Hawthorn Bluff COE, Oologah, Oklahoma

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

All sites have 30amp electric (no 50amp). No sites have sewer or water (although there are water spigots to fill your tanks somewhat nearby). The sites were not very level. I had to put the right side tires on blocks so that my leveling system would even attempt to level the RV. We camped at Hawthorn Bluff COE in a Motorhome.

Springhill COE, Barling, Arkansas

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

The B loop is 50 amp and forested. The A loop is 30 amp and has water views. All sites had water; none had sewer. Most sites at B loop were excessively out of level. Our front jacks were fully extended and we were still not level. There is a nice hike/bike loop through and around the campground. We camped at Springhill COE in a Motorhome.

Willow Beach COE, Scott, Arkansas

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $12.00
Overall Rating:

All sites at this park seem to have electricity and water with no sewer (there is a dump station available). Some sites are not level (ours - site 8) required our front wheels to be off the ground about 4 inches (we had them on blocks). Lots of ant piles around. The restroom/showers in the campground were closed - if needed you'd have to go to other end of park (to the day use end) and use those facilities. Wonderful view of the river and waterfowl. We camped at Willow Beach COE in a Motorhome.

Town Creek Campground COE, West Point, Mississippi

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

Love this park! All sites have water and electricity. Sites 62 & 65 have sewer. Very nice paved pathway through the forest. There's a small lake/pond nearby. Only negative is that we're near the Columbus AFB airport and you can hear/see the planes occasionally if you're outside (not while inside the RV with the A/C running). We camped at Town Creek Campground COE in a Motorhome.

Hernando Point - COE, Hernando, Mississippi

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

We walked in on a Monday morning and found a few of the walk-in sites available. We weren't expecting water hookups; but it appears that all sites have water. However, site #68 had minimal pressure. There's a bit of construction going on towards the entrance to the campground area and they start about 7am in the morning. The occasional airplane overhead reminds you that you're not far from Memphis airport. The picnic tables and fire rings are sometimes placed far away from the RV site making them less convenient to use (ours was in the forest 50-100 feet away). Verizon is hit and miss with its connectivity (even with signal amplifier) for Internet use. Along the lake the service seemed better. We camped at Hernando Point - COE in a Motorhome.

Columbus-Belmont State Park, Columbus, Kentucky

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

Although one of the more expensive state parks we've stayed in, we really loved this park! The ONLY downside that we found was that some sites were unlevel requiring longer wheel based vehicles to drive up on blocks. Having said that, our site (#27) was pretty level with a great view of the river below. The "available wi-fi" is a system that you have to pay for. However, we were able to use our Verizon phones as a hot-spot. The camp host was extremely helpful! We camped at Columbus-Belmont State Park in a Motorhome.

Boulder Recreation Area Campground COE, Carlyle, Illinois

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $8.00
Overall Rating:

There are no major downsides to this campground... some things are beyond the campground's control and are mentioned in other reviews: -- lots of gnats. -- long narrow roads to get here when coming from the north. -- some sites would be difficult to get level in with motorhome. The cleanliness of the bathrooms is great (I've seen a cleaning lady here every morning). The laundry facilities (2 washers and 2 dryers) are inexpensive at $1 each (although one dryer stopped working). There are a variety of sites (full hookups, electric & water, and electric only). The first come first serve sites are electric only. We camped at Boulder Recreation Area Campground COE in a Motorhome.

Forrest W. "Bo" Wood COE, Sullivan, Illinois

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $8.00
Overall Rating:

This is a pretty big campground with several loops. Some are just electric, some have water, and some have sewer. Make sure you get what you want. Our GPS went a little whacky while at this campground because it seems they've rearranged the roads since Garmin updated the maps in their GPSs. Not a big deal though, the GPS got us to the campground alright. Some sites that are considered "waterfront" aren't really. They're on top of a hill that MIGHT have a view of the water through all the trees. Our site - 67 - did not have a water view. We camped at Forrest W. "Bo" Wood COE in a Motorhome.

Indiana Dunes State Park, Chesterton, Indiana

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

Loved this park. The restrooms/showers were a bit dingy due to continual use throughout the summer; but they are clean. The camp store had ice cream which is always a bonus. Don't think any sites had sewer or water; but there is a dump station and several potable water spigots throughout the camp. We camped at Indiana Dunes State Park in a Motorhome.

Prairie Pines Campground, Rantoul, Illinois

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $26.00
Overall Rating:

Some GPS units may send you to the wrong location; but ours was accurate. Call to get directions if you feel it's necessary. The interesting thing about this campground was that you had to drive through the grass to be able to "pull-through" your campground; which is exactly what they want you to do. They even have you follow their golf-cart to get to your site doing this. Full hookups at all sites; everything worked as it should. The sites were a little close for such a big area. We camped at Prairie Pines Campground in a Motorhome.

Indian Creek COE, Monroe City, Missouri

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $9.00
Overall Rating:

The sites are huge with lots of space around them. Unfortunately many of them are pretty unlevel which will be an issue for longer RVs. Our 50amp connection didn't work; but, after calling the office, they came out the next day to fix it. As others have mentioned, watch out for the ticks. Beautiful place overall!

Sparrowfoot COE, Clinton, Missouri

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

As far as I can determine, there are no sites with 50amp service nor is there water or sewer at any site. What you get is 30amps, a picnic table, and a fire ring. But, for $10/night - that's not bad. There are a few water spigots scattered throughout the campground, if you get close to one of those you might be able to fill up your tank without having to move. Other than that... make sure you fill it up before you get it. We camped at Sparrowfoot COE in a Motorhome.

Riverside East COE, Burlington, Kansas

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $8.00
Overall Rating:

Our site (#52) is a back-in with a turn... it was easy enough to get into when no one was in site #53; however, with an RV in site #53 - there would be some concern about tail swing clipping the RV. Also... our site (and site #51) were unlevel. So bigger rigs (motorhomes) might have an issue. We also had to clean up our site... Other than that... great looking campground. We camped at Riverside East COE in a Motorhome.

Riverside COE, Marquette, Kansas

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $8.00
Overall Rating:

Although we're less than a 100ft from the river, there is no real view of it due to the trees between us. Other than that - an excellent campground. You can't pay for your site at the campground (even if you're coming as a "walk-in" you still need to pay for the site using recreation.gov). Lots of shade at most sites... no sewer at any of them.

Meade State Park, Meade, Kansas

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $12.00
Overall Rating:

We enjoyed this campground a lot... just about had it to ourselves during the middle of the week. The place was mostly clean (some debris in the lake). The dump was hidden at the back of the campground and we had to do a U-turn in a narrow lot to line up with it. We're told that there are no first come - first serve sights in KS State Parks. You can show up and if there is a site not reserved, you can stay at it. We camped at Meade State Park in a Motorhome.
