Campground by the Lake, South Lake Tahoe, California

Date of Stay: June, 2010 - $31.00
Overall Rating:

The access road to the B loop was very tight due to numerous trees along the road. The B loop has electricity in each site and water faucets for roughly every three sites. The camp ground staff asks you not to hook up to the water faucets. The A loop has water and electricity in each site. This loop is much more big rig friendly. All of the rest of the loops have no hook ups. There is a dump station available when leaving that is free to campers. Our site was flat and level. The site was a combination of dirt and fine rock. A mat kept the inside of the trailer clean. The site was so flat I did not have to level side to side. The site had a picnic table, BBQ and fire pit. There was a good combination of sun and shade. It was very windy the last two days. The tops of the trees were really blowing but the camp ground had minimal wind. The Wi-Fi worked well at our site. AT&T cell phone service worked well. We were only able to get three TV channels using an antenna. The bathrooms were old but clean. Lake Tahoe was across the street from the camp ground and two traffic signals provided easy access to the lake. There was a nice dog walk / bike path that provided good walking and site seeing travel. All in all, this is an old camp ground with a good location that is staffed by friendly camp hosts. I would stay here again. We camped at Campground by the Lake in a Travel Trailer.

Collins Lake Recreation Area, Browns Valley, California

Date of Stay: June, 2010 - $49.00

We stayed here for 5 nights in a 30 footer. We were on a package deal that included 5 days of boat use and 5 days use of a Marina slip. The entrance to the park is well marked and the roads are a combination of asphalt and gravel. I chose a Lakefront site that had water and electricity. The site was packed gravel. There was a good combination of sun and shade. I needed one 1/2 inch board to level the trailer side to side. The park offers pump out on site or they have a free dump station for campers with three stations when leaving the park. The staff is extremely friendly. The staff hustles to be sure every concern is taken care of. The park is clean and well maintained. There are two shower buildings that were constantly cleaned. Most of the bathrooms are vault toilets, but they were cleaned regularly and had no unpleasant smell. Prices are based on days of the week and whether the site is lake side or standard site. Check out the Collins Lake web site for site locations and pictures of the sites. Our site over looked the marina and was about 30 feet from the lake. We were given a map and excellent directions to our site. However when leaving, the roads to the exit were confusing and to avoid taking the trailer into a dead end, or up a steep gravel road, I had to walk to route to the exit to avoid any backing issues. The campground is very family and dog friendly. Most people are here to either fish or to take part in some type of boat activity. Very nice campground to visit. I will definitely keep returning. We camped at Collins Lake Recreation Area in a Travel Trailer.

Little Bear RV Park, Blairsden, California

Date of Stay: May, 2010 - $32.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed here for 4 days with our camping club. We have a 30 foot travel trailer pulled by a 20 foot truck. Park has paved roads and large sites. The manager had to lead us in, the wrong way down road to fit into site. Because of trees, it was awkward to back into, but the staff made the process as easy as possible. Definitely need spotters to back into most sites. The site was gravel and we had to level 2 inches side to side. That being said, the site was extremely large and had a good combination of sun and shade. The owner and his staff were very friendly and helpful. He made the club house available to us for our meals and meeting. It snowed for 3 of the 4 days we camped. They had the pellet stove in the club house roaring before we entered so the room was warm and toasty. Ran out of propane due to heater use. Staff came to trailer, picked up the propane tank, filled the tank and returned it. Park was beautiful and very well maintained. The lawns looked like golf course quality. I didn't like the "keep the pets off the grass" signs, but once I found the pet area, I had no problem with the rule. The pet walk is a large grass area that the dogs can be off-leash if they are under voice control. Wireless Wi-Fi was hit or miss at our site. At the club house the connection was fast. The only phone carrier that worked in the park was AT&T. I would definitely return to this park. We camped at Little Bear RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Bodega Bay RV Park, Bodega Bay, California

Date of Stay: March, 2010 - $41.00
Overall Rating:

Very poorly marked entrance. The sign comes up and you see a restaurant. The park is off to your left. Price is a club rate. We stayed for 4 days. Management staff was very friendly and provided lots of literature about attractions in Sonoma County. Site was gravel and flat. No need to level. Cable TV had over 35 channels. Free Wi-Fi worked the first two days and was intermittent on Saturday and Sunday. We played at the Park's Bocce Ball Court. The Court was in good shape for a public court. The dog run was adequate. You could walk your dog through the state park next door as long as you kept the dog on a leash and stayed on the roads. (All of Sonoma County appears to have a mandatory leash policy with no dogs allowed on any public beaches.) It was necessary to drive to attractions but the road was good and site seeing was close. We used Clubhouse #1 for a Club dinner and breakfast. Chairs and tables were first rate and the club house was immaculate. I liked the park and will definitely return. We camped at Bodega Bay RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Los Banos West / I-5 KOA , Santa Nella, California

Date of Stay: February, 2010 - $24.00
Overall Rating:

Needed a place for one night with electricity. Older park but the front sites are well kept up. Office staff was very friendly. Bathrooms and showers were immaculate. Very dog friendly. Staff allowed me to take dog off leash and chase a ball for 20 minutes to burn off energy after our long drive. The price was right. We got six channels on TV antenna. The free Wi-Fi worked well. I did not experience the ant problems referred to in earlier reviews. We camped at Los Banos West / I-5 KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Indian Wells RV Resort, Indio, California

Date of Stay: February, 2010 - $39.00
Overall Rating:

Needed a place for a one night stay with electricity. Have a 30 ft travel trailer towed by a suburban. We were given an overflow spot with Electric/Water/Sewer. Very tight spot (#308). Due to a hedge and a turn in the road, the spot was difficult to back into. The spot was so narrow, the motor home to my right had to retract his awning into his spot so I could back in. If the motor home had a slide out on his passenger side rear, I would have been unable to open my slide out. When my trailer door opened there was less than six inches of clearance between me and the trailer on my passenger side. My trailer was between the painted lines on the asphalt. The asphalt was uneven and I needed a one inch board to level my trailer side to side. I had to maneuver my suburban to not block the road when parking. The woman in the office was nice but I will not return to this park. We camped at Indian Wells RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Tucson / Lazydays KOA, Tucson, Arizona

Date of Stay: February, 2010 - $51.00
Overall Rating:

Front office staff was very friendly and made excellent recommendations of places to eat in the area. We needed to extend one night and the staff was accommodating but there were at least 50 open sites in the park. The dog run was huge and well maintained. The park was quiet and extremely clean. We had a concrete patio with table and chairs. This was our first "luxury resort." For the prices being charged I was surprised that we had to level one inch side to side in our spot. The way the sewer hookup was designed, I had to find a large rock to keep the end of my sewer hose in the dump site. We took this park since we had no reservations and I needed a spot with electricity. There appeared to be many discounts, I heard people receiving, but I was unable to get a AAA, Good Sam or any other type of discount. I would not return to this resort if I had to pay full price. We camped at Tucson / Lazydays KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Mesa / Apache Junction KOA, Apache Junction, Arizona

Date of Stay: January, 2010 - $36.00
Overall Rating:

Spent two nights in a travel trailer. Very easy to find. Beautiful views from the campground. Sites were level and there was reasonable space between the sites. The office staff was not very professional. We had to wait for the staff to finish personal phone calls before they acknowledged our presence. The Sundance Lounge (recommended by the KOA staff) next door to the KOA served good food in large portions. Needed propane. The maintenance staff was very friendly and professional. Like the other reviewer said, they should get rid of any reference to a dog run. We camped at Mesa / Apache Junction KOA in a Tent Trailer.

Blue Sky Ranch RV Park (formerly Arizona Sands RV Park) (55+ Park), Yuma, Arizona

Date of Stay: January, 2010 - $24.00
Overall Rating:

The price we paid was a club rate. The front office staff was friendly and very helpful when looking for supplies, attractions and repairs in the Yuma area. We had over 2 inches of rain in a 24 hour period. The park drained well and staff moved rock and put in drainage ditches to move any large puddles. There was a nice recreation room made available for our club. A BBQ, Art Show and numerous activities were available for residents of the park. All the roads are gravel. The park backs up to a canal. The canal has a dirt walkway that is great for walking dogs or jogging. We camped at Blue Sky Ranch RV Park (formerly Arizona Sands RV Park) (55+ Park) in a Travel Trailer.

The Cove RV Resort (formerly Riviera RV Resort and Marina), Blythe, California

Date of Stay: January, 2010 - $33.00
Overall Rating:

First KOA I had been to in many years. Very friendly staff. We were led to site and positioned for easy hook up. Water faucet leaked. Contacted office and they immediately came and fixed faucet. Roads are wide and easy to drive. New picnic tables throughout the park. A decent amount of room between the RV's. Very pet friendly. Camp K-9 was great on Dog Island. This is a large fenced in area my dog could run to her heart's content. We camped at The Cove RV Resort (formerly Riviera RV Resort and Marina) in a Travel Trailer.
