Colorado National Monument - Saddlehorn Campground, Fruita, Colorado

Date of Stay: October, 2016 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

We came on a Thursday. There was road construction past the welcome center right near the entrance to the park but we were waved through it. I will not repeat what almost everyone has said about the tunnel because we did not find it to be true. Our motor home is over 11 feet high and the usual width, no problem. We didn't worry about the heighth of it at all. Gorgeous views on the way to the campground. There is a visitor center for the park near the campground. There are some short hikes from there. There are no hikes from the campground itself. You will need to bike or drive to hikes that are longer.

Our site was number 43 and it was a pull through. The nice thing about it was it was set back from the road with more privacy than others. A lot of the so called sites are tiny widenings in the road barely big enough for small trailers. Another thing about the park is that those over 62 get it half price at $10.00. This is a huge discount. We didn't qualify for it and gladly paid. But there is no electric or sewer so

perhaps $20.00 is steep. The park filled up with free loaders after dark who pulled out before light.

The sites have fire rings but you can only use charcoal. My husband bought charcoal from the camp host and she told him about the Pinon nuts in the area. Seemed friendly. We took a nap in the afternoon and there was a pounding and yelling at our door which woke us up. It was the camp host who asked us if we had found any thing on our site when we moved in. She never apologized for waking us or intruding. Very weird. It's a beautiful park but the people running it are not that considerate. We had a problem about 7 years ago with a ranger coming up while we were still in our car but parked and telling us we had better not let our dogs on the trails. So because of this later incidence with the camp host we will not be back. We camped at Colorado National Monument - Saddlehorn Campground in a Motorhome.

Ponderosa Campground, Cody, Wyoming

Date of Stay: October, 2016 - $43.00
Overall Rating:

We pulled in late on a Sunday and there were plenty of spots. At the office it says on a sign on the door to come on back in the morning to pay. The office is a large log building, very attractive in its own right. Seemed

like a down to earth folksy place.

We set up in a pull thru site and as we were setting up my husband said

he thought some one had driven by

and marked that we were there.

We had full hookups at Ponderosa and there was a cable hookup but we

don't watch TV while travelling, perhaps in the future. It is right in

town and convenient to businesses.

We had to leave fairly early the next morning but later than 9 a.m. so we could swing by the office. When we opened the door to our rv the next morning we found a note saying

Howdy please stop by the office. When my husband got in the office

he found that they already had our license plate number. So much for the folksiness and suggesting they trust people to stop by the office and pay. They don't.

Our site was near the dumpsters and there was 2 trucks there early the next morning. We camped at Ponderosa Campground in a Motorhome.

Boysen State Park, Shoshoni, Wyoming

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

We stayed in October and there was no camp host. We did not have trouble seeing the campgrounds or the signage, there is an upper and a lower. We camped in the lower. It was nearer the river and had a great view of the canyon wall. There was only one other camper, a small travel trailer.

There is nothing here in the way of hookups. We did not use the outdoor toilet. We stayed so my husband could fish the next morning. He was told by another fisherman that the key to the canyon is a red copper John fly. The water is clear and beautiful.

The stars were magnificent. We don't watch TV when we are camping and do not care about reception.

Still, it's pricey because you basically get what you would get in the national forest. But you have to put up with big trucks and the trains that come through the tunnel. One reviewer said the trucks stop at 8p.m. They do not. I was up way past 10 p.m and they just kept coming. It's not worth the price. I don't even know if anyone is collecting the fee but we paid anyway. We camped at Boysen State Park in a Motorhome.

This isn't far from Thermopolis. Try the fishing for trout. Most beautiful place to fly fish. Don't expect typical a campground.

Maumee Bay State Park, Oregon, Ohio

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

We were here on a Thursday right before Labor Day weekend. Although we were told they were booked solid for the weekend, there was plenty of spaces on Thursday. This is a very nice park and we were glad to find it on our way home from Vermont. It is a little ways off I-90 but worth the trip. The spaces are all very spacious, ours was near a yurt and cabins and they were unoccupied so we had the total area to ourselves. The bike path was nearby and no one else was on it. We biked down to Lake Erie where there is a beach. There is some rugged areas there with rocks and the water looked deep and it was windy. I think children should always be accompanied by adults at this beach. The bike path lines around a few small ponds and some tree-lined areas and is very pleasant. We can't find anything to complain about at this park. We camped at Maumee Bay State Park in a Motorhome.

North Beach Campground, Burlington, Vermont

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed here for seven days to visit family in Vermont. Although we have a motorhome we were put in a site near tents and small travel trailers. This was because they had no other sites available for us. We had only electricity and water at the first site, which was mostly dirt with a small amount of gravel. After the weekend we were able to move to a much nicer site site 115 with full hookups, more private, and up against the trees away from everyone. There are also other sites with full hookups near the main gate in the single digits, but all the traffic flows past them. The site location had a little grass and was quite unlevel. There are no pads in the park.

We were here seven days and got to know the park and the area very well. The bathrooms are clean daily but not well. The light fixtures are filthy and full of bugs. The sink in back of the restrooms where you wash your dishes had many spiders hanging over them, but when I mentioned it to the office they quickly cleaned it. The staff in the office is mostly college kids and sometimes they get the job done and sometimes they don't.

The beach is well-groomed and well taken care of, there is no trash, it is clean and there are outdoor showers as well as bathrooms. The bike path is near the campground but it is unlike any I have seen in the sense that people don't think that they have to move over for bikers. This is definitely a bike path not a pedestrian Trail. I am used to fast paced bike paths, this is not one, so just be prepared for a slow pace. We camped at North Beach Campground in a Motorhome.

West Lake Park, Summit Campground, Davenport, Iowa

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

We were driving across country on our way to Vermont and saw kayakers in a lake near the Interstate. Weary from many miles, we wanted to stop and see if we could soon be enjoying the water and in no time, we were. It was mid week and the different campground areas were only sparsely inhabited. It was easy to find a great spot. We had water and electricity. The campground is clean and spacious.

We kayaked for an hour and loved it. We are whitewater kayakers and this was lake kayaking but what a respite from the long hours driving. They have paddleboats and kayaks and a tandem kayak will be coming soon. Life jackets are provided. We biked to the lake from our campsite. We loved it here. We camped at West Lake Park, Summit Campground in a Motorhome.

Lake Pueblo State Park, Pueblo, Colorado

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $34.00
Overall Rating:

We pulled in around 5 on a Thursday. There were a lot of spaces available on a hot July day. Our space had two large trees which provided shade over our camper but that is rare. We hooked up to electricity but no sewer was available.

The lake was beautiful and calm and still, there was hardly any boats on it. I was longing for a boat of my own. There is a trail that goes around the lake if you just want a nice walk. We were interested in archery range because it was mentioned in another review but this is only a practice range with a few targets.

The bathroom close to us was large with a shower, but there were quite a few bugs in it, gnats and silverfish. There was a flush toilet, so I don't really understand why our side didn't have sewer.

The tent pads in the area are very nice, level, elevated, gravel with good drainage.for a barren type of environment, they have done well to create a nice atmosphere, trees have been planted and the sites are spread out and clean. We camped at Lake Pueblo State Park in a Motorhome.

Curt Gowdy State Park, Cheyenne, Wyoming

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

We stayed here on a Saturday in July without a reservation. The ranger said that we would be able to find a space because there was a fire ban. We stayed in our 25 foot motorhome and dry camped. We found a nice site overlooking the lake. The roads are gravel but our site was fairly flat. It was just a few steps down to the lake. The lake was full of boats, paddle boards and kayakers. You can rent a canoe for $20. The archery range is amazing and one of the best we have ever seen, but it is not excessively challenging. Even the beginner has a chance on this range as the targets are large and the distance to the targets well marked. However, need to do some hiking and bring some water. The sunsets over the lake are amazing. This park is best for the active RVer. We camped at Curt Gowdy State Park in a Motorhome.
