Diamond Lake RV Park, Diamond Lake, Oregon

Date of Stay: July, 2014 - $39.00
Overall Rating:

This is a very rustic RV park located in a National Forest. Sites are scattered among pine trees, but the trees are trimmed well enough to not be a problem for big rigs. The bathhouses and showers are modern and spotless. The park may be a bit difficult to find. There's only one sign (at the entrance), Magellan GPS doesn't know that Diamond Lake exists, and the sign for their road, Diamond Lake Loop, is easy to miss. This may be the quietest campground we've been in, and it is convenient for exploring Crater Lake National Park and the forests and mountains in the area. We camped at Diamond Lake RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Portland Fairview RV Park, Fairview, Oregon

Date of Stay: July, 2014 - $39.00
Overall Rating:

This is a fine, large RV park, well-cared for and comfortable. Paved roads and sites, multiple bath houses and a few spas. Some shade but mostly open sites. On the lower level of the park a train track is quite close, but there were no train horns, just the sound of wheels on tracks -- seemingly quite close. Speed bumps are a bit too high in quantity and a bit too high in height. Wi-Fi is okay, but a bit slow. Off-air TV signal OK, cable is analog and some stations were fuzzy. A high percentage of seasonal campers, but everyone seemed friendly. No fire rings, but there are picnic tables at each site. This is a good place to use as a base for visiting the Columbia River Gorge and Portland. We camped at Portland Fairview RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Boardman Marina Park, Boardman, Oregon

Date of Stay: July, 2014 - $27.00
Overall Rating:

This is a gem of a little municipal campground located on the Columbia River. Sites are well spaced, and there's plenty of shade. Sites are roomy and paved, but some are a little bumpy. WiFi is free with a strong signal. Good off-air TV reception. We camped at Boardman Marina Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Hi Valley RV Park, Boise, Idaho

Date of Stay: June, 2014 - $37.00
Overall Rating:

This is a very nice park in a suburban setting so there's good shopping nearby. There are many seasonal guests but plenty of space for overnighters. Roadways are smoothly paved and quite wide. There's a small concrete patio at each site, but no fire pits and no picnic tables. Sites are a bit close together, but I've seen worse. Bathhouse is modern, spacious and clean. Although the park is "family friendly" there is only a very small playground, no pool and no activities for kids. In fact, the entire weekend we were there we saw no children at all. The park is also very quiet, and well-maintained. We camped at Hi Valley RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Craters of the Moon / Arco KOA , Arco, Idaho

Date of Stay: June, 2014 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

This an older but decent KOA close to town and not too far from the national monument. Gravel sites are level, good grassy space between sites. Arco is a town of about 900 people with an interesting history but not a lot of services. There are a couple of gas stations, a couple of restaurants and not much else. We camped at Craters of the Moon / Arco KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Fishing Bridge Campground (Concessionaire Operated), Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming

Date of Stay: June, 2014 - $48.00
Overall Rating:

The best thing I can say about this park is that it is located in Yellowstone NP, one of the most scenic places in the country. It is the only full-service campground in the park. All back in spaces, and if you are travelling with anything larger than a small travel trailer, expect a challenge. The loop roads are quite narrow with trees close to the pavement on the outside of the loops. It took me 45 minutes to get backed in, with no damage, but I could see by the damage to the trees across from our site that others weren't so lucky. The sewer connection is about 8 inches above the ground -- another challenge. The rest rooms are rustic but clean and the showers are in a separate building at the entrance to the park. You'll need to drive, especially after dark since this is bear country. We camped at Fishing Bridge Campground (Concessionaire Operated) in a Fifth Wheel.

7th Ranch RV Camp, Garryowen, Montana

Date of Stay: June, 2014 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

This is an extremely well-maintained RV park with a modern, spotless bathhouse. Sites are terraced on the side of a hill, but reasonably level. Pull-through sites are long and well-graveled. Wi-Fi was weak and intermittent at our site. There is no cable TV and our antenna received just one broadcast channel (Fox). Satellite is the way to go. The views from the park are terrific. This campground is part of a horse ranch, so if you like horses, that's a benefit. There is some noise from passing trains, but not too disturbing. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful, offering information on local attractions and services without being asked. We camped at 7th Ranch RV Camp in a Fifth Wheel.

Red Trail Campground, Medora, North Dakota

Date of Stay: June, 2014 - $31.00
Overall Rating:

At first glance this older, in-town RV park seems a little rough, but is actually a fine park. Restrooms are modern and clean, with good hot water. They charge an extra $1 per day for cable, but it is a full line up including HBO and well worth the buck. The park is convenient to the town's attractions, including the Roosevelt National Park. Sites are a bit close together, but we've seen worse. No campfires permitted due to local regs. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Red Trail Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Governors' RV Park and Campground, Casselton, North Dakota

Date of Stay: June, 2014 - $31.00
Overall Rating:

If anyone wants to invest in an RV park, the Fargo area might be the place to do it. Fargo and environs is in the middle of a growth spurt and the available RV facilities are minimal. Anyway, this "park" is as described previously. It's a gravel parking lot with a little grass between sites. There are bathrooms in the adjacent Laundromat, but you need to go into the hotel for a shower. My wife tells me there is no temperature control on the shower in the family bathroom she used, and she came out par boiled. When she mentioned it to the desk, she was told that only the maintenance guy could adjust the temp. The park is adequate for a night or two. Wifi is very good, no cable but decent over the air TV reception. W/S/E hookups seem to be fine. We camped at Governors' RV Park and Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Minneapolis Northwest KOA, Rogers, Minnesota

Date of Stay: June, 2014 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

This is an older but decent KOA. Very good WiFi, no cable but good reception of Minneapolis stations on air. Sites could use some more gravel, especially when it rains. Bath houses are typical KOA, but in need of a little renovation. Staff is helpful and friendly. Good space between sites, plenty of shade, but no problem with trees as obstacles. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Minneapolis Northwest KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Madison KOA, De Forest, Wisconsin

Date of Stay: June, 2014 - $48.00
Overall Rating:

This is a very nice, well-appointed KOA. Sites are gravel and reasonably level, grounds and areas between sites are well-maintained grass. Bathhouse is modern and spotless. Wi-Fi is decent. No cable, but the antenna picked up a strong signal from all of the Madison stations. Friendly, helpful staff delivers firewood and fire rings to your site. There is some shade, but most sites are open and unshaded. Restaurants and other services are nearby. The only (minor) negative is the proximity to the interstate and some road noise. We camped at Madison KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

South Bend / Elkhart North KOA, Granger, Indiana

Date of Stay: June, 2014 - $48.00
Overall Rating:

We always try to stay at this park when traveling I-80/90 in this part of the country. It is a very nice KOA, clean and well-managed. Lots of tall pine trees, but also lots of room to maneuver big rigs. Sites are roomy and well appointed with picnic tables and fire ring. Park is convenient to shopping and restaurants. The only negative is the nearby and active train tracks with trains apparently run by engineers who just can't keep their hands off the horn button. We camped at South Bend / Elkhart North KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Streetsboro / Cleveland SE KOA, Streetsboro, Ohio

Date of Stay: June, 2014 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

This is a well-appointed, large KOA with long pull-through sites, some shaded and some open to the sky. Bath houses consist of individual, private full baths. Pool was being renovated when we were there, but no discount offered. Wi-Fi worked well, but the cable TV was awful. Channel selection was good, but picture quality on many channels was bad. In fact, we used our antenna to pick up local Cleveland stations which came in very well. Staff was friendly and helpful. There's a balance of seasonal guests and transients, but no issue there. There's a RR track very near the park, and one train horn blew in the middle of the night, and there were a couple of toots in the early morning. We camped at Streetsboro / Cleveland SE KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Medina / Wildwood Lake KOA, Medina, New York

Date of Stay: June, 2014 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

This park is now officially a KOA. It's a large, well-run campground with friendly staff, reasonably level gravel sites, and a small private lake. There are a fair number of friendly seasonal campers here, but lots of open and wooded spaces available for transients. Pull-throughs are long enough to keep towed/tow vehicles hitched, and sites are roomy and well-spaced. Bath houses are small, but there are several scattered throughout the park. Lots of scheduled activities for kids and adults. As mentioned by previous reviewers, there are lots of golf carts running around, but they didn't seem to be a problem. The park is not near the interstate highway, so if you are planning just a quick overnight stop, check the distance from your route before deciding to stay here. We camped at Medina / Wildwood Lake KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

1000 Islands / Association Island KOA , Henderson Harbor, New York

Date of Stay: June, 2014 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

The only reason I didn't rate this park a 10 is that I try to reserve that perfect score for perfection. This campground comes close. This is a newly designated KOA with a long and varied history. Gravel sites are wide and roomy. There's a view of the lake from virtually everywhere. Bath houses are clean and modern. If you are into boating and water sports, this island, with its marina, would be heaven. The few downsides: Cable at our site didn't work -- off air stations were reasonably strong. Wi-Fi was OK, but I used my 4G cellular data service most of the time. Depending on the time of year you are here the bugs and Canada geese can be annoying. But heck, its an island. This is our second visit here, the first was in pre-KOA days, and we would definitely come back again. This is a true destination RV park. We camped at 1000 Islands / Association Island KOA in a Fifth Wheel.
