Watchman Campground (NPS Campground), Zion National Park, Utah

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $15.00
Overall Rating:

Pros: This park is located on the virgin river and many sites are right along the river. We stayed in B Loop which is RV only. Our site was right on the river. So beautiful to wake up to the sound of the river and listen to the laughter as children and adults played in the river all day. The sites were large and clean. We would have easily parked two RVs in our spot. This park is easy walking distance of the visitors center and free shuttles up the canyon and to many of the best trails. There is good recycling except there is no paper recycling. The prices are so reasonable. Cons: There are no showers in the park nor stores. However there is a free shuttle that will take you to the town of Hurricane just outside of the park that has all of these amenities. If I had it to do over again, I would go in May when there are fewer people. There were so many people that the trails were so crowded that it felt like we were at Disneyland more than a National Park. We camped at Watchman Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

1) Coming and going from Zion in a motorhome is much easier if you come and go from the south entrance. Coming in from the north entrance requires getting a permit at the entrance gate and special arrangements to safely traverse the tunnel into the park from that direction.

Zion River Resort RV Park & Campground, Virgin, Utah

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $58.00
Overall Rating:

This was one of the best parks we have stayed in on our two month trip so far. We really enjoyed our stay. Pros: The park is so clean and well maintained it reminded us of Disneyland with its wide asphalt streets, attractive cement parking pads, large grassy areas behind or beside many of the sites, and large mature shade trees and vegetation throughout the park. There were many amenities including a pool and spa. The store was outstanding providing a very good selection of groceries, camping and RV supplies, and nice gifts. All sites have a concrete pad to park on, full hook-ups, a very nice picnic table and a fire ring nestled in an attractive graveled portion of the site. There are barbeque dinners available ranging from $10-$13.00 on Thursday-Sunday which was very good and an ice cream social ($2.50 to $3.75) on those same nights. There is also a very nice walking trail from the park into Virgin City. They have a lot of activities for kids, and you can arrange for a dog walker if you are away from the park. The Neutrals: Not all sites have grassy areas and those that do not are not nearly as nice as those that had large grassy areas for sitting out at night. We asked to be moved and the office accommodated us. We would have rated the value for the site we were first assigned (no grass, electrical panel in back) as "ok," and the site we were moved to as "excellent". The wifi is fast some of the time and very slow at other times. While Verizon service is poor in the park there is a good signal in the billiard room at the office. The Cons: The only con we can think of is really outside of the control of the park and might even be a "pro" in the winter. But while we were there, the temperature was 107 degrees at the the RV park, while the temperature at the campgrounds within Zion NP were 10 degrees cooler. We camped at Zion River Resort RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

For $7.00 the park has a shuttle that takes guests to Zion National Park at 8:00 am and returns to pick guests up at 2:00 pm. Make reservations early as the shuttle is small. Also be sure to make a reservation for the barbeque dinners as they sold out every night we were there.

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

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

We did not stay at the campground proper, but rather the overflow area, so our review may differ in various aspects from those of campers who stayed at the main campground. Let us begin by saying how lucky we felt to get into Ruby's at all. We had reservations at another campground but it was such a poor experience that we moved after just an hour! The main campground was full for the 3 days we wanted to stay so we were so pleased to get a space at the overflow. In some ways, it was better than the regular campground! It is nestled among motel wings, closer to the laundromat, restaurant and store. The pool was a short walk away. Our site was level, near the lake, had full hook-ups, and a large grassy area on either side of us. We would not hesitate to stay here again.There was a free shuttle stop just outside of the camping area that took us into the park with stops at many of the most popular areas of the park. We camped at Ruby's Inn RV Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

The free Rainbow Shuttle is a Bryce Canyon 3 hour bus-tour of the park. It was great! Our driver gave us history, geology, and other information that was so interesting. Reservations are required. The restaurant at Ruby's Inn puts on a very good buffet breakfast at a very reasonable price.

Red Canyon RV Park and Campground, Panguitch, Utah

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $39.00
Overall Rating:

This park was a real disappointment. First the Pros: It had good cell phone reception and full hook-ups. Now the Cons: The campground is far from both Bryce and Panguitch. Unappealing grounds with no shade, no amenities other than hook-ups and we were assigned to a site that we could not reach level even using our jacks. No written materials provided upon check in. Right on the highway with lots of road noise. Less than helpful staff. There is no shuttle or any other transportation to Bryce Canyon available, so a 20 mile drive each way was required. Lots of older, full-time rigs. We decided to forfeit our one-night stay charge and moved closer to the park. We camped at Red Canyon RV Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

Kodachrome Basin State Park, Cannonville, Utah

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $27.00
Overall Rating:

This park was wonderful! The sites are well designed, with asphalt roads, well graveled and level sites, with shade providing trees, and awesome views of the colorful canyon walls and pipes. The showers were amazing with spacious, newly tiled showers with both handheld and waterfall shower-heads. The park was remarkably clean and well maintained. There were viewpoints along the way to the park from the road and within the park itself, all of which were outstanding. This was one of the best state park campgrounds we have ever stayed in. As others have mentioned there was that there was no wifi or cell phone reception within the campground - but no wonder, as the campground was surrounded on 3 sides with majestic colored cliffs! This is a trade-off well worth making. We camped at Kodachrome Basin State Park in a Motorhome.

Cannonville / Bryce Valley KOA, Cannonville, Utah

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $51.00
Overall Rating:

This park is clean and very well maintained. From our site there were wonderful views of the surrounding colorful hills. We received a discount because the site that we selected had been damaged by torrential downpours in the area two days before our arrival. Campground maintenance staff (of which there were plenty) helped us with leveling our motorhome in the site and all was good! There was a lot to do in the park including a nice pool, small store, and pancake and bacon breakfast for $6.00. We would be happy to stay there again at the price we paid. We camped at Cannonville / Bryce Valley KOA in a Motorhome.

Sandcreek RV Park and Campground, Torrey, Utah

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $37.00
Overall Rating:

After reading the earlier reviews about new owners who were upgrading the park, we were very disappointed in what we found. First the Pros: Good wifi, clean (though very old and tired) restrooms and a nice view from some sites of red cliffs in the distance. Cons: Sites going every which way, graveled throughout with patches of brown grass but mostly tall weeds. Office open only after calling on the phone (not all cell phones had service here and we had to make a call to open the office for a camper trying to check in). There was a large red shipping container to the right of our site and junky property to the west. Picnic table was a wreck. A bare bones experience with prices more commensurate with much nicer parks. We camped at Sandcreek RV Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

Pony Express RV Resort, North Salt Lake, Utah

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $39.00
Overall Rating:

This was a very nice park. Pros: Close to the city. Very clean. Sites were not crammed together. Sites were concrete and very level. The spaces were well maintained with a grassy area next to each site and a newer and well maintained picnic table at each site. The roads were large and easy to navigate. The camping area is gated. The clubhouse includes a pool table, foosball, nice little store that carries essentials, RV supplies, and gifts at reasonable prices. Other amenities included a pool, horseshoes, a nice fenced playground, outdoor chess, free coffee, and satellite showers and restrooms. Cons: The park is close to a freeway and freeway noise can be loud especially when the trucks use their engine brakes. This is more noticeable in the sites in the back rows. The park switched to a new internet service during our stay and it was very slow during peak hours. We camped at Pony Express RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Cowboy RV Park, Pocatello, Idaho

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $37.00
Overall Rating:

We were so appreciative of the folks at this RV park. We had reservations at another - there was a mix-up and suddenly we had no place to stay on Friday and Saturday nights. We found Cowboy RV park on the internet and called - of course they were full up. When we explained our dilemma, they said that we could stay in a spot they usually did not rent out as it was not very level. It worked out fine as we could level using our jacks. We were so thankful to have a nice place to stay. The folks at the desk said that another RV was moving out the next day and we could move to their spot which was one of the nicest in the park. The park itself was a mix of short and long term stays. It was clean and the staff was so friendly - even giving us a newspaper each day! Our second spot had a large tree for shade, nice picnic table and plenty of room to sit outside in our lawn chairs. The clubhouse was nice with a great little library and laundry that was clean and and reasonably priced at $1.25 a load. We camped at Cowboy RV Park in a Motorhome.

South Beach State Park, Newport, Oregon

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

This is a great park! Pros: The pads are asphalt, and the sites large and grassy. It is a short walk on paved or sandy trails to reach the beautiful long sandy beach or you can drive to beach at the day-use area. At the center of each loop is a large grassy area that kids love to play in with the friends they make at the park. There are miles of paved trails including one that takes you into the south end of Newport - great for walking or biking. At the Hospitality Center, you can rent bikes for $10.00 a day. Morning coffee (and sometimes donuts) is provided at no charge. There is a disc golf course and loaner frisbees are available at not charge from the Hospitality Center as well. While there is no wi-fi at campsites, there is a good signal and comfortable chairs for web-surfing at the The park is well maintained. The park is clean and well maintained. Cons: The only con I can think of is that there is no wi-fi at campsites but there is a good signal and comfortable chairs for web-surfing at the Hospitality Center as well.

Sea Ranch RV Park & Stables, Cannon Beach, Oregon

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $50.00
Overall Rating:

This park sometimes refers to itself in its advertising as a "Resort" and at other times as an "RV Park and Stables." It is neither, as there are a number of tent sites which make it a "campground." Nothing wrong with that, it's just that one expects more amenities at an RV Resort, and no tents at an "RV Park." So we are reviewing this as a campground. Pros: The biggest and most compelling pro is that this campground is well within walking distance of downtown Cannon Beach where there is a lot to see, do, eat and drink (and is right on the ocean). Additionally it is just outside of Ecola State Park which is a very large and beautiful ocean and forest park. The other big pro were the number of rabbits in the park including many babies that provided hours of entertainment as many would come right into your campsite to eat, sleep and play. Cons: The advertised store was closed and had been for some time. The bathrooms, while clean, were old. There were limited sewer hook-ups although there was a dump station right outside of the men's rest room. Might have been difficult for larger rigs to use (ours is 32 feet) without a second person to direct you as it required a u-turn with some backing and forthing to get close. Sites kind of went every which way. The sewer sites were situated in parking lot-like areas. A note: $50.00 a night is a lot, but prices in Cannon Beach are high so, considering the cost of doing business there, the price seemed reasonable. We camped at Sea Ranch RV Park & Stables in a Motorhome.

Boise Riverside RV Park, Boise, Idaho

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

Pros: This park is directly on the green belt. Sites 1-29 back onto a 28 mile paved flat pedestrian walkway and a lovely stream (looks like it was built on a railroad right of way). You couldn't see the stream from the site as it was behind a wall of trees but it was just a few steps into the forested area. There was a large grassy area behind our site which was perfect for reading and people watching as they ambled, rode or jogged along the walkway. (We wouldn't have liked this park as much if we had had been in one of the non-greenbelt sites.) There was a small patio next to our door. There was also a very large picnic area just inside the gate to the park that was very nice and would be a great place to have a larger gathering. The site was level. It was close to all there is to do in Boise. The internet was good. Cons: The sites were tight from side to side. There was no cable, but there was DTV and Dish Network available. Finally, if you are planning to stay a few days, there are no sewer hook-ups but there is a nice dump station in the park. We camped at Boise Riverside RV Park in a Motorhome.

Overall Rating:

Pros: Beautiful setting on Snake River. It is an Oregon Trail historical site with a very nice free (to campers) museum on the grounds. Extra large campsites with graveled parking area and every site benefits from a variety of trees and a large grassy area perfect for reading and talking with passers-by. The campground area itself was beautiful with many different kinds of trees and grass throughout. Restrooms and showers were clean and modern. Cons: There were really no cons. The only things that people might want that were not provided was wi-fi and in-site sewer connections. For us, our Verizon wifi hotspot worked well and the campground sewer dump station was just fine. We camped at Three Island Crossing State Park in a Motorhome.

We loved the museum. It was right within the park, high quality, and very interesting. For anyone thinking of visiting in July, August or the 1st of September, there is a really, really good show provided on certain nights entitled "An Evening on the Oregon Trail. No charge for campers. It was a 90 minute presentation that provided the history of the crossing of the prairie schooners across the Snake at the point of the park (from both the European and Native American standpoints), an engaging demonstration of tools, weapons, and artifacts used by the early trappers, and an awesome one-woman performance drawn from the diaries of the women traveling on the Oregon Trail. The dates for the remainder of 2018 are July 21, August 2, 11, 16, 18, and 30, and September 1, 2018.
