Trail and I enjoyed our stay at Hickory Ridge Golf & RV Resort. We had the good fortune to be parked right next to the main office where the store, laundry, and restrooms were located. All of these were nicely appointed, better than your average RV park. We were also close to the pool, but we didn’t partake. It was the sort that is too small and shallow for actual swimming, more just a place to cool off and splash about.
The RV park is divided up into two long strips on either side of the road. If you are not as lucky as we were, it’s a bit of a walk to get to the amenities the park offers. On the plus side, there is plenty of parking so you could just drive up. The scenic quality of most of the park is about average, trees, gravel, and lawns, but near the office, there is a modest-sized lake, fronted by a lush lawn that makes a great place to relax. You can go boating on the lake, or do some fishing, though, like the pool, it’s on the small side for serious recreation of either sort.
As it notes, the park is connected to a golf course, and that is where you will find food service as well as a bar and pro-shop. I can’t speak to the quality of the course, but we did order some bar food at their “snack shack” and found it to be surprisingly good. While technically, it has the bare minimums for a “resort” designation, it didn’t have much of a resort vibe to it. None the less, we liked it and while the price is high by our standards, for the region it is about on par.
The sites themselves were quite decent with good level gravel pads and sufficient room for big rigs. Overall, I give it a solid recommendation as a decent, if not spectacular place to stay.
