Amen brother!! I stayed there about 12 years ago, $90 a night and they put me in a mud puddle.

Failure to plan on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.

Review sites seem to agree.

Maybe Trailer Trash was invented in the Lone Star State?


What State gets your vote?
With all the information available on parks there is no one to blame but...

OP-sorry you feel that way. We are in Bluebonnet Ridge, Terrell TX right now and itís beautiful. Thatís east of DFW. We also like Oak Creek, Weatherford TX-just west of DFW. I can name @ least a dozen other very nice parks off the top of my head and thatís just the tip of the iceberg.

I have stayed there for a year at Golden Village Palms RV Resort in Hemet, Ca. and have now left. Most RV Parks offer an Off Season rate and a On Season rate, not this place. You pay a high price for not only a site but also for Electric. Saying they cater to the Canadians would be an understatement. They turned off the electric at least 3 times in the middle of Summer when it was over 100 F for maintenance. The water also. Washers and dryers are terrible, takes all day to wash and dry, better to go next door. Have seen people wash their clothes and dogs in the shower. There are thieves that hop the fence and steal bikes or break in storage containers. Not only did they raise the rent $60.00, but also charge $60.00 PER dog PER month. For Hemet? This is not lake Tahoe or the beach. Seen alot of loose dogs there. Rumor is that they have decided to drop it down to $30.00 a month per dog. There are alot of rules of which they don't enforce and some that they seem to make up as the day goes. There is no AED in the Gym, so don't drop dead there. There is 2 gates, but the back one is locked, great exit plan if there is a fire. Look at these pics as they claim no rigs over 10 years old allowed there. There are aot of old rigs and Park Models there. And this is supposed to be a major resort? I would not recommend this place unless you have deep pockets. Most of the folks there are friendly, management isn't.

We were there 11 yrs ago, wasn't the best, wasn't the worst place we stayed at. What I remember the most was the questionable businesses in the area...

Love Texas

We spent two weeks this spring in Austin & san Antonio following the final four. Loved every RV park and a few of them were resorts. Of course we have always used RV Park Reviews to help us select where we stay.

We were there just three weeks ago for five days,all other camp grounds in the area were booked.Our reservations were made four months in advance,we had no choice but stay at Niagara camp ground.We did have to go buy rubber boots for the water and mud.There were only about fifteen spots occupied in the whole place while we were there,pretty sad.

we haven't yet been to a lot of places but did make a trip to Alaska I can say most of the privet C/G were not very nice they were nicely laid out but upkeep was terrible one we stayed at the neighbors sewer hose went in under our picnic table, and ours went over to the other neighbors yard area. some were just downright horrible. Canada was about the same for privet C/G. we stayed in a few gov. C/G and they were nice. I will have to say here in Oregon were I live there are some rough privet C/G .I think everybody has them.

We have stayed at a lot of campgrounds in Texas when heading west. They aren't our primary destination, usually just an overnight. But we try to find something nice, level, and close to our travel route. Here's a few that we like. Bluebonnet in Terrell, Texas Star in Weatherford, Coyote RV in Wichita Falls, Amarillo Ranch in Amarillo, Fernbrook RV in Longview. These are all nice and in Texas.
