Sundance High Plains RV Park, Lamar, Colorado

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $31.00
Overall Rating:

Extremely friendly guys in the office. Internet was fast. Nice dog park with artificial grass. Yes, it is gravel and dirt and scrub, but that is the environment here. Very pretty views all around. Sites are close but on the utilities side so the only time I saw my neighbors was when I was on that side. Wish they had Direct TV, antenna only picked up 11 channels and only 3 came in. Would definitely stay here again. We camped at Sundance High Plains RV Park in a Motorhome.

Rocking A RV Park, Vernon, Texas

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

Lady in office was very friendly and efficient. Guy, however, was unfriendly and grumpy. He did escort me to my site, made sure the breakers were off, and drove away without saying a word. Saw him later and asked him a question and he gave me a crappy answer. Site was level and grounds were very clean, lots of room between sites. I never heard the train other people have talked about. Not bad for a stopover, but he was either having a bad day or just didn't like me. We camped at Rocking A RV Park in a Motorhome.

Loveland RV Resort, Loveland, Colorado

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $51.00
Overall Rating:

The lady in the office was wonderfully nice. The place was very clean and has a fenced in dog park. The wifi was very good and there are a lot of trees. But... the spaces are VERY close together. My neighbor had a crying baby inside that I could hear in my motorhome over my AC and TV. That is how close they are. My spot had absolutely zero water pressure, the water trickled out of the shower and the kitchen I could not even rinse out a glass of water. Might stay here again for one night in a pinch. We camped at Loveland RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Perry Lake Campground, Perry, Oklahoma

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

Beautiful views of the lake. Small place, city owned, with about 10 sites. Grass needed to be mowed... was mowed by the lake but looks like they forgot the RV area. Had to hunt down the sewer connection, it was buried in the tall grass. Water hookups are in a box in the ground so you have to get on your knees in the tall grass. Very quiet and cheap. Would definitely spend the night there again. Close to interstate but couldn't hear traffic. We camped at Perry Lake Campground in a Motorhome.

Lakeside Casino Resort RV Park, Osceola, Iowa

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

Dumpy little park at a dumpy little casino. Most of the pads are cracked and broken, the 50 amp plug at our site was melted. Leave money in box, papers said attendant on duty but never saw one, saw security drive through next morning. A couple of people look like they lost all their money and can't leave.. looked like they had been there awhile. Grass overgrown and weedy, litter all over. If you want to gamble and sleep, it is okay. We camped at Lakeside Casino Resort RV Park in a Motorhome.

Deer Run Resort, Elkader, Iowa

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $39.00
Overall Rating:

Extremely nice lady in office. Extremely clean and spacious park. Shower building was cleanest I have ever seen, with spacious individual shower rooms. Site was very deep, concrete with concrete patio and nice table. Highly recommend and will definitely stay again. Must use satellite, no cable (bad provider in area) and no antenna reception. Our GPS took us somewhere else in town, but we stumbled upon it. I cannot recommend this place highly enough! We camped at Deer Run Resort in a Motorhome.

Apple Creek Campground , De Pere, Wisconsin

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $76.00
Overall Rating:

First, be aware the overnight rate doubles for home Packer games. Small, old park... not very clean and not much grass. Site was pretty level.Spaces tight together. Water/electric only at ours. Might be okay for $20 but definitely not for $76! We camped at Apple Creek Campground in a Motorhome.

Griff's Valley View RV Park & Campground, Altoona, Iowa

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

Like others have said, it is a little strange to have no office on site and have them guide you in my phone. But, the place was beautiful, everything was clean, landscaping was manicured and everything was well taken care of. A picnic table would have been nice but not a requirement. Lady was very friendly over the phone and when I asked about a receipt, emailed me one within minutes. Very, very quiet at night and quite relaxing. Will definitely stay here again when I am in the area. We camped at Griff's Valley View RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

Pine Harbor Campground, Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin

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

Pretty much the same as others have said, small place run by the owners, lots of seasonal people. Owners were super nice and helpful. My spot was dirt and grass but very level and easy to back in to. Everything was very clean and tidy. Water and electric only at my site but that was not a problem, dump station on the way out. Very pretty and quiet surroundings, lots of nice trees. Would definitely stay here again. We camped at Pine Harbor Campground in a Motorhome.

Driftwood Campgrounds, Quincy, Illinois

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

Very clean, concrete pads and patios at site, very level. Owner very friendly and helpful. Lots of big open spaces for kids to run or walking dogs. Quiet... heard a train far away a couple of times but didn't bother me. Huge park across the street. Seasonal (or full-time) campers sites were clean and organized, not an eyesore like a lot of places. Definitely staying here again. Wifi extremely slow but owner acknowledged this at registration. We camped at Driftwood Campgrounds in a Motorhome.

Viking Village Campground & Resort, Stoughton, Wisconsin

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $50.00
Overall Rating:

This is a huge place, and I don't mean in the number of sites. There are two large grassy fields in front (and about a hundred geese when I was there), lots of space between sites, and lots of grass and trees all around. Nice little miniature golf course, nice pool area, and plenty of room for kids to run around. Lady at office was super friendly and helpful. Park was extremely clean and well cared for, grass was mowed and trees were trimmed. Only there for one night but will definitely stay there again.

Salina KOA, Salina, Kansas

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

As others have said, small, older, established park. Staff was very friendly on check-in, they were having a network issue but didn't get flustered and apologized a lot. Three dog parks on site, one of which was very large. Grass mowed, trash kept picked up, park very clean, wifi worked well. Would definitely stay there again. We camped at Salina KOA in a Motorhome.

Mount Rushmore KOA at Palmer Gulch, Hill City, South Dakota

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $70.00
Overall Rating:

Repeating some of what others have said: The park is HUGE with lots of activities going on. There is never lack of something to do. Two pools, one adult only. Stores and restaurants on site. Restaurant was not bad... not the best I've ever had, but not bad. My site was a back-in close to the kids play area, but the noise was never too bad... it kind of blended in with the surroundings. My site was very large with a lot of grass on both sides and behind. Some of them were pretty close together, though. Fenced in dog park that needs a little care like filling in the cracks and holes, I thought my dog tore up her knee once. Staff was very friendly, everyone I interacted with was friendly and knowledgeable. Someone was always driving around cleaning or picking up. I was close to one of the bathrooms and it seemed like a crew came by 3 or 4 times a day to clean them. Car rental on site... I paid 70 bucks for a day for a car with 110,000 miles on it, but it was clean and drove well. Rental guy was good about providing directions and advising on points of interest. They do charge $3 a day per dog. There is also a $10 per day resort fee. I get that running a place like this requires a lot, but just add it to the cost of a site and don't throw in all the add-ons. I didn't use many of the "resort" features, but still had to pay 10 bucks a day over the price to stay there. Don't know about other carriers, but there is NO Verizon signal here, except when I would be out walking my dog I would walk through somewhere that got enough of a signal a test might come through. No cable TV (at least at my site) and no antenna reception. Phone and TV are not their fault and are not counted in this review, just mentioned. It was actually quite nice having no phone or TV for a few days. Wifi was available but was achingly slow. All in all, a great place, especially if you have kids, and I would stay there again. We camped at Mount Rushmore KOA at Palmer Gulch in a Motorhome.
