By The River RV Park & Campground, Kerrville, Texas

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $44.00
Overall Rating:      

I was here for an overnight, but pleased with what I got. I thought the price was a bit high considering all of the campground competition in this Texas Hill Country area that offer similar amenities and facilities for less money. And for that reason alone, I would not return. If you are assigned a suitable pull thru site, you will not have to unhook the tow. You can get unobstructed sat signals There is plenty of space between each site. All of the utilities worked well, but I did not check WiFi. We camped at By The River RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

Corral RV Park, Dalhart, Texas

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

Level, gravel sites. Pull thru's available if needed. Basically a parking lot with some trees, but very good for an overnight stop. Amenities as advertised. Power and water were OK. There is a laundry but didn't use it. Not a lot of choices for CGs in Dalhart so this would be the better choice. EZ in and out and convenient to the main highway. We camped at Corral RV Park in a Motorhome.

Yerby's RV Park, Dumas, Texas

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

Mostly concrete pads with mostly back-ins. Decent amount of space between them. Nice, fair new looking laundry facility which we did not use. Quite a few permanents but appeared well kept. Website a bit deceiving with pictures of sites with trees. There are some, but most sites are open sun. Water and power OK. They have WiFi and I got a signal, but didn't use it so can't comment on reliability. Near the main highway so it's easy in and out. Good overnight stop. We camped at Yerby's RV Park in a Motorhome.

Mountaindale Cabins & RV Resort, Colorado Springs, Colorado

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $47.00
Overall Rating:      

These people know how to do a first class CG! Pea gravel roads and sites. On site office/store is well stocked with munchies and dry goods that you might have run out of. Nice laundry, playground, and immaculacy landscaped high dessert style. No problems with power or water. I was going to take some pictures to post here, but the pictures and video on their website would do a better job of showing the amenities and facilities. I opted for a crescent shaped pull thru that had sufficient trees to provide afternoon shade, but I did have to put out my external sat antenna a few feet from the rig. But there are lots more nice sites to choose from where satellite signals aren't blocked. Their website page will allow you to click on a site and see photos of it which takes the guessing out of the selection process. Again, that's first class. Nice rec/computer/game room. Nightly rate may be a bit high for some, but you get what you pay for. I usually stay at another nice CG in the Colorado Springs area, but this one will be the replacement from now on. My only negative, which is not in the control of the CG, is that Verizon cell signal was almost non existent. We camped at Mountaindale Cabins & RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Eagle Nest Campground, Alto, New Mexico

Date of Stay: August, 2015 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a former USFS campground that has been turned over to the local Indian nation. Roads leading to the CG were good, but the interior roads are neglected. Most sites are crescent shaped P/T with nice space between them, but any RV over 35 ft will have leveling issues. The one bath house is functional but is neglected to the extent you would not want to use it. 50A voltage was low at 108 without appliances being used. No picnic tables and no fire ring. Sat signals available on most sites. VZW cell coverage was good. No WiFi. The grass did not appear to have been mowed in some time. It might be good for a night or two if you are looking for peace and quiet with starry nights or want to camp near the Apache Ski Resort. Otherwise, at $25, it's way overpriced. This one is not on my return list. We camped at Eagle Nest Campground in a Motorhome.

Valley of Fires Recreation Area (BLM), Carrizozo, New Mexico

Date of Stay: August, 2015 - $13.00
Overall Rating:      

The CG has 50/30amp service with paved roads and sites. The sites are either back-in or crescent shaped pull thrus. At least one third of the sites have leveling issues. Site 15 if the best site in the CG. There is also a separate tent only area that is very nice. Amenities include covered picnic table, grill, picnic pavilion, and a very nice, clean bath house. The area is high mountain desert landscape with no threes for shade. That means Hot in August. VZW was good, but there is no WiFi. Fees are based on hook ups. Mine was FHU with stated discount. We camped at Valley of Fires Recreation Area (BLM) in a Motorhome.

Mother Neff State Park, Moody, Texas

Date of Stay: June, 2015 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

This is one of Texas' earliest state parks so there is some history to it. The new renovation earlier this year resulted in a great campground. Access roads are paved and RV pads are concrete. Each has a nice stone patio area with picnic table and fire pit. On the left side of each pad is a stone covered pathway that makes it easy to get out your hookup equipment. There a few crescent shaped pull thrus, but back in's are fairly easy to get into. Utilities were good. 50A service voltage was good despite running two ac units; although, I was there mid-week when it wasn't crowded. There are picnic pavilions, a playground area, and nice bath house with ADA showers. There is a separate grass/treed tent camping area and dish washing station. Someone with RV experience put some thought into this project! There is hiking, and occasionally Ranger lead. Fish from the river that runs in the park. And, you do not need a fishing license to fish in a state park. As with all state parks, there is an additional per day entrance fee, but this one is cheap at $2. We camped at Mother Neff State Park in a Motorhome.

Topsail Hill State Preserve, Santa Rosa Beach, Florida

Date of Stay: December, 2014 - $22.00
Overall Rating:      

This and very nice state park campground. It is divided into six sections which encompasses RV and tent sites, and cabins. There are three small ponds where fishing and canoes are allowed. Space depends on which site is chosen. Some sites are a bit closer to each other, but there is no sardine feel to them. Roads are paved, sites are concrete and fairly level. Each site has a picnic table. There is a camp store, but I didn' t use it. There are lots of tall trees in the CG, so if satellite signal is desired, you need to ask about that. The cable is good with just about ever channel you would want. I had no problem with the utilities to include voltage, but did not need to use the air conditioning. Beach access isn't all that far from the center of the CG. VZW 4G was jut average and occasionally only had 3G. WiFi OK but I was closer to the front of the park. This would definitely be on my return list. We camped at Topsail Hill State Preserve in a Motorhome.

River Ranch RV Resort, New Braunfels, Texas

Date of Stay: October, 2014 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

I needed to be in the area for RV repairs and picked this CG as an RON (remain over night). There are only a handful of pull thru sites, but I wasn't towing so took a back in. No issues with parking my 38 footer. Sites are concrete and well spaced. The park sits between the interstate and a major highway so there is road noise, but then on the positive side there is easy access. The Guadalupe River fronts a portion of the CG, but there are only half dozen or so sites that have direct access to it. Check in was good and I was asked the age of my RV. It doesn't meet their website posted, 10 year old requirement but I supposed it looked good enough for me to stay. All utilities worked well, no problems with the WiFi, and Verizon 4G signal was good. The connect plug was there, but I didn't check cable. There's no trees to block satellite signals. I did not use the bathhouse facilities, but they were clean. There isn't much kids stuff, so Family Friendly is borderline. But, since there wasn't a total lack of it , so I gave it a yes. Despite the amenities, this is not a "Resort." It's more like a really good, convenient stop over with lots of nearby businesses that one might need. They offer several discounts; although, it's still a bit pricey. Mine was military. We camped at River Ranch RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Midland RV Campground, Midland, Texas

Date of Stay: September, 2014 - $32.00
Overall Rating:      

This is another west Texas CG catering to oil field workers and permanents but most have fairly new rigs so there wasn't a run down look to the park. Being close to I-20, it makes a good RON (remain over night) but that also makes for plenty of road noise and a lack of amenities such as picnic table, fire ring, etc. The short road leading to the CG is wash-boarded and a terrible drive, but the park doesn't own it. Go slow. All sites are gravel, level, and enough space to park your vehicle beside the RV. Utilities were good and WiFi was strong and fairly fast. Satellite reception would not be a problem, but the park has an excellent, long list of cable channels for viewing. VZW 4G cell service was available. A staff member stayed a bit after closing to get me checked in. Good customer service. My only real complaint is that they have way too many speed bumps. Some are high enough to make it difficult to roll over without badly rocking the RV. Rate is with Good Sams discount. It is probably best to make a reservation since the park was completely full. We camped at Midland RV Campground in a Motorhome.

La Vedara RV Park, Lamesa, Texas

Date of Stay: September, 2014 - $18.00
Overall Rating:      

We were looking for an RON (remain over night) place and thought this would do. We drove into the CG and found that it was the ultimate description of a sardine can type park. There had been a hard rain in the area for a couple of days and this place was a mud ball because of it. The website pictures are deceiving. I squeezed into one of the only unoccupied sites and found that I would probably be within inches of the next RV if I deployed my slides. But I needed a place to park for the night so I checked for an office building. There was none. I went to the convenience store mentioned in a previous review and it was closed. This appears to be a CG that caters only to permanent oil field workers and without any on site management. We left. We camped at La Vedara RV Park in a Motorhome.

Brantley Lake State Park, Carlsbad, New Mexico

Date of Stay: September, 2014 - $18.00
Overall Rating:      

We previously stayed here about 5 years ago and enjoyed the visit. Except for a nationally known CG a few miles down the road, it could be considered the best option for a park in Carlsbad. The sites and access roads are generally convenient for any sized rig. There are minimal amenities so it is not a destination park, but the utilities work well. If you don't make reservations, it's a gamble to get one of the FHU sites. Even if you don't, it's a convenient CG to Carlsbad Caverns and the price is right for a couple of days. We camped at Brantley Lake State Park in a Motorhome.

Holloman AFB FamCamp (Military FamCamp), Holloman AFB, New Mexico

Date of Stay: August, 2014 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a nice FamCamp. It is easy to get to on base and all sites are easily accessible. The park has a 50% mixture of concrete and/or gravel pads. Perimeter sites are back-in. Both types are level and have a comfortable amount of space between them, but all are without vegetation. Those sites that are concrete have a covered patio/picnic table area. The gravel sites do not. There are a few homesteaders who take up several of the nice concrete sites. The bathhouse, buck-a-load laundry facility, and dumpsters are located in the middle of the CG. There is no shade. No issues with the utilities, but the CG was only about one third full. Verizon 3G coverage was good. The on-base commissary and BX is full service. We camped at Holloman AFB FamCamp (Military FamCamp) in a Motorhome.

Bottomless Lakes State Park, Roswell, New Mexico

Date of Stay: July, 2014 - $14.00
Overall Rating:      

There are way more negatives than positives. It's peaceful and quiet, but getting here requires a torturous drive. The 8 mile road to the state park is poor. The 5 mile road into the campground, while paved, is a miserable, washboard surface that isn't much better than a covered wagon trail. If you go the 20 mph speed limit you will risk shaking off RV parts. The interior CG roads lack any normal signage that make it easy to get to and in your site. It's basically a free-for-all. I know that it rained prior to my arrival because the gate entry way was covered with couple inches of standing water. The CG roads have mud holes due to a lack of gravel. The ADA site is concrete. All others are gravel and level. There is a covered picnic table on all sites. There are some 50A sites, but I chose one with 30A. With only a few sites occupied, the voltage would only handle one AC and a major appliance. Water pressure was good. VZW 3G was just OK. The free WiFi was strong, but worthless. I could not connect to the simplest internet site. There is no sewer, but the dump station will handle all sized rigs. The bathrooms, while modern, were not all that clean. Don't expect to have a late dinner in town because the entry gate is locked at 9 pm. The small, gnat type, flying critters are abundant. The price is cheap, but I still would not return. We camped at Bottomless Lakes State Park in a Motorhome.

Buckley AFB Famcamp (Military FamCamp), Buckley AFB, Colorado

Date of Stay: July, 2014 - $22.00
Overall Rating:      

While it is apparent that there is very little management associated with this CG, I'm not one to look for dirt, or grass, when given a pile of gold. There are a lot more positives than negatives. All sites are absolutely level, concrete pads which any sized rig can fit onto with plenty of extra space for another vehicle. The interior road is asphalt. There are a handful of pull thru's, but don't expect to get one since this is a no-res CG. The bath house is modern with a couple showers/toilets each. The laundry room has two new wash/dry machines and they are free to use. Voltage is on the marginal side if you're a two AC RV and want to pop on the microwave or electric water heater. The CG was full and it was 90+ degrees at the time of this review. There are no trees to provide shade but then that makes it a cinch to lock in the sat signals. They do something with respect to WiFi that I have never seen done before. You can check out a Verizon 4G MiFi for a $50 refundable deposit and take it to your RV. It was fast, free access, and you're on your own network. If you happen to be a bandwidth hog, then you will be delighted. This is not a "kid friendly" park since there is no play ground, but there are plenty of kids here now and they seem to make do. Check-in at the rec center, albeit can't be done on the weekend, is easy with friendly and helpful staff. This is not your typical AF base in that there isn't a lot of base amenities. There is a commissary that is well stocked. You don't have to use the commercial gate. The base powers to be figures that everyone is totally without any RV driving skills, so they want you to use the gate that can accommodate a cruise ship. I always use the 6th street gate because it is the closest to the FamCamp. I am a 38 ft without a tow. 5ers or TTs may have a bit more of a challenge just due to the lack of backward visibility in turns, but if you are an experienced driver then it's doable. We camped at Buckley AFB Famcamp (Military FamCamp) in a Motorhome.
