Expectations can be a difficult thing. We expected a resort like RV Park (such the many we have stayed at prior as we are not new at the travel trailer experience and understand the word “resort” is used loosely in differing contexts) the price for this stay Implied to us ($60 ish per day) as did the high Sams rating (Who provides these high scores?) that we were entering a very nice place. So this fell way short of our expectations and I will give some specifics so you can decide if this could be a good fit for you or your family. Let me put this into two categories for your convenience
1. Who this place might be a great option for
2. And the rest of us
Please verify accuracy with the Park on this pricing info if you plan on going, I believe I got this correct here. Also know we have no personal grievance, and we didn’t have any bad interaction with staff. We are very disappointed in the high ratings and high price for what we actually did experience. This was the highest priced stay in years and the lowest quality, which says a lot considering where we have been. Anyway as I said it was our high expectations that made this one a tough stay.
1. Who this could work for - if you want to purchase a reduced two day pass...
(the season price for more than a two day stay from what I gather is the same for everyone aka no discounts,, the point is you will spend $60 Ish on the rv lot per day and pay additional money for 2 day $26 Ish 2 day pass or $59 for season pass if you want more than two days, say 3 days or 4 days, you will need to pay full season rate)
...and plan to spend the bulk of your time in the water park and want the convenience of being on location and not having to spring for parking, I believe you would really enjoy the water park and being where the action is for your stay. If you don’t really care too much about other RV Park amenities, you should be reasonably happy here. The water park looked amazing, people seemed to be having a great time. Major crowds each day, with happy loud had by all.
2. If your not planning the water park, this RV park falls way short of most things we expect for the price. Remover the price didn’t include access to the water park, in addition the website as I recall suggested we would be on this nice lake with swimming, boating, water skiing etc. we could find no access point as he entire park is chaIn fenced, the rental area for the boated, etc had no swimming signs (small unattractive area from a swimming point of view anyway) by the way it was very hot and no pool or lake to swim in unless you paid for water park or rented a jet ski or something. We just wanted to spend a few days in a nice park before we moved on. We had just come off a great “Resort” in Oklahoma that had free swimming pool, amazing bathrooms, lodge with televisions, ping pong tables, pool tables, great facilities by way of kitchen and a host of nice things included and the price was $52 a day. The water park doesn’t provide any of this, of course you can pay and enjoy the water park (see category 1 above)
Here at the water park RV We had a good flat concrete pad, no trees but level. The sewer has raised tubes and this an issue but minor in the grand scheme of things.
The dumpsters in our stay were nearby and for whatever reason, constantly full and overflowing, a tall wierd design, apparently the only one for the park? Amusingly I had to attempt a throw or two to get our garbage onto the heap as side doors were full up. Again minor stuff really.
The bathrooms, just unpleasant and aged. I suppose the Oklahoma resort spoiled us.
No lodge area or kitchen, at least not that I found walking about in the multiple days we had booked here. Seriously I didn’t care about the water park, I saw the super great Sam rating similar to other great places and thought let’s stay here. It was on stop in many going across country and back again.
When we arrived we were told where to go, no escort like the many other places for a lot less money, again a minor thing except, when we got to our spot someone was parked in our spot. Long story short they foolishly parked and went onto water park for the day. We could not reach any live staff, so we found the free parkers and they graciously moved (all this was time consuming and not real pleasant) again a minor thing but these minor things start to add up and add up was what my massive bill was for an unpleasant RV Park, I mean “resort” - humor intended and not snarky meanness.
This is getting a little long and I am at another stop, another resort, except this one has free pool, nice facilities, kitchen, lodge, tv and other nice things like not smelly or not overflowing and convenient garbage bins. More than one, they are spoiling me in these non water park resorts. ??
