I rarely give a park a 10. This one certainly deserves it. The sites are large and most are expertly manicured with several ponds throughout. Over 2,000 palm trees. Clean, staff helpful, and friendly. This sits on Mustang Island about 7 miles from downtown Port Aransas. The property is surrounded by dunes and beach. There is a boardwalk from the park to the beach which was pristine. Excellent surf fishing If you need to be real close or in the town this is not the spot for you. If however you enjoy nature, quiet and a beautiful setting and don't mind driving a few miles to get to store then you will enjoy Gulf Waters. Plenty of good restaurants in town. You can take the 5 minute ferry over to Aransas Pass and Rockport. Its free and runs constantly.

This park is in the middle of an industrial area. No big surprise here. The entire Midland/Odessa Oil Patch is an industrial area. People don't come here for the ambiance. This park is largely populated by oil field workers. As noted in previous posts, you can't drink the water but the staff gives you a case of drinking water when you check in. The water in the entire area is messed up, so it's not just them. The air smells like oil. It is not a garden spot. Having said that though we would stay here again if we needed a quick overnight stay on the road. Staff was pleasant and facilities were clean. Easy in and out though the owners allows cabin residents to park along the entrance and if you're in a big rig it can be a bit of a hassle getting around them.

This is a great RV park. Living in Texas we are always looking for places to go that are within a day's drive and have a lake. This one ranks high on our list. The grounds are well maintained, the lots are a good size for a big rig, and there are plenty of trees. There are two sides to the park: One for residents and another that is largely for transients with a nice view of Lake Nanworthy. At sunset we had a herd of deer walk through the camp to get corn that a resident sets out for them. Several large bucks in the herd. Wild turkeys come walking on by. The whole place is surrounded by a state park. Fishing was fair to good. The only thing was the roads were dirt and it was dusty or we would have rated it a 10. Definitely come back here in the fall.

This is the second time we have stayed here on our way between CA and TX. It's right off the highway and easy to find. Traffic noise isn't too bad. The place is immaculate with large level sites and nice facilities. Good fences and hedges between sites for privacy. Shopping and restaurants nearby. I would give it an 8 if it had a pool. Staff was courteous and helpful. Price is reasonable.

This park is massive and about 1300 sites and park models. Excellent security. Friendly staff. It's hard to picture what it must be like in winter. There were 3 RVs in the place with us in July. Facilities are unmatched with a bar, restaurant, store, hairdresser, etc. Pretty self contained. Very well run property. We would stay here again. Note: While it is technically in Tucson it is the far east end and about 12 miles from downtown. There is plenty of shopping including Costco nearby, but if you're looking for that old downtown Tucson experience you are a fair drive away.

This is a flat, treeless, desolate (in summer), expanse of desert with park models and RVs intermixed. There were a couple of RVrs passing through and a couple of people that just stay all year round. The staff was great, very friendly and helpful. Not a bad overnight stay really for the money. In winter, I'll bet it is very busy. There are many parks to choose from in the area and some of them have trees. That would be my first choice next time around. Word to the wise. Yuma is a ghost town in summer. The water pressure is VERY high. Make sure your pressure regulator is BEFORE the hose. They forgot to tell us and we blew out two hoses in seconds.

This is not what I would call a resort by any stretch of the imagination. There are two sides to this park. The gated side which is very clean and nice and the ungated side which is not, but that is where the pool and amenities are. If you stay on the good side you have to walk out the gate and down the frontage road 100 yards to get to the office and pool. You are right on Highway 8 so traffic noise is high. The non gated side (where our first site was supposed to be) is run down and has a lot of perm residents with some units in ill repair. The gated side is mostly transient big rigs and longer term folks who take very good care of their sites. It is also secure which is important because this is not the greatest of neighborhoods. Roads are tight coming in through an older neighborhood. Alavarado is a very narrow frontage road and the entrances are narrow and unmarked as well. This is a very expensive park for what you get. Sites are small and tight for the most part but there are a few that have grassy areas. Good utilities. No cable on the gated side. The SD Trolley (rail) is nearly in the complex so if you want to visit parts of San Diego via trolley you can go almost anywhere and even to Tijuana for a few dollars.San Diego has generally poor and overpriced RV options. We lived here for 10 years so you pretty much take what you can get. This is not a bad stay at all if you are on the gated side and don't care about the pool. Otherwise I would pass. At $90 per night it matches the most expensive rate we have had on this 6,000 mile trip.

We arrived here for an overnite the day before the Mazda Races. The park is right on the track. Great views of area. 16% uphill grade coming in so beware. GPS will take you 1/4 mile south so keep going. Comes up fast and little signage. So for the bad news. County won't take reservations except for the race attendees so if you pick an open spot during a race it may not be actually open. I would stay here again for an overnighter or for the races.

Nice clean park tucked in the pines. Stream running through the property, swimming lake for kids. Level dirt sites. good size and some room between sites. Good facilities and staff was helpful. Pretty tight getting back into the trees with big rig but very doable. Great view of the mountains along the back row. The entrance to Glacier National Park is about 30 miles away and a must see. Breathtaking. Five miles into downtown Kalispell, which frankly isn't much to see. Tons of shopping nearby. The only negative here was tree sap. If you're in the pines for a few days you will see sprinkles of it on everything. Comes off easily, but just so you know. We liked it here. Great value. Would come back.

Very nice KOA next door to the hot springs. Nice pool area. Big, level sites. Place is under construction into a resort so space is limited. Staff was very nice and helpful. Clued us in on local restaurants and fishing opportunities. As KOA's go this is up there with the best. We would stay again for sure.

We stayed here over the July 4th weekend for 5 days. Very nice motorcoach resort, right next to the KOA which they also own. Both very nice. Excellent facilities, great store, beautiful view of Flathead lake. Phenomenal, friendly helpful staff. The owner and his wife are always there and very friendly. We rented a privately owned site with outdoor fireplace and grill area. Gorgeous. Campground is right on the Polson Airport and it was fun watching the occasional small plane or jet take off and land. Ultra clean park and well laid out on a bluff above the lake, but back a mile or so. We loved it here. Made great new friends. Highly recommend.

This is a pretty nice park. Good beach on the Spokane River. Nice forest trails to walk the dog and let them take a swim on their own dog beach. High traffic park. Sixty units in and out all day. Sites are ok, albeit a bit small. A couple miles from downtown CDA, which is awesome, clean and fun. We would stay here again. Friendly though frenzied staff. The Cedars Floating Restaurant next door is one of the nicest restaurants we have eaten in on this trip, though a bit pricey. Front desk will give you a card for a free drink. Good laundry room. Water toys for rent. Nice dock area. You are right where the river turns into Lake CDA. Didn't have much luck fishing, though we are told it is a trophy trout lake. We would stay here again.

This is a nice park with large trees in a great little harbor town. A bit off the 5, but worth the trip over. Site was huge, but dirt and not real level. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Easy entry and exit. Quiet and peaceful. No traffic noise. Gig Harbor is a quaint old fishing community. Major shopping out the gate and to the right about three miles or up on the 16. Pretty area. All in all, a great three day stay. We would come back for sure.

If you are camping here with kids you are probably ok. Plenty for them to do, but this place is kinda ratty and not well kept. You are a good 35 miles to the Redwoods and Eureka is a typical CA seaside town. Old, beat up and not real pretty. We rarely stay at KOA's. We are retired and just looking for a nice, clean, safe place with peace and quiet. This is not it. Would not stay here again and cannot recommend it.

We don't usually stay in parks. Mostly "resorts" but this is a good one. Right on the river. Excellent fly fishing. Big sites with lots of room between them. It was an overnighter and we regretted not being able to stay longer. Great place to stay if you're heading on the 5 in between Eureka and Seattle. We loved it here. You will too. Big trees, very clean and away from the daily park stuff. Excellent price for what you get.

This is a small park of 28 sites primarily for expo exhibitors. The Expo center is on the property. It is a city owned facility. That said it is very nice and clean with large concrete pads and well manicured lawns between sites. Staff was friendly though one guy was a bit of a stormtrooper with the rules. Very safe and secure. Probably the nicest Expo RV area in the US. I have seen a few. This is tops. We had come in to go to the wineries and see friends for a few days. Just keep in mind that their can be traffic for events coming in and out of the area. If you like wine just turn left out of the park and follow signs for Silverado Trail (you're on it, but it takes a few turns). Bring lots of money. Best wineries in the US are just 10 minutes away and they are a tad pricey. We loved this park. Can't say enough good things about it though the entrance is VERY tight and poorly marked. GPS will take you to the expo and not the RV park which is on the side of it. The RV park is one block before 3rd street on 121 (Silverado Trail) on your left. If coming from the north then pass through 3rd street and look to your right. Look for chain link fence and a small sign in either case. Big rig friendly if you are not afraid of a tight turn getting into the place.

This campground is 15 miles north of Santa Barbara near Goleta. This is our 4th time here though the first time in summer. It is right on 101, so the traffic noise is pretty loud if you happen to have a lower site, which we did. That said it is a very well maintained campground with friendly staff. In the summer it is packed. Nice pool and hot tub area, but they close it at 10:00 PM and are pretty aggressive about it. Totally unnecessary. It should be open until 11pm, so adults have some time in the pool without kids. What's the harm? Short walk to beach. They also own El Capitan campgrounds next door so you can walk down the trails to that location which has a really good restaurant and store. Ocean Mesa is expensive, but that's CA. Highest rates in US. We would definitely come back. I am giving them an 8 for the pool hours only. Otherwise a 9.

The number 1 park in Colorado. Excellent campground. Wide open spaces between units. Some trees. Site was level and spotless. We watched a crew come by within minutes of someone leaving to wash everything down, rake and get ready for the next guest. The lake is large and good bass and walleye fishing. No traffic or road noises. About 4 miles to good shopping. This was a great value. Price does not reflect the $9 per day out of state park access fee - so be forewarned. Still a good value. If you are coming up 285 to get here. DON"T. Take the Interstates if you can. It will be more miles, but you will get here sooner. Hwy 285 is a series of high mountain passes, 2 lanes, slow movers like us. Serious elevation changes. Very pretty, but it took us six hours to go 230 miles. Three hours to go 100.

Wow! This is truly heaven on earth. WE love this resort. We stayed on the Resort side and not the park side, but both were phenomenal. On the resort side its concrete pads, grills, cabanas, etc - as the sites are privately owned. Ours was a three level site that overlooked the pond and the Rio Grande. The park side has huge gravel lots that are level and clean. The views are breathtaking no matter where you are. Solid Internet on the park side. Spotty on the resort side as the owners have to get their own. Laundry was the best I have seen. The lodge is like out of a movie. Creede is off the beaten path, but easy access. Cool town. We liked this place so much we changed our travel plans so can some back for a month in July. Staff is among the best. Can't say enough good things about this place. It's pricey, but you get what you pay for.

This is a nice park. Level concrete pads. Good utilities, clean and well maintained. Office staff was great. We stayed here to visit Palo Duro Canyon on our way to Montana. Not too many options. Right off highway. Noise was ok. I'd give the place a 8 or 9 if not for two things. 1. The smell in the local area. Stockyards and landfill to the west. Wind blows to the east. They can't help it and the locals don't mind it but we did. Now that we have seen the second largest canyon in US we probably would go another route to get back to Austin on our way home. BUT if you're going to the Canyon it is a good option. 30 miles away. Might be something closer but we didn't see it. #2 reason for not coming back, Internet was AWFUL.

Nice park off the busiest road in Santa Fe (Cerrillos). Traffic noise didn't bother us. Place is tucked away behind some stores. Shopping Mecca within walking distance. 5.2 miles to Old Town. On bus route. Staff was nice and helpful. Hint: when your GPS tells you that you have arrived. You have! Pull into the first lot and look behind the Penske truck bldg. You'll see it. Otherwise you will never find it. The yellow rv park sign blends in with the Penske trucks. We would stay here again. Internet was AWESOME. No cable. Old Town Santa Fe is a jewelry and art shoppers paradise.

Lakeside is a small family owned place on Possum Kingdom Lake. There are 20 nicely manicured, level sites all in a row down one length of the property. PK Lake is down pretty low (10 ft or more) due to the drought. Still a lot of fun but you have to feel for the people with immovable docks Lakeside. Owners were very nice. Place was clean utilities all worked. NO INTERNET. Pet peeve of mine since I work on the road. They have a room where you can go and check online but that's it. Had to use my hotspot. Owners have the place up for sale due to health issues. Maybe the next guys will invest in Internet. Very expensive for what you get.

Read the earlier reviews, but we did not have a bad experience here. We tend to steer clear of KOA's because they are more campgroundish. We prefer RV resorts. This place was nice. Convenient to shopping and highway but no highway noise. Nice mature trees. Awesome Hot Tub. Nice pool area though it was too cold to use it. Staff was very friendly and helpful. About the only negative was it really needs to be re-paved. The asphalt was pretty rough. Pads were concrete and most were good but ours was a little rough. Pave this place and they have a #9 rated KOA. We would definitely stay here again.

Tropical Palms is one of the nicest parks we have stayed at. Its big but doesn't feel that way. Lots of trees and the pads are level and concrete. The pool is 85 degrees year round and large. They have a kiddy pool, also. Cafe on site with good food and reasonable prices. They have putt-putt golf, horseshoe tournaments, and other activities. About 7 miles to Magic Kingdom. We really liked this place and would stay here again on our way through Florida. About the only negative I can say is the internet is awful. Slow and constantly going down.

This gated community is the Ritz of RV Parks. Newer Class As only allowed. Expertly manicured and beautiful facilities. Two pools, two giant hot tubs. Tennis. Our paved pad was level 85 X 33. The total lot was 4000 sq feet on a very nice cul-de-sac. Many of the sites have tiki huts and we did see a couple being built but construction was not an issue at all. Some are homes unto themselves. All sites are owned by private parties and sublet. Really can't say enough good things about this place. It is mostly French Canadian snowbirds. Staff is bi-lingual (French first) but that was not an issue at all. Very helpful. We would stay here again and probably lease or buy a lot. Very reasonable considering what you get. Tons of shopping nearby.

Boyds is a nice campground. It is tight. Very tight like everything else in Key West. It is located on Stock Island about 5 miles from downtown. Pretty bad neighborhood but security was excellent. Staff is UNBELIEVABLE and is the main reason we would come back. There are a lot of campers who have been coming here for decades. That's a good sign. We were along the road and frankly you should avoid those spots if possible. Very Noisy. Facilities are in great shape. Restrooms are clean. Showers are excellent. About the only really negative thing I can say about Boyds is they have Tengo Internet. Lousy, lousy Internet service. It is metered by Tengo though no one tells you. As the day goes on (after 7 AM)you'll get bumped off or service will go to a crawl once you have hit your limit for the day or park usage hits its peak. Having owned a campground and dealt with Tengo before I speak from experience. We had to use our hotspot which after the week or so got real expensive. Our business is mobile and if your is too I would plan a different Internet experience but wouldn't let that stop you from coming to Boyds. We plan on coming back next year. The place grows on you and the friendships we have made are priceless. By the way. Key West is in the US but might as well be in Europe. If English is a second language for you no worries. You're French, Russian, German or Spanish will get you by just fine.

Small park. Real nice setting but very tight getting in if you are in a big rig. Recommend removing toad at the office. Train wasn't really all that bad. Disc golf course on site. Nice small lake but you can't fish or boat on it. No cable or internet. You can get Internet if you go to the bathroom and the moon and stars are lined up correctly. Trees blocked satellite. Very aggressive security guard at night. We went out to dinner and he grilled us to get back into the park. The next night our adult son (who was driving the night before) went out with friends and got a hard time getting back into the park. Guard made us drive up to get him then showed up at our site with flashing lights to confirm he really was staying with us. Very unnecessary show of force. So if you plan on staying here keep that in mind. We probably would not come back here because of it. Understand the need for security but this was over the top. Our son is 32, clean cut and sober. Easy going. Not your average vagrant.

As RV parks go this one is a real winner. Beautiful location and easy to get to though the entrance is a tad tight for big rigs. Staff will give you a golf cart at check in to go out and pick your site. We chose one on the water which is $20 more but well worth it. Spacious level sites. Each is individually owned. Some have docks and decks. Ours had a deck with chiminea and picnic table. Close to shopping and golf courses. Staff was awesome to work with. Five star (casual dress) restaurant on site with great sunset view. Highly recommend. One of the nicest places we have stayed and a great value even for the price.

Very nice park in beautiful Destin, FL (Miramar Beach). Long and narrow. Upper park is traditional with trees. Lower park is sand and one of the prettiest beaches I have seen. Facilities are top notch. Be ready for a lot of sand if you stay in the lower park. You are quite literally on the beach. Will stay here again. Tons of shopping and restaurants nearby. Nice friendly staff.

I was scared. We entered through an industrial area then shipyards. What a pleasant surprise once we hit the gates for this RV Park. Immaculate, nice staff, beautiful waterfront site. Restaurant and bar on site. Pool is awesome and the Jacuzzi is huge. Can't say enough good things about this place. It was a $20 cab ride to the French Quarter where we hit restaurants and the casino. I'd stop here on the way back but have to stay in Baton Rouge for a meeting instead. This was a great stay! Don't let the drive in steer you away from this park. It's New Orleans. Enough said. Safe and secure here though.

I haven't found the prefect campground yet, but this would be close. Very nice property right off the highway. Excellent staff. Clean, organized, and good sized and level sites. Easy to maneuver a big rig. Private showers and restrooms. Continental breakfast with homemade waffles. Nice touch. We will be staying here when we head home in February from Florida. Highly recommend Gulf Coast RV Park!

This is a great campground. We live locally and just wanted to get away for a mini weekend vacation. The resort is large, well maintained with excellent facilities. Great Pavilion, two pools, and putting green. The cottages are very nice also. We stayed in B18 which is a large corner pull through. This resort is not on Lake Travis and the pond. The lake is very low. Section A is the residential area. Wouldn't recommend it. The far south section is along the storage area. I would stay in the middle. We will definitely go back.

This is a huge park with plenty of open spaces. We had a site along the river. Nice with a few trees. Very large sites and level. The only downside is you have to drive through an industrial area to get to it but then it is very rural. GPS may try to take you right into an energy storage facility on the last turn. Look up and to your left at that intersection and you will see the RV park sign. Watching the barges go up and down the river in a park like setting was really pleasant. Staff was friendly. This campground is not in Memphis TN but in West Memphis AR right across the river. We drove down to Beale St in Memphis in about 10-12 minutes so it is close. We would stay here again.

Grandma's is a clean overnight stop. The sites are spartan but level. Utilities worked fine but no cable. Staff was friendly and helpful. A bit nutty about dogs wetting on their shrubs. Signs will tell you it is an evict-able offense with no refund. They mean it. I wouldn't call the place dog friendly though there is a small dog walk. Right off highway. Good country store and deli across the street. Some traffic noise but tolerable. We would stay here again but only for an overnight.

We have stayed here twice. Second time was a charm. Very clean facility and very dog friendly. Nice pool. Checkers and checkerboard on every common area picnic table. Great dog walk with nice brook. No skeeters or bugs to speak of. Good camp store. Staff was VERY nice and helpful. The place is pretty tight. Last turn at camp exit by office was tough. Staff would do well to move the dumpster somewhere else and make sure everyone knows about the alternative exit which is plenty big enough for a 40+ foot motorhome. Sites are level and good size. First time in we did battle with the dumpster (we won) and almost didn't come back. Glad we did. Definitely our Nashville area pit stop from here on out.

This is a nice country RV park half of which is tucked in the woods and the other half surrounded by cornfield with a few trees. The transient part is out front in the field. There are 14 pull through sites a couple of which are 50 amp. Narrow but long and level. During our stay there were only 4 other campers so it was quiet and peaceful. The owner is nice. Facilities are somewhat rustic but clean. Small pool. They do not accept credit cards. Cash and check only but the price was right. This is about 4 miles off a major road but easily accessible. We liked it. Would definitely stay here again. Just a basic no frills park.

Great location. Right off 195 and route 9 but you don't hear any highway noise. Secluded, treed, a little tight in some areas for big rigs as others have noted. We had site 19. It has issues with power and sewer smell. Staff moved us, and our new site was awesome. GREAT pool, tennis courts, good camp store, and excellent shopping nearby. NJ is awful for RV parks. Just not enough choice. This is a very nice park and the staff was very friendly. We stayed here for over a week. It will be our regular NJ HQ when we travel here to visit with the kids/grandkids.

Huge park. Nice layout. 2 pools with cafe. Excellent facilities. Great camp store. One of the nicest we have seen. We stayed here two days. Staff was friendly and helpful. Saw lawn staff with weedwhackers, but don't know what they were doing. Only down side was the grass between sites was uncut and not trimmed in many locations. We would definitely stay here again. Full service facility. Easy in and out. Large open spaces for families and pets. Big rig friendly.

Well we had high hopes for this park. Unfortunately it does not handle bad weather very well. Its a dirt track on a hillside. Heavy rain washed the place out. Lost power. No internet. Overall for the price, this was not a good stay. Typical KOA format.

This is a large resort community made up of cabins, homes, and some small RV sites. Most were seasonal. Though you can park an RV here, it is not very accommodating for big rigs. We had a somewhat level pad, but the sewer was out. Beautiful lake and marina. 9 miles off the highway but easy access. Owner is VERY friendly. Family business for 53 years. Place was clean and overall nice. We would come here again and leave time for renting a boat and fishing. Just know that you need to be specific about your needs when making a reservation.

A little pricey but worth it. We have stayed here several times and try to get one of the luxury sites. They are $75 night but right on the lake with a dock and beautiful patio with Bull gas grill. The facilities are immaculate. Staff is nice. Store is sparse so bring all your stuff with you. Premium sites on lake are also nice. Check out Flat Creek Estates winery. It's about 20 miles east on 1431 but worth the drive. We live about an hour away in Georgetown so this is a perfect weekend getaway park. Love it.
