Victoria Campground COE, Woodstock, Georgia

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $29.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a very nice and wooded campground on the lake. There are lots of trees so not many sites have a clear view of the lake, but you can see the lake through the trees and there is easy access to it. The sites are spacious and have plenty of privacy thanks to the trees. The camp hosts are very nice as well. Verizon worked okay there, but with our booster it was better. AT&T actually worked better than Verizon. The only thing we did not like about this campground is it felt like we had a curfew. They lock the gate so you can't get in or out between 9pm and 7am. Not only does that seem unsafe in case of emergencies, but it's also inconvenient if we wanted to be out past 9pm, or if we had guests that didn't want to have to leave the park by 8:30pm (that's the rule for guests). Our purpose for staying there was to visit my sister who lives in that town and if we went to her house for the evening, we didn't want to have to get home by 9pm so we just ended up spending the night at her house. And when she visited us it was inconvenient that she had to leave by 8:30. This was in October and I believe the hours are a little better in the summer, but it's still a little unsettling knowing you're locked in for the night. In 3 years of fulltime travel we've never been at a campground that does this. We have been at several that have gates, but they always have a code so that people staying there can get in or out after hours. It would be nice if this park would implement a gate with a code. We camped at Victoria Campground COE in a Fifth Wheel.

Hot Springs National Park KOA, Hot Springs, Arkansas

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

This is a nice KOA. Our truck did not fit in the site with our RV, but there was convenient parking close by. During the week the park wasn't full but by the weekend it got really crowded. The location is very convenient for visiting Hot Springs National Park. We did not use the campground shuttle, but we should have. It's very hard to find parking in Hot Springs. The camp hosts were so friendly and fun to talk to throughout the week. The only reason I don't give this park 5 stars is because they charge extra for kids. There are no extra amenities for kids so it doesn't make sense to charge extra for them. In Fulltime Families (FtF) we call that a "kid tax" and try to avoid parks that charge it, but sometimes it's unavoidable. Verizon worked very well there. We camped at Hot Springs National Park KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Fort Amarillo RV Resort, Amarillo, Texas

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

This is our second time staying here. The sites are easy in and easy out and quite long. We had plenty of room for our 41 ft 5th wheel and truck. The park is nicely landscaped with a nice indoor pool also. The first time we stayed there in April 2016 I was disappointed to find a hole where the hot tub is supposed to be. I assumed they were just fixing it and it would actually be there this time, but the same hole was still there so I guess they're not planning to fix it. The office staff are super helpful and friendly, and I love that they waive the extra charge for kids for Fulltime Families members. Thank you for that! Verizon worked very well here. We camped at Fort Amarillo RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Twin Fountains RV Park, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $44.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a very pretty park with paved sites, nice landscaping and good spacing between most sites. We had a long pull-through (site E6) that was right next to the mini-golf course which our kids loved. The site was pretty tight for our 41 ft 5th wheel and we had trouble getting situated just right so that the slides could go out on both sides. There was a tree on one side and the mini golf course on the other which made it challenging to fit just right, but eventually we got it to work. The amenities like the pool area and mini golf are really nice. I also like that they don't charge extra for kids like so many parks do, thank you for that! The park is right next to an interstate so it's noisy, but we run our AC fan at night so the noise didn't bother us. They advertise a free shuttle which ended up being pretty useless for us. I wrongly assumed the shuttle would take us to the downtown memorial, but they don't drive that far. Then we tried to take the shuttle out for dinner, but they close early and wouldn't be able to pick us up after dinner so what good is that? Anyway, it was still a great park for visiting the Oklahoma City area. Also, Verizon worked well there. We camped at Twin Fountains RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Peacock Meadows Riverside RV Park, South Fork, Colorado

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

This is probably one of the nicest parks in the South Fork area. The sites are generously sized so you don't feel crowded by a neighbor. We usually don't use the restrooms, but our kids used the showers and I have to say they have the nicest private bathrooms/showers I have ever seen at a campground. There were immaculate! And the common area/kitchen room where they have get together's and pot-lucks is beautiful! You can really tell that the campground management puts a lot of effort into making this place beautiful. The fishing pond and Rio Grande river behind the campground was beautiful with all the trees in bright fall colors reflecting in the water. The camp hosts were so friendly and nice and it was a pleasant check-in. Verizon worked well there, and also the park WiFi was the best campground WiFi we have ever experienced. It worked better than our Verizon MiFi! I only have 2 issues with the campground which is why I won't give them 5 stars. First, they charge extra for kids. I can understand a park charging extra for kids when they have a lot of amenities for kids, but this park does not have anything extra for kids except for a tiny playground that was too small for our kids. Our community of fulltime traveling families call this a "kid tax" and we usually avoid parks that charge it. The second thing is the park was mostly empty when we were there, but they parked other campers on both sides of us a couple of times during the week. I don't understand the logic of cramming people right next to each other when there are so many empty sites available to spread people out a little more. We camped at Peacock Meadows Riverside RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Jordanelle State Park, Heber City, Utah

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $31.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a beautiful state park! We loved our site #61 which was a pull-through and the outdoor living area was very private. The opposite side had a view of the lake, but our living side did not. The site was level and plenty long enough for our 41 ft. 5th wheel and truck. The surrounding mountains were covered in gorgeous fall colors. The day we got there it was snowing a little bit and the mountains in the distance were covered in snow, but during the week it melted. It was so beautiful! Verizon worked well there. We were not too far from Park City Mountain where we spent a day playing on the alpine slides and coaster. That was so much fun! We loved our stay there and would definitely return next time we are in the area. We camped at Jordanelle State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Farewell Bend State Recreation Area, Huntington, Oregon

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

We came here after several weeks of busy exploring in Washington and Oregon. There is nothing to do in this area, but that is just what we needed... a week of downtime. There are not many stores or anything nearby so stock up before you come. The campsites in the C loop are large with generous spacing between sites. The Snake River was behind our site and we had a beautiful view. When we first pulled into our site my phone showed no Verizon at all so I was afraid we wouldn't be able to stay since we work remotely and rely on cell coverage. We put up the booster and got 4G that worked surprisingly well for the entire week. Phone was a little weak but still usable with one 1 or 2 dropped calls during the week. AT&T did not work at all even with the booster. The campground was very quiet and peaceful when we were there in late September. We camped at Farewell Bend State Recreation Area in a Fifth Wheel.

Concrete / Grandy Creek KOA, Concrete, Washington

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $3.00
Overall Rating:      

We enjoyed our stay. Check-in was quick and easy and it wasn't hard to find a nice site. The sites had a nice amount of space separating them from other sites, which we appreciated since we don't like campgrounds that put every site so close together. At least we had some room to sit outside without feeling crowded by a neighbor. The views around the campground were beautiful and it was conveniently located for visiting North Cascades National Park. Verizon worked well there.

We were a little disappointed that the bounce pad costs extra, but we were so busy when we were there that our kids never ended up using it anyway. We did play mini golf a couple of times and like most Thousand Trails, the mini golf is pretty run down and could use an upgrade. Since this park is also a KOA it was a little surprising to find the mini golf in such bad shape. Anyway, overall this was a nice place to stay and we would stay here again. We camped at Concrete / Grandy Creek KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Elwha Dam RV Park, Port Angeles, Washington

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $46.00
Overall Rating:      

This campground has the nicest owners of any campground we have ever been to. They are the most helpful and accommodating people and we really enjoyed our stay. We prefer sites with trees and privacy. At first we were in a full hookup pull-through with neighbors, but they let us move to a larger, private tent site with trees. The tent site had water and electric and they have a pump out service so we were happier in that site. We travel fulltime and it can be hard to get caught up on mail and deliveries on the road; I was very thankful that they allowed me to have packages delivered there. It can also be hard to find places to get my hair done on the road. I went to Envy Hair Techniques in Port Angeles where they did a fantastic job on my hair. This RV park is a perfect location for visiting the area. We visited Olympic National Park and took the ferry to Victoria, BC. Olympic is huge so it's a bit of a drive to some of the sections but close to Hurricane Ridge. There is so much to do in this section of WA that we didn't get to do everything we wanted to so we hope to come back again someday. Verizon and AT&T both worked well there. We camped at Elwha Dam RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Fort Stevens State Park, Hammond, Oregon

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $32.00
Overall Rating:      

Our favorite Oregon state park! This place is huge and has so much to offer. The campsites are very nice and we fit fine in our 40 ft. 5th wheel. I loved the miles of paved bike trails. We visited the fort/historical area and the ship wreck on the beach. There is a lake where you can fish. The northern tip of the park is beautiful where you can see the ocean on one side and the mouth of the Columbia river on the other side. On a clear day you can see Astoria across the river as well as the state of Washington. We only stayed 4 days and really could have spent more time. Next time we are in Oregon we will definitely come back. Verizon was pretty weak, but worked okay with a booster, AT&T worked better. We camped at Fort Stevens State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Nehalem Bay State Park, Nehalem, Oregon

Overall Rating:      

Beautiful state park with paved, level sites. We have a 40 ft 5th wheel and were able to fit into site A41 with no trouble. The sites along this stretch of the A loop seemed to have a little more room around them than sites in the rest of the campground. We backed up to woods for a little privacy. The loops can be tight to drive around as you're getting to your site, especially when it's crowded with lots of people and vehicles in or near the road. We arrived on a weekday and didn't have any trouble. There are wonderful paved bike trails at this park, as well as plenty of beach access. Verizon and AT&T both worked well there. We ate dinner one night at the Pizza Garden nearby which was wonderful, they use all fresh ingredients. We camped at Nehalem Bay State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Cape Lookout State Park, Tillamook, Oregon

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

We have a 40 ft. 5th wheel and although we fit in our site, I wouldn't say this campground is very suitable for big rigs. It's difficult to drive through the loops with a larger RV and most of the people camping there are in tents and small RVs. It felt a little awkward being the only big rig surrounded by tents because people kept walking by our site and commenting about how large our RV is. It happens to be our home since we are fulltimers, but we couldn't really explain that to everyone that walked by wondering why we have something so big for camping. We were in site C21 which is full hookup, but the dish washing station is right in the site which meant all the tenters had to come into our site to wash their dishes. This was a little awkward for them and us, but I tried to make the best of it and chat with any of them that were willing to talk to me. Other than feeling like quite the spectacle at this campground with everyone staring at us, the park is very nice. It's a short walk to a beautiful beach with gorgeous sunsets. We also visited nearby Cape Meares which was very beautiful and worth a visit. Verizon worked okay with a booster, but AT&T worked better. We camped at Cape Lookout State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Thousand Trails - Whalers Rest RV Park, South Beach, Oregon

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $3.00
Overall Rating:      

We really enjoyed our stay! When we first checked in the nice man working in the booth directed us to a site for rigs larger than 38 feet. We really appreciated that since we are 41 feet. We loved our site! We also loved the indoor pool and hot tub and the activities like a magic show and candy bar bingo. One lady employee wasn't very friendly and asked us more than once why we were in a site for rigs larger than 38 feet. I don't know why she kept asking us this, if she just looked at our rig I think it's pretty clear we are larger than 38 feet. She also wasn't very friendly when I needed to pick up a package, but I was very thankful to the other lady employee that helped me instead. Anyway, we loved our time there and were not too bothered by the not so friendly employee. Verizon data does not work there at all, but with a booster we were able to use talk and text only. However, AT&T data worked very well. We camped at Thousand Trails - Whalers Rest RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

South Beach State Park, Newport, Oregon

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

This wasn't one of our favorite state parks. It's in a great location and that was the part we did like, but what we didn't like is how crowded and noisy it is and how close the sites are together. We are used to having some sort of privacy at state parks, with trees and space, but this park was not like that. The sites are really close together and there was constant noise and activity all day long. Our site (B13) was right on the main road which may have contributed to the noise level, there were vehicles, bikes, and people constantly going by the campsite. I imagine it may not be like that during the off season, but summer was not the best time to be there for us since we prefer a lot more space and privacy. The paved trails that lead to the beach are very nice, and the paved South Jetty trail was also great for biking. We rode our bikes down to the Rogue Brewery for a tour and dinner one evening which was really fun. This park really is in a great location if you can overlook the constant noise and activity around the campground. Also, Verizon worked very well there. We camped at South Beach State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

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

We are not always fans of Thousand Trails campgrounds, but this one is great! We typically like state parks with large and private sites. This TT park is more like a state park than an RV park and we had a great site that was large and private like we normally get at a state park. The park has nice amenities like tubing down the Little Deschutes river. It's also in a great location for visiting Sunriver and Bend. There is so much to do in this area, I wish we could have stayed longer. Verizon and AT&T both worked very well at this campground. The only downside is no sewer hookups at the campsites.
