Newport News Park Campground, Newport News, Virginia

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $33.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed 3 nights on E loop. And it was quiet. The toilets & sinks were clean, but the showers had black mold on the curtains, floor, and walls. We wouldn't use them as they were disgusting. Most of the sites were empty around us, with a few people in the loop near us. Staff at the office are very friendly. There is a laundry room there very clean & reasonable priced. We had broken glass on our site that a staff person leaf blew off where the car was parked. Tons of cigarette butts left by previous camper. Wish smokers picked up their butts. We checked showers on other loops, and all were moldy, dirty, and stunk. It was very hot & humid out and even with flip flops on, we were not going to use the showers. The park offers firewood, rental boats & bikes, and has nice trails. They just need to power wash the showers. They have a cleaning crew that comes in daily, but they are only responsible for the toilets sinks and mirrors. The park is responsible for the showers. Its a shame how bad they are. We camped at Newport News Park Campground in a Tent.

Mississinewa Lake, Peru, Indiana

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $33.00
Overall Rating:      

We stopped on our way through to visit with family for a few days. Upon arrival (on a Tues), we were told they had only 1 site left out of 400 plus, for anyone to stay on for 4 nights. You have to pay up front BEFORE going in to see any sites, and when we got to that site, it was a hill. Not a small slant--but a hill. There is no way anyone can sleep on that (site 401). I went back to the office and asked for a refund. They don't give refunds. Even 20 minutes after you pay. So I told them to find something not on a hill. After arguing with them, they gave me 4 to look at. We chose the only one near a outhouse, and water spigot. After setting up (and I knew outhouses are gross), I went over and was horrified. 2 toilets and no doors, curtains--anything on it. AKA no privacy if anyone walks in. The water spigot outside also didn't work. The whole time there kids ran around screaming, trucks went by with loud music, and the background full of screaming teens and/or adults, loud music at sites, and it wasn't clean at all. The ONLY trash container for the WHOLE park is up front as you enter so you have to either drive way up front to dispose of trash, or hang onto it for when you leave. We had trash on the site we didn't stay on, and trash on the one we took. Locals like it and it is known as a "party" place on the weekends. Rates are high too. I wish we had stayed 20 minutes away at the other state park as we know that has a total differet atmosphere. Kids on scooters, tons of golf carts, and other small motorized vehicles were always driving by. People speed in here. The park is run down, and was years ago when we lived in that area. We never camped there then, and sure wish we hadn't this time neither. We definitely won't ever again. If you like loud people, screaming kids, loud vehicles, and tons of golf carts, this is the place for you. We were there during the week too, so that didn't make a difference. It got worse as the weekend was closer. We camped at Mississinewa Lake in a Tent.

Salamonie is much quieter to stay at. If you don't know what your site looks like don't pay. Argue to go see it first. If you have to use a restroom in there, try to get a site near the modern bathrooms. They weren't clean but at least there are doors on the stalls. Fees are higher on weekends. Plus a $7 residential/$9 non residential one time fee is added on with your camping fee if you don't have a pass to the park.

Lincoln Trail State Park, Marshall, Illinois

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

We stopped here for a night on our way through. One of the hosts is NOT a people person. We had already had a bad day there, and upon checking in, he sure didn't help matters. I asked for an ADA site as they were near the bathrooms, and he said they were for wheelchair people. When you talk to him and he doesn't like what you say, he just shrugs his shoulders. Not a friendly people person at all. The following morning, I did meet another host couple who we didn't know were there. Very friendly people. Sure wish we had met them when we got there as it would have made a huge difference in making our day better. Other than a host who I feel doesn't care about people, the place was clean, other staff great, and we drove down to the store to get ice. Reasonable prices at the store too. Bathrooms and showers were clean and water was nice and hot too. The park itself is clean, sites are spacious & shady, with water nearby all of them. Bathrooms are clean, along with the showers. The pull in sites are mostly back ins but have plenty of room for all size campers. We camped at Lincoln Trail State Park in a Tent.

Bennett Spring State Park, Lebanon, Missouri

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

I don't know where to start with describing this park. It is beyond beautiful, with so much to do. There is a fish hatchery there, and they release trout certain times, and the streams are spring fed, crystal clear, and a lot of people fish there. They rent cabins, have a hotel, restaurant, HUGE store, sell fishing licenses, and tons of walking paths, fish hatchery tours, and just so much more. It is beyond pretty at ALL the sites as we drove around looking at the place. For such a large place, its kept very clean. We would LOVE to spend at least a week there in the future sometime. We camped at Bennett Spring State Park in a Tent Trailer.

Foss State Park, Foss, Oklahoma

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $7.00
Overall Rating:      

We stopped for the night & stayed in the tent area. We had to have the ranger help us find the campground as there are a lot in that park. He was beyond helpful, friendly, and not only offered to help anyone--but did it willingly. You don't find many park managers that do what they say. The site was shady, on grass, and we had a nice peaceful evening there. There are buffalo at the park, which I saw when we arrived, and we didn't go to the beach area which is a mile or so away, but was told it is beautiful. They have one area of the beach for pets to swim with you, and a non-pet area. The bathrooms were clean, and showers are pay. We would definitely go there again. We camped at Foss State Park in a Tent.

Santa Rosa Lake State Park, Santa Rosa, New Mexico

Overall Rating:      

Beautiful clean park. We stayed one night passing through. Bathrooms were clean for the most part (kids went in later and trashed them out), but they were clean when we arrived. Sites were spacious, and one thing we love about NM state parks are the roofs over the picnic tables. It helps when its 103 out. We would definitely stop here again. I would have given it a 10, but they have ants all over the place. We sprayed the bottom of our tent to keep them from crawling all over it. Within seconds they were all over our dog's food dish. We would stay here again, ants and all, as its a beautiful place with the lake off in the distance from our site. We camped at Santa Rosa Lake State Park in a Tent.

Bluewater Lake State Park, Prewitt, New Mexico

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

We stopped for the night passing through. No staff around, host sign but no host--they were in another area. Sites are gravelly, and not for tents. Some sites even a tent wouldn't fit. Some blowing trash, and we finally chose a developed site (picnic table & fire ring). Pit toilet was disgusting. Beyond dirty. Water was in a different area of the park. Dog poop was all over a LOT of the sites. We chose not to go swimming, as the water had a bad odor to it and was murky. The odor was worse. Dogs were running loose in the beach/swim area if it was even that. No cell phone service for AT&T. Not sure about Verizon but was told no one's service works there. Park looked run down to me and not taken care of. The things they have going for them are the views of the dam & lake, and fishing. That's it. We won't go back. I have yet to understand why people won't clean up after their pets. We camped at Bluewater Lake State Park in a Tent.

Mayflower County Park, Blythe, California

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

We spent a month here, and the park is beautiful. The price is nice, $300 for the month, electricity included. They do not have sewer hookups, but pump you 3 times a week--and that is included in the price. The staff is wonderful, and will help you with anything you need to know. The Colorado River is right there, with birds to see, and the water goes up and down depending on what is going on at the dam farther up the road that they are working on. There were 3 things we didn't like about the park. The top of the list is the dog poop all over the place. A lot of people there do not clean up after their dogs. Dog poop was EVERYWHERE. We watched the owners take their dogs just to the outside of the park on the north side, so they wouldn't have to pick it up, but inside the park they had a lot of dog owners that stay there for the winter who never cleaned up after their pets. They weren't weekend people neither, but there for the winter. A lot of people took their dogs to empty lots, looked around to see who was watching, then walked off. We saw some owners cleaning up. It's the few that don't that ruin it for others. We just don't like that much dog poo any place we go. The other thing we didn't like was the water. We've been in places where its bad, but this place had the worst. We have water streaks in our toilet bowl now we are trying to remove, but the water is loaded with sediment. They put a new well in about a year ago we were told. Don't stay without a filter, and have an extra one on hand. Ours lasted 10 days. It was a cheapy tho. We ended up buying a whole house filter and that was filthy when we left. Fuel is cheaper in AZ. Blythe only has 2 grocery stores. Albertsons, and Smart N Final. Both cost a lot, but Smart N Final is the cheaper one. Laundromats in Blythe are dirty. They are in Quartsite too so you have to just bite the bullet when doing laundry. You won't find anything cheaper to stay at than here in that area. We camped at Mayflower County Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Most of the sites are back in but very spacious. Plenty of room to park if you choose the right spot. It's shaded in there, and well worth going to. Like I said--my only two gripes were too much dog poop as its not enforced, and the water is bad. I wish when people checked into ANY park, that 1 or 2 dog bags were handed to owners and told "Here's to start you out--if you need more come back"--that's a subtle way of saying clean up after your dog. Some parks do that to make dog owners think.

Columbus RV Park, Columbus, New Mexico

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

This park has garbage all over it, feral cats--I counted 50 between 3 campers who obviously fed them. Dried out grass is knee deep. Half the campers have trash, broken down vehicles near them, with other stuff piled or discarded in and around their campers. Very very dirty run down place. 2 RVs at the back are the worst, with one of them having all kinds of stuff on three roof, including bedding. We drove through, and left asap. This place shouldn't even be allowed to stay open. Manager obviously just wants occupancy in here any way she/he can. We camped at Columbus RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

81 Palms Senior RV Resort (55+ Park), Deming, New Mexico

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

We stopped for a couple nights & saw mostly RV's, that live here year round. We parked near an end site, as dogs aren't allowed to walk in the park. You are asked to carry them to the dog area. The dog area consists of a plowed dirt area in the sand away from the park. Rules are posted all over the place where NOT to take your dog, what not to do in different areas. There is no gate as stated in a different review, but they do have an alarm from 10pm-6am. So they request you to not come and go during those hours unless its an emergency. The whole property is also fenced in with chain link, with barb wire at the top. The entrance has the alarm that will go off during those hours I posted. If you have a guest, they CANNOT use any facilities at all in the park. None. It's even posted on the bathrooms that they are for PAYING guests only. If you have a guest overnight, they have to be a senior, which costs an additional $6. The pool was nice, clean, but seemed cooler after midafternoon when they shut off the pumps. Wifi is free, but super slow, only one device can be hooked up, or it costs extra. Checkout is 11am, with the cost of $1 an hour after that. Tons of goatherds (nasty burrs) that came from no wheres, as we didn't walk off the site. Cash or check only is accepted. It is noisy from the trains that go through every 30-45 minutes day and night. We were woken up 4 am by the horns blowing. Good for a night or two stay, but wouldn't want to stay long term. Trees are small so shade doesn't happen. Water pressure was very low. Electric was good. Very clean place but too rule happy. We camped at 81 Palms Senior RV Resort (55+ Park) in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed here a little over 2 weeks. I put $20 for nightly because all they ask is a donation for the electric. Monthly rates are $150. I have never seen such a clean, well taken care of park as here! Jim (the host) will do anything to make you feel at home, and Dave (owner) is same way. Wigi worked great, water pressure was good, and their showers will make you want to use them as they are spacious, and have BIG sun shower heads in them. This is close to town, yet out of the crowded areas. We would definitely return. We camped at Stagecoach RV Ranch in a Fifth Wheel.

A Deming Roadrunner RV Park, Deming, New Mexico

Date of Stay: March, 2016 - $13.00
Overall Rating:      

The managers are beyond nice, but the park is run down, dirty, and a lot of dog feces everywhere. The managers live in the back, and it looks like Sanford & Son's yard--pure junk. They themselves let their dog run loose, and don't clean up after them, so why should others? There are a lot of junky long term campers in here, with fences, and some sites have 4 RVs on them. The hot tub is not hot, bleach-not chlorine-was used in it. Lights don't work in the room it is in. The "clubhouse" has run down broken exercise equipment. Not even sure if they work. It's supposed to be a 4 person, but very small. Laundry is reasonably priced, but it reeks of smoke from everyone smoking right outside that door and the office. The showers are run down, some kind of carpet on the floors of the showers--germ collectors bigtime. Passport America rates are $13 a night. If staying for a night or two it is cheap, but not long term unless you like run down conditions. Some sites have picnic tables that are falling apart. Friendliness beyond anything and cheap overnight is what they have going for them. Much cleaner parks elsewhere, but cost more. Needs to be cleaned up at this park. It would be nice if it were. We camped at A Deming Roadrunner RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is our 2nd time staying here, & seems like alot was cleaned up outside. Some of the same campers were there, I think 1 or 2 were gone from the past, but overall seemed a whole lot cleaner. The pool & hot tub were relaxing, clean, and temps just right. Staff is friendly, & gift store inside office is interesting, with neat things. There weren't any cat smells as before so possibly cats are gone? Pizza Hut delivers, and we still avoided the restaurant as we weren't impressed from the last time there. I peeked in and it hasn't changed. They do make excellent bread though. This is a good place to stop for a day or two while passing through. We would stay here again.

Imperial Dam BLM LTVA, Yuma, Arizona

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

This LTVA has a dump station, potable water, and rest rooms up near the entrance. It is $40 for 14 days, or $180 for 6 months. This is a harsh area to stay in, & if you aren't prepared it can do you in. Most people have solar panels, generators, etc. The wind is non stop, daily around 15 mph, and sometimes worse. Squaw lake is nearby where you can take a 7 minute shower for $1. Burros roam freely through there that are left over from the mining days. It is a really nice place to stay, but if you don't have solar panels, and other stuff, it will be rough on you if staying long term. A Christian center a couple miles down the road offer church services, a mail room, 2nd hand store, propane (very expensive), there's a solar store there, and other things too. They aren't part of Imperial Dam, and do offer many more things than mentioned. My only gripe is people don't clean up after their pets because they are out in the desert. Some people camping there look like junk yards, but for the most part, everyone keeps their space clean. Imperial Dam also has a boat landing, day use area, swimming area, which Squaw Lake also does. We camped at Imperial Dam BLM LTVA in a Fifth Wheel.

There are good & bad things about this park. The bad is they have fees they don't tell you about until you arrive. Electricity is through the electric company, & if you have never had power in AZ,don't have it elsewhere, you will have to pay $250 deposit to hook up the first time. After that, its $25 if you return the following year. Name tags are mandatory to buy. They charge a "utility" fee for water/sewer/cable. $50 month, & if staying 5 months, $264 up front. The cable doesn't work in alot of sites.You can't pay it monthly. Very limited on where you walk your dogs.This place is monthly only. No daily or weekly rates. It caters to park model owners. T It's VERY dusty in there & needs new gravel Water gets cut off alot from lines breaking. Internet is through Aire Beam, & doesn't work half the time. Verizon doesn't work well within the park.Good points? Tons of activities. Beautiful heated pool, & hot tub. The place is kept clean. Water arobics is via a tape you listen to, that is the same over & over. They do have a mini golf that is fun, & exercise room, with broken equipment.
