Why I had to pay $27 with Good Sam discount is beyond me. It was $24 last year and nothing has change. I called a nearby park I wanted to try but they wanted $35! This park has the best shower arrangement that I have seen in many years. You can shower, with hot water, and then dress in an area that does not have standing water. They get an ATTA BOY!
Ft. Stockton. Wi-Fi was OK once we got connected but it took a lot of discussion and a move from one site to another. I suspect the office reset their server in the process. We stayed here in 2009 when it was a KOA and I swore I would never return because of the poor wi-fi. I cringe when folks in the office suggest that the reason I am not getting connected could be my computer. Good bath rooms and showers. Several TV channels are available from a decent, rotatable, antenna with booster. If you are multi-lingual you are in luck. If you are a cat lover you will love this park. We ate at the café which offers decent, hot, food in the $8 to $9 range. Don’t expect to find east TX smoked ribs here. $2 beers and a chance to chat with other campers makes it a nice sitting. We paid $30 which may have included our Good Sam discount. Rates may change from shift to shift. This is $10 to high for an off season stay.
It took 1/2 hour on the phone to wi-fi service to get connected on wi-fi. They “manually” connected me for the days of our stay. They were having communication problems in the Kinder area. Super showers and plenty of hot water. They need a longer curtain to keep water off the dressing area floor plus a mat. Hotel and Chalets were sold out on Saturday due to a car give-a-way promotion but the RV park was only ½ filled. The park is slightly terraced so transition rows have more slope front to rear than the level rows. Seems to me the park has nearly 200 sites, not 110. Standard Rates are now $20 and $45 on Friday/Saturday. Comps are tighter than they were last year. We had all 4 days comped but it is strange process. They gave more comps to my wife’s play on the Penny machines than my play at the tables. Getting a receipt on check out showing $0 balance is difficult. This park would rate a 10 if it had an on site, all weather, pool and hot tub.
Very nice RV park. Rates a 10 if it had on site, all season, pool and hot tub. Showers are very nice but hot water was not hot enough for me. They also need a mat in the dressing area. Casino crap table activity was slow during the week as were the free drinks. Park is a real bargain at the PA rate. Our 4 day stay was comp’ed due to our modest ($$) gambling. Be sure to get a bill on check out to insure comps were indeed registered.
Fontainebleau - We were here last year in early December and the park was only ½ filled. We were lucky to get a site for 2 days on a weekend this time in early November. Wi-Fi was good all day Friday but went down Saturday at 9AM. It was still out when we left Sunday AM. The local park office said there is nothing they can do about the Wi-Fi as it is handled remotely from the state park headquarters, somewhere. He didn’t even have a number to call! Incredible! Therefore, I elect to say they do NOT have Wi-Fi. They also block certain, unknown, web sites so big brother may be monitoring your Internet time. We stayed 2 days which averaged out to be $21 when you include the registration rip off fee of $6.
Very nice. Rates a 10 if it had an on site, all season pool and hot tub. Showers need a mat in the dressing area. Office doesn’t open until 9AM which is a disadvantage because there are usually miscommunications between the casino and the park on Comps. I never leave unless I have a final bill in my hands. We stayed 3 nights and had 2 nights complimentary with modest ($$) gambling. Good Sam rate ends up being $34 with tax.
Hill Top Large park, plenty of room, easy access, great showers and a $1.50 laundry. Showers are well equipped and maintained. Only problem is the triangular corner stool is not fastened to the wall and will tilt if you put your foot on it. I had a problem getting connected on WiFi at the far NE corner of park but manager reset the system and I got on. Manager came by to check on my status. Strongest signal will be down the center line of the park as there is an antenna at the office and in the rear center. Modest number of TV channels which can be a blessing. Near by truck stop with diner is worthy of a visit. We stayed here 2 days. PA rate was $17 which is $18.53 total including tax. Regular rack rate is $26 + tax so there is a conflict with Pass Port’s claim of 50% discount. The number I put in the rate box is the total $, rounded, that it cost me to stay at that park. Some parks have low rates but then charge for all the “extras” such as 50A, WiFi, Cable, and so on.
Drifters is a small, compacted park. You may be able to get in and out with a big dog but not designed to be big rig friendly. Many full timers but clean and neat sites. We only saw 2 sites for overnighters. Bath house was clean but shower hot water was just warm. You get a full page of rules when you check in and that is followed up with demeaning “Don’t” signs where ever there is a spot on the wall. No pool, no fire ring, no table, no grill. No pull-throughs, but there are plenty of yippy dogs. Wi-Fi and cable are good. $30 for the stay is a $27 Good Sam rate + tax.
We are used to RV parks with many long term campers, mostly workers, but this was different. My wife and I felt uncomfortable with groups of men in various dress walking around, smoking and drinking, in the middle of the afternoon. We had keys to the showers and I checked them out. Given the dark nature of the restrooms and the atmosphere we elected to use our own. Good Wi-Fi and cable. Office staff lady was helpful. No chickens, but there is a train very close to the park. We would try another campground in the future. Rate is PA. Nearby Country Oaks Golf Course was a good course and value on the Golf Card Program at a rate of $22 each.
Devencrest An older park with some sections out of service and many permanent residents. We were directly across from the office. Showers were adequate but not well maintained. Excellent Wi-Fi. Good cable. Due to the layout and maintenance it is difficult to tell what is a functional camping site and how it is entered. Campers should arrive well before the office closes (5PM) so you have assistance in finding a site. While you may get a big rig in and out I would not consider this park designed for big rigs. Enough traffic noise that we had to sleep with our windows closed. We stayed 2 days at the PA Rate.
Due to construction in the area most parks are booked up. This was our 3rd choice and we were lucky to find a spot. The park is in need of some serious maintenance and clean up. Many full time guests and unkempt trailers loaded with pine needles. The toilet and showers are clean but are woefully lacking. Shower water is lukewarm at best, no toilet paper in one stall, and no paper towels or means to dry your hands at the sinks. The hose bib at our site was 3” away from an open sewer connection surrounded by dried toilet paper. Due to the amount of trees and low hanging limbs I would not consider this park big rig friendly. There appeared to be several sites at the entrance end of the park that were out of operation. There was a pool and swings but I was not provided a map, list of amenities and “rules”. The rate, $27, cash only, but should be around $15. The Wi-Fi worked well but we were close to the “office”. Golf at Meridian NAS is a super value at $20.
The down side is the single (1), small, shower. The door can be locked but the location in the Pro Shop is inconvenient. We opted to use our own. The pool looks great but is unheated and we were there out of season. The hot tub was covered and only lukewarm so we passed on that. Club House/Pro Shop/Lounge is modest but nice. It has a pool table ($1), TV, and very reasonably priced adult beverages. They allow you to take your own beverages onto the golf course, which is rare. $2 laundry. Tables, fire ring, and charcoal grill at each site. Good Wi-Fi. Golf course is a fair test and was in fair shape. They had recently over seeded the greens. The fee(s) are very reasonable. I would stay here again. 4 miles west of Ashburn on hard paved GA 112.
This park deserves high ratings because it delivers on what you expect from a KOA. Showers rate a 10 but get a 9 because it takes a full 1 minute for warm water to arrive and 2 minutes for full hot water. There is a shower head in the men’s room that needs replacing. The showers were 4 to 6“ too narrow and needed and extra 12’ in the dressing area. Other than that this park could give tours and seminars to other camp ground owners on how to design and maintain a superior RV park bath house. There were 4 washers and 4 dryers at $1.50 each in the clean but small laundry. We stayed here 2 days expecting to play golf, which never came about. It was interesting to watch the full gauntlet of rigs arrive and depart, most heading to Florida for the winter. It appears that if you have a $500,000 Prevost you will already know of this stopover.
We were looking forward to staying here for as few days and playing golf but I require wi-fi in my RV at my site. When I called the manager told me they had a “hot spot” but may be able to get connected if I had the right site. When I arrived the manager led me to the prime spot but I could not get connected. I thank her and moved on. The park looked about 10% filled and the golf course appeared to be a nice one.
Very good park. Easy to find if you concentrate on the road between Arby’s and BP. Showers rate a 10 except for the type of mat/pad they use in the dressing area. Bath House requires a key. We also had a few ants, the first time in 30 + years of camping. Excellent Wi-Fi and cable. No picnic tables. There is a 50 cent charge for each Credit Card swipe. Nearby Gateway GC is a very nice Muni course as is Lagoon Park in the NE side of town. We stayed 3 days at the PA rate and would return again. PA members are put in the front row, next to the road and further away from the bath house.
Hollywood Casino RV Park is a great park which should be rated at a 10 but they only get an 8. The shower curtains have a basic design flaw that allows water to enter the dressing area. If they would move the curtain rod 4” toward the shower and lower it 4” most of the problem would be solved. A mat in the dressing area would decrease a slipping hazard on the tile floor. They need to add a sign at the main entrance to tell RVers to check in at the main Hotel registration desk where you can also sign up for their players club card. We watch ½ of the RV traffic come to the RV Park in the back of the casino only to find they no longer staff the RV park office. They have to turn around and go back to the main entrance. Now you have one pi**ed off RV driver whose wife is saying “I told you so”. The casino was not over populated or active. Slots were tight and the most I played with at the crap table was one half a table. We stayed here for 6 nights and had 4 nights comped with our modest gaming that usually gets all nights comped on the gulf in Louisiana. I have no need to return to this area.
Most RV Parks in the area are filled up with construction workers on the new power plant north of Meridian. Your PA membership is not worth snot these days. I choose this park as a 2nd selection and the man assured me they had good W-FI and he worked with me to find an available slot. The site (25B) turned out to be one half way in the road and far from the power tower. The last resort was I could not connect to the WI-FI. Fortunately I have learned not to pay until I have verified what is advertised. We found the person running the office nice but unsure of what was what as the previous poster reported. We moved on.
The $10 PA rate is a good bargain, as witnessed by all the high $$ rigs here instead of the Walmart parking lot. The park was overflowing due to the Obama shut down of the US Government which closed nearby cheap camping in the COE parks. We were lucky to get a spot in the overflow area which in some aspects is better than the regular sites. There is 1 bathroom for women and 1 for men. The men’s shower rates a 2, but may be under renovation as was done to the women’s bathroom. Wi-Fi was excellent.
Overland Park. If you require good WI-Fi avoid this park. They will tell you it works when you call, they will tell you no one has reported problems when you check in. I made the mistake of paying and then finding their system was down and inadequate. I had a strong signal but NO connectivity. Then we went thru the goat rope with the clerk. He admitted the system is inadequate but refused to give me a refund so I could move a few miles east to Alma. He re-booted the system and we had slow wi-fi for about 20 minutes then nothing for several minutes. It was off and on during our 1 day stay. I was going to stay here 3 days and play nearby golf courses but we are moving on. They do have near excellent bath and showers. The only thing missing is a soap tray in the shower and a bench or stool to sit on while putting on your shoes. I will not stay here again until I see reports indicating they have updated their wi-fi.
We selected this park based on poor Wi-Fi reports in a nearby PA park. The Wi-Fi here was super fast and reliable. This small park does not have an office but a friendly person will show up and take care of you. The park was nearly filled with long term folks and there was only one other transient seen during our 2 days stay. There were 3 or 4 sites open. The restroom (one shower) is at the far end of the property. It needs a hook on the door to hang your cloths and one on the wall near the shower to hang your towel. The floor needs a coat of paint and a mat out side the shower door. The restroom had soap but nothing to dry your hands on. We would stay here again just to play nearby Fountainhead GC.
We selected this parked based on camp guides that reported it had an 18 hole executive golf course. What we got was the well worn “Former Owner Vs New Owner” routine. The golf course at this park is closed! No one offers that when you call. The park is neat, except for the site I selected, D-17. The former resident must have died of lung cancer from the number of butts cluttering the grass. The showers rate a 10 except for one major factor, we ran out of hot water after barely soaping up. They have a problem here if 2 people tax the hot water at 4PM. The park is 50% filled with long term residents, probably workers that fire up their diesel pickups at 6AM. We would have stayed here 1 more night, at the PA rate, $15, so we could have played nearby golf. The clerk declined my offer, so we moved on. I would not go out of my way to stay here again.
I spend time planning a trip and staying at this park. On the day of arrival I called and learned they are no longer on Pass Port America and their WI-FI was not operational. We had to change our plans.
This park could be a 10 except for a few minor issues. The shower stalls do not have a curtain between the shower and dressing area. There is no mat in the dressing area. The hot tub was down for cleaning. I had asked when I called in that morning for a site if the hot tub was operational; the reply was “yes”. I should have asked if the hot tub will be filled with clean hot water when I want to use it. I was told at 2PM it would be ready in a couple of hours. It was still down at 6PM. They should do this maintenance in the AM if they want happy campers. The sauna was operational, but was no co-located with the pool area. It was by original design but some one messed that up by locking the door. Now you have to go from the sauna to the pool via the front office. There is some constant road noise from I-40, but not too bad if windows are closed. We stayed here specifically because of the limo service available to the Big Tex. We had eaten there some years back and I wanted another platter of Mountain Oysters. This time they were very small, like marbles. Must have been from miniature steers from some place other than Texas.
This park has many long term guests and was 85% full when we stopped at 1PM. The restroom/showers rate a 10 but are not convenient for overnight on the upper level. Wi-Fi was a bit slow during the evening but adequate. Excellent cable. Easy access from I-25. Friendly staff. Another nearby park is listed under Williamsburg, NM. $24 Rate is with Good Sam discount.
Hilltop RV Park. One down side to this park is a lack of phone contact to see if there are sites available. The office is not open during much of the day. Use caution making reservations as there are no refunds. Many parks in this region are near full capacity with construction workers and seasonal visitors. The park has many long term guests, and was 75% full when we stopped at 2PM. Their restroom/shower rate a 10. Wi-Fi is good and over the air TV is adequate. For an overnight stop, we might try another park in the future, as there are others with good reviews, easy access, and at a lower rate.
We got the last site available at 1PM on a cold weekday. Park is filled with long term residents. Caution: Reservations are non-refundable. Very convenient for an over night stop. There is a golf course a few miles up the road toward town. A comment on speed paranoia is well noted. There are also an abundance of other rules and regulations. The community building is very nice with a kitchen, laundry, and 2 unisex restrooms/showers, all very clean. The showers would be a 10 if they had a mat in the dressing area. There was a mess of dried toilet paper around the sewer connection. Sites are covered with thin gravel but could be a tad muddy if it rains. Good (number of channels, not quality) over the air TV and fast Wi-Fi. No road noise however there are diesel trucks firing up at 5AM as the construction workers head to work. Fee posted is 1 night PA rate.
The only thing that keeps this park from being a 10 and true resort is a hot tub. Unlike another review I found the check-in process quick and accommodating. Of note is the lack of the usual lists of rules and regulations. You get a map of the park which has the cable channels and key phone #’s. It is refreshing to be treated as an adult. I list their current fee, which is a steal, but our 4 day stay was comped with modest gambling. Yes, we hope to return.
Park is geared for summer fun and fishing, not over night stops. Roads are well graveled but the few gravel sites may get soupy if it rains. Bath and showers are not convenient to improved camp sites and are basic with concrete floors and open to the outside. Wi-Fi was good with a few slow periods. Signage from I-10 to the park is very well done. Host is congenial and helpful. Best part of this trip was our stop at Poche’s Market/Restaurant/Smokehouse. Fine Cajun foods and meats at low prices. It is on the route to the park from I-10. $16 PA rate shown.
This Resort is designed for family fun, and there are many things to do that keep families coming here. The staff was refreshing as they allowed us to participate in our site selection. Wi-Fi was good. Restrooms and Showers are very clean and have plenty of hot soft water. Another plus is the mat in the shower. The showers need a soap tray in the shower area, clothes hooks and a mat in the dressing area, and a simple closure to the dressing area to rate a 10. We choose this park because of its easy access to I-10 and away from the traffic and train noise in the downtown area; great for an over nighter or a few days. It is quiet and well kept. Rate is PA rate, 30 amp, cable, plus tax. We would stay here again.
This park is near the village of Magnolia Springs, 5 miles west of Foley. Full time residents and long term winter guests are the mainstay. The host was indifferent to my short term stay of 3 days. No map of the park and I had to ask for a statement as well as the amenities. OTOH the residents are very friendly and helpful. If you have a dog you will fit in very well. The park is terraced with the Community building being on the top level. The next 2 levels are older, well shaded, and sites may be on grass or concrete. The newer and lowest level is more spacious and open. The showers were fine as was the Wi-Fi. There was no defined path to the community building or parking. We can recommend the Blue Marlin Family restaurant a few miles west on 98. The 9 hole par 3 course is well kept and fun to play. It is the only reason we would return. Rate posted is the PA rate plus tax.
Azalia The park is some what level with very spacious sites on grass/dirt. A high point is the nice community building which houses the bath/showers, office, laundry, etc. The showers get a 10+ and are a model for other parks to duplicate. Wi-Fi is super but we were on site 17, directly under the antenna. The hosts were nice and the park was 50% filled to date with winter guests. They like for you to call when you get off I-10, exit 53, so they can meet you at the gate and lead you to the site they have for you. I prefer to visit the office first and review site options. The laundry required $2.50 for a washer which we thought was high. We had lunch at the Derailed Dinner at exit 53 which has a very nice menu and good food. We were limited to 2 days only at the PA rate, a recent change which we informed of when we called. There are 3 other RV parks in the immediate area.
We have been here several times in the past and Wi-Fi was erratic. They may have fixed it as we had very good Wi-Fi for 4 days. Use the RV PARK connection. The Hollywood RV Park connection is now disabled, but present. Showers would be a 10 if the water was a tad hotter, had a soap tray and a mat in the dressing area. Shuttles to the casino are now less frequent. The park is less then 20% filled even on weekends. The park office is now located in the NE corner of the Bath/Laundry building. The 9 AM office opening can be a nuisance if you are expecting to get a bill noting camp ground fees have been comp’ed. The fee is high for a Casino RV Park.
Campground websites for this park and nearby Fairview-Riverside state the parks are closed for repairs. They were damaged from Hurricane Isaac. Fontainebleau is open while Fairview remains closed until January 2013 according to park staff. $24 Rate is for a pull-through site; $2 more in the older (south) section plus the onerous $6 reservation fee. IMHO this fee should not be charged to folks that do not use the reservation system. Roads in the older section are narrow with many nearby trees. The newer (north) section has circular pull thrus which big rigs may find easier to navigate. Showers did not have a soap tray in the shower or a mat and bench in the dressing area. Hot water was good, nice laundry, and good Wi-Fi. Ample TV via antenna. This park is much better than most state parks and offers much, particularly for families during summer, when rates are higher. Roads and sites are paved so rain is not a factor for access. Wi-Fi is monitored and censored. Access to unnamed web sites, like YouTube, are blocked. We would stay here again.
Compared to any other government owned and managed RV campground this one is a 10. Very helpful staff at check-in. I give the park an 8 based on a few minor issues. The showers need a mat and bench in the dressing area. Hot water was barely acceptable in all the handicap accessible bathrooms. Charging drive ins, without reservations, the $6 reservation or transaction fee is a rip off. It added nothing to my visit and goes to a private company, not the state. Wi-Fi was inoperable in the lower campground so stayed in the upper campground. TV via antenna yields 30+ channels. The park was less then 5% filled during this off season. Dust was no problem as it rained 2” overnight. The roads are paved but the mostly level sites are graveled. We would camp here again.
Very nice RV Park. I would give them a 10 except for a few items that detract from being a true, first class, resort. Check in took ½ hour due to a long line and only one person working. Unless you study your bill, you may miss the $1/day fee for use of the Resort and RV Park. This is a nuisance charge similar to the fee Hotels charge for the safe in your room. Showers need a mat and a bench in the dressing area. Hot water was barely acceptable in the Handicap accessible area. Rate ($11.73) is the average of a 5 day stay, including 2 weekend days at the Passport America rate. We would stay here again if in the area.
Rate was $25 or $28.38 with the 13.5% tax. We have stayed here before and not much has changed. Staff in office is rather curt for a business that should be welcoming costumers. Park and restrooms are clean. The shower needs 3 items for a higher rating; a curtain to keep water out of the dressing area, a mat in the dressing area, and a soap tray in the shower area. WI-FI is very erratic bordering on unusable. I spent 30 minutes on the phone with the park’s WI-FI support, most likely India. They said they reset the local server and I did get connected with a stronger signal, 4 bars out of 5. That lasted for 4 hours. Now the signal is 3 bars and no connection. We are in site 27, in the middle of the park. The cone antenna on the office roof appears to feed only those sites directly in front of the office. Day 2 had the same problem. No wonder they are reserved. I can sleep with train and freeway noise but not wasting my time on poor wi-fi. This park would be wise to spend a few bucks to update their system and keep their clients.
Cable and Air TV OK, no WI-FI. My 2012 Acer could not get connectivity at sites 3 and 5 next to motel, or 13 in the center. Wi-Fi OK in office. Bath house needs cleaning and maintenance. Urinal would not flush, paper and dead cockroaches on the floor and the hot water was barely lukewarm. Lock on Ladies Bathroom was broken. Only 3 sites were taken. We will not stay here again.
Park Host says the park is now known as Llano River RV Park since the Golf Course is now managed by a firm, not the city. Call 325-247-5100 for golf, 325-247-7905 for park reservations. No cable, no tents, great Wi-Fi, a few TV channels via antenna. Only 1 shower and toilet; separate but clean. Shower needs a mat in the dressing area. Seasonal campers fill 75% of the park at this date Fishing access is a short walk. There is a new RV park, Riverway RV Park, on the right (N) before you get to the city park. Looks reasonable but no showers. Continue west ½ mile but DO NOT enter at the narrow entrance signed, Ray House. Continue to the next right, a much better entrance to the park. You should see the Police Station. Llano River GC, ½ mile further west, is a good course and a bargain if you ask for the RV Park discount. Two played on a weekend riding 18 holes for $36.40. Regular rate is $50. We would camp and golf here again.
A spacious, level, and well kept park. Guests can gather large soft shell pecans from the abundance of large pecan trees. Park host was very accommodating. The only thing needed in the handicap accessible showers is a small mat in the dressing area. We never saw or heard a dog during our 2 day stay. The map is some what misleading. Continue south past the Fort Mason Health facility on the right to the next left for entrance to the park. While the park is adjacent to the golf course the pro shop is up the hill about ½ mile. Green fees are $15 and a cart is $5/9 holes. The course's cart path only for carts. WI-Fi was excellent. The only down side, for some is only 1 TV channel, Fox from Austin, is available via antenna. We would stay here again if in the area.
This is a very good campground as noted by other posters. Fine points are the cleanliness in a mature campground and the staff. The showers could use a small foot stool or bench to help one dress. Cable TV was marginal but WI-FI was top notch. We were allowed to select any site we wanted, in our 30 Amp price range. The absence of a 2 page Rules and Regulations document was refreshing. Fee is for a 30 Amp site with a $5 discount with some type of travel card. We will stay here again for an overnight visit.
My rate was a $21.50 Good Sam rate plus too many taxes. Good spot for an over night stay as it is easy to get to from I-25. Basic southwest RV PK with gravel and stubby trees. Wi-Fi worked great which is why I choose this one. There is a nearby RV PK that wants $30 but doesn’t have Wi-Fi. Showers were limited in number but that is not uncommon for a park that probably 90% seasonal or long term. The shower, in an individual and lockable bathroom/toilet had the appropriate mats and stools. The shower head needed maintenance as it spewed water all over the place due to a poor fitting. Under the circumstances, very cold weather, I would stay here again but in the future would like to try the park that offers hot springs.
We camped here 1 night, and it exceeded our expectations. Our rate includes a Good Sam Discount. The “General Store” is a stock of basic goods for campers as you will find in many camps or resorts in the Frio River area. The showers were very clean and had a mat and other features seldom found even in high $$ resorts. Well Done! Wi-Fi was excellent, and the owners/managers were nice and friendly. There was no cell phone service for our Verizon contract. The “town” of Concan must be a gas station ($3.20/gal) at the junction of 83/127. The town of Leakey is MUCH bigger. I would like to camp here again in high season and float the river.
We are trying this park as an alternate to Nueces County, Padre Balli Park; locate south about 7 miles on North Padre Island. Another poster had reported that park has exceeded its value at $23/night and I agree. Others have described this park, distance to the beach, etc, very well. I find the general layout/facility very well done and a better sense of safety and security here. The rate was $16 plus $8/day for the entrance fee for the wife and me. On the plus side is the Wi-Fi. It is available in the park office and office parking lot and may be available at your site depending on how close you are to the office. We have 2 to3 bars and decent speed in site 3. The down side is the showers which are unheated with no entrance door or privacy for the dressing areas. There is a shower stall plastic curtain but it is 12” too short. The shower head is fixed, in the wall, and directed at the entrance to the shower which guarantees the dressing area will be wet concrete. Peeling paint and a crude design reminds one you are in a government facility. I would stay here again for access to the beach.
The rate is still $20/100/340, d/w/m. This includes all utilities since the electric is not metered. Therefore the park is 90% filled with Snow Birds with monthly leases and will max out in a week or so. Wi-Fi is thru a company and works very well. Rates are $3.25/13/20, d/w/m. Over the air (antenna) TV is OK. There are many sites with shade trees. There is a city swimming pool in this city facility which includes the golf course. There is 1 bath room for each sex located in the modest club house. The shower is a big size with sliding doors, a mat outside, and a stool to sit on. The showers were clean but the waste basket was full as the rooms are cleaned only once a week. I would give this park a higher rating however there were too many rules including “Guests may not play Texas Hold’em.” An alternate phone number is 361-364-3147. The number 361-364-2381, found in many Guides is City Hall so don’t waste your time.
This park would rate a 10 if they had an all weather hot tub and the standard sites had more room. The sewer connections are too close to your neighbor’s door. The standard sites may also be a little muddy in wet weather. I also discount if a park has a menu of charges. We paid $22 for a Standard $22 site after a $2 Good Sam discount but a $2 charge for cable TV. We did not get a reduction for not using the pool, for not having a pet, and for not using the club house. The Wi-Fi was fine and the front office was not hesitant to reset it if it went down, unlike many parks that claim the problem is YOUR computer. The strong side to this park is the excellent bathrooms and showers. This park’s showers should be a model for others to copy. They had entry doors and a shower curtain that kept water in the shower. There was a mat on the dressing area floor and ample hooks for clothes. Picnic tables were available and there are ample recreation opportunities. The local 9 hole golf course is OK while Bay City’s Rio Colorado Golf Course is a good bargain and a fine course.
The showers were functional and the water was hot. However, there was mold on the walls, and the stall was littered with personal items. The owners acknowledged they need some attention. I could not connect on their Wi-Fi. I had 5 bars of signal strength but could not get an IP address and connected. There were locals that could connect and some tried to help me. The management even contacted their Tech Guy, and he would have come by, but I declined as it was New Year’s Eve. The management was helpful and the residents we met were friendly. The next day at another RV park my laptop connected automatically as has been the case for some time. The $20 is after a $5 Good Sam discount on the rate of $25.
This RV Park could be a 10 if they had an all weather hot tub and could improve their showers. Showers are clean but lack means of keeping water out of the dressing area. A person should not have to stand in water while dressing. Keep the water out or provide mats. Communications should be improved between the RV Park check in folks and reservations, where ever they are. The golf course is worth the price. As Seniors we paid $25 each. They deserve their high rating. The casino is huge and was on the high $$ side, probably because of a Holiday weekend. The rate quoted over the phone and on their web site was $19/night, a very fair rate. At check-in the rate was $17/night. We had all 4 nights comp'ed by our modest gambling. Wi-Fi was excellent and should be a model for other parks.
This is a neat, tidy park and the owners are nice and accommodating. The sites are very spacious, some on compacted gravel, some on sandy soil. There was a picnic table at each site. The plus side is the ready access to I-10 with out noise. The showers and laundry do not match the rest of the park. There is a single restroom/shower for men and one for ladies. The men shower was unheated, small, dim, and the floor was damp linoleum. The shower had a mat in the standard size one piece shower with shower curtain. There was a chair in the dressing area. The washers were plumbed for cold water only. We paid $21/night for a 30A site with Wi-Fi after our military discount. The Wi-Fi is via Tengointernet and was great for the first day. It was slower the 2nd day and I had to call them, 20 minute call, to get connected the last day. I would stay here again for an overnight stop.
Park has only one shower/toilet in the mobile that serves as an office and laundry. The shower, a tub type, was clean but lacks a mat to stand on in the dressing area. Water was hot indicating the park lawyer has not showered here. Other than the single shower, you get a lot for your $20. Excellent Wi-Fi and lots of 4 legged squirrels enjoy this park. This is not an RV Resort but I wasn’t looking for one when I stopped here.
Good park as others have posted. The regular rate at this time was $35, $31.51 with Good Sam discount, which results in a charge of $33.71 ($34) including tax. On the PLUS side, if you gamble your COMP points can be applied to your RV Park charges rather than the over priced buffet meals. The staff in the RV office was on the ball and had our player’s club cards from the old Casino Magic days updated and ready for us when we checked in. She had our comp points deducted the day we checked out. On the Minus side, the Wi-Fi was slow to intermittent even tho I was put is a spot that was suppose to be good for Wi-Fi. I had to wait minutes for some response and did several repairs. RV park of far lesser means have solved these problems. The showers were clean however the shower stalls did not have a mat to stand on while dressing. Use of off site facilities such as a pool in the adjacent hotel does not warrant my consideration. The lack of a hot tub deducts points. We will return in the future.
We first stayed here in 1997 and then again in 1999 when it was Isle of Capri. The rate was $15 and gas was $1.14. Rate now is $21.03 after the Good Sam discount and with tax you pay $22.50/night. There is gas north of town at $2.79. The breakfast buffet comp has been discontinued as of 12/1/10. The lady said the casino will soon discontinue the breakfast buffet. Most sites will require front to back leveling but the staff is very accommodating so seek out a site if you wish. Train noise was distant and a nice touch for one that lives near a track. The showers are clean, adequate, but need a mat out side the shower stall. Wi-Fi was super at site 24 near the office. Cable TV quantity exceeded quality. Office staff reflected the old south courtesy. Washers and dryers were only 1 Buck! This is the best RV Park Bargain I have seen in many years. No hot tub cuts into the final rating.
Rate was $35/night before $5 discount for their Players Club card. Tax makes the rate $34. Park has good Wi-Fi now. You must have a code from the office and the Log-On process requires you to provide a Credit Card but the charge is zero (0). The restrooms and showers are nice and clean however they need a curtain to keep water in the shower and off the dressing area floor. Ask for a card for the locked restrooms. If you are arriving from the 220 Bypass on highway 3 take Hamilton St. to get to the Casino. Stay right until you are across Highway 72 and then take the first left turn into the RV park. Buffet was good. We stayed here in the past and would in the future.
I was not aware of the $5 charge for Wi-Fi when I went to check in. I left. The park offers a Good Sam Discount (10%) but I will not stay in a park that adds a fee for Wi-Fi but not other amenities. IMHO $40 is a high rate for off season use of this park. The clerk tried to justify the rate by saying it was Canton’s Trade Days. This was true but it was late on the last day of Trade Days and the park was 90% empty. Even the “Complimentary Shuttle” to Trade Days ended at 4PM and would have been of no use to us as we wanted to shop longer. This is not an issue of frugality, but of fairness and common sense in pricing. If I don’t use the pool, hot tub, laundry, water, sewer, or have a pet then give me a discount and show me the menu of charges. I am sure this park is a good bargain in the summer if you have kids but not in off season. We went ¼ mile back down the road to the Best Western RV Park.
Very nice park as others have posted. A refreshing change from the goat rope in Canton, Texas. The only thing missing is a Hot Tub. While the restrooms and showers are squeaky clean I prefer a mat out side the shower so I don’t stand on the floor. A simple peg to hang a towel on immediately outside the shower curtain would be nice. All the hooks are on the wall opposite the shower so you have to get out of the stall and get the floor wet to get to your towel. The spacious showers could be improved by adding a small plastic foot stool. I am not handicapped but have limited mobility in my back and hips that make a foot stool necessary to wash my feet. I asked for directions to Alpine GC and the office gave me a card and said mention this park for a free round of golf. It worked! Great staff that can come up with this. I paid $25 for a standard site $28 site after the Good Sam discount. There is a picnic table at each site, an item that is handy but seldom reported. The free Wi-Fi works great except for the logging on procedure. You have to have a “coupon code” from the office and also enter personal information to get connected. I have stayed at other parks that used Tengo-Internet and all you had to do was hit Connect. If you extend your stay be sure to get a new “coupon code”. We used the showers as we do in all parks. If in this area again I would plan to stay here. The only reason I added so many small details is this park was designed smart from the start. A few little human factor details can make a big difference.
This is a great bargain at $21 plus tax! The restrooms and showers were very clean and spacious. I have excellent Wi-Fi from the hotel at lot 2. They warn you ahead of time but select a back in on sites 1 through 7 for good WI. There is no complementary breakfast now. The park lanes are narrow but it is not a huge problem unless you are a big dog towing. The pull through sites are 60 feet plus. We stayed here in Motor home towing a Saturn which we used to go to the Trade Days goat rope. There are only 4 campers in this park tonight. We came here after turning down Mills Creek because they wanted to sock us with a $5 fee for Wi-Fi. No way Jose! The entrance is in a very busy area. Take the wide concrete path between the Shell and Chevron stations. There is a RV sign further south but it is unknown where this leads.
Level lots, fast Wi-Fi, clean restrooms and adjacent to golf. The only thing I found missing was a picnic table. Even tho some RV sites abut the golf course the Pro Shop is about ½ mile from the RV park so expect to drive to play unless you have your own cart and are a long term lease. Wi-Fi was great. There were many sites available even tho we were there the week leading up to the Pecan Festival. My wife picked up 2 pounds of Pecans in the park and 3 pounds while playing 18 holes. There was only one rest room/shower for each sex but no one was using them.
We have stayed in various parks here in the last 20 years and despite my record keeping, it is hard to keep track of who is who. Thanks to this website we ended up here, at Hilltop, and can recommend it as others have. Ft, Stockton RV Park was a KOA 2 years ago and the Wi-Fi was bad. Parkview has declined far it does not offer Wi-Fi. I was willing to give A and M another try but was turned off by the phone conversation. We had a hard time evaluating our stay at this park because there is no one in the office to answer questions and the phone gets you a recorder. Thanks to the reviewers here we stayed the night and can recommend it.
We stayed in this park back in December 2004 and had very nice time. At that time the rate was $22/night. We were only going to stay 1 night but ended up staying 3 nights on our way south. Handcock Park’s golf course is across the road and very close. We played golf and my MO born wife became enthralled with all the Pecan trees. She started to walk back to the course after we had returned to Boones to pick Pecans but her shopping bags were full before she got half way. Just north of the park at the major triangle was a very good smoked B-B-Q place. Yum! In those days they did not have Wi-Fi but had a very nice computer room. We are leaving NM in a few days heading south for the winter and Boone’s is our first target destination. I hope can “go back a 2nd time”. This old review may not fit the mold of this web site but may show consistency.
We would not have stayed here, but a reviewer mentioned the Wi-Fi which is not mentioned in the guides. I have passed by this park many times in the past. It appears to be a KOA of many years past. Park models and permanents dominate. There may be 5 or more sites for overnighters, but that is hard to determine due to the layout. We are the only transient here this evening. The site the lady led us to was hard to recognize due to the weed growth. There was a huge (old) cottonwood tree that prevented me from getting close to the utilities. I suggested I come in from the other direction, but the lady said I would be taking up 2 sites. Her indifference was notable. The layout of the utilities is not modern and somewhat strange. After avoiding the tree, the power box is near the driver’s location, the water more forward, with the cable and sewer near the rear end of my 29 foot RV. The showers are very dated with mold and deteriorating walls. There was hot water, and mats on the floors. It took me some time to get connected with the Wi-Fi; I had to disable my AVG and Zone Alarm to connect. Once connected these aids were restarted. The access code I was given didn’t seem to help. Nor did the lady in the office who doesn’t use the Wi-Fi. The Wi-Fi works well. We paid $22.49 to camp here in our motor home. It is quiet. There was a 9 hole golf course in nearby Eager, but it is now closed. If I didn’t use Wi-Fi I would stay elsewhere.
We have stayed here several times in the past and will return in the future if we return to gamble. After reading other reviews here are my comments. Once in the past we had a site that had a sewer smell. You will notice the smell in certain areas if you walk thru the park. I suspect this comes from individual camper’s poor sewer connection but can not prove it. Not sure how you avoid it unless you sign in, go to your site, and check it out. This is a larger park. They had us on far back, upper row but changed us to nearer the front at my request. Thinking back the next time I may request the top row as the shuttle buses are frequent and prompt. We were next to a restroom which did not bother us at all as hardly anyone used it. It also eliminated the chance of having noisy dogs on one side. Not all restrooms have a laundry so if that is high on your list pay attention to their park map. My wife heard the washers and dryers on the upper levels were newer. $1.25 to wash, $1.00 to dry. Check in early to avoid the goat rope later in the day. We checked in at 3PM and there was 4 clerks servicing the campers. Be sure to follow the signs and pull around to the side of the office. The Wi-Fi is purchased on line. One day is about $9, a week is $20 and there is monthly rate. We stayed 3 days so I bought a week. The speed was not the fastest I have had but it was very reliable. I was told the coverage is the same across the park as they have repeaters on every row and that is evident when you connect. In the past you had to pay $2/day for a modem connection in the office. We could have stayed here free for a week on a Players Club offering. I used $7 to cover the Wi-Fi.
This was our first visit, and we paid $21.50 for a pull through site, #5, near the entrance. We first selected a back in site, #17 at $18.50 which is at the far south end of the lot. I could not connect or even see the Ramada Wi-Fi here so we relocated to site 5, a pull through, and they charged me $3 more. Here the signal strength and speed is great. Avoid the back ins if you want Wi-Fi. There is NO charge for Wi-Fi. My 2008 Trailer Life guide said there was Wi-Fi $$. Park in a site you like and then go to the Cashiers cage inside the casino to pay. You have to leave a $5 deposit for a shower key. There is one for men and one for women. The deposit is returned when you return the key. The showers are top notch with a lockable door, a shower door, a mat, and a bench. There is no cable and NO over the air TV. This may be the best feature. It is very quiet. There was little traffic in the parking lot after dark. I would stay here again.
Other reviews have covered this park fairly well. We counted 115 sites, not 154. It is rather new, clean, well kept, and easy to get to off of 50 Highway. The lady at the desk worked with me to get me a site (128) that was half way between the Wi-Fi antenna on the front office and the showers/rec room located in the middle of the park. We did use our jacks to get level front to rear. There are pull through sites and back in sites. She gave us a pull through even tho our rig is only 29’ and we are not towing. Maybe that is why our fee was higher. We paid $26.71 with a Good Sam discount. The pull through sites are rather short. Most 5th wheelers or motorhomes towing will have to disconnect. There are no picnic tables. The nearby 18-hole golf course is virtually adjacent and the fees were $35 which includes the cart. Our schedule did not allow us to check out this bargain. My biggest complaint is the Wi-Fi. I had a strong signal and the speed was super at 5PM. By 6:30PM the connection was intermittent and I had to Repair several times. At 7:30PM the connectivity was zero. The next morning the Wi-Fi was still off the air. Since Wi-Fi and golf are high on my list I would look hard at other options but would give them a 2nd chance just to play the nearby golf course.
I was disappointed in this KOA Park because of the high fee during off season, the cable TV did not work, the site was very unlevel, and the showers lack a stool or chair. Then there is the experience with off season staff and hours. We arrived at 4PM and the office closed at 5PM. When the office is closed you can not access the laundry or game room. The young check in clerk did his best to get me near the Wi-Fi tower in the office. However, he directed me to a site that had the utilities on the passenger side, not the proper place, the driver’s side. This is weird setup only seen in older parks. There were only 3 other campers in this park so it was virtually empty. We relocated but he did the same thing again for a camper that came in just before 5PM. I asked the clerk about the cable, but he had no clue. There is no off the air TV here. After the office closed there were several transients that came in and used the showers. Yup, the ladies restroom had a lock but the code was advertised on a bulletin board for late arrivals along with the Wi-FI code. We camped here in a motor home and paid $33.66 for a w/e site. It was worth $15. The Wi-Fi was very good, but since we were very near the antenna and only had 3 bars I suspect some areas would not have good Wi-FI. This is probably a very good place to take the kids during the summer, but I would not pay their high fee again. If I want a “true camping” experience I will take a tent to the woods. I stay at private campgrounds such as KOA because I want a level place to park, hot clean showers, TV, and Wi-Fi.
We were attracted to this park because of its out of town location, that it had a Tavern, and a store with a deli. Only part of this is factual. The park has 10 or 12 back-in sites on the lake front, some on grass and some on gravel. The Tavern is real and on given nights the locals enjoy a few cool ones. The store and deli appeared to be no more than a few sacks of chips on a wall and a cooler with a few sodas, a loaf of bread and cheese. The restrooms are the biggest down side. There is one (1) for each sex. They are not heated and there is no shower curtain. The showers remind you of a forest service location but this is a Marina that caters to folks that fish. The plus side of this niche park is the rustic atmosphere with Wi-Fi. The lake views are nice, and there is TOTAL lack of sound at night. The wi-fi was 90% good with speed. After 8PM on the last night it slowed to a crawl. We were going to go to another park in town but returned to this one. There is also a question on the rates. When I first called the lady said it was $26/night. The total came to $28.99 which includes a glass of Bud. The 2nd night I paid in the office/store. The teenage girl told me the rate was $29. I told her of our last night’s stay and then she decided the total fee was $27 which included the Tax. This park is not for 80% of the people that travel. If you like to watch clouds, birds and listen to quiet, this is it, with Wi-Fi.
I agree with other reviewers comments. We paid $25.64. This park is convenient as it is 2 miles north of the cheese factory. It is small but can accommodate a few big rigs. Call first. There is some highway 101 noise. The Wi-Fi worked great. They do recycling which I support. One of the 2 dryers was broke so it took the wife more time than she likes to do the laundry. The office lady was up front about the dryer and worked with me on selecting the best site for our needs. The biggest down side is that the showers require Quarters ($.25). One Quarter gets you 3 minutes plus, 2 some more time and so on. I can understand why RV parks in high pedestrian traffic areas use coin operated showers but this park shouldn’t. The showers (2) were uni-sex but that is not the problem. IMHO coin operated showers are an indicator of a problem in what should be a standard RV campground. We checked on the fees for the nearby golf course and they were far too high. They wanted $56 for 2 to play 9 holes with a cart. Tomorrow we are playing a 3 and ½ star, 18 hole course in Florence, Ocean Dunes, for $60.
This is what I expect from a KOA RV Park and will pay a tad more to get what I expect. The park is very clean, well laid out, friendly staff, and the restrooms are top notch. At check in the guy was willing to work with me to find the site that fit my needs, not his. We had a back in site, near the office, near the restrooms, near the Wi-Fi towers, e/w only for $26.33 with their KOA card. It was quiet. Never heard a train. Best of all the Wi-Fi worked great. The OSU golf course is about 4 miles west and needs to be played. We will the next time we stop in this nice RV park.
After reading the 8/2009 review I had to try this park and am glad we did. However: the $22.50 is current as of July 2009, as a Stimulus price. Before that the sign board says it is $30 a day. The sign board also says you have to buy tokens for the shower at $2.00 for 5 minutes. The nice hosts said the tokens were free and gave us 2. This park is immaculate. It is connected with a city day use park, thus the need for coin operated showers. They were clean, done in industrial-grade and vandal resistant stainless steel. There were only 5 campers in the park so they were using only the handicapped shower. There are train tracks you go under but the only train we saw was a slow one leaving the city at 8AM and never tooted a horn. The park roads are asphalt with concrete walks and RV pads. There is a beach at the river, a boat ramp, and a small pier. The only downside for me was the slow Wi-Fi. It is free through the City of Lebanon but when you sign up you have options. The free Wi-Fi is for 10 hours a month and only at a speed of 156Kb or so, somewhat faster than a modem connection. It would also time out after 5 minutes of non-use. I would stay here again only if I was not doing some serious web surfing. Their website where you can get reservations forms is www.cl.leganon.or.us. You fax the reservation form to 541-258-4950. Better yet: just call 541-258-4917 to make reservations. A very quiet park. There is 1 tent site.
This park is mostly older but is decent for an over night stay. It is best described as having 3 areas. There are the permanent sites east of the office. There is the original back in sites among the tall trees. And now there are several VERY LONG modern pull through sites that have new power boxes, etc. Yes, the lady was very pleasant when I checked in. I mentioned Wi-Fi was important to me, and she registered with this. She assigned us the most distant site from the office and showers. This happens to be the shortest of the pull through's. I mentioned we were not towing, had a rather skimpy 29ft class A, and could handle a back in site. She was insistent that the site she had selected was the best for Wi-Fi which seems strange as the antenna was closer to the office. The park is reasonable clean, but the showers are somewhat small and narrow. The Wi-Fi did perform well. We stayed here in a motor home for $28.71 after discount. I would stay here again. Note: The 9 hole golf course in nearby Hinds is only 4 or so miles west. They want $12 to walk the 9 holes. You may have to walk as the office opens at Noon. It is rather rough but a good walk. Watch out for the Goose droppings.
Once again I was swayed by reviews for this park over others. Thank you folks for your honest reviews. RV parks located in rural areas or between towns rank high if I am doing an overnight stay. Check-in took a little longer than usual as we discussed how costly weddings are these days: his son, my grandson. I left the office with a bunch of lemon cucumbers from the park's garden and a promise to have a paper on my door step at 7AM. We could have picked green tomatoes but we are not into fried green tomatoes. The Wi-Fi is working super even at 7PM. The only constructive comment I could give the owner (and they do read these reviews) is to spend a few bucks on shower amenities. Some showers had a mat in the dressing area but no stool, while other showers had a stool but no mat. I selected a wider shower that was not marked Handicap, but could have been. It had no shower curtain and no soap tray on the wall. A few bucks here and there would make the showers a 10 instead of a 5. We paid $23.76 with the discount to camp here in a motorhome. Not only would I stay here again, I would schedule my travel time and stops to do so.
We were swayed very heavily by reviews for this park over the local KOA even though we have a KOA card. My focus was on the reports of good Wi-Fi. We paid $27 for a w/e site. If you are heading east/west on 84 this park is somewhat out of the way. It is a snap if you are driving 93. The owner and his wife spent a good 20 minutes giving us detailed directions on how to get to the WinnCo grocery store (neat) and then to their park. The turn right to follow 93 south where it joins 30 is an attention getter. We enjoyed this park. It was clean, quiet, and the Wi-Fi worked great. The hot tub was still in operation but we did not use it. We decided to stay over 1 more day as a storm was moving in. We played the Muni golf course nearby, got propane and gas. On second day the Wi-Fi was virtually useless from 5PM to 7:30PM. There were more campers in the park and more users. I called the office and she admitted the system can become overloaded. Other than that I would stay here again. My wife noted that the washers were $1 and dryers were $.75 which she says is a good bargain. If you are headed west continue on hwy 30 to see some great views of water falls and the Snake River.
Other reviews are very fair and accurate for this park. One might expect the freeway noise to be a problem, but it was not for the wife and me. I was impressed with the speed of the Wi-Fi and that the pool and hot tub was still open at this late date. The office said it would be open for “a couple of weeks”. I can understand how GPS might not be accurate for this location. It may be that Century Lane is not a public street but a private road. We were heading north on I-15 and got off at exit 343 and headed west on 2100 Street South per directions in our guide. Century Lane came up before I expected: well before the traffic light further west but in sight. So you turn left or south across 2 lanes of traffic, expecting to head south but as you cross the side walk you are facing a closed and locked gate that has a sign on it with Century Parks name. Even in my 29-footer I was wondering if my RV’s rear end was clearing the street. My wife noticed a sign to the left that indicate one was to turn more left and then right to get to the park. In short, you are almost making a U turn across 2100 south to get to the park. We would stay here again.
This has to be the oldest and worst KOA RV Park. I am amazed that it is still sanctioned by the KOA home office and system. The entrance to this park is quick, narrow, and not RV friendly. We arrived at 3PM and the office was closed. See us at 4PM. There was the usual instructions and map to select your own site, etc. We wanted an electric only site for our 29 foot Class A which was hard to find as many of the electric boxes had no plug in connectors. All were very short or had overlapping trees. How often have you had to go from site to site with a digital voltmeter trying to find a place to camp? We finally found one but had to raise the front end 5 inches to get level. I could get connected with the park’s wi-fi but did not have the code word. Some one opened the office at 4PM, but they were fill ins for the owners who were at the football game. They fed the ducks that dirtied the entrance and took our money. Later, after spending an hour trying to get connected I ask about the wi-fi. Their answer was to bring your box down to the office and try it. We are less than 40 yards from the front office. While I write this we see several big rigs, towing, come in and are lucky to find a way to turn and exit. I would not stay here again.
The RV Park has not changed much since we first stayed there 1 night in 2000 for $14. However they do have a new hotel and fuel center. How they can fill a hotel in the middle of no where, with out golf course or lake is a question but not for discussion here. The RV Park is very good as others have noted. The sites I have had are not level but are easily leveled up. There can be a communication problem with the staff at check in. I ask for and got an electric/water site with good Wi-Fi access. I ask if there was a Good Sam discount but the replay was NO. However, the final fee was $20.79 with a 10% discount. I spent an hour trying to get on the Internet. The signal strength and speed was good but the connectivity was the pits. I finally called the office and inquired but the lady had no idea what the problem was or what to do. 5 minutes after my call the Wi-Fi was working very good. I will stay there again if I happen to be in the area late, but will be aware.
This park is much the same as it has been the last 15 years with 2 exceptions. The fee is now $20 but they have Wi-Fi. The manager (Pop) down plays the reliability of the Wi-Fi if you ask him. We were in the middle of the park on this visit and had excellent signal strength, speed, and connectivity. In the past there were problems with the power at some sites. If you need 50amps be sure to state so when making a reservation. This is not a destination resort but a good buy for an overnight stay.
This is the RV Park at Casino Hollywood, on the San Felipe Indian Reservation, located about half way between Albuquerque and Santa Fe, NM on I-25. There is easy access from Interstate 25 and there is a large travel center (gas station) in addition to the casino. The RV Park is large with plenty of room to navigate, is graveled, is fairly level, and has modern 30 and 50 amp service at all sites. While there are no sewer hookups or water at the sites there are 2 dump stations with water. The Wi-Fi reception and speed is very good. As far as I know it is first come first serve but check with the casino. There is a race track here so on special occasions it may have more than the two here tonight. Select a site and then register inside the casino. After paying a security guard will unlock the power box. San Felipe has a no alcohol policy. The casino is small compared to those in Albuquerque but has all the usual stuff. While they advertise $3 craps, it is higher after 4pm on weekends, if they have enough shooters. The evening buffet, $10, was modest but in keeping with the crowd. The Chili Reyanos were exceptionally good, better than 90% of restaurants, with a firm crisp crust. This is a nice, dark, and quiet park with abundance of security. If you can live with out showers, this is a great over nighter.
We have stayed here 2 times in the last 30 days, just by chance, not design. The $28 is for water/electric with the KOA discount plus taxes. Check-in staff is great. They trust you, as an adult, to find and park in your site after they mark up the site map. Others have commented on all the features such as the rec room, etc. I would like to comment on the restrooms, particularly the showers, which should be the Gold Standard for all other RV Parks to follow. The showers stalls are large and have an abundance of hot water and a nice shower head. There is dressing area with a door proving separation from the main part of the restroom. There is a very good shower curtain. There are adequate hooks for hanging towels, and clothes. There is a bench to sit on while putting on your shoes. But best of all, there is a clean plastic web mat in the shower and a clean cloth rug in the dressing area. The train tracks were no problem during our stays. Walking access to the adjacent mall is a plus in our book. Be vigilant at the campground entrance. While it is directly off Highway 50, it is on a curve in local street from the mall. Near by Rocky Ford and La Junta have 9 hole hold courses. $32 for 9 holes riding at Rocky Ford, a gold course built by the WPA in the 1920's.
Best to arrive no later than 4pm as this is a one man operation. I give the owner credit; he is a nice guy but needs help between 4 and 6 PM. He registers a guest, locks the door, and escorts the guest to his site. Access to the site may be evident on the campground map, and there may be 3 others waiting to register, but this is the way it is done. If I can find my way to the WalMart in North Platte, I can find my camp site here. I agree with previous comments about the showers. The shower stall is large but there is no dressing area. You are charged KOA rates but no KOA quality here. No competition nearby. There is a nearby golf course so I would stop again.
Strange set up. The pool is still closed or non-op but the Wi-Fi is good. The lower level sites, $24, are many but do not have cable and is far from the remotely located shower. The upper level has some backend sites that appear to be taken by permanents. There are 10 to 15 pull thru, full hookup. $27 with discount. The first two 69 and 70 are reserved for big rigs, and the owner refused to rent me one. The others have a severe dip where most rigs will drag. Once in the site they are reasonably level. Restrooms and showers were reasonably clean for a facility such as this. There is walking access to a restaurant we did not use. I suggest you drive by or through this campground before signing up. Check out the site that meets your needs. You have to register at the American Motel or across the street at the Sioux Motel, depending tine of day and who showed up for work. This is not a destination resort but is adequate for an over nighter, considering the options.
This is the quietest KOA I have been in. The usual train track must be miles away! The freeway, a mile away, is not a problem. Midweek there are no other campers in this park that is dedicated to annual lot holders. It must be a hoot on holidays. I am trying to find a way to post that the RV park in the Winni-Vegas Casino, Solon, IA is still in operation. $7 a night which has not changed since we were there in 1999.
