This rate is for the after 6pm "express" arrival which puts you in a somewhat gravel pull-through that is adequate for the overnight full hookup, minus cable or wifi. If you want them, you have to go to the full price sites, but be sure to look at what cable you get (very few stations) and the wifi there is iffy we understand and "not reliable in cold weather". Well off 95 but very easy to get to; across 95 from a big Wal-Mart/shopping area. Clean, decent place to stay and we would return for an overnight. Not what we think of a "resort" but above a field campground. Nothing unpleasant to report. Water pressure was good. No shade sites.

Immaculate in every way. Long concrete sites a bit on the thin side, but lovely grass and plantings on both sides. Free cable and wifi (but it's Tangonet so can be iffy). Lovely bath/laundry/pool facility - doubles as tornado shelter (which we needed during our visit). Perfect for rallies. Right off I-95 at exit 29. Really could not be nicer.

Pretty pricey for November. Cable TV was out. Free WiFi does work well although not sure how long it is "free" as an access code may be required. The prompt comes up to indicate this, but office said it is free (at least today). Right on 95, Bass Pro Shop across 95 and lots of fast food places. Considerable road noise. Sites level, pull-throughs OK, gravel roads. Price includes KOA discount.

Mid-November visit, the campground was empty. Helpful staff. Free WiFi, with no one else using it, was great. 14 cable TV channels. Gravel/dirt roads. Did not use any facilities. Easy to find.

Fine for overnight e-z on/off of 81. There is no road noise nor cable or wifi. The road to campground is up a hill and getting out requires driving on gravel road with ruts on side. There is a huge truck stop at this plaza behind the buildings that would serve as well if you don't need hook-ups and want to save the $35. We will stop here again - and use the truck stop to stay over.

Sites on hills, roads poorly paved, narrow and difficult to maneuver in our 40' motorhome. Wi-Fi only in one building. Many trailers look permanent. Sites can barely accommodate some units, so best to check your site before trying to get in with the unit. Very wooded and would be good for summer camping with kids. We were fooled by a good TL rating: no doubt due to their large ad. Not a bad campground, but simply nowhere near the TL rating or ad.

Large ownership campground 30 miles in both directions from any store or gas station so be alert to where you are if you stay here. Adjacent activities all at fee. Several different areas range from standard to premium. Standard area has small plain sites, limited if any vegetation, many park models/permanent residents in trailers, Confederate flags, and resident decorations on their lots. Going upscale gives larger lots and more vegetation, some with built-in outdoor decks with huge trees and palms. Best spots are most expensive and on the "river". Arrive and look over the spots first to see what suits your preference. Sites on river are a 10, sites in standard section are a 4. Facilities are modern, 2 pools although a bit small for number of lots. Wi-Fi only in the clubhouse.

There are uneven sites, and many permanent looking trailers. They charge for wifi, charge for cable, etc. It is right off I-75. We would not return.

Truly lovely state park campground. Very large sites, private, lovely trees and shade. Entire park is lovely, quiet. Verizon air card coverage good. Small lovely town nearby. Beautiful walking/biking areas, near river. 30/50amp, no sewer, but dump station available. A top state park experience.

Huge campground, some sites on narrow concrete pads, others on grass. Some park models around. Small pool for the number of sites. There's a 9-hole golf course on site. Very crowded, very close sites. Grass sites subject to low ground water problems in rain. Would not stay here again.

Try to get one of the west facing waterfront spots. Very few sites for larger rigs, very crowded and at all odd angles to fit something on to every inch of this very small area, but very close to Cedar Key. Definitely a fun "island" experience, if not exactly on Cedar Key itself. Best to call for reservations as it's a long way and nowhere else to go, and not many places to turn around either! Come fully supplied as it's a long way back to major shopping. Friendly owners, motel also on property. Old Florida - think Key West 60 years ago! Don't miss Cedar Key State Park Museum.

Located 30 miles east of Cedar Key, a good spot for fishing and many fishing boats here. Rough roads inside park, site spacing ok. Rough 'n ready crowd keeps the Confederate flag flying high on the flagpole out front. Some big dogs around so beware. Very easy to find, largest campground closest to Cedar Key. Bring supplies to last your visit, since it is a distance to any big market.

We stayed here several times when it was Rock Crusher and enjoyed it greatly because it was spacious and quiet. Now it is full to capacity "deeded ownership" park. Level earth sites. Very nice poolhouse though undersized for the hundreds of full sites. Good location in Crystal River with many trees. A big community, no park models but a number of year-rounders with their possessions around their units. Close to town.

This is an ownership park. It has level sites, a small pool and more sites than optimal for the modest facilities. Some trees, most are on the owner sites. Sites are close, but not intolerable. OK for an overnight stop as renter.

It has many sites close together on flat area, paved roads, dirt/grass sites with concrete patio area. Pay wifi, free cable. There is a good activity level for those staying for winter. Water pressure is low. It is too far off I-10 for easy and easy out. We used our Passport America membership. The park appeared to be mostly filled with snowbirds.

Arrived by mistake at Mardi Gras which accounts for high price. Exceptionally friendly front desk, nice office building and very nice laundry. Good size acreage, but sites close together. It had not rained but there was standing water essentially everywhere. Check your site for position of all items in full hook-up to be sure you can reach all as needed. Good location, obviously trees still damaged from Katrina. Wi-Fi was essentially useless. No cable.

Excellent overnight park right off I-10. No noise from highway. Excellent wifi, limited cable (about 10 stations). Spotless facilities. Seems to be filled mostly with longterm customers, but all sites/facilities well-kept so you wouldn't notice unless you drive around and see all the spots filled. Looks like about 10 spots available for overnight visitors so good idea to call ahead to reserve. Passport America rate available for 2 nights. Nice staff. New park, well-managed.

From the Confederate flags hanging out boldly to greet you, to the very long term residents and all their belongings, driving down the bumpy roads avoiding the barking dogs, you'll wonder what you are doing here. Especially when there is a giant Wal-Mart a mile down the street that's free. PA does itself a disservice listing this place in its directory. The "saloon" is closed. On the positive side, there are many shade trees and it is directly on the main road.

Heavily shaded by wonderful big trees in nicer part of town at end road. Mostly a fixed mobile home park of older mobile homes which have obviously been here a lot longer than the newer big houses on the street. Long sites. Staff very nice. Given the RV parks in Del Rio area, this isn't any worse than most and with friendly owners doing their best and the trees are a big plus. Some general professional maintenance and site clean-up would be a big plus. Looked to us like there were mostly long termers here, based on all the stuff they had stored on their sites.

This park is not a 10 if you rate the facilities against a typical good RV resort/park. But, it is a 10 in friendliness, little extras, great cable and Wi-Fi (both free), incredibly friendly and helpful staff and residents. Park has a "cantina" with coffee/cookies/chips, nice TV viewing, an activity every day, very cozy places to congregate in comfortable chairs. Someone very thoughtful runs this park - that more than makes up for the few things that detract from the park ambiance. We are staying longer and will come back. Close to everything. There are trees and park vegetation. Like being in a friendly neighborhood where neighbors like to visit and chat.

RV area is in back of the motel. The land is on abandoned mercury mining area. The entire area is about as unattractive as we have seen anywhere. The highlight of the park is that there are no permanent trailers. From there it is pretty much downhill. It is a dusty lot with frequent manure droppings around. Cable TV "is not guaranteed" and there is no wi-fi. Staff is not friendly, and there are no discounts of any type. Bank/post office is across street. However, it is less ghastly than BJ's if you want to stay to see 170/Big Bend Ranch State Park Park and west side of BBNP. Then move quickly. Try park listed under Alpine on east side of park for a real treat from where you can visit Chisos Basin and eastern side of BBNP and enjoy this most unusual and entertaining park. Study Butte/Terlingua really is the end of the earth - but BBNP is worth it.

This is a real 10 state park. Wonderful sites, full hookups with cable TV (many channels). Scenery, roads, skyline drive, hiking trails - it's all here. Outdoors at its best in a gorgeous area full of fabulous things to see and no Wal-Mart for more miles than you can count and no strip malls either! The real rate though is the camping fee plus $4 per person per day - unless you have Texas State Park Pass ($60) - if you stay long enough or can use it at other Texas state parks. Don't miss this place.

This is a funky cowboy/horse area type campground property. There is a small store and "museum" on property - usually live music at night in the "museum", along with story-telling, DVD's of local interest. Often meals are available too, home cooked by the owner (who is very friendly.) It is a freat way to enter eastern entrance (at end of 385 from Marathon) of Big Bend. You might be parked next to a horse trailer. Email in advance for more information before you come - long way back to Marathon or Alpine. Full hookups 50amp, and less, available on dirt parking lot surrounded by desert and mountains. There are no real park facilities, but you are in the middle of nature and with fun-loving and amusing people who stay here - it's a real experience you aren't likely to find anywhere else. We would definitely come again. This listing should probably be under Big Bend National Park or Marathon, not Alpine.

Delightful desert state park with friendly staff. Make sure you have the reservations done online or by phone, and call ahead if you do not have reservation. There is a complex NM state park system of being able to say only l night without reservation, then all further nights MUST be reserved online/phone plus $10.60 reservation fee per site. This is VERY close to Las Cruces - just zip south on I-25, also to Hatch. Eat at the Pepper Pot and Sparky's! Close to White Sands NP and also be sure to visit Aguirre Springs Canyon State Park nearby.

The good news: view from front row facing the Organ Mountains (toward Las Cruces) is fabulous. Las Cruces is about 11 miles west right on I-10. Campground is right off I-10 with very easy on/off access. PA discount is available if you ask and show card (not just number - need card). Sites decent enough with tree between each. Large storage area for trailers. Will fit biggest rig. Some picnic tables, some shade trees. This is the cheapest campground anywhere near Las Cruces - except for Leasburg State Park which is north of Las Cruces by 14 miles - make sure you have reservations before going there and can get electric or what you need. The other news: if you are not from farming area, beware of the huge dairy/cow farm diagonally across street which, if the wind is blowing in direction of campground, makes the smell of manure overwhelming, but if you keep all windows closed and do not go outside, it is OK. Sometimes there is no odor. We were here in January - I would not want to think about hot months. Wi-Fi is barely usable, cable goes on/off and has only a very few channels. Saw laundry/rest room building but did not dare enter - out near garbage containers way in back near trailer storage. Did not see any security problem, but it seems good idea to keep vehicle in sight and all doors locked at all times. Bottom line: at PA rate it is very convenient, budget stop near Las Cruces/El Paso. If you want F/HU it may be only budget place available. It is not unbearable at all, we did not see any long term tenant issues. If you can get in the first row facing Las Cruces, it is a plus. If you plan not to be there hanging out, it is fine for your visit to other areas and using this as base. We would stay here again because Las Cruces prices are $35+++.

A large gravel/dirt lot with hook-ups with occasional tree. Small indoor pool and hot tub in cement building. Excellent fast free Wi-Fi and decent cable free. Clean large laundry ($l.00 each for w/d) with new machines. Friendly management and daily activity. Monthly rate is $275 + electricity (currently about 12 cents/kwh) or $22/day + electricity. A very quiet older town, new Wal-Mart within walking distance as is library and cinema complex. A few things of interest to see locally. Winter climate is moderate, but winds can be strong and it can be in 20's at night. Off I-10 but quiet.

Beautiful, magnificent, beautifully furnished office/clubhouse/laundry/bathrooms/patio/hot tub all spotless clean and new. Free light breakfast, afternoon cookies and coffee/tea, magarita parties on Friday afternoons, wonderful staff. Sites are on the close side with privacy landscaping on one side, all pebble sites so dust is common. Excellent location. Great for a few days, but price is a bit high which probably limits longer term stays. Good cable but wifi is not good throughout park (and for the price it should be.) We always stop here for a few days and wish the monthly price were more reasonable because we would be happy to stay for 2-3 months.

Typical KOA: costs too much, good signage, lots of plastic stuff around. There is a big pebble/dirt parking area with plenty of room. It has a basic cafe and very basic store. Friendly staff. It is not worth the price, but apparently better than the other choices in the area.

Perfect overnight stop right off I-20. Level pull-thru sites, friendly owners, road noise is not burdensome. Spotless laundry with excellent new machines (washer $1.00/40 minute wash and dryer $1.00 for 60 minute dry) that actually get things clean unlike most campground machines for more. We will always stop here for overnight when this way. Sites close but for overnight, who cares?

Nice campground surrounded by nice fields west of Guthrie's center. Has par 3 golf course. Quiet. One or two cedar trees at each site. Clean, safe. We stayed for 1 night at PA rate. Wi-Fi is locked and we did not arrive in time to get code. Concrete pad for RV, grass surrounding. Pleasant views all around.

Older campground (not resort) with nice, helpful and friendly staff working hard to update/improve the campground. Mostly dirt roads and sites, some trees, mostly level. New and nice laundry ($1.50/wash and .25/8 min. dryer) spotless clean. Very good Wi-Fi, many cable stations - both free. Passport America limits include not on weekends, holidays or more than 3 nights. No sign on main road so call to get clear instructions - easy to find when you know what to look for. Adjacent to city walking/jogging trail which is very nice. Close in to the town. No noise.

Close beside active train tracks, however, long pull through sites and much area in the campground to walk on grass or take hiking trail. Very convenient off of I-70 about 20 minutes west of Topeka, 20 minutes south of Manhattan and 50 minutes east of Abilene. In beautiful Flint Hills and Tall Grass area - many scenic drives close by in the beautiful prairies. Come here for the scenic drives and nice getaway from city areas. Much better than available campgrounds in Abilene if you are going to visit Eisenhower Museum. Lovely scenic place. PP limit is 2 days. Town of Paxico, population 200. We stayed for 3 days and found it restful and enjoyable.

Good spot to do sightseeing in Independence and Kansas City - convenient to all. Fair price, nice laundry ($1.00 for wash or dry), iffy free Wi-Fi. Close but long spots to fit any rig, car in front. Not for recreational opportunities at the campground or long stays for vacation, but perfect for sightseeing base to local areas. Safe area right in the middle of the historic district of Independence.

Lovely campground in excellent location with nice scenery adjacent. Leaf and evergreen trees throughout campground amid sites. All sites are very spacious and thoughtfully laid out. Nice picnic tables and sturdy fire ring at each site. Good roads, good signage, easy to find. Many owners would put 150 sites in the area this campground has 36. Cordial, helpful, friendly owner. Excellent laundry/bathrooms and amenities with guest enjoyment in mind. Definitely will visit here again. Excellent free Wi-Fi.

We were here in early November and the campground had only 3-4 visitors. There is plenty of space, excellent strong wi-fi, very friendly owner. We thought it was lovely, lots of grass, quiet, no road noise, close to downtown Springfield (10 minutes to the excellent Lincoln Museum). We did not see bathrooms or laundry. The owner, was exceptionally cordial and helpful. We usually use KOA only as last resort but we were pleasantly surprised with this one. Right in the middle of cornfields, but nice big trees too.

Not scenic, but safe and decent for visiting Indianapolis area and very close to downtown Indianapolis area. Right off of 37 near 465. Convenient location. Near major shopping areas.

Lovely large Ohio state park on Route 58 slightly south of Lorain, just south of town of Oberlin (home of Oberlin College). Many sites, excellent paved roads, many long hiking trails, lake, very wooded, good facilities. Convenient and good dump site and water available. Enough room for everyone to bike, hike, relax. Quiet, easy to find. Go south on 58 through lovely farmland area and see Amish carriages on the road with you.

Gigantic RV/house/park model type of place with every amenity, numerous neighborhoods and levels of sites. It does not have any transient feel and most sites are owned and you'll get a sales pitch. If you are "on the road" exploring to see new and different areas and folks, this probably isn't the place for you. If you want a Florida place for the winter to golf (too cold for swimming this far north) or socialize, this might be it. Gated community, miles of roads to bike/walk on.

Great location. Old fish camp with haphazard site arrangement. If you have a big rig, be very careful to walk to your site first and check for potential dangers. We got a good site for our 40' MH, but the 40' that pulled in next to us at night got stuck in deep sand and we spent all night helping them dig out the rig so the commercial tow truck could pull them out (hours of digging in sweltering heat and bugs with every breath.) Beach right at campground is beautiful sight, but loaded with broken glass - do not even think of swimming there or walking without solid shoes - for some reason the bottles tossed overboard by the boats all come to this area. Nice area to walk around, ladies who run office are lots of fun, pool is heated and shaded and generally clean. Bathrooms fall just at OK. Nice place to rest under the trees and away from everything. Gorgeous state beaches for swimming a short drive away. Long ride back to stores. I wouldn't risk it with kids due to dangers and lack of kid things to do. Think redneck fishing camp that lets in RVs. You need good driving skills to stay here. Arrive early in day as you get to pick your spot - not many for bigger size rigs. You might be next to a tent - we met lovely people tenting next to us.

Good points: close to ocean, close to stores, close to West Palm Beach area, very nice pool and good lounges, good shade at pool, good if pricey laundry, some sites have wonderful vegetation and concrete pads. Bad points: very crowded, questionable management, all condos with attendant problems, small roads, small sites in many cases, many older park models, one area appears to be low income rentals, many sites for sale, high cost, large numbers of grandkids during all school holidays. Not built for today's motorhome sizes.

Much nicer than usual KOA. Spacious sites, some nicely made on hillsides, good pull-throughs, nice overall arrangement with thoughtful details. Great area for touring Blue Ridge Parkway. Call ahead for directions. Very friendly management. None of the usual KOA junk (rental toys, etc.) laying around or in evidence. Sites much better than usual KOA style. Not an "all kids, all the time" type KOA. Garbage can at almost every site. Will return happily.

Big new KOA with numerous things for kids/groups -loads of space, pavilions, organized activity spaces, large restaurant, store filled with goodies kids will love, friendly management. At Exit 100 of I-81. Gravel level sites, no vegetation between, lovely area in general. If you like KOA's, you'll love this one as it is much larger, newer, less cluttered, friendlier management than most. They even have garbage pick-up! Family style campground. Our Verizon broadband air card and Verizon phones worked well.

Close to historic downtown, next to new Publix. Easy access to islands, plantations, downtown and all highways. If you need 50 amp/sewer, call ahead to be sure of availability. Relaxing place to stay, sites not too close and access via paved roads is good. We will stay here again.

Beautifully managed and maintained resort. Lovely sites. An oasis in the middle of light industrial/commercial side of town, heavy traffic locally.

Right on a large tidal bay, great for shallow swimming (high tide) or clam digging or walks (low tide), sandy beach adjacent. Very scenic area. Easy to find with directions from campground. Toilets are portapotties scattered throughout campground. Ocean sites are in large field area with no sewer connections, but honey wagon is available and dump site near entrance. Campground is not particularly well kept although the owners are very nice and helpful. Lots of room for kids to wander and play. Excellent lobsters (cooked or uncooked) available delivered to your campsite by local lobster people. Exceptionally buggy (mosquitoes and green head flies) when we were there in late July. Just south of Bath. Overall the campground is spacious in general, outstanding scenic views, great location, but needs basic maintenance and groundskeeping. We suffered a bad black ant infestation at our site, which, with the mosquitoes and flies, made our visit a bit unpleasant overall.

Adjacent to a stream that is a water attraction and just off I-81 in Lickdale, PA. Rather poorly maintained campground with busy expanded campground store open at 4AM-10PM. Appears to be popular with regulars and permanent residents. Friendly staff. The only site available when we arrived was over the dump station - where the young man said we could hook up to water and electric. We did not hook up to water ("nice spring water") and luckily since the signs (pointing in other directions) said "water not for drinking".

Tent, small trailer and cabin oriented family campground with nice landscaping and large grass areas. Many planned family type activities. There are some gravel pull thrus for larger motorhomes, but in a parking lot style area. The prettier areas of the campground are tight for larger vehicles and have very limited parking for tow vehicle. Storage of old vehicles on the property detracts from overall attractiveness. The "lake" is very shallow and was full of weeds on our visit. Large price list with upcharges for 50amp, sewer, cable, etc.

Mostly ill-kept area for permanent residents, but also an area for daily visitors that is acceptable for an overnight. Gravel interior roads and spots. Looks like there are not too many rules about anything so those not liking rules might like this place. If you need to stay here, call ahead because of the Freightliner factory and service nearby, it can be filled by groups. Not a destination. The wonderful national scenic by-way Route 11 goes from Gaffney south to Lake Hartwell area.

We stayed here one week. We found the place absolutely lovely in every way and could not suggest a way to make it cleaner or better managed. We found the staff very cordial and they do a wonderful job from everything we saw. This is obviously a meticulously cared for park. If you need space/entertainment for children or pets, the lovely nearby St. Andrew State Park is a great location.

What a jewel of an RV park. Spacious treed sites with covered ramada and in ground fire pit, overlooking Lyman Lake. Trails, petroglyphs, hiking, walking, swimming, fishing, boating.

Beautiful views in every direction and sites spread around large area.

Excellent park for staying while taking the train. Brand new, spotless and spacious facilities, excellent management, nice town. Great to stay while you take the train or drive to the Canyon. Very kid/animal friendly. No shade, but nice views in all directions. Trains not bothersome - only 1-3 a night, but hours in between. This is not the line that goes through Flagstaff with 125 trains/day. Try Pancho McGuillicudy's on Main Street for very good Mexican food and atmosphere. The train was great. Avoid the $28/pp "Grand Rim Tour" - buses are old, dirty and sully the experience with diesel fumes. The train depot is right across from the free NPS shuttles on the park roads and you can easily find something to eat and avoid the "hot buffet" cafeteria that comes with the tour. Supermarket within walking distance, as is Main Street of Williams.

Very nice modern, spotless campground, excellent bathrooms and laundry. Very friendly management and other campers. Paved roads, stone sites with desert landscaping with small trees at many sites. Overlooking Lake Mead. Busy on weekends with boaters so call ahead for reservations. Very close to Hoover Dam and 21 miles from Las Vegas. Stay here and drive into Vegas rather than getting mixed up in the noise and crowding of Vegas. Definitely would return. Cash or check only.

Regular fee is $24 - we used Passport America and for $12 were eligible for water/electricity only site, but a very nice pull through one in the middle of the park. No road noise.

It is in the middle of the Gila National Wilderness, 4 miles from the famous "Catwalk" National Recreation Trail. 3 fabulous natural hot springs pools (fee). 360 degree views of magnificent mountains, river valley. Huge sites that can accommodate whichever view you wish to face (east or west) with full hook-ups on both sides. Picnic tables and lovely stone fire/BBQ structures at each site. Several beautiful tent sites. This campground is only for those seeking a true nature experience and who do not wish noise, amenities or entertainment features. Two lovely home-style bathrooms (l handicap accessible), laundry. Nearest stores are in Silver City - about 60 miles south. If you wish to be out of touch with this crazy world and in total touch with nature, complete peace, quiet and totally dark skies full of stars...this is the place. Reservations required. Wonderful owner/manager.

Typical KOA. Very nice staff, lots of kid stuff to use or rent, facilities neat but in need of real cleaning rather than quick swipe cleaning. Our row of sites (A) had good space between sites. Brick patios unlevel and landscaping typical of the "more or less" style of KOA upkeep. Convenient to everything with good bus service to downtown. Picnic tables and BBQ's at site. Nice shade trees.

Impressive brochure, lovely entrance, huge (2700 acres) property of an old large fort with many buildings, many restored some time ago in some parts. The further one drives into the park, the shabbier things begin to look. Many of the buildings have been turned into row houses - which if cared for, would be lovely. Other parts of the park have aging park models here and there. The "RV" park is a big dirt parking lot with spaces close together, no shade - a big disappointment because there is a lot of undeveloped land. Our site overlooked the storage area of obsolete boats, trailers and junk. We had hoped to stay for a week or so, but checked in for only 1 night and were thankful we could use Passport for a total price of $12.75. The whole place looks like it is quite short of funds and is sliding downhill, despite all the very interesting facilities, land, huge natural springs pool, 2 golf courses, 22 miles of roads to bike and walk. Sites quite close together also. Not the worst RV place we have ever seen, but for sure the biggest disappointment. A couple of million into this entire place to re-energize it and it would be sold out year-round.

This natural campground is a little gem in the middle of not much. It is right along the Nueces River, has much open space and grass, and many very large shade trees. Many back-ins available along the river or overlooking the river. Several pull-throughs as shown on their website. If you want a quiet, peaceful, natural setting with birds, wildlife, and lots of walking area, this lovely campground should be considered. Sites are spacious and not all side-by-side. Picnic tables and fire rings with a big box of wood for $3. What a delight after staying in the crowded RGV!

New campground that rates lower than a resort, but better than a campground. Back-in concrete sites a bit close together. Unique circles of RV's and very large sites also available. Mostly Canadians and mid-westerners spending the winter. Only a couple of park models which are for rent, as well as several "casitas". Nice landscaping, right next to state park right on Rio Grande. Too small swimming pool. Excellent laundry and bathrooms. Woodworking and crafts. Many activities. Probably the nicest RV park in the RGV.

On 12/22/06 this lovely park turned into a KOA. Immediately there was a significant downturn in services to KOA level. This has been a very nice, spotless, friendly park. This area is very, very windy - usually at least 10-15mph, if not more commonly 20-30mph+.

The park is on CR1431 - small sign. Call ahead (at least l day, preferably more) for instructions. Voice mail answers calls and you have to await return call which could be some hours. The park has a lower part where cell/TV reception is poor unless you have monthly cable service. The lower part of the park is the more attractive area with nice trees and not all sites are side by side. The upper part of the park is newer with close sites, but better cell reception and unattractive views. No pool, no cable TV. Looks to be more of an extended stay type of campground. About 30 minutes from downtown Austin, but the development is encroaching very fast. Come to see the Texas hill country before it is all developed which will be soon. We stayed in the lower section and just barely got Verizon reception. Friendly management.

You won't believe this campground is a KOA. Nestled in a beautiful area surrounded by lovely large trees everywhere, you'll have a very large site. Beautiful, quiet campground to walk around. Friendly staff. Close to many interesting sites and excellent shopping. Adult oriented.

Better than average KOA. Many large shade trees, nice facilities. About 13 miles east of Oklahoma City but quick access on big highways takes you into the city easily. Clean new large washers and dryers ($l.50 each). Much better than other local campgrounds which seem to lean toward old trailers and noisy areas. We would stay here again. Child facilities are in one area. Very cordial staff. Verizon broadband air cards get 100% reception here. Easy online reservation system.

Probably the best place to stay while visiting DC. They have clear, correct, detailed information in writing on everything you need to know about getting into DC. Onsite Metro bus stop at the main entrance. Very good facilities and park events for all types of campers. Gravel sites, mostly side-by-side. The most camper-friendly management policies we have ever experienced. Well-staffed, friendly, helpful - the store even carries the New York papers!

Excellent for kids/teens - numerous activities and facilities available. Typical Jellystone campground, some gravel pull through sites.

Excellent brochure and ad, not so great campground. Not suitable for large motorhomes due to soft, moist grass sites. Many children. Good for families with children, not too fussy about facilities. Definitely lower end campground, not RV resort.

In the woods at the "Desert of Maine" attraction of nature trails, an unusual sand desert of 47 acres. Big rig access at only a few sites - call ahead and verify. Many sites have no sewer hookup. Lovely shaded, wooded sites for smaller RV's. Great location right off 295 in Freeport, very friendly help. Lots of things to see easily accessible from here. Quiet, scenic, natural type campground, clean and well-kept. Desert is quite interesting to visit.

A little jewel just off I-95 far enough to have no road noise. No fancy facilities, just good paved sites, nice large trees surround the park, no ugly sights to look at (at least when the trees are all out, nice picnic table at each site. Laundry and cable TV. In great location to see the numerous local sights of interest or just stop for an overnight off 95. Fine for big rigs towing - our site was 71'. Cash only. Friendly, helpful management.

This park is delightful - it's on 48 acres, has excellent recreational facilities - golf, walking trails, nature trails, long bike path, watersports, ball fields of all types. No swimming pool and no swimming in lake, but plenty of boats and skiing on lake. Very helpful and kind park rangers. Clean campground, good security. This is a family friendly park, but not totally overrun by kids - at least when we were there. It is busier on weekends. You can camp with a tent to a big rig and be part of the fun. Close to every type of store. Next to small airport so if airplane noise bothers you a lot - this might be a problem for you. If you like to be active or observe activity, this is a great spot! We loved it.

A true 5 star resort. About l/2 park models, l/2 RV sites with 25' lower limit, special Class A section. 2 pools (both under screen) and 2 clubhouses - l small and l large of each. In North Naples just a block down from Immokolee Road on Collier Road (951). Publix, drugstore, other services across street. Well run, spotless, beautifully landscaped park and sites. Many activities in season. Not a resort for kids. What you would expect to get for the price. Traffic in Naples is increasing by the day - almost intolerable Jan-end of March.

Excellent new facilities, good wifi. 50%+ of sites are park models. No shade, gravel RV site with concrete patio and concrete car park area (not connected). Could be improved greatly by more landscaping between sites to provide shade and privacy. Surrounding area is south Florida agricultural. Rating of 5W in Woodall's is accurate for facilities, inaccurate for sites and general atmosphere. More of a mid-level snowbird resort than an upscale resort.

This must be one of the older Outdoor Resorts. We were surprised to see how small most of the pads were and pretty low maintenance of area, pads and facilities - compared to most Outdoor Resorts. Internet access is essentially impossible from the resort unless you have cell internet service. You have to go to the one island internet cafes and pay (about 10 minutes) or the library (good luck). The pool area was very nice although maintenance of it was a bit sparse. It looked like there is no on-site maintenance manager; we did see contractors coming in but moving pretty slow. The resort has a good central location and apparently is one of the only 2 on the island, but it sure has lowered our expectations of an Outdoor Resort. The sites are so narrow and the landscaping so poorly done - but again, certainly better than many "campgrounds" we have been in. Staff friendly.

Location is very good for Disney access. Price is steep at $64/night in mid-April, plus $2.00 for cable. Plus $6 per 12 hours wifi access (only other options are for monthly access rates) with very low signal reception (we were next to the Hotspotzz station we were told. ) This is definitely a updated KOA, roads and sites are paved, occasional patio furniture, but it is a KOA - sites are close together in most cases. If being close to Disney/shopping are your needs, this is OK. We have stayed in worse campgrounds in this area, but the price here seems a bit on the high side for a KOA. The total tab less the KOA discount, plus the taxes was $67.23 for one night. The cost of the wifi via Hotspotzz is really aggravating - most other wifi companies at campgrounds at least give you 24 hours for the price or offer 3 day or 1 week service at reasonable cost. But like everything at any KOA - expect the least for the most.

This campground is in beautiful Alpine which is about 100 miles from the center of Big Bend National Park. It is 26 beautiful miles to Ft. Davis National Park which is very worthwhile, and from there take the 72 mile scenic route that is magnificent - and stop and see one of the world's best astronomy observatories along the way. Alpine has a great little main street and side streets with wonderful little restaurants, a couple of excellent book shops (with the New York Times and WSJ available daily!), a number of art galleries, a couple of bars with live music and a real little west Texas feel to it. There is a Big Bend Museum at the local Sul Ross University in town. This RV park is a campground, not a destination with full facilities for entertainment. There is excellent wifi. Each site has 1-2 15-18' pine trees on it, most have picnic tables and some cactus here and there. Laundry is very clean. Mouintain views in every direction are beautiful. The sites are very long and car/RV washing is available at a special spot in the campground for a small charge (this is a semi-arid desert). Roads and sites are dirt and level and there is grass in all areas that are not roads or sites. We came for a day and we are staying for at least a week - we had no idea this part of Texas had so many interesting things to see and do. We're going to follow 90 over to San Antonio - no additional mileage from I-10 and lots of things to see on this red road.

The supply of campgrounds in the Keys is very tight so you can't expect much to start with. This is a typical KOA - zillions of kids in the streets, tight spots, lots of noise, facilities run down and prices high. If you like high confusion, tiny sites and essentially no beach - this is the place for you. We got one of the most expensive sites right on the water - we were so close to the neighbors sides and back that we could hear their normal conversations from inside their RVs to inside ours. Great place for those seeking lots of activities and lots of kids. Adults only seeking quiet better go somewhere else - like Bluewater Key - for the same money.

As of 2/05 this place looks l/2 finished and looks like it is going to be mostly park models. Paved roads, gravel sites, modern clubhouse/pool, but no charm or atmosphere. This is a couple of miles past the military base of Ft. Huachuaca in busy Sierra Vista. The weather here is usually good and there are many things to see in the area. The management needs to pay attention to adding some major landscaping to turn this into a nice park, not a gravel parking lot. We got the feeling it is about l/2 finished. Can't imagine how TL and Woodall's could give this place great ratings in its current condition.

Probably near the top of the KOA parks, but still has tired and overpriced facilities. Lots of kids, lots of rental wheeled vehicles for kids, very busy on weekends. Only some sites get wifi, most do not so be sure to ask on reservation. One dial-up connection in activities room. Many sites are very tight and barely room or tow vehicle - ask for a large site if you have a 40' or larger. Most roads are very tight to maneuver. Paved roads, concrete sites, grass between sites, but sites are close. Nice shade trees. Locked gates at night. Much better than most KOAs. Lots of rallies. I wouldn't call it a "resort", but it is a good campground close to the city.

Great RV resort. Sites are concrete, all paved roads, lots of shrubs and trees between sites although they are a bit close. Great facilities, adjacent to wonderful parks and marina. Many activities. Good security. Make reservations. Bike trails, walking trails along parks, no city noise, 8 miles from downtown San Diego. $5/day wifi. You won't be sorry if you stay here.

OK for overnight in Yuma when passing through, very easy access of I-10W. Mostly snowbirds in small trailers/mobile homes. Pull throughs are close but tolerable. Not what we would call a destination resort.

Very convenient to everything, good facilities. Not scenic in any way, easy on, easy off from freeway. A good base for seeing the area. In addition to the daily rate, there are 3 taxes, an electric charge and phone charges added to the bill. Clean, utilitarian. Each site has nice table and chairs and a small citrus tree, sites are adequate size.
