Rate is for 6 people in a select site. Campland is a zoo, but it grows on you! I generally like my peace & quiet and this isn't the place for that. During the day, there are kids everywhere. They generally have the run of the place and do not expect them to look for vehicles before using the streets as they wish. There is so much to do at this park, kids will never be bored. We've stayed here twice for my son's football tournaments and both years invited the team over for a get-together. Kids run around freely, you're never worried about them, and adults get to relax and spend time together. As crazy as this place is during the day time, quiet hours are strictly enforced and nights are very peaceful. During our recent stay, there was a good band or DJ every night at Central Park. End each day by walking down to the beach and watching Sea World fireworks across Mission Bay. Love this place!

This park is great for a layover with convenient highway access. It is nicer than the nearby KOA and half the price. Sites are wide with mature pine trees, but maybe too short for big rigs. We're 52' with toad hooked up and had enough room to stay hooked up, but I think a 42 footer with a toad will have to unhook for the night. As I write this I'm sitting with my windows open and can barely hear the freeway, so no issue there. Office and bathrooms are currently being remodeled with some very nice tile work and look like they will be very nice when complete. This location is a great first/last stop for our travels and we will certainly stay here again.

I liked this campground very much, but not our site. Park is clean, quiet, and right on the Arkansas River. Bathrooms & laundry room were clean, but had a funky smell (maybe from the water?). Our kids managed to keep themselves entertained here, but we really didn't spend too much time in the park. With all of Colorado that is readily accessible from this location, we spent most of our days elsewhere. But coming home and sleeping to the sound of the river or wasting away a morning fishing right behind my site were real treats. Staff were very friendly & helpful, even loaned me some small tools to fix a problem I had with my toad lights. My only complaint was that our site, number R17, is at a 90 degree angle to the one next to it, R16. That site's sewer & water hookups were literally under our picnic table and a large RV that was backed into the site took up most of the river-front portion of our site. So avoid R17 when you book, but otherwise we'd stay here again in a heartbeat.

Rate includes $9 entry fee to get into the park which I think was waived for campers the last time we stayed here. This is a beautiful park with very convenient access to metro Denver. It's clean, well maintained, has plenty of shade trees and easy in-out pull-through sites. We've only stayed here briefly when we've had other stuff going on in Denver and have not made use of the lake, but that looks like a great feature, too.

This was just an overnight stay for us. Very convenient to the freeway and a nice long pull through site. Park is clean, front desk people are friendly & helpful if not a bit over-zealous about a few rules. But you can tell they care about their park. We'd use this as an overnighter again if we pass through.

An all around great park. Clean and well maintained by very friendly and helpful people. This campground is cut into a mountainside and is heavily wooded. Despite the hills, they have done a nice job getting the sites graded to a 'level-able' finish. If you're unhooking anyway, choose a back-in site. They are on the forest's edge and have the most shade. Our site was quite narrow, however. With my slide extended, the utility box prohibited opening my storage bay. On the other side, I could not fully extend my awning. In its way was a roofed wooden deck with a picnic table. The deck was a very nice surprise and I just extended my awning so the space between the coach and the deck was covered. Combined, it made for a very nice shaded & dry area. The site included a moveable fire ring, but the site really was too small to find a place to use it. We ate a quite-good, but a bit over-priced, breakfast at the on-site café. There are a lot of extra amenities at this campground. Wi-Fi was just OK. We were only minutes away from all of our Branson activities and would definitely stay here again.

Lots of gravel here, but plenty of grass and shade trees as well: a real bonus in the desert. Our site was quiet and had the feeling of privacy even though the park was quite busy. An hour from Roswell, and an hour to Carlsbad Caverns as well, made this a very convenient place for three nights. Office staff was friendly and helpful. There seemed to be a fair number of residents at this park, but there were no issues whatsoever and their sites were well kept. We'd stay here again if the aliens come back!

Really nothing more than a gravel parking lot separated by 8 to 10 foot wide grass strips. Why do places like this put the word resort in their names? Nothing special here, but the park met our needs. Very convenient to the National Military Park & downtown as well as I-20. Some other reviewers mentioned the host. Host is an immigrant, no mistaking that he has an accent. But he seems to be a stand up guy chasing down his version of the American dream. Can't hold that against him. Never-the-less, we'd seek out nicer accommodations were we to pass through again.

To be clear, there is no resort here. Just a run down looking motel and a parking lot in back with some grass (not much) between gravel strips. But the place was fine for the amount of time we spent here. We came for the national park, not the campground. Very convenient to the NP, but I did stow my chairs & grill when we left for the day because we were the front site to the highway and the park has no security or even a choke point for incoming traffic. This place did what we needed it to do. Restrooms were run down and old looking, but clean enough to use. No Verizon 4G out here, but the campground WiFi worked well enough.

Beautifully landscaped and maintained park in close proximity to the city of Austin. Clean, friendly, just a nice place overall. Lots of trees, shrubs and flowers throughout. If we ever roll through Austin again, we'd use this place.

Rate is for a back in on the inlet off of the main canal. Very nice campground, well maintained, clean, but office staff could have been a bit more friendly. Nothing bad, but I did feel like I was bothering the desk help. Convenient to the French Quarter & easy access to freeways. This new park looks like reclaimed land in a mostly industrial zone and they have done a nice job with it. In six minutes from my front door, I was jogging on the shores of Lake Pontchartrain. We'd stay here again for sure.

Rate is for a waterfront site & it was worth it. Twenty feet of pavement between me and the beach. My extended family, who do not have RVs, stayed in cabins as we camped. This was a great place for our family reunion. Clean, well maintained, well run by friendly people. Cabins were nothing fancy, but worked just fine for two families with 4 kids each. The handicapped accessible cabin lacks much in the way of a kitchen, unfortunately. Convenient to Navarre Beach (two miles) and Pensacola Beach & Destin (both about 30 minutes). We were at the very end of the campground and Wi-Fi was weak on Ipods, but good on a laptop. We would definitely stay here again.
