McLain's RV Fort Worth, Fort Worth, Texas

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

This site is hidden behind two RV superstores, Camping World and McLain's., and in front of a nice cul-de-sac subdivision. $40 is expensive when you don't have cable or a sewer hookup. But if you need a spot to park overnight to get serviced, it is unbeatable. It is a small concrete lot, six sites, spaced for privacy. I left my camper for a trip to Waco and returned to find everything OK. The attendant on duty should probably not admit that the site boosts prices in peak times to customers, though. I will stay there again when I pick up my repaired trailer. We camped at McLain's RV Fort Worth in a Travel Trailer.

Shady Lake RV Park, Sulphur Springs, Texas

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $32.00
Overall Rating:      

I called about 8 est and the manager agreed to reserve me a spot. My pad was conveniently near the office. I enjoyed a full hookup, a nearby pond with a warning sign about alligators, and plenty of grass to walk my dogs on. I commend the maintenance man for being extra helpful to me in loaning me his ladder and a screwdriver to replace a broken vent. I met the owner and was pleased to stay at at site with a pic of Kelsey Gramer as a guest. Both a Walmart and Pilot were within 4 miles, although my GPS made it seem next door. I would stay there again. We camped at Shady Lake RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Magnolia RV Park Resort, Vicksburg, Mississippi

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

This site actually makes arrangements for late night visitors. I had called ahead and prepaid though. I dont recall a camping site sign on the interstate exits, but I consider this a hidden gem. The owner reserved me a end site where I simply pulled into. My neighbors were a mix of all races and class, but I felt safe enough to grill out the only time on my trip. A picnic table was nearby. I had a full hookup. My only concern was my proximity to the Mississippi River and the parking area being so low, but it was not a problem. I would stay there again. We camped at Magnolia RV Park Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Paragon Casino Resort RV Park, Marksville, Louisiana

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

I had to backtrap 75 miles to here after arriving late outside Natchez, MS and being unable to secure a rental. Most places I called were closed, no concessions made for next morning payment, and the places that did answer seemed uninterested in one overnight stay. The Paragon answered and did not disappoint. I prepaid and the attendent on duty made arrangements with security for my late night arrival. The park was spacious, modern, pet friendly, with full hookups. I considered this stay worth the amount I paid. I would stay there again. We camped at Paragon Casino Resort RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

B & B RV Park, Donaldsonville, Louisiana

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

This is a cash only site. I called late to make sure of a vacancy and was greeted by help at manager's office upon my arrival. The sites were back-in and I received aid in doing so. The interesting thing was I had to park off the concrete pad onto the gravel, I suppose, because another trailer was a slide out that took too much room. There was a laundromat and dog walking area, complete with poop bags. A grocery store was nearby, actually closer than Google led me to believe. I would stay there again. We camped at B & B RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Fontainebleau State Park, Mandeville, Louisiana

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $34.00
Overall Rating:      

My complaint about this stay was the inexperienced customer service. I handed the clerk my drivers license at check-in for him to get my information, but he handed it back to me so I had to recite. I assumed answering I wanted a full hookup when asked meant I would get it. The desk said when I asked why I had only electricity and water that full hookup sites were limited. Although there was a free dump station, this jaded my experience. The campground was packed when I arrived, families grilling almost like a tailgate experience, but by 10-11, the grounds were quiet. I saw communal bathrooms, but did not use them. I would stay again after clarifying the charges. We camped at Fontainebleau State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Four Seasons Ranch & RV Park, Terrell, Texas

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

Discounted fee to $20 because manager lacked change. Concrete pad had wood blocks and abandoned waste hose on site. Electric outlet on edge of ditch of water with board for others to walk on. Surge protector dislocated because of frequent crossing of others on board. I felt unsafe the whole night but nothing happened. Value for $20, but anything more is a waste. Place to stay of last resort. We camped at Four Seasons Ranch & RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

East Fork COE, Wylie, Texas

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

Only place on lake I found open. Elderly staff were helpful, friendly, not nosy. Yes, the road was not paved in campground, had to use community dump, but value nonetheless to have a safe place to stay. Walmart was less than five miles away and Wylie had most usual stores early. The lake was a five minute walk from my site. As Plano lacks an urban rv park, this is a good alternative. Lot #3. We camped at East Fork COE in a Travel Trailer.
