Clovis RV Park, Clovis, New Mexico

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

This was a pleasant surprise. We picked this park because it was away from the railroad. Others in the area were right on the tracks. It was quiet!! Most here are permanent residents but not what you normally see. There were no trashy site, loose animals, loose kids, etc. It was convenient to everything we were wanted to see. Good shopping and good restaurants. Very good wifi. Easy satellite setup. Good ATT cell service. Staff was extremely friendly, easy pull-thru site, easy access to utilities. It has an interesting layout. It doesn't appear that any two sites are alike and the sites are nicely spaced. We would definitely stay here again. The only negative was the presence of "goat heads" in the grass, but that is just a something that goes with the area. We camped at Clovis RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Enchanted Trails RV Park & Trading Post, Albuquerque, New Mexico

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $19.00
Overall Rating:

When we arrived we talked about rates. The $ for two weeks and 4 days was quite a bit more than the monthly rate. Asked if we could take the monthly rate and just leave after 18 days + electricity. They agreed. Very nice and was much cheaper. Easy satellite set-up. Good wifi. Even though it is on the far west side of Albuquerque, things weren't inconvenient. There is a Camping World next door which is convenient + an RV "repairman + some parts + propane" (H & L Enterprises) on site. He was extremely helpful when we had a propane regulator problem. We would stay here again. We camped at Enchanted Trails RV Park & Trading Post in a Travel Trailer.

RV Resort of Ruidoso, Ruidoso, New Mexico

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $19.00
Overall Rating:

Rate quoted is for a monthly rate. We stayed here for 2 1/2 months and really enjoyed it. Sites are tiered on the side of a hill therefore most are different. We had only planned to stay for 45 days but decide to try to stay longer and the manager was able to find us another site for the extra month. Very helpful. Easy satellite set-up since we have a moveable dish. Those that are roof mounted could have a problem in certain sites. Good wifi. Good ATT. Very convenient to everything. We camped at RV Resort of Ruidoso in a Travel Trailer.

Colorado Heights Camping Resort, Monument, Colorado

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

As someone else stated-TREES. They are a big problem getting to and from your site. We have a 32' TT and still had to be very careful. I do not see how some of these large MH and 5th wheels make it without damage. We have stayed here on several occasions and that is the main problem. I don't know why they don't cut some trees. It's not like there is a shortage in the park. Would have given a higher rating except for this. Other than that: nice staff, very helpful in all respects. We had a site at the highest area in the park and therefore easy satellite setup. I am sure others had a problem. Fair wifi. We would stay here again.

Douglas KOA, Douglas, Wyoming

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

Most KOA's are overpriced. This one is not. Site was fairly easy in-out with trash cans at each site. Staff was friendly and helpful. Good wifi, good ATT, easy satellite set-up. Good cable. Roads and sites are gravel but level. Not much to fuss about. We would stay here again. We camped at Douglas KOA in a Travel Trailer.

If you have the time visit the statue of Sir Barton, the first triple crown winner in 1919, in a local park and then see Ayres Natural Bridge. It is 10 miles north of town and then 5 miles on a poor road but worth it.

Hill's RV Park & Campground, Plankinton, South Dakota

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $19.00
Overall Rating:

This is a no-frills park, which is fine with us, though there is a pool. All sites are long, easy-in, easy-out pull throughs with plenty of space between. They main problem was that all roads are gravel and since most people would not drive slowly the dust was bad. Easy satellite set-up and good AT&T. Wifi was interesting. At times it could be great and others it was so slow that it was useless. There wasn't any logical reason as it could be bad when there were only two rigs in the park and bad when the park was full. Go figure. The owner was extremely nice and helpful. We stayed here for a week waiting out July 4th. We would stay here again. We camped at Hill's RV Park & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Cutty's Okoboji Resort Club, Spirit Lake, Iowa

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

This is truly one of the nicest C2C parks we have used. The only reason I didn't give it a 10 was trees. There were too many to even think about satellite reception and this is probably the reason they only have wifi in the main registration area. It is excellent there. That being said about the satellite, they charge $2.00/day for cable and it is digital, not the grainy analog stuff you usually pay for. Now for more positives: the staff was very friendly and helpful, easy pull through sites, adequate room between rigs, good AT&T. Grill at each site if needed. I am an old f--- but they had lots of activities for everyone. On the weekend they were full with many kids but everyone was well behaved and things quieted down at 10:00. Great pool and excellent cafe in the main hall. I ate breakfast there twice: it was good and inexpensive. Laundry was inexpensive and convenient. They entire area was very nice and we would stay here again. We camped at Cutty's Okoboji Resort Club in a Travel Trailer.

Lake Shore RV Resort, Oelwein, Iowa

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $15.00
Overall Rating:

I would have given a higher rating except for three things: utility placement, WiFi, mail acceptance. The water and electric hookups are at the far back of the sites and required all of our extensions to reach them. Sewer was fine. Fire rings were placed close to the rig behind your site and would have caused a problem if they had been used. Thank goodness they weren't. Whoever said the WiFi was good must have used it at 3:00 AM. It was fair for about 20% of the time and awful the remaining. We were not streaming or using Skype; I suspect others were. We were using an external adapter and it usually works great. There was a strong signal but it sometime took several minutes to load a site. Coast to Coast says they accept visitor mail. I called to double check. Yes. When I got there I asked when their mail was delivered. Was told they only accepted UPS and FedEx. Contacted the local PO and picked it up there. Send it to General delivery. On a positive note it was very quiet, plenty of space at sites, good for satellite reception, fair AT&T. Lots of rain while we were there but very good drainage. Managers were friendly and helpful. We would stay here again. We camped at Lake Shore RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Batesville KOA, Batesville, Indiana

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

Some of the bad reviews didn't apply to us. Initially we understood that the hook-ups were w/e only. We were given our choice of sites and had full hook-ups. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The site was somewhat un-level but not impossible. Our area was very quiet at night. We asked for and got an area with no trees for easy satellite set-up. ATT was good. Wifi was available only at two spots and one of them wasn't working. There was a lot of cruising around in golf carts and therefore raising dust but all in all this was a very satisfactory campground. We would stay here again. We camped at Batesville KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Bass Lake RV Campground, Dillon, South Carolina

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $18.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed here in 2003 and were not impressed. Scratch that. Either it is much improved or we previously missed something. The manager was very friendly, it was quiet, sites were easy in-easy out, very level. This is the first time in a long time we didn't have to put blocks under the wheels. We had easy satellite set-up, others would have had problems. Wifi was fair, though we have come to expect that. ATT was good. We would definitely stay here again.

McDowell Nature Preserve, Charlotte, North Carolina

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

Viewed from the point of a senior citizen this is not a great CG. It is very difficult to get anything level. The sites are off level every which way. It is impossible to get satellite reception due to the trees, over the air is iffy and cell phone is iffy. That being said for younger people it is a great place. The kids have playgrounds and there are many nature trails. Overall it is a nice campground, just not for us. We camped at McDowell Nature Preserve in a Travel Trailer.

Goose Creek RV & Camping Resort, Newport, North Carolina

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $37.00
Overall Rating:

Some of the things that others didn't like didn't bother us. The staff was very friendly, the park was clean. Some have mentioned that the vast majority are permanent residents. This is true but all sites appear to be well kept, not a bunch of "junkers" as we have seen at other parks. ATT was good, easy satellite set-up. Sites were a little close and angled up in the back but we had no trouble leveling. I would have given this a little higher rating except for the wifi. The cost was $3.95/day. We have an external adapter which gives us excellent reception. We had a good signal but the wifi was VERY slow most of the time. We weren't streaming or skyping and it sometime took over a minute to load a site. We would stay here again/ We camped at Goose Creek RV & Camping Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Wilderness Presidential Resort, Spotsylvania, Virginia

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

As someone else said there are trashy RVs all over the place but as far as our area it was satisfactory. We were lucky and had a site where I could get satellite; there would be many that couldn't because of trees. There is no wifi except in Clubhouse. It is adequate. ATT cell service is iffy. We stay here to visit relatives but be aware that traffic in the entire Fredericksburg area is AWFUL. Don't plan to get anywhere fast at any time of day.

This is one of the most nicely laid out campgrounds we have been in. Large open sites. Easy access to Mt. Airy (Mayberry) Easy satellite set-up, good ATT. The only negative is the wifi.

Sites were easy in-easy out. Getting satellite reception was interesting considering all of the trees. Good ATT. Pretty good wifi. Very nice staff.
