This is a decent little park with 3 nine-hole golf courses. Convenient to Andersonville and the Jimmy Carter Historical site among other local attractions. Sites are gravel or grass, and ours was long and level. Most are in the open but there is some shade. Bath house is modern and clean but could use better ventilation. No cable but the antenna picked up a few local stations. Wi-Fi is located in a building and not at sites. The in-season (fall, winter spring) rates include greens fees and are very reasonable. Staff is friendly and helpful. There is good shopping in town, about 5 miles away.

This is a well-maintained and well-managed KOA. We planned to arrive on UNCW move in weekend and were given the last spot, a back in with no sewer hookup. Expecting the worse, it turned out to be a roomy, level space near the pool and bath house. We've stayed here several times previously and will definitely be back. Free Tengonet wi fi, very good digital cable. Some sites have been remodeled with added concrete patios and permanent fire rings.

This is an adequate RV park for what it is. But, no restrooms, no showers, no credit cards accepted, and no cable. Free wi fi is okay. Roadways are mostly sand, sites are sand, grass, and gravel separated by nice grassy areas. Back in sites are quite wide and long, and ours was perfectly level. Most sites are taken by permanent or seasonal units. Staff was helpful, but the access road is under construction and the main entrance is no longer accessible. Owner admitted new signs are needed.

This is a nice little RV park with level concrete pads at each site and a gravel parking area for the tow/towed vehicle. Some shaded sites but most are in the clear. Decent analog cable, Wi-Fi okay, but dropped out with bad weather. The park has several roomy, individual bathrooms with showers. The rate shown is the Good Sam rate.

This is a gem of a parish (AKA: county) park. Not much to add to previous reviews. Many spaces are new concrete, long and wide. All services worked fine at site #19, including Wi-Fi. The park gate is locked at 8 PM so if you go out to dinner, keep an eye on the clock. Bathhouse is rustic, but clean and adequate. We did pick up a few digital TV stations with our antenna, and that was a pleasant surprise. We would definitely stay here again.

This is a very nice RV park in the suburban town of Arlington, about midway between Ft. Worth and Dallas. Lots of nearby shopping and restaurants. As the name implies there are lots of trees, but they are well-trimmed and do not interfere with big rigs. Satellite at some sites may be a problem. Many seasonal and permanent residents, but everyone seemed friendly as did the staff. Very good cable system and a strong TengoInternet Wi-Fi, with several days free. Roadways are paved and mostly in good shape, sites are gravel and some require a bit of work to level the rig. Sites are of decent size and with a reasonable distance between one another. We would definitely stay here again when in the Dallas area.

Typical KOA. Mostly gravel roads and sites. We had a lot of rain overnight and there was only minimal mud and puddles the next morning. Sites were reasonably sized and more or less level. Decent bath house. Excellent digital cable but the Wi-Fi didn't connect to the Internet at my site. Verizon 4G worked fine.

This park appears to be a former KOA. Its a bit dusty with gravel roads and sites, but that's not unusual in the high desert. Sites are of good size and reasonably level. Management is friendly and helpful -- giving us good recommendations for getting a water leak in our trailer fixed. WiFi and cable are among the best we've experienced in any campground. There is a railroad nearby, but the noise wasn't a major problem. Some other reviewers complained about the smell from the nearby stockyard, but we found this to be a faint odor. We would definitely return here if in the area.

This is basically a gravel parking lot with hookups. But, the sites are long, reasonably level and wide, wifi and cable are very good, and staff is friendly and helpful. The rates are quite reasonable. There are limited bathhouse facilities, but they are clean. A word about finding the place. The park's location is listed in some places as being in Grants, NM and in other places as being in Milan, NM. In some places the road is listed as Pinon Rd., and in others as Pinon, Ave. Ignore all that. Just go to Exit 79 on I-40 and follow the signs.

This is a large RV resort between Flagstaff and Sedona. Decent size gravel sites are reasonably level. The park caters to seasonal campers but there are a good number of transient spaces. The rate shown is the Good Sam rate but since the only site available for us didn't have a sewer hookup, we paid $7.50 to use their dump site. Modern, clean restrooms and showers. Very good wi fi and decent analog cable. One issue that was a bit concerning was the fact that a camper was permitted to completely block the turnaround on the roadway we needed to use to get into our pull through site. It looked like they had furniture and patio stuff across the roadway. The attendant said she wished he wouldn't do that, but apparently no effort was made to remedy the situation. Fortunately I was able to go through a vacant site to get to my site, but I wonder what would have happened if that vacant site wasn't available. Other than that, this is a very nice campground.

This is the closest RV park with full hookups to the north rim of Grand Canyon National Park, but 40 miles from the park entrance. Sites and roads are sand/gravel and could be more level. Great pine trees and good shade. Sites are good size, staff is friendly and helpful. Toilets are Porta-Potty chemical toilets and are very clean. We had no problem with electric, water and sewer hookups. Park is within a national forest but is privately owned. No cable, no off-air reception, and sat. may be iffy due to the trees. We would definitely stay here again if visiting the north rim.

This a large, well-run campground a few miles off the strip. The distance from the action is probably the reason for the reasonable rates, which are about half those of parks adjacent to the strip. But if you have an itch to throw away money in the middle of the night, there's a big casino right around the corner. Roadways and sites are paved, although our site could have been more level. Security is 24 hour and the place is fenced in. Staff is very friendly. The bathhouses are clean and modern, and we were lucky enough to be near a new one consisting of 6 large, private bathrooms equipped with toilet, shower, sink, benches, etc. We stayed here once 4 years ago and enjoyed it even more this second time.

This is a quaint little park that is surprisingly comfortable and friendly. There's a $2 up charge for 50 amp service. No cable service, but they'll give you a Dish receiver and a cable to hook to your TV set. They took about an hour trying to get ours to work before giving up, but there is decent antenna reception of a few channels. Bathhouse is small, rustic, and clean. Staff is exceptionally friendly and helpful. There are a fair number of permanent/seasonal rigs here, but not a problem. Sites are gravel and more or less level. Each has a small concrete patio and picnic table. This is a good spot for an overnight in the Mojave desert.

This is a rustic RV park close to Sequoia National Park. Sites are varied, some gravel, some level, and some concrete. There's decent shade which may impact satellite reception. The cable system is very good and the WiFi is okay. The two bathrooms were flooded for two days, and we were told they were waiting for a part to fix the problem. There's a nice beach on a swimming hole in the river that runs behind the park. There is no Verizon cell service in the park.

This is a spectacular RV resort. The only reason I rate it 9 is that there are no campfire rings and not enough shade in most of the park. All sites are level concrete and extremely wide and long. Very big pool, beautiful landscaping, good cable service, and above average WiFi. Adjacent to shopping and restaurants. Close to the Highway. Staff was very accommodating. Our 5th wheel was brought here by a towing company while our broken truck was being towed to a repair shop. We had been sitting along side the interstate in 100 deg. heat for two hours before the tow arrived. The staff at Durango couldn't have been more sympathetic and helpful.
