South of the Border, Dillon, South Carolina

Date of Stay: December, 2016 - $32.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed here from August through December and paid a monthly rate of $523.19/month and includes electricity.

This is a hidden treasure mostly used by one-nighters traveling north and south. The campground itself is gated and well maintained. The grounds are kept clean and if you put your garbage out at one of the many garbage receptacles, it will be picked up twice daily.

The roads through the park are not too wide, but navigable for big rigs. Originally, all the sites were backins, but recently, most of the interior sites have been made into spacious pull throughs. Also, on these sites, the electrical boxes have been updated.

There are only two washers and one dryer for the entire campground.

There are some play areas for children, and of course, you have the entire South of the Border experience, as well. The park itself has no amenities such as a pool, but you are allowed access to the indoor and outdoor pool at the South of the Border motel.

When we first arrived, the WiFi worked well enough to stream...and they advertise that it supports streaming. However, after Hurricane Matthew, it did not work as good. But, it is still good enough to do emails and check Facebook, etc....and it is free.

There is no cable TV but you can get several antenna channels out of Florence, Wilmington (NC) and Myrtle Beach.

The park is close to Dillon SC and there are a few restaurants there. There is also a WalMart nearby. If you are looking for a quick meal, the South of the Border complex has a nice steakhouse, The Peddler, and a short order restaurant where you can buy hamburgers and hotdogs, fries, others sandwiches, beer and cola drinks.

The personnel were always helpful.

My only suggestion would be to install more washers and another dryer, and to upgrade the WiFi.

Our stay was pleasant and without a doubt, I would stay here again. We camped at South of the Border in a Travel Trailer.

Harris Village RV Park (Adult Park), Ormond Beach, Florida

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed here on a monthly basis for contract work. Our rate was around 500/month excluding electricity.

Immediately greeted by the owner upon arrival. I had to back into my space, and I do believe it was the tightest space in the park. But the owner was right there beside me, telling me exactly where and how far to turn my wheels to get properly set up.

There are some concrete pads mixed in with grass spots. Ours was grass, but was so level, I did not have to jack up either side of our camper.

I really have nothing bad to say about this place...it is a hidden jewel and I am so glad we found it. It is beside the Iron Horse Saloon frequented by bikers, but we hardly knew they were there.

This park is small and quiet. If you like quiet and no kids, this is the place for you. We camped at Harris Village RV Park (Adult Park) in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

You are just minutes away from one of the prettiest beaches there is and I live at the beach in NC. There are plenty of excellent restaurants nearby. You are a day trip away from Cape Kennedy, Ocala, Orlando, and other tourist spots. You are a day's drive from Key West. We made the trip so I know.

I highly recommend visiting areas in Port Orange, New Smyrna...lots of good fresh seafood there.

Tallahassee RV Park, Tallahassee, Florida

Date of Stay: March, 2016 - $41.00
Overall Rating:

Nice clean park. Roads paved and narrow, but big enough for big rigs. Sites are fairly large... I had room for a 35 foot travel trailer, tow vehicle and another car. Sites not paved... dirt and gravel... fairly level. I did have to jack up up one side to level the trailer.

Free WiFi and cable... WiFi is pretty decent.

I cannot advise on the facilities as we didn't use them... just passin, through and only stayed one night.

Word to the wise. Call ahead on holiday weekends.

Nice and quiet. Would not hesitate to stay again. We camped at Tallahassee RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

If you are looking for a good, home cooked meal, try Ruby's Diner. Pull out of the park, turn left, go under I-10 and it will be on your left.

Indian Point RV Resort, Gautier, Mississippi

Date of Stay: March, 2016 - $27.00
Overall Rating:

Checkin was easy. Lady who checked us in was nice. She's really the only park employee we saw, but then again, we only stayed one night.

Roads are gravel. Site was a nice sized concrete pad. Our site was a pull through. Free cable and free wifi.

Park is about a half mile off the main road, which is nice...it is quiet.

As I said, we only stayed one night...wish we had longer to enjoy this park. Would not hesitate to stay here again. Very reasonable in price. We camped at Indian Point RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Hidden Lake RV Resort, Beaumont, Texas

Date of Stay: March, 2016 - $38.00
Overall Rating:

Nice park. Concrete pad, very level. Plenty of room for my travel trailer to stay hooked up to my truck, and park my other car behind. Check in was quick and efficient...very friendly personnel.

Roads are sufficiently wide enough for one rig to pass.

Close enough to I-10, but far enough away so that you don't hear the noise.
I would not hesitate to stay here again.

One thing to remember. When pulling in from the roadway and making your left turn to park in front of office for checkin, be mindful of the white post on your left and make sure you swing wide enough to miss it. I barely did. We camped at Hidden Lake RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Admiralty RV Resort, San Antonio, Texas

Date of Stay: March, 2016 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

Rate reflects nightly stay. Some sites are more expensive. My rate was 590/month. Check the site for rates. I was here from June/2015 to March 2016.

Check-in was easy. Staff nice and helpful. Escort to your spot to help you get properly parked.

No cable but over 50 channels available on antenna. WiFi provided by TengoNet, not controlled by the park. Please don't blame the park for bad internet...not their fault

There are some rules...but not that bad. But don't be mad if you violate one and get called out...rules are for a reason. Especially pay attention to pet rules, parking on open spots, and going the wrong way on the one-way streets.

There are 2 dog runs. Both are supplied with doggie waste bins and poop scoopers. Use them. Yes, the runs are cleaned each day, but that doesn't take away your responsibility to clean up your dog's poop.

Sites are concrete pads. Roads through the park are paved and are of adequate width. This park has 3 long spots for very large rigs, such as class A's pulling large trailers.

Restrooms and showers are cleaned daily. But bear in mind, people use them throughout the day. If you stay here and use them, and one needs attention, notify the staff.

My stay here was great. I would not hesitate to come back here again. We camped at Admiralty RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Short walk to a bus stop for transportation to downtown San Antonio.
Plenty of shopping nearby.
If you request a lot with a tree, be mindful that along with the tree, comes birds.

The Palms River Resort, Needles, California

Date of Stay: July, 2015 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

Did a one-nighter here. Nice park. Roads paved. Space was gravel. No cable. Gated community consisting of campsites, long term sites, and homes. You can walk down to the Colorado River. I really don't understand the negative comments...we thought it was a very nice place. We camped at The Palms River Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Date of Stay: June, 2015 - $28.00
Overall Rating:

Easy access from I-10. Lots of long term residents. Space was fairly large, with a decent amount of room between each RV. Site was not level, but not a problem for me...I never bank on having a level site. All road and sites are dirt and pea gravel. Check-in was quick. Personnel very nice.

Las Cruces KOA, Las Cruces, New Mexico

Date of Stay: June, 2015 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

One night stay here on our way from Needles Ca, to Ft. Stockton, TX. Nice, clean, and neat campground. Sites were close together, but spacious enough for me to park my 35 foot travel trailer and stay hooked up to the tow vehicle. There were concrete runners for tires to sit on...easy to level. I noticed some complaints about there being no grass for pets. Well, it's the desert...there isn't much (if any) grass anywhere. Dogs will poop on the dirt. Ours do.

Redwood Empire Fairgrounds, Ukiah, California

Date of Stay: June, 2015 - $27.00
Overall Rating:

This is a no frills campground with full hookups. Ran by a camp host. Check in was quick and easy. My rate was 27 dollars a night, Good Sam Discount. The grass needed to be mowed. It's usually quiet, except on Saturday nights during race season... Short track racing at the fairgrounds. The site's are close together... We didn't have room to drop our awning. This campground can accommodate large rigs... Sites are gravel, but fairly level. Our camper is 35 feet plus a tow vehicle and still we could have parked our other car in the space... But they would only allow one vehicle in the spot. Our other car had to be parked outside the gate. I didn't like it, but they would not budge on the rule. The maximum stay is 14 days in a row. There are no reservations... First come first served. It was a decent place for an overnighter. We camped at Redwood Empire Fairgrounds in a Travel Trailer.

Willits KOA, Willits, California

Date of Stay: June, 2015 - $60.00
Overall Rating:

My rate was 775/month and 875/month during the summer months. I stayed from mid-March to mid-June. The nightly rate is 60 dollars a night, during summer months. These are my opinions based on my stay here at the Willits KOA

Pros- This is a well-kept park. The owners and their crew are constantly working, from sunup to sundown, to keep this park in operation. It is clean, and manicured. Garbage pickup outside your camp site, daily. Park provides free WiFi, which actually works pretty well, and cable TV. There are many things geared towards children. This park is primarily family oriented. There are walking trails and a small "catch and release" pond. The store is pretty decent, and well stocked. Bathhouses are clean, and cleaned daily. Most all of the sites have water and electricity. Not all sites have sewer, but if you need a dump, the honey wagon can be arranged for a fee. There is a dump station for residents at the entrance. This park has several amenities, in addition to those already mentioned, to include a heated pool, heated hot tub, splash area for kids and a petting zoo. There is a security gate.

Cons-The cable TV needs to be upgraded...there are 11 channels and those fade in and out. Also, for those who have their mail forwarded to them, there needs to be a better system for providing mail to longer term residents. It is expensive to stay here. There are other parks nearby that are cheaper, just doesn't have the amenities.

Kudos to the ownerfor helping us with the mail situation. She is the one to see if you need something done.

I'd stay here again. We camped at Willits KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Kit Fox RV Park, Patterson, California

Date of Stay: March, 2015 - $38.00
Overall Rating:

Stopped in here for a couple of nights. Grounds are neat and grass was trimmed. Roads through park was paved. Pull throughs are mostly for those staying a very short time. They are very level, but are close together. I had a pull through site and had room enough to park both my tow vehicle and another car. Back in spots are more spacious. Plenty of grassy areas for your dogs to use. I can't advise on the restrooms or laundry...didn't use them. This park is very close to I-5 but there is no highway noise. There are only 13 cable channels, but there are over 50 channels via the antenna.

This park has limited,amenities, but it is a nice place to stay for a night or two. I'd stay again. We camped at Kit Fox RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Orange Grove RV Park, Bakersfield, California

Date of Stay: March, 2015 - $36.00
Overall Rating:

Rate reflects payment with check. Payment made with a card would have been 2 dollars more.

Park is just off CA 58 and close to Bakersfield. We stayed here for 2 nights. Checkin easy. Personnel friendly. Roads are paved. Sites are dirt/gravel and level. Picnic table at each site. Site as large enough to accomodate my 30 foot TT, tow vehicle and our car. Dogs walks everywhere and there is a small, fenced in area to let your dog run lose. The park is lined with orange trees which you can pick from during the season...blossoms smell great. Be careful of bees if you are allergic. I didn't use the bathroom or pool so I can't comment on those. Would definitely stay here again! We camped at Orange Grove RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Country Place RV Park, Conroe, Texas

Date of Stay: August, 2014 - $29.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed here from the last of May to the last part of August, 2014. This qualifies me to make certain statements, pro and con, about this park. This may be lengthy. Bear with me. The park is located in Cut N Shoot, Texas, on the outskirts of Conroe, north of Houston. From the looks of the area, this isn't a Texas showplace town, but it is quaint and has its own uniqueness. Don’t let that detract you from this park. The owners work hard at trying to keep the area maintained. The park has over seventy sites with full hookups. Some sites are concrete pads…some are concrete runners…some are gravel…all the roads are crushed rock/gravel. Our site was concrete runners and level from side to side. The only leveling required was from front to back. The park is divided into basically two section separated by two ponds with a dam/driveway to cross from one side of the park to the other. The front side of the park is more for short time campers…from one or two days, to a week or so. The back side is for long term customers. This portion of the RV park looks a little dated…some of the campers here are several years old. It was very quiet…after 9pm, there were hardly any lights on, except ours. The front portion of the park is newer and is where all the amenities are located. There are plenty of trees so you’re in the shade most all the time…helps with the electricity bill if you are monthly people. This park can accommodate most any sized rig and has 20, 30 and 50 amp hookups. • Check-in was easy. Jan (pronounced “Yan”) and Linda are the owners. Linda checked us in, and Jan escorted us to our site and helped get us positioned on the site. Upon check-in, you are given a map and three pages of rules for the park. The rules aren’t unreasonable. Most of the long term sites are kept up well. • Rates are very reasonable…the website advertises daily, weekly and monthly rates. The monthly rate is advertised as $315.00 per month, plus electricity. We reserved a site and upon arrival, we were told the price was 335.00 per month. When we asked about the advertised rate of $315.00, we were told they were “out of those sites.” We didn't complain as $335.00 is still reasonable, but I was a little taken aback when told that they were out of the advertised “$315 a month + electricity” sites. Make sure the price is what you want before your commit. By the way, our electric bill was around 90 bucks per month. • Pool was well maintained and clean. Pets are not allowed anywhere near the pool. • Country Place is pet friendly. There is no designated place to walk your pets, so anywhere is fair game. All the owners ask is that you pick up after your pets. Be respectful of others. Make sure your pets are treated for fleas….there are sand fleas here. Also, pets must be on a leash. • Meeting room – It’s fairly large, but I really don’t know how many it can accommodate. Parking is ample, but word of warning….do not park on the grass there or anywhere in this park. I’ve noticed some reviews where folks have been chewed out by the owner for parking on the grass. He works hard to keep it manicured as best he can, and there are signs everywhere warning of parking in the grass. If you park in the grass, and the owner gets upset with you, well, you earned that chewing out. • Security – There is a code for just about everything you use here, except the laundry room. There is a gate that is closed at night. There is a code for the gate, as well as the rest of the amenities, except for the laundry room. • Cable TV – There is none. But we did well with our antenna. We were able to pull in about 50 stations (including substations). If you don’t have a dish, and you get bored with antenna TV, there are movies to rent in the office. • Public bathroom/shower – We rarely used them, but they were cleaned every day by personnel. • Landry room – Ample enough for the park. There are three washers and as many dryers. The dryer to your extreme right runs for 90 minutes on your quarters…the others run for 60 minutes. The laundry room has an AC unit and it’s attached to a timer. However, it didn’t work during our stay, or it was cut off from the outside. If you use this for your laundry, I’d recommend you going early in the morning, or late in the evening because if you go during the middle of the day during the summer, it is unbearably hot…no air movement at all. • Internet – Probably my biggest complaint about this park. We had to have it for the wife’s work…not a luxury for us, but a necessity. The internet here is slow. It’s not because of the signal strength, but because of bandwidth. During the day, it was faster…not as many people on it. At night, it was much slower. If you’re planning on using something like a RoKu, or some other streaming device, you can forget about it. • Fishing – As stated before there are actually three ponds that are water runoff fed. These ponds are stocked with fish. You can fish here, but the park operates under the “catch and release” theory. • There is no garbage pickup at your camper. There is a dumpster available for you to place your garbage. It’s a good walk from the back side of the park, but no too bad. I didn’t mind it at all. In summary, my only real complaints were the internet, the difference in rates per month, and the lack of AC in the laundry room. Other than that, our stay was pleasant. Jan and Linda run a pretty tight ship. Jan is constantly working around the park. If you stay here, request to be placed on the front side of the park. We camped at Country Place RV Park in a Travel Trailer.
