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 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.

Zane Grey RV Park (55+ park), Camp Verde, Arizona

Date of Stay: October, 2016 - $36.00
Overall Rating:      

First off: No Cable No WiFi (didn't work) All red rock gravel with no grass but very neat and clean park. Many trees - the management did let me move sites to get a better satillite signal.
Camp sites are large and separated by rail fence to give a sense of privacy.
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.

Panguitch KOA, Panguitch, Utah

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

Located just on the edge of this very small town it is a very nice campground. Lots of in and out overnighters but, no long time campers. Has cabins, large rentalable tents, and tent camping sights. Pull through sights are a little close and a tree in our sight kept us from fully opening our awning. WiFi a bit slow at times, Verizon weak.
Staff is fantastic folks always working on maintenance and improvements. Very quite area. The town of Panquitch is very quaint. Some dust problems but, for the location for sightseeing in the area this was a great stay. We camped at Panguitch KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Pony Express RV Resort, North Salt Lake, Utah

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

This is a fairly new campground located just off I-215 in a heavy industrial. Well laid out with wide roads making it easy to park. My only complaint is I thought the sites could be a little more roomy but, it's all about packing as many in a small space to enhance income. My wife used the laundry which was clean.

We did not use any of the other amenities ie: pool, playground, etc., but all are first class. As usual WiFi came and went but, Verizon was good.

There is a private entrance to the Jordan River Parkway which is a 50 mile metro paved walking or bicycle path. We really enjoyed our walks.

There is some highway noise but, you are inside Salt Lake. We camped at Pony Express RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Yellowstone Grizzly RV Park, West Yellowstone, Montana

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $47.00
Overall Rating:      

This is one of the nicest parks we have ever stayed in. We had the standard pull thru and take my word it is plenty nice. We had friends that turned their camper around facing ours and we had a great time.
All paved streets, well landscaped, just beautiful. Sites are easy in and our pull through. A little close but adequate.
WiFi and phones OK. Restrooms, showers, and laundry - super clean!
Close walk to town if you want and the West Park Entrance is about 1 mile away.
The only negative I have Saturday morning we were sitting outside with friends and their lawnmower came around. This thing is like a Big Union Pacific locomotive and just as loud. I went to the desk and complained and they informed me they cut grass everyday.The girl said she would send the manager to see me but, she never showed. I could understand during the week but, the weekend?
If I had been playing music as loud as the lawnmower I am sure the Police would have been called.
We still enjoyed the campground in spite of the one incident. We camped at Yellowstone Grizzly RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Great stopover on our way to Yellowstone. The campground sits on a small plateau overlooking the city of Lander and the mountains in the background, The stay is worth the view!
A little tight but, adequate - gravel surface, clean and well kept. My wife did our laundry and had no problems. WiFi OK and phone service good.
Great staff - we would definitely stay here again! We camped at Sleeping Bear RV Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

AB Camping & RV Park, Cheyenne, Wyoming

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $42.00
Overall Rating:      

Not the best part of town but, protected by fencing and security guards. This is a good park for short term and overnight. Park divided into two sections - one for Full Timers and shorter rigs, the other for Big Rigs and overnighters. All gravel, easy in and out, spacing is adequate but not too close.

Family run with a great BBQ restaurant on site - highly recommended!

We were here for 3 nights and did some visiting in the area.

WiFi was weak at times and Verizon was good.

We would stay here again with no problem. We camped at AB Camping & RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Mountaindale Cabins & RV Resort, Colorado Springs, Colorado

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $47.00
Overall Rating:      

Absolutly fabulous! Located on the side of a mountain about 15 miles south of the city it is a very quick and easy trek into town. The wonderful thing is the seclusion. There is no pavement but well manicured sites and roads with the "Red Rocks" of the area.
The staff is friendly and always attenitive to your needs. The sights are roomy but do have trees to be careful of and there again the staff assists in parking and exiting.
One thing unique the campground caters to their regulars and will hold and confirm certain sites. We had to move after the first day but, then had the same spot for the next 7. We talked to campers that had been coming through for years. There are very few full timers and there sites are well kept.
Several times wild deer will just walk through the campground which is really cool.
The only negative, which is no fault of the campground, is Verizon service almost does not work. The WiFi was good - they have repeaters all over the park.
On a note during our visit we saw several other campgrounds in Colorado Springs and most looked liked Drive In theaters - close and junky. Thanks to RV Reviews we landed a good stay! We camped at Mountaindale Cabins & RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

High Plains Camping, Oakley, Kansas

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

Basic stopover site. We stayed two nights. Most of the campground would be full by 8 o'clock and then mostly empty the next day and fill up again.

Mostly very roomy pull thru sites on improved gravel. Decent WiFi. Don't use showers or cable TV.

Nothing for kids, but a Pub and Resturaunt close by.

My wife and I enjoy walking, and a long walk down the nearby country roads was great.

We would camp here again! We camped at High Plains Camping in a Fifth Wheel.

Kansas City West / Lawrence KOA , Lawrence, Kansas

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $59.00
Overall Rating:      

There were not many good choices for campgrounds in this area. Thanks to RV Park Reviews to help us decide. We have stayed at Jellystone Parks in other places so we expected a certain standard.

The campground is somewhat difficult to find because of the Toll gates from the Interstate, but we found it.

It's a little worn and not polished,is the best way to describe it. Roads are gravel as well as camp sites. We had a Premium Pull Thru located on a corner and was very nice.

About half of the park are long term residents and we met a few and enjoyed them.

There are quite a few locals that come in and camp on the weekends so the camp does become full.

We don't use the showers or cable so I have no comment there. The WiFi was good most of the time. In spite of all, we would stay here again. We camped at Kansas City West / Lawrence KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

This was a "One Nighter" but I must say a great place to stay. If we were going to be in the area for any length of time this would be number one.

Easy in an out of the campground with good long pull-through sight. A little tight between spots, but OK. Nice pool, play area for kids, and we did our morning walk through the adjacent fairgrounds and ball fields next door.

WiFi was OK, water, 50 amp, etc. very good. Great stop! We camped at Cottonwoods RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Parkers Crossroads RV Park and Campground, Yuma, Tennessee

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

We love "RV Park Reviews"! Could not find any acceptable campgrounds near Jackson, TN so we choose Parkers Crossroads, which turned out to have an interesting Civil War Battlefield. We did our morning walk around the battlefield, which was great. The home of Casey Jones, which we visited, is about 30 minutes away and I highly recommend the Buffett at the village - real fresh vegatables.

The campground is somewhat older and divided into two sections, one of which are long time residents and the other an area of pull-through sites for travelers. It is basic but acceptable and the local guy helped us get parked and situated. The road in is gravel, but the site is concrete in good condition. Water pressure is high, so be sure to have your regulator. WiFi is not consistent. No trees or picnic table.

This was an easy in and out campground and I think as good as you will get for the area and we would stay here again. We camped at Parkers Crossroads RV Park and Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
