If you are looking for a nice quiet place to spend a few days and relax, El Rancho Lobo is a great choice. We had no cell phones, the Wi-Fi worked just fine and the road that takes you in there is also free range for cattle so we had to pass by a small herd to get to the gate that kept the critters outside. I had to get out and manually open the gate. Our rate was the Passport America rate, which does not include electric charges. The lady who logged us in and out met us outside to read the electric meter and collect the fees for spending the night. An odd place by today's standards but we would definitely stay there again.
We have stayed in Beaumont several times and have never been disappointed. This time we decided to try one of the other parks and again, we were not disappointed. The same train that can cause trouble for RVers along the I-10 corridor is present here as well. The only thing lacked in this park is a swimming pool. Otherwise, the park is a nice one. We would definitely came here again.
This park was a KOA. We stayed in it when it was a KOA. The folks that manage it were there then and are there now. They are doing the same excellent job now as they did before. Everything worked, Wi-Fi and all utilities. They gave us a space and an alternative. Either one would have worked. We will definitely camp here again.
Rate reflects s Passport America discount. We thoroughly enjoyed the restful time we spent at this park. The Wi-Fi and all utilities worked just fine. We not only had their Wi-Fi but were able to connect through the Day's Inn down the street. We will camp here again.
This park is excellent. A small city with too many features to mention here. The only part of our stay that was not good was the WiFi. Lacking enough bandwidth, I can imagine what it would have been like had the park been full of visitors which it was not. The Dog park was a little difficult to find but once we did, I enjoyed taking Junior down there to do his business twice a day. The park employees did their best to fix a bad situation with the WiFi. We were parked just outside of their Hot Spot. Our neighbors went into the hot spot to see if they were able to obtain a better signal. The hot spot connectivity was the same as the connection was from their trailer. We were glad that TV was good as we were keeping an eye on the local weather.
We were placed in the new section where 25 new spots have been added. The Park manager was extreemly nice. She had a major workload with a flood in town that deposited a lot of mud throughout the park. The mess did not occur where we were. The utilities worked fine as did the WiFi. We used this stop as an overnighter but would stay here again.
Be careful where they put you. Your rig may barely fit if it fits at all. Other than that, this is the so-so. The ocean is reclaiming it's own. No more sites next to ocean with hookups. They lost several feet in the last storm. To be fair with the ratings, the campground has far too many campers for it's now downsized capacity. And it's going to get worse.
This park was as advertised. New and excellent! I don't think I have ever been checked in so quickly and easily. We were in our site quickly, set up and all things worked as advertised. This is a big park with plenty of room for all. I don't know what the attraction is about Salem as I noticed that all of the campgrounds had excellent ratings. We called for a reservation and even that wasn't necessary. We only spent one night but if the needs comes, we'll be back here again.
This was one of the nicest parks we've ever stayed in. Landscaping was fantastic. They had tipis set up for those who wanted to use them at $50-60 a night (no utilities) The only reason I did not give this park 100% was the WiFi which sadly was like too many. Yes we have WiFi but you can't use it during high periods of use. The bandwidth just isn't there. That would not be such a major concern but we had no cell phone service (T-Mobile) so we were cut off and I really needed the internet before we left to check on the Northern California fires before we left. The morning we left, the net was down. I could connect to their router but the router was not connected to the internet. As it was, we ran into a major fire off Highway 101 in California but we did manage to get through.
This park has too many abandoned trailers and motor homes which make it look trashy. The pool looks clean though we did not use it. We picked a pull-through spot as we were only going to be here one night. The road to the park is a bit of a challenge should you meet another RV on the way in or out. This did not happen to us. The manager did his best to make the best out of a bad situation. If I needed a place to stay I probably would stay here again though I would look for a more modern place to stay. Maybe with Passport America they can generate enough revenue to do some fixing up on this place. The only really bad thing about it is the proximity to I-5. We parked in a ways from the freeway but we could still hear the noise.
The lady at the front desk went to a lot of effort to find us (the last) spot in the campground. We did not have reservations and were lucky we found this place by accident. The park is full with the "No Vacancy" sign at the office, not on the street. The Wi-Fi works fine though in some places we were told it doesn't work and you have to come up to the clubhouse, the "hot spot". We were on our way to Westport, and unsure of a place there so we called and found a spot in town.
Nice park built with a waterpark. If you have children and want some fun, this is the place. The staff was very cooperative and friendly. They gave us a spot on Row C but I could not get into it so I parked in an open B slot and went into the office to report too many vehicles in the C aisle for me to make a turn. They told me to stay where I was and changed the papers. We were only able to stay one night but to tell the truth I would have stayed a week if I had all the kids with me. I would most certainly stay here again. My only real complaint was the internet lacks the necessary bandwidth for all customers. The best time to use the internet is before 6 am or after 2 am. There is no cable TV but antenna TV brings in a fair number of channels.
Our reservation made 3 weeks in advance did not give us much of a site. First site was a back in after being told we had a pull through and they put us next to a couple of Harley Davidson users. We asked for a change and ended up on the first line in the RV Park. My objection to this was that the RV's are set up with the utility side to the user's side. You open your door into the sewer connection of the unit next to you. Very limited parking for guests. We would not stay here again if we could get into one of the parks along the Big Thompson River.
Park is wonderful with ponds and a nice clean atmosphere. Campground security is ample. Wherever you go you are being watched. We were told there were only 8 sites for transients. The rest are all seasonal. We were encouraged to take non-sewer section as an area where the WiFi would be "Better". We opted for the slower WiFi as we needed sewer connections. The WiFi was useless, not just slow. There is no TV. We were able to receive 3 stations on antenna. One was PBS the others religious. The staff is courteous, helpful. We experienced a strong signal on T-Mobile phones. We probably wouldn't stay here again.
Very nice campground. Pool is a wading pool because of NJ Law that they must have a full time lifeguard if it was any larger. Everything worked, sites were of ample size, and close to highway but quiet. The park may be sold and will not be an RV Park anymore. Would not want to see that happen. NJ has few choices up here in the North West area of the state. We would camp here again.
This park is right in the flight path for Jet Fighters that fly out of Langley. The noise is too much. Because of that, I give this park a 4. If not for the aircraft traveling over the park with their afterburners wide open, I would easily give the park a 10. I talked with several campers during our stay who remarked that they would not be back. I would not stay here again. The park itself is a wild party that starts on Thursdays and goes to Sunday. By Monday things quiet down a lot only to start again on Thursday. There is another campground across the street but I can't imagine their park any better than this one regarding the excessive noise.
The Wi-Fi did not work. There were 4 TV stations on antenna. No cell phone signal. The route in was marked well. The way out was an event. We took a wrong turn and ended up in the mountains pulling a 27 foot trailer. Price was according to Passport America rates. Staff was friendly. Probably would not camp here in the future.
A great place to get away from it all. We have T-Mobile and there was no signal anywhere in the area. We found this all the way up to Anderson, S.C. with some signal strength only inside of the small towns along the way. The restrooms, showers and laundry are all new and in good shape. Our stay was very quiet. I took the dog for a walk to the fishing pond. There were some kind of large flying insect but they seemed to be harmless. Would definitely camp here again.
Older park with many permanents. Staff very friendly as are the residents. Made friends instantly. Only complaint was the internet. We were warned (by the host connection) that we can use the net, but sparingly. It is Wi-Fi, but very slow and you are told that if you go past a point where you used up so many bytes, you are knocked offline. That did not happen to us, but it still bothered me since I had no way to access the system to see how much I had used. Reminded me of high speed when it first came out. "Ok, we have high speed and if you don't use it, the system will be faster."
We parked in a waterfront site. I was very pleased with the campground. People were friendly and at this time of year about half full so there was plenty of space. The internet worked well with a 5 meg download speed, 4 megs up. Ample turning space for any size rig. We backed up to the lake and there was a fantastic breeze coming in through the back window. We used this campground to visit the Wild Animal Park which was also very nice. We really enjoyed the stay.
The park was very tight with mostly permanent residents. We were parked close to a construction project where they were building a vacation residence. The folks next to us had 3 dogs. They left them out and walked away. Two chihuahuas were nasty and went after a child who walked through the space. There was a German Shephard that was not friendly. After numerous calls to security, they first left a note on their trailer that they were in violation. A subsequent complaint brought animal control. After rounding up the two yappers, the animal control officer found a name and phone number on a dog tag and called them. They came and were told not to leave their dogs alone and not to leave them outside for the night. Animal control left and they let the dogs outside. Security told me they were leaving in the morning. I asked them and was told they would be there another week. We asked for a refund and was given it. We left. No, I would not go back again.
This is one of the nicest parks I've ever stayed in. They have a hot tub, swimming pool and a rec area. Spaces are concrete pads with grass around all of them. They have a fishing pond, catch and release. The owner was here as well as the hosts, and everyone was extremely friendly. Our rate was the discounted CCUSA rate of $17.50 a day for 4 days. We stayed an extra day and would definitely stop in again.
We've stayed here before but this time was a let down. They put us in a spot that was on such an angle that it took all we had to get the trailer level. Propane is the convenience store method, you pay up front $20 for a 20lb bottle and they fill it. If the bottle isn't empty, they are selling you your own gas. The internet was very different. They now have a "free" version and one of "extra speed" for a fee of $4.95 a day. I took the extra speed version on my computer and my wife stayed with the free version. We ran speed tests through Toast.net and the free version was faster than the higher speed. They spend a lot of time with recreation and we will probably stay here again, but buyer beware.
We were placed in space 46 which was about as far from the office as possible when there were spaces in closer. The internet was useless, too far from the signal. One antenna station on TV. No one in the office at 4:45 pm when we pulled in. Office did not open in the morning. The ground is a fill that was very dirty, muddy. We signed in for 3 nights stay. The following morning it was 33° and began to snow, making the ground a muddy mess. The only good thing was the staff, whoever she was, was very nice and only charged us for the one night since she hadn't run our credit card yet when we told her we were leaving. If this place had a different ground cover, cable TV and an internet with more bandwidth, we might return, but as it is now we probably wouldn't go back.
We had trouble with the Wi-Fi which was TengoNet. We had to call several times over 2 days but the problem was resolved. The free shuttle to the Mormon Temple was great since parking is not easy to find in the area. There is a major construction going on but not impossible to negotiate. The staff was very pleasant and helpful. We would camp there again.
Wi-Fi did not work at the sites. We had to go to the office to go online. They were working on a solution, we talked to the folks who do that work. Putting that aside, we would return for another visit. Nice and close to Bryce Canyon. There were a lot of children, dogs but all were contained and quiet at night.
Typical KOA high charges, but worth it to some people. The site was not level and required extra effort to level the RV. Cable TV snowy but the internet worked well, Tengo net was part of the nightly fee. We were not pleased with the construction vehicles going through the park which is under construction. The pool and office building looks new and is well stocked. We've been here before and might stay here again if Trailer Village in the Grand Canyon park is full again.
Some steep hills to get into the park but not too difficult. Worth the pull with sites up top offering a nice view. Staff nice and helpful. The WiFi worked well. TV was local channels. The only criticism I could offer was the sites need grading. Sewer ports just installed in Concrete but the sites are below the curb making sewer connection difficult if the trailer outlet isn't high off the ground.
The site wasn't level so it took some work to get the rig to set up. Other than that, the park was Ok. The TV and Internet worked and the staff was nice. One reviewer mentioned no sewer. There may have been some sites without sewer but we had all hookups.
We were here 5 days. Staff is excellent, the ambiance is the best. The park is 5.5 miles off the highway which is 3.5 miles from W.Yellowstone but that's a plus. This place is so peaceful. The TV: none without satellite and 3 stations on antenna. The internet worked OK but did go out for an hour or so. If you need a lot of turning space and are concerned with a lot of trees, you might not like this place. That being said, there are 35' to 38' 5th Wheelers here. We are in a pull trailer and I'm going to have to back out of the spot. We picked it as right on the lake. Would definitely stay here again. Many people here for the season.
We cannot say enough about this park. Well setup, internet and cable TV worked fine. Hosts are the very best. We intended to stay one night but we stayed 3 nights which should say a mouthful of praise for this campground. Would not only stay here again but might stay a few days as well. The Winnemucca area is noted for Basque cooking. We went to the Hotel for dinner and it was excellent!
The ambiance in this park is why I have to rate it that high. The Internet always works, the TV stations are such that without cable TV or a satellite dish, there is no TV. The folks who run it are always nice and accommodating when they can. We were given a slot that with our truck parked in front, there was not enough room for us to be out of the lane of traffic. We moved to another slot and the same thing happened. We parked next to the pool. We were here a week to see and enjoy San Francisco. While there are CGs closer to the Embaradero, this one is convenient and we wanted to drive down to coast to Santa Cruz. We've camped here before and we'll do it again, but if I could change somethings, I would.
The night we stayed here the internet was not available. There was something wrong with the Hughes Satellite system: errors came up all night long. We were in space 18 which was just across from the office and the WiFi antenna. The signal from us to the router was good. I have to give this park a high rating because it is a gem in the middle of the desert. We pulled in and never turned on the A/C. There was a nice breeze going through our trailer. Spaces were tight but we managed to back in our 27' trailer and truck that makes us 43' long. Park was quiet, the staff friendly. I would consider staying here a couple of days to relax and renew.
This was a nice place to spend some quiet time, the staff was very nice and accommodating. The internet worked fine. The staff was well versed on the local weather. We were warned to get into our site and hooked up quickly as it was going to rain. We were allowed to hook up and the rains did come. By morning, the skies were blue, there were some puddles but not in our space. We would camp here again.
We stopped here for a one nighter and were not disappointed. The staff was very friendly, the sites themselves were gravel but level. We left our rig connected which is 46 feet long without a problem. I would have liked to try out a canoe on the river and perhaps go for a swim. Water looked clean. The internet worked just fine. We would stay here again. There seems to be some things to do around Junction. This is one of those non-planned stops that need to be planned next time.
This is a large park situated on a stream and they have a pool. We managed to get in here just before a major thunderstorm, so I was hooked up before the rains came. There is cable TV but we found the All Stars game using the antenna so we left it that way. There are many stations you can get with an antenna. The internet and TV came and went but I have to blame that on the storm. When it back up and running, both ran well. We are going to stay here 3 days.
I have to echo the previous sentiments with only one criticism, the internet was insufficient. If I was able to connect it was before 6 am or after 10 pm. Then it was on and off while trying to do something. He has no password on the system and neighbors close enough to take advantage of the generosity. In looking at the numbers, $30/night times 30 sites, times 30 days and 12 months a year, the park has the capability of over $300,000 a year. Granted I don't know what his taxes and expenses are, but if he is not 100% full, it can only be the internet which is becoming a very important asset to a campground. The system needs to be set up to prevent game-playing and using a telephone which will use up the resources and prevent many from using it. I would most certainly camp here again but I would like to see a better internet.
The other remarks on this campground are essentially correct. It's a nice CG; the best thing it has going for it is a wonderful pool. There were a few negatives. A lot of CG's say they have internet but in reality it's a system that belongs at home and not in a CG. Service was spotty. At times I couldn't get anything done as I was disconnected. The bandwidth is very low. I was just across from the office with a very poor signal. The only times I could use it was late at night or very early in the morning when most people were sleeping. The day before we left, I had to go to the clubhouse with my laptop to check the weather. This was the first campground ever that ran my credit card before we arrived. Had we not made it, I would have been charged for the first night anyway, $49. Most CG's won't run the card until you are there. At least I wish I was told what they were going to do before I gave them the CC number. The second complaint was more serious (for me). A long time friend picked us up around 11 am and we went out for the day in his truck. The car pass was in my truck parked at the site. We returned about 4 pm to find a guard at the gate who refused to let my friend go in and drop us off at our campsite. We had to walk to the site from the gate. It was a very long distance for me, being disabled. As I hobbled off with my wife, he snickered. Very upsetting. ON this basis, I would not stay there again. The price was in my opinion a "Jersey" type of price and too high. Good luck at this campground. New Jersey has few campgrounds and all are high priced for what you get. There is a CG just over the state line in NY but the price is incredible considering there are no services. You pay for a parking space. Best to find a Wal-Mart.
The park is nice. Only reason for low rating is their idea of internet service. Very slow, troublesome. We have our own domain but they have port 25 blocked so I can't send mail via my own domain/address. They do this to prevent spammers from using their system to send out spam. AS IF spammers are really driving around in RV's to use campground Wi-Fi systems to send their spam. No, they don't. This is a control issue, overkill. Internet is important these days when checking weather. The TV stations are few, may as well say no internet, no TV. Other than that, the park itself is nice, well kept.
Park was OK, staff was friendly. Only negative thing was the Wi-Fi. So slow that it was almost useless. We were traveling behind a bad storm so keeping an eye on the weather maps was important. We had to rely on TV which was not giving us the information we needed.
This CG was the light at the end of a dark tunnel. We were leaving another CG and called these folks as we reached the main road. We told them we were only a few minutes away. They were closing the office but said they would wait for us and they did. Folks were very helpful and while this park has many tight spaces, we were put into a pull through with plenty of room to pull in and out when leaving. The only downside to this park was the internet. The connection to their router was 4 to 5 bars; the troubles were in their internet provider. We've had troubles with them in the past at other sites. The first night, as the campers gave up on the net, the system enabled us to get our email. We woke up early the following morning and at 5 am, the signal was good until around 8 am. After then, it was so slow it was unusable. We enjoyed our time here and spent 2 days going around Tombstone. Would camp here again.
This was one of those disasters at the end of a long journey. We were assigned a space and was unable to pull our travel trailer into it. Our rig is 45' long, truck and trailer. The staff is accommodating, cordial and gave us another space to pull into. The second space was not level, the electric panel too far from the trailer for a hook up. We would have had to make a choice between the water, sewer and electric. We tried the internet and there was no connection to his router yet we could see the antenna from the space. We asked for a refund, which was granted and to be fair, some of the spaces there looked OK but I wouldn't count on the internet in any RV park in Tombstone. Would not stay there again.
I have to echo the first reviewer on the page that this is a great campground. We stayed for 2 nights to catch up on some chores and see Amistad Lake. Next time we'll be here in warmer weather. The folks that run this place make you feel welcome. I needed some propane and after I was shown to the site, they took my empty and returned it full. The price was very reasonable. I can't say enough about this park and would definitely stay here again.
I gave this CG a "10" and it certainly deserves a high rating. The staff was excellent, though this CG is very busy this time of year. An oasis for warmer temperatures, we left Louisiana with 23° temperatures to here at 50-60°. If I were looking for things to complain about, the entrance is not a large one and if over anxious campers want to block it, they can and do. The only problem we had was with the clientele, some of whom were very rude. The staff did an excellent job of dealing with them. This park has a calendar of things to do, something going on every day including Sunday with a non-denominational church service. The internet worked well, the Cable TV has an ample supply of stations. I would camp here again. 99% of the other campers were very friendly.
One of the nicer parks we've been to. Staff very friendly, guided us into the spacious spot. Our rig is 44 feet long, truck & travel trailer. The internet had several connections. We chose the one with the most bars and it was the slowest Wi-Fi I've ever experienced. We switched to one of the other connections and the net speed picked up to 700 - 800K. Park is clean. We would stay here again, for short or long term.
The park is not the nicest of places but could be in the future. Lots of trees planted but only 3 - 5 feet tall. The park has a lot of fill dirt at the beginning of the property right off the road. The fill is not clean, there is a lot of broken pieces of roadway in it making the park look trashed. The internet was an additional charge though you need to log out as the charge is for 1,440 minutes or one, 24 hr day. If you log out before going to bed, you won't be charged off the time. If you need two computers on, then you need to pay twice the fee. The staff was very friendly. I would stay here again for an overnight but longer than that, probably not until the fill dirt is graded from lumps and the trees mature a bit.
Very small park. Not much room to turn around. No checks or credit cards, cash only is a pain. The WiFi worked very well, best I've seen yet. The staff is courteous yet right on to business. No discounts, a bit pricy.
Price too high for a campground that offers so little. The pool was the only thing going for it yet did not have enough water to let the skimmers get rid of bugs. Customers do that themselves. There was no TV, the internet useless. The owner gave the usual, "there's nothing wrong with it, I use it every day myself." To add to this, our cell phone with zillions of little people running around to keep up the connections, had no service. Overall, I wouldn't stay there again.
Many long term residents with junk piled around their sites but some sites were very well kept, grass tended to, small fences and those folks were nice. Others were not even given to say hello. The owner gave the appearance she wished no one would bother her. The price was a little high considering no TV or Internet service. The park was too far from Sequoia & King Canyon National parks. We had paid for 3 days and left in 2. I was not comfortable in this park and would not go back.
The only thing we had trouble with was the Wi-Fi. In our slot, the internet was not available. We learned something on this visit, to drive through with our laptop on and Wireless Assistant engaged to see if the computer can pick up a good signal. We now ask for the site so we can take the laptop right there and see if it works OK. Other than that, this was a near-perfect 3 days to spend in Vegas. There were many long term residents, people who lived there and worked somewhere in town. The only thing I have to add is that we weren't too far from a number of (at least 50) homeless people waiting for help in front of a shelter. They were living on the streets. Inside the campground you see nothing of this. The owner couldn't do enough for you. They give you a gate opener to get in and out. He was building a restaurant and if we ever visit Las Vegas again, we will most certainly chose the "Hitchin' Post" and see how well he can cook!
This KOA was very overpriced for the services offered. We had electric, water and a dump station. In a smaller rig like ours, the Grey and Black tanks do not last long with 2 people using the rest room and shower on board so we had to dump the next morning. This KOA experienced a bad fire and the building was gone. There were no sewer hookups. To add to this lack of service, they asked for $5 to use the dump station. While we probably wouldn't go back here, they do have an asset; they were miles from the train tracks so the night we spend there was very quiet and peaceful. The hosts were very nice. We took a guided tour by a Native American Navaho guide and the tour was well worth the price. "Milton" Made the trip a big success.
Concrete, level pads were the only asset. We checked in and managed to set up the rig when a train went by. After a lost night of sleep in Grants N.M., I went over to the office to ask if this was a main line. The tracks were right next to the campground. The lady was honest and told me they run all night long, probably the same trains that run through Grants, N.M. I asked for a refund and they did give it to us. We left for the KOA along the road that leads to the Canyon.
The park was maintained and secured by a gate. We weren't too pleased with where they put us, right next to a noisy lift station but we were tired and the noise wasn't noticeable after awhile. This was a great location to see Meteor Crater. We went through the Painted Desert, stayed overnight at the campground and on to the crater in the next morning. All in all, a good visit.
The lady who checked us in was very nice. Surprised at the price, later that night we learned why the price was so low. Right next to the train tracks, the whistle woke us up every 1/2 half hour all night long. The price per month was only $155 and there were some long term folks there. I slept with ear plugs but was still woken up.
I agree with the first review that this is just another overpriced KOA with little to offer at this time of year, April. While we did buy a new KOA card here, the $60 bill for one night at this campground was too high. We could have stayed in a motel for less than that. The campground wasn't all that bad but we probably won't go back there.
