The place is clean, but it is behind a trailer park, the Wi-Fi is very slow, there are trains very close by the call and there's also an airport close by. The staff are very helpful. The cabins are nice and block out the noise. But tents are placed closest to tracks. Two showers in bathrooms, but clean.
Shop was well stocked and had a variety of fun items ranging from Texas Wine to Route 66 novelty items. Bathrooms were older but well maintained and clean. Staff was friendly. There is a lot of fun decorative iron to look at. The camp-sights themselves were not that nice. Overall this is a good place to spend one night.
This campground was very nice in lots of ways: friendly staff, clean, convenient facilities, affordable supplies, an old-school type playground that our kids loved, and easy access off the highway. We enjoyed our time there.
However, there are things that were not great, as well: the surrounding location (largely industrial) was rough, with an unsavory trailer park immediately next door, as well as an airport &
train tracks very nearby, leading to lots of noise, especially overnight. The tent sites had little to no shade and the ground was so hard that we had to buy a hammer to put in tent stakes.
This was a suitable stopover on a long road trip, but not a place I’d go out of my way to stay.
Great place to stay! Super clean facilities, nice pool, and very friendly n HELPFUL staff!!
