Prairie Knights Resort and Casino, Fort Yates, North Dakota

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $15.00
Overall Rating:      

This was the worst experience in 8 years of RV full timing. We had prepaid reservations in the Marina Campground. This campground is fairly nice for the money. The nightmare part is negotiating the 5 mile mud road to get there in the rain. NEVER, EVER GO TO THE MARINA CAMPGROUND IN THE RAIN, OR IF RAIN IS ANYWHERE IN THE FORECAST. Once you make the turn off of the highway, you are on the unpaved road, and there is no turning back. With a great deal of luck, we made it to the park. We were sliding around on the road and nearly got stuck twice. My wife and I were both shaking when we finally got off the mud road. I spend 45 minutes at the fresh water spigot washing mud off of our tuck and camper. We were planning a two night stay. We will be stuck here until the road dries. Worst ever - no doubt. We camped at Prairie Knights Resort and Casino in a Fifth Wheel.

Chris' Camp, Spearfish, South Dakota

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $43.00
Overall Rating:      

Park does not take plastic. Lady at the desk said it would cost them $300 for the card reader. OK, big park not willing to make a tax deductible expense for the convenience of the customers. Not good. Our campsite was very small. No room to park vehicle. Fortunately there were some unused sites across the road to park in. This is not a good big rig park. Site was all gravel, with one tree on the north side....no shade, and a well worn plastic picnic table. Sites are so small that the picnic tables have to be moved whenever someone is moving in or leaving. $43 per night is very high for what we got. Have had much nicer for $30. WiFi did not work. I asked about this and they said they had a lightning strike a couple of weeks ago and it had not yet been fixed. Customer friendly? On the positive side, the park had a nice swimming pool and the cable TV was better than average. Overall a bad experience. We will not be going back, and we would tell all of our big rig friends to stay away. We camped at Chris' Camp in a Fifth Wheel.

Mountain Shadows RV Park, Draper, Utah

Date of Stay: May, 2016 - $39.00
Overall Rating:      

This is not the best place for a quick stay. Not easily accessed from I-15. The park is very, very tight. Most of the sites are permanently occupied. The streets are packed with parked cars and trucks on both sides. We were barely able to get into our pull-thru on arrival, and were lucky someone across the street left so we had room to pull out when we left. Parking is door-to-door, so you are basically sharing the little space there is between campers. SLC is not blessed with an abundance of good RV park choices. Needed a place to stay, and this worked. Will try something else next time. WiFi was spotty. Verizon worked OK. We camped at Mountain Shadows RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Shady Acres RV Park & Campground, Green River, Utah

Date of Stay: May, 2016 - $34.00
Overall Rating:      

OK park for an overnight, or for a week - price is the weekly rate. If we go back, I may try one of the other options. Just a bit pricey for a well used gravel site. WiFi worked OK during off hours, but not during the busy periods. We camped at Shady Acres RV Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Mount Carmel Motel and RV, Mount Carmel, Utah

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

Very small RV park. Not all of the sites are big rig accessible. The lady who runs the park was very helpful. Would rate higher if they had 50 amp service. Verizon service was marginal, but the park wifi worked well. We chose this place because of the proximity to Zion and Bryce Canyon NP's. Worked well for this. Price reflects the weekly rate. We camped at Mount Carmel Motel and RV in a Fifth Wheel.

B.J.'s RV Park, Terlingua, Texas

Date of Stay: January, 2016 - $28.00
Overall Rating:      

This is by no means an oasis in the desert, but it's a very good place to park your camper while you are visiting the desert. Bud and Irene, the current owners, are super nice and more than willing to help in any way possible. Bud helped us get the rig parked, making sure everything was ok. Later he came over with a map and gave us some great advice about touring Big Bend NP. Later that evening, they had a campfire for all the visitors. The park has been sold, and new owners will be taking over soon. I was told by some of the friendly locals that the new owners are very nice folks, too. It would surprise me if they weren't, as everyone we met in Terlingua was really nice to us. Great place to visit. We camped at B.J.'s RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Big Bend is super to see. Allow a minimum of two days to see the park. More if you can manage it. No fancy restaurants, but the ones we visited were good and the people are all super friendly.

Leisure Landing RV Park, Hot Springs, Arkansas

Date of Stay: April, 2015 - $15.00
Overall Rating:      

Hot Springs is very nice and this park is a great place to stay while enjoying the area. The managers are among the best we have encountered. They are courteous, helpful, and very interested in your having a good stay. All sites are level. The park is not paved with concrete, but the gravel is crushed hard rock, and dust is not a problem. They have lake access, nice barbecue grills, and a fenced dog running area. The clubhouse is really nice with modern exercise equipment available. The laundry was top notch. All hook-ups are modern, and like new. Cable TV worked fine. Wifi worked, but wasn't the best. If the wifi had worked well, this park would be a solid "TEN'. Verizon wireless phone reception was great. We will plan to stay here again if we ever return to Hot Springs. The nightly rate in this review reflects the monthly rate. We camped at Leisure Landing RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Cedar Breaks Park COE, Georgetown, Texas

Date of Stay: March, 2015 - $13.00
Overall Rating:      

Our campsite was ok, but our back-in skill was challenged by the low hanging trees. Once we go situated, we had a really nice spot next to the lake. Restrooms are inadequate to serve a campground of this size. There are only two shower stalls on each side of the restroom. Lighting in the restrooms is poor. Floors were dirty and the toilets/urinals were filthy. One of the worst facilities I have seen is seven years of full-time traveling. We camped at Cedar Breaks Park COE in a Fifth Wheel.

Oakwood RV Resort, Fredericksburg, Texas

Date of Stay: August, 2014 - $18.00
Overall Rating:      

Very nice park in a great location. The $18 rate is what we had on a monthly rate with electricity. Super friendly staff. The very best swimming pool we have ever encountered at an RV resort. Sites are just a bit on the small side, or I would have rated them a 9 or 10. Would definitely come back. We camped at Oakwood RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Ameristar Vicksburg RV Park, Vicksburg, Mississippi

Date of Stay: March, 2014 - $27.00
Overall Rating:      

Good location for visiting Vicksburg and the casino. Shuttle service was good. Campsites are all concrete and barely long enough. Campground is very poorly laid out. Many sites are so far off level that they are virtually unusable. There is a steep hill at the entrance to the park. There is a sharp change from grade to level at the top. We have a large RV, and we actually drug our landing gear at the top when we left. The cable at our site didn't work. We managed to splice in with the neighbor so our TV worked. The neighbor indicated that it had been that way for a while. The previous people had done the same thing. Reported to the office, but they showed little interest. I would look for something else next time. We camped at Ameristar Vicksburg RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Antique Capital RV Park, Gladewater, Texas

Date of Stay: March, 2014 - $15.00

Rate is the PPA one night rate. Actually $14.50. Park is well laid out, with plenty of room for each unit. Each site has a generous, level concrete pad. Cable and WiFi both worked fine. Friendly office people. We would definitely stay again. We camped at Antique Capital RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Cherokee Campground, Helena, Alabama

Date of Stay: February, 2014 - $15.00
Overall Rating:      

The campsites are ok, but the park is a bit on the tight side getting in and out. In addition, it's a trip through the country to get there for an over night. If you are staying only for the night, go somewhere else. There is only a very marginal Verizon signal (no internet) and we were unable to get any TV over the air. The $15 is the PA rate. I would have paid $30 for something closer to the highway with phone and TV. We camped at Cherokee Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Fort Pickens Campground, Pensacola, Florida

Date of Stay: February, 2014 - $13.00
Overall Rating:      

Very nice facility on the gulf. We stayed two weeks, and would stay again. Price reflects the Senior Pass discount. Two factors make this a "7", instead of higher. First, there are no sewer hookups. Secondly, if you have a very large coach or fiver, try to get something in Loop "A". We stayed in loop "C" with a 36' fiver. Got away with it OK because we managed to reserve one of the longer sites. Roads are very narrow, so back-ins can be challenging. Verizon signal was good. We camped at Fort Pickens Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Davis Bayou Campground, Ocean Springs, Mississippi

Date of Stay: January, 2014 - $11.00
Overall Rating:      

Very nice, well maintained facility. If they had sewer connections, this would be an easy "10". Very nice (new) roads to access the park. Make sure you use Park Road southbound from US-90. Our navigator would have taken us into a neighborhood dead end. The price reflects the Senior Pass discount. Plan to get to the park early, as there are no reservations. We camped at Davis Bayou Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Wyalusing State Park, Bagley, Wisconsin

Date of Stay: June, 2013 - $17.00
Overall Rating:      

Really wonderful state park. Two distinctly different campgrounds. The Wisconsin Ridge campground offers spectacular views of the Wisconsin River valley. The Homestead campground offers a quieter, more wooded setting. The whole park is well maintained, and staffed by friendly folks who try their best to make your stay enjoyable. Lots of well maintained trails that wind through a variety of terrain. They have a canoe rental and a well marked canoe trail that will take you through Mississippi River backwaters. A definite family destination. The only downside (keeps the park from being a ten) is the lack of showers in the Homestead campground. We camped at Wyalusing State Park in a Fifth Wheel.
