Fischers Lilly Park, Fort Pierre, South Dakota

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $15.00
Overall Rating:      

Looks like there has been a price increase since last year, but this is still a great value. The sites are good-sized, clean and well-cared for. The city workers came through several times a day when we were there to check on things. Some sites are on the river. All sites are first come, first served. Stays are limited to 14 days in a 30 day period. There is a boat ramp adjacent to the park for those who like to fish or go for a boat ride. We will definitely stay here again when visiting Fort Pierre. We camped at Fischers Lilly Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Colonial RV Park & Motel , Mandan, North Dakota

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a good place to stay for a few nights or longer. Our site was double-wide with sewer, water and 50 amp service. Several campers were in the campground on a long term basis, but they were friendly and quiet. Only negatives, might be that our site backed up to the street and there was debris behind our camper that had been thrown from the street. It would be nice if someone would clean it up from time to time. Also, although this campground is very quiet, I did hear traffic noise from the street next to the campground in the early morning hours (around 6 a.m.) The staff was excellent and accommodated our requests for 50 amp service without hesitation. We had no problem maneuvering our 32 foot 5th wheel to get into our site. We camped at Colonial RV Park & Motel in a Fifth Wheel.

West Pollock State Recreation Area, Mobridge, South Dakota

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $17.00
Overall Rating:      

Sites in this campground are large and well-spaced. Some have shade, while others do not. More than half the sites have a view of the lake. All sites have 50 amp electricity. Boat launch is paved and not too crowded if you want to go boating/fishing. Camp host is only here on weekends at best, so you are pretty much on your own if you need something. Verizon MiFi worked well for us as did Dish. AT&T cell coverage was pretty much non-existent. We will stay here again when we are fishing in South Dakota. We camped at West Pollock State Recreation Area in a Fifth Wheel.

Oahe Downstream Recreation Area, Pierre, South Dakota

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $19.00
Overall Rating:      

There are lots of activities to participate in at this campground. It's a really good spot for families with children. We were here just before July 4th and the place was packed. Even though the sites are large, the sites on the inner circle feel like they are too close together. We stayed here in 2013 in a site on the outside and liked it much better. Proximity to Pierre is a plus here. We were able to shop, go out to dinner and do laundry in town. Verizon MiFi, Dish and AT&T cell phone worked great. We will stay here again when stopping in Pierre. We camped at Oahe Downstream Recreation Area in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

We are on the road for months at a time, so we are always on the hunt for a good laundromat. If you are in the Pierre/Fort Pierre area and need to do laundry, I highly recommend Speedway Laundry in Fort Pierre. The very friendly owners keep the place spotless and the equipment is always in good working order. You can't find a better place to do laundry and the pricing is very competitive.

Tailrace Left Campground COE, Fort Thompson, South Dakota

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $9.00
Overall Rating:      

Having reviewed this park last June, I normally wouldn't review it again so soon. There has been one significant change in 2017, however. The sites are now reservable on recreation.gov. This is a new twist for this COE park and the campground is having more visitors than past years. They have also updated the children's play area and have added horse shoe pits. It is still one of our favorite parks and now it's even better. We will definitely keep coming here when we visit the Fort Thompson area. We camped at Tailrace Left Campground COE in a Fifth Wheel.

Super 8 Motel / R & R Campground & RV Park, Mitchell, South Dakota

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $18.00
Overall Rating:      

This campground was surprisingly quiet considering its proximity to Interstate 90. We expected lots of road noise, especially when we were trying to sleep, but there was none. Our site was 3 sites from the office. Not sure what it would be like if your site was closer to the highway. Sites were large enough for us to park our boat, 5th wheel and truck on, although we did have to unhook our truck. Overall, the sites were rather large for a commercial campground. Campers may use the pool at the Super 8, which is next to the campground. Hosts were friendly and helpful. Sites were clean. Our Dish satellite worked well on our site. Campground WiFi was fast and signal was strong. We'll stay here again when in MItchell. We camped at Super 8 Motel / R & R Campground & RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Montrose City Park / Pioneer Park, Montrose, South Dakota

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $15.00
Overall Rating:      

This is an excellent city campground near Interstate 90 in South Dakota. It's a great place for an overnight stop or for a longer stay. During the summer, your camping fee includes access to the city pool which is right next to the campground. All sites have both water and electricity. Our site was a pull-through long enough to accommodate our pick up truck, 32 foot 5th wheel and 18 foot boat with trailer without unhooking. If you are coming in without a reservation, check the board near the pay box before you select a site to see which sites are reserved. We camped at Montrose City Park / Pioneer Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Missouri Valley City Park, Missouri Valley, Iowa

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $15.00
Overall Rating:      

Great park to stay in, even with the trains. Actually, it appeared the trains did not run between 11pm and 6am as the train whistles were pretty much non-existent during those hours. Lots going on in this park with the little train you can ride on weekends, the city swimming pool a few steps away, picnic shelters, etc. The campsites, however, could use more shade as almost all sites are in full sun. We camped at Missouri Valley City Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Venango Park COE, Marquette, Kansas

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $9.00
Overall Rating:      

The sites here are very large and well-spaced out. There are a variety of site types around the park from no hookups to full hookups. Ours had water only. Our AT&T phone service, Verizon MiFi wireless and Dish TV all worked very well. The only reason I didn't rate this park a 10 was the service. We arrived on a day when there was no one working the entrance booth. A sign said the park attendant would come around and collect the fee. No one came that evening or the next morning by 9 am. We tried in vain to find someone to give our camp fee to, even stopping at the park attendant's site and knocking on the door. No one answered. We ended up going over to the Riverside COE campground and the wonderful lady in the information center called the Venango Park manager to find out what she should do to collect our fee. We will stay here again because the park is great, but hope we arrive on a day when the booth is being manned. We camped at Venango Park COE in a Fifth Wheel.

Playa Bonita Resort, Puerto Peñasco (Rocky Point), Sonora

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $24.00
Overall Rating:      

We have stayed here several times in the last few years. It's time to update my last review. WiFi is still "iffy", depending on the location of your site. This particular visit, we had no trouble at all with the WiFi. We did, however, have a problem with electricity. The electricity was too strong and it caused us to lose power on a couple of occasions. The site we had was adequate, but we did change from our original site because the first one was very tight. The staff was very obliging about us changing sites and were quick to let us have the site of our choice. The restaurant has undergone some changes, too. The margaritas are half the size they were when we first came here in 2015. They also have replaced the nice wood tables they had on the patio with cheaper plastic ones. That kind of diminishes the atmosphere of the place. The vendors who clean, wash, and wax campers still do a great job for a reasonable price. We camped at Playa Bonita Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

The Cove RV Resort (formerly Riviera RV Resort and Marina), Blythe, California

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

Staff was helpful, immediately finding us a new site when the original site assigned to us had electrical problems. The new site was quite large and gave our 50 lb. dog plenty of room to roam. Full timers kept their sites neat and clean, which always makes a place look better. Would stay here again if in the area. We camped at The Cove RV Resort (formerly Riviera RV Resort and Marina) in a Fifth Wheel.

Holbrook / Petrified Forest KOA, Holbrook, Arizona

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $46.00
Overall Rating:      

As with most KOAs the cost was a high for what you get. We normally don't stay at KOAs for this reason. The only exceptional thing about this park was the staff manning the office. They were very friendly, helpful and accommodating. We would stay here again because of them. The park itself was pretty ordinary. Everything worked and the site was adequate. We camped at Holbrook / Petrified Forest KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

The Reef RV Park, Puerto Peñasco (Rocky Point), Sonora

Date of Stay: April, 2017 - $26.00
Overall Rating:      

Stayed here for 3 nights to see what this park is like. The wind is very strong here as the campground is out in the open and there is nothing to shelter the area. At times, there is a lot of dust and sand in the air because of the wind. Sites here are more than adequately sized. We had no problem backing in and parking our vehicle beside our 5th wheel. Vendors who wash and wax camping units are a bit pricier than others in the area, so we chose not to take advantage of their service. WiFi, sewer, and electricity all worked very well and we had no issues with any of them. There is an excellent Italian restaurant adjoining the park. There is also a great bar/hamburger place next to the park as well. We camped at The Reef RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Sky City RV Park, Acoma, New Mexico

Date of Stay: October, 2016 - $17.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a great place to stop for a night or two when travelling across New Mexico. The service here is excellent. Everyone is friendly and helpful. Watch out if you are in the casino at shift change, though. Everything stops while one shift closes out and the new shift takes over. That is not a good time to need a ride to/from the casino. Otherwise, the service is very prompt. The sites are spacious and there is plenty of room for parking a vehicle and trailer. The food in the casino wasn't too great on Asian buffet night, but the items ordered from the menu looked good. We camped at Sky City RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Jack's Creek Campground, Santa Fe, New Mexico

Date of Stay: October, 2016 - $5.00
Overall Rating:      

This campground is actually located 21 miles north of Pecos NM on Highway 63 and Forest Road 555. The last 5 miles are on a one lane highway, but the road is wide and there are pull outs to make passing other vehicles easy. The campground host is wonderful. He will help you find a site if needed and will also let you hook up to the electricity on the second host site if it isn't being used. The forest setting is beautiful and campsites are large and well-spaced. Altitude is about 8800 feet, so the weather is cooler in the summer than it is at lower altitudes. We plan on coming here again when we pass through the area next year. We camped at Jack's Creek Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
