Warren Dunes State Park, Sawyer, Michigan

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

The location of the park is very nice and beach access is a fun tromp through the dunes; however, we were terribly disappointed in the space we were given. If you come here, be sure to drive around the park, mark down the spots that look interesting and then ask for those. We were driving a long way and really needed a nice place to rest before moving on the next morning. We took spot #164 as assigned and found it to be a spot that was absent-mindedly created out of a corner. There is a sign in your way, the bushes are thick and hog up the majority of the space and the spot isn't level. And, to top it off, the fire pit was full of gross trash from the previous campers. We were didn't realize until walking the other loop to take the dunes trail that other far more appealing sites were to be had. My Mr. was too tired from driving and didn't want to request a different site after he had already put down the jacks and got the AC running. I don't know if it was because the park employees try to get this spot "sold" first or what, but for $31 + $9 for the park pass is way too much for what we got. I highly doubt we'll stay at this park again, but if we do, I'll be far more picky about which site we get assigned. For the record, site #54 looks spacious, shaded and has 50 amp service. If it weren't for the nice dunes and the "better loop" I'd drive right by and never give it another thought. We camped at Warren Dunes State Park in a Motorhome.

The dune trails were lovely and the beach looked very nice. But you can take advantage of that for $9 and not have to stay at this park.

Kaskaskia Dragon RV Park, Vandalia, Illinois

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

Kaskaskia Dragon RV Park is a new park right along highway 70 and has only 12 spaces; all have full hookups with 50 amp service. Since we were just passing through and only needed a place to sleep comfortably for the night, I was searching for a good, freeway-close inexpensive park. We almost didn't stay at Kaskaskia Dragon RV Park because there were no reviews and I wasn't sure about the dragon part! But I called and felt comfortable with what I heard and with the person I spoke with so we decided to give them a try. And we're glad we did! The spaces are along a side road; they are all in a row and nicely graveled. Each space is back-in, has plenty of room and are long enough for a larger RV; ours is 34 feet. You go over to the hardware store to check in and pay. When you do, they give you tokens to put in the dragon so you can watch him breathe fire at the little knight in not-so-shiny armor. It's quite entertaining! Right across the street from the park is a liquor store, very clean laundromat, a dog wash facility, and a little car wash. We did our laundry. While the dragon might imply this is a great place for kids, it isn't really a kid's park. Although there is a nice big grassy area around the dragon. We had a very comfortable stay and would definitely stay here again if passing through. We camped at Kaskaskia Dragon RV Park in a Motorhome.

Sky City RV Park, Acoma, New Mexico

Date of Stay: September, 2015 - $18.00
Overall Rating:      

This was an overnight stop for us on our way home. We didn't expect lovely views or supreme camping; however, we did expect functioning full hookups, a level spot and a place where we felt safe to get a good night's sleep. We definitely had that!

The pad was level/gravel and there are no trees or grass. The park offers a free shuttle service to the local casino. We didn't use it but thought that was a nice perk. We asked for the "billboard" discount, which I read about in another review. That got us the same rate as a Good Sam discount.

We would definitely stay here again if traveling through. We camped at Sky City RV Park in a Motorhome.

Dancing Eagle RV Park, Casa Blanca, New Mexico

Date of Stay: September, 2015 - $10.00
Overall Rating:      

Truthfully, we didn't actually stay here. We planned to but when we arrived the smell of sewer was so strong that it forced us to leave. We tried to get over it. We parked and put down the jacks. There were other RVs and 5th wheel rigs in the small lot (all cement and surrounded by a ~5 ft block wall). We thought if they could stand it, we'd be okay.

But after about 15 minutes, we looked for someplace down the road even though we were bone tired. We ended up at a few miles down the road and were so happy we moved even though it was a bit more expensive. I'll pay...no problem! We camped at Dancing Eagle RV Park in a Motorhome.

Foss State Park, Foss, Oklahoma

Date of Stay: September, 2015 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

Cedar Point, which is in Foss State Park, is a beautiful campground right on the lake. We stayed here in site #1, which had a fabulous view, electric and water at the site, a nice level cement pad, a spacious grassy area, park bench and grill. There's a dump station on the way out, which we used.

The grounds are actually quite big and there are places for group picnics, a frisbee golf course, etc. A small marina is within walking distance and in the Summer a restaurant is open (we missed getting to try it out as it was already closed for the season).

It was a peaceful location. We'll return to this spot if passing through again. We camped at Foss State Park in a Motorhome.

The Red Barn Rendezvous, Edwardsville, Illinois

Date of Stay: September, 2015 - $35.00
Overall Rating:      

This was just an overnight stop for us on our journey home. I'm not a fan of typical RV parks and prefer state or county parks even if you don't have all the amenities. For this reason, I just rated this site as "Satisfactory."

The sites all have full hookups but they are VERY close together. The sites are paved and many are pull through, which is convenient. The park appears well managed and clean.

The location is not walking distance to any restaurants or other services. We camped at The Red Barn Rendezvous in a Motorhome.

Fisherman's Corner COE, Hampton, Illinois

Date of Stay: September, 2015 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

This was our first stay at an Army Corp of Engineers' campground and we were delighted! The campground host, Vicky, and her husband were super friendly and helpful.

The grounds are so nice and there really isn't a bad spot. Many, including ours (#5), had a lovely view of the Mississippi river. The campground is situated on the river with easy access to a beautiful bike trail, which we used.

The site had a level cement pad. There is electric at the site and some have a nearby water spigot. There's a nice dump station on the way out. We didn't use the bathrooms or showers, but I did look in the building and it appeared well maintained. We got great phone reception. We camped at Fisherman's Corner COE in a Motorhome.

Brush Memorial Park Campground, Brush, Colorado

Date of Stay: September, 2015 - $1.00
Overall Rating:      

Look, I marked this site with an overall rating of excellent not because the park itself is excellent (it's just okay), but because the value and convenience is definitely there.

Brush is a very small town in the middle of nowhere, Colorado. You would think that the town would maximize on revenue from the park...but they don't. They offer a really amazing service...first night free...thereafter, it's $20.

We stayed one night in September and were so grateful to have a place to plug in and escape the heat for the night.

The campground is directly across from their small fair grounds and the night we stayed the community was out for a local event. There was music in the air but it quieted down by around 9 or 10 in the evening. The trains ran all night, but hey...who complains when you can stay for free?

We were able to walk into town and get a bite to eat at a local sports bar. I wish I had written down the name. The people were friendly and because we didn't have to pay for the spot, we felt very generous with the server.

Overall, we would definitely stay here again if passing through. Thanks, Brush! We camped at Brush Memorial Park Campground in a Motorhome.

St. George / Hurricane KOA, Hurricane, Utah

Date of Stay: September, 2015 - $45.00
Overall Rating:      

We had planned to dry camp but it was far too hot to consider that so we found this KOA through RV Reviews. It was generally a nice campground. The pads were gravel; ours was somewhat out-of-level but we were able to set up our 34' motorhome just fine. Some of the sites are steep at the front and we saw people have trouble disconnecting their 5th wheels/trailers.

Some of the sites had nice big trees, grassy area and a picnic table. Our spot, #48, had some grass and a very small tree. No table.

The clubhouse looked nice and so did the laundry facilities, although we didn't use them...just walked through. There were some interesting old stone buildings from the old days to look at.

Despite being right off the freeway, it was fairly quite and we got a good night's sleep. We would definitely stay here again if passing through. We camped at St. George / Hurricane KOA in a Motorhome.

Shoreline RV Park, Eureka, California

Date of Stay: July, 2015 - $44.00
Overall Rating:      

There was a minimum of two nights or we would have stayed only one. The park is more like a nice parking lot with long drive-through spaces that can accommodate long rigs. However, the sewer hookup is very inconvenient. You either have to have a very long hose or wait until you're ready to leave to dump and pull forward.

The spaces are very narrow and have grass in between. The sprinklers come on so the grass is always wet making it hard not to track grass clippings in your RV. Our site was covered in bird droppings, that wasn't pleasant either.

The park is easily accessed from Hwy 101. Our spot was back from the road. It was cold so our windows weren't open and we weren't bothered by the road noise. The park manager, was very nice and helpful. He can give you good recommendations for places to eat/visit.

If you walk to the town of Eureka, which we did, you will pass a lot of homeless camping in the area. It is a very depressed town. While we were not bothered, I would not have felt comfortable walking to town by myself or at night. We camped at Shoreline RV Park in a Motorhome.

JGW RV Park, Redding, California

Date of Stay: July, 2015 - $44.00
Overall Rating:      

We were traveling home and looking for a place to stay overnight with full hookups and 50 amp service because it was blistering hot! Most RV parks were full because of the 4th of July holiday.

I read the reviews here and called. A helpful woman answered my call and said there was availability. We arrived to find a pristine, beautifully landscaped park. On our arrival we were greeted by a lovely woman who gave us a great drive-through space facing the river. The cement pads are level and surrounded by gravel so you aren't dragging your hoses through the dirt.

We walked along the river on a green belt with nice trees and lots of birds to watch. The park has picnic tables on the green belt for visitor use and a couple of fire pits.

We didn't use the bathrooms, showers, cable or wi-fi so I can't speak to those, but I would definitely recommend this gem to anyone who wants to stay in the Redding area. We camped at JGW RV Park in a Motorhome.

Elk Country RV Resort & Campground, Trinidad, California

Date of Stay: June, 2015 - $34.00
Overall Rating:      

We chose this park because I wanted to walk the beaches to look for agates and this park was near Agate beach. I have to echo many of the other reviewers' comments and only gave it an overall rating of 5 because of the Elk.

- The park is run down. What once was probably a beautiful property is certainly no longer worthy of the word "Resort."

- The woman who ran the office appeared confused and easily flustered.

- While the "wooded" section of the park was beautiful, half of it was occupied by full-time residents with run-down units.

- The field section was just that; a field. And while the Elk are amazing to see they leave poop everywhere so walker beware! (I posted a picture of the Elk grazing in and around the camping area).

On a positive note, we did have great reception with Verizon while our friend's AT&T service was nonexistent. And, we took a lovely 1 1/2 mile walk to the beach and did find a few agates.

If you want to see the Elk, which is spectacular, or walk the beach, this might be a good place to stay if you don't have too high of expectations for the park. We camped at Elk Country RV Resort & Campground in a Motorhome.

Vineyard RV Park, Vacaville, California

Date of Stay: June, 2015 - $49.00
Overall Rating:      

This was an overnight stop on our way to Oregon. The office staff was very nice and helpful.

The park is a mix of long-term "residents" and travelers. Overall, the park is maintained but it is older. The pads are dirt/gravel and ours was not level making it difficult to get the jacks set properly without the front tires of our 34' MH being well off the ground.

There are a lot of large trees making good shade, a big grassy area and a nice common area with bbqs and picnic tables under an arbor with grapes growing over it. The friends we were traveling with have a large dog and the park was quite dog-friendly.

We didn't use the bathrooms, showers, cable or wi-fi so I can't review those features. Overall, it was a decent place to stay but a bit overpriced for the location and age of the property. We camped at Vineyard RV Park in a Motorhome.
