Ditto Landing, Huntsville, Alabama

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

We stayed 3 nights (total cost $66). Campground office is the same as the marina fuel dock. It's a relatively small campground with lots of trees. That's good. But the place seemed to suffer from a profound lack of maintenance: 1) The road circling the campground was breaking up. There were many potholes including one in front of our site approx 2' x 3' x 10" deep. I was able to avoid it, but that wasn't easy. 2) The water connection was in a box below grade. The handle on the water spigot was stripped -- I had to use a pair of pliers to turn the water on/off. 3) The grounds were not mowed. There was a lot of tree detritus (small branches, twigs, etc) all over the ground. 4) Several sites (most?) appeared to have tire tracks next to the RV blacktop pad as if RVs had difficulty maneuvering in / out of the site (I had to jockey around a bit but managed to stay on the blacktop). 5) As I walked across the circle, there appeared to be lots of tire tracks in the dirt / mud. 6) The dump station is weird. It's more like a marine pumping station, with a long hose and pump rather than a place to dump. There were connectors (with directions posted), however, so theoretically you could connect to an RV tank to dump. However, the first foot or so of those connectors were rigid so I could not get it into my motorhome bay to connect to dump. And if you accidently have spillage, there's a hose and nozzle but no place to wash it down. 7) We did not use the restroom or showers. In the men's room, there were (maybe 6) showers with a chair (was it to block the shower?). Most had a shower curtain wadded in the middle of the shower floor. We used this as a base of operations with day trips to Scottsboro and Huntsville so we really weren't in the campground much. The only way we'd stay here again is if we couldn't find another reasonably-priced campsite. We camped at Ditto Landing in a Motorhome.

Lake McClellan Recreation Area , Alanreed, Texas

Date of Stay: April, 2017 - $10.00
Overall Rating:

First, be sure to take the road around to the north side of the lake. The south side is a steep, dirt road more for a picnic area. On the north side, there are two areas: the loop to the west of the entrance is used predominantly by ATVers. It has nice restrooms with very nice showers. The east loop is no ATVs, so is quieter but looked like pit toilets only. The dump station is on a hill by one entrance, somewhat awkward but usable. We stayed on the ATV side; from here on expect capacity crowds over the weekends, and sounds of major party time. One camper parked vehicles and a trailer in limited sites to save them for friends and family -- that is not permitted but he did it anyway. There is a campground host, but he's not always there. We camped at Lake McClellan Recreation Area in a Motorhome.

El Reno Lake Campground, El Reno, Oklahoma

Date of Stay: April, 2017 - $15.00
Overall Rating:

Very nice park with a beautiful view of the lake. Access is by a winding narrow street along the lake. Take it slow and easy: it's beautiful. Registration is all self-service. There are 3 areas: 1) primitive (i.e. tent), 2) RV spots with electric and water (East loop $15) and 3) RV spots with electric, water, and sewer (West loop $20). When we first got there, we could determine a tent-only area, but did not know there was a difference between the two loops. Better informational signage would have been very helpful. Initially the water hydrant for our spot had a huge leak from the valve stem, flooding our site and the road, so I connected to a hydrant on the other side. It was fine. With no way to tell anyone, I put a note in the pay box. Within a couple hours after that was collected, there was a team of men fixing it. We camped at El Reno Lake Campground in a Motorhome.
