Casey's Riverside RV Park, Westfir, Oregon

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $43.00
Overall Rating:      

Nice park in a beautiful location. We think the park is over priced for what you get and for the area. We had a pull-through and it was a tad unlevel on the nose. Train noise but did not bother us. We would stay here again. We camped at Casey's Riverside RV Park in a Motorhome.

Dixon May Fair Campground, Dixon, California

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

Very reasonable rate for this area of N. California. Good power but water pressure is low. Very good Verizon 4g signal and a getting satellite is not a problem from most sites. Big rig parking is not a problem except in the 3 or 4 neatest the gate. Some train noise. During dog shows there are a lot of barky dogs which was expected. We will return. We camped at Dixon May Fair Campground in a Motorhome.

Elks Lodge #1608, Needles, California

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

We stayed at just one night and enjoyed our stay. We called ahead to make sure there were sites available. When we pulled in there were four available. The next morning all of them were full. Very good power and water pressure. Three bars of 4g Verizon service and good shot to the southern sky for your satellite. Spent some time in the lounge and got to know some of the local folks. We will make this a regular stop when traveling through S. CA. We camped at Elks Lodge #1608 in a Motorhome.

Tradewinds RV Park, Golden Valley, Arizona

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

Rate reflects passport America rate. We were in the area to visit friends and this was the closest park to their home. Our site was a pull-thru, full hookup site. Parking is on hard-packed gravel which was fairly level. Good Verizon signal and getting a satellite is no problem here. Good electrical and water pressure. We camped at Tradewinds RV Park in a Motorhome.

Rate of $14 is on our Passport America discount. Easy check in and getting into the site. This park is just a huge field with the electrical hook ups on the a telephone pole which worked great. Good water pressure. Great place for overnight. We camped at Parkview Mobile Home & RV Park in a Motorhome.

Hidden Valley RV Park, Von Ormy, Texas

Date of Stay: March, 2017 - $16.00
Overall Rating:      

Rate is based on monthly at $470 including electric. We have stayed at Hidden Valley several times with this visit being for two months. Many improvements have been made since our last visit including the addition of several new very spacious sites and a new office/bathroom/laundry building. Office hours are 1 to 5 PM daily and no arrivals are allowed after dark. The manager's are fantastic and go the extra mile to ensure you have a comfortable stay. Need a repair on your RV? They know who to call. Want to take a tour of San Antonio or need tickets to the attractions. Just ask and they will make it happen. There are actually two sections of the park, the "top" and "bottom" down near the creek. Several of the folks here are long-term residents but the manager's make sure the sites don't get cluttered or trashy. There is no cable TV provided but there are a ton of over the air channels. Satellite reception is good in most of the sites. The park's WiFi is OK for simple surfing and emails and no streaming is allowed. We found the speed fair except in the afternoon and evening. We will be back. We camped at Hidden Valley RV Park in a Motorhome.

Lockhart State Park, Lockhart, Texas

Date of Stay: October, 2016 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

Arrived on a Saturday with a reservation and told to go to the campground, find a site and return before 6 PM to complete the registration. Very nice campsites with plenty of room. Good 50 amp electric and water pressure however, at times the pressure went down to nothing for a short time. Happened when my wife was taking her shower and that ain't good. Verizon cell service is pretty much non existent most of the time. Our Jetpack got 1 bar of 4g but on our Sleek the signal increased to 3 bars. There is no WiFi out here.We didn't use the facilities but when I looked there were clean but a little dated. In site 10 we were able to get a DTV signal with no problem. The town of Lockhart is all about barbecue. We went to Keuz Market and the brisket was excellent but we found the port ribs to be a little dry. We didn't like their potato salad at all. Next time we'll go to Black's. We camped at Lockhart State Park in a Motorhome.

Jim Hogg Park COE, Georgetown, Texas

Date of Stay: October, 2016 - $10.00
Overall Rating:      

Very large sites with good 50 amp electrical. Water pressure is very strong so use a reducer. 2 bars of 4g Verizon service and from our site we had no problem getting a DTV signal. Very quiet during the week but starting Friday night, not so much since this is a family getaway park. We will return. We camped at Jim Hogg Park COE in a Motorhome.

Triple T RV Resort, Kerrville, Texas

Date of Stay: October, 2016 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

Called ahead due to arriving on a Sunday. We we're given the gate combination and told to call back upon arrival. Outstanding customer service. Site was fairly level with good 50 amp electric and water pressure. Goat heads are everywhere so if you are walking a pet watch out. A little way out of town but worth the drive. A little road noise but nothing really bad. Good 2-bars of 4g Verizon service and no problem getting a DTV signal. Thanks y'all for another good stay. We'll be back.

The pros: Good power and water pressure, quiet and at $14 a night with our Passport America discount the place is okay for one night. The cons: Roads are in desperate need or repair. Drive very slow. The WiFi is pretty much unusable. You get what you pay for. We camped at Parkview Mobile Home & RV Park in a Motorhome.

Arrived with a reservation. We were assigned to site 34 but found that a tree was preventing us to extend one of our slides. Moved to site 45, a very large one. No problem getting a satellite signal and we got 2-bars of 4g Verizon cell service. They do have WiFi however it is very slow and almost not usable for much more than getting email. We would stay here again. We camped at LoW-Hi RV Ranch in a Motorhome.

Val Vista Village (55+ park), Mesa, Arizona

Date of Stay: October, 2016 - $26.00
Overall Rating:      

When we arrived on a Sunday the gate attendant told us we would have to wait for about 40 minutes before he could get someone to escort us to our site. It actually only took only 15 minutes to get someone to us. After backing into our very tight site it took a while to get leveled since the site was slopped to the front and to the left side. We were told we had to park our towd on the patio but if we had slides on that side we could not have parked there. This is a resort with all the amenities your would expect in a park in the Mesa area and our Passport America membership rate made this park affordable. Strong Verizon 4g service and line of site to the south for a satellite signal is good in all the sites we saw. The park's WiFi is free but very, very slow and we couldn't connect at most times of the day. We would stay again. We camped at Val Vista Village (55+ park) in a Motorhome.

Travis AFB FamCamp (Military FamCamp), Travis AFB, California

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

1st stay: Brochure, phone message and sign on the door all say the office is open from 0830-1200 then from 1300-1530. My wife went to the office where an Open sign displayed in the window, knocked on the door but the guy in the office would not answer. She then called the office number and he finally acknowledged her. When we made reservations a few months back I asked for a parking site where we could get satellite reception. Amy assigned us to site #3 for that purpose. During check-in we were told we had been moved to site #61 which we knew has a tree blocking to view to the south. At that time we were told there was no other sites available so we proceeded to our site, backed in and with some maneuvering, got the TV working. When my wife walked back over to the office she was told we could move to another site if we wanted. What? So, if you are assigned to a site or make a request for a specific site when you make a reservation, you may or may not get that one when you arrive. My recommendation would not even assign a site when you make a reservation, just wait until your arrival. During check-in you are required to not only sign the "rules" sheet but you must now initial all 21 rules individually and then sign. I don't think we got the memo that the old manager had returned to Travis. There is no longer any internet available in the park and if you want cable TV you are required to go into Fairfield to get a cable box. They are no longer watering most of the "dogs" parking sites and it looks terrible in that area.

2nd Stay: Same problem with being moved to another site. Don't get me wrong, I don't mind being moved but at least take my preferences into account. The Verizon cell signal is weak at Travis, but with a booster we are able to get 2 bars of 4g service. We camped at Travis AFB FamCamp (Military FamCamp) in a Motorhome.

Calistoga RV and Campground, Calistoga, California

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

We have stayed here several times. Yes, it is basically a gravel parking lot and the full hookup sites are very close together but hey, this is the Napa Valley. We get the Passport America rate of $25 for 4 nights, Sunday thru Thursday making this park a great deal in this area. If we had to pay the full price I wouldn't rate the value as high. They are working on the sprinkler system water lines while we have been here so some of the full hookup sites are closed for use. The camp hosts are only on duty Thursday thru Sunday these days so if you owe money you must go to the fairgrounds office to take care of that. The water pressure here is very low so my wife used the parks bathroom to take her showers. We were assigned to site #4 and were able to get a DTV satellite signal this time. However, it won't be very long that the growing trees will prevent that in this site. Very good Verizon 4g service. The parks WiFi is good but slows down in the evenings. I suspect there is some streaming going on even though the parks management asks folks to not do that. We will return as we have family in the area. We camped at Calistoga RV and Campground in a Motorhome.

Valley of the Rogue State Park, Gold Hill, Oregon

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $8.00
Overall Rating:      

Rate reflects the OPRD disabled veterans pass reservation fee. Noisy since the park is located right next to I-5. We made a reservation for F-35 but on arrival the computer had us in F-36 but that worked even better. Strong Verizon 4g and we were able to get a DTV satellite signal using or onboard antenna. Most sites are iffy for the latter. We noticed a lot of litter in the park and our fire pit had not been cleaned at all. Same with our friends sites and on even had garbage in the pit. As ORPD volunteer's we find that perplexing. The grass in most of F-loop is very dry. We camped at Valley of the Rogue State Park in a Motorhome.
