About RFCN2

Sort of retired long time RVer. I like motorhomes because I always have. I like fooling around fixing things, but not obsessively. I love touring the western USA.

Holbrook / Petrified Forest KOA, Holbrook, Arizona

Date of Stay: October, 2016 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

We have stayed here about five times. Good location. Close to the freeway but not too noisy. Sites are gravel, but compacted and not a bunch of dirt. They serve food here for breakfast and dinner. We camped at Holbrook / Petrified Forest KOA in a Motorhome.

Cowboy RV Park, Pocatello, Idaho

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $37.00
Overall Rating:      

Our space was so beyond the ability of our coach to level. This is a tight, close to your neighbor type park. Most of your neighbors will have been here a while. One night one of them used a grinder to make something. Sounded like they were grinding metal. This noise went on for quite a while. Tight interior roads. We paid for three nights and only stayed two. We camped at Cowboy RV Park in a Motorhome.

Great Falls KOA, Great Falls, Montana

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

This park is very hard to rate. If you have a small trailer or motorhome you stay in the old side which is a bit overgrown but very nice. Lots of flowers, nice pool, pancake breakfast and so on. But we have a big motorhome so we stayed in the new section which has none of those things. The new section is mostly dirt with some gravel, and some green. I say green because it is not grass it is dense weeds. Some of the weeds are the ones with sharp points that make shoes better than sandals.

Thankfully it did not rain when we were here. It was close but just missed us. If it rains this place will turn into a mud bowl. When the weeds are removed and replaced with grass and the roads paved or graveled the new section will be fine. Until then the new section is not really a good place to stay. We camped at Great Falls KOA in a Motorhome.

Havre RV Park, Havre, Montana

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

This RV park is right on Hwy 2. And immediately on the other side is a major train depot. So you get noise in stereo. And this park is an unusual design. Not in a good way. It is fully paved. All sites do have full hookups. But the sites for rigs over about 25' in length are all curbside on a median. This means that water and power are on the wrong side of the coach. There is a sewer on both sides. There are lots of nice regular back in sites on the perimeter, but only short rigs will fit.

When we were there most of the longer sites were occupied by long term trailers. These were occupied by agricultural workers. The ones we met were from South Africa and very nice. But they are in the 20s and do like to drink beer outside. Since all the rigs open into the middle that means you may have a late party right outside your home, like we did. And then left over beer bottles and other trash all around your site the next morning. However, the loud beer party noise was much drowned out by the engine brakes of OTR trucks slowing down to our left and many trains on the right.

Nice staff. Very friendly to me. There is a large gas station next door for fueling up and casino. We camped at Havre RV Park in a Motorhome.

Downstream COE, Fort Peck, Montana

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $10.00
Overall Rating:      

I don't give any park with no water to site or sewer a 9 or 10. Even with those this would not have been a 10. I do recommend visiting this campground. I found it because AAA had the Fort Peck dam as a "gem" in their tour book. The area around this campground is a "gem" to visit. Beautiful scenic views. Very good and free tour of facility. Very very nice museum right next to camp ground. When we were here, this campground and the whole area was infested with mosquitoes. They bite during the day here. Bring OFF. Once I put on the OFF lotion the mosquitoes stayed away.

This is a very nice and spacious campground. Try and get a site with a water view. We camped at Downstream COE in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

For some strange reason they put water fill ups (two of them) so you block the road when filling up. So if you can come with a full tank. Put on bug repellent before going outside if you come in summer. Be sure to go up at sunset to see the views up top of the dam. Bring your best camera. Take route 24 in. Other road is under construction. For miles.

Red Trail Campground, Medora, North Dakota

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed here three nights. OK park next to Medora ND. So if you are going to visit Teddy Roosevelt Park this is one of the places you would stay. The park is fine, but a bit funky. Water pressure and flow is low on both. This is walking - biking distance to Medora. Strong Verizon signal. We camped at Red Trail Campground in a Motorhome.

Mel Riemen Rec COE, Valley City, North Dakota

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $10.00
Overall Rating:      

This park is unsuitable for larger motorhomes. But you cannot tell that from the web site. We showed up with our motorhome, looked at the site, and left. There is no way we could have leveled our rig in the site. Plus getting our 42' motorhome into the site would have taken a shoe horn.

This would be fine for a 30' motorhome if you have lots of leveling blocks or you get one of the few level sites. We camped at Mel Riemen Rec COE in a Motorhome.

Alexandria Shooting Park and RV Campground, Alexandria, Minnesota

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a GREAT stop without reservations. Only a few blocks off the Interstate but not much noise in the park. My dog loved this place as there is a huge area with grass and I rode my bike and we went up and down the rows. Since the rows were almost entirely empty that was no problem. We had very good 50amp and water hook up. Dump station at end of row. We camped at Alexandria Shooting Park and RV Campground in a Motorhome.

American Wilderness Campground, Grafton, Ohio

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $43.00
Overall Rating:      

This is like being in the woods fairly close to Cleveland with a few hundred other people. The grounds here are nice. We had good 50amp and water. No sewer sites in this park. There is one road with one lane going into and out of this park. Best to hook up your tow before using it. WiFi is terrible. Verizon is terrible. Bring books. Forget getting a sat dish to work unless in some of the sites without trees over you. This park is quite crowded in the summer. We stay here because it is the closest decent RV park to our family. If I had good other choices I would likely take them. We camped at American Wilderness Campground in a Motorhome.

Kelley's Island State Park, Kelley's Island, Ohio

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

This park has some really good points and some very bad. The good first. It is right on the water on Kelley's Island with many sites that have a water view. Only 2 sites with distant water views allow pets. 1/2 of the really good water view sites have no electricity. There are no water or sewer sites in the park. Only one section allows pets. They strictly enforce this. At least half of the campers when we were here camped in tents. Mixing RVs and tents right next to each other can have problems. We had people next to us for 7 days with two dogs that barked all the time. The dogs were left unattended sometimes. Our distant water view was blocked most of the time by the LARGE collection of things people bring when camping in small RVs or tents. Big screen rooms for example. Sometimes there are MANY people on one site. The water fill up is a spring type, so you have to stand there holding the faucet for as long as you fill. For us I stood holding the faucet for 20 minutes.

We have been to Kelley's Island many times, but this was the first time in our motorhome. I think we will not return in our RV. If you come on summer weekends you should be OK with crowds. People pack an amazing amount of stuff into a pickup. And sometimes there was more than one pickup. We did complain to the people next to us to keep their dogs quiet. They did not. We asked the people running this park to tell the people next to us to keep their dogs quiet, they were ineffective. We camped at Kelley's Island State Park in a Motorhome.

Amana Colonies RV Park, Amana, Iowa

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $19.00

Huge park with grassy sites. With Passport America the cost is very reasonable. Perfect for going to visit the Amana villages and or a quiet rest stop. Our dog loved this park as there was so much grassy area I took him off the leash and threw the ball for him for a while. Our site was quite a bit un-level. Our auto level system kept hunting.
