Baker Creek Campground - NPS, Baker, Nevada

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $8.00
Overall Rating:

Quiet, beautiful park in Great Basin National Park. We did manage to get our 43.5' toy hauler into this campground (as well as drove through Lower Lehman successfully). For the most part, we could drive through the campground with our big rig, but a couple turns were difficult with the trees and rocks. We took it slow, and it was doable. There are plenty of sites that were long enough for our rig, but the problem was the angle of the sites--getting the rig into the site without hitting trees or rocks. Many sites are not level, but some are. No hookups, but plenty of water spigots throughout, as well as pit toilets. We love this park and would definitely return again. We camped at Baker Creek Campground - NPS in a Fifth Wheel.

Pony Express RV Resort, North Salt Lake, Utah

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $63.00
Overall Rating:

Nice big, long sites, but ours was not level. Close neighbors, but not as close as some places we've seen. The sewer is located at the rear, so bring a long hose. Our picnic table was right by the neighbors sewer hose, so we moved it, as that was not a pleasant place to eat. The park has some nice amenities, but we wouldn't call it a "resort." There was a pool, but only one umbrella, and no other shade to speak of. In the mid-90s, some shade would be nice. They assured me they had ordered another umbrella when we asked if they had any more. So when it comes in, there will be a grand total of 2 shady spots by the pool...huh. No pool toys for community use--you had to buy them in the campground store. Easy to maneuver, nice wide roads. This RV park was just purchased by Sun Resorts, so they transitioned the internet while we were there. It still worked well, but they have you sign your understanding that it is not to be used for gaming or streaming movies (bummer). No shade in the hot summer sun at the sites. We camped at Pony Express RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

1.75 hours to Bonneville Salt Flats rest area and Speedway. 10 miles west is the historic Wendover Airfield, where bombers trained before using Fat Man/Little Boy. Independence Day and Con Air were filmed at the airfield. Climb the original tower and see the Officer's Club and museum. The town of Wendover will eventually have a Bonneville Speedway museum. Antelope Island is a fun stop, and we ignored the nay-sayers and swam at the beach. It was fun, even with the brine flies and shrimp.

Mountain View RV Park, Boise, Idaho

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

We were only in Boise for 2 nights, so we wanted somewhere reasonably priced. We knew this would be a "sardine can" type of park, right by the freeway and the airport. But, given the price compared to others, we stayed here. Lots of permanent or long-term residents, but things were kept clean, and we saw some amazing gardens in their tiny lots. We had to park just right in order to open our awning and our slides, as the sites were so narrow. There was certainly nothing pretty about this park, but it suited our purposes. There was definitely traffic noise, but it didn't keep us up at night. The internet plan was a joke. You get 6 hours free, then you have to pay. Unfortunately, it's not 6 hours of actual use. We logged in, checked our email, and wisely shut down our computers, saving our time for later use. Wrong! The clock doesn't stop. Once you log in, your 6 hours will be used up, regardless of your actual use. No pool, no amenities, but as I said, it was a quick, inexpensive stop. Interior roads are tight, but doable. People park all the way to the end of their sites, which may make pulling into your site difficult, depending on your size. We camped at Mountain View RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Picabo Angler RV Park, Picabo, Idaho

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $27.00
Overall Rating:

We had planned on dry-camping at one of the free areas along the river. But, with temperatures projected in the mid-90's, we thought our dog would appreciate the electricity and the air conditioner. We wanted to visit Craters of the Moon and Twin Falls, so this park was well-situated. After checking in at the gas station, we drove to the small park. We received a free upgrade to a pull-through site, as someone was in our reserved site upon arrival. The sites were roomy and easy to get into. The bathroom and shower room were the cleanest we have seen to-date. We enjoyed watching the sheep in the adjacent field (as did our dog). We would stay there again. We camped at Picabo Angler RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Yellowstone Golf Resort, Ashton, Idaho

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $34.00
Overall Rating:

Clean park with lots of privacy. The staff is really nice and helpful. We had a military discount, as well as weekly rates. My daughter helped set up the library (for fun!) while we were there, and let me tell you, you will not see a bigger RV library than what is here. They also have games to borrow, 18 holes of golf, a playground, and more. Yet, it is quiet with incredible stars at night. It is a bit of a drive to Yellowstone and Grand Tetons, but the price and proximity between the two made it a perfect place to stay. It is also near Mesa Falls, and the city of Idaho Falls. We would stay here again with no hesitation. We camped at Yellowstone Golf Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Kahnderosa River Campground, Cataldo, Idaho

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

Beautiful spot right on the river. We caught a few fish. It's too bad it's so close to the freeway--the reason for our markdown to a 7. The noise was constant, although didn't keep us from sleeping. The owners are so nice. Currently, the park is for sale, as they are wanting to retire, so changes may happen. For now, the price is right, the scenery gorgeous, and the location excellent. Some spots have sewer, but the ones right by the river do not. We camped at Kahnderosa River Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Lost Johnny Point Campground USFS, Hungry Horse, Montana

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $12.00
Overall Rating:

Please understand that there are two different campgrounds by similar names: Lost Johnny Campground and Lost Johnny Point Campground. Both are within less than a mile of each other. The former is a small campground, that would be difficult to maneuver a big rig. The latter, Lost Johnny Point, has plenty of room for big rigs. When we arrived, someone was in our campsite, which had our reservation tag on it. The host was wonderful - he tracked them down, had them move, and helped them find an open space. The campground itself is quiet and beautiful - right on the reservoir. Potable water available and pit toilets. Nowhere to fill water, so come prepared. We loved the quiet of this campground. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Lost Johnny Point Campground USFS in a Fifth Wheel.

Sahara Creek DNR Horse Camp, Ashford, Washington

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $1.00
Overall Rating:

Camping the way we like it--quiet and one with nature. These sites are free with the WA Discover Pass ($35/year). Lots of big sites that would fit our 42.5' toy hauler with no problem. We had the place mostly to ourselves, with only a couple of others coming in during the day to ride horses, and two others camping during our stay. It was nice and quiet. Lots of trees, so for those who need solar, it wouldn't work. An easy drive to Mt. Rainier Natl Park. We camped at Sahara Creek DNR Horse Camp in a Fifth Wheel.

We loved this park. Big grassy sites, with lots of shade trees, right on the beautiful river. The office has books, movies to borrow, and lots of good information.

Sun Lakes-Dry Falls State Park, Coulee City, Washington

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

Beautiful campground, but one of the priciest state parks we've stayed at. We stayed in the upper campground with full hookups, that would fit our 42.5' toy hauler. There is a lower campground as well. Also adjacent to the park is a private campground. The sites were very clean, and we witnessed the host washing down the picnic tables at another site. Additionally, we had a medical emergency, and received immediate attention--the rangers and campground host at the private park wear multiple hats, and first-responder is among them. We utilized the swimming beach, as well as the golf, mini-golf, and water wars at the private park. Very interesting area, so definitely worth the visit. We camped at Sun Lakes-Dry Falls State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Camp Rilea (Military FamCamp), Camp Rilea Armed Forces Training CT, Oregon

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

Nice location and easy access. The sites themselves have little to be desired, though. It's basically a parking lot, and sites are close together. Regardless, the location, as well as the security of base, made it a good stop. Laundry is free, although you pay a $5 fee to get an access card. With a family of five, we more than made up for the $5 fee! We enjoyed watching new recruits train for their upcoming basic training--it inspired our boys who both want to join the military. Other than the training, the base is quite quiet and small. Perfect access for Astoria, Seaside and Cannon Beach. We even drove down to Tilamook for cheese tasting.

Be sure to stop at Bowpickers in Astoria for delicious fish and chips made with albacore tuna. They only take cash, and they only serve fish and chips. It's a little "land" boat across the street from the Coast Guard facility and maritime museum. Tilamook Cheese Factory is only 1.25 hrs away and worth the visit. Of course, be sure to see Haystack Rock on Cannon Beach. Lots of Lewis and Clark history around, including numerous national park sites and the tower in Astoria.

Ainsworth State Park, Cascade Locks, Oregon

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $24.00
Overall Rating:

A beautiful state park situated right on the Columbia Gorge. Unfortunately, a big fire last fall has closed down most of the hikes in the area. Not being from the area, we weren't aware of the fire until we were emailed special instructions a few weeks out about how to access the campground. Had we been notified when the fire occurred, we may have changed stayed elsewhere. Regardless, the campground was untouched by the fire and is still lush with trees and undergrowth. When we pulled up to our site, we found someone in it. The ranger on duty took care of it immediately, and we only had to wait about 15 minutes to get into our site. Our site wasn't very level, but we managed with our blocks. Quiet park, and good location once the major attractions open back up again. We camped at Ainsworth State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Gorgeous park within walking distance of the dog-friendly beach. It was tight getting into our pull through with our 42.5' FW because of all the foliage lining the site, but it was doable. Lots of shade, privacy due to all the trees/bushes, and a nice open field where the kids could throw the ball. The bathrooms were kept clean. There is traffic noise, as the highway passes right next to the park, but it gets quiet at night. We would definitely stay there again. We camped at Humbug Mountain State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Campground by the Lake, South Lake Tahoe, California

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $33.00
Overall Rating:

Nice campground just across the street from the lake. Our site had plenty of room between us and our neighbor. Some spots were tight to drive through with a big rig (lots of trees lining the road), but we took it slow and made it through just fine (43' fifth wheel). The bike path is right by the campground, so it is easy to hop on and ride to your destination. Restrooms were very clean, and bug-free (which makes our kids very happy!). Wifi didn't work well at all. There were two dump stations, and it was too small for us to easily get in and out of. We ended up backing out, as we would have hit either the fence or the station signs/pipes trying to pull through. We camped at Campground by the Lake in a Fifth Wheel.

As others have said, it is just basically a parking lot--either asphalt or gravel, depending on what site you are assigned. However, it is easy in and out, and decently priced for a campground in the heart of the city. We stayed here because we needed a campground near a maintenance shop we were visiting the next day, and this fit the bill. Big-rig friendly, and full hookups.

The host recommended we take a family bike ride to historic Old Sacramento on the American River Bike Trail just by the campground. While the trail is beautiful near the campground, I do NOT recommend riding in to Old Sac. Just past the bridge, it becomes tent city. The trash, drugs, excrement, arrests, and some not-so-friendly people were not what we wanted to expose our kids to. We even saw a chalk body-outline. However, if you go left from the campground on the trail, the trail is safe.
