Steamboat Park Campground, Jenison, Michigan

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $43.00
Overall Rating:

It is right next to a very small airport, but it is small enough that noise was never an issue. Even with the close proximity to civilization, it still has that peaceful remote feel. The campground is situated right on the Grand River. They even have a huge riverboat, but unfortunately it had just shut down for the season so we didn't get a chance to ride it. The sites are very spacious and level. The entire campground was very well maintained and everyone we encountered was pleasant. When we arrived and started to level our 5er, we began to have a problem with our front left jack. It wouldn't move more than 4 inches. We were able to manually level the camper for our stay, but dreaded trying to get it back on the truck. When it came time to leave, I was struggling with the jack and a nice couple dropped by to chat. We discussed several things, including the jack problems, and they suggested reaching out to the campground owner for help. As it turns out, after they left, they must have told him about us, as he showed up minutes later offering to help. He ended up getting a forklift to help take some pressure off the problem jack so it could raise us up high enough. We really don't know what we would have done without him. Even the RV technician who had come out didn't have any suggestions for hooking it up (the part wouldn't arrive in time). We will definitely return to this beautiful campground next year! We camped at Steamboat Park Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This campground is very close to everything you might need. There is a Meijer (a regional big box store similar to Walmart) and several restaurants just down the road.

The Flintstones Bedrock City Campground, Williams, Arizona

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

We were planning to visit Grand Canyon and this place is really close. We were thrilled to find something this close at a reasonable price... until we showed up. This place was just a dirt parking lot with some water and electric hook-ups. We were directed to the pull-thru sites and were told that the electricity in site G wasn't working. We chose the site next to it so we could let the kids play out front without worrying about someone pulling into that site. Shortly after we got set up, someone arrived to work on the electricity in site G. They pulled their pickup truck onto our site, just outside our front door and under our awning. One of them sat inside the truck smoking a cigarette, so we had to close our door and windows. While they were out there, and since we had to close the door and windows, we turned on our A/C, and popped the breaker. I reset it and tried again with the same result. The only things running were the A/C and refrigerator. This had never been a problem in a 30 amp site. I went outside and explained to the guy outside that I was unable to run my A/C and asked if maybe they were having general trouble with the electricity. He seemed insulted and said the electricity was good and that it must be my RV. I responded that we had used it several times (we are full-timers) without problems. He insisted that it was my problem and not his. He even offered to go grab his testing equipment to see how many amps I was drawing. I agreed, and he never returned. The gift shop was in poor repair. A lot of the items, including food items, appeared to have been wet previously, maybe from a roof leak. The whole place was just run-down and in desperate need of updating. There is what they call a theme park. They charge $5 per person. A quick peek over the gate led us to believe it was in the same state of disrepair as the rest of the place, so we didn't waste our money. Overall, its a great location, but not so great park. We camped at The Flintstones Bedrock City Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

The one positive thing about this place is it's proximity to Grand Canyon National Park. Also, there is a gas station across the street with some cool things for sale and a few nice classic cars on display outside.

Butterfield RV Resort & Observatory, Benson, Arizona

Date of Stay: February, 2017 - $39.00
Overall Rating:

The sites are paved or gravel and were just long enough for our 42 foot 5th wheel. The area between the sites was very small, and the picnic tables are 2/3 size. The office staff stated that they did not help or answer phone calls in the 15 minutes before closing because they are always busy with other things. A train and/or a helicopter goes by every 20 minutes all night long. IF the observatory is open, it opens at exactly 7pm for 16 predesignated people only, and you must be there 30 minutes early. If you want to sign up to view, you'd better get into the office before 5:45pm or be ignored. We had four people in our party, two of which were kids, and were charged a premium for the seven year old but not the five year old. The Passport America discount is not half off. We camped at Butterfield RV Resort & Observatory in a Fifth Wheel.

Lavonia COE, Lavon, Texas

Date of Stay: January, 2017 - $15.00
Overall Rating:

Upon arriving, we drove up to the entry gate and confirmed our reservation and showed our America the Beautiful access pass. We were given our window pass and directions to our site. It was easy enough to find, and easy to get into. There were about a dozen other campers there, but we didn't see them much. It was pretty cold out so, like us, they were probably inside when not away. The lake was nice looking, and we could see it out our back window. The sites are sloped. We were fortunate that the one we reserved was sloped so our front was low to the ground. Others were sloped the other way. The direction of slope throughout the park seemed to be pretty random. We camped at Lavonia COE in a Fifth Wheel.

Copper Breaks State Park, Quanah, Texas

Date of Stay: January, 2017 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

We stopped here for an overnight on our way west. We called ahead of time, and were told the office closes at 4:30 pm, but were told that if we arrive after hours we could just find a site and pay in the morning before we leave. We ended up arriving at about 4:25, as she was getting ready to close. She was more than happy to help, and even offered to stay late so we could check out the museum... Yes, there is a museum at the welcome building! We declined her most gracious offer, and ended up not making it to the museum in the morning. We stayed in the Comanche loop, which offered water and electric. The only other campers there were the camp hosts, who were very friendly and fun to talk to. The scenery was great. There were several look out points and you could see an abundance of rock formations. The stars at night were phenomenal!!! We very strongly considered staying longer to give us time to explore a little, but we were on somewhat of a schedule. When we find ourselves coming through here again, we will certainly return and allow more time to stay and enjoy it! We camped at Copper Breaks State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

AOK Camper Park, Amarillo, Texas

Date of Stay: January, 2017 - $13.00
Overall Rating:

When we called to check same day availability, our call was answered. We were told there was plenty of room. We were given instructions to just come in and pick a spot. We were told to just take an envelope from the mail box, put our payment in it, and put it through the mail slot. There was no face-to-face interaction. A little odd to us, but easy enough. When we arrived, we drove to look at all the available spots. They were all pull through and 50 amp FHU; a great value for $12.50 (Passport America discount). A lot of them had large ruts in them. We picked which was mostly clear and level. The downside: large piles of dog poop everywhere! We have 2 kids, and there was so much poop on both sides of out 5th wheel, we couldn't let them play outside. There was no handle on the water spigot, so we had to use pliers to turn it on and off. The sites weren't uncomfortably close, but the sewer for your neighbor is right outside your door... Overall, it remains a great value if you are passing through and just need a place to stay for the night. With the interstate traffic, trains, etc., I would not have wanted to stay more than one night We camped at AOK Camper Park in a Fifth Wheel.

The Big Texan is close. Great food and a good selection of hand crafted beers. Call them and they will come pick you up in a limo! If only we had known this ahead of time...
