Alsatian RV Resort, Castroville TX Campground Review

Alsatian RV Resort; Castroville, TX Campground Review

Alsatian RV Resort is in a great location for enjoying the numerous activities available around San Antonio and Texas Hill Country. Situated just 30 minutes west of San Antonio and about 90 minutes from the center of Texas Hill Country, this campground is a great option for a home base. We stayed at Alsatian RV Resort for three nights in May 2020. We were visiting friends who were also staying at the park and taking a break between mapping projects in Texas and Oklahoma.

Thousand Trails Colorado River

Thousand Trails Colorado River RV Park; Columbus, TX Campground Review

Thousand Trails Colorado River RV Park is very conveniently located just five miles off I-10 between Houston and San Antonio. This campground is a nice mix of amenities and natural areas and is a great spot to stop for a few days or even a bit longer. We stayed at Thousand Trails Colorado River RV Park for four nights in January 2020. We were on a cross-country trip from Florida to Nevada and picked this location to rest for a few days before continuing west. We arrived on a Saturday, and unfortunately all the full hookup sites were occupied and we ended up with a water/electric site. Fortunately, we were only staying a few days, so after dumping our tanks we settled into site D4.

Door County Jellystone Park

Door County Jellystone Park; Sturgeon Bay, WI Campground Review

Door County Jellystone Park in Door County Wisconsin is a wonderful park very conveniently located in Sturgeon Bay WI. It makes a great base of operations for Door County explorations and has many amenities to keep you entertained while you’re at the park. We had the added benefit of recent upgrades and renovations as 2019 was the the 50th anniversary of this first ever Jellystone Park.

Lake Lanier Duckett Mill

Lake Lanier Duckett Mill Campground, Army Corps of Engineers; Gainesville, GA Campground Review

Lake Lanier is a beautiful lake in north Georgia with one of our favorite campgrounds so far – Lake Lanier Duckett Mill ! The campground is operated by the Army Corps of Engineers, located in north Georgia outside Gainesville, and is right on the shores of Lake Lanier. We will definitely be returning to this campground as it’s only a 30 minute drive from our younger son’s home. We were here for two different stays — one in early May and one in early June of 2019 and were very pleased both times.

Natchez Trace Wilderness Preserve

Natchez Trace Wilderness Preserve; Hohenwald, TN – Thousand Trails – Campground Review

We’re doing another review of a Thousand Trails campground due to the unique features and experience at this RV park. We had planned to be at Natchez Trace Wilderness Preserve for the last two weeks of May but only stayed one night. While this park has many things going for it, there was one aspect that was a total deal breaker for us. First, let’s review the basics.

Carolina Landing Campground Review

Carolina Landing RV Resort; Fair Play, SC – Thousand Trails – Campground Review

We stayed at Carolina Landing RV Resort for ten days in early May. We were in the Carolinas area for business reasons and also were able to visit with our sons while we were in the region. We don’t do full reviews on every Thousand Trails RV park we stay in because they’re fairly consistent in experience. However, this one is different enough from the norm that we thought it would be good to share our experience.

pecan haven rv campground

Pecan Haven RV Campground; Caldwell, TX Campground Review

Pecan Haven RV Campground is an excellent alternative to the plethora of tailgating campgrounds around College Station. We needed to be in the Bryan-College Station area for 3 weeks for business and were grateful to find this campground.  Most campgrounds in the vicinity are geared for Texas A&M tailgaters and are basically just parking lots with hook ups — which is fine if you’re having a tailgate party and just in town for a night or two.  However, with staying for three weeks, we were looking for a place that was more cozy.

Ole Towne Cotton Gin

Ole Towne Cotton Gin; Quanah, TX Campground Review

Ole Towne Cotton Gin is a great little campground.  It’s an independent campground located between Wichita Falls and Amarillo.  It’s set on the site of an old historic cotton gin with much of the building and equipment restored and on display.  We stayed here for just a couple of days on our way to NomadFEST.   The best thing about this campground is it’s where we met new friends who were also going to NomadFEST — Phil and Stacy Farley of You, Me and the RV; and Chris and Donna Clark of Runaway with the Clarks.
