Mtn. View RV (formerly Mtn. View Holiday Trav-L-Park), Baker City, Oregon

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

We made our reservations at Mtn View two-years in advance of the 2017 Total Solar Eclipse. During the few months before the eclipse, we made numerous modifications to our plans. Owner Kari gladly accommodated our frequent changes. She is very personable, professional, and well respected in the Baker City community. Without hesitation, we would return here. We camped at Mtn. View RV (formerly Mtn. View Holiday Trav-L-Park) in a Motorhome.

Visit the bank that has the worlds biggest gold nugget on display. The Oregon Trail Interpretative Center is very well done and well worth our time.

Whispering Elms Campground, Baker, Nevada

Date of Stay: May, 2016 - $33.00
Overall Rating:      

This is by far our best choice for full hookups near Great Basin National Park. The campground itself is humble by many standards, but the facility is clean and tidy, the staff are friendly and helpful, and they obviously take pride in their work. Verizon MiFi worked satisfactorily. Past comments about long-term residents no longer remain accurate. We camped at Whispering Elms Campground in a Motorhome.

There is one self-serve "service station" in Baker. It does offer diesel. It's over a 100 miles to the next service station if you're headed towards Las Vegas on US93.

Winnebago Service Campground (For Service Customers Only), Forest City, Iowa

Date of Stay: June, 2015 - $1.00
Overall Rating:      

We came here for expert-level service on our 10-year old Winnebago motorhome. June is within their busy season, so we made service appointment back 4 months ago. There are 50-amp hookups in their service section, but now sewer or water. There is dump station and potable water available nearby in their WIT rally field. Most sites filled up during the late afternoon, but there was always a few vacant sites at the end of the day, at least during our stay. We camped at Winnebago Service Campground (For Service Customers Only) in a Motorhome.

There is only one laundromat in Forest City. After seeing its condition first hand, we traveled 12 miles south, where we found Lucky's Laundromat. Lucky's did not show up on our map search. Lucky's is a small but suitably clean and equipped. It is located at 961 W 3rd St in Garner, IA 50438 (43.102194, -93.611667).

CDI at 305 Nerem Dr in Forest City was recommended as a reliable and popular motorhome collision shop.

Stagecoach RV Park, St Augustine, Florida

Date of Stay: November, 2014 - $44.00
Overall Rating:      

Convenient to tourist attractions in St Augustine, and close to I-95 (exit 318). We would return here except for one reason. Very few sites have clear view of TV satellites from a rooftop dish mounted near front of a RV. There are a few more suitable sites for a rooftop dish mounted at rear of RV. But most sites have trees that completely block satellite view. If relevant, book early and request site with satellite view. Specify front or rear dish mount. Campground does have cable TV. We camped at Stagecoach RV Park in a Motorhome.

Rainbow RV Resort, Frostproof, Florida

Date of Stay: February, 2014 - $35.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a very nice RV resort with park models and a large area for RVs. Most are 5th wheelers. There is nothing fancy here, but the rental rates are not bad. The sites are reasonably spaced, but there is no landscaping that provides privacy. Verizon cell and MiFi coverage are excellent. The resort is within commuting distance to Disney World and Universal Studios. We would come back here. We camped at Rainbow RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Everglades Isle Motorcoach Resort (Class A only), Everglades City, Florida

Date of Stay: January, 2014 - $65.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a very upscale RV resort in an "off the beaten track" location. The resort is across the inlet from several airboat tour companies. They are somewhat noisy between 8am and 4pm, but otherwise, the resort is very quiet. We found the noise undesirable but reasonable. The resort is very convenient to Everglades National Park. Alligators are plentiful, but I recommend you do not pull over on side of road. There are several much safer viewing sites with parking lots and lots of alligators. We even saw a small herd of manatees at one of the visitor centers. We enjoyed the sunset boat tour that departed from the nearby National Park Visitor Center. There are few restaurants in Everglades City, and all were closed the one night we were in the mood for one. The nearest full-service commercial centers are in Naples, about 15 miles away. We would return. We camped at Everglades Isle Motorcoach Resort (Class A only) in a Motorhome.

Fort Pickens Campground, Pensacola, Florida

Date of Stay: December, 2013 - $13.00
Overall Rating:      

What a great location! We stayed here 5 days. December is definitely the least popular season. Weather was gorgeous one day, cold and rainy another day, with remaining days semi-comfortable. On the one gorgeous day, we had the spectacular white sand beach all to ourselves. The beach is an easy 300-m walk from Loop A, which is close enough to the beach to hear the surf. Our ankles quickly got chewed up by no-see-ums, so we suggest regular use of insect repellant while in campground. Verizon voice and MiFi worked well. Potable water appears to very hard, which could be an issue with RV plumbing after awhile. We camped at Fort Pickens Campground in a Motorhome.

Pontchartrain Landing, New Orleans, Louisiana

Date of Stay: November, 2013 - $45.00
Overall Rating:      

There were unoccupied, big rig sites during Thanksgiving week. Verizon voice and MiFi coverage were strong. Previous reviews expressed concerns over the industrial setting, but we did not share those concerns. There were some traffic and train noise, but the sound levels were not very loud. The RV Park itself is attractive, with lots of late-model motorhomes and trailers. We arrived during a million-dollar expansion of the guest facilities. There is a nearby supermarket, but other types of shopping and services required a 30-minute or more excursion. We camped at Pontchartrain Landing in a Motorhome.

Natchez State Park, Natchez, Mississippi

Date of Stay: November, 2013 - $18.00
Overall Rating:      

Even though previous reviews gave helpful directions, we still got a little lost. We finally found a turn-around spot on a very narrow road, but we had to wait until another motorhome unhitched and backed out of the same turn-around. We paid too much attention to our smartphone's navigation directions. Hopefully, the following will help others. Exit US61 1.4-miles east from the Natchez Trace Parkway interchange. From US61, turn south on to State Park Road. Proceed south for a short 0.3-miles. Turn left on to Wickcliff Road, which is not well marked. Ignore the State Park sign at this intersection, which directs you to an alternative entrance to Loop A. Proceed east on Wickcliff Road for a short 0.4-miles. You will see a large masonry portal to Natchez State Park. Exit south from Wickcliff Road, and proceed 1.4 miles on the unnamed paved Park road, past Loop A to Loop B. Otherwise, we very much enjoyed our stay here. We will return to enjoy more of historic Natchez. We camped at Natchez State Park in a Motorhome.

Dam Site River Campground COE, Eureka Springs, Arkansas

Date of Stay: November, 2013 - $10.00
Overall Rating:      

We moved here when the nearby COE campground closed for the season (Oct 31). Campground was 80% full during weekend, but pretty empty during the week. Fall colors were near their peak. Pines loop has 30/20 amp service, while the river loop has 50/30/20 plus water hookups. Fellow campers were courteous. This site is popular with fishermen, who seemed to do well fishing the river for trout. One night, our GPS put us on State Highways 23/187 north out of the city of Eureka Springs. There is a 11-ft 10-inch clearance single-lane wooden-bridge on this route with a 10T load-limit. State Hwy 187 southwest of US62 is just fine for big rigs. Our Verizon voice and MiFi service worked well enough at the river loop (site #10), but a camper had just moved out of the Pine Loop because of problems with cell coverage and tree canopies blocking satellite TV view. We would gladly return here. We camped at Dam Site River Campground COE in a Motorhome.

Dam Site Lake Campground COE, Eureka Springs, Arkansas

Date of Stay: October, 2013 - $9.00
Overall Rating:      

This federal Corps of Engineers (COE) campground was an excellent choice for us while we enjoyed tourist activities at Eureka Springs, which is about 20-minutes away by car. The campground closes for winter on October 31 (3PM), but we were told by the local COE office that at least one nearby campground remains open during the winter. This campground is among the most peaceful that we've enjoyed, with countless stars filling the nighttime sky. Fall colors have not peaked yet, but we were told that this year is an unusually late for tree colors. Verizon voice and MiFi coverage is reliable. There is no dump station, but there is one at nearby COE Dam Site River Campground. While traveling to the Eureka Springs area, be prepared to drive many miles on narrow paved roads with frequent curves. We averaged about 30-miles per hour with our 40-ft diesel pusher. We camped at Dam Site Lake Campground COE in a Motorhome.

Oak Grove COE, De Queen, Arkansas

Date of Stay: October, 2013 - $6.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a very pleasant and well-maintained public campground with spacious sites. It is managed by the US Corps of Engineers, so fees are inexpensive. Verizon voice and MiFi coverage is excellent. Many sites do not have satellite view from roof-mounted TV dishes. Based on our motorhome's power center, the campground's 50-amp receptacle seemed to be wired for 30-amp, at least at Site 11. We camped at Oak Grove COE in a Motorhome.

Robinson's Landing, Lawton, Oklahoma

Date of Stay: October, 2013 - $12.00
Overall Rating:      

The City of Layton manages two campsites along the shores of Lake Laytonka: Eastside and Robinson’s Landing. The facilities look more like state parks than a city parks. We stayed at the north-side Robinson's Landing site, which, to our eyes, is more appealing than the city’s Eastside campsite. Eastside campsite is larger and more open, with few trees but great views of the lake. It also has a swimming beach, but it has more of a “party reputation.” Robinson's Landing is quieter, with 29 sites, 50-foot concrete pads, ample shade, 50/30/20 amp service, and potable water hookups. It is well maintained, which was not the case until recent years. We arrived mid-afternoon on an October Friday during the 3-day Columbus Day weekend, and most sites were vacant. The campground did not fill up during the weekend. Sites cannot be reserved. An attendant makes her rounds each day to collect fees. We had a clear satellite view from Site 28, but tree-canopies might present obstacles at many other sites. Verizon voice and MiFi worked well. Robinson’s Landing has a small grocery store/pizza parlor, shower house, boat ramp, and ample parking. Fellow campers were courteous, and police occasionally patrolled the campground. Our biggest problem was finding Robinson's Landing. We asked directions from a very helpful federal employee at nearby Wichita Mountain Mountains National Wildlife Refuge. For safety reasons, he recommended that big rigs use Routes 49 and 58, which have higher road-standards than the Meers route. From Route 49, turn north onto Route 58 (34.7246, -98.4637), which originates 2-miles east from the small town of Medicine Park. Head north for 5-miles on Route 58 (34.7824, -98.5106), turn west on NW Meers Porter Hill Road, and proceed west for 1.3 miles (34.7823, -98.5316). There are several small blue signs that direct you 0.4 miles south into Robinson's Landing campground (34.7772, -98.5328). Eastside campsite (34.7535, -98.4873) is about 2.5-miles north of the intersection of Routes 49 and 58. We camped at Robinson's Landing in a Motorhome.

Palo Duro Canyon State Park, Canyon, Texas

Date of Stay: October, 2013 - $24.00
Overall Rating:      

This is an addition to recent reviews. The campground was fully booked for the 3-day Columbus Day weekend in October, and we did not have reservations. Luckily, we arrived Monday and were able to stay for 4-days until Friday morning. Mesquite campground is among the quietest at which we've ever stayed, without even a muted hint of a truck or train in the distance. The moonless nights revealed billions of stars and a brilliant Milky Way. We camped at Palo Duro Canyon State Park in a Motorhome.

John Martin Reservoir State Park, Hasty, Colorado

Date of Stay: October, 2013 - $17.00
Overall Rating:      

While very popular during the summer months, the campground was nearly empty in early October. Most of the prime lakeside sites were vacant! Verizon voice and MiFi services were adequate. We would return to this State Park campground. We camped at John Martin Reservoir State Park in a Motorhome.
