we moved to new life rv park in georgetown, tx from berry springs rv hoping for a better bathroom situation. read about the first stop here. we really wanted to stay in austin but the one rv place in the city was booked for the month and all other rv parks are located in surrounding suburbs like these two. we drove by quite a few and none looked great. new life, as you can see from the photos, has very well maintained grounds. the individual sites are very nice, each with bushes bordering between you and your neighbor offering privacy. the pool area is nice but the pool is not heated so pretty chilly even with the hot weather.
despite our efforts to move onward and upward in the bathroom situation, this park failed miserably. what we didn’t know going in, that we think makes a huge difference, is having separate womens and mens rooms, and this one doesn’t. just say no to unisex bathrooms. the bathrooms were dirty, really dirty, every single day. in a state or federal park you aren’t paying for this and you go in armed & ready so to speak (not to say those aren’t well kept, you just have different expectations) but in an rv park you are paying for the facility usage, otherwise it would be primitive camping. the toilets had “waste” in them every time and it is not pretty. the floors were always wet and dirty and the cleaning was minimal and non-existent on weekends. it’s byoTP so be forewarned, lest you get yourself in a a situation. they seemed to be used non-stop by men and we don’t know how they keep the big buses they were coming out of to use the facilities, but if how they left the bathrooms was any indication…scary. in summary, the grounds are kept perfect but the bathroom is a big pass.
for this looky-loo review clark & ellen give the same report as last, if you do not need the bathhouse at all it’s a go, if you do, keep on moving.
