Timberline Campground, Waukee, Iowa

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

Timberline Campground in Waukee Iowa is our go to campground when we are in the area. It is a little expensive, about the same as a KOA, but its closeness to Des Moines and to Bob's family and friends make it worth the $. As it usually turns out when we have been somewhere before our GPS devices agreed on the route and brought us right to the campground. Sometimes, someplace we have never been before we might have issues, but not today. We were surprised to learn at checkin that as of May the campground has new owners. So far things appear to be as they were before which was encouraging. The interior roads are gravel as is the site. There is a concrete patio. This was the first time for us in the trees but it all worked out. We backed up enough in our pull-thru to get on the patio but still be in the trees somewhat with great satellite signal strength. We balanced all that and we are glad we were in the trees as we had some 90-90 days, highs in the 90s and humidity in the 90s. Just a typical summer day in Iowa. We had some rain and wished there was a little more gravel as the site got a little muddy. And we wished the sites were a little further apart. The hookups were convenient once we settled on our stopping point. The free park wifi was fairly good except in high traffic times. Since we are so close to Des Moines the Verizon 4g and cellphone signal strength was pretty good. As mentioned before this is our go to place in central Iowa so we will definitely stay here again. We camped at Timberline Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Pine Grove RV Park and Campground, Greenwood, Nebraska

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

Our GPS devices brought us right to the park. The front office was courteous. The roads and sites and pad were all gravel with a grass patio. We were in a long pull-thru and the hookups were convenient and the spacing between sites was pretty good. There is free wifi provided by the park with some caveats. For one week you get 3 days free and then you have to pay. The signal was fairly strong but it was slow. The Verizon cellphone signal was fairly weak and there were a number of dropped calls. The Verizon 4g signal was also fairly weak. so we had a somewhat limited connectivity week. We had a great line of sight for our roof mounted satellite dish so our television watching was good. Although close to the interstate we didn't have that much road noise probably because we were in the row furthermost from the highway. The first part of the week the furthermost row was a good thing. Then on Friday night it became a bad thing as we were the closest row to the I-80 Speedway and they had races. We camped at Pine Grove RV Park and Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Kearney RV Park and Campground, Kearney, Nebraska

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

This is a really nice park, once you get to the correct one. The same people own the Kearney RV Park and Campground and the Kearney RV Park, if you go by what was on our GPS devices. We input the first park and both of our GPS devices brought us right there. Turns out that is the North Park and the office, and our site as it turns out, was in the second park, or the Getaway Bay Park. Times like these make us glad we now go on much shorter days than when we started. Once we made it to the Getaway Bay Park the gal in the office was not there. Luckily we were behind another RV that did the same thing we did. She called the number on the sign and we were both told to go setup and then pay later. The roads, our site and our parking spot were gravel with the pad being concrete. The hookups were reversed from our rig with water at the back and power in the front. We have a long power code and plenty of fresh water hoses so it worked out just fine. We had a good line of sight for our roof mounted satellite dish. The Verizon cellphone signal was strong as was the 4g. The free park wifi for the most part was pretty good so we used that a lot. We were surprised how big Kearney was and how much it had to offer. It was a week well spent and if we ever are in this area we would not hesitate to stay here again. We camped at Kearney RV Park and Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Pony Express RV Park, Julesburg, Colorado

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

We weren't expecting much out of the Pony Express and RV Park in Julesburg Colorado, we were just looking for a park less than 200 miles from Aurora Colorado on the way to Lincoln Nebraska for a short stop. Like we said we weren't expecting much and the park delivered what we expected. Our GPS devices brought us right to the park although we had trouble finding it on one of them. Since it was right across the street from the Colorado Welcome Center we input that location. When we got there there was no discernible office so we called and was told to pick a site, the 50a sites are at one end of the row. The owner of the park runs the Welcome Center so we got settled and went there and paid for 2 nights. Everything is gravel except for the grass that you have to drive on to get into the pull-thrus. The hookups were convenient and we had a great line of sight for our roof mounted satellite dish. We think that since we were so close to the Colorado Welcome Center and to I-76 we had real good Verizon 4g and cellphone reception. This a no frills park with no wifi so we were glad for the good Verizon coverage. The park and the area is probably best for a short stay. We camped at Pony Express RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Cherry Creek State Park, Aurora, Colorado

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

We really like this park and we like the Goldrush Loop where most of the sites are roadside pull-thrus and the spacing between sites is amazing. We almost didn't need our GPS devices but when we are towing we keep them on in case we get detoured. The interior roads and our parking spot were asphalt and our site was concrete. We were in a backin since we made our reservation late and could only get 5 nights. The hookups were convenient. The park wifi was free but mostly unusable. We had good Verizon cellphone and 4g coverage. There was a good line of sight for our roof mounted satellite dish. We will definitely stay here again and hopefully will have at least 6 months to make reservations. If you try to make last minute reservations you will be surprised how fast it fills up, especially the weekends. We camped at Cherry Creek State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Dakota Ridge RV Park, Golden, Colorado

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

Both of our GPS devices brought us right to the Dakota Ridge RV Park in Golden Colorado. We were a little disappointed when we got to our site and it was barely long enough for our RV and truck. Plus it was on the end of a row right next to a noisy street. We had made our reservation well in advance and we know that they don't guarantee a specific site we seemed to get no benefit from reserving early except for having a site. At least the site had a good line of sight for our roof mounted satellite dish. The sites are close together and adding to our discomfort the park is kind of hilly so we had to elevate our entrance more than with any other park in almost 8 years of fulltiming. We camped at Dakota Ridge RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Rifle Gap State Park - Lakeview Loop, Rifle, Colorado

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

Our GPS devices brought us right to the visitors center and then we went to our site and backed in and setup. The interior roads were asphalt as was our parking site. The pad for the Lifestyle was concrete. The rest of the site was gravel including the covered picnic table. The hookups were convenient and we had a great line of sight for our roof mounted satellite dish. The only downside to this great park is it is in a deadzone for cellular phone and data.

OK RV Park & Canyonlands Stables, Moab, Utah

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

We had stayed here previously in 2011 and thought we would be in the RV sites at the back of the park. We were looking forward to the great views there. With our previous visit here and our GPS devices we had no trouble getting here. It was a short pull thru, maybe because we came in on a Sunday of the Memorial Day Weekend. Even though it was a pull thru we had to jockey through the park since the site was right where we stopped to walk into the office to checkin. Once settled in the site the hookups were convenient. We had a good line of sight for our roof mounted satellite dish. The Verizon phone service was strong but we guess maybe because of the mountains the 4g signal was erratic and slow even though we were close to the office. The free park wifi was generally better than Verizon 4g. Moab is such a great area with so much to see and do with some good places to eat that we would probably visit again and would not hesitate to stay at this park again. We would be sure and request a site at the rear of the park with the better views. We camped at OK RV Park & Canyonlands Stables in a Fifth Wheel.

Cortez / Mesa Verde KOA, Cortez, Colorado

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $50.00
Overall Rating:      

Our GPS devices brought us right to the KOA. The front desk was friendly and efficient. The interior roads and sites were gravel. We were in a long pull thru and it took a little jockeying since the power pedestal was at the front of the site and our cord connection is at the rear of the Lifestyle. We had to add our sewer hose extension. Once settled the hookups went smoothly. We had a good line of sight for our roof mounted satellite dish. The Verizon cellphone signal and 4g signals were pretty good. This is a very nice park in a great location. We would stay here again. We camped at Cortez / Mesa Verde KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Mountain Landing Suites & RV Park, Pagosa Springs, Colorado

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

We were blown away by the wildlife that we could see out our back window at the Mountain Landings Suites and RV Park in Pagosa Springs Colorado. Both GPS devices brought us right to the park. The gal at checkin was friendly and had a great recommendation for food at Marconi's which we tried that night and once more for lunch. The park roads and sites are gravel. We had a backin this time and shock of all shocks we did it like champs. The hookups were convenient. The Verizon phone coverage was pretty good but the Verizon 4g was very spotty and slow most of the times with frequent shifts to 3g. We found that to be the case in town also. The park wifi was a little better than the Verizon 4g so we used that most of the week. Although there were trees we had called ahead to make sure we got a satellite friendly site and we ended up with a great line of sight for our roof mounted dish. We had a so so week weather wise but the wildlife out our back window more than made up of that. Pagosa Springs is such a great area we would probably visit again. If we did we would stay here again. We camped at Mountain Landing Suites & RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Alamosa KOA, Alamosa, Colorado

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

We had a lot of rain during our stay at the Alamosa KOA in Alamosa Colorado but the park's gravel roads and sites held up well. Our Rand McNally GPS brought us right to the park but the Garmin GPS would have had us turn a little earlier but ended up at the same point. The hookups were convenient in our 100' pull thru. We had a good line of sight for our roof mounted satellite dish. The park wifi was good which was nice because we were approaching the Verizon 4g speed data limit on our jetpack. The Verizon phone service was spotty but the Verizon 4g was pretty good. We would probably stay here again if in the area. We camped at Alamosa KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Santa Fe Skies RV Park, Santa Fe, New Mexico

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $48.00
Overall Rating:      

Our GPS devices agreed on the route and brought us right to the Santa Fe Skies RV Park. Sitting on a hill on the west side overlooking Santa Fe this is a picturesque park. The roads are gravel as are the sites. There are concrete patios with picnic tables. The hookups are fairly convenient although the sewer connection is slightly elevated, but workable. We had a good line of sight for our roof mounted satellite dish. Since this park is in a picturesque and convenient location, very close to NM14 which becomes Cerrillos Road, we will stay here again if in the area. If what you are looking for is not on the Square then it probably is on Cerrillos Road. We camped at Santa Fe Skies RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Albuquerque Central KOA, Albuquerque, New Mexico

Date of Stay: April, 2017 - $70.00
Overall Rating:      

With KOAs there is always a tradeoff. A KOA is usually more expensive but they usually are very conveniently located. This is the case with the Albuquerque KOA. In fact it was in an ideal location for what we wanted to accomplish this week. Our foodie spots Sadies and La Salita are very close as is the National Museum of Nuclear Science and History. Add to that Costco, Sam's Club, Wal-Mart and an Albertsons grocery store are nearby to make this one of the better situated parks we have stayed at. Although we are very close to Interstate 40 there is a wall that does a great job cutting down on the noise. The park is nicely kept up, the streets and sites are paved and wide for easy in/out access. All in all a very nice park and worth it to us. This may be our new go to spot while staying in Albuquerque. We camped at Albuquerque Central KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Bottomless Lakes State Park, Roswell, New Mexico

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

Bottomless Lakes State Park is about 12 miles from Roswell. Getting here is GPS challenged once you get on Bottomless Lake Road. GPS tip is to just keep going on Bottomless Lake Road and you'll eventually get to the campground. Your GPS might want you to turn once or twice before you get to the campground, just ignore it. The campground has 6 full hookup sites, some tent sites, and a number of water and electric sites, all with 30amps. Some sites can be reserved and some are first come first served. The interior roads and sites are gravel. The hookups are convenient. There are some trees but we had a good line of site for our roof mounted satellite dish. This campground has some of the longest pullthrus we have ever seen. We would stay here again because it is so scenic and we have more to see in Roswell. We camped at Bottomless Lakes State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Midland RV Campground, Midland, Texas

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

The main draw for us for this RV Park was the fact that it was on city water. Other parks are on well water and the water is not so good. But according to our water tester the water here is above the threshold for tap water. A quick trip to get gallons of drinking water took care of that issue. Our GPS devices disagreed a lot on this trip but we ended up where we needed to be. Although the lady at the front desk at checkin was real nice the guy who guided us to our site was a little gruff. We did pull into a secondary entrance which didn't help our cause. The interior roads and sites are gravel. The hookups are convenient. We ended up in a pullthru and we had a great line of sight for our roof mounted satellite dish. We would probably stay here again as this is probably the best in the area.
