Oasis Campground and Waterpark (formerly Hancock/ Stevens Pt South KOA, Hancock, Wisconsin

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $49.00
Overall Rating:

Stayed Saturday night of the Labor Day weekend as we were passing through the area. Newer park in this area and is built in the modern KOA style with big club house/office and laundry combined. Site we had was crushed gravel pull through about 80 feet with electric pedestal and water placed well and two sewer connects to give you a choice. Coded interior gate and outer gate is closed at 10:00 PM. A good stop but a little high dollar for us. We camped at Oasis Campground and Waterpark (formerly Hancock/ Stevens Pt South KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Upper Peninsula State Fair, Escanaba, Michigan

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

Stayed here while passing through the area on Labor Day weekend.
Old tractor, flea market and gun show going on at the grounds but no problem finding a very nice 30 amp/water site so we could walk to the event. Very nice men manning the gate directed us to the envelope payment box, filled it out, put a twenty in, put it in the secure box and went about our business. We were advised about the pancake breakfast in the morning so we will take this in and enjoy this gem of a campground in the UP. Would use this place again if in this area. We camped at Upper Peninsula State Fair in a Fifth Wheel.

Holiday Shores RV Resort and Golf Course, Durand, Michigan

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $38.00
Overall Rating:

Used this park to stay in when we visited friends who stay in a seasonal park up the road. Site was back in grass with 50 amp service, good water pressure and sewer connection. The park is large with about 95% seasonal/summer folks. They keep a number of transient-nightly-weekly sites on the golf course side with some concrete, some grass sites with full hook-ups. Office staff friendly and we met one of the owners who was very friendly and accommodating when we wanted to switch sites. Would return when in this area visiting our friends. We camped at Holiday Shores RV Resort and Golf Course in a Fifth Wheel.

Elkhart County Fairgrounds, Goshen, Indiana

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $32.00
Overall Rating:

Stayed here again for the annual FROG rally. About 800 units this year. Electric and water service very strong for the number of units on the systems. Rained several times during the week but ponding was at a minimum. Elkhart county and city of Goshen operate this campgrounds/fairgrounds like a well oiled machine. Office staff very pleasant and helpful. If you are in this area, whether visiting or business with the rig factories you can't go wrong staying here. We camped at Elkhart County Fairgrounds in a Fifth Wheel.

Interstate RV Park, Davenport, Iowa

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

Stayed here and reviewed this park before. Decent park if you're visiting the Quad Cities. Power and water worked as they should but park is apparentaly replacing some or all of the sewer connections so new ones are 8-10-or 12 inches above ground level. Nice pool and office staff friendly accommodating. Having said all that, the park is getting a little run down looking and could use some TLC and regravel the transient sites. Some sites as we noticed were a little hard to level. Alao some seasonal/permanent sites were looking a little junky. We would stay again when visiting friends in Davenport. We camped at Interstate RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Crystal Springs RV Resort, Ellendale, Minnesota

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $32.00
Overall Rating:

Stay here when we travel to southern Minnesota and have reviewed before. Sites are sand based with gravel cover that drains fast with no ponding. Utilities placed well in sites and have 30/50 amp service, good water, and sewer connect placed in site for easy connection and dump. Laundry and new spacious shower/toilet rooms now open in the new community building. Private lake has walking path all around it with benches for relaxing. Owners/builders live on site and you can buy in if you wish and have concrete pad and casita on your site. We highly recommend. We camped at Crystal Springs RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Adventureland Campground, Altoona, Iowa

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $1.00
Overall Rating:

Stayed here as workampers for Adventureland amusement park May, June, and July. Had a pull-thru near one of the laundries. Utilities placed in sites well and all worked well. Water very good out of tap with just your normal water filter on it. Very clean and well kept. The mowing and triming crew, who were also workampers, knew their business and were careful around the rigs. One of the nicest large parks near a major city we have stayed in, with all the shopping and eating places you would want near by. Also able to have HDT and 5er in the pull thru site with room to spare. We camped at Adventureland Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

WinStar RV Park, Thackerville, Oklahoma

Date of Stay: May, 2016 - $31.00
Overall Rating:

Not too much to comment on as I have reviewed this park before. Remains a top rv park connected to the worlds largest casino under one roof. The Saturday night we were there it was fairly full becauce of the star entertainment going on the main showroom. Hotels and all parking lots around the casino were full. Running extra shuttles. All sites concrete with concrete roads. Hookup worked as expected with real strong water pressure. Laundry was spotless with 1.00 wash and 1.00 dry with good commercial machines. All in all a good stop for a night or two and don't forget free senior (50 and over) buffet breakfasts on Wed., and Thurs. Must have player card to take advantage. Our night this trip was comped. We camped at WinStar RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Sonny's RV Park, Lexington, Texas

Date of Stay: April, 2016 - $7.00
Overall Rating:

If you are looking for paved roads, concrete sites with a pool and other high dollar amenities keep moving. If you want peace and quiet with a mix of pull thrus and backins with 30/50 electric, sewer and well water that is great right from the tap, then you want this park for a night, a week, or what ever. Owners live on site and very friendly and are always working around the park. Park host or owner will help you get set up. Some permanents but most have clean sites and park is quiet even though on state highway. Laundry and showers available if needed. Not much to do in town but an hours drive is Austin an other way is Bryan/College Station. If 65 or over ask for retired rates. You will be pleased. We were and glad we stayed for a month. Don't forget Snows BBQ on Saturdays. We camped at Sonny's RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

On Saturdays go over town to Snows BBQ, on of the top bbq joints in the state of Texas. They are only open Saturday mornings until the q runs out. Secret tip: call Snows on Friday late afternoons and order it from the cash only outside area an avoid the long lines. Order your meat and when you arrive ask for your sides. CASH only outside, no credit but they have change for your bills. Order the fatty brisket which is real moist and the excellent sausage and you can thank me when you see me.

Marina Beach RV Resort, Port Aransas, Texas

Date of Stay: March, 2016 - $16.00
Overall Rating:

Stayed two months here after two winters in different park on the island. Complete 360 difference in park management and service. Manager here very competent and extremely nice to us and all the people in the park. Owners stay here in their motorhome as they are updating and getting the park back to excellent condition business wise after some turbulence last year with former manager. All sites fhu, wide concrete streets, long concrete sites with patio area and room for tv and boat, car, etc. Pot lucks, breakfast, bingo, cards, happy hour daily during the winter months. Happy to be here with 15 other couples from the other park. We will return. We camped at Marina Beach RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

San Antonio KOA, San Antonio, Texas

Date of Stay: December, 2015 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

Reviewed this KOA before. Had res for us and friends who also have long truck and rig and were given the sites that were requested when I called. The lady that showed us to the sites actually stopped our friends and radioed office to change their site to the empty one on our left side instead of right so our friends did not have to negotiate around a tree that was close when turning in. Excellent awareness by this person. Power,water,sewer hook ups worked as expected. Rained hard but our sites had no pooling as others had. Hunt Brothers pizza good and delivered to site. Ride the 24 bus downtown and back and save the high dollar parking fees. We camped at San Antonio KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

This is San Antonio so lots to see and do if you have the time. Leave your truck or toad and take the#24 bus down town and back. about a 15 to 20 minute ride and bus stops at Commerce and Alamo and is short walk to Alamo Square. Pick it up back up at St. Marys and Market across from the Drury Hotel. You can get to the Riverwalk from Alamo Square. Stop at the city run visitor center directly across the street from the front of the Alamo. Public toilets.

Peach Country RV Park, Stonewall, Texas

Date of Stay: November, 2015 - $13.00
Overall Rating:

Stayed here in 2014 (see Nov. 2014 review) and one thing that has changed is the previous managers who were very good have retired and the new management team is also a very good, courteous, pleasant, team that is on top of things and easy to get along with. One other change is they keep 8 to 10 sites open for over-niters and weeklys instead of filling most sites with long term or winter folks. Friendly park and good value. $385.00 monthly including electricity. Will return next year. Extremely big rig friendly with 80 foot pull-thrus. We camped at Peach Country RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Overall Rating:

Stayed here numerous times when passing through and it remains a large clean rv park affiliated with the casino. Pads and interior roads concrete. The sites and placement of utilities have been noted by other reviewers so no need post again. What needs to be noted are good points such as price is back at $20.00 Sunday thru Thursdays with Players card and the free senior breakfast for 50 years and over Wednesdays and Thursdays, with players cards. Cards free and buffet breakfast very good. Shuttle, 24/7 from park so get signed up, get your card enjoy the casino and park. We camped at WinStar RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Its a casino, the worlds largest under one roof with a large rv park next to it so it is what it is. Name entertainment and they are building a new coliseum an convention/entertainment theater east of the rv park what some staff said will be three times what they have now, with rumors of a new 1500 room hotel next.

Do not use KOA parks too often but when we travel north and south on 35 and the KTA we like this one. Owners live on site and maintain a nice clean park with utilities placed properly and work properly in the sites. Small store with rv supplies, ice, and a coffee bar. Staff friendly and competent. There is some train noise on occasion but RR was here before the park. All in all a decent clean park to stop at when in this area or traveling on the turnpike.
