Dakota Ridge RV Park, Golden, Colorado

Date of Stay: October, 2016 - $64.00
Overall Rating:      

Contrary to claims this is not a big rig friendly park. Inordinate number of rules and fines. Locked trash dumpsters with $25 customer fine if trash left and scattered. Rude golf cart "police" watching for visitors who have not paid although perhaps only stopping by for a few minutes visit. $5/car plus $5/person. Overpriced rates. NONREFUNDABLE 50% reservation required. Pool and spa closed. No CATV. SATV difficult from many sites. Locals strong.

This was our favored park for many years, but it has become so crowded with too large of RVs extending into the streets, plus other vehicles also encroaching into the streets. So customer unfriendly, and so overpriced, that we no longer recommend staying there. This deterioration has been gradual over the past 4 or 5 years, but has really gotten bad over the last 2 years with the advent of rude "golf cart police" out enfircing rules with no common sense. We will not be returning after using this park for over 15 years. We camped at Dakota Ridge RV Park in a Motorhome.

Jolly Acres RV Park and Storage, Saint George, South Carolina

Date of Stay: June, 2013 - $35.00
Overall Rating:      

One of the better overnight stop RV parks along I-95 in SC. Our site was a long pull thru so we did not have to unhook the toad. Site is hard packed gravel and so level we didn't deploy the jacks. Sat view of sky was unobstructed. Quiet! No trains or traffic noise. Safe feeling place off the beaten oath. We will return. We camped at Jolly Acres RV Park and Storage in a Motorhome.

Buffalo Bob's RV Park, Lawton, Oklahoma

Date of Stay: October, 2012 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

New May 2012. Easy access and near I-44. Paved roads. Level concrete pads. Plenty of swing room and spacing between sites. Modern pod with hookups. Pull-through long enough to not unhook our Jeep from 41' MH. IMO top park in the Lawton area. No trains or highway noises! We camped at Buffalo Bob's RV Park in a Motorhome.

Barstow / Calico KOA, Yermo, California

Date of Stay: September, 2012 - $35.00
Overall Rating:      

Good overnight park. Convenient to I-15. Dirt roads some very dusty segments. Pea gravel site (#45) so level that jacks were not needed. Caution for most of the light/WiFi antenna poles that curve out over the middle of the streets. Overhead clearance is 13'4". Some customers pull in so far that their rigs stick out into the interior streets and some motorhomes do not pull forward enough so their Toad is in the street. These cause some close maneuvering to get out if leaving early. We would stay here again. We camped at Barstow / Calico KOA in a Motorhome.

LVM Resort, Las Vegas, Nevada

Date of Stay: September, 2012 - $29.00
Overall Rating:      

A true high end "10" motorcoach only resort. Beautiful landscaping with an abundance of palms and other tropical plants. Club house is elegant. Multiple shower, bath, swimming pool facilities so no one walks very far. Granite countertops in all facilities. Wide paved streets and long wide concrete pads. Easy back in with lots of swing space. We will return at first opportunity. Rate reflects 50% off-season military discount for unimproved lot. We camped at LVM Resort in a Motorhome.

Solstice Motorcoach Resort, Mesquite, Nevada

Date of Stay: September, 2012 - $56.00
Overall Rating:      

New, clean, and beautiful mesa top setting. Easy access on paved roads and long wide pea gravel sites. We consider this to be the best park to stay in when visiting Mesquite. WiFi is available, but only in the office/lounge area. We camped at Solstice Motorcoach Resort in a Motorhome.

Watchman Campground (NPS Campground), Zion National Park, Utah

Date of Stay: September, 2012 - $9.00
Overall Rating:      

The plus is location! Convenient for visiting the NP. Some narrow asphalt paved roads, but in poor state of repair. Sites are dirty and dusty plus lots of ants. Brush, weeds, and tree limbs not removed or pruned to extent that RVs can be scratched. Access to dump station and fresh water is "one way" with no convenient turnaround area for motor homes. This park suffers from neglect and lack of grounds maintenance. We will not return, but will stay in one of the much better privately run RV parks that require a short drive to the NP. We departed early, but because of the circumstances, the unused days paid were refunded. We camped at Watchman Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

RV Express RV Park, Marshfield, Missouri

Date of Stay: September, 2012 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

NOW OPEN! New owners, same phone number and park features. Easy access off I-44 Exit 100. Great for big rigs for overnight in long paved pull through. The earlier comment about access is not accurate based on our experience of using this park several times before it closed and now that it has reopened. We camped at RV Express RV Park in a Motorhome.

Portal RV Resort and Campground, Moab, Utah

Date of Stay: August, 2012 - $52.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed in the ownership section on the south side of the park. Wide paved access interior street and easy access for a big rig MH to the level concrete pads which are long and wide. Beautiful landscaping. Pool house/showers is first class with granite counter tops. No other RV park in the area comes close for ambiance and value. The north section (original area) has been upgraded considerably and is also a desirable choice. We will return at first opportunity. We camped at Portal RV Resort and Campground in a Motorhome.

Dakota Ridge RV Park, Golden, Colorado

Date of Stay: July, 2012 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

We have been using this park every year for the past nine years. Usually we stay here several weeks to visit family in the area. Regrettably, the manager was changed two years ago, and the park has deteriorated in several aspects since. That said, I am familiar with all of the Denver area RV parks and still rate this one as the best. Paved roads and concrete or asphalt pads which are mostly pull thru's. New commuter rail station is close and will open soon to provide easy mass transit to downtown Denver. We camped at Dakota Ridge RV Park in a Motorhome.

Independence RV Park, Independence, Iowa

Date of Stay: July, 2012 - $15.00
Overall Rating:      

Park manager was pleasant to deal with as a plus. That said, this is a dirt road, dirt sites, dry grass, run down kind of RV park. Lots of dog waste, mostly dried, was all over the dry grass area along side of our site. During our stay, the park was at least 75% filled with long term tenants who were working in the area. Regret to say that many of the reviews are favorably exaggerated, or the reviewers' standards are a bit too low. Trucks and cars were parked out into the rather narrow access roads to the extent that we had to back out of our pull-through on the south side of the shower building. We will not return and will instead drive a few miles further and dry camp at the casino. We camped at Independence RV Park in a Motorhome.

Buffalo County Fairgrounds, Kearney, Nebraska

Date of Stay: July, 2012 - $15.00
Overall Rating:      

If rated against all electric only facilities, rating would be a "10". This is an easy in and out of the fairground parking lot and any size rig can easily fit with no obstructions to enter or depart. The area is a large, level gravel parking lot that is immediately on your right as you turn east off Ave N through the Fairground's gate. CAUTION if you are following a GPS with the address -- DO NOT turn off Ave N until you get to the main gate which is directly into the parking lot. The gate is very wide with a bordering white wood fence with houses along west side of the street. There are eight light poles, spaced well apart in the parking lot and electrical hookups are mounted on the poles. Most of the poles had multiple 20, 30, and 50 amp receptacles. There are also two sites with 30 amp power and a water hookup on the grass alongside the fence and trees parallel to Ave N. There is a free dump station. Power was good, and it was very quiet here.There are no assigned spaces; it's just a large, well groomed gravel lot that can easily hold 50 rigs for dry camping if the power sites are taken. You just park wherever you want and then go into the Fair Office and pay or use the drop box next to the office door. Dry camping is free. We camped at Buffalo County Fairgrounds in a Motorhome.

Branches of Niagara Campground and Resort, Grand Island, New York

Date of Stay: June, 2012 - $79.00
Overall Rating:      

Resort? Misnomer! Gravel dusty narrow access road within park, dirt/gravel-in-dirt pads. Three main facets of this facility. 1) Activities for children are best we've experienced. Great variety! 2) The management. Effort to please leaves little to no rules enforcement. Might help a few, but to the detriment of most. Allow cars, pickup trucks, and toads to be parked extending into the interior access roads. Or parked every which way in the entry road to the park adjacent to the park and on the interior roads. On busy summer weekends a big rig cannot enter or depart without asking owners to move their vehicles. Wash rooms and baths are not policed either. 3) The RV site experience. Price escalates to $85 on weekends. Size of reserved pull through was exaggerated. Barely long enough for 41" MH. Toads park on grass. No SATV because of the trees. No cable TV. Local OTA TVis difficult because of trees. Water pressure measured an unsatisfactory 31 psi. On busy weekends the washroom and showers and restrooms became filthy messes mainly because they are undersized for the user population. In the evening, we could not stay outside and enjoy a campfire because of raw sewage smell. Narrow interior roads often blocked by other tenants vehicles hinder big rig movement. In short an overpriced RV park with an overly flattering web site and description. It is not a RV "resort". Of 31 RV parks that we've stayed in this summer, this is the worst. However, for tents, and small TTs, or small 5vers the park is acceptable. We will not return. We camped at Branches of Niagara Campground and Resort in a Motorhome.

Mr. D's RV & Camper Park, Ozark, Alabama

Date of Stay: May, 2012 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

We've used all three of the big rig RV parks along this stretch of 231 as we travel to NW Alabama from Florida. We travel in a 40' DP MH. This is the best for an overnight stop based on ease of entry and exit, swing room, level long pads that do not require unhooking the toad, full hookups, and quiet after 10pm. For the price, it's a bargain. We camped at Mr. D's RV & Camper Park in a Motorhome.

Naples Motorcoach Resort, Naples, Florida

Date of Stay: February, 2011 - $50.00
Overall Rating:      

Arguably, the top RV park in the Naples area. Many claim resort but few live up to that expected standard. This one does, and, we've stayed in, or seen most of the popular Naples parks. Immaculately clean, professionally landscaped, and maintained, plenty of maneuver room, smooth paved roads, and ample elbow room on the sites. Our back in site was easy to back into. Two minor issues. One the WiFi was not yet fixed during our ten-day stay. Secondly, the entry gate was initially set for to be open for ten seconds and was experiencing some excessive bounce back on opening. One evening, it hit our driver's side mirror. The gate guard reported it and early the next morning the maintenance person fixed it. The resort's management clearly took quick corrective action and was very apologetic. If you prefer the high end parks this one will not disappoint. Our rate reflected a group of eight pricing. We plan to return for several days again next year. We camped at Naples Motorcoach Resort in a Motorhome.
