High Island RV Park, High Island, Texas

Date of Stay: January, 2018 - $23.00
Overall Rating:

(Rate shown is based on a weekly stay). Tight but pretty little campground, well maintained and taken care of. The owner is very nice and friendly. The FHU worked well with strong electrical. Weakish but reliable AT&T signal and quite a few OTA channels (no cable TV available). Big rigs will fit but require careful maneuvering; the pads are just long enough and the turns are tight. On the other hand there is ample parking room for tow vehicles or toads. Lots of grassy areas and some landscaping made the park appealing to us. There is one convenience store and one post office in High Island and that's about it (Hurricane Ike pretty much devastated the town and it never recovered); a 15-minute ride due north to Winnie is required for most everything (groceries, propane, etc.). The area is a birder's paradise with four Audubon bird sanctuaries within High Island proper, and Anahuac National Wildlife Refuge just a short drive away. Even during our stay in January, birds (egrets, heron, geese, spoonbills, raptors, etc.) were plentiful near and around town. I'm told it's quite difficult to get a spot in the campground during March and April, at the height of the migration. We camped at High Island RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

If you're in a big rig and looking for one the pull-through sites, I highly recommend NOT driving to the house/office on 4th Street. Instead, turn onto 5th Street and walk over to the office. The reason is that 'making the square' to make your way back from the office to the pull-through entrance on 5th Street involves narrow roads, very tight turns, and steep 6-foot ditches on both sides. Feasible, but needlessly traumatic.

San Antonio KOA, San Antonio, Texas

Date of Stay: December, 2017 - $50.00
Overall Rating:

Large, older park, very nicely treed and extremely well maintained. The sites are adequately spaced for this type of park, and big rigs are no problem (we managed to park truck, 40-ft 5-th wheel and small car on ours, without being on the grass or in the street). Amenities are first rate, including activities for the little ones; paved roads; staff super friendly and effective; hookups well located and reliable; on-site breakfast and Hunts Brothers mini-pizzeria. The campground is adjacent to the Salado Creek Walkway, which runs for several miles in either direction and is ideal for biking or walking the dog. The city bus stops right in front of the park and takes you downtown in about 15 minutes for $1.30/person; ideal for visiting the Alamo or the Riverwalk. The only downside we noticed is some "industrial" noise pretty much 24/7 from nearby businesses, but it would certainly not prevent us from returning. Overall, very nice KOA. We camped at San Antonio KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Grande Cache Municipal Campground, Grande Cache, Alberta

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $27.00
Overall Rating:

Very nice campground, wooded and surrounded by forest. About one mile from Hwy 40, the main road through town, and fairly easy to access. All sites are quite spacious, most with FHU (15/30 amp), the others with E/W (15-30 amp). Extremely quiet at night; well kept (the manager lives on site) and friendly. Nice little playground for the kids. The only issue we had was the power; despite being a 30-amp connection, the voltage dropped below 102V as soon as we drew any more than about 15 amps. The city even sent an electrician to see if anything could be done, but to no avail (he did confirm the problem, but mentioned that there are plans to upgrade many sites to 50 amps in the near future). We camped at Grande Cache Municipal Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Grande Cache is located in beautiful mountains and there are lots of trails (hiking, ATV, horses, etc) and two beautiful lakes within a five-minute drive. Unfortunately the coal mine closed (again) in 2015 and the town is taking a beating. Still, the main grocery store is well stocked (if a little expensive) and there are no problems getting gas or diesel.

Camp Tamarack RV Park, Grande Prairie, Alberta

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

Convenient to Hwy 40 and about a five-minute drive from town (where all services are available). Nicely treed, but the sites are rather narrow and not that level. Interior roads are easy to navigate despite the trees. Power, water and cable mid-site, sewer at the back of the site. All worked well. Very friendly owners who bought the park about four years ago. The main problem is the incessant highway noise. Hwy 40 is a major road used day and night by heavy trucks (logging, oil & gas...) and the campground is unfortunately right next to it; the entire campground is very noisy, especially the overnighter sites that are closest to the highway. Otherwise, it's a decent park. We camped at Camp Tamarack RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Lundbreck Falls Provincial Recreation Area, Lundbreck, Alberta

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $24.00
Overall Rating:

A small, simple but nice campground right on the Crowsnest River. One caveat right off the bat: I would advise bigger rigs to stick to the upper loop (sites #1 to #15--although #6 to #9 are tents only). That upper loop is easily navigated by any size rig... which is not true of the lower part of the campground. That being said, it's a nice spot for a few nights. Power (15/30) was fine. No water, no sewer and no dump station (there is a water spigot in the lower part, but with the new Alberta regulations the water is no longer deemed potable). The river is quite nice and the falls are worth the short walk. One drawback is that the campground is located between Hwy 3 and the Crowsnest train track: while the noise is not deafening, it might affect light sleepers. I would definitely return for a few nights if in the area. We camped at Lundbreck Falls Provincial Recreation Area in a Fifth Wheel.

The little towns of Crowsnest Pass (Frank, Blairmore, Bellevue and Coleman) are 15-30 minutes away with all the basic services as well as some nice caf├ęs and shops. The well designed Frank Slide Interpretive Centre, about 20 minutes west of Lundbreck Falls, is worth the visit (as the Frank Slide of 1903 was the deadliest in Canadian history).

Centennial Park, Bow Island, Alberta

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $16.00
Overall Rating:

Small municipal campground bordering on farmed fields and the town's grassy park. The layout consists of about 20 sites arranged around a central large, gravel square. Easy to maneuver for big rigs (although the short entrance road requires driver attention). All sites are power and electric (30 amp). No sewer and no dump station, although there is a free one about one block west on the town's main road (we didn't use it so can't comment). Park is extremely quiet at night (admittedly, there were only two other rigs while we were there). Plumbed washrooms are available at the adjacent city park and were very clean during our stay. Very good value and we found it very pleasant for a few nights. We camped at Centennial Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Foothills Lions Centennial Park, Black Diamond, Alberta

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $28.00
Overall Rating:

(Rate above based on weekly discount.) Easy to access, big-rig friendly park, half of which redone in 2013 after the big flood. Sites are gravel and generally quite spacious. FHU functional and conveniently located. Walking distance to 'downtown,' which has a few shops and restaurants. There's also a paved walking trail that runs right by the campground all the way (2 miles) to the next town, Turner Valley. Not the prettiest of parks but a good value for a few nights. We camped at Foothills Lions Centennial Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Park Lake Provincial Park, Lethbridge, Alberta

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

Very nice little park, complete with sandy beach and a pleasant trail that goes around part of the lake. Situated in the middle of farmed fields; very quiet at night but can be quite windy at times. The campground is in two parts. Loop A is older and is not really suited to bigger rigs, but it does offer many sites that are just about on the water. Loop B is much more recent and offers long pull-throughs as well as several back-ins. There is a central dump station (fee) and several water spigots throughout the campground. Power remained solid during our stay despite high occupancy. The park tends to be booked solid for the nice summertime weekends; advance reservations recommended. We camped at Park Lake Provincial Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Massacre Rocks State Park, American Falls, Idaho

Date of Stay: April, 2017 - $29.00
Overall Rating:

Caveats about our visit: only the upper loop was open (winter season), the whole park was undergoing electricity upgrades (up to 50-amp service on several sites!), and the water wasn't turned on--we had to dry camp, which explains the discounted rate. That being said, what a wonderful spot, with great views of (and boat access to) the Snake River. The campsites are interestingly designed along the contours of the terrain, which also means that only a few are suitable for big rigs (especially in the upper loop). That also applies to the interior roads, which require careful driving. Nice walking/biking trails (unpaved). Dump station available when exiting (could be challenging for bigger rigs). Definitely recommended, but take your time if in a big rig. We camped at Massacre Rocks State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Cedar City KOA, Cedar City, Utah

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

Older, smaller KOA, although well maintained and modernized; not overly attractive. Check-in a little curt but efficient (although the entrance gets pretty cramped if two or more rigs are present at the same time--careful manoeuvring necessary). FHU functional, no complaints there. Larger and smaller pull-through sites (big rigs no problem), and several large back-ins at the back of the park. Grass between pull-through sites, typical width for such parks, about 7 feet. In a rather industrial neighbourhood but not too noisy at night. Leaving the park can be challenging, especially if turning left (northbound), as the park is on a pretty busy four-wide main road. Overall, the price was reasonable but I wouldn't want to pay much more. We camped at Cedar City KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Boardman Marina Park, Boardman, Oregon

Date of Stay: April, 2017 - $24.00
Overall Rating:

What an enjoyable park! Lots of grass, right by the Columbia River, and a 3-mile walking/biking paved trail runs right through it. FHU showing their age a bit, but perfectly serviceable. Most sites are paved with an adjacent gravel (tent?) pad; leveling can be a little difficult, especially on the pull-through sites. Several sites can accomodate big rigs, but not all. Gets quite busy, I think reservations are a necessity during the peak season (we were there in early April and the park was essentially full). Great overall, we'll definitely come back when in the area. We camped at Boardman Marina Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Sandy Riverfront RV Resort, Troutdale, Oregon

Date of Stay: April, 2017 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

'Standard' modern RV park, with pull-through sites in the middle (mostly overnighters) and back-ins along the periphery (mostly perms or semi-perms--nice rigs, no clutter). Extremely clean and well managed (aside from the office hours being quite limited). FHU perfectly functional (for the pull-through sites, electric and water at the back, sewer in the middle); nice grassy strip between the sites (not overly wide, but acceptable in such a park). Train tracks are very close to the park, but for the most part, it looks as though they don't blow their horn very often, so we didn't mind the rumble when they (frequently) go by. We camped at Sandy Riverfront RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Bottomless Lakes State Park, Roswell, New Mexico

Date of Stay: March, 2017 - $14.00
Overall Rating:

Great little state park. Extremely reasonable price for water and electric, but be aware there is a $10/night surcharge for a second vehicle if that's your case. The campground is well laid out and very suitable for big rigs (most sites). Accommodations vary from 50-amp FHU to dry camping. All sites are well spaced, level and just a short distance from Lea Lake's beach, the largest of the bottomless lakes. Nice visitor centre, complete with explicative displays about the origin and nature of the lakes. Nice wetlands trail at the south end of the park and a 3-mile hiking/mountain-biking trail at the north end. We camped at Bottomless Lakes State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tombstone Territories RV Resort, Huachuca City, Arizona

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

Very nice RV park. All sites are large pull-throughs on desert gravel. Full hook-ups at each site (some 30 amps, some 50 amps); the only drawback is very low water pressure (35 PSI)--but the water is very soft, an amazing and pleasant surprise in Arizona. Electricity is metered (even for overnight stays) and billed upon checkout. Despite their website's claim, the views are just OK. At least, no industry or junkyard in sight. In my opinion, the best RV park near Tombstone, which is about a 10-minute drive away. We camped at Tombstone Territories RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Date of Stay: March, 2016 - $41.00
Overall Rating:

Rate is with KOA discount. Decent, smaller park. Like most KOAs, a little over-priced. All hook-ups worked fine but only a few sites are suitable for bigger rigs, and even then some tight manoeuvring is required. Our site was adequate but far from spacious. Small petting zoo on site (goats, etc.). Dog friendly. We camped at Crescent City / Redwoods KOA in a Fifth Wheel.
