Timber Ridge Campground & Recreation Resort, Traverse City, Michigan

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

Rate was for off season, with Passport America discount for 5 of our 7 nite stay. I do not understand the relatively low average rating for this park. It is well run, workers everywhere keeping the park maintained. Rates quite a bit higher in summer months. This park has a lot for kids of all ages. Mountain bike trails for varying skill levels, playgrounds, pool, large jumping pads, etc. Many planned activities. Many sites are definitely big rig friendly. Heavily treed park but limbs are trimmed above 15' and ample room to make turns on the roadways (ensure you request big rig friendly). Nice looking cabins and yurts are also available for rent. Reasonably close to town. I would return, especially using the Passport America rate. We camped at Timber Ridge Campground & Recreation Resort in a Motorhome.

Fort Wilkins Historic State Park, Copper Harbor, Michigan

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

Overall, park is nice. My comments are for owners of big rigs. Yes you can find sites plenty long enough. I stayed in a pull thru that must have been 80' long. Only issue for big motorhomes is that the pull thrus are basically at 90 degree angle from a narrow road (as is your exit). Was a difficult departure (I cut quite a few tree limbs to keep from scratching my paint job). I should have reserved one of the back in sites with better angles. You will also scrape trees on a couple of the internal road turns on the West campground, and many overhanging branches are not trimmed to big rig height. Otherwise, park was nice and concur with most other reviews. We camped at Fort Wilkins Historic State Park in a Motorhome.

Delagoon Park, Fergus Falls, Minnesota

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

My review is from the perspective of a big rig (45'MH). First the good. Quiet location, not heavily used (on our weekday stay), easily navigable for large rigs, cheap, and contrary to what the campground info says, there are a couple of 50 amp sites. Now the bad. Site are close together, not a lot of gravel for heavy rigs (so if wet, be careful), utilities not conveniently located, not very clean (lots of dog excrement in our site), no dump station, limited shade sites. We camped at Delagoon Park in a Motorhome.

Americas Campground, Box Elder, South Dakota

Overall Rating:

Agree with all prior reviewers. Absolutely nothing good I can say except the utilities work and the staff is friendly. Fine place to stay if trying to establish SD residency and mail forwarding service (their primary business), otherwise I would pay a few more bucks and stay someplace we could enjoy.

Red Trail Campground, Medora, North Dakota

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $36.00
Overall Rating:

First the good - Convenient to town and National Park. Utilities work. Some sites with shade. About all the good I can think of. Now the bad. Under no circumstances should you arrive before noon (we were thirty minutes early due to time zone change) and the grouchy lady told us to leave the park and come back at check in time (park was <50% occupied, and they do not need time for site prep - as they do none.). Apparently did this to others, so come noontime, there is a check in logjam (No issue if you plan to arrive mid afternoon). Also, a fair amount of low hanging branches (many dead) that will scratch your paint (esp. if a big rig). They won't allow you to trim them either. Dump station is poorly located which can block big rigs trying to exit the park (had a 15 minute wait to leave - as the alternative exit route had many low hanging dead branches that would have significantly scratched my rig). Female worker (I believe to be an owner or relative) needs serious customer service training. Sites nothing special, some are better than others. Have stayed at worse places, but would not return here. Note: The low tree limbs shouldn't impact shorter travel trailers or folks not worried about brushing limbs with their RV. We camped at Red Trail Campground in a Motorhome.

White Buffalo Campground, Watford City, North Dakota

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

Park is fine for a couple night stay if you can get past the fact that the fresh water spigot is located just inches above the open hole for your sewer dump. I used hand sanitizer on the spigot threads before hooking up and wore gloves to turn on the water. If you come here for a day or two, I'd recommend filling your fresh water tank before arriving. Also, be prepared for a unique process to check in. No reservations, just call 20 minutes before getting there so the 85 year old owner can meet you there to 'help' guide you into your site - she insists on this even though its relatively easy and her 'help' is anything but 'help'. Also be careful about low hanging branches. Most are avoidable. Site is dirt/grass - glad it wasn't rainy (don't think that is usually a problem here). No picnic table or fire pit. The rest of this review is simply for entertainment. After getting into our site, she gives my wife the following instructions: 1) Under that plastic garbage lid you will find the water and sewer (see comment above). Don't bitch - that's how we do things in North Dakota. 2) Don't call 911 or the police, I don't like the cops, you call me and I'll take care of any situation. 3) If you get in a fight with somebody, I'll decide who gets thrown out of the park. Pretty entertaining listening to this, but kinda got me concerned about what I was getting into. I talked with a long term renter to confirm there were no problems in the park (there weren't). The park is primarily occupied by long term renters working in the oil & gas industry. Nice folks and basically tidy lots. I would stay here again if staying only a night or two and if I filled my fresh water tank before arriving, although I might check out the city park just a block or two away. We camped at White Buffalo Campground in a Motorhome.

Farragut State Park, Athol, Idaho

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $50.00
Overall Rating:

Rate is for a companion site. This review is from a 45' motorhome. Stayed in Gilmore loop. All in all a real nice state park. Arrived early and took the toad to the site to check tree clearances. Host allowed me to bring in pole saw to trim a few branches that would scratch paint. After minor trimming, no problem getting into site. Didn't notice may sites in the Gilmore loop that would be a problem. They are close to opening a new loop next to Gilmore that will have 50 sites with sewer hookups. Just about all would easily fit a 45'motorhome. Host indicated these would be first come / first serve when opened (don't know if that is for the remainder of 2018 only). Fewer trees, but still nice and well spaced sites. Did not notice if this loop will have a bathhouse, but for self contained rigs, this will be a great option. Park has lots of hiking and biking trails, beach, boat launch, 5 disc golf courses, good activities for kids, etc. Would return. We camped at Farragut State Park in a Motorhome.

Burnaby Cariboo RV Park and Campground, Burnaby, British Columbia

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

Rate is US Dollars and based on weekly rate. My review is relevant only to big rigs. We are in a 45' MH. This is not what I would call big rig friendly. Even though RV Park Reviews checks Big Rigs, and it is published in Big Rig Best Bets, etc - this park is far from ideal for 45' motorhomes (and I would say anything over 40'). I had to cut bushes and back the tag axle off the paved site (the maximum I could go back) and the front of the motorhome was even with the narrow street in front of the site. Had to ensure we positioned the coach just right so slide-outs could extend and bay doors could open. BTW - this was a 'premium site'. Interior roads are 2 way narrow asphalt with trees trimmed to about 12' and overhang the road. Not great from nicely painted rigs. Real tight turns if sites at the corners are occupied. IF you still book a stay here, definitely unhook your toad prior to arriving at your site. Parking for toad (we have a Grand Cherokee) is also tight. Rear is 1' from concrete picnic table and front of coach is 1' from street. Again, we are in a 'premium site'. We booked 6 months in advance and asked for the largest available site. from what I can tell, we got it. Also, be careful with GPS (Rand McNally), as it did not have us turn on Caribou Road off Gaglardi Road, (thinking we arrived while still on Gaglardi Road). If you miss it (no signage) you will have quite a bit of turning thru city streets. We camped at Burnaby Cariboo RV Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

Harrison City RV Park, Harrison, Idaho

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $38.00
Overall Rating:

This review is from the perspective of a 45' MH. Narrow highways to get to the park. Steep slope down when entering (thankfully We could 'raise' the coach's air suspension, but low riding coaches may scrap getting in. We came in early May before the park was crowded, so no problem getting into our spot. If crowded, could be challenging for a big rig in certain sites. Check the online map and use google earth and the park site map when reserving. They are closing the park in September to do some upgrades, so if coming in 2019 or later, you may have 50 amp and potentially other improvements. Check the website for what they are doing and then potentially discount some older review negative comments. You are paying for a GREAT LOCATION (nothing else). On the lake, on the bike path (very nice), can kayak to the river (or on the lake), small town and a few restaurants and bars within walking distance. Dump station is set up to use as you come in, not as you leave. We will just haul to our next stop. Originally was planing to stay in the state park down the road, but they said it would be tough to navigate interior roads with a 45' rig. Road our bikes there, they were correct. Like this area, but would probably not come back unless during the shoulder season when traffic is low and park has several openings to allow maneuvering. If in a small rig, I'd return in a heartbeat. We camped at Harrison City RV Park in a Motorhome.

Silver City RV Resort, Minden, Nevada

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

Prior reviews fairly accurate. Things you should know: New management with price increases. Heavy road noise if near front of park. Broken concrete strips for your tires, remainder of site is medium size rocks where debris from prior campers remain. Narrow internal roads that can create challenging exits for larger rigs depending on what is parked across from you. Exercise equipment is old and tired. Bathrooms appeared clean. General store has the basics. Convenient access to 395, though exiting Southbound can take patience. Average size sites, but doubt one would want to hang outside on rock lot. Aluminum picnic table on site. Sewer hose extension most likely necessary, 20' total of hose should suffice most. Dog run relatively small, but is used. Not sure if better options exist in the area, but if we stayed here again, would require a site far away from Hwy 395. We camped at Silver City RV Resort in a Motorhome.

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.

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.
