Hollywood Casino RV Park, Bay Saint Louis, Mississippi

Date of Stay: January, 2019 - $32.00
Overall Rating:

Reserved day before, paid by credit card, got confirmation number. Arrived 3:15pm. Found office closed and locked. No notice posted. Backed into empty site by office. Found electric boxed pad-locked. Security car went by - didn't stop. Called same number as reservation. On hold 2-3 minutes. Got through. Was told office person was at lunch but will send security to unlock padlock. He also advised that we will be charged an additional $50 "deposit" to cover restaurant charges. Security lady pulled up an unlocked. Not at all a pleasant or friendly person. Grumpy. Then wife checked office. Great! Now open. Got one page brochure with TV channels crossed out before they just shifted to new cable service new listing. - but did not have any listing. I don't do casinos but went here because wife likes the slots. So I spent over an hour doing hunt and peck looking for channels (over 50) I wanted. Never found CBS. Wife walked to casino and then, because it was dark, asked for ride back to site. 30 minute wait. We camped at Hollywood Casino RV Park in a Motorhome.

American RV Park & Sales, Corsicana, Texas

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

Hesitated to stay here due to prior reviews. We found this park to be well worth the very reasonable rate of $30 after paying as much as $100 a night in several KOAs on this trip. Our site was ample in space and level. Friendly and courteous office person. No cable. Couldn't get local TV but clear space for satellite. Will return. We camped at American RV Park & Sales in a Motorhome.

Laramie KOA, Laramie, Wyoming

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $70.00
Overall Rating:

Really don't agree with all the comments about road noise. It was similar to many other parks and did not bother us. Site was level and adequate. Only complaint, which may seem minor if you are not about age 80 with arthritis in your fingers, the cable tv connection is 12 inches off the ground (site 77) next to a cable pipe and the only way I could connect was to lay prone on the grass and take off my rx glasses and try to screw cable onto connection. We camped at Laramie KOA in a Motorhome.

Buffalo KOA , Buffalo, Wyoming

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

Excellent park Friendly staff in office and provided advice regarding local restaurant. Escorted to our site. I found our neighbor (not present) used our post for TV cable. KOA staff member drove by and saw that neighbor's cable was too short for their site. She immediately provided them with a longer cable and connected them. Would have been a 10 except for: 1. Dog park was all gravel and our dog strongly prefers grass. 2. Site 56 was off level about 2 degrees fore and aft, perfect side to side. We camped at Buffalo KOA in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Don't miss the local Winchester Steak House - 1/4 mile away. Arrive at 5pm opening to avoid a long wait. Great steaks and service. We were able to park our 25' motor home. Too hot to walk but sidewalk all the way.

Shreveport / Bossier City KOA, Shreveport, Louisiana

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $43.00
Overall Rating:

Excellent park. We stayed one night and then returned for two more nights. Site level. All hookups worked well. Fair to good cable - some channels snowy. Wireless - slow to connect so didn't use. Dog parks excellent - large and small sections. Playground equipment for the pups. Would have rated a "10" except for one issue: we tried to get a propane fill before we left at 10:30am Sunday morning - a common time for campers to leave. I was told by the lady in the office that it would not be possible unless we waited for a period of time. If a KOA says they have propane, they should have an authorized filler available - particularly at check-out time on a Sunday. We camped at Shreveport / Bossier City KOA in a Motorhome.

Louisiana State Fair - about 8 miles away. Open from Oct. 27- mid November. Used Lyft from and to park to avoid leaving pup parking at Fair. Don't expect to get Propane on a Sunday morning at checkout time.

Route 66 RV Resort, Albuquerque, New Mexico

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

All was good. Shuttle to and from Casino prompt. The only negative was lack of communication of on line reservation. No email confirmation. Called day before and left voice m ail message no call back. No response. Sent email asking for confirm - no response. Finally called again morning of reservation and got live person who confirmed. Manager apologized and we noted email was spelled incorrectly. Don't know if my fault or theirs but he acknowledged that they should have called. No cable TV, but air antenna picked up 50+ good stations. We camped at Route 66 RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Alamosa KOA, Alamosa, Colorado

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $39.00
Overall Rating:

Pro: Level site. Ample room. Hunt Brothers Pizza delivered to site excellent. Con: Dog Park had piles of dog poop. My wife cleaned it up four our pup. She reported to KOA staff with little response. No cable and no success getting on air reception. For the price, this park should have cable. Could not connect to wireless. Low water pressure - 20 psi. We camped at Alamosa KOA in a Motorhome.

Burkburnett / Wichita Falls KOA, Burkburnett, Texas

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

In reading earlier reviews, this park must have substantially improved. Warmly greeted upon arrival. Escorted to site and was told they moved us over for more shade and sewer. This was just one night. Site level although gravel. Cable TV excellent - best we have seen in many a park. We camped at Burkburnett / Wichita Falls KOA in a Motorhome.

Great park for overnight. Office open 24hrs a day.

Asked for and got free cable box and remote needed for cable. However, I couldn't find outside connection. Called Office and person came right out on golf cart and located it. Small gray box on electric post with door. Cable Box needs 120V power and connect between inside end of syour cable and TV. Looks like 100 channels.

Has small dog park. We camped at Texarkana RV Park & Event Center in a Motorhome.

Branson KOA, Branson, Missouri

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

We stayed five nights and found the park and service to be excellent.

We were in our 25' motor home and do not tow.

The park clearly states that pull thru sites in the lower cost section may require leveling. I did not notice that (my fault) and found the first night I needed 2" blocks front and back to get level.I didn't want to do this task each time we left and returned.

The next morning I asked the office to upgrade us to th newer section with concrete pads for the tires. They had the last last one available at a nominal increase in cost. We camped at Branson KOA in a Motorhome.

River View RV Park & Resort, Vidalia, Louisiana

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

All good except:

1. Made phone res. night before - 2 nights. Gave PA and Good Sam numbers, credit card, etc. Got email confirm.

At Check in- told they had res for only one night. Asked for PA and Goo Sam numbers although given at phone reservation. Did not give site map.

2. Had to ask for cable channel listing which they had to print off a computer file. Only 10 channels.

3. At site - no cable connection. Back to office. Said no cable at section assigned so I had to move. Even though they had to print and gave me cable channel listing, never said no cable at site assigned.

4. Moved to new site. Cable reception so bad (snow) only 2-3 were workable - no networks. We camped at River View RV Park & Resort in a Motorhome.
