“Very shady” for Galesburg East RV Park
The park has gravel or grass pads. It is open 4/1 to 11/1. It is a Good Sam park. Pool is small but clean. There is a shelter with a full kitchen for groups. Immaculate, spacious bathroom. Each shower has a door with a curtain separating the changing area from the shower. Lots of trees, which might make it a bit dicey in some of the sites but are really wonderful. Picnic tables at every site. You can ask for a fire bin if you want a campfire and they will deliver it to the site. Very friendly people.Date of Stay: May, 2010Rate Paid: $25.00
“Right on the ocean” for Camp Hatteras RV Resort & Campground
Just cross the dunes and you are on the ocean. There are 2 campgrounds, one on the ocean side and one on the sound. The sound side has good water access and, we are told, much nicer facilities. We stayed on the ocean side and everything was pretty much closed up. Water was pretty bad so we used bottled water. Concrete pads, no trees, close to each other.
The check-in people were pretty snippy and not very helpful on information about things to do in the area. It was pretty expensive.Date of Stay: November, 2007Rate Paid: $58.00
“Lovely location” for Canyon de Chelly NM
The park is right next to the canyon. Canyon tours can only be taken with Navajo tour guides, but it is easy to find them in town. The park has lots of trees. When we were then in September, there were only about 5 sites taken. In addition to the park info center right on the hill above, there is a restaurant serving Navajo food. We drove the canyon top; the road takes off right near the campground. And the campground is free!Date of Stay: September, 2008Rate Paid: $0.00
“Pretty dicey place” for Great River Road Campground
Tha park was flooded in 2008; half of the electrical connections are inoperable. Concrete pads and paved roads. Lots of tall trees so fully shaded in summer. Park is right on the Mississippi; you can watch barges go by from the river's edge. 18-hole disc gold course. Park is gated with a password so you need to call ahead (662-759-6762) to get in after 4 PM (at least in March). Restrooms are nice but poorly maintained. We assume the parks have fallen through the financial cracks. Rated 1 star because of electrical problems and poor maintenance.Date of Stay: March, 2010Rate Paid: $10.00
“Close to I10, too” for Pine Crest RV Park1 out of 4 people found this review helpful
This park is right next to New Orleans East RV Park. However, it is larger nad has a lot of permanent reisdents so it is more trailer parkish. The pads we tried were all concrete, but weren't level so we checked out the park next door and stayed there.Date of Stay: March, 2010Rate Paid: $
“Close to I10” for New Orleans East Kampground1 out of 1 people found this review helpful
There are 2 RV parks just off I10 at exit 263 in Slidell and they are pretty similar. I think which one you go to depends on whether you have a Good Sam membership or not. NO East has paved roads, but the sites are gravel with tiny islands of grass or mud in between. The turns are a bit tight and I wouldn't want to drive around here in a big rig. It also has a few cabins for rent with kitchenette and bath, bigger than the ones you see at KOA. The laundry is near the entrance and has 5 washers and 5 dryers. The bathhouse has 3 very nice showers with real doors and lots of hooks. It has murals on the walls and is very nice. Wifi was good. They do a free shuttle to New Orleans; the French Quarter is about 30 mi away.Date of Stay: March, 2010Rate Paid: $39.00
“City park with lots of space” for Lake End RV Campground0 out of 1 people found this review helpful
This large city park is right on Lake Palourde. Sites are scattered with lots of grass area between sets of sites. Sites 63 to 74 are on the levee overlooking the marina and are great for boat and people watching; sites 52 to 62 re just behind the lievee. Sites 43 to 51 are along a canal. Sites 108 to 131 overlook the lake as well. An additional 52 sites were added after the last bad storm, but they are right next to the road and there is a lot of road noise.
We are told it is very busy on weekends. You can stay for a month in Jan, Feb, & March. There are only 3 showers in each restroom (there is another 1 over in the tenting area). The showers are nicely tiled but there is no place to put your clothes.
Don't rely on your GPS to find it; ours said we had 7 more miles to go when we got to the park.Date of Stay: March, 2010Rate Paid: $28.00
“Right on the ocean” for Grand Isle State Park0 out of 2 people found this review helpful
The sites are all pull thrus, all on the other side of a manmade dune facing the Gulf of Mexico. The beach is being rebuilt by the Corps of Engineers and is officially closed but you can walk on it and fish from the pier and enjoy the ocean. Tbere isn't much tidal change (1' between high and low), and there isn't any shade (only recently planted palm trees), but it's lovely. Sites 4, 8 30, and 13 are particularly nice because you have a little space. Each site comes with a picnic table, a raised barbecue grill and a fire pit. It's a bit confusing to find since Hwy 1 continues left and you have to take Admiral Craik Drive; there is no sign indicating this. We didn't reserve ahead because of the time of the year, but I would recommend it starting in May because it is quite a trip out to the park and you don't want to get there and not be able to camp. We were given a 50% discount because we had a Golden Age pass!
The bathrooms are beautiful. Clean, tiled, double space, fiberglass shower stall. There is even a free washer and dryer. There are 4 showers in the west bathhouse. The east bathhouse is closed temporarily, but I assume there are another 4 showers there.Date of Stay: March, 2010Rate Paid: $9.00
“What a dump!” for Capri Court Mobile Home1 out of 2 people found this review helpful
This is mainly a trailer park but there are RV sites at the very end (I can't believe there are 50 sites, although I didn't count them.) Most sites are gravel, but some seem to be abandoned trailer pads. We are pretty narrow (less than 8') and it was scary going onto one of the pads. There ARE trees. Sites are either 30 amp or 50 amp, not both so you have to check each site to be sure. The only way to use the bathrooms and laundry is to put down a $25 deposit with the office. But the office closes at 5 PM and is also closed for lunch. We didn't feel comfortable using their water. It's a Good Sam park but I can't imagine where they got their rating.Date of Stay: March, 2010Rate Paid: $27.05
“'Old fashioned family camp'” for Poche's Fish-N-Camp2 out of 2 people found this review helpful
With 5 10-acre fishing ponds, this camp caters to fisherpeople. No license required. The ponds are stocked with bass, bream, catfish and something called sacalait. It is quite far off the beaten track. Roads are gravel and about half of the sites are now concrete pads. They circle one of the fishing ponds. While there are trees near sites 1 to 22 they are quite small and don't give much shade. No trees on the rest of the sites. Usual private RV park spacing. Small laundry. Clubhouse. The night we were there (Thursday) park residents were having a fish fry outside the clubhouse.Date of Stay: March, 2010Rate Paid: $30.00
