About Moe and Flo are on the go

We’ve been RVing since 2013 and full-time since 2017. We enjoy travelling and stay about 8 days in each destination. We winter in Florida. Our goal is to visit as many of the national parks as possible and live like this while we are healthy and enjoy it. Note that we prefer woods and nature and water. “Resorts” just don’t excite us. We only review overnighters if we really like and would return or really don't like and are trying to save others. We tow a 40 foot fifth wheel with an F450.

James Island County Park, Charleston, South Carolina

Date of Stay: October, 2019 - $57.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed five nights in a 40 foot fifth wheel. Simply love this park! Beautiful, spacious, well-maintained sites. Friendly staff who really clean up the sites as soon as vacated. Our site was handicap designated but they rent them to all if not claimed by handicap traveler. The park is huge. Lots of walking and biking trails that seem to all be paved. They have many activities especially around the holidays including light festivals so you may want to check on that when reserving. The approach from US17 via Folly Road is interesting. Once you leave Folly you are on roads with old growth Live Oak with canopy that is dripping spanish moss. The clearance is tight. I strongly recommend that you ignore your GPS and come down Camp Road if you are in a tall RV. The park operates a $10 shuttle that will take you to the Charleston Visitor Center, the beach or the fort. We camped at James Island County Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Go to Charleston. Visit the Slave Mart for a very interesting self-guided tour. Take a carriage tour of the historic area. Eat at the Oyster House (very casual) and 84 Queen (more elegant).

Michigan City Campground, Michigan City, Indiana

Date of Stay: August, 2019 - $57.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed four nights in 40 foot fifth wheel. Roads are easy to navigate and patio sites are quite spacious. Note that the patio sites are nearer to the road but road noise was not a problem three rows off. Other reviews expressed dismay about the locked entrance and having issues turning around to get back to the patio sites but I don't understand the problem. I did a u-turn or you could also just drive into the park and then drive back out easy as pie. Site was super long and level. Concrete patio with fire ring and picnic table was nice. I didn't like the crushed course rock used for a base and my tires dug in a bit during the turn in. These are newer sites but not designed with an angled approach so you do have to cut a 90 degree backin especially with somebody across from you. The owner/manager was super nice to relocate us to this larger site. Full sun but they have planted some trees which will mature in time. I think the price is a bit high for the area and the park amenities. We camped at Michigan City Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Take the time to enjoy Indiana Dunes National and State Parks. Both are beautiful and interesting. Enjoy the "European" farmers market in Chesterton on Saturdays from 8:00-2:00. It was great but not especially European. Food, music, produce, etc. Corn was amazing. Yum.

Hy-Land Court RV Park, Ellison Bay, Wisconsin

Date of Stay: August, 2019 - $49.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed seven nights in 40 foot fifth wheel. The park is well maintained and undergoing an expansion. They are adding about fifteen full hookup, pull thru sites in an open area, full sun. Most of the older sites are in full shade and have cable. The full sun sites will have cable but did not while we were there which was fine because we have Dish. This park is at the northern end of Door County peninsula just north of Sister Bay and just south of Elison Bay. This is a beautiful location near plenty of cherry orchards. We were here in mid-late August and the cherry season was winding down. Note that they mostly grow tart cherries here. This is an area that we will return to and likely spend 3-4 weeks. There is so much to see, do, and eat in this area if you want to get out and about. Note that coming into door county for this park you want to stay to the east on 57 rather than come up on 42 so you can avoid many of the small towns and reduced speed areas. 57 will bring you back to 42 just north of Sister Bay. Hy-land Court will be on your left but do NOT take the first entrance at the first sign you see...wait a bit and take the second entrance at the second sign marked office...you will be glad you did. Roads are easy to navigate, site was level, utilities worked fine. Site C10 was especially nice because there is nobody on your door side; just grass and trees. We camped at Hy-Land Court RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Swedish pancakes and meatballs at Johnsons in Sister Bay; food was good and the goats on the roof were cute. Buy some Lingenberry Jam. Take ferry to Washington Island and Rock island. You can buy a combo ticket but you really need a day at each to truly enjoy. Visit and hike in some of the state parks. Pick some thimble berries and add to your pancakes. Kayak caves and Mink River estuary.

Leech Lake Rec Area COE, Federal Dam, Minnesota

Date of Stay: August, 2019 - $13.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed 4 nights in a 40 foot fifth wheel. OMG, we just love this! We have been RVing for five years and full-time for three and this is the only park I have rated a ten where I did not have full hookup. It doesn't matter, I'd stay the two week limit and run to the dump station as needed, this place is beautiful. Most sites are quite spacious and have mature trees and undergrowth for privacy. OK, got that out of my system. The interior roads are paved and well-maintained but like many COE parks they didn't anticipate large RVs. Just be careful on the turns and you will be fine. Be sure to check site details for campsite length as they are not at all uniform. The first five or six sites are full hookup; all others are electric only. There are long term folks here without full hookup, but I don't know how they do it. Only one host/camper site has hookups. They have buddy sites also if that interests you. They were really nice. You can also launch your boat and then more it by rope to the shore overnight. Really nice. We camped at Leech Lake Rec Area COE in a Fifth Wheel.

Grand Forks Campground, Grand Forks, North Dakota

Date of Stay: August, 2019 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed just overnight in 40 foot fifth wheel. The park did the job but I wouldn't plan a long-term stay here. Sites are dirt and a bit muddy, I think you would have pooling water during rain storms. Site just long enough to keep us out of road w/o unhooking. Two small children riding ATV...too young in my opinion. Roads are rather narrow and they have quite a bit of tree overhang so be careful if you, like us, are in a big rig. We did scratch up on trees. We camped at Grand Forks Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Fort Stevenson State Park, Garrison, North Dakota

Date of Stay: August, 2019 - $29.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed seven nights in a 40 foot fifth wheel. This is a beautiful park in a great location on the Lewis and Clark Trail. The park is clean, well maintained, and the staff were very helpful. Note only the north loop is full hookup. We were able to move there after three days in a back-in water/electric site. Also note that some to the back-in sites share both a water pole and an electric pole. We had electric hookup on the left shared with that neighbor and water hookup on the right shared with that neighbor. Forces you to say howdy. Seriously, make sure you have enough electric cable, water hose, and a splitter for the spigot. The full hookup sites in the north loop are the most spacious sites I have ever seen. Most have room for RV, vehicle, boat and more. Really amazing. Paved roads, easy to navigate, easy water access, utilities work great. Many folks bring boats and fish, so have a ball. We camped at Fort Stevenson State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Bob's Resort, Gettysburg, South Dakota

Date of Stay: August, 2019 - $28.00
Overall Rating:

This was just an overnight stop for us in a 40 foot fifth wheel. This is a really nice park as you just cross over the Missouri River after a long day driving. Great value. Seems to be quite a few longer term folks but all sites were well kept up. This is a fishing place so if that's your thing, this is the place. Owner/manager was very nice and the neighbors were friendly. No issues with road or other noise. Gas Station right at the park entrance. We camped at Bob's Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Custer's Gulch RV Park, Custer, South Dakota

Date of Stay: July, 2019 - $48.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed three nights in a 40 foot fifth wheel. This is a nice park just outside the entrance to Custer State Park. If you want the thrill of the chance encounter with buffalo walking through your campsite, you will need to stay inside the state park. The campground is clean and well maintained. The staff members were helpful. Please be careful when making your reservation that you pay attention to site type as they have electric, electric water, and full hookup. We reserved the wrong type but they were able to switch us to a nice FHU site. Roads are gravel/dirt so a bit dusty. Easy to navigate to and around the park. Easy back-in to our site and it was plenty long. Decent spacing between neighbors and a nice picnic table and fire ring. All utilities worked just fine. The water has quite a bit of dissolved solids so be sure to use your filter. We had to change our five micron after just a few days. Hey, they rent cars on site. So if you don't have a towed vehicle or you drive a big honking truck like ours, you can rent a car from them to drive the Needles Highway. This is an excellent location central to all the fun Black Hills stuff. Kick back and stay awhile. We camped at Custer's Gulch RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Visit Custer SP. Do the wildlife loop, Iron Mountain Road, Needles Highway. Do the needles from the Park out so you can see Mt Rushmore as you pass through the eyes of the needle. I strongly encourage that you not take anything larger than a 1/2 ton pickup on Iron Mountain or Needles.

Badlands / White River KOA, Interior, South Dakota

Date of Stay: July, 2019 - $43.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed four nights in 40 foot fifth wheel. This is a nice typical KOA that is very convenient to the entrance to Badlands NP. Compared to other parks that we saw in the area, this is a garden oasis with plenty of shade in the cottonwood trees. There are some drainage canals nearby feeding the White River so it is a bit on the buggy side. The team keeps the park clean and well maintained. They have a little snack bar for that served decent food. The roads are easy to navigate and the sites are level. They are typical KOA narrow so not much room between you and your neighbor. The site length was not so great and we just barely fit with truck and trailer. The owners are VeRy particular about parking in a strait line...nothing crosswise...nothing on the grass. They have some extra long pull thrus in the back that will accomodate any size RV and trailer. They have a nice pool and keep it very clean. We camped at Badlands / White River KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Do the obvious, visit Badlands NP. I must say that the helicopter tour is definitely worth the time and money. It was so great to see the park from the air. Take as many of the hikes as you can and don't be afraid of The Notch trail; these two old people did it.

Medora Campground, Medora, North Dakota

Date of Stay: July, 2019 - $46.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed 7 nights in a 40 foot fifth wheel. The main benefit of this campground is its proximity to the south entrance of the National Park, the town of Medora, and the Medora Musical. The park is ok but not extraordinary. The price is high for this caliber park but a bargain for the location. Sites are quite close if you and your neighbor are both big rigs. Roads are easy to navigate and most sites are pull through. All roads and sites are dirt...dirty dirt. As with most areas around here, if you are in the trees they are dogwoods and this is no exception. Some are huge. All utilities worked well. They have charcoal grill on a pole that you can move around to desired location. If you want a fire, this is also where you are expected to build it. Office staff were friendly and professional.

Elkhorn Ridge RV Resort & Cabins, Spearfish, South Dakota

Date of Stay: July, 2019 - $54.00
Overall Rating:

Wow. If ever there was a 10 rated resort, this is it. We stayed 7 nights in a 40 foot fifth wheel and would have gladly stayed longer. We were here for a RV rally with 30 coaches atending. The park is already huge and still has room to grow. The sites are long and generously wide. All sites are paved and have a table picnic table; no fires allowed. Grass and trees between sites but not enough to block your rooftop satellite. You have all resort facilities including pool, game room, meeting areas, and dog walk. There are beautiful cabins also if you have guest joining you. All utilities worked flawlessly. Site 335 was a backin. Don't let that scare you! The roads are plenty big and the site good and wide. You back onto a berm which blocks the view of the road and the road noise. It was great and I prefer this to the pull thru sites. The location in the black hills of North Dakota is perfect. Get outside and have some fun! We camped at Elkhorn Ridge RV Resort & Cabins in a Fifth Wheel.

Hot Springs / Black Hills KOA, Hot Springs, South Dakota

Date of Stay: July, 2019 - $58.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed four nights in a 40 foot fifth wheel. This is what I call a typically adequate KOA. The sites were just big enough but by the time you have your rig in and your truck parked there is no meaningful space between you and your neighbors. Sitting outside would mean enjoying the view of the neighbor's coach. We didn't start a fire as I felt it was too close to the neighbor. We also had neighbors and dogs parked basically under our bedroom slide but they did turn it off by 2200. We camped at Hot Springs / Black Hills KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Glendo Lakeside RV Park, Glendo, Wyoming

Date of Stay: July, 2019 - $38.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed one night in a 40 foot fifth wheel. This is a nice little park convenient to the nearby US highway. The sites are well spaced with room for extra vehicles and boats. The big draw seems to be the Glendo recreation area so lots of folks with boats and jet skis. Seem to be quite a few long-term residents with rigs set up to winter in that location. The park is only about ten years old so the office and bath house are new and modern. The park office has lots of room but not much in the way of a camp store so bring it with you. I was disappointed that after calling twice for a reservation nobody called me back. We decided to drop in anyway even after seeing a No Vacancy sign out at the road. They did have a cancellation and gave us the site. They do allow fires but you have to bring your own fire ring. We camped at Glendo Lakeside RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Cherry Creek State Park, Aurora, Colorado

Date of Stay: July, 2019 - $41.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed eleven nights in a 40 foot fifth wheel. This is a beautiful and well maintained oasis in an urban jungle. The park is large, this sites are spacious, the staff are friendly. The camp hosts do an extraordinary job cleaning up campsites in between visitors. If you have reason to visit, and don't need a spot for more than two weeks, this is an excellent option. The roads are paved, the sites are concrete pads. Each site is full hookup 50 amp. You will have a nice clean picnic table, a fire ring with grill surface, and a gravel patio area. Really nice! You can see the front range of the Rocky Mountains from the campground and may get some spectacular sunsets. There are amazing bicycle and hiking trails and multiple swim beaches. Boating and other water sports are great if that is your thing and folks are fishing in the reservoir. NOTE: This park is popular especially on weekends and holidays. They have a sign that says they do not guarantee re-admittance if the park is full. This is true. They closed the park to automobiles on July 4th. People were still in long line to the visitor center where they would dump their gear and walk in. So, if you were a camper, you could get out but you would still have to wait in that line to get back in. A word to the wise, do not check in to the campground on a holiday. We camped at Cherry Creek State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed one night in a 40 foot fifth-wheel. Nice campground in a rather remote location of Kansas. The park is unattended so you register and pay via a self-service kiosk. They have both backin and pull-thru sites. The campground is convenient to the state highway and road noise was not an issue. Walk your site before you pull in to check for debris and ruts in the ground from previous occupants. We camped at Hitchin' Post RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
