Portal RV Resort and Campground, Moab, Utah

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $79.00
Overall Rating:      

So, there are two sections to this RV park. In my opinion, there should be a spot to review each section of the park. We stayed in the resort side. Hands down, it is the nicest RV resort we have stayed in, to date. The grounds are immaculate, the dog run is perfect size, the pool is great, the space between sites is perfect, etc. It is one of the very best. We had LTE from AT&T and the park has WiFi but warns against streaming, which I can appreciate. Also, the views of the Moab bluffs is striking in the morning as the sun rises. We camped at Portal RV Resort and Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Go to El Charro Loco for the best Mexican restaurant in town. The service is a little slow but is easily made up for by the food. Be sure to go to Delicate Arch, in Arches National Park, at sunset. The colors are amazing. There is so much to do so spend your time wisely!

Thousand Lakes RV Park, Torrey, Utah

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

This was a great park and I think it is in line with past reviews. The registration area has $.75 coffee and homemade muffins. They also have a great supply/gift shop. Unfortunately, we stayed in site 24. Try to avoid row 23-29, the row we were in. There is no grass on that row and nearly every other row has grass. Also, our fire ring was almost directly under a class A slide out so we were unable to use, which was a bummer. There is a pool, which we used and enjoyed. I would recommend visiting the town of Torrey, UT. It is a cute little town and lots of good restaurants. This RV park was a great place to stay to see all of Capitol Reef National Park. We camped at Thousand Lakes RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Go to Slackerz burger joint in Torrey. It is outstanding! Also, if you plan to go to Bryce after this stop, Hwy 12 is quite entertaining. It has some beautiful overlooks and scary drop-offs! Also, get a cinnamon roll from the store at intersection of Hwy 24 and Hwy 12 :).

Goulding's Lodge & Campground, Monument Valley, Utah

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $68.00
Overall Rating:      

This was a hard park to review. It is, by far, the nicest RV park in the Monument Valley area but at $70 per night, it is quite expensive. Since this was our first visit to Monument Valley, I didn't realize the lack of amenities in the area. For example, there are only two restaurants and one gas station in the entire area. So, with that said, Gouldings is your best bet for a full hook-up RV site. We passed the other RV parks that we considered and they were essentially dirt parking areas. Gouldings is situated in a valley surrounding by beautiful rock formations. While we didn't use any of the park's amenities, others seemed to be enjoying their time. There was 3G cell service on our AT&T devices. The wifi was decent for the area. We camped at Goulding's Lodge & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Morefield Campground (NPS), Mesa Verde National Park, Colorado

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $45.00
Overall Rating:      

This is all about location, location, location. This is a no frills national park campground. As with most national park campgrounds, location is the reason you stay. The campground is 4 miles into the park and is a perfect location to explore Mesa Verde National Park. Within the first few hours of getting to our site, we saw a bobcat roaming the campground, which was very cool (and provided a great video opportunity)! The general store and adjoining outdoor cafe were very convenient, too. The wifi didn't work and AT&T had no reception. We camped at Morefield Campground (NPS) in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Be sure to visit the visitor's center immediately after setting up camp. The visitor's center has tour tickets, which are required to see the most desirable cliff dwellings. You will need tickets for Balcony House, Long House and Cliff Palace. They do sell out so you want to visit as soon as possible. Also, if you make it into Mancos, CO, Chavalos Mexican Food was very good.

Ridgway State Park, Ridgway, Colorado

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $33.00
Overall Rating:      

Beware of chipmunks (I will get to that later)! We stayed in the Pa-Co-Chu-Puk section of the park, the most southern camping area at Ridgway. This is a great state park, especially if you are a fly fisherman. Most of our fellow campers were up early and on the Uncompagrhe River. It was centrally located for day trips to Black Canyon of Gunnison, Ouray, Silverton, and Telluride. Now, let's talk about the chipmunks. It seems that many of the folks who have camped at this park in the past have fed the chipmunks. On three separate occasions, I saw chipmunks jumping into my truck chassis and fifth wheel chassis. Luckily, I did not have any problems with them chewing but I assume there are some who have had problems. I know there is not much you can do but maybe not feeding them will help others in the future. We camped at Ridgway State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Alpen Rose RV Park, Durango, Colorado

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $51.00
Overall Rating:      

Great RV park if you book the pull throughs or big rig sites. We were in the pull throughs and they were great. However, the other rigs are VERY close to you. I booked a site on the end of a row so we only had one person to our west. When I walked our dog through the park, I am not sure I would want to stay in the back-in sites. It doesn't appear the back-in area is as well kept as the pull through and big rig sites. The dog park is 2 acres, which you cannot beat. Our dog loved it. We camped at Alpen Rose RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Be sure to go to Derailed Pourhouse in downtown Durango. It was a great meal and atmosphere. If you like breweries, go to Durango Brewing company for beer only - their food was not ideal. We did the Durango-Silverton train and it is a must do. However, I would recommend the train to Silverton and the bus back to Durango. We were on the train for 8 hours (3.5 hours to Silverton and 4.5 hours back to Durango). It made for a long day.

Mountain Landing Suites & RV Park, Pagosa Springs, Colorado

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

Great park and the staff was diligently working throughout our visit. They were picking up pine cones, mowing the grass, and very attentive to our needs, although we didn't have any big ones. Every night, the deer would roam through the north-side of the park. It was relatively quiet. We had 4G/LTE on AT&T, which was good since the wifi was quite poor. We camped at Mountain Landing Suites & RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Be sure to get a spot in the 20's that backs to open space. That is where the deer are during the morning and evening. It provides a lot of privacy. Also, do the four mile creek falls hike. And, if you plan to trail run or mountain bike, Turkey Springs trail system is just a few minutes away.

Mountain Views at Rivers Edge RV Resort, Creede, Colorado

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

This park was a huge surprise. The rv sites are huge and the views are amazing. Get up early to watch the sunrise and stay up late to watch the sunset. It was worth it. The office has a gift shop, which has a ton of RV supplies. The laundry room was extremely clean and the amenities were great. It is a very secure park and they have several rules so be sure to follow them. We like rules so if you don't, this may not be the park for you. We camped at Mountain Views at Rivers Edge RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

There are not a ton of pull-throughs but if you can get one, they are awesome. Also, go eat at Kip's Grill as it was very good. It is about 1 hour and 15 minutes from the Great Sand Dune National Park. Also, Ramon's Mexican Restaurant in South Fork is great.

Santa Fe Skies RV Park, Santa Fe, New Mexico

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

This is an RV park that sits south of the city of Santa Fe, on a small hill. It has some great views. The biggest drawback of this park is that it isn't very tidy. There are a lot of weeds and no grass but it is the desert so maybe to be expected. The staff was awesome and the trail around the park (3/4 mile) was perfect for dog walking. We camped at Santa Fe Skies RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Trailer Village (Concessionnaire Operated), Grand Canyon National Park, Arizona

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $45.00
Overall Rating:      

This is all about location, location, location. Unfortunately, the park is not well kept and the full-timers (on the east side of the park) have made it somewhat of an eyesore. With that said, you can walk and ride bikes to anywhere on the south rim. It is so convenient! There is also elk that walked through the park, which our family loved. It would be awesome if Xanterra cleaned up the park and the full-timers. Until then, stay for the location and not the amenities. We camped at Trailer Village (Concessionnaire Operated) in a Fifth Wheel.

Canyon Gateway RV Park, Williams, Arizona

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

This park is one of our favorites. The property is immaculate and, if you have a Passport America card, it is one of the best values around. The only (minor) drawback is the lack of grass. However, it is the high desert so it is sort of expected. We have a dog and finding a spot to go potty can be challenging. There is a train that goes by so if noise is a concern for you, it may not be a great fit. The bathrooms and showers were great and the staff is very helpful!

American RV Resort, Albuquerque, New Mexico

Date of Stay: April, 2017 - $41.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed here for one night on our way to Southern California. It was a great park but we didn't have time to really explore much. The staff was super sweet and helpful. The only drawback to this park is its proximity to the I-40. We were right along the freeway however we still slept fine. If you are a light sleeper, you may want to pick a spot farthest from I-40. We camped at American RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Fort Collins / Lakeside KOA , Fort Collins, Colorado

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

We stayed here for a couple weeks. Without the KOA Value Rewards card, it would have been $52.00 per night, which would be a high price for what you get. We did enjoy the tons of grass throughout the park. We didn't like the $10 per day charge to any visitor, the shortness of the staff, and the number of full-timers. This park feels more like a community of full-timers and not a RV park. Also, the Wi-Fi was useless but we did get AT&T 4G data coverage so we used that. Fort Collins, and Northern Colorado, don't have a lot of parks to choose from so this one works. We camped at Fort Collins / Lakeside KOA in a Fifth Wheel.
