White Tank Regional Park, Waddell, Arizona

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

We stayed at White Tank Regional Park for a week. There are beautiful mountains all around, and great trails for riding and running/hiking. The view at night of the city in the distance was lovely. It was quiet here, until the weekend when there was a mountain bike event (but those kids were all really well behaved and friendly.) We visited the library and shop. The dogs enjoyed it as well. We had fair to good connectivity on AT&T, fair only for Verizon. We camped at White Tank Regional Park in a Motorhome.

McDowell Mountain Regional Park, Scottsdale, Arizona

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

We love it here. The views are tremendous. We prefer the south loop (sites 45-80). This is a very clean, well maintained county park. The trails are amazing. We came to volunteer for an ultramarathon being held on the trails in the park. We got plenty of running and biking in while here. I had very good connectivity for work on AT&T and Verizon. An earlier reviewer remarked about the planes, but I enjoyed watching them. The park is close to services in Fountain Hills, Tempe and Phoenix. I had to travel for work and it was easy for me to get to the airport. We will definitely stay again. It is a great place, and the staff are very helpful and friendly. We camped at McDowell Mountain Regional Park in a Motorhome.

While we were there, there was both a mountain biking event (one weekend) and an ultramarathon (the other weekend) happening in the park, so if you are in to either of these things, this is the place to be.

Dead Horse Ranch State Park, Cottonwood, Arizona

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

Dead Horse Ranch State Park was a perfect spot for what we needed. The trails are great for hiking and running, and most run right from each campground. The sites are fairly large and offer some privacy. We had good connectivity on both AT&T and Verizon. It is a bit dusty and there are flies, but other than that, it's pretty typical of a state park. Things are well tended, and the staff and volunteers are friendly and helpful. Nearby there are lots of things to do. We camped at Dead Horse Ranch State Park in a Motorhome.

Meteor Crater RV Park, Winslow, Arizona

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

We stayed here for one week in September. The best part (for us) was walking with the dogs and exploring old route 66. We liked the individual bathroom / showers, and we really loved the apple tree (pick your own!) The management was helpful in every way. The location was off of 40 so a bit noisy, but we got used to it. Gorgeous sunsets. A bit windy for the awning. We had a pull-through site with water and electric. We will likely stay again next time through. We camped at Meteor Crater RV Park in a Motorhome.

Monument RV Resort, Fruita, Colorado

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

Rate reflects average as we also stayed in one of the cabins while our RV was being repaired in Grand Junction. This was our chores week that turned into two and a half weeks. Monument RV Park is very convenient to services in both Fruita and Grand Junction, CO, which was great for us as we had RV repair, bike repair and doctor visits while staying. It is also close to great hiking and bike trails. It's about 2 hours from Moab and Arches NP. A lot of mountain bikers stayed here. The Owners and staff are so helpful and friendly, also very accommodating as we had to switch midway through our stay to a cabin. They allowed our two dogs to join us in the cabin, which is unusual for a campground and much appreciated. Right across the road, a state park trail goes around a pond and down to the river. Great for dogs! Also, there is a sweet little bike park a block away. We'll definitely return if we are in the area again. We camped at Monument RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Fruita - Rib City is in walking distance and very good. Colorado Backcountry Bikes did a great (cheap) repair for us. The Fruita Bike Park, a block away, is cute and scenic, and has plenty of fun obstacles. McInnes Canyon is within walking distance and has some trailheads down the road (walk south, go over bridge, trailhead on right.) GREAT trails.

Desert Trails RV Park (40+ park), Tucson, Arizona

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

Desert Trails set a high bar for RV parks with us. We planned only to spend a week, but ended up staying over a month. For us, it is important that I have wifi (I work remotely), that we have access to nature and culture nearby and that there be reasonably clean facilities. Well, Desert Trails exceeds in every way. There is wifi throughout the park which is perfect for checking email and social media. We don't stream on park wifi (we have our own mifi) but for what we needed it for, the wifi was very good. Also, for anything stronger, I just used one of the several ethernet connections in a couple of the park buildings. The bathrooms are all nicely designed and clean and accessible. I actually miss them as we have gone down the road and not had bathrooms as clean, or warm (on cold desert nights/mornings). The laundry facilities are well maintained. They sell 30/50 converters at the desk and you can sell it back to them, for a little less, at the end of your stay. For nature, we only had to walk/ride our mountain bikes out back for miles and miles of desert trails for all abilities bordering the park. Each weekend we found some cultural activity to enjoy offsite (Desert Museum, Tuscon, etc.) but I cannot discount the amazing live acts we got to see at Desert Trails. Some really amazing musicians come to play there. All the sites are different and funky because of the property having been at one time a water park, so there are little neighborhoods. Folks are friendly. There are owls, hawks, coyote and javalinas. We met lots of great, active people (world champ mountain biker winters there) and we are definitely going back next winter. We camped at Desert Trails RV Park (40+ park) in a Motorhome.

Bring your mountain bikes! Ride out to see the petroglyphs or the desert museum. Hiking options abound. Save your ones and fives for pass that hat music nights. Doughnuts at the Monday morning "about the week" meetings!

Marathon Motel and RV Park, Marathon, Texas

Date of Stay: January, 2017 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

Positives for Marathon RV Park are that you can walk to town (coffee shop, breakfast restaurant, dinner restaurant, library, grocery), beautiful sunsets and mountain views, friendly people, Inner courtyard and outdoor cafe space to sit away from the camper occasionally. If you are a train lover, as I am, you will love this place, because the trains come through about four or five times a day, right across the road (and at night, too. I loved it but I heard some people needed ear plugs, which they provide at the office.)

Challenges: Wifi was not great. I needed it for work and ended up blowing through my cell data that week. Laundry machines were out of order the whole week.

Disappointments: There was no activity at all re: stargazing, and no fires at night in the courtyard. We had been looking forward to that after reading other reviews. It was pretty quiet.

Overall, a good value, a good location, especially if you want to go to Big Bend. We camped at Marathon Motel and RV Park in a Motorhome.

There's not much happening in Marathon. The coffee shop is overpriced but they are very friendly and the wifi is good. French's grocery is not fancy but has everything you will need and is priced right. The locals are friendly and engaging.

Manzano's RV Park, Silver City, New Mexico

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

We were so happy with our week at Manzano's RV park. Now, we are spoiled and will be judging all other parks by this one. Clean, quiet, nicely landscaped, with friendly and down-to-earth owners, Manzano's met our every need. Their wifi was strong (we needed for email and skype, but did not stream - didn't want to be "that camper") in our site. If that is important, tell the owner - they will put you in a site near the wifi. Our site was private with trees and plantings on both sides. Our Verizon signal was strong. The laundry machines are inexpensive but there is only one washer and dryer. Since the park is small, this was not a big deal. We walked our dogs and ran and mountain biked on local roads and trails, all within a few minutes. Downtown is about 5 miles away. The bathrooms are squeaky-clean. They are located in the clubhouse, which is more like a real house. The clubhouse features a DVD and book library. Everything is kept well organized and neat as a pin - the owners care very much about this place. Note that the clubhouse closes at eight and opens in the morning at seven, so plan accordingly. We will be coming back in the warmer weather. We loved it here. We camped at Manzano's RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Hiking / Mountainbiking nearby at Dragonfly Trail (part of the Gila Wilderness) with a trailhead a mere 3 miles away. About 6 miles away is Boston Hill, which is a little more technical and will give you a workout. A good running route from the campground: Up Flurry all the way to the end, right on Racetrack Road for as far as you need for an out-and-back.

Southbound 59 RV Park & Furnished Country Cabins, Victoria, Texas

Date of Stay: December, 2016 - $29.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed at Southbound in December. The young family that runs this park are hard-working and very friendly. They put a lot of time and attention in to the little details, and while we were there, were busy with constant improvements. The park is spread over a few acres of property bordered on both sides by farm, so we had lots of sightings of a friendly donkey and a herd of cattle. The park is made up of about half seasonal campers who treat each other like family and good neighbors. It is a warm community. There is a fenced dog yard for playing. Note though that the grass elsewhere on the property has stickers or goatheads that can bother feet. We found these all over the south though, so it is not a fault, just something to note. There are dirt roads within the campground for walking dogs, though. The campground is on Highway 59, but the sites are far enough off the road that it wasn't noisy. Overall, this campground is safe, friendly, and located in a good area. They have planned potlucks and bingo every once in awhile, too. We were there at Christmastime and there was a potluck dinner where we got to meet our neighbors. We'll likely be back in the Spring! We camped at Southbound 59 RV Park & Furnished Country Cabins in a Motorhome.
