Dakota Ridge RV Park, Golden, Colorado

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $59.00
Overall Rating:      

As described in previous reviews, location, location, location. This park is so convenient to freeways, shopping, movies, downtown Golden and Denver. Clearly it's banking on that convenience to command the high price. The page of rules and regulations are enough to make even a Washington DC bureaucrat blush. We stayed here about 5 years ago in one of the end sites with a private patio. The grass was greener, patio table looked new, and the office accepted our UPS mail forwarded package without hesitation. It seemed like a very guest friendly, welcoming resort. It was expensive then too, but not nearly what it is today. Because we had such a positive experience the first time, we neglected to read updated reviews of this park on RV Park Reviews. Big mistake. The price has gone up, but the amenities are going down, like they no longer accept UPS or FedEx packages for guests, and the overall appearance isn't what we remembered. Our 2 week visit was in a site with the communal patio area, and we had to disconnect the tow vehicle and park it in front of the motorhome to reach hookups. The grass was dead and the patio tables had seen better days. While our neighbors were very nice, they had a large family BBQ which, through no fault of their own, placed the party right in front of our motorhome. When it came to laundry, the washers were $2.50 and the dryers were $.25 for 4 minutes and they don't even get hot. After what felt like a trip to Las Vegas and a session with a slot machine, we gave up on the dyer and took everything back to the rig still damp. Even the laundry is no bargain here. Sadly, there is so much untapped potential, but you don't get much bang for your buck anymore. It's a mystery why Good Sam rates this park a 10. We won't be back. We camped at Dakota Ridge RV Park in a Motorhome.

Oasis RV Resort, Amarillo, Texas

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $26.00
Overall Rating:      

Because of the close proximity to the I40, this park appears to attract mostly overnight stays. We stayed for a week, using the Oasis as our base for visiting Amarillo. It's location on the west end of town makes it convenient to get into the city, but far enough away to be out of the city traffic. The asphalt interior roads are wide and big rig friendly. The sites are level concrete pads with a patio and most have picnic tables. We had plenty of room for our 40 ft motorhome and tow vehicle in a pull thru site. Restrooms were reasonably clean and laundry was $1 to wash and $1 to dry, with laundry facilities in each bathhouse. It was hot and windy, but the pool area was very nice and the clubhouse patio was covered so you could get out of the sun. We would definitely use this park again when visiting Amarillo in the future. We camped at Oasis RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We attended the Palo Duro Canyon State Park Amphitheater Musical "Texas" and it was a great show. Very patriotic. Also, if you like vintage RV's and motorcycles and nostalgic memorabilia, check out Jack Sisemore's free admission RV Museum. It's an amazing personal collection.

Lake Dardnelle State Park, Russellville, Arkansas

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $32.00
Overall Rating:      

This state park has 2 sections, Russellville Area and Dardanelle Area. The Russellville Area is the only one that offers 50 amp FHU, but we drove through the other park to see how it compared and it was really nice too, but 30 amp and no sewer. Since we wanted to stay for 1 week, we opted for the 50 amp FHU section. Our site was in Camp Area A, which is set up nicely for larger rigs and our site was right on the shore of Lake Dardanelle. This is a beautiful park, and most of the sites in Camp Area A are right on the water, with picture perfect sunsets. The sites are paved, reasonably spaced, with a nice gravel patio area, picnic table and a post for lanterns. Bathrooms were reasonably clean and the staff were very friendly. The visitor center has over 7,000 gallons of fresh water aquariums featuring fish found in the lake, a live bee hive, and other interesting exhibits. The park is a short drive to downtown Russellville for quick access to shopping, movie theater. and restaurants. We would definitely stay here again, but would suggest to anyone wishing to come to make a reservation. This is a very popular summer vacation destination and with good reason. We camped at Lake Dardnelle State Park in a Motorhome.

If you like to walk or bike, Bona Dea Trails and Sanctuary is just minutes from Lake Dardanelle State Park, with the entrance on Lakefront Drive. Some of the trails are paved and some are more rustic for hikers. Because the day we went it was hot, it was nice to ride our bikes under the canopies of the trees and we packed a lunch to eat in the picnic area.

Catherine's Landing, Hot Springs, Arkansas

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $35.00
Overall Rating:      

This beautiful family vacation destination park is extremely well laid out for all sized RV units. With the Yurts, Cottages, Tent Camping and RV sites, there are accommodations for all types of camp opportunities. We were intrigued with the interior road names like Half n Half, Buttermilk, 2 Percent and our road of Holy Cow. It all makes sense when you learn the park was built on the historic Humphreys Dairy cow pasture. The old dilapidated dairy structure is still standing across the street from the entrance to the RV park and makes for an interesting photo. Because shopping and tourist attractions are driving distance, would recommend a car. As mentioned in previous reviews, this is a really nice park. The paved sites are roomy, hookups work great, trash is picked up daily at your site, and bathrooms were clean. Our site was near the launch, so it was easy to get our kayaks in the water. They rent kayaks, canoes and boats, as well as bikes and golf carts. Would have given this park a 10, but the equipment in the laundry was in sad shape. One of the 4 washers was out of order, and another guest said it had been like that when she arrived 3 weeks ago. While a $1 to wash and $1 to dry is more than reasonable, this park is so impressive it was a bit disappointing. Having said that, we would definitely come again and would recommend this park to anyone coming to this area. We camped at Catherine's Landing in a Motorhome.

Would highly recommend spending at least a few hours at Garvan Woodland Gardens. The gardens are beautiful and the Anthony Chapel is an architectural piece of artwork. Lake Catherine State Park is also beautiful, has several well marked hiking trails, and entrance to the park is free.

Tom Sawyer's Mississippi River Park, West Memphis, Arkansas

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

This is such an interesting RV park based on the fact that timing is everything. When the Mississippi River floods, this lovely park disappears under water. It's hard to imagine, so we went to the park website to see the flood photos. They are amazing. The two sections of this park, River Front and Woods, are both nice. If you prefer shade, the Woods section is best, but if you want an amazing view of the Mississippi, the River Front is wonderful. We were in the end site #66, which is a paved, angled, pull thru with plenty of length for our 40 ft motorhome and toad. Since we were only planning to stay for 3 nights, we didn't have any need to disconnect to toad. Price is based on Good Sam discount. While there is no cable, our TV antenna gave us an adequate number of stations and our Sprint Broadband internet worked well. The grassy area along the river have many benches so you can sit and enjoy the tug boats and barges. We had a treat when the huge American Queen paddle boat passed by and got some great photos. With free laundry facilities, clean restrooms, daily trash pick up and a friendly staff, this is an excellent park to chill out for a few days. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Tom Sawyer's Mississippi River Park in a Motorhome.

Nashville KOA, Nashville, Tennessee

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $83.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed here 5 nights and really liked our roomy, deluxe pull thru site. It had a nice patio and the patio furniture looked new. There are a lot of improvements and upgrades, like the new pool area. Like others, we think it's pricey, but the proximity to the Opryland Hotel and downtown Nashville makes it a great location and that's what you're paying for. We didn't use the convenient $10 downtown shuttle, but it runs regularly and a lot of guest did use it. We preferred to drive and found a $10 a day parking lot on Korean Veterans Blvd and 5th Ave S that allowed us stay as long as we liked and leave when we were ready. Traffic downtown wasn't as bad as we were led to believe, but that could change with special events. We like this KOA and even though it's expensive, it's a truly nice park and we will definitely come back again when visiting Nashville. We camped at Nashville KOA in a Motorhome.

Carowinds Camp Wilderness Resort, Charlotte, North Carolina

Date of Stay: May, 2016 - $45.00
Overall Rating:      

We used this campground as a base for 9 days while visiting family in Charlotte and it's proximity to the Interstate made it convenient for getting around. There are plenty of trees and it's a pretty park. Our site was an end pull thru #193 and it was plenty long for our 40 ft motorhome and tow vehicle. The sites are narrow, but each has a built in BBQ and picnic table on the grass between the sites. We were here before the Memorial Day weekend, which will begin the busy season for this campground and I don't think we would want to be here when it's full. Interior roads are very narrow which would make it difficult to maneuver if you were trying to leave in your car and an RV was trying to find their site. Bathrooms were clean, but the laundry with only 2 washers and 2 dryers is a joke for a park this size and it was filthy. So we would use this park again, but only in the off season. We camped at Carowinds Camp Wilderness Resort in a Motorhome.

Travelers Rest / N. Greenville KOA , Travelers Rest, South Carolina

Date of Stay: May, 2016 - $56.00
Overall Rating:      

This KOA is small, but in a great location for visiting Greenville, and biking the Swamp Rabbit trail from Travelers Rest to Greenville. The family owners have gone to a lot of trouble to make the camping experience here pleasant. Bathrooms, laundry and grounds are very clean. Garbage pick up is at your site daily. We stayed 5 nights in a pull thru at the back of the park and it was spacious. The sites are a comfortable distance apart and all come with a patio and picnic table. We've always thought that the KOA pricing was high, but they are geared to families and activities for the kids and that's baked into the price. So for all those who complain about the pricing, perhaps they would be better served to seek out resorts with concrete pads and lake views. After all, this IS a family campground. We will definitely use this park again for our next visit to Greenville. We camped at Travelers Rest / N. Greenville KOA in a Motorhome.

Swamp Rabbit Rails to Trails paved bike path is great. Most of it is under a canape of trees, so even on a warm day, it's shady. Best done on a weekday, because it is popular.

Lake Greenwood Resort , Cross Hill, South Carolina

Date of Stay: May, 2016 - $45.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a beautiful Class A Only resort and the terraced lots give you plenty of privacy. We chose a site in the cheap seats and still had a spectacular view of Lake Greenwood. Many of the lots are privately owned, and from the nice upgrades, I'm guessing they are not available for rent. The clubhouse is really nice and the restrooms are spotless. Surprised that a park this size would only have a laundry with 2 washers & dryers, but many RV's these days are equipped with their own. If you want a nice restful place to stay, this is it. The only downside is that it is rather remote, and trains pass at various hours fairly close by. But we still found this to be a really nice park. We camped at Lake Greenwood Resort in a Motorhome.

We really like this park! All the sites are concrete and most are pull thru unless you want a lake view site. Trash is picked up every morning at your site, and laundry room and restrooms are spotless. The close proximity to Jekyll and St. Simon's Islands make this the perfect park for those who like to bike ride. We've been here several times and will definitely come back again.

Wilderness RV Resorts at Silver Springs, Silver Springs, Florida

Date of Stay: April, 2016 - $42.00
Overall Rating:      

This park has 3 areas: Town, Village and Preserve Estates. The newest, with spacious concrete pads and nice wide interior roads is the Preserve Estates and that's where we stayed. Unlike the other two areas, there are no park models here, so lots of wide open space. Our site was a pull in, which gave us a nice view of a lake. The laundry room is small, but plenty of washers & dryers. The proximity to the Silver Springs State Park and the Silver Springs River is what brought us to this RV park. We did several kayak trips on the beautiful, clear springs river and, although we understand wild monkeys have been seen on the shores of the river, sadly didn't see any. Plenty of gators, birds and turtles. We'll definitely come back when we are in this area again. Great park! We camped at Wilderness RV Resorts at Silver Springs in a Motorhome.

San Antonio KOA, San Antonio, Texas

Date of Stay: September, 2015 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

We chose this park because of it's proximity to The Alamo and Riverwalk, which is about 5 miles. There is also a hike & bike trail that runs behind the KOA along the Salado Creek that's about 9 miles in length and goes through some very pretty parks and wooded areas. We liked the trail so much, we biked it twice during our 4 night stay. The park is more like a campground, but the sites were plenty long and wide. A Prevost club was having a rally while we were there, and it was fun to walk around and see the new and old designs. If you are interested in visiting San Antonio, this is a great location. We camped at San Antonio KOA in a Motorhome.

Fort Stockton RV Park, Fort Stockton, Texas

Date of Stay: September, 2015 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

This is not a destination RV park, but a very convenient overnight stay. Many sites are pull thru, so you don't need to unhook your tow vehicle. It's an older, more rustic park but the staff are very friendly. The on-site Roadrunner Cafe, with it's limited menu, is a great alternative to cooking an evening meal. This is definitely an easy on, easy off from the Interstate 10. We've been here before and will continue to use this as a great overnight stop. We camped at Fort Stockton RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is a great overnight park when traveling the 10 highway (east or west) because it is located right off the highway. It's tucked back behind a now defunct dealership, but the interior roads are concrete and spacious. The pull thru packed gravel sites are nice if you are towing, because you don't need to unhook. This is a very clean, well laid out RV park. The staff are very nice and we will definitely use this RV park again in the future. We camped at Hacienda RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Tucson / Lazydays KOA, Tucson, Arizona

Date of Stay: September, 2015 - $35.00
Overall Rating:      

We've been staying at this park since it was Beaudry RV Resort, which was about 8 years ago. Lazydays took it over and it appears they have recently contracted with KOA to run it. The park has always been a very clean, well kept property and it is our Tucson "go-to" park when visiting family & friends. KOA is making some very nice improvements (i.e. solar panels which provide some covered spaces). Because there aren't any shade trees, the solar panels on the hotter days will provide a shield from the intense sun. After a long 400 mile drive, it was nice to have a dinner at the bar & grill. The menu is limited, but the food was good. The staff was professional and friendly. This will continue to be our favorite RV park while visiting in Tucson. We camped at Tucson / Lazydays KOA in a Motorhome.
