American Legion RV Park, Claremore, Oklahoma

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

Small RV park on the grounds of the American Legion, just minutes from downtown and the Expo Center. We stayed here for the Claremore Bluegrass and Child Festival after someone told us about it. The other parks in the area were filled. Acceptable place for several days. but narrow spaces with no tables, fire pits or patios. One row is easiest for pull throughs, no trees so easy to get a satellite signal. We called a month before and were told "sure, come on it" but they didn't want any deposit and you have no confirmation either, but it worked out ok. Entry is a little tricky in that the driveway goes over a pipe and you have to make sure you are lined up properly. A little tough for very large rigs but there were several there. We camped at American Legion RV Park in a Motorhome.

Salmon Lake Park, Grapeland, Texas

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

We stayed at Salmon Lake for their annual Labor Day bluegrass festival which was very fun. They have a huge variety of different RV sites scattered about, some in open grass fields (which we chose, so we could put up our satellite dish) and a lot of them in the trees. We found the sites easy to level. Nothing fancy, no tables, firepits, patios, just a place to plug in. I'm not sure about the rate of $30 a night I put down. Seems about right but I could be off a little. By the way, I noticed an ant hill by one of our tires when leaving, and discovered a bunch of ants in the coach over that tire. We bring comet cleanser to sprinkle around tires to keep ants off and should have done that. so keep your eye out, when parked out in the grass field. We camped at Salmon Lake Park in a Motorhome.

The owners of the park have spent a lifetime bringing in all sort of historical buildings, cars, implements and it is a fascinating museum of sorts to see it all. We enjoyed it. The small town of Grapeland is minutes away and there is a supermarket there.

Texas Wine Country Jellystone Park Camp-Resort, Fredericksburg, Texas

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $63.00
Overall Rating:      

Very nice park. We were concerned that there may be a lot of noise from the youngsters, but found it very quiet and laid back, since we were there mid-week after school started. Nice long pull through spaces and the staff was busy keeping it maintained. We were able to get satellite from this site, although there are some large trees nearby. We camped at Texas Wine Country Jellystone Park Camp-Resort in a Motorhome.

You couldn't be closer to all the wineries in the area, as they are right across the street and nearby. The town of Fredericksburg, however, was about a ten mile drive. Lots to see in the area, with over 40 wineries, and Luckenbach dance hall nearby. Luckenbach is about 5 miles away. Their 5 o clock acoustic groups meet under the large oak tree and you can check the schedule online.

Junction/North Llano River RV Park, Junction, Texas

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

Very nice park with wide open and spacious pullthroughs with a patio next to them. Scattered large trees. we were able to get our satellite up and working at this site. very nice staff with attention to detail. Of course you have read about the lack of ANY Verizon service in the area. You may as well turn off y0ur phone. AT&T got this area locked up on cell service in the early days and Verizon is just out of it. They do have WiFi. but our phones were dead. While the park is along the Llano River, it was dried up in areas and not flowing. The hurricane was to the East of us and amazingly, did not get into this area. We camped at Junction/North Llano River RV Park in a Motorhome.

Van Horn RV Park (formerly Van Horn KOA), Van Horn, Texas

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

Quiet spot south of the Interstate with wide open spaces and a nice place to stop for the night. There's a Pilot gas station on the way there so it's good to fuel up. Nothing fancy. We requested a private spot and were given a long pull through with nobody on either side. Propane is only available when the office is open. I should have gotten some when we arrived in the afternoon. Nice owners that seem to be working hard to keep the place up. We camped at Van Horn RV Park (formerly Van Horn KOA) in a Motorhome.

Lordsburg KOA, Lordsburg, New Mexico

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

We have this a slightly better rating because of the long length of pull thru sites and the fact that we had a little breathing room between sites. Nothing fancy at all but a convenient overnight stop. You'll hear the train whistles in town, which is over the freeway and a good distance away. Pay close attention to the signs guiding you there, as there are a number of turns to make, to reach the front. We were needing propane for our rig but were told we had to get it early in the morning as the owner would be in church later so we passed on getting propane. We have found it hard to get propane on this vacation as few people know how to pump it, and if the Rv store isn't open, you also can't get it pumped. Our site was just gravel, with a very old wooden picnic table. We camped at Lordsburg KOA in a Motorhome.

Oak Glen RV & Mobile Home Park, Chandler, Oklahoma

Date of Stay: October, 2016 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

Good overnight stop while on I-40, about 50 miles East of Oklahoma City. Chandler seemed to be a charming small town. As I recall, the park is about 8 miles drive off the freeway. We had called ahead, and the lady was very helpful and pleasant in arranging our arrival. he park is on a hilly area, but the sites are very leveled and mostly in the trees. Since most of the leaves had fallen off, our satellite dish was able to connect, but I bet in the summer, it wouldn't have. Lots of tv stations on the antenna, good verizon signal (2 bars) We would stay here again, but only as an overnighter. Road into the park, a little bumpy for a big coach, but overall, a nice experience. We camped at Oak Glen RV & Mobile Home Park in a Motorhome.

Branson Lakeside RV Park, Branson, Missouri

Date of Stay: October, 2016 - $34.00
Overall Rating:      

A wonderful location and the premium spots look out at the water of Lake Taneycomo. We had stayed closer to the theater district in the past, but had not views, were frustrated with the up and down hills and unable to get satellite reception because of all the trees. We were so glad we spent a week here this year. So much to see and also great for biking with all the level areas. You can even bike down the river. When we wanted to stay an extra day, the staff did everything they could to accommodate us and although we had to move a little, we still had a great site. We noticed it's a little more crowded in the interior rows but the place was almost sold out every day. Very popular, and there are docks where you can go out and relax and a nearby marina.

The trains go around the park several times a day but don't blow the whistle nearby and are fun to watch. (2 freight trains a day, and the Scenic train goes by lots.) We would never stay at Branson again, unless we could get a space here.

One slight downside, over which the park has no control. The edge of the lake is city property and a number of fisherman will park along the lake while they fish, blocking some of your view of the water, but the view is still better than other parks we have stayed at. No rugs were allowed on the grass, as it killed the grass and they re-sod it. We camped at Branson Lakeside RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

If you have your mail forwarded, the main Post Office on commercial street is minutes away. Experiment with the various routes that the city of Branson has, Red, Yellow, Blue, to save time and avoid some of the long backups going into the theater area.

There are a total of 159 attractions in Branson, and almost 120 live shows. We always catch Presley's Country Jubilee, the Duttons, Rick Thomas the magician.

Bennett Spring State Park, Lebanon, Missouri

Date of Stay: October, 2016 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

A first class Missouri State Park of which they can be very proud. We are not fisherman, but the trout fishing apparently is world class. The bottom campground can hold any size rig and has full hook ups. There is a VERY steep paved road up the hill to all the other campgrounds, which are not as level or open as the bottom area. I would never take a larger rig up that steep hill. I would estimate the grade close to 20%. Reservations, we hear, are a must, and we were lucky to get the last available site when we were there. Good cell reception. This was a gem and we are glad we got into see it. Some campgrounds shut down the water after October 15th for freezing prevention. We camped at Bennett Spring State Park in a Motorhome.

Cahokia RV Parque, Cahokia, Illinois

Date of Stay: October, 2016 - $44.00
Overall Rating:      

Acceptable for big rigs but close to a very noisy truck route. Staff was very helpful and took us in with no reservations. finding the right exit 1, as you head West, is a tough one, as three interstates come together right before the Mississippi River. We missed it and had to come back from downtown St. Louis, as I'm told a lot of travelers do. The long pull through are actually two spaces so you might have to disconnect your tow to allow another unit behind you. Easy to navigate the roads hooked up. Laundry room is a little small for the size of the park. We camped at Cahokia RV Parque in a Motorhome.

Derby Park RV Parking & Campground, Louisville, Kentucky

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

A most unusual experience. I knew from researching Louisville, that there weren't a lot of top notch locations in which to stay. We picked this Derby Park, site of a large flea market on the weekends, and we made the mistake of arriving during the flea market. The supervisor came in his car and guided us into a large grass and dirt parking lot with electrical boxes on the fences. It is used mainly as a camping spot for RVs during the Kentucky Derby. We plugged in along the fence but then noticed that this was also the parking area for the Haunted House attraction that night. The manager, who really went out of his way to help us in every area, and is to be commended, suggested that we move our rig down to the other side after the flea market closed and we would be away from the Haunted House. We did that, but were surprised in the morning to have our RV surrounded by cars, and a farmer selling chickens and live roosters to a multitude of people. This park is located in a very seedy area, but amazingly we experienced no problems. As nice as the manager was, we will never be back. There were no other RVs that even tried to stay here. Electric only. I heard there was a dump station but with so many cars there, we left. We camped at Derby Park RV Parking & Campground in a Motorhome.

New River Campground, Gauley Bridge, West Virginia

Date of Stay: October, 2016 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

Camp right on the New River or close by at this campground. Scenery is just spectacular. Several sites are parallel to the water, the others head in. Not a fancy park but location, location, location is the key. They have a prime spot in this charming valley. Approach from the West on Route 60. Fairly level from the West Virginia toll road, but right past this park, route 60 is extremely curvy and mountainous, with lots of logging and coal trucks. I can't imagine driving in from the east, but some do. I would never take a larger rig in that way. Nearby towns are picturesque and Glenn's Ferry reminded us of towns in Vermont. Railroad tracks across the water but no whistle blowing in the area so it's not disruptive. Plenty of side roads to explore. We would visit again. One note, for larger rigs, the turnoff, coming West on 60, is right after the CVS Pharmacy and Family Dollar parking lot. It you know exactly where it is, it's possible to do a real wide turn to get in. However, we shot past the entrance, disconnected our tow car in front of the office, and backed up in order to pull through. We have a 42 ft long Class A. Owners are very helpful to their guests. We camped at New River Campground in a Motorhome.

Natural Tunnel State Park, Duffield, Virginia

Date of Stay: October, 2016 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed in the Lover's Leap campground and think this is one of the best RV parks around. The State of Virginia, I am told, doesn't have sewers available at most sites, and that would be the only downside. One other point, you are camped on the top of the mountain, with the tunnel underneath you, and the road up to the top is a fairly steep grade. There is one short section extremely steep for several hundred feet. I would call it a 20% grade and we always disconnect for this final hill. This does seem to keep many of the larger big rig motorhomes, away from this park. We had a 40 ft. long rig and were able to make it, in first gear, going very slow, but just very steep on that one part. It's a lovely park and incredibly well-maintained. The original camp ground nearby is not paved, and not as level as the Lover's Leap. The state does allow use of the road going over the top to some dump trucks, and noticed a lot of them driving over the hill during the daytime. Just a little noisy, but it's not through the campgrounds, just near them. We camped at Natural Tunnel State Park in a Motorhome.

Big Stone Gap is a short drive to the North, a charming town where they filmed the movie. Saturday night shows at the Carter Family Fold in Hilton, Virginia, are a must for traditional bluegrass fans. We enjoy watching trains, but the coal business is down so much, we never saw a train near the Natural Tunnel in a whole week. wonderful hiking trail system that can be accessed near the campgrounds. The tunnel overlook trail is a must!! Take the ski lift tram down to the tunnel.

Cumberland Mountain State Park, Crossville, Tennessee

Date of Stay: October, 2016 - $28.00
Overall Rating:      

I would not recommend a big rig use this state campground. We drove into the park in a forty footer and had much difficulty negotiating the roads, although the branches were trimmed up high enough and the roads were just barely wide enough. there are actually a lot of sites a larger coach can fit into, but backing up and getting into them, turned out to be a major problem. No sewers and the dump station is a little difficult to get into but it can be done. This are lots of trees in the area, with no overall view of the water, but was very quiet at night. I believe we were in site 36 but can't recall exactly. Many parks don't have reservations after labor day, but this park did, so you have to find an open site, then go to the visitor center to pay for it. We camped at Cumberland Mountain State Park in a Motorhome.

Nashville KOA, Nashville, Tennessee

Date of Stay: October, 2016 - $78.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed in one of their patio sites. Although very expensive, and with lots of road noise from the Briley Parkway nearby, this is quite a well-maintained park and the patio sites they have put in are just beautiful. The only complaint I would have, is that there are extremely bright lights around the new pool and spa they put in, and we had to cover our bedroom windows to keep the lights out. They have been doing rennovating and construction at this park for what seems like years, but now it's all over and they have done a fine job. Everybody seems happy with the place. Camping Wold is right around the corner as well. One problem I am seeing and it's not only at this park, but others, are all the people watching their outside tv systems until all hours, with speakers on loud enough to hear 10 spaces a way. This feature is ok for a Nascar race, but so many rv's have them now, and play them rudely and without consideration of the other campers. We had a rig next to us, that would leave the tv and sound on all day, even while they were gone. Shame!! We camped at Nashville KOA in a Motorhome.
