CG SE of Hillsboro beyond the airport, (look at google map) and some sites, no trees, located by the lake, and most on top of a hill with many areas well treed. Large bathhouse that was clean, but posted note stating long time to get hot water. I never got hot water for a morning shower. Several small toilet/sink only huts. Several sewer dumps and drinking water located by the CG entrance. Tarmac roads and sites, but 90 degree back in sites narrow and short. Some pull throughs with unusual 90 degree in and outs with a horizontal section joining the two entries to the CG road. (Think of a table.) Some good views of the lake along a circular CG section where I was. Nice camp store. Well mowed grassy grounds. Nice.

Large CG about 8 miles west of Dayton with easy entry on paved CG roads, but further in CG gravel roads. Pull through sites for Class A MHs closer to the camp store mostly without shade and many not quite level, but many trees shading further in back in mostly level graveled sites. Sites have long concrete pads by the graved, but narrow RV pads. The CG roads and sites are in curved twisted arrangements, and it is easy to get confused where you are, but CG map and well marked site numbers help. Very clean Bathhouses with like new facilities. Unable to get WiFi reception at my site. Lots of kid activities about; for a price. Two lakes with walking path. Pricy for two overnights just to sleep while on business in Dayton. Only CG nearby Dayton except even further east of Dayton state parks.

Oliver Lee State Park is about 9 miles southwest of Alamogordo on US 54, then 4 miles east up Dog Canyon road up a long ascending slope to the base of the abrupt cliff faces of the Sacramento Mountains where the narrow Dog Canyon exits the mountain. There are two loops with electricity on 14 loop A sites and 4 on loop B according to the CG map. Some sites have shelters. Roads are paved, sites gravel and most not level. I lucked out to get site 25 which had previously been a host site so had sewer as well and was level. There is a dump station near the entrance. Gorgeous views of Tularosa valley and the mountain cliffs. All sorts of interesting dessert plants abound, some in bloom. Small visitor center with nice historical exhibits some featuring "Frenchy" a French immigrant who solo build long still existing rock walls by and up the steep canyon slopes to fence his livestock and an orchard, and Oliver Lee, rancher. A quiet beautiful place worth a stay. Just wish more level sites for all.

One of the best KOAs we've stayed at. Very friendly helpful staff. Gravel roads and level sites mostly with adequate gravel except at entry turn areas of heavy wear. Sites fairly close but with nice paved patio with a separate grass area curb side of the RV. Bathrooms large and very clean with hot water. Nice store and large laundry. A separate dump at the back corner was tight to close up to. Sites variable as to having 30 amp electricity only, while others have 30/50 amp, and whether all had site sewer I don't know. Four nice grassy tent sites. Small playground.

Elk Creek Campground is part of the Curecanti National Recreation Area, and is at the eastern end of the large long and beautiful Blue Mesa Reservoir. The campground is on a long slope ending at the lake some half mile off, and has 4 loops with some 128 sites according to the campground handout map. Loops A and D accept reservations. D loop has electricity. The roads are paved and D has paved sites; didn't go into the other loops. Two bathhouses in D. The D sites vary in levelness and there were 6 pull-throughs out of 28 sites. The area is typical semiarid scrub with long visas. Dump station at the entrance with a nearby water fill. We had senior passes so $9/night. Our campground hosts were very nice and enjoyable.

Bottomless Lakes SP is about 10 miles east of Roswell, and then south along about 7 miles of paved roads, one at the base of a long abrupt ridge, and the better road on top of the ridge. At the base of the ridge there are 7 pothole lakes. Lea lake is the second largest and is the most southern where the CG is located. The lake is beautiful and the eastern cliffs rugged and impressive. By Lea lake there is a large semicircular pavilion/bath house and a large day area which during our stay was filled with some sort of a RV group rally. The campground is level with 2 loops well graveled with a shelter at each. 26 electric/water, 6 sites electric/water/sewer, and 3 no hookups. Two bathhouse, very clean with hot water. One dump. We had no bugs. It was a quiet pretty stay overnighter for us. Would stay there again.

This is a Bureau of Land Management campground about 2 miles north of Fort Stanton, NM. It is on the east side of the 220 road on a beautiful plain with far mountain views. It is a large well graveled area with about 9 ill defined sites with a shared water/30amp post. Behind the graveled area is a looped road with a few water only posts for about 19 total "sites". This area can be used for groups. The CG is good for visiting Ft. Stanton and for horse riding into the countryside. There is an attendant who has a fenced in site for his RV. Camping is free but hooking up on water and electricity are each $5, but half with the Senior Pass.

A large COE campground on a large lake/reservoir, with nicely spaced gravel sites and paved roads. Sites could use more gravel, as after rains was soggy dirt/gravel. Well designed dump. Bathroom in area was small, no shower. Lots of trees, and many sites with great lake view. Great for biking. Needs a better sign off US 56 highway to the campground which road to crosses the dam forming the lake. Easy to miss if you don't know, we missed it, don't think it said campground, but something like offices of Corps of Engineers. A nice great value campground for us.

This is a very nice CG with 3 loops, each with 1 pull-through, and the rest back-in sites, all with EWS. The A loop is smaller, but with 7 tent sites and RV sites. Paved roads with gravel/sandy sites nicely separated with brush between. Bathhouses nice and clean with hot water showers. There is a dump with two sewers connections. A paved road goes half way to the Rainbow River with a paved path the rest of the way not for cars, so boats have to be carried or carted the rest of the short way to the paved launch, and to the wooded decked river overlook. There are rental kayaks and canoes there, and at the CG office there are wooden carts you can borrow to take your boat to the river. The Rainbow river is shallow but wide, clear with current waving bottom grasses and some fish to be seen. It is about a mile upstream to the springs, however, it requires about a 10 mile round about drive where there is an extensive flowered park with rental boats, and swimming at the springs where water flows up out of the rocky bottom. You get a free CG entry card to the up stream springs park at the CG office on arrival. Near the entry to the CG there is a trolley paved side road to the park's tubing center which you can bike to. It has a nice board walk through the woods/swamp to the tube launch. We really like this park.

Fee of $28/night, but reservation fee of $6.75. South of St. Augustine with a mile long entry paved road with brush both sides, and a walking/bike path along side, a windsurfing pavilion and a kayak/canoe rental, and a fish cleaning area. Road comes to a large parking area with two nice boardwalks to the wide sandy beach. Some slow WiFi by the parking area.The large wooded CG is to the right of the entry to the beach and has 7 paved loops along a long paved road. Bring a bike for it is long distances to walk. The best loop for RV is the first Coquina loop, as these sites were more level and more uniformly wider. All sites EW and dirt surface. Biking along the other loops I saw very variable sites; many very unlevel, narrow, overhanging limbs, etc., so a RV may or not get an appropriate site for its size. There is thick brush between the ends of the loops and the Salt Run that's by the entry road, so to get to the beach its a long way to walk to the beach area. There is a dump at the entry to the CG with 3 wide parallel dumps.

Thirty eight miles from park entry to CG and about 10 miles further from Homestead for fuel, food, and another return trip making about a hundred miles, so fuel up and food up before starting for park. Reservations possible though often all taken. There is gas and diesel at the park store with diesel $4.10/gallon. A small nature center at the CG and a larger one at the park entry. There are rental canoes and kayaks, and a $37/person boat tour up the Buttonwood canal to a lake. This canal replaced a long coastal boat trip to the Bear lake area, and the boat tour guide was excellent with his information and the wild live along the canal. The CG is large with grassy areas for tents, and long but narrow pull through paved RV sites, some with electricity in the T section, and none in the A and B loop. The C loop is not open with overgrown grass. There is a entry sewer dump, and water connections at the bathhouses. A bathhouse in the A or B loop has solar water panel heaters for a hot shower. There is a large walk in tent grass area near the picnic and amphitheater area that was flooded during our visit, and there is a paved wood land path from the amphitheater to the Flamingo visitor center. The nearby Eco Pond has a grass path around it for nature viewing. There were large numbers of buzzards "camping " in the CG and there were interesting to see. Do bring a bike as this is a large CG park and a bike is a great way to see more.

Huge CG with crammed together paved narrow sites with EWS, about 40 feet long with big A RVs filling them and tow cars parked sideways in the paved roads. A trolley vehicle goes about the complex and can be called to pick you up. One bathhouse near the entrance with 3 showers and toilets in the men and womens sections. The narrow grassed sections between sites were rather unkept. The real draw for the CG is to look at new or used RVs, or to attend a rally. The rally building, pool, the new store and their sales building are all very nice and there are over a hundred service bays for repairs. They have some nice teaching sessions, and you get a free morning paper, and free breakfast and limited lunch. There is frequent trash pickups at site, and a real plus is every employee we talked to were pleasant and helpful. Management must have a top priority on this and it is certainly good business and welcomed. The draw for this is not the CG and you would need to be self contained for bath and toilet.

Three loops with 7 pull throughs, and 38 back in sites all wide most with some bushes between. The surface was dirt-sand-gravel. Some sites with wooden borders. Paved roads. The price was $22 with tax/nite, but reservations was $6.70 so cost was $28.70/nite. It is a nice CG per se, and the real draw is the lovely Tall Carillon with its tubular bells that are played automatically through out the day. Exhibits show the history of Stephen Foster, his songs, the resort town of White Springs, the spring house, the construction of the carillon and the bells and a museum with old pianos, paintings, and dioramas. There is a large gift shop with musical instruments, in season craft shops, and monthly events. Canoes are rented to use on the Suwannee river and extensive hiking trails. A great place to visit.

South Bay RV is a Palm Beach county CG at the SE of Lake Okeechobee just west of Belle Glade with easy access. It is large with moderate spacing between paved sites and paved roads with grass and some trees between sites. Two large loops all back in sites. There is a Shiner Lake between the loops with a walking path about it, part paved, part not paved. The bath house was clean and had a screened in laundry at the entrance. One playground. Price/nite was $25 plus tax for $29. Lots of long stay big A RVs. An exceptionally class act RV park.

I have stayed at about 200 CGs in the last 4 years, and I think this is the best CG ever. COE CGs are usually great, and this one was the best so far. Along the Cumberland River Cheatham Lake, Lock A, there is a 2 mile paved road with spaced trees, many with labels of kind, many concrete picnic tables, at least 3 boat ramps, the dam, locks, and power house, 3 playgrounds, well mowed grass verges. The sites are widely separated mostly and paved for RVs, with some large well graveled tent sites along the river bank. A second RV row is back from the river side sites but some are not real level. Bath houses very clean. Cost was $11.50/nite with America the Beautiful Senior card. The road in is narrow, windy, and some steep hills. Saw only one big A RV there. About 20 miles NW of Nashville off of state highway 12.33.
