Wellington KOA, Wellington, Kansas

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $37.00
Overall Rating:      

The RV park was nothing to write home about, rather usual in features and enjoyable parts of the park but the effective help I received from the agent in charge at a rather late time in the day was really what allows me to value this park as highly -- customer service. She helped me retrieve some extra storm debris from the roof of our RV using a ladder stored at her rig in the park. This service was beyond the normal expected help. The park had some premium sites so others paid higher prices. We camped at Wellington KOA in a Motorhome.

Alexandria Shooting Park and RV Campground, Alexandria, Minnesota

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

While visiting friends and needing RV repairs we used this park which has only about 10 really level sites. It is an RV park within a popular shooting range but there was very little shooting of clay pigeons while we were there - mostly between 4 to 9 pm. Our site was level with 50 amp and water but we did not use any dump station although it was on the property. We camped at Alexandria Shooting Park and RV Campground in a Motorhome.

Pine Grove RV Park and Campground, Greenwood, Nebraska

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

We arrived late in the afternoon a few days before the 2017 total eclipse and certainly some were staying for the event - we were moving each day so we enjoyed the area for one day only. The owners are retired military and dedicated to supporting the active military or veterans. The grounds were meticulously cared for and many US flags were evident. There was a large area dedicated to almost every sport activity one could imagine - volleyball, basketball, tennis court, pool and multiple recreation devices for children. The sites were reasonably level with good foliage. We camped at Pine Grove RV Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

Chattanooga North / Cleveland KOA, Cleveland, Tennessee

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

The staff and surroundings were very nice and he noise level was rather minimal because the park was set back away from the highway enough and the abundance of tree foliage helped dampen any sound. We would come back again if we get a level spot - some spots are somewhat difficult to find a level area if your RV unit is over 30 ft in length. We camped at Chattanooga North / Cleveland KOA in a Motorhome.

Valdosta Oaks RV Park, Valdosta, Georgia

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

The most obvious issue is the terribly slanted sites. Yes, we could barely level our RV but this place is NOT worth $5 so I suggest entering a spot which has better facilities. There is virtually no shade and the electric and water services are barely adequate.Don't use this RV park! Mostly full-time RV's here - not worth the dollars! We camped at Valdosta Oaks RV Park in a Motorhome.

Nashville I-24 Campground, Smyrna, Tennessee

Date of Stay: November, 2016 - $42.00
Overall Rating:      

This was self-described as an "urban campground" and that is very accurate. Most of the residents are longterm folks and their RV's have not been moved in moths or years. The park offered hookups in almost every nook and cranny of the property at odd angles with very circuitous routes in the campground. We truly needed a guide to find our spot. The helpers were courteous and helpful but the park is really only for spending the night sleeping while enjoying all that Nashville offers. We camped at Nashville I-24 Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Nashville has all the sites you might want to enjoy but the RV park is very busy and barely acceptable and one cannot really enjoy just spending a day relaxing at your site. We will come back and use this park only in an emergency situation -it was not like we wanted but was only a practical place to put our RV during our visit to Nashville and visit our friends about 40 miles away.

River Town Campground, Vicksburg, Mississippi

Date of Stay: November, 2016 - $32.00
Overall Rating:      

The park is about 4 miles south of Vicksburg with a somewhat circuitous arrival route necessitated because it was located on a boulevard roadway which requires one to make a crossover turn to enter the park which has a slight upgrade to reach the office.

The grounds are as described in their website with wide, well spaced gravel sites withe many pull-through opportunities and some trees. The grounds are open and clean with minimal nearby road noise. While it is within one mile of the local airport the arrival/departure route is not over the park and offers little noise impact.

The owners are a couple who are very attentive to any cleaning which is required and they both are very pleasant and helpful regarding local tourist opportunities. They even suggested a top local restaurant which we enjoyed because it offered outstanding local type food options. We camped at River Town Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

You should try the Walnut Hill restaurant in Vicksburg which offer a unique option to get a meal at the "roundtable" which offers meal like family style meals at home. The National Military Park run by the NPS is truly outstanding and should be seen by all Americans who want to learn about the true cost of the Civil War and is a must for all true historians.

We enjoyed the Columbus Day weekend with many seasonal folks and while there was some rain all members of the crowd enjoyed a costume party, crowd singing and a family-oriented meal with considerable attendance. We camped at Ferenbaugh Campsites in a Fifth Wheel.

Golden Pond RV Resort, Mossley, Ontario

Date of Stay: October, 2016 - $42.00
Overall Rating:      

This park was not far from the main roads but it was clearly not a park which was up-to-date in modern terms. The WIFI was not acceptable and the TV reception via cable was barely adequate. The majority of the residents in this park were full timers but it was clean and adequate. We camped at Golden Pond RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Hidden Ridge RV Resort, Hopkins, Michigan

Date of Stay: October, 2016 - $42.00
Overall Rating:      

We arrived late in the day but were received with concern about our travel and joy we made it before dark developed. While we were not escorted to our site it was quite easy to get to the proper spot. We stayed there three nights and were pleased with the cleanliness of the entire park. Obviously many folks were there for the seasonal parts of the summer/fall which allowed them to return after their work week. We arrived on a Friday and left on a Tuesday so we had no noise factor to interrupt our stay. We camped at Hidden Ridge RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Double J Campground and RV Park, Chatham, Illinois

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $42.00
Overall Rating:      

We decided on this park because it was some distance away from Springfield and we wanted a more quiet environment. As we arrived we requested a site away from the nearest highway and we found the owner made an extra effort to find the best spot. There were a limited number of RV's in the park so we were able to enjoy the environment without excessive noise from the highway or noisy neighbors. We camped at Double J Campground and RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

All Seasons RV Park, Goddard, Kansas

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $33.00
Overall Rating:      

We arrived about 6 pm and were directed to our site and connected our unit without difficulty. We noticed about 90% of the RV units were occupied by residents who were there for work related in the surrounding areas. While most sites were clean it was apparent that many of the units had not been relocated in many months. Our next door neighbor was absent but left his HVAC unit running most of the night in the heating mode and it was less than 5 feet from our bedroom window. We camped at All Seasons RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
