Lake City RV Resort (formerly Oaks "N" Pines), Lake City, Florida

Date of Stay: March, 2010 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

This is probably the nicest "overnight" campground that we have encountered (and thus use each year on our Florida trips). Exceptionally helpful owner-staff. One is always escorted to the campsite selected, and aided in parking with easy access to hookups. It should be mentioned that road noise from I-10 is present, as the park is only about 100 yards from the Interstate. We aren't bothered by this but some may be more sensitive. We paid the Passport America rate for full hookups, with a discount for cash payment. We camped at Lake City RV Resort (formerly Oaks "N" Pines) in a Travel Trailer.

Fort Chiswell RV Park, Max Meadows, Virginia

Date of Stay: November, 2009 - $29.00
Overall Rating:

We paid the Good Sam discount rate. This is a clean and well-kept but not outstanding park mostly used by overnighters from Interstates 77 and 81. We have used it several times over the years, and gladly return. We camped at Fort Chiswell RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Cartersville / Cassville-White KOA, Cartersville, Georgia

Date of Stay: November, 2009 - $34.00
Overall Rating:

Friendly, courteous staff. Lower-level sites assigned to overnighters were easily accessible and level. Those higher on the hill appeared to be less so. The interstate is about 1/4 mile away, and those sensitive to road noise may find it annoying (not us). We camped at Cartersville / Cassville-White KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Ja-Mar RV Resort, South, Port Richey, Florida

Date of Stay: November, 2009 - $21.00
Overall Rating:

We paid the Passport America discount daily rate (for which the minimum stay is 7 days - and there is no maximum period on the rate). This suburban Port Richey "travel park" is an older facility that is still owned and managed by its founding family. The hospitality, modernization, and upkeep is top notch. About 65% of the park residents are seasonal. This is basically an adult park (but children as visitors and/or overnighters are welcome). It is a great place in which to settle to savor the Tampa/Tarpon Springs/Clearwater area attractions. We camped at Ja-Mar RV Resort, South in a Travel Trailer.

Lake City RV Resort (formerly Oaks "N" Pines), Lake City, Florida

Date of Stay: November, 2009 - $22.00
Overall Rating:

We paid the Passport America discount rate. This is a small but well-managed park with pleasant and helpful owners. For those sensitive to road noise, this may not be the best choice, as it's within 100 yards of the interstate. For us, it is an ideal overnight stop. We camped at Lake City RV Resort (formerly Oaks "N" Pines) in a Travel Trailer.

South of the Border, Dillon, South Carolina

Date of Stay: October, 2009 - $22.00
Overall Rating:

Our rate included the AARP discount. Once again, convenient large sites with full hookups in a well-maintained but well-worn park. There was no faint odor of the sewer plant on this visit. It remains a bargain stop at a location which makes it almost too convenient to pass by. We camped at South of the Border in a Travel Trailer.

Deer Ridge Camping Resort, Richmond, Indiana

Date of Stay: July, 2009 - $18.00
Overall Rating:

We paid the Passport America rate for full hookups. This is the fourth time in six years we've stopped at this campground. A great deal of work has been accomplished in the past year, with upgrades to the buildings and facilities. The park staff was pleasant, and helped us back into the chosen campsite. We would comfortably return again. We camped at Deer Ridge Camping Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Camp Lakewood Campground & RV Park, Effingham, Illinois

Date of Stay: July, 2009 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

We paid the Good Sam discount rate for full hookups. This a small and exceptionally neat RV park. Staff are cheerful. Virtually all sites are shaded by large, mature trees, and the size of the sites varies. We noted that site assignments were carefully made to reflect the size (and presence or absence of slides) of each RV. Virtually the entire park are is graveled, and contrasting colors of gravel are used to define the road and site areas. Fishing (without license) is available in the lake at the edge of the campground. We camped at Camp Lakewood Campground & RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Cape Camping & RV Park, Cape Girardeau, Missouri

Date of Stay: July, 2009 - $29.00
Overall Rating:

We paid the Good Sam discount rate for full hookups. The campground was neatly maintained. All sites are pull-throughs with full hookups. The laundry was spotless, with very new machines in working order. The office staffer was polite and pleasant. About 50 percent of the RVs in the park appear to be present for an extended period. It represented a convenient overnight facility to us, and we would gladly use it again. We camped at Cape Camping & RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tom Sawyer's Mississippi River Park, West Memphis, Arkansas

Date of Stay: July, 2009 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

We paid the Good Sam discount rate for full hookups. This is a most unusual campground. One reaches it by driving up a road over the West Memphis protective levee to an area on the low bluff overlooking the Mississippi River. From those campsites (or from the bluff-edge benches provided) one can watch barge traffic being pushed up or down the river throughout the day. The river view campsites are all pull-through with full hookups, were well-graveled, but were treeless. The campground staff was hospitable and good humored. We consider this a great place to simply kick back and relax. We camped at Tom Sawyer's Mississippi River Park in a Travel Trailer.

Park Ridge RV Campground, Van Buren, Arkansas

Date of Stay: July, 2009 - $23.00
Overall Rating:

We paid the Good Sam discount rate. This is a nice campground that is beginning to slip downward. Pro: The sites are generously shaded by mature trees, and all hookups are in working order. The teen-age girl running the office was polite and competent, and showed us to our site. Con: Many of the sites need a new layer of gravel, as does the inner camp drive. The existing stones have begun to sink into the dust and mud. Two of the 3 washers in the laundry were is service, but both groaned so noisily that one feared they couldn't finish their loads. The laundry was covered with lint and dust, and fixtures and picnic tables throughout the park show signs of recent neglect. A plumbing firm was based in a small building at the rear of the park. It seemed as though the adults were having the children run the park. They were trying, but adult park maintenance support was needed . We camped at Park Ridge RV Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Rockwell RV Park, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma

Date of Stay: July, 2009 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

We paid the Good Sam discounted rate. The campground has large sites and trees. The cable TV hookup is wired only to every other campsite (see later comment). It has an indoor pool, and complimentary newspapers and coffee, and free muffins from 7:30-9 AM. When entering the office, we waited over 5 minutes for someone to appear. The staffer was polite but visibly unmotivated when signing us in. He neglected to tell us that we'd been put on a site with no cable (and had no cables to loan to reach an adjoining site). We also noted that at the bottom of the receipt we received was a statement reading, "WARNING: THIS PARK SUBJECT TO FLASH FLOODING." As there was a "dry" forecast for the next 24 hours, we decided to stay. We would have rated the campground a 9 if the customer service had equaled the facilities. We camped at Rockwell RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

We paid the Good Sam discounted rate. This campground is well within the outskirts of the city. It has friendly staff and generous-sized pull-through sites which are level and well-graveled. A computer is available in the office for camper use without charge, as is free coffee. We would gladly return. We camped at Los Suenos de Santa Fe RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Junction West RV Park, Grand Junction, Colorado

Date of Stay: July, 2009 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

We paid the Good Same rate for full hookups. This is an all gravel campground in Colorado's high desert area which has, however, a very well maintained green grassy "park" area. There are fence rows between campsites. All sites have a magnificent view of the mountains. Everything is clean and very well maintained. Staff are courteous. Although there is no pool, there is a "fountain of fun" area for children. We camped at Junction West RV Park in a Travel Trailer.
