We used this Good Sam Park as a one-night stay on our latest trip. Parking for registration is located right in front of the office. The staff was nice and helpful and led us directly to our site.
Park Location and Access this Park is conveniently located approximately a half-mile East of I-49. All roads from the highway to the park are easy to navigate for any size rig. The same inside the park it’s well marked and easy to navigate. You can barely hear some road noise from the Interstate but it’s nothing that will annoy you. Once inside your RV you shouldn’t hear a thing as it’s a very quiet and peaceful location.
Sites and Spaces we chose a site in row 22-28 that had pull-thru spaces. All the sites are gravel and for the most part they all appear to be fairly level. Our site was level from side-to-side and just slightly off from front to rear. The area around the site was mostly grass with several large shade trees. At the end of this row, directly across from site 28, is the dog park.
Power, Water, and Sewer all were conveniently located, and the power supply had no issues at all. We use a Progressive Industries HW50C and all the electrical parameters were spot-on during our stay. Water pressure was very good but note that the park rules require that you use a pressure regulator. The in-ground sewer connection was conveniently located. The Park rules also state that your sewer hose connection must be airtight where it connects to the outlet.
Wi-Fi, Satellite, Cable, and OTA there is free Wi-Fi in the Park which was able to achieve 19 Mbps down and 2 Mbps up on the BigRedBarn1 network and 4 Mbps down and about 1 Mbps up on the BigRedBarn3 network. AT&T (LTE) had 3 bars and Verizon (4G) had 2 bars. Verizon’s 4G had 35 Mbps down and 8 Mbps up. AT&T LTE was able to hit 184 Mbps down and 15 Mbps up. Satellite reception could be an issue as there are trees blocking the southern view to quite a few sites. From our site (#27) our roof-top mounted DISH system was never able to lock onto a satellite due to trees. However, if we were going to be here for longer than a day or two, I would relocate our Dish to a ground location with a clear southern view and I’m pretty sure that reception would not be an issue. With all the great Wi-Fi connections, we were able to watch everything over Roku with no problems. We were also able to pick up 14 local stations over the air and they all had great reception with clear HD pictures. There is also free cable provided at each site.
Bathrooms, Showers, and Laundry are all located in the same building located next to the office. Bathrooms and showers are well maintained, climate controlled, and clean. The laundry room is clean, climate controlled, and has plenty of washers and dryers.
Dog Park they have two separate dog parks that are right next to each other. They are both fenced and secure with good strong gates to each one. They have benches to sit on, water for Fido, and there is a doggie-bag dispenser and trash can right at the entry gate. Around the perimeter of the Park, are grassy areas to walk your dog and they have doggie-bag dispensers located in multiple locations.
Amenities the Park has a Central fire pit & barbecue area, picnic tables, swings, and Adirondack chairs around the fire pit where free wood is provided. There is a family outside game area with Corn hole, a ladder game, Connect Four, and Yahtzee.
Summary A nice park that is great for an overnight stay due to its proximity to I-49. Even though we weren’t offered the home-made cookies or dog treats that everyone raves about, I would not hesitate to recommend this park, or to stay here again. I’ve also included several photos that should provide a good overview of the park and amenities.
