Raccoon Valley RV Park - Escapees Rainbow Park, Heiskell, Tennessee

Date of Stay: July, 2015 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

This park is run by the Escapees Organization and it is a prize. Plain, simple and most of all, Clean and Orderly. Their bathrooms are just like at home. Some erosion on the gravel roads due to heavy rains keep me from ranking this as a #10. We camped at Raccoon Valley RV Park - Escapees Rainbow Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tugaloo State Park, Lavonia, Georgia

Date of Stay: September, 2014 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

Only the condition of the roads keep this from being a "10" park. Excellent staffing. Generous sites have newly laid crushed stone base. Bathrooms very clean, well maintained. Lots of shades from lots of trees. A park employee told us that they have plans budgeted to repair the roads which have been damaged by the tree roots. Plenty of parking available at the recreational sites. We camped at Tugaloo State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Horseshoe Bend COE, Rogers, Arkansas

Date of Stay: June, 2014 - $10.00
Overall Rating:      

Interior roads are narrow and there are several turns where vehicles have driven off the road and into the mud. Excellent vistas. Great lake. Only two shower buildings, each with 2 showers. Shower stall small, perhaps 3 by 5 ft, no shelving, no place to put your soap. Good value at $10 per night. Very scenic. most people appear to be local with collection of boats, trailers, etc. Uncut grass sites were adequate in size and equipment. We camped at Horseshoe Bend COE in a Travel Trailer.

Ozark RV Park, Mountain View, Arkansas

Date of Stay: June, 2014 - $24.00
Overall Rating:      

This park is built on the side of a hill, with terraced parking lanes. The site offered us was too short to accommodate our 25 ft travel trailer and pickup truck; we had to park the truck in the street on the terrace below ours. One washroom for men with 3 basins, 2 urinals, 2 stalls, 2 showers. Insufficient lighting prevented one from making any qualified judgment about relative cleanliness. Marginal ventilation. Sites had received recent treatment of crushed stone and seemed to be draining well. Little privacy and not much room between sites. Main attraction of this park is walking entrance to the State Park next door. Drive through sites are reserved for larger Class A rigs. We camped at Ozark RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Yellowstone Lake State Park, Blanchardville, Wisconsin

Date of Stay: June, 2014 - $19.00
Overall Rating:      

Excellent area, very close to nature, but accessible by driving some distance on narrow two lane roads. The sites appear to have been ignored for some years. Most need a treatment of crushed stone or gravel. Many sites have poor drainage. Interior roads are narrow asphalt and are deteriorating, illustrating lack of ongoing maintenance. New investment in first class restrooms and separate commodious shower rooms. Very clean and neat. Grass had not been cut or trimmed for some time and this may have contributed to our site being fairly 'buggy'. We camped at Yellowstone Lake State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Aiken State Natural Area, Windsor, South Carolina

Date of Stay: September, 2013 - $12.00
Overall Rating:      

A very large state park and it has a small 25 site camping park nestled in the Pine Woods with the ground mostly covered with fallen pine needles. It was built in the 1930's by the CCC. The roads and the campsites reflect the custom of those times. They are small, even tiny and narrow. The roads are narrow enough as to make it awkward, even difficult for one to easily back a RV into a space. Pine trees rule! Way too many of them, which helps to block a camper from extending both sliders and awnings. The park has rental canoes which is a real plus. The park is somewhat off the beaten path accessible via paved country roads in a rather desolate part of the state. A park ranger told us that the busiest seasons here are either Spring or Fall. We were here in September and found the bugs great enough in number that we did not bother having a fire. Bathrooms are functional, clean, and well ventilated. TV reception was very good. Neither one of our cellular phones were able to make a connection. We'd recommend visiting this camp if you are an agile driver, had a smaller rig, and loved to canoe or fish. We camped at Aiken State Natural Area in a Travel Trailer.

Cove Lake State Park, Caryville, Tennessee

Date of Stay: April, 2013 - $21.00
Overall Rating:      

Quiet, neat, well-managed park that we enjoyed, finding only one complaint and that had to do with the layout of the camp sites. Most of them are designed for the RV to be backed into the site from the Passenger side of the vehicle. In other words, the driver would have to look out the rear view mirror on the Passenger side of the vehicle. I find it difficult enough to back up a short fifth wheel without confounding me and the operation by backing up 'blind'. Yes, I see others who back up their trailers with little or no difficulty and for them, this park would offer no serious challenge. Everything else about the park is on the Plus Side. We camped at Cove Lake State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Fort Boonesborough State Park, Richmond, Kentucky

Date of Stay: April, 2013 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

Main advantage was close proximity to Interstate Highway. This is an old park and there are some indications of both it's age and the degree of maintenance. For example, just about all of the shower heads and controls need to be replaced or repaired. Just plain worn out. A lot of water is being wasted. Washrooms nicely heated, kept clean. The park is quiet at night, but when the trucks are running back and forth on their way to and from the next-door quarry operations, you can't help but notice. There's a 'herd' of feral cats here and indications that someone is throwing out food to them on a regular basis. We were using only lights in our newer 19 ft trailer when the circuit breaker tripped. Before that, the lights flickered. We never had this problem before and we are inclined to suspect the camp's electrical wiring. Grass was well maintained and in good condition. Extra charge for Wi-Fi. We camped at Fort Boonesborough State Park in a Fifth Wheel.
