Texarkana KOA, Texarkana, Texas

I wasn’t quite sure when I checked in that I would like it because my site was right by the front entrance alongside a highway frontage road. Plus, when I checked in, I was the only RV for 3 rows until you get to the longer term people. But it turned out ok and IContinue reading “Texarkana KOA, Texarkana, Texas”

Hot Springs National Park KOA, Hot Springs, Arkansas

I booked 4 days at this KOA so that we could spend some time exploring the national park and sightseeing. Unfortunately, the weather wasn’t really cooperative for hiking in the woods and it was too foggy to get good photos from the mountain top but it was still an interesting place. I paid for aContinue reading “Hot Springs National Park KOA, Hot Springs, Arkansas”

Clinton RV Park, Clinton, Arkansas

Clinton RV Park This is not a traveler’s RV park but pleasant for two days as I passed through. It’s on Highway 65 south between Branson, Missouri and Little Rock, Arkansas. When I checked in, the lady at the counter was very personable and chatty. However, she didn’t give me a map or say whereContinue reading “Clinton RV Park, Clinton, Arkansas”

Rustic Meadows RV Park, Strafford, MO — I do not recommend

Are you treated differently when the management knows that you write reviews? You betcha. I booked this campground for 3 days in between stops and was so disappointed, I called the office the morning of the second day and asked for a refund for the third day, giving them more than 24 hours notice. TheyContinue reading “Rustic Meadows RV Park, Strafford, MO — I do not recommend”

RV Express RV Park, Marshfield, Missouri

RV Express was not on my radar as a place to stay but following an accident and a need for a new mirror, I knew I would have to drive to the nearest larger town from where I was. I chose Springfield, Missouri. It was a holiday weekend so RV Express was the only parkContinue reading “RV Express RV Park, Marshfield, Missouri”

Ray Behrens Recreation Area, Mark Twain Lake, Missouri

Ray Behrens campground is one of three or four recreational areas at COE’s Mark Twain Lake.  Available sites include everything from primitive camping to full hooks ups and some sites are reservable while the rest are first come-first serve. Even though it’s already October, practically all the sites that I could see were filled onContinue reading “Ray Behrens Recreation Area, Mark Twain Lake, Missouri”

Nauvoo State Park and Historic Site, Nauvoo, Illinois

Nauvoo is a place of historical significance and the state park is almost within walking distance of the historic village and visitor’s center. The LDS Church (Mormons) purchased and built up this town in the 1840s, after being kicked out of Missouri and before they were run out 15 years later, eventually settling in SaltContinue reading “Nauvoo State Park and Historic Site, Nauvoo, Illinois”

Elk Rock State Park, Knoxville, Iowa

It’s almost the off season, end of September, and so the park does have a little different atmosphere, fall leaves, some rain, and empty during the week and almost full on the weekend. This large state park has a “regular” or non-equestrian campground area and an equestrian area. Elk Rock State Park is on RedContinue reading “Elk Rock State Park, Knoxville, Iowa”
