Appalachian Campground, Hiawassee, Georgia

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

Small no frills campground. Sites are tight with creek running behind them. Lots of highway noise that slows down at night but doesn't stop. No over the air tv and spotty satellite with the tree cover. Coming through the gate is very tight, had to remove their mailbox to get out of the park. The park host is awesome. Very friendly, makes sure all is ok with your stay. We left a day early and he gave us a nights pay back. He said we're not a big time park, so good service will get you to come back. If in the area again we will be back We camped at Appalachian Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Rio Chama RV Park, Chama, New Mexico

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

Nice campground with plenty of shade. Walking distance to the train station. Nice sites along the river but set up mostly for motorhomes. No laundry but one just down the street. Train passes right by the campground in the morning and evening. Deer walk through the campground regularly. We camped at Rio Chama RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Timberlake Campground & RV, Stevenson, Washington

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

Nice park off the beaten path up in the hills. Very shaded so no satellite or over the air TV. To pull a big rig to the top of the campground 4 wheel drive is needed. Very nice camp host who brought us up a taste of smoked salmon. Washing of rigs was allowed. No washers or dryers. Good ATT service. We stayed here to visit Mt. Hood, Mt. St. Helen and the Columbia River Gorge. We camped at Timberlake Campground & RV in a Fifth Wheel.

Country Corners RV Park and Campground , Caldwell, Idaho

Date of Stay: June, 2019 - $38.00
Overall Rating:

Nice little park not far off the interstate. Caters to full time and permanent campers. Maybe 10 spaces for drop in so make reservation in advance. The low rating is mostly because of no open spaces for overnighters which is why someone would stay here. We camped at Country Corners RV Park and Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Lake End Park Campground, Morgan City, Louisiana

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

Very busy park run by the city. Lots of day user coming in and out of park. It is a city park as well as a campground. The spots we reserved were flooded from recent rains so we had to pick new spots when we got there. Not much to pick from, we ended up with very tight sites. Lots of eagle sightings, the area is known to have one of the largest concentration of bald eagle in Louisiana. We camped at Lake End Park Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Joe Wheeler State Park, Rogersville, Alabama

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

We stopped here for a weekend on our way back home from a fall trip to the north because of the rave of others on this park. The park itself is nice with the lake, marina, golf course, lodge and restaurant but the campground was somewhat of a disappointment. Sites are wooded and set up for privacy but the pads are in poor shape. Mature trees that are braking the pads with the root system. You have to park just right to be able to open your slides and awning, not being able to use the awning. None to little ATT service and wifi. Campground says it has wifi but it doesn't. Over the air TV is spotty and too many trees for satellite. Been to quite a few state parks in Alabama and this one is rated towards the lower end. Think we'll pass on this one next time in the area. We camped at Joe Wheeler State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Terre Haute KOA, Terre Haute, Indiana

Date of Stay: October, 2018 - $75.00
Overall Rating:

I have to say was kind of worried about this place after reading others reviews but was pleasantly surprised after getting here. The super deluxe sites are real nice with full hookups and full concrete pads. It hadn't had much rain so didn't see the flooding others have said. Looks like more gravel has been brought in for roads and pads. Little café that served breakfast in the morning and meals in the evenings. Nice, friendly staff. It's rated as a KOA Journey but we think it's a step above. Little tricky getting here off the interstate but our GPS worked just fine. We camped at Terre Haute KOA in a Fifth Wheel.
