Houghton / Letchworth KOA, Houghton, New York

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $53.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed 7 nights in one of the pull-through spots in the back end of the campground by the lake. The campground is very spacious with trails to walk on and camp spots well spaced. The grounds are immaculate and it is very obvious the owners take great pride in their KOA. The different spots are well laid out to take maximum advantage of view and to give as much private space between spots as possible. The catch and release fishing lake is nice and I noticed a number of fish being caught. Owners are very helpful. Lots of available cable channels available. Wifi is not available but easy to get both AT&T and Verizon service. Close to Letchworth State Park which is amazing. Would certainly stay here again.

Niagara Falls / Grand Island KOA, Grand Island, New York

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $107.00
Overall Rating:

We camped in a 40' motorhome for 4 nights, including a weekend. Upon arrival we checked in and were escorted to our site which we just barely fit in. Despite it being advertised as a 48' back in, our rear end touched the hedge in back and our mirrors were just 2 feet from the busy park road. Our toad had to be parked in the camp area on the grass, thus making the small outside space seem smaller. When setting up my power regulator would not engage due to low, 90 volts on leg 2 of the electric service. We called the front desk and finally got a maintenance man to come take a look, the breaker was bad and after a bit of time he got a new one installed. Water pressure was low at just less than 40psi so we used our rv water pump to supplement the flow. Cable service was good. Internet wifi was adequate. The sewer riser was so close to the wet bay it was almost too long even fully compressed. The general condition of the landscape in this area was not good. The grass was dried out and had not been cut in a good while. Tall weeds growing around some of the rvs parked on a full time basis. Although the original park on the front had nice large and shaded sites, the back sites, both pull-through and back in were extremely cramped and had more dirt than grass. Distance between some of the pull-through sites in the back section was only about 8 feet and left very little room to enjoy the outdoors. The dog parks were too small to use and there was a dog walk that paralleled the busy and loud freeway. This appears to be a case of where greed meets opportunity. The price for our short and cramped back in at over $100 per night is an insult. I understand paying extra for location, close to Niagara Falls; however, these sites would be substandard by any measure. We have camped in over 50 different RV parks in the last year and this was the worst. Will not be back and can not recommend. We camped at Niagara Falls / Grand Island KOA in a Motorhome.

Chautauqua Lake KOA , Dewittville, New York

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $55.00
Overall Rating:

This is a large but very well run KOA. The owner was extremely helpful and accommodating. Upon arrival she took us for a quick tour in her golf cart for a look at available sites. We had originally booked a pull-through patio site but, after our tour, we selected a very large back in that backed up to a view of Chautauqua Lake. Site was extremely neat and was thick green grass that the dogs loved to lay in. The front part of the park has many seasonal rigs but they are extremely neat and the residents very friendly and helpful. Trash is picked up at your site all throughout the day. Even though we camped 10 days during the summer, the park was not full. The bath and laundry facilities were top notch. Great playground and pool and several dog parks. Great cable but spotty wifi. This is a great location for touring the Chautauqua Lake region and the Erie Wine Trail. All in all, a great park that we would certainly return to. We camped at Chautauqua Lake KOA in a Motorhome.

Summersville Lake Retreat, Mt. Nebo, West Virginia

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $43.00
Overall Rating:

There is so much to like about this campground. We were fortunate enough to secure a 50 amp full service pull-through for our 15 day stay. The campground is very spacious and has incredible views towards the lake. There are many places to walk through the forest that you would think you were miles from civilization. The folks in the office are super helpful and the grounds are immaculate. On the negative side, wifi is non-existent. During our 2 week stay we could rarely connect and when we could the speed was so slow even emails were next to impossible. We burned up a lot of data on our phone plans. Although we had sewer hook-up, many sites do not have sewer and there is no onsite sewer dump which can be problematic for someone wanting to stay more than a couple of days and not in one of the pull-through sites. Also there is no cable; however, we had satellite and reception was good. There is no laundry facility in the campground which can also be an issue for someone wanting to stay more than a day or so. During our stay most of the campers were here for the weekend or only a nightly stay so lack of laundry and sewer was probably not an issue. There are also many tent sites nestled in the forest which look awesome. This is a great location for exploring the West Virginia countryside. We loved Lewisburg and Charleston as well as many of the parks and lookouts within easy travel time. Would definitely stay here again as long as full hookup site was available.

The restaurants in nearby Summersville are your typical fast food places. There is a great little spot in Mount Nebo only a couple of miles away, Craft Kings that offers craft beer and great food. There are also nice spots in Lewisburg and Charleston in you are up for touring a bit.

Venture River RV Park, Eddyville, Kentucky

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

This is a fairly new RV park located next to the Venture River Water Park. As this is a new park, there is no shade available since the many trees that have been planted are years away from offering any cover. That being said there is excellent satellite reception. There is a stocked lake that you can fish from that is nice. The restrooms are clean as are the showers. We had good wifi service maybe because we were located near the office. On the downside, there is no cable or laundry facilities. The sites are mostly level and are of crushed rock. The space between sites is adequate and is nicely cut grass. The office has a few supplies but is locked most of the time, even during the 4th of July week. This park is located in a fairly busy area with an interstate close by and a number of businesses in close proximity; however, it was quiet at night. There is a nice playscape for the kids but no pool. This park has potential but the landscaping needs to mature and, for the price, cable and laundry facilities should be added. Great for a place to stop on the way to a final destination or if you are a water park fan. We camped at Venture River RV Park in a Motorhome.

La Hacienda RV Resort & Cottages, Austin, Texas

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed for five weeks and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We were in Section B and had long and wide tree shaded spot. The park is large and well layed out with many amenities. Office staff and grounds folks were top notch and very helpful. Only two issues, the WiFi while good will drop and have to be reselected upon each use and the big one was a big lack of usable dog run/Park. At one time they had very large area complete with dog wash. This area is now padlocked as it is over a septic drain field that needs repair. The many, many dogs are left with 2 small areas that are disgusting due to the pee and poop from so many dogs in such a small area. This needs attention.

Location is close to Lake Travis but traffic on Hiway 620 which is the east/west road towards the park is very congested. Will certainly be back and recommend to fellow RV folks. We camped at La Hacienda RV Resort & Cottages in a Motorhome.

Kingsland Slab RV Camp, Kingsland, Texas

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

This park is situated on 750 feet of the Llano River on the "slab" The slab is a granite outcropping over which the river flows. It has many interesting features and is very popular with the locals. On a summer day there can be hundreds of people parking and wading/swimming the river just steps from the campsite. The campsite is a beautiful piece of property and is well laid out; however, in dire need of some TLC. The roads are essentially dirt and compacted granite. There is a good bit of erosion on many sites due to recent rains and a number of sites are in bad shape and in need of leveling and weed clearing. There appear to be a number of full timers with loads of junk outside their campers despite the park rules stating the sites must be kept clear of trash and clutter. There is also a junk storage lot in the park with every type of broken or otherwise useless machinery scattered about. As you enter the park you are greeted by a broken down auto with a broken windshield and tow straps still attached. Not the welcome we were anticipating. For the price, $40 per night, the park is bare bones with the exception of water, electric and sewer. There are no restrooms, showers, cable or wifi. Given the rate structure, this park appears more appealing to full timers, $40 per night versus $440 for the month. The park is pet friendly; however, many of the full timers allow their dogs to run loose, despite the rules stating all dogs must be on leash. This made it difficult for us with our leashed dogs having the loose dogs running about. Also, doubt there is any dog droppings being picked up from all these loose dogs, so watch your step. We camped at Kingsland Slab RV Camp in a Motorhome.

Snake River RV Park & Campground, Idaho Falls, Idaho

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

As others have mentioned this is a converted KOA park complete with the small KOA type cabins. The park is next to the Snake River; however, there is no access from the park to the river, in fact you can not even see it from the park. We got a pull-through site on the end of the row and it had a nice grassy area. However, many of the sites, particularly the back-ins, are extremely close together; many have no picnic table or other amenities. It is a bit unusual but the park's website does not have a park layout map or at least I could not find one. I am attaching a photo of the map. To avoid extreme congestion I would pay the extra $7 per night and get a pull-through with a little extra space. The park personnel are extremely helpful and the maintenance staff is constantly working on irrigating the grassy areas which is a real task with no in-ground irrigation system and the heat that Idaho Falls gets in the summer. Given the circumstances I think they do a great job. Located in Idaho Falls, the park is typically not a destination stay so the daily turnover is large. One potential issue is the park has over 30 tent sites that are packed tight as sardines. Although there were not a ton of tenters while we were there it could be an issue. Would not want to be staying in the park August 21 for the total eclipse. Facilities are well kept and they have a nice little store in the office. Wi-Fi worked in the morning after everyone cleared out, totally useless when park is full, which is typical to every park I have stayed at lately. Good AT&T and Verizon service for both voice and data. One pet peeve, the dog area is full of dog poop. I see many people not picking up after their dogs, which is disgusting. Must be something about the area because there is a very large, fenced dog park about a mile away that is also full of dog poop. Some pet owners are really jerks. We camped at Snake River RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

Orchard Hill RV Park, Kelowna, British Columbia

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

What a hidden gem. Just minutes from the hustle and bustle of Kelowna, this small park is actually a working farm. There are both back-in and pull-throughs. The sites are long and wide and have good plant screening between the sites. The owners are super nice people and a wealth of information about the area. With the rain and cooler temps, we were a couple of weeks early for fruit and veggie harvests. The park typically has a great list of farm grown stuff available. Will have to come back just for that. The park has great views of the surrounding valley and minutes from the lake. Would definitely revisit. We camped at Orchard Hill RV Park in a Motorhome.

Spring Creek RV Campground, Canmore, Alberta

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

First the good, the park is located next to a flowing creek and surrounded by majestic peaks on all sides. It is only minutes from the town of Canmore. We arrived for a five night stay with a full service pull through site reserved. The site we were assigned was at the end of a row that butted up against a falling down fence that separated us from a row of mobile homes, most in some state of disrepair. We were at the back end of the mobile homes so got to view their trash heaps and broken down trampolines and other junk. There was also an extreme slope towards the fence. We went back to the office and asked for an alternate site and were assigned a back-in that was next to the creek. The sites are extremely narrow and not at all adequate for a motorhome. The sites are so short in most cases that tow vehicles are parked parallel to the street blocking part of the road. The end of my patio shade was inches from the slide out of my neighbor. The park is also very low in spots and floods with any rain shower creating a very deep mess that stretches completely across the road. The narrow area between our rig and the neighbors is under water at the moment. There are many, many mobile homes sprinkled all through the park. Many of the permanent residents drive at very high speeds through the park creating a dangerous situation for children and pets on a leash. Wifi consists of a hotspot in the office and is useless. There is no cable available. All in all the incredible views are offset by the numerous mobile homes and extremely crowded park. Will look elsewhere in the future. Would not return.

Elwha Dam RV Park, Port Angeles, Washington

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

Very nice RV park located very close to the Hurricane Ridge entrance to Olympic National Park. The park has a very eclectic layout with something for every type of traveler. We stayed in a long pull through with our rig that accommodated the 40' RV and our auto. Utilities are well laid out and worked without issue. The wi-fi was a bit hit or miss depending on the number of others accessing it. Owner's are super helpful and a wealth of information about the area. Great access to everything that is Olympic National Park and the Elwha River area. Port Angeles is just a few miles away and has excellent restaurants and shops if you want a diversion.
