Directly Off I-10
This campground is located directly off I-10. As you make a left into the campground there is a nice little winding road that leads you up to a small office you check in at.
The office is extremely small and there are no items for sale. It is for check in’s only. Once checked in you are handed a map to your site. The roads and sites are marked clearly so finding your site is relatively easy.
The roads are a combination of packed dirt and gravel. There are many uneven spots. There are basically 3 main sections that you can group the sites together in.
The first section is on the left side of the office. You will need to enter the park and travel around to the right and around the park for this section as the roads are one way. This section is located under numerous pine trees. The second section is located behind the clubhouse. These sites are fairly quiet and located near the catch and release pond. There are a few trees that you can park under. The last section is in the back of the park and is a wide-open area. There are little to no trees.
All sites are full hook up but are very close together. On our site, when we opened our awning it was inches from our neighbor. The cable tv was ok but there were some fuzzy channels. The one thing that was awesome about this park was the wifi. I have not seen wifi this good at any park we have been to so far. As a side note, some of the wifi cables were above the ground so as cars drive over them I would have to think that over time the cables would get damaged. I believe there were plans to bury them but in the two months we were there, they only threw some dirt over them.
There is a small laundry room. It was always clean and the machines all worked the entire time we were there. There were garbage cans located throughout the park that were emptied every day. There was a dog park located near one of the catch and release ponds.
Shuffleboard & Horseshoes
There are well-manicured shuffleboard courts and horseshoe pits. You can get the horseshoes and shuffleboard sticks and discs from the office. Right before we left, we received a flyer stating they were going to start serving breakfast on Saturday mornings which would be a nice touch.
One of the nicest things about the park was the clubhouse. Inside the clubhouse, there were couches, chairs, a large screen TV, 2 clean restroom/showers, cold/hot water cooler, and complimentary coffee and cookies. There was a nice porch with chairs and small tables where you can sit and relax with your cup of coffee.
High Traffic Noise
This park would be a really nice park if it were not for a few issues. The first being the closeness of the sites. The next issue is the location of the park itself. It is located right next to the entrance ramp to I-10. Although you can somewhat hear the traffic on I-10 you can really hear the cars and trucks on the entrance ramp as they accelerate. We had tried to watch TV outside once but were not able to hear the TV due to the traffic.
The last thing, which is not a make/break deal is a pool. It would be a nice feature.
All-in-all this park is fine for an overnight stay. Since it’s right next to I-10 it’s a great stopover for the night. Easy in, easy out and right back on the interstate the next day.
