Wordy Explorers RV Campground Ratings

Upon purchasing our RV, we created a spreadsheet to keep a list of everywhere we camped. We personally use the spreadsheet in several ways:

  • to keep track of how many nights we spend in our RV (to confirm that our RV purchase was a good decision);
  • to calculate how much in total we spend on camping fees as well as, on average, what we spend in nightly campground fees (for budget purposes); and
  • to remember which campgrounds we most like and would consider returning to, and which we would prefer to stay away from.

Overview of Campground Ratings

Since July 13, 2017 we've logged every night that we've stayed in "RV There Yet?". We logged our stay if we just parked the RV somewhere overnight so that we could sleep in it, if we boon-docked or if we camped in an actual campground. Each of these 40+ locations are now all on our list.

In addition to the dates we stayed, the total price we paid and a rating (see Rating Descriptions and color coding beneath spreadsheet), we've included our comments such as ease of reserving, ease of parking, available utilities, campsite features and park services. We even save comments on our cell phone coverage and broadcast television reception.

We originally made our spreadsheet and ratings available to any of our readers who may have an interest in August 2018. Our hope is that the information will help others in search of campgrounds as well. Almost three months later, our list has nearly doubled in size following our trip through parts of the southwest United States.

The quickest and easiest way to access the list in the future is to visit our home page (http://arewethere- From there, select the icon titled "RV There Yet?". From the "RV Camping" page, select the "Campground Ratings" icon which will take you to this entry which contains the most up to date list as well as a link at the top of the article. If we have published a more in depth review of the campground, you'll also find a link to the comprehensive review with pictures in the list.
