Albuquerque Central KOA, Albuquerque, New Mexico

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

Rate is monthly as we stayed for 3 months recovering from knee surgery. This is a very well run KOA just off I40 that is gated and secure. They escort you to your site and pick up trash whenever you put it out. We had a shady, level, paved, pull thru that allowed enough room to park the truck as well as a small car. All utilities worked well and, when the trees leafed out, the staff trimmed them so the satellite dish would work-excellent service. The pool was sparkling clean and very refreshing when the temps got hot.The staff is very friendly. Propane and a dump are available on site. We camped at Albuquerque Central KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Great overnight stop with long pull thrus, good utilities and open sky for satellite. We didn't unhook. The staff is efficient and friendly. There is a nearby airport, but noise is not a problem. Easy on and off I40, with fuel and food available. The park offers very good BBQ sandwiches if you don't want to leave the park. We camped at USA RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Costco is right out the back gate and has diesel at excellent prices. In N Out Burger is close by as well. Winter in Phoenix has all sorts of events ie: Phoenix Open, Barrett Jackson, NASCAR and spring training baseball as well as hundreds of golf courses. If you are bored, it's your own fault!

Meteor Crater RV Park, Winslow, Arizona

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

An over nite stop in a pull thru with water and 30 amp that was long enough to stay hooked up, but needed couple of blocks to level side to side. Needed to carefully position the fiver as a nice tree could block dish reception. Everything worked well. The park is far enough from I40 to be quiet at night and the stars are wonderful here. Fuel is available at the station in front of the park and then easy access to I40. We camped at Meteor Crater RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Albuquerque North / Bernalillo KOA, Bernalillo, New Mexico

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

Rate is monthly including electric. We were in a long level gravel pull thru with excellent utilities, a nice synthetic lawn area with picnic table and some shade and room to park our truck in front. Satellite was no problem, wifi was good and the laundry is clean and in good repair. Propane is available at the park. We have stayed here several times and staff is constantly cleaning and adding new amenities, this time a new block wall along the street. The owner is one of the hardest working people we have met in our travels. The staff is helpful and friendly. We will return when next we are in the area. We camped at Albuquerque North / Bernalillo KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Sky Mountain Resort RV Park, Chama, New Mexico

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

Located on the banks of the Chama River, this is a well run, friendly and beautiful park. Our site was a pull thru in the open section with excellent utilities and an open sky for dish. Other parts of the park are in the trees and several overlook the river. Many people return each year and this is a very friendly park. The park hosts pancake breakfasts, pot lucks and evening music under the stars. Wifi is OK, but not much bandwidth is available in this small, rural mountain town. Most evenings, deer wander thru the park and this year, bears were sighted as well and late season elk could be heard bugling at night. The owners are just the best, we have not found better in all of our travels! We camped at Sky Mountain Resort RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

There is a well stocked grocery/ hardware store and auto parts and fuel. Closest Walmarts are in Espanola, Alamosa and Pagosa Springs. There is an excellent medical clinic in Tierra Amarillo.

Mountain Views at Rivers Edge RV Resort, Creede, Colorado

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $23.00
Overall Rating:

Just an excellent stay at this park along the Rio Grande River. We had a wide, long back in with good utilities, the only minor ding is that the sewer is at the rear of the site. Not a problem, just need to have extra hose, which we do. Wifi is OK and Verizon is mostly three bars, typical for small mountain towns, a small inconvenience compared to the amazing views at 8,900 feet elevation. The park is satellite friendly. Staff was friendly and helpful, receiving mail and UPS/FEDEX and has change for the excellent, clean laundry. The park hosts non-denominal church services on Sunday in the gathering room. We camped at Mountain Views at Rivers Edge RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

The Creede Rep Theatre is a don't miss activity in this small mountain town, extremely talented actors and musicians performing on two venues. There are several good restaurants in town, we really enjoyed Arp's, Kip's and a drive to funky Freemon's for a great burger that should be on your list. The Kentucky Belle Market is well stocked and has an excellent meat department. There are two well stocked fly shops in town.

Pueblo South / Colorado City KOA, Pueblo, Colorado

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

We have stayed here before and will do so again when we are in the area. Our 50amp pull thru was level, long and all utilities worked well. Although you can see I25, there is little road noise and is quiet at night. The staff was very friendly and escorted us to our site. There is grass between sites and a picnic table. The park is located south of Pueblo, but fuel and restaurants are available near the park. We camped at Pueblo South / Colorado City KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

This was our second stop at this KOA. The new owner was very friendly and put us in a long, level pull thru with good utilities with a small grass lawn. It was very quiet at night and had an open sky for satellite. We had a large rainstorm that night and the site drained very well, no mud. We camped at Goodland KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Camp Lakewood Campground & RV Park, Effingham, Illinois

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

A well located park far enough from the interstate to be quiet, as we were just here for an overnight. We had a level pull thru site next to the office with dish access and good utilities, including wifi. Just as we arrived, there was a pretty strong rainstorm, but the gravel drained quickly and there was no problem. The women in the office were friendly and helpful and we were escorted to our spot. Fuel and restaurants are at the interstate exits close by. We camped at Camp Lakewood Campground & RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Holiday Shores RV Resort and Golf Course, Durand, Michigan

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $38.00
Overall Rating:

This is a very nice park with lakes, a golf course and quiet in the Flint area. We were escorted to a very spacious back in concrete site that was level and long. The utilities were well placed and all worked fine, and we even had open sky for satellite. The folks in the office were very friendly. This park has many park models and lots of folks who stay for the summer-there are lots of activities available, including golf. Be careful when arriving, I missed the turn for the office and had to go down the road to be able to turn around! We camped at Holiday Shores RV Resort and Golf Course in a Fifth Wheel.

Mackinaw Mill Creek Camping, Mackinaw City, Michigan

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

This campground is located about two miles south of Mackinaw City on the shores of Lake Huron. The price reflects 3 different rates during our stay, i.e.: weekend. The campground is huge and you need to pay attention to the park map when you come in. Our site was a large back-in that was wide and long, surrounded on three sides by trees and foliage. We were on a corner, so it was even bigger. All utilities worked well and the site drained quickly after a HUGE rain. We were able to get satellite at this site; not all can. There is a well stocked store, beaches, and a shuttle stop for the Mackinac Island boats. They really cater to families and we saw lots of bike riders and kids having fun. We camped at Mackinaw Mill Creek Camping in a Fifth Wheel.

Take the trip to Mackinac Island! They sell boat tickets at the office and the shuttle stops in the park, very convenient. We took a horse carriage tour and enjoyed it. Also, a cocktail on the 660 ft long porch of the Grand Hotel was a treat, even at $17.50 for a bloody mary and a wonderful view is included. We visited Sault St. Marie and the Soo Locks to see a 1,000 foot long plus ship pull into the locks, get lowered 21 feet from Lake Superior to Lake Huron. You MIGHT want to have some fudge.

Overall Rating:

This is a very well run KOA located in a beautiful wooded area. Our pull thru (#127) was probably the only one in the park with satellite access. It was very long, could have fit another 40 ft fiver and truck! Everything worked well and drained after a rain. The wifi was excellent and staff told us that they can boost the signal when very busy. There are all kinds of activities and amenities for families here and several golf courses are close by.
