Pecan Grove RV Park, Austin, Texas

Date of Stay: March, 2017 - $100.00
Overall Rating:      

The price reflects the daily rate during SXSW (South By Southwest). Since hotel rooms were going for $400 a day, $100 a day seemed a better deal. We stayed for the entire SXSW festival -- 10 days. If you're planning on RVing to SXSW, Pecan Grove is the ONLY place to stay. While there are other RV parks, none offer the access to downtown Austin where SXSW takes place. You can walk to most of the events from Pecan Grove. Keep in mind that there are only a handful of sites available for daily rental in Pecan Grove. The other sites are occupied by monthlies. Also, while most sites off full hookups, there are only 6 sites that have 50A. Verizon 4G was 3 bars. If you get to the park after the trees have leaves (after March), forget about using your RV's sat dish. This is a funky park. Several of the monthlies appear to be well off as we saw a couple of Corvettes and an nice Audi. There's a Thom's Market down the block and plenty of places to eat nearby. We camped at Pecan Grove RV Park in a Motorhome.

Moon River RV Resort, Mohave Valley, Arizona

Date of Stay: March, 2014 - $15.00
Overall Rating:      

The rate reflects a monthly fee. The woman in the office suggested a monthly rate (even though we planned to stay 3 weeks) because the weekly rate would have been much more. This was a great service. However, it went south from there. We ended up switching sites 4 times -- we couldn't get good sat service in the 1st site, the 2nd site wasn't level, and the other two sites had bad electric pedestals: my Surge Guard 44270 indicated an Open Ground. Just to confirm this, I tried connecting our RV directly to the pedestal, but received the same error. When I informed the woman in the office, she said that there was nothing wrong with the park's electrical service because it had been checked by local electricians. I asked if we could just stay the night because it was about 4 pm now, but she said no. At this point I was so angry that my wife had to go in and get our money back. We camped at Moon River RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Casa Grande RV Resort , Casa Grande, Arizona

Date of Stay: October, 2013 - $16.00
Overall Rating:      

The owners seem to be investing heavily in renovations and the price is right at this campground. That said, they could also spend some more on landscaping as the campground is either gravel or asphalt. Plus, there is not really a dog park here as it's a walkway around a stinky water retention pond. However, there is a very good off leash county dog park less than a mile away. Campground Wi-Fi was spotty, but 4G when available and good Verizon 4G LTE is also available. We camped at Casa Grande RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Catalina State Park, Tucson, Arizona

Date of Stay: October, 2013 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

A beautiful desert campground. We camped in the B Loop and had water plus 50 amp electrical service. The campsites are well spaced, but for the most part there is little shade to be had. There are a number of walking trails, and the park is located very close to city services (grocery stores, restaurants, etc). Though the water pressure in the showers was low, the building itself was very clean, bright, and covered with ceramic tile. Verizon 4G LTE service was good. We camped at Catalina State Park in a Motorhome.

Fool Hollow Lake Recreation Area, Show Low, Arizona

Date of Stay: October, 2013 - $31.00
Overall Rating:      

Very scenic park. Our site in the Cinnamon Teal Loop overlooked the lakes and steep bluffs. We originally were going to stay in Redhead loop site #5, but site was not level enough for our CLass A. There is no park Wi-Fi, but Verizon 4G LTE was very strong. Using the shower in the combo bathroom/shower stalls tended to get the entire floor wet, but facilities were clean. We left a day early because fall nights got very cold (20s) as the park is at 6300 feet. The nearby Safeway store in Show Low is a great grocery store with a surprising wine selection. We camped at Fool Hollow Lake Recreation Area in a Motorhome.

American RV Resort, Albuquerque, New Mexico

Date of Stay: October, 2013 - $58.00
Overall Rating:      

The rate was based on 11 days during the Balloon Fest. A great park. I think the staff makes this campground special as they tried to answer every question and assist us in any way. The sites are paved and level. We were in site #141 on the end of a row so there was extra space for our toad. There is a small dog park and the camp WiFi was 3G. This campground is in a great location as it's not too far out of town and located right on Central Avenue which you can take for a great slow tour of Albuquerque. Also, for Balloon Fest the park is very near one of the park and ride areas. We camped at American RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Rancheros de Santa Fe Campground, Santa Fe, New Mexico

Date of Stay: September, 2013 - $41.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a funky campground south of Santa Fe. It's convenient because it's close to the city, and the staff is helpful and friendly. However, $41/night is too expensive for what it offers. The campground roads are narrow and turns can be challenging. There is a dog area for small dogs, but there is also a fairly long trail that can be used for a dog walk (or a regular walk). The laundry is good, but one of the washers and one of the dryers I tried using didn't operate. We couldn't connect to the campground Wi-Fi, but Verizon 4G service was very good. We camped at Rancheros de Santa Fe Campground in a Motorhome.

Trinidad Lake State Park, Trinidad, Colorado

Date of Stay: September, 2013 - $37.00
Overall Rating:      

The fee reflects $29/night (full hookups) + $8/day park pass. There are only 4 full hookup sites 1, 3, 6, and 63. However, the site we reserved (#3) was not level enough for our Class A. We had to try out 2 more sites before we found one level enough. Otherwise, the park was spectacular. Fisherman's peak in one direction and the Rockies in another. The bathroom, shower, and laundry building was new and very clean. Verizon 4G LTE service was very good. We camped at Trinidad Lake State Park in a Motorhome.

Mountaindale Cabins & RV Resort, Colorado Springs, Colorado

Date of Stay: September, 2013 - $38.00
Overall Rating:      

The $38/night was a weekly rate. While the campground management appeared to be busy adding additional camping sites, there are things they could have done better. For example, 2 of the 4 dryers were broken, there were large washouts from previous rains, the campground office hours during this time of year were completely random, WiFi coverage was spotty at best, and they watered the plants early every morning with a noisy tractor. We camped at Mountaindale Cabins & RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Cheyenne Mountain State Park, Colorado Springs, Colorado

Date of Stay: September, 2013 - $45.00
Overall Rating:      

Wow! One of the best campgrounds (state, federal, and private) I've been to. This is a 50A full hookup park with Cheyenne Mountain above you and Colorado Springs below. Stellar views. There are plenty of hiking trails and access to modern conveniences in nearby Colorado Springs. However, once in a while the quiet would be broken by artillery practice at nearby Fort Carson. The nightly rate of $45 =$29/night + Colorado day pass. So if you're planning on camping in a lot of state parks in pays to buy a annual pass. We had good Verizon 4G LTE service. We camped at Cheyenne Mountain State Park in a Motorhome.

Prairie Dog State Park, Norton, Kansas

Date of Stay: September, 2013 - $31.00
Overall Rating:      

After just coming from Lovewell State Park for $32 a night with full hookups, Prairie Dog State Park was a let down. Nearby Norton was very sparse in terms of services. However, Verizon 4G was very good. We camped at Prairie Dog State Park in a Motorhome.

Lovewell Lake, Webber, Kansas

Date of Stay: September, 2013 - $32.00
Overall Rating:      

What a find! Though the lake was 10 feet below level, it was beautiful. Great Blue Herons and Pelicans were all over the lake. The sites to get are in Willow South Utility Campground. These are pull through with full hookups and 50A electric. We camped in site #3, but sites 4, 5, and 6 have superb lake views. Verizon phone and data were marginal, but we could get 4G LTE in the morning and night. We camped at Lovewell Lake in a Motorhome.

Stallbaumer RV Park and Campground, Seneca, Kansas

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

Right off Hwy 36 at the west end of Seneca. When we camped here, it was an "absentee landlord" kind of park -- that is, no one was here to sign us in or monitor the park. We put money in an envelope and signed ourselves in. No big deal until someone pulled into the campground and slept in his car all night. Though there seemed to be on on-site caretaker, he didn't do anything. On a positive note, they had the best laundry we've seen. We camped at Stallbaumer RV Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

Geneseo Campground, Geneseo, Illinois

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

A small campground surrounded by a cornfield and a canal. We camped here for a week before and during the Labor Day weekend. There are several seasonal campers, but mostly weekenders. Good laundry and bathrooms. The campground offers Tengo WiFi, but we were unable to connect. However, the Verizon 4G data signal was strong so we could use our own hotspot. Had a concern with the water supply at first: our water was noticeably cloudy and turned our water filter orange. I notified the campground and they flushed their water filters. We camped at Geneseo Campground in a Motorhome.

Silver Creek Luxury RV Resort, Mears, Michigan

Date of Stay: August, 2013 - $42.00
Overall Rating:      

If this is your destination stop for racing around the Silver Creek sand dunes (which we did and it was great), then this is your kind of campground. If not, avoid it as some of the dune buggy folks can be jerks. At any rate, avoid the weekends when people pour into the campground. The camp staff was very responsive and professional. Campground WI-Fi was barely 3G at times, but our Verizon 4G modem was very good. Verizon phone coverage was also ok. We camped at Silver Creek Luxury RV Resort in a Motorhome.
