Prince of Tucson RV Park, Tucson, Arizona

Date of Stay: December, 2013 - $29.00
Overall Rating:

This park's best feature was their convenience to downtown Tucson. It's in a location that is hard to get to right now due to construction and it's right next to the freeway, close to a train so it's a bit noisy. The people who checked us in were very friendly, our rate reflects the discount they gave to artists participating in the 4th Avenue Fair. They are right next to a walking / biking trail. Their Tengo Internet was very slow and we gave up using it after the first hour and used our JetPack. We did appreciate the hot tub each evening, we were working and on our feet all day so that was a nice convenience. Our biggest issue with this park was the actual site. Due to a palm tree on one side and the placement of the water / electric pedestal and the location of our 4 slides, we had to have our 5th wheel positioned very precisely which put our truck's front wheels on the curb. When it came time to hitch / un-hitch the curb and the very thick gravel in the site made it very difficult. If we stay here again, I would request a site without trees, one that hadn't just been graveled with 6 inches of gravel and one of the sites that wasn't in the front row with the weird curb issue. In the unhitching process we did end up with our blocks / landing gear slipping in the gravel a bit which caused the hitch to damage our almost new toolbox that sits between the hitch and the tailgate, so we weren't happy about that at all. We camped at Prince of Tucson RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Palm Gardens (55+ park), Mesa, Arizona

Date of Stay: December, 2013 - $23.00
Overall Rating:

Clean park, mostly a manufactured home park vs. an RV park. RV sites seemed to be primarily occupied by long term residents. Very clean and neat. Price reflects Passport America discount for a week, plus 2 days at the regular rate. WiFi did not work in our section of the park. Verizon JetPack worked well. We were put in a site between 2 single wide trailers; very quiet location, much quieter than the RV section that was close to a busy street. Laundry facilities were about the cleanest we've seen at any RV park with plenty of machines and reasonable prices. We camped at Palm Gardens (55+ park) in a Fifth Wheel.

Usery Mountain Regional Park, Mesa, Arizona

Date of Stay: November, 2013 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

Nice location, close enough to Mesa to shop / run errands but far enough away to not feel like you were in town. Verizon connectivity was a bit slow, but reasonable. Huge sites, nice hiking, biking trails in the park. Friendly camp hosts, and a relatively good experience. Only downside was the Firing range close by, noise was bothersome at times, seemed never ending on the weekends. Some noise from Hwy 202 but wasn't too bad most of the time. We camped at Usery Mountain Regional Park in a Fifth Wheel.

McDowell Mountain Regional Park, Scottsdale, Arizona

Date of Stay: November, 2013 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

We fell in love with this park, first place we've ever camped in AZ and we'll be back. Huge sites, great connectivity on our Verizon card, lots of hiking trails, very quiet location, beautiful weather and friendly camp hosts. Very close to the town of Fountain Hills, diesel was a bit expensive in that town so fuel up before you arrive. We camped at McDowell Mountain Regional Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Pelican Point RV Park, Half Moon Bay, California

Date of Stay: October, 2013 - $43.00
Overall Rating:

Sites had a little more distance than many of the RV parks we've stayed in. Backing in due to a pole and where the hook ups were located took longer than usual. Friendly / helpful staff. We were here during the Pumpkin Festival, one of the busiest times of the fall for this area and the park was relatively full, but very quiet. WiFi was slow, Verizon worked well. When the fog lifted we had a nice view of the sunset out the back window of our RV. We camped at Pelican Point RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

The Fair Park RV - Alameda County Fairgrounds, Pleasanton, California

Date of Stay: October, 2013 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

As other reviewers have noted, very tight sites, little room between sites. Had to have the person across from us move his truck to be able to back in. Basically a gravel parking lot with hook-ups. Good access to grocery stores and shopping in the area. WiFi was iffy at times, good Verizon signal. Laundry facilities inadequate for a park with this many short - medium term residents, several people were staying for a 2-6 month term. 4 washers (2 out of order), 3 dryers and very expensive to use. We will avoid staying here again if at all possible. We camped at The Fair Park RV - Alameda County Fairgrounds in a Fifth Wheel.

Dos Reis Regional Park, Lathrop, California

Date of Stay: October, 2013 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

Easy access off I-5, very quiet during the week with good spacing between sites. River is just on the other side of the levee with a good walking trail on top of the levee. Good connectivity for Verizon MiFi. Reasonably priced park with FHU, very unusual for California. We camped at Dos Reis Regional Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Desert Rose RV Park, Fernley, Nevada

Date of Stay: September, 2013 - $19.00
Overall Rating:

Rate reflects Passport America. Very quiet RV park, further off the Interstate than other campgrounds. Nice, helpful office staff. We were only here for one night, very easy pull-through site for a one night stay. Not sure I would want to be here long term, sites are closer than we prefer, but we usually camp at state or county parks. Good choice for an enroute stopover. We camped at Desert Rose RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Dutch Flat RV Resort, Dutch Flat, California

Date of Stay: September, 2013 - $17.00
Overall Rating:

At first we wondered what we were getting into, the top row of campers are all permanent residents, but once you start down the hill, it's much more pleasant. The outer circle are all long term / summer residents with pull thru spots in the center. Very quiet, close to the freeway, but noise was not too bad. Easy place to get to if you follow the directions on the website, not sure where MapQuest was trying to send us. One of the other long term residents gave us the Wi-Fi code, worked very well here, just not provided by the campground host. Not a lot to do in the area, closest laundry and shopping were at least 10 miles down the Interstate. Given the price, it was a pleasant place to stay for a few days. We camped at Dutch Flat RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Utah Lake State Park, Provo, Utah

Date of Stay: September, 2013 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

As others have mentioned, the bugs here can be pretty intense. We enjoyed our stay here. The sites are well spaced, and it was very quiet during the week. Lots of opportunities for boating and water activities. Our Verizon MiFi has worked well here. The scenery in this campground is outstanding with the lake and mountains. We would stay here again. We camped at Utah Lake State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Boulder County Fairgrounds, Longmont, Colorado

Date of Stay: September, 2013 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

Sites are very close together, luckily most of the time we were there the park wasn't full. We were here for 13 nights due to needing to get some work done on our truck. Nice feature is that this park is within easy walking / biking distance of the St. Vrain Greenway trail for recreational opportunities. Weekends are busier with all the activities at the Fairgrounds, but overall it's pretty quiet at this park. Our Verizon MiFi worked well in the park. We took advantage of the many, many shopping opportunities to restock and refurbish a few items in our rig. We'd rather stay at a state park or a park with a little more room between sites, but overall our stay here was okay and was a reasonable choice given that we had to be in the area for the work on our truck. We camped at Boulder County Fairgrounds in a Fifth Wheel.

St. Vrain State Park, Longmont, Colorado

Date of Stay: September, 2013 - $26.00
Overall Rating:

We enjoyed our stay here. We were very surprised by the day use fee that is NOT included in your camp fees which is different than most of the other state parks we have been in. Since we still had 2 vehicles, at $7/vehicle per night we ended up paying $40/night with full hook ups. We still enjoyed our stay, but thought it was a bit pricey. The noise from the Interstate didn't bother us too much, but we have a "white noise" device that we use when sleeping. We enjoyed all the walking trails within the park and the extensive water fowl. We enjoyed our stay and would stay again. We had good reception on our Verizon MiFi device. We camped at St. Vrain State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a city park that accepts donations. We were only here one night en route, but it was very quiet, easy to get into and we were happy to use the 50 amp hookups they had available. We camped at Lewis Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Happy Holiday Resort, Rapid City, South Dakota

Date of Stay: August, 2013 - $10.00
Overall Rating:

We were here for almost 2 weeks. The manager and work campers were all really friendly and very helpful. We ended up staying a week longer than planned due to needing a repair service. They were great about letting us move our food into the cooler in the office / gift shop while the fridge was being repaired. Our rate reflected the "friend and family" rate that the work campers could offer to friends. This is a nice, older park with lots of trees. Nice covered picnic tables between each site. Several other reviews mentioned issues with the trees. It's a little tight to maneuver with a large rig, but definitely do-able. I would not want to be here (or anywhere in the Black Hills ) during Sturgis Rally, but while we were here we didn't see any issues with people having trouble getting into or out of their sites. Again, the work campers were great at guiding people in and providing advice and help. We camped at Happy Holiday Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Deer Park Campground, Buffalo, Wyoming

Date of Stay: August, 2013 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

Nice park with very friendly staff and work campers. We were here for a week and found it to be pleasant. Their Wi-Fi was "okay", they had several connections, however, sometimes they were a little slow. We saw a lot of people passing through on their way to and from the Sturgis Rally and were really happy to not be any closer to South Dakota. Sites were a little closer than we prefer, but much better than many of the commercial campgrounds. We camped at Deer Park Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
