Tall Texan Campground, Gunnison, Colorado

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $46.00
Overall Rating:      

Good, quiet location on edge of town--away from highway and on road leading to Crested Butte and beautiful Colorado back country. Pull through sites seem very dense--close together and short with somewhat narrow roads, but enough room to open awnings and use slide outs. All spaces have picnic table and concrete patio. We recommend the dry camping tent area or full hook up sites by the pond--considerably more spacious. Campground has nice added feature of large indoor space--kind of a clubhouse with tables and chairs for informal gatherings. Also has a nice outside covered picnic area for groups. Extra charge for a third adult and another extra charge for an extra vehicle. We camped at Tall Texan Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Cascade Locks / Portland East KOA, Cascade Locks, Oregon

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

The Columbia Gorge is beautiful and worth a stay despite the train noise which is impossible to get away from. At least the KOA is far enough from the interstate so that continual traffic noise is not a problem. Most KOA's we have stayed in are nicer than this location. We were assigned a spot directly across from the pool which was noisy because of malfunctioning equipment. Staff said that would turn the pump off at 10 pm, but did not. Sight was not level. Sites were very close together and not inviting. We saw better sites that were empty as we walked around so we are puzzled that we were assigned this spot. But, it was rainy, and we didn't want to move for just one night stay. Restrooms need updating, and an air ventilating system. We did like the overall feel of the park, as it was more campground than a typical RV park. We camped at Cascade Locks / Portland East KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Close to the marina (but not walking distance) and we found a good brew pub there. Beautiful views of the river from the Marina area. Actually, we saw a small RV park/campground in the Marina area, and we will try to stay there next time in the area. Access is only good for car camping and small RV's/trailers because of the RR underpass which is only access.

Gros Ventre Campground (Concessionaire Operated), Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $39.00
Overall Rating:      

Love this campground and Jackson Hole/Tetons are spectacularly beautiful. We found Gros Ventre campground to be much less crowded than others in Grand Teton or Yellowstone parks. No reservations, but it is very large. Campground is constructed in several loops which definitely minimizes visual impact of so many campsites. Staff recommended we tour the campground, select 2or 3 sites we liked, and return to office for registration. Selecting multiple sites eliminates problem of losing chosen site to another camper. We chose a site with electrical hook up, but only one loop has electricity. No water or sewer hook ups, but dump site with potable water is very convenient--although we had to wait our turn for quite awhile. With senior discount, dry camp sites are only $13/night. All camp sites are either well shaded or have really great views. Campground is on a river with river access for fishing and walking. We will definitely return. We camped at Gros Ventre Campground (Concessionaire Operated) in a Tent Trailer.

Winnemucca / I-80 KOA (formerly I-80 Winnemucca), Winnemucca, Nevada

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

We were happy to find this KOA which is geared to accommodate overnighters. Very efficient check in process. Full KOA amenities, and folks were definitely taking advantage of the nice pool. Restrooms were great. Little dog park was fine if a bit too small for play time. I really think these owners have done their best to provide a decent place to stop in a not very attractive desert area. We would stay again for an over night. We camped at Winnemucca / I-80 KOA (formerly I-80 Winnemucca) in a Travel Trailer.

Steamboat Springs KOA, Steamboat Springs, Colorado

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

This campground is definitely improved this year! Restroom renovation is completed. Because restrooms are heavily used, by mid afternoon they are a little messy, and floors are art. RV spaces are nice--easy leveling and fairly spacious. Best camping however is in the back portion of property which is not accessible to trailers and rV's. Biggest negative is the noise from the highway. We also thought cost on the high side. We probably won't stay again unless we can reserve a space along the river--which is beautiful and would somewhat mask the traffic noise. This is is the best RV option if you want to be close to town, but we wouldn't recommend it if you want to spend time outside relaxing in your camp spot. We camped at Steamboat Springs KOA in a Travel Trailer.

River's Edge at Deer Park, Heber City, Utah

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

We were very happy to find a good RV park just a few miles off of I-80 on a road trip. Location is close to Park City in a beautiful part of Utah. RV spaces were somewhat close but certainly more room than many parks we have stayed in. Overall, River's Edge had lots of open space--lots of grass lawns. It is a trout fishing resort with an easy walk across the street to the river. We were early I year for good fishing, so it was very low key, but probably very busy later in the summer. Resort has lots of cabins as well as the RV spots. Nice trails by the river--good place to get a little exercise with our dog. Restrooms were small but clean and updated. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at River's Edge at Deer Park in a Travel Trailer.

Lost Dutchman State Park, Apache Junction, Arizona

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

Lost Dutchman is one of our very favorite campgrounds. Water and electrical hook ups, but no sewer, although dump station is in campground and easy to use. Older part of the campground has best sites with lots of space, desert plants, good views. Newer areas better for large RV's but spaced closer together. Good walking/hiking trails within the park. Pet friendly. Lots of wildlife including quail and coyotes (serenading us at night.) Many sites with no utilities are available with no reservations. We camped at Lost Dutchman State Park in a Travel Trailer.

5miles to Apache Junction. Close to Mining Csmp Restaurant, with live entertainment several nights a week. Close to a museum and a touristy mining town. The campground is located in a very nice state park with good trails, some scheduled programming. Folks in campground office are very helpful with tips for things to do.

Victorian Acres Campground, Nebraska City, Nebraska

Date of Stay: September, 2014 - $34.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a nice, well kept campground, but we would not stay again because of the highway noise. We like to sit outside in the late afternoon/early evening, and the highway noise was a problem to us. Campground itself is quite large and nicely landscaped. Bathrooms were excellent. TV reception great. Staff very accommodating --immediately available to reset Wi-Fi when we couldn't access it. We camped at Victorian Acres Campground in a Motorhome.

Area's Finest Country View Campground, Ogallala, Nebraska

Date of Stay: September, 2014 - $29.00
Overall Rating:      

Great choice for an overnight when traveling on I-80. Far enough off interstate to minimize traffic noise. Very helpful and friendly staff. Level sites, convenient utilities. Wi-Fi was fine. Cable TV a plus. Restrooms could use updating. Sites basic and close together, but this wasn't a problem for us because park wasn't at all crowded midweek. Very quiet! We would stay again. We camped at Area's Finest Country View Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Mark Twain Cave Campground, Hannibal, Missouri

Date of Stay: September, 2014 - $34.00
Overall Rating:      

We really enjoyed this campground. It is quiet--no traffic noise although only a mile from Hannibal. We stayed mid week, so it was uncrowded, but they apparently fill up on weekends, and the sites might then feel crowded, especially the pull through sites. The overall feel is of a campground rather than an RV park, which we enjoyed. Lots of trees, gravel roads, gravel sites. We had no problem with leveling, but we couldn't connect to water and sewer at the same time because of utility placement. Bonus points from us for the winery that is on site with really nice grounds and outside seating. Also the touring trolley comes to the Cave, which is part of the campground property, so you can go sightseeing without taking your vehicle to town. We recommend this property and would definitely return. We camped at Mark Twain Cave Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Long Lake Park, Lakeville, Ohio

Date of Stay: September, 2014 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

We camped mid-week for one night and were the only campers besides the seasonal occupants. Only a few spots available to overnighters--almost all seasonal in a very large campground. Many units have obviously been there a long time, and condition of seasonal rigs and sites was variable--some beautiful, many not so much. However, we had a nice view of the lake, the location was convenient for sightseeing in Amish country, and campground is very clean. Bathrooms are clean, showers are good. We thought campground was hard to find, and the access road almost discouraged us from entering. We would probably stay at the State Park when returning to this area. We camped at Long Lake Park in a Travel Trailer.

Chautauqua Lake KOA , Dewittville, New York

Date of Stay: September, 2014 - $63.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed in a full hook up back in site that is very large and had a great view of the lake. Fantastic sunset! We stayed during the week and after "the season," so very few people in the park. Plenty of space on grass behind our trailer for all of us to enjoy the view without being overly close to other guests. We opted for the view with no trees, but shaded sites were available. Sites are gravel for rigs and fairly level, and surrounded by grass. Staff escorts to site and helps with back in. This is a very large KOA with perhaps half the sites occupied by seasonal units. Grounds were very well kept and clean. WiFi good. Price includes $16 for two additional adults--basic rate covers only 2 adults. Also reflects KOA membership discount. We would definitely stay again, but not during the busy season. We camped at Chautauqua Lake KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Petoskey KOA, Petoskey, Michigan

Date of Stay: September, 2014 - $53.00
Overall Rating:      

Top of the line KOA. We are not generally KOA campers because we find spaces are too close together. We stayed here to see Petoskey area and because it is off the highway and has cable TV. The back-in spaces towards the back of the park are the most secluded. Many have great trees and shade. We found the staff really accommodating in getting a site that met our needs. The website really describes the choices fairly well. This is a very large RV park so we imagine it is crowded, busy, and somewhat noisy in the summer. But kids should love it because there's so many activities, plus a large swimming pool. The grounds are beautifully kept. Good landscaping and flowers. Seasonal residents are separate. There are some park model units, also separate and very well kept. Just seems like these owners thought of everything to make the stay enjoyable. I would definitely recommend. The higher cost compared to other choices in the area was definitely worth it. We camped at Petoskey KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Markin Glen County Park, Kalamazoo, Michigan

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

This is a great campground for a short stay. Full hookups, plus plenty of TV channels via antenna. No Internet; weak cellular signal. Area is flat and fairly rural. It is small--38 sites that are uniform in size and much larger than expected. Easy to maneuver, and several pull-through sites. Sites all have a paved pad--level and in good shape. 2-3 miles off interstate, so it is a good overnight stop with little traffic noise--although there are trains. It is a county park with good recreational facilities, including a lake with a swimming beach. Great walking paths--paved, and dogs can swim at the far end of the lake. Camp in a west side spot for late afternoon shade. It is probably crowded during the season but very quiet weekdays in September. We camped at Markin Glen County Park in a Travel Trailer.
