Holiday RV Park, College Station, Texas

Date of Stay: November, 2019 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

Folks, as written, this is a difficult campground to get to when traveling North/West. Our GPS seemed to work but based on earlier posts, I did not entirely trust (mistake). When going north on Texas 6, get off on FM 2818 as indicated (signage is tiny). You will then turn left on 2818 at the next signal light. You'll go about 2.5 miles, and you will go past the RV park, on the left, going over an overpass. Stay in the right lane, next light is Holeman. Make a right, turn around at gas stations, getting back on to Holeman, then go left at same light to get back onto Parkway. RV Park is about 200 yards on your right. Hope this helps! Nice campground with level concrete sites, but close to busy Parkway, road noise. Owner very helpful when we got lost. We camped at Holiday RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Space Center RV Park, League City, Texas

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

We stayed in a pull through site. Concur with the July 2019 reviewer. This is a one-two night park for most folks. Traffic noise on frontage road and highway is bad. Neighbor had two large dogs on 15' line together barking the whole time I tried to hook up utilities. Spaced about six feet each side,max. Positives, close to space center, desk person friendly and helpful. We camped at Space Center RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Harpers Ferry / Civil War Battlefields KOA, Harpers Ferry, West Virginia

Date of Stay: October, 2019 - $66.00
Overall Rating:

A beautiful area, but one of the worst maintained and regulated KOAs we have stayed in (and we have stayed in many). They had just finished a "Halloween" weekend in the park. First off, they gave us a site so steep you would not be able to level the trailer. Park was 1/3 full, why not assign a better site? We moved, previous camper moved fire ring and picnic table and we could not even pull in. Had to drag table and fire ring to get in. Melted candy, marshmallow roasters, candy wrappers, and cigarette butts all over. You pay a premium price to stay here! Utility hookups are old. 30amp socket was cracked. Sewer connection pipe came out when I tried to connect. Next, apparently an RV group decided to have a large party, other guests parked in empty sites and RV arrivals had to track down folks to move cars so they could get in. Next, campers with a 5th wheeler pulled next to us, totally off gravel pad and slide out into my space, about 18" from our trailer. Should not be my responsibility to have them correct placement. Meantime, lots of golf carts flying by with "employees" out for joyrides, doing NO cleanups in sites. Read before, they charge a resort fee ($10.00). Pool closed, restaurants closed, coffee shop closed. Where is the resort? Ripoff. Unfortunately, there are no other options in the area. Sad campground. We camped at Harpers Ferry / Civil War Battlefields KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

One plus, you can walk to the Harpers Ferry Visitor Center from the campground (about 2 miles). However, park signage is bad. When you go through the gate, look for bullard with hiker sticker on it (at the end of gate), path will take you to visitor center. Visitor center says bureaucracy prevents better sign placement.

Williamsburg / Busch Gardens Area KOA, Williamsburg, Virginia

Date of Stay: October, 2019 - $65.00
Overall Rating:

As written, this is a very nice campground with friendly, helpful staff. The only real beef I have with the campground is that some of the sites (ours included) had steep drop offs in the front, with loose gravel. Backing up into the site with a tow vehicle is tricky- lots of spinning tires. We camped at Williamsburg / Busch Gardens Area KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

The store does sell packages for the colonial triangle. However, decision making details were not provided that could affect purchase. For example, Seniors with gold cards can save a lot of money at Yorktown and Jamestown- cheaper to do it yourself. We enjoyed Jamestown and Yorktown but felt that Colonial Williamsburg was a big tourist $$$ trap. You can ride the bus, park, and walk around the town for free. You pay to go inside buildings, and only about 30% are open each day.

North Carolina State Fairgrounds Campground, Raleigh, North Carolina

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

Okay, we read the review and thought we'd give the fairgrounds a shot. BIG mistake. About three days before we arrived, we called the campground to ensure they had space. He indicated they had plenty for the days we were there. So, we arrived, every space in the large campground was occupied. There is a Bluegrass festival in Raleigh and apparently the person we called did not know about it. We also learned the Bluegrass Association "reserved" spaces for their hundreds of members and overbooked. We slso learned that apparently hurricane Dorian victims are living in the park. So, we were ""fortunate to get a space in the overflow section, Gate 5. Worst place we've ever stayed. Loud, noisy road directly across from a mill, train crossing about 100 feet from the sites. No sleep at all. Sites here are very steep slope downward- you'll never level it. No shade, no sealed sewer connections. My best advice is to find a campground with a reservation system that guarantees you a space. Our last experience with, "no reservation required." We camped at North Carolina State Fairgrounds Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We went to visit the State Capitol in Raleigh. Worst Capitol access at any we've been to. Security very rude. Not worth the effort.

Statesville / I-77 KOA, Statesville, North Carolina

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

Again, reviews do not match our experience. 50/30 hookup spaces look much better than 30 amp only. 30 amp sites have no shade, unlevel, and a ratty old travel trailer parked in the middle. Not sure why this older park does not have shade at 30 amp sites. Also, loud road noise from SR77. If you're 30 amp only, would skip this campground. We camped at Statesville / I-77 KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Alpine Hideaway Campground, Pigeon Forge, Tennessee

Date of Stay: September, 2019 - $48.00
Overall Rating:

This is another example of misleading reviews. Folks, be careful. This park is located in a narrow "hollow". I would estimate this park to be about 80 ft. wide. There are two rows of rv spaces. Road in the middle is maybe 8ft. wide. With a 28' travel trailer, I could not back into the site due to permanent residents parked cars blocking access. Made three attempts at different sites, same result. One site had a sewer hookup 12" above the ground. Another had no hookup at all. Maybe they have clean restrooms, but you'll walk a good 100 yards up a hill to get to them. Signage and driving directions very confusing. Major dusappointment. We camped at Alpine Hideaway Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

We approached Pigeon Forge from I-40 East. We wanted to go to Dollywood. It s quite a ways from the Interstate on terrible roads not suited for towing. Recommend staying at a location near the Interstate and driving tow vehicle to the Park.

Cowboy RV Park, Pocatello, Idaho

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

Pros about this park, convenient location, biking and shopping close by, great staff. Cons, the spaces as mentioned earlier are strange. With close spacing on both sides, you will have either a trailer or motor home parked right in front or back of you, inches away. NO privacy, like being in a fishbowl. The area this park is in, not a good neck of the woods. Some of the permanents around the perimeter are rough, hooligan types. Mobile home park in the rear is ROUGH. I would keep everything locked up. Not sure I would come back again. We camped at Cowboy RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Twin Falls / Jerome KOA, Jerome, Idaho

Date of Stay: July, 2019 - $47.00
Overall Rating:

This is a very well run park. Sites are tight and they use the "buddy" hookups so not a lot of privacy. Shade is good for hot Idaho summers. Only problems that I see (which I believe are not the local park's fault) are the lack of directional signage and impacts from summer campfire smoke. On northbound SR 93, there is no directional sign guiding you to the frontage road. GPS is unreliable as well. Best advice is when approaching northbound, turn left onto the frontage road the minute you spot the KOA sign which is in front of the campfire. As to the smoke, the way the sites are paired up, the close proximity to each other and, 80 degree nights when the air is stagnant, do not count on opening your windows for fresh air at night. It's bad. Community campfire sites in the front or back of the park and a "curfew"time for summer campfires might be the answer. I believe 90% of campers probably agree. We camped at Twin Falls / Jerome KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Hi Valley RV Park, Boise, Idaho

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

Not sure why this park got such high earlier ratings. It does take a while down a two lane road to get here, be warned. Biggest thing, we are in 90+ plus heat and absolutely no shade at the sites we are in (which I believe are short term). The picture on their website shows shade trees, but that appears to be in the long term area. Gravel at the sites is very loose, like going through sand. Not sure why they don't compact it. Also sloped, not level. Unless you like the hot sun beating down, and a nice, long trip through the suburbs, I would re-think this one. We camped at Hi Valley RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Lewis & Clark Golf & RV Park, Astoria, Oregon

Date of Stay: July, 2019 - $41.00
Overall Rating:

Interesting that previous commenters did not mention the close proximity to Business 101 and the traffic noise from trucks and motorcycles. Pull-ins are about 50 feet from highway. Sleep is difficult. There are a back row of permanents and lots of racing through parking lot. Sites are long, but narrow with hookups set further back. Needed two sewer hoses for hookup.
