Riverbend Motorcoach Resort, LaBelle, Florida

Date of Stay: December, 2017 - $100.00
Overall Rating:      

Sites are owned so your experience will largely depend on how lucky or unlucky you are with your site and your rate. We paid for a lake view and realized how lucky we were, because "lake view" could mean "see a tiny corner of the lake" or "see the fountain in all its splendor". We had the latter. In fact, we feel we had one of the best sites in the park - while there were neighbors they were never there (TONS of privacy), right across from a walking path/bridge, view of the fountain, far enough in that there wasn't any traffic noise, far apart from the other side of the lake, pavers, wide patio. This park literally has everything. Wide roads? Check. Paved roads? Check. Fenced in dog park? There are TWO. Pool? Yup. Friendly staff? Absolutely. Store? Yup. In addition, you'll see they have clubs for everything here. If you happen to have a model stock car, they have a track. If you sail small remote boats, they have a club for that. It is very large so you can run/walk/bike and not go around and around in circles. It met most of our "everything we'd want to see in a park" with one huge exception: the location. It is way out there. People may tout how there are local restaurants in Labelle but not many and not exactly ones of culinary greatness. The nearest grocery store is Walmart about 10 minutes away, but to get to others its about 20 minutes. Fort Myers proper is a good 30-40 minutes away. That said, we'll most likely be back because of how beautiful the park is. We camped at Riverbend Motorcoach Resort in a Motorhome.

You are about 10 minutes from Walmart. If you have pets, drive a bit longer for a veterinarian than right around the immediate area. Fishing is allowed (believe it's catch and release).

Bluewater Key RV Resort, Key West, Florida

Date of Stay: November, 2017 - $115.00
Overall Rating:      

This park is worth every single penny you spend to stay here. There was so much to it. The biggest positive is the location. While you are not in Key West proper, if you rent a bay-side lot you'll be right on the water to fish, kayak, paddleboard, etc. We used the dock for yoga every morning as well. You are about 30 minutes from Key West proper but it doesn't feel that way. You are a good 15 minutes from any kind of shopping (15 minutes). Still, it won't matter. We loved using the outside living space as well. We think ours was one of the best (lot 77) with all the amenities they provided! The staff was amazingly accommodating and friendly. The sites were plenty big for our big rig. The only negatives was that the dog area wasn't fenced in and there's a designated dog area, meaning your dog has to "hold it" until you reach that area. We wouldn't hesitate to return here. What an amazing experience! We camped at Bluewater Key RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Make sure you make reservations for the restaurant Latitudes on Sunset Key. Make reservations well in advance and make them for the time of sunset. You won't be disappointed! A great place to rent kayaks and paddleboards is keyaks.

Lake City Campground & Resort, Lake City, Florida

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $34.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a campground that was either converted from a KOA or is darned close (the signage and coloring are almost exact). We arrived late but the people were still in the office, very nice folks. The office is open 8-10, then from 2-7, so if you call for a reservation leave a message.

It was a functional stop for us. The sites themselves were not very level and is partly grass but fine enough for an overnight stop. The coffee in the morning was a godsend! This campground seems to be a stop-through for most folks who stay there, at least in the front. There is a back part where there are some rundown rigs. Our fire pit was full of cigarette butts, but not something we used. We camped at Lake City Campground & Resort in a Motorhome.

Hitchin Post Corral and Campground, Cottondale, Florida

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $27.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a no-frills solid park. As others have stated, what makes this place so great is location and the hosts. They are probably the most personable folks we've encountered in our trips! Lots of grass and two dog parks for dogs (one for big pups and the other for smaller pups). Despite having a small dog we opted for the big dog park since our dog would've been able to easily hop the fence in the small dog park. Go here for an overnight stop, as many seem to do, and get your good night's rest. We camped at Hitchin Post Corral and Campground in a Motorhome.

Gulf State Park Campground, Gulf Shores, Alabama

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

We really enjoyed this campground. The sites themselves are huge. The campground office is open 24/7. Very convenient to pretty much everything. Wow, we thought, very happy to stay there. There were some issues though. They were doing some slow controlled brush burn right in back of us that was left smoldering, making breathing very difficult. One of the workers decided to start trouble for some reason but the ranger was ridiculously professional. Overall, we really enjoyed it here. We camped at Gulf State Park Campground in a Motorhome.

French Quarter RV Resort, New Orleans, Louisiana

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $110.00
Overall Rating:      

First, let me preface that we've had people tell us this park is similar to LVM (in Vegas) and Tiger Run (in Breckenridge). Perhaps why we were so disappointed because it's nothing like these resorts. This "resort" means "a flat, clean place in the middle of the city to park". It was covered in razor wire on the 8 foot fence, something we're told is fairly new (it is not for birds, as there is a park with a fence across the street and no such wire existed, nor were there bird problems there). If you go there for the location, they warn you not to walk anywhere past dusk (which kind of takes away from the location convenience). They had some gate issues so even with the wire, the gate was wide open for two of the days for the majority of the day. The staff in the office were the best part of this part. They were very attentive and friendly. The security at night was laughable. People were partying in the hot tub until 2:30 am and security did nothing until prompting (and after either a shift change or something). In reporting the problems the next day, the office staff indicated that they were having problems with the security company. The noise of traffic, air traffic, music, etc weren't a problem but these people were atrocious (they were guests and apparently they were looking at security footage to kick them out of the park, not sure if that happened). Inside, don't expect a resort. Expect a parking lot. A nice parking lot, but a parking lot. Our spot, #37, was extremely rare as it actually had bushes on it, giving us some privacy (although because of the location there was pool noise). No other site provided this. They have gazebos on some lots. I would not want to stay with the rig backing up to the fence, particularly nearest to Claiborne Street. When working, the gate access isn't available from your car so you need to get out, enter the code, run back to your car and drive in. This is not a resort but a safe parking spot in the middle of the city. We camped at French Quarter RV Resort in a Motorhome.

River Cities RV Park, Boyce, Louisiana

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

Stayed here for a planned two nights. Seeing as it was in the middle of nowhere, changed it to a day but it suited us fine. We didn't unhook but if you don't have food and such, you'll need to unhook as there's nothing nearby (we had enough in-house). There seemed to be a long-termers here. The park is self-sustaining. There isn't an office. Upon making your reservation, you need to prepay for your stay and they'll send you a code to enter. They are opening a new Loves truck stop down the road so that will be good to fill up and stop for food. The sites are gravel and there are very few amenities but for an overnight stop it was very clean and very convenient. Things are a bit tight entering and exiting with a large motorhome so just take it slow. You won't be able to reach the keypad for the gate from your larger motorhome so have your navigator run out and run back in. Wifi password is located in the bathhouse - it won't be in your confirmation email. We camped at River Cities RV Park in a Motorhome.

Bluebonnet Ridge RV Park, Terrell, Texas

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

This park was really good. Very long sites (pull throughs comprise most of the park) although sites are rather narrow. There are two sides to the park. When you drive into the long driveway, you'll see the long term part on your right. This is a much nicer area, many sites are owned, all sites paved, etc. We were told there's a 6 month minimum stay to stay there. The other part isn't as nice but fully functional. Sites are gravel and the roads are a little more beat up. Nice dog park, really good wifi. Package delivery was convenient. It is about 30 minutes from Dallas - we wanted something that was off of 20 near Dallas and this suited us fine. We camped at Bluebonnet Ridge RV Park in a Motorhome.

Oasis RV Resort, Amarillo, Texas

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

This is a larger park that definitely keeps bigger RVs in mind as far as roads and pads. Navigation is very simple and our site was a very level, large pad. We were on an end which was nice, although the "landscaping" was gravel, rocks and some sad trees. The fenced-in area for dogs was fine but the grass near the sign was more lush. The workout area was teeny. But, it sufficed for our needs and was convenient. We camped at Oasis RV Resort in a Motorhome.

La Hacienda RV Resort & Cottages, Austin, Texas

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $55.00
Overall Rating:      

We were very disappointed in this park. From the website and reviews here, I was expecting much more. It seems fine for smaller rigs but is not exactly big rig friendly. Many bigger rigs (40+ feet) you'll find rigs parked with wheels off the ground, including ours. The more level sites seem to be in the B section which is mostly long-termers. The alternate site we were given was more unlevel than the original so we opted to stay in the original site (which was unlevel everywhere). We tried 8 different spots within the pad without any luck in leveling. The office said they'd never had a problem with our space when I challenged "Has anyone been over 40 feet?" They conceded that they mostly have smaller rigs. They also conceded that they know some rigs that are larger have wheels off the ground. The roads are extremely tight. We were stuck getting to our site because someone parked on the road (luckily they came out after 2 minutes to move their car). Turns can be done but only if you are going 1 mile per hour. There are parking locations throughout the park making pulling out of our pull through space VERY tight. Two sewer hookups available. One is located on the pad itself so be careful driving. Internet is decent enough. The only true positives about this place is the front office staff, who are really attentive, and the dog park. The dog park is by far the biggest we've ever seen. It appears to be a baseball field converted into two dog parks, joined together by a gate but separate (great for dogs who don't like other dogs in their immediate space). It is maintained decently and lots of fun for your canine family members. We camped at La Hacienda RV Resort & Cottages in a Motorhome.

This park, for what it is, is very good. I wouldn't call it "nice" yet. They are working on it. It's a work in progress. All amenities are there, including fire pits, picnic tables, strips of land between each site, dog park, pool, et cetera. It's kind of a gravel and dirt pit right now but sites were level. Streets are wide and easily navigatable. Sites were easy to get into and out of. A good 1-2 night stop. VERY convenient to town/shops. We camped at Whistle Stop RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Raton Pass Camp and Cafe (Formerly Cedar Rail), Raton, New Mexico

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

Sites are extremely tight, but oddly shaped so you feel like you have room. Normally we'd rate campground lower for tight sites, but in those other campgrounds you feel like the safety of your rig is at stake, but not so here. Just take it slowly and you'll be fine. The hosts are extremely friendly. They are consistently working on the campground (not impeding in your stay, but always gardening, fixing, et cetera). We saw plenty of deer. The campground, if I were to use one word, is homey. This is a "no frills" park, but the stay is comfortable. Another reviewer mentioned a narrow hill to get to your spot - it is a hill and its narrowish, but perfectly navigatable with our 45' class A plus tow. You are 10-15 minutes from Trinidad, CO (Walmart, food) and Raton, NM proper (mom and pop food). Access to the highway is ridiculously convenient. While gravel, the stones are polished and there's enough grass for dogs. Wifi worked well for us, but Verizon is dead in this area (this is our hotspot servicer, not a problem since their Wifi was good). If passing through we wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. We camped at Raton Pass Camp and Cafe (Formerly Cedar Rail) in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Ask for sites 9-12 for views of the town/mountains. If you have a class A vehicle, you'll want to pull into these spots and will have the hookups on the wrong side, but extensions will make it possible. 15 minutes from Trinidad and/or Raton. DO NOT follow GPS. Coming from CO go off Exit 460, at the fork bear right and follow the blue campground signs. I was nervous about this before we did it but it is very easy as long as you follow the signs (there are 3 altogether).

Colorado Springs KOA, Fountain, Colorado

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $58.00
Overall Rating:      

This park is a mixed bag. It definitely is a commercial park. They try to get every bang for their buck by packing in rigs. We had a "deluxe" site, which was very long but very narrow. The pad was about 9.5 feet across, but that also includes sewer that sticks out of the pad, trees on both sides, bushes, etc. Even if you have a pull through, you need to be very aware of what surrounds you so you don't scratch anything if you have a big rig. The site itself is functional. You are very close to CO Springs. The splash park is amazing. If we had kids, this is where we'd stay no questions asked. It had water slides, a splash zone and full pool. This is a functional KOA, a bit tight, but functional. It is nicer than a Journey KOA but not somewhere we'd spend a lot of time on holiday, for sure. They had more grasshoppers than we've ever seen in our lives. The "river view" was a dam that you couldn't see from the site, but it's far from the road and nicer than some other sites. If you have a big rig, ask for a spot with no bushes/trees/rocks/sewer surrounding the immediate pad. Otherwise you'll take some time to park. We camped at Colorado Springs KOA in a Motorhome.

Cherry Creek State Park, Aurora, Colorado

Overall Rating:      

This park is amazing. The ONLY downsides: if you have a motorhome, you'll need to buy a pass for your motorhome. (The tow vehicle is free for as long as the reservation.) The entry and exit roads need serious repair. That aside, the sites are huge. The sewer was at the back of the pad so make sure you park appropriately if you have a motorhome.

The camphosts were ridiculously friendly and helpful, and the area was great. We took walks every day with our dog and she had a good ol' time. We would stay here again (if we can actually get a reservation!). Our camphosts were amazing. Their friendliness alone would make us want to come back.

Fort Collins / Lakeside KOA , Fort Collins, Colorado

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $45.00
Overall Rating:      

If you have kids, you'd want to come here. It is a kid haven, with playgrounds, bouncy houses, a huge slide and lake activities. We don't have kids, and for us it was suitable but not amazing as some have claimed this place to be. We had a lot of problems getting satellite and although the park was half-full, they couldn't find us another spot because they claimed a party was coming through on the weekend for one night. As you cannot reserve spots, my solution was "fine, give one of them this spot" (right next to the party, so they'd still be next to each other) and we'd take one of the other spots. We were told "no". I asked how that was possible since you technically cannot reserve spots...and never got an answer. The roads are paved and the grass is plentiful - but it is all crabgrass and full of weeds (not good for doggie paws). It was quiet at night, even on the weekend where the park fills up, and it was fine. However, we wouldn't go out of our way to go to this place again. "Fine" is how we'd describe it. We camped at Fort Collins / Lakeside KOA in a Motorhome.
