Elkhorn Ridge RV Resort & Cabins, Spearfish, South Dakota

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $75.00
Overall Rating:

Stayed there for American Coach Assoc. National Rally. Beautiful resort and sites, all paved streets and pads. Easy access off I 90, new and they are still building. The best campstore I have ever seen with outstanding wine selections, wall of wine. This was important because could purchase a bottle there and bring to the dinners, the wine poured at the rally was bad, license laws preclude outside purchases to be brought inbut buying there was ok. Picturesque All paved streets. Wifi spotty. The activity bldg is not big enough for the size of our group, (200+) tables squashed together and acoustics awful, a barn of sorts. Difficult to talk and move around. Would be ok and more comfortable for less than 100 people. They have a small restaurant for ciffee, etcm we did not eat there. Will be nice if they build a bar & restaurant. If in the area a wonderful resort. We camped at Elkhorn Ridge RV Resort & Cabins in a Motorhome.

Famil-E-Fun Campground and RV Park, Mitchell, South Dakota

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $34.00
Overall Rating:

Very easy access off I-90. Friendly helpful hosts. Nothing fancy but peaceful, quiet, lovely. Gravel site and roads, level. We stayed 2 nights, one en route and one returning. To get satellite reception you must be in back row, more open, 2nd nite ours did not work under the trees, but it did not matter for 1 overnight. 50 amp hookup, sewer, water. Although I did not use them, I walked to see restrooms and showers which are older style but immaculate. We would definitely stay again, easy pull thru for our 42ft with toad, a pickup truck. They also have a quaint small store. We camped at Famil-E-Fun Campground and RV Park in a Motorhome.

Kamp Komfort RV Park & Campground, Carlock, Illinois

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

We tried this for an overnight enroute and it is adequate for that. Hookups worked and check in was easy. It is an older place but maintained well. A bit remote from anything although the interstate is adjacent, takes some winding back along roads to arrive. It closes in October or November for the winter. We camped at Kamp Komfort RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

Park Center, Port Isabel, Texas

Date of Stay: February, 2017 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

It is $300+ a month and higher for premium An old place where too many campers are crammed in, an example of what some settle for as many return each year taking advantage of cheap prices. This was our first time here, it was the only place we could get for a month, and while all the staff are very cordial and do their best, the RVpark leaves much to be desired. Parking so close to the adjacent space on grass & dirt. no place to sit other than squeezed alongside your rig. Lots of permanents too . There are some premium newer sites across a channel, but those were booked and so we had to take what we could get to stay in the area. Terrible mud and grime gets on all connecting hoses from the rains. There are good things, most people are friendly, a pool and hot tub, water aerobic classes, which are crowded I heard there was yoga but never could figure out where it was held. There are activities from in the rec hall, but these are all bring your own plates, utensils, etc. We skipped that as always crowded too so missed out on the "fun" It is gated so that is some security and a deposit is collected for the remote to open one gate. One walking gate is kept open all day long.. Internal roads are very narrow and rough and when it rained our row was along a minor creek because the water did not drain. . Too many people there and walking becomes a chore dodging automobiles and golf carts. There is an extra charge for cable which does not work well so we canceled.Wifi is awful unless one goes to the rec hall. Electricity is extra and had we stayed the month would have been about$100. The laundromat is dumpy, rusted machines from salt air, inadequate for the population and several machines do not work but take money from unsuspecting. The park is not responsible for the refunds nor do they post out of order signs. Several of these longtimers park any which way and their vehicles in front of rigs make it difficult to navigate around them. We camped at Park Center in a Motorhome.

Pensacola RV Park, Pensacola, Florida

Date of Stay: January, 2017 - $37.00
Overall Rating:

We really enjoy staying here, it is a great s[ot to spend time and see sites all around the area. We spent almost a month in December-January and then another overnight in January. It is a better value to stay for at least a week, but on our return trip we had to move on to another destination. Sites are gravel and level and nicely maintained. My only slight criticism is there are too many dogs per site. we do not have animals and really do not want to listen to yappers. This is not a problem with the owners or the park but with the people who stay there, I think they should limit to one dog per site. We camped at Pensacola RV Park in a Motorhome.

Overall Rating:

We stayed overnight and have in the past. It is decent and the owners staff are cordial, grass parking in a big field. A great value and we noticed it is no longer inthe Good Sam Directory/ The owner said he could not afford to pay for that so it was good we knew about it from previous trips/ it is a good bargain. lots of permanent types all around the perimeters.

Mountain Top Bluegrass Festival & Campground, Tarentum, Pennsylvania

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

As others have commented, there are no other RV options in the Pittsburgh area. That said, we have been visiting annually for over 8 years and are very glad to have Mt Top, new family of owners are doing their best. They have added 19 spaces and gravel to several perimeter sites. Yes, it needs sewer or greater availability of pump outs than weekly. Perhaps they will arrange that. Certainly the dump access and egress is rough. This trip I noticed many tenters/several RV campers use the shower in the basement of the home. I used the laundry this visit for a load of sheets, it was ok. For all the rigs, perhaps they could add laundry machines and showers, but it will take time. The sites are level and it is a gorgeous setting overlooking the valley. Very safe and secure. Spacious. The access road Sun Mine is owned by the county so not under control of the RV site owners. The owners are very helpful and cordial. They set up a table in the basement for books swaps and free stuff. We replaced our coffeemaker while there and donated the one we had which was too small for us. As I said, it is the only place around and they are doing their best, it will take time. They get filled for events like the recent US Open, Steelers games, concerts, etc. We camped at Mountain Top Bluegrass Festival & Campground in a Motorhome.

Tomorrow's Stars RV Resort, South Charleston, Ohio

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $37.00
Overall Rating:

We needed a spot for overnight and this worked perfectly. Pull through and level and we did not have to unhook. A very quiet RV park filled with many seasonals and perhaps full timers. Lots of family amenities, miniature golf, basketball, swimming pool, and plenty of children using all these and riding their bikes. We stayed here once before in 2012 and this time again we decided we must book a longer stay to take in local activities. Very easy access off I 70. Quiet times are respected. Lots of spaces available in a kind of filed area. We camped at Tomorrow's Stars RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Misty Mountain Camp Resort, Greenwood, Virginia

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $52.00
Overall Rating:

It was our first stay while we visited Charlottesville and nearby areas. This RV park is very convenient and had a just big enough space for our coach. They pick up trash at the site several times a day which is a nice bonus. I like to walk for miles each morning but the hills here are very very steep, and there is not any convenient path along lower sites other than going round and round in circles, but it is the hills of Virginia. Lots of tent sites some right next to RV's. Spaces are close backins. Barely room to park the tow vehicles adjacent, so roads get hard to navigate with vehicles sticking out. No convenient way to hook up but to block the road. The office staff are very friendly and helpful and there is a nice little store with necessities. As packed as it was quiet times are readily observed and it was quiet at night. Lots of tents, trailers, RV's many locals come and go. No TV reception, must have satellite. Amenities for children who were fully using pool, jump house, corn toss, etc riding their bikes and fishing. There were standing water ruts but it rained hard during our stay so not much could be done. We were thankful to have a space convenient to the activities we planned and we enjoyed our stay.. We camped at Misty Mountain Camp Resort in a Motorhome.

Cross Creek Camping Resort, Delaware, Ohio

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $52.00
Overall Rating:

Excellent access to Columbus. Nice RV park but almost fulll of local seasonals, perhaps live ins who take up most of the better spaces. We booked a big rig site because we had never been here before and with our 42 ft coach & toad wanted to get adequate. The person on the phone was not helpful about the sites, told me to look at their site map online when I called. I did not have that accessible at the moment so I booked the big rig site which she assured us was level. It was note, it was on a hill, the sites adjacent were occupied by people staying for the season it appeared. We were able to level but could have used another 50 amp site that would have been level. People 2 sites down from us had several enclosed in a fence outside, the dogs that yipped and barked all day and night. Very annoying. The second day I stopped at the office to complain and the people did take their dogs inside. Lots of amenities for families, pool, etc.. A few park models that are sold out immediately. Tight narrow roads around. Laundry was clean. Many golf carts and vehicles per space and they are often alongside the narrow roads blocking access, one has to stop and beep the horn or ask that they move. Seems the park could do better at that but if the spaces are occupied as they were during our stay, not much will change. If we visit here again we will know to use their site map first. We camped at Cross Creek Camping Resort in a Motorhome.

Iron Horse RV Resort, Elko, Nevada

Date of Stay: October, 2015 - $47.00
Overall Rating:

As others said, difficult to find we passed the entrance and had to turn back. Affiliated with the Hilton Hotel on the hill above. Nice paved streets but the site we had was gravel and a bit sloped, difficult to pull into with our 40 ft coach and towed mid size truck. We were not completely level. We only stayed overnight, it was expensive for the stay. No enforcement of the doggie poop pick up rules and some dogs running lose. Many permanent or semi permanent residents, several park model cabins which were all occupied by workers in mines and the area. Nothing here, must unhook and drive up the hill and down the road. It is very pretty but would be better with a small store, snack bar, etc. We were only overnight so it worked out ok. We camped at Iron Horse RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Phillips RV Park, Evanston, Wyoming

Date of Stay: October, 2015 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

This is a very old campground more suited to campers, small trailers, etc. But we were only there for 1 overnight while traveling. The price was discounted if we paid cash, which we did. They were soon closing for the season and seemed dis-interested if we stayed there or not. Cable is fuzzy reception to none. Noisy traffic with a nearby industrial site. Very difficult to maneuver our 40 ft coach and toad a mid sized truck. Would not stay here again, a parking lot would be better. Trees should be cleared or advertise that this is for small campers. The only reason I rate satisfactory is it was not totally bad, but just not worth it, rather below mediocre. We camped at Phillips RV Park in a Motorhome.

Cabela's RV Park & Campground, Sidney, Nebraska

Date of Stay: October, 2015 - $1.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed free but this review requires at least $1 so we added that. By signing up as a Cabela's Club member at the store we were given the night gratis. Gravel roads more amenable to smaller campers, smaller coaches than our 40+ft coach + towed truck. Gravel sites. Walked up to the store to pay as the office was closed, it is all self service this off season time of year. Stayed only overnight while traveling; it was easy off and back onto I 80. No service at the office and no wifi. Water and 50 amp hookups. Could not beat the free night, but the posted prices seemed high for no personal service, appx. $48 as I recall. Many were staying in the free lot of the store. We camped at Cabela's RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

Very clean, nicely maintained, level pull thru site for our 40 ft coach + toad truck. We only stopped overnight and did not need to unhook. Easy access off I80, exit 420. We received Good Sam discount along with military. This is a patriotic park, run by a military family. Very friendly staff and welcome. Likely if there were a race going on the noise from the track would be heard, but it was quiet during our night. Would stay here again when traveling.
