Peter D's RV Park, Sheridan, Wyoming

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $41.00
Overall Rating:

Sites are really tight here. The electric post for the site next to us was less than 5' from us. Room enough room for a chair or two. Not the best of values at $285 for a 1 week stay with Good Sam discount. There is zero shade here and being down in a hollow it can get really hot here. The cable lineup is very limited at 12 stations, the 4 networks carried are all out of Rapid City, SD??? The hookups all worked fine and the place was clean. We would stop again, but not for a week. We camped at Peter D's RV Park in a Motorhome.

Sheridan is blessed to have two very good local Breweries. BTB, Bear Tooth, and Luminous both have some very good beer. No food, but Food Trucks at certain times. Luminous' HH is 2 - 4, $1 off. BTB's HH is 4 - 6, 50 cents off. Head towards town, cross the tracks and take the first left. They are both down on the right hand side.

Absaroka Bay RV Park, Cody, Wyoming

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

We paid the weekly rate of $238 tax included for a 50 amp FHU site. We had a pull thru as most all sites here are pull thrus. They are not the most level of sites, but we could level. There was some up slope towards the front of the site, we kept our MH to the back of the site. The office did tell us to do so when we checked in. RV washing is allowed for $10, that is always a big plus for us full timers. We had OTA stations from both WY & MT here. Verizon broadband was very good. Wifi was also very good during our stay. Lots of things to see and do in the Cody area. Yellowstone is a long day trip, but the ride has some incredible scenery. Plus all the Cody stuff mentioned in earlier reviews. I wish we had stayed two weeks here. We would stay here again. We camped at Absaroka Bay RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Two breweries in town and several other places for a cold one. The Millstone was the better bet of the two for something to eat and a good cold brew. Pat O'Hara's seemed more like a place for the younger crowd, only two of their beers were on tap and it was not the kind of place that we like to eat at. Big open garage door to enter and lots of flies. The Irma Hotel and Saloon is also a very good bet and had some very nice mounts inside. It is a must stop while in Cody.

Wind River RV Park, Riverton, Wyoming

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $37.00
Overall Rating:

This place is a bit rough around the edges, but the hookups all worked well. Tight side by side hookups. If you have a neighbor they will be really close, pass the Grey Poupon please. This only happened 2 nights during our 7 night stay. Most sites are long level pull thrus. If you are in a MH, ask for a site that faces away from the storage building. That will keep the afternoon sun off your windshield. The laundry and rest rooms are fairly new and in very good condition. There is road construction in town, so call for directions for best route in. OTA TV was fair with 3 networks. Verizon broadband was very excellent. We camped at Wind River RV Park in a Motorhome.

Western Hills Campground, Rawlins, Wyoming

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

A very popular overnight stop for I-80 / US-287 Travelers. It is a very well run RV Park with a fair price. We paid the Good Sam rate of $33 per night with tax included. We had a 50 amp FHU with cable. Wifi varied, but was usually good outside of peak hours. Pull thru sites are fairly tight side to side, but are very long and very level. Nice wide interior roads making pulling in and out of sites easy. Rawlin's is worth a couple of days to see the area. Less than an hour up US-287 and onto WY 220 are 3 stops worth a visit. Visit Independence Rock at the rest area first, then head back to Devil's Gateway overlook and then to the Mormon Historic Site. The details of the Martin Handcart Company rescue are documented here. Well worth your time. This is where the Oregon Trail, Mormon Trail and more crossed the Continental Divide. The second must see while in the area is the Wyoming Frontier Prison. We spent 5 nights and would come again. We camped at Western Hills Campground in a Motorhome.

Buck's Sports Grill in town is a good place for a cold one and a bite to eat. We had the Supreme Pizza and took half of it home. It was outstanding. Pabst Blue Ribbon pints are $1 all the time. Many other good beers on tap as well. If you go, tell Sean that Bob & Inga said Hello.

Pine Forest RV Park , Dutch John, Utah

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $56.00
Overall Rating:

Expensive ‚Äčat $111.54 for 2 nights in a very tight right hand side back-in 50 amp FHU site. No cable here and 1 OTA network station. Very good wifi. The "dips" mentioned are horrible. They are very sharp and tight and then angled across the road so they cannot be hit straight on. One side of the axle goes in and while coming out the other side drops. Severe side to side rocking occurs even at 1 MPH. No excuse for this stuff. Sites are not the most level, but most are doable. The very nice sites were all taken by what appeared to be seasonal campers. Transient sites are not as nearly as nice. They have a 'pet' deer that wonders around the CG. We camped at Pine Forest RV Park in a Motorhome.

Green River Campground, Dinosaur National Monument - NPS, Jensen, Utah

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $9.00
Overall Rating:

WOW, OTA TV. Completely did not expect that. But Verizon BB was barely 3G and worse at times. Loop A & C are FCFS, A is the better bet for larger rigs with mostly level sites, but minimal shade in this loop. Came in mid-July on a Wed and left 5 days later on a Mon. Sites were available all days. Early afternoon is a good time to find a site. Trails, the Sounds of Silence was hot and boring, go backwards if you want to try this trail. Best hike that we found was Harper's Trail in CO. 30 miles or so off of US-40 in Dinosaur, CO. The 2 mile round trip trail is a fairly easy hike. It is at 7510' so it makes a great option if its really hot back at the Green River CG. If your looking to kill some time then Fantasy Canyon is interesting (make sure you find the back side where the round bench is). We enjoyed our stay here and would come again. We camped at Green River Campground, Dinosaur National Monument - NPS in a Motorhome.

Uncompahgre River RV Park (55+ park), Olathe, Colorado

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $38.00
Overall Rating:

Our third stay. The Fun Factor is no longer here at all. While the new owners are nice, it is not run nearly as well as on our previous two stays. It is still the best bet for an RV site around in this area of CO so we would return. When I called, I stated we were in a MH and if we could have a shaded spot. We were given site 11, probably the worst site here for a MH. Full sun on the windshield from 1 - 6 during the worst heat of the day. On day 2 the electric failed, so we were given the option of moving across to site 12. Completely night and day, site 12 was very nice for the balance of our 2 week stay. Our AC could keep up with the triple digit heat we arrived in. This shaded row was empty except for 1 site on our arrival. So why did they put us in site 11? Park has a couple of Yahoos with 5th wheels who think it is ok to let their trucks stay half in the street. The clown in the corner had 10' feet between the back of his truck and his trailer. By sticking out in the road he make it tough for others to make the really tight swing around the corner. See class A below. Hopefully, the new owners will catch on and put a stop to crap like this. We camped at Uncompahgre River RV Park (55+ park) in a Motorhome.

La Plata County Fairgrounds, Durango, Colorado

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

Sites are now $25 a night so the value is no longer there. But you cannot beat the location. The women in the office are very helpful. There is only 1 usable 50 amp site, site 2. Site 1 has 50 amp service, but no way anything but a small travel trailer would want that site. It is 17' wide against a fence with overhanging branches and on a side slope. Sites 2 - 6 are all 25' wide and level. Electric is back left on all sites. Water is shared, back left for sites 1, 3 & 5 and back right for sites 2, 4 & 6. We came in with a full tank and did not use the water. No dump station here. OTA TV and Verizon were both excellent. The trolley is $1 and runs way off posted schedule. Lots of downside here, gravel, dusty lot with lots of horse crap and full sun all day. Very busy with workers behind the RV sites and horse trailers coming and going. Overflowing trash containers. We camped at La Plata County Fairgrounds in a Motorhome.

Lots of great options around for a cold one. Steamworks has $3 pints on Thursdays and daily HH. Durango Brewing Co. is a .5 mile walk N with HH Tues - Thurs. The Irish Embassy has a jam session on Sunday afternoon that was fun. Many places in town have HH 7 days a week. Durango Rocks and is a must visit city.

Sky Ute Casino RV Park, Ignacio, Colorado

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

We paid the Passport America rate of $19.50 plus 3% lodging tax for a 50 amp FHU site with very good WiFi. The site was paved with concrete liners and curbing. It was double wide at the rear for toad parking and had a nice concrete patio area with a picnic table. As mentioned it is a bit tight for toad parking, but better than a lot of other places. Overall a very well designed layout. We had pretty good OTA TV when we arrived on a weekend. But it was a bit more fuzzy on weekdays. Verizon cell and broadband were both very good. We camped at Sky Ute Casino RV Park in a Motorhome.

The Casino is allows smoking and it was pretty bad on the weekend. We went in again during the week and it was not as bad. There is a sports bar inside just off the casino. BSB (Bottom Shelf Brewery) is a good bet for a brew and to eat. Take a left on 517, then right on 516 back to Bayfield.

Riana Abiquiu Lake COE, Abiquiu, New Mexico

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

We agree with the earlier review on this being a great COE campground. As mentioned the women hosting is wonderful. We called the day before we arrived and she said if we got here early we would probably get an electric site. Which we did, site 2. We did not pickup any OTA TV, but our Verizon cell and broadband were both very good. When coming in, pull up to the booth as it is not always staffed. The host is probably to your left and directly below. It is a steep grade coming in and not something you want to park on. The CG in general is on a fairly steep side hill dropping down to the lake and sites can vary. In the Pedernal Loop (E & W), sites 2, 3, 5, 11, 12, 13, 14 & 15 are mostly level and good for MH's. In the no hookup Chama Loop sites 18, 19, 23 & 24 looked pretty good. If your over 32' I would avoid the Puerco Loop which is just past the dump station. The dump station looked like it could be fairly tight for larger RV's. We did not try it. Overall we had a very nice 2 day stay and would return. We camped at Riana Abiquiu Lake COE in a Motorhome.

The Echo Amphitheater can be seen in an hour or two and is worth a visit. The Christ in the Desert Monastery is down a 13 mile narrow dirt road. The road is classified as 1 lane with pull outs for passing. It is an interesting drive into the canyon and the road was in pretty good condition when we drove it. Figure on 45 minutes to an hour just for the 13 mile drive each way. The Ghost Ranch was closer to Hwy 84 on a really bad gravel road. But there are some very good hikes to be had there.

Cadillac Ranch RV Park (formerly Amarillo West View RV Park), Amarillo, Texas

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

We paid the cash rate of $25 per for a 50 amp FHU. It makes for an ok pit stop when traveling I-40. Limited number of 50 amp sites available. The RV portion of the park is definitely rough around the edges. But everything worked, the sewer did drain slow at times. WiFi was pretty good for us, we were at the end of a row next to the bath rooms. The site surface is mostly large stone, 1.5 - 2", over gravel and mostly level. Can be hard on the feet. If there is no one around upon arrival, check the gift shop. Not a destination stop, but ok for visiting Palo Duro Canyon and stocking up on supplies as there is pretty much 1 of everything here. We camped at Cadillac Ranch RV Park (formerly Amarillo West View RV Park) in a Motorhome.

Wichita Bend RV Park, Wichita Falls, Texas

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $17.00
Overall Rating:

High marks for value. This was our second stay here, sites here are so level we did not bother to use our jacks. We were in the middle row that has shared electric boxes, 50, 30 & 20. So our site #15 had the 50 amp, the site next to us would have had the 30 amp. A great easy off, easy on RV park when passing thru the area. I don't believe the earlier review about 'sketchy people' walking thru the park, it is possible though. That reviewer has 1 review, so I wonder if he owns a park nearby. OTA TV was very good. There is a suspension bridge across the river to a nice walking trail that goes along the river. We camped at Wichita Bend RV Park in a Motorhome.

US-287 Business has lots of options for a cold one. Wichita Falls Brewing in town has a couple of good beers, but no food. The Water Hole is a local place with good prices and people. Across the street is a new, old place now called O'Briens. Good prices and nice and clean. Avoid the Silver Dollar Saloon unless you like over paying for a well drink.

Hickory Creek COE, Lewisville, Texas

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $15.00
Overall Rating:

We came in mid week without a reservation, but we had checked that morning and had a list of available 50 amp sites open for 3 days. The wonderful women working at the entrance booth recommended site 87 to us and it was a fantastic lakeside site. We had a great breeze off the lake and could actually sit outside during the day. Temps were hitting 97 during our stay. Like many COE campgrounds, the sites vary big time. Check details on the reservation site (which does not describe grade) so a partial A list for MH's are 13, 14, 16, 18, 20, 26, 34, 48, 52, 60, 74, 79, 83, 85, 87, 88, 89, 97 & 99. Some B sites that will also work are 1, 3, 28, 29, 37, 43, 47, 50, 51, 54, 55, 64, 65, 81, 82 & 90. Smaller and towed units have much more options. OTA TV and Verizon were both very good.

Not much around in the way of a good local watering hole. We tried 3, Walter's is nearby and is a complete dump. Lake Dallas Point is a much the best option and has very good food, but it is a smoking bar so be warned. Tornado Alley Pub is non-smoking, but was not a place we would order food at.

Prior reviews are spot on. We had a nice long level pull thru and only connected to electric and cable. Great service. We were stuck on I-20 after a fatal accident shut down the highway. Miss Ellie was going to block a site with cones for us, but we made it just before closing. After arriving we were led to our site, a nice long pull thru as we did not want to unhook for our 1 night stay. We would come back. We camped at Miss Ellie's RV Park in a Motorhome.
