access. The seafood restaurant close enough to walk to is Shucks and the oysters and crab cakes are the best we've had in years. The meat market, Richards, you can walk to from Shucks. Try their boudin and boudin balls. Marvelous. Tour the nearby Tabasco factory and gardens. Shop in Layfatte and enjoy the friendly culture. Will return.
