Winterset City Campground and RV Park, Winterset, Iowa

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

We really enjoyed this city campground. The city's Park and Rec director happened to be on site when we pulled in, and he was very pleasant to speak with, and was very helpful. The site we were in was close enough to level that it was no trouble at all to get leveled. The sewer connection at each site is not threaded, which I wish were never the case, though it is not a huge deal. The park was quiet and very peaceful during the night that we stayed. The sites have a nice amount of room between one another, and the grass throughout the park is in great shape. We really enjoyed the Winterset and Madison County areas, and plan to return in the future. We camped at Winterset City Campground and RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

The area has much to offer, as most would be aware of. The Chamber of Commerce on the NE corner of the square was a good starting point. Driving around to all of the bridges was one of the most enjoyable days we have had.

Sandy Beach Camp, Solon, Iowa

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

Nice CoE park, very pretty. Was full over Memorial Day weekend. The sites have 30 amp electricity only, and there are water spigots at the base of a couple water fountains spread out here and there throughout the park (they are not really near any of the sites, so lots of hose would be needed if using to fill up). Dump station was easy to access. We were able to get a few OTA channels, but the AT&T signal was weak enough that no data could be used. The gravel site was pretty level, and clean. Would stay again if in the area. We camped at Sandy Beach Camp in a Travel Trailer.

O'Neill Regional Park, Trabuco Canyon, California

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

This is a nice campground. Staff at the main gate were friendly and helpful. Very few campers during the week, however this place is always full on the weekends. The vast majority of campers here are tents, popups, etc. The site we had barely fit our 30' trailer, and there was no shot whatsoever of keeping the truck in the spot as well. This place was very busy during the weekend, and really an RV felt out of place to me, in the sea of tents. Fresh water was available near the site, and the dump station was well placed. We had a major ant problem as our stay concluded, and fought ants in the trailer for many days afterwards. Take measures to (hopefully) prevent ants when staying here! I did like the setting of this park, and would return. It was great to "get out of the city" and find this park. Very peaceful place. We camped at O'Neill Regional Park in a Travel Trailer.

Mountain Valley RV Resort, Heber City, Utah

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $55.00
Overall Rating:

One of the 2-3 nicest RV parks we have ever been in. Just outstanding in every aspect. I have never seen sites so wide with concrete (S section) that you can drive the truck through the site even with the trailer sitting in place. This park is immaculate. Gated 24/7, requiring all vehicles to enter the code to access even the front office. We always enjoy finding places that have an adult section, and even better that the adult section has its own clubhouse and pool. It truly does appear that "no expense was spared" when building this resort. The cable TV here is excellent, both in picture quality and number of channels. Wifi worked great. Our dogs enjoyed the HUGE dog run, and ran and played like I have never seen. The office is well stocked, I was glad to find an ice cream freezer with many options. We would drive quite a long distance to return to this park, making sure that we could stay as long as possible. I believe I have given 2 or 3 "10s" ever. If this place doesn't deserve a 10, then such a rating doesn't exist. We camped at Mountain Valley RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Iron Horse RV Resort, Elko, Nevada

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

We have stayed here previously, and were glad to find that the park is still in great shape upon this visit. Office staff was top notch upon check in, and offered a choice of several sites. The property is well kept, clean, and secure. We usually make Elko a stopping point for the day, so that we can stay at Iron Horse for the night. We would certainly enjoy staying at the park for a longer period of time if we ever decided to spend a few days in Elko. We always walk up the hill and eat at the Hilton Garden Inn, using the discount offered by Iron Horse. We camped at Iron Horse RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Gold Ranch Casino & RV Resort (formerly Terrible's Gold Ranch Casino), Verdi, Nevada

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

We have stayed in the Reno area previously, but somehow had never discovered Gold Ranch. We were very glad to have stayed there this time. The entire property is very easy to navigate, and is a great location just off of I-80. Office staff was very friendly and accommodating. The RV park is in great shape, and the sites are long, level, and have a nice amount of space between them. The grass is in fine shape. I loved the availability of food options at the casino, and found the main restaurant to have good food and even better prices. We will definitely plan to stay at Gold Ranch when visiting Reno again.

Castaic Lake RV Park, Castaic, California

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

We stopped here for an overnight while traveling I-5. The staff was alright, and they appear to try hard to keep it up. Pool area looked nice. Tons of full timers here, and they appear to be allowed to pretty much do as they please. I was amazed at how much "stuff" was stored around RVs in many sites. Even saw one person with old junk stored on top of their RV. Overall, it makes the entire place feel much more like a trailer park than an RV park. The price is way too high, but I do realize that they have location going for them. The small grass patch at each site is a recycled piece of athletic field "astro turf". Dogs are not allowed on any of the grass nearest the office, and I was told to walk our dogs out the front entrance and use the grass area near the road. I can't imagine returning to this park in the future, unless we were desperate to hook up to utilities for the night. We camped at Castaic Lake RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Mitchell Resort and RV Park, Perrin, Texas

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

I have reviewed this campground previously, but feel compelled to again leave a review, for the purpose of letting others know that this RV park continues to be "at the top of its game". I have never encountered owners/operators of an RV park that care more and work harder at keeping their facility in top notch condition. We have camped here a few times each year for the past few years, and each time we go back, I notice something else that they have done, as far as installing something new or improving something existing. I have always enjoyed myself at Mitchell RV Resort, and really do appreciate that Doris and Kevin go out of their way to make sure that everything is as good as it can be, and that everyone is enjoying themselves. I give them major credit for being willing to try new events, and for working so hard to put on the many events that they hold throughout the year. I just love that this place has "something for everyone." The atmosphere feels as "laid back" and safe as any campground I have ever stayed in. I said in a previous review that they have the best wifi of any RV park I have been in, and that still holds true. The number of "networks available" is enough that they don't all fit on one screen when "searching for a network to connect to". There is just so much to like about Mitchell RV Resort, and I always look forward to going back. This review is "glowingly-positive", I know that. I don't work there, and am not affiliated with them at all. I just really like to "get the word out" to fellow campers when I come across such a top notch campground. We camped at Mitchell Resort and RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

McGowen Recreation and Wildlife Area, Bloomfield, Iowa

Date of Stay: October, 2016 - $14.00
Overall Rating:

This is a decent campground to stay in. Of the 12 sites, the outer 4 "pull through" sites are the longest. The 7 pull throughs and 1 back-in in the middle rows are of various length. A couple sites might be long enough to stay hooked up, but the rest would require disconnecting the truck or car. I believe all of the sites would require leveling, as none of them appeared level to me. The gravel roads and sites were in good condition. There was a paved patio with picnic table at our site, as well as a fire ring. Water pressure was fine. 30 amp receptacle at the box was dirty, preventing a good connection, so we had to plug into 50 amp instead using an adapter. No dump station on site is a bummer, but there is a dump station on the other side of town at the Fairgrounds that is available. This park was quiet and peaceful, with nice scenery. $14 cash fee was placed into a drop box. 9 of the 12 sites were occupied during our stay on a Friday night. We camped at McGowen Recreation and Wildlife Area in a Travel Trailer.

Amarillo Ranch RV Park, Amarillo, Texas

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $39.00
Overall Rating:

We arrived late at night. Our reservation packet was waiting in the after hours box, and I observed that they also had a board for available sites for those arriving without a reservation. My first thought when I saw our site was, "There's no way that entire area is one site?" Yep, it was. The pull through sites near the dog run area are the widest/roomiest sites I have seen in a campground. Very long, and very wide. The two rows of pull throughs face each other, with RVs pointed at each other. To exit, you just pull forward and turn out, driving through the middle lane. I imagine some people have been confused by this, as the middle lane is just dirt/grass, as opposed to clearly being a "road". Entering the site was weird, as you have to go up over a curb. I liked this park just fine, but it was a bit unusual. The sites themselves were gravel, with cement pads behind your RV, at the rear of the site next to the curb. I guess that is intended to park your tow vehicle or other car on, if you are staying there long term? I really don't know... It almost seemed like perhaps things used to be laid out in a different manner. At any rate, lots of room to maneuver and spread out. The sewer was too far forward in our site, so much so that I did not even hook up to it. I did notice that other sites had the sewer placed further back, as it should be. The two dog run areas were large, but the grass was badly in need of mowing. The office and store were nice, and the indoor pool looked nice. There is a huge lawn and covered patio behind the office building that would be great for a picnic or play area if you were there with a large group. All utilities worked fine. Did not use cable TV. Windy as heck the night we were there. The park was safe, check in/out was easy. I would stay here again if passing through Amarillo. We camped at Amarillo Ranch RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tiger Run RV Resort, Breckenridge, Colorado

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $70.00
Overall Rating:

Super nice place. We stayed only one night passing through, and were very tempted to stay longer, and would have if not for prior commitments. I have not stayed in an RV park as nice overall as Tiger Run. Beautiful scenery, beautiful sites, tons of amenities, etc. We so badly wish that we could have stayed longer, as we didn't really even explore the park, clubhouse, etc. Our site was not perfectly level, but leveling up wasn't difficult. The grass was in great shape, as well as all of the landscaping throughout the park. The office staff were nice. As an owner park, there are certainly a higher percentage of people firmly in place, as opposed to frequent turnover of sites each morning. There were some high dollar rigs in this park, as well as many nice-looking cabins. I didn't see anything at all in this park that would detract from the rating. The price is high, yes. But for what it is, and where it is, that is "the going rate". We would return to this park and spend as much time as we could in the future, gladly. Tiger Run is in my top 2 of RV parks visited in my travels, mainly because of how picturesque it is. We camped at Tiger Run RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

We explored Frisco to the North. Beautiful Main Street. We had dinner at 5th Avenue Grille, and sat at an "out of the way" table on the outdoor patio, with our small dogs sitting at the foot of our table. They loved sitting and people watching. The food was excellent. A person could spend a day exploring the several blocks of Main Street Frisco.

Grand Junction KOA, Grand Junction, Colorado

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $46.00
Overall Rating:

I really liked this park. We pulled in after the office was closed, and found the after hours check in board to be informative and helpful. The pull through site we were in was very nice. Level, with gravel that was smooth and easy to walk on. Short fences separated the sites, and the site had a decent sized grass patch next to the cement patio, which we always seek out for the dogs. Utilities were fairly well placed, with only the fresh water hookup being a bit odd as it is a few feet over into your neighbors' site, but no big deal, just need a moderate length of hose. We did not use the wifi or facilities, so I cannot comment on those. A park attendant was very pleasant and helpful on the morning of our departure. He filled a propane tank for me and brought it right back to the nose of our trailer on his golf cart, when he could have just as easily said, "here you go", and let me carry it back myself. He also asked if running the sprinklers for a few minutes on the grass area in our site would be any problem; I noticed that he has to go up and down the rows and manually turn on/off the sprinklers for each site. I thought it was not only considerate of him to ask, but also something that you certainly wouldn't see at most parks (a lot of places seem to just run the sprinklers on a timer with no regard for whether the water would be interfering with someone getting ready to leave, etc). I wish I would have asked the man for his name, as he deserves recognition for a job well done in assisting guests. All in all, this park felt really safe, and was a fun place to stay. I enjoyed it enough that I will likely make it a point to pass through Grand Junction again to stay for at least a night on a future trip. We camped at Grand Junction KOA in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed one night when passing through the area. This park has a lot of full timers. Front office staff was helpful in responding to my request to change sites after our initial site was a few feet from the dreaded "chained up, barking dog". The park is neat and clean overall, the sites are level, and utilities well placed. We found Elko to be a nice looking town (certainly the cleanest looking town across I-80 in northern NV), and we would return to Iron Horse again without question if passing through the area.

Canyon Trail RV Park, Boulder City, Nevada

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $36.00
Overall Rating:

We arrived late at night (early morning actually), and I am always pleased to find "some type" of after-hours procedure at a park. Information was well posted and easy to understand, as far as available sites and how to get to them. Park host came around shortly after we pulled in, to check up and see if we needed wifi code, etc. Very few parks have someone patrolling about at 1:00 in the morning; I appreciated the fact that he swung by to see if everything was suitable. We did not use wifi, cable, pool, etc, as we just slept for the night and then departed in the morning. Pull through site was level and easy to get into, all utilities worked well and were well placed. Park is in nice shape. I would certainly return if in the area again.

Oasis RV Resort, Amarillo, Texas

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $36.00
Overall Rating:

We have stayed here once previously, several years ago. The park still looks great. We were only there for a brief stopover this time, so we did not use wifi, cable, or any of the office amenities or food service. I like that Oasis is easy to get to off of I-40, and the fact that a Love's is just up the road. The park is safe and clean. The only thing I noticed about our particular spot this time around is that the sewer hookups are way too far forward in the sites (I have not read back through previous reviews, but I suspect that is a common complaint). If you disconnect and put the trailer all the way forward in the site and park the truck behind that, it would work OK (if staying for awhile). However, for an overnight stop, wanting to stay connected, it requires pulling out into the road and blocking the lane in order to be able to dump the tanks (or I guess you could use 40' or so of sewer hose extensions....). At any rate, minor sticking point, and certainly will not deter us from returning to Oasis in the future. We camped at Oasis RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.
