Stafford RV Park and Campground, Scotia, California

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

We had 4 of us in the van, pulling a pop up trailer, and after a long haul we were having trouble finding the campgrounds along the avenue of the redwoods. After seeing the signs for this place on the highway we decided to stop by, knowing we were there after hours around midnight. The maps behind the glass on the signs were sun baked and unreadable but the host house had an open sign so we opened the gate and there was a sign saying to pick a spot and pay in the morning, which was great. Tent spots were $18 and RV spots with hookups were $34. We drove around trying to figure out which sites were for RVs, which for tents, and which had hookups but the numbering system was odd and the light was low. We picked what we thought was best and set up the pop up and two tents. An attendant in the morning came by and told one of us that we were not in a correct spot and charged us $50 (where does that cost come from...not itemized on our receipt for sure). The place was empty other than one other RV and the permanent residents since it was a Monday evening/Tuesday morning. They said that we had to leave by 11 AM and would be charged if we stayed past noon. Since it was about 10:45 it was incredibly tough to get a shower in and by 11 they had closed the bathrooms so we couldn't use them. Also, when we were cooking breakfast, two attendant clowns in a Gator style vehicle drove right through our camp with a load of weeds and what seemed to be blackberry branches and circled between our stove and a tent, catching the tent with a branch, which damaged it cosmetically. They just drove on and acted like we shouldn't be there. Unbelievable. Terrible customer service during a non peak time. They only get 3 stars because we were so desperate and this place let us check in after hours. We camped at Stafford RV Park and Campground in a Tent Trailer.

Bluewater Lake State Park, Prewitt, New Mexico

Date of Stay: August, 2015 - $14.00
Overall Rating:      

We only stayed here for one night and did not go to the lake but this seemed like a gem of a place for what we expected. It is off the beaten path and the high elevation keeps it nice and cool at night. The sites are not very level and there is little grass. There is power available for only the extra four bucks. We were shocked that the flush bathrooms were closed at 9p and did not open until 7a. I couldn't find an alternative bathroom so we just had to hold things in until the morning. I am not sure why they do this. Also, the water looks terrible...not sure if it is iron or what but the water is brown and not even useable to make coffee. Also, the local homes and trailers near the entrance look scary with trash all over the place. We were happy that they closed the gates at 9p as it provided isolation and protection from them. Overall the experience was good however. We camped at Bluewater Lake State Park in a Tent.

Foss State Park, Foss, Oklahoma

Date of Stay: August, 2015 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed here for one night, right before Labor Day weekend. The host was very accommodating and allowed us to have 3 tents in one site. Each site had power which was very convenient. The showers were clean as well as the area. There was also a disc golf course available, which came as a nice surprise so try that out. The lake looked nice but we did not go to it. The only negative would be that many sites do not have much shade. We camped at Foss State Park in a Tent.

McDowell Nature Preserve, Charlotte, North Carolina

Date of Stay: August, 2015 - $28.00
Overall Rating:      

We found a site without a reservation in August and stayed here for about a week. The tent sites do not have grass and you are required to set up in a specific gravel area so bring plenty of padding. The areas are level and will allow at least two tents, depending on which site you choose. There are individual, lockable bathroom/showers which is convenient and they are right next to a small laundry which is open only 8a to 4p. Definitely a good and secluded place to camp, with easy access to Charlotte. No Alcohol which is bad but no out of state fees, which is good. All in all a good place to be. We camped at McDowell Nature Preserve in a Tent.

Volunteer Park Family Campground, Heiskell, Tennessee

Date of Stay: August, 2015 - $27.00
Overall Rating:      

We came through here for one night while on the road this summer. There is a nice area for tents apart from the RV spaces. The spots could be a bit more level but the fire pits, benches and available power/water make up for it. The store is stocked with reasonably priced items. This price was for one van, 3 people and 3 tents in one spot. Alcohol permitted and no out of state fees make this a good spot. We camped at Volunteer Park Family Campground in a Tent.

Jubilee College State Park, Brimfield, Illinois

Date of Stay: August, 2015 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed here for a week in August and were pleasantly surprised by the atmosphere. First of all, the price was excellent at $20/night which accommodated 3 tents with one person each, a van, and an RV with another person...awesome value for our money. There aren't many frills but there are large sites, each including a power hookup free of charge. The pit toilets are closer but there is a free shower and flush toilets within walking distance. The hosts are gone a lot but come by and collect the fees later on so just grab a site. The bugs here are fine compared to other campgrounds such as Kickapoo. For a group outing this place would be wonderful. I don't believe there are any alcohol restrictions and even better no out of state upcharges. We camped at Jubilee College State Park in a Tent.

Pinto Lake Park, Watsonville, California

Date of Stay: August, 2011 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

We selected this park as a result of its proximity to the golf course and stayed here a time or two before to practice for the world championships without incident. If you are looking for an RV park where a requirement is dead silence and to stay in your closed RV, this is your place. Otherwise I'd go somewhere else. One female host was very accommodating but the older, short haired white female host rules with an iron fist and ruined our stay. While practicing putting in front of the RV at approximately 8 pm, she came up to us and asked for us to stop. I asked if the quiet time was 8 pm and she said "No, but for this it is" and made a new rule. She seemed proud of the fact that she made the 70 year old gentleman near us stop putting as well. The next day at 9 pm we were asked to shut our RV door because she could hear our voices on the dock. We were not loud and having normal conversation. At the end of the stay, she tried to get extra $ out of us by accusing us of having extra people and vehicles, which we did not. All this plus the lack of showers will have me going elsewhere and reporting this host to the city of Watsonville. She even had the nerve to give me a flyer to recommend the park to other users after grilling me about the additional fees! We camped at Pinto Lake Park in a Motorhome.

Auburn Gold Country RV Park, Auburn, California

Date of Stay: June, 2011 - $27.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a well maintained park and accommodated our needs nicely. It is situated in mid Auburn and close to many amenities. There is even a disc golf basket for those who would like to practice golf. Sites are in various areas of the park for those who prefer shade vs. sun. We camped at Auburn Gold Country RV Park in a Tent.
