Blackstone North RV Park, Fresno, California

Date of Stay: November, 2016 - $44.00
Overall Rating:      

We consider the ability to get a reasonably sound night of sleep a critical factor in RV parks. This park, well quiet within, had a lot of outside noise. Close to the highway, we were kept awake much of the night by motorcycles zooming along. Earlier in the evening, it was airplanes. This park is good for one night stay. There is no dog park, though there were dogs everywhere. The public bathrooms are basically in a newish shed. The park is primarily for long term RVs, though they are mostly very high end rvs. The internet was excellent. We camped at Blackstone North RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

White Tank Regional Park, Waddell, Arizona

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

This is a beautifully maintained park with huge spaces. We were here on a Monday in the fall and it was quite empty. It is super quiet here. This is one of the prettiest campsites we've been too, and we've been on the road for 3 months. Do note that the actual campground is quite a ways (miles) from the entrance to the park. Just keep going period and going. We camped at White Tank Regional Park in a Travel Trailer.

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

Date of Stay: October, 2016 - $35.00
Overall Rating:      

This is one of those "you need ear plugs" RV parks. We were placed in the very back in a pull-thru. It turns out there is a huge commercial operation over the fence, and they started trucks up around 4-5 a.m., letting engines idle right across the fence from us. It was incredibly noisy, the noisiest place we've stayed during our 3 month, 29-state trip. Add a nearby train crossing to that which woke us in the middle of the night. Top it off with a nearby drum corps (a local high school, I think) starting practice at 7:45 a.m. and it was a sleepless night. This is a well-managed and maintained park. Just not quiet during our sleeping hours (at night). We camped at Sunny Acres RV Park (55+ park) in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Don't stay in the last aisle (the AA, BB, CC, etc.) aisle because that puts you right next to the commercial operation and the noise. It might seem good during the day to be at the back of the lot, but on weekdays, they start early -- I would estimate the noise began around 4-5 a.m. Weekends might be o.k. as they're likely closed then.

Topspot RV Park at La Mirada Inn (formerly La Mirada RV Park), Belen, New Mexico

Date of Stay: October, 2016 - $35.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a quiet park that is close to the freeway but that gets little freeway noise. We checked in on a Sunday so the only way to get access to the Wi-Fi was to call the phone number, which we didn't do. They do offer discounts for travel club and veterans of $5. We had a great view from our spot in the park. The park is well kept very clean. It is also under construction so they're obviously trying to improve it even more. We camped at Topspot RV Park at La Mirada Inn (formerly La Mirada RV Park) in a Travel Trailer.

This is a great place to park if you want to see the region. It is not just a one-night type of RV park, because it has a laundry room and it's really quite a nice place to walk around. We were surprised that Belen is quite a large town

Cactus RV Park, Tucumcari, New Mexico

Date of Stay: October, 2016 - $26.00
Overall Rating:      

Bring earplugs. This gravel and rock parking lot of an RV park is near railroad tracks. The sites are close together. There are few trees. This RV park is strictly for an overnight stay. It's very Spartan. There are no picnic tables . There is a huge overflow lot in the back that is great for walking dogs. We camped at Cactus RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Eagles View RV Park, Sand Springs, Oklahoma

Date of Stay: October, 2016 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

Bring earplugs. In the middle of the night trains started going through. They were very close by and woke me each time. The park, which is primarily a long term storage/cheap full timer location, also gets a lot of road noise. There is a lot of stickery grass. If you don't mind loud trains, this place is fine for one nighters or as a base. Friendly on site manager. We camped at Eagles View RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Bodnarosa Motel and Campgrounds, Berwick, Pennsylvania

Date of Stay: October, 2016 - $38.00
Overall Rating:      

Beautiful park, lots of trees. Near a train so it is a bit noisy sometimes. No laundry room. Wifi was supposed to work but didn't -- probably too many people streaming movies (this is quite typical, in our experience, at many parks). Office has a nice little store. We camped at Bodnarosa Motel and Campgrounds in a Travel Trailer.

Seaport RV Resort, Old Mystic, Connecticut

Date of Stay: October, 2016 - $45.00
Overall Rating:      

This place is pretty quiet, not near any trains or highways. The lack of full hookups is a negative. There was no fenced dog area. The internet didn't work in spaces 1 or 2; apparently, we were too far from the router. Back in spaces (at least ours, 1 and 2) were huge; we didn't have to disconnect. We camped at Seaport RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Old Chatham RV Resort, South Dennis, Massachusetts

Date of Stay: October, 2016 - $55.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed here in late September/early October. The park is primarily for seasonal mobile homes and permanent RVs; very few were actually occupied this late in the season (the Cape is a "summer location"). There are few temporary "RV" spots here. However, we were very happy with this park because it is in a super-quiet area and is full of beautiful trees; it is a lovely park. The seasonal RVs are mostly quite nice ones, too. This is a well-kept park. Though sites are a little close together, we had plenty of room for our 30 foot trailer and large truck. There as plenty of room to open our slides. There is a playground here and a nice walking path. There is basically no wifi-- you have to go to the club house or something like that; I just hotspotted into my AT&T phone, which worked fine. We camped at Old Chatham RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

This is a great place to park and explore the Cape. Even locals don't know this place is here, tucked away as it is in South Dennis. (We have a friend who owns a resort of cabins in Chatham and he's spent half his entire 60 years here, and he didn't know it existed.)

Ashuelot River Campground, Swanzey, New Hampshire

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $45.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a beautiful park on a huge acreage of lawn surrounded by huge trees, right next to a river.

We have been to dozens of RV parks in the last couple of months and hundreds over the past 30 years, and this is a new favorite. What sets this park apart?

Two things: one, the owners don't just put out a bunch of fliers about local places to visit. When we were checked in, the owner found out what we specifically like to do and offered advice that fit our preferences. Second, this RV park has an off-leash, non-fenced area way off on the side of the park (away from sites) which was perfect for our 3 large dogs to stretch their legs. The owners actually tell you about that, too.

There is some highway noise nearby, but it was insignificant and not noticeable. We camped at Ashuelot River Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Elkdale RV Resort, Salamanca, New York

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

This is a small park on a huge mowed lot. We had huge spaces (we are traveling with friends in their own RV). We enjoyed having such an enormous amount of space to park our RV and also to walk our 3 large dogs. Much of the property is mowed but isn't used for RVs, and that was great for our dogs. The owner was very nice. We camped at Elkdale RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Moose River Campground, St Johnsbury, Vermont

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $36.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a beautifully maintained park in a location excellent for exploring Vermont. We were right up against Moose River, which was lovely. Wifi was generally strong until after breakfast, when the entire park was probably trying to access it. We spent 3 nights here. The owners have created a couple of super-handy guides to the area -- what to see, where to find the grocery store, etc., that we haven't seen anywhere else in our 26-state trip. The only downside to this park-- and the only reason it didn't get a rare 10 from me-- is the logging operation across the street. They start up around 6 a.m. and operate all day, turning what could be a perfectly peaceful RV park into one with a lot of background noise. It beats a nearby highway or train any day, though, as they do stop at the end of the work day and it is super quiet here at night. We camped at Moose River Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Berlin RV Park and Campground, Millersburg, Ohio

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $38.00
Overall Rating:      

This campground is adjacent to a very busy highway with a lot of huge trucks using the engine brake. We were in a pull-thru on the front row for our first night, which meant we got very little sleep. We moved to the back of the park (space 24) for our next 2 nights and it was significantly quieter. It was a convenient and central place to stay for 3 nights to visit the Amish community. We camped at Berlin RV Park and Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This was a nice park, close to St. Ignace but away from the main drag. It was a convenient base from which to see Macinac Island. Using a/c costs an extra $3/day.

Tips for other Campers:

Big rigs might have difficulty here. Mostly, this RV park was full of large fifth wheels and travel trainers; there were few large motorhomes. Spaces are fairly close together so trying to get a big rig in here could be difficult. If you get the front row, you get an ocean view but you also get much more wind and noise. However, if you park in the back you get a lot more lawn, it is quiet, but no lake view.
