Red Trail Campground, Medora, North Dakota

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $35.00
Overall Rating:      

The highlight of this campground is the fact that you can walk into Madora and enjoy restaurants, museums, gift shops, and much more. Driving into town you have immediate access to Roosevelt park. In previous reviews we were somewhat hesitant about coming and staying at red trail. Having been to some state parks recently where new bathrooms have been put in with even walk in showers we were a bit spoiled. I marked the showers and bathroom as clean but it would be nice to have them upgraded. Overall the campground just does not have the appearance of being kept up but we were enlightened by some of the stack of upgrades that had been done in the past year that would not be visible to a guest. We had a back inside for our travel trailer that included water and electric. We were disappointed in that it was not level but it was explained to us that some of the sites were paved in the winter and the cold took its toll. We had signed up for full hook ups but the site that was available that included sewer was not in an acceptable location. The Wi-Fi is easily accessible during the day but in the evenings is in overload. For an additional charge you can get cable connectivity which we did not choose. The sites in general were tight and not really designed for slide outs and awnings when the campground was built many years ago. The town does not have a large grocery store so the campground does have some basic supplies and there is another store to in town that does likewise. It appears that the laundry room has fairly up-to-date equipment at reasonable cost as the washing machine's hold extra large loads. During our three night stay at the campground was nice and quiet at night and even in early morning hours. There is a train track very close but the trains do not blow their horns or whistles so they are not noisy or inconvenient for sleeping. We enjoyed a couple of the local restaurants. And especially enjoyed going to the Medora musical which everyone recommends. We camped at Red Trail Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Fort Abraham Lincoln State Park, Mandan, North Dakota

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $24.00
Overall Rating:      

Very comfortable location/park. the site was just about level And it was very spacious. In hooking up it's apparent that you very much need a long long hose or a long long electric line. The connections are spaced throughout but often lock a long distance from your actual RV plug in. What is so nice about this park is its location. The views are magnificent both at the campground site and up on the hill where the block houses are. The visitor center is most informative and the commissary location has good coffee and at every location the staff is the most friendly and helpful. We did not take the tours offered but did walk a variety of trails as well as biking in the area. If you are in good shape you can bike into Mandan or there is a trolley that comes into the park from Mandan and as a tourist attraction. There is Wi-Fi on site at the visitor center and at the commissary both of which are open 9 to 5. Because we had additional computer things that we needed to do we went in to the Mandan library which is conveniently located on main street. When we looked for a place to eat away from the campsite there was only a couple of places open in town on Sunday. We ended up at the local diner which was sufficient. The town is 7 miles away from the campground and that is where you will locate a supermarket as well. I understand there's a Walmart in the area but we ended up being in Bismarck and did our additional shopping there. We did not attempt to get over air TV connectivity so we do not know if it's available. The dumpsite it is conveniently located and easy to pull in and out of. Most of the sites are pull through and almost all have electricity There is a nice walk along the river within the campground. The park is kept very clean as well as the restrooms and showers. We camped at Fort Abraham Lincoln State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Lake Vermillion Recreation Area, Canistota, South Dakota

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

A very family friendly campgrounds. We arrived and our space was not yet available as South Dakota parks have checkout time at 4 PM. So we headed down by the swimming area, we could pull the trailer in and have our lunch. It was apparent that many people were enjoying swimming, fishing, and other outdoor activities. The park will loan equipment for various games and the boat launch rents out kayaks canoes and paddleboats.

Our site for our travel trailer was spacious and we were able to secure two sites so that our son and his family could set up their tent right next to us. The one concern we had throughout was that the vault toilet locations let out a terrible odor, and could affect us in various times depending which way the wind was blowing. The restroom was basically clean though a little upgrading wouldn't hurt.

We camped in the west campground so that we would be comfortably near the beach for our granddaughters. Each site had picnic table and fire pit and electric hook up. The dump station and water fill station are easily located on your way in or out. There was no Wi-Fi on site, nor did we try over the air television connectivity to know its availability.

Many lovely hiking trails. Wildflowers abound and as to waterfront views. The park is about a half hour outside of Sioux Falls to be able to enjoy the activities available there. There is a grocery store in Hartford and a small efficiency store in the local town. You are definitely out in the country at this site but it is beautifully quiet, allowing for great campfires and night sky pleasure.

The couple who is hosting the campground are totally diligent about keeping it clean. If only some of the campers would be more considerate, especially with cigarette butts and from what I hear water balloons. There are numerous flies at this time a year so if you're going to be here for a long period time, set up your screened in room. We camped at Lake Vermillion Recreation Area in a Travel Trailer.

Farm Island Recreation Area, Pierre, South Dakota

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

As soon as we arrived here at Farm Island we decided we wanted to try to stay longer. The park is clean, spacious, and quite lovely. The sites are mostly level with electric hook ups. Dump station and Waterfill is conveniently located. There are full-service restrooms throughout as well. As for toilets not only within the park but in various aspects of trails. The day use area is easily accessible with a nice playground.

Throughout the waterline there is a beach so that people are in swimming rafting and boating. Large boat launch is down a path again conveniently located from the campground. There is Wi-Fi. We did not try over the airTV reception. No laundry on site but there is a clean, well maintained laundry mat just minutes away. We were able to find some delicious restaurants see tips.

Don't miss seeing the Capital: not only driving by, but walk-through. They have a self-guided tour booklet on entry. There are parks throughout the city and lots of good hiking and biking trails. The heritage museum is also very unique and shouldn't be missed. We camped at Farm Island Recreation Area in a Travel Trailer.

Camp Dakotah, Sisseton, South Dakota

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $24.00
Overall Rating:      

We were fortunate to find this quiet park in Sisseton South Dakota. For us we had room to move to put out our awning and our slide out. They were full hook ups and the site was level. We were concerned though in how the sites are set up; if we had a camper pull in next to us, we would have had to pull in the awning and our outside furniture. The owner was very friendly and helpful and the site comfortable to town. There are laundry facilities and a Rec room used for group functions. There is little shade, but the tree next to us and our awning provided the shade needed. Though there is the laundry on site, we had a fair amount to do and went into town to a laundromat there where we could do all of the laundry in one hour. We camped at Camp Dakotah in a Travel Trailer.

The town has a restaurant or two, Subway, an ace hardware, and a nice size grocery store. The lake communities short distance away were delightful to visit and enjoy the recreation there. We made sure to make a trip to Nicolette tower to view three states from the top. If you do go, be sure to stop in at the interpretive center while there. There is even a golf course across the street from the tower, but I don't know whether it's open to the public.

Schroeder's County Park, Annandale, Minnesota

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

What a find! Speak we arrived in this county park for just a one night stay and wish we had known how unique it was to plan at least a week. The campers were very much campers and were enjoying the out-of-doors at the family atmosphere here. A mixture of tense and RVs and very happy families. The sides could easily hold big rigs and were spacious. They included electric hook up for an additional charge and 10 sites had water all have picnic tablesand fire rings. Because the park is small it makes heading to the beach easy. If you have a boat there is a boat launch on site. With so many people out on the water fishing, tubing, and waterskiing. Many locals come this way so reservations would be needed in advance especially for weekend stays. We would certainly return here if the opportunity arises. We highly recommend this location for families, seniors, and anybody wants a little bit of tranquility. There is a dump station on site as there are no sewer connections at the campsite. We camped at Schroeder's County Park in a Travel Trailer.

Homerville KOA (formerly Wild Wood Lakes), Homerville, Ohio

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

Excellent family campground located on former farm with a variety of trails and ponds. The staff were friendly and helpful. The weekend had live music including Santa for Christmas in July. Interesting pool 3' deep with a ramp access that could fit a wheelchair. The campsites were tight with picnic table and fire ring. The low number sites are near the septic pump which runs 24x7 and takes away from the peaceful location. The seasonal sites are separate from transients and it was interesting that they are parallel to the road with generally spacious front yards.

Chicago Northwest KOA, Union, Illinois

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $49.00
Overall Rating:      

Nice family park. They have provided many things for kids to play in and with along with a clean comfortable pool. We were not here long enough for a weekend activities that may occur in the theater but there is an enclosed area for for that. During the time we were here there was a heavy rain wind storm and the campground is not equipped for the drainage of that water. On the other hand the following morning most of it had gotten absorbed into the ground. This campground is apparently often used as a way station as people travel out of Chicago in their travels. I should also mention that it was very quiet and the campers while we were there seem very respectful of one another regarding noise and their allotted space.

The campground is located right next-door to the Wild West Park, which I am told is great fun for kids and adults alike. We did not go there but went to the Illinois Railroad Museum which was dynamic. It is really more adult oriented during the week but on the weekends apparently looking at their activities kids could be involved as well. The extent of the trains there and the information provided is almost overwhelming. The uniqueness of this museum is that the trains are all still operational and apparently they get different ones and out at different times for the weekend riders. We enjoyed that little town of Union and had a delicious hamburger at Clausson's bar and Grill and then walked around the town.

Skidaway Island State Park, Savannah, Georgia

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

This is our second visit to skidaway State park and as per our previous year ago it is just a beautiful location. Quiet peaceful spacious sites. Our site was more than adequate for a 20 foot trailer and there was also an area at each site where attend could be placed comfortably and large picnic tables are included. Apparently there are some sites with full hook ups but we have never been able to reserve those. The restroom near our site was quite outdated but that was clean. They do have laundry facilities here but we did not take advantage of those on this trip. It was nice to see that they rented bicycles at the park office. we had brought ours and did not need to do a rental. There are some hiking trails and we tried out a portion of one. You are close to Savannah about a 20 minute drive with also a Kroger grocery store just down the street. I did forget to mention they do not have Wi-Fi at the sites but you can get Wi-Fi if you go up near the park office. There is cable available at each site.

Bay Bayou RV Resort, Tampa, Florida

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

Bay Bayou was a convenient RV park for my husband and I and our 20 foot travel trailer. We chose this site because of its location, and because it had a swimming pool. We had our two grandsons with us for nine days and we had chosen a Site almost directly across from the pool for their pleasure. We found the campground very well-maintained with spacious sites and full hook ups. The Wi-Fi was strong though a bit overloaded as anticipated late in the day. Laundry facilities were located in various areas of the park and were reasonably priced, well-maintained and adequate number for no wait. Because we were there late in April many of the residents had already left to head north so we did not get involved with the limited activities offered at that time. It is our understanding that during the winter there are many activities offered and we were told a very friendly resident community. There was cable connectivity included with your rate and a wide variety of channels offered. The park has kayak and canoe launch though no rentals available and areas from which one can fish. A wide variety of county parks, restaurants stores and supermarkets within easy reach. We even found a BMX track that our grandsons could try out. Lots of fun things to do in Tampa and St. Petersburg as well has done Eden and Clearwater. The community building has a library, a stage, large screen TV, pool table lots of games and puzzles, computer station, sewing station, and many tables for community activities. Again we did not participate in any as those offered at this time were not of our interest. The pool was kept clean with lots of tables and loungers and on Wednesday they have a midday hamburger hotdog barbecue. The boys had loads of fun spending hours in the pool With the season coming to an end we did not feel what is likely to be the enthusiasm of winter residence and did in turn become included in the limited activities offered. We camped at Bay Bayou RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

We enjoy biking and so we headed with our grandsons to the river walk in Tampa which was great fun and we all enjoyed it so much. It was a little over 2 miles each way and there were fun places to stop and just enjoy the river. Plus delightful lunch at a waterfront cafe. We enjoyed it so much that we did the same thing in St. Petersburg. Very different Riverwalk and what was really fun was seeing dolphins right up against the edge of the walk unexpectedly.

Travelers World RV Resort, San Antonio, Texas

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

We have never camped at such a friendly park as Travelers World. The welcome we received, with great helpful information, was super. The park is kept very clean with trash receptacles handy, and it is great to be at the park with recycling. The location of the park is ideal. It backs up to the Riverwalk and within 4 miles you could bike or walk into town. There is bus service directly across the street and it runs on a regular schedule and is very cost-effective. We found because we stayed for a month that getting a Senior Pass was most valuable. There is so much to see and do in and around San Antonio that this RV Park location is ideal. We are not usually involved in social activities within an RV park but this one offered some delightful socializing without team involvement. The potlucks once a week, the happy hours and even the bike outings were most welcome and we met some delightful people from all over the country and Canada. . We did not use the showers or restroom so I cannot respond on their cleanliness but in light of how clean the rest of the park was I can imagine they were not spotless. The laundry was clean bright and wash and dry were very reasonably priced at $1.25 each. The pool was clean and heated. Pets are allowed in the park and though we do not have one there certainly were lots of dogs well disciplined in the park. People were very diligent about attending to their dogs and many used the dog enclosure for playtime. Wi-Fi was strong and easy to log into Daily. There was no additional charge for Wi-Fi. cable allowed quite a large variety of stations and reception was good. Once again the staff was very friendly and easily accessible. The most unique thing about this park was the friendliness of everyone that we met. We would highly recommend staying here. Thanks to the managers for such careful yet friendly management. We camped at Travelers World RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

We really loved the views from most everywhere in the park. Each campsite was clean and spacious. Each is equipped with water and electric except for a few tent sites. People brought their boats and there was easy access to putting them in the water. There's a lovely beach we did not take advantage of swimming there. We found it very comfortable, quiet and people were very friendly. We would strongly recommend this location to people but be aware there is no cell reception. You would want to come well-equipped with supplies. We camped at Dog Creek COE in a Travel Trailer.

West Thompson Lake COE, North Grosvenordale, Connecticut

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $15.00
Overall Rating:      

We most enjoy going to COA sites and this one did not disappoint. Each site was equipped with water and electric and a picnic table. The setting for each was so peaceful. we had our 20 foot travel trailer and loved just sitting in our comfy chairs and enjoying watching the leaves sway in the trees, the birds come and go and just the forest setting. There are two hosts on site and they take turns working five days on and five days off. They were both pleasant and helpful when assistance was needed. There is a dump site on the way out.

There is a boat launch site and the water looks so welcoming but apparently the water is hazardous to swim in so swimming is not allowed. Though we did not play, many people were availing themselves of the disc golf. The playground is conveniently located as is fire wood for purchase at the host location. There are many hiking trails and the ones along the water are easy to traverse. A most welcoming campground. We camped at West Thompson Lake COE in a Travel Trailer.

Winter Island Park Campground, Salem, Massachusetts

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

This park is located at Salem Harbor and still houses the Fort Pickering Lighthouse. The views by the marina parking lot and the bluffs by the beach were lovely. The options for RV camping around in varied locations through the park. We camped in a 20 foot travel trailer with our two grandsons, 6 and 8 years old. They placed us in the equivalent of a parking lot field with water and electric connectivity. The location of the park is most convenient to downtown Salem and you can also take the tour trolley ($$) into town and back and get interesting information that tour guides provide. If you are looking for convenience this location is fine. Dump site is at a location about one mile outside of the park. Many RVs were also parked in the parking lot by the Harbor but they were in open sun and also with other cars in the lot. Many tent campers came and went onto grassy sites here and there in the park. The park is open to the public for picnicking, hiking and swimming. We camped at Winter Island Park Campground in a Travel Trailer.
