Ceraland Campground, Columbus, Indiana

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $36.00
Overall Rating:      

Once you get into CERAland, everything is very nice. More on that in a moment. A heads up: the entrance is on a county road that literally takes you through a corn field. Though the road is paved, it is only about 1-1/2 lanes wide, meaning that if you were to meet oncoming traffic, things could get very interesting. Fortunately, the road is not very busy so that shouldn't be much of a problem.

Now for the park itself. Pros: The sites are all back-ins, but they are very wide. Most of the sites are very shady. The campground feels very peaceful, about like many state parks we have visited. Unlike many state parks, there are a lot of activities you can participate in. Most of these cost an extra fee but there is lots to do here if just sitting in the woods is not enough for you. There was plenty of room on our site to park the car next to the motorhome without feeling cramped.

Cons: Most sites are back to back, and that means that the hookups tend to be all the way in the rear of the site. I needed an extra section of sewer hose to make the connection. As some others have noted, many of the employees seem to be teens working part time. I am glad to see teens working, but they don't always know how to be as helpful as they might be.

There is a $2.00 per person entry fee into the gate the first time you come in. Once you get checked in, your car pass will get you in and out of the gate without having to pay that $2.00 per person fee again. They don't guarantee wifi in the campground, only at certain hot spots (which they don't identify). I was able to connect at times via wifi, but most of the time I just relied on my cell phone; I had good coverage with Verizon here. We camped at Ceraland Campground in a Motorhome.

Columbus is about 10 minutes away. The park has a golf driving range, trap and skeet, frisbee golf, miniature golf, pool, a lake with paddle boats, archery, rifle range, and plenty of room to walk or ride a bike. Several playgrounds for kids. Most of these activities charge an extra fee, but it is fairly reasonable.

Elizabethtown Crossroads Campground, Elizabethtown, Kentucky

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $31.00
Overall Rating:      

As others have noted, this looks like an old KOA, but it does appear that the owners, who live on property, and working to keep the place up. It is in a residential area, but once you are on property, it is very easy to forget that. There are lots of trees, which is a very good thing unless you want to use satellite TV (which we don't). The wifi was quite good at our site. Although we didn't go in, the pool looked clean and quite inviting. The interior roads and the sites were gravel, but no problem at all. The only down side is that the power pedestal was quite tall and the site quite narrow, so being able to get our main slide out required some careful positioning of the motorhome. Fortunately, our site was long enough that I could do that and still keep the car hooked up. Overall, this was a very nice place for an overnight stay: and probably longer. I wouldn't hesitate to stop here again. We camped at Elizabethtown Crossroads Campground in a Motorhome.

Jellystone Park at Coyote Ranch RV Resort, Wichita Falls, Texas

Date of Stay: February, 2017 - $50.00
Overall Rating:      

We have stayed here several times before, so it was interesting to see the changes. The park looks first class. Like most in this area, there are no trees just full sun, but the pads and the power pedestals look new (even though I know they aren't). There are several Jellystone themed areas and, when weather permits, a nice pool. There are just two downsides here. It is located on a frontage road, so to reach it when you are headed north on 287 you have to go past, go up to the next exit, and then come back down. If you are leaving here southbound, you have to make a similar detour. Since that next exit is only 1 mile north, it is not that big a deal, just something to be aware of. The other big disadvantage is they have Tengo Internet, which is synonymous with PPP (painfully poor performance). The internet is free, but it is worth what it costs. I just my Verizon data card most of the time because Tengo just isn't worth the trouble. But the park is nice and a good place to be either as a destination or as a place to plan visits to Wichita Falls. We camped at Jellystone Park at Coyote Ranch RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Abilene RV Park, Abilene, Texas

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

The owners live on site and they are working constantly to make sure the park is satisfactory. All of the sites are dirt, with a little grass between sites, so it can get a bit dusty in dry times and a bit muddy when it rains. Other parks in the area are similar or worse, so that is not a down side. Wifi here is now excellent, thanks to the owners' persistence. The park is very convenient to most things in Abilene - 20 minutes or less drive - and it is in a safe area, very convenient to I-20. We are staying here for several weeks, and if I am back in Abilene I'll be back here again. We camped at Abilene RV Park in a Motorhome.

Hitchin Post Corral and Campground, Cottondale, Florida

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a great place for an overnight stop. The owners are on property and are exceptionally hospitable. This is a fairly new park; some of the growing pains show. Yet the loving care of the owners shows as well. The roads and the sites are all hard-packed sand, but that should not be a problem. The jacks on my 28,000 pound motorhome went in about 3/8 inch, and that after several hard rains. You do need to drive slowly; the roads are a little bumpy, but not bad at all. All of the utilities worked well. The wifi is exceptional; this is the best we have found in an RV park outside of Disney, and they don't charge Disney prices. It is very convenient to I-10 and to US231. While I-10 was clearly visible from our site, the road noise inside our motorhome was not a problem. Even outside we could carry on a conversation in a normal tone of voice. This was our first time here. I suspect it will not be our last, and I expect that I will see continued improvement each time I stop. We camped at Hitchin Post Corral and Campground in a Motorhome.

Heartland RV Park & Cabins, Hermosa, South Dakota

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $32.00
Overall Rating:      

The good news: they honor Passport America with no limit on the length of stay. The park looked well maintained. The bad news: the interior roads are very tight for a motorhome. For units on the north end of the camp, you will get sewer smell from what appears to be an open cesspool if the wind is right. The sites are so short you can't park your car with your motorhome. We had to literally park across the road from our motorhome. There is grass between sites, but the sites are so close together we could literally hear people talking in the next rig inside their travel trailer with all of their doors and windows closed. The big down was the wifi. It was beyond question the worst I have ever experienced at a park. When I complained to the staff, their initial response was "it's just kids streaming video and we can't help it." When I tried to explain that would not cause the problem I was experiencing, they basically just said they didn't want to be bothered. I even offered a potential solution, but they didn't want to hear it. It was that attitude, as much as the abysmal wifi, that really turned me off. Most Passport parks I have stayed in have been great. This one is an exception. We camped at Heartland RV Park & Cabins in a Motorhome.

Even though the park was in town, it felt more relaxed and welcoming. There was a nice grass area in between sites, and there was more room to relax outside than in many parks we visited out west. The laundry room was very nice and the swimming pool was very welcoming. Wifi was slow, but it usually worked. This was a nice place and I would not hesitate to come back here.

St. Mary / East Glacier KOA, St Mary, Montana

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $56.00
Overall Rating:      

The office staff were very friendly. I had several special needs and they did their best to accommodate us. I appreciated that. Though it was too cool for our tastes to try to use the pool, it did look nice and clean and we could tell that the hardy souls braving water and cool air temps were enjoying it. The sites were adequate. Our pull through barely had enough room for our motorhome plus our tow vehicle. And the site was narrow - I had to move some timbers to be able to turn into the site as we were entering. The down side was that the wifi was pretty poor. It was usable but just barely. The plus side is that this is a very convenient location to Glacier National Park - both entrances. We camped at St. Mary / East Glacier KOA in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

By all means, do go to Glacier National Park. However, bring your supplies with you. St. Mary MT does have a grocery store, but it is rather minimally supplied. The campground is almost as well equipped. The Canadian side of Glacier is easy to get to, but in our opinion, it is no more beautiful than the American side. It's worth a trip if you have the time, but don't feel cheated if you don't have time (or a passport).

7th Ranch RV Camp, Garryowen, Montana

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $38.00
Overall Rating:      

This is on a working ranch. The staff was very friendly and did their best to answer my questions about the area. It is about 3 miles from the Interstate exit, but most of that you are paralleling the Interstate on a good 2 lane road. There is about 1/2 mile of gravel road to get to the ranch, and all roads (and sites) are gravel, but this is very do-able if you just slow down. The campground is very hilly, but the sites are mostly level. It is pretty basic, but still very nice and the work-campers do their best to keep it nice. We camped at 7th Ranch RV Camp in a Motorhome.

Absaroka Bay RV Park, Cody, Wyoming

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $60.00
Overall Rating:      

The park is very much in town and feels crowded both inside and in the surrounding area. The sites were very short. It was possible to park (our tow vehicle) on the site only by parking parallel to the road. Most campers had to do that, so the roads, while adequate even for a motorhome, felt tight. Basically, this is a big parking lot with hookups, but it is convenient to see Cody, and that is definitely worth doing. The wifi worked but only intermittently.

Big Timber KOA, Big Timber, Montana

Overall Rating:      

Very convenient to the Interstate, though the driving directions may not be very clear. The staff were friendly and helpful. There were quite a few trains passing by; I like trains, so that was no problem for me, but if you don't like trains it could be trouble. The park seemed to be in the middle of getting ready for the season, so there was work to be done. There were several campers who appeared to be permanent residents, but they kept their sites nice for the most part. Overall, this was a fine place to stop for the night. We camped at Big Timber KOA in a Motorhome.

Yellowstone Grizzly RV Park, West Yellowstone, Montana

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $42.00
Overall Rating:      

This place is spotless. The grass around the sites looks almost as manicured as a golf course. They do run sprinklers every night, so you might be careful what you leave outside. Outstanding service. I needed some limbs trimmed so I could get my slides out; the park maintenance person was at my site checking it out before I could even walk back from the office. Several times I needed to purchase items from the town and the office staff were very helpful. This park is only 1 mile from the West Entrance to Yellowstone, so it is very convenient to the Park. Travel time from here to most of the major sites is about 1 hour, unless you get in a "bison-jam." Then all bets are off. The wifi here is good. However, it is only free for two devices, so you may have to choose. Very good cellular service (Verizon) if you need that. We camped at Yellowstone Grizzly RV Park in a Motorhome.

From the West Entrance to the Grand Loop road is 14 miles. The Madison River parallels the West Entrance Road most of that way. Breath-taking scenery. Many great spots for fishing, if you have a Wyoming fishing license (most of the park is in Wyoming). There are two grocery stores in West Yellowstone. You might not find the brand or the variety you are accustomed to, but you can find the essentials at either of the two.

Colter Bay Village RV Park -- Full Hookups (Concessionaire Operated) , Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $60.00
Overall Rating:      

The full-hookup portion of Colter Bay was very wooded and beautiful. Sites were mostly, but not completely, level. If you must have satellite TV, you probably won't be happy here. There were lots of trees everywhere. Wifi was not available except in a very few of the common areas, and cellular service was poor at best. I was able to get into the site and get my slides out but doing so required careful positioning of the motorhome to miss the trees. However, the campground was clean and the staff was friendly. Considering the number of people who are in and out, they do a good job. The woman with whom I spoke during check in was particularly helpful in letting me know where everything was. I wouldn't hesitate to come back here again if I were to return to Grand Teton NP. Just don't plan on any internet access.

Fort Collins North / Wellington KOA, Wellington, Colorado

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $46.00
Overall Rating:      

The park staff was very helpful. For example, a branch on a tree was too close to one of our slides; they quickly trimmed the branch for us. Every time I had a question, the staff was very happy to respond. Some have complained about the smell. There is a feedlot behind the park, and sometimes there is an oder of livestock. We found that most of the time, the smell was not that strong; it was simply a farm-smell. Every once in a while, depending on the wind, the smell was a bit stronger. I guess if you are a city person, that might be a problem, but for a country boy, even at the worst it wasn't all that bad. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again for the views, and for the great service. We camped at Fort Collins North / Wellington KOA in a Motorhome.

This place personifies western hospitality. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The park is small, and the facilities are limited, but it is fine for a one-night stopover.
