Cochise Terrace RV Resort, Benson, Arizona

Date of Stay: April, 2017 - $28.00
Overall Rating:      

A very quiet, nice campground out in the country, but an easy drive to Tucson. This time we were in the transient spaces (see our review from 12/15 for a writeup of the long term sites). All asphalt - access roads and sites. Long, mostly level pull thrus with adequate spacing between the sites and a single "shade" tree. Power ok, did not use the other utilities. Satellite access depends upon relationship between antenna and the shade tree. We had no access with a roof top antenna on the front of our rig. Rear mounted roof antennas would probably not have an issue and certainly portable antennas have no issues. They have expanded the campground wifi since last year with decent signal and adequate speed (of course this was out of season and the campground was nearly empty). Verizon was 3-4 bars with decent speed, TMobile was highly variable (0-4 bars) and slow speed. Can recycle on site with a full recycling center just north of town. Decent places to ride road bikes around the campground and in the subdivision behind. Also nice riding south on the highway (wide shoulders, light traffic). We will stay here again for an overnight or the winter. We camped at Cochise Terrace RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Hacienda RV Resort, Las Cruces, New Mexico

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

A very nice campground especially given it is in the desert southwest. Good asphalt access roads. Well maintained sites with gravel fines that are re-leveled after each use. Sites alternate with shared utility pedestals and view blocks on the patio side. Scattered trees in the campground (some of which need a bit of trimming for taller rigs). Very little highway and train noise. Power ok, water ok, sewer ok. Mostly no issue with satellite access. Campground wifi remains very sluggish. Verizon was 4 bars, but also very sluggish (probably due to the campground wifi driving people to the Verizon hotspot). TMobile was 3 bars with adequate speed. No recycling on site. Adequate road bike riding in the area. We will continue to stay here when in the area. We camped at Hacienda RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Zia RVillas , Hobbs, New Mexico

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

Narrow gravel access roads, but no issues for big rigs at least on the access roads. Gravel sites with struggling grass between some sites and small trees. No real thought to avoiding obstructions for big rigs - our pullthru site had only about 10' usable width between the pedastals on the left and a raised concrete patio on the right. Then a tree in the front took 1/3rd of the width of the site on the inside of the turn required to exit. This pullthru site was difficult to get into and impossible to get out except by backing out. Not all sites are this way, but care needs to be taken to ensure ingress and egress for a big rig. Somewhat level sites. Power ok, did not use other utilities. No problem with satellite access. Verizon 3 bars with ok speed, TMobile 0-2 bars (did not check speed). Did not check campground wifi. No recycle on site. Possible road bike riding adjacent to campground. We might overnight here again since the choices for a big rig in this neck of the woods are very limited. We camped at Zia RVillas in a Motorhome.

Buck Creek RV Park, Abilene, Texas

Date of Stay: April, 2017 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

A rather typical west Texas campground. Very quiet with no noticeable highway noise. Good gravel access roads. Long gravel pull thrus with good spacing between sites grass and a few trees but minimal shade. The gravel in sites could be wider and more level - we were hanging off both sides of site into the grass with a big rig. Overall very easy big rig access. Power sagged to 107-109v under load and it wasn't really hot, did not use other utilities. No problems with satellite access. Verizon 3 bards with adequate speed. TMobile 1 bar, did not check connection. Did not check campground wifi but ok signal strength. We'd stay here again for an overnight. We camped at Buck Creek RV Park in a Motorhome.

Bluebonnet Ridge RV Park, Terrell, Texas

Date of Stay: March, 2017 - $35.00
Overall Rating:      

A nice campground except for being next to I-20. It seemed to be very much louder than the last visit. An asphalt entry road (repaved since the construction of last year, so it's a lot less bumpy). Two lane gravel access roads (trees convert some of these to a single lane for taller rigs). Mix of pullthrus and backins surrounded by grass with trees at most sites providing shade opportunities while not generally presenting problems with satellite access. While a generally well maintained campground, they have made no improvement in dealing with the ruts. It can get very soggy with the rains resulting in ruts both on the gravel of the site and in the adjacent grass due to rigs running over the edges of the sites. They need to bring in gravel for the sites to deal with the ruts and cleanup the ruts adjacent to the sites. The ruts can make it somewhat challenging in places to be walking around the rig. The gravel of the sites is loose enough that we settled a lot even using large jack pads. The interior access roads are getting a fair number of potholes. Power ok, water 60psi, sewer ok, satellite access ok. Verizon was 2-3 bars with adequate to good speed. Tmobile was 4 bars with ok speed. Campground wifi had ok signal with variable speed - sometimes usable, sometimes not, occasionally not handing out an IP address. Soda can recycle on site. No good road bike riding adjacent to campground. Long wheelbase rigs do not come south on 429 to the campground (potential for hanging up on the railroad crossing at 80 and 429). We're presently rethinking our options for the metroplex and may come back. We camped at Bluebonnet Ridge RV Park in a Motorhome.

Sunrise RV Park, Texarkana, Arkansas

Date of Stay: March, 2017 - $34.00
Overall Rating:      

An OK overnight along I-30. Somewhat noisy given the adjacent interstate, truck stop, and railroad tracks. Loose gravel access roads (somewhat narrow at the entrance, could be difficult for two rigs to pass). Mostly level, loose gravel sites. No shade, but this may change as the trees mature. Power ok, did not use other utilities. No issue with satellite access. Campground wifi had good signal and decent speed. Verizon 3-4 bars and TMobile 1-2 bars, did not try for a connection on either. Did not see any recycling on site. No good road bike opportunities adjacent to campground. We will overnight here again. We camped at Sunrise RV Park in a Motorhome.

Downtown Riverside RV Park, North Little Rock, Arkansas

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

Well they've upgraded the parking lot now with concrete sites and it doesn't seem to be an improvement (see our review from 5/16). The campground (especially the front row) has a more crowded feeling to it than before. And the highway noise seemed to be worse (but that mostly dies down at night). It really has three main draws - the river, walking access to downtown, and the adjacent Arkansas River Trail for road bike riding. Access is via a relatively narrow opening in the seawall (good enough for two cars to pass, but we wouldn't want to try and pass another rig there). Single lane asphalt access road circles the sites. Three rows of sites - riverside is alternating pullin and backin with adequate space on patio side; center is alternating direction pull thrus which were occasionally doubled up during our stay; back row is alternating backins and pullins. All sites share utility pedestals. Power, water 40-50psi and very load dependent, sewer ok (no threads on sewer connection). Satellite access ok. Campground wifi good signal but sluggish at times. Verizon and TMobile both had strong signal and good speed. Only recycle is for cans. Excellent walking access to downtown Little Rock via the Clinton bridge. Lots of road bike trails. We will stay here again. We camped at Downtown Riverside RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tom Sawyer's Mississippi River Park, West Memphis, Arkansas

Date of Stay: March, 2017 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

Campground continues to be pretty much the same as past visits. Very laid back campground right on the banks of the Mississippi - our front window was perhaps 100' from the river. Great view of the river. The main access road is back to being bumpy, single lane mostly gravel access roads. No issues with big rig access although watch the blind hill crossing the levee - commercial traffic tends to zip right on thru and not pay much attention to the lanes. Lots of tows on the river (the primary draw of this campground) around the clock which can be somewhat noisy as can the the trains, but not an issue unless one is super sensitive to noise. Power, water, sewer ok. Wifi continues to be pretty much unusable. Verizon and Tmobile LTE 3 bars with decent signal strength. No recycling on site. No good access to bike trails from campground although the river trail across the Mississippi is now open. We will stay here again. We camped at Tom Sawyer's Mississippi River Park in a Motorhome.

Benchmark RV Park, Meridian, Mississippi

Date of Stay: March, 2017 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

A small, quiet campground good for overnight or a short stay. A slight bit of train noise - much less noticeable than before, but we're in a better insulated rig this time and near the front of the campground instead of the back. My notes from a stay in the back were "loud enough to feel it and hear the wheels of the cars". Gravel access roads with level concrete sites. Pullthrus long enough to avoid dropping toad although big rigs may find it easier to maneuver without the toad. Power ok (but did not load it), water 80psi, sewer ok. Satellite access ok on 2/3rds of the sites, problematic on the other 1/3rd (treeline to the south). No TMobile, Verizon was 3 bars with adequate speed. Campground wifi poor signal, intermittent connectivity, poor at best on speed. Can recycling on site. No good road bike riding adjacent to campground. We will stay here again. We camped at Benchmark RV Park in a Motorhome.

Camp Gulf, Miramar Beach, Florida

Date of Stay: February, 2017 - $38.00
Overall Rating:      

A very nice, white sand, walk-able beach with usually gentle surf, and walking distance to good food. Oh and there's a rather large campground next to it. The campground consists of a wide variety of sites - some with shade, some not. Sites may be concrete, pavers, sand, or a mix of these. Some have decent spacing, others are awning to awning. Some are pretty level others not (a lot depends upon the length of your rig as a lot of the sites slope for at least part of the length) - we saw multiple rigs with front wheels noticeably off the ground. The upshot is that you want to be very careful in site selection for a larger rig - the reservation system appears to factor in only total site length not how much is mostly level. Power ok, water variable from 30-50psi (pressure was highly dependent on surrounding usage), sewer ok. Satellite access depends on the site with sites closer to the beach the best (less shade). OK road bike riding in campground and along the sidewalks out on the main road with a decent bike trail on 30A about 15min away by car. The only recycling is cans. Supposedly they go through the trash at the landfill, but other campgrounds in the area had more recycling on site. Verizon 5 bars, usually good speed; Tmobile 2-3 bars, adequate speed. Campground wifi good signal, but lousy speed. We tried at all times of the day over a month and never got a usable connection. Big rig access is very doable with some care. The trees are not trimmed high enough on the exit lane for taller rigs. We will stay here again. We camped at Camp Gulf in a Motorhome.

Perry KOA Campground, Perry, Florida

Date of Stay: February, 2017 - $34.00
Overall Rating:      

A rustic campground in need of some TLC. Front section is mostly shaded with sites close together. These sites are gravel and grass with grass patios. Back section is sunny with wide spacing between sites. These sites are grass with concrete patios. Single lane access roads are a mix of asphalt, broken pavement, gravel, and sand. Sites seem mostly level. Big rigs coming from the south have a 135 degree left turn into a driveway curving to the right with minimal room to swing wide. It may be better to go past the campground to another gap in the divider and do a U-turn to approach from the north. Power ok, did not use other utilities. Good signal strength on campground wifi with reasonable speed. TMobile 3-4 bars with good speed. Some of the front sites might be problematic for satellite. Most of the back sites would not have an issue. We might stay here again. We camped at Perry KOA Campground in a Motorhome.

Cedar Key RV Resort, Cedar Key, Florida

Date of Stay: January, 2017 - $41.00
Overall Rating:      

A very nice campground in an off the beaten path, part of Florida. Good location for kayaking and just kicking back. Single lane, one way asphalt access roads. Mostly level concrete sites with concrete patios and generous separation of sites (especially for Florida). The turn off of FL 24 onto Shiloh road is somewhat blind as to oncoming traffic with big rigs probably needing to swing wide at the turn. Access roads in the park are narrow, but perfectly doable in a big rig. Some turns require some extra care (watch out for the low lying stop sign on the inside of the exit turn).

Power ok, water varied but mainly on the low side (40psi), sewer connection is recessed about 4" so a standard Camco elbow won't reach: needs a donut or a riser. Wifi environment was very noisy with the APs having poor to fair signals. Two of the 3 APs would not connect to my router, although they did connect to my Mac. Speed was adequate to poor. Verizon 3 to 4 bars with adequate to abysmal speed. Speed issues for campground wifi and Verizon were mainly in the early evening. TMobile varied from 1 bar of 3G to 1 sometimes 2 bars of LTE and would not maintain a data connection.

Most sites would have no issue with satellite access. Full recycle on site. OK road bike riding in park, on Shiloh Rd, and on FL 24. We would stay here again. We camped at Cedar Key RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Quail Run RV Resort, Wesley Chapel, Florida

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

Very quiet campground with some road noise from I-75 mostly only noticeable on the side up against the highway. Two main sections to the campground - the older part with gravel sites and grass between with lots of live oak trees and Spanish moss and the newer part with concrete sites, concrete patios and grass between the sites with minimal vegetation. Big rigs are better off in the newer part of the campground, however, with care, they can get into the sites in the older part of the park. Access roads are all asphalt with those in the newer part of the park wider than those in the older part. Sites were mostly level. Big rigs should use Wesley Chapel Rd to Old Pasco Rd (approaching the campground from the south). Coming in from the north via FL 52 to Old Pasco Rd there is a risk of scraping the ground at the turn for longer rigs. Old Pasco Rd itself is a narrow 2 lane (10' lanes) road with no shoulders. Power ok, water ok (60psi), sewer ok (note septic was in the gravel parking area covered by a metal plate - pretty much under the rig). Wifi blocks video streaming so bandwidth doesn't drop to nothing in the evenings. It also appears that some degree of censoring is being applied to non-video related content - e.g, IMDB was blocked, research on an Adobe Lightroom problem was blocked, and the iTunes store was blocked. Verizon 4 bars with adequate speed except in the evening. TMobile 1-2 bars (sometimes none) with usable speed. Satellite access depends on the site in the older part of the park, no issues in the newer part of the park. Recycles cans, cardboard, and paper on site. OK road bike riding in park (about a 1.5 mile loop), none adjacent to park. Good road bike trail within 30min drive (Suncoast Trail). We would stay here again. We camped at Quail Run RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Everglades Isle Motorcoach Resort (Class A only), Everglades City, Florida

Date of Stay: January, 2017 - $150.00
Overall Rating:      

A very nice, peaceful campground set alongside the Barron river. Some noise from the air boats, but not as noticeable as we thought it might be (we were on a riverfront site at the south end of the campground away from the air boat docks). Very much a roll up the sidewalks kind of town (restaurants were closed by 6pm when we were there). A good place to just put up your feet and relax. Wide access roads constructed with pavers. Sites are pavers with various vegetation between the sites. Plenty of room for rig and toad with generous patio area. Sites were mostly level. Gated campground, but note that the keypad for entry is on the passenger side of the vehicle. No issues at all with big rig access. Power, water, sewer ok. Wifi good signal strength and speed, but could not get our router connected. Macs and iPads had no problems with connecting. Verizon 3-4 bars with adequate speed. No usable T-Mobile signal. No issues with satellite access. No recycling on site. Decent road bike riding adjacent to the park along CR-29 (adequate bike lane and minimal traffic). We would stay here again. We camped at Everglades Isle Motorcoach Resort (Class A only) in a Motorhome.

Grassy Key RV Park & Resort, Marathon, Florida

Date of Stay: December, 2016 - $104.00
Overall Rating:      

Open gravel lot with some scattered vegetation. Overlooks Grassy Key Harbor for bayside views. Nice common area next to water. Very quiet except for background traffic noise from highway. Level, gravel, somewhat small sites - not quite long enough for 44' motorhome with toad parked sideways. A lot of overhang into the "street" by the toads and tow vehicles - moving of which is generally required to get rigs in and out of sites. Somewhat narrow sites - felt more cramped here than elsewhere in Florida. Power ok, water pressure low (40psi static dropping to 25psi with water running), sewer ok. Wifi pretty useless, unable to connect. Note 1GB per week limit. Verizon 3-4 bars with sluggish to adequate speeds. TMobile comes and goes - sometimes no signal, sometimes 1 or 2 bars. Did not check speed. No issues with satellite access. No recycle. Good road bike riding adjacent to park - small amount (1/4 mile) of street riding to reach the Florida Overseas Heritage trail. We would likely stay here again when in the keys. We camped at Grassy Key RV Park & Resort in a Motorhome.
