Santa Rosa Campground & RV Park, Santa Rosa, New Mexico

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

Santa Rosa Campground is a shady oasis in a fairly desolate part of New Mexico. We used this park for an overnight stop, and were quite pleased to find a fairly level full-service pull-through which gave us an easy "in and out" without having to unhook our toad. Cable TV worked fine. We used our own Verizon Internet rather than trying the park service. Verizon worked ok in that area, but did get pretty slow a time or two. This park does not recycle. There is a restaurant on site that will deliver to individual rigs if requested. We didn't order any food, but it certainly smelled good! We camped at Santa Rosa Campground & RV Park in a Motorhome.

Elk City / Clinton KOA, Canute, Oklahoma

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $41.00
Overall Rating:      

Elk City KOA was a good overnight stop for us. We were able to keep our tow car attached for a quick getaway in the morning. Sites are shady, so care must be taken to maneuver around trees. Our assigned site (56) wins the prize for "most level" we've parked in this summer! The cable TV was non-functional during our stay. We were able to pick up about 10 broadcast channels, but opted not to watch. We did not utilize the park WiFi. GPS units will definitely indicate campers should get off I-40 at the wrong exit. Remember what the owner says, because he is right: "Get off at Exit 50 -- we are the only thing here, you can't miss us". Elk City KOA features a small restaurant with offerings for both breakfast and dinner. The menu includes breakfast pizza, burritos and biscuits, as well as regular pizza, wings, pulled pork sandwiches and more. We did not eat there, so cannot review the cooking. This park does not recycle. We were pleasantly surprised to find a mowed path from the back of the park which led to a local lake. We camped at Elk City / Clinton KOA in a Motorhome.

RV Express RV Park, Marshfield, Missouri

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

Express 66 is a very convenient overnight stop when you are trying to make miles. Not much else with decent reviews is available in the area. Express 66 is located mere feet from Interstate 44, but, buttoned up with AC running in our motorhome, traffic noise from the entrance ramp did not bother us. This park features nice concrete pads, but our site was a bit low in front, necessitating use of blocks under our front tires. To be fair, we pulled far forward to enable us to leave our tow car hooked up for a quick departure the next morning. Our cable TV connection did not work. We didn't use park WiFi. Check in was a little confusing, as the office building appears to be shared by several businesses. Once located, staff members were quite enthusiastic. We camped at RV Express RV Park in a Motorhome.

Hollywood Casino Hotel & RV Resort, Joliet, Illinois

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

This campground is located behind the Hollywood Casino Hotel and across a large parking lot from the Casino itself. The setup is pretty basic, with only electricity and water provided, but the sites are nice and big with lush grass and trees around the edges. There is a dump station available on the other side of the hotel. Check in for the campground is done at the hotel desk. Key cards for the shower facilities in the campground are provided there, and it is explained that campers are welcome to partake of the free daily breakfast at the hotel. Breakfast offerings during our stay included scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, breakfast burritos, cheese blintzes, hot oatmeal, pastries and fruit. Cable TV was not offered and we didn't even try the park WiFi, opting to use our own Verizon service instead. Broadcast TV was quite acceptable. We had to cut our stay short due to a family emergency, and would like to give the staff a special note of thanks for the sympathetic and efficient way this was handled. This was our second visit to Hollywood RV Park. We would be happy to return. We camped at Hollywood Casino Hotel & RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Sauder Village Campground, Archbold, Ohio

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $37.00
Overall Rating:      

This campground worked well as a two-day stay to give us a bit of a break from driving cross-country. There was plenty of room in the large parking lot shared between the Sauder Heritage Inn and Sauder Village complex to park a big RV and check in at the hotel. Entrance to the campground is across a small bridge located at the back of the parking lot. The roads accessing the two campground sections are paved and very comfortably wide. We were not able to easily sign onto the campground WiFi, so just used our own Verizon service, which worked fine. There is a gravel path around the "Little Lake Erie" pond, and another straight walking path into town. A number of campers, both young and old, were making use of these paths for walking, jogging, biking and dog walking. We camped at Sauder Village Campground in a Motorhome.

We enjoyed spending our extra day at the historic Sauder Village. Many costumed characters demonstrate crafts such as spinning, weaving, basket-making, blacksmithing, etc. We especially enjoyed watching a crew of horses and men plowing a field to get it ready for planting. The Rails to Trails Wabash Cannonball Trail is nearby.

Erie KOA, Mckean, Pennsylvania

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

Erie KOA is probably a lovely park to stay in during the summer season if you have young children and an RV smaller than 40 feet, or wanted to make use of their cool-looking teepees or basic cabins for rent. We, however, have a 40 foot motorhome and found the park layout extremely difficult to navigate. We were warned not to attempt exiting past the dump station, as it apparently is quite hard on RV owners who risk it. Our assigned site was angled exactly the wrong way to follow the approved exit path, but with some maneuvering we were able to get our rig pointed the right way and our tow car hooked up. Even though our space was a pull-thru, it would have been impossible to leave the car hooked up. This park does recycle. The dumpster for that purpose is located behind a fence at the back of the property. Cable TV worked fine and we were able to get broadcast channels from nearby Erie. We did not use the park WiFi. Our Verizon service worked well. Sabo's Pizza will deliver to the park, but is not admitted past the entrance, thus requiring campers to meet the delivery vehicle there. We camped at Erie KOA in a Motorhome.

Natural Bridge/Watertown KOA (formerly Adirondack - 1000 Islands Campi, Natural Bridge, New York

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $36.00
Overall Rating:      

This park recently became a KOA branded park. It is very wooded. During our stay the fir trees dropped a prodigious number of small needles. Perhaps they are deciduous and do this in the early fall. However, they did cover our car every day, and necessitated a full sweeping of the motorhome roof and awnings before our departure. Our assigned site was spacious, but not particularly level. We ended up using extra blocks under both our front tires and the front jacks. The staff at this park are quite friendly and pro-active. Unfortunately they got a questionable reading on a water system test early in our two week stay. We were promptly informed, and the park provided bottled water for our use until they had several good readings. No cable TV is available, but we were able to get several broadcast channels. WiFi worked ok during the day and when the park was not full. We opted to switch back and forth between the park service and our own Verizon. We camped at Natural Bridge/Watertown KOA (formerly Adirondack - 1000 Islands Campi in a Motorhome.

North Pole Resorts, Wilmington, New York

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $44.00
Overall Rating:      

The North Pole is an interesting Christmas-themed resort which features two campgrounds, across the road from each other, and a motel. We stayed one month at the campground next to the West Branch of the Ausable River. Our inflatable double kayak really enjoyed this stay. We could have launched from the end of our camp road, but found the public park next door had even more convenient access and facilities. The North Pole had fairly recently upgraded its WiFi system, and we were able to utilize it almost exclusively during our stay. Cable TV also worked well. This park offers a pretty well-equipped camp store with adjacent liquor store. Beer growlers can be refilled at the camp store, and the park advertises the largest selection of craft beer in the area. A mini-golf course is located between the campground we stayed in and the motel. There is a charge for the course. Clubs and balls are obtained at the camp store. The park also offers a rec hall with ping pong and a pool table, along with other arcade games. The park swimming pool is kept locked when not in use, so an attendant must be flagged down to open it if needed. A very nice playground is across from the pool. Our assigned site had a nice wooded area at the rear, which was a quite pleasant spot to read or enjoy happy hour. As required in New York, this park recycles. We camped at North Pole Resorts in a Motorhome.

Ledgeview RV Park, Lake George, New York

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $51.00
Overall Rating:      

Ledgeview is a very nice wooded park with some interesting amenities. The large sites are gravel and grass. We did find it rather difficult to keep the small gravel bits out of our RV during our month-long stay. Besides the pool, which had plenty of lounge chairs provided, Ledgeview features a rec center with ping-pong and pool tables, and at least 10 other unique arcade style games. A piano with music and a selection of adult and children's book are also housed in the rec center. In a different area of the park is a well-equipped playground, shuffleboard courts, and a transportable minigolf course set up under a covered pavilion. Tricycles for all ages are available for rent. The park is very well-maintained by an attentive and friendly staff. WiFi worked ok, but we got better and faster service through our own Verizon service. The park cable TV provided a large selection of channels. This park is expanding, so there was some heavy machinery working on the new sites during our stay. We did not find the noise excessive. We camped at Ledgeview RV Park in a Motorhome.

The very nice, paved, Warren County Bikeway was easy to access. We rode our bikes and jogged on it frequently. We even used it to ride our bikes into town to tour an old fort and a French/Indian war battleground. We also found a nice free parking lot with a canoe/kayak launch and a portable bathroom next to the nearby Docksider restaurant. We paddled our double kayak from there several times, and enjoyed dinner at the restaurant after a late afternoon paddle one day.

Clute Park Campground (W W Clute Memorial Park), Watkins Glen, New York

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $47.00
Overall Rating:      

Memorial Park is very conveniently located in the tourist town of Watkins Glen, NY. We were able to walk or ride our bikes to many local attractions (including a WalMart with grocery next door), and could easily reach some world-class tourist spots by car. We stayed two weeks and could have entertained ourselves for another week. This park is located on a canal and across the road from Seneca Lake, so boating/fishing are popular passtimes for guests. Our assigned back-in site proved a bit unlevel, so we had to use additional blocks. Staff are friendly, and this park does recycle. Cable TV service is excellent, however we opted to use our own Verison Internet service. We camped at Clute Park Campground (W W Clute Memorial Park) in a Motorhome.

Maple Lakes Recreational Park, Seville, Ohio

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $42.00
Overall Rating:      

Maple Lake Campground appears to be mostly used by regular seasonal residents. We stayed here a week while visiting relatives in the area. While we enjoyed our stay and expect to return.

There was some awkwardness with check-in and departure. Perhaps our notes here can be helpful to other guests arriving for the first time. Our GPS had no trouble with the address, but it should be noted that the Maple Lake entrance sign can only be seen from one direction off Blake Road. The turn can be very hard to find when coming from the other direction, especially at night. Barrier lift gates at the entrance prevent unauthorized entry, but there is no place to check in here. Arrows indicate registration is ahead, but the office/store is too far to walk easily. Best practice would be to use the call box there to have the gate lifted and then drive (with tow car still attached) to the office.

There is a rather steep hill with some serious potholes, but we didn't have much trouble navigating those. A $10 deposit is required to obtain a gate pass. We were unable to return ours upon departure at 8:40 am Monday because the office did not open until 10 am. We hope to return ours by mail, but would suggest guests reading this try to turn theirs in the day before departure if possible.

WiFi was only free at the office, so we used our own Verizon service. It worked OK. Our pull-through site was quite long, but required extra blocks for leveling. We camped at Maple Lakes Recreational Park in a Motorhome.

Natchez Trace State Park / Pin Oak Lake, Lexington, Tennessee

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

The RV park at Natchez Trace State Park is very nice, with lots of greenery, a beautiful lake, and sites large enough to accommodate even the biggest rigs. Sites are gravel and seemed fairly level. Guests staying in the park are not required to obtain special passes for kayaks or canoes. We visited before the big Memorial Day weekend, when most park programs seem to start for the summer. There was no attendant to check in with, but signs directed us to go directly to our site, which had been assigned when we made our reservation online.

Birding is a fun activity at this park, but beware of energetic birds trying to build nests on your RV! We were only here three nights, but found an almost-complete nest up under our living room slide.

Internet was very problematic. We needed an external antennae and booster to get any service through Verizon. Water pressure was pretty high. Definitely use a water regulator. We camped at Natchez Trace State Park / Pin Oak Lake in a Motorhome.

Fort Stockton RV Park, Fort Stockton, Texas

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $34.00
Overall Rating:      

This was a repeat visit for us, as the park is conveniently on the route we regularly travel from Arizona to Texas. Fort Stockton RV Park has some nice pull-throughs for overnighters wanting to leave a tow car attached. Roadrunner Cafe on-site restaurant offers inexpensive dinner and breakfast. (We opted for the chicken fried steak plate). The cable TV service worked well and park Internet was OK. We would happily stay here again. Note: apparently some GPS systems get confused with this address. Ours was sure the interstate access bridge was not load rated for our rig, even though it was fine. The park sends good directions with its email confirmation letter. Basically the instruction is to take Exit 264 at Warnock Road. We camped at Fort Stockton RV Park in a Motorhome.
