Cochise Terrace RV Resort, Benson, Arizona

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

We stayed her for only one night and it was certainly convenient for that purpose. The reason for the average review is that the short-term rv area is just a big, black asphalt lot. There are small islands between sites for the utilities, including a curb our sewer hose had to traverse. We'd probably stay here again for another night, but I wouldn't call this a destination park. Perhaps there are better sites if you stay several nights. We camped at Cochise Terrace RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Willcox / Cochise, AZ KOA (formerly Magic Circle RV Park), Willcox, Arizona

Date of Stay: January, 2018 - $36.00
Overall Rating:

We have a winner! This park had the fastest wifi we've yet encountered in six+ years of RV'ing. The rules did not say "no streaming", so after a month of mediocre wifi elsewhere it was a joy to stream away with zero problems. The staff was friendly, the site was good, clean gravel, and it was easy on/off the interstate. This will become our regular stop on the way to central Arizona. We camped at Willcox / Cochise, AZ KOA (formerly Magic Circle RV Park) in a Motorhome.

Mesa Spirit RV Resort (55+ park), Mesa, Arizona

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

Rate reflects monthly rate. This is a huge snowbird park with lots of amenities and activities, none of which I could take advantage of because I was here for medical reasons. It was very quiet and neighbors were friendly. Our street (K) was 95% RVs, while others have park models only. Wifi was very good. Water would shut off temporarily about once a week because some yahoo would drive over water lines. They broke their own refund policy to return about $600 when we able to leave earlier than planned. That earned our good will and we would return. We camped at Mesa Spirit RV Resort (55+ park) in a Motorhome.

Western Way RV Resort (55+ park), Tucson, Arizona

Date of Stay: December, 2017 - $50.00
Overall Rating:

All short term RV sites were gravel with concrete patios without furniture. Although it felt a little cramped, it was very quiet. There was both free and paid (high speed) wifi; we used only the free (that was off and on the first two days then fast and dependable the third day). This is the perfect place from which to visit the Desert Museum, Old Tucson, Gate's Pass, and Saguaro National Park. We camped at Western Way RV Resort (55+ park) in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

The only restaurants reasonably close are in the small strip mall across Kinney Rd that cater to the retirement communities. Los Nopales was OK Mexican food with friendly service. House of Cheng was the worst Chinese food I've every had. You can do much butter buying frozen at Walmart.

The MotorCoach Resort, Chandler, Arizona

Date of Stay: December, 2017 - $65.00
Overall Rating:

This place is OK for a short stay because after 3 nights the constant noise made us want to leave. The layout is strange: almost all sites are pull ins so you have to unhook your toad. There are no patios at all: no pads/grass, no tables, no grills, etc. There are no amenities; this is not a resort by any definition, especially in the snowbird haven of Phoenix. I never was able to connect to wifi with my iPad. I called the owner on the third day but he knew nothing of this problem, although he offered to send a tech. All this for only $65. We camped at The MotorCoach Resort in a Motorhome.

Pie Town RV Park, Pie Town, New Mexico

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

This campground is at 7,700 feet elevation in a very pretty and remote part of New Mexico. There are 5 pull-thrus, 3 of which are long enough for big rigs. Wife was excellent; Verizon is 3G. The communal grill, fire pit, and tables were nice (see photos). The sites lacked patios and tables. Sites were all gravel and a little unlevel. No cable TV but no trees to block satellite. The vegetation is pinyon, juniper, and Ponderosa pine. The whole area is mountainous and beautiful. All in all, this is a very nice place to stay. We camped at Pie Town RV Park in a Motorhome.

Carlsbad KOA, Carlsbad, New Mexico

Date of Stay: March, 2017 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed a Saturday night in late March and the park was full. Maybe that's why the wifi was not usable (Verizon was OK). There were lots of families and I got the feeling that a lot of locals camped here just to get away and get outside. For us, a retired couple, this wasn't what we'd call a "destination" park, but it was fine for a place to stay a night or a few. Sites were wide, hookups were good, and the dog park was nice (see uploaded photo). We didn't try the food. As usual for a KOA, the price was high. We camped at Carlsbad KOA in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

If you can, avoid the highway between Pecos and Carlsbad. The oil and gas truck traffic was horrendous, and the highway littered with gravel and rock. Our windshield was hit by a rock as a truck passed going the other way. It left a ping-pong ball sized souvenir.

Maverick Ranch RV Park at Lajitas Resort, Lajitas, Texas

Date of Stay: March, 2017 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

We never could contact them by phone to make a reservation; no one ever answered or called back. I finally called the resort hotel front desk and they passed a note to the RV park side to call me, and they did. This is a nice park from which to explore the area, but compared to staying at Study Butte, you'll add 40 minutes to a round trip to Big Bend. The streets are wide, the sites are wide, and there's a concrete patio and table at each. Wifi was good and there is Verizon 3G. The resort next door is beautiful, the restaurant is elegant, and there are lot's of activities; just be prepared to open your wallet. The RV park pool was open in March. IMO, this is the best RV park in the Lajitas/Study Butte area. We camped at Maverick Ranch RV Park at Lajitas Resort in a Motorhome.

Ajo Heights RV Park, Ajo, Arizona

Date of Stay: February, 2017 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

Based on our driving around Ajo, this is the best RV park in town. The campground is very clean and nicely landscaped, with a cactus garden and clean colored gravel around the sites. Wifi was fast and dependable. On the negative side, sites were narrow and there's no patio area with table. We will stay here again. We camped at Ajo Heights RV Park in a Motorhome.

Quail Run RV Park, Quartzsite, Arizona

Date of Stay: February, 2017 - $31.00
Overall Rating:

This is a big, plain, park with wide paved streets, wide gravel sites, concrete patios with no tables, and good utilities. Wifi is Tengo internet and you get one hour/day free; we just used our Verizon hotspot, so don't know how fast it was. There is no cable or broadcast antenna, but few trees to block satellite. There were plenty of empty sites in mid-February. There was a small, fenced dog run. It was a good value and we would probably return for a short stay. We camped at Quail Run RV Park in a Motorhome.

Benson KOA, Benson, Arizona

Date of Stay: February, 2017 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

There is little good about this campground, but also little bad. The good points are the dog areas and being half a mile from town, out in the desert. The bad points are: narrow sites, slow wifi (good Verizon), ancient sewer connection too wide for modern hoses, and the fact that all pull-thru sites face south (which means that motorhome windshields face the sun most of the day). The price of $45 is way too high for what you get. We camped at Benson KOA in a Motorhome.

Canyons of Escalante RV Park, Escalante, Utah

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

This is an adequate campground for a stay in Escalante. It's another of those cases where it's the best choice in town (if you want FHUs), although the popularity of Escalante is growing and a new RV park was under construction at the west end of town. Sites are narrow, dirt, and a little unlevel, but there are trees for shade. There is no good place to walk the dog other than the parks narrow dirt roads. We saw quite a few bicyclers from Europe and the campground was full. As for communicating with the outside world, Verizon was 1x but the campground wifi was astonishingly fast. We camped at Canyons of Escalante RV Park in a Motorhome.

Wonderland RV Park, Torrey, Utah

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

I agree with other positive reviews. This is a very clean campground with nice landscaping. It was full mid-September, and we just barely got reservations a week in advance. They put our 34-ft Class A in a great back-in at the far end of the park, with grass on both sides and trees for shade. Although there is no fenced pet area, there was a large grassy field next to a farm where horses would come looking for a treat. We left our small dog in the RV while exploring Capitol Reef. It never occurred to us not to (if there was such a rule, we didn't know about it). There are only two negatives, neither serious. First the wifi was OK, but the Verizon 4G was much better. Second, there is no view of the stunning red cliffs on the north side of Torrey, which light up at sunset. There was a good view of the mountains to the south. We camped at Wonderland RV Park in a Motorhome.

Duke's Slickrock Grill, Campground and RV Park, Hanksville, Utah

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

My overall rating is relative to RV parks in general, not those in Hanksville. Duke's is the only game in town, and Hanksville is a great central location for exploring Utah's red rock country. The park is a dirt parking lot with tight sites without patios or tables. 3/4 or more of the sites were occupied by workers for a project on the road to Capitol Reef. With the additional transients like us, the park was full the 3 days we were there. Wifi was OK except at busy times (like after 5 pm) so we had to switch to Verizon 3G. On the positive side, there were large lush grass area for tenters that were great for dog walking. Also, the restaurant was very good. If you want to visit Hanksville then lower your expectations and stay here. We camped at Duke's Slickrock Grill, Campground and RV Park in a Motorhome.

Green River KOA, Green River, Utah

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

We were happy with our site, which one of the 50 amp pull thrus facing what appeared to be an overflow or future area at the east end of the park (it was empty). The 50 amp area is dirt and not nearly as nice as the 30 amp area with grass and trees. We had a good view and the park was quiet. The wifi was very poor so we used the good Verizon 4G service. If we were to return to Green River we'd stay here. We camped at Green River KOA in a Motorhome.
