In this edition of our campground review series we will be reviewing Cummins Ferry RV Resort located in Salvisa, Kentucky.
This was our first visit to Cummins Ferry and it was one of those places that we hoped would live up to what we saw in the photos while we were researching places to visit. Unfortunately, it is all too common for amazing photos to be posted online that are not always representative of the reality on the ground when you arrive for your stay. And when you are booking for an entire month arriving at some RV resorts and campgrounds can be very stressful because you are not always sure of what you are getting into until you get there and get settled.
To say we were relieved when we came around the bend and saw the resort for the first time, after driving down a long and narrow road towards an uncertain destination, would be an understatement.

We are back with another edition of our campground review series. In this edition we will be reviewing Wrights Orchard Station Campground located in Duncansville, Pennsylvania.
This was our second visit to Wrights Orchard Station Campground as we stayed there a little over two years ago when we took our son to school for his freshman year. Since that visit not much has changed and as far as we are concerned that is a good thing.
Wrights Orchard Station Campground is a small no frills family owned campground located just off interstate 99 and borders the town of Altoona, PA. It is open seasonally from May until the end of October and is in a great location as you can easily drive into town or get on the interstate and go in any direction for hiking, fishing, historical sites or just for some outdoor fun. Just plan on using your vehicle, uber or public transportation as this is an older town and there are zero sidewalks along the streets for walking and traffic moves fast.

Welcome to another edition of our campground review series. In this edition we will be reviewing Sun Outdoors Orange Beach located in Orange Beach, Alabama.
Sun Outdoors Orange Beach is located southeast of Mobile, AL along the gulf coast. We opted to take interstate 10 to state route 59 through Foley, AL instead of paying to go over the toll bridge. The bridge isn’t expensive to take and will save you about 15 minutes. We are in no hurry these days and we are always looking to save a couple of bucks where we can, so the longer route was fine with us.

Welcome to another edition of our campground review series. In this edition we will be reviewing Jetstream RV Resort at NASA located in Webster, Texas.
This was our second visit to Jetstream and we stayed at the resort for 2 months after leaving our lovely spot in Sedona, AZ. Since our last visit here almost 2 years ago, and after we made our new reservation, the resort went through a management change when it was acquired by Sun Outdoors. We were a little concerned that it wouldn’t be the same. From what we saw, most of the changes being made were for the good.

Welcome to another edition of our campground review series. In this edition we will be reviewing Distant Drums RV Resort in Camp Verde, Arizona.
This was our first ever visit to Distant Drums and we stayed at the resort for 3 months after leaving Utah. The resort came highly recommended in several of the RV groups and it didn’t disappoint.
Distant Drums is located on the North side of Camp Verde right off of Interstate 17. The location is great because you are centrally located between Sedona and Cottonwood/Jerome and you can enjoy the entire area without living in the traffic that comes with these great places.

(Please note that this campground has been sold and is no longer a KOA as of 12/2021)
Welcome back to another edition of our campground review series. In this edition we will be reviewing one of our longtime favorite campgrounds in Utah, The Cedar City KOA.
Before we start just a disclaimer. This review is going to be a little different than previous reviews as this is a campground we worked at this past Summer and have been invited to work at again next Summer/Fall. Additionally, we have been staying at this campground for almost ten years now and have become friends with the new owners, so we are probably a little bias. None of this however will change our opinion of the campground itself and we are not saying anything in our review that we haven’t already expressed to the owners personally. They are great people and have made vast improvements to the campground with big plans still to come.

In the second installment of our campground review series we will be discussing Las Vegas RV Resort, not to be confused with Las Vegas Motorcoach Resort.
This was the first time we stayed at Las Vegas RV Resort and we decided to give it a shot based on some recommendations and the fact it is a 10/10/10 resort on Good Sam. Additionally, the price was within our budget which is always a good thing and it is an 18 and older resort.
One concern we had prior to booking our stay is that the surrounding location is not in the best area of Vegas, but there isn’t really a great area of Vegas to park your RV these days so you have to give a little to get a little.
