Rancheros de Santa Fe Campground, Santa Fe, New Mexico

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $43.00
Overall Rating:

Fairly quiet CG with very friendly and helpful management. The interior roads are dirt, many with ruts and bumps so take your time. Site pads are somewhat close, gravel and ours was fairly level. Utilities were good and well placed. Although our back-in space was just long enough for our five-er, and there was not enough room for my big honkin' pickup, but they graciously allowed me to park in a nearby unused campsite. Great amenities here including a little "theater" where they show a video movie every night. They recycle paper, plastic & metal. Connectivity was excellent too, with unusually great WiFi and good signal from VzW. We camped at Rancheros de Santa Fe Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We did a day trip to Taos. Take the "low road" (US-285 & Rt 68 along the Rio Grande) one way and the "high road" (routes 503, 98, 76, 75, 518 & 68) the other. Another day trip to Bandelier NM with a stop at the White Rock Overlook. Finish the scenic loop by continuing west on route 4 through Valle Caldera Nat Preserve to US-550 back to Santa Fe.

Gaslight Square Mobile Home Park, Canutillo, Texas

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $32.00
Overall Rating:

Easy access to I-10 and like 20 min to downtown El Paso, but still relatively quiet, it was great for an overnight. The park is small and spacing is somewhat close, but all level concrete with good utilities and very clean. Not a lot of shade but there are a few trees. Although the office was closed on Sat, a manager came out to see if we needed anything, so we gave him payment info. VzW is strong, but I can't comment on the WiFi because I forgot to ask for the password. We camped at Gaslight Square Mobile Home Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Brantley Lake State Park, Carlsbad, New Mexico

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $18.00
Overall Rating:

The most outstanding quality of this CG is the price ($18) and it's quiet. It's at least 20 min to Carlsbad to get food/fuel/ice/etc and about 1.3 hours to Carlsbad Caverns NP. The SP has a nice lake that appears to support boating and fishing and there is a stream on the access road where we always saw people swimming, fishing and floating around in tubes, as well as a little playground and a gravel walking path to the lake. A few of the RV sites have a tree or 2 so some sites get some shade at different times of day. The humidity is low and it's hot in June with an almost constant breeze, if not wind. Electric was good (we didn't hook up to the water) and spacing was fair. They have a nice metal picnic table anchored to a concrete patio with a steel awning over it and a stone parapet on one side. VzW signal is excellent at 5 bars 4G, but there is no WiFi here. We camped at Brantley Lake State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Davis Mountains State Park, Fort Davis, Texas

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

Rate is $25 + $6 per person/per day = $37 for the 2 of us. Located right in the Davis Mountains, the park offers trails for hiking, mountain biking and horseback riding (bring your own horse, I guess). Several trails run loops up the nearby mountains and back. The park is quiet and wonderfully dark. It is quite a ways off the interstate via 2-lane paved roads. Roads and pads within the park are paved, and some (like ours) ran up a hill, so may require some leveling front-to-back. Electric & water were good, though older. The sewer has the "hinged aluminum cap" arrangement that make it hard to install a donut and elbow, and on top of that, some are actually raised so it's as high as my valve... our was essentially uphill, so we used the dump station. Some sites have partial shade and spacing is generous. Not a lot of amenities are offered, but there is a playground, ice and bins to recycle paper/plastic/aluminum. Connectivity is poor. No service for VzW unless you hike to a ridge, and then it's iffy. There is public WiFi but it is slow. Essentially no stores or gas stations near the park.... get it before you get too far from I-10. We camped at Davis Mountains State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Katy Lake RV Resort, Katy, Texas

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $42.00
Overall Rating:

Just an overnight stay. Not far off I-10 and fairly convenient to Houston, this park is knocking it outta the park for layout. Roads are concrete, wide and in great condition as are the pads & patios. Between sites is about 10' of well kept grass. Utilities are smartly placed towards the rear and are in good condition. No shade available but there is a nice lake with a sidewalk around it, and pool w/ gas grills, lounge, and more. The staff called me 48 hrs in advance to advise me they would charge my credit card and informed me of procedure to enter the park and find my space. Everything is clean and nice. We camped at Katy Lake RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

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

Close to I-10 but quietly situated next to the Llano River. Roads were gravel/dirt but wide and easy to nav. Pad also gravel/dirt with a small concrete pad for your tires. Good spacing with some trees for shade. Staff was very friendly and took us to our site. VzW at 3 bars and secure WiFi very good. We camped at Junction/North Llano River RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Lakeside RV Park, Livingston, Louisiana

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $38.00
Overall Rating:

Just an overnight for us. Convenient to hwy, occasional noise from nearby rd. Wide concrete roads, pads & patios w/ great utility pedestals. Sites are about 5-6' apart, but grass between sites and in park is healthy and trimmed, park is clean, well cared for. There is sparse shade except from the perimeter trees. There are many amenities including a lounge, covered pavilions and a sidewalk that runs around 2/3 of the lake. Staff was friendly and provided escort to the site that helped us back in. VzW is 4G with good coverage. WiFi very good. We camped at Lakeside RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Falling Waters State Park, Chipley, Florida

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $27.00
Overall Rating:

This was an overnight for us. You go to this park to get away. It's very quiet, a couple miles off I-10. Roads are 2-lane nicely paved until you get to the campground loop, where they are a little more than single-lane paved and old. Trees are trimmed high. We had gravel pullthru #19, which had the utilities too far forward to leave the truck in front of the camper without interfering with the P/T next to us. VERY shady and sites are roomy. There is a playground and a swim pond and pavilion. Some hiking, fishing and a waterfall. Ranger was terrific and fair connection to VzW (no WiFi). We camped at Falling Waters State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Silver Springs State Park (formerly Silver River State Park), Ocala, Florida

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $24.00
Overall Rating:

I have to say that for $24/night, this is the nicest CG we have stayed in. In cleanliness, it rates with $80 CGs. All roads paved, sites are packed pea gravel and well marked with new 20/30/50A power pedestals and dual spigot water, both well placed. The sites are huge with VG separation and many with partial to full shade (back-in sites are more shady). Our site had an older large picnic table, fire ring & grill on a pedestal, and still had enough room for a tent without crowding our 31" Fiver. RRs are wonderfully clean and showers had hand-held sprayers, clean wood bench and clothes pegs. A washer & dryer at the bath house with a big sink for washing clothing or dishes, plus an animal-proof garbage dumpster and co-mingled recycle bins. The Rangers were very knowledgeable & helpful. Firewood and ice for sale at the camping entrance. There are cabins available, too. We camped at Silver Springs State Park (formerly Silver River State Park) in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

For activities, rent a kayak at the main tourist entrance and paddle the lovely "paddle trail" which is shaded and alive with turtles, fish and birds of many descriptions. For eats, go to Mojo's Grill on SR40 a mile towards Ocala. They had nice selection of craft-brews, mouthwatering pulled pork, and I could barely finish my 1/4 serving of nachos. Yum!! You can go swimming at Juniper Springs just about 20-30 min east.

Kelly's RV Park, White Springs, Florida

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $27.00
Overall Rating:

Just an overnight for us on our way home. This park is mostly long term and seasonals. The roads are old and just sand/gravel. The sites are sand/gravel/grass with some tall weeds (they could use a trim). The pad was level enough we did not even unhook from the truck. Good spacing with some shade and each site has a trash can. No patio, picnic table or fire ring. No recycling at this time. WiFi has multiple secured access points and excellent coverage. If we need to stay in the area again, we may try another CG. We camped at Kelly's RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Interior roads were packed gravel. Sites had level gravel/grass pads with good spacing and utilities placed at the back. At our site, the water spigot was tight against the power pedestal so I could not use my Y adapter. Others were not placed the same. Sites had a grassy area with picnic table and fire ring/grill.

Tips for other Campers:

Be careful of GPS directions. Our Garmin led us to the wrong place using the campground name and, using the address had the right location, but routing was bad with overhanging trees and poor pavement. Owner said Google maps routing is also bad, bringing RVs to a low underpass near the bottom of a hill. I recommend from US24, W on Kochs Lane, S on Boninsinga.

R Campground Inc, Charles City, Iowa

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

Watch the trees on Clark St on your way in... stay to the left. Interior roads were dirt/gravel with some dips and potholes (take it slow). Self-checkin at a pedestal about 100 yards down. We called ahead so there was a packet for us with site#, bathroom codes and WiFi code. Sites were gravel pads (2" out) with fair spacing and room for my truck. Utilities placed in the middle of site. (Some "back in" sites seem to have the utilities on the opposite side). Sites had a grass area with picnic table, some were muddy. No noise. WiFi coverage was too weak where we were (OutBack section), but we had 4/5 bars on Verizon Cell. We camped at R Campground Inc in a Fifth Wheel.
