USA RV Park, Gallup, New Mexico

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

Started out to be a one nighter on the road - ended up staying two to rest and take care of a small repair - wiring for trailer lights. Nice gravel level site with plenty of room no need to unhitch. Very clean park with wonderful grounds will stop here again. Nice office and store. We camped at USA RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Akron/Canton Jellystone Park Camp Resort, Uniontown, Ohio

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

I spent an entire summer here in the seasonal section and loved it. Plenty of activities and the pool and miniature golf is included and they have the best ice cream for miles around. This is a great park for families with kids - great playground and organized activities. The activity director is the bomb and keeps the kids busy! WiFi was very good in my section and nice level spot with full hookups - they come and empty an in-ground waste tank every week, very nice staff and very helpful. Plus Yogi and BooBoo run around all the time. I will stay here again. Hard to post my rate as I paid for the season! We camped at Akron/Canton Jellystone Park Camp Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Great Park once you get there - long twisty road up to the campground, but a wonderful spot with wooded sites and wild turkeys everywhere. Was there in the fall and the colors were amazing. We camped at Elkmont Campground (NPS Campground) in a Fifth Wheel.

Santa Rosa Campground & RV Park, Santa Rosa, New Mexico

Date of Stay: May, 2016 - $27.00
Overall Rating:      

Stopped for an overnighter while traveling - arrived after hours and used the self checkin which was fine with good instructions...the park is confusing after dark and it took a while to be headed in the correct direction, some sites next to each other enter from opposite directions. I chalk that up to it being dark and I was tired. Certainly good enough for a travel night. Electric was good did not use any other amenities. We camped at Santa Rosa Campground & RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

ACT Campground & Environmental Learning Center, Moab, Utah

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

I normally stay at another park when visiting Moab however I contacted this new park and got a nice discount with my Passport America so decided to check it out and it is wonderful.

It is brand new so lacking in vegitation but the sites are level and the hookups are great - they have a common kitchen to use and laundry and the showers are large and clean. Cable TV has a zillion channels and works great. WiFi is OK - but my Verizon hotspot has 4G so I prefer that.

Great checkin and hospitality. Will stay here again for sure. We camped at ACT Campground & Environmental Learning Center in a Fifth Wheel.

Heald's Haven RV & Campground (CLOSED), Salmon, Idaho

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

I was passing through Salmon ID on my way to Craters of the Moon and was lucky enough to discover this wonderful little RV Park. All sites are pull throughs and on grass. The owner guided me to my site and is a wonderful woman - very friendly. No credit cards taken, cash or checks only. The view of the valley and river was amazing. The restrooms and showers were spotless and nice.

Stop here it is worth it. We camped at Heald's Haven RV & Campground (CLOSED) in a Fifth Wheel.

Wine Ridge RV Resort & Cottages, Pahrump, Nevada

Date of Stay: October, 2014 - $12.00
Overall Rating:      

No question this is one of the nicest RV Parks I have ever been to - just checked in with a super friendly staff. Rate reflects Passport America membership. Chose a back-in site and it is nice gravel, level with a nice concrete pad for my chair and table. Good electric and water. Sewer is at the very rear of the site and will require me to use an extension and my supports - it is almost uphill. But not an issue. Only here for 5 nights and will more than likely not dump. Beautiful office and swimming pools with hot tub and even pickle ball courts. Lots of winter residents and it seems active and friendly. Showers are individual rooms and spotless. Free breakfast in the mornings and weekly dinners! This may be a winter spot for me in the coming years. Lots to do around here with Death Valley etc. I would rate this higher than a 10 but that is all that is allowed. I am anxious to try out the restaurant at the winery - it is rated as the best in town! I will update. I am here for 5 nights and it will be a nice rest during my long travel from Montana and Alaska! We camped at Wine Ridge RV Resort & Cottages in a Fifth Wheel.

Diamond "S" RV Park & Campground, Ronan, Montana

Date of Stay: June, 2014 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

This was my first time to stop here, although I have driven by it a number of times. This is the very first RV Park where the pull throughs are grass and beautiful grass at that, almost feel bad parking on the grass. The utilities were right where they are supposed to be and everything worked well. I had 30 amp service and it was wired correctly and was good power. The park is spotless and even though near the highway it was quiet and very nice. I will stay here again for sure! They only accept cash so no credit or debit cards which is normally not a problem for me, the rate is reasonable for the service and the front desk was informative and very helpful. Nice trees and shade - wonderful setting. We camped at Diamond "S" RV Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Southside RV Park, Dillon, Montana

Date of Stay: June, 2014 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

I travel North and South every season and this is always one of my overnight stops and occasionally longer when I fish the Beaverhead... This place is so nice and convenient to everything. The park is kept in perfect shape and the owners are about as friendly as you could want! Restrooms are spotless and nice sites and utilities are all perfect! WiFi is very good, although I get 4G on my Verizon Hot Spot so no need. Dillon is a great town to visit and this is THE place to stay. I will be back many times for sure!! We camped at Southside RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Southside RV Park, Dillon, Montana

Date of Stay: October, 2013 - $38.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a regular stopping point for me every year and stay for a few days to fish the Beaverhead River, a fantastic trout fishery. The staff / owners here are very friendly and take great care of the park. The hook-ups are convenient and reliable. large pull through sites are a breeze to maneuver. Great clean restrooms and nice showers with plenty of water pressure and good hot water. WiFi works great. Easy access to town and one of the best restaurants Sparky's Garage is within walking distance. Dillon is a wonderful historic Western town with great museums and a worthwhile stop. I will return here many times! We camped at Southside RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Valley of Fire State Park, Overton, Nevada

Date of Stay: October, 2013 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

I have been to this park 4 times in the past two years, it is one of my all time favorite places to visit. Recently, they have added several sites for RV's with good electric and water hook-ups. Beautiful level sites with plenty of room and tastefully done without ruining the ambiance of camping right in the beautiful Red Rock. The views around the campground are to die for. Get there early for a hook-up site. It fills up especially on the weekends. There is a dump station near the entrance to the campground area. I also was able to get 3G service on my Verizon Hotspot, so able to get email, slow but it worked. No TV reception, but who needs that with the views. Don't miss this campground, one of the best in the country! I will return many, many times. The hiking and photography around here is amazing. Tent sites are $10.00 per night and RV with electric and water are an additional $10.00 per night. Very reasonable for such a beautiful location. Great sun shelter and picnic table and fire ring at each site. We camped at Valley of Fire State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Camp Tamarack RV Park, Grande Prairie, Alberta

Date of Stay: April, 2013 - $33.00
Overall Rating:      

Pulled in just for the night on the way to Alaska. It is a short 5 miles south of the main route 43, but easy to find. I got a back in site, easy fit. Too early for water and sewer to be turned on, but dump station open and water available at the front office. Very nice check-in people, very helpful. I will stay here again. Good Sam park and price shows with discount. We camped at Camp Tamarack RV Park in a Motorhome.

Blake Ranch RV Park & Horse Motel, Kingman, Arizona

Date of Stay: January, 2013 - $10.00
Overall Rating:      

It just don't get any better. My rate reflects the winter special of pay for two months and get the third month free. This is my winter spot! The rate does not include electric as it is metered, but it does include cable TV, WiFi and a nice level back-in site with plenty of room, picnic table etc. I was looking for quite awhile for a place to hang my hat for the winter. This owner was very responsive to my emails and made some great suggestions and some alternative pay plans, great people. Can you say clean; this place is spotless. Gravel sites, but nice small "P" gravel, raked and clean. Good hook-ups, lit, but not too bright. Wonderful rec room and by far some of the best bathrooms and shower rooms of any campground. Large 10 foot square full bathroom, shower, toilet, a nice sink and counter, hooks to hang your clothes; they thought of everything. I was at one other campground that had this type setup and always return there because of it. I will be back here for sure, maybe all of next winter or at least 3 months. We camped at Blake Ranch RV Park & Horse Motel in a Fifth Wheel.

Portal RV Resort and Campground, Moab, Utah

Date of Stay: December, 2012 - $37.00
Overall Rating:      

I love this place and stay here whenever I am in Moab. This time was a little rough as it got very, very cold and they had some freezing pipe problems. Rare to have problems in this park, but it was that way everywhere in town. They got things fixed in fairly short order, but the bathrooms in the middle of the camping area flooded and they had to do some pretty major repairs. They were down for awhile, but the showers and the restrooms were open. This is a great park with fast WiFi, clean and well kept. I will stay here again and I go to Moab often. We camped at Portal RV Resort and Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Was here at end of season and water and sewer hookups were shut down. Decent place for a night or two and very reasonable this time of year so many other ones are closed. I would stay here again. Wi-Fi is good and my Verizon Hot Spot also works. We camped at Pony Express Motel and RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
