Port A RV Resort, Port Aransas, Texas

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $65.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed here over the Memorial Day holiday and the campground was packed tight. First, the good stuff. The campground is very well maintained and is very clean. There are two pools and a hot tub, which our children enjoyed. The sights are level concrete pads surrounded by grass. No mud, dirt, or sand to be found. Nice. Beach access requires a short drive. Even though the campground was completely full, it was pretty quiet. No rowdy campers, also nice. We spent a lot of time at Mustang Island state beach and, even though it was Memorial Day, we had plenty of space to pull our truck onto the beach and enjoy our own personal slice of beach front property. Now for the not so good. This campground is _extremely_ tight. When you open your awning, it's only 3 or 4 feet from the camper next to you. Parking for tow vehicles was also very tight. Often, some of the full size trucks would be protruding out into the main drive, which made getting in and out with a trailer a challenge. At times, we thought we might not be able to get our trailer through. The spots also did not have any tables which meant eating inside every night. Finally, there are no trees of any sort anywhere in the park, which means no shade. The lack of trees or landscaping detracted from the visual appeal of the park. It's basically just a giant parking lot, albeit with plenty of grass. In conclusion, you could do far worse than this RV park, but you'll come here basically for it's proximity to the beach and overall cleanliness. It's not a destination in and of itself. We camped at Port A RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Miller Creek RV Resort, Johnson City, Texas

Date of Stay: April, 2018 - $38.00
Overall Rating:

This is a great RV park. There is plenty of space between the sites and everything was immaculate. It's very conveniently located near Johnson City in the hill country. Side trips to Perdenales, Blanco, and Wimberly are very easy. Except for traffic noise from 281, the campground was very quiet as well. No rowdy campers anywhere to be found. The campground also had a great communal fire pit with plenty of free firewood. My kids and I had a fire every night. They loved it. I deducted one point on the rating for two reasons: the campground only had one shower/bathroom for each sex. If somebody was taking a shower and you needed to use the bathroom, you were out of luck. Second, the campground doesn't have anything specific for kids. There's no play area and not much for the kiddos to do. If you want a campsite where the adults can sit around while the kids run around, this probably isn't the site for you. There's still plenty to like here and we'll probably be back.

B.J.'s RV Park, Terlingua, Texas

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

BJs is a nice enough park, however, it just doesn't have a lot to work with. The surroundings are very desolate. You are basically camping in the desert, albeit, with full hookups. There's really not much for the kids to do in the campground and the fire ban doesn't help. To be fair, the owners do a good job given the surroundings. The bathrooms are clean and all of the utilities worked fine. As far as location goes, BJs is in a good spot with access to Big Bend NP and Big Bend Ranch State Park. Most of the attractions were within an easy drive. If scores were given based on making the most of the surroundings, I would rate BJs very highly. They achieve a lot with very little help from mother nature. Based on what we saw of other campgrounds in the area, it's definitely near the top of the list around Big Bend. However, I've stayed in truly amazing campgrounds that are blessed with more temperate climates and I can't put BJs in that same league. We camped at B.J.'s RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

The tourist spots in Big Bend are definitely worth it, but make the time to do the scenic drive along the Rio Grande river in Big Bend Ranch State Park. It's definitely worth it, including the hike into Closed Canyon.

Blue Spruce RV Park & Cabins, Bayfield, Colorado

Date of Stay: February, 2018 - $70.00
Overall Rating:

We've been camping for about 5 years now and this is absolutely one of our favorite campgrounds anywhere in the U.S. We keep coming back every year because it is that good. It's off the beaten path, which can be a disadvantage because it takes 10-15 minutes to get to most places on the reservoir. That being said, its remote location is also an advantage because you really feel like you can let the kids run around the campground without worrying about them... and there are lots of other kids willing to join in the fun. It feels like you've gone back in time to those better days when you were a kid. The sites are uniformly great. Plenty of space between them and lots of shade. They have tons of activities for our kids. They just love this campground and so do we. It's so great, we can't bring ourselves to try other places! Oh, by the way, there's world class hiking trails very near to the campground. Try it, you won't be disappointed! We camped at Blue Spruce RV Park & Cabins in a Travel Trailer.

Fredericksburg RV Park, Fredericksburg, Texas

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

We stayed at this park for the first time over the Christmas holiday. Overall, we were very happy with the park. It's pretty basic in terms of amenities, but had numerous other advantages. It's clean, very close to town, quiet, and well laid out. There were no rowdy campers partying and making noise. The bathrooms were spotless and never busy. It's not necessarily the best park for children. There's just not a lot for them to do in the park. But, that's only a minor complaint. We will most definitely stay here again.
