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.

Ride the train! Just a great day chugging thru the beautiful mountains of NM and CO. Good meals at Finas (breakfast burrito), ElkHorn Cafe, Boxcar and High Country. 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.

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.

Goodland KOA, Goodland, Kansas

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

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.

Salina KOA, Salina, Kansas

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $37.00

We were escorted to our long, level pull thru site with satellite access, despite lots of shade trees in the park. Utilities were toward the rear, but not a problem. The wifi was very good and fast! Easy on-off the interstate with fuel and restaurants. We camped at Salina KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

We drove to Abilene and visited the Eisenhower Presidential Library and Home and it was very well done, from his childhood to military service, to his presidency. We had dinner at Joe Snuffys Diner in Abilene and the food was both tasty and plentiful.

Great Escape RV Park & Campground, Higginsville, Missouri

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

Although close to I70, this park is quiet and easy on and off, with fuel close by. We had a spacious, level pull thru with good utilities and open sky for dish. The wifi worked very well. There is a nice pool and clubhouse and a couple of lakes, if you would like to fish. We camped at Great Escape RV Park & Campground 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.

Gaylord KOA, Gaylord, Michigan

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $44.00
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. We camped at Gaylord KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Wayne County Fairgrounds & RV Park, Belleville, Michigan

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

The sites are pull-through gravel and grass with good utilities and an open sky for dish, located on the fairgrounds. WiFi was good and fast and the office staff was great. The laundry is small and you need a prepaid card from the office to operate-no coins. This is an excellent base in the Detroit metro area, close to fuel, restaurants, and shopping.

Tips for other Campers:

The Henry Ford Museum and Greenfield Village were wonderful. We spent 8+ hours there and didn't get to see it all! President Lincoln's seat from Ford Theater, Thomas Edison's lab where he invented the light bulb, presidential limos, and all manner of Americana are here. We did not have time to do the Ford plant tour, maybe next time!

This is a very nice resort style KOA with all kinds of amenities and activities for family camping. We had a level gravel pull thru with good utilities but no access to satellite in our site, but they do have cable. They young women in the office were just excellent at check in and we were escorted to our site. It was quiet at night and reasonable close to the turnpike for entry/exit.

Our site was in the lower, more open pull-through section with full hooksups and open sky for dish. Everything worked well and the gravel drained quickly after a strong rainstorm. There are lakes, a pool, and other amenities that we didn't have time to use. The staff was very friendly and efficient. We camped at Fox Den Acres in a Fifth Wheel.

Fallingwater, the iconic Frank Lloyd Wright home designed to cantilever over a creek, is about an hour southeast and should not be missed. The tour was excellent and the grounds are lovely. Lunch at Primati Bros in Pittsburgh is a must- a large grilled sandwich with meat, cheese, coleslaw and fries between two big slices of bread and washed down with an Iron City brew or two--authentic Pittsburgh!

Niagara Lazy Lakes, Lockport, New York

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $55.00
Overall Rating:      

We had a long pull-through in an open area of the park with water and 30 amp electric, and open sky for our dish. The WiFi was OK, don't know if it would be on crowded weekends. There is a dump station on the way out. This is a membership resort, with many people camping on the weekends. They have all kinds of activities, two lakes and a store, which has paddleboats and other sports equipment. They do have a ton of rules, but at least everyone knows what is expected. It was very quiet at night. It is a bit of a drive on two lane roads through several towns. We camped at Niagara Lazy Lakes in a Fifth Wheel.
