This park has amazing geography and is well worth a visit. But, if you want to camp, try to avoid the peak season of late spring/summer. By chance, our route took us here the first weekend in June. We were lucky to get a spot on a Thursday morning. There are two loops. One is reserved, and the other has 44 walk-in sites. The loop and sites are paved, but not very level. There are some big-rig sites, but most are smaller. There is one restroom for the entire loop with flush toilets and cold water sinks. The sites are very close together. We could see 10 other sites from our dinette window. By Friday, the campground was packed, with people lined up at 8am to try to get a site. There was constant car traffic around the loop, frequently above the speed limit and the wrong way! The camp host did nothing to try to reign this in. This would probably be a totally different scene by September which would be a better time to visit.
This is a gorgeous place and very well run state park. We had a dry site, a long, paved pull-out with a great view of the surrounding canyon. There are a handful of FHU's, but you would probably need a reservation. Nice hot showers and hot water camp sink. The hiking is great here, with several long, but moderate trails with fantastic views of Bryce Canyon to the west. If you are traveling from Bryce to Capitol Reef, this park is well worth your time to stop.
This is definitely a no-frills park, but a great value. For $20 plus tax, you get a FHU, pretty good Wi-Fi, decent antenna TV and a long, hot shower. If you have been boon-docking for a few days, this place is nirvana. Road noise is considerable during the day, but not very noticeable at night. Sights are gravel, not overly large and may need a bit of leveling. We had sight #1, so I could step out of the coach and into the shower room in my bathrobe...now that's convenient. Location is about a 1/2 hour drive from the west entrance of Zion's Natl Park and about an hour south of Bryce Natl Park.
Very scenic and quiet spot, located on the Bonito Lava Flow just outside Sunset Crater Natl Monument. All paved spots, some back-in and some pull-offs. Most seemed small to medium size. We took one of the longer pull-offs and needed it all for our truck and 23 ft trailer. Park had just opened for the season, so one of the 3 restrooms was still closed, but midweek this was no problem. Totally dry camping, with no cell signal whatsoever. Limited water, so they ask that you not fill RV tanks. We enjoyed the peace and quiet, as well as Sunset Crater and the Wupatki ruins. Rate reflects Senior Pass rate.
Beautiful, remote sites in the Sonoran desert: paved, private and pull-through, each with picnic table and grill. If you value nature and quiet over amenities, this is the place for you. Spotless restrooms with camp sinks. Hiking, scenic drives and ranger programs. I had a decent ATT 3G signal, but my husband kept getting a Mexican service, so be careful if you use your phone. If you are worried about the location being right on the border (it is), we saw Border Patrol all over the place on our drive down from Phoenix and over to Tucson. Our rate reflects Senior Pass discount.
This national park easily falls into the "DO NOT MISS" category. The scenery and wildlife are as close to what must have been 100 years ago as you can get. The campground has 2 loops, back-in and pull-through. The back-in loops all seemed too small for our 23 ft trailer, so most rigs will need one of the 37 pull-throughs. All of these are very private, many are mindbogglingly long. No hook-ups, but potable water spigots are conveniently placed between sites. Our tour of the scenic loop was interrupted by group of bison that just didn't want to move off the road, so we ate lunch in the truck and stared at each other for a while. Great scenery, hiking and ranger programs. If you go after Labor Day, the nearby town of Medora is starting to shut down a bit, so provision before you come. Worth every minute it takes to get here!
This park was a life saver over Labor Day weekend. All the state and city parks were jammed, so we came here based on a local's recommendation. It was a fine choice and a good value with electric and water for $20. Some pull-through sites, mostly level and gravel paved. You'll want one of those, as our back-in was a bit sandy and turned to mud after a thunderstorm. Restrooms are small, but clean with a good shower. It makes a good base camp for exploring the Keweenaw peninsula. No TV, cable or WI-Fi, but a strong 3-G signal on AT&T. The town of Lake Linden is cute. There was a farmer's market on Saturday. Be sure to check out Lindell's Chocolate Shoppe for a trip back in time and some good ice cream.
A gorgeous campsite. Who can argue with a view of Lake Huron from your bedroom? We stayed in the lower loop that is closest to the bridge. Yes, there is traffic noise, but fairly constant, so you get used to it. We had a 50 amp site, back-in, grassy, fairly level. Good antenna TV and AT&T cell signal. The showers here were the best I've ever seen in a state park, individual rooms, fully tiled, well-designed, clean, and plenty of hot water. We have a great shower in the trailer, so I rarely venture out, but these showers were worth it. Only drawback for us were the zillion campfires. Most campsites are back-to-back and there is no escape from your neighbor's fire. If you are sensitive to wood smoke, you will have a problem, at least in the busy months. Otherwise, this is a wonderful place, with a grocery store within walking distance and the charming town of St. Ignace to explore.
This park is very well run! We showed up on a Thursday with no reservation and were handed a list of sites that were available for 1, 2, or 2 or more days. We were able to quickly zero in on a nice pull-through. We stayed at the Overlook Loop. Sites are totally wooded and fairly large. The shower/bath facilities are older but well kept. There are two sets of waterfalls, upper and lower, with a nice 4 mile hike between them. A shuttle runs in the summer, to return you home without hiking another 4 miles! Wonderful ranger programs for kids/grand kids, including "Investigating Owl Puke." (No kidding!) Again, everyone seems to have a campfire, so if smoke is a problem for you, avoid the busy season. I'm sure this park would be gorgeous in the fall.
If you have or love Airstreams, come here! Park was originally founded by an Airstream Club and there are many wonderful old models anchored here. We stayed in a full hook-up site (back-in), that was spacious, quiet and shady. There is a newer section lacking sewer, but it appears to be pull-through. Good cable and ATT cell reception. On the SW side of town, but very accessible to TC, Sleeping Bear and the Leelenau Peninsula. On Silver Lake, with beach access and many pleasant walks. We loved it!
This is a Indiana Dunes National Park campground, just east of Dunes State Park. Not on the beach, but all of them are only a short drive. Large, private, shady sites, 53 drive-in, all paved with some pull-throughs. 25 tent sites. Picnic tables and fire rings. Dry camping at its best. Restrooms, hot showers, camp sinks with hot water. Dump station and fresh water available. Open late April to late October. Our third time here. Only drawback is moderate train/traffic noise. We love it! Located on US Highway 12 and Broadway in Beverly Shores, IN.
Quiet park, convenient to the Amana Colonies and Iowa State University. Friendly staff and residents. The pull-through sites are designated for short-term stays, so easy in and out. The shower/rest rooms are private and very nice. They have a 'homestyle' laundry with newer household machines, so you just pay by the load at the front desk and no searching your pockets for quarters. We enjoyed our stay here.
Beautiful park, much loved by locals. Reservations are taken and needed in the summer. There are 13 spots with electric ($14) and 8 full hook-ups ($17), all paved concrete pads. Most are small, so big rigs would definitely need to reserve. Our spot, 19, was small, but we still needed an extension cord to reach the electric. Otherwise a lovely park, conveniently located, great value. Nice hiking trail and a bird blind for excellent bird-watching.
The location is very convenient for an overnight stay, but pleasant enough to stay longer. Mostly, long, level, gravel pull-throughs with tall trees for shade. Owners were very pleasant and helpful. Antenna TV was fine, as was the Wi-Fi.
Stayed here for 5 days to explore the area. Very peaceful and quiet setting. The staff could not have been friendlier or more helpful. The park is hilly and wooded which gives the sites a lot of privacy. On the west side of Custer, but easy access to town and all the other sites. Good cable and decent Wi-Fi. The pool wasn't open yet, but we did use the laundry which was large and clean.
Sites here are large pull-offs along a paved loop. Electric sites are $28, non-electric are $16, both 50% off with Golden Age Pass. Views of the Badlands were great, and you can't beat the value. Sites are completely exposed, but come with a picnic table with a built-in sun/wind shade. It was incredibly windy over our 2 day visit, which seems to be normal for here. A special place with some great hiking.
Pretty basic campground, but OK for an overnight. We were put in a spot that was a little small for us and kind of uneven, but we made it work. TV and Wi-Fi was OK. Location is right off I-90, but you need to get onto an access road from the main street to enter the park. A bit tricky. We wanted to see the Corn Palace and buy groceries, both of which we easily did from here.
A brand new park with problems. Sites are gravel and level, adequate but not spacious. Laundry, showers common recreation areas all are very nice. Big minus for us was the noise level. Although a mile from I-25, it's located on a busy access road with train tracks. Seems to be near a construction staging area as there was much back and forth semi traffic. OK for an overnight stop, but wouldn't want to linger. Check-in was difficult. Only park where we've never been given a map of the facility.
Just a lovely location, a variety of mountain and desert scenery with the beautiful Green River running right by the campsite. Surrounded by birdsong. Paved sites, fairly level with clean restrooms (no showers). Located in an area where most dinosaur fossils have been found. The exhibit hall is built right into the side of the dinosaur quarry, with many bones and fossils you can touch. Nice scenic drive with a short hike to see many petroglyphs. Out of the way, but worth it. $6 fee reflects Golden Age discount.
Beautiful, remote sites. No services, not even an electric outlet in the bathroom, so be prepared. No reservations, so only way to snag a site is to lay-up outside the park the day before and cruise around the loops at 8:30am. Loop B has smaller, closer together sites, but seem level. Loop A has the larger sites, but some, like ours slope up and had a big dip. Was a challenge not to rip off the back of the trailer, but once in, what a spot! Beautiful views and absolute peace. Ahhhhhhh.
After reading reviews of Moab parks, they all seemed to be expensive and cramped, so we started off giving this one a 7 for being very convenient to town and Arches and only $34! (Still cramped). That said, it is located right by two bridges on US 191 over the Colorado River and they were doing construction. The noise was unbearable during the day. So night-time traffic didn't seem so bad, but it is considerable. Wi-Fi was great one day but non-existent the next. Moab was overrun with tourists.
Spacious pull-through sites, which my husband pronounced perfectly level...a first! Beautiful cliffs across the San Juan River make you forget you are basically in a gravel parking lot, but the owners are obviously trying to add shade and make it more scenic. Very nice owners. Showers were just fine. We found the Wi-Fi to be OK as was the antenna TV. Liked the spot, but services are quite limited in Bluff. Had to go on to Blanding for propane, but we would stay here again.
They just started charging for this park on April 16th, but $10 seems a fair price. Sites are paved and fairly level with open area between most sites. Restrooms (no showers) seemed updated and clean. The park is at the entrance of Canyon de Chelly , so it is easy to drive to either the north or south rim from there. Horse rentals and jeep tours are available at nearby Thunderbird Lodge. Local artists will come by to offer their wares, but they were very polite. A very nice rustic camp site with easy access to gorgeous Canyon de Chelly.
This park is well maintained with gravel pull-thoughs, some shade. Plenty of room, but we needed a little leveling. The RV park is part of the company that owns and runs Meteor Crater, and all the staff at both the park and the crater were very friendly and well trained. We recommend the tour at Meteor Crater with Eduardo! The park is right off I-40, so there is some road noise, but in this part of Arizona , it's either road noise or train noise or both! No trains here. We also took the tour of Rock Art Ranch which was wonderful. This park would make a very convenient overnight stop. We would stay here again.
There aren't many choices in the North Las Vegas area, so this one was just fine for a few days. Although the area seemed a little rough, the park was secure with lots of snowbirds there for the winter. Rest rooms were very nice. Big drawback is the noise from Nellis AFB. They were doing touch and goes over our trailer. Better than an airshow, but LOUD! Overall, perfectly adequate for our needs and a good value for Las Vegas.
A fabulous national park campground. It is easily in our top 10. The rangers recommended a couple great hikes that kept us away from the crowds. The campground is accessed off a separate road, not the main road through the park, so there is quite a bit of driving if you want to see the view points. There are other CG's that looked nice, but this is the only one with water on the north side of the park. It's a beautiful spot. It's worth trying to make a reservation.
This is a nice place. It is close to Palm Springs but away from the crowds. Very nice people at the front desk. Lots of snowbirds and permanent residents. The spaces are large but hard to back into because the streets are not very wide. The pool and golf course looked nice, although we didn't use them. We did use the laundry which was just fine. There are some cute restaurants in Desert Hot Springs and be sure to go on the wind farm tour. Overall, a good value for the Palm Springs area.
Very nice people and very nice park. Right off I-40, but on a hillside which helps with the road noise. Attractive and seemed very safe. Large, easy-in spaces. Saw several large trailers parked without tow vehicles. Assume their owners use this as base camp for trips to Las Vegas. Good idea! This park is an excellent value.
