Clearly West Lake RV Resort caters to longer term clients with attractive monthly rates and practically no campground facilities. For example there are three showers and two toilets in each bathroom for 159 sites. You will need to call for daily rates and in my case the receptionist requested a rate different from that provided previously. West Lake is convenient for activities west of Houston not downtown which is 30 miles east on busy Katy freeway. If you're camping experience calls for a big concrete parking site, strong Wi-Fi signal and invisible neighbors west of Houston, this is the place.
I've always liked Galveston Island and Sandpiper RV adjacent to Stewart Beach is a welcome addition to rather scarce camping facilities in the area. The location is excellent. The elevated swimming pool, hot tub and waterfall are very nice. The large concrete sites are good. The campground employees offered little to this paying guest and dismissing me with as few words as possible. The men's facilities were not very clean with standing water in the middle of the room. Wi-Fi signal and TV cable are barely functional.
The park is located in a colorful valley on the road up to Silverton just a few miles north of Durango. The narrow gauge train passes nearby but you can only hear the toot. Office folks are are friendly and helpful and camper-workers fill out the staff. I especially liked the simple, peaceful environment that they have created here.
Location, location, location and that's about all Bayou Shores offers! Not because it couldn't offer more, but because the management doesn't appear willing to do more. Located on the Southern shore of Offatts Bayou, Bayou Shores is the closest CG to historic downtown Galveston and the Gulf beaches. Unfortunately the men's bathroom had only one shower working and wasn't cleaned at all during our week long visit. The women's bathroom had the same "out of service until 5:00PM" sign on the door all week. My site included beer bottle caps, a few old D batteries and dog waste. What a shame.
Well I must agree that Rancheros has a campground atmosphere and is not a typical big rig paved parking lot. Most sites are shaded and separated from your neighbors by small trees. There is a nice walking trail and the place is always clean and quiet. If you ask for help, the staff will direct you to the most level position on your site. I like being far enough out of town to feel like I’m camping in the high, cool and dry NM hills. GPS: 35deg 32.737' N; 105deg 51.889' W
White's City Resort RV Park is a disgrace. The location and the layout seem valid but the park is in terrible condition and the bath houses need to be closed until they are cleaned and repaired. The person at check-in assumed that I wanted to stay for only one night. When we drove around the hotel to the campground, I understood why!
Cedar Haven is a quiet, tree-covered spot near the Freeport ME Outlet shops, L.L. Bean retail stores and Wolf Neck State Park. The owner is very personable but the campground is a bit overpriced for its condition and facilities. Good Sam Park Affiliate. Open May 1 to Nov 1 GPS Coordinates: 43o 53.173’ N; 70o 05.356’ W
The Best Holiday Trav-L-Park Chattanooga is a well equipped and maintained campsite nearby GA I-75 exit #1. The reception desk personnel are exceptionally helpful and courteous. The entire campground is kept neat but the private showers and restrooms are always clean and even have country music piped-in. You actually see people working around the place. This may not be the most beautiful campground around but everything that’s there works well. You need to prepare yourself for some cooking at the campsite because only the usual array of fast food restaurants is nearby.
If you’re coming to Libby’s bring your binoculars and a fresh credit card and come before or after the summer season. If you are lucky enough to find one of the 45 oceanfront sites open, don’t expect any discounts here. During our three visits in early October we’ve experienced fresh fall sunshine, a storm that howled for three days and this year warm, sunny summer-like weather. The campground is a grassy parking lot with about 10-feet separation between sites on Lobster Cove, on the Atlantic. I find York Township lovely, long sand beach adjacent to Libby’s just perfect and at the other end of the beach there is the Nubble Light. About 15-min away are the Kittery Outlet Mall, Cap’n Simeon’s Seafood Restaurant and Chauncey Creek Lobster Pier. York Harbor is simply one of my favorite spots to visit.

If you are going to Houston for something in the northern part of town then Central KOA is the place. There is good access to the main freeways (I-45, US-59, Hardy Toll Road and Beltway 8) but the neighborhood itself is light industrial and near enough to the airport to hear the early morning departures. The campsite is family operated by a nice couple that lives on-site and has all the usual amenities. The condition of the campsite seems to depend on whether Work Campers are currently employed or not. I’ve seen it both ways. Without the help routine housekeeping doesn’t get done.
