Palo Duro Canyon State Park, Canyon, Texas

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $24.00
Overall Rating:      

We go here every chance we get. Agree with the rave reviews from others. Not much to add as far as amenities -- no WiFi, as would be expected. We always stay in the Mesquite camping area ..... it's the "end of the road," thus the farthest drive from the entrance. But to us, it's well worth it. Sites are far apart and offer magnificent views. Each has a covered picnic table. We hadn't been here in the summer (try to travel off season) for over 20 years, but braved the heat to see the show again. And would do it again! WOW! The canyon is the second largest in the U.S. and should be on everyone's bucket list! If you have a Texas State Parks annual pass, it comes with 4 half-price camping coupons which makes the price even more reasonable. We camped at Palo Duro Canyon State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Grand Junction KOA, Grand Junction, Colorado

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $42.00
Overall Rating:      

We were concerned since we hadn't stayed here before and needed to stay two weeks. This was an exceptional KOA (in our experience). Nice sized sites with several shade trees and nice landscaping -- there are also cabins and tent sites available. We had a pull-thru, FHU site near the back, so the pool and highway noise were not an issue. Everything was so well-maintained and clean. But what made it really special were the staff members. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Grand Junction KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Raton Pass Camp and Cafe (Formerly Cedar Rail), Raton, New Mexico

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $36.00
Overall Rating:      

We love this park! It's a bit unusual in that it's at the top of a mountain pass. We've stayed here before, but not in 35mph winds which was a bit of an adventure. The owner had gone to the airport, so a camp host welcomed us and was very friendly and helpful. We had a pull-thru site "on top" -- there are two levels -- and it was fine for an overnight stay. Didn't notice surroundings like picnic tables or fire rings (sorry). We do stay here every time we pass through. We camped at Raton Pass Camp and Cafe (Formerly Cedar Rail) in a Fifth Wheel.

Bar J Hitchin Post RV, Sweetwater, Texas

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $36.00
Overall Rating:      

This is fairly new campground (2015), so everything looked nice. It's near I-20 and across from a Love's truck stop, but amazingly quiet at night. I didn't hear the train someone mentioned. Nobody was in the office when we arrived, but it was lunch time and in a matter of minutes, a friendly lady arrived on a golf cart. The office is also the "rec" room with a pool table and lounge area. It's tastefully decorated in rustic Western style and adjacent to the restrooms/showers. There are a few shade trees -- it will be very nice in a few years. We will definitely recommend this park and return when we're in the area. We camped at Bar J Hitchin Post RV in a Fifth Wheel.

Yerby's RV Park, Dumas, Texas

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

This park has many permanent residents and workers, but it appears there is a separate row or two for folks passing through. As mentioned, there are no restrooms but we are self-contained. Our pull-through site was spacious enough and quiet for an overnight stay. Good free WiFi. Adjacent to a lovely city park. We were there on a Sunday when they are closed, so we used the dropbox at the office and never met anyone. The park is well-maintained and we would definitely stay there again. We camped at Yerby's RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Oasis RV Resort, Amarillo, Texas

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $36.00
Overall Rating:      

We've stayed here several times on our way from Texas to Colorado. It's a very well-maintained park with nice sites and roads, as other reviewers have mentioned. We've not used the pool, laundry, etc. but they all look nice and clean. Staff are friendly and helpful. Only reason it didn't get a 10 is that there are no shade trees (yet). Will stay here again.

San Angelo KOA, San Angelo, Texas

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

This was only the second time we've stayed at a KOA in over 20 years of RVing. We spent the week between Christmas and New Year's here (buy 6 nights, the 7th is free). Boy, did this place "sell" us on them! Not only was the park very nice, the owners (2 couples) were outstandingly friendly and helpful. In addition to the regular services, we had trash pickup at our site and a daily newspaper delivered to our site. The Wifi was excellent! (a rarity at RV parks). We will definitely return and even try another KOA soon. We camped at San Angelo KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Lagoons RV Resort, Rockport, Texas

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

The rate reflects a "rally rate." We were surprisingly impressed with this park, which appears to be pretty well maintained. The sites were far enough apart to get slides out, with some space between rigs. We had just enough room to park our tow vehicle in front of our rig, sideways. Not all had shade, however. The staff in the office were pleasant and helpful. The clubhouse was amazing -- catering to "winter Texans" with a huge activity room, indoor pool, laundry with 10 washers and 10 dryers, large library, billiard room with 3 pool tables, and a snack bar open in winter. The only big drawback, in my opinion, is that they have no WiFi except in the clubhouse. The location of the park is great-- close to everything yet off a main highway. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Lagoons RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Canyon Trail RV Resort, San Marcos, Texas

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

This is a most interestingly-run park. It's self-service. There is nobody in the office (at least at any time during our 5-day stay) and a phone call gets an answering machine, although once a lady did answer. There is a box outside the office for you to take a form, fill it out, and put it with a check (no credit cards) in an envelope, then deposit it in a slit in the box. So if you don't have any questions or need help or recommendations for local restaurants, shops, hospitals, repair shops, etc. I guess that's fine.

There are also signs throughout the park and club house indicating there is a problem with theft and to lock up your belongings. While we were here, one man said his water regulator was stolen overnight. And signs in the restrooms say do not make a mess because there is nobody to clean the restrooms. Just a different kind of place.

The park itself is nice, several shade trees and wide sites. It's right on an Interstate hwy., but noise was not a problem inside the rig with our A/C running. Convenient location between San Marcos (Outlet Malls) and New Braunfels (Camping World). 50 amp electric service is sometimes questionable. We camped at Canyon Trail RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Top of the Hill RV Resort, Boerne, Texas

Date of Stay: July, 2015 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

I agree with "Sally" about the laughable Premium sites. I thought ours was worse than most others - no shade, gravel, back-in instead of pull-through, and about 3 feet from our neighbors. It was OK for us since we spent most of our time away from the RV park and didn't use any of their amenities. The entire area was covered in sticker-burrs so watch out if you have a dog. Wi-Fi was non-existent and we were told by a nearby permanent resident that they advertise it but it had never worked in the many months he had lived there. Part of the low rating is because of the rude lady in the office, so others may have a different experience. We will never go back. We camped at Top of the Hill RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Overall Rating:      

We stayed here in 2006 and couldn't wait to get back...and it's just as nice as we remembered it. We stayed here a week while we explored the Smoky Mountains area. The folks at the park were all friendly and helpful. We didn't stay by the creek because we used Passport America, but we could walk over the bridge and enjoy it -- there were picnic tables in the trees. We love everything about this park and hope to return soon. We camped at Creekwood Farm RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Levi Jackson State Park, London, Kentucky

Date of Stay: April, 2015 - $21.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed here in the rain and during the week in April, so didn't see the kids running around as noted in other posts. We were close to the back and it was quiet. We stayed here to visit Cumberland Falls, so didn't use the bath houses or any other amenities. The little mill/museum was flooded so we didn't see it either. We did have to wait for someone to come to the "office" to check us in. We camped at Levi Jackson State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Fontainebleau State Park, Mandeville, Louisiana

Date of Stay: October, 2013 - $18.00
Overall Rating:      

We really enjoyed this park, but after exploring it, think we had one of the best sites. We were in the "new" section. The roads were narrow and winding, but we were near the entrance so didn't have to weave our way between the trees. We were away from the playground and pavilion area. It's a state park, thus devoid of a lot of upscale amenities that we don't use anyway. Decent Wi-Fi was a pleasant surprise. We would stay here again if we could get a site in the same area.

Whispering Oaks RV Park (Formerly Columbus KOA), Weimar, Texas

Date of Stay: October, 2013 - $33.00
Overall Rating:      

This was a hard one to rate. We only spent one night, sandwiched between Interstate-10 and a very busy, very nearby railroad track. Didn't sleep at all. But our site was a nice, level pull-thru with a shade tree. The lady in the office and her husband were delightful and helpful. We didn't use the shower, but I'd bet it was clean. If the railroad noise isn't a problem, this would be a nice stop. This was the most expensive campground we stayed at on a 6-week trip and it was not worth it.

Gulf Coast RV Resort, Beaumont, Texas

Date of Stay: October, 2013 - $36.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed here twice -- for 3 nights traveling east, then again for 1 night returning west. Both times we had nice, level, pull-through concrete sites. We did not hear highway noise inside our rig. The first time, the grass was very high and the grounds seemed rather unkept -- this was before the rains which made our last stay quite soggy (not their fault). We did not use the pool, dog run, showers, playground, etc. so cannot comment. The breakfast was great -- biscuits & gravy, pastries, waffles, cereal, juice, coffee -- all replenished by a very nice lady. The only reason I didn't rate it a 10 is the "come-and-go" Wi-Fi which surprised us since we were very close to the office and antenna. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Gulf Coast RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
