We travel full-time in our 5th wheel - some call it "living the life". We would agree.

Navajo State Park, Arboles, Colorado

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $28.00
Overall Rating:

We had a great experience at Navajo State Park, located between Pagosa Springs and Durango, Colorado, and on the New Mexico border. This park is very well kept and the staff is super nice and helpful. We watched the Eclipse of 2017 at a watch party hosted by the Rangers. All streets are asphalt and very easy to navigate for big rigs. Sites are large gravel with curbing to set off the patio which includes a picnic table and fire pit/grill. Sites were very spacious - no shade trees; but have well maintained utilities and grounds. Attached to the bath and restrooms was a game room with laundry facilities. Those machines were fairly new and in great working order, only $1 per washer and $1.50 per dryer. We only hiked one trail; it could have been a little more cleared for our liking. Our site was right on the lake and we had a great view. We camped at Navajo State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Durango North / Riverside KOA, Durango, Colorado

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $53.00
Overall Rating:

This was our third time to stay at Durango Riverside Resort & RV Park. We absolutely adore the Animas River which runs along side of the park. While we were not able to get a riverside site this time, we still took in the view of the river from the deck that sits out into the river. It is really beautiful. This is a commercial park, so expect the sites to be about 25'x60'. The park is well maintained and offers a pool, laundry, ice cream hut, store, and gathering places such as the river deck and a lovely deck outside the office. Roads and sites are all gravel and easy to traverse even for large rigs. Our site was fairly level, only requiring a little assistance from us. The utilities, including the tv cable were in great working order. Cell phone and hot spot access can be a bit sketchy in the park. We camped at Durango North / Riverside KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

This park is 10 miles north of Durango and on the San Juan Skyway/Million Dollar Highway. A Beautiful drive all the way to Ouray - but very steep and many curves. It is fine in a truck or a tow vehicle, but sketchy for a large rig to maneuver.

Heron Lake State Park, Tierra Amarilla, New Mexico

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $18.00
Overall Rating:

This little park has some wonderful trails and the trail in the section of the park where we stayed offered a great place to watch the sunset and the dark skies made for some awesome star-gazing. Situated about 10 miles from Chama, NM., this park sits on a no-wake lake, making the surroundings quiet, which we really appreciated. The roads and sites are all large gravel. Our site was fairly level, very spacious, and had a fire pit and picnic table. There are only two full-hook up sites in the park and we had one of them. Utilities were in great working order and conveniently located on the site. The camp host is very friendly and helpful. We would definitely come back and stay here again.

Roadrunner RV Resort, Red River, New Mexico

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

Roadrunner is a very nice park. Red River actually runs through the middle of the park and there are many sites that back right up to the river's edge. Each site has ample space, though not what I would call spacious. Sites are shady and provide a picnic table and either a fire or bar-b-q pit. Sites are gravel and ours was level with only small assistance on our part. All of the hook-ups (our side was 30 amp/water/sewer) were in good working order. The gravel roads are easy to navigate with large rigs and the grounds were very quite at night. The mountain views are lovely, the staff and hosts very friendly and accommodating. There is a very nice laundromat conveniently located at the entrance of the park and on the park grounds a tennis court and playscape for the kids. The quaint, little town of Red River is within walking distance. You really can't go wrong with Roadrunner RV Resort in Red River - a great park in a beautiful little piece of heaven. We camped at Roadrunner RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

I highly recommend the Michael Martin Murphy Rocking Dinner and Concert. The Bar-B-Q was excellent and the concert most entertaining. Other places we recommend are the Walk with the Ranger (informational hike from the top of the ski lift) and Hidden Treasures was a great place to eat and offered live entertainment on Sunday afternoon. We attended church at the Community Center - it was a great service.

Travelers World Campground, Clovis, New Mexico

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $28.00
Overall Rating:

Travelers World is a good name for this utilitarian park. Gravel roads, typical spacing for a commercial park, and no frills. However, the service is great and the park is nice and clean. Located right on Hwy60/84 just outside of Clovis, New Mexico, Travelers World offers 30/50 amps full hook ups, cable, a laundry room, restroom/showers, and a playground for the kids. There is also a propane station on site. Not a destination, but definitely a good stop on the journey. We have already made our reservation for our trip back lot His way in 2 months.

Abilene State Park, Tuscola, Texas

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $18.00
Overall Rating:

We pulled into Abilene Texas State Park yesterday and are just enjoying the day here. The park is well shaded and there is a lovely swimming pool for the warm afternoons. It appears that they are cleaning up after some weather incident, but even so, the park is very well maintained. Pads are fairly level asphalt. Each site has a picnic table located on a concrete patio - no covering needed with the great shade. This park gives easy access to Abilene where you will find everything you might need; Wal-Mart, grocery stores, Abilene Mall, health services, etc. Just on the edge of west Texas, the sunsets here are pretty spectacular. Our site had water/50amp/dump station. Almost all of the state parks in Texas are good places to stop along the way to wherever. http://tpwd.texas.gov/ We camped at Abilene State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Buckhorn Creek COE, Jefferson, Texas

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $14.00
Overall Rating:

Don't let the name fool you, Buckhorn Creek Park is right on Lake O' the Pines, a rather vast body of water. There may have been a creek on the property, but the Lake is the view you see from all over this great Corps of Engineer's park. The grounds are manicured and clean. All of the sites and roads are asphalt and accommodate big rigs easily. Sites are extra-long and equipped with a concrete patio framed with gravel and a fire pit. E121 is fairly level. Utilities are well maintained and conveniently located on the site. This park offers 30/50 amp and water; no full-hook ups, but the park has a double-sided dump station. Other amenities are a boat ramp, playground, picnic area, hiking trails, swim beach, fishing dock, and group pavilions. As is the case at many parks located on lakes, it was a bit buggy; but you can't beat the view and easy water access. The park hosts were friendly and helpful, even after a big storm went through the park and knocked out all of the electricity. Not to worry, crews were on top of the problem and power was restored within 2 hours. We connected to our satellite and had both Verizon and AT&T coverage. We were only able to stay one night this time, but would definitely come back and stay again. We camped at Buckhorn Creek COE in a Fifth Wheel.

Maumelle COE, Little Rock, Arkansas

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $13.00
Overall Rating:

Maumelle Corps of Engineers Park, just outside of LIttle Rock, offers gorgeous views of the Arkansas River. The river is about 3/4 a mile wide and flows steady and strong. Add a forest of tall mature trees and you have one beautiful park. This park has four rv loops; some with 30 amp and water and other sites with 50 amp and water. I noticed some full-hook up sites that are marked for use of those with medical passes; I assume to help those who are in town for medical treatment in Little Rock, which is a very nice service for the park to offer. The interior roads are asphalt and easy to maneuver for any size rig. Sites are either concrete or asphalt and each has a concrete patio with a gravel frame, a picnic table and fire ring. Utilities were conveniently located on the sites and in good working order. There are three dump stations on the property and well as several covered large-group pavilions. Our site needed only a little assistance from us to be level. There are several sites which are "Y" shaped for those who have friends/family in separate rigs to share a spot. All sites were spacious, offering ample privacy. Restroom/Showers were clean, thanks to the diligence of the Park Hosts. We were able to connect to satellite and had great coverage on both Verizon and AT&T. We only had one night there, but wish we could have spent more time in this lovely park. We camped at Maumelle COE in a Fifth Wheel.

Tom Sawyer's Mississippi River Park, West Memphis, Arkansas

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

This park is right on the banks of the MIssissippi River and offers a great view of the river and the activity on the river; barges being pushed along by tugboats. In fact, there are benches all along the river bank for your viewing pleasure. The park itself has three rv circles. Two of those are right on the river and one is a little further back but still within easy walking distance to the river's edge. The sites are either concrete or gravel - and most have a bit of a drainage issue if it is raining as it was when we were there. About 75% of the sites were pull-throughs and two of the loops are tree-shaded; one loop has no trees. Our site was fairly level and the full-hook up utilities were well maintained and in good working order. A very pleasant surprise was a laundry room with 6 washers and 6 dryers - all fairly new and free of charge. The grounds are mowed and very well kept. We were able to connect with our satellite and had both Verizon and AT&T coverage. The Park is very convenient to activities in Memphis., but do yourself a favor and slow the pace long enough to linger at the River's edge to watch the barges and tugboats on this expansive river. We had a very pleasant stay here and would most definitely come back again. We camped at Tom Sawyer's Mississippi River Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Cages Bend COE, Gallatin, Tennessee

Date of Stay: April, 2017 - $13.00
Overall Rating:

You can't go wrong with Cages Bend COE RV Park. It is obvious that the engineers had an eye for detail and kept the "user' in mind when they designed this park. Almost every site has at least one line of sight to the Old Hickory Lake, even those pads not directly on the lake. Each site has a spacious, gavel patio, equipped with a fire pit and picnic table. Roads were asphalt and easy to drive and sites were either concrete or small gravel. Our site was level without any assistance from us and that always makes me smile. This is a water and 30/50 amp park, with a dump station. The grounds and utilities were well maintained. There is a good size playground for the kids and a boat ramp just outside of the camping loop. The park is quiet, serene, and convenient to anything you might want to do in Nashville. We connected to our satellite for tv and had both Verizon and AT&T coverage. We would most definitely come back to this park. Well done Corp of Engineers. We camped at Cages Bend COE in a Fifth Wheel.

My Old Kentucky Home State Park, Bardstown, Kentucky

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

This park was not what we had expected from a State Park. The grounds are lovely as a beautiful golf course wraps around 35 sites. What they call a pull-through is ridiculous - nothing more than spreading gravel on both sides of a back-in and asking you to park on the gravel with all of the utilities set up for the back-in site. And they charge you an extra $3 for the "pull-through" sites. We opted to decline our reserved "pull through" and went to a back-in. Those sites are really too short, but we were able to squeeze in between two trees to back up enough to keep our tires on the asphalt and give us a little bit to room at the front of the site. However, the sites are wide enough to park your vehicle to the side. Everyone we talked to had a heck of a time trying to level. We added 5" to one side and our rig was still not level. Utilities (30amp and water) were oddly located about 20' past the rear of the trailer. This is an older park and in our estimation, is ready for some major updating and improvements. There was a nice playground area for the kids and a nice dog park across a well-trafficked street. The Park Staff was friendly, but not on site all of the time. We had to call and then wait for check-in. Connecting to satellite and cell phone coverage is sketchy at best. We camped at My Old Kentucky Home State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Bardstown claimed to be the "Bourbon Capital of the World and the most beautiful small town in America". If you ever wanted to tour a distillery, there are about 10 to choose from. The restored downtown area is quaint any I recommend Mammy's Kitchen if you want southern cooking.

Greenbo Lake State Resort, Greenup, Kentucky

Date of Stay: April, 2017 - $36.00
Overall Rating:

Tucked away in bluegrass country hills, Greenbo Lake State Resort is a beautiful, quiet, sanctuary. The office rests at the boat ramp/boat rental, while the campground is located along a spring-fed creek, with many of the sites right on the edge of the creek. Gravel sites were extra spacious, but not level. We had to use boards to raise up one side of our trailer 5". The hook-ups were all 30 amp and in good working order. However, the location of the water and electric were on the opposite side - that 50' water hose came in might handy. Each site had a fire pit and picnic table and most are well shaded by trees. Other amenities on the property are a miniature golf course, horseshoe pit, basketball goal and slab, playgrounds (2), a Lodge (was not open for the season when we stayed here in April), fishing, hiking trails, boat rentals. I regret to say that we had only one night here, but would certainly stay here again. We camped at Greenbo Lake State Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Greenbrier River Campground, Alderson, West Virginia

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

Whitewater rafters - this is a great park for you! If you canoe or just like to play or fish in the river - this is a great park for you too! Almost all of the sites in this park have a river front/rear view and the river is beautiful and the flow/rapids are music to your ears. Sites are large gravel and many have a generous, fairly new deck that faces the river. All hook-ups (30/50 amp,water, and sewer) are well maintained and in good working order. Common areas in this park offer a playing field, games, playground, and group shelters. If you want to get off the grid, this park is for you as there is almost no connectivity for cell phones, internet, or satellite. The park does offer free cable, but the reception was very poor. All that is great as far as we are concerned. The only problem in this park is tucked between auto traffic (about 100 yards on one side) and a well used railroad (about 100 yards on the other side). Therefore, noise was a bit of an issue for us. For that reason alone, if we find our way back to this area, we would look for another park. We camped at Greenbrier River Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Overall Rating:

Greenville Farm Family Campground is a peaceful, quiet, family-run farm and campground. We used this as our "home-base" while using the Metro to go into Washington DC. For $10 per day, the owner's son walked and fed our dog on the days we were away early to late. The sites in our section were all pull-through, gravel, and full hook-ups and between sites is grass and a picnic table. All roads to the campground are asphalt. There is a camp store, swimming pool, and laundry room; all were still closed as we were here before the season. There is a fishing pond and I walked the asphalt roads to take in views from the farm and enjoy the livestock. We throughly enjoyed our 20 days here and would definitely come again.

Flory's Cottages & Camping, Ronks, Pennsylvania

Date of Stay: April, 2017 - $48.00
Overall Rating:

Flory's Cottages & Camping is a small park right in the middle of Lancaster County. The park host/owner was friendly and helpful and the grounds, plain and simple, are very well maintained. All roads and sites are gravel, with grass between sites. No fire or bar-b-q pits, but there is a wooden picnic table at each site. Sites are approximately 50'x30' and are all back in which means the backs of the trailers almost "kiss". There was just enough room for our 35' trailer and truck. The park is obviously home to a good number of full-timers, but all units were well kept and the grounds were peaceful. We pulled in while it had been raining all day and our site had a bit of a drainage problem on the entry side of our unit. But we were able to use our outdoor mat to keep us out of the mud. All sites had full hook-ups and you have a choice of 30 or 50 amp electric. Restrooms were exceptionally clean. Other amenities are a laundry room, activity room, small playscape for kids, and a pet walk. The park is surrounded by typical Amish farms and homes and this location is convenient to Lancaster and all of the other townships that bump up to that city. We would definitely stay here again.
