OK RV Park, Holbrook, Arizona

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

Just off the the main drag and a half mile to I-40. Large check in area. Staff was very friendly and helped us into our site. Exterior roads are paved, interior roads and sites a mix of dirt and gravel. Seemed like most of the big rigs were placed in Yellow 1-7. Very long but very narrow. Sites are level. No grass anywhere. A few large shade trees. Utilities worked fine. Good water pressure. Very good WiFi. Restrooms are old and uninviting. 25 miles from the I-40 entrance to Petrified Forest. Muffins and coffee in the a.m. Great display of petrified wood. We camped at OK RV Park in a Motorhome.

USA RV Park, Gallup, New Mexico

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

On Route 66, which parallels the Interstate. There are truck stops right at exit 116, and then a mile to the RV Park. Very busy RV Park. Lots of turnover each day. Check in area is very spacious, which is good because the second day of our stay there were 8 RV's queued to check in. Staff is very friendly. They have a large general store and gift shop, and the night we were there barbeque dinner was available supplied by an outside caterer. Roads are paved and easy to navigate. Sites are gravel, level, no grass (anywhere) and a patio just large enough to fit the picnic table. The sites are such that you share a utility side (pretty tight) and a patio side ( pretty spacious.) Utilities worked fine. Restrooms were very nice. WiFi was mostly terrible. Cable available for additional charge. Some shade trees. About 5 miles from downtown, straight down Route 66. No street noise. We camped at USA RV Park in a Motorhome.

Homestead RV Park, Kirtland, New Mexico

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

A dirt parking lot with utilities. A little gravel to keep the dust down. No grass. No trees. No picnic tables. Pull thru sites are just long enough to keep toad hooked up to a big rig. Wide and mostly level. Cable with 24 channels. WiFi worked very well. Utilities worked well. Road noise but not terrible. Restrooms are very nice. Price is right. We camped at Homestead RV Park in a Motorhome.

Bayfield Riverside RV Park, Bayfield, Colorado

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $49.00
Overall Rating:      

Two things happened which cause the low rating. We were coming from Alamosa over Wolf Creek Pass to Bayfield. It had snowed all night in the mountains and we were concerned about road conditions. I called the RV park in Bayfield to see if they had any real time information. Over a period of 4 hours, they never picked up the phone and never called back. When we checked in and mentioned this, no apology, nothing. Kudos to the Alamosa KOA for the phone calls they made and tapping into live camera feeds on the pass to give us the comfort we could safely make the trip. Then we get placed in one of the worst sites in the RV Park. So much for calling eight months earlier to make the reservation, asking for and being assigned a specific site on the pond for a week stay. No explanation, no attempt to assign us a similar site. We were dumped into what I would describe as the trailer park section, with an odd assortment of sites laid out very poorly. Our site was tight. There was a back-in half site next to us, angled such that our slides nearly touched. The grass area was overgrown, unlevel and full of weeds. This could have been a completely different experience if we were treated as though they gave a damn about us and our safety and we were in a site that we made a special effort to secure. The entrance and front area are beautifully landscaped. The grounds, ponds and streams are all lovely. The restrooms are nice and I can't believe I'm saying this but the softest toilet paper ever. Utilities worked fine. Good internet. Extensive cable network including 2 HBO channels an channel guide. Sites are level and gravel. Roads are paved in the front, gravel in back. We camped at Bayfield Riverside RV Park in a Motorhome.

Pueblo KOA, Pueblo, Colorado

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $47.00
Overall Rating:      

About 8 miles north of town. As others have mentioned, it is very disconcerting to take the northbound exit only to find yourself staring at what looks more like a flood channel tunnel than a vehicular tunnel. 13' 3' overhead and a bit tight on the sides when you're trying to line up a 43 foot rig and toad. We opted to get back on the highway and try the next exit. Same issue, but 13' 10" overhead and a little more area to line up. We made it through fine. Back on the highway and the southbound exit dumps you off with a sharp u-turn to get on the frontage road. The worst access to an RV park, ever. They are doing property improvements, as the sign says, please bear with us. Another sign to warn you of a wicked cut in the road as you approach would be nice as well. From there, our experience was actually nice. The check in area was spacious. Staff was friendly. Not a lick of grass. Everything is gravel, from the roads to the sites to the area around your site; sometimes distinguished by different color gravel, other times not. We stayed in site E-3. M1-3 sites are very spacious with paver patios, fire pit, iron furniture; worth the premium if you plan to spend time at your site and enjoy the outdoors. Utilities were good, WiFi good, water pressure good, 50 cable channels and channel guide. Sites level, some shade, most sites satellite friendly. We camped at Pueblo KOA in a Motorhome.

Alamosa KOA, Alamosa, Colorado

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $43.00
Overall Rating:      

Right off the highway, about five miles east of Alamosa and a 30 minute drive to Great Sand Dunes. Entrance area wide an long. Staff friendly and helpful. When we were checking out, they assisted us greatly in determining if Wolf Creek Pass was open and safe. The roads are hard pack dirt and easy to navigate. Lots of pools of water after a night's rain. Sites are thick gravel, level and long enough to stay hooked up. Decent spacing. Grass patio area with rickety picnic table. We stayed in site 48. Two sets of restrooms, one towards the back of the campground disguised as a cabin, very handy. Lots of rabbits. No cable and 3 OTA. Utilities worked fine but low water pressure. Internet was mostly good. Most sites satellite friendly. We camped at Alamosa KOA in a Motorhome.

Convenient location tucked behind strip mall with lots of fast food options and other restaurants close by. About ten minutes from downtown Wichita. Paved roads and level sites. Cutout for toad. Lush green grass on patio side. No picnic table. Utilities worked fine. 74 cable channels. Very nice restrooms. Friendly staff. WiFi very spotty. Grassy area a little congested with placement of neighbor's utilities and large round metal contraption. Nice dog walking area (on leash) but no poop bags. No shade. Satellite friendly.

RJ's RV Park, Garden City, Kansas

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

It is what it is. An RV park whose time has come and gone baby gone. The place is a wreck and you can tell the owners could care less. But you don't have many choices along Highway 50/400 so you suck it up and make do. A tight entrance, bumpy roads, dead grass, dilapidated picnic tables, trees that need trimming, a restroom without soap, permanent residents with unkept sites. The utilities actually worked fine even though the power pedestal was at a 45 degree angle. WiFi was spotty and SLOW. Cable requires a special box. Staff was friendly. The price was in line with what you got. It seemed like all the overnighters couldn't wait to get out in the morning. We camped at RJ's RV Park in a Motorhome.

Worlds of Fun Village, Kansas City, Missouri

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $44.00
Overall Rating:      

Conveniently located just off I-435. Be careful, your GPS may try to take you to the amusement park. RV Park directions are good. You stay on Parvin and turn in by the Oceans of Fun portion. Stay left at the pay for parking booths and they'll wave you by. The registration queue is large, but like the entire RV park, at a steep grade. I was afraid to put it in park and let my foot off the brake.

Check-in was efficient, staff was professional but not very friendly. The roads are paved and easy to navigate. The sites are tiered. The majority are pull through, long and concrete but not level. The sites are long enough that you can position your rig pretty well. Nice concrete patio with large picnic table and grassy area. Each site has its own garbage can. Utilities worked well. Really nice, solid power pedestal. Cypress trees at each site provide privacy. Not a lot of shade as trees are on the smaller side.

Nice view of KC in the distance. You'll have a view of the roller coaster out your windshield and hear the screams. Beautiful sunsets. Restrooms are nice. WiFi was great. Cable with lots of channels and a channel guide. We camped at Worlds of Fun Village in a Motorhome.

Pine Grove RV Park and Campground, Greenwood, Nebraska

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

Nice location off I-80 and close enough to visit both Omaha and Lincoln. Big rig diesel friendly gas station at exit. You go about a mile to get to the RV park only to realize you have ended back up a spit from I-80, so it is a bit noisy. Surrounded by corn and soybean fields. Those in the front row have a nice, unobstructed view. Good signage to RV park. Long entrance and plenty of space to stop and register. Owners are VERY patriotic, with all kinds of flags, signs and statutes honoring our country and service men and women. Staff is friendly. The roads and sites are gravel. The roads are easy to navigate. The sites are long and level and have a grassy patio and picnic table. Some shade but most sites are satellite friendly. No cable but about ten OTA channels. Utilities worked fine. WiFi was good but you get just one voucher for use on just one device per site. Additional vouchers must be purchased online for $1.89 per day ($10/wk) for each additional device. Restrooms are old but clean. The plumbing in the showers looks like it's a hundred years old. We camped at Pine Grove RV Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

Des Moines West KOA, Adel, Iowa

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $49.00
Overall Rating:      

About a mile and a half off I-80. Not actually in West DesMoines, maybe 15 miles further west. Registration area is wide but not very long. We pulled in behind another rig and our toad was sticking into the road. Staff was friendly. Host will take you to your site. Roads are sites are hard pack dirt. Sites were level. Most are pull through. Roads were easy to navigate. We had a deluxe site with large concrete patio, large grassy area, fire pit and BBQ. Nice end site in the very back of the park. There are two large evaporative (sewer) ponds further back but they didn't seem to emit any foul odor. Other sites had a grass patio area. We had a power issue the second day. Not sure what happened but lost service twice in 40 minutes. We managed our power consumption afterwards and didn't have further issues, but we were plugged into 50 amp and only running the air at the time so not sure why there was a problem. Nice restrooms. Cable with 15 channels. Satellite friendly sites. WiFi was good. We camped at Des Moines West KOA in a Motorhome.

Very convenient to I-80. Roads and sites are hard pack dirt. Getting out from our site, #59, was a bit tight. Sites are level and long. Each has a concrete patio, but ours and several others we noticed were in terrible shape. A lawsuit waiting to happen. Picnic table. The utilities worked good and most sites looked to be satellite friendly. The restrooms were nice. Staff was very friendly and courteous. We camped at Interstate RV Park in a Motorhome.

Nice enough RV park. Roads are hard pack dirt, easy enough to navigate. Check in area is suitable for unhooking if necessary. We should have, except staff said we didn't need to. Except we did. Our site, 724, is in a section where the sites are at a 90 degree angle from the road, and our site had a VERY heavy fire pit in the back patio area. I tried, and missed. I about broke my back moving the fire pit. Sites are a combination of grass and gravel. They are level and have a grass patio area with picnic table. Utilities and WiFi worked well. Cable is an extra charge. Restrooms are good. Huge fenced dog exercise area. We camped at Elkhart Campground in a Motorhome.

Haas Lake Park RV Campground, New Hudson, Michigan

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $48.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a huge campground, beautifully situated around four lakes and endless green lawns. It's almost 3 miles around the perimeter! Coming down Haas Rd. to the campground, you leave pavement for the last mile and have to travel over a lousy dirt road and compete with big trucks coming in and out of gravel pit. There's a nasty little hole on the right just as you leave the pavement so watch out for it. Registration was efficient but staff seemed grumpy. The interior roads and sites and hard pack dirt. The overwhelming majority of sites are back in, many on the lakefronts. The spacing of the sites is very inconsistent, with many generously spaced and other areas more tightly packed. There are a handful of pull thru sites, and we had one, which we would highly recommend. Z1, a super long pull through near lake 4 with a patio area so large that the fire pit was about 60 feet away. The sites are level. Most seem satellite friendly. No cable. The utilities worked fine but the water pressure seemed low. The WiFi was o.k. early in the morning and late at night and completely nonexistent the rest of the time. Very frustrating. The restrooms are nice enough but poorly spaced. They are all in the front section of the campground and it is literally a five minute DRIVE to the nearest restroom from the lake 4 area. A $10 deposit gets you a key card to get in and out of the campground. The lakes are very nice, two with beaches and all types of water fowl to view. Lots of seasonal campers with their golf carts. Plenty of dumpsters. We camped at Haas Lake Park RV Campground in a Motorhome.

Thunder Bay Golf & RV Resort, Hillman, Michigan

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $35.00
Overall Rating:      

Except for not having restrooms at the RV park, this was a very comfortable, relaxing and enjoyable stay. About a mile from Hillman, not much of a town. 20 miles from Alpena. Check in is a little crazy. You pull in next to the pro shop and then have to squeeze through the putting green and the 1st tee with all the golf carts to get to the RV park. The roads are paved. The RV park is small, just 2 rows and maybe 30 sites. The first row overlooks the golf course. The sites are asphalt and very long. They supply wood blocks that they ask you to place under the jacks. The sites are level. There is an asphalt patio with table and chairs. There is a spacious grassy area at each site. The utilities worked fine. All sites appeared to be satellite friendly and there is cable as well. The WiFi was very good. The golf course looked very nice. You can walk or bike on the cart path early morning or around dusk. We camped at Thunder Bay Golf & RV Resort in a Motorhome.
