Rio Grande Village RV Campground--Full Hookups , Big Bend National Park, Texas

Date of Stay: February, 2016 - $36.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed here for a week to explore the east side of Big Bend National Park. Considering the place is little more than a parking lot, I was surprised we enjoyed it as much as we did, but then we spent most of the daytime hours out and about. We appreciated having electricity as we often needed the A/C with the temps rising to the high 80's on several days. We were told to park our 40-foot class A crosswise in site 25 and take the two car parking spots adjacent to it as well; this gave us a lot of private space in the shade on the hook-ups side of the rig and seems to be the norm for big rigs staying here. This site has the advantage that if you position your rig right, you can get the wi-fi signal from the campground store. There is a two-pump service station at the store -- both gas and diesel are available. Propane is also available, but during our stay it was limited to certain days when an appropriately-trained person was on duty; we didn't need to top off, so it wasn't an isssue, but inquire on arrival if you need propane. Laundry and bathroom/shower open 23 hours a day ... didn't need to use them, but lots of people were using them and we heard no complaints. The nature trail hike from the non-hookups campground is lovely and makes a good spot for sunsets. We camped at Rio Grande Village RV Campground--Full Hookups in a Motorhome.

Seminole Canyon State Park, Comstock, Texas

Date of Stay: February, 2016 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

We loved our stay here. The only thing that would have made it better would have been to have a sewer hook-up so we could stay longer. We stayed in a very spacious W/E site on the ridge with expansive views in every direction. Our site was across from the bath house, making it very convenient to use the shower facilities. The three-star for cleanliness is for the bath house. Can't speak to the toilets, but the showers at a minimum looked dingy ... perhaps because of the dim lighting. They were decent enough to use. The shower area, with two stalls would benefit from the addition of two curtains to give the occupants more privacy in the changing area ... very odd set up. We would definitely stay here again. Wi-fi available near the bath house and at the Visitor Center. We camped at Seminole Canyon State Park in a Motorhome.

Green Caye RV Park, Dickinson, Texas

Date of Stay: January, 2016 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed here for its convenience to NASA and the Port of Houston. Some of the back-in sites in the rear are more spacious, but we opted for a drive-in site at the front end of the park ... not sardine-can-packed, but fairly narrow ... we've been in parks where it was far tighter. Enough space for a picnic table and a couple of chairs on a concrete patio on which the adjacent site's utilities are also situated. The clientele is a mix of resident RVers and transients ... more of the latter than the former. Most sites are tidy, but there are quite a few strewn about with the belongings of the long-term residents in an unappealing way. Trash is collected from frequently spaced spots with white picket fences around them. The problem is that although the sign says bagged trash only, we saw stuff that wasn't bagged ... pizza boxes, and such. While this is not a destination RV park, we would stay here again if its location fit in with our future plans in the area. Beautiful sunrises over the golf course. We camped at Green Caye RV Park in a Motorhome.

Galveston Island State Park, Galveston, Texas

Date of Stay: January, 2016 - $21.00
Overall Rating:      

We recently stayed a week at a water/electric site on the beachside. We were in the first loop, which has a brand new bathhouse/toilet facility. (Of the three loops here, campers in the middle loop have to use the facilities in the first or third loop.) Our site was just off the path to the beach, which was nice. The sites here may be prone to flooding/standing water if the ground is already saturated from heavy rains. This happened to us one day, but the park crew were quick to come around with portable sump pumps to divert the water, so it wasn't a big problem. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Galveston Island State Park in a Motorhome.

Northlake Village RV Park, Northlake, Texas

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

We stayed here two nights to visit friends living nearby. It's a big RV park with a mix of resident and transients. We did not use any of the facilities as we were with our friends except when we returned to sleep in the rig. Verify that you are getting the type of site you have reserved before paying the balance owed. Sites are gravel; ours had a small patio (not all do); no grill or picnic table either. The road to the campground is narrow and could use repaving, but roads within the campground are OK even with the tow vehicle hooked up. Our site was not level even though we were told it was if we pulled all the way back. We found it to slope towards the front end. We camped at Northlake Village RV Park in a Motorhome.

Deer Crossing RV Park, Ruidoso, New Mexico

Date of Stay: July, 2015 - $16.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed one month at this 50+ senior campground; 16 miles from the nearest town (Ruidoso) with shopping, groceries, restaurants and other amenities. We enjoyed the very quiet atmosphere as it was just the place we were looking for to rest for a while. It's probably not the place for those who are unable to entertain themselves, though there are opportunities for sightseeing day trips in the area. Extensive collection of DVDs in the clubhouse, with a picnic area outside where those staying at the park can socialize. The two end sites are the most spacious, and well worth the $50 upcharge on the monthly rate. The remaining sites reasonably spaced apart. A picnic table and grill are at each site. The hosts -- Denise and Roy -- are very friendly and helpful, and work all day everyday to maintain clean and manicured grounds. If unused to drinking well water, bring bottled water unless you're set up to filter the water from the tap. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Deer Crossing RV Park in a Motorhome.

Santa Fe Skies RV Park, Santa Fe, New Mexico

Date of Stay: July, 2015 - $39.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed here five nights while exploring the Santa Fe area. Not much to do in the immediate vicinity that we could see. The campground is about 20 minutes south of Santa Fe, and about 10 minutes from an open air museum that we really enjoyed visiting. We were assigned a site in the "resident's loop" and were disappointed at first. But the site grew on us and we would definitely return and perhaps even ask for the same site. We had to park close to the concrete patio to get level, but even then had plenty of room on the spacious patio. We camped at Santa Fe Skies RV Park in a Motorhome.

Amarillo Ranch RV Park, Amarillo, Texas

Date of Stay: June, 2015 - $33.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed here overnight. Long gravel site; pull-through, which was great for an overnight stay as we didn't have to unhook the towed vehicle. Website describes the sites as spacious. Perhaps that's true compared to some campgrounds, but rigs in our section were packed in pretty tight. Did not wander around the campground, so I can't speak to the other loops. Didn't really matter as we were here for one night. The people in the office were very friendly, and we were escorted to our site by a golf cart. There was a picnic table on the site, but it was too windy to avail ourselves of it. We camped at Amarillo Ranch RV Park in a Motorhome.

Shady Oaks Cabins and RV Park, Fairfield, Texas

Date of Stay: June, 2015 - $35.00
Overall Rating:      

We used this campground as an overnight stop. Wasn't expecting much; didn't get much, but served it's purpose quite well. The price was a little on the high side. After being parked in a maintenance facility with just an electric hook-up, we appreciated having water and sewer, and a quiet campground for a change of pace. Sites aren't especially level, but we had no problems leveling with our jacks. Had called in advance for availability. Plenty of empty spaces. I think we were the only transients in the RV Park. The campground manager I spoke with told us all the sites were back-in, so no surprise there, and it wasn't a biggie to unhook the toad. We camped at Shady Oaks Cabins and RV Park in a Motorhome.

Beaver Lake Campground, Quincy, Florida

Overall Rating:      

This was our second time staying at this campground this year; Passport America rate, cash only. Convenient for an overnight stay off I-10. (We stayed in a pull through -- site 4 behind the gas station.) Easy access from freeway; we were not bothered by any traffic noise. Essentially a big field rimmed on two sides with campsites. We would stay here again for an overnight stop. We camped at Beaver Lake Campground in a Motorhome.

Americamps RV Resort (formerly Richmond North / Americamps KOA), Ashland, Virginia

Date of Stay: June, 2013 - $45.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed at this campground for three nights. Our primary reason for being in the area was to have work done at the RV Service of Virginia, which is three miles from this campground. We opted for a gravel site in Loop E, which is further from the freeway from where the concrete pad sites are located, and thus not as much traffic noise from the freeway. The campground is heavily treed, but we had no problems getting into our pull-through site. The staff in the office were friendly and helpful, and refunded our last night's fee when we opted to leave a day early. There is a conveniently located truck stop before the turn to Air Park Road for those needing to top-off on diesel. If we're in the area again, we would stay here. We camped at Americamps RV Resort (formerly Richmond North / Americamps KOA) in a Motorhome.

Greensboro KOA, Greensboro, North Carolina

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

Stayed O/N en route from SC to VA via I-85. (Only campground in the area that is close to the freeway.) Sites are tight, but decent enough for an O/N stay, although the coach next to us was obviously set up for a long stay. We were unable to get level with our onboard leveling system. Tried two sites, and decided to just put the front tires on blocks and leave it at that. Free Wi-Fi available, but iffy in the upper section where we were located. This section is the farthest from the freeway and therefore quiet (no traffic noise could be heard inside the coach). Would stay here again if we are in the area and ready to get off the road for the day. We camped at Greensboro KOA in a Motorhome.

Eastbank COE, Bainbridge, Georgia

Date of Stay: May, 2013 - $22.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed here in a lakefront site for two weeks in May. Loved the entire experience and the only reason we're not rating it a 10 is the lack of sewer hook-ups. Normally we don't consider this a problem, but with the extreme high temps we experienced off and on throughout our stay, it would have been nice to be able to dump our tanks every few days. Otherwise, we had a fantastic, quiet stay. Even though the campground was at full occupancy over the Memorial Day long weekend, it was quiet. There are no playgrounds or other amenities for kids, and swimming in the lake is not a good idea because of the alligators. This might have contributed to a quieter holiday weekend experience since there were few families with kids. The campground has an acknowledged ant problem (Argentine ants), but we had read about this and went prepared. We sprayed anything that touched the ground and also created a perimeter around the site with bait granules. Did not have any problems with ants on the pad. A neighboring site, though they sprayed, was not as lucky and their coach was invaded by ants. A contributing factor to their problem might have been that they had large get-togethers with other campers at their site that involved careless cooking and eating outside. Nearest town is Chatahoochee, FL. Basic groceries available in this town, but expensive. Bainbridge, GA and Quincy and Marianna, FL are twenty to thirty miles away and offer plentiful stores and restaurants for those needing a break from the campground. We would stay here again. We camped at Eastbank COE in a Motorhome.

Buccaneer State Park, Waveland, Mississippi

Date of Stay: April, 2013 - $24.00
Overall Rating:      

While the campground is great, with some really nicely spaced sites, we probably won't stay here again unless we happen to be in the area when the gnats aren't biting. Still, I have to give them kudos for how well they came back after damaging hurricanes like Katrina, and more recently, Isaac. Rebuilding of some of the amenities were ongoing, but it did not impact our stay. We would have rated this campground much higher if not for the biting gnats we encountered during our two-week stay in April. We were unable to take full advantage of our great site because it was near impossible to sit outside. Within the first few days, my husband was bit so bad that his arms and legs looked like he had chicken pox. Eventually, we managed to sit in our screened shelter for a few hours each day with the help of a couple of big fans we purchased from Wal-Mart to create a cross-breeze to keep the gnats at bay. Nice long stretches of beach within walking distance (might be a long walk for some), and a wide walking/biking path heads in the direction of Waveland along a stretch of the beach. The Sound may not be inviting to swim in for people used to Gulf waters, but the beach is great for walking. Bay St. Louis is well worth exploring; don't forget to check out the Katrina trees. Trains rumble by tooting their horns throughout the day. It didn't bother us, but might be a problem for some. We camped at Buccaneer State Park in a Motorhome.
