Mystic Forest RV Park, Klamath, California

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $32.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed here for 3 nights. Campsites are mostly grassy pull thrus with trees, but there are a few back-in sites in the forest. Ours was one of the grassy sites with a large redwood tree on each side of us. Hookups worked fine, 30 amp electricity, good water pressure, free wifi was good but sometimes faded in and out. Owners were super friendly and helpful. The lady that checked us in said to come back after we got setup and she spent at least 10 minutes giving us maps of the area and marking places of interest that we might want to see. Things that we would not have known about if we had not stayed here, such as a spectacular vista point at the end of a one lane road that overlooked the mouth of the Klamath river as it flowed into the Pacific. Trees of Mystery is less than a mile north of the campground and Crescent City is 14 miles north. Instead of Trees of Mystery, I recommend driving up to Crescent City and driving the Howland Hill Road. It is a 10 mile dirt road that winds thru huge redwoods. The road is pretty rough, cars with low clearance should probably avoid this road. Stop at Scout Tree Trail and also Scout Grove for beautiful walks thru fern covered ground and magnificent redwoods. No AT&T signal at all in this area, but the owner said that Verizon and US Cellular did have good signal here. We would stay here again. We camped at Mystic Forest RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Redwoods River Resort, Leggett, California

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $44.00
Overall Rating:      

Nice campground with redwood trees in your camp site. Lots of different sized sites, but they had sites large enough for our 38' 5th wheel. Sites are all dirt with a fire ring and picnic table. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The little store was nicely stocked with essentials. There is a steep trail that is about 350 yards long down to the Eel river, but it is worth the effort to see the river. Entrance to the campground is directly across from Confusion Hill, a little tourist attraction. No AT&T signal here. The park does have wifi, the first 50MB is free (per device connected) and then you are prompted to pay on the device $5 for 1GB. The wifi is slow and does not support streaming, but was adequate for checking email or searching Google maps. The 50 amp electrical connection was strong, but the water pressure was very weak. We stayed 3 nights and on the morning of our departure I started dumping the black tank. My neighbor came over and asked me to stop dumping because water was coming out of his sewer connection and flooding under his rig. The septic system was clogged or full and the campground owner had to call a septic service. We waited over an hour but needed to get on the road and I eventually just had to leave without being able to dump my tanks. Hopefully this was just a fluke issue. We would probably stay here again. We camped at Redwoods River Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Rio Viento RV Park, Rio Vista, California

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

This is a very nice campground that is out in the middle of nowhere. Access is down a long narrow bumpy levee road. The campground is very clean, with large, level, easy back-in sites. We were in a site that backed up to the levee. We could walk up to the top of the levee, cross the narrow road and be at the edge of the river. There are benches placed along the rivers edge. We were able to watch boats and windsurfers on the river. It can get very windy here. We used this location to visit my daughter in Walnut Creek, which was about a 30 minute drive from the campground. Crossing the Antioch bridge from south of the campground is a $5 toll for 2 axels. If you are towing a trailer it becomes $20. We aproached the campground from I5 and then cut over on the 12 and avoided the toll with the trailer. We had AT&T signal, there is no wifi or other amenities in the campground. The people that checked us in were very friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Rio Viento RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Flagstaff KOA, Flagstaff, Arizona

Date of Stay: July, 2013 - $52.00
Overall Rating:      

KOAs are expensive, $52 for 3 people. Beyond that this is a nice campground located at the base of a mountain with lots of pine trees and very easy to access to activities in and around Flagstaff. We enjoyed the cooler temperatures at this elevation. The staff was very friendly and helpful and escorted us to our site. The roads are all one-way and pretty narrow, with lots of trees, rocks, and some tight corners. Longer rigs will be fine, just exercise some caution as you maneuver through the park. Most of the sites are pull-thru with some back-ins along the perimeter of the park. Sites are pretty close together. Our truck and 38 ft. fifth wheel fit in the site fine with room for 4 slides and the awning. Hook-ups worked fine and were located appropriately in the site. Each site has a picnic table and a BBQ. The park has converted the cable TV signal to all digital. Older TVs may not have a digital tuner, but the park provides free loaner digital converter boxes for anyone that needs it. Wireless internet is provided by TengoInternet, which I have come to loath. It is cumbersome to use and typically only allows for one device to be connected at a time. That may be fine 5 years ago, but nowadays we each carry a smartphone, have a couple of tablets and a laptop with us when we travel. We want to be able to use each of them as needed and usually more than one at a time. Fortunately at this park you can create multiple TengoInternet accounts, I created one for each of our devices and it worked well. I would rather see just a normal wireless access point with a password, but if a park is going to use TengoInternet, KOA Flagstaff got it right by allowing more than one connection. Overall we enjoyed our stay here and would stay again the next time we are in the Flagstaff area. We camped at Flagstaff KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Hilltop RV Park, Fort Stockton, Texas

Date of Stay: July, 2013 - $28.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed here on our way across Texas and stopped again on our way back home. Managers are very friendly and take pride in their park. It is at the top of a hill on the west side of Fort Stockton with a good view all around. Can be windy here. Sites are all pull-thru with good space between. It is all dirt and gravel, but each site has a young tree that will provide some shade in the future as they grow and mature. Internet signal worked well. We enjoyed using the pool. Very clean and well run park, we would stay here again when traveling through Fort Stockton area. We camped at Hilltop RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Leisure Mountain Mobile Home & RV Park, Tijeras, New Mexico

Date of Stay: July, 2013 - $27.00
Overall Rating:      

Rate reflects Good Sam discount. Park is off I-40 in the mountains east of Albuquerque. Was warm during the day, but cooled off at night. Some road noise from I-40, but not bad. Very friendly manager at check-in. Campground is on the side of the mountain and consists of 3 tiers. The first two are back-in sites and the top tier is pull through. The pull through sites were long enough for our 38 ft fifth wheel and tow vehicle. But it was tight pulling out of the site with another rig in the site on the left. I had to back up to get out of the site. Wi-Fi was good, but would drop every so often and need to be re-connected. Campground appeared to be full of long term residents and just couple of overnighters like us. Fine for one night, but I probably would not choose to stay here longer. Roads are dirt and gravel and the site was semi-level. Oddly the water hookup was all the way at the front of the site and I had to use two hoses to reach. No cable TV for overnight sites. We camped at Leisure Mountain Mobile Home & RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Stone Creek RV Park, Schertz, Texas

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

Overall a very nice park. Liked the location, only 25 minutes to the Alamo and Riverwalk area. Also about 25 minutes to Schlitterbahn water park in New Braunfels. (Do yourself a favor and drive to New Braunfels to eat at the Buttermilk Cafe, excellent food!) Park is in a nice area but feels very secluded and away from the city. No road noise from I35. Very nice laundry room with reasonable prices. Park has lots of long term residents but most appear to be all at the back half of the park. The adult only pool is at the front of the park close to where we were, but the family/kids pool was all the way at the back end of the park, too far for our son to walk. We never used it since it was so inconveniently located. The park is built on a sloping hill and many sites would require substantial amounts of leveling blocks to get level. I asked to be moved from the first site we were assigned because it was too much to get level. The second site worked but I had to pull onto a stack of 5 leveling blocks. WiFi worked ok, but was sparadic, sometimes just very slow or would drop even though we were practically next to the main office. We stayed a week and would stay again if we returned to this area. We camped at Stone Creek RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Lakeview RV Resort, Houston, Texas

Date of Stay: June, 2013 - $42.00
Overall Rating:      

Excellent RV resort that is managed very well. We needed a place near downtown Houston to stay while helping our college age daughter get settled for a summer internship at Chevron in Houston. The surrounding area is a bit run down/sketchy looking but once inside it is very nice and we always felt safe. In fact, there were so many sketchy areas around Houston when we looked for a place for our daughter to stay, we ended up renting a Park Model at Lake View for her for the summer. The resort is built around a man made lake with a walking track. Great pool area. The WiFi was the best I have ever experienced at an RV park. Large laundry room but was a little pricey @ $2.50 per load. We stayed for two weeks and would stay there again if returning to the Houston area. We camped at Lakeview RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Very friendly staff. Sites 1-48 are beautiful. Rest of the sites seem run down and uncared for. Had planned to stay a week, but our site was at the west end among mobile homes and what appeared to be long term residents. Left after one night.

Wheels West RV Park, Custer, South Dakota

Date of Stay: July, 2010 - $29.00
Overall Rating:      

We made reservations late (June) for over July 4th and this was the only campground that had space available. The owners are the nicest campground hosts we have ever encountered in our 7 years of RV'ing. The campground has 20 pull-through sites, half with water & electric and half with full hookups. The sites are very close together, you pull in, back side to back side with your neighbor and share the connections for water, electricity and sewer (there are 2 of each). I could have reached out the window and touched my neighbor's slideout. The RV on our door side was also close and we shared the common space. We prefer campgrounds that provide each site it's own space. There are no trees in the sites, but the campground is surrounded by trees. Sites were semi-level gravel with a little bit of grass in-between. Pull-through sites are about 50 feet total making it difficult to park your tow vehicle if you have a longer RV. Restrooms were small but clean. We used this as a base for visiting Mt. Rushmore, Crazy Horse and other area attractions. Free WiFi worked fine, the water pressure was on the low side, but adequate. We camped at Wheels West RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Yellowstone River RV Park and Campground, Billings, Montana

Date of Stay: July, 2010 - $63.00
Overall Rating:      

We stopped in Billings, MT, on our way from Glacier National Park to Mt. Rushmore. The KOA was full so we decided to try the Yellowstone River Campground which was next to the KOA. From the check-in area the campground appeared nice, and they had a full hookup site available. Cost was $49 after the Good Sam discount but rose to $63 with 2 children plus taxes. As we drove to our site we discovered that each site was actually 2 sites with one rig pulled in one way and the other pulled in the opposite way. The sites were extremely small and left very little common space between the rigs in the site. We went back to the office and said we did not want to stay after seeing the sites but they would not refund our money paid just 3 minutes before. The sites were level, water pressure was very low, and the price we paid was outrageous for what the site offered. We will not return to this campground again. We camped at Yellowstone River RV Park and Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

St. Mary Campground (NPS Campground), Glacier National Park, Montana

Date of Stay: July, 2010 - $23.00
Overall Rating:      

This campground has a spectacular view of some of the mountains in Glacier National Park. Easy access to all of the east side areas in the park. Primitive campground with few and far between water spigots. The water spigots are designed so that a hose will not connect, even my water thief hose adapter that has worked well in other state and national parks would not fit the spigots in St. Mary. Pull through sites are tightly curved for longer rigs, and many have bushes and/or trees on both sides. I had a very difficult time getting my 38ft fifth wheel out of our site and ended up having to drive over some bushes. As others have mentioned, bring plenty of groceries with you. The grocery store in St. Mary has no fresh meats, a very minimum amount of produce (think 1 head of lettuce, 2 melons, etc.),but if you want beer or wine, they have a good selection at a high price. Park Cafe has good bison burgers and good homemade pies. The biggest problem we had was the lack of showers in the park. The rangers said the KOA close by offered showers for a price, we drove over and asked at the KOA. They charged $10 per person per shower! This campground had the best view of any we have ever been to, but everything else made it difficult to stay longer than 3 days. We camped at St. Mary Campground (NPS Campground) in a Fifth Wheel.

Mountain Man RV Park, Cave Junction, Oregon

Date of Stay: July, 2009 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

When I called to make the reservation I was told that we were reserving 2 river side sites with direct access to the river for the kids to play in. When we pulled in, the campground did not have easy access to the river and I was directed to a couple of sites in the middle of the park rather than riverside. The other rvs in the park looked like they were residents rather than vacationers. We ended up leaving and not staying. WE DID NOT STAY HERE. We camped at Mountain Man RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
