Another beautiful public park campground near Phoenix, with great mountain views. We stayed a week in the new section, sites 76-104, which all have electric and water. The sites here are much closer together than in the old section, with those around the outside of the loop (like ours) having a bit more privacy than those in the center of the loop, which looked really crammed together, one on top of the next. Sites are paved which is nice, but not level; we needed wood blocks under our front tires before our jacks could get us level. There is no bath house in the new section, so it's either a drive or a fairly long walk to get to one of the two bath houses in the old section. The old section has much more spacious and private sites, some with electric and water and some without hookups. Generators are allowed on the no hookup sites, so there will be some noise from them. The showers were a bit dated-looking, but the water was hot with good pressure which is what matters to us! We like that the various trails are easily accessible right from the campground, rather than having to drive to a trailhead. There were plenty of places to walk our dog. It's an 8-10 minute drive to supermarkets and restaurants in Apache Junction. Our Verizon and AT&T both worked pretty well without a booster, though our AT&T signal was only 1 bar at our site. There were lots of cholla cactus around the campground, including several right at the edge of our site, and our dog and our neighbor got stuck by them, so be careful! We'd return here.

We were not too impressed by this KOA. The sites were, as expected, fairly close together in a gravel lot with a few trees and cactus interspersed. Some of the shorter sites were more wooded, but many sites were wide open with no shade. Our 50 amp electric voltage was very low and if we tried to run both air conditioners (it was 90 degrees in March) our power management system kept shutting off our power with a low voltage warning. The campground was half empty so we were surprised to have low voltage problems. We reported it to the office but they didn't have anyone with experience to troubleshoot it. On our second evening, the water to the campground cut off unexpectedly for a while. We called to report it but the office was closed so we just waited it out. The office is closed from 11am to 3pm which also makes things a little awkward. There's quite a lot of highway noise as the KOA is right off the interstate, and there's a fairly loud train that goes by from time to time. There's a decent-sized dog park and a huge empty field where dogs can be walked, but which is also used for grazing by the neighboring ranch's cows, so watch your step there! AT&T signal was very strong and fast. There's WiFi available at the office but we couldn't receive it at our site so I can't report on speed. There's not much in the way of stores nearby. The staff we interacted with was friendly.

This is a pretty huge campground but it was surprisingly nearly full the weekend we visited in February 2017. It looks and feels new and clean, from the long concrete parking pads to the dump/fill station. Sites have lots of trees, cactus, and shrubs but it is the desert so there isn't much privacy. The generator hours are a good compromise... just two hours in the morning and two in the evening gives enough time to recharge batteries without disturbing the silence during the whole day. Although the sites in our area said they're for "up to 40-foot RV" you could easily fit a 45 foot motorhome with tow car in the sites. Sites are sloped downward so we had to put a couple blocks under our front tires to get level. There are a couple of dog-friendly trails near the campground, plus the Alamo Canyon trail (about 7 miles away) is also dog-friendly starting this year. There are lots of ranger programs and we enjoyed the ranger-led hike we attended. Our Verizon had strong signal and fast data. AT&T had strong phone signal but no data. Overall we were very impressed with this National Monument campground!

This was our second time staying overnight in Las Cruces, but our first time at Sunny Acres. We chose it because it's $10 less than the RV Park we stayed at last time. We found the sites at Sunny Acres to be slightly wider than typical "in town" RV parks, which was nice. Our pull-through (#2) was very wide and long and was great for our overnight stay. There are many long-term RVs here but the park and sites are clean and tidy. The free WiFi was too slow to be useful, AT&T had decent signal but was a bit slow, while Verizon was fast. There's a fenced dog park but it's rather small for larger dogs like our Labrador Retriever. Apart from the campground we didn't see any other good places to for longer dog walks, so if we were staying more than one night we'd need to figure that out. The park is a few miles off I-10, so it's not the most convenient place for an overnight stay, but it worked for us. Staff was friendly and helpful. We'd consider staying here again.

This was a perfectly good place for an overnight stop while crossing Texas, and based on the number of rigs we saw arriving in the afternoon and leaving in the morning, overnight seems to be how long most visitors stay. We made a reservation in advance just in case, and it turned out to be a good thing as the park was full that night. The park, a former KOA, is a typical RV park with fairly close rows of gravel pull-throughs, but with enough trees to break up the monotony. Our pull-through was just long enough for our motorhome and tow car, but the sewer was all the way at the back of the site and we couldn't reach it even with our sewer hose extension. The WiFi worked, but slowly, when we first arrived, but by evening it was unusable. AT&T and Verizon had good signal, but AT&T data was extremely slow (overloaded tower maybe) while Verizon was fast. There's a good-sized dog park. Despite being very close to I-10 there was very little highway noise, at least from our site. We'd definitely stop here again for an overnighter.

A beautiful state park with large semi-private sites, nice trails, and close to "civilization". We stayed for two weeks (you'll have to make reservations early, as the park fills up on weekends) and enjoyed the park. Since the park entry fee is $6 per person per day, we purchased the $70 TX annual parks pass, which also included 50% off one night of our stay ($12 off). We stayed in the 50-amp loop which only has around 10 sites; the rest of the campground is 30-amp only. You choose your site when you arrive (when we checked in they suggested a site for us, but we ended up choosing a different one). Most sites (pull-throughs and back-ins) look like they could handle big rigs, but sites are not level at all and could be a challenge for longer rigs. Our site had great privacy but we needed lots of leveling blocks under our back wheels and jacks. The various campground loops are big enough for enjoyable dog walks, plus there are many trails around the campground and the rest of the park. Upper Falls is easy to get to via a paved trail, but dogs aren't allowed in the water. However several of the longer hiking trails require crossing the river at Lower Falls, so getting wet there is unavoidable (bring water shoes or extra socks). Our only complaint about the park is that the water at the showers was luke warm at best, but more often was uncomfortably cool. We gave up and took navy showers in our rig instead and visited the dump station halfway through our stay. While the park is close to lots of stores and restaurants, the park entrance is on the far side, so it does take 10-15 minutes to get anywhere, exiting the park and then driving all the way around it. We loved the seclusion and natural feel of the park, and will definitely return.

For an "in-town" RV park, Katy Lake is a great choice. We were in Katy to visit a friend who lives 5-10 minutes from the RV park, so the location was perfect for us. We're not fans of crowded RV parks with lots of sites crammed together, but we knew what we were getting into so I can't really complain. There's enough room to open your awning without hitting your neighbor, but not much more room than that. Our pull-through had a paved car parking pad next to the RV, so with our car next to us we had very little camping space (not unusual for a park like this). The $39 per night weekly rate for full hookups right in Katy close to everything is a good deal. Right outside the RV park is every store you could need, in the typical suburban never-ending strip mall frenzy. There is a very nice 1/2 mile paved path around the lake, and a nice fenced dog park that's bigger than most, but apart from that there's no good place nearby for longer dog walks. The WiFi worked intermittently and was usually too slow to be useful to us. Verizon and AT&T both worked great. The RV park entrance on Morton Rd. is quite uneven, so you may want to take the turn slowly to prevent dishes from flying out of cabinets. The park is gated and you need to pay a $50 refundable deposit for the remote gate opener. They also give you a code to get in with the keypad near the gate, but there is no way to get out without the opener! There's no keypad inside the park, and the gate does not automatically open when you approach from inside. One morning (before the office opened) the gate was apparently malfunctioning and we couldn't get out of the park--no remotes would open it. Eventually some other stuck RVers manually pulled the gates open so we could all get out. Due to the great location and reasonable price, we'd return here.

We only stayed overnight so didn't get to experience much. The park was very convenient to I-12, but far enough that it was quiet. Our pull-through was long enough and level enough that we didn't need to unhook our car for the night, which was nice. Sites were average width for an RV park, i.e. pretty close together. There was a nice sidewalk around much of the lake, which made for a great place to walk our dog. Since the park is pretty small, we likely would have looked outside the RV park for dog walks if we were staying for more than the one night. AT&T and Verizon worked very well. We found it very convenient for an overnight stop, and would stay here again.

One of the most impressive things about Henderson Beach State Park is the privacy of the camp sites. Sites are spacious and surrounded by trees and dense shrubs. Our back-in site had excellent privacy and space, and many of the pull-throughs were well over 100 feet long. Although there was no sewer at our site, our stay was short enough that it wasn't a problem for us. You can hear the surf breaking, but can't see the water from the camp sites. Just outside the campground is a Walmart, lots of restaurants, shopping, etc. The gate is closed at night but we were given a code to open it after hours. Unfortunately, county law prohibits dogs on the beach, but there was plenty of room to walk our dog in the campground area. There was free WiFi that worked pretty well, and both Verizon and AT&T had strong service. We'd definitely return here.

This was a great campground for an overnight stay, especially with the Passport America rate. It would be pretty nice for a longer stay in the area as well. It's far enough away from the interstate to be very quiet, but close enough to be convenient. The entire campground is heavily wooded and feels rustic but clean. Some of the sites are rather close together, but others are larger and have decent spacing. It looks like there are many long-term residents but their lots are clean and attractive unlike some other RV parks. Our site was level, and we had good AT&T and Verizon signal, but the campground WiFi was extremely slow. The campground is large enough that we had plenty of places to walk our dog. There is a fenced dog run but it's tiny and only suitable for the smallest of dogs. We'd return here.

This RV park is right along I-75 which makes it convenient for an overnight stay, but a bit noisy. While we have no real complaints about the park, there's also nothing really memorable about the RV park to differentiate it. There are many RVs around the outside that appear to be full time residents, and a large grassy pull-through area in the middle which is used for short-term visitors. As overnight visitors arrived, the campground staggered them every-other-site so we all had a bit more space between us which was thoughtful. Unfortunately our pull-through site was low in the back (too low for our motorhome's jacks to compensate for), so we had to spend some time driving our rear wheels up onto blocks so that we could get level for the night. AT&T and Verizon both worked fine. Check-in was easy and friendly. As an overnight stop it's easy and convenient and we'd likely stay again. We likely wouldn't stay for more than a night or two.

Twin Lakes is about 10 minutes north of Alpharetta so it's in a convenient location for visiting that area (we were there to visit friends). There's a great supermarket (Ingles) just a mile or so away. Access to the park is down a narrow local road but it's not far so wasn't a major issue. The park itself is in a pretty, scenic location, but the sites themselves are problematic. If you're able to get a premium site (we weren't, they were all taken, even though we made our reservation over a month in advance), you'll have a huge wooded site, possibly shared with another RV, tiered along a very steep hill. The standard sites, only $5 cheaper, are tightly packed in a dead-end gravel parking lot (a trailer that came in after us spent 15 minutes making a 20-point turn trying to get backed into their site at the end of the lot). The other odd thing about our lot was that the water spigot was embedded in the ground, rather than on a post, making it difficult (and wet and muddy) to hook up the water. We paid $30/night, and the rate goes up to $35 for 2017, no credit cards accepted. The WiFi worked decently well when we could get connected, but there were plenty of times it refused to connect. Apart from the disappointment of the site, the area is pretty and quiet, and there's a short loop trail around one of the lakes which we walked our dog on daily (it requires some rock-hopping over a stream). Overall it's a decent home base for a local visit but if we return it'll be just for a few days to visit friends again (unless a premium site is available, in which case we might stay a little longer).

We needed a nice place to stay during a trip south on I-95, and with not many options, this seemed to have the best reviews. It was OK, but not great for an overnighter. It's a 10-minute drive from I-95, and the road to the campground is 2+ miles of very narrow, hilly, winding country road... a couple times we were sure we would either scrape against oncoming vehicles or drop our right wheels off onto the shoulder/ditch. The road is too just narrow for today's big rigs. We had one bar of Verizon but were not able to get any data to work, and one bar of AT&T (4G) which worked intermittently. The campground WiFi worked decently well, but it's worth noting the campground was 3/4 empty when we were there. It's a very rustic campground with gravel roads and sites. Sites are typical KOA size... not especially large, but not right on top of each other. Check-in was very friendly and efficient, and the camp store was larger than usual. While the campground itself was nice, in the future we will likely look elsewhere due to the narrow access road and lack of cell signal here.

This is the fourth campground / RV Park we've stayed at in the DC area. $51 for an electric only site is expensive even for this area. The campground's D loop is the only one with electric service, and has water spigots along the road every few sites. This loop has some sites that can handle big rigs, but some sites are only suitable for small RVs. Most sites are unlevel; we needed three wood blocks under each of our rear wheels and more under our jacks, so you probably won't be able to rely just on your jacks. The campground is heavily wooded which is lovely and gives lots of privacy between sites, but also means it's dark inside the RV even during bright sunny days. Interior roads are heavily wooded and some tree scraping was unavoidable. There are a few walking trails through the woods which were great for walking our dog. There are two bath houses, one in E loop and one in C loop. They were reasonably clean but full of webs and bugs in the corners. While the water was hot and pressure was good, the shower stalls were tiny with no shelves to hold your toiletries, and share a changing room separated from the rest of the bathroom by a curtain. There's an electronic gate at the entrance to the park, and when you check in they give you the code to get in any time. AT&T and Verizon both worked fine. Access to I-270 is very quick and easy. We'll likely stay here again because it's the closest park for visiting family. If it wasn't for the very unlevel sites and high price, we'd give Little Bennett a higher rating.

I should have read the previous reviews before arriving! Like others, we got to the KOA entrance gate in our motorhome with tow car and saw the sign saying not to enter until checking in at the Days Inn Hotel. Unable to back up or turn around, we did a loop through the campground and back to the hotel parking lot. There are no RV check-in lanes and the hotel parking lot was fairly crowded, so we just pulled across two parking spaces and blocked one of the aisles while checking in. Also as others have mentioned, although the KOA is not far from the interstate, the road to get there is steep and has some sharp turns. Inside the campground the roads are narrow with some steep hills possible (depending on which section you're in). Our site was sloped so we could not get our motorhome level with just the jacks and had to add some blocks under our low wheels. The sites are mostly pull-throughs, with a few back-ins. Our pull-through was plenty long and wider than average for a KOA, with a gravel pad, grass lawn, picnic table, and BBQ grill. The area was pretty with lots of trees and hills. We were only there for one night but never saw any KOA staff in the campground. They did have free WiFi that was slow but worked fine for basic usage. Verizon and AT&T both had strong service. We might use this KOA again as an overnight stop but will first look into what other options are available.
