River Country Campground, Gadsden, Alabama

Date of Stay: March, 2017 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

Stayed overnight here. The park is located right on the Coosa River. It has a marina on site. The pool and other facilites are excellent and even includes a small chapel building. Unfortunately, they seem to focus on their facilities at the detriment of their sites and interior roads both of which greatly need to have gravel laid on them. The site we were on had little gravel remaining on it so it was mostly grass. Cable worked well. I did not try the wifi. The pool, etc. deserves a 10 rating, but the RV sites are no better than a 5 given their poor condition. The park does not give any discounts for RV club memberships. We camped at River Country Campground in a Motorhome.

We have 3 different sources of GPS directions. All were confused by this park's location. After being taken in a loop past the park on a road with no access to the park, I stopped in a parking lot and called the park for directions and was able to easily get to the park. The park is located near several major highways so there is some road noise, but it did not bother us. It is convenient to services and restaurants.

Williston Crossings RV Resort, Williston, Florida

Date of Stay: March, 2017 - $60.00
Overall Rating:      

This is 1 of my top 3 RV parks. They kept all the trees so you feel like you are camping in a state park, but they aren't impeding on your RV while parked on your site. All of the facilities at this resort are very nice. The people are friendly. Several activities. The location is ok. That is my only complaint about this park is that the town of Williston only has a grocery store and a limited number of restaurants. For everything else, you need to drive 15-25 miles to Ocala or Gainsville. It also isn't convenient if you want to spend a day at a beach. Beware; there were some site owners in the park that are NOT dog friendly and act like they own the RV park so you need to be careful where you walk your dog. One came out and confronted us because our dog broke away from my wife and chased a squirrel onto a neighbor's lawn. We camped at Williston Crossings RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Flint River RV Park (formerly Bainbridge/Flint River KOA), Bainbridge, Georgia

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

Interior roads and sites were gravel at one time. They have since had grass grow through the gravel so they are now grass with some gravel. Roads were mostly dirt; particularly the exit road. We had to be selective about site we parked on; some were not very level. Cable did not work at all even though it was supposed to be functional on the site we were on. Good location right across the road from a marina/park on the river. Located just outside Bainbridge where there is shopping, restaurants, etc. Could be a decent park if they would invest in some gravel on the sites and interior roads. It is an OK location to stop for the night or if you are desperate to be on the river for some fishing. We camped at Flint River RV Park (formerly Bainbridge/Flint River KOA) in a Motorhome.

Orlando / Kissimmee KOA, Kissimmee, Florida

Date of Stay: December, 2016 - $72.00
Overall Rating:      

This is the nicest KOA I have ever stayed at. All paved roads and sites. Swimming pool with covered patio area, workout room, dog park, laundry room, playground, cable TV, and WiFi. Site width is ok. Site lengths are good with some up to about 75 feet. Location is fairly close to area attractions and very convenient to restaurants, shopping, etc. Not quite up to a true RV resort, but very close. It is just off US 192, but noise was not bad except for sirens at times during the night. We camped at Orlando / Kissimmee KOA in a Motorhome.

Cartersville / Cassville-White KOA, Cartersville, Georgia

Date of Stay: December, 2016 - $33.00
Overall Rating:      

Park is located near I-75, but no traffic noise was noticeable from our site. Most of the sites in the middle section of the park have trees. There is a pool, but it was not in service at this time. All of the sites are pull-through, but many are quite short; only long enough for a smaller trailer and possibly a tow vehicle. Only a few sites have sewer hook-up and most of these were the shorter sites. There is cable service with 48 channels. The park is fairly clean and adequate for an over night stop. The sites are not level. We camped at Cartersville / Cassville-White KOA in a Motorhome.

Clarksville RV Park & Campground, Clarksville, Tennessee

Date of Stay: December, 2016 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

We have stayed at this park several times previously when passing through the area. It is a good park for an overnight stop. The management is very pleasant to deal with and the park is clean. It is close to I-24 so there is some road noise. As others have mentioned, there is a scrap metal processing plant across the street. It has never been in operation when we have stayed at the park. We camped at Clarksville RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

Clarksville RV Park & Campground, Clarksville, Tennessee

Date of Stay: April, 2016 - $35.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a basic RV park that is very well maintained. The interior roads and sites are all gravel. The management does a good job of keeping adequate quantities of gravel on the roads and sites so that they do not become muddy. The sites are reasonably wide with at least one tree on each site providing for a pleasant amount of shade. The sewer connection is located at the rear of some of the sites requiring a long stinky sleaky to be used which is inconvenient. There is a picnic table at each site. The park does not offer cable TV which lowers the value of the park. For the price charged, I expect cable service. The park does offer WiFi which worked reasonably for e-mail and web browsing. The park is located right on the interstate so there is some road noise. It was not a large distraction for sleeping with the windows closed in our motor home. Overall, the park is neat, clean, and convenient to the interstate. We camped at Clarksville RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

There are numerous places to eat and shop at the Clarksville exit east of the park. The section of I-24 between Nashville and the Kentucky/Tennessee state line is pretty void of truck stops to conveniently purchase diesel for a large RV. You need to stop either in the Nashville area or just past the Kentucky/Tennessee state line.

Birmingham South Campground, Pelham, Alabama

Date of Stay: April, 2016 - $37.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a difficult park to rate. There are some sites that are average while others are well below average. This is the 2nd time we have overnighted here in 3 years and I saw no improvements from 2.5 years ago. The perk is still a worn down old KOA. It is a convenient place relative to I-65 to stop and that's about it. There are many restaurants and stores within about 3 miles which adds to the convenience. They have a nice pool and the showers appear clean although nothing fancy. There are several long term residents and several rough looking sites. They have WiFi, but I didn't try using it. There is no cable TV offered, which I would expect at $40/night. This should be priced at less than $35/night before discount for what is offered. We camped at Birmingham South Campground in a Motorhome.

Playa Del Rio, Pensacola, Florida

Date of Stay: April, 2016 - $58.00
Overall Rating:      

This park was a big disappointment. If you look at their website, you are left with the feeling that this park is much nicer than it really is. They have all these nice architectural renditions on their website which turn out to be nothing more than what they plan to do with this park; not what it is today. It is no better than an average park and I'm being generous at that. It has a good location. It backs up to the inter-coastal waterway. If you have a boat, they have some slips, but I'm not sure they are free for RV'ers to use. There is a private boardwalk to the beach located across the highway. The restrooms and showers were clean, but older and only 1 shower stall. There are several chairs to sit in the grassy area overlooking the inter-coastal waterway which is a nice relaxing place to sit. There is no pool or hot tub. The sites on the west side have concrete pads for your RV and brick pavers for a patio and to park your vehicle with a narrow strip of landscaping between. The sites on the west side are wide enough to not feel like you are looking into your neighbor's RV. The east side has not been redone yet. Some have broken concrete pads or gravel/sand with it mostly being sand. Several of the RV's there were very old and pretty shabby. The occupants were, well, "colorful" as well. This could be a nice little park someday if you believe all their future plans. It's just not there now. We camped at Playa Del Rio in a Motorhome.

There are some very good restaurants in the area. Shipp's Harbor Grill (higher end more gourmet food) in Orange Beach and Fish River Grill (locals eat here) were both very good and a good value. If the Blue Angels are practicing at NAS Pensacola, go see them! The Museum of Naval Aviation there is also very interesting and well worth the 15 mile drive.

Pontchartrain Landing, New Orleans, Louisiana

Date of Stay: March, 2016 - $79.00
Overall Rating:      

This park is difficult to rate. It has an excellent clubhouse, pool, store, and a bar that serves pretty good food at a reasonable price compared to every place else in New Orleans. Those are the positives. The negatives are the road to the park is very rough. The interior roads and sites are entirely gravel and dirt with them rapidly approaching just dirt. There are low spots that filled with water and mud when it rained. We rented a pull-in, "Super Site" that faced the ship canal. The site we were assigned was so narrow there was no room for us to sit at the side of our coach with our slides out to watch TV. As a matter of fact, we had to turn sideways to walk between our slide outs and the landscaping to get to our toad parked sideways at the rear of our site. This wasn't a huge problem since we didn't come to NO to watch TV or even sit at the RV site but, when you're paying an average of $79/night (with Good Sam discount) it would be nice to get a reasonable space. This park has everything from Marathon Prevost buses to pop-up campers. The resort has a shuttle to/from the French Quarter that goes round trip 5 times per day, but they charge $6 per person per day to use it. Given the price that is charged for the not so nice sites, it would be good to include the shuttle service for free. There is cable TV with a very weak signal and I was never able to connect to the WiFi. The problem with N.O. is there are very few options to choose from that are within reasonable distance to the city. The only other decent park in N.O. is the French Quarter RV Resort which is always full and costs from $95-$150 per night depending on the dates you want. We camped at Pontchartrain Landing in a Motorhome.

Lafayette KOA, Scott, Louisiana

Date of Stay: March, 2016 - $52.00
Overall Rating:      

Unfortunately, KOA campgrounds just seem to always be over priced for what they offer. This campground though is probably in the top 3 of KOA's we have stayed at. I agree with other reviewers that it is close to I-10 and as a result has a lot of highway noise. It was little more than a constant drone inside our coach with our windows closed and didn't impact my ability to sleep. The interior roads are asphalt and the pads are concrete. Some reported that the pads were all broken up and uneven. That was not my experience. Our pad was fairly level. I checked out the pads on 2 aisles in the park and did not see any that were broken up and unlevel. Yes, there were cracks in the edges of several of the pads, but that was about it. Most of the sites have trees on them and the areas that aren't concrete are for the most part covered in gravel. The cable TV was excellent, but the WiFi was unusable. One odd thing was the cable TV connections are in a box between every other site so we had to stretch our coax to the passenger side of our coach. There is a nice fishing lake and several of the back-in sites are around the lake. The park was clean and neat. There is a picnic table at each site. The sites are of reasonable width. The staff were congenial and answered our questions both times we contacted the office. We camped at Lafayette KOA in a Motorhome.

There are numerous places to eat nearby; several of them within walking distance. Scott, LA claims to be the boudin sausage capital of the world. There is a restaurant/market next door to the KOA that serves various boudin recipes and cracklins. This is your opportunity to experience real Louisiana Cajun food. There is also a coffee shop nearby that serves beignets.

Advanced RV Resort, Houston, Texas

Date of Stay: March, 2016 - $53.00
Overall Rating:      

As many have already said, this is a nice RV park. From all the items displayed/stored around many of the RV's, it does appear that there are a large number of long term residents in the park. The park staff are very friendly and efficient. They escort you to your site, make sure everything is ok, and that you understand where all the connections are located. Speaking of connections; my biggest negative on this park is that the utility connections are located at the far back end of the site. We paid for a pull through site so we wouldn't have to disconnect our toad on this overnight stop, but almost had to disconnect our toad and park it in front of our motor home because the utilities are located so far back on the site. This might be a workable location for a 5th wheel, but I don't know of any class A motor home that has sewer or water connections towards the rear. I positioned our motor home so our toad was just off the road and still had to stretch a 25' water hose to the limit to reach the water connection. I then had to connect a 15' and a 10' "stinky slinky" together to reach the sewer connection. I don't understand why RV sites are ever constructed this way. Put the utilities in the center of the site where it works for all RV's. The park is secured with a gate requiring their magnetic card to enter. The roads and sites are all concrete. Each site has a small patio and picnic table. Several have trees on them. The site width is not generous, but is reasonable for this price range. The facilities were all nice, clean, and at the top of the resort type parks we have stayed at; particularly at this price point. We camped at Advanced RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Blazing Star RV Resort, San Antonio, Texas

Date of Stay: March, 2016 - $44.00
Overall Rating:      

The pool, clubhouse and other facilities are excellent. They are in the top for parks we've stayed at in this price range (anything nicer has been in the $60-$70 per night range). The interior roads are all asphalt and the sites are concrete with a small concrete patio and picnic table at each site. The sites were adequately long for us to easily fit our coach and toad on the site. The site did have a slope on the front so we had to position the coach towards the rear of the site in order to level it and park our toad on the front. The sites are on the narrow side, but not that bad. Several of the sites have shade trees on them, but it appeared in some cases that the trees could control where you park on the site in order to use slideouts and awnings without striking the trees. My biggest criticism of this resort is the minimal space for check-in parking (see tip below). We camped at Blazing Star RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Make sure you are northbound on Loop 1604 North from the intersection with Potranco Rd. The park is right after you pass the Calvary Hills Baptist Church. The entrance (a bit hidden) is right after the Blazing Star sign and stone wall. Get onto the emergency lane before reaching the park. I didn't get off the road soon enough and ended up with the rear of our toad partially blocking the right lane on the Loop 1604 as we waited to get into the resort check-in lane.

Abilene KOA, Abilene, Texas

Date of Stay: March, 2016 - $37.00
Overall Rating:      

As is typical with most KOA's we've stayed at, you pay more for what you get than any other campground. I will say this park was closer to being priced in line with what was offered than any other one we've stayed at, but only because we have a KOA discount card (or should I say Kard?). Most private campgrounds that offer what this one did and are in similar condition would be priced in the $30-$35. There is a pool, but being off-season it wasn't open. As others mentioned, the park says they are undergoing updating; at least that's what the sign said at the entrance. Personally, I didn't see any evidence of work being done other than the sign at the entrance. The interior roads and sites are gravel/sand/dirt. With the amount of gravel remaining, I'm being pretty generous in even including gravel in the description. The husband and wife that manage the place for the off-site (in CA) owner are very friendly as was all of the staff that work there. The pull-through sites are on the short side; barely providing sufficient room to fit our 40' motor home and attached Jeep, but the width was not bad. At least I didn't feel like we were right up against our neighbors. There appeared to be some long-term residents in the park, but all of the RV's were in decent condition. It is convenient to I-20. The cable service was very good. We camped at Abilene KOA in a Motorhome.

Oasis State Park, Portales, New Mexico

Date of Stay: March, 2016 - $14.00
Overall Rating:      

The sites are mostly pull-through. All are gravel/dirt as are the roads. The RV sites are water and electric only; no sewer hook-up. As others have mentioned, the dump station is not operational. There are several sites that have shade trees and are quite pleasant. I believe these are all 30 amp. There are a few 50 amp sites. These do not have shade trees. They do have a covered concrete pad with a picnic table. The sites are wide and long. The 30 amp sites are shorter, but appear to offer more length than is listed on the park's website. There is a stocked fishing pond. There are (2) handicap 50 amp sites with concrete pads. There park is about 12 miles from Clovis and may be 3 miles from Portales. It is truly an oasis in the desert. We camped at Oasis State Park in a Motorhome.
