Stayed 1 night @ Dessert View RV; very comfortable park, gravel pads, small concrete patio, with typical full services. Very friendly host who meets incoming coaches @ entrance, escorts 'em to site, then another host checks you in at your site. Very convenient & the RV park operator doesn't have to maintain an office. Short drive from I-40, and little traffic noise from freeway. Each site is bordered by oleander bushes, providing considerable privacy. Two of 3 Interior roads are gravel, other is concrete. Park reportedly has numerous activities during the winter months, and serves as destination for snowbirds. Fee included tax.
Stayed @ Black Bart RV 1 night. Park is old, all gravel/dirt pads, small concrete patios (many with multiple cracks) , no wi-fi, no cable, lots of trees, but able to get satellite @ our site. Redeeming value is the Black Bart restaurant with a musical revue, which has a very enjoyable musical revue show provided by the singing waitstaff. Reservations generally required because they have bus loads of visiting tour buses (at least the night we attended).
Shady Acres is one of 2 RV sites in Green River (not counting the State/County parks). This is an old park which has hard surface interior roads and ancient, but serviceable hard-surface RV pads with weed & dirt patios (given that this is in the desert, it may be understandable, albeit, unattractive). Park has a playground with swings and basketball playing area. Park has some shaded spaces, but others where roof-top satellite can be used. There was what appeared to be a nice laundry facility (although I didn't use it). Best part of park is the 2 fenced dog runs, completely covered with pea gravel and containing some dog agility equipment. Also has a near-by coin-operated RV-wash, but did not try that. Overall, an adequate stop-over place, but not a resort.
Large park, 4 different pricing levels for sites. We stayed in “Deluxe” ($51.41 w tax) which had level cement pad, small cement patio, and very nice grassy area. Very nice hard surface interior roads, making parking very easy. Had full service hook-ups. Small dirt dog run inside park, but has much larger dirt dog park outside fenced perimeter (which requires getting a key to easily access). Park appeared to have many other amenities which we did not use on this 1-night stop-over. Overall, a very comfortable park.
Stayed 1 night @ Country View RV Park, which was a very pleasant experience. Camp itself is flat, very long pull-thru for big-rigs, gravel sites w grass patios, picnic tables, full services. Have small fenced dog run near office. Owners/managers couple very helpful with local information, were very accommodating, and were key to a very pleasant experience. Located ~ ½ mile off I-80 across the Interstate from the small town of Ogallala. Ogallala has ample restaurants & the Ogallala lake is located about 8 miles north of town and is a popular recreational area. Will definitely arrange to stop here when traveling this route again.
This park bills itself as closest RV park to historic Philadelphia, and it may well be; travel time to Philly is 20-30 minutes, depending on traffic. Park has full service sites, including cable & wi-fi; all have gravel or grass pads & patios, although a few concrete patios. RV sites are somewhat close together, resulting in a very cozy experience with your neighbors. Park appears to have about 2/3 long-term or permanent residents, with remaining 1/3 transient, although the transient campers seem to be located in their own area of park. Interior gravel roads well maintained. Has a small pond/lake in back of park with an assortment of geese & ducks. Spacious unfenced dog run area. Staff friendly & helpful. Would stay again.
Lake Fairfax Park is a county park that provides ONLY 50 amp electric, no water or sewer (although has dump station w potable water. They take reservations and can easily accommodate big rigs. Nightly rate for non-county resident seniors = $40. Sites are very spacious, level with gravel pads & patios, some trees (although able to access DirecTV w roof satellite antennae). This appears to be one of the few RV parks in area that can accommodate big rigs. Overall, quite a lovely & comfortable park, even w/o full service. Has numerous nearby hiking trails plus picturesque lake; skate board park and soccer fields nearby.
Fiesta Grove RV “resort,” 8615 Bayshore Rd, Palmetto, Fl. This is an old RV park, about ¾ of sites are permanent residences (manufactured homes or permanently located RV's) for snowbirds and a few year-round residents. Most sites have hard-surface asphalt pads with small patios of varying sizes; some sites are all grass. Some sites are not level, resulting in front tires off the ground. Park has unusually large pool, meeting room, shuffle board, & the usual amenities associated with long-term winter residents. Park is one of 3 which are pretty much adjacent to each other on Bayshore Rd, all appear to be about same vintage and condition. Trains rumble down track adjacent to the park 1 or 2 times per days. Convenient location mid-way location for activities between Sarasota & St. Petersburg/Tampa. Rate: $35.
Lake Hickory RV Park is a fairly large park, situated on a man-made lake created in 1929 by damming up the near-by river. Rather hilly park, but most of transient sites are very level. Most sites are permanent or very long-term sites, some apparently used as summer cabins. Emphasis on water sports and activities. Full service except cable, but air antenna reception readily available if trees block roof satellite antenna. Spacious gravel sites & patios; quiet and peaceful during our stay.
