Stapleton City Park, Stapleton, Nebraska

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $15.00
Overall Rating:      

We were looking for a place to stay in the general area (near the Sandhills Scenic drive yet not too close to the RR with night time traffic) to break up a long drive. We're self contained and don't use the facilities. We stayed on a Friday night in mid-October in our 25 foot MH. This is a very nice town CG. There are 4 sites with water and electric. The parking spaces are gravel surrounded by grass and mostly level. The park is clean and well maintained. There are trees throughout the park for shade (and pretty foliage in October). There's a dump station and dumpsters. There are bathrooms/showers that are open seasonally (closed by mid-October). There's no WiFi. There's good ATT and Verizon coverage. We were alone in the park and had a very quiet stay. We camped at Stapleton City Park in a Motorhome.

Chadron State Park, Chadron, Nebraska

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

We did not camp here, however, hiked through the CG during our stay at Red Cloud CG in mid-October. This appears to be a very nice CG with services. There's a primitive section $13/night and electric $20/night. The sites are arrayed in 2 loops and most parking areas are asphalt surrounded by grass and appear to be relatively level. There are a few trees for shade and lots of sun. Water and dump are available in the park. We met the office staff who were helpful and friendly. We camped at Chadron State Park in a Motorhome.

Red Cloud, Chadron, Nebraska

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $3.00
Overall Rating:      

We were looking for a place to stay in or near Nebraska National Forest/Chadron State Park that would be convenient to hiking trails. We're self contained and don't use facilities. We stayed on weeknights in mid-October in our 25 foot MH. This is a very nice primitive campground, conveniently located for hiking, and a great price at $5/$2.50 seniors. There are 12 sites off a dirt road. One or 2 others were occupied during our stay. Most sites are back ins-that need some leveling. There's one pull through and at least 2 pull-overs. The length of the parking areas vary, yet most sites are good sized. Most are shady, most are relatively private. There is trash service and toilets. There's no water. There's no WiFi. There's weak reliable Verizon and strong intermittent ATT cell coverage. The CG is close to US-385 with some road noise. For more CG services, consider Chadron SP CG. We camped at Red Cloud in a Motorhome.

Alcova Reservoir, Alcova, Wyoming

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $10.00
Overall Rating:      

We were looking for a place to stay in the general area to break up a long drive. We're self contained and don't use the facilities. We stayed on a weeknight in mid-October in our 25 foot MH. There are 6 CGs at the Alcova Reservoir. We stayed at Black Beach, the first CG on the east side of the reservoir, off County Road 407/Kortes Road. There are 10-12 defined, unnumbered sites on 2 loops. Most are spacious providing privacy and beautiful views of the reservoir. The sites are dirt, surrounded by desert shrubs/bushes. Some are level while others need some leveling. There's not much shade, however, there are picnic shelters at most of the sites. There are trash containers and rest rooms. There's no water. The roads into and around the park are dirt. One section of the road appeared to have rutted deeply after rain/snow, yet was easy to navigate when dry. There's no WiFi. ATT and Verizon cell coverage was good. We had a quiet stay. We camped at Alcova Reservoir in a Motorhome.

Sweetwater Fairgrounds, Rock Springs, Wyoming

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

We were looking for a place to stay in the general area with full hookups to break up a long drive. We're self contained and don't use the facilities except for an occasional shower. We stayed on a weeknight in mid-October in our 25 foot MH. This is a great place for a quick stay when there are no events and would be a nice place to stay for specific events at Sweetwater Event Center. There are 3 areas for camping. We stayed in the only one that's still open and didn't get the name. Of >1,000 campsites, there were 8 other RVs parked during our stay - it was quiet and spacious. When full, the sites would be a bit narrow and dense, yet quite convenient for events. The sites are arrayed across a large gravel parking area, arranged in sets of two with wooden separators. The hookups work well and are heated with a faucet assembly for cold temps. We needed an extension cord and adaptor to reach the 25/50 amp only electric post. We reached the water with our 20 foot hose and septic with our 15 foot waste hose. Caution that some sewer connections are higher from the ground than others. The sites are mostly level, gravel, and there's no shade. The push button showers were clean with ample hot water. Park WiFi is available. ATT data was usable, Verizon was excellent. Register at the yellow house across from the indoor arena. The caretakers were helpful and friendly. We camped at Sweetwater Fairgrounds in a Motorhome.

Young's RV Park, Caliente, Nevada

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

We were looking for a CG in the general area with full hookups after a week of boondocking. We're self contained and don't use the facilities except for an occasional shower. We stayed on a weeknight in early October in our 25 foot MH. This is a very nice RV Park. The owners are friendly and helpful and the park is meticulously maintained. Good-sized sites are lined up diagonally with gravel parking areas and grass between sites. There are separate areas for 30 and 50 amp rigs. All hookups are easy to access and worked well. The sites are mostly level or need a bit of leveling. There are trees to provide shade. A few sites are unshaded. The restroom and shower are dated yet clean with ample hot water. The park WiFi works well. There was good ATT and Verizon coverage. We camped at Young's RV Park in a Motorhome.

Lower Lehman Creek Campground (NPS Campground), Great Basin National Park, Nevada

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $6.00
Overall Rating:      

We were looking for a CG within Great Basin NP that would be convenient to hiking trails in the park. We're self contained and don't use the facilities. We stayed on weeknights in early October in our 25 foot MH. There are 4 non-reservable CGs off the park's scenic drive. We did not see Baker Creek although drove the dirt road which was ok for our rig. We arrived at 1pm on a Thursday and Lower Lehman Creek was full. We found a site at Upper Lehman Creek which filled by early evening. The campsites are arrayed around a relatively tight loop and vary significantly in size and shape. Most have asphalt pads that are back in or drive in. There are 1 or 2 pull throughs. Some have separate tent spaces. Most are shady and are quite private with trees and shrubs between the sites. Most need leveling. Water spigots were turned off for the season due to freezing temps at night. There was weak yet occasionally usable ATT and Verizon cell signal. Wheeler Peak was closed for the season. That CG is similar to the other 2 only with gorgeous views. We camped at Lower Lehman Creek Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

North Pines Campground (NPS Campgroiund), Yosemite National Park, California

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $13.00
Overall Rating:      

We were looking for a campground within Yosemite Valley that would be convenient to hiking and amenities in the valley. We are self contained and don't use the facilities. We stayed on weeknights in late September in our 25 foot MH. There are 3 CGs in the Valley - Upper, Lower and North Pines. They are near each other and from a quick walk through, appear to be quite similar. We stayed at North Pines. This CG is nice and perfectly situated within Yosemite Valley. The sites vary significantly in size and shape. The pads are paved. When making a reservation, check the pad size. Some sites are level and others need leveling. Although they do not provide privacy between sites, the tall pines are beautiful and provide shade much of the day. There is no wifi. There is good Verizon and usable ATT coverage. We camped at North Pines Campground (NPS Campgroiund) in a Motorhome.

Manzanita Lake (NPS Campground), Lassen Volcanic National Park, California

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $12.00
Overall Rating:      

We were looking for a CG in the general area with water and a dump station. We're self contained and don't use the facilities. We stayed on a Saturday night in mid-September. This is a pleasant CG inside the Lassen Volcanic NP. There are 4 loops - A sites were slightly larger, B sites were mostly first come first serve, D Loop was tents only. We didn't see the C Loop. We arrived at 5pm and got the last site in the B loop. There a mix of campsites, some are larger, some are pull through, pull over, back in, some are better for RVs or tents. Most have shade, some more than others. Some have asphalt pads, others are gravel. Most need some leveling. There's a dump station near the entrance with potable water. Neither water hose had a hose fitting, only a cut off hose. There's no wifi. There was a weak Verizon cell signal near the store and dump station, no signal at the campsite. There are kayaks for rent at the CG store. We camped at Manzanita Lake (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

Southwest Walk-in Campground (NPS Campground), Lassen Volcanic National Park, California

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $8.00
Overall Rating:      

We were looking for a place to stay in or near Lassen Volcanic NP that would be convenient to hiking. We're self contained and don't use the facilities. We stayed on a Friday night in mid-September in our 25 foot MH. This is a very convenient location. The tent only CG is at the east end of the Visitor Center parking lot. RVs are allowed to park overnight in center section of the parking lot. There were 4 other RVs overnighting. The fee is $16/$8 senior. It is literally parking overnight in a parking lot with a rest room. Most spaces require some leveling. There are a few trees and not much shade in the RV parking lot. (Tent sites were in the trees.) There's a water spigot available 24/7 at the Visitor Center. There's weak, slow wifi available in the Visitor Center. There's occasionally usable ATT and Verizon cell coverage in the parking lot. This camp loses a star for value - high rate for a parking lot with no services - and gains a star for location - 1/4 mile from the trailhead and at Visitor Center. We camped at Southwest Walk-in Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

Sonoma Coast State Beach Bodega Dunes, Bodega Bay, California

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $33.00
Overall Rating:      

We were looking for a CG on or near the coast with cell service so we could escape the heat of the Central Valley and catch up on news, correspondence, blogs, etc. We're self contained and don't use the facilities. We stayed on week nights in mid-September in our 25 foot MH. This is a pleasant CG nestled in the sand dunes and near the Pacific. We arrived at noon and found about half the sites were available and they were mostly filled by evening. There are 3 loops, 1 upper and 2 lower - we stayed in the lower which is closer to the dunes. The sites are mostly good sized, with those on the outer perimeter slightly larger. Most had paved, sand covered pads. There was a mix of sun and shade, some were more private than others. Most needed some leveling. All sites are primitive with water available at several spigots. There's a dump station near the entrance. There's no wifi. There's good ATT and Verizon coverage. The CG is clean and well maintained. The host was helpful and friendly. We camped at Sonoma Coast State Beach Bodega Dunes in a Motorhome.

There are several social trails from the CG leading to a trail network throughout the dunes and to the beach. There's also a paved road to South Salmon Creek Beach. Although the beach is walkable, signs suggest no swimming due to hazards. The CG is 1.5 miles to the town of Bodega Bay, although there's no sidewalk and the road is narrow. There are a few gift shops and a convenience store in town.

We were looking for a place to stay in the general area to visit family in Orangevale. We're self contained and don't use the facilities. We stayed on a Friday night in early September in our 25 foot MH. This is a nice urban CG right on Folsom Lake and very convenient to Orangevale and Folsom. The CG has 2 loops. One is set up for RVs and has water and electric. The sites appear to be spread out and relatively open. The other Loop is primitive and geared towards tents, although smaller RVs are ok for some sites. We stayed in the latter. We arrived at 5pm on a Friday and got the last site with a pad that fit our RV. The sites in the primitive section were pleasantly arrayed in clusters among trees, had a mix of sun and shade and most were good sized. The sites on the outside were slightly larger and more private. Most need a bit of leveling. There's no wifi. There was good ATT and Verizon coverage. We had a quiet stay.

We were looking for a place to stay in the general area to break up a long drive. We're self contained and don't use the facilities. We stayed on a weeknight in September in our 25 foot MH. This is a nice, free primitive CG with great views. The road in and main road through the CG are paved. The main road ends at a boat launch. There are at least 10 sites with picnic tables/fire pits and several others without. The sites are a mix off large and small, shady and full sun, most need a little leveling. Some are more private than others. The sites closest to the lake are largest. The roads inside the campground are dirt and some have tight turns. There are water spigots which we did not use. We saw police drive through once during the evening. A maintenance person did some clean up in the morning. It was a quiet night. There's good Verizon and usable ATT coverage.

Cape Blanco State Park, Port Orford, Oregon

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $22.00
Overall Rating:      

We were looking for a CG that would provide views of the ocean as well as hiking trails. We're self contained and don't use the facilities except for an occasional shower. We stayed weeknights in late August in our 25 foot MH.

This is a gorgeous CG on a bluff 240 feet above sea level. There are sites along the bluff with nice ocean views through the trees. Site A40 does not have a view, however, is very private and across the road from the trail to an overlook, beach, and trail system.

Most of the sites are good sized with level asphalt pads. The CG map lists pad size for each site and they range from 30-80 feet. Most have trees for shade and privacy. The shower is clean with push button operation and hot water. The dump station is out of commission for the foreseeable future. Campers may use the dump station at any other OR State Park CG for free after a stay at Cape Blanco.

There's no wifi. There's good Verizon and ATT coverage. The CG is clean and well maintained. The hosts are friendly and helpful. We camped at Cape Blanco State Park in a Motorhome.
