Calistoga RV and Campground, Calistoga, California

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

I stayed here for 3 days while visiting friends so I spent little time at the park. That said, it's convenient for visiting the many interests in the valley. My premium gravel pull-thru site was very narrow, no table a bit of shade. I had to back out of my pull-thru site with my 40' MH because of overhanging branches. The utilities were adequate and reliable. This is a municipal owned park that was fine for my purpose but I would not use it as a destination. There were at least two neighbors that didn't believe in leash rules for their dogs. A true pet peeve of mine. This park could use some TLC but I will say that it served my purpose and I felt secure there since it was in a nice small town and had a fence around the park. We camped at Calistoga RV and Campground in a Motorhome.

Beach RV Park, Benton City, Washington

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $37.00
Overall Rating:

Review based as an overnight guest. The RV Park is well laid out with angled paved sites and roadways. The reception staff was friendly and helpful. The park has a predominent amount of 5th wheels and travel trailers which appear to be seasonal or permanent. Quit bit of shade however many of the trees are not manicured enough to prevent the limbs from contacting the top or sides of the motorhome. My pull through site had trees on either side of the egress end so I had to back out of my pull through to prevent damage from the trees. The site pre paved and the grass is very well manicured. The sites are rather close together but the majority of the sites had well maintained RV's and property. This is a well maintained park with a nice layout. Trees are nice for shade but they're too close for big rigs to pull through. No problem with tress on their roadways. I would stay here again. We camped at Beach RV Park in a Motorhome.

Note: when approaching the park from the south, be aware that there is two entrances. The first entrance is very difficult to get to the office with a 40 foot motorhome and a toad. The SECOND entrance is much larger with easy access and only about 50 yards farther.

Polk County Fairgrounds, Rickreall, Oregon

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

I echo the previous review in all aspects. This place is an excellent "no frills" overnight or base camp place, assuming there are no large fair events going on, which detail is posted on their site. Actually, the serenity of being in a very large gravel lot with only four other RVs, and virtually no road noise was welcomed and refreshing. No shade and not a campground but a very good option for an overnight stay. Dump station open for one use only. We camped at Polk County Fairgrounds in a Motorhome.

Wolf Lodge Campground, Coeur d'Alene, Idaho

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $42.00
Overall Rating:

My overall assessment of the park is that the sites are very tight and most are on grass. For me, this is a stop for one night. I would go elsewhere if I had the opportunity for several reasons: 1) the entrance is ridiculously narrow. I consider myself to be fairly experienced and capable maneuvering my 40' MH with a toad. However, I barely cleared by inches with both the coach and the car. Had I not been perfectly aligned (and warned by other comments on this site), I would have been in a jam and could not back up without disconnecting. Tip: Be prepared to swing as wide as possible to make the entrance. Terrible entrance...period. 2) The park has some pull throughs with gravel but I had to settle for a turf with Water & Electric only. My neighbors awning was probably about 6" from my slide. 3) The highway noise is rather loud but it was warm enough to use A/C's to limit the noise. I stayed here out of necessity and would never reserve to camp here for any length of time. All that said, the best thing about the park was the friendly staff. We camped at Wolf Lodge Campground in a Motorhome.

Big Sioux Recreation Area, Brandon, South Dakota

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $27.00
Overall Rating:

I stay as an overnight stop. This State campground is an excellent place for camping or stop over stay. Not far from I-90 and good big rig access. The sites are all back-ins but space nicely and angled for easy backing. Paved campground road with gravel site. Check-in staff was very helpful and friendly. Lots of shade and fairly level sites. This is a smaller campground in terms of number of sites, but well worth the visit. I'm guessing it fills up on weekends but there was several site available to me on a Thursday night. Mostly travel trailers but a few motorhomes as well. Sites appear to be all long enough for the longest motorhome but no pull thru's. I would recommend this as a nice overnight reasonably close to I-90. We camped at Big Sioux Recreation Area in a Motorhome.

Hunt's Cedar River Campground, Tipton, Iowa

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

I stayed just "for the night" while traveling. Didn't intend to "camp". I needed 50amp since the temp was in the high 90's and very humid and they had one site remaining with 50amp. The pull thru's were turf and very close but long enough not to disconnect the toad. Enough mature trees to provide nice shade. Full hookups worked well. You must travel about 1/2 mile on a dusty and somewhat rough dirt road to the entrance. No one staffed the store but had phone numbers listed for guidance. Staff showed up and were very helpful and friendly. Many permanent / seasonal RV's in the prkThe downside is that the pull thru's were less than 100 yards from I-80 at a bridge. The truck traffic noise was VERY loud. Fortunately, the A/C's helped drown out the noise but not as much as I would have liked. Bottom line is that I would stay again as a stop over if I had no better options, which was the case. We camped at Hunt's Cedar River Campground in a Motorhome.

Jacksonville North / St. Marys KOA, Kingsland, Georgia

Date of Stay: March, 2018 - $52.00
Overall Rating:

Stayed here for an overnight while traveling north. Typical KOA price. While this is adequate for an overnight, the sites are small, gravel, grass but level. The campground utilities condition is some of the worst I've seen. Conduits separated from electrical boxes with exposed wiring at my site and neighbors as well. Water hydrant connection tight against 50amp box with hose connection inches above the box! Cable was completely non-visible at my site. Sewer connection was okay. Roads are in poor potholed condition. On the plus side, they had food service available that was pretty good and convenient. The staff were friendly and helpful. I would stay here again only if I didn't have better options. We camped at Jacksonville North / St. Marys KOA in a Motorhome.

Interstate RV Park, Davenport, Iowa

Date of Stay: April, 2017 - $42.00
Overall Rating:

The gravel entrance to the park is very rough in terms of potholes and uneven surface. I use RV "Parks" as advertised which is an overnight stay right by the interstate. This place fit the bill, however the price is out of line as far as I'm concerned. No cable, shared water with neighboring site, and had about 5 feet between our slide and the neighbors. I would expect to pay about $25-$30 per night for an RV "Park" (not campground) such as this. I would only us this business again if I had no other choices. We camped at Interstate RV Park in a Motorhome.

Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park Camp-Resorts Yogi at Shangri-La, Milton, Pennsylvania

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $26.00
Overall Rating:

First, the good stuff -If you want a campground geared towards young families then this Yogi Bear place is for you. They've got lots of scheduled activities for kids including daily hay rides; very nice pool; playground and more. All the physical amenities in this campground such as the sites, roads, buildings are in terrific condition. The entire campground was very well maintained by a large number of work-camper staff. Even the fire pits are moved and all ashes cleaned immediately after the site is vacated. Many of the sites are shaded by mature trees.

Now the not-so-good stuff - Thee is an huge amount of permanent sites consuming the better locations. Very few pull-thru sites for larger rigs and even less with 50amp. Our 50amp site was back-in with no shade and just gravel. OVERHEAD WIRES were everywhere and low enough to actually drag on top of some tall RV's. We had to have a spotter while maneuvering to our site with our motorhome. We cleared some wires by only inches. One access road was no navigable due to low wires. They really should consider trenching the electrical utilities. Last, we stayed Tuesday thru Thursday. The campground is so well booked on weekends that they try to do all their maintenance during the week. Wednesday was mowing day with noisy mowers until late afternoon. Then, a skid loader was spreading stones and leveling gravel on nearby sites until after 6:00pm making sitting outdoors very annoying. I finally went over and asked the skid loader person what time he intended to quit for the day. He planned on working later but was reasonable enough to stop 15 minutes later. We understand the need to work during the week when sites are available, but we also expect a quiet time for weekday campers, too. The 1/2 mile or so paved access road to the campground is very narrow and full of potholes. We were SO glad not to meet another RV on this road. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park Camp-Resorts Yogi at Shangri-La in a Motorhome.

Whispering Winds Campground, Sheffield, Pennsylvania

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

Maneuvering the park roads can be a challenge for larger motorhomes. Our 40ft got in and out but had to manuever a sharp dropping turn inside the park that required a back up. The sharp turn dropped off at a sharp angle to a lower roadway level. The site was round river pebble and grass. Had to use large pads under levelers in the rear due to heavy coach and soft pad.

Office staff was pleasant and helpful. They take Passport but we forgot to check until after the fact. We stayed 3 nights to visit regional attractions. Full hook-ups were fine. Although charged a couple bucks extra for 50 amp and again for cable TV. I would stay here again as a place to stay... but not a place to be. We camped at Whispering Winds Campground in a Motorhome.

Sampson State Park, Romulus, New York

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

The driveway into the park was a long and very rough paved road. Our first impression with the park was checking in at the office late afternoon on a Monday where the clerk was a bit rude. Although we were the only people in the office, she ignored us at the counter until we spoke up. She was very cold and left us with a poor first impression of the park service.

The park is designed nicely with the different loops but the sites appear to be best suited for smaller travel trailers, pop-ups, etc., instead of motorhomes. I say this because most of the sites we saw were not level. In fact, many sites were so sloped that some travel trailers had their tongue on the ground in front and a the rear was a couple feet off the ground. The gravel sites had very little gravel and ours had more dirt than grass at the picnic table. We chose loop 5 to be near the water but frankly, the trees and brush are so thick by the water that there is very few spots to view the water from the loop. We rode bikes in the other 4 loops and they seemed to be a bit more flat, but still many sites were very sloped. Seems that the park was built / designed decades ago for smaller RV's and more geared for single /double axle RV's instead of motorhomes that level on four corners. My impression is that the park is underfunded given the obvious lack of routine maintenance on sites and roadways.

The good - lots of shade at the sites; nice layout of the loops with central bathhouse; nice marina, picnic areas, lake; good spacing between sites; fair rate; good location for touring the regions wine trails.
The "not s0 good" - unlevel sites with small gravel pads; very rough roadways; shared electrical posts that likely require extension cords for many sites; staff mowing large fields regularly but our loop had very long grass; concession store only open Fri/Sat/Sun; check-in staff gave us a poor first impression. This is likely a very good family camping spot for smaller RV's. We camped at Sampson State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Bring an extension cord for electrical connection. Don't trust all locals selling firewood. Wood we purchased near the park was "green" and would not burn. Camp store was closed Mon - Thurs so we couldn't buy wood at the campground. Local wine trails were plentiful and friendly.
Bottom line - we would probably look for a better camping opportunity in the region.

Twin Grove RV Resort & Cottages, Pine Grove, Pennsylvania

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

This campground is geared towards family camping with lots of kid activities. Generally speaking, it's a decent park with decent amenities. However, I'm not impressed with much of their upkeep. For example, we were there a year ago and same things needing attention back then were still needing attention. i.e., the high window (for motorhomes) main gate touchpad was still broken; the street light by our site was still broken; their staff golf carts were junkers with one broke down by our site. The sewer connection is inside a square concrete block and recessed too low for our hose elbow to reach to pipe. Roads are rough and dusty gravel with some really large stones (3") in the mix. Many sites on the east side (pull thrus) could be more level. I saw quite a few motorhomes with their front wheels well off the ground. Also, there is no shade on the east side. West side has some shaded sites but probably more congested and smaller back-in sites.
All things considered the park is not too bad but I would be more impressed if they reinvested in their infrastructure and equipment.
Good things - decent restaurant; ice cream parlor; two pools; State Park with hike/bike trails across the street; decent camp store; fair rate; good check-in process. We camped at Twin Grove RV Resort & Cottages in a Motorhome.
