Pioneer Beach Resort, Port Aransas, Texas

Date of Stay: April, 2018 - $44.00
Overall Rating:

Rate reflects a weekly rate, plus electricity. This is my first stay in Port Aransas since Hurricane Harvey. Despite other areas of the town that have yet to be restored, I must say that Pioneer has done a miraculous job of putting the park back together. I agree with others who have observed that the premium pull-thru sites may require some extra maneuvering for larger motorhomes. However, since I am going disconnect my tow car, anyway, it's not a problem. Office staff and grounds folks are very friendly and professional. This is a well-run park. Boardwalk to the beach makes it easy to get there without driving. Daily trash pickup, two swimming pools and a hot tub help make for a pleasant stay. We camped at Pioneer Beach Resort in a Motorhome.

Buckhorn Lake Resort, Kerrville, Texas

Date of Stay: March, 2018 - $39.00
Overall Rating:

I was able to get the last available site for a 1-night stopover during Spring Break. This is a well laid out, professionally run park. Concrete sites are level; and roads are paved and easy to maneuver. For me, there was minimal highway noise off I10. Although the park was full, it was very quiet. We camped at Buckhorn Lake Resort in a Motorhome.

B.J.'s RV Park, Terlingua, Texas

Date of Stay: February, 2018 - $17.00
Overall Rating:

This is a follow-up on my previous November stay. Rate is based on monthly charge of $500, including utilities. I was able to spend about 3 1/2 weeks here during January and February. I enjoyed its convenient location, level site, perfect site orientation, friendly neighbors and one of the nicest camp hosts I've ever encountered at an RV park. As a frequent visitor to the Big Bend over the past 40+ years, I'm not interested in golf courses, zip lines or resort-level pricing. Bj's excels in what is important to me, at a competitive price point. Accordingly, I booked a site for 2019, based on a great experience. We camped at B.J.'s RV Park in a Motorhome.

Lots to do and see in this beautiful part of Texas. Nearby Big Bend National Park offers great opportunity for hiking and scenic drives. Several restaurants close by, including Starlight, LaKiva and the Long Draw Pizza. Extensive grocery selection at competitive pricing can be found at nearby Cottonwood Market in Study Butte. Stop by the Quilt Shop and visit with Marguerite... a Big Bend treasure.

B.J.'s RV Park, Terlingua, Texas

Date of Stay: November, 2017 - $32.00
Overall Rating:

I spent 4 nights here while scouting parks for a longer winter stay after I was informed by the park I've been staying at in the area for the past 4 winters it was raising their monthly rates by 50% in just one year! This park is a real gem. It is small and short on some amenities, but excels on what I consider to be the basics: level site, well-placed functioning hook-ups, excellent WiFi and proper site orientation for the sun. Add to this a very friendly, and professional, manager and a more convenient location for my activities, I now understand why it is rated so high by many customers. Needless to stay, I thoroughly enjoyed my short stay and look forward to returning in January, when I can enjoy their more competitive monthly rates. We camped at B.J.'s RV Park in a Motorhome.

Mountain View RV Park, Van Horn, Texas

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $37.00
Overall Rating:

For a convenient overnight stopover along I10, this park is a great option. Sites are level, long pull-throughs, with nothing to block satellite access. The park also provides plenty of maneuvering room. The included analog cable TV is acceptable. I did not use the WiFi. Hook-ups were well-placed. Nothing fancy. Just a good place to stop for the night. We camped at Mountain View RV Park in a Motorhome.

Salt Lake City KOA, Salt Lake City, Utah

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $64.00
Overall Rating:

This was a 1-night stopover for me that resulted from re-routing my trip from West Yellowstone due to weather. This is obviously an older KOA from an era of smaller RVs. The roads are very narrow. Even though I paid a premium price for a pull-thru site, I was unable to get to it without disconnecting my tow vehicle. (What's the point of a pull-thru if one has to disconnect to get to it?) I also had issues with the office. Since I had no reservation, their "default" was to place me in a "premium" site, which featured an umbrella under the shade trees that ended up blocking my satellite dish, while I noticed vacant "regular" sites that would have been just as good for one night. The route to my site (recommended by the office) required disconnecting my tow car. I was offered no escort to my site, which most KOAs do. And, when I asked if I could apply some of my KOA Value Points to reduce the cost of the site, I was told, "Sorry, it's too late; we've already processed your payment." Overall, my experience was far short of KOA standards and at a price higher than I've ever paid at a KOA-- lesson learned about this place! We camped at Salt Lake City KOA in a Motorhome.

Yellowstone Grizzly RV Park, West Yellowstone, Montana

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $73.00
Overall Rating:

Based on my experience I would rate this as one the most organized and professionally managed RV parks I've ever stayed at. Since I was a first-time customer when I called to make reservations for 5 nights, I had no visual picture of the sites. When I arrived, I initially had difficulty with my standard pull-thru site. It was narrow and the trees on both sides made it difficult to extend my slides and use my rooftop satellite dish. When I brought this to their attention, they were able to "juggle" things, so I could spent my last 3 nights in a larger back-in site at the same price that was absolutely perfect for me. Unfortunately, the unpredictable Fall weather brought snow and I ended up leaving a day early, and they cheerfully refunded my last night. Even though my first site had issues for me, I'm still giving the park a "10" for their eagerness to make things right for me. We camped at Yellowstone Grizzly RV Park in a Motorhome.

Vernal / Dinosaurland KOA, Vernal, Utah

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $44.00
Overall Rating:

This park worked a great as a "home base" while doing day trips to Dinosaur National Monument and Flaming Gorge NRA. Site was a bit narrow for slide-outs, but I was able to fit. I did not use the park's WiFi, so cannot comment. My satellite dish worked fine and I was able to get several local broadcast channels with my antenna. Staff was very friendly and helpful. My only complaint was the main road through the park, which doubles as an access road to mobile homes behind the park and added to traffic (not obeying the speed limit) near my site. We camped at Vernal / Dinosaurland KOA in a Motorhome.

Monument RV Resort, Fruita, Colorado

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $42.00
Overall Rating:

For those wanting to visit Colorado National Monument, this park is a great choice due to its convenient location. Staff was very friendly and helpful. As I needed a minor repair on my motorhome, I was grateful that they recommended a mobile RV service that took care of my issue in short order. Park WiFi was a little weak, as was my Verizon & AT&T phone service; but was not a major factor, as I spent most of my time away from the park. Clear sky for my rooftop satellite dish.

Thousand Lakes RV Park, Torrey, Utah

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

Very pleasant stay at the west end of Torrey. My site afforded me some beautiful views of red rocks and beautiful sunsets. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Nice gift shop and on-site restaurant. Availability of over-the-air TV stations from Salt Lake City complemented my DISH satellite service. Convenient location for exploring Capitol Reef National Park. Only negative for me was the wind, which seemed relentless every night (obviously not the park's fault). We camped at Thousand Lakes RV Park in a Motorhome.

Border Inn RV Park, Baker, Nevada

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

While the Great Basin National Park area provides many camping options, they diminish quickly when one is in a large RV. Consequently, the Border Inn provided a good option for me. While it is basically a large gravel area out in the open, my site was level and had great hookups. Another bonus was plenty of open maneuvering room for my motorhome and tow car. Not much else in the way of amenities, but I spent most of my time in the beautiful national park. I did not eat at the adjoining restaurant or entertain myself at the small casino. We camped at Border Inn RV Park in a Motorhome.

Grand Basin National Park is a real gem. It is a quiet park with plenty of varied scenery, great hiking trails and the beautiful drive up to Mt. Wheeler. The rangers are very helpful and enthusiastic about the park. The evening astronomy programs were incredibly interesting and well-presented. The small, nearby town of Baker is quite quaint and home to Kerouac's Restaurant, which has great food and an impressive full bar.

San Juan County Fairgrounds (McGee Park), Farmington, New Mexico

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

This makes a nice stopover, particularly if there isn't an event going on at the fairgrounds. It is basically several asphalt parking lots with water & electric hookups along the perimeters. Most are 30 amp, but some 50 amp. My site was reasonably level. The park provides 24-hour security and the staff makes check-in very easy. I have stayed here in the past when the rate was only $20, which to me would still represent a better value. We camped at San Juan County Fairgrounds (McGee Park) in a Motorhome.

Port A RV Resort, Port Aransas, Texas

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $39.00
Overall Rating:

This was my first stay at this new RV park. Rate reflects weekly rate (plus utilities). Plusses for me included the ability to select my site on their web site and secure it online. This allowed me to secure a site that gave me morning sun and afternoon shade on my patio side. Because it is new, the restrooms and other facilities are very nice. Although this park is on the wrong side of the street to have beach access, getting to the beach is only a short drive. Staff was extremely friendly and onsite trash pickup was a nice bonus. About the only negative I could come up with are the narrow roads and lack of a "check-in" area that allows one to unhook their tow car without blocking traffic. As a frequent visitor to Port Aransas, I would definitely consider staying here again. We camped at Port A RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Lakeview RV Resort, Houston, Texas

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $60.00
Overall Rating:

Unlike many of the other reviewers, my experience at this park was less than stellar. It is called an RV "resort," but I did not feel it was anything more than a simple RV "park." Upon my arrival, the first order of business was signing my life away to all their silly rules. Next, I was given a map to my site, but no offer to escort me. Upon arriving at my back-in site, it was evident that there was no way I could get into it because several tow cars were parked in the roadway. (It was not because they were illegally parked - rather, it was because the park chooses to place RVs in sites too small to accommodate the RV and tow vehicle within the confines of the site.) Fortunately, one of my "neighbors" stepped outside and offered to temporarily move their car. They also suggested I knock on the door of another neighbor to move his car, just so I could get into my site. I would like to point out that in more than 10 years of RV travel, I have NEVER had to ask anyone to move their vehicle to get into my site. As someone who values privacy, I found this a totally unacceptable practice. Once in my site, I stopped by the office to let them know how difficult it was to get into it. The response by one of the personnel was, "well, we've had difficulty ourselves." Evaluating my total experience with this park, it became readily apparent that it is totally set up to make easy to manage, rather than easy on the customers. Examples include lack of trash pick-up and only one remote area for trash, one set of restrooms located near the rather remote office, etc., etc. The icing on the cake was when I "checked out," and the best they could offer was, "you're good to go." No "thank you" for staying here, "hope you had a pleasant stay," nothing. (I felt like I had just been given a release from prison.) Given the $60.00 per night rate, I would have hoped for better - lesson learned! We camped at Lakeview RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Mesa Verde RV Park, Wolfforth, Texas

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $32.00
Overall Rating:

I spent one night here while passing through the Lubbock area. My gravel site was large enough and level. However, upon leaving the next morning I was just barely able to make the turn out of my site without my tow car catching a nearby sign. (In retrospect, I probably should have waited to hook up the car after I was out of the site.) Not much else to say, other than overall the park was satisfactory for my short stay.
