Dellanera RV Park, Galveston Island, TX

Dellanera is a beach front RV Park just west of the busy part of Galveston where the piers and attractions are and is run by the City. I think if I had originally had a site on the west end of the park rather than the east end, I would have been happier and stayedContinue reading “Dellanera RV Park, Galveston Island, TX”

Rusk KOA Holiday, Rusk, Texas

This is a KOA Holiday in a really nice area with all pull-thru sites with full hook ups. It was quite chilly while I was here with temperatures dipping down into the low 30s but I can imagine this is a popular spot during the summer. It’s quite expensive at about $49 a night. IContinue reading “Rusk KOA Holiday, Rusk, Texas”

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”

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”

Escapees Turkey Creek RV Village, Hollister, MO

Don’t let the Hollister address dissuade you as this RV Park is really only 3 minutes away from Branson Landing and historic downtown Branson. I like the fact that it’s across the bridge and not right in town yet so convenient to all the shows, shopping, and museums. If you aren’t an Escapees member, theContinue reading “Escapees Turkey Creek RV Village, Hollister, MO”
