Vacation Inn RV Resort, West Palm Beach, Florida

Date of Stay: January, 2017 - $70.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed at Vacation Inn Resorts for 12 nights. This resort is primarily for owners - many Canadians and Northeast snowbirds. Renters must have a Class A motorhome not older than 10 years. There are many 5th wheels in the resort, but those are site owners who have been grandfathered. The positives: Landscaping is beautiful! The resort, and the individual owners, take great pride in their resort, and it shows. Very lush. Amenities include two pools and spas; tennis courts; lots of activities to sign up for. Daily trash pickup. Good roads for bicycling, and there is a large brackish pond in the back of the resort. Although I didn't fish there, I did see some fairly decent redfish along the banks (and 1 gator). Shopping is close, and there is an executive-type golf course across the street. A few items of concern: It would be helpful if the resort rules could be posted on line, or provided as reservation confirmation. We had no idea as to the check-in time, or that we could only have one car in the resort (additional vehicles must be parked outside the gate). As others have noted, the roads are very narrow. You must unhook your toad as soon as you enter the gate, before you get to the divided streets. When you find the office, you have two choices: either park on the street (which will block inbound traffic), or enter a small parking lot on the right. When you check in, make sure you have $30 in cash, as you will need to make a deposit to get your electronic gate key. This was a bit of concern on checkout, as we were leaving on a Sunday, but the office is closed on Sunday, and only open until noon on Saturday. This meant that after we turned in our key on Saturday to get our deposit back we could leave, but could not re-enter. We did not use the washers or dryers, as you must purchase a card for $5, then add money to it in order use the W/D. We didn't think that was cost efficient for a short stay. All in all a nice resort, but more suited to owners. We camped at Vacation Inn RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Overall Rating:

Enjoyed our 2-night stay. Folks at the front desk were very helpful. You'll need a special box to receive cable TV, which you can get at the front desk. Free limo rides to the Big Texan for dinner. Free coffee and donuts in the office every morning! We camped at Big Texan RV Ranch (formerly Amarillo Ranch RV Park) in a Motorhome.

Peregrine Pines FamCamp (Military FamCamp), US Air Force Academy, Colorado

Date of Stay: November, 2016 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

We are wrapping up our second month before heading South for the winter. We have really enjoyed our stay here! The sites are spacious, and the Famcamp is well maintained. All of the sites are treed, but we didn't have any problems getting satellite TV with our portable dish. However, I'm sure that's not the case with all sites. There are train tracks around 150 yards East of the Famcamp, and trains are running at all hours. You will need a pressure regulator to use the water at the sites. In addition, there is a graded crossing around 1/10 mile North of the Famcamp, so Northbound trains are blowing their horn pretty much directly behind the Famcamp. The Western-most sites are a bit quieter from the trains, but as they are near the entrance, receive more road traffic, and therefore more dust. The picnic area adjacent to the Famcamp has a nice playground, and there are many areas to hike. In addition, the Academy's two golf courses are just a few minutes away from the Famcamp. They do have limited free WiFi at the office and the two bathhouses, or you can rent a Jetpack at the office. Should you need RV supplies while staying here, there is a Walmart a couple of miles North of the AF Academy North gate. We camped at Peregrine Pines FamCamp (Military FamCamp) in a Motorhome.
