Marina Dunes RV Park, Marina, California

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $80.00
Overall Rating:      

We arrived 30 minutes before check in. As we walked up to the counter, the first words we heard were, "Well, you know you are 30 minutes early.". No "welcome to our campground - let's see if your site is ready" nothing polite. Then we find that we were assigned a camp site right next to the highway. Note that most of the camp sites are right next to the highway and are very loud. We specifically asked for a non highway site when we reserved the spot 6 weeks prior and were ignored. Note that the bathrooms were closed for remodeling and that temporary bathrooms were being used. We will not be back. We do not like to be ignored or treated rudely. We camped at Marina Dunes RV Park in a Motorhome.

Campground is right across the street from the dunes, which are very nice. We have not found an excellent camp ground near Monterey. Most of them have major trade offs. Issues with roads, aesthetics, facilities, etc.

Barstow / Calico KOA, Yermo, California

Date of Stay: November, 2015 - $49.00
Overall Rating:      

The only real complaint is the the campground is right next to the freeway, so it is noisy. On the other hand, that freeway location makes for an easy in and out to get where you are going. The campground is clean; sites are fairly level, and there is vegetation between sites. Sites and roads are gravel. Hookups worked well and were very convenient. There is a rec room with games, a pool, a store, and a playground. It's a really decent place to stay with the drawbacks being that you are in the desert and next to the freeway. Other than that, the campground is great! We camped at Barstow / Calico KOA in a Motorhome.

Lake Havasu State Park, Lake Havasu City, Arizona

Date of Stay: November, 2015 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

Beautifully maintained park with enormous spaces fronting and nearing the lake. great walking trails and a very pretty nature garden nearby. The park is within walking distance of London Bridge. Bathrooms are old and decent, but everything else about park maintenance is stellar. Lots of gravel (it's the desert) everywhere that the dog didn't like much. Roads are paved, sites are level. Great value at $30 per night. Friendly park rangers!!! We camped at Lake Havasu State Park in a Motorhome.

Crystal Cove State Park - Moro Campground, Laguna Beach, California

Date of Stay: October, 2015 - $76.00
Overall Rating:      

There's a big range of quality from one park employee to another. Some were great; others were total control freak jerks. I guess if you can't get a job as a prison guard, then you apply to work as a park ranger so that you can boss people around. The campground is fairly high on a bluff. Landscaping is natural scrub chaparral, beautiful but no shade really. The campsites are gravel and are absolutely huge. They are mostly level, but bring blocks or have a leveling system. About half of the campground has water and power; the other half does not. There are water views from many of the sites. The beach is nearby, but it's a good half mile down a steep hill, so you might want to drive. Wifi is available, but not guaranteed. It worked fine for us most of the time. We camped at Crystal Cove State Park - Moro Campground in a Motorhome.

Chula Vista RV Resort, Chula Vista, California

Date of Stay: October, 2015 - $78.00
Overall Rating:      

Highly developed park - lots of cement. Landscaping is groomed and groomed and groomed. Park is immaculate. There are picnic areas, meeting rooms, a beautiful pool and hot tub complex. There's some cute functions like happy hour and other hokey yet friendly get togethers. There are supposed to be water aerobics class, but nobody was there either day when we showed up. Location is right next to the San Diego Bay park, which gives you lots of walking possibilities. Unfortunately there is also a lot of noise from the public park, lots of loud stereos with heavy bass. You are also close to the marina, a pretty good restaurant and more walking. There seemed to be more than average incompetent and inconsiderate RV drivers who blocked your site getting into theirs, ran over the flower beds, etc. We camped at Chula Vista RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Golden Shore RV Resort, Long Beach, California

Date of Stay: October, 2015 - $50.00
Overall Rating:      

This park is in an urban area right next to the Long Beach Convention Center. Despite that, it has a nice vibe that is very comfortable. Sites are fairly tight, but fine. There is landscaping to make things pretty. There's a nice pool and hot tub, a little store, horseshoes, and shuffleboard. It's a fairly short walk to the Catalina Express or a dozen good restaurants. It is also right on the waterfront, a bit of a jog from the bay. We camped at Golden Shore RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Santa Cruz Redwoods RV Resort , Felton, California

Date of Stay: July, 2015 - $64.00
Overall Rating:      

Beautiful park in a gorgeous redwood forest. Small tight sites that are not always level. There is almost no cell phone reception and wifi is not reliable except for the in very middle of the night. There are small children driving around on battery powered cars and scooters, utilizing the same space as the 40 foot double axle class A motor homes. We left after one night because of the impossibility of communication with the outside world and the noise of the powered scooters. We camped at Santa Cruz Redwoods RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Pelican Point RV Park, Half Moon Bay, California

Date of Stay: July, 2015 - $53.00
Overall Rating:      

Great location just a stone's throw to the beach. Sites were paved pad with grass/dirt under the picnic table. Average level of maintenance at best. Lots of long term residents, some grouchy. First night was very noisy with lots of people drinking and talking loudly. The people next to us had at least a dozen people in their site. Next two nights were quieter and management enforced the curfew after we complained. Wifi was $5 per night and worked well (it was worth the $5). Laundry facilities were functional and reasonable. We grew to like this place by the 2nd day. Other choices in town have more traffic noise and don't take reservations; the bar is low. We camped at Pelican Point RV Park in a Motorhome.

Pomo RV Park & Campground, Fort Bragg, California

Date of Stay: July, 2015 - $45.00
Overall Rating:      

Wonderful campground - looks like the old fashioned campground that I remembered as a kid. Big sites with tall shrubs between make for lots of privacy. Paved road and clean graveled sites. Great utilities (except that wifi wasn't all that good). Immaculate laundry room, a grassy field for kids and dogs to play. Propane available for $2 a gallon and wood available at really reasonable prices. Nice people too. Pretty much everything that you want a campground to be. Note that we have Verizon and cell reception in this part of town is half a bar. We camped at Pomo RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

located at the south end of the town of Ft. Bragg. If you need cell reception, you can get something that works in town. Lots to do in the area - great beaches, the Skunk train, wonderful walking trails, etc. Lots of good restaurants and shopping in the area!

Bodega Bay RV Park, Bodega Bay, California

Date of Stay: July, 2015 - $69.00
Overall Rating:      

Sites are of medium size, not that private, not much shrubbery between sites. Park is clean and well maintained. Location is quite nice; it's about a mile to the beach and backs to the prettier (but no hookups) state park campground. Wifi was pretty iffy. There's some bocce ball games, bean bag toss, a dog area. The restaurant in the front parking lot is pretty good and is certainly convenient. We camped at Bodega Bay RV Park in a Motorhome.

Morro Strand State Beach, Morro Bay, California

Date of Stay: November, 2014 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

This campground is in a stunning setting, behind shallow dunes right on the beach! The campground is kind of basic, But the state is currently upgrading the campground and installing 55 sites with full hookups. Grading work has already begun and hopefully the state will do a good job. This place could be dynamite! We camped at Morro Strand State Beach in a Motorhome.

Cypress Morro Bay RV & MHP, Morro Bay, California

Date of Stay: June, 2013 - $35.00
Overall Rating:      

This park is in a fantastic location. The front four RV spots on Main Street are noisier, but not bad. The back spots are quiet. The park is clean, well maintained, attracts a respectable clientele, and has friendly and supportive owners. The walk to the Embarcadero is less than five minutes and walk to downtown is less than two. WiFi and cable are excellent. Don't worry much about the lack of 50 amp because Morro Bay is rarely very warm. The laundry room is immaculate and is fairly priced. We camped at Cypress Morro Bay RV & MHP in a Motorhome.

Little Rock North / Jct. I-40 KOA, North Little Rock, Arkansas

Date of Stay: May, 2013 - $38.00
Overall Rating:      

We pulled in and it appeared to be a very attractive park - nicely laid out with great trees. The positives stopped there when we realized that the park was jammed up right against the freeway. We pulled into our spot (a pull thru) easily enough and then realized that there was an enormous pothole at the front right-hand side of the spot. We had to talk to staff 4-5 times before they would fill it, which was going to be necessary for us to get out of the site two days later. The swimming pool was not filled with water. The KOA web site say that the pool opens April 13th and this was May 13, so we were not happy. Then we went to take a shower and there was no water pressure, because now they are filling the pool. They were filling the pool during the day when people need water and they hadn't notified anyone. We asked them to stop the pool filling so that we could do laundry and they grudgingly agreed for awhile. This campground suffers from lack of planning and grouchy staff. And, for the first time in 8 months of travel, the cable TV was terribly fuzzy and wasn't usable. We camped at Little Rock North / Jct. I-40 KOA in a Motorhome.

Greensboro KOA, Greensboro, North Carolina

Date of Stay: May, 2013 - $36.00
Overall Rating:      

This campground is right next to and level with the freeway. It is really really loud. That being said, there aren't many campgrounds in this area - so we stayed here. It was a decent place for one night. Some of the sites are much better than others. There are some larger and more level sites at the back. Some of the sites in the front and middle are not even close to level. We found a site that worked for us for the one night we were there. We didn't use the bathrooms, showers, or laundry. Management was friendly and helpful. We camped at Greensboro KOA in a Motorhome.

Asheville West KOA, Candler, North Carolina

Date of Stay: May, 2013 - $38.00
Overall Rating:      

Sites are in two loops - a pull thru loop and a backup loop. The pull thru loop has cable and larger sites. We were in the pull thru loop and most sites were level, decently spaced, and had good road access. Both the internet and the cable worked very well. Management was extremely friendly and helpful. The campground was clean and well maintained. The only real negative is that the freeway is very close and very loud. We camped at Asheville West KOA in a Motorhome.
