The fee structure for this campground is typical for all of the national parks that have at least electrical service. Dry (unserviced) cost $27.40. Electric only cost $32.30. FHU cost $38.20 and reservations costing $11. All campgrounds had a dump station(s) with fresh water available. The national park pass cost $67.70 per person and is good for all of the National Parks and some of the National museums. Otherwise, it would cost $8 per person per day to camp within the National Parks. Camp fires cost $8.50 per day with unlimited wood. Bring an axe – wood needs to be split more. There is no Wi-Fi within any of the parks. The utilities in this park have recently been upgraded and are located in middle side of the site. Very few of the sites are level. Many of the interior roads are narrow and are one way, but there are no signs indicating the direction. Seems like an accident waiting to happen. The interior roads are pot holed. There is a short steep uphill climb to get to the entrance to this park. Loop E has electric only. This loop would accommodate a 5th wheel 25 feet or shorter. We opted to stay at the FHU loop which was bigger and easier to get into. There were water spigots near the bathrooms within the loops that only had electricity. The bathrooms were clean and contained 3 showers. During our stay there appeared to be very little maintenance being done. There were no park hosts, perhaps this changes when the park officially opens. Reservations for this park started on Friday, June 14 and we understand that the campground was full. We would probably stay at this campground if we were in the area. However, we would go off season.
Benton RV Park is a good campground to visit Fort Benton. This campground has a mixture of back-ins and pull-thrus. Most of the pull-thrus can accommodate large rigs including the tow. The water and electrical box is at the back of the site. The sewer is on the middle side of the site. The electrical box contains 20/30/50 amp service. The voltage was good. Most of the sites were fairly level. Wi-Fi was available but we did not use it. Verizon cell phone and air card worked well. The interior roads and sites were on packed gravel. It rained for several days but the roads were not too muddy. There were two bathrooms with showers. Surprisingly, there were no locks on these doors. There were also two washers ($1.00) and two dryers ($0.25 for ten minutes). The bottom dryer was not very hot. It was very quiet at night (except for the Montana winds). The price per night was at a PA rate. We would come back to this park if we were in the area.
This campground is in a great location to visit Cody. It is in walking distance to the Buffalo Bill Cody Museum and to a couple of good restaurants. We were there off-season so it was less crowded. With over 150 campsites, I can image how crowded this park will be in season. The interior roads and sites were mostly on packed gravel. Some of the electrical utilities were in the back and some were in the middle. There is a combination of back-in and pull-through sites. This park is big rig friendly. The electrical voltage was very strong. Verizon air card and cell phone worked well. There is free Wi-Fi available, but we did not use it. The bathrooms were very clean but a little out-dated. The price reflexes off season rates. In season the rates range between $40 - $50. We would come back here if we were in the area.
This park is OK for one night. Most of the sites are pull-throughs and are long enough so you will not have to unhitch. All of the utilities (water, sewer and electricity) are in the middle of the site. Most of the pedestals have 20/30/50 amp service. The electrical voltage was good. The sites are fairly level, but we had to unhitch in order to get the rig leveled front to back. The bathrooms are clean and there are 4 washers ($1.25) and 4 dryers ($0.25 per 10 minutes). Verizon air card did not work at this campground. However the camps Wi-Fi was free and the reception was good. Verizon cell phone did work. The price reflects the Passport America rate. I would question whether this campground is worth the full rate of $38 plus 7% tax. Having said that, this seems to be the going rate in this part of area. If we had to pay full price we would probably look for alternatives.
In my opinion, this was probably the best of the three RV Parks within Thermopolis. The interior roads and sites are on packed gravel. Go slow because the roads are pot-holed. All of the utilities are at the back of the sites. You will probably need a long sewer and water hose to reach the utilities. This park is not big rig friendly. The sites are fairly long but the interior roads are sharp and a little narrow. The electrical voltage was good. Verizon air card and cell phone worked well in this park. There is Wi-Fi available but we did not use it. The bathroom and showers were clean. There are a number of long term residents in this park but their sites are tidy. There is little road noise at night but you can hear the trains in the distance. We would come back if we were in the area.
This is an interesting campground to write about. We have been here about 4 years ago and on the surface it looks like this campground has gone down hill. The interior roads have large potholes and need another layer of gravel and asphalt. The sites are on gravel, but they also need more gravel. The overall appearance does not look good but the office, laundry room and bathrooms are very clean. The bathroom fixtures have been updated but it still looks old. There are 4 washers ($1.75) and 4 dryers ($1.75 – don’t know the number of minutes). The office has a surprising number of items that an RVer would want such as sewer hoses, 50 to 30 amp plugs, etc. You have the option of having a site with full hookup, water and electric, electric only, or dry camping. In addition you also have the option with the full hookup to have cable or not. The voltage was good. Verizon air card worked well along with our Verizon cell phone. WiFi is also available but we did not use it. Pull-thrus and back-in sites are available. There was some freeway and train noise. There are a large number of long term residents in this park. Since the sites are fairly tight it is probably hard to keep their sites tidy. We would probably come back here if were in the area.
There are about 45 sites within this state park. It is located right next to I-40. We can not judge how noisy the road would be because all of our windows were closed due to the weather. The park officially opened a couple of days ago and there were only 3 other rigs in the park. The interior roads and sites were on packed gravel. Each site had 50/30/20 amp service. Water was available at the dump station or at hydrants located throughout the park. These hydrants were threaded so you can easily hook up your water hose to fill your tanks. A vault toilet was also located within each of the two loops. All of the sites were over 40 feet in length,and had a picnic table (some with wind shelters) and a fire pit. Near the visitor center there were flush toilets, showers, and 2 washers and 2 dryers. The showers cost $1.00 for 4 minutes ($0.25 for each additional minute). The washers cost $0.75 and the dryers cost $1.00 (don’t know how many minutes). Internet access via a Verizon air card was slow. Verizon cell phone worked well. Camping cost $20 with a $7 day use pass per day. We would come back here again if we were in the area.
This is a nice campground. Some of the reviewers mentioned that it was noisy because the campground was located in an industrial park. True, there is some noise during the morning hours, but it really is not that bad. Almost the entire campground is on gravel. The center of the campground and some of the back-in sites along the perimeter have a patch of grass. The electrical pedestal is located at the back of the site. Most of the sites have 50/20 amp service – not 30 amps. The water and sewer is located towards the front of the site. The bath/shower rooms are very clean and have a combination lock to enter. There are a number of long term residents in the park. Their sites are clean and tidy. In the office there is a small book exchange along with 4 washers ($1.50) and dryers ($0.25 for 10 minutes). Internet access via a Verizon air card was good. Verizon cell phone also worked well. The park also had internet access, but we did not use it. The folks at the desk are friendly and eager to assist. I would definitely come back here again if I was in the area.
Overall this is a nice campground, but I see signs of neglect. The Navajo Nation took over this campground several years ago. The interior roads and sites have recently been paved. However, this is a confusing campground to navigate in. There are two-way roads that only one RV can safely pass. The bathrooms are old, tired looking, and a bit smelly. The bathrooms did not have paper towels, blow dryers, or soap. There are no showers at this campground. About ¼ of the sites can accommodate large rigs (over 38 feet). Caution must be taken because the interior roads are narrow. Some sites are more level than others. There is one water spigot (without threads) per camp loop. There is a dump station with fresh water. Surprisingly, there was no trash can at the dump station. This campground is dry camping only.
This is a nice RV Park right off of I-84. The interior roads and sites were on packed gravel. The first row of sites had W/E only and the remaining rows were FHU. The electrical pedestal had 20/30/50 amp service. All of the sites were extremely long. We did not unhitch our truck. The voltage was good. Verizon air card and cell phone worked well here. There were two clean bathrooms with showers. There were a number of long term residents. There was some road noise at night but it was not too bad. The owner mentioned that this park was sold and the new owners would be taking over the park in October. We would come back here again if we were passing through. This was the Passport America rate.
This is a small, basic campground owned by the Prospector hotel. There are 22 sites of which 6 are pull-thrus. The interior road and sites are on packed dirt with some gravel. There is a small patch of grass (mostly weeds and dirt) separating each site. All sites have FHU with 20/30/50 amp electrical service. The electrical voltage was good. There is neither cable nor Wi-Fi within the campground. There was reception for both Verizon’s air card and cell phone. The hotel allows you to use the indoor pool and spa along with their exercise room. Laundry room was also available but we did not check it out. This is a very basic campground but it is priced right. Diesel at the Texaco station (across the street) was $0.12 higher then other fueling stations. The Sinclair (now Chevron) station on the Indian Reservation was also higher then those within town. There were a number of long term residents using this park. There was little road noise at night but some of the long term residents did leave the park very early in the morning. This campground does fill up early. We would stay at this campground again if we were in the area.
This RV Park was really nice considering it is in a large city. The streets leading to the park were busy but once you got into the park it was relatively quiet. All of the interior roads and sites are loose gravel. Some of the sites could use more gravel. All of the sites were pull throughs and had FHU with 20/30/50 amp electrical service. The utilities are in the middle of the site; therefore, you might need to watch the position of your slide-outs. The bathroom and laundry were very clean. There were at least 10 washers and dryers. The washer was $1.50 for 30 minutes and the dryer also was $1.50 for 60 minutes. Verizon air card and cell phone worked well here. The first two rows were reserved for daily/weekly customers. The remaining rows were for long term residents. There was a bike path directly from the RV Park that went to Boise and beyond. You can also take it the opposite direction towards Eagle Lake State Park. There was some road noise at night but it was not too bad. We would come back here again if we were passing through.
As mentioned in previous posts, when we arrived the owners came out and greeted us and led us to our site. Nice touch. The interior roads and sites were on packed gravel and fairly leveled. All of the sites had FHU with 20/30/50 amp electrical service. The sites were long enough that we did not have to unhitch. The voltage was strong. Verizon air card and cell phone worked well here. There is WIFi available but we did not use it. The bathroom with 2 showers was very clean and appealing. There were 2 washers and dryers costing $2.00. There were a number of long term residents. There was some train and freeway noise at night but it was not too bad. We would come back here again if we were passing through.
This is a typical fairground, very basic but functional. The interior roads and sites were on packed gravel and weedy grass. There were a number of potholes so you would need to drive slowly within the park. The electrical pedestal had 20/30/50 amp service. The utilities are used by two sites. The utilities for one of the two sites were on the wrong site. Therefore you would have to run your electrical cord, sewer and water hoses underneath the rig. All sites were back-in and “back to back”. The bathrooms were old and very dated. They were clean but not very appealing. Verizon air card and cell phone worked well here. There is a discount for staying 3 or more nights. There was a camp host on site. This was a good location to explore Cashmere and Wenatchee. We would consider come back again.
This is a small, well kept campground. Most of the sites are back-in with a few pull-throughs. The interior road is paved with some of the sites paved while others are on gravel. All sites have FHU. The electrical pedestal had 20/30 amp service. The water/electric and sewer are situated at the back of the site. You will need at least a 20 foot sewer hose to reach the sewer. The bathrooms are fairly new and are spotless. Verizon wireless air card and phone worked well here. It was very quiet at night. The town of Wallace is within easy walking distance. We would definitely come back again.
This is a small, tight campground with mostly permanent residents. Well kept with clean bathrooms and showers. Showers will cost you $1.50 for 6 minutes. The laundry (the only one in town) was clean and is open to the public. The “pull through” sites had side to side pedestals. One rig pulls in from within the campground and the other rig pulls thru from the street. The interior road and sites are on packed gravel. Each site had 20/30/50 amps along with water and sewer. The electrical voltage was strong. Verizon air card and cell phone also worked well. The campgrounds Wi-Fi was also good. Check in is across the street. There is a free nightly shuttle to the Coulee Dam for the laser show.
This is a nice park. There are a lot of long term residents; however, their sites are well maintained. The interior roads and sites are on packed gravel. They have FHU with 15/30/50 amp electric service. Voltage was good. Verizon air card and cell phone worked well here. All of the sites were extremely wide. The bathrooms and showers are clean and inviting. Washer and Dryers are $1.00 each and are very clean. The staff and managers are very nice. Card games on Friday nights and ice cream socials are on Sundays. Oregon Gardens and Silver Falls are within 10 miles of the park. Salem is about 20 miles away. Price reflects Passport America discount. We would come back to this park if we were in the area.
The external and internal roads were asphalt. The sites were originally asphalt but have disintegrated many, many years ago. Leveling a rig is a little problematic due to some spots on the site are on asphalt and other spots were on dirt. The interior roads within the campground were narrow and crumbling. Our truck tires were barely on the road. The electrical pedestal had 15/30/50 amp service and the voltage was good. The water and sewer was a little closer to the front of the rig then normal. I had to use two 10 foot sewer hoses to reach the sewer. There was a picnic table and BBQ stand but no fire ring. Verizon air card and cell phone worked well here. The bathroom within the campground was clean and functional. The shower facility was located within the Mather campground We did not see a campground host but it was very quiet at night. It was off season so that could have made a difference. We would come back here again.
You can not make reservations for Organ Pipe National Monument. The park ranger stated that even during the prime season (January through March), it rarely fills up. The narrow interior road is on asphalt with tight corners. All sites are on cement with a picnic table and a bar-b-que. No hookups are available at the sites. Water and sewer is located at the dump station. There is water spigots scattered throughout the campground but they are not threaded. There are 6 bathrooms with 3 or 4 showers for the entire park. The showers are heated via solar panels. Off season, generators are limited to 8 to 10 AM and 4 to 6 PM. The blue background site numbers are reserved for RV’s 28 to 36 feet in length. Verizon air card and cell phone worked well within the park. This is a nice campground, but the sites are pretty close to each other and probably would feel cramped if it was filled. The border patrol definitely had a presence within the park. We would definitely come back again.
As many writers have already mentioned, the site layout is different then most campgrounds. This provides for a little more privately. Maximum size rig that a site can accommodate is 38 feet. There are 8 back-in and 10 pull-through sites. All sites have FHU with 20/30/50 amp electrical service. Electrical voltage was strong. Wi-Fi is available but we did not use it. Verizon air card was weak and therefore slow. Verizon cell phone worked well. The turn off onto Flurry road is a well maintained dirt county road. The sites and road within the campground is on crushed gravel. The campground had a well stocked DVD, magazine and book collection. There was also a small workout room, and one bathroom/shower per sex. One washer ($1.00) and one dryer ($1.00) were also within the club house. I would recommend that you call first to check for availability before driving to this campground. The park was filled while we were here and has been filled all month. The owners were very friendly. This is a great campground to visit Silver City and the surrounding areas. We would definitely come back here again.
This is really a nice quiet campground but keep in mine that we stayed here during the weekday in October. There are 10 W/E sites within this park. E01 thru E04 are back-in sites with E02 and E04 being reserved for the two camp hosts. E05 thru E10 are pull throughs with E07 and E08 on the reservation list. There is NO dump station within this park. The interior road is on crumbing asphalt that needed to be repaved years ago. There is no need for speed bumps, you have to go very slow to get around the pot holes. The electrical sites are on crushed gravel. There was 20/30/50 amp service and the voltage was strong. Verizon air card and cell phone worked well within this park. There are a number of vault toilets located around the rocks. There is also flush toilets and showers near the visitor center. They looked clean but we did not use them. The park also has 50 dry camping sites scattered within the rocks. From my point of view, these sites are best for tent camping. None of the sites are leveled and would be very difficult to navigate for anything over 20 feet trailer. Overall, the park is very nice but really needs to be updated. The sites around the rocks need to be leveled and the roads within the park need to be repaved. The electrical sites are level but fresh gravel needs to be added. The Faywood spa (2 miles down the road) has been closed for the past 4 years. However, a portion of the spa is expected to be opened at the end of October. We would definitely come back if we were in the area.
We stayed at the South Monticello campground in mid October which is considered “off season”. The boat ramp at South Monticello is closed because the water level is extremely low. The campground was only about a third filled with just a few boaters. There are two vault toilets and one bathhouse with flush toilets and showers. They looked clean, but we did not use them. There is also a dump station located at the entrance to the campground. The inner side of the loop had pull-thru sites and the outer side had back-in sites. All of the sites were extremely long. These sites could easily accommodate a large rig, car and boat. The interior road is paved but a little narrow and the sites were on crushed gravel. All sites had 20/30/50 amp service and water. The electrical voltage was good. Each site had a covered table and fire ring. Verizon air card and cell phone worked well. From I-40 take exit 89 onto Martin Ranch road. Don’t take exit 92. According to the camp host it is a rutted dirt road. At this time of year it was very quiet and peaceful. We would definitely come back again
This is a small campground right on top of the Raton Pass. If you are traveling south the exit is 460 and the sign will say “weight station”. Cross over the freeway and turn right. The campground is on the left. All sites have FHU with 20/30/50 amp electrical service. The sites and roads are on crushed gravel. All of the utilities are in the middle of the site. The electrical voltage was good. The bathroom and showers are clean. There are two washers ($1.25) and one dryer ($1.50) located in the bathroom area. Verizon air card only had one to two bars – somewhat usable. Verizon cell phone had one bar and sometimes worked. The campground had Wi-Fi but we did not use it. There is a large book exchange and an extensive DVD collection. One of the guests told us that they broke down about 70 miles from the campground. They called the campground and the owners drove back to their location, picked up the rig and towed it back to the campground. Now that was refreshing to hear! We would come back here again if we were in the area.
This is a nice campground with 19 sites with a mixture of pull-outs and back-ins. The road and sites were on packed gravel. There are no utilities but water was available. There were 2 vault toilets. Almost all of the sites have a view of the lake and were long and spacious. Each site had a picnic table and shelter on a concrete pad with a fire ring. Since we stayed at this park off season it was very quiet and peaceful. Verizon cell phone was on extended network and worked most of the time. Verizon air card work pretty well. Your registration sticker that you put on your vehicle will allow you to visit Cimarron Canyon State Park free of charge (normally $5 per day). Be aware that there are few signs directing you to Eagle Nest Lake Park. Turn left at B11B road (coming from Eagle Nest). You will see a sign for Angel Nest Retreat RV Park. The state park is at the end of this dirt road. We would come back again if we were in the area.
Jolly Rodger is both a service repair shop as well as a small campground. There is nothing special about this campground, but the price is reasonable. The road and sites are a mixture of gravel and dirt. The sites are pretty level. Most of the sites have FHU with 30A and 20A service. A couple of sites have electric only. Electrical voltage was good. There is a dump station at the campground. Verizon air card and cell phone worked well. The bathroom and shower building are the typical brick structures – old but clean. You will need to call head for the bathroom code if you plan to arrive after 5 PM. If this campground was filled (which it rarely is) you would not be able to extend your slides. It was very quiet at night. If you are not looking for any amenities then this campground would be better and cheaper then the one next door. We camped here with a 32 foot 5th wheel. We would come back if we were in the area.
Considering this is an ‘overnight’ campground, it is really well kept. The owners take a lot of pride in their park. The interior roads and sites are on packed dirt. The sites are fairly leveled and each site had a picnic table and fire ring. The back-in sites are designed for smaller rigs (about 21 feet) and have water and electric only. The pull-through sites have 50/30/20 amp service with water and sewer. The electrical voltage was good. All of the utilities were centrally located. The bathroom/showers were clean and definitely usable. Showers cost 25 cents per 6 minutes. There are two washers ($2.00 each) and two dryers (75 cents each). There is also a clothes line available. There is a small miniature golf course, an unheated pool and a book exchange. Verizon air card had broadband with 4 bars. Verizon cell phone worked well. There is also free Wi-Fi. Overall, this is a nice park. The campground is 1½ miles away from the freeway. There is little road noise at night. I would definitely recommend this park.
This park has a serious name issue. The official name is Pulpit Rock Campground but the receipt has the name of Decorah Campground. The park has two loops, the second loop is called Twin Creeks Campground: not Twin Creeks loop. Typical of most campgrounds in Iowa, you can move your rig onto a site and not come back until the weekend. Many of the local residents do that. Since this campground does not take reservations it would be best of arrive before Thursday night. The Pulpit Rock loop has more sites and are a bit more crowded then the Twin Creeks Campground. There is a restroom and shower in both loops. The bathroom/showers were clean and usable. Wi-Fi is available but the best reception is at the office. Each site has a picnic table and a fire ring. The interior roads are asphalt and the sites are on packed gravel. All sites have 30/20 amp service and the voltage was good. There are a number of pull-through sites but on the weekends they may double up on these sites. Fresh water is available near the dump stations located at both loops. Some sites overlook the river. Verizon air card had two bars with Broadband access. Verizon cell phone worked well. You can walk to the town of Decorah via the bike/walking paths. This is a very quiet park, even on the weekends. There is some freeway noise from Hwy 52 but not bad at night. We would definitely come back here again.
This is a nice park. Some of the loops are wooded; others are just shaded while other loops are in the sun. Most (not all) sites can accommodate large rigs – without the tow. There are plenty of parking spaces for the tow. Some sites are on gravel and others are on cement. The interior roads are on asphalt. Only Tailwater West has FHU with 50/30 amp service. All other sites have 30/20 amp service only. The electrical voltage was good. Fresh water can be found at the dump station. The loops near the boat dock can be a little noisy. There is also a very large beach area. The bathroom/showers are the typical state park facilities. They are clean but not very appealing. Verizon air card was a little weak but usable. Verizon cell phone had 2 – 3 bars with Broadband access. We would definitely come back here again if we were in the area.
The interior road is on gravel and is very potholed. The first thing you will see when you drive into this campground is the bathroom/shower facility. The electric only sites are on your left, the FHU’s are on your right. There are no signs indicating this. There is just a concrete pad for the FHU sites. The back and front of the pad is on grass: not gravel. The trees on this road badly need to be pruned. There are 10 FHU sites for $24 with 50/30 amp electrical service. The concrete pads can accommodate a large rig without detaching a tow. The widths of the pads are unusually wide. If you position your rig correctly, you should not have a problem accessing the electrical pedestal and water spigot. You will probably need a 20 foot sewer hose. There are also 7 electric only sites for $13. These sites are on grass (very muddy after a rain) with 30 amp electrical service. The trees in this area also need to be trimmed. The bathroom/showers are very, very old and not appealing. They should have been upgraded 10 years ago. The appeared to be clean but we chose not to use them. There is no Wi-Fi and the Verizon air card reception was poor. The Verizon cell phone only had one bar and was dropping calls. The electricity was good. I would advice to call ahead because this campground is used by groups and may not be available. The campground is conveniently located to visit Nauvoo and Keokuk. We would probably come back here if we were in the neighborhood.
This park can use a little LTC. It was open for the season about a month ago and I really don’t see much maintenance. The trees need to be pruned and the roads definitely need work. The interior roads are asphalt, narrow and in bad condition. There are many potholes and are rutted. Drive slowly and carefully. The sites are on gravel. Some sites are more level then others. The pull-thru sites are closed to each other then the back ins. A large motorhome with a tow can fit into some of the pull-thru sites without disconnecting. The electrical pedestal, sewer and water spigot are located at a good location. The electricity was good. The bathroom/showers were fairly clean. A couple of writers mentioned that the bathrooms were redone a few years ago. The bathrooms didn’t look all that new to me. Be aware that the bathroom/showers are not air conditioned. Just a large fan circulating the hot humid air. There was Wi-Fi available but we did not use it. Verizon air card signal was weak but we were able to use it. Verizon cell phone was on extended network but again was usable. They currently have a “stay 3 nights and get the 4th night free”. That makes the rate a little more reasonable, but $30 for W/E is the going rate in this town. This park would feel very crowded if it was full. We would probably come back here again if we were in the neighborhood.
It seems that the revenue generated at this park is not being funneled back into the campground. The interior road, once asphalt, has degraded into packed dirt in many areas. There are large potholes throughout the park. The sites are on packed gravel and are not leveled. Their website indicates that there are 8 FHU’s. There are actually 16 FHU’s, two of them are reserved for the camp hosts. The following sites have FHU: 51, 56, 66 through 76, 84 through 86. Some of the sites are in peculiar locations and the electrical pedestal and/or water spigot are extremely far away. Some sites you would have go underneath another rig to access the electrical pedestal. Other sites the water spigot is at least 30 feet away. Their website indicates that there are 87 total campsites. In reality the total number of campsites are much less. One loop is reserved for tent camping, but this loop now looks like it is being used by the maintenance crew. Some of the RV sites are really not usable. The electrical voltage is on the extreme high side (averaging about 125 amps). Some sites had 30/50 amp service while others had 30 amp service only. The bathroom/showers are somewhat clean and very tired looking. We chose not to use them. There is a dump station at the main gate. Verizon air card and cell phone worked well here. I think this park would be very crowded if the campground was filled. This was a good location to visit Springfield. We would possibly come back if it was off season.
This park was a good location to visit the sites of Alton and St Louis. It is also not far from large department stores. The interior roads (gravel) are a bit narrow but definitely doable. All sites are also on gravel. It rained quite heavily during out stay but the sites and roads drained very well. All sites were pull-thru and can accommodate any size rig with tow. The electrical utility (30/50 amp) and sewer were located about the middle side of the site. The water spigot was placed towards the back and required a long hose to reach. There was some road noise from the freeway. There are two washers and two dryers and cost $1.25 per load. The bathroom/showers were clean and appealing. It is very obvious that the owners take pride in their campground. Verizon air card and cell phone worked well here. We would come back here if we were in the neighborhood.
This is a really nice campground. There are 5 loops, only 1 (Bay Area) can be reserved (via Reserveamerica.gov). The camp hosts are located within Shady Loop and Lake View loops. One host is on duty at any given time. The interior roads and sites are on asphalt and are very wide. Almost all of the sites are around 60 feet long. A 40 foot motorhome with a tow can easily fit into most of the sites. Most of the sites are fairly level and there is lots of room between each site. All sites have electricity: most have 30/15 amp service. There are sites scattered around the park that have 50/30 amp service. Water is available at the dump station and there are a few water spigots in each loop. You would need a very long hose to access them. There is only one sewer at the dump station for the entire park. The bathroom/showers are the typical state park facilities. They are usable but not very appealing. We chose not to use them. There is also a nice bike path circling the campground. Be aware that there is no signage on the bike path. Verizon air card and cell phone service worked well here. We would definitely come back here again if we were in the area.
This is a basic campground with clean bathrooms and showers. The interior roads are asphalt and all sites are on gravel. Most of the sites are large enough to accommodate most rigs. It rained a good portion of our stay, but the roads and sites quickly dried up. All sites have FHU. The utilities were placed a little further back thus requiring a longer sewer hose. The water spigot was underground, making it difficult to access. The electrical voltage was strong. Wi-Fi was available, but we did not use it. Verizon air card and cell phone worked well. Most of the sites are pull-thrus. There are two washers and two dryers (reasonable priced). There are a number of long term residents but their sites were very well kept. There are a number of rules (such as $25 deposit if you have pets) and they are enforced. That could be a reason why the park is well maintained. This campground is located just off the freeway and was a little noisy at night. This campground is about 30 minutes away from Louisville. Overall, this was a nice campground and we would come back here again.
We had planned to stay at this park, but after looking at this campground, we decided to move on. Although there are 36 sites shown on their web site only 17 sites near the main entrance are suitable for RVs. The narrow loop road and sites were on gravel. The back-in sites were over grown and were on a slope. The pull-thrus were long and deeply rutted. There were mature trees that were not trimmed properly. Large sharp limbs could easily cause damage to a roof. All sites have side by side hookups. The other sites (areas 2 and 3) were located in back of the playhouse and were on grass. It appeared that these other sites were not maintained. We have a 32 foot 5th wheel and would not recommend this place.
This is an Escapees park, but non members can camp here (for an additional fee). As you drive into this campground, the newer section is on the right (even though it is hard to see the difference). All of the pull-through sites have 30/50 amp service (and you will pay for 50 amp service even if your rig is 30 amps). There are a few back-in sites that have 30 amp service. The utilities on the newer section are located near the middle side of the site. The utilities on the older section are not located in any logical order. Some sites require more than 20 feet of hose to reach to sewer. Other sites require a very long electrical cord. The main roads and sites are on gravel. Most of the sites are not level and in the newer section deep ruts can be found on some the sites. The pull-through sites are close together. The bathroom/showers were clean but showing its age. Verizon air card and cell phone worked well here. Wi-Fi and cable TV are available for an additional fee. Breakfast is served on Saturday and dinners are on Wednesday. All of the meals are at a very reasonable price. It is an easy drive from this campground to Knoxville (less than 20 minutes). We would come back here if we were in the neighborhood.
We took a look at this park but did not stay here. The main road and sites are on asphalt. Most of the sites were not very long and were not level. It appears to me that a class A or C would have an easier time backing into a site. The main road was very narrow and mature trees could make backing in a challenge. The location of the utilities varied from site to site. Water did not appear to be available at each site and their location was not within easy reach. We spotted only 2 sites that we would be able to get into. We have a 32 foot 5th wheel. We would not camp here.
This is an older park and does show its age. My advice would be to walk around the park first before selecting a site. Most of the sites are not level. Some sites are up hill while others are on a down hill. 20 sites have FHU and are located in the first section. The rest of the sites have water and electric. The pull-through sites are very long but the average width of the site is 9 feet (yes, I did measure it). The main road and sites are on gravel. All of the sites needed to be weeded to the point that sites are now covered with grass. All sites are side by side hookup. There is only 9 feet between each of these sites. It would be very crowded if the park was filled. All sites have 50 amp service. The bathroom/shower appeared to be clean but very, very dated. We choose not to use them. The web site advertises Wi-Fi is available but we did not see the signal. Verizon air-card worked well, however the cell phone was on extended network. This is a very quiet park and we would come back here.
We stayed at this COE during the week day so it was quiet and peaceful. Most of the sites are far apart from each other (except those sites overlooking the lake). The interior road and sites are on asphalt. The road is fairly narrow making it difficult to back into a site, especially for a 32-foot, 5th wheel. The utility box and water was located near the back of the site. You will need a fairly long hose to connect to the water spigot. The electrical voltage was strong. Verizon air card was a little weak but usable. The Verizon cell phone worked well. The bathroom and showers were clean. They were a little dated but functional. There was one washer and one dryer located at the back of the bath house. We had two pretty good rain storms during our stay. The overall drainage was good. The roads and sites were not in a pool of water. This is a good location to visit Nashville (about 17 miles away). We would definitely come back again if we were in the area.
This park is basically a flat graveled plot of land. All of the utilities were in the back of the site. You would need a minimum of 20 feet to access the sewer and a long hose to connect to the water faucet. There were a couple of pull-through sites, but most of the sites were back-in. The electrical voltage was on the weak side. Verizon air card and cell phone worked well here. The individual bathroom/showers were very clean and large. We would come back again.
This is a nice park. It was very quiet and peaceful, but we did stay here during the weekday when the park was not filled. The roads in the park are very chewed up. Drive slowly to avoid most of the pot holes. There are two RV campground loops, Deer Run and Eagle Ridge. Deer Run is older and is more crowded then Eagle Ridge. Eagle Ridge had new bathrooms, a laundry facility and a small conference room. Deer Run had mostly 20/30 amp electricity with water, whereas Eagle Ridge had mostly 30/50 amp electricity with water and sewer. The garbage dump was located just before the turn off to Eagle Ridge making it about ¼ mile walk. The interior roads and sites were paved. Many of the pads within the Deer Run were in disrepair. We stayed at the Eagle Ridge loop. The electrical utilities, sewer and water were all located at the back of the site. Verizon cell phone worked well, but the Verizon air card signal was very weak. Electrical voltage was strong. The bathrooms and showers were clean. We were surprised to see long term residents. This state park allows campers to stay 3 months with the option to stay longer. We don’t know if all state parks in Mississippi have this policy. We would come back again.
This is a good location to visit the Vicksburg National Park and/or the 5 casinos. The interior roads and sites are paved. The electrical utilities, water spigot and sewer are located in the middle of the site. The electrical voltage was good. A large number of sites can accommodate a large rig without unhitching the tow. There is cable TV, but we did not use it. Verizon cell phone and air card worked well. The two bathrooms, located at the front desk, contained two showers and were clean. Train noise was apparent at night but only an occasional horn blowing. We used 'white noise' to block it out. The sites are long but the width is about 10 feet. It is almost impossible not to drive over the grass. It seemed to me that this park is slowing getting past its prime. The cement on many of the sites was crumbling and the interior road could use some maintenance. I wonder how long the shower head has been leaking. We did not see any maintenance crew in the 4 days we were there. We would probably come back here again if we were in the neighborhood.
If you need to be near Little Rock City or playing tourist, then this is a good place to be. The campground is within walking distance to the trolley or you could walk over the bridge to all of the major attractions. The interior road is paved and the sites are on gravel. The back-in sites near the sea wall are all W/E all other sites are FHU. There is a dump station on site. The electricity was good. Wi-Fi is free but we did not use it. Verizon air card and phone worked well. There are two bathroom/shower rooms (male/female) and were clean. The pedestals for the back-in sites near the sea wall are a bit odd. If you have an even numbered site, then the utilities are not on the correct side. You will need to run your electrical cord and water hoses underneath your rig to get to the utilities. The pedestals in the center row are for 4 rigs. There are no lines to delineate each rig and it could get very crowded if all of the sites were filled. All sites have 50 amp service. You must bring a 50 – 30 amp reducer if you are using only 30 amps. After 9 PM, the gates are closed but the camp host will give you the access code. My only gripe is that this park can get very, very crowded if it was filled. The price reflects the Passport America price (valid for 3 days). We would come back to the park if we were in the area.
This is basically a bare bone RV park. The inside road is gravel and most of the sites are gravel; the rest were on grass. Most of the sites were pretty leveled. The electricity is on the low side, and I had to watch my electrical usage. Note that the park was ¾ empty and A/C was not needed. The one washer ($3.50 per load) and one dryer (free) was in one of the two bathrooms. The two showers were clean but not appealing. We opted not to use them. Verizon air card and cell phone worked well here. This campground also had free Wi-Fi, but we did not use it. Tyson processing plant was next door and a prison was about ½ mile away. There was very little noise at night. We would probably come back again because there were very few campgrounds in this area. We thought that $29 per night was a bit steep for what we got.
This was not a bad RV park considering it was in the middle of Oklahoma City. The inner roads were paved, and the sites were on gravel. The sites were pretty leveled and were a little tight (some more then others). The electricity was good. The bathrooms were clean but not appealing. We did not use them. The indoor pool and spa was a nice touch and very refreshing. Verizon air card and cell phone worked well here. This campground also had free Wi-Fi, but we did not use it. Part of the campground had long-term tenants but was well maintained. There was little road noise at night. The freeways were very chewed up and there was lots of road construction. We would come back to this park if we were in the neighborhood.
This is a small park with 16 FHU RV sites, 4 are 50 amp and the rest are 30 amp. All sites are pull-through and can accommodate large rigs. There is a gas station (including diesel), a small grocery and a restaurant on the premise. The sites are on gravel and are level. The electricity is good. The bathroom/showers are in the restaurant. The dark tiles in the bathroom reminded me of some of the older state park facilities. We chose not to use them. This campground is perfect for an overnight stop. We would definitely come here again. The rate reflects the Passport America discount.
The entrance to the state park is a short and somewhat steep road. Some of the sites had FHU and the rest of the sites have water and electric only. There is a dump station within the park. The interior roads and sites are on asphalt. The interior roads are narrow and could be a problem if the park was crowded. There is mostly dirt separating each site and could be very dusty if the winds kick in. The water and electric facilities are located in the middle of the site and the sewer is towards the back. Each site has a picnic table and BBQ stand. The trees needed to be pruned. If you have a tall rig, look carefully at each site. The bathrooms are very old, tired and sad looking. Verizon air card signal was weak but we were able to access the internet. You may need an antenna to boost the signal. The Verizon cell phone occasionally searched for a signal but we were able to make and receive calls. This park tries to accommodate all types of activities. There is a boat dock, swimming area, picnic area, playground, and a small restaurant. This park could get very busy and crowded if all the sites were taken. We would probably come back here again if it was during the weekday and not in season.
The entire park is on packed gravel with some trees and shrubs. All sites are pull-thrus and have FHU with 30/50 amp electrical service. The sites are pretty level. Every site had a picnic table but no BBQ stand. There are two bathrooms with showers. They are very clean and spacious. There is a game room (converted from a two car garage) and a laundry room. Wi-Fi is available (free) but a little slow. Verizon cell phone worked well, but the Verizon air-card needed an antenna to get National access. Since the park is right off of US 95, there was highway noise. We would stay here again if we were in the area.
There is nothing fancy about this campground (also known as the Super 8 hotel). It’s just a large asphalt parking lot, not a stitch of grass or trees. However, there were very few rain puddles after three days of rain. The utilities were shared by two RV’s (each pointing in the opposite direction). All of the site were pull-throughs and had FHU (30 amp electrical service). The bathrooms are in the casino but there were no showers. The campground was very well lit at night. It would be very crowded if the campground was full (but I’m told that it rarely is). The check-in desk is located in the casino. Some nights were noisier then others. The casino had Wi-Fi, but we did not use it. Verizon air card and cell phone service worked well here. We would stay here again if we were in the area.
We came to this park because it was a good resting point before moving onto Fernley, Nevada. The private road to the campground was on improved dirt. Going slowing it was doable. We did not realize that all of the sites were on sand, not packed sand, just loose sand. We attempted to get into our site but got stuck in the sand. I have a one ton truck hauling a heavy rig. After a couple of tries we gave up, asked for our money back and continued onto Fernley. Even if we did get into this spot, the campground was only good as an over nighter, definitely not a destination spot. The sites looked old and tired. The price reflects a Passport America rate had we stayed there. I would pull off to the side of the road then stay here.
I agree with the prior reviewer, this campground was a pleasant surprise. There were about 24 FHU (30 amp electricity) and 6 Water only (20 amp electricity) sites. The interior road was gravel that ended at the dump station. All sites were on grass, some more level then others. All of the utilities were on a cement pad that was positioned closer to the front of the site. Each site had a little space between the next one. None of the sites had a picnic table or a BBQ stand. There are two bathrooms with showers, but only one was open this time of year. The bathroom was clean but utilitarian and contained 3 showers. Verizon cell phone and air card worked well here. This fairground had basic amenities and was priced right. The normal price for a FHU is $26 but the city reduced it to $16 and if you have a Passport America card the price is $13. It was very quiet at night. We would definitely come back here if we were in the area.
We took a look at Loops A, B and C without our rig. Contrary to what some reviewers wrote; the campground look and felt very, very old and run down. Please note that we did not stay at this campground (nor would we). The interior roads had many large pot holes and were very narrow. The sites were on dirt and most (if not all) were heavy used. None of the sites were level. The pull-throughs were very short and more suited for a class ‘A’ or ‘C’ rigs. I think that any 5th wheel or trailer larger than 25 feet would have a difficult time maneuvering into a site. A class ‘A’ or ‘C’ would have an easier time getting to a site. I would not even consider driving my 32 foot 5th wheel into this campground.
This campground is catering to families and has more cabins then RV sites. There is a recreation hall, but really designed for children and not for adults. There is also a large playground for the children. They have about 10 FHU and another 10 W/E RV sites. All are very close to each other. The interior road and sites are gravel. Some sites are more level then others. We came here after Labor Day so it was not crowded. My guess is that this campground would be very, very crowded during the summer months especially considering it is the closest campground coming from the South entrance of Crater Lake. The bathroom and shower were clean but very, very dated. Judging how well this campground is kept, the bathroom was a disappointment. Verizon air card only picked up National not Broadband (even after hooking it up to an antenna). The campground had Wi-Fi but it too was very weak. Verizon cell phone had one or two bars (we were able to make and receive calls). I’m not sure that I would return again, especially if it was during the summer time. Perhaps I would explore a different part of the Crater Lake area.
There are two sections to the Riverview Trailer Park. The first section is a trailer park which is kept very well. The second section is the RV park. There are mostly long term residents at the campground. The grounds have plenty of grass and it is obvious that the owners take great pride in their establishment. The interior road and sites are gravel. The widths of the sites are a little narrow, but there should not be a problem getting into them. Some sites are more level then others. There is a picnic table at each site but no BBQ stand. All sites have FHU with 30/50 amp electricity. The bathroom and showers were a little dated but very clean. There are two washers and two dryers and are reasonable priced. Wi-Fi is available, but the signal was weak at our site (we did not use it). Verizon air card and cell phone worked well. Cable TV is also available. Your GPS will probably tell you to take Doe Lane from Burgess Road. Doe Lane is a dirt road. A better route would be to continue on Burgess Road to the traffic light. Turn right onto South Huntington road. The RV park will be on your left. We would come back here again if we were in the area.
This is one of the nicer fairgrounds we have been too but it was a little sterile with very little trees or grass. All sites have 30/50 amp electricity with water and sewer. You will probably need an extra sewer hose to make the connection. The wide interior roads and sites were paved. Each site had a picnic table and BBQ stand. The bathroom and showers were a little surprise. While very clean, it was very utilitarian. The bathrooms were constructed with cinder blocks, typical of most fairgrounds. Wi-Fi was available but we did not use it. Verizon air card and cell phone worked well. There were 3 washers and 3 dryers and they were reasonably priced. Note that there is no cable TV. There was some train noise at night but that was not a problem for us. The fairgrounds were a little pricey but that is the going rate for this area. We would come back here again if we were in the area.
This RV park has all pull-through sites. One row has FHU with 50 amp electricity; the other row has W/E with 30 amp electricity. The interior and sites were on lava gravel and there was a dump station on site. The interior roads were very wide and all sites were long enough to accommodate a 32 foot rig and truck. There was enough green grass between each site so you don’t feel crowded, however, there were no picnic table nor BBQ stand available. The park was not far from US-84 but there was very little traffic noise at night. There were two bathrooms (with showers) for the entire park and they were very clean. There is a café on site but we did not eat there. There was only one washer and dryer for the entire park. This park had Wi-Fi available but we did not use it. Verizon air card and cell phone worked well here. We would come back here again if we were in the area.
This state park has a combination of pull-through and back-in sites. All have 30/50 amp electricity with water. The utilities for the back-in sites were located towards in the back, and in the center for the pull-throughs. There is a dump station within the campgrounds. All of the sites and interior roads are paved. Some sites are more level then others. All sites have a picnic table and a fire ring. The bathrooms and showers where utilitarian but usable. We had to use our antenna to get solid reception for our Verizon air card, otherwise the reception bars would fluctuate between none and one bar. The Verizon cell phone worked well without the antenna. The park and campgrounds were very pretty and we would definitely come back here again if we were in the area.
This RV park are all pull-through sites with FHU's. The longer sites have 50 amp, the rest of the sites have 30 amp. Both the interior roads and sites were graveled. The width of each site was narrow, forcing you to go over the grass. There is green grass between each site so you don’t feel crowded. Each site had a picnic table and a BBQ stand. Some sites are more level then others. Trees needed to be trimmed on some sites. We had to move to another site because the tree limbs were in the way. The bathrooms and showers were clean. The Wi-Fi signal was strong but we did not use it. Verizon air card and cell phone worked well here. Free breakfast (for each night) was a nice touch. We would stay here again if we were in the area.
Bannock County Fairgrounds RV Park in Pocatello has about 125 sites. All have water and electric (30 and 50 amps available). The electricity was very good. There is a dump station at the campgrounds. It could feel crowded if the park was filled (which probably only happens if there was an event going on in the fairgrounds). The sites (all back-ins) are on grass and not very level, but manageable. The bathroom and showers was a couple of notches above what we have seen in other fairgrounds. Call for directions, Mapquest and Streets and Trips will should you a round about way to get to this fairground. Verizon air card and cell phone worked well. Daily rate for non events is $20, event camping is $10. We stayed at the fairgrounds with a 32 footer. We would stay here again if were in the area.
The loop roads within Massacre Rocks State Park are all paved, however, they are very narrow. All sites are on gravel and have 30/50 amp electricity along with a water spigot. In most cases the utilities are located in the middle of the site. Most sites are fairly level and have a picnic table and fire ring. Each loop (upper and lower) has bathrooms with showers. The bathrooms are clean but utilitarian. There was a dump station within the park. The camp host was on site and very friendly. Wi-Fi is available for $29 (good for one year and can be used within any Idaho State Park). We did not use it so we don’t know how good it was. Verizon air-card and cell phone worked well. We would definitely come back again.
Bear Lake State Park is 11 miles from St. Charles, ID. There is no camp host at this campground. Sites 1 through 20 have 30 amp electric. Some of these sites have access to a threaded water spigot. Bring extra water hoses, some spigots are a long distance away from the site. Most of the back-in sites can handle a large rig. Site #2 is a very long pull-through but the electrical outlet is on the extreme end of the site and the water spigot is on the opposite end of the site. The loop road is a little narrow but paved and all sites are gravel. Most are fairly level. There are no showers within this park. There are two dump stations with potable water. The park staff only came around during the morning hours. This campground could get a little noisy without the presence of a camp host. Wi-Fi is available for $29 (good for one year and can be used within any Idaho State Park). We did not use it so we don’t know how good it was. Verizon air-card and cell phone worked well. We would come back again, probably during the week-day.
This state park is located about four miles from the freeway. We stayed in Loop B. Each site has a picnic table and metal shade awning. The pull throughs were all too short for our 32 foot fifth wheel. The back-in spots varied in length and width but you should be able to find a spot that could accommodate almost any size RV. The sites and roads were paved. The single-loop road was a bit narrow but do-able. We stayed here mid-week and there were only about 12 sites being used in both loops. Therefore electric was good but I can’t say how it would be when the park was filled. There are only two showers for the entire park which is not enough if it were filled. They were clean but lacked ventilation. Verizon air card and phone worked well here on Broadband access. There was no camp host on duty. The park was OK but it seemed to be a little rundown. With no camp host present, there appeared to be lack of maintenance during our stay. There is no day-use fee like some states charge in addition to the camping fee. The midge bugs were out in force during our stay. Bring repellent. We might stay here again if in the area.
This state park is conveniently located off the freeway right on the Colorado River. The small town of Fruita is about 1-1/2 miles away. Grand Junction is 8 miles away. The west entrance to the Colorado National Monument is 2 miles away. There is a train nearby, but for us the noise was not that intrusive and the trains did not run frequently. Each site has a picnic table, metal shade awning and firepit. All the sites are spacious and could accommodate almost any size RV. All the roads and sites are paved. We had a water and electric pull through. The pull throughs were very long but if we went back again, we would opt for a back-in site. One downside of the pull throughs is that the metal shade awning was built too close to the site apron and we could not bring out our awning. An awning is important in this campground since most of the sites do not have shade. Temperatures were near 100 when we camped here. The washers and driers were a little old but clean and reasonably priced. There is a book exchange. There are showers but there is a charge which I feel is a ripoff since, in addition to the campsite fee, you pay an day-use fee for everyday you are here. Our Verizon card and phone worked well here with Broadband access. We would stay here again.
This park is a small mom-and-pop operation. It is located in the city limits just a few blocks from downtown. It has an unusual entrance. If you are arriving from the east, you drive through the back of a shopping center to get to the park. Be sure to call for directions. Each site has either a picnic table or a small wrought iron table and chairs. The sites are separated by a small split-rail wooden fence. All the sites are very close together. We had a water and electric back-in site# 40, which was near the creek. Although the sites are small, they are do-able even with a big rig. The park was very quiet. The washers and driers were new and reasonably priced. There is a book exchange. There is a miniature golf onsite and the first game is complimentary. There are showers which were “dated” but very clean. Free WiFi is available but we did not use it so cannot comment on speed. Our Verizon card and phone worked well here with Broadband access. There is a pride in ownership in this park. However, the park has changed owners who took over the day after we arrived. We would stay here again.
This campground is located on Blue Mesa Reservoir. We stayed in Loop D which has electric hookups. Potable water is available near the dump station. We had a back-in site. Most back-in sites are long and wide to accommodate boats and trucks and trailers. There is a single loop road which was paved as were the sites. The loop road was a little narrow. Pullthrough sites were not very long so if you have a large fifth wheel you might not fit properly. We had two sites during our stay and our first site required some side-to-side leveling but the second site was better. The bathrooms were old. Showers are located near the marina. I took one look and decided not to use them. They were old, smelled and weren’t very clean. Electric was on the low side. Verizon aircard worked but was slow on National Extended network. Verizon cell phone worked on Extended network. The campground is right off Hwy 50 so there is traffic noise during the day but was very quiet at night. The dry camping sites were also large and could probably accommodate almost any sized rig. We would stay there also. We would stay here again.
This park is run by the City of Gunnison, and you must be 55+ to stay here. It is located in town. Don’t use Mapquest or mapping programs for directions but rather call for specific directions. Our mapping program did not pinpoint the location correctly. We enjoyed our stay here. This park was a great find and probably the best in the area. The pullthrough sites are mainly side-by-side hookups and rather close together. The back-in sites are roomier and not side-by-side. The roads and sites are gravel. Each site has a picnic table. There is a small rec room with TV, book exchange, puzzles, small kitchen and games. There is a covered patio with picnic tables for the potlucks that are held. Most of the people are returnees but were very welcoming. There are 3 washers and 3 dryers all of which were new and reasonably priced. There are two showers which were very clean. Free Wi-fi is available but we did not use it so cannot comment on speed. Our Verizon card and phone worked well here with Broadband access. We camped here in a 32’ fifth wheel and we would definitely stay here again.
This is a small, basic park located about 15 miles from Salida. There are about 12 sites for RVs and a separate area for tents. Roads and sites are packed dirt. Sites were fairly level. Maneuvering into the sites was a little tricky, but do-able. Bathrooms and showers were very clean. There are two washers and three dryers that were reasonably priced. Verizon aircard and cell phone do not work in this area but work in the city of Salida. The owners take pride in their small campground and you can see it in the flowers beds that separate some of the sites. Even though the park is located right off the highway, it was quiet at night. We would stay here again.
This park has several different rate structures depending upon the site, location and utilities. Roads are gravel and wide. Sites are all gravel. Sites were separated by a grassy area and some areas were larger than others. There is a small rec hall. A pool table is available for a fee. There is a book and video exchange. One computer is available for use. Laundry onsite was expensive. There are six showers and bathrooms and they were very clean. Verizon aircard and phone worked well. Even though the park is located right off the highway, it was quiet at night. In looking at other campgrounds in the area, this park appears to be a good pick. The premium spots really didn’t warrant the extra money. Go for the standard site to fit your rig. We would stay here again.
This park is conveniently located in the town of South Fork. It is a very basic park and from what we can tell, one of the better parks in the area. The roads and sites are gravel. Each site is separated by a corral-like metal fence. The sites are close together with tow vehicles and toads parked every which way on the roads since the spaces are too tight to park your vehicle in the site. There is a small rec hall that is open to all unless it is booked by a group staying in the park. Most of the people in the park are returnees from East Texas who stay for the summer and seem to know each other. However, they were all very welcoming to us and invited us to their weekly jam session and card nights. There are weekly pot lucks. Verizon aircard and phone worked well. There is are two bathrooms and two showers and were very clean. There were two washers and two dryers and were reasonably priced. WiFi is available but we didn’t use it. The owners are very friendly and accommodating. For what you get, I feel the cost of the campground was high but this is the going rate for the area. We would stay here again.
This park has 10 sites and is very basic. These sites are W/E only; there is no sewer on site. Closet dump is Alamosa. All sites are pull through and dirt. Sites are very long and can accommodate very large and long rigs. Electric was very good. The park is primarily used by people who are there to use the hot springs pool. It was very dark and quiet at night while we were there. You get a 50% discount off of the cost of admission to the pool. Showers and bathrooms are in the pool area. There is a small restaurant in the pool area that is reasonably priced. Wi-Fi is also available in the pool area but we did not use it so cannot comment on speed. Verizon cell phone and air card worked well. The cost of the campground was relatively high but this is the going rate for the area. Dry camping is also available but not advertised. At the time, the dry camp rate was $10. We would stay here again.
Heron Lake has two campgrounds with water and electric, Blanco is the newer of the two campgrounds. Willow campground is smaller and has lots of trees. Blanco is more open and the sites are wider. The electricity at Blanco was on the low side of normal. With no appliances on (except for the phantom load), the electricity registered about 112 watts. The bathrooms and showers were ‘useable’. I think the camp host just hoses down the bathrooms and call it clean. Sites 52 through 60 are non-reservable. Note that these sites are not shown on the map on their web site. The camp hosts made you feel that you were bothering them and were not very friendly. They have a nice trail from Blanco that goes to Bushy Point (about 3 miles round trip). Note that the trail head starts between sites 44 and 43 (there are no signs). The roads and sites within this campground are packed dirt. Verizon air card works (between 2 and 3 bars) and Verizon phone was on extended network (no problems making or receiving calls). Note that US 95 connects with US 112 only by a primitive dirt road. We would probably stop by again if we were in the area.
This park is located right on off of US-40 so there is a lot of traffic noise. The roads in the park were paved but the sites are gravel. Most of the pull through sites are long so you may not have to unhitch if just staying one night. The sites were level side-to-side but required a bit of leveling front-to-back. Electricity was very good. Verizon phone and air card work well. WI-FI is available for a fee, but we didn’t use the service. There are two newer-model washers and two dryers that are reasonably priced located in the main office. There are additional washers and dryers in a trailer within the park. There is also a small book and magazine exchange in the laundry room. There is a good-sized “activity” room that is opened until 10pm. It has a large-screen TV with comfortable chairs and a sofa, puzzle table, small tables and chairs, and two billiard tables. The temperature was very hot during our week stay and we made use of the "activity” room which was air-conditioned. The bathroom/showers were very clean but the showers were a little small. There are some long-term residents here, but their sites were tidy. The manager and rest of the staff were very friendly and helpful. Rates reflect a one week stay with 30 amp. We would definitely stay here again.
The map online depicting the campgrounds is not correct. Pedernal Loop (not Puerco Loop) has 15 Water and Electric sites. Puerco Loop has no utilities. Within the Pedernal Loop, the even numbers are not reservable, the odd numbers are. Most sites have a view of the Abiquiu Lake. The sites were fairly well spaced out, and the size of the sites varied. The bathroom/showers were very clean but the showers could have used a little more privacy. The camp hosts were one of the best we have seen in a long while. The park was very quiet: even during the weekend. Electricity was very good. Verizon phone and air card work well. We would definitely stay here again.
This park appears to be “self policing”. If there are camp hosts, we did not see them. The park officials seemed to be bored with their jobs. They seemed “put out” if you ask questions beyond their normal collection of money. No one kept track of how filled each of the campground was. Unfortunately campers were forced to circle around the campgrounds looking for a site that was not available. Riverside Campground appeared to be the noisiest of the 4 campground areas. This campground had sites for RV and for folks with tents. It also had a playground. We stayed in the Appaloosa campground. There was plenty of room for a large motor home and a boat. The utilities were placed in a logical area. Verizon air card worked well and the bathrooms were clean. We would only stay here again if it was off season and not on a weekend.
The handouts for the sites were hand drawn. These drawing did not have the site numbers and there were no indication of which sites had water and electric verses water only. Not very professional. All of the sites were paved, but not very leveled. The most leveled sites were the back-ins. The electrical pedestals were placed where it made sense to the builder not to the RV'er. Having said all that, the views were indeed excellent and a great place to camp. The bathrooms were new and spotless. Verizon air-card worked well. We would definitely come back again.
This park is located right on Hwy 54/70 so there is some traffic noise. There is a railroad track nearby but trains don’t blow their whistles and don’t run frequently so noise from the train is non-existent. The entire park is gravel. The sites are wide, level and long so you don’t have to disconnect if just staying a night. Electricity was very good. Verizon phone and air card work well. The on site wireless had a strong signal. There are two newer-model washers and two dryers but they are a little pricey. There is a small book exchange library. There is a small room with free weights, however, it is only opened when the office is opened. The office rents videos for $2. The bathroom/showers are large and were very clean. However, the water here is very hard and it would be much better if there was a water softener in place for the showers. Owners are very friendly and helpful and provide good information about the area. There is a lot to do in the area. Rates reflect a one week stay with 30 amp. We would definitely stay here again.
This small park is located about one mile from downtown Roswell. There are only 15 sites and most of them are used by contract medical personnel who work in the local hospitals. The park is right off of Hwy 380 and there some traffic noise during the day. The park is gravel with an alfafa field behind it. All sites are back-ins except for two sites. There is a small sitting room with TV, tables and chairs, book exchange and a couple of free lending videos. There is one washer and one dryer on the honor system which we did not use. There is one shower and bathroom which were clean. Verizon card and cell worked. We arrived during a day with temperatures in the 90s; electric was on the very low side with everyone running their air conditioners. Owner is onsite and is very helpful and friendly. The city is near feed lots so expect some odor depending on the direction of the wind. The park accepts discounts such as AARP, AAA and Escapees. Rates reflect the discount. We would stay here again.
This park is a fairly well thought out design. The entire park is paved. The sites are wide and long. The roads in the park are a little narrow but very do-able. There is a “restaurant” onsite that serves pizza and BBQ sandwiches at a reasonable price. There are laundry facilities in several buildings throughout the park. If you need RV repair, it can be done by a mobile repair facility in a metal Quonset hut onsite. Electricity was good. Verizon phone and aircard work well. The onsite wireless had a strong signal. We camped here in a 32’ fifth wheel. This park is one of the better parks we have been to in the area. Rates reflect a "buy 2, get one free" promotion. We would definitely stay here again.
This park is located about one mile from downtown Roswell. Most of the sites are taken by contract medical personnel who work in the local hospitals. Roads and sites are gravel. Short-term stays are placed in one of the pull-throughs sites if available. Each of the pull-throughs have a picnic table. There is a laundry facility on site. There are two showers and restrooms each for men and women. The city is near feed lots so expect some odor depending on the direction of the wind. The park residents were very friendly and kept their sites clean. Owners are on site and helpful. This park only accepted Good Sam at the time we stayed. We camped here in a 32’ fifth wheel. If we passed through again, we would stay at the other park down the street since they offer a discount and are about $10 cheaper with the discount. Otherwise, we would camp here again.
This is the closest park to Palo Duro State Park (assuming you do not want to camp in the park). It is 10 (easy) miles to the state park. Most sites are side to side hookups. This would be very crowded if the park was filled. Road noise at night was not too bad. Verizon air-card worked well. The laundry and bathrooms were very clean. We would stay here again if we were in the area.
We would agree with some of the prior comments regarding the layout of the utilities. Please note that there is no consistency in where the utilities are located. This is probably due to the fact that the park is converting from a mobile park to a RV campground. My advice would be to look at the site before driving into the spot. A number of sites have the sewer outlet in the back just beyond the concrete pad (requiring at least a 20 foot hose). The bathrooms were clean but a little tired looking. The bathroom hallway was dimly lit. We did not use the bathrooms. The laundry looked OK but we did not use them either. There was neither Wi-Fi nor cable at this park. Our Verizon air-card worked well. The park was quiet at night. We stayed there for a week and would come back again if we were in the neighborhood.
This park is the best of the three we have visited in Stonewall/Fredericksburg area (we did not visit Fredericksburg RV Park). It had rained for 3 straight days during our stay. The park roads and the sites had packed gravel so the rain rolled off and there was no flooding. The site we were in needed a little leveling but was not too bad. The sewer hook up required a twenty foot hose since it was in an unusual spot. The club house was open all the time and there were a number of rocking chairs on the porch (nice touch). There were only two washers and dryers (on the honor system). The Verizon air card worked well and there was a Wi-Fi connection in the club house what we did not use. The back-in sites were easy to get into and there were long pull thru also available. There is also a book and video exchange in the club house. We would definitely stay here again if we were in the area.
This park is primarily a park for long-term or permanent residents. Short stays or overnight guests are generally separated from these residents and given a site upfront. This is not a destination park but it is convenient for visiting San Antonio. Easy on-off to IH-35. Wal-Mart and HEB are right down the street on the frontage road. A site-seeing tour bus tour for San Antonio can be arranged to stop at the park. There is some train noise but it did not keep us up at night. There is some freeway noise but bearable. The washers and dryers were being replaced so at the time that we visited almost all of the dryers were broken. We saw the new equipment being installed the day we left so that will be a big plus. Water pressure and electricity were fine. The site we had required little leveling. The pool and Jacuzzi were very clean along with the two showers and restrooms. The staff is lukewarm in their reception. The Wi-Fi was intermittent depending on your sight and the weather. Cable TV worked fine for us. Verizon aircard and phone work well here. We would stay here again if passing through.
We stayed at this park en-route to San Antonio from Big Bend National Park. The park is small with a number of Winter Texans. Sites are oddly configured. Sewer and water hookups are oddly placed on some sites and require long extensions. Roads and sites are gravel with small patches of grass around. Park roads are narrow. However, the manager does a good job of trying to match the rig to the site. Bathrooms are outdated and could use more lighting but are very clean. Don’t be surprised by the old-style wooden doors on showers and toilets that you see when you enter the room. There is a small kitchen with tables that is used for potlucks and other events. We used the room to surf the web. Small laundry with about 4 washers and dryers. Wi-Fi is free and good. If you don’t need a FHU or cable, be sure to ask for a W&E or no cable. You are charged for the extras like cable. We would stay here again.
We stayed at this park based upon the reviews we read. The park is part of the 12,000 acre Stillwell Ranch. We stayed in a W&E only site. The “campground” is basically a very large gravel parking lot with side-by-side hookups. The W&E sites are located across the street from the store. The very limited FHU sites are next to the store and are also site-by-side hookups on gravel. Electric was so-so. Our surge guard protector kicked in and shut power to the rig twice. Water pressure was low, so much so that you didn’t need a pressure regulator. Free Wi-Fi is available in the store area and was very good. No Verizon cell phone access. The Stillwell family is very welcoming and accommodating. People have been coming here for years for that reason and not because of the campground or its facilities. There are scheduled lectures given by the park service since the family has a very tight relationship with the park; guests provide musical entertainment; a local rancher and archaeologist may also give a lecture. We arrived four days before the start of spring break. The W&E sites were nearly empty. However, the W&E sites filled up with the start of spring break which made it feel very crowded especially with side-by-side hookups. Nevertheless, it is a good place to stay based upon the location. Avoid spring break or other major holidays and you’ll be fine. We would camp here again if we were in the area.
We were told this state park is one of the best in Texas and we were not disappointed. We were in Site 14 with full hook up (FHU). There are two sections with FHU – one with more shade than the other. The FHU sites are all fairly long pull-throughs and much roomier than the water & electric (W&E) sites which are all back-in. We initially took a W&E site but the road to the site was narrow with low overhanging branches making turning around and backing in tricky. Electric was very good. Campground was quiet. There are no laundry facilities. Wi-Fi is available within the park at Indian Lodge and was very good. No Verizon cellphone access in the campground area. For cell phone access, you drive four miles into Ft. Davis or up the scenic Skyline Drive. We would definitely stay here again.
This park is conveniently located within the city of Las Cruces. It was formerly a trailer park but has been converted to an RV park. There are only about three, single-wide trailers left. Most people who stay here are snowbirds. There are some folks who live here long-term. The park is well kept. The roads are gravel and very wide, making it very easy to back-in. There are some pull-through sites for overnight stays. Sites are gravel, some have cement pads and most have a picnic table. Although the park mentions a clubhouse, it really is just a small trailer with a couple of tables and a book exchange with outdated books. There is a small, clean laundry room and 4 individual rooms each with a shower and toilet. Verizon cell phone and Wi-Fi works well. Did not use the park’s Wi-Fi. The train tracks are about 1 or 2 miles away. There is some train noise but it is not that bad. There is a nearby fire department and you’ll hear sirens more than you’ll hear train whistles. Other than that, the place is quiet at night. A Save-Mart grocery store is within walking distance, a BBQ restaurant is across the street and Wal-Mart is less then a mile away. We would stay here again.
If you are looking for a quiet, remote, laid-back kind of place to stay, then this is it. It is located about 23 miles from the freeway with little else around. The sites are huge. The owner makes you feel welcomed and there is such a pride in ownership at this place. She has a vision for this park and it will be interesting to see how it develops in the coming years. If you hike, there is some hiking in nearby Cave Creek which is about 16 miles away in the Chiricahua Mountains. If you like birding, I understand it is a great birding area at the right time of year. And with little development and lights, the sky is an astronomer’s delight. The roads are lightly traveled so I would assume that biking would be nice too. There are few amenities in the park at this time: no showers, no restrooms. Make sure you come here with plenty of supplies. She tries to put together weekly potluck dinners for the guests. We did not watch TV so cannot comment on reception. No cell phone service (Verizon) but you can make free calls to anywhere from the office phone. Wi-Fi is best at the RV sites near the office. They are working on a new contract for Wi-Fi that will work throughout the park. It's very pet friendly. The rate reflects Passport America discount. We would absolutely stay here again.
We stayed here using our Passport America discount. Our site was one of the smaller sites. However, it was level and had enough room for our slideouts. Sites around the lake are considered “premium” sites. However, the lake is home to many ducks who wander around the sites making a mess so something to keep in mind. Rather than having one big shower and bathroom area, there are several buildings scattered throughout the park. Although dated looking, they were clean. The place was very quiet. We would stay here again.
Our last stay here was in January 2008. We stayed again enroute to our home. The bathrooms, showers and lawn areas are still very well maintained. However, the surfaces of the 13 pull through sites are suffering quite a bit of deterioration despite the park being fairly new (approximately 4 years old). The permanent residents, who are normally located in a separate area of the park, appear to be encroaching on the part of the park normally reserved for the traveler (e.g., daily or weekly stay). Having said all this, I would still stay here again for its enroute convenience.
This park is about eleven miles from Portland. The length of the sites is very long and can accommodate a large Class A without disconnecting the toad. However, the sites are narrow - under 11 feet wide thus making it difficult to step out of your rig without stepping on the grass. The park "streets" are also 11 feet wide. Although the streets are one way, it is still tricky driving through the park. It is tight! Bathrooms are absolutely spotless and have plenty of hot water. There are no amenities (e.g., clubhouse, pool) - just a spot to park. In the summer, we heard that the ratio of "dailies" to permanent long term is about 50-50. During the winter, the ratio may be higher. If you like to walk, there are walking paths right outside the park, shopping malls within a mile and direct bus service into Portland. We would stay here again.
This park has a number of negatives that prevents me from recommending it. 1) There are only about 9 FHU and they were all taken by long-term RVers. The rest of the sites are water and electric, a few of the sites have cable. There is only one price for RVers no matter what type of site you get. When we called, the owner led us to believe that we would get a FHU and we did not. 2) The owner allows his two dogs to run freely throughout the campground, barking and defecating all over the grass. Watch where you step. 3) We happen to stay during an event in Joseph. The owner allows tent camping and crammed as many people as possible into the grassy area. 4) The owner encourages you to dump your grey water onto your site to help keep it green. 5) The bathrooms and showers, while clean, were very rustic. The toilets wobble and the dividers and shower curtains don’t provide much privacy. Finally, there are no rules in this campground: nothing about quiet hours, etc. The owner has a laissez-faire attitude regarding rules. We camped here in a 30’ rig, and if you can guess, would not camp here again.
This park is conveniently located two blocks from downtown Joseph. It only has five sites so you won’t find it listed in either Woodalls or Trailer Life since they require a minimum of ten sites to be listed in their guide. All five sites are gravel back-ins with FHU including cable. Each site has a picnic table. The WiFi signal is very weak and not usable but Verizon phone and aircard work here. There are no amenities, not even a bathroom so the daily rate of $25 is rather high compared to other places but the weekly rate of $120 makes it reasonable; monthly rate is $300. There is one “overflow” site which is water and electric only, on grass; rate is $20/day. The owners live in their home across from the park. The park is very quiet. We would stay again.
This park is very well designed and built in 2006. Sewer hookups and water are on both sides so you can pull in either way. Bathrooms and showers were spotless. Pool well maintained. There is a medium sized meeting room that wasn't being rented out that we used to lounge around. RV Park is fully paved with cement pads, tables and a grassy area at each site. Sites are divided into Zones. Zone 3 is back-in for smaller (30-35') RVs. Zone 1 sites are "suppose" to have a view of the river which isn't very scenic in my opinion to warrant the extra bucks. We chose Zone 2. The resort sits at a major truck junction so there is some road noise throughout the day starting at 6am. However, at night, everything is quiet. Rate reflects a one week stay with Escapees discount. We would camp here again if we were in the area.
This campground is a City Park. It is located half-mile west of Junction 2 and SR 37 right behind the Kootenai Chamber of Commerce and Rousauers Grocery Store. It is dry camping; water available in the park to fill tanks; RV dump is $3 and only open 8-10am and 6-8pm. Shaded. Right next to a nice city park and cemetery. There is a host on site. A good, safe place for an overnight stay.
This RV park primarily caters to Square Dancers, but non-dancers are welcome (we are none dancers). The owners were extremely friendly and everyone made us feel welcome even though we are not dancers. Sites are on gravel in a forested area. Cable was available for additional charge. WiFi available in the rec room. Verizon phone and aircard work in the campground. Campground is an easy 8 mile drive to Missoula. Had a nice time in this park. We would definitely stay here again.
The campground is good for one night. The sites are terraced with a steep road that you have to traverse in order to leave the park. There were a number of permanent residents. Sites are dirt. The bathrooms, although clean, are very "tired" and dated. The men's urinals was a trough! Place is quiet. No Verizon access in many of the sites. Wi-Fi only works in the office. We would not stay there again.
This campground is run by the City of Columbus. Campground is free. It is adjacent to the Yellowstone River and the city’s golf course. There are two sections to the campground and we stayed in the back section. The back section has larger sites, vault toilets, a small boat ramp. Some sections of the campground roads are rutted but passable. If you camp in the back section, a 35’ is probably the maximum size. Campground is patrolled regularly by local police. We would stay again.
Accepted Passport America for all days of stay. Sites are fairly level. Big rig friendly. Gravel sites and roads. 15 easy miles to Butte. Extra daily charge for electricity ($2 for 30amp). Adjacent to Fairmont Hotsprings. No train noise except for the occasional Copper Express tourist train which does not rain at night. Small but comfortable club house with pool table (fee), a couple of video games for the kids, book exchange, and a couple of sofas and rockers. Shower were absolutely clean. WiFi very weak but there is a computer in the club house free of charge. We would stay here again.
We attended the Escapees RV Escapade event and agree with the previous post from July 2008. We stayed in the "campground" called Reata with Water and Electric only. This was one of the closer campgrounds and was within walking distance of all the seminar rooms and theater. A good place for a rally.
This campground is Passport America, however, they just changed owners and only accept three days with a 50% discount. They also have other discounts such as Good Sam, AAA, etc, which are applicable for only three days also. We were in the back section which was opened two years ago. It is gravel and many of the site were steeply terraced. Some RVs literally could not get into the terraced sites. Be aware of what site you will be placed in. The grass was not mowed in the for the two weeks we were there (and we requested they mow since the ticks were pretty bad during out stay). Wi-Fi was strong. Bathrooms were clean. Weekly BBQs cost $8.50 and you must provide a side dish. Pool and hot tub were OK. We would stay here again but only if we were in the front section which is side-by-side hookups on grass.
This park contains two separate campgrounds: Soldier Creek and Red Cloud. Soldier Creek sites have electric sites only and sites that are both shaded and non-shaded while Red Cloud, the newer of the two, has FHU and is completely out in the open. We stayed at Solder Creek. The sites in Soldier Creek varied in length, width, shade and non-shade. The park is on property that was once a military base and the state has made good use of the property. Some of the restored and reconstructed buildings are open on the weekend. There are also two museums on site. This is a good park for families as there are many planned activities such as hayrides, breakfasts, boating, games, fishing, etc (although some of the events were rather pricy in my opinion). This area is also great for bicycling. In addition to the RV campsite fee, you must purchase a daily park pass. We got Broadband access on our Verizon air card and our Verizon cell phone also worked fine. We would stay here again.
This park is located approximately 6 miles from downtown Custer. It offers something for every type of “camper” - It is a horse camp and RV park but there are separate areas for each. There are also a few sites under the pine trees for tents and a few rooms for horse campers who don’t have sleeping accommodations. The owners have owned the land for several years but the park has been in place for only two years. Owners live on site. It is the hospitality of the owners that make this park special. There were many repeat visitors while we were here. Restrooms and showers were immaculate. There is only one washer and dryer so you might have to go to town to do laundry for multiple loads. Sites can accommodate any size rig length including slides. However, the sites are all open and have no shade. We were in Site 1 which wasn’t very level and had to do a bit of leveling. The park is convenient to many activities in the Black Hills. We got National access on our Verizon air card. The park’s Wi-Fi worked well. With our Over the Air GT, we could only get 3 TV channels. Our Verizon cell phone worked fine.
This park is a nice park to use as a base to explore Scottsbluff and Gering. You have three types of sites to choose from with three different prices: W/E only, Full Hookup, and Full Hookup with cable. We selected W/E only as there was a dump on site. Lots of green grass and lots of space between sites in the area we were parked. Each site has a pad that is 11’ wide and has a picnic table. A Good Sam discount is offered. There are a couple of quirks about the park. The roads have no directional arrows on them so it is not clear initially which way to drive on the roads. For a newby, this information is important. Second, the streets are very narrow and pulling out of your pull-through site is a challenge. The streets are 14-1/2 feet wide and not angled properly from the actually site itself. This will require driving over the grass. Finally, no staff on site – self check in. Nevertheless, a beautiful park – away from highway and train. We would come back again.
This park was the second city park we have used. You basically get what you pay for – the cost is $15 per night for water and electric. If you stay a week, you get a substantial discount. The water spigots in some sites did not work and from what we have been told by other visitors, have not worked for at least two years. Maintenance on the RV park was not a priority. The priority was the golf course which was next to the campground. If you plan to see some of the surrounding sites, this is the best location and the cheapest. It is quiet at night with hardly any train noise. The golf course is one side and the North Platte is on the other. We would stay here again.
This park is located off of I-80 but far enough from the interstate and the railroad so you don’t get much noise from either. It appears that a good part of the park is set aside for permanent residents. However, the sites and trailers occupying them were all very tidy. There were some high-end fifth wheel trailers in the permanent sites. The sites are close but they can accommodate any size rig including rigs with slides on both sides. There is a laundry room with new washers and dryers. There is a book exchange and a small store.
This park is located one mile from downtown Torrey. It only has about 12 spaces and is a no-frills park. The sites are small and I would say that a 32’ rig with slides on one side is what will fit in the sites in this park. The price was right and the park accepts Escapees and Coast-to-Coast discounts. The owners are very friendly and are always working around the park. We would stay here again.
This park is a good value since it accepts Passport America with no restrictions. The other park in the area that accepts Passport America will not accept it on the weekends, and quite frankly, didn’t look too much better than this park for double the price. We stayed here for one week. As others have mentioned, the site and parking are very tight. The owner tries to accommodate everyone and as a result, often puts RVs in spots that are way too small making maneuvering around the parking lot difficult. However, despite being sandwiched together, the park was very quiet. No noise from other travelers or from the highway. There are a couple of long-term residents but that is not an issue for me. There are two washers and two dryers onsite but if you don’t like them, you can head downtown to the laundromat. Dust and windstorms seem to be a problem in this area and you should expect your rig will get dusty and dirty since the park is gravel and dirt and is next to a stable. We did not experience any odors from the stable next door since it is still cool outside.
This is a small campground with mostly permanent residents, or folks who lease out a site and use it as a vacation destination. “Park Models” would not be a word I would use to describe these permanent/vacation sites, since all of the rigs onsite were fifth wheels or motorhomes. We stayed here enroute during our trip. The park accepts Passport America and is located on a quiet street. We had a pullthru which was perfectly adequate for our 30’ fifth wheel. The park was not officially opened, so there was only electric and sewer available and we were the only travelers in the park. (We called ahead and were told to fill up with water before arriving). Consider eating at the Mexican restaurant onsite. Food is homemade and delicious.
This RV park is basically a paved parking lot with hookups. The sites are tight ,but do-able, and I can attest to this since I am new to RVing and could maneuver around. However, you should definitely walk to your assigned site before driving to it with your rig, to make sure it is suitable for your rig. If you call ahead and make a reservation with your credit card, then when you arrive, simply pull into the park and use the red phone at the entrance to let the desk know your arrival. You will then be given a site. If you don’t like the site, then you can just use the phone again and tell them what site you want. We were told that we had to check in at the desk when we arrived, but we just drove to the park instead. The sites are about 46’ long and most of the rigs extended beyond the site. If you want a site with hookups, if you want a casino and to use the swimming pools, then stay here. If you don’t need hookups, then there is a large parking lot across the street that could be used for overnight parking. In addition, the casinos CasaBlanca, Virgin and Oasis are all owned by the same company. Virgin, however, no longer has hookups, but just dry camping behind building 9.
This park is an excellent state park. There are two campgrounds. One campground is called Atatl and has two sections. One section has electric and water, the other section is dry. (There are faucets for water at the site but they are not usable for filling your tank.) There are showers in the Atatl campground. The showers located in the hookup section are pay showers while the showers in the dry camping area are free. The other campground down the road, called Arch Campground, is dry camping and has a few sites for large RVs, although most of the sites are better suited for tent camping. We did not see any showers at the Arch Campground. Before entering either campground, there is water and dump available. We stayed at the non-electric Atatl campground. The sites are surrounded by red rock and quite scenic. The campground is a good base for exploring Valley of Fire. The drawbacks of the park as I see it are that you should expect your RV will get full of fine red sand. If there is a windstorm, as there was when we were here, then this hampers sitting outside and enjoying the scenery. None of the sites are reservable so you might consider calling ahead to check availability.
We spent one night in this park on our way home. We parked here in our 30’ fifth wheel. The park is conveniently located off of I-5 in Patterson, in an area where finding an RV park is difficult. There are several food establishments within walking distance (KFC, Jack-in-the-box, Denny’s). I would recommend this park with these three caveats. 1) The sites in the park are very small and the roads in the park are very narrow. The narrow roads make it hard for you to navigate your truck to back in. The roads are simply too narrow. However, there are a number of spots that look like they are easier to back in than others. You can also park in any of the 13 pull throughs as long as your rig and tow/truck are at least 45’ long. 2) With each site, you have a gravel spot for your rig and a teeny-weeny paved spot for your truck or tow vehicle. You might be able to squeeze a smaller truck or tow vehicle onto this paved spot but then you may not be able to open your slides if they are on the same side as your paved spot. Not sure who designs these RV Parks. The owner said they have had some damage because of folks driving over the lawn or into the electrical posts or water. Well, probably because the park roads/sites are too tight! 3) You may have some problems with mud and your RV tires sinking in with some of the gravel spots, so choose your spot carefully. Nevertheless, we would stay here again as it is a good stop off before heading into or from the Bay Area.
We stayed here for two nights while passing through the area. The park is located outside the city limits with easy access to Highway 58. The railroad is nearby but the trains hardly ran at all. The sites are average with many pullthroughs. There are a number of permanent residents but they are clustered together in a different area then the folks traveling through and there didn't appear to be "junk" rigs. The park was formerly an orange grove and the owners have left a lot of the orange trees in place. You can borrow an orange picker and pick all the oranges you'd like when in season. The showers were spacious and clean if you choose to use them. The pool was opened but not heated. There is a lodge with large-screen TV and pool table which we used each evening and were the only people there. Coffee and donuts are available in the morning. The one drawback was that the sites were sandy and it was hard not to track the sand into the rig. Be sure to visit the fruit stand just around the block which has a large variety of nuts and fruit for purchase. I would stay here again if passing through.
We camped here for an RV Rally. The park is very new so everything about it is clean and fresh looking. There is a small swimming pool, jacuzzi, two dog runs, and game room. There are also club houses to rent for rallies. We had site 124 which was a pullthrough site in the "upper" level. In walking through the lower level sites, some of the sites were small and crowded. Some of the lower level sites are back-to-back. some sites looked as if you might have trouble extending your awning or slides. Be specific with your site selection if possible. The park borders Hwy 46 and the noise from the highway is unbearable. This noise is a very big drawback. Bring earplugs in order to sleep at night. Trucks barrel down 24 hours a day and use their jake/exhaust brakes. Gets on your nerves. In addition, the prices are steep without the rally discount. I might stay here again. It will be interesting to see how the park holds up in a couple of years. The choice of trees planted so close to each site could pose a problem as these trees mature.
If you want to be really close to Monterey and the surrounding towns, the fairgrounds is the place to stay. However, we're talking very basic. The sites in the "upper level" are paved and "parking lot" style and straight back in. There are some sites in the grassy area and this is the area where we stayed since we did not have the experience to back into the paved sites. In the grassy area, there is some road noise from Fairground Road but it is quiet enough at night. The park is in the flight path to Monterey airport which houses private jets so mornings (6am) and evenings (5pm) were noisy with lots of planes buzzing by. We weren't in the campground in the afternoon to comment on the noise during the day. A washer and dryer were recently installed. We would stay again since we prefer the easy access to the surrounding areas not to mention the cost.
Pros: For California, this park is inexpensive for a full hookup (sewer, water, electric). BART train to San Francisco is nearby. The town of Pleasanton is a good town to visit with plenty of restaurants. The long term and short term RVers are separate campgrounds. Cons: This is fairground camping and does not have any "atmosphere" and is more parking-lot style camping. However, it is great for a stopover or if your destination is San Francisco. The place is quiet.
We stayed in this park because we were taking RV driving lessons in the area for two days. As a result, we were gone most of the day. The park is a former KOA and an older park. It has a pool and jacuzzi which were nicely maintained. Sites seemed close together but manageable for a newbie driver. Front desk staff were friendly. We saw a number of other employees working the grounds, trimming trees, etc. We would stay here again if we were in the area.
The condition of this park can be described as neglected or in a state of "arrested decay." While there may be hundreds of campsites in the park, it appears that many of the sites have been abandoned and are not maintained. The park is very popular with ATV users. There is direct access to Tahoe National Forest from the park via ATV. With the opening a hunting season, there were also a lot of hunters staying at the campground. The roar from traffic on I-80 was extremely loud despite having a site in the back. Trees need trimming, limbs too low. Staff did not respond to our request for trimming around our rig. Also, mid-week when the entire park was virtually empty, we came back to our rig after a day out and had a Class A right in the site next to us despite the entire loop being empty! We camped in Loop H. I won't go back.
We stayed here one night after picking up our new fifth wheel. The place was very hectic but if you ask, they will try to put you in a site away from the pool, game room, etc. The sites were tight with low hanging branches. Being new to RVing, we asked for an 'escort' in and out and the owners were very accommodating. There seemed to be plenty of staff around. The front desk and check-in were efficient and friendly. Generally, this wasn't a place I would normally stay in but was fine for one night.
