Blue Spruce RV Park, Grants, New Mexico

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

This park may seem a bit funky but it filled our needs exactly as we stayed here for a week to visit all of the local sights. All of the hookups were adequate and the site was easy to level up on. The rigs are close together and the highway and railroad noise are there but we have had this with us before. The park was excellent as a central point to visit the two national monuments, Route 66 and local pueblos. It is a much better value than another nearby campground. The management was very helpful and made sure everything was right in our site. Both Verizon and DirecTV were attainable from our site. We would stay here again. We camped at Blue Spruce RV Park in a Motorhome.

Cochiti Lake COE , Pena Blanca, New Mexico

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $10.00
Overall Rating:      

We got a spot in the older original campground loop which we have been in before. We used our senior pass. Our site was asphalt and easy to level up on. We like it up here because the sites are further from each other. There is good 50 amp service here and there is water but you will need about 75 feet of hose to reach it. Verizon Cellular is strong here. You can pull in over 60 channels with your crankup antenna. DirecTV is easy to get here because there are no trees in the park. It can get pretty hot here for the same reason. We would stay here again. We camped at Cochiti Lake COE in a Motorhome.

Boulder County Fairgrounds, Longmont, Colorado

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

We were able to be here for the big eclipse. The spaces are both short and very close together. It is very difficult to park your tow vehicle. In our space the water was on one side and the electrical pedestal was on the other. The utilities were adequate. The parking surface is just plain dirt. The manager here was very helpful. The big advantage of parking here is cost and often availability. Most of the commercial parks in the area could cost twice as much. Since this is the county fairgrounds, there are often things happening in the fair facilities. Sometimes, rodeo, barrel racing, Saturday farmers market, bicycle trail, ponds with ospreys etc and etc. Great shopping and restaurants are nearby. We would stay here again. We camped at Boulder County Fairgrounds in a Motorhome.

Robidoux RV Park, Gering, Nebraska

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $27.00
Overall Rating:      

Really nice city campground close to Scotts Bluff National Monument. The park employees are excellent and very helpful. The sites are pretty narrow for some rigs since utilities are very close to the parking surface. The water and electrical here were adequate. The parking surface was great and leveling up was easily accomplished. The scenery is gorgeous right from your site. Great shopping and restaurants are nearby. We would definitely return to this park again. We camped at Robidoux RV Park in a Motorhome.

Lakeside Camping, North Platte, Nebraska

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

The park is good for a one night stay. The cost of a night is $24.00 for a water and electric site with a $12.00 discount for Passport America. Then the hidden charges begin: $2 for a premium length site; $3 for 50 amp service both of which were added in after the discount was taken. Beware when staying here; ask questions! Our total after taxes was $20.38. Our parking surface was weeds, dirt and some gravel. The park is under new ownership and no longer gives an Escapees 50% discount. The water and electric hookups were adequate. We probably would not return here again. We camped at Lakeside Camping in a Motorhome.

Prairie Flower Recreation Area COE, Johnston, Iowa

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $10.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed here on the senior pass discount. The concrete parking surface is absolutely the very best we have ever parked on. There is a nice picnic table positioned on a concrete patio too. There is no water at the site so you will need to fill your tank before parking. The 50 Amp service was adequate and positioned well. This particular site has a great view of Saylorville Lake. The only small problem is the lack of shade from the afternoon sun. We would definitely stay here again in the future. You will want to make reservations if planning to stay during holidays or weekends in the summer. We camped at Prairie Flower Recreation Area COE in a Motorhome.

Pecatonica River Trails Park, Darlington, Wisconsin

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

Great campground with level sites. We grabbed an electrical site which features only 50 Amp service. If you have a 30 Amp rig, you will need an adapter. There is no water at the sites but potable water is available at the nice dump station. The shower building is a state of the art facility. Beautiful park and the town is great. We would return here.

Fish Lake Beach Camping Resort, Volo, Illinois

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $23.00
Overall Rating:      

We are full time RVers and have stayed at many RV parks around the country. This park is almost entirely seasonal campers most of which own park models on their lots. There are a number of traditional rv spots for short term campers and some vacant park model sites available to longer term RVers. If you have children, this is a great place to be. There are a considerable amount of activities for them to engage in. Our granddaughter loves this place. We stayed in a vacant park model site on the pond which is a desirable place to be. The site itself was in a bit of disarray with a mixture of gravel, dirt and weeds to park on. The full hookups worked properly but the faucet needed work and dripped the entire time. The entire park is thoroughly covered with huge trees so getting satellite service can be a problem. The trees however keep it cooler because of their shade. Sites can be difficult to get parked in; most are pretty level though. We would stay here again. We camped at Fish Lake Beach Camping Resort in a Motorhome.

Swiss Valley Park, Peosta, Iowa

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

I don't often award a 10 rating to a park but this one is a beauty. This Dubuque County campground has everything we need. We even extended our stay to cover a weekend in one of their non-reservable sites. If you plan to stay over a weekend or holiday, be advised that this park fills up, so make reservations. The water and 30 amp services we had were as expected. There are no sewer hookups but there is a dump station in the park. We will stay here again in the future.

Kellogg RV Park, Kellogg, Iowa

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

The park changed hands last March and we can see that the new owners are not keeping the park as clean as the previous owners. They need to do a better job mowing, picking up fallen tree branches and other debris. We stayed here last year and we can see the difference; it is just an average park. The hookups were as expected and performed just fine. The park is fine for a night or two. We would stay here again. We camped at Kellogg RV Park in a Motorhome.

Outlet (Melvern) COE, Melvern, Kansas

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $11.00
Overall Rating:      

The park is a lovely one with nice trees but yet open enough to get DirecTV. The park roads in our part of the huge campground were very narrow and could be rather confusing. Our site had full hookups, something COE parks rarely have. All of the utilities performed well. This part of the campground could get crowded and close with sites positioned in an odd sort of way. We would stay here again in the future. We camped at Outlet (Melvern) COE in a Motorhome.

Osage Cove COE, Ponca City, Oklahoma

Date of Stay: April, 2017 - $9.00
Overall Rating:      

This park is off the beaten path but it is on a real nice lake. The campground has numerous poorly maintained sites. The whole park needs some TLC. We got one of the best sites number 12. You have 30 amps electric, no water on site and no sewer. There are a very few water faucets to fill your tank or you can bring in your own water. There are no dumpsters in the campground; they are outside the campground at the dump station. The dump station is well designed. We would stay here again.

We stayed in Cedar Point Campground RV area for three nights. The water and 50 Amp electric hookups were adequate. The parking surface was pretty level. There are trees for some shade. The lake views from our site are beautiful. Our DirecTV and Verizon coverage were great as were the local TV choices. There is an "iron ranger" to pay for your stay. We got the $2/night senior discount. This was our first stay at an Oklahoma State Park and were pleasantly surprised. We would stay here again. We camped at Foss State Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed in the dry camping area for three evenings. We pulled straight into space R-8 so we could enjoy the beautiful view of the Rio Grande.

This is the late season price. The campground host is the best. The 30 Amp electric was adequate but the voltage gets a little low when the park is full and air conditioners are running. Use your surge protector to be fully safe when voltage drops. Water is good. Close to activities and shopping. We would stay here again in the future. We camped at Elks Lodge #2504 in a Motorhome.
