Williamsburg / Busch Gardens Area KOA, Williamsburg, Virginia

Date of Stay: November, 2018 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

The fact that the park is in two separate sections was a little confusing because our gps was directing us to the lower section, but you have to check in at the upper section building. There are no amenities available in the lower section this late in the year, except the laundromat, which is $3 per load. The location is convenient to Williamsburg, Jamestown, etc. Staff was great, propane / store available in the upper section, sites were long and narrow. The main problem that we had was with the Verizon cell signal- it was practically nonexistent. The park is deep in a valley, so cell signal is blocked by the terrain. Thankfully, the WiFi was decent for most times of day (except evenings when people were home and using it). We could not rely on cell data and some calls dropped. Also, while I understand that they needed to mow, leaf blow, etc. there were several days when the noise was excessively intrusive and lasted for 6-8 hours. We also had a couple of tense evenings when hurricanes loomed and high winds blew down trees and tree branches in the park. We camped at Williamsburg / Busch Gardens Area KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Driftwood RV Park, Fairhope, Alabama

Date of Stay: March, 2018 - $10.00
Overall Rating:

This is not a "resort" style park. No pool, hot tub, club house, etc. but the price, at less than $300/ month, including cable, reflects that. We chose this park because we stayed for several months (over the winter) and we wanted to be able to install broadband internet, which we did, through Media Com. The park wifi is actually really good, though, so we wouldn't have needed it except to stream video without feeling like we were hogging the bandwidth. The park is all pull-throughs, well-maintained, and the family that owns it is very sweet and easy to work with for getting mail, paying for propane, etc. The gentleman that does the maintenance and the "camp host," who takes care of the laundry room and just generally knows what's what, are just about the friendliest folks around. Quiet, with friendly neighbors, mostly older folks and many who live there year-round. Conveniently located for both Mobile and Gulf Shores, with wonderful winter weather. It was fun to see the neighbor's donkeys and goats, too. We are full-timers and would stay here again in a heartbeat. We camped at Driftwood RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

The Biscuit King is nearby and it is delicious for a breakfast treat. The blueberry biscuit and the "ultimate" breakfast biscuit are great.

Memphis Jellystone Park, Horn Lake, Mississippi

Date of Stay: November, 2017 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

This park is clean, felt safe, conveniently located for trips into Memphis and exploring northern Mississippi. It is obviously very kid-friendly, with a bounce pad and multiple playgrounds, etc. Expect the usual noise of kids at play. The staff were nice and helpful. Nice dog parks. We were staying for a couple of months, so we had AT&T U-Verse come out and hook us up for broadband internet for streaming video and working online. My only complaint is with the reservations process. Since we are full-timers and stay for extended stays, we like to know for sure that we will have a site when we arrive. When I called many months ahead, I was placed on a "wait-list" but assured that something would open up. I called about three months ahead to see what the status was and was told that they lost the wait list, but that they could put me in for a reservation at that time. Then, about a week before our stay was to begin, they called to say that a space had opened up and was ready for our arrival. I explained that we had a reservation for a week from then, for two months, already set. They said they had no record of it. A few panicked moments set in, while we realized that they had confused my records with another guest with the same last name, and had cancelled my reservation. Fortunately, they would still be able to accommodate us. I had requested, at each call, a site that had the ability to be hooked up to AT&T (in the back of the park), and preferred a pull-thru. When we arrived, they had us assigned to a back-in, directly next to the bouncing kid thing, in the front of the park where there was no AT&T. Luckily for us, someone was just pulling out of a site back-in site in the back of the park, so we were able to take that site, but it was more than a little frustrating. We won't be staying at anymore Jellystones, simply because they do not have a reliable reservations system. We camped at Memphis Jellystone Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Silver City RV Resort, Minden, Nevada

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $16.00
Overall Rating:

This park is in a great location for viewing the majestic mountains in the area, and seeing the sunrise over the Sierras each morning was a treat. It's close enough to Tahoe and Carson. The pool is warm and, when it is working/open, the hot tub is large and comfortable. It's very nice that the pool and tub are covered, so you don't have to worry about sunburn. The highway noise is a bit of an inconvenience for light sleepers, but we got used to it. This park does have a bit of a "parking lot" feel, but again, the location is good. My only real complaint was that, while they do accept mail delivery in the office, which is open to the gas station customers, it wasn't reliable. I had several items of mail go missing, and I have no idea if it was stolen from the open mail area in the gas station, or if the post office didn't recognize the address. Either way, the mail never made it back to the senders and I never received it. So, if you are going to be here for long enough to receive mail, I would rent a mailbox at the UPS store, or get a PO box. Packages did arrive safely, and were held behind the counter in the gas station for pick-up. I've never had any mail go missing in 3 years of travel (we have a mail forwarding service out of SD, as we full-time) until we had it forwarded here. We camped at Silver City RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Lakeside RV and Campground, Provo, Utah

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

We were hoping that this one night stay-over would provide us with info on whether we would want to stay for an extended stay here next summer. What we learned is that this park can't accommodate big rigs for monthly stays, and also that the park is full of long-term, permanent residents in run-down old rigs prepared for winter temps. The roads and sites were big enough for bigger rigs, although the sites shared the utility area, so you would be backed right up to your rear side neighbor. We camped at Lakeside RV and Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Blue Mountain RV Park, Blanding, Utah

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

We stayed here for a week while we explored the greater Moab area. Great park for big rigs - wide turns, large sites. The guy who checked us in was very friendly, inviting us to use the newly created fire pit area at the rear of the park. It was well-maintained, quiet and no frills, just what we needed. The only downside was that the rigs park opposite each other and share the utility area, which means being sort of close to the rear side neighbor, but it wasn't a problem at all. This park was nicer and more professional looking than any other park in the area. We camped at Blue Mountain RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

There is a little cliff dwelling that you can go see just behind the park. Turn on the first road north of the park and take it to the dead end, where you will see the Five Kivas cliff dwelling. Pop's burritos, just up the road has excellent breakfast and regular burritos.

Jim & Mary's RV Park, Missoula, Montana

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $31.00
Overall Rating:

We have been full-timers for over two years now, staying at many parks throughout the country and this was the best park that we have stayed in so far. It is not a "resort" type park, no pool or playgrounds, but it is so well-maintained and beautiful. Flowers and plantings at every turn. It is huge and perfect for even the biggest rigs (ours is 43 ft). It is family-owned and the management and staff are absolutely wonderful and felt like old friends even though we just met. The park was quiet, except for occasional trains passing. Our only disappointment was that there was no landline cable available, so that we could have broadband internet and phone connected through the cable company (as I mentioned, we full-time, which means that we try to get broadband when possible for work). They have a decent wifi set-up, great Verizon signal and a satellite cable system that is then run out to the sites for cable tv. The thing that appreciated most about the management is that, even though they simply could not offer us the option of calling the cable company for broadband, they were understanding of why I was asking, and sincerely assured me that the Verizon signal was good so that I could use a hotspot when the wifi didn't cut it. Also, they were very attentive whenever the cable or wifi was fuzzy or slow, getting it up and running immediately. The park is well-situated for day trips all over NW Montana, a good jumping off point for Glacier NP, great for being close to Missoula. We camped at Jim & Mary's RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

The bakery at the Muralt's Truck stop has amazing cinnamon rolls for breakfast. There is a lovely park to take the dogs at Council Grove State Park (no fee, day park) or Jacob's Island dog park. The Ninepipes Museum is worth a trip up into the Flathead Reservation.

Lakewood RV Park, White City, Oregon

Date of Stay: May, 2016 - $15.00
Overall Rating:

We chose this park because it offers monthly rates and allows users to have broadband cable hooked up at the site. There is no wifi and occasionally weak cell signal in the park. Pros: site manager is very pro-active, involved and friendly, maintenance crew is great, park is quiet, well-maintained. Cons: stray cats in the park, with their urinating/defecating and fighting were a slight nuisance. There are a lot of long-term residents and some of the rigs are showing age. The area is industrial and there was some noise at night related to industrial activities. The area around the park has a lot of transient / drug user folks passing through, although we did not have any problems with theft and never felt unsafe. Overall, though, it was a fairly convenient location for visiting attractions in Southern Oregon, such as Crater Lake, while still being close to Medford. It is in a semi-rural area with a beautiful view of Mt McLoughlin and quaint ranches with mini-horses and goats, etc. Even though we weren't sure what to think when we first arrived, and this place is not a "resort" type park, we would stay here again. Our three months here were pleasant and fit our needs well. We camped at Lakewood RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Santee Lakes Recreation Preserve, Santee, California

Date of Stay: November, 2015 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

Nice looking park, with day use area, lakes, etc. No off-leash dog park. Nice sized sites, easy to maneuver. Reviews mentioning ants and dirt on sites are true. Sites are dirty/muddy and would be better with gravel. We had to put hoses/cords up to avoid creating bridges for ants and put diatomaceous earth around our tires/levels to keep them out. Wifi is decent, Tengo. We had AT&T come out and install U-verse for internet broadband and phone, which works well. Verizon coverage is horrible here, luckily we have a Verizon Net Extender that works through the internet cable to give us coverage. Park has mail, laundry, pools, camper access gate with code, etc. Close enough to San Diego metro area, trolley, etc. We camped at Santee Lakes Recreation Preserve in a Fifth Wheel.

Overall Rating:

Large, easy to maneuver sites, dog park, cable channels (we had Comcast/Xfinity out to hook up broadband internet and phone, although park wifi was pretty good), mail, laundry rooms, pool. Breakfast for nightly campers. Hot tub was a little less appealing than some other resort-style parks, but sufficient. Nice location, on the West Mesa, for heading into the city or out into the desert. Nice views of sunrise/set. We camped at American RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Stony Fork Creek RV Park, Candler, North Carolina

Date of Stay: August, 2014 - $17.00
Overall Rating:

As new full-timers, we were so glad to have found this beautiful little park. The owner is so friendly and helpful, which has made our transition to RV living very pleasant. It is very quiet and peaceful here, especially because of the creek and the fact that it borders the National Forest land. Butterflies, hummingbirds, turtles, etc. The trees that were a problem on the road in have now been trimmed by NCDOT. There are no bathrooms/showers. We have had broadband cable and phone hooked up through the cable company, since we are staying for a few months, and use a Verizon "Net Extender" through the cable to give us cell coverage. Otherwise, there is no wifi or cell coverage out here. We can receive mail here. The sites are ample for our big rig, slides and temporary dog fence area. There is even some landscaping between sites to offer more privacy. Very well maintained. We camped at Stony Fork Creek RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
