Maverick Ranch RV Park at Lajitas Resort, Lajitas, Texas

Date of Stay: December, 2014 - $35.00
Overall Rating:      

Lajitas is about an hour west of Big Bend National Park and about 20 minutes from Terlingua. Big Bend Ranch State Park entrance is only about 5 minutes away. Lajitas was bought by a resort so it really isn't a town. It has a couple of restaurants, boutique shops, general store, small gas station, and a golf course. Don't expect to find a grocery store nearby. We had a pretty large site since we were at the end of a row. The other spaces look large but you do share camping sides with your neighbor. The roads inside the park are wide an easy to maneuver. This is a dark night area so they ask all outside lights are turned off by 9pm.

Wifi was adequate. There is no ATT or Verizon, only roaming available.

The club house has a nice community room, tv area, and clean bathrooms. The swimming pool looked nice and clean but as it was december, we did not try it. The office staff is friendly and very helpful. The campers are also very friendly. The RV Park is clean and feels very open. There is not a lot of trees but it may get pretty hot in the summer. We did see a coyote and javelina while we were here.

We would stay here again. We camped at Maverick Ranch RV Park at Lajitas Resort in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

There is a gravel road behind the park that leads to a housing development area which is great for walking dogs. The tent area is also another great spot for walking the dogs. There are also trails that lead to the butte nearby if you want to do a little hiking. The Big Bend Ranch State Park allows dogs on trails only leading away from the state park. Trails heading towards the Rio Grande are ok.

Rio Grande Village Campground--No Hookups (NPS Campground), Big Bend National Park, Texas

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

This part of the campground has no hookups but also has two areas, one for generator use (8am-8pm) and no generator use. We were in the generator area so we were able to charge our batteries during the day. It's a beautiful campground, reminiscent of a state park with lots of space between sites. Our site had a couple of trees but no leaves since it was december. Pets are not allowed on any of the trails in Big Bend, but they are allowed anywhere a car can go. Since the campground is pretty large, there is a lot of space to walk them without feeling restricted. There are dumpsters throughout the park, making it easy to throw away trash. They also recycle at the entrance to the campground. There is a water/dump site about 0.25 miles before the entrance to the campground. There are bathrooms at the campground, but no showers. The store which is about 0.5 miles away has pay showers available. The bathrooms also have a sink for washing dishes. Even without hookups, we really liked this campground. It's large, quiet, and the view is incredible. We saw lots of roadrunners and a bobcat in the campground. The park hosts here are super-friendly. At night, the lack of light pollution makes this a fantastic place to view the stars. We would stay here again. We camped at Rio Grande Village Campground--No Hookups (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Take the Rio Grande Nature Trail, less than a mile long, about 30 minutes before sunset. Watching the sun set over the canyon is quite beautiful. In the winter (we were there in december), the weather changes drastically. Mornings start at around 40 degrees, but warms up to 65-75 by afternoon. Dress in layers.

Hidden Valley RV Park, Del Rio, Texas

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

We only stayed here two nights on our way to Big Bend National Park. The RV park is a little out of the way in a residential area, whereas most others in the area are right off the highway. We prefer the privacy and quiet, so this worked very well for us, and the residential area offered plenty of places to walk our dogs. The RV park is very pretty, with lots of trees and grass. Campsites are pretty large, have concrete patios (formerly mobile home pads), picnic tables, and some sites have privacy fences. The owner was very friendly and helpful, and the neighbors we met were nice. The main road into the park is closed for construction, so the owner met us in town and guided us in since our GPS would take us the wrong way. Water pressure was very high, so be sure to use a water regulator. Cable TV is available but the hookup was far back in the site and our cable wasn't long enough to reach. There is WiFi available but we couldn't receive it from our site near the front of the park. We'd definitely stay here again, hopefully for a longer visit. We camped at Hidden Valley RV Park in a Motorhome.

Pecan Park Riverside RV , San Marcos, Texas

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

We planned to stay closer to Austin, but this was the only park in the area with availability during Thanksgiving week. We're glad we ended up here, and we extended our stay to three weeks instead of one. The park is pretty, the location is secluded and quiet, and yet it's a 5-10 minute drive to town for Walmart, restaurants, gas, etc. It's about 30 minutes to the southern parts of Austin. We were put in a new section that had just opened a week or two earlier, so we had no patio, picnic table, etc. and the grass was still trying to grow in from seed so it was a bit muddy when it rained, but we had most of the section to ourselves which was nice. All the staff we worked with were very friendly and helpful, and all the other residents we ran into were friendly too. The dog park is one of the larger ones we've seen at an RV Park, and our young Lab loved playing ball there twice a day. The river was too shallow and rocky for our dog to swim or play in. Our rate reflects a 50% "fall into winter" discount advertised on the park's web site for November through February. We'd stay here again. We camped at Pecan Park Riverside RV in a Motorhome.

Houston West RV Park, Brookshire, Texas

Date of Stay: November, 2014 - $35.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed for two nights while visiting a friend in nearby Katy, TX. The sites are pretty small and close together...too close for our liking. The park is very close to I-10, but because it is up on a hill, most of the highway noise is muffled, unless you're in the first couple rows closest to the highway. Although the sites were small and the park was completely full, everything was fairly clean and tidy.

We didn't use any of the amenities, so can't comment on those. There are some grassy areas and a pond which we walked around with our dogs a few times (dogs are not permitted in the pond).

We'd consider staying here again, but would first look for someplace else nearby with larger sites. We camped at Houston West RV Park in a Motorhome.

Boomtown Waterpark RV & Fishing Resort, Rose City, Texas

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

We only stayed here overnight on our way to Houston. The location is convenient in that it's right on I-10, but the traffic noise from the highway is extreme, including all night. The RV park is literally at the end of the exit ramp from I-10. Sites are a mix of grass and sand and gravel.

Most of the park is occupied by permanent or long-term trailers, some clean, some not-so-clean. You can go fishing along the lake, but I wouldn't call it relaxing, again because of the proximity to the interstate. The staff was very friendly and accommodating.

Although the price was right, we would likely not stay here again due to the highway noise. We camped at Boomtown Waterpark RV & Fishing Resort in a Motorhome.

New Orleans West KOA, River Ridge, Louisiana

Date of Stay: November, 2014 - $43.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed here for 11 nights while we visited New Orleans. It's about 20 minutes from the French Quarter and KOA provides a free shuttle at 9am and 5pm to the city and at 5:45pm back to the campground.

The staff are extremely friendly. The sites are a little narrow, but plenty long. We had no trouble fitting our 37' RV and toad with plenty of space. The sites have concrete patios and picnic tables. There is a 'back yard' of grass behind the sites which provides a little extra space, and an available dog park. We didn't have much luck with their WiFi, it was either slow or difficult to get on, but we had great signal with Verizon and AT&T for our hotspot.

There are trains that pass through the area regularly, including at night. The train conductors are liberal with their horns, so it might be tough for a light sleeper.

We did like this campground and would stay here again if we were in the area. It's a good compromise of price and location, much cheaper than staying in the French Quarter, but still easy and fast to get into town for sight seeing. We camped at New Orleans West KOA in a Motorhome.

Ho-Hum RV Park, Carrabelle, Florida

Date of Stay: November, 2014 - $38.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed here for a week, the price reflects the Good Sam discount. It is a great little park right on the water. The ocean (actually bay) front spots are very scenic. If you are a MH, you pull into the spot, if you are a 5er or trailer, you can back into the spot. The park is clean, I saw someone almost everyday raking up the stray pine needles and cones that fell to the ground, and the staff is very friendly. The sites are average in size, and all the amenities worked fine. The beach extends at least a mile into undeveloped areas where people let their dogs play off leash in the water and sand. Everyone is very friendly and respectful of others here. It is a quiet and relaxed park without any resort-like amenities. Carrabelle doesn't have a lot of things to do in the area so you have to drive further to find entertainment if you are not there to fish. We would stay here again if we were in the area. We camped at Ho-Hum RV Park in a Motorhome.

Since the campground is pretty small, there isn't a lot of space to walk the dogs. The beach is a nice spot, but there is also a neighborhood across the street. The streets are wide and quiet and a good place to take dogs. Site #42 is right next to the pier so we had a fair number of people cutting through our campsite to get to the pier.

Lake Rousseau RV Park & Fishing Resort, Crystal River, Florida

Date of Stay: October, 2014 - $28.00
Overall Rating:      

This campground is a bit off the beaten track. It's on the north side of Crystal River so it takes 15 minutes to get to most of the things in Crystal River, and about 25 minutes to Homosassa Springs. It is a quiet campground with very friendly residents. Everyone we met were very kind and always sprung up a conversation. A fair number are permanent residents and there are also a large number of trailer homes but they look cared for. The campground felt very safe and rather homey. Lake Rousseau offers free wifi through tengo, you have to get a coupon for each device. We didn't use their wifi and simply used our hotspot. The signal for AT&T is pretty weak in that area, and Verizon LTE was weak but acceptable. We used our booster for better signal. The sites are some gravel, sand, and grass. Mostly level with the utilities behind the coach. There are a lot of old trees so many of the sites are fairly shaded. Our site (33) is nice and large, but the one right next to us had almost no camping area. The campground is situated right on Lake Rousseau with a boat launch area. The lake is not dog-friendly (alligators are present) but very pretty to look at. It also had a couple of dog park areas you could use. They have a swimming pool but we didn't use it. This is a good place if you're looking for quiet and perhaps some fishing. It's not a resort and there are not a lot of activities to do. The campground is quiet, pretty, and well-tended but a bit further away from town. We'd stay there again. We camped at Lake Rousseau RV Park & Fishing Resort in a Motorhome.

Bill Frederick Park at Turkey Lake, Orlando, Florida

Date of Stay: October, 2014 - $23.00
Overall Rating:      

Full hookup sites and beautiful park right in the city of Orlando. It's only about 5 miles away from Universal Parks with tons of shopping centers nearby. The park is quiet with a pool (closed when we were there), fishing pier, picnic areas, Frisbee golf, and nature trails. It is very dog friendly. All picnic areas are off-limits for pets but there are so many other areas that it isn't an issue. The sites are very shady with a fair bit of space between neighbors. The length of the sites are a bit short, we have a 37' MH and we had to park our car partly in the camping area so we didn't stick out in the road. The park does not have Wi-Fi but we had good signal with AT&T and Verizon. The roads in the park are fine but the road in the RV area is a bit narrow and winding so you do need to take it pretty slow. With all the trees and water nearby, there were a fair share of mosquitoes so we did need bug repellent. Otherwise it's a fantastic place to stay. We would stay here again if we were in the area. We camped at Bill Frederick Park at Turkey Lake in a Motorhome.

Fleetwood RV Park, Jacksonville, Florida

Date of Stay: September, 2014 - $35.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed here for 3 nights. It's right in Jacksonville so it was close to where we needed to be. The majority of the park is either mobile homes or long-term RVers. The front of the park is for the short-termers. The staff is very friendly and all the amenities worked fine. The lots are pretty small so our neighbor's awning was almost touching our slides. Fleetwood advertises free wifi but during our stay it was unusable. Either it would not let us on or else once on, it wouldn't let us do much surfing before it stopped working. The RV park is located right off a main road so there is a fair bit of road noise and there's a train that passes nearby in the early mornings. If you're a light sleeper the noise may bother you. We'd probably stay at a different rv park a little further from Jacksonville the next time we're in the area. We camped at Fleetwood RV Park in a Motorhome.

Skidaway Island State Park, Savannah, Georgia

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

We stayed at Skidaway Island State Park while we were visiting Savannah, it's only around 15 minutes away from downtown. They have REALLY long pull-through sites, which makes it very easy to park your car in front or behind your coach. There is also a fair amount of space between you and your neighbors, plus each site has plenty of trees between you and your neighbor. The park and all the sites are very shady so our coach stayed pretty cool during our stay. It's very peaceful and beautiful with a lot of great trails you can walk, bike, or jog. They are very dog friendly, you can take the dogs on all the trails and roads in the park too. They only just started adding sewer to their sites so only around 10 have full hookups while the rest are water/electric. Our full hookup site was great and everything worked perfectly. The staff is friendly, all the campers are quiet and respectful of each other. There are a lot of mosquitoes here, you need to use insect repellent generously if you don't want to be eaten alive. There is also no wireless available at our site but we got great signal for AT&T and Verizon cellular. There is a one-time $5 park fee for your vehicle (not your RV). It allows you to come in and out of the park at any time. We really did enjoy our stay here and would stay here again. We camped at Skidaway Island State Park in a Motorhome.

Ocean Lakes Family Campground, Myrtle Beach, South Carolina

Date of Stay: September, 2014 - $55.00
Overall Rating:      

Fancy RV resorts aren't really our style, but Ocean Lakes is pretty impressive anyway. It's one of the largest campgrounds in the country, so be prepared for row after row after row of RVs. Most of the campground (the part farther from the beach) is actually leased/rented houses, park models, and permanent mobile homes. RV sites are very wide but short - we have to park our towed car next to our motorhome, not behind it. We could see the ocean from our concrete site, and walked along the beach daily with our dogs (dogs are allowed on the beach off-peak season). Since the park is so huge, you can walk for a couple hours just inside the park, and it's great for casual bicycling too. There were quite a few golf carts roaming around but they weren't a bother at all. There are many resort-style amenities like swimming pools, mini-golf, sports, on-site fast food, laundry, camping store, trash pickup, etc. Just outside the campground are Camping World, Walmart, and other big box stores. The Wi-Fi worked quite well. We camped at Ocean Lakes Family Campground in a Motorhome.

Heritage RV Park, Augusta, Georgia

Date of Stay: September, 2014 - $27.00
Overall Rating:      

This park houses mostly long-term residents, mostly in RVs with a smattering of mobile homes. One section of the park has been recently renovated with new gravel pads (fairly level), concrete patios and curbs, and new grass/sod, and is being used for short-term rentals. It's located in a slightly run-down area about two miles from a more developed area with malls, restaurants, etc. The sites were reasonably sized - not too crowded together, but not exactly spacious either. There are plenty of grassy areas to walk dogs inside the park, but since the park is small we usually walked through nearby neighborhoods. One thing worth mentioning is that the free Wi-Fi worked better than almost any other place we've been - a rare and pleasant surprise in a world where "free WiFi" is almost meaningless. We'd stay here again if we just need a home base near Augusta. Our rate was for a weekly stay plus a few extra days. We camped at Heritage RV Park in a Motorhome.

Jones RV Park, Norcross, Georgia

Date of Stay: August, 2014 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed here as a home base while visiting downtown Atlanta, about a 20 minute drive away. This isn't as much an RV park as it is a long gravel parking lot with hookups, adjacent to a mobile home community. It's in a heavily developed suburb, so there are many stores and restaurants in the immediate area, though the park is tucked away a bit and feels private. The sites are very long but close together, most with no shade and very little grass. There's a grassy area along one side which is good for walking dogs, but there's no good places to walk outside the park since it connects to a busy main road. We had no problems with traffic noise even though it's close to the interstate. We have no complaints about the park - it was reasonably clean, utilities worked, staff was friendly, and the price was great. As a place to park while visiting the city, it was exactly what we needed - just don't expect anything fancy or pretty! We would stay here again if we needed to visit downtown, but if we planned to spend much time at our coach, we'd probably look for someplace a little more attractive. We camped at Jones RV Park in a Motorhome.
