So very mixed feelings on this place. On the one hand the park is gorgeous. Lovely beaches, pretty lake, tons of hiking trails. On the other hand the sites are mostly terrible. Many are small, very (very) unlevel, several butt up right against one another. Interior roads are also treed and very tight. We had to walk our 40-footer through the lower loop to get into our site, squeezing through trees and turns...and in the end we probably had one of only a handful of sites large and level enough to take us. The rest are really much better suited to tenters or small trailers. Lastly it's super-crowded and you hear jet planes from the nearby base shooting over the area all day long. We enjoyed hiking the area, but won't camp here again due to the poor site quality. 4 bars of Verizon 4G LTE in camp.

Really nice County Park on the bluff overlooking Dungeness Spit. Sites are mostly heavily treed (a select few are sunny), and mostly nicely spacious (a few exceptions) but with good separation and privacy all-around. Road in Loop 1 (non-reservation) is tighter than Loop 2 (mostly reservation), but both are do-able by big rigs. We camped here in 40-foot MH. Views from the bluff trail are outstanding and you can walk directly to the Dungeness Spit and Lighthouse. Easy access to everything in Sequim. No hookups. 2 bars Verizon 4G LTE. Would definitely stay here again.

We stayed in the dry-camping are which was nice and relaxed. It's basically a big field with many places to park and only a short walk from the beach (right over the dune). Several "sites" have picnic table and fire pit, but you can park anywhere you wish. Road is bumpy and parts of the field are soft so big rigs need to scope out ahead and use pads under their jacks. The park does not take reservations, but I do recommend calling ahead to ask if there are any big conferences or meetings happening during your stay. They had a big conference where the entire place was completely booked out right before we came. We knew this since we checked beforehand, but others didn't and told us they'd been turned away. We thoroughly enjoyed our time here and would certainly come back.

What a gorgeous location this is! Miles of beach, nature trail, sunsets....all steps from your campsite. The park is older, heavily treed. Beach-facing sites are more open/sunny and several have direct water views. Sites are well-spaced, but small and uneven. We camped here in a 40-foot MH, which was not easy, but do-able if you are careful and book well ahead to snag one of only 9 sites rated over 40-foot in length. However be prepared to brush trees and do some back/forth to get into your site. In general this campground is much better-suited for smaller rigs. Interestingly enough we got 2 bars of 4G LTE on our Verizon MiFi and also had good reception on our Straight Talk (Verizon-based) phone so look like towers have been upgraded in this area. Loved this area. Would definitely come back!

What a fabulous surprise this place was! Large (very long & spacious) pull-through sites with water-facing views at the front. Two sewer dumps (one on each side) allowing both Class A & 5th wheels to park facing the view. The entire campground is impeccably clean & well-kept. First beach is literally steps from your RV. Full strength Verizon LTE. Overall can't think of a single thing to "ding". Not sure what happened with the folks who rated this place poorly last year, but perhaps it's changed management? We loved this spot and would most definitely stay again!!

This is probably the nicest RV park in Westport, but it's still quite tight. When not full it's a relaxing spot with grassy sites and a big, green area in the back near the tents (great for doggie), but when full you can almost hand your morning coffee to your neighbor. Good, clean restrooms, laundry, and friendly hosts. Wi-Fi was OK (mostly good, but does get overloaded with campers). Lots of mosquitoes in the tenting area, but that's just the season. Easy drive to the marina. Lots of good sightseeing in the area.

Nice park, manicured sites and great location walking distance to the Air Museum. The only reason it didn't get a 10/10 from me was because of restrictive dog rules. If you have more than one dog the *combined* weight of both must be under 50 lbs. Also the park prohibits "attack" breeds which is pretty standard, but this includes Blue Heelers...the first time I've ever seen that breed lumped in that category. I haven't seen these rules mentioned in other reviews and thought it important to point out for dog owners. Otherwise no complaints at all. It's a lovely park. Very busy turnover so book ahead if you plan to stay here. Our rate reflects Good Sam's 10% discount.

This is a pretty, dispersed camping location. Several sites of various sizes around either the paved road or dirt roads. Be very careful of soft sand down by the shoreline. Although this is listed almost everywhere on the Internet as a free campground there is actually an official fee of $4/night ($22/week) to stay here (50% off with senior pass). No indication (at all) of this at 20-Mile, but if you drive back to Sportsman's Beach you'll see the pay station & fee info listed there. Good Verizon signal & very pretty lake views. On site trash & pit toilet. Some highway noise from 95 depending on where you park.

Tamarack is the crumbled remains of an old campground. It has ~20 semi-paved sites of various sizes (and levelness) both back-in and pull-throughs. Most would be suitable for 30', but a a few can fit big rigs (we camped in 40'). There is a clean on-site pit toilet and trash, but no dump or water. Most sites list this campground as free, but it is in fact a pay site. There is no pay info or pay station at the Tamarack proper, but if you drive to Sportsman's Beach you will see a self-pay and fee info that clearly indicates Tamarack (and 20-mile) cost $4/night or $22/week. The area does accept Senior Pass for 50% off. There is honestly no way to know this without driving to Sportsman's and reading the sign there. Great views of the lake, but you are close to Hwy 95 so you will have road noise. You can also camp closer to the shoreline, but be aware the ground gets VERY soft very fast. Excellent Verizon signal.

Well this is just a gorgeous spot. Remote, natural, lots of wildlife, birds, hiking trails, water/beach. Excellent visitor center, historic ranch and herds of free-roaming bison. Sites are huge (enormous), paved, flat with gorgeous views of the beach/water and nice paved "sitting areas" with picnic table, shelter and fire-pit. Only big ding? The gnats!!! We were here in late-April and the gnats had just hatched. They are terrible and last until temps top 90. LOVE this spot, but ask about the gnat-situation before you come!! Sites are $10, but there is a $3 one-time fee to enter the island.

Another lovely OR State Park. Nice paved sites (Electric/water only) with decent separation & privacy. Many sites big enough for big rigs. Right next to very nice lake with large grassy day-use area, swim area and hiking trail (around the lake). Short drive to Umpqua Lighthouse/Winchester and hiking on the dunes (the fabulous John Dellenback trail is only ~1 mile down 101). Only real ding is some road noise on West side of park.

Our rate reflects monthly winter rate. I would sum this up as a so-so RV park in an AWESOME location. Yes, it's pretty much a parking lot and yes there's not a lot of amenities, but the location is perfect. You've got space to walk around De Anza Cove, access to the beach, direct walking access to Mission Bay Park and Mission Bay Golf Course and you're close to all of San Diego. If you've got a doggie there are some Bay restrictions (you can walk in Mission Bay and the beach after 4PM (in winter) or before 9AM), but you're only 5 mins drive from all-day off-leash pooch heaven Fiesta Island plus maybe 10 mins from off-leash Ocean Beach. There's no other RV park in San Diego that I know where you can get that close to a dog-friendly beach. Sites are asphalt but big enough for any size rig. I'm not clear I'd be happy paying the full $$ rate and I definitely wouldn't bother paying the premium for a bay or beach view, but if you come mid-week, stay in the regular sites and use Passport America or take the monthly rate this place is a great all-round deal.

Really loved this campground. As others have said the road getting up here (Hwy 35) can be windy, narrow and bumpy but the campground itself is very spacious and big-rig friendly (we're 40-foot and had plenty of room to spare). There are actually 2 campgrounds within 1 mile of each other around Lake Roberts: the lower one is called Upper End and is on level w/ the lake, but no views of it. The upper one is Mesa and is overlooking the lake (and some sites have views of the lake). Sites are large, flat paved with lots of space and separation, picnic table, grill and fire-pit. There's a selection of electric and non-hookup. No showers, but flush toilets are on-site. DUMP station available at Mesa Campground. Lots of nearby hiking and a good base to explore Gila Forest and the Cliff Dwellings. It's almost totally empty during the week, but fills up on the week-end. Overall we loved the place and would definitely come back. (NOTE: NO Verizon coverage here, nor further up at Gila Cliff Dwellings)

Have to admit we loved this park. Yes, the bathrooms are a little outdated and yes the roads are tight, but oh man. The beach was just gorgeous!! The water-pressure and temp was good (in the showers) and by taking our time we were fine getting our 40-footer around the roads (the roads are definitely not for the faint of heart if you have a big-rig however). Sites are decent although they can vary a bit in how firm they are (we bought planks w/ us to put under the motorhome wheels and make sure we didn't sink any). The beach is sublime and so very peaceful and the very reason we'd come back and stay. Also, extremely dog-friendly area (included on the beach).

When we arrived at this campground we immediately decided to stay longer than planned. Hillman Ferry is one of the most developed National Forest campground I’ve ever seen. The sites are nice, level, large hard gravel pads and there’s a complete selection from full hook-up to primitive, heavily wooded to fully open lake-view. By far the prettiest (in our opinion) sites are the water-front ones in Section C1 and C2, although all the sites are decent. A portion of the sites are auctioned off for the season each year (and occupied by long-term campers) but the prime sites are kept open and reservable. The area is fairly quiet during the week, but does tend to fill-up on the weekend so book ahead if you want a lake view. We parked here in a 40-footer and had no problem navigating the roads or sites along the C loops. We spent some lovely days here watching the sunset over the lake, hiking and playing in the water with our doggie.

Absolutely loved this park. Came for 2 days and ended up staying for a week. Sites are large and level with a selection of full hook-up (loop#1) to electric (30Amp), water and primitive. Lots of selection from fully wooded to more open. Nice separation between the sites. Facilities were spotless and there's lots of hiking in the area. You're right next to Byrd Lake which has fishing and even a restaurant on-site. Also, you're only a few miles from Crossville which has everything you need. Really enjoyed our stay and would come back in a heartbeat.

Nice little stop-over close to Hwy 50. The sites are hard-packed gravel and overall pretty flat. Selection of reservable and electric sites. Good shade trees and nice separation between campers. The surrounding park has a couple of lakes with fishing and a selection of hiking trails so it's a lovely natural setting and great for a few days stop, but there's not much else around. The nearest very small town is Knob Noster, otherwise you're in farmland. Central dump and potable water, free hot showers, plus there's a laundry on-site (only $0.75/load). We'd stop again if we were coming through.

The campground is in a lovely setting. Loess Hills is a heavily wooded area on rolling hills close to Sioux City and has lots of nicely maintained hiking trails. The sites, on the other hand, are a bit odd, and the campground is really geared mostly to tenters. There's 8 sites on either side of the drive-in road which are all on one big grass area (so, no real separation between sites...it's just a grass parking lot). Only one side has electric. We're a 40-footer and just (barely) fit in site #8 (30 amp). A smaller rig came in after us and had to park at an angle to fit. The biggest electric site is #12 which is set up and away from the others. The rest of the sites are for tenters only. So, if you have a big-rig #8 and #12 are really the only options, and you have to be comfortable driving your rig on smaller roads to get there. It's one of the least-visited state parks in Iowa, however, so most of the time we were there we were alone which was nice. Overall it is a pretty setting, but a bit of a squeeze for big-rigs. There's central water, but no dump station. Showers and flush toilets available. Note it is very buggy this Aug. after record rains in July 2010, but I gather from the rangers this is unusual.

We loved this campground! This is a green oasis beautifully situated right next to the Missouri River. We camped on North side and the sites are large, level paved sites (easily accessible to big-rigs) with fire-pit and bench. Most of the sites have electric (50 amp), views of the river, and nice separation between campers. The grounds are grassy and maintained beautifully with plenty of shade trees. There's flush toilets and showers. Also, central dump station w/ potable water (up the hill opposite the campground). Final bonus is access to swimming in the river at several locations (the river was literally 10 steps from our RV and we went for several dips each day). During the week this place is completely empty, but I gather it fills up on the week-end. We'd definitely come back here!

Overall this is a great campground. It has large, dirt, level sites (easily accessible to big-rigs) most with shade and electric and good separation between campers. There's central potable water, flush toilets and free showers too. You can walk to Stockade Lake from the campground and there's a large grassy area w/ playground on-site for the kids. There's no real hiking trails from the campground, but you're within driving distance of everything in Custer State Park. The only negative is that this place books up FAST in the summer. We booked a month and a half ahead of time and got the only site left (a non-electric, thus the $18 price, electric sites cost $22). Many campers we talked to had booked 6-8 months ahead. Nearest dump is Sinclair Gas Station in Custer ($4 to dump). NOTE: There is a non-resident and park entry fee ontop of the nightly camping fee.

This is a primitive forest park 6 miles West of Custer (half-way between Custer and Jewel Cave). There's no hook-ups and only pit-toilets, but it's peacefully located in thick forest. Sites are dirt, mostly level with bench and fire-pit. Many will accommodate big-rigs, but some are a tight tad or too small. The roads are also fairly narrow with a lot of trees so it all depends how comfortable you are negotiating turns. We have a 40-footer and did fine, but we did squeeze a bit to get into our site. Someone else came in a 45-footer and did manage to get in after 40 min's of effort. So, it's possible to get big-rigs in here. The surrounding forest is thick and has wild raspberries in summer. It's pet-friendly and you can walk the dog in the forest, but there's no trails. Sites are reservable online. There are water spigots around the campground, but no dump-station (nearest dump is Sinclair gas station in Custer where you can dump for $4).

I agree with the other reviewers. This is a gorgeous natural location (set around 2 lakes with miles of fabulous hiking trails), but the sites are generally quite primitive. So, I give it a 10 for location, but a 4 for sites. There's a lot of variation both in site quality, road quality and site size. The Camp Russell sites are curved pull-throughs that are mostly level, but not much of a view. The loops furthest from the entrance (Granite Point loop and Crystal Lake) have larger, decent sites, but many of the loops close to the entrance are small, uneven or the roads narrow and steep. If you have a big-rig I suggest unhooking and driving around the lake in a smaller car to determine access and site. With a bit of time you can find yourself a sweet location, but it does take some driving (we were in a 40-footer and found a decent site after some looking). This is dog-friendly area and lots of space to walk doggie (just can't go into the lake). Central dump and water available. Pit-toilets only.

This was a stop-over location for us between Cheyenne and the Black Hills, and as such worked perfectly. The sites are large, level, gravel pull-throughs with a slice of well-trimmed green and a bench between campers. There's a laundromat, Wi-Fi, spotless showers and full-hookups and everything works as it should. The owner was nice and gave us a bunch of info on South Dakota. Overall a good, basic campground, but not much else. No extra frills or amenities and the town is small (~10 blocks). So, I wouldn't go here for a destination vacation, but it works perfectly as a stop-over.

Totally agree with the other reviewers. This was a gem of a find! We stayed for 2 nights at this park while getting our RV serviced in nearby Loveland, but could easily have stayed much longer. All sites are paved pull-though and have electric hookups, bench and grill. Can easily accommodate the largest rigs. Flush toilets and coin-operated showers. The surrounding park has miles of hiking & biking trails, plus swimming, lake activities etc. It was only a 5-min walk from our site to the lake. Note that the park does have a $7/night entrance fee that goes on top of the reservation. Totally pet-friendly and gorgeous surroundings. We'd definitely come back.

This is a huge park. They have literally acres of space and cater to both horse-campers, RV'ers and tents. The setting is gorgeous right smack in the middle of a mountain valley with Rocky Mountain National Park on one side and National Forest on the other (you can literally hike into either directly from the park). The sites are on the rustic side (dirt only) and vary a lot in size/level and the park has been devastated by the Pine Beetle so not a lot of trees left (in fact most of the trees around Grand Lake are dead). But, there's plenty to do: horse-riding, playground, chuck wagon breakfast, hiking, animal farm (where you can "pet" piglets, sheep, donkey etc.). They're also extremely dog-friendly and you can walk your dog for miles in the park and around the National Forest. Plus, you can play in the river. We would definitely come back.

This is a gorgeous setting (right in the middle of National Forest at 8,600 feet). Sites are dirt and vary a bit in size and levelness. There's a handfull of spaces for big-rigs (we have a 40' Class A), but I'd say the majority of the sites are better suited to tenters and smaller rigs. Fire-pit, grill and bench at each site. Pretty forest views and good space between campers. Half the sites are reservable, the others are first-come-first-serve. Potable water, but NO dumpstation here. No hookups. Pit toilets only. Overall a a primitive campground in a lovely and very relaxing forest setting. We'd definitely go back.

Overall this is a nice state park. It's a slice of green in an otherwise very, very dry area. Each site has level, paved pads although they were a bit of a squeeze for our 40 foot-er. There is a lot of grass and shade/trees between each site. There are good views of the golf course from several sites. The park is dog-friendly, but you can't walk on the surrounding golf-course so the greenery is not for doggie. There are no hookups here, but there is a central dump and water. Showers are a bonus. There is not too much to do in surrounding area, but it's a good stop-over place while traveling in/out of Utah.

I have to completely agree with the previous reviewers. Unfortunately we didn't check reviews before we booked and were extremely disappointing at check-in. For $50/night we expected much, much nicer. The sites are very tight with absolutely no shade and no landscaping. Only gravel sites with an older bench. There's noise from the train, plus there's no pool and no cable, although there is internet. I would not stay here again.

Absolutely loved this park. Huge, level paved pads (plenty of space for big rigs) in gorgeous pine surroundings. There's grill, fire pit and bench at each site too. Front sites get bonus view of the valley. Lovely little trail leading down to waterfall from the park, plus lots of other hiking around the area. Very dog-friendly. For $10/night this was an absolute find and we'd stay here again in a heartbeat. Central dump station and water. Note there's no cellphone service up here, so be prepared to get close to nature.
