This is a nice park, BUT there are no pull throughs. The same at Hollywood Casino and campground. This is a huge problem if you are in a motorhome, which requires unhooking, removing Protect-A-Tow, etc. Also, you have to check in at the hotel desk. We had driven for 500 miles, then had to park in a crowded parking lot, with really no RV parking, then wait at least an hour in line to get a site. From now on, we are staying elsewhere.
This is a very nice and clean park. It is a short distance from the interstate. It is a fairly new park, so it is not in Trailer Life or Woodall's. We arrived at Baileyton a bit early, saw it, and stayed a night. When you are planning your trip you will probably need to look for it. Very easy to get Satellite. Very nice owners. We would definitely stay at this park again.
Very neat and clean park. There is absolutely no problem getting satellite with your dome. We didn't tow a vehicle this time, and the only place to eat was at the Casino restaurant which was not very good, and very expensive. The shuttle service is excellent, and the staff were friendly. We would stay here again.
When you are looking for the road for this look for the Kentucky Fried Chicken and Taco Bell sign. The road is squeezed in between the two signs. There is a very small KOA sign. Thankfully, we were not towing, so after we missed it we were able to turn around about a half mile down the road. We agree with the above posts about it being up a hill, down a hill, and curved. Over all it is a nice park and we would stay at this park again.
If a family is looking for a "Campground" to ride bikes, swing on swings', this is (not) for this type family. This is a place to park your RV and be able to afford to visit one of America's greatest cities. We only hope that this little section of pavement with water and electric hook ups will never be bull dozed down, and high rise buildings built on top of it. We were with a Rally so the park was full, but it did seem that spaces became available throughout the week we were there. You cannot ask for nicer staff. They help people from distant states feel welcome to New Jersey and NYC. We will definitely visit Liberty Harbor again, and hope this park will always be available for RV'ers.
We stayed here going to NYC, and back from NYC. We really enjoyed being able to order hot meals from the store. We did not tow our SUV on this trip, and their food is delicious, and delivered hot. It is also a reasonable price. There is limited cable, and you will need to ask for a space where you can use your satellite. The down side (and we seem to be finding this at most of the parks we stayed in on the way to and from New York) is there were no trash barrels, and no trash pick up. We stayed at this park 4 days going, and 6 days returning. It rained for about 4 days, and with no tow vehicle we had to keep the trash in our motorhome, until we could catch a break in the weather to walk our trash a pretty far distance to the dumpster. It was especially difficult because we pick up our dog's waste, and then we have no place to put it. I did mention this to the manager, as the only real downside to staying there, but she didn't seem very concerned about it. We will stay here again if we are towing a vehicle. You will not find better fried chicken anywhere.
It was very difficult to get through the trees to park, and it was very hard to see the road because it was covered with so many leaves (first part of Sept). It was pretty hard to squeeze in between so many trees. It is an older, former KOA. This park has very limited Cable TV, and it is virtually impossible to use a Dome Satellite. When you are driving into this campground you will be on a very curvy road. Be VERY careful to watch for on coming traffic/rigs. Our Garmin GPS brought us to the entrance, but entrance is on left not on right. The staff were very nice, but it was very difficult to navigate through the trees, and crowded with trees, so most likely we would not stay at this campground again.
We agree with the above reviews regarding interior roads being rough, and very little lighting. Very loud highway noise. The spaces were very tight (we have 4 slides), with dense trees. The staff were not friendly. We won't stay here again.
This is a very friendly well kept park. It is very big rig friendly. There was a Newmar Rally being held, and it looked as though everyone was having a good time. We want to rent a party barge next time and see Lake Catherine. There is a lot to do in Hot Springs. There's Historical Bath House Row, The Belle of Hot Springs on Lake Hamilton, The Alligator Farm, Oaklawn Race Track and Casino. We highly recommend this park, and plan on going back.
We really liked this park. It was very well kept. It was very easy to get into. Easy access off the free way with good interior roads. We will definitely stay there again. Big Rig friendly. The owners were very accommodating and nice.
A very nice park when you get there, but be VERY CAREFUL going up a very curvy, paved road. There are turns where you must be careful to look ahead of you as far as possible. I think we'll unhook our toad at the bottom of the hill when we stay there again. I'll probably follow our toad up the hill. There is no way two meeting RV's could drive on that narrow, winding road. Still, it is a very nice park with beautiful mountain views.
This is the third time we have stayed there. It is under new management, and they were friendly. Lake Hamilton is a fun lake with beautiful homes. This park is close to Hot Springs, and really good restaurants. There is a good seafood/Cajun restaurant within walking distance. It is safe to turn into, and the interior roads are good. There is not much shade, but there are trees planted that have grown a lot since we stayed there a few years ago.
It is over priced and too crowded. Big Rigs can get in certain spots. The service road needs repair/ruts. It is a pretty park, but we had problems getting a signal with our Dome. (we prefer Direct TV over cable) It is close to town, and the owners are friendly. We thought it a bit crowded and probably won't stay there again.
This is a very nice, clean park with very friendly, accommodating park attendants. The roads are well maintained. We were not able to get antenna or satellite TV, and this is probably because of the trees. Other than not being able to get many channels (to watch football) we will definitely stay at Sherling again. You just won't find nicer park staff anywhere.
This is a very crowded park. We asked for an easy in and easy out space because we were only staying for the night. It seemed that the owner/manager went out of his way to make sure that we parked our 40' rig in the tightest space he had. He was very unfriendly. It is just not big rig friendly. The interior roads were not good, and way too many big trees. We won't ever stay at this campground again.
This RV park is fine for overnight stops right off the Interstate. We wish there were more like them. No frills, reasonably priced, and safe. We hooked up to water and electricity, and got a good nights sleep before going on to Alabama the next day. As with a lot of RV parks that charge much more, they could improve the parking spaces and interior roads. At least there was so grass. We'd stop there going back to southern Florida. In fact, we were relieved this park was there.
This park is about 10 miles from Charleston. We were in space P3, which is at the front of the park. There are no trees in the front, and we caught full, direct sun through our windshield virtually all day. That was not the owner's fault, and we did ask for a spot where we could get satellite. The park does not have cable. For some reason, we could get Fox very clear on our antenna, but not ABC, NBC, or CBS. If you have a tripod then we recommend you ask for a spot in the back. It is very shady, and very pretty. There is no way could we have survived the heat in the summer. Their address did not show up on our GPS, and we suggest you call ahead, they are on a very busy highway, and we had to turn in front of very heavy traffic. If you love seafood, Gilligans is great. Its about .4 miles from the park. We made ourselves sick on steamed oysters. We would definitely return to this park, but would take our tripod and not use our Winegard.
We stayed one night, and moved over to another park to save over $20.00 a night. Their winter rates are a bit too high, since even in Florida, it is too cold to walk or swim in the Ocean. We believe their park would stay full year round if their rates weren't so high in the off season. If we did stay here again, in order to get full benefit, we'd go back in warmer weather. We stayed in another nice park (in St. Augustine) for $32.00 a night. If you're in St Augustine to go to the beach, this is a good park, but if you're here to tour St. Augustine, there are a couple of other parks that are as nice for less money.
We liked this park very much. It is a nice place to stay, to visit St. Augustine. There is no pool, but since we were here to see the surrounding area, that was not a detriment to us. The office (we are not sure if they were the owners) were very helpful, and welcoming. They have a nice laundry. Their address does not show up on our GPS, but if you put in Hilltop, it will take you right to the campground. (actually, coming from the north on 95) We would definitely stay at Indian Forrest again. It is reasonably priced. We stayed one night at a park that charged 55.00 and moved to save $20 a night. Even in Florida, it's really too cold to pay that much to stay near the beach.
We enjoyed staying in this park. The only downside is they don't allow you to use your washer/dryer. This was inconvenient since we stayed over a week. It would not keep us from not staying there again though. If you love seafood, The Shell House is great, and so is Love's Seafood. The owner's of the park recommended these two restaurants, and we ended up going to both twice. All in all, a nice park, just make sure you're up with your laundry before you get there.
They have really done a good job on repairs since the hurricane caused such devastation. The park was thick with foliage before, and it will take many years for the trees and foliage to come back. That said, it is a very nice park. The roads are good, and the spaces are paved. During the winter the park is full of snowbirds. During the summer it is packed, and it seems impossible to get a reservation there when school is out.
OK for an over night stay. It is very clean. The sites are sand and grass, but level, and any size rig will fit. Be sure and ask for an open space so you can use your satellite. (If you don't have a tripod). There is virtually no antenna reception. Very reasonable--$14.00. We would stay here again.
We really enjoyed our stay in this park. The interior roads were in excellent condition, and the camp spaces were very level. There is a good place to walk your dog, and places to dispose of the waste. The owners are very nice, and they have a great gift shop. We bought some Christmas gifts there. We were in Lubbock visiting my brother and his family, so anyone visiting Lubbock will find this rv park very convenient. We will definitely go back to this park.
If you are using a GPS it is probably a good idea to call ahead, because Andrea, or someone working in the office can give you better directions to get to the park. Coming down 8th street is creepy. (as another member posted that they almost turned around). We really enjoyed staying in this park. We were on a concrete pad, with plenty of room for our toad. They have worked on their Wi-Fi, and we didn't have any problems. We also had great satellite and antenna reception. If camping by the river in summer, we definitely recommend plenty of insect repellent. (this is a common problem all over Arkansas). We plan to return there sometime.
The interior roads are badly in need of work. The spaces are very unlevel, so more difficult for big rigs to level up. The electricity went off at 3:00 a.m, and it was necessary to use our generator until daylight. We were ready to leave. The money spent on the golf course would be better spent repairing the interior roads, leveling the spaces, and upgrading the hook ups. We wouldn't stay there again.
Hampton is a small town near El Dorado, Fordyce, and Camden, Arkansas. It is not off a major highway, but if you are traveling in that area, it's a nice little campground. While there, we drove to Camden and visited some Civil War sites and went deer hunting. We used it as a base, and were not expecting to "camp" there. (although you could if you wanted BUT,--no picnic tables or fire rings though. We camped there three nights over Thanksgiving, and there were several 5th wheels and Travel Trailers that were there for deer hunting. Deer hunting is a huge sport in this area, this time of year. We felt very comfortable there in our 40' motor home. The owners were very accommodating. We wish there were more of these campgrounds along the roads in America. There are no cabins, pools, rental bicycles etc, but it's a nice place to park, and the price is fair for what you get. They had a very nice laundry room. This is a "no frills" park, but if you get down that way, it's a good place for any type RV.
This is a fairly new park on a really beautiful lake. We had relatives with us, and they loved renting a boat and seeing all the beautiful homes on Lake Hamilton. Their children enjoyed the pool. Trees have been planted, and someday there will be some shade. The spaces are close together, but we were gone a lot and not really "camping". One can go boating, swimming, or fishing. This park is close to all the Hot Springs attractions, and there are some really good restaurants close by. The office workers were very nice people. We didn't meet the owner. When we have relatives in town again, we'll go back there.
This is a lovely park and the owners are very nice. They were very accommodating. We stayed a week, and enjoyed it very much. You probably will not be able to use your dome satellite, but they have good cable. Their Wi-Fi is very good also. The only suggestion we would make is to be VERY careful making the turn into the park. Also, we missed the left turn and ended up driving our 40' rig through Gatlinburg. Don't do that, VERY hard. Tennessee beat Arkansas that week, and they didn't even rub it in. We would definitely stay here again.
While traveling on the road toward Greta, we called and the office rep. said, "you better go ahead and make a reservation just to be safe, it is $50.00, and if you don't arrive, we will not remove it from your Visa". "We are having a rally". Considering that we weren't familiar with the area, and they were the only CG in Trailer Life, we said "ok". We got there, and close by there was another campground that would have been $28.00. I guess they snag them over the phone whenever possible. I guess they need to pay for all those cabins and swing sets, but paying over $50.00 for a KOA campground in an area with no attractions is, in our opinion, a rip off. It was an average park by a cow pasture. We would not stay there again.
We stayed on the top level, and if you are planning on staying there in a motor home, ask for the top level. Behind the office/giftshop, the lower roads are very curvy and have ruts. The roads are badly in need of work. As long as we could stay on the top level, we might stay there again. During the summer heat it would be brutal because there is no shade on the top level. She has a very nice gift shop. It is convenient to all the local attractions.
This campground is best suited for 5th wheels and travel trailers. As another member posted, it is really TIGHT fit for motor homes. We have a 40' and it was difficult to make the turns, and it was very tight. There are so many trees we couldn't get any tv reception from satellite or antenna. The owners are very nice people. We believe if they would thin out some trees, and improve some of interior roads it would be better. Because of the above we would not stay there again.
