Wild Duck Campground & RV Park (Adult Only), Scarborough, Maine

Date of Stay: May, 2012 - $42.00
Overall Rating:

This was our second visit to Wild Duck and the only reason I rate it 9 and not 10 is that some of the premium back-in spaces are a bit difficult to get into with a 32 ft. 5th wheel. Other than that, the place is great. It is well-maintained, quiet, mainly because kids aren't permitted. It is bordered by a very scenic marsh, and not too far from grocery shopping, restaurants, Cabela's and other facilties. The gravel sites are reasonably level, and raked after every departure.If you use a Magellen/Good Sam GPS, be forwarned, the directions to Wild Duck linked to the Good Sam POIs are very wrong. If you manually enter the address it will get you right there. We camped at Wild Duck Campground & RV Park (Adult Only) in a Fifth Wheel.

Bay View Campground, Bourne, Massachusetts

Date of Stay: May, 2012 - $49.00
Overall Rating:

We camped here off season, during the week, and the campground was sparsely populated. The staff was friendly and helpful, the gravel/dirt sites seem quite roomy. Some of the features of the place were not open, which made the nightly fee a bit steep. There are quite a few seasonal campers here, and some of the available spaces seemed to be not very level. Our site ran downhill, but leveling our rig wasn't a problem. Oh, don't let the name fool you, there isn't a bay anywhere in view. The location on the western end of Cape Cod is convenient to several of the popular tourist attractions on the cape. Overall, I'd say this is a decent campground, but I don't know how it would be at peak season. We camped at Bay View Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Knoebels Amusement Resort, Elysburg, Pennsylvania

Date of Stay: August, 2011 - $41.00
Overall Rating:

This large campground is adjacent to Knoebels Amusement Park, which is a family-friendly old style amusement park, with no admission charge, and reasonable prices for rides and food. The campground has electric hookups only, but there are several water fill spots at the entrance, and a few dump stations on the property. The campground is wooded, some sites may present leveling issues, and the trees may present issues for larger rigs. There is frequent shuttle service to the amusement park, although it isn't too far to walk. Restrooms are rustic, but adequate. Reservations are a must, especially on weekends. The fee is high, considering minimum hookups, no cable and no antenna access, but how many campgrounds provide a really cool amusement park on the premises? We camped at Knoebels Amusement Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

South Bend / Elkhart North KOA, Granger, Indiana

Date of Stay: August, 2011 - $48.00
Overall Rating:

I guess there is truth to the old adage that you can please some of the people some of the time but not all of the people all of the time. I don't get reviewers complaints about the size of the sites. We have a 32 ft fifth wheel. This was our second time in this KOA. Yes there are trees. Trees make shade, and provide a woodsy atmosphere. Since there are trees you need to be a bit careful driving through, but the sites are certainly bigger than some I've been in. There was also room to park the truck. My only complaint is the nearby RxR and the sound of the trains. This is a lovely, well-run KOA, with sparkling clean restrooms, and helpful, friendly management. Yes, there are lots of KOA's with no trees at all. Given a choice, I'll always go for the trees. We camped at South Bend / Elkhart North KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Willoaks Campground, Woodstock, Illinois

Date of Stay: August, 2011 - $33.00
Overall Rating:

This is a funky little campground set well off the road on a family farm. The pull through sites look like back in sites at first glance, but the idea is to pull in and face a large lawn area which is used to pull out. Staff is very friendly, the park is quiet, with a fair proportion of seasonal campers. There is a swimming/fishing pond, table and fire ring at each site, and decent room between sites. Wi-Fi works well, but there is a $2 daily fee for Wi-Fi. The park is close enough to Chicago for antenna TV reception. Some of the overnight sites may require a bit of work to level your rig, but I've seen worse. We would stay here again. We camped at Willoaks Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Prairie Flower Recreation Area COE, Johnston, Iowa

Date of Stay: August, 2011 - $16.00
Overall Rating:

I'm not a big fan of the Corps of Engineers, but this park is something they've done right. Spacious, level, concrete pads, paved interior roads, lots of space between sites, and enough trees for shade but not so many they get in the way. Electrical service only, but water faucets are scattered throughout. There's an easily accessible dump station. Good antenna TV reception from Des Moines. The rate we paid was due to the Senior Pass. We camped at Prairie Flower Recreation Area COE in a Fifth Wheel.

Grand Island KOA, Doniphan, Nebraska

Date of Stay: August, 2011 - $38.00
Overall Rating:

We were originally planning to make this an overnight stop but extended two nights. Park is in the middle of a cornfield, but I didn't look to see if there was a baseball field built on the other side. Some sites are narrow, but I've seen worse. Our site was perfectly level. Although close to I-80, the corn seems to dampen the highway noise, at least this time of year. Nice pool and spa. Wi-Fi didn't work at all for a couple of days, but it started working on our third day. No services nearby, but virtually no traffic to get to them about 10 miles away. Some interesting historical sites in the area, but a bit of a drive to see them. Office makes hot pizza every day($$) and delivers to your site. We would stay here again. We camped at Grand Island KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Rock Springs / Green River KOA, Rock Springs, Wyoming

Date of Stay: August, 2011 - $38.00
Overall Rating:

Although close to I-80 there wasn't too much highway noise at night. This park is in the high desert, and looks like it. It's all gravel, but the pull-through spaces are quite long and wide enough for slides. Awnings aren't recommended due to desert winds. This is a good place to use as a base to explore Flaming Gorge, the most scenic parts of which are 45 miles south on the Utah side of the border. The wild horse self guided tour is near by, and the BLM mustang depot is close as well. This is our second time here, and we would return if in the area. We camped at Rock Springs / Green River KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Headwaters Lodge & Cabins at Flagg Ranch (formerly Flagg Ranch Resort), Moran, Wyoming

Date of Stay: August, 2011 - $64.00
Overall Rating:

This is the second time we've stayed at Flagg Ranch and it hasn't changed at all in 3 years. This is a very rustic campground in the national forest between Grand Teton National Park and Yellowstone NP. It is exactly 60 miles north of Jackson, WY. The campground is heavily wooded, and wildlife (including bears) sometimes wander through the park. The biggest downside, aside from the exorbitant price, which is typical for the area, is the 20amp electrical service. It fluctuates between 108 and 118 volts. If you are prepared for the cost and the iffy power, it's a decent place to stay while exploring the two wonderful national parks. We camped at Headwaters Lodge & Cabins at Flagg Ranch (formerly Flagg Ranch Resort) in a Fifth Wheel.

Snake River RV Park & Campground, Idaho Falls, Idaho

Date of Stay: August, 2011 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

This is a very pleasant and quiet campground with reasonably level shaded sites. Staff provides free coffee in the store, and $2.50 pancake breakfast every morning. There's a pool and spa, and a playground. Park is a short drive to all services and stores, but being in an industrial area, there is some traffic noise, but it isn't a problem. Wi-Fi is free and good. No cable TV but good reception on the antenna (digital). We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Snake River RV Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Deer Lodge KOA, Deer Lodge, Montana

Date of Stay: July, 2011 - $32.00
Overall Rating:

This is a small, in-town campground, not quite up to KOA standards, but not bad. It has 4 individual, coed, full bath restrooms, which were clean, the staff is friendly and helpful. The sites are a bit close together, but we've seen worse. Deer Lodge has a lot to offer for a very small town. The Grant-Kohrs Ranch National Historic Site is worth visiting, as is the Old Montana State Prison and attached museums. We would camp here again. We camped at Deer Lodge KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Alderwood RV Express, Mead, Washington

Date of Stay: July, 2011 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

The only negative about this park is the narrow sites. All sites are paved with nice patios, but they are too narrow for both slides and awnings on large rigs. Nicely landscaped, nice indoor pool, very good Wi-Fi and cable. Clean modern restrooms and showers. The park is convenient to Coer d'Alene, ID as well as Spokane. Good shopping nearby. If you are here during the summer, be sure to get to Green Bluff Road for the cherry farms, especially if you like Rainier Cherries. We camped at Alderwood RV Express in a Fifth Wheel.

Sunrise Resorts-Pier Four, Moses Lake, Washington

Date of Stay: July, 2011 - $42.00
Overall Rating:

This is a very nice RV park offering a host of water activities on Moses Lake. The park appears to be divided into two sections. The newer section offers wide paved roadways and paved pads with grass in between. The sites are a bit close together, but not as close as in some other parks. This section is open with no shade trees. The older section, which is closer to the lake, is largely gravel with many large shade trees. The park is quite close to I-90 and there is some noise from the highway, but we didn't find it disturbing. There is a fee for Wi-Fi, which worked well, and the cable TV was fine. We camped at Sunrise Resorts-Pier Four in a Fifth Wheel.

Alder Lake Park, Eatonville, Washington

Date of Stay: July, 2011 - $28.00
Overall Rating:

Alder Lake Park is on a beautiful lake in a densely wooded area of Washington. All sorts of water sports are available, and the park is an easy drive to Mt. Rainier National Park. Mt. Rainier itself is visible (on clear days) over the lake from the marina area. The campground is well-maintained, with tables and fire rings at each site, but has limitations for larger RVs. The pull-through sites are the crescent type, and some are shorter than others, and some have large trees making maneuvering large rigs problematic. Also, many of the pull-through sites as well as back-ins are not level. It took us almost an hour to get our 32ft. Fifth wheel into position so it could be leveled with the many blocks and ramps I carry. I saw several class C motorhomes sitting with their front wheels up on piles a boards to get level. This park is a very popular weekend getaway, so reservations are a must on weekends. There is a very good online reservation service available. We camped at Alder Lake Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Maple Grove RV Resort, Everett, Washington

Date of Stay: July, 2011 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

This is a decent urban park, meaning the spaces and roadways are quite tight. The facilities and restrooms are spotlessly clean, the roadways are paved and the sites are concrete. Since the park is on a hill, some of the sites, particularly those at the bottom, are not level. To help compensate, the park recently provided wooden leveling ramps to run up on the low side to help level rigs. These are helpful, but not perfect. The park is surprisingly quiet for an urban park. The sites are quite narrow. We were able to park our tow vehicle next to the fifth wheel, but the passenger side door couldn't be opened. There are no picnic tables and no fire rings. The park is convenient to shopping and the Boeing Future of Flight Tour, and the staff is helpful and friendly. We camped at Maple Grove RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
