Chula Vista RV Resort, Chula Vista, California

Date of Stay: October, 2007 - $38.00
Overall Rating:

There are only a few things that keep me from giving this park a 10. One, the sites could be slightly larger. They do have landscaping between each site, so you have the illusion of privacy. Two, their cable TV only has about 10 channels. However, the park is satellite friendly. Only a few sites are blocked by trees. Finally, they do have WIFI, but it is a paid service, not free. Aside from those, this is a great park. The attached marina has two restaurants. Roads are paved, pool area was nice, although we did not use it as it was too cool when we were here. Unlike some of the earlier reviews, we found the staff helpful and friendly. We were here as part of a tour group, so we did not select the park and did receive a discounted rate, but we would return here on our own. The park is also convenient to I-5 and the greater San Diego area. The groundscrew is constantly working to keep the park clean and well landscaped. We camped at Chula Vista RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Tahoe Valley Campground, South Lake Tahoe, California

Date of Stay: September, 2007 - $54.00
Overall Rating:

I was nervous about staying at this park after reading some of the recent reviews, but we were pleasantly surprised. We were there over the Labor Day weekend, so they were definitely full, but it didn't feel overcrowded. We navigated our 39' motor home into a back-in site with no problems. We did have another unit behind us, but the way the units are angled we didn't feel like they were on top of us. Full hookup site, everything worked fine. I will say that they could use some more leveling of their sites. The sites are dirt, and the dust does blow around when it's windy. We were able to get satellite reception at the site where we stayed, #431, which was fortunate because while they advertise cable TV, they actually only have about 12 channels. As I mentioned, the park was very full, but people seemed to observe the quiet hours and we were never kept awake or bothered by noisy neighbors. There are some long-term residents, but they keep their sites well picked-up. The camp store is nothing to get excited about. There are lots of family activities, including movies, ice cream socials, etc. The playground, basketball court, tennis court, and pool seemed to get a lot of use. This was our first stay in the Tahoe area and we would definitely stay here again. We camped at Tahoe Valley Campground in a Motorhome.

Winnemucca RV Park, Winnemucca, Nevada

Date of Stay: August, 2007 - $27.00
Overall Rating:

Fine park for an overnight stay. Full hookups available, 50 AMP, and park is satellite friendly in some spots, more heavily treed in others. People working were nice and helpful. If we pass this way again, we would stop here. They give discounts to both Escapees and Good Sams. WIFI is free. We camped at Winnemucca RV Park in a Motorhome.

Coloma / St. Joseph KOA, Riverside, Michigan

Date of Stay: July, 2007 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

We spent a week in this campground and were overall pleased and would come back. It is a very family friendly campground; lots of children, lots of large groups, and possibly more tenters than RVers. As a result, it is fairly busy, noisy, and crowded. But if you want a family oriented park with lots of activities for the kids, I would recommend this. They have a pool and playground, and the office sells doughnuts in the morning and ice cream throughout the day. There are fire rings at all sites. The sites are grass/dirt. The tree cover is very heavy, so it is not satellite friendly and there is no cable. It's also next to impossible to get local channels on the TV, even with a rooftop antenna. The WIFI is free, but it is also erratic, and the signal strength varies a lot throughout the day. We did have an electric power outage one night, there was no storm in the area at the time, but it was back up in about two hours. Overall a nice park, but again, very crowded, especially on the weekends. We camped at Coloma / St. Joseph KOA in a Motorhome.

Lazy River RV Resort, Eldon, Missouri

Date of Stay: July, 2007 - $23.00
Overall Rating:

I found this park in Woodall's, and I've taken the information about number of sites from their listing. I made a reservation by phone, they didn't ask for a credit card to hold it. When we arrived at the park at 5:30 pm, the office was locked up and the only note on the door said if you arrive when nobody is in the office, just pick a spot. We drove around the park in search of an open spot; there are a lot of semi-permanent residences and only a few spots appeared to be open. The first spot we parked in had a sewer cap that we couldn't open, so we moved over one spot. We did have a beautiful view of the river, which was the park's only redeeming quality. Roads were in fair shape, we were able to navigate 39' motor home reasonably well. They have a row of sites which should be pull-thrus, but for some reason they have the road blocked off so you still have to back into them. Our site only had 30 amp electric, not sure if there was any 50 amp available. When we left the following morning there was still nobody in the office; I finally rang a bell at the door and somebody appeared to collect my money. I would only recommend this park for an overnight stay, definitely not a destination location. We camped at Lazy River RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Blythe Island Regional Park Campground, Brunswick, Georgia

Date of Stay: March, 2007 - $27.00
Overall Rating:

I can't say enough good things about this park. The earlier reviews have been dead on. The campground is within a county park, so the rate is reasonable, and they have 50 amp electric, water, sewer, free cable, and free WIFI. For a really nice view, park in sites 1-12 which face the lake. The whole area is so picturesque. While there are no organized activities, the park has boat rentals, a playground, a boat ramp, and plenty of walking and biking trails. It's also very conveniently located to explore nearby Jekyll Island and St. Simons Island. Staff is friendly and helpful. There are fire rings/pits at the sites, and you can buy firewood in the office that they will deliver to your site. The only reason I don't give it a 10 is because the sites are dirt, and the tree canopy is so heavy that we couldn't get a satellite signal. Will definitely stay here again. If you like a park with bingo in the rec center every night, this may not be for you. But if you just like to get away from it all and be surrounded by nature, you'll love it here! We camped at Blythe Island Regional Park Campground in a Motorhome.

Nova Family Campground, Port Orange, Florida

Date of Stay: March, 2007 - $70.00
Overall Rating:

I would only recommend this park as an overnight stop, not for a long term destination. We were here for part of "Bike Week" in Daytona, which made our rate much higher than normal. Full hookups, all worked fine, and we were able to get satellite reception through the trees on our site. Mainly the parks is old, run down, and there's a lot of trash. A few permanent residents, some appear to have been there so long that they probably couldn't be moved if you tried. Bike Week ended on Sunday, and by the following Friday the dumpsters were still overflowing, and there was still trash scattered all over the tent sites. The staff was nice and friendly though. Wouldn't go back unless it was just a stopover along to somewhere else. We camped at Nova Family Campground in a Motorhome.

Bryn Mawr Ocean Resort, St Augustine Beach, Florida

Date of Stay: March, 2007 - $57.00
Overall Rating:

The main draw of this campground is the location. Right on a beautiful stretch of wide beach. The night before we arrived, there was a heavy rain in the area. There were large potholes throughout the streets. But in their favor, the next day they did have a grader out spreading more sand and leveling out the roads. It appears to be an ongoing challenge because of the sand/dirt roads. With our 39' motor home, we found the roads challenging but navigable. I would give this park a higher rating were it not for our water pressure, which was just a trickle. We barely got 20 pounds of pressure registered on our gauge. We even tried removing our regulator altogether to see if it would improve. Showers were a real challenge, so was doing the dishes, and flushing our black tank simply wasn't possible. We did ask the office if they could check the water at our site, and the guy they sent out basically looked at it, shrugged, and told me the park was "full". We stayed for 3 days and would have stayed longer if the water situation could have been improved, but as it was the park was full. I can't imagine that the water is that bad normally with so many permanent residents, but maybe they're used to it. We also liked the little tiki deck areas they had next to the sites. They were nice and gave shade, but weren't so large that we had trouble fitting into the site, as in some parks. When we made the reservation we were asked how big our rig was and they actually placed us somewhere according to where we'd fit, which many parks do not. Also the pool is very large and looked clean, but was right next to A1A so you'd have a poor view w/highway noise. We would probably not stay here again, only because of the water pressure problem, and the campground didn't seem very interested in solving the problem. We camped at Bryn Mawr Ocean Resort in a Motorhome.

Pioneer Beach Resort, Port Aransas, Texas

Date of Stay: December, 2006 - $28.00
Overall Rating:

This park is an excellent value. The premium sites are worth the additional price if you like to be able to hear the ocean from your rig. They also offer free WIFI throughout the park, which is very rare. There is an additional charge for electric service if you stay a week or longer. Lots of activities at the rec hall, including breakfast and lunch served on the weekends. This is also a great value, since you can have a full breakfast for about $3 per person, and it's a great way to meet other people. They do charge you $10 for a mailbox key if you want to receive mail, but you get that back at checkout. They also give you information on the area at check-in, including a schedule of the trolley that stops at the park every hour during the day. We enjoyed this park so much that we extended our stay an extra week. The park is under contract to a developer and their website does provide information regarding how much longer they'll be taking reservations. One employee did tell us he thought it would be two to three more years before they closed. We hope so, because we'll definitely be back! We camped at Pioneer Beach Resort in a Motorhome.

Gulf Waters RV Resort, Port Aransas, Texas

Date of Stay: December, 2006 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

While this is a very attractive park, I didn't feel it was worth the price. The park is still under construction and we were bothered by construction equipment noise, including pumps that ran all night several times during our week long stay. There are about two pages of rules that you're given at check in, most of which are so basic that it seems overkill to have written them down. Again, the sites are very large, with concrete patios and concrete tables & benches. Once the park is completed I expect it will be beautiful. But after a week we moved to a different park in the same town, because this one was just too expensive and also fairly empty, very few other people to talk to. Another surprise is that there are only two washers and two dryers, surprising for a park of its size. In addition to their standard rates, they charged me an extra $10 per week for my two cats who stay inside my coach. I can understand the charge for dogs, since some people don't pick up after them, but cats? To summarize, an attractive park, but overpriced and not many activities. They also did not tell me at check-in that I would be charged for electric usage at check-out, but two weeks later I received a credit card receipt in the mail with an additional $35 charge for electricity. There are a lot of other parks in this area, and I will stay with those next time. We camped at Gulf Waters RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Travelers World RV Resort, San Antonio, Texas

Date of Stay: December, 2006 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

The main reason we selected this park was its location; it's only 4 miles from the Riverwalk/Alamo area. I would agree with some earlier reviews that the neighborhood surrounding the park is a little rundown, but did not ever feel unsafe. The office staff was very helpful; at the time of our check in, they provided tourist information including the bus schedule, the directions to the Riverwalk area, and even recommendations on which park garages were easiest to get in & out of. They did have a pool, but it was closed at the time of our visit. Despite being an older park, it was well-kept and the sites were maintained and clean. We would definitely stay here again for the convenience of the location. We camped at Travelers World RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Camp Stockton RV Park (formerly Comanche Land RV Park), Fort Stockton, Texas

Date of Stay: November, 2006 - $13.00
Overall Rating:

We used this park just for an overnight stay while traveling along Interstate 10. It was right off the highway, easy to get in and out of, and the gentleman running it was extremely pleasant, including staying late to wait for us since we were behind schedule that day. Good value for $13. We camped at Camp Stockton RV Park (formerly Comanche Land RV Park) in a Motorhome.

Destiny RV Resort, Goodyear, Arizona

Date of Stay: November, 2006 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

Previous reviews mention a water problem in this park; however, we stayed here for 3 weeks and drank the water with no ill effects. The park was definitely not very crowded, even during the weekend of the Nascar race at nearby Phoenix International Raceway, they said they were full but did not appear to be. There are some "permanent" homes here, some of which are unsightly. Also the park advertised Wi-Fi but my laptop which has a wireless card in it never seemed to find it, so I used my own. When I asked about this at the office, the girl there just shrugged. There are two people in the office, one who is very helpful. The other one, whose name I do not know and wouldn't post if I did, basically just gives you yes or no answers and doesn't try to offer any information. So if you have questions about the area, try and talk to the good one! The roads do have some large speed bumps, and while many sites are pull-throughs, there are close corners where other guests have parked their tow vehicles in front of or behind their site. The pool was closed for a couple of days for repair, other than that it was nice and clean. There are restrooms in the center of the park, next to the trash dumpsters. Avoid the spots on either side, as you'll be able to hear the restroom doors slam shut all night long, and the dumpsters do get filled to overflowing. All in all, this was a nice park for an extended stay, and we will return here when we're back in the area next year. Also this is the only park in Goodyear without age restrictions. We camped at Destiny RV Resort in a Motorhome.
