Belvidere East / Exit 170 KOA, Midland, South Dakota

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $47.00
Overall Rating:

This campground is under new ownership as of Spring 2018. It has easy access to the I-90 freeway, and would probably get more business if it lowered its prices to be more in line with the area. This is a "Journey" KOA, so there are no activities or entertainment other than the pool. The new owners have a lot of work ahead of them to spruce up the park, but all utilities are located logically and in good working order. That's what mattered most to us. There is a limited number of channels on the camp cable, and it worked well. There's plenty of southern sky if you bring your own TV cable satellite dish. We used this KOA as a base to visit The 1880 Town (amazing), 1940's Zephyr Dining Train (that served great breakfasts), the Minuteman Missle Silo Historic Site Visitor Center, Wall Drug (a must do) and the Badlands National Park. We camped at Belvidere East / Exit 170 KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Dakota Sunsets RV Park and Campground, Salem, South Dakota

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $33.00
Overall Rating:

This camp is under new ownership, and they are doing all the right things. Good value and friendly staff with nice campground. The trees have been trimmed properly making it easy to navigate interior roads and campsites. Sites all seem level and well drained. Water, electric and sewer hookups at each site are in good condition and well located for easy hookup. Sites are somewhat shaded, but still enough sunshine to dry out nicely after a rain, and enough to get good TV satellite signal. Pool is closed for the season, and will get an overhaul spring 2019. We really didn't see any seasonal campers - just weekenders and travelers. This campground is just far enough off the freeway to be quiet, and yet still very convenient to I-90 for long distance travelers. Great stop after a long day's drive, or for a family weekend. Good DISH signal. Good AT&T signal. We will definitely stay here again during our travels. We camped at Dakota Sunsets RV Park and Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Rock Port / RiversEdge Campground , Rock Port, Missouri

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $33.00
Overall Rating:

This campground is under new ownership, and they are doing a great job making it a welcoming, cost effective and clean campground. It's an easy RV stop after a long day's drive - or additional sites in the trees offer a more conventional camping experience for families at play. All sites are level. Good TV satellite reception. Good AT&T signal. Clean, new pool. Friendly owners. We highly recommend this camp. We camped at Rock Port / RiversEdge Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Lazy Day Campground, Danville, Missouri

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $38.00
Overall Rating:

There was a detour at the freeway that changed our access to the campground. A quick call to their was all it took to get an easy solution. This campground is under new management, and it was lovely. Clean interior roads. Level, well drained and manicured camp sites. Clean and nicely decorated bathrooms/showers. Friendly, accommodating service. Nicely trimmed trees that offered just the right shade without blocking roads or causing trouble for TV satellite. Good AT&T cell signal. Nice pool. Camp site was long enough for our 40' fifth wheel and F350 truck. We camped at Lazy Day Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Gun Creek Campground - COE, Whittington, Illinois

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $12.00
Overall Rating:

Some of the sites in this COE have full hookups. We were in a beautiful back in site (#029) right on the water with full hookups. The site was quite sloped, and difficult to level our 40' fifth wheel, but we managed with being a little off. The beauty of the site was worth a degree or two off-level. Neighbors were far enough away that we had plenty of privacy and quiet. We put our dish near the water and had no trouble accessing DISH TV satellites. AT&T cell signal was okay. Interior roads were adequate to navigate. We loved this campground. We camped at Gun Creek Campground - COE in a Fifth Wheel.

Nashville North KOA, Goodlettsville, Tennessee

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $53.00
Overall Rating:

Like all KOA's, this camp was way over priced. It was a well layer out, easy to navigate, pleasant park with a helpful, friendly staff. It is located near the highway, but noise was not an issue. Full hookups and camp cable were in good working order. Because of all the trees we did not hook up our DISH. For IT security reasons we never use camp WIFI, so we cannot speak to that. AT&T service was good. The first night we enjoyed a delicious, catered pulled pork dinner ($10 each) and live music. Met some lovely people at that venue. The pool was simple, but clean. The camp was about 25-30 minutes from the Bourbon Street action, and 20-25 minutes from the Grand Ole Opry. It rained for two days while we were there, and our campsite was one of very few that became a pond. We recommended they add topsoil and gravel. We camped at Nashville North KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Douglas Headwater Campgrounds, Sevierville, Tennessee

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $18.00
Overall Rating:

This camp is run by the TVA, and national authority similar to the Corp of Engineers (COE). The spaces are wide and shady. Trees are trimmed so, there we had no trouble with our 40' big rig. This camp does not have sewers, but there is a newer TVA park on the same lake that is more expensive and does have sewers. They have a service that will come to your site to empty your gray and black tanks for $20. The dump station is positioned oddly, and might cause a long line on Sunday when many are leaving. Because of the trees, getting a signal on our DISH was difficult but not impossible. This location is not too far from Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg and Great Smoky National Park. Because it is so close to attractions, you will probably need advance reservations to stay at this park. A swimming, fishing and picnic zone was at the end of the RV park with parking for day visitors. Some walked through the RV park out of curiosity, but it was not a safety concern for us. Bathroom/shower buildings are shared with day visitors, and therefore get a great deal of traffic. Our AT&T signal was good. Interior were roads good. Water and electric location at each campsite seemed good. Camp hosts were friendly even though their signs all said, "Off duty" the whole time we were there. Camp was quiet and clean. We did Navy showers in our RV, and did not use public bathrooms/showers though they appeared clean when we looked in. We definitely would stay here again. We camped at Douglas Headwater Campgrounds in a Fifth Wheel.

Misty Mountain Camp Resort, Greenwood, Virginia

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $49.00
Overall Rating:

This park is within easy access of the freeway, yet far enough away that traffic noise is not an issue. It is well maintained, and the staff are pleasant and helpful. Interior roads are very tight for a big rig, but not impossible. Because of the cramped sites we were glad to have a pull through site. We would not have been able to maneuver a back in. The pull through sites in the newer section looked a bit more level and sunny. We had a pull through site in an older section near the creek. It was close but pleasant with a cement patio, picnic table and fire ring. The site was barely long enough for our 40' fifth wheel with our pickup parked sideways. Lots of people lined their vehicles along the toad, and that contributed to tight roads. Because of the trees we were only able to pull in two satellites on our DISH, and camp cable was limited to 10 or 12 channels that we never watch. AT&T had 3 bars LTE. The bandwidth of the camp WIFI was typically useless. There are a lot of seasonal campers, but they were friendly, and their rigs are well maintained. We would definitely stay here again even though it seemed a bit pricey. We camped at Misty Mountain Camp Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Twin Mountain / Mt. Washington KOA, Twin Mountain, New Hampshire

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $82.00
Overall Rating:

This is a lovely park and conveniently located near the Cog Railway, Twin Mountain, many hiking trails, tour trains, etc. Check in was quick. We were escorted to our site. WIFI was poor, which is pretty typical. AT&T provided only 2 bars of 3G. In the deluxe pull through sites there is a clear view of the sky, so used our own DISH satellite. Back in sites are tight and shady, so a DISH would not work there. Water pressure was good, and electricity was stable. We stayed in deluxe pull through site with a cement patio, pots of flowers, and availability of a covered pavilion that had a gas grill, comfortable patio furniture and a fire pit. Many weekenders gathered there, and it was very friendly setting. The deluxe sites were very pleasant, but not worth the $80 price tag. The campground has a pool and train rides for the kids, but nothing else in the way of "resort" amenities that we have seen at many other RV resorts. Bathrooms, laundry, camp store were all well maintained and pleasant. Unfortunately, because of the overpricing, we would not stay here again. We camped at Twin Mountain / Mt. Washington KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Loads of things to do in the area. Ask the office for info on the Cog Railroad. We enjoyed lunch on the veranda at the Omni Mt Washington Hotel which was quite grand (wear resort attire, not camp clothes). We enjoyed hiking and many waterfalls in the state park. There is a train that takes you on a tour of the state park. Cell coverage is weak everywhere in the area. Grocery stores and pharmacies are few and far between.

Four Mile Creek State Park, Youngstown, New York

Spacious, grassy sites with 50 AMP hookup. Lots of weekenders partying, but not obnoxious or noisy. Interior roads were easy to navigate, and backing in our 40' fifth wheel was easiest ever. This is basically a huge, grassy park with RVs of all sizes and tents in huge sites. No water or sewer. Nice state park and good value. We camped at Four Mile Creek State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Smuggler's Den Campground, Southwest Harbor, Maine

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $55.00
Overall Rating:

Nice, semi-rustic, clean, well maintained, friendly park. This campground is on "The Quiet Side" of Mount Desert Island with quick access to a small grocery and the quaint town of Southwest Harbor. It was a short, easy drive to Bass Harbor, Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. All RV sites have a gravel drive and cement parking pad/patio, nice picnic table and a fire ring. Electrical, water and sewer were all good. We had a 50 AMP back in site (#90) that was easy to get into and out of. The pool is large and sparkling. Trees are maintained for easy navigating on interior roads. AT&T connectivity was one bar LTE. Camp cable had dozens of channels. WIFI was adequate during the week. The campground abuts Echo Lake, and it can be accessed from Smuggler's Den with an easy hike. This camp was a nice place from which to enjoy the beauty and amusements available on Mount Desert Island. We would stay here again. We camped at Smuggler's Den Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

1) Bass Harbor Lighthouse is pretty if you view it from the rocks (path is to the left of the parking lot). 2) Thurston's Lobster Pound in Bernard was the best and cheapest. 3) Beal's Lobster Pound was good. 4) Bar Harbor Whale Watch Company in Bar Harbor had large ships for their Whale and Puffin Tour. Don't miss the drive AND hike around Cadillac Mountain. Hiking the seawall is lovely. Gas is easy to find on the Island, but there are not many grocery stores.

Augusta / Gardiner KOA, Richmond, Maine

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $52.00
Overall Rating:

This KOA has new owners, and they are lovely. They are working hard to fix things up, and soon this should be a great camp. Right now, it is very rough. This is a KOA "Journey" camp with a pool and no other frills, making the >$50 price tag outrageous. We were greeted pleasantly, sign in was quick, and we were escorted to our site. Access to all sites is up a relatively steep hill. Each site is surrounded by trees making it very difficult for big rigs to navigate into and out of their pull through. Sites are hard compacted gravel that made it easy to level our 40' rig. Electrical and water hookups are good, and are located in the middle of the site. The sewer is all the way at the rear of the site. Even with trees we were able to open all of our slides, but not the awnings (and they weren't needed in the shade). This camp is in the forest so there is absolutely no way to use a satellite dish for TV, and only a few channels are available via antenna. There is no cable. The camp WIFI worked well. AT&T was at two bars LTE. We camped at Augusta / Gardiner KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Gunsmoke RV Park, Dodge City, Kansas

Overall Rating:

This is a family owned park that is nice for a one-night stop-over or a longer visit. Upon checking the owner carefully went over all the rules, and we had to sign an acknowledgement, but the rules are just common etiquette for RVers (I.e. Clean up after your dog). The camp was easy to navigate with our 40' fifth wheel. Hook ups were easy to reach and worked well. We had good reception on our dateline dish, and we had adequate ATT cell service. The camp was quiet at night even though it was near a main highway. We camped at Gunsmoke RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
