Almost Heaven RV Resort, Manvel, Texas

Date of Stay: January, 2011 - $27.00
Overall Rating:

The new manager is, indeed, on the ball. Very personable, very helpful and very understanding. We will definitely return if we are sent back to that area. On our return, there are some things that we hope there will have been time for the management to address. The roads need some work especially at the entrance where the potholes are in the process of becoming craters, and the trees in the entrance scraped the roof of the RV. It seems that in the 6 months that the new folks have been at the place, some housekeeping issues could have been rectified: the bathrooms, showers and laundry rooms really need a thorough cleaning and a couple coats of paint. That's a cheap fix. The grounds are nice, it's not too difficult to access and the staff is great. We hope that they get a chance to make it into the beautiful place that it could be. We camped at Almost Heaven RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Country Campground, Detroit Lakes, Minnesota

Date of Stay: July, 2010 - $27.00
Overall Rating:

It's an OK place. Very nicely kept by friendly people. Our site was grass and our 35' motorhome felt like it would bog down but didn't. I did leave some ruts but no divots. The site was a little short and only 30 amp. We came in late and the sign said there were 50 amp sites, but I don't know. The bathhouse is accessed by a key for which one pays a $5.00 deposit. Trouble is one shower, one toilet and everyone has a key. So you are in the shower and you don't know who is coming in. Our "cable" TV provided one channel. Not sure what was up with that since we don't watch much TV anyway. Kids enjoyed the free paddle boats and rec. room. We might go back. Only a 6 because this advertises itself as a Passport campground on its website and states that it gives the discount, but they don't on weekends, or the month of July. We had to go back and called them back, and the non-discount period extends to sometime in August, too. We camped at Country Campground in a Motorhome.

Big Red Barn RV Park, Carthage, Missouri

Date of Stay: May, 2010 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

Park has gravel roads and sites. We were here during a very rainy week and the sites took on water, but it drained surprisingly well. (Most of the area was under flood warnings, and many of the nearby creeks were were flooded.) The cable TV worked well and any thing that didn't work was fixed promptly. The owner was personable. The place is clean and neat. The laundry machines were not reasonably priced. There is limited playground equipment at a church in the camp's backyard that my children used. There are several places for running and playing ball. Not a resort, but all in all a nice, friendly place to hang out for a few days. We camped at Big Red Barn RV Park in a Motorhome.

Roodhouse community park, Roodhouse, Illinois

Date of Stay: May, 2010 - $8.00
Overall Rating:

We needed a place for an extended stay near Jacksonville, IL and there are few other options. The road into the campground is barely big enough for two vehicles and not big enough when one of the vehicles is an RV. Someone is going to have to pull over and yield. The park roads are gravel and the sites are grass and gravel and not very level. We rarely use blocks but they were necessary here. The park is large and very beautifully maintained. The sites are strangely laid out and crowded. We shared water with one or maybe two other sites, I couldn't tell. One is required to mow one's site with the provided mower and weed eater. This is acceptable as the sites are small and so is the fee. Security is very good. There are a lot of year-round residents. The one thing I found disturbing was that there seems to be a set of rules for the people who live there and another for visitors. We would go back if we had to, but would not go out of our way to come here. The managers were on top of everything and easy and pleasant to work with. We camped at Roodhouse community park in a Motorhome.

MGM Lakeside Campground, Granite City, Illinois

Date of Stay: May, 2010 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

Despite its unkempt and tired appearance, we had a nice time here. The bathrooms are serviceable, ditto the shower. The fishing is great, though. It's not exactly "family friendly" in the same sense that cg's with playgrounds, trails, open spaces are, but it not anti-kid either. There are a lot of permanent residents, and those that we met have been friendly and helpful. We'd probably stay here again based on price and necessity. We camped at MGM Lakeside Campground in a Motorhome.

Mark Twain Cave Campground, Hannibal, Missouri

Date of Stay: May, 2010 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

The campground is close enough to town that one can walk to the sites. It's a long walk - almost 2 miles on a busy highway up and down a steep hill, but it is doable. The Caves are in the camp complex and across the street is a tourist-y fun park. So plenty of tourist type things to do. Keyword: tourist. We thought the park was over priced. The roads are not too bad and they are wide enough, the layout is pretty good. The bathrooms are atrocious - buggy, moldy, torn linoleum and nasty shower curtains/stalls, distinct sewage odor. The laundry room needs attention as well. There is a nice playground and a small creek running through the cg, so ambiance is good and kids could run, play and explore. It is quiet and the train and road noise is distant. The staff is nice. Too dirty for a place charging over $30. We camped at Mark Twain Cave Campground in a Motorhome.

Hickory Haven Campground, Keokuk, Iowa

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

This is a very nice campground with lots of beautiful old shade trees. The bathrooms are older but very clean, same with the laundry room. There is a small, but nice playground area. And if you like to fish there are some big catfish in the pond. The sites are well-spaced. The roads and sites are gravel. It gets boggy after a heavy rain. There are sites that back up almost to the water. We camped at Hickory Haven Campground in a Motorhome.

Owl's Nest Campground, Junction City, Kansas

Date of Stay: March, 2010 - $27.00
Overall Rating:

It's crowded here, but the place is neat, clean and well taken care of. The owner is personable, friendly and helpful. It's pretty close to the highway and there is a train track nearby, so adjust accordingly. The access road is well-paved and the sites are level. Electricity was fine and the water was good. I gave it a 10 because of the helpfulness of the owner. We camped at Owl's Nest Campground in a Motorhome.

Whispering Oaks Campground, Gilson, Illinois

Date of Stay: February, 2010 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed here in the very depth of winter during a three day snowstorm. This campground is about 15 minutes from Galesburg, IL. We were glad to find this place at this time of year with full hookups! The park manager was very kind and accommodating - even when the water froze and he had to come out and dig it up. The pipe froze underground and he had to dig it up, bit it was fixed in less than half an hour. The road was plowed each day. We were the only campers out here, and the bathroom facilities were closed for the winter so can't speak to that. Not much to do here in the winter, but we enjoyed the quiet and the hills were great for kids sledding. The interior roads seem tight but we easily maneuvered our 35 ft motorhome. The place looks like it's been there awhile. There are some pieces of heavy equipment there by the Office and it won't pass as a resort spot, but nothing really objectionable. There were several large 5th wheels there - looked like folks came and went throughout the year (in good repair). Do not use your GPS directions to find this place - call and get directions! It's easy to find and just a few miles from I-74 but the roads have been changed and renamed in the area and the GPS directions are way off. We would go back. We camped at Whispering Oaks Campground in a Motorhome.

Indian Hills RV Park, Albia, Iowa

Date of Stay: January, 2010 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

Yep, it's a small park close to a highway and a railroad track. Yep, the sites are gravel, but we did not find them to be muddy or rutted. But the owners and staff make this a special place worth noticing. Very helpful and accommodating. In the middle of winter, the sparkling clean, heated pool is a refreshing treat. RV'ers have access to all the amenities of the Inn - even the showers with guest towels. This place goes on our list of places we hope to return to someday. We camped at Indian Hills RV Park in a Motorhome.

Douglas KOA, Douglas, Wyoming

Date of Stay: October, 2009 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

This was our first experience at a KOA and it has been wonderful. The owners were helpful, friendly and very accommodating. The children especially enjoyed the well-maintained Putt-putt golf. The sites were not terribly crowded. The campground is run by folks who really seem to enjoy working with campers. We camped at Douglas KOA in a Motorhome.
