Gunter Hill COE, Montgomery, Alabama

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $13.00
Overall Rating:      

I stayed here one night in pull through site 39 in the Catoma Loop. This park has two loops -- Antioch and Catoma. They are quite different. I was in the Catoma Loop which is newly renovated and very big rig friendly. The sites are paved, very long and spread out, and have sewer connections. The Antioch Loop has much smaller sites and tighter turns on the road. Both loops have sites with water views but there is no swimming. The two loops are completely separate. Site 39 was huge with a grass lawn and woods behind and a sewer hookup. It was totally level. The only downside is that this campground is quite a way from the main highway for someone just stopping the night like I was. Verizon was passable at best. Electric and water and sewer were perfect. Price reflects a senior pass discount. We camped at Gunter Hill COE in a Motorhome.

Whitten Park COE, Fulton, Mississippi

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $11.00
Overall Rating:      

I stayed here one night - Monday night of Labor Day weekend -- in pull through site 42 while passing through in a 27 foot motorhome with tow car. Another great well-laid out COE park that is on a lake with a boat ramp and a swimming area and fishing docks. I was originally in site 30 but asked to move to the pull through site because I didn't want to unhook my tow car for a one night stay. Attendant was very courteous and helpful. There are several loops all of which have some sites that look out on the lake. The two pull through sites are on the main road near the restrooms. About half the sites are reservable. All are paved and looked quite level and almost all had some shade. Mine was flat which was nice -- the table and fire pit were up a flight of stairs in a wooded area that was very private. Overall a very nice site. Loop farthest from fee station was closest to swimming area and had the most campers. All loops had some openings. There is a museum but it was closed the day I was there. There are short paved hiking trails through the woods. The campground is very convenient to the highway, big rig friendly, and makes a great overnight stop or a place to spend some time with family and friends. Verizon worked well as did water and electric. All very well maintained and very quiet at night. There are a few sites with sewer available but neither of the pull throughs had sewer. We camped at Whitten Park COE in a Motorhome.

Osage Hills State Park, Pawhuska, Oklahoma

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

I stayed here 2 nights in site 6 while driving through in a 27 foot motorhome with tow car. This is an older and smaller CCC state park campground (the park itself is actually quite large). The roads are quite narrow as are the sites and it was a difficult and tight park to circle around in. I was originally in site 11 but it had a bend in the middle of it and trees right beside it and a gravel drop off that would have been right off my door so I opted to change to site 6 which is a long pull-through site. Many sites are quite short and there is a good bit of erosion going on so several sites had the gravel drop off problem and many would need leveling. It is a pretty campground with grass and trees and a stream bed through the middle of it. There is a lake but no swimming and the pool was closed but there is a creek with short falls for kids. There is a nice tent camp area up on a hill. There are trails -- the nicest of which was the creek loop. I found the reservation site difficult to work with and with the $8 reservation fee and the $40 per night charge the park was quite expensive. Staff and the ranger in charge were very nice -- ranger came by to chat and drove around the campground at night. Water and electric worked well -- water spigot was quite some distance away. Dump station convenient to use. Verizon - surprisingly -- worked fine. I didn't use the restrooms. Nightly rate didn't include $8 reservation fee. We camped at Osage Hills State Park in a Motorhome.

Richey Cove Park, Council Grove, Kansas

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $11.00
Overall Rating:      

I stayed here 3 nights in site 34 while passing through in a 27 foot motorhome with tow car. I stayed here because it was close to the Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve which I wanted to visit. Another lovely COE campground on a lake with lots of grass and shade trees and quite quiet. It is one of several around Council Grove Lake. This campground has water and electric sites some with 50 amp power (along with a few scattered electric only sites) and takes reservations for some but not all the sites. The sites are paved and have a paved covered patio with concrete table and benches, a covered grill, a grill table, and also a fire pit. Very swanky! There is a day use swimming beach and a boat ramp. The sites themselves are huge and many back right up to the lake -- some even back up to a beach area separate from the swimming beach but those sites are walk in only. There is a tent area that is an island connected by a causeway. Everything was quite well maintained except the hiking trail. The lake was quite clean. I was there on a weekend and the campground was full with lots of family groups but never felt crowded. My site was the only one that didn't get lots of shade during the day. The sites that aren't on the water are a little closer together but still very nice. My only complaint is that my site wasn't particularly level and it looked like many of the others weren't either. But nothing terrible. Water and electric worked well and the dump station was convenient to use. Interior roads were very easy to navigate. Verizon was excellent. Council Grove is just down the road and is a very interesting historic town. No flying bugs but there are lots of tiny ticks so if you go on a walk go prepared. We camped at Richey Cove Park in a Motorhome.

Fleming Park / Lake Jacomo Campground, Blue Springs, Missouri

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

I stayed here two nights in site 43 while passing through in a 27 foot motorhome with tow car. This was base camp to visit places in Kansas City. This is an attractive campground on a grassy hill surrounded by forest that is across the road from Fleming Lake. It is part of very large county park. The hill part means that the sites are in general not level. There is a document on the county website that provides the levelness of each site. It didn't say anything about my site -- which required I be as high on my blocks on one side as I could go and left me with about an 18" drop from my door step down to the ground. One of my least favorite configurations. There are full hookups, electric only hookups, and basic camp sites. It appeared to me that only the full hook ups had any length to them -- the others were very short. There were some homeless folk in tents on the sites at the bottom of the hill. Sites with shade had folk that looked like they would be there a while -- there is a 14 day limit. They are in the process of building a new restroom building. The sites themselves are loose, rough gravel. There is a dump station. The interior roads were paved and easy to negotiate. The park appeared to be well maintained -- I arrived shortly after an unprecedented 6 inch rain and there were washouts and lots of gravel on the roads which they were cleaning up while I was leaving. The sites were spacious. Water and electric worked well and Verizon was good. For dog walkers turn left out of the campground and about 1/2 mile up the road there is a group shelter on the right at the end of a long unpaved road. Huge open field with trees and mowed trails through the adjoining meadow. You need to call to make a reservation and the lady was very pleasant. There is a $2 per day discount for senior citizens which you have to ask for when you arrive and which I totally forgot about. You have to check in by 9 pm and there is a gate with a passcode. We camped at Fleming Park / Lake Jacomo Campground in a Motorhome.

Old Town Campground COE, Perry, Kansas

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $9.00
Overall Rating:      

I stayed here 3 nights in site E15 while passing through in a 27 foot motorhome with tow car. This campground is about 15 miles off of I-70 which is quite a bit further than the other COE campgrounds on Perry Lake. It is not as well laid out as some COE campgrounds nor as well kept up. There are five loops but only two have water and electric hookups -- Loops A and E. E is up on a hill and the sites are closer together than usual in COE parks and they are of varying size -- many are very small. Loop A was more of a grid. There is a lot of grass and some shade depending on your site. None of the sites are on the lake but most have some sort of a lake view. My site backed up to trees and the water and electric were down a fairly serious slope. There wasn't much grass area and there was quite a bit of mud and puddles next to the road. It was level but many of the other sites in Loop E were not. The park has a small boat ramp and a minimal playground. Interior roads are paved and easy to navigate. No swimming area -- the lake was quite muddy. The sites appear to have recently had gravel added to build them up. The gravel is large and very rough and just kind of spread around everywhere. There are no trails. I didn't use the bathrooms. Verizon was excellent. Water and sewer worked well although my water spigot had a serious leak. The campground was nearly deserted while I was there during the week. This COE campground was not nearly as nice as many of the other ones I have stayed at. However, the no hookup sites down by the lake in loops B and D were very nice. Loop E just felt like a not very well designed after thought. The price reflects a Senior Pass discount. We camped at Old Town Campground COE in a Motorhome.

Sylvan Park COE, Sylvan Grove, Kansas

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

I stayed in site 4 for two nights while passing through in a 27 foot motorhome with tow car. This COE park is located behind the dam creating Wilson Lake and is about 9 miles north of I-70. It is a beautiful area and beautiful lake but there is very little else around. It is a typical spread out COE park with very spacious, level, paved sites, all very well maintained, with lots of grass and big shade trees. There is a boat ramp down the road but there is no swimming beach at this park. To swim you would need to go to the state park down the road or COE's Lucas Park which has a beach but no shade. I was there on a weekend and most of the sites were taken. Most sites are very long pull-throughs located on two loops -- one is 30 amp and the other is 50. On the website all sites (14-25) on the 50 amp loop come up as handicap sites and you get a warning that you can be moved if necessary. A little strange. All these sites were taken and I'm sure they weren't all handicapped folk. There are a few back in sites. I really liked my site except that there is one light in the park near the fee station and it is VERY bright and it was very close. I'd pick a site further away from the fee station next time. Dump station well positioned. Roads were easy to navigate. There is a short hiking trail down the road. Verizon worked well. Water and electric were excellent. Price reflects Senior Pass discount. Very quiet and pleasant park well worth the extra nine miles off of I-70 for those passing through. We camped at Sylvan Park COE in a Motorhome.

For dog folk there is a dirt road that runs down the hill to the lake which is about a mile from the park. The road is located off the main highway about halfway between the dam information kiosk and the boat ramp. It is marked only with a small "no camping" sign. There is a mowed area along the lake and the road makes a big loop back to the highway. Lovely place to let your dog run off leash and swim in the lake which is very shallow along the shore and has a rocky/sandy bottom.

Heaton Bay/ White River National Forest, Frisco, Colorado

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $11.00
Overall Rating:      

I stayed here two nights in site C38 while passing through in a 27 foot motorhome with tow car. This National Forest campground is on Dillon Lake on the outskirts of Frisco, Colorado just off I-70. It is between Vail Summit and Eisenhower Tunnel so it is a nice place to stop but there is some road noise. There are multiple loops and a tent camping area. Loop C is the only one with hookups -- water and electric -- and it is up on a hill. Tents are down by the lake. There is no dump station so be forewarned.

This is a very popular campground and if you want a site with hookups you need to reserve ahead and pay the additional $10 reservation fee the Forest Service charges. The other loops had open sites. The sites are all paved but there is a lot of variety in their size and configuration. As others have noted many of the sites are not level -- mine, however, was. I also appreciated that the website specified that it was a pull in and not a back in site. Take the website's length of site seriously when making your selection because that is exactly what you are going to get. Interior roads were paved and easy to navigate.

Others have commented on the loss of trees but a lot of trees are still here and many young ones are growing up and there was a blanket of wildflowers. Definitely not a moonscape. The view of the mountains from my doorstep was stunning. And it was 60 degrees in mid-August. Used my little heater at night because it got down to 40.

Frisco is a lovely upscale little town with lots of history and recreational opportunities. There is a popular bike trail that runs right along the campground road and a beautiful day use area. It would be very easy to stay here for weeks and people were doing just that. Water and electric worked well. Verizon was excellent. Price reflects Senior Pass but does not reflect $10 reservation fee. We camped at Heaton Bay/ White River National Forest in a Motorhome.

Goodland KOA, Goodland, Kansas

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $33.00
Overall Rating:      

I stayed here one night in site 24 while traveling through in a 27 foot motorhome with tow car. This was an overnight stay off of I-70. It was easy to access from the interstate and far enough away from it that there wasn't much road noise. Nice folk running the place. Older KOA but decently maintained. Very dog friendly as others have said. Sites weren't remarkable -- gravel with a little grass and a few trees but mine was long enough and level enough that I didn't have to unhook my tow car which I have found is unusual. Water and electric worked well although at my site water was WAY at the back of the site separate from the electric and sewer and I had to pull out my long hose to reach it. Other spots did not have this issue. Verizon was excellent. Roads were very easy to navigate. As others have said it is a good overnight stay. It started filling up around five o'clock and was pretty much full by sunset. Price reflects 10% KOA discount. We camped at Goodland KOA in a Motorhome.

Grand Junction KOA, Grand Junction, Colorado

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

I stayed here three nights in site B2 while passing through with a 27 foot motorhome with tow car. This is a large, busy "holiday" KOA with gravel roads and a selection of different types of gravel sites, some with grass and some with shade. Everything was well-maintained. B2 was a full hookup pull-through with a nice grass area, a shade tree, and a cement patio. There are two pet areas at the end of the park, both shaded, and one has some grass. I used this as a base to visit Grand Mesa and Colorado National Monument. It's not in a particularly scenic part of town but there was a grocery store just up the road and the park was very convenient to the places I wanted to visit. The fairgrounds is next door. Price reflects KOA discount. I didn't use the restrooms or the wifi. Verizon worked well. Electric, power, and sewer hookups were excellent. We camped at Grand Junction KOA in a Motorhome.

Green River State Park, Green River, Utah

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

I stayed here 4 nights in sites 33 and 34 while passing through in a 27 foot motorhome with tow car. This is a pleasant, low-key, well-maintained park with lots of grass and trees and very spacious sites that is located on the Green River. The roads are paved -- a little confusing to navigate as others have noted. It is not a park I would want to arrive at after dark. It is very dark and there are trees that lean over the sites, trees right next to the sites, and very large rocks used to guard the electric hookups and water spigots. My first site was 34 which it turned out was a pull in site -- not a back in site (meaning if you backed in your door faced the wrong way and hook ups were on the wrong side) -- and several other "back in" sites had similar set ups. None of the sites are really long but there are some pull through (and pull over) sites that some big (but not huge) rigs managed to fit into along with their cars. I moved into site 33 because it was a little longer and had enough space to comfortably park my tow car. Staff were very helpful making the site change. Site 33 was also a pull in site. There were a lot of walk-ins who drove around (and around) looking for a spot which I think is probably the easiest way to find a site that works for you. The park was never completely full. The river is very muddy and looked unpleasant. The golf course is nice and green but dogs are of course verboten. Walking the dog around the park worked fine. The park is 45-50 minutes to Arches NP and a little over a hour to Canyonlands NP. There were quite a few tent campers. Verizon worked well. Electricity and water worked well and the dump site was easy to maneuver. I didn't use the restrooms. The irrigation sprayers will spray your entire rig so be warned. Price does not include the $8 transaction fee to make a reservation. If you have a big rig arrive early because it is not a big rig friendly park. We camped at Green River State Park in a Motorhome.

Yuba State Park - Oasis Campground, Levan, Utah

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

I stayed here two nights in site 12 while passing through in a 27 foot motorhome with tow car. The good -- it is not far off Interstate 15, it is on a lake, the sites are quite spacious with grass and shade trees and sheltered patios and graveled tent pads, and dogs are allowed on the beach and in the lake. The bad -- the park is very poorly laid out. There is a one way loop with pull through sites and back in sites on both sides. If I'd pulled into my pull through site following the loop my door would have been facing the road and the hookups would have been on the wrong side. The camp host who came by said to do a U-turn and come up the wrong way on the loop which is what virtually everyone else had done. I did it and rangers yelled at me for "not following the arrows." The camp host said he would straighten them out. Some back in sites have similar issues. Other than the backwards issue my site was excellent. It also didn't help that I arrived Sunday afternoon when the day use folk were leaving -- and the day use area is inside the campground and on the one way loop. As I said -- poorly laid out. The lake is very low -- 18% capacity -- and they closed 2/3rds of the boat ramp during my stay. We had severe wind storms both days I was there -- be very careful with your awnings. Verizon was okay. Water and electric worked fine. The dump station is across the road and perfect. I didn't use the restrooms. Price does not reflect $8 reservation fee. There are ATV trails and a hiking trail that starts at the dump station. The beach and lake were virtually deserted early in the morning and at dusk. There is a camp store that rents all kinds of lake stuff. We camped at Yuba State Park - Oasis Campground in a Motorhome.

Angel Lake RV Park, Wells, Nevada

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $31.00
Overall Rating:      

I stayed here one night in site 22 while passing through in a 27 foot motorhome with tow car. This is a no frills gravel and dirt older RV park with some trees that provide a little shade. There are some extended stay folk in the rows on the sides of the park but nothing trashy. The middle row which is full hookup pull through sites appeared to be the ones used for folk traveling through. They were not very long or wide but I imagine during the RV migration season big rigs squeeze themselves in. The park is very easy to access from I-80. Road/train noise present but not bothersome. There is a state recreation area up the road and the website said that hunters are welcome. Roads were wide, gravel and easy to navigate. Well set up dump station. The restrooms, office and laundry are all in one building. I don't usually use restrooms/showers but stopped in after a dog walk. They were a surprise. The restrooms/showers were modern, large, and immaculate as was the laundry. There was free wifi which I rarely used but seemed to work fine. Verizon was excellent. No real pet area other than an unfenced area of mowed weeds along the highway outside the park. Staff was pleasant. Price reflects Good Sams discount. We camped at Angel Lake RV Park in a Motorhome.

Ely KOA, Ely, Nevada

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $37.00
Overall Rating:      

I stayed two nights in site 37 while passing through in a 27 foot motorhome with tow car. Wanted a base to visit Great Basin NP and though this campground is about an hours drive away it advertised shade and had good reviews. Like most parks in Nevada it is mostly gravel but unlike most parks it actually has big trees that provided shade. A couple sites at the end of the rows also had some grass. The park is open all year and extended stay folk are in a couple rows off to themselves on the highway side of park. Middle of park is two rows of full hookup pull through sites that all have some shade and are long enough and wide enough for big rigs with tow cars and trailers hauling ATVs. Back row was water and electric only for smaller RVs. This appears to be a popular ATV area and there are entrances to ATV trails on both sides of the park. However there are ATV rules and the park was quite quiet (I was there on a weekend). Very wide gravel roads made maneuvering inside park very easy. Two fenced dog areas -- one that actually had some irrigated grass instead of just gravel! Also many trails just outside of park for dog walking -- ask at the office. Also has tent camping area and cabins. Wifi was okay -- not great. Verizon was good but slow. Both worked best in early morning and late at night. Water and electric worked well except just when I arrived the power in the entire Ely area went out about 30-40 minutes. Didn't use sewer hookup -- well set up dump site. Didn't use restrooms. Price reflects KOA discount. We camped at Ely KOA in a Motorhome.

Great Basin NP is an hours drive away. The caves are amazing.

Bordertown Casino RV Resort, Reno, Nevada

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

I stayed here for three nights in site 7 while passing through in a 27 foot motorhome with tow car. This is a casino, restaurant, gas station, and RV park complex easily accessed from US395. It is extremely well maintained (looks new). There is a dog park -- gravel and sand with a tree with chairs and table underneath. No playground. All sites except one (which is next to the restrooms) are pull-throughs with perfectly level concrete pads with an extended concrete patio with concrete tables and benches. There is lush grass between the sites that gets watered every night -- they warn you not to leave anything out -- and gravel. The sites are far enough apart to comfortably accommodate big rigs with slideouts without encroaching on people on either side. Lengthwise big rigs with tow cars are a close fit. There is additional parking available. There are trees but not yet big enough to provide useful shade. It was hot. Nobody was hanging around outside. There were no kids. There is a dump site. Roads are paved but surprisingly narrow. Things can get backed up at the dump site because there is only one way traffic leaving the campground. Office staff were extremely pleasant. Wifi was truly excellent -- I uploaded 1600 photos during the night -- however my site was directly across from the restrooms which is where the Wi-Fi antenna is located. Verizon was excellent as well. Downtown Reno is 25-45 minutes away depending on the time of day. Water, electric, and sewer connection (takes the small connector) all worked well. I suggest calling ahead or booking a reservation online. They were filled up every night I was there. I don't gamble and didn't eat at the restaurant but lots of folk were headed that way. There was some road noise but not bothersome. We camped at Bordertown Casino RV Resort in a Motorhome.

If your RV engine needs maintenance or repair I can highly recommend A Master Mechanic in downtown Reno. Not a chain store. Had a leaking steering stabilizer and they fit me in on one day's notice and got me in and out in a couple hours at a very reasonable price.
