Coachlight RV Park, Carthage, Missouri

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $32.00
Overall Rating:

Fast and courteous check-in and escort to site. Paved roads to a gravel site. Narrow but long enough for us not to have to unhook for one night on the way home. We camped at Coachlight RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Just a convenient stop for a night on the way home but if you need to spend a few days, Joplin is a few miles down the road and lots of stores and restaurants around.

Kansas City East / Oak Grove KOA, Oak Grove, Missouri

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $42.00
Overall Rating:

Who needs to count sheep in order to fall asleep! Just count the cars/trucks you can hear going by on I-70, 24/7. The only way this could be any worse is if I pulled onto the median on the Interstate and set up camp there. It took two shots at getting a site as the first one wasn't long enough and we had to go back. The escort wasn't much help since we kept him from driving around in his golf cart and talking to people. While the place is clean it's not a place we could recommend to anyone, unless you're an insomniac. It was fairly close to where we had to be and as a result we stayed for the three days, otherwise... We camped at Kansas City East / Oak Grove KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Des Moines West KOA, Adel, Iowa

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $59.00
Overall Rating:

Way overpriced for an electric only site for one night. Had no choice but to stop here and will not be returning. The campground was clean and quiet but not at all worth the fee. Legal robbery, but it was our choice to stay or keep going. We camped at Des Moines West KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Albert Lea / Austin KOA, Hayward, Minnesota

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $42.00
Overall Rating:

We booked a 3-night stay over a weekend and almost left the next day. Two groups came on our first night and had a drunken party and music concert that night. Nobody in management answered the phone for every hour until 1:00 a.m. We spoke to the office the next day and they offered an apology and a promise that it wouldn't occur again. It didn't and we spent a quiet final two days. Previous complaints about pitted roads into the campground are no longer valid. Repairs both in and out of the park have been fixed and all was well. Sites were long and slightly unlevel, but it was an easy fix. Staff was courteous and friendly. We camped at Albert Lea / Austin KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Minneapolis Southwest KOA, Jordan, Minnesota

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

Was able to get a last minute site on a Sunday night, so that was good. Park was close to full and lots of kids running around unsupervised even at night. Like most KOA's this rule never seems to be enforced. Sites are narrow but we didn't have a lot of options for one night. Had slide problems in the morning and spent the next three and a half days in a motel, and had to come back here again for one night when the problem was taken care of. Fewer children here on a Friday so not the same issues. Otherwise, quiet night. The site for this night was again narrow but as before we had no choice. We camped at Minneapolis Southwest KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Rugged River Resort, Brainerd, Minnesota

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $18.00
Overall Rating:

Admittedly, this was our first stay as a seasonal camper. While we have stayed a long time before at another place, we knew from a previous shorter stay what to expect. To prepare for this trip we exchanged calls and e-mails with the owners before making the decision. On-line reviews were good and using Google Earth the place seemed okay. First, the good news. We never lost power during the time there. However, the loss of water pressure occurred three times and each time we were unable to contact mgt. and had to leave voicemails. The problems were taken care of. We signed a lease, however that was basically a waste of paper. The rules stated a two-vehicle limit. What we encountered was multiple vehicles and boats at many sites creating maneuvering issues on the roads. Trees and shrubs not being maintained and as the summer wore on lots of scratches on our vehicle. The owners are running the place like its a hobby, as they have full-time jobs off-site and are completely unaware of what goes on at the "Resort." Roads are dirt and rock filled and when it rains as it often did, water is everywhere. Once you leave the paved road into the "resort" you pass through a sand pit and drive on a narrow road with rocks, hills, and blind spots to your site. Dogs running off lease and doing their business anywhere they please as well as barking at all times. Trash dumpsters were located in the sandpit and was picked up weekly. Twice a week would have been better. Access to the MS River was non-existent due to grass at the ramp and the canoe/kayak input area was broken. Grass trail access was unusable as the summer wore on due to a lack of maintenance. We finally left two months early and the rate reflects that. We camped at Rugged River Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Camp Faribo Campground, Faribault, Minnesota

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

Weather forced us to change plans. We called ahead and stayed here for one night and hoped the storms in the area would pass us by. They did. OTA TV was enough to track the weather. The staff was very accommodating and thank goodness. We had an issue with our slide and they had someone on site who took a look at it but didn't have the part. They suggested someone local, they came out, then picked up the part and in two hours we were back in business. The staff offered us use of other facilities if need be and offered to extend our staff, also if needed. We were able to get the slide fixed and continue our trip the next morning. Can't say enough about the courteous and helpful staff. If passing through the area, these people deserve a shot. They are accommodating. We camped at Camp Faribo Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Des Moines West KOA, Adel, Iowa

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

A bit pricey for an overnight site with electric and cable. But, somewhat expected at KOA. Clean with an efficient and courteous staff. Gravel site with good roads into the park and easy to get around. Cable was good but the WiFi was not secure so we didn't attempt to use it. Easy to find the KOA as with all of the ones we visit there was excellent signage to find the place. Our fuzzy kids appreciated the Bark Park. There were some concerns during our visit due to weather moving through but the staff had it under control and told us in advance where to go if needed. Strong storms but nothing worse as it turned out. We camped at Des Moines West KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Osage Prairie RV Park, Nevada, Missouri

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

Clean park with very good hook-ups for an overnight stop. We asked for a pull-through and had one that was long enough for our truck and RV. Staff was courteous and efficient. Sites are gravel and the roads in the park are okay. Lots of highway noise from I-49. No cable TV but excellent WiFi. As we were only there one night, I can't speak to the local area. We camped at Osage Prairie RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Memphis KOA , Marion, Arkansas

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

This has gotten to be a tired, old and run-down campground, not indicative of the many other KOA's we've stayed at. The concrete pads, like others have said are narrow and crumbling. Electrical boxes and other in-ground things prevent you from swinging wide into the site to get on the pad. For the third attempt we asked for and received a gravel site. We camped at Memphis KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Not a lot to do here but you can't beat the peace and quiet. We've been here before and the service is as expected. Great all the time. Not a lot to choose from in the area for restaurants but Tucks for BBQ is still the best available here. If we are back in this area again we will be stopping again.

Many open spaces here but they put us in the front row for a 4 day stay. Front row is 60 feet from a busy highway. Park is dusty at times, and lots of seasonal or permanent residents here. No noise from them, just the cars/trucks on the road. We camped at Duck Creek RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Marion Campground & RV Park, Marion, Illinois

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

Close to Interstate but no noise in the campground, unless you hear the trains that go by several times each day. Not a lot of there here but it's good for a couple of days. The WiFi is okay but according to the Office they had a lightning strike and it did a number on their cable. All stations were snowy. A large on-leash dog area for the fuzzy kids was good. Not likely to return here but that's us. We camped at Marion Campground & RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Even though it's a membership park we checked with them and they will rent to non-members if you call ahead and they have sites. We asked for and received a pull-through for the one night. Site 105 was provided and wow, the chalky road dust from other vehicles going back and forth was enough to turn our truck and RV from the original color to white. Anyone know a good RV wash?

As a membership park they have a lot of people living there full-time and while everything was clean it was impossible to sleep in the next day beyond 5 a.m. due to workers leaving for the day. If you're traveling on I-80 go North on I-55 to exit 251, get off and take the service road (Frontage Road) right to the campground.

Dutch Treat Camping & Recreation, Zeeland, Michigan

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

Everything here looked in very good shape and the maintenance crew was on top of everything. Make sure you obtain a street map for Holland as the streets are different from what we consider normal. Downtown can be difficult otherwise and street names can change without notice. Just as we got used to everything it was time to depart. Great time seeing what we wanted but we probably won't return. Only negative was our site was 30 feet in front of the pool and we requested a site further away. They had open sites but told us they were spoken for.
