Although the park advertises free WiFi availability, the executive section has zero connectivity. The owner has a few sites in that section with DSL capability for an additional fee of $20/month. We have a Verizon hotspot that would not connect either. The front desk informed us that the park was a Verizon dead zone because Verizon will not pay the fees to connect a cell tower in the area. If voice or Internet on Verizon is important to you, forget this park!! Their new feature is a dog park which is located at the back end of the property and is a mud pit for the most part, with lots of stickers. The park is located a few yards away from Interstate 10 so road noise is constant. We failed to appreciate the positive features of the park others have stated.

The Oasis has taken on the qualities of a permanent trailer park. We observed many permanent trailers, kids toys littered outside, and barking dogs at all hours of the night. Upon check in, the clerk offered the CATV listing with many exceptions to the quality of reception. We never found a WiFi signal during the few days we camped there. The park is beginning to show wear and tear. Hopefully, the park will find a new owner to turn things around.

This park is located in between a heavy equipment rental facility and a senior apartment residence. It is close to sightseeing attractions and national parks. The town location, however, brings road noise and business noise from the heavy equipment company next door. It has no pool or recreation facilities. A good spot for a one night stopover.

We failed to confirm the positive reviews previously written. The park is overpriced for the space and marginal amenities. They offer a 12 channel CATV, WiFi that comes and goes, no pool or hot tub as of May, and a dusty graveled surface. No AT&T wireless signal in the park--one needs to drive to town for that. The tall trees weep a clear sap all over the campsites, cars, and rigs. We had to wash off our windshields every day to drive. A big disappointment and we will try some other park when we drive through the area!!

One of the nicer parks in the Albuquerque area, but big rigs beware. We observed a large Class A motorhome towing escorted around a corner then becoming impaled on the split rale fence on the corner. Tight turns. The owner is around the park continuously and is very solicitous, eager to help you. The park is gravel and dust based. One day the owner spent time cleaning up vacant sites with a leaf blower. The process blew a fine red dust all over our rig, windows, tow, and grill. If we need to be in this location for business, we'll stay again and ask the owner not to blow dust around our campsite.

A freak dust/wind storm prompted us to pull into this park off US 84. We called from the road a few minutes before arriving, and the owner stated she had a water/electric site available for the day. She was most helpful in a grim weather situation so kudos to the park. However, the campsite was 20 feet from the active US 84 roadway. The rear of the park is bounded by an active railroad. Either way, noise is the norm. But we couldn't complain under the adverse weather situation and were thankful they had space for us.

This is the only decent campground in the Abilene area so we stay here by default. Some of the managers are in dire need of people skills. The park is dusty and sets on the access road to I-20 so you will have road noise. We may try alternate routing in future trips to avoid this area.

We spent 2 months at this campground to tend to some personal business. The park is clean, very well maintained and managed. The owners are on site daily and take an active role in the day-to-day issues of the campground. Wi-Fi is extra, if you desire. Rate reflects the monthly rate divided by 30. The park is in a country-like setting, away from road noise or heavy traffic. Will definitely return in the fall.

This park is about 500 yards from exit 501 off I-10. Road noise continuous. Some partial shaded sites but most are open. Daily cleaning of showers not evident. A dead roach was in the same bathhouse location for a period of 3 days. Way overpriced for the amenities. Will pass on this park next time.

Newer park located outside Lubbock city limits. No frills but safe place to stay. Two nice doggie parks on the premises. Great managers live on site. The bathrooms need daily cleaning and mopping. We choose this park every year when we come to Lubbock.

Convenient location off I-20. Pleasant resort atmosphere. The water/sewer/electric/CATV hookups were about 30 feet away from our outlets. Very odd locations for a back-in. The dog park was in dire need of mowing and maintenance. Staff helpful.

Great place to stop for the night! Quiet and the rate mentioned is the PA rate. The manager/owner is friendly, helpful and knowledgeable about the area. Cable TV is limited but has the major stations, news, etc. Will definitely stop here again when going through on I-30.

As others have mentioned, check in happens at a kiosk. No life forms are involved. No restrooms or showers. Washers/dryers are on site. We never saw a park representative for the entire week we camped here. No signage from I-30 or other access roadways. Good location if you need to be close to Dallas. Most residents are permanent. Dusty and gravel surface. But, Wi-Fi and CATV worked great!!

Convenient place to stop on I-20 for one night. The road noise is constant! CATV and Wi-Fi worked fine. Pads are concrete but many are broken and uneven. A work camper admitted that the park was old and they were trying to repair the concrete. Lots of long-term residents. Industrial businesses on all sides of the park. Will probably bypass this park in the future.

As per the previous reviewer, this is a great stopping point on I-40! There is also an on-site RV service/repair facility which we employed for some routine preventative maintenance on the coach. Amarillo isn't the garden spot of Texas and the high winds aren't great either. But, you can't beat the buy 2/get 3 nights price either! Join their VIP program, a freebie, and get another 20% discount including their service and meals! Will definitely stop here again when traveling west.

We've camped here several times and found that it is the most enjoyable of all campgrounds in the area. Over the years we have noticed that the routine maintenance and upkeep has not been optimal. We enjoy the trail around the park and Santa Fe, in general. While here, the CATV provider changed it's digital input signal cutting out many channels. We'll return and hope to find the place as pleasant as it's been in the past.

Singularly one of the worst parks around. We expected a half price space but were informed they didn't honor any discount clubs. As other reviewers have noted the lack of TV or cell connectivity, the clerk checking us in was more interested in eating her sandwich than answering questions. No where for the dogs to walk or do their business. Gravel, brown grass, and mountains are the major characteristics of this park. Stop in Raton overnight or Trinidad.

Our second trip here and we stayed for a month. Great staff! The park has upgraded several areas and amenities such as putt-putt golf and other kids activities. When the park is full, the voltage levels drop especially when everyone is running AC. Daily rate reflects monthly rate plus electricity. Will visit here again.

As mentioned by other reviewers, the park is packed and maneuvering is tough especially during a long weekend. Crowded spaces. Two major roads run parallel to each other, Hwy 24 and Hwy 24 business generating twice the road noise. CATV only has 13 stations. Way overpriced for what you get. Glad we didn't stay longer. Seems finding a quiet, spacious campground in the Springs is challenging.

The park is about as good as it gets on this stretch of I-80. Dusty and gravel sites, but level. Two nice dog parks. Spacious sites. Road noise is definitely audible but all the campgrounds are close to the interstate. Good CATV and accommodating front desk staff.

The park is located next to I-15, close to an airstrip as well as an active railroad. It is dated. The park is predominately park models and permanent residents. Navigating the park is tight. An occasional large tree canopy can be problematic. Sites are not level and are grass or gravel. We probably would have left and tried a local KOA if not for the late hour and beginning of the rush hour traffic.

This is a new campground, close to I-84 yet without road noise. There is an active railroad track close by, but we only heard the train once at 5 AM. Helpful front office staff. Spacious sites. Good WiFi and CATV. Would stop again if traveling on I-84.

As per the previous reviewer, this park's sites are tight! Our 30 ft. motorhome and tow didn't fit in a pull-through either, so we had to break the hitch to fit into the site and access the water and sewer. Not dog friendly at all. A small area in the rear of the park is the only doggie allocation. There are signs posted in all other grassy areas "no pets". Oregon is a pet friendly state and this was a shock to us! The only plus was the Passport America rate.

Good overnight stop. In town but not close to I-5 so no road noise. Has level sites. Great place for a night or two. Office staff very helpful and accommodating. Dog run is puny (aren't they all on the road?) so the rating reflects this observation.

This is a wonderful place to stop overnight or for a couple of days while relaxing or shopping! Level sites and long pull throughs. The rate is for Passport America and is one of the best values we've ever seen. Basic CATV and WiFi included. Clean laundry and all machines worked fine. Clean showers too! The only reason it's a 9 instead of a 10 is the puny dog run: gravel cages and not much space. Great staff and greeting on arrival!

Small, campground north of Visalia, with predominantly permanent residents. Only 30 amp service and our 32 foot motorhome with tow barely fit into one of their pull through sites. Could not connect sewer hose because of small pull through size. Located right next to Hwy 99 so expect alot of road noise. Facilities are primitive and in disrepair. Pass on this one and head north to the next major town.

We camped here for one night heading north to the Olympic Peninsula. Price is for Passport America. Regular rate is about $56 for a one night, pull through site. Narrow pull through sites. Barely enough room for the sides, and no room for the awning. Sardine-like canned feeling, but for one night on the road it's okay. The exit from I-10 is dicey and congested. But, no road noise or railroads.

We spent alot of time researching the RV parks in Yuma. Between the military air base, the active railroad through town, and I-8 running east/west, it's challenging to find any quiet place to stop for a few days. We used our Coast to Coast membership to get the noted rate. The park has alot of snowbirds and folks who live in the park year round. They are, in our view, the most friendly group of folks we've met in a long time! The office staff is very friendly. The park has a nice dog run in the back area. Were it not for our discounted rate, we'd probably travel through Yuma and not even stop. If you can travel through the area and stay elsewhere, it's probably a better bet.

We stayed here with the Coast to Coast Best Neighbor Park rate. This is an Encore park (55+) and is very restrictive with respect to where you can and cannot go. For example, areas of the park were marked with "no dogs" signage indicating that you couldn't even walk your dogs in the no dogs sections. If you walk your dog in a dog section, the dog can't pee on shrubs or trees. The dog park was undergoing reseeding and heavy watering so access was limited. Laundry facilities were excellent and reasonably priced. The park is centrally located in Casa Grande with easy travel to all local stores. We'll stay here again when traveling through the area but not for any long period of time.

Park road is an all dirt base. When it rains, expect red mud in your coach/camper. This KOA has the most expensive laundry--$3 per wash and half the machines are out of order! Limited CATV and Wi-Fi. This is one of the few locations my Verizon air card did not have reception. Office/park staff is very helpful. Would stay at Rancheros next time.

The best place to camp in the Lubbock area. New park, close to Lubbock and attractions. Limited CATV and Wi-Fi. Clean laundry and grounds. Nice dog park for the pooches. Rate is reflective of a week's stay. No discounts on the daily rate but you can get a better deal by the week or month. This is the only place we camp when we come to Lubbock!!

Another pricey KOA but it is the best stopover in Abilene if you are traveling I-20. No aircraft noise from Dyess and the park has the working CATV and Wi-Fi as well. If you need a windshield ding fixed, Jim's West Texas Windshield Repair will do a great job. His biz card is in the front office! We had a nice pull through site. Dog park was also a very nice perk and the dogs enjoyed it!

Rate reflects C2C and Golden National Parks rate. Otherwise it's $40/night. "Leisure at it's finest" and as others have commented: Mill Creek truly is an outstanding park. Stop by Parrillos Tacos, a small taco stand at the entrance to the park for the best $1 tacos you will ever eat! Also: Sisters Cafe in town has the best homestyle (chicken fried steak) in the area! Staff in the park is helpful, plentiful and eager to please. Only one problem noted and reflects the 9 instead of 10 rating: after a heavy rainfall, the park was full of fire-ant hills and mosquitos the size of quarters. Insect control was sorely lacking. We would definitely stop here again especially with the great Coast to Coast rates!

Another private park on the I-20 corridor through Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and Georgia. Convenient location off I-20. The park borders a local dog pound and railroad track. The dogs whine and howl intermittently through the day and night. A 1 AM train rolled through while we were here. Given the lack of suitable campgrounds: this one was acceptable for a single night. The staff was helpful and pleasant. Would stay here again but would request a site away from the dog shelter.

This campground was a diamond in the rough of private campgrounds in the I-20 corridor through Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and Georgia. It's located about 4 miles from I-20, has concrete pads--nicely level too--with working Wi-Fi and CATV. They honor all discount clubs like PA, Good Sam, Camp Club USA. The only downside is a nearby railroad track with trains coming close by about every 6 hours. Pencil this park in your travel book--a great place to overnight on I-20!!

Couldn't find this park in the reviews list. It's on the infamous Interstate 20 (I-20) corridor between Atlanta and Birmingham. Convenient location off I-20 but is definitely in the middle of nowhere. Antenna TV found 3 channels. Advertised Wi-Fi was nonexistent. The park is a grassy meadow. We think the owners are dog breeders but we never saw them. Cash and check only. The park is part of the PA network and offers many discounts. Would stay here again if the weather forced us to stop here.

As others have described, there is a lack of private campground facilities on the I-20 corridor through Georgia, Alabama, and Mississippi. This park is a solid overnight stop but that's about it. Cash or check only. They offer 70 channels of CATV but no Wi-Fi. You have to be contained and have your own bathroom facilities. There is an escort to the site and the park is away from I-20 so there is no road noise. Would definitely stop here again, if we had to do so.

Great location right off I-95! Great stopping place on the way south. There are tall pines surrounding the perimeter of the park. No road noise to speak of. Owners are new and live on site. They are very helpful and accommodating. Can't beat the PA rate. Wi-Fi is great. No CATV. Would definitely stay here again.

A quiet Passport America park in the middle of North Carolina. No frills but the park is conveniently located off US 301 and I-95. Make sure you read a paper map because our GPS sent us to 301S rather than 301N. They offer WiFi but no CATV; local channels via antenna have good reception. Park owners have some farm animals stabled/caged on the property: chickens, donkeys, goats, horses. Will definitely stop here again.

We happened to be traveling through Asheville over Mother's Day weekend when KOA was offering a buy one, get one night free. The office staff were cheerful and helpful. We made a reservation. This special attracted all the weekend campers. The place was packed--a human zoo! The campsites were so close you could smell the campfire smoke inside a closed coach from your neighbor's fire! The campground is located about 100 yards from an active railroad track and sits on US 70, a busy highway. Despite the good rate (half price) the stay was anything but pleasant! We suppose that the place might be good for a one night stopover when there are fewer people around.

This park is about 12 miles north of Nashville proper. It's small and maneuvering in the park can be a challenge. With the rainy weather, the grounds were saturated and a lot of standing water was around. The park sits below I-65 and the road noise was awful. Will avoid this park next time.

A nice park on the fringe of Fort Collins. Although the roadway to the park is seedy, once you pass the gravel pit, the park is a country oasis. Spacious sites and great views of the mountains. A nice path around a man made lake. Only 11 channels on their CATV. Excellent access to Fort Collins shopping and old town. We camped here 2 years ago and the park is "wearing down". Some maintenance and goose droppings clean up are needed. We will return however, to enjoy this gem of a park!

An expensive place to park for the night. Located next to an industrial park. If traveling east on I-270, this is a great place to stop and beat the St. Louis morning traffic. No CATV. Great dog run and dog walking area. Front office person did escort us to the site. Quiet park away from the main roadway.

A nice park in the middle of a country setting. The trip from I-29 is on a 2 lane narrow, winding country road. Once set up in the park, we quickly discovered that the park is adjacent to the Kansas City airport. Aircraft preparing to land soared over the campground all day long. Will definitely not return to this park again.

Good place to stop overnight near Lincoln. The campground is far enough away from I-80 that road noise isn't a major issue. Laundry facilities are in need of repair and upgrading. A great value for Passport America members. We'll stop here again for an overnight stay.

This campground is conveniently located off I-70 east of Denver. The staff is helpful and courteous. The sites are level, CATV and WiFi all work. On the north border, about 50 yards from the campground, is an active railroad track. A train rolled through at 9:45 PM and 2:30 AM. The train's vibrations did rattle the windows in our unit. Unfortunately, there isn't much to choose from to camp overnight in this area.

This park is located behind the Conoco station. The CATV has some entertainment channels but no one in the store, which is where you register, had a clue as to the channel lineup or details. It's part of the Passport America discount club and that's about all it's worth! The showers/laundry room close at 9 PM and open at 6 AM--the hours of the C-store. Is that okay, the store clerk will ask? Next time, the Wal-Mart parking lot in Goodland or Colby will work just fine!

Traveling through Kansas in an RV is a challenge to say the least! In Russell, you have 2 choices. The triple J which is about 100 yards next to I-70 or Fossil Creek located half a mile inside town. Fossil Creek is bordered by a small mobile home park so the road noise is greatly dimished. Fossil Creek has CATV with 70 channels and Wi-Fi that works! The park is, however, woefully run down and dated. Although we hooked up our 30 amp service with no problems, one of our neighbors had his 50 amp circuit breaker blown in a couple of hours after arrival. They left the park. The laundry room/showers are located in a dilapidated trailer without AC. There is some noise from the trailer park next door but nothing of note. If you have to stop in Russell, this works just fine for a night. Kansas RV parks have a ways to go...

Although the campground accepts Passport America and all other travel club cards, the base rate is $34 which makes the PA rate $17. This is way too high for a noisy, small park adjacent to I-35 and Highway 166. When we checked in the host told us that highway 166 was busy 24/7 for a 2 lane highway. Semis and trucks using jake brakes rolled through all night. Next time we'll go back to Hesston where the campground is far enough away from road noise. And, no CATV or even antenna TV reception with the digital converter box. You are out in the middle of nowhere!!

We stayed at this campground last September and it had CATV. That's gone now and many of the amenities such as newspaper boxes are gone. Upkeep of the roadways is lacking; there are lots of potholes and debris in the area. The place looks run down. Next time we'll try Lake Ray Roberts for a short stay through north Texas.

Lake Athens is easy to reach and has a pleasant, quiet country setting. The cable TV and Wi-Fi both work great. There is a public boat ramp, bait shop and restaurant on site. We camped here about 2 years ago and enjoyed it then. Unfortunately, there are large potholes throughout the park and some required maintenance is lacking. For example, two of the six washing machines were out of order and have been so for a while. That said, we'd come back again for a restful stay.

We stayed here because the Oakwood park was full. This park is in town and close to the square. Front office staff was friendly and helpful. The site was level, however, the ground sewer outlet was higher than the connect on my rig. We noticed a strong odor of diesel fuel during the whole week we stayed here. The park is bordered by a mechanics garage, a transformer storage yard for the local electric company, and a vacant property loaded with rusting metal scaffolds. Road noise was minimal. My small dog contracted a bad case of diarrhea during our stay here. The local vet thought he picked something up on his paws in the park. I think we'll avoid staying here in the future and try one of the other parks outside Fredericksburg.

Although the park is within walking distance via a private boardwalk, the park has 500 sites and is like a small city. We wanted to camp here for a month but we wound up being shuffled to different campsites every week or so because they were "full" during spring break in March. We noticed many empty premium sites all through the park but were told they were unavailable. If you have a site by "the fence" you will hear the road noise from highway 361--the main road through Port Aransas. During spring break, the place was packed with unruly adolescents and their friends. Many teens drove electric golf carts through the park at top speed. Some raided coolers from adult campsites. And, despite camp quiet hours, many of these spring breakers partied well into the night. If this reflects the "family friendly" label for this park, we'll probably go elsewhere next time. Perhaps the place has a more civilized atmosphere during the fall and winter months when many Winter Texans find refuge from the cold weather states.

A very dated park in need of refurbishing. We camped on the "west side" of the park. A lot of overgrown tree limbs and potholes in the blacktop. A full schedule of activities is available. We camped here because we couldn't get into our first choice down the road near the Bensten State Park. The upside is the great grapefruit trees scattered throughout the park--the pickins are delicious! A good park if others are full in the area.

Park is located off Interstate 37 and has a mixed camper population. Short term campers are parked close to the access road. Pads are narrow. The park is congested and not suitable for long term stays. On the morning we left the water pressure dropped and we had to resort to using our on board water.

Beautiful views of the mountains! Lots of great history, tourist venues, and great desert. The mountain location means the temps. are cooler than the rest of AZ in the winter. Many campers from northern tier states--MN, WI, SD, ND,CO, etc like the place. The campground management has some rigid rules regarding where your pets can and can't go. One posted memo stated they were going to start charging $3/night for each pet. The campground is located in the country about 30 miles from shopping centers so be prepared to drive to the nearest Wal-Mart or grocery stores. Rates are affordable and they take PA, GS, AAA etc.
