Des Moines West KOA, Adel, Iowa

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

If I have to pay $50 one night at an RV park - it should be a park like this one. It is so nice - well spaced sites, newly remodeled restrooms (Tile walls and granite counter tops) and showers - very nice. We didn't use the laundry but I imagine it is just as nice. Wifi was quite good as was the cable with about 15 channels. Verizon 4 G was good too. Sites are level with grass between sites and the whole park is immaculate. They appear to be adding some more sites. The management is superb - very friendly and helpful. They guide you to your site - they pick up the trash at your site. Very nice. We were in site 62. Not sure what else to say. The only down side is that it is a long ways away from any grocery store that is open on Sunday - 18 miles to be exact - same with gas. There are some other stores closer but for some reason they were not open on Sunday. It was very quiet - no road or train noise. We just stayed one night as passing through but they have a playground for people with kids so could be a nice weekend destination. We would stay here again when passing through. We camped at Des Moines West KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Lafayette Park Campground, Gothenburg, Nebraska

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $15.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a City Park - can't beat the price. It is very well cared for. Our site was surprisingly level. The water and electric are shared so not on the right side for our hook ups but we had a long enough hose and cord. There are lots of trees so very shady and mostly not good for satellite - but if you park on the perimeter you can get an open satellite shot for Direct TV. The OTA has a few channels the Verizon 4G is good. The people who manage it couldn't be nicer - so very helpful and kind. The bathroom is really old and the showers are separated only by a curtain so not as private as I would like. They are as clean as they can be considering their age. There is a great walking path adjacent to the park - it could be a bit un-nerving if you were to leave your rig unattended for a period of time because you are parked so close to a public walkway where anyone can come or go but it is a small town so probably ok. We chose site #6 and would stay here again if we are in the area. We camped at Lafayette Park Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Emerald Campground, Fort Morgan, Colorado

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $27.00
Overall Rating:      

Rustic RV park - basically dirt/gravel lot behind the Clarion Inn. Nice Management learning how to manage an RV park. The office and laundry have limited hours but the laundry is new and has new machines. Restrooms clean but they need to be sure to keep water in the floor drains to avoid sewer gases. We were in site B23 which was not very level but the utilities were good. Sites a bit close together and no picnic tables at sites. Some trees but some clear shots for Satellite TV - Direct TV signal good and Verizon good. Several Long term residents but sites pretty well kept. Would stay again for a night when passing through. The owner called to confirm our reservation which we made online. Online reservation site is pretty basic. We camped at Emerald Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Grand Junction KOA, Grand Junction, Colorado

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

Really nice KOA with great staff. Good size level sites. The park is well maintained and clean and sites are well spaced. There are a few long term residents but are well kept. There are also some tent camping sites that are really nice (if you are into that sort of thing.) We had a pull Through Site #C9. Water hook up is a little weird - it appears to be in the site next to your site on the other side of a short little fence but it worked out fine for us. The Motor Home next to us didn't have a long enough hose to use his hook up and at first tried to hook up to our water splitter but decided against that options too - thankfully. It is on the highway but we didn't hear any highway noise. Wifi was amazingly good, good cable and OTA TV as well as my Verizon 4G. Only reason it's not a 10 is because like all KOA's - it is pricey. We would stay here again. We camped at Grand Junction KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Butch Cassidy RV Park and Campground, Salina, Utah

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

We stayed here before and rated it higher. I guess we lucked out last time with a good site (#2.) This time we were in #8 and it was amazingly close to the next door sites. We could not put our awning out - barely had room for our slide out. Also the sewer hook-up was broken and we had to use rocks to hold our connection down onto it so the sewer smell didn't escape. The sewer connection at the site next to us (#7) was also broken to the point that it was not useable. They said that the wifi only worked at the office but it actually did work at our site pretty well. Verizon 4G was good and we got a clear shot for our Direct TV satellite. We would stay again if we had to as it is 1 of only 2 in Salina and not much else for miles. We camped at Butch Cassidy RV Park and Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Brigham City / Perry South KOA, Brigham City, Utah

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $42.00
Overall Rating:      

Well kept park - not much to do in the area so good for one or two night stay. Very quiet away from any major road. There was some distant train noise but not bothersome. The management was very nice and very accommodating. She gave us "her favorite site." #26. It was great. It was level and on the end of an aisle so only a neighbor on one side. More than big enough for us. The bathrooms could use an update but they were clean enough. Wifi was good as was the OTA tv and our satellite. There are some trees so we had to maneuver a bit to get a clear shot but it was fine. Verizon 4G was good too. It appeared there were some long term residents but they would be leaving soon as this park closes October 31st. We would stay again on our way through the area. We camped at Brigham City / Perry South KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Twin Falls / Jerome KOA, Twin Falls, Idaho

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $43.00
Overall Rating:      

Good stop for a couple of nights to see Twin Falls area attractions like Shoshone Falls and Twin Falls. We were in site #4 (first assigned #20 but that was right by the highway and very noisy so we asked to be reassigned farther away from the highway.) Our site was not very level - probably the most un-level we have ever been at. Management was very nice and very accommodating. The day we arrived they were winterizing the water supplies for the park and they made a point of getting ours done for us as the temps were forecast to be below freezing for the next 2 nights. The restrooms are all individual shower, toilet, sink combined. They were very, very, nice - probably some of the best we have experienced. The only reason we wouldn't rate this park a 9 or 10 is because if you get a site closer to the highway it would be very noisy. OTA TV was good and we also had a clear shot for our Satellite. Wifi was sporadic and even my Verizon 4G signal was low. We camped at Twin Falls / Jerome KOA in a Travel Trailer.

A-Frame RV Park (formerly Oregon Trails West RV Park), Baker City, Oregon

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $34.00
Overall Rating:      

Older park that could have been a KOA. Very nice management. Site was very level Hook ups convenient. Although close to the freeway there was no freeway noise and no train noise either. WiFi was pretty good but slowed down about 5:30 pm. The bathroom is REALLY old and needs updating but clean enough. There are 2 showers but the dressing area is open so no privacy. No cable TV but OTA was pretty good. There are too many trees at most sites to get any satellite. There are a lot of long term residents around the perimeter and the middle is mostly for us short stay travelers. Good enough stay for a few days to check out the Oregon Trail Interpretive Center which is well worth a visit. We camped at A-Frame RV Park (formerly Oregon Trails West RV Park) in a Travel Trailer.

Oakdale KOA, Oakdale, Wisconsin

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $39.00
Overall Rating:      

The only reason I didn't rate this park higher is because the freeway is rather loud nearby and the trains too. Park Review: Yes you CAN hear the freeway - contrary to remarks on some previous reviews and we were in a site about as far away as you can get in site 31 Which is a higher priced site as I asked to be away from the freeway but that really didn't make any difference. It is kinda like "white noise." The train wasn't bothersome. The owners and staff are very nice and helpful. We were in site 35 where there is a lot of tree cover so no satellite but the cable tv was good - 49 channels provided by Direct TV Satellite but don't try to match up the channel numbers - evidently when providing this type of "cable tv" to an RV park, the owners get to decide what number to assign to which channel. The laundry was good and the restrooms were typical for KOA - old and in need of updating but basically clean. There are some long term residents but didn't seem like very many. The utilities were just fine and easy to hook up. The site was quite level. The sites are really well spaced - not as close together as many KOA's are - that was great not to be crammed in. They pick up your trash for you which is nice. The park in general is well kept and maintained. It looked like they were either upgrading the electricity at some sites or perhaps adding electric to some other sites. We would stay here again if we had occasion to be in this area. We camped at Oakdale KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Rustic Barn RV Park, Kieler, Wisconsin

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

This is a lovely medium sized park. It is well kept and some of the sites (like ours #17) have a great view of the country side. The owners are very nice and helpful. Because we wanted to use our satellite they put us in a site without trees - it was a 50 amp site and since we are a 30 amp rig - we bought an adapter from them at a reasonable price and that worked fine. The water and electric hook ups were not on the usual side but we had long enough hose and cord to make it work. Nice concrete patio with the gravel site and grass between sites. The sites are well spaced but ours was not extremely level - but had enough blocks to level. There are a few long term residents here but the sites are well kept. The owners obviously care about the appearance of the park. It was very quiet no road or train noise. The wifi was good and the OTA TV was OK but we prefer our satellite. Our Verizon 4G was good as well. They have a nice lounge with a big TV and a fireplace. There is also a chapel here. Nice place. We would definitely stay here again if in the area. I think this is the first time I have given a 10 to any park. We camped at Rustic Barn RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

I-29 Hwy 34 Campground, Pacific Junction, Iowa

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $18.00
Overall Rating:      

Can't beat the price. The owner is great. As we were leaving we called him to tell him that the water wouldn't shut off all the way and was dripping. He was there within 5 minutes to fix it. With that said - this park sustained some significant damage from a tornado but they are working hard to restore it. The sites are pretty well spaced and level. The utilities are all good. The wifi is also quite good as was our Verizon 4G signal and our Direct TV Signal. The roads are pretty rutted and pot holed and muddy when it rains. There is grass between sites and several long term residents. That seems like the main source of sustained income for this park so be sure to call for availability. When we were there it was pay by check or cash only. There is a lot of highway noise but pretty steady so it seems kinda like "white noise." This is a good place to stay if you have business in Council Bluffs or just need to stop traveling for a night or two. We would stop again if we were in the area. Like I said - you can't beat the price. We camped at I-29 Hwy 34 Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Lakehead Boat Basin, Duluth, Minnesota

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $44.00
Overall Rating:      

As other reviews said - this is really just a parking area by a marina. They have about 20 sites with full hookups. We were in site #7. Must use a pressure reducer as their psi is over 125 - but the gentleman at check in does tell you that. The wifi worked well and we had good Verizon phone and 4G LTE signals. We were also able to get our satellite set up in a good position and there were good over the air tv stations as well. This location is great for a place to stay while visiting Duluth as it is within walking distance to the old downtown "touristy" area and other attractions. It is pretty quiet on the weekend - they don't work on the nearby hotel construction then but it does pick up pretty loud on Monday morning. On the weekend the only noise you hear is the horn blowing of ships going through the nearby "lift bridge" which is a pretty cool thing to see. It rained really hard one night while we were there and the drainage on the lot is not good. We had over an inch of standing water right outside our door in the morning. Don't follow GPS all the way to the park - it is better to turn on 10th and stop where the sign for RV check in is. It is the office of the marina. The restrooms are strange. They are like the "head" in a boat - they even flush like an RV or boat toilet. There is just one for women, one for men and one unisex combined toilet and shower. They were clean enough but quite minimal. We were there primarily to visit family and would stay here again as it was close to them. But it sure isn't a place you want to camp if you want to hang out at your RV during the day. We camped at Lakehead Boat Basin in a Travel Trailer.

Camp Faribo Campground, Faribault, Minnesota

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $39.00
Overall Rating:      

We paid a weekly rate of $250 (so basically 1 night free.) This is medium size park with about 60 sites. We were in site 20 and were able to get our satellite into a good position for Direct TV. The owner/operators are very nice. The gentleman who showed us to our site use to work setting up satellite so he was very helpful. He even helped me program my receiver when it wasn't working properly. Site 20 was great for us - no neighbors on one side. The utilities were all just fine. We were told we wouldn't need a pressure reducer and that was helpful as their pressure is already about 40 - 50 psi well water. We didn't really get the air tv channels that they mentioned. The wifi was ok. We had good Verizon phone and 4G LTE signal. We stayed a week while attending to family business in nearby Northfield, MN. The park filled up significantly on the weekend and then emptied out during the week. There are quite few long term residents but they were all on the other side of the park from us. The restrooms could really use some work and the showers cost 25 cents for 9 minutes but they didn't look like someplace I would want to shower. They were probably clean enough but in pretty bad shape so didn't really look clean. We would stay here again if in the area. We camped at Camp Faribo Campground in a Travel Trailer.

St. Cloud Campground & RV Park, St. Cloud, Minnesota

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $38.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a good size park with about 99 sites. We were able to get in on a Friday night - They were full but the nice owners put us in a site away from the main part of the park. We did have electric and water but no sewer at this site. It was on grass and not clearly delineated as to the boundaries of our site but that was not a problem. The wifi was quite good and free. We had good Verizon phone and 4G LTE signals. The restrooms were just OK - I don't think I would shower there. There are a lot of long term residents there and it appears to be very popular on the weekends for families. The long term resident sites were well kept for the most part. The over the air tv signal was very good (close to St. Cloud) but we also had a lot of room to set up our satellite for Direct TV and that was good as well. The road in to this area was quite narrow - I felt in peril of hitting some large trees. The gentleman who led us to our site took us in a direction that made was quite close to those trees - he could have led us in a different way that would not have been so bad. For our exit we had to go around the park because they have a sign placed in a very bad place to make the right turn to go out. We were in site 91. It was actually nice to be away from the rest of the park as it was nice and quiet and no smoky fires by us. We just stayed one night but would stay here again if in the area - and we would request one of these sites away from the crowd. It is very close to gas and grocery too. We camped at St. Cloud Campground & RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Jamestown Campground, Jamestown, North Dakota

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $39.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a medium size park with about 50 sites. The owner/operators are very nice and very helpful. While it is close to the freeway it is below the road so the freeway noise was not really noticeable. The hook ups were easy and the size pretty level. Our site had a new electrical service. Previous reviews mentioned that the frontage road to the park was a mile of rough washboard rutted gravel road - that is very true but you just need to go slow. The restroom was very nice and very clean - looked to be recently redone. Previous reviews also mentioned that wifi was slow but we found it to be quite good and free. Good Verizon signal for phone and 4G LTE. We were in site 48 to get satellite and that worked out really well. Could not get any over the air channels that would come in clearly contrary to the information we were given at check in. The park in general is very clean and well kept - former KOA yes but just fine. We noticed a few long term residents but their sites were kept clean. We would stay here again for a night - no reason for us to stay any longer in that area. We camped at Jamestown Campground in a Travel Trailer.
