Nice well cared for park. Discounts for various memberships, best one was for SKP's if you pay cash. Mostly pull through sites but since sewer is clear at back of site and only water is in the middle, you still have to unhook your tow vehicle as the sites are barely long enough for a big rig with a small tow. Off the beaten track farther than we expected but at least not too much traffic noise.

Twice a year on the long Memorial Day and Labor Day weekends, Packwood Washington comes alive with a huge flea market that takes over the entire town for three days as well as private homes having yard sales for miles each way. This is private property owned by Steve (number above) with a huge level field that the family allows everyone to camp on, in RV's right behind the big event. No hookups, some general courtesy rules and porta potties and dumpster provided. East end of town, turn right at intersection of Shell gas station and Snyder, turn right at 114 Snyder at the first long driveway. Funky and fun weekend with huge crowds at the markets and many RV'rs make this a destination weekend.

This is a gem of a campground in the woods with cafe/store, full hookups and pull throughs for big rigs so you don't have to unhook tow vehicles. So many interesting and lovely sites along the river and in the historical town of Fort Langley, including the filming sets of the popular television series "Supernatural." Easy drive south to the US Border crossing at Aldergrove so you don't have to fight the I-5 crossing.

Pretty park in green setting. Pull through sites are difficult to turn into with big 40' rigs. It can be done but carefully. 10% discount with Good Sam Memberships but there is still the 12% tax that is added to everything. Located at west end of Hope and must drive across town to the east to get to the Othello Tunnels which should not be missed. Beautiful surroundings with huge mountains rising above you like the Pali of Hawaii.

While traveling along the Icefields Parkway between Lake Louise and Jasper in Alberta, you will find the Columbia Icefield Center in Jasper National Park. This Center is located just below the enormous Athabasca Glacier. The lower parking lot is available for overnight camping for RV's without any hookups. You can visit the museum, dine in the cafeteria or restaurant, view the glaciers, take glacier hikes or ride the spectacular Ice Explorers on the glacier. Pit toilet available after hours when the center closes. Camping below these spectacular landscapes and watching sunsets and sunrises from your RV is a once in a lifetime opportunity.

Always wise to reserve ahead during busy summer at Parks Canada Campground Reservation System. A reservation fee of $10.80 is charged in addition to nightly rate. All amounts are charged at time of reservation. In addition, daily fees are charged for entering a National Park of $9.80 per person or $8.30 for seniors. Those are paid at entrance to Banff or Jasper National Park before reaching the campground. Park fee is good for all national parks you may visit during each day. Full hookups including sewer and pullover sites along roads so useable for big rigs and not needing to unhook. Huge campgrounds in the trees and must be aware of animals at all times. Bus service available at entry area to town of Banff.

Nice quiet area below dam. You cannot see the lake at all. Pullover sites from road with tables and hookups for RV sites. Can leave tow vehicles hooked up. Shopping in Shelby before entering Canada will save you tons of money for liquor or food. Directions in Russell Country Montana website are so misleading. They tell you it is .5 mile north of Shelby on I-15. No, it's not. You can exit on 364 right to Business Loop 15, turn right on Business Loop (Oilfield Road) and head southeast on business loop less than a half mile to entrance to campground on east side of street. Coordinates are N 48.521, W 111.855

This reservoir is managed by Bureau of Reclamation and there are several campgrounds all around the lake. The pay camp is at the Marina and has full hookups for $30.00 per night and 1/2 price for National Senior Passes. Many other campgrounds around lake are all free with tables and firepits and some even have cabanas. Beautiful historical setting for Lewis and Clark's expedition.

Four motorhomes traveled together to Hoovers to camp in comfort while being able to ride ATV's directly out of camp and onto the famous Paiute Trail. Nice sized site with grassy lawns and backing onto the Sevier River. Only six sites so need to reserve early. Rest of complex is comprised of 7 cabins of various sizes for up to large families. We came after the Labor Day holiday rush, so can't be sure what it's like with lots of other folks staying in all the cabins. Store with sport equipment rentals and a down home grill preparing three meals a day. Fun sportsman experience and great access to many trails.

Date of Stay:

Huge complex designed for large rallies and all kinds of sporting events including races and rodeos. Modern events center large enough for a thousand RVers but quite a distance from the campground area. There is no shuttle and many people had to rent cars who had not brought one. The walk is not too bad for those who can; however, it crosses through a dusty race track. It would be fitting for such a high-tech center to have a real walking trail or sidewalk. Pleasant grassy sites that are very close together especially for slide outs but they do have sewer hook-ups. Shopping close by for those with vehicles. Only real noise was one evening with stock car racing nearby.

Date of Stay:

Park is close to all the amenities of the town of Hardin. Spaces are very large with lots of breathing room. Many spaces rented out to long term workers. Owners are very friendly and helpful. Gift shop is kind of fun. Back of office is a wreck. No real amenities except showers and restrooms and worn wooden gazebos for picnic tables. Somewhat noisy as is close to Interstate - some trains, too. Cheap enough to be worth a stay if needed. Several miles to travel to Little Bighorn Battlefield.

Date of Stay:

Gravel and cut weed patches. More than half are long term workers. Overpriced. Walking distance to the real Fort Caspar which is very nice to visit. Office has empty shelves and coolers with no goods. Rest of office is strewn with debris. Continental breakfast consists of packaged sweet rolls tossed on a shelf. LIMIT ONE PER PERSON..no juice, coffee, etc...Quiet location and easy to get to off main interstate. One night stand kind of place if you could only afford it!

Had made reservations through the central Western Horizons System as members, and were still sent to the separate area that has no sewer dumps!! People were thinking that this area was only for non-members - Not so! A honeywagon comes by certain days of the week only to pump out your rig. So you have to watch your use of water. Nice location with good facilities and activities. Outside street noise levels can be quite high at the perimeters.

Date of Stay:

Classy rv park abutting San Diego Bay. Surrounded by a large lovely marina, city park along the shoreline and nice restaurants within walking distance. Nice landscaping, somewhat nazi-like rules & warnings! Very tight spaces along the park bay view, but each are secluded with lovely hedges and shrubs. Almost have no room to park a car with a big rig. Set back far enough away from all the 24/7 southern Cal traffic noise. Pricey, used a coupon from an RV magazine to get the rate somewhat lower.

This state park ranks as #3 in the nation and rightly so! You drive through suburban homes and suddenly you're in a forest. Many different camp loops with or without full hookups - your choice. Each site is in the woods and are so long they have doubles that are staggered with their own picnic outdoor areas and you don't even know they are next door. Views of the lake or river with trails, boat ramps for small motors, fishing docks and you still think you're alone. Top notch facilities, gorgeous views in the fall.
