Lakeside RV and Campground, Provo, Utah

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $17.00
Overall Rating:      

Lakeside RV is a wonderful campground. It is located right next to the Provo river and less than a mile from Utah Lake nestled in beautiful shade trees. Staff are very friendly and will bend over backwards to help you. Park is quiet and very clean. Free park Wifi available but depending on how full the park is can be on the slow side. Pool, Laundry room, and small store located on site. Site spacing is a little tight on your service side. The sites have you park one in east and one in west so that you and your neighbors rig are within 5 feet of each other if you both have slides, however this gives you about a 25 foot lawn space between you and your neighbor on your living side. Use caution when entering the park. Park entrance is right after you cross the river and is just after a blind curve. Lot's to do, see in the city of Provo within 10 miles of park. I highly recommend this park. We camped at Lakeside RV and Campground in a Motorhome.

Sams Club, large shopping mall, and movie theater within 10 miles of park. Costco, Walmart and another large shopping mall within 15 miles of park. The city of Provo has a Recreation Center that is unbelievable. Has both indoor and outdoor swimming pools, kids water slides, activities, lazy river, full gym facilities, indoor track and much more. They charge $5 for adults and $4 for kids for the day.

Phoenix Metro RV Park (55+ park), Phoenix, Arizona

Date of Stay: February, 2016 - $33.00
Overall Rating:      

Appears to be an older park with fairly narrow streets, sharp turns and fairly small lots. I have a 40 foot class A and it took all of the site and only had one foot from my bumper to the street. Level site with gravel. Friendly staff in office. Park internet was worthless. Incredibly slow. My own Verizon internet and phone service had a good signal. Entrance to campground is off a one way frontage street parallel to Hwy 17 and has a very sharp turn for a big rig but doable. We camped at Phoenix Metro RV Park (55+ park) in a Motorhome.

WillowWind RV Park, Hurricane, Utah

Date of Stay: March, 2015 - $17.00
Overall Rating:      

Very nice campground. Friendly staff. Lots of trees. Great for shade in the summer but hard to get satellite TV reception. They do have satellite friendly sites available. Great location for close ATV trails. Hurricane hosts the annual Tri-State ATV Jamboree that people come from all over the USA just to ride these trails. Park is quite and well maintained. They do not accept mail or packages in the office. UPS and Fedex deliver to your site but not the post office. No patio or picnic tables. Concrete pad for RV and car. Grass between sites. Nice clubhouse. We would stay here again. We camped at WillowWind RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is a very nice 55+park. People come from all over the US for the winter months. Good location. Grocery store, movie theater, fast food restaurants, banks, gas stations, urgent care all close by. Very quiet park. Lot's of activities in park. Overnight price reflects the monthly price. We camped at Green Valley RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Rose RV Park, Quartzsite, Arizona

Date of Stay: January, 2014 - $38.00
Overall Rating:      

This park cares about one thing and one thing only. MONEY. They decided that they could split their full hookups into two sites and double their money during the busy Quartzsite RV and Gem Show. Sites were so tight that some campers could not use both slides. Sewers were jury rigged and leaked. Smell was unbelievable. Noise from nearby Interstate 10 was loud. There are no restrooms or showers. This was the worse campground we have ever stayed at. We will not stay here again. We camped at Rose RV Park in a Motorhome.

WillowWind RV Park, Hurricane, Utah

Date of Stay: November, 2013 - $32.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a very nice park. This is our second stay here. Not sure if they have changed ownership, but changes have been made since our last stay, and more will be made January 1, 2014. Changes now are that they no longer accept any personal mail and packages must be delivered directly to your site. Reservations after January 1st must be paid in full ($50 now) and refund policy will change to 30 days before stay and of course, rates go up, too. This park used to bend over backwards to accommodate the RV traveler. Doesn't appear that way anymore for some reason. We would still camp here again. You just have to plan to pick up your mail as general delivery at the post office, pay the full amount at time of booking and not cancel within 30 days. We camped at WillowWind RV Park in a Motorhome.

Santee Lakes Recreation Preserve, Santee, California

Date of Stay: January, 2013 - $23.00
Overall Rating:      

Rate reflects monthly rate plus .16 cents per KW for electricity. Very nice park. Has several lakes with lots of wildlife in the area. Great area to walk, run or ride a bike. Good sites with plenty of room between you and your neighbor. Close to Costco, Lowe's, Home Depot, and lots of places to eat and shop. Approximately 16 miles to the beach, 14 to San Diego Zoo or Sea World. Very good campground internet. Poor Verizon coverage in most of the park. Has a pool, club house, picnic areas, laundry room, and kids play areas. Several Lakes to fish in with permit purchase. This is a very beautiful campground to stay at. Vary clean and lots to do here. We would camp here again. We camped at Santee Lakes Recreation Preserve in a Motorhome.

WillowWind RV Park, Hurricane, Utah

Date of Stay: November, 2012 - $12.00
Overall Rating:      

We camped here in a 40' rig with four slides. We had a pull through spot that was about 70 feet long and there was plenty of room between each spot next to you. There is a small strip of grass and large trees between each spot. Internet was free and was fairly good. Office staff was very friendly and helpful. They do allow packages sent to the park in your name. Good location in town. Wal-Mart is approximately 3 miles, grocery store is across the street, movie theater is one mile and St. George is 30 miles with a Costco. Great area for ATV activity. Overall this is an excellent park. Our rates reflect the monthly price. We camped at WillowWind RV Park in a Motorhome.

Lakeside RV and Campground, Provo, Utah

Date of Stay: October, 2012 - $12.00
Overall Rating:      

Overall, this is a fairly nice campground. There are some problems as stated in the other reviews such as an airport located just a few miles away,and you are fairly close to your neighbor. But there are many nice things too, such as large shade trees, good internet, Utah lake park within walking distance, and one of the most beautiful walking/biking paths you could ever want along the Provo river that goes all the way into Provo Canyon. Access to this is just a block away. This is the third time we stayed at this park in the last two years and would stay here again. The rate reflects the monthly rate.

Hominy Valley RV Park, Candler, North Carolina

Date of Stay: November, 2011 - $15.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a very small campground nestled in Hominy Valley up against a hillside and Highway 151. There are five gravel full hookup sites and one electric only overflow site. There is no camp host. There is a mailbox with camping information and self addressed stamped envelopes to pay for your site. We have been here almost a month now and often this place is full. I highly recommend calling for reservations in advance. Although Hwy 151 is only about one hundred feet from the campground, the traffic noise is not a problem at night. The camp is located about 8 miles from Asheville NC, and about 10 miles from the Blue Ridge Parkway. The fall colors here were fantastic. There is a dog walk and a small walkway up the back of the camp to a viewing platform. There are no restrooms, pool, laundry or Wi-Fi onsite. They do offer monthly and Passport America discounts. If you looking for a campground to spend the night or see the Asheville area, I highly recommend this one. We would camp here again. We camped at Hominy Valley RV Park in a Motorhome.

Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park, Portage, Indiana

Date of Stay: July, 2011 - $17.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a huge campground that has a lot of potential. Unfortunately, it is located in a very bad (Run Down) area and has a very active train track on one side of the campground and a very busy 4 lane freeway located on the other side. The campground has 900 spaces with about 70% of them being privately owned. Most of them have one or two golf carts to run around in so the weekends are crazy. During the week it was not an issue. The trees and shrubbery need some serious pruning. The streets are very narrow and with the overgrown shrubbery and trees it makes it very hard to navigate large rigs through the park. The roads in the park are dirt and gravel but the park maintained them fairly well. There are some 50 Amp service sites but they are located near the freeway side of the park where it is very loud. We stayed here for one month and the price reflects the monthly rate. We would not stay here again. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park in a Motorhome.

Waupaca Camping Park, LLC, Waupaca, Wisconsin

Date of Stay: May, 2011 - $18.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a wonderful campground located just miles from downtown Waupaca in a wooded setting. Most camp sites are shaded by large trees. The campground is well kept up and very clean. This is a family type campground and is very quiet. The owners are wonderful to work with and will do anything possible to make your stay pleasant. There are some 50 amp electric and water sites available along the shore of Old Taylor Lake. All of the sites with sewer hook ups have 30 amp service only. They do have a dump station located near the office. They have a nice large, in ground swimming pool that is solar heated. The store located in the campground office is very well stocked for all of your camping needs. They offer small cabins and even some yurts for rent. The price stated represents the monthly rate. (We stayed here a month.) This campground does not have internet WiFi service. We personally have Verizon phone and Internet Service. The phones worked well under the "Extended Network" but the Internet for our MiFi would only hookup under "Roaming" and would cost extra to use. I would not normally rate a campground a ten that does not have WiFi, but this campground is exceptional. We definitely will camp here again. We camped at Waupaca Camping Park, LLC in a Motorhome.

This is a great campground. Office staff were very friendly and informative. We stayed here on the Passport America Rate. Most sites are on concrete pads. Sites are large and have plenty of space between you and your neighbor. Campground is well kept and quiet. Cable TV and Internet included in price. Internet was among the fastest I have ever used in a campground. Shuttle service available for transportation into town for shows. We would definitely camp here again.

Treetops RV Resort, Arlington, Texas

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

This is a nice campground located in the heart of Arlington. Beware, this park claims that they honor Passport America year round, Sunday night through Thursday night. We came in on a Thursday morning just for the night and they would not honor the Passport America Price. When asked why not, the lady at the office just said that was their policy and she did not know why. I had an emergency dental appointment that Thursday afternoon or I would not have stayed at the full rate. Other than that we had no other complaints. We would stay here again under Passport America Rates. We camped at Treetops RV Resort in a Motorhome.
