Shadow Ridge RV Resort, Ajo, Arizona

Date of Stay: September, 2014 - $24.00
Overall Rating:      

I visited in late September which is still off-season in this region. Their office has limited hours (closing at 4 pm M-F, closed weekends) during the off-season, but you can check in and seek assistance after hours at the gas station next door (owned by the same owner) if needed. There were a few permanent guests, but the park was mostly empty, and their voice mail indicates that reservations aren't required during the summer months. Facilities include a clubhouse which includes pool tables (no charge), a kitchen, an activity room, and more. They also have a laundry room and amply sized restrooms. Restroom and laundry room are secured with a key which you are issued at check-in, and can leave in a drop box when you leave. WiFi signal was strong (I was parked near the restrooms). I would consider the internet speed to be somewhat slow but very reliable. I would definitely stay at this RV park again if visiting in the future. We camped at Shadow Ridge RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Flagstaff KOA, Flagstaff, Arizona

Date of Stay: August, 2014 - $37.00
Overall Rating:      

When you book a 30/20 amp site, you assume you will have your choice of 30 or 20 amps on your pedestal. Not true here. Many sites share a pedestal with a neighboring site, and that pedestal has ONE 30 amp plug. This means that if someone got to the neighboring site before you and took the 30 amp plug, all you get is 20 amps. This fact needs to be communicated during the booking process, otherwise I call it false advertising. Otherwise, the campground was clean, the wifi was acceptable (it had occasional hiccups, but I've seen much worse), and the staff was plentiful and helpful on this busy holiday weekend. We camped at Flagstaff KOA in a Travel Trailer.

United Campground of Durango, Durango, Colorado

Date of Stay: June, 2014 - $39.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a great campground to stay at if you like trains, as the Durango-Silverton steam train passes right through the middle of the campground several times a day. If you like sleeping in past 8:00, however, this is not the park for you, as you will be woken up when the train comes through. Wifi works well (I measured the speed at 8 megabits at one point), as long as you are located near the laundry room where their one hotspot is located. If internet access is important to you, ask for a site in that area. There are reports that sometimes speeds will get bogged down at peak times. The map distributed at check-in says the pool is open until 9 pm, and I was disappointed to learn that that is only true during peak season (starting around July 4th). During my stay, it closed at 8 pm. They need to do a better job communicating this fact to campers. We camped at United Campground of Durango in a Travel Trailer.

USA RV Park, Gallup, New Mexico

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

This is a nice clean, well maintained campground. The restrooms and showers looked so clean I wonder if anyone actually used them. The RV park is located across the street from a major rail line, although I rarely heard it. (My site was near the back of the park). The campground is in the flight path of an airport about 1/4 mile away, which does cause loud noise, including in the middle of the night, when planes take off. We camped at USA RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Caribou Crossroads, Belden, California

Date of Stay: July, 2013 - $31.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a very small park, and because at least some (if not many) sites seem to be taken by long term rentals, I strongly recommend making a reservation. All sites are back-in, and most sites back right up to the Feather River, providing a very beautiful environment. The owner is very friendly and helpful, and came out to help me back in to my site. Showers cost $4.00 (pay in the office). There is only one men's shower, and it was kept clean most of the time, although I did notice that they seem to have a problem with people not cleaning up after themselves, leaving bars of soap, bottles of shampoo, etc. The campers have a very friendly atmosphere, holding a community campfire nightly where all are welcome to join in. I would definitely come back. We camped at Caribou Crossroads in a Travel Trailer.

Hearst San Simeon State Park, Cambria, California

Date of Stay: June, 2013 - $35.00
Overall Rating:      

Reservations are not site specific, but I was a bit surprised by the procedure on arrival. I was instructed to drive around the campground and look for AT LEAST three sites I might want, then come back and they would confirm that one of them was available. There are two campgrounds here. Campers in the Washburn campgrounds are not allowed to use the showers. For campers in the San Simon Creek campground, showers are an affordable 25 cents per 3 minutes. The beach is a short stroll away (walking under the highway). We camped at Hearst San Simeon State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Ventura Ranch KOA, Santa Paula, California

Date of Stay: June, 2013 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a fairly new looking campground, and they seem to be working hard to make it a great one. There are some uncommon (to campgrounds) facilities such as a zip line and other activities that you can partake in. A pool will be available soon (it is under construction). My biggest complaint is that the closest bathrooms and showers to my site were quite a walk (up a couple flights of stairs) from my campsite, up by the clubhouse. If you can't walk that far, however, there is parking and you can drive there. We camped at Ventura Ranch KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Idyllwild County Park, Idyllwild, California

Date of Stay: June, 2013 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

My rate was $20 plus a $7 reservation fee. This was a nice cool place to camp out of the heat of the valley below. I wish I could spend more time up here. Do not expect level sites like you would find in an RV park. Many of these sites are designed for tents, but you can get an RV in there. There are two buildings with showers, one at the very front of the campground (near the day use parking lot), and one near the middle of the campground. My campsite was at the very back of the campground, and at my site Verizon service was poor, so your mileage may vary. I would stay here again. We camped at Idyllwild County Park in a Travel Trailer.

Flagstaff KOA, Flagstaff, Arizona

Date of Stay: May, 2012 - $33.00
Overall Rating:      

Use caution if booking the back-in, water/electric, 30/20 amp, Wi-Fi sites and if you need 30 amp power. The site I was placed in had one 30 amp plug shared by four sites, and it was on the wrong side of the RV to be useful by this site. There was a closer 20 amp plug I was able to use, however. When I asked, they said they are "shared" outlets. They don't mention that on the reservations website. The water hookup was also not on the standard side of the RV, but fortunately I had a long hose. (This only seems to apply to these specific sites; the rest all have dedicated outlets for each site as you would expect. Otherwise, considering its age, the campground seems well maintained. There are lots of (seasonal) activities for the kids, including a splash pad, a bounce house, movies in the evening, bike rentals, etc. Wi-fi was intermittent at times, but worked most of the time. We camped at Flagstaff KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Great Falls KOA, Great Falls, Montana

Date of Stay: June, 2009 - $48.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a large beautiful RV park in a beautiful area. It is nicely landscaped with trees or bushes between every campsite. Firewood is provided for free. Freshly baked cookies are provided for free in the office. Wireless internet is free (with a code from the office), but some of their hotspots seemed to be having problems during my visit, so I experienced some difficulties accessing it from my site. We camped at Great Falls KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Buffalo Plains RV Park & Campground (CLOSED), Fort Macleod, Alberta

Date of Stay: June, 2009 - $23.00
Overall Rating:      

At first I was nervous about finding the campground, since it is several km off the main highway, but the directions provided worked well, and there are signs leading the way all the way from the main highway. Wireless internet is now free, and worked well. There was plenty of room the day I arrived, but they were completely booked for the next night, so I definitely recommend reservations. We camped at Buffalo Plains RV Park & Campground (CLOSED) in a Travel Trailer.

Bow RiversEdge Campground, Cochrane, Alberta

Date of Stay: June, 2009 - $33.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a very nice, modern looking campground adjacent to a paved walking/bicycle path that parallels the Bow River. Wireless internet is free, however it struggles to meet the needs of the campground. Heavy filtering has been installed to prevent abuse of bandwidth, yet still at least half the time attempts to view web sites resulted in errors. Showers are coin operated, costing $1.00. We camped at Bow RiversEdge Campground in a Motorhome.

Flagstaff KOA, Flagstaff, Arizona

Date of Stay: June, 2009 - $32.00
Overall Rating:      

I previously avoided this park when they charged for internet access, but internet access is now free, and works well. Check-in staff was very friendly, helpful, and quick. The only problem was that they were so quick that the people escorting campers to sites couldn't keep up, so there was a small delay in getting to camp. Even they were extra friendly, even taking the time to wipe off the faucet (and brag about their great tasting water). We camped at Flagstaff KOA in a Motorhome.

I've stayed at this campground several times while travelling on I-15, and would continue to choose it as a stopping off point in this area. The campground is nicely landscaped with a small brook bordering the edge of the campground. Wireless internet is free, and worked well. Staff was very friendly and helpful, and even walked out to make sure I easily found the right site. We camped at Beaver KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Mesa Verde RV Resort, Mancos, Colorado

Date of Stay: October, 2008 - $33.00
Overall Rating:      

Mid-October is the beginning of the slow season for this campground, and it shows. On Sunday, the office was only open for three hours in the afternoon, meaning that the lounge they advertise for guests was not available most of the day. On their website, they advertise that "Resort guests are escorted to their sites," but that just doesn't happen this time of year the manager simply instructed me to pick any site in the first three rows. The bathroom does not appear to be cleaned on a daily basis, as demonstrated by a full trash can and dirty toilets which were not fixed during my stay. Additionally, two of the four toilets in the men's restroom were out of order. That being said, this is a beautiful campground in a beautiful area. There are many large trees providing shade for many of the sites, and I wouldn't hesitate to stay at this beautiful campground again, even during the slow season. We camped at Mesa Verde RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.
