Rate is with the Federal Senior Pass. We loved our site #73. It's on a loop with only one other site. It was a large pull through and right on the lake. I would give this park a higher rating if it had sewer. One note: We tried the showers but even with the water running for a few minutes it remained cold. Maybe because it was early in the season and not used enough? Not the best shower rooms we've been in at a COE by a long shot. Be aware gates are locked at 11 and open 6 am.
It is a P/A affiliate. We pulled in a little after 2 pm to find the office closed for the day. We called the number left on the door. The person who answered said to pick out a site and see her the next day. We drove around and everything looked just too sketchy. Everything looked like permanent rigs. Little rundown. Did not find a site that looked welcoming. Decided to head on up the road.
Quoted rate is for FHU. However, there are only a few FHU sites. Most are either electric or electric/water. Nothing fancy here. Lots of permanent residents. But the park is clean and well kept. Close to Route 69 but back a long drive into the park. Abundant deer walking around the campground. We would stay here again if in the area.
Rated quoted is the Passport America discount rate. We really like this park. The owners were exceptionally friendly and helpful. Lots of seasonable sites but all well kept. The pool was clean and well maintained. The grandchildren liked that they have a playground. The store was well stocked. We like that they have a slide card entry gate. The site was level and clean. The laundry room cleaned daily. We did not visit the activity halls nor bathrooms so can not comment on them. We would stay here again if in the area.
Rate quoted is the monthly rate. We always like this park. Clean, very clean. Pull in sites could be a bit longer but far from a deal breaker. Nice cement pads, grassy area with grill and table. All well maintained. Currently they are in the process of expansion. Best park in the area.
Lots of permanent sites but that is expected in this economy. The site was on dirt/gravel and not quite level but placing one board under one side did the job. The managers are really nice and friendly. Noise in evening due to close proximity to Naval Air Station. But that's okay the sound of freedom. An added bonus, the FREE use of the two washers and dryers.
This is our favorite COE park. The cost indicated is with the Federal Senior Passport discount. Huge sites, FHU, picnic table, fire ring. Even a laundry but with only two washers and dryers. Playgrounds for the kiddies. Very well maintained. Be sure to reserve EARLY! Most weekends are fully booked months in advance.
Rate reflects Passport America discount. This is a small campground behind the owners house. A couple of permanent rigs on site. Little more than a dirt parking lot with hookups. There appears to be no attempt to level the sites. On a positive side there is a clean laundry with decent rates. It was an okay stay but really nothing to attract anyone to this area.
Rate is for PA. Very nice workers. The camp is quite clean and well tended. Clean laundry. Sparkling pool although we did not use it. Nice tables at each site. Shade trees do not interfere with slides. Pull through sites could be a wee bit longer. Not a lot of senseless rules like many campgrounds. Easy on and off to I-90, but no noise noticed. There is a train that passes by a few times a day but we did not find it a nuisance.
We like this little city owned RV park. Would rate higher if it had sewer. Sits on a small "lake" which actually looks more like a stream. Police office comes around at night to collect the fee. Just pull in and pick a site. Sites are large but be aware the hookups are a distance. We needed to use our electrical extension and a long water hose. Showers and bathhouse are adequate. The police officer told us that in case of tornado warnings they come to the park to notify guests. Shelter is about 600 feet away in a church basement. Easy to get to from I-70 with great signage all along the way.
Rate reflects Passport America. This campground is now for sale but still operating. Grassy even sites. A decent over-night place. When we were there we were one of only one or two other guests. Perhaps later in the year there are more. Young man who is managing it for his parents was very accommodating. Again, a good over-night place.
This park is a GEM. The above rate reflects the weekly discount. The place is clean, the sites are on level concrete. Enough room between rigs. Each site has a picnic table and grill. Plenty of overflow parking. Clean laundry. Pool not open yet but looks to be well kept. This is a fairly new park. A beautiful check in area with coffee available. The staff could not be more friendly or accommodating. There is a fishing pond and pet area. Only thing they could do to improve would be a playground for the kids. We sometimes travel with grandchildren and they love the campgrounds that have a play area. We will always stay here when in the area.
Rate quoted is the off season Passport America rate. Sites are large enough. Each has a fire pit. Surrounding area is hilly as is the campground. Check in was easy and staff pleasant. Only one washer and dryer and cost is high - $2.00 to wash/$2.00 to dry. Only one shower/bathroom and a distance away from most of the sites. Would stay here again. Very clean park.
Our rate reflects the daily rate staying one week. This is a very clean park with nice people at the desk. We are amazed at how many people arrive each afternoon. As it is less than 1/2 mile from Interstates 81 and 77, that is understandable. In October it is almost full each night. Would suggest asking for sites 1 to 27 as they are much wider. All other sites are very close together - the only drawback.
We like this park. Sites are large. Camp hosts great people. Having sewer would make it perfect. If you have satellite TV, ask for site 2. Has the most open area to get a signal. Nice walking trails and lovely lake, but no swimming permitted. Rate quoted is the Federal Golden Age Pass rate.
Rate is the Escapees discount rate. This place is okay, just okay. Most sites appear to be those of seasonals. Would have rated this campground higher but for three things. (1) No sewer. (2) The laundry is just one regular size washer and dryer. The cost is $2.00 a load. The highest we've encountered for a washer and dryer of this size. Only cold water allowed in the washer. My load consisted of one set of sheets, one towel, three sets of underwear and socks. The towel was still very wet as were the socks after going through the dryer. I was not about ready to sink two more dollars into it. (3) There is only one overhead light in the bathrooms. Therefore showers very dark and the floors are all concrete. Wear shower shoes! On the positive side - it's a clean park. Grass always cut. Pool appears well tended. Person at the store helpful and friendly. Bathrooms and laundry room clean.
This facility is a GEM! The rate quoted is the rate with a Federal Senior Access Card. The views great, the sites large, a very clean park. We were impressed as this was our first experience in a COE park. However, make reservations early in the year. Impossible to get in on a weekend if you don't.
The rate quoted is the Passport America rate. This is a good family park. Decent playground and swimming pool. On a Sunday afternoon our power went out. We asked surrounding campers but they had no problem. The electric would attempt to come on but our surge protector would immediately shut it down again. We were on 50 amp. We changed to the 30 amp outlet and had no issue. We notifed office and only a few minutes later a gentleman showed up. He said they would contact the electrician. Sure enough, at 9 am Monday the electrician was at our site. He worked on the 50 amp and we soon were set to go! The response to this issue was more than satisfactory. The laundry was clean and reasonably priced. We stayed here before years ago, would stay again.
This is a nice enough campground for families. Appears good for family outings. However, LOTS OF RULES. Another thing, very low water pressure. A little too pricy for us as fulltimers. Reason here is to visit family in the area, otherwise would not consider staying here. Would be a budget breaker. Good clean swimming pool. Grass mowed and all sites look well tended.
The rate quoted above is the nightly rate if staying for a week. We like this campground. The staff is extremely helpful and friendly. There are flower plantings and trees throughout. It appears each site has a fire ring. A very clean park. The only negative is that some sites have un-useable areas as they sit on a terraced area. But we have found nothing that would make us not stop here again if in the area.
We could not believe this deal. Free campsite. When we asked how long we could stay, was told no limit. There appears to be at least two older rigs that are actually living here FREE! No campsite charge, no utilities - FREE. There is security constantly driving around the parking lot. Each person is given a $10 voucher for the slots to be used THAT day. On Monday's both get another one. On Tuesday, the woman. On Wednesday if over age 55 both get one. On Thursday, the man. Casino sits on a hill surrounded by open fields. Can get quite windy. Again, what a deal! We will be staying 5 days and return if in the area.
This park has seen better days, much better days. We stayed because of it's closeness to I-40 and the P/A rate. Lots of broken down buildings, did not look at the shower room. Afraid to. This being said, we would stay overnight again if in the area and needed an easy on/off park.
Rate is Escapees discount with paying cash. This is a good park for a quick stay in the area. The person checking us in was quite nice. There is a book trading center and a small gift shop. Prices were reasonable. We would stay here again. However, the train right behind the park ran every few minutes all night. Did not blow the whistle, thankfully.
The rate quoted is the monthly rate. The sites are quite large. The people walking by and while driving around love to wave to you. We did not partake of activities. They have a 4 o'clock social hour where we went once but it was not as in other Escapees parks. We did not go back. We expected a more friendly group judging from our experience at the other parks. Apparently the people waving and stopping to talk are not the same ones at social hour. But we do like the park and would return.
The per night rate quoted reflects the weekly rate. This is a quiet campground. Mostly all pull throughs. Appear to be lots of permanent residents, but all sites seem well kept. If first coming into park after dark be careful as it is on a narrow winding road with some deep ditches at curves. Laundry room is very clean. Bathrooms look to be cleaned daily. When in area, we would come here again.
We enjoyed our weeks here. The people were friendly. We attended many of their activities however, it was the same group of people who always attended. For some reason, most do not. The only downside it there is very little grassy areas for picnic tables and some sites do not even have that. We will return if we should ever be back in the area.
We were here for a Rally. We have stayed in other Rally parks but this is by far the best. We were a little too closely packed in, but sometimes that is to be expected. The connecting campground, RV dealership and repair center appear to be first class. The only complaint: there are only two washers and dryers meant to handle a large rally field plus the campground. And they are in a little alley with no place to comfortably fold or hang clothes. That being the only issue, we would have no problem returning here.
The rate quoted is Passport America rate. Glad we did not have to pay more. This place is WAY back a very narrow winding road. Most of the sites look to be permanent residents. A few are run down but most look well kept. Only staying one night. Sure would not go out of my way to return. Store very limited - maybe because near end of season.
Note - the $18 rate is the Passport America rate. As others have said, the roads leading to this campground are much in need of repair. The roads inside the campground are narrow but manageable. The site we were assigned was tight and could use at least one tree to be removed. There are many seasonable sites but all of them look well tended. The sites are larger than many campgrounds we have been in. The pool looks clean as does the social hall. As far as the restrooms and showers, it appears they are in the process of replacing them. We saw a recently build restroom and a sign on an older one saying it was being replaced before the 2011 season. The store was well stocked, the laundry room next to the store looked well cared of. So, other than the very bad roads to get to it, this campground is more than satisfactory.
We picked a great time to visit Texas Hill Country. The wildflowers were in full bloom. And this campground is surrounded by them. The views across the lake are outstanding. There were few campers here this time of year. The place was very quiet. The office staff seemed to have limited hours, which is understandable with so few camp sites being used. We will go back again if in the area.
This was our first experience at an Escapees Park as we are new fulltimers. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We were asked at registration if we needed Wi-Fi. As we have an air card, we declined. We were told that our air card would not be usable as the signal there was poor for Sprint. However, we tried anyway and had excellent reception on both our phones and Internet connection. We attended their nightly informational hour at 4:00 and found most people very sociable. We will go back again when in the area and will use other Escapees parks throughout the country.
We camped here two previous years when it was Eagles Nest. It is evident this year that a lot of money was spent over the last year it upgrades. Good, wide paved roads, new pool (too small), new bathhouses, etc. However, we will not be back. We were told next year rates go to$79 in the regular section with a 7 night minimum. We've always stayed 4 nights. This might be fine for someone who chooses this for their week, which we don't.
We camped here with Good Sam Rally. We were out in the Rally field. Unfortunately they were not adequately able to provide ample electric service to a group this large in 90+ heat. We kept losing power and having to have the breaker reset. The campground was responsive each time the electric went off. Hopefully they can get this problem resolved.
We recently spent from Monday to Friday there. As far as we could determine we were the only people there during that time except for a few seasonals who came and went. I suppose this was because it was weekdays and schools were still in session. A couple of trailers came in Thursday night, surely during the weekend the place would be fuller. The daily cost is $40.00. However, we found we had to pay an additional 4.00 a night for 50 amp. Also, the reservation is for two people only. All children older than 5 are an additional $4.00 a night. There were lots of seasonal sites, and most were very well maintained. The sites are quite large with trees between most sites. It is in a wooded setting. The manager/owners seemed friendly enough.
We loved this park. It is kept immaculate. The park rangers are constantly patroling the area, empting the trash cans and doing maintenance work. To make things even better, they accept the Golden Age Pass so the usual $18 fee was only $9.00. This is a nice place to just sit back, relax and enjoy nature. The deer even put on a show behind our site.
Where we camped there was no sewer hookups, but there are dump stations which we used on the way out. The only issue we had was that we were with a group and were using a pavillon. Apparently the rules are really strict here. We moved some tables around to give us room to play a game. Someone came by on a golf cart and told us to put the tables back how they had them NOW! From that point on we felt we were being closely watched. However, we do plan on going back again next year.
The campground apparently has new owners this year. They all went out of their way to accommodate us. On Sunday morning we found we had no pancake syrup after having made pancakes. Store was to open at 9 but they saw us there at 8 and came over and opened it for us. This is a smaller park with many seasonal rigs there, some of them having seen better days. The place needs lots of work it but it was evident the new owners were up to the challenge.
