Lubbock KOA, Lubbock, Texas

Date of Stay: October, 2018 - $39.00
Overall Rating:

In my experience KOAs are never great nor ever awful; a range maybe of 6.5 to 8. The Lubbock KOA is on the low end of that scale, primarily because the sites are short. Also, no 50 amp and the roads and sites are gravel, close together and tight. But if you happen to be on your way to Muleshoe, the location can't be beat! The restrooms and showers were tired, but clean. It's fine for an overnight. Anything longer and you'll probably want to shop around. We camped at Lubbock KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Taos Monte Bello RV Park, El Prado, New Mexico

Date of Stay: October, 2018 - $43.00
Overall Rating:

Monte Bello is intimate (about 2 dozen sites) but the sites are roomy and the views are grand in a great location on the outskirts of Taos. The utility setup in our site was a bit awkward, requiring some long extensions that, perhaps, not everyone carries with them. The men's and women's bathrooms are both one-holers so you could end up waiting a bit. There is a very nice common area for grilling and there is a locked security gate the guests can access with a key code. Wi-Fi was fair. Of course, this is a high desert so there are no trees and both the roads and the sites are hard packed gravel. This is definitely a nice place in a great location with friendly, attentive hands-on owners. We camped at Taos Monte Bello RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

We ate La Cueva and it was excellent. Get the guacamole and chips for an appetizer, it's worth it.

Snowy Peaks RV Park, Buena Vista, Colorado

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $43.00
Overall Rating:

If you are staying here for the first time, and your stay is short, you may think that Snowy Peaks is overrated and overpriced; that you can find something better in the area. If you stay longer you might change your mind. The place grows on you. It's not fancy, but it's functional and the location is fabulous. Everything is gravel and it can, at times, get a little dusty. The sites are level, but they're not roomy. When the park is full, which it usually is between Memorial Day and Labor Day, your neighbors will be close at hand and you'll likely share your yard/picnic/fire ring area with them. The four private bathroom/showers are a little tight but clean and functional. The laundry is serviceable but a bit cramped. The WiFi is spotty and slow when the park is full but improves significantly with fewer guests. Snowy peaks is not cheap. Stay a month and you'll pay north of $40 per night, plus electric. Yet many people come back year after year and stay the entire summer. A primary reason is the location; about a mile north of lovely, downtown Buena Vista on U.S. 24; halfway between Salida and Leadville. If you want full hookups and city conveniences in the Arkansas Valley you will be hard-pressed to find something better than this solid, shady, well-maintained park. Snowy Peaks is definitely worth a try. We camped at Snowy Peaks RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

James M. Robb-Colorado River State Park (Fruita Section), Fruita, Colorado

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

This is a nice, quiet state park conveniently located near I-70 and a solid place to overnight or spend a few days to see the sights in the area. Most of the RV sites are well-designed asphalt/concrete pull-throughs with asphalt roads and plenty of room between the sites. The restrooms are new and clean and there is a laundry room and a small visitor center. The sites have 30-amp electric and most do not have sewer. However, there is a well-located and well-designed dump station in the park. Note that, in addition to the camping fee, there is an additional $7 per day, per vehicle entry fee for non-Colorado residents. Showers cost $1. There is a small lake, a playground and access to the Colorado River. We camped at James M. Robb-Colorado River State Park (Fruita Section) in a Travel Trailer.

Two great brew pubs in lovely, historic downtown Fruita. Downtown can be accessed from the park on a concrete hike/bike path; 2 miles one way. Get info on the area at the Colorado Welcome Center, which is walking distance from the park.

Butch Cassidy RV Park and Campground, Salina, Utah

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $38.00
Overall Rating:

The Sundance Kid was known to be a bit pickier about his accommodations than Butch Cassidy; so that may explain why the two did not partner up on the name of this RV park. It doesn't meet the Kid's standards. Traveling east or west on I-70 this is a great location to overnight. Otherwise, the park is barely average. The place could use a good sprucing up. At least half of the slots are taken by long termers and those for the short termers are cramped pull-throughs with the rigs essentially sharing one space by facing in opposite directions. It's tight, but manageable and we were able to stay hitched pulling a 30-foot travel trailer with only minor leveling required while sharing the site with a Class A that was still hitched to its TOAD. Both the roads and the sites are gravel, which is thinning in spots. The WiFi works OK but it reaches only a few of the sites closest to the office. So, if you want to use the WiFi, you'll probably have to walk several hundred yards to the office where the unlocked, open 24/7, bathrooms are also located. Hopefully the Sundance Kid will open an RV park in Salina before we come through again. We camped at Butch Cassidy RV Park and Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Ely KOA, Ely, Nevada

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $38.00
Overall Rating:

This is a quiet, above-average KOA. We stayed overnight while driving through on U.S. 6/50. The park is conveniently located next to the highway on the eastern edge of town, but far enough away that there is not a lot of highway noise. The pull-through sites are pretty roomy width-wise, and long enough to keep a 30-foot travel trailer hitched to the tow vehicle. There is some slope to most of the sites that will likely require some leveling work. Everything is gravel, no pavement. On my one visit to the bathroom facilities (which are part of the office complex at one end of the park, which may require a long walk for those camped at the opposite end) they were decent but in need of cleaning. There are quite a few long-term residents at this park, probably more than 50 percent on most nights. We had a pretty good pizza and salad delivered to the rig. We camped at Ely KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Highlands RV Park, Bishop, California

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $42.00
Overall Rating:

This is a very solid, clean, well-run park with paved roads; level, paved sites; concrete patios with picnic tables; a nice laundry facility; clean bathrooms; and strong WiFi (the best we've ever had at an RV park). The biggest knock on Highlands RV is its compactness. The sites are very close to one another; so much so that extended awnings will nearly touch the neighbor's unit and the margin for error on your slide outs could be measured in inches. The park is also close to U.S. 395 and there is some highway noise. But the park is also conveniently located to Bishop, which is a wonderful town with great stores, restaurants and services; and the opportunities for outdoor activities within a 30-mile drive seem limitless. Bottom line: Highlands is a very nice - but very tight - little park in a great location and we would definitely stay here again. We camped at Highlands RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Boulder Creek RV Resort, Lone Pine, California

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

This is a solid, well-above-average RV park and the hard reality is that - if you're looking for a full-hookup site anywhere in the Owens Valley (and most definitely in the Lone Pine area of the valley) - there are not many (probably not any) better options. The park is divided into a longer-term/overflow area where the sites are a bit roomier and relatively flat, but less aesthetically pleasing; and a shorter-term area that is well-shaded with large pine trees. Like many parks in the desert southwest all of the drives are paved with asphalt while the sites themselves are hard-packed gravel. There is some slope and many of the sites, especially in the shorter-term area, will require some leveling and perhaps some squeezing to fit the bigger rigs + tow vehicles. However, overall the park is quite pleasant and the facilities are clean and well-maintained. The park is adjacent to U.S. 395 and there is some traffic noise but it is exceptionally well-screened by some of those aforementioned pine trees and that seems to do a pretty good job of blocking the highway noise (along with a clear view of the mountains to the west). The park office is in the back of what is, essentially, a well-stocked convenience store that sells a lot of basics, including a good selection of wine, beer and RV supplies. One classy touch is the seven-days-per-week provision of complimentary coffee and muffins in the roomy, pleasant community room adjacent to the store/pool/bathrooms/laundry complex. The WiFi is decent. When I first arrived users had to re-log on every 15 minutes, which was a little annoying but not unworkable because it did not require re-entering the password each time. One click got you re-connected after the initial log on. Then, mysteriously, about halfway through my stay the 15-minute log on requirement disappeared. Bottom line, by RV park standards, the WiFi is decent; sometimes slow, sometimes spotty but usually functional. We camped at Boulder Creek RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Blake Ranch RV Park & Horse Motel, Kingman, Arizona

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

This is a good overnight stop for I-40 travelers, close but not uncomfortably close to exit 66 and a truck stop with accessible Shell gasoline pumps and a well-provisioned convenience store. The sites are roomy and clean, but everything is gravel and some leveling will likely be required. We camped at Blake Ranch RV Park & Horse Motel in a Travel Trailer.

Route 66 RV Resort, Albuquerque, New Mexico

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $50.00
Overall Rating:

This place is brand new and a fabulous overnight stop on I-40; especially if you like smoky casinos. If you are not a casino fan don't let that dissuade you from stopping here. The RV park is separated from the casino by a large parking lot and a security gate; so it's easy to partake of the casino and it's restaurants/bars but it is also amazingly easy to ignore the casino and the truck stop filled with overnighting 18-wheelers. It sounds weird, but it works. The sites are all huge, level concrete pads. The restrooms/showers are pristine and the clubhouse is (by RV park standards) plush. No full timers; the max stay is 14 days. I would definitely stop here again and might consider it as a base for a longer stay in the Albuquerque area. It's an easy 15-20 minute drive into town. We camped at Route 66 RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

They make it sound like you will get discounts on food and drink in the casino but there are strings attached and its really just a ploy to get you gambling. There's a Dairy Queen at the truck stop.

Alamo Fiesta RV Resort, Boerne, Texas

Date of Stay: April, 2018 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

The billboard proclaiming Alamo Fiesta RV Resort as "Boerne's Elite RV Resort" is tattered and faded; sort of like Fiesta RV. Perhaps their claim is an aspirational statement? Or, perhaps, Fiesta RV is Boerne's "Only RV Resort"? Either way it's not a "resort" and it's certainly not elite. Fiesta is a big, sprawling, reasonably-well-maintained RV park with plenty of full-time residents. On the plus side our site had level concrete pads, adequate size and utility set up and the park has a convenient compressed air station with a brand new hose on a reel. They've got propane for sale and the staff is friendly. On the downside it is modestly overpriced at $45 and can be very tricky to get into and out of; even though it is close to I-10. Also, the bathrooms are supposedly undergoing renovation but that is not an excuse for them being unkempt and devoid of toilet paper at a particularly vulnerable time. Bottom line, if you don't care about the location and have no interest in checking out the sights in Boerne/San Antonio/Fredericksburg/Kerrville, et al then you probably want to shop for something better. But if you do want to be close to some or all of those places during your stay this may be your place. We camped at Alamo Fiesta RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.
