Shreveport / Bossier City KOA, Shreveport, Louisiana

Date of Stay: April, 2014 - $38.00
Overall Rating:

This is a beautiful park; too bad we came in late and only stayed one evening. This park has everything you would expect a ten rated park to have. Unfortunately, we didn't stay long enough to enjoy it fully. We got a great Verizon signal and our DirecTV access was great. The park cable was more than adequate as well. All hookups were as they should be. This park is a beautifully clean and scenic park. The parking surface was concrete in our spot. You will want to return to this park again and again. We camped at Shreveport / Bossier City KOA in a Motorhome.

Betty's RV Park, Abbeville, Louisiana

Date of Stay: April, 2014 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

This is a pretty common RV park as RV parks go. The parking surface is large gravel and the space is tight when the park is full. If you need showers or restrooms, don't come here. The hookups are adequate albeit antiquated. The rating I give the park is not for the physical park but for Betty Bernard herself who makes the park a ten rating park. If you want to immerse yourself in the Cajun culture, Betty will make it happen. If you want to make many close friends, Betty provides the opportunity for that to happen with her 4:30PM happy hour which often continues into the evening with food and music. Betty's is an absolute happening. This is not a place for unfriendly people to come; you may wish to go to another RV park. I am a Cajun myself and I appreciate what Betty does to shine her wonderful light on our Cajun culture. We definitely would come back here when in the area. We camped at Betty's RV Park in a Motorhome.

Rainbow Plantation - Escapees Rainbow Park , Summerdale, Alabama

Date of Stay: March, 2014 - $17.00
Overall Rating:

One of the best Escapees Rainbow Parks in the system. The utility hookups are adequate. WiFi through Tengo Internet is not free. No mail can be delivered to the park; you must use general delivery at a local post office. Packages must be delivered to your rig in your space; they don't go to the office like most RV parks. The parking surface is on the grass and when it rains, many of the spaces flood. The water drains fairly quickly in a day or two. You don't need to be an Escapees member to stay here but a member gets a discount. There are lots of activities here in the park. We would stay here again. We camped at Rainbow Plantation - Escapees Rainbow Park in a Motorhome.

Rustic Sands RV Resort Campground, Mexico Beach, Florida

Date of Stay: February, 2014 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

The rate is based on being here for a month. The previous reviewer's comment about not staying here if it rains is one I concur with. Even with a modest rain, this place floods in a number of areas. Since you are parked on mostly fine sand and soil, when it rains, the sand and soil splash up onto your rig and anything else close to the ground so everything is very dirty when you prepare to leave. They do come along and fill the worst mud holes with gravel at times. The parking spaces need to be spread with gravel to make for a better stay here. The utilities were adequate. The tree coverage is very great here so we were not able to obtain a satellite for DirecTV but they do have cable TV at no additional cost. There is no recycling here at all. Be careful when you exit the park because you could bottom out; this could be corrected with the addition of gravel. The high point here is the Tiki bar which has pretty good food and drinks with great evening entertainment. We will not be staying here again in the future.

A Big Wheel RV Park, Saint Marys, Georgia

Date of Stay: January, 2014 - $12.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed here four months so we got to know a whole lot about this park. The rate shown reflects the monthly price with electricity being an extra charge which for us normally was about $75 per month on average. Make sure you keep your receipts to alleviate any disputed electrical charges during your stay. There is a $50 electricity deposit upon check-in, as well. Make no mistake about it; this is a real nice RV park. All of the hookups were adequate as expected, and the large concrete pads in most spaces are some of the best we have ever parked on. The roads throughout the park are paved with asphalt and are real nice. There is a beautiful pond on site that has catch and release fishing. There is a laundromat for you as well. The park; however, has a number of things that need attention. The WiFi is very slow to nonexistent. Our Verizon signal; however, was a great 4G one so our phones and MiFi device worked very well for internet. This park has poor grounds and clubhouse maintenance that needs attention. The whole place could do with a good cleanup, but they have nobody responsible for those tasks. So they rely upon unpaid volunteers from the ranks of their paying customers to accomplish them. I myself pruned many of the trees in the park so that RVs could make it down the park roads and into their parking spaces. I also joined with others to put in flower beds and remove much of the tangle of weeds in the park. They really do need to retain a work camper to do the work that needs to be done here. The tree cover in the park is so heavy that it may be difficult to obtain a satellite signal from your provider in some spaces. In some cases, you may be able to cure the problem with some tree pruning. Local TV is available from your crank up antenna if you can’t get a satellite. There is no cable TV available here. For those who enjoy potlucks lucks, there is one on Sunday evening.. Propane is available in this park. There is plenty to do with Crooked River State Park close by and lots of historical sites and beautiful beaches nearby. As you can see, we have rated a large number of parks so we must compare this park with other parks we have rated. We might stay here again if we happened to be in the area. We camped at A Big Wheel RV Park in a Motorhome.

Hardeeville RV, Hardeeville, South Carolina

Date of Stay: September, 2013 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

This park is a bit funky. The parking surface is grass, some gravel and some dirt; that's the funky part. After a big rain like happens often here, it could be rather difficult. That's the bad news. The things that are good make it just fine being here. Most importantly is it's location of only a few miles from Savannah and Hilton Head. The cost reported is Passport America weekly rate. The utilities were quite adequate and well placed. The cable TV has a gazillion channels and the Wi-Fi is free and fast running about 10mbps. We had no problem leveling our rig. One problem in the park, however, is there is rarely anyone manning the office or even the phone for that matter. We would certainly stay here again in spite of some aggravations. We camped at Hardeeville RV in a Motorhome.

Lake Greenwood State Recreation Area, Ninety Six, South Carolina

Date of Stay: September, 2013 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

We camped in campground #2 in a beautiful spot right on the water of this beautiful lake. The price reflects $22 plus the numerous taxes that are added in. Our spot was paved with asphalt and was easy to level up on. Our utilities, water and 50 amp electric were adequate. The dump station looks very well conceived. They do recycle plastic bottles, newspaper and aluminum cans. We were able to receive DirecTV and a few local channels, as well. Our Verizon signal was weak, but usable. The park staff was helpful upon check in. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Lake Greenwood State Recreation Area in a Motorhome.

Raccoon Valley RV Park - Escapees Rainbow Park, Heiskell, Tennessee

Date of Stay: September, 2013 - $16.00
Overall Rating:

We are Escapees and the rate is based on a week's stay. All of the full hookups performed adequately but if you want cable TV, you must pay extra. The parking surface is crushed limestone gravel and our site was pretty level. This RV park is handy for shopping locally or for going to Knoxville. The Museum of Appalachia, one interstate exit away, is definitely a must see as is the museum in close-by Norris Dam State Park. The office staff were friendly and helpful albeit rather shy. We were able to get DirecTV just fine as we did a high speed Verizon Wireless connection at around 30 MBPS. We would stay here again.

Fort Boonesborough State Park, Richmond, Kentucky

Date of Stay: September, 2013 - $33.00
Overall Rating:

This is a beautiful state park, make no mistake about that. The forest is dense, in fact so dense that we could not get DirecTV from our spot. Our crank up antenna, however, was able to capture enough local channels to satisfy us. Our Verizon cell phone and broadband Internet connection was great. The park is pretty much dated with mostly asphalt pads that are short and narrow for larger RVs, and your tow vehicle has to be parked on the adjacent grass. Our spot #4 was level enough to make leveling our motorhome a breeze. Our space was on the road that leads to the park entrance and traffic past our motorhome was speedy and noisy at times. Speaking of noise, the traffic on the nearby highway is noisy, and the close-by park sewage treatment plant is very noisy; it runs all of the time. The electric and sewage hookups are adequate, but the water hookup is far enough away to require our 50 ft water hose. As I walked around the park, I noticed that a couple of RVs had to use at least 100 ft of hose to reach their water hookup. There are lots of activities in the park and lots to see and do in the area. I am not sure we would return to this park again with the high price of staying here not reflected in the park quality. We camped at Fort Boonesborough State Park in a Motorhome.

Lynnville Park Campground, Lynnville, Indiana

Date of Stay: August, 2013 - $18.00
Overall Rating:

Wow, what a find; I love this park. The park has full hookups that all perform as they should. We were able to level our rig very quickly. We were able to get DirecTV easily, and our Verizon phone and broadband wireless Internet worked flawlessly. The lake is just beautiful, and there were plenty of gravel roads in the park to walk the dog and get some exercise. The bicycling in the area is also very good with many paved country lanes with little or no traffic on which to ride. The RV spots are crushed limestone gravel which was adequate for both our rig and our toad. The employee at the entrance was real friendly and helpful. There is no recycling in the park. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Lynnville Park Campground in a Motorhome.

Double J Campground and RV Park, Chatham, Illinois

Date of Stay: August, 2013 - $36.00
Overall Rating:

The park was clean and our site was large enough to park both motorhome and Jeep with ease. The parking surface is crushed limestone gravel which tended to be a bit dusty at times. The site was almost completely level. All of the full hookup utilities were adequate and the cable TV was free with only a few channels available. Our DirecTV dish was able to operate fine in spite of the many large trees in the park. The Wi-Fi was free and worked fairly well. There is a good Verizon Wireless signal for MiFi or phone. The office personnel were very friendly and helpful. There is recycling in the park. The pool was great after a sweaty job hooking up. We would stay here again in spite of the high price we paid to stay. We camped at Double J Campground and RV Park in a Motorhome.

West Lake Park, Summit Campground, Davenport, Iowa

Date of Stay: August, 2013 - $21.00
Overall Rating:

The lady in the office was very helpful. The park is wooded with hardwood and a few conifers, and shade in the August heat was more welcome than having DirecTV from our dome through the trees. We couldn't get a satellite, but we got lots of local channels on our crank up antenna. You cannot make reservations so it is first come first served. It was a bit dicey since we were here ahead of the Labor Day holiday. Our spot was level. The water is quite a distance from some sites so you may need to have a longer hose and the sewer hookups in some sites may need a longer hose as well. The electric service was spot on. There is a picnic table and fire pit in each site. We really do like this park and definitely would stay here again. We camped at West Lake Park, Summit Campground in a Motorhome.

Blackhawk Park COE, De Soto, Wisconsin

Date of Stay: August, 2013 - $12.00
Overall Rating:

The park is a typical Corps of Engineers park. When we arrived the government employee was pretty clueless, however, about their sites and what was available in them. The 50 Amp site we had reserved was mostly grass to park our motorhome on, and since it had just rained we decided against parking there. The employee gave us a list of other sites, and we selected another one she said was 50 Amp which turned out to be 30 Amp. That worked out since the other sites would have prevented us from getting a DirecTV signal. Since it was pretty warm, we could only run one air conditioner which worked out OK anyway. Be advised that water access locations to fill your tank are very limited except at the dump station. We filled our tank at our last stop. There was good fishing from the bank for our grandchildren, and fire rings for them to have a campfire in the evening. The newer camping area in the park had better electric but no trees to shade you on some warm days. We would probably stay here again. We camped at Blackhawk Park COE in a Motorhome.

Coffee Creek RV Resort, Santo, Texas

Date of Stay: March, 2013 - $11.00
Overall Rating:

We came for four nights and decided to stay for a month. The rate I quote is based on the $250 per month price and projected electricity use of $75 for the month which is probably high. The people who run the park are wonderful and really go out of their way to make sure everything is perfect. We cannot find anything wrong with the place. The utilities are in the correct place and the electricity is spot on. There are laundry rooms, a great pool and hot tub. Our dog liked the dog yard. The park is spotless and only five years old. They host quite a number of RV rallies and we are looking forward to the bluegrass music festival in April. We will come back here over and over and over! We camped at Coffee Creek RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Midland RV Campground, Midland, Texas

Date of Stay: March, 2013 - $26.00
Overall Rating:

The lady who checked us in was great. She guided us to our spot where my wife took over helping me park. The hookups are adequate and there is free cable with your site. The roads and parking spots are dusty gravel so the park can be a bit dusty as the wind howls through here. We got the Escapee discount which was a pleasant surprise. We would stay here again for a night. We camped at Midland RV Campground in a Motorhome.
