Tra-Park RV Park - Escapees Rainbow Park, Pecos, Texas

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

I wish I had only reserved for an overnight or not at all would have been fine. But we are here for 3 nights. Guess I will spend the time cleaning house, doing lots of laundry, give the pups a bath and hair trim cause I surely don't want to do anything within this park. It is disgusting, dirty, trashy and the office guy has a nasty attitude. We made reservations and reserved 50 amp pull through. Every other pull through has a patio, we don't. We asked for 50 amp, paid at check in for 50 amp (they actually charge a $1 a day extra for it) but the guy next to us took it instead of the 30 amp, so I had to take the 30amp. He is a TT and I am a 40' MH. When we brought it up to the office, the guy said, Oh your neighbor must have taken it, be up in the morning and move it over cause he leaves tomorrow and I will give you your $1 back. Really? NO, you go tell him he didn't pay for it and needs to move it. Thank you. The guy in office said, I don't have another spot for you and you live with 30 tonight or if you want, I will give you your money back and you can go elsewhere. Well at 5pm and sun starting to set now and after 5 hrs of driving....I should have gone and found a parking lot somewhere but instead we stayed. Mainly because we have a package coming on Wed here. No one on the pull thru, pull in straight so you have to pull in like a snake. We are about 3-4 ft from the main road because we had to pull far forward so we could open slides. Space was not wide enough and neighbors slides were out and we would have hit them. This is an Escapees Park and I am not an Escapees member but was intending to after first of year after we have wintered down. But now.....not so sure. This wasn't impressive It wasn't even just near ok. Would I stay here again. Never! Never! Never! This is not a good place to stay at all. We camped at Tra-Park RV Park - Escapees Rainbow Park in a Motorhome.

Whistle Stop RV Resort, Abilene, Texas

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

I agree with just about all the positive comments of previous posters. The only thing we didn't have that was mentioned was fire rings and wished we did. It had just rained when we got there and there were puddles at the office entrance but the sites were drained well. It also rained while we were there so it limited us being able to use the majority of facilities. They need a bigger sign saying Whistle Stop RV Park because their sign is big enough, but the writing is too small. We missed it and there is major major construction going on and it was hard to to get back over there, but we got there. Spaces are very roomy. Really nice new picnic tables with a patio area. Seems like a lot of permanents, but they respected the rules nicely. Only hard part was the roads are large gravel and our small senior dogs had a hard time walking on them so we couldn't get to the doggie park to enjoy some running around. The girl in the office is the sweetest thing. She gave me a gift and I so appreciate it and use it often. (if she is reading this, thank you again). Hookups are nicely surrounded by gravel so you don't have to step in the grass. Hookups worked great. I personally feel that the price is a tad high for what is offered. Their pricing is more resort type pricing and I read by another poster here that they are working on the place still, so maybe it will be a nice resort status. They charge more for pull thru and more for end spaces. They are $10 and $15 additional. Would I stay here again? You betcha! and I know we will. We camped at Whistle Stop RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Port Arthur RV Resort, Port Arthur, Texas

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $27.00
Overall Rating:      

Our price is half price for Passport America. Rate is $40 with FHU: so 2 days PA and then 3rd day full price. The park is is very open and fairly roomy. 95% of the people here are permanent residences. We were here a month after Harvey had given them armpit high water. There is a levy right behind their property, and I was told it wasn't put down soon enough but that it had also breached it.

The park was pretty clean considering what they had dealt with. Alot of RV's here showed signs of trouble. The ones that were removed, the removal company would leave behind the water and sewer hoses. We had a set on our site: pretty disgusting that the park owners or hosts hadn't come out and cleaned this stuff up. There were patches of grass on each side of our RV. A yellow table that was severely paint peeling and warped. (Not usable). Looked like the permanents were given new red ones.

It was quiet. ATT worked great, didn't use park wifi. Being no trees, satellite dish did very well. The permanents were very friendly and were anxious to share their stories from their Harvey experience. We would stay here again if in the area. We camped at Port Arthur RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Huntsville State Park, Huntsville, Texas

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

Never again in this state park. I love state parks but this one, no way. First of all, we stayed in the FHU loop and picked space 14 because it was the most level and had the ONLY open area with FHU that you could get your Sat Dish to seek up. Your table is concrete. The table and the fire pit are down 5 or 6 steps on a lower level. So everytime you needed something from the RV you had to go up and down. At the fire pit, you were surrounded by lots of trees and foliage and a standing still lake that allowed for more biting bugs that I have ever experienced in my life.

We didn't use the picnic area or firepit. Just directing my husband to set the RV up so we were in the right spot...took about 10 mins...my legs, arms, feet and back were covered in horrible bites. No matter what I did, shower, ice pack, witch hazel, cortizone, calamine, you name it: didn't help. 3 days here felt like a lifetime of hell. We had to relevel every day because the ground was so uneven.

They told us on the phone that it was $25.00 per night for FHU and $5 per day, per person for park entry. The girl told us that being they are affiliated with a national park they would honor our America the Beautiful and not charge park entrance. Well, we got here and even though the reservation said no charge for entrance the guy at the desk said, unless you have a Texas State Park pass, you have to pay it. If it wasn't getting late in the day, I would have left.

It cost us for 3 days: $30 just for park entrance and $75 for site. I could have stayed at any park for $35 a day and could have sat outside and not gotten bitten to death. Not very accommodating. Now I know why there is hardly anyone here except for locals doing a day visit to fish in the pond, or go to the so called beach.

If you are a big rig or your RV is over 40'...this is not a good park for anything over that. We are 40'MH and towed and we just barely made it through the roadways. Over head trees are desperate for trimming. I am sure my AC units help trim some.

Sewer hookup is raised so if your sewer hose comes out low be prepared. It will never be in a proper position to fully drain. Drainage will lay in that sewer hose till you are ready to leave and hold it up and rinse it. We camped at Huntsville State Park in a Motorhome.

Poche's RV Park, Breaux Bridge, Louisiana

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

This is a very unique campground....first I will start with, the roads are a nightmare to get to this place, probably from some previous flooding and never repaired. Can really shake your brains and RV into another galaxy! Our campsite was surrounded by water, literately. We had a large pond behind us, one in front of us, one to the right of us. Another site on the left of us. They have a total of 5 -- 4 large ponds and 1 small pond. They are stocked with fish and RVers can fish for free. Outsiders pay to fish and are limited to 4 fish per visit. RVers can catch all they want. Our space backed right up to one pond and right in front of us was a road, just wide enough to swing a 40'MH into space....so now we had a small road in front of us and then giant pond again. We had the only street light and fire ring in our row. We weren't comfortable sitting outside as the pond behind us kept gargling or making a weird noise. Would I stay again? For the PA price, probably, for a short stay again. We stayed this time 3 days and that was plenty long enough, it was a pass through. The grass is nicely kept and green. They have an adorable playground with popping water next to it. The water pops out of holes in the ground and you run over or around them. Pool is nice and clean and well stocked with nice lawn furniture. Our picnic table was pretty warped. Most others were fine. We camped at Poche's RV Park in a Motorhome.

Majestic Oaks RV Resort, Biloxi, Mississippi

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $42.00
Overall Rating:      

This is not what I call a resort. Spaces are not only super tight but half of your patio has to be taken up with your vehicle. Alot of permanents there that have stuff all over, have prime spots. When we pulled up our car, we had no patio at all because we had a giant bush that would not let us open our car door, so we had to pull up more so. Second night there, a family of 4 adults and 1 grade school age son arrived at 9pm from Florida. They were escaping Irma....they came with a class C, a large pickup truck and a large trailer. In the trailer were suit cases, backyard grill, tables, chairs and lots of extension cords for their electronics. They drank and got drunk, laughed really loud....past 1am, no regard for curfew. They were there 3 nights like this. Their patio was right under our livingroom couch window. One smoked like a chimney and we could smell it. Owners cared less. Hard to complain as most times no one is in office. Office hours are short but no one there when it is suppose to be open. Took 2 days to buy propane from them. Laundry room has one washer, one dryer. Dryer takes FOREVER to dry. No rules enforced, people drive up one way streets, park boats in street so you can't get by. No dog run, just grass areas. Not a desirable part of town at all. I think property should be gated. Pool water was hazy and pool was kind of small. Nice patio with nice lounge chairs. We were about 5/6 blocks from Beach Blvd gulf beaches. Would I stay again? If no where else had openings. We were there 10 days, I don't think I would stay there that long again. We camped at Majestic Oaks RV Resort in a Motorhome.

The beaches are nice and white, no seashells. The sharkhead gift shop is very large but not real authentic. Nicest part of it is the guy that does airbrushing. Ocean Springs (first light over the bridge) has an cute little downtown area with unique and specialty shops. On Sunday they also have a farmers market till 1230pm.

We were there when some bands of Hurricane Harvey came through. It rained really really hard and there were lots of big puddles of water all over the park. It rained about 15 hours. Within 2 hours of stopping.... all the water was gone from the campground. Great drainage!! Really awesome gated dog area. One for large, one for small dogs. Each has some agility items in each. Nice spacious hard gravel pack sites and some cement sites. Medal round table and 4 chairs supplied on large patios. each site also has cement walkways. Clean and spacious. Sat Dish worked great, didn't use wifi. AT&T worked great. We would and will stay here again. We camped at Shreveport / Bossier City KOA (formerly Tall Pines RV Park) in a Motorhome.

On-Ur-Wa RV Park, Onawa, Iowa

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

This is a great little park off the beaten path. We stopped to camp at the state park but they were full. They told us that year round the locals will pay for a week or two but only be there on weekends. At $14 a night, it is worth it to them to pay for a week so they are guaranteed a spot. There is a KOA, there 2 but older, not as spacious and same price as this place. All 3 CG are within blocks of each other. The owners are AWESOME people! Very welcoming, friendly and informative. Love their dog Harley too! He is a senior Bichon like my two girls are. They escort to your space. Check in with you to make sure all is ok. Have a fenced in off leash pet area. CG was really nice, grass area with little flower pot at front of each site. Mini 4 seater picnic table. Gravel site and gravel roads. Hard pack and pretty level. Well shaded but open enough for our Sat Dish. We would surely visit here again when passing through and I am sure we will be. We camped at On-Ur-Wa RV Park in a Motorhome.

Downtown Riverside RV Park, North Little Rock, Arkansas

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $23.00
Overall Rating:      

It is a parking lot that faces the Arkansas River. Right next to it is a long walking bridge. At night it is illuminated in various colors, something different almost every night. No personal picnic tables. No grass at sites....whole CG is Blacktop/Concrete...except across the front by the river, that is grass. It is for walking dogs (bag stations all along) There are picnic tables to sit at and watch the boats in the water or the lights at night. There is also a very large covered patio with picnic tables for any and all RV people to use. The grounds are gated. There is a laundry room but the check in person has to activate it for you and you pay them directly. One washer/one dryer. It is not a safe neighborhood at all. Lots of vagrants and homeless all over and under the bridges. People wandering aimlessly. Felt very safe in the CG. Very well lit yet not too bright as so you can't sleep. I was a little upset when we made reserv. We asked for Passport America and was told it is available. PA sites are the ones in the last row. When we got there, we were told they were full. We originally were there for 3 nights. During that time there were 4 spaces in that last row open the whole time. We added 4 more nights as we were going south and wanted to wait for Harvey to pass. We again asked for PA and was told the same. Now there were 6 spaces open for those 4 days. So if you see they offer PA, don't expect it, not even for one night. So we paid to stay in the middle row. Front row is riverside and costs extra. Most in front of us was empty the whole time, so we had River view anyway. I would only stay there again if I needed to. It is the best CG in the area but would try to avoid having to stay in Little Rock at all costs. Utilities were good. Didn't use wifi, we had AT&T phones and hotspot and worked great. We camped at Downtown Riverside RV Park in a Motorhome.

It is worth the price only because you are literately a block away from the main strip of things to do. Next driveway over is the Titanic Museum. The CG is very very narrow roads and very steep hills. They do escort you to your site. Turns are tight with our 40'MH plus toad. It was quiet and peaceful. Nicely shaded but open enough that our Sat Dish connected fine. AT&T worked great. Our hotspot was real receptive. Didn't use CG Wifi. All spaces are back in and we were backed to a forest type area. Past that there is a road and a stadium type ball park. The weekend they set off long lasting fireworks. We passed the Bathroom and shower shed. It had one bathroom for each (man/women) and looked like 3 showers but two had signs saying out of order. Check in is pleasant, they also have discount tickets you can buy for various things in town. They have a list for you to have with all prices. I love that they have all emergency # posted outside, hospital, fire, pet, urgent care, park personnel. It is a gated CG. Site is pretty roomy with Table. Fire ring only for charcoal or propane, no wood fires. Utilities worked well. We camped at Musicland Kampground in a Motorhome.

Fleming Park/Blue Springs Campground, Blue Springs, Missouri

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $28.00
Overall Rating:      

Great Park! Hosts are top notch! Main reason didn't give a 10, cause in April/May had some serious rainfalls. Run offs created big craters in many sites. Had to split our 10 day stay between 2 sites. Site 29 was pitiful. Had so many craters & deep tire markings that need to be filled in & leveled. Our MH has 3 steps outside & if we deflate airbags, it brings us down low so the last step is normal height. But because of the craters & hill we were on we needed 2 more steps but could not get Xtra steps to be level no how. We are not young & was very hard to get in & out as well as our senior dogs. We had neighbors right beside us but because they were higher than us, their ground was level. That was for 4 days, then to space 11 for 6 days & we are on our 6th day here. 11 is soooo much better. We are in one of the solo sites, not shared with another RV. It is flatter, roomier, nice grass. 29 faces west & sun would set on the windshield so we would put shade down for awhile. 11 faces north & sun rises & sets on each side of the MH, makes MH hotter. They have laundry but just one washer & one dryer. $1.50 ea. They sell a large bucket of wood $7, you can't use your own wood in campfire, not allowed. The roads are a bit narrow & have some tight curves but if you go slow, you will be fine. Just watch for those that don't know how to park vehicles off the road. Each space has enough room for your vehicle but some spaces you have to park it upward or downward of the hill. Some don't like that so they park partially on the road, makes hard to navigate & swing into spaces. Lots of trees on outer edges of the park, the spaces are pretty open, made it good for our Sat Dish. No wifi, our AT&T hotspot worked great. Nice playground in the middle of park. We were in the East Loop, the West Loop seems to be more small travel trailers & tents. This place is actually in Lees Summit, MO. Was here spending time w/DH childhood friend. We will be back again & will surely stay here again! We camped at Fleming Park/Blue Springs Campground in a Motorhome.

We arrived around 930pm as we had rv issues, wind storm and rain that delayed us. We knew from our resv email, we were in space 3. Which you have to go through the entire park to get to it. At the top of the park by the lake....is a very dark hairpin turn. When to can't see due to not lights at all but headlights you can't tell where the edge of road is. Severe low and over hanging trees. A pine tree snaged us bad. We stopped to access trying to minimize damage to our MY. Host showed up to help. We had to unhook towed. Side of rv is scratched real bad. Gonna be a costly one. Space 3 had over hanging trees about 9 ft above. Again my MH was taking a beating. He finally offered a pull through. It only had 30 amp service but we took it. It is right at the hairpin turn. This time when we leave....we will drive onto the grass avoid trees. Trees need serious trimming. Rest of park was clean and neat. Smaller spaces in the center were all empty. Probably more renters than anything else. There is only like 2 or 3 sites that can accommodate 40ft MH. With 50 amp. A few more with only 30 amp. If I was to ever think of staying again (only if no where else is available) I would not make reservation...i would want to come and be able to pick my spot. Our soot was one of very few with no trees which let us get satellite reception. I think there is only one other that is that clear. We camped at Lake Mitchell Campground in a Motorhome.

Don't know why more people haven't reviewed since 2016. We stayed a week in June & moved to our mailing service in Box Elder for a week but they kept having to move us & w/4 slides thats a pain. We decided for the last week or 2 of our stay, we would move back up here to Piedmont. Were here for 4th of July & being the Campground literately is on I-90, across the highway was a fireworks store. For 3 nights leading up to the 4th & on the 4th we had awesome fireworks show. The campground is roomy, plenty of spaces and space between, picnic tables, (had fire rings but SD is under a no fire law right now with drought, so they removed them) There is a mobile home park on the far side of the restaurant and the campgrounds on the other far side of the restaurant. There is a $1.20 washer and a free dryer. Nice clear and clean (but very busy) swimming pool. Some trees, some spaces are shaded, some out in the open, some partial shade. There are TeePees to rent and little cabins with small porches and rockers on them. There are permanent RVers here in much much older RVs but areas around their RVs are pretty clean and neat. For some reason I-90 traffic is not alot and we never hear any of it unless we sit outside but then it isn't like you can't hear each other type noise. It is family owned and they are all welcoming and pleasant. Very easy going. Restaurant has a minimal menu. More like a bar menu...but reasonable and the few times we tried it, their food was good. A few sites are not level enough for big rigs but while here they were putting out more rocks and dirt to help with that. But there are plenty of sites so if you are large like us 40' with toad, you will find spaces with and without shade. BTW, the spaces you have seen mentioned that have canopies, they are wood canopies with concrete decks but are very limited & cost more. Wifi is good but not secure. AT&T worked great. We like it here alot and if we came back to the area, we would stay here in a heartbeat. We camped at Sacora Station Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

You are only 10 -15 mins from Rapid City. 15 mins from the Air Force Base Museum. About 45mins from Custer where Custer State Park and Mt Rushmore and many other sites. An hour away from Wall Drugs in Wall, SD as well as the Badlands As big as Rapid City is, there is only Walmart Super Store to shop for food and for us...it didn't have a whole lot to offer. The camping world is in Summerset which is just 2-3 miles from Piedmont but is more about selling RV's than product.

Americas Campground, Box Elder, South Dakota

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

We stayed here because we needed to get our licenses and car registered which has to date taken almost 4 weeks because of paperwork but not Americas Mailboxes fault. We were originally put in space 18 with full hook up ($32.) but then a few days later we told we had to move to an electric only site ($25.). After that we were asked to move two more times so it seems there are more permanent RVers than Mailbox service customers or outsiders. They have what appears to be more spaces going in on another piece of land behind theirs but no one was out there doing any work all the time we were there, so I am assuming something or someone has halted the job. Either way, very very inconvenient, yet our emails from them are always showing their signature lines to say Don't forget, we have RV parking now and cheapest around. May be cheapest (though 5 mins to Piedmont is cheaper) but being cheaper I guess means all the permanents have moved in. There is barely any room between the full hook up sites at all. No trees, no shade. Weeds, no grass between spaces. Was very disappointed. The front desk people inside are VERY VERY HELPFUL. As well as the other Americas Mailbox employees for Americas Mailbox side of the business. But I am sorry to say that the RV park is poorly run, disorganized and not pleasant a stay at all. Just to note, site 18 had full hookup, site 5 was electric only but they do have a dump and water fill station but when you dump or fill up, you are blocking the road to get around sites. In the future I would only stay here if I had no other choice and it was only for one to two nights. We camped at Americas Campground in a Motorhome.

French Creek RV Campground, Custer, South Dakota

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $28.00
Overall Rating:      

This park should not accept motorhome or units that are over 32-35 ft. We are 40' plus toad. We barely fit between the 2 motorhome. We all had 4 slides and could barely walk between RVs. Could not put our awning. Said fire rings on listing but only a few spaces had them. Picnic table is at the back of your RV on a grass area, on a busy street. No fencing. One motorhome backed in and because of it being so tight, he hit the electric pedestal and leaned it over, his RV took the bigger of the hit. Barely enough room to park your car in front of your RV. People with pickups don't fit so they stick out and block roadway...making other RVs not able to get in spaces. Just chaos. WiFi was good, AT&T worked great. Downtown was fun to walk. Only few blocks away. We were booked for 2 weeks but wasn't worth the money to be so cramped so we left after one week and moved to another campground. They did give second week refund. All sites are gravel. Grass only on parameter of whole property. Horrible trees that shed like white cotton all over. We had rain and it made them stick to our slide toppers...pain to get off when wet. Would probably not stay here again unless nothing else available. We camped at French Creek RV Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Custer State Park and the wildlife loop were great. So was Mount Rushmore. Would not do the parks with an RV rig of any sort. Tight turn roads, very narrow and short tunnels in mountains. There is RV parking at mount Rushmore. They honor senior national park pass. $5. Instead of $10. Per vehicle, not per person. And downtown was fun to walk. All were pet friendly.
