We drove down the road to this campground expecting to stay here for a night near the Okefenokee Swamp. Don't even try staying here. Heck, it was tough for us to turn around and get out. All spots look permanent and many are run down. Some look downright scary.
We stayed here after escaping Voyager RV Resort (nearby) and it was like a breath of fresh air. It is in the middle of a wide open area and it is very friendly. While nothing special, we were so pleased to be able to walk around and even go for a hike with our pet without anyone yelling at us, that I likely gave this one more star than it deserves. It is located near I-10, but not too close to hear noise. The mountains for hiking and sightseeing are about 30 minutes north. People are friendly. I don't remember what the WiFi was like, so I cannot comment on it. I would go back here again.
I felt like we were in an episode of the old British TV series, The Prisoner. There are rules, rules and rules. If you smile and follow the rules, you will be OK.
This park is NOT pet friendly, even though they allow pets. People with pets are allowed to walk down only certain roads, which is great for people who don't like pets and don't want to clean up after irresponsible owners, but heaven forbid if you are walking without your map and wander down a forbidden street. It is impossible to walk out of the park with your pet, because the entrance is a forbidden road. The pet walking areas are drainage ditches and if it has not rained for a while, they are awful.
The park advertises WiFi, but WiFi is an extra fee.
We were forced to pay extra for an oversized spot because our 17 ft TT had a slide out - rules are rules - even though we would have fit just fine in a standard spot.
But they smile with this full of teeth pseudo friendly grin when they tell you the rules and rules and rules.
Run away while you can.
Van Horn is in the middle of nowhere west Texas, but this is a nice campground. We would stay here again. In the morning, we were in a hurry but decided to eat breakfast in the little place at the campground. While the food was OK, the people running the place were overwhelmed by two tables, messed up our order and were angry with us. So next time, we will skip it.
There is a very good steak place in town, which was more than welcomed after a long day on the road trying to get out of west Texas.
My major complaint with any RV campground that is in the sand is that it gets tracked everywhere, especially into the RV. This is no exception. No matter how much we tried, we got sand everywhere. While there were some cement track for many spots, even they were nowhere level. It took us a while to level our TT. Bathroom / shower was clean, but old.
We did not stay here, but went to the nearby The Oaks at Point South, on the other side of the lake. We loved the facilities at this KOA and it is modern and clean. But the traffic noise chased us away. If you are sensitive to noise, try the more rustic "Oaks" but don't expect anything fancy there.
This was just OK. The restrooms / showers are run down and old looking, but clean. The main area had a TV room that was small and we were there during the Superbowl when a small group of people took it over, dang. But this park is more isolated and quieter than the nearby nicer KOA. So pick this one for quiet and primitive, or the KOA with traffic noise and a very nice setup.
This is by far the nicest RV park we could find near the east entrance of the Okefenokee Swamp. The people are nice, but not always easy to find. It is located near a major highway, but there is not much traffic, so it did not seem noisy. Our major complaint is that there is little water coming out of the shower heads. I don't know if this is by design or they are corroded shut, but next time we are bringing our own shower head and a wrench.
Nice, but the least friendly employees we ever met
This is a nice campground just north of Lake City. But the people employed by the park were the least friendly we ever met. Most people wave and smile when going around on their carts, but these people seemed to snarl, like everyone had a bad day. That just left a bad taste for us. The spots were good and the shower / toilet facilities were OK. WiFi was fine. Not a bad place to stay, but don't expect friendly.
This is waterfront and the RVs are really crammed in there. The park is sand and it gets tracked everywhere, especially into the RV. The people running the place turn over regularly and when we were there, they were nice, but the woman checking people in could only do one thing at a time, very slowly and got overloaded and frustrated. Our spot was a back-in and we faced the door to a pull-through spot which made it feel even more claustrophobic. There is not much of a beach as it is mostly mud, but there is a nice dock. The washers are household and if your stuff does not dry, you cannot extend the time. It is about 10 minutes from a small town that has restaurants and a grocery store. When we go back, we will try someplace else.
