Great RV park just outside the hustle and bustle of Phoenix. A small mountain range separates the city lights so you have nice dark nights. Sites are nicely spaced apart. There are trails all over the place for hiking and biking. Just 15 minutes from stores and restaurants and free Wi-Fi at the Safeway. Will stay here again if in the area.

Very new state park and campground. Lots of space between sites. Great visitors center to set up your cave visit. Great 3 mile trail up a hill behind the campground. Easy jumpoff point to Bisbee and Tombstone. Catch free Wi-Fi at the McDonald's close to the interstate. Would stay here again.

What a gem of a place. One of the best parks I have ever stayed in. If you have a tent or small RV you can camp right next to the 40 foot rock monoliths. Larger RVs camp just outside the rocks. It is an easy two hour drive to the Gila Cliff Dwellings and 30 minutes to Silver City. Very peaceful at night. Only reason it did not get a 10 is there is no dump station. We will stay here again.

90% of this park are full time mobile homes. The good part of this park is it is right next to a Wal-Mart and other places in town. The pool was closed and you had to pay big time for Wi-Fi (that is so last decade for a private park). The sites are close together but there is a privacy wall between them. Sewer hook-up was so far away I had to back up in the morning before I could dump. Would have stayed at the State Park but it was closed due to the fires.

There have been many bad reviews of this park but it was not all that bad. It is close to the highway but not close enough to rattle your rig. The Wi-Fi was great. The best reason to come here is the closeness to Carlsbad Caverns just 7 miles up the park road. Guadalupe NP is just a half hour down the road. It beats driving the 25 minutes from Carlsbad everyday. We would stay here again.

Great park if you're in a tent or a small RV. This is the highest state park in Georgia as it sits on top of Black Rock Mt. above Clayton. The road up here twists and turns. The up side to this campground is that it is on top of a mountain and connects to many trails. The camphosts are great (as they are in most state parks in Georgia). The drawback is many sites are very close together (for a state park) and the bathrooms were just so-so. So pick a good site and a tent or small RV and you are set. We will stay here again.

The best thing about this park is the value. For $22.50 you have a pool, shuttle to the casino and Mississippi River, full hook-up, and cable TV. The small drawback is the park sits behind a small industrial park and it has few trees. For a night, it is a great place. We'll stay here again if passing though or staying for a few days.

Great place to get away from it all. 5 mim. walk to the beach with very few people. A few shops a slow 8 miles down the road. Good trails close by. Will stay here again when life gets to hectic.

This is a good average park for Alaska. It has good easy sites to park in and great people in the office. Wi-Fi was just so-so as you have to sign-up for a plan. This is a good base for travel into Anchorage since the campgrounds there are not so great. We would stay here again.

This is one of the best parks in Alaska. The only negatives are the price & the distance from downtown Fairbanks. Other than that, this is a great place to spend some easy days. The park staff was the best ever; very informative and helpful. Sites were big and easy. The float plane base is a great bonus. We will stay here again.

Overall this is a good place to stay while in Talkeetna. The bad part is the fact that many sites are very close together, parked at odd angles. However, the office people are nice, and the park is within walking distance of town right next to the train station. It is cool to see the train let off and load-up cruise ship passengers.

This is a great park to take it easy. The owners were very nice, and there was a nice small shop also. Sites were pretty tight, but I spent most of my free time at the overlook of the inlet and the Kenai River. It is an easy walk into town or down on the beach.

A great RV park in Seward & one of the best in Alaska. The only reason it did not get a 10 is that it is 6 miles from the town. But for $5 a person, the park will drive you down to town and pick you up. Not a bad deal. We did this during the 4th of July, and it worked out great. The park is next to a large stream which was good for walking your dogs. It sits far enough away from the main road for a nice quiet stay. The Wi-Fi was pretty good, but then again we were parked right next to the main building.

As far as views go, this is a great spot to camp. We were only one site away from a true Ocean View, but the view from the bluff was great. It is a short bike ride or drive to the spit and downtown Homer. Why not a higher rating? I had to hike up the big hill to the washroom to get the Wi-Fi to work. And the cost is a little too high.

The best thing about this park is that it is located across the street from a Costco. The location is OK as it is a few miles from downtown. However, you had to go to the washroom to use the Wi-Fi. The sites were very close together, and there are many permanent RV's hanging around. The RV park is just a small slice of the overall mobile home park in the area so the neighborhood is not the best. For $40 a night, I did expect more.

Good place overall to stay while in Valdez. The best part was the very fast internet which is lacking in most of Alaska & the Highway. It is an easy walk to the dock or town and right next to a great grocery store. The reason it goes down to a 7 is the fact that it was a little too expensive and no character in the campground. However, the high mountains in the back are pretty cool. Sites are easy to park; long, & wide for all rigs.

If you are going to stay in Tok, the Sourdough is the place. It has the most character of any park on the Alaska Highway. The only reason it did not get a 10 is because the Wi-Fi is very limited. Other than that, this is the perfect park with great sourdough bowl soups and breakfast. There is entertainment most nights and a pancake toss for a free breakfast. The sites have lots of trees for extra privacy. We will stay here again on the way out of Alaska.

An above average park on the Alaska Highway. The views of the Kluane Mountains are to die for. And there is even a nice short trail next to the campground. For Wi-Fi it is best to sit on the back porch of the office - with great views. The campground is one large gravel lot so not much character. Would stay here again if in the neighborhood.

One of the best campgrounds on the Alaska Highway. If your staying in Whitehorse, this is the place. From the nice office and staff to lots of trees all over the campground. There are even old construction trucks from the 1940's here. Everything is great here. Make reservations as this place can sell-out.

The best campground on the Alaska Highway. For $25 you get a beautiful lake view. Easy on and off for large rigs. Nice and quiet. Gas discount with your camping fee. Facilities are OK. There is a great museum & store here too. Will stay here again anytime.

Very large campground with plenty of room. The facilities are great. There is a little trail behind the campground to walk. The campground is one large gravel pit with a few trees here and there. The restaurant & shop are great, but the food is very expensive. However, the campground fees are not expensive. We will stay here again if in the area.

The best part about this place is that it is right across the street from the Springs which we spent most of our time in. as for the park, it is just average on the Alaska Highway. Easy on and off but no character. Good place for just one night.

At first you feel like your in a junk place. Very muddy with junk all over. The sites are close together. The internet works fine in the commons area which does stay open all night. Not too bad of a place just for one night, but not more.

Nice quiet place off the main road to Hinton. That's great, since the town is nothing to boast about other than a go between town. The downside is the price - quite high for a rural place. The parking is easy and the facilities are OK. The people that run the place are great. Nice and quiet for a KOA.

As far as the views, this is one of the best parks we have ever stayed in. High mountains on all sides. However, the money paid for this is way too much for what you get. To access the Wi-Fi, you have to go to the office. Ok, we have done that at many parks. But here the office closes at 7:00. So I had to use the internet in my truck parked next to the office. There is building all over the park as if they will sell the land soon to developers. Next time we will try to stay in a government campground.

The price is not bad for a city campground. The Wi-Fi is not strong, but it is great upstairs from the office. If you camp on top of the hill you get great views of suburban Calgary. We would stay here again.

Great place to stay for the night. Wish I could have stayed here for awhile. Nice wide sites next to Lake Mitchell, which has a few trails around it to walk the dogs. Close to town, but far away enough to feel out in the open. I'll stay here again, but for a longer time.

KOA's have been hit or miss in the past. This has to be the best KOA I have ever camped at. Wonderful views of the area and just over a mile to the East entrance of Glacier NP. The host was very nice and it had a good store. Sites were spaced OK. A good walk through the forest to the Upper St. Mary Lake or the St Mary River. If your on this side of Glacier NP, do stay here.

I was surprised by some of the low ratings of this park. I thought it was great by National Park standards. The great part about this park verses other private parks around the area is the peacefulness. No kids running around screaming. This part is central to all places in Yellowstone and it is next to a great garage to keep your truck/RV running. The sites are close together but it does have a tree for every site. If you need a base camp for Yellowstone, don't waste your money on the outside private parks - stay here.

Great place to stay. Easy sites to set-up & good Wi-Fi. A negative would be it is close to the interestate so you have that noise. The front office was great and helpful. I would stay here again.

The best part about the park was the front desk - the woman who checked us in was very nice and helpful. However, the park sits in the middle of the city, right on a commercial road close to many services and restaurants. The sites were pretty close together with several semi-permanent RVs there. It is good for an overnight, but not for a base camp to explore the area.

Overall this is an average private park close to the interstate. The good part is it is far enough from the highway that you do feel like you're away from it all. The campground is set in some trees, but you don't feel like it in the camper. There seemed like a few long-term campers were there, and the music was very loud until past 11 pm.

Top-notch campground and state park. Most sites are spaced nicely, and even on a weekend it was very quiet. Clarks Hill Lake is pretty low but you still have great views. The park itself is pretty large with 15 miles of trails for biking - some difficult but fun. Some sites are a little uneven and can take awhile to level, but otherwise a great place to stay and not too far away from Augusta.

Great campground close to Orlando. It's 30 minutes to Disney and 1 hour to Universal. Wide sites and very easy parking. Just outside the noise of Orlando so the park is very quiet at night. This park has many trails (though they are difficult for bikes: too much sand), but wild citrus trees everywhere. (Though your not suppose to pick any. Oops.) This park will get a 10 in the future once the campground has some shade. In December this is not too bad, but I'm sure this is a very HOT park in the summer. We'll stay here again when we come to Orlando.

For the price, this campground is not worth it. I will stay at another the next time I'm in the Keys. The location is OK at MM 20 on US 1. But overall there were too many negatives. This is the first KOA that I've stayed at that had horrible bathrooms. As with most Keys campgrounds the sites were very close together and are very difficult to back into. Many kids at this park and the noise factor was very loud (we have a kid and she said they were too loud). One night some kids shot off some fireworks and blew a transformer so we had no power for 2 hours. Unlike Fiesta Key KOA there are no sunset views (one of the main reasons to come to the Keys).

We only stayed here for one night as we were on the way to South Florida and the park is within a few miles of I-75. When we come back we'll stay several days. This park is very nice & quiet with excellent facilities for a state park. Nice lakes & trails (though the trails have lots of sand so biking on them can be difficult). We even saw Bison at the park. Most RV sites have plenty of foilage for privacy.

First the bad - sites are very close together making it very difficult to park. We were put right next to the restroom, and our slid-out went OVER the path to the laundry room. The park is right on the main road so the traffic is VERY loud during the night. The good part is it is centrally located so you can walk or bike anywhere in town. Also the park is right on the beach so beach access is very easy. If we stay at this park again we'll either splurge for the beach sites or go cheap with sites far from the road.

This park is a gem. Good base to visit the Golden Isles of Georgia. The space between the rigs is just OK for a public campground but just do a little walking or biking around the park to get away. I was going to use this park as a base to visit the local sites but ended up spending more time in the park. If you like biking off-road this place has many trails with lots of twists & turns (not many hills since this is the Georgia Coast). Cable TV is good (to check on the ever changing weather) but the Wi-Fi only worked in the office, not on our RV site (and we were pretty close to the office). This is the only reason the park did not get a 10.

If your staying in Tuscaloosa in your RV then this is the place. Though only a few miles from the city, this campground seems worlds away. Nice sites and a quiet place even on a football weekend. The only reason I did not give it a 10 was the fact that the campground host did not have the courtesy of leaving the gate open after a late ending football game of which 75% of the occupants of the campground went to. So every one had to park their cars inside and outside the gate since the campground is a half-mile past the gate. So if your going to be back by 10:00 this is a 10 campground.

What a great place to spend a fall weekend. Although this was a crowded time at the park, the campground was very quiet and peaceful. This State Park has everything you need for the outdoor enthusiast. A great 8 mile hiking trail around the park, heart busting mountain bike trails, and horse trails. Though the park has cable, there are only a few channels. However, with all the activity outdoors you really don't have time for TV. You can spend a week here and never get bored.

Vogel is a gem in the Georgia State Parks System. With a setting in the mountains the drive here is excellent: with both hands on the steering wheel of your RV. The activities for the outdoor enthusiast are endless. The trail to Blood Mountain is a great way to spend the day and shed some pounds. The easy 1 mile trail around the lake is beautiful. So why did I mark this park down to a 7? While the campground is one of the most scenic I've been to, getting a site for an average sized rig is difficult. For a popular fall weekend we arrived just before sunset with all the large sites taken. The last pull-through was just taken by TENT CAMPERS! We did find a beautiful site with a stream next too us but it took almost 1 hour of back and forth with the help of many near-by campers to help us out. Not a great way to kick-off a weekend. If this park can keep the tents off large RV sites, Vogel will get a 10.

If your a mountain biker, Ft. Yargo SP Campground is a great place to stay. Many miles of trails to keep you busy for all levels. The lake front sites are hard to come by and are very close together. The non-lake sites are spaced far enough apart to give you plenty of privacy. The drive to the campground after you enter the park is a few miles, but this means your usually far away from the day use people. The park entrance is in the city of Winder which offers plenty of grocery shopping and restaurants.

Doll Mt. Campground is a nice place to get away from it all for a few days. The campground sits high on a bluff overlooking Carters Lake but the trees have grown so much that you can just see it through the trees. Plus sitting on the bluff makes lake access a little difficult from the camp sites. Other than that, it is a nice, quiet campground with plenty of space between sites. Sites 27-32 have nice decks.

As a native Georgian and a camper in many parks in this state, Old Federal is the best campground in the state for the views. 95% of the sites have views of Lake Lanier. The only reason I did not give it a 10 is the bathrooms are sometimes not clean. Everything else is perfect. Most sites are wide enough apart to give you plenty of privacy. Old Federal is a great place to take a walk or a bike ride in the morning or dusk. This is a great place to stay for several days just to get away from it all.
