I'm not sure what campground the other people are talking about but we stayed there for almost 3 weeks and this is what they have. Decomposing toilets (no flush), some sites with electric (you pay $5 per night extra for them), no sites with full hookups, dump station but the fresh water was not working, fresh water available around the loops. This is a FS campground but it is run by the RMRC concessionaires. Most of the sites are very long and can accommodate large rigs but most will need a little leveling. You can reserve through "reserve.gov" or recreation.gov but it is not a very busy campground except on weekends. It is 17 miles north of Dolores then another 5 miles on a FS road (paved). There is almost NO phone service but occasionally we could get a signal for the computer and could text on the phone. We love this place with its spectacular views of McPhee Lake and easy access to the boat ramp. It is quite open with very few trees and can get quite hot in the summer but in September it is comfortable.
Because the CG is on the inside of the levee it is close to the Mississippi River and prone to flooding. It is probably one of the strangest parks we have stayed in. When we got there most of the permanent residents had moved out because of a flood and were expected back at any time. The man in the office was a little rattled and confused. The restrooms were modern but could have used some extra cleaning. The free WIFI was fast and reliable. Lots of gnats and flies.
We stayed there over the 4th of July and made reservations on the day the system opened in March and got the last site available. Very busy!!!! But a well kept park. There is a large lake with boating, fishing and beach along the many miles of trails. Every working person we ran into was about 16 years old (except for the construction workers)and didn't seem to have any mature adults supervising them. The restrooms were modern but so busy it was nearly impossible to keep them clean.
This is a very nice campground. Full of fisherman and their boats. Nicely kept. Very near the water for boating, fishing, and swimming in the Missouri River. It used to be run by the COE but now is managed by the local Native American tribe who run the casino near by. The sites are very roomy and our 40' RV fit well but it can get very busy on weekends and when there are fishing tournaments. Verizon was OK but not good. Mobridge is a quaint little town with two grocery stores.
This is a lovely SP in a great location with easy to get into sites. Plenty large and well spaced. NO cell service to speak of. Located at the base of the caverns. The only bad thing is the price. For a SP $29 is way too high. Seems they give MT residents a break but with such a low population it sure doesn't cost them very much to do so. I highly recommend the cave tour.
Great COE campground! Friendly hosts, very large and well spaced sites with 30/50 electric. Water available throughout the park but not at the sites. Some restrooms were vault and some were flush with showers. Lots of shade trees but lots of open space too. No water access from the CG but multiple access close by. The CG sits below the dam and is within walking distance to the lovely visitors center. As a side, the town of Fort Peck has a wonderful summer theater that is very well attended. There are also a variety of FREE campsites around the waters edge down stream.
Even though it was early May when we stopped, there were very few site large enough to accommodate our 40' rig. It advertises large sites most of them are small and VERY tight. We were told that if someone comes in next to us we may have to bring our slideouts in. Convenient to town but the road noise is loud on the street side sites. Lots of trucks! The Wi-Fi was good, the people pleasant, and the laundry and restrooms very clean. The trees make it a little tight to maneuver but they are trimmed well enough to make it safe. We would stay there again but would have a reservation early for one of the larger sites.
Nice little park. Stopped to check it out because of RV Park Reviews. At $200 plus electricity a month it can't be beat. Sites are fairly level, dirt and gravel, but plenty big for our 40' 4 slide outs. Good 50 amp electricity and WIFI. Restrooms/showers are modern and exceptionally clean. Quiet nights and beautiful star filled skies. Hwy 93 is a very busy road but it quiets down at night. Small town of Wikieup has a PO and convenience store but no groceries to speak of, you have to travel to Kingman (45 miles away) for any shopping. More than friendly owners. Our toad wouldn't start when we got there and they were a great help in getting it going. We highly recommend this place if you are traveling through or want a nice place to relax for a while.
This is a lovely, quiet campground. Let me emphasize, campground. It is not a resort by any stretch of the imagination. The restrooms were very clean and well taken care of as was the laundry room (except for the smelly cat in a cage there). The dirt road you travel for more than a mile is rough and only one lane. If another large rig were to have come in the opposite way we would have been in trouble. The sites are long and level but they are gravel and with the recent rains, quite soft for our MH legs. They advertise WiFi friendly but they are no so friendly when you are any distance from the laundry. We stayed there because of the PPA discount but would not have driven so far out in the country on a dirt road for a CG that charges $35 per night.
This is a forest service campground. Sites are paved and plenty long enough for our 40' MH but we needed to cut some branches that were in the way of slides. Water available around the park. Nice trail around the small lake. Less than a mile to the ocean. There are ATV dunes close by but no ATV's in the campground. There is a horse campground just up the road and ATV campground across the street. Good Verizon internet service but marginal phone service. Only 4 miles to Coos Bay for shopping. Price reflect Old Age Pass.
What a lovely park. I can't believe that it hasn't been reviewed before. Run by the COE, it is very clean. Sites are very large; some in the sun and some in the shade. Verizon service is OK but need the amp for the internet. Restrooms are very clean. The only draw back is the NO ALCOHOL rule, even at your site. The ranger made DH pour out his glass of wine.
The cost reflects Senior Pass + electricity. Lovely park. Although for a 40' MH it was a little tight getting into. It is concessionaire run, rather than volunteer and that probably accounted for the not so clean restrooms. The concessionaires are also responsible for the trimming of the trees too, so that accounts for the scratches on the rig. It is VERY shady in most of the park and most sites turn to mud when it rains. Verizon signal was just OK, had to use the antenna and amp for the internet. But all that being said we appreciated the electricity and enjoyed our weeks stay.
This is a Forest Service CG so therefore does not have hook-ups, but there is an abundant number of faucets spread around the park and very clean restrooms with flush toilets. The sites are very roomy, very level and paved. You are about a 2 mile hike from the quiet beach and the ATV staging area is a short distance down the road (No ATV's allowed in the CG). Verizon service is available but it comes and goes. The price reflects "Old Age Discount".
What a lovely find. If it hadn't been for RV Park Reviews we would never have found this place. Large well spaced sites in an immaculately landscaped setting on a charming little lake. Our government does such a good job of providing these gems for us. Paved roads and sites with water access throughout the park and a well laid out dump station. Boating, fishing and swimming. Verizon cell service is poor, but with an antenna and amp we were able to get on the net. Phone service with Verizon or ATT is iffy.
I didn't know BLM could have such a nice CG. Large, level, paved sites with electric and water at each site. No trees to give shade but some sites have sheltered tables. The views of the lake are spectacular. There is a boat ramp that gets a lot of use but the lake has very few boats on it. Verizon is on extended network but works well with our amp. The dump station has a $5 fee even for campers. We stayed for 5 days and enjoyed every one of them. The small town of Mackay has a very old rundown laundry, a small grocery, and a couple of bars and restaurants.
We were here during Sturgis motorcycle rally but saw very few of them. Very large sites, well separated. Good Verizon signal. Can be busy on weekends but not during the week. SD state park reservation is great even if you don't want to make a reservation you can check for availability. I love SD state parks and there are so many of them.
This is called the Left Tailrace Campground at the COE Big Bend Dam. It was closed for over a year due to damage by the Missouri River Flood in 2011. The sites are level and the pull-throughs are over 60'. Lots of shade trees. Because it is not back on the reservation system, and was late in opening this year because of repair delays, it is not very busy. The restrooms are NOT clean and don't look like they get any regular cleaning. The campground is mowed, but no attention to detail like trimming. Fair Verizon signal. Prices for COE campgrounds have gone up in general but with Golden Age it was $9 per night. There are scattered water faucets and the dump station is about a 1/4 mile down the road.
South Dakota SP are wonderful, well kept parks usually on water like this one. Remember that there is an entrance fee on top of the camping fee. If you plan on staying more than 5 nights in any of SD parks you would do well to buy their pass for $30. Very busy on week ends during the summer, but almost always available during the week. The sites are nice and long, well spaced and have been kept quite level. There are some very close trees in the lower loop that made it a little hair raising to get around. Bathrooms are nice and well cleaned. Verizon signal is just OK.
You have to travel pretty far back along Kaw Lake to find these COE campgrounds, but they are well worth the trip. Very large sites. Most are not level, but some are. Good Verizon service. Tables, grill, fire pit. This park was built in the 60's so the roads can be a little narrow but easy to manage. The restrooms were old but clean. Only one restrooms with flush toilets per loop, the rest are pit toilets. Water is available but not at the sites. 30amp electric was reliable. Not busy in April, but I can imagine in the summer with the beautiful lake it can get busy. The gate closes at 10pm, but arrangements can be made with the hosts to have it opened. We paid 1/2 price for old age so $9 was well worth it. We would definitely come back and stay longer.
What a great view on the lake! but this is a typical old state park with sites that are not level and very difficult to get into with anything over 25'. Because it was the off season we had our choice of sites and were able to get our 40' MH into a site. The turns were very tight and lots of tree branches. I suggested to the park employee that they trim some of the trees on the sharp turns but it went in one ear and out the other. Good Verizon service and large accommodating dump station.
We stopped here because it looked nice for the price advertised of $8/$10. Indeed it is a nice little park but they only have 30amp and no sewer, although they do have a dump station. We checked the website just 30 minutes before arriving and the price was $8/$10 but at the gate it was $15/$20 (that is week days and weekend days, price change in effect on March 1st, 2013 and this is April 20. Easy in and out and large pull-thrus. Good Verizon service.
We have traveled extensively in the past 16 years and this has got to be one of the worst ever. For $50 a night I expect more. The site is so unlevel that our from wheels would have to come off the dirt to make us level. And talk about dirt; the dust is so bad that you can hardly see across the lane. Although we do not use the restrooms we did look in them and say that, even though we paid $50 for a night of 30 amp, you would have to pay 25 cents per minute to take a shower. The sites are very close. We checked in at 10 am, and even though the sight was empty, we were not allowed to move on to it until 11 am. The WiFi is good. The clerk was pleasant but hemmed and hawed about finding us a site.
I would have given this place a 10 if it were not for the wind, although it was not constant. Wonderful hiking, lovely information center, big sites. Water was good and close to sites. Dump station was very easily accessible. Spectacular views and clear skies. Some light pollution from Vegas. We stayed there 4 nights and it never filled, yet the host said that was their busy Easter weekend. Cost was $12 but they honor Senior pass for 50% off. The nearly 20 mile road from I-40 was in very good condition. Beyond the campground it was dirt and washboard. Too rough for our rig.
We were looking for a site as close to I90 as possible and saw this place on RVReview. Because it was the day before the 4th of July there was no one in the office to pay, so I called their emergency number and was told welcome and just put a check under the door. Just a gravel parking lot with level pull throughs and good 50amp electric. Would say there again for a stop over.
We had seen this park on previous trips and after trying to go the nearby state park where we found it too difficult for our 40' MH, we returned to the Kellogg RV for the night. Nice people, easy, long and level pull throughs, and good 50amp electricity for the 102* temps. Would definitely stay here again
Very large sites. Weak phone signal, but usable. Quiet except for the bridge noise on Hwy 191. Had no problem getting our 40' MH in. Water available at the sign-in kiosk. Take off spot for rafters near the main building. Loop A is for tents, loop B for bigger rigs. All dirt roads so the dusty got to be a problem when the wind picked up. We paid the senior price of $5 per night.
This is primitive camping. No designated campsites. You can drive your rig down to the beach if you like, and a lot of people do but it is sand and there is always a chance you can get stuck. There is a parking area for large rigs up on the hill near the dump station with a spectacular view of the lake. Although there is a dog leash rule no one obeys it and dogs run loose everywhere. This is also an ATV area so the noise can be annoying at times but they are not allowed after dark. Kayaking is great from here with slot canyons you can paddle into. We paid $5 per night with our senior pass.
This is one of three OH state parks that I have stayed in, and all are about the same. The sites are big and spaced far apart. The landscaping is well done. The electric box is in need of updating but power is reliable. As has happened in other OH state parks they close the restrooms around November 2nd with no notice or warning. All water in the loops is turned off in October. The only fresh water is at the dump station 1/2 mile away, but you have to drive around checking the water faucets to find that out because there is no one here to ask. The restrooms when they were open, were dirty and in need of repair. The only time I saw any employee go in with a broom, they came back out in less than 2 minutes. I know that the states are hard pressed to fund the parks, but if you are going to keep them open you should take care of them.
This is a typical NP CG because the restrooms need a lot of tender loving care but location is the key. The miles and miles of beaches are beautiful the Ft. Pickes is very interesting, both very easy access from the campground by trail or bike the road. Sites were roomy w/table and fire ring. They have a reservation system and I would recommend using it because it can get busy on weekends.
The first night we pulled in the water had not been turned on so we were not charged. Good 50 amp power. Easy long pull throughs. Clean restrooms with one very private shower. Tables but no fire rings. Very easy access to the dump station. Nice bike trail about 1/4 mile down the road that leads into Shelly. Close to Idaho Falls for shopping. We were the only people there for the week but were told that it gets VERY busy in the summer. There are tennis courts and playground nearby and a small horse arena in the back. The park is right along the Snake River but the CG sets back a little.
We almost didn't stay here because the address on the website sent us out into the farm countryside and a farmer had to let us turn around in his field. I guess the new owners (2 months) knew about the bogus address and hadn't gotten around to fixing it yet. Nice place though. Clean, friendly, lower prices than a typical KOA and very easy in and out for large rigs. The sites are dirt and soft enough to make our front level sink. We definitely would stay there again (now that we know where it is).
What a great BLM campground! Easy access from the hwy, large sites and beautiful views. There are no hookups and no dump station, but if you are prepared for that or you just want to stay the night it is wonderful. It can get windy in the canyon. They allow you to stay as long as you like and because the cost is low there are some people that look like they have been around for a while. It is nice to find small quiet places like this that are easy to get our 40' MH into.
This is part of the NP system and has been around for quite a while. With our 40' MH it was a tight squeeze but there are a few sites that fit but you have to get there at the right time. It is first come first serve so get there early or during the middle of the week to find a suitable site. Being so close to Vegas it can get very busy on weekends. The dump station is easy to access along with the fresh water. Because of the large trees the view of the lake is minimal unless you are luck to get a site up front. Great bike trails and lots to do. Tours of the dam are very expensive and parking is limited so be prepared to walk long distances.
Although there are no hookups it is a very interesting place. The sites are mostly very large pull-throughs with covered table, fire pit with a great view of the lake. There are no trees to cause trouble driving around, but that means no shade either. Access to the island is by a long causeway and there is a $3 fee to cross it. Reservations are by computer and easy to make with an $8 fee, but there are also some walk in sites available. Weekends are busy but it is quiet during the week, at least they are in April/May. There is a dump station and fresh water at the beach area along with pay showers. Watch out for the bison that roam free around the CG. We stayed there a week and enjoyed it a lot.
Al thought the sites were sandy they were level and packed well for our 40' MH. Large sites with privacy from your neighbors. The restrooms were large, easily accessed and VERY clean thanks to the great hosts. We would definitely stay there again.
This park was open because of the Amazon employees who were staying there. Beautiful views of the lake. The were W/D available and plenty of restrooms that were kept clean with lots of hot water. We would definitely stay there again.
This is a lovely park with sites that can accommodate large rigs and each site is secluded from the next. We stayed in the off season and chose a site that no one told us would be closed a day later. We chose the site because it was close to the restroom because of the lack of water at the sites. They allowed us to stay at the site but closed the all but one restroom at the front of the CG. It has been a long time since I have seen restrooms a poor as these. Paint peeling off the walls and VERY dirty. Ohio could do a much better job. If they want to keep the parks open they have to keep the staff to manage them.
