Pretty park in green setting. Pull through sites are difficult to turn into with big 40' rigs. It can be done but carefully. 10% discount with Good Sam Memberships but there is still the 12% tax that is added to everything. Located at west end of Hope and must drive across town to the east to get to the Othello Tunnels which should not be missed. Beautiful surroundings with huge mountains rising above you like the Pali of Hawaii.

Nice well cared for park. Discounts for various memberships, best one was for SKP's if you pay cash. Mostly pull through sites but since sewer is clear at back of site and only water is in the middle, you still have to unhook your tow vehicle as the sites are barely long enough for a big rig with a small tow. Off the beaten track farther than we expected but at least not too much traffic noise.

Twice a year on the long Memorial Day and Labor Day weekends, Packwood Washington comes alive with a huge flea market that takes over the entire town for three days as well as private homes having yard sales for miles each way. This is private property owned by Steve (number above) with a huge level field that the family allows everyone to camp on, in RV's right behind the big event. No hookups, some general courtesy rules and porta potties and dumpster provided. East end of town, turn right at intersection of Shell gas station and Snyder, turn right at 114 Snyder at the first long driveway. Funky and fun weekend with huge crowds at the markets and many RV'rs make this a destination weekend.

This is a gem of a campground in the woods with cafe/store, full hookups and pull throughs for big rigs so you don't have to unhook tow vehicles. So many interesting and lovely sites along the river and in the historical town of Fort Langley, including the filming sets of the popular television series "Supernatural." Easy drive south to the US Border crossing at Aldergrove so you don't have to fight the I-5 crossing.

While traveling along the Icefields Parkway between Lake Louise and Jasper in Alberta, you will find the Columbia Icefield Center in Jasper National Park. This Center is located just below the enormous Athabasca Glacier. The lower parking lot is available for overnight camping for RV's without any hookups. You can visit the museum, dine in the cafeteria or restaurant, view the glaciers, take glacier hikes or ride the spectacular Ice Explorers on the glacier. Pit toilet available after hours when the center closes. Camping below these spectacular landscapes and watching sunsets and sunrises from your RV is a once in a lifetime opportunity.

Always wise to reserve ahead during busy summer at Parks Canada Campground Reservation System. A reservation fee of $10.80 is charged in addition to nightly rate. All amounts are charged at time of reservation. In addition, daily fees are charged for entering a National Park of $9.80 per person or $8.30 for seniors. Those are paid at entrance to Banff or Jasper National Park before reaching the campground. Park fee is good for all national parks you may visit during each day. Full hookups including sewer and pullover sites along roads so useable for big rigs and not needing to unhook. Huge campgrounds in the trees and must be aware of animals at all times. Bus service available at entry area to town of Banff.

Nice quiet area below dam. You cannot see the lake at all. Pullover sites from road with tables and hookups for RV sites. Can leave tow vehicles hooked up. Shopping in Shelby before entering Canada will save you tons of money for liquor or food. Directions in Russell Country Montana website are so misleading. They tell you it is .5 mile north of Shelby on I-15. No, it's not. You can exit on 364 right to Business Loop 15, turn right on Business Loop (Oilfield Road) and head southeast on business loop less than a half mile to entrance to campground on east side of street. Coordinates are N 48.521, W 111.855

This reservoir is managed by Bureau of Reclamation and there are several campgrounds all around the lake. The pay camp is at the Marina and has full hookups for $30.00 per night and 1/2 price for National Senior Passes. Many other campgrounds around lake are all free with tables and firepits and some even have cabanas. Beautiful historical setting for Lewis and Clark's expedition.

Four motorhomes traveled together to Hoovers to camp in comfort while being able to ride ATV's directly out of camp and onto the famous Paiute Trail. Nice sized site with grassy lawns and backing onto the Sevier River. Only six sites so need to reserve early. Rest of complex is comprised of 7 cabins of various sizes for up to large families. We came after the Labor Day holiday rush, so can't be sure what it's like with lots of other folks staying in all the cabins. Store with sport equipment rentals and a down home grill preparing three meals a day. Fun sportsman experience and great access to many trails.

Huge complex designed for large rallies and all kinds of sporting events including races and rodeos. Modern events center large enough for a thousand RVers but quite a distance from the campground area. There is no shuttle and many people had to rent cars who had not brought one. The walk is not too bad for those who can; however, it crosses through a dusty race track. It would be fitting for such a high-tech center to have a real walking trail or sidewalk. Pleasant grassy sites that are very close together especially for slide outs but they do have sewer hook-ups. Shopping close by for those with vehicles. Only real noise was one evening with stock car racing nearby.

Park is close to all the amenities of the town of Hardin. Spaces are very large with lots of breathing room. Many spaces rented out to long term workers. Owners are very friendly and helpful. Gift shop is kind of fun. Back of office is a wreck. No real amenities except showers and restrooms and worn wooden gazebos for picnic tables. Somewhat noisy as is close to Interstate - some trains, too. Cheap enough to be worth a stay if needed. Several miles to travel to Little Bighorn Battlefield.

Gravel and cut weed patches. More than half are long term workers. Overpriced. Walking distance to the real Fort Caspar which is very nice to visit. Office has empty shelves and coolers with no goods. Rest of office is strewn with debris. Continental breakfast consists of packaged sweet rolls tossed on a shelf. LIMIT ONE PER PERSON..no juice, coffee, etc...Quiet location and easy to get to off main interstate. One night stand kind of place if you could only afford it!

Had made reservations through the central Western Horizons System as members, and were still sent to the separate area that has no sewer dumps!! People were thinking that this area was only for non-members - Not so! A honeywagon comes by certain days of the week only to pump out your rig. So you have to watch your use of water. Nice location with good facilities and activities. Outside street noise levels can be quite high at the perimeters.

Classy rv park abutting San Diego Bay. Surrounded by a large lovely marina, city park along the shoreline and nice restaurants within walking distance. Nice landscaping, somewhat nazi-like rules & warnings! Very tight spaces along the park bay view, but each are secluded with lovely hedges and shrubs. Almost have no room to park a car with a big rig. Set back far enough away from all the 24/7 southern Cal traffic noise. Pricey, used a coupon from an RV magazine to get the rate somewhat lower.

We hosted a motorhome rally here for big 40' motorhomes. There were back in spaces only. It has a beautiful setting along Colorado River in Glenwood Canyon. There is a river rafting company on site. There is easy access to all of Glenwood Springs and Aspen area. Sites are gravel with awkward sewer dumps at front. There are no trees. There are park models for non-camping. The picnic pavilion was seedy. Prices are high, but nothing else is available in this touristy town. There is a nice office, but management is disorganized. Double check your reservations!!!

This state park ranks as #3 in the nation and rightly so! You drive through suburban homes and suddenly you're in a forest. Many different camp loops with or without full hookups - your choice. Each site is in the woods and are so long they have doubles that are staggered with their own picnic outdoor areas and you don't even know they are next door. Views of the lake or river with trails, boat ramps for small motors, fishing docks and you still think you're alone. Top notch facilities, gorgeous views in the fall.

A great little Mom & Pop operation with clean office, nice service and very reasonable rates. We were able to pull through with 40' motorhome and still have tow vehicle hooked up. There is an additional $2.00 charge for 50 amp service. There is some noise from trains but were told by the office there is now a ban on the train horns when passing by. There is good shopping and dining in Grants nearby. Not a lavish resort type of park but a great base camp for visiting El Malpais, the Bandera Volcano and ice cave and El Morro National Monument.

A very remote World Heritage site reached by an 18 mile washboard road which is very rough on RV's. You will need to tie down everything inside securely. A wonderful setting in a stunning canyon filled with ancient dwellings and petroglyphs. There are sites that will accommodate 40' motor homes but this is a first come, first served location with no overflow areas offered. Sunsets are spectacular. The National Park Service visitor center is first class with tours offered, movies available and night sky parties on Tuesday, Friday and Saturday nights. One does need a vehicle to drive to the visitor center and trail heads to all the remarkable pueblos of the ancient world. This park can't be rated just like other rv parks because it is a 1000 years old in the making and invites you back in time. Always call ahead for road conditions and the probability of getting a site. Elevation is 6000' and need to prepare for both winter and summer extremes. Spring and fall are ideal.

Okay park..nice clubhouse and patio. Rather barren and terribly windy. Informative staff. Roads and sites gravel and dirt with no real landscaping features. Basically faceless! Near some shopping and a few tourist attractions. Often used for rallies as it has a good number of big sites. Will probably not remember this campground in the future.

Beautiful forested Park Service campground ,not originally designed for large rigs. Narrow road meanders through campground, with lots of low overhanging branches. Short and medium sites that are not all level. Need to drive through first to find an adequate space and use a spotter to park. 40' motorhomes only fit on a few spaces and may not be able to use all the slides. Best access to Bandelier National Monument with great cliff dwellings and hiking trails.

Big, spacious, and like new campground. Large lots with tree on each one. Wrought iron patio furniture. Rally and special events are normal winter fare. Two pools and restaurant on premises, together with lovely southwestern decor and meeting rooms. Adjacent to huge RV dealership and Camping World. Not in a scenic location, but just off I-10 and convenient to most of Tucson. Highway noise at night.

Immaculate, owned park model, over 55 complex with scattered rental rv lots available. Great clubhouse facilities, pool, kitchen, craft rooms, hobbies, events. RV renters have access to private golf club, across street, with reasonable rates. Beautiful sonoran desert scenery with quiet nights, and next door to Tucson Studios, Sonoran Desert Museum and Saguaro National Park. Big lots with nice landscaping.

We love this unique campground. Perched high above the Queen Mine, it is reached by a switchback road to a round terrace on the side of a mountain. Each site is placed around the edge this terrace and overlooks the charming victorian mining town of Bisbee terraced up the opposite mountain. The lights of Bisbee at night are mesmerizing. All back ins, tow vehicles must be unhooked. Front row seat to history, mining and culture. Entrance is slightly scary.

Nice new park with long pull throughs. Easy access off I-40. Sinking pavement under wheels. Use of casino hotel facilities available. Best place to stay when planning to visit Acoma Sky City and other pueblo missions and sites. Groceries and gas station next door. Fairly spacious sites that don't crowd slide-outs. Rates drop as temperatures rise.

This is a State administered park just outside of Tucson proper and actually right inside a suburban area north of the busy city. Long graceful entrance taking you far away from the traffic and bustle. Big immaculate campground areas with huge sites and located beneath the wonderful vistas of the Catalina Mountains. There are separate areas for equestrian users, trails for mountain bikers and trails for hikers with a mix of easy to strenuous. If you like hiking or biking, this is a great place to be. Not too far away is the Biosphere 2 which makes for a good day trip. A little pricey for a state park but this one is almost as nice as the Oregon State parks which can't be beat.

As with all Oregon state parks, this one is another winner! Very large with rolling green lawns, a veritable forest of trees and open sites looking out over the Snake River. There is a huge boat ramp and docks available for boating and fishing on the Snake as well as lots of beach shoreline for bank fishing and just plain wading and walking barefoot. Lots of folks flying kites here over the river from the sites above. This is a very important historical site as well for the Oregon Trail and is chronicled in the park. One can also camp overnight in a teepee or a covered wagon. Beautiful and relaxing place!

We expected good things of this park; however, it turned out to be rather shabby and forlorn. Weeds and dead shrubbery gracing paths with broken lighting led you to a defunct miniature golf course and an algae-ridden pond with two faded pedal boats; both of which were highly touted in the Trailer Life Magazine as nice amenities. The little dining shack in the back had an old man and teenage boy who never came out to see what you might want - they just hung out back in the kitchen telling jokes to each other. There were narrow sites and big trees to dodge around and the overnighters were stuck in the front next to a very noisy highway. A ludicrous hot tub stuck in the back of an old house in a room as small as a closet with no vents or opening windows. The pool had a very strange color to the water so we did not go in. The clerk in the office was very nice and had answered the phone nicely as well. We have spent a lot less for a lot more in many other parks.
