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.

Oasis RV Resort, Amarillo, Texas

Date of Stay: October, 2016 - $32.00
Overall Rating:      

Easy in and out with paved roads and good sized concrete sites. Good utilities. Didn't use their cable but had no problems getting satellite. There is no fenced dog run but a grassy area near the road for the pups on leash. There are two dings on an otherwise great place - the smell and the wifi. There are stockyards a few miles up the road and a westerly wind brings you that wonderful smell. The wifi is typical campground - worthless even for email or facebook but Verizon 4G is good. I would rather campgrounds just not offer wifi. Having said all that, I would stay again....after checking the wind! We camped at Oasis RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Cochiti Lake COE , Pena Blanca, New Mexico

Date of Stay: October, 2016 - $10.00
Overall Rating:      

A nice COE campground. Roads and sites are paved with some fairly level and others not so much. The park is popular and weekends it is hard to find a spot for larger rigs. Buffalo loop has water and 50 amp. Satellite reception is good and Verizon 4G is OK. We stayed 3 nights staging for the Albuquerque Balloon Festival and it is convenient for that. The park could do a better job of marking the roads. We had trouble finding Buffalo Loop and saw many others driving around looking for their site and others trying to find the road out! I mentioned this to the folks at the visitor center and they seemed to care less. We would stay here again. We camped at Cochiti Lake COE in a Motorhome.

Raton Pass Camp and Cafe (Formerly Cedar Rail), Raton, New Mexico

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

Typical RV park good for an overnighter. Pull through site was barely long enough for our 40' MH and very narrow. Sitting on the patio, your neighbor's sewer is right there. Surpisingly decent wifi and iffy Verizon signal. Power hookup is close to the ground making it difficult to hookup my EMS. No dog run that I found.

Pikes Peak RV Park, Manitou Springs, Colorado

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

As others have said, spaces are tight but they help you get parked and set up. The entrance is down a hill off the highway, and across a narrow bridge. Getting back out was a bit of a challenge reversing that process. Not a lot of room to manuever with a big rig and toad. You can work it,but things are pretty tight. Our site was fairly level but I saw other that had their front wheels off the ground. No wifi but Verizon 4G was good. No dog walk on site but a back gate lets you into the city park. Water was shared and I had to run my hose under my rig since the hookup was on passenger side. Power hook ups are a bit strange as my 50 amp hookup was in my neighbor's space. It all worked though and from what I saw driving around the area, this place is one of the better ones. Close to attractions. I would stay again. We camped at Pikes Peak RV Park in a Motorhome.

RedRock RV Park, Island Park, Idaho

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $56.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a quiet, park nestled in the hills near Henry's Lake. Friendly owners and camp hosts. The sites are large enough for your unit and arranged such that everyone has a good size patch of grass between you and your neighbor. They could stand to refresh the gravel at the sites as most of it is worn down to dirt and makes a mess when it rains. Access is fairly easy. Good size area to walk the dogs on leash. Utilities are good except for wifi. When we checked in, they bragged about how great the wifi is. We were then cautioned not to exceed the 500 Meg daily limit or we would be cut off. No danger of that happening. The signal is constantly dropping out and trying to reconnect. Inside, outside, it doesn't matter. Verizon signal is also marginal so if internet is important, you might want to look elsewhere. We actually left a day early and could not get any refund. We camped at RedRock RV Park in a Motorhome.

Heyburn Riverside RV Park, Heyburn, Idaho

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $21.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed one night in this park on our way to Yellowstone. What a great little city park at a great price! We were in site 16, a pull through. The sites all have concrete curbing that kind of makes it difficult to maneuver in a big rig, but its not a major issue if you go slow. Also be aware, that some of the sites have the sewer connection all the way at the rear. When we pulled forward in our site enough to get the toad the out of the road, there is no way my 20' of sewer hose would reach, so we had to unhook the toad and back up. On the plus side, there was enough room for two cars to park at the rear of our site. Each site has a picnic table and nice little grassy area. Campers are not packed on top of each other.

There is a great little city park and river walk on the Snake river. Wifi was pretty good and OTA tv was also good. We camped at Heyburn Riverside RV Park in a Motorhome.

Deschutes County Fair & Expo RV Park, Redmond, Oregon

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

Great, fairly new park near Redmond. Everything is paved and we our site, A9, was a large pull through, with concrete patio and toad parking area, and even the area around the utilities was paved. We also had a large patch of grass on both sides of our rig, A9 and A 10 are probably the two best sites in the park. No fire rings but that can be a good thing. Each site has a picnic table. No cable or wifi but satellite is no problem since the shade trees are smallish and Verizon 4G was strong. Plenty of areas to walk the dogs with several poop disposal stations scattered around.
