Island Road RV Park, Columbus, Mississippi

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

Small park with only 8 sites. Easy access into park and inside park as well. All sites are gravel back-ins with full hookups. Owner was out of town so her mother came and checked us in, fast and friendly. Park is clean, lots of trees for shade. Very quiet. We were in Site 6, we had to take the hose connect from Site 8 (per owners instructions) as the last people who stayed here took it with them. The site is plenty long enough for our 37-foot Class A, storing the tow-dolly and parking the car. This site is nice and wide, others are more narrow, no picnic table or fire ring. There is no WiFi and our Verizon signal was okay. There are no bathrooms or laundry on site. We stayed March 14-17, 2018 and paid $25.00 a night with no discounts. Just minutes from downtown Columbus. We camped at Island Road RV Park in a Motorhome.

Pecan Grove RV Park, Lake Village, Arkansas

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

This is our second time staying here. Prior stay was February 2017. It is a large park with close to 100 sites plus cabins to rent. Easy access into park and roads in park are good. Check in was fast and friendly. As the name suggests it is in a pecan grove and you can purchase them in the gift shop. There are a number of permanent residents, most are kept up. The overnight spots are all gravel pull-throughs with full hookups. Park is clean. Sites are about average width. There is laundry and a bathhouse on site as well as a fish cleaning station. Small playground and across the road is a boat ramp and fishing deck. Lots of places to walk the dog and a small fenced in dog run. There are trashcans throughout the park and are checked every day. We were in Site 13, level, 50 amp electric and no issues with hook ups. It was just long enough for our 37-foot Class A and tow-dolly, we had to park our car in an empty site. WiFi was good and our Verizon signal was okay. There is road noise from Hwy 65/82, but it quiets down at night. We stayed March 11-14, 2018. We paid $32.00 with our Good Sam Discount. We camped at Pecan Grove RV Park in a Motorhome.

Texarkana RV Park & Event Center, Texarkana, Texas

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

This is a large gated park with close to 100 sites. Driveway in is nice and wide and roads in the park are easy to navigate. Check in was fast and friendly. It is all gravel with a small pond in the center. One section seems to be all permanent residents but well kept up. There is an event center. The laundry and bathrooms were clean. There is a small - and I mean small fenced dog park, but the gate is broken. We were in Site A-6 and is was very narrow - if there had been someone next to us our awning would have been touching them. It was just long enough for our 37-foot Class A, tow-dolly and parking the car. Some sites were a little wider. We had full hookups with 50 amp electric and no issues with any of them. WiFI was good and our Verizon signal was weak. There was loud train noise all night and road noise from Hwy 59. We stayed March 5-8, 2018 and paid $20 a night with our Passport America Discount. We camped at Texarkana RV Park & Event Center in a Motorhome.

Destiny Dallas RV Resort, Denton, Texas

Date of Stay: March, 2018 - $41.00
Overall Rating:

This is a snowbirds paradise. Large park with over 170 sites. Easy access into the park, some of turns inside the park are a little tight. Check in was fast and friendly. They have a small store with basic needs, a rec room and a pool. There is also a carwash on site with an RV stall with platforms on both sides, took advantage and cleaned the RV top to bottom. The park is well maintained. You are right off of I-35 so there was a lot of traffic noise and at times we were in the flight path for the airport. Most sites are very narrow but we were in Site 10, a long, level, gravel pull through with shade trees. We had full hookups with 50amp and no issues with any of them. The site is a Buddy site but very wide and with trees so not right on top of each other. It was plenty long enough for our 37-foot Class A, tow-dolly and parking the car. Laundry room and bathrooms were very clean. WiFi was just okay and our Verizon signal was good. There are big open fields for dog walking. We stayed March 1-5, 2018 and paid $41.00 with our Good Sam discount. We camped at Destiny Dallas RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Texas Rose RV Park, Tyler, Texas

Date of Stay: February, 2018 - $10.00
Overall Rating:

If you are a disabled Vet, this place is for you. The current owners have only had this park a short time and are working hard on improvements. They were building a new bathhouse while we were here. The park is a mix of overnight sites and permanent residents. It is clean and well kept up. There is a rec room with a pool table and other games and a continuous pot of coffee. The overnight sites circle around a playground area that also has horseshoe pits. Sites are gravel pull throughs with full hook ups and a picnic table. Ours was plenty long enough for our 37-foot Class A, tow-dolly and leaving the car attached. Park is quiet even though you are right off of the highway. There is a train that runs during the day. WiFi was good as was our Verizon signal. We stayed February 27 - March 1, 2018 and paid $10 a night with their disabled vet discount. They also offer Passport America discounts. We camped at Texas Rose RV Park in a Motorhome.

Antique Village RV Park, Simsboro, Louisiana

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

We stayed here twice, once on the way to Dallas for a wedding, and then again on the way out of Dallas. It is right off of I-20, easy access into the park. The roads in the park are a little rough, some potholes and tight turns. Check in both times was fast and friendly. We stayed in B-36 both stays, it is the perfect site. A level, gravel pull through with full hookups and no issues with any of them. The site is on top of a hill with a large wooden deck (most sites have one) with a picnic table and a nice view of the stocked pond. It was plenty long enough for our 37-foot Class A, tow-dolly and parking the car.

There are a number of permanent residents, some are a little rough. There is some trash laying around, but on our second visit it seemed some of it had been picked up. There are two permanent residents that never clean up after their dogs and of course it was always right in front of our RV. With all of that we did enjoy our stay. There is road noise, you will have that with easy access to the highway and a loud train. We stayed February 20-27, 2018 and again March 8-11, 2018. Did not use the laundry or bathrooms. WiFi was spotty and our Verizon signal was just okay. There is some road noise and a train. We paid $125 weekly rate first stop and $25.00 a night the second stop with our Good Sam Discount. We camped at Antique Village RV Park in a Motorhome.

River View RV Park & Resort, Vidalia, Louisiana

Date of Stay: February, 2018 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

This is a beautiful park and very well maintained. Easy access into the park and the roads inside the park are wide and easy to navigate. There are 174 sites, all but a few are pull throughs. Most have cement pads. Check in was fast and friendly. There is a rec room, gift shop, pool and hot tub and a playground. There is a 1.5 mile walkway along the river to the Visitor Center. There are a couple of cabins to rent and a large tent area. Laundry and bathrooms were clean.

We were in Site 99, concrete full hookups and no issues with any of them. It was plenty long enough for our 37-foot Class A, tow-dolly and parking the car. Nice view of the wide grassy area and the river. Sites are a little wider than normal. WiFi was good and our Verizon signal was strong. They pick up trash at your site throughout the day. We stayed February 13 - 20, 2018 and paid $40.00 a night with our Good Sam discount. We camped at River View RV Park & Resort in a Motorhome.

Okatoma Resort & RV Park, Hattiesburg, Mississippi

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

What a pretty park this is. The entry and exit roads are one-way roads, so no worries of running into anyone. Roads in the park are easy to navigate as well. There are over 70 sites, most all of them are back ins. They have a few cabins for rent as well. Most of the sites back up to one of the lakes on the property. Check in was fast and friendly. The laundry room and bathrooms were clean. We were is Site 41, full hookups and 50amp. Site was a bit unlevel and average width and just long enough for 37-foot Class A and room on the site for our tow-dolly. There is no WiFi but our Verizon Jetpack worked fine. There are plenty of places for dog walking, with paths around the lakes. They also have a fenced dog park. We stayed February 6-13, 2018 and paid $20 a night with a combination Passport America and Good Sam discounts. We camped at Okatoma Resort & RV Park in a Motorhome.

Pontchartrain Landing, New Orleans, Louisiana

Date of Stay: February, 2018 - $48.00
Overall Rating:

This is a large park with over 150 sites, pull-throughs, back-ins and buddy sites. Along with cabins, villas and boathouses to rent. The road into the park has some large pot holes so go slow. Once in the park, the roads are wide and they grade them regularly. Check in was fast and friendly, they have a store with trinkets and basic needs. There is a restaurant on site, good food and good service. The park is well maintained and right on the canal.

Sites are a little narrow but there are palms planted in between each one that offer privacy. We were in Site 43, had full hook-ups with no issues on any, a picnic table and it was just long enough for our 37-foot Class A, tow dolly and parking the car. They pick up garbage at your site. The laundry room was clean but most of the machines didn't work. WiFi was weak and our Verizon signal was just okay. Lots of place to walk the dog and a fenced dog run. There is some plane and train noise but not bad. We stayed January 30 - February 6, 2018 and $48.00 a night with our Passport America discount. We camped at Pontchartrain Landing in a Motorhome.

Pass Christian RV Park, Pass Christian, Mississippi

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

This is a small, no frills park. The road into the park is fine and the roads in the park are wide and easy to navigate. There are bathrooms and laundry but we did not use either. No management on site so we picked a spot and called to let them know which one. Park is well maintained and quiet. There is some construction noise from down the road. There is a mix of back in and pull through sites, all gravel. We were in Site #1, a wide pull through with full-hook ups, no issues with any and plenty long enough for our 37-foot Class A, tow-dolly and parking the car. There was a picnic table.

The manager was fantastic, she allowed us to have my husband meds from the VA shipped to her office in Gulfport and even offered to have them delivered to us. The road past the park is dirt and nothing on it so great place to walk the dog. There is no WiFI, our Verizon signal was good. We stayed January 21-30, 2018 and paid $15.00 a night with our Passport America discount. We camped at Pass Christian RV Park in a Motorhome.

The road into the park is good, the roads in the park had some pot-holes and tight turns. Check in was fast and efficient. This is a large park with mostly permanent residents. It is well kept up and quiet. Sites are about average width and back-ins with cement pads, grass area and picnic table. Our site was level, full-hook ups with no issues and long enough for or 37-foot Class A and parking the car. We stored the dolly on site next to the RV. The laundry room and bathrooms are clean. There is a nice rec room with a large screen TV. Lots of places to walk the dog and a large fenced dog run. Wi-Fi was good as was our Verizon signal. Did not use TV's.

Montgomery South RV Park, Hope Hull, Alabama

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

This is our second time staying at this park. It is easy access off of Highway 65 so there is road noise. The road into the park is easy to navigate. If you are using GPS/Google Maps it will stop you at the neighbors driveway: just keep going till you see the sign for the park. The roads in the park are nice and wide. Check in was fast and friendly. The owner and his son couldn't be nicer. We were in Site 24, a level, gravel pull through that is parallel to the road so your door side and picnic table are a little private.

There are full hook-ups, 50 amp electric. You need a regulator due to high water pressure. WiFi is good most of the time but there are some slowdowns. Our Verizon signal was strong. We stayed January 11 - 14, 2017 and paid $31.00 with our Good Same discount. We camped at Montgomery South RV Park in a Motorhome.

Springwood RV Park, Greenville, South Carolina

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

This is a combination mobile home park and RV park. They are in the process of converting it to all RV sites. The road in was good, the roads in the park do have a few tight turns, especially if cars are parked a little in the road. The park is mostly well kept up, with construction going on it is a little cluttered looking at the moment. The sites in the front part of the park are pretty close together. In the back of the park they are a little wider. Check in was fast and friendly. We were in Site 97, a gravel and grass back in with full hook-ups.

We arrived in the middle of the cold snap that was crossing the country and the water spout was frozen. The maintenance guy came right over and started heating it up to thaw it. The site was fairly level and long enough for our 37-foot Class A and parking the car, and plenty wide enough, we had no problem storing our tow-dolly on site. There is a train track that runs right down the middle of the park but we only heard it a couple of times a day and the latest they ran was around 9:30 at night. There are not a lot of places on site to walk the dog but large fields across the street. We stayed January 3 - 10, 2017 and paid $25.00 a night with their weekly rate. We camped at Springwood RV Park in a Motorhome.
