New Lisbon Family Campground, Straughn, Indiana

Date of Stay: November, 2018 - $18.00
Overall Rating:

This is a nice little park and much appreciated in the late fall since it's one of the few that is still open until the end of November. The water is off but it's still a great overnight stop for anyone heading south and needing a place with electric and sewer hook-ups. Owners are on-site and very friendly and helpful. Our site was level gravel and hook-ups were conveniently located. There are improvements each time we stop here and they definitely work hard to make visitors feel welcome. Most of the new sites are pull-thrus. There are quite a few permanent sites back in the woods but they seem to be well maintained. We camped at New Lisbon Family Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Indianapolis KOA, Greenfield, Indiana

Date of Stay: November, 2018 - $48.00
Overall Rating:

This is pretty much a typical KOA except for the service....the people at the desk were exceptional!! We pulled in a matter of minutes before closing but they still greeted us with big smiles and offered to make us a pizza and deliver it to our site. Then, when we went to pull into our site, a huge rock was in the way. It had obviously been hit by someone who didn't bother to let the staff know. So, I ran back up to the office and stopped the young people who were closing up and getting into their cars. They gladly got the backhoe out and came down - in the still pouring rain - to move the rock so we could get parked. Service like that is rare and much appreciated. The site itself was plenty long enough and fairly level gravel. All hook-ups were convenient and worked well. We didn't bother to hook up the cable but were able to get many channels from the antenna. The wi-fi was good. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Indianapolis KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Sierra RV Park, Telephone, Texas

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

This is a relatively new park and is very much a work in progress. Right now, there are only back-in sites but the road and the sites are plenty wide to get backed in with no problem. Road and sites are both gravel and, due to the excessive rain the past couple of months, are rutted. The owner, who has to be one of the nicest people we've ever met, assures me that restrooms, showers, and wifi are in the works. The park is actually located in Telephone, TX but the nearest town is Bonham. It's about 8 miles off a main road (Route 78) and was amazingly quiet. The only sounds were crickets. The utilities all worked well and the water was the softest we've ever found in a campground anywhere. I would love to come back in a year or so and see what progress has been made. We camped at Sierra RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

San Angelo KOA, San Angelo, Texas

Date of Stay: October, 2018 - $33.00
Overall Rating:

We really liked this park. In some ways, it was a typical KOA, roads and sites were level gravel but pretty close together. There were some "premium" sites with much more space, patios, and fences between sites. The tent sites were very nice with raised spots and plenty of parking. The recycling center was great! I was absolutely thrilled to find an affordable KOA. We travel a lot and often avoid KOAs because of the expense. All utilities, including cable and wifi worked well and we were escorted to our site. Staff was very helpful, giving city maps and offering suggestions. The restrooms and showers were ceramic tile and very clean. There was even a huge handicapped shower stall. The laundry was small, with only 6 washers and dryers but very economical at $1.25 per washer and $1.00 per dryer. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at San Angelo KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Lost Alaskan RV Park, Alpine, Texas

Date of Stay: October, 2018 - $34.00
Overall Rating:

What a beautiful park! Wide paved roads and long, level gravel sites. Very friendly and helpful staff who went out of their way to add another day to our reservation and recommended a good local (Mexican) restaurant. We were escorted to our site. Very nice pool (which closed the first week of October) and large playground. Huge dog park although there were no separate areas for large and small dogs. There is a very nice community building which would be great for group get-togethers. The laundry was fairly large and clean and, although we didn't check the restrooms and showers, I'm sure they would have been clean and well-maintained due to the general condition of the park. Almost all sites are pull-thrus and the few back-ins around one edge of the park look to be permanent residents. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Lost Alaskan RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Rockin R RV Park, Brady, Texas

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

This is a nice little park but only if you're self-contained. There are no restrooms or showers. The sites are long, level sand with some shade trees and all utilities worked well. There is no cable and we were only able to pull in 3 channels on the antenna but wi-fi signal was strong. The pull-thru sites are very close but the back-ins are much more roomy. There are quite a few permanent residents but their sites were well-kept and there was no disturbance of any kind. There was some road noise since it's very close to the main route into Brady and is used by many big trucks hauling sand. We camped at Rockin R RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Bar J Hitchin Post RV, Sweetwater, Texas

Date of Stay: October, 2018 - $36.00
Overall Rating:

This is the second time we have stayed at this park and will be back. It's small without a lot of amenities but very nice for an overnight or couple of days' stay. The sites are long, fairly level gravel with quite a bit of space between them and some large trees for shade. All utilities worked well, including cable and wi-fi. Staff is friendly and helpful and trash is picked up daily from your site. It is across the road from a large Love's truck stop and close to the interstate so there is some road noise plus a nearby train track but we didn't find it too loud with the windows closed and the A/C running. We camped at Bar J Hitchin Post RV in a Fifth Wheel.

America's Best Campground, Branson, Missouri

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $36.00
Overall Rating:

We come to Branson twice a year for anywhere from a week to a month. This is the first time we have stayed at this campground but it definitely won't be the last. Sites are a little close but nice and shady. Staff was really helpful and friendly. All utilities worked well, including wi-fi and cable. Restrooms and showers were huge and extremely clean and well-maintained. Roads and sites were gravel but fairly level - or at least as level as anything can be in Branson. The laundry was very large and clean. The pool and hot tub were beautiful. Even as large as they are, they do fill up, especially on weekends, so reserve early. There is a car/RV wash on the premises. Trash is picked up at your site every day. There is a large building for gatherings. We camped at America's Best Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Little Turtle RV & Storage, Eufaula, Oklahoma

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $39.00
Overall Rating:

We travel from the Dallas area to Branson, MO a couple of times each year and have not had much luck finding nice campgrounds along the way. Now that we have found Little Turtle, we won't even consider staying anywhere else. What a beautiful campground! Extremely long, concrete sites with well-situated utilities. Exceptionally nice laundry and gorgeous pool. Staff is very friendly and helpful. There are some large trees for shade and many more have been planted and will be providing nice shade in a few more years. Wi-fi worked well but there are only a few cable channels and we were unable to pull in anything by the antenna since we are quite a ways from any city. We will definitely be back. We camped at Little Turtle RV & Storage in a Fifth Wheel.

If ever in need of tire service (we had a tire blow out on our fifth-wheel trailer on the way to the campground), go to Tire1One in Checotah. They were wonderful! Got us right in first thing Monday morning and replaced our tire for a very reasonable price. I would highly recommend them.

St. Louis West / Historic Route 66 KOA, Eureka, Missouri

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $53.00
Overall Rating:

This is pretty much a standard KOA; small sites, very close together. But, two things were outstanding; the tent sites and the recycling center. The tent sites were raised above ground level and filled with mulch and had nice wooden benches around the grills. The recycling center was especially nice. We try to recycle whenever we can but it seems that most campgrounds don't bother. All utilities, including cable and wi-fi worked well. We were escorted to our site and staff was helpful and friendly. There is a dog park available but it was at the complete opposite end of the park from our site so we didn't visit it.

Deer Ridge Camping Resort, Richmond, Indiana

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

We spent two nights here while visiting a nearby RV dealership. We paid $4 over the standard Passport America rate for 50 amp and another $4 for a pull thru site since we were unable to get our 40' rig into one of the back-in sites due to the narrowness of the road. The roads are narrow gravel with some fairly tight turns but we were able to get around with no problem. The utilities worked fine and we were able to pull in several channels by the antenna. There is no wi-fi at the sites, only at the office. The owners were friendly and helpful. The restrooms and showers were old but very clean and well maintained.

Dayton KOA, Brookville, Ohio

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $55.00
Overall Rating:

This is an absolutely beautiful park and also a perfect example of why we try to avoid KOA while on the road. The amenities are excellent, with every possible activity and recreation you could possibly ask for, including: full hook-ups, pull-thrus, patios, propane, fenced pet area, camping kitchen, cafe, hiking trails, pool, gem mine, playground, mini golf and fishing lakes. They even bake pizza on site and deliver it to your camper. But, $55 is just too much for someone (like us) who is traveling through the area and all we want is to pull in, hook up and go to bed. The campground is meticulously maintained and staff was extremely helpful and friendly. All hook-ups, including cable and wi-fi worked well. We camped at Dayton KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Timber Trails Campground, Mulberry Grove, Illinois

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $23.00
Overall Rating:

We have stayed at this park numerous times over the years and really like it for an overnight stop. There are many permanent residents but, for the most park, their sites are neat and well-kept. The large pull-thru sites at the front of the park do not have sewer hook-ups but the dump station is convenient on the road leaving the park and there are sites that do have sewers located back farther in the park. The owners are super nice - actually, a young couple have just taken over from the former owners (parents, I believe) and were very friendly and helpful. We were escorted to our site. All utilities worked well but there is no cable and we were unable to get wi-fi at all. The road leading in is gravel but relatively smooth and level. We will definitely stay here again.

Ozark Country Campground, Branson, Missouri

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

We have always loved this quiet, family-owned and operated park and have stayed here numerous times for quite a few years. Imagine our surprise when we pulled in this year for a month's stay and found over half the sites taken up with "park" models (which looked more like Section 8 or FEMA housing). They have installed 20 of these trailers (and we understand more are coming) and are putting 4 people in each one. I can't even imagine what 80+ permanent residents who don't have their own transportation - they are picked up and dropped off daily from their jobs cleaning the hotels and condos in Branson - will do to the park facilities. The small laundry will be completely overwhelmed, I'm sure. We were put in the area for permanent residents and all utilities worked well and wifi was great. The new managers are super people and the all-around handyman, is still there and couldn't be more helpful but I'm seriously concerned about the status of the park for the future. We may try it again this fall, but doubt if it will continue to be our favorite in the Branson area. I will report again after our fall visit. We camped at Ozark Country Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Sallisaw / Fort Smith West KOA, Sallisaw, Oklahoma

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

This is pretty much a typical KOA. Relatively level gravel/dirt sites that were long enough that we didn't have to unhook. Turns were tight with quite a few trees but we had no trouble getting around with our 40' fifth-wheel. The park is close to I-40 and very easy to get to but we didn't notice any traffic noise. Cable TV (with 54 channels) and wi-fi worked fine and all other utilities were convenient and worked well. They even give specs for both DirecTV and Dish for those with satellite dishes. Staff was particularly accommodating gladly moving us to a space closer to the dog park when we asked. The dog park was large and clean but no separate areas for large and small dogs. We will probably stay here again. We camped at Sallisaw / Fort Smith West KOA in a Fifth Wheel.
