Campground Review

11/14/2012.. Bordortown Casino RV Resort, Ok for a stopover. We only stopped for the night so we can’t really judge it.

11/15/2012… Whiskey Flats RV Hawthorne NV. — Ok for a couple nights. There is a casino in town, bathrooms ok. Not much in the area. Good place to chill for a day while passing through.

11/16–11/17 2012..  Beatty RV in Beatty NV. Was OK but would just head into Death Valley next time

11/18–11/20/12..            Dry camping by Furnace Creek in Death Valley — We liked it a lot. The Furnace Creek campground looked good as well. Probably had more privacy dry camping in the lot than we would have had in the actual campground. But certainly will give the campground a shot in the future.

11/21—11/28/12..          Lakeside Casino RV Park in Pahrump NV. What a great place and great setting. Would for sure stay here again. The town itself wasn’t that great but the park is outside of town with a nice lake setting. Sites are a little close together but not bad. And they have GRASS!!

11/28–12/5/12.. Silver View RV in Bullhead City NV. —   Sites are too close together for me,, I would just stay for the passport America discount days and move on next time.

12/5—12/11/12.. Lake Havasu State Park Lake Havasu AZ. — Great Great place..   site  #10 is perfect by the lake. I could stay here a couple weeks easy.

12/11—12/18/12.. Quail Run RV in Quartzsite AZ.  — Probably the best place in Quartzsite. Very clean. Priced a bit high I think.

12/18…12/23/12..Scaddan Wash outside Quartzsite AZ–   14 day dry camping allowed but a lot of freeway noise from I-10

12/24…12/25/12..           Quail Run in Quartzsite AZ.–  Spent 2 days to dump tanks and do laundry and had xmas potluck . Best campground in Quartzite other than dry camping.

12/26…1/1/13.. Plomosa Road outside Quartzsite AZ.–  Spent 6 days dry camping. 5 miles outside of Quartzsite. Good spot

1/1…1/15/13.. Indian Waters in Indio Ca.– Lots to do. Big spaces. Probably the best we have been at so far to date. Would return. Great place for the price to tour the Indio/Palm Springs area.

1/15…1/21/13.. Laposa South by Quartzsite AZ. — Dry camped with Tiffin group. Has dump station and water but more crowded than Plomosa Road.

1/21…2/8/13.. West wind RV and Golf Resort Yuma Az. – Huge place, lots of park models, lots of amenities, a little much like a trailer park for us. Made me feel like I was living in a mobile home park, but a nice one. No views except trailers. Not really our kind of place.

2/8..2/23/13.. Quartzsite Plomosa Road Quartzite Az. — RV Dreams Boondocking rally, we really like dry camping here.

2/23..2/24/13.. Saddle Mountain RV Park Tonopah Arizona — Wide spaces, palm trees,   pickle ball, pool & , good laundry, nice people, easy in and out, would stay again.

3/15…3/28/13.. Saguaro Escapee Coop Benson Arizona– Escapees only, nice views, very friendly, propane on site, have to pay electric, work shop, would come back.. Lots to do in the area if you want to drive. We could do a moth there pretty easy.

3/29…4/1/13… Dream Catchers in Deming New Mexico — Escapees park, easy on & off freeway, freeway noise, gravel lot, ok for overnight otherwise I’d pass next time. Noisiest park we have been in by far!

4/1…4/8/13… City of Rocks State Park, Deming New Mexico—Dry camping with a few hookup sites. Cool rock formations, great walking trails, we dry camped in #18, good seclusion would come back. This has to be the most peaceful place we have been along with Organ Pipe. But the privacy of our camp spot would get the nod here.

4/8…4/24/13… Elephant Butte RV Resort, Elephant Butte NM — The best bathrooms & showers we have ran across. Dog wash $7 for 12min. Good monthly rate. Overpriced by the day or weekly rate but pay for a month and stay for 2 weeks and its great. Nicest bathrooms we have seen by far. Friendly staff

4/24..4/29/13… Oliver Lee state park Alamogordo NM — Nice small state park, nice view, at base of mountains, clean restrooms with showers, would come back. Clean bathrooms, nice sized spaces, good hiking, 12 miles outside Alamogordo, certainly would come back.

5/6…5/9/13… Palo Duro State Park Amarillo Texas — Mesquite campground is the best, no Verizon service, lots of trails, can’t be compared to the Grand Canyon.

5/9…5/12/13…  Oasis RV park in Amarillo Texas — Close to freeway, good Wi-Fi, ok restrooms, nothing there to warrant the price, ok for a couple of nights

5/12…5/17/13…  Foss Lake State Park outside Foss Lake OK — 3 campgrounds, 1 tent, 1rv by the lake with 50amp & water, one in the trees away from the lake. The campground by the lake is very nice. Big lake, shade trees, grass, no Verizon, boat ramp and docks, would come here again.

5/17…5/20/13…  Twin Fountains RV Park Oklahoma City OK           — Good location to tour the city, right by 2 freeways, lots of trees so satellite TV is a challenge, very busy place.

6/8…6/19/13…  Tiffin Campground Red Bay Alabama — Gravel side by side with E/W/S, it’s like camping in a large RV sales lot, Arrive on Saturdays for the best chance at a full hookup spot. They start packing in on Sunday.  Take the plant tour and get 1 night free. Have any warranty work done and price is cut in half.

6/19…6/24/13… Joe Wheeler State Park — Heavily treed, mainly 30amp some 50, septic and water, we stayed in loop C on the lake. Tennis, golf course, marina, more stuff than we thought there would be.
