A decent overnight stop. Gravel sites with reasonable gravel access roads. Not overly long pull thrus, so dropping the toad is most likely necessary. Sites wide enough to park the toad next to the rig. Power ok, did not use water or sewer. Wifi was not working the night we were there - decent signal, but would not hand out IP address. Decent Verizon signal strength and bandwidth. We will consider looking for alternatives for an overnight in the area since this campground does have the negative of having to drop the toad.

A good job adapting to the desert environment. Mostly gravel sites with good gravel access roads - although we did see a 45’ tag having some issues, but they came down the roads the wrong way and after dark. Pull thrus long enough to avoid having to drop the toad. Trees and some grass in the campground (grass mostly on the western end). Picnic tables at each site. Fire pit on request. 50A power was having some problems - very intermittent out of balance legs (up to 15v spread) with reverse polarity. Owner was very involved, but frustrated with the intermittent nature of the problem. We spent most of the stay on 30A (which was stable). Water good (60 psi), sewer ok, but connection was a bit recessed so hooking in sewer elbow was problematic. Wifi was very good for a campground - stable with good signal strength and mostly good bandwidth (occasional slowdowns). Verizon signal strength was 5 bars. Did not test the bandwidth since the campground wifi was good enough to not need our hotspot. Flies were a bit of a problem (1st half of October) since the field of melons next to the campground was plowed under in late September. The best thing going for this campground is it’s proximity to the San Rafael Swell and the staff. We will stay here again when in the area.

A nice campground with a mix of transient and ownership sites. Asphalt access roads with level gravel sites. Access roads are comfortably wide for a single rig, but not wide enough for two rigs to pass. Most sites are slightly narrow pull thrus (about the length of picnic table between rigs). Each site in the transient area has a concrete pad with picnic table and fixed grill and a tree (mostly Crabapples). We were able to comfortably fit a 37’ class A plus our toad in the site. Some minor puddling on the access roads after rain, but there was enough gravel in the sites to avoid puddling and mud. Power ok, water ok, sewer ok (some sites have the sewer connection recessed enough to cause issues hooking up a sewer elbow). No issues with satellite access. Wifi was ok in signal strength and bandwidth (most of the time), but only for e-mail and casual browsing. We did occasionally have to resort to our hotspot to avoid frustrating page load times. Verizon signal was 3 to 4 bars with reasonable bandwidth. We will stay here again when in the area.

A nice campground set back against bluffs with lots of mature trees. Reasonable gravel access roads, mostly level gravel sites with grassy areas. Most sites had a picnic table along with a fixed grill shared between a pair of sites. There are three different areas in the campground. The back area looks to be the oldest and is completely shaded. This area has the smaller sites although we did see some 45’ class A’s squeezed into some of the sites. The area north of the entrance road has larger sites in a more open area with some shading. These sites can handle 45’ class A’s, but the toads for these rigs tended to be parked in the road going between the rows of sites. This may make it interesting to maneuver. The area south of the entrance road has the largest sites - easily long enough for a 45’ class A plus toad. Seemed to be a bit more shaded that the north area, but much less than the back area. The south area does have a couple of curves on the access road that require a slight amount of extra caution. The pullthrus were alternating so two sites shared a common set of utilities. Also the back ins alternate with "pull ins” - again sharing a common set of utilities. A wonderful 2 acre off-leash dog area is in the front of the park. As noted in some other reviews, this park does have major issues with heavy rainfall. After a spell of dry weather (so the grounds were basically completely dry), we had heavy rain all night - at least several inches. The next morning most of the campground was flooded. They did have people out with portable pumps that morning to get rid of the worst of it, but 3 days of sunshine later there were still major issues with water - especially the area north of the entry road. This area had so much water that people were walking on the picnic table benches to get into their rigs. Some sites in the north area had as much as a foot of standing water (3 days after the rain). The back area seemed mostly dried out after 3 days. The area south of the entry road was sort of in between - grassy areas like a soaked sponge and a fair bit of mud. Puddles remained on many of the access roads. This park would probably be a 9 if they invested in enough gravel to mitigate the drainage issues. There was some highway noise in the front park of the park - mainly in the early evening. Power was ok, water was 58 psi, sewer ok. Did not use the cable. Satellite access was fine in the south area and probably in the north area; problematic in the back area. Wifi strength was good with mostly decent bandwidth except in the early evening with a full park at which time the bandwidth was zilch. Verizon signal was 3 bars with adequate, but not great bandwidth. We will stay here again when in the area (just hopefully avoiding any heavy rainfall).

Very nice campground alongside the Rio Chama. Three types of sites in the campground - the pull in waterfront sites directly along the river, back in sites in the woods behind the waterfront sites, and the bulk of the sites in a mostly open gravel area (pull thrus and back ins). Wide gravel access roads with level gravel sites. The initial entrance road is concrete and might be a touch too narrow if two rigs were trying to pass (you can’t see what might be about to turn in to the campground from the base of the entrance road). We were in a waterfront site with picnic table, fire ring, full hookups, and the sound of the Rio Chama outside our front door. Hookups were at the extreme back of the site which might make satellite access problematic (back of the site is in the trees and our dish is mounted in the back). There is enough room to pull forward (at least in our 37’ coach) to clear the trees for the satellite, but it would require long utility runs. Power ok (but not hot enough to really stress it with A/C running), water pressure ok, sewer ok. The wifi had good signal strength, but generally poor to fair bandwidth ranging from 10Kbs to 160Kbs, but the installation was relatively new and probably just needs to have some kinks worked out. Verizon cell was 4 bars with usually decent bandwidth. Very friendly and responsive people running the place - firewood and mail delivered to your doorstep. We will most definitely use this campground as our base whenever we are in the area.

Not much to choose from in the Socorro area if you want hookups. Basic gravel campground with a scattering of trees. Wide access lanes, but can still be challenging in places with a larger rig. Most of the transient spots (row B & C) are 30A, water, no sewer. The only 50A and sewer that we could find for transients was in row D where a few (perhaps 4 or 5) have 50A service. While they supposedly take reservations, they appear to have a first come, first serve policy (that’s what is posted on the door if you get there before 4pm). So if you need 50A service or you have a large rig, it may be problematic. We ended up in row B and hung out both ends of the space (37’ plus toad) enough that we felt it necessary to deploy our safety triangles on both ends. Only the coach was relatively level, the toad was on a definite slope. 30A power seemed OK, but no need to run the A/C the night we were there. Did not use the water. Wifi is pretty much useless - most people could not get a signal except at the office and the far end of the campground. We got a signal in row B, but we have really good antennae. And it did us no good as the WAP wasn’t handing out IP addresses. Verizon data signal was moderate (3 bars) on LTE with decent data transfer speeds. The office staff was very friendly, but completely clueless about even such fundamentals as “Do you have 50A hookups?”. Cash or check only. We would stay here again only if we needed an overnight in the area and not if it was hot (thus needing the A/C).

Nicely shaded KOA with packed gravel access roads and sites. Pull thru sites just barely long enough for 37' motorhome with attached toad. Probably long enough for 40' if toad disconnected. The main area of the park has a single row of pull thrus with a row of back in sites on both sides of the pull thru row. The access road going between the rows may be problematic due to vehicles hanging out in the roadway especially where the access road turns around. The access roads are not wide enough for two rigs to pass. Right next to I-20, fairly close to Dyess AFB and train tracks, so the usual noise from planes, trains, and trucks. Quieted down considerably after dusk. Power OK, wifi didn't work (not handing out IP address), moderate Verizon LTE (3 bars), but rather slow speeds. Trees make satellite access problematic. Did not use other utilities. We will stay here again, but only for short stays.

A flat dirt campground apparently mainly used by local workers. Access roads are mix of asphalt, gravel, and dirt. Sites are mostly dirt and are rutted and unlevel both front to back and side to side, but not so much that it is impossible to get level. Pull thrus were long enough for 37’ motorhome with tow still connected with room to spare. No shade, no landscaping except for wild growths here and there. Utilities are spread the length of the pull thru so it may be problematic to hook up to all of the utilities depending upon the length of hoses, power cables, etc. Power ok (this with both a/c units running in 100 degree temperatures), wifi ok (reasonable speed and stability), moderate Verizon LTE signal (3 bars). Did not use the other utilities. Very friendly people running the place and very responsive to an issue with wifi connectivity when we first arrived. We will look elsewhere when next we travel along I-20 in Texas.

A very nice city run campground. Very quiet even when completely full on a holiday weekend as long as DFW is using their normal south flow. With a south flow, you do get some aircraft noise from DFW - especially heavy jets on their takeoff roll from the west side of the airport. With a north flow, it gets a lot louder with frequent departures passing nearly overhead. The campground is on the shore of Grapevine Lake, but the marina blocks any significant view of the lake. Access roads are asphalt and a bit too narrow for two rigs to pass each other. Sites are mainly back ins with some pull thrus (mainly parallel parking on the main access road). Mix of asphalt and concrete sites each with picnic table and fire ring, some shady others in the open. Most sites are slightly out of level, but we didn't see any extreme cases of slope. Power, water (80 psi), and sewer OK. WiFi is Tengo with reasonable signal and speed except on holiday weekends in the early evening. Moderate Verizon LTE (2 to 3 bars). Definitely the nicest park we've found in the metroplex. We will stay here again.

A very nice park like campground with spacious gravel sites and reasonable gravel access roads. Large common park area between the campsites and the creek. Great location for access to the Texas Hill Country with reasonable access (an hour) to both Austin and San Antonio. We would have rated it a 9 but for the heavy truck traffic on US 290/281 right next to the park. The noise does die down at night and it did not disturb our sleep even with the windows open, but it was rather noticeable during the day when sitting out or leaving the windows open in the rig. Power OK, water OK (but extremely soft), sewer OK, Wi-Fi decent signal and speed (a bit slower in the evenings, but still usable), reconnection required about once a day, strong (5 bars) Verizon LTE cell signal. Nice park for extended stays. We will stay here again when in the area.

A relatively new flat gravel campground. Some road noise when wind is from the south. Gravel sites with reasonable separation. Small patios, tables, and small trees (no shade, but they are still very young). Gravel access roads with good width. Wonderful view for watching sunsets. Good power and water, sewer connection a bit elevated. Wi-Fi decent signal strength and speed except during the evening. Moderate Verizon cell signal (3 bars). Good for overnight or longer if one had something to occupy oneself in the area. We will stay here again when in the area.

Flat gravel campground with good access roads. Long, level pull-through with decent inter-site spacing. Quiet. A few small trees here and there, but nothing in the way of shade. Good power (but no real load in the campground as too cool for a/c to be running). Wi-Fi good signal strength and decent speed. Good Verizon cell signal (4 bars). Did not use other utilities. Good for overnight or longer stays. We will stay here again when in the area.

Flat gravel campground with good access roads. Reasonable inter-site spacing. Mix of back ins and pull-throughs, some with shade, others without. Quiet given its location (probably since it is set back a bit from the main road). Decent power, water, sewer. Wi-Fi OK. Good Verizon cell signal. Good for overnight or longer stays. We will stay here again when in the area.

Flat gravel campground with wide access roads and long level pull-throughs. Moderate size pine trees between each site. Right next to I-10 so easy access, but lots of truck noise. Power OK (one leg was a tad low - might be problematic in summer), did not use other utilities, Wi-Fi has good signal strength and speed (but they do warn it depends upon how far you are from the central building), strong Verizon cell signal with decent data rate. We will stay here again when needing an overnight in the area.

A somewhat tired looking former KOA campground. Worn asphalt/gravel access roads and sites. Sites are mostly level with good spacing. A few trees here and there, but a lot of sites have no shade. Primary redeeming factor is the campground's location as a stopover point when crossing western Texas. Pull-throughs are long enough to avoid dropping the toad (at least with a 37' rig). Power OK, water OK, sewer OK, Wi-Fi has low signal strength and is very slow. Moderately strong Verizon cell signal with decent data speed. Most sites will have no problem with satellite access. We have overnighted here before when crossing Texas on I-10. We may do so in the future.

Spacious, peaceful campground set alongside the Llano River. Scattered trees within campground, but probably minimal shade opportunities. Gravel access roads and level gravel sites, some with nice patio areas sheltered by pergolas. Pull through sites are long enough to avoid dropping toad (at least with a 37' rig). Power was ok, did not use other utilities. WiFi had decent signal and speed (configure for WPA2 and TKIP). Had moderate Verizon cell signal with poor data speed, no problem with satellite access. We have overnighted here before when crossing Texas on I-10. We will do so in the future and may also do an extended stop here.

Cramped campground with asphalt access roads and mostly level concrete sites with no shade except the premium sites. The awnings from some rigs nearly touch the slideouts from the adjacent rig. The premium sites get a tree; the plus sites get no rig on one side (not necessarily the porch side). Where the one rig would have gone, the site has been turned into parking for the plus sites. So minimal advantage to the plus sites. Relatively quiet given it is a half block from the Seaworld entrance and surrounded on three sides by residential areas, but this might not be so during the summer season. If you come in the most direct route from the interstate, you have to get past the Seaworld entrance (there do appear to be some back ways to avoid the Seaworld traffic). Power ok, water ok, sewer ok, wifi completely unusable (extremely low signal and consistent failures to connect to the wap, we never managed to get connected in four days and you have to pay for it), strong Verizon cell with decent data rates, no problem with satellite access from most sites. We will look elsewhere when next in the area.

Former KOA campground. Nice spacing of sites with some shade trees. Some spaces can be challenging to enter without running over the grass since they are at near 90 degree angles to the access road. Mostly gravel access roads with gravel sites. Moderate highway and train noise (frequent trains with horns). Power ok, did not use other utilities. Campground staff did not know the wifi password, so no working wifi (next morning talking to the owner he indicated he's increasing the bandwidth). Moderate Verizon cell signal with ok data rates. Most sites would not have problems with satellite access. Good overnight stop. We will stay here again when needing an overnight in area.

Mostly quiet campground with no significant shade at the sites. Asphalt access roads with level concrete sites. Access roads somewhat narrow (questionable for two rigs to pass). Pull through sites long enough to avoid dropping toad from 37' rig but might require disconnect if rig is longer than 40'. Slight noise from highway. However, there is also a low level, very low frequency rumble on a 3 second cycle that fades into the background noise during the day but can be rather annoying at night. Power ok, water pressure good, did not use sewer, wifi better than usual for a campground, moderate Verizon cell signal, no problem with satellite access. We would have rated this an 8 except for the rumble. We might stay here again if needing an overnight in the area, but would not stay here longer.

Nice, quiet campground surrounding a small lake, but with no significant shade. Most spaces are back ins with a few pull through sites. Somewhat narrow concrete access roads (room for a car and rig to pass, but questionable for two rigs to pass) leading to mostly level concrete sites. Pull through sites are very long. Power ok, water pressure a bit low (30psi) and the water is very soft, sewer ok, wifi fairly decent for Tengo, moderate Verizon cell signal, no problem with satellite access. We will stay here again when in the area.

A campground with absolutely no ambiance, but if you need Tiffin factory service then it is really the best choice in the area. Mostly pull thrus with a few back ins in the full hookup area. Also a bunch of dry camping spots for when the 100 full hookup sites are full (which happens at the start and end of the snowbird season). No reservations taken (for the campground or service), it is first-come first-serve. When the weather is predicted to freeze, they turn off the water and leave it off but there is water in the service bays and at the wash pads. No propane fills available at the campground but there is an RV dealer across the street who does propane fills (walk over there first to see how to get your rig to the propane fill). There is also occasional propane availability down by the dog food plant - call first to make sure someone is there who can fill the tank. Power ok, water ok (when on), sewer ok (but can be a problem getting a slope), wifi comes and goes (generally adequate when available), moderate Verizon signal with ok data speeds, no problem with satellite access. We will stay here again only if we need factory service. Note campground is free for first year warranty coverage.

Campground is an open field with a mix of pull thru and back ins. Mostly quiet except for the occasional train which is loud enough to feel it and hear the wheels of the cars. Gravel access roads with level concrete sites. Pull thru long enough to avoid dropping toad (at least for 37' plus toad and probably for up to 40' plus toad). Only around 10' of grass between rigs unless you are in 1A. However, staggering of sites leaves a relatively open area at the right front of your rig unless the neighbor to your right puts their toad or tow vehicle at the front of their site. Power OK, water great (80+psi). Sewer OK, WiFi not handing out IP addresses, and moderate Verizon cell signal with good data speeds. Satellite access iffy if located in row A (we did manage to get a lock on from 11A). We will stay here again when needing an overnight in the area.

An adequate overnight stop if you need one in the area. Convenient access from I-20., but the trade-off is a significant amount of heavy truck noise all night on US 371. Gravel access roads and sites. The sites are reasonably level. and the sites in the back have shade. Except for a few backin sites around the edge, the sites are very narrow with minimal inter-site spacing. In the pull through sites up front, rigs in adjacent sites would be "cheek-to-jowl". In the interior of the park, four back in sites share a common utility hookup area thus 2 sites of each group have the utilities on the wrong side. The park is unattended and uses a self check in procedure (look in the laundry room up front for the paperwork). Power ok, did not use water or sewer, wifi ok (look in back of the paperwork for the passwords), good Verizon signal, no problem with satellite in the front of the park, but might be a problem in the back of the park (especially for rooftop antennae). We would have rated the park a 7 except for the very narrow spacing and the noise. We will probably use this campground again for an overnight when passing through.

Lightly wooded campground with mix of back ins, pull through, and permanent setups. Mostly wide gravel access roads with mix of gravel, dirt, and grass for sites. Pull through sites are not level to the point where a lot of the rigs had the front tires off the ground. Power ok, water ok, sewer ok, no wifi in most sites, weak Verizon cell signal with occasional loss of data connection, no cable, satellite ok in most sites. No on board washer / dryer use. We will probably look elsewhere when next in the area.

Very nice campground located across the street from the beach. Water is visible from coach windows when in the front row of resort, but you also get the road noise (mostly light and pretty non-existent at night) and the singing power lines (when windy). If it is really quiet you can hear the surf from the front row. Beach access is from a public access point about 100 yards down the road to the right. Concrete access roads with concrete level pull-throughs. Not a lot of inter-site spacing, but enough so you don’t feel crowded. Some of the access roads and corners are very tight in a 37’ motorhome, but it is fine with careful maneuvering and paying attention to the campground map. Power OK, water OK (40 to 60 psi), sewer OK (but some connections may be uphill), Wi-Fi OK (stable connection and decent speed), strong Verizon cell signal with good data speed, no problem with satellite access. Good mobile RV wash service. We will stay here again when in the area.

A KOA parking lot with the occasional tree. Paved, relatively wide access roads. The pull-throughs are concrete with a strip of grass, picnic table, and fire ring. Just barely long enough for a 37' motorhome plus toad - any longer and you would probably have to disconnect the toad. High curbs going onto and out of sites. We did not venture into the back-in area around the pond so it may be different over there. Power OK, did not use water or sewer, Wi-Fi OK (Tengo, stable connection, moderate speed), no problems with satellite access, strong Verizon cell signal. We will consider this campground when next in the area, but will also take another look at the alternatives.

Typical for a campground that was a KOA. A lot of long term campers, but still quiet and well kept up. Gravel access roads (could use more gravel) and gravel sites. Pull thrus long enough to avoid dropping the toad. Slight highway noise. Power ok, water pressure great (but don't use without pressure regulator - 85 psi), sewer ok, Wi-Fi ok (stable connection, but a bit slow), no problem with satellite at most sites, strong Verizon cell signal.

Very laid back campground right on the banks of the Mississippi - our front window was perhaps 100' from the river. Great view of the river. The access road coming in is a tad bumpy until you get into the RV park. A mix of paved and gravel access roads. Sites are level with either concrete pads or gravel and are long enough to avoid dropping the toad. Decent size trees between the sites. Slight rumble from the tows and the occasional train horn. Power ok, water ok, sewer ok (but if you park towards the front of the site you may need an extension), Wi-Fi weak with connectivity issues, Verizon cell moderate, off air TV ok, no problem with satellite. Bring some form of bug repellent for late pm / early evening. Avoid this campground when the Mississippi is at flood stage - late April / early May. We will stay here again.

Campground is a flat open area with relative young trees and nice plantings scattered about. Gravel access roads and gravel sites which are basically level. It is next to a relatively busy CSX mainline (heard 12-15 trains in the first day). Train noise is highly dependent on the amount of noise block between the tracks and your site. We were 7 sites from the tracks (#45). The first night there were several coaches between us and the tracks. The train noise was a bit less than having your immediate neighbor with his diesel pusher sit there and idle his engine - this in a coach with good insulation and double pane windows. Whistles were not an issue - they did blow them, but it was for relatively distant grade crossings. The second night there was no one between us and the tracks. The trains were very loud the second night. Power ok, water pressure ok, sewer ok, cable ok, no issues with satellite access, Wi-Fi decent (stable connection and decent speed), good Verizon cell signal. This would probably be an 8 if you were west of the office (tracks are east of the campground) - sites 14 thru 40 (esp 29 thru 40 which have the office as a noise block). We will stay here again when in the area.

Campground is an open field - a few small trees planted - with a mix of paved and gravel access roads, gravel sites. Pull thrus long enough to avoid dropping toad on 37' rig, but might be a problem with longer than 40'. Sites seem to slope down slightly to front - multiple rigs with front tires off the ground. Power ok, did not use water or sewer, cable mostly fuzzy channels, Wi-Fi unstable, no problem with satellite access, strong Verizon cell signal. OK for an overnight. We will stay here again when needing an overnight stop in area.

Narrow paved access roads including a rather steep climb up from the highway. Sites are gravel, but some are so loosely packed as to leave foot deep ruts. Site 35 is sold as a "pull thru", but it is pull thru only when site 36 is empty. This site is also so sloped that leveling is nearly impossible (with front tires several inches off the ground, the rig still slopes). We had them move us to another site. The other site was decently level and long with a concrete patio and fire ring. From talking to other campers, they seem to try to put you in site 35 first and then move you if you complain. Don't accept site 35 unless you have a very short rig. Power ok, water pressure ok, sewer ok, no cable, Wi-Fi ok (decent speed and it did not bounce up and down as some do), strong Verizon cell signal, satellite ok (at least in lower pull thrus - no trees). Some highway noise and the school band practices next door in the afternoons. On some weekends, they have events in a large amphitheater next to the lower pull thrus that can run past quiet time. The facilities in the Days Inn (where you check in for the campground) are available to campers as well. We will consider this campground when next in the area, but will also take another look at the alternatives.

Nice lightly wooded campground set around a small pond. Very peaceful setting. Very narrow, winding gravel access roads with mostly level gravel sites, but they lead everyone to their site. We had no problem with a 37' motorhome, but we did drop our toad at the office. Power ok (only 30A), did not use water or sewer, Wi-Fi is satellite based with limited free time each day (option to purchase additional time), good Verizon cell signal with good hotspot performance. No on board washer / dryer usage, but they do have a laundry. Do Not come in via NY 10 from I-90 - extremely tight quarters going through Canajoharie; NY 28 from I-90 has very steep grades (9%); US 20 from I-88 has a low clearance bridge - supposedly 12' 8". We will consider other options when next in the area mainly due to the quality of roads leading from the interstates.

Nice KOA set in a park like setting with scattered trees. Trees are trimmed mostly high and wide enough. Beautiful fall foliage without even leaving the campground. Packed gravel access roads and sites. Access roads narrow, but adequate as long as two rigs don't meet. Nice separation between sites. Power ok, water pressure ok (except when the rental RV took off one morning without unhooking, but staff had the problem fixed within minutes), sewer slightly elevated above ground, Wi-Fi ok (decent speed but irregular disconnects), good Verizon cell signal. We will stay here again.

Basically grass and mud fields with hookups. Mostly very narrow paved access roads, but a few that are just mud when wet. Access roads need trimming top and sides to avoid scraping with large rig. Turn onto main entrance road is pretty much a blind 90 degree corner with no room for two rigs to pass. Pull thrus are tight for a 37' - not quite enough room to park toad sideways. Minimal inter-site spacing. Full hookups are 30 amp only; 50 amp are water and electric. Electric was sometimes so poor as to not be able to run a microwave. There is a honey wagon for $10. Water pressure a bit low (35 psi), Wi-Fi so-so (decent signal, but can be very slow), decent Verizon cell signal. We will look else where when next in this area.

Nice for a KOA. Terraced, wooded sites on a hill. Very quiet. Gravel access roads and sites. Good inter-site spacing. Access roads could use gravel and grading. Power ok, water pressure a bit low, water is very soft, sewer needs a donut. Some sites might have a satellite problem. Wi-Fi ok, Verizon cell good. We will stay here again.

Somewhat run down campground. Broken asphalt access roads with multiple potholes. Sites are grass, some mud, and some gravel and seem mostly level and small. Relatively tight for large rigs - ours is 37' and we had to do a lot of backing and filling to get into a "pull thru" site. Power ok (120V with no load), water pressure excellent (60psi), sewers need a donut, wi-Fi ok (decent signal and speed). We will look elsewhere when next in this area.

A bit cramped for a KOA. Narrow, single lane gravel access roads. Sites are level gravel with adequate spacing. Sites could use more gravel to better deal with rain. Power OK (118v w/ac running). Water pressure bit low (38psi). Some sewer connections are elevated making it difficult to get a slope on sewer. Wi-Fi OK (tengo, decent speed during day, abysmal at night). Trees from Hog Farm Road into campground are not fully trimmed on sides. OK if you drive down the center line. Significant highway noise. We will look elsewhere on next visit to area.

Nice, quiet, but tired campground nestled in a sandy wood. Narrow gravel access roads. Sites are mostly pull thrus made of sand, pine needles, grass, and sometimes a bit of gravel. Access road and sites are somewhat uneven. However, we had no problem maneuvering a 37' class A and there was plenty of room in the site for our rig and toad. Power OK (but we weren't putting much load on it), water OK, sewer connections un-threaded and, in our case, slightly uphill due to combination of rig sitting low and sewer pipe sticking up out of ground. WiFi signal strength was good, but speed varied from slow to abysmal. Decent Verizon cell signal with good hotspot speeds. We will stay here again primarily due to campground location.

Very nice, heavily wooded, hillside campground. Very peaceful even over Labor day weekend. Gravel access roads with somewhat level sites. No problems maneuvering within campground (37' plus toad), but we dropped our toad at the entrance. Entry road (Craigs Meadow) not trimmed side or top for large rigs - driving down the middle of the road necessary to avoid side scrapes and to minimize top scrapes. Power a bit low - 115v under load; water pressure very low (20 psi); sewer connections not threaded and some are slightly uphill; WiFi OK, but can be slow and is not available the morning of your departure; cable OK (sat not useable). Long list of restrictions on electric usage including no electric hot water, no washer / dryer usage. Washer / dryer restriction is due to being on well water. They are willing to waive this restriction outside of peak season (i.e. when they are not mostly full) - ask at office. We will stay here again when in the area.

Nice mobile home park with transient RV sites. Not much ambiance, but a decent place to stop when visiting Philadelphia. Friendly residents. Sites level and paved, most with easy access. Mix of back in, pull thrus, and what appeared to be "parallel parking" sites. Our site was a back in with the only nit being we couldn't fully extend awning due to power pole. Power, water OK; sewer needs a donut; WiFi decent but they don't guarantee coverage to all sites. We were two sites from the antenna w/67% signal strength. We will stay here again when in the area.

Very nice state park near shore (across highway from beach). Very busy during summer season. Pull throughs with asphalt access roads; asphalt sites with sandy grass porch areas. Picnic tables, but no fire rings or grills. No shade. Sites fairly close together (around 10' between rigs) with max rig size probably 40'. We're 37' and had about 18" to spare front and back. Power good, water pressure good, non-threaded sewer. No WiFi, good cell signal (Verizon) with decent data transfer speeds. We will stay here again.

Quiet, partially wooded campground with mix of backins and pull thrus. Pull thrus are in an open field (no shade) at base of campground. Gravel access roads and gravel sites; sites are mostly level but you may need to choose location within site carefully to get level; ok spacing between sites (about 12-15 ft). No problems maneuvering within the park. Power great (120V with A/C running); water pressure good (45 psi); ok sewer hookups; wifi pretty decent speed for a campground; cell service very weak. We will stay here again. If coming in from PA 66 / I-76 / I-77, watch out for the trees on Racetrack road - they aren't trimmed back completely. Also, turn into campground just BEFORE the sign even though it looks like it's in the middle of the campground driveway.

Very nice campground among the trees. Gravel access roads with level gravel sites. Some pull throughs long enough to avoid dropping the toad, but most sites are back-ins. Some sites rather close together. Our awning came within a foot of the rig next door when extended. No problems maneuvering as the trees are all older and trimmed high. Water pressure good, power good, WiFi slow. Some highway noise from the interstate and frequent train horns. We will stay here again when in area.

Decent overnight stop with level gravel sites long enough to avoid unhooking toad for most rigs - we have a 37 foot with tow and had plenty of extra room. If you have trouble sleeping through train and truck traffic, beware as it is bordered on one side by a busy highway and on the opposite side by a busy railroad line. Power and Wi-FI OK. Did not use any other utilities. We will overnight here when in the area.

Gated park like campground with trees and a lake for fishing (catch & release) and swimming. Very quiet. Saturday night bingo, Sunday morning church services, no liquor in campground. Sites mostly grass with a minimal scattering of gravel, somewhat level, and some closely spaced. Most are back-ins or tent sites with a half-dozen pull thrus. Soggy after rain. Grills, fire rings, and picnic tables. Gravel access roads. A lot of seasonal campers. Power low (117V with no load). Water pressure low (30 psi). Wi-Fi glacially slow. We will look elsewhere on next visit to area.

Very nice county park set along side a lake. Lots of walking and biking trails. Paved access roads; some sites paved; mix of back-ins & pull thrus. Good spacing between sites. Back-in sites 14F thru 25F have patio in shade in pm. All other sites on F (back-in) row & R (pull thru) row have patio in sun in pm. Power OK, water pressure intermittent, WiFi OK (Tengo), non threaded sewer connections. Park fee charged in addition to campground fees for access to campground ($3 daily, $10 annual). We will stay here again when in area. Warning: turn into park at Winton & Lakeview. Following GPS may route you through residential neighborhoods with sub 12' tree clearances.

Large wooded state park with campground adjacent to the Ohio river. Very quiet. All back-ins of varying length; some with full hookups. Paved access roads and sites. Sites vary from mostly level to a noticeable slope. Good spacing between sites. Some sites full hookup. All appear to have picnic tables and grills and some with fire rings. Power good. Water pressure good. No Wi-Fi. We will stay here again when in area. Warning: If coming from the south, GPS may attempt to route via Charlestown Landing Road. Do NOT turn there - dead end road with no turn around! Entrance is approximately 1.5 miles further north directly off Indiana highway 62.

Park like campground with lots of trees. Very peaceful. Gravel access roads and reasonably level gravel sites, but best to disconnect toad at entrance to campground as roads are rather winding and the tree limbs can be an issue. Good spacing between sites. Slight highway noise. Power a bit on the low side - 111v w/ac running; water pressure OK. Sewer connections not threaded so donut or sewer weights necessary. WiFi OK. If coming from I-44 (or going back to I-44), take Missouri 5, not Missouri 7. We will stay here again when in area.

Nice campground set in quasi-wooded area. Level gravel sites somewhat on the narrow side. They are long enough to keep toad attached barely (37 ft plus toad). Lots of trees but they don't interfere with maneuvering. Some highway noise. Easy access from highway. Power OK - 117v w/ac running. Water pressure low at 35psi. We will stay here again when in area.

Very nice campground set among rolling hills with plenty of spacing between sites, grass and shade without the trees interfering with maneuvering. Paved sites with reasonable paved access roads. Some sites could be a leveling challenge, but the campground appears to match rig to site. Family friendly with pool, mini-golf, pool tables, library exchange, etc. Convenient access to I-44 but no road noise (at least in the part of the campground furthest from the highway). Power OK. WiFi OK, but repeated disconnects. Did not use other utilities. Good for extended stays. We will be back next time we're in Oklahoma City.

Level concrete sites with relatively wide paved access roads. Easy access from highway, but far enough away to avoid most traffic noise. Good drainage during heavy rains. No shade. Power, water, and Wi-Fi OK. Cable pretty much unusable, but close enough to pick up decent HD signals over the air. This would have been an 8 except for the "eau de barnyard" that was present whenever the wind blew from the south which was pretty much all the time we were there. We'll look for another place next time we're in Amarillo.

Nice, quiet park. Close to town, but far enough away from highway to avoid highway noise. Long, level gravel pull thrus (and a few back ins). Scattered trees, but no real shade. Patio sites have concrete patio which really cuts down on tracking grit and small rocks into the coach. We stayed in a non-patio site the last time we were here and we had to constantly sweep out the coach. Utilities fine - Wi-Fi rather slow in the evenings.

Quiet. Campground is set back from the highway so road noise from all the trucks is lessened. Level, gravel pull throughs (in non ownership area). Concrete patios with grills. Landscaping can make pull out iffy for longer coach on some sites. Power / water was OK; sewer is recessed in a concrete block such that rhinoflex can not make a gas tight seal; a donut (or equivalent) is needed to raise coupling enough to make the connection. Wi-fi is stable but somewhat slow. Nice not having to drive through town getting to/from parks.

A mix of pull throughs, pull ins, and back ins. Each of the pull ins shares a common driveway with a back in. The entire campground is on a slight incline, and this is reflected in the individual sites. Sites are sand and gravel with ruts; mostly level, but some sites have enough drop off to make leveling problematic for a longer rig. Patio areas are in some cases sloping and composed of sand with a touch of gravel mixed in. At some of the sites, the sewer connection for the adjacent site is in the middle of the patio area (instead of in-line with the utilities for the adjacent site). Access roads are narrow. Power was slightly low - 116v w/no load; 114v with AC running. Water pressure was low at 30psi. Wi-fi was very slow and unreliable. Cell service is OK. The only real redeeming factor is that it is the only choice for full hookups in Monument Valley.

Excellent resort - peaceful, well landscaped, very friendly staff and residents, quick access to the strip. This is a relatively large, gated ownership resort with approximately 75% of the sites sold (they did not push on buying a lot). All sites are concrete backins with privacy barriers (hedges mostly) between each site. Plenty of room for 37' coach with toad parked in front of the coach. Ownership sites in the rental pool have upgraded amenities (at an upgraded price). Five pool / hot tub / shower / laundry areas distributed across the resort. Showers were very clean. Pool and hot tub were clean, but suffered occasionally from wind blown palm tree leaves. Utilities were good with strong and relatively fast wifi (Tengo). Note that only Class A motorhomes are allowed.

Campground is an open sand flat with minimal vegetation between sites. Lots of grit in the air when windy. The site was not level front to back. Electric OK, water pressure was low (22 psi), no sewer, no cell service. Very good wifi - fast and stable - but not included in the camping fees ($14.95/week extra). Biggest positive to this campground is that it provides convenient access to the north side of Joshua Tree National Park.

Typical KOA. Nice overnight. Level, gravel pull throughs and sufficiently long enough to keep the toad attached to a 37' motorhome. However, if you do so, then the sewer and water will be out of reach unless you have long hoses. Utilities were okay. Decent wifi.

Basic, rustic campground in beautiful setting with trails starting in the campground. Sites are mostly widely spaced, concrete backins with fire rings, grills, and shaded picnic tables. It can be very gritty when the wind picks up. No utilities (there is potable water and a dump at the campground, but we did not use either). No cell phone service. The closest signal was on the entry road at intersection of Temple Mountain Road and Goblin Valley Road; there is a parking area at the intersection. No wifi and no satellite TV, as the mesa to the immediate southwest of the campground blocks the sky.

Typical KOA. Good overnight stop; marginal for longer stays. Somewhat short, loose gravel pullthrus with no clear delineation between site and roadway so campers tended to hang out into roads a bit making maneuvering interesting at times. Utilities fine; WiFi signal strong, but very annoying with constant log-outs. Fair amount of road noise from I-15. Turn right leaving campground for I-15 South to avoid u-turn.

Rustic campground set on sandy ground with plenty of privacy trees; trees formed almost a complete view block on 3 sides of our site. Very quiet and peaceful with plenty of room to sit out, 8 to 10 ft wide on patio side of rig. All sites are back-in, but staff directs you into your spot and does a good job of it. We pretty much maxed out the site with a 37 foot class A; ladder in back just clear of trees and nose of coach protruding slightly into access road. Unhook any toad before entering campground. Electric OK, enough to run both A/C units. Water pressure low at 25 psi. Sewer run is slightly uphill. WiFi is very limited HughesNet. Basically e-mail and light web browsing. Limited to 6 hours a day and very slow. Clock runs as long as you have a wireless connection to the WAP, so make sure to turn off your wireless radio when not using it. No cell service except within 10 feet of the office.

Very nicely landscaped KOA, but landscaping does interfere with maneuvering a large rig. Our site had a lamp post on the front left within 18" of the pad and a tree on the right front within 2' of the pad. The tree overhung the access road and was not trimmed sufficiently high to clear a rig trying to exit the site. Access roads between the rows are very narrow, sites are concrete slabs with concrete patios. Sliders overhung the patio. Our site was inundated with bird droppings throughout our stay. The campground was overrun with kids, however, it was the middle of spring break. Lots of things for the kids to ride around the campground. Slight road noise from the 805. It is 5 to 10 minutes from the trolley then 30 minutes to downtown on the trolley. Utilities were fine. Wi-Fi signal strong with decent speed, but with frequent requirements to re-connect. Typical Tengo Internet.

Note this is NOT the NPS campground. No ambiance in the campground itself although the main resort area is nice. Tight maneuvering (we were in a 37' motorhome). Enter through the north side driveway and drop any toad before going to campsite (you can hookup the toad in the bus area when leaving). Campground is basically a flat sandy stretch back in the employee area with narrow strips of asphalt for the rig. Very exposed to sandstorms out of the south (campsites back up to the south facing fence with no wind break) - a sandstorm greeted us at check in. Good drainage (not normally an issue here, but we did get 0.57" of rain one day). Power levels were low - trying to run two high current items at the same time did not work. Sewer runs slightly uphill! WiFi was decent and while it is supposedly not included in the campsite fee, it MAY actually be included - try connecting using site number without the "S". So for site TS68, use room number T68. Lots of traffic (golf carts) through campsite area. However, the campground can't be beat, if you want other than dry camping, for touring the south side of the park.

This was a typical KOA campground. Reasonable pull through sites that didn't require dropping the toad. However, drop your toad at the office as the entrance road from the office to the sites is very narrow and twists back and forth. Level pull through sites with decent WiFi and utilities.

Only an overnight stop for us, but a very nice campground. Well worth staying at for multiple days if in the Needles area. Level pull throughs, but a tad bit narrow. Long enough to avoid dropping the toad (with a 37' motorhome). Oleander privacy barriers between the sites. WiFi and utilities were fine. Concrete patio, but our passenger side slider overlapped part of the patio in order to have enough room for the driver side slider. Campground hosts met us as we drove up, escorted us to the site, helped us position the rig, and then took care of the paperwork after we were settled in the site. No having to stop at the office to checkin. Campground was full due to a lot of snowbirds, either still in residence or passing through.

We really like this campground for staying in the Phoenix area. This was our third visit in the last year or so. Campground is located on the far west side of the metroplex, but reasonably close to shopping. Several of the spring training fields are within a 30 minute drive. The rest, however, are quite a hike to the far east side of the metroplex. Reasonably wide, level pull throughs, but not quite long enough for the toad (had to park it sideways in the space). This is with a 37' motorhome. Landscaped with trees (including lots of harvest yourself citrus), but no privacy barriers between the spaces. Can be somewhat tight on the maneuvering when they are busy. This was during spring training and they were full. We've been here during the off-season and it feels much more open. Note spring training reservations start Jan 2. WiFi was reasonable, but you do have to keep re-connecting. It's Tengo Internet. Utilities were fine.

Good level pull through sites, long enough to avoid dropping the toad. WiFi was fine. No problems with the utilities. Very friendly staff. We only stopped for the night, but what we saw was very nice. We will definitely use this campground for a longer stay when in the Tucson area. Lazy Days Sales and Service departments adjacent to the campground (as is a Camping World).

Nice campground with long pull through sites and decent privacy between sites. Good WiFi. No issues with water, electric, or sewer. Not really an extended stay kind of place, unless you have things to do in the Las Cruces area.
