This is a good park, out on the prairie. There is a genial owner. Flat, long, nicely spaced, and easily accessible sites with good hook-ups that all work properly. This is a no-frills park, but entirely adequate for a stay. Quite windy, but that is pretty much what you get on the Texas plains. The rate of $26 is for 30 amps; 50 amps is an additional $2. We would certainly stay here again
In Good Sam Travel Guide, this park is named, "Morrilton I40/70 RV Park". The rate of $26 reflects the Good Sam discount plus tax. The good: The park is in a pleasant rural settings, with trees throughout the park. All the utilities worked well. The bad: The sites are not at all level and we were unable to level our 40 foot rig without using leveling boards. The access road to the site is narrow, with trees and stumps offering potential obstacles to challenge your driving prowess. With the leveling problem, there is an additional challenge to line up to get access to the water and sewer hookups, which are about 20 feet apart. As previous reviewers mentioned, the road in, is poorly marked and it is easy to get on connecting side roads that have numerous and deep potholes, so check out carefully to be sure to take the correct access road. The park is adjacent to the Interstate, so there is some road noise, although not enough to keep us awake. We probably would stay here again, if we were tired and needed to stop, but it is a bit of a challenge to get in and get properly hooked up.
We stay in this park every winter for several months. We find it one of the nicest parks we have ever been in. The park certainly caters to those planning on an extended stay, so I can understand that campers planning a one or two day stay might feel that the staff is a bit detached or not completely comprehending their particular problems (where to go to eat, where to get gas, etc). However, for us the staff has always been courteous and helpful. The RV Park is situated in a very large County Park with several play grounds, athletic fields, hiking and bike trails. There is a large lake providing boating and fishing and usually a nice breeze on hot days.
A wonderful campground out in the country. This is a spacious campground next to a creek . There were not many folks here, so it was a nice rural setting with level campsites, and lots of room to walk and enjoy the area next to the creek. The utilities were in good shape. All worked well and were easy to get to. We had a nice drive-through campsite, that easily accommodated our 40 foot rig. The rate reflected the Passport America rate. We would stay here again.
This is a very enjoyable park to stay in. The park is very friendly and it is always nice to visit with neighbors with similar interest in RVing. There a a good social program with games at night, and several dining opportunities during the week. The RV sites are generally well spaced. The park is in a rural setting and there is some wild-life to be seen: sand hill cranes, and an occasional owl or deer. That said, the park is still not perfect. Many of the sites have only 30 amp service. There is no cable TV, and one has to pick his site carefully, to have a clear view for TV satellite. Parking big rigs can be problematic in many of the campsites. The caveat is to scout out the campsite you are assigned, to be sure it will meet your needs. In spite of my negative comments, we enjoy our stays at this Escapee park. Have stayed here many times in the past, and will stay here again.
This park has nice flat paved sites for RV's with plenty of room for a toad. There is a picnic bench also on the site. The hook-ups are convenient and everything works well. This is a large park with the RV's lined up in rows, without a lot of landscaping. There is adequate space between the rigs. The only big negative is the noise from the planes landing and taking off from the nearby airport. We use this park as a place to stay when we make periodic visits to the Mayo Clinic. it takes about 30-40 minutes to reach the Clinic from the park. The rate reflects the Mayo Clinic rate. We also got a Passport America rate for a couple of nights for $24/night. If we had come in October, we could have had the Passport rate for a longer period of time. We have stayed here before, and will likely stay here again.
This is a nice park; we have stayed here several times in the past, and the park seems upgraded to some extent since we were here last year. There are a number of quite attractive park model homes, in an area formerly used for RV parking. The park is now gated, and the recreational area with a swimming pool looks nice, although we did not use it. As before the sites are level, and easy to get in and out of. All the hook-ups work well. The park is about a half mile from the highway so traffic noise is not a problem . Our $20/night rate was the Passport America rate. We would stay here again.
This is a huge park and must be a recreational destination at some time during the year. The evening we were there, there were only five or six other campers, so we all pretty much had the park to ourselves, and had a wide choice of places to park our RV. The rate we paid reflects the Passport America rate. The sites were fine, and the hookups satisfactory. The only negative was that the roads are a bit narrow with lots of trees, making navigation a tad difficult. Still it is an attractive park, and we would stay here again.
This is an older park with very narrow streets and RV sites that are very close together. We were fortunate to get one of the few pull-through sites so we did not have to deal with backing in our 40 foot rig. The actual hook-ups all worked OK. There were many old and decrepit RVs and trailers stored nearby, giving the park a rather desperate and unattractive look. There are a number of recreation facilities in the park, which we did not use. Due to the difficulty in navigating the narrow streets with our admittedly long RV, I would avoid staying here in the future.
This a an exceedingly nice RV park with paved, level sites and convenient, up-to-date hookups. The RV sites are easy to get in and out of; the park is very quiet. This is a very attractive well-maintained facility. The rate reflects the Passport America rate.
This is a small campground in a large park that includes a baseball stadium, hiking trails, and a variety of athletic fields. The RV sites are on gravel and are reasonably level. The park is very nice, and gives the RV park a rural setting. The actual RV sites are spaced fairly close together. This park is reasonably priced and is convenient to the nearby Round Rock-Pflugerville area, and not too far from Austin. We have stayed here before and would stay here again. One caveat -- the park does not take reservations, so call ahead to see if there is room for you.
This is a well maintained park and is very attractive. There are new owners and they are doing a good job. The sites are level, easy to get into and to leave. All the hookups are easy to get to, and all work. A nearby railroad result in some train noise, but the railroad is far enough away that this is only an annoyance, not a huge problem. If not for that, we would rate this park as a 10. We would stay here again, if we are in the area.
This is a pleasant RV park,and is very convenient to Interstate 40 for an overnight stay. We have stayed here several times while traveling on the highway. The sites are easy to get in and leave . All the hook-ups work well. The only negative is the noise from a nearby railroad, so while not overwhelming, there was some train noise several times during the night. If not for that I would rate this park as an 8. We would stay here again.
This park is convenient to the Southern part of the San Raphael Swell and the Goblin State Park area. The rate we paid reflects a weekly rate negotiated for a rally, and is about half the regular nightly rate. The park is a flat gravel park and is somewhat dusty. The state of the hookups is variable and the park is rather poorly maintained. There are not many suitable RV parks in the area, and this park, while poorly maintained and not particularly attractive, is satisfactory for either an overnight stay or an extended stay to enjoy the area for hiking, touring or four-wheeling.
This is an nice rural RV Park, about 8 or 9 miles out of Gunnison, across the road from Blue Mesa Lake. We paid the Passport America rate, with an extra $2/night charge for an extra wide site. We got the wider site so we could socialize with fiends who were also staying in the park. The gravel sites are level, and the hookups all work and are readily accessable. There are trees in the area, making the park attractive, but they are placed so we had no trouble getting satellite access for TV. Telephone service with Verizon was poor. There is a hot spot, near the office where telephone calls can be made. Internet via Verizon MiFi, did not work, and the park wi-fi was very very slow. I found that using that service, I was unable to reach some Internet sites requiring passwords. We would stay at this park again, but the poor telephone and Internet access was very annoying.
This RV park in in the middle of Leadville, and is convenient to all of the attractions in Leadville (which is an attractive and interesting old mining town). The park is mostly occupied with working folks. The operators of the park are friendly and helpful. The rate we paid was the Passport America rate. The sites are quite narrow. Our site was facing one way with our neighbor to the right facing the other. That RV was about 3 feet away, when the slide out were extended. On the other hand there was ample room between our RV , on the other side. We had some trouble leveling. The park is not particularly attractive, but this is about the only public RV park in Leadville. In spite of our negative comments, we would stay in this park again if we were in Leadville.
This is a nice park, but seems a little pricey. Our rate of $27 was the Passport America rate. The sites are gravel, but they are level. Spacing between RV's is OK, but nothing exceptional. Verizon service is problematic; the park Wi-Fi worked fine for us. The park is open with few trees. This is a rural park, several miles north of town. The view of the hills and mountains is very nice. This is a pleasant park, but seems a little more expensive than other nearby parks, if one does not use Passport America membership.
This park caters mostly to full-time residents, with a a dozen sites or so for folks staying in the area for a few days. The rate we paid was for a month's stay; daily rates are higher, as you might expect. Electricity is extra, and we will also get an electric bill some time in the future. The sites are level and there is adequate space between the rigs, and the sites are shaded by trees. We had to adjust our position a bit in order to get satellite TV. The management was friendly, and was helpful in being sure we got our mail and packages from Fed-X. Washing of cars and rigs is allowed. We enjoyed our stay, and would stay here again.
The good thing about this park is location. It is near Jackson Lake, and close to the many attractions in Grand Teton Park. The campsites are essentially a wide spot on the side of the road, and not particularly attractive. They are easy to get into, even with our 40 foot rig. For some reason many of the sites had a big mud puddle; in our case right where the leveler would go, requiring a leveling board. While adequate, the sites are hardly private, and since everyone seems to run their generator at the same tome, they are a bit noisy. However, as pointed out, in previous reviews, the National Park is the only game in town and for sure, the National Park is wonderful.
We had a hard time finding our way to and around this park, as the directions in Woodall's were inadequate. As stated in another review, going west, drive to the top of the hill and take a left on to Lakeshore Drive. The map from the grocery store did not indicate where the main campground was, so we pulled down by the lake, and boon docked there. The site was lovely, but we had some trouble leveling, and access by the road was tricky for our 40 foot RV. Still the place is unusually beautiful, and we would surely stay here again. The site is close to Independence Rock, an icon and important stopping place for emigrants on the Oregon Trail.
This campground is all in the open, near the railroad and the highway. However the road noise is not a problem, and there were no trains during the night. The sites are easy to get into and out of, and are flat so leveling is not a problem. The park seems to be well maintained. This is a good place to stay if you have business in nearby Rapid City. The $19 reflects the Passport America rate.
This campground has a variety of sites, some are suitable for 40 foot plus rigs. There is electricity and water but no sewer hookup. Flies are a problem, probably attracted by the horses that seem to be there most of the time on the fairgrounds. Many of the water spigots on the campground leak, apparently poorly maintained. The dump site costs $5 but that does not apply to campers. One must drive out of the campground and then re-enter so It is extremely hard to drive into. We would stay here again if the options to other places were not available, but this place barely passes as being a suitable place to stay.
This is a beautiful park, with terrific RV sites with concrete pads and full hookups. There is a lot of space between sites, and in a country setting with lots of trees. There are also sites for boondocking available for $18. A caveat: An annual pass or a daily pass, daily pass costing $9, is required to get into the park. The place where you pay for the daily pass is a mile or so from where one registers for camping. Call ahead to be sure there is room, before you pay the $9, or you may find yourself in a full park, unable to camp overnight, but having already paid an entrance fee.
This is a nice park. The sites are well spaced and there are quite a few trees. The cable TV works well. The staff is friendly and helpful. All the hookups work well. This is a somewhat older park with gravel, but level sites. We would stay here again.
First the good things about this park: location, location, location. The park is in Valejo, within a 15 minute drive to the ferry where there is free parking and a ferry with a one hour ride to San Francisco. The price we paid reflects the weekly rate, and seemed quite reasonable for RV parks in the San Francisco area. The operators of this park are very helpful. Now for the negative. This is an older park, not particularly attractive, mostly occupied by permanent residents who live in older rigs. The hookups all work, but they are old and antiquated. For example the electrical hookup was on a post about 6 feet off the ground. There are a couple of newer sites, but they were really too short for our 40 foot RV, so we chose a site next to the permanent or semi-permanent residents. We stayed here for 2 weeks, and given its reasonable price and great location, we would stay here again.
A very nice park. The sites are flat and easy to get in and easy to get out. All the hookups work and are easily accessable. The staff is friendly and helpful. This park is actually in Ridgway, about 11 miles South of Montrose. We were only here for one night, but this would be a good place for a more extended stay, to visit the sights in the area. This is a Passport America park, hence the reasonable rate.
This campground is convenient to I-80. The pool and the clubhouse seem to be well maintained. The actual campground itself seems older and less well maintained. All the hookups work well. The campsites are in a pleasant situation, surrounded by high trees. We had no difficulty getting into our spot with our 40 foot RV and leveled easily. The only big negative was that we could not get TV either with satellite or batwing aerial. Cell phones and Wi-Fi using Verizon, and Verizon MiFi worked well.
This is a satisfactory park on Highway 50, for an overnight stay. The drive-through sites were easy to get into and were level. The hookups were accessible and all worked. The sites are a bit close together, but for a one to two day stay, not enough to be objectionable. There is a nearby railroad, and the trains woke us a couple of time.
This small campground is hard to rate, as there is a lot of variability between campsites. We stayed in campsite number 10 and it was so nice we stayed longer than we expected. If you come here, plan to arrive early: 9:30-10:30,on a weekday, as there are no reservations and the campground fills up early in the day. There are no hookups. There is a pit toilet that is clean. Our rate reflected a Golden Age Pass, and the rate was reduced because the water had not been turned on. The campground is at about 7,500 feet so it is nice and cool, with lots of trees around. In campsite 10 we had no trouble leveling our 40 foot rig, but some of the other campsites did not look quite as level.
This is a good campground for an overnight stay. The $19 rate is a Passport rate. The sites have level concrete pads, and are easy to drive into. The campsites are a little short so that our 40-foot RV with a Jeep toad hung over the front a few feet. However the access road in the front and back is wide enough to accommodate this overhang, so it was really not a problem. This is a well maintained park, and we would stay here again.
This is an immaculate campground in the Rockies next to a man-made lake. The volunteer staff are friendly and helpful. The setting is beautiful. The road to the campground is narrow and winding and although manageable, is certainly a drive you will want to take slowly, if you are 40 feet long, as we are, and with a toad. The camping fee mentioned above does not include the Colorado pass required ($7-9/ night or $70/year). We used this campground just for an overnight stay on our way East, but we like it so well we will stay several days on a return trip west.
This is a very attractive RV park with very attentive owner-managers who keep a close eye to be sure the park is in tip-top shape. The sites are nicely spaced, with landscaping - a few trees -- not enough to interfere with satellite TV. The Wi-Fi works well. The only negative is that the park is next to busy I-17 so there is some traffic noise at night. We really like this park. We have been here before and will return again. It is very convenient to the tourist sights in Prescott, Cottonwood and Sedona. The overnight stays are subject to Passport discounts, and the weekly and monthly rates are even more reasonable.
This is a very nice park set in the middle of a very interesting area in Southeastern Utah. The RV's are nicely spaced. All the hook-ups work and are easy to reach. The sites are easy to drive into and are level. There is a small spring-fed pond nearby with trees, picnic tables. A pleasant place to have an evening's libation or a picnic supper. The managers are conversant on the surrounding area and can give good information on hikes or rides to see nearby ruins of Indian dwellings. We enjoy this park; it is our third visit, and no doubt we will stop here again.
This park is not particularly attractive. Although the sites seem adequately spaced, you always have the feeling you are in your neighbor's yard and he is in your's. The gravel road into the sites is narrow. Although we had a pull-through site, we had to drive past and back in. Still, the electric and water work, and although as mentioned on other posts, the sewer connection is far to the rear, we connected OK with a 10 foot extension to our 15 foot sewer hose. The RV park is on a side road (turn west at the stop light ) and we missed the turn. Don't miss the turn or you will have an interesting adventure turning around, without driving a long, long distance to the next town. On the positive side, this is the only RV park in the area and it is perfectly satisfactory as a place to stay during a visit to the area.
This is a good campground on the south side of Moab with a friendly staff and adequate facilities. The rate reflects the weekly rate, given to an FMCA 4-wheelers rally. This is also a Passport America Park,with special rates given off-season and sometimes can be negotiated for a night or two in the middle of the busy season. The spacing between the RV's is adequate. Wi-Fi and cable TV are available at no extra cost. Although the roads are gravel, this did not seem to be any problem and there was not an annoying level of dust. We would stay here again and indeed are planning come for a month next year.
This state campground has excellent facilities with full hook-ups available. The daily rate does not include the Colorado state park pass that is required ($7-9/night or $70/year). The park is very close to I-25, so there is a lot of traffic noise and the nearby lights of billboards and signs are not attractive. The roads are somewhat dusty. If you wish to fish, the ponds are said to be well stocked. This is an OK place for a night or two, but I would not wish to be here for an extended stay.
This is one of our all-time favorite parks. There are a number of sites with water and electrical hook-ups. These sites have level pull-throughs. The only reason we did not give this park a rating of 10 is due to no sewer hook-ups. If you wish to stay in a place with electrical and water hook-ups, it would be a good idea to make reservations ahead. There are also a large number of excellent sites with no water and electrical facilities. Some, but not all, would be a difficult fit for our 40 foot rig. Lost Dutchman State Park is in the desert, in a quiet country setting over-looking Phoenix, and in turn overlooked by the Superstition Mountains. There are several interesting hikes in the park, including one up the mountain, and many other interesting hikes within easy driving distance.
The rate reflects that negotiated by the FMCA for a rally. This is a very nice park, that is designed for park model homes, but most of the lots are empty and thus are used by people in RV's. Many of the people are snowbirds wintering in Arizona. The lot are very wide, with a concrete pad next to the parking space. There is a small gym, a library and other facilities for entertainment. This is a nice park for either an overnight or an extended stay, with a lot of excellent nearby hiking and 4-wheel trails.
The rate reflects that given to Passport America. This is a rural park, and the sites are somewhat primitive. Nevertheless, we did get in alright, managed to level, and hook-up. The sites are not particularly level, but we did mange with our 40 foot RV. There are lots of trees, so satellite TV is out of the question, but cable TV worked OK. We would stay here again for an overnight stay.
This is a campground in transition. The new owners are obviously doing everything they can to upgrade the campground, and in the future it will be a very nice facility. I certainly would stay here again. At the present time, the sites are a little muddy after a big rain. The sewer hook-ups are more than 15 feet from our RV, requiring an extension. A pain if you must hook-up and you are tired. Still as I said, this is a work in progress and the new owners are very nice and working hard to improve the park. The rate is that given to Escapees.
The nightly rate reflects the Passport America rate. This is a very attractive park that is well maintained and with friendly management. There is plenty of room between sites and all of the hook-ups are convenient and working.This a is a very good place to stop for an overnight when on a trip on Interstate 40.
This is a good park to stay for an overnight stay while on the road. The sites are wide, level, and easy to get into. The utilities are easy to get to and everything works. The occasional trains that run through the night are noisy and may be disturbing to some people. This is a Passport park; hence the reasonable rate.
This is a wonderful park, with nice level concrete pads, and all utilities conveniently located. The rate represents that from Passport America, and is a good deal, considering the rates in good RV parks in the Jacksonville area. Airport noise is annoying, particularly around 5 to 7 PM, and is the only reason I would not give this park a 10 rating.
This is a nice park for a place to stay for a few nights. The rate represents Passport America rate. The park has grassy sites that are level. All the utilities work well. There is ample space between RV's. Park is well maintained, but there is little landscaping and few trees. There is a nice little trail for a walk in the woods. Have been here before and would stay again.
This is a large RV Park that is quite full, apparently with rigs that are here all the time. It is a well kept up, with landscaping and well-cared for. The sites are level and the hook-ups all work. In our particular site, the sewer hook up is toward the front of the RV, requiring a hose extension. The rate is a Passport America rate.
This is a great campground in a rural setting, and well worth the five-plus-mile ride from the Interstate to reach it. The campsites have are level concrete pads. The hook-ups are convenient and everything works. There is a nature trail if you want a short walk. The campground is immaculate, making for very pleasant surroundings. The only negative is that the Verizon cell phone service is weak with only "one bar."
This is an urban campground, satisfactory for a place to stay while visiting the Northern Richmond area. The utilities all work, the gravel campsites are level, and there is little traffic noise during the night (much quieter than traffic noise in campgrounds by I-95, which is about a mile or so to the East). This is a bare-bones campground, with no laundry, restrooms or showers. The grounds are well kept-up, with the grass mowed. We paid $5 to become a member with the privilege of staying at the Kisno Village Campground for $25/night for up to two weeks a year.
The first thing to find this place! Leave I-64 via Exit 169 and drive through Lewisburg on Route 219. South of Lewisburg, route 219 splits into 2 one way roads. This is actually in the town of Fairlea. The fair grounds will be on the left of the southbound road, and the campground on the right, about four-plus miles from the Interstate. The best way to identify the campground is the by the electric pedestals and perhaps one or two RV's camping here. There is a sign, but it is not very prominent. We were here in the Fall, and there was only one other camper staying here. The place is poorly lit, so plan on getting here before dark. The campground is a typical fairground campground: a field with lots of hook-ups close together. The sites are level, but grassy, so leveling blocks would be a good idea. The electrical, water and sewers all work, and in October practically no one was here so there was lots of room. I have no idea if there are showers or restrooms available. Our rate includes a 10% FMCA discount. This was an interesting experience; I would stay here again: but get here before dark!
This is a very nice National Forest Campground. We had a site with full hookups. Although the road on the loops are narrow, we had no problem getting our 40' motor home around them and no problem backing into the campsite. We leveled with no problem, and much to our surprise managed to get satellite TV reception in spite of the trees. Campsite is paved, and RV is on concrete pad. Campsites are nicely spaced.
In some ways this is an ideal park in which to stay that is convenient to Louisville. The gravel sites are level, the utilities all work, and the park is neat and well kept up. The sites are somewhat narrow, and there is little room for sitting outdoors to enjoy the evening or to barbecue. The management of the park, we found to be unfriendly and not helpful. Their response to telephone queries for reservations and direction bordered on being rude, and in fact the driving directions were erroneous. If you wish to have family or friends visit, this is not the park for you. Guest are suppose to register and pay an extra fee (for what service?), are not supposed to enter the rest room, and the management reserves the right to limit the number of guest to two! True, such rules are difficult to enforce, but this leaves a feeling that you are unwelcome if you are a grandma (like the owner) and want to visit with your children and grandchildren. I doubt if my wife will consent to stay here again, no matter how clean and neat the park is.
We stay at this campground every time we stay in the St Louis area. It is a clean and spacious campground with level concrete pads. Some sites have trees; others are relatively clear, allowing satellite TV. The sites have electric (some with 30 amp, others with 30-50 amp). However there are no water or sewer hook-ups; hence our ratting of 9 rather than 10. Reservations are needed for weekends during this fall season, and the reservation require an $8 fee.
First, the good: This a a rural park in pleasant surroundings with lots of trees. It is a quiet park. The reasonable $15 rate is a Passport America rate. The gravel pads are firm (no leveling pads needed) and level. Now the bad: The water hook-up did not work and I had to extend a hose to the next site,.The sites were close together, but since there we only one other rig present in out area, we had lots of room. While the trees are nice, satellite reception is impossible. The road to the campground is a dusty gravel road, and your rig and toad, will be covered with dust when you arrive.
We paid $16, because we are Passport America members. The park is essentially a parking lot with a number of RV hookups. The entire lot is gravel, and although level, not very attractive. The direction on how to get to the campground in the PP book are confusing, and we got lost trying to get to the campground. A telephone call to the campground resulted in further confusing directions, and we had to unhook, turn around in a driveway and get directions from a local resident to reach the campground. So, upon arrival, we were not "happy campers." Nevertheless, all the hookups work. Nearby feedlots contribute a lot of flies. In summary, this place is OK for an overnight. Probably less suitable for an extended stay.
This is a very nice Colorado State campground with full hookups. The electrical service is 30 amps. We have Verizon telephone service and had no problem with it. This is a rural campground with Colorado mountain scenery. The attractions of Ouray and Silverton are within easy driving distance. We have a state pass, but if we did not we would have to pay an additional $7 for a daily entrance fee for one vehicle.
This RV park has it all. There are nice level concrete pads, full hook-ups with 30 and 50 amp service, good Wi-Fi connection and cable TV. The sites are nicely landscaped, and the park is very attractive. Our rate was based on an FMCA rate plan for a rally.
This park is only for self-contained units. There are no restrooms, showers, laundry or camp store. That said, this is a well-managed park, with level sites, 30 and 50 amp service and full hook-ups - everything works. The camp sites are easy to get into and are well spaced. There is a huge open space in the middle of the park, so they are not trying to make use of every available square foot for RV sites. There is cable TV with a wide choice of stations, including PBS (which is important to us). The park is very quiet. I think earlier posting about workman going to work early in the morning, may no longer be relevant, due to lay-offs and fewer workers staying at the park.
This is a beautifully situated RV Park in the small western village of Riverside, with a nearby small village of Encampment, between the Sierra Madre and Snowy Mountain Ranges. This is probably the most pleasant campground I have been in for some time. Wake up early in the morning, and you may see deer and antelope nibbling on some of the decorative bushes. There are a lot of shade trees, making the campground physically attractive. First the positives: the owners and the campground hosts are very friendly and helpful. The campground is well maintained, and kept up The sites are level, and most of them among shade trees. The nearby towns and mountains are interesting and there much to do for those interested in history and outdoor activities. The negatives: The campsites are quite close together, and few of the campsites will accommodate big rigs, although the management makes every attempt to get you in a suitable spot. If you have a big rig, you should be sure to get a reservation. We did not, and showed up tired, but we did get a spot. But we were lucky. The trees are nice, but that means that satellite will not work in most spots. Cable TV is available, but the offered stations is a little brief. No PBS. Verizon does not work in the campground, so Verizon MiFi does not work, Wi-Fi is available but it is not secure, and I had some problems with malware. One has to go out on the highway to get Verizon cell phone service. Still, in spite of my negative comments, we enjoyed our stay, would readily stay at this campground again.
This is a very nice state park campground. Electrical sites are available, although not for us, since we did not reserve far enough in advance. The sites are level, and well spaced, so one can reasonably run a generator in the morning or evening, without too much concern about disturbing the neighbors. Verizon cell phones and Verizon Wi-Fi work at the campsites. The dump site is easy to get in to, and easy to use. I give this park a 9, rather than a 10, because full-hookups are not available. A $7 entrance fee, or a yearly pass is required in addition to the camping fee. I believe, greatly reduce fees are available for senior Colorado residents. For most this park will be a destination, not an overnight stop, since the park is some distance north of Steamboat Springs. So I should mention that there is hiking, boating, fishing and 4-wheeling available for outdoor activities.
This is a campground just over the Continental Divide, in a fairly remote part of the state. Most of the trees have been removed due to the pine beetle infestation, making the first impression of the campground a bit stark. However, this clearing gives a good chance to observe moose browsing in a bog down the hill behind the campground. There are quite a few recreational opportunities in the surrounding state park, including hiking, 4-wheeling, and geocaching. So this is a park in a area, to get away from the crowds. The campsites are level, and ours had 30 and 50 amp service. There are no showers, and only vault toilets. Potable water is available. The dump station is several miles away and does not have water available to clean-up or to flush tanks. There are hidden costs. There is a $10 fee to reserve over the internet. In addition a $7 fee for daily park use (or $70 for an annual pass) is required. There are special discounts available for Colorado residents, which would reduce the camping fees.
We stayed at Glacier Basin campground, paying $10/night with a Golden Age pass. We arrived shortly after 9:00 am on a Sunday morning, without a reservation, and were quickly escorted to a campsite for our 40' rig. At this time I think you can get in Glacier Basin w/o reservations, if you arrive early on days other than Friday and Saturday. It is difficult, but not impossible to get around the campground to your campsite in a big rig. Some going backwards and forwards is necessary, and you may get some scratches from the high overhanging branches. The campsites in the non-reserved sites are nice, with quite a few trees. I only give this campground an 8.0 because of the lack of hookups. You must boondock. And for the difficulty in getting a big rig to the campsite. But this is Rocky Mountain National park, one of the most spectacular of the National Parks, and a place that deals quite successfully with the hoards of visitors.
This is a very nice campground in an area without too many good places to stop. (Some of the local Wal-Marts do not allow overnight RV parking.) The campsites are long and level. The campground is in a rural setting in the middle of a large park with swimming, boating, fishing, and other activities available. There are no water or sewage hookups, but 30 and 50 amp electrical hookups are available at each campsite. As with a previous reviewer, the only reason I did not give this campground a rating of 10 was the absence of complete hookups.
This is a beautiful BLM campground. There is are no hook-ups (electric, water, sewer) and there is no water or dump station. There are clean pit toilets. Nevertheless this is a pleasant place with level, gravel campsites for boon docking. The view of the valley and the red rock cliffs is outstanding. There are several hiking trails of a mile or so leading from the campground. This is a very nice BLM campground in a beautiful rural setting. There is a nearby lake that offers fishing. The $6 rate reflects the rate charged for holders of the Golden Age pass.
This is a reasonably priced park in an area where many of the campgrounds are quite expensive. Most of the sites are well spaced and level. The hookups all work well, and the WiFi works well most of the time, but can be a little tricky at the busy times of day. Cable TV works well too. I was particularly impressed that the staff tries to be accommodating, finding us a spot, when the campground was almost full.
This park is well kept up in a beautiful setting in the Ute reservation. There is a mesa to the east, mountains to the west and buttes to the south. The sites are nicely spaced apart. I find only two faults, and those minor. The sites are a little off-level: not so much that leveling was a problem, but enough that I think we were on the edge of having a problem. While the sites were spaced well apart, each graveled parking space was bordered with wood boards. Thus the actually parking space was a bit narrow so that getting situated took a bit of backing and going forward to get our long RV (40 foot) with a long wheel base exactly where we wanted. This is a nice park, where everything works, in a pretty spot and we would stay here again.
This is a well-managed campground in a city setting. The campsites are paved, level and well-spaced. The campground is only average in attractiveness, with lots of pavement and gravel and not a great deal of landscaping. The proprietor is helpful, particularly in pointing out the local sights to visit in the Farmington area. Only 30 amp electric is available. Camping rate is $20/night with the 7th night free. I would stay in this campground again.
This is a wonderful RV park in Big Bend National Park. The sites are well-spaced apart, with a quiet hour of no generators from 8:00 pm to 8:00 am insuring a quiet evening (although a hot one if air conditioning is needed). A short drive of less than a quarter of a mile takes you to the showers, laundry and Wi-Fi access. It is best to be prepared with a bucket to carry dishwater to the appropriate site at the restrooms,which are reasonably close to all RV sites. A couple of cautions: Be sure you do not set up in the "No Generator" area if you wish to use your generator. Also if you have a large RV (our's is 40 foot.) Carefully scout the roads, before you choose your site, as some of the turns are too sharp for a long wheelbase. You can get where you wish, but it may take a little planning.
This is pleasant park in a rural setting, and a very nice place for an overnight stay -- an hour or so from San Antonio. The spot for overnight stays is easy to get into and out of. There is a nice area for walking. I give this a 7 rather than a 9 rating, because the sewer disposal stopped working just as we arrived, and we could not dump. For this same reason the toilets and the showers were not functional. I believe the owners were in the process of repairing this when we left. The non-functional sewer system had little effect on us, but might be a considerable inconvenience to some.
This is a very unattractive park, and with permanent residents living in older, poorly maintained trailers. There is brush and material piled along the borders, and just a generally unkempt appearance of the whole facility. On the other hand, the park is is easy to get into, and the water, electric and sewer hook-ups work, so as a place for an overnight stay it works.
This is a wonderful park. There are level concrete pads in drive-through sites with good connections for electricity, water and sewer. The RV sites are arranged around the fishing ponds. We arrived just for an overnight stay, but would have stayed longer if we had not been pressed for time. Although this park is a bit off the beaten track (about 6 miles from I 10) the park is quiet in a rural setting. This is a Passport park.
We stay in this park several months every winter. The monthly rate, with a motor home and 2 cars is $910.88. (The extra car incurs an extra fee). This is a beautiful campground situated in a large park with boating, bike and walking trails. While the park is in the middle of the city, it is large enough to keep you from feeling cramped. There are a couple of downsides. The RV Park is next to a regional airport with small planes and occasional helicopters. These are quite noisy at times, especially on weekends. Fires are only allowed in portable grills or fire pits, except for four or five community fire pits in the park. This is not a good place if you want a campfire every night. Overall this is one of the nicest RV campgrounds, I have been in.
This is a very nice park with fairly spacious sites. Although there are some sites with trees at the edge, most of the sites are in an open well-maintained grassy area. The sites are flat, so leveling is no problem. They are very proud of their Wi-Fi, which is free, and the reception was excellent. Water, electrical, TV cable and sewer connection are in good shape, and there are no problems. This is a Passport America park, and a good place for an overnight visit if you are on the road.
This is a wonderful Corp of Engineers Park. It is situated by the canal that connects St Lucie with Lake Okeechobee. One can watch the traffic, mostly pleasure boats, pass through the locks. The campsites are level and are paved. There is a table with a covered shelter and a fire pit with each campsite. There is a near by walking path through the tree that goes about one-half mile along the river. The campground is well cared for. The staff checks each site and cleans it up if needed after each party leaves. This camping spot is a real bargain for Seniors with a Golden Eagle Pass.
This is a great park for a reasonable place to stay overnight between Denver and Saint Louis. The park was not busy when we were there, so a pull-thru with our 40-foot motor home was easily accomplished. The space was wide and pleasant. The park is close to the highway, and that is a bit noisy. There is a considerable amount of unsightly junk piled up by nearby sheds, and that was there when we stayed there two years ago. Still for the price, the convenient location, and the fact that all the hook-ups worked fine, this is a good park, and I will stay here again.
This was a nice park for us for an overnight stay. We found the space a little difficult to get into with our 40 foot motorhome which has a wide steering ratio, so we received a few scratches from the trees on each side of the coach: hence a 7 rating rather than an 8. We did have a nice drive-through site and all the hook-ups worked fine. This is an attractive park, quiet, a bit pricey, though, even with the Good Sam discount.
This is an interesting RV park which is reasonably priced, and very convenient to the Pflugerville-Round Rock area. The park is fairly close to the baseball stadium, and if you wish to see the final innings of a minor league game for nothing. Walk over around 9:30 in the evening and catch the late innings. The actual area where RV's are parked is an open space, largely unshaded, on gravel, and not particularly attractive. However the surrounding area is a park, and is attractive. The price, the surrounding park and the convenience to the area are the big pluses to this park. The actual parking area is less attractive and a minus. Hook-ups all worked fine and were no problems.
The facilities are OK, the rest rooms are clean, flies can occasionally be a problem. This is one of the few places to stay that is within striking distance of Boulder, and that is the best thing about this RV Park. Although the park is OK, we never find it a particularly attractive place to stay. One plus is that there are some rather nice walking trails to the north of the fairgrounds.
This is a very difficult campground to review. It appears to be suffering low maintenance, as the sites and facilities not kept up, nor are they particularly attractive. Electrical connections on about half sites seem non-functional. There is no one in the office; one leaves the money in an envelope. On the other hand, there is plenty of room, and since there are few customers, one can have a spacious site. This is a Passport park (although not listed in the book), so the price is pretty good. We did not use the restrooms, so I have no idea what shape they were in. Bottom line: the price was right and this was quieter and more pleasant than a Wal-Mart parking lot.
This park is at the top of Raton Pass, between Raton, NM and Trinidad, CO: a difficult point 250 years ago on the Santa Fe Trail. The surrounding area is beautiful, and the terrific and unusual location is the reason, I am giving this park a rating of 10. That said, there are a couple of negatives. The sites are close together, and you have to turn your RV at just the right time to get into the site without backing. It is not too difficult, but one has to be patient, and drive thoughtfully. Due, I supposed to the remote location, the WiFi connection was somewhat sporadic. The staff was very pleasant, and made every effort to make our stay a pleasant one. I would stay here again , and in fact, would make an extra effort to stay here: the location is just that nice.
The $17.15 we paid reflects $2 for 50 amp service, and the 10% Good Sam discount. This a super park for an overnight stay or even a 2-3 day stay to see some of the sights south of Grants. The park is clean, well maintained, everything works, and the sites are easy to get in and out of. The park is not terribly attractive, hence the 9 rating.
This is a very nice park, well maintained and well managed. We paid $120 a week, and stayed 3 weeks, 3 days. (This is a Passport park, with reduced rates for short stays.) This park is in the Verde Vally, close to great hiking and four wheeling: beautiful scenery. The park is close to the highway, but highway noise is not troublesome. Although a bit loud if you sit outside, not a problem in your RV at night.
This is a gem of a campground, for a one or two night stay. It is a little off the beaten track, which adds to its charm. The campground is in a rural setting, with long pull-through sites. It is a quiet place, in a grove of pecan trees. There was a herd of about fifty deer browsing in the in the field next to our rig.
