Galveston Island RV Resort, Galveston, Texas

Date of Stay: April, 2019 - $43.00
Overall Rating:

This is a clean, nice looking park. The office is in the back of the park up some stairs. Staff was very welcoming and friendly. They have frozen "adult" beverages for sale which they were excited to tell us about. All sites and interior roads are paved. Water does puddle, especially in the interior roads, and the road never dried while we there despite several days without rain. Sites are long and wide. We were able to park the car beside the motorhome. Our site was very level but we saw a couple where the wheels were barely touching. On the bright side, most appeared level. Sites are about 15 feet apart with a strip of grass and sometimes a small palm tree. There is no shade. We were on the second row near the front and had a slim view of the gulf between houses - if we looked out the right window :) It is pretty quiet at night but lots of traffic noise during the day. Beach access is just down the road, and the beach is not that busy. Directv worked fine, and they also have cable. Verizon was 4g 5 bars. The WII FI didn't work - we could connect but almost immediately got kicked off. We used the hot spots on our phones. There are beautiful Victorian houses on the Tree Sculpture tour which we didn't expect in Galveston. The Tree Sculpture tour is kind of interesting. There are lots of touristy things to do and touristy restaurants but also a lot of local restaurants. Note: The park is building new sites, and there is construction noise. More apparent in some of the back-in sites that are right by it. We camped at Galveston Island RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Van Horn RV Park (formerly Van Horn KOA), Van Horn, Texas

Date of Stay: April, 2019 - $36.00
Overall Rating:

Easy check-in and friendly staff. Easy on/off the interstate. Our site was pretty level and long enough for our 45 MH and tow. Decent enough spacing between sites. Interior roads and sites are gravel and red dirt. Except for the occasional train whistle, it was pretty quiet. Can hear traffic faintly off in the distance from the highway. The WII FI didn't work - we could connect but there was no internet. Directv and Verizon worked fine. There is a small restaurant on site but we didn't visit. They give you a menu when you check-in though. Good for an overnight. We camped at Van Horn RV Park (formerly Van Horn KOA) in a Motorhome.

Sunset RV Resort, Austin, Texas

Date of Stay: March, 2019 - $34.00
Overall Rating:

Sunset is a nice looking park with trees, grass, and flowers. The Blue Bonnets were blooming when we were there. We never met or saw the owners. There was an envelope on door with instructions to our site and info about the park. The best way we found to communicate with them was by email. The park is mostly long term but the sites were all neat and tidy. The spacing between sites varied from very spacious to nearby. Our gravel site was plenty long enough for the motorhome and tow. It was level front to back but not side to side. Our DS wheels were just off the ground. Interior roads can be a little tight maneuvering in larger RVs but doable. The WII FI didn't work - we could connect but almost immediately kicked off. DirecTV worked fine in our site but it wouldn't be possible in all sites due to trees. Verizon was 4g 4-5 bars which was great as we used our hot spots to get on the internet. It is quiet at night but traffic noise starts up early on Hamilton Pool road and continues all day. The park is about 25 minutes to Austin. There is tons of traffic no matter what time of day. There is a mall about 10 minutes away. We truly enjoyed Austin. We expected another flat, dry Texas town but Austin is the opposite. A very nice surprise! There are no lack of restaurants to choose from - we fit in as many as we could. There are also lots of parks around and opportunities to get on the water abound. We camped at Sunset RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Junction/North Llano River RV Park, Junction, Texas

Date of Stay: March, 2019 - $37.00
Overall Rating:

Easy check-in and friendly staff. Easy on/off the interstate. Interior roads and sites are gravel and red dirt. Either decent spacing between sites or very close. The sites are not arranged in typical fashion but are angled in many different directions. WII FI either worked or didn't - it would just stop. Directv worked fine in our site. There are trees but none were in bloom when we were there. Verizon was 1x 3 bars so we could text and make calls. Have mixed feelings about this park - I think if they just tidied it up a bit it would be a nice park. It is on the river but not necessarily a pretty section of it. There are quite a few long term RVs that seem to be in one section. They looked neat enough though. There was some traffic noise but it wasn't too bad. Not sure if we would stay here again or not. We camped at Junction/North Llano River RV Park in a Motorhome.

Alamogordo/ White Sands KOA, Alamogordo, New Mexico

Date of Stay: March, 2019 - $37.00
Overall Rating:

Easy check-in and friendly staff. They will loan you sleds to take to White Sands, which was great. There is an older section (most of the park) and a newer section. The older section has 9 50 amp sites, and the newer section has 7 sites and all are 50 amp. The new sites have lots of space and nice wooden dividers between sites - we would have requested one of these had we known. We were in the older section. Sites are close but not right on top of each other. There is a concrete table and small concrete divider with a small tree. We were on the end so only grass on the driver side. Our site was pretty level, and they all looked pretty level. The WII FI worked well or not at all. Directv worked fine. Cable TV was fuzzy but could be a bad connection on our part. Verizon had decent coverage. Sites and roads are gravel and dirt. Nice view of the mountains if you overlook the tops of RVs and fences :) Convenient location to White Sands and other areas to visit. Don't expect a peaceful night's sleep! The trains ... OMG the trains. They literally sound like they are coming thru the park. And there are a ton of them. There are also a lot of souped up cars driving around in the middle of the night and dogs barking from nearby neighborhoods. Most likely will not return due to the excessive noise. We camped at Alamogordo/ White Sands KOA in a Motorhome.

Tucson / Lazydays KOA, Tucson, Arizona

Date of Stay: March, 2019 - $46.00
Overall Rating:

This is a nice looking and large park. Check-in was quick, and the staff was polite. There is a barbecue restaurant on site that stayed pretty busy. There are "covered" sites but it is solar panels so it is not complete coverage. There is a stretch of grass and a citrus tree between sites. The sites are close together but not right on top of each other. Our site was surprisingly very unlevel - mostly side to side but also different in the front and back. We were afraid of torquing the frame so we settled with mostly level. The gravel just needs to be graded which should be done after each RV leaves. Our site was long enough for the car and motorhome but there was also a paved spot next to the motorhome for the car. You are allowed to pick fruit which was in season when we were there so we helped ourselves to grapefruits, oranges and lemons. The WII FI, which was tengointernet, worked good for once. Directv satellite worked fine in our site but they also have cable. You will hear trains, planes and automobiles. The park is not in the best part of town but they have a gate and concertina wire. We were only there for one night so didn't use any of the amenities. We camped at Tucson / Lazydays KOA in a Motorhome.

Las Cruces KOA, Las Cruces, New Mexico

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

Nice welcome with your name on board outside the office. The staff was friendly and efficient. The interior roads and sites are a mix of dirt and small gravel - which, yes, follows you inside with a vengeance. It was a quiet park which is a big positive. Our site was fairly level - most sites on the perimeter looked about the same. The interior sites varied. Some were level some were not. Saw a couple of RV's on blocks. Site spacing depends on the site. Some were pretty close while others were fairly spacious. Our site was long enough for the motorhome, and we parked the car next to it. The cable worked with a few fuzzy channels. Directv worked fine (until the wind knocked it around). Verizon was 4g 1 bar but we were still able to use our hotspot. Which was good because we could not use WII FI. It kept dropping us. The water had a weird taste and left water marks on faucets and glass. We purchased several gallons of water to drink. There are lots of roaming cats (but hey, they keep the rodents under control!) and birds that like to peck on the roof. Not their fault but the wind blew almost constantly while we were there - like hurricane force. It blew dirt everywhere - both vehicles were filthy. Sites 10-29 have the best view (and utilities on both sides). What a view at night - amazing sunsets and then the sparkling lights of Las Cruces. There are several public areas set up that anyone can visit to take pictures. The park is convenient to downtown and various hikes in the Organ Mountains. It's a bit on the pricey side but we would stay here again if we have one of the view sites. The views are what would draw us back. We camped at Las Cruces KOA in a Motorhome.

Carefree Village Resort, Yuma, Arizona

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

Carefree Village is a large park: 400 ish sites with more planned. The staff is extremely friendly and accommodating. This was our first visit, and we were treated like old friends. The park consists of huge gravel areas with RV sites one after another. There is no privacy between sites except all the gravel. There is no vegetation or trees. The sites are very wide with a spot for rv and room for a car, sometimes two.

There are tons of amenities. Two swimming pools, two hot tubs, pool tables, a ping pong table, a small 9 hole miniature golf, a putting green, several pickle ball courts, several shuffleboard courts, a couple bocce courts, and card rooms with tables. Also, there are some planned activities.

Directv worked fine. They have cable but we didn't use it. Verizon was 4g and 3 bars. The WII FI is very unreliable (which is shocking for such a nice resort) so we relied on our hotspots most of the time. It's busy during the day: you can hear traffic, airplanes, helicopters, and trains. There are only 4 trash bins for the whole park, and they were overflowing most days. They either need more trash bins or more frequent pick up. There are lots of minerals in the water so it leaves stains. Overall, it's a decent park, and we would stay again if in the area. We camped at Carefree Village Resort in a Motorhome.

Cattlerest RV Park and Saloon, Willcox, Arizona

Date of Stay: December, 2018 - $24.00
Overall Rating:

Small park about half long term but sites are neat. Sites and roads are small red rock/dirt. Sites are long but close (some closer than others) with just a small strip of grass between sites. Our site was pretty level. We fit with our 45 MH and tow. There is some train rumbling off in the distance. Very little road noise just a bit from I-10BL. There is a neat saloon on-site with pool tables, dance floor and full bar. There is outdoor seating too. Verizon was 4g 4 bars and Directv worked fine. Their WII FI worked great. If you are headed west on I-10 take exit 336 and it's only 2 miles to the park. Our GPS wanted us to exit earlier and take us through town. We would definitely stay here again.

Mountain View RV Park, Van Horn, Texas

Date of Stay: December, 2018 - $39.00
Overall Rating:

This RV park is right off of I-10. Surprisingly, it wasn't overly noisy; however, we were parked near the back. Trains could be heard but mostly rumbling with a few horns. The internet did not work even with our extender. Directv satellite worked fine and Verizon was 4g 3 bars. Once you check-in, you pick your own site. The interior roads and sites are red dirt/fine gravel - yes it tracks everywhere. There is no real distinction between the end of a site and the beginning of a road which was a benefit for us. We had to pull the MH far up to get the tow out of the middle of the road which put the front of the MH jutting out. Luckily, there were no rv sites in front of us so we weren't blocking anything. The site was pretty level, and utilities worked fine. Sites are close together with a large rock or pine tree in between. Roads are wide and easy to navigate. They have a very large dog park for those with pets. We would stay again but I think they are overpriced for what you get. We camped at Mountain View RV Park in a Motorhome.

Wills Creek RV Park, Fort Payne, Alabama

Date of Stay: December, 2018 - $28.00
Overall Rating:

Don't trust your GPS on this address. Ours said we were there before we actually got to the RV park. We ended up slamming on the brakes when we finally saw the entrance. The park is across from the airport behind some trees. Once you get back there, it's a nice country setting. Check in was fast, easy and friendly. You pick whichever site you want. The sites and interior roads are gravel, some of it pretty thick. The sites all looked fairly level. They are narrow with trees at most sites at the entrance and exit which makes it challenging when towing. We took a branch right across the front windshield as there was no way to avoid it. Also, our passenger side slide nudged up against another tree.All the branches of the trees were hanging low maybe from rain or else they need a good trimming. We just fit in the site with our 45 foot MH and tow. There was lots of standing water in the roads and sites as it had been raining. The sites are pretty close together with a strip of grass and sometimes a tree or two. Verizon was 4g 3 bars and Directv satellite locked on fine. The WII FI worked good for the most part. There are quite a few long-term renters with some rather interesting vehicles. There are planes, trains and automobiles. Sometimes the trains blew their horns for a very long time. Tractor trailers can be heard either from the I-59 or airport road. Overall, an ok park but noisier than we expected. We camped at Wills Creek RV Park in a Motorhome.

The Refuge on Roanoke Island, Wanchese, North Carolina

Date of Stay: December, 2018 - $42.00
Overall Rating:

This is a no frills RV park. We never saw or met anyone that works there. We only spoke on the phone to make the reservation. There is road noise from Hwy 345 but it's not terrible. The park is mostly long term with 14 sites for daily rental. Some of the long term sites were a bit neglected but overall not too bad. All 14 daily sites back up to a pond and are all back-in. Sites are gravel/sand. There is a small strip of "grass" between sites and no privacy. They are pretty insistent that you don't park on the grass - as sparse as it is. We along with other visitors had to park our tow vehicles sideways (avoiding the grass of course) to fit in the spot. Sites are in the open and there is no shade. The WII FI works ok but slows down considerably at times. Luckily, there is no password as we received no information on the park - we had to hunt for a trash bin. Directv worked fine. Verizon was strong at 4g 4/5 bars. Pretty pricey for what you get even in the off season. We might return again but only because the park is close to family. We camped at The Refuge on Roanoke Island in a Motorhome.

Jones Station RV Park, Mebane, North Carolina

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

We only spent a night here and it was fine. Check-in was easy, and the host was personable. Interior roads and sites are gravel - pretty thick in some places. The interior roads are tight for larger rigs towing but doable. We had to do some fancy footwork to get into our site without unhooking the tow. It is predominately long term and/or seasonal. All sites are neat and tidy though. Most sites are surrounded by trees but there are a few that have more sun. All sites looked close to level if not spot on level. There is decent spacing with some are better than others. We had trees between us and the next site. Directv locked on but there was lots of interference to the point that we just stopped watching. We could not get WII FI in our site. Verizon was 4g 3 bars so we used our hotspot. It was quiet at night, and we would stay here again. We camped at Jones Station RV Park in a Motorhome.

Riverside Campground & Resort, Sevierville, Tennessee

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

Upon entering Riverside park there is not a lot of curb appeal at least not in November. There is a slightly steepish, turning entrance and you pull up in front of a small building. We had reserved ahead, and the check-in was quick and functional. They give you a map and off you go to your site. There are back-in sites along the river but they are rather short. We witnessed a long 5th wheel trying to get into one of these sites, and he used several opposite (luckily empty) sites to back in. And his back end was almost over the river. A small motorhome could pull in but would have to run utilities underneath. Our pull-thru site was narrow and flanked by trees so we had to jockey a bit to get situated. It would have been a challenge with the tow hooked up. The site left little room for our tow vehicle even with parking it sideways. If you want an overnight and don't want to unhook specify a pull-thru without trees. The sites are all gravel and pretty level. There is no privacy just a little grass space between sites with a picnic table. It was raining when we arrived and there was lots of standing water in most sites and the interior roads. It was not crowded when we we here and it was quiet. Internet works pretty good although it slows down here and there. Directv would not lock in due to trees in our site but would have in the pull-thrus without trees. They do have cable. Verizon was strong with 4g - 3 bars. We found it to be pricey, even off season, for what you get. Although they advertise that the park is strictly a nightly vacation park there are permanent double-wides in the middle of the park. And yes, the park is located near Gatlinburg but the traffic to get there is horrendous. We attempted to go into Gatlinburg which would have taken 1 ½ hours to go 18 miles! We passed on that! BTW if you like to consume adult beverages come fully stocked - there are only a couple of liquor stores in the area. We camped at Riverside Campground & Resort in a Motorhome.

Bairdsnest Campground, Mentone, Alabama

Date of Stay: November, 2018 - $36.00
Overall Rating:

Bairdsnest is a small, tidy park that is off the beaten track. It is by a very busy road that is quite noisy. There are some overhanging branches at the main entrance that you just can't avoid. We cringed going in and coming back out. There is one interior road that is an oval, and the turn at the back is a bit tight. There are sites on the sides and sites in the middle. Most sites have concrete pads. Some are definitely more suitable for larger rigs. There are pull-thru and back-in sites. Our site was a pull-thru but you had to drive through muddy, wet grass to get to the concrete pad. The pad had a steep drop off at the front so we had to back out. There is no direct shade but there are trees around the perimeter. Directv worked fine in our site and probably would in all sites. There is no cell service. We could not get the WII FI to work at our site despite help from the owner. So be prepared to be incommunicado! The owners are nice and are trying to upgrade the park. It is still a work in progress. We camped at Bairdsnest Campground in a Motorhome.
