Love this place! Second year I've done a one-night stopover. This park deserves MUCH MORE than an one-night sleepover! The amenities are wonderful and the park is super clean. The rate cited does NOT include a $7 park fee. Verizon coverage was 2 bars of 5. Site #31 was listed for a 40-footer. Our 39-ft trailer on a long truck fit...just. Note these sites do NOT have sewer. Beautiful, isolated, and quiet. We'd return again but only if we can stay longer.
We LOVE Thousand Trails Verde Valley. We have stayed at 9 Thousand Trails parks and this is our favorite. Of course, the area is simple wonderful: Sedona, Cottonwood, Flagstaff, and wacky Jerome. The staff and amenities are great. North of Section H is a gate in the fence to walk a public land road, so you can walk the dog without a leash. We were never close enough to the Family Center or Pool Lounge to use the Wi-Fi signal; but when we would go there it was usually strong enough for video (though they ask you not to hog it by watching movies). Verizon coverage for phone and hotspot was usually 3 of 5 bars. The site sizes are great; fit 38 ft 5th wheel and long truck and car with no problem in both Sections H and C. Bathrooms get a 5 of 10. Like virtually all parks we have been to, they only recycle aluminum cans, which is disappointing that RV park management doesn't care enough about our grand-children's future planet to has a complete program. Current program does not help us, since aluminum cans are unhealthy containers AND usually have unhealthy contents. Recycling for everything else is conveniently in the WalMart parking lot in Cottonwood. BTW, both Cottonwood and Sedona have great, healthy grocery stores. Love Verde Valley and will return often!
Very nice park…super convenient to Camping World - which we needed this time. We were very fortunate to get a reservation for the opening weekend of the ABQ Balloon Fiesta with only two-weeks notice. Flat rate for Fiesta-time for nice pull-through (without sewer hook-up) was $49. Site was so long we did not need to detach our long F-250 from 38’ 5th-wheel. Waste dump was easy access when leaving. Verizon coverage was 3 of 5 bars. WiFi from lodge was unusable half way back in the park. Showers were 7.5 of 10; but women’s room was lacking good lighting and hooks/shelves. Overall, great place. Fun park office/store memorializing Historic Route 66! Would recommend and stay again.
Great park…super value. Spent two nights here with an electric and water hook-up. Waste dump is easy on the way out. It is not crowded here in early October, but the dogs across the highway were just as loud as when we visited one year ago. Verizon coverage was 3 of 5 bars. Did not use restroom showers, as they locked the buildings at night, when we intended to use them. Ranger was very helpful in allowing us to stay until 9pm on check-out day, due to significant winds on the highways that afternoon. Would definite recommend this park.
Great place! Friendly staff – I would have taken 2 days to wedge our 5th-wheel into Site #11 without staff help. We were just happy to get the place, since it is quite in-demand in the spring and summer. The rate shown is based on a weekly rate. It is a small park, but clean and convenient to the foothill of the Rockies and Loveland. Bathroom/showers were cozy, but clean: 4 of 5. Verizon was 2 of 5 bars. Head back into Loveland 2 minutes for the Devil’s Backbone Open Area. Great walks and glorious views!
We always enjoy this TT park. Were here for two months. Rate reflects TT membership. Bathrooms are 6 of 10. Verizon coverage is 3 of 5 bars. They claim WiFi from activity center is good :on the hill" - in the G-section, however we could not get a reliable signal in either G-5 or G-9. Just completely re-built the hot tub; it is VERY nice. Gate staff is GREAT! We'll be back next winter!
Be sure and notice that most of the sites do Not have sewer hook-up. Only 7 sites in area near amenities (and few of them are "personal" or "handicap.") Other dozen 30-amp sites with sewer are off in the "boonies." Rate reflects TT membership. Bathrooms are 5 of 10. Verizon coverage 1 or 2 bars of 5.
What a delight! We were only there two nights and used none of the amenities as we were there to visit family and friends in the area. Very convenient to downtown. The park is beautifully maintained, concrete roadways and level pads. No problem navigating with 60-foot F-250 and 38-ft 5th-wheel. Bathrooms were immaculate! Quiet. Verizon was 4 of 5 bars. Would definitely recommend and return.
Wonderful, short, overnight stay. This would be a great destination park as it has the "world's largest open air swimming pool" (fed by hot springs). Mine was a 11PM arrival and 8 AM departure. Easy pull-throughs, some 30 and some 50 amp/cable. $14/$17, does not include $7 park entry fee (if you do not have TX park pass). Verizon 3 bars of 5. No Wi-Fi. I would return!
I had forgotten how much fun it is to not panic at the appearance of the "coziness" of this park! But, despite the thousand palm trees (one of two between each site) - and thus the name of this Palm Spring "suburb" - it really is OK to get around; even in a 38 foot, 5th-wheel and long-bed truck. The rate indicates we are TT members. This is a busy place in November after the snow-birds arrive, but pleasant. Bathrooms 7 of 10. Verizon 3 bars of 5.
Very unusual experience. A beautifully maintained and managed 55+ resort. A lot of "permanent" snow-bird mobile homes. Immaculate grounds, pool and hot tub. Activities galore...we had time for none of them. Rate reflects an Encore "weekly special" rate. Very generous paved roads and gravel site with concrete patio pads. No cable or Wi-Fi. Verizon service was 4 of 5 bars. We would definitely return.
A fine, convenient and good-value location for the Reno area. We are not casino-interested folks, but this campground worked out very well for us. In mid-November, you have your pick of sites. There were maybe 20 units in the 203 sites. Wi-Fi in Site K13 was 2-3 bars of 5. Verizon service was 3 of 5. Bathrooms were 6 of 10. We would return if in the area.
This is a beautiful location, right on the bend of the South Fork of the American River. We were in the H-section, RIGHT on the river. It was gorgeous! The park is old. It has seen better days for a facilities standpoint. Because of the topography and windy and pot-holed roads this place IS a challenge for big-rigs. As a 38-foot 5th-wheel, the corners and the sites were tight. Also, the entry area is tight and the dump area is a bit odd, exiting through the maintenance area. The Verizon cell tower "to-be-installed", mentioned in an earlier review, is now in place. We got 2-3 bars of 5 on the river sites. Bathrooms were 6 of 10. We WOULD stay here again.
This was a convenient location for a one-night stay. It was after peak-season, so there was plenty to pick from. We did not use the bathrooms as we arrived late and left unexpectedly early to visit the B&B RV Center for service. (BTW: B&B RV Center was GREAT and responsive to our "walk-in.") This time of year, most appeared to be permanents. It was generally quiet, but you can hear I-5. The park is in a lovely location, right on the Sacramento River. It was very clean and I really liked the sites, being gravel with concrete 2" curbs along each side. This keeps drivers from messing up the grass and the sites very tidy. Internet was good in Site 34. Verizon coverage was very good. We would return.
We were here during fall colors. It is a large-capacity park, but the trees make it beautiful and not seem so crowded. Staff was helpful. We were in Site 958 near the back of the park so the Wi-Fi was marginal. Verizon service was good. Bathrooms were 6 of 10. We were certainly disappointed to have our bikes (which were new, we'd ridden them twice) stolen from our site on the second of our two night stay. Guess we will lock the bikes as we do our generators. The staff was apologetic and a woman from the park "walk patrol" came around to interview us. Sad that there is still so much more work to do to raise some people to a higher level of living with their fellow humans.
This was an unplanned stop for 2 nights. ("Saw it from the highway." No RV Review.) Staff was helpful in putting us in a pull-through, really a "drive-along." The park is nicely laid out with a lot of shade trees. We were here "after season" so virtually all the guests were permanent. I have never seen that many gray and blue tarps on RV roofs. Despite the "look" it was quiet, comfortable and convenient. Bathrooms 7 of 10. Verizon great. Wi-Fi in Site 52 was good. They do NOT recycle.
These folks were very helpful with our special need to arrive at 1AM. We needed water hook-up. Since most of the park had already been closed and "drained," they put us in a "permanent" site. Since we were conducting an event in town the next night and wanted to move-on to reduce our below-freezing nights, they let us depart at 10PM without paying for the night. Wi-Fi was strong. Verizon service was great. We used the uni-sex handicap bathrooms in the Activity Building and they were 9 of 10. We would return.
Cherry Hill is a great park. The rate is based on a Good Sam discount. Much of the park was closed down for the season. We were in Site B14, which seemed to have a partially blocked Wi-Fi signal (which is in the office). We could only get 2 bars of 5 on the Wi-Fi. Bathrooms were a 7 of 10. They do not recycle. (Parks need to get into this century.) The entrance off of Main Street is a little rough, evidenced by the gouges in the pavements in both directions. There is an entrance through the parking lot below the batting cages: off of Lloyd Road. You might call ahead to confirm the gate from Lloyd is open. We would definitely visit again.
Great park! Price reflects only electric and water. Friendly, helpful staff. Paved, wide roads. A little dusty during high winds. Stayed in Site 139: good news = very large, easy back-in with 38ft 5th wheel; not-so-good = at park entrance, so the frontage road and Interstate noise was noticeable. Verizon coverage 4 or 5 bars. They do not recycle. Staff told me they tried, but visitors just used them as trash cans. Come on folks - it's 2012 - LET'S RECYCLE! Bathroom and showers in clubhouse were 9 of 10! "I'll be back"!
Beautiful State park. Wish we were there longer to enjoy the amenities. In addition to campsite fee, there is a $6/night/person entry fee. Wonderful staff. Very quiet - there mid-week. Verizon coverage was 4 of 5 bars. They recycle = thank you. Showers were 7 of 10. We would return.
We are TT member, so were staying on per-paid nights. Very nice park. Friendly and helpful staff. Beautiful sunsets over Lake Conroe. We stayed in Site E-17 for 2 weeks. Very nice, big lot. In that section backs to trees and is very quiet. Verizon coverage 2-3 bars of 5. Recycling for aluminum cans only, no plastic recycle = disappointment. Nice and clean pool. Showers 7 of 10. We would return.
Great little County park. We used the amenities; however, it was ideal for visiting Fairfield and the Maharishi University. Clean bathrooms and showers. We were blessed to get one of the first sites going into the park and on a curve so back-in with 38 ft RV was no problem. Multiple sites could have handled us. Be sure and check out the local stage theater. King Lear was "big city" quality for $20!
These "simple" county parks continue to amaze me. This one is in a beautiful setting. Easy assess, even for 38 foot RV and long-bed truck. Nice park map shows lengths for each site. You don't have to get out and walk around to pick a site. Waterfront pads are paved and fairly level. A bit off the Interstate, but worth the 4-5 mile drive. A gem.
Wow! In 2.5 years of full-timing, this is the nicest park we have been in! New, clean, well-designed, friendly staff. The bathrooms/showers (at least the ones we used at the office/pool), were as beautiful and clean as a Four Seasons Hotel. Crystal clear pool. Level concrete pads. Close to all you would want to visit in Hot Springs. These rates reflect waterfront 50amp (most expensive) at the AAA/Good Sam rate.
Great overnight or couple day stay place. We have no interest in casino or dog racing, but this was convenient to our 48-state tour raising awareness for the Birth 2012 Movement. This was all the convenience we needed. Clean and bright showers and 50-amp service. PILOT travel plaza and Camping World are at same I-80 exit. We'd return, if in the area.
A nice park for a overnight stay. Easy in and out. Unfortunately, the person that took our call 3 hours before our after-hours-arrival, did not mention that the entire park’s water supply was frozen, as we were expecting water. They did not discount the fee, based on a lack of water, which was a bit disappointing.
What a great find! We called after-hours for an unexpected stay-over when Interstate-10 was closed in the entire state of NM. A friendly offer to pull in for the night was very welcome. It was a frigid night and the easy, large pull-through site immediately inside the front gate was a breeze. Departure in the AM was equally easy: straight ahead and out the exit gate! Too cold to use any amenities, but this park really saved us. And, they had free waffles and coffee in the AM!
