Gunsmoke RV Park, Dodge City, Kansas

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $38.00
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.

Oasis RV Resort, Amarillo, Texas

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

We stayed two days as a respite during a long trip. The campground was near the freeway for quick on-off for travelers, but not so close that we were bothered by traffic noise. The park is well laid out for easy manuevering and easy pull-through. Dog park was good enough but nothing special. It looked like the pool was pleasant, but it was not open at the time of our visit. There was a nice playground. All hookups were easy to reach and worked well. ATT cellular service was good. The park was mostly weekend campers and overnight travelers. I did not see any longterm campers. We camped at Oasis RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Victory RV Park and Campground, Paducah, Kentucky

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

This is a quiet, family owned park located just a few minutes from Paducah, KY. All sites are pull through, and all hook ups were easy to reach. All services worked well. The sites are sunny with newly trees planted, picnic tables and fire rings. It is not a resort by any means, but will provide a nice stopover for travelers, or pleasant family time for weekend campers. We had good reception our satellite dish and on ATT cellular. We camped at Victory RV Park and Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

McDowell Nature Preserve, Charlotte, North Carolina

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

McDowell is a beautiful county park located on the Lake Wylie reservoir, very near Charlotte, NC. Electric and water are provided but no sewers. The roads in the campground are tight, but we were able to manage by going very slowly with our 40' fifth wheel. The camp ground is a pretty, wooded environment and has about 100 sites (tents & RVs). We pre-paid our reservations for 14 days while visiting relatives in the area. The first night I used a whole bottle of a bleach-based bathroom cleaner in an effort to get the shower somewhat usable. It barely treated the mold from thick black stains and webs to brown, but at least I was confident the bleach killed any possible staph or MRSA. The next day a camp worker informed us they try to clean showers and bathrooms now and then as the cleaning service is only provided once a month. I was shocked at that news because hundreds of campers were in the park, and all were using just a few of the remaining, working bathrooms/showers. Our 50 amp breaker went out the second day, on a Thursday evening. The camp manager seemed unconcerned but offered to put in a request for an electrician. She said she could not relocate us. We explained we were concerned because our batteries were depleting while running our fridge, and temps were in the 90's with no AC. She said, "It's a county park. That's what you get." The manager never bothered to tell us the county electrician would not be coming until Monday at the soonest. When we finally learned that news from another camp worker on Saturday, in order to save our batteries and freezer full of food, we had to leave the park. A week later, we are still waiting to find out if the county will approve a refund of our two week pre-payment. I would NOT recommend this park unless you can use your own bathroom/shower, and you have a backup generator. We camped at McDowell Nature Preserve in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

We have been fulltiming for two years, and these were BY FAR the filthiest shower/toilet facility we have seen anywhere. I am not a sanitation specialist, but in my opinion, the bathroom/shower filth seems to be a serious health hazard. I suggest you take bleaching agents with you if you plan to use their showers or toilets.

Heber RV Park, Heber, Arizona

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

This is a meticulously maintained park with plenty of pleasant staffers to offer assistance or a friendly hello. We had a pull through site covered by beautiful tall pines. Even so, we had no trouble getting reception on our satelitte dish. ATT cellular service was adequate, but I did not use it for FaceTiming or streaming videos. The campground has a quaint, rustic ambience that is fitting for the Mogollon Rim, and the cooler temperatures are a nice break from the heat down in the valley. We camped at Heber RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Beaver KOA, Beaver, Utah

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $39.00
Overall Rating:      

Just passing through on our way to Lake Powell. Easy to find from the freeway, but no so close that we heard any road noise. Wide interior roads with wide pull thru sites with easy access to well maintained hookups. Pleasant camping experience and beautiful scenery. We had three bars of LTE cell coverage with AT&T. Camp cable worked well with plenty of channels. Owners take pride in their property. We would return. We camped at Beaver KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Colter Bay Village RV Park -- Full Hookups (Concessionaire Operated) , Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $60.00
Overall Rating:      

Many campsites are on a slope and are seriously rutted, making it difficult to impossible to level your RV. Even so, we enjoyed the rustic camping ambiance with sites tucked among the fir trees. The camp's location made it easy to get to most sights in the middle-to-northern end of the Park. The campground has private separation while still being conveniently adjacent to the Visitor Center, restaurant, marina, grocery store and activities center. We camped at Colter Bay Village RV Park -- Full Hookups (Concessionaire Operated) in a Fifth Wheel.

Yellowstone Grizzly RV Park, West Yellowstone, Montana

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $65.00
Overall Rating:      

This park is pricey, but worth it if you can't get a Yellowstone campground. The park is within easy proximity to all stores and restaurants in West Yellowstone, and it is just a few blocks from the Park's west gate. It is extremely clean with nicely groomed, level sites, well positioned utilities, and a nice grassy area with a patio and picnic table. We have a 40' fifth wheel and barely had enough room to park our truck. There were several overflow parking spots very nearby. Bathrooms, showers and laundry were spotless, spacious and modern. AT&T cell service was barely adequate. We were not able to get much use out of the camp WIFI service. The staff was very helpful and gave us a lot of information about local sights and services. We used our DISH satellite for our usual shows, as well as the camp cable for local channels. We camped at Yellowstone Grizzly RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Ambassador RV Resort, Caldwell, Idaho

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $31.00
Overall Rating:      

Level, narrow lots with hookups at the rear. The rig sat on gravel, and there was a long cement patio with a narrow area of grass. We had enough room with our four slides to put out our awnings. Nice dog ice dog park. Pool was pretty small but seemed adequate. Guests were mostly one night travelers in well maintained rigs. Maintenance men stayed busy all day keeping the park nice, and they picked up trash any time of day. We stayed for the Caldwell Night Rodeo, and that was a blast. We camped at Ambassador RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

We visited Silver City ghost town. It looks like it did when people walked away 100 years ago. The hotel was open, and we had some delicious desert. Suggest you go on a week day as they said weekends are packed with no place to park. We attended the Caldwell Night Rodeo, our first rodeo ever, and we had a great time. That was a big highlight of our trip.

Pendleton KOA , Pendleton, Oregon

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $39.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a "KOA Journey" park which means it is intended as a temporary layover park, and has no resort amenities. It was very clean and situated on a bluff overlooking a scenic valley. Sites were extraordinarily tight with a skinny patch of grass and sharp gravel rocks. If we had our awnings out, our neighbors could not open theirs.

Lots of site utility poles were bent as if they had been hit by a rig or two. Utilities were poorly located at the far rear of each site, and required us to purchase additional hoses (at high price). Water pressure was good, and no electrical surges. We have a 37.5' fifth wheel and barely had enough room to squeeze our truck behind the rig. The same five vehicles were parked in the overflow parking during the entire week, so we could not park there.

In spite of multiple boosters, WIFI was abysmal. We used AT&T for our cell phones and had three bars of LTE coverage. It was plenty for streaming movies. The camp cable only had 20 or so local channels from Yakima, WA. We used our DISH satellite if we wanted cable channels.

The dog park and playground were nicely maintained. I would stay here again only as an overnight stop. We camped at Pendleton KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Mt Hood Village RV Resort, Welches, Oregon

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $55.00
Overall Rating:      

This camp has a restaurant, pool and is near the river if you like to kayak or fish. It is an short drive to Government Camp and Mt Hood, and a pleasantdrive to Columbia River Gorge. Lots and lots of families so the he pool is filled with kids. All sites are different, so we really cannot speak to levelness or location of utilities. We were in #1 which was a pull through. It was on a slope in the pines, and where it was level, the site was very, very damp. Still, the wooded ambience was great. We camped at Mt Hood Village RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Umpqua Riverfront RV Park & Boat Ramp, Oakland, Oregon

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

If traveling on I-5 in Oregon, it is worth it to drive 20 minutes west to this camp. We found it the perfect place to unplug, unwind, and reconnect. It is a serene and family friendly camping environment. All campsites are pull-through, facing the river, and shaded by mature, poplar trees that have been carefully pruned to accommodate the tallest rigs. Even on the hottest days a comfortable breeze came down the river gorge. Newly renovated laundry. Showers and bathrooms were nicely done and immaculate. A private, wheelchair accessible shower/bathroom is reserved solely for seniors and disabled persons. A stainless steel fish cleaning station and boat ramp make it easy for fishermen, and the owners came around every evening with complimentary ice. AT&T cell coverage was spotty with only one bar of 4G, but that is to be expected in the forest. Cable is also not available in the forest, but our satellite dish worked well. Being right on the river made swimming, tubing, fishing and kayaking easy and fun. We camped in a 40' fifth wheel with enough space for our RV, tent and tow vehicle. The sewer hookup was located at the extreme rear of the site which might be a problem for some. We had enough sewer hose, but the owners will loan sewer extensions if you need it. We definitely want to return to Umpqua Riverfront RV Park and Boat Ramp. We camped at Umpqua Riverfront RV Park & Boat Ramp in a Fifth Wheel.

Ancient Redwoods RV Park, Redcrest, California

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $42.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a small, well maintained campground, not a resort. It is at a beautiful location on the Avenue of the Giants, and is operated by the owners of the Immortal Tree Gift Shop. All sites are pull through, level, in the sun with grass, and are adequately wide. Each site is a different length, and you can choose from any of the vacant spots. Our AT&T cell phone signal was adequate at the campground. We used their TV cable to access local stations along with our DISH satellite for our cable stations. Electric, water and sewer connections were reasonably positioned. Water pressure was adequate but not excessive. We did not have any electrical issues. Most campers were truly campers and not long term residents. We enjoyed having evening fires and picked a few quarts of blackberries. There is no nighttime security, but we didn't feel we needed it. Bathrooms, showers and laundry room were basic, secure and cleaned well daily. Owners are pleasant and take pride in their ownership. We stayed four days and would be happy to return. We camped at Ancient Redwoods RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Park of the Sierras - Escapees Park (members only), Coarsegold, California

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $12.00
Overall Rating:      

We had a beautiful, level, tree lined site that was more than long enough for our 40' fifth wheel and 20' long truck. Volunteers escorted us to our site and assisted with back in. All utilities were well positioned. We were asked not to use our washer because of septic tank limitations. That was easy because the laundry room was very clean with a dozen washers and dozen dryers all in good condition. A load cost a total of $2.00 for washing and drying. The campground is gated, and we felt very safe. Cable worked well. AT&T had strong signal. Most of the RVers were permanent or seasonal residents. We stayed for 10 days and enjoyed the lovely park and friendly campers. Residents are mostly 70+ in age, and there is no pool. It is quiet and restful. We camped at Park of the Sierras - Escapees Park (members only) in a Fifth Wheel.
