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.

Very nice campground set in the trees with a creek running at the edge. Lots of long sites, but some are difficult to use due to narrow roads. We will certainly come back. We camped at Boulder Park 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.

Winnemucca I-80 KOA, Winnemucca, Nevada

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

Nice campground right off the highway. Some road noise until nightfall, then not much. It is in a high desert so not many trees or much grass, but there is some of both. Very nice setup for tent campers including a grassy spot for the tent and a camper's sink. The site they first assigned us was full southern sun on a hot day, but they quickly accommodated us when we requested moving to another site. Hookups were well placed. It looks like these folks are rehabbing an older campground and ding a good job at it. We camped at Winnemucca I-80 KOA in a Travel Trailer.

San Francisco North / Petaluma KOA, Petaluma, California

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $65.00
Overall Rating:      

Price is an average of 2 weekday nights $55) and two weekend nights ($75). If you have kids, this is a great place to stay. If you don't have kids this is a great place to stay Sunday through Thursday nights. Even on weekends it is a nice place to stay without kids though noisy. Sites are well spaced for a private campground and it was kept clean. Nice people at the front desk who handled a minor problem efficiently and politely. We would come back when in the area. Note the checkin line was 10 vehicles long on Friday at 6:00; expect some delays. Regarding some previous bad reviews about the activities, the website very clearly states check in and check out times. It also states very clearly the costs for additional people camping and day visitors. Don't complain because you didn't read the rules. We camped at San Francisco North / Petaluma KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Tonto National Forest / Houston Mesa Campground, Payson, Arizona

Date of Stay: March, 2017 - $12.00

I am comparing this to other National Forest sites, not to a RV resort. Spacious, well separated sites with asphalt driveways and interior roads. Absolutely lovely. There was a lot of road noise, but we were near the road though sheltered from view by trees. We camped at Tonto National Forest / Houston Mesa Campground in a Travel Trailer.

I bet this is a crowded spot much of the year, but in early March it was almost vacant. Note the price is high for a FS campsite. But it is run by a concessionaire.

Pima County Fairgrounds, Tucson, Arizona

Date of Stay: March, 2017 - $25.00

Big gravel parking lot but with full hookups. The sites are narrow and back to back. We had trouble parking the pickup in front of the trailer since the site was narrow; there certainly wasn't room in front or back. However it is easy to get to and relatively inexpensive. We camped at Pima County Fairgrounds in a Travel Trailer.

Very clean, big sites. Standard southern New Mexico campground with lots of gravel, but they have a few trees and the spot is very clean. Lordsburg is a dump, so this is your only option for anything decent. We camped at Lordsburg KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Date of Stay: February, 2017 - $18.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed at the Lake Alice campground, the smaller of the two campgrounds. Lovely area but sites were small and roads are narrow. There was a 40' Class A in there, but it must have been interesting! Officially we stayed in a full hookups site, but there was a boil order for the water so we didn't use it. There was no cell service. We camped at Sugarite Canyon State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Holiday RV Park, North Platte, Nebraska

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

This is an older park that is showing its age. It has lots of trees, gravel sites, and is very convenient to I-80. There is traffic noise, but that kind of goes with the convenience. The rate was a special winter rate including tax; no other discounts are given. There was central water but no water to the individual sites this time of year. Electricity and wifi were good. A nice spot for a night, but not a destination place. We camped at Holiday RV Park in a Travel Trailer.
