Elephant Butte Lake RV Resort, Elephant Butte, New Mexico

Date of Stay: October, 2018 - $46.00
Overall Rating:

Lodgers and sales taxes add about $6 extra dollars to the rate. Check your receipt for accurate billing. I was in an upper level back in space and I just looked at my receipt and the rate I was charged is for an upper level pull through space, according to the Site Rental Rate Schedule I was given. I should have checked it while I was there. There were pull through sites available directly across from my space but I was directed to a back in space. Rates vary through the year depending on when you stay. I stayed two nights due to high winds on the day I was to leave and park staff accommodated the unexpected extra day. Despite what I believe was a billing error, Park personnel are very nice and helpful. Park is very clean with paved roads on the upper section where I stayed. Spaces are level gravel and the utilities are nicely situated mid site. Some sites were paved concrete but appeared to be occupied by long term. Large beautiful enclosed pool/spa area. Large meeting room across from pool. Restrooms/laundry on both upper and lower levels. Rec room/game room on the lower level. Two dog run areas, one very small and one literally huge. No fire rings or picnic tables at sites. Free wifi (did not use as I have a hot spot) and cable TV although TV requires a cable box available from the office. OTA TV reception was good with several stations. Verizon signal was good. We camped at Elephant Butte Lake RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Chatfield State Park, Littleton, Colorado

Date of Stay: October, 2018 - $33.00
Overall Rating:

Price reflects camping only. There is also a daily access for of $8. Annual passes are available to cover the daily fee if you are a frequent state park camper. I have a lifetime pass that I paid a lot for but they refused to honor it because circumstances caused me to move out of state. I was disappointed that apparently lifetime does not really mean lifetime so my camping really cost me $41 per day. Check in was a little chaotic as numerous campers arrived at about the same time with only one check in station. That being said, the park is very nice with plenty of space between camping sites. OTA TV produced numerous channels. Can pick up Wi-Fi near the restroom facilities. Interior roads are blacktop and sites are level concrete slabs. Picnic table on small patio and fire ring at each site. Sites are cleaned by campground host after each departure. We camped at Chatfield State Park in a Motorhome.

There is an adjacent model airplane flying area that is interesting to watch and talk with the "pilots". Easy to get to all the Denver attractions. Also an easy one hour drive to Boulder for the Pearl Street Mall. Check out Liberty Puzzles if you go to Boulder. They give M-F plant tours (10-4) of their wooden jigsaw puzzle plant.

Goodland KOA, Goodland, Kansas

Date of Stay: October, 2018 - $44.00
Overall Rating:

Pretty much your typical KOA. Very clean, both grounds and facilities. Easy to find from I-70 exit 19. Quick and efficient check in by the owner. Interior roads and sites are crushed gravel. Picnic table at each site. Campfires not allowed due to city ordinance. Free digital cable TV. Use your remote for on/off and volume. Use their remote for channel selection. Crystal clear pictures. Did not try for OTA TV. Free Wi-Fi. Verizon signal okay for phone and Internet. Pool which was closed for the season. Nice playground for kids. Small pet run with pick up bags provided. We camped at Goodland KOA in a Motorhome.

Milford State Park, Milford, Kansas

Date of Stay: October, 2018 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

Price indicated is for camping only at full hook-up site. There is an extra $5 per day per vehicle use fee. This includes any towed vehicle even if you do not drive it in the park so to camp one night cost a total of $35 because I was towing a car. Office told me it was a state ordinance. If you are coming from Interstate 70 there are no signs indicating you are headed toward the park until you get to Park Road so have faith and trust your GPS to get you there. Like most state parks the spaces are roomy although some are literally side by side sharing a common hook-up area. Several sites have the hook-ups on the wrong side. Reservations on-line must be made at least 2 days in advance. Sites with 50 AMP service (Eagle Ridge) are all in the equestrian area (stable, etc. and associated flies and smells) and are all back-in. Perhaps the sites with utilities on the wrong side could be considered pull-in sites although they are shown as back-in on reservation site. 30 amp area has both back-in and pull through sites. Nice view of the lake. Eagle Ridge is a nice set up for equestrian activities. A trail ride group was scheduled to come in shortly after we left. We camped at Milford State Park in a Motorhome.

RV Express RV Park, Marshfield, Missouri

Date of Stay: October, 2018 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

Nice no frills park with 8 back in and 7 pull through sites. Next to the Interstate on-ramp but the noise is tolerable for an overnight stop. Sites are level concrete pads with asphalt interior road. Narrow grass area between pull through sites. Grass area between park and interstate on-ramp to walk dogs. Pick up bags provided. One covered picnic table near the office for the whole park. No overnight on sight manager. They come by about 8 AM as folks are leaving and return about 4 PM as travelers arrive, leaving for the night around 8 PM. Phone number is posted on the office door. Clean restroom/laundry/office is door combination locked over night. Combination given to you at check in. Free Wi-Fi and cable TV. Wi-Fi worked okay but cable came in garbled and not near the number of channels indicated on the provided line up. Might have just been my site (13) as hookup was short on threaded connection. OTA TV was okay for several channels. Good Verizon signal. We camped at RV Express RV Park in a Motorhome.

Piney Campground, Land Between the Lakes NRA, Dover, Tennessee

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $34.00
Overall Rating:

Rate reflects a 15% discount for Senior Pass holder. Normal rate is $40 per night. Sites vary from rustic to full hookup. When you reserve on line it appears that the park is very busy. This is because in addition to reservations there are many "walk up" sites for arrivals with no reservations as well as numerous "seasonal" sites where people camp for 2-9 months at a time in a single site. Sites are packed gravel and vary from level to slopes, front to back and or side to side. Sites also vary in length. Some sites have a slope down into the site as they are below road level. If you are unsure about a site when you are making a reservation you can call to find out more information. I parked in a site marked as 26 feet with a 40 foot rig and was just fine with some side to side leveling. In some sites that would not have been the case. Sites have a picnic table, fire ring and lantern post. OTA TV brings in one station. Satellite TV will depend on site and equipment as area is heavily wooded. Verizon signal was 2 bars but worked for Internet and phone. Small camp store with some essentials but if you can come with all you'll need for your stay that is a more economical choice. Interior roads are paved. There are hiking trails indicated on the park map but there are no signs indicating their names or starting points nor are there any trail head parking areas. Park is very quiet at night. We camped at Piney Campground, Land Between the Lakes NRA in a Motorhome.

Tom Sawyer's Mississippi River Park, West Memphis, Arkansas

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

Reservations recommended as park was still completely full in late September. Park is right next to the river. Escort to your site. The park is divided into three areas. Sites vary from full sun to partial shade to full shade depending on your site. If you want to be near the river you can expect partial shade from mature trees in one part of the park and full sun in the other. Some sites have concrete pads while most sites are crushed gravel. Sites are reasonably level. Free cable TV and wifi. Both worked well. Verizon signal was only 2 bars but worked for Internet and phone. Interior roads are a little narrow but doable with a big rig. We camped at Tom Sawyer's Mississippi River Park in a Motorhome.

Texarkana RV Park & Event Center, Texarkana, Texas

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

Very clean park. Restrooms/showers are very clean and large. Laundry has 4 each washers and dryers, dog run area is pretty small, about 25x25. Spaces are level on crushed gravel and are long with small patio. Interior roads are paved concrete. Downside is that pull through spaces are very close. About 2 feet between my slide out and neighbor's truck. Nice pond in the middle of the park. Small pool near the office. Entrance gate is locked 24/7 but is opened by office as you enter. I stayed one night but longer term stays use a remote for entry. OTA TV is minimal but free cable TV is fine. Free internet worked well. Verizon signal is only 2 bars but okay for Internet and phone. 4 cabins for rent in addition to camper sites. We camped at Texarkana RV Park & Event Center in a Motorhome.

Lake Corpus Christi State Park, Mathis, Texas

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

Rate reflects having a TX State Parks Pass to waive the daily access fee. Nice older state park. The Javelina loop is full hookup, 30/50 amp. The sites are all pull through although some could be a little tight for larger rigs. The concrete slabs are fairly level but short, about 25 feet but extended on each end with entry/exit asphalt so leveling can still be accomplished without issues. Power was steady as was water pressure. Sewer hookups are a little high so some sort of hose elevation system helps. Covered picnic table was a nice touch although not all sites are covered. All sites do have a concrete slab for the table. Fire ring/grill combination. OTA TV picked up numerous stations. Verizon signal was adequate for Internet access. Also have electric/water sites and water only sites each costing less accordingly. Lake has fishing piers and non motorized craft rentals. Several hiking trails, one leading to a bird blind. Old CCC building was interesting to see. A couple negatives: first, the abundance of ants of all sizes. They try to climb up your water and electrical lines to gain access to your rig. We sprayed for them and did not have any invaders. Also the restroom/showers could use a good cleaning. Lots of accumulated dust on the light fixtures, dirty floors and crickets and spiders. Lights are photo sensitive and I had trouble getting to recognize my presence after dark, making it a very dark experience. We camped at Lake Corpus Christi State Park in a Motorhome.

Lake Casa Blanca Intl. State Park, Laredo, Texas

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $21.00
Overall Rating:

Campground is 1.5 miles from the entrance station. There is a dumpster for about every 10 campsites but many chooses not to use them for small items like bottles, bottle caps and soda cans. Lots of little trash everywhere: in the sites and along the roads. That being said, the setting is pretty. Getting into the park is tricky with access only going north on the highway. If you are coming from the south you need to pass by and come back from the next intersection. Leaving has the same issue as you can only exit to the north. Registering for a site on line does not allow you to select a full hookup site but when you arrive, you can see if a full hookup site is available. Some sites have a lake view. Covered picnic table on concrete pad, grill and lantern post. Verizon signal was strong. OTA TV picked up quite a few channels, many in Spanish. Can be a bit of a hike to restroom from some sites. Interior roads are asphalt as are the sites. Quiet at night. We camped at Lake Casa Blanca Intl. State Park in a Motorhome.

Broke Mill RV Park, Del Rio, Texas

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $33.00
Overall Rating:

Nice clean park right next to the highway with associated traffic noise during the day but quiet at night. Long level sites were packed gravel with small grass areas between, trees and shrubs provide some privacy from your neighbors. Brochure shows digital cable TV but also require a proprietary converter from a local provider thus for short term stays you gon't get cable. OTA TV picked up several channels, most in Spanish. Verizon signal good. Pool looked clean. Interior roads are asphalt. Utilities worked well but were near the rear of the site so required long hookups. Two small negatives: only one dumpster site near the exit and only one way to exit the interior of the park so turning to exit from pull through sites 3-5 can be very tight due to proximity to event center. We camped at Broke Mill RV Park in a Motorhome.

Davis Mountains State Park, Fort Davis, Texas

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

Longer Motorhomes note that the sites 18-27 do not allow you to get fully level. Sites 1-16 appeared to be more level. Used three blocks under each front jack which made for a long step down and still was not completely level. Utilities are located mid site but the sewer connection is so high that it is almost useless. Only worked by allowing sewer hose to remain constantly full up to my outlet pipe. Yes, there is cable TV but the connection is on the opposite side of the pad thus requiring a long cable. Covers over picnic tables are nice. Large grassy area between sites. Fire pit with BBQ grate but burn ban was in effect when we were there. Verizon was no service until you head toward Ft. Davis on TX118. We camped at Davis Mountains State Park in a Motorhome.

This is an older park that has many of it's spaces occupied by long term residents. Spaces were tidy for the most part though as is the general appearance of the park. I was in the back row so I did not experience road noise as mentioned in other reviews. Nice grass areas between the spaces with a picnic table. Most sites appear to have some shade. Free wifi and limited station cable TV. All sites have 50/30/20 AMP service. Interior roads are packed gravel. Park was very quiet at night for my one night stay mid week.

USA RV Park, Gallup, New Mexico

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

Price shown reflects base daily rate for a weekly stay. Add a surcharge of $2 per day each for optional cable TV and 50 amp electric. Very clean well cared for park with all the amenities: pool, dog park, free WiFi, playground, camp/gift store, book and video exchange, propane, dump station, laundry and Cowboy Cookout in the summer months (separately priced menu items). A mixture of water and electric and full hookup sites. Sites are mostly level with alternate facing directions so that utilities are always between the non-door sides of the RV's. Sites, all pull through, can feel a little cramped when the campground is full with about 4 feet between extended slides on one side and 12 or more feet on the non utility sides. Interior roads are paved. Two bath house/laundry locations. Four camp cabins. Verizon had a good signal. Located on eastern edge of Gallup but a quick drive to town on Historic US 66. We camped at USA RV Park in a Motorhome.

Rate stated is based on weekly rate. Daily rate for water & electric is $30. Nice dump station. Dry camp rate is $10. Most sites are 30 amp with random 50 amp sites. Security patrol at night. Five different camp areas. Area 1 is a paved parking lot. Areas 2-5 are gravel. All sites are reasonably level. All sites are back in but when we were there we were allowed to park parallel to the fence as we were the only one there most of the nights. Next to a casino so there was some noise on weekend nights. Otherwise very quiet at night. We camped at San Juan County Fairgrounds (McGee Park) in a Motorhome.
