Situated quite close to Route 71 makes this a good campground while traveling north or south. And fortunately the campground is fairly quiet, because it is located in a hollow, so you hear little of the steady noise out on Route 71. Sites are also level and have good spacing. There is also a very nice club room available, complete with stove, sink, microwave, and refrigerator, plus the campground offers a discount for club rallies. And for walking your dog, there is a huge field next to the campground, complete with doggy litter bag dispenser. But I have downgraded due to the lack of any toilet or shower facilities whatsoever.
Stayed in Hackberry campground, which was only about 1/4 full, so lots of privacy. But there were also lots of flies, which was annoying. Not sure what was causing that. Note also that it's kind of pricey for only a water and electric hookup. They charge $24 a night for the campsite, plus another $5/person and a per night "entrance fee", even if you only enter the campground once and stay a couple of nights like my wife and I did. Hence the $34 per night fee that I listed. So I have rated Palo Duro a couple of stars lower, due to the flies and the high price.
Full hookups for only $17 with a Good Sam membership, otherwise $20. Other clubs are honored also, I believe. Campsites very clean, all are level, the showers in the restrooms were huge and nicely tiled, and the area is quiet. Two pools, large dining area for clubs or rallies or snow birds. Four 9 foot pool tables, and a very extensive paperback book lending library for long-stay folks. Staff was helpful and polite. We were there prior to the arrival of the snowbirds, so there were lots of sites available.
This charming (and free) little campground offers quiet sites nestled among pine and spruce trees, and is located on the south side of Route 60 in "downtown" Pie Town. Sites are level, and there is a threaded water spigot available, but that's it. No toilets, electricity, or trash dumpsters. But the price is certainly right, the camping is quiet and there is plenty of room between sites. Big rigs or larger 5th wheels or trailers won't fit. My rig is 25 foot and it fit just fine, but I'd say that's about the upper limit. No gasoline or diesel in town, so come prepared.
I agree with the previous reviewer - as a CAMPSITE I would say it is just so-so. Some sites are level, some are not. Electric hookup only, and while the sites aren't terribly close to one another, neither are they as spaced as you will find in many BLM or NFS campgrounds. But as a PARK, Zion is certainly hard to beat, and the free shuttle (a 5-minute walk from our campsite) makes it very easy to reach the various hiking trails and scenic vistas in the park. If you enter or leave the park from the east, you will also encounter a $15 tunnel access fee, which covers 2 trips through the tunnel. And there is also a park entrance fee unless you have one of the various national park service passes.
Rate reflects a senior discount and some sort of promotional rate they were offering, apparently due to it being late in the season. We stayed at the camping area (can't remember the name) which is about 1 mile north of the Visitor Center, not the area south of the Center. The area we stayed in has newer, more level sites, along with full hookups, and is woods views only, while the other area has limited hookups but does offer nice views of the lake from some of the sites. Sites are situated somewhat oddly, with many sites immediately side-by-side with another site. Nice if you are camping with another RV couple, I suppose, but otherwise you will have one close neighbor, with the other RVs spaced more normally from you. The campground was less than half filled when we were there, so everyone had positioned their rigs in those odd "double" sites with nobody in the site immediately next to them. The campground is distant from the road and so it was very quiet, and $12 was very fair for a full hookup!
Distant views of the lake. Most sites are reasonably level and spacious. Very sturdy stone shelter at each site, with a large cement picnic table underneath. About a 7 mile drive north of I-40, but your reward is a quiet campground at the very fair rate of only $14 for a level water and electric hookup.
Nestled in a lovely south-facing red rock canyon, this campground is a jewel for those headed east or west on I-40, which is only about 1 mile away. Train tracks are about 1/2 mile away, but with the windows closed I couldn't hear the trains. I took 1 star off because with windows open one might be able to hear the trains at night. Sites have water and electric, are well-spaced, and are reasonably level. Campground is grass and sand, and not a speck of trash anywhere. Restrooms were clean, with soap and paper towel dispensers and large showers. Very friendly and polite staff. We were touring the museum and rain was threatening, and several of the campground staff offered to give us a ride back to our RV when we finished seeing the museum. Please do not miss the fine museum, which is only about a 5 minute walk from the campground. Nice sand art paintings, excellent large wood carvings, fine southwest jewelry, baskets, pottery, early stone and clay utensils, etc. It is rare that one finds a campground as nice as this, as inexpensive, so close to an interstate, and with so much to offer for the overnight traveler.
Snow Canyon SP north of St. George, Utah. Water and electric sites are $20, paved, and are lined up side-by-side with just enough room to put the slides out. Dry camping sites are $16, well-spaced, level, and have privacy due to trees and shrubs. Beautiful views of the gorgeous state park from both types of sites, however. Cell phone reception basically non-existent at the campground, but a weak and useable signal for both AT&T and Verizon was available at various points towards the northern end of the park. As others have mentioned, the NON-hookup sites are much prettier and have nice spacing between sites. I would have foregone the hookup (and saved $4!) if one on those had been available, but unfortunately they were all taken when I got there. I'd probably give a Rating of 8 for the non-hookup sites. But regardless of which type of site you stay in, the park itself is gorgeous, with terrific hiking trails and also nice paved bike paths.
Two beautiful campgrounds, both set among towering red rock formations. Arch Rock is dry camping only, with pit toilets and unthreaded water faucets scattered throughout the widely-spaced, mostly-level sites, some of which can accommodate big rigs. Atlatl Rock has both dry sites and water-electric sites, flush toilets and showers. Campsites are $20 for dry, $30 for water-electric, and include admission to park ($10 fee if not camping) which has many scenic rock formations to tour. Some areas of the park have weak, but generally adequate, cell phone reception for both AT&T and Verizon, but reception at either of the two campgrounds is generally non-existent. A very pretty state park, and well worth a day or two of exploring.
Owl Canyon BLM campground, north of Barstow, CA. Widely separated, and mostly level, dirt campsites in a pretty little canyon. Rate listed was for a senior discount. No hookups, but trash receptacles, a couple of unthreaded water spigots, and several clean pit toilets. Big rig accessible, but the dirt road leading to the campground is very washboarded, so it is slow going. Beautiful view of the mountain range to the south at sunset. Extremely quiet and peaceful area. Nice.
Rate reflects senior 50% discount. Sites are level, well-spaced and the park was quiet. Some sites nicely shaded, others not quite so much. Cellphone reception was adequate (AT&T) but no over-air TV reception due to fairly heavy tree coverage in the park. Nice views of barges going up and down the river, and the lock and dam was within easy walking distance, so we got to see the lock gates opening up and a barge and tug just starting to come out of the lock. Fun!
Rate reflects $2 discount for seniors. Water and electric hookups, dump station available, clean bathroom with pay showers. Sites are level and well-spaced. This is a charming, unique little campground situated down in a small canyon.
Sites are level, well-spaced, and some of them have decent shade from bushes. Water and electric hookup, dump station available. Bathroom was clean. It's about a 12 mile drive on Highway 380, to the east, from Roswell, but you are rewarded by a nice quiet campground with decent scenery.
Sites are level, well-spaced, and quiet. Water and electric hookup, dump station available. Bathroom is clean. The area is scruffy, as is typical of that part of New Mexico. But it's still a nice campground and is only a short distance off of Interstate 25.
Price reflects rate for 1 night camping and cave tour admission for 2 people. Sites are paved, level, and well-spaced. Bathroom clean. Cave tour is great, and it's an easy walk from the campsite to the cave tour/visitor center area.
Rate reflects senior discount. Huge campground, spread out over a large area in several loops. Sites mostly level, well-spaced, no hookups, fairly pretty views overlooking the lake and with mountains nearby.
Attractive, well-shaded, and fairly good spacing between sites. Full hookups and good Wi-Fi. Pads are all paved or concrete, but some of the pads are rather narrow, so you may have to take care to center the rig as you park. Clean restrooms, good showers. It's about a half hour drive over to Springdale, where you can park and catch a free shuttle that takes you to the Zion National Park entrance. After entering the Park (a short walk from the Springdale shuttle) you can then ride the free park shuttle to whatever park highlights you wish to see. Very convenient!
Rate reflects senior discount, but was for a water and electric site and with a terrific view of the reservoir and the distant mountains. Probably the prettiest view I have ever seen at any COE campground. Bathhouse has flush toilets and nice showers. The drive west from the campground, on Route 96 over to Route 550, is quite pretty, but one which those with really big RVs or trailers may want to avoid.
Quiet campground, with sites well-spaced. Rate reflects senior discount. Dry camping, but unthreaded water spigots are available. Free Wi-Fi available at three nearby places: the lodge, the general store and the visitor center. Handy free shuttle bus takes you wherever you want to go in the Canyon, with a bus stop within easy walking distance of the campground.
Rate reflects senior discount. Sites paved and mostly level. Sites are first-come, first-served, and the campground tended to fill by around noon. Dry camping, but water spigots available. Restrooms were clean. All the beautiful sights of Capitol Reef are only minutes away by car.
Rate reflects senior discount. Dry camping, but with water spigots scattered throughout campground. Sites are nicely spaced and with good foliage in between. Pit toilets were clean. Interesting petroglyphs can be seen on a nearby rock wall.
Rate reflects Golden Age Passport 1/2 price discount. This popular campground has lots of campsites, most of which are level and well-spaced. There are a limited number of electrical hookup sites however, so you should be prepared to possibly dry camp upon arrival. Plenty of water spigots scattered throughout the campground areas, so fill your tanks before heading to your individual site. We saw a herd of 11 deer and a herd of 9 turkey stroll right through the campsite, and there were plenty of buffalo, large-racked elk, and long horn cattle to be seen from the roads in the park. Beautiful view from the top of Mt. Scott, and lots of gorgeous rock scenery everywhere in the park. This is a park we want to visit again so we can explore it more thoroughly and hike some of the trails.
We parked our RV in the driveway of relatives in Lamesa, so we didn't actually camp here, but we drove to the campground and confirmed that there are electrical hookups at each site. There is a sewer dump, a trash container, and there is also a water spigot. No toilet facility however. Our relative who drove us by the site told us the park was often full of RVs, but there were none the day we drove by. It is in a nice part of town, surrounded by pretty park land. Review entry form doesn't allow entering $0, but the campsites are free nonetheless.
Price reflects senior discount, else it would have been $20. Level sites, well-spaced, with water and 30 and 50 amp electric. Dump stations available, only 3 sites have sewer hookups. Very pretty campground down in a long, narrow canyon. Bathrooms were clean. Individual showers and changing rooms are provided, with coin-operated showers, 50 cents for first 3 minutes, 25 cents for each additional 1 and 1/2 minutes. No WiFi, but good cellphone and TV reception, about 15 channels, which surprised me for being down in a canyon. Lots of greenery in the canyon, and pretty red rock walls in places.
No hookups, but has a dump station, and a threaded water connector is available for refilling tanks. Sites are well-spaced and level. The nearby Canyon de Chelly is *very* pretty and the views from both the north and south rim drives are well worth seeing, including the Anazazi cliff dwellings.
Price reflects senior discount, sites normally $18. No hookups, but unthreaded water spigots are scattered throughout the campground. Flush toilets and sinks in the bathrooms, no showers. Camp host said the campground will be converted to pit toilets only next year, which is unfortunate. Oh well. Sites are very well spaced and almost all are level. There were plenty of nice vacant sites to choose from mid-week, but almost every site was reserved for the weekend, so plan accordingly.
This is the first RV park I have ever visited, which offers a 360 degree panorama view, right from the campground. And it is a stunning view indeed, with nearby mountains to the west and north, and vistas over a huge plain to the east and south to more distant mountains. I could see Capulin Volcano, which is about 25 miles to the east. Campground elevation is 6500 feet. There are 117 full hookup RV sites total, in two campgrounds, and even the largest of rigs can easily be accommodated, but only 30 amp service, no 50 amp. Bathrooms were very spacious and clean, and each shower had an attached changing area. I don't know how big the entire NRA area is (there are many firing ranges as part of the center, but they are quite some distance from the two RV campgrounds), but I would estimate the total area to be hundreds of acres, perhaps thousands. Cellphone reception was excellent, and I was able to get 9 over-air channels on the TV in my rig. The host at the check-in said the campground never fills, but they do take reservations if one has a particular site they like. The Center is 10 miles south of Raton, on Highway 64, but the campground is maybe 1 mile in from the highway, so it is very quiet. You do not have to be an NRA member to camp here. I rarely give 10 star ratings, but this place earned it.
Price reflects senior discount, sites normally $7. Pit toilets, no hookups, but threaded faucets scattered throughout campground. Sites level and very widely spaced. It's a 13 mile drive from highway 522 to the campground areas (there are several, but each just has a handful of sites) but it is paved all the way. Roads in the campgrounds themselves are gravel, but mostly in decent shape. Some were washboard. Campground elevation is 7500 feet. Scenic views abound. Sites have sheltered, covered picnic tables. Taking into consideration that this is a boon docking campground, it still deserves a full 10 star rating, due to the fine views, excellent hiking trails, and huge spacing between sites.
About a 30 minute drive south of downtown Colorado Springs, but unlike many of the RV parks here, you have a bit of breathing room between the sites, whereas some of the parks right in Colorado Springs have the rigs packed in like sardines. Full hookups, and sites were level. Bathrooms snug, but clean. Quite a few deer, including 3 young bucks, roaming the campground.
Price reflects $26 camping fee plus daily $9 "entrance" fee. Full hookups, level sites, well-spaced. Bathrooms clean, but with pay showers, which I thought was kind of chintzy, given the rather high total fee. Great park for bike riding (lots of paved bike paths) and it is level and about 4,000 acres total, including a rather large lake.
Price reflects senior discount for no-hookup sites, which are normally $28. Full hookup sites are $38, no senior discount available for those. Sites are well-spaced, but not all are level, and some are too short for RV's over 20 feet or so. There were plenty of sites to choose from for rigs 30 feet or less, however all 15 full-hookup sites were taken. Dump station has fresh water, but no threaded connector. Threaded spigots inside the bathrooms, so we filled our tanks there. Free showers and WiFi at the campground check-in building.
The price is right! The town of Dumas provides a free park, complete with 30 amp and 50 amp hookups for RV travelers, just north of 87, just west of 287. There is also a threaded water spigot, as well as a dump station and trash bin. It is a level, paved lot, with about 25 electrical posts available. There is also a rest room with flush toilets and cold water sink. No showers or WiFi, but cellphone and over-air TV reception was good. The town asks that you limit your stay to one night, and there is a post for you to donate money towards upkeep of the park, but you are not required to leave a donation if you don't want to. A train line is quite close by, and VERY loud train whistles occurred until about 8 pm at night and beginning about 4:15 am the next morning, which might be a factor for some people. There were about 15 rigs in the park the midweek night I stayed. I gladly left a donation, because I would have felt guilty otherwise, since I was running my AC.
We always enjoy our stopovers at this RV park. Sites are level and spacious, bathrooms are spotless, Wi-Fi strong. Just far enough off of I-40 to be quiet at night, but close enough for easy access. We have stayed here several times, and plan to do so again in the future, because we know we can count on a quiet evening and a great shower after a long stretch headed either east or west on I-40.
Close to I-35 yet far enough removed to be totally quiet at night. Large, well-spaced sites, including many pull-through. Note that while the sites have electrical service, they do not have individual water. Instead, there are water spigots scattered throughout the campground. Showers and flush toilet restrooms was still closed for the winter when we were there, so I cannot comment on those facilities. There were pit toilets available however, along with one working water spigot near the shower room.
Rate reflects half-price for Arkansas resident senior citizen. Note that there are 2 types of sites, $20 for 30 amp and water, $30 for 30/50 amp, water, and sewer. The $30 sites are absolutely level and concrete pads, while the $20 sites are asphalt and slightly off-level, but not bad. The restrooms were spotless and nice and warm (it got down into the upper 30's during our stay) and the showers were adequately warm, but not adjustable in temperature. There are some excellent hiking trails in this park, and the sites themselves have a nice view of the lake and lots of space between adjacent sites.
The so-called "lakefront" sites (it's more of a river rather than a lake) are quite close together. The sites away from the "lake" are more spacious, as well as being less expensive. The WiFi signal only works right next to the office - forget about having a WiFi signal at your campsite. Big dock from which you can fish, plus a boat ramp for campers to launch their boats from. Bathrooms were somewhat old, but reasonably clean.
High on a hilltop, this campground has nice views off to the south, and is quiet even while being within a short driving distance of Hot Springs. Bathrooms were very clean, and the shower stalls were large. Good WiFi signal. Very nice rec hall for club use, or for sitting in a sofa and watching TV.
Nice level sites, with plenty of room between sites. The falls weren't running, but the dripping springs were, and were quite pretty. Nice hiking trail to the falls and springs. Restrooms were clean, but the hot water was only lukewarm, making for an unpleasant shower.
Sites are pretty close together, but enough room to get the slides out. Quite a few of the sites have nice views of the lake. WiFi was available, but the signal was weak and spotty and nonexistent at some sites. Owners said normally the signal was good. There had been heavy rains recently, so perhaps after things dried out the signal would have been OK, but it never was during the time we camped there.
Mostly seasonal campers here, but they keep about 10 sites available for overnighters. I'd say the restrooms are clean, but they are old and a bit musty. "Adequate" is how I'd probably describe them. But at only $23 for water, sewer and electric, the place is acceptable. It was quiet when we were there, and it's far enough off of the highway that road noise was absent. Would stay here again for an overnight.
As the name suggests, this is just off of Interstate 81, but despite that it was fairly quiet, thanks to a low hill between the campground and the highway. It's just a group of fairly close-spaced, but paved, sites nestled among motel units, but more than adequate for an overnight. Restrooms were old, but reasonably clean, and at only $20 a night for a full hookup - water, sewer, and electric - I definitely plan on using this campsite again. It's closer to the highway than the nearby Hungry Mother State Park, which was full because of Labor Day weekend, so it's good for one-night stays when traveling through the area. Pleasant, friendly receptionist at the desk.
Great campground for families, lots of scheduled activities every day for kids. Grounds and restrooms are kept spotless by the staff. Hurricane Irene was approaching so they closed the campground to everyone except out-of-state folks like us so we practically had the place to ourselves for a couple of days. It knocked out power for a couple of days though, but it was kind of fun "roughing it".
We've camped here several times and have always enjoyed it. Nice hiking trails, good spacing between sites, and excellent new bathroom facilities with nice one-person shower rooms. Price shown includes the extra $5 charge for the first night you register, so longer stays would be less expensive, but we used this just as an overnight.
