We plan to continue updating this page with all of our stays, along with our comments and costs both for ourselves and anyone else looking for ideas/places!

Most current on top:

Candy Hill RV Resort

Date: May 7th-21st, 2022
Location:  Winchester, VA
Site #D6
Cost:  $65.00/night – 50 amp full hookup

Closest campground for spending time with local family. Some highway noise, but nice place, great camp store and we had the BEST site in the place! This will be a yearly stay for us!

Fort Chiswell RV Park

Date: May 6th, 2022
Location:  Fort Chiswell, VA
Cost:  $50.00/night – 50 amp full hookup

Great overnight spot close to highway exit, without highway noise! The cows moo-ing all evening were entertaining – until a tornado warning evacuated us the campground brick restrooms for a while!

Forest Lake RV Resort

Date: April 24th – May 6th, 2022
Location:  Advance, NC
Cost:  Free with our Thousand Trails membership – 50 amp full hookup

Good location for working our way towards Virginia from Florida. Pretty campground, very rolly/hilly, but we got our rig through. Fairly quiet and lots of trees. (Lawn was mowed the day after picture was taken)

The Oaks At Point South

Date: April 10th-24th, 2022
Location:  Yemassee, SC
Cost:  Free with our Thousand Trails membership – 50 amp full hookup
Nice campground, but probably the tightest site we stayed in to date – long, but narrow. Although good locale for site seeing Savannah, GA, or coastal SC, we were overrun with caterpillars – hopefully that’s just a seasonal problem! Not a horrible place, but the combination of issues made it not one of our favorites.

Georgia Peach World Farm – Harvest Host

Date: April 9th, 2022
Location:  Townsend, GA
Cost: Free with Harvest Host Membership – No hookups / Generators allowed

Cute overnight stop and picked up some yummy fudge and jelly!

Suwannee Rendevous RV Resort

Date: March 22nd – April 9th, 2022
Location:  Mayo, FL
Site #171
Cost: $275/week – 50 amp full hookup

Stumbled across this slightly older, charming campground on a YouTube video – and SO glad we did! Without a doubt, the friendliest people stay here! That plus more activities than you can keep up with (Bingo, cards, etc.) that we really got more of a kick out of than we expected! Loved it so much that it will now be our home for the months of March and April for as long as we keep reserving the most awesome site – #117! And for only $580/month!

Jasmine Breeze RV Park (No Photo)

Date: February 6th – March 13th, 2022
Location:  Old Town, FL
Cost:  $200/week – 50 amp full hookup

Desperate to find a place with sites big enough and for a reasonable price for a longer-term stay, this was a perfect selection! Two issues made it a place we probably won’t return to #1 – extremely remote, and more importantly, #2 – we were eaten alive by no-see-ums and pretty much forced to stay inside our RV!

TC Clerbrook Golf & RV Resort (No Photo)

Date: January 30th – February 5th, 2022
Location:  Clermont, FL
Cost:  Free with our Thousand Trails membership – 50 amp full hookup

Although highly rated by many, this was one of our worst arrivals/stays – and the only park so far that we left early. Our RV size was really the problem – they really didn’t have sites large enough for us, but they should have just told us that and not accepted our reservation. Will not return.

TT Orlando RV Resort

Date: January 2nd-16th and April 19th-27th, 2022
Location:  Clermont, FL
Site #2 on Acara – and then Site #150 Triggerfish (above photo)
Cost:  Free with our Thousand Trails membership – 50 amp full hookup

Wow! The prize jewel of the Thousand Trails system – and for good reason! Well run, meticulously kept campground with great sites! Great area with lots to do as well! The only downfall is overloaded cell towers providing marginal internet access.

TT Peace River RV Resort

Date: December 14th – January 2nd and January 16th-30th, 2022
Location:  Wauchula, FL
Site: P51
Cost:  Free with our Thousand Trails membership – 30 amp hookup / no sewer, but weekly honey wagon provided. (Our choice – they have Full hookup sites, but this site was much bigger!)

Very nice, active campground. Loved our site (P51) and hope to get the same one in the future! Lots of planned activities, food trucks, etc. Great vibe. (The second stay was the complete opposite. Crappy site, cranky campers, and way too many aggressive dogs!)

Lake City Campground

Date: December 12th-13th, 2021
Location:  Lake City, FL
Cost:  $38.00/night – Full hookups

Pull thru site for 2 nights while we took care of some final DMV tasks. Nice site – lots of acorns dropping on roof. Not a very prosperous neighborhood.

A Cozy Corner RV Resort

Date: November 28th – December 11th, 2021
Location:  Fort Walton, FL
Cost:  $65.00/night – Full hookups

Lovely, small, private resort convenient to Destin and area attractions. Nice paved sites. On a very noisy road, but enjoyable stay.

TT Lake Conroe RV Park

Date: November 14th-27th, 2021
Location:  Willis, TX
Cost:  Free with our Thousand Trails membership – Full hookups

Beautiful lake just north of Houston. Busy, fairly noisy park, but lots of amenities nearby and friendly people 🙂

TT Medina Lake RV Resort

Date: October 31st – November 13th, 2021
Location:  Lakehills, TX
Cost:  Free with our Thousand Trails membership – Full hookups

Beautiful, remote property in the Hill Country of western Texas. Interior roads need some work, lake level was way down and sites weren’t very level – but the presence of the plentiful, friendly deer made up for all of that!

Fort Stockton RV Park

Date: October 30th, 2021
Location:  Fort Stockton, TX
Cost:  $35/night – Full hookups

Nice campground right off highway. Has it’s own restaurant, but we didn’t have time to try it out. Great place for a night or two enroute.

Roswell, NM Walmart

Date: October 29th, 2021
Location:  Roswell, NM
Cost:  FREE! No hookups

Quick overnight stay and shopping trip at Walmart in Roswell, NM.

Route 66 RV Park & Casino

Date: October 24th – 29th 2021
Location:  Alburquerque, NM
Cost:  $60/night – Full hookups

Very nice RV Resort. Long sites – wild horses – beautiful weather and lots to do in Alburquerque (Sandia Peak Tramway was amazing!) made this a nice week-long stay! Oh, and the sunsets…………


Date: October 23rd 2021
Location:  Gallup, NM
Cost:  $30/night – Full hookups

Nice enough place for an overnight stop right off I40. It was our first experience with a “buddy site” and shared post – but wasn’t horrible. Sites were very tight next to each other though – and it was very windy when we were there. Wonderful gift shop with unique items. No picture of our site.

Thousand Trails Verde Valley

Date:  October 3rd – 23rd 2021
Location:  Cottonwood, AZ
Site #K10
Cost:  $10/night – Full hookups with our Thousand Trails membership

WOW! Largest campsite and best view off the back deck for sure! Todd’s favorite place so far! Lots to visit in the area – Old Town Cottonwood, Sedona, Jerome & Prescott – and fun motorcycle riding! We will definitely be back!

Moab Rim Campground

Date:  September 28th – October 3rd, 2021
Location:  Moab, UT
Cost:  $80/night – Full hookups

Squeezed this stop in for a few days in order to visit Arches National Park – which was, of course, gorgeous! The campground was clean and people were friendly – sites were a little on the tight side (not horrible), but that’s to be expected near a major attraction. We were definitely the odd men out with our Harleys – this is MAJOR ATV territory! Picture is of our neighbors’ transit setup!

Grand Junction KOA Holiday

Date:  September 11th-28th, 2021
Location:  Grand Junction, CO
Cost:  $55/night – Full hookups

Without a doubt the FRIENDLIEST campground we’ve stayed at so far!  From the employees to the other campers, and even the dogs – everyone was ready to chat and make new friends!  I didn’t get a picture of our site, but the picture above was our neighbor’s car, who then invited us to a car show, which we went to!  Fun!  Epic motorcycle roads in the area, but if that was the main focus I would stay a little further south to avoid 1.5 hours on Hwy 50 each way to the best roads.  Of course, my daughter coming to stay with us for a few days made it an even more awesome stay!

Uinta Lanes

Date:  September 6th-10th, 2021
Location:  Evanston, WY
Cost:  Fantastic food for 4 nights through Harvest Hosts

This beautiful view off our back deck was compliments of……..a bowling alley! Nice parking spot away from the building, wonderful employees and limited menu but GREAT food!

YNot Winery

Date:  September 5th, 2021
Location:  Glenns Ferry, ID
Cost:  Had a delicious dinner here as Harvest Hosts

Quick overnighter enroute from Oregon to Colorado.  Very friendly owners/workers!  Plenty of parking, wine and food choices!

Echo Ridge Winery

Date:  September 4th, 2021
Location:  Echo, OR
Cost:  Had some appetizers and drinks here as Harvest Hosts

Quick overnighter enroute from Oregon to Colorado.  Owner was extremely accommodating! Very dog friendly location as well!

Whalers Rest Campground

Date:  August 22nd – September 4th, 2021
Location:  Salem, OR – Site #
Cost:  Free to us with our Thousand Trails Membership – Full hookups

Very wooded, older campground – kept in great shape. More than a little tight for our 46′ fifth wheel. Friendly and helpful staff. Directly across the street (Hwy 101) from the Pacific Ocean!

Antique Powerland Museum

Date:  August 21st, 2021
Location:  Salem, OR
Cost:  Free with small donation to museum through Harvest Hosts

Cool museum / grounds! They’ve recreated an entire little old town on the property, with many individual museums (motorcycle, tractor, etc). Lots of open area to park for the night!

Crescent Bar RV Park

Date:  August 9th-21st, 2021
Location:  Quincy, WA – Site #
Cost:  Free to us with our Thousand Trails Membership – Full hookups

Very nice campground on the Columbia River. Nice path for walking by the river – and, if you’re lucky, you’ll get to see F15 fighter jets run thu the canyon! Nice side trip to Reindeer Farm and the old town of Leavenworth. Temps were over 100, and forest fires blocked the distant views most of the time we were there. Nice stay – but as close to Todd’s brother-in-law as we had hoped. Stay also dampened by me not feeling well the last few days….

Blackwell Island RV Park

Date:  August 7th-8th, 2021
Location:  Cour d’Alene, ID – Site #161
Cost:  $70/night (tax incl) – Full hookups

Beautiful campground nestled in the shores of Lake Cour d’Alene!  Short drive to downtown and an easy walk to the riverfront.  Nicest weather we’ve had so far – low 70’s with a wonderful breeze!  Not the friendliest people in the area/town.

Diamond S RV Park

Date:  July 25th-August 7th, 2021
Location:  Ronan, MT – Site #204
Cost:  $70.10/night (tax incl) – Full hookups

Nice campground with very nice owners! Was a little further south from Glacier than I planned (1.5 hours), but worked out okay! We would stay here again and would want the same site.

Date:  July 24th, 2021
Location:  Walmart – Butte, MT
Cost:  Free

Just a place to sleep for the night. Taco Bell and Arbys within walking distance. Slept fine and left early the next morning 🙂

Rush-No-More 2021Rush-No-More RV Park

Date:  July 11th-July 23rd, 2021
Location:  Sturgis, SD – Site #201
Cost:  $48.91 (tax incl) – Full hookups

Very quiet, pretty campground.  Had deer stroll by on occasion and had guests come stay for a weekend to ride the area roads.  They used the bathhouse and showers and were very happy with them.  Would want this exact site if we come again.

Pioneer Auto Museum

Date:  July 10th, 2021
Location:  Murdo, SD
Cost:  Free with Harvest Host Membership – No hookups

Snagged the end spot of their large gravel parking lot and had lots of privacy!  We toured the very large display of vintage cars and memorabilia in the morning and had breakfast from their cafe before hitting the road!  Interesting stop!

Eisma Farm

Date:  June 27th-July 10th, 2021
Location:  Maurice, IA
Cost:  Free – Family!

Wonderful stay with family I hadn’t seen it too long (great part about this journey!), and they spoiled us rotten!  Between food, fuel and anything else we needed it was more than we ever expected!

I-80 Worlds Largest Truck Stop

Date:  June 25th, 2021
Location:  Walcott, IA
Cost:  Free – No Hookups

Our first parking lot overnighter!  Not all bad – learned how soundproof our rig really is!  Must be sure to park in an end spot or can’t get the stairs down!

Pine Country Campground

Date:  June 12th-June 24th, 2021
Location:  Belvidere, IL – Site #PTT4 & #PD11
Cost:  Free with Thousand Trails Membership – Full Hookup

Closest Thousand Trails to Illinois friends and family. Extremely accomodating – saved us when Blackhawk canceled our reservation.  Nice campground.

Sycamore RV Resort

Date:  May 31st-June 12th, 2021
Location:  Sycamore, IL – Site #84
Cost:  $42.50/night – Preferred – Full Hookup

Hidden gem that we used as a home base while emptying our storage unit and wrapping up details from selling the house.  Nice place.

Sleepy Creek Vineyards

Date:  May 30th, 2021
Location:  Fairmount, IL
Cost:  Free with Harvest Host Membership – No hookups

Another tricky driveway, but on a beautiful piece of land!  Put our back deck out for the first time and enjoyed the view!  Large gravel lot.

Today’s Harvest

Date:  May 29th, 2021
Location:  New Paris, OH
Cost:  Free with Harvest Host Membership – No hookups

Large, quaint family farm store with awesome donuts, ice cream and knick-knacks!  Large gravel lot for overnight parking.  Yummy stuff and a quiet night!


Date:  May 28th, 2021
Location:  Eaton, OH
Cost:  Free with Boondockers Welcome Membership – $10 for 30 amp hookup

RV had come in sooner than expected – a holiday weekend – and we couldn’t find reservations ANYWHERE!  Drove straight from picking up the RV to our first Harvest Host stop – Camp Rocky Creek!

Challenging driveway for a rig our size, but awesome hosts that provided water, electricity and homemade cookies!
