Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center State Park, White Springs, Florida

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $18.00
Overall Rating:

Our 4th time here, we like this park. Site was 100 ft long but L shaped. No problem getting in with my 38 ft 5th wheel. Good showers with plenty of hot water and strong water pressure. Park is clean and super quiet. No sewer (typical of Florida state parks) but convenient dump station. Easy access from I75 Only complaint is the power as the 30 amp is weak; I popped the breakers twice! We camped at Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Ballyhoo Family Campground, Crossville, Tennessee

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $32.00
Overall Rating:

My GPS brought me in from I-40 the long way around. I recommend that you call park for directions. Owners were very pleasant and went out of their way to help with next days routing. Park is very large but had few campers. Lots of open grassy areas, with small lake and forested areas as well. Extremely quiet. Site was fairly level although some leveling was required. Noted that several nearby sites were similar in level. Restrooms were clean and appeared adequate. Showers had a door plus an interior curtain with hooks to hold clothing. We camped at Ballyhoo Family Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Whittington Woods Campground, Whittington, Illinois

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

Easy access from the interstate. Attended led us to our site and helped us park. Site was level with mature trees on both sides. Chickens roam freely but did not get underfoot. Sites were spaced well and included pull-thrus and backins. Very pretty park with many trees Negatives were a timed shower that was weak in flow and an occasional train (with whistle) Overall, we would stay here again if in the area. We camped at Whittington Woods Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Fleming Park / Lake Jacomo Campground, Blue Springs, Missouri

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $32.00
Overall Rating:

County campground on outskirts of kc, near lake but not within walking distance. Sites are large and well spaced, most with some shade. My GPS found it but some won't, use google maps. Can't make same day reservations, go on Web site to register. We showed without reservation and got full service site on a Thursday but park was 3/4 full. Laundry available good water pressure at site We camped at Fleming Park / Lake Jacomo Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Good for an overnight. We were only camper in this small campground. All sites were level gravel and clean. Campground was 1 mile off of I29 and easy to find. Entry road and interior road was dirt but easy to navigate. Host was personable and provided ground mat for rig steps??? Camp was surrounded by corn fields Only issue was am black flies. We camped at Rock Port / RiversEdge Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Lafayette Park Campground, Gothenburg, Nebraska

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

This is owned by the city but operation is contracted out. Entry roads are narrow with tight turn on the exit for my 38 ft 5th wheel. Park is right beside a very nice large city park with plenty of grass and a 2 mile walking path. Operators were great! Extremely helpful in resolving a tire problem also gave me my pick of open sites. It had rained the previous day and sites were soft and muddy withstanding water at each end / needed my 4 wheel drive! Sites had shared utilities so you could have them on wrong side. Park only had 4 other campers so spacing and utilities were not an issue. I got the impression that the park is rarely crowded. Lastly, you can hear the trains! Not too bad if you run your ac all night. We camped at Lafayette Park Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Carter Lake, Loveland, Colorado

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $26.00
Overall Rating:

Directions to campground were poor. We had no Internet or telephone service but 44 channels over the air tv. We were in the new section of the south campground up on a hill overlooking the lake. Site was somewhat level. Very breezy in late afternoon. 20 miles to Loveland. We camped at Carter Lake in a Fifth Wheel.

Garden of the Gods Campground, Colorado Springs, Colorado

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $44.00
Overall Rating:

One of the better colorado springs campgrounds. Construction on the public road out front made access and exiting annoying When arriving, park attendan leads you to your site (it's a large campground). Propane refills available delivered to your site. We camped at Garden of the Gods Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Tunnel Mountain Village II Campground - Electric Hookups (Parks Canada, Banff National Park, Alberta

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $38.00
Overall Rating:

This park was extremely crowded. We arrived w/o reservation and almost didn't get in.

Sites are curved off the interior roads - not too friendly for big-rigs (mine is a 38' 5th wheel) - barely got in. Interior roads are paved and good - turns are wide - easily navigable

Dumpsters can be quite a walk, not many and it's a big campground.

Very quiet thou. We camped at Tunnel Mountain Village II Campground - Electric Hookups (Parks Canada in a Fifth Wheel.

Snake River RV Park & Campground, Idaho Falls, Idaho

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

Staff was extra-friendly and helpful. RV Tech on staff, he had an autistic helper who was a very pleasant and helpful young man.

Interior road has a very tight turn at entryway with large boulders on each side - once by that it's ok. Have long-term residents on A loop who leave their cars in awkward locations. We camped at Snake River RV Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Crystal Hot Springs, Honeyville, Utah

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

Park doesn't like to accept rigs over 35'. They have large pull-thru's but reserve them for "emergencies". Site's available are back-ins, dirt and our site was not level - had a ditch running thru it. Although park is well off the hwy, it was noisy. Expensive for what you get. Hot Spring admission is not included with camping fee. Railroad is nearby but we didn't hear it.

Interior roads, while wide, had potholes. We camped at Crystal Hot Springs in a Fifth Wheel.

K'san Campground, Hazelton, British Columbia

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $38.00
Overall Rating:

Wide, long spacious sites, dirt/grass surface but level. 30 amp power, water pressure good with sewer. Utilities are well placed. Wi-Fi is strong: best of any campground I've been in. About 50 sites, very few long-term residents. Interior roads are wide and paved. Park was immaculately clean. Most sites are pull-thru.

If you stay at the campground you get a .05/liter discount at the local Esso station and 10% off at the local grocery store.

Scenery is excellent with Mountain views to the east and west with a river running beside the camp. We camped at K'san Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Burnaby Cariboo RV Park and Campground, Burnaby, British Columbia

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $69.00
Overall Rating:

Price paid was in CAD and included an up-charge for rig over 32'.

Sites are tight, tight, tight and access roads are narrow, I had a privacy hedge on 1 side and an access walkway on the other. Services (power, water, sewer) are at back end of sites; I needed 2 water hoses and 2 sewer lengths to reach them.

Parking for tow vehicles was 100 yds away, inconvenient.

Campground is near both a railroad track as well as Sky-train so you'll hear them all the time.

Large city park within 400 meters - good pet walk area as well.

Lots of amenities (pool, hot-tub, exercise room, lounge, etc) but park is family friendly so you'll have to deal with lots of youngsters in pool and spa.

Vancouver Island tours pickup at front (6:30AM), which was convenient. They offer pet walking for $10 CAD while on tour.

Location is convenient to malls and Sky-train station. We camped at Burnaby Cariboo RV Park and Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Gold Trail RV Park, Clinton, British Columbia

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

Got in around 1PM and had my pick of sites, took a pull-thru in the middle; plenty of room - both width and length for my 38' 5th wheel and tow vehicle. Site was level, 30AMP power was good. I'll echo the other comments about the owner - he's strange but friendly. Only was overnighting so didn't hook up water or sewer. Interior roads were plenty wide; in and out was easy.

Went to the BBQ - had the "road kill" meat - tasted and looked like pork but he wouldn't tell me. The BBQ was excellent and at 14.99 CAD was a good value as well.

My only knock was the road was noisy with big trucks until 10. We camped at Gold Trail RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
