Yuba State Park - Painted Rocks Campground, Levan, Utah

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

This park is one of the best laid out parks we have ever encountered. Almost every site will accommodate a big rig and they are very easy to access. One thing to note is that the Utah Parks website and the sign at the highway entrance both proclaim full hook up sites available. They seem to regard electric and water as full hook up as only the camp host site has sewer. This is not a problem if you are only staying a night or two or arrive off season and are the only rig in the camp as we were and are willing to pay the extra $10 for the host site, which we weren't. The lake was empty and we were the only ones in the campground. We camped at Yuba State Park - Painted Rocks Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Lakeside Terrace Mobile Home Park, Grand Coulee, Washington

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $18.00
Overall Rating:      

At first glance this park seems a little rundown however the site we stayed on was wide with nice green grass and most of the other sites were pull through with carports. Technically our site could have been pull through except that the overhead power lines were a little low and we weren't willing to cross under them. There was no officeand the notice in the window saying where to find the manager was unclear. Luckily we noticed the small Manager sign on the carport across from the amenities block. Only about 3 mi out of Grand Coulee on the Spokane road so was handy for visiting the dam. We camped at Lakeside Terrace Mobile Home Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Ponderosa Falls RV Resort , Cheney, Washington

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $10.00
Overall Rating:      

Camped here for 3 nights in a 40' fifth wheel. Pull through site large enough for rig and truck. Good satellite coverage from this site although not all sites due to trees. This site is probably for shorter term visitors and is not very wide although some of the sites up the hill are very large. Seem to be plenty of amenities for families. They told us Wifi wasn't very good although we didn't need it. 4G coverage was fine. We camped at Ponderosa Falls RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Desert Park Expedition Society, Osoyoos, British Columbia

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $22.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a small group of campsites at the rear of the local horse racing track. Great views out over Osoyoos. Nothing in the way of facilities and the sites are close together in a line. Ground is all sand with lots of nasty biddy bids on the ground. Power is only 30 amps like most campgrounds in Canada and the water and sewer were oddly placed on our site (11) half under the rig but we coped. The camp host was extremely helpful and accommodating. Good place to stay if you are self contained and don't want to pay the exorbitant rates at other Osoyoos campgrounds. No problem getting US DirectTV and 4G cell coverage is good. We camped at Desert Park Expedition Society in a Fifth Wheel.

Osprey Point RV Resort, Lakeside, Oregon

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $26.00
Overall Rating:      

This campground has recently undergone a change of ownership. The roads and sites have been repaved and the whole campground is looking quite good. It is reasonably easy to get around in a big rig. We were originally assigned a pull through but found it occupied so chose a back in which was ideal with a large pad for the truck alongside. Adequate space between sites. The campground even has a pub with quite a good food menu. Service at time of reservation was good and on arrival was excellent. We camped at Osprey Point RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Zion Gate RV Resort, Hurricane, Utah

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

This CG may have been upgraded since the last reviewer visited as the itinerant sites are very good with nice, reasonably level gravel and concrete platforms with picnic tables. The electric output we got was steady between 117-120. The roads are very wide. We camped at Zion Gate RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Cactus RV Park, Tucumcari, New Mexico

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

Talk about turning a sows ear into a silk purse this "campground" is an old Route 66 Motel which is no longer a motel but the camping facilities have been built around the motel to the extent that one unit has been "removed" to allow a drive through circuit. The lady who met us was very helpful and the campground it self is very tidy. Services are all good and we were lucky to get one of the sites with some shade (95F/35C day). Sites are close together but as 99% of campers are overnighters passing through this is not a biggy. We camped at Cactus RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Amarillo Best Wonderland RV Resort, Amarillo, Texas

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

Previous reviewers have commented on the poor condition of the roads but if you take it slowly that is not a reason to bypass this park. It is the most handy to central Amarillo and a better price than some of the others that looked a little close when we passed. The lady who greeted us was the epitome of southern grace and manners and our site was just fine. Most sites had a bit of a slope which might be a problem with motorhomes but no problem with a fifth wheel with self levelling. One thing I would note is that the entrance is on the freeway access road not the big wide gate that you see when you arrive (which is the exit) so turn left at the lights. We camped at Amarillo Best Wonderland RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Sayre City Park Campground, Sayre, Oklahoma

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $12.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a very well kept city campground in a large park with several huge graveled pull through sites and lots more grassed sites. There is no sewer at site which is the only negative. The dump station is on the access road which is quiet enough during the week to not pose a problem but may cause some problems if the park is full of people on the weekends. Our 50A pull through site had good power and water pressure. It might be interesting accessing some of the sites if the park was full but we were the only rig there when we parked for the one night. If we didn't have to be elsewhere we would have stayed longer. We camped at Sayre City Park Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Brady Lake City Campground, Brady, Texas

Date of Stay: August, 2015 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

This campground is about 4 mi outside Brady alongside Brady lake. It is a bit run down although the services we used (50A/W) were OK. There are 3 parts to the park, an area where there are about 12 pull through loop sites, an area we didn't look at and the main area which is mostly cabins but where there are a few RV sites although these are not well marked. You just pull up alongside a pole and plug in. When we were there it was not busy so we could basically park where we wanted. I would say that there are a lot of low trees in the park with very stiff branches which could be difficult to avoid if it was busy. We camped at Brady Lake City Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Albany Motor Inn & RV Campground, Albany, Texas

Date of Stay: August, 2015 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

Rather than a campground this is a line of about 10 sites behind the motel. They are perfectly adequate with 50A/30A FHU. They appear to be pull through although in reality only about 3 or 4 of them are true pull through due to restricted access at the rear of the sites. They are right on the back street so if you had to back in you would be doing so right off the street. That wouldn't be too difficult as it is a quiet street and except at rare times there are unlikely to be many RVs here, (we were the only one while we were here). The lady at the front desk was very nice. It is very handy being less than a mile from downtown Albany which is a gem of a town. We camped at Albany Motor Inn & RV Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Downtown Albany is a lovely place, not many shops but what are there are nice. The soda fountain is original and they even serve soda in the old manner with syrup and soda. The Old Jail Art Museum is a must see (and free).

Loyd Park, Grand Prairie, Texas

Date of Stay: August, 2015 - $31.00
Overall Rating:      

The only really annoying thing about this park is having to pay a $10 per day vehicle access fee on top of the camping fees. The total paid above includes the vehicle fee and the Good Sam discount. We stayed here because it was the closest park to both Dallas and Fort Worth that had better than a 6 rating. At the time we stayed at least half the sites were still closed due to flooding but there were still plenty of available sites. This is actually a very nice park; the sites are very well laid out with a huge amount of room between each site, full concrete pads and a shelter with BBQ at each site. Our only real problem was that there is only 30A service and with temperatures around 40C (104 old measurement) it was totally inadequate for keeping our rig cool. We stayed in site 214 which was a double wide site although most of the sites looked big enough to handle any big rig. We camped at Loyd Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Will Rogers Memorial Center RV Parking, Fort Worth, Texas

Date of Stay: August, 2015 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed here for 2 nights in lot 1 which is the lower cost lot (W/E only). It is $60 in the FHU lot and we will never pay that much. We were the only rig in this lot (midweek) but I am sure it fills up when there is an event on. There are only 4 50A "sites" in this lot and lots of 30A "sites". It is basically just a parking lot but for us it was a great place to visit Fort Worth from as it is right in the heart of the Cultural district and only 10 mins from Downtown. There are no reservations, you just turn up and call the office when you arrive. Power is turned on by the RV attendant when they arrive to take your money. There is a dump station in the lot. We camped at Will Rogers Memorial Center RV Parking in a Fifth Wheel.

We didn't actually stay here. We wanted to but when we arrived we approached the office and were advised that they did not allow the general public to camp here. Their RV facilities are purely for events that are being held in the complex. Thought we had better make this observation so that no one else turns up expecting to just camp at any time. We camped at Heart of Texas Fair Complex (Not open to the Public) in a Fifth Wheel.
