Route 66 RV Resort, Albuquerque, New Mexico

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $45.00
Overall Rating:      

All was good. Shuttle to and from Casino prompt. The only negative was lack of communication of on line reservation. No email confirmation. Called day before and left voice m ail message no call back. No response. Sent email asking for confirm - no response. Finally called again morning of reservation and got live person who confirmed. Manager apologized and we noted email was spelled incorrectly. Don't know if my fault or theirs but he acknowledged that they should have called. No cable TV, but air antenna picked up 50+ good stations. We camped at Route 66 RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Alamosa KOA, Alamosa, Colorado

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $39.00
Overall Rating:      

Pro: Level site. Ample room. Hunt Brothers Pizza delivered to site excellent. Con: Dog Park had piles of dog poop. My wife cleaned it up four our pup. She reported to KOA staff with little response. No cable and no success getting on air reception. For the price, this park should have cable. Could not connect to wireless. Low water pressure - 20 psi. We camped at Alamosa KOA in a Motorhome.

Burkburnett / Wichita Falls KOA, Burkburnett, Texas

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

In reading earlier reviews, this park must have substantially improved. Warmly greeted upon arrival. Escorted to site and was told they moved us over for more shade and sewer. This was just one night. Site level although gravel. Cable TV excellent - best we have seen in many a park. We camped at Burkburnett / Wichita Falls KOA in a Motorhome.

Texarkana RV Park & Event Center, Texarkana, Texas

Date of Stay: November, 2016 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

Great park for overnight. Office open 24hrs a day.

Asked for and got free cable box and remote needed for cable. However, I couldn't find outside connection. Called Office and person came right out on golf cart and located it. Small gray box on electric post with door. Cable Box needs 120V power and connect between inside end of syour cable and TV. Looks like 100 channels.

Has small dog park. We camped at Texarkana RV Park & Event Center in a Motorhome.

Branson KOA, Branson, Missouri

Date of Stay: November, 2016 - $48.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed five nights and found the park and service to be excellent.

We were in our 25' motor home and do not tow.

The park clearly states that pull thru sites in the lower cost section may require leveling. I did not notice that (my fault) and found the first night I needed 2" blocks front and back to get level.I didn't want to do this task each time we left and returned.

The next morning I asked the office to upgrade us to th newer section with concrete pads for the tires. They had the last last one available at a nominal increase in cost. We camped at Branson KOA in a Motorhome.

River View RV Park & Resort, Vidalia, Louisiana

Date of Stay: October, 2016 - $34.00
Overall Rating:      

All good except:

1. Made phone res. night before - 2 nights. Gave PA and Good Sam numbers, credit card, etc. Got email confirm.

At Check in- told they had res for only one night. Asked for PA and Goo Sam numbers although given at phone reservation. Did not give site map.

2. Had to ask for cable channel listing which they had to print off a computer file. Only 10 channels.

3. At site - no cable connection. Back to office. Said no cable at section assigned so I had to move. Even though they had to print and gave me cable channel listing, never said no cable at site assigned.

4. Moved to new site. Cable reception so bad (snow) only 2-3 were workable - no networks. We camped at River View RV Park & Resort in a Motorhome.

Lafayette KOA, Scott, Louisiana

Date of Stay: March, 2016 - $43.00
Overall Rating:      

All good except for cable TV. Poor picture on all lower numbered channels, including CBS and Fox News.

Cable hookup not near pedestal - separate post near road but office didn't tell us that. Had to call office.

Channel lineup in brochure doesn't match actual on most channels. We camped at Lafayette KOA in a Motorhome.

Muddy Joe's Off Road and RV Park, Perkinston, Mississippi

Date of Stay: November, 2015 - $55.00
Overall Rating:      

If you are RVing with your own ATV off road vehicle, this is the place for you. Otherwise, "nothing to see here."

Overpriced, all trash cans overflowing, no service other than security guard upon entry. He didn't want to take credit cards "too much effort".

Tried to rent an ATV for about $150 1/2 day. Went to club house as directed and found ATV with keys in ignition. Turned over but wouldn't start. Called and got voice mail. Called back after we left.

Site was level. We camped at Muddy Joe's Off Road and RV Park in a Motorhome.

Camp Gulf, Miramar Beach, Florida

Date of Stay: November, 2015 - $80.00
Overall Rating:      

One of the nicest parks we have visited in 100,000+ miles of travel to 49 states.It was sumptuous.

Big park but everyone friendly and welcoming.

Danial escorted us to our back-in site and very professionally guided us in.

Later, he noted we did not have a picnic table on our site and, without being asked, delivered one with a back hoe.

With surely return. We camped at Camp Gulf in a Motorhome.

Tallahassee RV Park, Tallahassee, Florida

Date of Stay: November, 2015 - $41.00
Overall Rating:      

Fine park except for unreasonable delay in checking in. Had reservation. Arrived about 4PM on Tuesday before Thanksgiving and pulled up to Office. At this point, road is one vehicle wide and two other RVs parked ahead of us. As a result, guests in passenger car behind us also stuck waiting as well as RVer trying to get to front section of park. After about 10 minutes of all vehicles just standing still, I went into office. Owner of a 40' Class A with tow was trying to find a site in which he could fit and the one desk person apparently did not know the length of the various sites. After another several minutes, the Class A owner left to find a site himself.

We were next. Staff person could find reservation at first although made by my daughter for two sites side by side and she had checked in day before. Same last name. Then she found reservation but couldn't find site number. I see my daughters configuration form on desk and it clearly noted both site numbers. Not to pick on staff, but I felt sorry for the other vehicles caught in the bottleneck. Layout of road at office could be easily improved.

Otherwise would have rated a 10 for the park. We camped at Tallahassee RV Park in a Motorhome.
