Fleming Park/Blue Springs Campground, Blue Springs, Missouri

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

Large gravel site. Easy to level our trailer. Although the park is close to major roads and shops it is quiet and the loop we were in was very quiet and had a rural feel. A lot of sites have good space between them but be aware that the sites on the plan that look close together e.g. 12 &13, 7 & 8, are all one gravel area. More like a family site. We camped at Fleming Park/Blue Springs Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Pomme De Terre State Park, Pittsburg, Missouri

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

Great campground with good water views from lots of sites. Note there are 2 State park campgrounds - Hermitage and Pittsburg. We stayed in Hermitage. We had no trouble leveling trailer. Only one ablution block for the whole campsite so toilets and showers not close to most sites. Internal roads are all paved. Lots of Canadian geese, other birds plus squirrels in campground. Popular boating and fishing lake. Boat ramp next to the campground. Our neighbours had their boat tied up on the lake edge right in front of their campsite. We camped at Pomme De Terre State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Great seafood market only about 200 yards from the entrance to the State park. As others have mentioned we went into New Orleans by driving to the Algiers Ferry and catching it to Canal St. $2 each way for adults, $1 for seniors. Just be aware the ferry schedule starts a lot later in the weekend

Tips for other Campers:

Close to Camping World. Also beside Enchanted Trails RV Park (about a mile away) is Randy's propane. He recertified our propane cylinders. He does tank testing and filling. He also stocks a lot of other RV parts and has lots of good helpful information.

Tonto National Forest / Houston Mesa Campground, Payson, Arizona

Date of Stay: November, 2017 - $24.00
Overall Rating:

For a NFS campground I thought the fee was far too much. $24/night! Other reviews had said $12 so don't know when the price doubled!! The sites are nicely spaced through the trees. Roads and sites paved but as someone said, quite a few would be hard for larger rigs to level. A very small lot of firewood is $7. Showers $3 for 5 minutes. And yes, they are still charging for campers to use dump station. We camped at Tonto National Forest / Houston Mesa Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Catalina State Park, Tucson, Arizona

Date of Stay: November, 2017 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

Great bathroom facilities. Tiled showers. Sealed roads and parking but my one complaint is the picnic table and bbq area were dirt. Also think $30 is a bit high for SP but that seems to be AZ policy everywhere. Great walks in the park and a good shopping centre across the road from the entrance to the park. We camped at Catalina State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Brantley Lake State Park, Carlsbad, New Mexico

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $14.00
Overall Rating:

Great value for water and electric. Dump station only half mile away. Lake views but camp is not at lake edge. Saw Park Rangers and Campground hosts every day but still rubbish wasnt't always cleared away if left by other campers. Some walking trails and 2km road to park gate is safe for bike riding - little traffic. We camped at Brantley Lake State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Bottomless Lakes State Park, Roswell, New Mexico

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $14.00
Overall Rating:

Great value for water and electric. Dump station at the gate and old, but tidy bathroom block. Lovely lake. Wonderful for a swim to cool off on the hot days. Only downside was flies and biting insects so you do need insect repellant. We camped at Bottomless Lakes State Park in a Travel Trailer.
