Not much in Van Horn but this is a nice park with level pull-throughs. A couple of small dog runs and they're working on a larger one. Restaurant on site serves breakfast and dinner pretty good for price but limited menu. It's very quiet. Fills up quickly. Better to call than make on-line reservation, or just show up. We have stayed here several times. Not much else between Van Horn and El Paso or Van Horn and Kerrville if you want to drive more than a couple of hours.
Price reflects monthly winter rate. We were here for 6 weeks in a peninsula site right on the River. Very clean, security very good, river access great, beach between each peninsula. Restaurant mediocre and over priced but good atmosphere, nice bar, etc. Route 66 at Topak restaurant excellent and close. Shopping in Needles about 10 miles. Will definitely spend more time there if we have opportunity.
Very nice, quiet, beautiful pools, and nice river views. Lots of good dog walking. There had been a lot of rain when we were there, but they were working hard to make everything right. Gated and seemed secure. Some road noise, but we were not bothered by it. Not sure on the rate but it was close to $35.
We love this park and have stayed here previously. It is for "loners on wheels" meaning singles, but they take everyone and it is not a singles only park. The entire park is gravel, very neat and quiet, everyone is very friendly, and it is kept up very well. Price was $17+ and reflects Passport America rate.
Good, clean, pull-through sites. Some concrete and most roads good--all are good enough. Nice dog runs. Wi-Fi is terrible and, while my Verizon showed good service, my laptop could not operate using my iPhone or iPad hotspots yet worked fine outside the park. We spent two nights so I could catch up on banking, etc., so time wasted. Noise from tall metal buildings next door and that could also have affected my Internet service. Did laundry and grocery shopping so not all was lost. Freeway and train noise but didn't bother us. I would have given an 8 if the Wi-Fi had worked out.
Nice RV Park. Brochure says 65 full hookup sites. Nice gift shop. Restrooms and laundry are open 24 hours. Fenced dog run. Propane available as is a dump station. We stayed one night and would stop here again.
Nicer than most KOAs that we have been to lately. Nice fishing lake, good dog walking, game room, playground, brochure says outdoor pool--I just don't remember. We needed a break and stayed two nights. Would stay here again. Price reflected KOA membership.
I don't recall what we paid but it was very reasonable. We arrived on a Saturday and it was very crowded there were few sites left. It is very rustic, in the trees,and we had some trouble navigating into our site with no offer of help from owner. Some sites were fairly level but getting to them wasn't necessarily level and we did crimp the bed rail on the truck when we were getting out of our site to leave . They have a very busy canoe and kayak rental business and the big draw is the Pere Marquette River which is 2 miles away. A shuttle service is available. Arriving at a less busy time would have resulted in a better site. There may have been a few sites with water closer to the road. They do have a dump station. We stayed several days because we were kayaking. It might be okay for an overnight stop not on the weekend.
We really like this park but keep in mind we do not like the stereotyped big rig parks. The sites are pretty level and gravel. Access is easy as was leveling. No problem with the electricity. The sites are fairly well spaced apart. Lots of trees but our satellite still worked. The rate reflected the PassPort America rate. There is a nice little store. The park seems quiet. Not a lot of amenities but all we need for a night or two. We camped in a large fifth wheel and would come back here.
Loved this park and had a concrete slab site right on the river where we watched the barges from benches set along the river's edge. We did not notice any unusual smells as someone indicated. There was some noise from the barges on the river and some planes flying over and maybe even a train in the distance but it didn't bother us. I walked the dogs in the morning and there are several other groupings of sites. All of the river sites are set on an angle to the river so you can see out from the back or side windows if a fifth wheel. Easy to find although there was some dirt getting in but not bad. Very clean and they picked up trash 3x a day. I think this is the place that had free laundry We were here in a fifth wheel for only one night and wish we could have stayed another night as watching the activity on the river was fascinating
Typical KOA in that the sites were very close together. What used to be large pull thrus are now two sites.They had us pull through the site behind us to get to our site and then they left us parked so that we couldn't get our big slide out because we were too close to a tree. Mgr. came and said they weren't in habit of letting people change sites and we could move over 2' so we did which put us over the sewer hookup. We made it work. To leave we had to use two empty sites in front of us to get out, otherwise people would have had to move. Lucky they were empty. They don't seem to realize you can't turn most 5th wheels 90 degrees. Very clean, right on the river but only tents camp on the river's edge. We stayed here in a 5th wheel; it has changed ownership since I was there last and I would not stay here again. Very unfriendly employees.
On Upper Peninsula, drop dead gorgeous location. Only 6 RV sites and they can be difficult to get into. We kayak fished right from the camp. They rent pontoon boats and kayaks and the fishing was good. We felt comfortable leaving our own kayaks tied to a tree. There are about 6-8 small cabins and a couple of larger cabins. We had trouble with our EMS shutting down our power when the voltage got too low. I think we were at the end of the line electricity-wise. After the cabins emptied out we had no more trouble but electricity was 20 amp so we only used it for lights, TV, etc. Told the owner and he just said he had 40' rigs in there with no problem so he obviously didn't understand that size makes no difference in electrical. Playground for the kids, sand, and shallow water quite a ways out. We would stay there again knowing it's difficult access but beautiful lake and views.
Nice little park right off the interstate. Heard train a few times, but noise didn't bother us. Sites close together. Friendly management. Has a fenced doggie area, laundry, free wireless internet. We have stayed here previously. We would stay here again for an overnight.
Very nice park. Good kayaking, but water levels were low and there was a lot of moss. Only complaint is that after the weekend, Sunday actually, the restrooms were a total disaster. Inmates came in on Monday and scrubbed everything and worked on landscaping. If you want quiet, drive around the park as it is very large, very nice, and you can get more secluded site than we had, but won't have 50 amp. We were close to playground and a group of four tents and they were very noisy. You could be more selective but the tents moved in after we did. Tenters thought it was daylight until 1:00 a.m. We stayed for four nights and would stay there again.
There seem to be a lot of amenities but it is an old park. I pretty much agree with the last reviewer. We came here because we had been without good Wi-Fi for 6 days and I needed to catch up on some work and do laundry. There is a miniature golf course and a pool and they apparently serve some food at a little cafe by the pool. Pretty crowded park with sites close together. Nice laundry. Clean. Apple users beware that you have to go to office to connect to Wi-Fi.
Nice sites, concrete pads, BBQ they need to get their WiFi working. Heard lots of complaints. Phone (Verizon ) seems OK. Have two laptops, a smartphone and iPad and none could connect. Relative stayed in cabin and had same problem. Only one washer out of four in our section was working. The grounds are immaculate and there is lots to do but if you really need Internet connection, it may be a deal breaker. We were there on promo and rate was for each of two,extra nights.
Still a nice, clean park, concrete pads. Quiet towards the back of park but may be noisy up by the road. Great restaurant with catfish and other good main courses; "homemade" rolls, fried pies, and apple fritters. Good places to walk dogs. Two small "ponds" at back might be buggy in summer. We would definitely stay here again.
Park grounds were clean. Gravel roads and sites fairly level. Close to I-40 and right across road from major truck stop. Very noisy. If they have restrooms, they were not open, and we had to use the motel next door for showering. We felt they were way over-priced considering the location. We would not stay here again.
