Bear Head Lake State Park, Ely, Minnesota

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

Very nice state park campground. We had to reserve several months ahead of time for a mid-week site. Very brushy between sites which restricts all air flow but makes for great privacy. Very few mosquitos. Nice hiking trails in the park. We camped at Bear Head Lake State Park in a Motorhome.

Moose Lake State Park, Moose Lake, Minnesota

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $29.00
Overall Rating:      

Nicely spaced sites with plenty of foliage between. The bugs were kept to a minimum. The sites were level and dry. There is a nice swimming beach and canoes for rent. It is near several bike trails and had lots of families with bikes in the park. The rock and agate museum is very much still in development but has some interesting exhibits. The Ranger station is open for limited hours. There is very little phone service for Verizon here. Biggest drawback for a motorhome is that there is no dump station in the park. We camped at Moose Lake State Park in a Motorhome.

Thunder Bay KOA, Thunder Bay, Ontario

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $45.00
Overall Rating:      

Very large and nice campground. Many long term units are in many of the shaded sites, but the large, open area near the pool is quite nice. The WIFI is terrible - anywhere in the park. The playground is large and fenced which is great. There are two pools, both nicely warm, a deeper one for adults and a 2-3' one for kids which was great. The splash pad was still being built. The roads to the upper area were steep and rutted but the lower roads were just fine for even the largest RV. We camped at Thunder Bay KOA in a Motorhome.

Galveston Island State Park, Galveston, Texas

Date of Stay: November, 2015 - $22.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed in the Beach side campground which was just behind the dunes from a great beach. Each site has a concrete pad, a fire ring, and concrete shade shelter over a picnic table. We could hear the ocean waves and got a nice breeze. This would not be a good place to camp on a stormy day due to the strong winds. Although the park seems very remote it is a 15 minute drive to many attractions, restaurants, and grocery stores. A huge rainfall had left quite a pond around the restroom and shower area so we never used the facilities, although they look nice and new. We were able to get a good Verizon signal. We camped at Galveston Island State Park in a Motorhome.

New Orleans West KOA, River Ridge, Louisiana

Date of Stay: November, 2015 - $42.00
Overall Rating:      

Half of this park is decent concrete pads for large vehicles. The other half is a dark, messy area for pop-up campers and tents. The whole area is surruounded by a tall fence and feels secure. It is located very conventiently to major roads in NOLA, but does not have road noise. It took about 30 minutes by car to get to the French Quarter. We were given a lot of useful information as we checked in and told about a convenient shuttle to downtown which we did not use. So - there was good service and security, but the park had many very messy areas as well. We camped at New Orleans West KOA in a Motorhome.

Hoodoo Point Campground (City Park), Tower, Minnesota

Date of Stay: June, 2014 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

This campground is good or bad depending on the site that you choose. Some sites are around a large grassy area that looks out to the lake. These are great. Others are on the perimeter of the peninsula and are right on the lake. These have good views but are heavily wooded and the road to them is two dirt ruts. The worst sites are on the interior of the peninsula. The sites are very narrow with heavy woods on both sides. These are the pull through sites but I would never take a large class A in here.

Several large garbage bins and two porta potties sit in the cleared area opening into all these pull through sites which are too narrow to even set up chairs alongside the RV and so full of bugs you wouldn't want to anyway. Good TV service for four stations, some telephone service, near Tower-Soudan State Park, and next to a boat ramp with access to the lake. Just reserve early and choose a good site. We camped at Hoodoo Point Campground (City Park) in a Motorhome.

Kentucky Horse Park Campground, Lexington, Kentucky

Date of Stay: October, 2012 - $27.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a huge campground with very nice large, grassy and shaded sites. Each back-in site has a 55' cement pad, but not all of the pads are very level. The sites are arranged in two figure eights (one within the other) so there is an outside ring and an inside ring. The campground swimming pool and playground are in the center of the eights along with the bathhouses. There is a small grocery store and lots of trails for walking and bike riding. The facilities and events at the Horse Park are open to folks staying in the campground at a reduced cost. The only downside of the campground is the bright lights and extra noise at some of the sites on the inside ring close to the playground and pool. Additional sites are available on the grass - some with electricity. These are the best sites for very large rigs as the cement pads would be very tight. I had good Verizon phone service. Wi-Fi is available for a fee. I would return here, it is a very pleasant place. We camped at Kentucky Horse Park Campground in a Motorhome.

Williamsburg KOA, Williamsburg, Virginia

Date of Stay: September, 2012 - $50.00
Overall Rating:      

There are two KOAs right next to each other - Colonial and Williamsburg - It looks like they bought out a neighboring campground. You sign in at the Colonial KOA. This is convenient to the freeway and Williamsburg, but very quiet and has lots of trees. There are some Premium sites with paved pads but the rest of the pads are gravel and many are uneven. The campground was pretty empty when we arrived in mid fall but we were given a very small, treeless site. We asked to be moved and were given the choice of several much nicer sites. The Wi-Fi is very limited and there is almost no Verizon cell reception. The pool, shower house and laundry is very clean and nice. Lots of washers and dryers all functional. The office staff were very helpful and pleasant. I would camp here again. We camped at Williamsburg KOA in a Motorhome.

Dakota Ridge RV Park, Golden, Colorado

Date of Stay: August, 2011 - $43.00
Overall Rating:      

Very nice campground with lots of green grass, nice level pads, clean buildings and pool. The freeways converge in this area so be careful to read instructions on how to get to the campground, but the noise level is minimal once you get there. The pull-through sites are much nicer than the back-in spots around the edges - much bigger grassy area between units. I would certainly stay here again. We camped at Dakota Ridge RV Park in a Motorhome.

Johnson Lake, SRA, Elwood, Nebraska

Date of Stay: August, 2011 - $18.00
Overall Rating:      

Johnson Lake is a large hydro-irrigation lake surrounded by lake homes and this beautiful State Recreation Area. The SRA has a swimming beach and boat launch as well as two campgrounds. We stayed at the Main campground. Most of the sites have 30 amp electric. There is a dump station nearby. Lots of tall trees, green grass and open space. The sites are all back in, but are quite large with big space between sites. Most have a great view of the lake. We were there midweek and did not need a reservation but were told that it fills up on the weekend. This is a beautiful spot just 7 miles off I-80. Very quiet and well maintained. We camped at Johnson Lake, SRA in a Motorhome.

Spruce Lake RV Resort, Estes Park, Colorado

Date of Stay: July, 2011 - $50.00
Overall Rating:      

This campground is very convenient to Rocky Mountain National Park. It is located along a rushing stream and has a small fishing pond in the middle of the campground area. There is a pool and an activity building. A bridge over the stream takes you to a shopping area with groceries, restaurant and liquor store - very nice. However, the campground sites have been neglected - weeds, no trees, dirt roads and pads, missing sewer connections, broken picnic tables. All sites are back-in and fairly wide so you can park your car next to your camper. However, folks are allowed to park more than one car and more than one trailer in a site which can put a neighbor's truck right up against your camper. The mobile phone service is spotty and Wi-Fi is poor. I was not impressed and would not camp here again. We camped at Spruce Lake RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Very friendly and helpful staff. Level sites with gravel roads. Very little grass or trees, but this is Wyoming. We could see the freeway but not really hear it. The pool, playground, and outdoor areas are very nice. I would definitely stay here again. We camped at Douglas KOA in a Motorhome.

Horse Cave KOA, Horse Cave, Kentucky

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

This campground is close to Mammoth Cave. It has few other redeeming qualities. It is not up to KOA standards. It is set in a hilly, terraced area. The "Pull through" sites are either on very uneven ground with a steep incline to navigate on the far end, or shallow pullouts along the busy campground road that put your door nearly on the road. The back-in sites are very short even for our 28' Class C, and sloped in two directions. Although there are many nice shade trees, the noise from the freeway is so loud and constant it is not pleasant to sit outside. The picnic tables were almost unusable due to heavy warping and splinters. The sites were messy and had potholes. The advertised 50 amp sites were still being "developed." They may offer space for larger rigs. However, at the present a large motorhome or 5th wheel would have a very difficult time getting into most of the sites as well as navigating the campground roads. The staff were neither friendly, nor helpful. There are many other nearby campgrounds. I would not camp here again. We camped at Horse Cave KOA in a Motorhome.

Illinois State Fair Campgrounds, Springfield, Illinois

Date of Stay: May, 2011 - $22.00
Overall Rating:      

This campground is very convenient to visiting the Abraham Lincoln sites in downtown Springfield. The sites are either on grass or a parking lot. We parked on the grass. Some sites are nicely level while others appear to be quite hilly. The area was very quiet as there was not an event in the fairgrounds. Very little street or airplane noise. There is 24 hour security and great campground hosts. The area was easy to navigate in our short motor home, but would work for large vehicles as well. The campground is close to restaurants, shopping centers and parks, but is as quiet as a rural area. I would definitely stay here again. We camped at Illinois State Fair Campgrounds in a Motorhome.

Missoula KOA, Missoula, Montana

Date of Stay: June, 2010 - $39.00
Overall Rating:      

We really enjoyed our short stay at this campground. The pool and hot tubs are sparkling clean and well managed, so that both children and adults can have a good time using them. There is plenty of shade and grass, very good WiFi coverage and some great views of the foothills. Although the campground is just 2 blocks off a main street with many restaurants and services, it is very quiet. I wish we had planned to stay here longer. It is just great. We will be back. We camped at Missoula KOA in a Fifth Wheel.
