Oxbow Regional Park (BLM), Ehrenberg, Arizona

Date of Stay: January, 2018 - $8.00
Overall Rating:      

This is BLM land. Our rate reflects 50% off. We loved this campground, even if it was just a dirt parking lot. We stayed on the Oxbow lake side, as opposed to the Colorado River side. The sites aren't really designated, we just pulled up where we wanted. Our spot backed right up to the water. We were able to paddle the lake and ride the gravel roads in the area. Very quiet and dark at night. There is traffic on the gravel road, but not a lot, and none at night. The road in is a bit washboarded, but it isn't very long. We had 1 or 2 bars of ATT LTE. We camped at Oxbow Regional Park (BLM) in a Travel Trailer.

Squaw Lake BLM, Winterhaven, California

Date of Stay: January, 2018 - $8.00
Overall Rating:      

Our rate is 1/2 price. This is a nice campground for the lake and some fun hiking or gravel bike riding. The campground itself seems like it was once just a parking lot and then someone decided to make it a pay camping spot. We got lucky and were not near anyone using a generator. It was easy access for the kayak to the lake/river. There were some day use people bringing their boats, but the water seemed quite low, so not too many. At the end of the upper parking lot there is a trail that goes behind the hills and there are quite a few trails back there to explore. Showers/bathrooms were clean. Showers are pay - $1 for 7 minutes. ATT was nonexistent until we were packing to go, then we had 3 bars of LTE. Go figure. We camped at Squaw Lake BLM in a Travel Trailer.

Rivers Edge RV Resort, Winterhaven, California

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

This park should be called Freeway's Edge as it is sandwiched between the freeway and the river. The two pros it has going for it is the nice shade trees and the clean large restrooms/showers. Otherwise, it is so close to the freeway that we had difficulty sleeping even with all the windows closed. It was so noisy we spent no time outdoors at our site. The sites are perpendicular to the road, not very deep and very close to one another, so backing in was a challenge. The road in has several speed bumps that are really high and were hard on everything in the trailer. We were in site 422 Owl Lane and had an occasional sewer smell from somewhere. There were more over the air TV channels than there were cable channels (all of 5). Our two interactions with the staff in the office were rather unpleasant as both workers were unfriendly. And lastly, a they charge $2.50 for a wash and $2.50 for a dry - using tokens that can only be purchased in twos and cannot be returned if unused. All in all, we disliked this park more than anywhere else we have stayed. We will not return. We camped at Rivers Edge RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Whitewater Draw, McNeal, Arizona

Date of Stay: January, 2018 - $1.00
Overall Rating:      

Free! We really enjoyed our stay here and the ability to watch all the Sandhill Cranes! The camping is basically a circle with a (clean) pit toilet in the middle. We were here on the weekend and there were lots of people driving in and out to see the cranes all day, and kicking up quite a bit of dust. This is the reason for only 4 stars. But it was amazingly quiet here at night and we could hear the cranes inside our trailer. FYI - to the tick story, they only live in long grass, so if you stay on the trails, there should be no problem. A tick check after being out if you are concerned should also help, as ticks don't lock on very quickly and can be easily removed. Coming in via Bagby was shorter gravel and less washboarded than coming in from the north. We camped at Whitewater Draw in a Travel Trailer.

Fort Clark Springs, Brackettville, Texas

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

We were here for only one night, but liked the idea and would have liked to explore a bit more. Laundry was a big draw and it was cheap and easy there. The sites are narrow and close together. Gravel surface. Lots of long-termers. But the staff were all super friendly. We saw the pool, but no time to swim. Such an interesting idea to turn the old fort into housing. I'd go back just to explore a bit. WiFi was amazing. We camped at Fort Clark Springs in a Travel Trailer.

Malaquite Campground, Corpus Christi, Texas

Date of Stay: December, 2017 - $4.00
Overall Rating:      

All the sites are close together and in one long row. Half back up to the beach and half the other way. Nice sunrise across the dunes and the ocean. Bathrooms and showers were clean. The real drawback, for us, was the concert of generators that ran from late afternoon right up until quiet time at 10:00 p.m. Out neighbor's generator was right outside our bedroom window. If we hadn't had our windows closed, it would have been pretty unbearable - coming from both sides. We decided to join the band and fire our up as well. We camped at Malaquite Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Sandy Creek COE, Jasper, Texas

Date of Stay: December, 2017 - $9.00
Overall Rating:      

Our price reflects the 50% senior discount. We pulled in here late with just enough time to get set up before dark. Not sure of our site number, but we were way in the back, backed up to the lake in the woods. Sites are well spaced and very large. We did have to level side to side. Roads in the park are paved, as are the sites. We had a covered picnic table and fire ring. The road in was long and windy, but that is what you get if you want to be away from it all. ATT cell service was great. Bathrooms were clean. We camped at Sandy Creek COE in a Travel Trailer.

Gulpha Gorge Campground (NPS Campground), Hot Springs National Park, Arkansas

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

We enjoyed this park very much, especially the full hook-ups for such a low price. (Our rate reflects the 50% senior discount.) Our site was a back-in next to the creek and was paved with a picnic table. No fire pit, but there was a grill. Good location for exploring the town and nice hiking up the hill right from the campground. There probably would be some road noise, but with our windows closed, we heard nothing. One bar of ATT LTE, but it was pretty unusable with out boosting. We camped at Gulpha Gorge Campground (NPS Campground) in a Travel Trailer.

T. O. Fuller State Park, Memphis, Tennessee

Date of Stay: December, 2017 - $13.00
Overall Rating:      

I liked this park - and didn't like this park. First the pros: The price reflects 1/2 price as of 12/1 plus a senior discount. Our site was pretty level, treed, paved and clean. The shower/bathrooms were the warmest I have ever experienced this time of year. And there was plenty of very hot water. Laundry (in a state park?!?) was clean and cheap. ATT cell service was fine for web surfing and writing campground reviews. The staff at the visitor center were extremely friendly. And the one hiking trail was excellent, with lots of terrain change. Cons: You have to drive through some pretty bad neighborhoods to get into town...lots of abandoned houses, businesses and trash on the side of the road. And then there is the smell. We had it one day when there was a NW wind, which ,when I googled waste treatment, was where it was. So, my advice is come stay here but check the wind direction first. We camped at T. O. Fuller State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Brown County State Park, Nashville, Indiana

Date of Stay: November, 2017 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

I think our rate included the daily fee, but I am not really sure. The roads are hilly and winding, which makes for a very nice drive in the park. We stayed at Buffalo Ridge campground, which was the only one open. The campground is in a completely open area, surrounded by woods, so the outside sites back up to trees. The sites are fairly close together, so it could be noisy if it were busy, I suspect. The bath/shower house seems new and is very clean. Water got warm enough to shower! Apparently this is a mountain bike destination, but there seem to be few hiking trails, which is why I only give it 4 stars. As others have said, don't come in the north entrance, due to the covered bridge low clearance. A nice drive into Nashville, where there are lots of shops and a brewpub. We camped at Brown County State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Heritage Village Campground, Custer, South Dakota

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $22.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a good location for exploring the area when Custer State Park is full. We paid for 4 nights and got the 5th free, which brought our rate to 22. Sites are gravel (level!) pull throughs with grass, trees, fire ring and picnic table. No closer together than any other park. The bathroom/shower and laundry were very clean. Access is a little confusing. Continue past the store/bar down the gravel road to get to the park. We camped at Heritage Village Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Powder River Campground & Cabins, Kaycee, Wyoming

Date of Stay: April, 2017 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

Our rate reflected a discount. The two RV parks in town are owned by the same family, so they kind of have a monopoly going. This one is a small gravel/dirt lot with trees around the periphery. Might be a little muddy if it rains. Our pull-through was large and long and the utilities worked well. We were the only ones in the place, so the wifi was good enough to stream. Restrooms/showers were dated, but clean. The laundry room was also clean. Staff was pleasant. I would make an overnight stop here again.

Woody Mountain Campground & RV Park, Flagstaff, Arizona

Date of Stay: March, 2017 - $38.00
Overall Rating:      

Woody Mountain is camping under the canopy of Ponderosa Pines. We stayed here very early in the season - their first night open, I think - so the campground was pretty empty. That made for a very nice experience 3 of the 4 nights we were here. We were camping with friends who were in site 19, and one of the nights someone pulled into site 18 between us so we looked out at a giant white wall that night. Don't know why they put someone there when the park was not very full....The sites are very close together, so if it was busy, it would have been a completely different experience. Site 17 is really narrow we came to realize, much narrower than the others, so I would not take that one again. We also did have trouble leveling front to back as there must have been a bit of a dip in the middle of the site. Bathrooms were old, but clean. Laundry was clean but only had cold water wash. Staff was very! friendly. There is quite a bit of train noise at night. We camped at Woody Mountain Campground & RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Point of Rocks RV Campground, Prescott, Arizona

Date of Stay: March, 2017 - $38.00
Overall Rating:      

This place was packed this time of year, as are most RV parks, as not much else is open yet. I don't think I would navigate this park with a big rig. Our first site was on the outside of the loop and backed up to the rocks, which we loved. Our second site was in the center and we had RVs on 3 sides practically looking in all our windows. Sites are very close, both side to side and back to back. The entire park is dirt so there was a lot of dust blowing around every time someone drove through. I would not want to be here when it was windy! There are a lot of trees and shrubbery, which offers some nice shade. The bathrooms are tired, but extremely clean. The laundry was also very clean. Check in was easy and half the staff were friendly and the other half perfunctory. It was very quiet here at night. We had the windows closed and did not hear any road noise. Great location for visiting either of the two lakes - both of which have great nooks and crannies for exploring by kayak. Both also have fun trails to hike. The campground abuts Lake Watkins and you can walk the trail to the lake. You can also do some bouldering right from the campground. I would give this one more star if they laid down some gravel. We camped at Point of Rocks RV Campground in a Travel Trailer.

White Tank Regional Park, Waddell, Arizona

Date of Stay: March, 2017 - $12.00
Overall Rating:      

We were able to park in the overflow lot for a much lower cost. However, this lot is only available if all the other spots are taken. The "camping" is in the open gravel parking lot for the mountain bike area at the very end of the road in the park. If you come without water, be aware the dump station does not have potable water. The potable water spigot is at the end of the paved road. There is a loop there with a picnic table and a water spigot. We had two campers who decided they needed to run their generators in the middle of the night. Perhaps someone was in an iron lung and had an emergency..... And the port-a-pottie in this parking lot has not been cleaned in years. But - beautiful drive through the park and lots of nice hiking. Very busy this time of year. We camped at White Tank Regional Park in a Travel Trailer.
