Mesquite Spring (NPS Campground), Death Valley National Park, California

Date of Stay: February, 2015 - $6.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a somewhat primitive campground at the northern end of Death Valley NP. We happened to try to camp there Valentine's Day weekend and the campground was full. We took the advice on the entry sign and drove the 15 or so miles east and out of the park to a clearing well off the road and had a wonderful quiet night. Returned to the campground the next morning and got a site. By Monday it was nearly empty. Poorly delineated campsites. The place has seen heavy use but was reasonably clean - very little trash. Wonderful views of the surrounding mountains. The campground is situated on a major wash and offers wonderful day-hike opportunities. Water and dump available. Limited phone service. 'Campground Full' sign only posted at campground entrance so you won't know until you get there if sites are available. Best campground in the park if you want to be 'out there'. We camped at Mesquite Spring (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

Shell Mound County Park, Cedar Key, Florida

Date of Stay: February, 2013 - $15.00
Overall Rating:      

This campground is administered by Levy County in the Lower Suwanee National Wildlife Refuge. It is small and well-kept, with friendly office staff. The campground is very close to the water, but not right on the shore. Extremely quiet. Clean restroom and shower building. The Refuge offers hiking trails, fishing, birding, kayaking, and an archaeological site (the shell mound) There are new fishing/birding decks. We had excellent cellphone coverage and MiFi reception here. Close to the town of Cedar Key, but stock up on supplies at Chiefland on your way down. Length of stay here is limited to 7 nights. We camped at Shell Mound County Park in a Motorhome.

Shired Island Campground, Old Town, Florida

Date of Stay: February, 2013 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

This beachfront campground is administered by Dixie County within the Lower Suwanee National Wildlife Refuge. This is a breathtakingly beautiful place on a white sand beach, but apparently it is heavily used for local partying on the weekends, and as a result there is trash everywhere. We picked up multiple bags of trash during our 4 day stay. There is a bathroom with flush toilets and 1 shower that has hot water: not very clean. There is no potable water, WiFi, or cell phone reception. There is a dumpsite and a brand new fishing pier. Come with a good stock of water and groceries, because the nearest shopping is at least a 30 minute drive. The only noises here are the wild hogs rooting in the bush, and the tide splashing up on the beach. The fee quoted is for non-county residents; residents pay $10. We camped at Shired Island Campground in a Motorhome.

Chassahowitzka River Campground, Homosassa, Florida

Date of Stay: January, 2013 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

This is one of our favorite campgrounds in Florida. Off the beaten path, quiet, and a river that is abounding with wildlife. There is a boat ramp in the campground where you can rent canoes and kayaks. You can paddle down secluded creeks, and view the Seven Sisters springs that feed the river; or travel down the river itself to the gulf. Look out for manatees, alligators, dolphins, fish, and a myriad of birds. The campground is under new management, and has built a brand new shower/restroom/laundry building that is kept spotlessly clean. The sites are large and sheltered under huge live oak trees. On a practical note, there is a Publix near by, a Wal-Mart 3 miles north, and a major shopping area 20 minutes south. We camped at Chassahowitzka River Campground in a Motorhome.

Lyon King Campground, Old Town, Florida

Date of Stay: January, 2013 - $22.00
Overall Rating:      

Basically a big open field with a few newer trees, a couple older trees, a poorly maintained community building housing laundry/shower and restrooms. Restrooms were not clean and there was no TP. This is a no frills fishing destination although because of increasing pollution in the Suwannee the fishing has been going downhill. Biting gnats or noseeums were nasty. There are some interesting back roads and small towns in the area worth visiting. Some birding but not so much this time of year. We camped at Lyon King Campground in a Motorhome.

Waters Edge RV Park, Newport, North Carolina

Date of Stay: January, 2013 - $32.00
Overall Rating:      

This a long narrow park stretching from Highway 24 to Bogue Bay. Many long term residents but plenty of sites for those passing through. Roads were paved, sites mostly sand. Highway 24 is busy but the park is very quiet, especially in early January. Wi-Fi was available at the office at the front of the park but not in the park itself. There is ample shopping, restaurants, sight-seeing, etc just minutes away. Staff was friendly. No recycling available. We would stay again. We camped at Waters Edge RV Park in a Motorhome.

Choteau Mountain View Campground, Choteau, Montana

Date of Stay: August, 2012 - $35.00
Overall Rating:      

Just on the edge of Choteau. It is handy to Glacier and other nearby attractions. No shade, just gravel lanes with hook-ups. Nice park and walking path in town just a few blocks away. There is a golf course just over the hill from the RV park. We camped at Choteau Mountain View Campground in a Motorhome.

Niobrara State Park, Niobrara, Nebraska

Date of Stay: August, 2012 - $18.00
Overall Rating:      

An amazing state campground at the confluence of the Niobrara River and the Missouri River. Great views of the rivers. Picnic areas and tent camping areas near the river. The showers were 'pay' so take quarters with you. The $18 rate did not include $5 per vehicle Nebraska Parks fee so we payed $28. We camped at Niobrara State Park in a Motorhome.

Optimists Campground (AKA City Campground), Choteau, Montana

Date of Stay: August, 2012 - $8.00
Overall Rating:      

In Choteau, east of the grain elevator is a picnic area. East of that across the creek is a small camping area next to the rodeo grounds. You can't beat $8 a night and its a nice quiet location next to a nice park. There is a walking path along the creek. We camped at Optimists Campground (AKA City Campground) in a Motorhome.

Goliad State Park, Goliad, Texas

Date of Stay: February, 2012 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

This was a great campground on the SE side of Goliad. There are other historical sites nearby in association with the State Park. The facilities are great with nicely spaced sites in the RV section. There are tent camping sites along the San Antonio River plus a large gravel parking area with camping sites around the periphery. The showers are great. There are hiking biking trails plus a very nice nature trail. The only downside was the traffic noise from the highway nearby. Traffic quieted by evening and the noise was not bothersome. We will be back for sure. We camped at Goliad State Park in a Motorhome.

Tumble In RV Park , Marfa, Texas

Date of Stay: February, 2012 - $24.00
Overall Rating:      

New, bare, no showers or restrooms, Wi-Fi working but weak. Good views of the open country around Marfa. We had the place to ourselves. It is between a highway (lightly traveled at night) and a railroad track so there will be some noise. Honor system check-in. Owner did respond to emails when I inquired about space available. It's a good place for a Marfa stopover. We camped at Tumble In RV Park in a Motorhome.

Blake Ranch RV Park & Horse Motel, Kingman, Arizona

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

Just east of Kingman, off the road far enough for noise not to be an issue. Older park but very well maintained. Great views, great book exchange. RV/Truck wash next door in case you just made the winter trip west on I-40. We camped at Blake Ranch RV Park & Horse Motel in a Motorhome.

Date of Stay: February, 2011 - $15.00

Nice little campground with lots of wildlife. The caverns are AWESOME and certainly worth the side trip off the interstate even if you don't camp. We camped at Caverns of Sonora RV Park in a Motorhome.
