A lot of upgrades are going on at this park. All the sites have new water and electric, so no more sharing of the electric pedestal. There are several pull-throughs that are fully paved. The other sites are gravel, but look new. The pull-through sites must be about 75-80 feet long! There are also 2 washers and dryers. The camp hosts were very friendly and when we pointed out a low branch, they immediately sent someone over to trim it. The roads are a little narrow, but very navigable. No low branches hanging down.The dump station is well placed, directly in the path as you leave. Both AT&T and Verizon had voice and data signal. The gate is locked at 10 PM, if that matters to anyone.
The roads and sites are wide and easy to navigate. The nightly rate listed on their website is wrong. The price has increased. My rate reflects the Good Sam discount. The Wi-fi worked ok most of the time, but slowed to a crawl a couple of times. There is a nice clubhouse with a small book exchange. The laundry "room" is a single washer and dryer, stacked, in a room barely big enough to stand in, with no where to fold your clothes.
As has been mentioned, this is a pretty typical COE park. The roads are easy to navigate and the sites are all pretty big. The gate is locked at 10 pm so this is not a good place to stay if you want the night life of Austin. AT&T and Verizon both worked well here. There IS a hiking trail that goes all the way around the lake. We hiked 10 miles of it.
I have no idea why this campground has never been reviewed. We stayed here for two nights. Its pretty standard COE except there are so many trees it makes maneuvering a little difficult. The roads are newly paved but a little narrow, especially for a big rig. There are a lot of equestrians here and the campground is near Mark Twain Lake. Very peaceful and quiet. We"d stay here again.
This is definitely not my favorite campground. The highway noise is some of the worst I've ever camped near. I knew that going in, but it was so loud we couldn't sit outside. Inside the trailer it was OK because we have good insulation. There were only a few TV stations available using the antenna. There is a charge for WiFi, but our Verizon and AT&T cellular both worked fine. The lady at check-in was not overly friendly, but she was efficient. All the sites are full hookup so the "$15 fee to dump" is only for people who are not staying in the park. The sites were nice long pull throughs, and easy to navigate. We would stay here again, for one night as we passed through the area.
We've stayed here several times because the location ie near where we need to be. There are a variety of types of sites- pull thrus, lake front, shaded, 30/50 amp, full hookup and just W/E. The Wi-Fi didn't work well enough for us -too slow for basic stuff even- and we ended up using our own hot spot. Both Verizon and AT&T worked fine. the people are nice, but we feel the price is a little high, given the amenities. Our rate was the weekly rate. There are two good laundries. As stated, the roads are dirt, but wide and very packed.
I don't usually review parks that already have several recent reviews but this park deserves it. Friendly people, excellent value for the money, and sites that are pretty easy to get in and out of. Each site has a firepit of some kind, either in ground or above ground. The lake is a little weedy looking, but there were people out there enjoying the water. There are canoes etc., available to campers free of charge, a nice touch.
This is a clean, well kept park, convenient to the city. The LDS shuttle was very convenient, but there was much confusion by the front desk as to the schedule of it. Although at check-in they mentioned the AAA discount, they forgot to give it to me. Verizon and AT&T cell and data worked well, which was good, because the Wi-Fi at the park was so pathetic, I used my hot spot. When I mentioned the Wi-Fi to the front desk, she mentioned how much they had spent on infastructure and that people hog bandwith by streaming movies. Whatever the reason, I wasn't happy about it. The only other complaint was the hot tub. It was overrun with tons of little kids every time I wanted to use it. I would look at other options next time we are in town.
We actually Had 3 different rates during our stay here. The first week we got 50% off for taking the sales tour. We extended our stay by 2 nights and paid full price for them ($44/night), then it was March so we could extend again at the PA rate. We had good cell (AT&T) and our hot spot worked, which was good because their Wi-Fi is useless. Completely useless. The people are nice and the hot tubs and pools are awesome-I hated to leave. Seasonal have to buy a laundry card for $5, then load it with money. None of the machines take cash, but the office lent us a card, and we loaded it with money to use, so that was nice. I get very irritated when a park advertises Wi-Fi, but when I get there it's so slow I can't get on the web. Many of the RV sites are sand, so it gets tracked in the rig, but you can wash your rig here and my husband likes that.
This campground gets a high rating, because it is as advertised: a no frills RV park. They have added brand new bathrooms with showers and a laundry room. There are no picnic tables or fire pits, but the sites are all huge pull throughs. It can be windy in this area, so be careful. Both Verizon and AT&T worked fine. We've stayed here several times, and will likely stay here again. Its convenient to west El Paso.
I think this park has seen better days. The Wi-Fi does not work at all. They told us that when we checked in. We weren't too happy to hear it, but they didn't seem to care about it. The sites are narrow but usable. The pool is really nice, although it was closed, due to the time of year. The hot tub is an old one, not built in, but like one you might have in your back yard. It had duct tape in some places. I tried to do laundry, but only two of the four washers worked, one had dirty clothes in it and the other was in use. Only one dryer DIDN'T have an "out of order" sign. Since the room smelled bad anyway, I gave up and left. Our AT&T cellphones worked fine. For this price we will go elsewhere next time.
When I review an RV park I don't deduct a lot of points for a lack of "amenities" if I knew before I got there that those amenities didn't exist. This park met and exceeded my expectations because the sites were level, easy to get in and out of, and big enough to handle anything. The Wi-fi worked great, as did my cell phone. There is a laundry room, but not much else. It is behind a small RV dealer, but the entrance is visible and easy to get to from the main road. There is a little road noise, but not too loud. There isn't too much grass; it's mostly gravel with cement pads for the rig. I would stay here again while passing through the area.
We stopped in Del Rio just to relax for a couple of days and this place was a great place to do that. It's very well laid out, and roomy. Although we didn't use the pool, it is beautiful. Our AT&T phones worked fine. We initially thought we had a problem with the Wi-Fi, and the owner helped us deal with the provider. It turned out, the issue was with our computer, not their Wi-Fi. The owner was great, very nice, and helpful. The park is spotless. The laundry room looks brand new and has a rec room attached, complete with computer, books, puzzles etc. The fitness room had plenty to do to keep us fit, and was in pristine condition. All in all, a great park. The only thing I didn't like was that the owner's dog has free reign of the property. He is very friendly, but I have a cat that I like to let out on a leash, and I am not a dog lover. I would definitely stay here again.
This campground just re-opened after being closed for renovations. There are now some sites with sewer and some sites with water, but not all of them have it. We couldn't use the sewer, I think because it was closed for the season already. We were here the last day they were open. This is a typically beautiful COE campground with a great lake. My cell phone (AT&T) worked fine, and we did get a couple of channels on the TV. My biggest issue here was the fact that even though they just renovated, the sites weren't that easy to get into. The pads are only 10 feet wide (but very long) and the road is narrow as well, and because it's pretty hilly in some areas, we were trying to back up without much room and visibility. Some sites were better than others. Also, many of the sites are extremely unlevel. Ours looked pretty level but we still had to use two yellow blocks.
The sites were big but they were so unlevel that we had a very difficult time setting up our 5th wheel. When we finally did, it looked like IT was tilted but its just that the ground was so sloped (both front to back and side to side). I am not sure how a motorhome would be able to compensate enough. We were in Quartzite, since the other campgrounds were closed. Our neighbors kept letting their dogs off their leash (as did several others) even after I asked them not to because I have a cat out on the leash. Most of the time we had no cell signal (AT&T) but we did get 2 channels on the TV. The dump station had very low hanging branches, causing us to scratch the top of our trailer. If you don't have a National Park Pass or Wisconsin State pass, you'll have to get one to camp here, adding to the cost. Next time I'd probably stay somewhere else.
Overall this park was fine: we weren't interested in the amenities like the pool etc., which was closed for the season anyway. We had a couple of frustrations. Our site was really not level and we had to put multiple blocks under the tires to make it level. We had to "thread the needle" to get into the site because people had evidently dug their own fire pits as there were big holes everywhere. We had to ask the workers to cut down some branches, since they were so low they were sitting on our roof. The laundry room was fine and was in a nice clubhouse. I doubt I would stay here again. The Wi-Fi was hit or miss, we only had Electric and Water, no sewer, so the $32 price was a bit high considering everything was pretty much closed up for the season, (even the store had very few items left).
This is the second time we have stayed here. The sites are easy, grassy pull-throughs, and reasonably level. Each site has a picnic table, and a lot of shade. The owners are nice people- they prefer if you call 30 minutes before you arrive, so they can be there to meet you, but if you don't, you can just pick a site. The campground has quite a few permanent people, some mobile homes, some permanent trailers. There are no amenities, but we like staying here because its very convenient to Ball State University and the town of Muncie.
First I have to say, I think that technically this park is in Prosperity, SC, not Chapin. There are two campground loops: A and B. We were in A-site 12. The whole campground has a lot of shade trees. Our pad wasn't quite level, but not too bad. The site itself had quite a slope to it, but we had great access to the water right at our site. We kept our small boat right outside our door. One thing we had to get used to was that the people with a site that isn't on the water would come over to our site to fish. The loop road was not in wonderful condition and is very narrow. We handled it fine, but a really large rig might have difficulty. I don't know if the other loop would be better for a big rig. We stayed here for two weeks and really enjoyed being right on the water. A very peaceful morning cup of coffee!
This COE campground just re-opened after being closed for a couple of years. It is right on Lake Sidney Lanier. A lot of the sites are on the water, but access is limited due to an abrupt drop off. The sites are large and pretty level, with a large, level area for the picnic table and fire pit. There is a boat ramp and a swimming area as well. There is also a washer and dryer in the bath house. We were in site 27, and it would combine well with site 28 if there were several people traveling together. The camp host was great- he suggested sites, then let us go pick our own. Everything was clean and neat, well laid out and exceeded my expectations.
The site we had was a pull through- it was pretty level, with reasonably good access to it. We chose 30 amp because 50 amp is a few dollars more and we didn't need it. The Wi-Fi, which was my main reason for choosing this campground was good. I had no issues, other than it was sometimes a little slow, but not bad. I made the bad decision to do laundry. The laundry room was disgustingly dirty. Leftover soap was hardened onto the washers, and they smelled like mold. They also didn't hold enough water- less than half a tub. The swimming pool was fine- the water was so warm it wasn't refreshing, but that is no one's fault. Would I stay here again? No. I would look for someplace else next time.
We stayed here over night- the owners were very nice, down to earth people. The Wi-Fi was great, the TV reception was not. Easy pull through sites with a few trees. It was very level and all the hookups worked fine. The owner had a lot of movies people can borrow. There is a grocery store within walking distance. We would definitely stay here again. Our rate reflects Passport America discount.
After the first 30 minutes at this campground, if we could have found another option we would have left. The "pull through" was set up like a short road with 2 pull throughs on each side and a road in the middle. That meant that our door opened out into the dusty road instead of the grass, and only the first to arrive on each side really gets a pull though- we had to back in. Worse than that, our Power Management system shut off our power 3 times in the first 10 minutes due to low voltage, so we had to move to another site (we checked the voltage there before moving!). The site was far from level and the water posts had duct tape all over them. The train track was so close we could have hit it with a rock. Not too many went by at night though. On the plus side, The staff were helpful with our issues, the laundry was nice, and even had a sitting room with a TV, and the water tasted great. There was a fenced dog area, but we don't have a dog. This place was way overpriced for what you got. It might appeal to families with young kids, since there were activities- but check the electrical carefully.
We arrived and checked in with no problem. The staff was courteous. We were only going to be here for one night so we chose electric only, not a full hookup. Our site was so narrow that my husband had to make 3 passes in order to get just the right angle, so that we could open our 3 slides, and the door. The bushes were encroaching onto the site too much. We didn't want to disconnect the truck but had no choice, since the site was also too short. I thought we were supposed to have cable TV but there was none at our site, and none at the nearby sites. Maybe its only at the FHU sites, but it doesn't say that anywhere. the Wi-Fi was free and worked well. Overall, aside from our frustrations, it seems like a nice park, especially for families. If I stayed here again I would check out the site first.
After passing by several run down RV Parks in the area, this one was a welcome sight. It's located right off the highway but there was no noise at all. Its very well laid out and easy to navigate. There is gated security and they give you the code. There was free Wi-Fi, but at times it was slow to the point of uselessness. There is a gas station, store and restaurant, with a small clubhouse room for RV patrons. The restaurant is fast food Mexican, but pretty tasty. We did take-out and ate it in our rig. Our rate reflects the Passport America discount, which they honored even though I couldn't find them listed in the PA directory. We would definitely stay here again.
This is a small, well kept RV Park. The entrance is a gravel road, but its in good condition and has easy access. The sites are good sized, landscaped and level. Management was friendly and helpful. There is a small clubhouse with tons of magazines, books and movies to borrow, table and sofas, bathroom, and a small exercise room. We were handed a sheet with local maps and things to do, as well as a listing for TV stations ( no cable, but we did get a few good stations). There were two things I didn't like. One was that there were dogs around that were not on leashes. I have a cat who is leashed, but I can't walk him if there are loose dogs around. The second is that I didn't know Wi-Fi was available until after I left. Their website doesn't mention it, and there was no information about it on the sheet we were given. It wasn't that important to me so I didn't ask about it. We don't travel with kids so we are looking for different things in a park, and this one was great for us.
This is one of the best campgrounds we have stayed in this year. The site we had (Select) was large enough for us, had a tree, and a view of the beach. The 2 pools, 2 hot tubs and grounds are clean and well maintained. Our first night we found out they were giving free shuttle rides to look at Christmas lights, so we went. Turns out they have shuttles that go several places. There are a lot of activities, including dances with live bands. Most activities are for kids (we have none with us) but some are adult oriented. Once school let out, it did get overrun with kids who aren't always polite and careful not to run into pedestrians. The amenities are all great- but I did feel like the boat/bike/jet ski rental prices were high. Overall, we would love to come back!
This campground is conveniently located off the highway, but far enough away so that you don't hear any noise, and very close to Mammoth Cave NP. When we arrived we spoke to the owner and a "volunteer", both of whom were very nice and very helpful. They gave us a sheet with a list of local stores, restaurants, and attractions, and how to find them. Our site was gravel, reasonably level, and a pull through, which was nice, because the sites that others had to back into were on the small side. The Wi-Fi was excellent, very fast, and free. Although there is no cable, we did receive about 10 channels on the T.V. When we noticed our fire pit had no ring, we requested one, and minutes later had the ring, and the firewood to put in it! Very nice. Its a reasonably "no frills" campground- it has no laundry, no pool, and just a swing set or two for the kids. That suits us fine because its all we need but someone who wants to entertain kids should probably look elsewhere. We stayed here as members of Passport America, and they honored it for all 4 nights.
