Fort Yargo State Park, Winder, Georgia

Date of Stay: December, 2017 - $32.00
Overall Rating:

We arrived on Christmas Day and there was no staff on site. This park was sites assigned on arrival, and after cruising around a bit, we found one open site ( guess it was ours ). Nice campground, paved interior roads and sites. Some nice pull-thru for big-rigs. Easy to get to and water was on even with below zero temps at night. Out of the hustle and bustle of Atlanta, but not as busy as Stone Mountain and MUCH more quiet. We camped at Fort Yargo State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Aiken State Park, Windsor, South Carolina

Date of Stay: December, 2017 - $22.00
Overall Rating:

Nice quiet campground, a bit off the beaten path. All dirt/sand interior roads and sites, but reasonably graded and all level. Interior road is a bit tight if you are in a big rig, but there were several in the park. Park is back in tall pines and very quiet. We had water even with temps going below freezing at night.

Recommend coming in on SC 53. You can come in from the South over Old Tory Trail, but there are NO SIGNS, but the GPS will give you good directions, even though you think you are off on a wild goose chase. You have to cross over a dirt dam on gravel, but it's a good road, just a bit of a surprise! We camped at Aiken State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Lake Wateree State Recreation Area, Winnsboro, South Carolina

Date of Stay: December, 2017 - $42.00
Overall Rating:

Nice park with paved interior roads and sites. We visited at the end of December and had full hookups even with temps going below freezing at night. Campground was nearly full in the middle of the winter. Fair amount of waterfront sites as well. Value rating was due the the cost in the middle of the winter. Seems reasonable for a summertime, peak season rate, but a little high for off season. Not too far off I-77 for an overnight stop. We camped at Lake Wateree State Recreation Area in a Travel Trailer.

Bolar Mountain Campground USFS, Warm Springs, Virginia

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $22.00
Overall Rating:

Bolar Mountain is off the beaten path in a great way! Very nice campground with paved roads and sites on the lake. As with anything in the VA/WV mountains, take your time on lots of twisty roads, but it's worth it. Don't expect to use electronic communications, no cell, tv, or even radio. You are down in a valley between two ridges and nothing gets in but sunshine! On a clear night the stars are endless however. We camped at Bolar Mountain Campground USFS in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Gas up before getting off the highway. Gas is available in the park ( but at a premium ). Warning, do NOT follow the GPS if it takes you in via VA603. Coming from Warm Springs stay on VA 39 till you get to the park signs on VA600.

Andrew Jackson State Park, Lancaster, South Carolina

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

Visited in Cold Weather ( nights below freezing ). The campground has freeze proof water connections at site and we just disconnected hose at night and reconnected during the day. Very nice small pack, a little tight for larger rigs. We stayed in site 11 which is a bit of a trick to back in between trees and drop off along side of site. We will choose another site ( lots of good other choices ), on a second visit. Suggested to park management that they may want to consider removing the problematic tree. :-) Good location, trails to hike and good historical visit. Close to Landsford Canal SP as well if you are interested in Upstate SC history. 8 miles from shopping, gas and dining if needed. We camped at Andrew Jackson State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Olympic Peninsula / Port Angeles KOA, Port Angeles, Washington

Date of Stay: July, 2010 - $41.00
Overall Rating:

Typical KOA. We do not normally stay KOA because of price/value and we have no need for the kiddie stuff. We were here for three days and the Wi-Fi was useless. After going up to the office were told they were putting in a new system and were sorry (no discount/refunds however). The owners were not too attentive, on our way out a family with a travel trailer stopped in the middle of the entrance/exit road and proceeded to "finish" packing up. After holding up traffic for 15 minutes and three rigs backed up they finally left. The owners stood outside and just watched the circus and never said anything to anyone. It is close to Olympic/Hurricane and the Juan De Fuca coast. Sites a reasonably level and some will fit a big rig if the toad is parked elsewhere. Lot's of kids as normal with a KOA, but the bathrooms on two occasions were filthy (so bad, we would not use them, details not needed). We camped at Olympic Peninsula / Port Angeles KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Grayland Beach State Park, Grayland, Washington

Date of Stay: July, 2010 - $28.00
Overall Rating:

Very nice state park, great/easy big rig access and nice wide interior roads. Good clean facilities and a short walk to a super wide beach. No Wi-Fi, but that is to be expected in a State facility. Overall a great place on the beach. We camped at Grayland Beach State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Forks 101 RV Park, Forks, Washington

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

Super nice people running the park and the grassy sites in the back are quite large. Sites in the front a gravel parking lot type. The owner has shut down the showers when we were here. Very close to Olymipic Hoh/Beaches and Cape Flattery. The back grassy sites are across a small paved drive ( shared ) with a rather run down mobile home park. We didn't care as we were day tripping, but if you decided to sit, it sort of degraded the feel. We would stay here again to visit Olympic all things considered. We camped at Forks 101 RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Van Mall RV Park, Vancouver, Washington

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

After reading past reviews, this does not look like the same park. It is indeed clean, however I can't agree with other comments. The staff was neither friendly or helpful to start with. The sites are neither "long" or "wide", but the other extreme. I have a 34 fifth and the streets are so narrow it is impossible to back into the site. I have only about 4 feet between the street and 6" to the rig behind me. To get the truck into the site as well, it is 6" from the passenger side and I have to open the drivers door and back it up to the front of the 5th wheel, get out and crawl under the goose neck to get to the camper door because of the fences on either side of the site. If you can't get the truck on the small site, you are told to "park on the street" ( a busy city street ) or pay an additional fee of at least $ 5.00 per night ( if available ). The slides stick 12" into the site next to me. I was lucky when I arrived and was able to pull through the site behind me. They have some bigger sites, classified as "premium" that you could park a tow vehicle on but they never tell you that when making reservations. If you are towing a fiver longer than about 26 feet, be prepared. We camped at Van Mall RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Rafter J Bar Ranch Camping Resort, Hill City, South Dakota

Date of Stay: June, 2010 - $48.00
Overall Rating:

This is a clean, well maintained park, with a long list of features. However, the focus of the owners is making money, not value. Everything is provided for advertising purposes, not for real use. For example Wi-Fi is advertised, but so over capacity it is totally unusable from 6:00 - 10:00 PM. From limited cable TV to minor things like the cheapest toilet paper that can be found, everything is focused on making money. In addition, be aware...if making a reservation for 4 days, they expect to be paid for 4 days no matter if you want to stay or not...and no refunds what-so-ever. If you try and pay for say 3 nights...the owner will hunt you down at your site and nearly demand payment on the spot. Typically when paying in this price range we expect paved sites, restrooms closer than a 1/4 mile hike and a staff interested in service; none of this will be found here. There are at least 1000 nice campsites in the Hill City/Custer area, do yourself a favor and choose somewhere else. The rating of 6 is based on value, not what is advertised. We camped at Rafter J Bar Ranch Camping Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Mill Creek Campground & RV Park, Paxico, Kansas

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

Reasonable overnight campground traveling on I-70. Campground has good access, but is sort of hap-hazard in layout. It seems like some sites are in the street and other places the street is in the sites. Good gravel, level sites however. One third of campground appears to permanent / construction worker sites and another third seem to be a regular crowd. Worst issue is noise from either the Interstate or the train that seems to run about every 2-3 hours, 100 yards from the campground. Some of the staff didn't seem to know what was going on but the owner was helpful with assistance. Some of the sites have a distinct sewer smell, this may because of all the rain in the area and was only objectionable when the wind was not blowing. We camped at Mill Creek Campground & RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

High Plains Camping, Oakley, Kansas

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

As stated by last reviewer, this park is quite nice. Has good level sites, easy access. Has very friendly and helpful staff who go out of their way to make you welcome. Has easy access to Monument Rocks, but not much in the way of other services if staying for a few days. Only negative was a strong unpleasant odor. Not sure the source, but with all the rain in the area and the construction improvements may have stirred up some old farm odors in the soil. We had to keep the windows closed and the A/C on for our visit. We camped at High Plains Camping in a Fifth Wheel.

Cottonwoods RV Park, Columbia, Missouri

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

Park has easy access, well marked from Highway 63. Killer speedbumps coming into the park, no speed is too slow, so be careful. Sites are tight as well as the interior roads. While here, an arriving 5th's rear end smacked the pickup across the street, because it is so snug. As long as the park was half full, it was no big deal, but for a weekend it's a little close. Trees at the end of the sites may be pretty but make getting into a site a two person job. Sites are close enough together that your awning will almost touch your neighbors slide outs. Otherwise, very nice, clean and staff is very helpful. Don't let the tight spots keep you away, just be prepared for some wiggling to get in. Columbia has lot's of services and a great downtown to visit for an afternoon of window shopping. We camped at Cottonwoods RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Casino Queen RV Park, East Saint Louis, Illinois

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

For an RV Park in a large city, this was about the best you can expect. Super wide access interior streets, all paved sites and the 500-600 spaces feature grass and a wonderful view of the Arch. Good access to sites and activities in the St. Louis area and well marked signs directing you in and out. No activities for the kids ( it's a Casino ), so the focus is getting you to the gaming area, but can be avoided with no problems. It is noisy, I-55/64/70 are just a stones throw away, and the local rail/metro line is yards away, so plan on running a fan at night. If you want to see the Arch or downtown, this is the place. We camped at Casino Queen RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Elkhorn Campground, Frankfort, Kentucky

Date of Stay: May, 2010 - $23.00
Overall Rating:

Nice small family style campground as others have stated. With all the rain locally this spring, the river has caused some problems, but the owners have done a good job keeping everything in order. The facilities are spotless and well maintained. The only major drawback is the entry road which is basically single lane. There are several older mobile homes near the entrance, but once on the grounds everything is neat and clean. Easy access from Exit 58 off I-64. Most all sites are level so if stopping overnight, an unhook is not necessary. Wi-Fi works from the sites, if using sat TV trees may be an issue however. We camped at Elkhorn Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
