The good. 1. Large spaces. 2. Quiet (no trains or planes). 3. Good laundry. 4. Lots of trees. 5. Very friendly manager and host. 6. Good quality water (about 50 PPM) better than most municipal water. 7. Concrete patios with newer wooden picnic tables. 8. Strong 50A electric service. 9. Strong AAT cellular service. The bad. 1. WiFi is only available in a very limited area. The antenna booster management loaned to us did not improve this. Word in the park is the owner will not pay the cost of improving the system. 2. Water pressure is 110 PSI so bring a reducer or risk springing some leaks. 3. No cable TV but about a dozen broadcast stations are available on an antenna. 4. On some days a bulldozer was operating in the park. There seems to be a lot of “work in progress” associated with the pond adjacent to the area where the pull thru spaces are. Other. 1. Park is principally occupied by long term guests. The host has been here nearly 4 years and many of the trailers appear to have not moved in a long time. Many occupants leave early in weekday mornings presumably to their jobs. 2. Most roadways in the pull thru section are not paved and the noise of vehicles “crunching” thru the gravel breaks the otherwise enjoyable silence. 3. $150 per week including electricity for a large pull thru space. 4. We would stay here only for a night or two if in the area again.
Just a place to stop for a night. Level gravel/dirt sites with good hookups but that is all folks. One other camper there. Nice owners; we were invited into their kitchen to register and pay. Cash or checks only. Was nice to get out of the chilly wind. Far enough from 1-40 so was quiet. Knew this place wasn't much when we made travel plans so weren't disappointed.
A gravel parking lot with concrete curbs in a barren desert. Utilities worked and sites are reasonably level but that's all folks. Definitely NOT a destination park and for us not more than a place to park over night. Definitely no frills and nothing attractive.
Water pressure was a dismal 25 PSI and there were dog droppings on the roads around the park. When brought to the attention of staff we were told "we'll let management know" implying something might be done. Never was in the 3 days we were there. Park is very old and run down. We stopped here to wait out the high winds of a storm. We'll never come back.
This park is without question the best place we have stayed in over 7 years of full time travel all over America. We don’t give praise unless it is deserved and this place earns all we can give. It is meticulously maintained in an impeccable condition and is located in the most gorgeous environment we’ve seen in a long time. Words will never begin to adequately describe the beauty here. And the park blends into it all perfectly and unobtrusively. All the ground is covered with small red gravel that is regularly raked of debris to make it smooth and clean. Each site has a picnic table and there are many large trees providing shade. The WiFi service was nearly always constant and strong. The laundry room has 4 washers and dryers and is maintained spotlessly. There is also a steam iron and board to use if you like. The restrooms in the laundry building have huge showers. There is a wonderfully comfortable small (2 person) hot tub that always worked wonderfully. A fire pit and wood is provided in the community gathering area and we spent many an evening chatting with other guests from all over the US and Europe. On Saturday mornings the owners (who live in the park) provide coffee and donuts in the pavilion. There is a trail we walked through the forest at the back of the park to the nearby creek. Always a delight. The spaces are quite large; the one we had (#19) was approximately 40’ wide by 60’ long. It backed up to a lawn area which ran across the back of all the sites in this row. It was quiet there and the WiFi was strong too. The water quality tested very good; only about 100 parts per million which is “city water” standards. There were no taste or pressure issues so we did not use a pressure reducer. Many of the folks we met are regulars and stay for months during the winter. The park is “adult oriented” so didn’t have screaming children and crying babies. Everyone is quite friendly and there is a definite sense of community. Folks remember your name and say hello when met again. The owners and hosts are top notch; very accommodating and helpful. We hesitated posting such a validating review fearing it would draw so many visitors we’d have trouble getting a spot in the future. But this park is truly special and absolutely deserves all the praise we can give. It is the only park we have ever been sorry to leave and is so good we actually considered staying on indefinitely. This is unquestionably the best place we have ever stayed, ever.
We stayed here Feb and March and liked the place generally. It is basically a gravel parking lot with a few trees and bushes. We picked our site by looking at aerial photos of it on the web. It was near one of the Wi-Fi antennas and we had a beautiful view of the golf course and mountains in the distance. After a month in this very nice spot the park admitted two very low grade and dangerous looking men with a small and decrepit 60 year old trailer. They put them right next to us and we were woken by their cussing and swearing as they tried to set up their ancient and decrepit trailer. Management said they’d stay 2 months so we moved to another location far from there. The down side of the move was the Wi-Fi wasn’t strong anymore. But we felt safer that’s for sure. The water is from a well and we began to notice spots if drops were allowed to dry on surfaces. A clerk at the local ACE Hardware told us the park has a history of blowing hoses on RVs as their pressure can get quite high. We tested it and found it was 120 lbs so installed our pressure reducer. We also tested the water for particulate content and found why we were seeing those spots. The parts per million were in the 650 range which is quite high. “City water” is supposed to come up to only 100-150 ppm. And this test was run on water from the kitchen faucet which first passes through a two stage filter system. The final stage filter is supposed to pull out anything over 1 micron size. We bought bottled water for drinking and making tea. Wind speeds occasionally reached 30 mph when we had windy days so be sure to roll up awnings before they get too strong. They typically come from the north so pick your spot and orientation of your coach with this in mind. Try to put your patio on the south facing side. I would say that rules are not enforced at this park. They include a 5 MPH speed limit that none of the park employees obey as they speed around in their golf carts. Noise too! Folks from two RVs across from us had a party in street in front of their spots and when the laughter and shouting continued passed 11:00 pm we walked to the security guard shack. He said he would go over and check it out but never did and the party went on past midnight. When you camp here you get to use the pool and hot tub at the casino hotel. Just stop by the hotel front desk and ask for a pool “key card”. The casino theater presents current-run movies and the senior price is $7. One of the casino’s restaurants offers regular buffets for about $15 apiece and on Friday’s there is a sea food menu that includes crab legs, shrimp and fish. Go early as the line for this Friday one starts building an hour before it opens. The park has 3 or 4 Wi-Fi antennas and service is better if you park close to them. We moved from our 2nd spot to get more reliable service. This move was to the “extended sites” to the East of the park’s lawn area but the nightly rate increased by $5.00. We asked that a picnic table be brought over to this spot but never saw it the rest of the time we stayed.
All the other reviews adequately describe the facilities. None describe the noise from trains blowing their horns a couple hundred feet away at various times during the night. I would suggest any other place if an good night's sleep is important.
Our rate reflects the Passport America 50% discount. Usually this is limited to 2 nights stay but the manager extended it 2 more as we had follow up medical appointments we had not anticipated. The park is the best place we've been in, and we've been full timing for 5 years. Huge, well laid out park with extra wide streets for ease of maneuvering. The sites are large and the hook ups well located. The pool is wonderful, the laundry had new machines and everything about the place spoke of pride in ownership. We will stay here again if ever in Beaumont in the future. Really, really nice park and great staff.
Large park with maybe 400 sites nestled in a thinly populated forest. Grass covered spots with full hookups at a reasonable rate. The owners are nice and the whole park is very well laid out and cared for. 15 miles from I-10 so no noise. Very comfortable and not crowded at all. Only about 50 sites being used the week we were there. We will come back again if ever in the area.
Mother always told me if you can't say anything nice about something or someone don't say anything at all. The only good thing about this park were the people on either side of us. In the few hours we stayed, we made friends with them and have arranged to meet them in Quartzite in a few months. The park is basically a gravel parking lot with a few small palms. The spaces were small and close together. Utilities were grouped at the mid point of the sites requiring us to pull forward until 5 feet of our 40' coach stuck out into the roadway. And this was specifically the solution from park personnel. The park is located within an industrial area and we heard the whine of machinery running all hours and back up beepers. The place is over priced but admittedly nicer than other parks nearby. The aerial photo their website displays is a less than accurate portrayal of the park.
Park is about 1 year old and very nice. Close to I-40, but not noisy, and there is a Flying J and Pilot at the off ramp. Close to town for groceries and other shopping. Roads in the park are gravel, and access to the medium sized sites is good for 40 footers. Met many short term and long term guests (very friendly) and the owner is very helpful. Great laundry facilties that include gym equipment and a computer with internet access. I stayed about 10 days and would definitely return.
A good place to rest one or two nights before moving on. Nice laundry and some small shops within walking distance but for stocking up with groceries or any other serious shopping one must drive a the interstate a couple of miles north. Owners are very friendly and accommodating and I would stay overnight again when passing through. Nice grassy spots and the manager spots the campers so as to provide as much separation and possible. Quite place the few nights I stayed there. Close to the Interstate but noise level is negligible.
A bit out of the way but a wonderful place. The park is an old estate with an historic home on the property. In October the City of Opelika runs a haunted hay ride and the home is turned into a haunted house. Wonderful diversion indeed. The surrounding forests have a number of trails to walk and the park was very quiet the month I stayed. One weekend a local group of Good Sams used about a dozen of the spaces but the remaining time I had the whole place to myself. The manager and caretaker were extremely friendly and helpful and made the stay even more unforgettable. Park is about 15 miles from town so trips for groceries and laundry require a little driving. Best if you have a toad but I did the "commute" in my 40 foot coach with no real problems.
Very nice place with lots of shade trees and foliage. Owner/manager very nice and friendly and lives next door. Laundry is $1.00 wash, .75 dry. It's a quiet park and most neighbors live year round and are very friendly. I made many friends while here with whom I will stay in touch. Age limit is 55 and older. Park is close to shopping and hospitals and there's a bus stop right in front. The Pinellas Trail is within two blocks and is a fantastic walking/bicycling trail running for 15 miles north and south of the Park. Park is a short drive or bus ride to the beaches.
