What a dive. Sites are small & difficult to manuever into. There was a dog running loose and messing in my yard. The dog run was of average size but clearly no one understood the "pick up after your own dog" theory. There were several seasonals and many were pretty trashy. I wouldn't stay here again despite the discount coupons.
This is a pretty nice park, not really set up for the full-timer though.There is no mail delivery, the laundry room is very small and the sites are pretty narrow (seasonals are parking in unused sites). I'd come back but I wouldn't stay long.
This is a nice campground. There are 2 sections, an older area with lots of trees and a new section. The new section accommodates larger rigs & might be nice when the foliage matures. Right now it feels like being parked at a drive in movie. The newer section is "supposed" to have the latest features: cable (23 channels) and wi-fi (not working in all sites). The sites are pretty wide. There are plenty of rules and the unfriendly volunteer staff are eager to enforce them. The paid staff in the office are very friendly and helpful. The park is patrolled overnight by rangers. Weekends are pretty busy with little ones running all over the roads. Week days are best for those that prefer quiet. However, the park is near Miramar Marine Air Base and helicopters would fly back and forth over the park well into the night. The lakes are pretty and are full of fish. All in all, we enjoyed this park and would return.
Thank goodness for this website or I would have never known about this park. It is a great place to stay and only minutes for New Orleans and the French Quarter. The campground is very secure and sites are large and shady. There are plenty of activities such as water park, hiking and fishing. Wish we could have stayed longer! There is a free ferry that crosses the river to New Orleans and parking is only $5.00 However it is confusing to get to and even more confusing to leave, especially at night. We would definitely come back here and recommend it as the safest spot near New Orleans. Thanks RV Reviews!
This was a pretty nice park. The sites were wide and long enough for toad. Plus there was additional tow parking for larger RVs. The staff was friendly and helpful. The rec room was pretty nice and they had nightly activities; bingo, ice cream socials, etc. It's close to a casino which offers free breakfasts to seniors on Wednesdays. Too bad I'm not a senior! And a free shuttle. The biggest downside was the noise. Train noise. ALL NIGHT LONG! The park is located on I-35 just one mile north of the Texas border. If you like Chinese food, we found the best buffet ever a few miles north in Ardmore. We would return to this park.
We chose this park because the managment was very friendly on the phone and it is the only RV park near Omaha that is open year round. But that doesn't mean you'll get year round service. The sites seem wide in the winter mainly because there aren't that many people there. Once it fills up it looks like life will get cramped. The hook ups are difficult to find and are often shared between 4 sites... so bring extention cords and extra hoses (water & sewer). It took the managment 2 weeks to clear the interior roadways of snow. The exit, a seriously sloped experience, wasn't cleared for a month. I don't know how some of the newcomers came and went during that time. One fellow with a large Ford truck & 5th wheel plowed his way through a couple of sites to find parking. While impressive, it was a shame that more wasn't done to keep the roads clear. And no, it only snowed that one day & was clear the rest of the month. Bathrooms were closed. The rec room with modem, exercise equipment and laundry stayed open 24 hours. However, the locals smoke in there and the washers were rarely functioning. Up side, there is a marina attached on the Missouri River and the bald eagles were impressive. We probably wouldn't return to this park located 35 miles north of Omaha.
This was a wonderful find! After having an awful experience with a Michigan S.P., this Alabama S.P. was welcoming, inexpensive, friendly and down right gorgeous. The sites are large with some tucked away amongst the trees for smaller rigs and tents. There is fishing nearby and the bird watching was phenominal. The only down side: ANTS! If you're not careful they will invade your buggy! We would definitely return to this little gem located just 10 miles south of Birmingham.
This isn't a bad park. The pull through sites are uneven (plus ours was full of doggy-do), the pool & rec area was run down and the store didn't amount to much. There is a modem hookup at the office for a fee but the smoke might be too much for the non-smoking types. After having a blown tire repaired we opted for a shaded back in site to unwind for a couple of day. The park is about 30 miles from Nashville and 10 miles from a great state park, Cedars on Lebanon State Park. The staff was friendly and helpful, but the park could use some updating. Plus there are a number of seasonal residents that have let their sites go to seed. We'd return in a pinch.
We didn't actually end up staying here. We spoke with the owners before our arrival, found them pleasant and made reservations for a week's stay. It is supposedly big rig friendly. You may actually be able to get into these tight sites but be prepared to set your chairs out on your neighbors sewer hose. We decided that we didn't want to spent the week cramped up and started to leave. The owner came out and insisted the sites were big enough. On our way out, the turn around was so narrow we scrapped along the trees. Wouldn't recommend this park to any buggy over 32 feet.
This is a new park with wide sites, some with lake front views. For the most part, I really like this park, however my check-in experience has left a foul taste in my mouth. Michigan State parks do not seem to be out-of-state friendly. And it's a shame too. We called early the morning of check-in to see if we needed reservations. We were told that there were plenty of spots available and no reservation was required. We arrived during the ranger lunch period, there was no site availability map so we picked a nice FU site with a view of Lake Erie. We set up camp including setting out the party lights on the awning. We went back to the ranger station only to find another couple being told that they'd have to move because the park was booked up (you couldn't tell this by looking). This couple had also been told that no reservations were needed. The ranger was unhelpful and pointed us to the corporate office. We drove there and were told that they showed that there were plenty of sites. Finally after quite some time, we were given a partial hookup site while the other couple decided to leave. This site was nice, closer to the lake, but everyone and their brother cross through your site to get to it. We were charged a reasonable rate for the site but then other fees were tacked on. $8/night out-of-state fee for the toad. Fine. THEN we were charged an additional $8/NIGHT vehicle fee for the RV! Shouldn't this have been included in the camping fees? We could have camped at a nearby KOA for less... and that's saying something. After all this was said and done... the site we were in originally was never occupied! The ranger was unpleasant, the prices for out-of-staters were outrageous and we will never go to another Michigan State park.
This is our 2nd visit to this membership park, (Coast to Coast) and we really enjoy it. The first time through was in early spring and while the park is open year round some of the sites and bathrooms didn't have water. But it was quiet! This last time, was great. Wide sites, plenty of grass and shade. A great little pond to fish in and seasonal activities. It was a great place to unwind for a few days. I'm not sure about price. As a Coast-to-Coast member it was $8 a day and we could extend beyond the 7 day max. We would definitely return.
