Lakewood RV Resort (55+ park), Flat Rock, North Carolina

Date of Stay: November, 2018 - $60.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed at this park last year and paid $45 with our Good Sam discount. To our surprise this year's rate was increased to $66 and with our labeled 10% Good Sam discount we paid $60. The folks here are no doubt mathematically challenged since a correct discount would have reduced the rate to $59.40. The site we stayed in is labeled a 'Premium Site', which consists of a gravel site, cement pad, picnic table, WiFi, cable, and overhanging trees that would not accommodate our satellite dish. These amenities are offered at most parks as 'Standard'. The cable was functional but the channel selections are of questionable interest to most campers. The cable package must be the lowest fee available since there was no HGTV, HLN, CNN or FOX News and the quality was poor. If you like the shopping channels, there are four listed. If you like religious feeds, you've come to the right place. If you enjoy watching the cable electronic transmission data there are three channels that you can become fixated on. The prices for an overnight stay in this facility are totally out of line for what's offered. The good news is that the park is clean and quiet.Don't camp here in the rain. Our patio flooded with three inches of standing water, which made getting in and out of the RV challenging to stay dry. The lower part of the park where we stayed is in a 100 year flood plain so I'm happy we only had a half inch of rain to contend with. The staff is friendly but they need to get in an RV and tour the country to see what other parks are offering as an equivalent at a substantially lower rate. We camped at Lakewood RV Resort (55+ park) in a Motorhome.

Myrtle Beach Travel Park, Myrtle Beach, South Carolina

Date of Stay: November, 2018 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

Initial impressions of RV parks are similar to those when meeting new people. Certain things cause one to form a quick opinion. In the case of this park, our impression was highly negative since before we even finished setting up we had to pick up six piles of cat manure. Never park anywhere near the park models in this facility! There are feral cats running everywhere. We saw eight at one time near our rig. Since this park is all sand, the cats use the area as one giant litter box. Every morning the process starts over again since there are so many cats running loose. The entire area around our site is like a minefield of cat crap. This park has very strict rules for dog owners but when I notified the park in writing of my dissatisfaction with the cats there was absolutely no response from management. Residents in the park models feed them every day and there was no evidence of any trapping and removal activity. It's difficult if not impossible to keep from tracking cat waste into the RV. There's no doubt that if I had let my dogs run loose and not pickup after them I would have been contacted and maybe asked to leave the park. Serious double standard here. Cable was defective and never fixed during our two week stay. Had to back out because of table shelter and very narrow road in front. While there are several positives things we could say about this park, we will forego these comments since we will not be returning. There are better parks in the area with cement pads, nicer facilities and better amenities in the Myrtle Beach area. We camped at Myrtle Beach Travel Park in a Motorhome.

Magnolia RV Park and Campground, Kinards, South Carolina

Date of Stay: November, 2018 - $34.00
Overall Rating:

The park has easy access from the Interstate and the directions and signs to find the park were good. The staff was friendly and they escort to your site. Our site was level with what appeared to be fresh gravel and was sufficiently long for our toad. The only suggestion we could make is to improve the access roads in the park with more gravel to smooth them out a bit. We would return if our plans bring us back this way. We camped at Magnolia RV Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

Fernbrook RV Park, Longview, Texas

Date of Stay: January, 2017 - $41.00
Overall Rating:

Very nice park with paved roads and paved sites. Staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful. There is a small dog run but a large open field adjacent to the park that can be used for pet exercise. Verizon reception was good and the park has good WiFi. Cable is also included in the rate. Water quality is very good. The park has a high percentage of permanent residents but all of the sites were very orderly and clean. We will definitely stay here again at some point. We camped at Fernbrook RV Park in a Motorhome.

Lake Tom Bailey Campground, Toomsuba, Mississippi

Date of Stay: January, 2017 - $18.00
Overall Rating:

After reading some of the more positive reviews we decided to give the park a try. As soon as we pulled into the park we knew we had made a mistake. We were in a motor home towing a vehicle. The pot holes and mud holes in the main road were so deep the RV rocked back and forth as we made our way through the campground. In all fairness there had been considerable rain in the area a few days before we got there but the road bed has no gravel and is all mud. As we drove the loop looking for a site we were afraid that we might get stuck in the mud. The sites had standing water and no gravel. We decided quickly that we didn't want to navigate the water and mud, especially since we had two dogs that needed to be walked. Our first visit was disappointing to say the least. The lake looked nice and the sites are large and open. We camped at Lake Tom Bailey Campground in a Motorhome.

Grand Junction KOA, Grand Junction, Colorado

Date of Stay: September, 2015 - $38.00
Overall Rating:

Nice level sites with smooth gravel base. Very clean park. Rating would be higher except for the high road noise for sites at the front of the park. Would stay there again on our next trip. We camped at Grand Junction KOA in a Motorhome.

Moab KOA, Moab, Utah

Date of Stay: September, 2015 - $50.00
Overall Rating:

There are several problems here both with layout and policies. When the daily fee for camping exceeds $50 per night one would expect a reasonably level campsite. Not the case here. We couldn't level our 39' Class A motor home without taking the front wheels off the ground, which is never a good idea. All of the sites in the section where we stayed all sloped downhill. Because of the abundance of rocks in this area someone thought placing large stones to delineate the site and on nearly every turning radius was a good idea. This is clearly a recipe for disaster as we've seen in other parks. While we were careful to avoid a problem (we had to move a large rock to extend one of our slides and move stones to walk around the camper) one can only imagine the damage or accidents that will occur over time at night when visibility is restricted. The dump station is located near the main entrance of the park coming in - not going out - which requires campers to circle the park a second time to exit. Whoever designed this park had very little experience in RV park design, especially as it relates to big rigs that are towing.

This park has a policy of charging $10 for an early check in, which is clear on the reservation confirmation. Checkout is 11 A.M. and check-in is 1 P.M. We arrived at 10:30 A.M. Our site was still occupied when we arrived, which we accepted and understood could be the case since we arrived early. However, we were told we couldn't even park anywhere on the property until 1 P.M., which was check-in time. There were plenty of empty sites where we could have parked the RV without using any utilities but the office staff stated that the owner's policies didn't permit us to stay in the park. We drove a quarter of a mile down the road and parked for two and one half hours until the 1 P.M. check-in time. All of the above issues point to this park being a low value stay and deserving of the low rating. We won't be back. We camped at Moab KOA in a Motorhome.
