Very nice FamCamp with a nice laundry room, clean restrooms and showers, and thoughtful layout. There is a pet area and a non-pet area, so if you don't want to camp near anyone with a pet, you have that option as pets are not allowed in part of the FamCamp. We never saw anyone in the camp office. They are only open for a few hours in the morning and a few hours in the afternoon. They close for lunch in the middle of the day, which is when we arrived, so we self-registered, which was an easy process. No WiFi, no cable. Our AT&T hotspot worked fine and antenna picked up all major networks.

The RV Park is at the back end of the casino parking lot. It has full hookups. No wifi, no cable. Our AT&T hotspot worked fine and antenna picked up the major networks. As previous reviews stated, the lot is lit up like a baseball park. At midnight, our roof vents looked like sunlight was coming through. Redding is so beautiful, an outdoor paradise, with so much potential, but crime is rampant - drugs, theft, vandalism, violence, etc. We experienced it first-hand. Our son's bike was stolen, despite the lit up lot and security cameras everywhere. Casino security reviewed their tapes and confirmed the theft, caught the guy, and turned him over to police. Despite this, we enjoyed our stay.

We stayed at Brandy Creek Campground during the off-season, so we were able to park our 40' 5th wheel sideways taking two sites, which we paid for. It was nice, shaded, near the marina, near the beach, and we completed the Waterfall Challenge while there. There are no hookups. There is a dump station with potable water. No wifi or cable. Our AT&T hotspot worked fine and antenna picked up the major networks. No facilities.

There in NOTHING is Tionesta, so fill up on fuel before you get there. The nearest gas is 30 miles away. Nearest diesel and propane is in Klamath Falls, 60 miles away. There are two RV Parks right next to each other. You have to drive through Hawk's Nest RV Park to get to Eagle's Nest RV Park. It is very quiet, not near any highways or train tracks. Wifi is excellent. No cable, but antenna picks up all major networks. Owners and their helper are very hands on and some of the nicest people you'll meet. When our son's bike was stolen at a campground in Redding, the owner pulled a bike out of her storage shed, fixed a flat tire, adjusted the seat, and brought it over for him to ride around while we were there. There is a little playground and a couple of very friendly goats. This is a great place to visit Lava Beds National Monument (14 miles away), or explore the volcanic mountains surrounding the area.

This is a beautiful small state park with a paved bike trail that connects to provide over 30 miles of riding through the beautiful Rogue Valley alongside the river. Previous reviews are correct in that I-5 is literally across the street. There are also train tracks on the other side of I-5, and even though we did hear the train occasionally, we never heard horns blow. Our HD antenna did not pick up any channels, which surprised me because we've been in way more remote areas and picked up channels. Our AT&T cell service worked fine and we were able to use our hotspot and stream Netflix. A/B loop has a small laundry room for $1.25 washer, .50 dryer. We did not use the bathrooms/showers as there were thousands of earwigs having a family reunion in there.

Pinto Lake is decent. The whole area is expensive and this one is about average. The campground is small, no road noise, no trains. The sites are the narrowest I've ever seen, our awning hangs 1/2 way into the next site and the camp host keeps telling us to put it away. The laundry room is one washer & dryer in the owner's private residence, $5 per load, and good luck getting someone to open the locked gate so you can go to/from the laundry room - we're holding off on laundry until our next campground. They lock the gate to the park at 7pm, which seems really early. We're almost always out until later than that, so we have a key, but it's a pain to deal with the gate. Overall, decent place to stay short-term. I'd probably look elsewhere if we ever came back to this area.

This is one of our favorite campgrounds. There are only six sites with electric, water, picnic tables, and fire pits as well as a playground, volleyball court, horseshoes, and a gorgeous lake surrounded by weeping willow trees. There is tons of wildlife including geese, turkey, hawks, vultures, and raccoons. The dining facility allows everyone to eat there and serves really good food, especially the seafood buffet on Fridays at lunch. The only thing missing is a dump, but there is a dump station down the road. We will definitely stay here again.

This is a beautiful campground atop a hill overlooking the lake. The area is rolling hills full of wildflowers and falcon nests. Antenna is good, Wi-Fi is good when it works. AT&T and Verizon signals fluctuate, hotspots are not reliable. There is absolutely no traffic noise. Wildlife abounds with howling coyotes, turkeys, falcons, gophers, bunnies, and tons of birds. The only disruption are the weekenders that descend on the campground and party all night until they leave on Sunday.

This military RV Park was once a trailer park that was unsuccessful, so they turned it into a RV Park and it seems to be doing well. Each site has a covered carport and a storage shed. The entire park is dirt. The curbs don't have a grade so getting an RV in place and leaving is very abrupt. There is no camp host, so people don't follow the rules - dogs off leash, campfires, even people coming in for the night and leaving the next morning without paying. Check-in is at the lodging office. To get to the RV Park, there is a new dirt road just before housing so you don't have to drive through housing; however, at the time we were here, there was no sign. The only nearby road is the road to the main gate, but there is an unusually high amount of traffic and it is disruptive. It appears as though they are about to construct houses immediately behind the RV Park. Decent place to stay for a few days to see Joshua Tree National Park.

This would be a great little RV Park, tucked away in a canyon, next to a golf course, in a very central location to San Diego and the surrounding areas. However, there are a lot of issues with this place. Sites are concrete and level, but drops off at edge of concrete, making it difficult to use picnic table or chairs. Also, care must be taken to avoid backing up too far, where you won't be able to drop your rear jacks. The camp hosts are constantly circling in their cars, not for security but to find things to confront guests about, such as approved fire heaters, flying kites with kids, guests displaying their RV-based business signs, mobile RV repairmen, etc. We felt like children with all the rules and reprimands. Half the RV Park are active duty military banking BAH. We were here for 4 weeks and the grass was mowed 6 times, starting at around 6am each time - annoying and total FWA. What a shame that a nice RV park with lots of amenities and in a central location is so over-regulated that it sucks the fun out of staying here. We won't be back.

WiFi never worked for us, but our AT&T hotspot worked fine. There is no cable, but antenna picks up plenty of channels. There is no noise from roads, trains, or planes. This is really a nice, quiet place to stay with lots to do and very close to all areas of Tucson.

This is a very nice campground. The main office has a store, a gaming lounge with a pool table, an on-site restaurant, and rooms where exercise classes, language lessons, and movie nights are held. Behind the office is a heated outdoor pool and hot tub, as well as a large laundry room that accepts credit/debit cards, a fitness center, and showers. There is another heated outdoor pool and hot tub at the back of the park. The back-in sites are all gravel and located all along the perimeter of the park. Because they are less expensive, they fill up first. The pull-thrus are more expensive, are mostly gravel but some have really soft grass patches, and are located in all the interior roads. All sites have fruit trees - orange, lemon, or grapefruit. The facilities are immaculate and the grounds are beautiful. A very large dog park is located just outside the gate, which is manned at night. Cable TV and WiFi both work good. They transferred from DirecTV to Dish while we were there and we had several outages after the transfer was complete. The signal will just go out for no reason, so I hope they get this fixed. The worst part about this KOA was its location and the environmental factors. It is in an unsavory part of South Tucson. We heard emergency vehicles every night and the Family Dollar just outside the premises got robbed (with shots fired) multiple times during our stay. Having a police helicopter with searchlights circling overhead looking for suspects for hours at night was not comforting. We joked about how the train horns signaled it was time for bed. And every once in a while, we'd catch a putrid whiff of tar from the industry a mile or so away. Oddly, we never heard planes even though the KOA is located between the airport and an Air Force Base. We stayed for one month at the monthly rate of $750.

Holloman has a small famcamp and there is plenty of room for expansion, which I hope they will do because this is a really nice place and the famcamp's monthly rate is only $300! There is a lot to do in the area. We stayed two weeks and it wasn't enough. There is some road noise from the highway and plane noise from the jets taking off, but nothing unbearable. There is no cable, but antenna works fine. There is no wifi, but our AT&T hotspot worked great.

A tiny, tight RV park located within two blocks of downtown Carlsbad. There are large pecan trees on the property, nice to pick but sounded like hail hitting the roof. There is a nice walkway along the river just outside the park. The owner has a few houses on the property where various family members live and they watch every move being made in the park. The owner says he's an electrician, but we had electrical issues the entire time, this place can't handle 50amp even if they swear they can. When we arrived, there was a 30amp converter plugged in and the owner took it and said the previous tenants had borrowed it, but we wouldn't need it. At 50amp, we kept tripping the breakers, having power surges, and losing power. We finally hooked up our 30amp converter and didn't have any more issues. The owner swore it was us and that our surge protector wasn't working properly, that they "go bad". We had to replace our RV tires while there and the owner referred us to a local tire shop, who came out and did everything at a fair price at our site. It was hard to sleep at night with the trains and the trucks going over the train tracks sounding like a crash every time. Carlsbad is crawling with oil workers and most of the park tenants are oil workers who depart in their loud diesels at 5am. The main office also is a store, that opens really early and must be a local favorite because it gets really busy and loud at 5am. We stayed here for one week and were so ready to leave.

Beautiful, quiet, large RV park right off of Hwy 180 in the middle of Silver City, within two blocks. Tucked back in the high desert terrain, the only neighbor is the large Memory Lane Cemetery, where several important people to Silver City's history are buried, including Billy the Kid's mother. The RV park is so quiet, there is absolutely no road noise. The skies are so dark and clear, great for stargazing. Behind the RV park is open land, great for walking dogs, and there's a trail for walking. The park prides itself in an old western them and does a great job with all the log facilities, old rusty farm equipment, and rustic decorations such as rolled up barbed wire. We saw several white-tail doe deer and a roadrunner on the grounds.
