Squaw Creek Campground (Linn County Park), Marion, Iowa

Date of Stay: August, 2012 - $19.00
Overall Rating:      

Squaw Creek is a great county park to stay in when in the Cedar Rapids metropolitan area. The campground is divided in to two adjacent campgrounds: (1) a non-reservation section which has electricity and water with gravel pads, and (2) a reservation section that has FHU and mostly concrete pads. Everything else is the same for both sections. The interior roads are blacktopped and any size rig can be accommodated. Every site has a fire ring and a picnic table. The grounds are groomed and the trees throughout the park pose no problems. The new restrooms were clean. We will stay here again when in the area. We camped at Squaw Creek Campground (Linn County Park) in a Fifth Wheel.

West Lake Park, Summit Campground, Davenport, Iowa

Date of Stay: August, 2012 - $19.00
Overall Rating:      

West Lakes is a beautiful county park located in Scott County, Iowa. The roads are blacktopped and the pads are either crushed limestone or blacktop. All sites have a concrete patio, picnic table and a fire ring. A majority of the sites have trees. There are a few sites that are open. The sites are a mix of electricity, electricity/water, and full hookups. Any size of rig can be accommodated. The grounds were very well maintained and the bathrooms were clean. The one curious thing about the park is the gates are locked between 10:30 P.M. and 6:00 A.M. Between these hours you may leave through an automatic gate. If you arrive after closing, you must park your vehicle in the paved parking lot near the entrance and walk in. West Lakes is a great place to camp. We camped at West Lake Park, Summit Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Colony Country Campground (Closed), North Liberty, Iowa

Date of Stay: June, 2012 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

Colony is a well maintained campground located in a suburban setting. The roads and pads are crushed limestone. Any size rig can be accommodated. A majority of the pads are level; a very few need front to back leveling. The newly renovated restrooms are very clean. There is free WiFi. OTA television is satisfactory, depending on where you’re located. The owners are actively involved in the operation of the campgrounds. We will stay here again. We camped at Colony Country Campground (Closed) in a Fifth Wheel.

Margaret MacNider Park, Mason City, Iowa

Date of Stay: June, 2012 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

We've stayed at MacNider on several occasions. I previously reviewed this campground and rated it a seven, but I feel that the recent administrative changes justify giving it an eight rating. Although the park has self-registration, we were met by the new campground host who assisted us in selecting a site. We also noticed that the campground rules and regulations were being enforced. Most of what was discussed in the previous post remains the same. MacNider is an older well-maintained municipal campground with blacktopped interior roads and gravel pads. Most sites can accommodate any size rig. The full hookup sites are closest to the entrance with those next to the road offering the most space. The building that houses the restrooms and laundry is also a FEMA approved emergency shelter. The restrooms were very clean. We will stay here again. We camped at Margaret MacNider Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Big River Resort (formerly Wabasha Motel and RV Park), Wabasha, Minnesota

Date of Stay: June, 2012 - $39.00
Overall Rating:      

The campground is adjacent to the Wabasha Motel. The roads are blacktopped and the pads are crushed limestone. Most sites have a concrete patio and picnic table. The campgrounds are well maintained. The medium sized trees don’t cause any problems. Any size rig can be accommodated. This is a great place to stay, but it’s too expensive. We camped at Big River Resort (formerly Wabasha Motel and RV Park) in a Fifth Wheel.

Thompson West End Campground, Washburn, Wisconsin

Date of Stay: June, 2012 - $22.00
Overall Rating:      

This city owned campground is located on Lake Superior. You self register. The interior roads are blacktopped and the spacious sites are gravel. There are trees throughout the park, but they are far from most pads. Any size rig can be accommodated. Overall, the campground is well maintained. There is some grass around the seasonal residents’ sites. (The city rents sites daily, weekly, or seasonal.) It’s necessary that you fill your fresh water tank before setting up because the sites only have electricity and cable. There is a dump station available at the entrance. The clean restrooms have pay showers. If there was a camp host, he sure made himself scarce. This is a great campground at a reasonable price. We camped at Thompson West End Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Flying Goose Campground, Fairmont, Minnesota

Date of Stay: June, 2012 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

Flying Goose Campground is owned and operated by a friendly farm family with a hands-on attitude. The popular campground is located on the shores of Lake Imogene, a small spring fed lake. The campground is well maintained. The interior roads are blacktopped and the pads are gravel. There are large trees throughout the campground. The positive is there is lots of shade; the downside is the trees make it very difficult to enter some of the sites. I wouldn’t consider Flying Goose big rig friendly, but there were many larger rigs camping. Many of the sites were occupied by seasonal campers. Our site was not level. The restrooms were inspected frequently. As a result, they were very clean. The voltage was low with the air conditioner running. The drinking water had a unique odor. The owners are gradually updating the water, electricity, site size, etc. The OTA television reception was good. Twenty dollars is a group rate. We camped at Flying Goose Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Sherwood Forest Campground, Gilbert, Minnesota

Date of Stay: June, 2012 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

Sherwood Campground is city owned campground. It is located between Lake Ore-be-gone and the Mesabi Recreational Trail. In addition, it is less that a mile from the Iron Range OHV Park. It has blacktopped interior roads and gravel or blacktopped pads. The park can accommodate any size rig. The grounds were well maintained. The bathrooms were adequate. There is free Wi-Fi. The OTA television reception was satisfactory. The office has spotty hours, but the camp host comes immediately if you need assistance. There were two negatives. First, there was very low voltage when using the air conditioner. Second, the water had some sand in it; so to be safe, use a filter. We will stay here again when we’re in the area. We camped at Sherwood Forest Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Winterset City Campground and RV Park, Winterset, Iowa

Date of Stay: May, 2012 - $16.00
Overall Rating:      

Winterset City Campground is a small, well maintained municipal campground that is located next to a large city park. The interior road and pads are crushed limestone. Any size rig can be accommodated. Some sites require leveling. Other sites have low hanging branches. Use caution! The restrooms were clean. There was good OTA television reception. The camp hosts kept to themselves, but a friendly city parks and recreation employee stopped by to inquire if we needed anything. The $16 reflects the group rate. This is a great park at a reasonable price. We will stay here again. We camped at Winterset City Campground and RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Korte's Checkers Welcome Campground, Welcome, Minnesota

Date of Stay: September, 2011 - $14.00
Overall Rating:      

Checkers Welcome RV is owned and operation by a friendly, older couple who live on site. The interior roads and pads are gravel. The park has mature trees. If you have a big rig, you might request one of the open sites to avoid branches. The park entrance could use some tidying up. There might have been several long-term seasonal residents. If so, their rigs were neat, and they did not detract from the overall appearance of the park. The park has Wi-Fi but no cable. The major networks were available with an antenna. It is a Passport America park. This is a basic park at a very reasonable rate. We would stay here again. We camped at Korte's Checkers Welcome Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Wheels West RV Park, Custer, South Dakota

Date of Stay: September, 2011 - $29.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a small, friendly family owned park. The interior roads and pads are gravel. There are twenty sites, half with full hookups and the remainder electric and water. In addition, there are approximately fifteen tent sites. All sites are open. Our site took considerable effort to level and was difficult to exit. It has Wi-Fi. We were able to get one antenna television station. The bathrooms were okay. It was very quiet at night. Wheels West RV Park is a very basic park. We camped at Wheels West RV Park in a Motorhome.

7th Ranch RV Camp, Garryowen, Montana

Date of Stay: September, 2011 - $37.00
Overall Rating:      

This park is located on a ranch near the Little Big Horn Battlefield National Monument. It is not easy to get to. We exited at the Garryowen exit and followed the 7th Ranch signs. Our trek ended on a one fourth mile rough gravel county road. We were greeted by the owner, given ice cream, and escorted to our site. The interior roads and pads are gravel. Our site needed leveling. There is a tree, flowers, picnic table, and a grill at each site. There are several negatives about the park. We were able to get only one antenna channel, and the park Wi-Fi was very weak. Another disappointment was the fact that our Verizon MiFi was very slow. However, our Verizon phones worked fine. We rate the park a nine for friendliness, cleanliness and appearance, but rate it a seven for rough entrance road, steep interior roads, no cable, and poor Wi-Fi. If we’re in the area in the future, we’ll definitely stay at 7th Ranch RV Camp again. We camped at 7th Ranch RV Camp in a Fifth Wheel.

Absaroka Bay RV Park, Cody, Wyoming

Date of Stay: August, 2011 - $29.00
Overall Rating:      

Absaroka Bay is a well maintained park. The roads are blacktop, and the pads are gravel. Each site has green grass and a picnic table. The space between the sites is adequate, but the sites are short. The turning radius tends to be tight, too. Wi-Fi was very good, but there was no cable. Cody has several old analog antenna stations. If you have a new HD tv, there is only a PBS station available. The person who checked us in was serious. It is an OK park. We camped at Absaroka Bay RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Coyote Rock RV Resort & Marina, Lincoln City, Oregon

Date of Stay: August, 2011 - $27.00
Overall Rating:      

Coyote Rock RV Park is a rustic fishing camp located on the Siletz River. The owner and staff were very friendly. The roads and pads are gravel. About one third of the sites are on the river. The remaining sites are either open or shaded by mature trees. The entrance to the park is very steep. If you like to fish, this could be your park. Twenty pound fish were regularly caught in the Siletz. It’s a Passport America park. We camped at Coyote Rock RV Resort & Marina in a Fifth Wheel.

Columbia River RV, Portland, Oregon

Date of Stay: August, 2011 - $24.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a very neat park with easy access to the Portland area. All pads are concrete. The interior roads are blacktopped. The park is designed so it’s easy to park your rig and one other vehicle. There are many long-term residents, but this did not detract from the park’s overall appearance. Everyone, including the office staff, was very friendly. There was airport and road noise, but this did not bother us. We camped at Columbia River RV in a Fifth Wheel.
