Pride of America Camping Resort, Pardeeville, Wisconsin

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $50.00
Overall Rating:      

Great for families, LOTS of stuff to do for kids and families of all ages. The sites we stayed in were good sized with lots of room between sites (for a place like this). The site we had was clean, level and well maintained. The hookups were WAY in the back. Had to run about 30 feet of sewer hose, and my water and electrical was stretched to the limit. So be aware of that. Not all sites were that way, but many were. Camp Store was well stocked/staffed. Roads are pretty tight with cars/trucks spilling out onto the roads and the trees REALLY need some trimming. branches and leaves were hitting my windshield as we came/went. VERY low branches everywhere. We have a 35 foot class-A and I wouldn't go any larger than that. Roads are REALLY tight, and not marked 1-way, so things get REALLY dicey fast. This is a family place with live bands and lots of activities. Kids screaming all day long. We heard parties and loud (adult) talking until 2am. Organized events seem to calm down by 10 or 11pm. So if you don't have kids or aren't into live music for 10 straight hours this probably isn't the place for you. This is not a quiet, relaxed get-a-way. This is a fun, loud, weekend long party, for kids and adults. LOTS of golfcarts...everywhere. Everything was on the up-and-up, nothing inappropriate going on or people being obnoxious, it's just a packed, loud, active place. Some people like this. Not really our thing. Probably wouldn't be our first choice in the area, but if we had to stay here again, it wouldn't bother us. We camped at Pride of America Camping Resort in a Motorhome.

Wisconsin Riverside Resort, Spring Green, Wisconsin

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $35.00
Overall Rating:      

I don't remember what we paid, so the price is probably wrong. This is a typical Wisconsin RV park. Grass (some gravel) sites, and TONS of activities for kids and families. REALLY nice (kinda small, but really nice) pool/splash pad area. Tons of places to setup a volleyball game or throw a frisbee(tm) or football or something. There's also this lagoon with a HUGE inflatable island in the middle of it and tons of tubes and other floating toys for the borrowing. Good stuff. The sites are TIGHT, and the sewer hook up is WAY in the back. I have a 25 foot hose and it was stretched tight. When we pulled in, we couldn't believe the space I needed to back into was actually a campsite. It just looked like a sandy area between two other campers. :) Good thing I'm an RV-backing ninja, so I got it in without a problem, but it REALLY didn't look like a campsite. When the place was full, like it was when we were there, it looks like a festival grounds. trucks, cars, people bikes everywhere. People were cool, though. There is a bar/restaurant that keeps traffic at a steady flow. They have a well stocked store, and showers and whatnot as well. Fire pits are comically small, which is probably good considering how close the sites are. Many of the sites in the are we were in seemed like they were new which made the hookups and whatnot top-notch, so that was cool. Anyway, nice place, just tight and busy, but if you have kids or a family (we don't) it's probably all good. If you're looking for a place to hang out and read a book or something... go before/after the school year. We camped at Wisconsin Riverside Resort in a Motorhome.

Hit all the Frank Lloyd Wright stuff. Fun/Fascinating/scenic. There's a good (gravel) bike trail a few miles way if you are interested. Take in the local scene. Local brat "fry", fish fry, road side food stands etc. Look for a farmers market to get your campfood, and supplement from the local grocery store.

Big Foot Beach State Park, Lake Geneva, Wisconsin

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $57.00
Overall Rating:      

We were SUPER frustrated with this place most of the time we were there. There ARE some good things about this place, so I'll start with those. Most of the sites are HUGE, like CRAZY huge which is great. Most of them are also heavily wooded which makes them nice and private, which is also good. Proximity to the beach is great, for the most part. It's a pretty solid hike from the campground to the beach. Took me about 15-20 minutes at a normal pace. So, that's about the extent of the good. On to the bad: The woman who checked us in was awful. One of these "all about barking out the rules, even though you didn't ask or have any intention of violating any of them" kind of people. ZERO personality. There was a guy there who was much nicer and seemed to be sympathetic to the treatment I was getting but seemed powerless to make corrections even though he was the one carrying the gun. :) The roads are paved but REALLY tight. I have a 35 foot RV and I'm REALLY glad we didn't tow the car this time. It was like a slalom course trying not to scrape trees on the road side (trade off for the nice wooded sites I know, but just say'n). I felt like I was trail blazing also with all the branches and limbs smacking my RV the whole way in and out. Only SOME sites have power, and are completely random as to which ones they are, so pay CLOSE attention when you book if you need that. The entire situation seems like its setup to discourage trailers/RVs (based on our experience and watching someone try to back in a 35 foot trailer - whew... I wanted to give that guy a beer when he finally got it parked, but alcohol isn't allowed in the park, so a thumbs-up sufficed). Although getting into many of the sites is REALLY hard, the sites themselves are HUGE. The showers are only open from 7am to 11pm which is frustrating, especially in the morning. So forget the early bird showers to beat the rush. Fire pits are rusted out and bent up but sufficient. That's all I got. We camped at Big Foot Beach State Park in a Motorhome.

Bull Shoals - White River State Park, Bull Shoals, Arkansas

Date of Stay: May, 2016 - $32.00
Overall Rating:      

We were here for 7 days and it was great. We didn't get to fish really because of some goofy thing that happened with the dam that caused the river to be almost impossible to fish due to all the weeds. The second your line hit the water it was covered in weeds and rendered useless. This is a temporary thing and will clear up, just unfortunate that it was a problem during our stay. The campground is nice, well groomed and clean. No problems with the power, water pressure was amazing! And there was no issue with the sewer. Sites were not exactly level but manageable. Our site sloped forward, so we had to back WAYYYYY back into the site so the front leveling jacks would hit the ground which cut into our outside space. Bring legos. The hookups are pretty far back also. I almost had to buy a sewer extension and my water and power lines were stretched ALMOST to their extents. The sites we were in (right across from the boat dock) are VERY narrow and very deep. Table/firepit placement was really awkward and weird to use. Lots of people walking through our site, not realizing it was our site. Location is great. Good cycling routes (if you love epic hills/climbs - whew. 970 ft of gain in 4 miles), fishing from the park, boating from the park, there is a launch into Bull Shoals Lake less than 5 minutes away if you want to do that (we kayaked the lake, super nice). The town of Bull Shoals has all the shops you'll need for basic supplies. Grocery and hardware store. That's about it really. Great place. I'm giving it a 9 because the sites (we stayed in) were really awkward. We camped at Bull Shoals - White River State Park in a Motorhome.

Leon Valley Campground, Sparta, Wisconsin

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

This is a great spot. Close to Sparta's great antique shops, cafes, bars and of course the Elroy Sparta bike trail. The park has some great walking/nature trails that go deep into the woods. Great for a morning walk with the dogs. All the sites are grass and have what might have been gravel pads at one time, but are mostly just grass now. Very well groomed, beautiful grounds. With the morning mist (and a little frost we had) it looked like we were camping on a golf course. Water/Electricity only. We were pretty much the only ones in the park the weekend we were there so it was nice, but the sites look a little tight especially if you are planning on being outside a lot. Staff is incredibly nice. Probably the nicest I've never met while camping. Sites are REALLY REALLY not level. Bring your legos or blocks or whatever. We had to park in a VERY specific spot within our site to be able to use our jacks to level properly (well, close enough anyway). You're on grass/soft ground as well, so your jacks will sink in a bit and you'll get outa whack over night. I felt it was a bit over priced for just water/electricity, and the way they nickle/dime you (based on their website prices, pool use is extra, guests are extra, etc.) you'd think the base price would be a little lower. Anyway, still have it a 9/10 because it really is a great park and super nice people. We camped at Leon Valley Campground in a Motorhome.

Sparta is a cool little town with nice little shops and cafes. I highly recommend taking a stroll through the downtown area as well as hitting some of the outlying areas if you are in to boutique and antique shopping. Really fun stuff. We did not come home empty handed. Of course make sure you get some cycling in. It IS the Cycling Capitol of America!

St Paul East RV Park, Woodbury, Minnesota

Date of Stay: September, 2013 - $43.00
Overall Rating:      

We were almost scared off by all the bad reviews, but decided to stay here anyway and we're glad we did. The location is Perfect for visiting the cities, as well as, being close to outdoor recreation activities. It's a great "Home base" for visiting the area. 50Amp sites with full hookups are available. So far, the staff here has been great. They are pretty hands-on getting you into your spot and making sure you know how everything works. The sites are pretty tight, but that's typical of places like this. We were put in 1A which is right at the entrance to the park, so that was kind of weird. Our site's fire pit looked like a coffee can sunk into the ground with rocks places around it. And after pulling in, the only place to park your car is pretty much on top of the fire pit. Super weird, but we weren't planning on using the fire pit, so it didn't really matter to us. There are much nicer sites in the park that would have been better, but this one worked. Overall, the sites are typical of an RV park. Pretty tight, as level as a gravel park with mature trees can be (bring your legos). Water pressure is pretty low, no problems with the power, our antenna picked up a bunch of St. Paul stations so that was nice. Nice little park, not going to win any contests, but we'd definitely stay here again. We camped at St Paul East RV Park in a Motorhome.

Chain-O-Lakes State Park, Spring Grove, Illinois

Date of Stay: June, 2013 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

This is our 4th time staying here. We use it as a launching point for doing things in the Chicago area. We love this park. It's a huge bummer that there are no sewer hook ups, but we still like the place - which is why we gave it an 8. Aside from being close to Chicago ('bout an hour to downtown, and there is a train station near by to take you downtown if you don't want to drive which is a nice option), there is plenty to do in the campground. There are miles of walking/biking trails, there are playgrounds for the kids, and the waterfront activities are endless. There is a quiet lake in the middle of the campground for kayaking and fishing, the BIG boat launch takes you out on to the big chain of lakes which gives access to all kinds of things. There are some GREAT bars and restaurants on the lake plenty of room to water ski, tube, fish, whatever you're into. There is also a small camp store/concessions with probably the most useless staff I've ever encountered. Bunch of pot-head-types watching movies on a computer behind the counter that get all startled when you walk in.It's well stocked though. Food, supplies, firewood, and I think it's where you can rent boats too (kayaks, canoes, row boats, etc..) If it's hot and humid, breakers will be popping. It sucks. Also, they do have a no alcohol policy. So... drink in your RV with the shades pulled if you really must. :) Fire pits are weird. OK for cooking, but not really great for sitting around and having a fire. That's about it. I highly recommend this place and we'd gladly stay here again. We camped at Chain-O-Lakes State Park in a Motorhome.

Cliffside County Park, Racine, Wisconsin

Date of Stay: June, 2013 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a nice park. I gave it an 8 because it doesn't have full hook-ups, but other then that it was a nice place. It was clean, well taken care of, quiet, large sites (relatively speaking) etc... Being close to Milwaukee it was nice to see the regular police patrols. Super nice bathrooms and showers. Clean, seem new. There's not a whole lot to do in the campground, well, maybe there is, just nothing we were interested in. There were playgrounds for kids, and some really nice tennis courts, and a couple of nice baseball fields. Other then that, there are some trails you can walk on. One trail, about a mile long, takes to a cliff that overlooks Lake Michigan which looks pretty neat. You can also walk to the lake on the local roads and through the neighborhood that boarders the park. Lots of mature trees which is nice for shade, but also kills satellite service for some folks. However, we got about 30 digital channels on our antenna! So, that's good if the weather is bad. Anyway, we'd totally stay there again, nice, basic, quiet. We camped at Cliffside County Park in a Motorhome.

Lake Gogebic State Park, Marenisco, Michigan

Date of Stay: August, 2012 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

This place is a 8 on our campground scale. Nice place, big wide sites with 30 amp hookups. Great views, big, safe fire rings and super friendly staff. Rustic-style state park. On the bad side: bring your extension cords. Sites share the power poles and the sites are not uniform, some are really far from where you can park. Our stock power cable was about 6 feet short. I tried maneuvering around, nosing in instead of backing in, angling, etc, and there was just no way to make it reach. If we were in a trailer or pop-up or something I think we could have gotten ourselves a little closer, but not in a motor home. Not a big deal. I just adapted it down to 110 and used my standard extension cord. We just had to watch the AC/Microwave use. Just be aware. Overall, great place. Lots to do near by. Just a few minute from lake superior. There's a little beach in the campground and a boat launch if you want to use it. Kayaks and canoes can easily launch right from your site. I'm pretty sure they allow that. Enjoy. We camped at Lake Gogebic State Park in a Motorhome.

Overall Rating:      

I'm giving this place a 5 because there are SOME good things about the place, but I doubt we'll be back as long as other options exist. Starting with the good. Location is nice, convenient right off I-39 close to some nice areas to explore. Madison, Janesville, Rockford, etc. There seems to be places on the river/lake that have some good entertainment and (we hear) good food. The park is clean and well maintained. Hookups are in good shape, don't leak, the sewer has a spring loaded cap on it, which is really nice. The roads are mostly gravel with some areas of concrete, there is a nice "hiking" trail that was really nice. Surprisingly nice in fact. The sites are mostly gravel with a few exceptions, but pretty nice over all. They have a camp store with slightly more than the basics, and a "grill" where they make fried fish, shrimp, and other bar-like food. It's setup like a snack bar rather then a "BAR" bar and wasn't too bad. Not sure we'd make a point of eating there again, but it would do in a pinch. They had a "free sweet corn" promotion going this weekend which would have been nice, but we were busy while it was happening. OH, and the "grill" delivers to your RV for free. We did that. Pool area looked nice, although it was a little crowded for our taste, so we didn't use it. On to the bad. The place is run by a gaggle of clueless teenagers more focused on cute boys or the novelty of driving the golf carts around rather then welcoming guests. Although friendly, they rushed through their work duties to get back to socializing, and in the process didn't ask about AAA or GoodSam discounts at the time of check-in. We went back to see if we could get our payment changed but were denied. While in line to check in, it's clear the teenagers had little training, and professionalism is not a priority. Rules, Rules, RULES and more rules. The first few pieces of paper we received were all "YOU MUST," "YOU CAN'T," and "DO NOT!", "Guidelines for an enjoyable stay." Nothing say's "Welcome" quite like a fist-full of rules thrust at you from the first meeting. Indecently, we were accused of having unruly dogs, that barked, wandered around, and defecated everywhere. Our dogs never made a peep. On the accused night, we picked up after them right when we arrived, and they sat under our camp chairs for the 2 hours we were outside on that night. Yet, we had a camp host banging on our RV door at 8am to let us know about how out of control they were. Other campers with LARGE dogs, wandering all over the place and actually barking didn't seem to be a problem though. (Small issue, but note worthy.) Sites are packed in. Little to no room. We look out our door, and it looks like a used pickup truck lot. People wedged in everywhere, trucks angled in all over the place. It's going to be a nightmare getting out of here this morning. This place is noisy, non-stop, kids running all over the place, golf carts zooming around everywhere, bikes everywhere. If you're looking for a relaxing, quiet place, this is not it. There was seemingly endless traffic past our campsite from sun up to well past sun down. They seem to have some organized events which we're not really into, but just added to the noise and chaos of the whole place. Summary: I don't see us coming back here. It's probably a nice place for families or groups of families that travel together, and people who use this place as their "regular" campground, but if you're looking for a getaway or even a quick hassle-free overnight, I think I'd look elsewhere. Like I mentioned earlier, the place is nice, and well groomed. It's just the employees, the atmosphere and the tight, TIGHT campsites that will prevent us from staying here again. We camped at Milton/Madison SE KOA (formerly Hidden Valley RV Resort & Campground) in a Motorhome.

Lakeview Campground, Chilton, Wisconsin

Date of Stay: June, 2012 - $36.00
Overall Rating:      

Lake View Campground is a very well manicured campground with a lot of amenities. There appears to be a densely wooded section for seasonal folks and people with tents and smaller units. Were we stayed was a field with no trees, well groomed gravel roads and gravel/grass sites. Water and Electric only (which seems to be typical of Wisconsin) and a good distance from each other. The view of the lake is SPECTACULAR! There is a SUPER nice off leash dog park with agility equipment available for your dog to play on which was REALLY nice. There's a play ground for kids, a pool, and a bar and grill that looked really nice. They have a fish fry on Friday nights which might be fun to try. It's a bit pricy, but it's walking distance from your camper so it's probably worth it. Each site has a wooden picnic table and a fire ring. The staff was SUPER friendly and helpful. They have a bunch of pretty strict rules, which made us a little nervous. However, they seem to have a "common sense" approach to enforcement. Example: They said "no parking on the grass between sites". People did anyway, but kept it to a minimum and were respectful to other campers and it wasn't a problem. So, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE don't abuse this flexibility if you choose to stay here. I wish they would have talked to our neighbors about the loud music, but it really wasn't a big deal. On to the bad! The sites were less then level. I was able to level without any blocks or anything like that, but my wheels were off the ground on one side and I was STILL leaning a bit. I saw a LOT of people with blocks of wood and "legos" propping up their rigs. Not having sewer is annoying. Bathrooms near the camp sites are porta potty's. The plastic ones. Any they WERE stinky. Whew. So we didn't use them. I'm hoping that is a temporary situation and they will be eventually building "Real" bathrooms, OR putting in the sewer hookups. Sites are a little short. My in-law's 40 foot RV fit, but it left no room to park a car. They have overflow parking near by, but no one likes to do that. Overall, this place is SUPER. It was hard to come up with anything bad to say about it. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Lakeview Campground in a Motorhome.

Rancho Sedona RV Park, Sedona, Arizona

Date of Stay: December, 2010 - $56.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a nice park, with a great location. It's walking distance from some of the best shopping and food. This location also puts you less than 5 miles from pretty much anything in Sedona. Although you are walking distance, the first 1/4 mile or so is on a 2-lane road with no shoulder. The speed limit is 25, but people HAUL along this road and there are a few blind corners. So we chose to drive whenever we left the RV. The park itself is pretty nice. Well kept up, 50amp hook ups, cable TV, etc.. Staff isn't unfriendly, but I wouldn't say they are overly friendly. All business. I was told they have a "sensitive" sewer system and require the little elbow-screw-in deals on your hose. We always use one so that wasn't a problem, but they also require those little bridge-looking deals that you set your hose in to keep it off the ground. That I didn't have, so I bought one from the office. They say it's a health department requirement because of being right on Oak Creek. Whatever, it wasn't expensive, and I kind of like it. :) They are dog friendly, but have very strict rules. Although, I don't think they enforce them. We saw lots of dogs off their leashes (including ours), and no one said anything to us or anyone else. The sites are typical RV-park size; the sites up along the creek seem a little wider though. They have what looks like 2 pull-throughs. I would NOT get those unless you are just staying over night. They are TIGHT. they were both in use this weekend, and you couldn't walk between the two rigs. So I'd avoid those. Sites are all gravel with concrete patios with chairs and a picnic table. That was nice. Getting there. This is a treat. The directions on their website tell you to take I-17 to 179 regardless if you are coming from the north or south. This is a good idea. The tight roads and steep grades north of Sedona on 89 are insane. However, coming up 179 from the south is no picnic either. It's tight, a few dips in the road, but once you get into town, this is where it gets fun. You have to negotiate at least 8 traffic circles before reaching the park. They are single lane, which makes it easier, but it can get a little unnerving. Over all, this is a good park. Location is really the highlight; everything else is pretty typical. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Rancho Sedona RV Park in a Motorhome.

Zion River Resort RV Park & Campground, Virgin, Utah

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

This is our second time staying at this park and we still love it. All good (I'll explain the 9 later) things to say about staying here. It's easy to get to, biking distance to Zion National Park, easy drive to big box stores in Hurricane (Hur-kin) or St. George, ATV/MTB trails close (if you're into that sort of thing), VERY quiet, people are beyond friendly, well groomed park, fire pits, GREAT pool and hot tub, great little store... the list goes on and on. Most sites have grass and a tree, their premium sites are worth the extra money. You get enough extra space that makes a world of difference. There is no cable TV and internet is slow, but manageable (few problems with Hulu or Netflix). However, given it's proximity to Zion and everything else you don't really miss the cable. Ok so why the 9? There were enough petty things that added up to a 1 point hit in my opinion. Although the pull-thru sites are plenty long (even with a toad) they are VERY narrow. Our RV's wheels JUST fit side to side. So our door opened on to the grass, nice grass, but still it made for a messy entryway and no mats are allowed on the grass (which I totally understand). The fire pits are in an odd location at the sites (I'm sure there is a reason, but it's just odd). Although VERY dog friendly the dog "runs" are about the size of a kennel rather then a run. No cell service (not the park's fault, it's just the geography) but it's worth mentioning. That's about it, this place is AWESOME. We camped at Zion River Resort RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

Overall Rating:      

This is a great park. A variety of site lengths and widths to accommodate pretty much any rig. We stayed in a 94 foot site. We never had to unhook our dolly, and there was enough room to park our car in front of or behind our 35 foot rig. While the campground itself is large, the entire park complex is HUGE. Boat rentals, play grounds, water park, etc. With all the stuff to do, it's VERY spread out. It's probably a good mile walk from the campground to the lake, and there are HUGE open areas separating the campground from the other activities. I'm talking about 100's of square yards. There's even a store with a cafe! You can get a rack of ribs for under $20. The best things about this park are A.) The price. $25 for full hookups, not bad. B.) The proximity to the SoCal Wine country. You are literally 2 miles from 30 wineries, some awesome wine tasting. The worst things? Dirt sites, and the gate closing at 10pm. WE JUST made it in. We drove in from Vegas, left at 4pm and rolled in RIGHT as the guy was locking the gate. Thankfully he saw us coming and let us in. This really is a great park, we can't wait to go back. If your looking for a get-a-way or a home base for wine tasting, oh oh oh and the farmer's market in Temecula is AWESOME! Here's the plan, get up on a Saturday, head down to the farmers market in the Historic old town Temecula, load up on all kinds of goodies. Take them back to your camper/RV/whatever, and plan a meal with your loot. Now, hit the wineries in search of something that will pair well with the ingredients from the market. You'll have a great time tasting all the wine and learning about it. After all that searching, you'll have an amazing dinner with the perfect wine while watching the sunset over the lake. Ahh.

Overall this is an OK park. Nothing fancy for sure, but the basics are covered. It's a heavily wooded area, dirt roads and patches of what appear to be natural ground cover. I tend to appreciate the more rustic parks, so this wasn't really a problem. Yes, was VERY dusty and that dust turns to mud VERY quickly with even the smallest amount of water, so plan accordingly. The roads inside the campground are poorly marked and very tight. It seems as though the owners made every effort to leave as many trees standing as possible when creating the roads. This provides for a very nice environment, and lots of shade but it makes getting around the park very difficult. So, there's the trade-off I guess. Unless you are aided by a pack of illuminated bloodhounds, I would NOT suggest arriving here after dark. Sites are also VERY poorly marked (at night anyway) and we made at least 3 trips up and down every road before we found our site. Then we ended up pulling in to the site next to ours thinking it WAS ours and then had to back out and pull in to the correct one. The park was VERY full on the Holiday weekend and combined with how tight the spots and roads are, it made for a very cluttered park. Cars and huge trucks EVERYWHERE. All in all, this was a OK park, as I mentioned. We have a 35 foot Class-A and getting around the park was tight, but doable. I would drop your toad if you have one though. The staff is VERY friendly and helpful, the cliental here seem super nice. Everyone had nice, well kept rigs. It seems like a lot of regulars here. Fun group this weekend. We would come back and, in fact, made reservations for 2 weeks from now to return. We camped at Woody Mountain Campground & RV Park in a Motorhome.
