Rock Springs / Green River KOA, Rock Springs, Wyoming

Date of Stay: May, 2009 - $37.00
Overall Rating:      

While I agree with the previous comments, one must remember this is a sparsely populated area of Wyoming. Choices in campgrounds are limited. Despite the closeness to the interstate that plagues most KOAs, the road noise here is minimal. WiFi is free and strong. Satellite signals are easily obtained because there aren’t any trees to block it. There were lots of cable channels and clean facilities. The permanent sites are in a separate area. Except for being absurdly over priced, mark it down as just a better choice of places to remain overnight while on the way to somewhere else. We camped at Rock Springs / Green River KOA in a Motorhome.

Peregrine Pines FamCamp (Military FamCamp), US Air Force Academy, Colorado

Date of Stay: May, 2009 - $17.00
Overall Rating:      

I normally wouldn’t rate a military campground on this site due to it being restricted to military and DoD personnel. But since it’s already here, I’ll provide an update to previous reviews. The header of of this review states for Military Camping Only. That’s not completely true. Civilians are allowed to stay here if accompanied by someone who is normally authorized to do so. It is an “in the woods” CG. Access roads aren't tight, but you'd do well to pay attention while driving to the site. Roads and sites are gravel. Some sites require a small degree of leveling. The is plenty of space between them. The main two bath houses are at the front and back of the park requiring a small hike if you’re not close. WiFi is still excellent and the water pressure still extremely high. We camped at Peregrine Pines FamCamp (Military FamCamp) in a Motorhome.

Terry Bison Ranch Resort, Cheyenne, Wyoming

Date of Stay: May, 2009 - $17.00
Overall Rating:      

You can view their website to see what this place was intended to be. It falls a bit short of that so it isn’t a destination park. It’s next to the interstate so road noise is constant. The access roads and pads are gravel. The sites are mostly pull thrus, level, and just long enough for a big rig, but very close together. The wind blows constantly in the spring. Enough to rattle the rolled up awnings. On the positive side, the voltage, water pressure, and customer service was good. Free WiFi with strong signal, but still slow. Bath and laundry facilities are well kept. There is a nice western style gift shop plus a restaurant on site. Notwithstanding the wind and road noise, on balance this is an OK place for a day or two. Rate reflects a Passport discount. We camped at Terry Bison Ranch Resort in a Motorhome.

Amarillo Ranch RV Park, Amarillo, Texas

Date of Stay: May, 2009 - $17.00
Overall Rating:      

C/G has all of the facilities one would expect from a higher rated campground so I will only add to the previous reviews. Pool is indoors. Overnight sites aren't spacious, but the rest of the park sites have plenty of space between them. Free Wi-Fi in the club house, but on site it is a pay for use system. Some playground equipment for kids. Plenty of cable channels. Water pressure and voltage was very good. Rate reflects a Passport America discount. We camped at Amarillo Ranch RV Park in a Motorhome.

Double Lake Recreation Area, Coldspring, Texas

Date of Stay: January, 2009 - $27.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a concessionaire managed, US Forest Service facility. The positives for this campground it is big rig friendly with paved access roads, easy in and out, and all sites are concrete or paved. Full hook-ups and pull thru’s are not the norm, but are available thru out the campground. Space between sites is abundant. Each has a picnic table and fire ring/grill. Water pressure and voltage was good. There is a nice separate tent area only, also spacious, but without hook-ups. Bath houses are conveniently spaced thru out the campground. There are two small lakes and nice biking/hiking trails. One lake has a pavilion, seasonal concession, and designated swimming area. The negatives are that the access roads have some potholes and crumbling pavement. Most sites will require some higher degree of leveling - more for longer rigs. The bath houses aren’t heated, there is no laundry or playground, dump station, and the single dumpster is not within walking distance of the campsites. Satellite reception will only be possible on a few sites and good TV reception is also minimal. The Golden Age and Access card is recognized, but only for a discount instead of the normal half price fee. Without this discount the cost is comparable to a commercial CG with more amenities. My rating is a reflection of a few too many negatives and the high price for a site. But, if the intent of one’s visit is to take advantage of natural surroundings with camp site privacy, then this is a good place to do it. We camped at Double Lake Recreation Area in a Motorhome.

White Oak Creek Park COE, Eufaula, Alabama

Date of Stay: January, 2009 - $10.00
Overall Rating:      

I concur with previous reviewers so I am just adding to the information. There are four separate looped areas with each having it a nice bath house and laundry. All are now 30A only, but one is supposedly being upgraded with 50A. Couldn't verify due to its being closed for the season. Some lakeside sites (back-ins) do have a entry slope issue. The pads are level, but the driveway slope will cause hitch dragging for travel trailers and motor homes. There are a handful of pull through sites. The library in Eufaula has a Wi-Fi hotspot. Rate reflects Access Pass discount. We camped at White Oak Creek Park COE in a Motorhome.

Eastbank COE, Bainbridge, Georgia

Date of Stay: December, 2008 - $9.00
Overall Rating:      

The mailing address for this campground is Bainbridge, GA but it is actually only a few miles from Chatachooee, FL. The website has reviews for this same campground under each of those two towns. Sites are in three separate loops. One is a paved parking lot with 30A. The other two have 50A. Of those, one has gravel pads and the other has concrete pads. Water pressure and voltage good. Fire rings, picnic table, and grills on all sites. Satellite reception might be a problem in two of the three loops due to trees. This is a nice campground, but there is an inconvenience factor here. There is only one bathhouse with one shower, one set of laundry equipment, and one dumpster – all are not within a normal walking distance for the majority of sites. For a campground of this size, that is not acceptable. The boat ramp is very narrow. There isn’t a playground. Because of the need for a 180 degree turn on both ends, those with rigs longer than about 32 feet will not be able to get into the dump station when entering the park. The nearest decent size grocery store is about 15 miles away. The picnic tables aren’t covered which is not the norm for COE parks. As mentioned in earlier reviews there is still an ant problem. Our rating reflects the inconvenience factor. Daily rate also reflects a half price park pass. We camped at Eastbank COE in a Motorhome.

Blackwater River State Park , Holt, Florida

Date of Stay: December, 2008 - $18.00
Overall Rating:      

Sites are definitely big rig friendly. Except for three concrete ones near the bathhouse the sites are gravel. All are level. Ample space between each especially 19 – 29. Paved access roads with no overhanging limbs to dodge. There is a small playground, hiking trails and nearby canoe rentals. Lots of tall trees so there may be some lack of satellite reception depending on the site. The overflow is a looped paved road/parking area that makes for a nice place to do a boondock over night if you are self-contained. I downgraded a point for lack of a laundry, but this is one of the nicest state park campgrounds I’ve been in. It was completely full with some overflow. Best to make a reservation. We camped at Blackwater River State Park in a Motorhome.

Coushatta Casino Resort Red Shoes RV Park, Kinder, Louisiana

Date of Stay: December, 2008 - $21.00
Overall Rating:      

Typical Casino RV Resort campground - concrete subdivision with level sites, ample space, and multiple amenities. The place was full and still had good voltage and water pressure. Wi-Fi signal good thru out the park; free, but a little slow at the time of my visit. The only negative for me was that the cable had limited channels, but since there isn't many trees, satellite signals are easily obtained. The CG is about 20 miles from the interstate so using it as an overnight might not be convenient altho I thought it worth the drive. We camped at Coushatta Casino Resort Red Shoes RV Park in a Motorhome.

San Angelo State Park, San Angelo, Texas

Date of Stay: September, 2008 - $18.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a former Corp park. It’s spread out over 15 miles with multiple sections with a total of about 125 sites, tents included. I am only reviewing about 40 sites near the south entrance. Those sites are long, level, and wide with picnic shelters and grills. Water and electric was good. Bath houses have some age but are clean and well maintained. No laundry. As previously mentioned in other reviews, the bath houses, playground, and dumpsters are not in close proximity to most sites. The lake level is still low. Boat ramps are unusable, but Texas State Parks allow free fishing if you are camping in them. Access roads are easy in and out. Park is about 3 miles from shopping and major highways which makes for good RON or extended stay. Posted rate does not include a $3/person/day extra charge. We camped at San Angelo State Park in a Motorhome.

Big Bend Resort & Adventures RV Park & Campground (Big Bend Motor Inn), Terlingua, Texas

Date of Stay: September, 2008 - $27.00
Overall Rating:      

It is obvious that this camp ground is over priced with few amenities, but when one needs a place to stay that is close and convenient to Big Bend, it’s the also the obvious choice. It’s pretty flat in this part of Texas, so one would expect level sites. This campground managed to make that a chore. Water pressure and voltage was good, but there were only five rigs in the campground at the time of my visit. There are only a few 50A sites. Cable channels are minimal. You will not get satellite signals. I do not know why, but I checked this out with other RVers while we were here. Perhaps it’s in the satellite twilight zone. Cell phone coverage was available. If you are close to the building, free Wi-Fi is available from a restaurant’s hotspot that is on the edge of the campground. If you are not, don’t expect to receive a signal. There are some nicer campgrounds that are 50-90 miles from Big Bend that offer more for the money. One must chose between them and being closer to the entrance of the National Park. My rating of this campground really means little. It come down to how far one wishes to drive from the campground to Big Bend. We camped at Big Bend Resort & Adventures RV Park & Campground (Big Bend Motor Inn) in a Motorhome.

MacMillen RV Park, Fort Davis, Texas

Date of Stay: September, 2008 - $14.00
Overall Rating:      

Al tho it’s a nice one, the campground is taking some liberty calling itself a resort without having all the extra amenities found at one. The sites are nice long, level pull thrus with plenty of space between them. Each site has a picnic table and some have a charcoal grill. There is a separate tent only area. Water pressure and voltage was good. Wi-Fi is free and an excellent signal. Antenna is in the middle of the campground. Bathhouse is very nice with individual bathroom/showers similar to home bathrooms. There is a clean laundry room. The one and only staff employee/host doesn’t spend 24/7 in the office, but there is an obvious note indicating which site she is in. She provided excellent customer service with area info and printed handouts. There isn’t any billboard signage for the campground, but the town is only a couple miles long. It isn’t that hard to find. The rate reflects the half price Passport discount. We camped at MacMillen RV Park in a Motorhome.

Brantley Lake State Park, Carlsbad, New Mexico

Date of Stay: September, 2008 - $18.00
Overall Rating:      

I generally agree with all previous positive comments, but would like to clarify some of that review information that is in error. The park isn’t actually ‘remote’ in that it’s only 12 miles from Carlsbad, which includes the 4.5 miles off the main highway. The park is landscaped with plenty of trees, but in the high desert area of SE NM they don’t grow high enough for shade. $4 won’t get you into a site unless you have some form of NM park pass. The rate posted for my review is the current published price. The one-way mileage to the nearby attraction of Sitting Bull Falls is actually 45 miles. There is 50 amp service in about a third of the sites to include the only three pull thru’s. About one third of the sites require at least some back to front leveling. Only about a third of the sites will accommodate big rigs, but those that do are nice, level, lengthy sites. Access roads and pads are paved. Water pressure and voltage was good, but the park wasn’t full. We camped at Brantley Lake State Park in a Motorhome.

Monahans Sandhills State Park, Monahans, Texas

Date of Stay: June, 2008 - $18.00
Overall Rating:      

A convenient state park about 3 miles off the interstate. Good for an overnighter and also extended stay if one is into sand dunes. About half of the sites are back-ins and half are pull thru. All but one or two will serve all size rigs even with tow vehicle attached. Water pressure good. Voltage good, but campground was only one third full. No trees, one bath house, no laundry facility. Covered picnic shelters. Easy access in and out. Ranger staff very helpful. I'd bump the rating up one point if it had sewer. We camped at Monahans Sandhills State Park in a Motorhome.

McCown Valley COE, Whitney, Texas

Date of Stay: February, 2008 - $18.00
Overall Rating:      

There are several loops in this COE campground park with two being dedicated to equestrian, one to tenters, one containing covered shelters, and the others are for the usual RV. All campground sites have fire pits, grills, and covered picnic tables. There is one playground for the entire park. One bathhouse per loop, but no laundry facilities. Water pressure and voltage was good. The 30A only loops are heavily treed making satellite reception difficult. Access roads in the majority of the loops are narrow with tight turns that require caution for longer rigs. Definitely, not big rig friendly. The loop containing 50A service was the least desirable. Those pads were gravel and mostly unleveled. All sites in this campground are much less spacious than that of a typical Corps park. The dump station wasn’t level, which would prohibit a complete emptying of all tanks. The trees over the roads and pads are in desperate need of trimming. All but the smallest of rigs will get a good scraping either on the access roads or the sites themselves. This COE park would be at the bottom of my list for a return visit. We camped at McCown Valley COE in a Motorhome.
