Prairie Pines Campground, Rantoul, Illinois

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $27.00
Overall Rating:      

A hidden gem, in as much as they could use signs to get you there. Aside from that this is a great park for an overnight or longer if you need to be in the area. Park building has individual restroom/showers and laundry. Utilities including wifi worked fine. Nice shady sites and ours was level. At 26.50 (cash/check, card is 30) it is well worthwhile. We camped at Prairie Pines Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Mark Twain Cave Campground, Hannibal, Missouri

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $32.00
Overall Rating:      

The park was a pleasant experience. Our back in site was nice and shaded. Utilities and wifi worked fine. It was quiet. Did have a sandwich at the camp restaurant and it was OK. It is a good camp for the Hannibal attractions just a couple of miles south of town. The restroom/showers are a bit dated and not AC, but were clean. Well worth the cost. We camped at Mark Twain Cave Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

River towns can be nasty but Hannibal is quite nice. The downtown and nearby neighborhoods provide about 100 years of architectural history. Riverboat ride is worthwhile. Local restaurants are affordable. Walmart, fast food, and chain restaurants are (a drive) north of the old town. All in all a very nice balance of touristy and historic.

Sharp RV Park, Saint Joseph, Missouri

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $14.00
Overall Rating:      

The outstanding feature of this park is 14 bucks, cash, with Passport America. The electric was on the wrong side with no breaker switch. The water was from a hose on a shared spigot down a steep incline. The sewer was perfect. It is a hillside so sites are where they found a relatively flat area. The Bathroom/Shower (one, in a trailer building with a 2 machine laundry) was very clean. Wifi was fine. Maneuvering can be tight. Some left early for work. If you are PA and willing to put up with some minor hassles it is a convenient overnight off I-29. We camped at Sharp RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Prairie Oasis Campground and Cabins, Henderson, Nebraska

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $37.00

This is a nice park. Utilities were fine although a bit dated. Wifi was very good. Site was level and shaded. It is convenient to I 80 but that means a bit of noise but it was background to us. They have "family" things. We camped at Prairie Oasis Campground and Cabins in a Travel Trailer.

Denver East / Strasburg KOA, Strasburg, Colorado

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $43.00
Overall Rating:      

Because of the premium price I am critical of KOAs. I expect near perfection. I am happy to say this park measures up. From check in onward everything was good, even the pizza they sell, not great but good. Wifi, utilities, service was above average. The cleanliness of the restroom/shower impressed my wife. We did not use the pool or playground equipment or go to the movie but all seemed good. We had family visiting and there was no problem in that regard. RV parks are limited in the Denver area and this is 25 miles from 225 the outerbelt east of the city. Good place to stop. We camped at Denver East / Strasburg KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Ami's Acres Campground, Glenwood Springs, Colorado

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

This a park in and on the mountains with sites on terraces. With prudent driving the situation is acceptable. The restrooms/showers are at the top of the hill and that may pose difficulties for some. The wifi works on and off, utilities were fine. Easy access to I 70 if the town is not destroying bridges. One question is why the dumpsters have to be emptied at 4:30 am. We camped at Ami's Acres Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Moab Rim RV Campark & Cabins, Moab, Utah

We had a W/E site that might be the shadiest in Utah. Most sites do have sewer. Dump station was convenient. The utilities were good including wifi. The restrooms/showers were acceptable. This park is very adequate for a base camp for area activities. Some traffic noise. We camped at Moab Rim RV Campark & Cabins in a Travel Trailer.

This park appears to be a regular stop for those going or coming from Las Vegas. It can fill up starting mid afternoon and all but empty the next morning. Although a dirt surface the site was level. Utilities work find including wifi. Restroom/shower simple but clean. Very convenient for I-15. We camped at Wagons West RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Ely KOA, Ely, Nevada

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $45.00
Overall Rating:      

As they charge more I expect more from KOA. Ely did not deliver. Had to level our trailer side to side. This normally does not rate a mention but the park is on a flat and periodic dressing of the parking surface seems a given. The utilities were OK although the park's drain had a fitting that just slipped in to the pipe. Many parks demand a tight seal, here the park was at fault. Three shower stalls and one was out of order. The one I used had a serious leak at the head fitting that sprayed water into the dressing area. There was always water on the floor outside the dressing area. The office staff was efficient and knowledgeable but were emplyees just doing their job. Overall it is overpriced. We camped at Ely KOA in a Travel Trailer.

The Nevada Northern Railroad is a wonderful excursion railroad. The train ride is nice and you get a tour of the repair shops and the museum. This is one of the most extensive railroad history experieces in the country. Ely has its share of casinos, restaurants, a couple of medium sized groceries, a golf course, and the unique service business that is legal in Nevada.

Days End RV Park, Standish, California

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

No pool, rec room, and TV was limited. We don't use those so our 10 is conditional. Also, I am ignoring that the soap dispenser in the men's was empty. What you get is a level site with good utilities and clean restrooms/showers that are handicap accessible. Laundry like new 1.25/0.75. Check in was fast and friendly. It is a quiet, rural location. Unless you want/need city services, concrete, and resort features this park is nearly perfect. Fine for an overnight or to just sit for a couple of days. We camped at Days End RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Friendly RV Park, Weed, California

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

Nice park easy to navigate, level, good utilities (an exception later), nice restrooms/showers, great staff. Get a reservation. During our stay the place filled nightly with overnighters from I-5. Though close, the hwy provided very little noise. The Pilot Truck stop contributed more noise but not bad. The exception noted above is that we lost power at the post at about 6 pm on a 100 degree day. The manager and owner began to deal with it immediately but before a professional diagnosed the problem it was too late to get parts. About a half dozen other sites had this problem. Things happen, and we respect the attempt to fix it. Yet, we find AC a necessity in this sort of weather, as do other seniors. It did cool enough to spend the night. One thing I find troubling is that the owner, manager, and camp host never said anything like "sorry this happened" or much less a rebate or other discount on this or future camping. We camped at Friendly RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Salmon Harbor RV Resort, Smith River, California

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $23.00
Overall Rating:      

There may be no better park for parking ON the coast. The Smith River does come in-between but the Pacific is right there, seals, sea lion, birds, and maybe an otter. The on the water sites are limited in number and what size rig will fit. The staff was friendly. End of the good. Although the utilities worked they might scare you. I was under the impression California had tough codes. They seem to have forgotten this park. That is the bad. The ugly was the restroom and showers. As the lower sites had no sewer so instead of cleaning out the storage area in our trailer that is really a shower I used the facilities. They do, I think, clean the toilets and sink but that is it. I have seen worse but those I did not use. There are rumors about restoration of the entire resort, Ship Ashore. It will be nice if it happens. To cap it all we went to the dump station after a week and found they had rented it as a campsite and had to wait until one of the pull thrus became available. We camped at Salmon Harbor RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

This is a fine base camp for coastal stuff and the redwoods. There are services in Brookings, OR which is closer than Crescent city. In CC there is a cheese shop that if you like cheese, don't miss it. It is a slightly challenging drive but Stout Grove may be the one stop shopping for seeing the redwoods.
