Joplin KOA

Joplin, Missouri

Date of Stay:

Stayed here for an overnight. Cable didn't work so pulled out satellite. Neighbor who pulled in said he's stayed here before and had trouble with cable in the past too. Didn't contact the office because we had no plans to move sites and satellite was easy to set up. Very nice pond/lake on site. Also has a fenced in dog play area that looked clean.

Stayed here on an overnight. Convenient to I 40. Staff friendly. Had ice cold watermelon at 3 o'clock. It tasted sooo good after a long warm day on the highway. Cable TV was pretty good with limited selections. We'd stay her again for an over night.

Surprised this isn't a national park. It's the second biggest Canyon in the US next to the Grand Canyon. We stayed in the Sagebrush camping area. Road runners and wild turkeys roamed the camping area along with some deer. Heard coyotes howling at night, will never forget it. Campsites were grassy and well maintained and picnic tables are covered. Each site has a fire pit. The other camping areas have more dirt and sand and are deeper in the Canyon. Avoid the summer when it's super hot, though there is a play that is done during the summer months.

San Angelo State Park

There are two major camping areas, the North and South Shore. We stayed at the North Shore while we found most campers stayed on the South Shore near the lake. We were with 7 other campers in our group and almost had the north shore to ourselves. Signage needs a lot of work, directing people to the camping areas, to the dump station (which is usable but needs work done on it), to the bathrooms, to everything. We saw deer, birds, a snake, and javelinas. Park host was friendly and so was the ranger. Gate guard was indifferent. We ended up with a flat tire and ranger escorted the repair truck to our site so he could find us. Sites were well shaded and spacious. Each site has a covered picnic table and fire pit and grill.

Lagoons RV Resort

Rockport, Texas

Date of Stay:

We were here with a rally. Lots of full timers (or winter Texans) at this campground. The club house is VERY large with several individual rooms for playing cards or games and a library. There is an indoor pool. Parking is very limited around the clubhouse. There were no signs that said No Parking. We pulled up along the side of the building to drop off a handicapped person. A few minutes later a groundskeeper came up to us and very rudely told us to move our car and to do it NOW. He then stormed off leaving us speechless at his attitude. When brought to management's attention, they shrugged their shoulders. The staff at all levels need interpersonal communication skills training badly. Be prepared to be told to park on the grass. Usually we're told to STAY OFF THE GRASS but here they told us to park our tow vehicle on the grass because the site wasn't long enough for both the RV and tow vehicle.

This is a great campground right on a river with easy access to fishing. There's a great clubhouse with lots of games, a full kitchen, and a huge patio with several grills that overlooks the river. This campground is located on a working ranch that also has exotic animals (NOT used for hunting) so besides cattle we even saw some zebras! Staff were super friendly and the ranch foreman stopped by daily to make sure everything was working or if we needed anything. He even sat around the fire with us. The only unfortunate thing is the location of this campground. It is out in the middle of nowhere. But the night skies were beautiful.

Don't know why we didn't check the reviews before we booked this campground or we wouldn't have stayed here. The other reviewers described it perfectly. There are tons of burs which got into our dogs paws to the point we had to carry one of them. Full timers don't maintain their sites and its just generally a run down place that we won't stay at again. My husband says its like an RV graveyard, when you want to retire your old RV, bring it here and drop it off. The reception person was very nice and friendly. When we realized we hadn't packed cooking oil and the KOA store didn't have any, he gave us a cup of his own oil. Needs tons of work and KOA needs to monitor it closely.

Date of Stay:

We can't say enough good things about this campground. Its one of the top two campgrounds we've stayed at in the United states. Staff are friendly and helpful and you can use their phone in the lounge as needed. This was our second visit and it was just as good as we remembered it. Sites are spacious and wooded, trees are trimmed so its easy to maneuver around them, fire pits, picnic tables, everything you could want and still have a somewhat rustic feel. Distance to CS was not a problem for us. Only downside was the gravel trucks on the nearby roadway heading to and from a rock quarry. Deer and other wildlife are frequently seen. We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. Ten isn't a high enough score!

Alamosa KOA

Alamosa, Colorado

Date of Stay:

Run down, tired campground. Sites aren't level. Rabbits and rabbit poop EVERYWHERE. Our dogs tried to eat the poop (yes, that's gross) and one of them did eat a few turds and got sick for the rest of our vacation. Worst of all was a family with at least 5 dogs. 3 adults (mother, father, adult son) who verbally fought continuously and used foul language (fxxk you) in every sentence. If our grandchildren had been with us, we would have left immediately. We actually felt threatened by their presence. We spoke with the owners who sympathized but did nothing to correct the problem. Worst campground of our 4 week trip.

Date of Stay:

With all the beautiful campgrounds to stay in, this wasn't anywhere near expectations. The sites are very close and difficult to maneuver. The sites are all grass so its hard to tell when a site begins and ends. Though we paid for 50 amp, it is available only at every other site, so if you get there late and your next door neighbor has hooked up to the 50 amp, you're out of luck. Sewage was similar to the electric. When we arrived, the campground had rented out their ponds and open areas for a big party, making it VERY difficult to get into the campground with all the cars everywhere.

We stop in Amarillo often when we're travelling and this is the first time we've stayed at this resort and it will be our stopover place from now on. Its real convenient to a gas station that's big enough for any size motorhome and the resort is super easy to get into and out of. They have reception down to an art. There were people checking in ahead of us and behind us and no one had to wait long. The sites were pretty open, very level, and paved. The only reason they don't get a 10 is because we don't give a 10 to any campground that doesn't have picnic tables at each site. You can order pizza until early evening, though we wish they would deliver, but maybe that's asking too much. The shower rooms were individual with plenty of space and very clean. Nice grassy areas for dog walking. Fenced in dog park was also available. Very friendly staff. This area can get VERY HOT and during the summer and is windy year round which may be a good thing with all the stockyards in Amarillo. You need to check out the motorhome at the entrance to the park! Reminds us of the motorhome from the Robin William's movie RV.

Convenient to the expressway and to a Walmart less then 1/2 away. Sites a little snug and had to watch for a tree, but we seldom complain about trees since so many campgrounds don't have any! For a quick overnight it was great.

Date of Stay:

We had a patio site with table and chairs, fire pit and grill. Site was very nice and quiet and right across from a dog walk area which was perfect for our 3 dogs. Sites are gravel and pretty level. Not a huge site, but met our needs. Several KOA Kabins in the park. Located just on the outskirts of town. Entrance kind of creeps up on you with speeding traffic to contend with. Had a nice little vegetable and herb garden that everyone was invited to enjoy. Gave an excellent recommendation for a day dog boarding facility when we took the all day train ride to Silverton.

Date of Stay:

Very nice campground with friendly and helpful staff. Followed KOA directions to the campground. We've learned not to rely on GPS for any campground directions. Our site had a wooden deck which was very pleasant to use and overlooked the valley. Even on the weekend date we were there, there were lots of people but overall it was quiet. The layout of the campground is a little unusual to say the least; it's more like a maze. So either ask for an escort or be care you don't miss any turns. Getting into some sites requires some maneuvering and attention. We would not hesitate to stay here again. Lots of playground activities for the kids.

Stayed at this campground for two nights en route from San Antonio TX to Tennessee. Sites were narrow and you have to be careful when you pull out so you don't drop into the drainage ditches on either side of campsites. Avoid sites 160 to 152; they are on the roadway into the campground it had constant traffic--many drivers didn't follow posted speed limits. Campground is old but well maintained. Staff were friendly. A bad storm came through while we came through but we had power throughout, making us luckier than many people in Lafayette.
