Lakewood RV Resort (55+ park), Flat Rock, North Carolina

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $19.00
Overall Rating:      

Rate reflects seasonal rate. This was our second summer here and nothing has changed since my 2015 review. Still a wonderful place to spend the summer. Except for one round of internet problems, everything was top-notch. Management does things "right" at this park. Wish I could give a 9 3/4! We camped at Lakewood RV Resort (55+ park) in a Fifth Wheel.

Lakewood RV Resort (55+ park), Flat Rock, North Carolina

Date of Stay: August, 2015 - $16.00
Overall Rating:      

Rate reflects seasonal stay. I'm giving them a 9 3/4; I wish I could give them a 10, but I have to deduct for the Wi-Fi that was bad at times and the fact that there is no mountain view from inside the park. Other than that, I have nothing but good things to say about Lakeside. The park is nicely wooded, though there are sites that are out in the open and ideal for satellite. Adequate number of cable channels, but some weren't as clear as others. Our spot was level with good hookups. Water pressure and electrical were fine. The folks who run this park work hard to keep it neat and clean, constantly mowing, trimming and performing maintenance; they are very responsive to any problems. The location is excellent, with good access to the highway, stores, gas stations, and just about anything you could possibly want in Hendersonville. Asheville is about 30-40 minutes away. There is a faint hum from the highway, but it's not bad. The park is extremely quiet at night - very restful. The seasonal pool is large, clean and, best of all, HEATED! Laundry room is clean and fairly reasonable - $1.75 wash, $1.25 dry and is open 24 hours. Bathrooms and showers are always spotless. The office is open every day but Sunday and the people who work there are always helpful and friendly. There is a clubhouse with TV, lending library, pool table and two big meeting rooms and a covered outdoor deck; coffee and donuts on Tuesday mornings and a happy hour every Wednesday evening where folks bring food to share. Occasional BBQ's and other events. Activities include luncheon trips, crafts, bridge, bingo, mah-jong, music. There is a very nice work-out room with treadmills, elliptical, stationary bike, weight machine and free weights that is also open 24 hours a day (I lost 10 pounds!) We had a great summer and can't wait to come back! We camped at Lakewood RV Resort (55+ park) in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Two miles to a huge Ingles super market and a fantastic park for walking, biking, dogs welcome. For Mexican food, I'd recommend Tequilas. Steak is good at O'Binions. "Comfort food" is fantastic at the Moose Café. About 13 miles to the airport and even more big box stores.

New Green Acres RV Park , Walterboro, South Carolina

Date of Stay: June, 2015 - $28.00
Overall Rating:      

We stay here every couple of years on our way north or back south. Convenient to the highway and places to eat. Highway noise can be bad. Long pull-throughs, easy in-and-out. Satisfactory for an overnight stay. Facilities are clean and personnel are friendly and helpful. There is a small pool but it frequently has been closed when we were there. We camped at New Green Acres RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Ocala Sun RV Resort, Ocala, Florida

Date of Stay: October, 2014 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

A bit expensive for what is essentially a grass parking lot, but it is convenient for traveling on I-75. The grass is well-maintained. Our site was surprisingly level. No table at our site (I saw a lot of tables stacked up on the property so maybe they are getting ready to paint them). Site was long enough, but would be considered narrow if all the sites were filled. Park is about a half mile off I-75, but you could still hear the traffic a bit. There is a clean pool with a nice pool deck, but the spa part of the pool was not working. Cable was good but Wi-Fi frequently did not work. We camped at Ocala Sun RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Avalon Landing RV Park, Milton, Florida

Date of Stay: October, 2014 - $43.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a very nice park, consisting of two parts, separated by a lagoon. You can walk between the two parts, but have to go out on the road to drive to the other part. Most sites are back-in, but easy to get into as the paved roads are wide. Gravel sites. Lots of well-maintained grass. Park is on a scenic bayou with a launch ramp, so you can launch a small boat for fishing or rent a canoe or kayak. Fishing is also allowed in the lagoon from the bank or bridge; we saw fish constantly jumping. There is a small clean pool and clubhouse in the main section. Two clean restroom/laundry buildings, one for each area. Easy access from I-10 and not far from restaurants and shopping. Owners are very friendly and helpful. Cable was adequate; I didn't have much luck with the Wi-Fi. Propane available and you can wash your RV or car for a small fee. We've stayed in other parks in the Milton area and I think this is the best. We would definitely stay here again when in the area. We camped at Avalon Landing RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Gulf Haven RV Resort (formerly Gulf Haven Campground), Gulfport, Mississippi

Date of Stay: September, 2014 - $36.00
Overall Rating:      

This park is OK for a couple of days. The part we stayed in is essentially a gravel parking lot with utilities. Sites were rather short but wide enough, and didn't have tables. Wi-Fi and cable were adequate. It's a short walk to the beach and you can see the beach from your site. There is no pool and the gulf water is dark and not something I would swim in. The beach is nice for walking, though. There are loud trains nearby but they didn't bother us much at night. There is not much noise from the main road. The folks in the office were very friendly and made us feel welcome. I did not visit the restrooms or the laundry room, so cannot comment on them but I'm sure they were clean, as the owners seem to take pride in their park. Convenient to shopping and restaurants. We camped at Gulf Haven RV Resort (formerly Gulf Haven Campground) in a Fifth Wheel.

Whispering Meadow RV Park, Westlake, Louisiana

Date of Stay: September, 2014 - $35.00
Overall Rating:      

Very nice small park with easy access. Pull-through was long enough for our fiver and the truck. Very level. Water pressure, electric, and cable fine. Wi-Fi acceptable. Bathrooms clean. Small laundry room. No pool. Park is immaculately maintained and the owner is friendly and helpful and obviously takes great pride in his park. Far enough from I-10 to be fairly quiet. There is a large park across the street. We camped at Whispering Meadow RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

San Antonio KOA, San Antonio, Texas

Date of Stay: September, 2014 - $36.00
Overall Rating:      

This is probably the best KOA we've stayed in to date. Clean and well laid-out. The personnel are very friendly and helpful. Power, water pressure, cable and Wi-Fi were good. Lots of shade. Pool was sparkling clean and large, with a very nice pool deck. There is access out the back of the park to a greenway path for walking or biking. Convenient to shopping, attractions and highways. Clean, reasonably-priced laundry room. Our only disappointment was the pizza they sell in the lobby; I can't recommend it. We camped at San Antonio KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Hilltop RV Park, Fort Stockton, Texas

Date of Stay: September, 2014 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

Good park for a one-night stop; easy on and off I-10. Sites are of adequate size and easy to access. The park is dry light-colored dirt and some gravel so there is lots of dust to be tracked in. No cable, but several channels could be pulled in on the antenna. I couldn't get Wi-Fi to work, even on the front porch of the office, until late at night. Clean pool with a nice pool deck. Clean individual bathroom/showers. Small laundry, reasonably-priced. Since the park is on a hill, you get a great view of the Texas sunsets. We would stay here again if passing through this area. We camped at Hilltop RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Little Vineyard RV Park & Resort, Deming, New Mexico

Date of Stay: September, 2014 - $26.00
Overall Rating:      

Park is well-maintained, but essentially is just a big gravel parking lot. Back two rows seem to be the transient spots as they are the only ones with 50 amp. Sites are wide and long enough for big rigs. Standing water when it rains. Nice indoor pool and small hot tub. Rec room with two pool tables, a lounge and a big social hall with kitchen. Bathrooms and laundries were clean. Laundry machines were inexpensive and worked well. Cable went in and out but it might have been because of the rain. Wi-Fi was iffy. There was some highway and train noise but not excessive. Convenient to shopping and local attractions. Very easy to get in and out and has good access to I-10. Office personnel very friendly. We camped at Little Vineyard RV Park & Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Benson KOA, Benson, Arizona

Date of Stay: September, 2014 - $44.00
Overall Rating:      

A little expensive for off-season but otherwise an adequate park. Park is not particularly attractive, but it's far enough off the interstate and train tracks to be very quiet. Owners are very nice and helpful and work constantly to keep the place up. Small pool was clean, residential-type hot tub was not operating. Bathrooms were rustic but clean. Laundry was just OK, but was inexpensive. The cable was adequate, but the Wi-Fi didn't work very well. Sites are dirt and gravel, adequate in length and width for a big rig. Hookups are well-placed. There were a lot of ant hills and we were glad none got into our rig. We had the whole front of the park to ourselves a couple of nights. Convenient to shopping in town and local attractions. It looks to be like it might be the best park in town. We camped at Benson KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Mesa Spirit RV Resort (55+ park), Mesa, Arizona

Date of Stay: September, 2014 - $50.00
Overall Rating:      

Huge park...you sort of feel like you are in a maze. It was like a ghost town the few days we were there and was very quiet, but I imagine it would be hopping during the "season" when the snowbirds show up. It's not really set up for transients, though there is plenty of room for them during the off season. The office was closed when we showed up at 4:30, but an employee found us a spot we could fit in. Fantastic pool area - two large swimming pools and four "therapy" pools ranging from cool to hot. The pools appear to be open very late, which is nice. Huge clean very reasonably-priced laundry with a large outdoor area for hanging clothes. Bathrooms were very clean. It looks like there is a billiards room and other social areas. Convenient to highways and shopping. Cable and Wi-Fi worked OK. The power pedestal was pretty old but power was adequate and we didn't have any problems. They offer trash pickup only once a week and I couldn't find a trash dumpster. No shade; landscaping consists of palm trees and cacti, and with all that paving it was really hot in September. Sites are gravel with paved patio areas/parking. No picnic tables. Park is kept very neat and clean. We camped at Mesa Spirit RV Resort (55+ park) in a Fifth Wheel.

Oasis Las Vegas RV Resort, Las Vegas, Nevada

Date of Stay: September, 2014 - $50.00
Overall Rating:      

This is another time I wish I could give a park a 9 1/2 rating. I have only one complaint about this park and that is that for $50 a day, I expect free Wi-Fi or at least an hour or two a day free. Otherwise, WOWZA! This park has the most beautiful pool area I've ever seen at an RV park and it was open late, which was very much appreciated as I love swimming and soaking in the hot tub under the stars. There are separate family and adult pools. There is also a nice hot tub. Landscaping was beautiful. The check-in area looked like you were checking into a hotel; very nice. Personnel were efficient and helpful. Store, café, lounge, outdoor seating. The laundries were clean and reasonably-priced. The bathhouses had private shower rooms with very clean tiled large showers and lots of hot water. Cable was good until the rain came and then it had some problems. Water pressure strong and power was adequate to run both air conditioners. Sites are concrete with either gravel or a patch of grass between sites. Some shaded sites, but most are in full sun. There is a fenced dog park that you reach by walking out of the park. There is also an area of sites where pets are not allowed. Park is located about four miles south of the end of the Strip. You can walk a couple of blocks and catch a bus to the Strip. It would be nice to have a shuttle from the campground to the Strip a few times a day. Also convenient to shopping, the airport and highways. Minimal noise from the highway; otherwise quiet at night. This is our new favorite Las Vegas park. We camped at Oasis Las Vegas RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Santee Lakes Recreation Preserve, Santee, California

Date of Stay: September, 2014 - $45.00
Overall Rating:      

This would be a 9 1/2 if possible, maybe a 9 3/4. This park does it right! The only thing that could be improved would be adding some gravel to the sites; they are currently sandy dirt that is constantly tracked into the camper. Drives are paved. Sites are adequately large. Two pools and a hot tub that are sparkling clean. Bathhouses and laundry are kept very clean. Personnel are friendly and efficient. Wi-Fi works most of the time (and that's about all I find I can expect these days), and cable is adequate. The park is convenient to the San Diego Trolley terminus in Santee. Shopping is nearby. I'm told that fishing in the lakes is good. Park is quiet at night, even on a holiday weekend; once there was a noisy party after quiet hours and it was quickly handled by park personnel. We were thoroughly pleased with our experience at Santee Lakes and would love to come back. We camped at Santee Lakes Recreation Preserve in a Fifth Wheel.

Lake Elsinore Marina & RV Resort, Lake Elsinore, California

Date of Stay: August, 2014 - $35.00
Overall Rating:      

This park was a good bargain for the price. The park is on a lake, but all lake-front spots are taken up by three rows of park-model cabins. At best, you have a sight of the lake between the cabins. There is a lake-front volleyball park, gazebo, and benches for sitting and enjoying the view, which is beautiful especially at sunset. There is no swimming in the lake from this park; it looks like you have to use the beach next door. The lake water wasn't particularly attractive, so that was no problem. Boat launch is in the park next door, too. Park is convenient to shopping and highways. There is a very large sparkling clean pool with a deep end that is open until 9:00 p.m. Laundry room is clean and reasonable. Did not use bathrooms or showers, so I can't report on them. The park seems to be mostly perms and seasonals with all the accoutrements (storage sheds, fences, etc) but most all sites are well maintained. Park was quiet at night. The folks in the office are nice but somewhat disorganized. The lady who checked us in insisted that our site was a pull-though, though a wooden post at the back of it prevented any possibility of it being a pull-through. Site was big enough and we had no problem backing in. I'm not sure there are actually any pull-throughs; the ones I saw looked to be "tandem" sites. Sites are gravel. Cable was adequate with a small number of stations. Wi-Fi was also adequate. There may have been a security gate at one time, but none exists now, so anyone can drive in. Electric power and water pressure was good. We would stay here again. We camped at Lake Elsinore Marina & RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
