Sioux Falls KOA, Sioux Falls, South Dakota

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $39.00
Overall Rating:

The park is located within yards of I-90 next to Camping World. Mostly pull thru sites on a large gravel lot. Spacious, easy in and out, hookups were good. WiFi was good. Water pressure good! The bad: The highway noise from the Interstate is non stop and loud! Even inside the RV at night it was still bad. We were on a back row close to the highway and my wife made the remark "you know if one of those tractor trailers ran off the road it could easily wipe out a bunch of RV's" Fortunatly we were only here for 2 nights. This park basically fills up and empties out everyday. We camped at Sioux Falls KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Lake Park Campground, Rapid City, South Dakota

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $62.00
Overall Rating:

This park got good ratings but, we were very disappointed with our site. This is an older family owned park coupled with cabins for rental also. We had a pull through and after we pulled in there was a telephone pole so close I could only extend my awning a short distance. The spacing was very close although there were a couple sights with good spacing. We were here for 11 days. The close by lake and stream was good for my visiting grandson and I got to do some fishing. The trees are so thick there is no chance of a satillite signal but, we were able to get local channels with our antenna. The WiFi was acceptable. Our sight was mostly dirt and some gravel. We did put our rug out to sit on but, it had to be swept because of dirt and rocks blowing on. The trash bins were located on an adjacent street in the cabin areas so it was a long walk to empty trash. This location was good for a base to work from to see all the sites in the area. The visit was OK but, we would never stay here again. We camped at Lake Park Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

USA RV Park, Gallup, New Mexico

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $42.00
Overall Rating:

This was our second time staying here in the last couple of years. There is basically very few choices in this area and as an overnight stop it is good. We were there two nights and virtually half of this campground empties out and refills everyday. The pull through sites are easily in and out. Hook ups were good - there was problems at our site with a couple power surges. The biggest problem we had was the unbeliveable amount of dog "poop" everywhere. The enclosed dog walk area had so much on the ground you could not even walk around. It is beyond me how adults with dogs let their pets poop and not feel the responsibility to clean up - on top of that it is unhealthy - worst I have ever seen in all my years of camping. We camped at USA RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

J & H RV Park (55 + Park), Flagstaff, Arizona

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $59.00
Overall Rating:

This park is located off 89 just Northeast of Flagstaff very close to I-40. The park is small and has a wall around it helping make it quiet which it was. The park has been there 27 years and is in the process of being passed to the next generation. The only inconivience is the office does not open until 10:00 AM or after- Sites are spaced ok and pretty much terraced but easy in and out with our 41' 5th wheel. All clean gravel - good water pressure and WiFi was OK. There was a nice fenced in dog run with grass which the puppies loved. There are several common patio areas with grills, etc. if a group might want to have a party. Very quiet and well managed park. We camped at J & H RV Park (55 + Park) in a Fifth Wheel.

Tombstone RV Park and Campground, Tombstone, Arizona

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $49.00
Overall Rating:

You have to understand what part of the country you are in - not much to choose from but, I will say this is a good campground and except for the highway noise I would give it a 10. As is common in this part of the world everything is gravel but, clean. We had a easy pull through with resonable space on both sides. Water pressure was good and WiFi was acceptable. There was a convienient fenced area for the dogs to run a little but, of course no grass. Nice swimming pool and playground for kids but, that really did not apply to us old folks. This was a good campground for a base to see the area. We camped at Tombstone RV Park and Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Hacienda RV Resort, Las Cruces, New Mexico

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $53.00
Overall Rating:

First let me announce the WiFi was great the whole time! This park is located right off I-10 in the "valley" area of Las Cruces and it is very close to Old Mesilla. We noticed very little highway noise and of course inside the camper you did not hear anything. The park is laid out with wide paved streets with gravel pull thrus. On the perimeter there are some back-ins. There is a wall surrounding the park giving a good sense of security. We had sight 148 which was a pull thru and room to disconnect and park the dually. On the sitting side of the camper is a tall fence accented with foliage to give a sense of privacy. The sites have the rigs parking with the sewer and hook up sides facing each other. This is great so you don't have to sit out in the evening and observe someone's sewer pipe. The water pressure is strong so be sure and check your pressure. Trash is picked up daily at your sight. There is an enclosed pool and small store for quick items. We were here a week and really enjoyed the campground - it is convenient to local attractions. The highlight was White Sands Monument We camped at Hacienda RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Fort Stockton RV Park, Fort Stockton, Texas

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $39.00
Overall Rating:

This is a "Stop Over" campground because Fort Stockton is in the middle of no where. This is the best in the area because we saw the others while being around town. We were there two days and I was amazed at the amount of campers in and out. It is all gravel with a few potholes down the entrance road but, use good sense. Staff was great and courteous - made sure we got a discount - and warned us about the winds - don't leave your awnings out or antenna up if you are going to be away from your camper for awhile. There are long terms located in a separate area, and our site was easy in and out pull thru - good water pressure and the WiFi worked pretty good. There is a great fenced in dog area for the dogs to run free, great swimming pool, and a really cool little resturaunt with great and reasonable food. We would stay here again- We camped at Fort Stockton RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Midway Park COE, Waco, Texas

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $14.00
Overall Rating:

Fantastic price for stay with National Parks Senior Discount. Park has only 7 Pull Thru sights with Full Hook up and sewer. They are located about 200 yds from Texas Hwy 6 which has heavy traffic which is very noisy when sitting outside. Be aware there is no WiFi and no cable TV - this is a COE park. The pull thru sights are spacious and easy in and out. There are also about 25 other sights in the back part of the campground some actually on the lake but no sewer sights. This was a great park for visiting the sights in Waco however were disappointed that the grass was very high and there was household trash left in our fire ring which was never picked up the time we were there. The park ranger said grass cutting was contracted to be cut once a month - the resident camper management had cut and manicured grass however. You can't beat the price and proximity to town however if we came back we might look elsewhere for a campsite. We camped at Midway Park COE in a Fifth Wheel.

New Orleans KOA, River Ridge, Louisiana

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $53.00
Overall Rating:

We have been camping a little over 4 years in our 5th wheel rig. We have a generator on board, stacked washer and dryer, and a top mounted Winegard Direct TV Dish. We have discovered over the years commercial campsites are as tight as possible in order to get as many campers in as possible, there is almost never decent WiFi, and they are mostly not in the best part of town. With all of that being said we don't need showers, laundry facilities, etc. because we already have our own. I do find if a campground does keep the areas clean and functional then it is most likely a good campground and that is what we look for. THE KOA River Ridge is small and located in an old neighborhood virtually right on the Mississippi River. It is fenced but not gated so there is only one way in or out. All sites are back ins and the streets are plenty wide enough for maneuvering big rigs (ours is a 41' Big Horn 5th wheel). Spacing is reasonable and the staff is very helpful. This campground does not have a lot of kid activities but does have a swimming pool and some playground equipment. I would stay here again. To me it is a great location for visiting NOLA. The campground offers a free shuttle to the French Quarter. WiFi was good! Water pressure good - we did not use the cable TV because our onboard TV antenna got plenty of local channels. We camped at New Orleans KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Meaher State Park, Spanish Fort, Alabama

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $29.00
Overall Rating:

First time here VERY PLEASANT SURPRISE! This is a small campground located right on Mobile Bay. I-10 crosses it and the city skyline is in the background. It has many tall, pruned, pine trees providing lots of shade and there is always a breeze from the bay. The staff keeps it immaculate, very clean, and staff is very helpful. All sites are back in on asphalt throughout the entire park. We had site number 19 which backed up to the water. They are very spacious and easy to maneuver in. We had 50 amp, water, and sewer (water pressure was around 40 ). Good WiFi but, don't expect to stream on it. There is no store but, Spainish Fort is just a couple miles away, the ranger station does have ice for sale. If you have pets be aware of the sand spurs getting in their fur and if you are close to the water the alligators are close by - most are in the 6 - 10' range. There are two really nice fishing docks and I am told fishing is good. We would definitely stay here again if ever back this way. We camped at Meaher State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

J.O.Y. RV Park (formerly Sonrise Village RV Resort), Cocoa, Florida

Date of Stay: February, 2017 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

I don't know how to change the name of the park but, it is now JOY RV Park and is virtually adjacent to Sonrise Christian Park. It is a small loop, a combination of pull through and back in sites. All level and not too tight. Nice pool, clubhouse with weekend activites. We have a fully equipped 5th wheel with W/D so we are pretty much self sufficient. Nice people staying there, very few long terms, great staff. The only negative is the noise from I-95 - we were lucky to get a spot in the back so it wasn't too bad. Good location to see local area and Orlando is about 45 - 60 minutes. We enjoyed our stay. We camped at J.O.Y. RV Park (formerly Sonrise Village RV Resort) in a Fifth Wheel.

OK RV Park, Holbrook, Arizona

Date of Stay: October, 2016 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

This is a High Volume overnight stop right off I-40 in Holbrook. Basically a large gravel parking lot with long pull thrus with rigs parked in a staggard arrangement.

Very close but, there is room for slides. Power, sewer, & WiFi was OK. We stayed here 5 nights to visit sights in the area.

I don't think there is much choice anywhere close by so from that standpoint it was OK.

It was amusing how the majority of the campground would empty out during the day and then fill back up in the evening. We camped at OK RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Eagle View RV Resort, Fort Mcdowell, Arizona

Date of Stay: October, 2016 - $37.00
Overall Rating:

The word "Resort" should be changed to "Parking Lot". We attended a Heartland Local Chapter Rally here. All sites are asphalt back ins with gravel between the parking spots. There are no picnic tables anywhere - not even in the Bar B Que area. No trees. No store in the office although the showers and laundry is very clean. A Chevron station near the park entrance that has your quick needs at premium prices.
It is very clean mainly because the RV Resort is fairly new. The location is a short distance from Fountain Hills with the only thing close by being a Casino.
We visited a few tourist sights in the area and also noted several other RV Parks that were pretty rough looking.
All in all it was an OK stay. We camped at Eagle View RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Camp Verde is a good location to go to the many places in the nearby area. Out from town and very quiet - we would stay here again! We camped at Zane Grey RV Park (55+ park) in a Fifth Wheel.

Hi Valley RV Park, Boise, Idaho

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $37.00
Overall Rating:

It is a bit of a struggle to get from the expressway to the campsight which is located in a residential area with some nice parks close by. Several surface streets to traverse and tough in afternoon traffic.

The reward is the campground - the widest in park streets I have ever seen. Easy to pull into the sites and get out.

About 25% are long term and are all neat except for one guy that was growing a jungle of vines which had almost covered his entire camper - must be an old hippy!

Great staff, park is kept very clean and it is quiet.

WiFi was good and so was Verizon. We camped at Hi Valley RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
