Whisper Mountain Campground & RV Park, Roanoke, West Virginia

Date of Stay: April, 2017 - $45.00
Overall Rating:      

We pulled in at the end of a rainstorm - sun just coming out - fresh-cut grass - trees-in-bloom-smells...glad we sucked it up and made the impromptu commitment to do the 5 miles of nowhere-to-turn-around-anyway hardball road. The previous reviews were spot-on, however we saw the road as a welcome respite, after the 50+ miles of uphill and hard rain. Four any-size pull-throughs, but would avoid the one with no gravel yet (we were the only ones in the place on a Thursday nite); full hookups all four. There are 42 numbered sites - all grass except 1-3; gravel roads in good repair, a throw-'em-back fishing pond, two cabins, and a playground for smaller kids (pool not on line at this date). Wife and I enjoyed a nice walk, and the wife got her "pet-the-animal fix" with the two Shetland ponies. Most of the sites have fire rings, tables, electric, water; some are tents-only. We really enjoyed this VERY quiet place; would be a good campground to take the kids on a week / weekend campout - no wifi, and plenty to do. We camped at Whisper Mountain Campground & RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

If during school year, wait until after 07:15 to depart - so you don't have to tangle with school buses on the twisty, narrow road. There is NO Walmart just down the street, so bring what you need.

Mountain Breeze RV Park, Laceys Spring, Alabama

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

We stayed here for a week, while surveying the Huntsville area for retirement location. We called ahead and the manager told us that if he wasn't there (having hand surgery that day), to just pick a spot and we'd settle later. It's easy to find: midway between Lacey's Springs and Morgan City, and on the west side of US-231. Mostly long-term singles/couples in this park: most working at Redstone Arsenal, but everything is neat and well-kept, and it's quiet (and no dogs running loose).

It's an older park, but water/sewer/electric are all in good repair, and there is a small building with washer/dryer (and shower still in-work). (Figuring you ought to be fully self-contained at this park.) Our site was level, and plenty long for our 35-footer and TOAD. It's not a "destination," nor would we call it "kid-friendly," but it sure is a nice place to hang your hat while visiting the area, or passing through. We camped at Mountain Breeze RV Park in a Motorhome.

Downtown H-Ville is about a 30-minute drive. WalMart is 15-minutes south to Arab, or north to H-Ville. Space-and-Rocket Center is about 45-minutes. (Their campground was full: same price). Guntersville is about 20-minutes SE, and "Unclaimed Baggage" store, in Scotsboro is about 45-minutes.

Really enjoy this more laid-back, yet high-tech and full-featured area.

Canyon Creek Campground, Hixon, British Columbia

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

Great park. Great office staff. We're sitting here IN our camper at 18:00, because someone decided they NEEDED to begin cutting the grass at 17:30 - with tractor-mower. He's going half the speed he could be, is MOST noisy - and seems oblivious to the fact that he was blowing grass/dirt/dust AT campers. NO reason this fellow couldn't be cutting grass in mid-afternoon, when the park is half/or-better empty. It's nice outside - cool, breezy; but we can't be out there, since he's making circles right in front of our camper - and has been. Other than that - it seems like a nice place - level gravel spaces - WIDE - trees - good water/power, and sewer is easy to reach. Too bad "his" schedule trumps the customer's. If we're back this way we'd stay here again - if the mower-guy is not retained for next season. We camped at Canyon Creek Campground in a Motorhome.

Joint Base Elmendorf/Richardson Famcamp, Anchorage, Alaska

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

Convenient to BX/Commissary - yes; gate too. Water good. Power clean. No sewer - dump average, but is easy to access. Laundry equipment - several broken, and had been so for ~3 months (volunteer host had reported, but management not very proactive). The "paid" host shouldn't have any contact with people; most disrespectful (don't think she was even 30). Regards cleanliness, we've seen better - and worse. Park is a few dollars cheaper than commercial places, but it's really no bargain for military affiliates (like the on-base gasoline - it's cheaper at Sam's Club, just outside the gate). Will likely not stay here again - Black Spruce, at Ft Rich - just a couple miles away, is better deal (and layout). We camped at Joint Base Elmendorf/Richardson Famcamp in a Motorhome.

Check out Black Spruce campground, at Ft Rich, before you commit to Elmendorf - it's worth the short drive, and most of the sites are full hookups. Sams Club right out the gate (Lowes too) - Wal Mart on DeBarr - all close by.

Bayside RV Park, Valdez, Alaska

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $45.00
Overall Rating:      

Clean-clean-clean. Level site - needed only lower the jacks. 20/30/50A. Water was best seen after 5 weeks on the road. Sewer at each site. Cable TV at each site. WiFi good signal - and actually had usable up-link bandwidth. Close to town - walking distance to grocery and restaurants. "Licensed" to feed eagles - what a show! These folks have built a VERY nice facility over the past few years (after purchasing a less-than-reputable business). Stop in and see them. We camped at Bayside RV Park in a Motorhome.

Three museums in town - all worth the look. Eagle-feeding at this RV park likely soon over for season (ending mid-June) due to salmon beginning to run. Watched 18 adults and 7 juveniles one evening.

Valdez Glacier Campground (Now open to the public), Valdez, Alaska

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

Combined-use military and public - $5 discount for military. This is an "Iron-Ranger" facility, although there is a camp-host on-site. Near as we could tell, all were back-in sites - plenty roomy, and only a limited number had electric (20/30/50); no water, no sewer. Sites were fairly level and well-drained. Facilities were neat and clean, including dump station; fresh-water was a hose on a reel behind the showers. Also "under-the-pattern" for Valdez airport - quite a bit of rotary traffic, but is no issue. All things considered - good value. Fire-rings, tables. We camped at Valdez Glacier Campground (Now open to the public) in a Motorhome.

Kenny Lake Mercantile & RV Park, Copper Center, Alaska

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $38.00
Overall Rating:      

Previous reviews apply. Rate higher than previously reported. "Restaurant" not in operation - staffing; no issue with us. Gasoline is competitive with Valdez - a bit more than Glennallen. Electric-only for RV's (we used 30A - no issues) - no pull-throughs, but the back-ins are pretty much any length. Water-fill is included in price, as is dump; both points handy to use. Store has a variety of necessities - understand that this place is near the end of the supply-chain, and prices reflect same. We did not use showers/washers/dryers. Fire/picnic/pavilion available, but not at each site. Felt comfortable leaving RV at this location for LONG day-trip to McCarthy/Kennecott - was a bit uncomfortable with the optional sites at Chitina - on the east side of the Copper River Bridge. The added 20 miles was not problematic. Be advised that Class C/A and tows will need to slow significantly before Chitina - road conditions. Staff at this park is typical of most places in YT and AK - friendly, and appreciative of your business. We camped at Kenny Lake Mercantile & RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

McCarthy/Kennecott is ~80 miles east - via Chitina. Road between Kenny Lake and Chitina is great for about ten miles - remaining 10 miles are easily negotiable if you are patient, have no one following you. 60 miles to McCarthy are negotiable with trailer or motor-home - anticipate 2.5-3 hours, or - if in truck/car - 1.5-2 hours.

Kenny Lake Mercantile RV seems to be "safe-bet" for leaving RV unattended.

Sleepy Hollow RV Park, Wall, South Dakota

Date of Stay: August, 2014 - $29.00
Overall Rating:      

Per previous review, regarding the mix of 50/30 amp, sewer or not, cable or not, it gives one a pay-for-what-you-want option. Showers very clean and up to date, although they're not much bigger than the one in your camper. Water and electric all good (except it's SOFT water), and gravel / grass / table sites are level. Nice areas for tents - all grass. About a 100'x100' fenced grass dog area with fire-plug and a piece of concrete culvert for diversions. Folks in the office were nice and helpful. Five minute walk to Wall Drug / Main Street, and another five to the Wall Grocery. Pretty nice place overall, and this park is on our short-list of in-range and affordable places for the 2015 Sturgis Rally (plenty of bikers here now - and it's nice and quiet). We camped at Sleepy Hollow RV Park in a Motorhome.

7th Ranch RV Camp, Garryowen, Montana

Date of Stay: July, 2014 - $35.00
Overall Rating:      

Confirming previous comments - yes, it's hot - until the sunset, and the quarter-mile of gravel road is dusty, but the park itself is not. Hillside sites are surprisingly level, and hookups are all in top shape. Also confirming showers as outstanding. Wi-Fi worked fine for us. Don't let the three miles down the frontage road discourage you - it's just five minutes from the exit on I-90, and six miles south of the Little Bighorn Battlefield Memorial. This is a really nice park for an overnight and longer stays, and the management is very friendly - we would definitely stay again. We camped at 7th Ranch RV Camp in a Motorhome.

Nice gravel roads and sites - level. Water/electric/sewer all good. Planted trees should have shade in 10-15 years. Grass watered and green. Nice folks in office. Table provided.

Green River Campground, Dinosaur National Monument - NPS, Jensen, Utah

Date of Stay: July, 2014 - $12.00
Overall Rating:      

Gave this place a "9" due to location - ON the Green River at Dinosaur National Monument. Electric/water/sewer are not available; potable water was available at the rest-room sites via your own container. Sites were fairly private - roughly 1/3 available for "reservation." Our site was 1/4-bubble level - paved roads/sites. Had stayed here in 2003 - improvements made in the interim. Just a really nice, quiet, and unspoiled natural area. We WILL stay here again!!!

Rangely Camper Park, Rangely, Colorado

Date of Stay: June, 2014 - $20.00

OK folks, it's not a resort, and it's not an RV park - it's a good-for-one-night-better-than-WalMart, city-owned place. Nice little park next to White River. Campground hosts were really nice - all slots paved, albeit really short. Only half a dozen with electric - water was via LONG hose (some provided). We had no problems with facilities or area. We camped at Rangely Camper Park in a Motorhome.

Goldfield RV Park, Colorado Springs, Colorado

Date of Stay: June, 2014 - $37.00
Overall Rating:      

Fellow at the desk was friendly and helpful. Sites really tight, but I looked at it as a "challenge" to get in/out. Water/electric/sewer hookups all-good, site we had was only a bubble-off - others (mostly seasonal/long-term) not so much. All gravel - not dusty. Facilities well-maintained and seemingly clean. Right on highway, so is noisy if your windows are open - don't count on using your awning/ground-cover/lounge chairs. Decent park for an overnite, or a few days if you're visiting Manitou Springs / Pikes-Peak / Garden of Gods / etc. - if you don't have expectations other than a level spot and hookups. Drive-by of another campground just up the road convinced us we'd made the better choice. We camped at Goldfield RV Park in a Motorhome.

Ouachita RV Park, Monroe, Louisiana

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

Older campground (once KOA). Brand new "rehab" management; lady at desk was very nice - explained some of their issues with rehab. Park itself is pleasant - plenty of room, many trees, grass cut, power good, water good, sewer had pipes at ground-level (good!). Gravel sites less than half-bubble off-level; gravel roads in pretty good repair. Bathrooms / showers seemed fairly "clean," however they were in poor repair, to include ceilings and fans. Typical of this part of the country, temporary workers (gas/coal/RR/oil) keep many of these parks going; there are some long-termers, and even a couple park models with a shed-roof; all are neat and in good repair. Nice setting, infrastructure is good, facilities need work. If you don't need the restrooms/showers, and full hook-ups will meet your needs, this is a decent little campground for the price. And you'll pass Sam's Club on the way in. If our trip/schedule dictates, we'd definitely stay at this campground again. We camped at Ouachita RV Park in a Motorhome.

Rocking A RV Park, Vernon, Texas

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

Older campground - (recognizable KOA office building) but still in good repair. Plenty of trees and grass. The sites were level (jacks needed for stability only), water quality/pressure good, same for 50 amp electric; sewer had new flip-caps throughout. Quiet, even though it's next to Rt 287. WalMart right next door. Ladies at the desk were most friendly - escorted us to our site. Work in many parts of the country requires mobility - Vernon is no exception; there were several long-term sites, but all were neat and tidy. This was a stop-through for us; Rocking-A was convenient and easy to find, and we would stay there again if schedule accommodates. We camped at Rocking A RV Park in a Motorhome.
