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. We camped at Country Manor Mobile Home Community (55+ Park) in a Motorhome.

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. 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.

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.

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.
