Tiffin Motorhomes Service Area (For Service Customers Only), Red Bay, Alabama

Date of Stay: March, 2008 - $10.00
Overall Rating:

Tiffin Campground is located next to their service center and is primarily for people waiting for warranty and non-warranty service. I've had so many questions about it and have stayed their so much that I thought I'd review it. It is great for what it's for -- a place to park and park with full hookups and wait for service or tour the factory or even pick up your new RV. Tiffin has a well-deserved reputation for standing behind their products. There is not much to do in Red Bay, but I've done most of it. I was parked their 5 weeks in February and March and can tell you the following: If you can drop it off, do it. Get an appointment. If they tell you it's a year wait, have your dealer get you in sooner. Eat at Ezzell's BBQ -- it's the best restaurant in town. I don't mean to insult the town, but "best restaurant" isn't saying much. The nicest place to go is the Muscle Shoals/Florence area. Tupelo, MS is 50 minutes west and has Elvis Presley's birthplace and museum. It is also home of Tupelo Hardware Co., where Elvis's mother bought him his first guitar. The Tiffin Campground hosts are as friendly as can be. Take the Tiffin factory tour and make the best of it! We camped at Tiffin Motorhomes Service Area (For Service Customers Only) in a Motorhome.

Burns Park, North Little Rock, Arkansas

Date of Stay: March, 2008 - $16.00
Overall Rating:

This park has large campsites, is convenient to I40, and was our base for exploring Little Rock and the Clinton Presidential Library. It was easy to get in and out, and the campground host was very friendly. I would rate it higher if it had sewer hookups. We camped at Burns Park in a Motorhome.

Holiday COE, Benbrook, Texas

Date of Stay: March, 2008 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

This is another nice U.S. Army Core of Engineers park. It is convenient to Fort Worth and is only a few miles from I20/820. I had a 40' motorhome with a car in tow and had no problem getting in or out. (I turned right where the other reviewer was directed to turn left and had no problem.) The campsites are enormous and beautiful. It is rare to find such large campsites with hookups. The restrooms are primitive and I didn't use them. If you are there, try the ice cream at Braums and don't miss the great museums in Fort Worth. The Amon Carter Museum has a nice collection of Frederic Remington and Charles M. Russell works. We camped at Holiday COE in a Motorhome.

Mission RV Park, El Paso, Texas

Date of Stay: March, 2008 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

This was a decent place to park for a few days and explore El Paso on our way to San Francisco from Red Bay, AL. The paved roads in the park are wide and easy to maneuver and the location is convenient to shopping and the freeway. It is near the freeway, but we did not have excessive noise. We stayed in the "dog area". It was dusty, but it is west Texas. We camped at Mission RV Park in a Motorhome.

Dome Rock Mountain - BLM, Quartzsite, Arizona

Date of Stay: March, 2008
Overall Rating:

I had to rate this Bureau of Land Management free camping area. It is a beautiful place and there is something wonderful about dry camping once in a while. If you can do without gorging on electricity and water for a few days, this place is worth experiencing. Depending on the size of your RV, you may wish to choose a site earlier on the trail as the road eventually may have some dips and bumps that you might not to drag your 45 foot Newell or Prevost over. I can't wait to go back. We camped at Dome Rock Mountain - BLM in a Motorhome.

Lost Hills RV Park (formerly Lost Hills Campground), Lost Hills, California

Date of Stay: March, 2008 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

The other reviews here are right on. This place is fine for an overnight, or if you need to be in that immediate area in an RV. There isn't much else around. I was driving from Quartzsite, AZ to San Francisco, CA and got tired at Barstow. It was a convenient place to pull into for the night. The hookups worked, that's all I can say. The desk man was friendly enough to tell us not to worry about disconnecting the car as long as people could get past us. But, I do think he overcharged me because I probably looked as tired as I was and clearly didn't want to continue down the road. I disagree with the truck stop comment in the other review. It's better than a truck stop. How's that for a slogan? We camped at Lost Hills RV Park (formerly Lost Hills Campground) in a Motorhome.

Majestic Oaks RV Resort, Biloxi, Mississippi

Date of Stay: February, 2008 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

This is a nice luxury RV Park. The buildings, landscaping, pool, etc. are of a much higher quality than average and you pay accordingly. (My rate of $20 reflects the monthly rate.) We stayed here because it is in central Biloxi instead of right off of I-10, and the attractive monthly rate. It is very popular with folks that come down every year for Biloxi's Mardi Gras celebration. We've stayed here twice, this time, and April-June 2007. The people are friendly, and the park is very well maintained. Eat at Shady's, just a short walk up Pass Road for good Pad Thai and gourmet pizza. It is a 15 minute walk to the beach, but it's a long 15 minutes if it's between June and September and the temperature and humidity are both above 90. We camped at Majestic Oaks RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Boyd's Key West Campground, Key West, Florida

Date of Stay: January, 2008 - $95.00
Overall Rating:

This park is a good place to stay to explore Key West. The neighborhood is not wonderful, but the park is very safe. The sites are tight, as you would expect. Some sites are easier to get into than others, but the staff is helpful and our 40' pusher fit nicely with room for our awnings to be out, parking for our Subaru wagon and two scooters. It's expensive, but it's Key West! We were there over the New Year's holiday and had a wonderful time. We camped at Boyd's Key West Campground in a Motorhome.

Fort Myers Beach RV Resort, Fort Myers, Florida

Date of Stay: January, 2008 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

The other reviews are correct, it is a tight park to get in and out of. Our 40' would have been OK if they hadn't put us in a terribly difficult spot. It was inches from a park model and it was nearly impossible to get into. I know better, and I should have changed sites, but for some reason I parked in the difficult spot. We spent a week there and getting out was even more difficult. One of the staff members was a "parking expert" and with his help we got out. I don't recommend this park for anyone over 34'. The people are very nice and the pool is very nice, but it's mostly permanent residents and not made for easy entry/exit. They do have some grassy spots with electric hookups in the front of the park for overnight stops. We camped at Fort Myers Beach RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Camp Gulf, Miramar Beach, Florida

Date of Stay: January, 2008 - $65.00
Overall Rating:

This park is all about the beach. The sites are small, as are all beach RV Parks. The upper park sites are larger, which is what we had for our $65 rate. That is the winter rate, which is the lowest of the year. The beach here is one of the most beautiful in Florida. It's prettier than Palm Beach, Miami Beach, Naples, or Fort Myers Beach. Now, I'm talking about the sand and the ocean, not the cities. Destin has all you would need, with rampant development along the main road. It's not south Florida, so it isn't quite warm enough in the winter, hence the lower rate. But it is more tolerable in summer than the heat of south Florida, hence the higher rates in summer. Staff is friendly and 4.5 mph speed limit is ridiculous. I drove 10 mph and was not ticketed. We camped at Camp Gulf in a Motorhome.

Larry & Penny Thompson Park & Campground, Miami, Florida

Date of Stay: December, 2007 - $22.00
Overall Rating:

This is a nice park with a great "pod" layout that yields nice, large sites with open space behind them. The price is incredible for Miami and is convenient to the freeway. The surrounding area isn't the wealthiest, but it is far from scary. It is a large metro area, which you should keep in mind. We stayed two weeks during the Christmas holiday in 2007 and had a wonderful time. Our site was probably occupied by a long term resident because there was a lot of debris around that I picked up, including broken glass. There was also an infestation of cockroaches in the sewer, which kept me from leaving my gray tank valve open. But, the rest of the park seemed to be well-maintained. We camped at Larry & Penny Thompson Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

Circle 9 Ranch Family Campground, Epsom, New Hampshire

Date of Stay: August, 2007 - $31.00
Overall Rating:

Friendly, owner-run park. Fine for an overnight stay or if you are visiting the Concord area. They have live Country and Western music every Saturday night in their barn. It is loud enough to hear outside and goes past 10:00 p.m. If that would bother you, stay toward the back of the park, away from the barn. Several seasonal and year-round guests. Close to Camping World in Chichester, although service department there has the worst customer service I've ever experienced. It is a dealer-store. We camped at Circle 9 Ranch Family Campground in a Motorhome.

Sands of Time Campground, Avon, North Carolina

Date of Stay: August, 2007 - $37.00
Overall Rating:

Friendly, family-run campground. If you need 50 amp, be sure and get it because it can get hot. This has to be the best value on the Outer Banks. If you don't care about a bunch of extra activities, playgrounds, and other amusement park silliness, then this park is for you. Just a simple, friendly park in a great location. You can walk to the beach by using the crosswalk at Highway 12. The fish market on the corner is handy and so is the grocery. 4x4 beach access is only a mile or so north. We stayed a week and had a wonderful time. We camped at Sands of Time Campground in a Motorhome.

Taps RV Park, Asheville, North Carolina

Date of Stay: August, 2007 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

Quiet, friendly park. Good location for seeing the sites in Asheville. Restaurants are within walking distance and there is a great produce stand nearby. Owner-run and well maintained. Train is close, but not as close as some parks I've stayed at. It didn't bother us. We had some repairs and had to extend our stay a few times and the owner was very accommodating. We camped at Taps RV Park in a Motorhome.

Angels Camp RV & Camping Resort, Angels Camp, California

Date of Stay: May, 2006 - $39.00
Overall Rating:

I found this campground to be well maintained and the new owner was very friendly, helpful, and kind. The Wifi wasn't working, but that is not uncommon in RV parks. The price was a little high for what you get. The Calaveras County Fair was going on next door and the park was full, but there were no problems with rowdy folks or excessive noise. We camped at Angels Camp RV & Camping Resort in a Motorhome.
