Willow Springs RV Park (formerly Kickback RV Park), Raton, New Mexico

Date of Stay: October, 2016 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

Site was large enough for our 40' fifth wheel and tow vehicle. Site width was adequate (barely) for us to extend our four slides. Rate of $30 is for cash. Would have cost $34 if we used plastic. Easy on/off from interstate. Friendly herd of goats in adjoining pasture. We camped at Willow Springs RV Park (formerly Kickback RV Park) in a Fifth Wheel.

Kamper's Lodge Campground, Wilson, North Carolina

Date of Stay: April, 2016 - $23.00
Overall Rating:      

A good park. Only complaint is the rate. $35 advertised on website for 30/50 amp full hookup site. Actual rate ("She went up LONG ago," said office staff.) is $45. Still not a bad deal if using PA ($22.50) but wish I had had this information to factor into my decision to stay here for 6 nights. This is maybe a $35 a night undiscounted rate park but definitely not a $45 one. Interestingly the web site does list $45 for a 100 amp site. Never heard of that electric service for an RV before. I have to wonder what my rate would have been if I had not mentioned PA. Lot spacing was spacious with some shade. Site surface is gravel featuring a fire ring, picnic table and patio. We camped at Kamper's Lodge Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Nelson's Landing RV Park, Nelson, Wisconsin

Date of Stay: September, 2015 - $18.00
Overall Rating:      

Reminds me of, "Build it and they will come," from some movie. Except in this case, a lovely 100 site RV Park was built and thus far, they have not come. Mostly fewer than 10 sites filled during our month stay. Large, level, full hookup sites. Sites and roads are gravel. Most sites have picnic tables and some have a concrete pad for the table. Rate is for a monthly stay including tax and electricity. Trains are frequent, sometimes several in an hour, but I was not even slightly disturbed by them. To find this place, put the US Post Office, Nelson, WI 54756. Entrance to the park is right across the road from the Post Office. Check in is at the Nelson Cheese Factory (sign says Creamery) around the block from the RV Park entrance. Good AT&T wireless coverage, in fact it tested the fastest I have ever encountered. VERY slow T-Mobile wireless. Wi-Fi was installed while we were here and was satisfactory, with but a few short outage periods. A washer and dryer were installed in the new shower/laundry building while we were here, but we did not try them. No cable, but had excellent reception on Dish satellite, due to no large trees. Plenty of smaller ones have been planted. We camped at Nelson's Landing RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

About 40 minutes to a large supermarket or a SuperWalmart. Had about the best hamburger ever at the Alma Hotel in the town of Alma, about 10 miles downstream from Nelson. The Cheese Factory/Creamery has great ice cream. National Eagle Center is just across the bridge in Wabasha, MN. We enjoyed the Laura Ingalls Wilder Days celebration in Pepin, a few miles upstream from here.

Indian Springs Ranch Campground, Penrose, Colorado

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

Price is based on the full-hookup monthly rate. If you are looking for continual activities, water park, playgrounds, and miniature golf, this may not be the campground for you. If you are into quiet laid-back mountain views with plenty of trails to stroll among Rocky Mountain junipers and pinion pines, this unique family-run campground on a working ranch might well be just what you are looking for. The local birds include several varieties of hummingbirds, scrub jays, mountain chickadees, canyon and spotted towhees, and pink sided and red backed juncos. Nearby fields are alive with prairie dogs, mountain bluebirds, and the occasional road runner. The campground is well laid out with small trees near most campsites. The bathroom/shower area is clean and inviting as is the pool that is heated by a solar array. Well-behaved, non-aggressive dogs are welcome. Satellite television works well, the Verizon hotspot has no signal, but the camp Wifi is sufficient for browsing and emails. Phone signals are iffy but our Wilson signal booster gives a reasonable signal on AT&T phones. This is the high desert on a working cattle ranch so there may be some dust at times and a few cattle might wander through the campground. They are gentle beasts that add to the ambiance of the place without paying much attention to the campers. The a mile long dirt road once you turn into the ranch gate is a bit bumpy but easily managed by any size rig. We’ve camped throughout the United States and this particular campsite in this campground ranks among the top 3 campsites that we’ve occupied in our travels. We would definitely come back if we are in this area again. We are camping here in a travel trailer. Our original intent was stay here for the month of April, however, we’ve liked it so well we have extended our stay through the month of May. Still here enjoying springtime in the Rockies! We camped at Indian Springs Ranch Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Palo Duro Canyon State Park, Canyon, Texas

Date of Stay: March, 2014 - $34.00
Overall Rating:      

As another reviewer remarked, the nightly fee was $24 but they tack on a $5 charge for each person per night so our nightly rate was $34. This seems a rather disingenuous way to post rates. The campground, over all, however, was spectacular. It is possible to wander through most of the park without necessarily following specific trails. The scenery definitely makes the experience unique. We camped in the Mesquite section of the park. Since there are no sewer hook-ups, we used our tag-along (portable waste tank) to empty tanks so were able to use the closest dump. However, if you have a rig of any size and do not use a tag-along, you will need to drive to a farther dump station since the one closest to Mesquite is too small for a large rig. We would definitely stay here again for a few nights but could not afford this rate for a full 2 weeks. We camped at Palo Duro Canyon State Park in a Travel Trailer.
