Pima County Fairgrounds, Tucson, Arizona

Date of Stay: December, 2017 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

This was the first time we stayed at a fairground lot, but we'll look for these going forward. This was a great value. The spaces are basically set up as a large, open parking lot with hookups at each site. Sites are close, like a parking lot, with no foliage/privacy between sites. We only spent one night there and didn't use water/sewer, but our site was level and we used the electrical hookup. I can't speak to the wifi. Restrooms were clean, but many of them were locked (including the one by our site), which wasn't convenient. Maybe they're all open when they're busier? And there is only one shower facility, located in the restroom by the show arena. The showers were clean and had good hot water and water pressure, but there was a dog show the day we were there, so there was a lot of traffic in the restroom while we were showering. Park hosts were friendly, and there are some fenced dog-walk areas, which is nice. There is a racetrack nearby, and you could hear cars as they raced, but it wasn't intrusive, and the park was very quiet in general. We would camp here again. We camped at Pima County Fairgrounds in a Motorhome.

Palo Duro Canyon State Park, Canyon, Texas

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $24.00
Overall Rating:      

We loved this park. The scenery was spectacular, and the park had plenty to do. Based on other reviews, we stayed on the Hackberry Loop. There were both RVs and tents in the campground, and there was a restroom with showers centrally located. It's a state park (not a KOA), so don't be surprised by a bug or two in the bathroom/shower, but the park does work to keep them clean. The sites in this loop are well spaced with a nice degree of privacy from your neighbors provided by trees, etc. and paved with gravel, with some sites being more level than others. The hookups were good, and there was a dump station conveniently located at the entrance to the campground. Note that there is no cell service or wifi on the floor of the canyon, though. We were visited by roadrunners and turkeys in our campground, and we even heard some coyotes in the morning. The temperatures were comfortable in the mornings but hot during the day. We went horseback riding (really nice wrangler team), explored much of the park on our bikes, did some bird watching, and star-gazed at night. We tried to hike once, but the horseflies were vicious and made that activity pretty uncomfortable. If you haven't been to this park, it should be a bucket list item. We camped at Palo Duro Canyon State Park in a Motorhome.

Badu Park, Llano, Texas

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a great option for an overnighter. It's located right on a city-owned park along the Llano River, so it's got a nice view. It's essentially a parking lot with sites marked off, so all sites are paved and back in. It had good hookups, but no wifi. There were no showers that we saw, but we had plenty of over-the-air TV stations, and there were restaurants right on the other side of the river. There is a hike/bike trail along the river, as well as a park for kids. The park was quiet while we were there, though. Payment is self-pay on the honor system by putting cash in an envelope. Price is great for the value. We would definitely stay here in the future. We camped at Badu Park in a Motorhome.

Rainbow Lake RV & Resort, Ruidoso, New Mexico

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

Our site was nice, and the campground location was very convenient to downtown - just minutes from restaurants and shopping, but customer service was lacking. When we made our reservation, no one told us there was a Good Sam discount (we're new RVers and don't always remember to ask), so we missed out on that. We arrived in the afternoon to find a note saying the office was closed due to illness, and no instructions for incoming campers was provided (for example, an envelope with directions to our site, bathroom lock combination, etc.). We tried 3 posted contact numbers (several times), all of which went to voice mail. Eventually a park host responded with the bathroom combination, but he didn't mention that it was different from the laundry room combination, so we were locked out of there. There are only 2 bathroom/shower rooms, so if 2 people are showering, no one else can use the restrooms or showers. The restrooms were clean, though, and showers had great hot water. Hookups were solid, but wifi was weak - often wouldn't work. And over-the-air TV reception was weak. When we checked out, staff was friendly, but check-in situation was less than professional, so we're unlikely to stay here again. We camped at Rainbow Lake RV & Resort in a Motorhome.

Heritage Village Campground, Custer, South Dakota

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $24.00
Overall Rating:      

We would definitely stay at this campground again. We had a view of the Crazy Horse monument from our site and were just minutes from the tourist area of Custer. The campground was quiet and well maintained. We stayed 2 nights, and with our Good Sam discount, our total with tax was just under $50. Sites are graveled pull-throughs. Hookups were solid, but there is no privacy between sites. We could not get any over-the-air TV reception, but wifi and cell (Verizon) were strong. The bathroom/shower room was clean, large and well-lit. Showers are large with great hot water, though there is no curtain or separate area to separate your dry clothes from the wet area. The laundry room was comfortable and clean; we got quarters for the machines from the front office. Staff was friendly. We camped at Heritage Village Campground in a Motorhome.
