When we called to make a reservation for a week, the office was insistent upon our coming to McGee's Landing first to pay for our week, sign a contract, and then take our money. After we did that, we were told to cross over the levee to the campground. Now I know why we were told to come to McGee's Landing, first. Upon our entrance to the campground we saw: 1. an old washing machine, 2. old tires, 3. empty beer bottles, 4. an old vehicle with its hood propped open, 5. massive amounts of personal trash, 6. an office that is closed and has an old worn out ice maker propped on the porch, 7. broken lawn chairs/other broken items, 8. other campsites that were under water that appeared to have sewage in them, 9. large equipment tearing up tree trunks. We parked our RV only to be approached by a massive sewer smell. There was mud everywhere. It was impossible to walk our dogs without being in mud or approached by stray cats. I will never stay here again!
Ugh, first of all, you have to travel through a trailer park to even get to the "camping" area. We were lucky enough to get a "concrete pad" to park our 5th wheel, but only because my husband is a pro at parking our 38 footer did we even manage making it into our spot. The ongoing humming of some kind of electric facility was very annoying, and the entire park was rundown. Again, with limited options, this appeared the "best of the worst," but if I had it to do over again, I'd keep moving onto the next town. The office staff was friendly and helpful, but for 29 bucks a night, this is a total rip off.
Our rate of 26 dollars a night is a weekly rate, along with a "lake view." We spent two weeks here. The lake view option gave us a "bigger spot/area." The laundry area was immaculate. The office staff was very friendly! And, since we spent two weeks here, we even got to be a part of the park's Mardi Gras "parade" and other activities. The nice walking path along the lake. Made it ideal for our dogs. The lake is stocked with fish, and the park is very clean. We would definitely stay here, again!
You have to "travel thru" a run down area to get to the state park...this can be "off putting". Because we had a 38 foot RV, we opted to camp in campground B. Either way, this is the nicer of the two campgrounds. If you have a long rig, I would encourage you to park your rig in a spot and then report to the state park/campground offices. We did note that some spots had sewer in addition to water/ electric. Since we were not needing sewer, and most of the spots, with sewer, were reserved we opted for the 18 bucks a night, option. Very quiet, scenic and away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
With very few options in Vicksburg, your choices are "slim to none". I had read previous reviews about how this place would be good to stay at for a nite or two...and I concur. We ended up staying 4 days...and that was too long. Most of this park is dedicated to long term campers...with run down facilities. It had just rained 10 days in a row and the muddy conditions of the gravel "interior" were unacceptable. The small size of the park, along with the ongoing truck traffic and megawatt outdoor lights detracted from our experience and didn't warrant the excessive price. I wouldn't stay here, again.
Oh my goodness: this is an incredible find! We learned that "parish" parks are not the same as "state" parks. We had an incredible view of the small lake. And the walking path around the lake was perfect for our 2 dogs. This was so picturesque that we hated to leave! I am sure that during the other months of the year that this place would be hard to get into without a reservation. The office staff was very helpful and the scenery: very beautiful. We'd stay here, again: in a New York minute!
This was a very clean park. It is obvious that about half of the park is "long term". Since we were able to use our Passport America discount...and only needed to stay one night...therefore, that is the reason for the 16 dollar nightly rate. The office staff was incredibly nice and helpful. We were able to get propane even tho it was "off hours" for propane. The size of the park made it easy for me to walk my dogs. They also have a little "doggie park". The swimming pool area looked really nice. We would definitely stay here, again!
A family owned RV park, this is conveniently located just blocks off of the Ouray main street. The view of the mountains, from the park, is very scenic. The owners were very helpful with tourist info and our spot was nice and roomy. I would definitely stay in this park, again!!!
Only because we were able to get a $16 rate for 50amp during 100+ degree weather: that we decided to stay here. The park is very run down with a "junkyard" appearance. Upon our arrival on Friday afternoon, several "drinking buddies" came up to us and quizzed us about our 5th wheel. From there on out, my husband occupied me each time we walked our dogs. I assumed because this was a Passport America park that we'd experience something else. Boy, was I wrong!
