Rock Island State Park, Rock Island, Tennessee

Date of Stay: October, 2018 - $27.00
Overall Rating:

Very nice park, reasonable cost per nite, on the smallish side, but I like that. Nice clean RR & showers. Heard stories that showers did not have HOT water, but I did not experience that fact. Like the site pads, large space for camper & tow vehicle. Good space between sites where we camped, but others were closer. Lots to do, especially hiking. Little difficult for biking, but kids were doing that in our loop. Quiet during the evening, great for star watching. We camped at Rock Island State Park in a Tent Trailer.

Standing Stone State Park, Hilham, Tennessee

Date of Stay: October, 2018 - $28.00
Overall Rating:

Used this park as an over-nite. Small park, with water & electric at the site. Some sites would be difficult to level, but ours was not. Good space between each site. Hilly terraine around the campground. If rainy, some sites would be washed out. I personally don't care for the stone based sites, but it worked for one night. Can't speak for WIFI or TV because I don't go camping for those things. RR were convenient and clean, showers had good water pressure and were clean. We camped at Standing Stone State Park in a Tent Trailer.

Tahquamenon Falls State Park, Paradise, Michigan

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

This was a good sp. Sand/dirt made the RR hard for the employees to keep the floors clean. Rainy weather did not help. We visited the upper/lower falls and the ship wreck museum. All interesting. We camped at Tahquamenon Falls State Park in a Tent Trailer.

We enjoyed our stay here. The sites were level, but cramped. (typical MI state park) The R/R-S were good and kept clean. Did some hiking. We camped at Straits State Park in a Tent Trailer.

P.H. Hoeft State Park, Rogers City, Michigan

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

I don't have the same recommendations for this park as others do. Our visit was not good. Sand everywhere including the rest rooms/showers. The power towers were some distance from our pop-up, therefore requiring two extension cords. The sites were on top of each other, very cramped. We camped at P.H. Hoeft State Park in a Tent Trailer.

Maumee Bay State Park, Oregon, Ohio

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $14.00
Overall Rating:

This was a return visit. And again the park did not disappoint. If I have a negative about this park, it's the lack of shade. We managed to find a rather large tree that blocked the afternoon sun. We camped at Maumee Bay State Park in a Tent Trailer.

Amish Country Campsites, Winesburg, Ohio

Date of Stay: April, 2018 - $29.00
Overall Rating:

Nothing special about this CG. Several construction workers stayed on site, but they really didn't other campers. The RR were clean, however, the construction workers left their shower equipment in the stalls. Road noise during the day, but quiet after dark. We visited the entire county, so CG was centrally located. Shady site, but weather was not a factor. We camped at Amish Country Campsites in a Tent Trailer.

Mohican State Park, Loudonville, Ohio

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $15.00
Overall Rating:

We stay here when visiting Holmes County. Didn't have reservations, but found a site for 3 nights. Not the best, but not the worst either. If it had rained, the site would have been under water. Did some bike riding around park, but generally just relaxed. The park was BUSY and I think full to capacity all nights. Friendly staff, the RR were cleaned at least twice daily. Tubing was in full swing even though it was unseasonably cool. Very family oriented, but was quiet after sundown. We enjoy camping at this SP. We camped at Mohican State Park in a Tent Trailer.

Versailles State Park, Versailles, Indiana

Date of Stay: October, 2016 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

Stayed for 4 nights while visiting family in the area. Always stay at this park when visiting in this location.

Stayed in "C" loop. The restrooms were clean, but they are starting to show their age. Don't like the gang shower, but there is a single available.

This is a pretty park which is well maintained. New picnic tables at our site. Fire wood is available from the campground host. We didn't buy wood therefore I don't know the cost. Hiking trails are close to the campground. There is a lake for kayaks or canoes. Camp store is close to the lake. Saw lots of horse trailers, and they can use trails designed for the horses.

I'm not used to paying an entrance fee to the park, and it's in addition to the camping fee. $9.00 entrance fee for out of state people.

Versailles is close if groceries or other supplies are needed. We camped at Versailles State Park in a Tent Trailer.

Bar S RV Park, Milan, New Mexico

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

Not much to add that the previous comments covered. The staff was accommodating and helpful. The laundry was located in the office area, so at seven the office closed, therefore the laundry did also.

The road surface inside the park is gravel, therefore, there is dust kicked up when anyone enters or leaves.

A suggestion for management...... make the restrooms unisex. That would (imo) help the flow.

The road (interstate) and train (BNSE) noise is bad because you are wedged between both.

This was just an over nite, so I'll probably not return. We camped at Bar S RV Park in a Tent Trailer.

Zion River Resort RV Park & Campground, Virgin, Utah

Date of Stay: September, 2015 - $49.00
Overall Rating:

I agree with most of the comments prior to mine. I want to mention that I thought the RR/Shower was not the best. They were dated and needed to be upgraded. The rooms were limited and available at two different locations. If you were the first to use the shower it was fine, but second and beyond had a very wet floor. The shower time was limited to seven minutes and then not available for another five minutes. (conserving water) We camped at Zion River Resort RV Park & Campground in a Tent Trailer.

Good for NP visits at Zion and Bryce.

We used this CG for visits to several NP's, but due to a large rock slide they had Rte 9 closed so the east entrance at Zion was not available.
