Las Vegas, New Mexico KOA, Las Vegas, New Mexico

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $38.00
Overall Rating:      

I can't believe I paid $40 for a W/E even with the discount. This place is a mudhole when it rains, which apparently is does a lot. Sites are tight and not level. Many seasonal units, although I can't imagine why. I wonder if the health department ever checks their "food service?" We walked by and decided to pass. Lots of highway noise; could hear it over the white noise on my phone right next to my head. On the positive side, the gentleman checking us in was very nice and helpful. We would never come back. We camped at Las Vegas, New Mexico KOA in a Truck Camper.

Little Bear Campground , West Liberty, Iowa

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

Very tight fit for the big rig with tow. We did get in though. Asked for a level, long site. Got parked on a slope just barely long enough for the rig and tow. Had to circle around twice to get in in the tight quarters, but it did work. Good enough for an overnight. We camped at Little Bear Campground in a Motorhome.

Fort Beale RV Park, Kingman, Arizona

Date of Stay: March, 2014 - $33.00
Overall Rating:      

This park could have been a 10 except for a couple of issues. The web site says sites are $28 a night plus tax, but when you check in, the lady in the office charges you $30 a night plus tax. The other issue is that the whole park is on a gentle slope. It's not obvious when you look, but everyone has to use blocks on one side. I personally don't like having to put out blocks and pick them up. That aside, this is a lovely park! It's very clean and well maintained. The WiFi is strong and fast. The restrooms are very clean. The lady in the office is very nice and helpful with things to see and do. The laundry room is clean. The pool looks nice, but it's not warm enough to swim. The pull-through sites are 65 feet long and 35 feet wide, great to have plenty of room. Satellite and Verizon both work fine. We camped at Fort Beale RV Park in a Motorhome.

Furnace Creek Resort RV Park (Concessionaire Operated), Death Valley National Park, California

Date of Stay: March, 2014 - $37.00
Overall Rating:      

I agree with most of what the previous reviewer had to say. The place has a generally trashy look. There's pet feces everywhere. The RV sites must have been an afterthought. Some of them are just in a row on a strip of asphalt. Some are crammed in between what used to be trees. We got the later. They're all different widths and ours was so narrow our slides were into the bushes on both sides. We went back and requested a different site as many were vacant. The staff refused to even try to accommodate us. What you get is what you get! We spent 8 days without being able to open basement doors. The streets and turns are very tight, but we did manage with our 40 footer; the wife had to "spot" even on the turns. Xanterra really is gouging you on prices. There should be some kind of NPS oversight on these people. An avocado was $4. I saw unleaded gas from $5.42 to $5.98. I had to purchase this outrageous gas twice. Death Valley is a huge park and there's lots of driving to see everything. When the wind blows really hard (only 1 night for us) the power goes on and off repeatedly. We called the office and were told, yeah the wind's blowing and it does that. We finally shut the breaker off and went to bed. We were NOT charged an extra fee for use of the pool and the WiFi. We used both and paid nothing additional. I would not come back here again. We camped at Furnace Creek Resort RV Park (Concessionaire Operated) in a Motorhome.

Emerald Cove Resort, Earp, California

Date of Stay: March, 2014 - $1.00
Overall Rating:      

We took this "resort" up on their offer of 4 free week nights in exchange for their sales pitch. This is a very old, tight park. We were shocked that they put us in such a short, narrow, 30 amp site when they were trying to "impress" us. Actually only some, not many, sites have 50 amp. We're in a "pull-through," but it's only long enough for the coach. Only a few waterfront sites and members get those. Our slides are less than a foot from the grill on one side and about a foot from the neighbor's picnic table on the other side. Wi-Fi is only at the clubhouse. They have pool tables and dart boards, but the equipment is all locked up and no one around. The streets and sites are mostly pea-gravel that tracks into the RV. Restrooms are old, but fairly clean. The bar serves "bar food" at very reasonable prices. If you're not into river and water activities, I have no idea why you'd come here. The salesman that gave us our pitch was extraordinarily rude. We would never come back here. We camped at Emerald Cove Resort in a Motorhome.

Seabreeze RV Resort (Military FamCamp), Seal Beach Naval Weapons Station, California

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

I had a really hard time deciding between 9 and 10. This is a terrific park! It's attractive and well-maintained. They have an RV Wash on the property. Eight to ten washers and dryers, and yes, they are FREE. The location is terrific, less than half an hour from Disney. A pool would be a nice touch; that would have clinched the 10 for me. The station has it's own small harbor and beach front which you can go down to when they don't have a ship anchored. You can't swim, but we got our feet wet. A few hundred yards on the other side of the fence, we were able to swim. Lots of rules, just read them all, they're lengthy, but easy enough to comply with. A little more expensive than we're used to in the midwest, but overall a really great experience. We camped at Seabreeze RV Resort (Military FamCamp) in a Motorhome.

Fruita Campground (NPS Campground), Capitol Reef National Park, Utah

Date of Stay: September, 2013 - $10.00
Overall Rating:      

Hookups would make this a perfect 10! We came in a terrible rain storm and were able to get our choice of several sites. They're fairly level and the big rig sites are in Loop C, next to the amphitheater and the orchards. Apples and pears were ready and you can eat as much as you want while in the orchard, for free. This park is like an oasis in the desert, it's so pretty. We wound up staying 6 days, twice as long as we planned. We would have stayed longer if it wasn't so isolated. In addition to no hookups, there's no cell phone, internet, or TV either. Most of the sites, like ours, are luxuriously covered with trees, so no satellite as well. We did a lot of hiking and sitting out enjoying the beauty. Overall, a really great experience. We camped at Fruita Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

Lots of choices in Moab. All the others are more expensive. This is a great no-frills campground. It's taken care of and the bathrooms are clean. The sites are level, gravel. The utilities all worked fine. If you're just looking for a place to sleep without a lot of bells and whistles, this is it. The owner is very friendly and helpful.

We were really impressed with this park. The site are spacious, level, concrete. The utilities work good. A pool would be nice. There's a walking track all the way around the park. The WiFi was fair. The park is well cared for and very attractive. The commissary and BX are close enough. Don't miss the ticket and tour office, we got a couple of really good military specials there.

Denver West / Central City KOA, Central City, Colorado

Date of Stay: August, 2013 - $45.00
Overall Rating:      

This is not your typical KOA! We try to stay away from KOAs when we can. This one, on the other hand, was fantastic. The setting is gorgeous. Yes, it was interesting getting to the location on the top of a mountain, but the views are excellent and it's only 8 miles off the interstate. They have long, level, concrete pull-throughs, which we picked for an overnight stay. They have some head-ins overlooking the valley which I would love to come back and spend a week in. They have 2 hot tubs, a rec area, and serve pizza and wings at your site! It just doesn't get any better than this. I would love to come back here again and stay longer!

Green River KOA, Green River, Utah

Date of Stay: August, 2013 - $49.00
Overall Rating:      

This is what I've come to expect from KOA. We try not to stay at a KOA if we don't have to. This time, we picked the KOA because it had a pool. So here goes. The good, the sites are well spaced and large enough for a coach with slides on both sides towing a car. The sites are level, too. They have a pool (I guess). The bad, well that goes on and on. The sites are just dirt, gravel would not be accurate; just dirt. The pool was never open; guess they had thunder showers earlier that afternoon, and the owner never really wanted to open it. It usually turns out poorly for us when we pick a park for a pool. Lots of seasonal or long-termers. We were parked facing a whole row of them. Apparently, pet rules don't apply to these people. Five sites had at least four dogs roaming loose. My site was full of pet feces. Two of them approached me while I was hooking up utilities. I tried to shoe them away; the owner says "Oh, they're friendly." I don't care; why are they in my site? I saw one of the dogs run five sites down and jump a dog on a leash that someone was trying to walk. She had to pick her dog up and carry it home! We asked for a 50 amp site. The power through our TRC Voltage Protector cut off several times before we had been parked for an hour. I asked the people across the street if they had electrical problems. They said no, but they were using 30 amps. They told me the coaches down from me that were using 50 amps kept tripping their breakers. The owner/manager? apparently never answers the phone. We tried calling twice before we got here and left a message, too. Nothing. I tried calling twice after we got here and no answer, either. I walked over to the office and he was just sitting there. Overall, I guess all the owner/manager? wants to do is sit in the office and take people's money. This place was outrageously priced at $49 a night for a dirt spot full of feces in the middle of nowhere. I would never stay here again! We camped at Green River KOA in a Motorhome.

Taps RV Park, Asheville, North Carolina

Date of Stay: July, 2013 - $36.00
Overall Rating:      

I think big-rig access was an error in previous reviews. The campground website says "large, level pull-throughs" and "can accomodate the largest made RV's." Neither of these is true. We were in a large coach with slides on both sides towing a car. I told the owner this when I made the reservation. When we got in at 4pm, the office was closed. A note on the door left instructions for me to unhook my toad right there in the entryway and proceed to my site. Without the car, the coach can pull through the very small site. This is NOT my definition of a pull-through! As for large sites that can accomodate the largest made RV, our site is barely long enough for the 40 foot coach. We were instructed to park the dinghy crossways in the front; about half of it is out in the road. This is common at many sites making the road difficult to navigate. Finally, this "large" site is so narrow that I can't open the basements on one side. Our slide is less than 3 inches from the power post and the water faucet. The park is very small and tight maneuvering. We had to get our "neighbor" to move their truck to get out of the site; glad they were up! There are 2 (separate) rooms with a shower and toilet. They were fairly clean. There is one washer/dryer in one of the bathrooms. No other facilities here. Like other reviewers, we chose Taps for the location. I think Good Sam's rating of 6/9.5/9 is pretty far off track. I could not get the Wi-Fi to work, but Verizon worked fine. Biltmore was a blast! We may come back to Asheville, but we would never stay here again. We camped at Taps RV Park in a Motorhome.

Lotts Island Army Airfield RV Park (Military FamCamp), Hunter Army Airfield, Georgia

Date of Stay: July, 2013 - $22.00
Overall Rating:      

This place is a mud hole when in rains! When the sun's out and it drys up some, it's fairly attractive. They have 16 sites. A "few" homesteaders is probably quite an understatement. Also, the fact that it's mostly pull-throughs with a few back-ins is reversed, in my opinion. We came for 4 nights with a reservation. All the nice sites (and pull-throughs) were taken by long-term campers (all but one locals). It had been raining for days and we were stuck with the last back-in that you could walk from the dinghy to the RV. There were 2 other sites left when we parked. The other 13 were mostly locals and looked like they had "set up for the summer." Whatever anyone says about a 14-day limit it is obviously not enforced. Maybe that means you can come in every 14 days and pay for the next 14 days. One other RV showed up while we were there and took a back-in that was under water when it was raining. Since that was a 42 to 45 foot coach, he wouldn't have had a place to park if we had taken that one. No showers, laundry, WiFi, etc; bare bones camping. Yes, they have cable, and that's great because the trees block satellite; but, I only found 37 channels. With public access and duplicates; maybe 10 to 15. Lest this sound completely negative, I was glad to have a place with full-hookups in Savannah for $22 a night. The electric was good, the water had good pressure, and our Verizon phones and MiFi worked great. I enjoy staying on-post, inside the gate and security checks. I would come here again. Finally, I'm not sure how they manage reservations. We made one, but they've been closed the whole time we've been here. If a "drop in" takes the last site; what about your reservation? I don't know how that works. There's only one site left now and they're still closed. What if a drop in takes it and someone had a reservation? An on-site host would be nice. We camped at Lotts Island Army Airfield RV Park (Military FamCamp) in a Motorhome.

Mayberry Campground, Mount Airy, North Carolina

Date of Stay: July, 2013 - $32.00
Overall Rating:      

Very large, attractive campground. Staff was very friendly and helpful. We came for one night and wound up spending three. No tables or fire rings at the sites. They are in the common areas. As mentioned by others, you pick your own site. No trouble circling the grounds in our 40 foot motorhome with the car still in tow. Only about 5 or 6 pull-throughs left when we picked; only a few of those were fairly level. Lots of long-term people; no one around us came or left while we were here. However, from what I could see, all sites were very well kept and maintained. I have no idea how they managed to keep this large area mowed with all the rain, but they did! I think they came by our site twice in 3 days; very helpful with wet grass. Restrooms and shower(s) are behind the office. Men's is 2 toilets and 1 shower, but clean and well attended (and air conditioned). WiFi worked most of the time. Verizon worked fine. Not much on site except a well-cared for campground. We enjoyed "Mayberr" and went hiking at "Mount Pilot." We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Mayberry Campground in a Motorhome.
