Oak Creek RV Park, Weatherford, Texas

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $36.00
Overall Rating:

Very large park with level, narrow concrete pads and streets. About 90% of the guests appear to be stayers. Many of the stayers have pets in fenced mini-yards. Overnight/short term guests appear to get the sites by the entrance to the park. The park is exceedingly clean and neat. From the appealing entrance and office to the pleasant greeting to the smiling escort to the level site, we were very pleased. There is just one problem and the owners of the park cannot do anything about it: The noise from I-20 is more than loud. I should upload an audio file as I would not have believed the noise if I only read about it. The park is on the interstate access road. So glad there was stable power as we had to sleep with the a/c running. No picnic table, grill, or fire pit. Pull thru and back-in sites that while somewhat close to one another had room for slides and awnings. Many tall trees add to the appeal of the park grounds. Laundry, showers, restrooms, playground, but we did not use them. Since we were up front, we did not have to navigate the tight turns if placed in the rear of the park with the stayers. A walk through the large and very neat park revealed the noise was as bad in the rear of the park as in the front. We camped at Oak Creek RV Park in a Motorhome.

Riverside RV Resort & Campground, Bartlesville, Oklahoma

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

Pleasant manager trying to deal with a year long detour at the street corner nearest the entrance to the park. They helpfully texted us a map to navigate the detour. Interior roads and sites are gravel and somewhat level. Sites are back in and pull through. Mostly stayers with some sites for over nighters and short termers. Sites are close but we could put out slide. Lots of shade. Water faucet was about 10" above the ground and easy to access. Valet service to pick up trash at your site, but in our case the dumpster was close by. Small swimming pool that was closed by the end of September. Navigating initial trip to site to park was aided by an escort. Park was very quite in spite of being near full. We camped at Riverside RV Resort & Campground in a Motorhome.

DeParcq Woods (Military FamCamp), Little Falls, Minnesota

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $17.00
Overall Rating:

This is a campground open for active, retired, reserve Military ID holders at the Camp Ripley ANG base just north of Little Falls, MN. It is a gem! Sites are w&e with a dump available. Tall oaks, red & white pines and poplar trees grace the campground. Sites are level concrete and nicely spaced. Each has a metal picnic table and gill/firepit. A large, clean rest room and shower facility is conveniently located. There is free firewood and there are three free laundries on the base. The campground is exceedingly clean. It is located along the Mississippi River. Walking/biking paths are convenient to the campground. Verizon signal is strong. We might have had the only site where you can get a satellite tv signal from a rooftop mounted unit. Several guests used portable satellite units. We camped at DeParcq Woods (Military FamCamp) in a Motorhome.

Red Trail Campground, Medora, North Dakota

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

Reviews by others and in some travel blogs lowered my expectations. That said, the park was fine. I was thankful to find a park open after Labor Day. I had an electric only site with a picnic table. I was thankful for the attendant who led me to my site and assisted me with backing in. He aligned my coach so I could deploy a slide. Free WiFi. Verizon signal strong. The campground is right in town and walking distance to dining. Unfortunately, I missed the local Medora Musical season by one day. We camped at Red Trail Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

If travelling on I-94 west from Medora, the Evelyn Cameron Heritage Center in Terry, MT is well worth the stop to tour photographic images of eastern Montana in the late 1800s/early 1900s. Contact the Heritage Center via their website or Facebook page for an excellent tour. Evelyn Cameron may be the Georgia O'Keefe of the photographic world. The campground is convenient to the South Unit of Theodore Roosevelt NP.

Governors' RV Park and Campground, Casselton, North Dakota

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

This is a good place for a convenient over-night if travelling I-94 in eastern North Dakota. It is located about 20 miles west of Fargo. Because of the large number of RVs parked somewhat close together, at first I thought I'd come upon an RV dealership. This park is adjacent to a Days Inn. While there were perhaps 8 cars parked overnight at the Days Inn, there must have been 50 or 60 RVs in the park. The above rate is for FHU with a GS discount. The park is a large gravel parking lot with perhaps 30' between each FHU site. A picnic table is included and there are pull-thru and back-in sites. Park guests have use of the Days Inn fitness center, a large laundry, bar, restaurant, and swim center. We camped at Governors' RV Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

Grandview Campground & RV Park, Hardin, Montana

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $43.00
Overall Rating:

This is an okay stop over for one night if visiting Little Big Horn National Monument. This is an April 1 thru Oct 31 park for full hookups. After the snow starts, it is electric only, but open year-round. Pull-thru and back-in sites. Sites and interior roads are gravel and rather level. Cable TV and free WiFi. Big rig friendly. Staff was pleasant. The office where a customer checks in is a real turn-off. Maybe we just hit it on a real messy day when a lot of cleaning was needed, but it was not a good first impression. Laundry room, but we did not check it out. Convenient to interstate. Large fuel station across the street. $10 fee to cancel reservation. One night fee if reservation cancelled within 3 days of arrival. Price reflects charge for full hookup site w/Good Sam discount plus 7% tax. We camped at Grandview Campground & RV Park in a Motorhome.

River's Edge RV & Cabins Resort, Evansville, Wyoming

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

This is a popular park with many people returning when passing through Casper. It is not much more than a level, treeless, gravel parking lot in an industrial area. The park is VERY clean. The office also includes a laundry, showers, game room and a few snacks for sale. The majority of the sites are pull-thru, FHU with 50 and 30amp, but our site was one of the few w&e sites and at the edge of the park nearest the river. Each site has a metal picnic table and an approximate 8' x 12' piece of artificial turf on the gravel. Plenty of big rigs in this park. We camped at River's Edge RV & Cabins Resort in a Motorhome.

Yampa River State Park (Headquarters Campground), Hayden, Colorado

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $24.00
Overall Rating:

Site was an ADA site that was level and concrete. All other sites are gravel, level, long and there are both back-in and pull-through sites. Interior roads are gravel and easy to maneuver. Sites have fire pit and picnic table (most covered) and stand-up grill. Sites are electric only, 20/30/50 amp. Water spigot available for filling on-board tank with fresh water. Toilets throughout campground are vault, but flush toilets, pay showers and a laundry are next to the visitor center. A dump station is available near the entrance.

No shade in this level campground makes a satellite signal easy to acquire. Verizon signal 2 bars. Clean laundry that charges only $1 for wash and 75 cents for dry. Visitor Center, where you check in, has interesting exhibits. Walking path circles the campground and has a wildlife viewing station. $7 daily vehicle fee in addition to campsite. Plenty of wind to provide a somewhat cooling breeze the last week of August. We camped at Yampa River State Park (Headquarters Campground) in a Motorhome.

Steamboat Lake State Park, Clark, Colorado

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $26.00
Overall Rating:

This state park is about 25 miles north of Steamboat Springs. The park has two campgrounds, Sunrise Vista and Dutch Hill. Each campground has about 90-100 sites. Neither of the campgrounds have water or sewer hook-ups. There are water spigots throughout the campgrounds to fill onboard fresh water tanks. There is a dump at the Dutch Hill campground that is shared with Sunrise Vista. All interior roads are paved. All sites are gravel and rather level. Each has a picnic table and fire pit. There are pull through and back-in sites. Many of the sites offer good views of the mountains and some have lake views. There is little shade due to a pine bark beetle infestation several years ago that necessitated tree removal. There are young pine and spruce and some aspen. About half of the sites in Sunrise are no-hook-up sites mostly enjoyed by tent campers. All sites in Dutch Hill offer electric. Big rigs are accommodated on many sites. This is a very popular park and fills up on the weekends with plenty of boating, fishing, hiking and birding enthusiasts. A marina offers rentals and the marina store has some camping supplies, snacks and souvenirs. The service center offers laundry (very clean), flush toilets and pay showers. Toilets in the campgrounds are pit toilets. Verizon signal is strong. Daily entrance fee require for vehicles, even if camping. We camped at Steamboat Lake State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Garmin GPS takes one to a fishing spot about 2 miles shy of the park headquarter/visitor center. Just keep going and the visitor center is obvious, located on the left. Plenty to do in Steamboat Springs; check community calendar for concerts, walks, farmers' markets. Clark Store, 8 miles toward Steamboat Springs, has free WiFi, good food and wonderful ice cream.

Cherry Creek State Park, Aurora, Colorado

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

When I was ready to reserve, there were no sites available online, but an ADA site was obtained by calling the reservation center. At check-in we overheard a comment that they are frequently fully reserved 6 months in advance. During August each year, all Veterans and active duty military, regardless of state of residence, may obtain a vehicle pass for August that eliminates the $8 daily entrance fee. Thank you Colorado! The 1 pm check-in time is enforced if park is near-full. Park has a laundry. Our site was a pull-thru with a level, concrete pad and had FHUs (30 and 50 amp). The site was sunny which was fine as we wanted to use the satellite, although many sites were shaded or partially shaded. Sites were cleaned nicely after each check-out. Interior roads were paved and easy to maneuver. Room for big rigs in this park. Lots of bicyclists and fishermen. The park gets heavy day-use as it is within the Denver metro area. We camped at Cherry Creek State Park in a Motorhome.

Peregrine Pines FamCamp (Military FamCamp), US Air Force Academy, Colorado

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

This is an Air Force FamCamp for use by military ID holders. Reservations for retirees accepted 60 days in advance, gravel sites and roads, high water pressure, less & less satellite friendly sites each year because the beautiful pine trees are flourishing. Strong Verizon signal. Park mostly full Sun-Thurs of our stay in early Aug. Park is a pleasant, place to stay for a few days and we recommend more than just a stop over. Multiple trains each day, while noticeable, were not offensive. No diesel on base. We camped at Peregrine Pines FamCamp (Military FamCamp) in a Motorhome.

Raton Pass Camp and Cafe (Formerly Cedar Rail), Raton, New Mexico

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

Located at the top of Raton Pass. Verizon signal very poor, but park WiFi good. Busy park on a Saturday night in August. So full we had to use w&e gravel overflow site. As previously reported, going north use exit 460 because of year-long I-25 construction. Gravel, no amenities in w&e overflow. Hummingbirds galore. Surprisingly quiet being so close to the interstate. We camped at Raton Pass Camp and Cafe (Formerly Cedar Rail) in a Motorhome.

Shepherd AFB Recreation Annex (Military FamCamp), Whitesboro, Texas

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

This is an Air Force FamCamp located on Lake Texoma for military ID holders. The last several miles of the road getting there are curvy and have several potholes. Recommend the first trip in is during daylight. The campground has been rebuilt since a flood a few years ago, but the marina has not yet been re-constructed. All sites are gravel. Lake-side sites are w&e, back-in, short, require leveling and several are side-by-side. Sites located on the small rise overlooking the lake are FHU, have a picnic table (most are new), a waist high grill and are mostly level. There are back-in and drive-thru in this area and all are close by one another. There is no vegetation to provide a screen between the sites. I did not try OTA because the sites are satellite friendly. There is no park WiFi, but Verizon provided 3-4 bars. The bath house included a clean laundry. This is very clean, quiet park with a wonderful breeze from the lake. There are no nearby highways or trains to provide noise. Plenty of hiking, kayaking, and fishing opportunities. The staff is long-term and very friendly and knowledgeable of the park and area. Breakfast & burgers at the grill on weekends in summer. Buy groceries in advance, but there is a small store with beer, snacks, camping supplies. Deer in evenings. Birds. Little shade, but sites 22 thru 28 had some. There is recycling for cans. We camped at Shepherd AFB Recreation Annex (Military FamCamp) in a Motorhome.

There is plenty of shade in this state park. The pads are raised asphalt. The majority of the pads in the park are level and shaded. There is plenty of dense vegetation between the sites so you don't notice a neighbor. Many OTA channels from Dallas, but could not pick up ABC. Verizon signal good. The park is a bit remote, so plan to arrive in daylight. The park staff was very pleasant and welcoming. We camped at Purtis Creek State Park in a Motorhome.

Date of Stay: February, 2018 - $41.00

This park is located just outside the gate to Bentsen Rio Grande SP. Do not confuse this Bentsen Palm VILLAGE RV Resort with the older RV Park down the road a couple of miles. Bentsen Palm VILLAGE RV Resort is truly a high-end resort park. Many, many activities in a maticulously manicured environment. Dog agility park. Free kayaks. Pontoon boat rides (need advance reservations). You can even wash your rv on arrival and departure. Free WiFi and many other amenities. We camped at Bentsen Palm Village RV Park in a Motorhome.
