About Moe and Flo are on the go

We have been RVing since 2013 and have been full-time since 2017. We are enjoying our travels and stay about 10 days on average in our travel destinations. We winter in northeast Florida. Our goal is to visit as many of the national parks as possible and live like this as long as we are healthy and enjoy it. In reading our reviews, please note that we prefer woods and nature and water. “Resorts” just don’t excite us. We tow a 40 foot fifth wheel with an F450.

Alamogordo/ White Sands KOA, Alamogordo, New Mexico

Date of Stay: April, 2018 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

Fantastic park with fantastic service. Really! The rate we list also reflects my savings from cashing in $25 in reward bucks. Also note that we stayed in a premium patio site. These are super nice and include a gas grill, exterior lighting, raised fire pit, and lots of room. We changed our reservation twice and they were very accommodating. We were led to our site. The maintenance team cleans and rakes each site as people depart. They also clean the grills and fire pits. Every staff member we encountered was friendly, professional, and proud of their park. They have live music on Tuesday and Friday evenings. They have complimentary coffee and a nice gift shop. They were super helpful regarding places to go and places to eat. You know how picky parks can be about pet pickup. Our dog was sick and there was nothing but a puddle to pick up. The maintenance man was nearby and said not to worry about it and that he would clean it up. Wow! Please remember, you are in a desert. It gets windy and hot. Another plus for this park is that they really do work on their landscaping. They use drip irrigation and plan drought-tolerant (though messy) trees. They really are trying to make it nice for you. You are only two blocks off the main road but won't hear any bothersome road noise. You will hear the trains but they aren't bad. Site E06 shares its front porch with the tent campers. Wasn't a problem and you have a nice view and shade from nearby trees. I would definitely stay here again if in the area. We camped at Alamogordo/ White Sands KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Oh my. Get out of the park and enjoy. White Sands Natl Monument is a must. We did a day trip to hike and went back for the sunset ranger walk. The KOA will loan you sleds for the sand dunes. Three Rivers Petroglyph site is excellent. Drive up to Cloudcroft and do one of the trestle trails. Daytrip to Roswell Go to one of the Pistachio farms and take the farm tour.

White's City RV Park, Whites City, New Mexico

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

Campground is right on TX7 just a few miles from the entrance to Carlsbad Caverns NP and about 30 miles from Guadalupe Mountains NP which was our reason to stay there. This was an unscheduled stop and the purpose of our stay was to visit Guadalupe Mountains NP. There is a pretty good camp store, a gas station, and a nice restaurant right across the street. Other than that, there isn't anything close by. Groceries and other nice things are in the town of Carlsbad which is about 20 miles up the road. The RV park is quite large but is about fully occupied by long-term occupants who are working the very active gas fields in west Texas and surrounding area. The spots offered to folks like us were all back-in sites right off the street. The street only goes to Carlsbad NP so there isn't much traffic. These sites are quite long and full hookup but they are neither roomy or level. Overall, the park was fine and the spots were ok for just a few days. I must also say that we left earlier than planned because of a forecast of severe winds...85 mph gusts. Didn't want to deal with that. So we left two days early and stopped to let them know. They refunded our money for those two days. Excellent. We camped at White's City RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Visit both of the nearby National Parks. We had already seen Carlsbad so didn't go and would not have with the elevators out...800 stair steps. Ouch! We enjoyed Guadalupe Mountains NP and did the McCitrick trail down to the Pratt House. We are in our 60s and this was a good hike. It was a bit of a stretch for us but we really enjoyed it. It was hot! Bring plenty of water, wear good shoes, bring a hiking stick.

Big Bend Resort & Adventures RV Park & Campground (Big Bend Motor Inn), Terlingua, Texas

Date of Stay: March, 2018 - $33.00
Overall Rating:

We are here for two weeks so I am trying to like this park. Here is what I can tell you. If you are visiting the area to see Big Bend National Park, it is a great location just two miles from the west entrance. If you are staying in the area for the winter, it is quite affordable with weekly and monthly rates. If you are the type that spends a great deal of time in the park, at your RV and you like to be outside...this probably isn't a good choice unless $$ are a prime concern. First, you must remember where you are. This is a high-desert that has not seen ANY rain in over seven months. The elevation is 2600 feet, the sky is clear, and even in March it is toasty hot. There are over 100 sites. On the same property you will find a hotel, gasoline, laundry, propane, and gas. These are important out here. There is a small general store just to the north. The park is bordered by some sort of industrial/gravel/dirt industry that is just an eyesore. Did I mention this is a desert? If you are in Sites 1-57 you have a moderate chance of a tree and perhaps a bit of grass. Other than that, it is barren...hot...sandy. Water hardness is over 250 with visible mineral collection at the spigot. Our water is softened and goes through four levels of filtration before it gets to the drinking water outlet of the fridge. The water still tastes...funky...salty. For the first time in four years we are buying bottled water. We like this location because were are here for two weeks to spend time in the park. Lucky us. This RV site is very convenient to the NP, necessities, and adventure outfitters. Charcoal is OK but no wood fires. The management initially assigned us to a terrible site 97 but did allow us to move to 57. Thank you. We camped at Big Bend Resort & Adventures RV Park & Campground (Big Bend Motor Inn) in a Fifth Wheel.

Broke Mill RV Park, Del Rio, Texas

Date of Stay: March, 2018 - $33.00
Overall Rating:

This park was just an overnight stop for us but I would stay longer if I needed to be in the area or I wintered in Texas. This is a nice park. Park was developed in 2008 by the owner and he is quite proud of the park. It is pretty large with over 80 sites. Yes, it is right off the US highway but he has used bamboo or similar crops as borders to buffer wind, sand, and road noise. We were five spots from the highway and didn't have any issues with road noise. There are a fair number of snow-birds in residence and it seems that short termers like us are directed over to sites 1-20 area which is ok. I asked for a spot away from the road and she put me in the back of that section; again, it was just fine. There is a nice pool. There is a burn ban in effect as is true for most of southwest Texas I am sure. You will find horses and cows next door but not very many and not very smelly. Sites are spacious enough and have a little bit of grass in some areas and a few small trees. The owner has his own ranch somewhere north of there and brings down his own beef to sell in the office. We bought some to try after others we know and park residents raved about it. Interior roads were paved and sites were packed gravel. The lady running the office was very nice and friendly. I would stay here again and I would stay longer. We camped at Broke Mill RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Katy Lake RV Resort, Katy, Texas

Date of Stay: March, 2018 - $42.00
Overall Rating:

This is a premier resort in the southwest section of Houston convenient to I-10 but there is nothing convenient about driving on I-10. Before I get started, let me just say I hate everything about driving in and around Houston with or without the rig in tow. Ok...Now the resort. The drive in from I-10 on Frye to Morton is not bad and well laid out. Our GPS did advise that the resort was on the opposite side of the road but hey, we used our eyes and have been here before. The front office staff are very friendly, efficient, and professional. They readily moved us to a back-in on the lake rather than a pull-thru as this is what we prefer. All of the sites around the lake are back-in and are 45 feet deep with a half-spot on the side for the two vehicle. They are adamant that you not hang over the grass and that your nose is behind the fire lane line. No worries, they were nice about it. The sites are roomy enough but not spacious. There are NO TREES at all in the park...it is a concrete paved parking lot with a bit of grass on the utility side. They just recently installed about 25 awnings to offer covered sites. These would be VERY nice in July when it is stinking hot here. Good power, free cable, water ok but pressure a bit low. Nice dog park and dog wash area. Nice 1000 step walk around the lake which also offers catch-n-release fishing. Very nice pool and exercise area. Community gas grills and one of those gas operated burning gravel deals that you can sit by. Sites on the back side of the lake have a better setback from the sidewalk around the lake. All in all a very nice, clean, well-run RV park in a very urban environment. We camped at Katy Lake RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Milton / Gulf Pines KOA, Milton, Florida

Date of Stay: March, 2018 - $56.00
Overall Rating:

Just stayed here for a quick overnight stay. Sights are long, level, grassy but well drained. Park is full and we were fortunate to reserve one of the last two spots. Excellent camp store. The night we arrived they were having a community dinner and they have a continental breakfast daily. Pool was open. Very interesting that they have an inflatable surround for the pool. It resembled an inflatable Quonset hut. Plenty of trees, plenty of room. VERY close to interstate 10. Even three rows in and with a very well insulated RV the road noise was...well...noisy. Hence, my overall rating of 7. Note that you are 20-30 miles away from those sugar-sand beaches. We camped at Milton / Gulf Pines KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Manatee Springs State Park, Chiefland, Florida

Date of Stay: February, 2018 - $12.00
Overall Rating:

Love this park. Our site was perfect for our rig. They accommodate small to large but list 40 ft as max size which is what we are. They only list a few sites as being large enough for 40 foot but we found several others that would work just fine; 5 and 12 were our favorites. All of those sites are on the Magnolia 1 loop. I do NOT recommend anything larger than 40 foot not because of the sites but because of interior roads, turning radius, trees, and overhang. A few sites are paved, a few are gravel, the reset are, well...dirt. Most are level but some have low spots that will collect rain. Park is 6 miles off US19 in Chiefland. Campground is another 2 miles after the gate. This is great! Quite, no road noise, great night sky. Every day and night we saw deer and raccoon and we saw wild hog mom with three piglets. These are hog NOT boar with tusks. Please DO NOT feed the animals. We like nature so we love this park. We camped at Manatee Springs State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Have fun IN the park. Plenty of trails. Swim in the springs. Fish from the dock. We saw two manatees at the end of the boardwalk but the water really was getting warm so they didn't congregate. Use Andersons Outfitters for your paddling needs. We did the nine-mile paddle from Fanning Springs. Andersons also has great BBQ. Enjoy the stars, take an evening hike on the Sink Trail. Produce market on US19 is great.

Rainbow Springs State Park, Dunnellon, Florida

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

Sites 1-43 are on two loops in a very natural Florida environment with plenty of tress, palmettos, etc. Sites 44-53 and the tent sites are in a parking lot environment with just site 50 having trees and shade. For our 40 foot fifth wheel, our favorite sites were 13 and 21 both of which were long easy back-ins with plenty of trees. While in the park we were visited by raccoons who drug off the bird feeders, possum, rats (yugh) and the bird feeders were kept very busy. We were here off-season but April-September they run a tram that ferries tubers back up from the tube takeout to the campground. The water entrance at the campground is an easy one mile paddle down river from the spring head. The park is well-maintained and the staff were friendly and professional. Wood is available for a $7 "donation." They do rent kayaks and canoes. You can also fish and swim at the dock and beach. This is natural Florida folks. It is beautiful. Enjoy. Interior roads are paved and sites are gravel and/or packed sand. Generally level and spacious. NOTE: If a Florida resident over 65 yo camping fee is 50% off year-round. Park is about 20 miles from Ocala to the East or Crystal River to the west. Take a drive to either for shopping or visit Silver Springs or the Crystal River. We camped at Rainbow Springs State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Go fishing. Paddle up to the spring head or float down. We used Aquatic Wilderness Adventures to ferry our kayaks up to the KP County park and then took a leisurely float back down to the take out. Have lunch or dinner at Swampys and enjoy a beer as you watch others on the water. Not much in the way of "trails" but you can take some small hikes. We also rode our bicycles on the tram trail.

Barrington Hills RV Resort, Hudson, Florida

Date of Stay: February, 2018 - $42.00
Overall Rating:

Mix of full- and part-time residents. Great location. Clean bath, shower, laundry. Laundry room was huge. Plenty of activities. Full timers crowd the rest of us. Sites are very tight and you need to be careful not to sink into the sand. Electrical system is overloaded with one or both legs dropping as low as 102 volts. We arrived and did not have 50 amp. Maintenance tech argued with me that it was correct. I requested an electrician and management did send one. He agreed and fixed by changing circuit breaker. You do not want a site along Little Road as it there is a good bit of traffic noise. There was not enough room to park my truck and be fully off the road. But, thankfully, roads were very wide. No nearby alternative parking for tow vehicle. We ran out of time but wanted to go to Homosassa Springs also. In short, the RV park is in a great location to get out of the RV park.

Whispering Palms RV Resort (55+ park), Sebastian, Florida

Date of Stay: January, 2018 - $47.00
Overall Rating:

Conveniently located on US 1. Easy access to paved sites. Mixed use park with some full-time residents and a ton of mature snow birds including a large contingency from Canada. They have shuffleboard, putting green, and activity center with quite a bit going on. Restrooms were quite clean and electronically secured. Had a bit of a problem with my reservation but staff was able to take care of it. The office and grounds staff were all quite friendly as were the folks staying here. NOTE: US1 is a busy four-lane road. The sites along the road have road noise and there is no barrier. There are also train tracks close enough to hear the trains. We are in a well insulated, well built rig but the noise still got to me. As work traffic picked up in the morning, it work me up. The pull thrus by the road are tight and subject to road noise. Scout your turns as some are rather tight for 45 foot fifth wheel. We camped at Whispering Palms RV Resort (55+ park) in a Fifth Wheel.

Check out the barrier islands via A1A. There is a state park and county park with RV hookups that we will try next year. Dine at Outriggers. They have daily specials and we were there for Tuesday clams. Get there early, they sell out. Also dine at Slack Tide. We enjoyed great oysters and shrimp. Free Friday Concerts just a bit south of Melborne on the first Friday of each month. Produce market just north of the RV park is awesome.

Overall Rating:

Fantastic park in a great location. Loop 1 is all 30 amp with new sewer. Loop 2: most have sewer and most have 50 amp. Interior roads are great and pads are gravel. Most sites have at least some shade and the sites on the back side...30s...of loop 2 are very shaded. Reservations are site-specific with discounts for senior. Georgia parks also offer snow bird discounts of 30-50% depending on park during Dec-Feb.

Lake, swim beach, boat. They do rent kayak, canoe, and john boats (not powered). Nice river feeds to the damn. Gators are present but we have never had a problem; just be smart. NOTE: Please do NOT feed gators and don't bring your pets onto the water with you. We camped at Reed Bingham State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Excellent park that appears to have been recently remodeled. Excellent interior roads to and through gated campground. Two back-in areas and one pullthru area. Back-in sites have gravel pads. All sites are spacious and plenty long. For the pullthru sites we recommend most any on the outside of the loop for patio privacy. Might want to avoid the bottom of the hill. Deer are all over the place. We camped at DeSoto State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

If you are in a big rig do NOT come in from Mentone and then south on 89; come in from Fort Payne. Walmart in Fort Payne. Eat in Mentone at WildFlower Café and the Plow Share Bistro. Fantastic. Visit Desoto Falls, kayak upriver. Hike in the park unless you just had rain. Visit, view, hike in the Little River Canyon National Preserve. Mentone Color Festival is 4th weekend in October and was fun. Visit the CCC museum at the far park entrance.

Cloudland Canyon State Park, Rising Fawn, Georgia

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $28.00
Overall Rating:

We simply love this park. Beautiful in the fall. Fantastic hiking. West Rim sites are very well wooded. We have four feeders out and the birds are very happy. Roads on West Rim campground are narrow and some turns are sharp. I am in a 40 foot long, tall, wide fifth wheel so it is a challenge, but we made it. You cannot reserve a specific site. Some have 50 amp and are so marked. None have sewer. Unfortunately, they do not exercise any control on site selection so we did see tent campers on a 50 amp site. Great water pressure. Enjoy!!

We are here for five nights and won't leave the park. We are here to hike as much, as many, as often as possible. It is so beautiful here that I have no desire to go anywhere else. We camped at Cloudland Canyon State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Anchor Down RV Resort, Dandridge, Tennessee

Date of Stay: November, 2016 - $62.00
Overall Rating:

This is a new and pristine RV park on the shore of Lake George. The park is immaculate and I do mean that sincerely. As in WoW! We stayed in a premium waterfront back-in site with a fire ring. If you choose a site with a "fireplace," expect a custom hearth etc.; each one is a bit different. Nice but we like the fire ring built into the patio.

They spent a lot of money and worked hard to terrace the park down from the hilltop to reasonable level above the waterline. If you are concerned about watersports, swimming, boating, you should check the Lake George web site for seasonal water levels. The water level fluctuates by as much as 50 feet and, based on the most recent three years, it is high and usable during the summer months but low and not accessible from the park during the winter months. We planned to kayak but I simply cannot carry two kayaks up and down that long ramp.

The roads are asphalt, the pads are concrete, the space between sites is gravel. The sites are level. The views are fantastic with the water and the Smoky Mountains in the distance.

The only area with trees are sites 1-29 and 30-36 and those are just on the ends of the sites. If you are a back unit like us, sites 20-29 are on the top of the hill with a great view but you do also overlook the rest of the campground. Sites 81-124 are on the same level so you will not have the same great views.

We have not heard of "buddy sites" before but they have them here. The idea is to park on pull-in and one back-in side by side. Your patios face each other and you typically share a fire ring or fireplace. Nice if you have a buddy.

The location is a 20 minute drive to Pigeon Forge and about an hour to the visitor center for Great Smoky Mountain National Park.

The bath house, dog park, and courts are nice but not conveniently located.

The staff were friendly and professional.

Folks this isn't cheap but it is very nice. We will stay here again!! We camped at Anchor Down RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

We went to "The Diner" in Sivierville for the Elk Burger. It was ok but didn't wow me. Suggest going to a show in Pigeon Forge and definitely go to the National Park.

If you like to hike, there is nothing in the RV park but you can get your exercise walking up and down the hills in the park.

Northampton / Springfield KOA, Westhampton, Massachusetts

Date of Stay: October, 2016 - $47.00
Overall Rating:

This was an unplanned stop due to mechanical problems. The site was very kind and very flexible as we did not know from day-to-day if we were staying or leaving. Ended up spending three nights. You are surrounded by hills which were also showing fall colors; nice.

This is an older park that, I suspect, was recently brought into the KOA family. The sites in the back behind the first row of cabins are the older sites and are almost all dirt pads located amongst many trees.

Those sites around the cabins and out front near the office are all newer and are all very level gravel base. The seven or so pull through sites up front are great sites but just a little bit too close for our liking. However, at this time of year, it wasn't a problem. These sites are wide open, no trees.

The park is near a farm with lots of cows and when the wind is just right...which sometimes it is...well you know. We camped at Northampton / Springfield KOA in a Fifth Wheel.
