Jonestown / Hershey NE KOA, Jonestown, Pennsylvania

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

Very easy on, easy off. Walking distance to fast food and convenience stores, as well as on-site restaurant (did not try). Our site was a bit strange in terms of how it lined up with others, but it was fine for one night. Service was what I would call laid back, but it was courteous and they lead you to your site. There is a creek for canoeing, but for us it was just an overnight stop. I thought it was a little pricey for the amenities offered. We camped at Jonestown / Hershey NE KOA in a Travel Trailer.

The RV Resort at Carolina Crossroads, Roanoke Rapids, North Carolina

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

Great option for a quick overnight. As we drove up, it lacked curb appeal and looked like a big parking lot. However, as you enter you see that there is in fact some landscaping, a nice little heated pool and a very nice bathouse. Office hours are 9-5 so if you arrive past 5, you have to choose your own site from a map and either put money in an envelope or pay in the morning. There is a no-frills option with no cable (and antenna did not pick up much) and no concrete pad. Our site was a bit off-level and took some fiddling to level up. Wifi was poor in the evening unless you sat outside office, but improved overnight. Rate was very reasonable, and we would definitely stay here again.

Ocean Lakes Family Campground, Myrtle Beach, South Carolina

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $80.00
Overall Rating:      

This is our third time at Ocean Lakes (2005 and 2011). Since our last visit, they have added an impressive water park and improved their wifi. Sites are relatively wide (at least in 4000 section, maybe less so near the beach) but not long. It is pricey, but there is so much on offer. Even had on-site RV service (installation of vents). Still one of our favorites. Biggest irritant - nightly fireworks being set off around 10 pm by whomever on the beach with impunity. So inconsiderate of people trying to sleep. We camped at Ocean Lakes Family Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Camping des Aulnaies, Saint-Roch-des-Aulnaies, Quebec

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

Impeccable. Nicest campground in Quebec? Definitely a cut above. Lovely campground...very nicely laid out. A real resort feel. We were in L section, which has lovely large sites but which is quite far from the action (WiFi available at Reception area only, far from pool, restaurant, mini golf, etc). If you can get a spot in section B, you will be close to the pool and also the WiFi! We did eventually find some shortcut paths, though, which helped to cut the distance. One nice feature, is that the (paved!) road is marked with a dotted line to lead you into your section. That was very helpful! Play structures for kids are worthy of municipal installations, let alone a private campground...top notch. And there are several play areas throughout. On-site restaurant with reasonable prices, but did not have a chance to eat there. Nothing else in walking distance in terms of restaurants or groceries, but you can drive to St-Jean-Port-Joli in about 10 minutes (groceries, Home Hardware, and famous for handcrafts). Because there is always room for improvement: Hubby found the shower stalls very small, making it a not-so-pleasant experience for someone of larger stature, although did not bother me (and you have to pay for showers, which seems quite common in Quebec). Already planning to come back for a week next year. We camped at Camping des Aulnaies in a Travel Trailer.

Emmett KOA, Emmett, Michigan

Date of Stay: July, 2012 - $43.00
Overall Rating:      

Maybe it is because we are on day 47 of a 48- day road trip, but despite the fact that I prefer modern, resort-type, urban campgrounds, I loved this nostalgic family-oriented campground. Our site was grass, but it was level, facing the lake. It seems that you have to pay extra for some activities (and there were lots for the weekend) which could make it quite pricey. It was near the highway, but far enough to be quiet. If I lived nearby, I think I would come every weekend with the grandkids. Pavilion was very nice. They could use more washroom and shower facilities, though. Always full. Not enough for size of campground. We camped at Emmett KOA in a Truck Camper.

Terry Bison Ranch Resort, Cheyenne, Wyoming

Date of Stay: July, 2012 - $34.00
Overall Rating:      

We enjoyed our experience at this park, which is basically a working ranch that allows RVs, not a resort that decided to add some bison. With that in mind, I found it charming and enjoyed walking around seeing the animals. The on site store had some neat stuff. There is a train ride out to see the herd and we were able to feed them. The price stacks up to other parks and services I have seen. There was road noise and the site was not as level as it should be, but I still recommend it if you are open to a rustic site with some novel experiences. We camped at Terry Bison Ranch Resort in a Truck Camper.

Wendover KOA, West Wendover, Nevada

Date of Stay: July, 2012 - $42.00
Overall Rating:      

The park was basically all gravel. Our site was level, washrooms were fine. Short drive for groceries and gas. Not much else in town other than casinos. Best wifi I have ever had in an RV park (we were very close to the office so maybe that helped - but it was as just about as good as at home.). Good for an overnight. Close to the highway, so some noise, but I am getting quite used to that! Quite expensive for the area, I thought. We camped at Wendover KOA in a Truck Camper.

Salt Lake City KOA, Salt Lake City, Utah

Date of Stay: July, 2012 - $42.00
Overall Rating:      

I loved this campground as soon as we drove in. Nicely laid out with grass and shade trees. Nice clubhouse and appropriately sized pool. A cash-operated RV and car wash on site. Friendly, efficient staff. Free shuttle to Temple Square (but you must be visiting the Square, which makes sense, because the shuttle is run by the Church). We took it all 3 days because there is so much to see on the Square and the driver and accompanist provide lots of friendly information, which is interesting. (We also saw a parking lot that takes RVs on the corner of North Temple and 200 West, a few blocks from downtown for $3 a day if you prefer to drive, which is quite easy in Salt Lake City.). Next to Temple Square is City Creek Mall, which is very nice. This park is a very convenient base for visiting the city, and we would definitely stay here again. We camped at Salt Lake City KOA in a Truck Camper.

Reno KOA at Boomtown, Verdi, Nevada

Date of Stay: July, 2012 - $38.00
Overall Rating:      

I am rating 7 because the view from my site was one of the most beautiful I have had from a site. We were at the back, overlooking a small river, with beautiful mountains in the distance, and a train track flanking the mountain. When the train went by, it was pure magic. However, there are some deficiencies. Bring groceries, because there is not much at KOA, nor at the Chevron mini mart (I got the only loaf of bread). There is no longer a shuttle to the casino, but it is not far (albeit uphill). The pool was small, and the water was cloudy (algae). The worst was that the office closed at 7 p.m., and along with it, most washroom and shower facilities. From 7 p.m. to 8 a.m. there is one toilet for ladies and one for men. And this was very far from our site. They need a second building. You also cannot start laundry after 5 p.m. Site was not level, sprinkler drenched the chairs I left on my site, and I could not get on Wi-Fi until 10:30 p.m. By 7:30 a.m., it was once again inaccessible. Cable was excellent, though. But that view. I think I would go back just for that, but I hope they solve some of the other issues. We camped at Reno KOA at Boomtown in a Truck Camper.

San Francisco RV Resort, Pacifica, California

Date of Stay: July, 2012 - $87.00
Overall Rating:      

Although this park has a heated pool, the overall feel is not resort. It is a paved property with lines. Sites are not wide, but okay. View of the ocean, but it's extremely windy. It is near grocery, pharmacy, and restaurants (walking distance). Good Wi-Fi and cable. Very convenient for visiting San Francisco. They give you directions and recommend the train which is only 3 miles away where there is l Lots of RV parking at $1 a space for the day. Then $6.60 per person round trip. Once in town, you pay for municipal transportation at $2 for bus or trolley or $6 for famous cable car. You can buy a pass. Be aware that there are long line-ups for cable car and very hard to catch one en route as they are full. Price reflects Good Sam discount and is still high. I guess that is the price of convenience in the Bay area. I would stay here again. We camped at San Francisco RV Resort in a Truck Camper.

Moss Landing KOA Express, Moss Landing, California

Date of Stay: June, 2012 - $67.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a nice, little, quiet park. I felt very safe here. Concrete pads, which is always nice. Near a marina where you can take whale tours. You can walk to a natural beach (or drive to a public beach where you can presumably swim). There are antique/collectible shops and a couple of restaurants. Moss Landing is trying hard to create a cute little tourist spot. It is about 20-30 minutes to Carmel, Pebble Beach, Monterey, so a good base for visiting. However, if you have children, there is not much to do on-site. No pool. They ask you to limit your trips to showers to 10 minutes as there are only 2 (which was not a real problem). What irritated me was that the wi-fi was limited to 1 device. My husband logged on to the PC, but when he disconnected, I was not able to log onto my iPad to email a photo to my kids - it associated the user name to the PC only. Overall, I thought it was expensive compared to a resort I had stayed in in Pismo Beach the night before for the same price. My rate reflected KOA discount We camped at Moss Landing KOA Express in a Truck Camper.

Pismo Coast Village RV Resort, Pismo Beach, California

Date of Stay: June, 2012 - $66.00
Overall Rating:      

Attractive park with all the services. A real resort feel. Covered, glassed-in observation decks. Sites level, but some were not that large. A lagoon separates the park from the beach, so you have to exit the park to access the beach, but it is very close. Also close to the pier and Pismo Beach's charming strip of shops and restaurants (Line up withe locals at Splash Café for chowder.). I would give it a 10 except for 2 things: (1) Despite multiple hotspots, Internet signal is inconsistent, and you are frequently dropped. (2). The pool is too small for number of campers. There is a laps-only time from 8-10 a.m, if you miss that, forget about getting in the pool. It is monopolized by kids, playing volleyball, etc. No room for adults to cool off. We camped at Pismo Coast Village RV Resort in a Truck Camper.

Pismo State Beach - Oceano Campground, Oceano, California

Date of Stay: June, 2012 - $50.00
Overall Rating:      

We were disappointed in this campground. I had chosen it based on reviews, but did not realize that North Beach and Oceano Beach were two different components of Pismo State Beach. We had to go to North Beach to dump as there is no dump station at Oceano, and I agree that it looks nicer. Oceano had okay washrooms and decent showers with lots of hot water (minimum 50 cents - bring quarters). The beach is about one bloc, away down the street...but this section is a Vehicular Recreation Area, which means trucks and ATVs churning up the sand. You can feel it as you walk up to the beach, and you really could not spend time there. Water electric is $50 and unserviced is $35. Expensive for what you get. We left early and went to a resort a few miles away. We camped at Pismo State Beach - Oceano Campground in a Truck Camper.

Carpinteria State Beach, Carpinteria, California

Date of Stay: June, 2012 - $70.00
Overall Rating:      

Location, location, location! This campground is right on the beach, while being near to town with groceries, etc. Beach is not groomed, but it is still wonderful. Watch kids play, watch the surfers, catch a sunset. Washrooms and showers are about what you expect from a state park (clean but rundown) and sites are very close to each other: pretty much a parking lot. Those are the only reasons I am not giving it a 10. I would go back in a minute. Note that if you are less than 2 days from arrival, you cannot reserve. You have to show up and hope for the best. You can only get 1 night and then need to go in the lottery the next morning for available spaces. If you are lucky, you will get an unserviced site right next to the beach for $60. We also had a serviced site in the 3rd row for $70 (and there are water electric sites too). Expensive, but worth every penny. We camped at Carpinteria State Beach in a Truck Camper.

Ventura Ranch KOA, Santa Paula, California

Date of Stay: June, 2012 - $44.00
Overall Rating:      

This campground is pretty, nice landscaping against a backdrop of mountains. However, it is a bit off the beaten track. There are peacocks running free on the site, but we did not get to see them. The site was unlevel from back to front, as well as side to side. You had to climb a fair number of stairs to washrooms, and there was no light in the shower, only skylight, making evening showers a bit difficult. The KOA guide says Internet is free, but that is only 1 hour in a 24-hour period. You need to pay $4 extra to have unlimited access for a day. Felt like false advertising. Dump station is inconveniently located, with nowhere to line up without blocking the access road. No pool either. Overall, expensive for what you get. We camped at Ventura Ranch KOA in a Truck Camper.
