Tonto National Forest / Houston Mesa Campground, Payson, Arizona

Date of Stay: November, 2017 - $24.00
Overall Rating:

For a NFS campground I thought the fee was far too much. $24/night! Other reviews had said $12 so don't know when the price doubled!! The sites are nicely spaced through the trees. Roads and sites paved but as someone said, quite a few would be hard for larger rigs to level. A very small lot of firewood is $7. Showers $3 for 5 minutes. And yes, they are still charging for campers to use dump station. We camped at Tonto National Forest / Houston Mesa Campground in a Travel Trailer.

As mentioned you have to pay to dump. Go to free dump station at Giant Station, Hwy 260 E, Payson. They have 3 dump stations, RV washing, propane, gas etc.

Catalina State Park, Tucson, Arizona

Date of Stay: November, 2017 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

Great bathroom facilities. Tiled showers. Sealed roads and parking but my one complaint is the picnic table and bbq area were dirt. Also think $30 is a bit high for SP but that seems to be AZ policy everywhere. Great walks in the park and a good shopping centre across the road from the entrance to the park. We camped at Catalina State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Brantley Lake State Park, Carlsbad, New Mexico

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $14.00
Overall Rating:

Great value for water and electric. Dump station only half mile away. Lake views but camp is not at lake edge. Saw Park Rangers and Campground hosts every day but still rubbish wasnt't always cleared away if left by other campers. Some walking trails and 2km road to park gate is safe for bike riding - little traffic. We camped at Brantley Lake State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Bottomless Lakes State Park, Roswell, New Mexico

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $14.00
Overall Rating:

Great value for water and electric. Dump station at the gate and old, but tidy bathroom block. Lovely lake. Wonderful for a swim to cool off on the hot days. Only downside was flies and biting insects so you do need insect repellant. We camped at Bottomless Lakes State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $52.00

We stayed here twice in the last 10 days. More expensive than usual due to Balloon Fiesta. Very efficient check-in. Bus stop right outside the RV Park gate to downtown. Some sites have patios and concrete pads. Neither of ours did. We camped at Trailer Ranch RV Park (55+ Park) in a Travel Trailer.

Large gravel area (I think most around here are like this) with quite a few large trees. Picnic table. Reasonable Wifi. Excellent value for a full hook up. Good laundry and other rooms with table, chairs, sofas, pool table. Unfortunately the pool was being repaired so no pool or spa at present. Very friendly staff.

Spanish Trail RV Park & Campground, Moab, Utah

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $39.00
Overall Rating:

Gravel sites close together but all Moab RV parks we saw were like this. Small grass area and one large tree per site. So hot when we were here (over 100). We were inside with air-conditioning going. Poor WiFi but excellent AT&T reception. Good laundry. We camped at Spanish Trail RV Park & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

St. Vrain State Park, Longmont, Colorado

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $26.00
Overall Rating:

This price was for the campsite. It is another $7/day for vehicle access to a Colorado State Park unless you have an annual pass. Park borders I-25 and is noisy. Site 33 is the furthest from I-25. That said, it is very, clean, tidy. Sheltered picnic tables where there are no trees. We camped at St. Vrain State Park in a Travel Trailer.
