The nicest park I've seen in the valley. Beautiful landscaping and friendly people. Would have rated higher if their Wi-Fi worked. Considering this park is one of the highest priced in the area I would have expected a reliable Wi-Fi connection. Their website states their Wi-Fi "really works." Not so. If they could fix this problem this would be a 10 rated park.
We were essentially staying in a parking lot with very tight back-in sites. We were in the so-called deluxe sites to accommodate larger motor homes. Huh! Thank goodness the sites were empty on each side of us and in front of us or I'm not sure how we would have gotten in. We saw the staff helping everyone get parked. We were unable to reach the sewer connection even though we had an extended hose. Most people had an extension. We are just trying to be conservative with our water usage and we will use the dump station as we leave. We expected we would have free WIFI since we were paying over $100 a night but, no, we had to pay $18.75 for the weekly WIFI rate. On the positive side, the staff was friendly and the park in nicely maintained. The pub was a popular spot next to the pool. We would look to stay somewhere else the next time we are in the Keys.
We coordinated our month stay around the shuttle launch. Overall, we were satisfied with the campground although we dreaded the weekend crowds. We found them rude, vulgar, and disrespectful of others. The weekenders walked through our site constantly and their children rode their bikes right past us as we sat outside our RV. We were grateful the staff enforced quiet hours. The bathrooms were always clean except on the weekends.
Rate is with Good Sam discount. Check-in was simple, and owner very accommodating even without a reservation. Our pull-through site was unlevel but was the best site to get satellite TV. Wi-Fi was mostly reliable. The area was quiet, and convenient to the city, although we were surprised at how dead the city was even with a cruise ship in port. The only difficulty we had was making the turn off Old Military Road. We had traffic on our left so we could not make the tight right turn without the on-coming traffic backing up to enable our turn on to the road to the park.
This older, conveniently located park was neat and clean, with many social activities and a sparkling pool. Office staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. Our major complaint was the extremely tight spots. We had one of their very limited larger pull-thru sites. We felt like sardines and would not extend our stay even though we would have liked to be in the area longer. Would not stay here again unless we had no other choice. WIFI was dependable.
We were satisfied with the campground for our purpose--to see the space shuttle launch. Not sure what was biting but we had many bug bites on our legs so make sure you have good bug repellent. Also, close all your windows. We got a small lizard in our car. WIFI was down about 25% of the time and would not reach to our site. The lady in the office during the day was very moody and was not at all helpful or concerned when she was told their WIFI was down.
This website needs to update their nightly rate field to allow for more than a two figure rate. Including all the Florida taxes we paid $154 per night. We stayed seven nights--would have stayed longer if our budget allowed. This gated, owner resort is small but beautiful. It is near mile marker 14 so it is convenient to Key West. All sites are beautifully landscaped to provide almost complete privacy from your neighbor. We pulled in facing the water, a dock and tiki hut. We felt like we were in paradise. We were cautioned about "the rules" when we checked in. We didn't mind because we appreciate a well-maintained environment. We found most people to be very friendly. Would definitely return--the high cost was worth it to us. WIFI was reliable.
I read the previous reviewers post just a few days before we were set to arrive at this campground. I almost cancelled our reservations. The immediate area was a bit intimidating, but we were careful and agreed not to be out after dark. We found the area east and southeast was the most concerning but you can pass in and out of nicer areas. We were not so concerned that we would say we would never come back again. Inside the park we felt safe although we were warned by some neighbors who come to the park every winter to lock up everything. A few bikes had apparently been stolen and tools had been taken from a pickup truck. The very large security-patrolled campground is arranged in pods with spacious green areas between them. The sites are spacious although the concrete parking pad is very narrow. If you are planning on staying here, just be careful as you should be in any big city.
This is an owner park with a mix of RVs and modular homes. Backing in is a bit tricky depending on the site you get, because of the tight streets and landscaping. We had a spacious, beautifully landscaped spot although not all sites were so large. Most of the people were very friendly. A strip mall with a grocery store is within walking distance and a large beach is within 2 blocks. You get the feel of seclusion even though you are in a populated area. This is a very safe area where people were constantly walking or riding their bikes along the miles of walkway overlooking the beautiful beach below. Our only complaint was the park's WIFI did not reach to our site. We had to go to the office to get service. We will definitely return here if in the area if we can get our same site.
We liked the proximity of the park to all the attractions in the area. We thought the price was high for the tight spots, noise level, $5 daily WIFI fee, and since many amenities were closed for the season. The first night we got NO sleep with the loud freight trains ALL night long. An airport must be nearby because we also experienced some plane noise. We rushed through our tours so we could leave ASAP. The tight spots did pose a problem getting out. We had a heck of a time. We found it easier to back out of our pull-through. We did like the fact that the campground entitled us to play golf at the private Hershey Country Club. We would not stay here again because of the noise level.
We enjoyed our stay although we think they are over-priced even with the fall discount. There are no amenities for $47 a night if you stay during the week beginning in Oct. We had no trouble getting a spot without a reservation but we would bet this place is booming during the summer and weekends. It seems to cater to families. The park grounds are huge and attractive and we did like the way they have sectioned out the RV sites throughout the large area. Garbage pickup is provided at your site. Bathrooms were a little out of the way. We were surprised at the rate charge, and there was an additional cost for WIFI--with a two day commitment from the service provider.
The previous reviews were so low we decided to drive our car over first to check the place. We were staying on South Hero but found the area too far from our points of interest near Burlington. As we drove in we had a negative first impression because of the shady hotel. As we checked out the RV grounds we found mostly seasonal lots--some trashy. We decided since there are so few RV parks around Burlington we would be able to tolerate the place since we would be on the go most of the time. We were allowed to pick our spot. Our first night the seasonal neighbor kept us awake with their loud TV or radio. A previous reviewer was right about snarling dogs. One tried to attack our tiny dog but fortunately the dog was tied up and did not get to our dog. Most people seemed to have very large dogs. FYI - we had to prove up-to-date shots for our dog upon check-in. We were most disappointed with: 1)the WIFI was pathetic. I wish places wouldn't state they have WIFI when it doesn't work. We could never get reliable internet here. We gave up. 2)A major negative for us was the fact that you cannot turn south to leave the park and we had to drive approximately 3 miles up the road to get turned around with our RV--a car can make a u-turn in a shorter distance. Traffic is heavy during rush hour so give yourself plenty of time if venturing out at that time. We would never want to stay here again but if back in the area we probably would because of the convenience to the attractions and relatives. We would consider checking out North Beach again but we found the city traffic too much with a 40ft motorhome. FYI - not sure why a previous reviewer indicated Shelburne Museum was not nearby - it is within a mile or two of the park.
Passport rate quoted-we had a long pull-through site and had no problem using our satellite. We could not open our windows or sit outside during the day because dump trucks and other large commercial vehicles were driving through all day stirring up dust from the gravel roads. Not sure what they are doing but this continued all week. We were in town to visit our son so we did not like that any visitor had to pay $5. The park is in a beautiful area but it is a long drive to Burlington and any sizable grocery options.
The park is conveniently located to all the attractions in North Conway. We (and others) had trouble getting through a few tight turns to our spots. They have too many obstacles. People were temporarily moving fire rings and dodging posts to try to back in. We were not pleased about the $2 per day pet charge especially since we were told dogs were not allowed to be left in RVs and we had to take her with us whenever we left. Some of the staff were extremely friendly--a few were rather short. WIFI was not reliable. We would look for another place if in the area again.
This park is conveniently located near town. We enjoyed the walking paths right next to the park. On site you can rent bicycles, kayaks, etc. Our site was very tight and the interior roads were poorly maintained.
Loved this place! The area scenery does not get any better than this. Even though there were no hook-ups or showers, only modern bathrooms, we would return here in a minute. We wish they would consider a dump station. The roads are asphalt and the sites are spacious and well maintained. We had no trouble with our 40 ft motorhome in the Big Meadow wooded section. Hayes Field is available for those wanting a mountain view in an open field. There are numerous hiking trails around the campground.
This is an extremely neat and clean park that accepts Passport America. The staff was very helpful. We had some RV problems and they helped direct us to a place to buy the screws we needed and then provided us a drill and urged us not to rush. There is a $1 per day WiFi charge which was occasionally sluggish. We were very pleased with our large site. We were amazed with most parks we had been staying at were less than half full where this park had RVs in overflow every day but one. Would recommend this park if you are in the area.
This park is conveniently located to Sussex. We were in town for the balloon fest. We were about 1 mile from the balloon launch site and we could see the balloons take off. Often the balloons went right overhead. Some even landed in the park. We arrived early in the week. Many RVs parked but very few people. By weekend the place was packed. They do have a late quiet time--11 p.m. weeknights and midnight on the weekends. No one was loud around us so not a problem. We found it somewhat difficult to get our large motorhome out with the crowds but would definitely do it again. The park is part of a drive-in theater. On the weekends movies are playing.
We really enjoyed our stay at this Passport America park. There were many seasonal campers but all were very friendly. Our spot backed up to the river (a stream to us) but still very relaxing. The owner was extremely friendly and efficient. There is a charge for WIFI. Our only complaint was the very long single lane, treed entrance street (1/2 mile+). It was difficult to maneuver with a large motorhome.
I would have rated this higher but we had one of the worst two spots in the park. **Never stay in sites 36 or 37.** When we arrived no one was in the site on our street side and it seemed OK although we were a little unhappy that the other neighbors awning almost touched ours when extended. I was really upset when we returned from our sight-seeing--a fifth wheel was moving in next to us. Their slides were within 8 inches (yes 8 inches) of ours. When he set up his water lines, he or his doors hit our coach--no apology though. They were too busy taking pictures of the closeness of our slides (nothing I would want to remember). We woke up in the morning to our coach vibrating from their loud TV. The WIFI was a problem also. Besides being slow, the system was down at one point so I went to the office to verify that it was not my computer. The man was short with me and told me he didn't know if it was down and he would have to go "all the way upstairs" to find out. I walked out telling him I was just making him aware I believed his system was down. About 30 minutes later, the system was working slowly again.
Would have rated the park a 9 if the interior roads were not in such bad condition. We arrived after several days of rain and the red mud was terrible, especially when trying to level on their grassy spots. Our site overlooked the water--the view was amazing. We watched the seals. The personnel were very friendly and helpful. Would recommend the place. Very close to the Nova Scotia ferry.
I gave the park a higher rating based on the wonderful ocean front setting even though our view was of seasonal units. The park is mostly gravel with RVs packed in pretty tight. You must pay $2 per day for WIFI. I suggest you check your signal strength before you pay. We could not get access where we were parked and we were not willing to pay if we had to sit in the office to get access. The quaint town is an easy 1 mile walk to the center of town.
We were not overly excited about this place other than it was close to the area attractions. RV area is nothing but a gravel parking lot for the most part. WIFI was available from RV if parked close to the laundry area. The majority of sites are electricity and water only.
We enjoyed our stay here but wish we could have had an ocean view. A sign at office states 7 day limit but the RVs near the water were there more than 7 days. Sites are first-come and you find your own spot. We couldn't find anything with full service. Most lots are unlevel but not a problem. WIFI is only assessible near the office so you must sit in your car or bench to have service. We were there during blueberry season and you can pick all the blueberries you want. Whatever you do don't disconnect your vehicle at entrance or the office will come out and get after you. Depending on the spot you find there aren't convenient disconnect spots. Would stay here again due to the proximity to Acadia. We used the park transportation--we had to sometimes wait for three buses if we got a late start (10-noon) since we were the last stop in before the park.
We've stayed at a lot nicer places for a lot less. The tree-lined entrance makes a nice first impression but it is all downhill from there. At the end of the entrance is a public beach jammed with people--many, many kids. Our spot was under pine trees with no sewer connection. The 5th wheel next to us was parked at an angle within 4 ft of our coach. The park has at least 50% seasonal campers. The campground is obviously on the flight path of Portland airport. They did have live entertainment Saturday night--set up very near our coach. Quiet hour is not enforced. If you want peace and quiet, don't stay here.
We did not like this park. The interior unpaved roads are terrible and the park was filled with many seasonal residents. We had to stay in the over-flow area and had a heck of a time getting our rig out of there due to the rocks and trees. We had electrical and water problems.
We enjoyed our stay at this small former KOA park--apparently the only RV park in Quincy at this time. The park is old but nicely maintained including a sparkling clean swimming pool. Management was cordial and accommodating. The sites were close together but still room for awnings. There are very limited 50 amp, full hookup sites. Make sure you arrive via Bonansinga Drive if a big rig else you will encounter low hanging tree limbs.
We really enjoy this park. We visit at least once a year to fly fish at the nearby dam. Close enough to Branson without getting stuck in the heavy traffic. Pick up a brochure showing all the roads to by-pass high density areas and you will enjoy your stay a lot more. We enjoy our fall visits more when there are not so many families with small children. We stayed in campground 1 with full hook ups. Some sites are very small so look before reserving to ensure you are happy with the site you get.
Loved this park even though it is rather remote. As mentioned earlier this is an ownership park with the following restrictions: No Vans, Pop-ups, Truck Campers, or Class B Motorhomes. Minimum RV Length of 26'. Most of the RVs are high end motorhomes. The location is actually in Arkansas, southeast of Blue Eye. We were welcomed by the staff and owners. Everyone was very friendly. We had very limited cell coverage and WIFI was sometimes slow -- otherwise a beautifully-groomed park with a fantastic view from all lots. Would return here again.
I absolutely do not understand these high ratings. For such a small park there sure are a lot of ratings, almost all top ratings. I question who is rating this place? We chose this place solely on the ratings and were we extremely disappointed. Our complaints are numerous. 1) They would not honor our Passport America, even though they show no restrictions in the PA book. 2) When we called to inquire, we were told there was only 1 more place left, so we felt pressure to book before we checked this place out. The 1st night they were only 50% filled, the 2nd night approximately 60% full. 3) No one has mentioned in these reviews, there is a 14 kilowatt/hour electrical limit per day. This may be adequate for the dominant pop-ups and trailers here, but not for a motorhome. We used propane for everything, and still went over on electricity. It was charged at 18 cents per kilowatt/hour. 4) We were not told about this charge until we paid and almost set up. Owner came over and read our meter and told us of this limit. 5) The campfire pit for the next site was within 2 1/2 ft of our motorhome. We were worried the entire time, the neighbors would start a fire and damage or burn up our RV. 6) The map of the campground is false. There are no teepees and there are not several bathrooms. 7) There is 1 deplorable unisex bathroom for all the RVs and tents. One morning a man was pacing outside the bathroom desperate for the person taking a shower to vacate. 8) This gravel park is not in Rudioso. It is north of Alto. 9) The owner is not consistent in his pricing. The people next to us (in full hook-up as we were), paid $20 per night. We were charged $25 and remember they would not honor our Passport America. 10) There is an additional $8 charge for the TV hookup. 11) I find it highly unusual there are so many past review comments on this owner. Usually you hear more about the facilities, not the personnel. This owner does have a very strong personality. He is as quick to welcome you, as he is to kick you out if you complain. We wish he would have kicked us out, so we could have gotten out of this place. There are no amenities to this park. We would NEVER return to this place.
We had a great time at his park. We started off in the spacious, mostly open Mesquite campground area located approximately 8 miles from the entrance of the park. The steep grade is easily managed in a large motorhome. Wild turkey were every where and the canyon walls are beautiful in this area. Our only complaint was there was very little grass only red clay which can easily track into your RV. This campground is in a flood prone area so we had to move to a different campground as severe weather hit the area. We chose the Sagebrush area over the Mesquite section. The Mesquite area seemed too tight and not as spacious although the highly treed area was tempting. We liked the Sagebrush perimeter grassy sites the most. Although we didn't get to use them because of the storms, the partially covered picnic areas were very secluded. If we are in this area again, we would most definitely return. There is great hiking and awesome views.
The parking lot camping served our purpose--a place to stay while in the park. There are no hookups or showers. Very few sites for a large RV and no reservations are accepted. Our site was wide enough for our toad. Sites at the entrance were narrower but longer. There is a lot of traffic in the area all day and into the evening as a major trail head is in the RV park. All traffic is one-way so every car will go past your RV. Try to find a site near the entrance to the RV park and away from the restrooms and trail head or you deal with hikers ALL the time.
This is our second most favorite park in the valley. We liked being outside the birding state park. The area around is developing with new homes and an owner-based park next door. We were lucky to get in for a few nights since most reservations are made a year in advance. The man we first talked to was short and told us they had no openings. I called back minutes later telling the lady we really wanted to visit their place for at least a few nights to see how we liked it. She was very accommodating and got us in. The only complaint we had was the tight roads. It is difficult to back into some of the sites if you have a large RV. We saw several people have problems. Otherwise, a great place to stay with many amenities and nice landscaping.
Loved this park. We booked for 2 nights and ended up rebooking for 6 nights. Deer and birds were everywhere. The mountain views are spectacular. Only problem we had was the distance of our cable connection. We had to borrow additional cable from the park host since our 25 ft cable was not enough. Apparently, this is a common problem since some cable connections are on the opposite side of all other connections. Close to McDonald Observatory. Make sure you have the majority of your groceries since there is not much to choose from in Ft. Davis.
This park is way overpriced for a gravel parking lot and WIFI for a fee. The minimal grassed sites are decent size but the brick and concrete picnic tables are oddly placed. The table for the site to our left was right up against where our front driver slide was. Not sure who would ever use them. The staff was very friendly but not enough reasons for us to ever stay here again.
I do not understand the 10 ratings on this park. Granted it seems there are no good campgrounds around Big Bend but this place was a gravel parking lot. There are only two 50 amp service sites and this side of the park (feet from the remote road) are very close together and difficult to get in or out of. The staff are very friendly but we would never stay here again. This park is not even near Alpine. Actually closer to Marathon. About 9 miles from the east entrance to Big Bend.
Monthly rate quoted--rates change by month and section of the park. We stayed in the new north section. The sites are so beautiful, meticulous, and spacious with small palm trees and fruit trees. Their are grapefruit and orange trees around the park which you are invited to pick from. Everyone was so friendly. This is the best place we have ever stayed with many amenities. We were handed a "Resident Handbook" upon arrival. The rules promote a positive experience for all. We would definitely stay here again if in the area. Only complaint would be one office person had a bit of an attitude.
Rate for Passport members. Fig Tree was a great find in the midst of all the big parks around that were charging much more plus a $3 resort fee when it was too cool and rainy to do much of anything. This was the friendliest park we have ever stayed, from the residents to the staff. We were there for only a few days but people were quickly urging us to stay longer. Most the people we talked to return year after year. You are recognized as a newcomer but quickly accepted. The rec room was central with many planned activities. Pool was very popular with the guys (4 tables). WIFI was available only in this area. We would definitely stay here again if in the area. Streets are concrete but almost all sites were on grass. Some with concrete patios. Sites are decent size and easy to back into. Next time we would insist on a concrete patio so it is not so messy if rainy. Right now there is a lot of construction in the area so call ahead for directions as exits may be closed. The construction frontage road barriers do make for a tight turn for a large motor home when leaving.
We enjoyed our stay in the wooded section of the park. Parking a large rig with slides can be very difficult in this area due to the large trees. You better be good at back-in maneuvering--else head to the bay sites. Our wooded site was very comfortable once we were in. Our picnic table and fire pit was almost completely hidden and private. Suggest you drive around first and find the best spot for you. Bird watching was great!
We stayed here last year and returned again because of its close proximity to the city and bus service across the street. This is one of the nicest KOA's we've stayed at. Last year we were not thrilled with our spot because the sites seemed too close together. This year we had a larger site and we were much happier.The staff was efficient and very friendly. Would return here anytime we are in the San Antonio area.
This park was OK and we would consider staying here again if we are in the area; however, our back-in site was very unlevel, tight and not big rig friendly. The area was muddy with little grass. The restrooms and showers were very clean.
We enjoyed this park close to Austin. The park did have to close down our last day due to a sewer break--we were unable to use the restrooms or use the dump station. Lots of deer around and nice walking/biking paths. Pull through sites very convenient for large motorhome.
Price 50% with Passport America. Would not stay here again and definitely would not pay the full price of $50 for this place. The front desk was very inefficient--this park is definitely NOT "one of the best in America." We had a difficult time maneuvering through the tight roads and close shrubs. Adjacent to very busy highway. Our site was decent since it was halfway back through the park and we had lots of shrubbery which offered some privacy.
Great gulf front/view state park. Very happy they have WIFI. Nice spacious spots. Would have given a 10 if they had sewer hookups at site and bathrooms were better maintained (clean but needing repairs). Price quoted with state pass. We were told the rate was going up 1-12-07. Only one campground of 3 was open. We were told they were only allowed to open the other sections if "reservations" were at capacity. We got last two sites without reservation but did notice they opened the section section later in the day.
Decent small place considering this seemed to be the only RV park in the area. Maneuvering our 40ft RV was tough due to trees and tight turns. Only a few spots we could fit in. A bit pricey but very clean pool and restrooms.
Stayed in campground 1 of 3. Believe all sites are reservable. This is one of the best state parks we have stayed at. The only negative was no sewer or water hookups in the park. We arrived early Friday and were able to find a spot. By Friday evening the campground was full. Large spacious spots. Most wooded but some more open spots for satellite TV. Will definitely return here. There was a large pool but was closed in Sept.
The managers were extremely nice and accommodating. They are working hard to improve the CG. The MAJORITY of the sites are currently "semi-perm" residents with alot of junk around. Residents are coming and going all the time thus the gravel drives caused alot of dust. Unfriendly residents cut through our spot several times a day to take their trash to the already overflowing dumpster. Spots are spacious: enough for slides and awnings. The location is within walking distance to the bay. The price was right. The CG has parking for RVs headed on cruises: very reasonable compared to parking in Vancouver.
This was a great park in a great area. Most of the sites are very spacious. We would stay here again. The staff was very accommodating considering we showed up without a reservation. The only downside was there were many tents here so the bathrooms were very busy. Expect to wait to take a shower.
Would never want to stay at this park again. They cram in too many RVs into tight spots. Our 40ft motorhome had to be backed up right to the awning of the 40ft motorhome behind us and our front passenger mirror still extended onto the street. We felt like sardines.
Nice small, friendly park. The staff has a nightly bonfire which was great to get people out visiting. At the same time they had an outdoor "movie time". A little noisy since it faces the highway. Nice view.
Lot 25 provided a spacious partial ocean view. This is a great state park with lots of exploring opportunities. Close to the quaint town of Port Townsend. This park is where parts of Officer And A Gentleman was filmed.
Great views of Glacier Ntl Park and surrounding mountains. This gravel campground has mostly unlevel spots (very unlevel). The staff was very good. WIFI only available in the office area. Had outdoor hot tubs. Only complaint was the women's shower drain backed up when more than one person in the shower.
We feel this park misrepresented themselves in all advertising we saw. The above ground swimming pool had no water in it and looked as though it has been empty for some time. We had no firepit or table as advertised. The young man told us the sewer connection was on opposite side than actually was. The WIFI was not available even when parked very close to the office. Thought the staff was rude. A man went into office in a.m. asking if they had coffee. When the man walked out the lady said "do they think we grow it here?" Would never stay here again.
