Tucson / Lazydays KOA, Tucson, Arizona

Date of Stay: February, 2019 - $56.00
Overall Rating:

Surprisingly nice for a KOA, with more of an upscale feel than most of them. Very wide sites, lots of room. Inconvenient location for a long stay, no where to walk in the area and not near anything, but very convenient for a night-before stay if you are going to one of the local places for RV service. Customer service was friendly, if not particularly competent. Laundry is $4.00 a load, but its clean and everything works. Wifi is pitiful, but you can buy faster wifi if you like. Good selection of cable channels. Trash is left at the curb in the morning - and may stay there all morning - yuk! Recycling bins can be obtained from the office at check-in to use during your stay. Of particular note, if you are ever (god forbid) in Tucson in the summertime, they have two rows of spots under giant awnings - this would be great in the summertime, and I haven't seen it in any other park in Tucson. Very noisy at night, with some kind of generator noise running all night. We camped at Tucson / Lazydays KOA in a Motorhome.

Viewpoint RV & Golf Resort (55+ park), Mesa, Arizona

Date of Stay: February, 2019 - $77.00
Overall Rating:

This park has beautiful facilities, but it is extremely large, so its a long haul to any of the facilities and activities. The site itself left a lot to be desired, considering the rate paid. The RV spots are way out in the hinterlands. In the row I was parked in, every site was sloped heavily to the front, and every rig was up on blocks in the front or had wheels off the ground. There is no wifi at the sites, even with an antenna, given the distance to the common area where they have wifi. The rate includes cable, with a fair selection of channels. Parking was a challenge, as they have planted useless non-shade producing trees at the front of every site, cutting the site in two. The guy who came out to help me park backed my passenger side mirror right into the tree. The water setup was very rickety, and located in back of the site (looked like it had been run over at some point). The sewer connection ends up underneath your rig. Garbage collection is once a week, with a garbage can at each site. The one at my site was half filled with garbage when I got there. On the positive side, the site was very large side to side. The customer service was poor in both the reception office and activities office. They put you on hold forever if you call. When I got there, I asked the girl in the reception office about a local business, and she just shrugged her shoulders and said, "I don't know, I don't live here." I asked here about the entry rules for the park, and she said maybe the guy at the gate could tell me. The lady in the activities office was too busy talking to a friend to help me. She threw a book at me and told me all of the activities were listed in there. Both golf courses are great, but the 18 hole course is overbooked on weekdays, and 5 hours rounds are the norm. Not worth the price paid, but for longer stays, the rate goes down, and it might be worth it. We camped at Viewpoint RV & Golf Resort (55+ park) in a Motorhome.

Outdoor Resort Indio, Indio, California

Date of Stay: January, 2019 - $112.00
Overall Rating:

This park is beautifully landscaped and maintained. The site I got was fabulous - privacy hedges on both sides, an upscale patio furniture set and a complete outdoor kitchen (instructions said these can only be used by renters "in season"), deeper and wider than a typical site. There was a fair amount of slope, and I saw this at other sites too. Most sites had all these amenities, but a few did not. It is expensive, but not much more than if you reserve a deluxe site at some other places, and here nearly all the sites are that nice. The customer service was excellent. The permanent residents were not friendly, almost rude. There is no wifi or cable, which is not acceptable when you're paying this much. Also, they do not allow use of satellite TV systems unless they are roof mounted. While most of the place is beautifully landscaped, the pool area has no landscaping at all - looks like they just ran out of money. The rate I paid included the resort fee which, oddly, included use of the golf course but not fitness classes - they were extra. The golf course was a disappointment - not a true par 3, and you can play the whole thing with two or three clubs. It's a shame they didn't just put in a true Par 3 nine hole course, and then use the extra space for some short game practice areas. I doubt I'll return, as I mainly stayed here to play golf, but it is definitely worth it for those who want to pay extra for a really nice site. We camped at Outdoor Resort Indio in a Motorhome.

The Springs at Borrego RV Resort and Golf Course, Borrego Springs, California

Date of Stay: December, 2018 - $56.00
Overall Rating:

Very nice park. Rate is weekly, with electric charge added in. Much nicer than other places I have stayed at this rate. The sites are very wide and everything is impeccably maintained. Service is great. The golf course is only nine holes, but its in great shape, and a fun little course. The pool and spa area are beautiful. Large selection of cable channels included in rate. Verizon is good, wifi very sketchy, but in their defense, they tell you that right up front. Sites are built into a slight hill, so it looks like nearly every site requires some side-to-side leveling. My only real complaint was the place was overrun with dogs (probably because of the really great dog park), and rules about barking and leashes are not really enforced. We camped at The Springs at Borrego RV Resort and Golf Course in a Motorhome.

Pechanga RV Resort & Casino, Temecula, California

Date of Stay: November, 2018 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

Excellent value at the PA rate, which is only valid weekdays. The RV park is very nice and maintained well, with ample sites and a little grass at each site. No picnic table at site. Most of the resort amenities are over at the hotel, but there is a pool and spa at the RV park. Free shuttle to hotel and casino. Very good wifi, good Verizon, fair selection of cable channels. Great options for dining at the casino. Beautiful golf course, though pricey and crowded. However, RV park guests are entitled to use the golf practice facility, including a very large short game area, for free, which is a great bargain. We camped at Pechanga RV Resort & Casino in a Motorhome.

Caliente Springs Resort (55+ park), Desert Hot Springs, California

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

Very nice resort and a good bargain at the PA rate. Its a ways out of town, so mostly a place to come and stay - nothing nearby. That does make it nice and quiet, though. The pool and spa area is beautiful, and the mineral pools are quite nice. I wasn't too crazy about the golf "course," but if you know in advance its just a pitch and putt, you won't be disappointed. The major detractor is that its a seriously windy area. I was lucky that I only have a slide on one side, and the wind was coming from the other side; otherwise, I would have had to put my slide in for much of the stay. The wifi was good, Verizon signal strong, and there is lots of over the air tv. The rate actually includes free cable TV, but you have to get a remote from the office and the set up is a little complicated. They offered to send someone out to my site to set it up, but I declined, as I wouldn't be there that long. The site itself was sand, mostly level, and very easy to back into. However, I saw many sites there that would have presented some back in challenges, and that were very unlevel. If you have the opportunity when you arrive to check out sites in advance, I recommend it, given the wide disparity in levelness of sites and ease of entry. The office is not open Sundays and holidays. I arrived on a holiday, but they gave me very good instructions on how to check in both on the phone and in a follow up email. The office staff was very friendly. The locals, not so much. Actually, they weren't unfriendly, they just acted like I wasn't there. It was a little bizarre. We camped at Caliente Springs Resort (55+ park) in a Motorhome.

Rio Bend RV & Golf Resort, El Centro, California

Date of Stay: November, 2018 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

The park is nice enough, but probably not much here for anyone who doesn't golf. Its very quiet, with pretty landscaping. Nearly every site has an oleander privacy hedge. The site I was sent to was extremely difficult to get into. I managed, with the help of two employees, but later saw many open sites that would have been much easier to park in. It would be a good idea to walk over and check your site before checking in, as whether it is easy or hard to back in depends on whether there's a park model across from you. The park is a great value at the PA rate, and the rate includes a good selection of cable channels. The wifi is so-so. The golf course is mobbed in the mornings, very open in the afternoons. I probably would have considered returning to this park, but for the fact that I fell victim to their little laundry room card scam, and the office would not refund the money for the card I purchased, thinking it had value. I was told "We can't do anything about it because it's run by a third party and we have nothing to do with them." Nothing to do with them??!! They have let the "third party" set up and operate a deceptive system in the laundry room, without appropriate signage, and they don't warn anyone about it. I don't patronize businesses that engage in this sort of behavior, and thus will not return to this park. We camped at Rio Bend RV & Golf Resort in a Motorhome.

Rincon Country West RV Resort (55+ park), Tucson, Arizona

Date of Stay: November, 2018 - $26.00
Overall Rating:

Very nice park, well-maintained, with great customer service. Excellent value with the PA discount. Lots of facilities and activities available, and walking distance to a great shopping center. Right on the Loop bike trail. Large selection of cable channels. Verizon signal strong. Wifi worked ok some of the time, but during peak hours, it often slowed to unusable. Some aircraft noise from the nearby National Guard base, but not that frequent. Very friendly permanent residents, open to welcoming overnighters. Back in parking spots are fairly wide, but they are off of a very narrow lane. If there's no one across from you, you shouldn't have any trouble parking. The spot they assigned me to was across from three long rigs who were parked right on the line, so I had some trouble parking. They do not send out people to help you park, but one of the people across from me ran out to help. I went and looked at the "deluxe courtyard" spaces, since they aren't that much more expensive, but other than making it easier to park, the spots are inferior to the back ins, if you value space and privacy. The courtyard spaces pack in four rigs around a small central area. If you are a group of four motorhomes travelling together, you will love it, otherwise, plan not to have any privacy in those spaces. One thing I found a little off-putting about the park was a notice about bike theft and other crime in the orientation package. I'm glad they warn people about this, and I did not see anything that caused me to think the park or the area was unsafe, but the notice was a little concerning. I spoke to three long permanent residents in the park about this, because I'm considering making this park a yearly stay, and they were not very comforting about it. They did all say that conditions are improving greatly on the crime front over the past few years, and that management is very concerned about the problem. We camped at Rincon Country West RV Resort (55+ park) in a Motorhome.

Benson KOA, Benson, Arizona

Date of Stay: October, 2018 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

Very old park with small space, and trees that will block many slides and awnings in some spaces. Slightly tight to drive through. Last quarter mile into park is heavily rutted road, but not an issue if you drive slowly enough. The two owners were charming, friendly and helpful. The park has seen better days and is probably a little more expensive than other similar parks in Benson, but it has one great attribute in its location. It is north of the freeway, and thus is probably the quietest park in the area. A few cable channels are included in the price. Wifi was extremely slow when people pulled in for the night, worked ok when no one else was there. Verizon worked ok. A dirt path leads to the golf course (about a quarter of a mile), which was nice. We camped at Benson KOA in a Motorhome.

Beautiful park with very spacious sites. Everything is modern and clean. Can't beat the views, and the park is very quiet at night. Not near anything. The trail around the volcanic rock is spectacular. No wifi, but Verizon signal is decent. We camped at Valley of Fires Recreation Area (BLM) in a Motorhome.

Enchanted Trails RV Park & Trading Post, Albuquerque, New Mexico

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $18.00
Overall Rating:

Older park with spaces kind of close, but clean and well maintained, and a great value with the PA discount. While the place isn't fancy or modern, it has a lot of character, with some vintage cars and rvs and really nice, homey common areas. Decent wifi, good verizon and lots of o/a tv. Right off the highway, with all the advantages and disadvantages that that entails. We camped at Enchanted Trails RV Park & Trading Post in a Motorhome.

Los Suenos de Santa Fe RV Park, Santa Fe, New Mexico

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $39.00
Overall Rating:

Older park, a little dilapidated, but in a great location for visiting Santa Fe. You can take a bus or bike on a trail system into downtown Santa Fe. Most of the sites are a little close (not uncomfortably tight), but there are a few at the back of the park that are roomier, as they are located around a curve. Those sites are also the nicest in that they have some shade, they back up to a big picnic area (which appears not to be used by anyone), and they are farthest from the road, giving some relief from the traffic noise. The wifi was very good, and there is lots of o/a tv. Verizon signal was ok. Earlier in the summer, I stayed at the place across the street. It was much nicer in the park itself, but the noise from traffic was horrendous. Also, curiously, the "nice" park across the street is in kind of a cheesy neighborhood, whereas this one is located next to a pretty fancy apartment complex. This park is also a little more convenient to the bike trail and the shopping mall. There is an exit out of the back of the park where you can access those areas without dealing with all the hubbub of Cerrillos Road. There appear to be many month to month residents in this park, but though the park is run down, it is not trashy in any sense. We camped at Los Suenos de Santa Fe RV Park in a Motorhome.

Lathrop State Park, Walsenburg, Colorado

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $24.00
Overall Rating:

Beautiful park. Sites are huge and spaced for tons of privacy. Electric only, but there is a dump station and water available. Quietest place I have camped in some time. Also, very dark at night. Very serene. It was pretty windy the whole time I stayed; don't know if this is endemic to the area or not. Great little golf course right next to the campgrounds, only $10 to walk 9 holes. Several miles to town for groceries, and iffy to bike into town, as you lose the road shoulder for awhile on the way back. Verizon signal is very good. No wifi, a handful of o/a tv stations available. We camped at Lathrop State Park in a Motorhome.

Raton KOA, Raton, New Mexico

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $36.00
Overall Rating:

Nothing fancy, but superb customer service and a much better value than most KOAs. Great location, set back off main road through town; easy to get to and yet pretty quiet at night. Good Verizon signal, and cable TV selection was good. The wifi was great, but the park was not very full when I was there. There are some great country roads in the area that are really fun and safe to bike on. We camped at Raton KOA in a Motorhome.

Black Mesa Casino, Santa Fe, New Mexico

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

This is definitely only an overnight stay place, but as such, it has a lot to commend it. It's right off the interstate, the sites are wide and long and easy to get into, you won't have to unhook anything, there's a travel station across the road, and the little mexican cafe has tasty food. I thought it was a bargain even for only electric sites, and there is a dump and water station at the entrance. We camped at Black Mesa Casino in a Motorhome.
