Meramec Springs Country Store and RV Park, Saint James, Missouri

Date of Stay: October, 2018 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

First thing to note is our motorhome is 40'. They said we would have no problems getting into our spot; they were wrong. Very right turns, trees with low hanging branches, sites so small that other campers extended into the (already narrow) roadways. We finally got ourselves into the site, but it took a lot of back and forth work. Luckily we didn't leave until a weekday when the place was mostly empty since I had to got through the edges of other sites to get out. The road noise was also more than I anticipated. It wasn't heavily traveled, but it had enough traffic to make it very noticeable in our site. If you have a small unit and don't mind being crammed in like a sardine without enough room to open your awning, this would be fine. For us, it was a bad choice. We already had plans in the area or we would have left. We certainly won't go back. We camped at Meramec Springs Country Store and RV Park in a Motorhome.

Red Bay RV Park, Red Bay, Alabama

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

This is a parking lot with gravel sites and full 50 amp hookups. It is really just an overflow for the Tiffin Service Center in town, but it is clean, easy to get in and out, and the utilities were well positioned and worked perfectly. All sites are back in, but roomy. It is a bit out of town and very quiet. It was hard to rate. For what it advertises itself - a parking lot - it is very nice. Then again, it is a parking lot. We camped at Red Bay RV Park in a Motorhome.

This place actually has bigger sites than the Tiffin Service Center, so if you are waiting for non-warranty work you might be better off doing it here. On,y warranty work qualifies you for a free site at the Tiffin campground.

Big Woods Lake Campground, Cedar Falls, Iowa

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

This is a lovely county park situated on a small lake, just off Hwy 218 north of Cedar Falls. The sites are roomy with hard packed gravel for the full hook up sites. There are also grassy sites for tents or other units not using hookups. I would give it a solid 9 but the highway noise and the frequent trains right at the edge of the campground make it a less pleasant experience. It is still worth the low cost for full hookup 30\50 amp sites if you don't wake up easily. The campground is pretty new so the trees are very small and provide no shade. Lots of grass though. We were here during a period of prolonged rain, and the mosquitoes ate us alive. Bring repellent if you come during wet periods. Make sure your GPS routes you to the campground, not Big Woods Lake Park. The park is on the other side of the lake, and it is tedious to get to the campground from there. Take the Lone Tree Road exit off Hwy 218 and follow the signs. We camped at Big Woods Lake Campground in a Motorhome.

Heritage Acres RV Park, Tuscumbia, Alabama

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $33.00
Overall Rating:

This is a basic campground with most sites seemingly occupied by long term residents. It is clean, neat, and handy to the highway. The sites are large with small patches of grass next to the gravel sites. No trees, but the electric, water, and sewer worked well. The hookups in our pull thru site were toward the back so we needed an extra water hose. Amazingly quiet. We camped at Heritage Acres RV Park in a Motorhome.

Gorgeous site with lots of room. Very quiet. Very poor cell service, though we got a bar or two of 3G with our cell booster. The provided WiFi was pretty poor, but that was the only thing wrong. We camped at Lake Mead Recreational Area - Willow Beach in a Motorhome.

Mountain View RV Park, Huachuca City, Arizona

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

This is a very nice place for long term residents, but not nearly as nice for short term. The short timers are out in sites back to back in an area that used to be used for park models (now removed). This means the utilities are in an odd spot. The first site they tried to put us in had the sewer line in the middle of the site, and the manager calmly said we could just climb under the trailer to connect. We said absolutely not, and she finally put us "in the only available site". That site did not have room to park the truck which had to go into overflow area due to landscaping. The entire time we were there other sites were available including a pull through. Laundry was very nice, and the place was very quiet though. We camped at Mountain View RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Golden Shores RV Park, Topock, Arizona

Date of Stay: November, 2017 - $21.00
Overall Rating:

This is an older park that is showing its age. The facilities are barely average, but the people are very welcoming and nice. Everything is spotless too. There is a small clubhouse and a nice laundry (2 washers, 2 dryers). Their WiFi wasn't very good in our site, but Verizon gave me good data service. The price shown is the weekly discounted rate, $150 a week. We camped at Golden Shores RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Slip Bluff Campground, Davis City, Iowa

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $15.00
Overall Rating:

A lovely little park in Iowa close to the Missouri border. Lots of trees, a small fishing lake, ponds, and hiking trails. On a Friday night in mid October there were 3 campers here, though I bet it is more popular in the summer. The sites are long, but there are trees that make getting the right angle in a back in or pull through rather challenging. We managed it though, and we were rewarded with a nice patio area, fire pit, and picnic table. The sites were fairly level. Good Verizon cell service, but no broadcast TV available. We didn't put out the satellite for the one night stay. We camped at Slip Bluff Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Indian Creek COE, Monroe City, Missouri

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $9.00
Overall Rating:

An absolutely gorgeous campground with huge, widely separated sites. Lots of shade, and many of the asphalt pads are find for big rigs when toad is unhitched. The sites are very unlevel though, most sloping down significantly from the road. We were there in October and it was very quiet, but I would imagine it is very busy in the summer. Only a very few sites have a water view, and the lake it a good walk from the campground. All the sites have electric, and a few have sewer and water also. We had an electric only sites, but the dump station was close and convenient. We camped at Indian Creek COE in a Travel Trailer.

Pulltite Campground, Salem, Missouri

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $9.00
Overall Rating:

This is a lovely rustic campground in a beautiful area along the Current River. There are flush toilets and sort of warm showers though we didn't use them. The sites are grass with occasional patches of sand, and many have nice shade. Surprisingly for a rustic, NPS campground, many of the sites are big enough for large trailers and 5th wheels. A few sites would be ok for motorhomes too. Be aware of trees as you get into your site though. The campsites generally require a lot of leveling, but the end result is worth it. Note the campground fills completely during the summer boating season, and it fills weekends even in the spring and fall so reservations should be used if you really want to stay here. We like to spend a week here each fall. No cell service, no satellite view since you are in a deep river valley. We camped at Pulltite Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Lava Hot Springs KOA, Lava Hot Springs, Idaho

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

Campground itself isn't too bad. Many sites were shady, they had at least a small patch of grass, and the sites were level. However I had to mark it down due to the frequent train noise from the edge of the campground. It is on a major cross country route, and the noise is incredibly loud at night. We won't be back. We camped at Lava Hot Springs KOA in a Travel Trailer.

There are lots of historic areas nearby due to the Oregon trail. We found that more interesting than the Hot Springs. Geysers, springs, and ghost towns were fun to explore.

Gros Ventre Campground (Concessionaire Operated), Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $15.00
Overall Rating:

This is a rustic campground. If you want full hookups, level,concrete pads, and showers you won't like it. We prefer lots of space, good views, and we don't mind gravel so we really like it. The electric sites are much more expensive than the dry camping sites, so we rely on solar with a bit of backup from the generator on rainy days. There are shady spots, but with the solar we prefer the sunny ones, and there are many. This campground does occasionally fill up, but not often. We have stayed her multiple times for a week at a time, and we still keep coming back. The staff is sometimes gruff, but they are helpful. The site we had this time was particularly large, a nice bonus. We camped at Gros Ventre Campground (Concessionaire Operated) in a Travel Trailer.

Silver Creek Campground USFS, Garden Valley, Idaho

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $8.00
Overall Rating:

A lovely campground a long way away from everything. The road in is gravel for the last 15 miles and somewhat narrow. Be careful around corners in anything over 25', but you can get bigger units in if you take your time. The sites are nicely maintained Forest Service ones with level asphalt pads and gravel picnic and tent site spots. Lots of trees, and a lovely creek running through the campground. There is an associated rustic resort, Silver Creek Plunge, with a natural hot spring pool ($10 per adult) and cabins. They maintain a small convenience store also. Verizon had voice and text service at the convenience store due to their booster, but no data service. We camped at Silver Creek Campground USFS in a Travel Trailer.

Yosemite Pines RV Resort & Family Lodging, Groveland, California

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

Relatively close to Yosemite and the historic gold country. We stayed her for a rally, and the owners had promised to put us all in one loop. Nope, didn't do that but at least we were all in the same upper campground (they have a lower one also). Laundry was good with relatively inexpensive washers and dryers. The dryer actually got my clothes dry! Many sites are shady and we weren't able to get satellite the entire time. That wouldn't have been so bad if the promised cable was working, but it hadn't been taken out by a lightning storm. They use a so-so Tengo internet which randomly would drop out then come back. Again this wouldn't have been so bad but there was no Verizon data service in the campground. This might sound like a poor review, but this is actually the best you can get in the area. They know they have a good thing going with almost full campground most of the time since it is a full hookup not far from Yosemite. The roads were fine for our truck/trailer combo, but some Class As had to do careful maneuvering. We camped at Yosemite Pines RV Resort & Family Lodging in a Travel Trailer.
