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. We camped at Route 66 RV Resort in a Motorhome.

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.

Fleming Park/Blue Springs Campground, Blue Springs, Missouri

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

Nice park, close to I-70, and right off of I-470. The interior roads are asphalt, and the sites are gravel. The attendants are friendly and helpful. The park is gated, so a code is needed to drive into the park. I don't know if there have been problems there lately, but we saw the police and park rangers driving thru about every day. There is no Wi-Fi and no cable TV, but our AT&T hotspots, as well as satellite and antenna TV worked well. The sites are wide enough that you can park your tow next to the RV, if you want to. At our site, all the connections were at the back of the site, on a concrete pad, which made it easy to get connected. Each site has a picnic table and fire ring, and they sell ice and firewood at the park entrance. We camped at Fleming Park/Blue Springs Campground in a Motorhome.

Hinton RV Park, Sikeston, Missouri

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $32.00
Overall Rating:      

Stayed here for 2 nights, while we went to Lambert's Café and visited relatives. Check in was quick and easy, office staff was friendly and attentive. After check-in, she then guided us to the site. Easy to get leveled, easy to locate connections and to get everything connected. Wi-Fi worked very well. I think I counted 10 Wi-Fi antennas in the park. Cable and satellite TV worked well, as did our AT&T cell phones. We would stay here again. We camped at Hinton RV Park in a Motorhome.

Grand Ole RV Resort, Goodlettsville, Tennessee

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $35.00
Overall Rating:      

Upon check in, they have someone guide you to your site, our guide then offered to help me get connected. The interior roads and sites were gravel, with picnic table. All the connections were easy to locate and easy to get connected. The employees were pleasant and helpful. We were here for one night, and they were having a cook out and live music, for Labor Day. Satellite TV and AT&T cell service worked well. Our OTA antenna is out, so don't know about live TV. The Wi-Fi, like most places, worked well, until it started rain, so we switched to our AT&T hotspots, which worked well. We would stay here again. We camped at Grand Ole RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Thousand Trails / Indian Lakes (now both TT and KOA), Batesville, Indiana

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $52.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed on the Thousand Trails side. We had made our reservations about 3 weeks in advance, reserving a full hook-up, 50 amp service pull-thru. When we checked in, we were given a map, and told find a site that we liked. The employee told us that here are the 3 phases, and she circled them on the map. Phase 2 and 4 had pull-thrus, but she didn't know what sites were available, what sites had full hook-ups, what sites had 50 amp, and what sites were just water and electric. She did know that phase three was just water and electric. We drive around, ran into some low hanging branches in phase 3, where another employee directed us to phase 5, which also was a mix of full hook-ups, some with 30 amp, some with 50 amp, and some with just water and electric. After a third employee stopped us and helped us, we were able to find a site. We ended up in phase 2, where our site was mostly grass, and not level. We were able to level the coach by placing pads under the rear wheels. The water and sewer were in the driver side and the electric was on the passenger side, so we had to run the electric under the coach. Then it rained for a couple of days and the fire pit and sewer connection were under water. Our thoughts are, if you are going to take reservations and charge $52 per night, you should at least be able to tell people what site that they reserved, instead of telling them you need to go find your site. We camped at Thousand Trails / Indian Lakes (now both TT and KOA) in a Motorhome.

Sterling State Park, Monroe, Michigan

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $37.00
Overall Rating:      

A word of caution, if you live out of state, you will need to buy a DNR pass for the park. If you have a motor home and are towing, you will need to buy two DNR passes. You can buy them by the day or for the year. When made our reservations, we were told we would only need one pass for the Jeep, but when we got to the park, we had to buy 2 of them. That should be taken into consideration, if you decide to stay here. We had a back-in and didn't have any problems getting situated on the site and no problems locating the connections or getting connected. We had some electrical problems, low voltage on one leg of the 50A, and when I called the RV office, they had the ranger there in about 30 minutes. Turned out to be a bad circuit breaker, which the ranger promptly changed. AT&T cell phone and hotspot and satellite TV worked well. Our OTA antenna shot craps, so we don't know how well OTA TV worked. This is a nice park on the shores of Lake Erie. There is a swimming beach and boat ramps in the park, not far from the campground. Bike and walking paths through out the park. This is a nice park, and we would stay here again. We camped at Sterling State Park in a Motorhome.

Frankfort Crystal Lake RV Resort, Frankfort, Michigan

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

First off, there is no office, so the manager runs things out of his RV. The interior roads are gravel, with most of the sites being concrete, with a patio made from pavers, but there are some grass sites. We had reserved a site, by phone, several days before our arrival. When we go there, the site had been given to someone else. Told them we didn't really care, as long as they had a site for us, for a week. They said we could have site 48, and we were escorted to the site. After getting backed in and leveled, the escorts made sure that we didn't need help getting connected, and explained where everything was at, and advised that they do pickup trash at the sites. While we were there, the manager came by twice and the owner once, to apologize for the mix-up in the reservations, and to make sure we were happy with the site. There is no wi-fi, but our AT&T hotspots worked well, as did our cell service. Satellite TV worked well, which was good, as our signal finding OTA antenna quit working, and wouldn't find any signals. I used the laundry room and found it and the machines very clean. We would stay here again. We camped at Frankfort Crystal Lake RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Bay Mills RV Park, Brimley, Michigan

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $29.00
Overall Rating:      

Other reviews have said that you need to go to the hotel/casino desk to check in, that is no longer true. The RV park now has it's own office. When we arrived and got checked in, the employee showed me a map of the park and pointed out the empty sites. She handed me a map and asked which site I wanted, so I picked 78. The interior roads and sites are gravel. We pulled into our site, found the connections, and got everything connected. The cable TV worked so well that we didn't check on the satellite or over the air TV the whole week we were there. AT&T cell service and hotspots worked well. The park has Wi-Fi however, the security certificate has expired, and while the phones and tablets connected with no problems, our computers wouldn't connect, unless we turned off the anti-virus software. This we wouldn't do, so we used our hotspots for the computers. Our site was close to the road, so we got some road noise, mainly from the ATVs that use the road right of way to get around, but nothing that really bothered us. The park is a work in progress, and they were working on building a pavilion, while we were there. We would stay here again, if in the area. We camped at Bay Mills RV Park in a Motorhome.

The park is just past the downtown area and easy to find. Check in was easy, and we were guided to our site. The interior road was a mix of dirt and gravel. The site was a mix of gravel and grass, but fairly level, as we had no problems getting level and no problems getting everything connected. We found that even with the trees, our satellite TV worked well, as did the OTA TV. We were told when we checked in that the Wi-Fi worked better towards the office, which we found to be true, because it didn't work well at our site. We ended up using out hotspots more then we did the Wi-Fi. AT&T cell phones worked well. We would stay there again, if in the area.

Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park, Caledonia, Wisconsin

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $50.00
Overall Rating:      

Turning into the campground, from the highway, we found some low hanging tree branches on one side of the road. The $50 per night is based on the average of the 3 week nights and 2 weekend nights we stayed there, not including the $7 per person occupancy fee and the $10 early check in fee. When we checked in, we were given site 187, a back-in, which we parked in the site and started getting connected, the electrical breakers started tripping, and the surge protector showed low voltage on leg 2. They sent a maintenance man out, but he couldn't figure it out, so the manager came out, and after a couple of hours, they finally moved us to another site, site 20, a pull thru. Once we got to site 20, we were able to get connected without any problem. I did find that the sewer connection was about a foot above the ground, instead of being at ground level. Satellite TV didn't work, due to the trees. Antenna TV worked well. The Wi-Fi wasn't very good, and we ended up using our hotspots most of the time. The employees were friendly and helpful and kept asking if we were doing all right in the new site. This is a gated park, and they give you a key card when you check in. During the weekend we were there, the park appeared to be full, with a lot of kids out wandering around and playing. They weren't a problem, just a FYI, in case you want to avoid kids. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park in a Motorhome.

Kaskaskia Dragon RV Park, Vandalia, Illinois

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

This is a fairly new park, right off of I-70, with easy access, off and on. There are only 12 sites, so it is small. There no amenities, and you have to register at the hardware store across the street from the park. When we checked in, we were told to go pick an empty site. The sites are basically back-ins, but if there is space available, you can pull thru one site to park into another site, which is what we did. We like how spacious the sites where, with plenty of room to park another vehicle, in front, behind, or beside your RV. The connections are clearly marked, and we had no problem getting connected. There is no cable TV and antenna TV was lacking, but the satellite TV worked just fine. There is no Wi-Fi, but our hotspots worked well. If you stay here, make sure watch the dragon, as he spouts fire out of his snout. Across the street, from the park, you will find a liquor store, a laundromat, car/dog wash, and the hardware store. We camped at Kaskaskia Dragon RV Park in a Motorhome.

Alton RV Park, Galloway, Ohio

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $34.00
Overall Rating:      

The people running the place are extremely helpful and friendly. We stayed here a week, as it was the closest place we could find to the Nationwide Childrens Hospital. We were in site 25, which was described as having to parallel park, and it was exactly that, but with some extra room. On the passenger side was the interior road, while on the driver side there was some woods, a swamp, and a space for the site's picnic table. The Wi-Fi worked well, as did our AT&T cell phones. The TV worked well on the antenna and on satellite. Connections were well marked and easy to get connected. The water, we were told, comes from a well. I did talk to someone from a water testing lab, who was taking samples, and he told me he was doing the quarterly water testing. This is a basic park, with no amenities. It was clean, and it was quiet. We would stay again. We camped at Alton RV Park in a Motorhome.

The park is just off of I-70, easy to find and easy to get back onto the interstate. We spend just one night here, since it was about the halfway point between Kansas City and Columbus, OH. We had a pull-thru, and as others have noted, trees blocked the satellite signal, and there was no OTA TV. We did manage to use the DirecTV streaming service. We found the Wi-Fi was good, and AT&T cell service was good. We camped at Okaw Valley Kampground in a Motorhome.
