We like primitive campgrounds. Sage Creek is in the prairie section of the Badlands. There were numerous buffalo on the entry road and they can walk through the campground. Sage Creek is definitely accessible by big rigs, but there are only 2 or 3 sites that can accommodate them. All were available when we came in. Like Cedar Creek, the sites are simply pull offs to the side of the loop road, so your slide outs stick out towards the road. I could not find much information on this campground and its suitability for big rigs, so I had to check it out myself and stayed at Cedar Creek first. The road to Sage Creek is dirt, but is wide and not too rough. Locals told us 18 wheelers use it. If you don't need power, like primitive, and are self sufficient for power and water, don't overlook this one. We would stay here again, but its what we like and the price is right (free). There is no shade, sites are level. No cell or internet. We had no problems maneuvering our 39' RV with a toad.
Rate reflects PA discount. The location is convenient to town, just a few miles out. The staff was very pleasant and friendly. The site was level and a pull through. WiFi was strong. Verizon signal was weak. There was a pool and play area, which was closed for the season, but looked nice enough. We would stay here again.
We stayed here for an overnight. Its 5 or 6 miles from the interstate, but is easy to get to. This is a large field divided into lots of sites, and is part of the fairgrounds. Most are level, but not all. We had our pick, since there were only 2 other campers, and effectively had a pull through. Each site has 30amp power and water. Satellite was great. Verizon and ATT both very strong with good Verizon 4G. This was great for an overnight and would be great for the fair. I doubt that it gets very full when the fair is not on. We would stay here again if passing through.
This campground is very convenient to the interstate. We stayed for an overnight in the non-electric area. Rates are $10 for non-electric, $20 for electric, with 1/2 off for seniors on weekdays. All sites were level, non-electric are grass, electric are gravel. There was nice separation, typical of state parks. We had good satellite but most sites are shaded and will probably not have good satellite. Verizon was weak 1-2 bars with slow internet. We really liked this park. It has bike paths, hiking paths, fishing, and lots of deer and geese. The hosts were friendly. We would definitely stay here again.
Mammoth is at the north entrance and is first come first served, no reservations. Even in the shoulder season of September, it has filled everyday by noon or earlier. It is much more open than we expected, with lots of lower height trees, but not a high canopy. Many sites easily accommodate big rigs and we had good solar generation plus dish satellite reception in site 12. Sites have good separation and lots of room for slideouts. We later drove through Slough Creek and Pebble Creek campgrounds. Both are much smaller, fill rapidly, and have only a couple of suitable big rig sites ( site 1 in Slough Creek is fantastic). This means if you want a sure space for your big rig, you are better off getting in early to Mammoth or reserve at another. As NSP campgrounds go, Mammoth is great. We stayed here for 3 nights in a 39' motorhome. Be aware, no dump station, come in with empty tanks or drive to the Yellowstone RV park in Gardiner and pay $6. Good Verizon phone, spotty 1-2 bar 3G. No AT&T reception. Good Verizon Internet at the top of the hill at the Visitor center. We would definitely stay here again. No electric, but water was available at our site with a threaded connection, you just can't stay connected.
Bearmouth Chalet is under new management as of March 2014. The new owners are very friendly and are actively updating the park. We planned this as a simple overnight, as it is very convenient it I-90, just beside the interstate. However, we liked the park and decided to visit the ghost town of Garnet, which we thoroughly enjoyed, staying for a second night. The sites are level, with degrees of shading available. Dish Network satellite works if you avoid the trees to the south in your site selection. The river is right beside the park. Most sites are 30 amp, but there are five or six 50 amp sites at no extra charge. Water is at each site, but sewer is unavailable since the camp is in the river flood plain. A dump station is available. Our rig is 39' long, We would definitely stay again. Rate reflects the Good Sam discount.
St Mary's is the only good NPS choice to make on the East Side if you have a big rig. The other NPS campgrounds will accommodate tents, pop-ups, and small trailers, but if you have something over 25 feet, St. Mary's is your only choice. This is dry camping only, no hookups. Larger rigs should go straight to loop C. It has the largest spots, all are pull-throughs. The first spots 101 to about 109, are the most level. Grab any of them if available when first enter the loop. 106 was great for us, with a wonderful view, satellite signal (Dish), and open for our solar panels. Other sites have shade. The sites farther into the loop are on the hill and require more effort to level. No AT&T signal but strong Verizon wireless including 4G. If you can dry camp, the rate is about 1/3 of a local RV park. We would definitely return. No generators in loop A and gen times are restricted in loops B & C.
This resort is located lakeside on the Van Hook Arm of Lake Sakakawea. It is 2 mile south of the intersection of Rt 23 and Rt 8, about 3 or 4 miles east of New Town. We overnighted there in a 39' motorhome. It was off season and we were given a spot with a lovely lake view. The sites are grass and were soft after a recent rain. Most sites appeared pretty level. Staff was friendly and the rate was great. I would definitely consider this if I was visiting the lake or needed another overnight stopover. There is a large campstore, with lots of fishing gear available. There is no water available at this location, so bring in a full tank.
This municipal park is directly across from where Rt. 191 intersects Rt. 2, behind the rest area. Drive through the rest area to find the park behind. Don't be confused by the RV park which is part of a small motel on the left as you enter the park. There are drive-through sites to the left side, but you can also park in any of the grassy areas. There are several water spigots in the park and the water tastes good. This was a great and super cheap overnight stop at only $3. We would definitely stay here again for an overnight.
We stayed here one night while passing through. Rate reflects Passport America with no power. Our site was clean and level, with easy pull-through access. Wi-Fi signal was very strong but I forgot to get the code. The entry road had some potholes, but nothing that caused problems for our 39' motorhome. For my purpose this was a 10. I would have no concerns about spending a more extended stay here. Some sites were tight, but not ours. Very quiet on a Thursday night. Staff was friendly. Sites are grass, no pads.
We camped here after touring the Hopewell Rocks. It's just two kilometers away. It has a great location, next to the river with a large pond as well - we love waterside camps. Wi-Fi was strong, but as always shared with your neighbors, so speed was slower, but adequate. Adequate spacing with wooded and open sites. Dish reception in the open sites. We would stay here again.
After some debate, we decided to use this park as our base for a tour of the Cabot Trail. Great decision. This spot gives you good access to Louisburg, as well as the Cabot Trail. This park was very nice, with wooded and open sites. It sits on top of a rise and the open sites have some lovely views. Very clean and well tended grounds. We had lots of room, but it was still off season. Heated pool. Wi-Fi was fast with a strong signal. The staff is a German family and they were friendly and delightful. Plenty of room for big rigs, but tent sites as well. We saw Bald Eagles flying over everyday. We would definitely return. We stayed three nights.
If going to Montreal in a motorhome, this is a hidden gem. OK, no services except electricity (my rate was with no electric). But this is right on the river across from Montreal and 5 minutes from the metro, 10 by bike, 15 on foot. Plenty of space and the price is right. If you prefer, the water taxi departs every couple of hours from this same spot, which is part of the marina. A manned gate for security. Right on the Vert #1 bike path, across from the Olympic park. If you just want easy and close access to the city, this is a great choice.
Wooded sites, well spaced, easy access with our motorhome. Centrally located in the park. Your entertainment is the park, not the campground, We saw moose on the Side of the road. This campground s perfect for the old railroad bicycle trail, which we enjoyed. A great choice if visiting the park. Friendly staff. No WiFi.
Canada's municipal parks are great. This was no exception. About 15 minutes to downtown. It seems very secluded, next to a greenway bike route, with heavily wooded sites not too close to each other. WiFi was available in the office, adequate for email, but slow Very clean. We would absolutely sty here gain if visiting Ottawa.
This park was well located for our trip to Niagara Falls. We went early in the season and had lots of room. It could get tight when it is full. The gentlemen's club across the street and the railroad track is a non-issue. The KOA is just a few hundred yards down the street and has the same proximity to the tracks. Easy access for our motorhome. Staff was friendly and helpful. WiFi available at the office, not on your site. We would definitely stay here again.
Gouldings is a well organized and well run campground. Reservations are a must in season. The pull-through sites were easy to access and plenty long and level. Not much shade, but some. Not my preferred type of campground, with sites within feet of each other and no separation. However, it's the only game in town and it's good at what it does. Good Internet access.
Rifle Gap has multiple loops. We stayed in Sage, which is basic only with no hookups. The rate includes a $7 a day park fee. Full hookup sites are $8 more. We had Sage all to ourselves and just dumped and filled in the morning at the dump station. Very large, level, pull thru sites, with decent separation. We overnighted here and would repeat.
We overnighted here and really liked this park. Very nice, large, level, paved sites with good separation and shade. This park reinforced why we love state and NFS parks. Most sites are electric only. Only a few miles off the interstate. The restrooms, sites, roads, and pads were in excellent condition. We and would definitely stay here again. We even fit in a 10 mile bicycle ride along the Missouri on the parks trail.
This campground is a decent choice if you want to stay in Beckley. We should have followed the sign to the campground directly onto Ewart Street and ignored the sign saying No Trucks. There are no impediments to big rig access on this road; although, the entry and campground road is tight. We enjoyed the coal mine museum and tour. It was OK for an overnight, but next time I would probably choose a campground in a state park or national forest.
Regarding earlier comments, RT 211 is a typical canyon area entry road. it has some steeper sections, but is fully paved. We had no problem getting here in our 39' motorhome. We had a nice spot in front of a bluff with lots of separation. This is dry camping, no hook ups. There is a water station where we filled our tank. The campground loop has some ruts, but go slow and they are fine. It has great access to the needles section of Canyonlands NP. Bring a jeep or be prepared to hike to enjoy the Canyonlands. The lady is a bit flaky, but we got along just fine. Good Internet access at the camp store but not from your site. We would stay here again. Cash only, no credit cards.
We used this as an Interstate stopover.. All sites are back-in, but plenty long and level for big rigs. It's right on the North Platte, bring your fishing rods. Minimal shade. Water is only directly available to a few sites and are really communal water stations for all. You have to pay a park fee in addition to the camping fee, which is included in the rate shown. A little hard to find, the road signs are minimal. We would stay here again.
Lynnville Park is a local county park which is mainly a fishing, family, small lake park for area residents. Full hookup sites are pretty close. Electric/water sites have more room, but the pull throughs barely accommodated our 39' motorhome plus toad. Site was very level with a gravel pad. We only paid the primitive rate of $10 a night since we didn't hookup. This was a nice interstate stopover. We would stay there again. The sites were a little too close for our tastes, especially the full hookup, hence the slightly lower rating.
Devils Garden is your only choice if you want to stay in Arches. It is 18 miles into the park, at the very end of the main road. Reservations are needed. We stayed here in late September and the park was full. The sites are gravel, fairly level, but short. Our site required that we have the back end of the motorhome over top of the fire pit in order to get fully in. (no fire that night!). Generators are restricted to 2 hours in the morning and 4 hours in the evening. The hosts were very congenial. We stayed here in a 39' motorhome. Rated lower due to the length issues of the site.
This park is located on the south side of the city, high on a hill with great views. Sites were nicely level, with terraced patios. Separation was about 20'. Very nice clean facility with easy access and friendly staff. Internet was very slow and difficult to connect. Otherwise, we enjoyed our overnight here and would use it again.
OK. First, no hookups. In return, you get lots of space between sites, typically 100 feet or more, good shade, campfires, all the things I love about NFS campgrounds. The trailer sites inside the Grand Canyon park are very close, almost no separation, and no trees. The other commercial RV park is also tight with little vegetation, if any (we drove through it). Ten-x is about 6 miles outside the Grand Canyon, but well worth it. The toilets were the cleanest pit style I've ever seen and didn't even smell. We would definitely return here. Our reserved site was not very level, but the very nice campground hosts moved u, even letting us go the wrong way on the loop to get the patio side towards the picnic table.
This was a great park for overnighting on I40. The staff was friendly, Sites were level, shaded, close. It is next to the airport, but we didn't notice anything during the night. Internet was very slow. Its right on the east edge of town. We saw the ones on the west side as we left and were glad we made this choice. Those are farther out and not shaded.
Nice, clean park with lots of privacy for each site. Our site was clean and raked prior to our arrival. Large, level, shaded, gravel pads. Our site was right next to the lake. Look over the sites when reserving and it's easy to find the ones on the water. We only stayed here one night, but plan to return for a longer visit to Nashville.
This park is right next to the entrance to Mesa Verde. It is very clean and the staff was friendly and helpful. The sites were mostly level, gravel, with some shade trees. No campfires are permitted, but they provide two nice propane pit fires with ample seating for friends, available to all. A nice heated pool and two hot tubs are available as well. It is very close to the main road, but the road nose was minimal. We would definitely camp here again. Large pull thru and back in sites. Internet was slow but worked. We stayed in a premium back in site with good shade. The large pull through sites have no shade. Nice clean laundromat.
