We were looking forward in staying at this park and we were totally disappointed. Sites are all gravel and tight to get in and out without running over the grass. We picked a site that gave us only partial 50amp and didn't find out until after had broken camp and took our RV across the road to a RV dealer only to discover that the problem had nothing to do with our RV but with the pedestal at Cabela's. We spent almost 4 hours messing around with this problem. The staff in the store seemed not to be interested in our comments and as this was off season there was no water to any sites and nobody in the camp office. The Cable TV reception was terrible and barely watchable. Would not stay here again, It's dirty and not maintained as it should be.
Personally we are not fans of KOA although we were forced to this Campground due to the horrible stormy freezing weather. The sites are all gravel and far from being level. This park only operates from 1st April until the middle of October each year. The owners are the only reason we would return. They are superb and go out of their way to deliver top class customer service and are always smiling despite the weather which was terrible and grumpy guests like me. They make pizzas to order and deliver to the door and at a fair price. Yes, we would return only because of the owners.
Gravel sites overgrown with weeds but still useable just didn't look nice. The seemed reasonably level. Far enough away from the highway for there not to be any freeway noise and easy on and off. Owner was pleasant enough. Although this is a mobile home community, we did not see any residents and all the fixed sites looked well cared for. Would stay here again when traveling through.
Absolutely you need a reservation as this place gets very busy, despite it's size. The pull-throughs are wonderful and big but the back-in;s are not so good, due to an off the ground BBQ fire stove, which restricts the slide out at the rear from being extended. I am amazed how anybody could design a NEW RV Park and then erect a steel post where most RV's have a slide out, so one needs to either park on the grass or way forward so the truck is in the road, crazy. The guy on reception was so slow it took him 20 minutes to register just one guest, the manager came out and took over the next in line, which had now grown to 8 RV waiting. The facilities are all new and good but they lost points with me due to the back-in that are not long for a 35ft 5th wheel and truck, okay for a Class B or C or a small TT.
Warm welcome by the manager couple. Did not have a front RV site as a Rally was due in sometime, (and this was Tuesday). We only wanted 1 night. We were given a site near the Shuffle Board, we felt shoved away in a corner. The sewer connections were all open, which is a Federal and State misdemeanor. Site was gravel and very uneven. The RV Park gave a very run down appearance, grass looked cut but lacked edges, needing lots of care. We asked for air due to a low pressure in 1 tire which we did receive. The road in through the town is a nightmare and we asked before when making the reservation for directions as our GPS could not locate the place. When we mentioned the road, the comment was, "Oh I should have given you a different route. Too late when we had already arrived, grr..
This park is very quiet, well maintained and alongside Lake Buchanan, the water is very low but still accessible. The bathrooms are very clean and well maintained seemingly on a regular basis. No laundry facilities and a small children's playground. The sites are very spacious but not very level, although very shady. All have a fire ring and a above ground BBQ grill, alongside a gravel patio. Pets are allowed and as long as your pet is well behaved they can have a great time. I would have given this campground a higher rating but for the in-level sites.
Reservation was made ahead of time despite other reviews that stated otherwise. The receptionist was far from friendly, she was down right unhelpful. No site map, no assistance as to to how to find the site, "It's out there, they are all numbered sites." Big deal, thanks a lot. Round and around we drove, along very narrow strips of roads with tight bends. No host or work camper present. Eventually found the spot, yes it was a pull through but a very tight turn in. Went for free ice, none available all used up. Bathrooms covered with spider webs, and filthy, bowls splattered with human waste, no paper rolls as they were empty. Hand bowls and mirrors did not look as if they'd been cleaned for a long time. Laundry room was in reasonable condition. If you are looking for cleanliness and helpfulness, then this campsite is not for you. In one word: awful.
The restrooms never got cleaned in the 2 days we stayed here, restocked yes but never cleaned. The same dirty band aid was still on the floor as when we left. Black mold was all over the walls, trash never cleaned up inside and outside the restrooms. The check in staff were very good but the staff inside the campground most unfriendly and not a happy smile to be seen. The sites are very spacious but children wander around the sites with no respect for any privacy and do tend to be noisy. Large fires at almost every site even thou the temp was in the 85 plus area, I am unable to understand why people have 5 foot flames on hot nights, fires for marshmallows and cooking but not high flame thrower fires.
We paid our night rate and were then told that the only restroom available was in the laundry room and the activity room with the showers were closed for the summer season. Then we discovered that the laundry room closed at 9 PM and opened again at 7 AM. There was nobody else on the campground as it was summer and very hot. Yes the laundry got closed at 9 PM on the dot, goodness knows why, we were in a Pop-up so we needed the bathroom. We were most disappointed for a so called service industry to treat guests this way.
We were amazed at the low price and high quality of this campground. Staff very friendly and helpful. Bathrooms were exceptional, also included shampoo/conditioner and liquid soap, very clean and well maintained. Satellite TV connection. All of this for $14 a night, unbeatable value, plus great restaurants nearby.
Polite staff on check in. Huge sites and very well maintained. A tent was allowed in the RV sites which we found strange and there was a fire ban. This did not stop 2 RV'ers lighting huge fires which were left unattended. Security came around and did absolutely nothing about the fires. This caused us concern about our safety. Very nice walking trails. Shame that tent owners left their dog inside the tent unattended which the dog then ripped the tent into pieces. The dog needed pacifying which we did until the owners returned, not the dogs fault and they treated the dog with compassion which was good.
Lots of concrete and not easy to get into the sites. The one way system and the official exit is impossible to navigate and use so the entrance also became the exit. Staff polite and restrooms clean with a combination lock system. I guess if you arrived after hours access would be restricted. This park is absolutely not pet friendly, so many signs saying don't do this with your pet and no pet run. Overall a very cold sterile park.
Very nice park, exceptionally clean and well maintained. Staff generally polite on check; in the process was smooth and courteous. Bathrooms clean although the floors did not look too sparkling although maybe it was the tiles, but they looked as if they needed better cleaning. One disturbing aspect was the male workamper reprimanded my wife for allowing our Labrador for urinating on a tree. Gee, it's only water what harm does it do, but I guess we are the guests and he's told what to do, although it did mar our visit and that was a shame. Otherwise our rating would have been higher.
