I can’t believe no one has reviewed this campground since last year! We were a little hesitant to stop here for just that reason but after talking to the manager on the phone, his friendliness put us at ease. And a very nice campground it is. They honor camping club memberships so our rate is a Passport America rate. Long level paved lots with drainage slopes at each end (pull-throughs). Had absolutely no trouble with our 40' fiver. Back-ins were also long with the slopes at the end. Restroom are dated but very clean; laundry also very clean. Grass is mowed. Not much in the line of shade, courtesy of Katrina, but the trees are trying to make a comeback. Close to shopping and a great choice of restaurants. Yes, there is considerable noise from the interstate but when you’re inside with the AC running, you barely hear it and it quieted down at night. There is also an airport and train tracks nearby but few trains and fewer planes. We did joke that we felt we were in the middle of “trains, planes, and automobiles”, though. Great cable and Wi-Fi. Easy drive to the Gulf where you’ll find plenty of places to park to enjoy the beach. No pool, but who needs one when the Gulf is about 4 miles away? No picnic tables or grills or playground; just a clean, well-kept campground with easy access to I-10, food, entertainment. Would definitely recommend this to others.
Very nice little RV park right off I-10, but with no noise from there. I called ahead of time to question the supposedly loud music from the truck stop and they said they no longer have that problem. Sites are easy in/easy out, level, and gravel. Great Wi-Fi - great Cable. Laundry is a tad on the expensive side ($2 per wash and $2 to dry), but the laundry is clean with three washers and dryers and a small folding table. Camp hosts are very friendly and helpful. We would definitely recommend this park to travelers. Oh, and if you stop, leave some time to visit Rayne, Frog City Capital of the World!!
Easy off-on I-10. Perfect for an overnight stop. Yes, the sites are out in a field and there's no shade. Yes, there are few amenities (bathrooms and laundry only) but you can walk to the Burger King/Gulf and BP gas stations. 30-amp electric wasn't consistent on Lot 5 so we just hooked into Lot 6. Sites are side-by-side so you're close on the facilities side but have a decent "yard" on the door side plus a beautiful big field to play with the dogs or do your morning walk. We would have no problem staying here for a night or even two between stops.
Stayed here while visiting niece with my brother and his wife. We were in a fiver and didn't notice the highway noise too much but he was in a pop-up and the noise was quite overpowering. Nice easy pull-thrus with good facilities. Laundry was expensive. People were nice. If we stop here again, we'll opt for a lot further from the highway.
Neat little campground right off I-95, but without the noise that goes with an interstate. Lots are a bit narrow but long enough for a 40' fiver and truck. Only got about 6 channels on antenna but we were away a lot of the time so it didn't matter. Most lots were tree-free so a satellite dish would work well. Only 1 or 2 lights at night so you could certainly see a lot of stars! Very friendly owners. Laundry has 2 washers and 2 dryers. Restroom are clean but a bit dated. We recommend this campground and would stay here again.
We Stopped here for a week...and ended up staying 4 months!! It is a very nice campground with semi-wide long lots. Drainage can be a bit iffey after a rain storm for the lots in the K row. There is a rail line about 1/2 mile from the campground, but they don't run at night. You can get fresh crabs from the vendor at the gas station on your way in and drive to Wadmalaw Island and get shrimp fresh from the boat. On word of caution, the entrance road and road to the campsites are full of potholes, so drive slowly. The park is within 15 minutes of downtown Charleston, where there is so much to see and do (that's why we were there so long)! Don't miss the aquarium or the Fort Sumter museum. Shop at the Charleston Market; take a horse-drawn carriage ride around town and learn the story of this historical city. Take advantage of the free trolley that will take you almost anywhere in town. Many geocaches in the area for those that partake of this activity. We would definitely recommend this campground and we will stay here the next time we come to Charleston.
What a gem of a campground...especially after the previous campground in Selma. It was so peaceful and quiet. It was a bit far from where we were visiting, but it was an easy drive into town. There were easy pull through lots (although we did get bogged down a bit in the loose sand that seemed to be on our lot only); small playground for kids and a nice woodsy fenced-in dog run. The owner is very proud of the campground he built and rightfully so. We will definitely stop here when in the area again.
Nice park with long, level sites but sewer is uphill from RV. We solved that problem by using the dump station on the way out. We also lucked out because the Park Ranger told us of the balloon festival in town this weekend. Had a great time there. It's an annual event so if you're in the area next year this around the second week in September, make sure you visit. Creston is a typical midwestern town with friendly people and little traffic. Did some geocaching. We would stay here again if in the area, for sure, but would pick a different lot. Oh, they also have "buddy lots" where 4 campers form a square around a central area. Really neat and sort of private for a small group.
What a hidden gem! Quiet, dark, peaceful. We were the only ones there for two nights and had the whole place to ourselves. Town is about two miles away. Several geocaches in the area. Walked over to watch soccer practice one night. Self-pay; cash only. Very enjoyable stay and would definitely stay here in the future and would recommend it to others.
All I can recommend is that you stock up on necessities before pulling in here because the nearest shopping of any mention is over 20 miles away! There is a very small store in Clinton but mostly carries mini mart type stuff. Large wide/long pull through lots plus long back-ins. We didn't see any lots right on the lake but some of the back-ins were about 150' from it. Quiet at night even though it was fairly busy the weekend we were there. Dark skies which are great for star gazing. Verizon hotspot and phone worked fine and, although they don't have cable, we got about 20 to 25 channels on the antenna. Some geocaches in the area. Good-sized lake with several boat ramps. Rate is the Senior rate.
This is a nice little campground in a quiet little Midwest town with long pull-thru spaces. Even though there is no laundry at the campground, there's a nice one in town about a mile away. Wifi is via the owner's connection and really isn't too good; in fact, we couldn't even get on it but my Verizon hotspot (and phone) worked just fine. About 8 channels on antenna. Rate is Passport America rate and is good for as long as you want to stay (within reason). Owners are very nice and helpful; grocery store and Dollar General across the road; Sassy Subs, Sonic, and hospital all within a mile. Big Brutus (world's largest electric shovel) about 20 minutes away. Worth going to see, for sure. About 6 geocaches within 5 miles. We would definitely stay here the next time we come through the area and recommend it for others that don't need a lot of bells and whistles.
Very nice campground. No pool and no playground, but absolutely perfect for our needs of a quiet, clean, maintained, safe campground about 8 minutes from the interstate. Grass is mowed; lots are level; w-e-s worked fine. About 15 channels on antenna; great free Wi-Fi. The pull-throughs are a little narrow, but long enough for truck and 40' fiver or large MH and toad. Several geocaches within 5 miles. Neat older town with much history. We stayed for a week to avoid the hassle of finding a place over the holiday weekend. PA rate for the full time. Would definitely recommend this park to others.
Nice state park. Lots are level cement pads about 30' apart and there is room to park your tow vehicle on the side. Picnic tables and fire pits along with a lantern pole. If you want a pull-through on the lake, I would recommend the Cedar Point area. 30/50 amp electric and water. However, there appears to be a lot of full-timers here so getting here early in the week would give you the best chance of getting a lot in this part. We got here Thursday and there were 3 sites open. By late Friday morning, they were full. Second choice would be the Sandy Beach area. I don't remember if there is lake view there or not but there are pull throughs and sewer hookup. As a previous poster said, they don't clean the sites after someone has left. There are cig butts and can tabs all over the place, plus the firepit is full. Didn't bother us because it was too windy to have a fire anyway. Restrooms are up the hill: not very close to the campsites. Nearest shopping is in Elk City, about 12 miles away. There are 3 or 4 geocaches nearby including one at the office that you can grab while your significant other checks in! Also a small herd of bison that come to visit at the office in the afternoon. We would stay here again if passing through the area.
We've stayed here before so we knew what to expect. No laundry; no restrooms. Just an inexpensive (Passport America), safe place to spend a night or several nights. There is highway noise from I-40 and an occasional plane taking off from the nearby airport but in the summer you won't hear them with the a/c running and even so, it's not all that loud. The new owner appears to be sprucing the campground up a bit. We'll see just how spruce he makes it. Could use a new sign outside, that's for sure. Lots of geocaches within 5 miles plus a short drive north to Alibates Flint Quarry and Lake Meredith or a short drive south to Palo Duro Canyon. It is the 2nd largest canyon in the U.S. Nothing fancy but it serves our purpose well. For an inexpensive, safe place to stay I'd recommend this to others.
Right past the truck stops at Exit 333 in Tucumcari. Not much to look at but it offers the basics. Like all desert campgrounds in the southwest, it's dirt/gravel but sites are long and level side-to-side. We seem to be on a slope front to back but levelers handle that. Great Wi-Fi. Great cable. You do get noise from both very busy truck stops but with the a/c going, you don't really hear anything. Just a short jaunt into town where you can do basic shopping (no Wal-Mart). Very good and reasonably priced meals at the Rockin' Y Restaurant. Recommend that place. Several geocaches within 5 miles. We'd stay here in the future and would recommend it to others.
Close to the interstate for convenience but no road noise. Long, level sites so no need to unhook your tow vehicle. A lot of geocache sites within 5 miles. Camping World within 3 miles. United RV 2 miles (some parts there). Petroglyph National Park 6 miles. I wish we could have stayed longer to explore Albuquerque. We would stay here again if in the area, and would recommend it to others.
This is a Good Sam park. Stopped here on our trip to the East Coast from Las Vegas. Just off the interstate but we didn't notice any noise from there. Lots are long and wide enough that one has some privacy and wouldn't have to unhook, but since we wanted to visit the crater (discount coupons for that at the office) and do some geocaching, we did. You also get a small discount for fuel at the adjacent station if you're staying at the park. We went into Winslow to eat but missed the Route 66 display. Drove to Two Guns for a bit of history about the Apache/Navajo tribes and the abandoned town's history when Route 66 was the main route. Very nice desert RV park and would recommend it to anyone.
Wasn't too sure about this one when we pulled in, but we got Lot 3 which was a little narrow but level and long enough for our 40' fiver. Close enough to Death Valley for a nice side trip; the donkeys that come into the park aren't really wild anymore but you can see small herds of wild ones along the highway. Great Wi-Fi; about 16 channels on cable. We would stop here again if passing through.
First off, as a previous poster said, watch the bumps coming off I-40 east from where you exit up to the park! Petro is a very busy truck stop with scales but the only noise you hear when you're outside your RV up at the campground is the low rumble of trucks on the interstate. Food at the Iron Skillet is good and plentiful. The park itself is past the truck stop and is bump-free, very well kept, easy pull through's, very friendly, helpful staff, and just a lovely place to be. Wi-Fi works very well (although only one computer on at a time from a campsite) and Verizon phone has a good signal. Not a lot of cable channels (10 or so) but the ones they have are good. Didn't try our antenna. There are 5 geocaches within 3 miles of the campground (3 of them are within 1 mile) and many more in Kingman. We would definitely recommend this park to anyone who wants to be away from the city but still visit Kingman and historic Route 66.
Nicest campground in the area. And lots of geocaching within walking distance. Gravel level campground with nice grass islands interspersed. Paved level sites. Young trees at each lot which will give shade as they grow taller. Friendly staff. Although right on Highway 95, we didn't notice any road noise. Family Dollar, Dollar General, grocery store within walking distance. Expensive gas at the Shell station. This town has tons of history so be sure to visit the Mineral County Museum, open Tues-Saturday, free. We will definitely stay here the next time we're in the area and will tell fellow travelers about it.
Very nice campground in the very nice, historic capital of Nevada. Plenty of cable channels; they have Wi-Fi but it isn't good at the south side of the park. Good Verizon service; I used my phone's hotspot with no trouble. Very friendly staff. Within walking distance to KFC, Denny's, Wendy's and other fast food restaurants and there are even nicer restaurants just a couple of miles downtown. Large hardware/sporting goods store across the street (like a Tractor Supply) which was convenient for us when our water hose burst. Only about 20 minutes from Virginia City for a day trip. Lots of geocaches in town. We would definitely stay here again.
This is a very nice COE park BUT the roads in (Avenue 26 and some of Road 29) are horrible!! We will not stay here again only because of them. Once you get onto park property, the roads to and in the campgrounds are good. Now, about the campground...we had an electric/water site only but there are about 5 sites with sewer. We were right across from the bathhouses so there was no problem there. Bathhouses are clean; one shower per side (male/female). No Verizon service until you get back to Chowchilla. Apparently, AT&T is the phone service of choice in this area. There is wifi service at the check-in area. Each campsite has a fire ring and picnic table and many have roofs over the tables. Although most sites have trees, we didn't see any what you would call "shady sites" as we drove through. As I said, we liked this COE park a lot but will not visit again until roads are improved, especially Avenue 26. BTW, Save Mart right at Exit 170, is a lovely grocery store and had delicious mussels!!
Very nice little park between CA-99 and the railroad. The highway noise fades into the background and you only hear a train every once in awhile. No problem with any of the hookups; lots of channels on the antenna; easy off and on 99. Lots are a little narrow but we had an end lot so didn't feel crowded. Lots of vineyards in the area (Selma, just up the road, is the raisin capital of the world). Nice campground; nice area. We'd stay here again if in the area.
Passport America rate. Nice campground with nice wide, long spots out in the desert, about 19 miles from Casa Grande. Yes, the feed lots are about 2 miles up the road, but we had no problem with any smells from them. I guess if the wind is blowing the wrong way, one might smell them, but since most winds go west to east, that shouldn't happen often. We don't need a pool or a playground so this campground fit us just fine. Didn't use the laundry but checked it out and it's immaculate. People (campers and workers) were very friendly. Casa Grande is a nice sized city with everything you could want. I wish we had gone to Maricopa but we weren't in the area long enough. We do intend on coming back on our trip east.
We stayed here last February through May and stand by our comments that the laundry and restrooms are spotless and the pool was shiny clean. Haven't eaten at the restaurant yet this time, but the prime rib was delicious during our last stay. The lots are staggered which makes for fairly easy entrance and exit. BUT the Wi-Fi is NOT high speed (very slow and drops you every so often). The lots are only about 50' long which is great if you have a smaller camper but if you have anything longer than 35', you have to park sideways in front of your camper and that's not easy when everyone else is parked the same. Hard to sandwich yourself in between others. The lots are just wide enough for an RV with slides on either side and a picnic table. Space between bottom of steps and table: about 2 feet. I guess I'm just a bit spoiled with the long, wide lots in the campgrounds we've stayed in on the way here.
Very nice campground for a short-term stay, but the seasonal sites look close together. Great cable TV and great Wi-Fi. Laundry is dated and is also used as a storage room. Bathrooms are clean but also a bit dated. Lovely lake with free fishing and a nice pool. Very friendly, helpful owners. I bet this place is really busy in the summer, but in November it was nice and peaceful. If you're coming from the north though, be advised that Puckett Road is a gravel road. We missed it, thinking it was a driveway. We took the next paved left and then left on Sportsman Lake Road. You can also turn left on 1st Union Road (paved road before Puckett Road) then right on Sportsman Lake Road. We would definitely stay here again if in the area.
Another nice COE park. We were in Lot 9 which was a nice long pull through near restroom and dumpster. Just about Lakeview if there are no campers in the lower part of the loop. The water level is low but not as bad as some of the other lakes in the area. Several COE campgrounds on Waco Lake; this one had available sites. I think the parks are very popular on weekends. Lots of boat ramps. Had Verizon phone and could get on the internet using my Verizon hotspot. Waco is a really neat city although their main highways don't "flow" smoothly into each other. If you come during the week, say HI to very nice gatekeepers at Reynolds. We recommend this park and will stay here again if we pass through Waco again.
A Corps of Engineers campground so we were able to use our Senior Access and pay half the rate. We had Lot TO18 which was great! Nice shady trees and right across from the very clean restrooms. There's not much left to this lake either due to the extreme drought and heat in this part of Texas. Had there been a lake, we would have had a nice lake view but as it was, we had a little creek view. Quiet. Deer. About 9 miles from the small town of Coleman. No Verizon reception at all but they said AT&T works great. We would stay here again.
Nice park. Unfortunately, the lake is no more. The drought and heat has really played havoc with the water this year but, unless you're a farmer or rancher, you don't notice it as much 'til you get to a campground where the lake has dried up. So sad. Texas charges $3 a day per person whether you're camping or not and that is reflected in the rate I posted. We had a nice long level pull-through which was easy in-easy out. Part of the Texas Longhorn herd is here and they also have a bison herd but we didn't see them. We did see some cute little ground squirrels at our site (or kitten was fascinated by them) and prairie dogs across from the cattle pasture. The park is close to town on good roads. San Angelo, the city, has a lot to offer in the line of shopping, restaurants, museums, parks, etc. but since we were there only 2 nights, didn't really get a chance to see any attractions. We would definitely stay here again and recommend it to others, if you don't need the lake.
Okay, so it doesn't have a pool or mini golf or store. BUT where else are you going to get 50 amp, water, sewer, cable TV and Wi-Fi for $18?? ($16 for 30 amp). Sites are larger than the other campgrounds in the area. Stone and dirt and sand but no dust, even on the very windy days we were here. Some semi-permanents but no junk lying around. Close to I-10 for easy off and on but you do have some noise from there. Within 1/2 mile of 3 gas stations; next door to golf course. We stayed here in December on our way west and said "never again." Decided to give it a try on our way east and I'll now say, "Of course we'll stay here again!" Since December, I've learned that western desert campgrounds are much different than eastern forest campgrounds. Ft. Stockton is a neat, historic Texas town. Super Wal-Mart to be completed in September; Lowe's Foods is expanding. Lots of geocaches; music in the town square; lots of history. Good place to stay for a few days of exploring.
We really like this campground. Rate shown is Passport America rate. Long, level sites of reasonable width separated by a planting area with native cactus and other plants. There are trees at some of the sites, but they aren't really big enough to offer a lot of shade. Nice walking path through a bit of desert for humans and pets. Convenient off I-10 and near enough to Ft. Davis for a day trip. Gas station on premises. We will be stopping here again and would recommend it to others.
I'm not sure if this park is officially open or closed. The restaurant is closed so there is no restroom or shower or laundry. There is a convenient gas station/mini mart across the street. There is no one on-site at the campground so payment is by the honor system at a box at the rear of the restaurant. We had no trouble with water, electric or sewer. No cable. Nothing but a safe place to park for the night. We will stop here again on our way west...if they're still in operation.
I love traveling in the southwest at this time of year because all the campgrounds have lots of room, and Hacienda was no exception. They even have a summer rate which helped. We had an end-of-row pull thru site that was nice and wide with a nice picnic area. The interior sites are shared utilities with bushes separating each pair of sites. The dog run is outstanding! It appears to be several hundred yards long and the large dogs must love being off leash and just being able to run from one end to the other. A nice touch is trash pickup at your site so you don't have to go hunting for dumpsters. In the summer with the a/c going, you don't hear much from I-10 that passes right by the campground. One word of caution, though. Mapquest directions said the turn onto Stern Street was about 3/10 of a mile from where you exit I-10. Actually, it's right at the end of the tree-divided highway. We missed it and had to make a U-turn further up the road. Nice campground; didn't use any of the facilities so can't report on them.
Second time we've stayed here and we still like it better than the other parks nearby. At this time of year, it's not crowded so I can't address the electric problem posted by an earlier reviewer. We were here in December, too, and had no problem with the electric then either. Indoor pool and hot tub. Large easy-in, easy-out sites. Immaculate laundry ($1.00 per washer/dryer) and restrooms. Lots of good cable channels. Trains and interstate nearby but you don't really hear them. Plenty to see in the area and lots of geocaching. WalMart, K-Mart, Peppers, pharmacies, auto stores, etc. within 5 minutes' drive. Only thing missing is an RV repair/supply store. Great museum! And within easy drive to Rockhound and City of Rocks State Parks plus other sightseeing places. The only negative I can find about Little Vineyard is their Wi-Fi is not dependable. Oftentimes, it has dropped me in the middle of some important work. Maybe a few more repeaters or whatever they're called, especially along the back, would be helpful. We will definitely stay here again on our way west next year and recommend this park to others.
This is not your usual KOA. Has no crowded sites; all gravel sites are private with oleander bushes between them. Nice pool; did not use the laundry or restrooms. WiFi costs $2.95 a day from a private vendor; no cable TV but there are lots of stations from an antenna. Desert for walking your pets. Lots of quail and their babies running around. Although about 1/4 mile from I-10, you don't get any highway noise and just barely hear the rumble of trains in the distance. We will stay here again on our way west, and would recommend this to others.
Stopped here on our way from Needles to Tucson. Came in from the north so had no problem at the road turn with our 40' fiver. No problem at the entrance to the park either. Quick check in, very large pull through lot: ON1. One small problem is that it's next to the "burning pile" and they were burning trash when we got here. A bit on the smoky side but within 1/2 hour they were done and the smoke was gone. There's not much around but Quartzsite is about 25 miles away. We would definitely stay here again.
An inexpensive, basic RV park. Very long, wide lots. Good electric and water. Smoky casino, not Smoky restaurant (very large helpings!) across the street. Verizon at 5 bars. Friendly people in the office/store. We would recommend this to anyone that doesn't need all the amenities like pool, clubhouse, entertainment, etc.
The previous reviews are spot on. Very long, easy access pull through sites, great sunsets, about 5 good channels on the antenna. Warning: Beware of the water pressure at 80 lbs! They warn you about that when you sign in. We could only stay for one night but would have no trouble staying longer. We would recommend this to others.
Nice, quiet park with long, easy access pull-thrus. Lots of dark skies to see all the stars...and the Geminid meteor shower! As has been noted, rate is for Passport America, minimum of 3 days. Put your money in the envelope, put the envelope in the slot in the laundry. All utilities worked as expected. Only semi downside is the distance from Canton...about 10 miles. We would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to others.
Convenient one-night stop along I-20 with a fuel station right across the street. Propane on-site. You have to pay for internet access but my Verizon card worked fine. Friendly people in the office. The alligator in the office (stuffed) is from their own pond. Easy access, level pull-thru sites. Due to proximity to interstate, there is highway noise but with the windows closed in the winter, you don't hear it. We would stay here again and would recommend it to others.
Can't add to the report by the previous reviewer except to agree with all he said...except we didn't have any cicada problem. Great playground for the kids and a pool for in-season use. We would stay here again with no problem and would recommend it to others.
For someone traveling I-20 or wanting to visit Meridian, this is a great base park that honors Good Sam and Passport America. Easy access to level concrete pull-thru pads long enough for the longest RV with gravel drives and decent space between lots. Great Wi-Fi and lots of cable channels. The office is only open for a few hours in the a.m. and again from 4 to 6 p.m. They do turn the water off if freezing temperatures are forecaster but this was no problem for us as we carry a couple of jugs of water for drinking and flushing. If you’re using Passport America, be advised they only accept cash. There are no amenities like clubhouse or store, pool or games, but it’s not advertised as a destination park. They do sell propane on site The only downside (but it didn’t bother us in the winter with the windows closed) are the trains that tend to sound like they’re coming right through the park. Only once or twice a day so it’s not bad. Oh, and the jets taking off from the Naval Air station can make a bit of noise. And even with those two noisemakers, it’s still a great park. . We will definitely stop here when in the area and recommend it to others.
Nice park behind the flea market. After Thanksgiving, they set up Santa's Land at the park with thousands of lights and beautiful displays with air balloon figures. We walked through and it was really neat. Great water pressure; electric good; cable. As has been said, you pay for wifi so I used my Verizon card and had no problems with that. We stayed an extra night because of the attached flea market but they don't really get busy 'til Saturday. There's a good produce market about a mile down the road where you can get good produce. Couldn't find a true farmer's market with meats/cheeses/poultry/seafood, etc. around though. We would stay here again when in this area and would recommend this to others.
Rate reflects Passport America rate. Stopped here for 2 nights on our way south. Laundry is clean; ditto for restrooms. Seems like there would be plenty of activities in season. Horseback rides through the battlefield would be tops. You can even bring your own horse as they have stalls available. A little difficult to get level on our lot, and it didn't appear that others around us were very level either. A little grading would help this. Very well stocked store, especially for so late in the season. We would recommend this to others.
One of the few campgrounds in eastern PA that are open year round. Friendly, helpful owner; beautiful walking trails; peaceful. Perfect as a base to visit relatives and take a nice train ride into Philly for the day ($1.00 for seniors). Also within minutes to the Q-Mart, a large flea market with many inside and outside stands…and delicious Aunty Anne’s soft pretzels. Playground for kids; pool was closed for the season. Upper bathrooms were closed but lower ones, while a bit dated, are clean. Store doesn’t have much of anything but it could have been due to the time of year. No Laundromat but there is one next to the post office in Trumbauersville, a 5-min. drive away. We’ve stayed here before; will stay here again and would recommend this to others.
Just stopped for 2 nights on our way south. Main campground (and all facilities) closed on 10/15 but 6 long pull-through sites were available for short stays until 10/31. Absolutely beautiful campground with a lot of nice seasonal setups. Owner very friendly and helpful. Beautiful views and convenient to I-88. We would recommend this to anyone passing through the area.
If Sandusky and/or Cedar Point Amusement Park is your destination, this is a great campground. Yes, you are right next to Route 2 and you do hear the traffic but after awhile, we didn't even notice it. And, during the hot weather, your A/C will cover any highway noises. Our pull-through site was long enough for our 40' fiver and truck and we had no problem with the location of the trees at our site. However, due to the location of a tree at the exit end of our lane, I could foresee a problem for people pulling a fifth wheel so I mentioned it to the managers and the owner. Thank you, Owner, for listening. The back-in sites along the edge of the field look to be a bit shorter and most of them are hard to back into due to the many trees but those are the sites where the cable is, and those are the sites where everyone went and no one hit a single tree backing in. We were here over the Labor Day weekend and it does appear to be tent city but everyone was having a good time and that’s what camping is all about. There is a huge playground for the kids and it was well used over the holiday weekend. The pools were sparkling and probably could get crowded on holidays. The Wi-Fi is not free and at times ran slower than my Verizon card did. They do not have picnic tables but each campsite has a fire ring for those social “around-the-campfire” sessions. The proximity to Cedar Point makes this a great campground for the vacationing crowd who don’t want to park in the amusement park. We stayed here via Passport America and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this to others.
The manager first put us in a nice shaded spot, but we realized that there was the possibility of another camper being parked directly behind us if the park got crowded so we asked for an open site in the P section: the area in the middle of about 3 mowed acres. Great WiFi here; great antenna reception here; overall a good area if it's not the middle of summer since there's no shade. Miniature golf and driving range costs to the camper. Close to Nappanee, Elkhart and Shipshewana. We would recommend this park to others.
We were a little worried when we made reservations for this campground because there was only one other review, although it was a good review. Well, we worried for naught. This is a very well-kept campground right on the St. Joseph River under the Village of Berrien Springs auspices. Very friendly staff, immaculate grounds, small playground for kids, good electric/water and sewer. Only downside is there is no cable TV but we got the national stations we wanted via antenna. We were only booked for a week but liked the campground and area so much we logged in for a second week but to do this, we had to move to another site because the one we were on was already reserved. Moved to Site 6, water and electric only, at the edge of the woods: was quiet, much larger. There is but one negative I can find about this park: there is only one bathhouse for the whole park (also immaculate) which could make for a pretty fast morning run for the people camping down by the river in tents. The addition of some strategically placed porta-pots would be helpful. At present, there are only 4 pull-through sites (sun, no shade) but more are in the planning for this fall. Lots 6 – 10 (water/electric only) can be pull-throughs if any one of them is empty. We would definitely recommend this campground to others.
Perfect campground to use as a base for Indianapolis. Friendly office staff. Although it’s in a light industrial type area, there’s not much noise in the background at all. Because of the pond and rolling hills around it, you almost feel like you’re in the country yet you’re only 10 minutes to the center of the city. Swimming in a marked off section of the pond felt great on a hot day! Sites are shared utilities (RVs point in opposite directions) so your door opens to a yard and not someone else’s sewer facilities. Wi-Fi was iffy, at best. Verizon card worked fine. Cable was good. Laundry and bathrooms, although quite a hike from the RV area, are very clean. However, you do have to check your washer for rug "backing" or pet hair before you use it. Lots of geocaches in the area. I'm not sure where the May poster stayed but none of the seasonal sites were junky and the roads aren't bad at all...just drive slowly. Owners are paving more each year. Our only complaint was the 17% tax added to their posted rates. I would most definitely recommend this park to others.
Rate is PA; otherwise $25. Spacious shade/sun sites. Very quiet. Pool, mini golf, playground, pavilions for parties, walking path through wooded area to pond, alpacas to feed (baby carrots), lots of birds. Not a resort but just a nice country campground. We would recommend this to others and would stay here again.
Rate is PA rate. We liked it this year as much as last year when we stayed here. Close to town; lots of geocaches in the area. Easy pull-through sites. Pond could use some cleaning up. Owners very helpful. I could not get wi-fi on my computer but my boyfriend got it on his quite well so I guess I just need a new computer! Used my Verizon card and did okay. I don't remember seeing a playground, but kids can fish in the pond (catch and release) and feed the ducks. You can borrow cane poles from the office. Plenty to do and see in the area. Definitely would recommend to others and will stay here again on our way south next year.
Rate is PA rate. Additional nights only $3 more if you're a PA member. Very quiet, very dark! Cable only available if you are in Row C and then only if they have a "box" available. Many of the sites tend to slope towards the front quite a bit but are still manageable. We would recommend this to those who don't need a pool or playground or other entertainment. We would stay here again.
Stayed here at the Passport America rate. Had Lot #47 which was right next to the pavilion. Gave us a slightly larger "yard". Clean, quiet (except for the occasional train across the highway). We'd stay here again and would recommend it to others.
Rate reflects America the Beautiful-Senior pass. Very nice COE park. I thought, according to the campground map, we would be on the water but we weren't. Not a major problem as it didn't appear that the river had very much boat activity anyway. If you can get a group of 5 people together and let the park host know by Friday, you can get a tour of the locks right down the river. Lots of geocaches and some really neat history in the area. We would stay here again.
Easy off highway, right on the Intercoastal Waterway. It was neat watching the barges go up and down the canal. Lulu's (Jimmy Buffet's sister) Restaurant/Marina on other side of overhead bridge. Wal-mart 1/2 mile; Gulf of Mexico about 1 1/2 miles. Close to great restaurants, shopping, waterpark, Gulf. 9 miles to hospital. 3/4 mile to Urgent Care Center. Yes, the Route 59 bridge goes right over the edge of the campground but eventually you don't even notice it and when you're in your camper, you don't hear it at all. Unfortunately, the tent sites are right next to it but they are under the trees so I don't know how loud the traffic is there. Nothing special about this campground (no pool, no playground) except for proximity to dining, restaurants, and the town of Gulf Shores while still seeming to be "in the country". Restrooms dated but clean. Laundry good. Mostly seasonals but everyone friendly. We will stay here next year when we come to Gulf Shores and would recommend this park to others.
Rate reflects 3-day Passport America rate. This isn't a destination park but is good for overnight or longer if you want to visit the attractions in the area. No playground; no pool. Close to I-10 which is noisy but you do get used to it after awhile. We weren't bothered by the noise even though we sleep with our windows open. Our only complaint, as it were, is that they packed you in right next to each other, even though there were plenty of open spaces elsewhere in the park. There was only about 10' between rigs, and they made you unhook (if you were towing a trailer or fiver) and park your tow vehicle behind your trailer. They do direct you to your full hookup site; there is a nice dog run; Wi-Fi was good; very good selection on cable TV. We would recommend this park to others and will stay here again if we're in the area.
Couldn't decide between this one or Lake Harmony and I'm glad we chose this one. Nothing fancy but friendly people, level sites, easy hookups. We pulled into our site reversely so we'd have a view of the lake out our back window. Had some very heavy rains one night which resulted in 3" of water at our front door the next morning. Owner and his wife brought a platform over during the day so we could get out without getting our feet wet. Laundry has 2 washers and dryers and is clean. Also has a unisex bathroom which is just like a small bathroom at home with shower, toilet and sink. Very nice and clean. Dollar General/Piggly Wiggly/Ace Hardware about 2 miles but for more serious shopping, you have to go to Darien or Hinesville. Propane is about 10 minutes from here. The restaurant is no more; it has been turned into a clubhouse. The logging companies had finished their work by the time we got here so the only logging trucks were those on Route 57 which runs in front of the property. The dirt road is a great place to walk your dog now. Were originally going to stay for 2 nights; ended up staying for 6 weeks. Too much to see and do between Brunswick and Savannah: need at least a month! If you don't need the pool or paved lots, I would highly recommend this campground; we will stay here again.
Very nice campground. Rate is with Good Sam discount. Sites in the transient section are large but sort of set up helter-skelter. There were only a few others here when we pulled in so we had no problem. Beware of the pine cones! If you get hit on the head with one of those monsters, you'll have a headache for days! Beautiful grounds; clubhouse. Clean laundry and restrooms. Propane on the grounds. You do get road noise from the highway during the day but it seems to quiet down at night. Permanents/seasonals are quite sociable. We would definitely stay here again.
Very convenient to the interstate but you don't hear much noise at all. We were startled, though, with a loud boom several times when one of the AF jets broke the sound barrier! Nice campground; propane on grounds; convenient to the State Fairgrounds, Perry, Macon, and Warner Robins and the air base and museum. Lots in upper part of campground were a little tight; those for overnight (nearer the office) are larger. Nice pond. Expensive washers/dryers. We would recommend this campground to others and would stay here again when we're passing through.
Actually, even though the mailing address is Cartersville, this is closer to Acworth, GA. Anyway, there are some nice pull-through sites but ours was not one of them. There was room for our ATV and 40' fiver but the lot dropped down to the lower level about 2' from our bottom step. Plus, upon leaving, you have to go up a very steep hill which some people had a little trouble pulling. If we get back in this area, we will choose lot 120. And the dump station is also on a hill. That aside, our lot, though too narrow, was level and water/electric convenient. Peace and quiet abound in this park (once the barking dog left) and each lot has a large, level sitting/grill/picnic area. We were about 25' above the lake; some lots are closer, vertically. We would stay here again (on a different lot) and would recommend this to others.
Not a fancy campground by any means but it served our purpose quite well. There is a pool but it wasn't open. The barn is a bit run-down and junky but there's a huge open field for games; the sites are wooded and even though the campground is not far from the highway, there isn't any noticeable road noise. This is not a destination campground but is an okay base camp to visit the sights in the area. We would stay here again if we're in the area.
I was a little disappointed that this is no longer a farm but it is a very large, very nice campground surrounded by cornfields…and the Ohio River. The campground is actually in 2 sections…the upper section centered around all the activities and the lower section (183 spaces) right along the river. Although we usually opt for the ease of a pull-thru site, we chose a back-in site here because they were so easy to get into and we could watch the river traffic right out our rear window. Very nice indeed. There are only 4 other campers down in this area so we all have the place pretty much to ourselves. Very friendly staff; enjoyed watching the barge traffic on the river. We would definitely stop here again.
The owner and staff from this campground devote many hours setting up Christmas displays at the park and the Alum State Park so no one was at the office when we arrived mid-afternoon. However, several returned when they were notified that our truck had died right in front of the office and helped us make arrangements to have our fiver taken to our chosen site after the truck left on a roll back. This is a really nice campground with roomy sites, a large meeting room, nice store, pool closed for the winter, and friendly staff. We set them up with two geocaches but don't know if they followed through on that yet. We would definitely recommend this campground to others.
We tried calling several days ahead of time to see if they were still open and never did get a response but decided to give it a try anyway. The bathrooms in the big barn at the entrance were not so good; no one was in the office; and there was a message to check in at Campsite 1...but where was Campsite 1? We decided to go check out campsites and found several pull thrus that were roomy and level. As he was checking out campsites, the manager came in and said to pick whichever site we wanted, no problem. Anyway, sites are long; some maneuvering between the trees but I had no trouble with the 40' fiver. Good antenna reception; good water pressure; good electricity. We did not use the bathhouse in the campground so don't know it's condition. There are not many campers here at this time of year so it was private and quiet. There is a large field, a playground, and a pool. It is 15 minutes to Manchester and restaurants, Walmart. We would stay here again.
This is a large campground right on Lake Erie but there are only 15 long, level, shaded pull-thru sites for overnight stays. We had originally planned this for just a one-night stop on our way to Ohio but it was such a nice campground, we decided to stay the extra day and explore Erie, PA. They do have seasonal sites for anyone that might want to make this area their "summer" home and the seasonal residents are friendlier than we've met elsewhere. There is a lot to see and do in this area...fishing in Lake Erie, the Maritime Museum (and lots of other sights) in Erie, and biking/hiking/picnicing/driving along Presque Isle. The campground hosts are very friendly and helpful; showers clean; roads wide; sites long, shaded and level; walking distance to the lake. We would definitely recommend this campground to others who want to spend a night to a week or longer in the Erie/Lake Erie area.
We stayed here again this year while visiting relatives in the area and enjoyed it as much as last year. Owners are very friendly and helpful; campground is clean and neat, sites are grassy and level. There is no sewer but honey-dipper comes around twice a week for a very reasonable fee. There is a dump station for when you leave. They've expanded the campground into the upper field this year and those sites are nice. You're a bit further from the office and playground and there are no trees there yet but it's like a separate, private campground. Really rather nice. The tent sites here are nice and private, tucked away in little coves. It almost makes me want to go back to tenting! They've added 2 geocache hides here this year so if you're into that, ask at the office. One is part of the CONY promotion and so far, isn't listed on the geocache website. The other one is. There are many other caches within 10 miles so you could keep busy for quite awhile. We will be back next year.
There weren’t any previous reviews for this campground so we went in blind. This is a huge campground, about three minutes from Interstate 90; and spread over a large area. In the transient area, the lots are a decent size. We reserved a full hookup site three weeks in advance via Reserveamerica and received confirmation of a full hookup site. Be aware that the full fee is placed against your charge card as soon you make the reservation, unlike most campgrounds that put a partial payment fee against the card with you paying the balance upon arrival. I did feel the fee was a bit steep for just water and 30-amp electric. Speaking of arrival, the gravel entrance road and interior gravel campground roads are in very bad shape and in dire need of grading and filling. The speed limit is 5 mph but even that is too fast for these roads. I guess all the full hookup sites must be saved for the seasonals because there weren’t any available when we arrived. We were sited in the trailer/boat storage area about 100 yards from the river/Erie Canal which was nice. The sites are grass and nice and level with picnic tables and fire rings. We got very good Verizon broadband connection and about 12 TV channels on the antenna. And even though it is convenient to I-90, there is no highway noise although there is a train somewhere nearby that you can hear every so often. There is a large bar/restaurant and they were having a fish fry the night we arrived. We were tired, though, and didn’t go. There’s a boat ramp that will get your boat on the Erie Barge Canal and two cranes to lift you out although I don’t know if they’re working or not. The one crane is holding a small, rather old houseboat. I drove through the upper campground and decided this overflow area was much nicer. Basically a nice quiet private type area except when partying campers from other sections come parading through on their golf carts playing music loud enough to wake the dead, or when the same campers use the tree line 50’ from your window as their private bathroom! You definitely need a golf cart to get from the lower area to the restaurant or restrooms. It appears the owners are expanding the campground and hopefully, they’ll put restrooms and a shower in the lower area. However, negatives aside, we would stay here again and would recommend it to others.
If I had to pick a seasonal park in New York, this would be it (of course, I haven't seen them all yet). Acres and acres of well mowed grass. Seasonal sites are all nice and neat. Peaceful and quiet, country setting. Closest Walmart is in Cortland, about 15-20 minutes from here. The town of Marathon is a bit torn up right now as they're replacing the main street so we didn't go in there to see what shopping was available. As previous poster said, pull through sites could do with a bit more gravel as they are a bit "squishy" but then again, there's been excessive rain in the region this summer. Easy pull-throughs for short-term stays. The sites on the lake do not have sewer, but they are mostly seasonal sites. Not much for kids to do but a good safe place for them to roam, fish, catch frogs, and just explore. The only reason I only gave it an 8 is because there is no laundromat. We would highly recommend this lovely campground to others, and we certainly will be back if we're in NY again.
Stayed here at end of July because it was near family. Went to Jersey for 3 days and returned here because we like the peace and quiet, and general overall feeling of being "home". Pool is a bit of a walk away from the campground area; huge play structure for the kids; store not very well stocked but it appears most people here are seasonals and Wal-Mart is only about 10 minutes away as are a complete compliment of grocery stores and other shopping. Sites are gravel and level. Free, good Wi-Fi and cable. I would definitely recommend this to others and will stay here the next time we're in this section of PA.
The price reflects Passport America rate. We chose this campground because it is close to relatives. However, it is a bait-and-switch type of operation. When I called in our reservation, I was told we would have a 30amp site as requested, but when we got there, we were charged $4 extra per night for a 50amp site even though we just use 30amps. Didn't like that too much. Their website also advertises FULL hookups but all you get is electric & water. On the plus side: even though the camp roads seem to go every-which-way and the campground has a lot of trees, we had no problem with our 40' fifth-wheel rig. Our site was averaged-sized with room for our rig with the truck parked alongside it. There seems to be a lot of activities to keep kids occupied: a nice little mini-golf course; pool; playground. Store was nicely stocked. Wi-Fi wasn't working when we were there but it didn't matter because it wasn't free and I wasn't about to pay $5/day for it. My Verizon card worked well although a little on the slow side. We would stay here again if we had to be in the area. I would recommend it to others.
Nice park located on edge of hill. Mostly seasonal campers but they were all neat and well taken care of. As the previous poster said, there are only a few sites for large short-term RVs with full hook-ups but it appears they may extend sewerage to the newer sites along the ridge. Internet connect good for my Verizon broadband. We had 30 amp connection. A/C is extra charge/day. They said we wouldn't need it but I'm glad we had it. I would recommend this campground to others. One other thing...you have to stop on a very steep hill where 57 Drive meets Church Drive on the way out. We turned left out of the campground and took the second right and avoided that hill.
Nice little campground right off US460 in Appomattox. No amenities except full hookups but a very convenient place to stay to tour the historic area. Easy in – easy out sites. Cable is available only in the front row and is $2 extra. Mostly seasonals but no problems. Grass could have used some cutting. We would recommend this campground to those who don’t need all the frills. $17 is the Passport America rate with cable.
A bit on the pricey side for what you get. No amenities at all but we knew that before we made reservations. We had pull-thru site #310 which was a bit difficult to get situated on due to location of hill on left and road on right. Currently a mobile home park that the owners are slowly switching to an RV park. Convenient to Route 30 and many activities in the area. A lot of road noise from the highway but we were in one of the lots closest to it. A/C covers most highway sounds. Not a destination park but a base from which to play tourist. Back-in sites on top of hill were nice.
Price reflects PA rate. Very nice campground. Long level pull thru (Yellow #1). Nicely spaced lots. Lots of kids; lots of golf carts. Well-stocked store. A lot of seasonals but most people very friendly. We would have liked to been able to stay longer but all full hookup sites were reserved for the BBQ contest. We would definitely recommend this campground to others and would definitely stay here if in the area again...preferably next year during the BBQ contest!
A very nice campground with a slightly strange setup. The sites are side-by-side hookups so you're close there but each camper has a large yard to their door side. Unfortunately, our slide opens to the utility side so I got a nice view of the camper next door. This is one of the reasons I didn't give this a higher rating. The other reason is because they charge extra for just about everything. $2/night per pet, $5/night for pull-through, $2/night for cable, ?? for wifi, ?? to have a campfire, and $2/day for 50 amp. One fellow brought his own fire ring with cover and his own wood and they still charged him. Other than that, it is a very well maintained campground about 40 minutes from Kitty Hawk with free fishing in the stocked lake. We would recommend this campground to others with the caveat about all the extra rates. They only have 4 pull-through sites but the owner will back your RV in if you need help.
There are decent-sized level grass lots with paved patio and picnic table. There is no cable but good TV and broadband reception. It is very well maintained campground and friendly hosts. There are a few shaded sites; most are in the sun. There are some seasonal year-round RVs but they are mostly in the back and are taken care of. There is lots to see and do in the area. We visited the Rose Garden. Wilson is a pretty neat city with beautiful old homes, lots of shopping choices, art museum, several golf courses, etc. It is not too far from the Raleigh/Durham area and about 15 miles to Rocky Mount. We would recommend this campground to anyone and we did come back here after a short trip to the Kitty Hawk area.
Generally a nice park. We wanted a pull-thru and access to the site we got was a squeeze through the trees...about 6" to spare on each side. Site itself was roomy enough but as one previous poster said, sewer hookup is in middle of site. Luckily, we were level further back on the site so the sewer was under our raised front and easily accessible for us. Had cell service and Verizon broadband coverage. We were not on a lakefront lot but took a drive through that area and it seemed nice. Waterpark is a small one but looked clean. There are some very nice areas under the pines on another peninsula that would make excellent camping spots. We would stop here again.
We were only here for one night due to driving schedule, but would definitely stay again. Lake swimming. Walking trails around both lakes. Large sites with picnic table, camp lantern pole and grill. Miniature golf course. The only minor complaint is that the day-use area is quite close to the campground. Verizon broadband and cell phone worked adequately; about 5 channels on the antenna. Very good campground for families.
Price reflects Senior Pass rate. Our site was on it's own loop about 50' from the lake and was very private. A little difficult to get into with a 40' fiver but then again, we went in "backward" so our view would be toward the lake. The J. Strom Thurmond lake is huge (72,000 acres) and has over 1200 miles of shoreline. The center of the lake is the state line between GA and SC. Peaceful and beautiful. We would stop here again.
What a lovely gem conveniently located right off I-95! Very friendly, helpful owners. Large level pull-through sites in sun (grassy) or shade (under the pines). You do have some pine roots to deal with if you’re in the shade but moving a couple of inches will solve any problem. Catch-and-release lake stocked with catfish, bass and bream. Immaculate new laundry and bathroom facilities, game room with pool table, and playground in the shade for the kids. And for the walkers, 3 times around the sand perimeter drive equals one mile. Excellent cell phone and Verizon broadband reception so I didn’t use the free Wi-Fi. No cable yet but good antenna reception. Propane on-site. Pool is planned. Be aware there’s a small dirt track about a half mile up Route 9 and they run on Saturday nights so sitting outside will be a bit noisy. Nearby attractions include the Darlington Raceway, a working plantation, flea market, and 2 museums. Plenty to do in the area. We will stop here again and stay longer next year. Price reflects PA price for 2 nights.
Only 2 pull-thru sites at this park. Sites in Campground B are paved and pretty level. Restrooms are clean but do need some fixing up. Park office is about a mile past the campground which is a bit inconvenient. Lake with 2 piers for fishing. Campers don’t have to pay to fish which is nice. Verizon cell phone only down near the office and internet connection absolutely non-existent unless you go towards Natchez and find it somewhere along the road. About 15 minutes from Natchez with it’s wonderful history and pre-Civil War homes. Lots to see in the area. We would stay here again and do recommend it for people wanting to tour Natchez.
Rate is a Passport America rate. Popular park right on the Mississippi River. Packed gravel roads lead to sites that are level, spacious paved pull-thrus with plenty of room for RV and towee or toad. Pool, hot tub, bathrooms and laundry clean. Laundry is a bit expensive but they are double and triple- load washers. They do need to put in some regular single-load ones. Internet connection is “iffy” but there is a computer in the lodge room. We enjoyed watching the barges go up and down the river. You can walk along a paved walkway all the way from the campground to the convention center under the bridges. Town of Vidalia doesn’t have a lot to offer but a short drive across the bridge takes you to Natchez, MS with it’s many pre-Civil War mansions and estates. We would most definitely recommend this park and would stay here again.
Very nice park. The $9 fee is with the Golden Age Passport; otherwise $18 a night for a Premium site. HOWEVER, be aware that not all premium sites have sewer as implied on their website! I reserved a premium pull-thru (#24) and it did not have sewer. Only sites #1, #5 and #6 are pull-thru with sewer. 13 of the back-in sites have sewer but some of them might a bit tight to get into with a large rig due to trees. There is a dump station at each of the camping sections but much as I like this park, we may not stay as long as we had wished because I don't feel like going through the take-down, dump, set-up again routine. The campground loop road is 1.5 miles, perfect distance for bicycling or walking. They also have several trails through the woods that are marked and indicate distances along each one. Be sure to wear bug screen though as the deer flies do bite! Areas around the ponds are very noisy at night with frogs and other night critters singing their songs. Really neat. There is Wi-Fi for an additional one time fee of $3.00 and works great! We would most definitely stop here again but will make sure we get site #5 or #6!
Nice little, well-kept campground. Lots of grassy area for tents (no hookups). Sites are easy, level pull-throughs with picnic table and tree. I can see where the one poster felt the sites were too close together because if they used every site, your near-side slide would probably be darn close to your neighbor's awning but, at least while we were here, they parked campers at every other site which was very nice. Several permanents here; several seasonals; and several campers belonging to men working over towards Houston. No problem with electricity; cable TV is great; and they have 5 Wi-Fi sites to choose from. Close to shopping (HEB, small Wal-mart) and a great seafood restaurant: Nancy's Seafood Grill. Don't miss that! We'll stay here again if we're in the area.
This is a nice, quiet park on a peninsula with the Matagorda Bay on one side and the shipyards on the other. You can back in along the bay or the ship lagoons or use the pull-thrus in the center. The sites are nice and long but very close together. You’re almost at your neighbor’s service connections when you come out your front door. This is not a destination park (no pool or playground for the kiddies) but a great park for relaxing and touring the area. Though not a big town, Palacios is close to Port Lavaca where there's plenty to see and do. Dubbed as having the "largest shrimp fleet in Texas", it’s fun to watch the shrimp boats go out and come back each day. If you're a "birder", there are plenty of different birds to be seen when the tide goes out and reveals thousands of oysters in the oyster beds and snails and other goodies for the birds to feast on. One warning though: If you have a long haired dog, beware! Sand burrs abound!! We would definitely recommend this park to others and we will stay here again if we’re in the area.
Very nice little park to use as a base for traveling to the RGV. It is peaceful as advertised on the site but it's not necessarily quiet due to road noise on Route 281. We were in a site furthest from the highway but traffic noise was still disconcerting at first. You do get used to it, though. This campground is about 30 miles from the Mission/McAllen area so it's out of the hustle/bustle/traffic of that area but is only a short drive away. We would stay here again and would recommend it to others.
Very nice RV park but management needs a little education on how to work with the RVers. That's the only reason I didn't give it a higher rating. Some friends stayed here with us and decided they liked it enough to stay an extra week. They checked with the office to see about an extension of time and, after personnel there hemmed and hawed around for about 20 minutes, they finally told our friends to check back in an hour. Well, during that hour, they found another RV park so moved on. We heard several other campers complain about management, too. That said, they have installed new sites (level, concrete pads) but with no shade. The older sites are not paved but are level and shady. Very nice. Some are longer than others so be sure to indicate the length of rv you have when you reserve your spot. Interior roads a bit narrow but the big Class A’s didn’t appear to have any trouble navigating them. Bathrooms and laundry very clean. Didn’t use the heated pool or hot tub but, although the pool looked a bit on the small side, it was clean. There is an exercise room but the lights didn’t work and there were no instructions on how to use the equipment. Had we gone to an exercise class that was offered, though, we might have learned how to use it. Potluck dinners once a week; crafts, bingo, and other activities. The TV service was good and the high speed Wi-Fi worked well for us. Our dog really appreciated the large dog run. Lots of squirrels to keep you amused and the broad-tailed grackles (or whatever) will provide you with never-ending squawks, whistles, chirps and various other delightful sounds. If you’re parked under a tree, they’ll also give you reason to wash your RV! Even with the management problems, we would stay here again and would recommend it to friends.
The nightly rate does not include the $3 per person park entrance fee. There is a separate tent section and two RV sections (also a section with little cabins). This is a lovely campground with nice-sized lots...not all crammed together. There are no pull-thru lots but the back-ins are "do-able". There is no camping at the South Shore as of this date although there may have been in the past. Gravel sites, grass yards. 30 and 50 amps are available. Be aware that there are no "walk-ins" as there are in many state parks. We didn't know this and had planned on staying a week, but found out all the RV sites are reserved for the coming weekend so we will move on. One thing I didn't like was that you have to drive through the campground first (4 miles from the office) and pick out 3 sites you like. Then you have to drive back to the office and they will let you know of their availability. I guess this is because of reservations. This is a bit of a bother...but it did allow us the chance to pick out what I think was the nicest site there! Fishing is reportedly great but watch out for the alligators! Lots of different birds, deer, raccoons, etc. Just a very nice peaceful campground.
We stayed here with Passport-America rate. This is a very nice campground with good access to the clear waters of the Frio River. There is a small store and propane is available at the office. There is a large room for get-togethers. Campers are a friendly bunch and everyone chipped in for a brunch on Christmas. They have game nights, crafts, golf (nearby), and other activities. The 10 cable stations had good reception. My only two complaints was (1) no Verizon phone service but you can buy a Go-Phone (ATT) that supposedly works here. This is a bit of a major complaint because we do not like being without phone service in case of emergencies. However, this is not the fault of the park...and a pay phone is available at the office. They have Wi-Fi but it's through an outside company that you have to sign up with. We would definitely come back here again.
A very nice, quiet, country campground. I echo everything the previous poster said but will add that they just finished blacktopping the pull-thru sites which are a tad narrow but quite long. We did have to use a board to level side-to-side. They feed the deer at 5:00 each evening in the middle of the field so everyone can watch. We only stayed one night, too, due to previous reservations but would return here if in the area again.
Lovely campground. Yep, they are dirt sites but they're level and large. Activities scheduled for different nights. Convenient to Carlsbad Caverns. Very friendly owners and hosts. RV service right next door. Very clean game room, laundry, Tea Room (for meetings). Neat "library/store" with tons of reading material plus DVD rentals. We would have loved to have stayed longer but they were full starting the day we left. Will definitely stay here when we're in the area again.
Okay place to stay a night or two while visiting the area. Easy off/on I-10. Road noise is noticeable. Sites are close together. There are oil field workers living here but that's not a problem. Nothing fancy but a place to set the wheels. One shower (clean), good cable, level dirt sites, inexpensive full-hookup. We would stay here again if passing through.
A nice park with wide paved roads and cement RV pads with an additional attached cement pad for TV or toad. The easy-to-access pull-through lots along the south side abut the Gander Mountain parking lot with a stockade fence between the park and Gander Mountain. It is a quiet park not counting the road noise which can be a bit loud at times. There are very clean restrooms and showers; a small library; a meeting room with kitchen; laundry; and friendly owners. Wi-Fi is $3 a day via thewirelessweb. I had no trouble with my Verizon aircard. We would definitely stay here again when we're in the area.
That's a Passport-America rate. Campground is a good place to stop for an overnight due to it's proximity to I-40. Be aware that if you're driving west, you turn right when you get off the interstate. Our GPS told us to turn right (and the directions from the website) told us to turn left and we ended up at an "exotic club". Absolutely nothing fancy about this campground. Full hookups and that's it. Also located under the flight path for the Amarillo International Airport which is sort of interesting the first time a big 4-engine jet flies over your RV! No flights after around 10:00 though. Propane and convenience store across the road. There are permanent sites but residents are friendly. Inexpensive place to use as base camp to visit Amarillo, Lake Meredith, or Palo Duro Canyon. We wouldn't hesitate to stop here again.
The price is the Good Sam's rate. Some campsites are a little difficult to get into due to angle of site and/or tree branches but once you're in, you're okay. There were some very long Class A's and their toads in there and they fit, lengthwise, on the sites. There is a very nice laundry; game room with pool table and shuffleboard plus a full kitchen and large room for meetings. There is a Book swap/library in another room. 1/2 of park are permanents or seasonal campers mostly people working for the oil or gas lines. We recommend this park and would stay here in the future.
There IS a benefit to being over 62...half price at COE parks! And, at $7 a night, this was a wonderful park. At this time of year, there were only 4 other campers in the whole campground so we had the park to ourselves. Water & electric only with several dump stations throughout the park. As the previous poster said, each campsite has a covered picnic table and a grill...a really nice touch. My only problem with Ft. Supply COE was that there was NO TV or internet access, even with the Verizon air card. Had to drive to Woodward and park in a motel parking lot for Wi-Fi. We most definitely would recommend this park and will most definitely camp here in the future.
This is a nice little RV park about 2 miles outside of Pratt. Warning! If you're going west on 400/54, do not turn left onto 19th Avenue (that's what our GPS told us to do). That road turns into a private driveway with no means of turning around without driving through the field (which we did). The entrance to the Motel/Park is about 100' further up the hill. The wifi might have been available but it wasn't working the night we stayed here. However, I had no trouble with my Verizon air card or the cell phones. Lots are long, wide, and graveled; no trees; no grass but it has fields on 3 sides and the motel on the 4th side so you don't really feel like you're in a parking lot. Rick's Restaurant is within walking distance and serves a good country meal at very reasonable prices. We only used this as a one-night stop on the way to Oklahoma but wouldn't hesitate to stop here in the future for a longer stay to visit Pratt and surrounding area.
The owner was very friendly and helpful. There was a sign on the office door when we arrived telling campers to pick a campsite and settle up with her when she got back. It was easy on and off I-70, and, although it's within 1/4 mile of the highway, you don't really hear the highway noise. The oil well museum closes in September, but there are plenty of rigs, bits, etc. to see outside. There is a great grocery store in Russell--Klema's Hometown Market. Many of the buildings in Russell are constructed of native limestone which is really neat. Russell is only 30 miles east of Hays where the Boot Hill Cemetery is located in addition to a buffalo herd, Historic Fort Hays, Sternberg Museum of Natural History, and other points of interest. We will definitely stay here when we're in the area again.
If this is what Corps of Engineers campgrounds are like, sign me up! The rate reflects an off-season Golden Eagle rate but even at the full rate of $10, you sure can't beat this park. Large pull-throughs, beautiful lake views, peace and quiet. Handicapped accessible restrooms; boat ramp; laundry room; and several playgrounds. My only wish is that they would put some pull-through sites at the east end of the park where the water is. We would most definitely stay here again.
If we could always stay at places like this and a price like this, we'd be in Camper Heaven! Our price was reduced because of 'off season' but our scenery was as good as it gets; the geese were as noisy as they can be; the peace and quiet were unbeatable. There is a boat launch and a swimming beach but since it was October (and we don't have a boat), we didn't use either. Onawa is a nice little sprawled-out midwestern town; nearest laundry is in Whiting, about 10 minutes away. Indian casino about 5 minutes away. Propane and diesel available at Dave's World, a small truck stop/restaurant next to the exit. We would have stayed much longer but winter's moving in! Would definitely stay here again...and again...and again.
This is basically a small gravel lot with hookups for parking your RV. No pool; no bathrooms; and no showers. For self-contained units only. Easy access off SR 81 about 4 miles northwest of Columbus. We stopped here on our way south. Very close to highway so you do get highway noise but it is clean and well-kept. Corn fields on 3 sides. Other than road noise, it is very quiet. Owner on site and very helpful. We would stop here again.
We stayed in one of the full-hookup sites for this price. There are also sites with water and electric(20 and 30 amp), from 60-85 feet long and 15 feet wide for $18 and sites with20,30 and 50 amp electric and water, about 20 feet wide by 80 feet long. Not all sites are shaded. Highway noise is present but not objectionable. All sites are easily accessed for even the largest rigs. Iowa's Best Burgers is a short walk from the campground. We would stay here in the future.
I agree with the previous posters. Friendly, clean campground. Level pull through lots; some shared hookups. The pool probably closed on Labor Day...it was looking a little green when we were here. There is a playground for kids. I felt it was a tad on the high side for only 30 amps and no cable but it's proximity to I-80, it's large, easy-to-access sites, and it's exceptionally clean bathrooms and laundry made the price a little more tolerable. There wasn't much in the store when we were there because a large RV rally had just been there and they hadn't had time to restock. Proximity to riverboat casinos is an added plus. We would definitely stay here again if we were in the area.
Located behind Cassidy's Motel at Exit 49 (Route 39) of Indiana I-80/I-90. Passport America rate. This is a very nice, well-kept campground with 20 padded spaces right off the interstate. It cannot be considered a “destination campground” because it has none of the so-called important amenities (playground, pool, laundry, store, etc.) but it’s a very nice base camp for overnight or visiting the area. There is a nice pond that must have some fish cause there's a blue heron that fishes there. The only drawback is that I-80/I-90 is only about 100 yards away so you do get traffic noise but it's continual enough that it eventually fades into the background. We would most definitely stay here again.
When we first got here, the only thing I could say was "WOW, it's HUGE!" And huge it is. As previously said, beach is about a mile away (there are campsites right at the beach but not really good for big rigs) and it is a rocky beach so make sure you have water shoes to wear. The spaces are not particularly large but it was an easy pull-through for us while my son had a tight back-in spot. This is most definitely a campground for families with lots of activities to keep even the most finicky child occupied. Clean pool, shuffleboard and tennis courts, large game room with mechanical games to suit any age (even us "oldsters"). Candy bar bingo and nicely stocked store. Movies and a large playground. Many, many electric (quiet) golf carts of all shapes and sizes so you have to be on the lookout if you're walking or driving a regular vehicle. We would stay here again.
Easy access off I-90. The driveway in is a bit steep and a lot rough but doable for our 37' fiver. We had a pull-thru site right next to the pavilion/bath house and there were some guys hanging around there when we got to our campsite which made me a bit uneasy. However, soon found they were there for some Lake Erie fishing trips and were staying in the dorm-like rooms in the bath house section of the pavilion. Bathrooms were clean but small (3 showers/1 toilet on women's side) and could use a little updating. They are locked at night but you get a key when you check in. The creek was low in August; it seems their good fishing season is fall through spring. You can purchase PA fishing licenses and all your fishing gear at the store which is geared more for fishing than camping. There is a small catch-and-release pond on the grounds and Lake Erie fishing is 15 minutes away. Very quiet; beautiful scenery; swings, jungle gym and slide for the kids; volleyball net. I think the pull-thru sites are rather close together but since we were the only "big rig" there (most were seasonals), we had the whole area to ourselves. Would definitely stay here again.
We reserved a site at this campground without the benefit of previous reviews and we lucked out. The pull through sites in the front are decently level with a table, fire ring and one or two trees on each site. It appears 2/3 of the campsites are seasonal but they're neat and well kept. Very nice walking trails throughout the campground with several leading to a golf course (don't know the size). Golf clubs for rent in the office. Restrooms are showing their age but they are very clean as is the laundry. Small playground for children (swings & slide); game room with video games; small store with camping basics and groceries; rec room and pavilion. There's a small dirt race track directly across the street that has races on Saturday evenings. Honey dipper comes through 2x a week and there is an RV repair shop in Caledonia that offers mobile repair services. We would definitely camp here again.
Though it's listed as big rig friendly, the sites aren't really long enough for a long fiver and tow vehicle or a large Class A with a toad. You have to park across the front of your rig and our dual-wheel truck stuck out onto the road. The entrance road could use some work as it's a bit rutted and rocky. Now for the good: great cable; nicely landscaped (though not necessarily level) wide sites; clean pool; exercise room; friendly, helpful owners.
We used this as an overnight stop. Sites are easy pull-thrus and wide. We stayed hooked up and although our truck was on a slope, the fiver wheels were on the level; we didn't need to use any of our leveling equipment. There are seasonals here but they're neat and well kept. Saw everything from a tent to a 42' Class A. Pizza shop within walking distance if you don't feel like cooking. We were only able to get one local TV station using our antenna. You do hear the noise from the highway but, hey, you're not in the middle of the woods...and in the summer, with the air conditioner on, not a problem. We wouldn't hesitate to stop here again.
Very convenient stop for overnight or while visiting the VA Horse Park or historic Lexington. As the others have said, it's between the multi-level truck stop and I-81 but you don't hear much noise from either at night. During the day, I-80 is a bit noisy when you're outside the RV. They only have 2 pull-through sites and we were told they don't take reservations for them. Verizon air cards work great here. My only 2 wishes would be for more pull-thru sites and well-signed, designated parking area for campers while signing up. You do have to sign up in the truck stop office. However, we would stop here again.
Owner goes all out to be helpful. Campground is not a destination campground but rather a base for nearby touring. About 30 minutes from Durham and Duke Medical Center, 15 from Chapel Hill. Sites are large. Occupants ranged from mobile homes (either seasonal or full time) to large Class A's, fifth wheels, and trailers - full time, seasonal, weekender's, overnighters. Most sites are shaded. WiFi is most excellent. Cable choices abundant. Trash is picked up at the campsite 2x a week. Monthly rate includes electric so you know just what your expenses are going to be. Secure, quiet, friendly. Would recommend this to anyone who doesn't need entertainment and playgrounds.
Easy access from interstate. This campground must be beautiful in the summer. There are plants all over the place. Sites are quite close together but there aren't a lot of campers in December so there was at least one space between us and another camper. Restrooms appear to have been redone and are sparkling clean. Pool and slide for during the summer. Very congenial and helpful owner is working on putting in new, larger sites and a pond. Other than current lot size, the only negative is that the dumpsters are some distance from the camping area. We will stop here the next time we're in the area.
Nice campground; level sites; they lead you to your site in a golf cart. Open year round but they tell you that during the winter, if the temps are going to dip to the 30's during the night, they turn the water off. Turn it back on in the a.m. I do wish they had cable. Pay for WiFi, as was mentioned. One of the most convenient things for us is that there is a pizza parlor somewhere nearby that delivers to the campground! Great for when you get in late at night and don't feel like cooking. I would stay here again and would recommend it to friends.
Pros: Very clean and well kept. Very friendly and helpful management. Small enough so I would imagine that if you stayed a week or more, you'd know everyone else in the park. It also had some rental cabins at the end of the lake. Cons: We had a small site #12. Not enough room for tow vehicle and 32' 5th wheel front to back; had to park truck horizontally in front of trailer. . . which was a bit hazardous because of sunken fire pits. Sites further up the row appeared to be longer. Also did not like the water connection being located ABOVE the electrical connection. We will camp here again...but pick a different site.
