Lake Arrowhead State Park, Wichita Falls, Texas

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $30.00

Nice state park, not much shade. Surrounded by small trees for privacy on the site. Covered picnic tables which gives relief to the sun. No sites on the lake but it's close by. Good ATT service and open skies for satellite. Good for an overnight is passing through the area. Price was $22 plus $4 per person. We camped at Lake Arrowhead State Park 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.

Columbia Falls RV Park, Columbia Falls, Montana

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $50.00
Overall Rating:

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. We camped at Columbia Falls RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

The Canyon RV Resort on Sinclair Creek, Radium Hot Springs, British Columbia

Real nice park with ample room between sites. Trailer is parked on level rock pads with nice concrete patios. Vegetation between site for some privacy. Creek runs through campground. Narrow roads which can be tricky if other trailers are moving at the same time. We camped at The Canyon RV Resort on Sinclair Creek in a Fifth Wheel.

Townsend / Great Smokies KOA, Townsend, Tennessee

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $98.00
Overall Rating:

Our site 11 was a back in on the river with a small wood deck. Advertised as being right on the water but it was about 40' away. Tight spots but par for KOA's. There is extra charges for renting bikes ($5 an hour) and extra $3.50 a day for extra parking, among other things. One of the last parks on the road to the national park. This is the third park we've stayed at in the area through the years. Think we'll keep looking next time. We camped at Townsend / Great Smokies KOA in a Fifth Wheel.
