Playa Bonita Resort, Puerto PeƱasco (Rocky Point), Sonora

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

We've stayed here on & off for years, when the park was empty, full or nearly full, and thru spring break. We pay by the month & price reflects that. Very convenient to the neighboring hotel, where we USUALLY have fine Mexican food. Several miles of very good beach. The showers have been improved a lot! The toilets are ok, and the laundry is 'interesting'. It's Mexico. But the place is more and more over-run with 'Motos' (ATV's) despite TWO signs as you enter declaring ' No Motos'. Some riders are slow and respectful in the park, but plenty are loud and create a constant dust storm, especially on the entry road along the back wall...all the way to the back of the park. Try to get a site up nearer the office, or close to the seawall especially during busy times. The management insists that you can reserve A site, but not a particular site. We don't believe this is true, but haven't figured out how to reserve a premium (away from the back entry road) site. Many sites sit empty even when it's busy, but are still somehow not available for days at a time until some gringo rolls in that understands the 'system'. Somehow the people in the office seem to be getting more and more surly as time passes. Not very welcoming. That said, the internet while sketchy thru much of the park is fine in the Read Room, the 'campers' are fun and mostly energetic, and the work done by service folk (contractors) in the park is usually very good. We camped at Playa Bonita Resort in a Motorhome.

Valley of Fires Recreation Area (BLM), Carrizozo, New Mexico

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

Loved our stay here. Most (not all) sites close to level, lots of room, interesting geology and stellar views! Good Verizon cell service, which meant strong internet with MiFi device. Big central bath was clean enough but needed a little care - holiday (Labor Day) weekend could have been the reason. Good 50 amps service, tasty water at site. Dump station in campground. We will be back. We camped at Valley of Fires Recreation Area (BLM) in a Motorhome.

Carrizozo was ok, but we liked Capitan a bit further to the east. Also Lincoln (farther east still) has some very interesting, if violent, western history.

Harmon Lake Recreation Area, Mandan, North Dakota

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $22.00
Overall Rating:      

Big, wide open park. Much dry camping but several (unknown) number of sites with electric. On a hillside above a pretty man-made lake, the park can be very windy at times. Sites are huge; ours was a pull-through. Potable water faucets here and there; we don't recall any at sites. Good beach & swimming. Quiet 'No Wake' Lake Harmon is popular with paddlers. Some miles north of Mandan so stock up in town. We would certainly stay here again. We camped at Harmon Lake Recreation Area in a Motorhome.

Beautiful (8 or 9 mile) drive following the Missouri River up from Mandan. Mandan has a lot of history and a cowboy atmosphere; Bismarck next door more 'cosmopolitan'. This park is a rustic, hidden gem.

Hickiwan Trails RV Park, Ajo, Arizona

Date of Stay: March, 2017 - $19.00
Overall Rating:      

Just a wonderful park. Very quiet with a spectacular night sky! Coyotes singing and a herd of (wild?) burros provide entertainment. Gas station (+diesel) with general store and small casino within walking distance, otherwise quite remote. Sizeable sites; excellent water. Staff & management very helpful and friendly. 30 amp or 50 amp, same price. Good walking and biking paths, but these are also remote and pretty wild. Understand the desert before you wander off. We camped at Hickiwan Trails RV Park in a Motorhome.

Bishop RV Park (at the Tri-County Fairgrounds), Bishop, California

Date of Stay: October, 2016 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

A great place to stay. Basically a dirt parking lot and pretty dusty, but it's the desert! There were several sites large enough for our 38' motorhome; we were one of the largest in the campground. Strong 50 amp service, water & sewer. Excellent bathrooms and showers; very clean and roomy. The only downside was that there was absolutely no provision to hang anything up, unless you used the handicapped shower.
If you enjoy walking at all you can walk to any number of restaurants and retail stores, typically 3-4 blocks away including Von's (Safeway) grocery and K-Mart. Other campers here were very friendly and it was busy with a couple of 'groups' when we stayed. Office people charming & helpful.
We would be happy to stay here again. We camped at Bishop RV Park (at the Tri-County Fairgrounds) in a Motorhome.

Bishop is a good place to stay when visiting area attractions. We loved Convict Lake, the Ancient Bristlecone Pines. Those and many other attractions less than hour away. Yosemite (and Mono Lake) maybe 1.5 hours. Very convenient!

Butch Cassidy RV Park and Campground, Salina, Utah

Date of Stay: September, 2011 - $22.00
Overall Rating:      

Very friendly and interesting. Check out the exotic bird enclosures! The pool was closed when we were there, and the pull through sites were a little tight. But everything was well kept, with large clean restrooms. Fair Verizon service and 22+ channels of free TV on the bat wing antennae. Our very reasonable price reflects the Good Sam discount. We camped at Butch Cassidy RV Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

We enjoyed this small, friendly park. The sites were small but manageable. Hosts very friendly & helpful; very good Verizon service. The bathrooms were small but clean, and the location was excellent -- you could walk or bicycle anywhere in town. We camped at Hideaway RV Campground in a Motorhome.

Oxbow Park, Byron, Minnesota

Date of Stay: May, 2011 - $18.00
Overall Rating:      

This place is like a dream. Beautiful park! Small but attractive campground, great little zoo with well cared for animals, a pretty river and lots of hiking. The newer restroom building is also the storm shelter, and very well-built indeed. For a county park this is good as it gets. Lots of antenna TV, fair Verizon reception. 8 miles to Rochester and the Mayo Clinic. We would definitely return if we had the chance. We camped at Oxbow Park in a Motorhome.

Beautiful park. Restrooms ok, (no hand soap), showers were great with fierce water pressure! Hang on to your toupee. Nice collection of TV channels with batwing antenna, including PBS. Verizon access good. Excellent nature trails and lots of wildlife. Another excellent COE park. We camped at Outlet (Melvern) COE in a Motorhome.

Canyon Cove (formerly Canyon Falls RV Park), Canyon Lake, Texas

Date of Stay: May, 2011 - $45.00
Overall Rating:      

Tough times here. The nice camp hosts tried very hard, but they don't have much to work with. There are little ponds and streams through out the park, but they are mostly empty because of the drought. Many permanent guests; few RVer's. Lots of roaming dogs and cats. Cable TV didn't work, but we had 12 channels using the batwing. Verizon coverage was fair. The laundry, toilets and showers were in a quonset type building, 4 unisex toilet/shower stalls had no sinks or toilet paper(?!) There was one sink near the end of the stalls, near the laundry. Unless you're pretty hardy, you might want a self-contained rig to stay here. The nightly rate is WAY too high. We camped at Canyon Cove (formerly Canyon Falls RV Park) in a Motorhome.

Bunk Haus Lodging & RV Park, Canyon Lake, Texas

Date of Stay: May, 2011 - $21.00
Overall Rating:      

A little dusty, as previously noted - but so is most of Texas in this drought. Decent sized sites. At $21.00 this place was a good deal at Canyon Lake. If you are towing & can't back up, you might want to park at the office and walk thru to check out the campground. We found a dead end street after we'd turn down it. Fair Verizon coverage, several channels of TV with the rooftop antennae. We would stay here again. We camped at Bunk Haus Lodging & RV Park in a Motorhome.

Date of Stay: September, 2010 - $23.00

Cash only in this RV park. Large, level sites. Like a big gravel parking lot. Full hook-ups. There was cable; we didn't use it. The washrooms and showers were locked at 5:00 pm, and management told us they were unavailable. Laundry worked OK. We would not stay here again. We camped at Benson I-10 RV Park in a Motorhome.

Date of Stay: September, 2010 - $16.00
Overall Rating:      

A mile or so north of town, at the west end, this RV/trailer park is a good deal. Level sites with shade. Electric and water only as far as we could tell, but the hosts were very friendly and attentive. We were probably the only transients, but everybody was pleasant. They are not in Trailer Life guide, but the host said she is working on a website for the park. We would stay again. We camped at Moon Meadows in a Motorhome.

Western Hills Campground, Rawlins, Wyoming

Date of Stay: September, 2010 - $22.00
Overall Rating:      

A level, gravel parking lot, but it works. We had a picnic table and electric only for $22 with Good Sam discount. Free WiFi which we did not use. It's a few bucks more for full hookup (sewer and water) and more money yet if you want the cable TV: right around $30. We find this multi-tiered pricing aggravating. There is a tent area, and a 'no hookup' place for RVer's. Streets are big and wide, but once parked your neighbors are VERY close. A nice laundry room is near the office. The toilets are open 24 hours, but the showers are available only when the office is open; from 7-10 am and from 2 -9 pm. The park is convenient to many services, and close to I-25. We camped at Western Hills Campground in a Motorhome.
