Sugar Mill RV Park, Thomasville, Georgia

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

Very hospitable, caring owner. We had a breakdown, so our arrival was delayed by 3 days but they kept a spot open for us. Think "laid back" Southern hospitality that's caring and responsive. Park full of trees, rustic charm. Don't worry about lack of well-defined parking spots; ground is level & you feel like you're nestled in the pines. Almost all spots are back-ins; we needed a pull-through so she put us in one that allows you to pull through another space onto the park road if there's no one else parked opposite you. Bathrooms have private, lockable toilet/shower combos (very convenient). Some have tubs. Totally enjoyable place to camp. The spaces might be a bit close together, but may be a function of the spaces not being specifically defined. It's more true campground than the usual concrete pads allow you to experience. Will gladly stay here again. Only one drawback - WiFi badly needs boosters & speed upgrade. Hard to keep an internet signal. Had to hot-spot from my cell phone. We camped at Sugar Mill RV Park in a Motorhome.

Camp Mi Casa on the Route RV Park, Carthage, Missouri

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

Our second stay at this park. Owner is very nice. Spots are gravel, but generally pretty level. Look closely and you'll find amenities most parks don't have at this price point: swimming pool, tennis court, spacious and spotless bathhouse/laundry. Even if you don't use it, it's worth a look - the concrete floor is a work of art with colors swirled throughout. Wifi is weak. One caution: If you arrive after dark like we did, be careful when walking pets. what looks like an interior park road leading to the highway is actually a well-traveled road. Walking pets on it could be extremely dangerous. Two large fire rings suitable for group bonfires are a nice touch. We camped at Camp Mi Casa on the Route RV Park in a Motorhome.

Robidoux RV Park, Gering, Nebraska

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

We'll gladly stay here again. City-owned. Bluffs visible from park. Very nice staff. Beautiful park, manicured lawns, no trash. Generous spacing between spots, although the pads might be considered just wide enough for a motor home. We were pulling a 20 foot trailer, so we took up all but about 3 feet of the pull-through space (total length RV + trailer = 55'). On slight upslope, so guide to left edge of concrete pad to minimize height of last step to ground (several inches from pad top to ground. All the sites we saw had metal picnic tables on a separate concrete pad. Cable TV instructions say 20 amp circuit has to be on for about 20 minutes for cable to work. If staying Oct-Mar, check to see if you can hook up to water. We weren't told, so our late arrival meant no water. They were telling people not to hook up to water hydrants after 8:00 because of possible freezes. Water hydrants are not wrapped with heat tape. When I mentioned that unexpected surprise, the park staffer tried to give us back half of what we'd paid because she felt bad for our inconvenience. That's integrity! We didn't use their cable service this trip, but it's available (costs $3 per night) and is a bit convoluted. Have to get a remote from the office and follow their checklist. Interior roads are a bit narrow but in very good shape. Most open space I've seen for dog walking in an RV park. We offloaded our car from our trailer, but had to park alongside the trailer on the grass to be safely off the park road. We camped at Robidoux RV Park in a Motorhome.

Osage Prairie RV Park, Nevada, Missouri

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

One of our favorite parks; we've stayed here several times on trips to and from the south-central US. We're greeted like old friends every time and we feel the same way about the owners. Immaculate park, lots of pull-through spaces, wonderful pet area. Easy access onto I-49. Top notch operation with a rustic cowboy flair. Toilet doors latch by hooking a knotted rope through an antler on the wall. Bathhouse doors have a counterweight system to keep them closed. We camped at Osage Prairie RV Park in a Motorhome.

Pecan Grove RV Park, Lake Village, Arkansas

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

Our preferred stopping point when returning home from visiting friends in Mississippi. Staff are always pleasant and accommodating. Park is quiet, spots are level and all pull-throughs with comfortable distance between parking spots. WiFi reception used to be an issue here, but they've got boosters installed throughout the park. Our only criticism is that maintenance and improvements don't get done in a timely manner. We stopped here in January and were told they had the WiFi boosters and just hadn't installed them. When we booked our reservation, we were told the boosters had just been installed. The bath house door knob fell off in my wife's hand in January; it still hasn't been replaced. Caution: if you're pulling a trailer or toad, recommend asking for a spot on the first, second, or fourth row. We were in the third row and the turn to the right when leaving puts you really close to a utility tower. We camped at Pecan Grove RV Park in a Motorhome.

Next door to the park is a convenience store that also sells ice and diesel. If you're going west or north on departure, you'll have to cross a four-lane road to fuel up. If going east, suggest you fuel up before the park so you're ready to go in the morning.

Magnolia RV Park Resort, Vicksburg, Mississippi

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

Park has lots of amenities and nice staff, but it needs to be on a larger acreage; the pads are way too close together (our 2' sl) and the roads are not wide enough to allow parking and motorhome travel. On departure, we had to ask two residents to move their vehicles so we could get our motorhome through the narrow road. Very nice fenced dog run, clean bath facilities, nice water feature. Park's web site leads you to believe it's near a Wal-Mart and an easy access to I-20; don't believe everything you read. The Wal-Mart and restaurants are near the freeway exit, but the park is way down a very narrow winding road, so it's not easy access to I-20. Turning radius into and out of the park is very tight. WiFi exists, but signal is very weak and spotty. Only thing we could do is download email. Otherwise, we'd lose signal and have to reconnect. We camped at Magnolia RV Park Resort in a Motorhome.

Twin Coves Park, Flower Mound, Texas

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $32.00
Overall Rating:

Great park. You don't expect a city-run RV park to be so full of activities and run like a 5-star park. This one is all that with a heaping helping of some of the nicest park staff you'll ever be pleased to meet. Scenery is beautiful; spots next to the woods and trails, as well as spots on the water. Beautiful walking trails that we thoroughly enjoyed. Paved roads throughout. Safe and secure; gate is digital keypad locked after hours. Showers/baths were spotless. We'd stay here again in a heartbeat. Only downside was no WiFi, but that's coming. Picnic tables were covered - haven't seen that before! We camped at Twin Coves Park in a Motorhome.

Osage Prairie RV Park, Nevada, Missouri

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

Superior experience. Smaller campground with amenities many larger campgrounds don't have. Clean, visually appealing, and lots of charm. Dog walk area is big enough to put a small house on and is easily accessible. Nice playground and mini-golf (Dec. 23 - we didn't play!), and a well-stocked general store. Parking spots were gravel, but we were almost level without dropping our jacks. Unusually, office doesn't close until 8:30, which was terrific for our 7:00 arrival. The owners, are super nice people; one is also an accomplished leather worker whose skills far exceed his modesty - ask to see the saddle he restored! Office, rest rooms (His'n and Her'n), other buildings are done on a western theme, complete with ropes on the rest room privacy doors, forked branches for coat hooks, counterweights for the rest room doors, and the general store. While we only spent one night due to trip plans, we'll definitely be back on a regular basis, hopefully for a multiple night stay. Just one suggestion - when you exit I-49 southbound, the turn to the campground is only 100 feet from the exit ramp. If you're a bit distracted, it's awfully easy to miss. We camped at Osage Prairie RV Park in a Motorhome.

Spend some time browsing in the general store and talking with the owners. Wonderful experience. Head south on I-49 for an interesting photo opportunity. There's a grain bin with a tree growing inside it - you just see the top of tree.

Little Rock North / Jct. I-40 KOA, North Little Rock, Arkansas

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $54.00
Overall Rating:

We came into this park not wanting to like it because of the high rate. We needed to stop near Little Rock as a logical travel break and this KOA site was the closest to the interstate. I balked at the $54 rate, which I considered way too high, but booked it anyway because we didn't want to deal with Little Rock downtown traffic. From the moment we drove in until we left, I totally had my opinion changed! The staff escorted us to our site, made sure we were positioned appropriately (they have decking adjacent to the concrete pad and naturally didn't want us parking the coach on decking that wouldn't hold the weight). The store was well stocked, the "Double Trouble" ice cream parlor looked like a lot of good times (and calories!), and the restrooms/showers were sparkling clean. I wouldn't call the spaces between units "roomy", but we didn't feel like we were rubbing shoulders with the neighbors. Didn't use the pool or spa, but we sure might the next time we're through Little Rock. Definitely looks like a resort park with super-friendly staff. We camped at Little Rock North / Jct. I-40 KOA in a Motorhome.

Peculiar Park Place RV Park, Peculiar, Missouri

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $32.00
Overall Rating:

Stayed overnight and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. This park is definitely on our repeat list. The whole staff was welcoming, friendly, and did everything they could to meet our needs. It's a great place to stop when visiting Kansas City; you're one mile off the interstate, but you can see the park from the US 71/I-49. There's a truck stop at the exit with a restaurant. All the spots appear very level, even though they're gravel. We had a picnic table, shade, and a very quiet area. Dog walking area is very nice too! Reservations are recommended. When I called, the lady said they were full, but worked things around to get us a space. She asked if we were Good Sam or military. When I told her "both", she immediately thanked me for my service. That meant a lot. My only criticism is the WiFi, which could've been a lot stronger. I kept getting bumped off after just a few minutes of email, making it impossible to work. With a stronger WiFi, I'd have rated this a 10. We camped at Peculiar Park Place RV Park in a Motorhome.

Pecan Grove RV Park, Lake Village, Arkansas

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $32.00
Overall Rating:

Wonderful parkl While it has an area for long-term/resident stays, there's a large area of spaces for overnight/short term stays. All spots I could see were flat and so close to level we didn't even bother with our jacks. Parking spots area grass and marked by wood borders, which lend a nice rustic appearance. Grass is closely mowed with no weeds showing anywhere. Dirt roads are level with no ruts. Plenty of room to walk dogs. Park shows lots of care. Cable TV was a nice bonus. WiFi not the strongest, but it sufficed for our needs. There were few people the night we stayed. The spaces could feel a little close, but we've stayed in a lot tighter places. The older reviews that have a negative tone are 180 degrees out from out very positive experience. We'd gladly stay there again. We camped at Pecan Grove RV Park in a Motorhome.

Sleepy Hollow RV Park & Campground, Oxford, Iowa

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

Beautiful park, lots of amenities, best general store I've seen. Even though it's within eyesight of I-80, only time I heard traffic was when walking dog. Lots of shade trees. No cable, but OTA reception crystal clear. Spaces are close together. Our spot (103) was on a steep hill, but the parking area was level. Never had to use our powered levelers. Would have rated a 10 but for these factors: 1. When making reservations, I was told there was WiFi. There wasn't. Was a real pain trying to stay on top of business while we camped. Campground wifi covers only small area. 2. Roads are narrow and badly rutted, so much so that you risk an eroded area grabbing your wheel. 3. Dog walk area is a steep grade. Wear good shoes and be sure you don't have difficulty climbing hills. Also, many people failed to clean up after their dogs. Could be health hazard for your dog. Area does not appear to be checked/cleaned regularly. We camped at Sleepy Hollow RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

Overall Rating:

Urban area campground with lots of trees. Really nice treed pet area in the back of the park. Very few pull-throughs, but the back-in space was plenty wide enough to park our dolly and toad beside our coach. We were able to disconnect and reconnect right in front of our space without problems. Very nice owner and on-site staff. Store on-site and very easy access to and from the interstate. Very quiet, friendly folks, many of whom are permanent residents there. Park is clean! We camped at Walnut Grove RV Park in a Motorhome.

Camp Mi Casa on the Route RV Park, Carthage, Missouri

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

Previous reviews showed $20 price, which attracted us. That's actually the FMCA rate. Their standard rate is $35, but the owner discounted $5 for me being retired military. Relatively new park, very clean, owner was super helpful and talked a lot about the history of the place. It's literally on the old Route 66 highway. She's got big plans for developing the park and we'd love to stay there again after those plans are fulfilled. Compared to what we read about other parks in the area, the standard rate is overpriced for what the park is right now, unless you're using the FMCA discount. However, if making a new friend in the RV community has value to you, come on and join us there.

When we drove in, we didn't even have to drop our levelers. Very nice. Bathhouse and pool area were beautifully landscaped.

While there was no specific pet area, there are large grassy areas in which to walk your dog. Owner is considering adding a store to sell artisan & food goods, like one of our other favorite campgrounds. She also has two books for sale, written by a fellow who grew up on the property when his family raised chickens there a few decades ago.

We'd stay there again - with a current FMCA membership! We camped at Camp Mi Casa on the Route RV Park in a Motorhome.

Downtown Riverside RV Park, North Little Rock, Arkansas

Date of Stay: November, 2016 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

This was our second stay in this park within two weeks. We came back because we were happy with the cleanliness, ease of access, and security. Unfortunately, this time there was significant construction going on (building new concrete pads). This didn't concern us because we were only staying one night. When we tried to pull into our site, I had to move 30-40 grids of rebar that the concrete crews stacked across a third of our site. No mention of this was made when we checked in. When I raised the issue with the park attendant, who said only "I'm sorry". No effort was made to get someone to move the rebar for me or anything else. An email to the city (it's a city-owned park) did not elicit a response. At 7 a.m. this morning, the concrete crew arrived and began unloading heavy equipment, making a lot of noise well before most parks quiet hours are over. Bottom line: It's a good park, but if you're considering this park, (1) ask if they have construction going on, (2) ask to check your site before paying anything, and (3) insist on any encumbrances being removed from your site before you pay for it. We camped at Downtown Riverside RV Park in a Motorhome.
