8 Flags RV Park, Milk River, Alberta

Date of Stay: April, 2016 - $25.00

Nice small convenient park close to the border crossing. They are open year round, though only power from Nov to Apr. Good place! We camped at 8 Flags RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Salt Lake City KOA, Salt Lake City, Utah

Date of Stay: April, 2016 - $45.00
Overall Rating:      

This very large KOA is similar to most other KOA facilities, in that it is extremely over-priced, though with very good facilities. Our rate includes a 10% KOA discount, for which you have the pleasure of paying $27 annually. The only reason we stay here is the free shuttle (provided by the LDS Church, not the KOA) which goes directly downtown. Note that the tree coverage is quite extensive, so you might not get a good satellite shot. The laundry was reasonably priced and clean. We will probably stay here again (unfortunately) since it is more or less the only game in town if you want to get to Temple Square and the Family History Library. We camped at Salt Lake City KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

If you are doing genealogy, the Family History Library is the center of the universe. The experts there will help you get started, or help you with the most arcane questions. Ride the free shuttle to the front door!

Beaver KOA, Beaver, Utah

Date of Stay: April, 2016 - $35.00
Overall Rating:      

Just like almost all KOA's, this one is overpriced but has excellent facilities. Our price reflects a 10% KOA membership discount as well as a "stay seven, pay six" weekly discount. Retail price is much higher. The laundry was clean and reasonably priced. Satellite connections are possible at most sites, if you are a bit flexible.

We might stay here again. We camped at Beaver KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Lake Mead RV Village, Boulder City, Nevada

Date of Stay: March, 2016 - $34.00
Overall Rating:      

Within the National Recreation Area, this place offers a fully-serviced option to the non-serviced NPS campground beside it. Our rate reflects a Good Sam discount, but be aware that users must pay the Lake Mead NRA entrance fee as well. The campground is quite good, though partially occupied by long-term residents. WiFi was adequate at our site. Laundry facilities were good and reasonably priced. We had a good satellite connection.
We would likely stay again. We camped at Lake Mead RV Village in a Fifth Wheel.

Canyons of Escalante RV Park, Escalante, Utah

Date of Stay: March, 2016 - $28.00
Overall Rating:      

This campground is very convenient to all the attractions of the Grand Staircase - Escalante National Monument. In fact, the owner is quite knowledgeable about the monument and is willing to advise visitors.
The actual campsites are adequate, with full hookups and mostly pull-through sites. On the other hand, the sites are very narrow - you will be just a few feet away from your neighbor. Access is reasonable, assuming you know how to drive your own rig! The laundry seems very expensive, but the machines are very large industrial grade, so overall the price is reasonable if you do a very large load. WiFi was very good, in fact upgraded during our stay, but a bit overloaded during busy times. Note that the town of Escalante does have a grocery store, but it is small and expensive. Stock up before arriving!
Overall, this was a good place to stay. Our rate is Good Sam. We would stay here again. We camped at Canyons of Escalante RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Arizuma Estates (formerly Saguaro RV & Mobile Resort), Apache Junction, Arizona

Date of Stay: March, 2016 - $21.00
Overall Rating:      

Just like the dozens of other fairly small RV parks in Apache Junction, this one has a mix of longer term residents and transients. The park is under new ownership and is being actively upgraded. The rate is a weekly rate. Owners and other residents are very friendly and the entire community is gated. Some of the sites (all back-in) are a bit tight because of a nearby tree or post, but most of the transient sites are fine. All are gravel surface, with paved roads. The pool and clubhouse are quite nice. Considering the price, this was a very good deal. We would definitely return. We camped at Arizuma Estates (formerly Saguaro RV & Mobile Resort) in a Fifth Wheel.

Safford Ranch Mobile Home Park, Safford, Arizona

Date of Stay: February, 2016 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

This park is mostly mobile homes and park models with primarily snowbird residents. They seemed to be extremely friendly to short-stay RV'ers like us. Anyone who walked by had a friendly word and pleasant conversation.
The park has a few RV sites at the front. They are a bit tight to get into, but the wide road in front simplifies access. Most are shaded (unusual in this part of Arizona) so don't count on a satellite shot. The park does have Wi-Fi, but only at the clubhouse. Our Verizon cellular signal was adequate but not strong. The laundry is excellent and extremely inexpensive - we paid only $5 for three loads wash and dry!
If we were in the Safford area again, we would probably stay here. We camped at Safford Ranch Mobile Home Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Willcox / Cochise, AZ KOA (formerly Magic Circle RV Park), Willcox, Arizona

Date of Stay: February, 2016 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

Rate is multi-day. Basically a gravel parking lot but with excellent power / water / sewer hookups. Many one-night stays while we were here, but a few multi-day stays. Significant highway noise from I-10. Laundry was clean and nice. We camped at Willcox / Cochise, AZ KOA (formerly Magic Circle RV Park) in a Fifth Wheel.

Roadrunner RV Park, El Paso, Texas

Date of Stay: February, 2016 - $35.00
Overall Rating:      

This place is mostly a gravel parking lot, but the services are being actively upgraded. Seems to be quite a few long-term residents. No shade so a satellite connection is easy. The sites are jammed in quite tightly, but access was OK for our 36 foot fifth wheel. The laundry was goo, clean and had three sets of washers and dryers. We stayed for three days doing some maintenance, and the co-located RV parts place was helpful. We might stay again. We camped at Roadrunner RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Rio Grande Village Campground--No Hookups (NPS Campground), Big Bend National Park, Texas

Date of Stay: February, 2016 - $14.00
Overall Rating:      

As an essentially un-serviced NPS campground, this place is about average. The campground hosts are around a lot and can be very helpful. At each site, you get a more-or-less level pad, a table, and a bear box to store food items and cooking utensils. Generators are permitted between 8 AM and 8 PM in part of the campground. Some sites are drive-through loops off the road, but most are back-ins. Read the web site carefully about size. Most sites have a bit of shade, but mostly they are exposed. We had no problem with a satellite TV connection. Forget about cell phone, or AM or FM radio. For laundry, use the nearby Rio Grande Village store facility, which is large and pretty good. Don't go to this park for the campground. Go for the rest of the truly awesome park. We camped at Rio Grande Village Campground--No Hookups (NPS Campground) in a Fifth Wheel.

If you need to ask about the wonders of Big Bend National Park, you probably should not go. Big Bend is one of our favorite spots in the world after 12 years of full-timing. This park should be on everyone's lifetime bucket list.

Marathon Motel and RV Park, Marathon, Texas

Date of Stay: January, 2016 - $36.00
Overall Rating:      

Our rate reflects a 10% discount, so the normal daily rate is very high. Given that they are literally the only game in town, they can charge what they want.
The campground has two parts - one above for 50 amp units and one below for 30 amp units. Both are gravel. All services were good, including Wi-Fi. Quite a bit of train noise from the tracks across the street, but fortunately there were only four or so trains daily.
This town is OK for a stop before or after Big Bend NP, but don't count on stocking up on supplies. Fuel is expensive and the only grocery store is very expensive and has about the same stock as a Seven-Eleven in a larger community.
We probably will not stay here again. We camped at Marathon Motel and RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Buck Creek RV Park, Abilene, Texas

Date of Stay: January, 2016 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

Basic park, really just a place to stay. Gravel roads and pads. Rudimentary but adequate laundry though expensive. All sites have a good satellite shot. Wi-Fi usually worked, but afternoons and evenings bogged down. Many long term residents. Our price is a multi-day discount, which we found to be good. We might stay here again.

Trader's Village RV Park, Grand Prairie, Texas

Date of Stay: January, 2016 - $35.00
Overall Rating:      

Associated with the adjacent weekend flea market, this campground seems to attract those who like that sort of thing. The facilities are good, but the price is high, even with the multi-day discount. The residents seemed very aloof to us, and the staff were just there. Most site are quite shaded, so don't count on a satellite connection. The laundry was large and among the most inexpensive we have encountered in 12 years of full-timing. We used this place as a spot to park our rig while we flew out of DFW airport. The cost was very high for what was basically storage. We won't stay here again. We camped at Trader's Village RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Fairway RV Park, Nacogdoches, Texas

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

This campground has no particularly wonderful facilities, but it is quite inexpensive and certainly adequate. The sites are gravel but wide and easily accessed. Most people in the campground seem to be either workers or students, but that was really not a problem. The Wi-Fi was good and fast, and the laundry was convenient and inexpensive. Our rate reflects a one week stay - basically seven nights for the price of six. We would probably stay here again. We camped at Fairway RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
