Gulf Waters RV Resort, Port Aransas, Texas

Date of Stay: December, 2017 - $64.00
Overall Rating:      

Great "ownership" park that rents out sites just a stone's throw from the beach and Gulf of Mexico in Port Aransas, TX. There are a couple hundreds RV sites, many of them developed nicely with patios and kitchens. There are 3 ponds with RV sites spread around the pond and palm trees. You pull in and your windshield faces the pond. Our site is close to the wide, safe, boardwalk that takes you over the barrier dunes to the beach. You can rent a golf cart in town, store it in your RV site and even drive it on the boardwalk to the beach if you wish. Everything is clean and well groomed. and worth the $64 a night for our 6-night stay. There is a weekly and monthly rate as well if you're staying longer. Many of the sites are owned by "snowbirds" and full all winter, but available for rent during the shoulder seasons and the Summer. We highly recommend this place. PS. We were here 12 yers ago or so, and left a not so good review then, but everything amiss then has been put right now. We camped at Gulf Waters RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Anchor Down RV Resort, Dandridge, Tennessee

Date of Stay: October, 2016 - $68.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed here last year and LOVED it. This year not so much. The issue was the CROWDED conditions. It was a weekend, in the fall, with nice weather and it was jammed packed with RVs, pickup trucks, golf carts, dogs, kids and partying.

We didn't really notice how close the sites were together the last time, but with the crowd this time you couldn't help be be tripping over your neighbors constantly.

The facilities are nice. The sites with fireplaces are great. The bathrooms are very nice but too few when it's full like this.

They still make you crawl under your RV to put pads under your levelers and if you don't have them they'll lend you some and make sure you use them. I sure don't see this at other RV parks.

They built a new dog park and that's great. However, they need to put a double-gated entrance-way into the park. Without it, you have to make sure to grab your dog and hang on anytime anyone comes into the dog park - or out the single door they go.

We'd come back again - but not on a weekend or anytime it would be full up. We camped at Anchor Down RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Ameristar Vicksburg RV Park, Vicksburg, Mississippi

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

Stopped in here for the night. Ugh. Good luck finding a site anywhere near level. And the sites are too close together, too narrow and just sub-standard. The only bathrooms are in the office (closed 5pm to 9 am). We've stayed in other casino campgrounds and found them to be great - but not this one.

For some reason they put the sewer connection at the far back side of the site. It takes 30' of sewer hose to reach it.

We had to move 4 times during set up to try to find just one site that would level enough with hydraulic levelers so out slide would operate. The nearby big box store might be a better option than this place. We camped at Ameristar Vicksburg RV Park in a Motorhome.

Fort Parker State Park, Mexia, Texas

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

We stopped into this great State Park a few days ago on a trip home and found it to be fantastic.

We got a pull through site on the lake that was perfect. We stopped on a week day so there were only 2 other campers there that night. It was beautiful and quiet and a real joy to be there. LIke most Texas State Parks (but not all) they were water & electric sites and none have sewer hookups. There is a nice dump station.

Others have mentioned that you have to unhook your Toad before turning around in the cul de sac at the end of the road - and this is completely true. Like so many others it looked like we could make it but nope.

Now, if you came here on a weekend I imagine this park would be super crowded and a completely different experience. But on a weekday in the Fall it was great.

Nice camp host, very nice and clean bathrooms and showers were an nice addition as well. Again, on a busy weekend they are probably way too small.

We highly recommend this place if you are anywhere near Waco, TX and looking for a good place to stay. We camped at Fort Parker State Park in a Motorhome.

There are lots of trails in the park. Boat rentals and a fishing pier, too. And, a cemetery from the mid-1800's. The town has a reconstructed Fort Parker to visit as well. Oh, and a Confederate Soldier Reunion Park as well.

Claytor Lake State Park, Dublin, Virginia

Date of Stay: October, 2016 - $35.00
Overall Rating:      

Really nice State Park in Southwestern Virginia. Even with a reservation you choose your own site and all of them - on the Water/Elec "D" loop anyway - are very spacious, level, well kept and private. There are a number of nice back in sites and plenty of huge pull-throughs.

We were not here 5 mins before the camphost came over and welcomed us.

Lots of trees, but our rooftop SAT still worked and there is both Verizon and ATT cell/broadband service. No wifi anywhere, however.

The bathrooms are old, but pleasant places that are spotless and kind of "summer campy" in look.

We stayed only for the night so we don't know what the lake or the rest of the park looks like. But this park just a couple of miles off of I-81 is a gem. We camped at Claytor Lake State Park in a Motorhome.

Cherry Hill Park, College Park, Maryland

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $68.00
Overall Rating:      

We spent another week at Cherry Hill this year and find it a very good option for the Washington DC area. Probably the best you'll find and the closest to town.

Access to the Metro system is great and many major highways ring the park making it easy to get around.

The sites are fairly close together but are nicely laid out. The bathhouses are fine and the new bath, shower laundry facility is very nice.

The dog parks here are sub-standard. They're muddy, unkept, and badly gated. The main dog park had a sign "sorry about the hole in the fence we hope to fix it soon." I imagine they did, but not the week we were there.

We'll no doubt be back because Cherry Hill knows how to make a really large RV Park work and work well. We camped at Cherry Hill Park in a Motorhome.

Lots of convenient shopping nearby. Some fun bars and restaurants in the main part of College Park near the University of Maryland. Side trips to Bethesda, Annapolis and Mount Vernon were really worth the trip. Oh, and the Cherry Hill office will sell you a Senior Citizen SmarTrip Metro Card for $2. When you use it you're charged a discounted fare - It seemed to be about 40% less when we used it. Works on Metro Trains and Buses, too.

Laurel Hill State Park, Somerset, Pennsylvania

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

We spent 3-nights here at the end of Sept, 2016. It's a large state park that's very forested and pretty. We had reserved a lovely Full-Hookup site at the top of the hill bordering a huge grassy field. But try as we might we could not get level - front to back or side to side. Others that arrived at the same time had similar issues so we all worked together to find other available camp sites to get level.

When we arrived on a Sunday all the park offices and check-in shack were closed.

The bathrooms here are older cinder block buildings that had been through some rough rains recently with lots of dirt and water deposited inside.

So, to us this State Park is a mixed bag. It is very pretty and in a nice part of Pennsylvania and seems to be a very popular park for people living nearby. Our experience wasn't that pleasant.

As a plus, the Flight 93 memorial is only about 30-mins away and is a must see. We camped at Laurel Hill State Park in a Motorhome.

Please be aware, the park has two entrances - one for the park HQ with a long hilly narrow road through the park that eventually arrives at the campground. And another entrance 4-miles down the highway. So, don't let your GPS send you in the main entrance it's not big rig friendly.

Streetsboro / Cleveland SE KOA, Streetsboro, Ohio

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

We spent a week here visiting family in Akron. This appeared to be the nicest campground in the area and was 28 miles from where we were visiting. But the convenient access to the Ohio Turnpike about 2 miles away made the trips back and forth very easy. And the $1 toll each way was affordable too.

The sites were not kept up nicely. Gravel sites were overgrown with grass and gravel roads with ruts and pot holes. Bath houses were typical - sub-standard - for KOA. I'm not sure why they think those combined bath's and showers are so adequate that they use them at their parks all over the country. They're damp, dank and lack basic ventilation. On a hot or cold day they're really uncomfortable.

Come on KOA update and upgrade your campgrounds!! We camped at Streetsboro / Cleveland SE KOA in a Motorhome.

Streetsboro is 3 miles from Hudson, Ohio. It's a lovely old town that's one of the nicer and more expensive suburbs around this part of Ohio. Great shops, terrific Farmers Market on Saturdays. Neat town square. Very good restaurants and bars, too. And, check out the local Heinen's Fine Foods grocery store. Wow, it's fantastic. If you're into looking at great homes drive around and ooh and ahh at the lovely neighborhoods, too.

Gettysburg / Battlefield KOA, Gettysburg, Pennsylvania

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

We stayed here on a very rainy night. The campground is completely tree covered. Probably a relief in the summer, but dark and dank on a cold rainy night.

The bath houses were typical KOA - an out-building with a combined bath and shower room. All in all acceptable but not special or nice in the least.

Very handy to the Gettysburg Battlefield and convenient for our overnight trip here. We camped at Gettysburg / Battlefield KOA in a Motorhome.

White River Campground, Cicero, Indiana

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

This is a highly rated campground run by the local county. It's in a lovely tree lined area near the river. We were really looking forward to staying here. BUT, on a nice early fall weekend it's a disappointment. There are two issues: 1) It's JAMMED with people, cars, dogs running loose, 3 year olds on bikes and large family gatherings spread out all over every available blade of grass. That's OK, but when the sites are really tight it's uncomfortable. Next to our site is what appears to be a family reunion. They've rented 7 or 8 sites and have set up a large kitchen, gathering place and parked 12- vehicles that I can count. There must be 35 people next to us.

The 2nd issue is one of the charms of the place - the River. It's flooded through here and everything is drenched, muddy and wet. We're here on a dryish day - but we had to move from our reserved site because it was under water with no way into our out of the RV without wading water or going through deep mud.

I'm guessing if you came here in the middle of the week it would be almost empty and pretty easy to find a nice site to enjoy.

Looking at the campgrounds near this spot, I don't see any better place. So, maybe this is the best on the northeast side of Indy?? We camped at White River Campground in a Motorhome.

Cedarbrook RV Park & Campgrounds, Mulberry Grove, Illinois

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

Where do the high ratings for this RV Park come from? When we pulled in here my Wife said, "Wow, they sure hired a good photographer for their website." The photos on the website are real, but they look so much better than the place does in real life. This is a campground in a rural setting a mile off of a major interstate that has 90% residents and 10% overnighters.

It would not be possible for us to describe this CG as a nice place and good value. Perhaps, it's best described as adequate or maybe serviceable.

Some examples of the issues here would be the subpar roads within the park. There are many "tight turn" signs and the trees lining the entrance roads are all scared from past scrapes with RVs. Just walking into the CG office gives you a feeling you've chosen the wrong CG for the night. You'll also find slapdash construction of plywood structures (multiple such structures) that give a decidedly shoddy appearance to the place. This includes bath houses with only one very old and well-used toilet and toilet/shower stalls made of plywood. Oddly the stalls had doors that were only ~20" or so wide.

After having stayed here we have no idea how it got rated as highly as it has but we can't agree with them. We camped at Cedarbrook RV Park & Campgrounds in a Motorhome.

Coachlight RV Park, Carthage, Missouri

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

Some people would rate this CG pretty highly. But we feel that any successful campground MUST include a Bath/shower option. We failed to notice this campground didn't have one when we booked our stay here. Surprise! It was nice enough otherwise - not a 9+ rating that it has. But a solid 7.5. But without any bathroom I'm rating it a 6.5 with a caution.

The owners here seem to have convinced themselves it doesn't matter. But it does to a certain group of campers. Why do you think that bathrooms and cleanliness are so important in other reviews? Yeah, it matters.

They had a patio - but no table of any kind. And the other campers are very close by.

If you're getting work done at Coachlight RV - it's the perfect location. We camped at Coachlight RV Park in a Motorhome.

Great KOA! Really. If every KOA was like this one, they would be preferred by everyone country-wide. We loved our site - concrete pad, grass, shrubs, patio table with an umbrella no less. Check in was great. And, the bathrooms? Top Notch. There's a pool, but we didn't use it. If I had to complain about anything it's that the dog park (there are two side by side) is too small. Everything else was done well and both looked and worked good. A+++ We camped at Durant / Choctaw Casino KOA in a Motorhome.

Red Barn RV Park, Roswell, New Mexico

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $33.00
Overall Rating:      

Small RV park just east of Roswell. Shady area with small grassy sites oriented around the property line. Two pull-through sites with a wooden fence gate in front so you can through when you leave.

Small/older buildings could be a former small farm house.

Very nice lady runs the park and does all she can to make the stay pleasant.

WiFi and Cell signals were good.

Small laundry and individual bath/shower rooms (one men's and one women's).

It's just a small quiet RV "park" on a rural road with about 60% of the RVs there staying on a monthly basis. We camped at Red Barn RV Park in a Motorhome.

Hilltop RV Park, Fort Stockton, Texas

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

Not sure where the high ratings come from on this campground. The campground is what passes for dirt in this area - crushed limestone or better known as caliche. It's bright white, sticks to everything and is as barren as a campground can get. I'm not talking about just in the site I'm talking about everywhere in the campground.

There were 2 or 3 other overnighters passing through here the night I stayed and all the rest (maybe 45) were workers, mostly oil filed or related industry workers. So, the morning came early when dozens of diesel trucks all started up to go to work around sun up.

There's a pool with some grass around it. and a small dog park and a long skinny dog "run" and that's the sum total of grass here.

You're right on I-10 on the access road but road noise wasn't a major issue because it's 100 degrees here in the summer and you'll keep all window shades pulled and the AC roaring.

There are two individual men's rooms / women's rooms - all full up all morning long.

WiFi was pretty good here and so was cell coverage.

It was a handy location, but even though I come back this way often I doubt I'd return.

PS. Fort Stockton has about 3-RV parks none of them are "nice." This might be the nicest of the 3, but that's all that can be said about it. We camped at Hilltop RV Park in a Motorhome.
