About Moe and Flo are on the go

We’ve been RVing since 2013 and full-time since 2017. We enjoy travelling and stay about 8 days in each destination. We winter in Florida. Our goal is to visit as many of the national parks as possible and live like this while we are healthy and enjoy it. Note that we prefer woods and nature and water. “Resorts” just don’t excite us. We only review overnighters if we really like and would return or really don't like and are trying to save others. We tow a 40 foot fifth wheel with an F450.

The Longhorn Ranch Lodge & RV Resort, Dubois, Wyoming

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $65.00
Overall Rating:

Simply love this park! Beautiful location on the Wind River. The back of our coach is overlooking the river where we see the rushing water and an assortment of birds, deer, etc. Trees everywhere and most are Cottonwood (shedding during our stay). Sites are VERY spacious and almost all have good shade. Most days were pleasantly cool in the evening and just right in the day time. Can get rather windy and the mosquitoes were doing what they do. Staff were kind, polite, helpful. Small camp store. Riding stables on site. Dubois is a small cowboy town that depends on tourists during the season. The drive to Grand Tetons is about 60 miles and to Yellowstone is about 80. Beautiful drive but...rather long for old folks like us. Our site was fantastic. Biggest "front yard" we have ever had and we had a nice picnic table and fire ring. Wood was only $5 per bundle. We camped at The Longhorn Ranch Lodge & RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Elk Meadow Lodge & RV Resort, Estes Park, Colorado

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $72.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed in site F11. The F row is the only row with trees and you general have a tree on either side. The location is perfect for visiting Rocky Mountain National Park as you are just a few miles from the Beaver Creek Visitor Center. Also very convenient to food and shopping in the town of Estes Park. We had a beautiful view of Long's Peak, the only 14er in the RMNP. The sites are dirt with some grass and mostly level. If you are very long and if you are towing a trailer you should unhook if possible before entering the park. You may bottom out. Not a problem for us but we watched a long trailer bottom. This is another RV Inn managed property but the staff were SO MUCH nicer than those in Denver. Very helpful getting us in and allowed us to change sites on request. Staff were respectful and helped with additional information. Note, do not follow GPS through the town of Estes Park in a big rig. Call the park for an alternate approach from the east side of town. We were routed through a parking lot by GPS and the main road 36 through downtown is very tight. We asked for an alternate on the way out and a staff member went to the office, highlighted a map and brought it back to me. Now that is service!! All roads are dirt. It is very dry and winding so lots of blowing road dust. Colorado is in a drought...no burns. Go to the park. It is beautiful. In my opinion you need at least three days to even begin to see and enjoy this park. Five would be even better. We camped at Elk Meadow Lodge & RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Dakota Ridge RV Park, Golden, Colorado

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $70.00
Overall Rating:

Park has changed hands to RV Inn as management company but based on experience at another RV Inn property, this is not the problem. Management has terrible attitude and that trickles down to other employees. We stayed here in 2014 and service was great. First about the park. Sites are very tight for us in 40 ft fifth wheel. We would have hit another rig with tail swing if we had blindly followed the escort cart. My wife spotted so we avoided that. Fifth wheel that came in four days later followed the escort vehicle and did hit another rig with tail swing and split back cap open. Sites are short and close. Roads are very tight. We noticed picnic area up the side of the hill closed and overgrown, dump station closed, hot tub closed, dumpsters pad locked shut so you couldn't use them at your leisure, and damage to exterior of office that was addressed with duct tape. In short, they are not taking care of the place. Staff attitude rude and confrontational. I needed carpet cleaned and called a week ahead of time to make sure it was OK. I asked if they had anyone to recommend and the lady said they use Stanley Steamer. I don't like them and she said I could use whoever I wanted. I schedule for the following week with another vendor. I prepared our rig and the tech arrived and started work. About half way through a park employee approached on a golf cart and said to tell the tech to come outside. The park employee did not even talk to me. He told the tech he was trespassing and would have to leave. Threatened to call the police. I contacted the manager who told me that's the way it is. He said they had to prove insurance, etc. even though park policies specifically absolve or all liability for all persons on property. My carpet cleaner had to leave with job half completed even though the park said I could use whoever I wanted. I hope to never need to stay here again. Also, if you have a guest for any period of time it is $5 per day and $5 for the car. So one guest for one night in one car is $20. I encourage all to look for another option. We camped at Dakota Ridge RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Peregrine Pines FamCamp (Military FamCamp), US Air Force Academy, Colorado

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $37.00
Overall Rating:

Excellent park and convenient to many towns, activities, and local attractions. Sites are fairly level dirt with gravel topping. Roads are easy to navigate pulling 40 foot fifth wheel. "Somebody" either took our after hours check in information or forgot to put it out. We just occupied and empty spot and figured it out in the morning. Staff are friendly but busy and seem to do better at returning messages rather than answering the phone. It all worked out. They say the park is open year-round with full hookup sites including freeze plugs on the water lines. If I wanted to winter in Colorado, I'd certainly consider this location. The area is suffering a server drought so be sensitive to burn issues. They do still allow camp fires in approved containers or you can rent a chimaera from them. I liked it. There are about 100 sites and it appears that all have some shade from towering pine trees. Train tracks on back side of park on which the coal trains run several times per day. They were not noisy. We camped at Peregrine Pines FamCamp (Military FamCamp) in a Fifth Wheel.

Uncompahgre River RV Park (55+ park), Olathe, Colorado

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $37.00
Overall Rating:

This is a nice recently renovated park in a suburban area with nearby agricultural and mixed-use areas. This roads are paved, some sites are paved and all appear to be spacious enough for the rig that they intend to be on the site. The owners were friendly. They accommodated two itinerary changes and worked hard to resolve issues we had with our 50 amp service. The area is in a drought and they are doing their best to keep things green via careful irrigation. Note that we were here in the middle of May. The park is covered with HUGE Cottonwood trees and they were slinging seed pods everywhere. As an allergy-sufferer, this was not the best environment for me. They advised that this would last for about two weeks; lucky me. Also, I was REALLY looking forward to putting my chair on the river bank, soaking my feet, drinking a beer, and listening to the water cascade over the rocks. NOT! Yes we have a back-in on the river but the river does not run unless they release water from the upstream reservoir. This seems to happen once or twice per day. We did see deer during our dog walk along the river and we had a great time with our bird feeders. Our pets included Black Chinned Hummingbirds, Bullucks Oriole, House Finch, and Black-Headed Grossbeak. The farmer is planting corn right next door. The river walk is nice but could be better if someone would clean up the junk cars and associated debris along the path and in the river. We camped at Uncompahgre River RV Park (55+ park) in a Fifth Wheel.

The primary reason for our visit was to see Black Canyon of the Gunnison NP. This campground is about 25 minutes from the park entrance. While we did see closer campgrounds, we didn't see any that were nicer than this one. This NP is at least a three-day park. Shop local: Hidden View Winery and Rocking W Cheese and Milk in Olathe as well as Kinikin Processing in Montrose.

Overall Rating:

This was an excellent family operated KOA whose leadership and staff take great pride in the campground. The facilities and grounds were exceptionally well maintained. We had to adjust our reservation twice because of RV mechanical issues and the staff were very accommodating. Our site was long, level, gravel with a couple trees (rare) on the door side. We had a nice view of the surrounding hillsides. This is an excellent location for getting out and enjoying Colorado's public lands or for just hanging out. We camped at Cortez / Mesa Verde KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Our primary purpose for this seven day visit was to visit Mesa Verde NP. Be sure to do that. We felt like this NP was a three-day park minimum. Be sure to take at least one of the ranger-led tours; we did the Balcony House tour and it was simply amazing to be able to walk through an 800 year old cliff dwelling. Take the time to enjoy the sunset from Park Pointe. We ate at the park's Metatte Room twice; it is excellent. Some would say it is pricey but the food is worth it.

South Fork Campground, South Fork, Colorado

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $34.00
Overall Rating:

We only rate overnight stops if they are really good and we would return for a longer period or are very poor and we are trying to save others from the same fate. THIS ONE WAS VERY GOOD. Wow, what a beautiful park on a running Colorado river. We saw rafters on the river and are told that this is quite a good fishing spot. The management team have been working the park for quite some time and treat it like it was their own. The park was just opening for the season so site selection was limited but we were very happy with the accommodations. Our site rating is lower only because we wanted a site with water and they only had water turned on for a few sites. Ours was really too small for us but we understood the reason. Sites are mostly dirt or gravel and well shaded which is what we like. There are about a dozen back-in sites right on the river. Sites 19, 40, and 42 were our favorite river sites that would accommodate at least a 40 foot RV. Approach to the campground is downhill around a rather tight left-hand turn. If you are a big rig with a towed vehicle be sure to disconnect before attempting to enter. We were fine with an F450 and 40 foot fifth wheel. The park is near the approach to Wolf Creek Pass and just on the edge of the National Forest. Truly a beautiful area if you like the outdoors. We camped at South Fork Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Overall Rating:

We only rate overnight stops if they were really good and we would return of if they are really bad and we would like to save others from a similar fate. THIS ONE IS REALLY GOOD! This was an overnight stop for us on our way from Oklahoma to Texas. The location was very convenient in the town of Dahlhart. The overnight spots were large, level, and gravel. We had plenty of room to pull in and set up w/o unhooking. The park is in the city but has fields and farms nearby. There are plenty of long-term residents and a few leftover Mobile Homes. It appears that you can have a long-term spot which includes a private and gated fenced yard. We would return and if needed stay longer. We camped at Corral RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Foss State Park, Foss, Oklahoma

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $28.00
Overall Rating:

We just love this state park! They have five camping areas with various amenities. Some, like ours, are waterfront. Beautiful sunrise and sunset with a great view of the lake and the dam. The entire lake is bordered by the State Park and the Waschita Wild Life preserve. The sites were large with mature trees, very nice elevated fire ring, patio area, and nice picnic table. The Cedar Point campground sites 1 & 2 are back in and the rest are roomy paved pull-throughs. Site 2 - your door side is right on the lake. It gets really breezy when a storm drops in. Cottonwood campground has 10 full hookup sites. We also drove through the Cutberth campground and really liked it especially site 9 back-in to the woods. Cutberth also has a boat launch. We camped at Foss State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Midpoint Campground, Adrian, Texas

Date of Stay: April, 2018 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

It is what it says it is: A campground with 30/50 water and sewer. The park is just off I-40 on business 40 aka Historic Route 66. There is a run-down café across the street that claims Route 66 fame but I wouldn't bother. There is nothing else around the park that is worth mentioning. The sites are gravel, pull-through, with barriers between sites. The sites are narrow but just wide enough for rig with four slides and awnings. No trees, no grass, no reason to stay for more than a night unless you are working in the area. The onsite host was friendly and made sure we were OK and offered the Wi-Fi code which we didn't need. They say there is a bathroom and shower in the little shed/office, but it was always locked. The neighborhood is rural and a bit sketchy. Folks if you can stand to drive for another 30 minutes or so, I'd push on. In our case, Amarillo was a bridge too far; I was exhausted. We camped at Midpoint Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

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.

Tips for other Campers:

Eat, drink, be merry. Avoid the roads during rush hour which is 0600-1000 and 1500-1900. Really! No fun at all. We were here for client visits and cousin visits so did not do any sight-seeing.
