Utt's Campground, Fancy Gap, Virginia

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $28.00
Overall Rating:

Park has two sections: a wooded area with back-in sites for small to medium rigs, and a hillside meadow with pull-through's for longer rigs and those that just want a mountain view. Our site was almost exactly level; most others looked close to level, but I did see some helpful lumber left around, so all may not be exactly level. Being on a hillside, the sites do slope off to the side. The step down from the RV may be long. Utilities all worked fine (WSE). It got hot a few days, and we ran all 3 AC's uneventfully. Wifi is better that most campgrounds we have stayed in. Owners are pleasant and helpful. The campground is very dog friendly. The wooded area is available for walks. Right behind our RV was an acre+ mowed lawn in which we played with the dog (who adores Frisbee). The campground is primarily (90%) seasonal part-timers. All rigs were neatly kept, and the residents, mostly retirees, were friendly. The campground is easily accessible from I-77, maybe a mile or so away. There are a couple restaurants within a mile and several more 8 miles away in Hillsville. There is truck diesel at the I-77 interchange. The Blue Ridge Parkway is a mile or so away. We really like it here. It's private, quiet, scenic, with all amenities that we need. We camped at Utt's Campground in a Motorhome.

Big Hart Campground COE, Thomson, Georgia

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $12.00
Overall Rating:

This is a pretty park built on a hillside adjacent to a large lake. Signage is minimal on the access road. We had a flat, but sloping pullthrough site that just accommodated our 40' MH and toad. Water and 50A electric worked well. Staff were very helpful and pleasant; they obviously take pride in their care of the park. We were the only campers in our loop on a weekday. We elected not to try it. Tree cover mostly prevents satellite TV, and we found no OTA TV. ATT cell coveage was weak to non-existent. Camp loop drive is tight for MH, but certainly navigable. We camped at Big Hart Campground COE in a Motorhome.

Pride RV Resort, Waynesville, North Carolina

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $27.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed in a creekfront site. IMHO it was a bargain at the Passport America rate. Our site was long enough for our RV, but the toad had to park alongside (for which there was room). We could deploy 4 slides without feeling cramped. Utilities were good, except for wifi, which was weak and intermittent at our site. AT&T cell coverage (4g) was good. We had good satellite coverage, although many sites might not; however there is cable that appeared to work fine. The creek and grassy area along it are really neat for walking dogs. Most residents are "mature" and seasonal. All we met were pleasant. The pool looked inviting, although we didn't use it. It can get a little muddy when it rains. We were positively impressed, and will try to return. We camped at Pride RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Aurora Oaks Campground, Hardin, Kentucky

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $26.00
Overall Rating:

This is a pretty place, well off the road in thick trees. We were assigned a pull through that was long enough for our RV and level enough, once we jockeyed to the right position. Utilities were fine, except internet kept dropping out, in spite of a strong Wifi signal level. We had to back out using an empty site behind us, due to low tree branches and the new owner's OHV parking. The park was sold during our stay. We had a few issues with the new owner's dogs. The new owners are largely an unknown quantity. Time will tell. We camped at Aurora Oaks Campground in a Motorhome.

D & W Lake Camping and RV Park, Champaign, Illinois

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

Upon arrival and quick check in, we were escorted to our site by our host. Our site was level and accommodated our motorhome and toad without unhooking. Our site was surrounded by mature trees, providing shade, but still allowing satellite access from our rooftop mount. There is a small fenced dog area plus lots of open space to walk or run your dog. There is also a nice walking trail around the lake. The only downside for us was that the wifi really only worked well between 6 and 7 am. We did have good AT&T LTE coverage. Traffic noise was noticeable, but muted. It's a very convenient spot for an overnight stop. We had no trouble navigating the access roads. We camped at D & W Lake Camping and RV Park in a Motorhome.

W.H. Lyon Fairground, Sioux Falls, South Dakota

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

We needed an overnight stop in Sioux Falls, where there are not a lot of good choices. The camp host (Don) led us to our site and filled us in on local lore. Our site was a level grass, full hookup, pull-through that accommodated RV and toad. We had wifi for a short time. There is lots of open grassy space to walk dogs within the grounds. It was quite noisy while we were there, between traffic in the campground, trains, and aircraft all through the night. We camped at W.H. Lyon Fairground in a Motorhome.

Twin Pines RV Park, Lander, Wyoming

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

Our host was very friendly and helpful, but the park is only OK. Sites are all gravel with trees between. The trees severely limit RV space; either slides or awning, but not both. The trees also limit satellite reception. Sites are too short to accommodate RV plus toad without disconnecting. Wifi is available only in the office. The fenced dog run is unusable but there is a grassy tent area below the RV sites where dogs can be walked. We camped at Twin Pines RV Park in a Motorhome.

Estes Park Campground at Marys Lake, Estes Park, Colorado

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

I found this park neither as good nor as poor as previous reviewers. We had to split our stay between two sites in order to spend a week. Our middle row site was longer and wider than our back row site. Both were adequate for our 40 ft motorhome with toad parked alongside. It is very dusty and can be muddy in rainy weather. Most sites seem to slope substantially downward, so bring blocking,even for a motorhome. The staff is working to improve the base, but there is more work to do. Wifi is still poor: it unpredictably goes from OK, to slow, to gone, and back. The work campers try very hard to keep the place clean, but there's a lot to be done. Many customers light fires in the evening; it can get very smoky. We camped at Estes Park Campground at Marys Lake in a Motorhome.

Uncompahgre River RV Park (55+ park), Olathe, Colorado

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

The park is well off the highway, exceptionally clean and well kept, with numerous flower beds and mature trees. We did have to back into our pull-through site, possibly because one of the long term residents was blocking access to pull-through. Our site was long and level, with a concrete pad for the RV and a concrete patio. There was plenty of room to park the toad, just not behind the RV. Utilities were fine, with notable wifi speed and strength. We had good AT&T coverage and a clear satellite view. There appeared to be only 2 transients while we were there, but the long term folk seemed friendly enough. On the less good side, it did seem a little expensive for a small town park. Maybe that's why it wasn't full. There is a large area in the unused section of the park that we used to run our dogs, and no one complained. All in all, it's a good place, and we had a good stay. We camped at Uncompahgre River RV Park (55+ park) in a Motorhome.

James M. Robb-Colorado River State Park (Fruita Section), Fruita, Colorado

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

Our site was a reasonably long, level, paved pull-through with full hookup. There is no wifi, but AT&T coverage is good. Sites have a very nice covered patio with picnic table. They water the grass, and our toad and RV were thoroughly sprayed. Other sites were watered in mid-afternoon. There is a long walking trail along the Colorado river, and numerous grassy areas in which dogs can walk. The park is close to the Colorado National Monument. Campground hosts keep the place really clean, but apparently don't monitor the lawn sprinklers. Trains come through closely in the middle of the night. We camped at James M. Robb-Colorado River State Park (Fruita Section) in a Motorhome.

Thousand Lakes RV Park, Torrey, Utah

Date of Stay: May, 2016 - $36.00
Overall Rating:

Our experience was mixed. Our site was a reasonably long, wide, and level pull-through. Trees on either side blocked satellite reception. Within minutes of arriving, our RV, selves, and toad were thoroughly sprayed with irrigation water. Upon pointing it out, the staff then throttled the sprayers. Wifi was alternately fast, slow, and unusable, more often than not unusable. The park is very clean and has a fine kids playground and pool. The gift shop is well stocked and reasonably priced. The grill, only open for dinner, has fine sandwiches. This is ATV country, and the park has many customers with ATVs. Most are careful and considerate; some are not. I would think hard before staying here again. We camped at Thousand Lakes RV Park in a Motorhome.

Ruby's Inn RV Park and Campground, Bryce Canyon, Utah

Date of Stay: May, 2016 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed in the "new" section over Memorial Day weekend. Our site wasn't shaded, but was long, wide, and had a nice large grass/ washed gravel barrier between sites. The camp roads and the sites are dirty gravel, which could be a problem in rainy weather, but it was fine when we were there. Water, sewer, electric worked well. We had strong AT&T coverage. Wifi was strong, but sometimes slow and intermittent. There is a large pasture behind the campground in which to run dogs, although it must be shared with some pronghorns. We were favorably impressed with the campground. We camped at Ruby's Inn RV Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

Dead Horse Ranch State Park, Cottonwood, Arizona

Date of Stay: May, 2016 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

We had another fine stay at Dead Horse Ranch State Park. Our site was a level pull-through that accommodated motorhome and toad. Utilities (water and electric) worked fine. We had good AT&T coverage. We were in the Coopers Hawk loop, which is desert; someday we'll snag a site in the Owl loop that is riverside. The park has an extensive grassy and treed riverfront area with 3 lagoons and well-maintained walking trails. We, the dogs, and many locals, love to walk the trails in the morning. This park has the finest cadre of volunteers I've ever found, year after year. IMHO it speaks well of the park management. We camped at Dead Horse Ranch State Park in a Motorhome.

Enchanted Trails RV Park & Trading Post, Albuquerque, New Mexico

Date of Stay: May, 2016 - $17.00
Overall Rating:

Our site was long and level. Our neighbors were close, but everyone got slides and awnings out without interference. There is no grass nor dedicated dog walk, but there is lots of dirt space around the periphery of the park. Our utilities (water, sewer, electric, AT&T cell coverage, and wifi) worked fine. The wifi does require that one find the right window to be near, but then it worked fine for us. The park is very convenient to the interstate. There's some traffic noise, but not too much IMHO. I liked the place for an overnight stop. We camped at Enchanted Trails RV Park & Trading Post in a Motorhome.

Taos Monte Bello RV Park, El Prado, New Mexico

Date of Stay: May, 2016 - $38.00
Overall Rating:

This campground is a few miles north of Taos in an arid area. It does get windy there. Our site was not quite long enough to accommodate motorhome and toad, but there was plenty of room beside the motorhome. Water, sewer, and electric worked well. AT&T cell coverage is good. Wifi on our site was marginal, fast when it would connect. I suspect it is better on other sites; the campground antennas are pretty low. The whole campground is very well kept. Our dogs thought the walking trail was great. This is a great base from which to explore the area. We camped at Taos Monte Bello RV Park in a Motorhome.
