West Thompson Lake COE, North Grosvenordale, Connecticut

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $15.00
Overall Rating:      

Very nice quiet park. Small in size but very well maintained. Hosts and staff are friendly and informative. Newer, clean shower building with playground centrally located. Not all sites are level or large enough for big rigs but we were lucky and was able to get around the campground in a 40' motorhome. Two sites with small rustic shelters for tent camping were nice. A lot to do at both the park and local area. Shopping and towns nearby. Would definitely stay here again. We camped at West Thompson Lake COE in a Motorhome.

Surf & Stream Campground, Toms River, New Jersey

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

Not a very nice campground from what we've been to across the US. Full (30 amp) hookups is all they have going for them. Roads are gravel, filled with pot holes, and narrow with cars parking on each side. Sites are narrow and short for our 40 footer with very close neighbors. Had meters but no breakers at power post. Staff was put out by visiting campers. The park was mostly run down permanent sites. I just don't understand why people own parks like this? Smaller sized three foot deep pool wasn't inviting with kids running from the bouncey house back to the pool. Chickens, ducks and cats running around the park. Garbage left out at sites. The whole atmosphere of the place was just dirty. We camped at Surf & Stream Campground in a Motorhome.

Bass Lake Resort, Parish, New York

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $1.00
Overall Rating:      

One of the worst Campgrounds we have been to. Started off with lies and deception. We reserved a full hookup site. What we got was a water and electric site for two weeks. We were told to call every morning to check on cancellations. When we got to the site it was a mud hole in the "New Development" area. I told the person that guided us to the site I couldn't park a 40,000 pound RV on that surface. No help whatsoever from management. Another camper arrived same time as us and switched sites with us. Long story short we moved three times, last two days to a full hookup site. Had to pay to empty our tanks, then had to sanitize the whole area because I saw how they did it. Every day we walked around the campground to see empty F/U sites. Occupancy about 75% with the poorest management I have ever seen. Even the owners to the Park complained about not being able to get sites. As with most places the "help" gets the best sites in the park. We stayed here because of the high ratings from Good Sam, boy were they off the mark. Best bet is leave early morning each day return home late each night. Do yourself a favor and read this before you make reservations. Then go elsewhere! We camped at Bass Lake Resort in a Motorhome.

Edgington RV Park, Alamogordo, New Mexico

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $18.00
Overall Rating:      

A little smaller Park then what we're used to staying at but one of the better. The owner was very friendly and helpful on questions about the surrounding area. Stayed four nights and found plenty to do in the vicinity. Attention to detail was apparent at this Park and you could see the owner took great pride in her campground. Half of the Park was long term parking the other half was pull through and bump out for short term visitors. Newer 50/30 amp electrical hookups in our area. Water and sewer hookups also. Large library with good WIFI. Exercise and Laundry facilities in separate building. We will definitely stay here again. We camped at Edgington RV Park in a Motorhome.

Emerald Cove Resort, Earp, California

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $5.00
Overall Rating:      

Stayed here again because the first trip was favorable. Things have changed a little. New manager or something. Didn't get the beautiful site we had in 2014. Electric service was very poor on 30 amp sites (which are plentiful). Power drops as low as 105 volts. I ended up buying an auto former for $600.00 from a local dealer to bring voltage back up to 120 volts. Cable TV was disconnected and WIFI is poor. Cell reception is hit and miss dependent on service provider. Members here pay maintenance dues but money isn't spent on anything noticeable. Rules are for people that follow them. We saw dogs in buildings, at the pool area, in the Tiki Bar eating scrapes at tables. Dog waste bags are provided but not used by all. Loose dogs are caught but put in a cage to bark all night. Children driving golf carts and ORV throughout the park. Security driving around but not enforcing rules was the norm. Nightly pow wow after bar hours for chit chat of security. Beach access is mostly limited to beach front campers. Two week maximum stay on beach sites. People block the beach with dog fences-kennels, tents, lawn chairs, toy hauler patio's, and fire pits. All sites with the exception of the pull through 50 amp sites are short and narrow compounded by some parking deep in back to back sites. We stayed here over a holiday weekend and it was a circus. We were told this is nothing compared to the Summer Season. Food and alcohol are cheap and happy hour brings out the drunks. We noticed most regular members were quite nice. Rather large turn around during the week with a heavy influx of campers coming in on the weekends. Short term stays here are in my future until things improve as this is a stop off through the region to greener pastures. We camped at Emerald Cove Resort in a Motorhome.

Terra Starr RV Park, Checotah, Oklahoma

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $5.00
Overall Rating:      

First off, this is the worst Park we have stayed at in three years of full time RVing. Not Big Rig Friendly. Permanent sites are unkept and true definition of trailer trash. It is a member owned Park in desperate need of quality management. Check in personnel was rude and very unhelpful. Low overhead branches and narrow gravel unkept roads makes for hazardous travel. We almost lost our Omni directional antenna from low branches in the Park. We did blow a tire on the washed out, narrow, unmaintained, gravel roads on or towed Jeep (sidewalk puncture). Low branches in site up against motor home and unable to use awning. Park rules were not enforced i.e. dogs running around off leash, quite hours not enforced, lack of security, kids on golf carts, all on the first night. Poor electric service, neighbor keep blowing 30 amp, I kept blowing 20 amp. Shared water with neighbor but no splitter. One picnic table for every ten sites. Not much for kids to do as the children's facilities are lacking imagination and funding. We got what we paid for with the free WIFI. Traveling cross country and reservations are all set up and wishing our week here was over. Never come back here again not even for one night. We camped at Terra Starr RV Park in a Motorhome.

Ramona Oaks RV Resort (formerly Ramona Canyon RV Resort), Ramona, California

Date of Stay: December, 2014 - $2.00
Overall Rating:      

We just started full time camping with two kids (6 & 8) and camp in a 40' motor home. The park employees didn't seem to know much of the area or didn't want to share any information even though she said she worked there for five years now. We stayed a week. but used it as a base camp to go to San Diego and So. Cal. The whole park smelled of dog doo. The pool was ice cold and spa was down for repair. The clubhouse was on top of a steep hill and not very accessible. The roads are narrow but blacktopped in the campground and have a high rollover curb to keep the campsites from washing away. Backing over the curb damaged my Blue Ox and ripped off my full length mudflap. The manager did give me some business cards of companies in town that could repair my RV. I told her that if these sites were a problem they should at least inform people before hand. She told us that they can always fix the blacktop! By the looks of the gouges in the road and curbs I wasn't the first to have damage done to my rig. The sites were dirt and the RV needed sweeping four times a day. They have internet, at the clubhouse, but the manager told us it was slower than dial-up and cost two dollars a day. The campground is in a canyon so cell phone and Mifi was spotty. There was talk of a wild fire a few years back but we didn't see any evidence of it. There wasn't much for maintenance being done anywhere in the park. The drains in the showers on the men's side were slow and backed up but the pressure was good and the spiders didn't bother me. It looked like all the best sites went to the employees. The kids liked the swing set by the pool area but the wood chips washed away leaving mud to play in. We were there over Christmas week and there was no activities in the park at all. We all decided to pass on going back to this park. We camped at Ramona Oaks RV Resort (formerly Ramona Canyon RV Resort) in a Motorhome.

Emerald Cove Resort, Earp, California

Date of Stay: November, 2014 - $1.00
Overall Rating:      

Full time RV campers with two children (6 & 8) stayed 17 days in a 42 ft motorhome. Close campsites with pea gravel pads and roads, but easy to maneuver big rigs. BBQ grill and picnic table at each site. Pools were clean and heated. One of the more family friendly RV Parks that we've stayed at in the area. Flat, level, wide open sites with small palm trees and desert bushes for barriers. Tiki Bar at pool side with good food at good prices. Small store that carried most items in need; food, clothes, camping supplies, ice cream. Kid's Klub and playground was very secure. Maintenance was always busy working on something. Helpful staff and plenty of activities. Close to river, towns and desert. We camped at Emerald Cove Resort in a Motorhome.
