Wheeler Peak Campground (NPS Campground), Great Basin National Park, Nevada

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $12.00
Overall Rating:      

A beautiful campground at 10,000 feet with beautiful views in some sites of the surrounding mountains. Lots of trees provide shade and protection. If you can find a spot around the meadow, this is a great spot for sunset. It's also worth going out at night to see the stars! This is a rustic campground with pit toilets and water pumps scattered randomly. No electricity, no hookups. But I've always wanted to stay here for the beauty and the easy access to great mountain trails and Lehman Caves. Make sure to bring with you all the supplies and food you need, nearest store is all the way down the mountain and out of the park in Baker, NV. Bring firewood; you'll be happy to have a fire in the chilly evenings and mornings. This is a first come, first serve campground. We arrived around noon and there was only one spot left! Go up early, especially on weekends. Many people stay nearby and then come up early in the morning to get a spot at this coveted location. You pay at a kiosk and it is only $12. We were there on a Friday night and it was busy. There was a large family reunion all around us, but they had everyone settled in and quiet by 10:00 p.m. Had a very quiet and restful night. We camped at Wheeler Peak Campground (NPS Campground) in a Tent Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Don't miss the Bristlecone Pine trail and the Alpine Lakes loop which begin in the campground. If you are an experienced hiker, you can do the Wheeler Peak trail (13,000 feet). Also make sure to see Lehman Caves. They are some of the most beautiful caves I have ever seen. Make sure to make reservations ahead online or you may not get in.

Beaver KOA, Beaver, Utah

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $44.00
Overall Rating:      

Our favorite KOA of our trip! What a beautiful park with pretty views of farm fields and surrounding mountains. Very quiet, mostly adult. Spacious sites. My cousin stayed in a lovely cabin, right across from our site. She loved the pool which she pretty much had to herself. Lots of large shade trees make this a nice spot in the summer. We enjoyed our dinner and wine sitting out under the trees at our picnic table. Bathrooms are clean and decorated with inspirational art work, and an orchid, of all things! Staff is friendly and helpful. Nice store. Good dishwashing set up. We camped at Beaver KOA in a Tent Trailer.

This was a pass through between Bryce Canyon National Park and Great Basin National Park. Great spot to overnight between the two! Bought our wood for Great Basin which has no facilities.

Ruby's Inn RV Park and Campground, Bryce Canyon, Utah

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

This park is right outside Bryce Canyon. It is very busy because of this, so a bit more crowded than we are used to. There was also a lot more use of the bathrooms by large groups (particularly teens). We have a teardrop, so we rely on the bathrooms more than most RVers do. But I must say they were clean despite the usage and I only had to wait about 5 minutes for a shower. They have a pool (but too many kids for my cousin to use it). They also have an amazing store with everything you might need! My cousin stayed in a tipi, which was very cool! It had a nice shady picnic table under some trees, so we hung out there with her for dinner. Then we pulled into our spot which was just a little ways up a hill. Spaces are very close and our power box didn't work, so we plugged into the neighbors... Camp was noisier into the night than I'd experienced before. Finally got quiet around 11:00. We camped at Ruby's Inn RV Park and Campground in a Tent Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

See Bryce Canyon National Park, which is amazing! Don't take your RV inside though. Just up the road from Ruby's Inn RV Park is the parking area for the shuttles, including RV parking. Bryce is best seen by using the shuttles which run frequently and are easy to get on and off of at the sights you want to see. Do the Navajo/Queens Garden Trail--make sure you go down the Navajo and up the Queens Garden... Bring your camera! Also some water--trail is steep and it can be hot.

Sandcreek RV Park and Campground, Torrey, Utah

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

What a backdrop this place has! Gorgeous red rock cliffs on one side, similar to what you find inside Capitol Reef National Par, which is only a few miles up the road. We stayed here as part of a visit to the Park. My cousin rented one of the cabins, which was rustic, but well comfortable and cool. They gave us a space for our teardrop nearby. We were also near the bathrooms, which were clean. Owners live onsite. We dropped the trailer so we could more easily explore the park. Had a little trouble getting it back on the hitch because site was in deep gravel and we couldn't get purchase with the wheel. If you drop here, you may want to make sure you use a block. This is a nice place to stay and less crowded than the campground inside the park. We camped at Sandcreek RV Park and Campground in a Tent Trailer.

Big Woods Lake Campground, Cedar Falls, Iowa

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

What a great find this place was! I discovered it on RV Park Reviews. It is off in the middle of the cornfields of Iowa and you are sure you must be lost, but then you turn off into a small neighborhood and at the end is a big lake with a campground. Many of the sites have a lovely view and there are cabins for rent as well. There is not a host onsite, so payment is on the honor system at a kiosk. Our site overlooked the lake and we watched a beautiful sunset from the picnic table over dinner and wine. Then the fire flies came out, which was charming! I hadn't seen those in years! Later quite the thunderstorm came up, but the gravel on the site drained well and we had no issues pulling out in the morning. The bathrooms are large and private, concrete floors and minimal, but clean. The wifi was the best we had the whole trip. Lovely spot if you are passing through, but I could have stayed another day too. We camped at Big Woods Lake Campground in a Tent Trailer.

Walk the Big Woods Lake Loop which circles the lake and can be accessed from the campground easily. It's a couple of miles around and beautiful! You see everything from lake to woods to meadows of wildflowers. The morning was cool after the rain and it was a lovely stroll before we left for the day.

Moonlight Bay Resort & Campground, Walker, Minnesota

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $44.00
Overall Rating:      

What a pretty spot on Leech Lake! We could see the lake from our site and it was an easy walk down to the docks. We were lucky to have cool weather and no bugs, so we could sit out on the dock for an hour in the evening and watch the boaters and Sea-Doos. We never even used any bug spray! It was in the high 70's and lovely.

We arrived in time for the 4th of July golf cart parade, which was a hoot to watch! This park has a number of permanent RV's placed on foundations and it is clear that many people spend most of their summers here. Very family friendly atmosphere. It is near a golf course, so lots of golf carts. Nice lodge to hang out in overlooking the lake. I think they also served food. It was a little noisy at night, mostly due to 4th celebrations and some fire works--one drunk guy singing. But I think that was unusual. Sites are close together and campground is very full during the 4th. But it was comfortable and had a very friendly feel to it. We camped at Moonlight Bay Resort & Campground in a Tent Trailer.

Badlands / White River KOA, Interior, South Dakota

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $38.00
Overall Rating:      

This was a beautiful park on the White River near the Badlands Interior entrance. You went a few miles down a road and then dropped down into river bottom with lots of large Cottonwoods. Very shady and cool, which is a rare find in the Badlands! Excellent spot to access the park. Quiet, even though it was busy. Clean bathrooms and showers. Nice setup to do dishes outside. We camped at Badlands / White River KOA in a Tent Trailer.

Broken Arrow Campground, Custer, South Dakota

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $33.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a horse camp that backs up to national forest trails. I love horses, so being able to camp among them in our teardrop was awesome! I got my horse fix in for sure. The bathrooms were beautiful with slate floors and wonderful pine trim. They were decorated in everything horse and were immaculate. Individual shower stalls with good water pressure and plenty of hot water. Lots of counter space and had the place to myself in the morning.

Nice grounds with lots of grass and some trees. There is a pretty trail up the ridge behind the campground with great views of the Black Hills. Horses and dogs were quiet during the night. The usual stirring in the morning when the riders were getting up to go out. Our neighbors were friendly and we had a nice chat about their horses and upcoming rides.

Campground is not far from Crazy Horse Memorial, Mt. Rushmore and Custer State Park. Well located for visiting the Black Hills area. We camped at Broken Arrow Campground in a Tent Trailer.

River's Edge RV & Cabins Resort, Casper, Wyoming

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $36.00
Overall Rating:      

RV park right on the Platte River. Owners are very nice and checked in on us during our stay. Put us next to another teardrop that was homemade, so it was fun for us to share about our teardrop adventures! Bathrooms are very new, clean, and some offer private showers. Nice rec room available. Sites are gravel and fairly close together. Limited shade. There was a bench set up overlooking the river and we took advantage of that for our evening glass of wine. In the morning we rolled out our yoga mats under a big cottonwood tree and did yoga next to the river. Great place to stay on your way through Wyoming. There are a number of permanent residents here who are friendly and helpful. We camped at River's Edge RV & Cabins Resort in a Tent Trailer.

Rendezvous Beach Bear Lake State Park, Garden City, Utah

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $36.00
Overall Rating:      

What a pretty spot! We were surprised by what a lovely view the park had of the lake and the farm fields behind. We had a nice spot overlooking the lake and the picnic table was shaded which was nice. They put us close to the bathroom since we have a teardrop. The camp host told us about a nest of bald eagles at the end of the park and that the eaglets were about to fledge. It was amazing to see them! One flew up onto another branch near his mother while we were watching. The other had flown into another tree already and the third had fledged the day before. What a rare opportunity! I will also always remember seeing the whole Milky Way when I got up to use the bathroom in the middle of the night. Restrooms were clean and showers were in private, individual rooms and were clean. We camped at Rendezvous Beach Bear Lake State Park in a Tent Trailer.
