Sioux Falls KOA, Sioux Falls, South Dakota

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $50.00
Overall Rating:

Weekend price is $53 with discount. This will be our new regular stop in Sioux Falls now that the alternative has priced itself into the ridiculous. All spaces are pull-throughs - easy to get in and out. Ours was plenty long, level and decently wide. All the usual KOA amenities, though scaled down since this is a KOA Journey, oriented toward overnighters. The only thing I would complain about was the Interstate noise, though that is a common problem. We were in the row closest to the Interstate, and the noise was bearable with windows closed (it was very hot when we were there). We will stay there again when next we are in Sioux Falls. Verizon cell and internet works there, didn't try the Wifi. We camped at Sioux Falls KOA in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

When you check in, they give you a paper called "exit strategy" with directions for leaving the park. Use it. It's not difficult, but if you go straight down Robur to the left when leaving, you can't turn left on Cliff to get into town or to I90. The way they tell you to go, there is a traffic light on Cliff, and it is easy to turn left.

Missouri Valley City Park, Missouri Valley, Iowa

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $15.00
Overall Rating:

Next to the busiest railroad tracks I have ever tried to sleep near, and many of them do blow their horns. Some sites have 50 amp, some only 30. Some are on grass, others you park along the fence, with hookups just on the other side. You can get water at most of them if your neighbor is willing to share (put a Y on the hydrant). If you need to be in the area, it's a convenient place to park, just bring your earplugs. Also a good value at $15 with hookups (self-pay near the big information sign in the park). Verizon cell and internet worked. We camped at Missouri Valley City Park in a Motorhome.

Sharp RV Park, Saint Joseph, Missouri

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

Overnighters are packed in like sardines on a gravel lot on top of a hill. Long-term residents get all the best sites. We had a long pull-through but very close to our neighbors. Room for slides but not to set out chairs and grill. A couple of "pull-throughs" were along the side of the road. It was fairly quiet at night, and the owner was fine. Verizon cell and internet worked and we could use our satellite dish, since there was no shade. OK for a short stay. We camped at Sharp RV Park in a Motorhome.

Grand Country Lakeside RV Park , Afton, Oklahoma

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

This place is all about peace and quiet, and it really is right on the lakeshore. We enjoyed sitting in the shade of a tree, looking at the lake and listening to the many birds singing. The park is older and kind of rustic, but it has what you need. We had 50 amp full hookups and a space long enough for our 40-foot MH. Owners are super people and know the area well. Any of the several resort towns in the area are a short drive away, but you feel really secluded in the park. Verizon cell and internet worked. If we are back in the area, we will definitely stay here. We camped at Grand Country Lakeside RV Park in a Motorhome.

Malden Lake Campground COE, Texarkana, Texas

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $13.00
Overall Rating:

This campground is a 10 for natural beauty, peace and quiet, good campsites and the lake. If you are looking for fancy facilities, crowds, or TV then look elsewhere. The whole CG is wooded and shady, with a view of the lake through the trees from most sites. Sites are spacious, with asphalt parking, water and electricity, picnic tables, grills and fire rings. Some have 50 amp electric but many have only 30. They appear to mostly be longer than listed on the reservation site. Ours was listed at 55 feet but was much longer. We could easily have parked another vehicle or boat trailer in addition to the 40-foot MH and toad. There was also ample extra parking scattered throughout the CG, and a boat ramp at the end of the CG road. Not many spaces here, but it was nearly empty midweek. I suspect it gets full weekends, so make a reservation on recreation.gov. The gate attendant was friendly and full of useful information. Did not use the bathrooms or showers, but I looked in the men's and it was typical COE, good facilities and clean as it could be. You probably won't get any TV there, but Verizon cell and internet service worked. Also a great value, especially with a park pass. We camped at Malden Lake Campground COE in a Motorhome.

Rainbow's End - Escapees Rainbow Park, Livingston, Texas

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $22.00
Overall Rating:

Really good value for members, and not bad even for non-members. The overnight section of the park is like many decent older parks. There are a lot of mature trees, so lots of shade. We were under a tree, so satellite didn't work, and no cable or OTA stations, but that was OK with us. People were friendly and helpful, typical Escapees. In the full-time residents section of the park is the Escapees national headquarters, handy for members or those who want to join. There are some activities going on pretty much all year, and generally everyone is invited. Verizon cell and internet worked. No Wifi for short-termers. We camped at Rainbow's End - Escapees Rainbow Park in a Motorhome.

I used the SmartWeigh service to weigh my motorhome. They use individual wheel scales so you can figure the right inflation pressure for every tire, as well as if you are within weight specs for your axles and tires. Lake Livingston is a short drive away for boating and fishing.

Top of the Hill RV Resort, Boerne, Texas

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $38.00
Overall Rating:

I really like this park. I wouldn't call it a "resort", just a darn nice RV park. The atmosphere is friendly and laid back, and the park looks good. There are good views all around. Most of the park is long-term, but nothing junky. The transient sites are in the best section of the park, on top of the hill, where the pool and clubhouse are located. Sites vary quite a bit in length and width, so be sure to ask for what you need. Our pull-through was so long that I could have parked 2 cars in addition to the 40-foot MH. They all looked to be level and flat. Hookups worked fine, as did Verizon cell and internet. There are medium-size trees on most sites. We had some shade at one end and could still use satellite. There are some steep hills in the park, but nothing that was a problem. My only complaint about the park is the traffic noise from I-10, which is a very busy road. If I come back to this area, I will stay here again. We camped at Top of the Hill RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Boerne is a nice town. There is a great paved walking path that runs beside Cibolo Creek. For groceries there is a huge HEB store in town. We enjoyed The Dodging Duck restaurant on River Road, also the Drink Texas Biergarten, which had live entertainment all afternoon and evening Saturday. For a special occasion, if money is no object, try the Creek restaurant, very pricey but very good.

The Vineyard at Fredericksburg RV Park (formerly Quiet Creek RV Resort, Fredericksburg, Texas

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

This is a fairly new park so there is good news and bad news. Everything works and the sites are plenty long to park anything. Very easy in and out. Site spacing is wide enough for slides and awnings. Grass is getting fairly well established but not like a mature park. There is no shade except maybe on the West of one side where there is a row of long-termers. The park is on a gentle slope and they could have done a better job of leveling the sites. Ours was off but within the capability of the jacks. The gravel parking areas are not well compacted by use yet so jacks will sink in if it rains. I put boards under mine and the boards pushed a good inch into the ground after a hard rain. The puddle in the grass outside the door took a couple of days to dry up. Park is outside of town on a busy highway with lots of traffic during the day but not too bad at night. Strong Verizon signal. We camped at The Vineyard at Fredericksburg RV Park (formerly Quiet Creek RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Fort Stockton RV Park, Fort Stockton, Texas

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $32.00
Overall Rating:

Probably as good as it gets in Ft. Stockton area. I was met in the drive and led to my site, told to check in at the office when I was ready. Friendly folks and lots of smiles. Our pull-through was long enough we didn't have to unhook the toad from our 40-ft MH. Site spacing is good. There are small trees on many sites, big enough to give a little shade but not too big to get in the way. It is easy in and out. Verizon cell and internet worked. We camped at Fort Stockton RV Park in a Motorhome.

Las Cruces KOA, Las Cruces, New Mexico

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

Not a bad park, except for one thing. Our "premium" pull-through was very narrow. With slides out we were very close to the neighbors, and there was no room to sit outside. The space was long enough for our 40-foot MH and toad without unhooking. OK for an overnight stay, but you wouldn't want to be in it longer. Other than that, the park looked good. Some other sites looked wider but maybe not as long. We camped at Las Cruces KOA in a Motorhome.

De Anza RV Resort, Amado, Arizona

Date of Stay: April, 2018 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

Price shown reflects the weekly rate for a back-in site. Generally a very nice park with good facilities. There is a big clubhouse with an onsite restaurant open on weekends. We didn't eat there but heard only good things about it. The whole place looked clean and well kept. We had a back-in site that was easy to get into and out. It had some shade at the back and a good view out front. My complaint about it is the hookups. The water hookup is on the wrong side - better have a long hose. The sewer hookup was in the right place, but in a hole too deep to be able to properly connect a standard 90-degree fitting. It looked like the pull-through sites were better arranged. They are larger than the back-ins but have no shade. We had good Verizon cell and internet service there. Despite the complaints, It is overall a good park and I would go back again. We camped at De Anza RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Ajo Heights RV Park, Ajo, Arizona

Date of Stay: April, 2018 - $32.00
Overall Rating:

Nice little park that made a good base camp for visiting Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument. Everything looked immaculately cared for. Sites were typical Arizona gravel, but they had plantings along the back, including some trees for a little shade. Very easy to get in and out of sites due to the wide roads. There is also a cactus garden in a low area of the park. Owner was very nice at checkin. If there is nobody in the booth when you come in, there is a doorbell button next to the door that will call them from the house. Hookups were fine, and we had good Verizon cell and internet service.

Wonderland RV Park, Torrey, Utah

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

We have stayed at another park in Torrey before, but this proved to be a very good alternative. It's very nice looking, and we had some shade and grass. Staff was helpful and friendly. The pull-throughs are pretty close together, so you don't have much of a yard. No problem getting slides and awnings out, though. We were there 6 nights, and the park was full every night, as were others in town. Don't come to south Utah in the fall without a reservation! Verizon cell service in Torrey is iffy, and internet nonexistent. The park Wifi was usable most of the time, much better than typical RV park Wifi. It did have bad moments and is certainly not designed for streaming video. We camped at Wonderland RV Park in a Motorhome.

J & H RV Park (55 + Park), Flagstaff, Arizona

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $50.00
Overall Rating:

This is always a good place to stay in Flagstaff. It looks great, has lots of big trees for shade, and is always clean and neat. It's quiet at night despite being on a busy road. The owners are good people, too. I do agree with another reviewer that it is getting rather pricey, though they filled the park at that price when we were there. No cable, and you probably won't get satellite with all the trees, but there are plenty of off-air channels available. Verizon cell and internet worked.

Blue Mountain RV Park, Blanding, Utah

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $36.00
Overall Rating:

We have stayed here before, and it is still good as ever. Very clean, nice wide, smooth gravel roads, good people. The park is on a gentle hillside, but the sites are pretty level. Most of the pull-troughs are "buddy sites" where 2 sites next to each other face opposite directions, with doors facing each other. They are not real wide, but there is room for slides without a problem. Verizon cell and internet worked here. We camped at Blue Mountain RV Park in a Motorhome.
