"Friendly Family Owned Park"

Weimar, Texas is probably not on your destinations list for Texas this summer, but if you need a place to spend a night or two, it will look pretty good as you roll down Interstate 10. Whispering Oaks is a friendly park with spacious,... Read more

"New Park, with Great access to Galveston"

We were some of the first to stay at Stella Mare last fall, and to be honest, we would do better to come back and look at again. Much was under construction when we stayed, but we had an event to attend, and Galveston was invaded by 500,000... Read more

"Nothing fancy, but close to the beach"

Mustang Island State Park is close to the beach. That sums up the reasons to stay here. It is really a large parking lot with 48 back-in water-electric spaces that are able to accommodate any size rig. We parked our fifth-wheel, unhooked, and... Read more

"We'll come back after the remodel is done"

One of the disadvantages of traveling during off-peak season is that many parks and facilities are trying to complete expansion and remodeling before the peak tourist season. Same here. We stayed in a newer section of the park, and while all the... Read more

"Beautiful park in the heart of Cajun Country"

I wish we had more time to spend in this area. The park itself was lush and green, even in the middle of February. The campsites are huge - ours was 75 feet long, and at least 25 feet wide. If you can drive it in, you can park it here. The sites... Read more

"Comfortable sites, close to Hot Springs"

Hot Springs KOA is carved out of a hillside spot near town. It's close enough for easy access to Hot Springs National Park and the town of Hot Springs - they're really all one thing - but far enough out that traffic isn't bad, and noise is... Read more

"A place to park with hookups"

We never saw anyone who worked for the park, and we seemed to be one of only a couple of people who weren't full-timers. I think this park is fairly new, though. It may improve as time passes and the summer travel season gets underway. There... Read more

"This is a jewel"

We booked our stay at Petit Jean with no prior information about the park, but when we arrived, we were blown away by the beauty of the park. Our site faced the lake, and our stay was quiet, peaceful, and definitely one of the best of 2016. The... Read more

"Good basic stopover"

We spent a few days here so I could get some work done, and my wife could head to Kansas City for a few days on family business. The sites are level pull-throughs, and for the most part, quiet and well-run. If you're interested in the Branson... Read more

"Trout Fishing, Trails, and Treks"

Trout Season starts in Missouri on March 1, and most of the spaces in Bennett Spring State Park are filled with excited anglers. After the opening rush subsides a bit, the real camping season gets going in earnest on April 15, when all the... Read more

Tug's Journal: Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park

After three and a half months at Mancos State Park, we finally had to maneuver the rig out of our comfy, tree-shaded spot and head south. Maneuver isn't the right word. Trailer tango works better. Fir...
