Benton Oaks RV & Campground, Corvallis, Oregon

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $35.00
Overall Rating:      

Nice park - with friendly staff. I was in the corner (A-1) which was perfect - not quite level but livable w/o any adjusting/levelers - all part pf the plan to see the Eclipse and the park filled to the gills for THAT event. The park is part of the county fairgrounds (the fair had ended a couple weeks before I arrived). The bath house was fine as was the laundry. Of course being fairgrounds it was out of town but not so far as to be considered "remote" . Next door to a older (a little tired) MHP but no concerns there. Would return for sure. We camped at Benton Oaks RV & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Trailer Lane RV Park, Weed, California

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $35.00
Overall Rating:      

Great little park - more like a converted "farm" with more of an open field with rows of nose-to-tail parking. Stayed twice this summer (savoring the novelty of the town's name) - very helpful and nice staff - had same sire both times - just used the electric both times as was really "on the way" elsewhere but prefer to stay a couple or few days rather than just overnight. Was at front of my row (not sure how someone would get out if parked behind me - though plenty came and went during my brief stays) Yes the c/g is between the hwy and a railroad but was do-able. More than willing to return. Can't blame them for the dust - the effects of the drought are everywhere. We camped at Trailer Lane RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Drive down to see Mt Shasta and the Butte - visible from the town (alas 2nd visit smoke/haze clouded the view) = a quaint little town full of friendly people - busy with logging industry - maybe should open a dispensary when Calif joins the others in Jan '18

Grand Sierra Resort RV Park, Reno, Nevada

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $45.00
Overall Rating:      

Let's start with the cost - $45 is average as Fri & Sat were $50 and Thu and Sun were $40 - for a pull thru 30 amp FHU site. Be sure to factor in the taxes and fee - my window tag said a $18 "resort" fee and a $2 "tourism" fee would be added daily - though my receipt showed a 13% tax added on to the $40 or $50 so THAT might be something. The "resort"name comes from the Casino/Hotel (and all that it offers) but DOES NOT apply to the RV Park. I had plenty of space between myself and my two neighbors - however my curbside neighbor and HIS curbside neighbor had NO room at all and his awning would have touched the other's slide. The RV park is a glorified parking lot - the 50 amp sites were paved the others were gravel. Roads were all paved but had be weathered and were quite rough in spots. A few trees scattered around - sites had no table, patio or fire pit/ring. A significant problem arose when the row I was in lost power mid to late afternoon 4 separate times on 3 days of my stay. I fired up my generator and used it for a few hours before even checking to see if power had returned. One day I decided "heck with it" and walked to casino and finished watching the baseball game on the TV in the kid's arcade area - then went and played the slots for an hour. At check in about 1 PM the staff member couldn't get the computer working to print my door tag - and said he wasn't sure my site had been vacated as hadn't "done the check yet". Awful pricey for what I got. We camped at Grand Sierra Resort RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Coachland RV Park, Truckee, California

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $60.00
Overall Rating:      

A nice place and well appointed - just kinda pricey at $60 a night - my site was one of a few I saw that were actually a single - where most were "back to back" with a service "island" between and a few looked like their slides came very close to touching backs. Staff was very helpful as I called ahead to say I was going to be late. Gotta say it was nice to escape the heat of the valley and be at elevation. With all the trees (being at the end of a row) there was enough break for my sat to work - I DID hook up to the cable - but possibly can blame my TV never got to watch their CATV. We camped at Coachland RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Skyline Wilderness Park, Napa, California

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $35.00
Overall Rating:      

A good park. I was there for the max allowable time (14 days). Sites were well appointed (no fire pits, but Calif is still getting through the drought and potential fire damage). To be totally honest, I didn't do much of anything at the facility but the staff was great (even brought my expected package to my camper). We camped at Skyline Wilderness Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Not too far from town (road to campground needs paving) but in and out of town was very easy. Downtown area very pleasant and had relaxed feel. Nice river walk - about 40 min from Ferry to Frisco.

Wine Country RV Resort, Paso Robles, California

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $85.00
Overall Rating:      

Was stopping for a overnight while on the move (booked 2 nights - as like a little longer rest on the drive). California prices is the only thing I can say (am spoiled by years of work camping and housing allowances I guess). It was right on my route but still a way off the beaten path and I think pricey for the location. I stayed in the "new" section but was still a little tight getting the camper out of the pull thru. Sites could have been a little farther spaced but were well equipped. Alas didn't use any facilities - missed out on the happy hour. Another one that was a little hard on the wallet. We camped at Wine Country RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Santa Cruz Monterey Bay KOA, Watsonville, California

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $99.00
Overall Rating:      

Very nice park - nice family park. Yeah ! I know KOA can be expensive but for where it is - remote as it is - was really pricey at $1200 for 14 days (one night free - Mother's day) and that is with the KOA card discount. Well groomed sites, level and very clean. Staff was great - very helpful and attentive. To be honest - found the place while looking for workamper position- but decided to just visit and not work LOL. Just a little rough on the wallet. We camped at Santa Cruz Monterey Bay KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Desert Springs Spa RV Park, Desert Hot Springs, California

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $18.00
Overall Rating:      

This is great little park - out of the way - a really good place to lay low and do lots of nothing. The place changed hands and the promise of renovations and upgrade. Truth be told it does need some work. Some of the roads are really beaten. The spa/pool was nice but the bathroom could use some upgrading. I had a corner site so almost a private parking spot for my truck. Mgmt was great - hard working guy who was very friendly and helpful. Will keep it in mind when going back . We camped at Desert Springs Spa RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

On the outskirts of DHS and a good 15 miles to Palm Springs - Plenty to do in PS - check out the Cable Car - Most important - secure your awning- lots of wind there

Montgomery South RV Park, Hope Hull, Alabama

Date of Stay: October, 2014 - $26.00
Overall Rating:      

This is my second stop here - first time was Summer 2012. Both times just passing through. Both times really liked this place. Owner/staff very friendly - escorted on foot to site and it was nice being warned about the water pressure. Though I just hooked to the electric and passed on water and sewer (both times), this time I used the bath/shower. I inadvertently used the ADA room which was very spacious and comfortable, though there were no grab bars near the toilet. I was glad they were there in the shower as the soft water and soapy feet make it tricky for bare feet on the tile shower floor. This is a little gem tucked away almost out of sight of the highway, but well worth stopping even with the limited amenities. We camped at Montgomery South RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Spartanburg NE / Gaffney KOA, Gaffney, South Carolina

Date of Stay: January, 2013 - $44.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a nice park, really pleasing to see. Kudos to fellow Workamper s & KOA workers. Though I was doing a mad dash, cross country run and stayed just the one night: never even unhooked the truck and camper. I saw a prior review that mentioned sore repair of storm damage (?) and I think I must have been given one of the newer/repairs site. Nice level crushed stone site: possibly dedicated to the very short stay over. I could see the area where sites were more landscaped and "prettier," but like I said, I was here just to relax and sleep. The staff was very friendly and host offered to help with the set-up, until he realized I was done once I pulled in. A great looking place, and I hope to stay again when I have more time. We camped at Spartanburg NE / Gaffney KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Auburn RV Park at Leisure Time Campground, Auburn, Alabama

Date of Stay: January, 2013 - $36.00
Overall Rating:      

AGREE with the signage warning: it IS right off the interstate and the c/g sign is part of a smallish sign that points more to a parking lot than to any specific facility. Then you will drive around the perimeter of that parking lot to get to the c/g. The c/g itself is on a hill overlooking a major parking lot that mist be used for football season. I am not sure I agree with the "big rig" friendliness. Though the sites are a mix of pull through and back in, several of the corners were tight for my truck and 35' fiver. It was more "off season" and the office was closed when I arrived, but the registration process went well and I chose the upper most site which allowed me a quick get-a-way in the morning. CATV and WiFi worked well. The manager's wife brought me my receipt and WiFi code shortly after I had finished my limited set up. (I left truck and trailer connected.) All in all a good place for a overnighter on the road, or maybe a weekend for a game. We camped at Auburn RV Park at Leisure Time Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Tice Courts, Fort Myers, Florida

Date of Stay: February, 2012 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

Over all a nice place - Yes is is/was a mobile home park that is using blank sites for RVs and perimeter sites for RVs as well. The roads were narrow ans I was lucky to be at an intersection so I could maneuver my 35' fiver in to the site w/ ease. Manager & wife are great people and very friendly. The maintain man was there in an instant and trimmed a tree in no time, to keep it off the side & top of the camper. Hard to estimate the ratio of RVs to Mobile homes but there were quite a few RVs that looked to be setting down roots and soon to become a part of the place as well as the mobile homes (though mobile is hardly the term I'd use to describe them. Traffic noise to be expected being right off a 4+ lane main drag through town (an EMS - Fire station was in the nearby area). Very easy to reach the interstate, as well as cycle into the downtown and see the Edison/Ford estates for a good afternoon. Might use this again - will keep in mind - maybe to try for a work camper position one year. Though no WI-FI, my Verizon air card worked well. Cable TV was a service you have to arrange - not worth it for just a week. We camped at Tice Courts in a Fifth Wheel.

Big Cypress RV Park, Clewiston, Florida

Date of Stay: January, 2012 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a great park - very well appointed and tended. Am unsure of the actual age (neighbors said they had been coming "for years") but it looked very new. Some major work had been completed during the past summer which might contribute to the "new" look. The Wi-Fi was good but would drop off sometimes and each time it came back required you to sign back in (agreeing to the policies) which could be frustrating in the midst of surfing or viewing something online. The staff (and my neighbors) were very friendly and helpful. The BIGGEST drawback is the distance from the main roads. Snake (or Government) road was a bit bouncy and therefore rough on the interior of the camper - just allow 40 min to drive before you get to Alligator Alley - then another 35 miles to get to the western edge of Ft Laud. Still a GREAT place to "get away" to and still not be roughing it or dry camping. We camped at Big Cypress RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Happy Holiday RV Village (formerly Happy Holiday RV Park), Cherokee, North Carolina

Date of Stay: March, 2011 - $24.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a very nice park. The staff were very helpful and made light of booking people in though the campground wasn't "officially" opened for the year - so rate reflects the "non-seasonal" fee. Despite the area being a little soggy (a week of rain) I felt it deserved the high rating I gave it. The CATV was a little iffy but the staff stated a service call was expected the next day(s). There was plenty open places or clear views for my Sat TV to work. The WIFI was really great (free too). The place was laid out very well and the stream (river) "noise" was a perfect sound barrier to cover the traffic noise from the nearby road. They were looking for work campers at the time I was there, but was enroute to a position elsewhere. I will use this place again and suggest you should too. We camped at Happy Holiday RV Village (formerly Happy Holiday RV Park) in a Fifth Wheel.

Greensboro KOA, Greensboro, North Carolina

Date of Stay: November, 2010 - $12.00
Overall Rating:      

Have used and rated this park before. Will continue to use it as is very convenient when I need to be in town. Each time the place seems a little more tired and in need of more TLC. The WiFi is just a hotspot at the office area: though my VZ air card worked fine. I was here for 3 months so was put in the "back 40" where the long-termers were. Very "rustic" to put it politely, and again in need of a higher level of TLC (call it work). Staff has been and was very friendly and helpful. I can't blame them for the weather (stuck here over the winter and couldn't flee to the south). Haven't stayed at this place during the full growing season, so not quite sure how pretty it might be in summer. Dirt/gravel roads need work and brush clearing would help. Like I said TLC/WORK. Still a nice place and was here when I needed it. Rate reflects monthly rate of $350 plus electricity (about 125 a month and propane), which might have been high trying to keep warm. We camped at Greensboro KOA in a Fifth Wheel.
