Roan Mountain State Park, Roan Mountain, Tennessee

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $23.00
Overall Rating:

Visited this park again to enjoy the cooler mountain temperatures. The park is extremely well maintained. Roads and sites are paved, although tent site pads are pea gravel. Sites are level side-to-side. Sites 1 to 20 are premium RV sites, not eligible for any discounts. There is one pull-through site; the remainder are back-ins. These sites have a paved living area with a picnic table. Sites 21 to 40 are tent sites, perhaps the nicest tent sites we have ever seen. Sites 41 to 90 are located across the river and up the hill. Big rigs should not attempt these sites. All these sites are back-in, and most will require backing in uphill. The pictures do not really show how steep the grades are. Our site was a barely 12 foot wide strip of pavement with a gravel slope down to a picnic table. We had just enough room alongside the trailer under the awning for two small camp chairs. There is no cable or OTA TV and no cell service. However, there is very excellent WiFi throughout the campground. The staff have a Verizon network extender in the campground office, which provides a Verizon cell signal within a few feet of the office. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Beware the speed bumps! Crossing the speed bumps at more than creep speed will scramble the inside of your rig! There is a single dump station where the line is long as check-out time approaches on busy weekends. The park includes a nice swimming pool, amphitheater, and tennis and volleyball courts. This is a very popular park, so advance reservations are necessary for the more desirable sites. We will visit this park again. We camped at Roan Mountain State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Ivy's Cove RV Retreat, Russellville, Arkansas

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $34.00
Overall Rating:

Stopped here for overnight on way east. Campground is convenient to I-40, but far enough that there was no traffic noise. Road and sites are gravel. Sites are level and provide ample space for awnings and slides. Unisex restrooms and showers were new and very clean. WiFi worked well. It is best to call ahead for a reservation. This is a very pleasant and convenient overnight stop. We would return again. We camped at Ivy's Cove RV Retreat in a Travel Trailer.

Woody Mountain Campground & RV Park, Flagstaff, Arizona

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $48.00
Overall Rating:

Stayed at this campground for nearly a week. Campground is nestled in a mature pine forest, so there is lots of shade and wind whistling through the pines. Many sites are occupied by longer term campers seeking the cooler weather. The campground is located on the western side of town on old Route 66. They do not have a city water connection and must truck in all their water. Roads are gravel, and sites are gravel and crushed lava rock. Some leveling may be required. Sites are reasonably spaced, given that they are located in between the trees. Electrical breakers were located at a central panel, not at the individual site. Restroom and showers were old but clean. Campground staff were friendly and very helpful. A small laundry is open during office hours. There is a café in the office popular for breakfast and lunch. There is no cable TV, but major networks and PBS are available OTA. WiFi worked well, except in evenings when the campground was full. We enjoyed our stay at Woody Mountain and would return again.

Williams / Exit 167 / Circle Pines KOA, Williams, Arizona

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $60.00
Overall Rating:

We took our granddaughter to this CG for a few days just before she started 1st grade. With lots of activities, this is a great place for kids. The bounce pad, mini-golf, gem mining, swimming pool, "train" ride, and other activities keep the kids delightfully busy. The main entry road is paved, while other roads and sites are gravel. The CG is situated on the side of a gentle hill and the sites, all pull-thrus, are cut into the grade. The sites are not entirely level and leveling blocks are necessary. Check-in is easy and quick. Staff are friendly and provide an escort to the assigned site. Restrooms and showers are clean and well maintained. There is a large, well-stocked campground store and a grill serving meals on selected days. This is a large, very busy CG with high turnover and lots of children. Be aware that not all the activities are included in the price. Considering this CG was awarded the KOA President's Award, there were some glaring issues. There was a large pothole right at the intersection of the entry drive and the county road. During our stay that pothole was never filled, even though it would have taken only a couple of bags of asphalt patch to fill it. That was surprising for such a busy and high priced campground. The swimming pool had a cloudy appearance as if the filtration system was not working correctly. Other KOAs we have visited recently had sparkling clear pool water. Perhaps the issue was related to the fact that this CG has no local source of water; all water for the CG is trucked in daily. If we were traveling with children, we would stop at this campground again. No children, we would pass on by. We camped at Williams / Exit 167 / Circle Pines KOA in a Travel Trailer.

American RV Resort, Albuquerque, New Mexico

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $43.00
Overall Rating:

Overnight stay on our way west, and again on our way east two weeks later. The CG is conveniently located along I-40 on the west side of Albuquerque. Staff is friendly and check-in easy. An escort is provided to the assigned site. Roads and sites are concrete. Sites are well spaced and utility connections are convenient. Restrooms and showers are exceptionally clean and well maintained. We would stay here again. We camped at American RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Elk City / Clinton KOA, Canute, Oklahoma

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $39.00
Overall Rating:

Overnight stay on our way west. Roadways are paved, while sites are generally gravel. This is an older park but well maintained. There is adequate space between sites for slides and awnings. The campground is very close to I-40, although the traffic noise was not bothersome. There is a nice sparkling clear pool that looked inviting on a hot day. We stayed at this CG when eastbound two weeks later, and learned that after our earlier departure the area was struck by a severe storm. The office and restroom roofs were badly damaged and repairs were underway. There are no nearby services but the CG operates a café with good pizza and salads. This is a convenient overnight stop, and we would stay here again. We camped at Elk City / Clinton KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Sallisaw / Fort Smith West KOA, Sallisaw, Oklahoma

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

Overnight stay on our way west. We arrived after dark due to a delay with a tire blowout. We were met by one of the staff who was working late in the office that night. She directed us to our site, and also provided directions to a local store to replace our spare tire the following morning. This was a very pleasant overnight stay at a well-maintained campground. The location is far enough off that interstate that there was no traffic noise. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Sallisaw / Fort Smith West KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Parkers Crossroads RV Park and Campground, Yuma, Tennessee

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $33.00
Overall Rating:

On our way west we had planned to stop overnight at Parker's Crossroads, having had good experience there previously. This time, we experienced a blowout of a trailer tire which punctured a hole in the trailer floor. Finally arriving late in the evening after the office had closed, we were met by campground co-owner who explained that we were in luck, as the campground also offered RV repairs. True to his word, at 8 the following morning, he and another employee started work to patch the hole in the floor of our trailer and had us set to leave in less than an hour. We were certainly delighted with this pleasant and prompt service. You don't find such delightful and helpful folks very often. The campground is about a mile north of I-40, far enough to mute traffic noise yet not inconvenient. Most sites are gravel, although there are a few concrete pull-thrus. Water pressure is high, so be sure to use a pressure regulator. The campground staff are friendly and helpful. There is a very inviting crystal clear swimming pool. Parker's Crossroads is a very pleasant campground and we will undoubtedly stay there again. We camped at Parkers Crossroads RV Park and Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Baileys Point COE, Glasgow, Kentucky

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $12.00
Overall Rating:

All of the COE campgrounds we have visited have been excellent, and Bailey's Point is no exception. Check-in was quick and pleasant. Our campsite in the "A" loop was long and level, with a large patio area. Roads in the campground are paved, while the sites themselves are gravel. Restrooms and showers are older but clean and well maintained. Some sites have unobstructed lake views, while other sites are well shaded with the lake peeking through the leaves. Sites had water & electric hookups, a picnic table, a fire ring, and a lantern stand. There is no cable TV, but there are a multitude of OTA channels. Verizon cell service is adequate, but there is no WiFi. There were two dump stations. While the road to the campground is narrow, it is entirely adequate for travel at a reasonable speed. We enjoyed our stay and would definitely return. We camped at Baileys Point COE in a Travel Trailer.

Cumberland Mountain State Park, Crossville, Tennessee

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $39.00
Overall Rating:

Cumberland Mountain State Park is large and pleasant. During our visit for the Eclipse 2017 the campground was packed. The state chose to double the normal fees and require a 3-day stay for the event. Roads and sites in the campground are paved. Our site, listed on the web site as "level", was anything but, out of level side-to-side and front-to-back. We had six inches of blocks under one side and still were not level. The sites are only a 12 ft. wide strip of asphalt with no patio area. One side of the pad had an 8" to 10" drop off, a nasty surprise for the unwary. Friends staying in the next site were unable to level their Class C camper. Mud and trash on our site indicated it had not been cleaned in some time. Each site had water & electric hookups, a picnic table, a stand-up grill, and a fire ring. Restrooms and showers were clean and well maintained, but the rock-strewn and eroded paths to the restrooms were in need of maintenance. WiFi has been installed throughout the campground, and the Verizon cell signal is adequate. There is no cable TV and only one OTA TV channel. The park provides plenty of activities, including a baseball field, swimming pool, and golf course. We would return but only to a more level site.

Roan Mountain State Park, Roan Mountain, Tennessee

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $31.00
Overall Rating:

Roan Mountain State Park is a very popular camping destination. Campground staff are pleasant and helpful, and the campground is extremely well maintained. Roads and sites are paved. Sites 41 to 90 are located on a hillside. Big rigs should not attempt to even drive through that area. Sites in the lower level area are considered "premium" sites, commanding a higher price with no discounts. The Doe River is only a very small stream as it passes through the campground. It is hard to imagine the ferocity of the river during the flood event of 1998. The paved sites also provide a wider paved patio area. Each site has water & electric hookups and a campfire ring. There are no sewer hookups. There is no TV cable and no OTA TV reception. The park has recently installed WiFi repeaters throughout the campground and WiFi reception is excellent. There is no Verizon cell reception in the campground except for a small area surrounding the campground office. There is only one dump station for the entire park. We watched campers start lining up to dump on Sunday at 11:00 a.m., with the last camper finally departing at 2:30 p.m. Try to plan your departure to avoid that mad rush. Reservations are recommended, and are a must for the "premium" lower level sites. We enjoyed our stay and will return. We camped at Roan Mountain State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Hungry Mother State Park, Marion, Virginia

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

Hungry Mother State Park is well maintained and has lots of activities. We stayed at Camp Burson, formerly a private campground located on Rt. 16 below the dam, about a mile before reaching the main park entrance. Camp Burson has both full hookups and water/electric sites. The gravel sites are large, level, and well-spaced. The rest room/shower facilities are new, clean, and well maintained. There is no cable TV service, and an OTA antenna brings in only one station playing reruns of old shows. WiFi service is sporadic in the campground. Two sites, #9 & #11, have been converted to yurts. The park personnel were very friendly and helpful. There are additional camping facilities within the park for trailers and tents. The park has a large lake with a busy swimming beach, and boat & kayak rentals. There is a nice restaurant and local musician performances on Friday nights. There are many scenic hiking trails of various degrees of difficulty. During the summer, the park rangers offer many daily programs. The only downside is the premium camping fee without usual premium amenities (cable, WiFi). VA residents receive a discount, putting the price in a more acceptable range. We had a very pleasant stay and will visit again. We camped at Hungry Mother State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Good ice cream shop at drive-in theater in Marion. Route 16 north of the park is "Back of the Dragon" for motorcycle riders. It is a scenic drive, but with many hills and sharp curves presents a significant challenge pulling a trailer or in a big rig. Best to approach the park on Rt. 16 from Marion.

Natural Tunnel State Park, Duffield, Virginia

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $38.00
Overall Rating:

Natural Tunnel State Park is one of our favorite destinations. Everyone is friendly and the park is very well maintained. We stayed in the older Cove View section of the campground as the newer Lovers Leap section was already full by the time we made reservations. All sites have power and water hook-ups. There are no cable, WiFi or sewer hook-ups. Most major TV networks are available OTA. There is a large, attractive swimming pool in the park and pool passes are provided at check-in. This year the park has added four yurts in the Cove View section, very well appointed with large decks, but without power or water. The park also offers a number of cabins of various sizes. Restrooms and showers in both sections of the campground are very clean and well maintained. As noted in other reviews, the road to the top of the ridge where the campground is located is narrow and very steep, so gear down and be careful. Given the premium price but lack of premium amenities (sewer/cable/WiFi), our future visits to this park will be infrequent and short duration.

Dillon State Park, Nashport, Ohio

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $24.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed at Dillon State Park for a weekend family gathering. Campground roads are paved. Site pads are paved, 10 feet wide. Sites are widely spaced with plenty of room for slides and awnings. Sites have electric hookups only (30/50). There are water spigots available throughout the campground for filling water tanks on arrival. There are two dump stations located near the campground entrance/exit. Some sites are shaded, others in full sun. There is no cable connection. A few TV channels can be picked up OTA. There is no WiFi throughout the campground, but there is a hotspot at the camp store. Restrooms and showers were older but reasonably clean. There were a number of pesky yellow jackets in our campsites during the weekend, and a couple of our campers were stung. Otherwise, Dillon State Park is a very pleasant campground and we would visit again. We camped at Dillon State Park in a Travel Trailer.
