About Runner in the Night

My husband and I currently own a 2008 Heartland Sundance. I retired in 2012 and my husband retired in 2016. We are now able to take more extended trips and are enjoying our time together and meeting like-minded travelers during our stays at RV parks across the West and Midwest. Because we traveled State and National Parks in tents and campers when we were younger, we now tend to stay in larger commercial parks made for big rigs. Maybe we'll see you at our next stop!

Mountain Home RV Park, Mountain Home, Idaho

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

Incredible service, starting with the nice woman taking the reservation who explained the afterhours check-in, the gentleman who met our vehicle at 9pm in his golf cart to assist us to our site, and ending with another nice lady who took our payment the next morning when the office opened again at 8am. Top notch facility, with wide paved interior roads for easy navigation, extra long level cement pads allowed us to stay hooked up for early departure the next morning; alternating site direction placed utilities together behind a privacy fence so you didn't have to sit by a sewer connection when outside; large, lush grassy sites between pads; good wifi so I didn't need to use my hotspot, but Verizon signal was good if I had to; cable TV had over 100 channels (but some channels were audio only). Picnic table was on a patio. Plenty of room for slide outs. Clean and tidy. The pool and spa area looked fantastic. Lots of large shade trees in part of the park, but not all of the park. This very nice park is modern and spacious. A real gem. I would gladly pass this way again. We camped at Mountain Home RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Wendover KOA, West Wendover, Nevada

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $56.00
Overall Rating:      

West Wendover is high desert and dry as a bone. Water is scarce and grass even more so. I wouldn't call this KOA a destination RV Park, EXCEPT for one week in August each year during the annual Speed Week held on the nearby Bonneville Salt Flats. This is when the park really shines when it fills up with racers who've traveled from far and wide to break 200 mph and share their stories. Yes, the park IS vintage and dusty gravel with no shade, but otherwise tidy, easy to navigate and mostly level. Sites are pull thru with only a very few that are 50amp. It's overpriced compared to many nicer parks. WiFi was average until the late afternoon when the park filled up, then not available. There are many cable channels available, though. This was our third visit here for Speed Week and staff has always been very friendly and accommodating. We camped at Wendover KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Camp Coeur D'Alene, Coeur d'Alene, Idaho

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

We stayed here overnight and they accommodated us when most places were full. This lovely small park is under new ownership and the owners are very helpful. I would seriously advise Big Rigs to avoid this park due to the tight navigation throughout. It's a wonderful park for truck campers, pop-ups and small trailers; tenters will find this place a delight. The sites are terraced up a steep hill in a canyon. Interior roads and sites are gravel. The 30amp back-in sites along the perimeter are neither long enough for the RV and tow rig connected, nor wide enough to place the tow rig aside the RV and still have much outdoor space once the slides are out and the steps are down. The 50amp pull-thru sites are shared two-per-terrace and side-by-side with another RV, but in alternating directions. The existing pool is being repaired and not currently usable. Free wood, free paddleboats and canoes; bathrooms weren't clean but laundry was; Verizon reception is two bars; no wifi, no cable, OTA renders about 11 TV channels; many trees for shade may impact satellite reception. They are completing construction for a store. They were having water troubles during our stay. Because of our size (35' plus truck) we would not camp here again unless we had to. We camped at Camp Coeur D'Alene in a Fifth Wheel.

Fairmont RV Park, Anaconda, Montana

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $41.00
Overall Rating:      

Without a doubt, this is the best RV park in this area and the owners are very kind. Interior roads and sites are all gravel and mostly level but a little tight in the old section. Site numbers 87 and higher are very large back-in 50amp sites. The handful of 50amp pull-thru sites in the older section may be more difficult to navigate for big rigs. Picnic tables are provided in the dry, grassy areas between sites in the older half of park. There's a fueling station in front of the office which sells both gas and diesel. The office sells a variety of beverages, including beer and wine, ice and other sundries. There are 4 OTA TV channels; WiFi is provided but never worked for us in our site (park was mostly full); Verizon reception was only two bars. Utilities can be a bit of a reach. A water park is next door within walking distance and the pathway starts between sites 7 and 8. We would likely stay here again, but would reserve further in advance to see if we could get a larger site. We camped at Fairmont RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Ennis RV Village, Ennis, Montana

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

What a great place. Very easy to navigate, wide interior roads; most sites are pull-thru with very long wide spaces. Friendly efficient service. Clean and modern bathrooms and showers. Grassy sites with picnic tables and garbage cans nearby. Better Wifi than most RV parks, but did slow in the evening; Verizon service was two bars and spotty; 7 OTA TV channels. Views are wide open. Small store offered a few gift items along with ice. Sites are level gravel. If this park had paved interior roads, rather than gravel, it would be a top contender. We camped at Ennis RV Village in a Fifth Wheel.

Yankton / Missouri River KOA, Yankton, South Dakota

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

Very clean park with many amenities. Because of the drought it seemed a little dusty and the grass was mostly dry. A few sites offered cement patios. Very spacious navigating and sites were level, long and wide. We enjoyed watching and were visited by 13-line ground squirrels at our site. It was hot and we enjoyed relaxing in the pool next to the covered pavilion, then bouncing on the "jumping pillow." Off-leash dog park and nice dog walk area. They issue a cable box so we had about 65 channels available to us. There's a small convenience store in the office with the usual camp items and souvenirs. Wifi was good and Verizon was mediocre. We would stay here again. We camped at Yankton / Missouri River KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Absaroka Bay RV Park, Cody, Wyoming

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

Pleasant small park with wide, paved interior roads, gravel pads, lush grassy sites and picnic tables. This busy little no-frills park is right next to the highway but relatively quiet. No store, but they do sell ice. Not within walking distance to local shops or attractions, but a short 5 minute drive away. Easy to negotiate and level; most sites are pull-thru and require RVs to disconnect tow vehicles and park cross the end of the site. Short back-in sites on one end. No off-leash dog facility but leashed dogs welcomed. Clean bathrooms, showers and laundry; bathrooms have just shower curtains for doors. Four OTA TV channels; Verizon had mediocre reception. WiFI was surprisingly good and free. After comparing to other parks in the area during our 3 night stay, we agree we would prefer to stay here again. We camped at Absaroka Bay RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Buffalo KOA , Buffalo, Wyoming

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $57.00
Overall Rating:      

Very nice park and would gladly stay again. Staff nice and efficient and guided us to our site. Easy maneuvering through the park. Dog-friendly with off-leash dog area and doggy bags available if you forgot to bring your own. Interior roads and sites are the tidiest gravel I've seen with wide grassy areas for picnic tables between wide sites. The sites aren't exceptionally long, so we had to disconnect and park across the front of our site. The sites were level. Four deluxe sites have cement pads, outdoor table/chairs, fire pits, BBQ (the 50/30amp sites # 50 and 38 are preferred to the 30amp sites # 33 and 44. They are longer and have more private space.) They even have a private, fenced hot tub site which is absolutely huge. We were directly across from the garbage in site 44 on a hot Sunday but there was no smell. Wifi was good early but slow as the park filled. Verizon service was marginal; about 20 cable channels. The park was grassy, shady and very clean and the store/office had a variety of RV items and sundries available. Love this park! We camped at Buffalo KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Stony Point Rv Park & Campground, Cass Lake, Minnesota

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $42.00
Overall Rating:      

Staff was friendly and efficient. Most of the available FHU pull-through sites were in the shady section of the park where paved interior roads lead to large, grassy "natural" sites. Maneuvering thru park and site was just ok - a tad close to obstacles. The front of our 5th wheel was nearly on the ground to reach level. Sites alternate direction so utilities are shared closely on one side, while picnic areas are shared on the other. Picnic tables and fire rings are provided. Sites are long and wide and it appears common to have large groups sharing one site for weeks at a time. At our site, we had no wifi, no TV and no cell service. As their website shows, the resort offers boat rentals, moorage, boat launch, store, LP gas, boat fuel, restaurant, swimming beach and play ground. Most of the interior sites are privately owned permanent sites but a friendly vibe. Morning garbage pick up; recycling available. The pool/spa is indoor with a per person/per day fee. We didn't check the bath/showers but they were in a nearby block building which could double as a storm shelter. We camped at Stony Point Rv Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Nugget RV Park, St. Regis, Montana

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $42.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a beautiful park in a beautiful area. The office staff were friendly and we were escorted to our site. All interior roads and sites are gravel and not very level, and only a handful of RV sites have grassy areas. The park is built on a hilltop with many terraces, twists and turns above a meadow area. It's a nice, clean park and we've stayed here on more than one occasion. Bring your own wifi and satellite TV unless you plan to golf, fish or hike while you're here. The store is limited but has ice and huckleberry jam! Many activities for kids, and plenty of walking space for dogs. This could be a destination RV park for many but request a spacious site with grass and shade. Our space wasn't long enough and we had to park our pickup across the front of our site, as did our neighbor. We camped at Nugget RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Billings Village RV Park, Billings, Montana

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $50.00
Overall Rating:      

Very nice woman in office helped us secure a site we could easily back into without needing to unhook. All sites are backins and no pull thrus. I wouldn't say this is a big rig friendly site, but it could probably work in a pinch. This was a good spot to stay over night; many sites had permanent residents in trailers. Good wifi and cable. Not much for kids to do or dog walks available. Railroad tracks are nearby and we did hear the train but with A/C on we didn't notice much noise.

North Park Campground, Dickinson, North Dakota

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

Very nice owners were extremely helpful and friendly. The park is over 80 acres and combines permanent and long term sites in most sections with maybe a third of the sites for transient RVs. All interior roads were gravel, sites were level gravel, and easy to maneuver and very long. Small strips of grass and small young trees between level sites were drying up due to their drought, leaving the park dry and dusty. Wifi is available but insufficient bandwidth, so we had to use our own hotspot. Verizon signal was good. About 7 TV channels available via antenna. A dog walking path was available in the shelterbelt to the north. I didn't notice any playground equipment. It was off the highway about a 1/2 mile, quiet and good for an overnight stay. We camped at North Park Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Jamestown Campground, Jamestown, North Dakota

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

This is a beautiful park with spacious sites, lots of grass and mature shade trees. Very park like with extremely friendly owners. Of all the places we stay that advertise wifi, this one actually had very good bandwidth and we didn't have to use our own hotspot. Verizon signal was good. Cable hookup provides 8 or 9 channels. Interior roads and sites are gravel, but very tidy, very level and easy to maneuver. The access to the park is on a dusty gravel frontage road, and that's the only down side we could ascertain. There's some playground equipment for kids. No pool or spa. Looks like it was a KOA at one time. The store stocks only a few items - they do have ice and ice cream. There are several areas for walking dogs. It's next to the highway but we didn't find the associated noise bothersome. This was great for an overnight stay, easy on and off. I would stay here again. We camped at Jamestown Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Flag City RV Resort, Lodi, California

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

As noted in other reviews, our Wi-Fi was virtually non-existent, even in the middle of the day with fewer than 10 other campers in the transient section of the park. The very nice staff told us to come to the office/lounge to use Wi-Fi. Worth noting is the smell coming from the nearby treatment plant and dairy farm which made our two day stay somewhat unpleasant. Okay for an overnight stay in route to somewhere else. We camped at Flag City RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Suncrest RV Resort, Moses Lake, Washington

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $49.00
Overall Rating:      

Weekday $45 / weekend $49 for full hookups + Tax. Best WiFi we've ever had at a campsite. No cable but able to get a handful of channels. Good Verizon cell service. Easy access from I-90 (exit 174). Signage for registration parking was confusing upon entry to the park, but easy to maneuver once within the park on the upper level. Paved, level sites with wide grassy areas separating sites. Very quiet in the upper lot (site 76); freeway traffic could be heard in the lower lot, which has more shade and closer walk to pools. When the lower lot is full it would be very difficult to maneuver for larger rigs. The beautiful pools were quite cold and weren't being used. The very large spa was tepid, full of rambunctious young children, and getting quite murky by the time we left. If you're only coming here to have a long, quiet soak in the spa you'll be disappointed. However, if you're bringing your children for a water-soaked weekend of fun, you've found the right place. We camped at Suncrest RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
