This is the second time we camped here. They accept Passport America. The location is wonderful, within walking distance of quaint shops and restaurants. The view of the Guadalupe River is lovely, though the park itself is nothing special. The management is friendly. The power was good, the cable TV worked perfectly, and we had excellent 3G Verizon Wireless service. We will stay here again when we next visit our friends in Ingram.
Camped here with an RV club. The management was very friendly and helpful with information about the area; however, they insisted on locking up the clubhouse by 9 PM which is sort of early for an RV club rally. Usually the rally wagon master has the keys, but this park insisted on keeping them. The sites were back-ins which was not ideal for a group with large motorhomes. Everyone leaving at around the same time can cause congestion in the roads while people hook up their towed vehicles. The trash disposal was only in one place, and campers had to walk quite a ways to the back of the campground to dispose of their trash. The booklet we were handed on arrival had more rules than I'd seen in a while, including a request to "register pets" at the office, which we did not do. This is not an inexpensive campground, and a charge of almost $4 per day (for less than a week) for WiFi was pretty steep. The power was good, and there was excellent Verizon 4G service. I have my own WiFi through Verizon so I used that for a whole lot less expense than the campground charges. If we return to Rockport, we'll find another place that doesn't think so much of itself.
Stayed here with our RV club. This is a nice park in a great location. Mostly pull-through sites, but the sites are a bit close together as they are in most older parks. The management is in the process of revitalizing the bathrooms, but they were clean and usable. Good power, excellent Wi-Fi and cable TV (both free) and good Verizon 3G service.
We attended an RV club rally here. The park is lovely and new. Sites are long, fairly level pull-throughs. Management is helpful and friendly. WiFi was strong and worked well. Good Verizon 3G signal. Without some kind of supplemental booster, such as an analog to digital converter box, or special digital antenna, it's almost impossible to get over-the-air TV with just an HDTV and bat wing. In an area like this, I think cable service should have been mandatory. I would have been willing to pay a few dollars a day for it. There is virtually nothing in this area. Closest restaurant is a truck stop on I-20. Park is quiet and there is a pasture next door with some interesting longhorns, but no smells or flies from the animals. For dog owners, the management has stationed waste bags and disposal buckets all over the park. We would stay here again for a rally, or if we were passing through for a night.
We spent the night here on the way to an RV club rally. We had a reservation and were pleased to find a board with our name and a site # when we came in as the office was closed. The sites are huge, gravel pull-through with plenty of room for a big motor home and toad. Our little 23' Class C got lost. The site was shady and the landscaping very pleasant. The park is mostly used for permanent sites, but it was very quiet. Later in the evening the owner came by our rig, greeted us by name and thanked us for coming to stay in his park. What a pleasant experience! We paid $12.50 using Passport America for the site. This is a really special little park. If it had cable TV, I'd give it a 10. The over-the-air TV reception was spotty and we don't have satellite TV.
Pretty park with nice sites. Not very much shade, however. Full hookups and long pull-throughs. Wi-Fi sites are nearer the office. Great Verizon Wireless 3G signal. Friendly office person. We stayed for one night, passing through. It's near the highway, but not close enough for noise. Wi-Fi was excellent. Open system, so look for "linksys" no codes needed. Electricity voltage was good. I'd stay here again if I was passing through the area.
The sites near the lake are all permanent, leased to road pavers for the season. Most of the other sites seemed to be seasonal,too. Not a very quiet place and the access road into the park is horrid! The management is working on upgrading the park and assured me that they would be attending to the roads as soon as they finished upgrading the electricity. Management was friendly and helpful. This park is quite a piece from the highway so it might be better for a longer stay than just one night, which was what we did. There is no cable, but there is a weak, but usable over-the-air signal for TV. Wi-Fi was okay. There was a decent Verizon 3G signal. We stayed under Passport America.
Loved this park! It is small and really a destination park, not a place to overnight, though we did overnight there to visit friends in Blacksburg. Our site backed up to the New River. It was peaceful and lovely. Good electric and water. Dump station but no sewer hookups. The campground is also a tubing company and most people seem to come there for river activities. There are a lot of tent campers, so be advised that the air will be smoky. The Wi-Fi signal was strong, but I was unable to connect, leaving me to believe their server was down. I did get a marginal 3G signal on Verizon and a usable 1X signal for tethering my netbook so I didn't miss the Wi-Fi. The young woman in the office is delightfully friendly. The campground is quite a bit off the beaten path.
We spent two nights here on our way through to New Jersey. We had expected to stay further west but there was a huge power outage, so we called this place and, though their office was closed, they were nice enough to give us a site number over the phone and asked us to check in and pay in the morning. The campground is old, filled with mature trees and many seasonal sites. The sites are not well defined even though they are numbered. The people we met were friendly. The cable worked perfectly and there was a good WiFi signal strength, though I did not pay the $5 use fee as there is an excellent 3G Verizon signal and I was able to use my smartphone. This is the kind of campground we used to visit with our children, where they played all day in the pool and everyone sits around the campfire at night.
Nice family campground. Many of the sites appeared to be seasonal with big, wooden decks. Lots of children and things for them to do. Bathrooms were individual with shower, toilet and sink in one private room. Showers are coin fed. The Wi-Fi was working well. We were not able to get any over-the-air TV channels and the VZW signal was barely there and 1X. There is a pavilion with a TV that gets DirecTV. Prices were $50 for back in and $60 for pull through. There are no sewers.
Camped here for one night. Site was grass and not level even though I asked for a level site. We had no sewer hookup, just water and electric. Excellent VZW 3G signal so I didn't miss the fact that the Wi-Fi is only at hot spots at the store and the club house. Site was shaded and pleasant, though unpaved. There is some highway noise. There are two indoor pools here, but we did not use any of the facilities as we were passing through.
Very expensive for one night of traveling through an area. Site was dirt and not terribly level. Ask management which sites get Wi-Fi before letting them assign one. They have a disclaimer that Wi-Fi will not reach all their sites. No bars, but Verizon 3G was working. No cable TV, just a few over the air channels. For that price I expected cable TV. Otherwise a nice park that caters to families wanting recreation on the Wisconsin River.
We camped here with our FMCA group. The park is run down. The big rally building was old, not well kept and smelled awful. The road into the park is filled with chuck holes and broken pavement. Lots of old trees, many of which have low-hanging branches. Lots of dead leaves and other decaying vegetation on the ground. Very sandy soil and it tracks in to the coach. Water pressure is on the low side. The office is only open for a few hours in the morning and they charge $2 extra per day if you pay by check. They don't take credit cards. There is a fee for the WiFi. I did not use it. I got a strong 3G signal on my Verizon phone. If it were not that we were with friends at a rally, I'd never stay here. Our group chose it when we had a last minute cancellation from the park we were supposed to go to. We have stayed in some less than lovely campgrounds, but they were on route and only for a night. This place is so far off the beaten path that facing the horrid access roads is just not worth it.
We pulled in here for one night. Paid cash so we got a $2 discount. Even though they are in the TACO (Texas Association of Campground Owners) they will not give the customary 10-15% discount with the TACO card. The gal at the office signed us in. She gave me the Wi-Fi code and led me to believe there was Wi-Fi in the park. She couldn't find her husband so she jumped in the golf cart and led us to a site. The site was the first on a line of hookups, one in front of the other, along the road. She extended her left arm and pointed with her left index finger and drove off. We figured she meant to do a U-turn and park next to the hookups facing the other way. Otherwise, we'd be in the road. We set up. There was no Wi-Fi and a trip to the office was to no avail as the office was closed. We were sitting down to dinner a hour later when she came by with her husband to tell us that we were facing the wrong way. The husband and my husband went around the rig to talk about it. The woman sat in the golf cart blowing cigarette smoke into my RV. When I told her that we were about to sit down to dinner, she said that she hadn't had her dinner due to unhappy campers. (no comment) The husband decided we were light enough to not damage their cables and pipes so we didn't have to unhook and move. When asked about the Wi-Fi, we were told that it might be available in the laundry but most parts of the park did not get it. Though the park was far from full, they put us in the site closest to the highway and under an extremely bright sodium light. The cable offering was rather sparse. I barely got a 3G Verizon Wireless signal. the signal bounced between 1X and 3G but was enough to tether my cell phone to the netbook. Perhaps they are kinder to large rigs at this park, but our 23' class C (no tow) was put in the worst possible space. I don't think we will return. The management appears clueless and the park seems to be mostly stationary.
We stayed here with a rally. The rally building is beautiful. The park is well maintained and the staff is quick to fix any problems. The cable splitter at our site was a little worn and they replaced it immediately. There are few trees, the omnipresent nearby train (do they build RV parks without trains nearby?) and an industrial area on one side that is a bit noisy during the day. There is a small selection of RV gadgets and snacks in the office store. The free Wi-Fi was excellent. The cable was fairly extensive and had HBO. I had excellent Verizon Wireless 3G service. The park is very, very clean.
We spent 3 nights in this lovely park. We chose a water and electric only site and we were glad as those sites are much nicer and more level than the full-service sites. There is a dump station available before you exit the park. We enjoyed watching the squirrels and listening to the calls of the various birds that live here. There were a few TV channels available over the air. Verizon Wireless had a perfect 3G signal however a neighbor with AT&T could not get any service.
I could not believe such a pretty, well-kept park would be affiliated with Passport America. The sites were shaded and well-maintained. Wi-Fi worked well. I also had an excellent Verizon Wireless 3G signal. The Snake River is practically in the park and it was a lovely walk down to the riverfront. I would definitely stay there again.
The only other units in the park were construction workers or unoccupied units belonging to vacationing construction workers. We had to pay extra for cable so we paid $13.50 under Passport America with no sewer and 30 amp. I had to run about 40 feet of coax to hook into the cable TV at another site. The cable service was excellent with many channels. The manager was very friendly and polite. The trains did not bother us at all. There are no picnic tables. The Wi-Fi is included, but it kept dropping me. I don't think the management quite understands the concept of Wi-Fi. He did try. There is an excellent Verizon 3G signal. I did not check out the restrooms as they were constantly being used by a large family with very small children that were camped in a tiny, ancient, Winnebago. I believe they were construction workers. I would not stay there again as the other campers seemed to be drinking heavily from what I saw and as evidenced by the amount of beer cans in the recycling barrel and the report of the manager. There was one unit with a vicious looking dog tied to a chain who growled at me making me fearful of walking my toy Poodle past that site.
This is a lovely, fairly new park with a security gate. We have a small class C so we were given one of the back-in sites. These sites are all sloping downhill and require you to level your RV to be comfortable. Most small units don't come with hydraulic jacks, so using these off-level sites for small motor homes is not a great idea. Fifth wheels and travel trailers are better equipped to deal with such off-level sites. The laundry room was clean and the machines worked well. I had some difficulty with the Wi-Fi, but after several tries, I finally connected. The cable TV had the fewest amount of channels I have ever seen. Though I didn't try, I believe I could have gotten more channels over the air. We used our Good Sam discount. We would stay there again for an overnight if they offered us a level site.
We were the only campers for the two nights we were there. It was like wilderness camping, but with hookups. The night sky was absolutely worth the price as was the scenery consisting of the red rocks of Angel Canyon in a 360 degree view. There are no amenities other than full hookups with 30/50 amp electric, water and sewer. There are lovely areas where the picnic tables are placed under juniper trees. We took the tour of the facilities and were impressed with what our donations have helped create. I had a great 3G signal on Verizon Wireless and was able to use my cell phone to connect to the Internet. I think that the people who stay here are dedicated donors to Best Friends as we are. It's not a place anyone just passing through would want to stay at.
When we checked in we were told that the showers and restrooms were closed because of a broken pipe. The Wi-Fi is available only in certain rooms. I was pretty close to the library and there was no signal. We were able to get several channels of TV over the air. There is no cable TV. The sites are extremely narrow. They are also extremely un-level. We had to use two boards under the front wheels of our class C. Hookups are located in various places on the left side of the site, but the electric is not near the sewer and neither electric nor sewer are near the water. There are no picnic tables and no room to put out a lawn chair. We were at the bottom of the hill in site #9 where there was a small picnic table near a fire ring which we used to grill our dinner. The hot tub was out of order. We had stayed here many years ago under Camp Coast to Coast and I remember the place looking much better. We stayed here under Passport America. Management was friendly and helpful.
The access road is a county road and needs to be resurfaced. It's a washboard! The nice manager said the county won't repave until there is rain. The management is very friendly and helpful. We could not get a single TV channel on our antenna. This must be the only place in the US that is not digital or the signal is so distant that my bat wing antenna and booster could not find it. It's dusty, not well kept, and other than an inexpensive night on the way to another destination, has nothing to offer. We have a 30 amp rig and the electricity was good.
This is an older park and can use some attention. The sites need to be redone. Grass is growing where it should not. We stayed here 2 nights under Passport America. The pool was clean and very refreshing. Management was friendly. The Wi-Fi was strong and worked well. The cable for TV provided by the park was awful. I replaced it with a length of my own and it worked perfectly.
