Highway US36 across Kansas can be slim pickings for quality RV Parks. This is really a hidden jewel, but it is really hidden. This park, on the west side of Seneca is behind the Settle Inn Motel. This is a new, attractive hotel/motel which just happens to be in front of the RV park. There is no business connection, just neighbors.
Watch for the RV Park signs and turn into the first drive, not the motel.
This is a small park, 20+ sites, but all pull through, all full hook ups, and all concrete pads. It is clean, neat, and very well kept. The sites are long, we didn't unhook our tow.
The manger is not on site during the day, but does live there. He is down the street at another business. Register and pay by envelope in the slot. You pay for what you want. Wi-Fi and cable are extra.
The bathrooms are very big and very clean. The laundry is well equipped. The park is well lit at night and secure.
There are green lawns and a big decorative pond to walk around. And it all overlooks a golf course. The owner takes a lot of pride in what he has here and it shows.
No, this isn't a vacation spot, but it is a good overnight stop to relax and not worry. There is a Dollar General next door if you need to stock up, we do. And if you take an extra day Seneca is a very nice town with a lot of history and historic places.
We stay at the Cotton Gin RV park when we come and go from our Winter stay in West Texas. This is truly an oasis in the panhandle which tends to long, flat, open and with few choices.
The sites are all pull through and long enough to leave our tow vehicle hooked. The utilities are very convenient and hook up is easy. Wi-Fi was good, we used our satellite dome, I think they offer cable.
This is a small park but management is very friendly and will help you in anyway they can. We have stayed a couple of days but usually see people come and go just wanting a good night's rest before continuing.
The park is clean and very neat and orderly. The few permanents are tidy and no problem. Though you are out on the open plains there is a homey safe feeling here. Lots of lighting, even the pedestal lights all work and really brighten the place.
There is a nice office with a few necessities. The cotton gin itself is really big, almost cavernous, and very interesting to see and walk around. There is a small pool, though we only pass through in Fall and Spring.
The bathrooms are old but I have watched them cleaned every day and found them comfortable. The laundry is on the honor system. We used it just fine.
The Summers here are hot and dry. The owners do their best to have grass lawns, shade trees, and shrubs.
You could easily see their hard work. I walked our dog around the park every night with my wife and enjoyed all the hard work.
The highway and trains are nearby. There is some highway noise but it doesn't take away from the park. I like trains, particularly at night, so that was no problem for me.
We'll be back.
I'm staggered by the bad review on this site, almost makes me wonder if they got the wrong park. We spent last Winter at this park Nov-May and will be going back again.
This park is on the Llano River just inside the town of Junction about a 1/2 mile from the I-10 interchange.
Road noise is minimal, but the interchange is not in town and you'll hear "jake brakes". Some light pollution is also present.
This park has big-rig sites with stone patios, a pergola, lawn furniture, and grill. All sites are pull through and many are 30/50. There always seems to be sites for B & C size rv's but the diesel-pushers should probably make a reservation. The rv sites are all full-hook up with cable, wi-fi is good. The sites are leveled almost weekly. This is a very well maintained park.
The river offers fishing and kayaking or just enjoying. The park has a small pool and play lot for kids. There is a fenced dog run. The bathrooms are very typically old KOA but are cleaned daily and very comfortable. The laundry is new. The office has a small store with rv necessities and is nice to visit just for the fun of it.
The real asset here are the people. The resident managers are working hard every day to make this everything you need and want during your stay. The workkampers are obviously carefully chosen for people skills. What a great group! They all became our friends over the Winter and still are.
Two things mentioned: the park is gate code controlled if you arrive late just pull into overflow. You'll have power and a place to stay. Off I-10 head toward Junction, after crossing the bridge over the Llano be prepared to turn right at the foot of the bridge. It is not that hard.
The town is just down the road with a good grocery store, restaurants, and other shopping. It is a nice little town.
Not only is this a great RV Park, but it is the closest traditional RV Park to the City and NW Suburbs.
The sites are long and level and are mostly back-in. The rows are double but the rigs are not tail-to-tail because the sites are staggered like a checkerboard. Each utilities pedestal serves two RV's. The utilities are all full hook up and very convenient, hook up is easy. Each site has a picnic table, fire ring, and most have shade. All roads and sites are gravel, well packed and drains well, no dust.
The lack of grass at the sites is made up for by expansive lawns and fields of thick green grass. All this green is edged with flowers, shrubbery, and very professional landscaping. There are two spring fed lakes for fishing, small boats or swimming. The larger lake has a sand beach with someone in attendence and buoys around the swim area. Both lakes are bordered by walking paths and picnic tables. There are no RV sites ringing the lakes. Surprise! The area is really beautiful and the owners work hard to keep it that way. They live on site and this is definitely a family endeavor. Maintenance goes on constantly.
The bathrooms are very clean and large. The laundry is modern with industrial size machines. Wi-Fi is excellent probably the best we've seen. There is no cable but Rockford and Chicago are nearby for antennas. We are using our satellite dome.
This park is clean, quiet, orderly, and controlled. Anyone coming off the highway first encounters the office and you must check-in, even guests of campers. If you are enjoying this safe and quiet park then you can hardly complain about the rules. We are staying on a monthly rate and will be back.
