Good Sam rate. Fairly clean, moderately quiet, reasonable paved if not roomy spots, overpriced for what it is. Mostly long-termers with a 20-some daily/weekly spots. Owners seem to be only grudgingly interested in short-term visitors. Internet varied between unreliable and nonexistent. Long drive to any shopping. No change available for the laundry. For a visitor in town on business there's nothing really wrong with this place, but there's nothing really right about it either. We'd stay here again, but only if we can't find a better place.

Date of Stay:

Clean, conveniently located park with nice grassy sites. Walk across the street for a nice view of the river. Complimentary shuttle to the casino. 10 minute drive to the battlefield, 5 minutes to downtown or Wal-Mart. It's not a resort campground, it's a place to stay while visiting the rest of Vicksburg. At night you'll hear the occasional train or barge tow, but they're not obtrusive. Good staff. We'd stay here again.

27 shady, roomy but not quite level camp sites in the woods. Everything is looking a bit worn, but functional. An easy walk to Space Camp or the museum. Very peaceful at night. Afternoons may be filled with "3-2-1" countdowns and the whoosh of model rockets from the adjacent launch site. The reviewers who complain about the wayward model rocket parts that litter the trees, bushes, and grounds just don't understand this place. It's a nerd Nirvana, folks. Go with it. The rate is a screaming bargain for full hookups. Where else can you camp within sight of a 360+ foot tall moon rocket? We don't care for the handful of shoddy long-term tenant rigs, but they manage not to ruin the charm of the place. We'll be back.

Rate is approximate. This is an older but well maintained KOA way back in the heavily wooded hills about 15 miles from Chattanooga. Some of the friendliest, most helpful staff we've ever experienced. They really are trying for the family-camping market, and this is a nice place to bring the kids to let them blow off steam. But for an RV tourist wanting to "do" Chattanooga it's pretty inconvenient to town. The park's other main limitations are painfully slow wifi, sorta-level sites and very limited (though cable) TV.

Date of Stay:

A decent overnight stop. Office had closed at 5:30 so we picked a spot and self-registered. Convenient to interstate and GA State Fair grounds. Some highway noise but to be expected given the location. Gravel site 2 required leveling blocks. Rate might seem high but given that the State Fair had just opened, it was a market price. Would stop here again.

This is one of three massive camping/vacation resorts located on the beach just South of Myrtle Beach International airport. Sites are clean, level, and of a fairly roomy size, but also close together with virtually no shade. The picnic tables are pretty weatherbeaten. We've seen far worse. There are several snack bars with seasonally-variable hours, a game arcade, auditorium, a good-sized swimming pool complex and several other amenities. Check-in staff was pleasant and efficient. The interior roadways are passable if not wide. Generally the place was fairly peaceful, considering the number of people. Our spot was about seven spaces back from the dune and the surf sound was only occasionally drowned out by people. Impromptu evening beach fireworks are fairly common, but weren't bothersome during our stay. There are a lot of golf carts but this is a large, spread-out place. We experienced only careful, courteous drivers. Only electric golf carts are allowed according to resort rules, which keeps the noise down. Wi-Fi was very good at our site. There are no grills or fire rings supplied, but you may bring your own. One nice touch: You're given a trash bag at check-in. When they pick up the filled bag from your site they give you a new one. We'd stay here again. It was a nice place to relax and do nothing for a few days.

Rate is with 10% KOA card discount. This was an overnight stop. One of the better KOAs. Level, shady sand spaces. Well-kept. Tengo Wi-Fi. Railroad a few hundred yards across the highway, but only a few trains at night, noise was not too bad. Pretty fishing lake with lots of ducks, geese and swans. Rowboat rentals. Friendly staff. Would stay here again.

Date of Stay:

This is a semi-residential park with a section for travelers. Paved access lanes, reasonably spacious level gravel/dirt sites set up on a "buddy system" with utilities between two sites. Well-kept grass and trees with some shade. Right next to a major highway but has an effective sound wall. Staff is pleasant, but not outstanding. I'd stay here again.

Date of Stay:

A decent overnight stop. Staff was VERY helpful and pleasant. They'll loan you a power extension if needed. Lots of families camping here for the weekend, but I was an over nighter passing through. No shade, but nice views of the hills. Roads are gravel but decently maintained. Same for sites. Sloping ground means some leveling usually needed, but not extreme. I'd stay here again.

Dusty, rough access lanes. Sites not quite level due to poor maintenance. So-so Wi-Fi. Except for one very nice lady (perhaps an owner) the staff looks and acts like they really would rather be someplace else. I didn't try the pool, but it got a lot of happy activity, so I'll assume that it's well-maintained. This is mostly an OK overnight stop, but not much more than that. I'd stay here again if I needed to.

Rate is Passport America. Overnight stop only this time. A nice little park in a country setting with a beautiful view of the hills. Clean, with nicely landscaped sites. Very nice staff. Didn't use the Wi-Fi. This was a great overnight rest stop after a long day's drive. If I visit the area again and need to stay longer I'll definitely stay here.

Rate is Good Sam. Good things first: The park is very clean and facilities are modern. It's surprisingly quiet in spite of being on a busy street. There are lots of trees surrounding the park, and the between-site trees and shrubs are nicely done. It's about as convenient to Everett and Seattle as you'll find. The rate is on a par for the area. The staff was pleasant enough. The Wi-Fi worked reasonably well except some evenings when it bogged down. The bad: CRAMPED. WIthout a doubt the smallest sites of any campground I've ever seen. The property really isn't big enough for more than 2/3 the number of sites they've crammed in here. The spacious (their claim) back-in assigned to my 30 foot single-slide RV was barely long enough. With my slide right up against the electric stand there was barely enough room to park my tow vehicle. Space between sites is measured in inches. The laundry is tiny. Sites ar far from level, most requiring 4-5 inches of leveling blocks on one side. It's several miles drive to a decent supermarket or shopping center. Everett is an aircraft town, so be prepared for airplane noise from nearby Paine Field, but only during the day. As a pilot, I happen to love it, but be forewarned. I'd stay here again, but only as a last resort.

Aside from being the most convenient campground for visiting Mesa Verde there is little to recommend here. Access roads are narrow, rough and steep with low overhanging trees making back-ins a chore. No AT&T cell service or Verizon MiFi data service anwhere nearby. Some sites look roomy, but many are tight - not because of nearby neighbors but because of trees. The camp store Wi-Fi was unusable. One person I spoke to there had spent the entire day trying to download a mere 70 Megabyte file. After 8 hours he finally gave up. Camp store is passable, but not well stocked. I would not stay here again. Unfortunately that means I will not return to Mesa Verde as there are no better choices.

The best location if you're riding the train. Less than half a mile walk to the station, and the tracks cross the river on a bridge right behind the campground. Some sites look moderately roomy, but many are bunched together and are narrow for our 30 foot trailer with one slide. Site was level, well-packed gravel. Access roads are well-packed gravel, but are narrow. Women's restroom / shower was closed for renovation. Lots of shade (those trees, again) and access to the river shoreline. Great staff. Would stay here again.

Rate is net including taxes. Considering the Durango market, the price is not out of line, but it's no bargain either. A beautiful park right on the Animas River. A little farther out of town than others, but worth the extra miles for the peace and beauty of the place. Staff was outstanding: Friendly, knowledgeable, and efficient. Well-stocked store and gift shop. Didn't try the pool, but it looked nice. Sites and access lanes are gravel, fairly roomy, and our site was fairly but not completely level. This is the highest rating I'll give a campground without fully paved pads and roads, so four stars is in no way a complaint. It's probably the only place I'd stay the next time I'm in Durango.
