Recreation Plantation RV Resort (55+ park), Lady Lake, Florida

Date of Stay: October, 2015 - $26.00
Overall Rating:

We've stayed here several times before and can say that this is very nearly the perfect park if you are are looking to stay for several days. Short-timers will not be able to appreciate what it offers. It caters to the older RV set. The park has nearly 900 large sites with full hookups, two clubhouses with many of the usual indoor and outdoor amenities, including a beautiful heated pool, and 8 new pickleball courts. Privately owned park models make up about 70% of the spaces. Most short-term spaces are grass (some concrete) and nicely shaded. There are no pull-throughs but backing in is obstruction free. The staff could not be more congenial or helpful. The overall attitude is very laid-back. Wi-Fi is available, but for a fee with an outside company. Comcast newly upgraded the cable system and can also supply Internet. Roads are wide and paved, and the grounds are immaculately maintained. We're considering buying a park model for a permanent winter stay. (Rate is $800/mo.) We camped at Recreation Plantation RV Resort (55+ park) in a Fifth Wheel.

This park is adjacent to The Villages with its 200 area restaurants, every shopping venue you can think of, and live, free music every evening on its 3 town squares.

OBX Campground, Kill Devil Hills, North Carolina

Date of Stay: September, 2015 - $60.00
Overall Rating:

This is a very quiet and pleasant campground and it was the first time we have stayed there. We stayed a week (weekly rate) for a family wedding in Duck. It was a little pricey but the area doesn't have many options. We spent very little time there and didn't care about the amenities, which were few. The sites are large and level. Our particular site was very large. We were on the back of the loop so there was a lot of grass behind us which extended to the water. The office people were very friendly and accommodating. A small inlet next to the campground dock leads to a nondescript crab company where we bought a half-dozen large, live, beautiful soft-shells cheaper than we had seen anywhere in the area. We will definitely stay there again. We camped at OBX Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

There is a small restaurant (Salt Box Café) on Colington Road next to the crab company, and even though the food was good, it had zero ambiance and it was not worth the price. The Colington Café, half way back to Croatan Highway, is a much better choice for dinner, and our favorite. And, of course, the Wright Brothers Museum is on the corner of Colington Road, which is a must-see.

Big Texan RV Ranch (formerly Amarillo Ranch RV Park), Amarillo, Texas

Date of Stay: September, 2015 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

Sites are level, large and mostly pull-throughs. Strangely, it doesn't look like it was built as an RV park. Hookups are all good. But, the WiFi needs a major upgrade to be adequate. Picnic table was strangely placed. Heated indoor swimming pool & gift shop. Fenced area to walk your dog. Staff was very friendly, courteous and helpful. Office has many menus for local restaurants and a video library. Close to city conveniences. Adjacent to a water park (that wasn't open in mid-September) and for the curious, the livestock auction is a mile or so away. I-40 is easy to access. Palo Duro Canyon is less than a half hour away and worth the trip. We stayed 2 nights. We camped at Big Texan RV Ranch (formerly Amarillo Ranch RV Park) in a Fifth Wheel.

Spring Creek Marina & RV Park, San Angelo, Texas

Date of Stay: September, 2015 - $37.00
Overall Rating:

My wife and I are in our 70s and for 35 years have pulled big 5th wheels in every state and province. This was one of the most unfriendly parks we have ever stayed in. Apparently this is a government-owned park which would explain the poor facilities & attitude. It is hardly the park described in its website. Even though the park was about 80% empty & there were some larger sites, we were put into a site that was too short for both rig & truck. The sites were so narrow that when we put our awning out all the way it very nearly touched the slide-out of our neighbor. There was barely room for the picnic table. We paid with the same VISA card we've been using for everything all over the world for 25 years. To my amazement, the counter woman demanded to see my driver's license-boss' policy she said. In the 45 years I have used credit cards, I think I may have been asked for ID only a half-dozen times. It is very offensive and insulting. I also had to put my signature on a list of rules and regulations that bordered on onerous. One of them is that if you have not exited promptly by the 2:00pm checkout time, you must pay additional fees. The next day, not feeling comfortable in this particular park, we cancelled our intention to stay there longer. At 1:50pm we were closing the last hatch to leave when a park employee arrived. She said, "OK, you're leaving. I was about to put a notice on your door." Adding annoyance to injury, we woke up in the morning without any water. A park employee wandering the area seemed totally uninterested and said that it would be back on when a broken water main was fixed. Campgrounds are usually very enjoyable. This one was anything but. We did extend our stay in town, but in a different place. We camped at Spring Creek Marina & RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Knoebels Amusement Resort, Elysburg, Pennsylvania

Date of Stay: August, 2015 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

Knoebels Campground is not a traditional campground. It serves more as convenient accommodations for absolutely the nicest and friendliest amusement park in America. It's kind of like going to Disney World and staying in an onsite accommodation there. The older section is semi-primitive and cramped because it was designed mostly for tents. The newer section has larger sites for RVs, and it also has cabins. But be aware that the park supplies only electric - no other hookups. It is definitely a great place to camp for families, especially ones with kids. Bring along their bikes, the dog, and lots of firewood (or buy it there). The amusement park and the campground are adjacent to each other. A shuttle bus roams throughout the campground and delivers campers to and from the park. Knoebles was voted to have the best park food in the country by the cooking channel. And the best part is that only the park rides cost money. Non-riders pay nothing. The campground is usually pretty full all summer so you'd be wise to call for a reservation before just showing up. There is nothing elaborate about this campground but its congeniality and the fun you'll have makes it all worthwhile. Our family has spent 3 days there every year for the last 13, and we have our site reserved for 2016. We camped at Knoebels Amusement Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
