Tawas Point State Park, East Tawas, Michigan

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $36.00
Overall Rating:      

The campground map on their Website is misleading: the "lake front" is blocked by a tree covered knoll and there are not a lot of paths to the lake. Big rigs: the "lake side" sites are short and the trees need trimming (for anything larger than a 30 ft Class C.) Office folks are lovely when you come back to say your site is too short, overgrown and un-level. We were in site 32 first then in site 101 - where our 36 ft overhung into someone else's empty site...OK on a Monday night during the eclipse and the campground only 60% full but I've no idea what we would have done on a weekend. The beach was an easy walk and lovely. Verizon worked well. We camped at Tawas Point State Park in a Motorhome.

Illinois State Fair Campgrounds, Springfield, Illinois

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

Great value! It is a typical, modern fairground campground: a parking lot with level sites, good water, electricity, no shade. We called the office telephone number twice on Sunday, left messages but no callback. On Monday, we did what other reviewers advised: we went in thru Gate 11 (open 24 hours a day) and called the security telephone number (posted near the gate). He advised us to go to the Handicapped lot, pick any site and he came up to unlock the electric box. We stayed two nights so we were there when the office opened on Wednesday morning and paid before we left. We will definitely stay there again! We camped at Illinois State Fair Campgrounds in a Motorhome.

West Lake Park, Summit Campground, Davenport, Iowa

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $22.00
Overall Rating:      

Popular, beautiful, well-managed campground. Sites are gravel and grass, level and treed. No reservations but call ahead and office staff will tell you how many sites were open at the last "site count" and some folks do hitch up and leave in the late afternoon. We got there at 1 p.m. on a Wednesday and got one of the two open sites and saw a third RVer wait about 30 minutes for another site to open up for his rig. Office folks are cheerful, helpful and have a fine collection of maps, brochures and tips for travelers. We camped at West Lake Park, Summit Campground in a Motorhome.

We LOVED the Mississippi River Visitor Center at Locks & Dam 15 which supports river barge and boat traffic on the Upper Mississippi River. It is managed by the Corps of Engineers and located on the military compound of the Rock Island Arsenal. To enter the Arsenal compound, go to the Moline gate to get a pass to be in the Arsenal area.

Mark Twain Cave Campground, Hannibal, Missouri

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

Large park with mature trees, lots of grass, lots of attractions nearby and a trolley downtown. Roads were fine and easy to maneuver as long as you take your time. Our site was long and shaded; we needed two sets of risers to get our 37 foot motorhome level. Electric and water service was fine. No WiFi or OTA television at our site. Our Verizon hot spot didn't work very well either - but we didn't come to charming Hannibal for any of that so we didn't care! We would definitely stay there again. We camped at Mark Twain Cave Campground in a Motorhome.

We took the Mark Twain River Boat Dinner cruise and loved it! Food was good and the band sweet....but it was the lovely, lovely cruise up and down the mighty Mississippi that was more than worth the $40 price. One didn't even have to close one's eyes to "slip back in time" and understand why riverboats were once the transportation method of choice for those with the funds to do it.

The Campus RV Park, Independence, Missouri

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

Small park, mature trees, concrete, level sites, full hookups with good water pressure and electrical service. Our site was spacious and an easy back-in. Many long termers here, but quiet and nice. Train noise was not a problem for us. No cable. Wifi available at office and laundry room but not at Site 6 (no OTA television at site 6 either). Laundry had 3 washers and 3 dryers, most are large and only cost $1. We did not use the bathrooms/showers. Easy walk to the Truman home & downtown Independence; short drive to the Truman Library and the Morman Temple. We camped at The Campus RV Park in a Motorhome.

Kansas City is clean, walkable and affordable to tour. FREE, ultra-modern, ultra-clean, street railcar from FREE parking in River Market District (stops in the Power & Light and the Crossroads Arts Districts) down to Union Station (Science Museum, impressive WWI War Memorial). A skywalk connects Union Station to the Crown Center (Hallmark Museum, LegoLand, Crayola City and other kid-pleasers).

Nice, quiet, clean campground, conveniently located to the Eisenhower Presidential Library and Museum. Most sites are level and treed. Water pressure and electricity were good.

We came for the Eisenhower Museum and Library ... it was wonderful. The Museum parking lot is large enough for several RV's so we went to the Museum on the way into town and then onto the Covered Wagon Campground; we didn't even disconnect for the night. There is a Chinese restaurant about 1 1/2 blocks across the street from the campground.

Fort Dodge RV Resort, Dodge City, Kansas

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

Brand new park that is adjacent to the city complex of zoo/playground/waterpark. Walking distance to old town Dodge City including the Boot Hill Museum, its chuck wagon dinner, and show at the Long Branch Saloon. Level concrete pull-thru slabs with all hook-ups available. No shade but you can see buffalo at the zoo on your way in/out. There is a small store in the office. Bathrooms were clean. WiFi and some of the cable television channels were not working when we were there. Rate reflects a two night-stay, complete package at the Boot Hill Museum, including dinner and the show. Great deal! We really loved the folks here. Nice people, charming place. We camped at Fort Dodge RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Majestic Pines RV Resort, Willis, Texas

Date of Stay: March, 2017 - $37.00
Overall Rating:      

The campground so new as to not yet be finished - and monthly residents are moving in as fast as the sites are opened. Owner is very nice and keeps the construction noise to a minimum. Campground has many mature trees, not all individual sites have a tree. Sites are pull-thru, 20 to 25 feet apart and not overly long (our site was under 45 feet in length.) Laundry is large, with quality equipment and free (when we stayed there). Swimming pool is large and has an outdoor grill. Campground is next to I-45 but we were up the hill near the swimming pool and road noise was not a problem. Dozens of cable channels available, WiFi was open and pretty good for the number of residents during working hours. Other times it slowed down significantly. There are private mail boxes available for those who are staying here long term. Dog park is one of the nicest I’ve seen in Texas: large, fenced, and shaded by tall pines. We will stay here again in the future if we can get in. Our rate reflects a one week rate. We camped at Majestic Pines RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Balmorhea State Park, Balmorhea, Texas

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $14.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a lovely, destination park for us. It is clean, quiet and built to ward off the sometimes intense heat of a high desert - with shaded picnic areas, adobe walled bathrooms and that lovely, lovely San Solomon Spring - fed swimming pool (built by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930's.) We have a Texas State Parks pass and love the engaging towns of Marfa, Fort Davis, Alpine and usually take a day trip to the McDonald Observatory. On weekends the pool is very popular with families and scuba diving classes but we enjoy being a part of that. Most of them are gone by 10 a.m. Monday, leaving us with roadrunners, rabbits, nice park rangers and sweet maintenance folks. As other reviewers noted: this region can get rain and cold. Many of the sites have cable TV at the site and Verizon cell phones and hot spots work well here - even in the rain. Whenever we have checked, the bathrooms were clean. Once we noticed that the 50 amp receptacle on a neighboring site was broken, mentioned it to the office and two young people came out and fixed it within an hour...and came over to show us how to hook up our cable box. :) We have experienced low water pressure but no litter or poor maintenance. We camped at Balmorhea State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Go to Marfa and tour the handsome El Paisano Hotel which served as the base of operations for months in the summer of 1955 for a Warner Brothers film crew and stars James Dean, Elizabeth Taylor and Rock Hudson as the movie Giant was being filmed. Then go out into the desert viewing stand and investigate the mysterious "Marfa Lights"; are they swamp gas/ghosts/your imagination? Only you (or your children) can decide. 

Harris St RV Park, Kilgore, Texas

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $15.00
Overall Rating:      

Very nice park, well maintained, clean and quiet. No working 50 amp at any of the sites the night we stayed there, but 30 amp was fine with the use of an adaptor. There is no sewer hookup at the sites but there is a dump station. As other reviewer wrote: "The RV park entrance is on the west side at South Commerce street between Harris Street and West Woodlawn (Hwy 42)." We will stay there again when in the area. We camped at Harris St RV Park in a Motorhome.

Natchez Trace Parkway / Jeff Busby Campground, Ackerman, Mississippi

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $1.00
Overall Rating:      

The Jeff Busby CG at Milepost 193 of the Natchez Trace Parkway is one of the three, free, primitive (no hookups) campgrounds along the Parkway. The CG has toilets but no showers. All sites at Jeff Busby are heavily treed, pull-thrus, with asphalt pads. One looked to have a turn a bit tight for a large (40 ft or more) motorhome but our 36' motorhome was manageable (and we got two slides out). Another couple who camped there that night said that they stay there twice a year on their way/back from New England. We will stay there again.

Luray KOA (formerly Luray RV Resort Country Waye), Luray, Virginia

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $57.00
Overall Rating:      

Expensive and beautiful park, well managed, clean and quiet. Sites are level, many with mature trees for shade, all with picnic table and fire ring. Both swimming pools are immaculate as are the bath houses and camper's kitchen. We stay there twice each year on our way to/from New England and spent five days there in August to tour the fascinating museums and caverns of Luray. No OTA television but Wi-Fi is fine for email, downloading .pdf's of newspapers and magazine. Our Verizon hot spot worked fine also.

We love this park and the nearby Luray Cavern complex with the (free) bell tower concerts at 8 p.m. on most summer evenings. (The concerts probably continue throughout the year but we have only been there in the summer.)

Nearby Luray Caverns are well-advertised but the three museums (Auto, Toy and Luray Valley Museums) included with the cavern tour are worth the price of admission on their own. The Auto and Luray Valley Museums are absolute gems. Allow several hours to see each of them, well worth the time.

Rocky Top Campground, Blountville, Tennessee

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

Beautiful campground, very well managed, clean, quiet, convenient to I-81. Hubby will drive an hour longer, stop an hour earlier just to stay here whenever we are traveling along I-81. Sites are terraced into the side of a hill, quite level, mostly pull thrus, shady with nice views with pads of either paved or packed clean gravel and concrete or wood patios. There is a sauna but no swimming pool. Great Wi-Fi and cable television. Hosts are great, lead you to your site and help you get out onto Pearl Lane again in the morning by walking out into the road and stopping traffic if he thinks you might need it. (We didn't but he did it anyway ! :) )

This is an adults-only campground so if you have children in tow, best continue to the KOA less than a mile down the road. We camped at Rocky Top Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a small and well managed resort: lovely setting, lots of trees, spacious and level sites, well maintained, heated swimming pool, large and lovely playground, onsite restaurant (with good food) and a well-stocked pub, great staff, new and comfortable bathrooms. Lots of free stuff for kids of all ages: basketball (with different height hoops), horseshoes, shuffleboard, a pool table, etc. No cable and our Verizon cell phones did not work most of the time but the WiFi was almost always OK. Folks in the office are lovely and caring people. We loved the place and wish we had brought more family along. We will return! We camped at Alpine Valley Campground in a Motorhome.

Apple Hill Campground, Bethlehem, New Hampshire

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $18.00
Overall Rating:      

OK for those with a self-contained unit, would not stay there otherwise.
Weeknight rate is PA of $17.50, Friday and Saturday rates are $35. Sites are lovely, heavily treed (careful with those slides) and very quiet at night. Most sites are spacious but some sites are eroded and need levelers. Other reviewers have commented on the bathrooms, nothing has changed. Washers and dryer are outside the bathrooms, under an overhang and exposed to the weather. One washer had a large spider web over the coin insert, the dryer was unplugged. No OTA channels but Verizon worked fine.
Exit road had major rain ruts that would cause issues for many RV's. Hubby U-turned our Class A to exit out the "entrance" road.
Really nice folks at the office but we probably won't be back. We camped at Apple Hill Campground in a Motorhome.
