Santa Fe KOA, Santa Fe, New Mexico

Date of Stay: June, 2011 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

Pluses: Wi-Fi, shaded patio/bbq area, friendly staff, quiet and scenic view of Apache Canon, proximity to nearby Civil War battlefields. Minuses: It's adjacent to a retaining pond (smell), and there is no pool. Overall this is a great place to camp when exploring nearby Santa Fe. I'd highly recommend it for tenters or RV'ers. We camped at Santa Fe KOA in a Tent.

Storrie Lake State Park, Las Vegas, New Mexico

Date of Stay: June, 2011 - $10.00
Overall Rating:      

For the price, a good place. Like others, I did sense a 'locals' preference. Oddly, the check in staff required no registration or filling out forms. They just wanted the fee. Said they couldn't reserve my site, that I had to set up immediately. Good museum at park entrance. Lake very low, very high wind. Nearby highway was not noisy. Avoid using the state park reservation system. They don't tell you that there are walk in sites available. We camped at Storrie Lake State Park in a Tent.

Ajax Country Livin' RV Park at I-49, Marthaville, Louisiana

Date of Stay: October, 2010 - $12.00
Overall Rating:      

Ideal spot for taking in nearby Civil War sites. Conveniently located off interstate, yet quiet. Facilities were clean, well kept. Owners were super friendly and helpful. They need to add a few more tent sites and improve the existing ones. The tent area is in a grove to the rear of the campground. Nearest stores/gas are some distance away (not at the interstate exit), so make sure you stock up before arriving. We camped at Ajax Country Livin' RV Park at I-49 in a Tent.

Martin Creek Lake State Park, Tatum, Texas

Date of Stay: October, 2010 - $13.00
Overall Rating:      

The primitive sites are not drive-up. They require a hike over a bridge. Well patrolled, gates locked 10-8. Staff friendly, helpful. Good for an overnight, but would not want to spend any more time next to the power plant, with all it's bells, whistles, buzzers, and continuous drone. Visit the Harmony Hill cemetery while here, a beautiful place just up the hill. We camped at Martin Creek Lake State Park in a Tent.

Baton Rouge KOA, Denham Springs, Louisiana

Date of Stay: October, 2010 - $27.00
Overall Rating:      

A typical KOA with all the bells, whistles, and prices that gouge. Nonetheless the location is convenient, interstate noise not noticeable, the staff were helpful and responsive. The only bad thing was the mower noise from a neighboring school: they were cutting grass before it was light out in the morning. Woke me up at 6. Overall a great place for an overnight stay for a tenter. We camped at Baton Rouge KOA in a Tent.

Bergeron's on the Bayou Campground, Jarreau, Louisiana

Date of Stay: October, 2010 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

I was stopped at the door when I asked if tenters were allowed. So much for "warm Cajun hospitality." Owner said there were no bathrooms to accommodate tenters. If you are a tent camper, don't bother driving to this hard to find place: it's a waste of time. We camped at Bergeron's on the Bayou Campground in a Tent.

Indian Creek Recreation Area Louisiana, Woodworth, Louisiana

Date of Stay: October, 2010 - $8.00
Overall Rating:      

Tent sites are a pullout on a dirt round in the forest. No tables, fire rings, etc. Vault toilets will need a car to get to. Peaceful but very primitive. Check in staff was not too friendly or helpful. Overall good value for the price. Tenters must drive to RV area to use showers: about a 2 mile drive. We camped at Indian Creek Recreation Area Louisiana in a Tent.

Springfield / Route 66 KOA, Springfield, Missouri

Date of Stay: July, 2010 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

Way overpriced for a tenter. Pros: air conditioned camp store; covered community area; convenience to Wilson's Creek Battlefield. Cons: noisy trains adjacent to campground. As with all KOAs, it's all about the $. We camped at Springfield / Route 66 KOA in a Tent.

Not what I expected from state park. Fish-camp atmosphere. Noisy neighbors. The Ranger/CG Host presence was minimal. Sites appear not well maintained. We camped at Hugh White State Park in a Tent.

Columbus-Belmont State Park, Columbus, Kentucky

Date of Stay: July, 2010 - $18.00
Overall Rating:      

Superb campground. History buffs will enjoy - old graveyard, Civil War displays and fortifications, museum. Grounds very well maintained. Staff extremely helpful. Rather isolated, so make sure you bring it all. It's a little cooler up on the bluffs, but fans are necessary for summertime tent camping. Plenty of deadwood for fires. We camped at Columbus-Belmont State Park in a Tent Trailer.

Bootheel RV Park and Event Center (formerly Hayti-Portageville RV Park, Portageville, Missouri

Date of Stay: July, 2010 - $28.00
Overall Rating:      

Convenient to New Madrid history, easy to find off I-55. Clean facilities, including pool. Closest restaurants/gas 6 mi away. Drawbacks: Wi-Fi is rationed to 2 tickets (60 mins) a night (not sure why). Also, the air conditioned community center ("rally room") was kept under lock and key and not available (again, not sure why). Pricey for what you get, but it's about the only show in town. We camped at Bootheel RV Park and Event Center (formerly Hayti-Portageville RV Park in a Tent.
