Mueller State Park, Divide, Colorado

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

Our favorite place to camp, period. This year we had 5 RVs in our group camping at Mueller. We were all so very pleased with the sites, even though they only provide electric at each site. Water is easily accessible in every loop and at the dump station. Two of our campsites were in Revenuer's Ridge and three were in Conifer Loop. The rangers are friendly and helpful, the sites are clean and well maintained with pretty level paved parking, mostly pull-thru. Do be sure to watch length of RV when you reserve, a few aren't suitable for large units. The shower house and laundry room are clean and convenient. Part of our family stayed in the large Ponderosa Cabin, which was our first time using a cabin. Every one of our group loved Mueller's campsites and the cabin was perfect for gathering to eat and sit on the large deck to watch the deer and view Pike's Peak and surrounding beauty. We highly recommend this cabin. Large, comfortable and stunning views out the back windows. We camped at Mueller State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Mueller has 50 miles of hiking trails which are well marked. ( One of the trails is now open for pets on a trial basis). Grouse Mountain Overlook is not to be missed. The Wapiti Trail which begins at the Visitor Center is really nice and an easy .8 miles. The Crags is a fabulous place to hike outside the park, only 4 miles from Mueller. Eleven Mile Canyon is beautiful and a great place to picnic and fish and climb on rocks. Whitewater rafting is available about 1.25 hours away in Canon City

WaKeeney KOA, WaKeeney, Kansas

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

Great stop easy off highway. Sites have nicely maintained grassy areas with a tree here and there, and there is quite a bit of space between sites. Service was friendly and all the utilities worked. For an overnight you can't beat this KOA. The dog walking areas are really nice with one fenced area and one large open field for running. The only negatives to this KOA is that the pool, though clean, is really in need of an upgrade. Also the playground equipment could use an upgrade too. But we would stay here again when passing through. We camped at WaKeeney KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

RJ's RV Park, Garden City, Kansas

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $29.00
Overall Rating:      

Cheap. Utilities are good. Pull thru sites of gravel. Grass between sites. Most sites pretty close together but many vacant sites. Several permanent sites, some with older RVs in poor repair. Quite a few shade trees. Convenient to Hiway. Gravel roads in very poor repair. Quiet place to stay, friendly staff in office. For an overnight it's adequate. With a little upkeep it would be good. The RV park at the truck stop travel plaza across town looks much newer and nicer but there is no shade there. We camped at RJ's RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Canning Creek COE, Council Grove, Kansas

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $10.00
Overall Rating:      

Beautiful lake in the Flint Hills of Kansas. We truly enjoyed our stay in this COE campground. The majority of the sites are double wide and easy to level. And well spaced from your neighbors in most cases. Every site has covered picnic tables on concrete, new barbecue grills, great fire pits. There is abundance of beautiful shade and all sites have close view of lake, most are lakeside. Such a peaceful quiet campground, and the camp hosts are very friendly and helpful. There is a lot of green space for yard games, etc. Playground equipment is not the latest, but certainly adequate. Several campsites have concrete pads and beautiful open views of the lovely lake. Verizon signal okay but not excellent, OTA TV is basically 2 channels. There is a hiking trail near the dam which is 1.4 miles through a beautiful wooded area along a stream and over walking bridges. Town is only 1 mile from lake and has everything you might need; excellent grocery store and nice hardware store. We hated leaving, and can't wait to return. It's a perfect place to camp. The only negative on this campground is the dump station is quite unlevel front to back, and small. We ended up using the dump station at another campground just next to Canning Creek. Which was certainly no big issue. We camped at Canning Creek COE in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

This lake has a small marina that advertises boat/kayak rentals. Hays House in town is a historic restaurant and nice place to dine. Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve is about 20 miles south and worth the trip. Topeka, the state capitol, is 49 miles away. Manhattan, 38 miles north, offers the Konza Trail which is a great place to hike. Campground has abundance of birds and wonderful night sky. Fishing available and popular here.

Topeka / Capital City KOA, Topeka, Kansas

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

Lovely KOA. Very spacious campground with beautifully maintained grounds. 3 fishing ponds, really nice walking trail through the woods and along a creek. Barn/office building is super nice, with tables and chairs and game areas, as well as a cozy living room area with comfy furniture, tv, and book exchange. Separate exercise room. The actual campsites are pretty nice. We were in a deluxe site with patio and swing and it was super nice, but not necessarily worth the extra cost. Especially with gravel site pad that wasn't level. Friendly staff. Road noise during the day, quiet at night. We enjoyed our stay and would stay again. Really nice place. Verizon signal good. We camped at Topeka / Capital City KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

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

Camped in Seminole area. This is a great campground with nice large campsites on concrete pads. Patio with table, grill, lantern holders, fire pit. Concrete pad is large enough for plenty of room in front of camper. View of vety large beautiful lake from every campsite. Half of campground is 50 amp FHU sites. The others are W/E. Lots of trees and wildlife. Paved roads throughout. Playground and picnic pavilion are nice and new. Marina in park, golf course and lodge with cabins also. Hiking trails. Toilet and pay showers are just adequate, at best. Camp host friendly and helpful. Verizon signal good and many TV stations with antenna. We camped at Sequoyah State Park & Lodge (formerly Western Hills Guest Ranch) in a Fifth Wheel.

Petit Jean State Park, Morrilton, Arkansas

Date of Stay: October, 2016 - $12.00
Overall Rating:      

Beautiful state park high on a mountain. Hiking is amazing. Well spaced campsites. Loop A has FHU and some sites are next to a smallish lake. Loop B, C , and D have W/E. B is a bit more open and grassy. C and D are quite wooded with smaller sites. B loop has some sites that are quite small and unappealing, and some that are pretty nice. We were in 44 loop B, which is very nice and level and large. Tried online reservations which was too cumbersome. It is a better idea to call for reservations in order to insure a site to fit your RV. Verizon phone signal good. Several tv channels with antenna. We camped at Petit Jean State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Excellent KOA. All sites shaded. Property is pristine. Friendly owners. Nice dog off leash area. Pool is super nice. Nice green spaces. Not a lot of grass in some of the individual campsites, some are quite grassy. Spacing and utilities are good. Great walking path in wooded area that we enjoyed a lot. Small fishing pond with canoes available. Nicely stocked office. Easy off I-40, .75 mile away, no noise at all. Good phone signal. Cable TV ok. Not a large KOA. Has a real homey feel. And the shower house is unbelievably gorgeous. HGTV-perfect. Check out pics on some of the other reviews. We would stay again. We camped at Sallisaw / Fort Smith West KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Coachlight RV Park, Carthage, Missouri

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

We used this for an overnight stop and it was great for that purpose. For short stays they assign you to a separate non-shaded gravel section with easy, level pull throughs and full hook ups. For longer stays they have a large really nice area of campsites that are beautifully shaded and landscaped. Friendly staff. Great Verizon signal and wi-fi. Nice area to walk dogs. Adjacent to RV dealership, which is next to the highway and blocks any noise to the campground. Totally quiet night for us. We'd stay there again for sure. It's between Carthage and Joplin, not sure how far away it would be from supermarkets or Walmart. No swimming pool and I don't recall seeing a playground. We camped at Coachlight RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Indian Point COE, Branson, Missouri

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $10.00
Overall Rating:      

Beautiful campground on the shore of Table Rock Lake. Lots of trees for great shade. Lake nearby but not visible from most campsites. Verizon signal poor. Very spacious sites in some loops. Sites near marina can be quite close together. Some sites are hopelessly difficult to achieve level. Roads could be wider. Driveways into the sites are pretty narrow with culvert and deep ditches to deal with. Another reviewer mentioned the best site numbers. Heed that advice. We were in 50 and though it is a very long pull thru it's impossible to level without backing from the paved drive onto part of the gravel/grass area of the yard. Nice and shady spot, just awful to get into. Beach is nice, marina with slips is nice. Area is gorgeous. Lake is very nice. We would camp here again, but be more site selective. We camped at Indian Point COE in a Fifth Wheel.

Red Rock Canyon State Park, Hinton, Oklahoma

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

This is a lovely state park in a mile long canyon with paved roads throughout. Campsites are either paved or have cement pad, and very level. Verizon signal spotty. Able to get a few TV stations with antenna positioned just right. Nice playground equipment for the kids, and a seasonal swimming pool that looks nice. Park is perfect for riding bicycles. Lots of shade throughout the park. There is a stream that runs next to all campsites. We stayed in a pull thru space that was perfect. Very spacious and private from next campsite. Three camping areas and many tent areas available, too. The canyon is beautiful with hiking trails and rappelling allowed. And since it's in a canyon, the trademark Oklahoma wind isn't really an issue. Small fishing pond that is quite mossy, but we caught fish. Lots of picnic pavilions for larger groups. The turn off into the park from the highway is easy to miss, and once you turn in there is a very steep road down into the canyon. It's a short twisting road, but we had absolutely no issues with our 36' fifth wheel and truck. It's a great place to camp, and if you're driving I-40 through western Oklahoma, it's only 5 miles south of the highway right in the town of Hinton. And the $20.00 fee is total, there is no car fee, just campsite fee. We camped at Red Rock Canyon State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Salina KOA, Salina, Kansas

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

Very well maintained KOA. Large shade trees throughout the park. Level sites, most are gravel but some are concrete. Full service cabins available as well as the typical camping cabins. Fishing pond, pool, playground. Good location off of I-70 and not far at all from I-135. Traffic noise wasn't a bother to us at all, but I think it could be if you had your windows open or were tent camping. This is a nice campground and the staff seems helpful and friendly. There is a Yesteryears Museum across the street. Eisenhower presidential museum is in Abilene 20 miles east. Rock City park is about 20 miles north. We camped at Salina KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Cottonwood Point COE, Marion, Kansas

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

Very large campground. Large, well spaced sites. Most sites will accommodate any length RV. New area has full hookups. We were in 101, pull thru site right on the lake, full hookups. Lake view from every site. Covered picnic tables. Campground has a lot of shade. The new area has less trees, but with time it will be very shady too. Shower house in our loop is brand new. Tile floors, private stalls, looks nice. The entire campground has been very well maintained. We are impressed. Very friendly staff. Reason for 9 instead of 10 is because after 1" of rain some of the sites are a bit muddy and could use more gravel. But really for camping it's just about perfect. Fishing looks to be good here. Beaches available as well as courtesy fishing piers. We camped at Cottonwood Point COE in a Fifth Wheel.

Deer Creek Valley RV Park, Topeka, Kansas

Date of Stay: October, 2015 - $35.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed here after finding campsite water is turned off for the season at Lake Shawnee where we intended to go. This park is surrounded by lovely trees and a creek area. Half mile from lake. Very new park and really excellent place to stay. Large well spaced sites with well manicured grounds. Paved roads and campsites. Pool looks very nice though off season so closed now. Great playground. Enormous fenced dog area. Very secure. Staff very friendly and helpful. If you leave RV windows open you'll hear highway traffic noise some. Which means it's convenient to I-70. Very secluded though. We were very impressed and highly recommend this RV park. Perfect for short or long stays in Topeka. New and meticulously maintained. We camped at Deer Creek Valley RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
