Parkers Crossroads RV Park and Campground, Yuma, Tennessee

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

Nice check in. Congested park with confusing, narrow roads. It was difficult to figure out where to drive. Nice level concrete pad with wood deck. No grass or tree at site. Not pretty. We had a site on the edge, so had a nice view. Nice feature: they have Digiorno pizza that they will bake and bring to you. Pool was an in-ground vinyl-liner type but was closed while we were there. Good laundry. Great WiFi. Cable. Thorough literature that even included instructions of how to get places like Walmart. No circuit breaker on electric. We camped at Parkers Crossroads RV Park and Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Anchor Down RV Resort, Dandridge, Tennessee

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $59.00
Overall Rating:

A true resort. This place would be fabulous for families with kids. It has EVERYTHING: pool, water park on lake, views, dog park and more. We had site 17 up on a hill which was very spacious with a view of the lake. The sites that were on the lower level with back ins on the lake looked congested. One must rent a golf cart for $39/day to get to the office, pool, water park, etc. unless you young and athletic. Sitting by the pool one has a beautiful view of the lake. There is a little walk-up place near the pool that has hot dogs, hamburgers and pork sandwiches. The surface where you park your RV is a little strange. It is kind of cement but slick and textured. We tried to use our Camco leveling blocks, but they just skidded along and got chewed up by the texture. Luckily we had some wood we could use. The pad was not far off level. We camped at Anchor Down RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Absolutely go to the Biltmore Estate in Asheville North Carolina. Rent a golf cart at Anchor Down - just count it as part of the cost of staying there. Sit down by the pool to take in the view of the lake.

Anderson Road Campground, Nashville, Tennessee

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $10.00
Overall Rating:

This might be an OK park for tents or little trailers. We did not like it. The pull through was narrow and curved and the tree branches made it more narrow. It was dark and there was nowhere one would enjoy sitting outside to enjoy nature. It just was not pretty. Bathroom clean and nice. Dump station difficult to get to so we skipped it. There was water and electric that worked well. We could see a filtered view of the lake through the forest. Some small back-in sites were on the lake which might have been nice. We had reservations to return in a few days but we cancelled. We did not want to return. We camped at Anderson Road Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Victory RV Park and Campground, Paducah, Kentucky

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

We were literally the only ones there, so difficult to review. We absolutely loved it and had beautiful views, but if it were packed with other RVs, it would have been quite different. I would say one should try to get a space (maybe site 10?) on end or edge to have wonderful views. Attractive pond in center. The owner or operator, is super nice-makes one feel really welcome. Apparently the nearby drag strip and raceway can be very noisy but they were empty while we were there. One might want to ask about that. We camped at Victory RV Park and Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Worlds of Fun Village, Kansas City, Missouri

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

Cement site, no shade. Nice grass. Check in nice. People in office super nice. When us Californians were very uneasy during a severe thunderstorm, they were helpful and said if it caused trouble with our 5th wheel, they would put us up in a cabin. We had quite a bit of trouble finding where to go into this park. We think they need to post very detailed driving instructions. It may seem obvious to them, but we carefully followed their directions with not so good results-took us to a closed gate. Had to call for better directions. Zero shade around pool, so when it is hot and a pool sounds good, nope. Nice looking pool though. Very easy to pull into site and it was perfectly level. We camped at Worlds of Fun Village in a Fifth Wheel.

Farnum Creek COE, Junction City, Kansas

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $11.00
Overall Rating:

Love this place. Loop A has water/electric hookups and most sites have at least a small view of the lake. Lots of shade from big, mature cicada-laden trees (noisy at times). Lots of packed-together, back-in sites on the lake but we had a spacious pull-through with a little view of the lake. Nice flush-toilet bathroom. Playground. Rangers came through to check on things. Volunteers came through to make sure all was good. Very friendly check in. Our site (#1) had a nice lawn on one side. Sites are not level. We camped at Farnum Creek COE in a Fifth Wheel.

There is a Phillips 66 south on 77 about 5 miles. There is a Walmart FOOD store a little further south on 77. Check out the Milford Nature Center - live and taxidermied animals, reptiles and birds. Has a live-butterfly enclosure.

High Plains Camping, Oakley, Kansas

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

The paper given when you check in calls this place "High Plains RV Resort." It is not a resort. The lady who checked us in was very nice. The cable and electric and water all worked well. The site was bur clover and gravel and easy to get level, and long enough we didn't have to unhitch. If you have pets, I think you want to go somewhere else. The burs are like very strong, sharp thorns that get all over the bottom of shoes - I hate to think of dogs paws walking there. If you like to use campground bathrooms in the morning, this is not the place for you. Their literature says they are for only those without their own bathroom. They are locked and no code is given. No showers. Did not look at pool. On-site pub we didn't try. No shade, and they recommend you keep awning in due to possible sudden winds. Big, bright parking lot light on all night. We camped at High Plains Camping in a Fifth Wheel.

Junction West RV Park, Grand Junction, Colorado

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

Rocks, rocks everywhere. Site was large "gravel." No grass. Level. Best WiFi we have experienced at any RV park - we could stream YouTube. Bathrooms were immaculate. The women's bathroom had bouquets of fake but bright, colorful flowers-a welcome site. Our site was double wide, so on our door side there was lots of space from neighbor. But site was short-required to disconnect. There was supposed to be cable but when my husband went to office about there seeming to be no place to hook up, they acted surprised. They said they would check, but never did. I believe they know darn well there is no cable at that site. We camped at Junction West RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Very friendly check in. Parking is on cement. Level. The adult pool looked very nice. We suggest you eat at Bachi Burger nearby. Extraordinary burger choices, some with an Asian flair.

Anza-Borrego Desert State Park - Borrego Palm Canyon Campground, Borrego Springs, California

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

We love this park. The sites are big with easy access. Our site was long enough for our 5th wheel and truck and a visitor. (We did unhook to play tourist.) Each site has a big fire ring with a hinged heavy-duty grate where one could cook if desired. Each site has a picnic table. There are desert bushes between sites that give privacy. It is quiet. It is near Borrego Springs. One must drive around to see the sculptures in the desert. If there has been rain, the wildflowers are spectacular. Last year we saw the "super bloom." This year there were virtually no flowers, but the desert's starkness is soothing. There is a market in nearby Borrego Springs if needed. We camped at Anza-Borrego Desert State Park - Borrego Palm Canyon Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Santee Lakes Recreation Preserve, Santee, California

Date of Stay: March, 2017 - $56.00
Overall Rating:

The showers are clean with great hot water, but there is nowhere to get dressed. These are the worst showers we have seen because of that. There seem to be a lot of long term families. It seems to be great for kids. It is not so good for older people because of so many noisy kids. Kids seem to be having a blast, so that is nice for families. Staff are super friendly. Pool is not heated. Can rent volleyball and horseshoes. Nice little store with cookies, candy, chips and ice cream. Our site was huge with a lot of space from our neighbors and plenty long for our 5th wheel and truck. Wifi is the best we have experienced at any rv park. Cable TV picture quality is poor. Lakes are picturesque. Lots of kids fishing, but never saw any fish. We camped at Santee Lakes Recreation Preserve in a Fifth Wheel.
