DeGray Lake Resort State Park, Bismarck, Arkansas

Date of Stay: November, 2019 - $22.00
Overall Rating:

DeGray Lake is really pretty and the state park offers a great deal of activities: golf, horseback riding, tennis and basketball courts, hiking, Lodge and Shoreline Restaurant, yurts, a marina, and fishing. There are three camping loops; I walked all of them and we actually stayed in Camp Area C. The sites are set into heavy forest and only a few have lakeside views. The main roads were well maintained and easy even for big rigs to manage. The sites were asphalt and could use a little attention. Our site (#63) was level and amply long at 55 feet, but backing uphill to get to the level part of the pad was a little challenging. I don't think all of the sites were like that. The trees right next to the site could have used trimming. The actual site was lovely with a rather large gravel patio, tent pad, fire ring, picnic table and bar-b-q pit. We had 30 amp and water only, but the dump station was easy to get in and out of and could be accessed and used from both sides. We were looking for fall colors on our trip and this park definitely produced some fine colors. The restaurant provided a lovely buffet breakfast and nice dinner options with reasonable prices and a very accommodating staff. We camped at DeGray Lake Resort State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Lake Ouachita State Park, Mountain Pine, Arkansas

Date of Stay: November, 2019 - $36.00
Overall Rating:

I am so impressed with the state parks in Arkansas, and Lake Ouachita State Park might just be the crown jewel. There is literally nothing negative that we can find here. The sites are spacious, very level, and long enough for big rigs, trucks and even a side parking area for an extra vehicle. Our site is a full hook up with 50 amp and the utilities are in great working order. Each site has a good size gravel and concrete patio with a picnic table, Bar-b-q, and large fire pit. All of the roads are easy to navigate and well maintained. This park has a plethora of affordable programs, tours, and activities. We took the Eagle Watch Boat Tour of the lake and saw two bald eagles along the way. Very impressive birds and our guide was knowledgeable and interesting in her presentation. This park has cabins, group camping, a marina, boat launches, hiking, and their very own hot springs. We had only one bar on AT&T and Verizon, but there are several spots throughout the park that offer coverage. We were in Camping Area A, Site #29. We camped at Lake Ouachita State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Daisy State Park, Kirby, Arkansas

Date of Stay: November, 2019 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

Daisy State Park was a great stay for us. After reading some of the reviews and then upon arrival after viewing our reserved sight, I was concerned that our 40' 5th wheel would not fit. Our site was a back in right on the lake on the little peninsula section of the park. The site did require some back and forth action to get it into the site and more importantly the site, as I noticed others sites did as well, required a fair amount of leveling front to back. (Back being lower than the front) However, after making those adjustments the site was wonderful and we had a great view of the lake. We had plenty of room to park the truck sideways on our site because there was enough room for our back end to extend beyond the actual asphalt. The roads throughout the park, all asphalt, were easy to manage. The sites had lovely, extra large gravel patios with a picnic table, large fire pit, and a bar-b-q pit. We found plenty of places to hike; one short hike inside the park and an ATV trail just outside of the park. We hiked both; the ATV trail we hiked a few of the 31 total miles before turning back and it was a lovely hike into the woods and across creeks. The staff at the visitor's center was extremely helpful with great area information. All of the utilities (water and 30/50 amp electricity) worked well and the park in general is very well maintained. There is a dump station for your convenience. Other than the leveling issue, we could not find anything else to cite on the con side of the pro/cons of this park. We would definitely stay here again. We had both AT&T and Verizon coverage, but the park is too wooded for good satellite service. We camped at Daisy State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Buckhorn Creek COE, Jefferson, Texas

Date of Stay: November, 2019 - $16.00
Overall Rating:

Corp of Engineer parks are generally good to excellent as far as my experience goes; Buckhorn Creek COE is not exception. The sites are level and each with a crushed granite patio with a picnic table and a fire ring. Most of the sites have a great view of the lake and are decently spaced so that you are not on top of your neighbor. All of the utilities were in great working order - these sites have water and electric (30/50amp) but no sewer hook up. There is a double sided dump station easily accessible on your way in or out of the park. The roads were paved and easy to maneuver even with a big rig and the sites extra long, giving plenty of room to park your vehicle at the site. The staff was friendly and helpful and the park was extremely clean and tidy. This was our second time at this park and we will most likely be back again when in this area. We camped at Buckhorn Creek COE in a Fifth Wheel.

Peach Country RV Park, Stonewall, Texas

Date of Stay: October, 2019 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

We have stayed at this park several times, so this review is based on more than just a one night stay. We enjoy the Texas hill country for many reasons and after inspecting the other parks in the area, this park has become our "home" when we visit. Peach Country RV Park is our choice for many reasons, such as the owner/staff is friendly and knows the area well. All of the roads within the park are gravel and extra wide, making is easy for big rigs to navigate. The sites are extra long, level, and constructed of crushed granite. Each site has a concrete patio and picnic table located on the grass between sites. There are both pull-through and back in sites; all are full hook-ups with both 30 and 50 amp electrical. Utilities have worked great with each of our visits. Amenities onsite include a nice, large recreation hall with sparkling clean restrooms and shower attached. All along the covered porch are wooden rocking chairs and a nice picnic area and grill are located just to the side of the rec hall. There is a fenced dog park and one rental cabin onsite. We camped at Peach Country RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

The park is conveniently located on the Wine Trail and close to Fredericksburg shopping, dining, and local events. There are 56 vineyards along the Trail as well as breweries and distilleries. So, if you want a "home" for the Wine Trail, perhaps I'll see you there. Oh, and please drink responsibly and drive safe. We enjoy the wine country and our favorite place to eat is Crossroads Saloon and Steakhouse in downtown Fredericksburg. Thursday night is 1/2 price steaks and bottles of wine. The town is known for many festivals, arts & crafts shows, and a variety of great shops and bakeries. And as mentioned in the review, The Texas Hill Country Wine Trail.

Jim Hogg Park COE, Georgetown, Texas

Date of Stay: October, 2019 - $13.00
Overall Rating:

We have stayed at another Corp of Engineers park on Lake Georgetown several times and loved it. This time we decided to try Jim Hogg park located across the same lake and now this is my new favorite park. There are so many of the sites in this park (loop with sites 1-78) with great views of the water, and that is something I am always looking for. The sites in our loop were asphalt as were the roads throughout the park. Trees in the park were beautifully trimmed, making access in the park big rig friendly. Our site, #44, was not level, but that was easily taken care of with a board under the wheels on the right side. The water and 50 amp hookups were easily accessed and in great working order. Each site comes with a covered patio and picnic table, bar-b-q pit and fire pit. I walked the entire park and found only one hiking trail, but the park roads gave some great views. The other camping loop, sites 79-148 were nice, but wooded and did not have lake views as nice as the those found in the loop we were in. I did not use the restroom or showers. There are two dump stations in this park. We will definitely stay at Jim Hogg Park again and again. We camped at Jim Hogg Park COE in a Fifth Wheel.

Speegleville Park COE , Waco, Texas

Date of Stay: October, 2019 - $26.00
Overall Rating:

First of all, I personally think you can't go wrong when you choose a Corps of Engineers park. Overall, they are just good, clean, parks that have some access to water. Speegleville Campground is located on Waco Lake, which was a much larger body of water than I had anticipated. With only 30 RV sites and 2 shelters this park was easy to get around and a nice little respite from travel and road noise. All of the roads were asphalt and very easy to navigate. Each site was asphalt as well and came with a covered patio, picnic table, bar-b-q pit, and a fire pit. The sites were well maintained and the water and electric in good working order, conveniently located. Our site, #29, was not level without the use of a couple of boards, but not a big deal. Sites 1-4, 23 - 25 and 28 probably have the best lakeview, but all of the sites have some kind of view. This park does not have sewer hook ups at the sites, but has a large dump station that can handle two units at a time. The restrooms were clean and otherwise rather standard; I did not use the showers in the same building. The staff were extremely nice and helpful. We used this as a base camp for exploring Waco, Texas, and would most definitely stay here again. Oh, and don't forget to use your Interagency Pass when making reservations. We forgot and paid 26.00 per night, but with our discount it would have been $13.00 per night. We camped at Speegleville Park COE in a Fifth Wheel.

Hickory Creek COE, Lewisville, Texas

Date of Stay: September, 2019 - $15.00
Overall Rating:

We have stayed at Hickory Creek COE before and will no doubt stay here again and again. Corp of Engineer parks have a great reputation and it has been our experience they have earned that reputation. This park is on the banks of a large lake (Lake Lewisville) and the grounds are wooded with trails cut for hiking. All roads and sites are asphalt and level. There is no sewer connection in this park, but there are dump stations available. The utilities are easily accessed and worked well. Our site had 50 amp. There is plenty of room between sites and each site has a picnic table and fire ring. And many of the sites have at least a partial view of the lake. We had great coverage with both Verizon and AT&T. However, as you might suspect, satellite was a bit iffy with the number of trees. You can't have it all folks; nevertheless, this park is a real gem as far as I am concerned.

Cedar Valley RV Park , Guthrie, Oklahoma

Date of Stay: September, 2019 - $31.00
Overall Rating:

I'm not sure what the criteria is for a park to advertise as a "resort," but I would not classify this park as a resort. Cedar Valley RV is a no frills park that is at least 3/4 full with monthly residences. The upside to that is the people were all friendly and their units were not run down. The park is located outside of town and even though right on the highway, there is not a lot of traffic and noise was not an issue. The roads within the park were either asphalt or gravel or a combination of the two and the roads were easy to manage with a big rig. The concrete sites were level and the utilities were conveniently located and worked well. All sites are pull-through and have full hook ups. Most sites had trees for shade, which was very nice. There is a laundry, restrooms, showers, a horseshoe pit, and a meeting room on the property. We had great coverage for AT&T and Verizon and were able to use our satellite for the tv. The park does offer free wifi. All in all this is not great park, but it is not a bad park either - just not what I would consider a resort destination.

Deer Creek Valley RV Park, Topeka, Kansas

Date of Stay: September, 2019 - $41.00
Overall Rating:

Wow, this park truly deserves the vote of "excellent" because it is that good. All of the roads and pads are concrete and very well maintained or else they are brand new. The space between sites is really generous with beautiful, thick grass. The utilities are easy to access and worked great. Site lengths are the longest I think we have ever had before. The pool, playground, and dog park as well as all of the common grassy areas are all immaculate. The park feels secluded and is buffered from noise by thick woods. Verizon, AT&T, and satellite worked well within the park, even though if you prefer you can use the cable for tv that is a part of the nightly fee.

Camp A Way, Lincoln, Nebraska

Date of Stay: September, 2019 - $55.00
Overall Rating:

Camp A Way is a really nice park surrounded by and among mature trees with a creek running on one side. The main road is asphalt and the other roads and all of the pads are gravel. All roads are easy to navigate and the sites are nice and long. We had a pull through site, but they also have back in sites available. The utilities were easy to access and worked great. Some sites had lovely patios with porch-type swings; our site had a picnic table and fire pit. There are some spaces that appeared to be monthly sites, but that did not take away from the park at all. And even though this park is right off the highway, the noise level was negligible. We had coverage on both Verizon and AT&T and used our satellite for TV coverage. However, the cost of the site includes cable should you prefer. There were a number of activities available for kids, playscape, pool, oversized chess board, arcade/game room, and what looked like a water park feature. I used the laundry room and it and the machines were clean and in great working order. We camped at Camp A Way in a Fifth Wheel.

Newton / Des Moines East KOA, Newton, Iowa

Date of Stay: September, 2019 - $47.00
Overall Rating:

This is a very nice park and the staff is helpful and friendly. All of the roads and sites are gravel with grass between sites. The pull through sites are level and plenty long to disconnect and park on your site. The roads are all easy to navigate for a big rig. There are large, mature trees, giving most of the sites plenty of shade and some of the sites have lovely patios. It appears that the utilities are all located conveniently and in our site we can attest that they were in good working order. Each site includes a picnic table and fire pit. I did not use the bath/showers/laundry but did peek in and all were neat and tidy as was the rest of the park. There is a very nice common area complete with a large fire pit and comfy chairs all around. Other amenities include, two playgrounds, swimming pool, fishing pond, sandpit, GaGa pit, and disc Golf to keep everyone outside and busy. There is also a hiking trail that apparently leads to a park; I was not able to use it as it was muddy. The only drawbacks to this park and the reason I gave it a 3 out of 5 rating is the location. Not only is it just off of the highway but also right across the highway from a speedway - so you can expect road noise for sure and more noise during the race season. AT&T and Verizon worked well in the park and we used our satellite for TV coverage. However, the price of the site includes cable. We camped at Newton / Des Moines East KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Kankakee South KOA, Chebanse, Illinois

Date of Stay: September, 2019 - $49.00
Overall Rating:

Our stay at this campground was enjoyable. We loved the family atmosphere on the weekend and the quiet weekdays. All roads are base and gravel material; some sites have cement pads, but most sites are gravel and grass. Most of the trailer sites are long pull-throughs and easy to maneuver a big rig. Each site is equipped with a fire pit and picnic table and are nestled under large, mature trees, which made for plenty of shade. Even with the trees, we were able to use satellite for our tv. Utilities were in good working order and located well for easy connection. Water pressure was excellent. They offer FHU, 50/30 amp electric; pull-through and back-in sites, tent sites, and deluxe rv sites. Other amenities onsite are a lovely, large game room, laundry room, outdoor volleyball/badminton, playscape, a common fire ring with porch-type swings, a propane filling station, dump station, and hay rides for the kids on the weekends. The only real draw backs to this campground were the stock car races on Friday night that could be heard well into the night, the lack of hiking or walking trails, and that as a standard KOA, the sites are rather close together. For those reasons I felt a 7 out of 10 was the best rating I could give for this park. We camped at Kankakee South KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Kewaunee RV & Campground, LLC, Kewaunee, Wisconsin

Date of Stay: September, 2019 - $42.00
Overall Rating:

This park from what I could tell from the others in the quaint little town is by far the best choice. And it was satisfactory, but nothing more than that. It appeared that a great number of the rigs have been there for a long time so I suspect those are fairy permanent. However, the rigs were for the most part well taken care of and had decorations and flowers and such around their sites. All sites are pull-through and constructed of gravel and grass. Our site, #14 was a 30 AMP/full hook-up site, level and plenty long for us to park our truck onsite and had a fire pit and picnic table. All utilities were in good working order. They also offer 50 AMP full-hook up sites. Roads were easy to maneuver for big rigs, however, both roads and sites could all use a fresh covering of gravel. In all fairness, I saw one road and a few of the sites do have a fresh covering of gravel, so it may be that is being done a little at a time. The park offers a playground, sand volleyball, and a pool for the kids. There is also a laundry, store, game room, restrooms/showers, propane, a dump station, tent and cabins on site as well. The location is quite nice, just out of town, and on higher ground which became rather important because it rained everyday we were there. One park lower and on the same road looked like it would need to be evacuated for flooding. All in all, the park is just a bit tired looking. Metal yard sculptures, flower beds, and the mini-golf (which was under water) need some work. We camped at Kewaunee RV & Campground, LLC in a Fifth Wheel.

Cloquet / Duluth KOA, Cloquet, Minnesota

Date of Stay: September, 2019 - $33.00
Overall Rating:

This KOA is conveniently located about a 30 minute drive into Duluth, Minnesota. The roads inside the campground are all base material with a little gravel mixed in. As we experienced some rain, that made for a muddy mess. More gravel would be welcomed by campers. The sites are long, mostly pull-through, level, and are nearby but an acceptable distance from one another. The grounds have lovely mature trees as you are in a forested area. (FYI - our satellite worked fine through the trees.) Some of the sites have concrete pads with both a picnic table and fire ring. Some have beautiful porch-type swings and a few are covered. Our site had only 30 amp/and water, but there are some full hook-up sites and a dump station. AND we did not use it, but they also have a complimentary pump-out service for those sites without sewer hook-up. The utilities were in great working order. The KOA is tucked away from all road noise, however it is close to an active railroad that does not run on a schedule. It is a transfer line between the two small towns of Cloquet and Carlton and when is goes by you know it - horn and track noise. The owners/staff are friendly and helpful. The check-in material stated that not picking up after your pet would be an extra charge. Our site had not been picked up and we don't have a pet. Once I mentioned it to the office, they promptly took care of it. Other amenities are Showers/Restrooms, laundry (looked clean and well maintained, though I did not use it), trash pickup at your site each morning, game room, outdoor pool, tv room, and store. We camped at Cloquet / Duluth KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

There is a hiking trail accessible, not directly from this KOA, but within a short distance from the campground. At the end of IH 35 is Scenic Hwy. 61 which hugs the west side of Lake Superior all the way to the Canadian border. Split-Rock Lighthouse just inside the State Park is a lovely area. There are several really pretty scenic pull outs and hikes all in that area and don't forget to stop at Betty's Pies.
