Indian Springs Campground, Hickory, North Carolina

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $17.00
Overall Rating:

First of all, the gravel road leading to the campground is no big deal. After reading other reviews I was expecting far worse. Its just a somewhat steep wide gravel road. There are no low hanging branches and we had no problem entering the camp in a 42 coach towing a car. The key is to just drive slow. The owners are very nice, the campground is well kept and all the sites are level gravel, most are pull thru sites. Utilities were good, water pressure was adequate. Sites are spaced nicely and very long. I had room to park my car in front or in back of my coach. They have some permanent sites, but all are nicely kept. It is a small campground so call ahead for reservations; it is full most nights. You need a gate code to open the electric gate. WiFi worked but was slow, Verizon signal was excellent. It's a short easy drive from I-40 exit 119. I stayed a month so my nightly rate was lower. We camped at Indian Springs Campground in a Motorhome.

Buck Creek RV Park (formerly Buck Creek Campground and Driving Rang, Marion, North Carolina

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $48.00
Overall Rating:

The campground has a bunch of sites around the perimeter of a nice green field of grass. The sites on one side of the field are along a nice river, those are the best. They are all back-in sites. They have 4 sort of pull-thru sites out in the field, it's really more like parallel parking than a real pull-thru, though. All sites are shady except for the "pull-thru" sites. Some sites have cable TV and there is WiFi in the camp. I found the WiFi unusable at times, and other times it worked pretty well. Verizon cell signal is weak but usable most of the time. I felt the price was a bit high for what you get. No pool, dirty laundry room, marginal showers, but the river was nice. At night is is very dark, so bring a flashlight, great for star gazing, though. Owner is nice, but he likes to talk and is not bashful about espousing his views on a variety of topics. Access for big rigs is good, although some of the back-in sites might be difficult for larger units. We chose one of the pull-thru sites for our 42 foot coach. We camped at Buck Creek RV Park (formerly Buck Creek Campground and Driving Rang in a Motorhome.

Tom Johnson Campground, Marion, North Carolina

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

Very nice campground with level concrete back-in pads with nice concrete patios. We stayed a month so our rate reflects the monthly discount. Campground has no amenities except for the shower and laundry room. They have another campground across the road called the rally park, it's mostly used for big events and is basically a big grass field with hookups. We stayed here for a month and almost every afternoon it rained hard. Big storms form over the mountains and roll down towards Marion frequently. The park is well kept and is right next to a huge RV service center which is part of the nearby Camping World. Unlike most Camping World service centers, the people here know what they are doing. So if something breaks, they can fix it, as long as you have lots of money to pay for their rather high rates. The park has an automatic gate that closes in the evening, so if you arrive after normal business hours, make sure you call ahead for the code. Also, there is nobody in the office on Sunday. Calling ahead for reservations is a challenge since it's hard to get anyone in the campground department to answer the phone. Just keep trying and make sure you call during normal business hours, which are limited. We never saw a day when every site was full; most of the time it was about half full. Last year the whole campground flooded after days of heavy rains, but all the damage has been repaired and the grounds look great. The WiFi is not good and only works if you are close to the main building, but the Verizon signal is excellent, 4 bars, so we just tethered off our phone for our Internet. We camped at Tom Johnson Campground in a Motorhome.

The Barnyard RV Park, Lexington, South Carolina

Date of Stay: November, 2017 - $17.00
Overall Rating:

Pretty good campground overall. Somewhat older but pretty well kept. Lots of permanent residents but most keep their rigs tidy and nice. Located right next to a big flea market which is open on weekends only. Propane dealer right next to campground, you can fill up there or they will deliver to your site for free. Utilities worked well, used my satelite so didn't try the cable tv. The park advertises it has Wi-Fi, but unless you stand right next to the registration building you cannot get the Wi-Fi signal at all. There might be a handful of sites up front that can get it but basically, there is no Wi-Fi at this park. Verizon signal was moderately weak at one or two bars, but usable. Bathrooms and laundry are nice and well kept and there is no swimming pool. Office staff not overly friendly. I stayed for a month, the price is about the best you can find for what you get. Would give it a higher rating if the Wi-Fi worked at all. We camped at The Barnyard RV Park in a Motorhome.

Salina KOA, Salina, Kansas

Date of Stay: July, 2013 - $32.00
Overall Rating:

This park is a mix of good and bad. I stayed here 6 nights and some staff are friendly and helpful, but others are not. Most sites are gravel and dirt and all interior roads are dirt. They have about 6 sites with concrete pads. The place is a dust bowl when its windy, and it's windy most of the time in Kansas. Be prepared to keep your windows closed and the AC on. Sites are level and big rig friendly. All hookups and cable TV worked well. Wi-Fi was not good. It was so slow. It was basically useless. Park is right off the interstate so there is road noise. OK for a quick overnight stay, but not one of my favorite places. We camped at Salina KOA in a Motorhome.

Buckley AFB Famcamp (Military FamCamp), Buckley AFB, Colorado

Date of Stay: July, 2013 - $22.00
Overall Rating:

What a shame, such a nice park and it's not maintained. There is no grass, just loads of thorny weeds and dirt. The weeds aren't even mowed and some were over 2 feet high. There is no shade or trees and no Wi-Fi. On the plus side, the hookups are good and the concrete pads are nice. The park is easy to navigate and big rig friendly. The whole park is satellite TV friendly with nothing to obstruct the signal. I also got over 20 stations with my antenna. Cell phone and Verizon air card work well here. They have a park host, but I was told they are usually not here. We never saw them at their camp site. What good is a park host that's not there? I made a reservation and paid via phone. When I got to the base, they had no record of my reservation. Took about 45 minutes to sort out. I would give them a higher rating if they just had someone to look after the park and maybe clean the restrooms and mow the weeds. The place has potential, but at present it's badly neglected. When entering the base come in the commercial gate which is at the corner of Mississippi and Aspen streets. When you approach the gate, take the RIGHT lane. They had an RV try to take the left lane, but it's too narrow for all but the smallest rig. This guy got wedged between the concrete barriers. We camped at Buckley AFB Famcamp (Military FamCamp) in a Motorhome.

Salina KOA, Salina, Kansas

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

First the good, the sites are shady, the cable TV works very well, hookups are satisfactory and seem in fairly good repair, easy to maneuver a big rig on interior roads, conveniently located right off the interstate and Verizon phone and data card worked well. Now for the not so good, the Wi-Fi was sporadic at best, road noise from the interstate was loud, when the wind blows there is a lot of dust (the wind blows often in Kansas). As far as the staff goes, some are friendly and helpful, others are not, it depends on who's working at the time. I stayed here a week and had a mixed experience with them. I would rate this campground as just average, not horrible but not great. We camped at Salina KOA in a Motorhome.

Shady Rest RV Park, Shady Springs, West Virginia

Date of Stay: August, 2012 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

I would rather stay at a Walmart and use the money to run my generator than stay in this place. It's just a bare field with some hookups. If you just absolutely have to have electricity for one night, I guess it would be alright, otherwise find somewhere else. I can't believe someone else gave it a 10 rating. We camped at Shady Rest RV Park in a Motorhome.

Heritage RV Park, Augusta, Georgia

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

The price is right, and for an overnight or short stay in the Augusta area, it's fine. It really depends on which site you get. Sites 39 to 43 are very nice. Others are just OK. Interior roads are sand. Voltage was good and water pressure was fine. Wi-Fi worked well in my site which was pretty far from the office. No cable TV, some sites are satellite friendly, others are not. I didn't see any showers or bathrooms. Lots of semi-permanent rigs and some mobile homes, but everything seemed fairly tidy. We camped at Heritage RV Park in a Motorhome.

The Barnyard RV Park, Lexington, South Carolina

Date of Stay: September, 2011 - $28.00
Overall Rating:

Nice campground. Maneuvering in a 40 ft motor home towing a car was no problem. Sites are roomy and level. Wi-Fi worked well and most sites were satellite TV friendly. Verizon air card also worked well. Hookups were conveniently placed and the power voltage and water pressure were good. I did not use the bathrooms or showers, but the laundry facility was very nice. Office staff was very friendly. Price was reasonable too, my rate reflects the Good Sam discount. Excellent option if you are visiting the area and although it's located in Lexington, it's very close to the Columbia SC metro area. I would stay here again if in the area. We camped at The Barnyard RV Park in a Motorhome.

Kentucky Horse Park Campground, Lexington, Kentucky

Date of Stay: July, 2011 - $26.00
Overall Rating:

I was just passing through and looking for a place to spend the night. As an RV park, this place is average. Pros: the huge number of sites, most back in but some pull through, some shady some sunny, some level some not. Cons: the check in process is odd. You check in at the camp store, but there is really no place to park a big rig and complete the check in process. You have to block the parking lot to park. Once checked in, you're on your own to find your site. I stayed in what they call the "primitive section" which means it has 50 amp electric, but no water hookups. However, there were some water faucets scattered around. There were not really any marked sites, it was more like a big grassy area with trees along the edge. Electric hookups were scattered around and you just pulled up to one, by driving over the grass, stopped and hooked up. Had the ground been soft, it would of been a problem driving across the grass. But it hadn't rained for weeks and the ground was like concrete. For an overnight stopover, its just ok. If you love horses, you'll be in heaven. To me, horses are like cows, they all pretty much look alike and they smell bad. We camped at Kentucky Horse Park Campground in a Motorhome.

Lee Hi Campground, Lexington, Virginia

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

Right off the interstate, however finding your spot after dark can be challenging. Campground is poorly lit and the layout is confusing. Young lady manning the fuel desk where you check in was indifferent at best. Seemed to view campers as a bother and offered no help when we had difficulty finding our site. If you arrive during daylight hours there should be no problem. Pull through sites at the bottom of campground and are the least desirable. They have no shade, are fairly close together, and are right next to the truck parking area. They are fairly level and plenty long for big rigs with nothing to obstruct satellite television reception. The back in sites farther up the hill seemed nicer. Bathroom and shower facilities were reasonably clean, although I've seen better. Good signal from Verizon air card and good cell reception in this campground. We noticed a weak Wi-Fi signal but didn't try using it. All hookups were good and power voltage was strong. No swimming pool or other extras in the campground, however it is fine for a short stay or in you need to be in the Lexington area. Daily rate is high for what you get, however the monthly rate is very reasonable. We camped at Lee Hi Campground in a Motorhome.

Rocky Top Campground, Blountville, Tennessee

Date of Stay: October, 2010 - $38.00
Overall Rating:

Very clean well maintained campground. Owners very friendly and helpful. Sites are level gravel and include a concrete patio and fire ring. Interior roads are paved. Although there is a steep hill to climb when entering the park, it was no problem. Very good access for big rigs and close to Interstate 81. We noted how well lit the entrance was which made it easy for our late night arrival. Wi-Fi was at times unreliable. Part of the time it worked fine, other times it seemed stuck or overloaded. There was some vehicle noise from a nearby roadway, but it wasn't too much of a problem. Verizon cell phone worked well on the Verizon extended network. I thought the price was a bit high, but it seems in line with other campgrounds in the area. I would stay here again. We camped at Rocky Top Campground in a Motorhome.

Princess Wenona RV Oasis, Wenona, Illinois

Date of Stay: July, 2010 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

What a great idea, I wish there were more places like this! This is not a campground, rather, it's a reasonably priced overnight stop that has full hookups. Very easy access for big rigs and located right off the interstate. Although the 6 lanes were close together, one can extend slides if you position your unit carefully. No room for awnings, but again, this is an overnight stop not a campground. RV fuel pumps were available and the restrooms inside were clean. We enjoyed gazing at the miles of beautiful corn fields as far as the eye can see in every direction. We had no problem with noise, in fact, it was very quiet. I would suggest sleeping with your Air conditioner on and windows closed in case someone pulls in next door during the night. For $20 this is a great value and we will stay again if passing through the area. We camped at Princess Wenona RV Oasis in a Motorhome.

Cave Country RV Campground, Cave City, Kentucky

Date of Stay: July, 2010 - $36.00
Overall Rating:

If visiting Mammoth Cave this park is perfect. Easy access off the interstate and close to the park entrance. Big rig friendly with easy access within the park. Nice large sites with plenty of room between camp sites. Excellent power, water and sewer hookups. Our Verizon air card worked well so we didn't use the campground Wi-Fi service. The bath and shower facilities were excellent and so clean, you could perform surgery with no fear of infection. Absolutely the cleanest I've ever seen. Owners were helpful too. We checked out several other campgrounds in the area and this one is by far the best. We camped at Cave Country RV Campground in a Motorhome.
