I had made reservations and told the owner that we would be arriving around 3PM. The motorhome overheated with a broken belt (14 miles from our exit) and I called to tell him that we should cancel, because I wasn't sure if/when a repair would occur. At 10pm, we were ready to roll and I called asking if our site was still available and could we still come. Owner was pleasant and said yes then calling back and saying he would meet us in Galax as the road to the campground is dark and winding. We followed him to the campground and his wife had sent pumpkin raisin muffins with him which proved a wonderful late night snack. Our site was a pull through gravel base and was very level. Cable and Wi-Fi were and added bonus to the wonderfully naturalized site. We did not have AT&T reception for the cell, but the excellent Wi-Fi let us text to keep in touch at home. The park is in downtown Fries, and in walking distance to the New River Trail, town park, Fries Theater (great jam sessions on Thursday evenings) and a good Mexican Restaurant. Bring a bicycle as the trail is quite scenic along the river. Canoes, kayaks and bikes are available to rent close by. Dog walking was slightly restrictive but we had no trouble. This park surely is a classic form of Southern Hospitality and we will definitely return.
We stayed here on our way to southern FL and then again on the return trip home. The sites are level concrete pull-throughs. We were pulling a trailer and had an additional vehicle which were accommodated on our site. The previous postings about air traffic are correct, but we were not bothered by the noise. The flea market across the fence was a great place to walk the dogs. The bar mentioned in a prior post is only open on weekends. We checked it out on a Friday and found the owners and the customers friendly and it made for great people watching. We used to stay in Walterboro,SC at the New Green Acres campground; but this additional 2 hr drive (southbound) is definitely worth it. There is delivery from the Sun Sun chinese restaurant to your site (menus available in office) and we utilized them on both trips. We will definitely stop here again.
We have stayed at this campground numerous times since 2003 and this was the worst visit. Previously we have stayed in sites 3, 5, or 7 which have been level and easy access. This time, we had site 32 which was an easy access site. The major problem was that the site was so unlevel that the front tires on both sides were probably 5 inches off the ground and the front tire on the tag axle on the passenger side was off the ground also. We pulled up so far to try and level that the sewer hose did not reach even with an extension. As usual, Wi-Fi, dog walking, and convenience to I77 were great. We will stay here again only if guaranteed to have a single number site.
We stayed here on our way to Florida. We were escorted to our site which was long enough to accommodate our 42ft, towing a 20ft boat and a jeep. The sites were gravel and fairly level (-2), we were unable to get wifi (-1) from our site #104. When leaving the campground, the tree limbs needed a trim for those of us who have a higher vision level. We would stay here again when traveling through the area.
We stopped here on our way to Florida. The $19 was Passport America rate and was paid in cash (could use a check). The sites were all on grass and parking is alternated so there is some room between campers, but still very close. We were escorted to our site which was good as after dark might have been difficult to find. The site was fairly level. Tengo internet was available and connectivity was good. The dog walk area was great and fairly dog waste free. We would stay here again only if it was not raining.
We stayed here for a week for an Allegro Club Rally. The campground is well laid out with gravel sites and concrete patios. They had just added fresh gravel to the sites so some were a little unlevel but they were leveling sites as needed. I agree with the previous reviewer about the sewer hookups being too high: don't know what they were thinking. Cable TV worked great and Wi-Fi was good most of the time. They have a wonderful dog walk area but you must walk through someone's yard if all of the sites are full which I felt guilty about doing. We would stay here again if in the area.
We used this campground as an overnight stop. It is about 3-4 miles from the interstate, but easy to find. The sites were long enough for our 42' and toad, but extremely close together. The Wi-Fi worked well and so did the cable TV. There was a large dog walking area. We would stop here again when traveling in the vicinity.
We stopped here for an overnight break. The office was empty when we arrived, but a note said to pick a site as all were full hookup. The pull throughs were long enough to accommodate our 42' and toad. There had been excessive rain and we had to dodge some puddles, but our site was fairly level with good amperage and water pressure. The cable TV worked well, but I could not get Wi-Fi in my site. The sign on the door says to pick a spot close to the office for good Wi-Fi reception. The dog walk area was large and drained fairly well. The owners were extremely nice and because of this, we would probably stay here again.
We stopped here overnight while traveling from Texas to Tennessee. The directions said to go 0.2 miles from exit, and we missed the entrance requiring us to travel another mile to find a place to turn around. The entrance says RV Park, but didn't see the actual name anywhere. The entrance is deceiving as it looks like you are turning into a convenience store/gas station. The office staff was pleasant and inquired if we would be leaving at any time during our stay; if so, you needed a gate card which was $20 deposit. The sites were level concrete and were not stacked on top of each other. Dog walking was available by walking on the grass of unused sites. There was dog waste on almost every site. The cable and Wi-Fi worked great. We used our gate card to get breakfast from McDonalds which is just outside of the gate, but when I wanted to return my card at 8:30, there was no one available in the office (opens at 8) so I returned it to the convenience store and then stood in the rain waiting for my husband to exit. There was considerable road noise from I-10 and a nearby train track. We would only stay here as a last resort.
We stayed at Broke Mill for 3 nights while seeing the sites in the Del Rio area. This is a new park which has all of the amenities. I would rate this a 9.5 with the only minus being crushed stone pads instead of concrete. The sites were level, and spacious with enough room for our 42 ft. motorhome and toad. The crushed stone extended so that we had a patio. Dog walking was great as they have a mile + where you can walk your dogs off leash. The Wi-Fi signal was strong and the cable was good. The laundry had 5 washers and dryers with the cost of $1.25. The washers were large and the propane dryers dried well. The laundry room was adjacent to an area with a TV, computer, book exchange and small kitchen area. Next door was a well stocked fitness room with treadmill, elliptical, bow flex, stationary bike, free weights with bench and something else that we didn't use. The restrooms were clean,handicapped accessible as were the showers. We were lucky enough to be there when the owner and his band rehearsed. The large event room complete with stage provided us an evening with excellent free entertainment. Staff also assisted us with finding a great restaurant (Fisherman's) and sightseeing information. This is probably the best thought out and laid out park we have been too. We look forward to staying here again.
I have never rated a park a"10" until I stayed at Buckhorn Lake. We stayed here for a week while visiting the Texas Hill Country. Our site faced a creek (pull in-back out). We had a large concrete pad for the RV and toad and a large concrete patio with a table and chairs. The grass was manicured as if it were a golf green. The dog walking areas were large and I did not see where anyone left "dog business". The Wi-Fi was fast, cable channels and movie availability were wonderful. Although we did not use the fitness area it was available to us. We will stay here again if in the Kerrville area.
We stayed at this campground for 10 days while visiting family in the Houston and Galveston area. The staff was excellent, location was great and we had no complaints. Some of the sites were close, but all had level concrete pads and picnic tables. As usual, some dog owners did not pick up after their pets, but the area was large and easily accessible. The laundry facilities were $2.00 to wash and to dry. The dryers worked well and dried on the first round. We have already booked time in February for a wedding in Galveston. When there, try Skippers (walking distance) for breakfast and Golden Seafood for fresh fish and seafood to fix at home.
Tom Sawyer's is our favorite park when in the Memphis area. The location on the river makes it perfect for relaxing and watching the barges. The Wi-Fi signal had improved since our last visit and the road into the campground looked newly paved. Sites are level pull-throughs and depending on which row, they are concrete or gravel with great satellite reception and ATT phone coverage. Easy dog walking and friendly staff mean that we will return.
This park was an easy access from Rt. 259 and a great stopping point for the night. The sites were fairly level gravel pull-throughs with good electric amperage and water pressure. Some sites had good satellite reception, but we pulled up an additional 5 foot and lost reception. We were able to get all of the network channels with our antenna. We had good ATT cell reception and used the I-phone for internet connection. Previous reports of the herd of exotic deer are correct, but they did not bother us or our dogs. We would definitely use this park again as a stopover and with the Passport America rate of $10, you can't go wrong.
We used this campground as a stopover for one night. The campground is overcrowded with sites being close together and the roads were tight for a 42 ft. motorhome and toad. The cable worked well and the wifi was spotty. Dog walking room was minimal but they had bags and trash cans available for dog waste. Electric and water were fine. Our site was not level and the coach had some difficulty trying to obtain level. When we were finished the steps were rather high off of the ground. The positive aspect was the friendliness of the office staff and all of the campers. We will probably look for another campground if in the area.
We spent 4 nights here will visiting New Orleans. This is the best campground in the area for visiting the French Quarter. The campground will provide a shuttle in the AM and pick you up in the PM. You can also take the bus which will pick you up across the street from the campground or take the trolley. The sites are level, and close together, but do not hamper slides or awnings and there are no side by side hookups. Cable TV and Wi-Fi worked great. There is minimal room for dog walking, but crossing the street and a short walk will let you walk them on the levee. There is some noise from a train several blocks over and the airport, but that did not bother our sleep or stay. There is a lady who provides a dog walking service if you plan on being gone all day and she also makes some wonderful tamales. We will definitely stay here again if in New Orleans.
We spent 2 nights here and were pleasantly surprised. Our site was an extra long pull-through which was level and easily accommodated our 42 footer and toad. Cable TV and WiFi worked well and were included in the charge. The swimming pool was never crowded and the spa was warm and inviting. There was plenty of room to walk the dogs and also an enclosed dog run. The park is close to Lamberts, the Tanger outlet mall and the beaches. Be sure to get directions to the Pirate's Cove, a small eatery on the water that will welcome you and your dog. We will definitely return when in the area.
This is probably the best park we have stayed in. The sites are level concrete, great electric amperage and water pressure. Cable is $2.50 per day which I felt should be included in the price. Wifi is $4 per day and was even faster than our service at home. The pool and spa area are clean and the temperatures were wonderful. You could not have asked for a better area to walk dogs and they even have a large fenced dog run. The staff was very friendly and professional. The beach is very close as well as Walmart and Publix. We will definitely return to this campground.
This was our first time to stay here. We arrived on Wed. and the park was not crowded, but by Saturday, sites were fairly full. Our site was not level and we had to pull in at an angle where we couldn't use our awning, but that was not a problem. Electrical amperage was good and no problem with water pressure. Dog walking was adequate and for the most part everyone kept their dog on a leash. I would have rated this park higher if they had level sites and Wi-Fi access.
This fee is based on the monthly rate for the park. We had stayed here last year and thought that it would be a great place to stay for January. The swimming pool is not complete and progress is slow. Access to the clubhouse is no longer permitted so gathering with friends on rainy days is limited. It is still a good park with large concrete sites with patios, good water pressure and adequate electric amps. We were surprised to see that our electric bill for the month totaled $134 and that seemed to be a going rate. We would stay here again if passing through, but have made plans to spend the winter months elsewhere.
We stayed at this park in an effort to avoid some of northern Florida's cold weather. The sites were spacious; ours measured 40 feet wide from meter to meter and 100 feet deep. Sites were a crushed shell material with a concrete patio. Electric amperage was steady and water pressure was good. The pool area was clean and they had water aerobics on Mondays and Fridays. There were two sets of laundry and shower facilities depending on the area of the park you were in. The office staff were very nice. Wi-fi was strong at the clubhouse and they are going to install so that you can access from your site (I actually saw the equipment). Dog walking areas were abundant. We didn't use the golf course, but rates seemed reasonable. There is a boat ramp for those who want to fish. We plan to spend January and February 2010 here. My only reason for a 9 was due to the shell sites and no cable.
We stopped here for the night on our way to FL based on other reviews. The roads are narrow and our 42 ft. coach with TOAD made all of the turns. We did have to ask a fellow camper to move his truck so that we could leave. Sites are large, electric amperage was on the low side of our meter, water pressure was good. The cable worked great, but I could not get the Wi-Fi to work consistently. Some road noise from I-95 but not enough to bother us. Great room to walk the dogs, but some campers were not considerate picking up after their pets. This campground would be a 10 with wider roads and good Wi-Fi. My husband says that we will not return due to the roads.
We stayed here for one night while traveling north on I-81. We needed a long pull-thru and this campground offered this. The sites were gravel, ours was fairly level, but others were not. Our site had a nice patio with outdoor fireplace, but if not using the entire pull-thru, there would have been a back to back site. The road in was narrow for our 42 ft. coach, but we were able to negotiate. The two positive aspects were the excellent Wi-Fi and the dog park. We would use this campground again if an extra long pull-thru is needed.
We spent 2 weeks here in April and have made reservations for the month of January 2009. The resort is still under construction, but that in no way takes away from the ambiance. The pull-thru sites are extra long and you are semi-secluded from your neighbor. The back in sites are long and large, all have level concrete and patio sections. You can ride a bike from the gated area to town or walk to the local grocery. This facility has the best laundry area of any campground. There is plenty of room to walk the dogs and it looked like everyone cleaned up after their pets. The construction is detailed on their website, so check it out for yourself. We are returning again.
We stayed here for 2 weeks while fishing Lake Guntersville. This park is convenient to Huntsville, Scottsboro and Guntersville and is only 90 miles from the Talladega Speedway. The swimming pool was waiting for inspection but while there, enjoy Thursday night eating at the Depot, Tuesday night Bingo and cards on Friday. Dawn and Kevin the owners are great to do business with and we now consider them our new friends. The sites are gravel and level with good water pressure and stable electric. The Wi-Fi was sometimes difficult, but you could always walk to the pavilion or up next to the office for a speedy connect. For those who don't mind recycling, they separate cans, and plastic and paper and then garbage. There is a lot of room to walk the dogs. We are looking forward to our next stay at this campground.
We stopped here overnight on a trip to Florida. Our spot in row D was a long pull-thru which accommodated our 42 ft. coach, jeep, and 20 ft. bass boat. Our site was level and grass. There had been a storm come through for two nights prior, and there was some mud and puddles which was to be expected. Wi-fi was strong at our site. The dog park was a pleasant treat for our 3 dogs. The staff was friendly and recommended a restaurant in town for supper. You can not beat this park for convenience to I-95 and for fueling at the same exit.
This KOA is great to use for an overnight stay while traveling I-77. The sites are narrow, grass to gravel, but level. They offer free Wi-Fi, but connectivity was somewhat intermittent. There is a nice area for dog walking, but waste scooping is not enforced, so you must be careful while walking your pet. The higher rating for this park is mainly for convenience to the interstate and the easy fuel up at exit 42.
This is one of the best KOA's where we have stayed. The sites were large and ours was a pull-thru with free Wi-Fi, and cable. The registration office was closed when we arrived, but having made reservations online there was a map with our name and site number waiting. It is very convenient to I-65 and there are many restaurants and gas stations close by. The area for walking dogs was adequate, many activities including pay fishing lake and paddle boats. The campground was far from busy, so during peak season, it might seem somewhat crowded, but not if you were in one of the 85 ft. pull thru sites.
This campground is close to the interstate, and this was the second time we stayed here. The sites need some leveling, and are gravel or grass. There is plenty of room for the dogs to walk, and a small lake with bluegill. We will stay here again without hesitation.
This campground is very convenient to the Opryland Complex and travel to downtown is easy. The sites are adequate and they have almost all pull-thru sites. Some sites come with outdoor fireplaces and patio furniture. They have two dog parks which are great to let your dogs run and play.
We have stayed at the Shady Rest many times over the past 3 years. It is a great stop on Interstate 64 in WV. The location is 1.5 miles from the Interstate and the road is narrow, but easy to navigate. When you arrive at the campground, the owners are hospitable and make you feel at home. We have never noticed road noise, only birds singing and the occasional owl. This is a great place to stay if enjoying the New River Gorge for rafting, fishing, or Bridge Day. There is ample room to walk the dogs.
This is a fairly new campground with large open sites. It is easily accessible to shopping and the highways. A large clean laundry room with 4 washers and dryers was not busy. The bath house had many showers which were immaculate. There was a lot of room to walk the dogs.
This is a small family owned park. The sites are adequate, but we had to do some maneuvering to get out of our site. Wi-fi is free, but you must be in sites close to the antenna to have a "good" connection. The owners were friendly and there was good room to walk the dogs.
This was a very nice campground with many different types of sites available. There is a boat launch and parking available for your boat and trailer. An indoor and outdoor pool are available and there are outdoor tennis courts, a gameroom and work out center. Plenty of space for pets to walk and run.
Crawfords is a great place to stay for a week while fishing Lake Guntersville. They are small, but have room for your boat and RV. There is not alot of walking space if you have pets to walk. It is convenient to all local eateries.
