Deer Creek Valley RV Park, Topeka, Kansas

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

My perspective is that of a traveler with a 40' motorhome and toad. Wow, I rarely give a ten rating but this RV Park (not campground) is one of the best designed and maintained parks that I've ever experienced and I've been in all lower 48 states. 59 sites and every one is an angled pull-thru. All the roads are poured concrete and all sites re poured concrete. Even the grass is edged along the roads and sites. The utilities are all on a manufactured lighted outlet post. Wonderful large dog park, pool, bathhouse, office and much more. The entire park is fenced and gated. Although it is very close to I-70, traffic noise could not be heard due to forested vegetation around the facility. The only negative comments that there is no shade and more importantly, there is very rigid (and in my opinion unnecessary) speed bumps. I would recommend and stay here again. We camped at Deer Creek Valley RV Park in a Motorhome.

Elkhorn Campground, Frankfort, Kentucky

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

My perspective is that of an overnight traveler with a 40' motorhome and toad. This is a decent place to stay. My pull-thru site was a combination of gravel and turf. The campground was full and the site spacing is tight. Water and electric connections were decent. Care must be taken while traveling around the campground roads given tree limbs but can be done safely. The road into the campground is narrow and meeting another RV requires someone to pull over. The staff was friendly at check-in. Generally speaking, this was an okay stop for the night but I wouldn't consider it a destination campground unless you wanted to visit the area amenities. We camped at Elkhorn Campground in a Motorhome.

Stonewall Resort, Briar Point Campground , Roanoke, West Virginia

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $57.00
Overall Rating:

My perspective is that of a traveler with a 40' motorhome. This is a very nice campground with lots of amenities including golf course, beautiful lake with swimming, fishing and boating, resort restaurants, playgrounds, tennis courts, and more. Previous posts reflect the reviews primarily of "campers" and they are for the most part accurate and relevant, so I won't repeat all the fine attributes. However, I won't give the review a "ten" for the following reasons. 1) The majority of sites are only 30 amp with very few 50 amp services available. 2) although the sites are paved, many could be more level front to back. 3) Access with big rigs is tight but doable without tree damage if careful. 4) The entrance guard shack is very tight for 40' MH with toad. Although I called ahead and had a reservation, the attendant did not have a record and because it is single lane, I had several vehicles backed up behind me because they could not go around due to single lane access. I had to pull ahead and park off the road and hike back to the shack. It happens, but they really could easily make room by moving dividers to allow folks to pass by. 5) For a state park the cost is much higher than it should be. This is a premium rate for top locations anywhere in the country and although it's a very nice facility, it certainly doesn't rank this rate. 6) Check-in requires signature and initialing several documents including a "contract doc" which I found very cumbersome and overkill for a campground. All that said, this truly is a very nice facility and I would return here. But it really is better suited for family camping rather than for an overnight stay while traveling. We camped at Stonewall Resort, Briar Point Campground in a Motorhome.

Fossil Valley RV Park, Vernal, Utah

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $41.00
Overall Rating:

Pay attention because Its easy to miss the park entrance. I stayed 3 days while visiting the area parks and recharging from lots of travel miles. The staff is exceptionally helpful and courteous. Even asking me if I'd like a site with line-of-sight for my rooftop DISH while still having shade. Interior roads are paved and sites are gravel. Lot of mature shade trees with branches high enough that they don't interfere with the RV. FHU utilities were sufficient and well placed. Sites are a bit close but for a "Park" it is just fine. My site was a pull-thru long enough for 40' MH and my car parked perpendicular, not long enough to park in-line. As others mentioned, some road noise from main street but that generally reduces late evening. I would recommend this park and would readily stay here again. We camped at Fossil Valley RV Park in a Motorhome.

Creekside RV Resort, Punta Gorda, Florida

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $60.00
Overall Rating:

This is a relatively new park with a wonderful design. The sites are solid pavers and very long in most cases with lots of space between sites. Premium sites even have utility connections on either side so you can pull in or back in depending on the view you like or the side you want to shade. Top notch laundry, clubhouse, poll, pickle ball courts and the park has secure gated access. Close to hundreds of amenities in Punta Gorda or Port Charlotte as well as the Punta Gorda airport.

Truckee River RV Park, Truckee, California

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $51.00
Overall Rating:

I stayed one night while traveling and it was all I could find on short notice. Two basic issues: 1) My paved back-in site was very narrow with low hanging trees on both sides. I had to break off branches to get my galley slide open, and I didn't bother opening on of my lounge slides because of branches. 2) my site only had 30 amp service in 95 degree weather. The water and electric and sewer are stacked on top of each other. The paved campground loop is very tight, steep and exiting with a 40' MH is tricky. There is no place to park while hooking up toad. On the plus side you can buy gas and diesel at the store, and the WiFi worked better than most places. It appears that most people stay here for local rafting and lake Tahoe is only 30 minutes away. This place has a lot of trees which I like. However, I do not rate places well that don't trim limbs at a height that allows RVs scratch-free access. I would not stay here again especially at $51 with discount. We camped at Truckee River RV Park in a Motorhome.

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.

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.

Granite Corner RV Park, Walden, Colorado

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $43.00
Overall Rating:

As always, my perspective is as a traveler in a 40' MH towing. This is a small mom & pop (literally) backyard RV park with three (3) very long pull-thru sites with full hook ups. This is really a very nice place to stay a day or two (or more) in a rather remote part of north Colorado. Not at all difficult to locate. Beautiful mountain views in all four directions. The small town of Hayden is at over 8,100 ft elevation so be aware of altitude and exertion. Owners couldn't be nicer folks. However, be prepared to pay by cash or check because they don't accept credit cards, and because it's only three sites, I suggest calling ahead for a reservation. I would stay here again and recommend it. We camped at Granite Corner RV Park in a Motorhome.

Yampa River State Park (Headquarters Campground), Hayden, Colorado

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $24.00
Overall Rating:

As usual, my perspective is as a traveler in a 40' MH towing, not camping. The good: This is a well maintained state park with plenty of room between sites. All sites have a steel pavilion with a picnic table to provide afternoon shade and one side is closed to provide protection from the west wind. The sites are raked gravel maintained by the camp host. The Yampa River is adjacent to the campground. They have a gravel walking path around the entire park. The laundry, restrooms, and showers are very well cleaned daily and open 24/7 except for a brief period mid-day for cleaning. W/D is only 75 cents per load each. All RV sites have 50amp power but no water or sewer. Very nice visitor center as well. They do not sell firewood but there's a fair amount on the ground around the pathway and campers are permitted to collect. The not so good: There is very little shade at the RV sites. Trees are too small and too few. The sun can really bake you in hot June temps. With temps in the high 90's I needed run all 3 A/C's to maintain high 70's in MH. The gravel at the shaded portion of the sites is rather fine and somewhat deep making it a bit difficult to walk through much like beach sand. It collects easily in sandals or clogs, too. There is no green grass anywhere except at the office / laundry buildings. Everywhere else is stiff brown stubble. Route 40 is probably less than 100 yards from the campground and, although it isn't terribly busy, the road noise is annoying in this otherwise quiet location. Traffic does reduce at night but trucks can be heard a long way off even inside the coach. While there for a few days, the campground lost power for over four hours one day, and I had interruptions on at least two other days. However, the loss was not the fault of the campground. Overall, a decent place to stay but not much to see or do in the nearby area. I would stay here again as an overnight or several day stay. We camped at Yampa River State Park (Headquarters 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.

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.
