Camp Coeur D'Alene, Coeur d'Alene, Idaho

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $44.00
Overall Rating:

This campground and RV park has great promise and some special amenities, but it has some real deficiencies and needs overall attention to maintenance. The setting is lovely, with hillside sites shaded and cooled by huge pine trees, all above a small lagoon that is connected through channels to the beautiful Lake Coeur d'Alene. One canoe and two paddleboats are available at no charge. The hillside sites are ideal for tents, campers and small RVs but really too small for larger rigs and trailers with tow vehicles. However, there are some major deficiencies, beginning with water pressure, particularly as you get higher up the hillside. With the camp full on a Sunday morning, there was NO water at the upper bathroom/shower facility and the upper-level campsites. This condition lasted a few hours and is a common occurrence, according to other campers. Additionally ... the pool is closed and apparently has been awaiting repairs for a long time; walkways around the office are unfinished and anything but accessible; bathroom and shower facilities are uninviting and not well maintained - in the men's facility one of three showers and the only urinal were broken the day we arrived. There is no dump station. In addition to the big things above, the entire facility just needs maintenance attention - bathrooms and dishwashing facilities cleaned more often, exposed electrical wiring covered, etc. With all that said, we enjoyed a three-night stay, working around the problems noted above. We would consider staying here again, but would love to see the problems 'fixed' so this park could be all it should be. We paid $44 for one night a full-hookup site, and $28 for 2 nights at a site with electric and water only. We camped at Camp Coeur D'Alene in a Motorhome.

Big Pine Campground, Custer, South Dakota

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

This is a nice park in an area littered with RV parks. It is situated on a hillside, with sites scattered among tall pine trees that provide welcome relief from summer heat. We spent two nights in a 19-foot motorhome in mid-July; the rate for 30 amp and water was $39/night. The entry road and sites are gravel and well-maintained; sites are reasonably level and large enough. Most RVs are small or mid-size with fewer big rigs than usual, and there is a separate area for tent campers. It was surprisingly quiet on Friday and Saturday nights, even though nearly full. The restrooms and showers are spacious and immaculately clean, and there is a dishwashing station at the restroom facility. There is a nice camp store at the office and managers are friendly and helpful. My complaints are very minor. Our site was graveled where we parked, but the area around the table and fire ring was bare ground and dusty - a little more gravel or mulch would be welcome. And there could be more trash and recycling cans around the park. WiFi, as at most parks, is a bit sketchy ... but that's about it. I give it a B+/A- rating. The reason I do not give it the highest rating is the lack of certain facilities found at A/A+ parks: laundry facilities, pool or hot tub, rec room, etc. ... but a place I would be happy to stay again. We camped at Big Pine Campground in a Motorhome.

Pikes Peak RV Park, Manitou Springs, Colorado

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $38.00
Overall Rating:

This park is in a wonderful natural setting that, regrettably, is in the middle of a major tourist area. So you have soaring trees, a rushing mountain stream, and views of the mountains alongside a busy highway lined with motels, eateries and gift shops of all descriptions. As others have noted, the spaces are VERY close together. This is not a park where you come to hang out and enjoy nature, but it is a very acceptable place to overnight while seeing the sights of the spectacular region. To add our 2 cents ... we found all the staff VERY friendly and accommodating. Our site was closest to the highway, but noise was not a problem due, in part, to the white noise of the rushing stream right behind our motor home. And the restrooms and showers are as nice as any we have ever encountered. We will stay here again if we return to the area. We camped at Pikes Peak RV Park in a Motorhome.

Palo Duro Canyon State Park, Canyon, Texas

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

Concur with other reviewers - this is a quality nature experience. If you want to wake up in a beautiful setting with birds singing and deer and turkeys wandering about, this is a great spot. Cool at night but blazing hot during the day. We stayed on the Hackberry Loop which has 40 or so sites for RVs and tents, along with a restroom with showers. The sites are well spaced, from about 25 yards to more than 50 yards apart. The road is paved and the sites are asphalt, the other areas are grassed, but the grass is sparse and can be dusty. The spacing is especially nice for tent campers who don't want to end up next to an RV running its generator and AC all night. Restrooms and showers show their age but were clean and quite adequate. We camped at Palo Duro Canyon State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Canyon, Texas, is a nice little town, convenient to the park, with a few good spots to eat, a university, and the very nice Panhandle Plains Historical Museum. We enjoyed dinner at Feldman's Wrong Way Diner.

Lady Bird Johnson Municipal Park, Fredericksburg, Texas

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

I concur with most of the reviews posted for this park. I will add just a few comments. (1) Overall it's a nice park, relaxing and peaceful in spite of the small-plane airport nextdoor. (2) While there are lots of trees, the canopy is rather sparse and many spaces in full sun or near-full sun. So be aware if you are there in the hot summertime. (3) This is a city park so it has lots of amenities including a golf course and swimming pool, but with few exceptions, the pool is open only during the summer school vacation. (4) One amenity not mentioned by others is a small but lovely and well cared-for flower garden, with local wildflowers designed to encourage honey bees, butterflies and other pollinators. (5) For a park with so many amenities, there are no grills or fire rings. (6) I have stayed here three times -- all at the end of April -- and found occupants to be friendly and respectful good neighbors. We camped at Lady Bird Johnson Municipal Park in a Motorhome.

Shore Hills Campground and RV Park, Boothbay, Maine

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $44.00
Overall Rating:

This was the best RV park I encountered on a road trip from Texas to Maine and back! Helpful and friendly staff, nice campsites among the trees, just off the highway but without significant traffic noise, and just 3 miles from Boothbay Harbor. They even operate a free shuttle into Boothbay Harbor. The facilities were very good, including a 'rec room' with good live music on Saturday night! If I am ever in the area again, this will definitely be home base. We camped at Shore Hills Campground and RV Park in a Motorhome.

Sweetwater Forest Family Camping Resort, Brewster, Massachusetts

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $50.00
Overall Rating:

This is a large, family-owned campground nestled among the hills and trees. It is centrally located on Cape Cod. The office and camp store are well equipped and staffed. It has some facilities and events for kids and families, though I did not use these.

The campsites are rather artfully placed among the trees and hills. Even though they are rather close together, they don't feel crowded. I really liked my site on Loop C. Facilities were above average, restrooms very clean and roomy.

All in all, this is a great campground. My only real annoyance is the half-mile or so of bumpy gravel road at the entrance. I also wish they had laundry facilities. I recommend this facility to others and will return if ever in the area again. We camped at Sweetwater Forest Family Camping Resort in a Motorhome.

Pine Cove Beach Resort, Charleroi, Pennsylvania

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

This is an unusual place: a large water park in conjunction with an RV park. I used the RV park just for an overnight in the course of a long road trip. I did not use the water park so cannot comment on it (though it looked inviting!).

The RV area is a large, flat terrace above the water park with a pretty river flowing below. While in a beautiful setting, the campground area is virtually treeless and nondescript. It is a good place for an overnight only, or to camp while enjoying the water park, but I don't see it as much more than that ... and $45 is a little steep for an overnight. (The price including the water park is higher.) We camped at Pine Cove Beach Resort in a Motorhome.

Paradise in the Woods RV Park, Strafford, Missouri

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

On the good side, the staff was friendly, the pool looked clean and inviting (though I did not swim) and the laundry room had lots of equipment and looked clean. And it is more or less surrounded by 'the woods.'

On the other hand ... the look and feel of the place is hardly 'paradise,' but rather that of a small park that is maintained at barely acceptable levels. That laundry room, for example, had five 'air fresheners', the 'community room' behind it had three and furnishings looked like garage-sale items. The bathroom was clean, it seemed, but very old cinder-block construction, with mortar missing in many places leaving large gaps between the blocks. All in all, it seemed clean but far from inviting.

Many campsites had NO amenities such as picnic tables, fire rings, grills. I was there just sleeping over while passing through, so I did not miss the amenities, but I certainly would not consider a longer stay and would return only as a last resort. In school grades, I give Paradise in the Woods a C-, barely passing. We camped at Paradise in the Woods RV Park in a Motorhome.
