Isla Blanca Park, South Padre Island, Texas

Date of Stay: December, 2016 - $35.00
Overall Rating:      

We really like this park! First time here in December 2016 and we are very happy with our space. They are VERY spacious and have lots of room between the sites and your neighbor. We had a new neighbor come in next to us today and we didn't even know they were there! We didn't choose a premium site (they seem to get more wind), but we are a quick walk from the beach. Close to restrooms and showers. Our back in site is actually a front first pull in (which was a first for us). We pulled in face first up to the bushes and had to detach our truck and back it up through the grass and park the truck behind our trailer (so truck and RV are butt to butt). Like I said, this was a first and looks funny, but it works....I guess. Lots of places to walk around, nice tables and pavilion with big open beaches. For $35 a night, it is a great deal with full hookups (and includes $10 park entrance fee). The KOA right next door is double the price and they do have all of the amenities like laundry and pool, but they are SUPER close together, narrow roads and it's basically a parking lot. Yes, it has stickers, sand and bugs, but you are on the beach and it's a park! We posted lots of pics on our travel Facebook page: totally trailer if you wanted to see what it looks like before visiting. Happy travels and stay warm. We camped at Isla Blanca Park in a Travel Trailer.

When it's not windy, watch out for pesky mosquitos. Be sure to walk all over the park. There are tons of walkways and little bridges that take you between the park and the beach.

Pato Blanco Lakes RV Resort, Benson, Arizona

Date of Stay: December, 2016 - $31.00
Overall Rating:      

The manager was very nice and helpful. We were traveling through eastern Arizona and just needed a place to stay for the night. This is a 55+ park, but I didn't see that advertised anywhere. Although we are not age qualified, the manager made an exception for us and we were very grateful. The park was well kept, laundry room was clean, well stocked and empty. The bathrooms were clean and the hot tub was hot. You get a community key that opens the bathrooms, laundry and pool area so it is safe and secure. The freeway was behind us, but we never heard it inside the RV. We even filled up our propane tanks here, since they were the cheapest price per gallon in the whole town! We posted some pictures of the park and the camp site on our travel Facebook page if you'd like more info and photos to go with it: Totally Trailer. We camped at Pato Blanco Lakes RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Rock Hound State Park, Deming, New Mexico

Date of Stay: December, 2016 - $14.00
Overall Rating:      

The only reason we gave it 9 out of 10, was just because they don't have sewer hookups at the site (it's a dump station, which is typical for a state park). But still a must stop...As a last minute decision while driving through New Mexico, we decided to camp at Rockhound State Park. We are so glad we did! The only thing we regret about our stay was that we couldn't stay longer. This is a beautiful state park tucked up against a small mountain range that overlooks the city of Deming and has some spectacular views, scenery and well maintained sites. The hosts were very friendly and greeted us after the office had closed. They were full, but let us stay in their group space which was huge! It was paved with electric and water and had covered tables and 360 degree views. We were surrounded by ocotillos, various forms of cacti and lots of red rocks. The snow capped mountains in the distance made it picture perfect. The bathrooms were very clean (smelled like Pine Sol), the dump station was easy to get to and we can't wait to come back through again and spend some time here. We posted a lot of pictures in our travel Facebook if you want to check them out for future visits or to see it ahead of time: Totally Trailer....Happy travels! We camped at Rock Hound State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We have heard you can find rocks and gems very close to the park. We didn't get a chance to check it out but sure is exciting. By the way, we were going to stay overnight at the Deming, NM Walmart because they allow overnight. It was PACKED!! The people at the campground said it is always like that. SO, if you are thinking of dry camping there, this is a good alternative to being packed in and fighting for a spot at the Walmart. Other spaces at Rockhound without water and electric were $10

St George RV Park & Campground, Saint George, Utah

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $38.00
Overall Rating:      

Be warned this is not a friendly RV park! We should have known something was wrong when we called asking about availability, only to be told of all the rules they have and that they "don't do things the same here as in California and Nevada". We were also told that there were only 1 or 2 spaces available, when in fact the park was empty! The "manager" or guy in charge was rude and overcharged our credit card right off the bat. The park was empty (with the exception of permanents) but we were given a spot closest to the freeway with the smallest tree (in the middle of August). The whole reason we attempted this park is because it looked like it was the only RV park in St. George with shade and a pool. The pool was disgusting! It was full of dirt and was so milky and white that you could not see the bottom. Half of the park consists of full timers living in old run down motorhomes with lots of empty spaces. The freeway was less than 100 ft from our spot and between the big rig's Jake brakes and construction, nothing would drown out the noise (and we sleep with white noise makers, too). The space was big and easy pull-through but not level at all. This is also NOT a dog friendly RV park as evident by the 30-40 "No Dogs" signs everywhere around the park. We were charged per person (3 people), which was a first for us (and not advertised). But the worst was at check out. We were all hooked up and waiting for a thunderstorm to pass (about 30 min after checkout at 11am). The caretaker came by twice making sure we were leaving. He gave us 30 minutes and then 20 minutes later came back literally freaking out on us, flailing arms, demanding more money from us and forcing us to leave immediately. Caretaker and owner actually stood waiting for us to drive away from their empty park. In all of our years traveling we have never been treated like this, nor have we experienced this type of overtly rude behavior in ANY RV park. Noisy, dirty and rude, the whole situation was just bad! We camped at St George RV Park & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Thousand Trails Nevada, Las Vegas, Nevada

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $1.00
Overall Rating:      

We are Thousand Trails members and have been happy with them so far. We knew this one had damage from a February storm and that the pool was closed, but we needed to stay here for truck repairs (that were right down the road). Although we agree with the other reviewers that this campground is in need of some work and yes, it was a major bummer being there in July (during a heat wave) without a pool, and yes, the sites are narrow and bathrooms are very dated...however, the staff here more than makes up for what the location is lacking. The staff goes above and beyond to make you feel comfortable and welcome. They are kind, accommodating, funny and very helpful. We had fridge problems and were living out of a cooler and they would deliver bags of ice to our RV on a regular basis and allowed us to have parts shipped to the park for our fridge. Even the neighbors and permanent residents were friendly and gracious (one even offered for us to borrow their extra car while our truck was in the shop)! As an update, they just got all the permits and started work on fixing the pool and rec room (which we were told would be done by Sept. or Oct). We did feel safe here and it was convenient to shopping/Walmart and had easy access to freeways. We camped at Thousand Trails Nevada in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

If you like buffets, Green Valley Ranch off the 215 freeway was great! Easy access and short drive to the Vegas strip and Fremont Street Experience. FYI- if you need RV repairs in the area, we used James at Happy Hal's twice and he was very thorough!
