I did not stay overnight just did a drive-thru. I was not overly impressed with this campground. The rv sites are very tight you can share salt with your rv neighbor through the slide-out windows to one another. The park is very crowded. For even the Good Sam cost to stay at this park @ $33 per night, I can find other places with better aesthetics for half that cost.
Stopped at Park Ridge RV Campground for an overnight stay. Lady in the off was extremely nice and very helpful in the check-in process. Park is located in a Pecan Orchard with nice large pecan trees providing plenty of shade. Park has gravel roads and sites that are level and well maintained by the owners. Had been dry so pretty dusty when driving on the roads. 50A, Water, Sewer and Cox cable TV provided. We could tell the owners are working on upgrades throughout the park. Would definitely stay here again.
The sites are very close together and small yards are shared. Our slides and the neighbor in back are only a couple of feet apart. There is very little space to play or walk around. There is some grass in yards and gravel on roads and sites. There is shade and fishing in creek. The trash cans are full, only one dumpster near the entrance. There is trash in common areas throughout the park. There are ticks crawling around on the seating near the creek. There is a small playset, but no rec hall, no pavilion, no outdoor games as listed on the Good SAM website. No clubhouse, no place to play other than small playset--no fields, etc. There is a men's room and ladies room. The laundry room has only 3 washers and 4 dryers. The lady who checked us in was kind and helpful. We have seen her working and construction on a bathhouse, but no other work other than mowing/weed eating. Trash pickup and cleaning are desperately needed. There is much construction equipment, lawn equipment and seemingly abandoned vehicles parked all around, taking up precious space. Too tight on lot spaces and too little room to roam. Our neighbors stay out late drinking. Some campers are exceptionally run down and many have extra tents, etc. near them. There seems to be a mix of those who work all day and others who do not so much (not stay at home parents, just seem not employed). The place is ok but needs cleaning up and restrictions on RV condition/appearance. It is overpriced given the lack of space and cleaning and few amenities (no clubhouse or pool). As I write this, I've been hearing a dog yapping for about an hour. Handing out rules like quiet time, etc. and enforcing them would be a good start for improvement of this RV park. It's fair, but I would not recommend it if there are better options available.
Nice location-but that is all that is nice. Two channels on cable tv. Congested roads-parked cars block exit. Delapidated hookups. Intermittent Internet. The bathrooms are one half of step above an out house...they are filthy, they smell, toilet doors are missing, and they are falling apart. GoodSam, if you read this, take this campground off your list until the bathrooms are brought up to standards - your ratings of this place are a joke.
We only stayed one night as this campground is absolutely terrible. We had planned to stay several days while travelling though the area but decided against it after seeing the campground, we would not have stayed one night but it was late and we were exhausted. The restrooms and showers were filthy, some of the lightbulbs were out but there was enough light to see that you wouldn't want to use them! The grounds were unkempt and weedy. Worst campground we have stayed in after all our years of camping - GoodSam needs to take another look at how they are rating this campground!
Worst RV campground ever! Pot holes/dirt roads. Two old filthy showers. WI Fi does NOT work. Sites not even numbered. Can't believe this passed a Good Sam standard. What good is a rating system if we get this crap?
This campground is located under very pretty established pecan trees and has the potential to be a real gem. Unfortunately it looks like it was built 25-30 years ago and the have not repaired, cleaned or updated a thing since. What a shame.
We always check Good Sam ratings and this campground had high marks, including a 9 rating for the bathroom/showers. In all our travels this is one of the worst....a 0 or 1 rating would be a fair honest appraisal.
The grounds are unkempt and it just looks junkie. For example, they have a covered shelter for campers use and it has a dirty old lawn tractor and dirty trailer parked under it. There is a lot of old equipment and general stuff sitting around....most people would simply describe it as junk.
The lady manager was extremely nice and helpful and provided lots of info about things to see and do. However, the check-in office was kind of a messy pit.
This place could be beautiful with a lot of attention and cleaning. I would advice that you look at other options and put no trust in the G.S. ratings.....in this case they are totally wrong. I would not use the shower/bathroom under any circumstances.
Trust me......look at other options.
I agree with the others , plus play ground had equipment in it, just a lot of stuff struin all over, The toilet must seldom be cleaned ,still had ----stuck to the sides . flood my foot the leaves were blowing around inside ,clean the place up and add some lights so a person can see in there. pleasant staff, nice quite nights rest ,were self contained
Men's room lights over washroom sink area were out, toilet was filthy, showers dirty, shower head emitted little water. TV reception poor-very snowy. Inside cover of electrical box not attached to the box. One picnic table for 2 rigs. Heavy equipment around campground did not enhance the entrance. Heavy weeds in flower bed at immediate entrance. Location was excellent-Walmart, Lowes, Advanced Auto, restaurants within 2 mi.
We stayed here Sept 10th and I picked this location because the bathroom rating was a 9 and let me tell you maybe a -9 it was the most disgusting Good Sam's Campground Bathroom I have ever been to and we have been traveling since November, 2014 until now and have done over 20,000 miles and have stayed a plenty of RV Parks. I voiced my concern with the lady there and her excuse was that they had a flooded in May and that they were going to build new bathhouses next month, but that's no excuse not to keep these clean.(Very disappointed)
The pecan orchard created a nice setting. However,
I felt this was more of a very long term camping park than a travelers park. Many very old campers with lots of "stuff" which was very distracting.
The bathrooms really needed attention and the laundry room was hardly usable.
I can't see me staying again.
Older park in a nice setting, plenty of shade. Restroom/shower facilities show wear, but clean. Had good voltage on 50A with 2 ACs running. Easy I40 access, close to exit for quick over nights. Very nice owners, will definitely stay again.
