Old Orchard Campground, Oscoda, Michigan

Date of Stay: April, 2015 - $14.00
Overall Rating:

We were very pleased with this campground. We stayed for 6 weeks. The price above reflects a monthly rate. Keep in mind this is a very outdoorsy place. Roads are paved but sites are all dirt, little grass. I don't see this as a downfall, we prefer more rustic places. Also, there are no sewer hookups anywhere in the park. There is a dump station, but if you plan on staying more than a couple of days in an RV, I would say a honeywagon is a must. You can have campfires, but there are no rings. So bring your own or just dig a hole. This park has lots of extremely large sites for any size rig. The sites do vary in size so you just have to look around. Good size roads to maneuver on also. Beautiful views of the lake from pretty much any spot. A limit of 4 adults per site but no limit on kids. Clean, peaceful, great place for families. Holidays get quite crowded, but they're very good about booting any rowdy campers immediately. Great camp store on site with reasonable prices, an ice cream shop, and lots of little goodies your kids will run you broke purchasing. Lol. My kids personally couldn't get enough of the magic rainbow fire packets and sour cream and onion crickets. (No they really do sell them and they're actually not terrible) $0.50 hayrides on weekends and occasional activities for kids. Only improvements I would suggest is to have more activities for the kids and make the showers free (currently $0.50 for a 5 minute shower). But for the price you're paying to stay there, you really can't complain. We camped at Old Orchard Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Tawas River RV Park, Tawas City, Michigan

Date of Stay: April, 2015 - $13.00
Overall Rating:

We were very disappointed in this park. The pictures on the website are very deceiving. This is a very trashy looking place. We didn't even stay the night so cannot comment on any of the facilities. We were given a "pull through" site, however it was still at a 90* angle. The roads are extremely narrow. So if you have a 40 ft rv like we do, good luck getting in and out. When we made the turn into the park, we decided almost immediately we were not staying. Trash everywhere, people whose sites looked like junkyards, sketchy character in saggy pants lurking around watching us, dirty river, etc. When we tried to figure out a way to pull out, we actually got stuck in mud. (It hadn't rained in days) We actually had to use a chain hooked up between my Ford E350 passenger van and my husband's Dodge Ram 3500 to tow him and the rv out of the mud. We hightailed it out of there and went to a much nicer place in the next town over. We camped at Tawas River RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Lake Whitney State Park, Whitney, Texas

Date of Stay: March, 2015 - $43.00
Overall Rating:

Overall this was a nice place to stay. I prefer a little more wooded. But that's just personal preference. Big downside was we paid an arm and a leg to stay here. We had an extra vehicle and a couple of extra people (We have 7 children), so we paid out to wazoo in extra charges. Also, they knew that we have a huge rv, yet tried to squeeze us into a tiny spot, even though the park was practically empty. It was not nearly big enough for our rig alone, not to mention our cars. We decided to change spots first, then go to the office and inform them. We didn't think this would be a problem since there was literally 2 other rv's in a loop of 50 sites. It's not like there was a line of campers at the gate. Well we got chewed out by a ranger. We ended up with a huge beautiful site in the end and thoroughly enjoyed the rest of our week long stay there. Just unfortunate it started off rough. Saw lots of deer and turkey. Would definitely return. But now we know to request our favorite site when we check in to avoid any run-ins with the overzealous Rangers. We camped at Lake Whitney State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Thousand Trails Lake Whitney, Whitney, Texas

Date of Stay: February, 2015 - $3.00
Overall Rating:

Stay here was just ok. We stayed for 4 weeks. Sites were teeny tiny. Very wooded. Trees and bushes need serious trimming. We like rustic, but we also like to pull our rv and car in without causing huge gouges. There is a happy medium, they need to work on this. Wifi nonexistent at the sites, which wouldn't be a big deal except they advertise it. Stop advertising if you can't follow through. Kids activities are good in theory, poorly executed. We would show up for an activity just to find out it had been rescheduled or cancelled altogether. Of course, it was off season. But again, don't advertise it. Lots of older people who obviously don't like children. Had to explain to our children more than once to ignore the grumpy old man/woman yelling at them or giving them attitude for no reason. Kind of perplexed as to why older people who hate kids would be hanging out in the "family center" anyway when there's a perfectly good "adult lodge" in the park. Had a run in with the staff on our second to last day of our stay because they were rude to our 10 year old daughter who was just sitting putting together a puzzle in the family center. Would stay again, if we were in the area. I mean, can't beat the price with a TT membership. But would know to take what they advertise as a grain of salt. We camped at Thousand Trails Lake Whitney in a Fifth Wheel.
