Hidden Hollow, Cottonwood, Alabama

Date of Stay: October, 2018 - $23.00
Overall Rating:

We came here in mid September and could not believe what we saw. A completely empty RV Park. All 78 sites were empty. This RV Park is completely open, no shade anywhere. They spent a lot of money building this place and got it all wrong. The big wide slabs have settling problems where the utilities were buried. As a result our left rear tires came off the ground. Not all pads have this problem, but a lot of the sites I could see from our site did. Rows A, C & E all have afternoon sun on the windshield and curb side. Rows B & D have morning sun. Beware the killer water pressure, even with our water partially open, the pressure built up enough to blow open the pressure relief value on our hot water heater. That was a first for us. This kind of water pressure is not acceptable in an RV Park. Reservations work on a 24 hour basis, so if you come in early make sure you leave early. OTA TV was fair. Wi-fi was very good, but there was no one else here. We camped at Hidden Hollow in a Motorhome.

Chiefland RV Park, Chiefland, Florida

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $15.00
Overall Rating:

Our 1 night stop was $15.26, PA plus tax. The place is still ok for a 1 night stop. No improvements since our last stay, but no problems. Expect to see all the old trailers and RV's that are not allowed into other places. Not a destination by any means, but there are not many other options along this big bend route onto / off the FL Panhandle. We camped at Chiefland RV Park in a Motorhome.

Rustic Sands RV Resort Campground, Mexico Beach, Florida

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $27.00
Overall Rating:

Rustic Sands is the better of the two options in outstanding Mexico Beach. MB still remains up in the top tier of our favorite FL stops. Our site was level, mostly shaded with 50 amp full hookups. All were excellent. No cable, but a few good OTA TV stations. It was nice to see the laundry room had been cleaned since our last visit. Nice improvements were also make inside the clubhouse. We will be back. We camped at Rustic Sands RV Resort Campground in a Motorhome.

KV'S RV Camping and Storage, Hartselle, Alabama

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

When we called on site availability the phone was picked right up. Upon arrival the office was closed and it was self check-in, no problem. We picked a site and setup. The sites are a bit rough around the edges and are not the most level sites. We had an outside rear tire lift off the ground which I do not care for. But for a one niter this place makes a great stop. There are actually a couple of gas / diesel stations at this exit. Neither the RV Park or stations are mentioned on the blue highway signs. Good fuel prices at the turn towards the RV Park. OTA TV and Verizon were both very good. We would stop again. We camped at KV'S RV Camping and Storage in a Motorhome.

Seven Points Campground COE, Hermitage, Tennessee

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $11.00
Overall Rating:

Our second stay here and it looks just the same. Could use some branch trimming here and there as we had branches hit our roof or side several times. Still a great value,is but site selection is critical. Most sites here start with a moderate to sharp grade and then a somewhat level pad area. This area varied in size making site selection important. We had site 51 which was one of the more level sites. Other sites more suitable for MHs are 1, 4, 10, 12. 14. 16, 43, 45, 47(ADA), 48, 49, 50, 52 and 53. There are other sites that will also work, but most were occupied making it difficult to judge. Small units and trailers have no issues here. We camped at Seven Points Campground COE in a Motorhome.

Best place to park when visiting Broadway is across the river by the Titans stadium. Right next to the foot bridge over the Cumberland River is a city lot that is low cost. The Honky Tonks on Broadway are a must visit.

Tween the Lakes Campground (formerly Exit 31 RV Park), Grand Rivers, Kentucky

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $27.00
Overall Rating:

New owners who are planning upgrades during the coming winter months. They do take reservations and payment can be made with PayPal. Easy access off of I-24 and a good location for visiting the Land Between the Lakes NRA. We had a nice long concrete pad that was wide enough to walk around the RV before putting our slides out. It was surprisingly quiet here, no road noise. OTA TV was good. The gas station it is located behind is big rig friendly with gas and diesel. We would return.

St. Peters' 370 Lakeside Park, Saint Peters, Missouri

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $37.00
Overall Rating:

First appearance here was very nice, but after setting up it is more like average. As you come in you see some concrete pads, but there are not many of them. Most of the sites are small stone and with what looked like ground up asphalt. Our site, 416, looked like it was ground under repair. Utilities were good, WiFi not so good. I can't see paying the extra $5 per night for what they call a premium site. On the pull thru sites an extra $5 works for a night or two but not on longer stays. But given the location, there really are not many other options and we would return. OTA TV was excellent. We camped at St. Peters' 370 Lakeside Park in a Motorhome.

Third Wheel Brewing has half price brews during HH on Fridays from 3 - 6. They have a good beer selection. There is a food window under different mgmt with very good burgers and other food selections available.

Smith's Fork Campground, Smithville, Missouri

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

Summer 2018, if coming in from US-169 to DD, the town is a mess of road construction. You will loop around on F and cross the dam before getting to CG. We stayed 1 night and were assigned a partly shaded pull thru with 50 amps. Nice level site on the outside of loop. Not the best of values given the location. Sites vary a lot here, but the host is pretty good about site assignment. OTA TV and Verizon broadband were both good. We camped at Smith's Fork Campground in a Motorhome.

Lancaster Event Center, Lincoln, Nebraska

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

Big open gravel lot with electric only. Use the main entrance and circle all the way around the left side of complex. The CG is in the right rear corner. Electric boxes are all padlocked so you need to make sure someone will be around to unlock one for you. We arrived during normal hours and had almost no wait for them to unlock one. They do have a dump station and potable water near the Exhibit Hall building. It was real muddy when we were here. This is an ok place to stop given its location being so close to Lincoln. We camped at Lancaster Event Center in a Motorhome.

Cody City Park , Cody, Nebraska

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $5.00
Overall Rating:

Located along the N Platte River in Cody Park are 40 FCFS sites. Not big rig friendly, but a couple of sites will handle units up to 40 feet. Expect to unhook if towing. Only 1 pull thru site, the rest are back in sites. No hookups, dry camping only. Bath house is available. Self register at the bath house. Works for a night or two. Good OTA TV and Verizon broadband.

Robidoux RV Park, Gering, Nebraska

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $24.00
Overall Rating:

Sites vary a bit here but overall most are outstanding. We had a really, really nice long level pull thru with 50 amp FHU's and cable. The site had a large concrete pad area, an integrated concrete patio with a large aluminum picnic table. Great service. Lots of breathing room here. The cable lineup was better than average. The cable uses a separate remote available only during office hours or from the Host by prior arrangement. Hook the cable up as normal, the 20 amp breaker must be on. Use your own remote to turn TV on/off/sleep, to control the volume and to set it to channel 3. Then you use the office remote for changing stations. The only real downside besides needing two remotes is that you can only pick 1 station at a time. Plus, the remote provided is a real PIA changing stations. We found it easier to change stations on our smaller bedroom TV. We paid the weekly rate of $165 for our site. We would not hesitate to come again. We camped at Robidoux RV Park in a Motorhome.

Fort Caspar Campground, Casper, Wyoming

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $38.00
Overall Rating:

I agree with the earlier review about this place being under rated. We paid the weekly Good Sam rate of $264 for a 50 amp FHU site with cable and wi-fi. Decent cable lineup of about 50 stations. The sites here have some breathing room. There is enough room to park your toad next to the RV. That was a very nice change from the places that pack you in. They allow RV washing if you ask. Great quiet location right near the N Platte River. Wi-fi was mostly very good. Yes it is a gravel lot, but it is level with decent sized sites. We had a problem with our front rooftop AC units fan breaking apart. We called Outlaw RV with great results. We camped at Fort Caspar Campground in a Motorhome.

Peter D's RV Park, Sheridan, Wyoming

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $41.00
Overall Rating:

Sites are really tight here. The electric post for the site next to us was less than 5' from us. Room enough room for a chair or two. Not the best of values at $285 for a 1 week stay with Good Sam discount. There is zero shade here and being down in a hollow it can get really hot here. The cable lineup is very limited at 12 stations, the 4 networks carried are all out of Rapid City, SD??? The hookups all worked fine and the place was clean. We would stop again, but not for a week.

Sheridan is blessed to have two very good local Breweries. BTB, Bear Tooth, and Luminous both have some very good beer. No food, but Food Trucks at certain times. Luminous' HH is 2 - 4, $1 off. BTB's HH is 4 - 6, 50 cents off. Head towards town, cross the tracks and take the first left. They are both down on the right hand side.

Absaroka Bay RV Park, Cody, Wyoming

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

We paid the weekly rate of $238 tax included for a 50 amp FHU site. We had a pull thru as most all sites here are pull thrus. They are not the most level of sites, but we could level. There was some up slope towards the front of the site, we kept our MH to the back of the site. The office did tell us to do so when we checked in. RV washing is allowed for $10, that is always a big plus for us full timers. We had OTA stations from both WY & MT here. Verizon broadband was very good. Wifi was also very good during our stay. Lots of things to see and do in the Cody area. Yellowstone is a long day trip, but the ride has some incredible scenery. Plus all the Cody stuff mentioned in earlier reviews. I wish we had stayed two weeks here. We would stay here again. We camped at Absaroka Bay RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Two breweries in town and several other places for a cold one. The Millstone was the better bet of the two for something to eat and a good cold brew. Pat O'Hara's seemed more like a place for the younger crowd, only two of their beers were on tap and it was not the kind of place that we like to eat at. Big open garage door to enter and lots of flies. The Irma Hotel and Saloon is also a very good bet and had some very nice mounts inside. It is a must stop while in Cody.

Wind River RV Park, Riverton, Wyoming

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $37.00
Overall Rating:

This place is a bit rough around the edges, but the hookups all worked well. Tight side by side hookups. If you have a neighbor they will be really close, pass the Grey Poupon please. This only happened 2 nights during our 7 night stay. Most sites are long level pull thrus. If you are in a MH, ask for a site that faces away from the storage building. That will keep the afternoon sun off your windshield. The laundry and rest rooms are fairly new and in very good condition. There is road construction in town, so call for directions for best route in. OTA TV was fair with 3 networks. Verizon broadband was very excellent. We camped at Wind River RV Park in a Motorhome.
