GoG RV Resort Review.
I called to make initial one night reservation, a week or so later I called back to extend it to a 2-night reservation and then called a 3 Rd time 2 weeks later to move it out one day later than planned. Staff seemed nice enough and accommodating.... BUT NOBODY GAVE ME A WARNING ABOUT THEIR ISSUES WITH GPS. Whether you use Apple maps or Google maps...they both direct you to the EXIT of the park....as opposed to the front entrance. Lucky for them I got there after their early closing time, so when I actually found my way around to the entrance, I was met by the night watchman. When I barked at him about the screwed-up GPS, he laughed it off and said "Yeah everybody knows about it, but the owners can't get Google to change it. Have you ever tried to get Google to change anything?"
No, but lots of parks have "issues" with GPS directions. The staff tell you about them, their websites warn you about them....GoG on the other hand said nada, zip, zilch. NOTHING.
Why is it a big deal...because to get from the back to the front towing a 43 + foot 5er isn't just as easy as going around the block, especially when your GPS stops updating.... see ATT below.
If this happens to you, my suggestion is DRIVE IN THE EXIT GATE.
Now.. for the rest of the review. While “RESORT” is in their name and they do have two swimming pools, this is NOT a resort like a Rayford Crossing in the Woodlands or Stella Mare in Galveston....
GoG has 5-6 concrete/flat pads. The rest are all gravel and some are fairly flat. Our spot was not flat, but we were able to get level.
Then the line from the tank dump to the park sewer connection then ran UPHILL.??
The parking spaces are very, very close....so close that your picnic table is sitting within 5 feet to the LEFT of your neighbor’s sewer connection. When it was barely above freezing the 1st week of May....wasn't used, do not an issue. Come humid mid-summer....Hmmmm???
They seem to have propane service, but their website does not mention it.
Did not use their laundry or showers or go in their office, wife wouldn't let me. She knew I wanted to get the GPS thing off my shoulders.
Wi-Fi is a joke....my tablet wouldn't connect, nor would my laptop. I was able to get my email over my mobile phone, but that was it, but it took forever. ATT cellular was 1-2 bars...SOMETIMES…. then going to ZERO. We both lost connectivity at the back gate, the early evening when we arrived. So, we had no clue how to get back to the front gate on the narrow road. This was observed on both Apple and 'Droid devices. ??
The park seemed clean enough, not a lot of trash and junk around parked rigs...even the ones that looked long term or permanent.
While I didn't have a problem with my 2020 43 ft Vilano, big rigs beware.... turns are tight and not easy for the novice driver or faint of heart.?? Guests park near the road on some turns, making it more difficult.
When you come in the front gate, one of the first signs you see, has a corner bent and says "CAUTION TIGHT TURNS".????
All in all, were it not for the weather, we would have/could have enjoyed our stay.....except WE PAID $90.00 A NIGHT to stay in a unlevel, gravel pad, no cable, terrible wi-fi, no satellite reception RV park.
$40-50 a night and I would have not said a word...other than maybe complain that the staff said nothing about the GPS issue.
$90 a night and given what their webpage pictures show...I was expecting something like Rayford Crossing or Stella Mare.??????
In my opinion the "price to value" equation is way NEGATIVE.
