Convenient spot across the river from the arch. Expensive, $53 flat rate for everybody, big or small ($47 with Good Sam discount). Smaller rig side less crowded. Metro station at corner of casino parking lot. You can also bike or walk across the bridge. Friendly staff. Trains very close to park but we love the sound and we slept well. Safe and close to downtown. What else do you want, maybe $35 per night rates. Pool in hotel was standard, nice after a sweaty day in the zoo.

We arrived on the 4th of July and a very friendly lady came out to point us our spot, after we called a number because the office was closed. We had plenty of choice. Very large spots with gravel parking surrounded by grass and large trees. RV areas in between mobile homes but widely set up and very quiet at night. Bike trail along the river on the other side of the road with lots of running and biking activity. Walking bridge across the river close by. We watched the fireworks from there; best I've seen in a long while. Very clean bathrooms and laundry. Pool is big and the kids had a great time. Unexpectedly nice stay!

Date of Stay:

Only one hour and twenty minutes from Wichita Falls, on the Army Base. Clearest lake of Oklahoma with sandy beach and water slides. Great fishing from shore or boat, we did both. No wake lake. Great views of the mountains. Good biking on the back road on base. Store was not stocked very well, apart from some ice cream. Because of the full hookups nobody uses the bath house much and this could be improved. Cabins also available. You can rent all kinds of stuff for on the water. We love this place.

Beautiful park at Monument Lake, about 10 miles west of Weston. The Highway of Legends is very scenic both ways, from La Veta in the north or Trinidad in the east. Park has cabins, RV spots, and tent sites, all under big Ponderosa pine trees. The lake is stocked with trout every 10 days, and we managed to catch a bunch with salmon eggs. There is a restaurant, and you can even rent a motel room for the night. Lake is gorgeous. People are friendly. Bath house very old but clean. We spotted a bear that was roaming around. Glad we drove the extra miles.

This Park is situated between Highway 160 and the Rio Grande on the east side of South Fork. The cottonwoods give plenty of shade. We were lucky to get a river side spot for one night. All facilities are nice and clean. Did not try the Wi-Fi because my iPad with AT&T 4G performed perfectly. Caught a brown trout with my fly rod, making it a perfect stay.

Location unbeatable! Short (safe) walk to underground, then few minutes to Manhattan. We took an overflow spot in the back and paid $53. There's always room between the boats that are parked for repair or storage. Bathrooms and showers clean, washer and dryer cheap @ $1.75 and $1.50. Hosts and guards friendly (enough;) and everybody I met was happy to be there and pay $75+ for water and elec or $53 for a dry spot. Make sure you have enough water because there's only one 'dirty' hose at the dump station. Stayed during the weekend with wife and three kids and we had a great time visiting New York. Will use this camp ground again and recommend it to everybody.

This is an Army Corps park. It is on a hill side with some tricky turns and parking for some spots. There were some big family gatherings at some spots because of the weekend but it was quiet when needed. There were lots of kids. The swimming was ok but on a very slippery concrete slab that runs into the water. There is no WiFi and phone reception for internet was minimal. There is a clean bath house. There is a strange atmosphere and no personal touch to campground.

This small park is a few miles away from the highway. There is lots of love put in this RV park and that shows! There are nice shaded spots and very large pool to cool down. Kids can fish in the pond or play in the game room. The owner is very friendly and helpful. The WiFi is working well. We stayed an extra night because the kids had such a good time, as did we ourselves. We saw earlier reviews about this park and decided to take a look. We are glad we did!

Small park in Tybee Island. Close to Fort Pulaski that you must visit. One of the reasons to pick this park was to see the Fort and also because the Skidaway Island SP was such a disappointment; no pool, no Internet, nothing but big trees and bugs. Liked the air-conditioned bath house and most folks are friendly. Lot of tattoos in the pool;) Look around careful before you pick a spot, some are tight or close to the road. Internet mostly useless, 3G connection did the job. Location nice, price steep. Lot of people seem to come back to this park, maybe to show their new tattoos. Spot 39 was a good spot. Wouldn't mind staying again but next summer we plan a cooler destination.

Nice campground north Durango. Heated pool and Durango-Silverton steam train goes right through the campground. Free trolley runs every twenty minutes to town and back until 10pm. Wi-Fi was good next to laundry room, otherwise not so great. We bought tubes in town and the kids played in the river for hours. A black bear visited our site but fled the scene quickly. No better place to stay in Durango.

One of the most spectacular views ever seen. So quiet you can hear a bee buzz from a distance! Early morning and later evening very few people around. Nice park ranger entertained the kids with story about animals in the park. She was very sweet. We camped here and it was very hot but electricity and A/C saved the day. Do not miss this park and plan two hours to drive in and visit when you go to arches or canyon lands. We did not make reservations and arrived before noon with plenty sites available.

Nice location, awesome pool, big trees in backup spots 1-5. Good restaurant on the river next to park. With military discount and three kids (6,10,13) the 'damage' was $51, wow!!! Park was empty when we arrived at noon, 1/3 full at dinner time. Killer pool, kids loved it. $51 vs 101 degrees F means KOA wins!

Date of Stay:

New park next to highway (reason for -1 point because of traffic noise), with friendly staff and campers, very clean facilities and nice pool. Traffic noise was no problem for us. Very reasonable rate in perfect location close to Salt Lake City. Stayed for three nights to explore SLC. Seems like they will be building a car wash next door soon. You will like this park!

Date of Stay:

All of West Yellowstone was booked and this was our last available option. Very large grassy pull through site (very large price also but typical for this area) with full hookups. WiFi was fast. Has a large laundry and shower facility. Filled up on propane. Lots of room everywhere and away from town (7 miles). Nice views all around and friendly people. Would stay here again to avoid town.

We arrived at the campground without making a reservation around 10:30 AM. Although the sign at the entrance stated 'FULL' we found out at the reception that there was room for our RV and we booked two nights. Water and sewer hookup, but no electricity and no generator allowed. Next to the campground is a large shop where I bought my fishing license (required to fish Yellowstone), a gas station with reasonable prices ($3.05 for regular), propane and a vehicle repair shop. A good place to bed down after a busy day touring the park. Be prepared to run your heater during the night. And pack your fly rod and camera!
