Our fifth stay here. Good location convenient to I-20. Nice and quiet. Owners are on-site and couldn't be more accommodating. Great camp store and propane on-site. Free TV and WiFi. Excellent fenced dog run area. Reasonable rates. Will definitely stay again.
We stayed three months through the Winter of 2012-13, our 4th stay here. Not much has changed: the good things are still good and the bad things are still bad. The best feature is the grass-and-trees area along the river. It's the nicest walking area we've found outside of a National Park, and it's the main feature that brings us back to the park each year: great for dogs. The grounds staff does a good job of keeping things neat. Most of the sites are spacious enough and the (concrete) picnic tables are fine. It's fairly quiet except on weekends when the park fills with locals and there's lot of partying. It's in a reasonably good location, not far from WalMart and groceries. There aren't many good restaurants to choose from in Kerrville, but Fredricksburg (25 mi) has some options, and San Antonio is just an hour away. The worst aspect of this park is that they have that useless Tengo Internet, so you'll want to provide for your own Internet service. (As we were leaving, the park put in a higher-bandwidth connection which means, I suppose, that you'll get Tengo's well-known refused logins, dropped connections, and non-existence customer service much faster than before. It beats me why an otherwise nice park insists on using such an awful Internet provider, and charging 35 bucks a month for the privilege.) The saloon is a noisy weekend party spot, and for some reason is allowed to stay open into the park's quiet hours. If you want to sleep, do not accept a site anywhere near the saloon. And be ready for ants in your RV. Bring plenty of ant bait and ant spray. All-in-all, it's OK for an extended stay. A fairly nice park and the rates aren't too bad. We'll probably consider them again next year, but will also check out other places in the area. The rate shown is monthly.
A mid-grade campground at a premium price. I had to be in this area for 10 days and this was the only place I could get. It's not a bad campground, pretty standard. The best feature is a huge field that's great for dog walking. As others have pointed out, there are no services nearby, but it's a reasonably easy drive to Maryville, which has stores and restaurants. Power, water, sewer, cable all good. Wi-Fi service ranges from excellent on some sites to non-existent on others -- if you want Wi-Fi, don't stay on Row A. Verizon MiFi is usable as a backup, but we could only get 1-2 bars 3G service. Sites narrow. Tow vehicles and toads parked all over so maneuvering is a little difficult. Bath houses are nicely designed, but maintenance is questionable -- I found out the hard way that one of the toilets isn't solidly bolted to the floor. No enforcement of dog leash or pickup rules. The real downside is the price. They advertise $47/night for a long pull-through. That alone was high enough to make me think twice. But when you arrive, you learn that the local government is going to hit you with another 14.25% tax, making the price close to $54/night. A campground would have to be SUPER nice to merit a price like that and this place isn't that nice. I'll return to this area, but I'll find somewhere less pricey to stay.
We were here 10 days and enjoyed it. Nice campground with lots of trees. Nice areas to walk dogs. Water, power, and sewer reliable. Bathrooms and showers fine. Owner on-site. Only two washers and driers -- I never had to wait, but if the park was full, that might become a problem. The town nearby doesn't have much, but it's fairly easy drive to Wilmington or Centerville where you can find restaurants, WalMart, etc. As someone else pointed out, the utilities are oddly positioned and we had to connect to water in the front, rather than the back, but that wasn't a problem for us. Wi-Fi didn't work for us, but Verizon MiFi worked OK. We'd stay here again.
Not too bad, but not one of our favorites. This is a nicely arranged campground with a couple of large ponds and lots of trees. We had a pull-through that was long enough to park our combination (58'). One thing I noticed was that there always seemed to be a staff person on patrol for trash pickup and the park stays quite clean. Sites in our area were tighter than I like, but the sites on either side were unoccupied and there are large grassy areas for walking dogs, so it wasn't a problem for us. Rate was reasonable. On the down side, I had trouble with the sewer not wanting to drain properly, probably due to several days of heavy rain and a fully-occupied weekend just before. Lots of flying bugs and you might as well just plan on them getting into your unit. Our site (C-9) was severely sloped. Concrete pad, but the concrete was badly cracked and the rain formed a big puddle underneath us. The park is way out in the boonies over small twisty roads. Even though it has an Owensville address, it's a long haul to town. The park office has some basic supplies and a burger grill, but you're going to want to pack supplies. Warning: there's only pay WiFi. We might stay here again if we're in the area, but we'll look for other options first.
We planned to make this an overnight, but liked the park so well that we stayed 3 nights. The park is a good distance from the interstate, but I didn't have any problems finding it with help from GPS. Nice layout with lots of trees. My site (8) was well-graveled and level. No problems with power, water, sewer, cable, or Wi-Fi. There wasn't much grass between sites in the area we were in, but that didn't bother us much since there was a huge grassed area just across the park road from us. That area's great for dogs. Sites in the part of the park we were in are face-to-face, which might bother some. Friendly, helpful owners are on-site. All-in-all, one of our favorite parks -- we'll return. The rate shown is nightly GS.
We stayed here a month in space 49. A really nice park. Owners are on-site and take excellent care of the grounds and fix problems quickly. Very convenient to shopping and restaurants in town (by car). Power and cable TV very reliable. Minor problem with water was quickly fixed. No Wi-Fi except at/near office. Some road noise, but not enough to disturb. As another reviewer said, some of the spaces are a bit tight, but it looks like they were laid out that way to preserve trees, and I'll take shade over space. Only two washers and dryers, but I never had to wait, so I guess that's enough. Rate shown is monthly and does not include electric (Note that this park is cash only/no refunds). We'll definitely return.
I had to double-check to make sure this was the same park that got 9's in 2009 and 2006. Good grief. $39 for a mud site, bad-tasting water, no Wi-Fi, no cable, no sewer at pull-through sites, $5 dump fee, and an hourly freight train whistle blast from 6:30 am until 10 at night. Trees need trimming for big rig access. Definitely won't stay here again.
We stayed here for a month. This was our second stay and we've enjoyed both. The campground is nicely laid out with good pull-through sites and back-ins along the river. There are a good many seasonals, but their sites are almost all well kept. The owners couldn't be more helpful. They do a great job of mowing and upkeep. They were upgrading their power and replacing all the picnic tables while we were there. Wi-Fi is only available at the sites nearest the office, so consider that when selecting a space. Great little restaurant just up the mountain at Big Spring Park. We'll definitely stay here again when we're in the area.
We overnighted here in a pull-through (site A2). Peaceful and nicely laid out so that you have a good distance from your neighbor. The bathhouse was on the other side of the park and all we had nearby were two porta-potties, which were full of biting flies. I'd stay again for an overnight, but next time I'd make sure to be near the bathhouse.
One of our favorite parks. Mike, the new owner others have mentioned, is making great strides toward turning this into a fine campground. We stayed here a month and couldn't have been happier with the accommodations. It's a good quiet location well back off the road with easy access. We had no trouble maneuvering our 53' combination. Our space was long and well-packed and needed only minor leveling. Water, sewer and WiFi were all reliable. Mike's incredibly helpful in giving advice and solving problems. When we had a problem with our power service, Mike let us plug in to the next space, and he rushed to replace the faulty part as soon as the hardware store opened the next morning. There's a nice pool and rec shelter and the laundry room has clean, new-looking machines. Mike has lots of plans for the property, including a vineyard and amphitheater. There are a lot of permanent residents, nearly all having well-kept sites. We'll definitely stay here next time we're in the area. We stayed in space 44. The price listed reflects weekly rates.
Stayed here for four nights and mostly enjoyed it. Sites are nicely wooded and ours (103) was long and very wide, although the pad was a bit narrow. The staff was friendly and helpful. The bath house fixtures need repair and were dirty when we arrived, but the staff cleaned when we asked about it. This seems to be a hangout for local night-time partiers, but they were mostly on the other side of the park and it wasn't too noisy where we were. There is a problem with locals running their dogs off-leash, which made for some tense moments between one of our dogs and a pit bull. A night-time staff presence and enforcement of a few rules would help make this a first-rate park. Generally though, problems were fairly minor and this was a good place for this area. We'd probably stay here again.
We had a reasonably good stay here. As others have pointed out, there are a lot of permanents here and some sites are pretty run down, but the transient spaces are by themselves at the back of the property and are well kept. Good areas to walk pets. Spaces a little tight. Wi-Fi signal was almost never strong enough to connect and we couldn't manage to find a spot where we could get satellite coverage with our dish. Most of the transient spaces were empty and the owner was very nice about letting us park our tow vehicle in a second space. We chose this campground because it was one of the few in the area that said it provides water during the Winter months. That turns out to be only *mostly* true. The water is turned on, but you aren't allowed to hook up to the spigot unless the temperature is above freezing. We would stay here again.
Excellent park. The best feature is the huge expanse of well-manicured grass and trees alongside the river -- a great area for strolling or walking your dogs. An easy drive to Kerrville, which is a nice town. No on-site propane, but I understand it is available just up the road. As others have pointed out, if you want a quiet stay, be careful about choosing your site: stay away from the highway, the "Saloon", and the Pavilion. We stayed here for two weeks.
Nice park layout. Shade trees throughout. Sites are reasonably wide and my site was level. Roads are a little narrow and backing a long rig is tricky. WiFi was up and down, mostly up. Not the greatest-looking neighborhood, but it was quiet while we were here. On the downside, I had been promised an 80' site and the check-in clerk gave me a 50' one (luckily, the nice escort took me directly to a longer site without any fuss). The worst aspect was an overpowering smell of something dead in the store and laundry room. I would have rated the park lower because of this, but I assume it's a temporary problem. It makes me wonder about their sanitation, though. I sure wouldn't buy anything edible in the store. I might stay here again, but I would look around first.
Nice, quiet campground. Easy access from I-35, but well off the interstate so road noise isn't a problem. Level gravel sites: a little close together, but not too bad. Good dog walk area. Bathrooms are immaculate. WiFi is unreliable, but owner is getting a new antenna, which should help. We stayed here 5 nights and would stay again when in the area. Price shown includes GS discount.
There isn't a lot to choose from on I-20 in Louisiana, and this nice park is a welcome find. The staff is eager to help and set us up with a long, level space (#24) that was great for an overnight stay. Nice grassy areas for the dogs to walk. There was some early-morning noise from the construction on the near-by road, but it looks like that work will be completed reasonably soon. Spaces are a little narrow, but not too bad. We'll stay again. Price reflects Good Sam discount.
Nice campground with reasonably good access to the stores and restaurants in Fort Collins. Very little shade, but since we were there in the fall, it wasn't a problem. As another reviewer mentioned, the dumpsters tended to fill up pretty fast, even with the park only partially full. Nice breakfast wagon Wednesday-Sunday. Lots of things for kids to do. We would stay there again.
OK for an overnight, but I wouldn't want to stay for very long. Sites are paved and level with good grass between them. The owners are trying to start some trees, but they're quite small and the overall feeling is that you're in a parking lot. Nice areas to walk pets. Occasional jet noise from the nearby SLC airport and constant traffic noise if you're unlucky enough to draw a site on that side of the park (we were on the river side and it was quiet here). We'll probably look for another park if we are in the area again.
Nice park. We stayed here for a week. Quiet with good wide level sites. Thickly treed and thick grass throughout. Very helpful staff. Some odor from near by cattle yards, but not too bad. Right down the street from the Hagerman Fossil Beds Visitor Center. Would stay again.
An outstanding base camp to see Glacier National Park. We initially planned to stay here just 3 nights but we liked the camp so well that we extended to a full week. This is a family-owned campground and the staff is terrifically attentive and friendly. Very large sites, many paved or with cement pads for your wheels. Campground is thickly treed throughout. There's a B&B on-site and campers are welcome for breakfast at the restaurant. As several others have mentioned, they make great pies and desserts. Also, if you're on a gluten-free diet, Chef Sandy will whip up excellent gluten-free goodies -- ask her for her wonderful gluten-free shortbread cookies. We loved our stay here and will definitely come again.
This is a little bit of an odd review, because I actually only stayed at this KOA about 15 minutes, but the staff was so accommodating that I wanted to tell about my experience. I had made a reservation here as part of a big batch of reservations and in the confusion, I must have fouled up the dates I was asking for. I arrived dead-tired after a 13-hour drive on what I thought was the right day, only to find out that my reservation was actually for the NEXT day. They had no open sites that I could fit into and I assumed I was stuck without a campsite for the night. But instead of just shrugging as most would do, the clerk hopped on the phone and found me a great site at a competing campground just across the road. The next morning, I checked out of the other campground and went back to the KOA, paying for 5 nights of camping. But when I got to my assigned site, I found it was too short for my truck + trailer. I reported back to the office, but there weren't any other sites that would work. I felt like a heel, given the nice treatment I had gotten the night before, but I had to tell them that I thought I would be better off returning to the other campground. I offered to pay for one night's stay, hoping that they would refund the other 4 nights, but they insisted on refunding the entire 5 nights worth. I really appreciate the good treatment that I got at this campground and I'll certainly consider them the next time I'm in the area.
One of our all-time favorite parks. The camp is quiet, has beautiful thickly-treed sites, and is just a short stroll to grocery and camping stores, a nice restaurant, the NPS visitor center, and an outstanding view of the Tetons. Very pet-friendly. No Wi-Fi at the camp, but Verizon voice and 3G service was mostly reliable. Too many trees for satellite service at our site, but I'll take trees over TV anytime. As someone else mentioned, the little pieces of pine needles do tend to get tracked in, but a little extra vacuuming took care of that. We'll definitely stay here again. In fact, we like this campground so well, we may make a special trip.
It is a nice park, which is very clean and well maintained. It is fairly convenient to West Yellowstone and to the park entrance, yet far enough out to be quiet. Sites are a little small, but the sites around us had two-person wooden swings which is a nice touch. There are good laundry facilities and a better-than-average camp store. About the only downside is that the dog-walk area is very small and not conveniently located unless you're staying near the entrance. We would stay here again. The price reflects KOA discount.
The dog play area is a nice thought, but otherwise, I was disappointed. My reservation was fouled up, the grass needed mowing, the trash from the last camper had not been policed up, and the picnic table was so weatherbeaten as to be unusable. As someone else pointed out, the sewer connection is way out of place: it took 3 sections of hose to hook up. Ridiculously overpriced. Believe it or not, the price listed includes a KOA discount. I wouldn't stay here again.
This is a very nice park. Full of trees and on a pretty lake. The sites are fairly wide and level. The staff is extremely courteous: they even changed their mowing schedule to fit our odd rest needs. Like other reviewers said, there are mosquitos, but was not a big problem if you use your repellent. We'll definitely stay here again if we're in the area. The price reflects KOA discount.
Nice staff. The campground just had a few campers and it was nice and quiet except for a couple of times that trains went by on the nearby tracks. Good dog walk area. We were in site 15, and that site and the ones around it were well-graveled and level. A little narrower than I like, but not too bad. I did not try to set up our dish, but there was only one tree in our area and I'm pretty sure I would have had a good line of sight. Good WiFi service. The price reflects KOA discount.
We visited on Memorial Day weekend and it was very crowded. The staff was cordial and tried to be helpful, but they were obviously overwhelmed by the number of customers. The campground is a hard drive from the interstate and I wouldn't recommend it for an overnight. Our site was supposed to be a pull-through, but we were actually just parked along the side of a road with our end slide hanging out over a side road about which the staff said, in a hopeful way, "No one is supposed to use that road." We were parked directly across from a pavilion where there were loud campground-sponsored games until 10:00 pm one night. Another nasty surprise: there is no cell-phone service unless you go to a phone booth at the office and use a cell booster. Forget about using your laptop's air card. Dogs are allowed, but the leash rules were not enforced and the only dog-walk area was badly in need of mowing. Although the town of Windsor is near by, it has no services that we could find. The nearest city is Binghamton, about 25 miles away. This campground would probably be OK if you lived in the area wanted to get away for the weekend with small kids. But if you are adults looking for a peaceful getaway, look elsewhere. I'd give them a lower rating, but I'm cutting them some slack because it was such a busy holiday weekend.
Stayed here 4 nights a had a great time. The owners appear to work around the clock to keep the campground immaculate. The grass is well-trimmed, the roads (dirt) scraped and watered to keep the dust down. We stayed on "the hill" (site O-11) and that put us right at the side of the huge dog-walk area. We didn't have any trouble with Verizon cell service or 3G internet service. The owners are great and would do anything to help you. The campground is close to several towns with grocery stores and services, and it's about 30 minutes from the Rhinecliff Amtrak station that gets you straight to NYC Penn Station. No complaints at all and we'll definitely stay again when we're in the area.
This is a clean, pretty campground with a nice little stream running through it. The sites are wide enough to be comfortable and there are good areas to walk dogs. The staff was friendly and helpful. It's a fairly long, winding drive from the interstate, but the camp is worth it. I'll definitely stay here again when I'm in the area.
A nice little park that's good for an overnight stop. It's a long way from the interstate via a winding, hilly road. Sites are OK, but narrow enough to make pulling in and out a little tricky. Verizon cell service is unreliable (but a local told me that other services work fine). The staff is very friendly and helpful. This was our second stay at this site. The first time we stayed here, it was the middle of the week before Memorial Day and it wasn't crowded at all. The second time was the weekend after Memorial Day and it was jammed and a little noisy. I would stay here again for an overnight stop, but probably only on a week night.
A nice, quiet place and not at all crowded when we were here. The campground staff was friendly and unobtrusive. There was plenty of room to walk our dogs. The manager selected our site (431A) so that we could get in easily, but it was situated in a way that made it difficult to back in without tearing up the landscaping across the access road. The site was set up backwards. We felt the price was too high, but we didn't make use of the Park's entertainment facilities and might have felt differently if we had.
