Sterling State Park, Monroe, Michigan

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $50.00
Overall Rating:

This is a pretty nice place for a state park. It's located right on Lake Erie with a nice sandy beach and great dedicated swimming area. The boat docks are in a protected cove. The sites are extremely long, with some shrubs between sites for privacy, and nice big grassy areas. The bathrooms and showers were very nice, though we didn't use them. Some of the sites are full hookups, but all of the ones right on the beach are electric only...too bad. No trees in the center of the RV park so Dish satellite worked fine. Quiet with only a train in the far distance. We would have given it a higher rating, but with no other amenities (cable, Wifi, pool, playground, etc.), the price is way too high. Our price includes a $9 per day park use fee which should have been included for campers. We camped at Sterling State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Maple Ridge Campground (formerly Beaver Ridge Family Camping), Lakeville, Indiana

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

Our site was quite nice at this campground, but our overall impression was not as good. The setting is fairly nice with heavily wooded areas surrounding the sites and grass between. Some sites shared utility poles, which we never like, but ours was on the end so we had a large open area facing the road. The only landscaping was around the store (which was never open). The pool was cast cement with large chunks missing around the water line, it really needed cleaning and the pool deck smelled bad next to it. The bathroom & showers were nice but very dirty. They advertise a "pickle ball" court but it was just a net strung over a grassy area. In general they do very poor maintenance. Our Dish satellite worked fine. They offer free Wifi but it didn't work well. One positive note....it's very quiet. We camped at Maple Ridge Campground (formerly Beaver Ridge Family Camping) in a Fifth Wheel.

Colona's Scott Family Park (Formerly Indian Trails Resort), Colona, Illinois

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

If you're looking for a park with a lot of trees, plenty of shade and grass with a homey atmosphere then this is the place. Most of the sites seemed long enough, though a bit narrow. There is a small fishing pond with a couple of docks, but it looked a stagnant and very murky. The indoor heated pool looked nice, though we didn't use it. They have a small mini golf course (in poor condition), horse shoes, and a nice playground for the kids. For a city owned park, this is fairly nice, but as with most government run endeavors they could use a little better management. When we pulled in there was no one at the gate. They had 2 teenagers running the place and if they're supposed to be the maintenance crew then they're not doing a great job. The fire pits had junk in them (old shoes, cans, etc.). The bathrooms/showers were quite old and not at all clean. Our site was supposed to be pull-through, but a big tree right next to the road made it impossible to get in that direction....we had to pull in the wrong way. A couple of campers came in after us and had the same problem with their sites. Most sites have a fire ring but not at ours. We did have a table & small patio, but since we were pulled in the wrong way it was on the back of our 5th wheel and we didn't use it. If you want satellite then ask to be put in the area at the front....gravel lot with no trees or grass. They don't offer cable or Wifi. Overall very quiet, except for a live band that was playing at a camper having a party. This is a fairly nice park, just old and not as well maintained as it should be. Mostly seasonal campers. We camped at Colona's Scott Family Park (Formerly Indian Trails Resort) in a Fifth Wheel.

Des Moines West KOA, Adel, Iowa

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $56.00
Overall Rating:

This is a pretty nice KOA Holiday. Some of the sites are small but ours was very wide. Had a nice tree for morning shade and was plenty long and level. The grass between sites was a bit brown, but it hadn't rained in a while and they don't irrigate. The first day we got in the heated pool, but there were soooo many kids we didn't stay long. The 3rd day we were almost the only ones in the pool and it was much nicer. They have a very nice rec building, a lot of playground things for kids, and a fishing pond (it looked nasty though). Our Dish satellite worked fine. They also offer free Wifi which had a strong signal. Very quiet as you're off the highway a ways. We camped at Des Moines West KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Hickory Hills Campground, Albert Lea, Minnesota

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

This place is in the middle of farm country and a bit remote, but very quiet. Designed mostly for full-time residents there are about 10 RV sites for shorter stays. It is well laid out and has a homey feeling since most of the full-timers have built decks, etc. to make it nicer. The sites are gravel, and our had recently been redone. We had a decent site size & mostly level, but a shared utility post facing your neighbor is never as private. There is nice grass & mature trees but no additional landscaping. Our Dish satellite worked fine. There is no cable or Wifi provided. We camped at Hickory Hills Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Northland Camping & RV Park, Superior, Wisconsin

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $38.00
Overall Rating:

Yes this is an older campground but we found it to be nicer than some of the other reviews said. They had just regraded most of the roads and the lawns between sites were excellent. Our main concern with most places is the noise, but even though this one is near the highway there are a lot of trees blocking the sound and it was fairly quiet. There are natural trees & field on 2 sides, so ask for a site backing in to the field on the back side for more privacy. Our site was twice as long as normal with a fire ring in the back. Dish satellite worked fine as there is no cable. Couldn't get their Wifi. The heated pool looked fine but it was a colder day so we got in the spa. We camped at Northland Camping & RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Penmarallter Campsite, Two Harbors, Minnesota

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

Nice older park with a lot of grass and a nice feel. The mature trees that line the roads are planted too close together though, so we had to back out of our site even though it was a pull-through. The bathrooms and showers are clean but very dated. Our main issue is that it is right next to a major highway and was very noisy during the day. It did die down at night somewhat. There are also train tracks right across the road but we were assured there are almost no trains, and there were none while we were there. Dish satellite worked fine. They offer free Wifi, but it never worked. We wanted to change our plans and cancel our reservation, so we called 4 days in advance and thought they would give us a partial refund...but no refunds ever. We camped at Penmarallter Campsite in a Fifth Wheel.

Thunder Bay KOA, Shuniah, Ontario

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

This is a very nice KOA Holiday with a lot of amenities (mini-golf, horseshoes, shuffleboard, 2 heated pools, kids water zone, big dog park). The roads could use a little upgrading, especially the entry road which was very bad. Our site was fairly big with nice grass and there are mature trees, but very little other landscaping. Our Dish satellite worked fine, but you have to find a site that will let you shoot between the trees. Their free Wifi never worked right and kept going out or was very slow. Unfortunately our Verizon hotspot didn't work either as this place is pretty remote. We had a site with sewer, but they offer a dump station for a $30 fee (kind of pricey). Our main reason for downgrading the rating is it is right next to the highway and there is a train in the distance, so not quiet and tranquil. Also, the pool area had loud music blaring all afternoon and had way too many people in them, so we never went in. We camped at Thunder Bay KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Northwestern Tent & RV Park, Dryden, Ontario

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

This is a fairly nice, older campground. It is well maintained with the cleanest restrooms I've ever encountered at a campground even though a bit out dated. There is a fair amount of landscaping with mature trees and nice grass. Our Dish satellite worked fine but the tall trees would probably block reception at most of the other sites. There are no other amenities, no cable or Wifi, and not a lot to do in the area. We had a pull-thru but the roads were laid out very weird. There was no perimiter toad, so you had to back your truck all the way down the entry road in order to pull around the other RVs. Doable, but weird. Also, the noise from the highway & train right out front were too much for us. We only stayed 1 night and then left. We camped at Northwestern Tent & RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Arrowhead RV Park, Ile Des Chenes, Manitoba

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

Probably one of the better parks in the Winnipeg area, but nothing really to do here (no pool, spa, game room, etc.). Big rigs are placed in a newer section that has no trees, grass or landscaping....just gravel. Great for satellite reception, but not very pretty. We wish they had placed the sites a little farther apart as it felt very close. The owners are nice and are always doing some kind of maintenance. They offer Wifi for a daily fee, but we still thought it was a little pricey for no amenities. We camped at Arrowhead RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Hidden Valley RV & Golf Park, Derry, New Hampshire

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

If you're not a long term resident, or here to play golf (9 hole par 3), this is not a great park. Even then I wouldn't rate it very high. The roads and sites are very tight with tree limbs that should have been trimmed long ago. They made a big deal in the 'rules' about not trimming limbs since they will do that, but obviously they don't. Our site had a speed limit sign that was poorly placed right next to it. Even though the overall site was a decent size & level, all of the trees made it feel very closed in. The fire pit was an old washing machine tub and not really usable. We did manage to find a hole between the trees to receive Dish satellite but I wouldn't count on it elsewhere. There was NO CELL OR WIFI reception. The original part of the park is not designed for big rigs, but there is a new expanded area which is much larger and better laid out....unfortunately they didn't put us in there. The train in the distance was not too noticeable. Since there aren't really any amenities, we thought the place was not a good value. We camped at Hidden Valley RV & Golf Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Fox Run RV Park, Williston, North Dakota

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

If you're in this area of North Dakota this is the only place to stay, unfortunately. The sites are river rock so very hard to walk on or put out a lawn chair. There is absolutely nothing here, just a big gravel parking lot with no trees or landscaping. The sites are fairly long and a decent width, but sitting atop a hill it's so windy you wouldn't dare put out your awnings anyway. Our Dish satellite worked fine and they do offer free Wifi. There is some highway noise but not too bad. There must be a gravel pit up the side road as they came and went all day, kicking up dust as they went by. We never opened the windows....a pitty with the good breeze all of the time. This place was built for the local oil boom and has mostly long-term contract workers staying here. We were only here 1 night and the mosquitos were very bad. We camped at Fox Run RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Billings KOA, Billings, Montana

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $75.00
Overall Rating:

As far as KOA campgrounds go, this one was the first ever and is definitely one of the nicer ones we've ever been to. That said, it is about $25 overpriced even considering all of the amenities. Each site has a large paved patio with very nice table and umbrella and even has a swing. The roads are paved with curbs and mostly easy to navigate. There are lots of mature trees and grass with some additional landscaping,. Being next to the Yellowstone River was nice. Our site was big and level, though some others were a little smaller. We had no Dish satellite but others were able to shoot between the trees in other sites. They provide cable with numerous channels but we didn't use it. Their free Wifi was very slow. The pool & spa looked nice, though there were so many people in it we decided not to go. The mini golf was also very nice, but the $5 per person fee seems a bit high. One of my pet peeves is noise, but this park is very quiet. We camped at Billings KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Yellowstone Grizzly RV Park, West Yellowstone, Montana

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $78.00
Overall Rating:

If you're visiting Yellowstone National Park you can't get any more convenient than this RV park as it's located just outside the entrance. It is located on the edge of town and adjacent to a natural forest on 2 sides. There are lots of mature trees between sites in the older section, but sites 270 and above are newer so the landscaping is smaller. The shrubs and grassy area between sites is watered nightly, so everything is very lush and green. Roads are paved and easy to navigate even for big rigs. I don't know what site one of the previous reviewers stayed in, but most of the sites are spacious and level. Our Dish satellite worked fine, but you do need to find a spot to shoot between the trees. They offer free cable & Wifi, though it was very slow at times. We're fairly picky about noise, and that is NO issue here...very quiet. Our only complaint is that it is WAY expensive for providing no amenities (pool, spa, etc.). I guess they figure you'll pay that much to be right outside the park entrance. We camped at Yellowstone Grizzly RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
