We have camped in this campground several times over the past 6 years, and it has definitely gone downhill since we were here 2 years ago. The swimming pool was torn out, and the hole has never been filled in. It is an eye sore and a water-filled hazard and poorly fenced. There is a charge for the WiFi, but the staff person warned me that it works off and on. You can sit on a hard bench with no shelter outside the office and get free WiFi, but it is very uncomfortable and exposed to the weather. We had a back-in site on the creek, and it rained constantly for 2 days straight. The creek rose, and we were told that we might have to move to higher ground. Fortunately, it finally stopped raining, and we didn't have to move. There was standing water throughout our site, and the rain wasn't heavy, just constant. There are big tree stumps all over the park, and they make it harder for big rigs to maneuver. The staff are very nice. We stayed there because we got 50% off the rates (which made it $21 a night), and because we like the location, in-between the Blue Ridge Parkway and the Cataloochee Valley.
We have stayed at this campground several times over the past 6 or 7 years, and it is one of our favorites. It is definitely challenging to drive here -- either up a two-lane mountain road with switchbacks (Highway 276 out of South Carolina) or on a two-lane country road out of Hendersonville, NC. If you have a rig over 25 feet, do not attempt to go through Brevard on Highway 276. The campground entrance is steep and narrow, and we always pull over and disconnect our tow vehicle before attempting the entrance. That being said, the campground is beautiful. It is about 20 minutes outside Brevard, up in the mountains away from everything else, and that is how we like it. The sites are wide and level, and they are terraced and staggered so you have a nice forest view. The campground is staffed by the family who owns it, and they are wonderful people. Everything is clean and well cared for. The WiFi works well, and Verizon cell phone service is available at the office. But we can use Skype for phone calls at our campsite. We definitely plan on coming back, especially in the spring.
We have stayed at this campground several times and keep coming back because it is a great location, it is very well maintained, and it has good pull through sites. The premium sites have concrete pads. We stayed on the perimeter with a view of a meadow and the mountains out our front motor home windows. It is lovely. The landscaping is very attractive, too. The campground is gated with a security code. The staff are very efficient and helpful. There are shorter sites that back up to the Little River, and there is a two lane, blacktop country road in-between the campground and the river. We find it helpful to disconnect the tow vehicle before heading to the camp site because there is a tight turn right after the gate, and larger rigs may have to back up once or twice to negotiate that turn. Exiting is easier.
Not a Big-Rig friendly park. The long entry road is extremely dusty. Interior roads are tortuous with large pine trees and large rocks - difficult to drive and park without major damage to RV body. Be very careful while the staff is directing you to your site! Many sites not level. Electricity inadequate - 30 amp only and voltage drops below 105 risking system shutdown or appliance damage. Water in short supply. No WiFi or cable and trees block satellite. Unfortunately this is the only North Rim campground with hookups. OK for small rigs, but if we return to the North Rim, which is Awesome compared to the overcrowded South Rim, we would dry camp at another area campground.
We looked for an RV campground with easy access, pull through 50-amp sites and good security. We had to leave the RV and fly home, so the security was a major concern, as was the 50 amp hook up. The campground staff were extremely nice and helpful. There is NO shade in this campground, which means we had good satellite reception but no relief from the sun and heat. It is about 15-20 minutes driving time to the Strip and about the same time to the airport. The campground is located on a main street in a clean neighborhood. The campground itself is extremely clean and well maintained.
We camped here with a caravan. Nice back in sites on concrete with paved side site for tow vehicle. Beautifully landscaped but no shade, which is a factor in the desert heat. Very nice office with adjacent club house: excellent for rallies or caravans. Wi-Fi was available but not strong. Located on the outskirts of Pahrump, about an hour from Las Vegas and an hour in the opposite direction from Death Valley National Park. Easy access in and out of campground.
We stayed here 3 nights as part of a caravan. This is an older park which is shabby with many older permanents, piles of trash everywhere and old campers down in the gulley. The roads are narrow and rutted with big-rig access difficult because of trucks and trailers parked haphazardly at sites, and kids & toddlers running around. Many sites are not level. The Tengo pay Wi-Fi worked poorly but the cable TV was free and the pool was nice. The location is convenient to I-15, Zion and the Kolob Canyons and has spectacular views of the morning sun on the red canyon walls. Staff was friendly. Pet owners complained. Nice shade trees. Has been bought by Encore but needs a lot of work.
Entrance road now paved and easy access off I-25 with fuel available at this exit. Clean, wide pull-through sites with 50 amp, new gravel, free Wi-Fi, and nice people. Many new 5th wheels here used by people fishing the lake on weekends. It is located on an exposed hillside which can be quite windy but offers great views of the countryside, lake, trains and sunsets. This was a good choice for visiting the Fort Laramie & Oregon Trail sights, Glendo Lake and the Platte River.
We loved this campground for our visit to Colorado Springs. They have a spa but no pool. Children loved the big playground and pets loved the fenced dog-run. Deer pranced around the RV every day. Cellphone signal is marginal but the free Wi-Fi worked well as did Skype. Most campers were using satellite dishes for TV. Don't miss the fun hike up the hill behind the campground - wildflowers, cactus flowers, spectacular views of snow-capped mountains, tanks racing around Fort Carson, ranches and a llama farm. Juniper Valley restaurant across the highway is open Fri-Sun for family-style chicken and ham dinners. RESERVE EARLY or you won't get in. The campground is about 12 miles south of the city in a quiet valley. SR-115 is a wide highway with passing lanes, a fuel stop at the junction of US-50 and it feeds in to the SW side of Colorado Springs near the zoo, the Broadmoor and Cheyenne Mountain parks and canyons. We loved this daily drive through red rock countryside. We looked at a bunch of other campgrounds and would definitely stay at Mountaindale again.
Betty's RV Park is a little off the beaten path but is a destination worth the drive. If you used to love visiting New Orleans for the food, music and Cajun/Creole culture but now NOLA is too nasty and scary - then Betty's is the place for you! It has 50-amp full hookups, access for big rigs and free Wi-Fi. Happy hour starts at 4:30 in Betty's pleasant shaded and decorated garden where you get the info on where to eat or hear music. We eat out 3 meals a day with restaurants equal to and cheaper than New Orleans. There is plenty to see between meals too, like the Tabasco plant & gardens, swamp tours & gators, and spotting James Lee Burke sights in New Iberia if you are a fan of his novels. We will definitely be back.
Great campground for our visit to Santa Fe. Easy access to I-25 and SR-599 zips you around town to the sites north of the city like Indian Pueblos & casinos, High Road to Taos, cliff dwellings, etc. Beautiful 360 view & sunsets. Good Wi-Fi and cell service - nice family owners. Situated on top of a ridge which is exposed and dusty when the wind blows. El Rancho de las Golandrinas living history museum is nearby and a wonderful day for us. WiFi worked pretty well for us. We sprung for a premium site with a great view and concrete pad.
