Camp Itasca, Park Rapids, Minnesota

Date of Stay: September, 2014 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

The rate reflects an electric-only site. We stayed here one night so we could visit the headwaters of the Mississippi in Itasca State Park. We didn’t do much more than eat and sleep here, but it was a pleasant stay with a friendly host. We were by ourselves in a big green open space. It was easy to park our 40 foot fifth wheel. Not a fancy park with lots of amenities, but we were here to see Itasca State Park, not to swim or ride go carts. We discovered one day at Itasca is not enough, and we'll definitely be back and stay here again. We camped at Camp Itasca in a Fifth Wheel.

Grand Portage Lodge and Casino, Grand Portage, Minnesota

Date of Stay: August, 2014 - $23.00
Overall Rating:

The price reflects the weekly rate. Since the last review the campground has added wireless Internet. It isn't the greatest, but it is enough to do e-mail and surf. No video streaming and only spotty Skype, which is too bad as there is no cell phone coverage here. It helps if you choose a site next to the Wi-Fi antenna. Currently there is one antenna, though two more are planned. Sites are very large. Water pressure is strong. The grass and lake views are quite nice. The trees are still little so there isn't shade yet. Gravel roads, grass sites. The pool is over at the casino. Looked nice, though we didn't use it. It was a quiet campground, and a great location for catching the boat to Isle Royale. We camped at Grand Portage Lodge and Casino in a Fifth Wheel.

Algonquin Trails Camping Resort, Dwight, Ontario

Date of Stay: July, 2014 - $43.00
Overall Rating:

Sites are large, shady, and reasonably level. There weren't too many folks here and the owner made an effort to put space between the campers. There were several families here, and the kids were having a ball riding bikes and playing putt-putt. There is a pool though we didn't use it so I can't comment on it. The Internet was surprisingly good - and no extra charge. There is, however, a $9 reservation fee, and they charge to use the dump station if you stay less than 3 nights. The gate is locked from 11pm to 8am. The owner is working really hard to make a go of this. There are still some shabby buildings and maintenance issues, but we would stay here again. We camped at Algonquin Trails Camping Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Duke Creek Campground, Cedar Springs, Michigan

Date of Stay: August, 2012 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

After reading the previous reviews we were very disappointed in this campground. It has been a year since anyone has posted, so I don't know if things have changed, but we certainly did not find the park as described in earlier reviews. This campground is mostly a park of trashy seasonals. There are many old, worn out trailers with lots and lots of junk around them. There is nothing wrong with older units, but they should be in good repair, and owners should pick up their trash. Sites have not been maintained, and our site had not been raked or cleaned. We had to remove debris before pulling in. Plantings need trimming and weeding. It's just as well it was too hot to sit outside because the campground is so unpleasant we didn't want to look at it. Check in was efficient and the hook-ups worked well, but we won't be back. We camped at Duke Creek Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Sheyenne Oaks, Leonard, North Dakota

Date of Stay: September, 2011 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

This is also a horse camp for those who want to ride in the national grasslands next door. This may account for the numerous flies which were really annoying. Flies aside, though, it’s a nice park. Easy access big rig pull throughs, though the access road, County Road 23, is gravel. Wide sites. New trees trying hard to provide a little shade. A beautiful setting out in the country. There were no horses here when we stayed here, in fact we were the only campers. I don’t think I’d have like it as much if it were filled with horses, manure odors, whinnies and even more flies. But we found it very quiet and bucolic. We camped at Sheyenne Oaks in a Fifth Wheel.

Bolster Dam Campgrounds, Plentywood, Montana

Date of Stay: September, 2011 - $10.00
Overall Rating:

This campground is also called Boxwood Elder RV Campground. It is a city run campground in the extreme northeast corner of Montana where we could find no other campgrounds. It has 30 amp and water, no sewer. It has pit toilets. A donation of $10 is requested for a site with hook-ups. The telephone number is the number for City Hall. Sites are first come, first served. Sites were decent size and ours was level. A dump station is available at the rest area on the east edge of town. Right behind the dump station is a Lions run campground with about 8 sites with electric and water, but they were too small for our 40 foot rig. The farmland around Plentywood is rich and beautiful, and the town itself is a lovely little oasis in a very rural area. There are grocery, liquor, hardware, and drug stores as well as several restaurants. While not a luxury campground, it was adequate and very welcome for an overnight between Saskatoon and Medora, allowing us to miss the nightmare of traffic and overcrowding that Williston, ND has become. We camped at Bolster Dam Campgrounds in a Fifth Wheel.

St. Albert Kinsmen RV Park, St. Albert, Alberta

Date of Stay: August, 2011 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

This park now has Wi-Fi, and at least two rows of sites have improved surface, though some sites still appear to have rut issues. That said, this is a great place to camp in the Edmonton area. Sites are good size. Sites on the curves of the road are huge. Several sites back up on the river and rec path and are especially nice. Sunsets here are gorgeous. Nights were quiet though there was a train or two. The rec path right next to the park was super. We walked or biked to the Farmers' Market, the grocery store, the mall, and Canadian Tire. The price reflects the monthly rate. We will definitely camp here again. We camped at St. Albert Kinsmen RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Elwha Dam RV Park, Port Angeles, Washington

Date of Stay: August, 2011 - $29.00
Overall Rating:

We camped here for 12 weeks in our fifth wheel. The rate reflects the monthly rate. This is just a little gem of a park, tucked onto a hillside, with a great location for exploring the Olympic Pennisula. Some sites are quite narrow as noted by other reviewers (my only criticism of the park), but other sites are quite adequate. The grounds and wood carvings are lovely. Sun is at a premium because of the evergreens and it varies by site, but we had happy hour on the sunny porch and met some nice folks that way. We overheard several folks complaining about the lack of satellite or cable TV. Come on folks! It's the rain forest, and you're out in the country. Choose a different campground if you need to watch "The Bachelorette". We actually watched a game or two at the bar a mile up the road. The owners of the park are three generations of wonderful women who really go the extra mile to see that you are taken care of. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Elwha Dam RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Desert Lakes Resort Adult RV Park, Tonto Basin, Arizona

Date of Stay: February, 2011 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

Calling it a resort does not make it one. This place is a rock parking lot. There are a few shrubs by the entrance, but not so much as a cactus back by the chain link fence where we were. Lots of road noise, unlevel sites, dogs off leash, very weak water pressure. At a nightly rate of $30 we thought it was overpriced. Sites were reasonably wide but were filled with your neighbors' boats, ATV's, etc. making the park quite junky and ugly. If you just want a place to sleep nights while you fish at Lake Roosevelet I suppose it's OK, but there is no reason whatsoever to come to this campground on its own merits. We camped at Desert Lakes Resort Adult RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Pima County Fairgrounds, Tucson, Arizona

Date of Stay: January, 2011 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

This is a place to park your RV with hook-ups, and that's about all. Sites are narrow - I could touch my slide and that of my neighbor at the same time, and we both kept our shades drawn so we wouldn't be watching one another. Sites are dirt and rock and dusty, though they are level. It was a squeeze to park the truck. Our site backed up to a row of bushes, but most sites are out in a barren field - no trees, no plants, just dust and dirt. Jets from the air force base fly over head, though not at night. The check-in/reservation system is abysmal. They are still using pencil and paper and directed us to sites that were occupied, weren't big enough for our rig, etc. They were pleasant, but truly clueless, and the process took forever with folks stacked up trying to check in. There are no amenities whatsoever. I would stay here if I had an event at the fairgrounds, but otherwise look elsewhere. We camped at Pima County Fairgrounds in a Fifth Wheel.

Canyon de Chelly National Monument, Cottonwood Campground, Chinle, Arizona

Date of Stay: October, 2010 - $1.00
Overall Rating:

All the roads and pads were black topped in early October. Points off for no hook ups and not taking reservations, which is especially inconvenient if you have a big rig and fewer choices of sites. That said, the campground is free, and it is one of the prettiest campgrounds we've stayed at in 3 years of full time RVing. The cottonwoods are gorgeous and offer wonderful shade. The sites are spacious, and the host was friendly. And you couldn't have a better location for visiting Canyon de Chelly. We camped at Canyon de Chelly National Monument, Cottonwood Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Putters Paradise, Snowflake, Arizona

Date of Stay: October, 2010 - $27.00
Overall Rating:

We didn't actually stay here. We had planned to, but when we pulled in, it was very tight for our 40 foot fifth wheel. We probably could have managed the 90 degree back in sites with some maneuvering. But this campground packs in, run down, worn out rigs like rotting sardines. The permanent models are equally bad. The road was nicely paved and the pads were fresh rock, but the camp office and pool area needed attention. We drove on down the road. We camped at Putters Paradise in a Fifth Wheel.

Chautauqua Lake KOA , Dewittville, New York

Date of Stay: May, 2009 - $39.00
Overall Rating:

After two phone calls to this campground, one to make a reservation and one to re-book it, we decided to suck up the $39 and camp anywhere else. Why are these people in the hospitality business? I have never talked with a nastier person in a campground. When I called to make a reservation the woman on the phone told me she couldn't make a reservation over the phone, that I would have to e-mail. She relented, but then told me she couldn't send me a confirmation because she couldn't do e-mail. Later that day I received an e-mail telling me she couldn't e-mail me. Huh? And all of it very nasty. When we needed to re-book because of some trouble with our rig she was even nastier. I'll spare you the details of that encounter. We don't care how nice this campground is... it could be inside the Pearly Gates, but we will never camp here. We camped at Chautauqua Lake KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

France Park, Logansport, Indiana

Date of Stay: May, 2008 - $19.00
Overall Rating:

This is a crowded, messy county park with lots of shabby seasonals. Our pull through site was the best of the lot but still very unlevel. We wouldn't even go into the restrooms to check them out. Hook-ups were located pretty far from where you had to park your rig, but they could be reached. One night was enough, though we had a beautiful bike ride through the country side. We camped at France Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Crossroads RV Park, Mount Pleasant, Iowa

Date of Stay: April, 2008 - $27.00
Overall Rating:

This park is brand new and still a bit raw. The trees have been planted but don't yet offer much shade. The facilities are all shiny, new, and nice. All sites are pull-throughs and level. Easy on and off from US 34 and US 218 is. The park itself doesn't offer many activities such as a pool or putt-putt golf, but it makes a good base for exploring the area or visiting friends or family. They bill themselves as a "day trip destination park". There is a playground for children. We camped at Crossroads RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
