Buffalo Bill State Park, Cody, Wyoming

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $26.00
Overall Rating:

Campsites on the lake at North Shore Bay are a 10 for the views (this assumes you know that only one loop has electric and water and the other 1st come 1st serve loops have no hook-ups). If you don't have a campsite with a great view, the campground is an 8 or 9 overall.
Pros: Large sites. Convenient to Cody and on the way to Yellowstone. Very clean vault toilets. Great views.
Cons: The road to Yellowstone creates road noise (not awful). No shower facility. A bit windy in the afternoon and early evenings as storms come off Yellowstone. If you are on the inside of the loop your door will face out to the loop road (loops are pretty short so there is not to much traffic.
$26.00 reflects: water, electric, state park fee, online fee, out of state. We camped at Buffalo Bill State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Custer State Park - Game Lodge Campground, Custer, South Dakota

Date of Stay: September, 2015 - $24.00
Overall Rating:

Great campsite sitting along a creek in Custer State Park. Very accommodating for all camper types with tent camping, non-electric sites, electric, and cabins available. The sites are generally large with the sites closer to the creek providing more shade. The proximity of the campground to the lodge and the museum in the park make it a convenient location. A bike path connects the different amenities. Reservations can be placed up to one year in advance. Any campground is a compromise, but game lodge is my first 10 rating. We camped at Custer State Park - Game Lodge Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Hume Lake Campground, Hume, California

Date of Stay: July, 2015 - $24.00
Overall Rating:

Hume Lake campground is a nice place for a weekend get away or a place to visit Sequoia and Kings Canyon. This campground has no hook-ups was primarily used by Californians, with some larger groups. The campground has no dumpsite or water fill-up. The campground's location close to the lake provided great hiking and cold swimming. The fishing was a bit more challenging since the state of California is stocking smaller fish. The sites are well spaced out, but the gravel pads and the wooden post make some spots small and a challenge for backing in. Additionally, some pads are not that level, but most are well shaded. The restrooms can be a bit of a hike if you are parked at the far end of the loop. The sites also have bear boxes but no major bear activity had been reported. The elevation helped keep the temperatures nice and cool. The Christian Camp at the end of the lake has a well stocked general store that is open to all. They also have gas (at an up charge) in case of emergency. The campground only provided firewood at a cost. We camped at Hume Lake Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Saddle Mountain Ranch Campground, Carmel, California

Date of Stay: July, 2015 - $72.00
Overall Rating:

This is a nice small campground close to Carmel and Monterey with full hook-ups. To address some of the other reviews issues: The campground is tight and steep to access and stay in, but this should not be a surprise if you have researched Saddle Mountain prior to your arrival. We camped in a 30ft TT and had to move our tow vehicle to parking after we were in (not a major issue since parking was only 50ft away). The management did move campers around when they could not fit in a site. The bridge has been rebuilt to two lanes and is no longer an issue (the road is still tight as you get close to the campground). The management has also changed in the last few years and comments from 2010 or older are not relevant. The campground was very clean and the gardener / handyman kept a very neat and clean campground. The sites are very close, but everyone seemed to respect other campers and kept the noise to a minimum. The pool area was clean and provided excellent views. The bathrooms are small and you may need to adjust your schedule to use the facilities. Overall we were pleasantly surprised with how much we enjoyed this campground after reading some of the reviews (we generally dry camp and Nation and State parks). If your unit can fit and you don't mind taking your time and getting into a small spot, this may be a good location for you. It provided a great camping spot close to Big Sur, Carmel, and Monterey. We camped at Saddle Mountain Ranch Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Ed Z'berg Sugar Pine Point SP, Tahoma, California

Date of Stay: July, 2015 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

This is a very nice state campground with property that extends all the way to Lake Tahoe. There are no hook-ups but the dump and water fill facilities were adequate. The loops also had many water points to fill water close to your campsite. The campground is well laid out with a good amount of space between sites and shade from the various pine trees. Lake Tahoe could be accessed by vehicle or by taking the bike paths down to the Ed Z'berg vacation home area. Bears were active and did wake our tent camping neighbors one night. The bear boxes were of two sizes and our rolling cooler barely fit into the older style bear box (with a high lift height) at our site. The campsite did not sell wood or ice. We camped at Ed Z'berg Sugar Pine Point SP in a Travel Trailer.

Angel Creek Campground, Wells, Nevada

Date of Stay: July, 2015 - $15.00
Overall Rating:

This campground is at 6800 ft about 8 miles south of Wells, NV. The temperature in Wells was 94 degrees and the temperature was tolerable at Angel Creek, especially after the sun set behind the mountain. The campsites spaces are rather small and not that level, but the distance between sites is generally very generous. The campsites had a number of water locations and the warning mentioned in a previous review has been removed (we drank the water). If you don't mind driving a few miles off the highway to be away from the other commercial campgrounds with no hook-ups, this is a great place. There is a second campground at Angel Lake (8800ft) about four miles up the road, but the road does become steeper and tighter towards the top. Those sites would be great in a small camper or tent (generally 30ft or less). Angel Lake was beautiful for our evening hike. We camped at Angel Creek Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Green River KOA, Green River, Utah

Date of Stay: June, 2015 - $41.00
Overall Rating:

An above average KOA that provides easy access to I-80. The water and electrical sites were very close together, but did provide for easy drive through access. The staff is helpful, friendly, and keep a clean campground. The restrooms were very clean. The campground is also just far enough from the highway to be relatively quiet. It is in a somewhat industrial area, but that only interferes with the views since you may be looking at some sort of tanks. We did use the pool, which was low at the time and did not appear to be high enough to reach the filters (we accepted the risk and swam anyway). This is a dirt/gravel campground and would be very muddy when it rains. We camped at Green River KOA in a Travel Trailer.

North Rim Campground (NPS Campground), Grand Canyon National Park, Arizona

Date of Stay: June, 2015 - $18.00
Overall Rating:

If you are visiting the North Rim, this is you closest option. The campground is very nice, with no hook-ups. The paved roads and pads (along with trees) make some of the driving and parking tight, but the sites are generally large and well spaced out with shade. The shade did interfere some with our top mounted solar panels, but they do allow limited generator use (2 hrs AM / 2 hrs PM). The campground has a dump and freshwater station that is a bit tight but functional. Sites are not all that level. Only a few sites have limited views of the Canyon. The campground has a nice general store, pay showers, and laundry. It is about a 1.2 mile hike from the visitor's center and lodge. The north rim is far away from most major services, but they do have a small gas station on site. We stopped in Kanab for groceries and propane before arriving. The pace of the campground is more relaxed than many of the other NP campgrounds we have visited. The facility has laundry and pay showers. We camped at North Rim Campground (NPS Campground) in a Travel Trailer.

Watchman Campground (NPS Campground), Zion National Park, Utah

Date of Stay: June, 2015 - $18.00
Overall Rating:

Watchman is a very nice campground that is above average for National Park Campgrounds (electric) and very convenient to Zion. We did not move our vehicle after we arrived and used our bikes to go to the visitor center and catch the tram. The facility has new restrooms and the sites are a reasonable amount of room apart. We stayed in B32, which is on the outside loop under Watchman Mountain. The river front sites are the nice, but anyone can go cool off in the river at one of the sand beaches. Campground has a two spot dump and potable water fill station. South Campground (first come first serve) was supposedly full at 9:30 AM the day we arrived, so reservations at Watchman are nice to have if you are visiting Zion. We camped at Watchman Campground (NPS Campground) in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

- Walk or ride your bike once you arrive. If the tram is in service it provides a great way (and only way) to see the park.

- Sign up for the two hour ranger led tour that takes place on a tram designated for only that tour.

Dead Horse Point State Park, Moab, Utah

Date of Stay: June, 2015 - $28.00
Overall Rating:

Dead Horse Point Campground is close to Canyonlands NP and 35-45 min from Arches NP and Moab and about 5-10 degrees cooler than. This is a very nice small (21 sites and narrow road) campground with electrical hook-up. The paved areas can be rather small and steep, but the sites are generally large with a covered picnic table and a separate tent camping pad area. The restrooms were very clean individual toilet and sinks (no showers). The facility had a dump site but no potable water. Views from most campsites are very nice since the campground is tiered. There is no shade since the area only has Juniper bushes. The campground is generally full, but we got a canceled 33 ft campsite at noon on a Friday after we called ahead to check availability. They do have a few first come first serve sites and if someone is checking out they will let you know the day prior so you can be at the visitor center at 8:00 to get the site if you so desire. We camped at Dead Horse Point State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Colorado National Monument - Saddlehorn Campground, Fruita, Colorado

Date of Stay: May, 2015 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

Saddlehorn is beautiful campground in Colorado NM. It provides spectacular views of the Colorado river valley below. The sites are generally smaller and not all that level. Our 30ft total length TT was one of the larger units in the campground. The campground is on a slope so even some of the higher sites still have good views even if you are not on the outside loop close to the drop off. Check the tunnel heights to make sure you fit through prior to your climb up to the campground (11'5" on the edge and 16'1" at center of the road). Standard NP type facilities with updated bathrooms that have running water. The campground does not have a dump station or water fill up. The visitor center at Fruita had a free and well kept dump and water fill up station. We camped at Colorado National Monument - Saddlehorn Campground in a Travel Trailer.
