This was our first visit to this annex of Ponderosa State Park in 3 years. There have been a few 'improvements' including new aluminum picnic tables and new site number posts, but its pretty much the same as we saw it in 2020.
It is a FCFS...
The park was not anywhere close to capacity in late June when we called a day before our stay. The nice lady who manages the park, Crystal, was very helpful in that she would keep a spot for us without a cc for security. Upon arrival, Crystal...
Picked this park over another one a little further away from the Plaza to be closer in. At first glance once we got settled in, we thought that this was a good location and a nice park, just 4 miles to downtown. However, we felt differently...
There are not a lot of RV camping choices around Brownfield. In fact, I think you have Buggies, and you have Coleman Park. We looked at Coleman Park, and thought - no thank you -, and then we doubled back to Buggies.
There was a warm...
Not much for aesthetics, but it's off the highway enough where you can't hardly hear the traffic. The short road in is kinda of rough, but the road through the campground is smooth river rock gravel.
The managers were extremely nice and...
The roads going into the park are crooked and narrow. The road coming from the east especially so. I recommend coming in from the west.
Nice park! Nice little lake! There is a 20 site full hook-up campground, and 4 tent sites that are...
This park is managed by the concessionaires, PisgahAdventures.com who have some of the best people I've ever dealt with in a federal government campground. Like a bonehead, I reserved a site without services, and the park has a 4 hour limit on...
I'm prejudiced against commercial RV parks. That's the truth of it. I would much rather use a federal, state, county, city park, or BLM land over just about any commercial property.
Like many commercial parks, spaces are tight here. You get...
This is a great location and facility. We prefer state, county or federal campgrounds over most commercial parks, but North Beach is an exceptional park. It is across the A1A from the beach. They have 2 restaurants, one on the beach and one on...
I wished that Idaho would use Texas as a model for how to manage State Parks. Idaho views their State Parks as just another hand out for money, and so they don't want to spend much on them. In fact, Idaho doesn't want to spend much money period! ...
