Buffalo KOA , Buffalo, Wyoming

Date of Stay: April, 2018 - $41.00
Overall Rating:

This is our second overnight stay at this KOA. Their official spring opening date is 4/15, but know if they are there earlier than that they will be open - we have done this twice. So call and check. Sites are level and gravel, some with cement pad, but close together. Showers/bathrooms and clean. Wifi worked great - but we were the only ones here. Staff is very friendly. We camped at Buffalo KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Boise Riverside RV Park, Boise, Idaho

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

Unfortunately the path was flooded when we were there, so we were not able to explore it as we would have liked. I understand this is a common occurrence in the spring. Sites were very close together and ours was very short. Gravel base and not level. Some of the sites are actually on grass. Good location for exploring Boise. Laundry, showers and bathrooms were very clean. Staff was very friendly. We camped at Boise Riverside RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Fort Bridger RV Camp, Fort Bridger, Wyoming

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

The campground is located well away from the freeway, so there is no road noise. The sites are in a open grassy area. Sites were very level. The road is dirt, so there were a lot of puddles this time of year. There were a few long termers. We were the only short termers there so the wifi worked great. Bathrooms, shower rooms and laundry were very clean and tidy. Staff was very friendly. Cell service worked well. We camped at Fort Bridger RV Camp in a Travel Trailer.

Maple Leaf RV Park, Morgan Hill, California

Date of Stay: March, 2018 - $52.00
Overall Rating:

We were not optimistic after reading reviews about this place. However, we were pleasantly surprised. It is very neat and clean. Bathrooms and laundry were old but tidy. $1.50 for wash and same for dry. It is jam packed and we may have gotten the only site left. Many permanent trailers that have been brought in by the owners and many long termers from the looks of things. The sites are very close together but are concrete with fake grass in between. The staff was helpful and friendly and it was very quiet when we were here. We had the windows closed and did not hear any road noise. Cell service was good, which seems to be an issue with other parks that are not close to the road here. We camped at Maple Leaf RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Spring Lake Park, Santa Rosa, California

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

This is a beautiful campground full of oaks dripping with Spanish Moss. The terrain undulates, so some of the spots are high and some low and widely spaced. The road and sites are all paved. Our site was plenty large enough for our trailer and truck. Some of the sites looked pretty short. I don't think anything too large would fit in here. We did have to level a bit side to side. Bathrooms are very tired and old, but clean. It was a good location for exploring the area. The coast is within an hour and Armstrong Woods is a great place to see redwoods. Good ATT cell service. We camped at Spring Lake Park in a Travel Trailer.

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.

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.
