This is a beautiful park. The hosts are very friendly and helpful. 2/3 of the sites are reservable, and 1/3 are walk up only. The A loop has 50 amp electricity (in most sites), but it also has an extremely tight cul-de-sac turnaround with a tree in the middle--not recommended for fifth wheels longer than 32'. The B loop has 30 amp electricity (in most sites) and has three pull-throughs. Some of the B loop sites will accommodate big rigs. However, the B loop is lower ground and floods first when the water rises.
Very basic park. All pull throughs on gravel. Each site has two small trees. Sites 21-25 have 50 amp. Only two sites were in use when we were there. RV park is behind the Produce Barn, which is behind the convenience store/service station. Only restrooms are in store. Dump is available, but campers pay the same fee as the public: $5. To find on map systems, search for "All American Food" in Fruitland. This park is right off I-84 and is fine for an overnight, but we probably wouldn't stay much longer.
Great park for birdwatching, rafting, fishing, hiking, kicking back, and getting away from it all. Spectacular scenery. Seven day limit. Verizon signal weak and sometimes unreliable. No facilities except vault toilets and dumpsters. Bring your own water. Small blacktop boat ramp. Day use picnic sites. Sites and roads are good level blacktop with picnic tables (all wheelchair accessible) and fire rings. Many are suitable for big rigs. Some partially shaded, some in full sun. A few pull-throughs, several tent sites. On site host. Price reflects senior access pass rate.
We've stayed in this park overnight several times. It's very close to the big Valero refinery and the highway, so not a quiet place. Most of the sites are occupied by long term oil field workers. Definitely call in advance. 361-786-4324 is the host couple phone. (361) 786-2528 is the phone number of the City of Three Rivers, and if the host phone doesn't answer, they may be able to supply an updated number. Pleasant place, nice trees, river, birdwatching park across the street accessible via underpass is good for walking. The park was full, so we asked and were allowed to dry camp for free, but this is at the discretion of the hosts.
Absolutely beautiful setting, spacious grassy areas. It really does look like a golf course! Lovely lake. Friendly people. Sites with sewer are fairly close together. Non-sewer sites are very large, and some are even huge. We camped in site 8, on the water, and site 22, a bit farther from the lake, but still a waterfront site. We actually didn't see any bad sites. Good hiking on the Bearwaller Trail along a bluff above the lake. Good Verizon signal for both phone and Internet modem.
We enjoyed this park. It has large sites with gravel pads and patios. Picnic tables and fire rings. Some grills. Very clean and well kept. Rate is senior access and includes reservation fee ($65 for 5 nights). The one downside to this park is that the day use areas are mixed in with the campground, so it can be noisy on the weekends. We were in B-31, directly on the river. B sites are farthest from day use, and riverfront sites are especially nice. Most sites are ok for satellite. Good Verizon signal for phone and Internet modem. Recreation.gov does not indicate on their map the very large marina, which is adjacent to the A loop. Some A loop sites look on the map and are indicated on the website as "shoreline," but the river cannot be seen because it's behind the marina.
Great view of the Mississippi River. Sites from 12-20 are located a bit farther south and are on higher ground (important because the lower numbered sites are especially likely to flood). Water is shared by 2-3 sites. Concrete pads are short, but the large well packed gravel area by the upper sites can accommodate big rigs. Portable restrooms only (we didn't use them). Electric is ONLY 50 amp or 20 amp (no 30 amp, so rigs needing 30 would require a 50 to 30 adapter). Pay at City Hall in town (as advised on sign at park). Dump located behind 218 Main St. is easily accessible. This is a small, friendly town. No reservations, but you may want to call the phone number, which is for the town hall, to ask about flooding. The "book now" link on the city's webpage should not be used (http://www.rubbertree.com.au/warsaw/lodging.htm). Advised that reservations for camping are no longer made through this site.
The location on Lake Eufala is great. We stayed in the east section. This is a former COE park, so lots of trees, wildflowers, birds, bunnies, space. Staff friendly and helpful. We definitely enjoyed out stay. Some issues: lakefront sites are basically blacktop parking; noise from highway and railroad; restrooms are woefully inadequate: old, not well maintained (door missing from a stall in the women's), far away from the lakefront sites, not nearly enough for the number of campsites. This would not be a problem for self contained units (like ours). Also, our site has ONLY 50 amp electric outlet and utilities are on the wrong side. Any rig with only 30 amp electric would need a 50 to 30 adapter to use these sites (there are sites elsewhere with 30 amp service). Although the park is family friendly, the only playground we saw was in a tenting area. This would be a great place for boaters and anglers.
Wonderful park, great hosts. We used this as a base to visit Taos, Los Alamos, Bandelier National Monument, and Santa Fe as well as the nearby Ghost Ranch where Georgia O'Keeffe painted, and other local attractions. The scenery is breathtaking. The campground is very peaceful, partly because it's on a bluff overlooking the lake, so you can see but mostly not hear the boats. Needs more electric sites than the current 15. We had to move three times in the two weeks we were there to piece together reservations. Reserve early. Don't expect to find any walk up electric sites available most of the time in this beautiful spot!
We love this campground. The sites are long, level, paved, well laid out, with lake views and lots of trees, mainly pines. Picnic tables are aluminum and on concrete patios. Nice fire rings/grates. Peaceful. Most sites would not have good satellite reception because of the trees (but 110 and 130 both worked for us). Verizon data service is slow and sometimes spotty, but acceptable. All the sites now have 30/50 amp electric. We think this campground is much nicer than the nearby Buckhorn. Rate reflects senior discount. Electric and water RV sites in area 2 (201-224) are first come/first served (although this is not mentioned on the Recreation.gov website).
Nice small roadside park, nothing fancy, but quite adequate for an overnight. Very friendly folks. They weren't full, so we were able to pull through and stay hooked up to our fifth wheel. Level but narrow paved pad, some shade trees. It's right on US 287 just east of Clarendon. One shower, one restroom (which we didn't use) behind curio/fireworks stand. We'd stay here again.
Rate reflects $12 per night camping fee, plus $5 per day per person over 15 (to spend one night, you must pay two days' entry permit fees). This seems excessive to us for what you get. From US 287: TX 70 N approx 4 mi. Near Greenbelt Reservoir. Limit 2 weeks. Cold showers only. Sites have electric, share water. Level concrete pads, some sites narrow, all fairly short, but 38' rig could hang over. Swimming-lake, fishing, boat ramp.
This city park has first come first served sites, all back-in, with 30 amp electric, water, and dump across 8th street. Donation. 3-day limit. I-25 exit 78, go east 1 block to 16 St. Turn south 1 block to Cole Rd, then east 8 blocks to 8th St, then north, 2 blocks to County Park on left. Nearby RxR but trains infrequent. Playground, swimming pool, etc. adjacent. Large Cottonwood trees. Good cell service, most sites open to south for sat/solar. Wi-Fi at Library.
Rate includes daily entry fee of $6 per vehicle in addition to $20 for camping in a 50 amp electric site. Water hydrants located throughout the loop. Spectacular views of the Spanish Peaks and Sangre de Cristo Mountains. Large, well kept sites with picnic tables and fire rings. Has a children's playground, two lakes and a nature trail. Easy availability Monday though Thursday, but reserve ahead for weekends.
We planned to stay here but left after driving around and checking the place out. Generally, the previous reviewer has it right--this place feels like a dump, and in addition to road noise, there was noisy construction equipment on site. No one was in the office. Everything generally run down.
This park might be okay for an overnight. It's basically a gravel parking lot. They advertise shady sites, but all the trees are much too small to provide any real shade. The laundry machines worked okay, but the couch has a broken leg, and the place is dirty, as are the restrooms and showers. Hosts were friendly. This park is mainly used by overnighters and off-roaders. It's run down. The Wi-Fi was weak at first, and then the server crashed and never came back online while we were here. We would not stay here again.
Very friendly management! Quiet older campground, gravel roads and sites, convenient for visiting Mammoth Cave. Rate reflects Escapees discount. We planned to stay only one night, but the place was so peaceful and pleasant that we extended another night. Owner obviously cares about campers and is working to upgrade. Restrooms are older but clean and serviceable. There is a small catch and release pond. We would definitely camp here again.
Very nice owner. We called in advance and were assigned a site. Since we were arriving late for an overnight stay, he asked us to leave the payment in a drop box near the entrance on our way out. While not a destination park, this is a fine place to overnight: quiet and convenient to I-40 (only about 4 miles off the highway). Our only complaint is that the sites are set up for mobile homes, so the electric and water were on our curbside, and the sewer outlet was under the rig. Also, it has been raining, and the patio is on the wrong side for us also.
This is a Good Sam rate for a water/electric site. Our site is a grassy pull-through, just what we needed for a quick overnight stay, but very unlevel. Owners quite friendly. We did not use any of the facilities, but everything looks clean and neat. The park advertises Wi-Fi, but it wasn't available at our site, even though we're very near the office. However, our Verizon broadband and DirecTV dish worked fine. The location just off I-80 is very convenient, and it's far enough off to be quiet. We would stay here again.
Sites are large and wooded. Gray Line Tours runs a shuttle to the campground. Nearby bike trail leads to Ottawa River Trail. It's about 14 miles to Parliament Hill--a nice ride. Laundry has new front loaders. Wi-fi is available only near office (laundry, office, parking lot).
WE DID NOT STAY HERE. The roads approaching the campground are unpaved, narrow, have large holes, and have significant overhead branches low enough to damage big rigs (including ours). Once you start down the road, there is no place to turn around. When it rains it is very muddy. This campground is suitable only for very small rigs and tents. The main reason to come here would be to rent canoes.
Most sites are shady, with trees between sites providing privacy. Many sites are small, basically tent sites, but a few would accommodate a big rig (one 40 foot motorhome in the park now). Staff very friendly. Convenient to Hwy 75 and Mackinac Island. Nice views of Lake Huron.
Large park in an urban area. Wide roads, easy to access sites, but some around the edges have no patios or picnic tables (they are just parking lot style spaces). The laundry room was small but clean and nice. Rate reflects AARP discount.
Mostly long term residents, right next to mpodu freeway. Basically a gravel parking lot with adjacent RV repair shop. We had reservations, but when we arrived we were offered one of two "new" sites (translation: they had put in a utility pole, but no driveway, table, etc.). Run-down looking.
This is a lovely park with nice trees, a small lake, and large, well spaced sites. However, each camping loop is one way, so half the pull-through sites will end up with your door facing the street instead of your patio. Also, nearly half the sites have the utilities on the patio side. If you look closely at the site photos on the website, you can see the layout for a site you are considering. Only sites 51 and higher have paved patios. We camped in site 56, which is lovely. There are some flies this time of year, but the cows appear to be gone from the neighboring dairy farm, so that situation may be getting better.
