Davis Mountains State Park, Fort Davis, Texas

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

We are repeat visitors here. Extremely nice folks at check in, one of the park hosts came by and welcomed us to the campsite, and ranger programs were exceptionally nice. Good water pressure and electric service was very adequate. Very good bird viewing blinds for those so inclined. I think we had something like 50 plus TV channels with news and weather coverage we like to keep up with. Not an abundance of grass, but this is their dry season in an arid part of the world. Very good camping experience! We camped at Davis Mountains State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Be sure and go to the Twilight Program and Star Party at the McDonald Observatory. Well worth the trip and very interesting. Can be cool at that altitude in the spring, so take a jacket. Nice places to eat in Fort Davis and some interesting small shops and bookstores.

Balmorhea State Park, Balmorhea, Texas

Date of Stay: March, 2017 - $17.00
Overall Rating:      

Extremely nice and friendly staff to check us in. This was an overnight stay for us. Park was nice overall but cable TV didn't work and we always like to check local news and weather reports. The pool was beautiful and small rabbits entertained us at our site in the evening while coyotes howled in the distance. We were near restrooms and the doors slammed continuously. Maybe the door closing mechanism needed adjusting and/or replacement. Water pressure adequate and electric power level very good. Not much grass but this is an arid part of the world. We camped at Balmorhea State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Carlsbad KOA, Carlsbad, New Mexico

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $50.00
Overall Rating:      

.Spacious, level sites and nice trees for this part of the arid world. Some of the best barbeque we've had delivered to our site! Electric power good according to our meter, and water pressure very good. At dusk, small rabbits came out to entertain us. On the down side, wifi was poor to non-existant, and the chlorine in the water was way too high for us to drink. We stayed here going north and coming back south the next week, and would probably stay here again. We camped at Carlsbad KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Santa Fe KOA, Santa Fe, New Mexico

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $48.00
Overall Rating:      

A pleasant park. An arid part of the world with little grass, and we really appreciated the trees; however, some near the roadways could have been trimmed a bit as they drug across our trailer on the way out. Electric service, as per our meter, was marginal and it was a/c or microwave - not both at the same time. Water pressure was good. Wifi was useable, but not strong. The staff was very helpful with suggestions on things in the area to see. We would certainly come back. We camped at Santa Fe KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Parkview Riverside RV Park, Concan, Texas

Date of Stay: April, 2016 - $38.00
Overall Rating:      

We are repeat visitors. Many riverside sites have utilities for nose-in motor homes on opposite side for trailers so if in trailer, need to run lines underneath to connect. Not a problem for us. Sewer connection on both sides; however. Very nice on-site store for limited food, RV repair parts. I had problem with utilities - my fault, but park service man was there in minutes to help. Good service, beautiful location, friendly folks! We camped at Parkview Riverside RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Deer Springs RV Park, Mayhill, New Mexico

Date of Stay: August, 2015 - $18.00
Overall Rating:      

We are repeat visitors as are most of the other campers with whom we visited. All we met were cordial and great folks. We were in the 30 amp side which is face to face, but enjoyed visiting with the "neighbors". Water pressure and electric service were within tolerance but a bit on the low side - if we ran the microwave and the a/c, service dropped to the low side, but we seldom ran the a/c, ran the heater instead each night! No cable, but no problem getting a signal with our dish. Most all sites have nice trees and the surrounding area is beautiful. A little tight maneuvering with some of the trees but not hard and we were glad to see the trees! Wifi appeared to be limited during peak times, but adequate. Office not always staffed, but the host was easily found. 6500 foot elevation, cool, and quiet! We plan on coming back! We camped at Deer Springs RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Davis Mountains State Park, Fort Davis, Texas

Date of Stay: April, 2015 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

We are repeat visitors. Good electric service and water pressure. Excellent cable tv. Park and office staff were the greatest! Area routinely checked and we felt safe. Wonderful bird viewing blinds for bird watchers, and very nice ranger programs during the week. Very quiet, especially at night. Nice shade and cool temperatures during April. And we had a decent meal at the Black Bear Lodge. We'll be back! We camped at Davis Mountains State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Balmorhea State Park, Balmorhea, Texas

Date of Stay: April, 2015 - $17.00
Overall Rating:      

We stopped here on our way to Davis Mountains. Good choice! Electric service and water pressure very good. Cable TV reception wasn't top notch, but quite adequate. We had an excellent site with a cover and table. Low brush and limited trees, but this is an arid part of the world. Cottontail rabbits visited us every day. Coots (ducks) everywhere too. The pool was great! They have a deep area and a shallow area, perfect for snorkeling and just loafing. Great staff! We'll come back! We camped at Balmorhea State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Parkview Riverside RV Park, Concan, Texas

Date of Stay: September, 2014 - $36.00
Overall Rating:      

Rates reflect Good Sam discount and non-summer time period. About half the riverfront sites have utilities located for nose-in motor homes, but can be used by backed-in travel trailers if you don't mind snaking your lines under the trailer. Sewer caps are on both sides; however. Couldn't ask for a better view and the river was very nice and clean, but it got noisy on the weekend from the Garner State Park crowd that is just across from the RV park. Sites not quite level side to side, but ours was remedied by our 2 inch blocks. Fore and aft was fine. Very nice small store on site and nice small restaurants in Concan and Leakey. Staff was friendly, but did charge an extra $2 for WiFi - wish they would add it in beforehand so it wouldn't seem like an "extra" charge. Water pressure and electric service were quite adequate. Verizon didn't work very well, but AT&T was fine. We camped at Parkview Riverside RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Big Pine Campground, Custer, South Dakota

Date of Stay: June, 2014 - $33.00
Overall Rating:      

What a wonderful park! Extremely congenial hosts checked us in and escorted us to our site and helped us back in. Beautiful, quiet area in the tall pines. Centrally located to tour the Black Hills. We had good electric power and water pressure, but never ran the a/c - ran the heater instead! They even deliver firewood to your site. Only down side is no cable - I did manage to snake a long cable to our dish and get it between the pines for service. Good Wi-Fi service. We would sure like to come back! We camped at Big Pine Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Limon KOA, Limon, Colorado

Date of Stay: June, 2014 - $43.00
Overall Rating:      

The hosts seemed indifferent to our choosing to stay at their KOA. Sites were level enough to where we did not have to unhook. Electric power was marginal according to our meter, but water pressure was quite high. Use your water regulator here. We might have stayed elsewhere, but there isn't much else close by. We'll probably come back next time through as it is good enough for overnight. We camped at Limon KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Amarillo Ranch RV Park, Amarillo, Texas

Date of Stay: June, 2014 - $33.00
Overall Rating:      

We checked in and found the hosts to be very cordial. We were guided to our site and the gentleman stayed to be sure we could hook up okay. Some traffic noise but we ran the a/c and didn't mind it. Voltage was marginal according to our meter as everyone was running the a/c in the Texas heat. Water pressure was good. Not a lot of shade or grass, but this is an arid part of Texas. Somewhat unusual layout as this probably was formerly a mobile home park, but no problem getting in or out. Coffee and donuts in the morning! We stayed overnight going north and coming back south and will certainly come back. We camped at Amarillo Ranch RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Davis Mountains State Park, Fort Davis, Texas

Date of Stay: April, 2014 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

We were in the full hook-up section which had cable TV which is really nice! Water pressure was good as was electric service. However, sewer connections were above grade and unusual. Good birding location with two bird blinds with water features. We had a pair of elf owls visit our campsite (number 6) for 3 nights in a row at dusk which was a big hit with us and our fellow campers. Excellent food at the Black Bear Restaurant at the Lodge. Each staff member with whom we had contact was absolutely great. We plan on returning! We camped at Davis Mountains State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Lost Alaskan RV Park, Alpine, Texas

Date of Stay: October, 2013 - $32.00
Overall Rating:      

We are return visitors to the Lost Alaskan. Excellent location just north of Alpine. Very nice hosts on check-in, and a guide to your site. And the gentlemen stayed to make sure we were adequately situated. Sites were gravel, but level, electrical service very good, water pressure very adequate. Nice quiet park and a good base for visiting the area. One down side is that all the sites face west. Loved the trees in this arid part of the world! We camped at Lost Alaskan RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Deer Springs RV Park, Mayhill, New Mexico

Date of Stay: August, 2013 - $17.00
Overall Rating:      

Being from hot and dry central Texas, we enjoyed our stay because it was cool, the grass was green, and we had a cooling shower of rain nearly every day. No cable, so bring your dish: no problem in getting a signal. Nice trees everywhere. We initially didn't like the face to face sites on the east side (30 amp sites), but it was nice to chat with our neighbors. Many repeat visitors here and all park residents we met were friendly and cordial. Office not always staffed, but a park host was always available. Very quiet and restful park. Sites were gravel, level, and with adequate room. A nice small cafe and a small convenience store can be found in Mayhill. We would certainly come back. We camped at Deer Springs RV Park in a Travel Trailer.
