Hot Springs National Park KOA, Hot Springs, Arkansas

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $37.00
Overall Rating:      

This is pretty much exactly what you would expect from a KOA. Well-maintained campground with friendly owners. Our site wasn't very level, but maybe we just got in the wrong position. The site was wide and reasonably spacious. Bathrooms are clean and convenient. We spent most of our time out and about, but it's a nice campground. There were a bunch of folks here over the weekend, but most cleared out on Sunday afternoon. Still a decent number of folks, but not as many and not quite as loud. We didn't have any problems with the larger groups, though. We camped at Hot Springs National Park KOA in a Travel Trailer.

AOK Camper Park, Amarillo, Texas

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $27.00
Overall Rating:      

There is no office and we did not see any posted "instructions" or rates. We found this campground online and got all of our information from the web site. The web site indicated that they would accept all discount clubs for a $14 rate, which we were excited about. It also said you could pay cash or check in an envelope on site or by credit at the gas station across the street. Since we didn't have time to go to the ATM, we went across the street to pay and were told the discount was only for Passport America. $27 is not a bad campground price, but when there is no office, no bathrooms (at least not that I saw) and no information of any kind, it's a bit high for us. We were looking for a cheap off and back on the interstate and were willing to have less-than-ideal conditions for a reduced rate. It's not a bad campground, but it's obvious that there is no on-site management. All sites are pull-thus with full hook-ups...always a good thing in the summer in Texas. Our site (#8) was not very level at all...took 3 sets of lynx levelers to level and stabilize our camper. We camped at AOK Camper Park in a Travel Trailer.

The Last Resort, Pagosa Springs, Colorado

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $34.00
Overall Rating:      

You are going to get what you pay for here. It was quite a bit cheaper than most of the places closer to town, but not as nice. That said, it was adequate for a couple nights. There seems to be a good number of permanent/long-term residents. A few sites were a bit cluttered, but others weren't too bad. There is a bathhouse, but it just has one toilet & shower for each gender. Wasn't a problem for us, but I can see the potential for it to get backed up. In the bathhouse there is also one washer and one dryer, with reasonable rates. There is also a small kitchen you can use. When we were there the parents of the owners were running it and they were very friendly and helpful. If you're looking for something that won't break the bank, this isn't a bad option. It's not somewhere I would want to stay long term though. We camped at The Last Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Centennial RV Park and Campground, Montrose, Colorado

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $44.00
Overall Rating:      

We really enjoyed this campground! It is about 10 minutes south of Montrose, but was worth the drive. The sites and roads are wide and very easy to navigate. Sites were level and had lots of grass on either side. Quite a few seasonal residents, but everything was clean and not at all junky. There are some campers & RVs being stored off to the side, but even that was clean and clutter free. Owners were friendly and helpful. Biggest "problems" were laundry and wifi. There are only two washers & dryers and it's a pretty big campground. The couple of times I tried to do laundry, there wasn't anything available. Also, the wifi wasn't the greatest and neither was the cell service (AT&T). Owners are working on upgrading the wifi, so hopefully that will improve soon. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Centennial RV Park and Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Be careful with your awning. We were warned of high winds, so we didn't extend the awning unless we were outside. One afternoon a VERY gusty rain/thunderstorm came through that rattled the entire rig. We saw a couple of folks struggling with their awning...we were very glad ours was closed. Nothing to worry about, just something to be aware of.

Ponderosa Campground, Cody, Wyoming

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

This is a great campground, within walking distance (10-15 minutes) of downtown Cody. There are many different types of sites, so be clear what you are reserving/getting. Some are fabulous pull-through, while others are really just a parking space. Most sites have an average amount of space between them, but we were right up against our neighbor on one side and no extra room anywhere. The site was very level, though, which is always appreciated! Overall, the campground is great, but our site was not the best. The laundry room is large and reasonably priced. Wifi and cell service (AT&T) were good. We camped at Ponderosa Campground in a Travel Trailer.

It is a great location for the Fourth of July weekend - we could walk downtown for the parade and were able to watch the fireworks from the back of the campground. You can also get the trolley tour or rodeo bus from the campground, if desired. The RV Wash was $2/foot and they did a great job!

Fishing Bridge Campground (Concessionaire Operated), Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $54.00
Overall Rating:      

It's pretty crowded and the interior roads aren't in the best of shape. But it's the only true RV campground inside Yellowstone, so we tried not to complain too much. We spent so much time out and about that we really didn't even want to sit outside too much. There was a tiny bit of space that we could fit a couple of chairs, but definitely not much. That said, the sites were fairly level and our camper & truck fit just fine. I see it as paying for the convenience of being in the park with hook-ups. If you're trying to compare it to private campgrounds, you'll be disappointed. If you take it for what it is, it works just fine. We camped at Fishing Bridge Campground (Concessionaire Operated) in a Travel Trailer.

Willow Bay Recreation Area, American Falls, Idaho

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

All sites are level and paved. Most are pull-throughs but there are a few back-in sites. Sites are well-spaced apart. There is a good variety of shorter spaces and some very long spaces. The owner/manager is visible and friendly. We had to make some changes to our reservation and they were very accommodating and understanding. The campground is right on the water at the marina and seems to be a gathering place for semi-locals. Even with a family reunion (or some other large group gathering) that had a bounce house set up, things were not too loud or crazy. The biggest negative is the train that is right behind the property. It doesn't blow the horn though, so it's not too bad. It did not keep me up at night. We would definitely stay here again if in the area. We camped at Willow Bay Recreation Area in a Travel Trailer.

Whispering Elms Campground, Baker, Nevada

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

There aren't many options in Baker. If you want full hook-ups, this is really about it. The campground isn't great, but it will do for a couple days while visiting Great Basin NP. The bartender who checked us in was friendly - we did not meet anyone else while there. Sites were ok...not much shade, but there's not many trees in this part of the world. Bathrooms were satisfactory, but we didn't use the showers. Around here, you take what you can get. Your other options for camping in Baker are in the park with no hookups or literally a parking lot with water and electricity. We camped at Whispering Elms Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This was a great RV park in the middle of nowhere Nevada. We stopped here for a couple of nights before driving to Great Basin National Park. Our spot was perfectly level. Each spot has a little bit of grass next to it. Everything is kept clean. Bathrooms are adequate and laundry was very reasonable priced. We would definitely stay here again if we are in the area.

Mono Vista RV Park, Lee Vining, California

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $38.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed here for five nights while hanging out in the area. The staff was wonderful. Everything was clean and well cared for. Some of the sites were very close together, but others had a bit more room between them. The bathrooms were clean. You did need tokens for the shower, but they were free for campground guests. There was always someone roaming around the sites picking up trash, watering the grass, and making sure everything was OK. We really enjoyed our stay here. We camped at Mono Vista RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Yosemite West Mariposa KOA, Midpines, California

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $67.00
Overall Rating:      

While still nearly an hour from Yosemite Valley, it is one of the closer campgrounds to Yosemite from the El Portal entrance. The campground was great and most of the folks were friendly and easy to work with. The sites are fairly level, but were a bit tricky to get in and out of. I guess that is somewhat to be expected when in the mountains, though. We did not get any AT&T service at the campground. The wifi was just ok and that was only when the campground wasn't completely full. We felt it to be a bit overpriced, but overall it's a good campground.

This was a good stop not too far off I-40. We just camped for one night, but it was exactly what we needed. The sites were fairly close together, but there was at least a little bit of shade - a real treat in this part of the world! This place isn't fancy, but it's not bad for a couple of nights.

Meteor Crater RV Park, Winslow, Arizona

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

This is a great RV park right off I-40. Good for a night if you're just passing through or a few nights if you are visiting Meteor Crater, Winslow or Flagstaff. Sites are easy to get into, level and well-spaced. Only minor negative is there isn't much shade...but, this is the desert and they've planted some trees which is much appreciated! The bathrooms were amazing - individual bathrooms with a sink, toilet and shower - exactly what you would find at home. You get $2 off your admission to Meteor Crater and discounts on gas at the gas station out front. We would definitely camp here again if passing through.

Camping World RV Sales of Chattanooga, Chattanooga, Tennessee

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $23.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed one night. It was an easy stop off the interstate and perfect for just one night. You pay at the store (closes at 7:00), pick your site, and turn in a slip to the campground host. They do not accept reservations, but there seemed to be several sites available when we arrived about 6:00 on a Wednesday night. The sites are reasonably level and the bathrooms were adequate. The regular price for a night is $23 or you can renew your Good Sam membership for $27 and get a free night of camping. We camped at Camping World RV Sales of Chattanooga in a Travel Trailer.
