Boot Hill RV Resort, Alamogordo, New Mexico

Date of Stay: December, 2017 - $27.00
Overall Rating:

A large gravel lot with a few trees. Decent gravel access roads. Mostly level gravel sites with adequate separation. Power OK, water OK, sewer OK. Note that they are on a isolated sewer system that they have to pump and transport to the city, so they do not allow heavy water/sewer usage - e.g. on board washers. No problems with satellite access. No recycle on site, but the Walmart in town has limited recycle (corrugated cardboard, paper, plastic 1 & 2, tin cans, but no box (cereal) board). Possible road bike riding outside campground on the highway. We would overnight here again. We camped at Boot Hill RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Mountain View RV Park, Van Horn, Texas

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

Another West Texas campground, but with a higher than normal amount of trees. Otherwise, a flat gravel field with wide access roads and long level pull thrus. Right next to I-10 for easy access, but tradeoff is lots of truck noise. Power ok, did not use other utilities. Campground wifi had ok signal, but lousy speed. Verizon was 5 bars with good speed, T-Mobile was 3 bars with decent speed. No recycle on site. No obvious road bike riding. We will overnight here again when passing thru the area. We camped at Mountain View RV Park in a Motorhome.

Overall Rating:

A big gravel parking lot on the top of a hill. Gravel access roads and sites with scattered young trees. Picnic table on a paver patio at each site. Low fence blocking view of neighbor's utility pedestal. Sites were level with small, but adequate spacing. No issues with big rig access. Power ok, did not use other utilities. No issues with satellite access. Campground wifi had good signal with adequate speed; Verizon was 2 bars with adequate speed; -Mobile was 1 bar with very slow speed. No recycle on site.

Maverick Ranch RV Park at Lajitas Resort, Lajitas, Texas

Date of Stay: November, 2017 - $33.00
Overall Rating:

This was better than the typical West Texas campground. An open field mostly surrounded by low hills. Decent width asphalt access roads. The asphalt sites were mostly level. Alternating pullthrus (shared pedestal) with alt backin/pullin around perimeter (shared pedestal). Close together on utility side with patio side varying from adequate to generous. A few scattered trees but no real shade. Fire pit and picnic tables with struggling grass and dirt between the sites. The surrounding hills did tend to trap the campfire smoke so there was a fairly continuous wood smoke smell. Power, water, sewer ok. No satellite issues. Campground wifi had decent signal with speed ranging from decent to abysmal (campground was 10-30% full). Verizon was roaming between 1x and 3G with generally poor speeds (phone service was fine). No T-Mobile. Bring a full load of groceries as the nearest grocery store is over an hour away. There is a small "deli" adjacent to the campground, but with minimal selection. Fuel is available, but pricey adjacent to the campground and over in Terlinqua. No recycle on site. Ok road bike riding in campground and on the highway We will stay here again when visiting Big Bend National Park. We camped at Maverick Ranch RV Park at Lajitas Resort in a Motorhome.

San Angelo KOA, San Angelo, Texas

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

A pleasant, moderately quiet campground on the outskirts of town. Some highway and airport noise during the day but it quiets down after dark. A mostly flat field with somewhat loose pea gravel for access roads (pretty much single lane) and sites. Somewhat hard to tell sites from access roads, so traffic seems to move in unpredictable ways. Grass with medium sized trees scattered around the campground. Odd layout for the sites - they seem to face most any direction even changing direction sometimes within the same row. Pull thrus seem to be mostly alternating direction with shared pedestals. Very close spacing on the utility side - not quite close enough to pass the salt to your neighbor, but close enough to easily touch both rigs at the same time. Patio side seemed more generous, but the shorter pull thrus tended to have a vehicle parked in the patio area which made for tight quarters. The longer pull thrus seemed to be less affected by this due to the length of the pull thrus which eliminate much of the overlap on the patio side. The higher priced pull thrus were non-alternating with short fences on the patio side blocking the view of the neighboring utility pedestal. These sites were generally more spacious. Sites are only somewhat level - our driver side rear tires were 2" off the ground. Loose pea gravel leads to some coach movement when walking inside even using jack pads. Power OK (even under load), water OK (80psi), sewer OK (note trap is relatively close to surface, so it may appear to have standing water in the pipe). Most sites will have no issues with satellite access. Campground wifi good signal strength with adequate speed. Verizon 5 bars with decent speed, TMobile 3 bars with adequate speed. No recycling. Possibly some road bike riding in the area. We would probably stay here again, but only in the non-alternating pull thrus. We camped at San Angelo KOA in a Motorhome.

Buck Creek RV Park, Abilene, Texas

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

Not much has changed since our last stay. Typical west Texas campground, perhaps a bit less dusty than usual and a bit more grass and small trees. Good gravel access roads. Mostly level, long gravel pull thrus with good spacing between sites grass and a few trees but minimal shade. Overall very easy big rig access. Power ok, did not use other utilities. Campground wifi had good signal with adequate speed; Verizon was 4 bars with good speed; T-Mobile was 1-2 bars with good speed. Most sites would have no problem with satellite access. No recycle on site. No obvious good road bike riding. We'd stay here again for an overnight. We camped at Buck Creek RV Park in a Motorhome.

The Vineyards, Grapevine, Texas

Date of Stay: November, 2017 - $50.00
Overall Rating:

This continues to be a very nice campground on the North side of the metroplex. Very close the the end of the runways at DFW, but it is generally not too noticeable since the normal traffic flow is South, thus most of the noise is from heavy jet takeoffs. Far enough away from the major arteries to avoid traffic noise, but you do have a slight amount of noise from the marina especially on summer weekends (more party noise than boat noise). Access roads are asphalt and a bit too narrow for two rigs to pass each other. Mix of pull thrus and back-ins with mix of asphalt and concrete sites each with picnic table and fire ring, some with grills. Sites are generally generous in their spacing. Grass and trees throughout the campground with the eastern section more wooded and the western section more open. Power OK, water OK, sewer OK. Campground wifi had good signal with sluggish to good speed; Verizon and TMobile were both 3 bars with adequate to good speed. Satellite access is dependent upon the site with less of an issue in the western section of the campground. Full single stream recycle on site. Excellent road bike riding in and around the campground. We will continue to return here when in the area. We camped at The Vineyards in a Motorhome.

Hidden Lake RV Resort, Ardmore, Oklahoma

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

A pleasant setting around a private pond which suffers a bit from being adjacent to the highway (noise, but mostly handled by closing the windows). The approach from the highway on Hedges Rd is a somewhat narrow two lane road with no shoulders, but presents no problem with big rig access although two rigs probably won't be able to easily pass. The access roads within the campground are a mix of gravel and deteriorating asphalt and are about a lane and a half. The sites are a mix of pullthrus and backins - some gravel, some with concrete pads. The longer pull thrus are gravel and have a good amount of slope at each end so longer rigs will need careful positioning to minimize leveling issues. Our site was somewhat level - more sloped than usual, but the front tires were still on the ground. Gravel area in site is barely wider than the tire footprint. Grass between the sites with adequate separation between the sites. Picnic table, grill, and fire ring at each site. Power ok (dropped to 114v under load), cable slightly fuzzy (analog). Campground wifi good signal and pretty good speed. Verizon was 2 bars as was TMobile, did not check the speed on either. Generally no problem with satellite access. No recycling on site, no obvious road bike riding. We would overnight here again, but probably would not stay longer. We camped at Hidden Lake RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Wellington KOA, Wellington, Kansas

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

Basically a mostly flat, mostly open field with trees around the periphery and scattered trees within the campground. A small pond divides the campground in half. Gravel access roads - the main one is about a lane and a half while the interior ones are single lane. Mostly level gravel sites (most pull thru, some backin) along with 3 "premium" sites that are concrete. Sites have picnic tables and fire rings. Decent drainage in the south half with some standing water in the north half two days after a heavy rain. Noise is a problem at this campground as the BNSF transcon is about 1000 ft east of the campground and their yard is about 2000 ft south of the campground with at least 20-30 trains every day around the clock. The result is a fairly persistent low frequency rumble punctuated by occasional train whistles and coupling noise audible even with windows closed. Power ok, water a bit low (50psi static, 35 psi flowing), sewer ok, cable ok (analog). Satellite access is site dependent. Campground wifi signal ok with adequate to sluggish speed; Verizon 2-3 bars with good speed; TMobile 1-2 bars with sluggish speed. No recycling on site, but the town of Wellington has single stream recycling at the old firehouse on Jefferson street (Sat am and Wed pm only). Possible road bike riding out on the shoulders of the highway. This would have been an 8 except for the noise. We would probably stay here again, but only for an overnight. We camped at Wellington KOA in a Motorhome.

Triple J RV Park, Russell, Kansas

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

Campground is divided into two sections - south and north. These comments apply to the north section where we stayed. Access into the campground requires 3 quick turns coming in from the highway - it's going to look like you are turning into a gas station, but the 2nd turn is just before entering it to get onto the access road paralleling the highway. Once in the campground the interior roads are somewhat narrow gravel roads. Sites (in the north section) are very long (100' or so), level alternating pullthrus. This section looks to be pretty much an open field with a few young trees. Grass and a picnic table on a concrete slab between the sites on the patio side with reasonable spacing on both utility and patio sides. Pretty consistent highway noise during the day dying off somewhat in the evening, but unless your windows are open it is fairly low level background noise. It's about the best you can hope for being adjacent to the interstate. Power a touch low (114v under load), did not use other utilities. Campground wifi adequate signal with good speed; Verizon 3 bars with good speed; TMobile 3 bars with good speed. No problem with satellite access in north section of campground, may be site dependent in south section. No recycling on site and no obvious road bike riding. We'd stay here again for an overnight. We camped at Triple J RV Park in a Motorhome.

Holiday RV Park, North Platte, Nebraska

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $33.00
Overall Rating:

A campground that would probably be a very pleasant stay except for the location - right next to an off-ramp from the interstate. The good news is there aren't a lot of trucks taking the ramp and using their jakes to slow down. It is however a pretty much constant flow of trucks (less on the overnight) and the corresponding noise is noticeable even in the back of the campground with the windows all closed. Asphalt entry road with a u-turn for those coming from the US 83 exit - big rigs will need the entire width to make the turn. Interior access roads and the sites are gravel. Access roads are just a bit over a single lane. Sites are somewhat close together and mostly level. Sites barely long enough for a 44' with toad (we had to disconnect, but only because we have an additional 4 ft or so off the back of the toad for a bike rack). Grass and a picnic table between the sites and lots of trees around the campground. Site selection is pretty much a free for all when arriving before 4pm so reserving a specific site (e.g. to ensure satellite access) is problematic. Depending upon the row, departure is either a straight shot back out to the main road or a return through the main entry road including the u-turn. Power ok, water low (40psi static, 30psi flowing), sewer not threaded (needs donut for seal). Campground wifi good signal and good speed (except of course in the early to mid-evening when it gets rather sluggish); Verizon 4 bars with good speed (again except for the evenings); no TMobile service. Satellite access is highly dependent upon the site. No recycling on site and no obvious road bike riding. We might stay here again, but would probably look for something further away from the highway unless it was just an overnight stop. We camped at Holiday RV Park in a Motorhome.

Fishberry Campground, Valentine, Nebraska

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

A very nice setting for this campground surrounded by the rolling pastures of a working ranch and distant cattle. Quiet except for the truck traffic on the highway which is light, but fairly consistent, during the day and continues into the late evening. A lane and a half gravel entrance road leading to single lane interior gravel access roads. Sites are mostly long, alternating pullthrus (shared utility pedestals). Sites are a mix of gravel and some kind of low lying ground cover and are mostly level. Campground was mostly empty so it was hard to judge site separation, but it looked like it would be very close on the utility side and barely adequate separation on the patio side with rigs on both sides. Trees were scattered around the campground and picnic tables were at each site. Power ok, did not use other utilities. Campground wifi had moderate signal and good speed dropping to adequate in the evening (but only 3 rigs in the campground); Verizon 4 bars, good speed; TMobile 3 bars, did not check speed. No problem with satellite access. No recycling on site and no obvious road bike riding. We would stay here again for an overnight and perhaps longer. We camped at Fishberry Campground in a Motorhome.

Sleepy Hollow RV Park, Wall, South Dakota

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

A very quiet campground with occasional train traffic (averaged one or two per day) with some whistle blowing. Overall not really objectionable, but noticeable to a light sleeper. Main entrance road is gravel and a somewhat narrow two lanes. Gravel access roads in the interior (mostly single lane) with somewhat level gravel sites that could use a bit more gravel in places. Perhaps a bit smaller than typical site separation with struggling grass between the sites and a picnic table. Trees all around the perimeter of the campground along with some trees within the campground. Some puddling after a rainstorm, but no mud. Big rigs need to use extra caution on departure due to narrow access roads combined with utilities at the rear of the site across the road. It may be difficult to stay on the gravel making the turn out of the site. Power ok, water ok (70 psi), sewer ok. All utilities are towards the back of the site. Campground wifi had good signal and speed (but the campground was mostly empty at the time); Verizon 5 bars, good speed; TMobile 3 bars, good speed. No problem with satellite access except perhaps in parts of the A (southernmost) row. No recycling on site. Ok road bike riding around the town. We would stay here again when in the area. We camped at Sleepy Hollow RV Park in a Motorhome.

Elkhorn Ridge RV Resort & Cabins, Spearfish, South Dakota

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

A mostly quiet campground out in the countryside between Spearfish and Sturgis. There is noticeable truck noise during the weekdays on US 85 (there's a quarry a few miles south of the campground). Good width on the asphalt access roads. Sites are mostly level concrete pads with asphalt entry and exit. Generous spacing between sites filled with grass and relatively young trees. Each site includes a picnic table on a concrete pad. Power ok, water great (110 psi), sewer ok. Note the utilities are right up against the edge of the concrete parking pad. Given the closeness of the utilities, big rigs should use extra care getting in as the concrete pad is only about 10' wide. Wifi is problematic. The campground wifi has decent signal with speed ranging from adequate to very poor (slower in the early to mid evenings as usual). Verizon was 2-3 bars with speed ranging from good to abysmal (again slow in the evening). What makes the wifi problematic is that these performance levels were with the campground only 10% to 20% full. TMobile was unavailable. No problem with satellite access, although this may change in 10 years or so as the trees mature. Cardboard recycling on site (only 1 container just north of the office). Good road bike riding within the campground and pretty decent along the shoulders of US 85 heading south from the campground. We would stay here again when in the area. We camped at Elkhorn Ridge RV Resort & Cabins in a Motorhome.

North Park Campground, Dickinson, North Dakota

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

This is a combination mobile home park, long term rv park, and short term rv park. Comments apply to the short term area. Dirt access roads, dirt sites with a minimal scattering of gravel. Sites somewhat level. Very long pullthrus are alternating direction so patio area is shared. Very close together - a small grassy area barely wide enough for a picnic table running parallel to the sites with a narrow concrete walkway on each side is all that separates two sites. Two adjacent rigs could not both put out their awnings. Some of the narrowest sites we've seen outside of Florida. Except for the walkway and grass area, it gets extremely muddy after a rain so it is nearly impossible to keep mud out of the rig. A large amount of gravel would be a huge improvement on appearance and livability not only by dealing with the mud, but by adding usable outdoor space in front and back of the rig. Power ok, water ok, sewer ok. Campground wifi good signal with adequate to sluggish speed. Verizon 3 bars, did not check speed. Tmobile signal varied from non existent to 1 bar, did not check speed. No recycle on site. Road bike riding in the neighborhood. This would have been a 7 except for the mud problem. We will probably not stay here again unless they address their mud issues. We camped at North Park Campground in a Motorhome.
