Thousand Trails / Medina Lake, Lakehills, Texas

Date of Stay: April, 2018 - $1.00
Overall Rating:

This was hard to rate- loved our wooded private full hookup site and yet the park is really run down. The surge protector kept blinking "warning", an old grill was left on the site, lights falling apart going to the office, office carpet dirty, picnic tables warped and broken. It has seen better days overall and yet we would definitely come back for the sites. There are two areas- one area by the lake and the other area closer to the office in a wooded section. We like the one in the wooded area best as the sites are father apart and more spacious. It was a lot like being in a state park but with full hookups! We camped at Thousand Trails / Medina Lake in a Motorhome.

The roads to get to the park are hilly and curvy. Stock up before getting there as it is a bit of a drive to get anywhere. 45 minutes from the Alamo and Riverwalk. Both well worth the drive.

Rio Grande Village Campground--No Hookups (NPS Campground), Big Bend National Park, Texas

Date of Stay: April, 2018 - $7.00
Overall Rating:

Beautiful campground with a lot of campsites suitable for tents, trailers, fifth wheels and motorhomes. As the sites vary a lot, I suggest using the government reservation web site and Google Earth. May need to maneuver larger rigs around trees. Generator hours are 8am to 8pm. They have dishwashing stations which are great for saving water in fresh water and holding tanks. There is a great Nature trail off site 18 to see the Big bend in the Rio Grande river and the Mexican Village across the river. If in need of full hookups, the Rio Grande Village RV park next door keeps 5 sites first come, first serve. We camped at Rio Grande Village Campground--No Hookups (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

Big Bend is HUGE! Plan on driving 20-60 miles to get to any of the sites. The scenery is spectacular from desert to evergreen covered mountain top. The park headquarters is 29 miles from the entrance and campground another 40. Chiso mountain is worth the drive.

Rock Hound State Park, Deming, New Mexico

Date of Stay: April, 2018 - $14.00
Overall Rating:

Beautiful, well maintained, landscaped and clean state park. Best camping site ever! The sites are huge, have water and electricity. They are spaced well apart from each other and feel very private. They are literally landscaped with rock hedges, cactus and small mesquite trees. The picnic tables all have Ramada's for shade. Outstanding! A little bit of a treck along somewhat narrow black top roads but so well worth it. We camped at Rock Hound State Park in a Motorhome.

Butterfield RV Resort & Observatory, Benson, Arizona

Date of Stay: April, 2018 - $21.00
Overall Rating:

Very well maintained park. Sites, while lined up next to each other do have an area of gravel rock separating them. Clubhouse, swimming pool, laundry, library as well as the grounds were immaculate. After spending the winter season in the desert it was nice to have pine trees at each site. Added bonus was the observatory program offered free to guests. Lots of information and fun to see the stars through the telescope. The program was a bit long but well worth it. Got to see Jupiter and its moons! We camped at Butterfield RV Resort & Observatory in a Motorhome.

13 miles from Kartchner Caverns State Park, rated number one for cave tours in the USA. Make reservations ahead of time! About 35 miles to Tombstone. Fun touristy town with emphases on the Gunfight at the OK corral and stagecoach rides. Rode in an authentic Butterfield Stagecoach from the 1800's.

Loved Kartchner State Park! Sites are well spaced apart with Mesquite trees between. Can hardly see our neighbors! Restrooms and Showers are immaculate! Park is well maintained. Easy to navigate roads. Cool at night even in April. We camped at Kartchner Caverns State Park in a Motorhome.

Kartchner Caverns are rated number one in the US. Have two different cave tours- Big Room and Throne room. Big Room shuts down April 15 for six months to allow returning female bats to return from hibernation, hang around and give birth. Amazing formations! Tombstone is around 30 miles from Kartchner and is a fun touristy way to spend the day and $$. First time riding in an authentic stage coach!

Quechan Casino, Winterhaven, California

Date of Stay: April, 2018 - $1.00
Overall Rating:

Free RV parking! Large parking area with a number of RVs. Individual RV parking areas are marked off by short sand hills. There were a number of people running generators but not over whelming. As it is close to the border Helicopters flew over area constantly during the day and early evening, Near the Mexican border and the entrance to Los Algodones.

Las Colinas RV Park (55+ park), Eloy, Arizona

Very clean, nicely landscaped, well maintained RV park. Lots of trees, shrubs and cactus. Sites were immaculate. One of the friendliest campgrounds we have been in. Had pull through and didn't disconnect so was a bit tight turning through roads with the 40 ft. We camped at Las Colinas RV Park (55+ park) in a Motorhome.

Wallace State Park, Cameron, Missouri

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $19.00
Overall Rating:

Second time at this park. Some sites near the playground in area 4 are too close together but others in park nicely spaced. Heavily wooded with lots of hiking trails. Showers were great- lots of hot water, pressure and really clean! We camped at Wallace State Park in a Motorhome.

Kansas City East / Oak Grove KOA, Oak Grove, Missouri

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $44.00
Overall Rating:

Had stayed at this KOA before and although the site then was rather hilly and small the park was well kept up at that time. This time we had a site at the back of the park right next to I70. I mean right next to I70- we were lower than the road and could see the semi truck tires spinning and hear them downshifting all night long. I should have known there was an issue when ear plugs were free at check in. Our site had trash on it, broken bricks and the fire pit was full of ashes. Looked like these were long term or staff sites. We would have requested moving but only there one night. We camped at Kansas City East / Oak Grove KOA in a Motorhome.

Prairie Flower Recreation Area COE, Johnston, Iowa

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $10.00
Overall Rating:

This is a fabulous, huge park part of the Saylorville Lake COE project. 235 sites, most with electricity spread out over many acres. Sites are spaced well apart, have concrete pads and patios, picnic table and fire rings. Showers and Bathrooms in the B loop were immaculate and well laid out with plenty of hot water. There are 3 other campgrounds around lake too. Limit is 14 days in a month. Nice hiking trails. Dump station small for handling so many sites and line up on Sunday within people leaving was long. There are water spigots throughout the park that we could fill up at. Planning to go back on way through next year. NOTE- call for address. Address on website takes you to the admin building far from the campground. We camped at Prairie Flower Recreation Area COE in a Motorhome.

Myre-Big Island State Park, Albert Lea, Minnesota

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

Very nice State park with hiking trails, boat ramps, lots of trees and open areas. White Fox campground has more prairie, open area and younger trees while Big Island has huge old oak savannas and a variety of hardwoods. The trees and forest are dense with little change for satellite on Big Island but many campers had air antennas up. There were multiple clean showers with lots of hot water. We camped at Myre-Big Island State Park in a Motorhome.

Ham Lake Campground, Ham Lake, Minnesota

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

We really liked our campsite across from the donkeys, llamas, goats and peacock! We had plenty of room on this end site and no problem to get satellite reception. Other campsites appeared a bit haphazard in arrangement and some were crammed together. There were also some nice sites surrounding Ham Lake. The entrance in is long, wooded and very narrow with a couple turnouts if two RV's meet. (Seems a tree or two could be removed) We were both a little concerned about where we were headed and were pleasantly surprised at the campground. While some of the signs and picnic tables could use some sprucing up, everything was clean and well kept up. The staff was friendly and helpful. They have mowed walking areas through the woods and fields and a small playground for the kids. We did not use the dump station, it appeared to be difficult to get to and would block vehicles when using it. It is NOT a resort but a very comfortable, older style, friendly mom and pop type operation. They were recently bought out by a resort operation so things may be modernized a bit. We camped at Ham Lake Campground in a Motorhome.

Al's Oasis Campground, Oacoma, South Dakota

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $33.00
Overall Rating:

This park is a standard older RV park with a little bit more space between sites then usual. Back in sites are back of RV to back of RV. Has a number of trees and grass. Well kept up. Our site was not level but worked OK. Highway noise is extreme though. Chamberlain camping spots fill up quickly over the weekend so was grateful to find a spot here. Al's Oasis is across the street and has restaurant grocery store and shops. The buffalo burger was fabulous. We camped at Al's Oasis Campground in a Motorhome.

7th Ranch RV Camp, Garryowen, Montana

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $39.00
Overall Rating:

Very well kept and beautiful private campground. Had an end site at the bottom of the hill and the views of the rolling hills are fantastic. Everyone is escorted to campsite. Allows RV and car washing but beware- very hard water! All pull throughs. Decorative bird houses line the drive to the campground. There are no grocery stores, or stores at all nearby so stock up before hand. Railroad trains do go by all night- but unlike my husband, I like the horns! Do NOT follow your GPS at the Garryowen exit, will be on the wrong side of the interstate. Follow their yellow signs. We camped at 7th Ranch RV Camp in a Motorhome.

3 miles to the Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument. The movie concerning the battle and history is factually well balanced with Native views and historian views. They even have an audio cell car tour. Custer battlefield Museum at Garryowen Exit. Didn't go into the museum but the gift shop is very interesting.

Yellowstone Golf Resort, Ashton, Idaho

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $50.00
Overall Rating:

It is difficult to rate this campground: lovely sites and not so lovely weekend price. The setting is beautiful with private sites in a splendid aspen forest. It looks similar to a state or national park but with full hook ups! We would stay longer if it wasn't so overpriced- $50 a night weekend rate far away from any major attractions or from the very small town of Ashton. Unfortunately PA was only accepted on one weeknight. It has definitely been allowed to rundown by the past owners, but can tell that the new owners are working to update roads, sites and facilities. The laundry has one washer and dryer in a cute red shed that was under repair when we were there. Except for the well groomed golf course though, it is not a resort! While the park is a good distance from Highway 20 and Ashton through rolling fields, it was well worth the trip for the beautiful wooded setting. We camped at Yellowstone Golf Resort in a Motorhome.
