Only stayed 1 night but wish we could of stayed longer. Park is only a couple of miles north of I-10 and easy to find. Check in was easy, they have a huge TV on the wall with a map of the park on the screen that shows you what sites are available and which are not and then you pick the site you want, pretty cool. The big trailer loop are all pull through sites, inside and outside sites with a large grassy area in the middle. Our site was fairly level, 30 amp was good, voltage on both legs was 120 and steady, water pressure was good, sewer hookup was standard threaded PVC. Each site has a huge yard with picnic table and fire pit. There are several TV stations available over the air, Verizon signal was good. Lots of hiking trails, there's a golf course right there plus lot's of historical stuff as well. Yes, we will be back.

I was pleasantly surprised by this park; we had planned on an overnight but ended up staying a week. It's kind of off the beaten path but not hard to find. Check in was quick; lady in the office was sick as a dog, so I got out of there pronto. Office is very small as well. Interior roads are paved and in fair shape; sites are concrete and level, well spaced and mostly back in, but then road is wide so no problem. Voltage was right on the money and water pressure was good; sewer hook up requires a donut and was a pain; most folks didn't bother with the donut. There are trash cans spread out about every other site with bags in them and are checked often. Casino is a stone's throw away, but nobody comes to the RV park that doesn't belong. There is a shuttle from the casino that cruises through about every 15 or 20 minutes if you don't want to walk. The walk is about 10 minutes. Plenty of good walking area for the doggies as well. Walmart and other shopping very close by. We would stay here again.

Most RV parks connected to a motel are not always the best but this park is the exception. Located about 3 miles south of I-10 it's easy to find. Check-in is in the motel office and was quick, they give you lots of local info to go through as well. Interior roads are paved and wide, sites are concrete, there are pull-throughs and back-ins as well, our's was a large pull-through that was level, 50 amp was good, water pressure was good, spacing between sites was very good, lot's of grass for the doggies as well,cable and Wi-Fi were good, Verizon signal was good as well. Staff will pick up propane bottles for fill up which was nice, fully stocked fishing pond with no license needed. Quite a few long term campers but no eyesores, place is well kept and very neat. We will stay here again.

We really like this camp ground. We've stayed here twice and spent about a week here each time and the next time we're in Florida we'll come back. The park is located right off the main highway in Destin (across from Walmart) but road noise is minimum, at night the sound of the ocean is louder than the traffic. There is a lot of military helicopters flying around but that doesn't bother us. Check in was quick and the office folks are very nice. Interior roads are wide and paved, sites are both pull through and back in and all of them are isolated from each other by space and landscaping. Our site was a long pull through but was curved enough that getting our 40 ft 5th wheel in and unhooked was a chore, next time I'll get a back in. The site was fairly level, voltage was good, water pressure good. Verizon signal was very strong, got about 10 TV channels over the air. Site had a picnic table and a close line kind of thing. The beach is about 2 or 3 minutes drive, white sand and blue water, beautiful! We'll be back!

Wonderful state park, they call this the "real" Florida and I believe it, beautiful scenery in an old south setting. Check in was fairly quick, interior roads are paved, site pads are gravel/dirt which are no problem unless it rains which it did. Had to do some work to level the trailer, 30 amp was good, water pressure was ok. Verizon signal is strong, over the air TV signal was fair, about 5 channels. Sites are very well spaced out, lots of privacy. Lots of on site stuff to check out. Very nice park. We'll be back!

Very nice, clean well maintained park, the landscaping is awesome. Each site is owned privately as has been said in many of the reviews so there are no bad sites in the entire resort, we got a waterfront site which is amazing. site is level, all utilities work fine. Interior roads are kind of narrow but not bad. Gotta put down a $20 deposit for your entry card and you have to hook up some type of cable descrambler to watch TV,3 nice pools and a restaurant on site, right outside the front gate is a very tasty Cuban restaurant, I highly recommend it. We would stay here again.

Where to start, First off I paid for an ocean view, premium site and I would of had to get on the roof of the camper to see the water instead we stared at a wall of mangrove trees out of the back and a bunch of stored campers in front, of course they were full and we could not move. Don't get me wrong, they do have some out of this world views in many spots and they paid the same price I did. There is no sewer in the park and the people who left from our spot before we arrived felt compelled to dump gray water before they left and since the sites are all grass it made somewhat of a mess. They do have a honey wagon that drives around pumping poo all day for $10 a pump. Lots of very old trailers and motor homes but lots of high end stuff as well. Site was not level, blocks are a must, levelers will just sink in the ground. Had low voltage on 1 leg of the 50 amp, leg 1 was 124 volts, leg 2 was 106. Told the ladies at the office and they said they would look at it, didn't happen so we left 4 days early with no refund. Not going back.

We had reserved a water front site, which was awesome, the sunsets were amazing, only problem is they don't tell you the utilities are on the wrong side of the site for a fifth wheel backing in. They are for Motor homes to pull in, no worries, I carry plenty of extensions but wish I'd been told. Office folks are very friendly and helpful. was led to our site and offered to help set up. everything is white gravel, sites are separated by a hedge of some sort, hibiscus maybe, they are just a little too close for my liking but not bad, not level either but not bad. utilities were fine except on the wrong side, kind of strange having a sewer hose run across your front patio. Pool was awesome, nice laundry, nice exercise room, huge boat dock and launching area, lots of Manatee's in the area. we will stay here again.

Stayed a week over the Christmas holidays and what can you say it's Disney. First of all check in was interesting since you stay in your vehicle the entire time kind of like a toll both, the process took a little while but everything is taken care of at that point including all park tickets, show reservations, dinner reservations, golf cart reservations, the whole 9 yards and it's at this point were our visit went way off tract. We had made some last minute changes in ticket package and it got totally screwed up. First we were given a spot in a pop up loop, we have a 40 ft fifth wheel, we like of never got out of there, drove back up the registration booth and of course the person we had talked to was now off duty, apparently these people don't have access to the "whole" story because the new dude in the too small cowboy hat said he could upgrade me to a premium spot for a mere $800 bucks more, I had already paid over $1600 dollars for this vacation 7 months earlier so you can understand my hesitation to pay, anyway it all got worked out and they even camped us about $100 in the end. As far as the park goes, interior roads are asphalt and tight all are back in and can be a challenge, electricity is at the back of the site and water and sewer at the front, no wifi which is a shame for the price, site was level with a good separation between sites. Be sure to reserve a golf cart, especially on the weekend, they will run out of them. There's tons of stuff to do right there at the campground, 3 pools, tennis courts play grounds bike rentals restaurants and bars. We will be back but it'll be awhile.

Not a bad stop over for the night, our site was not very level, utilities worked ok, staff was friendly, lots of dog walking room. Quite a few long term folks but park was clean and well maintained. Would stay here again.

Spent a week at this park visiting family in the area. Stayed in one of the large super sites which was very nice. Check in was quick, office staff were friendly, interior roads are gravel, site was asphalt and level. All utilities worked ok. Park is well maintained but starting to look a little old. Fuel, shopping and dining are all near by. This was our second time to stay here and we'll be back.

Only stayed 1 night here but wished we could've stayed longer, beautiful Corp of Engineers park. We had preregistered so we just drove straight to our site when we arrived, they had a little red reserved tag clipped to the post by our site. The park is clean and well maintained, asphalt roads and sites, huge amount of space between sites, all utilities worked well, we had a 100ft pull through with an awesome view of the lake. I guess the only negative for me was I had to go about 10 miles into Montgomery to get fuel, food or groceries would have been even further but most folks who use this park will not be concerned with this issue. Would definitely stay here again.

Everything about this park says a 9 or 10 rating, the place is well maintained, landscaping was very nice. Check in was quick and office folks very friendly, interior roads were fairly wide asphalt, sites are concrete, utilities worked fine, pool looked very inviting. The problem was our site would not accommodate our 40 ft fifth wheel and our tow vehicle, the back of the trailer was barely out of the road on one side and the nose barely out on the other, there is a kind of wide spot on the back of the site that's used for parking the tow vehicle but once the slides are out it was not near wide enough without parking in the grass. There was an empty site next to us so I called the office and asked if I could park there and was told no, I would have to park in the overflow lot at the back of the property leaving us without transportation which was unacceptable, long story short they allowed me to park in the empty space along with another truck who arrived after us, the folks with large class A's had to park their towed vehicles pretty much in the street. Other than that, it was awesome. Wont be back though.

Not a bad stop over for the night although a bit pricey. Check in was quick, staff very friendly. We got a long pull through which was fairly level asphalt, good spacing between sites, utilities worked good. Lots of shaded spots, lots of noise from the interstate as well, 18 wheelers exiting the freeway using their jake brake was pretty bad. We will stay here again.

We used this park for an overnight stay and it was a little bit out of the way in a questionable neighborhood. There was tons of security so not a problem, the park is north of I-10 about 3 miles. Check in was quick, interior roads are paved and wide, sites are concrete and level, utilities were all fine. Place is full of workers, very few transient spots available so call ahead, I made reservations 5 months in advance. Place is well lit, fair amount of space between sites, decent landscaping, nice pool, exercise room and such. Park is fairly new. Probably will not stay here again.

This is a lovely park, we stayed here overnight on our way across Texas. The setting is very, very nice inside a working pecan orchard with deer milling about. The check in process was quick, the desk lady was very cheerful. We were given a back in site but was no trouble to do so. Site was a concrete pad and level, 50 amp was good as well as water, sewer hook up was in the middle. We didn't get to check out all the stuff they offered but we will come back.

This park is by far the best one in the area. I had to make several changes to our reservations prior to arrival and they did so cheerfully. Check in was quick even though they were training a new person in the office. Site was manicured crushed granite with concrete patio and very nice landscaping, all utilities worked great, lots of space between each site. I had some problem with the direct TV setup but they came down and worked over an hour to get it set up correctly, turned out to be a bad receiver. The mountain views are awesome, everything was clean and well maintained. We stayed here 7 nights and were not ready to leave, we will return.

I made this reservation without checking the reviews of the park and that was a mistake, I should of known when there was nothing available at the other 2 KOA's in the area, but this one had plenty of spots. Anyway, the main issue is the smell from the cattle feed lot. Other than that and the 30 or so full time residents and old run down campers and the old junky cars speeding around the park it was fine. The site we were in was concrete and very level, utilities worked good, WI-FI was ok, cable TV was good, the staff was as nice as they could be, the store was stocked very well. I wonder which one was there first, the camp ground or the feed lot, surely no one would build a campground that close to a feed lot (1/8) mile. Final word is, if you must stay here, check the wind direction, if it's out of the NE, go somewhere else, we cut our stay short by one day just to get the heck out of here and lost the money for that day and I don't care, they can keep the rain check because we will not be back.

I've always wanted to stay in this park and now that I have I probably won't be back for the convenience of being centrally located in a massive National Park, I'm not sure the trade off in amenities was worth it. Yes, I know it's Yellowstone and we love this place, but we also love the camping experience as well. Check in was fairly quick, lots of folks in line and all of them asking the same questions over and over again. We pull a 40ft fifth wheel and getting around to our spot was no problem, but backing in was a huge problem. First you have to get the neighbors to move their vehicles and then back in without hitting the wood posts that are stuck everywhere (saw 3 campers damaged by these post) or hit the pine forest that is very close to the road. Utilities worked good, the sewer drain is in a raised concrete box about a foot off the ground, saw lots of creative ways to get that to work. Campers are crammed in here like I've never seen before, but we left in the morning and came back in the evening like everyone else, so I guess it was ok, but no table, no fire ring, just not my cup of tea. We will not be staying here again. Another campground is not that far away.

I don't think I've ever rated a park a 10 before, that's even without a swimming pool. This an amazing, beautiful place, I'm fairly certain there are no bad sites in the entire park. The park is easy to locate and easy to get to. Check in was quick and easy, office staff were very nice and proficient. We had a premium pull through that was level, all utilities worked well, Wi-Fi worked well and the cable channels were fine. The grass at each site is thick and just amazing, sites are spaced out very well, all the streets are wide and no problem for big rigs to get around. We checked out the showers and laundry and they were spotless. Stayed here 9 days and wish it could have been more. We'll most surely be back.

I really liked this park, we stopped over for the night on the way to Yellowstone. It's quite expensive for what you get, but oh well. Park is located just east of town, roads are gravel but each site has a grass patch. Check in was good, office folks friendly. Our spot was a large pull through with concrete patio with metal furniture under a huge cotton wood tree, very nice. Utilities worked good, Wi-Fi was good, cable was good. They have a very nice pool and hot tub area with life size chess board and pieces, jump pillow and a huge play ground. Free pancakes every morning and free bus ride to Cody rodeo every night. We will stay here again.

This is a fairly typical KOA, not bad at all. We stayed here 2 nights. Lots of one night stop overs, place was full every evening and cleared out in the morning. Office people were nice and friendly, check in was fast, they also have a fairly large store. The park roads are gravel and it is very dusty, our site was a pull through and was fairly level side to side, no blocks needed. The water hook up for our site was below ground level in a box, not all were like this, WI-FI was weak used Verizon hot spot, signal was strong. Pool looked very nice. Quite a few long term folks there, some run down campers in sight. We would stay here again.

As far I'm concerned, you could not ask for a more lovely setting, the area is just beautiful. We stayed for 4 nights and loved every minute of it. Check in was quick and easy. The sites are mostly back in with a few pull throughs, they all have a lot of space between the sites, our site was a premium back in site, had to do a good bit of side to side leveling but not too bad, the pads are gravel with a huge amount of grass for your front yard, very nice. The west end of the camp ground is set in an aspen grove. Utilities were good but are located at the very back of the site so you will need extensions on sewer hose and maybe water hose as well. No cable TV, was able to pick up 4 channels from the air. The Wifi was not the best but not too bad. Plenty of dog walking room as well. Fire pits at each site with wood for sale at the office. Just an awesome campground. Will be back.

I personally thought this camp ground was ok. We stayed one night on the way to South Dakota and it was an excellent overnight stop. The Wyoming State Fair was in progress at the time and the camp was very full, lots of horses in the pens. Check in was quick and easy, office lady was very nice, site was gravel and fairly level side to side, utilities worked good, had to pay $2 per night for cable which was strange, did not use wifi. Atmosphere around the area was good, park is located just outside of town, you can hear the noise off the interstate but that doesn't bother me at all. Didn't use the rest rooms, showers or laundry so cannot comment. would not hesitate to stay here again.

We stopped here for the night on the way to Estes Park. The park is very full, lots of summer folks. Check in was good. Office person was ok. We were led to our site. Site was long pull through. We stayed hooked up. It was level gravel, had a pretty good size lawn and table plus fire ring, spacing between these sites was very good. Utilities worked good, WI-FI was Tengonet, but actually worked ok. Verizon signal was weak. Cable TV channels were very clear. All in all, a very nice park with amazing mountain views. We would stay here again.

Park is in a very nice location. The sites on the river were awesome but expensive and very close together. Our neighbors sewer was very close to our picnic table. They charge $5.00 per pet that you bring and I don't know why, there is no place for them to go. The check in process was very good. The office staff are cheerful and friendly. Our site was fairly level and all utilities worked fine. WI-FI was weak, but Verizon signal was good. About half of the TV channels were fuzzy, but the view and location were out of this world and we will come back.

This is a nice little campground. We stopped over here on our way to Colorado. Easy on and off the interstate but noise was not too bad. A train came by once in a while but it was off in the distance. Check-in was a breeze; the young lady at the desk was very pleasant. We were led to our site and offered help getting set up. Site was a long gravel pull-through that was level side to side. 50 amp power was good, water pressure was very good, Wi-Fi and cable both were fine. Each site has a small patch of artificial turf and a table. There were a few trees but not many. The gravel is raked and manicured daily. One down side to this park is that they are not very dog friendly--lots of rules and restrictions, There are two fenced in dog walk/park but both are dirt so there is really nowhere for them to go except on the fake grass. Lots of long term folks here but most campers looked OK. We felt completely safe here. We would not hesitate to stay here again.

This is a hard park to get in to, reservations need to be made well in advance to be assured a site as it is full of summer Texans. They have a few spots that open up from time to time, but not many. The park itself is fantastic, the owners are a wonderful couple, are very friendly and do a very good job of operating the camp ground. After check in you are escorted to your site and the owner helps you get backed in. The sites are gravel and reasonably level, the back in site we had, had the utilities on the wrong side but no big deal, the sites are spaced pretty well at least for this part of the world, had full utilities that worked fine, WIFI is strong, had a bunch of cable channels that were very clear. There are 2 sections to the park, the lower section close to the office and pool has less shade and the upper section, where we stayed, is in the pine trees and is very shady, we love it. Plenty of Doggie walking room as well. Some sites come with a wood deck. All have at least a picnic table and grill. There are activities most every evening at the pavilion if you are the social type. We will stay here again.

We stopped in here on our way to Ruidoso NM and it's pretty much like I remembered it, dry and desolate. I really wonder why the state keeps this park open, we arrived on Saturday afternoon and there were 2 other campers in the entire park. I guess the lake being so low is keeping people away. Anyway, the site we got did have a fairly large tree on it, the staff said it was the most popular site. The sites are spread way out, ours was a pull through (#49) and fairly level side to side. Electric and water were fine. We scoped out the bathrooms and showers: they were spotless as usual. Park is very quiet. Not bad for a stopover, but it's about 6 or 7 miles off of I-20. We'll probably stay here again.

Stayed overnight here while we were getting some work done at Camping World. The park is right off I-35. This is a fairly large camp ground, divided into three sections: RV section on each end and a park model / trailer house section in the middle. Check in was very fast, and the Lady at the counter was very nice. Sites are gravel and spaced fairly far apart. Ours was a pull through with a grassy area on the back side. Site was not very level, but all utilities worked fine. Wifi worked very well as well. Had a large fenced in doggy run plus plenty of room to walk. Freeway noise was minimal; could hear a train as well. Lots of permanent campers, but most rigs looked fine. Didn't use the rest rooms or showers, but the pool area was nice.

We used to come here yearly when our kids were at home but haven't been here in several years. Lots of good memories. Anyway, the park is pretty much as we remember. The full hook ups are on the hill over looking the lake (which is very low right now). The sites are not very level but are plenty big. We stayed in # 75, which has a large oak tree and the living side of the trailer faces a beautiful meadow of wild flowers. All utilities worked fine. They have awesome boat ramp facilities but with the lake so low only one ramp was open. Restrooms are fine and clean. The office staff was awesome, very friendly folks. We would definitely come back.

We really like this park and have stayed here several times in the past and this last stay was no exception. The check in procedure was quick and easy; the gentleman checking us in was very friendly. We were led to our site even though I knew how to get there. Our site was H4 and it is a wonderful site, plenty big enough for our 40 ft fifth-wheel and tons of space between you and your closest neighbor. Lots and lots of shade or not depending what you require. Wi-Fi worked very well. Plenty of places to walk the doggies plus a fenced dogie play ground. We did not use the rest rooms, showers or laundry so cannot comment on them, the pool was not filled but it was still a bit early. One of the best traits of this park is the enforcement of park rules, there was a motorcycle rally in town and lots of bikers in the park but quite time was quite time and that was it. Some people say there is a new RV park in Fredericksburg that is better but we'll be coming back here.

We love coming to this park, we've been here the last two years and plan on coming back, just not during spring break. We've stayed in the pull throughs looking out over the bay and causeway and the view is simply amazing. These sites are not too crowded at least as far as KOA's are concerned, gravel and fairly level, Wi-Fi worked pretty good as well. Staff goes out of the way to make sure everything is perfect. It's expensive but it's South Padre Island and it's worth it.

We stayed here in February and it was cold and windy for most of the week so we didn't get much beach time, our site was right on the beach but with a fence between the beach and our site, the sound of the surf was amazing while sitting in your camp. Sites were concrete and fairly level, fairly well spaced from your neighbor, utilities were good, Wi-Fi was strong. Didn't use the restrooms or showers but the laundry area was very nice.

We really enjoy coming to this park. Our daughter is a student at San Angelo State University and this is by far the best place to stay in San Angelo. Reservations are highly recommended in the summer since the park will be full every weekend. We stayed in site 78, it was very long and wide, nice grass for the doggies and fairly level. Our view looked out over the lake, very nice. The Wi-Fi did not work for me but the AT&T signal was strong so we used our hot spot. Did not use the restrooms or showers so couldn't say about them. There were also a lot of long term campers this time, more than I remember but due to the oil field boom in the area it's to be expected. Staff was friendly and courteous.
