One reviewer mentioned the barren landscape especially on the sites closest to the river. Apparently, the last snow-melt in Spring of 2008 brought the river up to the office and then some. The water line is still visible on the trees and sets about 5 or 6 ft off the ground. All of the sites closest to the river had to be evacuated. The flood took out most, if not all the trees. We visited in the dead of winter and stayed for a week, on the row nearest the river. It was delightful to see the sunsets over the river and watch the barge traffic lumber up and down day and night. Sturdy benches are proviced sporadically along the along the river's edge - a nice touch to watch the world go by. Some of the sites are gravel, some are cement (the cement sites are slightly more expensive). The staff is friendly and helpful. There is garbage pick-up at the site. The bath houses are older - clean enough, but kind of small and funky. New bathhouses are being constructed and should be finished up by late Spring. The sites are spaced nicely and quite long. There was plenty of room for our 36' 5'er and 1-ton dually (site # 100. Each site has a picnic table and fairly wide swath of grass on either side. The campground is quiet in winter, but usually jam-packed in Summer. Fishing is allowed (there are 2 small ponds on the grounds and of course, there is the river). Fishing licenses are required. Quiet and rustic - nothing to complain about. We'd surely stay again if in the area.

When in search of a 50amp campsite with sewer in the Richmond, Virginia area, I found Pocahontas State Park and was very excited to see a State park had these. Unfortunately, I called to make reservations and confirmed with them that they DO NOT HAVE SEWER OR 50 AMP. They do have a dump station and 20/30 amp service. This is just for everyone's info. Everything else is awesome.

This beautiful park is a stone’s throw from the west entrance of Yellowstone National Park. The park is carefully landscaped but surprisingly short of trees among the RV's – not much shade to speak of. We parked in a back-in site (#55) which backed right up to the Gallatin National Forest, perfect neighbors for our 9 night stay. The graveled sites have a nice long patio on the curb side, a separate graveled parking area for tow vehicle and a fairly wide lawn expanse on the street side – amply wide to provide a sense of space and privacy. The park accepts mail for campers, and offers pay WiFi (service by Nomad) with a good signal to our site. No garbage pickup at the site, but our dumpster was nearby. There was no traffic, jet or train noise. No large grocery stores or Wal-mart, but there are two small local markets in West Yellowstone. Between the two markets are a myriad of interesting and eclectic shops selling local artisans ware and wonderful furnishings & clothing. There of lots of dining choices, from sliced to order sandwiches to a sit-down steak house. The town (including a full-service post office) is within easy walking distance from the park. Park is pet friendly and vehicle washing is permitted. This is a nice place to stay while you visit Yellowstone National Park and a bit further (80 miles) to visit Grand Teton National Park. The park is very clean, inviting and comfortable. We would definitely stay here again when southern Montana is on our itinerary.

Very pleasant and “comfortable” place to stay. We had one small issue. We had made reservations several months prior to our arrival and made several calls to confirm our stay, one week in space #80. When we arrived late that afternoon, our reserved space was occupied by a motor home. The motor home was scheduled to move to another site to make way for our arrival. The staff was mortified and sent an employee over to rattle their cage – no one was home. They called the offending guest and learned that they were over an hour away “finishing up their meal”. The park was completely booked however, the employee offered to let us stay in the site the other folks were scheduled to move to. She did this so we could have electric (it was quite hot and we really needed the AC), that was nice of her. When the dawdlers finally returned, they vacated “our” site, we moved in, set up and all was well. I only mention this as this park is very big on rules – which is a good thing, generally speaking. However, this incident really should not have happened. The staff really should have been monitoring the sites to make sure those who should be out were out. Almost all the parks we have ever been in have an employee riding around at check-out time making sure those scheduled to leave or move have done so. That being said … this park is very lovely; landscaped with mature trees and colorful flowers. The sites are a bit close together but the landscaping camouflages the feeling of being too close. Picnic tables are not provided. Very accommodating staff. Nice buildings – clean laundry with lots of machines. Our site received great high-speed WiFi reception. We were on the row closest to the office. Good, steady voltage and nice water pressure. The office accepts mail for guests. Maneuvering around the streets and into the sites is challenging. When we left after our stay, we had to back out of our pullthru site, trying a forward left turn would have been impossible and risky to our 37’ fifth wheel and ¾ ton long bed dually. Nice place to headquarter while visiting Portland and surrounds. (Don’t miss the Columbia River Gorge scenic drive – but do it with your toad or tow vehicle, lots of narrow, twisty roads). If we’re ever back in the northwest – we’ll definitely stay here.

Nice park – lots of beautiful shade trees & lawn at sites. Picnic table and potted petunias at each site. Good voltage, high water pressure. Some highway noise, not excessive. Very small laundry facilities & restrooms, but very clean. Gravel sites & roads. Pay WiFi with good signal. We would return for a longer stay next time we’re in Burns.

Fairly new, large and apparently seasonal park with paved streets and level gravel sites. Well manicured strips of grass between each site along with immature trees (3–4 years old) on every other site. This is a well-designed park with long sites; large & comfortably wide – lots of room for our 37’ fifth wheel and 1-ton dually. Clean and well appointed facilities; library, computer room, weight & exercise room. Escort to site & very friendly and accommodating staff. Lots of planned activities. Free cable TV with adequate channel selection. Lots of good shopping nearby (Walmart, Sam’s, Costco, Target, Albertson’s, Home Depot, Lowe’s and more) Unfortunately, no picnic tables at the sites. No garbage pick-up and way too few dumpsters for the size of the park. Free WiFi, spotty availability at the sites; also available in the library. Located next to a construction yard – things were noisy in the morning (starting at 8 a.m.) on Monday through Friday. Lack of shade and it was blazing hot while we were there – triple digits on a few days. There weren’t many sites occupied and those that were, seemed permanent – summer’s apparently not the high season in this part of Idaho. Detriments not enough to keep us away if we ever returned to Caldwell.

This is a lovely park in a very quiet, rural setting. Out of the 140 sites, approximately half of them have beautiful, mature shade trees. (I suspect the unshaded sites are newer). They are all immaculate and have well-kept lawns all ‘round. We parked in the older section, site B6, with a nice view of the mountains and a neighboring horse corral. The pullthrus are generously wide and amply long – plenty of room for our 37’ 5th wheel and our F-350 dually. Each site has a very nice plastic composite picnic table. The office is immaculate, as are the bathrooms and laundry. The on-site owners are very accommodating and hard-working. They provide a personal escort to the site and they accept mail and even deliver it to your site! There is a small playground, I didn’t notice a pool, but that wasn’t a concern to us. The park is very pet friendly. They only have 30 amp but for an extra $2.50 per day you can use the adapter available at Camping World (50 Amp RV Box Adapter – Item # 25774) It uses both outlets on the post – very nice in the summer! The park advertises free WiFi, but it is only available in the room adjacent to the office – ad could be more specific (this seems to be a common issue with WiFi service: “We have free WiFi, but you can’t get it at your site.”). Worth it to be specific when you call ahead if WiFi is important to you. There’s not much shopping nearby, best stock up before you arrive. The town has one small market - prices are a bit on the high side, but they do have an amazing variety of products. Not much to do in Arco, but this a wonderful, restful place to stop for a day or two and visit the Craters of the Moon National Preserve – a fascinating place. No traffic noise, no trains – just birds, squirrels & friendly people. All in all, a perfect place to be.

Large, 55+ fully paved park – mostly “snow-bird” sites with a scattering of available sites for folks traveling through. Not much landscaping to speak of, the park is in an open, flat and very sunny desert area – very hot, even in May. The park is not big-rig friendly, all the somewhat narrow sites are back-in and most have very tight turning radius. Parking our 37’ fifth wheel was almost impossible to do without encroaching on surrounding sites or doing battle with a light pole or two (No escort to the site was available). Laundry, pool and showers were clean and adequate. Office was closed on weekends. Park advertised free WiFi however upon on arrival we were informed that they only had one WiFi “hook-up” spot in the office area (the person that checked us in didn’t seem very knowledgeable on the whole subject). While checking for wi-fi connections in the area, Coach Connect showed up. The desk person wasn’t aware of that and didn’t know if they had a password for guests to use. We could have paid to use Coach Connect by purchasing air time on our own account. We opted not to as we have a Verizon card and the signal was excellent. We called 2 months prior to our visit, confirmed the date of our stay and the rate. The rates were quite high, especially considering the fact that the park was definitely in off-season. At that time, we specifically inquired as to any special add-on or extra charges - desk person was adamant, there WERE no extra charges. Upon arrival, we were charged the daily rate less a Good Sam discount PLUS $3 per day for “less than 5 day stay”. That was the strangest daily add-on rate we’ve ever encountered. We addressed the confirmation that we had received earlier about no add-ons and the desk person simply said there was “nothing they could do”. Not good customer relations. The park is close to a small Tanger outlet mall and several fast-food emporiums, but that’s about it. Given the number of RV parks in the Casa Grande area, there is no need to go to this over-priced one.

Don’t bother to fix your hair ladies, you are in “windy Rawlins” (self-proclaimed by many of the area residents). Can’t blame the park for the location – it is what it is. Aside from the ever-present gales that whip through, the park is not that bad, certainly not a destination resort, but more than adequate for a night or two while passing through on I-80. (they even offer no hook up sites for those who prefer). Easy access on and off I-80, the park is essentially a large gravel parking lot with three rows of level, full hook-up, pull-through sites. The park has very widely spaced rows (streets) and sufficiently wide spaces, some separated by white lattice, trellis-type fences and small greenery. Very clean park and friendly staff. Definitely big-rig friendly with easy maneuverability in and out of the sites. Dog-friendly with pet area and pet play pen. Free WiFi at the site is very iffy – it apparently works in the office. This park plays host to many of the 24/7 workers from the nearby Sinclair Oil Refinery (6 miles away in the town of Sinclair). Some early risers with noisy diesels. The park is also about ½ mile from the railroad tracks. My husband heard the train a few times overnight – I never did. Even so, he said the train did not wake him or keep him awake. The train noise was not very bothersome. The park’s web page is informative, accurate and not over-blown (no pun intended). The site provides several links to local activities – it fails to mention the Wyoming Frontier Prison, located on the edge of town. The prison offers hour long tours every hour – providing a fascinating glimpse into correctional facilities of the Old West.

This park is situated in Estes Park, a very touristy mountain town. The area is loaded with all kinds of activities, accommodations, specialty and tourist shops. There is a small, full-service grocery right next to the park and a large chain supermarket at the other end of town. The next nearest shopping (aside from Estes Park itself) is a tough 25 mile drive up and over the canyon to Loveland. There you’ll find a huge outlet mall, Walmart Supercenter & Sam’s, along with every other major store you can think of. Go 20 miles or so in the other direction the other way over more mountains and curves to Longmont - to another Walmart Supercenter. The park is a great place to headquarter for a visit to Rocky Mountain Park. The park is surrounded by thickly-forested beautiful trees, it sits along the banks of the Big Thompson River – swift and quite lovely. The park shares one of its other boundaries with another nice-looking RV park (the Manor). Nice greenery and mature trees surround the entrance and the lake. (The term “lake” is a bit of an overstatement, it’s not very big – it’s more like a large pond or a puddle on steroids, if you will. Fishing is permitted (no license) at the hefty fee of $7.50 a day or $20 for 3 days. You must keep any fish you catch – (no throw backs). The roads and the RV pads are dirt (maybe some crushed gravel), and each rig site has a wide lawn expanse and some intermittent young trees. Things are a bit dusty when folks drive by or the wind blows. The sites are incredibly wide, a good 30’ to 40’ - if you could drive into them from the side, you could park crosswise! The sites are also amply long – plenty of room for our 37’ fiver and F-350 dually. All of the sites are back-in, backing up adjacent to the next row of back-in sites. Fortunately, the sites are staggered, checkerboard style, so the view out the back window is not the other guy’s back window, just his toad or tow vehicle. Not too bad. Thanks to the width of the site, even full, this park doesn’t feel particularly crowded. [Not side-by-side hook-ups]. Terrific water pressure & good voltage. Garbage pick-up at the site. Pancake & Sausage breakfast on Saturday ($2.00 – extra sausage 25¢ each), ice cream social once or twice weekly and other planned activities. No instant-on phones and some dog breed restrictions. Free wi-fi but we couldn’t get a signal at our site (#46). Ala Carte pricing: cable - $3/day , 50 amp - $2/day and so forth. If we returned to the area, we might look around for another park.

This is one of the nicest parks in the Denver area and it is always full in high-season. We called 2 months ahead for our visit in June – good thing, there were absolutely no sites available; plan ahead for this one. The well-treed sites are separated by well-kept, very wide lawns. The streets are paved and most of the sites are now cement. They were previously asphalt and it seems that they’re being upgraded a bit at a time. The park provides an escort to the side and parking assist if needed. The park provides garbage pick-up at the site. Nice pool, office, laundry & shower – all very clean. All day coffee & hot chocolate in the office/meeting room. Friendly staff. Good voltage & high water pressure – be sure to use a regulator. Propane available on site & the office will accept mail for visitors. Good Sam discount available as well as an additional discount available from one of the three other sister parks: Spruce Lake, Elk Meadow, & Rocky Mountain RV. Now the bad news. The sites are back-to-back, most share a utility post. The entry doors of side-by-side units face each other and share the lawn expanse – each with its own picnic table. We stayed for a week and fortunately had quiet, responsible neighbors – not so in some cases, which I imagine can make for a very unpleasant stay. Expensive rate and they have ala carte add-ons: $3 a day for cable, $2 a day for cable, instant-on phone $2 a day, extra person $4, $1 for each dog a day and so forth. They restrict certain dog breeds (Rottweiler, Akita, Staffordshire Terriers, Pit Bull & Doberman). The older, asphalt sites have cracked off and crumbled corners, making leveling difficult. The pads are fairly narrow, making things a bit tight on the driver’s side of things.

We enjoyed our stay here, very nice campground in a nicely-treed rustic setting at 6000’ elevation. Sites spaced as generously as possible, considering all the trees. They have a tiered rate structure and tiered sites. We stayed in one of their “Premium Terrace” sites over the week preceding Memorial Day as well as the Memorial Day weekend. It was their top row and it was nicely secluded overlooking the campgrounds and nestled against a reddish rock bluff. The owner and the staff were very eager, helpful and solicitous – bending over backwards to accommodate the guests – very nice. The small office store was nicely stocked with basic needs & supplies. The sites were nicely landscaped with rock boundaries & walls; each had a fire ring and table. Most of the sites seem to be big-rig friendly – ours certainly was, we easily fit our 37’ fifth wheel & F-350 dually pickup. Now the bad news. The water pressure fluctuated between low and lower – we checked it with and without the filter, made no difference – it was still low. The roads were made of crushed red rock which was either dusty or muddy, dependent on the weather. The free WiFi was iffy at best but we had to use it as we received no signal at all from our Verizon card or phone, even with the Wilson Trucker antenna. The owner did not follow the leash law, which was a bit disconcerting – too many times we found the large, friendly dog running loose and looking lost (although I’m sure he wasn’t). We hit the place at peak season and found it to be bit pricey – but I suppose that’s to be expected during a summer holiday week in Colorado. We wouldn’t hesitate to stay here again, it’s a great place for a home base to see the Royal Gorge, Pikes Peak, the Air Force Academy, Garden of the Gods, and Black Hawk Canyon.

This is a small, quiet, and well-kept park with easy on and off access and no traffic, train or other obnoxious noises that plague so many other parks. The open, sparsely treed grounds in the 7000’ San Luis valley are surrounded by beautiful mountain backdrops and house several rows of mostly level pull through sites, with a combination of full, 50-amp hookups (but only 4), full, 30-amp hook-ups, several water and electric, a handful of tent sites on the fringes of the park and the inevitable KOA cabins. Each site is equipped with tables, fire rings and grills. Navigating into some of the sites might be tight-turning for some of the biggest, big-rigs but we managed our 37’ fifth wheel & F-350 pickup with very little problem. The park has on-site propane, free WiFi, on-site owners and managers, a friendly, helpful staff and offers an escort to the site. The large, clean office building houses a cute all-year Christmas store and modest gift and supply store with grocery necessities and limited emergency RV supplies. The generously-sized, gravel spaces are separated by wide strips of lawn and a combination of young and mature trees. The playground is appropriately furnished and was enjoyed thoroughly by the many young campers using it during the Memorial Day week we were here. The lovely looking pool was undergoing seasonal maintenance for the upcoming summer. The weather was still a bit too chilly for frolicking in the water. This is a great home-base to visit the Great Sands Dunes National Park, Zapata Falls, Alamosa Wildlife Refuge, Rio Grande Scenic Railroad and the Cumbres-Toltec Railroad. Now, the bad news: The Park has side-by-side hookups. We were on an end, so we were not forced to share our front yard with a neighbor, not so with most other sites. The water pressure and voltage fluctuated quite a bit. The water pressure falling to 20 and the electric mostly never reaching 110. The single dumpster is by the office and certainly not convenient to all the campers. This highly-priced park offers no discounts, only their own KOA card which provides a 10% discount. We secured our reservations several months before our visit and would highly recommend the same for others: especially for any summer holiday week. If we return to the area we would most likely return to this park.

This very small & noisy park has mostly permanent residents and sits right on the main thoroughfare. Of the 12 tightly-spaced, thickly graveled sites only 1 or 2 are available for transient RV’ers. The park is apparently full to capacity all year long, mostly with early-rise workers. We called for reservations several months prior to our visit and we were told to “Come on in”. We checked again about a week ahead of our arrival and received the same response. When we arrived, the office was closed and there were instructions to self-park and return after 5 p.m. to check-in. Had another traveler pulled in before us, they would have taken the only remaining site and our “Come-on-in reservation” would be worthless. Not a good system. The hard-working and sincere on-site owners work full-time elsewhere and there is no other employees to staff the office, thus leaving no help available during normal working hours. The owners are admittedly having trouble finding time for all they have to do and they aren’t too worried about filling the 2 vacant sites with travelers. To their credit, they have several improvement projects in process, most everything is in good repair and the park is as charming as possible given it’s poor location. The park offers free WiFi (Lynksys) with an excellent signal & speed. There is no cable TV, showers, or laundry – but it’s “coming soon” according to the nicely-designed, if not overblown, website. The sites are simply too narrow for picnic tables or grills, our 50-amp service was not working and the sites are definitely too short to accommodate big rigs (we backed our 37’ 5th wheel and still-attached F-350 into the end site – which left quite a bit of our rig hanging out into the “street”). We only stayed here for one night and even then it was a definite disappointment.

This is a lovely, quiet, well-equipped park in Arizona’s big-sky country – flat high desert surrounded by vast prairie, delightfully in the middle of nowhere. The park is surrounded by a security gate with an electronic gate control. The level, gravel spaces are roomy with adjacent parking & picnic table. The park is nicely landscaped with tall mature trees and some shrubbery. The staff are exceedingly helpful & friendly. There are a total of 71 spaces with 15 full-hookup sites in the row closest to the office, (including 2 handicap accessible). This is a great home base for a visit to Meteor Crater, Walnut Canyon, Painted Desert, Grand Canyon, Petrified Forest, Flagstaff and the not to be missed “Standing on the Corner” in Winslow, Arizona! Good WiFi, strong signal, pay as you go. Great voltage & water pressure. Old Route 66 runs perpendicular to the park – it is unpaved, try it if you’re adventurous. The tall, ruin-like adobe building to the east of the park (on old Rte 66) is the original visitor center for Meteor Crater in the early part of the 19th century. Don’t let this keep you away, but there was some very far-away traffic noise from I-40 – certainly NOT bothersome and we dislike traffic noise. Somewhere in the desert, far north of the park, a very distant freight train rumbled through once in a while. The park has a nice office, well-stocked general store & Subway sandwich shop next to the park. There is also an affiliated Mobile station with moderately priced fuel & gas. All in all, this is a nice park, well designed and definitely worth stopping at – good for a bit of rest & relaxation and 'touristing' if you’re in the mood.

Large, well-established RV park on the far west side of Albuquerque. Easy off & on I-40. We have always stayed & been very pleased with American RV, but this year we were rather disappointed. This is another case of the owners changing a former pay-service to a “free amenity”, which is supposed to be a “favor” to the guests. Not in this case – the “free” WiFi didn’t work worth a hoot. I understand that this is not an important issue for many of you – but for those of you who care about quality of the WiFi signal & service, take heed. We’d much rather pay for something that works than have a freebie that doesn’t. Moving on … The park has lovely, mature landscaping and beautifully maintained grounds. The streets are paved with asphalt and the wide, level sites are cement. Each site has an attached adjacent parking area – some of the parking areas are not quite long enough, forcing angled parking. The streets are in need of some resurfacing, falling victim to the typical deterioration that happens in desert climates. The spaces are amply wide and there are no side-by-side hook ups. There are several “premium sites” equipped with instant-on phone, cable TV and charcoal grills. (Surprisingly enough, this park does not offer cable TV on a park-wide basis.) The excellent maintenance extends to the laundry, office and restrooms. The swimming pool was closed during our visit (March 3 – 12). A Continental breakfast is offered daily and served in a charmingly decorated clubhouse area (adjacent to the office). Nicely stocked gift/supply shop in the office area. Propane available on-site. No garbage pick-up at the site, not even at the “premium” sites - only 4 widely-spaced dumpsters for the entire park. The majority of the 188 sites are pull-throughs and are big-rig friendly. All-in-all, this is a very nice park, it is very clean, lots of mature trees and nearby shopping. There are several of the usual discounted rates available (Good Sam, 4 days, 5th day free and so forth.). The park has recently added several nicely designed, furnished lodges that will sleep 8 – 10 people, a great way to share the Balloon Festival with family or friends. [Note: If you’re planning on attending the Festival, you can’t make reservations early enough. The place fills up completely in spite of the hefty “festival rates” (which are double the regular rate).]

This is a great place to hang your hat on the way from here to there – you may even want to stay a day or two. This is a large, well-designed park with the most delightful “office/registration desk” I’ve ever seen. It is nestled in a huge, two-story, RV gift & curio store – the décor is warm and woodsy complete with an inside waterfall! They have an amazing assortment of gifts, clothing, candles, toys & western goodies – it can literally take hours to prowl through all the treasures on both floors. (speaking from personal experience). The majority of the gravel sites are pull-through and separated by privacy fences. We had ample room for our 37.5’ 5th wheel & 1-ton dually parked end-to-end. Sites have picnic tables, instant-on telephone connection, free wi-fi (good signal) and 14-channel cable TV. The park offers free continental breakfast on the weekends in their hospitality room. The sites surround an elaborate, wonderfully landscaped park with paths, footbridges, a rock fountain, benches and a catch and release fishing pond. We’ve been here twice – once for a week-long stay and once for an overnight, you can rest assured we’ll be back. We highly recommend this park both for its amenities and its casual, friendly ambiance.

Technically in Robinsonville, not Tunica - this RV park is part of the huge Sam’s Town Casino complex. We arrived at the park on a Saturday at 3:30 in the afternoon and much to our surprise, the RV park office was closed! Visitors had to park in the waiting area and walk to the hotel to register (about 2 football fields away). Now, that’s not too bad in balmy weather, but when we arrived it was a cloudy, blustery day with temps hovering in the 30’s. While friendly & helpful, the hotel staff knew precious little about the RV park, to wit: “… What’s propane?”. The office was closed on Sunday also and oh, by the way – THERE IS NO WIFI. The website boasts free WiFi, but neglects to mention that it’s only available at the hotel. The best thing about the park so far was the price - $12.99 a night. It was a long afternoon. Easily maneuverable, the well-kept streets & well-spaced sites are separated by wide grass strips. The sites are very long and narrow. We had plenty of room for our 37.5’ rig & 1-ton dually parked end-to-end. A large aluminum picnic table & BBQ grill were found on the adjacent patio of each site. Other than restrooms & showers, there were no amenities at the RV park proper, however guests were welcome to use the facilities available at the hotel. There was a pay phone available for guests, outside on the side of the office building. Obviously, the primary reason folks will visit the area is for casino gambling. This area is home to nine or so large casinos, but very little else – the nearest shopping was in the small town of Hernando, 20 miles away and probably the nearby Tunica, although we never got that far. The casinos are in widely spaced clusters of two or three, the clusters are separated by miles – so don’t plan on walking the distance between them. There is a shuttle system which provides amply-scheduled, transportation to all of them. Bottom line, in spite of the poor customer service and lack of sufficient staffing for the park office, this park is okay. One of three in the immediate area, the rate can’t be beat. We came to gamble and enjoy ourselves and we would stay here again if we’re ever lost in Mississippi.

We enjoyed our stay immensely! Yes, it rained, yes it was muddy, but what a fascinating and unique family-owned place! The 90 some-odd full-hookup sites are spaces surround two large (10 & 12 acres) well-stocked fishing ponds and the entire camp is surrounded by wooded areas, bayous and swamp. Fishing is free and no state license is required, three types of bait as well as a remarkable assortment of fishing gear is sold at the office. The well-spaced gravel sites and road are surrounded by lawn. We were parked in site #1 and in spite of the recent, heavy rain we were able to find enough level terra-firma to park on (with the help of flat wooden planks under our wheels). All of the sites back up to the ponds – there are wonderful views and occasional bird antics. This is a very rural locale – in the bayou country of Acadiana. The friendly owner and staff will happily direct you to the best of this and that in the area – as well as suggest the best site for your unit. The web sites directions are clear and accurate and there is nice signage along the way – keep going, it takes a while to get there. There is a wonderfully inviting large common-room complete with rock fireplace, wooden rockers, upholstered furnishings, tables & chairs, a large kitchen and a lakeside screened-in porch. There is a smaller community room on the far end of the park and a small chapel-like building between the two loops. The pool was closed during our visit (January). The laundry is clean with adequate facilities for the small park. There is no public phone, but the owner offered us her cell phone any time we needed. The park accepts mail for campers and the office-store is stocked with assorted basics & Cajun treats. There is varied nearby shopping; Walmart, Home Depot, Lowes and full retail mall are all within 20 miles. WiFi, provided by Tengo, is excellent and available for different rates.

Cute little park – warm welcome from a bubbly, efficient host(ess). We arrived during her short absence (there was a note on the door to that effect), we choose our site in the front row (closest to the office for WiFi, just in case). Easy on & off I-40, not much traffic noise, considering our proximity to the freeway. [we were here in Winter, so being closed up helps keep the noise at bay, our assessment on that might be a bit skewed.] Lovely, low-key, well-kept park – not fancy. Gravel streets & sites, free cable, $1.00/night for 50 amp. Free WiFi with upgraded system – actually reaches all the sites – priceless! Lovely mature trees between most sites and throughout the park. There actually is an Elk Creek – a portion of it runs north & south along the east edge of the park. Not a fancy park – no picnic tables or grills, but consider this the “little campground that could” – it’s tops among the little guys. We only stayed here one night as part of a 4-night whistle-stop jaunt to avoid a serious storm system. We didn’t have a chance to learn much more. We would stay here again – if passing through the Oklahoma City area.

Slim pickens for RV parks in this area. This is an older bare-bones, down-home park in the north-eastern part of Tulsa. Beautifully treed, the paved streets are iffy and the sites are dirt/gravel. No picnic tables or grills, our site was too narrow – just a fairly level, full hookup site with 50 amp. Not a straight-forward layout in the park, it seemed that some of the sites were placed as an afterthought making navigation to some of the sites a bit challenging. Thanks to a friendly and experienced escort – all went well. Our site, which was in a pull-through row, was flanked by tall wooden privacy fences – nice touch. Although a bit narrow, the site had ample length to accommodate our 37.5’ 5th wheel and 1-ton dually. Good WiFi, signal available all over the park. There was no apparent traffic, train or jet noise – we were here in Winter, so being closed up helps keep the noise at bay, our assessment on that might be a bit skewed.

Easy access from I-40, very friendly welcome. This is a small, older privately-owned park with gravel roads & fairly level gravel sites. Sites are full hook-up 50 amp, back-in & pull-through, and free WiFi. Most of the sites seemed long enough to accommodate the “big boys” and their toads and we had sufficient length to fit our supercab, 1-ton dually and 37.5’ fifth wheel. However, these are the narrowest commercial RV park sites we’ve ever experienced in all our 20 some-odd years on the road. (pull-throughs are 18’ wide, back-in’s are 20’ wide). The sites are so narrow that …. (how narrow are they?) … our neighbor’s picnic table sat immediately beneath our bedroom slide out and over our sewer hook up – not a petty picture! Thankfully, we were here in the off-season and had no neighbors during our 8-day stay. If we had had a neighbor with slides deployed, using our awning would have been a pipe-dream. Picnic tables are not provided at all sites, which is a mixed blessing, considering the circumstances. There are lovely trees by the office, common room and bordering the lake-side of the park, but there is very sparse landscaping among the actual campsites - a scruffy strip of grass separates each site and there are a meager few scrawny trees here and there. The laundry is adequate, the showers & restrooms, although apparently clean, are a bit on the spooky side – -with a small, dark corner-shower draped with a cheery vinyl curtain. A small gas heater gurgles busily on the wall. The very large common room is nicely appointed with a small kitchen and tables & chairs. There is quite a bit of “low-traffic rumble” both from nearby I-40 and SR 7, one of the main surface streets that runs right by the front of the campground. At times, the noise is consistent & grating – lots of big construction vehicles and heavy dump trucks back & forth starting early and ending late. The park is on the shores of Lake Dardanelle although there is no access to the lake from the park – a thick swampy bramble separates the campers from the water’s edge. There is a municipal boat launch just up the road a bit from the park. This small, privately-owned park is in a nice community. There is a Super Wal-Mart, Krogers and several small, neighborhood markets within a 20-mile radius. There are lots of interesting things to do, as well as a huge lake to explore. Getting around is easy, mostly accessed from one of four exits on I-40. [By the way, if you happen to be approaching this area from the east on I-40, be sure and stop at the Arkansas Visitor’s Center at about milepost 3. You’ll find just about everything you ever wanted to know about the state from a friendly knowledgeable host – free coffee, of course.] The on-site park managers are very friendly & helpful. While we were there, they were having a hard time keeping the WiFi going – it was excellent about 90% of the time, then it would simply not work at all. They sincerely apologized and tried diligently to keep the signal on – with success most of the time. [Some of their equipment was probably older and not designed for the capacity of folks that use it.] This place is jammed in the summer – reservations are a must!! This park is “good enough” – definitely not a destination park, but the rate is reasonable for this popular area.

Although the website advertised WiFi, it was only available in the office and a precious-few nearby campsites. We arrived in the early afternoon and did not receive a very cordial welcome, the clerk was too busy closing out for the day – this was 3:30. She was helpful in choosing a site as close to the WiFi as possible and that turned out to be a good thing – reception was intermittent and weak, but we did receive a signal. In general, customer service was lackadaisical – the employees just didn’t seem to care. As this is a State owned property, alcohol is strictly prohibited (parts of Mississippi have some of the most stringent liquor laws in the country). Apparently they are quite serious – get caught drinking or in possession and out you go! (Discretion was the key here.) Lots of routine security patrols and the grounds were fairly well maintained. Not so for the restrooms & showers – they were a bit on the “yucky” side. Paved sites and streets, wide enough but a bit hard to maneuver and our site was very ‘un-level’. Empty lakeside sites were not available for anyone staying less than a month – even during the winter when they would surely be vacant and not earn any $$$ for the park. We were parked in a quiet, wooded area with few neighbors and lots of shade, very much unlike the treeless sites in the front which were crowded and noisy with nearby street traffic and traffic through the park. We stayed here for 2 weeks. If we were in the area, we would return. The price is right and the trees are lovely. If WiFi is important, be sure to ask to be placed close to the office.

Easy access from I-12 & SR 63 (South Frost Rd) - good signage & directions. Escort & assist with parking on long, level cement pads with adjacent patio and vehicle parking. Although the pads were slightly narrow, there was plenty of room for our 37’ 5th wheel and 1-ton dually. With slides deployed there was very little cement remaining on the street side and back of the unit. Aside from cement roadways and site pads, all else is surrounded by well-cared for lawn, which becomes quite muddy when it rains – which is often. The park is close to a fairly busy local roadway, intermittent traffic noise somewhat disturbing - not the worst we’ve ever heard but certainly there. Daily garbage pick-up at the site. Very friendly & helpful staff. The campground will accept guests’ incoming mail. Two great common buildings, both with AC. Nice pool, adequate laundry & showers and propane is available on site. Most of the 143 sites are back-in with one row of 13 pull-throughs and there are four good-sized rental cabins (park models). There are young trees, a fire ring and a picnic table at each site. WiFi is provided by Tengo – a pay service with a slightly hefty price tag ($34.95/mo) but an excellent signal where we were. We stayed in site # 121 on the west side of the 18 acre lake and closest to the water’s edge – fishing is free and no state license is required. The south side of the park (the longest side of the slightly rectangular lake) is surrounded by thick woods and swamp area. Fun to watch & feed the water birds including a swan, mallards, coots & even an unusual black swan. A bald eagle occasionally swoops in for a little fishing. This is laid out like a commercial, cookie-cutter type park, but the friendly staff and the natural ambiance of the area, raise it above many that we’ve seen. We enjoyed our 2-week stay - the only reason we gave this park a “9” is that the sites are slightly close to each other. We would return if in the area.

Easy access on and off of I-10 to this well-maintained but poorly-designed park. There are no trees or other landscaping, just 10-12’ strips of lawn on either side of each cement pad which are about 10' wide. The roads are concrete and are immediately adjacent to the cement pads. This creates a major problem when it rains – which it did a lot while we were there. Because of all the cement hemming in the lawn at each site there is no drainage. In short order the grassy areas turns to a sodden mess. The sites are amply wide, however, the cement pads are very long & especially narrow. A standard 96” unit takes up virtually the entire width. The adjacent cement patios are set too far forward in the site to allow the exit step to be deployed over the patio AND to comfortably park the toad or tow vehicle. Once the slides are deployed, there is virtually no pad left to walk on. It was entertaining watching everyone tip-toe to their poorly placed tow or toad vehicle to avoid the black, sticky mud. Of course, the poor folks who had to set up & affix hoses and such stood no chance of avoiding the mud. This design flaw was the park’s most annoying detriment. The park is well-run by a friendly staff & management. They offer a daily complimentary Continental breakfast, including made-to-order fresh waffles. The free wifi has a strong signal – we stayed in site #2, which was close to the office and the wifi antenna. The instant-on phone is not working at most sites – Hurricane Katrina took care of that. They should, however, mention that on the website and/or mention it at check-in. Only 2 dumpsters for 125 sites – a bit unreasonable for a park this large. The park accepts mail for guests. There was traffic & construction rumble from from nearby I-10 and road construction. Distant train whistle can be heard several times a day. We enjoyed our week-long stay and would return if in the area. The park made a great headquarters to visit Beaumont, Lake Charles and other items of interest in the “golden triangle”.

This is a quiet, rural and casual RV park. Not a resort certainly, it's on the bayou, surrounded by lawned and palm-treed spaces. There are no shade trees. We stayed along the bayou, site #65 - very nice, lots of room and very level - plenty of room for our 37' fifth wheel and F-350 dually. Fun to watch the water birds and the flock of wild Monk parakeets screeching through the trees. Several rows of sites border the water - some on the bayou, some on a small fresh-water lake. Two fishing piers, a small marina and the waters edge accommodate avid anglers. There is also a 9-hole golf course on the property. There is a very nice kitchen and small community room - even equipped with a high end treadmill and a telephone for the guests. Clean showers & laundry. The park accepts mail for guests. The free wireless is a bit "iffy" - they could use a booster or two to reach all the spaces. There is no garbage pick up, only 2 dumpsters for 81 sites. Family activities are minimal, save the fishing and self-generated biking and such. The park is set back off the main roads and a little tricky to find (don't let that stop you - just call the friendly, laid-back owners for directions.) In spite of the rural setting, there is adequate shopping nearby (Wal-mart, Walgreens, Dollar stores, etc.) There is mall shopping and such in nearby Galveston & Houston. This is a nice place to headquarter and visit the Space Center, Moody Gardens, Kemah Boardwalk, the Gulf of Mexico & many more. This is a popular place with many full-time Winter Visitors: be sure to call early for reservations. We visited in December and called at least 4 months ahead for our bayou-edge site.

Lots of really nice things and quite a few serious shortcomings. This is a large, very nice, condominium type resort - all of the sites are privately owned and rented when the owners are out of town. Easy access off of 361. Friendly & helpful work-camper staff. Very wide paved streets make it all very maneuverable (no tall trees to impede turning). Amazingly well cared-for decorative plantings, manicured grassy areas and palms separate beautiful concrete & decorative paver-brick sites. Each site has a separate parking area, some have step-downs to charming ponds scattered on the property - all sites have cement picnic table and bench sets. The southeast end of the park has a walkway that connects to a well-built boardwalk - a mere 200 yards over the dunes leads to a clean, quiet beach on the Gulf of Mexico. Each site has instant-on phone connections, cable TV reception is very good, very complete channel lineup. Resort accepts mail for visitors. Propane available to the site from roving truck. $1 rental DVDs available at the office. Very quiet and remote location - no highway noise to speak of. We parked in 733, excellent proximity to the Gulf boardwalk, much too far to dumpster and office. Pricey place: tiered rent structure: $250 to $275/wk, $43 to $48/day. Additional charge for electricity - 15 cents/kwh. Marginally slow WI-FI provided by Coach Connect for an additional fee. (Coach Connect is one of the pricier pay-as-you-go WI-Fi providers.) Additional charge of $5 for each pet. [Pet policy is breed restrictive for dogs; no pit bulls, Doberman, chow, and any wolf hybrid.] There is no specific dog-walking area. No garbage pickup and only one dumpster for the entire park of 150+ sites. - it is located behind the office, Small common area with tables, laundry & bathing facilities are located in the office building and are not accessible after office closes (6 p.m.) Water pressure drops dramatically at 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. due to two large, nearby hi-rise condos - don’t count on a good shower at that time. It’s a bit far from everything - only adequate groceries nearby in Port Aransas (5mi). Corpus Christi 25 - 30 miles. The park is a work in progress, currently they are in the process of expanding with 48 additional sites in the center of the property - construction noise is minimal.

This is an Escapees park - open to the public with some of the other usual Escapee amenities. Desert location, fairly remote on the far east side. They do not accept reservations. Friendly welcome, but the desk personnel seemed "worn out" simply tired of all the questions. They have discontinued the 3/1 discount for the dry camping area. Easy access from I-10. Disappointed to find they had discontinued WiFi because, "nobody used it". [It seemed that the average age of the campers was not of the WiFi generation - not a lot of computer use and/or interest in it.] No cable, but satellite signal was good and easy to obtain. We had intended to stay 4 nights, but with the lack of WiFi we changed our plans and only stayed there 1 night. The dirt & gravel sites were well spaced with some mature trees - not much other landscaping to speak of. Plenty of room for our 37’ 5th wheel and F350 Dually. Close to the highway and railroad, but surprisingly quiet. Some of the spaces are ownership sites and there are quite a few permanent and/or work-campers. Metered electric @ 10¢ per kwh.

Huge place - lots of sites devoted to permanent park models and trailers. Situated on the water, inlet and canal on the edges of the immense Falcon Reservoir. We were escorted to our site on the back fringes of the park - the majority of the sites are on one level, the RV’s (transient) spots seem to be on the edges one story down (15’ - 20’) - perhaps it was a second thought, something to do with all that extra space. Some of the RV sites were parallel to the road - the 15’ - 20’ bluff on one side, the road on the other (I believe those were considered the pull-thru’s). Unless you really hug the bluff on one side, your deployed slide might hang over the park interior road. Fortunately there was very little traffic, but it was still a bit unnerving. Nightly rate ($15) surprisingly inexpensive for free WiFi & extensive cable (50+ channels). Very helpful owner loaned us a cable TV splitter for the evening. We were parked in a very quiet area of a very quiet park. We only stayed one night, but in our short stay we saw 3 boat docks and lots of friendly people. Loads of park activities, socials, pot luck dinners, interdenominational services every Sunday and so forth.

Varied rates (seasonal, standard site, premier, etc) @ $35 - 45 nightly. Free Wi-Fi was slow while we were there (< 20 Mbps) also intermittent (restarting the computer often helped increase connectivity). Nice views at this park - especially on the northwest side facing the laguna and looking toward the causeway bridge and the south side facing Dolphin Cove. We were in site #2 which was fairly nice with one exception - the site is a pull-through but not for a 5th wheel, pulling through with 5th wheel virtually eliminates the view (hook-ups are on the wrong side. Motorhomes are fine, the view is out the front windshield. We fixed the problem by backing into the site and running the utilities under the trailer and out the other side. They don’t normally allow it, but we’ll "let it go this time". Site #1A and #1 are peculiarly shaped. With all three sites occupied( #1A, 1 & 2) - things are entirely too close for comfort (thank God for good neighbors). Nice park, paved roads, easy to maneuver - fairly level gravel sites. Picnic table at each site but no concrete slab. Easy access from Hwy 100. Nice landscaping, but no shade trees. Telephone available in the rec room (the Commons) - can also be used as modem. Propane available from roving truck. Nice choice of free cable channels, reception/picture is often fuzzy. No highway traffic noise, however - there is quite a bit of diesel boat noise from surrounding boat traffic and the on-property deep-sea fishing business. Their first excursion leaves promptly at 7:30 a.m. and depending on the cloud-cover and humidity - the loud, grating rumble can be very tiring to listen to day after day, several times a day. No on-site store or provisions, but lots of nearby shopping (Walmart and H.E.B.) Brownsville (20 miles away) has just about everything - Home Depot, Target, Walmart, drugstores, nice shopping malls and lots more. The park has many planned activities - crafts, music, dancing and of course, eating. This is definitely a destination resort with lots to see & do.

Easy access from Hwy 90. Free cable & WiFi - excellent WiFi, we were In #4, close to the office. Weekly rate (no discount w/weekly rate) $228 plus $15/wk for 50 amp. Friendly welcome, staff just gearing up for the influx of winter visitors (we were there 11/10 - 11/17), maps, calendars & such not quite ready. The sites are somewhat narrow but because they’re offset, they’re visually appealing. They are mostly level with mature trees on most. This is an older campground - combination asphalt, seal-coat & gravel roads in need of repair, lots of cracking and tripping potential - watch your step!! There are picnic tables at most sites but no entry-way patios, grassy areas in between sites which had been paved - now grown over or crumbled to time. The sites are barely long enough for really big motorhomes and their toads. We had a 37’ 5th wheel and our f-350 dually had to park crosswise in the front. Only 2 dumpsters for the entire location. Great cable (65+ channels) - easily found satellite signal. Activity oriented park - free bi-weekly pancake breakfast, hot dogs BBQ, ice cream social, crafts, ladies coffee, Bible study and pot luck dinner. Close to beautiful Lake Amistad and Mexico. The park accepts mail for campers.

Very pleasant park - clean and friendly. Nice little community area that is outdoors, but under-roof. While we were there they were having a child's birthday party - complete with jumping castle. It looked like a good time was had by all. The pool is gorgeous and really sparkling clean. Our site was level and quite ample. The on-site owners are very involved, friendly and concerned. We were guided to and into our pull-through site. Propane on site and refilled tank delivered to your unit, if you wish. Nice little gift shop, well stocked with all nature of Texas Treasures. We enjoyed our relaxing 7 night stay in our 37' fifth wheel. Had a little trouble getting local TV (no cable) but WiFi was great. Will stay here again next time we're through this area.

Pleasant KOA - pricey of course, but that's typical for KOA's. This is definitely a campground and not an "RV Resort". They do have a miniature golf and pleasant overall forested setting. Gravel sites and interior roads. Rustic and well treed camp area - some of the sites were set at angles, making it slightly difficult to maneuver our 37' fifth wheel into the spot, but they always have an escort to guide & help. If you bring a 'big rig' motorhome, make sure you ask for a straight through pull-through, the staff is very accommodating. We were there in the early spring, and by 3 p.m. they were full! Might be a good idea to make reservations if you're passing through at a popular time of year. (glad we had reservations) Although this is quite near the freeway, it was very quiet. Lots of bird and little critter to watch. Limited gift and RV Supply - lots of little statuary, wooden footbridges and other rustic touches, this is definitely a well-kept camp. Free WiFi and nice cable. We'll stay here again if in we're in the area.

This campground looked really nice on the internet. When we called for information, however, the owner/manager was rude or was apparently having a really bad day - so rude that we decided not to stay there. Upon arriving in Fort Davis (staying at another RV Park) and driving by the Overland, we found we had made the right decision as the place looked like a real dump.

This is a new park - open only 7 months. Located in a quiet grassy valley, surrounded by small rocky bluffs, it is far from any main roads. We received a very friendly welcome from the owners that live on property, manage the park and operate a locally renowned grill also on the park property. Although this is not a resort, the facilities are delightful and well thought-out. The four showers are in private 10' by 10' rooms with individual toilets and pedestal sinks. There is a large plasma TV in the well-stocked social room (puzzles, games, books). There is a grocery mart (in the process of being stocked) in the office area. The small laundry (2 washers, 2 dryers) has comfortable waiting area with bar stools & a television. The Office, social room and bathhouse surround a small courtyard with bistro style tables and a small fountain. Satellite has a good picture with a 12 channel line-up including 3 HBO's. Free WIFI is intermittent at this time, the owners will be installing an omni-directional booster. The park accepts mail for campers and the owner will deliver to your site. There are no extra or hidden charges [unlike the Lost Alaskan RV Park, another nearby park). The interior gravel roads are wide & easily maneuvered. There is no pool, but there are future plans for a spa. Nicely spaced gravel sites are large and level, some have BBQs, ramadas and picnic tables – there are slabs for the ramadas, but no entry-side patios. Each site is separated from its neighbor by wide grassy areas. The park is nicely treed with young maples and birch - one tree between each site. As the trees mature they should provide shade for the campground. This little gem is a work in progress, a definite “must-do” if you’re in the area. The owners sincerely aim to please – this a great home base for visiting Big Bend Park. p.s. [We had originally thought about staying at Overland Trail Campground in Fort Davis until we talked to the manager who was rude and seemed to be having a really bad day (we later drove by and it looks like a real dump)- glad we came to MacMillen in the Highlands!

Easy access off I-10. Traffic noise during the day from busy trucking route that parallels the park. Night-time noise reduces to a quiet, mellow, far-away rumble. This park is like two parks in one. The center, back-in sites are incredibly wide and staggered in a checkerboard pattern so neighbors are not breathing down your slide-out. There are very few dumpsters for the entire park. This is the start-off point for Traks to Adventures, so sometimes this park is very full – if you want a center space, reservations might be in order. The other spaces, the pull-throughs, are very narrow and back up to a block wall that surrounds a huge semi-trailer rental yard. No room for picnic tables or much else, no trees – just dirt. El Paso is a windy place and all that dirt makes for lots of dust. Last time we stayed, we didn’t know to ask for a center site and got a pull-through. (I think the park employees automatically assign pull-thru's to anything longer than 30' or so). When we were in the pull-thru we did have room for our slides, but it was close. The park separates non-pet and pet owning campers – which is nice for folks who don’t think a yapping puppy is “cute”. The center, older section of the park is intermittently treed and easy to navigate – provided you’re comfortable backing in. Very friendly staff, sparkling clean indoor pool, good cable – no premium channels, but nice selection. Free WIFI which was good throughout the park. On-site propane and a guarded entrance at night. No Passport America or Escapee discounts. We’ll definitely stay here again enroute to the rest of our adventures. Stayed in a 37’ fifth wheel with plenty of room for our Ford F-350 dually parked on the side.

Nice enough campsite just out of town, but close enough to everything not to be bothersome. Not a resort by any means - moderate shade trees throughout the park. Staff was helpful with directions and restaurant suggestions. We were parked on the last row next to a side street which accommodated the morning construction traffic (think heavy equipment rumbling by at 6 a.m.) The sites were wide and level - outdoor amenities were sparse; each site had a picnic table. Mini-mart and gas station right next door (they had reasonably priced diesel) Phone & modem hook-up in the RV office. Free wi-fi and nice cable. This is a Passport park and just right for the price.

We stayed here 10 years ago and we were very impressed. Returned in March and were sorely disappointed. We asked for a pull-thru and when we arrived we found out that all of the pull-thrus are in the back row, up against the fence. The park and the freeway are separated by a semi-trailer rental lot - so the view was not spectacular. The noise was surprising non-existent. Free wi-fi worked great - even in the back row. All of the pull-thru sites are very close together - no tables,no room. No landscaping in that area. Great for an overnight, but don't spend any time here - at least in a pull-through. When we were here there were terrible wind storms so we didn't get to see much of the campgrounds. We did walk around and saw that the non pull-thrus were quite nice - tables, trees and the usual. So if you can back-in and you want to stay here awhile, try to get one of those sites. The staff was friendly and helpful, but just a little too regimented - cranked in newcomers as if they were simply working in a factory. Pricey park for what they offered.

Very pleasant park - seemed to be the best in the neighborhood. Quiet area and friendly staff. Amazing work-out room with more machines than some clubs we've seen. Huge indoor pool - nice "club room". Other than that, not much to talk about. The streets and the park are all gravel. Level sites are not defined, but they are wide and generous. No picnic tables or other site enhancements. Recently planted trees which will be wonderful in several years. Some permanent residents but no real "junky" looking rigs. Rail tracks somewhat nearby, with regular trips and blasting horn. If your rig has good sound insulation this probably won't bother you. If you're sound sensitive, don't stay here. The campground is within walking distance of downtown & adequate shopping (groceries, dollar stores, hardward, etc). We stayed here for a week and thoroughly enjoyed the neighborhood. Nice economical, quiet and clean place to stay in while sightseeing the area.
