Nothing spectacular about this park. Handy to downtown. 25+ local OTA TV channels available. Good Verizon 4G signal in the area. Pool was closed. Would use it again for overnight. Rate was for off season, 50A.
Nice park. A better than an average overnight park. Most sites are level. Wi-Fi and cable TV included in rate. I hesitate to use the word FREE. Friendly staff. Plenty of sight seeing in the area. Across the Interstate from the Georgia National Fairgrounds. Check out Yoders' (in Perry) for their sandwiches. Will stop again.
This is a very nice park as others have stated. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Outside of the park there are not a lot of attractions. Jasper is a very small town with not a lot to see or do. The next biggest town is Live Oak (WalMart, Lowes) a museum and some antique stores. IMHO a 'resort' should have enough activities to keep it's guests with more things to do and not enough time to do them. They did away with PA in favor of their own program, not really interested as we probably won't return.
Nice park. Roads are a bit narrow. Check your site for low branches and lots of trees. Rate is for Passport America so you get the small, narrow sites. The park is about halfway between Ocala and Gainesville for your shopping. No 4G signal in the area. We would return again.
We stayed in Loop A the first week, some huge sites (actually double). Extended our stay for another week and had to move within the same loop, smaller site. The settling problems as others have mentioned seems to have gone away. Lots of activities to do within the Park. Great area to explore also. Most sites satellite TV worked but do ask to see the site first as there are pine trees. Will return if we are in the area again. There was a hint that the rates might go up.
Nothing has changed since my review in October (see below) except the Terrible's Cowboy sign along side the freeway is gone. No more landmark. I think the casino is re-branding itself. The old Terrible's casino chips will no longer usable either.
Nice park. Sites are rather small for the money. But you are across the street from the beach. Wi-Fi was super quick. All facilities were functioning. Being on the 'Island' the park is rather flat so there was no place for 2.5" of rain to go. Sites were pretty sloppy. Lots of activities for the small campers. Probably won't be back.
What a great park. Oilfield workers are gone now. Plenty of sites available. Full hookups. Self-check in. Passport America rate is good for as long as your stay. Other discounts available too. Check with Park Host for Wi-Fi code, varies per site. Paved roads and sites. Picnic tables at sites. Two shelters available for use ($$). Be sure to visit the Museum and San Augustine. Plenty of history in this small town.
This is an Encore park so there is a $3.00/day 'Resort Fee' for daily rentals. This is a 'Winter Texan' destination park. Great staff, new park manager who is making needed repairs and upgrades. Activity director who has planned lots of activities. Monthly rentals pay electricity which are THE cheapest rates in the Valley...about.08/kwh. Propane delivery to site (Hino Gas). Close to all amenities in Harlingen including the new Bass Pro Shop. Wi-Fi thru Tengo.
We chose this park because of the oak trees and large sites. Most of the roads WERE blacktop but are now mostly gravel. Dusty w/no rain and sloppy when it rains. The original owner received it back from bankruptcy and is trying to make long needed repairs. Wi-Fi is only to about half the park. There are limited activities. The rate is for Passport America $17.50/night. Given it's shortcomings we will return.
We were put into the older part of the 'Resort' I am assuming because we were here for only a few nights and used the PA discount. Another 'Resort Park' that has a nice website and brochures but really lacks when you see it in person. The part we were in is definitely showing its age. Railings at the slabs were falling apart, blacktop roads were deteriorating, exposed electrical piping,etc. The majority of the sites in this part are permanents and those are showing their age also. The center part of the park consists of 'cottage rentals' up front and some VERY rundown mobile homes in the back. Wi-Fi was OK (Tengo), phone tethering was just as quick. Good cable TV channels. I wouldn't have paid more than the Passport America rate. Won't return.
No need to repeat what others have said. This is a great park. Wi-Fi is great. We got more TV channels from the OTA antenna. Most of the noise comes from NE 63rd St which is in front of the park. Small store with some RV stuff, book exchange, DVDs. Laundry facilities, storm shelter, propane. Make sure to see the Memorial/museum in town.
It is OK for overnight. There is no wi-fi even with a Crane Wi-Fi antenna. I Tethered AN android phone to laptop with T-Mobile. There are no signs to RV park, it is obvious though. Pick a site, jot down site # and RV plate number and hike, bike, drive, walk (or call shuttle) to Casino entrance/valet parking. I picked up three digital tv stations using RVs antenna.
Nothing really spectacular about the park, but it is a nice place to stay for a few nights. Right now there are a few permanents and a few other RVer's, so it is quiet. Pool has re-opened (based on an above post). Sites are flat and gravel. Most are pull through and 50 amp. FYI-check-in is at the liquor store. We would stay here again.
We stayed here in conjunction with a Rally. The grounds are nice and well kept. Sites are adequate, parked on gravel. Wi-Fi is best early morning but there also 300 rigs here so that might slow down connection speeds. The trains! Rumbling through day and night, loud horns! We would have left after the first night had we not been here for the rally. Convenient to attractions, but I would not return do to the excessive train noise, especially at night.
Passport America rate for E/W. Very nice park off the freeway but no noise. Wi-Fi works great. T-Mobile signal not too good though. High water pressure so make sure you have a regulator. Interior roads are gravel, some of the FHU sites have concrete pads for parking. Lots of tent sites, some walking trails through out the wooded areas. We are stopping here again on our way back home!
Nice park. They must have improved the Wi-Fi. We watched a movie on Hulu (w/no buffering). Pet friendly. There can be long lines at the dump station so plan ahead. Firewood available. Nice views of Lake Superior. Boat launch nearby.
The Marina is getting prepared to build a 9 story hotel, so the permanent showers and restrooms are no longer operable. The temp facilities are portable toilets and showers. Even though you are parked on blacktop, you can't beat the location. There is a boat ramp available. Wi-Fi is $2.00 per night. We used T-Mobile tethered to laptop for internet, not blazing speed, but worked. We've parked (not camped) here before and WILL return.
Very nice park. We were here early in the season, so the pool was not open. Has a children's playground, nice store with antiques for sale. Had no problem parking at the site. Trees were trimmed properly. Had paved roads and gravel sites that are fairly level. TV reception is adequate, Wi-Fi is good (using it right now). Will return.
OK park for overnight. Gravel roads. Lot of perms in back of park. It was a quiet Saturday evening, but on Sunday morning at 7 AM the wrenching started next door at the trucking firm. The impact wrenches from truck repairs was very loud. Pool was not open yet.
We stayed here as Escapee members so we were given the lower rate plus electricity. We arrived after the main office closed and were helped by a few of the nearby RVers. Nice park but we just over night. Will return for a longer stay.
We stayed for the month, hence the $27 rate. The rates are increasing substantially for 2011/12. $49.50 per night, $275/week and $975/month. This is a very nice park, clean, well run and (dog) friendly. There is a fair amount of vehicle traffic if you are set up on Doud St or Hively St, both connect to U.S.41 from the residential neighborhood. The west end of the park is less than two blocks from US 41 so there IS noise from the high way as well as the car dealership(s). The park is close to many things to see and do as others have posted. Given the huge rate increase, it is unlikely we will stay here again.
