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.

Kewaunee Village RV Park and Campground, Kewaunee, Wisconsin

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $38.00
Overall Rating:      

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.

Okaw Valley Kampground, Brownstown, Illinois

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

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.

Winterset City Campground and RV Park, Winterset, Iowa

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

This campground is owned by the city, and is well kept and clean. The campground road and sites were all gravel. Sites have a picnic table and fire ring. The campground is right next to a city park, where you will find a playground, a pavilion, a baseball field, and one of the covered bridges of Madison County. Our site was level and easy to back into. The electric and sewer were easy to get connected. The water is shared with another site, and the way we were situated, we had to run the water hose under the coach. Antenna and satellite TV worked well. AT&T cell service worked some of the time, but not well and never in the mornings. The park doesn't have Wi-Fi, and most of the time, we were not able to use our hotspots. We would stay here again. We camped at Winterset City Campground and RV Park in a Motorhome.

Wisconsin Riverside Resort, Spring Green, Wisconsin

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

Check in was fast and easy, with no mention of Wi-Fi service. The interior roads were paved, while the sites were grass and sand. Our site was more sand then grassy. There was a picnic table, on a small concrete pad, and a fire ring. It was to find the connections and easy to get connected. Antenna and satellite TV worked well. We were able to get an open Wi-Fi connection, but it was unknown who it belonged to. The Wi-Fi kept fading in and out, and worked well when we could stay connected. AT&T cell service was terrible, and most times it was non-existent. The sites were very close together, and we ended up with tent campers on both sides. We expected more, for the money we paid, and we were not impressed. We will not return. We camped at Wisconsin Riverside Resort in a Motorhome.

Amana Colonies RV Park, Amana, Iowa

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $28.00
Overall Rating:      

Nice park, with friendly people, that if you ask, will tell you about some of the things to do and sights in the area. We paid $198, for the week, plus $13.86 in taxes, for a total of $211.86 After checking in, we were escorted to our site. There we found that the connections were all in back, but we have longer water and sewer hose, so it was manageable. The sites are not really pull-through, as they can park you tail to tail. We were lucky enough that it wasn't busy, and we never get someone behind us or directly next to us. The interior roads and sites were all gravel. Each site had a picnic table. They have a limited number of fire rings, which they will bring to your site, if you want one. Wi-Fi worked well most of the time, even though we had sign on every day. AT&T cell service was spotty. Antenna and satellite TV worked well. They kept the park clean, and most days we were there they watered down the interior roads to keep the dust down. We camped at Amana Colonies RV Park in a Motorhome.

The Amana Colonies, Herbert Hoover Museum and Library. The old Capitol Building is in Iowa City, if you are interested; we saw it, but we were disappointed. Pearl Button Museum in Muscatine. If you make the trip to Davenport, see the Rock Island Arsenal. John Deere Pavilion in Moline, Il. Walcott, Ia has the world's largest truck stop, and the trucking museum is next door.

Roadrunner RV Park, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma

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

We spent the night in the new area of the park. The interior roads were all asphalt, and the site had a concrete pad, with a picnic table, and a small patio area. We also had a street light right by our site, which was nice and while it might bother some, it didn't bother us. The hook ups were easy to spot and easy to get connected. The Wi-Fi worked very well, as did our AT&T cell phones. The satellite and antenna TV got good reception. They have cable TV, which we didn't use, since we were only staying one night. The park was quiet and clean, and far enough from the highway that there was no road noise. We have already made our reservations here, for when we drive back through Oklahoma City. We camped at Roadrunner RV Park in a Motorhome.

Cedar Valley RV Park , Guthrie, Oklahoma

Date of Stay: April, 2017 - $18.00
Overall Rating:      

This was just an overnight stop for us, on our way back to Kansas City. The office person was friendly, and we were checked in quickly, with no problems. We had no problems finding the site or getting the hook-ups connected. Antenna TV, satellite TV, Wi-Fi, and AT&T cell service worked well. The interior road is paved, while the sites are mostly concrete with a dirt/gravel driveway. Most of the park appears to be long term residents, with a few sites in the front of the park for overnight guests. The park is about 6 miles from I-35, so there is no interstate traffic noise, but it does set off 0f OK-33 Highway, so there is a little noise from that.

This was our second time here. We use this park when we travel from to Albuquerque, NM. The people were friendly and checking in was quick, with no hassles. The interior roads and sites are all paved, with gravel between the sites. All the connections were easy to locate and it was easy to get connected. Satellite and antenna TV worked well. The antenna TV worked better than the park's cable TV. The Wi-Fi worked well, as did our AT&T cell phones. We camped at Oasis RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Route 66 RV Resort, Albuquerque, New Mexico

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

We found the navigation system for our RV didn't recognize the address, and tried turn us off of I-40 exit 149, instead of getting off at exit 140. Good thing we saw the sign for the park. Just a word of warning for others. We found that check in was fast, and the employees we dealt with were pleasant. The park is gated and fenced, with the office manned 24 hours. There is also a little store in the office area. The interior roads and sites were all paved. All the sites have the numbers painted on the pavement, so it easy to find your assigned site. We found that the sites are very spacious and long enough for our coach, the toad, and another vehicle. Each site has a fire ring, with a grill grate, a picnic table, and a patio. The antenna TV, satellite TV, AT&T cell service worked very good. The Wi-Fi is an open public network, which also worked well. The park has a swimming pool, which was closed for the season. There is also a club house, with a small library, a game room, a kitchen, an area to watch TV, and a small gym. They also have shuttle service from your site to the casino. This is one of the better parks we have stayed in, and we have already made reservations to stay there for Balloon Fest. We camped at Route 66 RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Kiva RV Park and Horse Motel, Bernardo, New Mexico

Date of Stay: April, 2017 - $15.00
Overall Rating:      

Check in was fast and easy, and the employees were pleasant and helpful. We were guided to the site. We found that the site was narrow, with all 4 of our slides out. There was a tree at the end of the site, on one side, which prevented us from pulling our rig up to the end of the site. If we had pulled to the end of the site, we couldn't have opened the front slide without hitting the tree. Also, due to the tree, we found that we couldn't walk completely around the coach. The hook-ups were easy to find and easy to get connected. The interior roads and sites were gravel and dirt, so when it rained, it was muddy. Satellite TV, Wi-Fi, and AT&T cell service was good. Antenna TV kept going in and out. Basically, this is a no frills park, good for a night or two. We would stay again, if in the area. We camped at Kiva RV Park and Horse Motel in a Motorhome.
