Sky Ute Casino RV Park, Ignacio, Colorado

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

We paid the Passport America rate of $19.50 plus 3% lodging tax for a 50 amp FHU site with very good WiFi. The site was paved with concrete liners and curbing. It was double wide at the rear for toad parking and had a nice concrete patio area with a picnic table. As mentioned it is a bit tight for toad parking, but better than a lot of other places. Overall a very well designed layout. We had pretty good OTA TV when we arrived on a weekend. But it was a bit more fuzzy on weekdays. Verizon cell and broadband were both very good. We camped at Sky Ute Casino RV Park in a Motorhome.

The Casino is allows smoking and it was pretty bad on the weekend. We went in again during the week and it was not as bad. There is a sports bar inside just off the casino. BSB (Bottom Shelf Brewery) is a good bet for a brew and to eat. Take a left on 517, then right on 516 back to Bayfield.

Riana Abiquiu Lake COE, Abiquiu, New Mexico

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $8.00
Overall Rating:

We agree with the earlier review on this being a great COE campground. As mentioned the women hosting is wonderful. We called the day before we arrived and she said if we got here early we would probably get an electric site. Which we did, site 2. We did not pickup any OTA TV, but our Verizon cell and broadband were both very good. When coming in, pull up to the booth as it is not always staffed. The host is probably to your left and directly below. It is a steep grade coming in and not something you want to park on. The CG in general is on a fairly steep side hill dropping down to the lake and sites can vary. In the Pedernal Loop (E & W), sites 2, 3, 5, 11, 12, 13, 14 & 15 are mostly level and good for MH's. In the no hookup Chama Loop sites 18, 19, 23 & 24 looked pretty good. If your over 32' I would avoid the Puerco Loop which is just past the dump station. The dump station looked like it could be fairly tight for larger RV's. We did not try it. Overall we had a very nice 2 day stay and would return. We camped at Riana Abiquiu Lake COE in a Motorhome.

The Echo Amphitheater can be seen in an hour or two and is worth a visit. The Christ in the Desert Monastery is down a 13 mile narrow dirt road. The road is classified as 1 lane with pull outs for passing. It is an interesting drive into the canyon and the road was in pretty good condition when we drove it. Figure on 45 minutes to an hour just for the 13 mile drive each way. The Ghost Ranch was closer to Hwy 84 on a really bad gravel road. But there are some very good hikes to be had there.

Cadillac Ranch RV Park (formerly Amarillo West View RV Park), Amarillo, Texas

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

We paid the cash rate of $25 per for a 50 amp FHU. It makes for an ok pit stop when traveling I-40. Limited number of 50 amp sites available. The RV portion of the park is definitely rough around the edges. But everything worked, the sewer did drain slow at times. WiFi was pretty good for us, we were at the end of a row next to the bath rooms. The site surface is mostly large stone, 1.5 - 2", over gravel and mostly level. Can be hard on the feet. If there is no one around upon arrival, check the gift shop. Not a destination stop, but ok for visiting Palo Duro Canyon and stocking up on supplies as there is pretty much 1 of everything here. We camped at Cadillac Ranch RV Park (formerly Amarillo West View RV Park) in a Motorhome.

The Texas Firehouse Sports Bar on Coulter near 34th has a great HH. M - F 4 - 7 $1.50 domestic pints, very good pizza & Philly's too. Wells are $2.50 & $3 house Margaritas. Long Wooden Spoon has some good beers. They do not serve food but once a week or so they have a food truck.

Wichita Bend RV Park, Wichita Falls, Texas

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $17.00
Overall Rating:

High marks for value. This was our second stay here, sites here are so level we did not bother to use our jacks. We were in the middle row that has shared electric boxes, 50, 30 & 20. So our site #15 had the 50 amp, the site next to us would have had the 30 amp. A great easy off, easy on RV park when passing thru the area. I don't believe the earlier review about 'sketchy people' walking thru the park, it is possible though. That reviewer has 1 review, so I wonder if he owns a park nearby. OTA TV was very good. There is a suspension bridge across the river to a nice walking trail that goes along the river. We camped at Wichita Bend RV Park in a Motorhome.

US-287 Business has lots of options for a cold one. Wichita Falls Brewing in town has a couple of good beers, but no food. The Water Hole is a local place with good prices and people. Across the street is a new, old place now called O'Briens. Good prices and nice and clean. Avoid the Silver Dollar Saloon unless you like over paying for a well drink.

Hickory Creek COE, Lewisville, Texas

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

We came in mid week without a reservation, but we had checked that morning and had a list of available 50 amp sites open for 3 days. The wonderful women working at the entrance booth recommended site 87 to us and it was a fantastic lakeside site. We had a great breeze off the lake and could actually sit outside during the day. Temps were hitting 97 during our stay. Like many COE campgrounds, the sites vary big time. Check details on the reservation site (which does not describe grade) so a partial A list for MH's are 13, 14, 16, 18, 20, 26, 34, 48, 52, 60, 74, 79, 83, 85, 87, 88, 89, 97 & 99. Some B sites that will also work are 1, 3, 28, 29, 37, 43, 47, 50, 51, 54, 55, 64, 65, 81, 82 & 90. Smaller and towed units have much more options. OTA TV and Verizon were both very good. We camped at Hickory Creek COE in a Motorhome.

Not much around in the way of a good local watering hole. We tried 3, Walter's is nearby and is a complete dump. Lake Dallas Point is a much the best option and has very good food, but it is a smoking bar so be warned. Tornado Alley Pub is non-smoking, but was not a place we would order food at.

Miss Ellie's RV Park, Waskom, Texas

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

Prior reviews are spot on. We had a nice long level pull thru and only connected to electric and cable. Great service. We were stuck on I-20 after a fatal accident shut down the highway. Miss Ellie was going to block a site with cones for us, but we made it just before closing. After arriving we were led to our site, a nice long pull thru as we did not want to unhook for our 1 night stay. We would come back. We camped at Miss Ellie's RV Park in a Motorhome.

Campgrounds of the South, Gulfport, Mississippi

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

Decent value for a full hookup pull thru just off of I-10. An older park, but all utilities were in good working order. Concrete slabs are level, but are heavily cracked. Overall not a bad stopping off point when traveling I-10. OTA TV was ok. We camped at Campgrounds of the South in a Motorhome.

Savannah Oaks RV Resort, Savannah, Georgia

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

We paid the FMCA discount rate of $40 per night for a 50 amp FHU pull thru site with cable and wifi. The site was long and very narrow with a stone pad. A small strip of dirt and grass separates the sites. I was going to give this place a bit higher rating until the guy with the mower showed up. I could not believe it. The discharge chute was fully open with no deflector cover of any sort. From 2 sites away the guy hosed down the side of our motor home with the mower discharge. The discharge was not just grass either, It was acorns, sticks and other debris. Completely unacceptable. I probably would have rated the place a 5 or 6 and as just barely acceptable, but the mower completely changed that. This place is way overpriced and we will never return here.

Overall Rating:

We paid the Passport America rate of $19.44 per night for a 50 amp full hookup pull thru site with good wifi. Bass Lake makes a great stopping point when traveling I-95. We have stopped here several times and have never had any problems. New for this stop is an electric gate that gets closed at night. So if you are arriving late make sure you call ahead. OTA TV reception was good. We camped at Bass Lake RV Campground in a Motorhome.

Ashaway RV Resort, Bradford, Rhode Island

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

We paid the Passport America rate of $29.50 per night for a 50 amp FHU pull thru site with cable and wifi. Good value with Passport America, but I don't think I would pay full price. The site was mostly level, but did have some grade at the back end of it. All utilities were good, cable lineup had 32 very clear stations. Wifi was very good with a computer, but our Galaxy smart phone did not care for it. Office staff was very nice and helpful. We came in early as we had just left a 9 am service appointment in nearby CT. The staff was great in accomadating us. They do have gated access here, so you will need a refundable $20 for the access card. As mentioned before, the only real complaint here is that the roads can get very dusty. We would return again if in the area. We camped at Ashaway RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Mohegan Sun Casino, Uncasville, Connecticut

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $1.00
Overall Rating:

The parking area, Turtle Lot RV, is for RV's only. There are signs pointing the way. Over sized vehicles have a separate lot. We kept to the far side of the lot away from the river and had plenty of space. The river side of the lot gets a bit tight at times. The lot has a bit of grade, but plenty of spots are close enough for the jacks to do the rest. OTA TV was ION type stations only. We camped at Mohegan Sun Casino in a Motorhome.

Twin Mountain Motor Court & RV Park, Twin Mountain, New Hampshire

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $36.00
Overall Rating:

We paid $36 per night for a 30 amp FHU pull thru site with cable and wifi. The utilities are somewhat dated, but everything work ok. The sites here are all very level and are layed out like a bunch of Y's. You drive up the middle and then pull into the left side or right side, 9 sites on each side. Odd numbered sites are on the left, even number on the right. Both sides end up facing into the woods for some added privicy. The road loops around all of the sites making getting in and out very easy here. The cable lineup was pretty much a basic lineup, but has networks from the Portland, ME area and Burlington VT / Plattsburgh, NY areas. The wifi was incredibly slow, I first connected at 1 Mbps and gave up. The best speed I was able to get was 5.5 Mbps very early in the am. Our Verizon broadband and cell phones were good. Overall a nice place to base your visit to the mountains from. We camped at Twin Mountain Motor Court & RV Park in a Motorhome.

Twin Mountain does not have much in it, mostly motels and RV parks and a family restaurant. Best bet during the summer months is the Woodstock Inn & Brewery on US-3 just north of the Kancamagus Hwy. They have daily happy hour from 3 - 5 at the bars with $4 pints and half price appetizers.

Stony Brook Recreation and Camping, Hanover, Maine

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $21.00
Overall Rating:

We paid $21.25 a night, which was the Passport Rate of $19.50 plus tax. First impression here was that the place is a bit rough around the edges. But we were pleasantly surprised once we pulled into our site and setup. Sites 41 thru 58 are in an open area and are mostly level pull thru sites with 50 amp full hookups and cable. The cable lineup was pretty limited which was nice as we did not have to scroll thru all the normal crap you get. No ESPN, but they did have NESN and the weather channel. The wifi was so so, at times the connection kept dropping making it unusable. But 2 of our 3 mornings here it was ok. The site was mostly gravel with a high sand content, so it got a bit messy after it raind. It also had a nice picnic table with some hanging flowers on one end. Interior roads are rough gravel, but we had no problems getting in or out. The office doubles as variety store and also serves food at very reasonable prices. We would gladly come back next time we are in the area. We camped at Stony Brook Recreation and Camping in a Motorhome.

Sunday River Brewing is just down the street and has several good beers. We also had a pizza there one night and a calzone on our second stop. More than enough for the two of us both times and we took almost half of them home. It is a bit pricey, $5 pints and $15 for the calzone, but that's pretty much to be expected in ski country. Gorham, NH is about a 30 minute drive away on US-2 and has much more options, a State Liquor store, Walmart, etc.

Chignecto North Campground (Parks Canada), Fundy National Park, New Brunswick

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $37.00
Overall Rating:

We paid $36.58 US for one night, this included the reservation fee of $12.50 CA. We were in the big loop of electric and water sites. Our site was described as level and it was mostly level. It did have some front to back slope, but compared to other sites is was much more level. So it is all relative I guess. We were only able to stay 1 night, there was simply no availability here in early August. You really need at least 2 nights to see both high and low tides. I was concerned about a previous post mentioning low branches. The road into and the main loop with our site in it was very good. We did not come anywhere near hitting branches. We would stay again, but only if we could stay longer. The road in, 114, from the highway is pretty rough. One thing I noticed here was people dumping their gray water on the ground. I did not see anything about it in the rules, so maybe they allow it. We camped at Chignecto North Campground (Parks Canada) in a Motorhome.

Elm River RV Park, Glenholme, Nova Scotia

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

We paid $50 per night for a really, really short pull thru. We could not actually pull into it, we needed to back up first. Site was more suitable for something small, like a class B or a small C. We had called a couple of days before our stay and probably got the last available site. Too bad the place wasn't full as we would have stayed somewhere else. Our site, site #1, was without a doubt the worst site here. They practice dust control, but only on the road coming into and a bit past the office. Once you go around back to where the sites begin, dust control ends. We were in the very first site you reach. The road splits here and goes both behind and in front of this row of sites. There is also a side road right across from us. As a result we were in a dust bowl as traffic was passing in all directions. It was very busy here, this RV park is also a caravan stop. One arrived right after we did and we were covered in dust within minutes. A lot of traffic was generated by workers zipping back and forth to park the caravan. Some of the larger RV's were coming very close to us making the turn in front of us. You could see where the grass was worn down by RV's that could not make the tight turn. . It was good that we were charged extra for 50 amps, we could not open windows because of the dust and we had to run our AC's non stop. The water pressure was bad and we needed to use our pump to take showers. Electric connection was old and worn, but the voltage was ok. We had 1 OTA TV station. We did not pay for the wifi, which was good as we were here during the big phone outage that hit this part of Canada. They do have some nice sites here, but it looked like the caravans got them. Not a place we would return to and were happy to leave the place. We camped at Elm River RV Park in a Motorhome.
