We overnighted here. Pleasant park with friendly staff. It is clean and well maintained. I-10 access is very good. We would definitely stay here again.

We had planned a short stay here and ended up staying a week. This park is quiet, clean and well maintained with attractive grounds. Staff is friendly. We were there in off season so most people there were "residents" which was a mix of young military couples and retirees. There were very few children; there is a pool but no playground. We definitely plan to return for a longer stay.

We stopped here overnight. Rate reflects 50 amp and Good Sam discount. Park appears to be fairly new. There are no trees, sites are gravel. Many sites appear to be permanently occupied. Easy access off the interstate.

We stayed here overnight. It was very difficult to level and ended up changing sites. Cable was out and too many trees for satellite. Rate, which is too high for what you get, reflects 50 amp and Good Sam discount. Access from interstate was easy.

This was our second stay in this park. While it has a pool and small play ground, I would not call it family friendly. Both times we have been here it seemed to primarily cater to an older, retired population. TV reception and WiFi are both iffy, best bet for WiFi is the middle of row D in front of the bath house. Because of the trees, TV reception via satellite or antenna is iffy. Rate reflects 30 amp and Good Sam discount.

This is a large, pleasant park with friendly, accommodating staff. It is well maintained. Like most places we stayed this summer we found it to be over priced for what is provided. Our nightly rate reflects 30 amp electric and the Good Sam discount. The first few nights we were here were great; it was quiet, no problem with getting in showers or restrooms. Then came the holiday weekend. Every site was occupied, most had at least two cars at the site, so there were nearly a 1,000 people using the facilities. There are only 4 women showers and toilet facilities and the same number for men. Not near enough for that number of people. While clean, the facilities are old and dated. The women's shower I was in was vented by two small windows and became very steamy very quickly. If we stayed here again, I would make sure we avoided any holidays.

With this park it is all about location, there is no ambiance. The park is really just a parking lot with electric and water hook ups, but the view and convenience more than make up for any thing else. Bringing a big rig in is a little hairy, I checked GPS directions with staff, who emailed the best route. One thing that would have been good to know is distance to the exit, we had a moment of panic thinking we were going to have to find a place to turn around. Getting to the subway, train or ferry into NYC is very easy. There is a good, casual restaurant steps away and an upscale restaurant within walking distance. I felt this was a very safe area. There are also several places that deliver to the park. If you want to take a tour of the city, they will pick you up. Showers and restrooms were clean. We would stay here again.

This was our second stay here, I consider it a park, not a campground. The park has received major awards in the past two years. It is quiet, and while there is a playground and pool, it seems to primarily cater to adults. The sites are wide, level and well maintained. It is hard to not give it a 10. BUT..I had major problems with Wi-Fi, and totally gave up the last day; there were major problems with cable that we should not have had, and needed up having to attach a special box. Park personnel were less than helpful, in fact surly is a better description in dealing with these issues. I do not understand the rationale for $ showers to begin with, these showers have no hooks or shelves, to avoid putting your belongings on the wet floor you must place a plastic stacking chair in an already small space. You have 7 minutes (maybe) to adjust the water temperature and shower before the water runs out. I was willing to overlook much of this and go with a ten until I had to use the laundry. It is stuck in the walk ot basement of the owners house/office. It is dirty and the machines are not in good repair. I expect the ARVC park of the year to be a 10 in all areas.

Overpriced and crowded, verging on seedy. My conclusion is that the country western theme was adopted to cover up the lack of maintenance. Staff is less than friendly or helpful. Most sites are seasonal, very few available for transient. I am not sure where the 50 amp sites are, we ended up with 30; we carry several different sized sewer connectors, none of which fit, and we have never seen a water connector like this...the neighbor that showed us how it works said he had never seen one before either. Many, many many kids, lots of traffic and noise. Cable was snowy, and even though our site was open, could not get satellite. Park should not advertise having WiFi, connection was nearly impossible. Would not stay here again.

Park has a few full hook up sites, but black water and grey water connections are separate. When we tried to hook up, we could not dump grey water since the connector neck was full. This park has $showers, which is something I have never understood, none the less, we had to use them since we could not dump grey water. I question big rig access to most of this park, the road to our site was up a steep incline and very rough. To leave we had to take a very circuitous route from our site. WiFi reception was spotty. We would keep driving rather than stay here again.

Overpriced, overcrowded and unappealing visually (hanging baskets of flowers do not count as landscaping). There is a sharp turn getting into the park, checking in took a long time and staff was not customer oriented. I made reservations and requested site -A128 when we checked in we were assigned A120 which is a big difference. A120 is directly across from the playground and on the corner where all incoming traffic passes. The playground is basically a huge sand box, and given the large number of children, much of it ends up in the shower and restrooms. There were heavy rains while we were there, sites in the lower areas had standing water and lots of mud. Given the effort made to attract families and children cleaning restrooms once a day is not adequate. Also, trash pickup at noon is inadequate, I do not like having dinner trash in the motorhome over night; there are no dumpsters. WiFi was intermittent and cable was snowy, and even though our site was not treed, we had difficulty with satellite. I would not stay here again.

Probably one of the nicest parks we have stayed in. Clean, well maintained grounds. Staff very pleasant. Wish our schedule had allowed a longer stay.

Rate paid is weekly with Good Sam discount. This is a very large park, convenient to many of the motor home manufacturers and the RV museum. It appears to be an old KOA; shower, restroom and laundry facilities are old but clean. Campground is quiet and well maintained. We would stay here again.

This park is a very big park and is more about camping and less about RVs. Most sites are permanent and since we were here on a Saturday night, most were occupied. We were given two sites so we could pull through, but because of trees, turns getting into and out of it were tight. There were two tents on sites next to us, even though there was a tent camping area. The camp map stated there were eight showers but we only found two each for men and women. Wi-Fi is available if you pay for it. We would overnight here again if nothing else was available. Rate reflects Good Sam discount.

There are literally two sides to this park. The side across the creek from the office is where most of the long term sites and the deluxe sites are. It is shaded, mowed and sites are in good shape. The smaller, transient side where we stayed is not as appealing visually. We found the staff to be friendly and helpful. We would overnight here again.

Nice, well maintained campground, but like many we encounter I think it is over priced for what you get. It is close to the Interstate, but noise was not a problem. Staff is friendly and helpful. Facilities are older, but well maintained and clean. TV was a problem. Cable is limited and analog and satellite was spotty because of the trees. Wi-Fi signal was weak at our site. Rate reflects Good Sam discount.

I read reviews for early July concerning shower and restroom facilities and thought that surely corrections had been made by then end of the month. Not to be. The new bath house appears to be completed, but not in use. Conditions in the temporary facility were unacceptable. I have heard of unisex showers, but in the same room? There were no hooks for towels, no benches or chairs for personal items. The RV pads are gravel, there are no trees. There is not a pool or anything but the casino to recommend this campground. Food at the casino is mediocre at best.

Small park, and some sites are close together. The larger sites appeared to be back in and mostly long term. There are some manufactured homes at the front of the park that appeared well maintained. We were in a pull through that backed up to the upper trail along the river and faced the swimming pool. In spite of the extreme drought and heat in Texas this summer the park was still green. The upper and lower trails along the river had bench's and swings that made for a pleasant retreat. There was also a small fishing pier. Staff was not particularly friendly or helpful, but that was a small matter. Rate reflects Good Sam discount.

This park is basic; I can't really complain, but can't really rave about it either. The "lake" is a man made pond that was nearly dry. Many of the sites are occupied long term. The park is neat, staff at check in was friendly. My major complaint is the gravel roads are very dusty. I also found it interesting that while the rules say no vehicle washing the camp hosts children offering to wash vehicles; people had their pets in the restrooms and smoked in restrooms in spite of rules. Not sure I would return to this park.

I truly wish there was a rating lower than one. After a long day of hard driving with strong winds, rough roads, heavy truck traffic and construction, we tried to find a campground before we got to Little Rock and rush hour traffic. We settled on T Rick's which is basically a service station with RV sites behind it. Sites were covered with dry grass that must have been a foot high when it was mowed. At 2:00 am a semi truck pulled through the site next to ours to turn around (it sounded like he was coming through the bedroom!) then parked on the road exiting the park. When I opened the blinds in the morning every road in and out of the park had an eighteen wheeler parked on it. Going back to sleep after the eighteen wheeler passed through was almost impossible because of the road noise. With any luck we won't have to drive through Arkansas again, but if we do and need a place to park we will go to the Walmart in Carlisle. We have never stopped at Walmart but it would have to be much better.

This was our second stay at this park; it is a nice, family owned campground with friendly, helpful staff. WiFi signal is good. Over air TV signal was so-so and we had difficulty getting satellite. (We were in the 50 amp pull through sites.) This is a good short stay campground. Sites and facilities are well maintained. Restrooms are older but clean. Laundry is small (two washers and dryers) but clean. We will stay here again.

This is an older campground, and sites are very close together. There appears to be a large number of permanent rigs here, and the best sites, those along the creek, do not have full hook up. The road to the campground is narrow; we hoped we did not meet another vehicle before we got to the office. Campground was full, lots of children. Wi-Fi was very good and reliable, and the cable was clear but the strangest channel numbering system we had ever encountered. Restrooms are old but appeared clean. This is the only campground we ever saw that had carpet on restroom/shower floors. Not sure we would come back here.

We needed a park convenient to the District and Northern Virginia and this one met our needs. We checked out other parks in the area (Pohick Bay is nice, but a little remote and camping with a capitol "C". Aquia Pines Camp Resort appeared to be primarily monthly residents in the FHU area, the other sites would be very difficult for us to get into). Travel Trailer Village is a basic, no frills, utilitarian park. We had FHU with 30 amp which we found to be adequate (we were here in September and were not using AC). Sites are close together and just large enough for RV and one vehicle. The staff was friendly, and the park well maintained; restrooms and laundry were very clean. Access to I-95 and shopping is good. We will stay here again.

We pulled in here for an overnight. Nice park with very friendly staff, we are retired and "family friendly" is not important to us, but I must say the fall decorations outside the office were certainly appealing! The sharp turn at the entrance did not give us problems. Sites are grassy (were gravel at one time), some have concrete patios and some are shaded. More interstate noise at the sites toward the back of the park. Wi-Fi and satellite reception were good. Laundry is small, four washers and dryers that appeared new, and very clean. Restrooms are also very clean. We would stop here again.

We were looking for a campground with easy access to Northern Virginia and DC with full hookup. This KOA is unusual in that it is way off the beaten track; you drive several miles down a winding, hilly country road to get here. If you are looking for a quiet, relaxing camping experience, or Fredericksburg and Richmond are your destination this could be a great place. Unfortunately, we needed easier, quicker access to grand kids and the DC area. If you come here, staff is very friendly and accommodating, cable and Wi-Fi are good and if you pick your site carefully leveling is not a problem and you can get satellite. Laundry is small but adequate.

I had a difficult time choosing a rating for this park. They had experienced a great deal of rain prior to our visit. Roads were washed out in places and rutted which made tight turns more difficult. Concrete pads are fairly close together but leveling was easy. Restrooms were nicely done but floors were tracked and sandy. The last day we were here they finally put a mat at the restroom door to help with the problem. Some cable channels reminded me of watching TV in the 60's--lots of snow. Trees prevented satellite connection. Wi-Fi signal was good. We were here over a weekend and there was a lot of traffic; the speed limit is not enforced.

We stopped here for one night and ended up staying two in order to explore the antique stores in Selma. This is a nice, small campground with some full time residents. Our site (C2) was next to the lake and the ducks kept the cat well entertained. Restrooms, showers and laundry were very clean (some of the cleanest we have encountered). The campground is very close to I-95 but we did not find that to be a problem. Staff was very friendly and helpful. This is a great short stay park. We would stay here again.

This is a beautiful, well maintained campground with lots of large trees. Roads in the campground are paved which is a real plus. The staff is friendly, but not always knowledgeable about the sites. We were here 10 days and saw someone different each time we were in the office. The trees are beautiful but make satellite reception difficult. Staff did not have information on what sites reception would be best (If you visit the park sites in the middle of the OO,PP, and QQ rows are your best bet if you want satellite.) The pool is nice, but close to the road. I would have rated this campground 10 except for the laundry which is inadequate for a park this size. It only has four washers, is very small with no room for folding and is very hot. Also, the Wi-Fi is the worst I have ever experienced in a campground. I have had dial up that was faster, and the signal was very inconsistent. There were days when I could not get a connection at all.

We spent one night in this campground. It was quiet, with easy access and friendly staff. Park appeared to be clean and well maintained. We would definitely stay here again.

I am not sure I would classify this as a resort. There is no pool or game courts, etc., but it is a very nice park, built in 2008. There are a few shaded sites on the perimeter of the park, but they are mostly used by full-time residents. The pull-through sites have a very tight turn that we could not get into; however the back ins were easy to access. Fifth wheels did not seem to have as much trouble making the turns. Restroom and showers (bathroom suites) were very clean except for the floors (are the floors mopped in any RV park public areas?) as was the laundry. There is a very nice club house. There were plenty of vacancies when we were here, but understand the park is very busy in the winter. Park is very convenient to Fairhope, outlet mall, beaches and Mobile. Rate is based on the weekly rate of pay for five nights and get two free. We would definitely stay here again.

The only things this campground has going for it are location and the wide sites. The campground is very conveniently located to attractions in Savannah. Sites are basically gravel pads lining two sides of a big field. We checked in on the phone and were given our site number. There was no information on where trash should be deposited, location of facilities, etc. The website is deceiving. Buildings are widely scattered. I do not know if there are showers, the restrooms are in an outhouse with running water, only one has a sink for hand washing. At $45 a night this is very over priced and not a good value. We would not return here.

Very nice park with friendly staff. Public areas really need to be cleaned. Trash in back laundry room and in ladies room appeared to have not been emptied in weeks, floors in all areas needed to be cleaned. That said we would come back to this park again.

This is the one of the most expensive parks we have stayed in. It is a very old park, there is no grass, only grass burrs. The pool is nice and restrooms are old but clean. It is about 300 yards across the street to the beach, which we did not find inviting. There is also a 6000 person capacity night club across the street that you can hear all night. Would not return to this park.
