Golden Pond RV Park Shirley Sheila & Donald from England Review
Golden Pond RV Park Shirley Sheila & Donald from England Review
This is a good RV park, the reception on the entrance is reassuring and the reception staff are proficient and professional and polite, we were booked in as RPI members paid $82.88 for the 5 nights and we were shown an to our pitch which was most welcome with our 40 foot RV we were satisfied with our pitch it was a pull through (there are about 10) we were given a double pitch and we weren't under the trees which we prefer but the hardcore standing is made up the of large stones making it awkward to walk on, the services were 30 or 50 amp water & sewer and well located for the RV. The site is landscape and looked clean and tidy but there was dog mess around the grass areas and the permanent campers we're not good at cleaning up after their dogs and the fact they had no poo bags with them. We had to take a bag out to a guy with his two dogs who had just dumped on our pitch and we were not impressed with the dog owners who definitely spoiled this site.
Facilities are near by there is shower block, laundry and a BBQ hut on site which did good meals during the day. The wifi is good here and across the site and free so we can get emails and downloads but phone coverage a bit hit and miss. TV coverage was by cable so was OK we got 22 stations, there are shops close by and lots around to visit. We think this is a good site as a stop over and if you chose a front pitch near the road probably be better, we would be happy to recommend this site and to stay here again but not happy about the dog owners.
Casino Queen RV Park St Louis by Don & Sheila touring from England
Access to the site is a little scary as there are a number of flyover bridges to go under, they look low but were 15 foot on the one that was labelled and our RV at 12.4 foot we fitted under them OK. There was a lot of road works in the area so it looks a bit run down but there good sign to RV Park just before the Casino Queen complex, so take it slow and you see the turn, we had to back up because l was looking at the Casino. The actual camp site is all hard standing with good access for the large RVs and the staff we're really helpful. We got Good Sam discount and the site has good facilities, shower block, laundry if you need them, pitches have 20 30 & 50 amp, cable TV, water & sewer, also excellent Wifi available across the site and good download speeds. Excellent view of the St Louis Arch from the campsite, also very good security with regular checks overnight and there is a Shuttle service to take you across to the casino which is also close to the metro for travel. We stayed 2 nights and loved the site for being clean & tidy with good access into St Louis. There are train tracks next to the site and it can be noisy at night with the train whistles but we didn't mind it as we like the sound. Casino was good for meals and a lovely building we don't gamble so we didn't play the machines but enjoyed the atmosphere. Great campsite to stay on for visiting St Louis we would be happy to stay here again.
The Horseshoe Campsite covers a 290 acre preserve and it has 125 site pitches and there are 11 lakes here set aside for fishing and boating. From the camping side the pitches are very tight for access with the trees, also some of the roadways were a little uneven and not really suitable for large RVs, at one point the slope was so steep that We really had to just creep along and allow the RV to adjust to the uneven slope without rocking. Most of the sites are not that level obviously the best ones have been taken by the permanent campers although even some of these seemed tight. For a quick short stay the site was acceptable but we wouldn't want to be here for a longer stay, there was no where we could sit outside our RV as the site was a little muddy in some areas the gravel was worn out and breaking down. We have probably been spoilt by the better sites we stayed at over the past months and being in among the trees is not our favourite location. The TV coverage was better we had 11 stations to choose from and we could get the news, also telephone was good, free Wifi only at the community buildings & was slow for downloads. We TT members so have paid for the year so we don't pay on the sits.
We enjoyed 5 days stay on this lovely site well payed out great staff and friendly full timers. We visited Chicago for 2 days taking a taxi to Harvard Rail Station we have elite TT membership so we don't pay as we purchased full membership for year. We stayed in our 40ft RV good access we had a back in pitch 95 next to main building to get the free wifi. We had post delivered here as well. Recommend this site would stay again.
We had a walk around our new site here at Caboose Lake named after the railway car on a freight train, used chiefly as the crew's quarters and usually attached to the rear of the train and here on this site we found 4 Caboose Railway cars and lots of US railway memorabilia. It's a lovely site well laid out with good space between pitches and excellent wifi. We stayed by the lake furthest from i65 road traffic noise wasn't to bad and we stayed 2 nights and found the staff to be lovely and helpful. Good security we felt really secure here and found the site to be peaceful. We used it as stop over for our trip to Chicago. Would stay again!
Three Flags RV Resort
We spent 21 days at the Three Flags Resort in Florida during June 2016 and enjoyed our time there, the site is really suitable for RVs with easy to access pull through pitches, some of which are below tall trees. 50 amp supplies are available on some pitches and 30 amp on others, access into the site is excellent off the route 44 at Wildwood and with easy access to I-44 and local shopping within 2 miles.
The camp site has a good swimming pool area with outside shower and good rest rooms which can be used as changing rooms the pool area is well maintained and us next to the reception office where there is a good video library free of charge. TV reception is not good unless you have a satellite system and there no cable TV available on the site.
There is laundry facilities on site and a large community centre with a games area but has an age restriction on the pool tables, outside mini-golf pitch & put area and a shuttle board area which is good fun and a hard court tennis area. During out stay we had Tropical Storm Colin hit the site with 2 days of rain but the site did not flood and coped well with the rainfall. The pitches are mainly grass on a sand base there are a few hard standing concrete pads but not that many. We enjoyed this camp site it was very peaceful and the wardens were always busy looking after the site, which is well maintained and popular with many guests returning year after year, the site is well placed for reaching attractions in Orlando.
