Durango KOA, Durango, Colorado

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $55.00
Overall Rating:      

We really enjoyed this park as a base camp for our day trips in the Durango area. The staff members were very friendly and helpful. Our site was on a hill in the back of the campground away from it all. We really enjoyed the homemade pizza delivered to our campsite and the dessert bar with ice cream and pie. Our daughter loved the playground, rubber duck race and mini golf. They also offer the following (which we didn't get to try): pool, nightly movies and pancake breakfast. Our only complaint was the wifi; it worked at our site late one night, but the rest of the time we had to go to the store to use it. We camped at Durango KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Garden of the Gods Campground, Colorado Springs, Colorado

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $56.00
Overall Rating:      

The park is in the middle of town and it is an easy drive to all the tourist areas. The sites are cleaned between visitors and the laundry room was nice. Some of the sites are tiny; ours was okay but I felt sorry for our neighbors because their site was so small that their awning almost touched our camper. The wifi didn't work at our site and also didn't work in the laundry room, which is in the same building as the office. We camped at Garden of the Gods Campground in a Travel Trailer.

If you like history, visit Rock Ledge Ranch (next to Garden of the Gods Visitor Center). It is a living history site that showcases four time periods of Colorado Springs history.

Winding River RV Resort, Grand Lake, Colorado

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $57.00
Overall Rating:      

This park is adjacent to Rocky Mountain National Park. We stayed here for two nights as a home base for visiting the National Park. The RV park was very clean and the staff friendly. There are only a few full hookup sites and they are close together. There are more electric & water sites and they are more spacious and some are secluded.

The park has facilities for horse owners to bring their own horses. They also offer trail rides, pony rides, hayrides and an animal petting area. There is no wifi, but we had a good cellular signal. We camped at Winding River RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

If you like to see wildlife, drive Trail Ridge Road in the National Park just after dawn. We saw 70+ elk in 5 groups between the RV park and the mountain pass one morning.

The grocery stores in nearby Grand Lake are closed on Sunday evenings. If you are arriving from the south on Sunday and will need groceries, stop at City Market in Granby on your way.

We stayed here overnight on our way through the state. The park was near the interstate and easy to get to, so it was adequate for our needs. We camped at WaKeeney KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Johnson's Shut-Ins State Park, Middlebrook, Missouri

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $28.00
Overall Rating:      

Let me start with this: if you want to stay in a park with wifi, cell service and TV, this is not the place for you. However, if you want to get away from it all and get back to nature, then this should be on your list of places to go. Johnson's Shut-ins is located in a very scenic area of the Ozarks and is one of my favorite places to visit. The park is extremely popular in the summer but doesn't get too crowded since there is a maximum number of cars allowed in the day-use area at one time. The campground includes restrooms & showers in each loop, bike paths, playground, amphitheater for evening programs and wifi at the camp store. The rest of the park has a visitor center, picnic area, hiking trails and the shut-ins, which is a wonderful place to splash and swim. There is a special parking lot for registered campers, so you have access to the shut-ins even if the day-use area is full and a line has formed. Or you can ride bikes on the path that connects the campground to the day-use area. We stayed in Site 203 and loved it. Trees separated the site from most of the others and gave us partial shade, but there was also an open, grassy area for playing catch. The river was closed due to high water, but it didn't bother us at all since there are plenty of other things to do. My only complaint is that the camp store is only open for a few hours on Friday, Saturday and Sunday and not at all during the week (it may be open more often during the summer season). So be prepared to drive several miles to town if you need supplies and it's not open. By the way, if signs are posted stating the river is closed due to high water, please stay out of the water. People have drowned at the shut-ins from trying to cross the river during high water. It doesn't matter if you're a strong swimmer; debris such as trees gets stuck in the shut-ins and can trap you underwater. We camped at Johnson's Shut-Ins State Park in a Travel Trailer.

If you can't find enough to do within the park, the following are a short drive away: Elephant Rocks State Park, Battle of Pilot Knob State Historic Site (Civil War battle), Taum Sauk Mountain State Park (highest point in MO and hike to Mina Sauk Falls) and floating on the crystal clear Black River.

Echo Bluff State Park, Eminence, Missouri

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

This was our second stay here and the park has become one of our favorites. Most of the park is within walking distance of the campground, with paved sidewalks or gravel trails connecting the different areas. The lodge and cabins are beautiful. There are programs at the amphitheater on weekend evenings during the summer. The playground is one of the nicest I've ever seen and includes a splash pad. There are historic buildings from the time the park was used as a youth summer camp. There are two hiking/mountain biking loops that include mountain bike challenge elements. We hiked both loops and enjoyed the hike very much (the trailhead is one of the few places you must drive to). Sinking Creek flows through the park; it is crystal clear and warmer than nearby Current River so it it is perfect for swimming and splashing, even in the spring. We stayed four nights over the extended Easter weekend. The lodge had photos with the Easter bunny, crafts and an Easter egg hunt for the kids. There is excellent wifi in the campground as well as at the lodge and the picnic pavilions at the playground. Cell service is not good. There is no shade in the campground yet, but trees have been planted. The wind can be strong in the campground. If it gets windy, pull your awning in. The gentleman in the campsite next to us returned to camp and found his awning on top of his trailer. We camped at Echo Bluff State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

There is plenty to do outside the park too. Round Spring and cave and Alley Spring (with historic mill) are a short drive away. Floating on the Current and Jacks Fork Rivers is very popular. There are several canoe rentals in the area and some of them even come into the park to pick up and drop off floaters.

Montauk State Park, Salem, Missouri

Date of Stay: March, 2017 - $23.00
Overall Rating:      

This is one of my favorite places to camp and we come here at least one weekend a year. Most of the campsites are very large and have at least partial shade. Most of the sites are reservable but there are a few first-come/first-served. I recommend either making reservations or getting there early because the campground is full almost every weekend from March through October. There are two bathhouses and two dump stations. The wifi works fairly well, but you will probably not have a cell phone signal. This is one of the state's trout parks and is my favorite place to fish since parts of the river are away from the road. There is plenty to do even if you don't fish: hiking trails, playgrounds, feeding the hatchery fish, the historic mill or floating the Current River. You can't swim in the park but you can drive a couple miles downstream to swim. There are several canoe rentals in the area. We camped at Montauk State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Camp LeConte Luxury Outdoor Resort, Gatlinburg, Tennessee

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $54.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed here for a week to visit the national park and tourist sites in Gatlinburg. The park is outside of town so it is quiet and was wooded next to our site. The staff was very friendly and the park is very clean. They had several commercial washers and dryers in the laundry and the wifi worked well. My daughter loved that there was a pool. The RV park is about 15-20 minutes from the main entrance of the national park and 5 minutes to the Greenbrier entrance. There is a nice grocery store about 2 miles away. The Gatlinburg trolley has a stop in front of the office. My only complaint was that the office/store closed early on several days and we had to go elsewhere to get change for the laundry. We camped at Camp LeConte Luxury Outdoor Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Ride the trolley to Gatlinburg so you don't have to pay for parking. The Greenbrier entrance to the national park is 5 minutes east, has hiking trails and is much less busy than the main areas of the park.
