Horsetooth Reservoir, South Bay Campground, Fort Collins, Colorado

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $37.00
Overall Rating:

We chose to reserve ($10 if you call, less if online). For Full Hook Ups (50 amps & good water pressure) it's $30/night plus a vehicle entrance fee of $7/night. Pit toilets. Our site (S-6) was almost level and spacious with a picnic table and fire pit. Nice views of the canyon from our site. We had open skies for TV reception (just young trees planted in our area) and good 4G Verizon service. The interior roads DO have tight turns for bigger rigs. They've built a beautiful new Information Center as you come in. It wasn't open when we were there, but may be when next season starts. They also were just paving the county road (38E) that you use to access this campground. Be sure to turn in when it says Horsetooth Reservoir, South Campground whether or not you have a reservation. Wonderful camp hosts to help you out. The place was pretty quiet, probably because we were there mid September. We camped at Horsetooth Reservoir, South Bay Campground in a Motorhome.

We stayed here to visit Rocky Mountain National Park. It was peak foliage season. We also didn't have to drive our rig on Hwy 34 (may be necessary if you camp closer to RMNP), just our car. THAT is a twisty, steep mountain road.

Lewis Park, Wheatland, Wyoming

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $1.00
Overall Rating:

An address for Lewis Park that could work with your GPS is 14 Recreation Drive, Wheatland, WY. When you see the "Camping" sign, continue past it. The RV sites are on the left. They are back in sites. Each shares a pedestal with 2 power boxes with good 30/50 amp power. No water at the sites. When leaving there is a dump site with non potable water. You will face a lovely large treed grassy park with restrooms. They only ask for donations (at the sign). There are no reservations, just first come, first served. We arrived around noon. Of the 16 possible sites, we were the only ones there all day. None of the sites are really level, but they are manageable. Many are short for a 40' motorhome. We camped at Lewis Park in a Motorhome.

Boysen State Park, Shoshoni, Wyoming

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $17.00
Overall Rating:

GPS has troubles finding the correct spot. Signage is definitely an issue. We came from the north, via St Hwy 120. We passed through 3 tunnels as we approached Boysen St. Pk. Right after the 3rd tunnel is the 1st Boysen Pk campground (Lower Wind River). The sign is on the right, parallel to the road, so hard to notice. If you turn in here, it's better to approach on the left of the Boysen Pk sign for better access to the road into the Park. If you travel down (south) further a little ways you will come to the 2nd sign (Upper Wind River), also parallel to the road. This seems to be the the most scenic, with canyon views on both sides of the several campgrounds. Further south is a sign, facing the road, for 2 more campgrounds (Tamarisk & Bannan?). These appear to be not so green, very open. The Wind River sites have grass and trees and are closer to the Shoshoni River. Very helpful camp host. After Sept. 15th they don't take reservations, it's first come, first served. Upper Wind River filled by the end of the day. Level sites, with lovely views of the canyon, with a river running by the campground. They have well watered grass and trees. Only the reservable sites have been assigned numbers. We didn't reserve because it was after Labor Day. They had lots of sites filled by the end of the day, but there were still some left when we left the next day. We walked up a path toward the nearby earthen dam. We camped at Boysen State Park in a Motorhome.

Buffalo Bill State Park, Cody, Wyoming

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $22.00
Overall Rating:

This is at the North SHORE area. Most of the sites in Loops A and B are not level. Loop C has the most that come close to level. Loop A has 50 amp power and water. The water is low pressure, 8 psi for us, so we used our fresh water tank. Loops B & C are dry. The restrooms for each loop are pit toilets. Big rigs can fit, but it's a major struggle to get level. We camped at Buffalo Bill State Park in a Motorhome.

Yellowstone Holiday RV Campground & Marina, West Yellowstone, Montana

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $42.00
Overall Rating:

Full Hook Up sites with open sky for TV reception. Verizon reception good. Free WiFi that works well. Neat bathrooms. Nice, roomy sites, each with a concrete pad, picnic table and grass surrounding. Very helpful management. Easy access, right off Hwy 287. Highway noise was limited and didn't disturb our sleep. A great price for 15 minutes away from Yellowstone National Park. Great views of Lake Hebgen. We camped at Yellowstone Holiday RV Campground & Marina in a Motorhome.

Indian Creek Campground, Deer Lodge, Montana

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $32.00
Overall Rating:

There have full hook ups, with very clean bathrooms. Chose 30 amp site because it was cheaper than a 50 amp site. Good power. We received coupons for a nearby gas station (Conoco) and restaurant (4Bees). Open sky for TV reception (could have used cable at 50 amp site). Free WiFi that worked pretty well. Easy access to level sites. Well cared for campground. Helpful staff, they even let us choose a site of those available. We camped at Indian Creek Campground in a Motorhome.

Grant-Kohrs National Historic Site very near. Great ranch filled with original artifacts. Lots to learn about cowboys and ranching.

In nearby Deer Lodge you'll find the Old Montana Prison. Auto museum included with entrance ticket.

Silver Dollar Casino, Haugan, Montana

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $1.00
Overall Rating:

The best part of this park is that it's actually free, with 30 amp power available. It's set in pine woods, behind the Silver Dollar Cafe. The next best thing is the food (at decent prices) at that cafe. Not fancy, more home spun, but just wonderful. Warning, the meatloaf is cold, with hot gravy and hot mashed potatoes with hot gravy. Still, it tasted great. You can use the cafe's bathrooms. The cafe is open from 6am until 11pm, so that's helpful bathroom wise. You can take on water at a site prior to reaching your campsite. Most sites are level, some are spacious. Good for a short stay. We camped at Silver Dollar Casino in a Motorhome.

Camp Blanco RV Park, Port Orford, Oregon

Date of Stay: May, 2016 - $27.00
Overall Rating:

We heard scraping of the highway pavement as we tackled their driveway. It isn't all that steep, but the highway crowns significantly, forming a deep dip as you approach. Having approached very slowly, at an angle, we found no damage. Next time we'll try a greater angle. Despite being close to the highway the traffic didn't disrupt our sleep. Because it's their slow time (crammed June-August, then Oct-Dec), and because we're staying a week, (our best rate came by staying for a week) he let us choose our site among the traveler RV sites available. We got a great one with lots of grass, a picnic table and space. None of the others have this much space, nor picnic tables. Most are pretty tight sites. That entrance and space between sites are the only bad things we see here. FHU (we had strong 30 amps), great Verizon cell reception, satellite TV reception and free WiFi (in our RV). Their restrooms are among the nicest we've experienced. The place is VERY neat and the management is just as friendly and helpful as all get out! The owner even looked to see if anything seemed damaged from our approach. On top of that, after we'd settled in, a young man gave us a "Welcome" gift of tea bags, salt water taffy, playing cards, popcorn and tourist info. That was a first! We can walk to the church we go to, a restaurant, and the Ray's grocery store (even a laundromat is across the street). Access to the beach is not far. We camped at Camp Blanco RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Try the best fish & chips on the west coast at "Crazy Norwegians." We visited the Patrick Hughes House (Victorian) and Cape Blanco Lighthouse (you can climb to where the Fresnel lens is moving) at Cape Blanco State Park. The Port Orford dolly dock is unique, using cranes to lift boats because they can't be moored there. There is also Port Orford Heads State Park with the Lifeboat Station Museum. We also walked to great ocean views on the Watch Tower trail there.

Golden Bear RV Resort, Klamath, California

Date of Stay: April, 2016 - $21.00
Overall Rating:

A simple left turn off US 101 got us right into Golden Bear RV Resort. Despite being so close to the highway, the traffic at night is sparse and never bothered us. The staff was really friendly and helpful. There is a clubhouse (we didn't use) and they set up a fire at dusk in a stove near the river at night, with chairs for anyone who wanted to join. It was completely open, so satellite TV was good, as well as Verizon cell phone reception which was okay. Here we had strong 50 amp power, water, and sewer, plus a great view of the Klamath River right out our front window. We saw many birds and some harbor seals hang out on the river. Lots of empty spaces now because it's low season (they're closed in the winter, open April 1st). After July 4th it's crazy full. August is already booked. People come to fish salmon then. We parked on asphalt but our site was grass. We camped at Golden Bear RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Stafford RV Park and Campground, Scotia, California

Date of Stay: April, 2016 - $32.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed for a week, so got the weekly rate. Staff was very helpful and friendly. We had good power (30 amp) and water but no sewer. Our site was generous. The whole travelers' RV parking area was fresh cut grass, which we really enjoyed compared to gravel or sand. Lots of redwoods and blackberry bushes surrounded that area, so it was lovely to look out at. This was non peak season so few other RVs joined us. There are a number of seasonal sites, but they weren't all that visible from our site. We camped at Stafford RV Park and Campground in a Motorhome.
