Pointes West Army Rec Area (Military FamCamp), Appling, Georgia

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $18.00
Overall Rating:

A lovely setting on a lake and great tree cover. Some sites took a little work to get into but it is because they were desirable sites near the lake and at the edge of the forest. A nice military famcamp for the fall and winter, too hot in the summer though for me. Highly recommended.

A popular place so plan well in advance. Avoid Friday or Saturday nights if you don't like noisy campfire crowds. Other than that, a great get away spot in the country. We camped at Pointes West Army Rec Area (Military FamCamp) in a Fifth Wheel.

Snake River RV Park & Campground, Idaho Falls, Idaho

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $43.00
Overall Rating:

Very crowded, tight sites with alternating directions for RVs. Many long term campers, it looks like a construction crew campground. WiFi is just OK, sites are very small and not very nice (primarily gravel/grass/dirt in nature). Park has an air about it that is not comfortable or conducive for walking or exploring the park. The overnight fee is extremely over priced! At $47 with a Good Sam discount you expect some amenities; however, there is no cable or satellite TV offered, the pool is 1/2 full with a couple of stray buckets floating around inside. I realize it is still Spring and the pool may not be usable now; however, it should either be emptied or covered as a safety measure and to prevent it being the eye-sore it appears to be now. I WOULD NOT recommend this park to anyone and I will not stay here again. I don't know how this park received the better than average ratings it displays, it was a big disappointment to me. My best tip would be to avoid this park unless you have no alternative. We camped at Snake River RV Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Apache Flats RV Resort (Military FamCamp), Sierra Vista, Arizona

Date of Stay: March, 2018 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

This RV park at Ft. Huachuca, Arizona has become one of our most favorite parks. Very nice and large sites, quiet settings, nature trails, beautiful weather, great service, cable TV, Wi-Fi, etc. make this a great RV park. Its elevation at over 4400 feet make it cooler than the surrounding areas at lower elevations. Base has excellent library, commissary, exchange, and service stations with both diesel and propane available. A great RV park for those who qualify. Highly recommended!!

Gila Bend Famcamp, Gila Bend Air Force Auxilary Field, Luke AFB, Arizona

Date of Stay: February, 2018 - $10.00
Overall Rating:

Conveniently located just off interstate. Quiet park in the desert at Gila Bend installation. First come, first served with no reservations accepted. Osmosis system for drinking water, very open area and popular with snow birds in the winter. Also very inexpensive and a great place to stay for a short time.

First come, first served policy dictates you check in as soon as possible if sites are available. We camped at Gila Bend Famcamp in a Fifth Wheel.

Desert Breeze Travel Camp (Military FamCamp), Yuma Proving Grounds, Arizona

Date of Stay: January, 2018 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

Military rv park at Yuma Proving Grounds, Yuma, Arizona. Located about 20 minutes from Yuma in a quiet setting in the desert. Great camaraderie and great value here. Mostly rate available too at reduced rate. Although the sites are a little close, there is a feeling of open-ness in the park. Nearby library, commissary and restaurant are all within easy walking distance, very convenient. Highly recommended for those who qualify to utilize.

Volunteer Park Travel Campsite (Military FamCamp), White Sands Missile Range, New Mexico

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $10.00
Overall Rating:

A small military famcamp near White Sands, NM. Only a few sites so reservations are a must. Small sites with a small covered picnic table structure. Can't beat the price and you are close enough to visit White Sands park area. We camped at Volunteer Park Travel Campsite (Military FamCamp) in a Fifth Wheel.

Parkwood RV Park and Cottages, Statesboro, Georgia

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $32.00
Overall Rating:

Small rv park with close sites. While we were there several people tied their pets up and then did not care for them. Some wondered into our site and the barking was a nuisance. To check in you have to walk through a part of the adjoining motel about 100 yards away. Office was stale and dated for sure. An OK place if you have to stay in this area but not a desirable rv park if you have other choices. We camped at Parkwood RV Park and Cottages in a Fifth Wheel.

Blue Ox RV Park, Albany, Oregon

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

I have stayed here before and this park was nice and had nice sites. Unfortunately, during my stay this time construction was underway and I was placed near the laundry and "pet relief station." The noise, dust, and smell were very unpleasant and a great distraction. The sites seem to be tightly arranged with your neighbor being very close to you. I will not stay here again, it is just too congested and not a pleasant experience. We camped at Blue Ox RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Toad River Lodge & RV Park, Toad River, British Columbia

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

Very quiet setting on a beaver pond with active dam. Very close sites though and very basic. When they are busy you are told to just go see if there are any empty sites and let them know---not very professional. Rates are good, restaurant has good food as well. Has gotten better over the last several years but is still a basic rv campground. We camped at Toad River Lodge & RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

An ok place to stay overnight in the middle of nowhere. Summer time is very busy and reservations are almost mandatory. Rates are good, sites are very small, tight, and just a basic parking place for your rig. Very few other options though.

Coeur D'Alene RV Resort, Post Falls, Idaho

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

This park uses the term "resort" which it definitely is not! There are many "homesteaders" here with rigs that are at least 20+ years old and in terrible condition. Many are skirted with giant propane tanks, wooden stairs, etc. It looks much more like a modified trailer park or a work camp. Bathrooms have plenty of space with a private shower area(locking door); however, they are not maintained well and the shower stall and curtain were both dingy from lack of cleaning. Staff was friendly but very unprofessional(young receptionist with feet propped up on desk) at check in desk. Dumpster top was broken into as well. Just not an appealing park---much less an rv resort. Don't believe this is a resort, it is just an average rv park with many homesteaders and dumpy rigs. Overpriced for what you get. Not recommended.

The Canyon RV Resort on Sinclair Creek, Radium Hot Springs, British Columbia

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $56.00
Overall Rating:

The use of the word "resort" is a real misnomer for this park. It is in a beautiful setting; however, the sites are small, crowded, and very expensive. Street layout is single laned with no room for 2 rvs to pass each other. Walking bridges over Sinclair creek are wobbly and seem very fragile. This park is way over priced, and way over hyped. It is simply NOT a resort but rather a standard, old style campground in a nice setting. My tip would be to avoid this park. Its rates are way out of line with the park. Not a resort! The staff was not particularly friendly either. Washing machines are old and very limited in number(3) and work area, especially for a park with 112 sites. Park has cable tv which is OK; however, if you don't have your own coaxial cable the rental fee for a cable is $10 per day. We camped at The Canyon RV Resort on Sinclair Creek in a Fifth Wheel.

Rotary Campground, Grande Prairie, Alberta

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

The park is very conveniently accessed from the main highway going through Grande Prairie(Alaska Highway 97). Unfortunately, if you wish to have full hookups you must stay in the upper section of the park. Sites in this section are all back in and very tightly spaced. Electric and sewer connections are at the back of the sight so you will need long hoses and cords. Best sites are #45-#61 in the lower section. They are electric and water only so you must use the sani-dump station; however, these sites are nice, long and flat and easy to get into and out of. We camped at Rotary Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

You are better off to get a drive through site without the sewer hook-up, then use the sani-dump. This park is accessed by driving through the local community college parking lot which is a very tight turn. Staff was very friendly and courteous and apologetic for tight spacing and road conditions.

This "park" is really a large, gravel parking area with hook-ups. There is no landscaping, just gravel and hook up postings. However, it is convenient(right on the side of the highway) coming out of Whitehorse. Staff was very friendly and the park store is well stocked with rv supplies and souvenirs.
