May's Cafe Motel and RV Park, Cornudas, Texas

Date of Stay: January, 2017 - $28.00
Overall Rating:      

This isn't in El Paso, it is an hour east but RV Park Reviews does not recognize Cornudas, so I picked the closest city it knows. It is an OK place for a stop over if you are heading either east or west through Texas if you want to avoid the craziness of I-10 around El Paso. Going west to Las Cruces you can go due north from Sierra Blanca and it will take you to Cornudas which is on 180/62. Or you can get on this highway north of El Paso from 375 if you are going east. The park is right on the highway so could not ask for easier access. Not much highway noise because very few vehicles. Site is level, hookups convenient and the wifi excellent. No cell phone service for any carrier. The water at the site is not potable but they will give you drinking water in the cafe. I was told I would be able to drink the water with the filters I have on my RV but did not try as I had water in my holding tank. There was no one else in the park when I was there--no permanent residents. We camped at May's Cafe Motel and RV Park in a Motorhome.

The real draw is May's cafe. It has its "famous" Cornudas burger and if you wish to forego the meat as I did, you can get it with a black bean burger. They also have good breakfasts. You could call this place the "Bagdad Cafe" of west Texas. It is run down in a charming and funky way--a fun place to stop. Make sure wherever you are coming from that you fill up with gas--there is no gas to be had anywhere near.

Quiet Texas R.V. Park, D'Hanis, Texas

Date of Stay: December, 2016 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

OK park for an overnight stay: overpriced even with PA for what you get. Easy access from the highway, site was level, utilities in good shape and easy to access but laid out for a trailer. Had to disconnect my tow and back up the rig to reach, and then the neighbor's sewer house was right outside my door. The site is long enough that I did not need to pull the rig ahead to hook up the tow. Additionally the sites are laid out in the wrong direction in relation to the utilities. So rather than just drive right in, you have to make a sharp turn. Whoops. Wifi is very good. A couple long term folks with clutter around their units. The park host said she is working on getting them to clean it up. Most of the sites are tidy enough. I would hardly call it "quiet" as the train runs two streets down late into the night. Might bother some. As noted, a good spot to stop for an overnight. We camped at Quiet Texas R.V. Park in a Motorhome.

Braunig Lake RV Resort, Elmendorf, Texas

Date of Stay: December, 2016 - $23.00
Overall Rating:      

Rate here reflects weekly stay. Well maintained, attractive park with plenty of friendly staff on hand to assist, at any hour. I will make one caveat. My space had the front end of the concrete slab cracked and sloping down: enough that I had to use my levelers. I don't have hydraulic so it is a pain, and I was still at somewhat of a forward slope. I am surprised they were offering the site.

The park is easy to access from the highway, the utilities in excellent condition and easy to access. Sites are spacious with their own patio and picnic table. Laundry room was clean: $1.25 to wash, $1.00 to dry. Park Wifi was iffy: it either worked well or not at all. Verizon worked well. There was some highway noise as 37 runs right by it and the train whistle could be heard, but far enough away that it was not intrusive.

This was a good park to spend a week and quick and easy access to the sites of San Antonio. We camped at Braunig Lake RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Take out pizza right across the street: very good. Valero gas and 7-eleven and hamburger stand just down the street. As noted, easy access to the sites of San Antonio: about fifteen minutes depending on traffic. And on the way, all the shopping you could want, and more. The malls go on and on.

Angels in Goliad RV Park, Goliad, Texas

Date of Stay: December, 2016 - $15.00
Overall Rating:      

Very basic park but it is right off 59, the sites are spacious and level and utilities are easy to access. Wifi works well enough. There are two routers and I had to jump from one to the other at times to stay connected. My only complaint is that the ground outside my unit was covered in stickers which meant I had to carry my dog to the interior road to walk him--but I guess stickers are to be expected in this part of the country. We camped at Angels in Goliad RV Park in a Motorhome.

OceanSide RV Park, Port Lavaca, Texas

Date of Stay: December, 2016 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

Rate reflects Passport America which requires one night at full price and two nights at the PA rate. There is an extra charge for using the sewer. This is an older park which is run down but in the process of improvements. In the meantime it is a place to park your rig while you enjoy the beach which is right across the road. I was able to see the gulf from my window. Easy in and out of the park, site was level enough and utilities easy to access. Park wifi was good as was my Verizon. Sites are very close together but the host says the owner will be putting in new sites next to the current park this summer that will be spacious--so should be really nice in a year or two. But worth the visit even now to enjoy the beautiful beach. We camped at OceanSide RV Park in a Motorhome.

Visit the museum in Port Lavaca and then come back and visit all the markers and memorials of the bustling town that was there and then taken away by hurricanes. There is a cafe down the road but I did not visit it so cannot recommend but the host told me it is a good place to have a fish dinner. There are shelters with picnic tables all along the beach. Some RVers were dry docking there when I visited. there are nice boardwalks that go out into the water which are great for wildlife viewing.

Quintana Beach County Park, Quintana, Texas

Date of Stay: November, 2016 - $15.00
Overall Rating:      

Yes, there were mosquitoes but not bad. Another guest told me the place had been sprayed and the critters were much reduced. I suppose being there in November would make a difference as well. In any case, repellent before you go outside would be helpful. All that being said, I absolutely loved this park. Stayed for about a week and would have liked to stay longer. It is easy access from the highway, the sites are spacious and level and utilities easy to access. Park Wifi was good as was my Verizon. Would note that the sewer was in the wrong spot for a motor home with a towed vehicle--unless you disconnect right away. I waited until I was ready to leave to position my rig to reach the sewer and dump. Only complaint was the view from the campground itself--Freeport LNG plant is right next door and in addition to the ghastly structures, they have bright lights on all night. The lights did not affect my spot but they were an eyesore going outside at night.

A nice walk on the boardwalk to the beach which was pristine--relatively speaking--and nary another soul could be seen--November seems to be a good time to be there. Take along a plastic bag (they are provided at the park office if you wish) and pick up the small pieces of plastic and Styrofoam that wash up on the beach--you just might save some wildlife. We camped at Quintana Beach County Park in a Motorhome.

Port Arthur RV Resort, Port Arthur, Texas

Date of Stay: November, 2016 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

Right off the highway so easy access. Attractive and well laid out with long concreted pads. Sites are level, utilities easy to access and wifi was good. I was parked two rows from the road and the highway noise, particularly when people were going to and from work, was distracting. Perhaps a site further back would be quieter. Large clean laundry room and clean restroom there--did not use the ones at the bath house but will assume they are equally well maintained. I gave a rating of "excellent" with reservation only because of the highway noise. Otherwise, this is a very nice park with the needs of the RVer in mind.

Bolivar Peninsula RV Park, Crystal Beach, Texas

Date of Stay: November, 2016 - $16.00
Overall Rating:      

Pleasant park but for the highway noise if you are in one of the pull throughs right next to the highway. If you are parked towards the back in the back ins you might avoid that. Of course, being on the highway made for no fuss access. The site was very easy to get to, level, utilities were easy to access and the wifi was good most of the time. The trash dumpster was left uncovered and attracted flies--you don't want a site near the dumpster. Beach is across the street and down a bit--easy walk.

Crawfish Haven RV Park, Kaplan, Louisiana

Date of Stay: November, 2016 - $28.00
Overall Rating:      

The park looks somewhat of a mess.The first thing you see when you pull in is a houseboat --in the park. And it is surrounded by detritus and equipment. In all fairness to the park owner, he told me he is cleaning up after recent floods. The park is right off the highway. My site was easy to back into, it was level enough and hookups were easy to access. It is quiet except for the duck hunters' guns I heard in the morning. Certainly a fine stopover if you are traveling east/west and want to avoid I-10. We camped at Crawfish Haven RV Park in a Motorhome.

Capri Court Campground, Houma, Louisiana

Date of Stay: November, 2016 - $15.00
Overall Rating:      

The RV park, as noted by others, is about a quarter of a mile in the back of the mobile home park which looks like barracks stretched out on each side of the road. The RV park however, looks nothing like the mobile home area. It is filled with trees with moss hanging down and it is a loop situated along a river with a boat ramp. The sites are spacious but the roads seem tight for a large unit --mine is only 24 ft--but I did see big rigs in there. Only plugged in and would have had a problem if I needed the sewer as it was on the wrong end. There are burls that apparently are part of the root system of the trees--they made walking around the campsite a bit tricky--had to pay attention. It was very quiet and pleasant--a good place to stop on my way to the bayou after leaving New Orleans. We camped at Capri Court Campground in a Motorhome.

Three Oaks and a Pine, New Orleans, Louisiana

Date of Stay: November, 2016 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

The RV parks for New Orleans are in a wretched neighborhood and this is among them. As I drove by the others on my way to the French Quarter, they all seemed pretty much the same: basic place to park while you take in the city--the park is not the destination, New Orleans is. This park has full hookups, all back in and easy to maneuver. I needed levelers at my spot. There is at least one staff person at the front area under the gazebo at all times; there is a gate that locks when the sun goes down and guests are given a pass code. In addition, there is a bell that goes off whenever anyone goes in or out. The park felt very secure in spite of the rough neighborhood. There is a motel next door and one night briefly I heard commotion and there is some motorcycle group that rides up and down the street in front of the park every day: annoying. There are the trains in the back but they are not particularly noisy: more like ambient noise, at least towards the front, where I was. Has a clean laundry room. I stayed 12 days and enjoyed all of them in spite of the noise: but this is New Orleans. We camped at Three Oaks and a Pine in a Motorhome.

Not far at all from the French Quarter. I found driving the surface streets there less crazy than taking I-10, but that is not saying much. The drivers there are maniacs. Also not far from the park, there is a lovely promenade and picnic area at Lake Pontchartrain on the way to the University of New Orleans.

Okatoma Resort & RV Park, Hattiesburg, Mississippi

Date of Stay: November, 2016 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

Older park way back off the highway, with what appears to be many permanent residents who work in the area. The sites are very close together and some are a bit trashy looking--not cleaning up around their site. The few pull through sites are just in the middle of a field next to the bath house. Certainly satisfactory if you are there for an overnight. The sites are reasonably level and hookups convenient. No wifi except at the office but my Verizon worked well. Some of the back in sites surround the lake which is really just a large pond. It is populated with ducks which make a nice ambience for an otherwise unremarkable park. The grounds is a mix of grass, gravel and fine dirt. I can only imagine what it must be like when it rains--the inner roads and some sites must be a muddy mess. I would not stay if it has been raining or if rain is forecast. Otherwise a good enough park for an overnight or visiting the Hattiesburg area. Park management folks are very personable, professional, and accommodating. My rate included two days at PA and one day at regular rate. We camped at Okatoma Resort & RV Park in a Motorhome.

Sites are extremely spacious with picnic table and bbq grill and a large, level concrete pad. Park staff is there regular business hours seven days a week and reservoir security lives on the site. Has excellent wifi. It has a swimming pool (which was closed for maintenance while I was there). The park is very nicely landscaped and well maintained.

The sign to the park faces straight out to the road so it is easy to miss until you are right on top of it. If you are coming across the reservoir bridge it is on the left just past what looks like a service station. It is about thirty minutes to Jackson and a beautiful drive around the reservoir to the north along the Natchez Trace.

Rebel RV Park, Sardis, Mississippi

Date of Stay: October, 2016 - $28.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a new park so at the moment it is like a gravel parking lot--there has been a lot of landscaping but of course all the new trees and shrubs are small--therefore, no shade. Don't be fooled by the photo on their web site--the sites are not grass and trees. The roads inside are easy enough to access but there are no directional markers so it can be a bit confusing. There was no one in the office when I arrived and I was on my own trying to find a spot. No hassle though. The site was level, had full hookups that were easy to access. The wifi is free and outstanding--and I was parked way in the back--not near the office. Only complaint is that the sites are very close together, but not a big deal for a brief stay. I assume because the park is relatively new, my GPS had no clue where it is. It is on Hwy 6 going towards Oxford after Batesville. About eight miles or so down the road (don't quote me) from the interchange is a large billboard sign --keep an eye out--on the right--cannot miss it. For eye appeal I would have grudgingly given this place just an average rating but because the sites are level --and so important for those of us without hydraulic levelers--and the utilities are in great condition--not to mention the great wifi, I am giving it extra points. Good option if you want to visit Oxford. We camped at Rebel RV Park in a Motorhome.

T. O. Fuller State Park, Memphis, Tennessee

Date of Stay: October, 2016 - $22.00
Overall Rating:      

An overall pleasant park close in South Memphis. Easy access from freeway and roads inside are easy to navigate for even large rigs. There are both back in and pull through sites. Park is well maintained. Trash cans are convenient and emptied regularly. There is recycling for plastic and aluminum at the bath house. Water and electric are easy to access. Type of water spigots that cannot be set on a low pressure so do not plan on filling your tank with fresh water before you leave. No wifi but my Verizon worked but probably only because I have a booster because it only got one bar. Ranger and park host are on site at all times. Host is always busy around the park making sure things are running smoothly. Only complaint was on my third night there were planes going overhead what seemed like every ten minutes during the night until 1 in the morning. I have no explanation. There is no shopping nearby but across the border in Mississippi in Southhaven is all you could want or need. We camped at T. O. Fuller State Park in a Motorhome.

Nicer drive into Memphis by going west along Mitchell Rd to Riverfront. For great breakfast or lunch try the Blue Plate Cafe downtown. Great southern cooking in a pleasant atmosphere at reasonable prices. Great vegetable plate for vegetarians. The Sun Studio tour is fun as is the Stax Museum. Then there is the Lorraine Motel with the Civil Rights Museum. There is a reasonably priced riverboat tour along the Memphis waterfront. There is also a new pedestrian/rail/bicycle bridge across the river.
