Elk Meadow Lodge & RV Resort, Estes Park, Colorado

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $70.00
Overall Rating:      

Having been here in 2005 we knew what to expect as far as the dirt roads and dust. We should have heeded the 6.3 reviews. Arriving on a Thursday night we had reservations in G15 and was told it was a level site. After one hour of trying to level the coach, we gave up and took an empty site for the night. It had a cracked 30 amp plug in with a breaker in the box for the site next door! In the morning we moved back with the delivery of numerous 2x8's. Another 45 minutes and were level. Site is at least 10" -12" out of level. Electrical is shared with another site, but the box is only labeled for G14 (had me looking for my G15 box for a few minutes till it occurred to check out G14's box....a few extra letters on the box would fix that....). There is a note inside the electrical box that says "Do not turn off the breakers". The sewer connection had been broken at some point and taped back together, fell apart in my hands when I attempted to to connect. Roads have gullies from a previous storm and NOTHING has been done....at least try to grade it. It is obvious that the owner is not maintaining this park and likely just waiting for the right buyer. But hey, if it still fills up, albeit later than others, what is his motivation? The good? The view. We camped at Elk Meadow Lodge & RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Jessie Lea RV Park, Big Stone Gap, Virginia

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

We were traveling over Labor Day needing a place to stay for 2 nights on our way to NC. Called the campground and talked to the owner. He had one site left, asked if he needed a credit card he said "Not at all. When can I expect you?" Great service!

Upon arrival we sat at the pavilion and he and other RV'ers gave us some great suggestions for side trips. We camped at Jessie Lea RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

We visited Lynch KY which was an old company owned coal mining town established in the early 20's. Lynch has a coal mine tour, Portal 31, open Tuesday through Saturday. We also enjoyed the vistas at

Kingdom Come State Park. If you get hungry, eat at Charlotte's Hoagie Shop in Cumberland.

Obey River Campground, Monroe, Tennessee

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

Obey is located on Dale Hollow Lake only minutes south of Byrdstown TN on Tennessee Highway 111. All interior roads are paved, some sites are paved (19), all have picnic table and fire pit. 86 sites have water and electric. There is a dump station but some maneuvering is required.

We stayed in site 73 which was a pull in. It is directly on the lake with a great view next to the boat ramp . I would bet the ramp is busy during the summer. The grass needed mowing and our fire pit wasn't clean. Not the usual COE maintenance we have experienced. We camped at Obey River Campground in a Motorhome.

S & H Campground, Greenfield, Indiana

Date of Stay: July, 2011 - $38.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed here over the 4th of July weekend. No matter, this park has very narrow sites, and parts of the park have fulltimers, and they really make the park look run down. If I were the owner all the fulltimers would be in one location so the short term customers wouldn't see some of the eyesores. On the plus side, the electric hookup we had, provided very stable voltage during 90 degree weather. Seems to be a lot of activities for children. We would not stay here again, just not our kind of park. We camped at S & H Campground in a Motorhome.

Santa Cruz Harbor, Santa Cruz, California

Date of Stay: October, 2009 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed here based on the previous two reviews. I would recommend that nothing be left outside that can be carried off by opportunistic thieves. While we stayed here we had thieves go through the campground at 3 AM. They were discovered, and dropped all of their misbegotten goods. Fortunately there was no vandalism. The police are aware of the problem. We will still stay here again. We camped at Santa Cruz Harbor in a Motorhome.

Bakersfield RV Resort, Bakersfield, California

Date of Stay: March, 2008 - $31.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a nice campground. I saw this one being built and thought, "Why build a campground here? It will never work". Was I wrong. We stopped here on the way down to San Diego and again on our way back. It is not too far off of Highway 99 and easy to get to. The check in staff are fantastic, as are all the help we encountered. Sites are up to 70' long so you can keep the toad hooked up. WiFi is strong and easy to access. There are other campgrounds in the area, but for the slightly ($4) higher price, this is the one! It would be a great facility for a rally. We camped at Bakersfield RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Santa Fe Park RV Resort, San Diego, California

Date of Stay: March, 2008 - $28.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a small park compared to others in the area. It is located between the I-5 freeway and railroad tracks. We kept our windows closed all the time. The park allows dogs, but requires that they use a dog run that has very uneven ground. This wasn't a problem for us, but was for our aging dog, and could be problematic for some seniors. Sites are compact and rv parking is on blacktop, with gravel around the site. We camped at Santa Fe Park RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Campland On The Bay, San Diego, California

Date of Stay: March, 2008 - $48.00
Overall Rating:      

Location, location, location. Great for sites in the San Diego area. We stayed here over Easter vacation. This campground is crowded and noisy. Noise from the all the children playing, is good noise. The campground has a lot of activities for school age children. The bad noise comes from the adults and their toys: golf carts, trucks, music, etc. We stayed in the dry camp site, I-39, that looks out onto the marina. We had a good view of the bay. Other areas of the park are mostly too crowded (for us) with little room between campsites. Some sites we saw had as little as 5 feet of space. We camped at Campland On The Bay in a Motorhome.

Hearst San Simeon State Park, Cambria, California

Date of Stay: November, 2007 - $11.00
Overall Rating:      

We originally had a site in the lower campground. If you want to use the restrooms and showers, this is where you will want to stay. This area has hedges between the campsites and trees for shade. The roads are all paved, as are sites. It also rests on a low point, so the sunset isn't visible from this campground. To us it felt like we were in a hole. Fees here are $20 per night. We chose to move up to Washburn Point, the primitive area. Fees here are $11 per night. Restrooms up here are pit toilets. We like sites 242-238. The ocean is visible from some of these sites. There are great trails to access from Washburn Point. It can be dusty in the summer as the roads in the primitive area are all gravel. Springtime views from Washburn Point would be absolutely magnificent. We camped at Hearst San Simeon State Park in a Motorhome.

Mountain Valley RV Park, Tehachapi, California

Date of Stay: October, 2007 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed here not as a stop over, but to try out the gliding opportunities at the airport. For as little as $85 you can get a 15-20 minute ride in a training glider. We chose the 30 minute flight in a high performance glider. We had a great time and would highly recommend you try them out. MVRP is a bit off of Hyw 58, but the nights we were there, they had quite a few stop over RV'ers. It is pretty quiet and the park has great mountain views from the back sites. We stayed in site 27. We camped at Mountain Valley RV Park in a Motorhome.

Dr. Edmund A. Babler Memorial State Park, Wildwood, Missouri

Date of Stay: May, 2007 - $18.00
Overall Rating:      

This park is located in the town of Wildwood. St. Louis Zoo (free admission) is 25 miles away. The arch is 30 miles away. This is a fantastic park with a lot of room between RV sites. We saw deer, racoon, turkey and numerous birds, including our first Pileated Woodpecker. There are water hydrants nearby some sites, but you might need a y connector and 50' of hose. We camped at Dr. Edmund A. Babler Memorial State Park in a Motorhome.

Sequoia RV Ranch, Three Rivers, California

Date of Stay: April, 2007 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

This park was previously called Trailer Isle, as in the review above. It now has no resemblance to the former parks owner. The new owner bought this park almost one year ago, and moved people out! He has done "tons" of work. The campground has paved roads, shaded gravel campsites, and some concrete patios. 30 and 50 amp is available. There are 22 sites with full hook ups, 8 of which are right on the river. 10 more sites are available with water and electric only. We had looked at many RV parks in the area one year ago, and found only one that we would have felt comfortable in staying. Unfortunately that RV park only allowed small dogs. Sequoia RV Ranch is another choice now for visitors to Sequoia National Park, or just wanting to get away. The owner aptly calls it a "Ranch" not a resort. The park has a pool, but it is in a quiet spot in the river, with it's own beach. The owners make you feel right at home, stopping by to see if everything is OK, a nice touch. The sites along the river have a wonderful view. In the spring, the sound of the river can be heard from most of the park . There is a path along the river from which fishing is allowed, except around the swimming hole. Sequoia National Park's entrance station is a short 10 minute drive, and the big Sequoia trees are less than one hour away, 28 miles. This is now a great park. We camped at Sequoia RV Ranch in a Motorhome.

Camp Edison, Shaver Lake, California

Date of Stay: March, 2007 - $28.00
Overall Rating:      

We have stayed here once in the early spring. At that time of year the park is not crowded, and a nice spot to relax. For us, summertime would be like staying in a small city. Very few sites have a view of the lake and the ones that do come at a premium price. If you are a boating fan this is a good place to stay. If you want to relax or fish, head to Huntington or Wishon. We camped at Camp Edison in a Motorhome.

Club Royal Oak RV Resort, Kingsburg, California

Date of Stay: December, 2006 - $23.00
Overall Rating:      

This park was purchased by its new owner in 2005. We have stayed here in the spring and fall avoiding the summertime when all the boats and personal craft are running up and down the river. The staff is great, and have always gone out of their way to accommodate us. We usually dry camp on the river and avoid the FHU's, our choice to have an unobstructed view of the river. There is a gun club across the river and it can sometimes be heard. If you are traveling Hyw 99 Club Royal Oak is just 3-4 miles to the east of the freeway. We camped at Club Royal Oak RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Wishon Village RV Resort, Shaver Lake, California

Date of Stay: September, 2006 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed in this park every weekend of the summer. We like sites 1-24. Sites 25-97 are a bit more crowded, and the smoke from the night fires tends to linger. I believe sites 38-48 are 50 amp. Some sites have steep approaches and tight corners. The park rents small fishing boats and a couple of pontoon boats. Wishon Reservoir is a 15 mph lake so it is very quiet. The park is at 6700 feet and the night sky is magnificent. There are many hiking trails and 4 WD off road trails to explore. Plan on it taking 30-40 minutes to cover the 15 miles after turning onto McKinley Grove Road. It is a winding mountain road with 20-30 mph curves. We plan for two hours from Fresno by car, and about two and one half hours by RV. We camped at Wishon Village RV Resort in a Motorhome.
