Mountain Views at Rivers Edge RV Resort, Creede, Colorado

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $50.00
Overall Rating:

This is one of our favorite places to stay in Colorado. This facility has a "park" and a "resort". We stayed on the "resort" side. The landscaping is beautiful. The utilities are well laid out and work well for both motorhomes and trailers. The only downside is WiFi doesn't work well on the resort side. It works very well on the park side. We camped at Mountain Views at Rivers Edge RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Portal RV Resort and Campground, Moab, Utah

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $72.00
Overall Rating:

Wonderful park (we stayed in the resort area vs the park area). The normal park sites were very close together. The resort area sites are very spacious. Beautifully manicured place with very nice people. We camped at Portal RV Resort and Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Wonderland RV Park, Torrey, Utah

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

Beautiful family owned park. The owners are very nice and the sites are very good. We were lucky enough to stay in site 12 which is probably the best site on the property. Close to Capital Reef National Park. Not much in the way of groceries close by but multiple choices for fuel. We camped at Wonderland RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Great park. We stayed in the "big rigs" section at the back of the park away from the highway with plenty of space between the sites. We camped at Ruby's Inn RV Park and Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Definitely not a destination place but a great place to overnight when traveling through Texas. The park is easy to find and easy to access. All the sites are level and the place is very well maintained. The host/staff are very nice. We camped at Twin Pines RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Katy Lake RV Resort, Katy, Texas

Date of Stay: December, 2017 - $44.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed overnight on our way back home. It was easy to find off of I-10 and the onsite managers were great. They were extremely helpful and friendly. The sites themselves are large and spacious with concrete roads and pads. Everything is level so setting up is a breeze. We camped at Katy Lake RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

All About Relaxing RV Park, Theodore, Alabama

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

We needed a place to stay for one night. We contacted park via phone while we were on the road and the had a spot for us. It was pouring rain when we arrived but the owner/manager (?) still helped us to our site. The park is small but very well maintained. They had our names on the site welcome board which was a nice touch and gave us a small jar of local jelly. Great place with great service. Easy to find and fairly easy to navigate. The roads are a little tight but if you take it slow there is no issue. We would definitely stay here again! We camped at All About Relaxing RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Triple C's Campground & RV Park (Formerly Chattahoochee/Tallahassee W', Chattahoochee, Florida

Date of Stay: December, 2017 - $39.00
Overall Rating:

We stopped here on our trip to Georgia from Texas. The managers of the park were very nice and stayed in the office until we arrived at 6:00pm. The sites were well spaced and the roads were ok. Looks like they are making some improvements to the park. Great place for an overnight stay and it was far enough from the interstate (couple of miles) that there was very little road noise. We camped at Triple C's Campground & RV Park (Formerly Chattahoochee/Tallahassee W' in a Fifth Wheel.

Paradise RV Park, Vinton, Louisiana

Date of Stay: December, 2017 - $38.00
Overall Rating:

Passing through Louisiana and stopped here for the night. Easy access off of I-10 but the park itself is hard to find. You check in at the Best Western which is behind the casino and truck station. It looks brand spanking new with concrete roads and sites. We were in a pull through that handled my 40 foot 5th wheel and truck without having to unhook. We camped at Paradise RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Oasis RV Resort, Amarillo, Texas

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $34.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed one night traveling back to Austin, Texas from Colorado. Oasis is a very well done RV Park - wide roads, level sites, fully paved, 50 AMP and sewer plus cable TV. The down side is it is in Amarillo which smells like cow dung when the wind is blowing. The park is well run and the management is great to deal with. We always stay here when passing through Amarillo. BTW - the park was full so reservations are advised. WiFi was slow but usable. T-Mobile signal was strong. Easy access from I-40 via exit 60. Great place to stop for the night. Call ahead for reservations as they are typically full. We camped at Oasis RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Elk Meadow Lodge & RV Resort, Estes Park, Colorado

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

I rated this park a 7 because they could do some little things to make it much better but after staying there for 7 years, they don't seem interested in improving it. This could be a world class top RV park easy. The sites are very unlevel and but wouldn't take much effort to fix. The G row which as the best views only has 30 AMP. There is no landscaping around the sites and full of prairie dog holes. The location is outstanding with wide drive ways and good site spacing. I truly wish they would invest some money and make this a nicer place. WiFi was slow and unusable but T-Mobile service was strong. We camped at Elk Meadow Lodge & RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Mountain Views at Rivers Edge RV Resort, Creede, Colorado

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $55.00
Overall Rating:

This was our first trip to Creede, CO. We stumbled upon Mountain Views by accident and we are very glad we did. It is a beautiful park in a beautiful area. The owner is such a nice fellow with quite a vision for his RV Park and RV Resort. We stayed on the RV Resort side in site 258. I can't say enough positive things about this part - probably the nicest place we have ever stayed. The people there were extremely friendly (staff and other campers). The only compliant I have is that WiFi was screwed up and doesn't work well on the Resort side. The staff in the office doesn't explain the WiFi coverage area in the Resort very well during reservations. If you go to the laundry room area - the WiFi is fast and furious! Oh - the laundry room is huge with tons of machines. We will definitely stay there again. Oh - there is no T-Mobile service in Creede. Also you will need Satellite TV as there is no cable. We camped at Mountain Views at Rivers Edge RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Santa Fe Skies RV Park, Santa Fe, New Mexico

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $48.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed 3 nights at Santa Fe Skies. We had planned on two nights but our truck had an issue so we had to add another night. The staff was nice enough to extend our stay at the last minute and we had to move sites which was inconvenient but not a huge deal. They even allowed a late check out on our departure day. Some sites are a little tight and the roads need to be a little wider - IMO - to swing into some of the sites. Very dusty! We camped at Santa Fe Skies RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
