Fayetteville RV Resort (formerly Fayetteville / Wade KOA), Wade, North Carolina

Date of Stay: January, 2013 - $47.00
Overall Rating:

Very well kept park, friendly owners, very easy access with larger RV, convenient to I95 yet no traffic noise. Pricey for an overnight stop. Unless we found something else cheaper in the area we would stay again. We camped at Fayetteville RV Resort (formerly Fayetteville / Wade KOA) in a Fifth Wheel.

Fort Chiswell RV Park, Max Meadows, Virginia

Date of Stay: November, 2012 - $33.00
Overall Rating:

Site was deceivingly unlevel towards the front, fifth wheel could not stay connected to the truck, but motorhomes would probably be OK without having to unhook towed vehicles. Noticed others were assigned level sites, some with concrete pads. Close to the highway, very easy access to and in the park with our larger RV. Quiet at night. Good for an overnight stop, albeit a bit pricey for the off-season and no amenities other than full hookups, but it is convenient to I-81 and I-77. We would stay again as an overnight stop. We camped at Fort Chiswell RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

River Plantation RV Park, Sevierville, Tennessee

Date of Stay: November, 2012 - $36.00
Overall Rating:

A short drive from Gatlinburg and entrance to the Smokies, but close to Pigeon Forge attractions and restaurants. Quiet at night. Easy access to and in the park with our larger RV. We will definitely return to this park. We camped at River Plantation RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Carrabelle Beach RV Resort, Carrabelle, Florida

Date of Stay: October, 2012 - $34.00
Overall Rating:

Super nice office staff and manager. Water pressure was low but bearable. Easy access to the park with our larger RV but turns are tight at the end of each row and there was very little room to park our tow vehicle at the sites. Biting flies were terrible in the area for the week we stayed. Rate reflects a week's stay. We would return. We camped at Carrabelle Beach RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Very nice, well maintained, nicely landscaped, facilities all looked relatively new, friendly staff. Very quiet at night, no traffic or other extemporaneous noise. Slept very good here. Super easy access to and in the park with our larger RV. We really enjoyed our stay here and would very much look forward to coming back to stay again.

Ameristar Vicksburg RV Park, Vicksburg, Mississippi

Date of Stay: October, 2012 - $26.00
Overall Rating:

Rate reflects weekly stay / discount. No-frills type park; basically a full hook-up parking lot, asphalt roads and each pull-through site / pad is concrete. Most are level; the ones that aren't are deceptively unlevel. Active train tracks and highway nearby, but at least the trains don't sound their horns, so you just hear them rumbling past. Not great, not bad, but certainly far better than any of the other parks in the area. We would stay here again. We camped at Ameristar Vicksburg RV Park in a Motorhome.

Mill Creek Ranch RV & Cottage Resort, Canton, Texas

Date of Stay: October, 2012 - $36.00
Overall Rating:

Beautiful park with grounds that are immaculately maintained, just far enough away from the highway for a very quiet night's sleep. Two pools and a hot tub, fanciest clubhouse I have ever seen in an RV park, very nice staff, and all for a fair price. Very easy access to and in the park with our extra large RV. This park is great for an overnight or as a destination in and of itself. One of the nicest parks we have ever stayed at. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Mill Creek Ranch RV & Cottage Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Ajax Country Livin' RV Park at I-49, Marthaville, Louisiana

Date of Stay: October, 2012 - $17.00
Overall Rating:

I couldn't have been in the same park that prior reviewer's were, rating this park with 8's and 9's seems extremely generous to me, if not completely irrational. This park is a small group of RV spaces on the side of a small grassy hill with some gravel sprinkled about the drives and pull-through site areas, but mostly grass. By strictest definition the "lake" is more a small Louisiana swamp, complete with its own resident alligator. The internet / Wi-Fi is ridiculously slow even with only five other RV's in the park, but given the area it is probably the best that they have access to. Bathrooms not very impressive and had a terrible smell in both. Price paid is after Passport America discount - cash or check only. Far from the highway, but there was continuous truck noise from the logging / lumber operation across the street. Trucks and buzz saws started early in the evening and lasted all night until we left in the morning. As if the lumber operation didn't make it hard enough to sleep, the dumpster was emptied at exactly 3:58 am by one of those big diesel trash trucks that lifts the dumpster up and you can hear the lids slam as it is emptied - now I know why the owners put it at the far end of the park (such as it is in this tiny park) away from their home. Choices are few and far between in this area, but if traveling through here again I would plan my route so as to stop short or go further down the road to avoid staying here again. We camped at Ajax Country Livin' RV Park at I-49 in a Fifth Wheel.

Tallahassee RV Park, Tallahassee, Florida

Date of Stay: October, 2012 - $38.00
Overall Rating:

This park is basically a residential home with about a dozen RV sites in the front yard and a very long back yard with a central drive straight through to the back and a row of RV sites on each side. Sites are pull through's and the park and sites were easy to negotiate with our larger RV, although park road was very rough; they need new blacktop very badly. Very nicely kept and landscaped around the house and pool, which was spotlessly clean albeit very small for a campground, approximately 15' wide by 28' long. Nice little community room and the bathrooms and laundry room were clean and well kept. Far enough from Interstate 10 and access road to make for no highway noise. Internet was slow and flaky, basically unusable. The sites were very close together and your only view was directly into the side of the RV sitting beside you. I expect to be packed in like a sardine in the middle of winter in South Florida, not in Tallahassee. Very nice woman in the office. I thought it was expensive for the amenities and lack of view / small site sizes. Price given is after Good Sam discount. This park is fine for an overnight stay but if in the area for longer I would probably stay elsewhere. We camped at Tallahassee RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Johnny's RV Resort, Theodore, Alabama

Date of Stay: October, 2012 - $17.00
Overall Rating:

It is outright lying to call this a resort. Price paid were Passport America and I don't think it was even worth that. Manager who checked us in could not have been nicer, she was super helpful and friendly. The park is nearly filled with older RV's and year-round residents, some of whom are up pretty early warming up their trucks and leaving for work. Park was just OK for big rig access if you go slowly, follow the given directions, and watch for low hanging branches. Utilities worked fine, except for Internet which was unusably slow and flaky. I would have rated this park another point or so higher if it would have been quiet at night and I could have gotten a good night's sleep but there are train tracks running alongside this park and trains run regularly, even at night. They blow their horn on each pass by the park. The second train of the night was loaded so heavy it actually shook my large RV as it passed by and blew its horn waking me up for the second time that morning. This woke me up for the third time after the earlier train and the workers warming their trucks and leaving for work. I was awake the morning we stayed more than I was asleep. We would not stay again. We camped at Johnny's RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Sweetwater / I-75 / Exit 62 KOA, Sweetwater, Tennessee

Date of Stay: September, 2012 - $39.00
Overall Rating:

A well kept park that looks like it would be nice for families during the summer season; nice playground, swimming pool, bounce pillow, etc. Stayed in the fall as an overnight stop and was disappointing with value received for the price we paid. The price we paid reflects a 50 amp electric / water only hookups; the price for a site including sewer is even more! Pool was closed, game room was locked, and bounce pillow was put away. Our pull through site was unlevel front to back, and very short (they asked me when reserving and arriving about the length of my RV), had to back the truck up with tailgate down under front of fifth wheel to keep from sticking out into roadway in front. I was parked just off the roadway in the back and worried every time a vehicle passed that they might clip the rear of our RV. Very narrow country lane getting to the park, and the entrance is on a BAD turn with zero visibility; make sure you are using the hanging mirror to keep from colliding with oncoming traffic, although to their benefit there appears to be little traffic. Altogether a very pricey overnight stay. We would not stay again and would look for something more reasonably priced next time we were in or passing through the area. We camped at Sweetwater / I-75 / Exit 62 KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Whittington Woods Campground, Whittington, Illinois

Date of Stay: September, 2012 - $32.00
Overall Rating:

Used this park as a stopover for one night. Shortly after arriving and setting up my wife asked why we weren't staying longer; this is a nice park with very nice owners whose hard work and improvements to this park is obvious. Very nicely landscaped throughout and all aspects of the park are new or very well cared for and kept. This park well deserves the good ratings it gets. Downsides were very few for us (1) no cable and no chance of getting satellite reception, and (2) pull through were very close together but with only a few campers staying they spaced us apart so it was never an issue. If pull through beside us was occupied we probably could not have put out our awning. Easy access from the highway and maneuvering in and out of the park was easy in our larger RV. Quiet at night. Utilities all worked well. Overall a great experience. We would definitely stay here again if in the area. We camped at Whittington Woods Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Tom Sawyer's Mississippi River Park, West Memphis, Arkansas

Date of Stay: September, 2012 - $34.00
Overall Rating:

I have been excited about staying at this park since we got our RV. Everyone speaks so well of the park and it gets rated so high I was excited when our travels finally brought us to the area. Although it was overall a nice experience, several factors left me disappointed. Getting to the RV park was easy IF you follow the directions on their website! If not, you can find yourself in some dicey neighborhoods in West Memphis; don't trust your GPS system! Maneuvering in the park was easy in our larger size RV. Utilities all functioned well and the bathhouses and laundry building, although dated (OK, old and not very nice) were kept reasonably clean. The laundry building contained a half dozen brand new washer and dryers (fancy and expensive high-end units) that are available for patrons to use for free! I suspect the buildings are regularly victimized by regular Mississippi River floods. Super nice office staff checked us in and escorted us to our site. Although the River was at record low levels (lowest level in more than 50 years according to some barge captains) it was enjoyable watching the barges passing by...for a while. After several barges passed by one looked like another and I didn't find it particularly interesting. Grounds were kept nice and there are walking paths around the park. Overall there is a rather dumpy feel to the park (again, not the owner's fault, but a result of semi-regular flooding) and it was difficult getting a good nights sleep due to nearby trains and jets / a flight path that must run right over the park, several loud planes flew overhead very early every morning. There was also a rather odd smell in the air throughout the park, and everywhere in the West Memphis area during our stay. Satellite reception was not a problem and the fifth wheel sites at the River allowed for a nice view of the Mississippi out the rear window. We would stay here again if in the area, but not a park I would go out of my way to stay at. We camped at Tom Sawyer's Mississippi River Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Angola / Hogback Lake KOA, Angola, Indiana

Date of Stay: September, 2012 - $33.00
Overall Rating:

Adequate for an overnight stop, mostly a park for seasonals with about 20 +/- transient pull through sites in front of park. Utilities worked well and no tress to block satellite reception. Nice playgrounds in this park and everything seems to be well kept. Camp store is better than most, never looked at bath houses or laundry. When calling for a reservation they tried to book me into a lake front site but I instead requested a pull through in front; after walking the park in the evening it was apparent I would have never fit my larger RV into any of the short lakefront sites. No pool, but there is a beach / swimming area at the lake, but it's quite a walk from the transient area. Not sure I understand why there was only about five RV's staying in the transient area, yet we had a neighbor directly beside us; not sure why we weren't spread out a bit more. Nearby rental cabin had a big dog tied on a short leash to the front porch who barked at everything. Most other dogs in the park ran free and I was particularly unimpressed with the dog $&*+ that was left on my site and adjacent playground areas. Gross. I was going to complain but then I saw that one of the dogs running loose was the owner's (or at least whoever lives on the only house on the campground property). Pet friendly is one thing, allowing dogs to run loose off leash in the park and owner's not cleaning up after them is another. Next time in the area I will look for a park I don't have to deal with the dog issues. If you like barking dogs and stepping in dog $&*+ this is the place for you. We camped at Angola / Hogback Lake KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

The Vineyards, Grapevine, Texas

Date of Stay: September, 2012 - $60.00
Overall Rating:

This is, without a doubt, the nicest place to stay in the Dallas area, if not the state of Texas. In most ways this was the nicest park we have stayed at to date. It wasn't cheap, but this is a classic example of getting what you pay for. Our rate reflects Good Sam rate for a Gold site overlooking the bay. Beautiful site, super nice deck, concrete patio and picnic table, regular schedule of activities, close to Dallas metro area. No way to avoid Dallas highway traffic to get here. Once at the park, it is truly an oasis, albeit one in which you can here the air traffic regularly throughout the day. Great paved drives with level concrete sites. Utilities worked well and satellite access would be good from majority of sites. Park has a small beach, kayak rentals, golf cart rentals, a small but nice camp store, and a mulch walking trail. This is an excellent park that we would gladly stay at again. This park would be great as an overnight stay, for a stay while visiting the area, or as a destination in and of itself. We camped at The Vineyards in a Motorhome.
