Mississippi River View!

I spent 7 days biking the Natchez Trace Parkway from North to South. River View RV Park was my reward. It was so refreshing to come to this park at the end of my journey! I had met a work camper, Tom, on an RV forum while planning my NTP ride. He told the staff about me and they were anticipating my arrival. They were all so very nice... and I got to meet Tom before he left! The sites were spacious. The view was incredible... like stepping back in time... loved how the bridge lit up at night. The small river walk took you to the Visitor's Center. My only complaint is that the hot tub felt more like bath water. My husband joked that in Louisiana they get in hot tubs to cool off... lol! I highly recommend this place!

Free!

Jeff Busby is one of 3 free campgrounds on the NTP, first come, first serve. The turn-outs from the sites were manageable, even with our 43 foot motorhome. It was very pretty! Can't beat free! Thanks Mississippi!

Impressive!

We stayed 3 nights and are returning soon for 2 weeks! It is a Class A only Resort! It is gated, nice ambiance with great lighting, landscaping, small lakes and fountains. The clubhouse is nice, complete with the nicest gym we've encountered and saunas. They also have a room with a massage table. There is a nice waterfall pool and a jacuzzi. The staff are also very friendly. I don't imagine they get a tremendous amount of travelers, such as us, as the sites are individually owned. Many owners rent their sites out when they are not there. Bella Terra manages them. It's conveniently located to shopping and only about 5 miles from the beach. Impressive!

A Frontier Experience

The owner is extremely nice and the rates are good. This is a decent place for a couple of nights, but our 3 weeks was way too long. There are a lot of residents in the park, friendly enough but not overly welcoming. The park is older. Laundry facility was good. Office, pool, clubhouse check... Horrible tv channels and reception and no cable that we were aware of... Gated but gate is rickety, turns a little tight, and had to ask someone to move their car so we could back in our site on our first day. The guy was not happy about it (thought maybe he was a Grumpy Dwarf character... Lol)... Then they started moving RV's into sites from the service center... Came back after a long day out to find they had sandwiched a fifth wheel between our site and the site next to us... Also, we had made an appointment with the service center to check out one of our air conditioners but they didn't show up... The park is not a detriment, but I certainly would not hesitate to try another place the next time.

Our Home when in Nashville

We stay here anytime we are in the Nashville area. I'd like to tell you that the place has gone downhill, that you better just move on... I'd like to tell you that because the secret is out and the place has become so darn popular. I'd like to tell you that, but I just can't. The truth is it is a wonderful place made wonderful by the people. I can't say enough good things about it (refer to my former Reviews). Until next time...

Perfect Overnight Stop!

Dallas NE Campground
Caddo Mills, TX
4 stars (Oct 4, 2016)

Dallas NE Campground will be our overnight stop anytime we are passing thru this area of Texas. It was very convenient to the interstate, and the staff were very accommodating. We snagged the last site that was available for the night. I failed to mention that I had a military ID card when checking in. During our conversation, that fact emerged and the host graciously refunded me $2.20 because they offer military discounts. The price was very reasonable.

From the looks of the property I believe it once was a KOA. The property was scenic with a 5 acre pond with catch and release fishing; plus I was able to get in a nice run around the pond (looped it several times for 4 miles). The campground had a nice pool and a basketball court, nice cabins, the best tent camping sites I've seen, a small camp store with basic supplies, a playground for kids, a swing hanging from a tree and a recreation hall. The RV sites were very long, spacious, and gravel. The campground did have quite a few permanent residents; however, the campground has rules enforce that keep the property well maintained. It would have been nice if they had cable, but not really a big deal.

Great customer service is always a win. Dallas NE Campground certainly scored points for that quality! The staff were personable, genuinely cared for the customers and took pride in the property, even relaying ways they plan to improve it. Thanks, Dallas NE Campground for a pleasurable stay! Until next time...

Hello Deer!

This "Resort" is a 3 star trying very hard to be a 2 star, in my opinion. The first impression was that we made a mistake, as the landscaping at the entrance is overgrown plus the roads are gravel and bumpy. The office gives you a map and no one directs you to your site. The resort was overpriced for what you got. If I'm paying $45 a night I expect full hook-ups, not to have to drain my gray tank in their open field or have the honey wagon come dump my black tank once a week. There were some sites with a lake view. However, our site sat across from all of the storage units. The only benefit to that was we had ample room to back in and it was a shaded site. Our rig barely fit into the site, there was rebar sticking up on the railroad ties around the site which could have punctured our tires had I not been diligent, and there was no room to park our Jeep at the site without impeding on what should have been your outdoor patio space. They have 2 pools, but I didn't see one person use them in the week we were there-- and it was hot! They have a nice decking area outside the office. The office has a lounge with a stacked stone fireplace. The bathhouse smelled musty but was clean, and the laundry facility appeared to be nice. There was a .85 mile loop that went along the lake and back up to the campground. I would walk down there to catch the sunsets, which was the best part about this campground. We also liked feeding the deer that would come to the open field behind our site--- some would eat from my hand. I had concluded that my original thought of a 2 star rating was now a 3 star. Then on the day of departure it had rained all night. So low and behold they closed the main path to exit because the gravel washed out creating erosion and a ditch. We had to make the next turn, which had we known would have taken a different route to exit because now it created a bad turning angle for our big rig and with low lying branches. Conclusion: bad first impression, improved impression during time of stay, bad last impression... Would not stay again.

A Worker's Campground

This park is good for an overnight but I would not hope for a longer stay. The pull-thru sites are not very long. We were only able to park our Jeep behind our rig because we had it disconnected, and even then it barely fit. The office staff were friendly and efficient. The facilities were clean. The pool was nice. The sites were close together and no patio space, plus the turns were tight. It also appeared to be a worker's campground, as there were a lot of TX plates and work trucks. We also happened to be the only Class A in the park. On the upside, we did get a 15% discount for being military, which was better than the Good Sam discount.

A Cajun Paradise in the Swamp!

Oh my! Where do I begin? This place exceeded all expectations. I do believe this is without a doubt the best resort at which we have stayed. Upon arrival, you pull under a very large covered entrance that is unlike anything we have encountered before! We arrived on a Saturday night, and as noted by other reviews it is a happening place on the weekends for sure. The song "Louisiana Saturday Night" comes to mind. On the flip side, it was practically our own private resort thru the week!

The resort is gated. Upon check-in you are given a waterproof bracelet (like a stylish hospital bracelet) to wear the entire time you are at the resort. I admit that I did not care for that practice; however, I guess I can understand why it is necessary.

There must be over 300 sites in this park!The sites are spacious enough, although the grassy areas around them can be a little swampy. The sites are concrete and we were able to park our 43' motor home and two vehicles side by side in front of it. Furthermore, there are some sites that are under covered areas (cost more and usually those that are more long term). Trash pick up is curbside.

The landscaping and grounds are beautiful. There's 2 large ponds with lots of ducks. Not to mention, the patrons and owner are very patriotic. This truly appealed to us as Eric is retired military and I worked for the Department of Defense. There are also decked out golf carts everywhere! (But it does cost extra if you have a golf cart and use it.)

The resort had several bath houses, a very nice laundry facility, a game room, a gym, a theater, an inside gathering area, an outdoor lounge, a miniature golf course, and the best part-- the pool!

The pool deserves its own paragraph. There was a dance area for when they have a band or DJ. There was a lazy river hot tub. The pool was a lazy river with a swim up bar, complete with underwater bar stools. Patrons could order food (not thru the week). There was a gigantic kiddie pool with many cool water features and a pirate ship, plus a twin water slide. The ambiance at night was astounding with the music and lights.

The resort was also convenient to Lafayette and area restaurants. We went to Avery Island and toured the Tabasco Factory. I also heard that Cajun Food Tours is a great thing to do, although we ate at Prejean's instead.

Some reviews I read complained that the price was too extravagant. However, I believe the price was reasonable for the experience you get here. I've certainly paid more for much less in the past. If you're a hermit, this is not the place for you. Personally, I loved it-- despite all of the purple and gold!

It's Like Fireworks

Another nice stay... Love being so close to the water, and the use of the amenities at the Ramada... Nice pool also here in the park, warm and relaxing... Enjoyed the fireworks display that they do on Wednesday nights at the beach but you can see them from the park and they only last about ten minutes... This is our second time staying here (refer to my March review)... Just as nice second go around
