Thousand Trails / Lake Texoma, Gordonville, Texas

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $1.00
Overall Rating:      

We enjoyed our stay at this campground. We were last here in May, 2013 and the campground is about the same as it was then. We appreciated the ranger giving us a list of vacant full hookup, 50 Amp sites that were available, I think there were 8 or 9. We picked the one that looked good to us and settled into a large, level, gravel site. There's a $3 a night surcharge for 50 Amps - in fact, the power pedestals for those sites are padlocked until the surcharge is paid. This Thousand Trails has both a large "family" pool and Activity Center and a smaller Adult pool with spa and Adult Activity Center. There are many annual campsites that have been improved in various ways by the residents. A surprising number of the residents light their sites at night with "running lights" whether or not they are present. However, if a person arrives looking for a 30 Amp full hookup site they would have many nice spots from which to choose. The roads in the campground are typical Thousand Trails: read rough and pothole filled. We had no problem getting a satellite signal and our Verizon signal was a solid 4G. We appreciated the way campground management worked with us as we needed to prepare to put our pickup in the shop for repairs. We camped at Thousand Trails / Lake Texoma in a Fifth Wheel.

Roadrunner RV Park, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma

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

While this is no tranquil, picturesque campground it is a clean, efficient, well-planned urban RV Park. The roads are good and the campsites, while not spacious, are big enough. Most sites are pull through spots that, again, are just long enough. There's nice grass between sites and excellent utility hookups. The park has a new office and meeting space. The restrooms are as nice as you'll find. We didn't hook up to the cable TV but the WiFi performed well except for an overnight issue that was resolved the next morning. The campground even has new underground tornado shelters. The campground has recently expanded and with that expansion a new entrance was added. Access is now right off of the I35 north feeder road. Just watch for the big campground sign. This is, of course, Oklahoma City so there is both traffic and the noise it brings. There is also the convenience of being close to most everything. The price reflects the location, but, really we've paid more. If you need a spot in OKC, this is it. We camped at Roadrunner RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Coon Creek COE, Ponca City, Oklahoma

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $9.00
Overall Rating:      

The campground is situated on a finger of land, affording water views to nearly every campsite. Several have water access. The campground roads are paved and the sites are gravel. Each site has a covered picnic table and fire pit. They are reasonably level, mostly with shade, and 30 amp electric and water. There are no full hookup spots. We arrived on a weekend and the place was nearly full with lots of people fishing, boating, and jet skiing. Several children were playing in the water. By Sunday night most everyone had left and there were lots of prime sites available to travelers. Generally speaking, the sites looking out over the lake itself are on a bluff. Those on the cove are closer to water level. We were mildly disappointed that the weeds between us and the lake on our bluff side spot were tall enough to obstruct what would have been great lake views. I had no problem getting satellite TV and my Verizon 4G was weak but usable. Probably the biggest negative to this campground is getting to it. It is about 30 miles from I-35 and the roads get increasingly rough, narrow, and hilly as you travel. Whether or not traveling these roads is worthwhile for you depends on how long you plan to stay and how much you enjoy a lakeside campground. We camped at Coon Creek COE in a Fifth Wheel.

Wilson State Park, Otoe, Wilson, Kansas

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $32.00
Overall Rating:      

We spent four nights at this park which is located in central Kansas, not far from I-70. This portion of the state park has a cluster of campgrounds scattered in the hills along the pretty lake. The steep hills don't match the traditional view of flat land Kansas! In our case, though, the wind very much did fit the Kansas stereotype. We had lots of hot, dry wind with gusts rocking the camper. Obviously, this isn't an everyday occurrence, but we dealt with the wind (at times over 40 mph!) our entire stay.

We were in one of the four full hookup sites (the Foxtail loop). There were very few campers present during the week, but things got busier over the weekend when every spot, including camping cabins were booked.

One thing you might want to know is that above the camping fee there's a $5 a day entry fee (I included it in our paid per night). There's a nearby Corps of Engineers campgrounds with, I think, electric only that might be a better short stay.

I had no problem getting a satellite signal. Keeping it was a different thing, as the strong winds tended to move the dish just enough to disrupt the signal. During one especially strong blast associated with a passing thunderstorm, one of the guy wires I had put on it snapped. My Verizon had a weak but usable signal.

We enjoyed the star-lit nights and beautiful sunsets over the lake. The near record temperatures and constant winds rocking the camper, though, kept us inside through much of the day. Had the weather been more enjoyable, I think we would have been quite satisfied with this stop. The weather, though, caused us to look forward to calmer, cooler days elsewhere. We camped at Wilson State Park, Otoe in a Fifth Wheel.

Robidoux RV Park, Gering, Nebraska

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

This campground is in Gering, near Scotts Bluff National Monument. Many of the sites are long pull-throughs with full hookups. The sites are spacious. My Verizon had good 4G but we ended up using the campground WiFi which performed well for us. I had no problem getting the satellite signal, although the "nothing on the grass" rule made setting up the dish tripod a challenge. You'll likely want reservations at this RV Park: from what I could see, the campground was full each of the three nights of our mid-September stay. We camped at Robidoux RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Heartland RV Park & Cabins, Hermosa, South Dakota

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

This RV Park is located about 15 miles south of Rapid City and about 15 minutes from one of the entrances to Custer State Park. This is a large, well-laid-out park. Sites and roads are good gravel and site spacing is close but not quite on top of one another. Most of the sites are just long enough for the camping unit but plenty of parking is across the road from the campsites. The campground has decent WiFi, cable TV, a pool, and laundry rooms. There's a camp store and a new activity building is just being completed. Also it looks as if the campground itself is being expanded. The staff is constantly out and about, keeping things in good shape. The location itself is interesting because it is at the edge of the Black Hills which are mostly hidden from view because of the terrain. The immediate vicinity of the campground is treeless, rolling hills but within a couple of minutes of the campground the beauty of the area is plainly visible just to the west and within minutes of leaving the campground and heading west you are driving through it all. For us, the campground struck a balance between being close to the state park, but with full hookups and an easy drive versus being right in the middle of it all but either being in the state park with electric only or driving through twisting, sometimes steep grades to a commercial campground in the Black Hills. Also, this park has the distinction of accepting Passport America and Escapees half price rates with no stay limit or blackout dates. You definitely want one of these two memberships if you are going to stay here. Aside from being just slightly outside the beauty of the Black Hills the only other negative is the constant noise from highway 79, the primary north/south route in the area. Our site was in the row farthest from the highway so the noise wasn't quite as bad as it was in the rows along the highway. The traffic is 24/7 so it is something you have to make peace with during a stay at this campground. We camped at Heartland RV Park & Cabins in a Fifth Wheel.

Arrow Campground, Wall, South Dakota

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

We were looking for a campground with full hookups near Badlands National Park and Wall Drug and Arrow Campground in Wall, SD was one of our two choices. This is an older campground that is showing its age. We ended up in an area with a crew of construction workers. The hard working people left early in the morning and returned in the evening. Some of the campsites are set up with sites "back to back" so our neighbor's 20 year old travel trailer on the driver's side was pretty close. I'm sure we could have stayed in a different site had I asked, and I should have. The bathhouse was clean, but worn. After we were starting to set up I realized that there had been a sewer backup on the site on the other side of our camper at some point that needed to be cleaned up. However, someone cleaned it up shortly after that. Wall Drug is close by and if you don't mind walking across some railroad tracks, it is easy walking distance. Speaking of the railroad tracks, we heard, I think just one train a day and none at night. One of the entrances to Badlands National Park is just a few miles south of town. Campground WiFi wasn't very good but my Verizon 4G was fine. I had no problem getting my Dish Network satellites. On a future trip I think I'd try the other park or maybe forgo staying at our around Wall and just drive out from the Rapid City area. We camped at Arrow Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Farm Island Recreation Area, Pierre, South Dakota

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

Farm Island Recreation Area is a pretty spot with large, level sites and 50 amp electrical hookups. There is a convenient water and dump station near the entrance. We arrived, happily with reservations, on an August Friday afternoon and the campground was nearly full. There were many families and the kids had a blast swimming in the lake. The lake is fed by the Missouri River. It has a sandy bottom and is pretty shallow for a good distance out - making it perfect for children. By Sunday evening the place was nearly empty and we pretty much had the campground to ourselves the rest of our stay. Here are a few things you might want to know if you plan on visiting Farm Island. For out of state reservations they also tack on $7.50 per reservation. Also, in addition to the camping fee there is a South Dakota State Parks vehicle entry fee of $6 a day. If you plan on visiting Custer State Park later on you probably want to just get the $30 annual pass instead. I had no problem getting satellite TV which is a good thing because I don't think there was any over the air TV. My Verizon signal was solid. When I tested the water with our TDS meter it reported numbers as high as 1000. That's really high and at the limit of what is considered fit for human consumption. I suggest you bring drinking water. Finally, the flies are real pests throughout this area. Be prepared to defend yourself unless the wind is blowing. We camped at Farm Island Recreation Area in a Fifth Wheel.

Codington County Memorial RV Park, Watertown, South Dakota

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

This campground has a variety of sites, ranging from long full hookup pull-throughs down to no-hookup tenting sites. This campground accepts reservations and also offers weekly and monthly rates. There are both 30 and 50 amps sites and we were charged a couple of dollars extra for a 50. Many of the sites offer great views of Lake Kampeska. The pull-through sites are near the lake, but the hookups are shared so you end up back to back and face to face with your neighbors. Considering how long the sites are, that's probably not much of an issue. Another section of full hookups are back in, shady sites, but not along the lake. That's where we stayed. Several water/electric sites are close to the lake, really, some of the nicest sites in the park. I think it would have been a piece of cake to get satellite in any of the pull-throughs, a bit tougher in the section we were in. My Verizon signal was good, offering fast data speeds. Being that the campground is around 12 miles west of I29, it's probably not a good candidate for an overnight stop for those traveling north or south on the interstate. Still, it's a pretty nice campground if it fits your travel plans. We camped at Codington County Memorial RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Kidder Recreation Area, Wahpeton, North Dakota

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

Our campsite was a nice, paved back in spot with 30 amp electric and water hookups. The Red River is just a stone's throw from the campground and many locals come to the park to fish, or maybe just to cruise through to the turnaround and back out creating a flow of traffic through the campground. There are restrooms and showers plus a dump station that, for some reason, is set up to be used coming into the campground rather than leaving it. There is a pay station at the campground, but if you want to call ahead and pay the city will mark a site with your name so you won't have to worry about arriving and finding all the sites taken. On our August Sunday night four of the eight sites were in use. You might want to know that the electric/water hookups are located between the sites with the even numbers having hookups on the accustomed driver's side. Mention, of course, must be made of the "World's Largest Catfish" statue which is at the campground. Since our stay was a short one I didn't set up the satellite dish, but I'm confident I would have gotten a signal. My Verizon signal was nearly full scale. While this campground isn't a destination spot (except maybe for people who love giant catfish statues) it works as a nice place to land for a night or two. We camped at Kidder Recreation Area in a Fifth Wheel.

Lebanon Hills Regional Park Campground, Apple Valley, Minnesota

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

This campground is located just minutes from the Minnesota Zoo and just a short distance from I35E. This is a great campground with paved roads and level, gravel sites. There are three loops but only one with full hookups. This is a very popular campground and advance reservations for anything other than a short midweek stay are a must. If you want to stay over a summer weekend you probably need to book in March or April. We enjoyed the campground and appreciated the short distances to everything from Mall of America to the Zoo (practically within walking distance) to other sightseeing attractions. We also appreciated how well kept the park is. We've been in lots of places that could take lessons from the staff at Lebanon Hills. People traveling with children might want to pick the east loop rather than the full hookup west loop. The east loop has electric only but has a very nice playground at its center. The north loop is dry camping and even the showers are a bit of a walk. Being that this is a really nice campground in an urban area you might deal with some sticker shock on the price, even though it is a county park. The price I listed includes the registration fee and taxes. Our TV found many local channels and I had no problem getting the satellite signal. Our Verizon 4G signal was a usable 1-3 bars. If you can plan ahead, this is a very good Minneapolis camping option. We camped at Lebanon Hills Regional Park Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Beeds Lake State Park, Hampton, Iowa

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $16.00
Overall Rating:      

We were at Beeds Lake State Park in Hampton, Iowa a couple of years ago and I did a review on it then. Things are the same as they were then. We had a back in site on our previous visit, but this time we ended up in a "parallel parking" site. This time we arrived during the county fair which takes place close by and the place was full. Our parallel parking site worked out just fine, although I chose it because it was on the end of the row and with a bit more elbow room than most. The 50 amp electric was solid and restrooms and showers were okay. I had a decent 4G signal until each evening. At that point the signal was strong enough but I think all the fair goers were overloading the system. Because of trees I was unable to get the Dish western arc satellites so I swapped out LNB's and aimed for the eastern arc which I got with no problems. Our feeling about Beeds Lake is about the same as it was before: it's a nice spot if you are okay with electric only, an odd parking setup, and being 10 miles or so off of I35. We camped at Beeds Lake State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

West Lake Park, Park Terrace Campground, Davenport, Iowa

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

This park is a real gem. Close to the I-280 bypass, on a pretty lake, and in a beautiful park. The campsites are full hookup, 50 amp, level sites, with gravel pads and concrete patios and lots of nice shade. The water spigots are a distance back from the sites, and two sites share the same spigot, each of which has two hookups. You'll likely need some extra water hose. Also many of the sewer hookups are at the back of the site so you may need extra sewer hose or at at least pay attention when selecting a site. Also, there are several gates to West Lake Park. If you want Terrace Campground, you want Gate 5. This is a no reservations campground. When you arrive you find a site and then go to the office to register and pay. We arrived on an early Monday afternoon and had many sites to select from. By Thursday most sites had been taken but there was still a selection of sites. My guess is that the place pretty much fills up on summer weekends. Nearby is the water/electric only campground, West Lake Park Summit Campground. You actually register at the office at Gate 5 for that campground as well. Because of that I think some people confuse the two campgrounds. I note that there are several reviews that are actually of this campground listed under the Summit campground. We camped at West Lake Park, Park Terrace Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Clinton Lake State Recreation Area, Dewitt, Illinois

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

This is a really big campground and, again, to be honest we didn't see much of it beyond the section we were in. There are a variety of sites, ranging from just a few 50 amp full hookup sites, to several 30 amp full hook up spots, to water/electric to electric only.

This facility borders Clinton Lake: a popular area boating and fishing spot. Nearby is a marina and beach. None of the sites in our area, though, bordered the lake. This place is far enough off the beaten track that travelers don't often find it. The locals, though, fill it up on summer weekends, often in family groups who know just what spots are their favorites. The roads are good and the sites are level and spacious.

I was under the impression that the electric is an issue. Our power pedestal began acting up and getting hot. One of the campground employees cheerfully changed out the plug and breaker and we were back in business. I had the feeling that it was a common occurrence. There are a couple of issues you might want to know about. First, the few shower houses with modern facilities are in need of more "TLC." Also, there are several stinky pit toilets supposedly available closer to the campsites. I can't imagine anyone using them. Second, my Verizon signal was fair to poor, depending on time of day. Using the signal booster I managed to do most of what I wanted but at times it slowed to a crawl. All in all, our experience at this campground was a positive one and we will likely return. We camped at Clinton Lake State Recreation Area in a Fifth Wheel.

Thousand Trails - Horseshoe Lakes, Clinton, Indiana

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $1.00
Overall Rating:      

Things are pretty much the same as they were when we were here four years ago and that's not a bad thing. The setting is beautiful and most of the campsites available to those of us who travel are nice while not the best ones. The best spots with wonderful views of the lakes are taken by long timers. Many of these folks have made lots of upgrades to their sites, turning them into showplaces. While our site wasn't one of the really great spots overlooking a lake, it was one of our favorite spots so far this year. This being Independence Day weekend there were lots of people around. However, I think I counted two empty spots (although they may well have been due to no-shows). The campground was in great shape and there were some nice events including a "zoo" with interesting animals and a barbecue with the meat provided by the campground. Our Verizon signal was good and I was able to get 2 of my 3 Dish Network satellites through the trees. We had one low voltage episode in which our Surgeguard cut power to the camper for a few minutes. This is a pretty campground and we'll likely return when future travels bring us to western Indiana. We camped at Thousand Trails - Horseshoe Lakes in a Fifth Wheel.
