Elkhart Campground, Elkhart, Indiana

Date of Stay: April, 2018 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

Access from the highway is easy down a bumpy road. Interior roads were fairly easy to navigate to our large (length wise) pull thru site. Sites are pretty close side to side but adequate. Utilities are solid with typical slow to non- existent camp ground wifi. Check in was easy but not overly friendly. There is a LARGE dog park at the end of the pull throughs. They were working in other areas placing fresh gravel, and there was evidence of preparing to plant spring flowers. I would stay again if in the area. We camped at Elkhart Campground in a Motorhome.

Grandma's RV Camping, Shepherdsville, Kentucky

Date of Stay: April, 2018 - $32.00
Overall Rating:

Signs leading to the campground could be a lot better. We kinda stumbled on the place and thats a bit unnerving going down a narrow road and not sure if the campground is there. Once on site, access is fairly easy and straght forward. Sites are level and certainly not spacious but OK for an over nighter. Utilities are good but placed too far to the rear for a large motorhome towing to hook up sewer without dropping the toad. They have wifi but we never could find it on our iPads so we used our Verizon. Sites are open so satellite was easy. It is clear they allow, but really don't want, dogs in the park. An entire page of pet rules, numerous signs threatening expulsion and a dog walk in a grassy area beside a paved road conveys the message pretty clearly. I've certainly paid more and stayed in worse. We camped at Grandma's RV Camping in a Motorhome.

Monte Sano State Park, Huntsville, Alabama

Date of Stay: April, 2018 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

Roads outside the park are a bit of a challenge with hills, narrow lanes, low hanging utility lines and tree limbs....and this is on the "easy" way in! But once you get there, the park is great. Interior roads are easy to navigate, and sites are angled for easy access. Utilities worked but our 30 amp connection had a loose ground wire and had to be repaired. Also, had to remove my Progressive EMS because of a grounding issue. Sites are good sized and placed so that you have some privacy. We was able to get satellite TV with our Traveller but the trees were just putting out their leaves. I doubt satellite would be possible in the summer, however, you can get some stations over the air out of Huntsville. Verizon service was spotty but we managed with our booster. We camped at Monte Sano State Park in a Motorhome.

Arkadelphia Campground, Arkadelphia, Arkansas

Date of Stay: April, 2018 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

An old KOA that needs some TLC. This could be a great place with just a little work. Things look old, worn, and broke down. The utilities were solid but the cable was ....broken. Wifi was typical campground. Things just need some cleaning and a coat of paint. A good bit of road noise from I30. OK for an ovetnight but thats it.

Circus Circus RV Park (formerly Las Vegas / Circus Circus KOA), Las Vegas, Nevada

Date of Stay: April, 2018 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

This park is located on the Las Vegas strip so the location is the main attraction. It is basically a paved lot with hook ups. If you have kids, the water park, and Adventure Dome would be a lot of fun for them. The facility, (RV Park, hotels, casino, public areas, etc.), is old and needs some update. There is trash and dog poop every where you look. Getting in and out is a bit of a challenge since the roads are not well marked and once in the park, it is up to you figure out where registration is -( hint: it is at the opposite end from where you come in with no designated parking area for registration. Just put it in the road and block everyone else.) The largest sites they have are tight for our 40' and parking the toad was also a challenge. Utilities worked well. If it wasn't for the location, I would not return. We camped at Circus Circus RV Park (formerly Las Vegas / Circus Circus KOA) in a Motorhome.

Midland RV Campground, Midland, Texas

Date of Stay: April, 2018 - $34.00
Overall Rating:

Stopped over for one night while traveling and felt fortunate to find a place to stay. The oil boom has RV sites at a premium in this area and most sites are taken up by "residents". The park is nice enough with long level pull-thrus for travelers. Staff is friendly and give an escort to the site. Utilities were solid even in the 94* heat and everyone's air conditioner running. We are traveling East and followed our GPS to Industrial drive. While passable, this road is TERRIBLE. Be sure and follow the Park's directions for getting there. I would have given a higher rating but the park is right beside the busy Interstate 20 and there is a lot of road noise. Having said that, I would stay here again. We camped at Midland RV Campground in a Motorhome.

Brushcreek Falls RV Resort, Princeton, West Virginia

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $55.00
Overall Rating:

This is a fairly new campground that is filling a void for camping in the Princeton area. The county road getting in is a bit tight for a big rig and some low hanging branches make you wince as you drive under them. I mentioned this to the owners and she said they have talked to the county about getting them trimmed. Seems the county would bend over backwards to help support a new business in this area as the economy continues to be tough. There are also some low branches in the campground itself and they " are working on them". The sites are marginally level for a big rig. The utilities seem to be solid and the wifi is great! Other campgrounds could take a lesson on this. There is some road noise but it isn't bothersome. They have a nice resturant on site and go kart races at the dirt track on site. The park and the resturant are a bit overpriced but they are the best game in town so I understand. We will stay here again when we travel this area.

Bear Paw RV Park (Was East Branch River RV Park), Tawas City, Michigan

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

Nice large fairly level sites with shade. Utilities worked well although water pressure was a bit low and the spigot leaked. Everything was well groomed and maintained. Easy access for big rigs. Owners are on site and seem to be great people. The only ding is the typical very poor campground wifi. When they tell you it works sometimes in some places, you know its gonna stink. Just fix it or don't advertise it. Verizon was borderline with in and out 3G. All in all a good stop for a couple nights. We camped at Bear Paw RV Park (Was East Branch River RV Park) in a Motorhome.

Fairfield Bay Campground, Fairfield Bay, Arkansas

Date of Stay: April, 2017 - $1.00
Overall Rating:

Called and made reservations for three days and was very specific that we have a 40 foot coach with toad. This place is NOT big rig friendly so we didn't stay. Access roads are paved and OK but then you get to the dirt/gravel loop roads and you find sharp curves, steep grades, unlevel sites, and trees close to and overhanging the roads. We looked in C loop and A loop and decided to leave. Stay away if you value your rig. We camped at Fairfield Bay Campground in a Motorhome.

Golden Pond RV Park, Shirley, Arkansas

Date of Stay: April, 2017 - $21.00
Overall Rating:

Fairly easy access for a big rig. Pull thru Sites are long and the surface is very large gravel and while good for parking, is hard to walk on. Several long term residents, and a couple of them are kinda junky and makes the rest of the park look bad. Electric is solid and the wifi actually works! They have cable with several stations but the picture quality is not good. I hooked up my satellite after one night. New owners are working on things and one day will get there, but right now it is a work in progress. Having said that,it is the best place to stay in this area. We camped at Golden Pond RV Park in a Motorhome.

Lake Sweetwater Municipal Park, Sweetwater, Texas

Date of Stay: November, 2016 - $1.00
Overall Rating:

This place is a few miles off the interstate and signs are few and far between however the GPS coordinates were spot on. Roads and sites are gravel. Sites are just kind of scattered around in amongst the trees. You find power (30 & 50 amp) and water that are close to one of the wide spots, park and hook up! Most areas are level and range in size from small to huge. No problem finding an open spot for satellite and Verizon 4G was strong. Very quiet sparsley populated with campers. Great place for an overnight stop to get away from the interstate noise. We camped at Lake Sweetwater Municipal Park in a Motorhome.

Dallas Northeast Campground (formerly Dallas Northeast/Caddo Mills KOA, Caddo Mills, Texas

Date of Stay: November, 2016 - $38.00
Overall Rating:

Stopped here for a couple nights to visit friends. Surprised to hear they were nearly full. Lots of monthly rentals left only 3 sites for travelers. Sites are OK with some much better than others. Concrete patio and picnic table have seen better days but we didn't need them so it wasn't a problem. Utilities are good but typical worthless campground wifi. No cable but OTA and satellite tv is OK. Verizon 4G worked OK. Nice pool, playground, lake, and green space. Not a bad stop if visiting the area if you get one of the better sites.

Scenic Mountain RV Park & Campground, Milledgeville, Georgia

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

We returned to Scenic Mountain after a year traveling and we immediately noticed a difference. The crew continue to improve an already great place. Sites are now more level and many of them have been extended in length and width to handle larger rigs and give you more room to park. Distance between sites is way more than your typical RV park. Some sites have concrete patios. They have added a clubhouse and the office received a new attractive facade. Full hook up utilities continue to work well. Sites range from full sun to partial shade. We used our satellite dish for tv but cable is available. Wifi is typical for a campground and Verizon 4G is strong. Best place to stay in this area!

Elijah Clark State Park, Lincolnton, Georgia

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

We made our second trip to ECSP this October. Paved roads with large, gravel sites and good distance between them. There are sites right on the lake and others off the water and under the pine/hardwood forest, so you can find what you want. Electric and water only with limited 50 amp sites (Most 50 amp sites are in campground #1). There is a convenient dump on site. This state park also has cable TV! Wifi at the office only, but Verizon 4G is good. There are playgrounds for the kids, putt putt, canoe and kayak rentals, ranger programs, fishing, archery, etc. They also have 20+ cabins the rent and a couple of lodge type structure that can be rented. All of this is located about 30 miles northwest of Augusta GA on Clark Hill Reservoir. We camped at Elijah Clark State Park in a Motorhome.

U.S. Space & Rocket Center RV Park, Huntsville, Alabama

Date of Stay: November, 2016 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

Small campground with full hook up sites located on the campus of the space center. Surprising to see several units that had the "long term" look. The park is showing its age with some of the asphalt crumbling in some of the sites, doors hanging loose or off of pedestals, etc. Utilities were good though and for the price, it is a good place to hang out a couple nights in the area. No dog park but plenty of open space to walk them. Verizon 4G was adequate. We camped at U.S. Space & Rocket Center RV Park in a Motorhome.
