Outlaw Trail RV Park, Jensen, Utah

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $32.00
Overall Rating:      

If you are here to go to Dinosaur National Monument, this park has full hookups, fairly level sites and reasonable prices. It is a buck extra if you use a credit card. Although the highway frontage is a well kept lawn, sites are all gravel, no picnic tables or trees. A utilitarian campground for a specific purpose. Wifi, when it worked, was very, very slow, apparently due to a dispute with the local phone company. This is not a place to recline outside drinking wine and eating snacks. We camped at Outlaw Trail RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is not a town, but a tired looking settlement with a new state visitor center, a closed gas station and a greasy spoon restaurant food for breakfast.

Steamboat Springs KOA, Steamboat Springs, Colorado

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $47.00
Overall Rating:      

We were given a Route 66 membership. Route 66 never sent us a membership card, but did send an email showing we were members. It is supposed to mean a 10% discount, but this KOA would not honor it because it was a sheet of paper, not a card. We stayed a shorter time, so they made less money. Such an attitude does not go down well with these travelers. The grounds looked nice, but we spent our time in town. A lot of trees obscured some satellite channels and the park cable had a low quality signal. It rained a lot and mud was developing where the site's gravel was sparse. We camped at Steamboat Springs KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Earp & James Hitching Post (formerly Lottie-Dell Campground), Snowville, Utah

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

This is an unmanned campground-you put your money (cash or check only) in a envelope and put it in a slot. But I made a reservation online (it cost me $3 more) and selected a specific site, but you just take whatever you want. We called first, left a message and never got a call back. Being Labor Day weekend, we wanted to have a reservation, but we didn't need it. The first two sites (33, 34) had the polarity reversed on the 30 amp power. Not good for electronics and some motors. We went to 31 and it was ok and the people in 32 said their site was correct too. After a while I noticed an intermittent sewer gas smell here and there. I finally realized that the reason the ground was depressed around the sewer connection must be a leak that is undermining the area and sewer gas is filtering through the ground to the surface. It was worse close to the ground. The water shut off also leaded unstoppably. This is a good location because there is nothing for many miles on this section of I-84. The sites are fairly large and level or close to level, but maintenance is spotty and not keeping up. Pretty views of the prairie and mountains abound, but perhaps only a one night stop when you are eating up miles. Since it is mellow there, if you can avoid electrical problems and sewer gas, a place perhaps to rest up. If anything goes wrong, it appears there was a button to press where you check in. We camped at Earp & James Hitching Post (formerly Lottie-Dell Campground) in a Travel Trailer.

Premier RV Resort of Salem Oregon, Salem, Oregon

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $49.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a "resort" with many amenities and lots of long term campers. But on one thing they fail to provide a basic service. The water is cloudy. No matter how long it runs, it stays cloudy. Not just the hot water, but the cold too. Cloudy water is a good vehicle for waterborne diseases. We used it to wash dishes, brush teeth and haven't gotten sick, but we wouldn't drink it. Bring several gallons of clear, clean water if you go here. Many sites had concrete pads that had a ramp up, a flat place for the RV, then another ramp up to the hex the road. As a result we had to place the trailer in the middle and park the truck behind it. The campground complains people are parking on the roads, but they rent spaces to long RV's and because of the uneven pads, people have to stick into the roads. We stayed here because it was near the house of friends, but we'd not go back. We never used the amenities since we were visiting friends and seeing some of the sites. More a park for long term people who like somewhat narrow sites. We camped at Premier RV Resort of Salem Oregon in a Travel Trailer.

The state capital building is unique. Influenced by art deco and maybe some Frank Lloyd Wright, it is an impressive change on the usual capital buIlding.

Big Pines RV Park, Crescent, Oregon

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $42.00
Overall Rating:      

A campground amongst the tall pine trees is the dream of campers looking for a rustic spot to regenerate. The layout of sites is unlike any other park and it is nice to not be in dull rows of big boxes and busses. The owner is starting to work on doubling his campground and is gladthe town is getting a sewer system. He seems to be one of those guys who makes things happen. A nice place to stay for a few days exploring the area and within driving distance to Crater Lake. We camped at Big Pines RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Harborview Inn & RV Park, Garibaldi, Oregon

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $44.00
Overall Rating:      

The Harborville Inn is not an inn, but a very ordinary motel with a campground behind and next to it. They called our site a "pull in" site which means it is for a motor home and all the hook ups as pm the wrong side for a trailer. The RV park is on a peninsula on a bay off the ocean. Good location, ordinary otherwise and a pain to get to hookups. "Pull-in" is the kind of advertising that turns off people. Site was level and gravel. There was some grass between sites, but a lot was dead. Since next to us was a truck camper that pulled straight in, they took the picnic table and most of the space between us. It went with their space, so it was not their fault we had to come and go next to their turf. There were a few real pull throughs, but they were already taken. We camped at Harborview Inn & RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Springville/Provo KOA , Springville, Utah

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

Like many KOA's, this one is wearing out and the sites were small and short. We were taken to the wrong site and figured that out after the golf cart left. As a courtesy after we were partly set up, we called the office and were told to move. We refused and then the woman in the office hung up on us. Then the new manager came along and we agreed the proper site was exactly like this one and we could stay and the people who had reserved the site we were in would have to use the other one. The manager seemed like she was on top of things and was trying to improve the place. She has some work ahead of her. We never used the family things KOA's are known for. This was an overnight stop, in the right place and ok for that. We camped at Springville/Provo KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Heise Hot Springs, Ririe, Idaho

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $35.00
Overall Rating:      

Heise is a resort with hot springs, a number of RV areas, a golf course and pizza restaurant. It is intermingled with another resort (7N) and they each have hay fields between various places. The Snake River runs through the area and a tall bluff is east of the area. Some of the individual camping areas have gates, always a pain to reach the keypad from a truck or an RV. Lots of trees interfered with satellite and I could not move the trailer a few feet because they were very strict where it was. A zip line went over some of the sites and there was a constant sound of squeaky wheels as the zipsters kept going by. We kept the windows closed and ran the A/C. The sites were a good size. Our Verizon phone and hot spot worked, but friends had troubles with their provider. We had pizza one night and though it was not great pizza, it was pretty good for where we were. The hot springs was a series of concrete pools, nothing natural about it. The hot pool (104) seemed much cooler than that and was enclosed so as to magnify the noise from all the kids. This was not relaxing. No discount for anyone staying there plus have a quarter for the lockers. Since we met friends there, we had a good time with them, but Heise seemed more a business investment than a welcoming resort. They did not raise their prices for the total eclipse and for that, they should be complimented. Perhaps a resort, but a pretty basic one. We camped at Heise Hot Springs in a Travel Trailer.

Vale Trails RV Park , Vale, Oregon

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $42.00
Overall Rating:      

This is an oder park and suitable for an overnight unless the stockyard next door is having auctions. Then it smells like a feed lot. There is also the railroad next to the park, but only one train a day goes by I was told. Sites are wide enough, though some are short. Grass was bare and looks like it is hard to keep up with maintenance. It was clean, but old like me. The park is in the town and has an urban configuration. Glad it was hot so we could avoid the smell of cattle and the noise of the train and mooing. Some sites had picnic tables and it appeared people move them around. There were small concrete pads intended to be next to the RV door, but it was for an era on smaller RV's and didn't match contemporary needs. We camped at Vale Trails RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tall Texan Campground, Gunnison, Colorado

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $43.00
Overall Rating:      

Have you ever gone to a restaurant where they sat you at a really small table when there were lots and lots of larger ones? No one ever came in and got those tables, but the owners were more interested in a hoped for surge than satisfying the people who were actually there. This campground stuffed us into a small site and we had to cram our tow vehicle perpendicular to the trailer. But larger spaces were all around. Fair number of long term RVs with much stuff on their sites. Lots of trees, somewhat narrow roads make towing through the park difficult for some rigs. It is right next to a county road and some sites may be noisy because of it. Cable TV available at some sites for an extra $3 (lots of extra charges for guests, etc.). They never told us the WiFi password and it is not on the paperwork. We forgot to ask. At around $43 per night, this campground is simply not worth it even though the trees are nice. Next time we'll check out another nearby even though it is near the airport. A lot of campgrounds listed under Gunnison are actually west of town near Blue Mesa reservoir and fairly far. Getting something right near town is not easy. We camped at Tall Texan Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Haggard's RV Campground, Pueblo West, Colorado

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $27.00
Overall Rating:      

Our site was fairly large though not long enough if we didn't want to unhitch. Wifi was better than most western campgrounds. it looks like the owners are putting a lot into this and have some way to go, but the place is well kept (spotty grass, but this is the desert). There is a walking trail around the campground with lots of flowers. From the highway it looks kind of barren amongst the sagebrush and bunch grass, but there are some trees and it looks better when you are there. Nice views of the Rockies. The woman owner is quite exuberant and friendly. We have passed this campground many times on our way to Pueblo and it is a lot better inside than it looks from US 50. Pueblo has little to offer for campgrounds other than the state park. Fort's in the city does not answer the phone, take messages or answer e-mails. The KOA north of Pueblo is going downhill fast. Haggards is west of Pueblo West and about 20 miles west of the city of Pueblo, but is a fairly fast (65 mph) trip into Pueblo. There is a KOA 20 miles south if you are on I-25. We were pleased with our stay. We camped at Haggard's RV Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Blue Mountain RV Park, Blanding, Utah

Date of Stay: April, 2017 - $32.00
Overall Rating:      

This a very clean and orderly park with basic hookups in a town with little to offer, especially when it comes to restaurants. We came to see Bears Ears National Monument and this is one town, but not the only one, with easy access to the Monument. Wifi worked much of the time, though would die on occasion. Water pressure was low. No cable, but a repeater got us SLC channels including a lot of PBS and some cool PBS subchannels. The family that owns it also owns a motel in town and a trading post, motel, restaurant and probably a few other things down the road in Bluff. They are nice people and good at business. We were in the back with good views to the west (including the Bear's Ears), but would have preferred other larger sites if we had been given the option. Just ask about other options, something we didn't think of. A fine place to stay so long as you want to eat every meal in your RV or just need a stop overnight. No picnic tables, fire rings and little grass. Some older trees and a lot of freshly planted ones (will have great shade in 5 or 10 years). it looks like they are constantly improving the place. We camped at Blue Mountain RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

There is a visitor center with some information on the north end of town. On the south side are a few RV spaces. We couldn't find restaurant with breakfast on a Saturday and went to Bluff, 20+ miles south where there are several excellent to decent restaurants. The state park in town has a very good museum and a below average Anasazi ruin.

Moab KOA, Moab, Utah

Date of Stay: April, 2017 - $48.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a busy and very crowded campground. Sites are all red sand with some mature trees. You'll probably track in the sand and may get it all over your water hose. Sites are small and we had to maneuver around a telephone pole. The place to park our truck meant pushing tree branches out of the way. The water spigot was surrounded by decorative plants and hard to access. Wifi died at times and was fair others. Fair amount of cable channels. Some sites do not have cable and some are so small you are required to park your tow vehicle somewhere else. Moab has become crowded, expensive and very busy. This park reflects that. When I suggested to the guy who showed us the site that parking was difficult for our truck, he was argumentative and nasty. Having to get reservations on short notice, we got bad information on both the KOA website and from a call to the campground. Calling the campground again meant no one answering the phone for many hours trying to straighten out things. We'll look elsewhere next time we go through Moab. We camped at Moab KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Pueblo KOA, Pueblo, Colorado

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

We've stayed here before, but not for several years. The decline is palpable. First we noticed part of the campground is being turned into a storage lot for RV's with a score or more motorhomes parked behind the jumping pillow. Then you see, as noted by another reviewer, the front steps and ramp are rotting, the paint is peeling and someone will break through someday. Walk into the office, and a sign says they will rent you a fire ring for $5 and sell you wood for $3. It looks like the owners are looking for any way to make more money.

Our site is among the long timers and their campsites are messy, their vehicles are old and noisy. Since the sites are somewhat narrow and short, we have them much too close. If you don't want to unhitch, forget it. To be fair, the wifi works well and some other sites look cleaner and bigger, but our experience has been quite poor.

Some campgrounds try to inject some humor into the rules and this is one of them, but they are not professional comedians and the result is just to sound heavy handed.

Access to the campground is through a narrow one lane tunnel under I-25 from the south and if you are going north on I-25 when you leave, you will have to go through the tunnel. We watched a very long motorhome with a toad get through, just barely. The campground is next to I-25 and some may find the noise from that and a nearby railroad too loud. Interior roads are tight and bushes and trees need trimming. I guessed the rate since my wife paid it and she's not here now. KOA's usually are pricey.

Pueblo is not graced with much in the way of campgrounds, but next time we will look elsewhere. We have been to many KOA's and we notice many of them are getting old and tired, but this one is the worst KOA ever. We camped at Pueblo KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Rock Island KOA, Rock Island, Illinois

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $50.00
Overall Rating:      

This is an older KOA and very expensive. The Quad Cities do not have many private campgrounds and the other (Interstate in Davenport) is also expensive. This is adequate for short stays. Roads are quite narrow. If this campground were full, everyone would be very close, and driving the roads would be a challenge. There are a couple of lakes here and the campground is in the trees so the light industry in the area is not visible. We camped at Rock Island KOA in a Travel Trailer.
