Very tight quarters driving down through the park to the spots, not impossible, just tight. You can tell the owner just put money into the restroom facilities as the showers appear to be newer. Operator is quite friendly and a proud Buckeye!

Nice being able to walk down to the river for some peace as well as the lower Sequoia NP office is very close. If you plan on getting to Grant's Grove understand that it will be a very tough drive through the park from here or an longer drive around the park to the more northern entrance.

nice level lots. Ours was a back in and it offered a nice view of (extremely low) Lake Mead. Inside of the recreation area. Very close to Hoover dam. Restrooms looked as though the last few patrons had had a rough go of it and broke some things.

Was a nice spot to stay for an evening on the way out to California. Pretty warm (but it is the desert), very little shade. If you need to stock your cooler, they offer block ice inside, I advise this as it will last much longer than cubes in your coolers. Great idea to carry it and we really appreciated it.

Grand Canyon Trailer Village RV Park

Easy to navigate the park and the sites were nice and level where we were. The bathrooms in trailer village are just that, bathrooms. No shower or laundry facilities. The next campground over has a full set up with showers and laundry. 2 minute drive or a free bus ride.

The appeal of this site is great! While it is set up as a trailer facility, it doesn't resemble a parking lot that many commercial sites you see along the highways. Plenty of trees and greenspace. We had elk walking around the park during the day.

This park is part of the National Park Shuttle system, meaning that you can catch the Blue shuttle from trailer village and it will take you along half of the South Rim facilities of the National Park. From there you can catch both the Orange and Red lines (all free with admission to the park)

I will definitely stay here again at some point in my life!

Great level and spacious gravel lots. Bathrooms/showers were in great shape. Very easy to get to from the interstate as well as easy to navigate once you arrive.

Staff was extremely friendly. The gentleman who was closing the facility the night we arrived stayed a bit later than he was supposed to in order to get us checked in when rain slowed us down at Petrified Forest NP.

Excellent stay and if we find ourselves in AZ again we'll most likely stay here again.

Check-in was very easy and having the staff drive us straight to the site was great. Location is easy to get to from the highway.

The facilities themselves are great. From the laundry facility to the restroom/showers, to the pool, to the continental breakfast in the morning we had zero complaints.

They were in fact very nice and took the time to find out we had two small boys with us and found us a site right near the playground (which was fenced in and nice as well).

The only take away that was negative for us, was the lack of greenspace between the sites, but again it is basically an arid climate but it seemed a little like a parking lot in places.

We staged a family reunion at this park. We rented three cabins together. For their size, the cabins really do offer a lot of amenities. With the theme and activities available on site we were able to keep 7 kids under 14 entertained plus with the location of the play area we could watch most of the activites from our front porches.

The staff was extremely helpful and cordial.

The location is great, right off the highway and then fairly close to Mammoth Cave National park as well as other caving sites in the area.

(on a side note, if you stop here you have to try the bourbon fudge sold at Chaser's(?) on the road to the interstate)

Caprock Canyons

Without a doubt one of the best destinations we've been. The facilities are great. The local wildlife is amazing (bison, mule deer, etc). The access into the canyon is great, and the views themselves are incredible. Having been to the Grand Canyon in AZ, I didn't think that Caprock would impress me and as far as depth and size it doesn't, comparatively. But at Caprock you are able to walk straight into the canyon. The colors are vibrant and in your face. The color changes due to the time of day are remarkable. In fact, from an artistic approach, the abundance of yellow sunflowers, coupled with the reds/creams of the canyon, and the clear, texas blue of the sky make for excellent photography.

If I ever find myself going through North Texas again, I will definitely be back to this site and the state park.

In all fairness, we stayed very near after the dam and river overflowed, covering much of the lower part of the park so in terms of visual appeal, there wasn't much to see.

Facilities are excellent. The bathrooms are some of the best you'll see on the road. There are private shower booths completely apart from the bathrooms themselves. Laundry was just as good. There's a little general store on site so no real need to head into town. The game room is also very good.

The sites themselves appear to all be pull through, level, and concrete. Very nice. Although it makes your pop-up appear quite small. Ha!

I have to give the 3-star mainly due to location. While the set-up itself is top-notch, it is situated right on a very active railway as it is the north-south crossing of the Red River into Texas.

As a preface, my family has been staying at this location since I was a child in the early 80's. I have to point out that over the years, the site itself has only gotten better. They have had a few expansions over the years and each time the campsite is able to accommodate more and more campers. While most sites that they are adding are back ins, they are extending down the river so that you're not getting further away from the fishing.

This location is below the Greer's Ferry Dam which provides cooler temperatures than the surrounding area year round. When we were there in early July, we didn't have to run the a/c hardly at all due to the fact that the river water is fed off of the bottom of the lake and provides almost a blanket of 60 degree air, in fact at night we were donning our light jackets and getting close to the fire.

The location is great if you're there after the Rainbow that are stocked in the river from the nearby hatchery. You can literally walk down from any site to the river's edge. If fishing isn't your whole family's goal, you can go up top to the lake to enjoy swimming, boating, etc as well as foray's into heber springs to see the old Hot Spring baths or even the location of the last major speech he gave prior to JFK's assassination in November of '63.

The newer bathroom facilities are great and well-maintained. There are playground and pavilion spaces. There constructed stairs, bridges, and paths that take you down to the river.

I agree, looking through the rose-colored glasses of memory I may be overlooking blemishes, but my wife and small children also had a blast and didn't seem to have any complaints of note.

(If you are going for the fishing, you need to watch the weather leading up to the time you go, if there are heavy rains for extended periods, the dam will have to release water near constantly to keep the lake levels safe.... should that be the case, you will have much reduced fishing as the speed of the current and the height of the water will prevent all but the most dedicated angler.

Great service by the operators of the site. From the initial reservation set down to final goodbyes after our stay, the operators were extremely respectful and friendly. At one point even providing the batteries out of one of their personal electronics in order to run a string of lights we use as a nightlight for the kiddos.

The layout of at least our section of the park is great for even novice campers (of which I was at that time), providing pull-through and mostly level sites even for the pop-ups like we have. The bathroom facilities may be a bit aged, but are kept very clean and well-lit. Insofar as contained playgrounds, they are limited to a swingset.

If you are there to see Mammoth Cave National Park, the location is excellent. You are just a few minutes away from the park itself as well as other caving sites around the area. Location also has you close to several of the local entertainment sites like ziplining, go-carts, etc.

Overall we were quite pleased with our stay and on our pass through the area we will most likely stay here again.
