Leander / NW Austin KOA, Leander, Texas

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

This is a very nice, small, quiet, rural park. No trains nearby, no road noise, no airports. Next door and across the road are all open fields. We had a large pull-thru site for a five-night stay. We camped at Leander / NW Austin KOA in a Motorhome.

If you are traveling into Austin, be aware of the toll road freeways. We chose the "pay-by-mail" option which avoided the need to visit an office to pick up a tag; six weeks later we are still waiting for them to bill our address in another state. We called and they said it takes quite a while.

Travelers World RV Resort, San Antonio, Texas

Date of Stay: March, 2017 - $42.00
Overall Rating:      

Extremely convenient location, even if the neighborhood is not very pretty. The greatest thing is nearby access to the Riverwalk, miles of paved path beside the San Antonio River where you can bike, walk, jog, fish, birdwatch, and even kayak. There is a bus stop across the street that takes you to downtown. This park has a community feel; many residents are "winter Texans" who spend several months here each year. They were very friendly; when we pulled in we were welcomed by many of them and subsequently invited to a potluck, a waffle breakfast, and a golf outing. There is a small pool and a "warm tub", it was only about 98 degrees so not really a hot tub. My one complaint is noise; there is a nearby train which passes through at all hours of the day and night and blows its horn for literally five minutes solid. We would stay here again just to revisit the wonderful neighbors. We camped at Travelers World RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Don't miss The Saga, a night-time laser projection show at San Fernando Cathedral. The Taqueria across the street has a good solid dinner. If you value time over money, skip the half-hour bus ride and drive 10 minutes to pay parking lots downtown.

Hidden Valley RV Park, Del Rio, Texas

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

I can't say enough good things about this park. If you're looking for a resort with complete facilities, then this may not be your cup of tea; but if you are self-contained and like a small park in a quiet, rural setting with grass, trees, birds, deer, and personal service, this is the place. We stayed three nights and I wish we could have stayed longer. Camp hosts have been making upgrades to the park, such as improved wifi, in the past year. They were incredibly friendly and helpful. The only problem for us was satellite reception among the mature trees; hosts helped us find the one site which would work. My husband inadvertently left behind his self-assembled water filter, and before we even realized it Hostshad emailed us and had the filter disassembled and ready to ship to wherever we asked. When we made our reservation, Kathy made sure to tell us "don't follow Google", giving us specific directions for a big rig to avoid a difficult turn. Just a beautiful experience all around, would definitely stay here again. We camped at Hidden Valley RV Park in a Motorhome.

Maverick Ranch RV Park at Lajitas Resort, Lajitas, Texas

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

First, the good. For ambiance, I give this park a "10". It is in a beautiful setting, well-kept even though the trees and grass are sparse; this is, after all, a severe desert area. They are a "dark nights" park, asking that you turn off outside lighting at 9 p.m. I don't think I've seen that many stars in 50 years! There is a LOT of open space between paired sites. My husband was concerned about being near some dumpsters, but theirs have plastic tops so there is no banging noise at all. There are two dog-walking areas with poop-bag dispensers. AT&T cell service good. If you don't want to boondock in the national park, this is really the nicest place nearby. Now for the not-so-good. #1: As another reviewer mentioned, it is impossible to reach them by phone and they don't reply to messages. I was very close to changing our entire itinerary until I was able to get a confirmed reservation through RoverPass. #2: This park assigns specific spaces at reservation time, so if you want to stay longer the only option is to move. I've only encountered this kind of inflexibility at one other park and it really annoys me. If you have a space for me to move to, then just put the incoming rig there - it's not rocket science! #3 : A surge protector is HIGHLY recommended for this park; ours tripped almost every night. If we hadn't had one, our DVR would probably be fried. #4: wifi was pathetic, even by RV park standards. We camped at Maverick Ranch RV Park at Lajitas Resort in a Motorhome.

Desert Gold RV Resort, Brenda, Arizona

Date of Stay: February, 2017 - $31.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a beautiful resort away from town and the freeway. For our one night, we had a convenient if somewhat narrow pull-thru near the office. Staff was first-rate. Sites are gravel with a concrete patio. With no nearby city lights, the stars at night took my breath away. I would definitely go here again. We camped at Desert Gold RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Desert Willow RV Resort, Hesperia, California

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

This was a very good place for a one-night stay. They have a number of pull-thru spaces right behind the office for overnighters. Our site was a little short for our 40' plus toad, but we made it work, and it was very convenient for pulling out again in the morning. We arrived after closing time so the office left a packet for us on the door. They didn't even require prepayment, just left a form for us to fill out and trusted us to pay. The RV park is behind a security gate and they gave us a temporary code to get in. Very close to the freeway and adjacent to fuel stops. Quiet on the one night we spent. We camped at Desert Willow RV Resort in a Motorhome.

American RV Resort, Albuquerque, New Mexico

Date of Stay: May, 2015 - $36.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed for two nights in a pull-through in the "new" section. Site was a spacious, level concrete pad. Wi-Fi was good. Freeway noise from I-40 was constant but bearable. Despite what others have said, we did not find this park to be pet-friendly as they do not allow any kind of outside kennel or cage. We travel with four cats and for litter boxes we depend on an outside cage that attaches to our slideout. It is covered with black screening, is above the ground, and does not encroach on the neighbors. Had we known about this rule, we would not have stayed here and we will not return. We camped at American RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Boot Hill RV Resort, Alamogordo, New Mexico

Date of Stay: May, 2015 - $26.00
Overall Rating:      

From what we saw, this is the best park in the area. We had a long, level, gravel pullthru; the entire lot is gravel, no trees or grass, but well-maintained. An employee came around daily watering the lot to keep down dust. The highway is nearby and there was some noise, but it wasn't too bad. Thank you to the other reviewer who mentioned there is an extra charge to use your own washer here, so I was prepared. The one problem here is the WiFi, which is apparently run by hamster wheel. It was like being back on dial-up but trying to access today's complicated websites. Some sites would simply never load at all. We camped at Boot Hill RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Carlsbad KOA, Carlsbad, New Mexico

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

The park itself is beautiful, in a lovely rural area near an orchard, big sites with grass, rabbits running around, a large staff that is friendly and helpful, nightly delicious barbecues. That said...we had a very unpleasant experience and had to leave early. When we checked in and I heard "your spot is right next to the pool", I specifically mentioned we'd rather be away from the pool to avoid noise. "Oh, there's never any noise at the pool," I was told. Our first night, a Sunday, was quiet and pleasant. The next day, after returning to camp, we saw a school bus parked in the lot and discovered that a couple of dozen kids of various ages were using the pool, occupying the two cabins next to the pool, and a large tent was set up on the lawns. The kids whooped and screamed and yelled for four solid hours, until at 10 p.m. my husband finally went over and told them to quiet down. There didn't seem to be anyone in charge of them. The park has a rule of no more than 8 people per site, and where the tent was set up clearly violated that rule. After that terrible evening, when we learned the kids were staying, we left even though we had paid for another night. We camped at Carlsbad KOA in a Motorhome.

Santa Fe Skies RV Park, Santa Fe, New Mexico

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

We really enjoyed this park because of its rural setting, quiet, and 360-degree view. It may not be paved or manicured, but it's just the kind of place we like. Sites are gravel with paved patios. The sites are terraced down (or up) a slight hill. We had a nice end spot away from the office so it was very quiet. It was never full while we were here, in fact we only had a next-door neighbor for about three of our eight nights. Wifi was reliable and fast. We would definitely stay here again.

Mesa Verde RV Resort, Mancos, Colorado

Date of Stay: April, 2015 - $31.00
Overall Rating:      

This park is just off highway 160 to Durango, so there is some road noise, but it wasn't intrusive. Other than that, this is one of the most peaceful parks we've been in. The sites are all well-maintained gravel. There was not much in-and-out when we stayed here so it was very, very quiet; no children, no barking dogs. We had one of the five giant pull-through sites (#10 thru 14) which have no vegetation, but they are very wide, over 100 feet long, and terraced up a hillside. Other sites are under a pleasant canopy of trees. The park is less than a mile from the exit for Mesa Verde National Park. There is a small pool which wasn't open yet - too cold until June - and two above-ground hot tubs which looked a bit cloudy, so we didn't use them. There are communal propane BBQ's and fire pits on a patio beside the pool, very nice. Wi-fi was reliable and fast. We would stay here again. We camped at Mesa Verde RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Portal RV Resort and Campground, Moab, Utah

Date of Stay: April, 2015 - $55.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed in both the resort section and in the campground section. The resort section is beautiful and spacious, with wide concrete pads, nice landscaping, and a Koi (Fish) pond in the center. The pool and spa are great. The showers in the poolhouse are larger than my house! Be sure to get reservations as far in advance as possible for this section as repeat customers seem to get priority and many stay for several weeks. Also beware of four premiun spaces which are right up against "casitas" -- three-story condos that are being developed over former RV spaces. The southern sky is completely blocked in these spaces so no satellite.

The "campground" section is all gravel and spaces are close together. This area was very transient and somewhat noisy while we were there. We did not use the restrooms or showers there. We had no problem getting our 41' coach into either section, although some of the campground spaces are much smaller. We looked at several other RV parks in Moab and Portal is probably the best place in town, well-run and very convenient to all the parks. We camped at Portal RV Resort and Campground in a Motorhome.

The View Campground, Monument Valley, Utah

Date of Stay: April, 2015 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

The value of this park is in the location and the views; otherwise it's just an expensive parking lot. There are no hookups and no amenities other than bathrooms. The RV campground is a bare gravel lot with 30 level pull-thru sites marked off by small markers and aluminum picnic tables. Sites were adequately large for our 40' coach as long as we parked our toad behind the picnic table. It was confusing about which direction to pull into the sites. We followed the lead of the only rig there, as did others after us, and later learned we were all facing the wrong way! The showers are adequate if spartan, although in the women's bath they drain slowly and tend to overflow. The park was almost deserted while we were here; there were never more than ten rigs in the RV section. It is very dusty and dirty, especially when high winds kick up the red soil, so plan to wash your rig and car after camping here. The park has recently added a dump station and there are electrical boxes which seem to indicate plans to add hookups sometime in the future. We camped at The View Campground in a Motorhome.

You can drive the park loop in any car, despite some people's claims you need 4WD. We drove it in a low-clearance Ford C-max, just going slowly over the ruts. We also took a nice tour of some off-limits areas with a Navajo guide from Majestic tours, it's the only way to see the arches like Eye of the Sun.

Our second stay here in five years. Campground is spacious and well-kept and was mostly very quiet. Had no trouble fitting our 40' plus toad into the site. Beautiful views of Lake Powell.

LVM Resort, Las Vegas, Nevada

Date of Stay: March, 2015 - $120.00
Overall Rating:      

This is the Ritz-Carlton of RV resorts. We had a premium improved site for a week, and then extended for five more days in an unimproved site. The only reason I didn't give it a "10" is because of airplane noise. The resort is about a mile or so west of the landing pattern for the Vegas airport. Depending on the winds, the noise can sometimes be loud and unrelenting. I was awakened more than once before six a.m. by jet noise. We camped at LVM Resort in a Motorhome.
