Lake Shelby Campground, Shelbyville, Kentucky

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $22.00
Overall Rating:

Hard to rate. Great if you like rustic. It's affordable and peaceful, but there are lots of bugs, restrooms are dated, it's 30 amp only, there's no sewer (except site 1), and the "dump station" is a challenge to use. Trails were so overgrown as to be unusable. Pads are extensions off the edge of the parking lot/boat ramp. The online registration will allow you to park a 45' rig on a 15' pad, so use your best judgement. I think sites 2-5 are 15' long and the rest are 20', but you can hang off both ends a few feet. On the other hand there is usually availability, AT&T and Verizon worked well, and despite all the trees I could get satellite. Staff stop by often and everyone was super nice. We camped at Lake Shelby Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Rest Up Camping & RV Corral, Grayville, Illinois

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $39.00
Overall Rating:

Great campground. Everything new, works well and laid out like it should be. Super-long and level space. No trees yet. AT&T, Verizon & satellite all strong. Food & service at the restaurant were excellent. Shocked we were the only RV there. We camped at Rest Up Camping & RV Corral in a Fifth Wheel.

Riffle Run COE, Burnsville, West Virginia

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $15.00
Overall Rating:

The COE really knows how to build a campground! Peaceful park in a canyon next to a creek and beautiful lake. Wish they took reservations. No AT&T signal. If you want satellite, try one of the first sites on the left as you arrive. Spacious lot size, some with shade.

And for the love of snickerdoodles, take Main St through town and don't let your GPS take you down Oil Creek/McCauley Run. We camped at Riffle Run COE in a Fifth Wheel.

Hidden Springs Campground, Clearville, Pennsylvania

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $48.00
Overall Rating:

This would be an ideal campground EXCEPT for the risk posed by an avoidable hazard. They know bears (plural) get into their dumpsters, but make no effort to enclose or lock them, and don't warn campers to avoid those areas at night. In fact, she chuckled and responded nonchalantly when told about our encounter. Other than that, it's a lovely, quiet campground with clean facilities, nice gravel roads and pads, and spacious sites. Just keep your kids and pets inside after dusk. And feel sorry for the bears, which will probably have to be destroyed after they become too habituated or, heaven forbid, hurt someone.

Follow directions on website, because GPS may lead you to Rice Rd. which is completely inappropriate for RVs. We camped at Hidden Springs Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Mahlon Dickerson Reservation, Jefferson Township, New Jersey

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

This is a great little stopover or getaway. Quiet (except the cicadas), shady, peaceful. No sewer but bathrooms were awesome. Some of the sites are short, but there were also plenty of big rigs. No satellite or OTA signals except one Spanish channel. AT&T and Verizon work well. Bring bug spray! We camped at Mahlon Dickerson Reservation in a Fifth Wheel.

Lums Pond State Park, Bear, Delaware

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

I wish all state parks were like this. Wide paved roads and asphault pads, spacious & level sites, very clean, lots to do, very quiet. It can be muddy after a heavy rain. No satellite, but 50 OTA channels. Good AT&T and Verizon signals. Nice bathrooms. We camped at Lums Pond State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Five Islands Ocean Resort, Lower Five Islands, Nova Scotia

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $37.00
Overall Rating:

Nice owner making lots of improvements. He was adding more 50 amp sites when we visited. Nice campground, views, clamming. Warning: the 30 amp sites in section X are on grass and the ground gets very soft with some standing puddles when it rains. We're pretty heavy and worried about getting stuck in the mud. We parked on boards and laid down boards and stall mats to make it out. We camped at Five Islands Ocean Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Buckeye Lake / Columbus East KOA, Buckeye Lake, Ohio

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $69.00
Overall Rating:

As a retired couple, we usually avoid KOAs. We find them to be cramped, noisy, and pricey due to family-oriented amenities and activities that we don't use. But we didn't have much choice and ended up at Buckeye Lake. What a lovely surprise! Large, shaded sites in a peaceful, wooded campground. Wonderful staff. Still pricey, but would stay again.

Sayre City Park Campground, Sayre, Oklahoma

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $12.00
Overall Rating:

I wish every place I camped was like this place! Please, please show the City of Sayre your appreciation for providing this awesome park by patronizing it. It's easy to access, big rig friendly, level, quiet and offers several amenities including 50 amp service for only $12 a night. Wide long sites, lots of pull-throughs, not at all crowded. OTA and cell signals were all strong. Wish I could have stayed longer. We camped at Sayre City Park Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Woodland Village RV and Mobile Home Park, Portage, Indiana

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

This is the first time in 9 years using RV Park Reviews that I have felt misled by a campground rating. This place deserves a Below Average rating. I don't care that it's mostly mobile homes. But it's noisy, run-down, and poorly laid out (we couldn't even use the first site they sent us to because with our tires on the two narrow strips of broken concrete that serve as a pad we couldn't put our slide out without hitting the electric pedestal). Roads are torn up and so crowded and narrow it was challenging to get in and out. Tracks run right next to the park and trains blare their horns all night. I should have given up after being unable to reach the office, leaving multiple messages to make a reservation, and not having them returned. I wouldn't stay here again unless I had no other options. We camped at Woodland Village RV and Mobile Home Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tingley Lake Estates RV Park, Klamath Falls, Oregon

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

This is a lovely spot next to a small lake in a very quiet 55+ community (RV sites on the opposite side of the lake). Staff couldn't have been nicer. Only drawbacks were 1) they charge $20/night extra for 50 amp, which we couldn't use anyway because 2) the sites are not very conducive to trailers/5th wheels. Hookups were at the rear or on the wrong side (and we made our reservations several weeks in advance for mid-week during the first week of May). We had to back up almost to the pedestal, add our 50-to-30 amp extension, get very close to the neighbor, and block his view of the lake. It was fine for an overnight stay. No sewer hookups or dump station - there's a honey wagon that visits on certain days or the fairgrounds down the road. Good cell service and over-the-air TV. We camped at Tingley Lake Estates RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Antelope Valley Fairgrounds, Lancaster, California

Date of Stay: March, 2017 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

Good for what it is - an asphalt parking lot with hookups. Sites are level and spacious enough, hookups are good. Excellent value (only $20 for 30 amp). They don't take reservations, and we were fortunate to snag one of the last sites around 3:30 p.m. (don't know if that's normal). Quiet at night, but it's right next to Edwards Air Force Base and the noise from the planes was deafening when we arrived. A sonic boom shook the RV so hard the next morning we thought something had hit the roof. We camped at Antelope Valley Fairgrounds in a Fifth Wheel.

29 Palms Golf Resort, Twentynine Palms, California

Date of Stay: March, 2017 - $34.00
Overall Rating:

This is the place to stay near Joshua Tree National Park, unless you like dry camping and taking your chances on availability (campgrounds were full the entire week we visited). Close to the park, quiet, spacious sites, level, nice amenities, helpful staff. Each site has gravel parking for your RV and asphalt parking for your vehicle. No cable, but we got all the broadcast channels over-the-air. Park wifi only at the office complex. We camped at 29 Palms Golf Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Eagle View RV Resort, Fort Mcdowell, Arizona

Date of Stay: October, 2015 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

Excellent winter campground if you prefer quiet and scenic over lots of activities. Asphalt sites are level and roomy, but lack landscaping. Roads are wide and well maintained. Good hookups, though water pressure can be low at times. Helpful staff and nice clubhouse/gym with free juice and breakfast pastries. Clean pool and hot tub. Great views of the mountains. A roadrunner likes to hang around and walked up to within a few feet of me. If you're up late you sometimes hear coyotes, otherwise the only noise is an occasional plane or what sounds like a rifle range in the distance. Good Verizon and AT&T. Cable, electric, and taxes are included in the Oct-Dec special. A few miles from town and 15 miles to Scottsdale/Mesa. We camped at Eagle View RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta Park, Albuquerque, New Mexico

Date of Stay: October, 2015 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

This review is for the dry camping section. My rating reflects:

1) Convenience! You do NOT want to deal with Balloon Fiesta traffic, especially when you're already getting up early. You can walk, bike, or take the free shuttle between the lot and the Fiesta. Shuttles are frequent and have a dedicated lane so they don't sit in traffic.

2) Availability. With unlimited dry camping, there's no need to plan ahead or make reservations. Sure I would have preferred hookups, but you need to make those reservations a year in advance, they're pricey, and there's a 3-day minimum.

3) Organization. They quickly checked us in (cash or check only), gave us a swag/information bag, then took us to a site. Water and honey wagon were available, but we didn't need them.

4) Comfort. Sites are fairly level, close but not tight, and easy to get in and out of. Open dirt lot, but they keep it watered. We were fine without hookups - highs are typically mild this time of year. Prior reviewers complained about the noise and smell of neighbors' generators, but we did not experience that. In fact, it was surprisingly quiet.

5) Cost effectiveness. I was pleasantly surprised at the rate, considering our proximity to a major event, and included services like a shuttle.

6) Enjoyment. You get a good view of the Mass Ascension from the CG (but being in the field is SOOOOO much more exciting). Everyone we dealt with was helpful and professional and we were all having a great time.

Verizon and AT&T both worked well. I understand there are several broadcast channels, but with no generator we didn't watch TV.

I wouldn't hesitate to dry camp here again. We camped at Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

If you really want hookups and didn't get a reservation in time, look into joining a rally. Some of them provide power, water and honeywagon service.

Don't buy all your session tickets in advance. If a session is cancelled for weather, you can reuse the ticket.

Check into volunteering for a balloon crew - it really adds to the experience!
