The Ranch - Escapees Park (members only), Lakewood, New Mexico

Date of Stay: May, 2016 - $10.00
Overall Rating:

The rate reflects a monthly stay. The weekly rate is $80 with a discount for the first week's stay. This RV Park is an SKP Co-op park. You must be a member of Escapees or a guest of a member to stay. It is conveniently located between Carlsbad and Artesia, New Mexico. It is a short drive from Roswell. The sites are spacious and level and most include concrete pads to park on. The water is the cleanest of any park we've been to. The full-time residents and guests were very friendly and welcoming. There were plenty of events including a daily "happy hour" and movies on Saturdays. There was a lot of wildlife including bunnies, jackrabbits, road runners, doves, and more. We heard coyotes at night. There was plenty of space inside and right outside of the park to walk and exercise the dogs. Brantley Lake is four miles away with areas to walk, swim, fish, and launch boats. Sitting Bull Falls is about 40 miles away with beautiful hiking trails and waterfalls. We camped at The Ranch - Escapees Park (members only) in a Fifth Wheel.

Artesia is the closest town to the north. Carlsbad is about 20 miles to the south. Both towns have shopping, grocery stores, Walmart, restaurants, hospitals and medical clinics, propane, and auto repair.

Hilltop RV Park, Fort Stockton, Texas

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

We stopped here for a few days on our way to New Mexico. The park was very dusty. The sites were very close together. Some sites had concrete patios. It is convenient to nearby shopping and gas. It was pretty quiet. We camped at Hilltop RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Greenlake RV Resort, San Antonio, Texas

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

The rate reflects a weekly stay. The rate for a monthly stay is much lower. Green Lake RV Resort is a fairly new, nice RV park in southeastern San Antonio. All of the sites are concrete with a picnic table and ample space for lawn chairs. There is a small area of grass next to each site as well. The sites are pretty close together, but we had no issues with noise from neighbors. The cable and wifi work well, although the wifi can be slow at times, which is to be expected. It is better than I have seen at other parks. The laundry room, game room, and bathrooms are kept clean. There are plenty of washers and dryers. There are two outdoor kitchens with a gas grill, gas fire pit, and picnic tables at each one. There is a heated pool and a hot tub with two hours daily when only adults are permitted. The park is within 15 minutes of grocery stores, department stores, and restaurants. It is within 10 minutes of Mission Espada and San Juan, both of which connect to the River Walk, which runs from Espada to The Alamo. We camped at Greenlake RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Eisenhower Park is about 40 minutes away and features both easy (paved) and moderate (natural, rocky) hikes. The Alamo is nearby. It's free to park at Mission Concepcion or San Jose and walk; parking in the city is pricey. Also nearby is the Alamo Drafthouse, which is a movie theatre where dinner is served while you are watching the movie. It is definitely worth checking out while you are in San Antonio.

Rainbow Plantation - Escapees Rainbow Park , Summerdale, Alabama

Date of Stay: December, 2015 - $18.00
Overall Rating:

The rate reflects a weekly stay. Rainbow Plantation is an Escapees park. As such you must be an Escapees member to stay here. The sites are spacious and easy to back into. The office staff were friendly and helpful. The area was nice. The laundry facilities were clean, inexpensive, and worked well. There were many permanent residents and long-term guests, but they kept their sites neat. Community meals were held several times per week, as well as other activities. There was a DVD lending library. We were in the minority being below the retirement age. Most guests were diligent about cleaning up after their dogs, but not all were. We camped at Rainbow Plantation - Escapees Rainbow Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Southern Gates RV Park & Campground, Arabi, Georgia

Date of Stay: December, 2015 - $22.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed at Southern Gates RV Park for a week. After checking in the owners gave us an RV-shaped cookie and walked us to our pull-through site (all sites here are pull-through). The owners couldn't be friendlier or more helpful. The site was very level. The water, electric, and sewer connections were convenient. We had no problems with any of the connections. The park is quiet and peaceful with clean landscaping. The days that we didn't go to local parks and hung around the campground were peaceful and enjoyable. The laundry room featured two washers and two dryers at $1.25 each, which is very inexpensive for a campground, and they worked well. Although we didn't use them, the bathrooms looked clean. There is a pool which we didn't use as we stayed here in December. The campground is located on a quiet street where we were able to walk our dogs. We used our TV antenna and were able to get several channels in clearly, including local channels, MeTV, and GRIT. Within 10 miles there are several stores and businesses including Walmart, AutoZone, local grocery stores, Tractor Supply, a hardware store, restaurants, a movie theatre, and multiple gas stations. The only store closer than ten miles is down the block from the campground, and it seems to only sell crafts and small gifts. We camped at Southern Gates RV Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

The Georgia Veterans State Park in Cordele is beautiful with trails, a military museum, and a marina. Providence Canyon (the "little Grand Canyon") is about 2 hours away but well worth the drive. In Albany the Riverfront Park is also beautiful, but the walking trails aren't the best. About an hour away is Maranatha Baptist Church, where former President Carter still teaches Sunday School on almost a weekly basis.

Tucquan Park, Holtwood, Pennsylvania

Date of Stay: November, 2015 - $17.00
Overall Rating:

Rate reflects monthly stay. The nightly rate for shorter stays is more. This is a nice campground in Lancaster County. Many of the sites are spacious and level. Sites in the wooded areas are smaller and more difficult to back into. The wifi worked well as did Verizon service. There is no cable TV but many channels come in using the antenna. The staff here are among the friendliest of any campground we've stayed at. There are multiple trails on the campground to walk, and there are two great parks within 2 miles. There are a lot of campers parked here full time with people staying here during the winter months. We were parked up on the hill which can get quite windy and cold. There are other campgrounds in the area that we've stayed at and Tucquan Park was by far our favorite in the Holtwood area. We camped at Tucquan Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Muddy Run Recreation Park, Holtwood, Pennsylvania

Date of Stay: September, 2015 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed at Muddy Run for a weekend. It is close to the Buck in Lancaster County. It is easily accessible from Route 372. The roads within the park are tight and windy. Most sites are not level. At all. The sites are tight and difficult to back into. Many sites are very short. The water and electric connections are shared with other sites. You need extension cords to access connections. There are no sewer connections and no honeywagon service. The only options for emptying tanks are to have a portable container, to call a local service for $30, or to hook up and go to the dump station. We didn't understand why people would stay there for more than a few days. The bathrooms were not clean. You will get charged if you park your car in a neighboring site, even if the campground is empty. There is a large lake but swimming is prohibited. There is no pool. There was a nice nature trail. There is a restaurant on site where we had breakfast, which wasn't bad. We camped at Muddy Run Recreation Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Codorus State Park, Hanover, Pennsylvania

Date of Stay: August, 2015 - $28.00
Overall Rating:

Codorus State Park has a nice campground. However, there are not many sites that allow pets, and even fewer pet-friendly sites with shade. I wish I had known that most PA state campgrounds don't have water hookups before we got there, even "modern electric" sites. If I stayed there again I would get site 44 due to its proximity to the water spigot in case we needed to refill the tank. If you don't have a pet, site 57 is also close to a water spigot. We camped at Codorus State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Cowans Gap State Park, Fort Loudon, Pennsylvania

Date of Stay: August, 2015 - $28.00
Overall Rating:

Cowans Gap is a great campground. The only complaint I had was that there are no water connections at the sites. The campground is beautiful. We stayed in Area B. The sites here are much more spacious and spread out than in Area A, and it is right on the lake. A few of the sites are pull-through. There is only one dump station in the park, in Area A, and there are no sewer hookups.The "beach" is on the opposite side of the lake, and only a short (10 minute) walk away. If I stayed here again I would get either site 184 or 190 due to their proximities to the water spigot. 184 was also a pull-through site. We ran out of water and had to refill the fresh water tank with a 7-gallon container, which got VERY heavy carrying from the water to the camper. We camped at Cowans Gap State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

There are so many trails in the state park. There is a biker bar at the top of the mountain on route 30. I wouldn't eat/drink at the bar, but the view down the mountain from the parking lot was incredible.

Island Resort Family Campground & RV Park, Newark, Maryland

Date of Stay: June, 2015 - $65.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed at Island Resort Campground for a week. Over the weekend the campground seemed pretty full, but it was much quieter during the week. We first stayed on the far side of the lake at site 67, in between two seasonal campers. The site was very level. There was no tree shade unless you walked toward the lake, which was lined with trees. The water smelled horrible. We had to attach a filter to the spigot but it barely made a difference. I used bottled water to brush my teeth and almost gagged while showering. The bugs were awful being so close to the lake and we didn't want to spend time outside.

After two days we moved to site 95. It wasn't very level. However, the water was much cleaner. There was ample shade and it felt more like camping than like being in an RV parking lot. The bugs weren't as bad at this site as it was farther from the lake. We had to get an extra sewer hose as the sewer hookup is at the back of the site and we needed to park farther up to get the most level area.

The pool was clean. The camp store was well stocked and was clean. The bathroom was clean. The laundry room was clean and had plenty of machines. It was open 24/7 which was convenient.

I did not use the WiFi as my Verizon phone worked well as a hotspot. They say the WiFi can only be used at the camp store; however, my computer picked it up from site 95. I didn't try to connect as it cost $5.00 to get the password. We camped at Island Resort Family Campground & RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

The campground is close to Ocean City. However, we brought two dogs with us and dogs are not allowed on the beach. We went to Assateague National Seashore instead. Although the flies could get annoying on the beach, overall we really enjoyed ourselves there, as did the dogs, who got to swim in the ocean and "belly surf" to shore.

Pequea Creek Campground, Pequea, Pennsylvania

Date of Stay: May, 2015 - $32.00
Overall Rating:

This is a great park. Our site was on the creek. It wasn't too crowded and there was ample space between sites. There is a pool/recreation area, and the sites over there are much more crowded and noisy, as there were a lot of families staying in that area. The park is family-run and the managers are nice and helpful. The roads to get to the park are very narrow and windy. The website offers directions to avoid the covered bridge which cannot handle most large RVs. We camped at Pequea Creek Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Twin Bridge Meadow Family Campground, Chambersburg, Pennsylvania

Date of Stay: May, 2015 - $32.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed at Twin Bridge Campground over Memorial Day Weekend. This was the only campground with a site available at the last minute, and that was only because of a cancellation. If you look at the pictures it looks crowded; however, we stayed at site #48 which was on the creek and there was a decent amount of space between sites. The dogs loved playing in the creek. There was a nice "service" on Sunday with Gospel singers. It was nearby some great state parks. There was a bridge on route 30 we had to pass under which didn't allow much space, so if your RV is large you might want to find another way. Overall we really enjoyed our stay. We camped at Twin Bridge Meadow Family Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
