Very nice and quiet park, not far at all off I-20. Ask for a shady site, as not all have shade. Plenty of room to run our dogs. Nice water fountain play area for children. Well kept bathrooms. No problem backing into our site.

Not a bad park, but not a great park. It was the right distance along our route and got us northwest of Fort Worth, which is what we were looking for. Plenty of room for our dog to run, and a nice pool for us, both pluses. Plenty of highway noise, but not too bad as close to the road as the park is. Could use a little more maintenance and TLC, but the bathhouses were fine. Staff was very friendly. We'd stay again if we were passing this way.

Rate reflects retired military discount. Very nice, clean, well-maintained park with very friendly owners. Super new private shower facilities. Nice dog run area. Quiet despite proximity to I-20. We didn't have time to check out any recreational amenities except the pool, which was fine. We will definitely stay here again if we are in the area.

Physically what you'd expect in the desert. Not very shady but the trees they do have help. Professionally the staff is very nice and helpful. They are addressing electrical issues and we had no problems. Park is convenient to town and 25 miles /30 minutes to Caverns visitor center. Small but sharp stickers off the graveled roads are an unavoidable problem so stay on the gravel. Dog run on west side of park is much better than run on south side.

This is one of the quietest and shadiest RV parks we've stayed in. The staff is friendly and accommodating. The park is in the country about 12 miles SW of Athens, an easy drive. Most of the spaces are easy enough to get into, except for the biggest rigs. We had no problems in an SUV pulling a 24’ hybrid TT. A medium size Class-A with a toad navigated in and out of an adjacent site with no problem. The sites are level enough that we needed only one small block to be level. It rained a lot during our stay but nowhere did we see any drainage problems. While there are quite a few long-termers, they were indistinguishable from overnighters. The showers are well-maintained and plenty large. The dog run area is big enough for our big Aussie to have a good run. A trail runs around the perimeter, which is pretty large as only a small portion of the land is taken up with RV spaces. Gas is a mile up the road, groceries about six north, and Oconee Heritage Park six south, a great place for hiking and mountain biking. We will definitely stay here again.

This is an average campground which, with a bit of work, could easily be above average. Biggest drawback to us is the distance to the bathhouse. Second drawback is road noise as the campground is squeezed in between the freeway high above, and the older highway right behind the pull through sites. Neither carry much traffic but otherwise the area is so quiet that passing cars seem louder than they are. A noise barrier behind the row of trees would be a definite plus. The campground is convenient for touring the central VT/NH area as it's right on the border. Bring cash as they don't take credit cards. Everyone on the staff was friendly and helpful, and that fact almost brings this campground up to a 7.

You'd never guess you're staying in a city park at this RV Park. It's very nice, very convenient, and very reasonably priced. The grounds are very well kept. Most sites have a beautiful view of Lake Champlain. The bike trail into town goes right by the campground with easy access. Showers are 50 cents, apparently because they are open to beach-goers as well as campers. The staff is very friendly and helpful. I'd give this an 8 or 9 except many of the full hook-up sites need minor filling/leveling and a hefty cover of gravel. Because of rain most of these sites were muddy. We had to set up on the far side from the utilities so we wouldn't be stepping out into water or mud, so we were fairly close to the Class A next door. Other than that we really liked this park and would definitely stay here again.

This is an out-of-the-way fish camp that we stayed in on our way to Montreal because it was at the right daily distance and on a back road, which is fine with us. The staff is very friendly and the breakfast is good. The view of Black Lake is great. The bath/shower house is pretty small, but since we stayed on a fall weekday we didn't have to wait. We could have used our trailer shower anyway but like to sample the local facilities. If eccentric little local places are your cup of tea, this park will be fine for you.

This is a great park to stay in if you're visiting Niagara Falls. It's a lot cheaper than the commercial parks and, as noted, the campground pass gets you free parking at Niagara Falls state Park. We saved about $30 a day staying here, more than offsetting the 15 minute drive to the Falls. It's a beautiful place, right on the side of Lake Ontario. The staff is helpful and friendly. I'd give it a "10" if it had water and sewer connections. The bathhouses are clean and well maintained. We would definitely stay here again.

This is a nice RV park, and from the look of the architecture of the building is one of the earlier KOAs. The hosts are very friendly and helpful. Sites are nice but not especially shady. Plenty of freeway noise in our hybrid, but not a sleepbuster for us heavy sleepers. The bathhouse is down a fair hill from most of the sites but it's not a bad walk, even in the dark. Be sure to follow the campground's directions and not your GPS or you might get stuck on some seriously narrow backstreets.

This is one of the nicest RV parks we've stayed in. The staff is very friendly. The grounds are very clean and well-kept. The bathrooms and showers are excellent; they even have cloth bathmats by the shower stalls! The views are excellent all around. It's close to the freeway but just over the hill so you don't have much noise at all. We will definitely stay here again.

This is a very nice, well-maintained campground with a very nice staff. It is in an excellent location, looking out the mouth of Pensacola Bay into the Gulf, and about 10-12 minutes by car from downtown Pensacola. The sites are all wide concrete pads and are easy to get into. The shower house is as clean as any we've been in, but it could use some towel hooks by the sinks. This is one of the few places anywhere that dogs are allowed on the beach. All the campground asks is that you keep your pup on a leash and clean up after them. In the bonus department: the campground is 0.6 mile from the Naval aviation museum, and a bit farther is the lighthouse and Fort Barancas. If you're at the NAS at the right times of the year, the Blue Angels practice Tuesday and Wednesday mornings and visitors are welcome in the bleachers behind the museum. Even though the campground is just south of the west end of the runway, the jet noise is not bad. Most of us who can camp on a military installation like that kind of noise anyway. Our site was close to Radford Rd, one of the major roads into the NAS, so we noticed a bit of traffic noise in our hybrid TT. If possible ask for one of the sites farther from the road. We definitely plan on staying here again.

As noted, this campground can be a tight fit for larger rigs, but there were plenty of big rigs around our Envoy/hybrid travel trailer. The spaces are fairly narrow and close together, but shady. The upside is it is right in the middle of Moab and within walking distance of much of the central town area. It was plenty quiet, even for close quarters. Internet worked okay, tho' on Saturday night when the park was packed, it was slow. Showers/bath house were fine, although the men's room could use more than two toilets as there are plenty of tenters in the park. The dog walk area is small but adequate for most purposes except exercising a lively dog. We would stay here again.

This is a very nice state park that is quiet, clean and well-maintained. We stayed here as we skirted south of Memphis on US 49 and 278. The staff is friendly. The new shower house has push button water control that affords very little control and takes some getting used to but gives a decent shower. Signage to the park is a bit spotty, and as there are several parks around Sardis Lake it took us a few minutes to find the right one. As state parks go, this is in the upper half of the pack. We would stay here again.

If you are going across I-40 and need a stop on the west side of Memphis, this is the place. Spend a few minutes driving north of the freeway and enjoy this very quiet and pretty state park. The staff is friendly and courteous. All facilities are clean and well maintained. We would definitely stay here again.

This is a very nice park immediately adjacent to Bryce Canyon National Park. We got a slightly lower rate as we visited before the crowded season began. The showers are nice but located at the office, a good walk from some sites. A restroom closer to outlying sites is nice, clean and well-maintained. Internet access comes from the motel a ways down the road so it is slow and spotty. None of these minor complaints come close to offsetting the great convenience of being a couple of minutes from Bryce Canyon NP entrance. The "general store" is pretty pricey so we drove down to Tropic (7 miles east) to stock up and have dinner out. Plenty of room to walk the dog, though there's no designated dog park. We would definitely stay here again if we are back in the area.

As National Park campgrounds go, Grand Canyon North is great. You get no hookups so polish up your boon docking skills, but camping in the quiet forest 100 yards from the canyon rim makes up for skimping on water. The campground store is friendly, very reasonably priced and has wireless internet access. I don't know if it's an "official" store service, but the store has an outlet strip where you can plug in to charge batteries. We camped there beginning on opening day of the season so the contracted staff was still working out the kinks in the coin-operated showers ($1.50 for 7 minutes). The shower quality and consistency improved over the four days we stayed there. The laundromat worked fine. All the RV sites are paved: our hybrid travel trailer required a single 2x8 under the right-side tires for leveling. I recommend this park and the North Rim in general to anyone looking for a laid-back way to enjoy the Grand Canyon without the crowds of the South Rim.

This is a nice park in a convenient location staffed by people who absolutely could not care less if you stay there or somewhere else. I suppose being the only commercial RV park close to Zion National Park might have that effect. The showers are token-operated, not unusual in desert country, but have no soap dish, one hook, no bench, and no dry area save throwing your towel/clothes over the door. The single bath house has only two sinks, inadequate for a park this size. The message flatly and eloquently stated by a park employee is, "use your rig." (I'm glad I wasn't staying in a tent.) Once you get past the attitude the park has great views and is clean, quiet, and adjacent to a Springdale/Zion free shuttle. It's close enough that you can walk the quarter mile to the national park entrance. If there is a dog walk area, it is a well kept secret. We gave up asking the staff about anything. If we go back to Zion NP we will stay in one of the Park Service campgrounds.

Alpen Rose is a very nice park with an extremely friendly staff. The sites are roomy and accessible and the views are excellent. It's just far enough north of Durango that you're not in the crowds but can still be in town in five minutes. The dog run area is a few fenced acres (no kidding) so dogs of all sizes and energy can romp. The showers, bathrooms and laundry were very well maintained and worked well. Wi-Fi was easy and fast. Highway noise was negligible. Bonus! The narrow gauge train runs right across the road from the park. It was a beautiful spot and we will definitely stay here again when in the Durango area.

Walnut RV Park is a functional -- if spartan -- park. We stopped here on our way cross-country as Vega was located at our daily mileage target. It's certainly not a destination park, but with full hook-ups it's a good value for the money if you just need a place to layover for a night. The shower facilities are old but work fine, though my wife chose to shower in our small trailer. The park is neat is and well kept. The owner lives on the property and is quite friendly. There is no dog park but there are plenty of empty areas around where our pup could walk on a leash. Freeway noise was not noticeable under the canvas of our hybrid travel trailer. I would stay there again.
