Buckeye Lake / Columbus East KOA, Buckeye Lake, Ohio

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $71.00
Overall Rating:      

We are not people who hand out excellent reviews lightly. We stayed in the most expensive site in the park and in our life. It was totally worth it here. This is one of the nicest parks in the KOA chain. This KOA is well managed, beautiful, and customer centered. They have an abundance of very busy friendly employees constantly picking up garbage, standing guard, changing out flowers, helping guests, or coordinating games or events for children. They have several play areas from outside fields, to covered play areas, to a large barn where breakfast buffet is served. Showers and restrooms are well placed in at least three different areas. The laundry was spotless. Guests have their choice of shaded camp sites or satellite view. Fire rings were on most sites and wood was available with starter kits. The park has two dog parks. One is smaller and one hundred yards away is a larger dog park. Each has an abundant supply of doggy bags. Kids can swim in the pool, ride the real fire engine around the park, ride all size tricycles, participate in various events, or bounce on a safe trampoline type "mound" which keeps the bounce lower and safer. The owners and management are absolutely "hands on". They can be seen constantly riding around the park, standing guard at the entrance, or supervising registration or the well-stocked store. It appears to be an older park which has been updated all the way. The sites and roads are gravel. Most sites are virtually level. The pull throughs range from about 70 feet to 90 feet or so. There are many camping cabins ranging from a small family or couple size to a two floor cabin. They can accommodate groups in the cabins, tents, or RV sites. A group of 15 families with 46 kids were visiting during our stay. This group stayed in some of the cabins. We landed here with one night's reservation. Upon our Friday departure we desperately needed an engine repair. The necessary part was not r. We camped at Buckeye Lake / Columbus East KOA in a Motorhome.

Columbus parks, zoo, museums is not far away and hiking trails are plentiful in the area. Many people are into boating of various types who stay here.

Anthony/El Paso West KOA (formerly American RV & Marine Resort & Rally, Anthony, Texas

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $41.00
Overall Rating:      

The park is a gravel street and gravel site park. The sites are level and have full hookups including 3 different dump locations on each site. They have a new dog park and children play area. Both of these areas are kept watered and have grass. The park has a small house trailer which serves as an office, laundry (4 washers and 4 dryers), and small shower house with two rooms -- each room with a toilet and shower. The showers have hard to regulate heat controls and no mat or disposable paper mat as in days past. The park has containers for doggy bags at several places but often had no bags in them. You're supposed to dump your garbage into a dumpster in one corner of the park. It was way overloaded when we were there and piled high with stinking garbage in the heat. For 41 dollars a night the park should know better than to cheap it out with crappy garbage service, few dog bags, and crappy water temp controls. They need more than two showers for a park this size. The park is well located between Las Cruces, NM and El Paso but is over priced. We camped at Anthony/El Paso West KOA (formerly American RV & Marine Resort & Rally in a Motorhome.

Don't come here if you want a "resort" for 41 dollar per. It is dusty and usually windy. The staff is very helpful! Bring your own plastic bags for your dog. There are several longer term workers in the area who live in the park. They were all very responsible, quiet, and friendly every time we came. Most sites were pull through except along the perimeter.

Cave Country RV Campground, Cave City, Kentucky

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $34.00

Excellent park with good wifi, clean showers/bathrooms, and level sites. The dog park was very nice and a fairly large area capable of handling a few larger dogs at full run. We camped at Cave Country RV Campground in a Motorhome.

Sunrise RV Park, Texarkana, Arkansas

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

The park was poorly maintained. The sites were not labeled well and the other rv's were somewhat difficult to get around. The hookup areas were torn up pretty well from being hit and abused in various ways. Many of the electric pedestals needed to be replaced. The restrooms were clean and well maintained compared to the rest of the park. We camped at Sunrise RV Park in a Motorhome.

Bar J Hitchin Post RV, Sweetwater, Texas

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $34.00
Overall Rating:      

The park sits on a slight hill so we were disappointed at first. We went in and talked to the lady at the desk. She was very helpful and eager to assist in any way. We didn't think the sites were long enough or level enough or would have a satellite view. We were wrong. The sites were very level and could take our 40 ft motor home plus tow car easily. There are two truck stops within walking distance, a TA and Loves so it's ideal for end of day refueling. The restrooms were attractive and clean. The office area serves as a rec room also with couches, a large tv, and pool table. Sweetwater, as anyone can tell you is home to the "Rattle Snake" roundup, a women's air museum, and the windmill capital of the world. All in all this was a very pleasant stop. We camped at Bar J Hitchin Post RV in a Motorhome.

Sunrise RV Park, Texarkana, Arkansas

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $28.00
Overall Rating:      

This park is relatively new but is mostly a worker campground right now. It keeps a few sites open for overnight camping and we had trouble trying to get into the site we were assigned. The overnight guests receive the farthest from the showers sites. If you have to have a place to stay you can go here but I can't recommend it. We camped at Sunrise RV Park in a Motorhome.

Cave Country RV Campground, Cave City, Kentucky

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

This park is located north of Bowling Green, Kentucky on I-65. The campground is about a quarter mile from restaurants and gas stations but we stop for diesel either north or south of the exit.
The RV park is level and quiet. Train whistles are heard through the night. The showers and bathrooms were spotless and the sites were very level although all gravel. They have a large fenced in area for a dog park. It was very clean and they had bags for your use in a box. The majority of sites are pull through. We camped at Cave Country RV Campground in a Motorhome.

Willow Tree Resort and Campground, Longs, South Carolina

Date of Stay: August, 2012 - $53.00
Overall Rating:      

The sites were very level and very large. All roads and sites were paved and in good shape. The resort also has several nice cabins. The pool and hot tub were well maintained and very clean. They had nature trails and a very large pond with paddle boats. This resort was nice. However, if cable is important, or if you need cell phone service you may be out of luck. The internet service "at the site" was horrible if not non-existent. The staff said that we could get wi-fi at the office, but we didn't test that option. We had trouble with our satellite service and had to call the provider. Our cell phones were useless. The resort is about three miles off Route 9. The roads into the park are fairly narrow. Gas and diesel are available within three miles, and restaurants are only a few miles away. Overall the resort was nice, but we thought over priced. Myrtle Beach RV parks with far more amenities are available for much less. We camped at Willow Tree Resort and Campground in a Motorhome.

Oasis RV Resort, Amarillo, Texas

Date of Stay: May, 2012 - $33.00
Overall Rating:      

The park is just off I-40 just pass a Pilot or Loves truck stop convenient for fuel. We've stayed here since its inception as one of the Diamonds of I-40. The park has paved roads, extremely level concrete pads, and excellent utilities including good variety cable. The Wi-Fi was no better than weak anywhere and generally lousy unless you walk or drive to the office to use the main antenna where it's acceptable. The showers and bathrooms are scattered throughout the park, are clean, and serve a triple purpose of tornado shelter and laundry. There is a restaurant in the office which has good ribs and other food in season and some fast foods out of season. We camped at Oasis RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Tucson / Lazydays KOA, Tucson, Arizona

Date of Stay: May, 2012 - $33.00
Overall Rating:      

We've stayed here for many years. It is directly off I-10 and near I-19. This park used to be Beaudry's RV Resort until one or two years ago. The park has paved roads and very level gravel pull-throughs (not at all dusty). There are two swimming pools, hot tub, exercise facility,laundry, restaurant, Camping World, RV sales, and RV repair facility on premises. The price was a bit high given that we were out of season. Wi-Fi was horrible, cable service could have had more channels. Although it was a very nice campground with many amenities, the terrible Wi-Fi and lack of cable options should be improved for the price paid. It has the potential to one of the nicest RV parks in the west. We camped at Tucson / Lazydays KOA in a Motorhome.

Hacienda RV Resort, Las Cruces, New Mexico

We've stayed here twice. It is located directly off I-10 and near the Old City of Mesilla where some of the best restaurants and festivals are. The campground had paved roads and was well laid out, very level, and groomed pull through sites. All utilities including cable were super. We didn't ask about a pool but noted a hot tub. The showers were private with locking doors and immaculate. We paid a higher than normal rate to come here. We camped at Hacienda RV Resort in a Motorhome.

High Desert RV Park, Albuquerque, New Mexico

Date of Stay: May, 2012 - $18.00
Overall Rating:      

We've stayed here many years. We prefer this park to the others in the area based upon price and helpfulness. Park is owned by very nice helpful people. It has paved roads and gravel pull throughs. Note, there is no cable but air reception is super good and clear line of site for satellite receivers. It can be a little difficult to level out since many sites are a bit slanted to the left. Wi-Fi is not free. The lack of of amenities is more than made up for by the super good price. The campground sits on a high hill probably five miles west of Albuquerque and runs about $125 a week plus electric. Most, if not all, campgrounds in Albuquerque can have strong winds. We camped at High Desert RV Park in a Motorhome.

Carlsbad KOA, Carlsbad, New Mexico

Date of Stay: May, 2012 - $45.00
Overall Rating:      

We've stayed here several times. Of the four or more campgrounds in and around Carlsbad, this is the most acceptable. The park and facilities are clean. The sites are gravel but very level with good power and water. The park is well outside Carlsbad (about 15 miles or so) and twice that far or more to the Carlsbad Caverns. The price is high for what we got. The wi-fi was marginal, and we lost connection frequently. For 45 dollars per night we expect more variety and selections on the cable. But, in past years, we have stayed at two of the other campgrounds, and they are not competition for this KOA. Keep in mind this area and many others in New Mexico are subjected to very high winds and epic dust storms which can ruin your campsite and awnings. We camped at Carlsbad KOA in a Motorhome.

Pirateland Family Campground, Myrtle Beach, South Carolina

Date of Stay: April, 2012 - $50.00
Overall Rating:      

We've been staying here for years. The park has progressively allowed more and more violations of policies. We had multiple incidents with unleashed dogs. The guards disregarded this problem. We had our dogs with us and kept them on leashes. Management prohibits multiple RV's from camping on the same site. This was permitted on our visit. Fires were not uncommon on campsites although they were not supposed to be permitted. All of us have propane tanks. This is a relatively nice park. It is disappointing that a few people can ruin stays for us all. We camped at Pirateland Family Campground in a Motorhome.
