New Frontier RV Park, Winnemucca, Nevada

Date of Stay: October, 2018 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

We pulled into this park on a whim as we were "passing thru" Winnemucca on our way to visit family. It was near dark when we arrived without a reservation and the young lady at the desk was friendly and welcoming. I ran down the list of memberships and had the option of using my Passport America or Good Sam cards. The PA card brought the site price down to $10 as they've just switched over to their off season rates. A full hook-up is a real deal at that price! We were given a back-in site near the dog parks and the thoughtfully angled spaces made backing in easy (even in the dark!). I had a poor ATT signal for my own wi-fi so I used the park's and it worked just fine for me to write this review. We would stay here again for sure as the layout is far more private than most other parks with the angled sites and tasteful landscaping. We camped at New Frontier RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

We took a drive through downtown Winnemucca after dark and found the town was quiet and easy to navigate. We also visited The Martin Hotel which is a very old Basque landmark restaurant. After a quick perusal of the menu, we went in search of something simpler (and much less expensive) to eat. I'm sure this restaurant is a worthwhile experience, but not after 400+ miles on the road.

Snake River RV Park & Campground, Idaho Falls, Idaho

Date of Stay: October, 2018 - $48.00
Overall Rating:

We checked the reviews on two campgrounds in Idaho Falls prior to our arrival and decided not to stay here due to the negative review. Fortunately, our first choice of the campground in the middle of town didn't work out since they didn't have any available spaces. So, we backtracked to this campground and were PLEASANTLY surprised to find that this was a much better campground than we expected. The campground and facilities are clean and well-maintained. The park has a mixture of drop-in campers and people who live here full-time. All of the full-timers have nicely maintained sites. The staff is very friendly and the groundskeeper helped us out with a small problem we had with the water hookup. We stayed here for four nights and enjoyed every one of them. We will definitely stay here again. We camped at Snake River RV Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

The actual falls in Idaho Falls are very close to the campground. Also make sure to visit Reed's Dairy on Broadway for some of the best ice cream ever!

Merry Widow Health Mine and Campground, Basin, Montana

Date of Stay: October, 2018 - $16.00
Overall Rating:

We stopped here for an overnight visit on our way to Idaho. There were plenty of spaces available and we used the self-check-in option. The park is very clean and quiet with very few occupants at this time. The hook-ups are well-placed and fairly easy to use. I would be willing to stay here another time and learn more about the mine, but we're on a schedule so...... We camped at Merry Widow Health Mine and Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We didn't have time to explore the area beyond our campsite as it was cold, rainy, and getting dark when we arrived. I would be willing to come back in the future to learn more about the health benefits of the mine.

Trails West RV Park, Shelby, Montana

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

We stayed at this campground purely out of necessity as we were coming out of bad weather in Canada and needed a place to stop for the night and get warm. We made it to Shelby on gas fumes and stopped at the nearby Pilot station. Seeing the RV's from the highway off ramp, we headed there after fueling up. We didn't begrudge the $42 fee as we needed the hookup and the rest after a long day of driving. If we had activated our Passport America membership prior to checking in, the cost was less than $20 for the night, but we didn't have a chance to take care of that yet. The young woman at the check-in desk of the Best Western was friendly and quickly checked me into a spot. The park was clean and easy to navigate even in the dark. We would happily stay there again if we ever pass through Shelby in the future. We camped at Trails West RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Fas Gas RV Park, Haines Junction, Yukon

Date of Stay: May, 2011 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

This is basically an RV parking lot with fairly level gravel sites offset by small posts and a few scattered picnic tables. It got us off the road for a night of rest. The Wi-Fi worked great! We camped at Fas Gas RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Yukon Motel & Lakeshore Resort, Teslin, Yukon

Date of Stay: May, 2011 - $19.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed here for two nights. The view from our rig is breathtaking. We're sitting nearly lakeside with a clear view across a large frozen lake. We stayed here very early in the season so the water was not available at the sites yet. The Wi-Fi access is very good. The food in the resort restaurant is good with ample portions and the place is very quiet. We'd be happy to stay here again. We camped at Yukon Motel & Lakeshore Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Coal River Lodge & RV, Coal River, British Columbia

Date of Stay: May, 2011 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

This is a place to stop for a night to get off the road. The number of RV sites is actually 12 and with a "big rig", we took up "two" of their sites because the sites are very, very small. The electric hook-up is 110, 20A(?) with no 30A or 50A available. My low rating is mainly because of the loud sound of a generator or pump that is running in the building next to the RV parking area all night. The nightly rate is also high for this area with nothing to account for paying a higher price. The Wi-Fi was not in service yet at the time of our visit. The people running the park are very friendly! We camped at Coal River Lodge & RV in a Fifth Wheel.

Gordon Howe Campground, Saskatoon, Saskatchewan

Date of Stay: April, 2011 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

We found out about this park from the Woodall's book and the directions given were a bit sketchy to us as we're unfamiliar with the roads and the road signs of Canada. In our confusion, we ended up driving our "big rig" right through the middle of downtown Saskatoon. While this doesn't affect my overall rating of the park, it is something that would affect my consideration of choosing to stay here as I find it rather scary to drive through a large city during rush hour traffic. Fortunately, the park and the staff here are well worth the effort if you're looking for a place to get off the road for more than a day. Each campsite is surrounded with bushes to give it a unique kind of privacy. We were here too early in the Spring to see the benefit of this arrangement, but it's clear that the sites are laid out for maximum privacy. There are no sewers, only a dump station on the way out and a service is available on weekdays to pump out your tanks for an extra fee if needed. I would definitely plan to stay here again if I'm ever in this area although I would plan my arrival more carefully the next time. We camped at Gordon Howe Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Catfish Round-Up RV Park, Seminole, Oklahoma

Date of Stay: April, 2011 - $18.00
Overall Rating:

This is our second visit to this park. We stayed here for a week, the same time, last year. The pond at the rear of the property has been filled in for some other purpose (perhaps a garden or more lawn?) The concrete pads are level and adequate for our fifth wheel, but there isn't sufficient space for parking our pick-up. This is a basic, affordable place to get off the road for a while. We camped at Catfish Round-Up RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Hoover RV Park, Hoover, Alabama

Date of Stay: April, 2011 - $32.00
Overall Rating:

As the previous review noted, this is nothing more than a glorified RV parking lot. The hook-ups are "top of the line" and better than anything I've ever seen before. Everything is fully integrated into a fancy tower except the sewer connection which is built into the concrete "island". The entire parking area is in a mountainous area so many of the sites aren't level. However, during our stay there were plenty of sites available and as we were also inundated with lots of rain, the run-off was a benefit. One interesting feature (besides the nearby baseball stadium) was a hiking trail that was well-marked and clearly maintained that led down the back side of the mountain to the Cahaba River. It's well worth exploring. As the previous reviewer noted, this is a good place to stop to get off the road for one or two nights, but the price seems a little high to me. We camped at Hoover RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Atlanta South RV Resort , Mcdonough, Georgia

Date of Stay: December, 2010 - $36.00
Overall Rating:

We stopped here mainly to get off the road for a while and to re-evaluate our travel plans considering the weather. Didn't have a chance to check the reviews here first. BIG MISTAKE! The previous reviews summed up the condition of this place very accurately. The park is not being kept clean or maintained. It is packed with rigs and parked vehicles that infringe on the roadways. Traffic within the park is fast and noisy and goes on all the time. The sound of traffic on nearby I-75 is constant. We will not stop here again. We camped at Atlanta South RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Safe Harbor RV Park, Riverside, Alabama

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

We spent two weeks at this park with a space that looked right out over the lake. The rate for one week was $110 (inclusive). On the other side of the lake was Hwy. 20, but the noise of traffic was barely audible. The spaces are narrow, but adequate and the grassy areas are all clean and well-maintained. When we called to make a reservation, we were warmly welcomed by a very friendly man. The office is not staffed for much of the day, but the phone was always answered promptly. The only reason that we didn't rate this park higher is the condition of the entrances from the main road and the main access road within the park. The asphalt approaches from the main road are steep and broken up with large potholes and jagged edges. This was not only a problem when bringing our Big Horn in and out, it was also annoying just driving in and out with our pick-up truck. Despite the problems with the entrances, we would happily stay here again and would recommend this park to our friends. We hope that they will be able to get this fixed before our next stay in AL. We camped at Safe Harbor RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Catfish Round-Up RV Park, Seminole, Oklahoma

Date of Stay: March, 2010 - $16.00
Overall Rating:

This park is delightful. We stayed here for a week in a spot right next to the little fishing pond. There were geese, ducks, rabbits and a deer in a fenced in area near the pond. The concrete pads are level and the owners laid fresh gravel over the roads during our stay. The park is quiet, clean and has a very pleasant atmosphere. Each site has a picnic table and trash cans are accessible. We would stay here again. We camped at Catfish Round-Up RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
