Dellanera RV Park , Galveston, Texas

Date of Stay: October, 2011 - $18.00
Overall Rating:

The rate shown is based on the winter monthly rate. The improvements continue at this park. Along with the new palms planted, there are plans for a playground for kids. Wi-fi works pretty well most of the time, and again, there are plans to improve the service with more power. If you stayed here in the past, you will be pleasantly surprised by the spacing between the sites. They are not as close together as they were before, and there is some breathing room. Sites do face away from the beach, but every site can see the water. It was not a deterrent to us, and we were thankful on windy days not to have the sand blowing at the windshield. Staff is very friendly, knowledge, and responsive. Park is kept very clean and rules are enforced. Very convenient to Galveston activities. The park is on the beach, no roads to cross. On the east access, it's just a ramp now, but they are building a wood ramp access in the near future. It's very easy to access. There is a wooden ramp access on the west side. We like that they reserve by site #, not just "a space". Two items kept this park from getting a 10 from us. One, because this is a public park run by the city ,it is open to "lookee-lou's" and on weekends there is a lot of extra traffic through the park including some "solicitors". The only other deterrent to us was number of dogs running loose (without leashes) on the beach. We would stay here again. We camped at Dellanera RV Park in a Motorhome.

Rock'n E RV Park, Coldspring, Texas

Date of Stay: September, 2011 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

This is a very nice, quiet park, family friendly. Owners are on site and involved. Camp hosts were very nice. There are many tall pine and hardwood trees. Most sites are very shady. Wonderful walking trails, about 6 miles of them intersecting each other. They have put little "treasures" along the way, making it a fun whimsical walk. They also put some benches out along some ravine overlooks, nice for a quiet rest. Nice little playground and a covered pavilion for gatherings. The store and office are clean and well stocked. Our verizon phones and wifi card worked great. We didn't use the park wifi, but they do have it. Could only make one criticism and its a small one, a couple of campers had strung up clotheslines for some items, it looked a little "off"..but it did not deter our overall enjoyment of this park. This is worth getting off the road for..a great park to rest and relax..Lake Livingston and other things to do are within driving distance. We would come back here again. We camped at Rock'n E RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tyler State Park, Tyler, Texas

Date of Stay: September, 2011 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed in area 3, Big Pine, all sites are pull through, a little tight for our 37' and toad, but we made it work. Park has been hit very hard by the drought, many trees are stressed, some have died. Raccoon and squirrel are in abundance. Several trails, the lake was very pretty, paddle boats for rent, roads are a little narrow and the camping areas allow for 2 way traffic, but everyone seems to make it through ok. Saw very little staff and only saw the camp host out and about twice, neither were openly friendly (except lady at fee station). We would like to visit again. Would pick another site then our assigned one this time, all trees around it were dead so we had no shade at all except our awning. We camped at Tyler State Park in a Motorhome.

Lake Bistineau State Park, Doyline, Louisiana

Date of Stay: September, 2011 - $26.00
Overall Rating:

This is a beautiful state park, located about 30 miles SE of Shreveport LA. As a previous reviewer stated, it is in a rural area,there is a "milk and bread" (and not much else) store about 5 miles up the road and it's in a dry parish so bring your supplies with you. The park is kept very clean, there is lots of room to walk, run, hike, bike and ride horses. They have over 10 miles of hiking, biking and horse trails. It has an 18 hole professional Disc Golf course. Lots of trees draped in Spanish Moss and plenty of shade. The boat launch is currently closed due to the drought and low water levels but this does not deter from the natural beauty of this park. You can still fish from the banks or off one of the docks around the park. The staff is friendly and professional. Absolute recommend a visit here. We camped at Lake Bistineau State Park in a Motorhome.

Lakeside RV Park, Livingston, Louisiana

Date of Stay: January, 2011 - $42.00
Overall Rating:

Have reviewed this park before, a year ago, but there have been some not-so-good changes. They used to have great Wi-Fi, provided free with your stay, and for over $40 a night, I expect it. However, now they have gone away from providing the service, and gone to a Tengonet service. Its a weird set up...you have to register even if you are already registered...and then pay after the first day or two depending on your stay length. However, we tried for over an hour and could not get Tengo to give us access. It kept saying we had an account, which we do, but you can't use your previous account with Lakeside's service...but it won't let you register. Very frustrating. We used our Verizon card for the weekend. Then there was a very loud bass beat thumping party in the pavilion Saturday night that went on until after 11PM. Heard several people complain about it. Plus, the kids of the party goers were running thru the park screaming and tearing thru campsites until nearly midnight. Lakeside needs to tighten it back up...it used to be a nice place. But not going to spend $42 a night (with discounts) to be disturbed by wild kids, parties and not even get the internet. Sadly, this may be off our destination list. We camped at Lakeside RV Park in a Motorhome.

Punkin Park Campground, Hammond, Louisiana

Date of Stay: January, 2011 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

This park is OK for an overnight stay, maybe 2 nights tops, not a destination. They do put their over nighter on the freeway side, so there is noise from the I-12 constantly. The park was clean and quiet. It very convenient to Dixie RV and Camping World. Trust the signs, you go down a narrow dead end road, if we hadn't scoped it out by car first, it would have been scary, but signage is great and correct. No longer accept Passport America. Pool is large, very clean, but too cold to use while we were there. We would stay here again if needed to be in the area. We camped at Punkin Park Campground in a Motorhome.

Palmetto Island State Park, Abbeville, Louisiana

Date of Stay: November, 2010 - $16.00
Overall Rating:

This is a brand new state park in LA. They have generous RV spaces, the comfort stations were very clean. The road is gravel; however, the only dust kicked up were by those not obeying the speed limit. If you go the speed limit, there's not that much dust. The nature center is still being worked on, but the splash pad is very nice and even thought it was cool, was working. The trails are nice, one goes on a boardwalk thru a cypress swamp. If we had one complaint, it would be that it appears a little understaffed, only saw the ranger on patrol one time and several camps were very loud and could have used some calming down on Saturday night. We will absolutely go back and support this park. We camped at Palmetto Island State Park in a Motorhome.

Poche's RV Park, Breaux Bridge, Louisiana

Date of Stay: September, 2010 - $26.00
Overall Rating:

This is a nice campground, very quiet, good fishing. Grounds are kept clean and staff is attentive and helpful. Only detractor for us was that some people refuse to do the speed limit. The roads are packed dirt and gravel, so when one of these types came through it raised the dust. Great area to walk and bike, golf carts are allowed. We didn't use the pool, but it looked clean. It is off the freeway, but only about 4 miles, great signage and roads are fine. We will definitely be visiting again. We camped at Poche's RV Park in a Motorhome.

Whispering Meadow RV Park, Westlake, Louisiana

Date of Stay: September, 2010 - $26.00
Overall Rating:

This was our first visit to this park, it's wonderful and we highly recommend it. It's very clean, quiet and conveniently located to the Lake Charles area. The owners are on site and involved, the park shows that pride of ownership. Sites are primarily concrete, with grass medians. They sell propane, have showers and a washer house. The WiFi was good, but limited on "free" time, however if you don't have a hot spot, its a reasonably priced vendor. There is a park across the street and a golf course nearby. We will be staying here again. We camped at Whispering Meadow RV Park in a Motorhome.

Poche Plantation, Convent, Louisiana

Date of Stay: July, 2010 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

This is a very nice park. As others stated, the owner is quite a character and very involved in the park. The tour of the house is a must!! This is NOT your typical stuffy plantation home, "do not touch" tour. In fact, you are invited to touch and to sit. The ghost story is one of a kind, don't miss it. The RV park is nice, most spots are shady, the big rig sites are concrete and do not have much shade. WiFi could definitely use some boosting, we had to use our Verizon WiFi the whole weekend, and it was even spotty at times. The grounds are nice, quiet, comfortable to walk. Wonderful carvings in some of the trees. We would visit here again. We camped at Poche Plantation in a Motorhome.

Magnolia RV Park Resort, Vicksburg, Mississippi

Date of Stay: July, 2010 - $26.00
Overall Rating:

This is a nice park, not sure we would give it “resort” status, but nice all the same. The management is very helpful and friendly. The grounds, pool and office area were clean during our 5 day stay here, they have a charming little sitting garden you can rest in. They will lend you a CD or tape for the Vicksburg Battlefield driving tour so you do not have to buy one at the gift shop. The park is convenient to all the local attractions, getting around is easy by car. The park is a mile off the interstate so it’s very quiet. The downside would be that the spaces are very close together. Our awning touched the border of the next camp over. With the spaces all full, it would be a little tight. Our 36 motorhome had it’s front bumper on the front of the space to get our compact car in behind it, but it worked. This park is way nicer than the parking lot the casino calls a “park”. We would not hesitate to stay here again. We camped at Magnolia RV Park Resort in a Motorhome.

Ameristar Vicksburg RV Park, Vicksburg, Mississippi

Date of Stay: July, 2010 - $27.00
Overall Rating:

Beware: this place is running an old hotel scam. They don't tell you this when you make a reservation but they do not accept debit/credit cards. When you try and check in with your credit/debit card, they warn you that in addition to the $27 per night (which was $5 higher than quoted with no explanation), that they would remove and hold a $50 security deposit PER day and it might take up to 30 days to be returned. We were supposed to stay 5 nights. That would have been over $300 that they wanted to take and hold for 30 days. When asked security for what, there is no TV, or refrigerator to steal (like a hotel room), they had no answer. They will reluctantly take cash, but they will not run your debit/credit as a credit card. They claim our bank is the who does this, but I work at the bank I hold a card with, and they do NOT do this. There are a couple of other good parks in the area. This place is just an old parking lot with some slots put in it. Not worth the price anyway. We camped at Ameristar Vicksburg RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tickfaw State Park, Springfield, Louisiana

Date of Stay: June, 2010 - $16.00
Overall Rating:

A beautiful state park, small, so reserve early. Very quiet, with several board walked trails, plenty of area to bike and hike. One of the cleanest S/P's we've seen. The sites are long and level, most sites have a wood deck area which is very nice, sites are well spaced and give you a nice sense of room and privacy. Fishing pond, canoeing, water spout park for the kids, picnic areas galore. We can see why so many people claim Tickfaw SP as their "favorite". It's going to be one of ours. We camped at Tickfaw State Park in a Motorhome.

Jamaica Beach RV Park, Galveston, Texas

Date of Stay: February, 2010 - $32.00
Overall Rating:

This is a very nice park, if you are in the front row, you have an unrestricted view of the water but be prepared for a little traffic noise. Will take the noise for the sunrises. The spots are concrete and level, a little close together, but not the worst we've seen. Everything worked as it should, the hosts were helpful without being invasive. They serve breakfast on Saturdays and Wednesdays. There are some full timers here, but only one or two older trailers in the back. Pool and splash pad was closed on our visit, but look nice. It's 400 feet to the beach entrance, exactly as it states. We will absolutely be back here. Enjoyed our stayed in Galveston. We camped at Jamaica Beach RV Park in a Motorhome.

Shreveport / Bossier City KOA, Shreveport, Louisiana

Date of Stay: December, 2009 - $33.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed here over Christmas. We enjoyed it a great deal. It's a quiet park, some road noise, but nothing that disturbing. The owners obviously work hard keeping it clean and in good repair. It rained for 2 days when we were there, and drainage was good. The store was cleaned and nicely stocked. Enjoyed the swings through out the property. Would definitely stay there again on our next trip to Shreveport. We camped at Shreveport / Bossier City KOA in a Motorhome.
