We really wanted to like this park, it has great reviews and a decent location.
I will start with the good parts of our experience.
Easy to find, good access, wide driveways/roads, brand new facilities. The dog park (more like a dog run) was very large and well kept. We did not use the bath house or laundry facility, but the both looked nice. Water pressure was excellent and the concrete site was level. The location was both good and horrible at the same time. Close enough to arbuckle wilderness, turner falls, and a couple of other attractions. Keep reading for the down side.
Now, for the not so good.
We changed our reservation length before our arrival, because of the weather forecast. The staff, which was somewhat helpful, said we would have to go through “RoverPass”. Keep in mind we tried to work with them up to this point and have not had much luck. We finally got a reply from RoverPass, saying the park still had us checked in and leaving on the 23rd. That’s funny, because we checked out on the 22nd. Definitely will not be using RoverPass again.
The lady who checked us in was very direct and to the point, not much more. She wasn’t rude or disrespectful, just wasn’t very pleasant.
My kids and wife quickly found their way to the play ground, while I was setting things up. We have 2 year old twins and 2 older preteens. This playground was acceptable for the older kids, but DEFINITELY NOT for a 2 year old.
The worst part about this park is the close proximity to a very active railroad. By active I mean, active at all times of the day and night. You can only imagine what this was like with 2 year old twins.
The crappy’est part of the park was the sewer dump was actually right at the same height or just above the dump valves on our 5’er. This provided to be rather challenging.
One other frustrating thing (more confusing really). They sell firewood, but do not have fire pits...
We enjoyed our stay at this park in October 2017. It is a new park so there are pluses and minuses.
First the negative - the trees have not yet grown up, but once they do it will be lovely. Right now it appears to be a parking lot when seen from the main road, but looks can be deceiving.
The layout is awesome! They have enough turning radius for the largest of rigs, even with toads. The sites are far enough apart that you can open your slides without worrying about covering a neighbors picnic table. Nearly every site is pull-thru with level concrete pads. Water pressure and power were never an issue, despite being in a rural area.
The restrooms are clean, brand new and spacious.
The staff was super friendly and helpful.
But the best part was the Wifi. Even with a fairly full campground everyone was streaming video without buffering.
We will be staying there again!
This place is the bomb diggity!!! Immaculate beautiful grounds, quiet, pet area is extremely safe to let your fur babies exercise and potty. Showers, laundry room and restrooms in stand alone building if you need it. We pulled in, hooked up and had dinner outside at the clean picnic table right outside our door. I would highly recommend this resort.
We stayed here twice now, once over Memorial weekend and again 2 weeks later. It is nice to have a large dog park for the dogs to play at. The kids loved the pool and the playground. Everything is well kept and clean. All of the staff is very friendly. They had a special things going on over Memorial weekend for the kids. My son caught his first fish at the little lake, but it is the only fish we caught and the only one we have seen caught there. Steps or a bridge from the campground area to the playground and pool would be a nice addition. We will be returning here for sure.
very nice facility, exceptional dog park, friendly hosts. park is new and is being well maintained. arrived monday afternoon after a busy holiday weekend and the park was pristene. returned the following week with the same experieince. had a nice paved, level pull thru spot near the dog park and bath/laundry. viewed deer and coyote at different times in distance.
The was our 2nd stay. Came for a quick getaway for the holiday weekend. It was just as wonderful as our first. Cannot say enough about this place, the staff and the owners. Looking forward to our next visit,
We stayed here for two nights in May,2017. The park is beautiful. There is a nice dog park if you are traveling with furry family members. The sites are mostly pull thru sites. It just so happened that we were caught in a tornado warning and severe thunder storm during our stay. I'm so glad this property had a storm shelter. The staff was amazing and they have employees that live onsite. We arrived and received a nice schedule of activities for the family like arts and crafts and an all day pool party and hot dog roast. We cant wait to visit again.
2nd stay was great just like last one. This time we had our club down. Park has great layout, very clean, would recommend this park and will be back.
There is trains nearby you hear some, but did not bother us.
Worth the trip to stay at this park.
We stopped at By the Lake to and from Houston. The park is brand new with concrete pads and a large dog park. The bathrooms and showers are very, very nice. The laundry is more than adequate. There aren't too many campers here but it is March!
The park is very easy to get to and it's very easy to find your assigned site.
The people at the front desk are extremely helpful and very nice.
Since it is such a new park there are not mature trees but in a few years shade will be here!
The pool is very pretty but it was too cold to swim in March.
We will definitely return when traveling south!
This was our first RV Trip Park, had a great time. Newer park, not many people, weekend trip. The Park was excellent, clean, and very easy to get to, huge dog run, our dogs loved it. The mangers/staff were helpful, friendly. Yes, we will be back, and recommend this park to others.
Awesome! Friendly, attentive owners/staff. Impressive check-in lodge, Pool. Fenced dog run -- large! Concrete pull-thru with grass, trees planted for shade. Stocked lake on site and close to state park. Will stay here again and encourage you to make your reservations now. This place will be THE PLACE to get into in a couple years -- become familiar with it NOW. We SO enjoyed our stay. Thank you!
This a great rv park, very nice layout, has asphalt roads with concrete pads with patios and tables. New park, not much shade yet as they have new trees planted. Things for kids, loved the game room. Have pool, fishing pond. Bathrooms are awesome, very nice tiled showers.
On site mangers were GREAT, very helpful and friendly. Was easy to find off I-35 and exit # 24. Some trains nearby, but would not stop us from returning. Good Wi-Fi and cable. Nice dog park very large surrounded by 6ft fence.
Would recommend this park in heartbeat.
This RV resort is excellent. We stayed for 3 nights. It is very easy to get to - both the park & individual site. Great signage on the interstate & to the RV resort. Exceptionally clean and well kept. Entire staff is helpful & friendly from reservation to checkout. We didn't have children or pets with us, but this is a good place to bring both. We will stay here again when in the area.
