"Beautiful park, beware GPS"

We have a state park pass and a spot with elec and water was $23 for 2 nights. Now for the GPS warning. We were headed south on 59 and our GPS had us get...

"Clean and needed a stop"

"Lovely"

Deer in the campground. Lots of beautiful trees. Friendly camp host. Walking trails, oh and the donkeys! Only downside: the bathrooms were not particularly clean or well-maintained. I opted not to shower there, though it was nice that a shower was available.

"Favorite! Love this place. "

This is a working cattle ranch, and a is a mountain bikers destination. The property has 8-9 miles of bike trail. But this property only has a few RV hookups; and only one with sewer. The hookup with sewer is the only 50amp- (The Pen). The rest are 30amp & no sewer. BUT, It’s quiet, secluded, peaceful and absolutely gorgeous. Even on days when...
