Shallow Creek Golf & RV Resort, Gladewater, Texas

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

Overall got much more than expected, especially for the price - was actually surprised at how nice it was. Bathroom facilities were great (4 or 5 uni-sex bathrooms, each with vanity, shower and toilet) - very big and clean. Pool was in excellent shape. My mark-down is due to entrance/exit (exit is horrible for an RV) and unlevel sites. My tow car requires an 8" drop hitch - I slightly dragged going in entrance and didn't even try to use exit with RV - I had to drive out the Entrance or I would have significantly damaged RV rear frame & hitch. LOTS of damage to exit pavement from RVs dragging. Roads and sites in great shape, all concrete, but sites very un-level. My site required 2" blocks under both front levelers, 2" under driver tire and 4" under passenger tire. I saw quite a few RVs with both front wheels off the ground (yikes). A number of trailers with front right jacked way up and rear left just a few inches above ground-level. But the sites were very long, and neighbors close but not too close; however with the angle of sites it wasn't bad. We camped at Shallow Creek Golf & RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Overall good location; we just used it for a weekend, taking our rig out for the first time of the season. No complaints, overall solid location. We camped at Shreveport / Bossier City KOA (formerly Tall Pines RV Park) in a Motorhome.

Pueblo South / Colorado City KOA, Pueblo, Colorado

Date of Stay: May, 2012 - $44.00
Overall Rating:      

Definitely one of the better KOAs we have stayed at. Sites were all good sized, lots of green grass (each site has an underground sprinkler which runs at night). Lots of good children's activities, pool in great shape - overall a very well kept campground. Facilities were in great shape as well, and everything kept very clean. Hosts and WorkKampers all very friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay here again. We camped at Pueblo South / Colorado City KOA in a Motorhome.

Colorado Springs KOA, Fountain, Colorado

Date of Stay: May, 2012 - $38.00
Overall Rating:      

Not much grass - a lot of dirt and gravel, so when windy a lot of dust blew. However facilities overall were in great shape - kept clean also. Children activities were lacking, unless they were toddlers. Sites a bit narrow, even the premium sites. But overall an okay stay. We camped at Colorado Springs KOA in a Motorhome.

Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park at Larkspur, Larkspur, Colorado

Date of Stay: September, 2011 - $48.00
Overall Rating:      

Very unimpressed with this campground. Entrance and interior gravel roads in horrible condition - no problem with 5 MPH limit - faster than that the RV might have shaken apart. We have a triple-slide 36' MH and the "premium" site we had was probably the 2nd worse I've ever seen - the sites had 10-12' high "privacy" shrubs/trees in between each site, approx 10' wide as well. This made our site so narrow that slides on 1 side were in in the shrubs (so I had to crawl under slides to get to electric/water/sewer) and I had less than 3' to walk through on the other side. Also the sites were very unlevel - had to drive up on boards to get even close to level. Upon arrival the staff first positioned me so that entrance step was less than 1' from the fire ring! While they had lots of kids activities, they were generally very unorganized and they did not have enough supplies. Activities like the family hay-ride were not impressive either. Would not ever stay here again. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park at Larkspur in a Motorhome.

Cripple Creek KOA (formerly Cripple Creek / Colorado Springs W. KOA), Cripple Creek, Colorado

Date of Stay: September, 2011 - $35.00
Overall Rating:      

Was impressed with the sites in this KOA, as nearly all of them were 40+ feet wide - didn't feel like we were crowded at all! Lots of grass in front of each site as well, very unusual for something this far west; no shade trees, but that is typical in this area. Campground was well laid out. While they didn't have any specific family activities going on this late in the season, the surrounding Cripple Creek area has lots to offer and we really enjoyed the stay. Bathrooms/Showers/Laundry room were all very clean; appreciated the showers as they are all uni-sex singles, so never had to wait. We definitely plan to stay here again. Only downside was the entrance gravel road was getting a bit rough. We camped at Cripple Creek KOA (formerly Cripple Creek / Colorado Springs W. KOA) in a Motorhome.

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

Overall a good CG - when we stayed here there had been 8" of rain in the last 17 days so there was a lot of mud, but nothing they could do about that. Staff was very friendly; only down side is access road was not in the best of shape. We camped at Grand Island KOA in a Motorhome.

Goodland KOA, Goodland, Kansas

Date of Stay: May, 2011 - $36.00
Overall Rating:      

While a slightly older campground, the owners take a lot of pride in it and have it in great shape - the laundry rooms and shower/bathrooms were always spotless - probably the cleanest we have ever seen. Playground for younger children had older equipment, but well-cared for. Played mini-golf and owner told us to play as many rounds as we wanted for the one charge. Very hospitable and friendly. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Goodland KOA in a Motorhome.

Eugene T Mahoney State Park, Ashland, Nebraska

Date of Stay: October, 2010 - $15.00

CG was in good shape. The roads are in good shape, but a few areas are a bit tight for a 36' MH with tow vehicle. We were here for a special event, and will stay here again for a close weekend stay. We camped at Eugene T Mahoney State Park in a Motorhome.

Pawnee State Recreation Area, Lincoln, Nebraska

Date of Stay: October, 2010 - $17.00
Overall Rating:      

For a state park, excellent! Paved roads in great shape, and paved campsite pads very level: easy to get 35' MH around in. Sites were very large and lots of mature trees/bushes offered privacy: didn't feel like folks walking past were looking right in your site. Bathrooms clean but a bit dated: showers were the "push button for a short period of water, but can't adjust temperature" type. Also, the showerhouse didn't have much room for changing, etc. Playground didn't have much for children, but for as large as the sites were, the kids had plenty of room to play in. We camped at Pawnee State Recreation Area in a Motorhome.

Kansas City East / Oak Grove KOA, Oak Grove, Missouri

Date of Stay: August, 2010 - $45.00
Overall Rating:      

Pulling into the campground we thought it would be very nice; however we quickly discovered that the larger sites with shade and grass were for monthly or seasonal rentals. While very long sites, the nightly spots were somewhat narrow, leaving little room for picnic tables, etc. Also a lack of grass in these sites; pool area was not very clean, with unfortunately many unescorted children in the pool. We camped at Kansas City East / Oak Grove KOA in a Motorhome.

Whittington Woods Campground, Whittington, Illinois

Date of Stay: August, 2010 - $38.00
Overall Rating:      

Only reason we didn't give this campground a "10" was how narrow many of the sites were. While we got an end site, we actually could put out our awning, however there was only about 4 feet between our e/w/s hook-up area and the neighbors slide-outs. Don't think they were happy our slide outs eliminated the use of their picnic table. But this was not true of all sites. Other sites had more room and seemed quite nice. Pool, laundry and other areas all in great condition, and staff was great! We camped at Whittington Woods Campground in a Motorhome.

If the weather had been better, would have been a great campground. Sites were all very muddy, appeared they had some drainage problems. However the water and playground were in good condition. Would stay here again. We camped at Huntington / Fox Fire KOA in a Motorhome.

Lakeview RV Park, Bluff City, Tennessee

Date of Stay: July, 2010 - $37.00
Overall Rating:      

Our first thoughts as we pulled in was "Lakeview Gravel Pit." While an okay campground, with everything clean and well-kept, there was very little of trees or grass, except on the outer fringes of the campground. In fact we found it difficult to find a place to walk the dogs, except on 1 far corner of the park. We had asked for a pull-through site, but the only way they actually can do that is to give you 2 back-to-back sites. Sites were also much smaller than what they stated: the site for our rig was barely 17' x 40'. Most of the sites are actually monthly rentals. This would be an okay stop for an overnight only, wouldn't want to spend an extended time here. We camped at Lakeview RV Park in a Motorhome.

For a FAMCAMP at only $15 per night for 50-amp elec and water service, no complaints! Sites were paved and very level; bathrooms and laundry were very clean. Easy access to amenities on base. Would stay here again without hesitation. We camped at Scott AFB FamCamp (Military FamCamp) in a Motorhome.
