Sweetwater Summit Regional Park, Bonita, California

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $33.00
Overall Rating:

We had read an extensive number of reviews on various campground review sites prior to making a reservation. Significant numbers of reviews have been critical of the ant problem at Sweetwater that cannot be controlled by various granular and spray pesticides as well as the use of diatomaceous earth. We mistakenly thought that the diatomaceous earth spread around the perimeter of the motorhome would be effective. This was a huge mistake. Within a couple of days, we were inundated with thousands (no exaggeration here!) upon thousands of ants inside the motorhome and extending from the bedroom and bathroom all the way to the cockpit area of the RV. This became so nightmarish that we departed the site five days early to move to another campground. The ant problem is so severe that when my wife touched a small branch that was in contact with the side of the RV, her arm was immediately swarmed by ants. An additional problem that has been discussed on the various review sites is the problems with homeless persons in the park at night. My wife had an encounter with a homeless person at the restrooms. This is a potentially hazardous situation and since clearly there is criminal activity in the park (beware of theft signs are prominently posted throughout-including the door to every restroom). This should be investigated by the County and by law enforcement. The best tip is to avoid this campground-- you will not be infested with ants and bothered/threatened by homeless people wandering the park at night. We camped at Sweetwater Summit Regional Park in a Motorhome.

Floating Mill Campground COE, Silver Point, Tennessee

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

We have stayed at many COE parks over the past decade and were shocked at the physical layout and cramped conditions here. Motorhomes, fifth-wheels and pull-behinds are crammed in like sardines near the lake. If you have a boat and do not mind being a few feet from your neighbor in an unlevel site, then Floating Mill will meet your needs. Our reserved site (made with due diligence and reading multiple reviews), turned out to be one that cannot be safely accessed with a 42 foot motorhome. We talked to the host and were allowed to spend one night in another site-- could not level and evening power was very low: on average 105 to 107. Our surge protector shut down power once (meaning that it dropped below 104). The bathrooms are ancient and in very poor condition: rusted doors, one toilet did not work, etc. The one bright note is that the hosts were outstanding in working with us and really are clearly an asset to the park. Interesting note: the host said that the first time they came to the park as guests in their larger motorhome, they could not get into their site and left to spend the night at a truck stop. We would NEVER consider staying here again. For anyone who frequents COE parks: this is unlike any that you have seen! And, that is a shame because the lake is beautiful! We camped at Floating Mill Campground COE in a Motorhome.

Camp Mi Casa on the Route RV Park, Carthage, Missouri

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

We stayed here with Passport America rates. All sites are long level pull-thrus. Our site was at least 75 feet long. Gravel sites and roads. The owners are working very hard to make this a great place to stay while visiting the Carthage/Joplin/RT 66 area-- and they are succeeding! Bath/shower/laundry building is as nice as any we have seen in eleven years of full-timing. Beautiful. RV Park is tree-less, which is perfect for us for satellite use and keeping the roof of our motorhome clean. Very easy maneuvering with ease while entering/leaving the park and site. Camp Mi Casa is right on historic route 66 about a half-mile from the Route 66 Drive-In. We would absolutely stay here again if in the Carthage area! This is a great campground with owners who are obviously working very hard to make it even nicer-- very friendly and helpful folks. We camped at Camp Mi Casa on the Route RV Park in a Motorhome.

Office personnel were great. Nice level gravel pull-thru with mature trees; however, trees were not an issue for maneuvering or for slides. Bath facilities were immaculate and look to be recently renovated. We camped at Holiday Travel Park of Chattanooga in a Motorhome.

St Lucie South COE, Stuart, Florida

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $15.00
Overall Rating:

Electric danger!! Upon arrival our electric surge protector indicated an "Open Ground" at the pedestal. We called the office and were told that an electrician would be around "tomorrow". I walked to the office. Same answer. I talked to a Ranger. Same answer. I explained to all-- the extreme dangers from open grounds (rv damage, fire, electrocution, etc). No help. We left and had to travel 40 miles to another campground. They refunded 50%. Pathetic response to a problem that can, and has, killed people. We camped at St Lucie South COE in a Motorhome.

King Phillip's Campground, Lake George, New York

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $55.00
Overall Rating:

When making the reservation over the phone, our campsite was described by the clerk as "a level, gravel back-in full hookups with 50 amp power". What we got was a grass and mud back-in with 30 amp power. It was large enough to handle our large RV-- one of three or four in the RV park that can handle a large motorhome and also has room enough on the interior roads to maneuver into the site. We had disregarded previous comments concerning the same problems with being promised one type of site and upon arrival finding a much different scenario.

If you do stay at this campground: disconnect before you get to the campground. We were fortunate that nobody was also checking in when we got there-- there is only room for one RV at the check-in building and others have to wait on the road. By the time we completed check-in, there were two fivers sitting on the roadway waiting to turn in. The road has a moderate amount of traffic and a very small shoulder-- not large enough to park on, so you will be sitting in the traffic lane under those circumstances. We would never stay here again. We camped at King Phillip's Campground in a Motorhome.

Swan Bay Resort, Alexandria Bay, New York

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

Our site was a level, paved pull-in full hookup site with a nice view of a large grass play area. Many sites are waterfront or water view. Facilities are new and first rate. Pool area is great. There are a lot of planned activities and entertainment. A large grocery store is within walking distance and a gas/diesel station is across the street. The campground is a short drive away from Alexandria Bay and other lakefront towns and villages. People working there are great. One of the nicest places we have stayed in ten years of full-timing. We camped at Swan Bay Resort in a Motorhome.

Foster Creek RV Park & Villas (Military FamCamp), Goose Creek, South Carolina

Date of Stay: November, 2015 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

We made reservations approximately three months in advance-- requesting two things: a level site with satellite usage available. Upon arrival we discovered that the site we had been assigned would not allow for satellite dish use, but even more of a concern was the fact that trees lined one side of the site-- allowing the rv to park but not allowing slide-out deployment without scraping in the trees. The office staff then re-assigned us to another site-- with even less chance of satellite use. Discussions with the park manager only elicited the comment: "How would I know about the trees and lack of satellite in those sites-- nobody ever complained before".

Fortunately, the camp host was exceptionally helpful and assigned us to another site that allowed us to use the satellite dish.

Negatives:

--Two days of light to medium rain flooded many of the sites and standing water was still in place when we departed. Several long-term residents discussed with us the unabated problem of mosquitos during warm weather.

-- Our site had five (5) fire ant hills (we treated them on our own). Several long-term residents discussed with us the continuous problem of fire ants-- a potential life threatening problem to anyone with allergy problems.

-- Virtually zero understanding or information from office staff. This is either a training problem or individual attitudes. With either it reflects a management or leadership (or both) problem. Several long-term residents indicated that that is certainly nothing new.

-- Bottom line: Standing water, insect problems and lack of interest in customer support make this a famcamp NOT worth the fuel to drive to. We will NOT return. We camped at Foster Creek RV Park & Villas (Military FamCamp) in a Motorhome.

Chateau Aux Arc RV Park, Altus, Arkansas

Date of Stay: August, 2014 - $10.00
Overall Rating:

We arrived with another party-- both traveling in motorhomes-- during a strong rainstorm. Most sites were flooded and the power/water/sewer connections were underwater. Once the rain stopped, we attempted to hook up. Of the six sites available, only one had useable power-- 30 amp only and only one site had a functioning sewer connection (all the rest were filled with dirt and totally plugged up). The other motorhome traveling with us hooked up their sewer and water at one site and their 30 amp power at another site. We dry camped for the night and then we both left in the morning (although we had planned to stay for three nights originally). The lady in the office was very nice and only charged us $10 to dry camp for the night. We camped here in a 40 foot motorhome. We will not return. FYI: The entire campground is for sale and the sign has it listed at $195K. We camped at Chateau Aux Arc RV Park in a Motorhome.

Fort Belvoir Travel Camp (Military FamCamp), Fort Belvoir, Virginia

Date of Stay: December, 2013 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

The pros: This RV park is located in a beautiful area right on the Potomac River. The cons: The kids who work in the office are clueless about all things RV with no understanding of hookups, necessity of level sites or even the ability to give simple directions or information about the base. Very few sites are level in any direction (i.e. side-to-side or end-to-end) to the extent that we had to try about a half-dozen sites before we found one in which our motor home auto-leveling system could level the coach. Aside from restrooms and laundry facilities, there are no other amenities in the park itself. Other military RV parks in the Washington DC area are either much cheaper. There are many other superior and cheaper places to stay that do not have the design flaws that cannot be corrected at Ft Belvoir. The management and Fort Belvoir leadership have no idea of what is important to RV'ers. If they did this campground would have been better designed, better built, and more military camper friendly with respect to policies, prices, reservations and cancellations. Do yourself a favor, drive on by and stay north of the city. This is the most expensive military campground that we have encountered in seven years of full-timing and has the poorest site design. We camped at Fort Belvoir Travel Camp (Military FamCamp) in a Motorhome.

Harbortown RV Resort, Monroe, Michigan

Date of Stay: March, 2012 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

WARNINGS: 1. The RV park is located next to RxR tracks with operational trains going by every 30 to 45 minutes. 2. If you must get here on I-75, it is important to note that the interstate is in awful shape-- beyond punishing, it is destructive!! 3. Monroe epitomizes the rust belt-- it is a very crappy town. Those items aside, the RV park itself is extremely nice and would rate a 9 or 10 if not for the facts listed above. If you are not bothered by the horrible trip to get here, by the trashy town and by the trains, then you should like it here. If not, then this is a place to avoid-- which we will do in the future. We camped at Harbortown RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Shenandoah Crossing Resort, Gordonsville, Virginia

Date of Stay: September, 2010 - $85.00
Overall Rating:

The MAJOR problem with both the back-in and pull through sites is that they are NOT LEVEL. In fact, they are so far out of level that the vast majority of motorhomes and fifth wheels camped here were either on blocks OR had one or more wheels off the ground. If camping with wheels off the ground is OK with you, then this place is fine. If you value the structure of your RV and find this unacceptable, then this campground IS NOT FOR YOU! We had reservations for a week and canceled the remainder of the reservation after trying three sites and being unable to level. We also canceled the sales presentation that WE had requested since we had been interested in purchasing here. NOT NOW!!!! Also be aware: many of the pull thrus have the electric/water pedestal and sewer connection at the head of the site (i.e. next to the drivers window!). Again, if this is OK with you and you have 30 feet of electrical cord and sewer hoses, then this set up will work. It was NOT acceptable for us. When we spoke with the front desk representative, she could not identify sites that are level-- stated that we could go look for them ourselves. For $85/night I would expect level sites and front desk staff support and a knowledge level of the campground facilities, even if it means that the leadership/administration creates a tickler file for each site. Many campgrounds of the "Resort" variety have just those capabilities: This one does not. That is just plain unacceptable anywhere-- at these prices it is absurd. The lack of level sites available was a big issue. The lack of concern by front desk staff was a deal breaker both in terms of our staying for our reservation period and in terms of ever considering becoming an owner at this facility. We camped at Shenandoah Crossing Resort in a Motorhome.

Deerlick Creek COE, Tuscaloosa, Alabama

Date of Stay: September, 2010 - $9.00
Overall Rating:

This campground is excellent!! Being a Corps of Engineers campground, there is no sewer, so you need to be comfortable with that when making a reservation. The campground has trails through the woods and around part of the lake. Also, there is a fishing dock. Be aware: sites 36 and higher are either very tight for anything over 30 feet or do not have adequate maneuvering room for a rig over that size. Site 36 has an extremely steep entrance: larger rigs will scrape their hitch and/or ladder. Do not be fooled by the site lengths advertised. We stayed in site #35. That site, along with #34 are fantastic. Lake view, large decks overlooking the lake, and a large fire pit area. Many of the pull through sites are pretty tight for larger rigs. Sites that are good for big rigs would be 9, 10, 11, 16 and 20. Reserve any of those or 334 or 335 and you will be very happy. We will definitely return here in the future. The price of $9/night was utilizing a Senior Access pass. Regular price would be $18. We camped at Deerlick Creek COE in a Motorhome.

This is a fantastic park: every aspect of the park is perfect. I could go on and on about the place, but the bottom line is: this is one of the top five places that we have stayed while full-timing during the last three years. We only stayed for one night while passing through the area, but already have made plans to re-visit the Reno area for two weeks and will stay at Sparks Marina RV Park.

High Sierra RV & Campground, Oakhurst, California

Date of Stay: November, 2009 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed here while visiting Yosemite National Park. The campground is very old and rough around the edges. It has potential that is not being met due to non-existent maintenance. However, the biggest problem is the electricity. The power at our site (50 amps) was so spotty that our onboard management system would not activate the onboard electric grid. This is the only time in 2.5 years that power has been so poor that the RV would not operate while hooked up. We disconnected and used our inverter and generator for the several days that we were there. We only spent nights in the motorhome; days were spent in Yosemite. If we had plans to spend even one day at this campground we would have left after the first night. We camped at High Sierra RV & Campground in a Motorhome.
