We paid the Passport America rate of $16.50 a night for our two night stay. This is not an RV Resort and does not claim to be one, the hookups were good and sites were fairly level. We had no problem getting level, we did put blocks under the rear jacks, front jacks were on gravel. Hard packed gravel roads are bumpy, but no problems at slow speeds. We pulled thru an empty site and into a nice large grass / gravel site with a concrete patio and picnic table. WiFi signal was strong, but the bandwidth was pretty much maxed out during our stay. Usable, but not the best that we have had. Very friendly and helpful check in and we were led to our site. There is no cable here, they do have an antenna feed to the sites that works somewhat like cable. We picked up several networks and a weather station which was important as we fled the FL east coast when Hurricane Matthew was passing by. Very quiet at night. Anglers makes a very nice base for visiting Cedar Key. Overall we had a very nice stay and would not hesitate to return.

This was our 5th stay here and Mexico Beach remains one of our favorite places to stop in FL. The town still gets a solid 1o, but Rustic Sands is a bit off rating wise. The cable was off, we did get CBS and NBC plus a couple of PBS style stations OTA. The electric and sewer connections were upgraded a few years back, water and wifi were both good. But things are getting dated here and in dire need of upgrades and cleaning. The laundry room looks like it had not been cleaned for months. So we did not use them. But the place still is the better option in town.

We paid the Passport America rate of $22 for one night. That makes it a good value, but no way we would pay $44 for a second night. This place makes for a decent pit stop heading south. Cable lineup was pretty good, nothing special just the basic stations you get everywhere. We had a site in the first row facing US-231. As it was still hot, the AC's kept the highway noise down. But it could be an issue at certain times. The hookups were good and somewhat to the rear of the site. But we had no problems reaching them. The office help during check in was very good. Nice friendly office people here. We would stay again.

We paid the Passport America rate of $38.52 for 2 nights. Value and location are both very good. This is a large RV park and the site setup is not the best. Most of the 50 amp FHU sites are double ended pull thru sites and 4 sites share 1 electric / water shore connection. So they will be somewhat behind the RV. In the 50 amp area, all outlets are 50 amp outlets. The sewer for all 4 sites is on the correct side of the site. But the electric / water hookups will be on the wrong side for 2 of the 4 sites. PLUS, these sites will not have much of a curbside, just the neighbors sewer hose and shore connections. Pass the Grey Poupon please. The sites with the utilities on the correct side have a very large curbside and are very nice sites. Especially if the near site is empty. We had about 80' of grass on the curbside and less than 10' on the hookup side. If you are towing and do not want to unhook, you will need very long water hoses and power cords. OTA TV was fair, ABC and Fox were the only networks. The wifi was very good during our stay.

Our site was one of the nicest that we have ever had anywhere. We were in the small loop next to the outlet that has sites 12 thru 20. These sites are all on concrete pads and have 50 amp outlets. Our pad was at least 80 feet deep and double wide. The fire ring was integrated into the pad. You could park an 18 wheeler on the site. There is no bathhouse in this loop, but one is available nearby in the large parking lot. Verizon cell, broadband and OTA TV were very good. This loop has some of the nicest sites that we have seen at a COE CG.

CASH only at this Omaha City run CG. Tough call on rating this place. It was a dust bowl the day we arrived. Our toad had a layer of dust so thick we could not see out of the windows. I had to dump a bucket of water on the windshield before unhooking it. That was just from the drive in and locating a site. Lots of fast moving traffic within the CG keeps it dusty. After an afternoon of rain, things got much better. Sites are either RV sites or tent sites. The RV sites have red topped number posts, the white topped posts are tent sites. Sites vary from level to very sloped, the closer to the water the more level they are. These water sites come with plenty of geese droppings included. The site we had was filthy and the grass around it was long overdue for mowing. That was true of most of the sites. I also checked the men's bathhouse and it was pretty disgusting. Glad we did not need to use them. Being a FCFS CG, people start coming in during the week to pick their site. We came in on a Thursday afternoon and lots of sites had trailers on them that had been left earlier in the day. 30 amp electric was good for our four day stay. Water is available on the way in at the dump station and in various locations within the CG loops. The price and location here add to the value. The locals seem happy with things as they are. It is a nice cheap CG close to the city. But they really do need someone here to keep an eye on things. There is no excuse for people to come in and leaving the sites in such a mess. Hundreds of cigarette butt's littered the ground, beer bottle caps, etc. But the place works ok for a pit stop along I-80 in the Omaha area.

Date of Stay:

We paid the Passport rate of $18 for a 50 amp FHU site. We agree with the review that recommends coming down Colorado and parking on the street, it makes getting into the site easier. All hookups worked great. We did several loads of laundry while here and were happy with the machines on the south side of the bath house. Our Verizon broadband was good. The TV is a funny setup, but we did get stations when we were expecting nothing over the air. Overall a very good value and a nice stopping point off of I-70.

Casey's RV Resort

Elizabeth, Colorado

Date of Stay:

Casey's RV Hide-A-Way's street address is 4189 Highway 86, Elizabeth, CO 80107. If coming from the west, you will pass thru the town and the last traffic signal will be Hwy 86 and CR 17. The turn into the CG will be your second left, the first left is the day use section of Casey's Park. The entrance is paved for a few feet in, but due to fairly deep erosion it is a tight turn. The dump station is before you reach the CG loop, a somewhat long narrow tear shaped loop. Large rigs might have trouble making the full loop as it is a pretty tight turn back into the loop. Odd numbered sites on on the outside of the loop and the even numbered sites are in the loop. The electric and water are both good and up to date. This CG is in a rustic setting (you won't see or hear any mowers around here) and works for a few nights. Most units cannot dump and get back into the CG loop without leaving the Park or backing back in. Cell and TV were both good.

High marks for value. We paid the Passport America rate and had a nice level 50 amp full hook up, pull thru with Wi-Fi. Our Verizon cell and broadband were both excellent and TV via batwing was also very good. The wi-fi was very fast, since our stay here 3 years ago, they have upgraded the wi-fi and added repeaters to eliminate dead spots. The electric was good, the water so no good. As reviewed before make sure you use a filter or come in with enough in your tank. This RV park is what RVers need more of, a decent place at a reasonable price to spend a night or several at. They also have good weekly and monthly rates. They have completed the pool work since our last stay and it looks very nice. The new owners are super and we saw signs of improvement ongoing here. Lots of new picnic tables, many of the sewer connections have been set in concrete, young trees planted and other improvements. It is nice to see a place that puts money back into their business. We would gladly come back here.

High marks for value, we paid the cash price of $33.40 for 2 nights using Passport America. Power was fine, we did not need AC so we took a 30 amp, FHU, grass, pull thru site with very good wi-fi. Sewer connection was a bit uphill, but we have seen far worse. Just needed to empty the sewer hose before disconnecting it. This place is a bit rough around the edges, but everything works and the people here are nice. The hookups are side by side on a lot of sites. But we took the one right next to the entrance and had an empty field on our curbside. Overall a nice place to spend a night or two.

We paid $100.70 for a 3 night stay, 1 night with Passport America and 2 with Good Sam. We had a level, gravel pull thru site with 50 amp FHU's, cable and wi-fi. The cable was pretty much your basic lineup with a half way decent picture, not HD. This park made a nice base for visiting Mesa Verde NP.

Date of Stay:

Our second stay here, 15 nights this time. A great quiet location with very good utilities. As mentioned, the cable is a bit fuzzy but it is a very good lineup with HBO included. We had a nice shaded back in site on a concrete slab and did not need AC for most of our August stay. People here get a solid 10. The value is a bit off as they have gone up quite a bit since our first stay. Overall a great place to spend some time.

We came in on a Sunday afternoon in early August and had no problems finding an open site in Loop C. Most sites are fairly level, but some do have a bit of grade. Most of the double sites were taken by tent campers, but we had no problems with a single wide site. No over-the-air TV or cell phone reception at this NP. Nearest place for limited supplies is Torrey, about 10 miles west. Forget going east for anything. The campground hosts were right on top of things here. Just what we normally expect in a NPS campground. Deer are all over here, we had six mostly bucks show up one afternoon. We would come back if in the area. The only negative would be the very limited generator hours. 8 to 10 in the morning and 6 to 8 in the evening. It gets light at about 6, so waiting until 8 makes for a later start to the day.

Good value about sums it up at $20 a night after taxes added. We had a 50 amp full hookup somewhat level pull-through; our front left corner was pulled right up to a small bushy tree. When we called, we had asked about getting one of the bigger sites on the top level and were told they fill fast at the beginning of the season and then stay that way. He said that they have 'opened up' some of the sites on the lower level, but these sites are still tight as can be and are 15' x 55'. Some of these sites have a rail fence on between them making them extra tight. We were OK the three nights we had empty sites on both sides of us. But one night we had someone pull into the site on our curbside making things really tight. We could not walk around our RV without going into another site. It's that tight. They do have some wonderful 30 amp and water sites behind the office that nobody seemed to use. These sites are cheaper at $14.95 a night. You could have all the room you need in these sites, so if you don't have a 50 amp RV, it would be well worth checking out these sites. OTA TV was very good, the Wi-Fi was mostly very good. As long as you know what to expect, this place works as a base for visiting the local NPs.
