Ridgway State Park, Ridgway, Colorado

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

We were looking for a CG close to Telluride that had electric sites (morning temps below freezing for several days in a row). We're self-contained and don't use the facilities. We stayed on weeknights in mid-October in our 25 foot MH. This is a very nice CG about an hour from Telluride. Ridgway SP has 3 camping areas: Pa-Co-Chu-Puk CG with FHU at the Pa-Co-Chu-Puk recreation site and Elk Ridge CG and Dakota Terraces CG, both electric only, at the Dutch Charlie recreation site 3.5 miles south. The sites in Dakota Terrace are arrayed in a meadow in full sun with patio covers over picnic tables for shade. They are closer to the highway with some road noise. The sites in Elk Ridge are in a pinion pine/juniper forest with shade and privacy and no road noise. We stayed in Elk Ridge. The sites are spacious with a mix of pull-ins and back-ins. All are asphalt, some are level while others require leveling. Some have more shade than others and some have views of the reservoir or mountains. There are ample water spigots throughout. There's a dump station with rinse and potable water near the entrance. Note the water at the dump station may be shut off in the event of below freezing weather with water available to fill tanks at the spigots. There's no wifi. There's good ATT and Verizon cell service. Note the A loop of the Dakota Terrace is open year round. The remainder of the loops in Dakota and Elk Ridge begin to close based on weather. There's an extra $7 day fee for those without a CO SP pass. We camped at Ridgway State Park in a Motorhome.

South Rim (NPS Campground), Black Canyon Gunnison Nat'l Park, Colorado

Date of Stay: October, 2018 - $10.00
Overall Rating:

We were looking for a CG that would be convenient to exploring the Black Canyon of the Gunnison NP and would have electric since morning temps were forecasted to be in the 20's. We're self-contained and don't use the facilities. We stayed mid-week in mid-October in our 25 foot MH. This is a pleasant campground near the Visitor Center and central to all South Rim activity. There are 3 loops in a forest of tall shrubs. Sites are similar in each loop. B loop has electric. Loop C is first come first serve. Water is not available after temps drop below freezing. Limited water is available in summer - plan to arrive with water. There is no dump station. There is one in Montrose which we did not use. We stayed in loop B. Most of the sites are back in with a few pull overs. The CG map denotes S, M and L sites. Sites are dirt and most need some leveling. The shrubs provide some privacy. There's no wifi and no cell coverage in the CG. The nearest ATT and Verizon signals are at Sunset View and along HYY 347. We camped at South Rim (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

Colorado National Monument - Saddlehorn Campground, Fruita, Colorado

Date of Stay: October, 2018 - $10.00
Overall Rating:

We were looking for a place to stay that would be convenient to the hiking trails within the Colorado National Monument. We're self-contained and don't use the facilities. We stayed for 5 days, including a weekend, in early October in our 25 foot MH. This CG is nicely situated near the western edge of The Monument and near the Visitor Center. Note there are tunnels on the road to the CG - side heights are 10'6", center heights are 16' and lanes are 20' wide. There are 3 loops within a pinyon pine/juniper forest. We stayed in the A loop. The C loop is the original campground with smaller sites (20 foot max) in a denser forest affording greater privacy. Loops A and B include a mix of back-in sites and pull overs. In most yet not all cases, the pull overs are spaced to allow for some privacy despite being parked on the side of the loop road. Some sites have views of the Grand Valley below the rim. The sites vary in size from longer and skinny to short and wide. Some are better for tents while others are better for RVs. All sites were gravel and most need some leveling. There are no hookups. Water is available for jugs near the restrooms and not available to fill an RV. There's no dump station at the CG. There's a free dump station with rinse and potable water at the Colorado Welcome Center at the intersection of I-70 and SR340. (Note: GPS may take you to the nearby Colorado State Park Welcome Center which is not free.) There's no wifi. We had good ATT and Verizon coverage. We arrived on a Wednesday afternoon without reservations and were able to get a walk-in site. All sites in loop B and some of A can be reserved with the rest available for walk-ins. (Don't know about loop C.) We camped at Colorado National Monument - Saddlehorn Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

The Monument Visitor Center is a short walk from the campground and the people there are quite helpful. The 23-mile Rim Rock Drive includes 19 overlooks with views into the canyons. It can be combined with SR340 for a 30-mile circuit. There are many short or longer hiking trails to choose from including those that descend into the canyons or climb ridges. All services are available in Fruita or Grand Junction.

Many Glacier Campground (NPS Campground), Glacier National Park, Montana

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $10.00
Overall Rating:

We were looking for a CG that would be convenient to hiking trails in the Many Glacier area. We're self-contained and don't use the facilities. We stayed for 5 days, including a weekend, in late September in our 25 foot MH. This is a nice CG, walking distance to most of the trailheads in Many Glacier. Late season rates and services were in effect. All sites at this time are first come first serve. We arrived early afternoon on a Thursday and the CG was about half occupied, and was nearly full by the end of the day. Most of the sites were relatively small, dirt, and needed some leveling. Most were shaded and relatively private. We selected site 77. It was the least private site, yet the most sunny. For this visit, we preferred access to solar over privacy as it was in the low 30s in the morning. There were restrooms, dumpsters, recycling containers and bear boxes throughout the CG. There was a dump station and potable water near the entrance. Note dump/water close in late September when the CG shifts to primitive mode. Check website for dates if visiting late (or early). There's no ATT or Verizon cell coverage. Dump station with rinse and potable water near entrance. We camped at Many Glacier Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

Conestoga Campground / Smith River Valley, White Sulphur Springs, Montana

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $18.00
Overall Rating:

We were looking for a full service CG in the general area to refresh tanks, shower and do laundry after 2 weeks of boondocking. We're self-contained and don't use the facilities except for an occasional shower. We stayed on a weeknight in late September in our 25 foot MH. This is a nice, meticulously maintained, full service CG. The staff was helpful and friendly. The gravel sites are lined up in a large, flat grassy field with mountain views in all directions. The grounds are nicely landscaped although there are no trees for shade/privacy. All sites are level, gravel and in full sun. In late September, this was an advantage as morning temps were in the low 30's. There's a mix of sites with FHU or electric/water. The showers were clean with ample hot water and water pressure. The laundry facility was clean with working washers/dryers. CG wifi was good. There was good Verizon and ATT cell service. We camped at Conestoga Campground / Smith River Valley in a Motorhome.

St. Mary Campground (NPS Campground), Glacier National Park, Montana

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $5.00
Overall Rating:

We were looking for a CG near Glacier National Park where we could stop for 1 night and have cell coverage. We're self-contained and don't use the facilities. We stayed 1 week night in late September in our 25 foot MH. This is a very nice CG. It was in 'primitive' mode and price during our stay - only sites in C loop were open with no water, no dump, no rest rooms. The sites are arrayed around a large circle. All are smaller pull through's. About 2/3 are in trees with shade and a bit of privacy while 1/3 are on a hill in the open with full sun and views. Most sites are gravel and need some leveling. We selected site 106. It wasn't the most private, however, had full sun for solar and a beautiful view. It was quite cold (30's in the am) - we prioritized solar over privacy. There was a good Verizon cell signal and no ATT signal. We arrived at lunchtime and had no difficulty finding a site. The CG was half full in the evening. We camped at St. Mary Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

Townsite Campground (Parks Canada), Waterton Lakes National Park, Alberta

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $26.00
Overall Rating:

We were looking for a CG that would be convenient to the town of Waterton and hiking in Waterton NP. We're self-contained and don't use the facilities except for an occasional shower. We stayed in mid-September in our 8 metre (25 foot) MH. This is a beautiful and nicely situated CG. There are 8 loops and each is different. B and H were closed for renovation. A is mostly full hookups (some are not) with a few pull throughs. C, D, E and F are primitive (no hookups). G is electric only. Although there are views throughout the CG, some of the sites in G are quite near Waterton Lake with gorgeous views. We stayed in loop G. The sites are arrayed in an open grassy field with a few trees. Although there're no trees/shrubbery for privacy, the sites are generously sized. The sites are gravel, most are level. The washroom is clean and heated and includes good-sized, push-button showers with ample hot water and water pressure. There was good ATT coverage while roaming on Rogers or Bell service and good Verizon while roaming on Telus. Our visit was one year after the 2017 Kenow wildfire. Some sections of the park remain closed for clean up, road clearing and hiking trail repair. Roads and trails are re-opening as work is complete and several trails re-opened during our visit. Although the fire burned close to the town of Waterton, the town was spared and shops, restaurants, services, boats cruises were operational. Dump station with water in CG. We camped at Townsite Campground (Parks Canada) in a Motorhome.

The temporary visitor center is in town and quite helpful with up to the minute info on trail conditions/openings. All of the shorter trails near town are open. The Lakeside Trail was open to the US border. The Bertha Lake Trail (with shorter options to a view point and Bertha Falls) was beautiful. The Red Rocks Parkway is partially re-opened to bicycles and hikers.

Lake Louise Trailer Campground - Electric Hookups (Parks Canada), Banff National Park, Alberta

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

We were looking for a CG with electric that would be convenient to exploring the northern section of Banff NP. We're self-contained and don't use the facilities except for an occasional shower. We stayed a week in mid-September in our 8 metre (25 foot) MH. (It snowed during our stay.) This CG is conveniently located as a base to explore the northern section of Banff NP and to access the Lake Louise area. It's no more convenient than other CGs in the area to visit Moraine Lake area, as the only access is via shuttle from an overflow parking area 5 km (3 mi) south of the CG on the TCH. Most of the sites in the CG are quite long and designed for 2 RVs side by side with electric post, table and (some sites) fire pits on either side. The long double wide sites are separated by trees and shrubs for some privacy. Two smaller rigs/class C's can stagger and maintain some privacy. Two larger rigs may have difficulty opening slides/awnings. The sites are electric only. There are a few single RV sites (not noted on the online reservation form). Most sites are gravel, may need a bit of leveling and are mostly shaded. There are washrooms with hot water throughout the CG. There's one shower room with 5 male and 5 female showers for the whole CG with lines in the morning and early evening. (We chose to shower at different times.) The showers were clean with ample hot water and water pressure. They could use a shelf or additional hooks. With only 1 hook, clothes and towels had to be hung over the door. There was good ATT and Verizon cell coverage while roaming on Rogers service. We arrived without reservations at a busy time and were able to get open sites by moving to a different site every day. This was not a problem for us. Of the 4 sites, 47 was our favorite. Note the Canadian Pacific Railway runs quite close to the park with trains day and night. We camped at Lake Louise Trailer Campground - Electric Hookups (Parks Canada) in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

The hamlet of Lake Louise is a 15-minute walk from the CG. There are

limited services. The NP visitor center is helpful and includes an

interpretive center. There's a shuttle stop near the visitor center to get

to Lake Louise or the overflow parking lot to get to Lake Moraine. The Icefields Parkway is just north of Lake Louise. The town of Banff with full services is an hour south. Hiking near Lake Louise is superb, yet you need to do some planning to get to certain trailheads.

We were looking for a CG that would be convenient to hiking in the northern section of Kootenay National Park. We're self-contained and don't use the facilities. We stayed for a week in August/September, including Labor Day weekend in our 8 metre (25 foot) MH. This is a nice CG, quite convenient to many hiking trails. The sites are dirt, most need some leveling. Most sites are shaded with trees, there were a few on the perimeter in loops C, H, and J with sun (and views). The trees and situating of the sites makes them relatively private. All sites are primitive (no hookups). Dump station with potable water near J loop. There are service areas between the loops with outdoor kitchens, washrooms w/ flush toilets and firewood (fee for permit). There's water throughout the park and a dump station with potable water near loop J. There's no cell service. There is cell service in 2 parking lots in Castle Junction, 10 minutes east.

Sites on the lake are for tents only. There's a variety of types of sites, elec only, full hook up, etc. There's a dump station with potable water near the entrance.

We were looking for a place to stay that would be convenient to hiking trails in Yoho National Park. We're self-contained and don't use the facilities. We stayed a week in mid-August in our 8 metre (25 foot) motorhome. This is an interesting, small campground. All sites are primitive/no hookups. The sites are a variety of sizes and shapes. Most are level or nearly so and gravel. Some are full sun while others are mostly shaded. Sites in the center of the campground are open and less private. Those along the right side of the loop as you drive in have more privacy and more shade. Campfires are not allowed. There is potable water near the washrooms. There's a dump station with rinse and potable water just outside the campground. There's good AT&T service while roaming on Bell and usable Verizon while roaming on Telus. All sites are first-come first-serve. The sites filled by early afternoon, earlier after the long weekend. There is overflow parking for those who arrive when the campground is full for ~$8/night. There is significant road and train noise at this campground, as it is within site of the TCH and CPR. Although it lost a star for the noise, it gained one for price and convenience of location.

We were looking for a place to stay that would be convenient to explore the northern part of Jasper National Park. We're self-contained and don't use the facilities except for an occasional shower. We stayed for a week in early August in our 8 metre (25 foot) MH. This is a very nice, primitive (no hookups) campground quite conveniently located to Jasper, Miette Hot Springs and Maligne Canyon. There are 63 sites in the CG, all first come, first served. The sites are relatively small (they suggest MH and trailers <27 feet which seems appropriate), adequately spaced, mostly level gravel and mostly shaded. A few are on the river with nice views. There are pit toilets throughout. A fire permit and wood are available for $7/day. There is no electric and no dump. There's a spigot for water (not RV filling). There are 2 free dump stations with potable water (no rinse water) in Jasper 18 km (11 miles) from CG. We had usable ATT cell service with an antenna while roaming on Rogers and no Verizon service at the campground. There a train that runs at night in the distance. There is also an overflow camping area ~300 m (~0.25 mi) beyond Snaring CG which is also very nice and convenient. The overflow area is also primitive (same description as Snaring CG, including pit toilets, but no water spigots), is big rig compatible and has beautiful views. There's a large field for random parking and a section with dirt roads and pull-ins for more private sites. Campfires are not allowed. Water spigots are available at Snaring CG. The overflow area is closer to the train. Note that Whistlers CG (780 sites) will be closed for renovations during 2019 so fewer total sites will be available in the park that summer. We camped at Snaring Campground in a Motorhome.

The push button showers were clean with ample hot water and water pressure. There was good ATT and Verizon cell coverage while roaming on Bell. We camped at Twin Falls Gorge Territorial Park in a Motorhome.
