Stone Creek RV Park, Schertz, Texas

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

Very nice park. Sites have concrete, covered patio with picnic table (minor issue - our awning hit the patio roof, so we couldn't fully open it). Hot tub was actually hot (most parks seem to have warm tubs). Huge rec room, although there were no planned activities while we were there (2 weeks). Fairly large pull-through sites. The sites were somewhat slanted to the left, but this was easily overcome with levelers and meant that the tanks drained easily (sewer hole was lower than hookups). Fresh water spigot was 20 ft from sewer, which was nice for cleanliness, but we needed to use a long hose. Only negative - the trains are frequent and noisy (they blow their horns because the local train crossing only have markers, not crossing gates). We camped at Stone Creek RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

The Alamo (better than expected). Alamo 4D experience (so-so). The Buckhorn - wow! Zoo - best we've been to. Botanical Gardens - very good. HEB - wow (better than any we've ever seen except maybe City Market in Bothell WA). Naegelin's bakery (a decent bakery, but not a destination worth a special trip). Friesenhaus (great German fried potatoes, strudel was so-so). Tejas rodeo (lots of fun, especially for pre-teens). Other things (e.g. Schlitterbahn, upscale skeet ranges, huge shopping malls).

Katy Lake RV Resort, Katy, Texas

Date of Stay: April, 2016 - $29.00
Overall Rating:

We were here during the big 4/2016 Houston flood. There were several road closures in the area due to flooding, but the RV park was not flooded (lots of rain, but the park roads and most sites were ok). There were storm-related power outages, and due to that the hot tub wasn't working at first (they got it fixed after a couple of days). The WiFi signal was never very good. The laundry room was very good. Sites were a little narrow, but nicely constructed. We camped at Katy Lake RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

The Houston museum of natural history was quite good. The health museum was disappointing. We expected to see the history of medicine, but instead it's just a bunch of plastic displays for children on basic human body functions and health. Not bad if that's what you were expecting, probably a good teaching tool for 10-12 year olds.

Jamaica Beach RV Park, Galveston, Texas

Date of Stay: April, 2016 - $34.00
Overall Rating:

"Faded glory". This park looks like it used to be great, but hasn't had any maintenance in a long time. There is a mini-golf course with pirate statues and sharks and such amusing things, but some of the arms are broken off of the pirates, and the paint is peeling. There is a huge hot tub, but there are piles of dirt on the bottom of it. Even the "spa" signs are broken. The adult swimming pool looks promising until you look closely - broken concrete, dirt covering the bottom. On the plus side, the staff were very friendly, the sites are nice. They have a couple hundred movie DVDs available to be borrowed by campers, sort of like a library. WiFi was so-so, which is better than most parks we've been to. I suspect (and hope) that the maintenance issues will be taken care of for the summer (high) season. We camped at Jamaica Beach RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Moody's rain forest was excellent, the aquarium was good. The Ocean Star energy museum was excellent. The Houston Space Center was a weird combination of Smithsonian Institute artifacts and carnival arcade. Both awesome and disappointing.

Orange Texas RV Resort, Orange, Texas

Date of Stay: April, 2016 - $18.00
Overall Rating:

Mostly long-term construction workers, not a tourist place. Laundry/rec room was huge, but filthy (it was never cleaned during the 2 weeks we stayed). We had to wash out the washers before using them. Sites were covered with "decorative" 3-6 inch rocks - difficult to walk on, especially for older, unsteady persons. Entry road almost required 4-wheel drive. Some interior roads were nicely paved, others were dirt jeep trails. Train noises were noticeable, but surprisingly not irritating. They were so long it almost became soothing background noise. WiFi was non-existent at the site, but we were able to get Time-Warner cable internet for about $6 for a month, and it was quite good. We camped at Orange Texas RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

The Texas energy museum was better than expected - it wasn't just about oil, it addressed the whole history of energy usage by humans. The Texas Fireman's museum was small, but had interesting early fire-fighting equipment and history. The Stark western art museum was pretty good, we especially enjoyed the Remington, Russell, and Audubon displays. The Shangri-La Botanical Gardens was disappointing. It looked like it was once great, but has been allowed to deteriorate over the years.

Frenchman's Wilderness Campground, Breaux Bridge, Louisiana

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

Very large sites, lots of grass and trees. Park mgmt put on a nice event for Easter. Lots of kids had fun. On the other hand, our site was so non-level we had to buy extra leveling blocks. Site was muddy. The sewer drain was on a concrete island that was so high our tanks wouldn't gravity drain. WiFi was weak, intermittent, and slow even when working. Most of the campers seemed to be non-permanent locals. Apparently this camp is a weekend campsite for locals, so we were outsiders. Unlike most camps, we didn't meet any friendly neighbors. Laundry room was filthy (had to wash out the washer and dryer before using them), but that may have been just bad luck due to a messy previous user. We camped at Frenchman's Wilderness Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Boomtown Casino RV Park, Biloxi, Mississippi

Date of Stay: March, 2016 - $29.00
Overall Rating:

A parking lot with hookups. No amenities, not even an office. Check-in is at the casino across the street, and they barely knew what to do. They couldn't find our reservation, called another facility, found the reservation, didn't assign us a site, didn't know what to do with the site assignment paperwork. We had two reservations - here and their sister park at Hollywood casino in Bay St. Louis. At Boomtown, they "found" our reservation, but then cancelled our second one without telling us (the folks at Hollywood recovered nicely the next week though). Overall - don't stop in Biloxi as an RV'er. We camped at Boomtown Casino RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Biloxi used to be a nice place. It has never recovered from hurricane Katrina 10 years ago. Many streets are now dirt and several are closed for construction. The whole place now seems like "the bad part of town". The Boomtown buffet was a bright spot - not outstanding, but pretty good. Expensive though - make sure you go on a senior 50% discount day.

Hollywood Casino RV Park, Bay Saint Louis, Mississippi

Date of Stay: March, 2016 - $29.00
Overall Rating:

RV park office was closed (for repairs it appeared, not sure). Check-in was by phone to the casino hotel front desk. Staff at the desk was amazing - our reservation had been screwed up by Boomtown casino, she fixed it and even made sure our Good Sam discount was applied. Also, we had a prescription that was mailed to us at the wrong address (it arrived at Hollywood after we'd left, it was supposed to go to our next location). Monica put us in contact with the Hollywood casino shipping folks, who sent the package to us at our next location.

The park itself is very nice. Extra-large level sites, large trees, picnic tables, free ice machine, small (2+2) but clean laundry room.

One issue: WiFi had limited range - we drove around the park and picked a site with good reception - but many sites didn't. We camped at Hollywood Casino RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

All About Relaxing RV Park, Theodore, Alabama

Date of Stay: March, 2016 - $33.00
Overall Rating:

The words that come to mind... spotless, decorations, campfire get-togethers. The sites are larger than in most parks, with concrete pads and patios, including a well-built picnic table. This is a new RV park - less than a year old. The owners are putting a lot of work into making it a standout place. They added an outdoor oversized chess setup while we were there, and were planning on adding a horseshoe pit next. We camped at All About Relaxing RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Old Town Campground 'N Retreat, Old Town, Florida

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

The website says "full hookups", but only some sites have sewer - ours did not. Sand site, no social activities. Strange rule about lights off after 7 PM to avoid interfering with infrared security cameras.

On the plus side, it was very quiet. We camped at Old Town Campground 'N Retreat in a Travel Trailer.

Pros: Great social get-togethers. Pot-luck breakfast was amazing. Poker and game nights were fun. Laundry room was clean and normal. RV-washing hose connections in various places around park - no charge. Good park roads.

Cons: WiFi is unsecured. Sites are very narrow. We camped at Emerald Beach RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Ho-Hum RV Park, Carrabelle, Florida

Date of Stay: February, 2016 - $28.00
Overall Rating:

Amazingly clean - they even raked the "dirt" (sand and crushed seashells). WiFi was inconsistent - sometimes it was great, sometimes non-existent. No organized activities - but then they didn't claim there were any, so that isn't really a problem. Friendly staff and campers. Overall, their "ho-hum" relaxing presentation is quite accurate. If you're looking to party all night, keep looking. If you're looking to relax, maybe do some casual fishing or kayaking - this is a good spot. We camped at Ho-Hum RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Panama City Beach RV Resort, Panama City Beach, Florida

Date of Stay: February, 2016 - $54.00
Overall Rating:

Very clean, nice paved sites, cobblestone streets.

Big negative: the wifi signal is so weak, we had to go to the clubhouse to do anything online.

Small negative: the "Patches" bar across the street plays very loudly until 10 PM. It's pretty good music, and they do have very good food, but it gets a bit old having to turn up my TV to hear it over the loudspeakers. We camped at Panama City Beach RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Lakewood Travel Park, Hudson, Florida

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

Managers are great! Many permanent residents - very friendly, but with a wide variety of site neatness. Lots of social activities where even us non-permanents were welcome. WiFi was so bad we had Brighthouse service for the month we were there. Some road noise from SR52, and a machine shop to the east was noisy. Sites are a bit small - our 30' trailer barely fit, and our pickup had to be parked in an odd position to avoid blocking the road. We camped at Lakewood Travel Park in a Travel Trailer.
