This is probably the best park in Ruidoso. It has nicely spaced sites. The roads are paved and the sites are gravel. All facilities are kept very clean. There was a large meeting room but no planned activities to use it. The laundry is small but adequate. The clubhouse is comfortable but they need to toss all the old magazines and brochures laying around and start from scratch. The big plus for this park is that it has the best Wi-Fi we've ever used in a RV park. It was super fast any time of the day/night. Thank you!
We had a hard time finding a level site without a patio. We finally had to choose a patio site for more money. There have been comments about seeing the city lights at night. This is only true if you have the perfect site. Not all sites will give you this. There are some permanent folks living here and a couple had sites that needing cleaning up. The roads and sites are gravel. The restrooms and showers are nicely tiled and kept clean. The small laundry had three broken dryers. There is a nice meeting room but no planned activities to enjoy it. They do serve coffee in the morning. The walking path is very pleasant. It's a very quiet area. This is a 'unique' park in appearance. Some might call it eclectic rustic. There are many pieces of old farm machinery setting around. There are many modern sculptures setting around. There are many overgrown weeds surrounding all of this, including along the sites. There are pretty wildflowers but they are taken over by weeds. As we were leaving, the entrance area was finally cleared of weeds and it looked so much better and inviting. Overall, this is a nice park.
The sites are very short for big rigs, the parking space is narrow and the utilities in a very poor location. We were given a pull-thru and couldn't stay connected mainly because we'd have to park the RV at the very front edge of the site to accommodate the car. Since all hookups are at the opposite rear end of the site we would have needed at least two, 20' sewer hose connections. The picnic tables were in bad condition and there was no shade. A big portion of this park has permanent park models. We were warned about the water taste but were told they were putting in park-wide reverse osomosis. The pool was small but nice and the office was friendly on check-in. There is absolutely nothing to do in the immediate area. The park is fairly far north of Tucson and south of Casa Grande. There aren't any restaurants except for a Dairy Queen. We would not return.
This is a very nice state park and fairly new. The sites in the Westside campground are huge and are all full hookups with 50 amp. There is another campground near the sand dune area that is mostly used by ATVers and we didn't see it. There is a lake and is in a pretty setting. The bathrooms and showers were very clean. It would be extremely hot in summer. Verizon cell and aircard worked well.
We called for a reservation and when we arrived we were assigned one on the rear row for our 40' RV. The electric only read a dangerously low 105V with 30A (the 50A slot had tape over it)and we didn't even have anything plugged in. This was very unsatisfactory to us so after much time trying to convince the office that this was a low reading, we were finally moved to the second row where we had good 50A. We didn't use the W-Fi but Verizon cell and air card worked well. The facilities are clean but as everyone stated, the park roads are very narrow and the traffic noise is loud. The office was very friendly when we checked in. We probably would not stay again.
This is a private park which requires an Escapees membership. It's the most un-friendly Escapees park we've been. The short-term rental sites have poor electric and parking is on gravel in a long row. Internet by your own means is very poor as is Verizon cell. There is Wi-Fi in the clubhouse. There are very few clubhouse activities except cards and member meetings which were always being held making the clubhouse not very socialable. The park's web site is very poor as it's so outdated with park content and it's a mish-mash of links, most of which don't even work. It's very poorly organized. The members keep to themselves unless you make an effort to talk to them. No one wears nametags as the other Escapee parks do, and it just gives the impression of aloofness. The flowers in the park and the laundry room are the best parts.
We pulled in to an empty building with a fee drop box stating $30-$36 rates. This is a gravel parking lot with no one around. There was a rough, handwritten sign saying "use bathrooms at the nearby state park" which I'll bet the state park appreciates. With the closed-down building and no bathrooms and no laundry, as advertised, we most certainly were not going to pay those prices. We left without staying.
This was a very pleasant one-night stop for us. The owner was friendly and helpful and even gave us some home-grown tomatoes. The small campground was in the rear of the property with beautiful trees and lawns. A well-kept RV service/store is on the front property and the owners live on-site. Our 40' motorhome easily fit into the pull-through. The ad states 30/50A but ours was only 30A which was no big deal to us. There is no sewer hookup but there is a dump station. The interstate noise was minimal because of the trees blocking most of it out. Our visit was in September and we had no cow odors as someone mentioned in a previous post. We didn't even see cows. The restrooms were clean. The road was one-way but we had no problems negotiating the campground. The owners seem to be very particular about the gorgeous lawns so this is probably a more adult-oriented park with small dogs only. We had excellent Verizon phone and internet. There is also Wi-Fi which we didn't try. We would definitely stay again.
We have a 40' motorhome and stayed in the Catfish Loop. The Brownlee Loop has more trees and 10' hedges along the sites giving some privacy but for a big rig we would recommended the more open, Catfish Loop. We only had 30A and it was 90 degrees so 50A would have been better for our two air conditioners. We had good Verizon phone and internet. The river/reservoir was very low at this time of year. There is a dump station and boat ramp. The park is one mile from the interstate making it a good overnight stop. However, other than fishing there isn't much else to do in the park or the area.
Can't imagine the previous rating of a '10'. This is an absolutely terrible park. Dogs were running loose and droppings not cleaned up. The bathrooms were dirty. We needed a place for a night and this barely fit the bill. We'd never stay here again.
There is a lot of highway noise. During our stay of 3 nights the toilets were not cleaned. The laundry room was filthy. Folks use the machines for washing dog blankets and there was dog hair all around. The machine tops were very dirty and didn't looked like they were cleaned for a long time. They should be washed daily. We really needed to do laundry so I cleaned a few of them myself to use. We would not stay again.
We stayed in the 'B' loop with our 40' motorhome which has the bigger, more open sites. The park was well kept and the bathrooms very clean. We had site B11 and there were six sites in this small loop. However, there is absolutely no sitting area privacy in the loop as they are all facing each other. We had a very noisy group next to us. We would choose one of the back in spots if we ever return. The 'A' loop has a lot of trees and the sites aren't conducive to bigger RVs. There are eight full hookup sites and many cabins and yurts to rent. There are miles of paved walking/biking trails. We were disappointed that there really is no river access. Our Verizon didn't work great.
We stayed here with a 40' motorhome and the price reflects our Golden Age card. The Duck Loop is best for big rigs. None of the loops are directly on the lake, but there is a very nice day use area with a large beach. There are water spigots in each loop, but no direct hookups. There is a dump station. We were here off-season so not many were here, but in the prime summer/fall seasons it would be advisable to have reservations. The mountain/lake views are gorgeous. We would definitely stay again.
We wanted a reasonably priced place to stay while visiting the area and this fit the bill for that. We got a Good Sam discount. However, it's definitely not an attractive one, but that's to be expected for a fairgrounds. It's a gravel parking lot and the surrounding neighbors had barking dogs and music blaring. There was also a 'cross fit' event going on and the campground had a lot of party goers and kids running around uncontrolled. Management did nothing about it. We came in on a Thursday and management was turning away 'normal' RVers saying the campground will be booked up for the weekend with the event. We had reservations, so were allowed to stay. As it turned out, it wasn't nearly full so turning away folks was not necessary. The bathrooms were not cleaned daily. The park is very difficult to get to off 101 with so much traffic.
This is a top-notch RV park. Everything was well-cared for and the individual bathrooms were nicely tiled and immaculate. The laundry room was also immaculate. We have a 40' motorhome and easily fit on the site. Our Verizon worked great. A note to pet owners - none are allowed on the grass. There is a small clubhouse for groups. The solar heated pool is very small and we didn't use it this early in the season. Propane is sold and there is a small store. The cafe was not opened yet. We would definitely stay again.
We stayed with a 40' motorhome and easily fit into our site. The B Loop is best for large RVs. The roads and sites are paved and the campground is well kept with large shade trees. There are miles of paved biking/walking trails. None of the sites are on the lake as there is a steep bluff. There is a day use area to drive to that offers swimming, a boat launch and boat rentals along with a small store. This park is a convenient spot to tour Crater Lake and various waterfalls and access to fishing spots on the river. We would definitely stay again.
The restrooms/showers were very nice with tile. One-half of the sites were in sun. The beach area was nice and there's a boat ramp. Although our 40' motorhome fit into our site, the majority of sites were much smaller. The sites are also very close to each other unlike most state parks. This is also a park that attracts boaters and fishermen. We were here mid-May and the temperature was 117 degrees! There is only 30 amp available so we could only run one air conditioner which wouldn't catch up with the heat. Because of the 30A and close sites we would not return.
The park is very clean including the restrooms and showers. It offers Tengo Wi-Fi which we didn't use. Our Verizon air card worked very fast. Although big rigs (40') can fit here, the sites are very limited because of tree overhangs, rocks and narrow sites. The office staff had no clue as to what size RV would fit on a site. We had to go around and look ourselves and some of them that they chose would never work for a 40' motorhome. We had a pull-through but had to back into it because of making a turn with an overhanging tree. Some serious tree-trimming is needed in the park. We were also offered sites #1-18 completely surrounded with 2-3' boulders on narrow sites. Those aren't good for a long motorhome. We were shocked at the $40 charge. Because of that we probably will not stay again.
We rented a space from a friend. We arrived just after Labor Day and the pool and spa were closed already. There was nothing going on in the dreary clubhouse other than card games. The bathrooms had tiles falling off, low lighting and showed of age. There are so many lots for sale and the upkeep (weeds) on those lots are horrible looking. This park is very dated. There are too many close-together park models with no breathing space. If the transient slots were filled they would be very tight spaces.
We really enjoy boondocking but this state park was awful. It was packed with RVs and day users. The toilet was filthy. We had a hard time even getting out of there with our 40' motorhome. We have seen better views elsewhere and that's exactly what we did - moved elsewhere. It's also a very dangerous place for children. Please keep watch on them. Even though it's free it wasn't enough incentive to try and stay - even if we could have found a spot.
This is a nice, well-kept concessionier forest service campground. Our 40' motorhome fit fine. We didn't have reservations mid-week but they would be necessary during the summer and holidays. It's a busy park for fishing and boating. The roads and sites are paved and there is a dump station. The bathrooms had flush toilets, were tiled and even had soap dispensers. This is very unusual for a forest service campground. Our rate was with the Senior Pass.
We didn't have reservations but they are recommended because of being a busy park. We didn't like the check-in process of the ranger assigning our site. We'd rather choose our own. She gave us a "big" site, as she stated, for our 40' motorhome. When we got to it, it was a narrow, short, uneven pull-off along side of the road. When our two slideouts were extended they were extending into the road. We checked all the other open sites and chose a better one and returned to the office. Our site was changed. However, just after setting up a ranger came by and said our site was reserved for the night. However, it was not marked on the post as being reserved. So we had to move to another site for the third time. The office seemed very disorganized. The restrooms were clean. The winds came up occasionally so be prepared to bring in your awning and outside chairs, etc. will get dusty. The only shade here is received via a nice shelter around the picnic table. There are some hikes, but not easy. It's a remote area so bring all groceries.
This campground is in a very pretty desert setting on the huge Snake River. There are hiking trails and disc golf. The campground has very curvy, narrow roads with junipers and large boulders along the edge. This and the small sites makes it difficult to use with a 40' motorhome. However, there are a handful of sites that would work. The 30A electric was low with only one air conditioner running. It gets very hot here so air is suggested. There is a dump station and informative visitor center along with a boat ramp. Other than the park itself, there is nothing to do and no stores in the immediate area. Monday through Thursday seniors get 1/2 off the camp fee which is very generous. We did see some black widow spiders in the corners of the very clean vault toilet rooms and one on a coat hook and there is a tick warning posted for the grasses, so be careful.
We barely fit into Site #1 with our 40' motorhome because of trees and large boulders at the edge. We would not recommend this park for RVs bigger than 35'. The roads are narrow and curvy to maneuver. We had a site with no hookups and that loop was at the lake. The upper loop had electric but was not lakeside. Unfortunately, the lake was full of algae but fish were being caught. Gas motors on boats are not allowed but ATVs riding throughout the campground are allowed which made for a very noisy Labor Day weekend. There are hiking trails and the lake setting is pretty. There is a free dump station approximately 1/2 mile from the park. The electric loop had clean flush toilets and showers but the dry camp area had vault toilets. There are a lot of day visitors fishing here. Because of the site situation for big rigs we would not return.
The sites have nice lawns and are big. Our 40' motorhome fit just fine. There are many trees for shade. There are non-hookup sites which would be great for tenters. The other two loops have good 50A electric and water and some have sewer. There is a very large dump station area. The bathrooms are clean, large and have nice showers. The hosts and office personnel were very helpful. We chose a river site for an added cost but were very disappointed because there were only peek-through areas of river because of the thick growth of bushes, trees and tall grass. There was no river access from the campsites. There is a huge, very nice beach area within walking distance and a boat launch. This is a boaters paradise and many campers brought them. Definitely do not try to check in before 2:00 because you're not allowed due to watering of the grass at the vacant sites. We got here at 11:00am and had to wait until 2:00! In the meantime, across the river in Clarkson, WA is a super WalMart and Costco which gladly took some of our money! We didn't have reservations for two nights prior to Labor Day weekend but all sites are booked for the weekend. I would expect all weekends are the same for this popular park. Our Verizon air card and phone worked great!
This makes a good overnight if traveling along Hwy. 26. The fairgrounds is 5 miles west of Colfax right along the highway. The entrance is on Endicott Road and then take the second immediate driveway to the RV section. Parking is at the north rear of the fairgrounds complex so there is no traffic noise. There is good signage. All sites are pull-through and are on thick, lush grass. There are no trees. Our 40' motorhome with towed was easily maneuverable. There is good 30A electric and good water at each site. There is a dump station which requests $5 for campers and $10 for non-campers. Payment for the $15 campsite is by envelope in a drop box. We would stop again.
The sites are well-spaced. We have a 40' motorhome and we had to choose a double site ($38 regular; $19 w/Golden Age Pass) because what was left in single sites were small. Reservations are definitely recommended here. It's very busy. Also, for big rigs, you really can't go by the site size on the reservation site because of huge trees at the corner of the sites, rocks, slant of sites and narrow campground road. There is no dump station. This is very convenient for touring Mt. St. Helens and Mt. Ranier parks. Hwy 25 to the campground is paved but narrow and bumpy. It's not steep. There is very little river access here because of a steep bluff. Verizon or Sirius satellite radio did not work in this thick forest.
The park itself, is very nice. It has good spacing between sites and there's lush grass in this desert. All sites are full hookup with 30A. There is no dump station. Most sites have a view of the Columbia River. Yes, it does get windy here. It awoke me at 2am and I went out to close the window awnings because they were shaking so much. As retirees, we would not stay again but if you have a family, a boat, jet skis and dogs, you'd probably love it. Reservations are highly recommended. There's a nice beach area. Our 40' motorhome would probably fit in most sites but some are uneven. Since it was extremely hot during the day, the 30A and being able to use only one air conditioner really taxed it. Other than water activity, there's nothing to do in the immediate area. There are a couple fuel stops on I-90, 3 miles north of the park, and they have limited groceries.
Cottonwood campground is one of five campgrounds in this state park. This loop only has eight sites, including the host. It is very quiet. We had 50A electric and water hookups. The toilet was very clean. This park is in a beautiful setting along a large reservoir. The best loops for our 40' motorhome would be Cottonwood, Lakeview and Cedar. Sage and Pinon are for tents and small RVs.
This review is for the Pa-Co-Chu-Puk campground within the state park. This area has full hookups and is ideal for big rigs with many pull throughs. We arrived after Labor Day when reservations are not accepted and had no problem getting a site. The restrooms and attached laundry were immaculate. We were in the river loop which is quieter than the other loop which is closer to the highway. Two ponds and the river is accessible from this campground. The large reservoir is accessible only from the Dakota Terraces and Elk Ridge campgrounds which are three miles away although there is a hiking trail connecting to the reservoir. There are miles of nice hiking trails in this park. The $33 nightly rate includes the $7 daily fee. The Colorado state park annual fee for non-residents is $70 so it's worthwhile buying the annual if staying in any of the state parks more than ten days a year.
This quiet campground is 34 miles east of Meeker on C.R.8. It is in the White River National Forest. The last mile is excellent gravel. There are two loops but only the east one is open and it has 29 sites. Many would accommodate our 40' motorhome. The vault toilets were very clean. The sites are very large and private. The North Fork River is across the campground on C.R.8 but not accessible from the campground because of high vegetation. There are numerous access areas along C.R.8. The whole loop is reservable until Labor Day. We arrived the Thursday before Labor Day and were the only ones there. It didn't fill over the holiday.
We arrived after Labor Day when no reservations accepted but plenty of sites open. Our 40' motorhome would fit in about 10 sites, although the trees need trimming over the entrance road for high RVs. The vault toilets were clean. This campground is at 7800' elevation on the Crystal River. County Road 3 comes into Hwy 133 at the north side of McClure Pass and is easy to miss. County Road 3 leads to Marble. The campground is one mile off Hwy 133.
This is a large, nice state park at 8,000' elevation. It has nice scenery and a large lake. We stayed is Aspen Grove campground which doesn't have hookups. Aspen sites 209-227 aren't good for an RV over 35'. There are too many untrimmed trees and bushes at the edge of the driveways and at the corners and the road is narrow for turns into the sites. Aspen sites #201-208 are very open, with shelters, and are good for 40' RVs. Early Settler campground has water and electric hookups and the sites are good for a 40' RV. They have a higher fee. They are very open. There is no cell service here. The bathrooms, including the vault toilets were clean. There is a dump station. You cannot ride your OHV in the park but there is a staging area by the Visitor Center for parking and easy access to the Grand Mesa National Forest.
This park is good for passing through the city. There are many long-term renters/area workers here. The sites are reasonably spaced with a table. There are two sewer connections - one toward the rear and one in the middle. This is a good touch. The employees were friendly. As stated previously, the park is surrounded by industrial businesses which is a big downside. The park is well kept and the bathrooms very clean.
This is an excellent over 55 park - very quiet and 10 miles from Montrose. There aren't many park activities, but there is an occasional potluck and morning coffee and afternoon tea or whatever. The laundry and restrooms are immaculate and the best we've ever seen. All sites are full hookup. The owners are very nice and friendly. The sites are concrete with a nice concrete patio and they are reasonably good spaced. The only objection would be that the lower branches of the trees need trimming for bigger rigs. The monthly rate is $450 including electric. We would return.
This is a gorgeous forest campground but reservations are definitely recommended. It's very popular, especially the one loop of 50A electric sites. This loop has the views! The other three loops are in the pines although a few have limited lake views. The $13 reflects the Golden Age rate with electric. Many sites are very large and our 40' motorhome and Jeep fit great! We would definitely visit again. There are no showers, no dump, no RV water fill but there are water spigots. There is a dump about 5 miles toward Tincup but it's a very dusty road. The campground has paved sites and the Taylor Canyon Road to get there is paved. There is a strong Verizon phone signal but we got only Global Access for internet which was slow but adequate.
This public campground is part of Curecanti National Recreation Area: Blue Mesa. It is 20 miles east of Montrose. The sites for our 40' motorhome and Jeep were very narrow and short. We fit on #5 but it was tight. There aren't any pull-throughs but there are a few pull-along-side-of-the-road sites. The sites are paved and easy access just off Hwy 50. There is a dump station with water fill. The restroom had flush toilets but no showers. There are some trees. It was a scenic area and there's a very nice short hiking trail along the water at the nearby dam area but you have to drive to it. It was a good overnighter but with our long motorhome we'd probably stay at Elk campground next time.
The season is mid-May to mid-Sept. From Durango, go 17 miles north on Highway 550, Turn east (right) onto F.R. 671 (there is a sign) and there is a horse rental corral at the corner, go about one mile on paved one-lane, two-way road. It is very close with a big rig because you will go between two steel posts but it's doable. Look ahead for oncoming vehicles on this stretch. The campground roads are gravel and one lane with one-way signs. It is in a beautiful setting. Only electric motors are allowed on the lake which is trout-stocked. There is a boat ramp and picnic area. The campground receives very heavy usage so if you don't have reservations get there early in the day. 26 sites are reservable and 17 sites have 30/50A electric. The vault toilets are kept very clean and odor-free. The hosts are very friendly. There are no showers, no dump station, no water fill so come prepared. There are water spigots throughout the campground but you can't fill an RV or do any kind of bathing/hair-washing or teeth-brushing, dish-washing which is great! Those activities make a very unsanitary mess of water spigot areas! The spigots are only for filling a pot or small container. Firewood is sold and if a host sees a log overhanging the fire pit you're out of the park - good rule for cutting down on large fires. The sites are mostly in shade and a handful are on the lake. There are various prices - lakeside #39-45 are $22 plus $5 if they have electric. Other electric sites are $17 plus $5 electric. Non-electric sites are $17. Check out is Noon. Verizon phone and air card work great! Elevation is around 8,000 ft. Golden Age Passports are accepted but not for the electric add-on. Approximately one-half of the sites will accommodate a 40' motorhome but since the sites are along a single lane road and there are many trees you have to be careful. This is our third visit and we'll return.
This is a nice campground used mainly by those fishing the nearby San Juan River. There isn't anything nearby to do. However, if you drive 15 miles to Aztec we would highly recommend touring Aztec Nat'l Monument. This campground has a two mile dirt road to it which would be very slippery if raining. The campground itself has paved roads and sites. There are some electric sites but only water spigots placed here and there. There is a dump station and flush toilets. The sites are reasonably spaced but because of the tree overhangs there aren't many for big rigs. However, Site #4 would accommodate you.
First, this is not a "resort". Once here there is nothing to do. All sites are full-hookup and there are clean individual restrooms with showers. There is a small clean laundry. The campground is along Hwy 160 west of Pagosa. The trees are small so no shade. There is good spacing between sites with grass: compared to many other parks. Our Verizon air card worked great but they also have WiFi which we didn't try. It's on the San Juan River but is difficult to use due to steep stairs. They water their grass continually but leave the hoses in the street/walking area overnight which is a hazard if using the bathroom. It's a well-kept campground and about the best in the Pagosa area, and we would return. The price is on the high end though for no amenities.
Our $5 rate (regular $10) is by using our Golden Age Passport on a non-electric site. There are many choices for camping in this pleasant park. With our 40' motorhome we stayed in Chama Loop which has no electric. Pedernal Loop has water and electric sites - $14, Puerco Loop has no electric and there is a nice walk-in Tent Loop for $5. There is a boat ramp with a swimming beach but all campsites are on a bluff overlooking the lake with no access. There is a dump station with a fresh water fill. There are flush and pit toilets and showers. Some sites are reservable.
With our 40' motorhome we stayed in Pinon Beach Campground on Site #64 which was a beauty. Was all by itself on a peninsula with lots of room to park. The only downside was the narrow, dusty road coming to it and the very dusty site. It needs some gravel. We mentioned the narrow road for big rigs and immediately there was tree-trimming in progress. There were other nice sites in Pinon Beach for $10.00 with no hookups in this campground. Grassy Point Campground has the electric and water sites for $14.00. Elk Run Campground has no hookups and is $10.00.There is a boat ramp and the only place to keep your boat in the water is at Pinon Beach Campground. There is a dump station but no potable water there. You will need to drive to one of the hookup sites to get water. The road getting to the campgrounds is all paved and good traveling. This was a more "modern" campground than the nearby "Heron Lake State Park and the lake was much higher and prettier. It was not crowded while we were here, but this was during the week. We had excellent Verizon signal using our Air Card.
Our rate of $5 was with the Golden Age Passport. We visited a week at Memorial Day. When almost everyone left on Monday, a VERY CARELESS CAMPER left his campfire going. We had to call in a 911 for fire equipment. The fire traveled fast and took 5 hours to contain. Please, campers, put water on your campfires!!! This is a typical forest service campground with pit toilets which weren't kept clean by campers or the host. On May 23 the water spigots weren't turned on yet. It was very noisy during the weekend but pleasantly quiet weekdays. There were some sites for our 40' motorhome.
This is a pleasant campground and close enough for either Albuquerque or Santa Fe for touring. It can be reached via I-25 and Exit 259 or Exit 264. The Corps of Engineers web site is not up-to-date. There are now three campgrounds, one group site and a future campground. Juniper and Buffalo Grove Loops have electric. Buffalo Grove is one of the newer loops and has very long sites suitable for the biggest of RVs. Elk Run Loop is also new with large sites but has no electric. Buffalo Grove has water hookups which Juniper has spigots along the camp road. There is a dump station at Juniper but it's small. A bigger, nicer one is near the fee station entrance/hosts when you enter the park. There is a swimming beach and a boat ramp. Our rate of $10 with electric reflects the Golden Age Passport. We would definitely stay here again.
Without reservations we were directed to the Appaloosa Loop with our 40' motorhome which is all non-reservations. We had 30Amp and water hookups. All sites in this loop are pull-throughs with a picnic table shelter and grill. There is a dump station. There are water view sites but you cannot go down to the lake from the campground. There is a boat launch nearby. When it's windy, there is no protection from this and the other two camping loops on the lake. There is another camping area about one mile away called the Riverside Loop. There the pull-throughs are very good for large RVs and there are large trees and wind protection. There are reservable sites at Riverside. The bath houses were very clean in all loops. There are many dry camping sites and a huge group area and playground at the Riverside area. There are 54 electric sites overall. The loops and sites are gravel. There are no hiking trails and there is nothing to do in the immediate area if you don't boat or fish. For that reason we would try nearby Elephant Butte when in the area again where one would be closer to groceries and restaurants and a Wal-Mart in Truth or Consequences.
There are two loops - Cottonwood has 50A electric; Hacienda has 30A. Both loops have big rig sites for a 40' motorhome. The roads and sites are paved and topped with small rock. Some sites are reservable. The bathrooms and showers are old and kept somewhat clean. The bathrooms in the Cottonwood Loop were closed when we were there so it might be wise to check this out beforehand. There is a natural hot spring which seats about eight persons. The outhouse/changing room nearby is awful - smelly and no place to hang clothes. Would recommend changing at your site. The fish able lake is 30 acres and stocked with large mouth bass and Rainbow Trout. Electric motors only are allowed. There are a few cabins to rent. There is a swimming beach at the day use area. There is a dump station with easy entry. The park is located off Hwy 191, 6 miles south of Safford. Safford has good restaurants, groceries and a Super Wal-Mart.
We stayed in one of eleven level 30/50A electric/water sites with our 40' motorhome. Nice spacing and vegetation between sites with rock views. Six are pull-throughs. The other 45 sites are along a somewhat bumpy gravel road but very doable with an RV. Most of the rustic sites are not level for parking RVs but there are a few very nice ones tucked in with the big boulders. There are clean outhouses dispersed throughout. There are also flush toilets and showers at the Visitor Center and a drive would be necessary from most sites. The modern bathrooms are only open 7:30 am to 9pm. There are some trails in the park. The park is in a secluded area between I-10 and Deming and Silver City. A lot of driving is needed for any touring. This park is very nice for short stays but not long-term. The sites are self-check in and if a site is marked as reservable but empty, you can only stay one night at a time which isn't reliable if spending more time because you might have to move.
The narrow campground road and sites have not been updated in many years and many sites are uneven, some even with potholes. Some sites have shade and some very hot in summer in the 100 degree range. There is a dump station with water fill. There are no water hookups and the electric is 30amp. There are no showers. Reservations are a must. Our 40' motorhome and Jeep fit fine but many sites are much smaller. The other campground in in the park is South Campground and the sites are not good for big rigs. There are many overhanging trees. South Campground has no reservations.
We would duplicate what was said in the previous post regarding this nice little park. However, the Exit# off I-15 in Arizona at the Utah border is 18. We have a 40' motorhome and some of the off-the-road pull-offs would accommodate us, but not all. All the backins are very short and are for tents but they are very close together. The bathrooms with flush toilets were immaculate. There are no hookups and no showers. It was 100 degrees plus at the end of September. We would stay again for a night if passing through.
The sites are very close and some of the trees need trimming for bigger rigs. The facilities are clean. Since this is the only park in the immediate area it's best to have reservations. There are many types of sites, pull-throughs, back-ins, sewer or no sewer, tent, no hookups. The laundry was $2 and drying $1 for 30 minutes and the clothes didn't get dry.
The park is all gravel with some trees. 30A is $25; 50A is $30. All sites are full-hookups. There is a small laundry and the restrooms are clean. The host was helpful and friendly. This is an o.k. park if you are doing things in the area. All sites are suitable for big rigs.
This is an exceptional park to stay in the area to tour the Redwoods. The sites have reasonable space with grass. The trees are small so pull-throughs have no shade but there are some backins along the outside that have afternoon shade. The sun is very enjoyable though in this coastal region! The park is immaculate with a nice laundry and bathrooms. The WiFi was iffy but our Verizon cell and air card worked fine. We would definitely stay again.
We wish we had realized that this is a fishing camp. There are boat trailers and trucks parked everywhere. The gravel roads are very narrow. The sites are side-by-side being very close to your neighbor on one side with a decent size patio side. The web site pictures look nothing like it is when the park is full. The 30Amp is low. I had to wash down the washers in the small laundry before use. A fisherman came in and used the laundry tub to wash his boots and to rinse the chunks of dirt from his clothes, then put them in the dryer, unwashed. The floor was filthy and in the restrooms, also. There are only 4 washers for over 100 sites. A worker's dog was tied up on a very long rope in the rain and got tangled around a post, yelping constantly; however, renters are advised to keep dogs on a "short" leash. The rules state that campfires are not allowed in the full hook-up sites, yet there are portable campfire pits in the sites. It amazes me how they received such a high rating with Trailer Life and Woodalls. Perhaps they were pre-warned that they were going to be inspected. We will not stay here again.
There are only a couple pull-through sites and a few that have 50 amp. We had to get a 30 amp. The sites are spacious. Our Verizon air card and phone worked. The office was friendly. This is convenient to Newport. There is a path to the Seal Rock beach but it necessitates crossing Hwy 101. We thought the price was high but so is the whole coast!
We stayed in a full hookup site with our 40' motorhome and Jeep. We found that we could not hookup up to to sewer because of the overhead tree branches. We couldn't back up far enough because it was far in the rear. Verizon doesn't work here. The sites have ample space. The hosts didn't visit the camp areas to enforce rules - dogs barking and left tied up alone, parking on the grass, curfew times. The lighthouse "tour" was terrible. The gentleman stayed on the top and we were told to go up by ourselves. We've given lighthouse tours ourselves and know that this is a big safety concern. Once on top he rambled on about anything - very disorganized.
Check-in was very pleasant by the owners. We had a pull-through (in the rear) which had plenty of space from neighbor. There was nice firm grass to park on and no traffic noise. As stated, the road going back to the pull-throughs is shared by a run-down mobile home park. If you have a motorhome, your front window will be facing the park. It would have been nice if the park had been built to drive in from the opposite side. Then motorhomes could view the horses in the pasture. Regardless, we had a pleasant stay at this park. Also, they don't allow tent or car camping.
Our cost reflects the Good Sam discount. Stayed in a pull-through with our 40' motorhome and Jeep. The paved sites and patios have a reasonable amount of room between them, with grass. It is a well-kept park and should be. There are two pages of very strict rules; many pertaining to their lawns and others for tents, children and pets. There are many additional charges: dogs, extra persons, extra vehicle, tents with RVs. There are some long-term renters but they all keep their lots looking well. That's one of the rules, too.
The price reflects Passport America, W/E 30A hookup. We wanted a 50A with sewer but were told none were available for Passport America. When we arrived there were 50A available. Go figure!! For the Passport price this was o.k. but they wanted to charge $6 to dump. We didn't. Will dump at the next park. This park is 18 mi. west of Cody in a beautiful Shoshone River valley. The sites are well laid out and adequate. There is an indoor hot tub but on this cold rainy day, changing rooms would be welcomed. The outdoor pool wasn't open yet. The lodge/restaurant is pleasant looking. The laundry is small and one washer was broken.
We paid $8 (Golden Age Passport) for 50A electric site with no water or sewer hookups. We felt the sites were too close together compared to other Corps of Engineer parks we've stayed at. We're here for Memorial weekend and it's packed. Verizon air card works great for internet. We noticed a lot of unoccupied RVs already set up early, obviously by locals. Allowing this is poor management. The train noise is very loud and there are no walking trails, which we miss.
There aren't many campgrounds in the Kalamazoo area so this would be our first choice. It is well-kept and very convenient for the city. The sites are large with paved driveways and patios. Our Verizon air card works great. There are walking trails, tennis courts and a fish pond. The only drawback is lack of shade because the trees are small. We would definitely stay again.
We paid $12.50/night using Passport America. This is a good one-night stop, but we wouldn't want to be here longer, although some people are. Like others have stated, the highway noise is terrible but we have the air on, so inside we don't hear it much. We are in a pull-through next to the highway. The gravel sites are narrow but there is a 10' grass section alongside. Trees are small so there's no shade. Plus, new pine trees are planted right next to the parking area so when they get bigger they will scratch the RVs. The roads are gravel. The park seems to be kept up nicely and the small lake has clear water.
This is a very scenic park. There are 5 water crossings to the Mesquite Campground so don't try this if it's been raining a long time. The sites are dirt and gravel. Some sites may need leveling. There are hiking, biking, and horse trails. We thought the price was expensive - $25 plus $3.00 entry fee per day per person. There is no cell service in the canyon. There is a dump station.
We used our Passport American discount for 1/2 price so park was worth that. It has a nice pool, jacuzzis and clubhouse/laundry. What we didn't like was that there are only a few RV sites available. This park is going to Park Models so it has lost it's RV charm. The RV sites are intermixed withing the Park Model sites and not all will be available for use, depending on if the lot becomes another Park Model lot. It is out in the boonies but nice mountain surroundings. There is no Verizon cell service but the Wifi worked from our RV. We will not return.
This is a very nice Phoenix area regional park. It is large and scenic with many hiking trails. They prefer to assign sites rather than letting you choose one. With our 40' motorhome, not all sites are suitable and many are not level. We came on off-season, the end of April, so we were allowed to choose our own. The sites have a lot of space around them with lush desert vegetation. There is a dump station. We would stay again.
This is a dry camping experience! Roosevelt Lake is beautiful and this campground very pleasant. It is very busy on weekends and can be noisy. There are shade ramadas, fire rings, picnic tables, water hydrants, flush toilets, boat launch and open all year. The sites have vegetation between and they are fairly large. The roads are paved. There is a nice walking trail along the lake shore. Other than boating and fishing there are limited activities in the area. It's at 2200' elevation and will be very hot May through September. There is a dump station across the highway but was closed for repairs. It is near scenic Apache Trail gravel road and Tonto National Monument. It is 36 miles north of Globe and 60 miles north of Mesa. We would return to this campground.
This is a very run-down park. When we arrived there was a sign at the office to "call a #", which we did. The office person who answered was really put out that we would want to check in in the morning. He said people come in the afternoon. There are few sites for big rigs. Our site was uneven. There are untrimmed trees to maneuver through. The office and bathrooms were falling apart - literally. The buildings were old and unclean. We would not recommend this park.
The electric is 20/30A. The dump is at the end at a turnaround & if there are RVs nearby it would be very difficult to get to. There are no restrooms. You would need to walk down 4 flights of wooden stairs to the public day use park to use theirs. The sites are VERY close together. Our 40' motor home would not fit because it would have extended out into the drive area too much. A sign says "no curb parking" but that's what we had to do for the night. This is a blacktop parking lot good for 30' maximum RVs. I-15, Exit 258 onto US6. go 4 miles to Powerhouse Rd. and turn right. Go 1/2 miles past the golf course and picnic area drive. The entrance drive comes up fast so go slow. There's another entry/exit a short distance more but it has a steep incline and we could see the pavement has been gouged with RVs scrapping. It's next to a very noisy highway. It is an extremely windy area. There are even a bank of windmills to generate local power nearby. At the rear of some sites are small cleared out areas. We wouldn't recommend this for big rigs.
We stayed at the Doctor Creek Campground. Directions: from Hwy 62/24, turn east on paved Hwy 25 and go about 6 miles. The campground is on the right at 8852' elevation. This is a rustic campground set amidst aspen trees. There are flush toilets. Some sites were big enough for our 40' rig and car. It overlooks a large meadow and the equally large Fishlake is nearby. This campground closes on September 15. We would stay here again.
This is a nice campground but not big rig friendly due to the narrow road and vegetation at roadside, overhanging trees and close trees at sites. Careful planning is needed for the slideouts. We mentioned tree-trimming to the forest service and the host so hopefully some will be done. The area is beautiful. We will TRY to stay again in our 40' motor home and car. There are flush toilets, no showers, no hookups. There is a dump station.
Trailer Life Directory lists this campground name as "Buffalo Meadows RV Park". It also states it is 1.2 mile from Exit 80. It's actually much closer. It's located right behind the casino. It is very quiet with small trees and grass. It's far enough from the casino parking lot and I-15, Exit 80, that you won't hear any traffic. It is all paved with a nice restroom building. Our 50A was strong, as was Verizon phone. Our air card worked great for internet. There is Wi-Fi but we didn't try it. This park is wonderful for this area where there are few nice RV parks. The $20 cost is great. The casino has a nice meal selection (prime rib, etc. and a breakfast special). The ad mentions "tee-pees" but we didn't see any. The only downside were a few local folks coming into the restroom to take their showers. Otherwise, this is a great park for a night or two. We would definitely stop again.
The only thing going for this park is the grass and trees. It is a poorly maintained park and we will now let Passport America know of this. Obviously, the owners wrote up their own description for the PA book. It is all untrue. The gravel interior road is narrow with trees and bushes alongside. Our 40' motorhome got its side scraped. We would definitely recommend large rigs to head for the farthermost area to park, not the first one because you'd never get out of it. Electric was advertised as 50A but we only had 30A. The laundry had one washer/dryer in a tiny, extremely room. The restroom was locked. The gathering "patio" as is mentioned had chair & tables but they were layered in dirt. The basketball court is next to a junk pile & had a huge discarded storage unit next to it that was ready to topple over on a child as soon as a ball hit it - very dangerous. The volleyball court had rusty poles leaning over. There are many outbuildings/sheds on the property along with cabins and houses amidst piles of junk and old machinery. The office was closed when we arrived so we just parked. A gal came up and said she couldn't find the key and they would catch us later. Later never came but because we're honest folks, we left the advertised $17 Passport America cost in an envelope and taped it to the door. We didn't include extra for the air conditioning which is a rip-off. The sites are very narrow and luckily the park wasn't a bit busy (we wonder why?) so that we had some elbow room at the site and also maneuvering into the park. The pull-throughs had no shade but there were a few scattered sites under trees. This park could be wonderful if the road was widened a little and the grounds cleaned up. We noticed a for sale sign so perhaps there's hope. We would not recommend this park but if you decide to go the directions are, from Rexburg and Hwy 20, go south of town 4 miles then a left just beyond MP329 and go across the highway then turn right. Continue straight across the bridge to the campground. Our Verizon Aircard worked for the internet.
There are 33 sites here with electric: 20/30A. Our Verizon Air Card didn't work here. This national forest campground is very pleasant along the Madison River. Beware of various fishing regulations within the campground. For some portions you will need a Yellowstone N.P. fishing license and the other areas outside the park you will need a Montana license. Our 40' motorhome would fit in many sites but some sites need tree trimming and especially the curve at the Exit. We scraped the pine trees along the side of our motorhome: not pretty. There are vault toilets and water spigots. There is no dump station. A few of the sites are on the river. The electric sites will have a lot of road noise. This park is very popular and there are no reservations so get there early in the day, if possible. It opens May 1 through Oct 1 at the 6600' elevation. This campground is on U.S. 191 about 3 miles north of West Yellowstone, just past the airport.
This is a very well-kept park. Each site has a patch of grass that is kept watered. There are picnic tables. The campground road is gravel as are the sites. The views of the surrounding mountains are very nice. Ennis is in a valley. The owners are very pleasant and helpful. Big rigs have lots of room here. Each site has two sewer connections: one in the rear and one midway, a thoughtful construction point. There is a nice laundry and clubhouse and the bathrooms are spotless. We enjoyed our stay here and would definitely return.
Pull-throughs w/F/H/U are $32; Back-ins w/F/H/U are $29; $30 for shorter rigs on a tent site is $25; Tent sites $19. Use of the dump station is $6.
Monthly (full-hookups) $500; Over 2 people: addt'l persons $2 (under 12 free). Also 7th night is Free and Good Sam Club is honored on daily rates. Our Verizon aircard worked great. We didn't use the Wi-Fi.
This campground is situated in a beautiful open area with views of mountains. The sites have a lot of room between your neighbor. Our 40' motorhome and car fit easily. There are no hookups but there is a water spigot and dump station. The bathrooms were older but kept clean. There is a playground and hiking trails. The cave tour cost $10 for seniors and was well worth it. Be advised that at the beginning of the tour you will need to walk a steep hill to the cave entrance. It was hot today and people had problems. Inside there will be many down steps which are narrow. There is also one small area of 4' that you will need to sit down and scoot to get through. Older folks, like us, seemed to do the negotiating well. We enjoyed our stay here and would return. It's not far from either Bozeman or Butte and is just off I-90. Our rate reflects that we are Montana residents.
We unhooked the car from the motorhome along the highway at a nearby rest area and drove the 1.5 mile paved road to the campground to see if sites were available for us. There were a few that our 40' motorhome would have fit but they were taken by smaller rigs. (We wish folks wouldn't do that. There were beautiful lakefront sites that were smaller for them.) The campground road is narrow and the turnaround at the end is tight so we really wouldn't recommend this campground for RVs over 34-36'. There are untrimmed trees at sites which could be iffy for some slide outs. The lake itself is a beautiful bright blue color. There is a small boat ramp and pit toilets. There isn't a dump station, no showers, no water fill. It is 55 miles south of the junction of the Alaskan Highway and the Cassiar Highway and is north of Jade City.
This is a great stop while traveling the Cassiar Highway. It's in a pretty mountain setting on a beautiful lake. There are many nice lakefront sites. The sites are on the narrow side but our 40' motorhome with slides and car fit nicely. There is good privacy between sites. There are clean vault toilets, no showers, trash bin, water pump (a sign recommends you boil it first) and no dump station. There is a large turnaround at the end of the campsite road so big rigs can drive in easily without unhooking their towed vehicle. We would definitely stay again. This is at Km365 of the Cassiar Highway just south of Iskut and north of Meziadin Junction.
This is a huge national park campground one mile south of Jasper. We didn't have reservations mid-August and had no problem getting an unserviced site mid-day. The sites with hookups were full and reserved months in advance we were told. There are a variety of sites and prices. This unserviced site at $28 was expensive, we thought. In addition, we needed a park entry pass which is $8.30 for each of us for a senior per day. To use the dump station is also $8.80. We didn't have a fire but campfire permits were $8.80 per day. For 3 nights on an unserviced site cost us $132.00!! We had planned to spend 1-2 weeks in various campgrounds along the Icefields Parkway but it was much too expensive to do so. Other site prices were: $22.50 for a walk-in tent site; $32.30 for electric; $38.20 for full hookup. There are coin showers and flush toilets. We will not return to this park system because of the high costs.
While here, we checked out all the RV parks in the Stewart/Hyder area and we felt this was the best RV park. It's in a very pleasant treed setting with grass (something you don't see often in this part of the country). The sites are large and a 40' motorhome and car fit easily. Parking is on gravel. The area is very quiet. The owner personally walked us around to show us four sites and let us decide which one we'd like. He was very personable and helpful. The sites have full hookups with 30amp electricity only. There is cable TV and a picnic table. Tents or soft-sided trailers are not allowed because of possible bear activity. We saw no bears in this campground during our 3 days here. The showers are coin-operated. There is a public telephone and free Wi-fi, which was very slow. Our Verizon aircard didn't work here. The park is for sale so we hope the new owners will keep it up as it is now. This park will be on the left just before entering Stewart. We would highly recommend it.
This park is 8 miles east of Smithers, B.C. It is on Hwy 16 just east of the small town of Telkwa. There are individual full bathrooms, a sauna, laundry and pay phone in one building. All are immaculate but there is no soap at the sink which would have been appreciated. There is 30amp electricity only and the Wi-Fi was $3/day. We used our Verizon aircard. There is a free RV wash but bring your boots as it gets very slippery and muddy. Adding gravel here would help a lot. The sites are in a long row, on gravel with a very dusty road. The sites are on a bluff overlooking the beautiful Buckley River. There is a short trail down to the river. Our 40' motorhome and car fit fine. The owners are very pleasant. There is a lot of big machinery setting around which detracts from the river views. It's a good overnight stop.
This park is 40 miles east of Prince George on Hwy 16. It is 2 miles off the main highway so it's quiet from highway noise. This is a water-activity park on a beautiful large lake. There is a boat launch, swim beach, large day use area, some hiking. The campground is comprised of two loops. Most sites were suitable for our 40' motorhome and car. The roads are paved and sites are gravel with tables and firepits. There is a dump station. What was really wierd was walking through a heavily forested area to the typical-looking "out houses". When you opened the door, the toilets are flush!!
There are very few usable spaces for a 40' motorhome here. The sites may measure 40' but if they are pull-throughs there are very tight bends and also many tree obstacles: not only with the sites but driving through the loops. Big Rigs: do not go into Loop D. The road at a turn has trees at both sides of the bend in the road. We missed tearing off our awning by inches! Motorhomes do not bend to make turns! The restrooms in Loop D were very dirty. A noisy trash truck comes through the loops every morning. They have many dumpsters so they were't even full enough to be emptied. We have been here many times over the years, but will not return to this campground. We prefer not to use public campgrounds when visiting national parks. The sites are decently spaced from each other with open vegetations so your neighbor will be visible. There are water spigots and flush toilets in unkept restrooms. The dump station is not easy to use for a 40' motorhome either: another tight bend with trees. There is a lot of road noise and motorcycle noise in this campground. Opening date is mid-May. Closing is mid-October. There are no reservations.
This park was not good for our 40' motorhome and car but we found a double site and fit in for one night. We parked as far over to one site as possible with our slides. However, the manager came over about 7pm and asked us to move further over. There were plenty of empty sites available at this time of night & we couldn't believe he was worried about someone wanting to park so close next to us. If they did, they would have had enough room to pull in next to us. We told him this and said we wouldn't break everything down to move over a foot. So he charged us double. The sites are uneven with many trees to maneuver between. The campground roads were very dusty with people speeding through. It's a typical government campground with no facilities except for a reasonably clean vault toilet. There is a water faucet but no dump. This campground is reached by way of the side paved road which comes at a junction just north of Fort Steele at Hwy 93, 18 NE of Cranbrook. This side road reconnects at Hwy 93 approximately 20 miles south. From the north intersection go approximately 10 miles south on the side road. The campground is on the west side of the road. Across the road is Peckham's Lake and a day use area for swimming or boating, but power boats aren't allowed. There is a short trail from the campground to Norbury Lake but folks didn't seem to use this lake.
This park is good for big rigs. We finally got parked after our third site try. The first one had an area sunken at the rear of the site. The second one had scrubby fruit trees on both sides and would have scraped our side. The sites are a decent distance from your neighbor. Not all sites have 50amps. Our Verizon aircard worked great, didn't try the Wi-Fi. The restrooms were immaculate. They have a lot of rules but don't seem to enforce them. Some dog owners don't think the leash rule applies to them. Same goes for driving fast on the dusty roads. Kids are supposed to be supervised and again, for some folks this doesn't apply. We used the hot springs pools next door for $4.50 senior rate plus $1 to use it all day in and out. This was a nice perk. We would use this park as a travel stopover but not a long-term destination.
Big rigs can fit into many sites. There are only 4 pull-through sites and are not for big RVs. There are "semi" flush toilets: a glorified vault toilet, but were not kept clean. There is a 3-day minimum stay with no driving your vehicle after you're parked at the campsite. Towed vehicles are not allowed but can be left in the park's long-term parking lot. Dogs are allowed but definitely cannot be left unattended or you'll be asked to leave, so keep in mind if you plan to take the shuttle bus for critter-seeing. There are water spigots but no dump station or water fill. The dump is at Riley campground at the park's entrance. Come fully prepared as you will be at the remote Mile 29 with no facilities. The campground is open approximately mid-May to mid-Sept., weather dependent. The convenience of hopping on the shuttle bus whenever you want to explore the inner park is an added perk. You do need to purchase one daily bus ticket but then additional days of riding is free. We would definitely stay here again.
This place is located at Mile 79 on the Seward Highway, then 4 miles on Portage Valley Highway. It's a very nice national forest campground with paved roads and sites. Our 40' motorhome fit easily. Reservations can be made for some, but not all of the sites. There are both back-in and pull-through sites which are spacious and well-separated with vegetation. There is a hand water pump, firewood and a park host; however no dump station and the vault toilets are just adequate.
Be sure to check out the Visitor Center and watch the film: great ending! There are miles of numerous great, flat trails from the Visitor Center including trails to Portage and Bryon Glaciers. Boat tours of the glaciers are available as are late summer Salmon viewing in nearby Williwaw Creek.
This is a beautiful campground on the shores of Kenai Lake and Quartz Creek. There is a boat launch, flush toilets, dump station with water fill, firewood and a host. It was great for our 40' motorhome and car. Half of the sites are reservable. Come early in the day during the week for a non-reserved site. It is full on the weekends. It is near Mile 45 of the Sterling Highway. Turn onto Quartz Creek Rd. next to Sunrise Inn. Go 1/2 mile on paved road, on the right.
There are three different camping areas on the Spit. The first you come to is Mariner Park on the right at the base of the Spit. The second is across from the Fishing Hole about 3 miles from the base on the right. The third is on the left just past the Fishing Hole. There are portal potties and flush toilets at the Fishing Hole area. There are no showers or dump station, although there is one in town across the highway from the post office. There are some picnic table and homemade fire rings on the beach. Parking is on gravel. If you can do without hookups and don't wish to pay high fees, this is a nice way to go. The views are splendid. You will see everything from tents to high-end motorhomes here. There is a 14-day limit.
There are scattered, specific areas for city camping and not all areas have the same type of camping. Not all have electric. It's best to get specific information online. There are no reservations. The sites are close together on gravel but the views of Resurrection Bay are a #10. Many sites are 20 yards from the Bay. Site type varies from tenting for $10, dry camping for $15, or Electric and water sites for $30. There is a central dump station with water fill. There are multiple water spigots throughout; there are flush and vault toilets. Showers are available at a couple of places.
This park is only 12 miles north of Anchorage and 1 mile south of the town of Eagle River. Reservations for 1/2 of the sites can be made. There are paved roads and sites, fire pits, tables. The dump fee is $5 extra, even if you're camping. This includes the water fill. All sites are back-ins. It is open May through September. The stay limit is 4 nights. There is whitewater rafting on the Eagle River running through the park. There are short hiking trails and a campground host. This is a very clean and well-kept park. The sites are generous size with vegetation for privacy. Our 40' motorhome fit easily. From Glenn Hwy., take Hiland Rd. Exit Mile 12. Follow signs onto frontage road along the east side of the highway for 1.4 miles to the campground.
This campground is at the entrance to the park. Sites are very limited for big rigs. Our 40' motorhome and car would fit into about 15 sites which are all in the "Bear" loop. The sites are well separated with vegetation and this was a great place for a base camp to do the many entrance area hikes and ranger programs. We kept busy for 4 days and then moved to Mile 29, Teklanika campground for 5 days. There are flush and vault toilets and coin showers and laundry are available next door at the Mercantile. There are no hookups but there is a dump station with water fill. The campground is ope all year but limited facilities Sept-May. Sites are $14 for tents, $22 for RVs up to 30' and $28 for RVs up to 40'.
This campground has a convenient location in the middle of town. There are ten electrical hookups (one has 50-amp) with water. There are flush toilets but no showers. It is on the Chena River. It has a boat ramp and dump station.The sites are spacious with nice vegetation between. Our 40' motorhome and car fit easily. There is a park host on site. It is on 221 University Ave., one block north of Airport Way.
This state campground appears to be very neglected. There were no fee envelopes available so it's free. The vault toilets were filthy and garbage was piled next to the overflowing dumpster. We chose Site #23 for our 40' motorhome, pulled in forward, and had a magnificent view of the small lake with a background of mountains. There was only one other traveler here. It was o.k. for a night but definitely not a destination. It is at MM80 of the Richardson Highway near Copper Center toward Valdez.
This is a typical public campground with spacious sites. There are some pull-throughs and some on the stream. There are picnic tables, fire pits, free firewood, a kitchen shelter and a hand water pump. It is near 1791km of the Alaska Highway. It is an easy off for an overnight stay.
This would be a good campground for an overnight used by small or medium RVs. It is not a campground for 38-40' rigs. The pull-through sites have too much of bend to them. There were upended chucks of RR ties for boundary markers at the sites.The roads are narrow with many trees. The sites have trees at the edge of the parking area so it would be very difficult to open slideouts. It is at MP109 of the Glenn Hwy, 16 miles from Tok. There are vault toilets, water pump and the sites are well-separated. They are laid out in 5 wheel-like groups.
This is a typical public campground with no hookups and very clean vault toilets. It is 30 miles from Glennallen toward Paxson at MP148 of the Richardson Hwy. The sites are very nice and spacious surrounded by black spruce and low willow. The pull-throughs are great for 40' rigs. Some backins would be doable, also. The sites are wide so no problem with slideouts. There is a table and fire pits at each site. There is a great host who has been there 10 years. One drawback was no admonishment for barking dogs and dogs left alone outside. There is good fishing for sockeye, king salmon, rainbow and grayling on the Gulkana River, especially if you have a boat. There is a nice, short well maintained river-side trail with excellent interpretative signs. There is a boat launch and parking for trailers. This is a very well-designed and attractive public campground. We wish all were like this.
This is a nice public campground but was deserted today, June 20. It is just 3 miles outside the tiny town of Glennallen at Mile 118 of the Richardson Highway. The sites are well-separated. There is a section toward the rear with 8 very wide and long pull-throughs which would be great for 40' rigs. The rest are back-ins and some are deep but most are for 30-32' rigs. There are also some walk-in tent sites. There are picnic tables, fire pits and vault toilets.
This park is way overpriced. The sites are laid out haphazardly and maneuvering is very tight. The roads are narrow and trees are at edge of parking pad which makes for very creative parking to open the slideouts. They want an extra $10 for a pull-through site because they have more creek frontage! C'mon: we're not buying a lot! The narrow road in is about 3/4 mile of gravel off Glenn Hwy Mile 173, about 15 miles west of Glennallen toward Palmer, so the park is quiet. Today: there was only one camper here. No sewer hookups but they have a dump station. Coin showers. This park definitely would not be good for 38-40' rigs.
We didn't stay here but drove through to see if our 40' motorhome would fit. This is not a campground for big rigs. RVs up to 34' would be fine. It's a pleasant-looking park. The campground is not on the water but a short walk. There is a boat ramp and rocky beach to walk. There is a host in an information cabin. The vault toilets were clean. There is a water pump. There is no dump. If you had a kayak or boat this would be a very nice place to use it. It is 7 miles from Haines via a paved road until the last mile. It is then a wide gravel road. The last 1/2 mile is downhill on a 14% grade. It didn't seem that steep to us and it's only for a short time. From town, take Mud Bay Rd. and watch for signs. WE DID NOT STAY.
We drove through this park. If our 40' motorhome would have fit we would have stayed. It's in a beautiful setting on a lovely lake and river. The road is paved to it. The sites have good privacy but we wouldn't recommend larger than a 32' - 34' max RV try to fit here. The vault toilets were very clean. It is about 7 miles from town. From the harbor in town take Lutak Road toward the ferry landing and drive about 7 miles. There is a host on site, picnic tables, fire pits, water pump and a boat ramp. WE DID NOT STAY.
The sites are very close together but the view is dynamite! You will be right at the water's edge and can watch the ferry/cruise ships/bald eagles, etc. Our 40' motorhome fit but if the park is full we'd practically touch our neighbor's rig. There is a clean toilet room and shower room (one stall each) and a clean small laundry area.
We couldn't use this because the sites were not big enough for our 40' motorhome. We drove through. There are only approximately seven sites with hookups for RVs about 30-34'. The rest of the sites are for tents or small truck campers, etc. There were beer bottles at a few of the empty sites so either they don't clean up well or it's a nightly party park. The out buildings looked run down. It is right in town and extremely dark and wooded. Even if we would have fit, we wouldn't have stayed here. WE DID NOT STAY.
This is a typical government campground. It was spacious back-in sites with privacy. Our 40' motorhome fit fine. The vault toilets were clean. No water when we were there. No dump. Wood was $8!! The site was $15.70 Canadian. We don't know how they arrived at that amount. None of the sites are on the gorgeous huge lake. The day use is a good walk or drive. This is about 15 miles from Haines Junction on the Haines Highway.
This is approximately 55 miles north of Dawson Creek: just beyond Fort St. John. It is on the east side of the Alaska Highway. There is a dump station and vault toilets. The sites are very deep with nice spacing and vegetation between the sites. Our 40' coach fit fine. The campground is up a short hill from the lake and the lake cannot be seen. There is a boat ramp.
The park had very friendly managers and clean facilities. There are only a few sites for 40' motorhomes up by the office. The park is tucked inbetween two highways. The front sites have less noise and the rear sites are very pleasant for small RVs or tents but it has highway noise from busy Hwy 1. At $40 Canadian, this is an very expensive park.
This is located a few miles north of town on the east side of the highway. Hardly anyone was here on June 1. The large lake is accessed across Hwy 97 as is the day use area. There is a dump station in the campground. The bottom two rows on this hillside park have lake views. There are flush toilets. This is a convenient stop while traveling through.
This is 77 miles (125km) north of Prince George. It is south of Mackenzie on the west side of Hwy 97. There are only two narrow pullout sites on the side of the road. The rest are backins. Our 40' motorhome fit just fine. It is on McLeod lake which is very large. There is a boat ramp and swim beach. There is a pleasant short trail.
Our 40' motorhome fit just fine. It is on the Alaska Highway at Stone Mountain Provincial Park at elevation 4250'. If the weather is good this is worth a stop just for the solitude and beauty. There is hiking and a boat launch, pump water and clean vault toilets.
Reservations might be required in July & August. There are two hot springs natural pools accessed via a 10-minute very pleasant walk on a boardwalk. Moose can be seen!. Our 40' motorhome fit just fine. The toilets are vault but clean. There are hand pumps for water. No dump. The $19 includes use of the hot pools. There is an overflow area across the highway that is the same price as the campground but there is an additional fee to use the pools of $5/person. Arrive early in the day for a non-reserved site. This is the ultimate experience. Wonderful!
This city campground is run by the local Tribal. It is a very good alternative to the private campground across the street. This one has deep, wide, private sites. Our 40' motorhome & Jeep fit fine. Location: Just south of the intersection of Tagish Hwy 8 and Klondike Hwy 2 on the east side of Klondike Highway. There is a blue campground symbol sign at the gravel lane next to the Airport entrance. Go east 1/8 mile to the campground. Vault toilets. No water when we were here. No Dump. No electric. There are picnic tables and fire pits. If you can do without hookups for a night or two, this is for you. We did our Skagway touring from here which is a gorgeous one-hour + drive.
This has the most appeal in Whitehorse. It has trees and the sites are a good size. The buildings/restrooms/laundry are immaculate. Wi-Fi is available but is sometimes slow and spotty depending where you are parked. You might have to take your computer into the office. There are also modem hookups and a computer to use for a fee. The big downside to this park is the dust. We were parked by the office where everyone leaves and comes in. A "SLOW DOWN" sign or two might help.
We had a shady pull-through site. Some sites are in full sun and it was hot today. They are not as pleasant as the shady ones, although some are in deep shade and some partial. There is a laundry. The staff were friendly and the park was quiet. The roads were gravel and very dusty.
There were very few here at this time (after the Memorial Day weekend) which made it nice and quiet. The sites are gravel, roads paved. The sites are a good size for our 40' motorhome. Most are wide enough to park the towed vehicle next to the RV but ours was a narrow site #114, & we had to park on an angle. We were told we were getting a "lake view" site. The view is of lily pads. The lake is far off and can't even be seen. There are no restrooms open because a combination is needed and we didn't receive it. There is no clubhouse and no trails so nothing to do in the park itself. It's a convenient park to tour Mount St. Helen.
This is a good park for big rigs. Our 40' motorhome could fit in almost all sites. Some of the back in sites were in deep shade. Most of the pull-throughs were in sun or partial. If you don't utilize the lake by having a boat or fishing, there isn't anything to do here. There are no trails.
There is a tent area which is wooded - no hookups but a dump station, and an "RV Park" which has small trees. The views are gorgeous! We were here during the week late spring so didn't experience boat noise. This is a great stop-over park along I-5. We would definitely return.
This campground is not for big rigs - 30' maximum. There are flush toilets and water spigots. It is next to a busy highway and many logging trucks and other semis pass the road. There is a dump station a couple miles away at the national forest visitor center. The only plus is the pleasant-looking Hat Creek which runs through the park.
There is only one pull-through. The sites are mainly medium size, although our 40' motorhome fit in one and would have fit in three. It is very quiet at night. There is a nice 4-mile trail and some slot canyons (they call them caves) to explore. A nice stop-over but not a destination park.
We paid $390/month plus electric. Cable is $28.42/month extra. Wi-Fi is in Clubhouse only. There are many park models in the park and many permanent area workers living here. There are 4 pages of rules given out but it seems they don't apply to the permanents. The RV sites are wide enough but no privacy. They are all in a row with shade trees. There is highway noise. The pool doesn't open until around Memorial Day. Unfortunately, Prescott doesn't have a good RV park so a different choice is not available.
There are two campgrounds next to each other. The one with hookups is called Rio Grande Village RV Park and is run by a concessionier. It seems that people are submitting their reviews under the incorrect name. This review is for the Rio Grande Village Campground. We have a 40' motorhome with solar panels and prefer "rustic" camping. We spent 10 days here. This is a wonderful place. It's very scenic and the sites are well spaced. We used our Golden Age Passport for the reduced rate. The RV Park is a parking lot and not for us. We have stayed here four times and plan to do so again.
This park is O.K. for overnight only. There are only a few spaces that are not occupied by area workers. The restroom building was padlocked with a sign along with a telephone number stating "call the number for a key". What an inconvenience this is! The park is next to a busy railroad track.
We paid half price with Passport America membership - with restrictions. The sites are close together. The entrance is poor for big rigs. If you tow a car it would be best to disconnect before entering the park. Our 50A electric was very poor, the sewer connection needs a very long hose. There is a laundry & WiFi in rec room, planned activities, small pool and spa. We would not stay again.
We paid $13.50 using Passport America membership - with restrictions. This park is 23 miles from South Padre Island. The sites are generous. There are planned activities, a laundry, showers, mail service, spa, shuffleboard library and horseshoes.
The full hook-up area has more room for big rigs than the water/electric area. The water/electric sites are pull-throughs but the parking area is tight but doable. There is a rec hall with a cafe, laundry, showers, dump station, and boat ramp for Falcon Reservoir use. This is a nice birding area and guided tours are sometimes offered. There is a three-mile nature trail and a birding blind. There is also a primitive campground area with water available and bathrooms.
We have stayed here many times. It is an Escapee membership park. The rate is $12 plus electric for members and $18 plus electric for non-members. We paid $5 plus tax for boon docking only. The check-in folks were very pleasant and helped us to find a repair facility. There is a nice clubhouse & kitchen and low cost meals are offered occasionally. This is a nice, friendly stop over along I-10. We will stop again.
We paid $14 per night plus $3 each for entry fees bringing a total of $20. The sites are generous with some big rig sites. Cell phone service is not available. The pay telephone was taken out. The restrooms were very clean. We would return to this park.
We paid $12.50 with Passport America, otherwise it's $25.00. Yes, there are mountain views. That is why we gave it at least a rating of 2. This park has a For Sale sign in front. No one was in the office from 2pm through the next morning. The ad states rallies welcome with a large rec room. The rec room was filled with junk. It looked like a few garages were cleaned out & put in there. We could see it though a opening in the wall when using the bathrooms. The rec room was not accessible. The ladies room had a toilet broken, no toilet paper, no paper towels, the waste can was spilling out onto the floor, and was filthy. The shower rooms were dirty but at least had toilet paper. Above all, we had a 30A site and couldn't use anything but lights. The voltage was very low. We had to use our inverter to use the microwave. People pulling in were scurrying around trying to find 50Amp sites or at least usable 30Amp. Some sites had an "X" on the electric post but other that didn't had poor power. We don't know if the WiFi worked. We didn't try. One night was more than enough. This park could be a very pleasant place if it were kept up. Even though it's along the frontage road of I-10, the openness of the surroundings made the noise tolerable. We will not return to this park and we will let Passport America know of its condition.
This is a very noisy campground next to the highway. We have a 40' motorhome & there are about 12 sites we could fit into although the pull-throughs, while long enough, have such a tight mid-curve with narrow paving & tree branches, that they would require just backing into one end of them. The campground manager (concessioner) had a very happy dog. I had to finally go over and ask her to keep it quiet. She didn't appreciate it. We think that most campgrounds have that rule and for the manager to not oblige is unfortunate. Because of the noise we would only stay one night which driving through the area in the future.
The parking spaces are on very loose gravel, side by side. There is a picnic table. WiFi was weak. The restrooms/showers/activities were driving distance away. The RV sites are surrounded by park model trailers so not good views. This being October, there were no activities and the pool & spa were closed. We probably won't stay again because of no restrooms in the RV area.
We only stayed here because Santa Fe RV parks jack up their prices for the Albuquerque Balloon Festival. One park quoted us $290/week! We see no reason for this and probably won't return to Santa Fe because of this. This park in ugly. It's just a gravel parking lot. It has no restrooms. It is next to the highway and very noisy. The park is across the highway from the casino. It is about 1/4 mi. south of the overpass of Hwy 502. It is next to the Phillips 66 station. We got a $22.50 rate for Good Sam. This park is 13 miles north of Santa Fe.
We were here in Sept & rates are lower. July-August rates are $30. They have weekly & monthly rates. All sites level & widely-spaced. It's on the Rio Grande River. It has a stocked trout pond with paddle boat to use. LP gas is available. Everything was immaculate and everyone friendly. This is actually the RV Park. The RV Resort, which is next to it, is for those who have bought into the leased lots. Everyone uses the same facilities. Gorgeous views from every site. The WiFi worked well. Verizon cell got a poor signal and we were told we need to drive into South Fork (26 miles) in a good digital area, and do *228 to update the signal. We would definitely stay here again.
Not all sites have sewer or 50 amp. There is not much shade. The WIFI worked great from our site. There is good space between sites. There are only 2 washers & dryers. The showers & bathrooms are older with spider webs. We got a SKP discount. The water & electric only sites are $25; with sewer is $28. The highway is very noisy & busy and there is a helicopter landing across the highway & every 10 minutes a helicopter flies overhead. Very noisy place.
We had a river pull-in forward site for our motorhome which gave us a great view. Wi-Fi is only in the office. The sites are gravel, some shaded, a few sun. The park accepts Good Sam but we thought it was expensive. The small clubhouse wasn't open. There is a small store in the office. Owners are friendly. There is constant highway noise. It's a pretty setting on the Methow River where there is trout fishing. (We caught some!) Mosquitos around 5pm.
Many campsites this July were still unusable from heavy May rains. The sites are grassy except for about 10 gravel pull-thrus, which are best for big rigs. The wading pool was not in use. There is a nice playground and large playing field. The hosts were pleasant. It is a pretty setting in a very rural area. You can walk to the small town from the campground. There are many scenic roads to explore.
This campground is heavily wooded and it rains a lot here! It is a gorgeous area though. The campground is on Diabo Lake. It is a typical old national park campground and there are very few sites for large RVs. Cell phone service is not available and there are no nearby stores. There are no roads to explore other than the main highway but there are many trails.
This is advertised as being for big rigs and we even called to confirm. It is not. There is a narrow one-lane road to get to the campground. There are only a couple sites that a big rig could fit because of narrow roads and trees. There was no host and therefore dogs were running loose, cars speeding and people were being loud. There are pit toilets and no showers. There were also day use people taking up the camp sites. We did not see a dump station. 509-738-6366
This is a brand new hidden gem! It is 15 miles west of Boise just off I-84, Exit 29. Go east, past the Flying J for 1/4 mile and it's on your left. Telephone: 888-877-8307. It is a Good Sam park. Weekly is $160 with electric; monthly $310+electric. Prices for two. Additional people $2 extra. Daily & Weekly includes FREE WiFi. Monthly WiFi is $19.95. Allows RV washing - free. The sites are the largest in the Boise area. We checked them all out. Paved, wide roads, large concrete patio and lush grass area. Many newly-planted small trees. The pull through rows are laid out so you can have afternoon patio shade. This is definitely a "Big Rig" park (and for smaller ones, too!). Heated pool, spa, kiddie pool, exercise room, pool table, comfy rec room, free muffins & coffee in the morning, planned activities, library, very reasonable laundry, individual full private bathrooms. Everything is immaculate and the workers are very friendly. We hope this wonderful park won't be taken over with area workers, although the managers have strict rules as to keeping the park neat-looking. There is one Park Model and we hope the last. We will definitely return.
Very Expensive! $24-$36/d (no hook-ups, water/electric only, full hook-up standard & premium); $231/wk. Accepts Escapees, FMCA, Good Sam & Passport America (2 nights only)discounts. The photos on the internet site are deceiving. The space and views aren't obtained for all the sites, especially if the park is filled. There is road noise. The staff is friendly. There is lots of grass and trees & they water a lot so be careful of chairs, etc. outside. The tiny pool opens mid-June. There is a playground. The pay telephone was turned off. Only 22 mi. to Jackson, WY via a 10% grade. There are rental cabins $42 & tent sites ($22). There are permanent occupants in pproximately 15 sites including a few park models. They are still perfecting the sporatic WiFi.
Some discounts are available such as Good Sam, FMCA, AAA, AARP, Escapees. Basic Daily $29.95 +tax; Weekly $175; Monthly $400+electric.Nice indoor pool but not much ventilation so the air is hot. Friendly staff. Expensive Wifi: $2.50/d; $12/week; $21/month. Some planned activities. Vehicle washing: $5 for RV; $3 for car. Nice laundry. The web site states "only modern RVs". There are old ones in the park. Also, "RV site to be kept uncluttered & nothing stored under the RV". This doesn't seem to be monitored. There is a separate area for long-term with some area workers living here. Propane is sold for $2/gal. Overall, a nice clean, modern park. A concrete "patio/walkway" and 3' grass strip between sites. Tiny trees so no shade.
We had a gorgeous site for our 40' motorhome. Not all the sites are spacious. The park is very well kept. There is a laundry, well-stocked store and Shell fuel. There are nice views from all sites. The owners and workers were very friendly. We would stay here again.
This park's advertisement in Trailer Life states "quiet country setting on 14 acres". This is false. It is in the midst of a heavy industrial park with absolutely no views. It was very noisy. The sites are fairly close together with no privacy. About 80% of the occupants are permanents who work in the area. The best thing going for the park are the clean bathrooms. We would not stay here again. We have a 40' motorhome.
Although our 40' motorhome fit the pull-through site fine, there are some back-in grassy sites that are uneven. The sites are fairly close together with no privacy. The owners are very friendly and there is no highway noise.
Vehicle washing is allowed. The sites are large and grassy making it nice for our 40' motorhome. The pool was not in service due to repairs needed. I would recommend you call first if this is a necessity of yours. This is a Good Sam Park giving -10% and is in the Escapees Directory giving -15%. It is not in my current Passport America book. We would stay here again.
Generous, wide and long sites. Great for big rigs. Owners are very friendly and helpful. They plant beautiful flower gardens with unique decorative accents. Bathrooms and all facilities are immaculate. Only drawbacks are that some sewer connections require a long hose and there is some highway noise - not bad and not interstate. However, all the parks in Missoula have highway noise.
