Georgia-Bama RV Park, Heflin, Alabama

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

Not a destination but good place to overnight. Stones throw from US 20, I slept like a log since I carry ear plugs just in case. They have 15 or 20 sites, no trees, all gravel. Our site was level. Restaurant on-site, discount for campers, good food and service. We camped at Georgia-Bama RV Park in a Motorhome.

Woodhaven Lakes, Sublette, Illinois

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

Easy check-in, happy employees, great place to stay. All facilities are beautifully maintained. Our site had good drainage; excellent water pressure. The pools, beach and recreation areas are exceptionally well done with families in mind. Woodhaven has every activity field, court and course imaginable, complete recreation complex, snack bars, restaurant and well stocked reasonably priced grocery store. 7 fishing lakes on site and bait store. We camped at Woodhaven Lakes in a Motorhome.

Indiana Dunes State Park, Chesterton, Indiana

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

Good location to the dunes/lake shore. No water no sewer at sites; concrete pad but terribly out of level; grass way over due for mowing, kept the mosquitoes near. I mistakenly reserved the wrong dates as we are traveling cross country. The office manager would not even speak to me about simply switching dates. She told me to cancel and rebook, to which I fell prey to Indiana's punishing cancellation policy. The so-called Park Rangers do not work for the customers/tax payers in Indiana, they work for the state. Beware. We camped at Indiana Dunes State Park in a Motorhome.

Leisure Lake, Diamond, Ohio

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $5.00
Overall Rating:

Coast to Coast Premire Members beware! This campground is 98% long term and permanent members. Seems the association is trying to pick up some extra cash for short term stays. The "volunteer" hands out a park registration document for you to fill in that requires $10 per night for an RV site with water but no electric. Another $5.00 per night, for electric. The C2C reservation system correctly indicates zero points per night. So don't let them play you for the extra $10! We camped at Leisure Lake in a Motorhome.

Millwood Landing Golf & RV Resort, Ashdown, Arkansas

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

Sport courts, picnic shelters and pool equipment not well maintained. Sport courts look as if they have been underwater for quite awhile and never cleaned. Did not use the picnic shelters but they look rough. There were 7 poolside loungers, 6 were broken. The back supports were broken in half on several, it was not apparent and potentially dangerous to an unsuspecting sunbather. The manager said he would address it immediately and that new equipment was on order. This was Memorial Day weekend so the order planning was too late in the season. The broken loungers were still on the pool deck as we departed a week later. We camped at Millwood Landing Golf & RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Lake Conroe RV & Camping Resort / Thousand Trails, Willis, Texas

Date of Stay: April, 2018 - $3.00
Overall Rating:

Recently opened a new section of camp sites. Huge back-in concrete slabs and bath houses. Many improvements to amenities. Basketball courts, pickleball and tennis courts are all resurfaced. The activity center has a restaurant, adult game room, weight room and laundry. The weight room is really nice with up to date equipment. The information desk and sales office is moving to their new building opposite the activity center. They also broke ground next to the old building for another section of cottages for sale to permanent residence. We camped at Lake Conroe RV & Camping Resort / Thousand Trails in a Motorhome.

The city of Conroe is an easy 15 minutes away. They have everything you will ever need there. Houston is 50 minutes away, we went to an Astros day game. Watch the Hardy Toll Road - they do not have a cash toll both, EZ-Pass only. It may be worth getting because US45 gets pretty crowded during rush hour.

This is an older campground however, Ocean Canyon Properties acquired it September 2017. Many positive changes are the result. The grounds and amenities has the feel of a resort, well manicured and maintained with additional projects in the works. We camped at Hideaway Ponds Recreational Resort in a Motorhome.

Tievoli Hills Resort, Clarksville, Missouri

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

This park is encompasses a huge area located in beautiful rolling hills. We stayed for 13 nights at the campground. Considering landscaping and maintenance it seems the campground is a low priority compared to the villas, condominiums and cabins. Large dangerous holes remained from last fall when they updated the sewer lines for the middle sites. Initially, they put plywood over the holes, after a couple days they filled with dirt. I had to cut the grass on my site, mowers were out everyday way over by the villas, etc. Customer Service staff were not trained. The answer to most all my questions was "I don't know". We camped at Tievoli Hills Resort in a Motorhome.

Great place to visit, this campground has beautiful Silver Maple trees throughout, all sites are level, VERY long and spacious pull-thru. Staff is friendly, courteous and helpful.

Wonderful place to wake up in the morning. If you have never had the opportunity to see the Midwest, Percival Springs in a great representation-it's beautiful here!

Unicoi State Park is a beautiful 20 mile ride through the Chatahoochee National Forest. Within the park, we took a moderate half-mile walk to Anna Ruby Falls. Unique since the falls are the result of two creeks merging 156 feet above. Must see.

Bear Cave Resort, Buchanan, Michigan

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $1.00
Overall Rating:

Big rig friendly and the park has a very good layout. Full service utility sites are out in the open with little shade but great satellite reception. We stayed in a shaded area (no sewer and partial satellite reception) with the dump station and laundry nearby. We will make a return trip, hopefully the entrance road will be in better condition; long and ruff. We camped at Bear Cave Resort in a Motorhome.

Antiquated electrical service...very old campground has not been updated. Utilities are not close; bring lots of water hose. 50 amps available depending on what your neighbor is using. Not suitable for Motorhomes especially with trailer. Not a level spot on the property. Very narrow site with deep ruts on either side. We camped at Three Springs Campground in a Motorhome.

Forest Lake RV Park & Camping Resort (Thousand Trails), Advance, North Carolina

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $1.00
Overall Rating:

Well equipped and maintained clubhouse, pool shower/changing room. Adult pool is large; nice hot tub. The Family/kids pool area is really well done with a Jungle Gym, ice cream shop and restaurant. The restaurant is priced for families on a budget.

Our site was perfectly level, large and grassy.

NOTE: the waste water pipe does not have a threaded attachment style so bring an adapter. I use a 3" diameter by 12" long PVC pipe with a standard RV sewer line elbow adapted. Worked well. We camped at Forest Lake RV Park & Camping Resort (Thousand Trails) in a Motorhome.
