White River Campground, Cicero, Indiana

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

This is a highly rated campground run by the local county. It's in a lovely tree lined area near the river. We were really looking forward to staying here. BUT, on a nice early fall weekend it's a disappointment. There are two issues: 1) It's JAMMED with people, cars, dogs running loose, 3 year olds on bikes and large family gatherings spread out all over every available blade of grass. That's OK, but when the sites are really tight it's uncomfortable. Next to our site is what appears to be a family reunion. They've rented 7 or 8 sites and have set up a large kitchen, gathering place and parked 12- vehicles that I can count. There must be 35 people next to us.

The 2nd issue is one of the charms of the place - the River. It's flooded through here and everything is drenched, muddy and wet. We're here on a dryish day - but we had to move from our reserved site because it was under water with no way into our out of the RV without wading water or going through deep mud.

I'm guessing if you came here in the middle of the week it would be almost empty and pretty easy to find a nice site to enjoy.

Looking at the campgrounds near this spot, I don't see any better place. So, maybe this is the best on the northeast side of Indy?? We camped at White River Campground in a Motorhome.

Cedarbrook RV Park & Campgrounds, Mulberry Grove, Illinois

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $32.00
Overall Rating:

Where do the high ratings for this RV Park come from? When we pulled in here my Wife said, "Wow, they sure hired a good photographer for their website." The photos on the website are real, but they look so much better than the place does in real life. This is a campground in a rural setting a mile off of a major interstate that has 90% residents and 10% overnighters.

It would not be possible for us to describe this CG as a nice place and good value. Perhaps, it's best described as adequate or maybe serviceable.

Some examples of the issues here would be the subpar roads within the park. There are many "tight turn" signs and the trees lining the entrance roads are all scared from past scrapes with RVs. Just walking into the CG office gives you a feeling you've chosen the wrong CG for the night. You'll also find slapdash construction of plywood structures (multiple such structures) that give a decidedly shoddy appearance to the place. This includes bath houses with only one very old and well-used toilet and toilet/shower stalls made of plywood. Oddly the stalls had doors that were only ~20" or so wide.

After having stayed here we have no idea how it got rated as highly as it has but we can't agree with them. We camped at Cedarbrook RV Park & Campgrounds in a Motorhome.

Coachlight RV Park, Carthage, Missouri

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $32.00
Overall Rating:

Some people would rate this CG pretty highly. But we feel that any successful campground MUST include a Bath/shower option. We failed to notice this campground didn't have one when we booked our stay here. Surprise! It was nice enough otherwise - not a 9+ rating that it has. But a solid 7.5. But without any bathroom I'm rating it a 6.5 with a caution.

The owners here seem to have convinced themselves it doesn't matter. But it does to a certain group of campers. Why do you think that bathrooms and cleanliness are so important in other reviews? Yeah, it matters.

They had a patio - but no table of any kind. And the other campers are very close by.

If you're getting work done at Coachlight RV - it's the perfect location. We camped at Coachlight RV Park in a Motorhome.

Durant / Choctaw Casino KOA, Durant, Oklahoma

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $34.00
Overall Rating:

Great KOA! Really. If every KOA was like this one, they would be preferred by everyone country-wide. We loved our site - concrete pad, grass, shrubs, patio table with an umbrella no less. Check in was great. And, the bathrooms? Top Notch. There's a pool, but we didn't use it. If I had to complain about anything it's that the dog park (there are two side by side) is too small. Everything else was done well and both looked and worked good. A+++ We camped at Durant / Choctaw Casino KOA in a Motorhome.

Surprisingly nice Casino across the street and if you don't feel like walking they'll pick you up at your site and transport you to and from. Even if you don't do Casinos, you should check out the area and stay at this CG.

Red Barn RV Park, Roswell, New Mexico

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $33.00
Overall Rating:

Small RV park just east of Roswell. Shady area with small grassy sites oriented around the property line. Two pull-through sites with a wooden fence gate in front so you can through when you leave.

Small/older buildings could be a former small farm house.

Very nice lady runs the park and does all she can to make the stay pleasant.

WiFi and Cell signals were good.

Small laundry and individual bath/shower rooms (one men's and one women's).

It's just a small quiet RV "park" on a rural road with about 60% of the RVs there staying on a monthly basis. We camped at Red Barn RV Park in a Motorhome.

Hilltop RV Park, Fort Stockton, Texas

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

Not sure where the high ratings come from on this campground. The campground is what passes for dirt in this area - crushed limestone or better known as caliche. It's bright white, sticks to everything and is as barren as a campground can get. I'm not talking about just in the site I'm talking about everywhere in the campground.

There were 2 or 3 other overnighters passing through here the night I stayed and all the rest (maybe 45) were workers, mostly oil filed or related industry workers. So, the morning came early when dozens of diesel trucks all started up to go to work around sun up.

There's a pool with some grass around it. and a small dog park and a long skinny dog "run" and that's the sum total of grass here.

You're right on I-10 on the access road but road noise wasn't a major issue because it's 100 degrees here in the summer and you'll keep all window shades pulled and the AC roaring.

There are two individual men's rooms / women's rooms - all full up all morning long.

WiFi was pretty good here and so was cell coverage.

It was a handy location, but even though I come back this way often I doubt I'd return.

PS. Fort Stockton has about 3-RV parks none of them are "nice." This might be the nicest of the 3, but that's all that can be said about it. We camped at Hilltop RV Park in a Motorhome.

Mountain Views at Rivers Edge RV Resort, Creede, Colorado

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $43.00
Overall Rating:

I spent 4-days here in July 2016 and found this park to be very nice and welcoming. I didn't reserve in advance but called the morning of my arrival. I ended up in the "Resort" section in a site that was for sale but had not been sold. It was a beautiful site with a great view of the mountains, a water feature at the front of the site and a gravel walking trail at the front, as well.

The bathhouse is clean and nice but not up to the standards of the rest of the park. There is only one bathhouse and it's on the "RV Park" side, not the "Resort" side. The Laundry looked big and well laid out. It too is only on the RV Park side.

In reality there isn't much difference between the two sides. But the sites on the Resort side are available for 40-yr lease and are improved with pads, patios, outdoor dining/kitchens etc.

The wifi is pitiful. It drops all the time. I'm typing this in the park and I'll guess that the wifi will drop while writing. You can pay $3 a day to get better Wifi and I should have tried it. I just wasn't sure it would be any better than the free Wifi.

Cell service here is all 3G. My Verizon and ATT hotspots both show 3 bars and 3G service.

The sites are very large but unless you lease a lot for 40-yrs they are simply gravel with a picnic table, but plenty of room for your RV and tow vehicle/toad.

I'll be back that's for sure. It's a solid 8.5 to 9. Especially in this remote part of Colorado. Remote but absolutely beautiful. We camped at Mountain Views at Rivers Edge RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Carlsbad KOA, Carlsbad, New Mexico

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

This KOA is 17 miles north of Carlsbad and set off of the highway by about a mile. It's fairly large and well laid out. Like most KOAs it's gravel sites some with concrete patios and some with covered porch swings, too. In this part of NM there are not a lot of good choices. So, this one is about the best around.

As others have noted they will deliver diner (BBQ, Burgers, Pizza) to your RV. But when they have a crowd staying there you need to get your order in early. We've not arrived early enough the two times we've stayed here to be able to use this service. But other campers said the food was good.

Very nice bathhouses and showers. Two small dog parks next to each other. The Wifi was not very good but Verizon data service was good here.

This part of NM can be VERY hot and even in early June it was 104 the day we camped here last.

If you're traveling from San Antonio to Albuquerque or Santa Fe and need a convenient stopping spot - this is it. We camped at Carlsbad KOA in a Motorhome.

Seminole Canyon State Park, Comstock, Texas

Date of Stay: May, 2016 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

We spent one night here on our way to West Texas. It was a nice surprise. We had a large water/electric pull-through on top of a hill. This made for great views and cool breezes. The real surprise was decent WiFi at our site (we were near a bathhouse where the WiFi antenna was located). Most Texas SPs do without WiFi and we not only had a decent signal but it was fairly speedy. Cell service was very spotty, but a short hike up to the top of the hill and it worked. The night sky here was amazing and other than Highway 90 a few miles in the distance quite quiet too. The bathrooms were a bit old and worn but mostly clean.

We'll be back here next time we're anywhere close. We camped at Seminole Canyon State Park in a Motorhome.

Lake Amistad Reservoir is near by for boating and fishing. But this is wide open Texas scrubby desert so don't wonder off. Also, you can see Mexico from this campground. In fact, as we arrived my cell phone said, "Welcome to Mexico" as it's only a few miles away.

Davis Mountains State Park, Fort Davis, Texas

Date of Stay: March, 2016 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

Davis Mountains SP is in far West Texas outside of Fort Davis. It's about 40 miles south (beautiful drive) from Balmorhea State Park. One of the highest points in Texas and generally a bit cooler than the surrounding West Texas. It's rugged high desert but beautiful in it's own way. There are a number of camping loops - we stayed in full-hookups loop which is all pull-throughs. It's fairly uncommon for a Texas SP to have full hookups available. So, that's really nice.

Lots of ranger programs, hikes, etc., but fairly remote location. One morning the local pet shelter brought out a dozen dogs for campers to walk on a nice morning hike. We know of at least one dog that got a forever home from the exercise.

No WiFi or cell phone service which is a problem if you need to be in touch during your stay. Beautiful CCC-built hotel and restaurant called the Indian Lodge on the site. We spent four relaxing days there early enough in the year so that it wasn't so hot and cooled off at night.

The town of Fort Davis is nearby and has some nice stores and places to eat. All in all a nice place to visit for a few days. We camped at Davis Mountains State Park in a Motorhome.

Tucson / Lazydays KOA, Tucson, Arizona

Date of Stay: January, 2016 - $55.00
Overall Rating:

We spent 2 1/2 weeks here in January and our only regret is we didn't stay longer. We shy away from KOAs... but not this one. It's a great long term RV Resort. The sites are gravel for your RV but there's a nice patio and every site has an asphalt parking spot for your other vehicle. We stay in a deluxe pull thru and these include grass and shrubs to better separate your space. We had a large Olive tree in our space that gave us some shade.

There are two sections of cover spaces - which may sound odd - but the "coverings" are hundreds (thousands?) of solar panels and they are probably 40 or more feet above the ground. There are some openings for some light to get through and the whole arrangement is very attractive. The only issue I could see is that it could be hard to get Satellite reception depending on your rooftop dish location.

Great facilities, super clean and well tended sites, nice people and all around a great place to stay.

One more thing - FREE Citrus! Lemons, Oranges and Grapefruit EVERYWHERE. Free for the picking. At the farmer's market we saw fresh Grapefruit selling for $3 each - but we picked about 1 dozen or more during our stay for free. Everything was ripe, fresh, and delicious. The front desk encourages picking the fruit and folks walk around with a plastic bag and "shop" to their hearts content. We camped at Tucson / Lazydays KOA in a Motorhome.

Hacienda RV Resort, Las Cruces, New Mexico

Date of Stay: January, 2016 - $48.00
Overall Rating:

We spent another couple of days here on our trip west in January. It's still a very nice CG with good sites and even good WiFi - good enough for Netflix even.

But there is one drawback - that may not be a drawback for every camper - and that is that there are not enough bathroom stalls for a park this large. On a recent Sunday morning, when the lobby opens late there were at lest 6 people waiting for access to the only 2 bathroom stalls available. This is something they need to address in a park with nearly 200 sites. We camped at Hacienda RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Destin West RV Resort, Fort Walton Beach, Florida

Date of Stay: October, 2015 - $72.00
Overall Rating:

This is a very nice smaller RV Park on the main road from Fort Walton Beach to Destin, Florida. We were unsure before arriving due to the somewhat spotty reviews. But just look at the place. Great sites with pavers, patios and plenty of landscaping between sites.

The price is high, but the property is located on beautiful Okaloosa Island with the Choctawhatchee Bay on one side and the Atlantic on the other side. Pretty prime real estate - and they take care of the place very well.

The laundry room and bathrooms are awfully small, but it is a smaller RV Park. They are really clean and nicely appointed.

We'll be back even though it's so expensive. Nice people, nice RV sites and good location. If only most other RV parks were as nice as this one.

If you can't get a place in the two very good Florida State Parks in the area - which you can't unless you reserve nearly a year in advance - splurge and stay here. You'll enjoy it. We camped at Destin West RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Wow, what a great State Park. We spent only one night on our way across Florida but it would be worth making a special trip to stay at this park.

Whoever is in charge here is a stickler for details. Everything from the welcome, to the grounds, to the sites to the bathhouses was fantastic.

This is the prototype for how to make a great State Park. Well, worth the 9+ rating. If you are nearby Lake City, Florida make it a point to stop and stay here. We camped at Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center State Park in a Motorhome.

There is a museum, small craft shops, bike rentals and such on the well-kept grounds here. There was a wedding going on the day we were there and everyone was invited to attend. There's not much to the town but with a park this great that's OK.

All month during December they turn the park into a Christmas wonderland and folks drive thru and take hay rides, etc. Seems to be a pretty big deal.

Skidaway Island State Park, Savannah, Georgia

Date of Stay: October, 2015 - $32.00
Overall Rating:

Really a beautiful State Park in a beautiful city. We enjoyed almost everything here except the sub-par bathhouses.

They were clean, but run down and for some reason had no concrete walkways to the bathroom. You had to walk 20' through dirt/mud to get from the road to the door.

Very shady sites. Many of them huge. We had a large pull-thru with full-hookups. Which is unusual for a State Park.

The grounds of the park are lovely and the people were helpful and friendly.

It's sort of big-rig friendly with some very large sites. But it is tight with many large pine trees. And, somewhat dark because of the trees as well. Forget using your satellite here.

Now, if they'd only improve their bathhouses it would be a "9" rated State Park. We camped at Skidaway Island State Park in a Motorhome.
