Kansas City West / Lawrence KOA , Lawrence, Kansas

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $52.00
Overall Rating:

Easy in with workamper guide. Lots of big trees but mostly well trimmed. We did have one branch hanging over the retracted satellite but we were only here for one night so we didn't worry about it. They put us in an end pull-thru because of our overall length and we just fit. Serving Ashby's delicious hand-scooped ice cream in the office! We camped at Kansas City West / Lawrence KOA in a Motorhome.

Sundermeier RV Park, Saint Charles, Missouri

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $53.00
Overall Rating:

Easy to get to pull thru. A bit confusing where to park to register so we stayed on main entrance road and that was perfect because we were in the first row & in a perfect orientation to pull right down the row. Friendly staff. Quick 1-night stop on our way West so didn't explore at all. Power was consistent, especially since it was almost 100F and we ended up running all 3 roof units after driving all day in the heat! We camped at Sundermeier RV Park in a Motorhome.

Hollywood Casino Hotel & RV Resort, Joliet, Illinois

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $38.00
Overall Rating:

Easy in, easy out. Big rig capable. No sewer but perfect for a one-night stop. They give you a small discount on food in the casino restaurants (how else will they get non-gamblers in there otherwise?). Our dinner at 99 Hops was excellent and so was our server. Buffet breakfast was lukewarm but was included in the campsite rate. We camped at Hollywood Casino Hotel & RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Haas Lake Park RV Campground, New Hudson, Michigan

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $26.00
Overall Rating:

We spent 3-1/2 months here at a seasonal, monthly rate. Electric is additional. This is a lovely gem just outside major city limits. It's 2 miles of dirt road from the paved main road entrance so be prepared for lots of dusty cars! There are 4 lakes and they limit their seasonal guests. There are probably 40% of the site's that are yearly rentals and it's very heavy on locals who just come out to enjoy the lakes on the weekends. Our site had 3 huge shade trees which kept us cool during the hot summer but we were unable to get a satellite signal so we put our Direct on vacation hold. We were able to pick up limited local channels with our antenna. All the staff was friendly and helpful. Lots of planned family activities on the weekends. Grounds are immaculate. We are originally from this area so we spent a lot of time visiting family & friends but there's lots of nice attractions nearby. We camped at Haas Lake Park RV Campground in a Motorhome.

Sunny Brook RV Resort, South Haven, Michigan

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $66.00
Overall Rating:

This is one of the prettiest campgrounds we have stayed in. We stayed here 2 years ago and they have expanded it and the new sites are larger and even nicer with more green space & landscaping in between them. It is definitely a luxury campground and they sell lots. The owners do a lot of upscale landscaping as well. There are lots of activities and everything is immaculate and well maintained. Staff is very friendly and helpful. We camped at Sunny Brook RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Lebanon / Cincinnati NE KOA, Lebanon, Ohio

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $57.00
Overall Rating:

Entering the campground in a big rig with a tow was a bit unclear so we needed a guide and a long loop around the campground to get into our site, but it was easily accomplished with wide, manageable turns. Our pull-thru was long and utilities easily accessible. Staff was very friendly & helpful. We camped at Lebanon / Cincinnati NE KOA in a Motorhome.

Cummins Ferry Campground & Marina, Salvisa, Kentucky

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

DISCLAIMER- This is geared toward BIG rig owners! It's a long narrow road into a lovely campground on the banks of the Kentucky River. Even though the owners have widened the roads by 4' and the sites by 3' and just re-surfaced the sites, the turns are still tight for 45' motorhomes with tows. Our site was long enough to not disconnect the tow but we dropped the car at the office because they had so much rain the grass in between pads was saturated. Our rear wheels and tow wheels on driver's side still got very muddy making the turn in & out. We needed extra sewer hose & extra hose to reach water. As long as you are well aware & well prepared, this is a lovely campground. We camped at Cummins Ferry Campground & Marina in a Motorhome.

Holiday Travel Park of Chattanooga, Rossville, Georgia

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $48.00
Overall Rating:

I called them for directions because their location was unclear. The campground is actually just south of the Tennessee/GA border in GA so when I gave them our name, they remembered our reservation and reminded me to call them when we got to Exit 1 on the freeway so they could have someone meet us at the entrance. We're 45' plus a tow and they wanted to guide us in " not the usual way to make it easier for us" and they sure did! They put us in a long pull-thru directly across from the office using the " out" drive of the campground to get into it..... smooth as silk! Very helpful staff and very nice campground. Nice big covered picnic area that would be great for groups too. We camped at Holiday Travel Park of Chattanooga in a Motorhome.

Two Rivers Campground, Nashville, Tennessee

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $58.00
Overall Rating:

Little confusing coming in I-40 from the West with the freeway system but at least you pass the campground from the freeway and can see where you're going to end up! We got a call from them about 3:00 pm confirming we'd be arriving before the office closed at 5 pm or else they'd explain their night arrival instructions. Check-in was smooth & thorough, directions to campsite clear. Campsite access more than adequate with good access to back in. Very helpful friendly & staff. We camped at Two Rivers Campground in a Motorhome.

Little Rock North / Jct. I-40 KOA, North Little Rock, Arkansas

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $55.00
Overall Rating:

A little far from I-40 for a one night stop but a nice campground. Easy in & out for the pull-thru they put us in. New gal at front desk was confused about length of site w/our tow but our guide said we'd be fine not unhooking and we were. We camped at Little Rock North / Jct. I-40 KOA in a Motorhome.

Checotah / Lake Eufaula West KOA, Checotah, Oklahoma

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $55.00
Overall Rating:

It's a nice campground but I think a bit pricey for the location. It's right on top of I-40 with lots of freeway noise. We were in a premium campsite with " satellite" access & we were surrounded by trees so, of course, no satellite access but the patio and amenities were lovely. It's a short walk down a bumpy trail to the lake which looks like it's very high and very, very muddy from spring rains. Not attractive right now at all. We camped at Checotah / Lake Eufaula West KOA in a Motorhome.

Elk City / Clinton KOA, Canute, Oklahoma

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $41.00
Overall Rating:

Lovely campground with mature but trimmed trees, grass under the picnic tables at each site and cute playground. Friendly check-in with excellent directions to site and offer to guide if needed. Menu for limited food (pizza, wings, sandwiches, salad& some easy breakfast items). One of the better KOA's we've stayed at. Right off I-40 but no freeway noise ( although wind was so noisy maybe that masked it the night we were there!) We camped at Elk City / Clinton KOA in a Motorhome.

Very pleasant at check-in, wide roads and good written directions to campsite. Level site with rigs parked in opposite directions so a bit close together but neatly landscaped.

Alpen Rose RV Park, Durango, Colorado

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $56.00
Overall Rating:

It's a lovely park in a quiet, lovely location but I think a bit overpriced for early May. We were greeted warmly, our packet ready upon arrival and the Camp Host guided us expertly into a site that just barely fit our 45' plus our dolly. The Durango & Silverton Steam locomotive passes by the campground each day with a cheerful whistle as they steam by. They offer a discount for their breakfast but we didn't partake. We camped at Alpen Rose RV Park in a Motorhome.

Don't miss taking the train from Durango to Silverton. If you can afford it, do the observation car if you go in the summer. We were lucky that we had a warm early spring day. It climbs from 6500' to 9500' so there's a significant elevation/temperature difference....be prepared!

This is a return visit for us and they have added a new row of very, very long pull-thrus to the campground. Very easy in and out. We were delayed arriving by a day due to coach repairs and all it took was a phone call to change our reservation. They are very easy to work with. We camped at USA RV Park in a Motorhome.
