About Rollin Ollens

As of December 02,2017 we are now retired. We are now spending as much time as we can to see the country but not through glass. We will be taking our time moving from one destination to the next meeting as many people as possible and enjoying the sights to be seen.

Sunny Acres RV Park (55+ park), Las Cruces, New Mexico

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

Access was good. Even with the construction on the street. Signage was adequate. Check in was quick, easy and informative. Parameter roads are gravel and in good condition. Our site, 32 was a gravelled back in. It was wide for an urban park. It came with a table, 30/50 power, water, sewer, cable and Wifi. Wifi was only fair. It did slow down on occasion. The park nlso has in addition to washrooms, a coin laundry, pickle ball court, and a fenced dog run. There are a number of permanents but we did not notice any sites that were trashy. This is an urban park so expect the normal sirens etc. The north end of the park appears to back onto a commercial lot. We noted some industrial noise while walking our dog but not much at our site. There are restaurants and groceries available within easy walking distance. All services are available in Las Cruces. We received a "construction discount" that was a little better than the GS that we expected. We paid $30.00 per night including tax and feel we received fair value for our dollar. We would return. We camped at Sunny Acres RV Park (55+ park) in a Motorhome.

Desert Willow RV Park, Van Horn, Texas

Date of Stay: January, 2019 - $23.00
Overall Rating:

Access was good. Easy on off of I-10. Signage was adequate. Check in was quick, efficient and informative. Our site 7, was a hard packed gravel pull through. Services were to the left rear and all worked well. We did not have a table but 30/50 power, water and cable plus Wifi that worked quite well. Our rig is short so had we wanted to keep our towed connected we could have. A longer rig would have required a disconnect. The park is only an over-nighter. There is not much to keep a person in Van Horn. There are no restaurants or serviced within easy walking distance. We paid $23.50 per night including a GS discount and feel we received fair value for our dollar. We would return if in the area. We camped at Desert Willow RV Park in a Motorhome.

Caverns of Sonora RV Park, Sonora, Texas

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

First off. This is NOT an RV Park. The spaces allowed for camping are secondary. The only reason you want to be here for is to tour the Cavern. Our high rating is a because the park delivered just what was advertised. They give you a place to park your rig close to the caverns. Access to the park is good. Pavement all the way although the road is somewhat narrow. Signage was adequate. Check in was quick, informative and efficient. We were first in that day so we had the best choice of spots. That being said, non were spectacular. We have opposing slides. We were lucky and were able able to use both. Power and water are the only amenities and they worked well. The site was hard packed gravel and was very level. We had a little shade. The pull thru section of the park fills every night. I did hear some guests grumble a bit about the size of the sites but those folks were not here for the cave experience. Earlier posts mentioned low hanging branches. We did not see any. If you are not here to do the cave, this park will probably be a disappointment. We paid $25.00 including tax and feel we received good value for our dollar. Had we not been here for the cave we would have been not very happy. We camped at Caverns of Sonora RV Park in a Motorhome.

Palmetto State Park, Gonzales, Texas

Date of Stay: January, 2019 - $18.00
Overall Rating:

Access to the park is easy and well marked. Check in was quick and informative. We stayed in the San Marcos River Loop. It is quieter with no playground or lake access near by. Parameter roads are paved and in good condition. Sites are paved and level. Our site, 3, came with power, water, concrete patio (but not attached to the pad), table, fire pit and a grill. All services worked as expected. Great hiking trails and if birding is your interest there are lots around here. We enjoyed our stay here and would return if in the area. There are no restaurants or services withing walking distance. The closest groceries are in Luling about 10 miles down the road. We paid $18.00 per night and feel we received excellent value for our dollar. We camped at Palmetto State Park in a Motorhome.

Galveston Island State Park, Galveston, Texas

Date of Stay: January, 2019 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

Access to the park and signage are good. There is pavement all the way but there are a few potholes that need to be attended to. Check in was not as good as it could have been. I requested 6 nights and was told that I could only have 1. Then the clerk said no, I can give you 4 and if you come back early tomorrow morning we may get you the last 2. I go back the next AM and a different clerk said it would have been no problem at the beginning to get all 6. Neither side of the park was ever full while we were there. We stayed on the Bay side as we wanted the view. We visited the Ocean side to walk the beach and are glad we did not stay there. We drove the 2 minutes to the beach instead. Our site, 59, was a paved back in (but we nosed in). It came with 30/50 power, water and a tired table. Fire pits were available in the center of the park along with shelters. There are no washrooms in the RV section. Dump station available near exit. Tenting next door had them. We used this park as a base to visit Galveston. There are no restaurants or services within walking distance. Galveston, a few miles down the road had all services. We paid $20.00 night and feel we received fair value for our dollar. We would return if in the area. We camped at Galveston Island State Park in a Motorhome.

Goose Island State Park, Rockport, Texas

Date of Stay: January, 2019 - $18.00
Overall Rating:

Access to the park is good. Pavement all the way. Signage is good. Check in was easy and informative. Be aware, if you have a Big Rig you must be careful driving in the park. It has many Live Oak Trees with some low hanging branches. We stopped a fellow campers with a 40 foot coach from taking out their AC unit. The park is Big Rig manageable but you need to keep your eyes open. Our site, 125, came with a raised patio, table, fire pit, power, water and extra parking for the towed. The park is quiet with trails and bird watching areas. The walk to the water is easy. We would have camped on the beach if it would have been possible. That section is now just a day use area. Too Bad. Corpus Christi is not too far away and Rockport is just a few minutes across the bridge. Their are no restaurants or services within walking distance. There is a Pub a short drive down the road. All services are available in Rockport. We enjoyed our stay at Goose Island and would be back if in the area again. We paid $18.00 night and feel we received good value for our dollar. We camped at Goose Island State Park in a Motorhome.

Isla Blanca Park, South Padre Island, Texas

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

Access to the park is good. Signage is adequate. Check in was informative but very drawn out. A two page form had to be filled out. Official pictured ID was required. Our check in clerk was very pleasant but the red tape was not. The park is divided into different sections depending of the amenities your request and what is available. We chose full hook ups but no cable. Our designated site B21 was outside of the main park over by the marina, The section was small, the sites well laid out and well spaced. The parameter road was paved but in very rough condition. B21 is an end unit with an extra wide patio. We parked on the patio as it was rainy and we didn't want our landing gear buried in mud, There was no table or fire pit. The patio, power, water and sewer were it. All of our amenities worked as they should. We found the park to be quiet and pleasant. There is Sea Food restaurant a few steps away that also sell fresh fish and ice. We did not test the restaurant but we did buy some huge very fresh shrimp that were awesome! We paid $45.00 night and feel we received good value for our dollar. We would return We camped at Isla Blanca Park in a Motorhome.

The beach was wonderful. We thought the Sea Turtle Recovery Center was good. A visit to the Light House was okay. Go for a drive to Beach Access Road 5 to go for a Drive along the beach. $10.00 for a day pass or if you have a true 4X4 go to access road 6 to get on for free. It would help if yo have a little knowledge on how to drive on loose sand as well. You can drive north on the beach for about 30 miles.

Andy Bowie County Park, South Padre Island, Texas

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

Access to the park was fair. It is a little tight. Signage was good. Perimeter roads are paved. This park is basically just a parking lot with services to the extreme rear. There is very little room between units. There are no trees, it is wide open. There is a boardwalk that takes you to the beach. We were really not very impressed with this park. There are two other options available. One being the "Dry" camping area at $20.00 night. It's a larger parking lot with no services but you can park where ever you want. You do get a little more space. The third option is the best IMO. You can purchase a thirty day pass for $25.00 that allows you to park right on the beach a few miles up the road at Edwin King Atwood park. You can only buy the pass at Andy Bowie though. We spent one night at Andy Bowie and then moved to the beach for just over two weeks. The $25.00 pass gives you access to the facilities at Andy Bowie as well as access to the facilities at Isla Blanca RV Park (also owned and operated by the county). You can fill fresh water and dump at no charge. For us, to have the space, freedom and to park right on the beach, was the best. The beach access road is had packed sand. Our friends had no problems getting their 40 footer parked on solid sand. See the pics added. The beach area is patrolled by security many times a day. Pet rules still apply although many day users let their dogs run free. We would definitely return to the Beach Section. We paid $25.00 to use the park for just over two weeks and feel we received a bargain. We camped at Andy Bowie County Park in a Motorhome.

Palmdale RV Resort, Los Fresnos, Texas

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

Access is good. Signage could be better. Parameter roads are excellent. They are paved, wide and in good condition. Check in was quick and very informative. Our site, 42, was a deluxe pull through. It came with power, water and sewer. It was hard packed gravel with a concrete patio but no cable. It was wide, long and level. The only short coming was that it was designed for a 40 - 45 foot coach. We are just a little guy at 28. The power and water are placed way far back. We had to park so that we were just barely able to step out onto the patio without using our extension power cable. We also had to use all three of our sewer hoses to reach as the receptacle is way forward. Seriously, just a very minor issues. The parks amenities and activities seem adequate. We did not use the pool, rec items or join any groups but we were graciously welcomed by the long-termers. The grounds are very well maintained. The rules are not many but they appear to be enforced. Lots of folks walking their dogs but we did not find any doggie do left behind. We did a lot of checking around. By far this is the nicest park in the area. We contemplated staying for a month or two and would have if we did not have a future commitment. We tested their Wifi and found it could be spotty at times but considering the size of the park, it would work well for the basics. There are no restaurants or services within walking distance. All services are available within a short drive. We paid $43.00 night and feel that we received very good value for our dollar. We would return in a heart beat. We camped at Palmdale RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Lake Corpus Christi State Park, Mathis, Texas

Date of Stay: December, 2018 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

Access to the park is good. Big rig friendly. Pavement all the way. Parameter roads are paved. Signage was good. Check in was quick, informative and the staff were very friendly. Our site, Opossum loop site 10, was a pull through, partial hook up, with a concrete pad. It came with power, water, a covered table and a fire pit. Sadly, had we parked so that our levelers were all on the concrete we would have stepped out into a mud pit. It was raining upon our arrival. We moved forward so we would step out onto grass which made for a very big first step. Our front wheels were very much in the air. No attempt has been made to mitigate erosion. Soil on the side of the pad has washed onto the concrete table pad. We looked at other sites thinking of moving. Most were in the same condition. The park setting is beautiful but some drainage work and the addition of some gravel would go a long way to making this a great park. It is clean and quiet. There are no restaurants or services within walking distance. Groceries etc are about 15 minutes away in Mathis. We paid $20.00 plus a $10.00 park entrance fee per day and feel we received good value for our dollar. Even with the sad shape of the site, we would return. We camped at Lake Corpus Christi State Park in a Motorhome.

Summit Vacation Resort, New Braunfels, Texas

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

Access to the park was good. Signage was good. When stopping to check in I was a little confused at first by a sign tells you to pull your rig around towards the exit! Check in was quick and informative. Now it makes sense why you are pointed to the exit. The main RV Park is across the street and down the road a short distance. Perimeter roads are paved and easy to manage. Our assigned site was 34. A freshly graveled pull through. It came with a table, power, water, sewer and a rock ring for a fire pit. We were able to get level only with the front wheels 8 - 10 inches off the ground. That makes for a huge first step. Back to the office for a more level site. We chose 5. It is a back in with the same features. Much better. Limited cell service and we could not get our Jet Pack to connect. The parks Wifi worked very well. There is no cable TV. We found a very few OTA. The sites are spaced well. Lots of trash cans and doggy doo bags available. We found the park, clean, quiet and well maintained. We checked the bathrooms and they were clean and not dated. We used Summit as a base to tour the area. Good access to Gruene, San Antonio and Austin. There are no restaurants or services within walking distance. We paid $29.85 per night including tax (weekly rate) and feel we received good value for our dollar. We would return. We camped at Summit Vacation Resort in a Motorhome.

Hill Country RV Park, Fredericksburg, Texas

Date of Stay: November, 2018 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

We chose this park because of it's proximity and that the spaces were going to be wider than others in the area. We knew it was an older park and that the bathrooms were not maintained. No big deal to us as we use our own facilities. We just needed a quiet base for our stay in the area. We were pretty disappointed. Signage is not good. Had we not been following our GPS we probably would have passed by. The office is located at the end of a strip mall. Not what one would expect. Access to the park is okay. The road in is two way but pretty narrow. Stopping your rig to check in puts a squeeze on traffic. Check in was not so good. It was very quick but not pleasant or informative. I was obviously an inconvenience to the young lady behind the counter. She took our money and drew a quick line on the map (with rules and park info) and said stop by if you plan to stay longer as she was walking away. She didn't even verbally tell us our site number. Our site, 13, (my wife's lucky number), was a pull through long enough for the Coach and Jeep, wide enough for our opposing slides with power, water, sewer and cable TV. There was no table but there was a small patio that was left behind by the previous guest (that had been a long termer). We were lucky to have been given this spot as the previous renter had obviously made some upgrades. Our base was gravel and some landscaping. Others are just dirt. While walking our pooch (dog's are tolerated but not encouraged.) we noticed that renters seem to be responsible for maintenance. There is no pride of ownership in this park. There are bits of grass between some sites and a patch on the side of the washroom building (that your dog is not allowed to be near! And there is no where else for it to do it's business!). This place is a sad excuse for an RV Park. We paid $35.00 per night and will never be back. We camped at Hill Country RV Park in a Motorhome.

By The River RV Park & Campground, Kerrville, Texas

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

Access to the park is good. Paved all the way. Signage is good. Check in was reasonably quick and very informative. This is a gated park. An access code was provided at check in. Parameter roads are concrete, asphalt and if you cross the bridge to the island tenting area, hard packed gravel. Our site, 27, was a back in overlooking the Guadalupe River. It came with a table, power (30), water, sewer, cable, Wifi that was iffy at times and a small patio. Spacing is quite close but we plenty of room for our opposing slides and awning. There are wider spaced areas available. I think they are called the Deluxe Riverside. Our site worked well for us though. If you are not self contained getting to the bathrooms could be a challenge. They are located at the office quite a way up a hill. We did look in on them and they were clean and well appointed. I was amazed to learn that this park was under two feet of water just over a month ago. There is still some evidence of the major flooding that took place in this area but the cleanup has been looked after very quickly. Some river back restoration and remediation work is still taking place but they are 95% done. We happened to be here during Thanksgiving and the park hosted a Pot Luck dinner. We met some fine people staying here and the food was wonderful. We used this park as a base to tour the area. We did not see a playground but the kids seemed to have a good time playing by the river and using the wide open spaces on the island. There are no restaurants or services within easy walking distance but all services are available just a short drive away. This park delivered everything as promised. We paid a weekly rate of $30.00 night and feel we received good value for our dollar. We would return in a heart beat. We camped at By The River RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

We arrived here after a long day traveling. This was the closest RV Park that our GPS showed. We called to make sure they could accommodate us. Just a FYI, we don't usually stay at KOAs as they cater to families and we, being retired, would rather stay at quiet, non kid friendly parks. We were met at the entrance and guided to our site, 37, which was a graveled pull through. It came with a very weathered table, power, water, cable but no sewer. It was long enough that we would not have to disconnect if we didn't want to and wide enough for our opposing slides. The host just told us to get set up and take a breath. When we were ready to check in just come over to the office and compete the transaction. Huge points for reading our mood. We were just looking for a quiet place to hang our hats and this place fit the bill in every way. We did check out the washrooms and showers. They were clean and up to date. There is a well stocked store on site and as well they have gasoline, diesel and propane for sale. A number of permanents live here but all sites were neat and tidy. There are no restaurants within walking distance but all services are available a short drive away. We do not have a KOA Value card did not receive any discounts. We paid $40.00 per night and feel that we received good value for our dollar. We would return if in the area. We camped at Kerrville KOA in a Motorhome.

Rio Grande Village Campground (NPS Campground), Big Bend National Park, Texas

Date of Stay: November, 2018 - $14.00
Overall Rating:

Access to the park was good. Signage was great. Check in was quick and easy. We checked in at the visitor center where we could use a credit card. Perimeter roads were paved and in good condition. Our site, 54, was a paved "back in". It came with a table and a food storage bin (that we used to store our beer cooler in). Because we have opposing slides we placed the left side wheels off of the pavement thus we were not level. Our auto-leveling jacks compensated easily. This is a very quiet park. At night, it was so dark you could almost touch the stars. We checked the bath houses and found they were clean. The park was well maintained. Wifi is available at the store but it was very poor. We didn't bother after the second attempt to log on. We had no Verizon cell service and out Verizon Mifi could not get a signal either. Showers and laundry are also available at the store. There are no restaurants within walking distance but if you cross the Rio Grande and make your way to Boquillas Del Carman, a little Mexican Village, we had a great lunch. We paid $14.00 per night and feel that we got good value for our dollar. We would return if in the area. We camped at Rio Grande Village Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Make sure you help out the residents of Boquillas Del Carman. Spend the $5.00 to cross the Rio Grande and another $5.00 to ride a donkey to the village. Lunch was great and the Beer was cold. We didn't buy any trinkets because we have no place for them but we gave a young lad $5.00 anyway. It was a worthwhile experience for the $60.00 we spent. The walk to the mouth of Boquillas Canyon was nice as was the soak in the natural Hot Springs.
