Washington / Pittsburgh SW KOA, Washington, Pennsylvania

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $46.00
Overall Rating:      

Pulled into this KOA after a long day on the road because I needed electricity to cool off the TT. Very few CGs in the area. Office was closed so I picked an available site of the list. CG sits on a steep hill! The road from the office takes you to the top of the CG and you work your way down the hill. Site 20 is at the top of the CG. There is a sizable tree right next to the site (gravel) pad. I had to adjust the TT a few times so the Utilities were reachable and I could still open my door. Shared water spigot was on the wrong side and my 25ft hose just reached. Site was level side to side. My electric powered off 4 times due to my surge protector measuring voltage in excess of 133 volts. I stopped by the office in the morning to inform them of the issue (BTW, I wasn't looking for an adjustment). Got into a discussion with the clerk and the owner about that over-voltage couldn't happen. I expected, "sorry about that, we will look into it." This CG is overpriced, hard to navigate to due to the narrow, hilly road from the main road and the worst KOA I have stayed at in my travels. We camped at Washington / Pittsburgh SW KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Ray Behrens COE, Monroe City, Missouri

Very nice COE campground. Gate attendants were very helpful. Campground has a mix of full HU and electric only sites. A bit out of the way but worth the drive! We camped at Ray Behrens COE in a Travel Trailer.

Falcon Meadow Campground, Falcon, Colorado

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $34.00
Overall Rating:      

Last minute choice. Main road in is rutted from rain. Site is gravel and required a little leveling. Gravel with dirt mixed in required me to lay my mat out. Well, a heavy rain showed me why the road is rutted! Drainage in the CG is poor. My site was completely cut off from walking around during and after the storm. My mat was soaked and covered with dirt. Laundry room was filthy and the there is a warning posted that warns that their water may stain your clothes. There was a bucket in the laundry room to catch the water from the roof leak. All buildings and the road need immediate attention. Road noise dies down late in the evening but picks up early in the morning. I suggest staying here in a pinch and only overnight. We camped at Falcon Meadow Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Waylon Jennings RV Park, Littlefield, Texas

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $5.00
Overall Rating:      

Free RV Park in town. Main part of CG has electric and water sites. However, they have added some FHU sites on the opposite side of the horseshoe pits. Great place for an overnight stop. $5 was a donation. Thanks Waylon for park! We camped at Waylon Jennings RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Enchanted Trails RV Park & Trading Post, Albuquerque, New Mexico

Date of Stay: April, 2017 - $29.00

West of ABQ right off of I-40 and next door to Camping World. Noise from the interstate depends on the wind. Very dusty. Staff is friendly. We camped at Enchanted Trails RV Park & Trading Post in a Travel Trailer.

San Angelo State Park, San Angelo, Texas

Date of Stay: April, 2017 - $24.00

Price includes daily gate fee to the park. Currently, you can't reserve a specific site. Speeding is an issue. Sites are large and may require some leveling. Very close to shopping. Loved watching the prairie dogs play! We camped at San Angelo State Park in a Travel Trailer.

River View RV Park & Resort, Vidalia, Louisiana

Date of Stay: March, 2017 - $36.00
Overall Rating:      

Excellent campground! Strange that it is on the river side of the levee, so you can't get much closer to the mighty Mississippi! This CG would be a 10 if the price was lower. Staff were friendly and helpful. I stayed in the North side and preferred it over the South side. Tremendous views of the river and the bluffs of Natchez. A couple of barges stopped near the CG on 2 or 3 nights but their engines were a minor issue. Sheriff rode thru a couple of times each day. We camped at River View RV Park & Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Cajun RV Park, Biloxi, Mississippi

Date of Stay: March, 2017 - $38.00
Overall Rating:      

This park is overrated on this site and Good Sam! Spaces are very close on all sides unless you get a pull thru in the front. WiFi was unusable. Cost of laundry is on the high side, $2.50 to wash, $1.75 to dry. Plus small load of towels did not dry completely. Long term snowbirds and workcamper manager have no problem walking thru occupied sites as a short cut to the office and guest lounge. I suggest you stay away from any sites in the middle of the rows due to this fact. I spoke to the manager about this and she admitted that she cuts thru also and asked me if I expected her to stand outside to put a stop to this practice. Cost does not reflect value received. Train tracks are directly behind the CG and the trains are constant. I would NOT stay at this CG again. We camped at Cajun RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Live Oak Landing, Freeport, Florida

Date of Stay: February, 2017 - $27.00
Overall Rating:      

Quiet campground just off of Choctawhatchee Bay and near the emerald coast beaches. My site was in the newer section of the CG. I needed to level the trailer which I found strange on a very new pad. They have done no landscaping in the section so you have construction trash, roots and tree branches surrounding you. Laundry is outside with only 2 washer and dryers. Rule enforcement is non-existent. Cable worked but was fuzzy. Utilities worked fine. Typical CG Wi-fi. We camped at Live Oak Landing in a Travel Trailer.

Daytona Beach Carefree RV Resort, Port Orange, Florida

Date of Stay: January, 2017 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

Rate is based on the monthly rate. This CG caters to French-Canadian snowbirds. 50% or more of the campers were from Quebec. They are currently working on upgrading the landscaping along the road and common areas but they don't do much at the individual sites. I had to borrow a rake to tidy up my site. They also changed the WiFi while I was there from Tengo to their own system. So, they now offer free Wi-fi. It worked well for email and simple browsing. Interior roads are narrow but asphalt. Sites are a mixture of sand, grass and concrete slab. My site was sand and leveling was a problem. I found the staff to be helpful if you asked a question but not very friendly. I would stay here again in a pinch. We camped at Daytona Beach Carefree RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

International RV Park & Campground, Daytona Beach, Florida

Date of Stay: December, 2016 - $28.00
Overall Rating:      

CG was full of snowbirds with only a few sites available. I had plenty of room beside me but you can almost touch your neighbor(s) behind you. My site was on the main road in and out of the CG, so noise from traffic was constant. Also noise from International Speedway Blvd was bothersome. LED street lights are bright and my site was lit up every night where the lights were in your eyes if you sat outside in the evening. Wi-fi was up and down all week. We camped at International RV Park & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Blythe Island Regional Park Campground, Brunswick, Georgia

Date of Stay: December, 2016 - $17.00
Overall Rating:      

This was my second stay here and it was like I was staying in a different CG. Rate is based on monthly rate. Your experience will be determined by where your site is located in the park. All of the sites have natural vegetation dividing the sites with sand or crushed seashells to park. Wi-fi was poor and the staff knows it but does nothing to get it fixed. Dust is a constant problem mostly caused by campers and staff speeding thru the CG. Noise from I-95 and the cellulose plant is pretty constant. If the winds are blowing from the east then you will smell the cellulose plant. I felt I was bothering the staff each time I stopped by the office. 3 washers and dryers costing $1.50 each. This is a great CG for a couple of nights but I would not stay here for longer. We camped at Blythe Island Regional Park Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Pirateland Family Campground, Myrtle Beach, South Carolina

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

Due to recent hurricane damage only half of the campground was open. Sites are not cleaned by the staff. I policed my site after setting up, picking up trash, cigarette butts and broken shingles from the patio shelters. Wi-fi was in and out during my 2 weeks and it really slowed down when the CG was busy. Cable is analog, however satellite reception was good in the beach area. Speeding by staff was more of a problem then by campers. Staff moving stored trailers to sites ignored speed limits and speed bumps. Turning left out of the campground can be an issue when traffic is heavy. Laundry was clean but small for the size of the campground. I didn't understand why the CG continually clustered campers together when there was room to spread them out. We camped at Pirateland Family Campground in a Travel Trailer.
