New Orleans West KOA, River Ridge, Louisiana

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

This location west of the city worked out well for our two-night stay to see the WW II Museum, since we were headed west and had no traffic hassles departing. A major weather front was crossing the country causing widespread floods, so we had thunderstorms all afternoon and night after arriving. The campground had very large puddles (this is the low country, after all) and KOA staff people diligently used water pumps to remove the worst of the standing water. We took the free (plus tip) shuttle to the museum and Uber $20 plus tip) back. We camped at New Orleans West KOA in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

The WW II museum was good but expensive and very crowded on a Wednesday morning in May, so go early. Impossible to cover such a broad subject in one museum, and it seemed as though some superfluous special effects were there mainly to keep kids entertained, but it's worth a visit. We enjoyed lunch in the museum restaurant.

St. Mary / East Glacier KOA, St Mary, Montana

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $60.00
Overall Rating:      

Staff was as friendly and helpful as we have seen in any campground. The bathrooms and showers appeared very new, much nicer than I've seen in 95% of hotels, and kept clean. Numerous laundry machines. Excellent store (and I'm not a shopper) with good quality merchandise, scooped local ice cream, and very good hot pizza delivered to your site - ours had lots of fresh vegetable toppings along with the meats. WiFi is slow (fine early in the a.m., though) and there are high winds, so don't leave an awning out. Great location, a short drive to the visitor center. We camped at St. Mary / East Glacier KOA in a Motorhome.

Big Lagoon State Park, Pensacola, Florida

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $18.00
Overall Rating:      

Location near the Outstanding Aviation Museum makes this park a winner. It can be a bit buggy, like any park near water, and next time I would try to reserve a site with a pad rather than track sand into the RV. Rate was the total Florida senior resident half price plus other fees. We camped at Big Lagoon State Park in a Motorhome.

Rancho Sedona RV Park, Sedona, Arizona

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $44.00
Overall Rating:      

After staying in sandy state parks in the desert without a blade of grass anywhere, arriving at this RV park felt like reaching an oasis. It is located along a creek and has trees, many green, irrigated areas as well as small decorative elements like metal sculptures. Numerous little boxes on poles held dog waste bags, more than I've ever seen in a campground. We reserved ahead for a planned overnight and laundry chores on the way to the Grand Canyon, but the atmosphere was so pleasant, I wished we could have stayed another night or two. We camped at Rancho Sedona RV Park in a Motorhome.

Yosemite West Mariposa KOA, Midpines, California

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $65.00
Overall Rating:      

This KOA works well for a Yosemite visit when you can't reserve inside the park since those sites sell out instantly. Just walk down to the campground entrance and the reasonably-priced YARTS bus takes you into Yosemite Valley, with no need to hassle with parking (schedules available in the office). Easy return trips available, too. We were tired after our day spent in the park, and enjoyed the convenience of a KOA-made hot pizza. The laundry and bathroom facilities were larger and cleaner than found in many campgrounds. We were glad we reserved well in advance because the campground was full and the National Park was jam-packed. We camped at Yosemite West Mariposa KOA in a Motorhome.

Sonoma County Fair Grounds, Santa Rosa, California

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $18.00
Overall Rating:      

A great bargain for anywhere in California, but especially in the heart of the Sonoma County wine country with full hookups. Our site rate was $35 (the second night, with half price Passport America rate available but just for the first night). It's a bare bones gravel parking lot with hookups, simple restrooms with showers, and accommodating staff. No atmosphere but fills a need for a place to sleep, and most sites were filled while we were there. We camped at Sonoma County Fair Grounds in a Motorhome.

Marina Dunes RV Park, Marina, California

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $74.00
Overall Rating:      

While there are many good things about this park, it was disappointing to book months in advance and arrive to discover no bathrooms, only dirty porta-potties and a trailer with showers for $74 per night. This was not caused by an understandable emergency situation, but was due to planned construction. Emailed notification and a token rate reduction to acknowledge this fact would have gone a long way toward making me like this park a lot better. It is well-located for a visit to Monterey via Highway 1, a main artery right behind the campground. However road noise is constant 24 hours a day for all sites. Throughout our visit, the other parallel road just a few feet behind our site, had road construction underway, with truck back-up beeping starting about 7:15 a.m. Finally, all the campsites seem to carry the same high price, yet some are far bigger than others. Our site down the hill was an extremely tight fit for a smallish RV with a small car parked next to it, and we watched others struggle for a half hour or more to back in trailers. The construction will end in a few weeks for future visitors, but all in all, my experience was not what its website promised as "a gem in every sense of the word." We camped at Marina Dunes RV Park in a Motorhome.

San Antonio KOA, San Antonio, Texas

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $33.00
Overall Rating:      

This KOA was ideal for our two night sightseeing stop, and we made use of the handy bus stop right in front of the campground for fast, direct, and inexpensive service into the Alamo and Riverwalk area. The restroom and showers appeared brand new inside and were kept clean. We had a back-in water and electric site in the K section at the far end of the park beneath huge shade trees, a cool and relaxing setting. It was just a few steps to the city's paved bike-hike trail, perfect for dog walks. We camped at San Antonio KOA in a Motorhome.

Dellanera RV Park , Galveston, Texas

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $44.00
Overall Rating:      

I agree with all the good comments about this park, especially the access to a great beach, where dogs are also welcome. Weather was spectacular on an early May weekend. The park's air conditioned laundry room was very handy and inexpensive, with three new-looking washers and two dryers. The few negatives were lots of sand spurs in the grass and a population of "critters" - rabbits and large black birds near or in the campsites, plus a few rats (not mice) spotted in the sand dunes behind our row of RVs. We saw traps set out by the dune fence, so the park management may be seeking to address that problem. We camped at Dellanera RV Park in a Motorhome.

Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center State Park, White Springs, Florida

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

Rate is Florida senior half price, base price. This is a peaceful park with plenty of green space for dog walking, and convenient to the intersection of I-75 and I-10. Our site was very close to the playground and restroom building but had lots of privacy with foliage on both sides. Saw a Coral Snake in our site in the early evening. We camped at Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center State Park in a Motorhome.

Ocala Sun RV Resort, Ocala, Florida

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $24.00
Overall Rating:      

This was a welcome off-season find for us at a reasonable price that we will use in the future for a first or last overnight. The entry, office, pool, and restrooms were all clean and nicely-landscaped, a good first impression. Our dog enjoyed the large, fenced park. Appeared to be a mix of closed up winter homes, current residents, and a few over-nighters like us. Some ancient and run-down trailers alternated with modern rigs, but otherwise the place has a generally well-kept appearance, nicer than many similar places in our state. Very easy off & on Interstate 75, but peaceful enough for a good night's sleep. We camped at Ocala Sun RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Fort Chiswell RV Park, Max Meadows, Virginia

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

Great location for an overnight before we headed south on I-77, and very easy off & on Interstate 81, but still a quiet spot. This campground seems to have been around for a long time, and has a peaceful, pastoral feeling because of the fields with cows and sheep that surround it. We were assigned a shady site, and noticed several big rigs pull in for overnights. Would definitely stay here again. We camped at Fort Chiswell RV Park in a Motorhome.

Jonestown / Hershey NE KOA, Jonestown, Pennsylvania

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $47.00
Overall Rating:      

After a long day on backed-up Interstates under construction in the rain, it was a big relief to pull in here and find a site available even at a higher price than we normally pay for an overnight stopover. There aren't too many options in this part of Pennsylvania and the price reflects amenities we did not need like a free shuttle to Hershey Park. We were led by golf cart to a site parallel to the river with a concrete pad, and phoned in an order for the campground store's fried chicken along with a few bananas. A nice young staffer brought it to our site just as a heavy rain began falling. Even though the chicken was dried out and the bananas were way past their prime, we were happy to be tucked in for the night and enjoyed a good night's sleep. Took advantage of the dog park while here. Some sites might be noisy where trucks roll across a bridge next to the campground. We camped at Jonestown / Hershey NE KOA in a Motorhome.

Quechee / Pine Valley KOA, White River Junction, Vermont

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $50.00
Overall Rating:      

This is one of the nicest KOAs we've stayed in, with a very accommodating and visible staff. We were assigned a spot up the hill (a little steep for dog-walking with my bad knees) and we had some trouble leveling, so called and were given a green light to move. A staffer rode up on a golf cart to provide us with the new windshield hang tag. Bathrooms up on that level looked brand new and were immaculate. After our first night, we realized a lower level full hook-up site closer to the laundry would meet our needs better, and there was no problem moving for very small charge to the upgraded site after our day of sightseeing. The campground is woodsy with a scenic pond, yet in an easy-access location near where two major highways meet, close to a lot of big-name national stores. It has full services including a big dog park on the lower level. Best of all, it is very convenient for exploring the charms of this part of Vermont. After two nights, I wished we had planned for at least one other night here in our schedule. Next time! We camped at Quechee / Pine Valley KOA in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

We visited the Calvin Coolidge historic site in nearby Plymouth, and drove up a winding, gravel mountain road to Sugarbush Farm above Woodstock to taste their cheeses and maple syrup before taking a self-guided tour of the old family farm. In Quechee you can view the Gorge by hiking down or just walking the bridge above. The old mill now houses an elegant hand-crafted glass and pottery shop with a fine dining restaurant open for lunch and dinner.

Tarry Ho Campground, Twin Mountain, New Hampshire

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

This is an older, woodsy, low key campground by a river, ideally located for visiting Mount Washington for the cog railway and a short drive to Franconia State Park. It's on a busy main road but our site further in was quiet. The Wi-Fi signal was very strong, a refreshing and welcome change from so many campgrounds. When I realized a few days ahead that I had booked a 20-amp site by mistake, the owner immediately and graciously responded by email that it would be no problem to move us to a 30-amp.

Full payment by credit card was required when reserving our three-day stay, with the Good Sam discount applied online. (Note that there is a fee of at least $25 if you cancel after booking, which might be typical in any summer resort area.) I found the website a bit difficult to navigate in terms of reserving a specific site type and number for specific dates. Might be best to email or pick up the phone to reserve. We camped at Tarry Ho Campground in a Motorhome.
