Strictly bare bones as far as facilities, but we love this park. The location is wonderful when visiting Baton Rouge; it is very close to town, but feels like you are out in the country. The sites are grassy and close together, but the park has never been crowded when we have been there so the campers usually spread out through the park so it doesn't feel cramped. The bathrooms are immaculate and the price is right-on! Also, watching the horses in the adjacent pasture is entertaining!
This is a beautiful park, but over-priced for a municipal park. The "kids" who worked in the office were adequate, but more concerned with their personal dramas than customer service. The park itself is wonderful, though, with beautiful views, lovely walking trails, and lots of wildlife to watch. Check out Rouse's supermarket in town.
Broke my own $25 rule and this rate reflects my AARP discount, otherwise would have been more. However, there is no where else in this area to stay that has hookups and it was hot! The employees at the hotel where we checked in were very courteous even though a deposit must be paid for a key for the water. Also a key card is issued for laundry and showers, both of which were nice and clean. There are lots of permanent residents there; our sewer hookup was right in our neighbor's front yard. Okay for an overnight stay. Walked to the nearby skateboard park for some entertainment! McDonalds right next door, some restaurants at hotel, but we ate at home. I think WiFi was available at one of the restaurants.
A great stop while traveling! We stopped in town and asked directions at the first store. Beautiful grassy area; easy access. We loved this spot and we were the only folks there so we were able to let our dog run free. Did not use the bathrooms, but all the facilities appeared to be immaculate--I know the grounds keeping was! A bargain for $15!
Great facilities and a much-needed break for us after being on the road for several weeks. Laundry and showers are excellent. We are not gamblers, but treated ourselves at the casino buffet which was excellent. Good WiFi at the campground. We relaxed, ate out, did laundry, did our on-line business. Very few campers in campground. A very pleasant stay and a good value. Would definitely stop here again.
Broke my $25 rule again, but again, not much choice of places. Fine for overnight, it is right off the interstate. Level sites, immaculate bathrooms. Never saw an owner or manager. Self-registered rather late and left rather early.
Over-priced, but couldn't do any better in this area. Campground feels like a low-end trailer park. Lots of full-time residents with lots of junk around their trailers. We had to get our neighbor to unhook his extra water hose from our water hook-up, but he was nice about it. Although we arrived before 5:00 pm, office (store) was already closed, and there were no instructions on how to register or pay. We called the phone number on the door and were told to just park in a spot; the store would be open in the morning for us to register before we left. Fortunately, a little girl who seemed to live in a camper near the shower house, gave us the combination to get in the bathroom. Bathrooms were clean and large, but felt like you were in an institution with big heavy metal doors. I would prefer not to stay here again, but there's not a better choice in the area.
When we got here, the other campground was closed due to a scheduled burn going on. So the campground was very crowded; we got the next to last spot about 3:00 pm on a Wednesday afternoon. Consequently, our site was just large enough for us to perch on the side of the road, and we are in a 21' Class C. Would not recommend for bigger rigs, unless you can reserve a more appropriate spot. Registration was at a self-pay booth. One of the hosts was less than helpful; she seemed frazzled by the number of campers looking for spots. However, once we made contact with the host in our area, he was friendly and pointed out the last two available sites to us. Shuttles were not nearly as accessible or self-explanatory as we have seen at other national parks. We much preferred our stay at Zion, but maybe if both campgrounds had been open, we would have had a better stay. Bryce Canyon is beautiful, though! We just drove it ourselves instead of depending on the shuttle. Don't miss it.
Pleasantly surprised by the amount of shade and trees. I was afraid that the only campground with hook-ups in Zion or Bryce would just be a parking lot, but the campground was beautiful. The river that runs through the campground was a wonderful place to cool off and I would highly recommend this area for campers with children. Floating on the river is a great place to relax after touring the park! The shuttle comes to the visitor center within an easy walk of the campground, so there is no need to move your camper once you park. No showers, as is the norm for national parks, but we had no problems with electrical hookups. Attended ranger talk at night and that was very interesting, too. I do recommend that you make reservations, though. The park was full.
Okay just for an overnight sleep. Never saw an owner or employee; we used self-registration located on porch of house. $20 fee reflects amount for our 21' Class C; bigger rigs cost a little more. Wi-fi was good. Lots of permanent residents, but it was hot and nobody was outside when we were there. Shower houses are adequate. Would stay there again as there is nothing anywhere near and I haven't found better deal in Amarillo, either. Sites are level--it is west Texas!
Even though there are no facilities other than full hook-ups, I like this place. (No bathrooms, laundry, etc., I mean) It is right in town, but has the feel of being out in the country. Lots of full-time residents, but the overnight spots are in the back and very accessible. The owner is very friendly. He just pockets the fee, writes you out a receipt on a local map and points you to an open spot. Sites are level and all pull-throughs, I think. BBQ place next door is good, too!
