Franklin's Big Country RV Park, Abilene, Texas

Date of Stay: October, 2015 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

We have stayed here in spring and in fall for the last several years visiting nearby family. Many sites are occupied longer term by workers in the area, but there have always been sites for traveling RVers....long, level, pull-through sites with gravel roads. WiFi has improved from previous years. The campground is very convenient to I-20 and far enough off the road to be quiet. We have appreciated the convenience of the RV parts store and helpful employees. This is not a resort with fancy amenities and we are pleased to not have to pay for things we don't use. We camped at Franklin's Big Country RV Park in a Motorhome.

Franklin's Big Country RV Park, Abilene, Texas

Date of Stay: September, 2013 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a fairly new park and seems to cater mostly to area oil and construction workers. However, as we visit this area frequently, we were pleased to find a park in the area that is clean and quiet (sites far enough off I-20), with long pull through and decently spaced sites with no obstructions to parking or satellite reception. Roads and sites are hard packed gravel. Adjacent RV dealership/management is very helpful and friendly. Good cell reception and free WiFi. Excellent long term rates. We camped at Franklin's Big Country RV Park in a Motorhome.

American Wilderness Campground, Grafton, Ohio

Date of Stay: August, 2011 - $35.00
Overall Rating:      

Check-in seemed to be complicated...lots of forms to fill out and sign. Nice, roomy entrance and office but a 90* turn into the gate to the camping area and a long section of road wide enough for only one vehicle and with low hanging tree branches. The roads and our site were "paved" with good sized rock, rutted and with potholes...definitely need gravel topping. Our site and the long grassy area around it were swampy and muddy. The office didn't open till noon so we were not able to use the store, library or get ice. A lot of money for what we got! We camped at American Wilderness Campground in a Motorhome.

Ohio Turnpike Rest Stop-Portage, Portage, Ohio

Date of Stay: August, 2011 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

Designated RV sites are not pull-throughs so we had to unhook our car, but they are wide enough for the slides to be out and the car to be parked along-side. Very handy if you are on the turnpike. Pay cash in a box and get a ticket for the window. Good 50 amp service. Free dump-station at the exit of the RV area. Short walk to the rest area facilities with several restaurant choices, Starbucks, gift shop and restrooms. Traffic noise did not bother us. There were several other rigs there with us. WiFi from the plaza was available for a fee. You may stay in the regular parking lot for free with no hookups. We camped at Ohio Turnpike Rest Stop-Portage in a Motorhome.

J & D Campgrounds, Catawissa, Pennsylvania

Date of Stay: July, 2011 - $45.00
Overall Rating:      

This was our fourth time here. They do have weekly or monthly rates which make it less expensive. While not a fancy park it is very well maintained and the owners and their family take pride in the place, are very friendly and helpful. Lots of shade but trees are very well trimmed for big rigs. Also plenty of open space and room for groups to have active games. Nice mini-golf, playground and pool - with a lifeguard! New free Wi-Fi this year and it works great! Small selection of food and RV parts in the office and a Creme-freeze across the street. We plan to return. We camped at J & D Campgrounds in a Motorhome.

Gorge Gateway Center Camping and RV Park, Fayetteville, West Virginia

Date of Stay: June, 2011 - $35.00
Overall Rating:      

This is one of the very few places in the New River Gorge area that can accommodate a big rig. The location is very convenient to rafting and other adventure activities as well as shopping and restaurants. Only 4 sites have sewer, 21 have water and power. (dump available) There are many cabins and tent sites. Rate is for full hookup, partial is $28. They have weekly rates and offer Good Sam Discount for entire stay. We camped at Gorge Gateway Center Camping and RV Park in a Motorhome.

Swamp Fox Campground, Florence, South Carolina

Date of Stay: June, 2010 - $19.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed here using Passport America. The staff was friendly and helpful and escorted us to our site. The roads were decent and there are a lot of trees, but they were trimmed well for a large rig. We had good power and water, but our sewer connection had been badly damaged by vehicles running over it,so we could not use it. We also decided that our big rig would have difficulty making turns at the dump station, so we just waited till our next stop to dump. It appeared that there were some rigs staying long term, but there were quite a few over-nighters as well. The park is convenient to the highway, but not noisy. We camped at Swamp Fox Campground in a Motorhome.

The RV Resort at Carolina Crossroads, Roanoke Rapids, North Carolina

Date of Stay: June, 2010 - $21.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed here using Passport America and it's exactly what we wish we could find at all PA parks: friendly staff, clean, level sites, no low hanging branches, convenient to highway and easy access, excellent power and water. It has a way to go to be a "resort" but they are apparently working on the clubhouse and other amenities. That can't be easy in this economy! We'd stop here again. We camped at The RV Resort at Carolina Crossroads in a Motorhome.

Sunshine Travel RV Resort, Vero Beach, Florida

Date of Stay: June, 2010 - $17.00
Overall Rating:      

We called twice on a Friday afternoon to ask about a site. Nobody returned our call but we stopped anyway as it was right on I-95. The office was closed when we arrived but there were long "overflow" pull throughs right next to the office with a box of envelopes for payment. The envelope said fee was $30 for W&E (no sewer hookup here) + for cable. Inside the flier it said $17.50 for off-season and we also had it listed in our Passport America directory, so we left a note and a check for $17.50 when we left on Sat. The sign said the office is closed on weekends. We had some traffic noise from the 24 service station next door, but also picked up McDonald's free Wi-Fi. Park was clean and well kept when we walked around in the evening. We camped at Sunshine Travel RV Resort in a Motorhome.

The Boardwalk RV Resort, Homestead, Florida

Date of Stay: June, 2010 - $18.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed here three nights for a jumping off point to the Everglades using Passport America. The streets are somewhat narrow and could use some repaving. We parked on a grass site but in spite of torrential rains it was not muddy or soggy. We didn't even need our levelers. Park has many modular homes. There is an electric gate at the entrance. Luckily we had called ahead and they gave us the code: otherwise we would have been blocking traffic big time. The manager said his company had bought the park last fall and they are working to make many upgrades. He was extremely helpful and friendly. We camped at The Boardwalk RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Saddleback Mountain RV Park, Balmorhea, Texas

Date of Stay: May, 2010 - $10.00
Overall Rating:      

For an overnight stop this place was great. Extremely easy to get in and out of without having to unhook our toad. There are restrooms and a shower in the convenience store, but only vending machines as a dinner option. We were told to pick our own site and had to check them out to find one with sewer in the right place for our rig. Nice and quiet. We'd stay here again. We camped at Saddleback Mountain RV Park in a Motorhome.

South Jetty RV & Camping Resort (Thousand Trails), Florence, Oregon

Date of Stay: October, 2009 - $1.00
Overall Rating:      

We used our Thousand Trails membership to stay here...our first time. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Sewer sites were all taken...most sites are very shady..had trouble finding one where our satellite would work. Wi-Fi did not reach our site, but was available in the Activity Building. Restaurant served breakfast Wed-Sun. Clean laundry...fun area We camped at South Jetty RV & Camping Resort (Thousand Trails) in a Motorhome.

Tonopah Station RV Park, Tonopah, Nevada

Date of Stay: October, 2009 - $21.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a very adequate place to park for a night halfway between Reno and Las Vegas. The sites are first come-first served and most are pull throughs although our tow car stuck out too far beyond our 40' rig so we had to disconnect. Sites were not level, but were asphalt. Wi-Fi was decent in site #9. Very quiet after dark. Nice grocery in complex. Small casino and decent restaurant. We camped at Tonopah Station RV Park in a Motorhome.

Preferred RV Resort, Pahrump, Nevada

Date of Stay: October, 2009 - $10.00
Overall Rating:      

We parked here through RPI. We were charged an extra $3.50 for electricity. The roads are all gravel except the main entry...pretty dusty. Because we were required to park ahead of the red arrow, 20 ft. of sewer hose barely reached. 5th wheels had even more. A very friendly park hostess came to our rig and welcomed us to the park and brought info about the area...never mentioned that we could become members. Many activities were scheduled...likely attended by the long term residents. Park is convenient to shopping such as it is in Pahrump. We camped at Preferred RV Resort in a Motorhome.

White Mountain Resort, Overgaard, Arizona

Date of Stay: August, 2007 - $8.00
Overall Rating:      

We used RPI for this park. The term "resort" is used loosely, there is a clubhouse but no other amenities. Electric voltage was low. It was peaceful and scenic, but a 25 mile drive to Show Low. There was a phone for dialup internet, but no Wi-Fi and cell service needs an antenna. Management was friendly and helpful. We camped at White Mountain Resort in a Motorhome.
