Manistique Lakeshore Campground, Manistique, Michigan

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

I have to agree with the previous reviewers, this is a near-perfect RV Park. Right on the lake shore. Everything is clean and first quality. A little expensive, but worth it. We camped at Manistique Lakeshore Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice paths down to the lake shore. There's a boardwalk and breakwater that you can walk out on. But, when we were there the waves were crashing over the breakwater, but it made for some spectacular wave watching.

Wisconsin State Fair RV Park, West Allis, Wisconsin

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

This park worked very well for us. Easy check -in, friendly staff. It's basically a big paved parking lot with hookups. Roomy sites. It's well lighted, you might want to keep your blackout shades closed at night. Security is good, we felt very safe here. Just make sure you pull into your site in the correct direction so the utilities are on the correct side. We camped at Wisconsin State Fair RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Amana Colonies RV Park, Amana, Iowa

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $37.00
Overall Rating:

This park is a big flat field with a grid of access roads. The sites are narrow gravel, but plenty long. All the sites are technically back-in's, but if an adjacent site is vacant, you can pull through. If back to back sites are occupied. you'll be looking out your back window right at the back of the next RV. This is a PA park, but I didn't realize that when I made the reservation, so the best rate I could get was the Good Sam discount. We camped at Amana Colonies RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

You can bike into Amana, easiest from the west gate of the park. A short drive down a paved road gets you to miles of bike trails which go to all the colonies, along the river. You might want to try the Rhubarb wine from Ackerman Winery.

This park worked OK for us. The interior gravel roads are a little narrow, our site was unlevel. With my levelers extended and level, the right tires were off the ground. Not bad for an overnight stop. We camped at Holiday RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Wasatch View Estates and RV Park, Ogden, Utah

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

This park made a great overnight stop for us. Easy access from the freeway, nice wide sites. This is a partially converted trailer park, but it has very roomy sites, good utilities and wide interior streets. The sites are technically back-ins, but if the adjoining site is vacant you can pull through, very easy. We'd definitely stay here again.

Silver Cove Resort, Silverlake, Washington

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $44.00
Overall Rating:

We spent 4 nights at Silver Cove. We were vacationing with our 2 daughters and their families and rented 2 RV sites and a loft cabin, all right together. Perfect setup for a little family reunion. This place is perfect, well laid out with plenty of green space behind the sites. There are waterways that wind through the park right behind some of the sites,and they connect with the lake. You can rent kayaks, pedal boats and stand-up paddle boards. We visited the Johnston Ridge Observatory at Mt. St. Helens, about a 43 mile drive from the park. Admission to the observatory is $8.00, unless you have a Senior National Park pass, then it's free for up to 4 people. It's well worth the drive, great visitor center with an awesome movie about the eruption. We liked everything about this park. It's clean and well-maintained. The staff and management are very friendly and accommodating. We'd definitely stay here again. We camped at Silver Cove Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

We did the Ziplining at Treehouse Island, it's just half a mile down the road at Streeter's RV Park. It's about a 15 min boat ride out to the island then a 2.5 hour ziplining adventure. Our whole group, six of us ages 12-70, had a great time

Tamarack RV Park, Coeur d'Alene, Idaho

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $24.00
Overall Rating:

I would have given this park a higher rating, BUT, the pull-through site we got was impossible to turn in to due to the large trees. Fortunately, our neighbor across the drive pulled their truck out so we could back into their site and then make the turn into our site. Took about half hour to get positioned. Other than that. The park does have a nice woodsy appearance. There are some permanent residents (as in nearly every private RV park today), but they were well-kept. I don't think we'd return due to the tight maneuvering needed to get into the sites. We camped at Tamarack RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Southern Hills RV Park and Campground, Hermosa, South Dakota

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $16.00

This is the perfect park for our needs. Nice long gravel pull throughs, 50-amp full-hookups. The PA rate is good for 3 nights, great value. The owners are very helpful and friendly. The park is very open and spacious. The roads are easy to navigate. This is a good base for exploring the Black Hills and Mt. Rushmore.

This is a good base for exploring the southern Black HIlls, about 30 min to Mt Rushmore or the Wildlife Loop. No grocery shopping nearby except for Pop's Grocery Shoppe on Main St. Looks like it would be OK in a pinch. There's a Flying J about 1/4 mi away; gas prices are OK. If you need propane you can leave your empty tank at Nelson's, right behind Flying J, call the toll free number, and they will fill the bottle and call you when ready to pick up. It was $25 to fill a 30# tank.

Sleepy Hollow RV Park, Wall, South Dakota

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $32.00
Overall Rating:

This is a very good park with all pull-throughs. Everything worked well. Long enough gravel sites. Cable TV was available for a small extra charge. It's an easy walk to the main street of Wall and Wall Drug. Lots of souvenier and T-shirt shops if you like that kind of thing. It's a good base for exploring the Badlands. This is our second time staying here, and would probably stay here again if in the area. We camped at Sleepy Hollow RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

The Landing Point RV Park, Cape Girardeau, Missouri

Date of Stay: April, 2017 - $34.00
Overall Rating:

The park was fine for our needs. The utilities worked well, but it was kind of a long stretch to the sewer hookup, all the way at the back of the site. It's a bit of a drive into town and down to the old town area. There's another park closer into town, Cape Camping and RV Park, which looks like it is right on the Cape LaCroix Bike trail, a nice paved 5.6 mile trail that goes into the middle of town. We might choose that one if we're in the area again. We camped at The Landing Point RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
