Alamo Fiesta RV Resort, Boerne, Texas

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

They take liberties to add "resort" to the name there - although the price reflected it. Sites were pedestrian, very tight, and not particularly attractive. We stayed in order to be close to some places that we planned to visit, but I considered it to be just an overnight stop sort of place - not a resort. It appeared that a good percentage of the people were long-term residents. Others have mentioned the bad Wi-Fi, and it was indeed bad. I've used faster dial-up. They claim to have updated their system and had a sign at the front desk soliciting feedback, but I think they know that whatever updating they did was not working. We camped at Alamo Fiesta RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Balmorhea State Park, Balmorhea, Texas

Date of Stay: April, 2017 - $14.00
Overall Rating:      

After driving through miles of desolate West Texas the sight of green as we approached the park was a delight. Balmorhea is literally an oasis in the middle of the high desert. This is not the place to go if you want activities and lots to do, but if you want a quiet and restful stop along your way, this is the place. I'll try to avoid the things that others have said, but to say "pool" is an understatement. They bill it as the largest spring-fed pool in the world, holding 3.5 million gallons of water! Like no "pool" I've ever seen. Some said that the water is cold, but in fact it's 72-76* year round, so if you are swimming it's just great. Our site was level, had good water pressure, good voltage, and we passed the dump station on the way out. None of the sites have a sewer hookup. We thought that the water quality was good, but have a Brita filter on our faucet anyway. There is no Wi-Fi available, but we have a Jetpack (Verizon hotspot) and the signal was fine. Staff was pleasant and helpful. A note: campsite/RV rate is $14, but there is an added "entry fee" per day that as some have said, can feel like a "gotcha", but the Texas state park pass is $70 per year which gets you into all their parks without the fee. We did the math and for us, it was worth buying the pass. Either way it seemed like a fair price to us. We camped at Balmorhea State Park in a Motorhome.

Mount Pleasant KOA, Mt. Pleasant, Texas

Date of Stay: January, 2017 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

I was disheartened by the high price, but from time to time I need to be reminded that theme RV parks and KOAs are always high cost. I understand that in the summer, when all the extra amenities are available, but very few ARE in the winter months. Seems like the parks should be priced accordingly. In the summer we might give the park a better grade. We had been driving a long time and decided to bite the bullet to get some rest. The services were unremarkable, but the concrete pad was a good thing in light of all the rain and resulting mud. Bottom line...no complaints except the "bottom line". We camped at Mount Pleasant KOA in a Motorhome.

Delta Ridge RV Park, Inc., Forrest City, Arkansas

Date of Stay: January, 2017 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

Great overnight stop at a good price. For the money I could have easily given it 5 stars, but there are no amenities and it's not a fancy place, as others have noted. The area around the entrance is seedy, but it's a plain and simple place to hang your hat when traveling I40. It was muddy when we pulled out (access just gravel). The owner was a gentleman, very friendly and welcoming. We camped at Delta Ridge RV Park, Inc. in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Despite some positive reviews of the Ole Sawmill Cafe, (at the entrance to the park) I'd recommend that you pass it up. We were there for breakfast and the buffet wasn't worth $7.50. The food was barely warm and simply not very good. AND...they add $2.50 for coffee, which makes the buffet pricey, even in a better neighborhood.

Monahans Sandhills State Park, Monahans, Texas

Date of Stay: January, 2016 - $23.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a great place to stop-over, or to stay a few days. There are a limited number of sites with water and electric, and more camping/tent sites, and some pavilions for picnics. The best part - if you're traveling - is that the place is QUIET. No traffic or trains. It's right off of I-20, with easy access. I suggest that you Google the park, because there are too many details to mention here, but I highly recommend it. We stop here every year in January on the trip west, and there's always room. It might be another story in the warmer months. No sewer hookups, but a dump station on the way out. I had 3G coverage, and cell phones worked fine. We camped at Monahans Sandhills State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Check this park out online. They rent saucers/discs, for sliding down the dunes, and the children love it.

The website wouldn't let me add a comment at the price. It's based on cost of the site plus a per person entry fee. It was $4 per adult, and $15 for the site.

We are 52 feet including towing a car, so they can handle some larger rigs.

Cowtown RV Park, Aledo, Texas

Date of Stay: January, 2016 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

This is mostly a residential park, with some travelers like us. Staff was pleasant and escorted us to the site. The sites are tight, and the night we stayed was after some heavy rain. Our concrete pad was wet and the as soon as I stepped off the pad I was in mud. Called it "satisfactory, since they can't control the weather. Not a joy to hook up in, but it was just for the night. The park is right on the parallel access road along I-20 which is nice is you want accessibility, but the traffic noise is constant. We were toward the rear of the park, so it didn't keep us awake. We didn't use the cable, and didn't venture out into the mud (and it was after dark) so can't rate any of the grounds or facilities. We camped at Cowtown RV Park in a Motorhome.

Little Vineyard RV Park & Resort, Deming, New Mexico

Date of Stay: January, 2016 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

Stopped here many times before. Like most of the parks in Deming it's just flat, gravel, open (no trees) and some train noise, but they don't sound their horns during the night. The hot tub was nice, but quite a distance from the "transient" area of the park. For us it's just a stopover on the way west, so it serves the purpose. Nothing scenic about it, and the office folks aren't the most friendly, but as a stopover it's predictable. Cable connection was damaged and I repaired it myself. We didn't use the Wi-Fi. We camped at Little Vineyard RV Park & Resort in a Motorhome.

Dub'l R RV Park, Brinkley, Arkansas

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

We found what the previous reviewers reported. Nice place to stop over, but no amenities. Owner was pleasant and helpful, the lot was bare, (no trees) but clean, and utilities looked new. A few miles off I-40, but not bad. Watch for the entrance on the left right after Hwy 49 turns left. We came in after dark and it was tough to spot. For what you pay, it was great. We camped at Dub'l R RV Park in a Motorhome.

Dub’l R had no propane available on site, but the owner told me about propane just down the road on the way back to I-30. Easy access for big rigs. The people were very friendly and the price was great. ($1.30 gal)

Cloud Nine Park, Hot Springs, Arkansas

Date of Stay: November, 2014 - $28.00
Overall Rating:      

We have stayed at this park nearly every year since they opened, and after a few hiccups at the beginning (grumpy owners) it?s a great place to stay. The manager is very pleasant and clearly wants visitors to have a worry-free stay. The park is relatively new so all the utilities, electric pedestals, water lines, etc. are first-rate, and the park grounds are well maintained and very clean. The showers are immaculate as well. There?s a community building there and often something social going on ?- when we pulled in we were invited to have cookies!

There?s a walking trail around the park and they have bird feeders around the perimeter, so there is always a variety of songbirds to watch and listen to. The park is elevated from the road, so there is little or no traffic noise and no nearby railroad. We?ve always enjoy our stays there. Be prepared for a steep climb with a couple of sharp turns from the entrance up to the park. (They don?t call it Cloud Nine for nothing.) We camped at Cloud Nine Park in a Motorhome.

Deer Run RV Resort, Crossville, Tennessee

Date of Stay: November, 2014 - $32.00
Overall Rating:      

We were staying for a week, so wanted something quiet and clean. We got all that and much more. This is one of the cleanest, most pleasant parks we have stayed at. This was the off season, so there were few others in the park, but it was evident from the beginning that this is a well-run, meticulously groomed park. The staff was very professional and friendly, and went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. The utilities, electric pedestals, water lines, and sewer hookups were updated and fully functional. Water pressure was good, as was the voltage. I always seem to have problems with Wi-Fi in RV parks, but Deer Run didn?t skimp on access points. We stayed at two different areas in the park (one area was shutting down for the season) and the signal was excellent all the time.

The park is 3 ? miles off the main road, but the quiet was exquisitely worth the drive. Imagine a spot with absolutely no traffic noise and no railroad! We were parked with a nice view of the lake and the only noise was the occasional honking of geese and quacking of ducks. The roads were smooth, and the sites were all squeaky clean. There aren?t enough superlatives for this place. We camped at Deer Run RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Walnut Meadow RV Park, Berea, Kentucky

Date of Stay: November, 2014 - $26.00
Overall Rating:      

You?ve been driving all day, it?s getting late, and you?re tired and desperate for a place to pull off for the night. Walnut Meadow is that kind of place. And that was our situation when we stopped. I rated it ?satisfactory? with that level of desperation in mind. It was after dark, and there was no one in the office when we pulled in. There were no registration forms or park maps, but just what appeared to be a locked night box for late arrivals. The only information was a hand written paper on the door that said, ?If you need assistance?? and had a phone number. I took it to be for emergencies or problems at the sites.

I continued in, expecting to pay in the morning as is the usual practice after hours in the off season. The park was unlighted, and there were no signs or directions. The roads were muddy and a mass of potholes. I crawled along at an idle, the RV bouncing and rocking all the way in. A short way in a woman ran out into the road waving and telling me to stop. She turned out to be the "manager", and I got a polite lecture on ?how it is done here?, and was told that ?everyone" knows that. Seems that she expects everyone to call her at any hour (yes, the number on the door) and took some pride in saying that she has to get up sometimes at 2 am. We?ve been to a lot of RV parks and have never encountered a policy like that.

In the morning it became apparent that the park is in tough shape, appeared that many or most of the occupants are long-term, staying in RVs that didn?t look road worthy. The term ?seedy? comes to mind. The utilities (pedestals and water fixtures) were in bad shape, and the sewer ?connection? was just a pipe at ground level covered by a flat rock. The office and other buildings were in tough shape too. I checked the electric to be sure it was within acceptable voltages and it was OK : 118. I didn?t risk hooking up to the water, and didn?t venture into the shower building, so I can?t rate them. If you can stay awake a little longer ? pass this one by. We camped at Walnut Meadow RV Park in a Motorhome.

Three Springs Campground, Corinth, Kentucky

Date of Stay: September, 2014 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

Beware of this park. Stephen King could have written about this place. First, the access road is essentially a one lane road. (3/4 mile) We met 3 cars on the way in and each one kindly pulled off the road to allow us to get by. We would have given up then, but there was no way to turn around. When we pulled up to the office the place looked run-down, (that’s my charitable assessment) but we had been on the road all day and were ready to stop. Not as ready as we first thought. I asked what was available and was told they had only one pull-through, (I don’t think it qualified) with no sewer (only a dump station at the entrance to the “park”), no cable, and no Wi-Fi (there was a Wi-Fi hotspot near the office). I was asked if my RV had a water pressure regulator. Told that their water pressure was 180 PSI! I respectfully declined to stay. And then the “adventure” began. The only way out was by making a loop though the park, and that required crossing a creek by way of two precarious looking, cracking concrete bridges, barely wide enough to accommodate the RV. With the extra length of the tow dolly (and a turn, naturally) we had mere inches on either side (no curb or guard rail). I considered taking the car off, but just wanted to get out of there, so we inched across, and by Grace the bridge held. There was a huge sigh when we finally reached the main road again. This is one we will not soon forget. Do yourself a favor and pass this one by. We camped at Three Springs Campground in a Motorhome.

Bean Pot Campground, Crossville, Tennessee

Date of Stay: September, 2014 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

An unremarkable park, but the price was reasonable and it had what we needed for our purposes - we were just looking for a place to "hang our hat" while we checked out the Crossville area. Unlike some parks with nary a tree, this one has lots of trees - heavily shaded. On the plus side it kept the rig cooler out of the sun, but it also obscured our satellite signal, (they DO have limited cable), and some days it seemed very dark inside the RV. The roads are gravel and a little tight, and the pedestals and utilities are not recent. The circuit breaker at out first site was defective, and it had no power. They moved us to a second site where we got electric, but the cable didn't work. They ran a longer cable to the adjacent site and then we were OK after that. The staff was helpful and friendly and worked to get things up to speed for us. We found the park to be nice and quiet - most of the time - (more below). They are far enough off the interstate (about a mile) and off the road too, so we were impressed by how quiet the place was. That was until Sunday morning. Then, before dawn at 5am we were awakened by the beeping of heavy equipment backing, and the crashing of stone being dumped into trucks. We discovered that the park backs up to a stone quarry or plant, and we were amazed that they would be at work on Sunday here in the Bible Belt. We had NOT heard any activity before Sunday. Since Sunday we found that the plant is working every day, and starts early. We rise early, so for us it hasn't been a big problem, but during the day there is a lot of truck traffic in and out along the edge of the Bean Pot property. There is a berm along the back property line to attenuate the noise, but it's still there. Final analysis - we'll likely stay here again, but if you're a late sleeper be wary of the potential noise. We camped at Bean Pot Campground in a Motorhome.

Ripplin Waters Campground, Sevierville, Tennessee

Date of Stay: August, 2014 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

Nice park, very friendly and helpful at the front desk. We were met at our site and again were made to feel welcome. We soon realized that location was a big plus. It's just off I-40 before you get too far into the horrendous traffic through Sevierville, Pigeon Forge, and Gatlinburg. Tough enough sitting in traffic in your car, but navigating that congestion with an RV would be much worse. Park was clean, and with our Good Sam card the price was good given the heavy tourist interest. Folks were friendly and we went to a church service at the pavilion sponsored by a local congregation. Only problem was with spotty Wi-Fi performance. I wouldn't be in a hurry to go to that area again, but if we did I'd definitely return to Ripplin. We camped at Ripplin Waters Campground in a Motorhome.

Staunton / Walnut Hills KOA, Staunton, Virginia

Date of Stay: July, 2014 - $35.00
Overall Rating:      

We've been RVing for many years, and this is one of the nicest places we've seen. Check-in was easy and the staff was always pleasant and helpful. The grounds were immaculate and everything seemed to be in good repair. Remarkable for such a large place with so many RV sites, tent sites and cabins. We walked around the park and the small "lake" every day and found it to be a very family-friendly place. Everyone seemed to be having a great time, and they even have a fenced in area for your doggie. Over the weekend the place was full, with mostly VA license plates, which suggests that it's a popular local getaway. We stayed a week and it was $245. This website insisted on a nightly rate and I don't have that - so I divided by 7 - it might be a bit higher. I'd rate the park a 10 but the Wi-Fi in our location was consistently poor. Cable was OK but spare, (not a lot of channels) and some channels were not clear, but if you're coming to be outside and camp I suppose those aren't big problems. They do have a number of newspapers available too. We camped at Staunton / Walnut Hills KOA in a Motorhome.
