River Terrace Park, Monticello, Minnesota

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

This park is a mixed bag. The RV area itself is pretty nice, with a number of sites under beautiful tall trees and others that back right up to the Mississippi River. The river was high when we visited, so high that the boat ramp was blocked off with sandbags to keep the water out. Not sure how normal that is, but I wouldn't want to stay in one of those waterfront sites with a small child -- the water is close and moving fast. Other than that, the main downside to this park is that it's situated in the middle of a pretty sketchy trailer park, so the first impression is not good. Also, the owner uses his house as his office, which felt odd and unprofessional. And he doesn't take credit cards. And finally, though the owner was friendly and helpful, I was a put off by all the signs on his home and truck with right-wing political messages. We camped at River Terrace Park in a Travel Trailer.

Country Campground, Detroit Lakes, Minnesota

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

This place is a gem! Really one of the nicest RV parks we have stayed in. Very friendly and helpful owners, spacious, well-planned sites, two playgrounds for the kids, a recreation building with ping-pong and other games, and a chip-and-putt golf course. Even the views were pretty, with a lake across the street and huge fields on two sides of us. The only surprise, given everything they had to offer, was that the wifi was terrible -- didn't work for us at all and we had to use mifi. We camped at Country Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Detroit Lakes is a great little town. Be sure to visit the town beach. If you want to splurge on a very nice dinner, visit Spanky's in nearby Vergas. Our friends, who live in the area, took us there, and the food was amazing.

Moose Lake State Park, Moose Lake, Minnesota

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $31.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a lovely little state park! The spots are large and very private, with lots of big trees and shrubs separating them. Each has a fire ring. There's a boat ramp and beach area on a beautiful lake. The lake is the perfect size for canoeing or kayaking. There are no full hook-ups in the park -- only electric (and not all even have that), no water or sewer. There's also no dump station, as others have said. But there's a water fill hose right by the front gate -- I saw several rigs stop to fill up their fresh water tanks -- as well as numerous water spigots throughout the park. I can't imagine a Class A motorhome fitting in here; the roads are very narrow and there are lots of overhanging trees. We have a 25' Airstream and it felt like a tight fit getting in. But for smaller campers, it's a really beautiful campground with wonderfully private sites. We camped at Moose Lake State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Graham's Island State Park, Devils Lake, North Dakota

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

This is a beautiful state park that is truly "away from it all" on an island in the middle of Devil's Lake. The lake is apparently great for fishing, but it's not great for swimming. Tons of visible algae made it pretty unappealing. That said, we enjoyed walks, short bike rides, and kayaking along the shore. We stayed two nights in the LaRose section of the park, which is the newest, and one night in the Howard. (Comments about our site, below, are for the LaRose site).

The LaRose is wide open with only small trees, but the spots are very spacious and the Verizon connection was surprisingly good (3 bars) considering how far away the island is from any town (15 miles). They are constructing a new building at one end of the LaRose campground, so there was a bit of construction noise during the day. Our site in the Howard section was gorgeous: totally private, in the woods under huge trees and surrounded by large shrubs. The downside is that there were more mosquitoes and the Verizon signal was spottier (generally 1 bar). Most sites in the park are huge, with ample space for a camper, truck, and boat. The park office has extensive fishing supplies, bug spray supplies (you'll need them), and a bit of food and drink (not much). One nice park feature we took advantage of was the onsite gasoline pump. We camped at Graham's Island State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Lake City RV Resort (formerly Oaks "N" Pines), Lake City, Florida

Date of Stay: April, 2013 - $33.00
Overall Rating:      

Nice RV park, particularly for a short stay. It couldn't be more convenient -- right along I-10, yet the highway noise was not bad. (With a fan on in our camper we didn't notice any noise at all.) Well-maintained grounds with lovely trees, concrete pads and dog run area. Plus, the owners are super nice and helpful. Price reflects Good Sam discount. We camped at Lake City RV Resort (formerly Oaks "N" Pines) in a Travel Trailer.

Coastal Georgia RV Resort, Brunswick, Georgia

Date of Stay: August, 2011 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

This has to be the cleanest, most well-maintained, well-laid-out campground I've ever visited! Nearly all the spots are pull through and all have concrete pads, picnic tables, and grills. There's grass and plantings between each site that are JUST big enough to provide some privacy. There's a pretty lake toward the back, and the pool area is very nice. There's even a fenced-in grassy area for dogs to play off-leash. There's a bit of highway noise, but not too bad. The only real drawback is that there are no trees for shade at all, which on this 97 degree day we could have used. But, we just stopped for one night while passing through, and for that purpose it's brilliant! We camped at Coastal Georgia RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Rutledge Lake RV Park, Fletcher, North Carolina

Date of Stay: July, 2011 - $37.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed at Rutledge Lake for 2 weeks and used it as a jumping off point to explore Asheville, Brevard, and surrounding areas. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! The campground has a lovely setting on a small lake, the hosts were friendly and helpful, the pool area and clubhouse were very nice, and everything was clean and well-maintained. Also, the Wi-Fi worked great, and the nearby Verizon cell tower meant there were no issues with cell service. That said, some of the sites are more spacious than others, and there's not a lot of separation between the sites in the middle rows. Overall, though, I would definitely recommend this campground. We camped at Rutledge Lake RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Collier-Seminole State Park, Naples, Florida

Date of Stay: December, 2010 - $22.00
Overall Rating:      

After reading the negative reviews of this park on this site, we almost canceled our reservations. Sure glad we didn't! Overall, we really liked this park, and enjoyed three lovely days here. Yes, the restrooms could use an upgrade, and there's not loads of space between sites. But there was plenty of room for our rig (a 19' travel trailer). There are a few spaces for big RVs, but the park clearly mostly caters to tent campers and small travel trailers. It also seems to draw a lot of foreign visitors; we enjoyed meeting fellow campers from Quebec and Columbia, and also heard German and Japanese spoken. We particularly liked the location of the park. It's a great jumping-off point for exploring the Everglades (with the HQ of Everglades National Park about 15 miles away), Ten Thousand Islands National Wildlife Refuge, and the city of Naples. Of course, we visited in winter, so no mosquitoes. But really, what do people expect when they visit the Everglades in mid-summer?! We camped at Collier-Seminole State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Wilmington KOA, Wilmington, North Carolina

Date of Stay: August, 2010 - $54.00
Overall Rating:      

We'd never stayed in a KOA before, so I don't know how this compares to others. We typically stay in state parks and smaller campgrounds that don't have a lot of services, so to us this place seemed to have every amenity known to mankind. A nice pool, dog park areas, swing sets for the kids, a well-stocked store and unexpected services like trash pickups at each site every day. The staff were VERY friendly and helpful, we decided to stay an extra day and they figured out a way to let us stay in the same site instead of moving. The only reason I don't give this place a 10 is that there aren't a lot of trees or privacy between sites. It felt a little like a crowded parking lot. Plus their rates seem a bit high to me. We camped at Wilmington KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Falls Lake SRA / Rolling View Campground, Wake Forest, North Carolina

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

A great place to "get away from it all". Very secluded, private sites amidst tall trees and thick foliage. Very spacious and level sites, all well maintained. Wide roads for easy maneuverability. Nice beach areas with swing sets. Not the most friendly or helpful staff at the entrance. They failed to give us a campground map, then handed us one sullenly (no apology) when we returned to get it. Note that what appear to be "waterfront" sites may not have a view due to thick trees between the site and the water. No Wi-Fi or cable, which is either a detriment or a good opportunity to truly "disconnect" from the modern world! We camped at Falls Lake SRA / Rolling View Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Honey Bear Campground, Boone, North Carolina

Date of Stay: August, 2010 - $37.00
Overall Rating:      

I would give this campground an "A" for effort, but nonetheless a few things are lacking. The sites are pretty cramped and not too private, and most are on hilly roads that make getting in and out a challenge. We had a great, fairly private site on the stream (D3), but had to back up a long way down a hill to get into it. The bathrooms are old and worn looking, but they were clean. Weirdly, though, you have to walk across a large field of grass to get to the bathhouse. It was rainy when we were there, making me think that a gravel walkway would be nice instead of walking through wet grass. The Wi-Fi didn't work at all at our site, even though we were relatively near the campground office. All that said, the management were about as nice and friendly and helpful as we've ever encountered. They have provided all sorts of fun stuff for the kids, including swings and a game room and a big screen TV in a playroom near the office. They also lend out books and DVDs, and were very knowledgeable about what to do in the area while we were there. The campground is also very well located near Boone. One final note, there are some beautiful sites just for tents. We camped at Honey Bear Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Mama Gertie's Hideaway Campground, Swannanoa, North Carolina

Date of Stay: August, 2010 - $35.00
Overall Rating:      

This is one of the nicest campgrounds we've ever stayed in. Definitely the cleanest, newest restrooms we've ever come across: absolutely spotless. Everything about the place is very well maintained and new. There are no real kids activities, thus no (or very few) children, so it's really quiet and peaceful. The roads around the campground area are indeed steep, as others have noted, but workable. And note: the "stream" that some sites back up to is no more than a tiny trickle. Nonetheless, those sites have a little more privacy than some. The campground is well located right off the highway (though far enough that you don't hear highway noise at all), and near the wonderful town of Asheville. Overall, I loved this campground and hope to return again soon. We camped at Mama Gertie's Hideaway Campground in a Motorhome.

Crooked River State Park, Saint Marys, Georgia

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

We loved this state park! The spots were roomy and situated under tall, beautiful pine trees. Many (but not all) had smaller shrubs between the spaces for privacy as well. We got a great spot out near the river -- terrific views of the marshes. The park has miles of trails through all different kinds of habitat. We saw lots of wildlife -- gopher tortoises, armadillos, deer, even wild pigs, in addition to all manner of birds. The park offers wi-fi at the registration area, which is a couple miles from the campsites. Also, we were so far from a town that my cell phone (T-Mobile) didn't work. But, if you're looking for an authentic back-to-nature, get-away-from-it-all experience, this is a great place. We camped at Crooked River State Park in a Travel Trailer.
