Hords Creek Lake, Lakeside Campground COE, Coleman, Texas

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

I have stayed here many times and always enjoy my visits. The attendants are friendly and polite, the grounds and facilities are clean, and the scenery is pretty. The campground is quite large and most camping spots are large and private. The nights are quiet and the dark sky is a welcomed change from the city. We camped at Hords Creek Lake, Lakeside Campground COE in a Travel Trailer.

Coleman has necessities you may have to replenish, and nearby Abilene offers much in the way of museums, shopping, etc... Coleman does have a pretty main street with some nice renovated storefronts.

Horse Cave KOA, Horse Cave, Kentucky

Date of Stay: March, 2015 - $29.00
Overall Rating:      

I easily reserved my camping spot on KOA's corporate website. I arrived at dusk and the office was closed. No problem there, as I am always able to find my site by using the map that is provided in the envelope typically left posted at the kiosk for late arrivals. The problem is that there was no envelope that told which spot I was assigned. Also, there were no paper maps to take with me in the camper as I drove around. The same situation was faced by the camper who arrived just after I did, and he must have circled the campground for 15 minutes trying to find his site, going faster with each pass as he grew aggravated. If you have trouble with noise, you may want to stay elsewhere, as this KOA is located just off very busy I-65, at an interchange with a truck stop. The engine brake noise was a bit much. On the good side, the bathroom was clean. However, the trash can out front was overflowing. We camped at Horse Cave KOA in a Tent.

I have a small camper and can handle the roads, but there are some challenging steep grades and sharp curves for the bigger campers. Interstate noise was a problem.

Johnson Creek Camp COE, Jefferson, Texas

Date of Stay: February, 2015 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

My experience here was a good one. The campground is on a beautiful lake and the grounds and facilities are kept very clean. Additionally, the attendants were pleasant and helpful. The sites can be a bit closer and exposed than I usually prefer, but it is the off season and there were very few campers. We camped at Johnson Creek Camp COE in a Truck Camper.

Nearby Jefferson, TX is an interesting little historical town, known for having steamships before the log jam that formed the waterway was removed. The countryside here is very nice, with tall pine trees and great bird-watching locations, including right in the campground itself.

Poverty Point Reservoir State Park, Delhi, Louisiana

Date of Stay: February, 2015 - $16.00
Overall Rating:      

This park is top-notch due to the ease of reservation, cost, cleanliness, and lot spacing. The service was great as well, especially the park ranger who manned the office when I arrived a bit late. I'm a clean freak, and I always worry about what the showers will be like. There was no need to worry here, as all facilities, including the laundry, were sparkling clean. I will stay here again. In fact, I liked it so much that I added a night during my stay.

Delhi is a small town, but I enjoyed it and the short drive to Vicksburg, MS to visit the Civil War sites. Camp sites range from tucked away and shaded spots, to exposed larger sites where larger RVs and boat trailers can be parked. We camped at Poverty Point Reservoir State Park in a Truck Camper.

Collingsworth County Pioneer's Park, Wellington, Texas

Date of Stay: November, 2014 - $10.00
Overall Rating:      

This smaller RV park lies adjacent to the State of Texas' rest area and shares bathrooms with it (there are no showers available, but the bathrooms were very clean and modern). At $10/day, it is hard to beat. The attendant was friendly and helpful. Sites are close together, but they are shaded and fellow campers were quiet throughout my stay.

The nearby towns of Wellington and Shamrock offer gas, groceries, Dollar Stores, etc. Check out Wellington's downtown square and the newly-restored Ritz Theatre that is fantastic for movies or concerts. FDR's very first shelterbelt of trees from the Dust Bowl days lies about 40 miles east, near the town of Mangum, OK (check online for exact location). Mangum also has an attractive downtown. We camped at Collingsworth County Pioneer's Park in a Travel Trailer.

As mentioned, the towns of Wellington, Shamrock, and Mangum, OK are worth the short drive. Shamrock lies along the original Route 66 and the art deco gas station is very interesting.

Hords Creek Lake, Lakeside Campground COE, Coleman, Texas

Date of Stay: November, 2014 - $16.00
Overall Rating:      

COE campgrounds have a consistency I like. Both gate attendants I met were very friendly and helpful - top notch. The bathrooms and showers were clean, although there is a bit of age on them. The grounds were clean and there is plenty of privacy thanks to the many trees and large land area this camp occupies. Deer are everywhere, so following the speed limit is highly recommended. I camped during a weeknight, and I was about the only person in the place. The campground is away from major highways and railroads, so it is very quiet. However, cell service is spotty in lower areas. The town of Coleman is seven miles away and offers items you might need. $16? Hard to beat. We camped at Hords Creek Lake, Lakeside Campground COE in a Travel Trailer.

Deer are everywhere and will run out in front of your vehicle. Nearby Coleman is a neat little town, but I know of no major attractions. I just enjoyed the peace and quiet during my weekday stop.

Corral RV Park, Dalhart, Texas

Date of Stay: November, 2014 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

The lady who checked us in was very polite and friendly. (They are in the process of remodeling the office.) The park grounds are clean, and the restrooms and laundry were spotless. Spaces are wide enough for comfort and there are some trees throughout the park. Road noise was pronounced, and unfortunately, the odor from the livestock feedlots could be nauseating, depending upon wind direction. This is a well-managed park run by nice folks and we would stay here again. We camped at Corral RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Dalhart's XIT Museum is an excellent way to learn about the famous ranch and the early days of Dalhart. Walk down Denrock Street as well -it's very nice.

Marathon Motel and RV Park, Marathon, Texas

Date of Stay: April, 2014 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

This RV park is tastefully designed and well managed. All personnel were polite, friendly and helpful. The gravel sites are fairly large and most campers are mature adults looking to escape hustle and bustle. A great feature of the park is the relaxing low-light adobe courtyard. For stargazers, the owners have designed the lighting of the property to be low-key. Wi-Fi and cable TV worked well, and the restrooms were spotless. For those campers who might desire a change of scenery, the motel offers duplex cabins that look fantastic. From its retro highway sign to its classy courtyard and personal touches, this is a great stop. The nearby train tracks may bother some, but as a rail fan, it just added to the very cool atmosphere of this business. We camped at Marathon Motel and RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Willis Creek COE, Granger, Texas

Date of Stay: March, 2014 - $22.00
Overall Rating:      

The campground is located in a quiet rural area on the shore of Granger Lake, 40 miles northeast of Austin. The lake is quite popular this comfortable time of year with boaters and fishermen. The online reservation system was informative and easy to use, and the gate attendant was friendly and helpful. The pads are level, paved, and spaced far apart, so there is plenty of room. I visited during a very busy time at the lake - spring break - and the bathrooms showed it. They were too nasty to use. Based on the pristine condition of the rest of the park and campground, I imagine this is not the norm. Clean bathrooms and Wi-Fi would have resulted in a score of "8" or "9". We camped at Willis Creek COE in a Motorhome.

Buffalo / I-40 KOA, Hurricane Mills, Tennessee

Date of Stay: April, 2013 - $35.00
Overall Rating:      

The campground staff are very friendly and helpful. I arrived after dark and the site map was waiting for me. The grounds were clean, as were the bathrooms and showers. Highway noise was an issue in the tent area of the campground, but on the "plus" side, there is a nearby modern truck stop that stocks many items. I will stay here again. We camped at Buffalo / I-40 KOA in a Motorhome.

This is a nice campground. It has a great office/store/restaurant, staffed by friendly people who appreciate your business. The grounds were clean, as were the bathrooms and the showers. The campground is in a beautiful spot, and is just minutes from the pretty town of Fredericksburg, PA. I will make this a regular stop between Texas and Maine.

Camping here was a great experience, from start to finish. The person who took my reservation via phone was friendly and polite, and the campground was clean, well laid out, and quiet. Although the office/store was closed when I arrived late, it looked very nice and orderly. The showers and bathrooms are tastefully decorated, modern and clean. This is a well-run business. We camped at Rusk KOA in a Tent.

Sweetwater / I-75 / Exit 62 KOA, Sweetwater, Tennessee

Date of Stay: April, 2013 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

This KOA is located in a great spot, near enough to the interstate for easy access, yet far enough away in a wooded area for peace and privacy. It is also just minutes away from the very tasteful historic downtown of Sweetwater. The staff was friendly and the grounds were clean. The bathroom and showers were all in good working order and very clean. I plan on staying here again. We camped at Sweetwater / I-75 / Exit 62 KOA in a Tent.
