Camp Pet-O-Se-Ga, Alanson, Michigan

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

THE GOOD: Very clean and well maintained park. Price was for 50 amp, FHU site. $5 less for 30 amp, no sewer sites. No additional sales taxes or fees. 5 pull thru sites, which are ~90' long and 45' wide, asphalt sites and 10'x20' concrete patio area, nice firepit, and satellite friendly. The water/30 amp only sites are also nice, typically gravel, well shaded, and well spaced. Restrooms and shower facilities are newer, clean and well maintained. 6 miles of hiking trails, lakefront beach and other amenities discussed in prior reviews are also nearby and well maintained. Several nearby lakes for kayaking, paved bike trails in nearby Alanson and Petosky. THE BAD: The roads to the park are in serious need of attention. Been on worse, but still in bad shape. Not the park's fault obviously. What is in the park's control is the pruning of trees along internal roadways. The are well cleared for most travel trailers and smaller motorhomes. However, if you are 45' long and 13' high, you may want to book a FHU pull-thru or check to see if they have recently pruned the trees along the interior roads of the wooded sites. Many of the wooded sites themselves are plenty wide & deep enough for big rigs, just may scrape a few branches getting to them. We camped at Camp Pet-O-Se-Ga in a Motorhome.

Rifle Gap State Park - Lakeview Loop, Rifle, Colorado

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

Easy access and maneuvering within park for 45' MH. Little to no shade. If reserving a site, use Google Earth to determine which sites have covered picnic tables (not sure why some sites have covered tables and others don't, but with lack of shade trees, you will appreciate the cover). Water pressure is real low, so simply fill your fresh water tank and run off your water pump. Host informed me they use a RO system (so water is good quality) but use 3 lift pumps to get the water to the Lakeview campground and struggle to maintain pressure, especially if the campground is full. Our Rand McNally GPS took us to the Rifle Correctional Facility instead of the campground. Follow the signs to the Visitor Center (no signs for 'campground') and you will be fine, as you check in at the visitor center. If crossing the dam, you will go over short 1 lane bridge marked 20 ton weight limit. Our 26 ton MH was fine, so don't worry. Interior roads are asphalt and pads are concrete. Everything was well maintained. We camped at Rifle Gap State Park - Lakeview Loop in a Motorhome.

Valley RV Park, Buena Vista, Colorado

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $34.00
Overall Rating:      

The positives: 1) Fairly decent spacing between sites for a private park. 2) Quality on-site management. 3) 10% discount for cash or check. The negatives: 1) dirt roads and on windy days, dust is flying everywhere. We never opened our windows - just used A/C to avoid the dust storms trashing the interior. 2) taller rigs have challenges avoiding low tree limbs overhanging interior roads. Management doesn't really care to trim them higher for the big rigs as I assume they don't get too many of us. Trailers, or folks not concerned about brushing against tree limbs should have no problem, and larger rigs can maneuver around limbs, sometimes having to drive a little into other's sites to avoid them, but doable. Not sure I saw anything better in the area (sad), and definitely saw worse. Miscellaneous comments: Did not use public restrooms or laundry facilities so cannot rate/review. Pull thru site was not designed for big rigs due to tight back to back turns. No big deal as easy back in. We camped at Valley RV Park in a Motorhome.

Roadrunner RV Park, Santa Fe, New Mexico

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $31.00
Overall Rating:      

Rate was with 10% GoodSam discount. No sales or lodging tax. Campground is simply a flat gravel/dirt parking lot with no trees or amenities, located along the access road to US 285. On the positive side, each site is easy access for big rigs and all sites are pull-thrus with FHU. I would guess all sites are approx 30'x70', so spacing is better than most parks like this and you probably won't have to disconnect it simply stopping for the night. However, since it is basically a dirt/gravel parking lot, I doubt you will be spending much time outside on your site.

This park is convenient as a base to Sante Fe, Bandelier, National Forest trails, casinos, etc. If you can, get a site in row 6 (600 series site numbers), at least the front windows of your motorcoach will have desert views and you will be furthest from Highway 285. The on site manager is friendly and helpful. I would stay here again if passing thru the area, as the price is fine for 50 amp FHU. We camped at Roadrunner RV Park in a Motorhome.

Orange City RV Resort, Orange City, Florida

Date of Stay: March, 2017 - $41.00
Overall Rating:      

Very tight sites, narrow interior roads and less than ideal for a 45' MH. I elected to back out of our pull thru site instead of asking 2-3 people to move their cars that are forced to stick out in the drive due to short site lengths. Lots of seasonal campers (not sure the attraction). Some even host yard sales at their sites. Park was relatively quiet at night though. We camped at Orange City RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Blythe Island Regional Park Campground, Brunswick, Georgia

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

FHU Pull thru sites easily accommodated our 45' MH. Nice site spacing and well treed. Convenient to both Jekyll Island and St Simon Island as well as the town of Brunswick. Only thing that disappointed me was that the sites were dirt. No rain during our stay, but can get a little dusty. Nice lake on site for fishing or kayaking and probably 6-10 miles of hiking and biking (off-road) trails. We camped at Blythe Island Regional Park Campground in a Motorhome.

WillowWind RV Park, Hurricane, Utah

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

The good: Concrete roads and pads; plenty of sites with shade, ok, not great, spacing between sites - but still a nice grass area; convenient to store, cinema, etc.; clean sites and facilities; cable supposedly was pretty good, but we used our satellite dish (one of the few sites that a roof mounted satellite would work).

The not so good: hellacious speed dip shortly after entering park (secure your belongings, including dentures, or you could loose them); not very accommodating to RV'er desires (ex. hours for common areas are when most folks are away at Zions or elsewhere, owners instruct post office not to deliver any package that has a tenant's name on it, but to return it to the post office - good luck getting something sent by mail. If shipped by FedEx, they have the driver leave it at your site instead of holding in the office - better hope for no rain or high winds, etc. ) most trees are trimmed to 12' or so from the ground, so taller RVs will brush branches; Cottonwood trees shed like crazy in May - looked like it was snowing at my site the entire time I was there; wifi was often slow; no picnic table or fire pit. We camped at WillowWind RV Park in a Motorhome.

Probably 40 minute drive to Zions - the return drive gets old after a few days of long hikes. Would recommend a closer park if you are going to Zions for more than a couple of days - otherwise OK.

Fort Mountain State Park, Chatsworth, Georgia

Date of Stay: March, 2016 - $29.00
Overall Rating:      

Warning - do not attempt to stay here in a larger rig. This site accurately states the park is not big rig friendly, but the Georgia State Park website states there are 42 sites that will accept up to a 50' trailer or motorhome. Due to the contradiction, we called the park directly and they said no problem for our 45' DP. Should have listened to the other reviewer on this site that said don't bother with a 38' plus rig. Reservations are not site specific, and at the time we were here, we could pick from just about any site. My wife and I drove around for 30 minutes in our toad and finally selected a site we could make it into (barely) but could not fully level the motorhome without a tire or 2 in the air. Anyway, we made it in without using KY jelly on the sides of the rig, but did have my wife as a spotter on several campground turns as well as backing into the site. Again, this was the site we selected - had it not been available, I'm not sure I would have even tried too many others (unlevel, difficult access for longer rigs, etc.). Now for the good - if you are a smaller unit - sites are well spaced and woodsy. Nice trails, decent lake for kids to swim or canoe, a typical but nice state park. I would return if I had a much smaller rig. We camped at Fort Mountain State Park in a Motorhome.

Shin Pond Village Campground, Patten, Maine

Date of Stay: August, 2015 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

Cost is a guess, as I do not remember. No real discounts available (GS, PA, etc.) This park is older and very basic. Grass sites that aren't necessarily level, older electric, no sewer and dump station access can easily be blocked by cars in parking lot or gas pump. Hard to find and inconvenient dumpster location (in some adjacent field but hidden from site). Old electric, and only 30 amp. A single A/C drawing 13 amps would drop voltage from 120 to 108. We switched sites and still had problems. I would not return with a large rig unless they made substantial improvements (which the don't seem interested in doing). Rough roads getting to the park, but this is common in the interior of ME. On the positive side, Bathrooms were clean, people were nice, and park is 20 minutes from north entrance to Baxter State Park. We camped at Shin Pond Village Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

On the Saco Family Campground (formerly Shannon's Saco River Sanctuary, Brownfield, Maine

Date of Stay: July, 2015 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

Rate is based on memory (so may be off). Nice privately owned and managed campground. Owners are on site, friendly and ensure everything runs smoothly. This is not the place if you don't like observing quiet hours or need modern resort facilities (no pools or arcades). Park is well laid out, has adequate spacing between sites and all sites back to a real large common area (probably 200'x150' or so). They rent kayaks and canoes and provide river shuttle service. They have a small store and game room, nothing fancy though.

Roads and sites are packed gravel and fairly level. Water, sewer, electric, and Wi-Fi worked fine. If we were returning to the area, we would definitely stay here again. We camped at On the Saco Family Campground (formerly Shannon's Saco River Sanctuary in a Fifth Wheel.

Austin Lone Star Carefree RV Resort, Austin, Texas

Date of Stay: January, 2015 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

Would consider to be overpriced, but not sure there is a better option for a large RV in the area. Convenient to downtown and McKinney Falls. Some road noise, would have been worse if windows were open. Decent and reasonably priced laundry facilities. Mature trees throughout park. Spaces are relatively close together, and park appears to stay full (probably due to location). Can maneuver larger rigs through the park. Customer service is good. Roadways are asphalt, spaces are gravel but reasonably level. We camped at Austin Lone Star Carefree RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Big Chief RV Resort, Burnet, Texas

Date of Stay: January, 2015 - $15.00
Overall Rating:      

They gave us the PA rate even though they said they were no longer part of that program. Even at the higher rate, this park is a good value. Our pull thru site (#25) was extremely long and was a "buddy site", meaning the next site (#26) faced the opposing direction, where you and your traveling companion's entry doors faced each other. Yet, there was a good 30 ft of native grass common area between you. Very nice set-up for 2 rigs traveling together. The native grass area had burrs this time of year, so you had to pick them out of shoes before entering your rig. The sites are a packed dirt and gravel. It was dry when we were here, so no issues for us. Good hook-ups but weak WiFi. They do have an exercise room (nothing fancy, a treadmill and 2 stationary bikes), a laundry facility with 2 washers and 2 dryers (older, but clean), a small but nice pool and hot tub that was well landscaped, a small playground. The hot tub was not on in January but looked nice. They have access to Lake Buchanan for small boats and canoes. Little road noise. Options of shade and no shade sites. Cabins on site looked well maintained from exterior. Grounds were clean, no signs of neglect. Outstanding service. Would definitely stay here again, with or without the PA rate. We camped at Big Chief RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Good Sam rate. Used as an overnight stop. Convenient to interstate, which is nice if you don't mind the constant sound of traffic. Helpful staff and clean sites and grounds. Easy to maneuver a large rig through their park. All gravel, but nice level sites. Concrete picnic tables and benches. Did not use showers, restroom or laundry, so cannot rate those items. Only 5-10 miles to decent restaurants and shopping. We camped at Peculiar Park Place RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Price reflects 50% National Access Pass discount. One of the best parks we have stayed at. Sites are large, paved and well spaced. Scenic and quiet. Only negative was no sewer at site. Lake was extremely low, but cannot blame that on the park. Not sure of activities in the area, but if you are in the area, this is a great place to stay.
