This is a great campground in my opinion, one of the best that BLM offers in this area. Spacious sites for different lengths, lots of restrooms, and great views. It is a dry camping area with no water, dumping, or electric. With a rate of $6 for seniors with Golden Age Pass, it's hard to beat the price. It's a short distance to Dead Horse Point State Park where the rates are 3-5x higher. This makes a good day trip by bicycle or car from here (seven miles away). Bravo to the BLM for providing such campgrounds in an area where commercial campgrounds in Moab are expensive ($35 on average).

This is a nice park in the middle of Havasu City on the lake. No electric or water or sewer hookups but lots of water faucets and a dump station. There are some great views of the lake here and close to city so it's very good for bicycling since there are excellent paved paths in the city itself. For this amount of money, I prefer to have electric and water hookups. Verizon air card had weak signals for internet. Good TV reception using antenna. Not my favorite state park in the excellent Arizona system but OK for a few days.

This is our home park as a member of Western Horizon Resorts. This is a great park with lots of activities, friendly staff and members, and a great location for winter visits to the Palm Desert and Palm Springs areas. My wife and I especially enjoyed the outdoor activities which included hiking in the nearby hills and kayaking at the Salton Sea. Great weather, lots of cinemas, theaters, and sports events to keep one busy. Since we don't have a tow vehicle and carry bikes on the back of our rig, we went on the outdoor hikes with fellow campers, and used the local bus system ($0.50 a ride) to get around the entire valley when not biking or walking. Convenient to shopping centers and lots of shopping. As to previous comments about different sites. All members receive a different site when they enter the park. In my experience, all sites are large and inviting. This is a great park!

This is a Passport America campground and we only payed $14 per night for w/e hookup and WiFi. This is an incredible find on PEI since most places are at least $30 per night. Overall, the campground is very spacious and inviting. The rigs for the Passport America sites are a bit close together on the weekends, but fine during the week. Great owners who were very helpful to us when we needed an extension cord for electric (15 amps). Loved the location (water view in the distance) as we used it as a base for bicycling to the National Park and Stanhope area where they have separate bike trails and then for other days to the Rustico and Cavendish region. Highlight was catching the Fiddlers Weekend with great, great fiddling music! This is the best find on the island given the price. For example, the National Park costs $15 per couple for a day pass plus $35 a night for camping (w/e) for a total of $50 a night. I totally recommend Bayside RV Park!

This is a utility campground good for an overnight stay on the way to Canada or points south. Many seasonal sites lend an appearance of a trailer park. Staff was very friendly in this Passport America park. It has Wi-Fi and hookups with water and electric and sewer. It attracts families and locals, and provides a decent overnight stay for most travelers but lacks aesthetic appeal for a long stay in my opinion. We stayed here in a motorhome on the way to Prince Edward Island.

This is a fine campground overlooking the James River just a few miles from Charlottetown. We bicycled into town on RT 1 for a day excursion, and took the Confederation Trail on the way back. We had a full water view, and went clamming finding plenty for dinner. This is a family campground with lots of kids and we loved it as children of all ages biked up to the pool daily. Obviously a safe haven for families. PEI is one of the great island gems of the northeast, with wondeful bicycling, hiking and kayaking. Average campground prices on PEI run about $30 plus taxes. This is a great place to explore the Charlottetown area.

This is a great family park located on Sebago Lake with most camping a short walk to the lake. Lots of activities around lake including bicycling, beach activities, and especially boating. Not a lot of privacy and very noisy with children of all ages running around having fun. As with most New England State parks...a distant cousin as compared to those in the south or western part of USA. Expensive for what you get at $30 (w/e) up to June 30, and $38 July and August. One of only two campgrounds in Maine with water and electric. Recommend it for young families.

This is a lovely Vermont State Park where you can camp next to the lake. Fishing is excellent with hiking trails abundant. Vermont is into "Old Fashioned" camping sites so no hook-ups which was OK with us since we have solar and a generator as part of our 27 foot motorhome. There are several lakes nearby and biking on the backroads. We have extended for a full week. If one can do without hookups, this is a great find. They do have a dump station and a water source for RVs. Roads are a bit narrow so I'd not recommend any rigs over 30 feet long. The staff is very friendly.

This is an excellent state park in the New Mexico State system. Views are incredible! Great hiking up the Dog Canyon trail. It's hard not to search for Apaches along the way. Staff is very friendly with a very good visitor center. The best thing is we dry camped here free for the first three days before moving to a water/electric site for $4 a night with the annual state park camping permit. I recommend this park for hiking, bird watching, and just plain easy relaxation. Verizon Air Card and cell phone services were outstanding. We'll be back again!
