Dixon May Fair Campground, Dixon, California

Date of Stay: April, 2018 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

Things have not changed much since our last visit. Still very low water pressure and barky dogs during the dog show. We were in site #16 and were able to get a DTV satellite signal but that might be a problem when the trees have all their leaves. Good Verizon 4g service. Super friendly and helpful folks in the office. We camped at Dixon May Fair Campground in a Motorhome.

Calistoga RV and Campground, Calistoga, California

Date of Stay: March, 2018 - $19.00
Overall Rating:

Price reflects our Passport America membership. Since we were only going to be here four days we elected to take a Standard site, water and 30 amp electric when we made our reservation. They say they have WiFi but although we were able to connect you couldn't get anywhere and could not even check email from site 32. Very poor water pressure. Fair Verizon 4g cell service but during the daytime everything slowed down. We were able to use our onboard DTV satellite dish with no obstructions. Didn't look like anyone had done any mowing or trimming in the park lately. We didn't use the facilities but when I stuck my head in the men's room it was clean though nothing fancy. NOTE: The Berry Street Bridge is closed through July. So if you are coming up Hwy 128 you will have to turn right on Lincoln St., through downtown and then left on Fair Way. There is construction being done on Lincoln as well and it is really tight getting trough there. I will be back up here next week and will take the Silverado Trial though Napa.

If you have a big rig, I recommend you come up the Silverado Trail out of Napa until the construction is completed in July. We camped at Calistoga RV and Campground in a Motorhome.

Elks Lodge #439 (Members Only), Fresno, California

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

We arrived with a reservation for a six night stay. Reservations can be made a month or so in advance. Checkin is very easy with cash or check, no credit cards. There are ten sites with 30 amp electric and water service. Two of the sites are used by the camp host in site 4 and a small Class-C in space 1 that has been there for a very long time. Very, very low water pressure. Hookups for site 5 were on the curb side of our rig so make sure you have enough hoses to reach the water connection. There is another parking site next to the lodge building that has electric service and I did see another rig dry camping near the entrance. Most of the sites will take a big rigs but not all. The camp host will ask the size of your RV when you call for a reservation. A lot of traffic noise in the area. The Lodge's WiFi is virtually worthless. Could connect sometimes but getting emails and simple surfing the web was painful. Used our jet pack 98% of the time. Verizon cell service was strong and we were able to get a DTV satellite signal. If you want to use the exercise room and showers make sure you get a key card from the camp host. $10 deposit. We camped at Elks Lodge #439 (Members Only) in a Motorhome.

Preferred RV Resort, Pahrump, Nevada

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

Price reflects Passport America discount. Arrived with a reservation made a couple of months ago. Price went up $3.50 during that time. We were put in site 318; very tight, staggered parking. Utility connections are at the very back of your rig so make sure you have the hoses you will need. Shared water connections but water pressure is still good. You will need to seal your sewer connection. Satellite signal good from this site. The free internet is provided by Tengo Internet and is often very, very slow especially in the mornings and early evenings. There were times that we could't connect at all. Verizon cell signal was 3 bars of 4g. Plenty of activities including woodworking, stained glass and more. Important: Stop on the side of the road when coming in and walk up to the registration booth. We failed to read the signs but all worked out. Next time here we'll stay at the Elks Lodge for $10 a night with electric and water. We camped at Preferred RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Just a couple additions to the other reviews. WiFi worked good in site #29. The lodge does not take credit or debit cards so take cash or write a check. So of the trees could us some trimming. Good Verizon 4g service and if you have an on-board satellite dish park on the west end. We camped at Elks Lodge #1625 (Members Only) in a Motorhome.

Rancho Sonora Inn & RV Park, Florence, Arizona

Date of Stay: January, 2018 - $18.00
Overall Rating:

The rate is based on monthly charge plus electric. We stayed here for two months, November through December and generally enjoyed the area. The roads as well as the parking spaces are gravel which causes some dust when folks don't obey the speed limit. Each site has a concrete pad with a picnic table. We paid $400 a month and $.17kWh for power which we thought was a tad high. The park's workampers do an amazing job keeping everything clean and tidy. Very quiet park with minimum lighting so one can enjoy the stars at night. The park's WiFi was fair the first three weeks of November and then it really started slowing down as more folks arrived. That is understandable considering the number of folks here that stream TV and video. One gentleman (there were several more) was heard saying that he watches all of his TV and downloads movies using the park's WiFi. That slows everyone down. He also said that he pays for the WiFi (in his space rent) so he is going to use it. Hmmm....OK. We were able to get a DTV satellite from site 52 and the Verizon 4G signal was very strong on our phones and the MiFi. One of the things we found to be troubling is the cost of electrical service. For the month of November we paid $130 but since it was hot most days, we ran the air conditioner a lot. But then for December, we paid the same $130 and we didn't run the AC nearly as much. On top of that, we were gone for a week. No stores in the immediate area so you must go to Florence or Coolidge for shopping. Coolidge has a Wally Mart and a Safeway. We camped at Rancho Sonora Inn & RV Park in a Motorhome.

Fort Willcox RV Park, Willcox, Arizona

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $24.00
Overall Rating:

Price reflects Passport America discount. Arrived in the earl afternoon with a reservation. No one was in the office but the note on the door said where we should park. Spacious gravel parking that is fairly level. Park manager came to our door to tell us we could go over to the office and pay. Charged us $5 extra for 50 amp service. Very, very poor water pressure. Wife went to checkout the bathroom to take a shower there but they charge .50 for 6 minutes. Fairly good WiFi and open sky to the south for our DTV satellite antenna. Some road and train noise. Due to the extra charges and poor water pressure we won't be returning. We camped at Fort Willcox RV Park in a Motorhome.

A Deming Roadrunner Rv Park, Deming, New Mexico

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $14.00
Overall Rating:

Price reflects our Passport America discount. This park is pretty much a large gravel parking area with some hookups. There are some sites that have trees but it seems these are all taken by long-term residents of which there are several. Some of them take care of their sites and some are very trashy. Check in was easy and finding site 66 was no problem. When I tried to hookup our water connection the faucet was leaking pretty bad so we called the office and asked what we should do. The gal said she knew about the leak and to go ahead and hookup anyway. OK. Seams a waste of water to me. Solid 50 amp electric and fair water pressure. The WiFi is so so. Sometimes it goes like a rocket and then the speed will slow down to a crawl. Early morning and late evening seems to be the best. No problem getting a DTV satellite signal in our site. Laundry room was adequate. We would stay here again. We camped at A Deming Roadrunner Rv Park in a Motorhome.

The Adobe Deli steakhouse is amazing. Nine miles east of town in the middle of nowhere but well worth the drive. We're told that on Thr, Fri and Sat evenings reservations are a must. Check them out here: http://www.adobedeli.com/

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $18.00
Overall Rating:

Called ahead and was told by the RV park host that there was one full-hook site available. When we arrived site #14 was empty so we took that. Very tight space with a 90-degree back-in. Ok for a motorhome but a large 5th wheel may have issues. Good 30 amp electric with very high water pressure. Make sure you use a restrictor. We went to the bar to pay for our site. Very friendly lodge. Dinner was a huge smothered burrito which was delicious. We will be back. We camped at Elks Lodge #2227 (Members Only) in a Motorhome.

Red Desert Rose Campground (formerly RV World Campground), Rawlins, Wyoming

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $29.00
Overall Rating:

Price reflects taxes and our military discount. Pulled in here to wait out a snow storm and were assigned a pull-through site. Sites are very close together but adequate for our one night stay. Very easy check in and navigating to our site. 3-bars Verizon cell and great DTV signals. WiFi was good until the park started filling up and then it slowed down to a crawl. Highway and train noise that some might find intrusive. High water pressure so make sure to use a restrictor. We camped at Red Desert Rose Campground (formerly RV World Campground) in a Motorhome.

Very easy check in. We were told to just find a spot and do whatever you have to do to park. Sites are very shallow so we back at an angle and took up two sites. Good power and water pressure. Site was not very level and I highly recommend using pads under your leveling jacks. Good Verizon cell and DTV signals.
