Safe Harbor RV Resort at Elm Hill, Nashville, Tennessee

Date of Stay: April, 2018 - $43.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed four weeks in a "B" site (#17) and paid the monthly rate of $1,195 (for 28 nights it was $43/night) with no addl tax or fees. Reservations were made by telephone several months in advance but they do have an online reservation system in place. I found the phones were answered promptly and the staff always capable and super friendly. One half of the money was collected upfront at time of reservation. Easy on/off the 40 freeway. Tip - if you are coming from the 40 driving south, you do NOT want to turn where you see "Elm Hill Marina". You need to drive another .25 mile to "Safe Harbor at Elm Hill". Check in was easy and efficient. The office area is a bit quirky with a decorative "traffic" circle. There is sufficient room to park on the side before or after the circle in order to check-in and disconnect the toad (vehicles will have sufficient space to get around you). We loved our site which had a "front yard" on the driver's side with a nice amount of space between us and our neighbor and lake views from nearly every window. Sites are cement and level - most with a picnic table and fire ring. The office sells firewood. Roads are asphalt in excellent condition. We had a decent amount of rain and did not see any water pooling. The lake is beautiful and any site in the park will have a nice view. The overall park is generally clean although we did find (and dispose of) numerous cigarette butts and small trash/debris in our site (my pet peeve!). Neighbors were pleasant. Very quiet day and night. All hook-ups worked perfectly with strong 50amp power. Open sky for DirecTV signal. Verizon cell and Mifi worked well. CG wifi was hit or miss. They said it's a new system and they're working out the kinks. When it worked, it was excellent. I did not see any recycling. We enjoyed this park very much along with its proximity to all things Nashville. We camped at Safe Harbor RV Resort at Elm Hill in a Motorhome.

Near the CG is a trailhead (and large dog park) for the fabulous Music City Bikeway. It's perfect for walking, running, dog-walking and cycling. Suggest Andrew Jackson's Hermitage and guided tour of Ryman Auditorium. It takes 30-45 minutes driving to downtown depending on traffic. Good food and custom cocktails can be had at Hemingways and Sinema (both in town). Or, stay local at Papa Turney's serving wonderful hospitality, excellent BBQ and live jazz. Take in a Nashville Sounds baseball game.

Twin Lakes RV Park, Cumming, Georgia

Date of Stay: April, 2018 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed 8 nights. Paid $280 or $35/night - no addl tax or fees. **Note - they only accept cash or checks** Reservations must be made by telephone but I always found the phones were answered promptly and the staff to be capable and friendly. No up front money is collected - just pay at check-in. We called (on day of) to see if we could arrive one day early. Office staff was friendly and accommodating and able to get us in (although we had to change sites after the first night). Easy on/off the freeway. Tip - when on Atlanta Hwy, the turn to the campground is where you see a sign "Mr. Fix". There is a campground sign but, for us, the "Mr. Fix" sign was easier to see. Check in was easy and efficient. There is plenty of room to park in front of the office and disconnect/reconnect the toad. We stayed on the plateau area (sites 41-51) in order to have 50 amp/water/sewer. The plateau is gravel and can be a little dusty if it's dry and a car drives by or a strong wind blows. On the other hand, we had a decent amount of rain one day/night and did not see any water pooling. The lakes are pretty and there is a small trail which allows you to walk around the perimeter of one lake (great for dog walking too). Overall park is clean although we did find (and dispose of) numerous cigarette butts in our site (gross!). Neighbors were pleasant. Very quiet day and night. All hook-ups worked perfectly. Open sky for DirecTV signal. Verizon cell and Mifi worked well. CG wifi was about as good as it gets working well nearly 100% of the time. I did not see any recycling. If you are a motorhome and if you don't need sewer and if you have a good amount of hose length, I suggest pulling nose-in to the lakefront sites 71-74 & 80-90. That way you'll have a wonderful view of the lake through your windshield. We camped at Twin Lakes RV Park in a Motorhome.

Highly recommend Fowler Park. Turn right from CG on Atlanta Hwy and go about 2 miles. Fowler Park has tons of amenities (sports fields, track, basketball courts, skate park, etc.) and you can access Big Creek Greenway for walking, running, cycling or dog walking. The Greenway is a lovely, safe off-road path. Gibbs Gardens is 220 acres of beautiful. Allow plenty of time, wear comfy shoes and enjoy! We discovered good burgers and extra-yummy fries at Burger Bus in Ball Ground (near Gibbs Gardens).

Bryn Mawr Ocean Resort, St Augustine Beach, Florida

Date of Stay: April, 2018 - $80.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed 7 nights in a beach front site. Cost was $80/night plus 10.5% tax or $88.40/night total. We called in January to reserve for April and they were full. Called two weeks later and were thrilled that a beach front site had opened up. Lucky us! Check in was efficient. Office and maintenance staff friendly. Our amazing site offered a large, level cement pad with plenty of room for 45' plus a toad parked sideways and reasonable space between neighbors. Sites vary as they are individually owned. Ours had a raised & covered patio with picnic table plus a separate metal table for our grill and pretty stone landscaping on each side of site. CG is clean, well-managed and the location is fabulous. The beach is immediately adjacent to the park and couldn't be more beautiful. There are lots of amenities for kids and adults. Very family friendly. Trash picked up daily at site. All hook-ups worked perfectly. Clear sky for DirecTV. Good signal for Verizon cell and Mifi. A few negatives - the palm trees along the exit route inside the park need trimming (specifically up high for tall rigs). The spa had warm water but not hot as it should be and the jets didn't "jet" water. The DH said it was more of a warm tub rather than a spa. I didn't see any recycling. Entrance to CG is a little quirky. If you're a big rig towing, enter very slowly so you can decide if you want to unhook the toad before or after the gate. Before the gate can be tough because the curve may prevent you from getting straight enough to unhook. If need be, the office will gladly open the gate to allow you through and, on the other side, you'll have plenty of space to unhook. This is a popular CG (for good reason) so plan ahead and reserve early. If you call and they're full, keep trying. We enjoyed our time here and would be absolutely delighted to stay again. We camped at Bryn Mawr Ocean Resort in a Motorhome.

Easy access to grocery stores. Recommend Soggy Doggy dog grooming a mile south on A1A. Historic St. Aug. is magical and the fort is very special. Kids will love the canon demonstration! To see the early 1800's historic shipwreck that washed ashore in March 2018 in Ponte Vedra - park at Exxon station and walk north on beach about 1/2 mile. It's in front of private residences in the 2500 block on A1A.

Lazydays RV Campground, Seffner, Florida

Date of Stay: April, 2018 - $70.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed 3 nights in the beginning of March in a 45' site. This is prime season with a rate of $69.99 plus 12% tax for a nightly rate of $78.39. We stayed again for 3 nights at the end of March (also a 45' site). The rate was $53.99 plus tax for a nightly rate of $60.47. We tried to get a site for a few nights in late February but they were booked. Plan ahead if you want to stay during peak periods. The reservation system works well and emails a confirmation promptly. It requests credit card info but does not collect any funds. One quirk is that the reservation doesn't show the cost which I thought was odd. Easy access from the 4 freeway. Large staging area with long pull-through diagonal sites. It's perfect for arrivals and departures to unhook or hook up your toad. Check-in was friendly and efficient. We were 45 minutes early on our first visit and they were very gracious to put us into a site immediately - no drama. Our site was level and exactly 45' long. We parked our toad sideways in front of our rig which is what everyone must do. You may need to ask a neighbor to move their vehicle to get into or out of your site. Everyone is friendly. We saw no issues. All hook-ups worked perfectly. Open sky for DirecTV signal. Good Verizon cell and Mifi. No recycling that I could see. Trash is picked up at your site. The Lazydays property including dealership is HUGE. You can rent a golf cart or bicycle or there is a trolley. If walking, stay on pedestrian walkways when possible. The DH enjoyed the spa a few times. My only issue is small pieces of trash in our site. We would be happy to stay here again. We camped at Lazydays RV Campground in a Motorhome.

You are provided with meal tickets for breakfast and lunch at the dealership cafeteria. Pay attention to the cafeteria hours. They close right on time and are closed on Sundays. The food isn't anything special but it's free and it's fun to walk through the lot and see the new RV's. Bring money in case you want more at the cafeteria than is covered by your meal ticket.

Columbia Restaurant in Ybor City Historic District is a must - wonderful old building/architecture, excellent food and nice atmosphere including live music. Attend a Tampa Bay Rays game. It's the last MLB dome stadium remaining. CG is close to Camping World, Tampa RV and General RV.

C.B. Smith Park, Pembroke Pines, Florida

Date of Stay: March, 2018 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

Paid $40/night plus 6% tax $42.40/night all-in. Online reservation system is quirky but it works. Required to pay 100% at time of reservation. Check in was fast and friendly. Upon entering the park, the office is the first thing you see. It has a sign clearly identifying it. There are two long parking spots on the right available for check-in but both spots curve making it tricky to get straight in order to unhook a toad (the DH managed to do it). Park staff suggested an alternate area to unhook or rehook (parking lot 22 across from entrance to camping area). If you opt for this, watch the trees. Suggest you enter/exit parking lot 22 using the second driveway which is a little bit past the campground turn. Our site was #15 which was plenty long for a 45' coach plus toad parked sideways. However this site is in the middle of the "u" of a horseshoe with the curve not particularly big rig friendly. We avoided the curve by driving to where the second horseshoe tip meets the road and backing all the way in (if that makes sense). It's not as far as it sounds and it worked perfectly. We had a lovely lake view through our big windshield. All hook-ups worked well. There was trash on our site (my pet peeve) including numerous cigarette butts (gross!). Our site had one good sized tree on each side but we were still able to obtain a DirecTV signal. Most sites seem fairly open but there are trees here and there which could obstruct a signal. We had 5 bars on Verizon. There are trash dumpsters conveniently located plus recycling bins. Showers were basically clean except for hair on walls and drain plus dead bugs and cobwebs on light fixtures. This is a slice of paradise inside a metropolitan area with trails for walking, running or biking. Neighbors were friendly. We discovered the max stay is 180 days and noticed some folks seemed settled in for the long haul. No wonder it's so hard to get a site. If in the area, we would be happy to stay here again. We camped at C.B. Smith Park in a Motorhome.

PAK Mail is 1/2 mile to the left on Flamingo and very helpful for shipping needs. Trader Joe's is at corner of Flamingo/Pines. Highly recommend mobile technician Sean with RV Master. He's not cheap but he's very good (better than our mfr helpline). He diagnosed and fixed our power issue in ten minutes flat. Traffic is awful all times of day. Allow plenty of time.

Venture Out Resort, Cudjoe Key, Florida

Date of Stay: March, 2018 - $111.00
Overall Rating:

We paid $111 per night plus 12.5% tax plus $45 booking fee to Waterfront Realty plus $53.75 resort fee (cash) at time of check-in. For 14 nights, our all-in price was $131.61/night. Site shapes, sizes and views vary dramatically as does the pricing. We had a waterfront site (#160) which has an open water view. It is designed to be a back-in site but we wanted the ocean view through our big windshield. We were able to pull nose in and get our cords/hoses under the coach and reach to the other side. It meant we couldn't put out our awning due to palm trees and we had to step over hoses when coming/going but the view was totally worth it! Whether you back in or pull in, the site offers sufficient room for a 45' motorhome and tow car. We had a large gravel "patio" area and cement round table with cement stools. It is remarkable how good things look just a few months after Irma. The landscaping has been ravaged but is starting to come back. Several of the older trailer homes were (sadly) destroyed by Irma and many of those sites are being converted into RV sites. That might lead to more availability for rver's in the future. Neighbors are very friendly and happy to engage in extended conversation (if you choose). The sites are individually owned and most residents spend the winter there. It's an extremely active crowd with a gazillion activities and tons of participation. There are a lot of rules and it seems the rules aren't always applied evenly. However it is still a nice, clean, safe, lovely park. We did not have wifi at our site. All hook-ups worked perfectly. Verizon cell, Sprint Mi-Fi and DirecTV worked well. This was our second stay and we still haven't had enough. We are already thinking about when we can return and stay longer! We camped at Venture Out Resort in a Motorhome.

Square Grouper is fabulous - they have an Upstairs and a Downstairs - essentially two different restaurants. Both are fantastic. We splurged on the seaplane tour to Dry Tortugas Natl Park. The water is crystal clear. You can see sharks, turtles and rays from the plane. Fort Jefferson is very cool. Try the fish dip at No Name Pub (on Big Pine Key) while you check out an estimated $70,000 of dollar bills stapled to their walls.

Goldcoaster RV Resort, Homestead, Florida

Date of Stay: March, 2018 - $75.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed 4 nights. Paid $75/night. Recommend un-hooking tow car in front of office. Recommend sites that are 3-5 sites away from trash/maintenance area (such as 113-115, 118-120, 355-357, 544-547 ... although a couple of those might be particularly attractive if you are towing a trailer because they're big corner lots providing good maneuverability and space). Our site was a back-in super large grassy area - no concrete patio, no picnic table and no fire pit. The parking space for our tow vehicle was asphalt. Amazingly no bug or mosquito issues. Telephone reservation process and check-in were easy and efficient (although I wish Sun would allow online reservations). Staff was friendly. We received an info packet at check-in including a map and calendar of activities. We were given green rubber wristbands to wear when using the pool or spa. All hook-ups worked perfectly. We had open sky with excellent DirecTV, Verizon cell and Sprint Wifi signals. We could not obtain park wifi at our site. The office said you can only get their wifi at the clubhouse. Neighbors were pleasant but kept to themselves. The park was clean and well-landscaped. The trash receptacle for RVer's is in the back of the park meaning you have to drive your trash to the trash area. There are a few "junky" mobile homes but most appeared to be neat and well-maintained. Some post-Irma repairs are still underway. The area outside of the park is dicey so we were glad they had a staffed guard gate. Inside the park we felt fairly safe although we were warned of petty theft (i.e. bicycles being stolen). No doubt the fencing around the CG could be easily jumped. We did not have any problems but it did make us uneasy. I definitely wouldn't suggest a single female go walking outside alone day or night. We'd stay here again if necessary but it wouldn't be our first choice. It's hard to find availability in the Miami area this time of year. We camped at Goldcoaster RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Don't miss Knaus Berry Farm! Seriously. They have the BEST cinnamon rolls EVER!! They are known for their strawberry shake which is delicious. Lots of conveniences within 5 miles but be vigilant and exercise caution day or night. Shipwrecks in Key Largo is casual and affordable. Their peel and eat shrimp is the best I've had anywhere.

Aztec RV Resort, Margate, Florida

Date of Stay: March, 2018 - $170.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed 4 nights. Paid $170/night plus 12% tax or $190.39/night. If you have FMCA, ask if they offer a discount. Reservation person on the phone was pleasant and capable. The resort was full and we were glad to have a spot even though it's extremely expensive. Aztec has all the bells and whistles of a first class resort including immaculate landscaping with healthy green grass, flowers and lovely palm trees. The amenities are fabulous. Be prepared to provide a drivers license at the guard gate upon initial arrival. Once inside at the office area, the staging area isn't well marked or particularly big rig friendly (park on the right side - you might have to block a driveway). Also it's on a curve which makes it tough to get straight to unhook your toad. I imagine this design "flaw" stems from it being an owners resort rather than an "RV Park". Check in was friendly and efficient. Staff is bilingual and helpful. We were given a calendar of activities (tons going on) including English speaking social gatherings. We were escorted to our site. Our site was all pavers, level, large (very long and very wide) with a hedge providing some privacy. There was trash on our site (my pet peeve) including food packaging and cigarette butts. No patio furniture. All hook-ups worked perfectly. Clear sky for Verizon cell, Verizon MiFi and DirecTV. Trash is picked up on site daily. I didn't see any recycling. Big air conditioned gym with all sorts of weights and numerous weight and cardio machines. I took a line dancing class ($2) and a Zumba class (free). Both classes were in French but its easy to follow if you can see the instructor. I personally found French speakers to be friendly when given the chance. There are lots of golf carts and bicycles zipping around. A surprising amount of kids too. Exercise caution. We enjoyed our time here and would love to stay again although we'd certainly have to take cost into consideration. We camped at Aztec RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Stretch your legs at Hugh Taylor Birch State Park in Ft. Lauderdale. Located 15 miles from the resort, it's a tropical hammock between the ocean and intracoastal with trails for walking and exploring plus a fresh water lagoon for kayaking. One can easily cross A1A to get to the beach. Parking is $6. I imagine it can fill up at times so suggest arriving early.

Bay Lake Motorcoach Resort, Polk City, Florida

Date of Stay: March, 2018 - $73.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed one week. Paid $508.25 ($72.61/night). The telephone reservation process was especially friendly and helpful. We called last minute and were grateful to be given the last site available. Our GPS got a little confused. Turn left by Love's gas station, drive behind and past it. A sign says "dead end" but you want to continue driving. The road will end at the resort entrance. It is very easy on/off the freeway. Check-in was easy, efficient and welcoming. We were escorted to our site. Our site (#262) has a casita but we did not rent/pay for the casita. Our pad was very (very, very) large, level and clean with pavers and lovely landscaping. Due to individual ownership, sites vary quite a bit. Some have nifty hardscape such as tiki huts. Upon arrival, it wasn't immediately clear where to park and check-in probably because it's an "owners" resort as opposed to an "RV Park". Drive forward and park inside the first circle you come to. The clubhouse will be obvious due to its large size. It's not a busy place and there is lots of space so you needn't worry about blocking the road. We were fairly close to the freeway and noticed some noise but not bad. For example, we were able to sit outside and watch tv without issue. We had a problem with the power. The staff sent a repair person who fixed it promptly. All other hook-ups worked perfectly. Good water pressure. Verizon cell, MiFi and DirecTV worked well. Mosquitoes at dusk are absolutely terrible. It seems they could spray for this. Single stream recycling for plastic, paper, cardboard, glass, aluminum and tin. Neighbors are mostly owners and are super friendly. It's no wonder why folks enjoy this park. It's a pleasant place to be. The location is a bit quirky. On the one hand the location is convenient being in between Tampa and Orlando but, the conveniences aren't close by. The nearest grocery store is about 10 miles away. We enjoyed our time here and would be happy to stay again. We camped at Bay Lake Motorcoach Resort in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Get some fresh air and exercise on the Van Fleet State Trail which is a well-planned, paved pedestrian, dog-walking and bike trail. You can pick it up at the Polk City Trailhead 4 miles from the resort (plenty of free parking). There are rest benches, bike repair stations and restroom facilities (including water refill) along the way. Expect varied scenery (swamp, forest, cattle ranches, alpaca farm) and plenty of wildlife. We saw turtles and a wild mama pig napping with her babies.

Tampa East RV Resort, Dover, Florida

Date of Stay: February, 2018 - $51.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed for three nights. First night was $60.75 incl tax due to a special event nearby. The next two nights were $50.49 each. Sun does not offer online reservations which is annoying. Our initial reservation for one night was made via telephone. Upon arrival, we had to wait in line over ten minutes to check-in. It's a busy place. Staff was pleasant and efficient. When we added two nights later, they were very helpful and we did not have to change sites. This is a big park with lots of little roads. We would have appreciated an escort to our site. We missed a turn trying to get to our space. Roads are a bit tight but manageable...but tight enough to concern you when you realize you missed your turn or when a vehicle is coming towards you (although motorists were really good about carefully passing rigs or pedestrians). A friendly camper helped us figure out how to get back to our site. Our site (A-10) was next to the office, shuffleboard area, propane tank, trash dumpster, playground and pool. We also backed to the highway (McIntosh). In spite of numerous "obstacles"; surprisingly, it wasn't terribly noisy nor was there any nuisance. The highway quiets down at night. Our site had a tree providing welcome shade in the afternoon although it also provided lots of messy leaves and fuzz to the roof of our coach and toad. Both were absolutely filthy after three nights. Some sites are cement pull-thru's but most are dirt/grass/sand back-ins. Reasonable grassy space in between sites in our particular area. Grounds are clean and maintained. We did not experience mosquitoes or ants. Some sites aren't level so you might need blocks. Hook-ups worked well. Satisfactory Verizon cell, Verizon Mifi and DirecTV signals. Some sites might have trees blocking satellite signal. I didn't see any recycling options. The overall park is very popular and full mid-February. If returning to the area, we would evaluate all options first but would be willing to stay here again. We camped at Tampa East RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Cajun Palms RV Resort, Breaux Bridge, Louisiana

Date of Stay: February, 2018 - $32.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed one night while passing through (CA to FL). Rate was $35 less 10% Good Sam plus tax. Total paid was $35.76. Called the day of arrival to check availability. Was told they had plenty of space and to come on in. This was the Saturday night of President's Day weekend. There is significant road construction at the freeway on/off ramps which are very dicey especially at night. Go slow and be extra careful. Other than that, the CG is easy on/off and easy to find. Staff was friendly. Check-in was efficient. There is a small store inside the office. We were escorted to our site and offered assistance to hook-up (we declined). Interior roads are cement and a bit tight but definitely do-able for big rigs. We had a level, cement pull-through which was plenty long for our motorhome plus Jeep toad. We did not unhook. All hook-ups worked well. Satisfactory Verizon cell, wifi and DirecTV signals. Did not see any recycling options. CG was generally clean but had some trash here and there including numerous cigarette butts in our site (my pet peeve). It was very quiet at night. We did not notice any road noise. We met several neighbors who were all very nice. This campground has extensive amenities including severals pools, swim-up bar, water slide, spa, put-put, playground and game/arcade room. I imagine it's a very popular place in the Summer for families. Unfortunately the pool/spa area was closed during our visit. We were disappointed as we were counting on the spa after a long day of travel and their website didn't reveal that it was closed. In any event, we had a nice stay and would be happy to stay again.

We did not explore area or eat out but were told by front office at check-in of two nearby restaurants that deliver. They provided us with menus for both. One restaurant will even send a car to pick you up.

Hollywood RV Park(formerly Balboa RV Park), Van Nuys, California

Date of Stay: December, 2017 - $54.00
Overall Rating:

The name of the park has been changed to Hollywood RV Park effective January 1st, 2018. We stayed for two weeks. The weekly rate was $375 plus 14% tax (yes - 14% tax - California is crazy!). Our average all-in cost was $61.07/night. The reservation process was easy; check-in friendly and efficient. We were escorted to our site in the "back lot" which is basically an asphalt area with several 50amp/water hookups (no sewer). We knew in advance we would be there but it was the holiday season and we were glad to get in. Honey wagon service is available for free as needed and the maintenance guy was super nice and always helpful. Because the regular sites are fairly small/tight (most are not big rig size), we were quite happy to be in the back lot with some extra space. Satisfactory Verizon cell, Verizon Mifi and DirecTV signals. We did not try CG wifi so can't comment on that. The office was able to receive shipments which we appreciated. Although the CG backs to Van Nuys airport, it wasn't too noisy during the day and it was quiet at night. The location suited us because it allowed us to spend time with family. It's close to the 405 and 101 and there are lots of conveniences nearby including an In-N-Out Burger 1/2 mile away. The CG is well-managed and clean. Big laundry room with numerous machines and a large folding area. $1.00 wash and 75 cents dry (although you might need to run the dryer twice depending on what you're drying). Security at night is very attentive to vehicles entering the park. We met the owner who is actively involved in day-to-day operations. They have many long term tenants and the park is nearly full at all times. Reserve ahead if you can. If we need to be in the area, we would be happy to stay again. We camped at Hollywood RV Park(formerly Balboa RV Park) in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

One small block North on Balboa (same side of street) is a combo cross-fit gym and pilates studio. Highly recommend. You can walk there in 5 minutes. We had a plumbing issue. The CG office recommended a mobile repair guy named Steve who was awesome - excellent communication, arrived on-time, fixed the problem and was reasonably priced.

Dockweiler RV Park, Playa del Rey, California

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

We stayed 21 nights in the back row. We paid $55/night plus a one-time $10 reservation fee. There is no tax. Hook-ups worked well. Did not use the restrooms/showers so can't comment on that. There is wifi but, we were told, you have to be very close (maybe within 3 sites) to the office in order to get it. Verizon cell and Verizon Mifi signals were terrible. Open sky for good satellite signal. This is not our first time in this park so we knew what we were getting into. It's a love/hate situation. We love the location - close to the beach, bike path and family in South Bay. We hate the location - extremely tight sites, extremely loud planes and extremely fragrant sewer plant. This stay we had the added excitement of having a neighbor clip our motorhome along with ensuing drama (he wouldn't give us his name and his rig didn't have a license plate - you get the gist). There aren't many choices if you want to stay in Los Angeles. Buyer beware. We camped at Dockweiler RV Park in a Motorhome.

The back row of the CG is slightly elevated and the least expensive. In the winter when the sand berm is up, the back row might have the best view while offering the best price.

Tucson / Lazydays KOA, Tucson, Arizona

Date of Stay: November, 2017 - $43.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed 7 nights and selected the least expensive option. The cost was $47.95 per night less 10% discount for KOA ValueKard plus 50 cent AZ Occupancy Tax plus 12% tax. Our average cost all-in per night was $48.85. The reservation process is always easy with KOA. CG staff is super friendly including office staff and maintenance/grounds crew. Everyone always has ready a smile and a wave. All hook-ups worked perfectly. Satisfactory signals for Verizon cell, Verizon mifi and DirecTV. They offer trash pick-up at the site and they are very diligent about it. You never see trash bags waiting for pick-up. They have a great mailroom for receiving packages. They also VERY KINDLY received a perishable item for us, called us to let us know it arrived and put it in their refrigerator until we picked it up (and it was not a small box!). Sites are a decent size and most have a fruit tree - some even have little yards or patios with built in fireplaces. Lots of amenities - pools, jacuzzi, small fitness room, games, pond, large dog park, etc. Bath house is clean with big showers and awesome water pressure. The entire CG is impeccably clean. For walkers/runners - the widest possible circumference inside the CG is .8 miles. The CG offers inexpensive, outdoor RV storage with power hook up (not to be confused with their normal campground sites). This enabled us to fly out of Tucson for Thanksgiving knowing our RV was in a safe place. Overall this is a very pleasant place to be. We will be back. We camped at Tucson / Lazydays KOA in a Motorhome.

Tucson Tamale Co has great tamales! Eat in AND take some home. They have them frozen and they keep very well. We boarded our cat with Guadalupe Veterinary Clinic for $20/day. Very kind staff. The Loop is a 131 mile dedicated bike path circling Tucson. Ride your bike to the exit by Lazydays RV and turn right on Irvington. You can't miss it. Relatively flat.

City of Rocks State Park, Faywood, New Mexico

Date of Stay: November, 2017 - $14.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed three nights in an "Electric Site" (E-08) which included 30amp plus water (no sewer). The cost was $14/night plus a $12 Transaction Fee from ReserveAmerica. Our average cost all-in was $18/night. This is a beautiful area with great boondocking options for smaller rigs. Although we had a traditional campsite, we absolutely loved the park. We had a wonderful view of the rocks through our windshield as well as through virtually every window. Our campsite had plenty of space both in width and length (you don't have to unhook your toad unless you want to take it somewhere). Access roads and interior roads are big rig friendly. Our neighbors, camp hosts and CG staff were all lovely. The bathroom/showers in the visitor center are okay. Private shower stalls require you to push a button which gives water for 5 seconds so you have to keep pressing again and again in an effort to obtain a continuous stream. Having said that, the water is warm and there is decent water pressure. We received satisfactory signals for Verizon cell, Verizon wifi and DirecTV. Expect fabulous sunrises and sunsets plus a dark sky excellent for stargazing. You'll want to spend your days outside walking, hiking, biking and climbing on the rocks. It's a pleasant place to be and the price is right! City of Rocks is a solid 30 miles from the 10 frwy (Deming) but it's a very easy drive - pretty much 65 mph the whole way with virtually no vehicles in either direction. We reserved six weeks in advance which got us a 30 amp site. The CG was full the weekend we stayed which also happened to be Veteran's Day weekend. We look forward to returning one day and hope to stay longer next time! We camped at City of Rocks State Park in a Motorhome.

We had a late lunch at Alisa's House of Pies in Deming. The food and pies are delicious. Alisa and her husband, Curtis, are hands-on owners, chefs and bakers. It was a delicious meal and we enjoyed chatting with Alisa and Curtis.
