Bay Furnace Campground USFS, Munising, Michigan

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

We made online reservations six months in advance. There are some first come first serve sites that seemed to be available if you came early. This is a forest service campground so no hookups. There is a large dump station, and water spigots as well as clean vault toilets. There are several long sites but if you are longer than 40 ft it may be difficult to maneuver into them. Our site was level, back in and private as most sites seemed to be. Nice ones are near the lake and we saw several swimmers. Road was a bit rough but one way and wide enough for our fifth wheel and truck. We would stay here again. We camped at Bay Furnace Campground USFS in a Fifth Wheel.

Aune-Osborn Campground, Sault Sainte Marie, Michigan

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $32.00
Overall Rating:

As others have said, this is a nice campground even though there are no sewer hookups. There is a large dump station available. Our site was listed as premium because it was right on the river so you get a great view of the ships heading to and from the locks. We had a back-in site that was level, on grass, sand, gravel and big enough for our 38ft fifth wheel and medium duty truck. People are very friendly here, apparently many camp here every summer so many folks know each other. Don't be surprised if you get invited to a get-together! No pool, campstore, cable, laundry or dog park. We had good cell service and WiFi is available. Would stay here again. We camped at Aune-Osborn Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Interlochen State Park, Interlochen, Michigan

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $33.00
Overall Rating:

We booked this campground online six months in advance so our nightly rate includes the booking fee. Our site was grass/dirt, fairly level with trees. Some sites are tricky to get into due to trees, some of the roads have tight turns. This isn't a great big rig campground, although there are a few long pull-throughs. Most sites have electric and water, no sewer but there is a nice dump station. Nice fire pits and wood is available. There is a softball field, volleyball, boating and swimming beach. A nice camp store with snack bar is available. The power went out in our section for a few hours but was fixed eventually. No WiFi or TV was available. Quiet campground at night, would stay here again. We camped at Interlochen State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Petoskey KOA, Petoskey, Michigan

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $59.00
Overall Rating:

Very nice campground, easy to book online and check-in was smooth. You are escorted to your site. Our site was paved, back-in with water and electric. A nice dump station is available. Our site was level and had trees. The sites are quite close so if you have noisy neighbors you will hear them. The amenities include swimming pool, hot tub, playground, laundry, pet area, cafe and community room which was locked. The workampers are all very friendly. Be aware that when you leave the park and need to take a left turn, the traffic can be heavy so you might wait a long time. We enjoyed our stay. We camped at Petoskey KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Waterways Campground, Cheboygan, Michigan

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $38.00
Overall Rating:

Nice quiet, clean campground with owner on site. Other than some seasonal campers it was never full during our 10 day stay. Sites are grass and fairly level. There is a boat dock available right on the river free for campers with canoes and kayaks, and a fee for those docking their boats. There are some amenities: playground, community room which was locked throughout our stay, showers, free WiFi. No laundry or swimming pool. If you want to explore the area, it is convenient to many places without having to deal with lots of traffic like at Mackinaw City. We did have problems with water pressure being low. Would stay here again. We camped at Waterways Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Platte River Campground, Honor, Michigan

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $26.00
Overall Rating:

We booked on line 6 months prior to our visit. We stayed in the loop that has no hookups. We have solar and at first were worried about the trees but had no issues. You cannot use a generator here. There are electric sites too; all the sites look nice. Most of the paved sites look level and are quite long, but if you are longer than 40ft you may have a problem. I agree with the previous reviewer that the pull-through sites are not long enough or have trees in the way. Many sites have picnic tables and fire pits a few feet away from where you place your rig. Be careful at night as it is really dark. The bathhouses only have two showers so might get crowded in summer. Lake access is convenient and river tubing/kayaking is nearby. Ranger programs start late June. Lots to do here! We enjoyed our stay. Just make sure you bring mosquito repellent. We camped at Platte River Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Ludington State Park, Ludington, Michigan

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $27.00
Overall Rating:

We made reservations 6 months in advance. If you are from out of state you will pay a $9 daily fee in addition to your camping fee unless you purchase a yearly state park pass for $32. The pass allows you to avoid the daily fee at all state parks in MI. This campground is beautiful and busy filled with tents and all kinds of campers in the three campgrounds. We had a paved pull-through site with 50A, no water or sewer. There are also 30A sites or dry campsites. This park is not very big rig friendly. If you are 40ft or over I would avoid this park. There is a lot to do here, swim in the lake, fish, hike, bike, visit the lighthouse and dam. We saw many kids and families mostly from Michigan. There is a nice camp store and a beach house with food and ice cream. The staff are friendly. There is a big dump station located a mile or more before you enter the park where you can also fill your tank. We camped at Ludington State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Illinois State Fair Campgrounds, Springfield, Illinois

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

The fairgrounds is easy to find and well marked with signs. Go into Gate 11 where you can see the campground. We stayed one night in the asphalt camping area. It was almost empty. We had water and 50A, no picnic tables or other amenities only parking. Some sites had full hookups. Boondocking is $15. The office is located on the hill behind the asphalt area where other sites are located in a grassy area. We saw restrooms here. There is a dump station available. Check the calendar for any fairground events as the campground may be full. We felt safe here and drove into town to visit the Abraham Lincoln sites.

This fairgrounds public campground is open year round 24 hrs on a first come basis. Make sure you check the calendar for any RV rallies or the state fair.

Sites are grass and can get muddy if it rains causing your RV to get stuck. Roads are gravel. Dump station, restrooms with showers are available. No WiFi or laundry. We were here for a rally otherwise there is not much to do. We camped at Missouri State Fair Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Fleming Park/Blue Springs Campground, Blue Springs, Missouri

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

Located not too far off Hwy 291. Check in was easy, hosts were friendly. We were in an electric only site. Full hook ups are available for a higher rate. A dump station is available. Most sites are back-in, gravel, not very level but are spacious with picnic table and campfire grill. Our site was not very clean, trash in the grill and cigarette butts everywhere. There is a lake nearby $5pp to swim and $25 to put in a kayak if you have one. The bathrooms/showers are clean. A laundry room has one washer and dryer $1.50 each. The electric post power went out due to heavy AC use as it was hot. There was a low voltage situation at several posts. Overall an ok park.

Turkey Creek RV Village - Escapees Rainbow Park, Hollister, Missouri

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $23.00
Overall Rating:

Not a huge park but located in an area that is convenient to downtown Branson. The campground backs up to a river convenient for kayaking but apparently floods with heavy rain. Sites are back-in, gravel and fairly level. Some sites have a concrete pad and picnic table, ours did not. Water pressure was not good. The park, like many of the Escapees Rainbow parks is worn looking, in need of a make-over. The manager is very friendly and helpful with info about the area. The clubhouse is nice with tables, a library and videos. There is no cable, WiFi, pool or playground. We camped at Turkey Creek RV Village - Escapees Rainbow Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Prairie Creek COE, Rogers, Arkansas

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $23.00
Overall Rating:

Nice Corp of Engineer park with lots of campsites, all back-in. Reserve on line and check in at the gate which can get backed up as there are many boaters and day use folks trying to get in. Roads are easy to navigate. The area is wooded. Our site was level; some sites did not appear so especially the older sites near the lake. Electric 50A or 30A available and water hookup, no sewer but a dump station is available. There is plenty to do- swimming, boating, fishing, hiking, bicycling. Staff are friendly. We were impressed with this park and would definitely come back. We camped at Prairie Creek COE in a Fifth Wheel.

Queen Wilhelmina State Park, Mena, Arkansas

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $27.00
Overall Rating:

Located approximately 10 miles outside of Mena on Rich Mountain. Road is a bit winding but fine. Register at the lodge before moving into a site. All sites are back-in, many are not big rig friendly as the sites are angled funny and the dead-end road is a tight space to turn around. I would suggest scouting out the campsites first. The sites themselves are fairly level, paved with nice picnic table, grill and fire ring. The electric post and water hookups are oddly located behind the site; we used every inch of our cord. There is no sewer but the dump station is spacious and clean. No amenities like WiFi, cable, pool, but we did see mini golf and a train ride that were not open the day we were there. We found the campground to be quiet. The lodge and beautiful views are within walking distance. A gift store and restaurant is available as well as some interesting programs. Nice place to stay. We camped at Queen Wilhelmina State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Pontchartrain Landing, New Orleans, Louisiana

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

There aren't many choices of good campgrounds near the city, and the closer you get the more expensive places are. This campground is $96/night regular rate. Getting to the campground was interesting as the road is quite bad and the area is industrial. You will see the entrance past the marina. The spots are tight, Water pressure almost nil in the morning, the roads very dusty, WiFi not good, loud aircraft flying overhead. But the pluses are the staff, the convenient $6 round trip shuttle to the city (about 15 min), restaurant on the premises with live music, nice breeze from Lake Ponchatrain, and convenient Uber or taxi service that comes to the park. You can arrange various tours as well. We weren't that impressed with the restaurant but they had good live music. There are large groups that book this campground so make reservations far in advance. We camped at Pontchartrain Landing in a Fifth Wheel.

Shady Creek RV Park & Storage, Aubrey, Texas

Date of Stay: February, 2018 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

Not too far off main road. Check-in was easy and they guide you to your spot. All sites are gravel and back-in. The sites are pretty close and electric poles are oddly placed. Ours was very close to our neighbor, we had to back up so our cord would reach. The cord was right in front of our neighbors door. Voltage read 127V at the post, a bit high. It rained a lot during our stay and while the creek did not overflow,there was quite a bit of standing water. The park is quiet, they offer propane and the staff are very friendly.
