Rose Valley RV Ranch, Silver City, New Mexico

Date of Stay: October, 2016 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

Absolutely awful WiFi!! Ten years ago I reviewed this place. At that time it was clean and well-managed but the WiFi was worthless. A decade later in the middle of the second decade of the 21st century I can report the park is still clean and well-managed (but more permanent residents). Sadly, I must also report that the WiFi is still so bad that you can't even connect to pick up email when you are parked less than 50' from the antenna. Really! In 2016 in an urban setting (as urban as Silver City can be) these folks won't invest in the equipment required to deliver reasonable Internet access. If you are still living in the 1990's and happy with dial-up Internet access, this is the place for you. If you exist in the contemporary world and expect modern conveniences, skip this place. We camped at Rose Valley RV Ranch in a Tent Trailer.

Rose Valley RV Ranch, Silver City, New Mexico

Date of Stay: November, 2005 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

Great little park that made the best of an interesting location adjacent to a cemetery. Thoughtfully-designed, large sites that preserved as much of the natural landscape as possible. Very nice owner. Designed to have an Old West rustic theme and quite tastefully done. The rough gravel driveways and sites are appropriate for such a them. Low-cost WiFi albeit with an odd arrangement for blocking freeloaders. Much easier ways to handle it without providing MAC addresses for your laptops. Cable TV would have been a nice addition. Definitely a worth a repeat visit if we are in the area. We camped at Rose Valley RV Ranch in a Travel Trailer.

Sunny Acres RV Park (55+ park), Las Cruces, New Mexico

Date of Stay: November, 2005 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

This park has been grossly over-rated even though the owners are making a valiant effort at creating a silk purse from a sow's ear. Largely a do-it-yourself effort and it shows. It remains a mobile home park with dusty roads, mediocre facilities and a location in a rather grungy part of town on an old commercial strip. Modestly redeemed by the wonderful smell of roasting peppers at an adjacent processing plant (an indication of the neighborhood). Might be worth an overnight stay if the better parks are full. We camped at Sunny Acres RV Park (55+ park) in a Travel Trailer.

Trailer Ranch RV Park (55+ Park), Santa Fe, New Mexico

Date of Stay: October, 2005 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

This park has its charms largely because the owners have done such a nice job at preserving the 1950's ambience of the park. Old but not deteriorated. Pleasant owners. However, the sites are very small and they offer Coach Connect for WiFi which has always been a problem for us throughout Texas and New Mexico. We would visit again.

Blazing Star Luxury RV Resort, San Antonio, Texas

Date of Stay: October, 2005 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

Nice park but a bit over-rated when compared to parks that really are 10s (e.g. Buckhorn Lake in Kerrvile). Mediocre WiFi service and the road noise was worse than it should have been. Good roads and level concrete pads. We camped at Blazing Star Luxury RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Balmorhea State Park, Balmorhea, Texas

Date of Stay: October, 2005 - $14.00
Overall Rating:      

Great little state park at a charming site in West Texas. Lack of sewer hookups makes it difficult for long stays but it's an interesting location. We would stay here should we pass through West Texas again. We camped at Balmorhea State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Big Bend Resort & Adventures RV Park & Campground (Big Bend Motor Inn), Terlingua, Texas

Date of Stay: October, 2005 - $18.00
Overall Rating:      

It's cheap and close to the park. Other than that, it's simply a rather dumpy RV park behind a tacky motel in a dusty, little wide spot in the road. The sites weren't level and, given the miles of nothing in West Texas, stupidly-designed narrow sites. However, it's the only game in town and Big Bend Park is so harshly beautiful that is was worth a couple nights here just to be able to easily visit the park. The yin and the yang of RVing. We camped at Big Bend Resort & Adventures RV Park & Campground (Big Bend Motor Inn) in a Travel Trailer.

Buckhorn Lake Resort, Kerrville, Texas

Date of Stay: October, 2005 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

One of the few parks that really justify a 10 notwithstanding the three-foot snake that meandered by our RV shortly after we arrived (remember, this is rural Texas and the snakes were here first). Exceptional facilities that were obviously designed by an architect, not cobbled together by the usual do-it-yourself RV park owner. Wide sites, concrete pads and paved roads. A bit too close to the freeway (take a half point off the rating) but not too bad. Good WiFi. Suitable for a long stay. We camped at Buckhorn Lake Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Austin Lone Star Carefree RV Resort, Austin, Texas

Date of Stay: October, 2005 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

Over-rated by Woodalls and Trailer Life (this park buys big display ads in the RV park guides). Old, run-down, narrow roads, several abandoned trailers, dicey neighborhood. And the The only redeeming feature is its proximity to Austin. Typical of most big cities --the economics prohibit quality RV parks. We would only use this park again if we *really* had to be close to Austin. Otherwise, stay in Fredricksburg or Kerrville and day-trip in to Austin. We camped at Austin Lone Star Carefree RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

According to the staff at Waheap Campground, this park has been closed. I believe Aramark runs both parks. Not to worry since the Waheap Campground is a very nice alternative. We camped in a Travel Trailer.

Thousand Lakes RV Park, Torrey, Utah

Date of Stay: September, 2005 - $18.00
Overall Rating:      

Some sites are so small they actually combined two to make a single, usable site. Bathrooms and showers are clean but rustic if you like that sort of thing. Wi-Fi works but a *really* slow broadband link. Pleasant staff. Very scenic backdrop for the lucky few who are willing to sacrifice a full hookup (sites 1-13). Avoid sites 50-58. We camped at Thousand Lakes RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Panguitch KOA, Panguitch, Utah

Date of Stay: September, 2005 - $27.00
Overall Rating:      

Typical KOA campground -- very friendly, helpful owners but rustic facilities. Everything functions well but a bit worn at the edges (a general KOA issue). Several ATV groups (ATVs are big in Utah) but they were unusually quiet. We camped at Panguitch KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Wahweap RV and Campground, Page, Arizona

Date of Stay: September, 2005 - $29.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a great park off-season after the jet ski and party boat crowd take their kids and head home for the school year. Well-maintained with large, level paved sites. Very nice desert landscaping. This would be a 10 if they had better communications (cell service and/or Wi-Fi) and the staff were a bit more friendly. Rather a governmental attitude but not surprising since Aramark is a huge government concessionnaire. We camped at Wahweap RV and Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Canyon Motel & RV Park, Williams, Arizona

Date of Stay: September, 2005 - $27.00
Overall Rating:      

This park is NOT the Railside RV Park which is down the road 300 yards. It's easy to inadvertently turn in here first. Even though this park is still being developed (dusty and the owner was grading new sites while we were there), the owners are nice and have the best of intentions for developing the park. The utility infrastructure is brand new and the WiFi is powerful and working most of the time. If the owners make the right decisions over the next few years, this might be a nice park. They need to work on site leveling a bit more and landscaping is apparently on the agenda in the next few weeks. Overall, certainly better than the Railside RV Park which denies they have seasonals and permanents notwithstanding the plywood skirting around many units. We chose this place over the Railside RV Park which is looking rather run-down. We camped at Canyon Motel & RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

San Francisco North / Petaluma KOA, Petaluma, California

Date of Stay: September, 2005 - $38.00
Overall Rating:      

If you like the never-ending smell of fresh cow manure (this place is downwind from a large dairy), sites that are not level and lack of basic WiFi service near the high-tech capital of the world, this is the place for you. Over-priced for a rather mediocre facility. Unfortunately, the choices in the San Francisco Bay Area are rather limited and this is the best of the lot. We stay there because of necessity, not choice, during our periodic trips to SF. Grin and bear it and look forward to moving on in a few days. We camped at San Francisco North / Petaluma KOA in a Travel Trailer.
