Holbrook / Petrified Forest KOA, Holbrook, Arizona

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $42.00
Overall Rating:      

Easy access from I-40. Diesel stations are nearby. The park is very clean and the staff attentive. The park was about 50% full and busy. Sites were gravel and easy to park. Great dinner served each night and we enjoyed the great food. Wifi was best we have used this summer. We would definitely return. We camped at Holbrook / Petrified Forest KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Kanab RV Corral, Kanab, Utah

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

The park is small but well designed. Gravel surface with trees. Back-ins were easy--right turn into the park, drive to site and back-in with lots of room to maneuver. Owner is new and friendly--great advice services in town. We have stayed here before. We camped at Kanab RV Corral in a Fifth Wheel.

Mountain Shadows RV Park, Draper, Utah

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

We stay at Mountain Shadows every year to see the G-Kids who live about 20 minutes away. That said, it is a tight RV park with lots of live-in workers who leave early and have lots of visitors on weekends. Parking is the tough issue for the tow vehicle or tag along. Some folks who live there have 2 cars plus a utility trailer. Be friendly. The management really keeps the park clean and everything we needed--FHU works. The access from I-15 is great. Also CW and food stores are nearby. Just don't expect a luxury RV resort. We call early -- usually 4-6 months before we arrive and stay anywhere from 1 to 3 weeks.

I recommend staying on the North side of the main road. We stayed on the South side this time--not again. Sites 180 and 181 are just crammed together. I had to back out of site 181 because of cars and trucks parked everywhere--they were in the parking spots! Site 181 has a large tree on the right and the wifi pole on the right at the other end of the site. My satellite antenna X2 works great on either the South or North side of the main road. We camped at Mountain Shadows RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Santa Fe Skies RV Park, Santa Fe, New Mexico

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

This is our "go to" RV park in Santa Fe. This year we stayed 10 days and enjoyed the 7th night free. The concrete drive way into the park is just the beginning. The pull thru sites are long and level. The wifi is the best we have experienced in years: so good I have not had to use my Verizon Hot Spot. The office staff is knowledgeable and helpful. The park shows the pride the staff takes in keeping the park clean and everything working. Great location for visiting the plaza or going any direction from Santa Fe. We camped at Santa Fe Skies RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Try the Tent Rocks for a great hike: bring plenty of water! And a great geology lesson about the area. At Chimayo try the Rancho de Chimayo for lunch. We did and enjoyed the drive as well as the food.

Easy to get to from I-10. The park has been upgraded for the past few years. Good wifi and cable. The sites are easy to get into and have good parking for your vehicle. The pool was busy even though we did not use it. The café had great chicken fried steak for dinner. We would stay here again. We camped at Fort Stockton RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Hacienda RV Resort, Las Cruces, New Mexico

Hacienda is a top end RV Resort with paved streets, flat sites, and excellent facilities. Its location near I-10 makes it easy to get to and leave. We have stayed here before. It is near La Masilla with good restaurants. Easy to set up satellite television. We camped at Hacienda RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Casa Malpais Campground and RV Park, Springerville, Arizona

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $28.00
Overall Rating:      

This Good Sam park is a combination of park model homes, trailers and 5th wheels with insulation around the underside, older and smaller trailers, and other assorted living quarters. That being said, we got in with our reservation, grounds are mostly gravel with trees, wifi is be best we have seen anywhere, power is good. I would use it as an overnight only and would plan to miss it in the future. We camped at Casa Malpais Campground and RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Moab KOA, Moab, Utah

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $45.00
Overall Rating:      

This is our 5th trip to Moab and 3rd time to stay at this KOA. The staff is excellent and the grounds are kept clean and neat. We were in site 133 that was easy to get set up in and had ample parking for our tow vehicle. Everything: water, electric, sewer worked very well. We did not use the wifi, because we use our hot spot via Verizon. We camped at Moab KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

We took the Dan Mick Guided Jeep Tour. Really great. Picked us up at the KOA and we did the Salt Flat Recreational Area jeep trails. Glad they did the driving. Even though we had been to Moab 4 other times, we still found 3 new things to do and plan on returning.

Don't miss the La Sal Mountain Loop and Dead Horse Point State Park.

Overall Rating:      

We have stayed at Fort Stockton RV Park for several years. The park has continued to upgrade and maintain their facilities each year. This year it is be best we have seen. There were 2 staff members in the office for check in. Very helpful staff. Yes, the ground are in the desert with a few trees, little grass, and gravel parking spots. All in good shape. The onsite café is very nice--the chicken fried steak is great and filling. WiFi is excellent. Cable TV works well. Easy access from I-10 going east or west. We will stay again upon our return trip home. We camped at Fort Stockton RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Kearney RV Park and Campground, Kearney, Nebraska

Date of Stay: October, 2015 - $41.00
Overall Rating:      

We used this park as a one night stop as we crossed Nebraska. It is a very convenient place for a one nigh stop--easy access, services nearby and best of all the Great Platte River Archway is just down the road. Don't miss this outstanding museum that describes the westward migration across Nebraska by people going to California, Oregon, and Utah in the 1840s to 1880s. The park has the best concrete pads we have seen--level -- but the rest of the park is gravel. Still OK for a short stay. We would definitely use it again. We camped at Kearney RV Park and Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This park in on the shoreline of Lake Superior with a cool lake breeze most of the time especially in Sept when we visited. The park is clean but only offers limited RV supplies in the office. Dumpsters are available. Lots of grass and some trees. DISH sat set up worked our site. Munising is a small town that is great for visiting Pictured Rocks Nat. Lakeshore. We would return.

Des Moines West KOA, Adel, Iowa

Date of Stay: September, 2015 - $43.00
Overall Rating:      

This a KOA that is located in the country about 18 miles from Des Moines but is also only about 18 miles from Winterset, IA where the covered bridges and John Wayne's Birthplace is located. The park was only about 1/4 full in late September but the staff was very helpful and kept the park clean. The only issue was our pad site was on an incline from back to front and it meant the rear of the RV was high and we had to lower the front down as far as it would go. We did OK but I think other sites may have had less incline. We had pizza and wings from the park one evening and they were delivered hot and tasty. It is very quiet and the night sky is great. Satellite setup was easy. We would stay here again. We camped at Des Moines West KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Summer Breeze Campground, Iron Mountain, Michigan

Date of Stay: September, 2015 - $36.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed in this RV park with 3 other RVers that we were traveling with. The staff was very helpful and guided us to our location. The park is very clean and the staff even delivers firewood. My wife used the washers/dryers and said they were nice. The location is convenient to Iron Mountain as well as other towns in that part of Michigan. The hookups to E/W/S required longer hoses and electrical wiring but we carry enough that we did not need to borrow any from the park--it was offered for the sewer hook up. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Summer Breeze Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This park is one of very few parks that I have given a 10 rating. This is a large park with large, open parking for large RVs as well as cabins, tent sites, and other sites for smaller RVs. Excellent wifi, power,water, fire rings, sewer connections. Beautiful trees and well kept grounds and roads. The owners were very helpful and wanted you to have a good experience at the park. Lots of seasonal campers but there is room for the RVers who are just passing thru. We camped at Indian River RV Resort & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
