Crow Creek FamCamp (Military FamCamp), F. E. Warren AFB, Wyoming

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

This is a fine park. Our only complaint is the grass needed cutting really bad. Our site was comfortable with plenty of room between other RV's and antelope hanging around eating (which was a real nice surprise). The park sits in a bowl and there are train tracks atop one side of a burm. Even though the train is very close, it is not loud or disturbing at all. Wifi was ok, Verizon signal was ok and utilities were fine. We were supposed to stay only 2 nights but I got tonsillitis and they were very nice to work with us so we could stay longer for me to recover. We would go back. We camped at Crow Creek FamCamp (Military FamCamp) in a Fifth Wheel.

Riverview RV Park & Campground, Loveland, Colorado

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $27.00
Overall Rating:

The location of this park was great for visiting Estes Park and the Rocky Mountain National Park. Hwy 34 between Loveland and Estes Park has been closed for several years and just re-opened about a month ago and the drive between the RV park and Estes Park is quite beautiful. The park was dry and dusty and appeared unkempt. However, it really wasn't unkempt - just had that look because of weeds, drying out yards, etc. The cottonwood trees were 'shedding' and the ground was not only covered with dry dust but also white cotton. It often looked like it was snowing. Someone took us to our site and directed my husband into the back-in site we had (42). He did an excellent job. Utilities were fine and WiFi worked okay. We would go back but I really hope they get some rain. We camped at Riverview RV Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Lamar Sportsman's RV Center and Horse Motel, Lamar, Colorado

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

At the time of this review the rating is 6.7. How this park has a 6.7 is beyond me. As we drove up the office door was locked and there are notes on the door about the rates and how to pay. Just go pick a spot. This park is gravel, sand and some grass. The sites are extremely short (pull through). Our 39' 5th wheel barely fit. We had to park the truck away, to the side, of the RV. There was dog poop everywhere, grass (what there was of it) needed mowing. Because it had been so hot and dry the gravel roads and sites were horribly dusty. There is a pool but there was no water in it. It was 100 degrees and winds blowing at 30 mph. For $42 it would have been nice to take a dip in the pool. The park is void of all hospitality, welcome or eye pleasing gardening or amenities. I can't think of a single redeeming factor. The price is obscene for what you get. I would not recommend this park and we will not go back. We camped at Lamar Sportsman's RV Center and Horse Motel in a Fifth Wheel.

Gunsmoke RV Park, Dodge City, Kansas

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

The sites are long and roomy. Plenty of room between sites and no problem with the length accommodating a 40' 5th wheel and a long bed dually without hanging over on the road. Wifi was good (not secure), utilities were fine and easy to reach. In fact, each site had 2 sewer hookups to choose from in case you parked forward in the site or toward the back of the site. Our only 2 complaints were the gravel and we think it is a little overpriced. The roads and the sites were gravel with grass in between. The gravel is large stone - ankle twisters. Really didn't like that stone..... We would go back. It's a nice, neat, clean park. We camped at Gunsmoke RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

McConnell AFB Famcamp (Military FamCamp), McConnell AFB, Kansas

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $18.00
Overall Rating:

Our check in process was a circle jerk. I don't want to take away from the rating of the park, but I have to mention our check in process. We went to the park before we went to Air Capital Inn because we missed it (Air Capital Inn) while driving in. I called them once we reached the park because there is no host or office. Rather than tell us where to park and go to Air Capital after we set up, they told us we had to pull the rig back through the base to check in. And, I would mention, the parking lot at the Air Capital Inn is NOT big enough for a big rig. Then they wanted the vaccination records for our indoor cat. Those records were under the bed and I needed to get the slide out to get the records. He actually hesitated to allow us to go set up and bring the records back to him. As it was, he gave me 30 minutes to get back to him. As for the park....it is very nice and small. There are 10 spaces and all pull throughs set at a good angle and utilities were convenient. They have 2 tornado shelters on either end of the park, a pretty little pond for catch and release, 2 pavilions for gatherings, and a very large park-like setting on the other side of the park with a walking/running track. There is plenty of room between each site. There is no wifi, but Verizon had a good signal for hotspot. It is also open for good satellite dish reception. My only complaint about the park is that, by the time we left after 7 days, the grass was close to knee high. That surprised me - especially for an AFB. I really have no complaints about the park - just the check in fiasco. We camped at McConnell AFB Famcamp (Military FamCamp) in a Fifth Wheel.

Quapaw Casino, Miami, Oklahoma

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $1.00
Overall Rating:

Not bad! Not bad at all! In fact, for free, it was great. This is not a park but 8 RV sites on the back side of small casino. There is farm land surrounding the area - very quiet and peaceful. The first 3 days is FREE and $10 after that. There is 30/50 amp and water - no sewer. The sites are very long - room enough for any size RV. The casino is just a short way out of town, about 5 miles; and surprisingly, Miami OK is just large enough to have just about anything you might need. There is a train track very close by that has about 5 or 6 trains go by a day. We would come back here again as a stop over. We camped at Quapaw Casino in a Fifth Wheel.

Branson KOA, Branson, Missouri

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $42.00
Overall Rating:

This KOA was in a very good location - not far from beautiful Table Rock Lake and not far from 'the strip'. We don't stay at KOA's typically because we feel they are over priced and this is no exception. However, we attended a Heartland Rally and had no choice. I have 3 complaints - 1. the sites are so close together I couldn't breath; 2. It was 92 degrees and the pool was covered (not opened?) ; 3. KOA's are over priced. Otherwise the park was clean, the staff were very nice, and the meeting room and facilities were fine. Utilities worked fine and the wifi was okay. The sites were level and not nearly long enough but, because the roads were wide, parking was okay even though your truck stuck out in the road. A side note: They had golf carts for rent to the tune of $55 per day! EGads! You can rent an economy car for that much! We camped at Branson KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Lake Charles State Park, Powhatan, Arkansas

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $31.00
Overall Rating:

Very nice park. It is divided up in to 3 loops all of which are on the lake. The sites are far apart with plenty of privacy and include a picnic table, hibachi, fire pit, and patio area (gravel). The wifi was good and so were the utilities. The lake is very scenic and the setting is wooded with the underbrush mowed. The roads and sites are easily negotiable and plenty of room to park your 'other' vehicle. This park accommodates big rigs with ease. We would go back without hesitation.

Midway RV Park (Military FamCamp), Mid-South Naval Support Activity, Tennessee

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $21.00
Overall Rating:

This park is laid out like 3 wagon wheels and, as a result, has plenty of room. No crowding at all. It is surrounded on 3 sides by woods allowing for quiet and privacy. Each pad is concrete and wide enough for a small patio and walkway. The roads and circular area in the center of the wagon wheel are all asphalt. The parking for your tow vehicle or toad is great! Again, because of the wagon wheel configuration, you have excessive parking area in front of the RV without being in anybody's way. Each site has full hookup and most have open sky for great satellite reception. There are also sites with shade trees. There is free laundry - nice and clean with a TV, desk, couch, chair, etc. in the room for comfort. That is also where the showers are. My husband said the men's shower wasn't too clean. The park is located just behind the commissary - within walking distance. The Exchange is nearby; it's a nice base. This has been a great RV park to spend the last 12 days and we wouldn't hesitate to come back. We camped at Midway RV Park (Military FamCamp) in a Fifth Wheel.

Ameristar Vicksburg RV Park, Vicksburg, Mississippi

Date of Stay: April, 2018 - $32.00
Overall Rating:

I'm really not sure why the ratings for this park are 7.2. We were scheduled for 4 days and when we first drove in we decided we were leaving in 2 days, which is the minimum we stay somewhere. This could be a nice park but it needs a major clean up and then continuous upkeep. The sites are closer together than we like them, but not awning touching next door neighbor. However, the concrete pad you park on is just barely wider than the tires on your rig. The sites are all pull throughs but the concrete pads are not flared out at the entrance or exit of the site so the grass/mud at the sides of the pad at entry and exit are bad - very bad. The pads are almost perpendicular to the road instead of at an angle. They angle some, but not near enough. The roads are not very wide and since the sites are very short, vehicles are sticking out on to the road making maneuverability tough. Also, the grass/dirt between our site and our neighbor was full of broken glass and bottle tops, etc. The grass needed mowing. Some of the rigs had been there for awhile as they had 'stuff' sitting around the trailer and some trailers were rather unsightly. I will say the woman at the office was very friendly and Vicksburg is a nice town. We camped at Ameristar Vicksburg RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Vicksburg is a very pretty town with so much Civil War history. We enjoyed going through the Military Park seeing the monuments and learning some of the history of the battle that took place in Vicksburg.

River View RV Park & Resort, Vidalia, Louisiana

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

Very, very nice park! It is eye pleasing, comfortable and quiet. There is plenty of room between the sites and the grounds are kept up beautifully. Each site has a large concrete pad and long enough for big rigs and their tow (towed) vehicle. All sites are full hook up. Between the first row (closest to the Mississippi River) of RV's and the river there is about 300 to 500 feet of grassy lawn then a concrete walkway along the river's edge. The park is almost entirely pull throughs with only about 4 back in sites. Utilities worked fine. One morning the water pressure was very low. I called the office and they said the town was flushing the water system. Within a 1/2 hour the pressure was back to normal. The wifi was slow due to bandwidth and the roads were gravel. Those 2 things are our only complaints and the only reason this park didn't get a 10. We would highly recommend this park and would come back anytime. We camped at River View RV Park & Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Natchez (across the river) is a lovely town with so much history and great antebellum homes to see. There are lots of places to eat and plenty to see. Drive the Natchez Trace for a little while and you can feel like you've transported to the past.

Shields RV Park (Military FamCamp), Naval Construction Battalion Center, Mississippi

Date of Stay: March, 2018 - $15.00
Overall Rating:

We have been here for 45 days and it has been a wonderful stay. The park is great. It is clean, roomy side to side and front to back and each site has its own grassy area. The 'yards' are meticulously maintained as is the whole park. The sites are concrete pads and the roads are asphalt. Nice, wide roads and deep sites. Wifi is good. The speed is good and we didn't have any problems with it. The Verizon cell signal is strong and, because there are no trees, our satellite dish zoomed right in. The staff at the office are great. The park (base) is only about 6 blocks from the beautiful Gulfport beaches and there are a lot of restaurants and just about anything else you might need. Now here's the bad news. Trains! Each day/night there are about 3 to 5 trains going through town and they blow their horns as if they are going through a school yard. There is a little traffic noise from the road to north side, but it isn't too bad unless there are emergency vehicles. And, there are emergency vehicles in this area often. All in all, we would stay here again and again. We camped at Shields RV Park (Military FamCamp) in a Fifth Wheel.

Blue Angel Naval Recreation Area (Military FamCamp), Pensacola, Florida

Date of Stay: January, 2018 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

The Battleship Row side of Blue Angel Naval Recreation Area is a wonderful RV park. We would stay there over and over again. We were there 3 months from December to March. The sites are far enough apart that you have plenty of elbow room - don't feel crowded at all. Each site is a concrete pad and very level. All roads are paved and in excellent condition. The grassy areas are kept up and I never saw any trash around. Even though there is a 90 day limit, none of the sites look like people have taken up homesteading. Its a great place for daily walks and bike riding. There is a paintball place behind the park and also a frisby golf course. All utilities worked perfectly. The host was really friendly and helpful and the location on Perdido Beach is very scenic. Our only complaints were there is no wifi - none at all. The location is out of the way. It's about 10 to 15 miles from the most popular things like Walmart, restaurants, etc. The 2 mile road (Bronson Rd) off of Hwy 98 is rough going and after awhile it gets on your nerves. There is no clubhouse for pot lucks or get-togethers. Now, if wasn't for those 4 things, this park would be perfect! We camped at Blue Angel Naval Recreation Area (Military FamCamp) in a Fifth Wheel.

Outstanding! Clean, neat and plenty of room between each site. Free laundry and great facilities. Each site has a concrete pad, patio, fire pit, picnic table and a well kept lawn. The utilities are in a little fenced area surrounded by bushes so they are not unsightly. Whoever designed this RV park was an RVer. It is set up with plenty of room to maneuver, wide roads, large sites. I have nothing bad to say at all. We would go back again and again.

Atlanta South RV Resort , Mcdonough, Georgia

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

We didn't like this park at all. It is so incredibly tight and uncomfortable. The topography of the park is a gradual uphill and therefore each site is a step up from each other and they chose to make that step up using concrete curbs. So, each site is about 10 to 12 feet wide and on each side of it is a concrete curb with a drop off as much at 2 feet. The grass yard beyond the curb is at a downhill slant not suitable for picnic table or chairs and even if the decline wasn't severe, the width is only about 3 feet. The sites are so short that our 40' 5th wheel filled it up and we had to park perpendicular to the RV with part of our dually fender in the road - as did everyone else. The roads are already very skinny, but with the trucks parked as they had to be it was very uncomfortable. We were really worried about getting out because of the curbs, trucks and the RV across from us. We made it okay only because when we were leaving 2 trucks were gone which left just enough room for my husband to go back and forth with the RV so he could swing wide....We will not be back. We camped at Atlanta South RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
