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/

Elks Lodge #2227 (Members Only), Westminster, Colorado

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.

Sweetwater Fairgrounds, Rock Springs, Wyoming

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

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. We camped at Sweetwater Fairgrounds in a Motorhome.

Price reflects Good Sam discount and taxes. Easy in and out from I-90. A lot of road noise from the interstate and some dust from the truck stop if the wind is blowing. WiFi is available and we had a good signal but we couldn't connect. Don't know what the problem is. Fuel and food close to park. We camped at Indian Creek Campground in a Motorhome.

Casey's Riverside RV Park, Westfir, Oregon

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $43.00

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.

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.

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.

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.
