Date of Stay: February 23, 2010
Weather During Stay: Cold and rainy.
Site Description: We were in site 80, a long pull-through facing the office and park entrance. All 125 sites in this park are just the same: the parking area is a narrow concrete slab with a small attached patio with picnic table. Grass borders each site - this time of year, deep, muddy tire tracks attest to the perfect aim needed to maneuver onto the narrow slab. Sites are level, roads are paved. All sites have FHU, 30/50 amps.
The office includes a sparsely stocked “store”, and there is a small pool adjacent, with patio chairs. I didn’t check the laundry room. Two treadmills are squeezed into a tiny library.
Phone/radio/TV: Great Verizon service for phones and aircard. Basic, 13-channel cable TV is provided, as is free WiFi - and nice, strong signal where we are, near the office. No obstacles for our satellite TV; we didn’t check the antenna. NPR on 91.3.
Elevation/landscape/Terrain: This is a flat campground not much above sea level. Views are of neighboring RV’s and the park buildings, with Interstate 10 not so far away. Well-maintained grass and common areas.
Lighting/noise: Lots of tall streetlights in this park, but they are pleasingly dim. Not too bad. Noise from I-10 would be a major annoyance with the windows open. On a cold, rainy night, it was not an issue.
Hiking/Walking: Laps around the park - or walk on the new treadmills.
Comments: This park makes a convenient stop along I-10. With the Camp Club USA discount, the price is reasonable for the amenities. This is our third stay - once again, one night and we are on our way. This year, unusually rainy, the paved streets and concrete slabs are much appreciated. If you like BBQ, don’t miss Willy Ray’s, a 5-6 mile drive into Beaumont.
