About 2FullTimersinaFifth

We fulltime in a 40' fifthwheel. Our fifthwheel is just over 13'4" tall, so if we experienced clearance issues it will likely be included in our review (to help others with taller RVs).

Cedar Cove RV Park, Elephant Butte, New Mexico

Date of Stay: November, 2018 - $43.00
Overall Rating:

We will likely not return. Our goal was to stay hitched-up overnight and we specifically picked this campground because they said they had a site that could accommodate us-our goal was not accomplished. After a very long check-in process, we found the site they assigned to us was already occupied. The only other site they had in their "long pull-thru area" was too short for us. They ultimately found a site that could work, but we needed to unhitch to fit into the site. I would not call this park big rig "friendly", but big rig possible. They advertise 80' long sites, however the defined site area is about 50'-60' [my estimation, based upon pacing out one of their long pull thru sites]. The remaining 20'-30' of these sites is part road/open area-we would be very uncomfortable parking in a number of these sites, being concerned someone might drive into the side of the RV and/or vehicle that extended beyond the 50'-60' defined site area. Sites towards the center of this row are likely "ok", particularly if you have neighbors who are using 80' (i.e., someone will potentially see/hit your neighbor's vehicle/RV before reaching your site). The campground has very pretty views, although there is a large radio tower (or similar structure) in the middle of the campground. The campground was quiet, during our one night stay. We camped at Cedar Cove RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Santa Fe Skies RV Park, Santa Fe, New Mexico

Date of Stay: October, 2018 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

We enjoyed our three-week stay at this campground. It was a good base to visit Santa Fe, Ghost Ranch and other surrounding points of interest. The mountain views and sunsets from the campground are beautiful. We really enjoyed the sculptures throughout the campground-a very nice added touch. Our site more than fit us, which is always nice. It is one of the nicest commercial campgrounds that we have found near a larger/tourist city. A unique combination of pretty views, sculptures, a site that fit us, and it was quiet ... a mix that we have not found otherwise. The only negative is site spacing in general (side to side) is not spacious, but not bad-in our particular site, it was fine. Also, the people who work here are very nice and customer service focused (when making reservations, checking in, etc.)-which further adds to the appeal! We will return. We camped at Santa Fe Skies RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Maplewoods Campground, Johnson, Vermont

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $43.00
Overall Rating:

Our site had insufficient electrical power to run both of our air conditioners at most times. At all times we had to watch what electrical items were simultaneously turned "on". Nice spacing (wider than a typical commercial campground); and no visual privacy between sites. In general, the view from the campground is pretty (i.e., hay field and mountains in the distance). A small number of sites have that view. Roads and sites are packed dirt with some gravel. There was often a lot of dust in the air. The campground was typically quiet. We had numerous undesirable surprises upon our arrival - they tried to charge us a higher site cost, beyond what they quoted us for our specific site. We learned about surcharges (e.g., $3 daily charge to use AC or heat) and they not only charge for their wifi, but it is only available within 300 feet of their office building. Our bill was incorrect and it took MANY conversations for them to realize they made an error (i.e., on our bill, they applied the 6% sales tax to the site rate and then additionally applied the 6% sales tax again to the total bill). None of the information that surprised us was available on their website; shared verbally (even when relevant questions were asked, such as confirming that electric usage was included in the site cost); nor was the information included when they sent us our reservation confirmation. Note: Our Verizon and AT&T data and cell coverage was weak at times and sometimes non-existent. AT&T's data coverage was typically a little better, when Verizon's coverage was weak or non-existent. We camped at Maplewoods Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Cedar Key RV Resort, Cedar Key, Florida

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $23.00
Overall Rating:

We spent 2-months over the winter and 3-months the prior winter at this resort. Many of the sites can handle larger RVs, the reason we initially chose the resort was their site size (larger than what you can typically find otherwise in Florida). Downtown Cedar Key and the general area is interesting, it has some restaurants and things to do, otherwise the location is a little remote (i.e., if you want a good grocery store (in my opinion) you need to travel an hour, there are options closer but they are limited); however there are some great local places to purchase clams and oysters. This resort is quiet and prettier than many other commercial campgrounds/resorts we have stayed at in Florida. The resort also has many very nice regulars (some who own lots here), who seasonally stay at the resort. We camped at Cedar Key RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Willow Tree Resort and Campground, Longs, South Carolina

Date of Stay: March, 2018 - $29.00
Overall Rating:

A beautiful campground with large well-spaced sites; one of the nicer commercial campgrounds that we have stayed at. We particularly enjoyed our lake front site and the mile long walking trail that circles the lake. A very peaceful and relaxing campground. Also, we were told by neighbors that the park upgraded their Wifi in 2017 - we thought the upgraded free Wifi worked well (i.e., the same or better than other campgrounds). Most sites are big rig friendly. [$29 Daily rate listed was the monthly off-season rate, before taxes or electric usage charges.] We camped at Willow Tree Resort and Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Oak Plantation Campground, Charleston, South Carolina

Date of Stay: March, 2018 - $66.00
Overall Rating:

Trains, Planes, Autos, Ambulances and Fire Trucks - yes, there is noise here. We ran a few fans in the evening [for white noise] that helped, but that did not solve the noise issue (i.e., our sleep was still periodically disturbed). For anything more than a short stay, we would have a problem with the noise at this campground. We have stayed at this campground twice. The positive is the site assigned to us, both times, fit us. We did not care for the site during our first visit, a little closer to our neighbors than we prefer and it was very unlevel front to back. The site that was assigned to us, during the second visit, was nicer (i.e., better site length and spacing). The campground location makes a trip to the historic areas of Charleston relatively easy, but due to the noise, outdated facilities and infrastructure as well as you can't reserve a specific site [nor will they tell you the site they assigned to you, until you arrive at the campground] - we don't find this campground overly desirable. However, the campground does have some big rig friendly sites. We camped at Oak Plantation Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Island Resort Family Campground & RV Park, Newark, Maryland

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

Natural Beauty and Big Rig Friendly - a nice combination! We have stayed at this campground for numerous years; we think this is the nicest campground in the area. We enjoy the natural beauty, friendly owners and the peace and quiet (although we normally staying here off-season, we have found the campground enjoyable in-season). We visited many area campgrounds before initially deciding to stay at Island Resort Campground and continue to return to this campground, year-after-year. The owners recently added some additional RV sites, the spacing and levelness of these new sites shows that they understand their business and customers (i.e., their new pull-through sites can fit the largest of RVs [length and height] and are very level). We camped at Island Resort Family Campground & RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

James Island County Park, Charleston, South Carolina

Date of Stay: January, 2018 - $55.00
Overall Rating:

Not a good option for tall RVs. Tree limb clearance issues on the roads leading to the county park had us cancel our reservations. The tallest RV we notices within campground was 12'2" (I asked the owners), so RVs that are around that height should not have an issued navigating the roads to the county park and within the campground. Our challenge is that we are just over 13'4" (with solar panels on the roof) and we could not find any route that had trees trimmed high enough, so we could safely travel to the county park. We thought we would be "ok", but choose to stay at an area campground for a few days prior to our county park reservations, to make sure. The route that campground suggested (and someone within the park also confirmed) was the best for tree limb clearance was traveling down Folley Rd/171 to Camp Road and then taking a right onto Riverland Drive to reach the county park entrance. We drove down those roads and various others (solely in our truck), without finding a route we were comfortable we could safely travel on. We did drive past our reserved sites 31 and 37, which looked like they could have easily fit us. We camped at James Island County Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

The route to the county park that has the best tree limb clearance is traveling down Folley Rd/171 to Camp Road and then taking a right onto Riverland Drive to reach the county park entrance. Note: There is currently ongoing construction on Camp Road, which could make the right hand turn off of 171 to Camp Road complicated for longer RVs (alt. past Camp Road and make a U-turn in the Walmart parking lot; thereby enabling you to turn left onto Camp Road from 171).

Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center State Park, White Springs, Florida

Date of Stay: December, 2017 - $24.00
Overall Rating:

A pretty state park. Some of the sites are large RV friendly, some sites have nice visual privacy (i.e., vegetation between the sites) but it is more typically that there is minimal visual privacy between sites. Our particular site would have fit any size RV and had a fair amount of vegetation that provided added visual privacy. We enjoyed the small museum, carillon and the various state park walking trails during our stay. We camped at Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Henderson Beach State Park, Destin, Florida

Date of Stay: December, 2017 - $33.00
Overall Rating:

Beautiful state park, nice site privacy due to vegetation (some the best we have seen), nice paved trails and raised walk leading to the beach. The beach front is 1.5 miles wide; we walked to a local restaurant via the beach during our stay. There was some road/area noise (concert) during our stay, even given the distance the campground area is from the road, we found that surprising-but we still enjoyed our stay. The angle of the site that we stayed in, compared to the road, and the dense vegetation on the interior road limited our swing room when backing into the site (possible, but it took a little time); many of the other sites would be easier to back-into (i.e., better site angled, compared to the road, and there are also some very large pull-thru sites). The larger pull through sites can easily handle big rigs. An oasis in a congested area. We camped at Henderson Beach State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Kellogg RV Park, Kellogg, Iowa

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

We would not choose to stay here again, unless it is an emergency (i.e, better than a rest stop or truck stop). Although well rated on RVParkReviews, this park is rundown (i.e., grass appears to not have been mowed in months), site are very unlevel side to side -- leveling took quite a while and required numerous pieces of wood under one rear bigfoot (the bigfoot leveling arm was not long enough) and under two of the three tires on one side of the RV to level. The trees over the exit road appear to have not been trimmed in years and only were trimmed high enough for our truck to pass under ... thankfully no RVs were in any sites on the left side of this exit road when we departed, so we drove across the back end of those sites when exiting, missing the many low tree limbs. It looks like numerous of the RVs in the park are parked here for the longer term. There is noticeable highway noise, but that was expected based upon reviews and looking at the proximity of the campground to the highway on google earth. The positives are it is convenient to the highway, we fit in the site, no tree issue at least within our site--however the feeling of security was not alarming but at the same time was not warm and fuzzy ... if we had not arrived close to sunset, we would have departed and stayed elsewhere. We camped at Kellogg RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

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

A nice campground with beautiful mountain views from the campground and some sites. The entire park is well maintained, and longer-term stayer yards were well kept and maintained. Many of the sites are big rig friendly. Sites are not guaranteed (and can easily change, based upon our experience), but the owner did a very good job addressing our site requests. Customer service, that went above and beyond - and very appreciated. A very nice owner. We will certainly return, if we travel through this area again.

Henrys Lake State Park, Island Park, Idaho

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $31.00
Overall Rating:

A beautiful state park with a wonderful view of Henry's Lake, mountains and a lot of wildlife (primarily birds, but we did see a moose during one of our visits). The campground is about 30 minutes from the west entrance to Yellowstone National Park. We initially stayed here during a visit to Yellowstone, but enjoyed the state park so much we have returned since to primarily spend time at the state park and the surrounding area.

Many of the sites can handle larger RVs. Many of the sites are not level, front to back, since they slope towards the lake; this did not present a problem for us, but we did notice many motorhomes had to use blocks under one set of the tires. A few sites have full-hookups (water, electric, sewer), but most are solely water and electric. We enjoyed staying 2-weeks (their stay limit) at this beautiful and quiet state park, several times to date. We camped at Henrys Lake State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Mountain View RV Park, Columbia Falls, Montana

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

The campground has a new owner, so ideally things will continue to improve, but we will likely stay somewhere else the next time we visit the Glacier National Park area. PROS: The newly installed WIFI operated better than most campground WIFI systems, but as would be expected, it is dependent on how many people are using the wifi system. The grass is regularly mowed. The site spacing is tight, but better than some other RV parks in town. The owner nicely put us in a site that was behind the main building, which helped muffle the highway traffic noise. CONS: There were numerous older RVs that appeared not to be well cared for in the RV park (something the new owner likely inherited). The trash dumpster was overflowing for several days during our stay (not a good sign, since that is under the new owner's control). Bottom line the RV park is "ok", but not overly desirable, campground to stay at when visiting Glacier National Park: site spacing is tight; the park is expensive (for what you receive and compared to some other campgrounds in the area); there is road noise; and the park is not particularly attractive which was further exacerbated by the numerous older RVs in disrepair. We camped at Mountain View RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Blackwell Island RV Park, Coeur d'Alene, Idaho

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $55.00
Overall Rating:

This RV Park is well located near the major highways, and close to downtown Coeur d'Alene. Overall, we felt like the park would be sufficient for making a short visit to the area. The park is clean. Sites are gravel, narrow, and are very close together. Interior roads are narrow, and many cars and tow vehicles had to park partially on the roads. Our tow vehicle would not fit on the pad, so we had to park it partially on the grass area next to the site. The majority of the individual sites did not have any landscaping or shade trees, to break up the "parking lot" feel. We found that the park's WiFi was weak, with constant dropping of the signal (using a signal booster). There was road noise from Route 95 (although the noise quieted down during the evening), and from the Marina that is located next door. There was construction activity at the Marina (right after the Memorial day weekend), with truck and equipment noise starting early in the morning. Overall, we felt that this is an average park, and very expensive ($55 per night and up) for the size of the sites, lack of landscaping, inadequate WiFi, and the "parking lot" feel. It would not be a park where we would want to spend an extended period of time. We camped at Blackwell Island RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
