Lake Corpus Christi State Park, Mathis, Texas

Date of Stay: December, 2018 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

Rate reflects use of Texas State Park pass to waive daily entrance fees. This is a beautiful park. Two separate areas, one full hook up and one with 30A/water only. All sites are pull thru, half circles, some are a little tight but there are plenty for big rigs. There are lots of large shade trees that can be a challenge for slides and larger rigs. Water pressure was good, electric was steady. There is a good park presence in the form of maintenance and ranger staff. The lake itself is very large, very pretty. Several boat ramps, numerous areas for bank fishing. Very nice walking trails and plenty of birds to view, they do have a bird blind area, but it wasn't stocked so we didn't see any bird activity there when we visited. There is an old CCC building here with a viewing area over the lake. It's a very nice state park with knowledgeable and friendly staff. Quick enough drive to town for groceries and there are several restaurants. We enjoyed our visit and would visit again. We camped at Lake Corpus Christi State Park in a Travel Trailer.

There is an HEB in town. We ate at Smolik's BBQ restaurant, in town, (they have location by the freeway). We didn't care for the sauce, but the meat was good, sides ok, and its very popular with the locals. Town is small, not much else to do there. Nearest WM is in Alice, about 30 miles.

Goose Island State Park, Rockport, Texas

Date of Stay: December, 2018 - $18.00
Overall Rating:

Rate reflects use of Texas State Park pass to waive daily entrance fees. First, the cons. Park is very small; roads are tight but with slow speed not hard. The beach side parking is closed for camping and an employee told us there was no plan to reopen it but rather to use it as a day use area. Did not care for the check in procedure. First, watch the speed bumps at the gate, I lost a glass and we went over them very slowly and carefully. If you don't know what space you want, you have to go in, with camper attached, find a space, come back to the gate, with the camper, (you can't park and 'call it in'), you actually leave the park to turn around and go back in again. If you decide to go thru this procedure, instead of just letting them choose a site for you, suggest you pick 3 or 4 sites so when you finally get back up to the front gate, one of them is not already taken. It's a busy park. There are no beach or water view sites available. The good: It is a very pretty park, nice for walking. The waterfront area is nice, plenty for bird watchers to do. There is the Big Tree, a 1000 historic tree nearby. Very interesting history, they have an old CCC building. Rockport is nearby, about 5 minutes across the bridge for restaurants and shopping. Camp sites are well spaced and fairly private. No full hook ups but they do offer a nice large double dump station. Park offers guided birding tours. We enjoyed our visit. Some road noise if you're on the "back row" near the road but it's not bad. Water pressure is good and electric was steady. Their trees took a beating in the last hurricane, but there are signs of healing. If you fish, this would be heaven for you. We camped at Goose Island State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Brazos Bend State Park, Needville, Texas

Date of Stay: November, 2018 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

Rate reflects use of Texas State Parks Pass waiving entrance fees. This is a beautiful park, very quiet while we were there. Indications that it can be quite busy came from very large parking lots and abundant parking spaces located throughout the park. We stayed in the 30amp camping loop, Red Buckeye. Sites are well spaced, allowing room to relax. Some have a slant to them. Electric was steady and worked well. Water pressure was at 45psi. There is no sewer at the sites, but a dump station with 2 drains is located easily on the way out of the loops. Hosts were nice and loop was kept clean. They sell firewood at the camp host sites. Park staff was very friendly, welcoming and knowledgeable; the nature center has set hours. Lots of trees for shade, moss draped oaks. The trails we walked, around 40 Acre Lake and Elm Lake were very easy to walk. There are alligators here, no problem catching a glimpse of them in the water. No boating or swimming here, nice observation tower at 40 Acre Lake. We would visit here again. Very nice park. We camped at Brazos Bend State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Circle The Wagons RV Park , La Veta, Colorado

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

Rate reflects GS Discount. Our 2nd time here. Prices have gone up since our last stay here, but it's still a very nice and clean park. New owners have made a few changes, such as moving dumpster to the back of the property, everything still very neat and clean. Lady in office was friendly and helpful on check-in. We arrived a day after a major hail storm, so understandably there were a lot of leaf and tree debris around but it was being cleaned up. Electric was steady, level sites, hookups are placed well, toward back of site. All sites are back in. Lots of trees for shade. This time we stayed in a "standard" site, not on the river, it suited us fine. Still more loose dogs around than we like to see but many people appear to comply with leash rule. Park is very quiet and comfortable for one night or longer stay. You can walk to town. We would like to visit here again. We camped at Circle The Wagons RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Uncompahgre River RV Park (55+ park), Olathe, Colorado

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $41.00
Overall Rating:

Very nice, clean park. 55+, quiet. The park is tucked into town so there is no highway noise and we heard no trains. Electric was steady, we did not hook up to water/sewer as we only stayed one night. The owners were very friendly, helpful and welcoming. Sites are concrete, pull thrus, lots of shade trees. Only dog we saw not on leash was the owners and he was in the office. Sites are fairly spacious, more than most town parks. Not a lot to do in town, primarily agriculture. This would be a very nice park to linger for a while. They have a "happy hour" twice a week. They offer a laundry room and restroom/showers. We would stay here again.

James M. Robb - Colorado River State Park / Island Acres Section, Palisade, Colorado

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $28.00
Overall Rating:

Nice, small state park. Electric is steady, water pressure is good. Not sure about AT&T but Verizon is very weak here. There is a lot of beautiful scenery, however you are sandwiched between a train track and a major (I-70) interstate, so there is road noise. The train doesn't always blow horns when they pass, but they do occasionally, probably for animals on the track. The sites are spacious, several pull-thru, some have canopies, some do not. There a 4 sections, 2 with full hook ups, 1 for tents and 1 electric only. They do have a dump station. Camp hosts were very active, friendly and visible. Sites are kept clean. We saw numerous dogs off leash, leash rule does not appear to be enforced routinely, there were too many dogs at several campsites which led to excessive barking at every movement. There is a swimming pond, a fishing pond and the Colorado River runs right beside the park. There are several areas to walk and bike in, not sure about boating. The bathhouse was clean when we stepped in. They do offer a washer room, 2 washers $1.50 each and 2 dryers, $1.00 each. They worked very well. Staff was very nice; rangers are visible in the park. We would stay here again. We camped at James M. Robb - Colorado River State Park / Island Acres Section in a Travel Trailer.

Fossil Valley RV Park, Vernal, Utah

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

Rate reflects GS discount. This park is very nice, it is in the middle of Vernal and right off the main highway. It has many mature trees which shade almost every site and muffle noises from the road and nearby businesses. It's a very comfortable place to spend a few days. Electric was steady and worked well, water pressure 65PSI, (we used a regulator) and sewer hook up is convenient, however a tad close to the neighbor's picnic table. Most sites have a picnic table. Road noise decreases a lot at night and did not bother us. The park wifi worked very well. Verizon signal was good, 4G, 4 bar. There is a laundry room, 2 washers/2 dryers $1.75 each, they worked well. There is a charge for the showers. We did not use the restrooms or showers. The park is run by a father/son team. They are very present on the property, friendly and knowledgeable about the area. There are a few long terms here, but they (with one exception) are quiet, neat and clean. There is one old class C motorhome; occupied, but covered with blue tarps, only thing that seems out of place here, but it's on the back of the property and was no bother. There is plenty of shopping, restaurants and things to do here. We would stay here again if in the area. We camped at Fossil Valley RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Fort Bridger RV Camp, Fort Bridger, Wyoming

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $26.00
Overall Rating:

Rate reflects a GS and cash discount for a week. Very nice park just 1 block from the Fort Bridger Historical Site. Electric is steady, boxes look old but work very well. Water pressure was 60PSI but it drops a little when park is busy in the evenings. Sites are generous in spacing, level, dirt and gravel with grass patio area, lots of trees but open sites too. Sites have a nice picnic table. Staff is friendly and keep the park watered and clean. Park host is very nice, very knowledgeable about the local area and can recommend sights to see and places to eat. The washer room was clean, has 2 washers but only one dryer working when we were there. $1.50/2.00. Load did dry within the $2 cycle. Shower/restrooms are individual, we did not use, but they looked clean on quick glance. Verizon is a little weak here, mostly 3G with 2 bars but the parks wifi is very good, fast and consistent. Sites are very long, back to back, mostly they will put you in a pull-though, but there are a few back up. There are monthlies here, but they are along the fence line, all back-ins, they were all very neat and clean. Speed limit was observed in the park. We would have liked to see a dog leash rule enforced. We would visit here again. We camped at Fort Bridger RV Camp in a Travel Trailer.

Highline Trail RV Park, Boulder, Wyoming

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

Rate reflects Good Sam Discount. Sites are large and level, electric is steady, water pressure is a little low at 40psi. Sewer connection at the middle of the site, some extra hose required from back of site. Wifi works most of the time, is fine for checking news, email and light surfing. Verizon has 4G but only 2 bars, however it worked well enough. There is a lot of green grass on this park; the owners are always out and about working. Park is kept very clean. The lady who runs the park is very knowledgeable about things to see and do in the area. Park has about half long term, many workers, some loud early morning diesels, also the noise from the highway can be very loud but it does quiet down at night. For most of the long terms and quite a few guests as well, the dog leash rule is just a suggestion. They do have a dry camp area for both RVs and tents. We would stay here again if in the area.

Daniel Junction, Pinedale, Wyoming

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $26.00
Overall Rating:

Normal rate, no discounts offered. If you are just looking for an overnight stay, this is OK. In no way is it a destination in itself. The electric was steady, we did not hook up to either water or sewer. On the plus side, the wifi worked very well and was fast. There is a store, motel, gas station, deli and a restaurant on the property. This RV park is run down, in need of TLC. There are mostly long term campers, outside unattended dogs, and 'stuff' everywhere. It is a parking lot, all gravel with out of control weeds. There is a towing business located in the RV park, we found that odd. The road into the RV park area is uphill, the East end is very steep. Use the West side to go up and the middle exit to leave. Most of the spaces are very short and all back in, barely any gravel, mostly just dirt and scrub weeds. The staff at check-in was pleasant enough, but vague. They tell you to "pick any site you can fit into". We had to return to the office to get the wifi code. No 30 amp plug, you'll need an adapter. You check in at the same counter where they check out people from the deli, gas station and store so it's a process. The restaurant is very nice and definitely worth visiting, food was very good, prices OK for the area. We would look elsewhere in the future for an RV park, unless this place gets cleaned up. We camped at Daniel Junction in a Travel Trailer.

Buffalo Run RV Park & Cabins, Island Park, Idaho

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

Rate reflects discount for Good Sam. We stayed here a week, there is plenty to do in the area. Park is nice, well maintained by on site owners. Electric is steady, water pressure good, we used a regulator. There is no sewer here as the sites sit lower than the main road and next to a creek. There is a dump station. Park stays fairly quiet, we were not bothered by road noise, its far enough back. There are some cabins, but they are on the "upper" level by the office. There are a few long term spaces, they are also on the upper level by the office. Gravel sites and roads with grass between, each site has a picnic table. Enough room between spaces you can sit out and not be on top of the neighbor. Park wifi worked well. They have washers in the office, it's a $2 wash, but the dryers are free and worked well. Verizon signal for both phone and MIFI was good. Pizza offered there, its very good and priced nice. The owners are very personable, know the area well and make good recommendations for sight seeing and dining. We would stay there again without hesitation. Make a reservation though, this little park stays busy. We camped at Buffalo Run RV Park & Cabins in a Travel Trailer.

Indian Creek Campground, Deer Lodge, Montana

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

Rate reflects a monthly stay at 30amp. Power was steady, pedestals in good condition. Water pressure 85psi, we used a regulator. There is cable tv available at an extra charge, we didn't use it. Utilities located at rear of sites except in monthly area where you might have to run cords and hoses under back of RV. Wi-fi is very iffy, works ok for checking email, news, etc., but very slow. Often times it didn't work at all. "A work in progress" according to staff.

Staff here are very friendly, always working on grass and keeping park clean. This is a family run park, they are very knowledable about the local area and things to see and do. Even though the park is on the freeway, the noise is not that bad, probably due to the amount of trees. It is quiet at night. Downsides were the normal, long term renters don't follow rules, several dog pens with dogs unattended. One dog near us we never saw use a leash, dog just ran around where he wanted to whenever he was out. There were a couple of junky, derelict trailers with trash and debris around them. These were the exceptions but there are a couple of them. A few in the back row are too close. Once a large rig next to a small trailer had an awning out, it was less than 4 inches off the neighboring trailer. If you're just staying a night or a few nights to visit local sites, this is a good option for a park. We would definitely return for a few days, but would not stay a month again. We camped at Indian Creek Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $24.00
Overall Rating:

Rate reflects weekly with military discount. This park is very nice and worth a visit. First, it looks just like the pictures on the internet, authentic. Second, the owners are on property and very active, involved and it shows. They work hard to keep it clean and neat. They are friendly and very knowledgeable about the area. There is a restaurant on the property, open Thur-Sun. Food was very good, the pizza great! There is an outdoor eating area as well. They have an extensive video lending library. Campsites are gravel, each with full hook ups and a picnic table. All the sites back up to the North Fork of the Salmon River. Although you are close to Hwy 93, the road noise is not bad and quiets considerably at night. Electric is steady, water pressure good at 48psi. Hook ups are convenient, at back of site. There is no Verizon signal here at all. Not sure about ATT but would doubt it. The parks wifi does work; it works better on a phone than a laptop. It is fine for checking news, email, general and light internet surfing. The surrounding scenery is hillsides, trees. We saw antelope across the road from the park, others have seen elk. Bring what you need or prepare to take a drive. Nearest grocery store is 26 miles in Salmon. There is a small general store in North Fork, but it's very pricey. There are no laundry facilities here. We would stay here again. We camped at Waters Edge RV Park & Pizzaria (formerly Josephine's RV Park) in a Travel Trailer.

Rate reflects Good Sam discount. Electricity was steady worked well, water pressure low. This is a very nice park, very clean, actually looks like it's pictures on the internet. The gravel sites are level and spaces are wide enough you feel you can sit out without being on your neighbor. There is some road noise during the day but it quiets down at night. Would have rated this park a little higher except the restaurant was closed and two of the three washing machines were out of order, however price is good $1 to wash and $1 to dry. Check-in was friendly and efficient, lady in office was familiar with local area. Every site has a picnic table and barbecue grill and most have trees so there is shade available. This is overall a very nice park and we would stay here again. We camped at Mountain View RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Rate reflects a GS discount. Park is on the main highway and quite noisy most of the time. Quiets down a little from about 9PM until about 4AM. Sites are close together. Electric works well and is steady. Water pressure good, we used regulator. Water connection is awkward, low to the ground, suggest cleaning before use. No leash rule enforced here, many dogs running loose. A lot of long timers and workers, numerous derelict units around. Park does fill up nearly every night. Wifi is free, but is absolutely minimal, can only check headlines and maybe if you're lucky, email. Didn't work most of the time. We stayed here several days while touring the area but we would probably look for an alternative. It would work for a night. We camped at Valley View RV Park in a Travel Trailer.
