Buffalo Gap Guest Ranch & RV Campground, Medora, North Dakota

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $37.00
Overall Rating:

The CG is 6 miles EAST of Medora off exit 18. This is NOT the Buffalo Gap STATE Park. When you exit....GO STRAIGHT and do NOT turn LEFT. Camped in a 41ft MH. All the Big Rig sites are level. All have 50 Amp service. Power is FINE....no low or high voltage. Other than the 1 1/2 mile of gravel road (drive it at 15 MPH), that is the only disadvantage. No WiFi at the sites, only in the office/bar. CG is well maintained and grass is cut. You are OUT in the "boonies". But there is more DUST (been there) at the Medora CG due to the traffic. Would stay here again. We camped at Buffalo Gap Guest Ranch & RV Campground in a Motorhome.

The Medora "Pageant" is now more of a "Variety" show than an outdoor or docudrama. Total singing and dancing and band and a feature act. No history about TR or such. In 2011, it was half and half. Do the Matinee (3:30 Tue - Sunday) TR - One Man Show. Worth the $15 entry fee. IF you do the Pitch Fork Fondue at the Medora Musical, you get $10 off. The Loop Road into TRNP is under construction for the first 6 miles. Go LATE in the day. Wildlife abounds. We have seen Elk, Mule Deer, Bison, Prarie Dogs, Antelope, Coyote, Wild Horses. No Eagles. Second visit to the area. It is pitching itself as as "Mayberry RFD" alternative to Branson, MO.

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

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $91.00
Overall Rating:

This is a very nice park. However, the rates are high considering that the WiFi is non-existent. If you are charging $100 per night (No KOA discount), you should invest in infrastructure and have adequate WiFi. The staff is fairly young. Mostly high school or college. Many on Work Study programs from foreign countries. Called the CG and told them a USPS package would be coming. Verified address. USPS tracking showed package was delivered 2 days PRIOR to arrival. They could NOT find it. Had to visit the office TWICE and finally it "appeared". My name was correct. They had even "noted" the arrival date and my site number. BUT, it got "LOST" in the back room. The CG is owned by a couple. The lady is sharp. She straightened out the KOA "home office" on our Value Kard. However, the main staff is not that well trained. We had to elevate a small issue to her level to get it fixed. We were in the sites across from the pool. These sites are NOT level. One 45 Ft MH had the front tires raised 12" off the ground. Our Air Level (not Jacks) suspension did not have enough travel. We were a bit "sloped" but could not move. We camped at St. Mary / East Glacier KOA in a Motorhome.

East Glacier is NOT as crowded as the West Side. Go to the Many Glacier. Lots of wildlife there. Take the "two boat" tour from the hotel. Really cool.

West Glacier KOA, West Glacier, Montana

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $120.00
Overall Rating:

This is a PREMIUM or "RESORT" KOA. The rates attest to it. The sites are level. We were in a 41 ft. MH. Maneuvering is a bit tricky as folks don't know that their tow vehicles or such are blocking the road or making pulling out a major issue. We were in a DELUXE site with patio awning and table and fire ring. The sites are very CLOSE....but nicely landscaped. The staff seems competent....although it took us asking questions to get our first night reservation connected to the subsequent nights. The MAIN complaint: WiFi. Do NOT list your KOA as a RESORT and have the atrocious WiFi that we had. We were in Site 24 and it was a JOKE. You could not sign on and had no bandwidth. Even a simple task like getting emails with NO attachments or pictures was impossible. If you are TRULY a Resort....invest in the infrastructure. Very Convenient. The Red Bus Tours (not all....the longer ones) pick up and drop off there. Stock up on groceries in BEFORE you get there. The "largest" grocery in Columbia Falls is a farce. They break down prepackaged items (Snack Packs that are factory packed with three containers and sell for $4.50). They were selling them, individually for $3.50. Lots of things for the kids or grandkids to do. Would have been great with our grandkid, except they would have been totally disappointed with the WiFi. Power was load sensitive. Have a Surge and Voltage Protector. Voltage would drop to around 105 - 108 if we used two ACs and the microwave and water heater and the washer-dryer. Had to manually manage the load to keep the protector from shutting down. The HOTTER it is...the worse. We were "first in line" from the main disconnect. Distribution seems poor and would hate to have been at the end. We camped at West Glacier KOA in a Motorhome.

Jamestown Campground, Jamestown, North Dakota

Date of Stay: July, 2011 - $32.00
Overall Rating:

The one mile gravel road, if you are towing a car behind a motorhome, is really bad. You have to drive very slowly. The campground is really not that bad. We did not notice the road noise from the interstate, but we were in a motorhome with the AC on at night some. The sites are great and level and the water pressure and electricity are fine. Makes a great overnighter. We enjoyed the buffalo museum and the village. Lots of interesting stuff there. Would definitely stop here again. We camped at Jamestown Campground in a Motorhome.

Medora Campground, Medora, North Dakota

Date of Stay: July, 2011 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

There are only two full service campgrounds near the entrance to Theodore Roosevelt NP. This one is run by a foundation. It is a nice park, not great. It is on the river, which is the problem. There was a major flood in early June. All the sites have silt on them. Not a problem when it is dry, but if it rains: WATCH OUT. You will need slip on boots for the family as the mud will build up 3 inches on your feet. This may be the norm for any place around town as the soil contains a lot of bentonite clay. Roads have some pot holes, especially on Bully Circle. As long as it is dry, it is great. But MUDDY when it rains and it takes a while for the soil to absorb the moisture and dry out. We camped at Medora Campground in a Motorhome.

Devils Tower / Black Hills KOA, Devils Tower, Wyoming

Date of Stay: July, 2011 - $47.00
Overall Rating:

Read the entire rating. Had it not been for the sewer smell, this would have been a 9 or so. The voltage, even though the park was moderately full, was fine. The park is well maintained and grassy. The roads could use a little gravel in some spots, but even after a hard rain, there were only a few puddles and a few pot holes. Maneuvering is OK...very wide. The problem is the septic system. At first, I thought the smell (which my wife and our neighbors noticed) was coming from folks not using collars as most of the travel trailers had their sewer connections hooked up full time. Then I walked around, and the sewer drain field (where the grinder and pumps are located) has a very PUNGENT odor. I had talked to the staff about checking on the folks in front of us for a sewer drain collar and he said, "It is the heat". What he meant is that the drain field does NOT have enough clay cover so that the sewer gases come up. Also the manhole cover is not sealed. The smell is not an issue when there is no wind, but the prevailing wind is from the rear to the front and it blows most of the time. The view is awesome. But if you want to stay outside, then you are at the wind's mercy. As a matter of interest, the tent site area totally surrounds the drainage field. Do not know what the answer is, but the septic system really destroys a great park. We camped at Devils Tower / Black Hills KOA in a Motorhome.

Minneapolis Northwest KOA, Rogers, Minnesota

Date of Stay: July, 2011 - $38.00
Overall Rating:

The temperatures were in the low 90's and the AC Voltage (we were on 50 amp) was LOW. So much to the point that our voltage protector cut off. Other sites, with protection, were having the same problems. Finally moved to one site and it was low, but above the cut off level. A storm came up and a tree toppled onto a travel trailer. The owners came out and took pictures, but did very little to assist. The owner of the travel trailer did most of the work and finally, with a tractor, got his trailer out of the way. We would probably camp here again, however, for overnight only, there is a Cabelas in Rogers with dump facilities. We camped at Minneapolis Northwest KOA in a Motorhome.

Harbortown RV Resort, Monroe, Michigan

Date of Stay: June, 2011 - $46.00
Overall Rating:

This campground DOES qualify as a resort. The pads are all concrete. The road is asphalt and there are NO potholes. The roads are wide and the sites are long. We had NO issues getting in or out. All the pads are LEVEL. The restrooms and showers are new, if not, they are so well maintained you would think so. Folks have commented on the trains. We heard the trains and an occassional whistle, but this was not an issue. There are lots of children's activities and the pool looked great. We visited The Henry Ford in Dearborn both days and used this as a base. We would definitely come back and spend more time in the area at this GREAT RV Resort. We camped at Harbortown RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Overall Rating:

We made an overnight stop here. Great campground. Very well kept. We had a large pull through site with full hook-ups. Owner is very courteous. Grounds are nicely maintained. Did not have any issues leveling. Would stay here for an extended time if there were activities in the area for us. We camped at Fort Chiswell RV Park in a Motorhome.

Hearthside Grove Motorcoach Resort, Petoskey, Michigan

Date of Stay: June, 2011 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

This is a luxury Motor Coach resort. It is everything you would ask for. It has a clubhouse with a pool and hot tub and fitness center. It does NOT have public or common showers or bath houses. We were in a very nice and almost new 40 foot motorhome and we were the smallest in the resort. Lots of Prevosts. We got a special FMCA rate (50% off) that runs for the months of May and June. Booking during the "Season", which starts in July, is TOUGH as most owners have come back. The staff is friendly and they have a full breakfast every Tuesday morning and get together. The Petoskey City Park is also nice, but many folks park there fulltime and you MIGHT not get a site. We camped at Hearthside Grove Motorcoach Resort in a Motorhome.

Rivers Bend Campground, Iron Mountain, Michigan

Date of Stay: June, 2010 - $24.00
Overall Rating:

This is a good overnight campground. We did not have sewer, but did have a pull through and the dump station was convenient on the way out. The Wi-Fi was good, but we were close to the office. Grounds are well kept. There are a LOT of permanent rigs on site. Do not know much about area, but the electric was good and the cable TV was good. There is a river, but there are sites on every foot of it. We camped at Rivers Bend Campground in a Motorhome.

Coy Lake Campground , Upper Queensbury, New Brunswick

Date of Stay: August, 2009 - $27.00
Overall Rating:

Quiet little campground with easy access off the TransCanadad Highway. Had a pull through site, but it was not long enough to keep the towed vehicle hooked up. Campground is clean and was quiet. It filled up quickly on Sunday evening. We just spent the night here, but there are a lot of things to do in the area. The restrooms looked a little small for the number of sites, but were clean. We would stay here again. We camped at Coy Lake Campground in a Motorhome.

Bar Harbor / Oceanside KOA, Bar Harbor, Maine

Date of Stay: August, 2009 - $75.00
Overall Rating:

There are two sections of this campground: actually two "separate" campgrounds, about 2 miles apart. The "woodlands" section is wooded and quite crowded: sites are very tight! We spoke to campers who said they would only camp on the "ocean" section. We were three sites back from the water and the view was excellent. There is a lot to do here. They have a lobster dinner each night that is comparable to the local lobster pounds. Need to look carefully at the map and know which site you have. We would definitely stay there again. Kayak rentals are cheaper in Acadia park where the waterway is on a lake, but if you want to kayak on the bay, then it is very easy here. We camped at Bar Harbor / Oceanside KOA in a Motorhome.

Moorings Oceanfront RV Resort, Belfast, Maine

Date of Stay: August, 2009 - $62.00
Overall Rating:

The ocean front sites are unbelievable. We got one where we were less than 100 ft from high tide. Truly one of the most beautiful views we have had. A lot of full timers and part timers were there. Very friendly folks: they have a bring-your-own-food cocktail party on Fridays. Staff is very friendly. Only drawback is that the owner will not allow a hosed-connection at the dump station so you can flush your waste tank. Asked about that and was told a no-no. Be prepared to eat all your evening meals there as the view is so great. Good tables and fire rings. We camped at Moorings Oceanfront RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Merry Meadows Recreation Farm (formerly Morris Meadows), Freeland, Maryland

Date of Stay: August, 2009 - $48.00
Overall Rating:

We spent three nights here in a motorhome. Generally the campground is well maintained. However, we rated it lower due to the "atmosphere". The campground is run like a boarding school. It took an extra 20 minutes to check in due to the owner (who has a reserved parking space with a large Towing Zone sign). There is a deposit on the gate key, which is required to let you out. There are signs everywhere! As to the site: it was large and roomy and the hookups were in great condition. However, the entire campground is covered with Poison Oak and Poison Ivy! You cannot maneuver around the campsites with out brushing your rig into the Poison Ivy which grows like branches on a tree. I am very allergic to it. I made a comment to the staff and they replied they knew it needed to be cut back, but the owner would not understand. This place is very convenient: but if we had to stay there again, we would request a site in the open (non-shaded) area. Had to walk carefully around our motorhome and would have left if the grandkids had been with us, because they would have been in the stuff all the time. Mosquitoes were not a problem. We camped at Merry Meadows Recreation Farm (formerly Morris Meadows) in a Motorhome.
