Kingman KOA, Kingman, Arizona

Date of Stay: February, 2007 - $34.00
Overall Rating:      

Not sure why this park has gotten some bad reviews. I found it to be one of the better KOAs. There were privacy bushes between most sites, nice landscaping and activity areas, and good wifi and cable. Restrooms/showers were clean and well-maintained. Staff was courteous and competent. Not too far from the interstate, yet far enough not to hear any traffic noise. All and all, a nice place! We camped at Kingman KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Holbrook / Petrified Forest KOA, Holbrook, Arizona

Date of Stay: February, 2007 - $33.00
Overall Rating:      

Wonderful owners-- very friendly and helpful. Very clean, well-maintained park. Good wifi and cable TV. Also, the town of Holbrook has lots of fun stuff to see with Rte. 66 attractions as well as Petrified Forest Natl Pk. Only slight drawback to this KOA is that it's on a hill overlooking the interstate, so noise might an issue if you don't have a well-insulated trailer (or if you want to sleep with windows open). It didn't bother me much, so I give this KOA a high rating! We camped at Holbrook / Petrified Forest KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Townsend / Great Smokies KOA, Townsend, Tennessee

Date of Stay: October, 2006 - $35.00
Overall Rating:      

Beautiful park with lots of trees and a gorgeous river. This park has it all. There's a "big RV" side with many pull-thru sites, as well as a more natural, rustic side nicer for pop-ups, truck campers, and tents (many with water & electric). Wi-fi worked at site, but sometimes got overloaded in the evening. Facilities are spotless and staff is exceptionally friendly and service-oriented. I'll be back! We camped at Townsend / Great Smokies KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Ridgway State Park, Ridgway, Colorado

Date of Stay: September, 2006 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

A State Park campground with RV Park amenities! Every site I saw had concrete or wood deck dining pads as well as asphalt drives. Most sites are handicap accessible and have electric or full hookups. Many pull-thru sites. The shower/bath houses were newer and quite clean. They even had a large coin laundry room that had a sink for washing dishes as well as vending machines. The park is in arid foothills. There is a lower loop close to the boat launch that is rather open/exposed. The upper loop is on top of a foothill and has great views of the lake and San Juan Mtn range plus more short/squatty pine trees for a tad bit more privacy and wind protection. Great location to explore the northern portions of the San Juan scenic loop and not too far from Montrose if you need some city conveniences. We camped at Ridgway State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Lake Superior Provincial Park - Agawa Bay Campground, Wawa, Ontario

Date of Stay: July, 2006 - $24.00
Overall Rating:      

Terrific sandy beach campground on Lake Superior with fantastic sunsets! All sites are shaded by tall pine trees, but there is very little ground cover so minimal privacy between sites. While some sites might be accessible by bigger rigs, most are too small. Great facilities, including a new, modern visitor's center. Dogs are prohibited from the main beach in front of the campsites, but there is a nice section of sandy beach directly north of the campsites that allows dogs. If camping in a tent or tent trailer, traffic noise may be an issue as the Trans-Canada highway borders the east side of the campground. We camped at Lake Superior Provincial Park - Agawa Bay Campground in a Tent Trailer.

Neys Provincial Park, Marathon, Ontario

Date of Stay: July, 2006 - $24.00
Overall Rating:      

Park is on a beautiful section of shoreline of Lake Superior, bounded on the west by the gorgeous Little Pic river. Sites in the A section have nice views of Superior and are mostly for larger rigs. Electric sites in the other loops are mostly good, but some sites are small. Most have good privacy, though. The only drawback to this park is that the cross-country railway runs along the border of the park and train noise can be heard occasionally. We camped at Neys Provincial Park in a Tent Trailer.

Sleeping Giant Provincial Park, Pass Lake, Ontario

Date of Stay: July, 2006 - $24.00
Overall Rating:      

The loop with electric sites is fantastic -- most are very large sites with excellent privacy, and half are right on the shore of Marie Louise Lake. Very quiet at night with great skies for stargazing. We camped at Sleeping Giant Provincial Park in a Tent Trailer.

Wyalusing State Park, Bagley, Wisconsin

Date of Stay: October, 2005 - $15.00
Overall Rating:      

Wonderful park on top of high bluffs overlooking the confluence of the Wisconsin and Mississippi rivers. Most of the Wisconsin Ridge sites have direct blufftop views of the river, however, many sites are small and require tight turns to get to so be careful with bigger rigs. The Homestead sites are at the edge of a forest overlooking prairie land. Sites here are usually larger and more private. While the campground facilities are in-line with other Wisconsin state parks (slightly towards the rustic side), the park itself offers lots to see and do, particularly a fantastic canoe route in the wetlands area along the Mississippi, as well as nice hiking and biking opportunities along the bluffs. We camped at Wyalusing State Park in a Tent Trailer.

Mirror Lake State Park, Baraboo, Wisconsin

Date of Stay: May, 2005 - $15.00
Overall Rating:      

Very nice state park on a beautiful lake, conveniently located near all the Wisconsin Dells attractions. Close to the highway, but far enough away to not hear it from most sites. Camping is typical of Wisconsin state parks (sufficient amenities such as showers & electric, but leaning towards the rustic side). Many sites are located in a pine forest and some offer lake views. Good for most tent trailers and RVs, but some big rigs might have problems getting around some of the loops. The lake is fantastic for canoeing/kayaking-- especially into the canyoned arm just across from the boat landing. Rental boats are available at the concession stand. There's also a nice picnic area and beach. We camped at Mirror Lake State Park in a Tent Trailer.

Penninsula State Park, Fish Creek, Wisconsin

Date of Stay: September, 2004 - $15.00
Overall Rating:      

Very large park on the western side of Door County peninsula. 4 main campgrounds offer a good variety of camping experiences, from smaller tent sites to large electric sites, and many in-between. Many are situated in the forest with good shade cover and privacy. The park itself is terrific for bike riding, hiking, and walking along the pebble beach. Conveniently located near Fish Creek where you can partake in the traditional Door County fish boil dinners at many of the local restaurants or browse the many interesting shops for nicknacks. We camped at Penninsula State Park in a Tent Trailer.
