Double J Campground and RV Park, Chatham, Illinois

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

Nice park but not one handicapped space and no spaces with any concrete. Had a 45 ft MH & was assigned to a space for 40 ft rig (plenty of other spaces throughout park). The daytime park workers were beyond rude when I pulled up close to let my handicapped wife out close to the door (two different employees on two consecutive days). Due to employees attitudes, pulled out after two nights. Stayed at this park several years ago before current owner made the purchase and upgraded park. Will stay at elsewhere next time. We camped at Double J Campground and RV Park in a Motorhome.

Double J is a stones throw from Springfield, Illinois home to state capital building, state fairgrounds, Abraham Lincoln library and museum. Lots of area activities for adults and children. About 1 1/2 hours north of St Louis, Mo. Park has Chatham city water (treated) but on septic system. Our power showed 114 & 115 volts on each side of the 50 amp legs.

Indianapolis KOA, Greenfield, Indiana

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $61.00
Overall Rating:      

Stayed for 8 nights & was closest park for us to attend Little League Regionals games. The campground was large with many spaces and several long pull throughs with poured concrete patios. Our site and all of the other larger/longer sites had two sewer connections. Typical RV electrical box with 20, 30, & 50 amp service.

The park was divided down the middle by a creek which required a longer walk to the office from some locations. All roads were gravel and each site had fire rings. Several tent sites and cabins. The pool seemed kind of small although we never saw it overflowing. The pool had chair to lower handicapped persons into the pool. The "store" was well stocked with good prices. Good fenced in dog walk. Except for the first weekend, the park was quiet. Tight squeeze between buildings for check in which would be worse if coming in first time after dark. Had rec hall with several tables which we did not use.

Cons. Owner was less than welcoming, but staff was friendly. Owner mowed close to campers using a side discharge zero turn. He would not allow golf carts in park. He would not allow satellite receivers, grass mats, or bottomed screen rooms in grass.

Wood burning in fire rings was so bad the first two nights, we had to close windows but others were sitting around their fires. Honey bee population was horrible. Could have just been the time of year we were here. Water pressure less than 40 psi for the entire time we were here. We camped at Indianapolis KOA in a Motorhome.

Pony Express RV Park & Campgrounds, Maysville, Missouri

Date of Stay: July, 2009 - $27.00
Overall Rating:      

Large acreage (100 acres) with steep gravel roads and large deep ruts between road and sites. Appears more like a state park than RV campgrounds. Many activities including trails for 4-wheelers and horses, Petting zoo, two fishing lakes, and live band type entertainment. Web site appears accurate except this facility is not big rig friendly with the steep terrain and ruts. We arrived on Friday night and stayed one night. On site manager friendly and gave us our choice of available sites. We camped at Pony Express RV Park & Campgrounds in a Motorhome.

Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park at Monticello (formerly Walnut Acres), Monticello, Iowa

Date of Stay: July, 2009 - $23.00
Overall Rating:      

the camp occupies a large acreage with many pull through sites but the park borders a large river and was underwater for lengthy period earlier this year or last year. Our 50amp breaker malfunctioned and the new owner changed it immediately citing water as the culprit. It rained our only night there and water and mud was everywhere. The laundry room being renovated due to water damage. It has the potential to be a nice place for an overnight or extended stay if not for the current water issues. The new owners friendly and helpful. It needs rock and cosmetic attention. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park at Monticello (formerly Walnut Acres) in a Motorhome.

Date of Stay: July, 2009 - $44.00
Overall Rating:      

Large facility that was packed on the one weekday night we stayed there. 8X8 tent size restriction, many campfires, long sites. Very much big rig friendly and Good Sams discount. The park brochure indicates a charge for WiFi. We camped at Milton/Madison SE KOA (formerly Hidden Valley RV Resort & Campground) in a Motorhome.

Kilby Lake Campground, Montello, Wisconsin

Date of Stay: July, 2009 - $35.00
Overall Rating:      

It is picturesque with greenery and wild berries but not big rig friendly. There are narrow sites and lots of mature trees that inhibit satellite reception. The owners were friendly and strictly enforced quiet time. No sewer hookups were available when we were there (full hookups limited to permanent units), just a small 250 gallon drop tank that had to be pumped three times. Our friends who stayed there in a pop-up at the same time reported clean showers and restrooms but we did not use them. The sandy terrain and very high iron water that left rust everywhere. We had AT&T phone which had no reception. We camped at Kilby Lake Campground in a Motorhome.

Grand Island KOA, Doniphan, Nebraska

Date of Stay: July, 2009 - $34.00
Overall Rating:      

Owners worked hard to provide all a pleasant stay. On site food service/restaurant was reasonably priced with great food. Clean pool, shaded and unshaded sites, all of which are level and most pull through. Some sites were narrow but hopes to construct wide sites in the future. Two shower houses (handicap accessible), one laundry room, and hot tub - none of which we used. Ample dog walk access and plenty of dumpsters. Previously mentioned cooked to order Pizza was above average. We stayed for one week and got to know staff well. First KOA ever for us but a very positive first impression. We camped at Grand Island KOA in a Motorhome.
