Choke Canyon State Park (Calliham Unit), Three Rivers, Texas

Date of Stay: January, 2017 - $11.00
Overall Rating:      

$22 per night (plus a $5 daily parking fee unless you've purchased a $70 annual Texas Parks Pass, which pays for itself if you plan to stay more than 10 nights in Texas State Parks) was for a mostly level asphalt/gravel back-in site (#116) with 50-amp electric and water. Many sites will accommodate a 40'+ RV (like mine) and tow with room to spare. All sites have a fire ring and a wooden picnic table on a covered concrete pad with a sun-blocking sidewall. The spacious sites have large expanses of grass and trees. It was pleasantly quiet during my stay. A most friendly, informative ranger, who provided maps of the park trails and amenities, staffed the campground office. The park office is about two miles from the campground. Activities include a boat launch, tennis and basketball courts, and baseball field, gymnasium, birding and hiking trails. The Choke Canyon reservoir surrounds the park and is visible from most sites. The nearest town is Three Rivers, which has a few restaurants and not much else; if possible, it's best to arrive fully stocked. AT&T cell reception was two to three bars of 4G, which was adequate for texting and voice. I used my Verizon jetpack for internet access as it received two to three bars of 4G LTE. I received 50+ (some duplicates) digital over-the-air TV stations and several radio stations. We camped at Choke Canyon State Park (Calliham Unit) in a Motorhome.

Goliad State Park, Goliad, Texas

Date of Stay: January, 2017 - $21.00
Overall Rating:      

$21 per night (plus a $3 daily parking fee unless you've purchased a $70 annual Texas Parks Pass, which pays for itself if you plan to stay more than 10 nights in Texas State Parks) was for a mostly level sandy "eyebrow" pull-through site (#13) in the Karankawa section with full hookups (all sites in this section are pull-throughs with full hookups). This particular site is located at the lowest point in the campground and will flood if it's raining, which it did during my stay. Maintenance did come out with rubber-backed mats so I could get out of my motorhome when the water receded. All sites can accommodate a 40'+ RV (like mine) and tow with room to spare. The Jacales camping area is water and electric or water only sites. Vaquero and Longhorn camping areas are water only tent sites. All sites have a wooden picnic table on a concrete pad and fire ring. The sites have large expanses of grass and trees. It was pleasantly quiet during my stay. A most friendly, informative ranger who provided maps of the park trails and information on the local activities and amenities staffed the campground office. The main attractions are the on-site Mission Espiritu Santo and up the road the birthplace of General Ignacio Zaragoza. The Fannin Battleground is ten miles away. The park is part of the Texas Paddling Trial as the San Antonio River surrounds the park. Goliad does have a grocery store and several restaurants. Victoria is 32 miles to the east and offers every amenity. AT&T cell reception was adequate for texting and voice. I used my Verizon jetpack for internet access as it received four bars of 4G LTE. I received 16 digital over-the-air TV stations and many radio stations. We camped at Goliad State Park in a Motorhome.

Brackenridge Park & Campground, Edna, Texas

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

$27 per night ($3 discount per night Good Sam rate) was for a mostly level pull-through site (#130) with full hookups. Most pull-though sites can accommodate a 40'+ RV (like mine) and tow with room to spare. The pull-through sites are all out in the open but do have trees planted between them for a bit of a buffer plus a picnic table and fire ring. There are many shaded sites in other areas of the campground. Lake Texana is within view of most of the sites. The office staff was very friendly and helpful. The complex is huge and has many rodeo themed activities around the year but also has hiking/biking/equestrian trails, softball/volleyball/soccer sports fields, miniature golf, playgrounds, and boating/fishing/jet skiing. The campground is gated and security maintains a presence. It was pleasantly quiet during my stay but I can imagine that during rodeo events the atmosphere could be quite exciting. The complex also encompasses a nature preserve. What used to be Lake Texana State Park is across the street and is now owned/managed by Brackenridge. The campground is 7 miles from Edna (small town) and 32 miles east of Victoria where all amenities are available. AT&T cell reception is adequate for texting and voice. I used my Verizon jetpack for internet access as it received four bars of 4G LTE. I received 24 digital over-the-air TV stations and many radio stations. We camped at Brackenridge Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

Brazos Bend State Park, Needville, Texas

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

$20 per night (plus a $7 daily parking fee unless you've purchased a $70 annual Texas Parks Pass, which pays for itself if you plan to stay more than 10 nights in Texas State Parks) was for a mostly level asphalt pad site (#219) with 30-amp electric and water. Most sites can accommodate a 40'+ RV (like mine) and tow with room to spare. It's an almost mile drive to the park office and then another two and a half mile to the campground. All sites have a wooden picnic table and fire ring. Sites are separated by large expanses of grass and trees. It was pleasantly quiet during my stay. The campground and surrounding area are home to rich bio-diversity including alligators. The campground office was staffed by a most friendly, informative ranger who provided maps of the park trails and information on the local activities and amenities. There are many activities available, which you can find listed on their website as well as in the brochures they give you. The campground is 16 miles outside of any large city where all amenities are available. AT&T cell reception is adequate for texting and voice. I used my Verizon jetpack for internet access as it received 4 bars of 4G LTE. I received 70+ digital over-the-air TV stations and many radio stations. We camped at Brazos Bend State Park in a Motorhome.

Village Creek State Park, Lumberton, Texas

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

$15 per night was for a mostly level asphalt pad surrounded by sand/gravel site (#20) with 30-amp electric and water. Several sites can accommodate a 40'+ RV (like mine) and tow with room to spare. I don't consider the campground steep...it does have a slope but it's not scary. The dump station is sloped downhill in one direction and, of course, uphill on the other side but quite easy to maneuver around if you want to change your approach direction. All sites have a picnic table, fire ring with bench seats on two sides, and tent pad. Sites are separated by post and rail fencing. It was pleasantly quiet during my stay. The campground and surrounding area are home to rich bio-diversity. The campground office was staffed by a most friendly, informative ranger who provided maps of the park trails, information on the local amenities, and Big Thicket National Forest. There are many activities available, which you can find listed on their website as well as in the brochures they give you. The campground is only a couple of miles outside Lumberton where most any amenity is available. AT&T cell reception is adequate for texting and voice. I used my Verizon jetpack for internet access. I received 12 digital over-the-air TV stations and many radio stations. We camped at Village Creek State Park in a Motorhome.

Lake Manatee State Park, Bradenton, Florida

Date of Stay: December, 2016 - $22.00
Overall Rating:      

$22 per night was for a mostly level sand site with 30-amp electric and water. Site #25 was wide & long enough for my 40' motorhome and tow to park on very comfortably. Even after deploying the slides there was plenty of room for extra chairs and tables, if needed. The awning had plenty of room to extend as well. Each site has a heavy wooden picnic table and fire ring and is separated from other sites by lots of native vegetation. The park experienced a wildfire several years ago and when they rebuilt the campground, they installed sprinklers atop each water spigot to allow them to keep the area wet if another fire threatens. It was quiet during my stay, even over the weekend when many families arrived...well, except for when the nearby racetrack was active but at least they don't race all night long! When I arrived, a very personable ranger who provided lots of information on the park and the local area staffed the campground office; there are many activities available in the park and surrounding area. There are no manatees in Lake Manatee as the dam prevents the manatee from entering. The park is gated at night (code provided to campers) which gives one an added feeling of security. The night sky was brilliant with stars. The campground is about five miles from most any amenity and about 15 miles from Bradenton proper. If you want to purchase firewood, you'll have to go in town as they don't sell any in the park and picking up of downed wood is prohibited. AT&T cell signal was low but usable for texting and sometimes voice. My Verizon jetpack worked well for internet reception. I received 30+ digital over-the-air TV stations and many radio stations. We camped at Lake Manatee State Park in a Motorhome.

Davy Crockett Birthplace State Park, Limestone, Tennessee

Date of Stay: November, 2016 - $14.00
Overall Rating:      

$13.75 per night (half off-season senior rate for any row except the front row nearest the river but the park was empty this time of year so I could see/hear the river without problem and the max length of stay is extended to 21 days) was for a mostly level asphalt pull-through site with 50-amp electric, water, and sewer. Follow the posted brown park signs to the park as opposed to your GPS to avoid having to do a 180° turn (I had to disconnect my tow vehicle too) to enter the park. Site #34 was wide and long enough for my 40' motorhome and tow to park on comfortably. Slides and awnings had room to extend as well. Although sites are narrow, each site has a picnic table and some room to set up chairs. The park has community fire rings but there was a burn ban when I was there. It was very quiet during my stay. When I arrived, a very personable campground host was staffing the campground office and provided lots of information on the park and the local area. The night sky was brilliant with stars. Nearby larger cities have every amenity. AT&T was acceptable for texting and voice. My Verizon jetpack worked very well for internet reception. They do have park WiFI but I did not use it. I received eight (ABC was the only major network) digital over-the-air TV stations and many radio stations. We camped at Davy Crockett Birthplace State Park in a Motorhome.

Hungry Mother State Park, Marion, Virginia

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

$36 per night was for a mostly level but narrow asphalt pad pull-though site (#24) with 50-amp electric, water, and sewer in the Camp Burson campground. The reservation web site doesn't show sites for 40'+ RVs but the sites in Camp Burson are long enough to accommodate most any length RV. There are large trees throughout the campground and some sites might be challenging to set up on-watch your slides, awning, and basement compartment clearances-but it's doable. All sites have a wooden picnic table and fire ring. Enter the campground at the campground office driveway, not the first driveway to the campground as that access is quite steep. It was pleasantly quiet during my stay, even over the weekend when families arrived. The campground office was unmanned when I arrived but the campground host came by shortly after my arrival to give me my permits as well as information about the park including maps of the trails. The campground host was friendly and helpful. There are many activities available, which you can find listed on their website as well as in the brochures they give you. The campground is about five miles outside Marion where most any amenity is available. AT&T and Verizon cell signals were low but usable. Staying in Camp Burson includes free Wi-Fi, which I did not use. I received six digital over-the-air TV stations and many radio stations. We camped at Hungry Mother State Park in a Motorhome.

Endless Caverns Resort, New Market, Virginia

Date of Stay: May, 2016 - $37.00
Overall Rating:      

$37 per night was the weekly rate for a nose down (had to put our front tires on 2" blocks), spacious packed gravel pull-though site with 50-amp electric, water, and sewer. Our site, #E35, had several trees on the site but it was easy to get positioned properly so all slides and the awning could be deployed without obstruction. Being bordered by the national forest means there are large trees throughout the campground and some sites are totally in the shade at all times. The site has a wooden picnic table and large stone fire ring. The registration parking lot gets steeper the further away you park from the building. They escort you to your site unless you've stayed here before and know your way around the campground. It was pleasantly quiet during our stay, even over the weekend when many families arrived. The campground office staff were very friendly and helpful.

There are many activities available, which you can find listed on their website, and include the Endless Caverns tour. The campground is about four miles outside New Market where the Virginia Museum of the Civil War is located. AT&T had three bars 4G LTE and Verizon was three bars 4G LTE. Wi-Fi worked better the closer to the bathroom you are. We received three digital over-the-air TV stations and many radio stations. We camped at Endless Caverns Resort in a Motorhome.

Hungry Mother State Park, Marion, Virginia

Date of Stay: May, 2016 - $42.00
Overall Rating:      

$42 per night was for a level but narrow asphalt pad pull-though site with 50-amp electric, water, and sewer. Our site, #28 in the Camp Burson campground, did have a large tree on the street side that was close to the pad so it took a little maneuvering to get situated on the site so we could extend the slides and awning plus open the basement compartments. There are large trees throughout the campground and some sites are totally in the shade at all times. The site has a wooden picnic table and fire ring. Enter the campground at the campground office driveway, not the first driveway to the campground as that access is quite steep. It was pleasantly quiet during our stay, even over the weekend when many families arrived. The campground office was unmanned when we arrived but the campground host came by shortly after our arrival to give us our permits as well as information about the park including maps of the trails.

Falls Lake SRA / Rolling View Campground, Wake Forest, North Carolina

Date of Stay: April, 2016 - $18.00
Overall Rating:      

$18 per night was for a packed sand pull-though site with 30-amp electric and water. Our site, #B002 in the Rolling View campground, was shaded by large trees. The site had a composite picnic table and fire ring. The campground was built when large RVs were not being made and everyone camped in pop-ups or tents. No matter which way you enter the site, the approach is steep. If the picnic table was repositioned, you might be able to position a large RV on the spacious area so that it would be level. It was pleasantly quiet during our stay even over the weekend when many families arrived. The road through the campground is asphalt and wide. The park access was unmanned when we arrived but a park ranger came around later to check us in and advise of their policies, which include no alcohol. Our site was by a stream that really rushed after the several thunderstorms we had. There are many activities available, which you can find listed on their website. The campground is centrally between Durham and Raleigh where any amenity is available. AT&T and Verizon cell signals were low but usable. We received 21 digital over-the-air TV stations and many radio stations. We camped at Falls Lake SRA / Rolling View Campground in a Motorhome.

Date of Stay: April, 2016 - $18.00
Overall Rating:      

$18 per night was for a level packed sand pull-though site with 30-amp electric and water. Our site, #15, was mostly shaded by large trees. The site had a wooden picnic table and fire ring. It was pleasantly quiet during our stay even over the weekend when many families arrived. The road through the campground is bumpy and winds through the trees but we made it to our site in our 40' motorhome towing a vehicle. The office, as it seems with most SC parks, is only open from 11 a.m. to noon. The Whip-poor-wills chant all through the night and the squirrels, butterflies, deer, and birds offer entertainment during the day. The campground host and park rangers were very friendly and helpful. There are many activities available, which you can find listed on their website. The campground is about 12 miles outside Dillon where most any amenity is available. AT&T and Verizon cell signal was low but usable.

Aiken State Natural Area, Windsor, South Carolina

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

$20 per night was for a level packed sand pull-though site with 30-amp electric and water. Our site, #12, was completely shaded by large trees. The site had a wooden picnic table and fire ring on the "wrong" side. As stated in previous reviews, it's a bit challenging to drive over the bumpy, narrow, tree-lined campground roads in a 40' motorhome towing a vehicle but it can be done. It was pleasantly quiet during our stay. The facility is well maintained and very attractive. The campground host was very friendly and helpful as was the park ranger. There are many activities available, which you can find listed on their website. The nearby city of Aiken is gorgeous in the old downtown area and has every amenity available. AT&T cell service was nonexistent and Verizon service was acceptable. We received eight digital over-the-air TV stations and many radio stations.

$30 per night was for a level packed sand pull-though site with 50-amp electric and water. Our site, #22, was completely shaded by large moss covered trees. The large site had a concrete picnic table and fire ring. It was pleasantly quiet during our stay, even over a weekend when families with children arrived. A Heritage Farm on site takes one back in history. There are four miles of hiking trails and 13 miles of equestrian trails. The facility is well maintained and very attractive. There are many activities available, which you can find listed on their website. The nearby town of Douglas has shopping if you need to pick up anything. AT&T and Verizon service was good.
