Comlara Park Campground, Hudson, Illinois

Date of Stay: June, 2015 - $22.00
Overall Rating:      

Overall, we were happy with our experience at Comlara Park. The roads at the back part of the campground were a bit rough, with some fairly deep pot-holes. The bathrooms left a lot to be desired. They are basically just vault toilets, which is fine, but they could have been cleaner.

The staff at the visitor center, and the check-in booth were very helpful and quite friendly. They offer small boat rentals at the launch area. The young man working the rentals managed to keep everyone happy, even though he was by himself and quite busy.

There are lots of fishing opportunities, and the park offers quite a few programs for the young ones. There are lots of kids in the park, so be careful driving through. We had several young children dart out in front of our vehicle. No fault of the park, just a word of caution.

The visitor's center has ice, firewood, and live bait for sale at reasonable prices. Unfortunately, with all the rain lately, the firewood was damp and very difficult to light.

We would definitely stay here again, but will choose a site at the lower campground area as there is more shade available, and more suitable for a smaller travel trailer. Make sure to apply bug spray, and sunscreen. If you're not used to Illinois summers, the mosquitoes might catch you by surprise. Also, drink a lot of water. Even though it may only be 80 degrees, you can quickly become dehydrated when there 70%+ humidity. We camped at Comlara Park Campground in a Travel Trailer.

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

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

This was by far our favorite camping experience! The Watchman campground was spectacular. The park staff was knowledgeable and very helpful. The tram/bus system ran right on schedule, and allowed for easy access to all areas of the park. The hiking trails were well maintained and marked, and drinking water is available at most trail heads. Our site backed up to the Virgin river, and had a picnic table and a fire ring. This is definitely on our list to do again! We camped at Watchman Campground (NPS Campground) in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

If hiking, trekking poles are a great advantage. Many of the trails can become slippery from rain or mist. The poles can help navigate safely. A good pair of hiking boots with good traction is advised too.
