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. We camped at Powder River Campground & Cabins in a Travel Trailer.

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.

Mesquite Spring (NPS Campground), Death Valley National Park, California

Date of Stay: March, 2017 - $7.00
Overall Rating:      

The rate reflects the half price senior park pass. Mesquite Spring campground is 2 miles down hill almost into the wash. The roads are paved and the sites are gravel and well spaced, but not terribly level. Very dark at night - the stars are amazing. This is a great jumping off point to go to the Racetrack. Heed the park advice and start out in the morning. It took us 2 hours to drive each way. Also, as Scotty's castle is closed right now, there is very little traffic on the roads in the northern part of the park so it is a great place to ride a bike! No cell service. We camped at Mesquite Spring (NPS Campground) in a Travel Trailer.

Pechanga RV Resort & Casino, Temecula, California

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

We stayed here two nights before a scheduled reservation in San Diego. Our price reflects a AAA discount. The best thing about this park is that they actually have wifi that works and works well! At all hours! With a pretty full park! That seems pretty amazing to me. Otherwise it is a typical upscale RV park. Sites are concrete, big and nice and level. I saw a guy with a campfire going at his site, he must have a portable pit, so this must be allowed? As others have said, there is lots of construction noise due to the new hotel going up - and it goes until pretty late at night. No discounts for this, but they did have ear plugs in the office. We camped at Pechanga RV Resort & Casino in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Confusing to get in here right now. Follow the electronic signs (which are also kind of confusing) to Oak Avenue, but be aware Oak Avenue doesn't appear on Google maps yet. I think it is called Wolf Creek Road on the other side of the street. Lots of nice hiking at the Santa Rosa Plateau Ecological Reserve.

Sycamore Grove Campground, Red Bluff, California

Date of Stay: January, 2017 - $13.00

Site 24 was perfectly level for us. With the water and electric hookup, paved sites and bathrooms with showers this forest service site is a steal at the senior park pass rate. No useable ATT service at our site without a booster. We camped at Sycamore Grove Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Lava Beds National Monument - Indian Wells Campground, Tulelake, California

Date of Stay: October, 2016 - $5.00
Overall Rating:      

Our rate reflects the 50% national park pass discount. The B loop seemed to have bigger spaces, many of which are a bump out off to the side of the road. So if you don't get one on the right side of the road, your door will open to the road. Or you can drive the wrong way down the road to get the door opening off the road (as we did) and hope you can pull out without meeting any cars. All the roads are asphalt, but the rest of the site is pretty much dirt. Lots of small trees and shrubs for shade, and the sites are nicely spaced. The bathrooms were clean and well maintained. We had good cell coverage and actually had TV on the antenna. We camped at Lava Beds National Monument - Indian Wells Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Oregon Motel 8 & RV Park, Klamath Falls, Oregon

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $39.00
Overall Rating:      

The park is a big lot behind the motel and the sites are gravel and right next to each other. We did have 30 amp service as did our neighbors. We also had a shade tree. The laundry room and bathrooms were clean. The staff was friendly. Not a lot of choices in Klamath, so this is a good option. It was quiet as the motel acted as a buffer from the highway noise. WIFI worked great in the afternoon and again after about 9 p.m. We camped at Oregon Motel 8 & RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Memaloose State Park, Hood River, Oregon

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $19.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a very pretty campground that is also very noisy. The road noise is so loud we didn't have to feel bad about running our generator as we couldn't even hear it! It did quiet a bit at night, though. All the sites and roads are asphalt and in good shape. Ours was fairly level. The "tent" sites are plenty long for an RV, our site was occupied by an 38 foot fifth wheel before us. The tent sites have a water hookup. The flush toilets were very clean. It's a good place to stay to explore, but I wouldn't want to hang out at the campground. We camped at Memaloose State Park in a Travel Trailer.
