Coushatta Casino Resort Red Shoes RV Park, Kinder, Louisiana

Date of Stay: March, 2018 - $22.00
Overall Rating:

We added an extra day to our three-week trip so we could detour to Coushatta after hearing about the low price and amenities. We paid only $22 for a pull-through site near the expansive dog park. Our dog had a blast in that park! There is also a large lake in the middle of the park where you can fish. There is also a pool and a game room on site (none of which we had time to try). The staff are extremely friendly. A shuttle service runs 24 hours through the park, taking guests to and from the nearby casino--which was a blast for us! We ate, played blackjack, and danced. We will definitely be back--and for more than one night! We camped at Coushatta Casino Resort Red Shoes RV Park in a Motorhome.

Whistle Stop RV Resort, Abilene, Texas

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

This RV park is full of great amenities, and the staff are super friendly. The dog run is the biggest I've seen, and they even have a dog washing station. They have a great pool, tennis court, washers, horseshoe pits, store, event room, and a pavilion. I didn't use the bathhouse or laundry facilities. All the sites are good sized and have picnic tables and full hookups. They are still adding to the park, so I'm sure it will get even better. I only gave nine stars because the pads are gravel, and the row we were on has a lot of traffic noise, but you can only really hear it outside. I will definitely stay there again when we go to Abilene, and I highly recommend it. We camped at Whistle Stop RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Burns RV Park, Burns, Oregon

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $41.00
Overall Rating:

I made our reservation six months in advance due to the location of this park on our route to Yellowstone. I'm glad I did because we saw nothing else after leaving Corvallis, OR. If you are traveling that way, I recommend a reservation (even same day) because it's the only game in town. We were pleasantly surprised at the amenities of this park. The staff are friendly and helpful, even giving us fresh, homemade sorbet samples when we checked in. The little store offers groceries, a book exchange, and a nice selection of wine. We had a long, shaded pull-through site near the back with full hook-ups and a big, open field with a small creek behind us. Our dog enjoyed that area and the deer that frequented the field. The highlight of our one-night stay was the courtyard with the games. We played ladder toss and cornhole until it got dark. They also have badminton and other games. Other reviewers mentioned mosquitoes, but we only saw them near the creek. We didn't have issues at our site, the courtyard, or other areas. The park is sometimes difficult to reach by phone because of some glitch. I had better luck with their email address, burnsrvpark@yahoo.com. They are responsive, but allow a few hours for a reply. Don't waste your time with the 800 number as it went to another business every time I called it, though the park swears the number is theirs. You might fare better with their local number: (541) 573-7640.

Be sure to check out the courtyard behind the office for all the yard games. It is not easily visible from the sites. Sitting by the creek at the back of the property is relaxing but use bug spray near the water. We camped at Burns RV Park in a Motorhome.

Benton Oaks RV & Campground, Corvallis, Oregon

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

We chose a back-in site because those are near the wooded area and have more space between sites than the pull-through area. There were many mature trees in that section and a lot of space for our dog to explore. Our site was on the end of our row, nearest to the corral at the adjacent fairgrounds, so we did have sun on one side, unlike the interior sites. There was a rodeo that weekend at the fairgrounds. The arena is far enough from the campground to not be an annoyance but close enough to walk if you'd like some entertainment. The park has a rustic, campground feel while still being convenient to the city. We camped at Benton Oaks RV & Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

There is a running and bike trail on the road outside the park and a little grocery store within walking distance. Check out Sky High Brewing on 4th Street for great food, beer, and mixed drinks and cornhole on the roof. Alsea Falls is only 25 miles away and well worth the trip, and the nearby wineries are picturesque.

Emigrant Lake - The Point RV Park, Ashland, Oregon

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $38.00
Overall Rating:

We booked online, and I got to choose my own space: an amazing site right next to the lake. The view was spectacular, but it would have been good at any site with all the mountains around. The sites have fire rings and picnic tables. Our site wasn't very level and was a back-in, but it was paved and easy to back in to, and we were there for the view. There was a long wait to get parked, probably from people who didn't have reservations trying to find a spot, and we got there right at check-in time. Our name was attached to a pole on our reserved space. There is a friendly atmosphere with the other campers, who came from all over the country, and there are plenty of things to do at the lake. It is pet- and family-friendly. We camped at Emigrant Lake - The Point RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Wear good shoes if you walk down to the beach. I had flip flop-type sandals on and twisted my ankle on the short but steep and slippery hill, so we didn't get to do any of the fun lake stuff. We still enjoyed the awesome view!! Outside the RV section, the park itself has a 280-foot waterslide, canoes, skiing, fishing, and concession stand.

Sacramento Shade RV Park (formerly Oak Haven RV Park), Sacramento, California

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $55.00
Overall Rating:

This park facilities and sites are well-maintained, and there is a small dog run in the back. The park is primarily for full-timers who have gated yards, and it only has a couple of overnight spots. All spaces are incredibly small and close together, the roads have tight turns around buildings and brick landscaping walls, and we had trouble backing in our 34' motorhome onto our gravel pad, especially with all of the full-timer's vehicles parked opposite our site and everywhere else. At check-in, after a long day of driving, the owner talked to me--at length--about how they don't allow dogs anywhere but the dog run and how anyone caught with a dog relieving itself anywhere else on the property would be immediately asked to leave with no refund. Our site was as far as it could be from the dog run, and the roads were freshly paved, black asphalt in 90+ degree weather. We used the dog run once, but the roads were too hot for tender paws. We had to take our dog to the side of the freeway feeder road, near our site, where there was speeding traffic and a rocky surface with no grass. On the bright side, the little lawn outside our motorhome was immaculate. I can understand wanting to maintain the beauty of the park--and it was beautiful--but we felt like the management was constantly watching for any potential rule-breakers, and it didn't make for a welcoming atmosphere. Also, $55 for a tight gravel pad right next to the freeway is a bit ridiculous. We camped at Sacramento Shade RV Park (formerly Oak Haven RV Park) in a Motorhome.

Visalia / Sequoia National Park KOA, Visalia, California

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $58.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed on July 4th weekend for one night. The park has a large store with souvenirs, and a large pool that was full of kiddos. It also has a large dog park that is long enough for your pup to run. Like most KOAs, it was pricey for what you get. We had to wait a long time to be checked in (with reservations), but I'm glad we got there early. Later in the day, the park was completely full and the wait was longer. We camped at Visalia / Sequoia National Park KOA in a Motorhome.

If you go visit Sequoia National Park, make sure you bring a paper map. There are large sections of the park with no signal or GPS signal. And start with a full tank of gas as it is scarce in the mountains. Be sure to visit the Stagg Tree, which is the third largest tree in the world.

Wild West Ranch and RV Resort (formerly John Wayne RV Ranch), Maricopa, Arizona

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

This is a family-owned facility. It's in the middle of the scorching desert, but they still have a few trees and some grass where you can walk the dog. Some of the sites have concrete patios. In July when we stayed, all the full-timers had cleared out, and we had the park to ourselves. The store is well-stocked with dozens of craft and other beer at reasonable prices. If I lived in Maricopa, I would go to that store just to buy beer. They have some interesting architecture, and our host was personable and helpful. Their Wi-Fi is good, especially close to the store. We camped at Wild West Ranch and RV Resort (formerly John Wayne RV Ranch) in a Motorhome.

El Paso-West RV Park, Anthony, New Mexico

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

This is a nice little park with a lot of full-timers. Each site has a grass "yard" with a tree that is watered with non-potable water. The region is arid, and everything outside the yards is dust. They have recycle bins next to the dumpsters. The full-timers don't walk around in the evenings like at other parks. It's too hot. We camped at El Paso-West RV Park in a Motorhome.

Caverns of Sonora RV Park, Sonora, Texas

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

The sites themselves are nothing to write home about. They are small, and most have no trees. However, our site was shaded as there was no one else in the pull-thru section when we arrived, and we got to choose our own spot. The facility is amazing. Just next to the sites are fields, deer, and historical relics. The store has great ambience and gifts, and a little ice cream shop. The highlight was the caverns. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and personable, and the caverns are breathtaking. Because of the caverns, there are no sewer hookups or dump station, and the road to get to the facility is winding with steep grades, but it is paved, and the scenery is beautiful. Well worth the stop if you're in the area! We camped at Caverns of Sonora RV Park in a Motorhome.

Austin Lone Star RV Resort, Austin, Texas

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

This park is much nicer than the price indicates. The staff are friendly and accommodating, and the facilities are well above par. We stayed for an emergency stop on July 4th weekend, and they not only found us a spot, they helped us find a mobile mechanic to get us back on the road. They have an A++ swimming pool, uniformed staff, complimentary coffee, a little shop, propane, full hook-ups, shade, and pull-through sites (and cabins). We feel extremely lucky to have found this park after the emergency on the first night of our 5000-mile trip! We camped at Austin Lone Star RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Abilene State Park, Tuscola, Texas

Date of Stay: November, 2016 - $15.00
Overall Rating:

We visit a lot of state parks. So far, Abilene State Park is my favorite state park for camping. I love the peacefulness of it, the easy trails are well kept and take you through interesting and varied terrain. The campsites are large, wooded, and full of deer. Abilene State Park was built by the Civilian Conversation Corps, and the CCC structures are among the most impressive that I've seen: the giant swimming pool and adjoining clubhouse and shower rooms, which are all still in use, the stone staircase to the creek, and all the concrete picnic tables throughout the park that will last forever. The lake is fun if you have or rent a kayak or canoe. You can also fish from the pier or just skip rocks, and there is a trail around the lake, up into the hills. The only thing they could improve would be to add full hookups at more of the RV loops. Some only have electric and water with a dumping station. I should mention that they also have yurts and screen cabins and bathhouses throughout the park and a "wagon circle" loop meant for rallies or groups and overflow. That area has full hook-ups, an event center, and giant grill but fewer trees than the other loops. The park is only about a 30-minute drive from Abilene. We camped at Abilene State Park in a Motorhome.
