Freeborn County Fairground, Albert Lea, Minnesota

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

Slopping grass field not to far from I-90. Good for an overnight stay. There are a few stanchions for electrical power which feeds the other sites that could be to far away if campground is full (like during the Fair). Other than that you most likely will not have to worry about it. All sites have water spigots and it looked like sewer too, but I didn't bother with the sewer. Camp host collected the cash fee. If it's crowded you may be on top of one another and if it's wet it may turn into a mosh pit. We camped at Freeborn County Fairground in a Motorhome.

Chief Joseph Park, Harlowton, Montana

Date of Stay: April, 2017 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

Was passing through so I stopped for the night. Nice rail trail takes you to the old railroad depot which has a display of railroad equipment. I was the only one in the park and there was no place to pay but lo and behold around dusk an older gentleman appeared to collect the nightly fee. This is also the towns fairgrounds. 30 amp electric only and portable water is available. Rained so there was a lot of puddles but the surface was hard. We camped at Chief Joseph Park in a Motorhome.

Kanab RV Corral, Kanab, Utah

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

Prior reviewer said it all. I'd like to add that the new owners are wonderful people. I had lost my wallet in Zion and I needed to print out copies of my lost documents, the owners where more than helpful allowing me to use there printer to replace my documents. We camped at Kanab RV Corral in a Motorhome.

Willie's Last Resort, Indianola, Mississippi

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

Willie's is a fairly new park located within walking distance to the BB King Museum. It's a no frills spot with level concrete slabs and full hook ups. Also within walking distance is a couple of restaurants and bar. It's run by a friendly local family that are more than helpful to answer your questions about the area, lots of history in the area especially if you are into the Blues. We camped at Willie's Last Resort in a Motorhome.

Travelers Rest RV Resort and Golf Course, Dade City, Florida

Date of Stay: February, 2017 - $38.00
Overall Rating:      

First off if you own a Airstream you probably know everything about this park, interesting history about how park was formed. Most campers here stay the whole winter so there is a real sense of community. Stayed at Oak View for a week. Residents and staff are very friendly, was greeted the next day by volunteer welcome committee with park information. This park is off in the boonies but you hardly ever need to leave they offer so much to do. Everything is super clean and modern. Salt water pool and hot tub, large laundry, good wifi speed. Caught a first rate comedy act on Sunday night, no extra charge! Will return. We camped at Travelers Rest RV Resort and Golf Course in a Motorhome.

John Prince Park Campground, Palm Springs, Florida

Date of Stay: February, 2017 - $32.00
Overall Rating:      

Everything SeaLandSky said was pretty spot on, except if your staying at the west end of the park where the airport is located. There is now a helicopter training school located on the airport grounds. Monday through Fridays the helicopters are doing maneuvers and hovering which at times can be extremely loud and annoying (no it's not because I'm getting older). So just be aware if your looking for some quiet you'll be disappointed. Come on the weekend or stay on the east side of the park it might be quieter there. Other than that it's a great park as others have alluded to. We camped at John Prince Park Campground in a Motorhome.

Hi Country RV Park, Whitehorse, Yukon

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $33.00
Overall Rating:      

I chose this park cause it was the closest to downtown Whitehorse.

Didn't use any of the facilities so I can't comment on them.

I have one major gripe about the park and that was it's power supply.

I had the 20 amp site and any time I tried to use the microwave or hot water heater the voltage would drop to 103 volts (I have a volt/amp meter on the system) and my Progressive Industries EMS system would trip out for protection purposes. If you don't have an EMS system no problem but beware low voltage could potentially damage electronic equipment. So to say the least if I'm back in the area I'll try a different campground and maybe I'll get more than a half hour free of wifi. We camped at Hi Country RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

If you use a electrical management system and stay at the 20 amp site and place a moderate load on it the voltage will drop to a point where the system will take you off line.

Whistlers Campground (Parks Canada), Jasper National Park, Alberta

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $32.00
Overall Rating:      

Nice wooded spacious campsites. Close to Jasper that offers all the tourist trappings.

Had full hookups and everything functioned the way it suppose to.

The park offers a nice trail that runs through the center, observed Caribou/Elk lounging about the campsites. We camped at Whistlers Campground (Parks Canada) in a Motorhome.
