Massey's Landing, Millsboro, Delaware

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $70.00
Overall Rating:      

Very large, wide open park. Inches above sea level, with sand soil, so I don't expect it to be ever well treed in the future. But, very nice bush, shrub and flower plantings maintained well everywhere. Pull through sites are paved, separated by back in sites with gravel. They seem to try to leave every other site open to give more room to the occupied ones, unless demand requires they be used. Most sites are close - but ours was huge - room for two tents, and easily could have added 2 10x10 pop-ups too. Asphalt had room for 34' TT, Truck, and two cars! On a large bay, protected from the ocean by barrier islands. Full range of "resort" amenities - nice sand beach. Also a separated dedicated dog beach. Zero depth pool, with swim up bar. On weekends a DJ or live act blasting tunes at the pool. Lots of kid friendly activities. Golf carts for rent. Not needed to get around at all. Hard to walk dogs on roads due to carts, cars and bikes. Lots of "good behavior rules", but no enforcement. WiFi was pretty poor in our area. On site "to-go" restaurant, with delivery to your site. Tiki bar up and running, but not too heavily used. Desk clerks give priority to incoming/outgoing phone calls, so wait to check in can be long. We camped at Massey's Landing in a Travel Trailer.

Madison / Pittsburgh SE KOA, Ruffs Dale, Pennsylvania

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $50.00
Overall Rating:      

Moderately remote from Pittsburgh, near the junction of I-70 and I-76. Steep entry downhill to office and campground, with sites terraced on the uphill side of the small valley it is in. As noted, side to side leveling was a bit of an issue. Actually a pretty large CG, but most of it is occupied by long term sites - local gas/oil worker types. Many older campers, but sites were very neat and not built out like some seasonal places can be. A moderate amount of traffic in the evening and early morning as people come from/go to work. Quiet, no partiers. Grounds were well maintained. WiFi on a par with most places, barely useable. We camped at Madison / Pittsburgh SE KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Country Acres Campground, Gordonville, Pennsylvania

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $60.00
Overall Rating:      

Other reviews have covered the main points of this facility. This is definitely not a "resort" style campground. One modest swing/teeter totter area for the kids. Very, very nice zero depth entry swimming pool. Pricey, but on a par with all the other CG's in the area. Immaculately maintained, with very, very nice plantings throughout. Big rig areas have no tree cover, but sites are very large. We stayed almost two weeks, and it was a great central location as a base to tour the area. We camped at Country Acres Campground in a Travel Trailer.

It is owned as part of a collection of motels, inns, restaurants etc. by a local Bird-n-Hand family. Included in the stay was a free 2 hr tour of Amish country, with a couple of stops at Amish stores, that departed from another facility about 5 miles away. A local Amish woman and daughter come by on Friday evenings pushing a cart selling homemade bakery items.

The Old Barn Resort, Preston, Minnesota

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

A very pretty location, with the huge barn, now converted into restaurant/bar/resort offices at the top of a bluff overlooking the surrounding river valleys. We camped during early season, so were one of the few people there. Resort has covered pool (didn't use), 18 hole golf course, limited access to on property trout stream, located right on the regional bike trail. Campsites are terraced in the hillside going down to river. Large to very large grass sites - lots of space to spread out. Most are very flat and level. Road signs to sites non-existent. May be difficult to very difficult to back into sites when CG is very full, due to single lane roads. Only weak cell service at the Barn bluff, and in highest loop - "A". No service anywhere else in campground. No WiFi at all. TV antenna picked up 13 channels, however. Trash at one end of CG, which can be a very long trek from some sites (no site pickup). 50% seasonal campers, but all very, very well maintained. 2 Day minimum stay (3 on Holidays) required. Restroom/Bath houses old cinderblock, in need of updating, but clean and functional. Coin operated showers. We camped at The Old Barn Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Goulding's Lodge & Campground, Monument Valley, Utah

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $49.00
Overall Rating:      

As others have noted, this is almost the only game in the area. Wifi was usable for the basics. Cell service was surprisingly excellent. No broadcast TV or radio available. Main CG has tighter spacing. It is augmented by additional spaces in parking areas and vacant lots, which we were in - making WalMart seem better! Water pressure a bit low. Nothing terrible, just pretty high priced. But, considering how remote you are from anywhere else, it is to be expected! We camped at Goulding's Lodge & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

There are many, many tour companies offering tours of Monument Valley. Goulding's tours are convenient, but usually very crowded. We opted to go with a local Navajo owned company instead that meets inside the park. Note that admittance to the Monument is for two days per vehicle ($20 at this writing), and is run by the Navajo's, not the State for Federal government, so there are no discounts.

Lightner Creek Campground, Durango, Colorado

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

In general, the other reviews cover the highs (and lows) of this CG. While on the small side, we had no issue navigating it in our 30' fifth. CG is 1.5 miles from the main road, and another 4 mi. from Durango. Trip into town for groceries, restaurants, etc. is fast and convenient. CG is very pleasant and pretty - well treed, with Lightner Creek running through it. It is NOT just a parking lot, as so many can be. Staff were very pleasant, and gave ample assistance in backing into site and setting up. Note that WiFi is non-existent in the CG, and due to being in a canyon, cell service is also very, very spotty. Some sites have very nice decks overhanging the creek! Sites vary as to amount of leveling needed - some were great, some had significant slope to them. Spacing, while not on state park levels, was good, giving a decent amount of room between neighbors. As noted, laundry driers take a very long time - bring lots of quarters and time. Took us 3 hrs and $10.50 to wash/dry (simultaneously) 2 loads. Steep incline to entrance drive, but was easily manageable. Minimal secondary parking available, but rigs with toads were easily accommodated - just don't plan on this being a CG where groups with many vehicles can share a spot.

Our space also required electrical and water extensions for our cords/hoses, which we had.

Overall, we enjoyed it a lot, and would return! We camped at Lightner Creek Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

One mile down 160 toward town is the Durango Off Leash dog park. A HUGE open area with trails to allow Fido to run. Makes up for the restricted space at the campground! Google it, no sign for it on the main road, and it appears you are pulling in a private driveway and parking on someone's property - look for the "Public Parking" signs once you turn off the road.

Buena Vista KOA, Buena Vista, Colorado

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

Very poor wifi and cell coverage. No site escort as at many KOA's. Pizza and firewood delivery. Most sites terraced. Some leveling needed. Facilities are older and could use updating. Not enough restrooms for size of CG. Beautiful views of the mountains. Not noted, but connects to several local trails on public land, for dog walking, biking, etc. We camped at Buena Vista KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Very small CG, just off the highway. Some noise from Interstate. By no means a "destination", but a good choice for an overnight stop. Essentially a flat gravel parking lot. WiFi on a par with most CG's, only good for basics. We camped at Sleepy Sunflower RV Park (formerly Open Corral Campground) in a Fifth Wheel.

West Omaha / NE Lincoln KOA, Gretna, Nebraska

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

A very nice KOA. Sites are very close together, but most are "big rig" accessible. Even with completely full CG, power was a full 120v. Tenengo wifi, usual campground speeds (good during off hours, almost unusable during peak periods). Friendly, very helpful staff. Sites reasonably level. Enhanced playground for kids. On site pizza delivery! We camped at West Omaha / NE Lincoln KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Cloquet/Duluth KOA, Cloquet, Minnesota

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $55.00
Overall Rating:      

Cost includes surcharge for 3 extra people ($12), using a tent.

Be advised that you risk expensive damage if camping here with electricity.

Other reviews have covered the basics of this campground. We found most of the already mentioned negatives not to be big issues. There were trains, but even our 2 yr. old slept through them (in a tent!). They delivered firewood to the site. It appears they even restocked us with additional the next day, at no charge. WiFi was present, but as typical for most campgrounds, virtually unusable due to demand during peak periods.

Bad electricity alone would have earned a low rating. Although they responded by sending their electrician over, there was no solution, except to move to one of two very marginal sites, where it was unknown if power was better.

Our last evening, there was a very large thunderstorm. We arrived back about an hour after it had passed. A crew was finishing up clearing a couple of downed trees that were on, but not blocking, the main entrance road. Tent had been uprooted, and the fifth was surrounded by 4" of standing water out to about 25 feet. No access but to wade. No place for the tent, except in the lake that was our site. There was no response from the staff. When I informed the office that we were leaving due to being flooded, I was met with a shrug. No offer to try to relocate, or even a show of concern. Requested final pump out was denied as the crew was busy with the scheduled ice cream social (despite storm cleanup/flooding!?!) I did later see the honeywagon pass by, and the driver agreed to stop and pump us out. Storms and other such natural things happen and this was not a disaster, much of the campground came through in great condition. In the State Park, I would have accepted it as part of camping. But when paying premium prices, one expects infrastructure that works, and a bit of an attempt to moderate the displacement of their customers. We camped at Cloquet/Duluth KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Stony Point Rv Park & Campground, Cass Lake, Minnesota

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

Stoney Point has a very high number of seasonal sites, most of which appear to have been occupied for many years. Also has a number of rental cabins for those without an RV/Park Model trailer. All sites were in excellent condition, and maintained to a very high level. Resort features a double canal/harbor with boat docking/rental available.

Huge beach with swim area filled with giant inflatables for kids.

This was after Labor Day, so resort was at low eb. With the huge number of sites, it may be a different story on busy summer weekends.

Staff were all pleasant and accommodating, although disorganized and some untrained. They were more used to dealing with customers that were already familiar, as there was little information shared at check-in. We had to figure out on our own by walking around where the bathrooms were, laundry, that there was a pretty decent restaurant on property, etc. Store is primarily a heavily stocked gift shop Only beverages available. Only a mile or two from a full grocery, so this is not a big issue.

We rented a premium site located on the main small canal. Gravel, with an old concrete "patio" pad. Sites are old, so have gone out of level over the years. Site was back-in, and took a fair bit of backing and filling to get into.

No cable TV - only local limited over the air. Free Wi-Fi limited to the main building. $25 per week fee for slow campground Wi-Fi.

Many extra charges - pet fee, docking fee, boat launch fee, extra tent fee, etc.

Overall, good to very good facility, but potentially crowded, that seems overpriced for the RV'er/Camper. OK for a night or two. For longer stays, better to choose a real cabin resort for only a bit more, and leave the RV at home, or use the very nearby Forest Service campgrounds, if you can get by with limited/no hookups. We camped at Stony Point Rv Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Betty's RV Park, Abbeville, Louisiana

Date of Stay: May, 2015 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

As noted, Betty has graveled over her side and back yard, installed hookups, and called it an RV park. Don't expect any of the usual amenities. There's no place to walk the dog. No on site things for kids to do. But she works very, very hard to be a resource for all the things to do in the local area. Her 4:30 "happy hours" (BYOB, and appetizers) bring everyone staying there together, where each can share where to go, what to do, and maybe even do it together if so inclined. A "social" campground in the old fashioned sense, with everyone - repeat or first timer welcome. We camped at Betty's RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Gulf State Park Campground, Gulf Shores, Alabama

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

The other reviews cover the highlights, just need to comment that this is a great facility! Biking, hiking, fishing pier, beach, nature trails, fantastic pool area, dog park with swimming lake. Computers were down, as was WiFi during our 1 week stay, so there were mix ups in our site assignment that were not handled well, staff was pretty frazzled by it all. Downgraded pull through site we ended with was pretty much like parking in our driveway at home. There are many, many better sites. But putting that aside, we loved the park and will specifically be planning trips there again. Both as a place to do a lot and never leave, and as a base to explore the Gulf Coast, it can't be beat! By no means "wilderness", but a very big, calm, natural oasis in the middle of the bustling beach front developments. We camped at Gulf State Park Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Bring your bikes - great variety of paved trails in the park.

Dog beach/park is a bit away, so you may prefer driving rather than walking to it, but it is a nice open area to allow your dogs to burn off extra energy.
