About Bob Nelson

Currently we have a Arctic Fox Camper on a 2015 GMC 3500 DRW. Retired old people, but only old in age. Travel with a service dog (golden doodle). Often we have a 16' cargo trailer behind us with a Chev Tracker in it, so we look for long sites..

Lake Pleasant RV Park, Bothell, Washington

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $48.00
Overall Rating:      

This is really the only rv park in the area... The lake is really a pond that is spring fed and a great wildlife area.... Some of the geese are out of control and lots of poop.. watch where you walk.. Very full in 2017 and hard to get a site... Sure miss previous managers Sandy and Jeff... No more potlucks or breakfast... We camped at Lake Pleasant RV Park in a Truck Camper.

Overall Rating:      

This park should be held as a positive example to all other parks... Clean, paved lots with very green grass, tables, power, water, dump, level, and incredible staff/host. Nice warm swimming pool, enclosed dog area, rec room, plus, plus, plus.. Escorted to our site. This is our third stay here.... we will be back. Talked to a friendly neighbor and identified our next RV.... We camped at Mountain Home RV Park in a Truck Camper.

Nice park, but sewer was too far from power, so we could not use... Trains and hwy noise, but not bad.... We did not use other services... Left early next morning. Picnic table had been taken to the long term site next to us... so not available.. We camped at Phillips RV Park in a Truck Camper.

Highline Lake State Park, Loma, Colorado

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $20.00

Nice park, but check the schedule.... As we were leaving, hundreds of bicycle folks were arriving for the 18 hours of Fruita.... Major mountain bike race... This was our second stay at a CO state park... at least this time we were not charged for a day pass on the towed. We camped at Highline Lake State Park in a Truck Camper.

Nice state park.... a little disappointed in the pricing... 20 for the park was a good price, but 7 for a day pass, and then another 7 for a day pass on towed vehicle was a bit much... Dump station at exit. We camped at Crawford State Park in a Truck Camper.

Overall Rating:      

Got the last site.... This is really for longer term stay folks.... I think we just got here as someone left.... They made special arrangements for us in the form of early morning snow... probably 6-8". nice extra feature .... We did not have access to restroom, showers, or the rec room.... no accommodation for folks arrive after the office closes... We camped at Clear Creek RV Park in a Truck Camper.

Nice campground, but very few level sites... This could easily be changed, but the managers fail to see that. Fire pit was clean, table nearby. Dump Station at Main Campground. Stayed one night.. Light snow several times. We camped at Sunset Campground (NPS Campground) in a Truck Camper.

We drove the large loop out of Bolder per recommendation by visitor center... Great trip, 4 hours. We felt the canyons in the Burr trail were much better than Zion and a lot less crowded... If you start in the Bolder area, the road is paved for about half the route and then dirt/sand... We had 4x4, but needed unless it rains..

Zion RV and Campground, Mount Carmel, Utah

Date of Stay: April, 2017 - $53.00
Overall Rating:      

Terrible camp, but close to East Entrance to Zion. Worth it?? Questionable. several camps near Mt Carmel Junction that might be a better option. Dump outlet was about 8" above ground which made if difficult to use. Good wifi at the great laundry, lounge and hot showers. Probably the only redeeming factor. A little effort by the owners could make this a really nice park. Pull through sites on the upper end were 59.00. We camped at Zion RV and Campground in a Truck Camper.

Shady Acres RV Park & Campground, Green River, Utah

Date of Stay: April, 2017 - $38.00
Overall Rating:      

Nice park, friendly people, nicest enclosed dog park we have ever found... An area for both large and small dogs. We stayed two nights for some sight seeing stuff. We would stay again. I think our site was designed for two rigs traveling together... if trailers, then both doors would open to each other and no room for awnings. 10 mph speed limit, but few observed it, especially staff. There appeared to be no effort to water grass... April and very, very dry.. We camped at Shady Acres RV Park & Campground in a Truck Camper.

Signal Mountain Campground (NPS Campground), Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming

Date of Stay: October, 2016 - $12.00
Overall Rating:      

Get in early; first come, first serve. This was our first stay here, and picked a no hook up site. Self contained really is an asset. $47 is a bit steep for an electric site, on poorly maintained roads, and small dirty campsites. Lots of trash around. Dump station if needed. We left it better than we found it. Probably will avoid this site in future trips. We camped at Signal Mountain Campground (NPS Campground) in a Truck Camper.

Lots of improvements in the past few years.... Fairly clean, and an incredibly noisy gen set that ran all day.... A lot of people applauded when they shut it down at 8pm... Elk in camp, and a very large bull bison... nights were quiet. This was not our first visit to Yellowstone, and hope to be back again...

Tips for other Campers:

Take the trolley in Astoria: get on/off at the Wet Dog Saloon.

Next day visit the Maritime museum and get some tuna fish/chips at the Bow Picker.

Next day, take a nap, then walk on the beach, or drive on it if you have 4wd.

Next Day, Bouy 9 for dinner.

Next morning, Arnies Café for a huge breakfast.

Next, next, next, lots to do. Pretty hard to get bored here.
