Kofa Ko-Op - Escapees Park (members only), Yuma, Arizona

Date of Stay: January, 2010 - $18.00
Overall Rating:

We paid $5 for dry camping for one night before we were moved into a full hookup site. We got settled in just before a huge wind and rain storm hit the area. We were sure glad we had come in from dry camping in the Anza Borrego Desert before that terrible storm hit. We were able to have our mail sent right to the park and use their laundromat as well. Being Escapees has always been a great thing for us. We camped at Kofa Ko-Op - Escapees Park (members only) in a Motorhome.

Fantasy Springs Resort and Casino, Indio, California

Date of Stay: November, 2009
Overall Rating:

We camped here for two nights. The parking area is a gravel area across the street from the casino. This is just a parking area which has signs "No Overnight Camping" but when you call security at the number listed they say to camp as long as you wish. They do want you to come to the casino and try your luck. There are fine restaurants there. The experience here is totally free dry camping with others camped nearby. There is no dumpster for trash so just take it to your next stop. Since the parking is close to the Interstate, it can be noisy. We would stay here again. We camped at Fantasy Springs Resort and Casino in a Motorhome.

Dead Horse Ranch State Park, Cottonwood, Arizona

Date of Stay: October, 2009 - $19.00
Overall Rating:

This is certainly one of the finest state parks we have ever stayed at. We had no trouble getting our 38' motorhome into our back-in space. There is a 40' rig parked right next to us. 45' rigs could be tight though. The 50 AMP electricity is spot on and water pressure is good. The water does taste pretty bad even after being filtered twice. What a view we have here! We are close to all of the stores in Cottonwood and to Sedona, Jerome and the beautiful Oak Creek Canyon. There is fishing, hiking, geocaching, horse back riding and many other activities in the area. We definitely will stay here again and again!! We camped at Dead Horse Ranch State Park in a Motorhome.

Holbrook / Petrified Forest KOA, Holbrook, Arizona

Date of Stay: October, 2009 - $32.00
Overall Rating:

Typical KOA park with good electric and water hookups. Since we were only staying one night, we didn't get a sewer hookup site. We got the AARP discount of 10% which paid the taxes. This place would be good again for a one night stay. We camped at Holbrook / Petrified Forest KOA in a Motorhome.

Oasis RV Resort, Amarillo, Texas

Date of Stay: October, 2009 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed 3 nights so we paid $20 for two nights and got the third night free. Heck of a deal. Free laundry which we availed ourselves of. We ate dinner in the clubhouse which was $10 for some pretty fine BBQ. The full hookups were great except for a trailer or 5er: your pickup truck would block the roadway while you are disconnecting. The hookups are a bit too far forward. This is a newish park built in 2007 and is the best around easily. We would stay here again. We camped at Oasis RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Lucky Star Casino and RV Park, Concho, Oklahoma

Date of Stay: October, 2009 - $1.00
Overall Rating:

The camping is free here like it is in many other casinos along I-40 so I will compare it to some of the others. The hookups were very good and the 50 AMP electricity was spot on. The parking spot compared to others could stand to be upgraded from its gravel and rotting railroad ties to pavement. I say this because if you spend money in the casino like most do, the camping may not be free at all. We would stay here again. We camped at Lucky Star Casino and RV Park in a Motorhome.

Peculiar Park Place RV Park, Peculiar, Missouri

Date of Stay: September, 2009 - $27.00
Overall Rating:

We used our Good Sams discount here. The water is very high pressure here so you will want to step it down some. The 50 AMP electric is spot on. The crushed limestone drives and parking spaces were rather dusty since it was dry here; it probably could get a bit sloppy in wet weather. The park overlooks a rather busy US 71 highway so the highway noise is is somewhat invasive when your rig is open. We spent one night here and would stay here again for only one night. We camped at Peculiar Park Place RV Park in a Motorhome.

Ponca State Park, Ponca, Nebraska

Date of Stay: August, 2009 - $17.00
Overall Rating:

You have to pay an entry of $4 per vehicle per night to get into the park then $17 per night for the camping. We had to pay $8 to get both vehicles into the park then one night's camping. We only stayed one night but we definitely would come back again because there is a whole lot to do there. The park has beautiful trees and paved pads for most rigs. You must fill your water tank at one of the faucets nearby. They were adding more water faucets to the park and plan to have a faucet for each two sites I believe. There is a dump station that looked OK. We got a peek of the DirecTV sattellite through the trees so everyone was happy. Has a wonderful interpretive center that we didn't have time to get to. We camped at Ponca State Park in a Motorhome.

Lake Mitchell Campground, Mitchell, South Dakota

Date of Stay: August, 2009 - $15.00
Overall Rating:

Campground is clean and the electricity and water are good. The water pressure is high so you may want to use your pressure reducer. The spaces can be a bit close together for a noncommercial park. There was adequate room however. Lots of trees and a nice playground for our grandkids. Plenty of room for our toad in front of the coach. The park hosts were friendly. The lake is beautiful. We would stay here again in the future. We camped at Lake Mitchell Campground in a Motorhome.

Oakwood RV Park, Clear Lake, Iowa

Date of Stay: August, 2009 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

The park hosts were the absolute best we have seen in Iowa. The pull through we had would have been a little close if the park was totally filled because of side by side parking. The park wasn't full so there was a whole lot of room between rigs. The water, electricity and Wi-Fi were very good. Make sure you reserve a spot if you are going to be there for a holiday weekend. We will stay there often in the future because our daughter and husband have a lake condo close by. We camped at Oakwood RV Park in a Motorhome.

Griff's Valley View RV Park & Campground, Altoona, Iowa

Date of Stay: July, 2009 - $13.00
Overall Rating:

For sure the finest RV park we have stayed at in Iowa. We are full-time RVers and many of the people staying here are full-timers. The daily rent shown is based on the per month rate. The place is spotless clean and there are really no junky rigs parked here. The pad we had was a concrete paved pull-through. The full hookup utilities were very new and really good; the electric was spot on. The laundry is both clean and very functional. They have a huge clubhouse toward the back of the park with pool table and other games, large screen TV, etc. The pond is real nice and well cared for. We definitely will stay here again. We camped at Griff's Valley View RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

Springhill COE, Barling, Arkansas

Date of Stay: March, 2009 - $8.00
Overall Rating:

We have the "geezer" pass which got us our camping for half price. We have camped in the A Loop which has only 30 AMP service and water for the past three years. Our preference is to camp in the A Loop. The pads are asphalt paved with a paved area for your towed auto or truck. Beautiful park close to the lock and dam on the Arkansas. Real close to Ft. Smith with great shopping. We love to geocache at the old Ft. Chaffee. We will definitely come here again. We camped at Springhill COE in a Motorhome.

K & K RV Park, Shamrock, Texas

Date of Stay: March, 2009 - $14.00
Overall Rating:

A good place to stay for one night. The electricity was borderline "hot". The other connections were adequate. You pay here on the honor system. If you want cable TV it is an extra dollar. We stopped by the "park" west of town. That place was real dismal and they wanted $28 for a 50 AMP site with 10% off for Good Sam. There was no one there so we hot footed it to K & K in town. We would stay here again for only one night. We camped at K & K RV Park in a Motorhome.

Firelake Grand Casino RV Park, Shawnee, Oklahoma

Date of Stay: March, 2009 - $1.00
Overall Rating:

We were pleasantly surprised with the high quality of this park, which is totally free when you get a Player's Club card and spend at least $10 in the casino. The water and 50 AMP electricity were excellent for the three nights we stayed here. There is a dump station closeby that can be accessed as you leave. We had no problem spending the $10 at the casino. We camped at Firelake Grand Casino RV Park in a Motorhome.

Historic Route 66 RV Park (formerly Kiva RV Park), Tucumcari, New Mexico

Date of Stay: March, 2009 - $14.00
Overall Rating:

The owner was really nice and showed us to our spot. He even gave us free WiFi for the two nights we were there. The place is real junky and has almost entirely trailers and mobile homes of people who seem to be living there full time. During the two nights we were there no other RVs came in to camp there. All of the hookups were adequate. We did not use the cable TV since our dish served us well enough. We definitely would not stay here again. The whole place was rather dismal. We camped at Historic Route 66 RV Park (formerly Kiva RV Park) in a Motorhome.
