Wilderness Oaks RV Park (formerly Rockport 35 RV Park Resort), Rockport, Texas

Date of Stay: November, 2018 - $28.00
Overall Rating:

Rate reflects Passport America discount. We were parked in #K, a pull-through the was a little short for our 39' motorhome. Had to park the towd side-ways in back of the RV. Parking is on cement that is very level. There is a page and half of rules in their brochure including letting you know in no uncertain terms that they can refuse service to anyone and that there are no refunds for unused days for any reason. Good Verizon cell service with 3 bars of 4g. Excellent view to the southern sky for using our onboard DTV satellite dish. Very noisy from road and airplanes. We camped at Wilderness Oaks RV Park (formerly Rockport 35 RV Park Resort) in a Motorhome.

Angels in Goliad RV Park, Goliad, Texas

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

Rate reflects Passport America discount. The turn onto Michael St. is very small and had a very large chuck hole in the center but we were able to maneuver without incident. Checked in with the owner, a very friendly gentleman, and he told us to choose any site we wanted. We chose #11, a long pull-though with parking on pea gravel that was fairly level. Angels is a work in progress for the young owners who have a lot of plans in the works, including changing the material for the parking pads. There are several full-time/long term residents but the maintain their sites very well. The WiFi is excellent (the best we have had in a long time) as is the view to the south for strong DTV satellite reception. There are no bathrooms or showers at this time but they are planning to build them in the near future. Very good 50 amp electrical service with adequate water pressure. We will stay here again. We camped at Angels in Goliad RV Park in a Motorhome.

Colorado Landing, La Grange, Texas

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

Rate reflects Passport America discount and paying with cash. The park charges a $5 fee if you use a credit card. We were assigned space #63, a very large back in on gravel. Very good 50 amp electric service and great water pressure. The park is very well maintained. We were able to get a strong DTV satellite signal and good Verizon cell service at 3 bars of 4g. The WIfI is excellent but we were parked right next to the office. A very nice touch is that they have free ice for guests. One complaint is that there was a dog that barked a lot from being left alone in a travel trailer a few sites down from us. My wife went to the office to complain and was told that they would call the owner to come back and quiet the dog down. The lady in the office also said that she has been getting other complaints. This morning the barking started at 7 AM so apparently the problem has not been resolved. The folks that own the dog should have been told to leave the park. We would stay here again. We camped at Colorado Landing in a Motorhome.

If you are in town when it is open make a visit to the Quilt Museum. Excellent! The Sealand Seafood and Steak restaurant has good food. Also, the UPS store is great if you need to fax something or need a notary service.

I-35 RV Park, Elm Mott, Texas

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

Rate reflects charge for 50 amp service and taxes. Arrived early in the day with a reservation which we made online. They do not accept a reservation requests on the phone because the owner does not want the employees to take credit card information by phone. First time I have ever heard that one. So, it you don't have internet access you can't make a reservation? The web site says that the park is quiet. If you count loud interstate traffic and train horns as quiet, I guess it is. Large pull-throughs on gravel with good 50 amp power and adequate water pressure. No picnic table. The WiFi is fast most of the time but slows down in the mid mornings and early evenings. Good Verizon 4g service and good DTV satellite signal. Several times during the day we had folks cutting through our site on the way to the bathrooms and showers. Very rude. We had originally made reservations at one of the COE parks outside of Waco but it flooded so we wound up here. Probably would not stay here again due to the high price and outside noise. We camped at I-35 RV Park in a Motorhome.

Rocker D RV Ranch, Mineral Wells, Texas

Date of Stay: October, 2018 - $32.00
Overall Rating:

Rate reflects a $2 charge to use a credit card. Pulled in with no reservations but we did call ahead to make sure there was spaces available. No one in the office but someone told us to just pick as spot and the manager would catch up with us later. Went over to pay and mentioned the sign at the entrance that they offer military discount but the lady said they offer the discount to everyone. We found space 8 empty so pulled in there. There has been a lot of rain here in this area of Texas so I can understand the lack of yard care but we noticed a lot of trash on the ground around the dumpsters. Good solid 50 amp electric and great water pressure. Our Verizon cell signal was good at 3 bars of 4g service and we had a clear shot to use our onboard satellite dish. This park is about 80% long term residents. Most keep their sites clean but there are others that don't even try. We would stay again. We camped at Rocker D RV Ranch in a Motorhome.

Oasis RV Resort, Amarillo, Texas

Date of Stay: October, 2018 - $36.00
Overall Rating:

Arrived in the early afternoon with a reservation and was assigned to #50, a large pull-through with an asphalt drive and a very level cement pad. Very close to the facilities. We very visiting friends in the area and they asked us to spend the night at their house so, anticipating some nasty weather forecasted to come through that night we pulled the slides in and secured the rig. Well, nasty weather was what this area had to say the least. A lot of rain, high winds and quarter size hail. The next morning I drove out to the park early to check on the rig and fortunately, all was well. The weather was forecasted to be bad later in the day so I went to the office to inquire about staying an extra day so the lady in the office blocked an extra day just in case. Several other folks we doing the same thing and she did everything she could to help people, even to the point of not taking any reservations until all the folks that were there already were taken care of. Amazing service! One thing that is a little problem is there are several large pot holes in the roads so be careful drive in the park. Good Verizon LTE service at 3-bars and 95% are satellite TV friendly. We will return. We camped at Oasis RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Elks Lodge #2390 (Members Only), Dalhart, Texas

Date of Stay: October, 2018 - $10.00
Overall Rating:

Rate reflects a donation as they don't have a set or recommended amount. When we called ahead to just take a spot. Parking is on gravel with no shade of any kind but sites are relatively level. Electrical is 30 amp with good water pressure. No sewer. Lodge opened at 4PM where we paid the bartender. Very friendly folks. One negative that we find significant is that they allow smoking in the lodge and there are no exhaust fans. Because of that issue we didn't stay very long. We would return. We camped at Elks Lodge #2390 (Members Only) in a Motorhome.

Sundance High Plains RV Park, Lamar, Colorado

Date of Stay: October, 2018 - $33.00
Overall Rating:

Rate reflects military discount. After a quick and easy check-in we pulled into site #21. The parking is very easy and we were able to leave our towed hooked up. Electric service was good but the water spigot was close to the ground and right next to a large rock. I'm glad we had a splitter so I didn't have to hook directly to the faucet. Very friendly folks in the office who I think are the owners. Excellent WiFi and our Verizon was at 2-bars of 4g. No problem getting a DTV signal with our onboard dish. Their laundry has three washers/dryers and a book exchange. We thought have a different prices on the machines was a bit odd. We would stay here again. We camped at Sundance High Plains RV Park in a Motorhome.

Colorado Springs Elks Lodge #309 (Members Only), Colorado Springs, Colorado

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

Arrived in the early afternoon and took one of the last two sites available. Got backed in and discovered we had a flat. There is a Goodyear Commercial Tire Center very close so got a new tire installed. Good water pressure and 30 amp power. You are very, very close to your neighbor's here so make sure you are in the confines of the white lines. One of our neighbor's had their window shades deployed and they were actually in our site so we had to move over a foot or so. We will be back. We camped at Colorado Springs Elks Lodge #309 (Members Only) in a Motorhome.

Terry Bison Ranch Resort, Cheyenne, Wyoming

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $24.00
Overall Rating:

Rate reflects Passport America discount plus tax. Arrived in the early afternoon and checked in which was very easy. Watch for the potholes at the entrance. They provided a brochure with a restaurant menu and a 10% discount coupon. Our site #81 was very tight but adequate for us for one night. All sites are tight and very close to your neighbors. There are a lot of full-time residents here and some of them have a junk/tools/ etc. around their rig. Most of the sites also need weed whacking and/or mowing. The whole park needs some attention. Good solid 50 amp power and fairly good water pressure. Verizon cell service was 4 bars of 4g LTE and we were able to get a good DirecTv satellite signal with our on-board antenna. We would not have stayed here if they didn't take Passport America. We camped at Terry Bison Ranch Resort in a Motorhome.

Fort Caspar Campground, Casper, Wyoming

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $39.00
Overall Rating:

Price includes taxes and a Good Sam discount. Our third time to Fort Casper but only because it is close to family members. Solid 50 amp electric and good water pressure. A lot of full-time residents in fact, I think the majority of the park are folks here long term. Most people obey the 5 MPH speed limit but there are those who do not and they kick up a fair amount of dust. Very close side-by-side parking with nothing between sites. WiFi is free but the reception is off and on depending on the time of day. Good Verizon LTE service and you wouldn't have a problem getting a satellite signal here. All that being said, I think we will check out another park in the area, especially given the price they are charging for basic RV parking. We camped at Fort Caspar Campground in a Motorhome.

Western Hills Campground, Rawlins, Wyoming

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $27.00
Overall Rating:

Rate reflects military discount. Side-by-side parking on hard packed gravel. No shade what so ever. Good water pressure with solid 50 amp electric. Cable TV but is very poor picture quality. Internet was very good and we had good 4g Verizon cell service. The park sits on top of a hill so, if it's windy (as it was when were were there), you will be rocked a little. If it's blowing, next time we will stay down the hill at the other park. We would stay here again. We camped at Western Hills Campground in a Motorhome.

Sweetwater Events Complex - RV Park (formerly Sweetwater Fairgrounds), Rock Springs, Wyoming

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

Price reflects military discount. Easy check in with the caretaker. We were told what sections still had water turned on and just go find a site. All sites have a fence around them and parking to be out of the road can be a challenge. In fact, we were backed in at an angle and still we sticking out in the road a tad. Good water pressure and 50 amp power. Some sites have both 30 and 50 amp, some site only 30, some sites have only 50 and others have both. The site we selected had only 50 amp. Not a bad place and the price is right. We camped at Sweetwater Events Complex - RV Park (formerly Sweetwater Fairgrounds) in a Motorhome.

Buffalo Meadows RV Park (Fort Hall Casino Campground), Fort Hall, Idaho

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $1.00
Overall Rating:

The wife was able to trade a free hotel room for an RV site so parking was free. The RV parking for checking in is to the west of the main casino entrance. They want you to check in before pulling into the RV park. The roads in the park are very tight as are the sites, hence my low rating. Also, they need to do some tree trimming. Our site, 14A, has a tree at the front of the parking pad that might rub your RV when you exit. But you can't beat the price in our case. Might pass this place up unless we have another freebie.

Overall Rating:

Rate reflects Passport America discount. Very friendly staff and checking in was a breeze. Watch for the small sign at the entrance to the park from the highway. Very small and hard to see. They charged us $3 to use a credit card which I am seeing more and more these days. Sites are huge with very good power and water pressure. Recommend you use a water pressure regulator.
