Trails West RV Park, Shelby, Montana

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $21.00
Overall Rating:      

RV park is behind Best Western. We had a relatively level gravel pullthru site. Interior roads part pavement, part gravel. Check in at lobby desk in Best Western. Park looks to be only a few years old. Services/hookups are in excellent condition. BW wifi service does not "reach" the RV park. We were there for only a single night (en route to Canada); a great place for that purpose. We camped at Trails West RV Park in a Motorhome.

We entered/exited the park by driving onto the Shopko parking lot and using the Best Western driveway (between the BW and the Shopko). Part of that road/driveway is VERY pot-holed... go slow to avoid "rocking violently".

Sturgis RV Park , Sturgis, South Dakota

Date of Stay: July, 2015 - $13.00
Overall Rating:      

Easy to / easy from / easy in / easy out. Relatively new (opened in ~2006). All the pull through sites are level and spacious as are the back in sites; the pull in sites are on terraces giving great views of the town/valley. Every site has 50/30/20, water and sewer and a picnic table. Excellent wifi. We HIGHLY recommend this park to anyone either as a one night stopover or for a week or more of visiting the Black Hills of South Dakota. We camped at Sturgis RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is easily the best-kept secret in the Black Hills area. Sturgis is a 20 minute drive to Spearfish, less to Deadwood or a gorgeous 60 mile scenic drive to Mount Rushmore, Jewel Cave, etc. A day trip could be to Wall Drugs, south into the Badlands NP with stopovers at Mount Rushmore, Jewel Cave and Deadwood on your return. Rapid City offers 'big city' shopping only 30 minutes from the park.

Chimney Rock Pioneer Crossing, Bayard, Nebraska

Date of Stay: July, 2015 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

This was our third time to stay here over the past 5 years. It was raining when we arrived, had been for a couple of days. Interior roads are good gravel (our coach did not sink nor make ruts) and lawns between sites are beautiful. Park owner checked us in; he went "way beyond his job description" to make us welcome. This park is immediately north of Chimney Rock; the spire is lighted at night and makes for a fantastic view from our RV. We highly recommend this park for a night or a week for a quiet, relaxing time surrounded by nature and nurtured by great camp hosts/owners. We camped at Chimney Rock Pioneer Crossing in a Motorhome.

Valley View RV Park, Island Park, Idaho

Date of Stay: June, 2014 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a clean, well maintained park with spacious, relatively level sites and very easy off/on to highway 20. The lady who greeted us on the driveway and the fellow who parked us were a delight to encounter at the end of a long day of driving: welcoming, friendly and helpful. The lady at the reception desk was unbelievably rude. The rate per night was considerably higher than advertised on the Passport America website. Although the park says it offers Wi-Fi it is Wi-Fi in name only. I experienced better speed and dependability with my old dial-up modem of years gone by. From a purely physical point of view this park should rate a 6 or a 7 but the way in which my wife was treated while negotiating our stay at the (vastly inflated) Passport America rate warrants no more than a 3 (and even then I am being generous). Bottom line: if you want a nice site with unacceptable Wi-Fi at an inflated price while being badly treated by check-in staff this definitely is the place for you. We will not stay here again... if we cannot find a similarly optioned RV park in this area (and there are lots of other parks nearby) for 30$/night or less we will simply stop sooner or drive further. We camped at Valley View RV Park in a Motorhome.

Round Valley RV Park (formerly Challis Valley RV Resort), Challis, Idaho

Date of Stay: June, 2013 - $17.00
Overall Rating:      

Highway 93 passes through this small town. The RV park is easy off / easy on. Owners/operators are helpful and friendly. Our cost reflects Passport America membership (50% of regular). Nicely graveled sites: wide, level and very long... the pull through assigned to us easily accommodated our motor home and toad. Wide interior roads made site access/egress very easy. Quiet and dark at night; good sleeping. No security. EXCELLENT utilities (our power post contained four receptacles: one 20 amp, two 30 amp, one 50 amp. Good water pressure. Ground level sewer connector. Good AT&T signal. Acceptable WiFi. A great place to over night while en route; would be OK for a few days stay if one had reason to be in the Challis area. We would definitely stay here again if traveling north or south on Idaho 93. We camped at Round Valley RV Park (formerly Challis Valley RV Resort) in a Motorhome.

Blue Water Resort, Garden City, Utah

Date of Stay: June, 2013 - $17.00
Overall Rating:      

The staff is friendly, courteous, and helpful. This is a membership park that apparently accepts "public campers" (at a "discouraging" rate/day). On the plus side, this is an RPI park, and our rate reflects our RPI membership. The access road is poorly identified: there is a sign along the highway that is of value only to SOUTH bound travelers; that sign says "Hotel on the Beach" in big letters followed by "@ Blue Water Resort" in very small print beneath. The signs on the gate post are almost invisible and read "Blue Water Beach". There is no security although everyone entering the property must do so through the gate or via the beach/water. The sites are large, level, beautifully grassed and VERY, VERY well maintained. Lots of healthy, mature trees, none of which presents a driving hazard. The park sits on the shore of Bear Lake and offers boat launching and fueling, SeaDoo rentals, swimming, horseshoes, etc. In addition to the RV sites, cabins and condos, there is a beachfront hotel. Interior roads are gravel and are treated to keep the dust down. A majority of the RV sites are "shared utilities" making many of the sites "nose in for motorhomes" (thus giving a motorhome windshield a view of another RV). A public paved walking/biking path runs in front of the park. There is a small convenience store directly across the street from the park and a very good dinner/playhouse within walking distance. Good AT&T service. We asked for and were given a site that permitted good Dish satellite reception. Wi-fi "comes and goes" and there are only two antennas for this entire park. Unlike some RPI/membership parks we have been in, this membership park treated us as if we were park members. Fantastic weather and lots to do and see in area. We would gladly stay here for a few days again. This is a family park: kids everywhere, drive carefully! We camped at Blue Water Resort in a Motorhome.

Fossil Valley RV Park, Vernal, Utah

Date of Stay: June, 2013 - $35.00
Overall Rating:      

No security. All pull through. Easy access. Interior roads are barely adequate for navigation (big 5th wheels are challenged in the turns). Lots of "permanent residents" in RVs. Some are well maintained, some trashy and abandoned looking. Park is run like KOA (Keep On Adding). I told owner/manager we wanted only 50 amp and water, no sewer or dumping. He charged us for full 50 amp service, higher than his published price for 50 amp and water, and then he tacked on another dollar "for using air conditioning" (??? we were already paying for 50amps... what gives ???). We avoid the Salt Lake City traffic when going north/south but, in the future, simply avoid stopping in Vernal. We camped at Fossil Valley RV Park in a Motorhome.

Mobile City RV Park, Grand Junction, Colorado

Date of Stay: June, 2013 - $31.00
Overall Rating:      

A gravel parking lot but very easy access from/to the BUS-70 highway and from there onto I-70. No security. Very level sites, all pull-through, quiet (although we did hear a couple of trains passing on the other side of BUS-70). Great services: water/sewer/WiFi/AT&T/50 amps. Lots of trashy looking mobile homes around the outside of the RV lots but we had no problems with any of the "permanent residents". A very good park for one overnight night when passing through Grand Junction. We camped at Mobile City RV Park in a Motorhome.

Fun Valley Campground, South Fork, Colorado

Date of Stay: June, 2013 - $58.00
Overall Rating:      

Our rate includes a week of square and round dancing but does NOT include the "food package". The "just camping rate" looks to be about 25/day plus taxes. Assortment of sites: "parking lot", treed, level, not so level, etc. Located in spectacular valley, on a river (South Fork of Colorado, I believe). Park has stocked private fishing ponds at additional cost. A mixture of 15amp and 30amp power (some of the posts have 50amp plugs but they are not hooked up. It's a long drive from here to anywhere. Nearby towns are small and prices reflect the lack of serious competition and the short season. Our only reason for going to this park is because of the square/round dancing but lots of non-dancing campers return year after year. Beats me why, but maybe they know something I don't. We camped at Fun Valley Campground in a Motorhome.

Vallecito Resort, Bayfield, Colorado

Date of Stay: June, 2013 - $16.00
Overall Rating:      

Well treed and well maintained, older, built by CCC park. Sites vary in size and shape as dictated by roadways among the mature trees. Very accommodating and friendly owner / manager (lives on site). No security. No AT&T cell signal. Under capacity Wi-Fi (good in-rig signal but not enough bandwidth). Difficult to use satellite antenna due to trees. Park models and 'permanent trailers' scattered throughout park belonging to very friendly and welcoming seasonal residents. Lots of socializing including weekly square/round dancing and onsite national round dance teacher/cuer). Short drive to lake and good lakeside restaurants. Good AT&T service. Hiking in San Juan National Forest and casino in Igncio, NM. Short /scenic drive to Durango, CO for shopping, services, and tourist attractions. Our rate reflected Passport America membership. We are considering staying for a month or more during 2014. We camped at Vallecito Resort in a Motorhome.

Great park. Level sites. Extra wide interior roads. Full service hookup: 50 amps. Quiet, no traffic noise. From/to I-40: easy in, easy out. Motor home and toad pull-through, refueled nearby with no problem. Would stay here again in a heartbeat. We camped at USA RV Park in a Motorhome.

Radium Valley Vacation Resort, Radium Hot Springs, British Columbia

Date of Stay: August, 2012 - $14.00
Overall Rating:      

This campground rates a 9 or a 10 based solely on amenities and upon location/area. It rates a 1 or a 2 for how we (and other RPI "guests") were/are treated. This is an ownership / membership / rental park. The standard rental for an RV site (15/30/50 amp, water, sewer) is 69/night. We, however, booked through RPI (90 days in advance; the park knew we were coming) and our rate was 13.75/night. When we checked in we were told "RPI people get dry camping but we've upgraded you to water and power". Our assigned site was in the undeveloped area among piles of sand, gravel and debris from trees. It was dusty and bumpy; in any other campground this would be the "maintenance yard". We had a post with a 15 amp duplex and a water faucet. The circuit breaker was in a locked shed. After two nights we were permitted to move to one of two 30 amp posts (still in the gravel pit.) A day later - after we (and others) phoned RPI - we were moved to a "real RV site". This park sells memberships touting "RPI access to great parks all over Canada and the USA" while treating incoming RPI guests as unwanted visitors. Our experience with RPI has been consistently good; this park left a bad taste in our mouths (and that is very unfair to RPI and to all other membership park systems in the "RPI family".) Setting up three times in one week is not our idea of "a good park". We will not stay here again. We camped at Radium Valley Vacation Resort in a Motorhome.

Westwind RV Park, Chetwynd, British Columbia

Date of Stay: July, 2012 - $32.00
Overall Rating:      

This is an RV parking lot behind a nice looking motel. Pull through sites are relatively level and will accommodate a coach and toad. Utilities are scattered. We needed to join two sewer hoses to reach the outlet. Easy on / easy off highway but the entranced is very potholed which caused our RV to sway side to side even though going only 3 mph. One row has young poplar trees, but our row was merely narrow. Very good Wi-Fi at no extra cost. No gate, fence or security of any kind. Suitable park for one overnight stay while passing through Chetwynd. Our rate reflects Good Sam membership. We camped at Westwind RV Park in a Motorhome.

Acacia Grove RV Park, Spences Bridge, British Columbia

Date of Stay: July, 2012 - $33.00
Overall Rating:      

There was only us and one other RV that night. Sites are very long and quite level with lots of tress and grass. Very friendly owner/manager. Campground is adjacent to Thompson River. We walked into the village and across the local bridge; a pleasant walk but nothing of note (no heritage homes, no business area, etc.). We are fulltimers and, thus, we need Wi-Fi to keep in touch, to manage finances, etc. This park promises Wi-Fi but could not deliver. We have two new laptops (one of them a 5 month old HP Pavilion with an i7 processor) both with superb Wi-Fi components; we could not get connected long enough to even see if we had email, let alone read any messages or access any websites. Worse, however, were the trains that run day and night on the tracks: one on each side of the river. Bottom line: at 33 dollars for a water/sewer pull through, this park is overpriced when one considers the limited amenities and noisy ambiance. If we were to be in the Spences Bridge area again, we would stay in one of other parks: further from the tracks. We camped at Acacia Grove RV Park in a Motorhome.

Junipers Reservoir RV Resort, Lakeview, Oregon

Date of Stay: May, 2012 - $16.00
Overall Rating:      

This park is a bit out of the way but well worth the drive to get to it. We adjusted our route (from Nevada to the Pacific coast) to come to this park because of the rvparkreviews comments/ratings; we would come here again if/when we are anywhere in this vicinity. Forty very spacious, level sites on a working ranch; large trees separate most sites; in-rig Wi-Fi. The park and buildings are meticulously cleaned and maintained with the cleanest laundry we've used in our 11 years of being 'on the road'. A number of hiking trails (we did the 6.5 mile "ranch tour road" on foot...an easy walk and most enjoyable). Our rate reflects Passport America avg/night for our 4 night stay. We camped at Junipers Reservoir RV Resort in a Motorhome.
