Ancient Cedars Mesa Verde RV Park, Mancos, Colorado

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

Typically we stay in State Parks, so to stay at this RV resort was a real treat! Especially for the kids who enjoyed the WiFi and swimming pool. They begged to stay another day!

The laundry facility was nice and convenient.

Our family wanted to visit the 4 corners on our first night there and I asked for advice from the owners who didn't seem to know what time they closed.

The next morning - checkout was at 11am-which seems a little ridiculous to me- but sure enough at 11am another camper was waiting for our site. I still had laundry to finish, I felt rushed out. We camped at Ancient Cedars Mesa Verde RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Mesa Verde National Park was a bit frustrating. You can't see any of the ruins (up close) with out taking a tour $ and the tours are only scheduled at certain times throughout the day. we ended up leaving after 2 hours of just driving through the park.

Fishing Bridge Campground (Concessionaire Operated), Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $57.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed in 8 different parks on our 2 week vacation- seeing different scenery in SD, WY and CO. This park was the most expensive and the worst by far. The sites were crammed together, back-to-back and side by side. We had no room. No picnic table, no fire ring. And showers cost extra $4 per person. Backing in to the too-small-site was a real challenge. The benefit to staying at Fishing Bridge is it's location. If you stay anywhere outside of the park plan to add 1- 1.5 hrs travel time everyday. We camped at Fishing Bridge Campground (Concessionaire Operated) in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Yellowstone is overwhelmingly huge and I do not think that the Park Service did a good job at letting the visitors know what was available to do. Research exactly what you want to see before you go or you will waste a lot of time just driving around. We did end up doing a horseback trail ride through Yellowstone and that was fun and worth the $$. We also drove into Cody to see the nightly rodeo. It was a long late night when we drove back (dark winding roads).

Custer State Park - Game Lodge Campground, Custer, South Dakota

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $28.00
Overall Rating:

This was an excellent state park. Location of the Game Lodge was convenient to Mt. Rushmore. We saw many wildlife throughout the park (Buffalo right in our campground!) So we did not see the need to pay money to go on the Wildlife loop. Sites were spacious and neighbors were friendly. There was no water nearby, which we did not notice until after we had unhooked. Ugh! Rookie mistake. Laundry facilities were very convenient and the bath house was clean and well maintained. We camped at Custer State Park - Game Lodge Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

There were activities planned in and around the park- but we just followed our own plans. The Park was over an hour drive to Sioux City and also to Hot Springs, but the Hot Springs drive was scenic and we enjoyed seeing many wildlife on that trip. We did spend a day at Evan's Plunge natural hot spring waterpark and that was a fun day for the kids. Our family enjoyed spending the day at Sylvan lake where we hiked, fished and kayaked. We also enjoyed Needles highway.

Wilson Island Recreation Area, Missouri Valley, Iowa

Date of Stay: May, 2016 - $28.00
Overall Rating:

Our family stayed for 2 nights over Memorial Day weekend. Required to pay for 3 nights. Campsites were spacious and level. The proximity to the river was enjoyable. Campground neighbors were friendly and helpful. Firewood was available and cheap. We were very pleased with our stay and would return.

I noticed signs that said no tents on RV sites. I thought that was weird because we often have a "kids tent" next to our trailer. I noticed a few tents though- so it might not be enforced, but you should probably ask about this if it is an issue for you. We camped at Wilson Island Recreation Area in a Travel Trailer.
