Sugar Point Resort, Federal Dam, Minnesota

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $39.00
Overall Rating:      

Our purpose for staying here was to visit family who live less than a couple miles away. If not for that convenience factor, we probably wouldn't have paid this much to stay here. It was OK for our 40 foot motorhome, but it's really a cabin resort with seasonal pull trailers and a couple transient sites. We had a grassy site that was pretty level, after driving down a big dip from the campground road. If you have a boat and want to go fishing, this location is probably great since they have a marina. We didn't go on the lake at all. The couple who own the resort are very friendly and helpful. They are in the process of making improvements since they bought it a couple years ago. But the laundry room we had a front row view of from our campsite was probably on its last legs about 10 years ago - it's leaning different directions, wood rotting, paint peeling. Ditto for the building that said Men and Women - I didn't see another restroom building and I didn't get close enough to that one to see if it's actually functioning. Since it's a lakefront resort and we were there in the summer, there was lots of noise and activities, but they're good about keeping quiet hours so it didn't go on into the night. Our Verizon cell and MiFi worked fine here. Water pressure was OK - we've had a lot better and we've also had worse. We had a picnic table and fire pit. Be sure to provision before you get here - there are no grocery stores, gas stations, or anything around. We camped at Sugar Point Resort in a Motorhome.

Leech Lake Rec Area COE, Federal Dam, Minnesota

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

We stayed in the campground for a week and enjoyed it very much. It's easy to find right off CR 8 just south of Bena. Interior roads were fine to navigate with our motorhome and Jeep in tow. The place is a lot bigger than it appears when you first pull in, there are several different areas. Our Verizon cell phone and mifi hotspot worked great. We have family in the area, which is why we were visiting. There seemed to be a lot of locals camping there, lots of people with boats since there's a launch area and nice fish cleaning station onsite. Everyone was friendly. If you're not from the area, make sure you stock up on supplies before you arrive. We provisioned in Grand Rapids before we got to the COE.

Very quiet campground, lots of trees, shade and birds. We heard no road noise at all from our site, but we noticed there are some sites closer to the road. There's a pavilion and nice playground area for children, too. They have a "comfort station" along with several pit toilets throughout the campground so you don't have to walk very far. We had electric, but no water or sewer. We're self contained and we knew it ahead of time, so it wasn't a problem. We camped at Leech Lake Rec Area COE in a Motorhome.

Hills Access, Iowa City, Iowa

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

We need a stopover point on a trip from St. Louis to Minneapolis and this was perfect. It's just off Highway 218, easy in and out driving through the small town of Hills, IA. Our Verizon phone and mifi worked fine. The campground sits right along the river, and a few people pulled in for fishing in the evening. A couple other transient campers came in and out during our mid-week stay. It's first come first served, and self pay. When I called the number listed a helpful woman told me based on fees they collected that there should be space - and there was. We camped at Hills Access in a Motorhome.

South Shore Campground, Cornucopia, Wisconsin

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

We spent six nights here and it was perfect for what we wanted: easy access to Bayfield and the surrounding area, without paying Bayfield prices! This is a small campground just off the main road, which isn't heavily trafficked during the day and we hardly heard any road noise at night. There is a barrier of trees all around the campground so we didn't even think about traffic. The campground is run - very smartly - by a young couple. Their website is easy to navigate. When I left a voicemail and sent an email inquiry, both were responded to promptly. No need to check in - upon arrival you'll find a blue slip with your name at your site. We gave a credit card to hold the space and dropped a check in payment box when we arrived. Firewood is available and you pay on the honor system. There are long drop toilets, no showers, no sewer. We're self contained, so none of that was a problem for us. There are picnic tables and fire pits at each site. No cable but who has time to watch TV when you're in this area anyway? We spent a day hiking Lost Creek Trail and the Meyers Beach sea cave trail, both trailheads were just a few minutes drive from the campground. Bayfield is about 20 minutes away - we went one day just to poke around, and another day to catch the Madeline Island ferry. It's a nice easy drive from the campground. Our site was gravel that was well compacted, with a little grass growing over it. The rest of our site (and all the others) was grass. We had rain a couple days and thought our rig might settle in a little, but it didn't. Cornucopia is an old fishing village, and there's a small marina, an old main street with a general store, café, post office, etc. We picked up a couple necessities at the general store and were surprised they didn't price gouge like they could - given the area options. Nice easy stay, we would definitely recommend. We camped at South Shore Campground in a Motorhome.

Perryville Jellystone Park (formerly Perryville Campground), Perryville, Missouri

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

We stayed just one night as we were passing through the area. When I made the reservation the woman was very friendly and was clear about directions (and not trusting the GPS as their website also mentions). They have a separate section for one-nighters, it was a great pull-through spot where we didn't even have to unhook our Jeep. It does sit right on the highway, so I'm not sure about extended stays, but it's convenient if you're passing through. There are lots of trees, a few campers towards the back of the property that look like they're probably permanent. We had no problem getting in and out, however there were lots of empty sites (it was a weekday) and maybe it feels tighter when the sites are filled. We camped at Perryville Jellystone Park (formerly Perryville Campground) in a Motorhome.

Bunk House, Red Bay, Alabama

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

Keep in mind this review is based on what we were there for and what we expected. If you're looking for a "campground" for the sake of camping - there's nothing in Red Bay. Let's face it, we're all here to get work done. We bought a used 2011 Tiffin Phaeton just a couple months before Tiffin changed their policy about doing warranty work on older models. We still came to Red Bay for the bigger cottage industry that's built up around Tiffin. That's what brought us to Bunk House. When I called a few weeks before we were going to be in the area a friendly gentleman said we could arrive at the campground on Sunday for our Monday morning appointment. When we arrived on Sunday our name was on the site! It's a big gravel lot with level sites, easy back-in for our 40 foot coach. There was water, electric, sewer, wifi, and truly nothing to do but wait for your appointment. But this campground met our needs perfectly. As a side note, when we pulled the RV in the next morning, we had a team of friendly people working on it till mid-afternoon working on our punch list of items. We would definitely return to this campground and RV repair if we need more work done. We camped at Bunk House in a Motorhome.

Slickrock Campground, Bear Creek Lakes, Russellville, Alabama

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

We needed a place to stay for a few days before we had work done on our motorhome. This was perfect! The setting along the water with lots of trees is beautiful. We had a pull through site in the middle of the campground, but still walked around and enjoyed the public area where you can walk to the water. There are lots of locals who leave their trailers here and treat this as their weekend "lake house", so there are few sites available for transients. They don't take reservations, so that makes it a little tricky. It's a nice quiet campground, and you can walk/run/bike down the road to the boat launch and pavilion areas for a nice two miles roundtrip with mostly trees for scenery. After the work was completed on our motorhome, we came back here for another couple nights! We camped at Slickrock Campground, Bear Creek Lakes in a Motorhome.

Gunter Hill COE, Montgomery, Alabama

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed here for a week as we were passing through the area. Having come from Florida, we couldn't believe how spacious the sites were! This space would have accommodated three rigs in Florida. Beautiful campground with lots of trees and along the river. We took the advice of other reviews and stayed in the Catoma Loop. We road our bikes through the other loop, and it definitely is very different. Not terrible, but older, roads not as smooth, turns might be tighter for bigger rigs, etc. We had a picnic table, huge patio area, fire pit. Other campers seem to be regulars there, people who live nearby. Everyone was friendly. It's way off the road so there's no road noise, a nice quiet campground. We would definitely stay here again! We camped at Gunter Hill COE in a Motorhome.

Colbert County Alloys Park Campground, Muscle Shoals, Alabama

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $22.00
Overall Rating:      

We needed a week stay that would be close enough to the Huntsville airport and striking distance to Red Bay. We looked at other options in the area that looked like open parking lots. This campground isn't much more than that since there are no trees around the campsites. But what sold us was the surrounding area. There's a boat launch and a couple of great nature trails along the river and around the rest of the county property. We walked them every day, plus down a neighborhood street on the other side of the river with homes, chickens, horses, fields. The camp hosts were very friendly - gave us information about the surrounding area and received an Amazon package for us. The other campers were also very friendly. There was no picnic table or patio/pad, but that wasn't a bid deal for us. Free WIFI, which was surprisingly strong! We would definitely stay here if passing through the area again. We camped at Colbert County Alloys Park Campground in a Motorhome.

Seminole Campground and RV Park, North Fort Myers, Florida

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

We stayed at Seminole for five weeks mid-March to late April. First, the good: *The bathrooms and showers are the cleanest we've ever experienced in any campground. Not only cleaned daily, but probably hourly. Incredible! *Location is good if you want easy access to the interstate, and Publix, Winn Dixie, WalMart, Walgreens - they're all within five miles. *Beautiful live oaks and Spanish moss throughout the park. Now, the bad: *The other reviews about leaf blowers are no joke. Five weeks we stayed there, and EVERY SINGLE DAY - including Easter Sunday - the leaf blowers were at it. Most days it was a few minutes here and there that we could hear. A couple record days were two hours and three hours - after snowbirds checked out and there were many open pads to clean off, I presume. Seriously, Management, do you know the definition of insanity? *Lot sizes vary - we were across from the office and rec hall, had no problem parking, but our neighbor's sewer hose was about 10 inches from our patio. Ugh. We prefer a little more breathing space and if you book early you might get one towards the back of the campground that's more spacious. *Quiet hours?! Supposed to end at 11p on weekends. One Friday night they had a DJ that played till 12:20a. The volume was so loud we could feel the vibration in the walls of our coach. That's ridiculous, and worse yet was the lack of empathy from the sister of the manager who works in the office when we complained the next morning. Of course she doesn't live there, so not a big deal for her. Many other activities happen in the rec hall day and night - good if you want to be active and aren't looking for a peaceful wooded setting. *Pool music - if you're a fan of 70s and 80s music then you might not mind it blasting every day all day, whether people are in the pool or not. If you're lucky to be in a site towards the back of the property, might not be an issue for you. We camped at Seminole Campground and RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

If you're looking for something near water, this isn't it except for dropping a kayak in the Caloosahatchee River. Fort Myers Beach is an hour plus away (even more if you time beach traffic wrong). Charlotte Harbor is nice, but 30-40 minutes depending on traffic. You can go to Matlacha/Pine Island area - also 45 minutes depending on traffic. If you're here in the winter, everything depends on traffic.

Hard Rain Cafe and RV, Forks, Washington

Date of Stay: July, 2013 - $19.00
Overall Rating:      

The park has a new septic system, so previous reviews about the sewer are now old news. This campground is all about location, and their spot on the entrance to the Hoh rain forest is primo. We booked via phone after seeing their $19/nt rate on their website. When we arrived, we saw that the rates were $20/tent $25/WE $30/full hookup. I mentioned this to the girl behind the counter, and she apologized but said that they raised their rates after spending $20k on a new septic system. After I told her that she needed to update their website, she gave us the $19/nt rate from the website. Spots are back in, but easy enough to get into. Spot #10 was very level, the others look level also. Easy to pull in from road, but very poorly marked as to which driveway to pull in. Little café and store is nice. Water pressure is good. Each site has a picnic table and a small fire pit. While we were checking in, the gentleman working there started yelling at the girl behind the counter (assuming husband/wife) that they don't do full hookups for single night stays, only water/electric. He then went into a long diatribe about how overnighters save their waste and just use them as a dumping ground and put baby diapers all kinds of other nonsense into their septic. I'm assuming he's just smarting from the cost of the new septic system, but a very poor customer experience regardless. We didn't need to dump so we could care less, but be warned if you're an overnighter that you may not be able to get full hookups. The guy was pretty rude, and obviously not aware that customer service is key in this industry. We would not stay here again simply because of the gruff owner, however your mileage may vary if you are lucky enough to only deal with the girl behind the counter. We stayed here at peak time (July 13), and there were only 2 other RVs here. Not good if you're a campground owner, I think that the poor reviews here are not helping them out any. We camped at Hard Rain Cafe and RV in a Motorhome.

O'Neill Regional Park, Trabuco Canyon, California

Date of Stay: April, 2013 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

This campground is a nice little find in the hustle and bustle of the O.C. We had reserved a 40' spot (#10), but when we were supposed to move into it we thought it looked small and measured - 31'. A park ranger and the rest of the crew got it all taken care of and put us in #7 and #8, and life is good. We spent 2 nights in #27 which fit our 41' rig and Jeep Wrangler. There are several HUGE pull-throughs, occupied by small travel trailers while we were here. Trabuco Canyon road has traffic during the day, but we didn't notice any noise at all at night. Well paved roads, and lots of trails for walking. We saw plenty of horses, deer, rabbits, squirrels, some acorn woodpeckers, and other animals - a plus since we're in civilization here. Good voice and data signal on Sprint, Verizon, and TMobile, and full speed 4G on our Verizon aircard. The downsides: You will hear generators from some of the other RVs, and people here have no concept of campsite etiquette and will walk right through your campsite without a second thought. We camped at O'Neill Regional Park in a Motorhome.
