About BigRigFriendly

Currently we travel for business in our '17 Winnebago Journey. Exploring different cities/towns and tourist destinations in the USA. We enjoy hiking, kayaking and biking. We recently picked up a new hobby and purchased a Rubicon Jeep for our "toad" so we can go off roading. The plan is to go full-time in summer of 2020.

Galveston Island RV Resort, Galveston, Texas

Date of Stay: October, 2019 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

Nice park about 30 min. from Galveston. Quieter out there and still just across the street from beach access. Clean, well kept park. Jamaica Beach just 13 min. drive has a few small convenient/grocery stores and restaurants. Spent most of our time at the beach or down by the bridge at the pass playing in the sand with our Jeep and watching the beautiful sunset. Didn't use much of the amenities but nice patio to sit on with a nice view. Pool and lazy river, pickle ball and some games at the clubhouse. Wi-fi not the best. Worked intermittently. Concrete site with a grill and picnic table. We camped at Galveston Island RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Check out Galveston State Park if you like nature and some hiking. Drive down to San Luis Pass by the bridge to see the sunset (some areas need 4x4). Take a drive along the Termini-San-Luis Pass Rd and look at all the houses. They are still building them.

Okatoma Resort & RV Park, Hattiesburg, Mississippi

Date of Stay: July, 2019 - $34.00
Overall Rating:

Loved the setting of this campground even though it was a little ways off the main road but that's what made it so nice. Although we loved the campground and it's scenery with the ponds, trees and ducks, we weren't real thrilled with our site (62). Gravel with no grass, table or fire pit. If we had stayed longer than 1 night we would have been very disappointed. Staff was friendly and met us as we pulled in. Being a nature lover and photographer, I enjoyed the nature scenery and walk around the ponds. The ducks walking around were also entertaining. We did not use any of the facilities: pool, laundry or restrooms but they appeared to be in decent shape. We camped at Okatoma Resort & RV Park in a Motorhome.

Lake Conroe / Houston North KOA , Montgomery, Texas

Date of Stay: May, 2019 - $70.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed at this KOA during Memorial weekend. Found an opening last minute on Thursday so we were happy campers. We were happy to see they had fire rings as lots of Texas campgrounds don't but upon arriving we learned that our particular site did not and the KOA were not able to help us at all with that so we had to buy one at Wal-mart. Little disappointing. We also were not given info. at check-in about garbage, paddle boats or any special events in park. Free wi-fi did not work most of the time. As a Sprint user I was not able to get service in CG or around town. Verizon service worked and we had to use our hot spot. We were escorted to our site which was helpful. Nice long paved site that fit our 41' MH and Jeep and room for our fire pit also. Site did have picnic table. Our site backed up to one of the ponds (lots of nature sounds at night). Disappointed to see grass was not mowed (until Memorial Day) Were told due to large MH's from a previous rally that week they couldn't mow around them. Park seems to be lacking in upkeep some but still decent facilities. They were also in process of moving the office. Very large park with 200+ sites with several permanents and 35 cabin sites. Wasn't even full on Memorial weekend. We didn't use much of facilities but spent time hiking and exploring in the area. Close to groceries, restaurants and Lake Conroe and Sam Houston National Forest. Bugs were not bad when we went in May. Upper 80's. We camped at Lake Conroe / Houston North KOA in a Motorhome.

A nice dinner spot on the lake is Wolfie's off 105. Crawfish and shrimp. Busy place. Also if you like hiking there are two spots - Sam Houston National Forest (Lone Star Trailhead #6) and WG Jones State Forest in The Woodlands (25 min.)

Rock'n E RV Park, Coldspring, Texas

Date of Stay: March, 2019 - $36.00
Overall Rating:

If you love camping in the woods and hiking like we do, then you will love this place as much as we did. Very beautiful with the tall trees, quiet and peaceful. Located in the Sam Houston National Forest it was a great location to explore the area. The park has direct access to some hiking trails with their own little scavenger hunt. Fun for kids and adults. More hiking trails at Lake Livingston State Park and Big Scenic Recreation Area. Both within a 20 min. drive. Beautiful drives through the national forest. Staff was friendly at check-in. We didn't use much of the amenities other than the hiking trails. Park wasn't full at the time we were there in March. We camped at Rock'n E RV Park in a Motorhome.

Royal Oaks RV Park, Bemidji, Minnesota

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

Great location to camp at while exploring the Bemidji area. Owner was very friendly and helpful. Located just off the highway, so there was some traffic noise from our campsite but perhaps not in others farther back. Clean, well kept campground. Big rig friendly with full hookups, gravel pads and trimmed trees! We stayed during 4th of July and the owners put on a very good fireworks display and also hosted a karaoke night around the community campfire. Laundry and clean showers and some groceries available too. We had no problem with WiFi service at our campsite #28 which was near the main entrance and office. We camped at Royal Oaks RV Park in a Motorhome.

So much to explore in this area from biking the Paul Bunyan State Trail, hiking the two state parks nearby or fishing, boating, kayaking, or swimming the lakes nearby. And of course stop in to see Paul and Babe. A really nice upscale restaurant with a view of the lake was at Sparkling Waters. Also a great ice cream shop just across from the Paul Bunyan park.

Camp Maiden Rock West, Morristown, Minnesota

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

Besides the outdated look to the place, it wasn't a bad place. It was a large property with a full sized disc golf, disc driving range, a mini-golf, v-ball, b-ball, outdoor pool and right off the paved bike trail. There were lots of things to do there and it was near a State Park. The playground was "old-school" and the mini-golf was pretty outdated but it added some character to the place along with the older buildings and vintage decor. Also a couple goats on the property that were chained up or caged. We did not visit the pool but we did use the showers in the main office building and they were fairly decent but still outdated. Our site was only E/W but they offered full hook-ups near the seasonal's and also electric and primitive sites. A band played Saturday night that was pretty good. We would stay here again just because of the location being near a State Park for hiking and biking and access to a river for kayaking. We camped at Camp Maiden Rock West in a Motorhome.

Overall decent campground besides being a bit outdated. Could trim a few trees for taller RV's coming in.
