Santa Fe Skies RV Park, Santa Fe, New Mexico

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $45.00
Overall Rating:      

This is our third stay here, so we must like it. Mainly because it is so convenient to everything. Interior roads (and pads) were gravel, and dusty. Office staff was helpful and friendly. Sites were reasonably level. The only negative is beyond their control, it is the wind. The park is on a ridge and subject to strong winds, be careful with awnings! Laundry was fine but a tad expensive ($3 a load). Nice sculptures and antiques to look at and a 1/2 mile walking trail. We camped at Santa Fe Skies RV Park in a Motorhome.

Distant Drums RV Resort, Camp Verde, Arizona

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

This is a nice park with one major exception. Power was poor when we were there, enough that my EMS shut my AC down (voltage dropped to under 104VAC). That should not happen in a new park like this, and it wasn't just me. It is a well laid out park, showing someone designed this to maximize use of space. Interior roads are paved, but a bit narrow. Sites were concrete, just large enough for a big rig, but mine and most others were a bit off level. Enough that I needed to add boards to get level. Hot tub was great. A nice park, but I would not stay here again due to power issues. Our rate was a group rate, we had a rally here. We camped at Distant Drums RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Mountain Gate RV Park, Redding, California

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $41.00
Overall Rating:      

First of all, I screwed up and reserved the wrong dates. And there was a rally going on that had all the larger sites (I have a big rig). Management was most gracious to work with me and others so I had a suitable site. Thanks! All roads are paved and the pads are concrete, level and long. They do have a ramp up in and out so those of you with big rigs with windshield problems might want to keep this in mind. Trees provide shade but also limit satellite access. The park is clean and well organized and I recommend them. I gave a 9 because the park can handle big rigs but it is a bit tight. But no problem, just take care in the corners. We camped at Mountain Gate RV Park in a Motorhome.

Twin Rivers Canyon Resort, Moyie Springs, Idaho

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $33.00
Overall Rating:      

This really is a nice park in the valley. Great for kids. But I would take issue with the road in and out, we came with a 43ft motor home and had a hard time getting down. And even harder leaving. A motor home doesn't bend in the middle, like a truck and trailer... but we made it out. The owner may tell you there is no problem, but if you have anything bigger than 40ft I would recommend you at least drive down in the car to see if you want to go down. However we left after one night (we had 4 nights paid for) because there was no phone, no internet, and only 30A power. We camped at Twin Rivers Canyon Resort in a Motorhome.

Indian Creek Campground, Deer Lodge, Montana

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

This park is conveniently located half way between Yellowstone and Glacier. Access was reasonable, although you have to look to find the entrance. Roadways were gavel and plenty wide. Pull through spaces were long enough and level. BUT: power was bad. On 50Amps, our EMS kept resetting because of low voltage on one leg. By turning off AC we were able to stay the two nights we had booked. But we would not stayb here again. We camped at Indian Creek Campground in a Motorhome.

Mt. Princeton RV Park, Buena Vista, Colorado

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $45.00
Overall Rating:      

We've been to BV many times and usually stay at another park, but friends had booked this one so we joined them. It is an easy access, all gravel campground with spaces that are level and large enough. Owners were flexible and friendly. Rates competitive with other in the area. We liked it enough so that on our next visit to BV we will stay here again. We camped at Mt. Princeton RV Park in a Motorhome.

Snake River RV Park & Campground, Idaho Falls, Idaho

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $45.00
Overall Rating:      

This is an older park and it shows in site spacing. Sites are gravel, but level and easy to access (ours was, other had problems). We were there during an air show weekend, and it was especially busy with every site sold and tent campers everywhere. But we liked the city and the campground was convenient located for our trip to Yellowstone. So it wasn't the nicest park we've been in, but it worked well for us, enough so that if we came to Idaho Falls again we'd stay here again. We camped at Snake River RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

Park City RV Resort, Park City, Utah

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $60.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a very different park. We really like their sister park (Portal in Moab) so we thought we'd try this. A bit strange, the cheaper sites are down below on a gravel road. Our premium site was face in looking out over the valley. A nice place to sit in the evening setting sun. However, the sites for a premium place were quite close together, and traffic noise was noticeable but not enough to lose sleep. A good place for a night or two while visitng Park City. We camped at Park City RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Bayfield Riverside RV Park, Bayfield, Colorado

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $45.00
Overall Rating:      

The owners of this park strive to make a very friendly and beautiful park, and they succeeded. Office help was courteous and friendly. The flowers and park like layout are unusual and very pretty. The sites are gravel and level. Our site was close to a neighbor, but we didn't get a premium site. Our rate is a weekly rate. We camped at Bayfield Riverside RV Park in a Motorhome.

Yellowstone Grizzly RV Park, West Yellowstone, Montana

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $75.00
Overall Rating:      

This is how all parks should be laid out. From the entrance, which has plenty of pull-through spaces while you register, to the sites themselves. They are gravel but level. All interior roads are paved and wide. Each site has curved entry/exit making access super simple. Yes, it is a bit expensive but everything in west Yellowstone is. This is simply a great park. In 9 years of full timing, this is one of the very few I have given a 10 to. We camped at Yellowstone Grizzly RV Park in a Motorhome.

Texarkana KOA, Texarkana, Texas

Date of Stay: March, 2017 - $41.00

Don't use your GPS to get here as the ramps have all changed. Take the 223 exit from the east and you'll be fine. Long gravel pull throughs, easy in out. Interior roads easy to navigate. But if you like quiet look elsewhere, it's right next to the freeway. But it is convenient to Texarkana. We camped at Texarkana KOA in a Motorhome.

Graceland RV Park & Campground, Memphis, Tennessee

Date of Stay: March, 2017 - $45.00
Overall Rating:      

This is an RV park for Elvis fans. It's close to Graceland, you can walk there from the EV park. Spaces are adequate gravel and level. WiFi was good. The neighborhood is a bit questionable, but there is a 24 hr guard at the entrance. So if we ever wanted to see Graceland again we would stay here again. We camped at Graceland RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

Nashville East / Lebanon KOA (formerly Countryside Resort), Lebanon, Tennessee

Date of Stay: February, 2017 - $33.00
Overall Rating:      

Once you get off the highway you have 2 1/2 miles of a very narrow frontage road. The front desk help was quick and efficient. The interior roads were narrow and winding, but OK for a big rig. The site was level gravel. Road noise was noticeable but no problem, at least with our windows closed. WiFi was excellent. A good place for an overnight stop.

Rutledge Lake RV Park, Fletcher, North Carolina

Date of Stay: February, 2017 - $45.00
Overall Rating:      

We use to stop here many years ago, and since then ownership has changed. Now there are more permanent sites, and they have added many small houses. But they have done a lot of maintenance, especially adding gravel to all the sites and roadways. Our site was one of the few all concrete ones and level. Utilities were good, but WiFi was almost unusable. This park looks like it is in the country but it is cose to stores and restaurants. We will stay here again.

Compass RV Park (formerly Indian Forest Campground), St Augustine, Florida

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

They greet you in your coach when you arrive and take you to your site. Roads are adequate for a big rig, pad size depends on which class of site you want. Our was site 49, plenty long enough for coach and toad. New owners are friendly and obviously wanting to make this a great park. Laundry was a bit expensive, but one of the cleanest and best laid out we've seen on our full time travels. We camped at Compass RV Park (formerly Indian Forest Campground) in a Motorhome.
