Echo Basin Ranch, Mancos, Colorado

Date of Stay: August, 2019 - $27.00
Overall Rating:

This is a very clean, well-maintained campground where you feel you are camping and not jammed into an RV parking lot. Sites are well spaced out and the grounds are beautiful with Ponderosa Pines and scenic views. It's as if we were in a National Forest Service campground, not an RV resort. Although the road into the campground is a county road, it is easily navigated by big rigs (it's just a bit bumpy). Once there, the check-in process was quick and you get an escort to your site. The roads are wide and there is plenty of room to maneuver with no obstacles. The roads as well as all of the sites are gravel, but they are well maintained and groomed. The owners are very pleasant people that take a genuine interest in you enjoying your stay. They take real pride in the maintenance of the grounds, and it shows. There is a pool, a restaurant/bar open 5 nights a week, and some camping supplies at the office. Weddings/reunions are held there on weekends through the summer, but these did not create noise or distractions for those camping. Our site was pretty level and all hookups worked well. The only complaint was that the sewer line ran uphill, but we made it work. We had a side yard with a beautiful view of surrounding fields with plenty of shade from the trees. Wifi was a bit spotty, but adequate. Verizon cell service was 1-2 bars, and trees blocked our satellite reception (other sites had clear shots). But we were there to enjoy the outdoors, and we did. The site had a nice firepit, and the cool summer nights at this altitude were perfect for outdoors. We stayed at the campground for two months and hated to leave. It's just a few minutes from Mancos, which has a few places to eat, and close to Mesa Verde NP. You're not too far from Cortez (west) or Durango (east) to get groceries. Silverton is about 90 minutes away. This was truly a wonderful place to stay to experience SW Colorado. We camped at Echo Basin Ranch in a Motorhome.

Oasis RV Resort, Amarillo, Texas

Date of Stay: June, 2019 - $53.00
Overall Rating:

This park is more of a large parking lot than a campground but it is quite, clean and well maintained. It’s a nice stopover point on I40 or a good spot to stay to see the Cadillac Ranch and the beautiful Palo Duro Canyon State Park. When we were there the road getting to the park was badly chewed up by big trucks at the Loves located near the park. Repairs were underway when we were leaving but watch for potholes. Also, be sure not to go beyond the park entrance or turn left out of the park on Arnot Road with your toad. Arnot Road beyond the park entrance is dirt and gets very soft when it’s been raining. Check in was smooth, roads in the park were wide. The sites are mostly concrete pull through and are level while being plenty long enough to keep your toad attached. Hookups are nice and are positioned to allow you to pull forward, stay hooked up and easily reach the electric, sewer and water. They are all situated so you get afternoon shade. Park WiFi was slow but cable was provided, Verizon signal was good and there were clear satellite shots. The adult spa was dirty but the pool was clean. I do think the rates are overpriced, but it’s a nice park. We camped at Oasis RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Bar H Bar RV Park, Seminole, Oklahoma

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

This is a great park for stopping overnight on I-40. It’s located just off the interstate and is easy to find and to get back onto I-40 when you depart. The Travel Center also has truck diesel pumps with easy access for fueling up at arrival. You check-in at the Travel Center, there’s a place to park your rig that’s out of the way while getting checked in. Roads through the park are gravel and were a little soft after all of the rains, but we had no issues and they were very wide. We selected a concrete site that was very long and very level. Gravel sites are also available. Hookups all worked well and we had good water pressure. The park was quiet at night, we selected an interior site a bit away from I-40 and had no road noise issues. We ended up staying 2 extra days to avoid bad weather in the area we were headed. Verizon service was good, clear satellite shots. Nice for a place to rest up for the next drive. We camped at Bar H Bar RV Park in a Motorhome.

Lazy L&L Campground, New Braunfels, Texas

Date of Stay: May, 2019 - $17.00
Overall Rating:

This is an outstanding park with a great location in the Hill Country of Texas near all of the major Hill Country attractions as well as Austin and San Antonio. We stayed here for one month, so our rate reflects the monthly rate. Note that the park does not charge additionally for electric off the meter. The reservation process was very easy, and check-in was also efficient. At check-in they gave us the choice of three sites to choose from, had us select the one we wanted and then get back to them. We picked site 185, which is on a loop that is away by itself and quiet, which was nice during the busy Easter weekend. Roads through the park are very wide with no trees along the roads to cause any concerns for big rigs. Note: if you have a big rig, follow the directions on the park website and come into the park off River Road from FM2673 over the Guadalupe River Fourth Crossing to avoid a tight drive down River Road from the other direction. Our site was gravel and was pretty level, we did use a few blocks at the rear of the coach but leveled with no issues. Electrical, sewer and water hookups worked well and were conveniently located. The site was typical on each side, but it had a very spacious backyard. The backyard had a nice view of the Guadalupe River from a fence on the bluff, as well as a shelter with picnic tables. We could listen to the river in the mornings and evenings. The staff picked up garbage each morning from a can at the site. Verizon cell phone service was 1-2 bars, but the campground wi-fi was very strong and worked well. Satellite can be obstructed due to trees if you have a roof mounted dish depending on which site you select. The only caution I would have with the Park is that in the summer it looks like the campground can get a lot of use for campers enjoying the river and become very crowded. But, for the time of year we were here it wasn't packed and we enjoyed the campground and the area. We camped at Lazy L&L Campground in a Motorhome.

Old River Road RV Resort, Kerrville, Texas

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

We had a great monthly stay at this park on the Guadalupe River in the heart of the Texas Hill country. The reservation process was efficient and easy. Roads throughout the park were gravel, well-maintained, and very wide with no trees as obstacles. There are no problems navigating a big rig here. Our site was easy to pull into and had plenty of room to park the toad. The site was pretty level and all hookups worked well. We had Verizon cell phone service and an unobstructed view of the satellite for Dish. The park kept the grass cut, garbage picked up at your site, and restrooms clean. They had a nice indoor pool and activity center. You're within walking distance to the river if you want to sit along the banks and fish or just relax. The staff was always pleasant and helpful. The park was very quiet at night, allowing us to sleep with the windows open some nights. The park can be a bit hard to find: there was a lot of construction on Texas 27 and their sign on that road is small. I recomment you turn off of 27 onto Sutherland Lane to get to the park. That turn off 27 is not well lit at night, but the actual park entrance is easy to see once you get there on River Road. We would definately return here again when we decide to vist the Kerrville area. It looks like they are doing a major expansion, with the newer area having concrete pads and plenty of length for the biggest rigs. We camped at Old River Road RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Riverway RV Park, Llano, Texas

Date of Stay: March, 2019 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed here over a weekend while attending an event in Llano. Since we were busy at the event we didn't use any of the park amenities. It was easy access into the park and check in went well. Roads were gravel and easy to navigate through the park. There were no trees to worry about. We had a pull through site that was gravel. Hookups worked well. Water pressure, howerver, was pretty low. Verizon cell service was good. Sites were level, but close together. Our neighbor had a trailer in their yard that was right on top of our slide out. In all not a bad park, just a bit tight and in my view expensive for what you get at the nightly rate. We camped at Riverway RV Park in a Motorhome.

Maverick Ranch RV Park at Lajitas Resort, Lajitas, Texas

Date of Stay: March, 2019 - $24.00
Overall Rating:

We spent almost a month here while visiting Big Bend. The reservation process was quick, and the check-in process was very efficient. Roads through the park were more than wide enough for our 38' coach while pulling our Jeep. Sites were level, hookups were well placed, and they all worked very well. Sites were oriented so two units shared the same utility pole and water, which gave you a lot of room out your front door to enjoy the picnic table and fire ring. There were no trees to obstruct your satellite. Verizon cell phone service was spotty and the park wifi was spotty, but workable. This is a night sky park, so they ask all external lights be off by 9PM. The night sky out there was beyond description. They have a clubhouse with some live music, and a nice pool. You can also access all of the amenities at the Resort. The views of the terrain from our site and the RV park are just beautiful. Yes, there is dust, but it's the desert. We really hated to leave the area and will be back next year. We camped at Maverick Ranch RV Park at Lajitas Resort in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

The park is on the doorstep of the State Park, but about 30 miles from the National Park Headquarters at Panther Junction. There is a NP entrance station on the way to Panther Junction on TX 118. It's not a bad drive at all, enjoy the scenery. You can find gas in Study Butte, but we bought diesel in Alpine for the coach before taking Texas 118 south, which is the way I suggest going to reach Lajitas rather than using US 385 south through the NP. Be sure to bring food as there are limited choices in Terlingua. Skip the Lajitas General Store for buying anything (it's affiliated with the Resort and prices are way out of sight), instead use the Cottonwood Market in Study Butte. You'll pay more but they are not unreasonable.

Great places to eat in Terlingua at all ranges of prices. We didn't have a bad meal there. Chili Pepper cafe and The High Sierra were less expensive but very good, Starlight Theatre a bit pricier but also very good. Try the pizza at La Kiva. Be sure to take Texas 170 west through the State park to Presidio Stunning views, Ft. Leaton is an interesting site to see just outside Presidio. We crossed into Mexico at Boquillas, if you want to do that have a Passport or Enhanced Driver's License.

Quail Springs RV Park, Uvalde, Texas

Date of Stay: February, 2019 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed here overnight on our way to Big Bend. The park is full of snowbirds and full-timers, but it's well kept. The issue we had was that it is full of trees, with branches that encroach on the roads, which are tight anyway. We have a 38 foot coach and had to be very careful getting into and out of our site. Our site was a pull-through, but was so short we had to disconnect the toad just for the overnight stay. Also, there was a tree with branches just a few inches from the roof. In fact, the tree brushed part of the roof as we moved into the spot. Glad there was no wind. Not a bad park but will look at other options if back in the area for a stopover. We camped at Quail Springs RV Park in a Motorhome.

Very clean facility close to the beach, which is a short walk across the road. Roads were nice and wide, easy to navigate. Hookups were well placed and worked great.

Whispering Meadow RV Park, Westlake, Louisiana

Date of Stay: November, 2018 - $36.00
Overall Rating:

This is a nice RV park in the Lake Charles area. Almost all of the spaces have full time residents that work in the area, but the park is clean, quiet, well maintained and all of the RVs there are kept neat. The owner was friendly and helpful and everyone we met in the park was friendly as well. The park has easy access into and out of and through the park. We had a concrete pull through site that was easy to navigate into and was level. The site had a table and chairs provided to enjoy the patio outside. All hookups were in great shape. We got good Verizon cell reception and good satellite reception. The park was in a nice location to get into Lake Charles, the casinos, or to explore the Sabine National Wildlife Preserve. The only drawback was a fair amount of road noise in the mornings from the traffic heading to work on the road outside the park. Overall, though, we definitely enjoyed our stay and would be back to this park if we go back to Lake Charles. We camped at Whispering Meadow RV Park in a Motorhome.

Riverside Campground & Resort, Sevierville, Tennessee

Date of Stay: October, 2018 - $41.00
Overall Rating:

This is a very nice place to stay while exploring the Gatlinburg/Smoky Mountains NP area. The park was clean, the staff was friendly and professional, and sites were level. There are pull through sites, but we selected a back-in site that gave us a nice backyard on the river. The sites are a bit close, but that's to be expected in a "resort" area, and they weren't too close to be uncomfortable. The roads in the park are very wide and easy to maneuver for any size rig. They are gravel and are well maintained. We liked that this park is close to I40, so you don't have to drive through all of the high-traffic tourist areas to get there. And, you're not that far from Pigeon Forge and the National Park to enjoy those areas. It was nice to be in a more quiet area when running to the store or to get gas. Verizon cell phone service was good. We used the cable somewhat, it had limited channels. You should have good satellite service given the park layout. Hookups were in great shape and within easy reach of the Motorhome. We enjoyed our stay, the view of the river, and would definately return the next time we visit this area.

Mountain Glen RV Park & Campground, Pikeville, Tennessee

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $18.00
Overall Rating:

The rate reflects a month-long stay and includes charges for electric. We truly enjoyed our stay at this park in the mountains. Our reservation and check-in process was smooth and the owners are very friendly and helpful. They have a lot of information about local activities in the Park Office, as well as a camp store with necessities. Our site (15) and the surrounding sites were level, but some sites do have a steep pull up that may pose a problem for bigger rigs. We observed that the owners make every effort to put bigger rigs in the flattest sites to avoid issues. Navigating the gravel roads in the park was a bit tight, but manageable. Hookups were in great shape and easy to access. Satellite reception was great, few local TV channels were available. We spent most of our evenings enjoying the fire pit, the night sky (not much light pollution so you can really see the stars), and the cool evenings. This park has, by far and away, the best wi-fi we have experienced in a park. It's fast and reliable. Verizon cell phone service was spotty, but the owners have a phone outside of the office for use if needed. The park is in a remote and picturesque setting, but you're not far at all from the activities at Fall Creek Falls SP (2o minutes), Sparta (30 minutes), and Chattanooga ( 1 hour). The maintenance of the park is top notch. The grass is cut regularly and gravel for the roads and sites is kept groomed. The game room should keep kids busy all day with air hockey, pool, foosball, a large TV, and board games. They also have a ping-pong table and cornhole boards. All facilities are kept spotless. This is one of those places you can relax, enjoy the views, and still be close to a variety of attractions. Be sure to follow the directions on the website to get to the park. If not, you could end up coming up a very steep and windy mountail road with significant switchbacks. Great stay! We camped at Mountain Glen RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

Lake Livingston / Onalaska KOA, Onalaska, Texas

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $19.00
Overall Rating:

This is a very nice park with a great location to explore the Lake Livingston area. The reservation and check-in process was smooth, with an efficient and knowledgeable staff. Roads in the site are concrete and asphalt. It is big-rig friendly, but some of the turns in the "Tall Timbers" section are tight for bigger rigs. If you take it slow you will be OK. Also, some of the asphalt sections on the hills tend to get chewed up by the rigs but they get repaired quickly. Most sites are level with the exception of some of the sites at the bottom of the hill in the Tall Timbers section. We had to place blocks and take several trys to get the auto-level to work. There is ample space between sites. Sites have picnic tables and fire rings. Satellite service and Verizon cell phone service were both good. The park provides cable and that worked very well. Wi-fi can be spotty, but was better than most parks. The park has wonderful views of Lake Livingston, a clean, safe beach, a pool that is well-cared for, and an on site restaurant that is open some nights of the week and weekends. The park staff is very attentive to needs. Trash is picked up daily, the grass is cut, and rules are enforced. We had a relaxing time here and enjoyed the views and pool. We will definately return. We camped at Lake Livingston / Onalaska KOA in a Motorhome.

DiamondJacks Casino and Resort, Bossier City, Louisiana

Date of Stay: November, 2017 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed here for three nights to get a break off the road as we headed west for the winter. The park has easy access on and off of I20 and is located right next to the casino. The area is secure and quiet, except for some active train tracks. We were located in the middle of the park so I'm sure we were didn't notice the trains as much as those back up against the tracks. Security from the casino walked the park on foot. The sites are fairly good size with a parking apron for your toad. We had a pull through that was easy to get into. Not all pull throughs are long enough to stay connected for an overnight if you have a larger vehicle. Water and sewer worked fine. Some of the electrical towers looked beat-up, but ours worked well. We had to deploy our portable dish to get satellite, as there are trees on some of the spots that give some shade. Verizon cell signal was strong. Each site had a picnic table and room to put out your grill if you wanted. We were able to walk to the casino for dinner, and were within easy drive of several places to eat in Shreveport. We were also close to grocery stores. All in all, a nice and convenient place to stop for a few days and see Shreveport. It was clean, well-kept with decent sites. The only real drawback was the train noise and some upkeep needed on electrical boxes. We camped at DiamondJacks Casino and Resort in a Motorhome.

Willie's Last Resort, Indianola, Mississippi

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

If you are looking for a Campground and a camping experience, this is not the place for you. It's a concrete pad that used to be the floor of a building, where electrical, sewer and water hookups have been added. There isn't a playground for kids. And, when you call to reserve a spot, the person taking our reservation was very upfront about these facts, which I appreciated. The ownership was very friendly and welcoming. But if you're looking for a 1-2 night stopover with some things to see and do in the Delta, or if you are taking a tour of the Blues/history of the Delta and need a spot to put the RV, this is centrally located to many attractions.

Sites are level, hookups are new, and there are two very good restaurants in walking distance. The BB King Museum is within 5 minutes walking distance. You won't get many local TV channels, but there is nothing to block satellite reception. Wi-Fi is very spotty. We used our time here to visit Clarksdale, several museums, and learn about the history of the blues. Vicksburg is an easy drive. We also sampled Delta tamales and other great food in the area. It's not a spot to spend a weekend "camping," but it's a good place to stage to see the rest of the area. We camped at Willie's Last Resort in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

There is a laundromat just down the street if needed. Walmart is a short drive away. Be sure to eat at the Blue Biscuit (you can walk there). Surprisingly good food from Morgan Freeman's former chef. They have live music on Saturday nights.
