Walt's Hidden Acres, Walker, Minnesota

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $47.00
Overall Rating:

The price is the average over a 9 night stay. There is an up charge for weekend and holiday nights. The name of the park is accurate as this RV park is hidden and off the beaten path. Since there was road construction in the area, the owner of the park met us in town and we followed him to the RV park. We had to drive on a well packed, well graded dirt road a short distance. (Don't know if part of the construction was to pave the road in front of the park.) This is a difficult park to rate as it's still a work in progress. The park entry is a bit odd and wasn't thought through very well. The office is to the left as you drive up the hill. There are a few RV sites accessible from the road that leads to/by the office, but if you're not assigned one of those sites, there is no convenient place to turn around and the road is a dead end. Most of the RV sites are to the right as you enter the park, so it's best to park to the right as you enter and walk over to the office to check in. We were here for nine nights and it was obvious that the owners were still working to make the park a success. They are nice and helpful. The first bit of the entry road is asphalt but the interior roads are dirt/gravel. Sites are on gravel, but are not well compacted, and many are not very level. A few of the sites offer shade, but most do not. I believe all sites are full-hookup and are back-ins. Utilities are placed more to the back of the sites. We had to use 30 feet of sewer hose. The sewer connection in many of the sites is too high, so you have to "walk" the sewer hose in order to dump. There is a heated pool, but we didn't use it. There is a washer/dryer and was free to use at the time we were there. Although we didn't use the showers/bathrooms, they appeared new and clean. Verizon data and cell service worked well. There was no designated pet area, but there's plenty of space to walk pets. We camped at Walt's Hidden Acres in a Motorhome.

Try Portage Brewing, if you like beer. It's a family run operation with live music and really good beer. Try The Boulders if you're in the mood for an upscale meal.

Sully Creek State Park, Medora, North Dakota

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $12.00
Overall Rating:

This is dry camping at its best. We didn't reserve online, so only paid $19 per night ($12 for camping and $7 for day pass). From the previous reviews, I didn't think this campground would have a lot of traffic, but it did while we were there (nights of September 10-14). The night of the 14th, both the Whitetail Flats and Cedar campgrounds were full. Campers were parking in the horse corral area. There is a .4 mile dirt road to reach the entrance to the campground. The road had some ruts/potholes, but was manageable. There is a self pay station at the entrance to the park. The board with the list of available campsites was not updated regularly during our 5 day stay. It's probably best to check online to see what's available. However, if sites are reserved for a particular date, the park ranger puts a note on the post with the dates. Interior roads of the park are dirt/gravel and sites are either dirt/gravel or hard packed dirt/grass. Sites are flat and fairly level. There's easy access for big rigs. We stayed in the Whitetail Flats campground. Sites in the Whitetail Flats campground area are spacious. I believe site 1 is the camp host site. Sites 2-6 are clearly pull-throughs on dirt/gravel, but sites 7, 8 and 9 could be either pull-through or back-in; they're on hard packed dirt/grass. Site 10 is a pull-through on hard packed dirt/grass, although it could be a back-in for a very short RV. The campground is very quiet and peaceful, but it can be a bit dusty. Cedar campground has a 40' wide, 10' height limit, but we saw 5th wheels that were higher than 10' in that campground. Cedar campground has many trees; sites are relatively spacious there too. Little Muddy Breaks sites have horse corrals at each site. There is a vault toilet in each campground. The dump station/water fill is conveniently located and has easy access. All in all a beautiful place. We would stay again if passing through the area. We camped at Sully Creek State Park in a Motorhome.

Thompson West End Campground, Washburn, Wisconsin

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

The name of this park is Thompson's (not Thompson) West End Park. This is a first come, first served campground. Choose your site, then pay at the pay station. As GLPColorado mentioned "Some of the corners are tight", however we easily managed to get our Big Rig into a site. Suggest disconnecting toad vehicle and "scouting" sites & campground layout before taking RV in." We unhooked our tow by the pay station upon entering the campground and scouted sites. Sites are spacious; however, many sites are low in front and high(er) in back. We are a 40' motorhome. We first tried site 13, but our front wheels would have been off the ground. I believe site 13 would be fine for smaller RVs. Site 18 was much better for us and we leveled with very little difficulty. We were able to park our car horizontally in the space. There is electric only at the sites (50 & 30 amps). You can fill jugs only at the artesian well. There is one water spigot (city water) across from site 18 (pull into road opposite and it's in site 19) and one near site 29 (near dump station). You can access water spigots from the center road of the loop. There is a spigot at each end of the road. Sites are gravel/grass, although some appear to have more grass than others. Interior roads are paved. We didn't have any problems maneuvering, but the interior roads seemed a bit narrow. The roads through the park are one way, but folks were driving both directions. The road isn't wide enough for two RVs to pass each other going in opposite directions. There isn't a dedicated pet area, but there is plenty of space to walk pets. We had 8 OTA channels. We had 1 bar on Verizon. Even with our booster it was between 1 and 2 bars. We took the outer loop in order to go to the dump station. There are some trees on the outer loop that need to be trimmed for taller RVs to pass. We would stay again if passing through the area. We camped at Thompson West End Campground in a Motorhome.

Stannard Township Park, Bruce Crossing, Michigan

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $15.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed at this campground the night of August 23, 2018. A paper on the board in the campground states "water is unsafe to drink at present time." There is nothing about the water on the entrance sign to the park. This is a very convenient park for anyone traveling east/west on Michigan 28. It's just a few hundreds yards off M-28. First come, first serve campground. There is a pay station, which has envelopes and a drop box. Easy in/out for big rigs. There were 4 other RVs in the campground the night we stayed. The entrance road is paved, but the campground interior roads are gravel. Sites are on grass/gravel. We had no problem leveling. I believe there are now at least 12 sites. The first two electrical boxes do not have numbers on them. Two sites share the same pedestal, one on each side. Each site is designed to accommodate two RVs (pull in in opposite directions). All sites are pull-through. There are grills and tables. Dump station on site. We didn't check out the showers/restrooms. Sites are long and relatively level. (We are a 40' motorhome, towing a Saturn Vue, and we did not unhook the car.) There isn't a dedicated pet area, but there's plenty of space to walk pets. Verizon data and cell worked well. There were no OTA channels. There is a children's play area. We would stay again if passing through the area. We camped at Stannard Township Park in a Motorhome.

Mackinaw City Campground, Mackinaw City, Michigan

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

Check-in board at office will show assigned sites and what's available for a particular night. Fill out form, put money in envelope and drop it through the slot in door. Easy in/out for big rigs, but the sites are on grass. Ground appeared to be well compacted, we didn't sink. We have a 40' Class A diesel, with tag axle. Entry road is paved, interior roads are dirt/gravel. All sites are pull-through. In the event you can't find another campground for the night, there is an overflow lot, which is the same price as the hook up sites. Although the map on the website looks as though row 1 sites might not be pull-through, there is plenty of space between the sites and the fence in order to pull out. There is 30 amp electric and a water hook up at sites. Our breaker tripped a couple of times. Dump station easily accessible. There are no shower or laundry facilities at this park. There are a couple of out houses. The road between rows 1 and 2 had some overhanging branches. The third row might be best for larger rigs since there are no trees on row 3. Our Verizon data and cell service worked well. There is no fenced pet area, but there is plenty of space to walk pets. The campground offers food items (brats, buns, eggs, butter, water, sodas, etc.) on the honor system. Nice touch! There is a pricing chart on the refrigerator. Based on our experience, don't expect quiet hours to be honored here. We would stay again if passing through the area. We camped at Mackinaw City Campground in a Motorhome.

Steamboat Park Campground, Jenison, Michigan

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $37.00
Overall Rating:

Rate is based on weekly stay. Check the website for directions if construction on Cottonwood is still ongoing. Owners and staff were friendly upon check in. This is a relatively new park and the owners are still doing things to improve it. There's easy access for big rigs. There are two sections to the park. The first section has a paved road around the loop and the sites are gravel. The second section has a dirt loop, and I believe the sites are also gravel. There are both back-in and pull-through sites available. Most sites appeared to be fairly level. Some sites have more space between them than others. All services worked as expected. This park is great for families. There's a pool, playground, and beach access, as well as the Grand Lady cruises. The shower/restroom building is quite nice and was clean each time we went there. My husband (6'2" tall) commented that it's the first campground shower he has used where the shower head was actually high enough for him to stand under it. (That might be due to the height of the owners.) There are two washers and two dryers in the same building as the showers/restrooms. There isn't a designated pet area, but there is plenty of space to walk pets. There were numerous OTA channels. Verizon data and cell worked well. We would stay again if passing through the area. We camped at Steamboat Park Campground in a Motorhome.

Hy-Land Court RV Park, Ellison Bay, Wisconsin

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

Easy access for big rigs. Note: There is more than one entry to the park. We were met by a friendly couple as we drove in, given our site information, and asked to get settled and then return to pay for our stay. They don't accept credit cards, cash/check only. We were here 18 days and were sad to leave. Door County is a special place. This is a large park with a number of seasonal, maybe permanent residents. All sites that we saw were well maintained and folks were friendly. There are a lot of mature trees in the "main" section of the campground. As others have mentioned, there is a newer section of the campground that has no trees and offers no privacy between sites. There are both pull-through and back-in sites available. Sites are gravel. Interior roads were easy to navigate, even with our car in tow. The utilities at our site were perfectly placed for class A motor homes, and they worked as expected. At the time of our stay, there was no cable in the newer section, but it appeared as though they were working on supplying it to the newer section. We had 4 OTA PBS channels. There was no designated pet area, but there was plenty of open green space to walk pets. Verizon cell service was hit and miss during our time in Door County. We camped at Hy-Land Court RV Park in a Motorhome.

Poncho's Pond RV Park, Ludington, Michigan

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $52.00
Overall Rating:

This is a huge and beautifully landscaped park, probably the prettiest we've ever seen in our 6 years of full-time traveling. There's easy access for big rigs into the park, but we felt the interior roads were a bit narrow. The tow had been unhooked prior to being escorted to the site. Interior roads are asphalt and were in great condition. We were there only one night as we were passing through so we didn't check out any of the facilities. Utilities worked well. Cable is available. Sites were nicely spaced, some with quite a bit of privacy. There was a fire pit and a table. At our site, the fire pit was recessed into the ground, so just make note of where that's located in the event you have to step outside once it's dark. This park has almost every amenity anyone would be seeking. The only thing lacking was a designated pet area. Verizon data and cell service worked well. We camped at Poncho's Pond RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tom's Campground, Dodgeville, Wisconsin

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $31.00
Overall Rating:

The owner suggested, if approaching from the south (Dubuque), take the County Road BB exit, not County Road Y as shown on Google maps. Country Road Y isn't bad but, by taking BB, you stay on the interstate longer which is a nicer road and you're practically at Tom's Campground when you reach the end of BB. Upon arrival, a staff member welcomed us to the park. He takes care of the park, is friendly, and is a wealth of information. We loved all the green space at this park and the views were great. We were on the hill, where the 50 amp sites are located, and it was peaceful and relaxing. There are eight 50 amp sites on the hill. It would be very close quarters if all of those sites were full. The 50 amp sites are designed so that the utilities are centered between two RVs. One RV pulls in facing one direction and the neighboring RV faces the opposite direction. There are a lot of 30 amp sites too, which appeared to be hard packed dirt and/or grass, and tent sites. The interior roads are asphalt. The 50 amp sites are on a combination of hard packed dirt/gravel/grass. We needed blocks to level. Water and electric hookups were conveniently placed. There is no sewer at the sites, but there is a dump station on the premises. There are lots of mature trees. Some did provide shade, but there weren't any that interfered with the sites. There is a picnic table at each site, and one fire pit for each two sites. Trash and recycle bins were nearby. There were about 25 OTA channels. There is park wifi that currently works if you're in one of the hill sites, but the owner is working on getting wifi to the other areas of the park. Restrooms/showers were dated, but clean. The showers cost 25 cents for about 7-8 minutes. We would return to this park if passing through the area. We camped at Tom's Campground in a Motorhome.

Missouri Valley City Park, Missouri Valley, Iowa

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $15.00
Overall Rating:

This is a first come/first served park. In addition to being the city park, it also serves as the Harrison County Fairgrounds. There is a self pay station near the large covered picnic shelter. There's easy access for large rigs. The interior roads are asphalt. Upon entering the park, we weren't sure where to park, but chose to park alongside the white fence near the electric boxes since that area was mostly gravel. The electric box was on the other side of the fence. We had 50 amp service. There were no site numbers or numbers on the electric boxes that we saw. There are water faucets conveniently placed along the fence line, but not near the electric. There were no picnic tables or fire pits. There is a grassy area where I believe you can park also, but there was a "no parking" sign along that strip of grass the night we stayed. Although they were available, we didn't use the restrooms/showers or the dump station. There's no fenced pet area, but there's ample space to walk pets. There is a playground and a train for children. Verizon data and cell worked fine. There were trains that passed by, but they didn't bother us. We would stay again if passing through the area. We camped at Missouri Valley City Park in a Motorhome.

Ute Lake State Park, Logan, New Mexico

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

Easy access for any size rig. There are several loops in the park. When I called before arrival to ask about first come/first serve, I was told that only one loop (Yucca) was open and that was the best loop for accommodating larger rigs. Other loops opened during our 9 day stay in early April. We received a warm welcome when I called the visitor center after getting settled. There are three rows of pull-through sites in the Yucca loop, with ample spacing between each. During our time at this park, certain sites in the Yucca loop were designated as first come/first serve (don't know if that's always the case). Those first come/first serve sites all faced the lake and were some of the prime sites in the park. All sites are pull-through, long and level, and would accommodate any size RV. Water is available at each site. Some sites have 50 amp service, some sites have 30 amp service. There is a dump station near the visitor center. There were ten or so OTA channels. I couldn't use my iPhone 5s (iPhone 6 was fine) for making calls while staying here. Verizon data service was slow at times. The main interior road is asphalt, sites are gravel, although some sites have a bit less gravel than others. There is a nice concrete patio with picnic table at each site. Some of the patios have two brick sides, some are totally exposed. There is a fire ring and grill at each site. It was really windy during the days we were there. As others have mentioned, there are a ton of stickees/burrs, so try to keep your pets on the gravel, even though you'll most likely encounter them on the gravel too. There is plenty of space to walk pets. We would stay again, but we would buy shoes for our dog first! We camped at Ute Lake State Park in a Motorhome.

Ellis Lakeside Campground, Ellis, Kansas

Date of Stay: April, 2018 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

$20 in season, $15 off season. You can pay at the police station, city hall or at the self pay station. (NOTE: The envelopes and self pay receipts are under the lid of the rectangular sign to the right of the self pay station. It clearly states ENVELOPES and SELF PAY RECEIPT - just lift the lid.) Nice park, easy access to long pull-through sites. You pull in in alternating directions for the services to be properly placed. There are large trees at the front and back of each site, but they didn't interfere with our entry or exit. The odd numbered sites face the large grassy field, the even numbered sites face the lake. With our RV roughly centered in the site, we needed about 28' of hose to reach the water faucet. Sites 1 and 2 have 30 amp receptacles. Sites 3 and 4 have 30 and 50 amp receptacles. Sites 5 and 6 have 30 and 50 amp receptacles. Site 7 is a handicapped space with 30 amp electric. Site 8 has 50 amp. Sites 9 through 14 have 30 amp receptacles. There are no sewer hookups at the sites, but there is a dump station by the restrooms/showers near site 7. Most sites had a picnic table and a pedestal grill. I didn't visit the restroom/showers for the women, but my husband reported that the restroom/showers for the men were some of the nicest/cleanest he'd ever seen in an RV park. He also liked that the shower faucet is one you turn on and then off when you're finished, not the type you have to keep pressing every few seconds. There were a few OTA channels. Verizon cell and data service worked well. We would stay again if passing through the area. We camped at Ellis Lakeside Campground in a Motorhome.

Santa Rosa Lake State Park, Santa Rosa, New Mexico

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

It appears that a lot of money has been put into developing this park, but it's certainly not being used to its potential. The road leading to Rocky Point Campground is windy. The website stated first come/first serve, but that wasn't the case when we were there in late March. If you arrive and a site is open for that particular night, you can have it that night, but you have to move along or change sites the following day if that site is reserved for the next night. So, not truly first come/first serve. Site numbers are located on the picnic table in Loop A. Loop A was the only open loop for the one night we were there. The camp host was awesome! Some sites have 30 amp and some have 50 amp electric, water is available from spigots located throughout the park, and there is a dump station. There is a covered picnic table with grill at each site; however, no fires were allowed during the time we were there. Interior roads are asphalt, as are sites. We thought the road in loop A was a bit narrow for our 40' motor home, but we managed. Some sites are more level than others. Verizon data and cell service were excellent, but we do have a booster. There was no hot water in the men's shower room. The sign stating "hot water heater not functioning" appeared to have been there quite a while. Loop B wasn't open during the time we were there, but is dry camping. Maybe that is the loop that is intended to be first come/first serve? Those sites have a covered picnic table with grill. There are a variety of sites, short/long, pull-through/backin, level/unlevel. There is another camping area that was closed too. We wouldn't stay here again. We camped at Santa Rosa Lake State Park in a Motorhome.

Desert Paradise Mobile Home & RV Village, Alamogordo, New Mexico

Date of Stay: March, 2018 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

This is a self registering park. I called the day I wanted to arrive and asked about availability. There is a board that has pricing and instructions for payment just after entering the park. Access is easy, although you do have to make a U-turn if you're heading east on 70 (from the dunes), but it's an easy U-turn, even for large rigs. The road leading to the park is asphalt as is the main interior. Sites are on gravel/hard packed dirt. Sites are long and relatively level, and will accommodate any size RV. There are both back-ins and pull-throughs. The pull-through sites are double, allowing one RV to pull in facing one direction and the adjacent RV to pull in facing the opposite direction. The sites are angled. There is no shade. There were a few picnic tables around, but I don't believe every site has one. Sites offer full hookups with 50/30/20 amp service at each site. Services worked as expected, but our electric did seem a bit abnormal the day we left. There appear to be a lot of permanents, but the rigs are, for the most part, in nice shape and the park is nicely maintained. There is a laundry room, restroom, and club house. Laundry room was clean when I looked in it; there was no change machine. I didn't check out the restroom or club house. Verizon data and cell worked well. There was an area to walk pets, but no designated enclosed area. We would stay again if passing through the area. We camped at Desert Paradise Mobile Home & RV Village in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

There is a Shell station almost directly across the street from the park. There are separate diesel pumps and the area is easy to navigate for larger rigs.
