Seabreeze RV Resort (Military FamCamp), Seal Beach Naval Weapons Station, California

Date of Stay: April, 2018 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

Beautiful park nicely situated near many LA attractions. Sites were well-spaced and clean. The campground was quiet during the evenings. We appreciated the free laundry and ice. We didn't use the bathrooms, but they appeared clean and heard no complaints. There is a nice walking path near the campground. If you carry firearms, tell the gate guard, and they will coordinate with the armory to store your weapon and ammo upon entry. It will need to be stored in a California-approved locked gun box, of which there are many that comply. If not CA-approved, they may not store the weapon. Only 30 minutes from Disneyland, and close numerous beaches, including Sunset, Huntington, and Seal. Would definitely stay here again! We camped at Seabreeze RV Resort (Military FamCamp) in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Reagan Presidential Library is only 1.5 hrs away, and Nixon's Presidential is only 40 minutes away. Both were fascinating. For our family, it was cheaper to pay for the annual family pass then to pay for both libraries. It will get you into most presidential libraries for free that year, as well. Other standard LA tourists attractions are all within reach: Hollywood Walk of Fame, Disneyland, Mission San Juan Capistrano, Gruman's Chinese Theater, etc.

Oasis Palms RV Park, Thermal, California

Date of Stay: April, 2018 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

Nice park with friendly staff. Some traffic noise from highway 86, but it's not too bad. Well-located between Joshua Tree National Park and Anza-Borrego State Park. Clean sites were easy to pull-through. The pool was nice and refreshing during the 90 degree weather, and open 24 hours a day. There is a small pond where you can fish with no license. There is a game room with pool, ping-pong, a book exchange, and a community room. Supposedly during the high season, there are camp-wide get-togethers, such as soup nights, fires, etc. If we had been Passport America members, the price would have been discounted 50% (the only discount they do). The park recommended not drinking the local water, as it was over the levels of acceptable arsenic and chloride. We just bought bottled water to drink, and used the park water for showering. Very happy with our stay there. We camped at Oasis Palms RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Desert Eagle RV Park (Military FamCamp), Nellis AFB, Nevada

Date of Stay: March, 2018 - $22.00
Overall Rating:

Beautiful base campground with plenty of palm trees and shade. They are expanding the campground, so the new area may not have as much shade. Sites were easy to access and were level. Hookups were conveniently located. Good spacing between spots. Very clean, well-maintained park. It is not located on the main part of base. We would definitely stay here again.

Hole-In-The-Wall, Nipton, California

Date of Stay: March, 2018 - $6.00
Overall Rating:

Loved this beautiful, quiet park. Currently, potable water is at a minimum while they fix their water system. There are only a few spouts available, and no filling of RVs allowed. The dump station is still available. We managed the dirt road from the north with our 42.5' fifth just fine. We could have gone around and used the south paved entrance, but we were coming from the north. We took it slow and had no problem. I do wish the visitors centers would keep tabs on whether or not the campgrounds are full or not, before you make the drive all the way out to the campground. we were told that it would be "no problem," but we took one of the last two sites available, and watched many people come through and leave as it was full. The rangers do not monitor the campgrounds much, if at all. There is plenty of space between campers, and quiet hours are 7-7, which is nice. Incredible views of the mountains and stars. We would definitely stay there again. We camped at Hole-In-The-Wall in a Fifth Wheel.

Meteor Crater RV Park, Winslow, Arizona

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

Great park with friendly staff conveniently located by Meteor Crater and near Winslow and Flagstaff. We had problems with our electric pedestal not putting out 50 amps, and they got right on it and fixed it. Great dog run area with two separate fenced areas. Washing machines and dryers were reasonably priced (1.75) and were very clean. The game room had a book exchange, movies, free coffee, and a free foosball table. Discount on meteor crater tickets. The sites were level, lengthy, and clean. The gates provided security. Beautiful view of the mountains. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Meteor Crater RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Meteor Crater is worth a visit. In Winslow, go to the "Standing on the Corner" corner with the flatbed Ford. Additionally, do not miss a meal at the Turquoise Room in La Posada Hotel. The history of Fred Harvey and the Harvey Girls makes this stunning adobe hotel come to life with the stories of yesterday and the conveniences of today (watch Judy Garland in "The Harvey Girls" first). In Flagstaff, there are many things to see, such as Walnut Canyon, Sunset Crater, or the historic downtown.

Pima County Fairgrounds, Tucson, Arizona

Date of Stay: March, 2018 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

Thank goodness for Pima County Fairgrounds. We had hoped to get onto the Davis-Monthan FamCamp, where they didn't take any reservations. However, it was full, and we were in the area too long to want to dry camp there. Then began the perplexing search for an RV park that took a family under the age of 55, that was affordable. We found the fairgrounds and were so happy that there was room. Upon arrival, we found that the fairgrounds has a ton of sites, with room even during the weekend when there was a fair on-site. Additionally, they have a reasonably priced storage lot, which we took advantage of when we decided to do a quick side-trip without the trailer. The campground is really just a big gravel parking lot, but the hookups were excellent, the hosts very friendly, and the price extremely reasonable ($50/night less than one of the other "family-friendly" parks). The park has a security guard that monitors each vehicle's entry, so we felt safe at night. It is far enough out of town that we could see the stars, and hear the haunting songs of the coyotes. Easy in and out--the roads are simple to maneuver on, even with our 42.5' fifth. The office has a book exchange, which I always appreciate. We gave the park a 7 (versus a higher rating) based only on the lack of aesthetics...otherwise it was a great park. We would definitely return. We camped at Pima County Fairgrounds in a Fifth Wheel.

We enjoyed the Tombstone gunfight and lunch at the Crystal Palace. In Tucson, we visited the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum, hiked in Saguaro National Park, and attended Mass at the San Xavier Mission. Do not miss out on the incredible food from the vendors at the mission parking lot--the Indian Fry Bread Tacos, the handmade paper-thin giant tortillas cooked over the fire--all absolutely delicious. Finally, do not miss the DeGrazzia art gallery.

Bottomless Lakes State Park, Roswell, New Mexico

Date of Stay: February, 2018 - $18.00
Overall Rating:

The way the sites are situated, you hardly see your neighbor. The area is quite barren, but the lakes are beautiful. If you have a big rig, check with the host on the easy way to get out of the park--another RVer got stuck taking the road by the lake. It's better to go the opposite way (host will describe). Our site was back-in, but there were a few pull-throughs in the park as well. Beautiful dry-camping is available near the other sinkholes. We camped at Bottomless Lakes State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Davis Mountains State Park, Fort Davis, Texas

Date of Stay: February, 2018 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

Pretty park near McDonald Observatory and Ft. Davis. The free internet hardly worked our entire stay, nor did our hotspot or cellphones. You can drive up to the top of the mountain for cell phone connectivity. Many spots were private, although ours wasn't as private. Full hookups made life easy after our recent dry camping. The sewer drains were high off the ground, which made draining a challenge. We would stay here again. We camped at Davis Mountains State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Rio Grande Village Campground--No Hookups (NPS Campground), Big Bend National Park, Texas

Date of Stay: February, 2018 - $14.00
Overall Rating:

We loved this park. It was quiet, dark, and perfect for star-gazing. Generators were only allowed from 8 to 8, so things became very quiet. The sites were well-spaced, with plenty of room between trailers/tents. Most importantly, you cannot beat the location. Down the road there was an option for a full-hookup campground, but we are so glad we rolled the dice and went for this campground. It made the Big Bend experience that much more authentic. There are no showers here, but you can fill up your tanks prior to setup. In the campground, there is a beautiful nature walk--be sure to get down to the river and up to the top of the mountain nearby for the sunset. We camped at Rio Grande Village Campground--No Hookups (NPS Campground) in a Fifth Wheel.

Overall Rating:

Spacious level sites, conveniently located right in San Antonio. Laundry was clean and new (1.50 each to wash and dry). Office has some supplies for sale, as well as a big book exchange library. The price and safety of staying on base makes this a great campground. Friendly staff and camp host. Lots of base construction and road pattern changes/gate closures, so its best to call ahead to find out the best way on to base.

Corpus Christi RV Park FamCamp (formerly Shields Park NAS Recreation A, Corpus Christi, Texas

Date of Stay: February, 2018 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

Beautiful park right on the water with the safety and security of base. Sites are wide enough that you can park your vehicle next to your rig. Interior roads were easy to maneuver, and there were no obstructions to hinder backing into sites. Laundry is FREE. Additionally, within walking distance, at the Navy Inns and Suits is a Community Center, where you can reserve a theater room and play one of their DVDs on the big screen, complete with popcorn that they pop for you, all for free. There is also a game room, and video game room with games for the kids to check out. This was a huge hit for our kids. There are a lot of full-time residents in the park. There are actually two sections of the park, on either side of the road. The Famcamp office is at the Marina. Easy to get through the main gate with even a big fifth wheel like ours. No shade at all, so I'm sure it will get hot in the summer. We would definitely return. We camped at Corpus Christi RV Park FamCamp (formerly Shields Park NAS Recreation A in a Fifth Wheel.

Lazy Pelican RV Park, Crystal Beach, Texas

Date of Stay: February, 2018 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

We searched hard for a park that we didn't have to pay an arm and a leg for in the Galveston area. The Lazy Pelican fit that bill. What we didn't know was that the park is owned by two of the nicest people you'll ever meet. It's a small park, just a quick walk from the beach. Laundry is located in a trailer, and is...get this...FREE. Two large washers, two large dryers, all in impeccable condition. There is also a book exchange. To get to the park, you can either drive around, or take the FREE ferry from Galveston. We ended up driving around with our trailer, although we could have fit our 42.5' fifth on the ferry. Depending on your destination, the ferry may or may not be quicker. The ferry ride is short, and only one time on our day-trip to Galveston did we not fit, thus having to wait for the next ferry. They usually have three ferries going at one time, so even if you miss the ferry, another is right behind. On the day of our checkout, we had a medical emergency, and the owner worked with us and the incoming people to ensure we didn't have to worry about moving our trailer instead of getting our son to Urgent Care. All ended well, and we stayed the extra night and left the next day. The turning radius in the park can be a bit tight, but we made it work with our big fifth wheel. We would definitely return. Great place! We camped at Lazy Pelican RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Timber Ridge RV Park, Bryan, Texas

Date of Stay: February, 2018 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

The park itself is nothing to look at...like a parking lot with small strips of grass between them. However, it is super easy to get in and out. All sites are leveled off, so you just have to pull in and set up. Most sites are pull through as well, and the pads are well maintained, wide, and very long. We were only here two nights, so it suited our needs. We are generally more "state park" type people, but we wanted to tour the Bush library and look around the area, and this made Bryan/College Station easily accessible. They also didn't charge extra for our 3 kids, which is a huge cost-saver for our family. Laundry is 2.00 to wash. They pick up trash at your site, and will actually pick up your propane to fill as well. Friendly staff. No fires allowed in the city, so no fire pits. Also no picnic tables. This park gets insanely full during football season, so take that into account. One site is as good as another, as they are all the same. You will hear traffic from the street, but it does quiet down somewhat at night. This is not the park to sit outside and enjoy nature. But if you want a park in the city, this is your park. We camped at Timber Ridge RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Cedar Hill State Park, Cedar Hill, Texas

Date of Stay: January, 2018 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

This is a beautiful park. We had a beautiful view of the lake from the north campground. During our stay, the park suffered a water main break, due to construction in the area. We ended up not having water for the majority of our stay, which was not their fault. The park staff, however, was not very knowledgeable with the situation, and we got different stories from different workers (how long they would be out of water, whether water needed to be boiled once it came on, whether they would call us when we could use water again, etc). The pads do need some updating, as the asphalt is beginning to crack. Most sites were not level without adjustment. Because of the water problem, we used the bathrooms in the south area. The bathrooms were old but clean, and the showers were nice and hot, with excellent water pressure. No problems with cell reception at the park. This park is just south of Dallas, but it felt like we were in the wilderness, which is what we love. An excellent price for being near a big city! We camped at Cedar Hill State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

The Landing Point RV Park, Cape Girardeau, Missouri

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

This was a good stop along the way, although we felt the park could have been picked up better. There was trash on the ground, but it was single-digit weather, so perhaps the staff just stayed inside that week, for good reason. The showers were poorly designed. There were 3 showers for the entire park (unisex), but only two rooms that lock from the outside. One shower had its own room, but the other room had 2 showers and a toilet out in the open. The setup for that shower room, as a result, would only be for family-members sharing it. Given the setup, the room containing 2 showers was often used by a single person, who would lock the door, basically taking the shower situation down to only 2 for the whole park. Our pull through site was easy to get in/out and fairly level. The price was reasonable, and the staff was friendly. We camped at The Landing Point RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
