Oakdale KOA, Oakdale, Wisconsin

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $55.00
Overall Rating:

This park is located right on the freeway and even the AC did not drown out the noise. The pool area is nice along with the bouncy pad they had in the back. All in all what you would expect from a KOA. I would not be back just due to the close proximity to the freeway. Also our site was a bit of a pain to back into (mainly because of parked vehicles around it) and the sewer connections were in the back so we could not use them. The site was not long enough to fit the truck so we had to unhook and hook in the road. We camped at Oakdale KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Curt Gowdy State Park, Cheyenne, Wyoming

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

This park is large. Take note of where you site is and how you enter and leave the park. We ended up on 8 miles of washboard gravel roads which was not fun. If you get a spot by the entrance way better. Its a cool park located in a cool area but if returning I would be sure to be as close to the entrance as possible. Its also a bit of a trek to the entrance of the park . We camped at Curt Gowdy State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Hot Springs / Black Hills KOA, Hot Springs, South Dakota

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $55.00
Overall Rating:

On the KOA scale this one is a bit nicer than most. Close to the highway which they all are but they had a large pool that looked to be somewhat newer. There are lots of trees which is nice for a KOA. I would be back if passing through the area. We camped at Hot Springs / Black Hills KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Camp America Campground, Salem, South Dakota

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

The Good: Nice people, well kept campground just far enough that the freeway noise is not bad but the road out front is busy. The Bad: The pool was pretty dirty. Not sure what was up with it but I did not want to swim in it. The kids went and they survived so that's good. The smell, not sure if its the farm fields all around or the waste water pond at the back of the property but I smelled sewer quite a bit. Fix those two things and the place is a 8. We camped at Camp America Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Squaw Creek Campground (Linn County Park), Marion, Iowa

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

cant go wrong here for a stopover. Some sites had full hookups and all had concrete pads I think. No negatives on this park other then not sure what there is to do around the park. It was a Thursday night and the place was almost filled up. I would stop again for sure if in the area. We camped at Squaw Creek Campground (Linn County Park) in a Travel Trailer.

Jackson Lake State Park, Orchard, Colorado

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

There was not much to pick from in the area so we ended up here. The roads are all gravel and some ruts you need to look out for. This is a boaters campground so they were in full swing over the weekend. The place looked pretty sketchy and had a party atmosphere going on but in the end was not as bad as I thought it was going to be. I probably would not return as its ways of the main highway and the roads getting there were not the best. They did have a nice dump station that was easy to access. We camped at Jackson Lake State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Double Nickel Campground, Waco, Nebraska

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

Place is a little old. Had a pool which is all we were looking for. The pull through sites face one another which limits the privacy when sitting outside. Since it was 100 degrees out that was not an issue. We might be back if traveling through the are and its was convenient. Its also close to the freeway but with the AC running could not hear it. We camped at Double Nickel Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Moraine Campground (NPS Campground), Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

Great place to base camp out of to explore the area. First time camping in a national park and they are strict about the rules. Saw several neighbors coolers hauled away for not putting them in bear boxes. Saw tons of wildlife just sitting in the site relaxing. My only complaint about this park is the way the sites are laid out. Some are fairly close together and others are placed behind you which minimizes privacy. We were by the pits so the constant slamming door was pretty annoying. Would go back for sure but would look for another site we had B211. We camped at Moraine Campground (NPS Campground) in a Travel Trailer.

Difficult Campground, Aspen, Colorado

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

The hosts here are great and run a nice clean and organized campground. There is a place to fill water but no dump station. It is in a great location to explore the Aspen area and the surrounding national forest. I would be back again for sure if in the area. We camped at Difficult Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Mirror Lake State Park, Baraboo, Wisconsin

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $29.00
Overall Rating:

Nice park close to the Dells but far enough that you feel like you are out in nature. Took some work to get level as some of the sites we saw were not the most level. This park would be a 10 if it was not for the freeway noise. It is mostly constant and worst is some parts of the park. Minus that it's probably one of the best places to camp in the Dells. There are some old growth white pines that are huge and also a lake that if you get the chance you need to paddle. The hiking is also good as there are several bluffs located throughout the park. This is a yearly visit for us as its a nice park to explore and close to the Dells for all it's activities. We camped at Mirror Lake State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Lake of the Woods Campground, Wautoma, Wisconsin

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $55.00
Overall Rating:

This is an old park with a lot of seasonal campers. It's a little hard to navigate but really should not be a problem. The sites are not very level or well marked on where you should park. Some of the pedestals were shared with other sites and you could move the fire rings anywhere you want. Overall its pretty run down. The plus side is it's located in a stand of beautiful pines, if camping with a group you can park your rigs any which way you want. All of the seasonal folks we encountered were nice and our group had a good time. If passing thru for the night I would look elsewhere but if you have a group that is looking for a place to go might be worth checking out. We camped at Lake of the Woods Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Milton KOA, Milton, Wisconsin

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $65.00
Overall Rating:

This review is based on the fact they charge $65 per night for a campsite and when paying that much you expect premium services. We were unable to back into our site due to the steep hill without grounding out. We were able to cut across the grass and finally make it in. The sewer connections are located in the very back and we were not able to reach them with our dump valves located on the center of our rig. The sites in the new section are spacious for a KOA and nicer then the rest in the park. Pool is way undersized and was over capacity. No cable at that sites (for what they charge). The staff was not the most friendliest, a bit rude and disorganized. Its gravel through out and was a bit dusty some of the roads could use a little grading. We were there on a Halloween weekend which they have 5 of and it was a bit rowdy. Loud music, drunk golf cart drivers, golf cart parades with horns honking. It was a big party and I was expecting it but most of the KOA's I have been to seem not to cater to this type of crowd. They have lots of seasonal sites, the grounds are well kept and there is some open space but at $65 a night I might look some place else and do not think I would return. If passing thru on a weekday and the rate does not bother you it would be a good stopover. We camped at Milton KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Potawatomi State Park, Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

Been to Door County a bunch but always went to Fish Creek so we thought we would try something different this time. The campground is a bit tight to navigate around in. we tow a 35 foot TT and arrived at night and it was slow going, almost to the point that I thought my wife should walk behind to make sure I was clear. Trees line the road in the most troublesome spots and some show previous scars of some not so fortunate campers. In the end we made it and as long as you go slow you should also. We had no problem backing in but some others I watched seem to struggle a bit. The site was large and we had plenty of room. There was not much understory between the sites so it was somewhat open but other sites offered more. We could easily walk to the lake and was close to the city of Sturgeon Bay. I might look elsewhere for camping when visiting again only because of the narrowness of the roads but would not rule it out. We camped at Potawatomi State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Wilderness Campground, Montello, Wisconsin

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $50.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed in the newer part with the pull through sites which were pretty nice. Sites were wide open with a little more space then you usually get. Concrete picnic pad and fairly level gravel driveway. They also had a swim pond with a few inflatables which was nice. There was no shower house or flush bathrooms in that section which would not be a problem but we had a popup on the group. The rest of the park looked like a refugee camp. Tents and campers parked every which way with no resemblance of order. The drive in and out of the campground was tight and not ideal for big rigs. Was not super difficult but there was tight turns and trees you had to be on the lookout and could be designed much better. There is a pool and another swim pond and all the other amenities you would expect at a family fun resort along with a lot of people. Not sure if I would come back here and if I was to I would be sure to stay in the newer location. If camping with a group and you want to corral your campers up it might also be a good choice. We camped at Wilderness Campground in a Travel Trailer.

San Luis State Park, Mosca, Colorado

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $1.00
Overall Rating:

I was all set to pay my $70 first night and it ended up being free and I think that might be the case moving forward. The park looks like a scene out of a post apocalyptic movie (not in a bad way). I think there is a host who resides in a fenced in area but we never talked to her. Another camper did and said it's free and just pick a spot, so we did. I really enjoyed the park as it was about 5% full and very quiet. It has great views of the sand dunes and surrounding mountains. Watching the storms off in the distance was also cool. Sites are large and a lot of pull thru's to pick from. Cant beat free camping with electric and would definitely stay again if in the area. One thing to note is there is no water of any kind to be had. Stop at the National Park for dumping and water needs.

Admin note:park website advises "Anyone ages 18-64 must purchase an annual access permit to enter the property. Anyone who has a valid Colorado annual hunting or fishing license does NOT need to have an access permit. Permits are $36, valid April 1-March 31, and available anywhere you can purchase CPW hunting and fishing licenses." We camped at San Luis State Park in a Travel Trailer.
