Area's Finest Country View Campground, Ogallala, Nebraska

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $31.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed here a week, and very much enjoyed everything about this park! The hosts were personable and very willing to help. Much thought went into them assigning our site, we got a very special site with generous afternoon shade because we were staying the week. Sites were fairly level, fine gravel surface with grass on either side. We were personally led to our site by one of the hosts on his golf cart. This was a popular site for big rigs as the pull throughs were very long and plenty of room between. The only reason I didn't rate this park a 10 is that there was a Fed Ex truck site right next to the park where trucks came and went all night and day, but they weren't extremely loud and I didn't hear them at night, it just ruined the country atmosphere a bit. The park is only a half mile off the interstate so easy off and on, and WalMart is only about 2 miles away! We were surrounded on 2 sides by miles of corn fields! The laundry had fairly new machines and only cost $1 to wash and $1.50 to dry, the dryers ran almost an hour! We camped at Area's Finest Country View Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Ogallala has Nebraska's largest lake which is a reservoir. The dam produces much of Nebraska's electricity and is gorgeous with fine white sand beaches. Boot Hill is an old pioneer cemetery from Ogallala's wilder days. Also the petrified wood museum is not to be missed! We toured "The Mansion on the Hill" built in 1887 and still mostly original. Ogallala claims to be Nebraska's Cowboy Capital.

Fossil Creek RV Park, Russell, Kansas

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $26.00
Overall Rating:      

Arrived and read the sign that said we could choose our own spot, so we did. The office is the owner's home so I went to pay and check to be sure our spot was OK with her. It was so we set up. The only negative is that there are also full timers in the park in single wides which would normally be OK. However, sitting out enjoying the cool weather that evening, we heard one of the residents shouting obscenities at someone! Also, there were barking dogs, again at the single wides. The owner was no where to be seen, and there were no printed rules given to us when we checked in. All in all, though, there are few sites and few campers so we had lots of room between us and others. The sites are actually very close but you can tell that people regularly choose every other site so that no one is too close as the owner let's you choose the site that suits you. There are back in sites and pull through sites so you can choose what you want. There are LOTS of trees and bushes in the park which we enjoyed. Even though you are only about 1/4 mile from the interstate, there is very little noise due to sell the trees and bushes. We enjoyed our stay due to the quiet and the relative privacy of the park and spacing of campers. We camped at Fossil Creek RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

The first night we didn't feel like cooking so went into town to get diesel fuel. We finally found some at the propane place and asked them where to eat. They recommended a bar downtown on Main Street called "840 Ale" The food was excellent and the service was great! Nearest Wal mart is back in Hays, about 25 miles away.

Three Flags RV Park, Black Hawk, South Dakota

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $24.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed here to be close to the many attractions in this area. Found the park in the Passport America book so had never seen it. Park is very close to 90 so lots of highway noise, on top of that a railroad borders the park so you have trains too. Our site though was plenty wide enough and we had full hookups. They also offer cable TV but we didn't use it, have our own dish. Only 30 amp service available on our site but that was OK, we didn't run the AC at all, nice weather! We camped at Three Flags RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

You are close here to Wall Drug and the Badlands as well as Mt Rushmore and Crazy Horse. Also close to Sturgis, Deadwood, and Spearfish Canyon. Devils Tower is a little over an hour and a half away, but worth the drive!

Three Forks Market & RV Park, Three Forks, Montana

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed here only one night on our way through. Park itself was very clean and neat. Only 8 sites that I saw and 3 of them were occupied by long term staters. No bathrooms for the park, no showers or laundry, but quiet and beautiful grass! The sites are all locked (water and electric and entrance to site) and must be unlocked to let you in. Definitely you should have reservations like we did. We camped at Three Forks Market & RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Peter D's RV Park, Sheridan, Wyoming

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $36.00
Overall Rating:      

Loved the town of Sheridan but didn't enjoy the park. Very, very close together! Uncomfortably so.... The sites are so narrow that slide outs nearly touch and you can not put your awnings all the way out. The owner of the park is a micromanager at best and a tyrant at worst! He cruises the park many times a day in his truck looking for what he determines are infractions of his rules, printed or not! Not a pleasant atmosphere and then having your neighbor so close made things worse. Bathrooms and laundry very clean at all times. We did our laundry in town at "Wash Your Woolies" as I read in a review that the park owner had turned the dryers way down so you have to keep the quarters coming! I definitely could believe that! On parking....our site was just long enough for our RV but would not accommodate our truck also so we had to park by the bathrooms. We camped at Peter D's RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Riverview RV Park, Cut Bank, Montana

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $31.00
Overall Rating:      

The only reason I didn't rate this park 5 stars is there was no septic available at each site. New owner very nice and anxious to help, he put on a BBQ dinner for everyone in the park our first night. NO longer any cable TV. Very quiet and beautiful views! Cool during the days and about 50 at night. Refreshing! Dump station in park and for long staters, owners will pump your septic so you don't have to move. We camped at Riverview RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Happy Jack Lodge and RV Park, Happy Jack, Arizona

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $41.00
Overall Rating:      

We made reservations to stay here with full hookups. Very rude staff and owners. They cater only to their long term renters and don't care about visitors. Though all sites in the park had sewer hookups, they put us in a site that did not, even though they promised us full hookups. The park management claimed sewer was available though it was 30 feet away and Y-ed into the next (occupied) site's sewer. We didn't have 30 feet of hose and no help offered. I asked for discount because of this and was told "this park doesn't give discounts for any reason!"

Campers running around all hours on noisy 4 wheelers, which seemed to be the reason for this park's existence. Site was on busy corner so we got lots of noise from the loud 4 wheelers. Operators did not try to be quiet and roared their engines at all hours. Site so unlevel our RV could not level itself even after we put blocks under one side.

No cell phone device, way out in the middle of nowhere. In mountains, so cool. Long drive to any attractions. Guess that's why all the site renters (Long term) had 4 wheelers. They even had tents set up on their sites to house all their "toys"

If I could rate 0 stars, I would! We camped at Happy Jack Lodge and RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tres Rios River Ranch, Glen Rose, Texas

Date of Stay: October, 2016 - $15.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed 10 days here. Full hookups but no cable TV. WiFi free but we didn't use it this stay. Weekdays and nights very quiet however the weekend we were there there were many families with children who were noisy and didn't observe the quiet time. I was awakened at 7:15 on Saturday with kids screaming and yelling and dogs barking. No phone number to call for security, you have to walk way up to the office and push a button to get anyone. However, after I complained to management Saturday, Sunday morning was quieter but I was very happy to see the loud families leave that day! They have a church service Sunday mornings in the park courtesy of the local Cowboy Church. I always attend Sunday Services at 10 am at that church.

This park has many grass stickers in it this time of year, they stick to EVERYTHING and our dog gets them in her paws if we don't carry her (50+ lbs!) over the patches of burrs while walking her.

The rivers surrounding the park are beautiful and the park tried to keep the habitat as natural as possible. As I said, weekdays and nights are very quiet as a rule and we appreciate that. They have a restaurant in the historical lodge that is open on weekends only. There are separate buildings for organized activities for children and adults and children are supervised at all times. Also, we appreciate that the park is gated and does not allow motorcycles in except to go directly to and from their sites. We camped at Tres Rios River Ranch in a Fifth Wheel.

If you are there when "The Promise" is playing in town, be sure to see it. For breakfast and lunch try the Koffee Kup cafe, for lunch try "The Green Pickle" but get there early as parking and seating are limited.

North Fork Resort, Front Royal, Virginia

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $10.00
Overall Rating:      

We booked this park through Coast to Coast, had never been here before, and didn't know what to expect. I thought it was funny that we didn't have to check-in at an office, the gate guard handled everything, and sent us to our site. To our surprise, our site was one of the premier sites in the park, backed up to the river, at the end of the row, so out our door was a large grassy area and trees with a pretty wooden fence. Gorgeous! That said, the site was gravel and narrow, but hubby backed right into place. Our site was nearly level so no problems with the auto leveler. The trailer to our left was fairly close, but have been in parks where they are closer, so not too bad. We camped at North Fork Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Cooperstown Deer Run Campground, Cooperstown, New York

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $23.00
Overall Rating:      

The developed part of the park is totally taken up by "full-timers". The overnight guests are relegated to the fields, where there are no roads, we just drove out on the grass. The owner told me they only had one 50 amp site. The bathrooms were clean from what I could tell, but I wouldn't shower in them, they were rudimentary at best. Driving up to the "office" you notice all the clutter and junk that they have lying around the front building. That clutter pretty much extends throughout the park. The WiFi only works in the main office, and since we were parked WAY in the back field, we had to drive to the office for use of the internet. I had no phone service thus couldn't use my AT&T internet, either. I have to say though, that the owners would do ANYTHING they could for you....though the woman was a heavy smoker. It was OK to stay for a couple of nights at the Passport America price, but I would have rated it "poor" for the advertised (no discount) fee. We camped at Cooperstown Deer Run Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

I would recommend visiting the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown. However, park in the lot on the edge of town and take the trolley into town, parking in town is expensive and limited. Also, visit the Farmer's Museum. We didn't get to go because we weren't there long enough. I recommend lunch at the Doubleday cafe and bar in town. The food was EXCELLENT!
