About Jim Lee

I'm a retired 6th grade teacher and my wife is a retired nurse. We travel about 4-5 months a year. We like forest service camps, BLM camps and NPS camps. I have never gotten the hang of using that reserve America program for NPS so we aim for walkup camps. We use passport America and Good Sam. Also the senior park pass.

Very Clean park, buy 6 nights, get seventh free. Good wifi , water pressure, electric and sewer. Old KOA camp so spots are close. But not too close. Owners and staff professional and very friendly and courteous. Lots of seasonals in here. Park is very clean. spots are raked and watered as soon as someone vacates. We would stay here again. Convenient to shopping. We camped at Valley Sunset RV Ranch in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

we had a nice stay here. One day drove up the Grand Mesa scenic highway. When we got just past Mesa CO, we turned around and drove it the other way. Great views both ways. Gunnison Black Canyon was another great drivce. The Grand Mesa drive was scenic mountain meadows and trees. The Black Canyon was very deep and rugged. We drove the south rim road. Had our brakes fixed at a local shop..very good service, got us in and out, fast and reasonable.

Nice clean NFS campground. We were in spot #30, on the secluded electrical loop. Vault restrooms very clean and odor free. Showers were fifty cents and lots of hot water. We would stay here again.

Shady Grove Campground, Seibert, Colorado

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

This is a nice clean camp perfect for overnighters. We stayed two days. Spots are level and the new owners are very helpful. The place is clean. A soon as one trailer left, a few minutes later another one pulled. We like this place. the grocery store down the street is ok, not a Dillon's but sufficient for the town. WIFI is strong on our Airstream with a booster. Others had no problem. We could camp here again. Pretty nice. We camped at Shady Grove Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Nice little park. Spot 5 has the best shade, 6 is ok,,, we camped here before and liked it. Clean. Quiet. Nice to listen to the kids playing in the pool. We picked up wifi from somewhere that worked on my computer but not on wife's ipad, she used LTE. Some noise from the grain elevator or power plant but it is like white noise. Didn't bother us.

Forbes Landing RV Park, Topeka, Kansas

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $36.00
Overall Rating:      

Level gravel pull through spots. couldn't get on the wifi... Airstream wiht our computers but ipads did fine. We visited some friends who were staying in the park which contributed to the excellent rating. $36 with PA, $40 without. Park was full, we had the last space. Behind Super 8 motel, it was a clean park and the full timers were clean and picked up. The spots are close together. It was close to Topeka and hte cost reflected that. We camped at Forbes Landing RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Anderson RV lot and store just down the road. They have a large assortment of parts. I liked being able to browse. The sales woman was very friendly and helpful. She knows her trailers! I was able to get several parts I needed for our Thetford sewer couplers.

Overall Rating:      

Nice park, wide spaces, we were in a back in, no problem for us, they do have pull throughs. Cable tv is good, Like a previous reviewer, we only got 10 or 12 snowy channels then I remembered to turn my antenna booster off. We got all the channels. We have no complaints, We would stay here again. Main office people very helpful. wifi is good. We camp in an Airstream and always ask for a spot close to the wifi tower. Most camps accomodate our requests. We camped at Colorado Landing in a Travel Trailer.

Angels in Goliad RV Park, Goliad, Texas

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

The RV Park has excellent wifi, cable tv with premium channels---the shady spots were all taken. But, 2 out of 3 ain't bad at all! We like this park and keep extending our stay. Lights, water, sewer all included. No swimming pool, no rec hall, no showers or bathrooms..but we're in a self contained Airstream so not a problem. Would we stay here again? Yes. They have pull thru and back in sites. We chose a back in to be close to the wifi tower. Good wifi, sites were gravel and level, we needed no blocking. Pretty nice park with friendly owners. We camped at Angels in Goliad RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

About two miles south of town is Goliad State Park. Across the street from the state park is a monument to the 400 Texicans who were massacred in 1836 during the war for Texas Independence. The Angel of Goliad was a Mexican woman who risked her life saving about 80 Texicans from sure death. Quite inspiring. Dollar General, Grocery Store, What a Burger (24/7) and some local restaurants in town, 25 miles to Victoria

Stayed here for 5 days. Very quiet park.... imagine a 1960s park with shade trees, good wifi, cable tv, laundry and concrete pads. We like this kind of parks. On site owner runs an RV repair service which is a nice touch. Pretty nice. My wife and I like these old fashioned trailer camps... they are out there and they are a gem to find.

Dark gravel parking, spots slope down hill, front of 31' trailer is higher than I like. Front stabilizers needed blocking as did front jack. Electricity is good, water is good, campground furnishes hose and pigtail for electricity. Water pressure is good. Nice place, left side of trailer faces west so hot afternoon sun shines right on refrigerator. Nice place, would stay here again. We camped at Pie Town RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Hoh Rain Forest, Forks, Washington

Date of Stay: September, 2015 - $10.00
Overall Rating:      

I like the system used for determining if a spot is occupied, provided the occupant puts his card in the right slot. We found an empty spot (80), parked our 31' trailer in there. Someone had put their card for spot 88 in spot 80 slot. Camp host said we'd have to move. Moved to spot 39, had hard time leveling because the pea gravel kept sliding my leveling boards. Camp host was very helpful. Typical NPS park. Lots of shade and quiet.

Paved roads on all the loops. Some spots were near the river but you had to get their early to get them. First come first served campground. We camped at Hoh Rain Forest in a Travel Trailer.

The hikes from the visitor center are nice and well marked. Visitor center is in trailer temporarily. I liked the system for selecting a spot if it is done correctly. drawback: 18 miles to highway then 12 miles to Forks for grocery store. Get your groceries and Ice before you leave Fork.
