Gaylord KOA, Gaylord, Michigan

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $42.00
Overall Rating:

This is a very nice campground with tons of things for the kids though at KOA prices. I do not deduct any points for this but do think it is silly to charge campers for putt putt as many campgrounds offer it for free. They have the bikes, basketball, horseshoes and tumble area. There are literally tons if things for kids to do. The wifi has 2 gig and 5 gig speed and there are access towers all around the campground lot for great speeds. There were only a 15 other campers when we were here so naturally the speeds were great. With so many access points though I would believe the speed would be good all the time. The cable tv was easy to reach and showed up great on the tv as some campgrounds we have been at, the picture was better when I was kid in the 70's over the air. Our site was large and level right next to the walk way to the showers. The sewer hook up was high enough so our hose led straight in and not on an up hill angle. lots are sand with patches of grass as this is "up north" under the shade of pine trees so what would one expect. Every night we sat out with fire and listened to the coyotes and owls as road noise was minimal. The restrooms and showers clean though we did use the showers and the are very nice and accommodating. The staff we found was friendly with a well stocked store at campground prices. In town is a large penned area for elk, take the kids its free and a nice spot for lunch. One last thing, I am very impressed with the staff. It had rained for sevarl days before we arrived late at night. The roads, which are dirt, were pocked mark with deep water. The very next day early in the morning with a forecast of sunny sky skies, the staff emptying the water and grading the road. Very proactive crew. We camped at Gaylord KOA in a Travel Trailer.

For the cachers, we did some close caches but really used this campground as a jump point for the surrounding counties to finish our county cache crusade. However do a search for favorites with 20 fav points or more in a 100 mile radius. there may not be many caches but the quality is overwhelming.

Roadrunner RV Resort, Red River, New Mexico

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

This is a clean, quiet park with complimentary coffee and tea in the office and friendly people. Children's items are some what limited but there is the creek to play in and fish. There is a one hole putting green some playground equipment. We camped on the river and next to the paved road with the bathhouse across the creek. The showers/toilets are one in all with each it's own little unit. They were clean and very large. The office has a limited stock of goods so you might be better going into town or bringing with. The gate is managed from 8 am to 8 pm then you are given a code to be let in. Walking through the park is beautiful and Red River offers a ton of summer things to do. The roads are little tight but passable. You can bring your ORV but just drive from your camp to the road and vice versa. The other camps down the road had them running along the camp roads. Wi Fi was great and not slow for a large campground, they have antennas all over the park. Our site was pretty level and the park is very quiet. We had no problem with staff and found everyone kind. Wildlife abounds here as every morning when we left we had to stop to let the deer cross the road. Drive in from the east at dusk and see bear, mule deer, big horn sheep and elk plus regular deer. In town take the chair lift up the mountain but bring your food. It was $53 for our family of three for run of the mill hamburgers, fries and pop. The views going up, down and on top are worth the price. Stop at the township office for a map on where you can pan for gold. Rent a horse and ORV from one of the many business in town. Fish in the town ponds. We camped at Roadrunner RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

The caches here are few and far between but the one you find offer spectacular views especially the ones out in the forest. Unless you grab the Garcia Park Road and Borrego Crossing Loop. Be aware though some parts will take a vehicle with some ground clearance. The bridge is out at the end of the loop and will take a 4 WD to cross the river. We did but we had Ram The Wonder Truck 4WD

Summer Breeze Campground, Iron Mountain, Michigan

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

Some of the sites are very close together, there was literally 2 feet between our trailer and the slide out from the other trailer. Though there were many sites open. Most of the sites are quite decent from what we saw on our evening walks. The park is quiet at night and very peaceful. Our site was not level but then not many are. The bathrooms were spotless and very nice with full louvered doors on the toilets and showers. They have a swimming that is clean and used a lot. They have free dvds for campers along with tether ball and basketball. The WIFI is unless your up close to the clubhouse is useless. They do have a beautiful garden to sit in though while you are surfing. We have ATT and received a very good signal for internet access. OTA channels do not exist. The camp store is well equipped but the Ice Cream Social is a pay event and coffee is 69 cents A clean well kept campground that we would stay at again just not on our site. We camped at Summer Breeze Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Rhinelander is a great town. Caching is great here and don't miss the Logging Museum. We had 100 caches in the Bear Bait power trail. A Copper Mine Experience is a great earth cache to go along with the Mine tour in Iron Mountain GC7A36D GC2XH0V Little White Church is a neat cache. Michigan Spirit Quest #40 GCW1YB is a spooky cache in a over grown cemetery. Be sure to check the Iron Mountain Mine tour and falls. The Cornish Pump and WW2 Glider Museum is well worth the money also.

Goodland KOA, Goodland, Kansas

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

Drive is tight as we have a truck and 20 foot trailer and had a heck a time getting into our cramped spot. This place is pretty small, given the open country. However, we did not make a reservation and stopped just for the night. The restroom are clean and the everyone was friendly. Wi-Fi was strong but we did not hook up to cable. The pool looked clean and when we pulled up someone was weeding the flowers. Not a lot for kids, though this is just a stopover on the way to somewhere as we did, I suspect. Given the fact we were in the prairie where flatland reigns supreme, the were level. Sewer sites are available but as I said we had no reservations so only had water/electric. The place is extremely busy. We camped at Goodland KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Be sure to check the huge painting in town and walk around in town some. Lots diners by the freeway and a car wash big enough for a trailer to wash off the prairie dust. For the cachers there are plenty of nifty caches here including the painting. A lot of caches with high favorite points in such a small area. Plus the outlying areas look good also.

Fort De Soto Campground, Tierra Verde, Florida

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

First off this Florida where anything that walks, crawls, slithers, scoots or does not move at all will likely poke, bite sting or prick you. Usually with an outcome that has pain, irritation or hospitalization. That being said this a wonderful park with plenty to do. The basics first, the electric and water are conveniently located and easy to hook up. We have a 42 gallon waste water tank that we use for grey water only. It can be towed behind a vehicle for easy hauling to the dump stations. The park rangers are more then accommodating as we were only schedule to stay a few days but wanted to extend it to a full week. The ranger looked through all the sites and found a couple of sites that he held while we drove to each one to see which one we liked the best. We were able to move right then instead of delaying the site move. There are 2 fishing piers with bait stores and snack bars with the usually hamburgers, hot dogs and such . They however , are only open 8-4 pm when we were there. There are kayaks to rent out in the main park but it was closed during our stay in Oct. I figured they would be open. The camp store itself does rentals also and is well stocked. Fort Desoto in a great little tour you can take yourself. Edgemont Key is a short boat ride away and well worth the trip. We have AT&T cell with a weak signal at the first site and no signal at the second site. Before we left I paid $19.99 for the Sunpass toll booth easy pass. Though it is only good for Florida, we vacation here often so we will probably use it again. Even if we don't it was worth the money to drive straight through the tolls without waiting for people fumbling for money to pay. The trees do have low hanging branches and getting into sites can tricky but the trade off is some seclusion from your neighbors. All in a great place to camp. We camped at Fort De Soto Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Geocaching is a great way to see Tarpon Springs and don't miss the Sponge Diving. Sunken Gardens is beautiful and not far from the Virtual cache GC5C38 Down By The Banyan Tree. For some quick caches and sight seeing hit the Courtney Campbell Soup Run series. Six miles across Old Tampa Bay on Route 60 which you can drive park to quickly finish it off.

Benton KOA, Benton, Illinois

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $48.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed here for the eclipse last year. Many more people went further south as I-57 was a parking lot with people going back north. This KOA has many amenities including food such as chicken wings delivered to your site for a fee of course. The camp store is well stocked with souvenirs and camping supplies. The restrooms and showers were clean. The fishing pond is located across the road if you parking on the main lot. We did not use the pool but many people did and it appeared to be well maintained and clean. The owners also cut hair in the camp store. The only problem would be you have to back track and navigate through town to get here but don't let this deter you for making this home base during an extended stay as we did. For the cachers, there are tons of caches around the lake but we cached Memphis and the American Pickers store. We spent a whole day in here caching and walking around the city. Chester Ill. is home town for Popeye and the only Popeye Store in the world with many great caches. We camped at Benton KOA in a Travel Trailer.

St. Ignace / Mackinac Island KOA, St Ignace, Michigan

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

Lots are tight but deep. The actual parking area is elevated gravel as where we parked it was dry mud where the picnic table goes. Wife used the shower on the day we left but there was no hot water. She told the desk and they said they were aware of it. A hot water heater went out. We left for breakfast and came back. Upon our return we saw a plumbing truck there. We liked the quick response on the hot water problem. The mini golf was extra when it should be included for campers. The pool was clean and neat. To some the restroom/shower areas would be outdated but I liked it as it took me back to camping when I was kid. Also are people there to critique the interior design of a campground or to answer the call of mother nature. Paint the room purple as long as the toilets flush and are clean. One problem was the electric was way back on the site and the water was on the other side in the front. We camped at St. Ignace / Mackinac Island KOA in a Travel Trailer.

St. Augustine Beach KOA, St Augustine Beach, Florida

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $109.00
Overall Rating:

We were in a cabin right next to the office/store/showers. Many of the cabins are over, or backed up to the water so you can just walk out your door and fish. The pond needs to be cleaned up a bit due to algae and duckweed covering the entire area. Cabins are close together making parking tight.

For the money we would stay in a motel that included our bathroom. The cabins are a too expensive for what little you get, at least ours was. Kind of noisy behind a strip mall. Laundry and bathrooms were clean though and staff pleasant. We camped at St. Augustine Beach KOA in a Cabin.

Very nice KOA with friendly staff. Lake Erie across the street in a nice park. Some the games did not work but my son and I played pool for over an hour. Campground employee showed us to our site and helped us back in with directions. We camped at Westfield / Lake Erie KOA in a Tent Trailer.
