Gold Rock Campground, New Smyrna Beach, Florida

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

This is a great park as home base for exploring NSB. There are 2 other campgrounds a mile away from here as well. Very friendly management here. Laid back and quiet atmosphere, the entrance section is all mobile homes, there are also several residents around the perimeter of the park. No frills but decent sites with power, water, sewer, cable, and wifi. Our first visit last month we took the available pull through spot, this time it was occupied and we grabbed a back-in. Both sites were partially shaded, there are others that are full sun. We camped at Gold Rock Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Tomoka State Park, Ormond Beach, Florida

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

Great park, feels very intimate even though it's fairly large. Sits on a peninsula just a few miles from Ormond Beach. Not at all big rig friendly, so my hat's off to those who were able to squeeze their larger 5th wheels and TTs in here during our stay. Several site driveways are at a 90 degree angle to the road and there is a lot of vegetation opposite the sites, so some are likely more difficult to get into. Nice little boat ramp with trailer parking for water activities a mile and half or so from the bottom of the campground loop, some fishing access points along the way as well. I did have a raccoon open the drinks cooler during the night, that was on me for not securing it at all. We camped at Tomoka State Park in a Travel Trailer.

St Lucie South COE, Stuart, Florida

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

This is a great little park and we were fortunate enough to be in one of the three waterfront spots. This happened to be our first trip in our new TT which we got on the way in. The lock system is fascinating, and that's the main attraction here. Stuart is just a short drive away to the beaches. Very quiet and clean during our stay. I'm giving an "8" based on not having sewer hookups at the site which is not a deal breaker, just keeps it from being excellent overall. Speaking of the dump, there's a choke point in the driveway there, so plan your exit accordingly. Only 9 sites, 3 are waterfront, the other 6 will have water views. I am heading back there later this month for another weekend. We camped at St Lucie South COE in a Travel Trailer.

Blue Spring State Park, Orange City, Florida

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $24.00
Overall Rating:      

We loved this park. The spring and river are great for paddling, the spring is also wonderful for tubing and swimming. You can walk to the springs entrance from the campground if you're in reasonably good health. The line to get in here gets long on the weekends, so be mindful of this if you are arriving or trying to get back in to the park mid-day. We will go back during manatee time. This was our last trip in the "Big Rig" 32' Tango rear lounge. We camped at Blue Spring State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Faver-Dykes State Park, St Augustine, Florida

Date of Stay: April, 2016 - $18.00
Overall Rating:      

We're big fans of Florida State Parks in general, this park is similar to many we have stayed in and been happy with so far. Great location to get away to nature, and still close enough to civilization to keep up with creature comforts. We camped at Faver-Dykes State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Whispering Elms Campground, Baker, Nevada

Date of Stay: August, 2012 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

If you want full hookups just outside Great Basin NP, this is the closest choice. We'll pack the generator and conserve on water usage next time and stay in one of the in-park campgrounds. "Pull through" sites are in groups of 4: 2 vehicles per lane, shared utilities are laid out more for motor homes with everything mid-ships. Bathrooms were closed (backed up toilets) for a couple of days. We were 1 of 3 campers in this campground on a Holiday weekend. Large rocks / gravel spaces, not leveled. Plenty of shade trees. WiFi worked OK. Couple of stray dogs (camp dogs?) ran around a lot doing their dog things (sniffing, begging, wetting on hookups, meeting other campers' unleashed dogs). Did see a great horned owl swooping through looking for supper one night which was cool. The bar was open and the manager and locals were SUPER friendly! But you can camp somewhere else, save some dough, enjoy your stay in Great Basin, and still hang out at the bar if that's what you're in to. We camped at Whispering Elms Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Buckskin Mountain State Park, Parker, Arizona

Date of Stay: November, 2011 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

We hadn't been to the Havasu / Parker area before and chose this park as a base camp for exploring. We were very happy with our site, nice and level, shady, good views of the Colorado river. Our site didn't have the sewer hookup, so the price seemed on the high side taking that into consideration (although we knew that when making the reservation so can't complain much). In comparison to several other options up and down the Parker strip, we would likely stay here again if we came back through. AT&T signal strength was good in the site. Local custom seems to be to walk through each others sites. Maybe they all knew each other already, or were less grouchy than I am! We camped at Buckskin Mountain State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Black Rock Campground (NPS Campgound), Yucca Valley, California

Date of Stay: November, 2011 - $15.00
Overall Rating:      

If you know all you're getting is a place to park the RV and you're entirely self-sufficient, the relatively high rating makes sense. The roads are in fairly bad shape, including the approach access, but it helps keep the speeds down, so was fine by us. I didn't see any sites that were level side to side or front to back. We actually moved around in our site after maxing out the tongue jack. BUT, it's a superb location at the edge of Joshua Tree, with direct access to several hiking trails, and made a great base camp to explore the rest of the National Park. Very clean restrooms, no showers, clean dump area with two drains and fresh water fill. If we pass through again, this is on our list for sure. We camped at Black Rock Campground (NPS Campgound) in a Travel Trailer.

Campland On The Bay, San Diego, California

Nice park with lots of amenities, more geared to the Summer visitor in that regard. Too pricey overall for our style of RVing but it suited our needs for location this trip. Clean. We camped at Campland On The Bay in a Travel Trailer.

Anza-Borrego Desert State Park - Borrego Palm Canyon Campground, Borrego Springs, California

Date of Stay: November, 2011 - $35.00
Overall Rating:      

Lovely park, nice long pull throughs, spacing between sites was nicely private and well planned. As others have mentioned, the hookups can be in awkward location depending on how you pull in. The biggest complaint I have is that the sewer covers were put in backwards in most spots. Not all, which makes me think the contractor wasn't paying attention or didn't know any better. But if you use a 90 degree elbow connector from your hose to the drain pipe gasket, be prepared to run your hose around to make the bend. Other than that, it was quiet (except for the coyotes!), clean, peaceful, and exactly what we were looking for in Anza-Borrego. We camped at Anza-Borrego Desert State Park - Borrego Palm Canyon Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Oasis Las Vegas RV Resort, Las Vegas, Nevada

Date of Stay: August, 2011 - $55.00
Overall Rating:      

We're not really "Resort" campers but tried a "staycation" and thoroughly enjoyed the two pools, nice shady premium spot, and watching the comings and goings of a lot of rental units over weekend. Rate reflects a Good Sam discount and is a little steeper than our usual spend. Overall, a very nice facility. We camped at Oasis Las Vegas RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Kyle Canyon Campground, Toiyabe National Forest, Mount Charleston, Nevada

Date of Stay: August, 2011 - $23.00
Overall Rating:      

This campground suffers from over-use and under-maintenance. Several folks roll or sneak in and use it as a day-use picnic area and treat it like the maid's coming by later to pick up for them. Trash in site, on trails, between sites. Roads are overgrown with trees and bushes scraping your rig every where you turn. People doing dishes at the fresh water spigots is never a good sign, bees collected there which made it a challenge to top up on water. When they close the campgrounds on the other side of the mountain next year for remodeling, we'll be looking for somewhere else to cool off on weekends. We camped at Kyle Canyon Campground, Toiyabe National Forest in a Travel Trailer.

Watchman Campground (NPS Campground), Zion National Park, Utah

Date of Stay: August, 2011 - $18.00
Overall Rating:      

Given the location and scenery we loved it here. They have rebuilt the bathrooms in loop A & B, they are nice and clean so far, I hope our fellow campers keep them that way. Campground was full all three nights we were there in the middle of an August heatwave and didn't have any power issues (30 Amp service). Place is pretty booked up through Thanksgiving, and we felt lucky to have been able to stay there this summer even with the heat. No showers, but that's part of why we have the trailer. We camped at Watchman Campground (NPS Campground) in a Travel Trailer.

McWilliams Campground - Humboldt Toiyabe Forest, Las Vegas, Nevada

Date of Stay: July, 2011 - $21.00

A very well kept NFS park. No services to speak of. We love staying here though. Generators allowed. Longer rigs need to watch the dip when exiting, the drive crosses a couple of low spots and we've seen some folks bottom out.
