Douglas KOA, Douglas, Wyoming

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $33.00
Overall Rating:      

We can't say enough about how good this place is. It shows exemplary pride in the cleanliness, hospitality and landscaping care that they apply. This is the best KOA that we've used. The host was extremely helpful and the coffee shop on-site is a real bonus. We camped at Douglas KOA in a Motorhome.

Ortona South COE, Moore Haven, Florida

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

Well maintained and pleasant location. Level concrete pads; but be aware that sites 46 and 45 are 'side by side' and share very tight space on a single concrete pad. One dangerous feature of finding your way here in the dark is the turn from Route 80 to Dalton Lane: construction barrels are poorly laid out so the entry is difficult to see. Despite searching in the darkness for the turn, we overran the entry because to make the turn would have caused the car behind us, driven by an impatient driver, to collide with us. We camped at Ortona South COE in a Motorhome.

Collier-Seminole State Park, Naples, Florida

Date of Stay: January, 2014 - $24.00
Overall Rating:      

Crowded campground with poor site definition; rotting trash in overflowing dumpsters smelled - don't get a site hear them! After rain, the sites were muddy and the shady, damp setting was perfect for mosquitoes so watch out for West Nile. We were told that renovations are coming, but don't quite know when. They are long overdue. This is a campground quite atypical for Florida and management would do well to look at other locations for guidance. We may reappraise after renovations are completed. We camped at Collier-Seminole State Park in a Motorhome.

Dr. Julian G. Bruce St. George Island State Park, Saint George Island, Florida

Date of Stay: February, 2013 - $24.00
Overall Rating:      

Nice park. Great beaches nearby. Quiet walks and great biking is available. We've camped here several times. Since we experienced near-misses by two tornadoes in 24 hours, a weather issue that the park cannot control or predict, we were concerned about the lack of facilities which would provide safe haven under such circumstances. We camped at Dr. Julian G. Bruce St. George Island State Park in a Motorhome.

Manatee Springs State Park, Chiefland, Florida

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

It was unusual, to say the least, to see SCUBA divers plunking their way through the woods in full gear as they headed for diving in the turquoise spring water. The forested walking trails were delightful and offered a lovely view of basking turtles in the river. Our pull-through site was level and comfortable, making it easy to stay connected for an early morning departure. Restroom/showers were adequate. The park had more to offer than we could enjoy on our one-night stay. We'll return here to check it out more carefully. We camped at Manatee Springs State Park in a Motorhome.

John Prince Park Campground, Palm Springs, Florida

Date of Stay: January, 2013 - $28.00
Overall Rating:      

Short-term campers like us are assigned sites that are by the lake and not level. Long term campers dominate this park as it appears to be a snowbird site for Quebec and Ontario residents with ample accommodation for the two major Canadian languages. Washrooms and showers are the smallest we've ever seen and lack the attention and renovation seen at so many wonderful Florida parks. The park is run by attendants with a detached demeanor and contrasts with the hospitable welcome we received at other Florida park. We camped at John Prince Park Campground in a Motorhome.

South Bay RV Campground, South Bay, Florida

Date of Stay: January, 2013 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

What great hospitality! The park staff could not be nicer. This park was renovated after hurricane damage and is fully equipped. We even had propane "delivery" by a local service provider. The park 'clubs' can keep you busy if you're so inclined. Tours of the local sugar cane and orange industries are good value. The area is economically not too prosperous but the region is hospitable and pleasant. Occasional smoke from cane field burns should not alarm but are likely. Both coasts are only a short drive away. Boating access to the lake is readily available. We camped at South Bay RV Campground in a Motorhome.

Curry Hammock State Park, Marathon, Florida

Date of Stay: January, 2013 - $43.00
Overall Rating:      

There are no bad sites in this small park. Certainly, the ocean-front sites are lovely but we have no problem booking anywhere here (already booked for next year - this is a high-demand park). The nearby beach is small and subscribes to conservation principles which keep detritis on the sand. The water is calm because of an offshore reef which absorbs the Atlantic wave action. Keep an eye out for Man-O-Wars, however. Sunsets/sunrises can be spectacular! We camped at Curry Hammock State Park in a Motorhome.

Guadalupe River State Park (GRSP), Spring Branch, Texas

Date of Stay: January, 2013 - $17.00
Overall Rating:      

Quiet campsite (winter kept everyone indoors) with a weekend park tour that's really great! The Guadalupe River is nearby and worth the river walk. It's convenient to San Antonio if you're looking for city life. Laundry facilities, however are scarce. Small communities nearby are quaint and worth the visit. One problem which cost us dearly (the $500 deductible on our insurance) was an electrical malfunction at our site. Our in-line tester nicely shut down the power before too much damage was done but we lost an $800 TV and required $225 repairs on our water heater. We reported the problem to the rangers, were advised to move (we did) but were disappointed to see that another camper was on the site a day later during a holiday week when repairs were likely not available. Unfortunately, the site number is not in my reservation record (it's assigned when you enter and I think it was 54) so I cannot provide accurate specifics about the problem location. I just hope they've fixed it-it was an expensive stay! We camped at Guadalupe River State Park (GRSP) in a Motorhome.

Potters Creek Park COE, Canyon Lake, Texas

Date of Stay: January, 2013 - $12.00
Overall Rating:      

This was a real find! The price shown includes a 50% discount for our interagency pass but does not include the $10 booking fee. The hosts could not have been nicer, keeping us apprised of the closing (for wildlife control) of parts of the park and accommodating a requested change in dates with no difficulty. Our site (42) was right by the lake with a spectacular view of sunsets and waterfowl. We were there shortly after New Year's and the hosts had kept the festive decorations in the immaculate washrooms. It was so homey! One thing to keep in mind is that onsite servicing is discouraged but can be negotiated in an emergency (as we found). There are many longterm campers here and stays can be extended if you provide enough warning time. We found that the park entrance 'gatekeepers' varied in temperament tremendously, one couple clearly being very accommodating and another person quite rigid. Negotiating success might depend on who is on duty. We camped at Potters Creek Park COE in a Motorhome.

Sam Houston Jones State Park, Lake Charles, Louisiana

Date of Stay: November, 2012 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

Even for a quick overnight, we found their site was poor. It was not level, offered no privacy and was next to a "portable" that served as the washroom/shower. The path to the washroom was muddy so it's not surprising that the it was difficult to keep the washroom floor clean. Part of the park has better sites (our friends stayed there) but it's not the best campground experience for sure despite a lovely scenic forest setting nearby. We camped at Sam Houston Jones State Park in a Motorhome.

Patapsco Valley State Park - Hollofield Area, Ellicott City, Maryland

Date of Stay: June, 2012 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

We really enjoyed the setting, the size of the site (we were on 403 with our 31 foot rig, towing a full size car). The showers and bathrooms were convenient but lots of insects took refuge there, attracted by the light and the open doors. Water supply was centralized and of great quality. Sites were tidy and well-tended. Their greatest drawback is the poor advisory signage for those driving a vehicle over 11 feet tall. Signs are placed on Route 40, causing all kinds of confusion even to those who are not using the camp. Simply put, if you drive something taller than 11 feet and are UNABLE TO BACK UP, DO NOT enter the park by way of WESTBOUND Route 40. Make your entrance by way of the EASTBOUND route 40. Even using that entrance, DO NOT (under any circumstances) drive beyond the check-in hut. If you plan to arrive late, PHONE ahead to make sure someone can open the gate for you. I've filed my concerns with the State Park service but they're going to have to work with the MD DOT to get this fixed and I'm betting this is not going to happen soon. We camped at Patapsco Valley State Park - Hollofield Area in a Motorhome.

Jordan Lake SRA / Poplar Point Campground, Apex, North Carolina

Date of Stay: April, 2012 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

Wonderful setting in the woods by the very large lake. Closing comfort stations four days a week seems odd. Showers are on timers (30 seconds each "push" and single stream; stalls have no place to hold clothing so showers could stand some work. Main concern is being locked in from 8 PM to 8 AM and only allowed to have gate opened if there's an emergency. This applies to visitors. It also applies to you if you don't make it back in time...park your car outside the park and walk in is your only option. We camped at Jordan Lake SRA / Poplar Point Campground in a Motorhome.
