O'Connell's Yogi Bear Park, Amboy, Illinois

Date of Stay: September, 2019 - $1.00
Overall Rating:

We came in on Labor Day and the park was very quiet after the big weekend. While I think they might use other space, the biggest space for Thousand Trails members is down in the 1900s and 2000s if you look at the site maps. We had site 2006 which is an end. I would be concerned if I was in the middle of any of those rows as they are low. We had a thunderstorm the first night and those sites were 'lakeshore' for 2-3 days after the rain. These strips of sites are almost like bowls so end stay to the ends of the rows in the 1900s and 2000s as the center spaces can flood. All in this area are pull-through. The sites are VERY clean, picnic tables all in nice condition and the grass is wonderful. There are so many trails and places to bike/walk around the lake/preserve. The staff is around all the time, fixing, picking up trash both at sites and if found on the ground. They are very attentive. I checked 'not clean showers' only because they all were having dirt on the floors and walls. They could be a little cleaner in my opinion. We used the showers and pool near the 2000s sites. The hot tub was very nice and clean. The pool was frigid. In mid-summer, probably OK but already on September 2 was an ice box. From my perspective, I'd like to spend a few weeks here and the value if you're a Thousand Trails member is incredible. We camped at O'Connell's Yogi Bear Park in a Motorhome.

The park is not far from farms selling fresh eggs and about 20 minutes from Aldi/WalMart if you need to get anything.

Twin Springs Resort Campground, Menomonie, Wisconsin

Date of Stay: August, 2019 - $50.00
Overall Rating:

This being close to my home, we've stayed here for many years through different camping rigs. This was my longest stay. I agree their price is too high for what you get from an amenity perspective. What is great is that they usually have space. In this case, it is the closest I could get to Minnesota for the State Fair. I have been in high end Thousand Trail parks that are not as nice nor do they have as much green as this park. Restrooms are old but always cleaned and functional. Sites are grassy which is so nice to have. Pool is maintained even when not busy. The family has owned this place for 54 years. My biggest complaint is that Good Sam discounts are only military or over 55. We were in A9, W-S-E. Good clean power (30 Amp). Cash or check only at this RV park. No credit/debit cards. I work remotely. My AT&T hot-spot was not able to provide any data. I had to use T-Mobile on my phone for connectivity. The place is quiet and close to town for anything you'd need. We camped at Twin Springs Resort Campground in a Motorhome.

Bay Landing RV Campground, Bridgeport, Texas

Date of Stay: August, 2019 - $1.00
Overall Rating:

Checked in on a Sunday. Nobody in Ranger Station. Backed up traffic while I waited for someone to come and I blocked the entry. Opted to be near the clubhouse, found a 30 AMP site (101). Level site, no grass just rocks and gravel. Asked about 30 AMP being good here and told it was fine but could not run anything in the RV along with A/C. Never had issues, hence why I asked. Breaker blew every time any second appliance was run in conjunction with A/C. This has only happened to me at one other park. Poor power here. The other loop is a long way from the pool. Shower house on this side is old, run down, tiny shower, no bench for dressing. Pool was nice and appreciated in the warm weather. The lake looked inviting and some of the sport areas (basketball, horseshoes, etc) were good. The place needs some updates and effort and will be back in what I consider a Thousand Trails level property. Connectivity: T-Mobile was zero. AT&T was very good. I have a AT&T Netgear Nighthawk without any boosters and managed 35 Mbps download speed. Bring what you need here especially if you do not have a tow vehicle. We camped at Bay Landing RV Campground in a Motorhome.
