Fort Wilkins Historic State Park, Copper Harbor, Michigan

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $34.00
Overall Rating:      

You can have a 50 amp pull through site, or you can have wifi, but you can't have both. I stayed in the West Campground in a 50 amp pull through. Wifi is available in the East Campground at the laundry, and also at the Park Store, which was a bit over a half mile walk from my campsite. There is no AT&T cell signal here; the closest I found was up on Brockway Mountain, about a four mile drive. If you drive a diesel vehicle, be aware there is no diesel available here. The park and the area are beautiful and clean. The Brickside Brewery in town is a gem. We camped at Fort Wilkins Historic State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Rippling Stream Campground, Baltimore, Ohio

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $28.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed here because of the park's proximity to an art class that my wife attended. It was recommended by a friend of a friend. This was a mistake. We made our reservations about a month before our planned arrival, then decided we wanted to come in one day early, so we called three times during our drive to the park, and left a message each time; no one ever returned our call, yet the office was open when we arrived. The water here smells bad, tastes bad, and left a rusty residue in my water hookup port. All the sites are grass, and after some rain, we were essentially in a mud hole. Most of the sites are occupied by permanent residents. We would not stay here again under any circumstances. We camped at Rippling Stream Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Indian Lake State Park, Lakeview, Ohio

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $32.00
Overall Rating:      

This large, clean park is right on the lake. Most of the sites are electric only, but there are some full hook-up sites (50 amp electric, water, and sewer). Most of the shady sites are electric only, but there are a few shady sites with full hook-ups. Our site (D28) was in full sun, and had full hook-ups. AT&T cell phone signal was okay here. I would happily stay here again if I was back in the area. We camped at Indian Lake State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Hinton RV Park, Sikeston, Missouri

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $32.00
Overall Rating:      

I was only here for an overnight, but I really like this park, because they have an excellent wi-fi set up. When you go to logon on your laptop, there are 12 networks to pick from; I think this is because they have 12 different antennas or boosters throughout the park. In any case, the wi-fi works great, and that is important to me. In addition, the park is neat and clean, there is some landscaping, the sites are plenty long, the cable works beautifully, and they escort you to your site when you check-in. I will be back if I return to this area again. We camped at Hinton RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

The food tourist attraction in Sikeston is Lambert's, where they throw rolls, but I had been there before. So I went to JD's Steakhouse; good food at reasonable prices.

Campfire Lodgings, Asheville, North Carolina

Date of Stay: June, 2014 - $45.00
Overall Rating:      

Gorgeous views from the mountain looking down on the valley below; good Wi-Fi; well-managed. At first I was concerned that I couldn't do much walking or bicycle riding in this park, but fortunately both are not too terribly far away. There is a great walking path at Beaver Lake about a 6 minute drive away; park in the lot on Merrimon Avenue at the bird sanctuary. Bike trails are a bit further away at Bent Creek. We would love to stay here again if we return to the area. We camped at Campfire Lodgings in a Travel Trailer.

We only stayed one night, but I would be happy to be here for a week or more. Paved roads and pads, long pull throughs, wifi worked great, nice landscaping. Lots of retail nearby to take care of whatever you need. We'll be back the next time we're in Nashville. We camped at Nashville KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Downtown Riverside RV Park, North Little Rock, Arkansas

Date of Stay: May, 2014 - $23.00
Overall Rating:      

Just fine for an overnight. As others have noted, it's just a big parking lot, but it's right on the river, just off the interstate. The Clinton library and other points of interest are within walking distance. WiFi worked great. I would happily stay here again. We camped at Downtown Riverside RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

High Island RV Park, High Island, Texas

Date of Stay: April, 2014 - $21.00
Overall Rating:      

The reason I liked this park is because it's within walking distance of several bird sanctuaries. I was here for the spring bird migration, and stayed for one week (weekly rate reflected in rate shown). There are a few pull through sites, but not many, perhaps a half dozen; most are back-in. There is only one bathroom, but I never used theirs. The park is very quiet at night. I slept with the windows open each night. The park stays full in April (and perhaps part of March and May as well) because of all the birders who stay here during migration. So you'll almost certainly need a reservation ahead of time to stay here on that timing. I plan to come back here again next year for spring migration birding. We camped at High Island RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Drifters Resort, Rockport, Texas

Date of Stay: November, 2013 - $35.00
Overall Rating:      

I was here for four nights, and thought it was okay. What I liked is that it was very quiet, especially at night, when I slept with my windows open with no problem. Also the sites are quite roomy, not crowded together. I also liked that there were many mature trees. There are mainly winter Texans and long term residents here, but none of the sites looked junky. The cable TV was a hassle; you get a box from the office when you check in, and you have to unhook the cable to your TV, and then rehook it up again with the cable box. It was a pain in the...neck, and then when I got it all hooked up, I got a message on the screen that said "Your smart card is expired; contact your cable company to get a new one". The office was closed, so I unhooked everything so I could use my antennae to watch the two channels available through it. Also, they overcharged me by one night, but they caught it before I brought it to their attention, and wrote me a check to correct it; not sure why they didn't just issue a credit on my card, but a check worked fine. We camped at Drifters Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Gulf Waters RV Resort, Port Aransas, Texas

Date of Stay: November, 2013 - $54.00
Overall Rating:      

We've stayed in perhaps four dozen different RV parks in fifteen states over the past four years, and this is one of the top three we've seen. We originally had planned to stay here for two nights, but liked it so much we extended our stay, twice, and ended up staying a total five nights. As other reviewers have noted, the place is beautiful, well landscaped and immaculate. The Gulf coast is just a few steps away via a boardwalk over the dunes. Wi-Fi is strong and fast, and everything else works well. The one downside is that the locations is somewhat remote; limited dining and shopping options are ten minutes away in Port Aransas, and for extensive dining and shopping options one must go to Corpus Christi, about a half hour drive. I hope we have the chance to come back soon. We camped at Gulf Waters RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Pecan Grove RV Park, Austin, Texas

Date of Stay: November, 2013 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a fun and funky place, and we loved it. The good: it's a great location, with numerous restaurants, bars, and live music within easy walking distance; the residents (yes, there are quite a few permanent residents here) are friendly and interesting; and if you like shade on a hot day, the trees here are beautiful and numerous. The not as good: we didn't have getting in and out in our 31' Airstream, but we saw a large Class A that was having problems making a turn; it's cash or check only, no credit cards; they do not have a web site so getting information about the park is dependent on web sites like this one. I had heard that a stay required making reservations weeks or months in advance, but we only called ahead by one time and got a spot; maybe we just got lucky. We will be back (assuming we can get a spot). We camped at Pecan Grove RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Enchanted Trails RV Park & Trading Post, Albuquerque, New Mexico

Date of Stay: October, 2013 - $48.00
Overall Rating:      

Stayed here a couple of nights prior to the balloon fiesta. It's an okay place but nothing special. They do have some cool old travel trailers. The worst things about the place for me was that the larger stones used for the gravel streets and sites were very hard on my old dog's feet; she could barely get around. While they are happy to have dogs here, I would not consider the place dog friendly since there were not good places to walk the dog. In addition to the stones, there were some stickers as well that my dog picked up in her feet. We camped at Enchanted Trails RV Park & Trading Post in a Travel Trailer.

Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta Park, Albuquerque, New Mexico

Date of Stay: October, 2013 - $80.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed in the VIP West lot; there are several different RV lots, and they vary quite a bit from one to another. So you should read these reviews carefully to understand which area is being described. As has been pointed out, in the VIP West area there are no hookups, it's strictly dry camping. What I was told was that "friendly" generators were allowed, meaning those that are quiet like a Honda or Yamaha; unfortunately some of my neighbors used the very loud commercial generators. My dog had a very hard time with the asphalt surface, as it included some larger stones. Staying here is not inexpensive. Despite all these downsides, I have to give the park a 6, because the balloon fiesta is such a delightful experience. It was only about a five minute walk from our trailer to the balloon field. And on a couple of mornings hundreds of balloons came right over our rig. Unbelievable. I plan to return for the festival next year. We camped at Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta Park in a Travel Trailer.

Twin Fountains RV Park, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma

Date of Stay: October, 2013 - $36.00
Overall Rating:      

This is the way an RV resort is supposed to be. Lots of trees, grass, and water, and the place appears well managed. I loved this place, and was sorry I was only staying one night. The only reason that I didn't give it a 10 is that there is a little noise from the nearby traffic; however, it was not loud enough to keep me from sleeping peacefully all night. We camped at Twin Fountains RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Taos Valley RV Park & Campground, Taos, New Mexico

Date of Stay: July, 2013 - $28.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed at this park a year ago, and came back for a week this summer. PROs: Easy to bicycle into town with bike lanes almost all the way to the plaza; nice views of the mountains from most sites; trail to walk the dog (although it's not very long). CONs: Some sites don't have 50 amp, some don't have sewer; large rocks on roads and sites were hard on my dog's feet. We would stay here again, because we value the nice bicycle ride to the plaza. We camped at Taos Valley RV Park & Campground in a Travel Trailer.
