Horsetooth Reservoir, South Bay Campground, Fort Collins, Colorado

Date of Stay: October, 2015 - $18.00
Overall Rating:      

The campground is located at the south en d of the horse tooth reservoir just west of Fort Collins. Interior roads are well groomed gravel and sites are level. There are full hook up sites but we chose an electric only site for our one night stay.

Weekends are busy so book ahead. We camped at Horsetooth Reservoir, South Bay Campground in a Travel Trailer.

The area is great for wildlife viewing, hiking, biking and boating. Nearby Fort Collins is a nice college town with a great, pedestrian only downtown.

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

Date of Stay: October, 2015 - $22.00
Overall Rating:      

The manager of this park is one of the nicest people I've ever met in the hospitality industry - friendly, outgoing and gave us a great restaurant recommendation.

There are some full time residents but the campground is so well run and maintained that it is a non-issue. All the sites are tidy and the public areas spotless.

Evansville is immediately east of Casper and the neighborhood is industrial -- the only reason I didn't give this park a "10". We camped at River's Edge RV & Cabins Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Villanueva State Park, Villanueva, New Mexico

Date of Stay: October, 2015 - $14.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a gem of a state park. It is well off the beaten path, down in a valley surrounded by limestone cliffs and adjoins the Pecos river.

The sites are generously sized and easy to access. The dump station was neat and well organized.

The road fro I25 down to the park is a bit of a challenge but our 31' TT did just fine. We camped at Villanueva State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Horseshoe RV Park (formerly RL RV Park LLC), Ranger, Texas

Date of Stay: October, 2013 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

Long, flat pull-through sites. Unlike one of the previous posters, the owner met us at the office and registered us and we were able to use our CC. Well maintained landscaping, all utilities worked fine. Wi-Fi decent. Verizon 3 sticks. There is a set of tracks about 250 yards away and we probably saw a half dozen trains. As there are no nearby crossings, there were no train horns so noise is not an issue. A nice, safe inexpensive place to stay and a very hospitable host. We camped at Horseshoe RV Park (formerly RL RV Park LLC) in a Travel Trailer.

Tumble In RV Park , Marfa, Texas

Date of Stay: April, 2013 - $24.00
Overall Rating:      

Tumble In is not your typical boring commercial RV park. The "office" is a refurbed Scotty (I think) and check in is unusual--you leave your CC number or cash as there is no attendant. The pull throughs are huge and easy to access. The landscaping is new so no worries about dialing in your satellite. WiFi the best we have ever had on the road. Great water pressure as well. Bathrooms were spotless and new. Yes, there are trains. But with the AC running, we barely noticed. Marfa is a fun little town. We camped at Tumble In RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Sand Island Recreation Area (BLM), Bluff, Utah

Date of Stay: May, 2011 - $10.00
Overall Rating:      

A nice, well laid out BLM campground. Many sites will handle a medium sized rig and a few will handle a big rig. There is a fresh water spigot adjacent to the "iron ranger" fee collection pedestal, but there is no dump station. Verizon was a sometimes thing. If you have big iron, be sure to follow the signs to Campground "B". Campground A will work fine for tenters or small towables. We camped at Sand Island Recreation Area (BLM) in a Travel Trailer.

Palisade State Park, Sterling, Utah

Date of Stay: May, 2011 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

Considering the budget woes facing most state parks, this one is obviously well funded and well cared for. We stayed in the new Wakara section of full hook-ups. Paved sites, more or less level, easy back-ins. One caveat: during our visit there was extremely low water pressure. We resorted to filling our on-board water tank and using our on-board pump. Sure made showering more enjoyable. Didn't golf but the course looked healthy and well -tended. We camped at Palisade State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Illinois State Fair Campgrounds, Springfield, Illinois

Date of Stay: September, 2009 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

From a previous post, we thought full hook-up sites were available but when we arrived we were told that all are two-way (water, electric). As we were only staying two days, it was not an issue. The campground is nicely maintained and although all but 1 of the bath/shower facilities are beginning to show their age, they were clean. CG is very close to downtown and the major sights. The dump station is difficult to get close to, you will need 15-20' feet of sewer hose. A good value. We camped at Illinois State Fair Campgrounds in a Travel Trailer.

Shady Creek COE, Muscatine, Iowa

Date of Stay: September, 2009 - $16.00
Overall Rating:      

Like all COE parks, the sites are very spacious and level. There are water spigots strategically placed all over so you can usually refill your water with 50-75' of hose. The view of the Mississippi is excellent and there are benches provided so you may linger and watch. Twin dump stations on the way out minimize waits. Hosts were friendly and efficient. We camped at Shady Creek COE in a Travel Trailer.

Cottonwood Campground (NPS Campground), Medora, North Dakota

Date of Stay: September, 2009 - $10.00
Overall Rating:      

As in most national parks, TR is dry camping. They do have a handy potable water spigot as you enter the campground. There is no dump station. The sites are in a wooded area (cottonwood trees) and there are several that would take the largest motorhomes. Most would accept our 30' trailer. The evening Ranger program was excellent. We camped at Cottonwood Campground (NPS Campground) in a Travel Trailer.

Fort Abraham Lincoln State Park, Mandan, North Dakota

Date of Stay: September, 2009 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

Fort Abraham Lincoln State Park is located 7 miles south of Mandan, ND and across the Missouri from Bismarck. The sites are fairly large yet oddly laid out: some drive-throughs are designed to hold two units, which requires the latecomer to back in. The water spigots are randomly placed so you will need at least 50' of water hose in many cases. Park is nicely treed and the grass is in good shape. Park's visitor center/museum is excellent. We camped at Fort Abraham Lincoln State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Lindenwood Park, Fargo, North Dakota

Date of Stay: September, 2009 - $26.00
Overall Rating:      

Park has lovely sites along the Red River. It's close to downtown. Would rate higher except for the closeness to I-94 road noise. Most sites are more or less level but with some slope fore and aft, so leveling rig will take awhile. Water spigots are located more than one 25' hose length from some sites, so bring a spare. We camped at Lindenwood Park in a Travel Trailer.

Curry Hammock State Park, Marathon, Florida

Date of Stay: April, 2008 - $31.00
Overall Rating:      

Absolutely the best volunteer hosts in the Florida State Park System. Sites are spotless upon check-in as are the restrooms and showers. The beach was recently recontured to better attract nesting sea turtles but in the process providing a more natural looking beach. New in 2008 is the park now being open 365 days a year (previously closed in the summer). Very reasonable kayak rentals from he rangers office. Curry Hammock was completed replanted with native plants and trees only some 3 years ago so there is NO shade. Camping in the summer, while available. may well be uncomfortable in the afternoon unless you have very good air conditioning. Highly recommended. We camped at Curry Hammock State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Astoria / Warrenton / Seaside KOA, Hammond, Oregon

Date of Stay: August, 2007 - $52.00
Overall Rating:      

Ended up at this huge KOA because the adjacent Ft Stevens State Park was full. Our site was in row F which is the least developed part of the property (ours was, at $52 a night, one of the least expensive W/E only sites available). Sites were very close together and not particularly well maintained; tall weeds in lawn, someone's 6 month cigarette butt collection in the fire ring, picnic table extremely weathered. Definitely not worth the money. Tried hard to get into the state park -- we drove through and it was much prettier and better maintained. We camped at Astoria / Warrenton / Seaside KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Del Norte Redwoods State Park, Crescent City, California

Date of Stay: July, 2007 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

Beautiful state park located just south of Crescent City in a canyon full of mature second growth redwoods. Sites are a little tight -- RV's with multiple slide-outs might have trouble fully deploying. Long drive in from US 101 (2.5 miles)has some interesting twists and grades but is do-able with care for even the big rigs. Dump station a bit antiquated but serviceable (take the left lane as it is level). Nearby beach at Crescent City (~5 miles) is very nice and dogs are welcome. We camped at Del Norte Redwoods State Park in a Travel Trailer.
