Des Moines West KOA, Adel, Iowa

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

This is a large park with impressive facilities. There are a number of very new very nice cabins as well. All patio sites have like new grills and fire rings. Our site was not quite level, and the gravel roads were dusty during our visit. The camp store has just about anything you could need as well as very good pizza and wings that were a real bargain. The people couldn't be friendlier. Jared is about the nicest camp host we have met. Only downfall is despite their impressive investment in making this "new" clean and welcoming, the internet is basically non existent. While they have a number of WiFi boosters and signal was excellent, we were rarely even able to log in to email, or at most 1 or 2 plain web pages. This despite the fact that there were only a dozen or so trailers staying. This would be a great place for kids. MANY kids activity areas, as well as two fenced off areas for dog park, and a large pond. We camped at Des Moines West KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

The John Wayne home and museum was well worth the visit. Also visit a couple of the famed "Bridges of Madison County" nearby. Just don't clean your vehicle before you go...gravel roads and dust!

Big Red Barn RV Park, Carthage, Missouri

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

This campground, while close to the freeway is quiet and very "country" complete with many birds singing, and even the morning rooster to greet you. Sites were gravel, level, nice shade, and large open area to run the dog. Mostly short term visits it appears. We had a nice time visiting Carthage, as well as Joplin. Wifi and internet were fine, all services fine, without problems. We even were welcomed with cookies when we registered. We would stay here again on our way north or south. We camped at Big Red Barn RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tom Sawyer's Mississippi River Park, West Memphis, Arkansas

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

We came here to be by the river and see tugs and barges and we sure did! The river was near flood stage and was fast and very busy. Our concrete site on the rivers edge was level and perfect size so the mat and picnic table were just out the door. It was a bit "soft" - not really muddy - but the park had just opened a couple weeks earlier after flooding. The website is a great help to let you know if the park is likely going to close due to high water. Mostly people are staying a night or two on their way back north from their winter campgrounds. Little in the way of amenities. You come here to watch river traffic! Other appreciated perks: little stations to drop your doggie-doo bags and even some bags provided and free laundry with modern large machines were very much appreciated. Everything to see in Memphis is all within a few blocks of the river so had no trouble getting around and hitting a few attractions. We camped at Tom Sawyer's Mississippi River Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Waterloo / Lost Island Waterpark KOA, Waterloo, Iowa

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

We stayed here on the way south. Winter was just ending so the water wasn't on, but available at the convenience store at check in. Sewer/power on and fine. Our pull through site still had some mud but it had just "snowed" the days before. Spacious sites. Although this was very early spring was impressed that there would be a lot to do for families with the adjacent water park, lake and activities once summer arrives. Only a mile up the road is a shopping area of town with "everything" in the big box store category, yet the park itself seems "away" from town. Some highway noise. WIFI was strong and fast although park was nearly empty. Verizon strong. We camped at Waterloo / Lost Island Waterpark KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Mackinaw Mill Creek Camping, Mackinaw City, Michigan

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

We were reluctant as new campers to go to such a large park, but we found a very professional, well maintained, and organized facility. It was the end of Sept so relatively quiet, but even with it's size, we never felt crowded. You have to pay for wifi, and pay according to your desired speed via an outside provider, however I felt that was worth it as the service was very good. Easy access to the ferrys and downtown. We would definitely return! We camped at Mackinaw Mill Creek Camping in a Travel Trailer.

Soo Locks Campground, Sault Sainte Marie, Michigan

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

We stayed here for the location, which is fantastic if you're a boat watcher. It also is very close to town, and easy to get to attractions. The sites however are narrow and they allow up to 6 people per site. We had 3 families with kids all living within about 50 feet, tents nearly touching our picnic table, and kids and adults continually walking the very few feet behind our camper, practically tripping over our legs when we tried to sit and watch the river. (site 36) Although that was a "neighbor issue", the narrow sites made it seem more like we were intruding on their families to even try be outside. Other sites are no doubt better. WIFI was spotty but functional. Facilities were clean. The site was muddy at the time. We camped at Soo Locks Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Rest EZ Campground, Minong, Wisconsin

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

Their name says it all. We camped here for two nights while "on the road" and appreciated the very quiet, peaceful, near the woods location with full hookups. End of September, so only a couple of the seasonal residents were there. Quiet and peaceful. There is limited stuff for kids if that's a priority. There is no laundry, but the laundromat in town was very clean, reasonable and well equipped. Owners are very friendly and working hard on expanding and improving their facilities. WIFI isn't strong everywhere, but we had good signal and fast service at our site. We would definitely repeat if we're in the area. We camped at Rest EZ Campground in a Travel Trailer.
