We have been RVing for many years. We are both retired and getting in as many miles as we can before we have to hang up the keys.

McCall RV Resort, McCall, Idaho

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $52.00
Overall Rating:      

Beautiful resort. Spacious sites. Friendly staff. This is an exceptional resort. We came for 4 nights and ended up staying 2 weeks. Be sure to call for reservations because they stay booked. Since we had not called ahead, we ended up having to move to different sited, but the staff was great about finding us a place to move! We camped at McCall RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Gem State RV Park and Campground (formerly Mountain Home KOA), Mountain Home, Idaho

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $34.00
Overall Rating:      

Mostly full-timers with a few sites for overnight visitors. Sites were on grass. It was dry, so not a problem, but might not be good if it had rained. It was a few miles off the interstate but easy access through town. We camped at Gem State RV Park and Campground (formerly Mountain Home KOA) in a Motorhome.

We drove out to the State Park which was really nice. A friend suggested a visit to Silver City but time did not allow.

Solstice Motorcoach Resort, Mesquite, Nevada

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

This resort has such great potential. We have stayed several times since its opening. It is now under new ownership and hopefully be expanded. The location removed from town so is quite and peaceful and has a great view. It does need a little maintenance in the landscaping. We camped at Solstice Motorcoach Resort in a Motorhome.

Valley View RV Park, Ely, Nevada

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $29.00
Overall Rating:      

We just needed a place for the night and felt fortunate to find this park since others in the area were full. There were a few empty sites when we arrived, but by dark, they were full. It is an older park for full-timers and a few spots for overnighters. The sites are small and tight. Some sites are difficult to pull into because of trees. It was dusty, but served the purpose for the night. The young lady in the office was very pleasant. We camped at Valley View RV Park in a Motorhome.

Stella Mare RV Resort, Galveston, Texas

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a new RV Resort and not yet discovered by the crowds. It was still fairly open while the other places in the area were packed. This resort is not yet completed but first class all the way. There are wide concrete roads and sites with some grass between the sites. We had reservations. Entering the resort, you stop at a stop-sign, a park worker comes to your coach, gets your name and escorts you to your site---without ever getting out of the coach!!!!!!! We camped at Stella Mare RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Carlsbad KOA, Carlsbad, New Mexico

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $52.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a very clean park with nice large sites. There are several choices--from no patio to large patio. Price varies with site chosen. Very friendly staff. Meals, sandwiches, etc. can be ordered in the office to be delivered to your site. Very nice after a day of travel or sight-seeing. This RV park is located several miles from town so makes a bit of a drive for sight-seeing or shopping. Being out of town makes this a very quiet relaxing place to be. We camped at Carlsbad KOA in a Motorhome.

Midessa Oil Patch RV Park, Odessa, Texas

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $32.00
Overall Rating:      

I called for reservations and the lady was very friendly. When we checked in, the lady was nice and check in was very easy. Our site was adequate--but a little difficult in pulling out because of a car parked too near the street. We backed out without a problem. Streets were asphalt and the ones we drove on were in good condition. West Texas is dusty--so, just be prepared. This is a working man's campground. But, the sites that we saw were all neat and uncluttered. Our problem---it was very hot and the electric service was not adequate to keep up with so many rigs running the AC. We experienced low voltage and had to use our generator for about 4 hours. Otherwise, no problems with this rv park. We camped at Midessa Oil Patch RV Park in a Motorhome.

Pioneer Beach Resort, Port Aransas, Texas

Date of Stay: April, 2017 - $49.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed at Pioneer for several days with a rally. We were placed in a premium site. Many attendees were very dissatisfied. Our sites fee was included with our rally fee. Then the park staff comes around and puts stickers on everyone's rig stating that there was an additional $5/night charge over the contracted rate. Rally hall was ok--nothing special. We decided to stay a few days after the rally. When I went to the office the lady said the site was $60 something--I don't remember the amount. I commented that that was a little high. She very rudely said "take it or leave it--it does not matter to me"!!! So, we went back to the rig, hooked up, and left! Our site was spacious with some grass, but many of the sites here are very small and nothing but sand. We will not return to this park, and most of the rally attendees will also never return. We camped at Pioneer Beach Resort in a Motorhome.

Earp & James Hitching Post (formerly Lottie-Dell Campground), Snowville, Utah

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

A small, no-frills campground in a quiet rural setting. Pull through sites were adequate for a 42'MH towing--no need to unhook. The office is just a small (messy) room to fill out a registration form and put cash or check in an envelope and drop in the slot. A pleasant young teen came out to see if we needed anything. He said that his grandparents had bought the park and trying to get it cleaned up/fixed up. This is a great overnight stopping spot, easy off/on the highway--but just far away enough to avoid highway noise. There was one rig here when we arrived and another one came in a little later. We would not hesitate to stay here when passing through. We camped at Earp & James Hitching Post (formerly Lottie-Dell Campground) in a Motorhome.

Northshore RV Resort & Marina, Onalaska, Texas

Date of Stay: November, 2015 - $22.00
Overall Rating:      

Nightly rate shown is for a premium site with PassPort America Discount. This is our 4th visit to this lovely RV park. Since our last visit they have added a beautiful pool and splash pad for the kids. There are also Kayaks for rent to paddle around the lake. The sites are spacious with adequate grass between the sites. I did knock off a couple of stars--mainly because many of the sites are not level. The streets and pads are all concrete. The park is situated on a slight hill, and rather that level the sites, they just left them going down hill. None are as severe as the previous poster claimed (his tires were 4 feet off the ground, he stated!) Since our coach has air leveling and will not extend as far as some, I do ask for a level site when calling for reservations. We have never had a problem getting level. Over all, it is a lovely place and we always enjoy stopping and sitting out admiring the lake---even though the road noise does seem to amplify coming over the water. We camped at Northshore RV Resort & Marina in a Motorhome.

Buckhorn Lake Resort, Kerrville, Texas

Date of Stay: October, 2015 - $35.00
Overall Rating:      

We have had the pleasure of visiting here a few times through the years. Everything about the resort is excellent. If you have a large rally, the staff will cater the meals. They are always excellent. Verizon signal is a bit weak, but that is not a fault of the resort. We camped at Buckhorn Lake Resort in a Motorhome.

Lake Medina RV Resort, Lakehills, Texas

Date of Stay: August, 2014 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

An older family friendly park. Owner is awesome! Talk to the office for directions, as it your GPS will not be accurate. You first trip in you will wonder where in the world you are going, but after the first time, it is fine! LOL This is not a park for an overnight stop. Lake is dry due to lack of rain in Texas the past few years but the park is still a nice quite place to hang out for a few days. We camped at Lake Medina RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Rocky Top RV Park (formerly Iraan City Park), Iraan, Texas

Date of Stay: October, 2012 - $12.00
Overall Rating:      

Park is now called "Rocky Top". We just happened to see it from the highway as we drove into town. It is very clean and perfect for an overnight stop. The sites are huge enough that hopefully plans are to add more sites. There are no facilities, restrooms, etc. Pay is on the honor system, an envelope at a little pay station. It appears that most people there are workers in the area. We took the last available site. This will definitely be a place for an overnight stop for us. We camped at Rocky Top RV Park (formerly Iraan City Park) in a Motorhome.

Dad's R. V. Park, Victoria, Texas

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

I have stayed at Dad's many times through the years. It is a friendly, comfortable, and convenient place to stay. At this time, because of a lot of construction in Victoria, most parks are full and overflowing. This visit, it was necessary to park in overflow parking--but, even so, we had full hookups. If you need to be there for a week or more, call ahead and every effort will be made to get you in a regular site. They have a very nice club house for rallies and there are some activities planned during the winter. Dad's is a safe and secure park without the frills. We camped at Dad's R. V. Park in a Motorhome.

Long Island Village, Port Isabel, Texas

Date of Stay: March, 2012 - $48.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a difficult park to rate. We did not enjoy it, but it was, for the most part, neat, clean and had amenities that many will find attractive. We were excited when I stumbled across the website for Long Island. I wish I had read it more carefully. This is NOT an RV resort. It is a park model community. If an owner has an unimproved lot, it can be put in a rental pool for RVs. So, we were parked in along with the multitude of park model/permanent residents. Some sites are on a canal, but they are not available in the rental pool To us, part of the fun of RVing is visiting with other RVers, so this could not happen in this instance. Check in was slow, the young lady in the office could care less if we were there or not. I had to ask for a map of the area to be able to find our site. The site was large enough with fairly decent grass. Your unit must be self contained since there are not restroom facilities available. My husband walked across to the golf course and said it was in really bad shape, so we did not play. We saw lots of others playing while we were there. It would probably be a great place to live, but it is not what we look for in an RV resort. It is a very secure park with a guard at the gate at all times. We were told that Long Island was formerly affiliated with the Outdoor Resort Parks. It must have been decades ago because it is nothing like the OR Is that we are familiar with. It was a very disappointing and expensive week. Actually, we paid for a week and left after 5 days. We normally avoid the KOA parks, but there is one located across the causeway that would have been much better choice for us. We will not return. We camped at Long Island Village in a Motorhome.
