Wow! This is a great place to stay. All the campers here were very friendly. We came in on Christmas eve and were invited to a Christmas dinner the next day. Looks like management's strategy is to convert the property from RV sites to villas (houses small enough to fit on one or two RV sites). About 10 percent of sites already have villas on them. Fortunately the staff was off for the holiday so we had no sales pitch. Still one of the best places we have stayed. Excellent facilities. Would certainly camp here again.

This park is typical of RV parks in the west - all gravel and no shade, but we were impressed by the reception we received from the owners. We made a reservation over the phone and the whole process was professional friendly and helpful. When we arrived the great service continued. After check in we were escorted to our site by the owner. The park is clean and the hookups are modern. We stayed over night here on our way to California and would definitely stay here again.

The campground in this Texas state park shows some signs of age. Most sites have 30 amp service with 50 amps being available at a few. All the sites are gravel. Many, but not all, are level. Most have adequate clearance for big rigs. We found the staff very friendly and helpful, but were a little put off by the $6.00 daily entrance fee we had to pay (thus the $34.00 nightly fee). This park sustained damage from the 2013 Halloween flood. The visitors center is closed due to flooding and may be closed for some time. The short Rock Shelter trail is closed. The longer Homestead and Onion Creek trails are both open. Still there is plenty to do in the park and you can't beat the location so close to Austin.

This campground is good for an over night stop-over, or as a base for visiting the Biloxi-Gulfport area, but I wouldn't want to spend a lot of time just hanging around the campground. The grounds are clean and uncluttered, but there's no privacy and the I-10 noise is always noticeable inside, and downright loud outside. We stayed here over night on a trip west and would use this park again for the same purpose.

What a great place to camp. I can't add much to the previous reviews, except that we noticed a strong sewer odor in parts of the new area. Not sure if it is always that way or they were just cleaning something out. Anyway, it lingered all night. AT&T wireless service was good with three bars of LTE coverage. Data service worked great.

This is a good park for an overnight stay. It is located close to I-40 so there is some road noise, but with the air conditioners running, we didn't notice it inside. Staff was friendly and helpful. We were escorted to our site. Sites were adequate, but nothing to brag about. Some had picnic tables, but ours didn't. Plenty of room for our toad, and the utilities were located so that we didn't have to unhook. WiFi and cable TV worked great. We would stay here again.

The Rocky Point campground at Santa Rosa Lake State Park has two loops. All 23 sites in Loop A have 30 amp electric, but only sites 1 through 9 have water. There is a water faucet across from the bath house that you can use to fill your rig before going to your site. There is no drinking water at the dump station. Loop B (closed in winter) has no utilities. When we arrived we had difficulty finding site numbers until we realized they are on the picnic table supports. If you like camping in the high desert in its natural state, this is your place. Do not expect green manicured lawns. Didn't see much of the campground host. If we came this way again and were looking for an overnight stay, we would probably stay nearer to the interstate.

This is an older park, but clean and well maintained. "Pop" checked us in. He took extra time to tell us about area attractions and good places to eat. The sites are paved with gravel between. The utilities are located so that it is necessary to unhook your toad and park it in front of your rig. No cable TV, but the Wi-Fi works very well. This was an overnight stop for us, but we would camp here again.

This is a nice park with a helpful and friendly staff. I just can't rate this as high as the other reviewers for the following reasons. The pull-through site was long enough for my 32 foot motorhome, but that didn't leave much room for my toad. Had to park it sideways behind the motorhome. The whole thing, including the access road, was gravel except for a small patch of grass between sites. I guess gravel is the norm for Moab. The other campgrounds didn't look much better. I guess I am just spoiled by state parks and Corps of Engineers parks where you have some space and privacy between sites. On the positive side, the Wi-Fi worked very well and the cable had lots of channels. All in all, compared to the other campgrounds in Moab, it was a good place to stay for a few days and explore the Canyon-lands.

This park has gravel interior roads and sites. Only one site (16) has 50 amp service. The host was friendly and helpful. Internet only works in the office and is slow. The campground is adjacent to a trailer park. Residents of the trailer park drive through the campground to get in and out making for unnecessary traffic, since they have their own entrance. Noticeable noise from truck traffic on the highway at night, but if you are running your air conditioner, it probably wouldn't be a problem. This park is OK for an overnight stay.

We camped here because we checked ahead and found the Watchman campground at Zion National park was full. We used our toad to go to Zion. Because we were coming from the west, this saved us gas by not driving the rig another 30 miles into the park and back again. We found a clean and well maintained campground, with good access to Zion. Interior roads and sites are paved and each site has a covered picnic table on a cement pad. There is no shade here, but in March that didn’t matter. This was a great place to stay for a few days.

Beautiful and very well manicured resort. This place has all the amenities you would want. Nightly rate is based on the weekly rate we paid, including taxes, for an upgraded site. Unlike the previous reviewer, we were given a certificate for free internet service. The resort only accepts class A motorhomes longer than 25 feet. There are five swimming pools on the property, a clubhouse, tennis courts and putting greens. The place is gated with 24 hour security. Everyone is friendly and the staff is very helpful. We were escorted to our site. We used the laundry. It was spotless. If you want to pay extra, services are available to wash/wax your rig on site. They also have maid service to clean the interior. You couldn't ask for anything better.

This is an older park with lots of long term/seasonal residents, but it is well maintained. The staff is friendly and very helpful. We were escorted to our site. There are lots of big pine trees in the campground, so satellite reception might be a problem. There is no cable TV and we could pick up only a few on-air channels. The campground is quiet at night with no road noise at our campsite. It was very windy when we were here, but the pines kept the wind down to almost nothing in the campground. The campground does not accept credit cards. The park advertises itself as an adult community, so they probably cater mainly to retirees like us. We would stay here again.

This is an old, run down park that needs an upgrade. Most of the sites are occupied by long term residents in run down trailers. However, it is ok for an overnight stay. The park has shade trees and is quiet at night with not much highway noise, even though it is near the interstate. We didn't see many of the residents. Cable TV works and the water is chlorinated. Apparently they are on city water. The WiFi connected but it was slow. The water, sewer and electric were located at the back of the pull-through site, so we had to unhook our toad and drive it around to the front so it wouldn't block the road. Not a great place, but we would probably stop overnight here if we came this way again.

After staying at a string of Corps of Engineers campgrounds, this was a bit of a letdown. It's a good place for an overnight stop. All sites are pull-through and level with sufficient room between sites. The campground is clean and well maintained and the Wi-Fi works good. The campground is far enough off the highway so that the noise is hardly noticeable, but it's a typical along-the-road campground, with rows of sites with no real shade, just sitting there in the middle of the west Texas scrub brush. However, with that said, if we came this way again, we would probably stop here overnight.

Great place to camp. We were traveling west on I-20, so it was a little out of our way, but definitely worth it. Stayed 2 days and would have stayed longer except we had to keep to a schedule to get to a trade show. Can't add much to the previous reviews. If you are ever in this part of Texas, don't miss this campground.

Price reflects the Senior Pass discount. Sites 1 through 27 are on the Loblolly Loop. This loop is on an inlet to the lake and the sites have a limited view of the lake. Sites 28 through 50 are in the Black Gum Loop and have a much better view of the lake. We camped at site #2. Sites 2 and 4 have no trees and are good for satellite reception. The other sites on our loop were under big trees. I can't say enough about the campground hosts. Not only were they helpful and friendly, but they went out of their way, not once but twice, to warn us about impending severe weather and told us where to go and what to do if there was a tornado warning. Fortunately none came our way. Great place. We would like to come back and camp here again.

This campground recently reopened after being closed for 10 years. The interior roads and sites have been refurbished, as well as all the hookups. Located under large shade trees, all sites are paved and have full hookups with 50 amp service, plus free cable TV. The campground is part of Tanglewood Park, an 1,100 acre county park that includes two golf courses, a driving range, swimming pool, tennis, horseback riding stables, hiking and mountain bike trails and two fishing lakes. Campers may enter the park without paying the $2.00 entrance fee, but must pay for other activities. The campground is quiet and has some restrictions. For example, motorcycles and golf carts are not allowed. Also no camp fires, but there is a “community” fire ring at the picnic shelter. The restroom and shower facilities were not refurbished, but are very clean and smell fresh. The campground hosts were very friendly and helpful. Registration office is open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. 7 days a week. Located close to I-40 Exit 182.

This is clean, well maintained campground with plenty of room between sites. The hosts were helpful and friendly. Interior roads and sites are paved. The campground is located under a dense forest canopy probably making satellite reception difficult. Since the campground is located in a narrow canyon, there is no off-the-air TV or AT&T cell service (probably no others either), so bring a good book. Its like you are in the middle of nowhere, but you are only a few miles from town. All the sites are level and most will accommodate a large RV. Only a few sites have electric. The whole campground is level, making casual bike riding enjoyable. A trout stream runs next to the campground and many sites face the stream. We used our Senior Pass for a 50% discount off the regular $20 fee plus $5 for electric. We enjoyed our stay and would camp here again.

This is a clean, well maintained park with paved interior roads and gravel sites. The campground hosts were helpful and very friendly. All sites have level areas, but some are only large enough for a tent or pop-up trailer. Less than half the sites have a large enough level area to accommodate a large RV. The park is located in the Pisgah National Forest and all site are shaded, probably making satellite reception difficult. There is a small lake with a sandy beach within walking distance. The park is hilly and there are lots of hiking and biking trails. The area attracts mountain bike riders who ride the Bent Creek area trails, however casual bike riders may not find it enjoyable. The dump station has a tight turn that should be fixed. We had to unhook our towed vehicle to make it through. Hosts told us the area gets busy on weekends, but we camped mid week in May and the park was only about 10% full. We used our Senior Pass for a 50% discount off the $20 fee, plus an extra $5 for electric. We would camp here again.

This is a US Army Corps of Engineers campground located on Percy Priest Lake just east of Nashville. This is a clean, well laid out campground with paved interior roads. The roads are a little tight, but we had no trouble maneuvering our 32-foot motorhome with a towed vehicle. Sites are paved and mostly level. Sites have water and electric, most are 50 amp and others 30 amp. A dump station is located at the campground entrance, with facilities for dumping on either side of your rig. The campground host was friendly and helpful. This campground is a few miles off I-40, but little hard to find. I prefer to use my brain to navigate, but here I used my GPS to get in and back out again. The rate reflects the Senior Pass rate. We would stay here again.

We arrived here on a Saturday evening after Labor Day with no reservation: a big mistake. This campground fills up on weekends. We had to settle for one of the last dry camping sites that would accommodate our 32-foot motorhome. The host was very helpful in accommodating us. We moved to an electric only site the next day. Potable water is available at the dump station and at various locations throughout the campground. Interior roads are paved and sites have cement pads. Most picnic tables are also on cement pads. There are three loops. Two of them have a limited turning radius. Negotiating them with a towed vehicle or a trailer is impossible. In spite of being busy, this is a very nice campground. We would camp here again. The rate reflects the cost for a site with electricity.

We stayed at the Lakeview Campground two nights while visiting Lincoln. This is a quiet, clean and spacious campground. No highway noise. Interior roads and sites are paved. There is plenty of space between sites. Grass is green, thick and mowed. Some picnic tables are on cement pads. There are 67 sites with electricity. Sites 39-52 and 71-73 have 50 amp service, others have 30 amp service. Potable water is available at the campground entrance and at the dump station located at the Pawnee SRA headquarters about a mile away. This campground is near a lake. The park ranger told us the campground fills up on Nebraska football weekends. We rated this campground compared to other state parks having limited facilities. We would stay here again.

This is a great campground for an overnight stopover. Interior roads and sites are gravel and level. Picnic tables between sites are in excellent condition and the grass is thick and well kept. We arrived after 5 p.m. and had to register in the Cabela’s store. The clerk was friendly and helpful and gave us our Good Sam discount. We would camp here again.

We stopped here overnight. The campground is out in the open without any shade. Highway noise from I-25 is noticeable. The sites are gravel and mostly level, but too close together. It’s good there were only a few campers here after Labor Day. The grass between sites, if you want to call it that: well, it’s like camping out in a field. One reason we stopped was several web sites and the AAA Travel Guide mentioned a chuck wagon dinner. The girl at the campground store told me they no longer do the chuck wagon dinners. It is ok for a stop over, but we probably won’t come back.

This is a small campground currently consisting of 10 sites located on the Big Wood River. There is a hot spring and swimming pool within walking distance and the Harriman bike trail runs through the campground. Part of the campground is closed due to flood damage. There are no facilities except for some pit toilets which were clean. The water faucets in the campground don’t work. Potable water and a dump station are available at the visitor center about 6 miles away. Interior roads and sites are gravel. All sites are level and can accommodate larger RVs. The campground host was friendly and helpful. We had a double site, but couldn’t tell much difference between the single and double sites. It was quiet except for some highway noise. However, traffic is light and almost nonexistent at night. This is a great place for dry camping. We would camp here again. Although this campground lacks facilities, we rated it compared to other dry camping experiences.

This well developed campground has paved interior roads and sites. All sites are level and each has a sheltered picnic table. There is plenty of room between sites. The main drawback is the noise. The campground is only about 100 yards from busy I-15. The air conditioner could not cover up the road noise, which went on all night. Then at 5:30 a.m. a train went by and blew its whistle, not once, but four times. For the price, it would be nice if they would provide wireless internet. We stayed here overnight, but next time we will look for a quieter place.

This is a large campground located in a stand of cottonwood trees that provide shade for some sites. Although we expected to find no electric, water or sewer at the sites we were disappointed with the overall condition of the campground. It looks like little has been done in the way of maintaining this campground. Many of the sites are short and will not accommodate today’s larger RVs. Without changing the primitive nature of this campground, the sites could be made larger and more level. The dump site is in poor condition. There are potholes around the small cement aprons at the two dump stations. The holes are full of spilled sewage. The dump site should be rebuilt. On the good side, this was a quiet and peaceful place to camp. However, next time we will try another campground in the park.

This is a clean, well maintained campground. Campground hosts were very helpful and friendly. We were escorted to our site. Interior roads are gravel and they are wide, making it easy to maneuver a big rig. All sites are pull-through, gravel and level with big shade trees. We used the laundry here and found it clean and well maintained with new washers and dryers. Restrooms and showers were also clean and well maintained. This is very nice facility. The only drawback is some highway noise. We would stay here again.

We stayed here over night on our way to Yellowstone. This is good campground for that purpose or as a base for visiting the area. There is a good view of Lander and the mountains from one end of the campground. Interior roads and sites are gravel and all sites are level. The campground owners were very helpful and friendly. We were escorted to our site. Sites are close together, but there is plenty of room for slide-outs and awning. Maneuvering interior roads is a little tight, but we had no problem with our 32-foot motorhome and tow vehicle. We would stay here again.

This is a very nice, city park with great campground hosts. The park is in excellent condition and well maintained. The electric, water, cable TV and sewer facilities look like they were recently replaced or upgraded. Interior roads are paved, and the sites are gravel and mostly level. There are plenty of large shade trees. The sites are a little closer together than we are used to in municipal/state parks. They could change this very good park into a great park by eliminating about half the sites. There are miles of paved bike trails connecting the campground with downtown Spearfish and surrounding areas. Of all the campgrounds we have stayed, this is one of the best.

This is an older facility. We stopped here over night. It appeared that this campground was mostly occupied by long term workers. Never the less, it was quiet, except for some highway noise from I-90. Inside with the air conditioner running we couldn't hear it. The host was friendly and helpful. Sites are all level. Interior roads and sites are dirt, not gravel. It probably gets muddy when it rains. There were some muddy spots left over from recent rains. The sites are somewhat close together, with grass in between. This is a good campground for overnighting, but I wouldn’t want to stay here any longer. I would camp here again.

This is one of those gems that only the folks in Iowa seem to know about. This county park is one of the best places we ever camped. We camped in the Fogdall campground, one of two campgrounds in the park. There are 21 full hook-up sites and many others with electric only. Our site had 50 amp service. Interior roads are paved, sites are gravel with a cement pad for the picnic table and there is plenty of space between sites. All the sites are level. Many sites are shaded by big trees. The park does not take reservations. One restroom facility serves both campgrounds and it is spotless. There are also miles of paved bike trails. Downtown Cedar Falls is an easy bike ride away. We camped here two nights and would come back and stay longer. The only reason I didn't rate it a 10 is lack of WiFi service.

Well groomed, very nice park with paved spaces far enough apart to provide some privacy. Sites mostly level, some with big trees. No pull-throughs. Clean restrooms and very nice play areas. Small lake with paddle boat rentals. Register at the boat office. Stayed here one night on my way through Tennessee. Would like to come back and stay longer. The only negative is lots of tame ducks, which is nice, but you have to watch your step some places to avoid the droppings.

Nice family oriented campground. Owners very friendly and helpful. Interior roads and sites gravel. Entrance road has some potholes. Lots of kids in the campground, but quiet after about 9 p.m. Would stay here again.
