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

Date of Stay: December, 2017 - $28.00
Overall Rating:      

Only stayed for one night. If you are passing through for the night or you are looking for a small getaway, THIS IS YOUR PARK. Park is easy to find right off the highway, has a lighted sign at night, and the roads in the park are wide & clear. Most sites are easy to get into. We stayed at one of their cheaper sites, but the view was still superb. Right on the Mississippi River. Lots of room to walk around and beautiful scenary. The bath-house was very small, and there was a hefty walk to both bath houses. Only 4 bathrooms for over 100 sites. It was cold when we arrived, and the heating in one of the bathrooms didn't work. The showers were also out of hot water. While we didn't use our sewer connection, it appeared that the sewer line was filling up as I saw liquid about 5-10 feet below ground, and pouring a little waste down there made it seem that it was close to overflowing. The individual on the phone was also difficult to understand. I wouldn't stay here for any extended period of time, but it seems like a great place to get away for a few days. We camped at Tom Sawyer's Mississippi River Park in a Travel Trailer.

Louisville North Campground (formerly Louisville Metro KOA), Clarksville, Indiana

Date of Stay: November, 2017 - $15.00
Overall Rating:      

Be aware that you BETTER know how to drive your RV before committing to stay here. Very tight fit. If you have short-term business in the Louisville area or just passing through, you can get away with staying here. They are open 7am-10pm, so late arrivals & early check-outs are ok. Very close to the Louisville area. Otherwise, get ready for a heavy dose of planes, trains, and trucks. EVERY night, there was a noisy train. When the train wasn't running or tooting it's horn, there was a steady diet of planes flying overhead. Spaces are incredibly tight, so if you're here for a long time and your neighbor ties their barking dogs outside their RV at 7am or decides to run their diesel truck for 30 minutes in the morning, there's nothing you can do. At one point, a neighbor's awning was touching my RV. If you have dogs, there's nowhere for you to walk them-contrary to the pictures on their website. While most staff was INCREDIBLY nice & helpful, their kindness was negated by one rude individual whom I believe was the manager. For example, one night my power meter for my electric went out, and one of their nice staff members quickly swapped out the box. However, not only did the box lack a cover over the connection to protect it from rain, but this rude staff member knocked on my RV the following afternoon and told me to immediately shut off my power so the electric box could be worked on. When I said that I couldn't do it right now because I was billing a client on my computer, this individual YELLED at me saying that it was an inconvenience to come back in an hour on my schedule. Looking back, there were some good things about the park. Clean bathrooms, a small convenience store that was open long hours, plenty of propane, lots of friendly staff members, cheap laundry, & water connections that are well set-up for winter. Unfortunately, the few bad things FAR-outweighed the good things. Don't stay here for long periods. We camped at Louisville North Campground (formerly Louisville Metro KOA) in a Travel Trailer.

Spring Creek Campground, Clarksville, Tennessee

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $18.00
Overall Rating:      

Stayed here for a month. They let us pick our spot from open ones. Site was very easy to get into. HOWEVER, the road getting into the campground was NOT easy to get into. You have to go down a 1/4 mile windy road, and if you have a massive 5th wheel, you have to be really careful going around blind spots. It is definitely do-able, as we saw plenty of Class A and 5th wheels come in for daily stays. The daily spots are also tough to get into with the low trees and REALLY tough if there are RV's parked next to you. Most of the spots were quite far from each other with the exception of the corner spots. The quiet campground was beautiful with tons of room to walk around, structures for the kids to play on, and lots of field to let your dogs run. There's a creek in the back that's open and you can throw rocks in the pond, see some small fish, etc. It's a nice location that is close to the highway but not too close to hear the cars. One issue was with availability of the staff. They were nice, and on more than one occasion they brought my mailed packages from the porch inside. Although they have posted office hours, they were rarely available during those hours. They also wanted after-hours check in folks to write their credit card down on a piece of paper and drop it in a box or leave it next to the door. The other issue was with the bathrooms. They were not the cleanest bathrooms we've come across. They did run out of toilet paper more than once during my month stay. I gave them an overall rating of 9 because I didn't really need the staff or use the bathroom much during my month stay, and everything else was above-standard. However, if bathrooms are vitally important to you or something goes wrong with the site, this rating could easily be much lower. I would stay here again and recommend others to do the same. I probably wouldn't stay here if it was just for one night. We camped at Spring Creek Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Point Mallard Park, Decatur, Alabama

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $21.00
Overall Rating:      

Stayed here for 2 weeks. They let us pick our site from all the available sites. Open sites versus shaded sites. The computer was down when I arrived, but they didn't require my payment until I left 2 weeks later. Sites are difficult to back into because of many of the trees. Campground roads were easy to navigate. Once in, the site was great. Lots of room, spacious, no problems. The site was completely covered. Some of trees drop these small succulent items which can attract ants, even on top of your RV. Staff was nice. Have a nice shop for parts. Good location for local attractions. The garbage that I used was a small can next to the common area. We never had a problem with it being full. I'm guessing that in a campground with over 200 sites, there was a larger garbage dump. We just never found it. My only issue with the campground was that the sewer connection was high off the ground (even higher than the tank connection on my RV), so I couldn't leave my grey tank valve open & let it run straight into the sewer. I had to wait & watch my grey tank and then go dump it. I would definitely stay here again and refer others here also. We camped at Point Mallard Park in a Travel Trailer.

U.S. Space & Rocket Center RV Park, Huntsville, Alabama

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $17.00
Overall Rating:      

I've been to the Space & Rocket center many times over many years, and I had no idea this place even existed. Stayed here for a week. Great location right next to USSRC, Huntsville, and I-565. Very quiet - with the exception of the kids blasting off rockets from Space Camp which was cool to see. Trees and shade surround every spot in the park. We stayed here during Hurricane Harvey, and the surrounding trees protected us from Category 1 wind. Staff was accommodating. Didn't like the fact that they were advertising free WiFi but didn't have it. Roads are tight & windy but still fairly simple to traverse. The bent the rules for me to come stay there because my travel trailer was barely large enough to fit in the space they had for me. Therefore, my camper was on a bit of a sideway slant. They force cars that can't fit in the spots to park up front, but they made an exception for me to park in the grass next to my trailer. It was wet when I departed, so I left truck tire marks in the landscape but they didn't say a word. Some of the spots look like they could be difficult to get into, even with smaller RV's. Only thing I didn't like was the water hookup was way below the ground on my site and difficult to connect to. If there was rain or a leak in the hose, the water connection was underwater. In addition, one time they had one another site's power go out, and they had to shut down the power to all sites for an hour. Bottom Line - I would absolutely stay here again and I would recommend others to do the same. We camped at U.S. Space & Rocket Center RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Lincoln Civic Center RV Park, Brookhaven, Mississippi

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

No staff on site, but the owner is REALLY laid back and only asked for payment on the day I was leaving. Told me to just drive in whenever I get there and pick whatever spot I can find. Park is all concrete behind a fence. Couldn't reserve in advance, but apparently the park is never full, so I didn't mind. I only parked here for a few days because I was visiting family in town & didn't even stay in the RV when I was parked there, so I can't really give an accurate review. However, I can tell you that while I was parked there, the water line busted underground on my water hook-up for whatever reason. No one saw it, and since I wasn't there, I couldn't verify why. However, the other park residents came to my spot & cleaned it up for me and connected me to another water hook-up...all while I wasn't there. Owner had it fixed the next morning. I would park here again in a heart-beat when I come back into town. 20 bucks daily rate for a full-hookup is hard to beat, even in Brookhaven, MS.

Hickory Creek COE, Lewisville, Texas

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $28.00
Overall Rating:      

Only stayed for 2 days, but was a BEAUTIFUL campground. Quiet and right on the lake. I stayed in a pull-through site, and it had a fire-pit, table, etc. Just beward that there are no sewer connections and only a dump-station that is pretty far from most campgrounds. However, given I only stayed for 2 days, it wasn't a big deal. We camped at Hickory Creek COE in a Travel Trailer.

Lewisville Lake Park Campground, Lewisville, Texas

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $16.00
Overall Rating:      

Stayed here for 28 days. 30 amp spots were pretty close although plenty of room to pull out your slides. Park was easy to navigate. Fairly difficult to get in the spot if not a pull-through. Also really strict on rules for parking, and the gates close at night, so if you aren't back in time, you have to park across the street. 50 amp spots were spacious and concrete. Depending on your spot, you could have a beautiful view of the lake. Also very close to the lake which was nice. Of course, being Texas, this also means lots of bugs if you stay in the summer. Most of the spots were shaded as well. Facilities are well-maintained, and the staff is accessible. My biggest issue is that there are no sewer hook-ups. You have to drive to the dump station to empty. Part of that is on me because I didn't really read/care about the hook-up situation as this was the first park that I parked my trailer at after purchasing it (first-time RV'er & this was my first RV park I stayed at after purchasing my RV). In addition, you are not allowed to stay longer than 28 days, no matter what. We were leaving the entire state of Texas - maybe for good - and they wouldn't let us stay an extra two days, even if the park isn't full. They also threatened to fine me 5 bucks because I didn't leave the park after check-out time. I was completely out of my spot and was parked on the edge near the lake & away from everyone to check my tires & valves - and they almost tried to fine me. Bottom line - beautiful, quiet park with close proximity to the highway w/o hearing the highway. I would stay here again, and I would recommend others to stay here as well. We camped at Lewisville Lake Park Campground in a Travel Trailer.
