Gulf State Park Campground, Gulf Shores, Alabama

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $53.00
Overall Rating:

This park is HUGE but awesome. There is so much to do here and the beach is so close. The campground cost is a bit high for a state park but it does include a 11% lodging fee and at 15% resort fee. The pool, trails, and beach are great. Park reservations get you free access to the fishing pier and parking at the pavilion. The staff is nice and the front office is manned 24/7. Trail system is great and has a mixture of paved and unpaved trails. Love the boardwalks that go over the lakes, canals, and marshes, which are great for watching wildlife. Got to see a bobcat crossing the road and a baby cottonmouth, which was promptly relocated by park staff, but no alligators. Give yourself a bit more time to get there. You will have to go through Gulf Shores or Orange Beach traffic to get to the park. If you go through Orange Beach you will have to pay a toll to cross a bridge. However it is nice having these vacation destinations nearby to get good food and other entertainment for the kids. Camp store rents bicycles so if you forget it or don't have room you will still be able to ride around. We had site 48 which was on a quiet little cul-de-sac. It made the park seem small and didn't even notice that there were 400+ other campers. I would avoid site 49 as there is a little trail right next to it that runs to and from the pool/camp store/nature center area. Bath house and restrooms are a hair dated but are very clean. Cell coverage (AT&T) was good but data lagged significantly. OTA was great with Mobile and Pensacola nearby. We would camp here again. We camped at Gulf State Park Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

If you get a spot on the main road, Raccoon Road, you will have LOTS of traffic all day and night long. Recommend that you get a spot on an outer ring road on the pull-thrus at the very end of Raccoon Road, sites 447-468. The vegetation at the sites along the Boat Canal and Middle Lake a fairly thick and there are signs warning you about alligators, although we did not see any, and this cuts down on your outdoor space a bit.

Paul B. Johnson State Park, Hattiesburg, Mississippi

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

Nice park on a relatively quiet little lake just off US 49. We stayed at site 17 which is close to the beach. Recommend not getting site 16 as it is right next to a small bridge that takes you to a small island in the lake and has a fair amount of foot traffic. Our site had plenty of room around the camper as well as to the side. Patio was gravel, rest of the site was asphalt. Main office closes at five. A fair amount of hills once you get into the campground and not a lot of hiking trails but if you have a boat the lake seems really nice. Only downside were the gnats or mosquito type flies that covered our camper in the morning so make sure you "fog" the area if you like to sit out in the morning with your cup of coffee. I think that there was a fire ring off to the side but it was not well established, just a few rocks in what looked like a circle. We would camp here again. We camped at Paul B. Johnson State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

If you have a long rig recommend entering the campground from the from north, exit US 49 onto Tower Road and then make the turn onto Geiger Lake Road. Once in the park the office will be to your right and campground to the left. Our GPS took us to the entrance off S Lake Drive. When you enter this way you have to go across a dam and there is a small drop and rise, entering and exiting the dam that can cause longer rigs to drag the ground.

Maumelle COE, Little Rock, Arkansas

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $26.00
Overall Rating:

Nice COE Park just outside Little Rock. The B Loop has nice spots by the river and are very nice to have a relaxing evening outside by its banks, however the spots on the south end of the B Loop have lots of vegetation and your view of the river is blocked. If you want to be back in the trees I recommend staying in the western end of the C Loop. The sites in the A and F Loop are a lot closer together and the A Loop has several "long term" sites for campers visiting the hospitals in Little Rock. There could be a few more dumpsters in the park and the playground is older and a bit lacking. Many OTA stations as Little Rock is close by and cell service (AT&T) was fine. We camped at Maumelle COE in a Motorhome.

Lincoln Parish Park, Ruston, Louisiana

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

A gem of a park located less than 10 minutes north of I-20. The park is owned by the Parish (County) and is about 30 minutes west of Monroe and 60 minutes east of Shreveport. If you are passing through stop here. The park is kept up well and has a nice paved walking path around the small lake, which has a small beach, and tons of mountain biking trails. About half of the sites have been redone with a concrete pad and have a small patio area with a railing around the back of the site, if it is by the lake. The rest of the sites are asphalt and have pretty close and steep drop offs towards the lake. The drop offs make most of the fire rings unusable and give you little to no patio room. They are in the process of redoing the sites on the outside of the road before they work on the pull-thrus (of which they have 4) when they get enough funding from the Parish. Cell service was great (AT&T), OTA and Dish users may have trouble getting a signal due to all the wonderfully tall trees. Despite the minor issues with the site, it appears it is first come first serve, however you can make a reservation just not reserve a specific spot, this is a really nice campground and park. Be advised that the gate closes each night so if you are coming in late make sure that you call ahead and find out how to get in. We camped at Lincoln Parish Park in a Motorhome.

Table Rock Lake State Park, Branson, Missouri

Date of Stay: March, 2017 - $28.00
Overall Rating:

Stayed in Campground 1 in Site 128 which was a FHU. Campground was nice but the FHU spots were a bit closer than I have seen. There are other spots in Campground 1 that are electric only with shared water that were more spaced apart and set in the trees, we had trees around us but none right in our spot. Very small playground area, shower house at the other end of the campground looked newer than the one by us and they are doing some sort of construction there as well. For what it is worth I liked the looks of Campground 1 better than Campground 2 as Campground 2 felt more like your standard private RV park, however it is closer to the marina and boat ramp. A few channels OTA and cell service was fine (AT&T). Campground host was fairly active and enforced quiet hours, mainly on sites near his unit but not at the far reaches of the campground. Nice paved walking travel located next to the campground. Turn at the end of the campground by spots 125-130 very tight and some larger rigs had trouble making it. We camped at Table Rock Lake State Park in a Motorhome.

Nice area, close enough to Branson to go and do things but far enough away that you did not feel caught up in it. Go to the fish hatchery, its free to go in, and the kids can buy food, 25 cents per handful, to feed the fish. See Buckets & Boards if they are in town, great for all ages and true entertainers.

Trailer Village (Concessionnaire Operated), Grand Canyon National Park, Arizona

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $36.00
Overall Rating:

Make sure you make your reservations in plenty of time as sites during prime vacation times book up quickly. Cable was good, although half of the channels showed as mirror images. Cell reception was spotty, and no wifi. It is all about location with this campground as you are conveniently located a short 10-15 minute walk from the rim (it also connects to a greenway that is paved and will take you throughout the park), or right on a free shuttle bus loop that will take you right up to the Visitor's Center which will allow you to connect to all the other shuttle bus routes throughout the park.

My site was sloped pretty badly and required me to use almost about 16 levelers and lower my tongue jack to the ground to get my camper level. The only downside was that the Delaware North Corporation, who runs the campground and many of the other contracted services on the South Rim, has permanent, temporary, and trailer housing on the south side of the campground. Some of these units are pretty rundown or have a lot of clutter around them. Other than that, the location could not be beat. I would camp here again. We camped at Trailer Village (Concessionnaire Operated) in a Travel Trailer.

Cheyenne Mountain State Park, Colorado Springs, Colorado

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $33.00
Overall Rating:

Great park and a great value for your money. Big thing is to remember that you will be charged a $7 per day (expires at 12 pm the next day) fee to use the park, make sure you pay at the visitors center or, if after hours, use the self pay station. Pads were concrete and level, all hookups were easy, and the picnic area and fire pit were great. We had a wonderful view of Colorado Springs and it was very easy to get on and off I-25 to all the attractions northwest of the city (Garden of the Gods, Cave of the Winds, and Pikes Peak Cog Railway were all only about 20 minutes away). AT&T signal was strong. If you have a dog that you like to take on hikes be aware that they are not allowed on trails, kind of a bummer but the other benefits of this park outweighed this negative. Don't be nervous about the bear and other wildlife signs, just be smart with your food and all will be just fine, we had zero issues. We camped at Cheyenne Mountain State Park in a Travel Trailer.

They have provided great site descriptions. Make sure you read them as some spots have a very steep entry and if you are pushing the pad length you may not fit.

Echo Canyon Camping and RV Park (Formerly Park Fort Gorge RV Park & Ca, Canon City, Colorado

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

We were only looking for a place to spend two nights that would allow us to see the Royal Gorge and go rafting and this location did that. Despite being a decent sized park, all full hookup sites are right on top of each other and it makes you feel very crowded when the rest of the park is completely open. Site was all dirt and slightly sloped. It was uphill from my sewer connection to the dump spot, even with sewer support holder my tanks would not drain, had to drive to the dump station on the way out to empty the tanks. Also, water and electric connections are at one end of the site and sewer is that the other end, all hoses were stretched to their limits and I only have a 26' camper. No cable and there were no over the air channels to be found. WiFi was good and cell reception was okay (AT&T). Main issue was the stickers, everywhere you walked you ran into them, except the gravel drive, they even worked their way through our ground carpet. Road noise was not all that bad and we had a site right near the front of the property. One of our nights was a Saturday and we could barely hear the live band when we were sitting outside of our camper and not at all once inside. Yes there is a helicopter but they have talked to the pilot and he rarely overflies the campground, even if the winds make him takeoff in the direction of the campground he quickly turns and flies over the neighboring farm land. I would stay here again for how close it is to their rafting company, located across US 50. We camped at Echo Canyon Camping and RV Park (Formerly Park Fort Gorge RV Park & Ca in a Travel Trailer.

By all means go across the street and take a trip with their rafting company, Echo Canyon River Expeditions! First rate organization and well run, hopefully the same mentality will turn the campground around a bit more. We did the half day Big Horn Sheep Canyon, prefect for all, even those with younger children, ours are 8 and 10. Our guide was fantastic.

Alpen Rose RV Park, Durango, Colorado

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $48.00
Overall Rating:

Nice park just on the North side of Durango. Took about 10 minutes to get into the heart of town. My site was pretty sloped and required me to use about 16 levelers as well as raising my tongue jack pretty high to just get the camper level. Cable signal was strong (about 8 channels), WiFi was strong (they give you password), and cell reception was good (we have AT&T). All you can eat chuck wagon breakfast was cooked every morning, it smelled great but we did not feel like paying the extra $8.95 per adult (I think children were $5-6). Self-service dog wash available for $10, trout pond available (looked pretty stocked) but you have to keep what you catch (no catch and release) and pay $4.80 per fish, and a pizza place is located in the office and open everyday until 8 PM. Washer and dryers were open until 10 PM and run you around $5 to wash and dry one load. They have a nice above ground pool (open until 8 PM) but the playground was limited to two swings and a tether ball. I would stay here again. We camped at Alpen Rose RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

American RV Resort, Albuquerque, New Mexico

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $37.00
Overall Rating:

Nice park to stop and spend the night, did so on our way from OK to AZ. Made my reservation online and when I got there found out that the site assigned to me was going to be too tight so the staff moved me to another site that was just long enough so I did not have to completely unhook. They did all this despite the fact that it was 30 minutes after the office closed. Cable was a bit fuzzy but there were plenty of over the air channels available for our brief stay. Breakfast in the morning was simple (coffee, juice, cereal, toast, bagels, pastries, eggs, and oatmeal) but enough to get you up and moving, especially when it was all included in the price. Most of the full-timers were in the back of the park so us "temporary" patrons did not feel like we were encroaching on someone's house. We camped at American RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.
