Joe Wheeler State Park, Rogersville, Alabama

Date of Stay: October, 2018 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

We stopped here for a weekend on our way back home from a fall trip to the north because of the rave of others on this park. The park itself is nice with the lake, marina, golf course, lodge and restaurant but the campground was somewhat of a disappointment. Sites are wooded and set up for privacy but the pads are in poor shape. Mature trees that are braking the pads with the root system. You have to park just right to be able to open your slides and awning, not being able to use the awning. None to little ATT service and wifi. Campground says it has wifi but it doesn't. Over the air TV is spotty and too many trees for satellite. Been to quite a few state parks in Alabama and this one is rated towards the lower end. Think we'll pass on this one next time in the area. We camped at Joe Wheeler State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Terre Haute KOA, Terre Haute, Indiana

Date of Stay: October, 2018 - $75.00
Overall Rating:

I have to say was kind of worried about this place after reading others reviews but was pleasantly surprised after getting here. The super deluxe sites are real nice with full hookups and full concrete pads. It hadn't had much rain so didn't see the flooding others have said. Looks like more gravel has been brought in for roads and pads. Little café that served breakfast in the morning and meals in the evenings. Nice, friendly staff. It's rated as a KOA Journey but we think it's a step above. Little tricky getting here off the interstate but our GPS worked just fine. We camped at Terre Haute KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Grand Ecore RV Park, Natchitoches, Louisiana

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

New campground close to the Red River. The downfall is the terrible road to it. Lots of Pecan trees that offer shade to some spots. Nice concrete pads with patio and table. Good wifi and ATT service. If in the area this is the best campground. We camped at Grand Ecore RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice park with some tight spaces but some with good spacing. Nice landscaping and views of the mountains. Clean laundry, good wifi, ATT worked well. You can wash your rig for $8. They advertise about mobile techs on their web page, we used Glacier RV Repairs to fix a few problems we had. Andrew is very knowledgeable with a great attitude.
