Downtown Riverside RV Park, North Little Rock, Arkansas

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

First, the GPS address is incorrect, the address has been changed to 50 Riverfront Dr., North Little Rock. Even with the wrong address, we were able to find the park by following the signs. This is a gated park, and the gate closes at 5:30 PM, so don't forget your gate code. The park is owned by the city, and all the employees were friendly and helpful. While we were there, the police came through at least once a day. We had a pull thru which was quite a bit longer then the length of our rig plus toad. The pull thrus are arranged so that every other rig faces the river, and the others face the flood control wall. Luckily, we faced the river. There were four connections for electric, water, and sewer at each pedestal, so there was no problems getting connected. One day, the surge protector showed reversed polarity, so I just unplugged and used one of the other outlets, with no problem. I notified the office of the problem and it was fixed by the next day. Satellite and OTA TV worked well, as did our AT&T cell phones and hot spots. Their wi-fi worked well most of the time, especially in the mornings and evenings. We would stay here again. We camped at Downtown Riverside RV Park in a Motorhome.

DiamondJacks Casino and Resort, Bossier City, Louisiana

Date of Stay: April, 2018 - $23.00
Overall Rating:

Since we had reservations, the clerk called us and told us what site we were assigned, since we were arriving after the office closed. We were assigned site 31, which is next to the office and on a slope. We had to put pads under the front wheels, to get level. We had no trouble finding the connections, and no problems getting connected. We found that our satellite TV and OTA TV worked well, as did our AT&T cell phones and hot spot. After checking in the next morning, we got their Wi-Fi password. The Wi-Fi was spotty and weak. The park is next to a highway, which seems to be a major route for emergency vehicles, so their some road noise, and most nights, you get the siren noise. It is also next to railroad tracks and a railroad bridge over the river, so you get that noise. The noise didn't bother us, since the trains didn't use their horns that much, but a light sleeper might have some problems. We would stay here again. We camped at DiamondJacks Casino and Resort in a Motorhome.

Fort Stockton RV Park, Fort Stockton, Texas

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

We had reservations and as soon as we pulled into the park, we were met by an escort, who showed us to our site. The escort said to check in at the office, when we got settled. The connections were all together, so we were able to get connected easy enough. Satellite and cable TV worked well, as did the Wi-Fi, and our AT&T cell phones. When we checked in, we got a packet which included the menu for the on-site café, which is right next to the office. We camped at Fort Stockton RV Park in a Motorhome.

Rose Valley RV Ranch, Silver City, New Mexico

Date of Stay: April, 2018 - $27.00
Overall Rating:

We got in after the office closed and found our packet taped to the office door. We had been placed in site 63, which we found easy enough, thanks to their packet and their site map. Site 63 is on the down slope of a hill. We spent an hour trying to get level, after we moved to site 73, which was open. There, we were able to get leveled on the first attempt. We checked in the next day, and there was no problem with our move. The interior roads are gravel, with the sites a mix of gravel and dirt. There was no problems getting everything connected. We camped at Rose Valley RV Ranch in a Motorhome.

A Country RV Park, Bakersfield, California

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

We had a little problem checking in, even though we had a confirmed reservation, they told us they were full. After some back and forth between the manager and office clerk, they found us a site. We found the interior roads are asphalt and the sites were concrete. All the connections were together, making it easy to get connected. Cable TV and satellite TV worked well. Wi-fi worked well, until it rained. Our AT&T cell phones and hotspots worked well. The park has easy on and off access to the freeway, so there is some road noise.

Coyote Valley RV Resort, Morgan Hill, California

Date of Stay: March, 2018 - $80.00
Overall Rating:

A word of caution, if you decide to stay here, make sure to follow the directions that are in their e-mail. The state has put a divider on Monterey Rd, so if you don't follow the directions, you might have to go a few miles, before you can make a U-turn. Check in was a breeze. They have someone lead you to your site, and they assist you in backing into the site. The only complaint we have is that they like to park you close to the bushes, between the sites, so it was a pain to access the basement and wet bay. We had a deluxe back-in site, so we were able to park our Jeep next to the coach. The cable TV, DirecTV, and AT&T cell phones, including our wf-fi hotspots worked well. Their wi-fi worked well, until it started raining, after that, we had to use our hotspots. There are train tracks across the highway, but inside the coach, the noise didn't bother us. A nice park, and if in the area, we would stay again. We camped at Coyote Valley RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Cal Expo RV Park, Sacramento, California

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

The daily rate is based on what we paid for a 2 week stay. As someone else pointed out, there are 2 sides to the park, a paved side and a gravel side. We ended on the gravel side, which is apparently the side reserved for the big rigs that need 50 amps. The sites are only marked by the electric meter box, with nothing showing any type of boundary for the front or rear of the site. Locating the connections was easy and for the most part, easy to get connected. There was a little bit of a problem with the sewer connection, as the hole is sunk into a concrete pad, making it a little difficult to get the sewer elbow to stay in the hole. Our AT&T cell phones and hot spot worked well. Their Wi-Fi worked well, as did our OTA and satellite TV. We camped at Cal Expo RV Park in a Motorhome.

Country Manor Mobile Home Community (55+ Park), Visalia, California

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

The park was easy to locate, even if it was in town. It was close enough to the highway to make it easy to get on and off. The attendant was friendly and easy to get checked in. The attendant did not mention anything about stealing in the area, but one of the other RVers told us that some bicycles had been stolen. I don't kn0w if the attendant was aware of the thefts or not. The interior roads are paved, and the sites are concrete. The connections were all close together, so it was easy to get connected. The Wi-Fi worked well, but we found some web sites were blocked, gambling and firearm sites. Satellite and OTA TV worked well, as did our AT&T cell phones.

Rancho Jurupa Park, Riverside, California

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

We stayed here for 2 weeks, using it to explore the Los Angeles area. We booked on-line, which added an $8 reservation fee. On-line, we were able to see the sites, as well as being able to pick the site we wanted. When we arrived, we had to show proof of insurance and vehicle registrations. We found that the interior roads and sites are all paved, with some sites having a concrete pad, for the RV. We found that the site we picked was large enough to park the RV and 2 other vehicles, at least. We site we had was one of the longest and widest sites we have seen. The connections were easy to locate and no problems to connect. The antenna TV was mostly non-English channels, but the satellite TV worked well. AT&T cell phone and hotspots worked well. We like it so much that we have already booked another stay in March. We camped at Rancho Jurupa Park in a Motorhome.

If you plan on visiting the Los Angeles area, while here, you might look into investing in a Fast Trak transponder. We found that paying some of the tolls and being able to use the Express Lanes were very helpful and less stress when driving in the area.

Sweetwater Summit Regional Park, Bonita, California

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

We booked on-line, so we were able to pick the site we wanted. There is a $5 reservation fee, for booking on-line. This is also not like some other parks, where if you don't show up, you loose your site. Here, once you pay for the site, you don't loose it, it yours for the time you paid for. Getting into the park is via some narrow, hilly streets, but it is doable. The interior roads are asphalt, with the sites being concrete. They have Wi-fi, but the security certificate has expired, so we didn't use it. Antenna TV worked well, except we were not able to get CBS. Satellite TV was good, as did our AT&T cell phones. The connections were easy to locate and easy to get connected. Our site was long enough that we could have fit 2 of our coaches on it and still have room to park the toad. We camped at Sweetwater Summit Regional Park in a Motorhome.

Cactus Blossom RV Retreat, Yuma, Arizona

Date of Stay: December, 2017 - $13.00
Overall Rating:

The rate we paid was $9o a week, plus electric. This is just a basic park, with no amenities. Some of the sites do have storage sheds, but ours did not. The park is easy to find, and even though it is in a residential area, it is nice and quiet. The roads into the park are wide enough for RVs, and we saw several parked in yards, beside houses, and in other small parks in the area. The owner lives in the area, and just about every day he comes over to clean and rake the gravel. While we were there, there were only 3 other RVs in the park. We camped at Cactus Blossom RV Retreat in a Motorhome.

Las Vegas RV Resort , Las Vegas, Nevada

Date of Stay: December, 2017 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

We paid $585, for a month, which works out to be $19.50 per night, less taxes. The park has 24 hour security, including a 24 hour gate guard. We found the employees to be friendly and helpful. When we checked in, we were informed that even though we had a pull thru, all the connections were in the back of the site, so we would need to unhook our toad, before getting to our site. We were also told that unlike most parks, parking and driving on the gravel is allowed, when necessary. The interior roads and pads are asphalt. We found that a lot of the interior roads were narrow, and there are some tight turns, especially for a larger RV.

The strip is about 15 minutes away, as long as traffic is flowing. The park sets right on Nellis Blvd, which seems to be a major through fare during rush hour, other then that, there is not much traffic. If we ever go back to Vegas, we would stay here again. We camped at Las Vegas RV Resort in a Motorhome.

The MotorCoach Resort, Chandler, Arizona

Date of Stay: November, 2017 - $46.00
Overall Rating:

We paid $325 for a week, taxes not included. As others have pointed out, this is not really a resort park, but you have is a nice clean, small park with sites that are about average in width, but they are extra long. This is not a park where you can just pull in and get a site, reservations are required. The park is very clean, and they have a security patrol. Check-in is a 4x8 sign that has a box containing your site number, a map, and codes to the bathroom and Wi-Fi. You don't have to go to the office, unless you need something. All the roads and sites are asphalt, with gravel between the sites. The Wi-Fi worked very well, as did the TV, OTA and satellite, and cell service was excellent. The park is right off of the interstate, so there can be a lot of road noise. There were several times where it sounded like the highway was a drag strip. There is also a motor sport area across the interstate, so that can also get noisy, but that is usually only during the day. We camped at The MotorCoach Resort in a Motorhome.

Route 66 RV Resort, Albuquerque, New Mexico

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

We stayed here for 26 days, and the rate reflects the $50 per day during Balloon Fest and $35 for the rest of the time. This is a very nice park, about 20 miles from downtown Albuquerque. It is a gated park, so make sure to get your key card when you check in. The park is well planned and the sites are well marked on the pedestals, as well as on the pavement. The interior roads and drives are asphalt, with concrete pads on each site. The service is excellent, and being next to the casino, you can get a free shuttle to and from the casino. Their Wi-Fi worked very well, but be warned it is an open public system, so we used out hotspots for anything we wanted kept private. Satellite, OTA TV, and cell phones worked well. This out third time staying here. A side note, if you drink and go to the casino, be advised that under New Mexico law, you cannot drink on the casino floor.

Meteor Crater RV Park, Winslow, Arizona

Date of Stay: November, 2017 - $31.00
Overall Rating:

We stopped here for one night. The rate we paid is for 50 amp service, which is $2 extra, and the Good Sam Discount. The park is right off of I-40, with easy access to the highway. The park is partially gated, with an entry gate at the office, which is located in the Mobil station. There is also an entry and exit that lead to the dirt road south of the park. The interior roads and sites were gravel, and it looks like all the sites have trees. The wi-fi worked well, as did the satellite and OTA TV. We didn't use our cell phones, but we did notice that we had a strong signal. The connections were easy to locate and had no problems getting connected. We only had electric and water. We would stay here again overnight. If we could get full hook-ups, we would stay longer, to explore the area. When staying here, you get a discount on fuel and to Meteor Crater. We camped at Meteor Crater RV Park in a Motorhome.
