Live Oak Campground (Ronald W. Caspers Wilderness Park), San Juan Capistrano, California

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $21.00
Overall Rating:

This is a very reasonable and clean park especially for this part of California. Provides for easy access to San Clemente, Laguna, and connected areas. The park staff was friendly and helpful. The sites were large and included power and water, no septic. We were in a 37 foot Class A with tow and tow dolly and had plenty of room, back in site. Over the air television is adequate but there is NO WIFI at all. Cellphone coverage was good 80 dBm or better, AT&T. We were visiting family so did not use many of the park's amenities but there is trails and sponsored activities available. This is a local county park so is frequented by locals for weekends. We were in Ortega Flats which is kind of close to the main road, Ortega highway. This road is pretty well used, especially by the local motorcyclist as it is very curvy and hilly and they love to race up and down the road. All in all would stay there again but there is one really big caution. This park is unusual as it has a pretty strict pet policy. The policy is NO PETS. Pretty unusual in my experience. They justify this by saying there is a danger of pets attracting cougars that are in the area. I guess I can understand this with dogs or animals that are allowed out of owners RV's but animals that are never allowed out it seems a bit restrictive. If you miss this in their information you could be sadly surprised. Since we had traveled all the way from Florida and prepaid we were given an exemption. We have camped all over the country including cougar country before. Never seen this strict of a rule before. We camped at Live Oak Campground (Ronald W. Caspers Wilderness Park) in a Motorhome.

Cochiti Lake COE , Pena Blanca, New Mexico

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

This is a nice park in the hills south of Santa Fe. It is on a reservoir but don't anticipate being on the water, near the water or even being able to have much of a view. The sites are spacious, with a shelter and table. There are absolutely NO FIRES allowed. Over the air TV is pretty good, about 8 clear channels. There is no WIFI at all. Cell service with AT&T was good. SItes were paved, several pull-thrus and large back-ins. This is an Army Corp of Engineers site so it is well done. The only complaint we had was there was no one working there. Weird. Of the 10 days we were there, the campground office was only staffed one day. Tried to change some things regarding our reservations and couldn't. Tried the Visitor Center and the one volunteer pretty much had no clue. This park is about 20 minutes from Santa Fe and an easy drive. The reservoir can handle some good size boats but it is a trek to the launch site or shore. It really was a nice place to stop and stop looking through a windshield for a while. Santa Fe was a great town. Really enjoyed Canyon Road. We camped at Cochiti Lake COE in a Motorhome.

Lake Mead RV Village, Boulder City, Nevada

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

This is a large RV Park on the shore of Lake Meade. There are many full-time homes in the park. You are several hundred yards from the shore of lake Meade, views are limited. You are close to Las Vegas (30 minutes) Hoover damn and other locations in the area. We had a easy access pull thru but sites are close together with no shade. Fire pits are available but ours was in an inconvenient location, near our front tire. Biggest distraction for me was the constant drone of the site seeing helicopters over the Lake and Damn. Starts about 8 am and goes all day. This is a National Park with several hiking paths in the park. We did the Railway trail. Easy hike with nice vistas of the lake and the opportunity to walk through several old railway tunnels that serviced the dam construction. Nice way to build an appetite. Would stay again. We camped at Lake Mead RV Village in a Motorhome.

Elephant Butte Lake State Park, Lions Beach Campground, Elephant Butte, New Mexico

Date of Stay: March, 2018 - $28.00
Overall Rating:

Beautiful Park and well laid out. This was our first time here and if back in the area would definitely stay again. This time of year it is a little cool out and can get windy but from what I have learned that is the southwest in March. They have several areas to park in. First, they have the enhanced sites which include pull-throughs, sewer, water, electric. There is some over the air TV but not much. WIFI, cell service was iffy. They also have boondocking sites closer to the water which I wish I had known about before. Fairly easy access to these sites even for big rigs. Was fun watching the wildlife. Quail, roadrunners, rabbits, and hares. One rabbit visited our site every evening between 4 and 5 pm, comical. Not a lot to do in the area early season but a great place to relax and take some walks. As others have noted good value compared to other government parks in the southwest. Only compaint was a noise issue. One camper in Quail Run played his music really loud. I am not an old crank and actually he played the same music i listen to but from 5 sites away it was still way too loud. Called the "ranger on duty" but all you were able to do was leave a voice message. Never showed up. Finally someone went down and asked him to turn it down. Of course it was repeated every night we were there. Play your music but not everyone wants to hear it on a quiet desert night while looking at the lake and stars. We camped at Elephant Butte Lake State Park, Lions Beach Campground in a Motorhome.

Braunig Lake RV Resort, Elmendorf, Texas

Date of Stay: March, 2018 - $28.00
Overall Rating:

Visited this RV resort in early March 2018 and used it as a jumping off point for San Antonio. Great location, downtown San Antonio was only 15 minutes away with easy on and off the freeway. If you left after 9 am you missed the rush hour. The park has all the amenities we needed. Water, electric, septic, cable, and wifi. The wifi wasn't a T1 line but was adequate. Could actually stream during late night hours. This is a large resort with many full-timers, seasonal and plenty of transients. They can handle all lengths with plenty of pull thrus. Didn't use any of the other amenities like cafe and fishing pond. Laundry was a card only but rates were reasonable. Would stay here again if in the area. We camped at Braunig Lake RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Obviously, don't miss the downtown river walk, also really enjoyed the Japanise Tea garden on the North end of town. If you are gluten free highly recommend the Five Point local restaurant in San Antonio. Check their hours as they are not open all the time

Houston East RV Resort, Baytown, Texas

Date of Stay: March, 2018 - $33.00
Overall Rating:

Very Nice park located right along I-10 so you will get some highway noise. Very easy to get into and out of. Most sites are pull-throughs and they can handle very large rigs. This park is situated in East Houston and makes that area very accessible. This is an adult park with plenty of rules strictly enforced. So very quiet and clean. Quite a few long term users plus us transients. All hookups and in good condition and easily accessible. No fire pits and sites are kind of close. TV is basic but strong signal. Only complaint is the WIFI. In this day and age those of us that are on the road alot ( months) relish good stable WIFI. They advertise free WIFI for transients but it is deceptive. It is free for only one device. For an additional 3 devices it is 4 dollars a day. Usage is modulated to allow for more users but still had frequent stoppages. Cell phone (AT&T) was good. Will stay there again. 37 foot motorhome with tow. We camped at Houston East RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Shelburne Camping, Shelburne, Vermont

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $34.00
Overall Rating:

This was a last minute check-in, as our prior reservation had to be cancelled. The park is just south of Burlington allowing access to Burlington, Stowe, Woodbury. Our site was tight to back into but we were able to park our Motorhome, car and tow dolly. Services were very good, we had strong wifi with our booster and cable. The cable head was quite a stretch so we had to borrow cable from the office which they had available. DId not use any of the amenities, so have no comment on them. Lots of seasonals in our area, but the park for the most part was quiet. Sites had lots of trees and shade that we appreciated, hated the open fields. Don't use satellite TV, so not an issue. Looks like the owners are trying to update and clean up, so this park is a work in progress. We camped at Shelburne Camping in a Motorhome.

Timberland Acres RV Park, Trenton, Maine

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

Large park with very easy access, roads are easy to navigate and sites are long with plenty of pull throughs. However sites are kind of close together. Seasonals are along the tree line while transients are in the middle in an open field. Basic utilities are satisfactory, need a sponge ring for septic. Park has wifi which all though is regulated is fairly strong and sufficient for email, searching, news, etc. No cable. Over air is about 10 channels. Park is located approx 20 minutes from Bar Harbor with very easy access. Office is well run and efficient. Owners take great care in maintaining sites, facilities and order. Sites are fairly close together, our picnic table was approx 4 feet from neighbors septic. We camped at Timberland Acres RV Park in a Motorhome.

Merry Knoll Campground, Clayton, New York

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $44.00
Overall Rating:

This park is located in Clayton NY on the banks of the St Lawrence River. The park is narrow. The area that transients stay and leads down to the bank. Most of the sites in this area have a view of the river if you sit out in front of your RV. The sites are large with room for your RV and you can either park your car at the end of your RV or next to it. There is a spot for a fire ring , we didn't use it because it would have been too close to our car. The daily rate is a little high but is in the usual range for this area. The park does not provide cable but over the air you can get about 110 channels. The park does offer internet but it is weak and of limited band width. Water and power are suitable. Sewer is an angled PVC pipe in the ground with no threads. The owner is very attentive, friendly and is very accessible. Frequently see him talking to guests. Park is in the Thousand Island area so easy access to the boat tours which is the main tourist attraction in the area. Boating is a big thing, so is fishing. We camped at Merry Knoll Campground in a Motorhome.

Sned-Acres Family Campground (formerly Ridgewood Campground), Ovid, New York

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

37 foot Motorhome. July 2017. Park is located near Cayuga Lake near Ovid New York. Park is easy to get to and navigation within the park is adequante. Transient parking is seperate from seasonal and the drive through are long and not crowded. There is no shade and you have a long side facing the afternoon sun, gets pretty warm. Not much for view, there is a small pool and a couple of ponds and a little used frisbee golf field. Services were adequate. They do offer free wifi that is adequate, can get slow depending on how busy the park is. No cable but there is good over air with about 1o channels. The park is situated in the middle of wine country of the Finger Lakes region. You are within an hour of several wineries, Ithaca, Watkins Glen and other small towns. Would stay again even though the rates were a little high for services but is within the norm for that region. We camped at Sned-Acres Family Campground (formerly Ridgewood Campground) in a Motorhome.

Hickory Hollow Campground, Rockwood, Pennsylvania

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $39.00
Overall Rating:

This is a very nice park situated in the Laurel Highlands of Pennsylvania. The park was very easy to maneuver our 37 foot MH with a tow dolly. Sites were hard pack and the transients are pretty much separate from the seasonals. Our site had a bit too much slope for the picnic table and our door opened up right into a electrical power meter tower. Not attractive or convenient, but have had worse. The park provides basic cable and Internet which was surprisingly good. On a 1 to 10 scale it was an easy 8 with strong signal. Also over the air TV is available but can get funny with all the hills and weather. The park is clean and well maintained and not crowded at all. Small fishing pond on site and I saw several people using it. Don't know if they caught anything. The management was very nice and efficient. We arrived slightly after hours and they had our paperwork in a box outside waiting for us. Would definitely go back as i really enjoy this part of Pennsylvania. We camped at Hickory Hollow Campground in a Motorhome.

Leisure Valley RV Resort, Decatur, Michigan

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

This park is older and run down, has a lot of potential though. Proprietors make their money from long term rentals not for transient. It does not appear that the owners are very hands on. Other than check-in never saw anyone except for a guy mowing once a week. There does not appear to be any enforcement of any rules, policies or conditions. If you don't mind the conditions or don't spend a lot of time at your site this could be a good value. Pro: Good location for exploring Southwestern Michigan. Lot of trees, very shady and there is sufficient overhead clearance for big rigs however it can be very tight maneuvering into a campsite. Some turns can be very tight. Utilities are sufficient. Most sites have 50 amp service, water, and septic. Picnic tables but the fire rings are Semi truck rims, makes them movable but very messy. Over air TV reception is pretty good, approx 12-15 channels between Kalamazoo and Grand Rapids. Because of the tree coverage could have difficulty with satellite TV but our Sirius worked fine. Absolutely no Internet. Cell Service was good and steady. There is a pool but didn't go. Security for park is a gate with key pad. There is also a small store on site but didn't go there either. Not much else for entertainment Lots of ponds and a stream, need maintenance. Even considering the shade, ponds and the amount of rain this area had gotten the mosquito nemesis was not too bad. Cons This park is mostly for yearly sites. The majority of the sites are small trailers that have been there for years with extensive landscaping and structures. Lots of children playing on the road. Not a problem, just drive slow. Weekends can get busy of course with groups coming in and camping in mass. The pics posted by the owners are from a very different time. We camped at Leisure Valley RV Resort in a Motorhome.

The roads coming toward the park from I-94 can be extremely rough particularly CR699. Suggest taking Hwy 51 in.

Area is great for exploring southwest Michigan. Best trip was Gilmore Auto Museum. Also enjoyed Kalamzoo Air Zoo.
